Duo waved his hand. "I appreciate the offer, but I can handle myself." He paused for a moment before assuming his BlackWarGreymon form with a burst of black light. He took a few deep breaths, the transformation was still a bit draining after all, but in this form he was able to take to the skies.
Samael let out a sharp whistle and the Behemoth roared up beside him. He turned to Tia with a smirk. "Hey, pretty lady, you want a ride?" he asked. He turned to Duo, Lucia, and Justin. "How 'bout you guys? I've never done threesies, but we can give it a try. Who wants the handlebars? Duo? It feels like you."
He offered his hand to Lucia. "My lady."
Lucia took his hand with a smile. "Of course."
"You want me to carry you as well Justin? You should b light enough."
The SuperStarmon smirked. "And let you carry me? Never, I'd rather walk the whole way."
"Suit yourself." Duo said before taking to the skies, Lucia in his arms.
Justin sat for a moment before turning to Samael, an embarrassed look on his face as he scratched the back of his head with one of his gloved hands. "So, about that ride..."
Lucia nodded and went about checking the Devas. Their wounds didn't seem severe, at least not on the surface, but it was obvious that whatever had hit them had left its mark. If only she was able to access her QueenChessmon form again, her Queen Stamp might be able to help them recover...
"Lucia. Ivy. Attend to the Devas," Michael said. "Justin, Shoon, Pyra, and Gunier: spread out and see if there's any sign of Mephistopheles. The rest of you, with me: we're going to the great hall. Stay alert."
Justin meanwhile was spreading out with the other three as Duo followed the rest of the Peacemakers into the grand hall. The SuperStarmon eye was twitching behind his shades, but he still attempted to maintain a composed look. Though why he had to wait out here, he had no idea...
The others split up, except for Shoon who just seemed to hang around, so Justin figured he may as well look like he was looking around and headed off to search the room. Though he made an apparent effort, he found no sign of anything that would have indicated the demon's presence.
As the others returned, Justin leaned back against a pillar.
"No sign of the big M, aside from those Devas over there that is." Justin said. "Why can't he just come out and fight us like a man instead of all this running around like a sissy."
"...Anyways, I saw no sign of Mephistopheles. And I'm willing to bet that Guinier and Justin didn't have any better luck. Let's reconvene with them."
Lucia made her way into the grand hall and nearly dropped her sword at the sight that lay before her. The four Harmonious Compass Gods lay broken and weak, their eye sockets hollow and empty and scorched.
"By God," Michael whispered, he closed his eyes and shook his head. "Call Lucia and Ivy here, their wounds are more critical."
"What in the..." She shook her head, now was not the time worry. They needed help.
She made her way to the closest one, Seiryu, and began to treat his wounds as best she could. But with her limited medical supplies though, things were going to be tough. She didn't even know how to begin treating this, but she could at least lessen their pain...
Lucia flinched for a moment, and drew back her hand. However, she wasn't going to let the words of a demon she barely knew stop her from helping. So, she returned to her work, being a little more careful than usual not to touch her patients.
“Obviously, an extremely high-tier spell was used here. Maybe even more than one,” he said, grinning. “Can’t you feel it, oh great saint? This place is practically flooded with the residue of great demon magic,” he said, spreading his arms out wide and taking a deep breath, as if breathing in fresh air. “And those four on the ground are smothered in it! You should probably watch yourselves around them, ladies,” he told Lucia and Ivy. “You wouldn’t want to get…infected,” he said with a grin.
