Lazarus rounded on the priest,"Not to mention it will probably want you to do the same thing it wanted me to do! Just for a different purpose. I'm not letting you sacrifice all of Fuyuki just to satisfy your curiosity." Lazarus stood as tall as he was able, his happy go lucky nature replaced by a fierce and serious expression. It would be costly for someone to try and fight the mage on this, no matter how skilled they might be.

Kirei gritted his teeth, but before they could argue further, a deep gurgling sound emanated from the Grail. They looked up to see something overflowing from it once again, but instead of water, it was a dark, black mud.

It slopped over the sides of the cup and piled up on the stage under it, quickly accumulating in a large pile. It began to twitch and move by itself, and everyone present began to sense a deep, overwhelming hunger emanating from it.

"We need to leave," Lazarus grabbed Yui's hand and motioned to the servants to follow as he bolted from the theater.

"Run!" Caster shimmered into spirit form before zipping after Lazarus and Yui, Rider grabbing Kirei's sleeve and pulling him along.

Kirei and Yui followed hot on their heels, with Berserker similarly clinging to Yui's sleeve. "What about the Grail, do we just leave--"

Just as they started to move, the pile of mud twitched and a long black tendril darted toward Rider.

Rider shrieked and jumped to dodge!

"Caster! Use a seal! Get Rider out of there!" Lazarus yelled, hoping his servant would hear. He darted out of the door of the theater and shot straight ahead with Yui in tow. Once he was at least accross the street he looked back to see if the ooze was following them.

The tendril tried to wrap around Rider's arm and pull him back, but he barely managed to slip out of its grasp. Still, it grazed him, and just a light contact burned and blackened his skin, sending agonizing pain shooting up his arm.

Rider
HP: 175/200
MP: 300/300

With them running out the door, Lazarus saw the ooze retreating, instead merging back with the rest of the mass, more of which was pouring out and beginning to congeal around the Grail.

Rider screamed, letting go of Kirei's sleeve. His voice was choked through the pain.

"Hippogriff!!" The beast appeared underneath him and sent him flying ahead. He prayed it would be fast enough.

"Alright, we need to stop this." He said, taking a moment to breathe. He looked to Kirei, "You may be evil, but you know holy magic. Can you do anything?"

The feathered beast appeared under Rider and propelled him out of the theater, almost tearing the theater doors off as he went.

Kirei caught up with the group and looked back, panting. "I know... one thing. A spell for banishing evil spirits. If it will work on this is anyone's guess, but I'm willing to try anything." He placed his hands together. "It will take time to chant. Seal the entrance until I'm ready."

"Of course," Lazarus put a powerful lock and bind spell on the doors while Kirei chanted. He watched it with Caster and Yui, ready to reinforce the doors again if necessary.

Caster's feet touched the ground as he sighed with relief when Astolfo burst through the doors. He nodded at Kirei and stood next to him.

"We're putting a lot of faith in you, priest. I'll get you as much time as I can." A ring formed around Kirei's feet as the flow of mana began to quicken through him. [ARCANE ACCELERATION: RANK B]

Kirei rolled up his sleeves and made a cross shape with his arms, then began to chant. As he did, a glowing golden symbol formed in front of him.



"I will kill. I will let live. I will harm and heal. None will escape me. None will escape my sight.
Be crushed.
I welcome those who have grown old and those who have lost.
Devote yourself to me, learn from me, and obey me.
Rest. Do not forget song, do not forget prayer, and do not forget me.
I am light and relieve you of all your burdens.
Do not pretend. Retribution for forgiveness, betrayal for trust, despair for hope, darkness for light, dark death for the living.
Relief is in my hands. I will add oil to your sins and leave a mark.
Eternal life is given through death.
— Ask for forgiveness here. I, the incarnation, will swear.
"

With the chant complete, he signalled to Lazarus, who opened the doors. A new mass of mud had already begun to rush the doors.

"— Kyrie eleison!"

A blinding white light shot forward and blasted into the mud, sending it back some distance--but not by much. Within a few seconds, it had already regained the mass it had lost, and then some.

Kirei grimaced. "It won't work. There is too much mana pouring into it."

"Perhaps we can cut it off from the leyline somehow?"

Caster scowled. "Damnation!! We need to keep moving!"

Yui bit her thumb. "That won't be enough. It's already pulled up as much mana as it needed to materialize. Plus the mana of four Servants. We may have to destroy the Grail itself."

Lazarus nodded, "Alright. How do we do that?"

She stared into the theater, beyond the mud to the golden cup that was still overflowing. "A Noble Phantasm. A strong one. If that's not enough to do the trick, there might be literally nothing we can do." She stared at the three Servants. "Berserker's Blasted Tree might do it, but it may require her sacrifice. Do either of you have anything powerful that can do the trick?"

Lazarus piped up, "What if they all used their phantasms at once? Or perhaps Rider's book could work, as it seems to cancel magic?"

Caster sighed, shoulders slumping, and shook his head.

"All I have is Azoth, and the now consumed Stone. How about you, Rider?"

"I have Hippogriff, Argalia, and the Casa di Logistilla... And my horn! But I don't think it'll do enough..." Rider looked at his arm, since healed by Caster.

"I don't think the Casa is strong enough to stop this."

"If your Azoth is like mine, you can fire magic from the tip of it, right?" She pulled out her own Azoth sword. "I also have my gems. If we combine all of these with Blasted Tree, that could do enough." She looked back at Berserker. "It might be enough to do with a weakened version of Blasted Tree, but should we risk it? If it doesn't work, I might be able to refill her mana fast enough to use the full-powered version."

"Do you think it'll take all that? The Grail wants souls, it wants us Servants in range to take us. Ranged attacks are our safest idea."

"I can put some magic in as well. I say we go with a full blasted tree. Better safe than sorry..." Lazarus did not want to say goodbye to any more of the servants yet, but their chances were slim...

Yui's eyes began to water up, but Berserker put a comforting hand on her shoulder. She nodded, biting her lip. "I know. You're right."

"The black ooze will try to grab the Servants, but if we direct some magic into clearing away enough of the mud for Berserker to get in range."
