Chapter 22 - Fighting is Magic

Me and the other elements were in Canterlot for the weekend. We all had rooms in the castle. But the strange thing is that Celestia didn’t really give us that good of a reason to come to Canterlot. But due to the fact that the world isn’t at stake here, Twilight’s giving us a tour of the city. A few nobles were looking at me, recognizing me from when I got the Equestrian Medal of Valor.

Twilight already took us to see her parents; Night Light and Twilight Velvet. They of course thought that me and Twilight were a couple, which while Twilight denied it rapidly, I knew better and took a slower way to deny it, to make it seem like we were not together. ‘I’d rather be with Rainbow anyways, Rainbow is best pony.’

Next we were heading to the guard barracks to meet Shining Armor. When we got there, we saw Shining Armor training some guards rather rigorously. Though once Shining Armor saw Twilight, he gave them a break.

“Shining!” Twilight called out as she ran to her brother, giving him a hug.

“Hey Twily!” Shining Armor ruffled her mane up. “What are you doing in Canterlot?”

“Princess Celestia called us here on some business, so I thought I would show my friends around Canterlot.” Twilight gestured to all of us. Shining Armor locked eyes with me, and walked up to me.

“So you’re the great hero of Equestria? The one who outdid the guards during the attack on Canterlot?” Shining Armor asked accusingly.

“I don’t know about ‘great,’ but I was able to take down God, so you wouldn’t lose any more of your guards to him.” I replied.

“You made the guards look pathetic during that attack.”

“The guards aren’t trained or equipped to battle a Cosmic King, especially one like God.”

“Prove it. I challenge you to a duel. Right here, right now.”

“Duel to the death?”

“No, duel until the other gives up, or is unable to fight.”

“You’re on.” We walked over to the grassy area, heading to opposite sides of the ‘arena.’ I noticed the guards were gathered around, placing bets on us. A guard handed Shining Armor a wooden sword.

“What weapon are you going to choose?” Shining ask, pointing the sword at me... somehow. I pulled my staff out of my arm, extending it to it’s full length. I heard the guards laughing at my choice of weapon. Apparently, using a staff in a duel is considered a joke, due to how you ‘can’t make a lethal attack.’ These ponies are stupid.

A guard on the side called out to start the match. “FIGHT!”

Shining immediately charged at me, his sword aiming for my chest. From the look on his face, he was expecting a quick victory. But to everyone’s surprise, I quickly blocked the blow, using my staff. I bashed my staff into his head lightly, pushing him back.

Shining recovered, and charged again, trying to swipe at me. I jumped up and over him, landing on the opposite side of him. Shining quickly spun around, and would have hit me, if I didn’t block the blow again, and push him back.

“You attacked me three times. Time for my offensive.” I said, before running at him, and stopping in front of his shield he created. Shining barely had the time to smile, before I destroyed his shield with a punch. I heard surprised gasps as the pieces of the shield fell down. I whacked him on the side of the head with my staff, sending him flying into a pillar.

Before Shining could even recover, I was already in front of him, pushing him against the pillar, as my staff was pushed against his throat, cutting off his oxygen. After a few seconds of his rapidly losing oxygen, to the point where he was about to pass out, I removed my staff, putting it away as I walked back to my friends. “I won.”

I quickly dodged out of the way of a magic blast he fired, before sending a powerful burst of electricity into his horn, disabling it for a day or two. “I told you. I won. I got you to the point where you almost lost consciousness.” Shining Armor only growled, as he picked up his weapon, and charged at me again. ‘What is with him? Shining Armor doesn’t act like this.’ I quickly noticed how his eyes were glowing a shade of yellow. ‘He’s being mind controlled. And by the looks of the mind control, it’s a battle master controlling him. Guess I have to knock him out.’

I grabbed Shining’s sword as he swiped at me, before shattering the sword, and delivering a quick punch to Shining’s face. As he recovered, I ran forward, jumped above him, and onto his back. As he tried to kick me off, I charged up a large amount of electricity, before sending all the volts into Shining.

I watched him spasm for a few seconds, before he passed out, the mind control leaving him. I got off of him, before walking away. As I walked out of the ‘battlefield’ I noticed a lot of bits being traded. Before I got back to my friends, Celestia and Luna were right in front of me.

“Twas an excellent battle Connor.” Luna said.

“I agree. I think we should have a battle competition in the Canterlot arena.” Celestia surprisingly said. I noticed the both of their eyes flashed yellow, telling me that they were under a battle master’s spell. I would have attacked them then and there, but the resulting battle wouldn’t look that good, so I have to wait and battle them during the contest.

The next day (yesterday was a Friday), found me walking out to the stadium, which was filled with cheering crowds. We already did the preliminaries even earlier this morning, eliminating the weaker opponents. So far, the only people left in the fight are; the mane six (who are also mind controlled), an earth pony that resembles Bulk Biceps (named Mr. Fluffles), a minotaur named Jeffrey, a dragon named Carl, and me. But due to my fighting ability, instead of making it a normal competition, they’re having me fight everyone in separate rounds. ‘I guess the battle master really wants me to fight all of them. Probably to get stronger.’ And if I were to beat all of the contestants, I would have to battle Luna, and then Celestia.

After I entered the stadium, my opponent walked out. “Our current match is between the hero and Element of Courage Connor, and the Element of Loyalty Rainbow Dash! Who will win this match up?” The announcer is apparently the same guy from DBZ.




Author's Note:

Well, this is going to be another story arc. Sorry if the chapter is small, I just like to have cliffhangers at times. But don't worry, there will probably be a few matches per chapter.
