Alvin rolled on the sand, looking up at the monster, annoyed that his hammer hadn't killed it.
He tried something else, since it seemed to be floating still.
Making a guesstimate, he created dozens of portals inside the creature's torso. He knew most of them would fail, as he couldn't create portals inside physical objects, but one of them should work-0
It did. He forgot about the rest of the portals and expanded the one that worked so it filled the entire blood passage.
Soon, all the blood in that thing's body would be pooled up on a beach somewhere. To speed up the process, He added more portals around the heart, quickly suffocating and bleeding the monster dry, as it crashed down to the ground.
"Nice." Hitomi announced, hopping off the stairs and approaching Alvin. "Alright, back to SamJaz. Was he laid flat on a table while the scarred guy was cutting his heart out with a knife?"
Alvin panted, tired from the exertion of flying about and creating those precise portals, and nodded.
"And this guy with the knife, was his scar covering one side of his face, with crude stitches at the edge of it, and have long black hair?" Hitomi continued. Another nod. "Last question, Was SamJaz hooked up to a lot of tubes and machines?"
Getting a third nod in response from Alvin, Hitomi let out a sigh of disbelief and relief, then turned to the rest of the team. "HE'S ALIVE!" She shouted. "HE'S GETTING A HEART TRANSPLANT FOR SOME REASON, BUT THEY GOT THE BEST SURGEON IN THE TOWER DOING IT SO HE SHOULD BE RIGHT AS RAIN WITHIN THE HOUR! LET'S JUST KEEP ON MOVING."
Hitomi headed for the stair, big grin on her face. She had seen the magic Doctor Black Jack had pulled during her time in this tower. The man was an absolute magician.
From the Ceiling with Love found themselves in an ornate throne room meeting the gaze of a sphinx.
"If you want to get past this point alive, you must answer my riddle." The Sphinx warned the team. "What goes on four legs in the morning, on two legs at noon, and on three legs in the evening?"
Hitomi pondered this as the rest of the group followed her down the stairs.
"Probably one of those new Pokemon." Hitomi decided. "There's about 600 of them, I'd be surprised if one of them doesn't change the number of its legs while evolving."
"Fair enough, young lady." The Sphinx conceded. "I can't reasonably expect you to remember all of their names. You may pass."
