NGAYON ang araw kung kailan haharapin ng Pantheras ang kailangan harapin para sa sinusungkit nilang titulo na underground rulers. 

They wanted the title for themselves because having that title means they will be feared by those people from the underground such as members of macfia organizations, assassins and yakuza or those people who are involved in underground businesses.

Nervousness is visible on Hera's face while the three are keeping their pokerface. Isa isa nilang dapat patunayan sa mga manonood na karapat dapat silang maging bagong underground rulers. Even their parents are present, their parents' friends and also some of their close friends.

"I'm really against you risking your life for this, Hera. Pwede ka nilang patayin sa gitna ng laban! Kailangan mo ba talagang gawin 'to?" nag aalalang sabi ni Zach.

Hera smiled at him even though she's also nervous. "Unggoy naman. Wala ka bang tiwala sa bebe mo? Kaya kong lumampaso ng ilang dosenang mga mamaw! Hera lang sakalam!"

"But, Queen... can you just back out? Aatakihin ako sa nerbyos knowing you can be dead just by stepping into that circle of death."

They call the arena Circle of Death. Pabilog kasi ito at habang nasa loob ka ng bilog na yon, pwedeng pwede kang mamatay sa kamay ng makakalaban mo.

"Masyado ka namang nerbyoso. Pero sige, kapag ako na-deads sa loob mumultuhin ko aagaw sa'yo."

Sumama ang mukha ni Zach at kunot na kunot ang noo. "Zaina Hera, you're not gonna die."

"Joke lang! Seryoso mo naman!" Hindi sumagot si Zach at nag iwas lang ng tingin at hindi pinansin si Hera. "Hey! Joke lang kasi!"

"That wasn't a good joke."

Niyakap niya si Zach patagilid pero hindi pa rin ito tumitingin sa kaniya. Then after hugging, she kissed his cheeks.

"Sorry na. Love you!" paglalambing ni Hera.

"I love you too," Zach answered without giving Hera a look. 

Iniba ni Hera ang pwesto nila. She made Zach looked at her. She hold Zach's both cheeks while staring straight into his eyes.

"I'll come back alive. Promise ko yan. Remember, magpapakasal pa tayo," then Hera winked.

Sa kabilang banda naman, kasama ni Hazielle si Keiji. Hazielle was busy wiping her katanas with a cloth while Keiji was just watching her. Hindi niya maiwasang hindi mag alala para kay Hazielle. 

Gusto niya itong pigilan pero may tiwala siya sa kakayahan nito at ayaw niyang ipilit na huwag itong lumaban ngayon. Gusto niyang gawin ni Hazielle ang kung ano mang nanaisin at susuportahan niya ito sa abot ng makakaya niya. He will never leave Hazielle alone, that's a promise he made to himself when he and Hazielle became official.

"Staring for too long is rude, you know." Nabalik si Keiji sa realidad nang magsalita si Hazielle.

"Just appreaciatingmy girl's beautiful face. Nothing's wrong with that."

"Alam mo, ikaw, habang patagal nang patagal nahahawa ka na sa ka-corny-han ni Zach."

Ngumiti naman siya. "Sa'yo lang naman ako corny. Buti hindi sa iba."

Nandilim panandalian ang mukha ni Hazielle. "Subukan mong gawin sa iba," Hazielle threw one of her katanas and that hit one of a frame inside the room they're in right now. Keiji paled. 

"Red naman, di mabiro. Ikaw lang love ko. Kahit ang dami kong kaagaw sa'yo."

"Kaagaw?" Hazielle asked.
