(Kyouka is now locked in the same shackles that held Erza earlier)
ERZA: (grinning evilly) I can't wait to pay you back in full for your… wondrous hospitality…
LISSANNA: What did they do to her...
NATSU: Where are Mira and Elfman!?
ERZA: Did they catch Elfman to? (holds sword to Kyouka's throat) Where are they!?
KYOUKA: Elfman? I don't know who this "Elfman" is… But Mira's in the lab on the 3rd floor. But it might be too late.
NATSU: You little...
LISSANNA: I'm going there!
ERZA: Natsu, go with her. I'll stay here.
NATSU: Got it! (he and Lissana both leave)
ERZA: (chops off one of Kyouka's arms)
ERZA: That's for lying about not knowing who Elfman is.
KYOUKA: No! You're wrong! I truly don't know who he is!
ERZA: What makes you think that same lie would work the second time? (chops off Kyouka's other arm)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (Falls face first onto the floor, slamming her face right into it)
ERZA: You know, I actually thought that those shackles wouldn't prevent you from using your curses. But I thought dismemberment might do the trick. (Grabs Kyouka by the back of the head and lifts it upward to face her) Don't play dumb with me. You know exactly who Elfman is. You know for a fact that he's Mirajane's brother. Now, tell me where Elfman is. And tell me the truth this time. NOW! (Slams Kyouka's face to the floor with extreme force several times. Kyouka's face grows bloodier and more broken each and every time her head gets smashed against the floor. Her mask starts cracking and then breaking apart, and shards of it end up in the skin on her face, causing it to bleed excessively. Then Erza stops and tilts Kyouka's face towards her again. Kyouka's face is now all covered in blood due to a broken nose mashed into paste and fractures in her skull) Ready to talk now?
KYOUKA: Fine! I'll tell you! He's in the same place where I put Mirajane. Sayla's laboratory...
ERZA: Thanks for the info. But we're not done yet. (Throws Kyouka back to the wall behind her. Then she re-equips a knife and points it at Kyouka's stomach. Kyouka starts sweating in fear) Now, chances are, you might have already turned Mirajane into a demon. And if that's the case, how do I change her back?
KYOUKA: Heh… He he he he he he he...
ERZA: What's so funny?
KYOUKA: Oh, come on. Once I turn someone into a demon, there's no way to change them back!
ERZA: More lies! You are just a filthy pig. How about I… dissect you like one? (cuts along above Kyouka's chest, then slightly above her hips, then across the middle of her abdomen, as if she were dissecting a frog. then, Re-Equips back into her Heart Kreuz Armor and grabs the cut she made in the abdomen)
KYOUKA: What are you doing!?
ERZA: I just thought I'd see your stripping-me-naked and raise you a cutting-your-stomach-open.
KYOUKA: No! No no no no nononononononono! Anything but that!
ERZA: (Violently rips Kyouka's stomach open with her hands)
ERZA: How does it feel, now that the tables are turned, eh? (Wraps Kyouka's intestines around her own hand) Now tell me how to undo Mirajane's conversion. If you want all of your innards to remain intact.
KYOUKA: S… Sayla's the one who operates the conversions! Not me! She's the one you should ask for information like…
ERZA: (Pulls on Kyouka's intestines)
ERZA: Start talking or I'll yank your intestines out.
KYOUKA: I didn't turn Mirajane into a demon! I swear! I was just using her as leverage! I just wanted to…
ERZA: (Rips Kyouka's intestines right out)
ERZA: (Drops Kyouka's intestines onto the floor) That must really hurt, doesn't it. I don't need a Sensation Curse to increase your sensitivity to pain.
KYOUKA: (under her breath) "This is impossible. She begged me to release Mirajane before, but now… now she seems to be abandoning her just to make me suffer… What kind of a…. monster is she!?" (trembles, sweats, and cries in fear)
ERZA: (Grabs one of Kyouka's lungs) Now, tell me how to undo convergence.
KYOUKA: (Whimpers as sweat pours down her face)
ERZA: Don't worry, I won't tear out the other lung. You won't be of much use to me if I kill you right here and now.
KYOUKA: I didn't convert Mirajane… And I don't know how to reverse conversion… (sobs profusely) I'm… t-t-t-telling you… the truth...
ERZA: No, you're not. (rips Kyouka's lung right out of her ribcage)
ERZA: Ironic isn't it. (Drops Kyouka's lung onto the floor) You said last time that the next time we did this, you would make me scream beyond what was considered possible. Well, now who's the one screaming? I hope you're not enjoying this little role-reversal nearly as much as I am. Your agonized shrieks sooth me. (turns to look at her hand, covered in Kyouka's blood) And your blood…. (licks the blood from her hand) Delicious...
KYOUKA: OKAY! OKAY! FINE! I'LL TALK! Th… The machine has a reverse switch. It removes demon particles from who's in the tube. Just put her into the tube and activate the switch that removes the demon particles...
ERZA: Thanks again, but we're not done yet. You see, while I was locked up all comfy and cozy in your shackles, I noticed sort of a vibration earlier. If you resort to the "there was an earthquake" excuse, which organ shall I rip out next? Your liver, a popular target for evisceration, or your stomach, which you need in order to digest the babies you eat on a regular basis? Sometimes the ones that you get pregnant with whenever you rape men!
KYOUKA: I'll talk! Our castle reacted to the removal of Face's seal!
ERZA: (growls at Kyouka and starts to punch her in the face over and over and over again)
KYOUKA: (struggling to speak as she's being punched, gets punched in between words) No! Stop! We… Didn't… Kill… Jellal...
ERZA: (Stops punching Kyouka and grabs her by the collar) Don't lie to me! You said that his death would release Face's seal! If you really so naive as to tell me that you really did release the seal without killing Jellal… (rips out Kyouka's liver)
ERZA: THEN WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE YOU!?
KYOUKA: We used another method of breaking the seal!
ERZA: And how?
KYOUKA: I'm not telling…
ERZA: Very well, then... (punches Kyouka in the stomach. As in the body organ)
KYOUKA: What are you doing!?
ERZA: (punches Kyouka in the stomach again)
KYOUKA: (begins to vomit. Erza tilts Kyouka's head so that she ends up puking into her cut-open stomach. Kyouka vomits into her body. After she finished vomiting, she cringes at the pain caused by vomit touching her body organs and her innards) I killed chairman Crawford Seam… he held the final seal to Face… He transferred the key into himself before I killed him…
ERZA: What are you trying to accomplish? What is Face and what do you need it for?
KYOUKA: Face is a weapon able to wipe all magic from a continent. We need it to return… to Zeref's place.
ERZA: Tell me what that means and why you plan on returning to his "place."
KYOUKA: (smugly) Nothing a mere human like you would understand…
ERZA: Well, then I guess you won't be needing this anymore. (rips out Kyouka's stomach)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! STOP IT! DON'T DO THIS TO ME ANYMORE!
ERZA: There's an old saying that goes, Kyouka. "Live by the sword, die by the sword." You tortured me and now I'm torturing you back. It's called karma. (licks Kyouka's blood from her severed arms, dangling from the shackles that once held her) Sweet delicious karma. Forget about strawberry cakes and star mango sorbets, your blood is my new favorite treat!
KYOUKA: YOU'RE EVIL! YOU'RE A MONSTER! YOU'RE A SADIST!
ERZA: (sharply turns towards Kyouka, with a menacing glare in her eyes) What?! (walks towards a whimpering, trembling Kyouka) You abducted me… locked me in this dungeon… stripped me naked… (throws Kyouka back forward again, causing her face to slam into the floor again) cast your Sensation Curse on me, heightening my sensitivity to pain… (steps on Kyouka's shoulder and prepares to press her foot down on it) whipped me… sent your little pet down here to electrocute me… threatened to convert Mirajane if I didn't submit, threatened to kill Jellal if I did… (presses her food down Kyouka's shoulder, causing her shoulder bone to break)
ERZA: And yet you have the gall to call me evil!? Me a monster!? (steps off Kyouka's shoulder and grabs her by the back of the head again) ME A SADIST!? (slams Kyouka's face into the floor) YOU ARE EVIL! (slams Kyouka's face into the floor) YOU ARE THE MONSTER! (slams Kyouka's face into the floor) YOU ARE THE SADIST! (slams Kyouka's face into the floor. Then gets up and presses her foot onto Kyouka's other shoulder) I'm just one of your victims, trying to get a little catharsis. And there's nothing more cathartic than hearing you squeal like the evil, repulsive pig that you are.
KYOUKA: You… you...
ERZA: Now squeal, little piggy. Squeal. (presses her food down Kyouka's shoulder, causing her shoulder bone to break)
ERZA: You know, I really enjoy hearing your bones break. (glances down at Kyouka) My, my, that's a delicately sculpted butt you've got there. (re-quips a knife and crouches down) It does look a bit fat, though. But I can fix that. (shoves her knife into one of Kyouka's butt-cheeks)
ERZA: (slices the knife through Kyouka's butt-cheek)
ERZA: (Rips Kyouka's butt cheek right off of her body)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! PLEASE STOP! WHAT HAVE I EVER DONE TO YOU!?
ERZA: You mean besides torturing me with my sensitivity to pain heightened and stripping me naked? And threatening to turn Mira into one of your demonic minions? Those are exactly what you have ever done to me. Now be a good girl and accept your penance with grace and dignity.
KYOUKA: I-it was… to gather information about Face…
ERZA: Your attempt at justifying your heinous crimes is quite… What's the proper term for it? Oh yeah. Half-assed! (Starts to eat Kyouka's now chopped-off butt-cheek) Tasty. (Kyouka stares and trembles in fear. Erza throws Kyouka back to the wall behind her) Now, clarify on "reuniting with Zeref."
KYOUKA: (says nothing)
ERZA: Well then... (re-equips her Lightning Empress spear and sends over a million watts into Kyouka)
ERZA: (stops electrocuting Kyouka) Ready to talk now?
KYOUKA: (says nothing)
ERZA: No? (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: (stops electrocuting Kyouka) Now, I won't ask you again… What do you mean when you said, "reunite with Zeref?"
KYOUKA: We were… born thanks to Zeref's love… from the book he wrote… We are demons from the book of Zeref… It's only natural that we'd believe in our creator…
ERZA: So essentially, what you're saying is, you and your buddies are a bunch of lapdogs.
KYOUKA: Lapdogs!? You dare to...
ERZA: (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: (stops electrocuting Kyouka) Now, tell me... what do you plan on doing once you've reunited with Zeref.
KYOUKA: Even we don't know. We just await his commands. When we reunite with Zeref, we shall hear his wish, and grant it to him... We shall carry out his commands...
ERZA: So, you and your friends only exist to enact Zeref's will. None of you have your own ambitions other than to lick his boots until you die. The big bad Nine Demon Gates of Tartaros are nothing more than Zeref's little toadies. What a miserable existence. (zaps Kyouka with her spear again, this time aiming for the head)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (Kyouka's eyes pop out of her face, still attached to her head by the optic nerves)
ERZA: (stops electrocuting Kyouka, then walks up to her and grabs her eyes by the optic nerves) How pathetic that the Nine Demon Gates, Tartaros's elite brand of super villains, are nothing more than Zeref's brainless puppets. (Then starts pulling on the optic nerves)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! AAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
ERZA: (Rips Kyouka's eyes right out of their sockets)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! STOP IT! I ALREADY TOLD YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANT!
ERZA: I know you did. I just want you to pay for what you've done. (Drops Kyouka's eyeballs on the floor and squashes them) Actually, I do have one final question for you… (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: WHY DID YOU TORTURE ME!? WHY!? (stops electrocuting Kyouka)
KYOUKA: I wanted… to find Jellal… I wanted to unlock Face with his death…
ERZA: Liar! (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: You just used him as an excuse to torture me. I kept telling you over, and over, and over again that I didn't know where Jellal is. And yet you continued torturing me. What part of "I don't know where Jellal is" did you not understand? (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: Or maybe you just didn't care if I knew or not. You were just using him as a superficial front, weren't you? In fact, had I not broken out in time, even with Face's seal lifted, you would have still demanded his whereabouts, wouldn't you?
KYOUKA: (says nothing)
ERZA: WOULDN'T YOU!? (zaps Kyouka again)
ERZA: (requips a knife) I'd love to start chopping off your fingers one by one, but I can't really do that now that both of your arms have been chopped off. But… (walks over to Kyouka's feet and sits down) ...your toes are still fair game.
KYOUKA: NO! DON'T DO IT! ANYTHING BUT THAT!
ERZA: For every lie you tell, you lose a toe. So if you want to keep all of them, you should be 100% honest the first time around. Deal? (chops off one of Kyouka's toes)
ERZA: Well, almost all of them. Now, out with it, why did you torture me?
KYOUKA: I wanted to find Jellal and use his death to activate Face… It's essential to our…
ERZA: (chops off another toe)
ERZA: You better start confessing fast, Kyouka. If you don't by the time you lose all ten of your toes, what should I go for next? Your cheeks? Your calves? Or maybe I peel off the skin from your back and eat it?
KYOUKA: It was to find Jellal! Honest! I needed him to…
ERZA: (chops off another toe)
ERZA: You have only two toes left on this one foot. Better start talking fast, or I'll chop them both off and start moving to the other foot. And then...
KYOUKA: Okay! Okay! I'll talk! I tortured you because I thought I would enjoy it! And I did!
ERZA: (growls like a violent animal, then re-quips to an ice-skate on her foot, and presses it hard into Kyouka's foot) You truly are the scum of the earth, Kyouka. People like you should drop like flies one by one. (Presses the ice skate into Kyoka's foot, chopping it off, and then switches to her normal boot)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! NOW WHO'S THE LIAR!? YOU SAID YOU WOULD STOP DOING THIS AFTER I TOLD THE TRUTH! How could a mere human… BE SO INHUMAN!?
ERZA: You're the one who's inhuman, not me. After all, you've been gloating about how much you enjoyed my suffering. So, I'll reward you by telling you why I'm torturing you now… (presses down on Kyouka's other foot and switches back to the ice skate) Because I want you to know how it felt. Because I want you to know what it's like to suffer. Because I want you to know what it's like to be at the mercy of someone who relishes your pain. And understand my perspective from when you did what you did. They say that before you criticize people, you should walk a mile in their shoes. So I decided to glue my shoes to your feet and push you down that mile. (Presses the ice skate into Kyoka's foot, chopping it off, and then switches to her normal boot)
ERZA: You may see me now as a heartless sadist, but you brought this on yourself. You know deep down that you deserve this. You know deep down that if you had simply never tortured me in the first place, you would have been spared this pain. You, of course, are the real sadist. Now, I'd love to stick around and play with you some more, but I have business to attend to. So, why don't you make yourself comfortable until I get back? (pats Kyouka on the head) I hope you enjoy sepsis. Oh, and before I leave, I want to leave you with a little parting gift. It must be awfully uncomfortable to lie down on a cold stone floor all day. I bet you're freezing at this point and you hope for something to keep you warm. Fortunately, I got just the thing. (re-quips a normal sword in one hand and one of her Flame Empress swords in the other. She presses the two blades against each other. The normal sword heats up dramatically)
KYOUKA: (Can't see the heated blade due to having her eyes torn out, but can hear the blade sizzle) No! No! Please have mercy!
ERZA: Mercy? (The Flame Empress sword disappears) What about all the people who begged you for mercy? Myself included. Were you willing to grant them any?
KYOUKA: Kill me! Please!
ERZA: Kill you!? Oh, no no no no no. I have so much more pain and torment planned for you. I just have some important stuff I need to do first. Saving Mira, stopping Face… and slaughtering the other eight Demon Gates like cattle! Maybe when I'm done, I'll let you have your sight back so you could appreciate my craftsmanship.
KYOUKA: NO! DON'T!
ERZA: It'll be what you and your friends get for being Zeref's mindless drones. And for what you've done to me. In the meantime… (Lifts up Kyouka, puts the heated blade underneath her, then puts her back down again. The heated blade burns away at Kyouka's back due to being underneath her)
KYOUKA: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! YOU'LL PAY FOR THIS, YOU HEARTLESS, MANIACAL FREAK!
ERZA: You want to know who the real heartless maniacal freak is? Try looking in the mirror. Oh wait, you can't. Maybe I should have let you keep your eyes in order for that to happen. And quit playing the innocent victim. You tortured me and now you're paying the price for it. It's called "comeuppance." But when I'm done with my errands, I, like I said, will treat you to even more pain and suffering, so pray that you bleed to death before I get back. Either way, your Slave Planet will be sucked into my Black Hole eventually. And so will the rest of Tartaros's solar system. (Runs right out of the dungeon)
KYOUKA: (a few seconds after Erza already left) You'll… pay… for… this… I'll kill you… I'll kill you. I'll kill you! Kill you! KILL YOU! KILL YOU! KIIIIIIIILL YOOOOOOUUUUUU!
ERZA: (Has already left the dungeon and goes off to save Mirajane and stop Face. She takes a quick look at her hand, covered in Kyouka's blood) I never really did like the taste of her blood...
