Desiring to play around with his new toys, Dean had some rules in mind.
He couldn't use his weapon as the sheer quality would be able to break Joe's armor given enough time and the other three would die without a doubt.
They couldn't go too far away from this area as Leonard could get in trouble so only within a reasonable distance would Dean allow them to fight.
There were three main goals that Dean had currently thought out.
One of them was to grab the attention of Christian. Even if it means wreaking havoc to every student and gathering a notorious name, the only thing that would matter was whether Christian understood that he's back.
The other goals was to train his Magic and Battle Intent.
Using Battle Intent like a poison was quite inefficient against hunting beasts but against humans they had an interesting effect.
The deadly innate power Battle Intent held would cause a lot of trouble but due to not using it a lot, Dean had started to lose the understanding on how to use it.
A main thing Dean used Battle Intent for was just reinforcing his trikes. He had rarely tried using Battle Intent for anything else so this was a chance for experimentation.
On the other hand Magic was still foreign to Dean as he had difficulties adjusting to its strange usage. Although surprisingly effective against Kellie, Dean wasn't sure about the other group members.
A phrase that Leonard always emphasized was that
"Creativity is key"
Whatever you can create will be another tool in your arsenal.
Katrina had taken Kellie to her side already and gave her a small potion to help her recover some train of thought while throwing a bottle of water on her face.
Kellie's eyes gleamed with fear as the Silent Cage slowly corrupted her 5 senses into nothingness. The empty feeling was overwhelmingly uncomfortable and the fact that she immediately felt weak despite the short time frame was terrifying.
Joe saw the situation turning awry and positioned himself in front of the group however not too close against Dean.
Although he was covered like a small tank, he was not a punching bag for Dean to abuse.
Lirgo took himself next to Kellie to protect her and kept an eye on Dean who casually walked forward.
Katrina was going to flank Dean if he tried attacking anyone when his back would be exposed to her blade.
Dean took the first move as he shot multiple Dark Balls towards his enemies.
The barrage was quite weak in general but Joe had a tough time looking for any Dark Balls that would curve around and harm Lirgo.
Lirgo was facing a pandemic on deciding whether to use a barrier to block these spells but if Dean did nothing then he wasted Mana for no reason.
Deciding that Kellie's life was important, Lirgo ultimately used a thin layer of Mana to block any shots and it paid off as he could hear the bouncing and repelling of the Spell against Spell.
Wanting to smirk at Dean to prove his confidence he realized there was now a barrage of rocks and dirt flying towards him.
'Can he use Earth Magic"
It was quite rare to have two areas of magic mastered within a single branch however it was still possible.
Weary of the sudden talent that Dean had proved himself to own, Lirgo took a better look at their situation.
The bombardment of rocks weren't uniformed and there was an unusual plot of land missing when he moved to the left.
Realizing Dean's trickery, Lirgo yelled to Joe in order to warn him
"Joe! Watch out"
Unfortunately it was too late as Dean swept his leg causing him to slip and fall from his steady position that defended the majority of Lirgo and Kellie's troubles.
Falling from grace, Joe wasn't able to move due to his durable armor and shield that added to his large stature
Slowly moving into Dean's embrace, Joe was entrapped in a snare with Dean's legs taking control over his body.
Joe was obviously a hostage as one slight movement would cause his arm to break and remove the usefulness of his steady blocking.
In order to not fail his team, Joe recklessly broke his arm while gritting the pain and signalling Lirgo to attack Dean.
The grunt released from Joe grabbed Dean's surprise before noticing white blades showing above him.
Looking towards Lirgo, Dean saw that he was subtly controlling the small daggers like an orchestra in an elegant manner while leaving himself open
From the barrier before, Lirgo was not adept in any Elemental Magic and from the creation of those blades, Dean guessed that he was a Conjurer.
A magician who could create something from nothing.
The blades flew and danced against the wind as they aimed to the sides of Dean.
The first onslaught aimed to his right but Dean used Joe as a shield to block the strike but Lirgo had predicted that and stopped the blades immediately.
Joe sighed in relief however Dean's endeavors had yet to end
To the left was the other small daggers that aimed towards Dean, using the shield that Joe had dropped allowed Dean to stay safe when he kicked it towards himself.
Lying on the floor in a defenseless state, Katrina took advantage of the situation and rushed up towards Dean, Striking her longsword down.
Tired of the pointless tossing and turning, Dean relented from his position and allowed Katrina to stab the empty ground where his head once was.
Seeing the deadly attack that aimed to take his head, Dean calmly smiled.
Lirgo saw the menacing smile and saw it as provocation
"What are you smiling for?!"
He was slightly aggravated due to their failing onslaught of attacks but he received his answer
"Because of him"
Just learnt Inkstone had emojis.
Not sure how to feel about it because they turn into question marks randomly
