As the Keeper Team drew nearer to the volcano, they had their rivalry plans sorted out. Now they just had to get there. They arrived at the foot of the volcano.
"Come on." Said Johnny trying to run up it, but he failed and slipped back down.
"It's too steep you moron!" Said Rikoryu.
"They've been expecting us guys." Said Archie walking in. The others followed.
There were 7 pathways, each one said a name of a different Shadow Army member.
"This is where we split up," Said Archie, "The damage of these duels is real. Your bodies might not make it through your duel, but your hearts, your pure souls will be with us within our souls, and we'll never forget you."
"WILL YOU GET OFF ME YOU CRYBABY!" Said Rikoryu hitting him off.
"DON'T INSULT MY EMOTIONS!" Yelled Rikoryu.
Everyone gave a hug goodbye to everyone else, and walked down the path to their enemy.
Zoe walked through a dark tunnel, which was pitch-black. She saw light coming from the end, and emerged into a duel arena. The walls were red hot rock, and the duel arena was resting on a transparent floor, and underneath it, was the magma, swishing up and down. That tunnel led her down into the earth's mantle.
Zoe looked at her.
"Let's have our duel. And I thought that the convection currents beneath us would spice it up a bit. There's a life point counter over there, and if one of our life points reaches 0, the panel beneath the loser will open up, and the loser will fall down 50 miles and land in the convection currents!" Said Sarah.
"So I have to risk my life for the whole of the planet, that's a risk I'm willing to take."
"Let's duel then!" Said Sarah.
They both put their Duel Disks on and went onto the arena.
A small red robot emerged from the card that Sarah slapped onto her Duel Disk. It had 1600 ATK and 400 DEF.
As another card is slapped on the disk, it's hologram emerges and it's a spacecraft with 2 panels on the sides and a strange sword-thing coming out the front. It has 600 ATK and 200 DEF.
"I end my turn!"
Almost immediately, a yellow wasp with leaves as wings, with 1800 ATK and 100 DEF landed on the field.
"I'll end my turn by placing a card facedown."
The red robot came out again.
"Now I'll tribute my 2 monsters to summon my Ally of Justice - Doomfire Lord!"
A huge creature, about 30 ft tall comes onto the field. It has 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF.
"NOT SO FAST! I activate Natural Negator, when you attack while I control a Naturia monster I negate it!"
A green barrier went around the Naturia, and the attack stopped.
A small beetroot came out the ground. It has 1000 ATK and 700 DEF.
The Cosmos Beet shrank a bit.
The Cosmos Beet turned into a green ring which wrapped around the wasp, and absorbed it's colour leaving behind an orange outline. It then turned into 4 stars, and a beam shot through them, and a green tiger came out.
The tiger had tree trunks as arms, it's ATK was 2200 and it's DEF was 1700.
"Now I'll activate the Naturia Forest field Spell card!"
The volcano background turned into a forest.
"It makes the ATK of my Naturia Beast go straight up to 4400! ATTACK!"
"HA HA HA!" Sarah laughed.
"What?" Asked Zoe confused.
The DoomFire Lord smashed, and the huge skull creature returned.
"Also, the ATK and DEF of the monster I summoned becomes the total ATK and DEF of all monsters I sent to the Grave! That means it has 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF!"
Zoe gasped. Her field spell was destroyed now that her turn is over, and her monster's ATK was back to 2200. She had no other cards to use. She was trapped.
