''Venus is passing by.''
Jace: ''Don't bring your knife to a gun fight", that's what they say, huh.... Not like I could help it. he says and points his gunblade at Lios while panting.
Lios: Huh... Not bad kid... he sighs, but I suppose the fun ends here.
Lios summons several knives only to attack Aya, but instead of hitting her, Aya's clone made out of power energy from the Fudara Talisman was hit, making it vanish in waves of energy.
Luto: Tch... That clone might've been powerful, but it sure wasn't invincible...
Lios: For attempting to steal the power of the ancestors without my permission, and of course, failing miserably at it... I must eliminate you three.
Jace: You will try. says Jace and takes a fighting pose.
Luto: Don't underestimate him or you--
Jace: I don't need no advice on this, Luto. I got this. he interrupts... Alright then... This is my fight then.
Lios smirks and charges with an incredible speed at Jace, which wasn't even focused. Once Lios hits, a short flash is emitted, only to reveal Aya blocking the hit. She disarms Lios and shoots him with powerful red energy balls, making him fly for a considerable space.
Aya: No Jace.... This is our fight!
Luto: That's right Jace... says Luto and draws her sword; as she does that, a godly figure appears above her with half a body, apparently wielding another blade similar to Luto's.
Jace: Woah... What's that?
Luto:...Ezanaro. Remember I told you long ago about him. The God that dwells this sword.
Jace: I see... So that's him, huh.... Alright, good to have you aboard!
Aya: Here he comes again..!
Lios's armor was pretty much ruined from Aya's hits, he would be an easy target if he would just charge, everyone though. However he wasn't going to go down that easily; he looks in the air and another green bright flash is emitted. When everyone's vision was restored, they were surrounded by Lios copies.
Jace: Now that's a lot of them.... What now?
Luto: I should be able to dispell this... Just hold him occupied while I get to it.
Jace: Roger that..
Jace and Aya jump in the air, most of the clones follow them. From the air, Jace shoots powerful gunblade rounds that destroy the clones remaining on earth, the ones after Luto. Aya is carrying Jace, as he fires lighting rounds in the clones, however, in the air, these clones seem to be able to avoid his shots. In the meantime, on the ground Luto casts a purple circle that spins around aimlessly; Aya kept looking at that, with no idea what that is. Jace jumped off Aya's arms and slashed off one of the clones with great force, dealing a fatal blow, making the clone vanish. Aya, surprised catches Jace from mid-air.
Aya: Jesus Jace, what are you thinking?!
Jace: I didn't had any other idea, alright?!. And can't you like catch me or something? This tactic seems to be working.
Aya: Fine. Let's do it your way then..
The move keeps repeating, Jace flies off Aya's grip and slashes off other clones, however their number seems to not end. Finally Luto finishes her incantation in front of the circle. She pulls her sword out again and lunges at the circle. The sky goes purple and a whole bunch of energy balls fall from the sky, attacking the other Lios clones and killing them permanently.
Without realizing it, Lios was already behind Luto. She quickly turns and blocks Lios's attack, but with the other hand Lios stabbed Luto in the side of the stomach.
Luto: Glch..... D-Damn...
Lios: Goodnight, summon.
He swings his blade once again, aiming for her head, however Aya shoots at Lios again , making him fly. The laser she shot, however penetrated his chest this time, trough his remaining armor.
Lios falls to his knees as Aya comes before him. Jace picks up Luto and backs off.
Luto: Aya...! No!
Before she could stop her, Aya shoots off Lios's head. The body of the guardian immediately vanishes as she shoots. Luto looks amazed for a second, but then screams at Aya.
Luto: Hey! Why the hell did you do that?! Now we won't get th-- slowly Luto's eyes close and she apparently faints.
Jace: Luto! Luto!! he screams desperately, however with no response. They both deactivate their fighting suits, and they head for Jace's house. Nothing is left behind them but the degradated battlefield, that was once a small part of their neighborhood.
