*Nyima*

I stared at Sarah. Adela had given the medics the elixir she had been working on. While it strengthened her life-force, she still hadn't woken up.

"Nyima," Lei said, tapping my shoulder. "Our matches are about to start."

"Did my brother win?" Fai-Jie asked.

"It seemed like he was going to, but then he made a mistake, costing him the match."

She rubbed her chin. "A mistake? That does seem like him. But is he safe?"

"Yeah," Lei said. "His opponent actually caught him before he slammed into the barrier."

Fai gasped. "An H.E.H. helped someone who isn't one of them... how odd."

"Seems there are some good people there too," Lei responded, grinning.

My indicolite eyes shifted back to the unconscious Sarah. "If only Aida had been one of those people."

"Nyima, don't lose," Lei said, staring at me straight in my eyes.

My hand wrapped around my right arm. "Don't worry, I don't plan to end up like her. Though I don't doubt that my opponent wants to hurt me as much as Aida hurt Sarah."

"Yeah, that's why I'm telling you to be careful. I don't want to see you on the other side of this wall."

Warmth rushed through my head. "T-thanks for caring, Lei."

A hearty laugh filled the hall. "No need to thank me. We're friends. We got to care for each other."

My hand touched the center of his chest. "In that case you should rely on others when in need. If not me and the others then at least your siblings. I don't want to see you hurt by those folks, nor lose yourself to the darkness."

His turquoise eyes peered at the blue linoleum floor. "I don't want to depend too much on them. I won't be able to grow with I continue to do so."

"You seem independent enough as it is."

"Indeed," Adela called out. "A young tree sometimes needs supports to protect it from the fierce winds."

Lei snickered. "But the wind is my friend."

A sigh escaped my lips. "You know what she means."

He nodded. "Yeah, I do. But there is a lone tree at my place that has managed to grow upright and sturdy without supports." A grin formed. "I wish to be like that one!"

"Well, not all trees can be like that one. A lot of them need either supports or need to be around other trees to shield them," Adela said.

"Hmm, I guess I am like those ones, considering Yen and Kun kept me from getting into too much trouble."

"Keyword is 'too much'," I retorted, snickering. "Anyway, I'm off to my match."

"Wait, I'm coming with you," Lei said.

"Same," Yen said.

The triplet snuck a glance at their brother.

"Go on ahead, I'm staying here," he responded, his eyes unmoving from the slumbering princess.

"Kun..." Lei said.

"Maybe she needs a kiss," Yen said, grinning.

The middle triplet's face flushed. "Uh..."

"Don't worry, she'll wake up eventually," Lei said. "I was out for several days after the incident with the abysmal..."

His brother's lips crested upward. "Yeah..."

Nahimana teleported the three of us back to the stadium. Shockingly, the battlefield at the center remained the same as it was during Sarah's battle.

"Wahkan has a minute to arrive or they'll be disqualified," the announcer said.

"Wait, we're here!" Lei yelled, raising a hand into the air.

Iah laughed.

"About time you arrive," my opponent snapped.

A grin covered my face. "Well, not like you're anyone important."

"Why you..."

"Though I am," Iah said, winking.

Turning my back to him, I scoffed. "I don't care that you're a prince."

He snickered. "I guess not. So, how is Sarah doing? Has her condition stabilized?"

"Yeah," Yen said. "Kun and the others are still watching over her."

"That's great news!"

"Who is this Sarah to you?" his ex asked, narrowing her eyes at him.

"She's

led into fists. "Father though has been busy... he even ignored my request to get payback on Iah..."

"It has to be because he realizes that it would do nothing but make Iah hate you more. Iah doesn't like clingy women. Which is rather funny as he's rather clingy himself..."

"Am not!" Iah yelled.

"Oh shut up! Who asked you to speak?" I snapped.

I sighed. "Let's return to our match, but this time try to have some more self-respect. Like you said, you're strong. Use that power for something other than to hurt women your ex-boyfriend is close with."

"Just answer me this, honestly... Do you really not like Iah? As a woman loves a man?"

My ears grew warm. "I... I'm in love with someone else," I whispered.

Cìjī's face beamed. "I see. The look in your eyes tells me you speak the truth." She snickered. "I take it that boy is the one standing beside Iah?"

My blue eyes shifted toward Lei. The warmth spread across my body. "Let's carry on with our match."

She smiled and collapsed to her knees. "It's already over... the only thing driving me was my rage, but now it's gone..."

I caught her before she landed face first against the thick mud underfoot.

"The winner is Nyima Taiyang! That makes one victory for Wahkan! The next match might very well determine which national team advances to the next round."

"Let me help you," I said, putting an arm around Cìjī's waist.

"T-thanks. I... I am sorry for calling you a witch and all those other crude words." Tears slid down her face. "I will consider what you said and try to move on."

"That's gre..." The battlefield began to move strangely. It felt as if I had just walked a long journey through the desert.

Cìjī entire weight nearly pulled me down to the mud as she passed out.

"Hey this... a bad time too..." I clasped my head with my free hand. "Faint..." Something pressed against my head.

"Go and rest. I'll take her from your arms." It was Iah. He was smiling, but it seemed forced. Was he sad?

H-he hadn't heard what I said about who I liked, right?

"I'll take care of her," Orichalcum said, grabbing Iah's ex. "Your match will begin soon."

The field behind me was slowly transforming into a canyon.

My eyes darted toward Lei who had a large smile on his face.

"It's time for our rematch!" Lei said, tapping the prince's shoulder.

Iah turned away from him. "Yeah... it is... Though the result will be the same."
