"Well, we arent screwed if there are still possibilities, first we should investigate who's behind all of this, then we act." A lightbulb inside of Rai's head lit up, "something like that."
"I have a good idea of who is trying to let Apophis free. And I'd rather not fight that person, considering they're a god," Xenia says, shaking her head and pacing.
"Well, I'll fight him." Rai said, "I am an angel. I reckon I can fight most of your gods."
Xenia glances at him sharply, growling. "Just because my gods and those like me have nearly been forgotten does not mean that we're weak," she snaps, shaking her head. "Really, I can't believe you sometimes."
"Well I am an angel. They're known for being arrogant." Rai admitted, he paced around the room, "but let's get back to the topic. Angels don't exactly know you, so they don't know how to fight you. The only reason I know how to fight against you and your kind is because I'm very old... Maybe too old. Anyways you can fight the angels and I'll fight your's."
"Fine, then. But you'll only fight those of us that you absolutely must. Any that may be reasoned with will not be killed, but brought to me." Xenia crosses her arms, glaring at him. "Understand?"
"Yeah," Rai smiled, "I do good for capturing. As for the angels... Well I don't personally care if you kill any of them. By the way if you see an angel with a red eyepatch, blue hair and red armor don't hesitate to fight him... Although he is really strong."
"I didn't live thousands of years because I'm weak," Xenia points out. "If I find that you've caused any unneccesary harm to my kind, expect that you will be tortured to within an inch of your life."
"I think we're on equal terms. We'd be at a tie if we fought." Rai said, "and that guy I mentioned, you don't know him. Even I almost can't stand up to him. He'll use whatever he can to get what he wants. And currently, it's starting the apocalypse."
"I was one of three Guardians to fight Apophis and seal him away. I was trapped with him for over 200 years. I think I'll be perfectly fine," Xenia says, shrugging slightly. "It's almost funny how you doubt someone older than you."
"It's funny how you judge some one when you haven't even met him..." Rai muttered darkly. "Just because you've fought Apophis doesn't mean that he's instantly weaker."
"You know nothing, Raizel. Nothing," Xenia practically spat.
"What is nothing?" Rai paced around, "is it the dense forest? The lonely naive boy? The star filled sky?" Rai turned towards Xenia, "we all know nothing! We all are stupid! Yes including all of our gods! It doesn't matter if it's your gods or my god! I'm just trying to save this world."
