Chapter 3: Those Flaming Arrows
The samurai was well prepared to delay time for St. Nick to continue crafting his sword for himself. Jack Frost was in no mood to play with the samurai.
"Let's just get this over with" said Jack Frost.
Jack Frost then began to attempt to make the roof the samurai was on quite slippery, but the samurai was able to out maneuver Jack Frost at every turn. The samurai then began to fire some flaming arrows at Jack Frost, one of the arrows ended up hitting Jack Frost melting part of him.
"Bah, lucky shot, you won't be so lucky yourself!" roared Jack Frost.
Jack Frost then continued to attack the samurai by launching a barrage of icicles at the samurai, but the samurai was able to dodge them all in the nick of time. The samurai then began to fire more flaming arrows at Jack Frost, but Jack Frost was able to dodge the attacks and created an ice shield around himself.
"See how you can beat that samurai!" laughed Jack Frost.
The samurai was quite determine to prove otherwise, he kept on firing those flaming arrows at Jack Frost which began to melt his shield.
"You bothersome pest!" roared Jack Frost who then unleashed several ice balls targeting the samurai.
Jack was able to dodge the oncoming ice balls that were coming his way, he then began to fire his flaming arrows continuing to hit Jack Frost every time Jack Frost ended up trying to repeat the same attack. The samurai continued his attacks on Jack Frost which began to amuse Aku as he was nothing more than a mere snowman watching the two fight.
"Hmm, very interesting, Jack Frost doesn't seem to do that well being on fire" laughed Aku.
The shape-shifting wizard then decided to help out Jack Frost by using his laser eyes to cause trouble for the samurai. The samurai did his best to dodge the lasers that were coming toward him, and thought up of a plan. The samurai raced toward Jack Frost as Aku continued to use his lasers on the samurai, the samurai ends up leaping right in the nick of time where Aku's lasers end up hitting Jack Frost instead.
"Hey, whose side are you on?" roared Jack Frost who wasn't happy with Aku.
"Just trying to do my best to squash the samurai" replied Aku.
"Well aim carefully with those lasers next time!" roared Jack Frost.
Jack Frost then continued his attack against the samurai by continuing to shoot the ice balls targeting the samurai at every turn. The icy villain attempted to do his best, but the samurai ended up firing the flaming arrows at the icy villain to which it ended up damaging Jack Frost to the point where Jack Frost had to make a tactical retreat from the battlefield.
"Bah, this is too much, you handle this pest!" roared Jack Frost as he headed off away from Santa's village.
"Just like things should always be" laughed Aku as he changed back into his normal form, "just you and me duking it out!"
Aku then decided to change himself into a reindeer and began to charge at the samurai. The samurai was able to dodge Aku for some period of time, but not before Aku ended up ramming against the samurai sending him flying right into some snow. The shape-shifting wizard then changed himself into an ice wolf and began to sniff the samurai out as the samurai played a game of cat and mouse in trying to hide from Aku while Santa Claus continued to work on the samurai's sword.
"Come out, some out wherever you are" said Aku as he prowled the grounds.
Suddenly some objects were thrown at Aku, but they were not from the samurai, but instead by the elves whom were trying to provide time for the samurai to escape.
"You stop picking on him!" roared an elf whom threw an object at Aku.
"You think you can harm me?" laughed Aku.
Aku then began to fire his laser eyes at the elves whom ran off and barricaded themselves back in their homes. The shape-shifting wizard then continued to search for the samurai, the samurai had reached the blacksmith area where Santa Claus himself was just nearly finished with his sword.
"About time you showed up" said Santa to Jack, "it seems that the pesky Jack Frost ran off, but Aku is still sadly here."
"Yes, how long before my sword is ready?" asked Jack to Santa.
"About a few more minutes I should have it tuned up" continued Santa, "works just as good as the original against Aku."
"I sure hope you're right about it" replied Jack.
Meanwhile, outside, Aku's patience was wearing thin with the samurai not appearing in time.
"If you won't appear samurai, I guess I will have to destroy Santa's village in order for you to appear" laughed Aku.
Aku then changed himself into a dragon again and began to fly around the village. The shape-shifting wizard took a deep breath and started to breath fire upon the village, but not before a flaming arrow ended up striking Aku, though it was nothing more than a pinch compared to the damage the samurai's sword use to do.
"So, you have finally appeared to show yourself samurai, we'll see how far you'll get when I'm done with you" laughed Aku as he landed.
Jack had hoped battling Aku would buy more time for Santa to finish polishing his new sword that'd be just as good as the original in fighting Aku.
