Edgar felt the relief when they called the match. He really did not feel that had gotten into battle all that much. Yet, he could admit that Cloud certainly had the strength to have won the match. The true irony came from the fact that the coloring contest weighed more than the actual fight. It made the kind shake his head a bit in confusion. Not that he minded at all. It was such a relief to know that the girl was out of the match and that she might be safe now. The last thing he wanted was an innocent harmed in something like this. Though, he was sure that Cloud believed he could keep her safe, Edgar wasn't as convinced. Yet, the boy was strong and would have likely won the match. However, the risk that he couldn't keep her completely safe was too high for Edgar to believe. It was slightly frustrating.
Once the match was called, the King had stood and placed his weapon back in it's rightful place. He was truly surprised they'd made it this far. The ruling was given and Locke and himself were to be advancing to the next stage of the tournament. Honestly, he was growing weary of continuing this. He wished to just find his way home on his own. But that was just wishful thinking. They needed the recognition from this tournament to be able to gather information to get home. A champion could certainly sort things out and convince people to give him information.
His eyes moved over to the young girl that they had challenged before he patted Locke's arm and shifted over to apologize to her. He felt a tad bit guilty for treating her like a child. Though, he would have done it again without a second thought. So, maybe he wasn't all the guilty. "My apology for snapping at your father during out match. I'm usually quite level headed. You just reminded me of a friend of mine. She also liked coloring and painting... But you did well! You certainly gave Locke a fun for his money." He smiled.
Anyone who wants to join that's in, or was in, the tournament may enter this thread!
