The four made their way to the arena door.
"I guess this is it." Kamome said, standing in the doorway. "Good luck, everyone. I hope that we can all live to see another day when it's al over."
And with that, they stepped inside. A huge, grey dome unfolded before them, with a large white circle in the center. There was a judges' area straight back against the north wall, which the comittee currently was.
Five figures. . .a middle-aged woman with an amazingly muscular body and a whip, a man with a blonde ponytail and spectacles, the bat-man, the succubus whom Theodarus had asked out to dinner, and finally, Momo, who was hovering in front of them all.
"Please make your way to the seats on either side!" Momo's squeaky voice somehow rose above the clamoring of the already-seated contestants. "The first round shall begin in five minutes."
"Let's go over there." Kamome said, walking along the sidelines of the massive white circle, and climbing onto a flimsy metal ladder that led to the suspended seating.
The seats looked like enhanced bleachers, not cold metal, but more like dark shaped plastic. Each seat had its own armrests, but they were more or less flat, with uncomfortable backs.
Kamome looked around, then, after a few moments, seemed to find what he was looking for. "Negi!" he shouted.
Negi was seated in the farthest row back, surrounded by Christopher, Ari, Zander, and Rall.
"How are you guys doing?" Negi said, scooting down to make room for Kamome and his three companions. "It looks like you all found a place to rest..."
