Hey guys, thanks for being patient! Here's the update! :) I'll aim to update the next page on Saturday.

I know I haven't a Friday Flare in a while, sorry about that. The unwritten prerequisite for Friday Flare updates are 'when I'm not super behind on everything else' XD;;; but I'll definitely get back behind that once I'm caught up on the update schedule again!

Sorry to be absent from comments and things lately! Thanks for reading <3

Well look on the bright side at least Cain and the others will be escaping.

Remember that shady silhouette outside Cain's cell?

Please don't make me worry about the little cherry glazed cinnamon roll.

@Ryan97: That is just about one of the cutest nicknames bestowed upon Cain that I've heard thus far XD

Hm...are you sure, announcer? She IS a Lethian Knight, and has frozen vast areas before without a sword...

Amarok

Ya, but who are we kidding? She will anyway. ;)

Ice sword anyone?

So, does that mean they have to stay in prison? =O

Poor Kylie... =S

Poor Cain... =S

I hope the others got Cain freed before he snapped... =S


*hugs Rufi* <3 =)


/Balzac joined the party/

Balzac joining the party instead of Cain, you mean? Now there's an interesting thought! XD

I seriously doubt that the fight is over.

It's heartwarming to know readers don't want it to be over! XD;

WELP :/

Somehow, though, I doubt Kylie is going to give up quite yet...

rufiangel
Welp indeed! It's all about what's at stake, eh? ;)
megados 15th Jun 2017, 6:04 AM edit delete reply
I think Balzac is wrong. Kylie is strong enough; her sword wasn't. I'm not sure I'd count her out.
rufiangel 18th Jun 2017, 12:00 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I like the way you put it, megados! <3

The good news is that now that she lost this sword, she could can look forward to getting a newer, better one later XD;;

Kylie strikes me as the stubborn type and will probably do something to get herself back in the fight...something she probably shouldn't, but...
rufiangel 18th Jun 2017, 1:16 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Why did I suddenly imagine Kylie bribing the announcer? XD

"You're not strong enough"????

And that, Balzak, was your mistake... you dun ticked her off!!!! That is something you NEVER say to a determined woman... (ranks right up there with "you're just a gurl" and "Wut, you gonna cry now?")

Lord, please protect Balzak in this time of extreme pain and tribulation... And the choir says.

Amen

Indeed, how determined is Kylie right now anyway? ;) lolol, though definitely it's good advice to just not goad people in general! :'D

Yeppers ma'am, just like that. :') Gambling can be like that - just one moment, and you suffer a major loss... T.T

Does she still have the bag of holding, maybe there is one in there?

Competitors of the Quarterlies aren't allowed to carry item bags with them, sadly. -v-;;

Awwww Kylie.. I'm sorry.
But maybe it's not over, you can use ice, girl!
Seia murdered two guys that were with Ophelia with just one spell!
(That said, dont murder Balzac please ^^)

rufiangel
Gosh, she'd better not murder Balzac, that's a whole new path the story would take that I'm not keen on going down XDDD

What?!? But.. no... She *is* strong enough, and nice enough, and clever enough, and dog-gone it, people *like* her!

D'aww, Wolfsbane! XD <3 That's some darn nice things to say about Kylie, I'm sure she appreciates the support <3

I find it touching that Briar is concerned for her. This will be in Kylie's favor when she tries to get her brother.

She obviously will continue the match with or without her sword. :)

Now that you say that... I think Kaoru managed to beat an opponent in Rurouni Kenshin by using a Kamiya technique where you slam the hilt of the shinai into the person's thumb to break it, so certainly anything is possible! o.o
Scia 16th Jun 2017, 3:41 AM edit delete reply
Insult or no, I wonder if Balzac fought the way he did as a means of mercy. I mean, Kylie was getting pretty beat up, there's a good chance she'd get destroyed in the last round, and he found a way to (theoretically) take her out of the competition before that happened, while doing minimal damage. He IS a cleric; he might be fighting in the nicest way he knows how. (Well, to an extent, anyway.)

I think that's a pretty valid read, Scia! :D

Next episode: She uses the powerboost of the focus to kick him in the balls

You know, Thomas, I think this is the third or fourth comment I've read about kicking the guy in the nuts! Poor Balzac! XD;;;
