For such wiggly, jiggly monsters, these “Flan” as the girls had taken to calling them were proving to be quite durable monsters. Tifa dashed forward as fast as she could and delivered a flurry of punches and kicks on one of them before quickly retreating, but all that seemed to do was making the red mass of jelly wobble a bit before growling at her.
“We need to hit the harder!” Tifa called out to the others. She looked to both Aeris and Yuffie, and the three of them nodded, a plan having silently formed between them. Tifa dashed forward once again, this time attacking low with a sweeping kick to catch both monsters off balance, and followed it up with a rising uppercut to launch one of them into the air, where Aeris was waiting with her staff and brought it crashing down on the Flan’s head. In the meantime, Yuffie kept the other Flan distracted by hurling her oversized shuriken at the creature. The team attack funished, Tifa and Aeris retreated back to where Yuffie had been waiting.
“Did ya get him?” Yuffie asked. A look back at the two monsters was all the answer they needed. The yellow one, the one Tifa and Aeris had tag teamed, lay slumped on the ground in a large mass of goo for a moment or two before springing back up, growling more angrily than ever. Its friend joined in as well, quite unhappy with the large throwing implement that had been stuck in its eye. The two monsters waved their arm like appendages at the party and began to glow brightly with energy.
“RUN,” Aeris shouted, and the three ladies quickly scrambled out of the way just fast enough to avoid the large fireball that had been hurled their way.
“This… is going… NOWHERE!” Tifa gasped and panted from behind the cover of a large rock. They’d been fighting these Flan things for what seemed like forever, and yet they still showed no sign of progress. The little boogers were nothing if not resilient.
“Who’d have… thought…” Yuffie wheezed between breaths, “that these… these blobs could take a hit!”
Aeris said nothing, but simply nodded in agreement. It certainly wasn’t helping that the three of them had inexplicably grown even larger over the duration of the fight. It wasn’t noticeable at first, but now she and the others could definitely feel it. The added weight and bulk to their bodies made them almost as soft, wobbly and jiggly as the monsters they’d been struggling to defeat.
Only their labored panting and the gurgling and growling of the Flans could be heard as the three girls fell silent for a moment. Finally, Aeris spoke up.
“If our regular attacks can’t hurt these guys, maybe we should try magic on them?”
“It’s worth a shot,” Tifa nodded in agreement. “Yuffie, give us our Materia.”
Yuffie’s features tensed notably for a moment. “Wuh- who me? What makes you think I have it?”
“This,” Aeris answered, and smacked the side pockets of Yuffie’s shorts.
“Hey quit it!” Yuffie protested and attempted to fend Aeris off, who had proceeded to grab onto the canvas material and started shaking out Yuffie’s pockets as best she could, nearly removing the shorts in the ensuing struggle. Sure enough, several round, colored orbs popped out of her pockets and clattered to the ground.
Tifa merely rolled her eyes. She wasn’t sure how Yuffie managed to hide so much Materia in her pockets without them knowing, especially considering how tight they’d become as of recent. Instead, she merely knelt down and started picking up Materia to slot into her gloves.
“Hmm… yeah, I think these will do nicely!” She thought to herself. It was time for a counter attack!
