(I do not own the Beyblade characters in any way. I wish I did though! No...
I'm just a big fan! I do, however own Jayde Ryoko. I hope you enjoy my
story! Please rate it if you have time!)
I've only got one review!?! How disappointing. Oh well, I suppose I'll
continue since that one reviewer requested it. Sorry if it takes a while in
between, but I've been busy.
Chapter 6: Battle
Jayde met her opponent on the shores. She looked at him in the eye. "I
guess we battle. You ready." Her green eyes glinted as she pulled out her
blade. "Totally." He revealed Driger. "But just a fair warning I'm not
going to be easy to beat." "I expect no sympathy from anyone." She
answered. Ray detected a small hint of scorn in her voice. But he thought
no more of it.
As they let their blades fall into the dish, Jayde called the first attack.
"Go Kantora!" Her blade became a blur as it repeatedly attacked the other.
Its swift movements were almost impossible to detect with the naked eye.
On the sidelines, the Bladebreakers watched intently.
"I don't believe it!" Chief exclaimed. "Her rotation speed is off the
charts! It's the fastest I've ever seen!" "Don't worry!" Tyson punched his
fist into his other hand. "Ray will bring one home for the team!" "Go Ray
Go!" Max and Hilary cheered. Hilary had brought her yellow pom-poms and she
gave one to Max to use. Ray looked over his shoulder and grinned. "Thanks
guys! This one's in the bag!"
Jayde couldn't help but feel a twinge of jealousy in her heart. She'd never
had support from anyone for a long time. But she couldn't tear her
attention away from the battle. Not for a second.
"Driger! Counter attack!" Driger swerved to the side and tried to attack
Kantora from behind. But it was moving too fast. They battled viciously,
hitting each other full force. You could feel the tension, and the heat
from the battle. "Full force now Driger!" Driger hit Kantora with such
force that Kantora flipped to the side! "Steady Kantora!" Sparks flew off
the side of the dish as Kantora managed to regain balance.
"Whoa!" Tyson stared in awe. "That was a great recovery! Ray might have his
hands full!" Hilary and Max had stopped cheering for the moment to watch
the battle, but a few minutes later, they were back to cheering. "Ray! Go
Ray! Beat 'em for us!" Kai had now stopped acting like nothing was going on
as he usually did and watched the battle commence.
Jayde's blade suddenly started glowing. Just a bit. But it was enough to
catch the attention of both bladers. Concentrate... concentrate... she shut her
eyes and for some reason the blade stopped glowing. Then it started up
again, flickering on and off. Ray looked puzzled. "What the...?"
Suddenly, Driger started reacting. It started glowing, although the figure
didn't fully materialize. "Driger... what's up?" asked Ray. The partially
materialized bit-beast gave Ray a meaningful look and nod, reminding Ray to
stay in the game. "Driger! Final atta..."
Jayde had recalled hr blade. It flew to her hand. She was panting. Surely
the battle didn't take THAT much out of her... he thought to himself. It was
short, and she was putting up a really good fight... why end it?
Kai apparently thought the same thing. "What was that?" he questioned. "We
don't take quitters you know! And you aid you had something to prove!" His
eyes flashed menacingly. "I...well, you should know when to draw the line!
Every blader should know that!" She then turned and ran down the shoreline.
"Ray! There' something I have to tell you!" Kenny ran up to him with his
laptop in front of him. "What is it?" he asked, finally calling back Driger
and turning to face his team. "It's about Jayde's blade! There's something
wrong with it!"
Well, there's another cliffhanger! I'll be back with more later! Keep
