The 21th chapter of Claymore by Norihiro Yagi, first published in the May 2001 issue of Shonen Jump.
Teresa realises how strong Priscilla is and begins to fight harder. Now on the losing end, Priscilla wonders why she can no longer keep up, for Teresa is the "bad guy" who needs to be defeated. Just as Teresa is about to take Priscilla's head, Irene steps in, blocking her sword. Noel and Sophia also leap into the fight, but Noel is kicked away into a building and Sophia is slashed. Though Priscilla disapproves of a five-on-one fight, she agrees to let the others aid her. They all release their Yoki and begin to fight Teresa. Despite this, Teresa is able to evade their attacks and severely wound Irene. Distraught, Priscilla tries to help her, but she is commanded to help Noel and Sophia. All three of them are soon down without Teresa having to release her Yoki, and Irene realises she has misjudged Teresa's strength again.
