The Seven Deadly Sins were brought to the realm by a dimensional warp. which teleported them to the realm.
As Hawk went missing, they splitted up for the search. Meliodas and Elizabeth, acting together, came across with a martial art tournament at a riverside town. They decided to join the match as they found that the second prize was Hawk’s “Balor’s Magical Eye”.
Meliodas advanced to the final as planned. However, his opponent Plumpy the cat thief acted out of everyone’s expectation, making him the champion instead of the first runner-up.
Elizabeth: What should we do now…?
Meliodas: Claim the prize first.
Stepping onto the podium, Meliodas raised the container with the giant red snapper and received the applause from the audience. Next, he went to Plumpy, who had left the town after the ceremony, with Elizabeth.
Plumpy: Boohoo...My red snapper...I really want it...
To their surprise, Plumpy curled up herself and sobbed like a cute innocent child. Sympathetic, Elizabeth crouched down and rubbed her head as if caressing a child.
Elizabeth: Don't be disappointed. You want this fish, right?
Plumpy: Huh? Y-Yes! But I lost and it’s yours...Boohoo...
Elizabeth: Would you like to trade the prize with us?
Elizabeth: Of course. Actually we want second prize so much. It’d be perfect if we can exchange it with you.
Plumpy: Whoa! You two are so nice!! It’s so strange of you to give up on such delicacy. Hehe, I’ll take it then!
All of a sudden, a yell sounded behind Meliodas and Elizabeth. As the bushes rustled, the yell came into the light and posed battle postures, revealing three figures smaller than they expected. The uninvited guests were actually the triplets of the cat thieves!
Biggie: What a brilliant question! Let me solve your mystery!
Twinkle: We’re the night walkers of Ali Baba’s Cat Thieves!
Tristan: Our goal is to snatch all the treasures in the world! We’re the triplets!
Biggie: The intel collector——Biggie!
Twinkle: The treasure collector——Twinkle!
Tristan: The big brain——Tristan!
While the triplets were making their grand entrance, Meliodas ignored them and came to Plumpy with the fish.
Biggie: Don’t ignore us——!!
Biggie: Let’s battle and prove our strength...Twinkle, Tristan, GO!
Before Plumpy could give Meliodas the “Balor’s Magical Eye”, the triplets had pounced over to fight her.
Elizabeth: Please stop fighting. You kittens can share the fish...Hmm, they’re not listening...
Meliodas: Just leave them be. They’ll stop once they get tired.
Meliodas: “Someone's coming...This one seems more powerful than them.”
The speaker——Fist took a leap from afar and landed on the triplets, knocking them out with his well-built body. This muscular teenseemed to be a friend of Plumpy.
Fist: You two hurt Plumpy! Unforgivable!
Fist assumed Meliodas and Elizabeth as the attackers as he saw Plumpy lying on the ground. Next second, he attacked them angrily.
Elizabeth: Meliodas, watch out——!
The laid-back Meliodas blocked Fist’s punch single-handedly.
Meliodas: Why are you attacking us?
Fist: Don’t be cocky!
Too angry to be reasoned with, Fist struck again with all punches aiming at Meliodas’s fatal parts, who dodged easily. Meanwhile, Meliodas began to fight him as he was intrigued.
Meliodas: Haha, what a decent punch. Looks like I can't drop my guard too!
The battle was in a tie at first, but Meliodas displayed his remarkable strength very soon. As he was too fast to keep up with, Fist soon lost the upper hand.
While Fist was occupied with the battle, Elizabeth went to Plumpy.
Elizabeth: Are you alright? Did you get hurt?
Plumpy: Hmm...I’m fine, but I’m hungry...
There was nothing wrong on Plumpy except that her stomach was growling. Amused and relieved, Elizabeth brought some fruit nearby and fed them to Plumpy.
Plumpy: Nom nom...Yummy...Thank you so much. I feel better now. Oh, who is Fist fighting with?
Elizabeth: Don’t worry. Meliodas won’t harm the innocents. Fist will be fine.
Meliodas’s unconcerned attitude pissed Fist off even more. With his extraordinary nose and ears, Fist managed to grab his arm and threw a heavy punch at his abdomen.
Much as Meliodas wanted to fight back, he had to take the punch, for the collateral damage might hurt Elizabeth and Plumpy nearby.
This angry punch contained all Fist’s strength, blasting Meliodas all the way to a fountain in the town.
Elizabeth hurried to find him by following the destruction track.
Elizabeth: Meliodas? Where are you?
Meliodas: Elizabeth, I’m here.
Elizabeth: Meliodas! Are you alright?
Meliodas: Just some scratches.
Fist: About that...
At this moment, Fist came over with a face of guilt, bowing at Elizabeth and Meliodas.
Fist: Plumpy told me everything. It was the triplets who fought her, not you. Plus she’s not hurt at all. I’m so sorry for the misunderstanding.
Meliodas: It’s alright. The battle was fun.
Plumpy: Hehe, I'm so happy to see the reconciliation. Right! Here is the second prize you want.
Plumpy gave "Balor's Magical Eye" to Elizabeth while Meliodas gave the huge red snapper to fist. After the exchange, Plumpy and Fist waved goodbye and left.
Next second, Elizabeth glimpsed at a creature sprinting over behind Meliodas.
Hawk pounced into Elizabeth’s embrace, surprising her and Meliodas.
Hawk: Are you piggies alright? I’m so worried.
Meliodas: Shouldn’t it be our line?
Elizabeth: Hawk-chan, where have you been? Everyone is looking for you.
Hawk: I didn’t know either. I was in a strange place when I woke up, but I, the captain of Knighthood of Scraps Disposal, was not panicked at all!
Hawk: I realized that I lost the gift from Merlin. Then I remembered that I might have lost it when I got bitten by an alpaca.
Hawk: I tracked its scent all the way to here and I saw you two!
Hawk babbled his adventure once he saw Meliodas and Elizabeth, but the two were still delighted to see him.
Meliodas: You crazy pig. Anyway, it’s good to see you back in one piece.
Elizabeth: He’s just like you, Meliodas. You always do crazy things.
Hawk: Exactly! Elizabeth is right!
The three of them went back to where Merlin was. On the way back, they ran into the other fellows. At the end, they reunited and returned to their world with Merlin's teleporting magic, resuming their great journey.
