((It's pretty short, but that's intended to lead up to the battle. Hope you like it! Part 2
A few minutes later, they had regained consciousness. The gas was weak, but effective on a short term. The prisoners were silent, they continued to listen at the cheers coming from the Arena spectators. Jade saw Nervaun staring at the ground below him. He was terrified.
Suddenly, a small stroke of light filled the area outside of the cell. A door at the end of the hallway was opened, the shadow of a Goblin, Ogre and Human visible on the wall. The Human was brutally pushed in a cage at the end of the room.
Kazzle Battlewrench moved in front of the cell door and grinned – it was a cunning and evil grin. ‘Good news’, he said to Nervaun, ‘She’s dead! Ha!’ He laughed as he walked away, and his chuckles could be heard right up to the moment he closed the main prison door.
Jade looked at the Hunter. He hadn’t moved or said anything, but his blue eyes had turned red from fury. Jade and the other prisoners remained silent for a few more moments. The new Human prisoner was constantly yelling to be released.
Suddenly, Nevraun’s arms glowed with a black Shadow energy. His fur disappeared and was replaced by the powers of the void. He stood up and punched at the cell door, immediately breaking it and sucking up its power. He did the same for Krahnn and Saldrius. He walked towards the main prison door and said; ‘I will show all of you how a Grimtotem takes revenge’.
Jade joined with Saldrius and followed Grimtotem along with Mec’lan and Krahnn, all the while speaking no words. When they passed the Human’s cell, he begged for them to release him. ‘Hey!’, he said, ‘Let me out of here! Please!’ At first, the group ignored him, until he spoke the magic words; ‘I’ll help you kill the Goblin!’
Nervaun stopped, stood still for a moment, then turned around and tore the Human’s cell door apart. ‘Thanks’, the latter replied, ‘My name’s Jalen Halmeck, I’m a caster’.
The group barely listened to him and headed for the end of the hallway. The other cages were empty. Mec’lan turned to Jalen and asked; ‘What kind of caster, mon?’.
‘A strong one, that’s all you need to know.’, Jalen replied.
Nervaun destroyed the main the main prison door and walked outside, were supposed freedom waited. His new allies followed him and looked in awe at what they saw. They should have known this.
The spectators cheered as Kazzle Battlewrench’s voice magically boomed throughout the Gamewheel Arena; ‘Everyone, please welcome our newest gladiators!’
