Aestus charge eneded in hitting Jack, with a mighty Haymaker, a truly curde hit for Aestus tastes, but the speed in which he was moving didnt let him choose how to hit, except putting his full weight in each hit, releasing half of the searing arrows he stored in his clenched fist, punching the archer throught several walls and creating a small crater. The knight didnt knew that Jack had set a trap, but his enhanced senses helped to detect the carbon wire, and as it was magically enhanced, the young Magus detected it even with less trouble, since as Magus he could easily feel the magic energy, as easy as he used his other senses. Even if he detected it the speed he was moving was too much for him to turn, and since he used half of the arrows that let him to magically change his course he was in a tough situation, but he had been in worse situations before, he had faith that he would survive this particular danger.
The Phoenix Knight was in a pinch, but he had the perfect solution, it would requiere some finese, concentration, and mostly magical energy, and to get to the possible top of this elements in the current situation, he dispelled his wings, and released the rest of the arrows, sending one of them towards the hole to hit Jack, the other pierced the ground. And melted it's way to the subway, where it took the closer route possible towards Jack feet, attacking from below, Aestus could direct them without seeing them, since the information received by the arrows, even when they were out of the Knight range of vision, was directly comunicated to Aestus, thus letting him direct them without directly seeing them. The last two arrows, were reduced to the size of a candle light, thus making their magical energy almsot untreaceable, and sent by Aestus to prepare something for Jack, the flames directed in two oposite directions
And for evading the horrible death he would had if he crashed with the wires, he focused, in the last second were touching them, and activated the Flamma Corpus, this act requiered Aestus full concentration, greatly helped by the fact that Jack wasnt directly involved and it was only a trap, and for a split, enough to pass throught the wires, his whole body became fire, almost turning himself in a Flame elemental. But even this plan had some flaws, as the transformation wasnt fast enough, some more slashes were added to the Magus body, and united with the ones he had before, when he dodged the rubble from the building destroyed by Jack. But at least he wasnt cutted in small pieces, and now, he really knew how skillfull was Jack, thus he decided to remove the kiddie gloves, and as he walked around the trap, in direction to Jack his body was engulfed in flames, and he summoned his Phoenix Armor
