Claudius' eyes widened as the Grumpig fused his energy to form a portal. "That's forbidden!!!"
He reached out for the Mime Jr., trying to grasp his hand quickly. Claudius clenched on nothing except air as a bright light filled the room. Soon everything exploded and he felt the floor give away beneath him.
Claudius was wrapped in complete darkness as he floated through nothingness. This cannot be the end.....not by the hands of that magical monstrosity.
The Reactor Core violently exploded as another light flew from its insides. The darkness around Claudius quickly lightened to a shade of gray as he felt some warmth around his body. Can this be?...........Could this be the power of one of the Great Books?
He opened his eyes to see the young Dewott holding onto his body. Then Claudius felt a slight weight in his arms. He looked down to see a book that shared light and darkness on its cover with a gold circle dividing them. "........the Book of Destiny......it found me!" He looked above himself as he saw the wreckage of the Reactor falling towards the group.
The Book of Destiny floated up from Claudius. "Protect!" A sphere of light wrapped itself around the group as the Reactor fell on top of them, sending the sphere down to the lowest level.
Trevor nodded as he grasped the Zoroark's hand. He felt Axel fling Trevor through the air.
His fists were set ablaze as he felt the familiar sensation of magic course through his body. "Ragnorak Fist! Full speed impact!" The speed of Trevor's body caused the magic to spread farther down his arms, turning him into a living arrow.
Trevor sliced through the blast, wincing slightly as the attack did affect his body. He was closing in on the Charmander's Salamence. ((Crunchy can decide what happens next, don't want to cause something not intended
Peony walked around the rooms of the Inn, just checking in on the other travellers. She walked out onto the front porch, "How are you feeling?" The Slowking turned towards her. "I am well, thanks to you. You have a strong gift in the healing arts madam."
Peony blushed softly, "Well I am a doctor so I was only doing what I'm supposed to."
Claudius nodded at her, "Still I owe you a great debt for saving my comrades and myself." Peony smiled, "Well your friend Adrienne helped out just as much." Claudius sighed and gazed upwards, "I owe her nothing
. Though I do owe her some gloating. If you'll excuse me."
Peony stood looking abashed by the Slowking's comment. She stammered for a moment as he walked inside.
Claudius walked into the room where Adrienne was sitting next to a knight. "Oh Adrienne." Claudius had a large grin on his face as he came closer into Adrienne's personal space. "Look what I obtained." He quickly grabbed the Book of Destiny and shoved it in her face.
"Seems there is only one more book I need until my collection is complete."
