Gluttony observed while his fire continued to fall on top of his target.
Ellie, Claire, Joseph, Dia, and Detra all looked with their mouths wide open as the storm of fire continued to approach.
"Young miss!!!" Detra yelled, "Can you absorb that??"
"I- I can't!" Ellie confessed, "I still can barely move!!"
"Oh, great..." Detra whispered while raising another wall of ice.
She tried to stop the fire but her spell simply vanished in a matter of seconds due to the extreme heat.
"Joseph!!!" Claire shouted, "do the thing!!!"
The boy looked at her confused for a couple of seconds and then snapped his fingers, "the thing!! Of course!!"
"The thing...?" Ellie, Dia, and Detra repeated.
The boy then moved in front of them and raised his broken shield aimed at the incoming flames.
"Joey!! Are you crazy!!?? Get out of there!!" Ellie screamed.
"Trust me!! I know what I'm doing!" he replied.
Special thanks to Joseph_char for naming the power for the Joseph character!
Both "Hot Vacuum" and "Thermo Assimilation" were his ideas!
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
