The battle was going well- though the new girl did get killed by a random Axe man that appeared out of nowhere but whatever, nobody knew her anyway- and half of Garea's remaining army had been wiped out. Well, to call it an army would be generous; it was more of a small militia than an army. On one side Demiri, Tealgra, Euriki, Vivienne, Nimbus and Tenaki were taking out the mages, and Sokara, Dakota, Robion, Laurel, Corasta and Rubio were mopping up the Hero's and Drakowing Riders on the other.
"Time to tip the scales!" Marco roared as he fired a bolt of Tempest at a Gudorian Warrior, critically wounding him. With a battle cry, his wife finished the man off, and Rubio took this time to scan the battle field.
He looked over just in time to see Tealgra blast a man to bits, making him feel somewhat ill. With a queasy grimace he switched his gaze to Nimbus, who was being healed by Euriki while Vivienne and Tenaki held the enemy off.
Next he saw Robion clashing with a Hero, who jumped back to avoid a slash and got a blast of Arcane for his effort. Satisfied that the battle was going well, he tried to spot his friend and leader, Sokara. When he finally caught sight of him, the jet black haired dracoknight/tactician paled. "Oh damn it!"
Sokara had just been electrocuted by Garea's Keris Dagger; the Mad King having charged straight for the brown haired prince. As he watched Sokara fall to the ground, he felt anger well up within him. His face trembled and his lips twisted into a yell.
"SOKARAAAA!" His enraged scream caught the attention of many. Ignoring others reaction he glared at Sokara's corpse, gritting his hair in frustration.
Jumping from his horse he ran at the body and kicked it in the head. "DAMN IT TO THE ROYAL NAGAS, SOKARA! REALLY, AGAIN?! I CAN'T LEAVE YOU ALONE FOR FIVE FUCKING MINUTES WITHOUT YOU DYING! GRAAARGH! YOU FUCKING SUCK DUDE!"
As he continued to scream at the body, everyone else began to fade away, but Rubio remained, yelling at his friend's corpse. "WHY DO YOU ALWAYS DIE?! I MEAN GODS! I CAN'T TRAIN YOU BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS DIE! OH LOOK, A SOLDIER, I'M SURE SOKARA CAN SORT IT, SON OF A BITCH! HE DIED! WHAT A FUCKING SURPRISE! WHAT, YOU TOO WEAK FOR HARD MODE YOU DASTARD?! HOW COULD I EVER DREAM OF DOING LUNATIC IF YOU ALWAYS FUCKING DIE ON HARD?!"
With one last kick- this time at the ground- he sat down and crossed his arms. "Now I've got to do all that again, I mean god damn it! This time, you're staying in the fucking back. The only reason you're on the squad is because it's mandatory! Oh well, maybe I can save that Kelli chick this time."
Soon, Sokara's body and Marco vanished. The tactician/ Dark Knight opened his eyes and turned to see Sokara, in the middle of his talk with Garea. Once he was finished the man turned back to Rubio.
"Right then, let's do it!" Marco glared at him, taking him aback.
"Fine, but this time you're staying here!"
"What?" The prince was confused by his friend's nonsensical wording.
"Fuck you that's what." He turned around and saw an approaching Kelli. "Oi, pinky!"
The girl squeaked as he grabbed her by the shoulder and shoved her into Sokara's chest. "Stay with him, and try not to get either of yourselves killed this time."
Marco turned around and mounted his horse, leaving two very confused people behind him.
This time, Rubio and Corasta charged straight for Garea, decimating everyone in their path as the badass couple they were, with the others mopping up the remnants, while Sokara and Kelli did nothing.
They did talk a lot though, and the next time Rubio saw his friend he was engaged. If the tactician thought it odd, then he didn't comment (though truthfully he was a bit annoyed, knowing that Eleanore was going to suck now).
I hate Sokara in Hard mode. He always fucking dies. Anyway, recognise the reference in this one shot? If you do then...good one I guess...
