Chapter 3: Rise of the Sphinx
The Nakamura incedent
Black Anubis raises his hands in the air as he snarls a vicious spell that curdles the very air around him. He calls more and more power causing the runes on an ancient floor to light up with energy. As the spell coalesces and takes form he wills its intent into being smirking triumphantly before his face loses the looks of triumph and is replaced by one of abject shock and rage.
Anubis roars in rage as his spell fails and he breaths a gout of black shadow flame on the unfortunate sacrifice he had used to power the ritual.
A feminine voice near by Smirks "I take it things didn't go as planned?" she mocks him in all sincerity
He rounds on the woman in the Reddish Orange costume her long dark hair waving behind her in the breeze, she doesn't look in the slightest worried though she takes an instinctive step back at his fury.
"Don't forget who you serve Garnet, you and your entire bunch of petty crooks would be nothing If I hadn't found you, Empowered you and made you more!" He snarls viciously
"How could we?" she harumphs "You constantly remind us." her eyes meet his as they glow a bright orangish red its a contest of wills But it is Garnet who backs down first though she holds his dark gaze quite a while.
"So what now?" she asks "We're no closer to Gemstone, and you're not closer to the armor."
Anubis harumphs in frustration as he thinks long and hard. "The wards on the vault are powerful, I sense the hand of the accursed lady grey in this, she must have some interest in this business."
"I might have an idea." Garnet speaks causing Anubis to look at her sideways as she continues
"If you cant break it open, We'll just get them or someone to open it for us."
The pair walk off as Anubis chuckles malevolently.
