ENTER THE EYE OF THE STORM
Artist: FalKKonE - Song: Fight to the Finish!
Again, again, and again, the flow of power and the control that he had of it was something that continued to spur more confidence into Henrex as their blades clashed, with Stefan mimicking his Tulpa and causing their wills to collide as well. But, with the difference in strength, it wasn't long before Henrex was being pushed back.
Meanwhile, through all of this, he briefly sawthe black mist that was covering the area in the corner of his eye, but, unwilling to divert his focus, he turned his gaze back to Stefan. With this spur in confidence, Henrex began to push back as he began to tap into more and more of his strength in order to keep himself from being crushed.
Taking a glance up at the pseudo-Tulpa that Stefan had made, he could see that the formation of it was intent on keeping his Tulpa -- and by extension, him -- firmly planted in place, further indicated by the sudden amount of energy that was gathering on the edge of his sword.
Thus, instead of trying to wrestle his Tulpa free, he allowed the construct to dissipate, allowing himself to break free, step backward, and summon his Tulpa again in order to gain at least some distance and lessen his wounds. This explosion of energy, however, proved his efforts to be ultimately pointless as he too was engulfed in the dust and heat, singing and cutting him all across his body and sent flying backward.
With such a powerful explosion and Henrex's underwhelming physical durability, it wasn't hard for this explosion to deal quite the extensive amount of damage. Blood poured from all forms of cuts and gashes across his body, bones creaked and snapped, and his body fell victim to several second and third-degree burns. Through his own will and determination, Henrex righted himself in the air and landed on his feet and held an arm out, causing a lightning bolt to manifest on his palm.
His regeneration immediately started on repairing the damage, and Henrex wasted no time as he held up the bolt of lightning as a ring of water orbs spun to life around his wrist, moving up his arm and hand to circle the bolt. Hurling it forward, the water orbs merged together to form a massive whirlwind of water, tinged with electricity as it flew towards Stefan.
Not only being made more deadly with the mix of lightning as to increase any damage taken, but the high-pressure waters would be infused with Henrex's will, allowing him to increase the quality of his attack. Furthermore, it would be easy to notice the mass difference in destructive potential that this attack had, compared to the previous, as it now utilized Henrex's absolute, maximum power.
He wasn't just fighting to survive -- he was fighting to win.
