“AQUA VORTEX!” Butterfli3 called loudly as he shot between anarchy’s legs, grabbing you in a bear hug as he barrelled you backwards- caging you with his body as you two rolled.
Due to the speed of his tackle you rolled a few times but he made sure to take the brunt of the hits everytime you rolled.
As he summersaulted heavily, his back hit the opposite cave wall with a hard smack and you heard him grunt as the wind was knocked out of him.
“Butterfli3!” you gasped, “are you ok??”
“O/N,” he rasped as he opened an eye to look at you, still holding you in his arms, “I’m sorry… I was late…”
“No, no I’m fine!” you reassured him, placing your hands on his chest, your worried eyes searching his dim, half lidded ones.
He shook his head with a weak cough. “No… ” he whispered, pointing to your arm, “you’re injured.”
You looked down and saw that your arm, from shoulder to elbow, was charred, your health bar was quite low too.
“Oh! Wait… is my invisibility cloak gone?” you asked, looking down and seeing that your form wasn’t faded anymore.
Butterfli3 nodded as he sat up off the cave wall and hugged you to him.
“I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.”
“Butterfli3, it’s ok,” you chuckled softly, “I’m still ok.”
“No, but I promised nothing would happen to you and now you’re injured,” he whispered into your neck as he buried his head into you.
“Baby,” you coo’d gently as you cradled his head with one arm and ran your fingers through his hair, “you still saved me! If you hadn’t jumped in I would have been a goner, don’t be so harsh on yourself.”
He hugged you and looked up over your shoulder to Anarchy.
The dragon was currently being distracted by Kirito and Asuna who were taking turns switching in and out to take him down.
“I’m going to make him pay,” Butterfli3 suddenly said darkly as he pulled himself and you up to standing, “Migata!” he called weakly to his best friend, “we need some healing, please.”
Migata had been spending his time healing SSG69, her fox, and occasionally Kirito and Asuna but the last two didn’t seem to need a lot of help.
“Coming!” he called to Butterfli3 as SSG69 took yet another hit from the raptor she was fighting, “gimme a second,” he added as he healed her yet again, “hey SSG69, I’m coming back, ok? Don’t take any more damage for a bit!”
“I’Il try!” she yelled back as her fox jumped in front of her and barred another attack from the raptor.
Migata turned and ran towards where you and Butterfli3 were standing.
“Woah! What happened to you, Butterfli3?! You look like you took a massive beating!” he said as he started to heal his friend.
“Not me, not me!” Butterfli3 cried, pushing Migata’s potions away, “don’t heal me! heal O/N, she needs it the most.”
“No! I’m fine,” you replied emphatically, “heal Butterfli3. He’s the one who is going to be going into a heated battle in a bit!”
Migata just gave you both a pathetic look. “Listen, I know you two are looking out for each other but I need to start on someone! Who’s it going to be?”
“Guys, I need you to co-oper—.”
“Migataaaaa!” SSG69’s shrill cry broke through his sentence and he spun around just in time to see two raptors lunge at her from both sides.
Withouta second thought he bolted back towards her and did a flying kick at one raptor, using it as a springboard to then launch at the second one, throwing a round house kick at it but it glitched right as he hit it, causing him to land inside it while it’s form went into a static type mode.
“Migata! Get out!” SSG69 screamed as Migata stood inside the glitching raptor, confused.
As he stood there, it suddenly stopped glitching and burst into crystals, evaporating immediately.
“Wow! How did you do that?!” SSG69 called.
“POWERRRR!” Migata replied, pulling his signature move that he would do after he had defeated somebody in a fight.
“Did it hurt you though? Are you ok?” SSG69 asked.
“It drained a little HP but not much,” Migata replied with a smile.
“Do it again!! You’re the only one that’s been able defeat one yet!” SSG69 encouraged.
Spurred on by her enthusiasm, he tackled the one raptor that he had previous sent sprawling with a flying kick, and hung on around its neck while it thrashed and roared wildly- trying to dislodge him.
He waited till it glitched, then forced his body inside the glitching section and waited. The raptor bugged out a bit then exploded in crystallized defeat.
“Yeah!! Take that, you spazzing furby ass bitch!” SSG69 hollered, high fiving Migata as he emerged from the crystals.
“Looks like they’re having fun?” you said, watching SSG69 and Migata take on the raptors, as your limping Butterfli3 half carried you away from both of the main fighting fronts.
“Yeah,” he panted.
“Are you sure you’re ok?” you asked him again as he sat you down on the ground, “your health bar took a massive hit when you saved me.”
“I got hit with a bit of fire just before the aqua vortex activated,” he said weakly, as he knelt down in front of you.
“Here,” you said, “let me heal you as best I can.”
You pulled out health potion after health potion and healing potion after healing potion from your storage and gave them to him to drink but he would only drink half, then hold the bottle to your lips so you could have the rest- much to your dismay.
“You need these more than me!” you said for the 5th time as he held the bottle to your lips.
“Shhh,” he said softly, “drink, sweetheart, I need you here with me. I can’t lose you.”
“Baby,” you whined, “I’m not going anywhere.”
“Yo! So you two gonna sit there and continue your own little romance scene or you gonna fight?” SSG69 asked, suddenly appearing beside you both.
You jumped in surprise. “Aren’t you fighting the…”
“Raptors? Yeah babes, they’re all gone now thanks to Migata.” She beamed, pointing to the smiling mage beside her.
“It’s a wrap…tor…” Migata said with a wink and finger guns.
You wanted to groan out loud at his poor pun but SSG69 burst out laughing.
“Y-you’re laughing?” Migata gasped excitedly.
“You’re hilarious, boo.” SSG69 replied, slapping him on the back.
“Wait, so you defeated them all?!” you asked in shock, breaking Migata out of his disbelieving state, “that didn’t take long!”
“Well once I got used to phasing inside them each one got easier to beat,” Migata replied proudly.
“Wow, good job,” you said with a smile, “now we just have to beat this cheating Oompa Loompa ass looking bitch here,” you said, jerking your head towards where Anarchy was being detained by Kirito and Asuna, “then we’ll be sweet.”
“Couldn’t have said it better myself,” SSG69 said with a very satisfied grin on her face.
“And that’s where I come in,” Butterfli3 said lowly, raising himself to standing, “he intended to kill my girl. He has raised the gates of hell.”
“Ohhhh, lawd he comin’ for yo ass, Anarchy,” SSG69 said with a devious chuckle.
