I shook the girl off, the magma elemental, by making my wings disappear. It caused her to drop to the ground, and I quickly summoned them back before I began to loose altitude. Another one of them, the boy, blasted a fiery bolt of lightning at me. I brushed it off, feeding off the electricity. The most the fire did was sting me. These kids have no idea what I am capable of... I thought, amused by the aspect of mere children trying to take me down. As for Kate... I turned my attention back to her, and the two of us faced each other. She was stronger than I had anticipated, yes. However, she didn’t have even a fraction of the experience I had.
“You’re a child,” I told her, coldly. “You shouldn’t be medaling with my affairs, and if your friends don’t stop attacking me they’re all going to find out what I can do.” It was true, I could kill them all, easily. None of them had the rage I had inside of me, the motivation to see others suffer.
“Leave them out of this, Vortex.” Kate told me. I could see a small amount of fear in her eyes, and her rage had clearly been replaced by protectiveness. “This is our fight. You killed my sister, and I was the one who came here to face you. They have nothing to do with this.”
“Yet they are attacking me. They stand for the same pointless cause you do. You and your friends help others. That’s the point of that? Humans cause each other so much pain, yet they still try their hardest to help and save others.” Spitting the last bit at her, I looked her in the eyes. I knew this from experience, how backstabbingly cruel people were to each other.
I dove at Kate, and the two of us fought, gaining altitude and slicing our blades. She was nothing, even if she didn’t realize it. Grabbing her by the throat, I held her up, suspended hundreds of feet in the air. She clawed at my hands, trying her hardest to set herself free. Her wings flapped aimlessly, and it took little effort to hold her.
“You can’t beat me, child. I am ancient, I am powerful. You are clouded by rage, and you know just as well as I do that you are nothing to me.” I hissed this in her ear, squeezing harder.
-Don’t PoV off of this yet, please. At least not until I get Kate’s PoV in. I’m submitting it separately.
