Chapter 23: The First Big Mega Ultra Gigantic Huge Boss Fight At The End of The First Game Disc, Part II
"You CAN dispel the debuff, you just kinda umm not have to suck at it" Sam yelled out. Sam managed to cure the Black Death Debuff from Vero, Joy, Maria, and FDG, but he had to let UDP die.
Sam felt ill. It was like he was playing God there. He chose UDP to die out of anybody else. But, he was the weakest link class-wise. UDP was a scholar class and although powerful, was nowhere near as strong as the other four. But still, Sam began hating himself for that.
"I will find a way to bring back Eldanen, Isha, and now UDP" Sam said, trying to fight back the tears.
"And pluie, don't forget pluie...." Sam turned around, kind of surprised to see Dolphin standing next to him casting waterbolts and fireballs.
"Abraham kills all" Abraham shouted to Sam. He rushed toward Sam, killing him. "Aieeee!" Dolphin said, being knocked back twenty yards from the impact. Mune raised his right arm and resurrected Sam.
Sean, Nick, Jessica, Mimosa and Steve all glared at Abraham. He was weak. "Melee Delta Attack!....Formation......Ho!" Mimosa said, their bodies suddenly flashing red. Mimosa crouched down, slashing at Abraham's knees. Nick and Jessica twirled around and sliced at Abraham's mid-section. Steve jumped up and sliced at Abraham's shoulders. Sean jumped up even further and swung at Abraham's head. They all then clumped together in a victory battle pose. Abraham looked down. Abraham's knees got sliced off, then his mid-section, his shoulders and finally, his head detatched from his neck. Abraham was defeated. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOO" he screamed. The whole island began shaking violently. Black rays of light kept emanating out of Abraham's corpse. He was about to blow.
"We have to get out of here!" Dolphin merged her powers with the Atlantic Ocean, and summoned a huge tidal wave that was big enough to carry all the adventurers out of the island. They all started swimming as fast as they could. Mune conjured little raftboats for people to sail themselves in, especially for the ones that weren't very good swimmers. Sam turned around and watched the whole island explode.
Maria noticed something floating in the debris, lodged between two palm trees. She pulled apart the trees with a few group member's help and picked up the object. "The Black Axe of Abraham..... I'm a Fire Mage, I can't equip this" Maria said. "Looks like melee classes will have to roll for it."
Sean, Steve, Nick, Mimosa, Jessica and all the other melee classes kept agruing about who could keep such an epic weapon. I mean shit, an Idea used it, it has to be really strong. "Hey Sam, do you have any dice?" Sean called out.
"Just let Sean have it" Sam said.
"You're only saying that because you're in love with him!" Jessica said. "That is not fair!" Everybody in the raid kept arguing again.
"Ugh guys, do not fight over loot damnit" Bionicgoat said.
"No, I'm being objective. Sean is the raid's main tank, gearing him up first is the most important thing, right? The weapon goes to Sean, and I don't lo-...." Sam looked at Sean and then looked away. He knew he had to try and keep his private life separate from his work now, but he didn't want to exactly lie. "Er, um, er, umm...shut up Jessica!"
Sean picked up the axe and put it in his back holster. "All right man!" he said happily.
They all managed to safely swim and sail to another island. They saw one normal old couple sitting in beach chairs, who looked at all the adventurers and just gawked. "Go away" Sam said all broody and introverted-like. The normals screamed in fear and ran away. "Yeah see man, this is what I meant about you making our reputation suck..." Steve whispered to Sam from behind.
Diana approached Sam, wringing the last bit of water from her blonde locks. "Uh, Sam....about us being one big happy family now, this sort of thing can't happen often, you know that, right? Us being together like this does make us stronger. But it also makes us more vulnerable, and we wouldn't want to be just all lumped up together, only to be defeated all at once by a smarter foe."
Slacker Mom stood by Diana. "Yeah, for an Idea, Abraham is pretty weak" she said. "A lot of us have been studying about the Ideas too, when we have the time...."
Guanzon nodded at Diana and Slacker Mom. "Yeah.....our own lives, Sam. Like Isha told you about before?" Gulanzon said snottily. "We have them remember? We put a big enough dent in evil enough to back off for awhile, wouldn't you say?" the tone of his voice was of course anger mixed with sadness.
Sean walked up to Sam. "Yeah, I have to get back to work" He looked down at his watch. "Like, now." Sam's heart kinda sunk in his chest. It was what Sam was afraid of, he finally met a guy he liked but the guy just wanted to go to work and do normal life-ish things all the damn time. "But Sean? You got that cool looking axe. You don't wanna go fight some demons?"
"Maybe later, Sam" Sean said. He kept walking off, with Sam staring at his ass when he did so. Sam looked at everybody just trailing off....."Uh, Ezra? Hey! Ezra, remember our 'Yin-yin' joke man, heh, you want to come fight with me, right?" Ezra shook his head and walked past Sam. "Maria? We can go to gay bars and have slumber parties and yeaaaaah!" Maria shook her head. "I'm sorry Sam, but not now...." she said.
"Is there ANYBODY that's gonna be in MY party?" Sam shouted. Dolphin stood by Sam and half-smiled. "I am here still, but we do need a break." Steve went up to Sam again. "I'm in." Sam knew that Gulanzon would be out. "Vero?" Sam said.
"Yeah, Adam and I are in still" she said solemnly. Sam looked at Akra. "How about you?"
Akra shook her head. "Trust me, I do want to fight evil with you Sam. It's just.... I have to practice my powers a lot more, privately. I blame myself for what happened in that Clear Dragon fight. I just KNOW there's a song to break stop, and well- I guess right now I'm just plauged with too much guilt." She started to walk away, but she turned back around again after five seconds. "I might return, someday.... but now, Gulanzon needs somebody to look after him. He's not really in the mood to speak to you, Sam."
Sam looked at Dolphin, Steve, Vero and Mune. "Looks like it's just us five now" Sam said. They saved the world from total destruction by an Idea, but the victory was bittersweet, considering at what they lost in the process.
