Surprised, the champion stumbled and went down on the injured knee. The arena crowd fell silent. No one had ever wounded the champion. The young hero saw that he had gained a clear advantage for the first time in the struggle and pressed forward. The champion forced himself to his feet and suffered a new blow from the young hero. His weapon slashed across the champion's chest at a sharp angle. It cut a deep gash through the armor plating, perforating the skin beneath. Then the young hero spun his blade and repeated the motion from the opposite side, intending to inflict a symmetrical cut.
Staggering forward, the champion ignored his blood gushing through his damaged armor. The grayish fluid flowed from his wounds in a flood and fought evaporation in the intense heat. As the champion attempted to clear his head, the young hero attacked once more. The champion tried to block the young hero's blow, but his strength failed him. The young hero's strike landed solidly against the champion's helmet. The sharp crack of snapping bone resonated throughout the coliseum. The champion dropped his sword and fell in a bloody heap beside the weapon.
The arena crowd burst into a roar! They had a new champion and proudly voiced their unabashed approval of the young hero's new status. Amid the jubilee came a great ground quake that shook the stadium. The Amphitheatre's massive walls crumbled, engulfing the spectators in enormous plumes of dust and debris. A chasm opened around the young hero, leaving him perched upon a precipice in the center as the remnants of the arena fell into the widening crevasse. When the rumbling of the ground subsided and the dust clouds dissipated, a beautiful woman appeared. She hovered in mid-air, floating above the abyss that consumed the Amphitheatre and its occupants. In her presence, the sun's luminosity seemed to drop a full magnitude, drawing the young hero's eye to her well toned, curvaceous form. She was rimmed by a bright, but not blinding, radiance that appeared to originate directly from her stunning, mahogany complexion. "Ja Rel Sunstormer," she called.
At that, the young hero turned to her, and had the arena crowd been still extant, it would have been able to see his face for the first time. The beautiful woman eyed the young hero, Ja Rel, closely, as if seeing him for the first time, before continuing, "You are needed."
