Virgo was scared out of his mind and tired of fighting, he felt weak from all the blood loss but yet he was still alive, why?
He had given up hope that anyone would come for him until the queen dragged him away from his daily torture and took him to some safe house that the others had stayed at. He didn't want them coming back but he wanted to be saved so badly, he couldn't do this any longer and he wished they would hurry up. He just wanted to be in safe arms again, he wanted to be back at the flying ship with the others. Those memories had been the best memories of his life. Why couldn't things just go back to that?
" Ready?" Asked the wolf who was sharpening his knife.
" For what?"
" You're friends will come for you, and when they do we'll capture them just as we have with Leo and Sagittarius," he said with a wicked grin. Virgo felt all the color drain out of his face. They had Leo. He had failed to protect the person he loved more than anyone, more than anything.
" Please, let him go, you can have me! Why do you need all of us!?" Shouted Virgo.
" Because, without all of you it'll never work," he responded just as the queen walked in.
Virgo didn't understand what the wolf was talking about but they both stopped talking immediately as the queen walked in, she smiled as she saw Virgo, he scowled at her, he had always wondered what was under that hood, what her other facial features beside her mouth looked like, how terrifying was she? She had two guards bringing in huge machines that looked terrifying.
" I hate you," said Virgo as the queen grabbed a scalpel, she grinned.
" Good, and now time to extract you're powers-
Just then the door burst open and Sagittarius and Leo stood there breathless apparently.
" S-stop, oh shit can we take a quick break?" Asked Sagittarius who leaned against the door trying to catch his breath but also raced in and Virgo suddenly filled with hope, he was hung up in the middle of the room and had no way of helping them but he believed in Leo. If anyone could help him it was Leo.
Virgo smiled weakly but the queen suddenly brought out her sword, none of the zodiacs had ever fought her in combat but here she was challenging Leo. Thankfully the other guards had already left and Sagittarius only had the wolf to fight off. But the wolf was so powerful and they all knew that.
" Nice stitches boy, I heard you were almost turned into a hideous creature," said the wolf as they circled, Virgo meanwhile tried to untie the ropes on him but it wasn't working.
The queen had tossed Leo a sword and the battle between the two had begun, Virgo knew that Leo wasn't cut out for sword fighting, that was Virgo's strength but Leo fended the queen off well making Virgo proud.
Virgo grabbed the scalpel on the table and tried cutting the rope, it was working but not as quickly as Virgo would have liked.
A minute later the wolf pounced on Sagittarius's who quickly blocked using his sword, magic still wasn't working, Virgo wasn't sure where he had gotten the weapon but Sagittarius's blade was magnificent.
The queen meanwhile had knocked the sword out of Leo's hand and was backing him up against the wall, Virgo was trying to cut the rope so fast that he was sure his hands were gonna fall off.
The queen was getting closer to Leo and Virgo couldn't let that happen, he had to save Leo.
Virgo dropped the ropes he had cut and picked up the fallen sword blocking the attack so quick that the queen stumbled back. Leo was still against the wall and Virgo began to battle the queen. The queen was much too good for Virgo but he held her off for a few minutes before Sagittarius let out a blast of power that shook the whole safe house, or uh safe tree. Lightning blasted around hitting the queen and the wolf square in the chest.
