Samael still said nothing at that, and he hoisted the blank Tsukime up and activated another Mana-Sword, and stabbed with it right down at Tsukime.
And that was when Matthew intervened. He looked positively enraged. It was as if these two knew each other, so to speak. More like Samael had done some bad things to Matthew.
No. There was a more primal hatred in Matthew's gaze at Samael. He readied a high level Majitek Sword and shouted, "SAMAEL!!!!!!!!!"
The masked man finally spoke, saying in a low, almost surprisingly soft voice, "Ah, Matthew, I was wondering how much abuse this girl had to suffer before you'd come running."
He used Amu's ability to create ice, and defended himself from Matthew that way, but then found himself dodging attacks from Hans, who darted in and unleashed a barrage of punches at the masked man.
After jumping up to evade, he had to deflect a red blast from Claus. He positioned his arms to the side, and two red spell circles formed as Matthew and Hans appeared to the sides and Matthew slashed with his sword, Hans punching at a cross like emblem which rushed forward, both attacks colliding into the red circles prepared to defend from each one.
The attacks began to spark and clash against one another, the red spell circles pushing back against Matthew and Hans. Claus tried to help by sending a red arc up by slashing with his sword, resulting in an explosion when all five attacks collided due to the arc.
Matthew flew backward, activating a flight spell, Hans likewise. Samael did not even wait for the smoke to clear before rushing out at Matthew, jabbing at him with his Mana-Sword. Matthew moved quickly left and right to dodge each thrust. Samael then gathered more power into his left hand sword and brought it down from above at Matthew.
The teenage swordsman blocked by creating another majitek sword in his left hand and bringing it up just in time, but he was sent falling downward due to the force involved. He then amplified his speed and rushed up at Samael, who clashed with him. Both fighters then separated and flew about the sky area occasionally crashing into one another, resulting in a large explosion.
Samael pointed one arm at Matthew when the two rested in front of a large skyscraper, and a huge treebranch generated out of Samael's arm, rushing at Matthew and hoping to throw him through it. He tried to defend against it by creating a sword array in front of him, but ended up having to make another behind him when the tree branch pushed him back into the building anyway.
Samael, not willing to take a chance, activated his Accurse Eye, sending a massive meteor at Matthew while he was still in the building full of confused people. Before anyone could ask what "that Sanfield kid" was doing there, he broke out through the ceiling and unsummoned one of his swords, summoning Durandal instead. He unsummoned the other and slashed with the enchanted sword with both hands, sending a huge wave at the meteor. At first, it looked just like it was cushioning the impact, merely slowing it down.
Hans suddenly showed up again and tried to punch Samael from behind. He was actually forced forward a little before he reactivated his Made Of Air
power again and Hans fell through to the ground due to the force behind his attack. Samael followed, creating a massive fireball in front of him. As he launched it at Hans, Matthew flew back in and, having actually managed to destroy the meteor, parried the massive fireball with his fire element sword, the fireball flowing inside of it.
Matthew and Hans panted, these fights with Samael were never easy...
