The Pirate’s New Gifts
The Pirate was on his back in the sand, the dire situation resulting from dodging Petunia's attacks. He still had his blade, but Petunia's two diamond arms were overwhelming. He held back one diamond arm with his sword while she closed in with her other arm.
Cerissa sent the new sword gently to the Pirate via a floating spell. The sword landed in the Pirate's hand just in time for him to protect himself from being stabbed by Petunia's second diamond blade. Taking advantage of Petunia's shocked expression and distraction, he slid under his foe and lept to his feet, facing her once again as she turned around.
"So you have a new toy, huh?" Petunia mocked. "Big deal! Do you even know how to fight with two swords at once?"
"This will be a first for me honestly, but guess it's learn on the fly or die!" The Pirate laughed, both swords at the ready.
"Pirate, that sword was created from copies of Rick, Dirk and Doug's blades!" Cerissa called out. "That makes it three times as strong, and it also has the ability to light up into a laser sword!"
"Nice, I've always wanted one of these!" The Pirate said happily. "Thank you all for this gift. I'll take it for a test run right now!"
The Pirate lit up his weapon into a laser sword, and charged at Petunia. He couldn't understand how, but swinging two swords in combat felt perfectly natural to him. He wondered if the pirate that had given him his powers had dual wielded swords before, and if that experience somehow became built into his Pirate transformation's abilities. Regardless, he was thankful to be able to take the offensive with his new weapon and skills.
Despite the power of the Pirate's new weapon and innate talent for dual wielding, Petunia's diamond arms remained intact. She blocked the barrage of strikes, even fending off the laser sword's power.
