As Heero nodded to Hana as she continued to talk; he noticed Rose bust out a picnic basket from nowhere. She waved Tykva and Tamka over to help pass out the sandwiches with bacon, and chips and dip. The raccoon and the other Exceed likely would help her out, and when everyone had their snacks he would nod to Hana.
"Yea, it's a great feeling knowing that if anyone messes with those around you......you have the power to lay the smackdown." he sparkled as he bit into his BLT, leaning back as Rose spread out food in front of them.
"That's one goal every wizard shares, Hana." Heero said, looking up at the blue skies above Clover Town. The track abandoned outside of the gym. Behind Heero, the giant statue of an Iron Dragon sat sparkling in the sunlight behind their picnic. "But what are your goals as a wizard? Maybe one day to become the strongest ice wizard ever....to uncover a hidden kind of Magic? To use Magic to maybe go back and correct something you did in the past?" he then smiled at Gamon nodding to him.
"You've come so far in such a short amount of time Gamon...I'm so amazed....Hana's my apprentice directly, so she receives a lot of training from me that others don't....I expected her to progress this fast...but you."
Rose would smile, remembering some of the adventures she'd been on with Gamon as well.
"He's something else once he gets pissed off huh? He's more handsome when he's nice and calm though..." Rose said passing a bag of chips Gamon's way, throwing them through the air at him stylishly.
For awhile now, they'd just eat, laugh, and talk together. Compare foot sizes, be a family. Heero even commented on Hana's hair being a bit whiter than Gamons, but Gamon's hair being a bit spikier than his. After about twenty minutes, they would finish up. Heero let out a loud burp, and then sparkled.
"This is also part of our training!" Heero said, as Rose brought out three steaming bowls of Ramen for them, flying into Clover Town and then back out. "The last course will be this onion and cheese Ramen, hope you guys can beat me in a noodle eating contest...." Heero said, twirling his chopsticks SUPER fast, and then clicking them together.
Before they could begin though. Something pierced the skies.
It sounded like a car crash, mixed with a lion's roar. But it was unmistakeable. Especially to the three here.
Heero's mind, soul, and heart, raced. He hadn't seen one since he accidentally found Grandine in his teenage years, she'd trained him Sky Dragon Slayer magic. Was it her? Was it his Dad?! Zeuslogia?! Or something much...much worse. His final thought was confirmed, as a giant black scaled Dragon, unmistakeable in it's markings. Would swoop through the clouds, it's blue neon markings glowing brightly as it seemed to shift mid-air into a man in a twist of magic.
The man would soar, down, down, downward. Landing, in a swoop of his long silver spiked hair, with markings on his face in a tribal fashion. He wore loose black combat robes, that looked ripped. This was, Acnologia. The Black Dragon himself.
"Ah, Heero. More Dragons for the army then?" Acnologia joked, as he stepped forward. "Be blessed my children, normally a human would never have the dignity of speaking with me, or hearing the voice of a God such as I. But perhaps you will be like this one....many Slayers have risen and fallen in the millenia since I've been around. But only one became able to do what I could.....this one here." he pointed at Heero.
"So the only reason you're not ripping us all to shreds is because I mastered the Dragon Form transformation?" Heero visibly looked shaken, disturbed, and for once. Visibly not his normal confident self. A look that disturbed Rose to no end.
In response, Acnologia would merely nod with his arms crossed. Eyeing Hana and Gamon.
"Both of you will fight against Heero and myself. If I am not pleased, I will kill all of you, including your pets." he said, pointing at Rose, Tamka, and Tykva without even moving or looking at them. "And then, Clover Town."
A shot of Heero, Hana, and Gamon standing across from Acnologia was shown as Heero sighed knowing he didn't have a choice. He would walk over, and stand next to Acnologia.
"Don't fret Heero, it's only training." Acnologia said with a troll like expression. A joke from a God? Heero would grit, and sweatdrop a bit afraid to speak back.
"How can it be just training with a stipulation like that? Are you insane?!" as he said this, Acnologia would raise a hand behind him; and in a huge wave of light; completely destroy the Iron Dragon behind them that was over 1000 ft tall. In a display as to show Heero not to talk back to him. Looking on in awe, Heero would just sweatdrop.
"Now, come at us young Dragon Slayers. Heero do not hold back, if you do, this little game I intend to play is over, and so are all your existences." Acnologia said to him without looking at him as usual, even though he was standing right next to him. "Three Dragon Slayers in one spot...of course I found you, you have to be more careful if you're ever to take me down Heero."
With that, Heero and Acnologia would assume fighting stances next to one another and wait for Hana and Gamon to charge them.
