With the end of the battle seemingly in sight, Surge and his trainer didn’t want to lose the upper hand that they had gained. The Houndoom looked over at Lotus, who was prowling on the other side of the pool; he knew that she would want to try and stop him from attacking her and so needed a way to counter a move like that. With his eyes still on the Zorua he was trying to stop, Surge focused on creating a barrier in the air between the two of them; a thin, blue dome began to form around him – this would protect him from just about anything the little black fox could throw at him. His focus increased and the dome thickened, strengthening so that it could with stand incredibly high forces and pressures. The black dog looked out from behind his shield; he was ready for whatever trick this fox tried to pull.

Lotus, however, had been too busy preparing her own attack to notice what her adversary was doing. Pink and blue hearts orbited the Zorua and her pair of clones like a trio of miniature solar systems. Lotus hated doing this, she didn’t even like this dog, but knew that she had to find some way of stopping him before she was torn apart; it seemed to be necessary. The Zorua blew a kiss at her target as the hearts which were orbiting her broke away and flew at him. Hearts filled the sky but Surge remained calm – there was no way for them to break through his shield. Sure enough, the hearts were all broken or deflected by the shimmering dome, making Lotus scream in anger – she was already low on energy and wasting it now was definitely not good.

Surge’s plan was going well so far; he had managed to avoid her crippling attack and had already worked out what she would do next. As he was still able to attack her, Lotus would want to be out as soon as possible, so he would have to prepare for whoever came out next. He looked up at the sky and howled, filling the arena with sound. As he did this, he felt a surge of adrenaline course through him – whatever came out next, he would be ready for it.

However, rather than going back to her trainer, Lotus and her clones began to run at Surge; they leapt over the stream and began a half-hearted looking charge at the fiery hound. When the Houndoom looked at them, he could see that the clones were both flickering a little – was Lotus about to run out of energy. The fox looked at her target through narrowed eyes; it was hurting her just to continue this – she wanted to have it finished with. She stumbled and fell, her clones disappearing. Although she tried to stand again, it was no use; she didn’t have enough energy to go on any more – she let herself slip away. Surge looked down at the fallen trickster; he could have sworn that he didn’t touch her.
