Nobody had stopped us as we walked into the arena and stood a hundred meters opposite each other.
"Are you ready?" I asked Jill; instead of answering, a powerful aura blasted out of her, and beautiful armor, dark as abyss, appeared on her body, realizing an aura that could make any Emperor feel fear.
Seeing her summoning her armor, I also summoned mine. Unlike her, my armor came silently without releasing any explosive aura.
It suited its current colors, which have become a little lighter after the baptism of cosmic elemental energies. Speaking of cosmic energies, it will be the first time I will be using my armor since I consumed those energies, and I am quite excited to test its power.
"Here, I came," Jill said and came at me with immense speed, one moment she was here, the next, she was in front of me.
"Abyss Drown!" She shouted, and dark flame covered her sword as she attacked. I also swung my sword in return, carefully observing the dark fire which I had heard so much about. This is no ordinary fire; it is Abyssal Flame or the life harvesting flame, as people call it.

By the time she was able to balance herself, I had dealt with her flame, seeing that a surprise couldn't help but flash for a moment in jills eyes.
With the power of 'First Boost' coursing through me, I appeared in front of her and swing my sword with great power. A spark of fear appeared in her eyes before her dark eyes became calm as Abyssal see, and an even powerful aura burst out of her as she swung her sword at me.
Our weapons clashed, a powerful invisible Abyssal energy came at me, and when it entered my body, it heated it like an oven before it got s.u.c.k.e.d by my armor. She did not come out as relaxed as me, the force of the attack powerful enough to make her take the steps back uncontrollably.
