As Zabar came into view, Nathan could clearly see another fireball, nearly mesmerizing by its convection and haphazard rolling and tumbling. He readied to run away, dodge, or otherwise once again.

Then Zabar landed on a pilar close by, and... jumped... off...

...

Whilst becoming vaguely aware that the fireball had now left Zabar's care and was hurtling towards him, Nathan started running. Right at the Vacuan. Or at least, his predicted landing spot.

Not getting far enough away by the time the fireball lost its integrity, Nathan got slightly singed - well, okay, not slightly, he got outright burned - by the expanding mass. However, he held strong, using all the power he could to swing the hardest swing possible right at Zabar's back.

The hardest he could.

Zabar saw Nathan run up to him as the fireball flew past, exploding behind him and causing the arena to light up once more. In the flash of light, he brought his right arm up to block the staff, a loud clang erupting as, for a moment, it seemed like it had worked. Then, as the moment passed, Zabar felt his arm ripped down toward the ground with is body following suit, quickly slamming his arm into the ground and his head down next to it. Everything went fuzzy for a moment as he could hear the muffled voice of Vulco screaming about some table being broken in half. As the fuzziness faded from his vision, he lifted himself and slammed his fist into the ground, creating another loud clang.

"That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!" He yelled as he lifted himself up off the ground and back into a fighting stance. "That's what I've been waiting for!" The chambers in his gauntlets spun around and landed on the fire and lightning canisters. The gauntlets began to glow a searing red and crackled with electricity as Vulco's voiced filled the arena once more, screaming out "ARENAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA SHIIIIIIIIIFT!
 TIME FOR A CAGE MATCH!
" Just as the pillars came sliding back into the ground, the around around the edge of the arena shone with a reflective light, almost as if glass had encased the field.

Zabar smiled and ducked forward toward Nathan, elbowing the staff out of his way and grabbing onto his shoulder with his right hand, sending a searing hot pain into the boy. Then, just as quickly as he grabbed him, Zabar rocketed his fist toward Nathan's gut, expecting him to double over, he pulled back his right arm and slammed a powerful right hook directly toward the side of Nathan's head.

As the hit connected on the arm of a very quick to react Zabar, Nathan's Aura flashed bright white enough to become the dominant source of light for a few dozen meters. Almost instantly, he felt the urge to bend forward, in a vain attempt to annihilate the sensation of blood leaving his head. Still in the thick of it, he was unable to do much more than take the hit when Zabar launched one right into his stomach.

He did, however, find the strength to roll to his right immediately afterwards, the scorching hot hand on his shoulder proving to be mildly stimulating. As he landed and he didn't feel like he was a quarter of the way through fainting, he used the occasion to send a half-hearted jab at Zabar's left knee.

Zabar used his missed shot to spin back around, following Nathan with his eyes. 'Not getting away that easy.' He thought as he saw Nathan, still on his side, halfheartedly jab toward him. He quickly dropped down on one knee and punched down against staff, attempting to pin it to the ground as he brought his other knee forward to slam into Nathan's face. Hoping the knee to the face would knock his opponent back down, he quickly lifted himself up and began to let out a plume of flames down on the ground toward Nathan as he jumped backward, away from the staff.

Managing to stay out of reach of Zabar's knee by remaining on his side, Nathan felt a whole lot better when he stopped being in a blood-drained state, albeit remained shaky. Rolling further to his right, he avoided the tongues of flame. Using the top of his staff, he pushed against the floor to stand back up as rapidly as possible, nearly fucked it up due to his current state and used the remaining momentum as a slight boost whilst thrusting Ergia into Zabar's abdomen.

Zabar kept his hand trained on Nathan as he rolled, he wouldn't be so foolish as to keep his flames pointed in a single direction, and deftly sidestepped to the right and out of the way of the thrust as he saw his opponent begin to move toward him. The flames were quickly snuffed out from Zabar's clenched fist as Nathan passed him and he quickly kicked off the ground toward him.

The Vacuan slid toward Nathan, left arm bent and elbow pointed out to strike against his back, with his right arm pulled all the way back and thrust forward, carried by the momentum of the slide, toward the small of Nathan's back in an attempt to send him flying toward glassy cage that surrounded the arena several meters away.

As Nathan was covered in flames, he did his best to endure the resulting pain, keeping an eye trained on Zabar as much as possible. The man avoided his strike, but that wasn't exactly unexpected.

As he shot past the Vacuan, he kept the opponent within line of sight, knowing very well that not looking is the same as not caring in a fight. This allowed him to see Zabar start to go on the offensive, prompting Nathan to attempt to spear him while still looking away, thrusting Ergia towards his chest, intending to use the staff's superior reach.

Zabar felt the end of staff slam against his chest, had he not been wearing his chest piece, that attack might have winded him and cost him valuable time. Instead, he grit his teeth and endured the pain, letting the heat wash over him and the electricity crackle across the armor. Wasting no more time, he quickly brought both of his hands down onto the staff and gripped. hard.

He turned his body to the right shifting his grip on the staff as he did so, and planted his feet firmly to the ground. He arms tensed as he swung the staff around with his opponent still attached and launched them away from him, toward the ground on the opposite side of the arena.



Just as Nathan hit the ground, the glassy cage around the arena flashed and disappeared. The sound of Vulco laughing from the announcers booth rung around the stadium, overtaking any cheers or boos that had been in place before. "WELCOME TO THE SLOPE, B ҉   ҉ CHES!" was all that could be heard before the ground rumbled once more, and began to slowly tip to the side, placing Nathan at the bottom of the hill and Zabar at the top.



Zabar looked down at the arena as it sloped below him, Nathan was up now, same as him and recovered from the shifting floor. As he looked down at his opponent and the floor below him, an idea came to mind, one that he would only get a single chance at. Whether it was a good idea or a bad idea, he wasn't sure. All he was sure of was that it was an interesting idea, and that was good enough.

The chamber in the Vacuan's left arm spun back around to propulsion dust as Zabar pointed it down toward Nathan and fired off a burst of dust, sending him sliding backward, just barely against the edge of the arena. Once he had solid footing, the chamber cycled around again to ice dust, keeping it pointed directly toward Nathan in case he got any bright ideas. 'There might not be much left in this gauntlet, but there has to be enough for at least the plan... the ice dust doesn't give off any effect to the gauntlet, if I can catch him off guard by making him think I'm still on kinetic dust then I can get the advantage... if not...'

Zabar raised his right hand high above his head and opened his palm up to the sun above, and as the light beat down from the sun and the air above Zabar's hand begin to shimmer, flames began shooting up into the air before being pulled back down toward his palm and being whipped around into perfect, explosive ball that grew each second. '... Then I'll make it work.'

As Nathan attempted to pull his staff back into a defensive position, he very perceptively noticed it wasn't budging. He also noticed, with his eyes, that Zabar was securing his grip.

He only had the time to briefly brace before getting outright lifted into the air and casually thrown to nearly the other side of the arena. Retracting the staff mid-flight, he received himself straight into the cage. Oddly enough, it felt so smooth it was slick, yet was as unyielding (or perhaps, even more so) as a block of tungsten.

Picking himself up with Ergia in compact form in his left hand, Nathan looked back at Zabar as the slight... what was it? Refraction? Caused by the cage amplified, then disappeared with a slight flash. The stage then proceeded to tilt.

Like, the entire thing.

Managing to retain balance, he watched as Zabar walked back to the opposite edge and took what he guessed was a defensive stance. Except the arm thrust right into the air, that only reminded him of-

Aaah. Yep. Yyyyep, there it was, the spirit bomb or whatchama call it. He genuinely didn't know what the Vacuan used to refer to that move, he realized.

Keeping Ergia as it is, he also backed off a bit, but not right up to the edge of the arena, steadied himself as best he could and kept alert, ready to use Ergia in whichever way would be most fitting.

Then, he waited.

Zabar glanced upward briefly toward the mass of flames that loomed above him. It was nearly as big as he was now and he could feel the heat beating down off it, hotter than any day in the desert he'd seen. He could feel the strain on his body from the semblance but he could feel he had more than enough time left to do what needed to be done.

In a quick motion, Zabar activated his semblance with his left had, switched the fireball over to it, spun the chambers in both gauntlets to lightning on the left and ice on the right, and started to funnel lightning dust into the already large ball above him.

"It's do or die now, Nathan!" Zabar yelled down to his opponent over the sound of roaring flames and crackling electricity. "You seem pretty intent on walkin' outta here unscathed, bud, but you've made one mistake too many!" He pointed his right hand down to the ground in front of him and smiled brightly. "You're predicable, try to fix that!"

A wave of ice dust shot out of Zabar's hand as he jumped forward and landed on it, letting him slide down the sloped arena extremely quickly. As he sped toward Nathan, he bent his arm down slightly, preparing to slam down the fireball onto Nathan. The flames licked downward at his arm and though he couldn't feel the pain through thanks to the gauntlets, he felt the heat. The electricity that was still be shot into it sparked around wildly, crackling and flickering off of the gauntlet almost as loudly as the flames.

His hairs stood on end, he tensed his right arm, ready to spin the chamber at any moment, he could feel the tingle of electricity through his body. He felt alive.

As Zabar kept making the ball of lames grow, then seemed to start putting electricity into the roaring inferno, Nathan kept looking at Zabar, lit by the flickering mess of a hellfire that kept growing above his head.

Then Zabar started talking, kinda hard to hear, what with the madhouse he had in his hand, after which he started... sliding? Yep, he started sliding towards Nathan.

As soon as the ice started coming out of Zabar's hand, Nathan started running as fast as he could to his left, putting Ergia in its harness at the same time. He was skirting the arena's edge, but he'd at least avoid being charged by the Vacuan.

Zabar kept his hand held high above his head as he lowered his body into a complete slide before extending the claws on his right gauntlet and slamming them into the ice, stopping him from sliding any further. "You're just gonna run from me!?" He called over the flames and crackles of lightning. 'Sonovagun....'

He popped to his feet and leveled his right arm slightly ahead of Nathan as he ran and activated his semblance, forming an ice shard and firing it toward Nathan's feet before the chamber in his arm spun to propulsion dust and he sprinted toward his opponent, intent on slamming the great ball of fire into him.

Dammit. Dammit, dammit, dammit. This was not good. Not only did Zabar have great defense at range, he had - at the moment, anyway - great offense from afar as well. To win, the easiest thing to do would probably be to strike him with his semblance. This was not a valid option with the current light (and, incidentally, heat) source frolicking above the Vacuan's hand. His only ranged option was Ergia's rifle form, and he couldn't exactly use that with his semblance now co--

Oh. Oh but wait just a sec. This might work.

Keeping up his pace, and maybe even speeding up due to Zabar apparently being in the Sprinting Zone, Nathan reached behind his back and took his weapon. While still running, he put it between his hands, holding onto the top and bottom, and forced the chamber to cycle. The round already present therein got lazily ejected into the barrel, which opened to let it pass, while another slug took its place.

When the metallic bullet hit his left hand, Nathan changed his grip to hold it like he usually did - that is, by the side rather than the extremity. He simultaneously closed his left fit around the small object and, upon analysis of his current situation, thought it better to put Ergia back in its harness rather than deploying it into staff form in an attempt to confuse the adversary.

Zabar could feel the weight of the ball pressing down on his arm, there wasn't anymore time, it happened now or it didn't happen at all. He glanced upward just in time to see the lightning sputter out and a smile formed against gritted teeth. This was as big as he'd ever gone with dust, and as far as he cared to test himself. He refocused on his opponent one last time before he finalized the plan. He was close, close enough, and had his weapon in that jump pack form.

Perfect.

Zabar took one last dash forward and leaped up into the air, followed by a burst of kinetic dust from his right hand, sending him high into the and directly above his opponent. He pulled his arm back and focused all the aura he could into his semblance, every bit of expendable aura to make it faster. This was, win or lose, the final strike. With all his might, Zabar brought down the enormous fireball toward his opponent, slightly to the left and toward the center of the arena in anticipation of any dodge. The fireball sped down toward the ground, flames and forks of lightning trailing off of it as it sailed straight and true.

Nathan was about to turn around to know where to send his bullet when his shadow moved differently from before.

It started becoming shorter at an alarming rate.

He started jumping away, off the arena, and was just about to be entirely over the pit when the heat and ozone smell became utterly overwhelming. The ball exploded, sending him careening much farther than he'd planned when jumping. It felt as if lightning was coursing throughout his entire body, melting his skin off as a side effect.
