Outside of the pyramid, night-time, the group were teleported right at the entrance after that dreadful trial and now blessed in being surrounded by fresh air and mantled by the starry skies of night and shined by the moon of yesterday's promises. The first thing they done was sit in the nearby rock ruins by the side of the oasis surrounding the dungeon. Florencia and Vanilla were busy trying to heal Johnnathan's leg.
Florencia:...Okay Vanilla. This should do to ease the pain. I suggest find a doctor to look after your leg. It certainly has a broken bone or two.
Johnnathan:..I happen to know a good one in Damaon...But I can get him to meet us in Gel Port.
Vanilla: Eh? Who is it that you can call from that far away? It certainly is not some backalley doctor or some regular one.
Johnnathan picks his hummingbird and contacts Nikolai.
Nikolai: Johnny? How is it going?
Johnnathan: First, I got a Key. The Scarab.
Nikolai: Really? Wow, Henry will be impressed.
Johnnathan: Second, I need you to contact Dr. Cornellius. I have a leg to fix it. Tell him to find me in Gel Port.
Nikolai: Being harshy again, huh? Well, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Very well, we will contact him.
Johnnathan: Thanks Nik. See you and the others in Snake Eyes.
They hung out.
Florencia: Cornellius...Is he a doctor of the crew?
Johnnathan: More or less. He was me and Henry's family's doctor. We call him from time when we need his assistance. He was the one who delivered me and Henry by the way.
Edward: Wait? Does this means he knows that you and your brother...You know...
Johnnathan: Yeah. No big deal. You see he is-
When he was about to end his statement, he and Florencia notices something in the horizon.
West: What is the matter guys?
Florencia: Yeah...Something is coming...
She gets afraid as if a storm was coming.
Then a red-black mist cloud appears on sight and lands in front of they, causing a explosion of dark mist.
???: Well. Well.
They hear a familiar voice and the mist gets more clear, revealing Black who summons his giant shark-fin shapped sword.
Black: Well well well well well well.
Edward: That's...One of Raven's brothers!
Vanilla: N-No way...Why...Why is he here of all the times?
She covers behind Edward in fear.
Black: When I eavesdropped Noir and Moonlight saying someone was after big bro's loot I can't help it but see for myself when no one else wanted to bother it.
Johnnathan: They ignored us?
Black: Yeah. You see, no one was expecting the Pharaoh to fail. But then I just remembered a small group of runts escaped Chill. Then I thought maybe...Just maybe...And turns out I was right.
Florencia than prepares his bow.
Flor: You better step back! We just got through hell already it.
Black: You...I remember you. That fairy bitch who almost killed me in Riverpool. I still didn't get over it.
Then she notices something grim in Black.
Flor: (What? His magic levels are rising...Why? Something triggered this growth?...Was it...Rage?)
Then West and Edward gets in front of Florencia.
Flor: W-What are you two?-
West: You can't fight Flor. You must take Johnny and Vanilla with you.
Edward: We two are in best shape. Just go.
Johnnathan: Hey! I not agree with this! If I break another limb then-
Vanilla releases a magic dust from her palms on Johnnathan.
He deeply falls asleep.
Florencia: Sleep Magic huh?...Very well. Come Vanilla, we-
Vanilla: Cover Johnnathan for now Florencia. Eddie! West! Please hold him for 2 minutes! I have a plan!
West: What?...Tch. Crazy girl. Fine do whatever you want.
Black: No more talk...Just DIE!
Black jumps in the sky and dives rotating vertically towards they.
Edward goes staright with a lunge towards Black with a electric spear but gets throw away by the brute strenght.
Florencia: Howitz! You're okay?
Edward: He is...Strong. I think I could have sprained an ankle.
Florencia: Watch out. Like Nightmare, this one is said to be a son of the Crimsom Knight Diamanta. The strongest of the Royal Maidens.
Black: Tch. I hate when people bring mother's name like this.
He then holds his weapon in reverse.
Black: Just shut up okay?
He shoots a wave attack in the form of a shark fin that leaves a destructive fissure in the way.
West turns his arms into wolf claws and uses his machete to block the attack, but gets pushed away and the wave is split in two that damages even the pyramid.
West: Damn, that was close.
Black: Those arms...You are a werewolf...I fucking hate you guys. You damn mutts killed my mother!
He goes to West and strikes him down, but he blocks with his machete leaving a crater where he was standing.
Flor: ( His strenght rose considerably...Just as I thought, his power rises as he gets angrier.)
West: Ghn!...You lot killed my father as well...Though I don't think your kind is the same as that one from that day...
Black: "That day"...The Werewolf Massacre isn't it?!
He slashes horizontally and launches West far.
West: Gaah!...No good...These burns...Are weakening me...
Black: Die, stray dog!
He charges towards West, but Edward gets in the way.
Black: Back off, human!
Edward: That is my line...Thunderstruck!
Edward strikes his spear to the ground and an electric field is generated and paralyzes Black.
Edward: Lightning is effective against vampires isn't it?
Black: We're Rogues now!
He angrily waves his sword, but Edward jumps and throws his thunder spear.
He strikes with gungir and shocks Black.
West then gets up.
West:...A werewolf being toyed with a vampire....No way in hell!
He turns into a full wolfman and does a shoulder charge at Black and sends him flying.
Edward: Well, I guess that is some time saving.
West: I hope he stops for now.
At a distance, Black was laying on the floor.
He slowly gets up.
Black: I'll kill...kill...kill...KILL! Aaaaaaah!!!
He shouts and gives a mighty roar.
Flor: My Mother Nature...His Magic is on top.
Black then picks his sword with both hands and strikes his sword on the ground, going forward hitting the grounds numerous time like a well. In his way, he was leaving a path of destruction as he was approaching they, like a earthquake coming closer.
Edward:...This is bad.
West: Brace yourself Eddie!
When he was closer to they, Vanilla finishes charging his staff that she was doing for some time.
As Black was about to hit, they dissapear and when he strikes the ground, a third fissure is formed in the pyramid, bigger than the other two.
Black: What?...Where did they go?!
In the waters nearby, the crew appears from above the Gloria. West and Edward falls on the deck and Florencia flies carrying a sleeping Johnnathan and a worn-out Vanilla.
West: Ouch...That was...Teleportation, right?
Edward: Well...Better than the golden wing...Vanilla?
Florencia puts Vanilla on the ground, but she couldn't stay on feet.
Vanilla: Sorry...Teleporting a lot of people...In such a long distance...Tires me....Haaaaa...
She falls asleep in Edward's arms.
Florencia proceeds by slapping Johnnathan's face, waking him up.
Johnnathan: Ouch. What gives-
Flor: No time for explain, get us outta here!
He then notices he is in The Gloria.
Johnnathan: I...I see.
He goes to his helm and fills the ship with darkness and the ship quickly turns and goes far from Ra.
Edward: Wow. We're going fast....West?
He notices West gazing upon Ra with a cold look.
Edward: You okay buddy?
West:...*sigh* Flor, can you take a look at my burns?
Flor: Oh, sure. You too Howitz.
Back in the pyramid, Black was on a rampage.
Black: Damnit! Damnit! DAMNIIIT!
Then 3 other mists lands on the pyramid and reveals to be Raven, Noir and Moonlight.
Moonlight: Oh, there you are little brother. We listened to your screamings. What is the matter.
Said her with a devious smile in her face.
Black: Brother...And you two.
Said him with an upset tone.
Raven: Hey, respect your other elder siblings. Geez. I already gave up on educating you. What about the Scarab?
Black:...I believe it was taken. By that Red Beast and his friends. It seems they used Teleportation.
Noir: The Red Beast?
Moonlight: Oh. Eve's sweetheart? Teehee. She is gonna love this.X3
Raven: Johnny-Boy huh? Well then less bad. If it is him, then it's okay.
Black: Wait brother! We can still reach him.
Noir: I don't think so...I believe they are far away ahead. The nearest way to the shore is about an hour from here. By the time we reach, they would be free from our grasp.
Black: And why the hell you are so calm about it.
Noir: Because being angry at something that doesn't harm it me and I didn't done it is foolish.
Black gets pride punched.
Raven then goes inside the pyramid.
Moonlight: Raven? Where are you going?
Raven: Oh, just releasing some nostalgia. You and Noir take our hothead brother to the Death Crow. Remember, we just docked some kilometers in the North from here.
Moonlight and Noir contains Black and goes back.
Inside the pyramid, Raven walks a bit and notices the mess resulted from the mess Black made it outside. He stretch his arms and cross they bedind his head and rests his back on a fallen rock.
Raven:...It seems quite a show happened here isn't it Pharaoh.
Suddenly an ominous voice surrounds the entire room.
Pharaoh's voice: Oh. Hello there Corv-I mean Raven, right? Yeah...I sure wasn't expecting my first guests being this bothersome.
Raven: It seems you waste my gift. Pity.
Pharaoh's voice: I apologize, my liege. I failed in securing the Scarab for you.
Raven: No problem. At least I know who has it. So, I just need to take it back when the time comes.
Pharaoh's voice: Do you know the invader?
Raven: Yeah...He's my sister's best friend.
Pharaoh's voice: Ohoo. This world is so vast and at the same time too small. But...You two don't seems to be allies. He talked hostile to you.
Raven: You can choose your friends, but not your family's friends. But I guess as long as I have Evening in my palm, I can still use him as an extent.
Pharaoh's voice:...Don't make me laugh Raven. You might be the worst being in this world, but I know you would never treat your siblings like that.
Raven: Hey, don't talk you know me since forever. If I remember correctly, I just offered to give you half of a kingdom and then helped bury this sandbox.
Pharaoh's voice: And I not regretted. I have good eyes you know. I can measure how someone is by just meeting it once. I saw how you were close to your brother Specter. Speaking of which, where he is?
Raven: He's super dead.
Pharaoh's voice: Really? Perhaps I am wrong about of what I said earlier based on your response.
Raven: No, you actually hit the mark. For now, she is the link between me and him.
Pharaoh's voice: May I know what is your move now?
Raven: I think of eliminating the other Dark Lords.They have something I want very much. Ever heard of they?
Pharaoh's voice: You talking about those who shared the same title as your father and what yourself have now, isn't it? Tiamat and...What was it again?...Kyuubi?
Raven: We call her Ninetalis in the West, but that is what she is actually called in the East. She happens to be my next target.
Pharaoh's voice: Interesting. I wish I could be of some assistance.
Raven: I'm starting to feel bad in making you sleep for an hundred years and not digging up you 10 years ago. You see, times were rough on me during those times. But now I want your opinion. What do you think of Johnny-Boy?
Pharaoh's voice: The one in red?...How long do you know him?
Raven: About 10 years. I just saw him again not too long ago. He was just a Eve's playmate as a kid.
Pharaoh's voice: Then I'm afraid you missed two big opportunities. I saw some scary thing inside him. Like a demonic beast slumbering that isjust about to cause a disaster by the time it wakes up.
Raven: Nyehehehe. Is that so? You just get me more...What does people say nowadays..Hyped.
He then starts to exit the pyramid.
Raven: Today has been a very exciting day all in all.
Pharaoh's voice:...Something else happened?
He stops walking and turns.
Raven: You see, in my way to find my other brother who was roaming around here, about before I even reached your kingdom...I just met and had a chat with Tiamat.
