Law closed the distance between he and Kai in a mere moment, but he could see that the other was reacting more quickly than he had been previously. At the same time Law could see that Kai had been preparing his own assault, conjuring up another ball of flame, in his hand this time. He seemed to be feeding energy into it as at a constant rate, as it continued to grow .As Law swung through with his attack he could see that Kai had just barely managed to dodge it, the blade coming within inches of his skin, and that Kai's own attack had now grown immensely and had been fired in his direction. He was fairly close by this time, and he saw little room for dodging, and even if there were room he had too little time. Not sure exactly what would happen, he decided to try something new.
The green flames raged towards him at incredible speeds giving off a massive amount of heat. Concentrating only on his own body Law began using the abilities of his room to alter the state of his skin on a molecular level. This was nothing he'd ever attempted before and he had to think rapidly if he wanted to complete the effect in time to prevent himself catching on fire. His first train of though and main concern immediately was what could he actually change his skin into? He thought it over as quickly as he could under the circumstances, then with a stroke of insight came to his conclusion. He would become diamond.
Although he'd never manipulated his own body he'd done plenty of this kind of thing to random object plenty of times in the past, and it didn't turn out to be too much different. The only thing was that it felt slightly strange as his skin transformed. He could feel a strong tingling, the strangest sensation of all though was when an area had been completely transformed. It then lost all sense of feeling and it was almost as if he was watching someone or something else control his body. Before he had time to react further the flames engulfed him, roaring loudly as it scarred the landscape further.
Flames raged on all sides of him as Law looked down at his hands. He then checked over the various other parts of his body. He was completely engulfed, so he wasn't sure how well Kai could see him, but at the same time his speed would be moderately reduced, bringing him much closer to Kai's speed. A blitz would most likely not be his best option. With that fact in mind he kept his position, waiting to see what the other would do. Moments later the flames exploded around him, unleashing their energy in all directions. Had he been unprotected Law imagined he would have been severely burned. As he was now though, he felt little. A dull warmth, but that was all. The force knocked him around, likely damaging him in the process, but as he could feel no pain, at least if the damage was shallow enough, he took no notice.
Stepping out of the flames Law looked over towards his opponent and shot a quick smile his way. A brilliant gleam from his teeth would likely lead Kai to believe that he'd turned those to diamond as well, but in truth that wasn't the case. He was simply adamant about his dental hygiene. Moving at his new max speed without utilizing his shunpo Law moved towards Kai, this time making a downwards strike with all of his might which could prove lethal if Kai didn't block or dodge it. He suspected that the other wouldn't let his fun end so soon though. He would then launch into a flurry of blows, not more focused on offense than defense, as he thought himself completely impervious to any further injuries.
