"Next up in tonight's competition is the dynamic duo of..."
There was a pause as the announcer squinted at his notes. Questioning the legibility of the text, he asked his co-host to read the names of the next entrants in the East Toraline dance contest. The co-host squinted and adjusted her glasses before whispering what she believed was written on the card.
"Lita and Del!"
/Mr. Worldwide to infinity
You know the roof on fire
We gon' boogie oogie oogie, jiggle, wiggle and dance
Like the roof on fire
We gon' drink drinks and take shots until we fall out/
Lina and Zelgadis, both in disguise, danced out onto the dance floor. The sorceress, clad in a somewhat form-fitting number in red with several whispy skirts, kept herself pressed to Zel's chest as the chimera led her through the steps of their dance.
'Whose bright idea was this again?' the sorceress demanded via a telepathy spell that had been cast prior to their names being called.
'If you want to get technical, it was your idea,' Zel retorted as he spun her around and put his hands on her hips. When he felt the sorceress squirm against his body, he added, 'Bounty sighted.'
/Like the roof on fire
Now baby get your booty naked, take off all your clothes,
And light the roof on fire
Tell her, tell her baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby
I'm on fire
I tell her baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby
I'm a fireball/
A smile tugged the corner of Lina's red-painted lips as she and her partner flowed through the steps of their dance, her flame-red hair swirling around her head with every subtle twist and turn. Spotting their quarry, she waited until the singer stated what he was before she looped her right leg behind Zel's back, the chimera supporting her by cupping his hands under her lower back. Stretching back, she smiled at the judges before stretching her arms out, globes of flame forming in the palms of her hands.
"Fireball!" the sorceress and singer said at the same time, Lina's spells sailing toward her intended target.
Unlocking her right leg and straightening up, she felt Zel take her hand to lead her into the next series of steps. Keeping her right hand clasped in his left hand, he spun her to the full extension of their arms before he joined in the spell casting.
All hell proceeded to break loose as chimera and sorceress danced across the floor, their intended target somehow countering or ducking a split second before their spells were to strike and detonate.
/ I saw, I came, I conquered
Or should I say, I saw, I conquered, I came
They say the chico on fire and he no liar
While y'all slippin' he runnin' the game/
'Where is our backup?' Lina queried as Zel lifted her into the air so that she could light off a few Flare Arrows.
'Knowing Gourry and Amelia, lost somewhere in the wings,' Zel retorted as he dipped her, a hail of Elmekia Lances narrowly missing both of them.
Lina rolled her eyes and snorted. 'Typical yogurt brain.'
/Now big bang boogie
Get that kitty little noogie
In a nice nice little shade
I gave Suzie a little pat up on the booty
And she turned around and said
Walk this way/
Lina jumped as something touched her rump, and it took a couple of seconds to realize that it wasn't Zel who had just given her a pat on the rear. Zel, sensing her anger at the invasion of her personal space, spun her away from him and toward the offender. The sound of a bell being rung filled the area as Lina's high-heel clad foot cracked a pair of nuts.
"I'd like to see you try to walk after that," the sorceress snarled as Zel lifted her into the air once more.
/ I was born in a flame
Mama said that everyone would know my name
I'm the best you've ever had (that's right)
If you think I'm burning out, I'm never am
I'm on fire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire/
The carnage continued as spectators began to flee the now burning event site. Lina's cackling filled the air as Zel continued to spin and lift, giving her all the openings she needed to nail their intended target and net them a big reward from the P.M.S.
"I'm on fire!" one unfortunate soul declared before pitching off of a balcony and into the orchestra pit.
One entire wall crumbled following the impact of a spell thrown from the outside. Lina raised an eyebrow as Amelia and Gourry crashed through the debris, the princess dishing out her particular style of justice while the swordsman looked around for their bounty. Summoning the sword of light, Gourry crashed through the chaos and leaped into the air.
Lina's spell struck the blade of the sword of light, adding a flame element to the weapon while also boosting the power of her spell. Gourry let out a mighty battle cry as he spun around and unleashed the boosted spell, their target having run out of places to flee and people to hide behind.
A mighty explosion rocked the countryside as a Mazoku threat was laid to waste. As the smoke began to clear Zel looked down to find Lina's right leg on his left shoulder, her ankle looped around the back of his neck. Looking further down he saw that Lina's palms were pressed to the ground, the sorceress having cast a Vlave Howl to protect them from the shock wave and falling debris.
"Zel?" Lina asked as she unhooked her ankle from behind his neck and flipped backward and back onto her feet.
"Lina, I swear I didn't see anything," he replied hastily, knowing full well that the sorceress would make him hurt if she so chose.
The sorceress giggled. "I know," she said as she leaned into his chest. Kissing him lightly on the cheek, she added, "thank you for the dance."
The chimera blushed. "Hopefully the next time we dance we don't literally bring the house down," he said as they linked arms and made their
