Krista became a snack for that fire-breathing snake which I really hated.
I always liked snakes but I guess it's different from up-close.
I charged at the snake ready to cut the snake in half and free Krista from its stomach but it wasn't easy getting close.
With a swing of its tail I got pushed down on the floor and Maria with her tiger on her side charged along with Naomi.
"No It's mine!"
The started pushing each other's shoulder and didn't see the next tail swing which pushed them down as well.
Rose equipped her Speed Crysis and moved behind the snake faster than the eye could follow.
She was about to attack when the Snake got covered in flames that almost burned her.
The monster breathed fire all around it making it hard to reach.
After that it injected a purple substance that was coming towards me.
I thought I was a goner but Clarisse pushed me out of the way.
"Don't let your guard down or it's over!" She yelled. "Y,Yutu please!"
The guy who was behind during the battle turned into an actual dragon and then glided towards the huge snake.
Yutu's dragon form wasn't as big as an actual dragon. He was just a little bigger than the snake which was pretty tall when it had it's body up.
Apparently being half dragon isn't as powerful as the real thing.
Still Yutu was doing a great job fighting the snake.
The fight turned into a Who-will-bite-the-o-other'sneck competition and in the end the snake won!
"Y!Yutu" Clarisse screamed and charged to help her friend.
I followed her not to help Yutu but to help Krista who was still trapped inside the snake.
Meanwhile, Maria and Naomi were arguing again and didn't pay any attention to the fight.
"Over here you freak!" I threw a rock at the snake to switch its attention to me instead of biting Y.Yutu
The snake let go of the dragon's neck and went after me with mouth open wide.
I jumped out of the way and then climbed on the snake's body and made it to its head but before I could stab it, flames covered its scales and I back-flipped in order to prevent myself from getting burned.
How could I save Krista when I couldn't get close?
I then noticed Krista's sword and picked it up.
I then threw it with all my force towards the snake's mouth which swallowed the sword whole.
After that I joined Clarrise who was trying to heal Yutu's wounds.
Apparently he never finished his dragon training so he wasn't as skilled.
"How do we beat the snake?" Clarrise asked.
"Any minute now." I grinned.
The snake was about to attack again but a sword penetrated its scales from the inside.
In a swift circle slice Krista cut the snake's body in half from within it.
The monster's upper half fell down lifeless with its mouth still open making it look really creepy.
"Well, good thing that is over." Krista said and walked towards us while Maria and Naomi were pulling each other's hair. Tiegra was only watching.
"Is he going to be okay?" I asked Clarisse.
"I hope so. His wounds aren't too bad but the poison might kill him." She answered.
"Don't worry, half-dragons are immune to poison and heal faster than regular people." Krista explained. "Still, that last fight was a close call. We have to be carefull."
"And to think that we are still on the 9th floor." I noticed.
The inside of the place was huge and a real maze. What we had to do was find the staircase that led to the lower floor only to find another maze and from there the process has to be repeated until we reach the bottom floor.
"We still have a long ways to go huh?" Clarisse muttered.
"And we have to worry about those two, otherwise they will kill each other." Krista pointed at Maria and Naomi who were still angry. At least they had stopped arguying and had their backs turned against each other, refusing to look or talk.
"Let's rest for a bit before contuing. After all, Yutu is in bad shape right now." Rose said out of nowhere. She was in a bad mood because she didn't get to do much in the fight.
In actuality nobody was able to do much.
Am I just too weak?
