Ena was standing at the edge of the hall, the five angels standing in formation behind her, all tense, fixated on the figures standing on the other side of the hall and facing them.

Ena threw her head back then, laughing out loud as if she found something terribly amusing.

Opposite her Freya narrowed her eyes, baring her teeth in anger.

Ena stepped forward, and Freya did the same.

The two met in the centre of the hall, both moving away from the safety of the figures that would protect them.

Silence rang in the vast hall, as the two maidens regarded each other, maintaining a distance between them. Ena was a head taller than Freya, her skinny frame and sunken eyes made her look sick, made her look weak, almost as if a firm wind could push her aside and break her.

On the other hand, Freya looked strong. About twenty three in age, she was far older than Ena. Her short blonde hair was swept back. The gold bar around her neck and each of her wrists glinted in the beam of sunlight, which shone down upon them through the conical glass tower from above. Around her neck where two metallic snakes intertwined, their tails formed a downwards point like that of a spear.

She looked normal compared to Ena, who some might have believed wasn't even human, who was unnaturally tall with very long limbs, fingers and toes.

Freya untied the black shawl from around her waist, throwing it aside. Her long purple skirt swayed in a light breeze.

She crossed her arms, lifting her chin high and considered her.

Ena smiled widely, tilting her head, allowing her long pale green hair fall over her face.

Behind her, the five angels stared unblinking. The edges of Jaspin's eyes twitched, and Gael balled his fists.

'We meet' Freya began. 'At last.'

'At last' Ena echoed. She hunched her shoulders, giggling into her hands, an action that seemed to greatly irritate Freya.

'There is no backing down' Freya spoke to Ena firmly. 'Today, one of us will die.'

'It will be you' Ena smiled, in a manner that seemed almost to be friendly; as if she was talking to someone she knew well, and had loved for most of her life. But Freya did not react the same.

'I won't let you escape' Freya hissed. 'You are all going to die here.'

'Is that right?'

'My soldiers have this temple surrounded' Freya informed Ena casually. 'I will kill you. And they will your angels.'

At the back of the hall, Jaspin and Lilith shared a glance.

'We are surrounded' Jaspin whispered to her. 'I knew she would do this.'

Lilith stared at Jaspin wide eyed, before turning back to the maidens before them.

'I have brought you here' Freya spoke aloud, addressing all of them. 'I have brought you all here, and here is where you will die!'

Ena giggled again.

F

reya flicked her long skirt back, taking a sideways stance to Ena.

Freya walked slowly to the side, her attention sliding away from Ena, who followed her closely with her eyes, never looking away.

Freya suddenly whipped her hand up, shooting a spell without warning towards Ena, who cast her hand up, deflecting the attacking magic in the very last moment, and doing so with a smile upon her face.

Behind Ena the angels tensed suddenly, staring wide eyed, muscles knotted, fists balled. They all let out the breath they had been holding. They continued to watch, waiting for the next thing that would happen. One of them would die, on the agreement that no others would die on their behalf, no others would be harmed.

Freya stopped walking suddenly, turning to face Ena again.

For a moment nothing happened. And then Ena charged for Freya, moving at impossible speeds and swiping at her. Freya threw her head back, leaping away quickly to avoid as the magic slashed through the air, aimed at her throat.

Ena lunged for her, again and again. Freya dodged these next attacks, before retaliating. She cast her hand out, fingers splayed as a bright red light exploded before their eyes.

The angels and the holy men on the other end of the hall all shielded their eyes. When the light faded, they saw that Ena was gone.

For a few seconds they all glanced about in search of her. And then she suddenly appeared, hovering in the air above all of them. Ena giggled again, smiling warmly down at Freya on the ground.

'That was a close one' Ena said.

The muscles in Freya's face twitched, and her eyes burned. She turned to face Ena. A wind picked up around her, lifting her hair and clothes as she began to rise in the air. Her feet left the ground, and she rose, coming to Ena's level before her.

Lilith watched in awe, never having seen such magic before. Her breath was caught in her throat.

There were a series of loud bangs and flashes of light. Ena and Freya moved quickly, doing so so fast that the mind could not process what was happening. There was an almighty crash, and glass and rubble and dust fell from the ceiling.

The maidens appeared on the floor again, charging for each other. There was a stream of blood, but none could see from whom it had come from. Ena threw her hands to the floor then, and the very stone itself warped, forming its shape into a spear point and shooting towards Freya. But Freya turned out of the way just in time, throwing her hands to the side and breaking the stone point that had frozen now, and causing it to crumble into many tiny pieces. Ena vanished again as Freya made to strike her. Freya was suddenly thrown to the wall, held back by Ena's magic as she suddenly appeared before her, holding her there.
