Deniel's breathing started to become harder and faster, and soon he became so weak he couldn't even keep his arms on the spear anymore. They fell harmlessly to the ground, and his spine bent backwards so that he was on his knees and bent backwards, looking like he was just killed. Deniel was staring up at the ceiling to the cave, and he could tell that his vision was starting to blur. There were four spikes above him, but he started to see eight, then four, and then eight again. To him, this was the end. "End of the line, eh Nidhogg?"
He asked him, completely lost of all hope that he was going to live through this. Nidhogg, on the other hand, knew it wasn't. "Quite the opposite, actually."
Deniel was now more confused than ever, and his confusion even brought some of his strength back. "W-What?"
Deniel's vision suddenly started to become clear again, and he could feel strength returning to his arms.
His opponent wasn't listening to this, and even had his back turned to him. He was walking away to go back up to the top of the treasure pile, and didn't notice that Deniel was now starting to get up. "You're not dead, Deniel. Not even close. You just think you are. Now get up and kick his ass!"
Deniel was somehow able to do exactly as Nidhogg said, but it didn't make too much sense to him. He was just stabbed in his heart, how was he able to do this? Not only that, but he felt stronger. He got off of his knees and grabbed the spear, pulling out of his chest with little to no effort. He looked down at Nidhogg, which he had dropped earlier when he put both of his hands on the spear. He grabbed the blade and picked it up, reuniting with his partner once more. "Let's kick his ass."
The Gemstone Hunter was still oblivious to what was happening, and was only alerted when he heard footsteps behind himself. He turned around to see Deniel all well and good, even though is chest was bleeding, and he was delivering yet another blow to him. The Gemstone Hunter was caught off guard, and Deniel pretty much exchanged blows with him with the next attack. He cut from the hunter's shoulder all the way to his waist, making sure that Nidhogg went in deep. "You son of a-"
Deniel wasn't going to let him finish his sentence or let him counter attack him, so he twirled his body around and sent his fist straight into his stomach once his cut was complete. "Is that all you've got!?"
The hunter gagged, stepping backwards rapidly before losing his balance and falling flat on his back. Deniel was walking to him, looking both angry and amused. He had a harsh scowl on his face with his eyes and eyebrows, but his mouth had the same smirk he always carried on it. The Gemstone Hunter crawled backwards until Deniel reached him, but then held out his battle axe to him. "Stay back, or I'll kill you!"
with his Twilight Mimic, Deniel could have ended the fight right then and there.....but chose not to. He obeyed the Gemstone Hunter's command and took several paces back, which gave him room to stand up. "What are you-"
Deniel interrupted him with a harsh command, "Get up!"
The Gemstone Hunter got up with shaky arms and legs, starting to fear Deniel now. "Come on, fight me already."
Even though that's what he had been doing for the past ten minutes, the Gemstone Hunter was surprised at Deniel's command. "Wha-"
Deniel slashed Nidhogg in the air, causing a strike of air pressure to go right past the Gemstone Hunter and down the cavern they were in. "You heard me! Get up and fight me already. I'm not killing you yet, I want to enjoy this a little more. You stabbed me in the chest, so it's time for me to return the favor. Make this amusing to me."
The Gemstone Hunter was still a little confused and very afraid, but after he took a big gulp of his own saliva, he cast aside all of his fear and cowardice. He nodded and threw away his battle axe. Following up the weapon came something that would give Deniel the most amusement: A crystal katana. If he was going to defeat Deniel, he might as well do it at his own game. That still worked vice versa as well. If Deniel was going to beat him, it might as well be at what he's best at. "Fine! But this time, I'll make sure you won't get up."
