A New Blade Forged
"We won't interfere with The Pirate's fight, this is something Mitch needs to settle with Petunia." Cerissa advised. "However, he won't be able to avoid those two diamond arms of hers with one blade."
"So are we going to provide another blade for him?" Essie asked.
"Exactly!" Cerissa said happily.
"Tam gave my helmet an upgrade that I could use to get another sword sent here by requesting it by thought." Rick suggested. "But it can take at least five minutes to arrive, and I don't know if Mitch can hold out that long."
"Essie and I will combine our magic to make a new sword for him instead." Cerissa replied. "We can only use so much magic right now due to our memory losses, but if we use our abilities together, we will each have some energy left over in case we have to fight Petunia too. Do you know a copy spell Essie?"
"Yes, I do!" Essie said enthusiastically. "Tell me what you need me to do!"
"First, I will need help from you three." Cerissa told Rick, Doug, and Dirk. "Please summon your swords and stick them in the sand."
Rick, Doug, and Dirk made their swords appear in their hands, then they thrust the swords into the sand.
"Alright Essie, now make copies of the three swords."
Essie waved her hand over the swords, and three duplicate swords appeared in front of each of the originals.
"Thank you Essie. Now gentlemen, you may take your swords back."
Rick, Doug, and Dirk retrieved their swords and made them disappear again by thought.
"Thank you friends. Now it's my turn!"
Cerissa waved her hand over the three new swords, and the swords floated into the air. Two of the swords flew rapidly into the third one, absorbing into it. The lone sword shone majestically in the sky, distracting The Pirate and Petunia from their fight.
"This should even the odds." Cerissa said confidently. "Pirate, catch!"
