Thrud's move cornered the god of healing . He didn't need to use a diagnostic spell to know that no potion could save his teammates . Their injuries were too deep, without providing them life force, any healing attempt would be as deadly as the wound itself .

Krishna Manohar knew it was over . He had failed to rescue his rescuers and now, weakened and alone, he was no match for his enemy . They were all already dead, the only variable was the order in which they would die .

The Mad Professor finally experienced defeat and it tasted like horseshit . The monumental self esteem that had been the beacon of his whole existence crumbled like a house of cards . He stood with a blank stare, incapable to react .

'I can't win . There's no reason to play if I can't win . ' He thought .

The Mad Queen didn't even bother with him, moving to her next target . Her plan was cruel and implemented with such precision that it would inspire terror in any sane person .

Unfortunately, her last opponents didn't fit the bill . Neither of them was ready to die nor surrender . Manohar fought only to win, whereas they were content with not losing .

"You already managed to hit her, yet she's still alive . What's gone wrong?" Jirni asked while Thrud yelled her promise .

"The problem it's not the sword, I can manage that . " Lith said leaving her impressed .

"The armor blocks all of my attacks and in a contest of pure magic, I'm no match for her . While she is free to focus only on countering my spells, I've no chances of winning . "

"Maybe I have a solution for that . " Where others would see The Mad Queen promise as a death sentence, Jirni saw an opportunity .

"I need you to buy me some time, can you do it?"

Lith nodded in reply . Thrud appeared between them, slashing at him while unleashing a hail of icicles at Jirni .

Lith blocked Arthan's Blade with ease as Jirni rolled behind a nearby column and escaped being turned into a kebab .

Thanks to Solus drawing power from the mana geyser, Lith was still as strong as when the fight had started . Thrud's body, instead, was severely weakened after being hit with the full force of three tier five spells .

It made the physical gap between them even wider . Lith tried to push the opponent's blade aside to headbutt her, but Thrud read his move . She didn't resist, so that he used too much force and found himself out of balance .

The Mad Queen used that split second to step in and execute a shoulder bash against Lith's sternum . It pushed him back and squeezed the air out of his lungs, leaving him defenseless .

'Even though my strength is diminished, the skill gap between us is more than enough to get rid of him . ' She thought .

When she tried to lunge at his chest, Lith deflected her blade while holding the Gatekeeper in a left handed grip and returned the favor in kind . He used the momentum of Thrud's attack to double the strength of his own shoulder bash .

She was too close to avoid the hit and the one which followed . The armor could prevent part of the damage, but Lith was much heavier and stronger than her, leaving Thrud in mid air long enough for a right uppercut to land .

Once again Arthan's Armor deflected the hit, but Lith's gauntlet's claws still accomplished their mission . Solus had enveloped herself in a gravity sheath strong enough to open a deep cut right above the Mad Queen's left eye .

It bled profusely, blinding her .

'It's a trap! The Constable was waiting for this moment to strike . ' Jirni's reputation was enough to make even Thrud afraid of her resourcefulness . The Mad Queen kept her only eye on Lith while she stabbed with surgical precision at her own blind spot, where Jirni was supposed to be .

Except she wasn't . After her roll, Jirni had dashed toward Manohar to snap him out of his childish tantrum .

"What the heck are you doing? Why aren't you helping?" She said while splashing potions and tonics on the two fallen Spellbreakers . They couldn't save their lives but could prolong them for a bit .

"A single Healer can't save both of them . " He replied .

"Even if it was possible, it would be pointless . We did our best and f . . . . " The word refused to roll off his tongue . "I don't have enough mana left to defeat her . Not with those goddamned artifacts supporting her . You are useless and he is too young . It's over . "

"No, it's not, you dimwit! Have you forgotten about the Clean Slate spell? It can disable her armor . " Jirni whispered .

"You think I didn't try?" He said while pointing at the numerous cuts on his Professor vest . "I need to touch her to activate the spell and she is too fast . My constructs can't transmit spells and the last time my real hands neared her, I almost lost them!"

"Listen carefully, man child!" Jirni snarled . "You prepare that damn spell and we'll do the rest . You'll know when to act . "

Meanwhile, Thrud's confusion was getting the better of her . The cut was too deep for first magic to heal it quickly and she had already used the healing spell she had at ready .

Arthan's Armor held another such spell, but once she used it, it would weaken the artifact's defensive abilities to the point the enemy's blade could seriously injure her . Not to mention that wasting such a powerful ability for a small cut sounded absurd .

Lith exploited her blind side to pile up more damage and weaken her with each hit she failed to block . The Armor prevented wounds from opening, but the blunt impact wore down her already dwindling stamina .

When Jirni returned, Thrud's enhanced senses informed her of the enemy's arrival .

The Mad Queen had no idea if it was Jirni, Manohar, or both . She Blinked to safety, putting her back against a wall . Lith saw her exit point and made sure to appear on her left side .

Thrud couldn't see and Jirni was too far to notice Lith's throat turning of a scaly black as he hurled a stream of blue flames .
