Gavin bellowed out again as he lashed out at Matt and Sephiroth, batting them into the wall. The two of them groaned and got to their feet to continue the fight. Katieo barraged Gavin with a flurry of arrows as she stood with JR and Char on the sidelines.
"Nothing's working!" said Katieo. "My arrows aren't just shattering against him, and we can't keep this up." she looked over at Char, who was a little dazed from the blow she had received earlier. "Char, you know Gavin well enough. Is there any weakness he has? Any that can help us?"
Char looked to the floor and thought about it a moment. "Y-Yes...I think..."
"What do you mean, you think?" said JR.
"Well...sometimes whenever Gavin snapped at me, I could calm him down by...well..." Char began to blush.
Katieo's jaw dropped. "You don't mean..."
"NO!" screamed back Char, her face red from the reaction she gave. "Gavin has a... sensitive spot between his shoulder-blades, along the spine. If I could touch it, he may calm down."
JR shook his head as he unloaded a few shots of his shotgun towards Gavin. "Hey, anything works. I'd take the chance." eyeing Gavin, Sephiroth and Matt were positioned so Gavin had his back to the rest of them. "Now's a good time, Char."
Char took a deep breath and rush out at Gavin. She jumped at him and tackled him to the ground. He aggressively fought back, but Char quickly put a hand to his back, right where it needed to go.
Gavin's body froze and he went silent. Moments later, his body began to twitch and shake. His eyes winced as Char ran he hand along his back. Everyone looked upon dumb-founded. "Never would have guessed that..." muttered Sephiroth as the group approached Gavin. Char whispered into Gavin's ears words of reassurance, trying even more so to calm him. Gavin gasped under her touch, but was immobile. Even his limbs couldn't move, they were so tense.
"Give him a bit." said Char. "He should change back once he's calmed."
Katieo looked down at the beastly Gavin. "So...can anyone do this to him, or just you?"
Char blushed. "I'm sure any...girl...can do this to him." Katieo nodded.
"Why would this happen to him? Do you think he's possessed?" asked JR.
Char shook her head. "He could never control his power normally. I guess he just lost it, but perhaps someone is helping aggravate him into this form, so he can kill us." Everyone nodded, it seemed like a more suitable idea.
"Who then?" asked Sephiroth.
"Perhaps the three remaining men." said Matt as he looked over to Vlad's corpse. "Vlad must have been one of them, which means there's two left to take care off."
Suddenly, Gavin arced his back and snared. Char tried her best to maintain control over him. Katieo joined her and lay her hand as well over the spot on Gavin's back, hoping to aid. It seemed to, but Gavin's back didn't lower. His body rigid and tense. "Char..." said Katieo. "I don't know if this is-"
Suddenly, Gavin threw himself up and blasted everyone back with a wave of darkness. The windows along all the room shattered under the shock as massive black, smoking wings pulled from Gavin's body. Taking into the air, Gavin glared down upon the girls as he shot off through one of the windows and disappeared into the sky.
Sephiroth noticed Gavin had dropped his sword. It had also returned to normal. He walked up and took it, while saying, "I guess that almost did it. Whoever's helping aid Gavin's state must be in the building somewhere. We need to find that person." With that, everyone took off and disappeared to search the large estate.
THAT'S LORD GAVIN TO YOU!
