"Wait wait....uh, first things first. Who are you? Where am I? And...how did you manage to come inside of the mine so fast?"
"You sure got a lot of questions don't ya?" The girl said, laughing. "Well don't blame you I guess kinda did just almost die and all. I'm Aurea, I work at the Small Sports Stadium as a trainer, you're at my place, and...well, I was already inside of it. I go there every once in a while. If you want to know how I got in at all...I can't really say." She gave an apologetic look, one that gave her the appearance of having sucked on a lemon, and shrugged. "I know someone who knows a way in but I don't want to tell the wrong people you know? They could get in trouble....Now...want some pie?" She said, grinning. "I heard your stomach rumbling from here, you'd think a Fighter would know to keep her belly filled. Never know when you won't get a next meal."

Aria wouldn't have much time before technitions, in the form of floating spherical robots, rushed into the room she was in and got to work. Another, dressed like a waiter, ushered the girl out and towards one of the Lounges. They were on the floor below the Virtual Battlefields and appeared to be soundproof. As, when Aria entered the sliding doors, she would hear music playing. Which seemed to be coming from a live band at the far end, standing atop a small, round, stage. Throughout the lounge was several "pits" which were areas of lowered floor, also round, with a table in the middle and cushioned floors and seats all around the edges. Each table contained a three-sided television, with attached headphones, and a button that was marked "Call Waiter". The robot seemed to intend that Aria relax there for a while after her ordeal. Though she wouldn't be prevented from leaving.
After the end of Aria and Elijah's fight the servers where people posted about the Arena went down. So many people were flooding in and remarking about the unusual end that the site couldn't handle it. Several hours past before the comments finally started to roll in.
Though they were mostly about the ending of the fight there were several that remarked on Aria's performance.
"She really stepped it up."
"Impressive how she handled an Error like that. Elijah just stood there and took it basically."
"I wish there was a swimsuit skin..."
Meanwhile the comments on the other fight were a bit more subdued.
"They talk a lot don't they?"
"Xia is so sweet! It's like she doesn't even realize it's a competition."
"I think she threw Angela off her game cause of that."
"Is Angela ever on her game?"
"Be nice it was an unfair matchup!"
"I ship it"
