Chapter thirty three- The First Servant to Fall

"Quite a noisy night, isn't it?" Noah poured himself a glass of champagne. He turned to the large window across the apartment living room, admiring the view through the bubbly golden liquid. He looked to his pink haired master, who was busy on the phone. The mage smiled and laughed, answering the person with a heartfelt, 'I'm glad'. A few moments later he said his goodbyes and hung up. Rider walked over, "How's she doing?"

Muu sighed, the happiness in his tone fading somewhat as he was reminded of their reality, "She's doing better, actually."

Rider nodded once, "That's good to hear."

"So," Muu changed the subject, "what's going on out there?"

"It seems to be Berserker and Lancer versus Assassin and Archer. I don't believe it's necessary we intervene." Rider reported, becoming serious again.

"Hm..." Muu leaned back in the leather computer chair he was sitting on behind his desk. "So it's that Hakuryuu kid from before, right? And Al-Thamen's kid...Judar, was it?"

"Yes."

"Poor kids... They shouldn't be a part of something like this. Saber's master, Alibaba, either."

"Everything about this war is preposterous," Noah spoke bitterly.

"Would you abandon it if you could?"

"Of course. It's not in my nature to fight like this."

"You seem to enjoy it, though," Muu raised his head and looked over to the servant. "Like in your fight with Caster and Archer not too long ago."

"I don't have much of a choice, do I?" Rider shrugged, "I do enjoy the competition, but bloody slaughter is against my ways..." He looked back to the window and shook his head, "Tonight will be a decisive event...I'm sure of it."

As Hyde fought Gilgamesh and Lancer fought Assassin, Hakuryuu, Judar, and Jekyll were devising a plan to kill either Archer or Assassin, and what to do about Hyde.

"I think the only way to get Berserker back to normal is to kill Assassin," Hakuryuu spoke, hand on his chin as he thought.

"But...I don't want to be back with him." Jekyll spoke. "I'm finally free of him."

"Too bad," Judar said, hands on his hips. "We don't have an option. Unless you plan on dying with him tonight and leaving me servantless, which is not happening."

Hakuryuu nodded a bit, "That is another option. There's probably time to summon another Berserker if yours dies."

"H-Hey, you're joking, right?" Jekyll stammered. "I just want..."

"C'mon, Jekyll! Get your shit together already." Judar grew angry, raising his voice. "This isn't about you. You're just here to fight for me. Don't want to? Don't. You're replaceable. There are tons of psychos out there fit to take your place."

"I-I can't fight on my own..."

"Have you ever tried?" Hakuryuu spoke in a much nicer tone.

"Well, no..." Jekyll admitted.

"Then come on! Show us what you got!" Judar urged him.

"I think I'd be more suited for support magic," Jekyll spoke. He seemed more confident now, his wounds forgotten.

"Then Judar and I will lead the attack, you stay back and support us," Hakuryuu decided.

"Who're we going after?" Judar asked.
