Cana's Magic reflected back at her

As Mirajane and Elfman Strauss are walking next to the river, they notice a fight going on on top of the bridge. Freed Justine asks Cana Alberona if she doesn't even understand the basics, no matter how strong your attacks are, if they don't hit your opponent, it won't work. Cana uses Magic Card: Heaven, Reverse Death and Mountain Cards: Summoned Lightning and Freed uses Dark Écriture: Reflect to send it back at her.[1]

Cana falls, breaking through the bridge, screaming in pain. Mirajane and Elfman are surprised to see her, and Freed, from the bridge, says that Cana is a tough one and that that was to be expected of a veteran of the guild.

Elfman attacked by Dark Écriture: Pain

Freed writes runes on Elfman's chest and Elfman asks him what did he just do. Freed says that a piece that has lost is forbidden from returning to the games and the punishment for those who break the rules is worse than death. Freed uses Dark Écriture: Pain and Elfman says that his whole body feels weird. Freed explains that his Magic will make those characters in his chest, become his reality and his senses. Elfman starts screaming in pain, and Mirajane tells Freed to stop and that Elfman can't fight anymore. Freed ignores her and attacks Elfman with Dark Écriture: Fear and Dark Écriture: Suffering.[1][3]
