TDG- And the Skies were red- P2

The guards jumped at her, but she dodged out of their way, which seemed a good idea at the time but obviously wasn't when she realised she had no weapons on her. It was more like a game of Cat and Mouse rather than an actual fight, but at least she was buying some time.

With her improved reflexes it was a lot easier to outrun the guards and mock them, while her parents were freeing Lucas. She managed to punch one of the guards and steal his sword before the other ones got to her, but had no idea how to use it.

That's when Dante jumped in. He started incinerating everything around him, careful though not to burn the innocent. It was a total chaos, but more guards started coming out if nowhere, circling the Dragon. He tried to burn them too, but before his fire could even touch them, something made it vanish into thin air. The knights threw chains and ropes at Dante, pinning him to the ground as he struggled to get free and shrieked. Christine watched in horror as they were losing the fight and her dragon was being captured. But that's when it happened.

She could feel the air around her become hotter and hotter, and she saw that the others could feel it too. Then she felt a stabbing pain in her back like something was sprouting out of there, but she somehow knew what it was. From her back began growing a pain of wings, as red as Dante's, also not quite as big as his. They were massive, though, and she was wondering how she was still able to keep her balance, considering how heavy they were.

She tried discovering how they functioned, and was grateful the guards were too stunned about what just happened to remember their purpose. By the time she was done figuring them out, the enemies had grown out of their astonishment and began launching themselves at her. Although she was already high in the air when they reached her.

Dante made a strange sound that sounded like half a laugh and a choke and puffs of smoke started coming out of his nose. Christine made some strange symbols with her hands and fire started coming out of them, as powerful as her Dragon's. Controlling them was hard, but she somehow knew what she was doing, burning the ropes pinning the Dragon to the ground like she's been doing it her whole life.

But suddenly a beam of green light shot out of nowhere, hitting Christine right between the shoulder blades, and she would have fallen to her room if Lucas hadn't cought her. The girl was barely breathing and her back was smoking, a translucent substance slowly travelling from her wound to the rest of the body. The one who did that finally showed himself, but his face couldn't be seen because of the hood of the robe he was wearing.

When Lucas reached Dante, the Dragon snarled at him, but then recognized the boy and let him climb onto his back, still holding Christine. Even though they had come there to save them, this time the girl seemed to be the one who needed to be saved.
