This story takes place 3 months after the events of the Final Story.

EDIT: It IS canon. It's just seperate from the main storyline since, you know, it ended.

Ever since the end of the Alternate Earth crisis, Blue, along with Lilia and Jawo (still intent on having his duel) have taken jobs at a delivery service company in order to make enough cash to continue their travels.

We begin with the gang in the City of Kenta, one their way to make yet another delivery

Jawo: *carrying large boxes* Urgh, can somebody remind me why I'm always lugging the boxes?

Blue: Because, you're more physically built than Lilia and me. So stop your whining and let's go.

Jawo: Yeah, well I've had it!!!

*Jawo throws the boxes to the ground, shattering whatever was inside*

Lilia: Jawo! Pick up those boxes! What's wrong with you!?

Jawo: Uhm..yeah, sorry.

*Jawo picks up the boxes and the group continues through town. Later on, they arrive at the site of their delivery, the house of an old lady*

Blue: *knocks on door* Hello!? Anyone home!? We have some packages for you!!

*The lady opens the door*

Old Lady: Oh my, these must be the porcelain figurines that I ordered last week. Please, let me have them.

Jawo: Sure. Here you go, ma'am.

*Jawo hands the boxes to the lady*

Old Lady: Oh joy! I just have to look at them right now!

*The lady opens the boxes to find only the shattered remains of the figures*

Old Lady: Huh!? Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!

*The lady collapses to the ground*

Lilia: Uhm...lady? Ma'am, are you alright? *poke* Aaah!!

Blue: Lilia, what's the matter?

Lilia: She's...she's dead!!

Blue: Dead!? No way! Jawo, this is your fault!!

Jawo: Run now, blame later! Bye!

*Jawo takes off running*

Lilia: Blue, we can't just leave her here!

Blue: Oh yes we can! Come on!

*Blue grabs Lilia's arm and drags her with him. The group quickly flees the town*

Jawo: *panting* Shoo, that was close. You think anyone saw that?

Blue: I don't think so, but we've got bigger problems on our hands. Once Gene finds out that we botched another delivery, he'll have our heads.

Lilia: But..we can't get fired now! We still don't have enough money to leave.

Jawo: Aw, don't worry about it. Everything will be just fine, I guarantee it.

Blue: For our sake, I hope you're right. Anyway, let's head back.

*The three leave Kenta City and returns to their place of work, Gene's Delivery Company. They tell Gene what came of their delivery, and as expected, he's none too happy about the results*

Gene: Okay, so let me get this straight. For some reason, the package containing the VERY fragile porcelain figurines drops, causing them to break. Yet knowing this, you still deliver it. And to an sickly old lady no less! I'm surprised she didn't just drop dead right there.

Jawo: *rubs head* Well, actually...she kinda did. Eheheh.

Gene: WHAT!?

Jawo: Ah! But it wasn't my fault!

Gene: Oh yeah? Then who's fault was it?

Blue: Yeah, Jawo. Who's?

Jawo: Shut up, Blue...

Lilia: (Think, Lilia...) Uhm..uhm...uhm....It was a big moose!

Gene: A...moose?

Lilia: Y-yeah! Suddenly out of nowhere, a big moose dashed out the woods, charged at Jawo and made him drop the package by accident! So you see, it really wasn't his fault.

Gene: You really expect me to believe that a moose, which don't even live in this region by the way, came out of the woods and attacked Jawo for no reason?

Lilia: Um..*looks around*...yes?

Gene: Fine. Have it your way. But it doesn't matter who's fault it is. Our company's policy is to ensure that packages are always successfully delivered in perfect condition, no matter the circumstances. By displaying just incompetency, you betray the policy, thus making the company look bad and eventually lose business. Do you understand?

Jawo: Yes, Gene...

Gene: Good. Now, I have another package for you to deliver.

Blue: Wait, does this mean we're not fired?

Gene: No, Blue. Not this time. But be warned, my patience is wearing thin. If you fail to make another successful delivery, I will have no choice but to let you all go. This company has no room for screw ups.

Lilia: Don't worry, Gene. We won't let you down!

Gene: Well I would hope not. Now then, about the package. I want you to take it to Aote City and deliver it to the book store. A new shipment of books just came in and they need them now. Luckily these won't shatter if Mr. Imaginary Moose of the woods makes Jawo drop them.

Lilia: *sweatdrop*

Gene: Aote City is just east of here, so get going. And I trust that there will be no untimely deaths this time.

Blue: You can count on us, Gene. Let's go, you two.

*Blue grabs the package and the group leaves the store*

Jawo: Alright, Blue. Hand it over.

Blue: Hand what over?

Jawo: Don't be daft. Give me the package.

Blue: Eh, I think I'll carry it this time.

Jawo: Are you trying to say you don't trust me?

Blue: All I'm saying is that I believe it would be safer with me holding onto it.

Jawo: So you ARE saying you don't trust me!

Blue: Well fine! That's exactly what I'm saying!

Jawo: I'll strangle you!

*Lilia steps between the two and stops the struggle*

Lilia: Stop it! What are you doing!?

Jawo: Well Blue started it.

Blue: Nuh uh!

Lilia: Who cares!? It's your bickering that caused us to mess up the last delivery, and I'm not going to let it happen again. Blue, carry the package and let's go.

Blue: Ha!

Jawo: *grumble*

*Meanwhile, at the IL Guild, ILS has been enjoying his time off from bounty hunting, until he is suddenly called back by his boss, otherwise known as the Official*

ILS: Yo, Boss. You said you needed me for something?

Official: Yes. You see, I've done some thinking and decided, I'm going to put you back on the Blue case.

ILS: Really? Alright!!

Official: Hmm, you seem awfully excited to be going after him again.

ILS: Huh? Oh well, uhm...he's such a tough catch and all, I just think that it's great that I get another opportunity to prove myself. (Yeah, that works)

Official: Well at least you're enthusiastic.

ILS: Yeah, of course! Eh, if that's all, I'll just be heading out now.

Official: Wait just a minute! You haven't met your new team yet.

ILS: Wha--

Official: After that atrocious failure, you really didn't think I'd let you go alone again, did you? To ensure that you successfully apprehend Blue this time, I've assigned a team to work under you.

ILS: Aw, come on, Boss. I--

Official: No buts. Your team is outside aboard the Dragonship, now get moving.

ILS: *sigh* Yes sir. (Oh man..this can't be good)

*ILS heads outside of the Guild. There he finds the Dragonship (a large landcruiser vehicle) and aboard it are a group of younger, lesser experienced bounty hunters. One in particular, a young boy with short purple hair and glasses, departs and approaches him*

Boy: *adjusts glasses* Ah, you must be the Great ILS. My name's Collin. It's a pleasure to meet you sir.

ILS: Uhm...yeah! Nice to meet you two. Sooo...mind giving me a rundown here?

Collin: Oh yes. Of course! Erm...well let's see, I was assigned as your second in command. You know, kinda like your right hand man. Me and my other trainee friends on the ship are here to help with whatever you need. Just give us an order and we'll do it!

ILS: Hey dude, is something the matter? You're kinda really red in the face.

Collin: Ah, it's nothing. It's...it's just so overwhelming to be meeting a hunter of your stature. In all my days, I never thought I'd work under the great A ranked hunter ILS.

ILS: Yeah, I am great aren't I?

Collin: Oh oh, most definitely! But we've spent enough time gawking here. We need to go get that Blue! I mean, if that's okay with you sir.

ILS: Yeah, right...

Collin: Okay! I'm taking us to Aote City to start our search. You just sit back and relax until we get there, alright? This is gonna be so cool!

*Collin runs back to the Dragonship*

ILS: Geez, why do I have to be stuck babysitting the dork and noob friends? And while they're hanging around, I don't know how I'm going to avoid facing off with Blue and the others. This...could be a BIG problem.

*Collin comes back*

Collin: Did you say something sir?

ILS: Er, nope. Nothing at all! Come on, let's get out of here.

Collin: Right!

*Blue, Lilia, and Jawo are venturing on the road to Aote City when they are confronted by three bandits*

Bandit1: Well look what we have here. Delivery chumps.

Bandit2: Let's say you hand over that box there.

Blue: There's nothing in here but a bunch of books. Unless you fancy some good literature, you're wasting your time.

Bandits3: Books? Grr, I don't believe you. Hand it over, that is if you don't wanna get hurt.

Blue: The obligatory bandit throwdown, huh? Jawo, hold the box. I'll handle them.

*Blue tosses the box to Jawo*

Jawo: Huh? Oh no you don't! You wanted you, you hold it! Urah!

*Jawo chucks the box at Blue's chest*

Blue: Wha-- Aaaah!!

*The force of the throw causes Blue to fall backwards*

Jawo: Leave this to me!

*Jawo grabs the hilt of his sword and runs towards the bandits*

Bandit1: You? What are you going to do?

Jawo: This! Eragh!!

*Jawo quickly draws his sword for its sheath and dashes right through the first bandit. He then sheathes his sword again*

Bandit1: Ha, are you blind? You didn't even touch me!

Jawo: Just a second.

Bandit1: What?

*At that moment, blood sprays from a devastating wound inflicted on the bandits abdomen*

Bandit1: Aaaarrggh!!! *thud*

Jawo: Who's next? You? Or maybe you? Heck, I'll take both of you at once!

Bandit2: You'd best not underestimate us, little man.

Bandit3: Or you'll find yourself on the recieving end of our axes! Let's get him!

*The two bandits charge Jawo at the same time*

Lilia: *gasp* Jawo, be careful!

Jawo: Don't worry about me, Lilia! I can take em!

*The second bandit approaches Jawo. He swipes with his axe, but Jawo avoids the attack by crouching under it. He then sweep kicks him, causing him to fall on his back. Jawo then finishes him off by plunging his sword into the bandits chest*

Bandit2: Aaaaaagggh!!

Bandit3: You'll pay for that!! Aah!

Lilia: Jawo, behind you!!

*Jawo outstretches his hand toward the bandit*

Jawo: Chaos...Control!!

*The bandit's movement is dramatically slowed*

Bandit3: W-what's happening to me!?

Jawo: Yah!!

*Jawo grips his sword with both hands and delivers an overhead slice clear across the bandit's body. Blood spews from his wound as he falls dead to the ground*

Jawo: *sheathes sword* Heh, that'll take care of them.

Lilia: Wow, Jawo. You're so cool!

Blue: Pfeh.

Lilia: What was that move you did? You know, the one that slowed down that bandit? That was amazing!

Jawo: Chaos Control. Using it, I can slow down the passage of time in a closed area, or warp instantaneously. It's a nifty trick, but I can't use it often.

Lilia: Awesome! Blue's magic can't do anything like that!

Blue: *steams* Oooooh....

*Blue storms off ahead of the others*

Lilia: Blue, where are you going!?

Blue: Aote City is just ahead. Hurry up or you'll be left behind.

Lilia: But...

Jawo: Don't fret over him, Lilia. He's just jealous because I'm cooler than him.

Lilia: That's not true! Blue, wait for me!

Jawo: Mmmmn. Blue...

*Lilia and Jawo follow after him*

*The group arrives just outside the Aote City Gates. There they find the Dragonship already docked there*

Blue: Hey, would you look at that thing?

Lilia: It's huge! What could it be?

Jawo: Ah, it's a Dragonship.

Blue: Dragonship? Is it like an airship or something?

Jawo: Nah, it can't fly. It's used primarily for land travel.

Blue: Land travel, huh? I wonder who it belongs to.

Jawo: Beats me. But it's not really any of our business.

Blue: You're right. Let's get going.

*The group enters Aote City. Meanwhile, ILS and his crew have already occupied the city ahead of them*

Collin: What are you orders, sir?

ILS: Uhm...*scratches head* Okay...I want all of the grunts to split up and search the city for any traces of Blue. Report back to me if you find anything.

Collin: And what will we do, sir?

ILS: Collin, you're with me. Let's go.

Collin: Yes sir!

*The grunts set off in search of Blue, while ILS and Collin head off to the local pub to relax*

Collin: Uhm, ILS sir, why are we here? Shouldn't we be helping the others?

ILS: We should, but we're not. Not right now, anyway. You and me are going to chill out and relax.

Collin: Are you sure that's--

ILS: Come on! It'll be fine! Now let's get some drinks.

Collin: Erm, whatever you say, sir.

*Meanwhile, Blue and his friends have completed their delivery of the package without fail*

Blue: Alright, we pulled it off without a hitch this time.

Jawo: I think this calls for a celebration! A round of drinks on Blue!

Lilia: I second that motion!

Blue: Uhm, I don't think so. Besides, we need to get back. You know how Gene gets when we're late.

Lilia: Aw, don't be such a wet blanket, Blue. Surely we have enough time to get some drinks before we go.

Jawo: And maybe even a bite to eat. Let's go, Lilia.

Lilia: Yeah!

*Jawo and Lilia walk off, leaving Blue behind*

Blue: Ugh, wait! Oh man, you guys.

*Blue catches up to the two as they head into the same pub where ILS and Collin are. The group settles at a table, looking through the menu for something to eat*

Lilia: Hmm, what are you going to get, Jawo?

Jawo: I was thinking....a juicy steak with a side of roasted potatoes. And of course, I'll wash it all down with my favorite Sprite.

Lilia: That sounds great, Jawo. How about you, Blue?

Blue: Eh, just a glass of Lemonade for me.

Lilia: Nothing to eat?

Blue: Nah. I'm not very hungr--hmm?

Jawo: What's up, Blue?

Blue: Those two guys at the table across from us. One of them looks familiar...

Lilia: The table across from us....Oh! That looks like ILS! I wonder what he's doing here?

Jawo: ILS, who's he?

Blue: He's an old friend of ours. Come on, let's pass by and say a word to him.

*The group walks up to ILS and Collin's table and greets him*

Blue: Hey! ILS, it's been a while!

Lilia: Hi there, ILS!

ILS: *gasp* Blue, Lilia!!! Uhm...oh...

Blue: What brings you out here, huh?

Lilia: And who's your friend?

ILS: Oh gee. Guys, this really isn't a good ti--

Collin: *spits out drink* Ah! There he is, sir! It's Blue! We've found him!

*Collin blows a whistle, alerting the other members of the team. They quickly storm into the pub, and within seconds, Blue and the group are surrounded*

Collin: Give up, Blue! You're surrounded!

Jawo: Hey, what's going on here?

Blue: ILS, what gives?

ILS: *sigh* (Guess I have no choice) Drop your weapons and surrender, Blue. For your own good.

Lilia: ILS, what are you doing?

Blue: Now I see. You intend to capture me this time, don't you?

ILS: I'm afraid so.

Jawo: *grabs hilt* Well we're not going down without a fight.

Blue: Jawo, don't.

Jawo: What, why!? We can take these guys, easy pickings!

Blue: I know, but we can't fight in here. Innocents will get hurt. We'll just do as he says for now. Everybody, drop your weapons.

Lilia: Alright.

Jawo: Hmph, fine.

*Jawo and Lilia drop their weapons to the ground*

Collin: Yay! We've got em! What now, sir?

ILS: Restrain them and take em to the Dragonship. We're heading back to the Guild.

Collin: Yes sir!

*The grunts use sturdy rope to tie the group's arms together. They then begin to escort them out of the pub*

Blue: ILS, you betrayed us.

ILS: I'm sorry, Blue. I was only following orders.

*After returning to the IL Guild with Blue and the others in tow, ILS takes them to a hunter to inform them of his success*

ILS: We're back.

Collin: And we've brought Blue!

Hunter: So you've finally done it, huh? But who are the other two?

ILS: His...accomplises. What should we do with them?

Hunter: Throw them all in the holding cell together. I'll inform the official and then he'll decide what to do with them.

ILS: Alright. Let's go, you.

*ILS escorts the three to a cell and locks them in. He then gives the key to a guard hunter and begins to make his way out*

Blue: ILS, wait!

ILS: What?

Blue: Why did you do this?

ILS: I already told you. I was only following orders. Nothing more, nothing less.

*ILS leaves the room*

Jawo: Damn him! I thought you said he was your friend!?

Lilia: He is.

Jawo: Then what the hell is his problem!?

Guard: Hey! Quiet down in there!

Jawo: Don't you tell me to quiet down!

Blue: Jawo, don't cause a scene.

Jawo: And why shouldn't I!? We make our first successful delivery in weeks, and then it all gets ruined because some **** decides he wants to betray his friends! How can you guys not be mad!?

Blue: Oh believe me, I want nothing more than to burn him to a crisp. But something inside of me is saying that he's still a friend.

Lilia: I feel the same way, Blue. I can't allow myself to believe that he'd just betray us without a good reason.

Jawo: Tsch, you two are so naive. I'm telling you now, if I ever get my hands on him, he's dead. It's as simple as that.

*The group hears footsteps approaching*

Blue: Someone's coming...

Hunter: Here they are, Official. ILS just returned with them not too long ago.

Official: Ah, I see. I knew sending him with a team would yield positive results. Now we've finally got Blue once and for all.

Hunter: But what of his friends, sir? Should we let them go?

Official: Hmm, well it's true that we only needed Blue. But perhaps we could profit from the other two as well. Run a check to see if there's anything worth turning them in for.

Hunter: Yes sir!

*The hunter runs off*

Official: Hahahaha! Blue, I've been waiting to get my hands on you.

Blue: Is that a fact?

Official: Yes. You are quite the important one, you are. Long and hard have we been searching for you.

*The hunter returns*

Hunter: Sir!

Official: What did your search tell you, hunter?

Hunter: The male, he's clean. There's nothing on him at all.

Official. Hmph fine. But what of the girl?

Hunter: Ah, the female. It says here that she's a member of a notorius pirate crew.

Lilia: Ah! Hey wait! T-that was a long time ago! I'm not with them anymore!

Official: Eh, no matter. We'll keep you anyway. I'm sure we can still acquire something from you. As for the other boy, let him out. He's free to go.

Guard: Yes.

*The guard hunter opens the cell and let's Jawo out*

Official: Give him back his belongings and send him on his way.

Hunter: Right away, sir.

Jawo: Well, good luck guys.

Blue: Hey, you're just going to leave us here?

Jawo: Well what do you want me to do? You go yourselves into this mess, you get yourselves out. I'm gone.

*Jawo leaves*

Lilia: Jawo! ...He left us...

Blue: ...

*The hunter gives Jawo his gear back*

Hunter: Here you are. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Jawo: Yeah, whatever.

*Jawo begins to leave the Guild, but instead of going out the door, he quickly ducks behind a pillar, unseen*

Jawo: *to himself* Now to rescue Blue and Lilia.

*Jawo crawls off through the hunter base, making sure to remain undetected*

Blue: Great. First ILS betrays us, then Jawo abandons us. Could this day get any worse?

Lilia: I know it looks bad, Blue. But we'll pull through somehow.

Blue: Well somebody's gotta be optimistic I guess.

Lilia: Oh, I know! Blue, use your magic to bust through the bars!

Blue: Hey! Good idea, Lilia! I can't believe I didn't think of that sooner!

Guard: I wouldn't do that if I were you.

Blue: Oh yeah? Why not?

Guard: Those bars are made of a special magic resistant material. It won't do a thing.

Blue: We'll see about that! Fireball!

*Blue casts a Fireball spell. Just as the guard said, the attack does nothing to damage the bars*

Blue: Damn, not even a scratch.

Guard: Hah, I told you. There's no way you're getting out of here.

Lilia: Blue, don't give up now!

Blue: It's no use, Lilia. Magic is all we have and this cell resists it. Face it, we're stuck.

Lilia: *sigh* But...

Guard: Hey! Who are you!?

*The guard leaves the area*

Blue: Huh?

Guard: You again, huh? Why are you back here? This area is for authorized personnel only.

Blue: Who's he talking to...?

Guard: W-what are you-- No! Aaaaauuuugggggh!!!!

Blue: What!?

Lilia: Aah! What's going on!?

*At that moment, Jawo arrives and unlocks the cell with the key he stole from the guard hunter*

Jawo: Hey guys, didja miss me?

Lilia: Jawo, you came back for us!

Blue: You...came back?

Jawo: What's with that look, Blue?

Blue: Nothing. I'm just surprised is all.

Jawo: Oh come now. You didn't really think I'd leave you guys here, did you?

Blue: Uhm well, yes actually.

Jawo: You need to learn to trust in me more. Well you can thank me later. We need to focus on getting out of here.

Blue: You're right.

Jawo: But first, here Lilia. I think these belong to you.

*Jawo hands Lilia her daggers and satchel*

Lilia: Alright! You're the best, Jawo!

Blue: Okay, let's get moving.

*The group begins to leave the cell room when they pass by the guard hunter's maimed and mutilated body*

Blue: Wow, you really did a number on that guy.

Lilia: Jawo, was that really necessary?

Jawo: Heheheh.

*The group manages to escape to the entrance of the Guild unseen*

Blue: Phew, talk about cutting it close.

Jawo: We made it, let's get out of here.

Lilia: Yeah.

??: Stop right there!!!

Blue: Huh?

*The group turns around to see ILS, accompanied by Collin and two other hunters*

Blue: ILS...

ILS: I can't let you escape, Blue.

Jawo: I've had just about all I can stand of this chump. I'm going to tear him apart!!

Blue: Wait, Jawo. ...ILS, why do you still stand in our way?

ILS: It's my job. No hard feelings, but I've got orders.

Lilia: What's wrong with you? This isn't the ILS we know. He'd never betray his friends for some silly job.

ILS: You just don't understand...

Blue: What? What don't we understand?

ILS: Just forget about it.

Collin: What are we doing standing around chatting, sir!? Let's get em! Yaaaah!!

*Collin makes a mad dash towards Jawo, wildy flailing his arms*

Collin: Take this!! ....Huh?

*Collin is brought to a halt when Jawo stops him by merely placing his index finger on his forehead*

Jawo: Kid, you're not worth the effort.

Collin: Oh, I'll teach you to call me a kid!

*Collin tries to punch Jawo, but his short arms can't reach him. Jawo then takes him by the shirt and lifts him into the air*

Collin: Egh, hey! Let me go!!

Jawo: Heh, if you say so. Have a seat, junior.

*Jawo releases Collin, causing him to forcefully fall to the floor*

Collin: Ouch! Ugh...they got me. I can't...go on...*cough*

Lilia: Jawo, why did you pick on that defenseless kid!?

Jawo: What are you talking about? I barely touched him! Besides, did you forget that he's trying to kill us or what?

ILS: (Collin, you dork) Alright, that's enough. Surrender, Blue. Or I'll have to take you down by force.

Blue: So this is what it's come to, huh? I never thought we'd end up fighting like this.

Lilia: ILS, we don't have to do this!

ILS: No, Lilia. We do. Now come on, no more talking. It's time to fight.

*ILS brandishes his dual swords*

Jawo: You took the words right out of my mouth.

*Jawo grabs the hilt of his sword*

Blue: ILS, last chance. We don't have to fight. I don't wanna have to hurt you.

ILS: You underestimate me, Blue. If anyone's going to get hurt, it's you. Now let's rumble!!

Blue: Jawo, Lilia. Go after the two hunters. I'll handle ILS.

Lilia: Got it.

Jawo: Wait, but I wanted him!

Blue: Just do it.

Jawo: *scoffs* Fine.

*As Blue instructed, Lilia and Jawo head for the two hunters by ILS' side, while Blue goes for ILS himself*

ILS: Coming at me alone, Blue? That's a bold move.

Blue: Just fight already.

ILS: You asked for it! Take this!

*ILS slashes upwards, but Blue quickly leans back, dodging the attack. He finds an opening and delivers an elbow to ILS' gut*

ILS: Guagh!

Blue: Don't tell me that's the best you can put out.

ILS: Heh, I was just about to say the same thing.

*ILS grabs Blue's arm*

Blue: Aah!

*ILS takes Blue by the arm and throws him to the ground. He then attempts to follow up with a stab, but Blue rolls out of the way just in time*

Blue: Not bad, ILS. But it's going to take more than that to beat me.

ILS: Likewise. Show me what you got.

*Blue and ILS continue to clash. Meanwhile, Jawo is tackling the grunt hunter. He slashes overhead, making short work of the hunter*

Hunter: Aaaaaggh!!

Jawo: Man, that was too easy. How are you holding up, Lilia? Need any help?

*Lilia is using her daggers as a shield to stave off the hunter's relentless attacks*

Lilia: No way! I can take him! Watch this!

*Lilia finds an opening and attacks. She cuts the hunter twice, easily dispatching him*

Hunter: Aaaaugggh!!

Jawo: Nice going, Lilia! Now let's take out the big gun!

Lilia: Right!

*Blue and ILS are at a standstill, both fairly weakened from their struggle*

Blue: *panting* For all your posturing...you ain't..all that..

ILS: *panting* You talk a big game, Blue. But can you back it up?

Blue: You've seen what I can do, ILS. You don't stand a chance.

ILS: While you, on the contrary, haven't seen the full extent of my abilities.

*Jawo and Lilia arrive to Blue's aid*

Lilia: Blue, are you okay!?

Jawo: Rest easy, we're here to help now.

Blue: No!

Lilia: What..?

Blue: He's mine. You two stay out of this.

Jawo: What are you talking about? We don't have time for you and your matters of personal pride. We need to deck this guy and get as far away from here as possible.

Blue: But...

Lilia: Yeah, Blue. Jawo's right. Even if you can take him yourself, we're not letting you fight alone.

ILS: Heheh, what's wrong? Can't take me down on your own, so you have to team up on me?

Jawo: And besides, I'm so not leaving without getting a piece of him myself.

ILS: Time to kick things up a notch. Mana Charge!!

*ILS focuses his mana, increasing its output and spreading it through every area of his body. The Charge causes pure mana to flow out of his body*

ILS: Let's go all out.

Jawo: I don't care how much you power up. You're still getting a face full of dirt.

*Jawo runs toward ILS with his sword drawn*

Jawo: I hope you're ready, because you just met your match! Hyah!!

*Jawo attacks, but ILS holds up his swords, defending against the attack*

Jawo: Why you...Aagh...

*Jawo applies more force, trying to break ILS' guard. ILS then pushes forward, knocking Jawo off balance. He takes that chance to slash Jawo's side, inflicting a terrible wound*

ILS: Hah!!

Jawo: *winces* Ergh...Damn it.

*Jawo falls to his knees and grasps his wound in pain*

ILS: Now we'll see who's killing who.

*ILS raises his sword and prepares to finish Jawo off*

Lilia: Aah! Hang on, Jawo!

*Lilia grabs a white bomb from her pocket and hurls it towards ILS*

ILS: What--

*The bomb explodes, releasing a mist that covers the area. Lilia then takes her chance to grab Jawo and pull him to safety*

Lilia: Are you okay, Jawo?

Jawo: Thanks. I owe you one...

*With Jawo safe from danger, the smoke clears, revealing ILS*

ILS: Hey, nice move, Lilia. But you can't run away from me forever.

Blue: We won't have to.

*Blue casts a spell*

Blue: Freeze Lancer!!

*A magic symbol appears in front of Blue. From it shoots several spears of solid ice. The shards of ice collide with ILS' mana aura, causing them to shatter on contact*

Blue: Damn!

ILS: *waggles finger* You're gonna have to do better than that, Blue. Let me show you a real attack.

*ILS plants his sword into the ground, causing a shockwave of energy to run along the ground towards Blue*

Blue: Wha--!

Jawo: Blue, out of the way!

*Jawo steps in front of Blue and blocks the shockwave with a swipe from his sword*

ILS: Not bad.

Blue: My magic...it can't penetrate his mana aura. What do we do?

Jawo: Don't fret, Blue. Take a closer look at that aura of his. Notice something different?

Blue: Hm...

*Blue inspects ILS'. He soon notice that it's decreasing in size*

Blue: It's...fading...

Jawo: You're a sharp one. He may've given himself a power boost, but it's all at the cost of his mana rapidly depleting.

Blue: So all we have to do is survive his attacks until his mana is fully depleted. And then...

Jawo: We go for the kill.

ILS: Are you two done talking over there? I'm getting pretty bored, you know.

Jawo: Blue, stay back. I'll hold him off. And once his mana is dry, you hit him with the finale. Got it?

Blue: Got it.

Jawo: Alright then.

*Jawo calls out to ILS*

Jawo: Oh, dont you worry about a thing. I'll keep you company!! Ragh!!

*Jawo runs toward ILS once again. This time with a different goal in mind*

ILS: Back again?

Jawo: Yeah, because you see, things are gonna be different this time.

ILS: Is that so?

Jawo: Oh yes. I have a few techniques of my own. Allow me to show you one.

*Jawo holds up his sword and grabs the hilt with both hands*

Jawo: Crystal Formation: Shatter!

*The blade of Jawo's sword shatters to hundreds of sharp pieces. They all hover around the air around ILS*

ILS: W-what...what IS this!?

Jawo: Attack!!

*The shards zero in on ILS and begin to pelt him relentlessly. He tries to hold up his arms in defense, but to no avail*

ILS: Ah! Aaaaggh!!

*After the attack completes, the shards return to the hilt and reform into the Crystal Sword*

ILS: *panting* Is that all you got?

Jawo: I thought you'd never ask.

*Jawo holds up his sword once again*

Jawo: Crystal Formation: Enlarge!

*The blade of Jawo's sword grows in size, becoming similar to that of a Zanbato*

Jawo: Huaah!!

*Jawo winds back and swings the sword with all his might. ILS jumps back and dodges, but only barely*

ILS: Gah! One hit from that thing and I'm a goner! I better end this quickly.

Jawo: You're not getting off that easy!

*Jawo slashes overhead, giving ILS no choice but to go on the defensive. He raises his swords and guards against the attack*

Jawo: Not so tough now, are you?

ILS: Ergh, this isn't over yet...

*At that moment, ILS' mana fully depletes and his mana aura disappears*

ILS: Agh! My mana! It's..it's...!

Jawo: Hah, gotcha. Blue, now!

Blue: Flame Wall!!!

*Jawo leaps out of the way as wall of intense flames surround ILS, burning his body*

ILS: No! Aaaaagggggh!!!

*The flame wall dissipates, leaving ILS greatly wounded and his clothes badly burned*

ILS: Damn...heheh. I..messed up...

*Beaten and devoid of energy, ILS collapses to the ground*

Blue: Sorry we had to do that, ILS. But you left us no choice.

Jawo: Speak for yourself, Blue. I'm not sorry in the least.

*Jawo walks up to ILS' body*

Jawo: I'm going to end your pathetic life, so that you'll never bother us again!

*Jawo raises his sword and prepares to deal the finishing blow to ILS*

ILS: Ngh...*closes eyes*

Lilia: Jawo, NO!!!

*Lilia steps in front of ILS with her arms spread out, as if to protect him*

Lilia: You can't kill him. You just can't! He's still our friend. *sniff*

Jawo: Lilia, I--

ILS: Li-Lilia...

Lilia: Please, Jawo! I'm begging you! Blue, say something!!

Blue: *sigh* Jawo...put your sword away. We're done here.

Jawo: ...Fine. *sheathes sword*

Lilia: Thank you...

Blue: Now let's get out of here before reinforcements arrive.

Lilia: Right.

*Blue and Lilia begin to walk out of the building*

Jawo: You don't know how lucky you are. But I warn you, if you ever come after us again, I'll take your life regardless of their pleas.

Blue: Jawo, come on!

Jawo: Yeah, coming.

*Jawo runs to catch up with Blue and Lilia*

ILS: ...

*The group flees the vicinity of the IL Guild, soon finding themselves in the middle of the countryside*

Blue: Well, this day was certainly eventful. Why is there even a bounty on my head anyway?

Lilia: How could you forget, Blue? Because you're the current ruler of Jahannam, people think you're a danger to society.

Blue: Man, just my luck. I was holding onto this thing as a memento of my change, but it's done nothing but cause me trouble.

*Blue takes out the Jahannam Jewel*

Jawo: Blue, you still have that old thing?

Lilia: How is that possible? I thought Mephiles and Iblis used that to turn back into Solaris...

Blue: They did. But he dropped it after we defeated him, and it's been with me ever since.

Jawo: Yeah well let's say we get back to Gene's, eh? I'm beat.

Blue: What are you talking about? We can't go back yet.

Jawo: Huh?

Lilia: Yeah, Blue's life is in danger. We can't turn a blind eye and pretend this didn't happen. We have to do something!

Jawo: Then what do you suggest we do? Kill every bounty hunter in the Kingdom? That's impossible.

Blue: No. We're going to find who's responsible for this bounty on my head, and force them to remove it.

Jawo: That's great and all, but what about the delivery place? We still have a job to do, you know.

Blue: I don't expect either of you to help me. You and Lilia go back to Gene's and continue your work. This is my problem, so I'll handle it.

Lilia: Blue, don't be silly. I said I was going to follow you wherever you go, and I meant it. I'm in, and I'm sure Jawo is too. Right?

Jawo: Mmn...

Lilia: Right Jawo...?

Jawo: Well, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing I let you two go off alone. Besides, if you plan on taking on the man, you'll need my help. So I'm in! I could never pass up the chance to bust some heads.

Lilia: See, Blue? We're your friends, and we'll stick by you all the way!

Blue: Thanks, guys.

Jawo: Okay, now that that's settled, just who is the law in this territory anyway?

Blue: King Baldovain, of course.

Lilia: So, we're heading back to Baldovain City?

Blue: That's the plan.

Jawo: In that case, our first stop should be Huran City. It's not too far from here.

Lilia: Huran City...hmm...that name sounds familiar...

Blue: Alright, let's do it.

*The group heads on their way to Huran City, and thus begins a new journey for Blue and his friends*

*The group arrives at Huran City, the first stop on the road to Baldovain City*

Blue: So here we are.

Lilia: Oh! Blue!

Blue: Huh?

Lilia: Look there! It's the Magic School!

Blue: Magic..School? *scratches head*

Lilia: Yeah yeah! Don't you remember? On our journey to find Mephiles, we stopped by here to try and look for a spell to reveal a shapeshifter. So that's why this place seemed so familiar...

Blue: Oh yeah! I wonder if whatsherface is still running things here.

Jawo: What are you two talking about?

Lilia: Jawo, you weren't with us. Back then it was just me, Blue and ILS.

Jawo: Oh. Him.

Blue: You really don't like ILS, do you?

Jawo: Well yeah, I'm not really fond of backstabbers, Blue. And you shouldn't be either.

Lilia: But, he's our friend...

Jawo: He's NOT your friend. Friends don't try to kill you to make a quick buck. In my eyes, he's just another enemy.

Lilia: But..but..!

Blue: Well, he does have a point, Lilia. But something just won't let me believe that.

Jawo: Tsch, I can't believe you guys.

Blue: Eh, no use pondering about it here. Let's get going. We still have a ways to go before we reach Baldovain City.

*As the group is passing by the Magic School, Lady Magalina bursts out of the school in a hurried frenzy. Not focused on her surroundings, she bumps into Blue and drops all of her papers*

Lady M.: Aaaaaaah!!

Blue: Whoa! Watch where you're going, pal!

Lady M.: Oh my, I'm so sorry! I just...I just...

Jawo: Hey, Blue. Didn't your mommy tell you to be nice to girls? Here, let me help you with those, miss.

*Jawo picks the papers off the ground and hands them to Magalina*

Lady M.: Thanks. And sorry about that little run in. You see, one of our teachers is out sick, so I've been having to pull double duty. I'm so exhausted...

Lilia: Huh? ...Lady Magalina, is that you!?

Lady M.: Excuse me? Have we met?

Lilia: You don't remember us? Me, Blue and another friend of ours came to your school a while back and asked for your help.

Blue: Yeah, and you kicked us out when ILS started acting up.

Lady M.: Oh. That slobbering mongrel. *shudders* I still have nightmares about it. I'm so glad you ditched him in favor of this strapping man here.

Jawo: Heheh, I aim to please.

Lady M.: But yeah, I didn't recongize you guys for a second there. It's only been 4 months, but you've grown so much.

Lilia: 4 months? But...it's been over a year since we last me--

Blue: *nudges Lilia* Lilia, remember that this place was frozen in time while we in Copy Earth. It may've been over a year for us, but to them, not a second has passed since from the time we defeated Solaris, to the time we defeated Kaixin and saved Earth.

Lilia: Oh yeah, you're right.

Lady M.: Uhm, did I miss something?

Jawo: Yeah, why don't you fill me in as well.

Blue: Er, it's a long story...

Lady M.: Speaking of long stories, I'm glad I bumped into you, Blue. You see, I kinda have a favor to ask.

Blue: A...favor?

Lady M.: Yeah, remember when I said that one of the teachers is out sick? Well this extra workload is really starting to take its toll on me and I was wondering if you could maybe...act as a substitute teacher for the class?

Blue: Uh, what!?

Lady M.: Please? It's only for tomorrow.

Blue: Well I appreciate the offer, but...I'm still a student myself, you know. I really don't think I'm ready to teach a class.

Jawo: Oh come on, Blue. You can do it!

Lilia: Yeah, I'm sure you'll make a great sub!

Blue: Erm...okay fine. I'll do it...

Lady M.: Thank you, Blue! You're such a sweetheart!

Blue: Just what exactly do I have to do anyway?

Lady M.: Oh that's easy. Here are the lesson plans for tomorrow.

*Magalina hands Blue a portfolio full of papers*

Blue: THIS is tomorrow's lesson plan!?!?

Lady M.: Yup! Just make sure to look over it and you'll be all set! Oh, would you look at the time? Gotta run, bye!

*Magalina runs off*

Blue: Ugh, maybe this wasn't such a good idea...

Lilia: Aw, don't say that, Blue! It could be fun!

Jawo: Maybe me and Lilia could even attend the class. It's been such a long time since I've been to grade school. I can't wait!

Blue: Yeah well don't get your hopes up. Anyway, it's getting late, so let's head to the inn for tonight.

*The group heads to Huran Inn and proceeds to purchase a room to get some rest. Later that night, Blue is still wide awake, trying to memorize the lesson plan for tomorrow*

Blue: Next, we study the basics of controlling elements, and then we...mhm..yup...

*Lilia awakens*

Lilia: Hmm? Blue, what are you still doing up? It's like, 2 in the morning.

Blue: I know, but I'm looking through this ridiculous lesson plan. Can you believe I have to have this all memorized and ready to go by morning?

Lilia: But Blue, you need your rest. You can't properly teach the class if you haven't gotten enough sleep.

Blue: Fine, I'll go to sleep in a little while. I just need to look over this a little more.

Lilia: Okay! And speaking of people being awake, where's Jawo? He's not in his bed.

Blue: Oh, I saw him heading out to the terrace not too long ago. He's likely still there. Why don't you go keep him company, huh?

Lilia: Yeah, I think I'll do that.

*Lilia walks onto the terrace to find Jawo, leaning over the railing and pondering the starry sky*

Lilia: Hey.

Jawo: Uh? Oh, Lilia.

Lilia: What are you thinking about?

Jawo: Eh, nothing really. I just wanted some fresh air. What are you doing up so late anyhow?

Lilia: I overheard Blue studying those lesson plans in there. *sigh* He's such a busy body. I know he's just trying to make everyone happy, but I worry about him.

Jawo: You must really care for him, huh? I mean, really really care for him.

Lilia: Wha-? Oh no! It's not like that at all! I mean, I do, but..no, it's not what you're thinking!

Jawo: Okay okay! You don't have to get all defensive about it. Sheesh.

Lilia: Hey Jawo, I was wondering...

Jawo: Yeah?

Lilia: Back at the bounty hunter base, why did you come back and save us?

Jawo: What kind of question is that?

Lilia: Well, me and Blue always got the vibe that you didn't like us very much. I mean, you did start travelling with us for the sole purpose of fighting him afterall.

Jawo: Oh, that. Heh, to be honest, I've forgotten all about it. And about me not liking you guys, that's not true at all. You two are my friends.

Lilia: Friends? That includes Blue as well?

Jawo: Yeah, of course. I mean, yeah, he gets on my nerves at times, but I care for the guy, you know.

Lilia: Hahah, wow. I never knew. The way you two always argue and bicker, I had figured you wanted to tear him apart.

Jawo: Just don't tell Blue what I said about him.

Lilia: What!? Why!?

Jawo: Because, if he found out how I really felt, he'd never let me live it down.

Lilia: Oh come on, Blue's not like that. I'm sure he feels the same way about you.

Jawo: You really think so?

Lilia: Think so? I know so! I've been with Blue for a good while; I can tell when he does and doesn't like someone. And I can tell, deep down, that he really likes you too. And like you, he doesn't want to show it either. You two are a lot alike, in that way.

Jawo: Heh, I guess we are. Just know something, Lilia...

Lilia: Huh?

Jawo: I'll never be like that ILZ, or whatshisface.

Lilia: ILS.

Jawo: Yeah, that. I'm gonna stick by the two of you to the very end. Any hardship we endure, we endure together.

*Lilia wraps her arms around Jawo and hugs him tight*

Jawo: Whoa!

Lilia: Heehee! You're such a great guy, Jawo.

Jawo: Hey, won't Blue get mad if he sees us like this?

Lilia: Blue, mad? Nah, he's not the jealous type.

Jawo: It's getting late. Well...later than it already is. Let's say we get some shuteye before morning sneaks up on us.

Lilia: Right.

*Meanwhile, just outside the inn, two bounty hunters wade in the darkness*

Hunter1: Heheh, this is place. Finding Blue was a snap.

Hunter2: Now all we have to do is nix him and take the bounty for ourselves.

Hunter1: Let's go.

*The two hunters dash and leap onto the roof of the inn*


Lilia: Hey...did you hear that? It sounded like footsteps.

Jawo: Smells like trouble. You got your gear, Lilia?

Lilia: Yeah, let's do it.

Jawo: Okay, come on!

*Jawo and Lilia head off in pursuit of the bounty hunters*

*Jawo and Lilia arrive on the roof and confronts the bounty hunters*

Jawo: Hey!

Lilia: Stop right there!

Hunter1: Huh?

Hunter2: Who are these losers?

Lilia: We're friends of Blue.

Jawo: And we're most definitely not losers.

Hunter1: Heh, Blue's bodyguards, eh? We weren't expecting this, but no matter.

Hunter2: We'll just take you out first!

*The second hunter readies an arrow and fires it at Lilia. She quickly takes out her daggers and blocks the oncoming arrow*

Lilia: Nice try!

*Lilia dashes forward and attacks, but the hunter raises his bow in defense and guards against the attack*

Hunter2: Ergh...

Hunter1: Now you're mine! Yaah!!

*The first hunter comes up from behind and attempts to slash Lilia while she's distracted. But Jawo quickly steps in and guards the blow with his sword*

Hunter1: What?

Jawo: Your fight's with me, buddy.

*Jawo pushes forward and knocks the hunter off balance. He then takes a swing, but the hunter jumps back and avoids the blow. Meanwhile, the second hunter manages to escape the struggle*

Hunter2: You're tougher than you look, girl. This is gonna be fun.

*The second hunter takes out 3 arrows and fires them all at once, but even still, Lilia manages to knock them all away*

Lilia: Come on! Can't you do better than that?

Hunter2: Why you little... Take this!!

*The hunter takes arrow after arrow and continuously fires them at Lilia*

Lilia: Whu oh!

*Lilia runs and dodges the arrows while advancing on the hunter. Once in reach, she rams him with a powerful shoulder charge*

Lilia: Take that!

Hunter2: Aaaarrrgggh!!

*The force of the tackles sends the hunter flying over the roof and plummeting to his doom*

Hunter2: Nooooooooo!!! *thud*

Lilia: Heheh, never underestimate me! *pumps fist*

*Meanwhile, Jawo and the first hunter are still facing off*

Jawo: Oops. Looks like hunter fell down and broke more than just his crown.

Hunter1: Hah, you're a regular comedian, aren't you? It doesn't matter. It just means that I'll have all the bounty money for myself once I kill you all.

Jawo: You wish, chump. Playtime is over. It's time I finished you off.

*Jawo holds up his sword in preparation for another technique*

Jawo: Crystal Formation: Crystal Shot!

*The blade of Jawo's sword begins to rapidly expand and grow, causing even more crystal formations to protrude from the blade*

Hunter1: Wh-what!?

Jawo: Ready for this? Fire!!!

*Jawo's sword explodes, shooting larges hunks of crystal towards the hunter*

Hunter1: Nooo! Stay away!!

Jawo: Too late to plead for your life now.

*One after another, the hunks of crystal pelt and beat on the hunter, leaving him a bloody broken mess*

Hunter1: Urgh...

Jawo: Hold on. We're not done yet. Here's a parting gift for you.

*The last hunk of crystal zooms in and bashes the hunter head on, sending flying off the roof to his death. With the attack finished, Jawo's sword reforms and he puts it away in its sheath*

Jawo: *dusts off hands* That was way too easy.

Lilia: Jawo, you did it!

Jawo: And so did you, Lilia! High five!

*The two share a congratulatory high five*

Jawo/Lilia: Yeah!!!

*Meanwhile, indoors*

Blue: Hey, who's making all that racket!?

*Blue throws a book at the ceiling*

Blue: Keep it down up there!! Some of us are trying to study here!

Jawo: Grr, Blue. Why you...

Lilia: Now now, Jawo. Remember what we talked about...

Jawo: Hmph, fine.

Lilia: Good. Now let's get to bed. At this rate, we'll never get any sleep.

*Jawo and Lilia descend from the roof and head back indoors*
