The vulcans had disappeared after Selah had knocked them together, leaving Zen to fight with the tree. Selah looked back to the hounds, gripping her sword and striking at both of them. "Alright you mutts, beat it!"
She commanded. These ones were stubborn, they couldn't be forced away with violence as easily as the others. But maybe if she played dirty, she just might scare them away. Selah raised her sword up high before swinging it like a bat, the end of it digging into the ground before popping out and spraying dirt everywhere- including into the eyes of the wolves. They yelped pushing their noses into the dirt and trying to rub the dirt out with their paws before quickly running away.
Now Selah could focus on what they had come here for- the monster that was terrorizing the forest. She slide the sword on her back once more before running over to Zen. When she gazed upon the monstrous tree she began to study it. A short analysis showed Selah that this was something that had been controlled using marionette magic, but whoever cast the spell on it had clearly bit off more than they could chew. Fire spells is what what take this down, just like Zen had said. Selah had just the spell for this, the perfect spell to take down this out of control puppet.
Selah looked over to one of the nearer trees, then back to Zen. "Okay folks, things are about to get hot in here! Lets get you somewhere safer."
She said, looking to Zen. "This forest may burn for what im about to do, and we wouldn't want you getting caught in the blaze now would we? Without you not having your magic and all."
Selah raised her finger to her temple. Time to push her body to the limits. "Memory Make: Volo Orbis!"
At the sound of those words, a ring of light burst from the ground at Selah's feet. A white magic circle appeared over her chest, just above her heart. Spiraling patterns of magic circuitry worked their way down her legs. When those magic circuits reached her feet, the circle of light below her faded and Selah was ready. She picked up Zen and started running, her feet carrying her at an astonishing speed of twenty-six miles per hour. When she reached a considerable distance, Selah set Zen down and ran back for the tree- heading right for it.
Before she reached the marionette, she veered an hopped onto the trunk of a tree. Selah used her speed to climb the tree as high as she could before gravity would force her down, then hopped to a tree closer to her target. With one final leap Selah was over the Marionette. "Dovah Lu: Agnaar Rein!"
She said, once more using dragons tongue. What followed after could only be described as stunning. From Selah's mouth came a pillar of dark black and red flame shot forth, the unholy spell striking the Marionette in the chest before it could react.
Before Selah could fall to the ground she took her sword out and spun with it. She landed a critical blow to the marionette's arm- almost cutting it clean off before she felt a hit land on her side and heard something crack. Selah found herself flying to the ground, landed with a heavy thud. She recoiled in pain, arm wrapping over her stomach to clutch her damaged side. "S-shit!"
She cursed. She knew that every hit she took while under the effects of Volo Orbis would hurt. The extra speed meant extra damage she came to a stop to fast.
Selah dug her sword into the ground, propping herself up. Still clutching her side, Selah stood on unsteady legs and readied her sword. This wasn't over yet. Her body ached and begged for her to stop. The over exertion caused by Volo Orbis, the blow from the Marionette, the sting of her burnt hand from summoning the molten knight. As she looked back at Zen she saw the effects of the fire spells she had used. It wasn't too bad, only a small chunk was burning. Selah commanded the Molten Knight to handle the fire and absorb it, while she dealt with the Marionette."Okay, let's do this."
Selah said as she raised her sword to fight. She dashed forward, planning to sweep with her sword and knock the giant tree of its feet- but it had other plans. As she approached it, its foot rose up and it delivered a swift kick to her mid-section. She couldn't have avoided it, she was moving to fast to stop or change course. Selah was sent into the air, right in front of the burnt section of its chest where both the molten knight had hit, and her roar had hit. Correcting her position in air, Selah moved to swing before she saw the marionettes arm start reel back and swing. That was the arm she hit before, and it was loose. As swung, Selah struck with her sword and the arm fell clean off.
Now for the final blow. Pulling the sword back, Selah drove it tip first into the burnt section of the Marionette tip first. The sword pushed straight through to the other side. The Marionette howled in pain before falling to the ground with the sword still in its chest. Selah landed on her hands and knees, coughing hard. She stood up, wiped some blood off her face, and the sword vanished. All of her spells dissipated at once. The Molten Knight, having already stopped the forest fire, vanished and the magic circuitry of Volo Orbis faded. Selah carefully walked over to Zen, clutching her side once more, and said "Common. Let's go tell that rabbit that we scared away the intruder."
