Battle Arena Toshinden 3
Story by J-M
End of Master
"You are fools to challenge me!" Uranus said with a smile. Kayin and Eiji looked at each other, knowing they must not loose this Battle. Eiji simply smiled and started running in Uranus direction. Jumping in the air and starting an air drop kick, Uranus simply dodged by flying overhead with the ability of her special armour with wings. Kayin, quickly ran under her and started a deadly raise. Before receiving any damage by both fighters, Uranus shot both with energy arrows, stopping them in mid-air. Crashing on the ground, Kayin and Eiji realized this battle will be a hard one. Kayin looking at Uranus, screams "The Himitsu Kessha will be destroyed by us !!" "Hahaha... It is you who will be killed today!" was heard from the dark corner of the Arena. "Who's there ?!" asked loudly Eiji. Uranus gasping "Master, I don't need your help!" "I do what I want, my servant." said a beautiful woman dressed in white and blue. Walking slowly in the middle of the arena, she simply said one word to Kayin, "Die".
Kayin, building his rage, started to run directly at her. Eiji turned
to attack also but was hit in the back by another energy arrow by Uranus.
Eiji, landing on his chest in pain, could only see his best friend being
hit by high energy sabres made by Master powerful magic. Kayin landed on
the floor rolling in pain, now could only see Master floating slowly towards
him, hearing her laughing lightly. "Poor stupid man, your powers are nothing
against mine." said Master with a smile. "I'm called Master because
I'm the master of life and death. now you die!" Raising both her
hands in mid-air, a giant blue energy sword formed. Kayin, too weak to
move could only watch in horror his own death. Eiji screamed at Kayin
to move but knew Kayin could not. Master smiled and quickly change expression.
"What ?!" said Master as her face quickly lost all colours.
Master looked at her chest. Between her breast, was a blade of a
giant sword coming out of her thorax. "You have killed my master and taken
his name, made me a traitor of the Himitsu Kessha and tried to kill my
only daughter." said a giant man wearing a mask over his mouth. "
Gaia...." Master said as she slumped on the floor. Removing his sword from
the body of Master, Gaia looked at Kayin saying "Thank you for saving my
daughter." Kayin looking up, could only smiled and fall inconstant
from the pain. Uranus still flapping her wings in mid-air could only looked
in horror at Gaia who just killed her best friend, her lover, her master...
"NOOO!!!" screamed Uranus while diving directly in Gaia doing the fire
hawk manoeuvre. Eiji could only do one last move, his desperation
to save Gaia who was his old enemy. Slashing Uranus in mid-air with
every once of energy left in him, Eiji could only see the sorrow of Uranus
in her eyes. Landing on his feet, hearing the body of Uranus smashing
on the hard ground behind him, Eiji truly wished he didn't killed her.
Drenched in blood, he looked at the body, he then knew he had killed her
with his sword.
Gaia looked at Eiji in sadness "Kill or be killed, that's the Toshinden way.". Eiji walk and stood directly in front of Gaia. Gaia wondered if Eiji was about to challenge him in a fight to the end. "Thank you, my friend." said Eiji, looking at his once arch-enemy. Gaia laugh loudly and then grabbed the inconstant Kayin and put him over is shoulder. "Let's go home!" said Gaia to Eiji.
From a distance, in a tower, Sho was watching everything. "I could kill
your brother from here." said a man dressed all in black. "Shut up,
Vermilion, I will kill my brother when the time is correct. We must
report to Babel what happened here. said angrily Sho. "Yes, er..
Master" said Verm to Sho. Sho, quickly walked away not amused.
It's been 6 months since Master and Uranus were killed by Gaia and Eiji. Abel was sitting in his throne, starring at his fists. Turning slowly his head, he sighted. Since he made the coupe last year and got rid of most of the old masters, he gained so much, but also lost so much. He started thinking about the past, when he manage to frame Gaia for killing the old ones. Gaia manage to escape before the new masters could kill him. Only Gaia and Chaos remain alive from the old ones. Their guardian, Veil, chained inside the dungeon, probably just a skeleton by now, was also one of the old organization who tried to stop the new blood to gain power. Chaos, also locked up somewhere in the castle, was now only a mad man now, his mind twisted by all the experiments done to him by Miss Till and her scientists.
"Why the gloomy face, my love?" said Miss Till, entering the throne
room. "Till... look at us... our thrones... when we decided to become in
power, we thought we were unstoppable. Beside me, stands 3 empty
chairs, never to be filled ever again!". "Master, Uranus and Cupid died
because they were weaklings! Not like us.. We are strong, powerful and
intelligent." said Till.
"Master and Uranus died because they were careless about Gaia. Cupid, for falling in love with one of our enemies, I had no choice to kill her." replied Abel unhappy. Looking at the last throne to his left, he said one word "Sho...". Miss Till approached Abel and gave him a small hug and kissed him on the forehead. "You are the only one I ever trusted, Till...Please never make me change my feelings for you, my love" said Abel while hugging her strongly back.
"Hrm.. What a tender moment this is..." said Sho, hiding in the shadows
of some curtains.
"Are you mocking us, Sho??" ask angrily Abel. ‘Of course not, my lord, sometimes, I miss my times with Cupid and when I see both of you together, I get all warm inside." Replied Sho, walking slowly toward them. "It's a shame she had to fall in love with Kayin and you went and killed her without telling me about it.., but I guess it was for the best." Abel looking straight at Sho "and... you have a problem with that?" "No... of course not..." smiled Sho.
"Anyway, I came here because I recruited new talent for us. Since Foo got killed last year by Eiji, I think it was time to recruit more help. Please come meet them, I am sure you will like them." Abel smiled and sat quietly. "Show them to me" he asked. Sho turned his head and screamed a few commands out loud and then the main doors opened. Entering the room were men and women in strange costumes. "Ahh... some I already know of you, welcome, my new subjects. Please introduce yourself to me and Miss Till". Sho moved quietly in front of them and asked the group to divide themselves in two groups. ‘Theses are our new assassins, my lord." A tall skinny man, all dress in blue, with a giant sickle moved in front first. With a big french accent, he spoke " My name is Soutz, infiltration specialist". "Tau is my name and tracking is my game" said a giant muscle Indian. ‘Him, he is Ataha, from South Africa, a very silent killer, never speak a single word, specialist in jungle warfare". said Sho. Miss Till smiled "Toujin! Long time no see!" A Japanese man in orange, wearing a strange demon mask nod his head and lightly laughed. "Yes, Miss Till, it will be a real pleasure to work for you again".
"And you?" ask Abel to a small young teenage girl. "My name is Cuiling, I am Foo's Grand-daughter." said the young women dressed in the same uniform has Foo. Abel smiled and ask her to come close to him. She did and stood silently beside him. "Mmm.. I didn't know Foo had any family left alive... You know, I can arrange it that you can kill the one who murdered your grandfather. His name is Eiji Toudoukan". Her eyes lighted up with rage the second she heard the name. "Yes... please... that would most pleasing for me to do my oath of revenge for my grandfather death.".
Suddenly, a loud bang rang in the room. Everyone turned and look from where the noise came from. Standing there, was Vermillion. "You need none of them, Abel.. You know I am the only one you need." Verm screamed in anger. "Vermillion, do I sense jealousy?" asked Sho. "I need all of you, my enemies are powerful and dangerous, maybe even more than some of you!" said Abel. "Bah! No one cannot be killed by me!" Vermillion screamed. "Mmmm... oh really... how about Eiji?" Sho said smiling. Vermillion grinned and backed away.
"Anyway, we also have new fighters to assists us now!" Sho said while
turning back to Abel.
"This is Leon and Ten Count, they are old student of the same martial school I attended too. They know the same techniques as Eiji and Kayin. They should be lots of help defeating them.
This is Racheal Curtis. An excellent fighter, tested her myself. And Last, I ask someone to join our merry group." Abel opened his eyes wide open as a man in armour and a giant sword entered the room. "Balga?" "Sho convince me that with your help, I could get rid at last of my old rival, my cousin Duke Saint-Clair." Balga said, removing his helmet.
Abel smiled and laughed loudly "My new friends, we will destroy everyone who oppose us with out any worries now! Everyone shall receive what they deserve in time, I promise you all! Now, please make yourself all comfortable in my castle, please see my servants for anything you need!" said Abel extremely happy about all his new recruiters. "I also got a surprise for you, my love, please follow me to my test room for robots" said Miss Till smiling. Abel smiled even more "What did your little mad scientists created this time?" asked Abel, amused. "Oh... a little present to send to one of old friends who betrayed us, named Rungo." relied Till while leading Abel out of the room.
She was the most beautiful woman he had ever saw in his entire life and she was his. She was lying beside him, so silent, eyes closes, lips so moist and giving a small smile, her long blond hair all spread out over her pillow, she was almost a goddess. Eiji stared smiling at Sonya, who was beside him in his bed. He knows her secret but he does not care or think about it. Her secret that even herself don't know about. He moved his left hand and started stroking her hair softly and then kissed her softly on her forehead. "Time to wake up, my love.." he said softly while putting one hand behind her head and raising it. Her eyes opened softly and she smiled even more. "Hi.. Slept well?" she asked. "Of course... how can I sleep badly when I got you beside me?" Eiji replied while kissing her softly on the lips. ‘What time is it?" Sonya asked while raising her head to check the clock. "What does it matter? Let's relax today, only you and me, ok?" said Eiji while caressing her breasts with his hands and mouth. "Sure... sounds good to me." moaned Sonya softly.
A few hours later, the doorbell ranged. Eiji opened the door slowly
with out even looking in the peephole. Suddenly, the door slammed opened
loudly, pushing Eiji away and making him land on his back flat. "Shit!"
screamed Eiji out loud! Gazing up quickly, he saw only a blade of a sword
coming directly for his head. He had only a third of a second to react,
but that was time enough for him to dodge the blade. The sword it the floor
hard and splintered the hardwood on impact. "Damn it! Kayin! Look what
you did to my floor!!!!!!!!!" said angrily Eiji getting up quickly on his
feet. Kayin was standing there smiling "Mmm... small price to pay to keep
you always on your toes!" "Want some coffee, Kayin?" asked loudly Sonya
from the kitchen .
"Sure, like always, black and 2 sugar!" replied Kayin sitting on the sofa in the living room.
Eiji sat beside him and punched him in the arm "What the early morning work out?"
Kayin's face changed emotions quickly "I ... heard rumours... bad rumours..
I think we should check them out" said Kayin, looking at the floor. "What?
What rumours?" asked Eiji worried.
"... Master and Uranus were not the only leaders of the organizations. And the others are even more powerful them." said Kayin, grasping his sword hard. "Stronger? ... sheesh.. I guess we will need help from Gaia and others.. I'll try to contact Ellis then, and ask if she knows anything about this.." said Eiji sighting. "There you go, Kayin." Sonya said while giving a hot cup of coffee to her friend. "Guys? Why the long face.. We always won in the past, we will again, don't you worry!" smiled Sonya, only dressed in a long over sized shirt. Eiji grabbed her and hugged her "I hope so.. I am getting tired of always fighting almost to the death". "Kill or be killed, that the old master taught us, Eiji.. It's the facts... even if we hate it.. It's the Toshinden way... our way.." said Kayin drinking the coffee slowly. "Yes... I know... please don't remind me.. So, you want to stay for lunch or not, Kayin?" asked Eiji trying to change conversation. "Free food? Of course!" laughed Kayin.
"Davvvvvvvvvviiiiiiiddddddd!!!!!!!" whined Naru. "Naru! NO! I told you
before, NO!" said David grabbing his gun and hiding it in his long sleeved
coat. "Come on! I want to see him too! Plleeaaassseee!!!!!!!!!!!" Naru
continued to whine. David turned around and crouched to be eye level with
the little 5 year old girl "Naru... Judgement is still very dangerous..
Only me can talk to him, with out him going berserk... he is... mentally
unstable and I want to help him... When I found him in the forest, all
tortured and disfigured, he was almost like a wild animal...
Only by being nice to him and taking care of him, I gained his trust... That is why I am teaching himself to defend himself with weapons so he can never be tortured again.. Understand?" said David. "If you think it was not dangerous, do you think I would not bring this gun along with me as protection?? ... oh, and please, if Miss Till or anyone from the orphanage ask where I am, tell them I am gone hunting for food in the forest. Ok?" Asked David while hugging Naru. She looked sad but then gave David a big hug back and smiled "Ok.. You can count on me!" replied Naru.
David knew it was dangerous to leave the orphanage in secret. He laughed
to himself, if only the cops knew what is going inside their. Miss Till...
The bitch.. Forcing the kids to become robbers, killers, assassins.. He
wanted to stopped her but knew he was still not strong enough. He thought
of going to the police, but knew that would put Naru in danger. Walking
silently in the forest, he arrived to the old abandoned shack where he
was hiding Judgement. Davis started to think to himself "Poor man... the
only word he could say.... "Judgement" So, I called him that... Knowing
that he was judge for something and almost killed... They poured battery
acid on his face... and left for dead in the forest alone. but he survived
his ordeals but became insane from the pain. When I found him, hiding like
a child in my secret old shack. He was so scared.... I was scared too..
He was so huge and so inhuman. He didn't want me to see his face, so I
gave him my old hockey mask. Never took it off once since that day.
Slowly, I showed him I could help him... make him happy again. He loves
it when I play my old violin for him... But I was so scared for him, that
whoever who tried to kill him find out he was still alive, they would finish
I showed him how to fight with the old chainsaws I stolen from the orphanage. I just pray he never loose control and kills someone innocent." David entered slowly the rundown shack and notice it was empty. He panic for a second and quickly run behind the old shack to the creek a dash away. There, he saw the giant man with the hockey mask sitting on a large flat rock looking at the sun shining threw the trees. David sighted and smiled "That's where you are!" said softly to Judgement. Judgement turn his head quickly and gave a grunt and nodded his head. David sat beside him and opened his duffle back he carried with him. "You're hungry, I bet?" David ask
the big man. Like a child, Judgement eyes lighted up and smiled the best he could with his twisted mouth threw the mask. Grabbing a big sandwich, Judgement turned around, removed his mask and stared eating in a haste. David laughed and starred eating a sandwich also. David told himself "I'll always be there for you, Judgement." They sat there and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon quietly.
Rungo looked over his shoulders. He was now reassured that no one was
following him. Driving home in his truck, he could not wait to see his
wife and daughter again. It's been 7 months since
the organization warned him of retaliations against him for not killing Eiji or Kayin. It was not his fault that they were stronger than him. He was over confident when he fought Kayin. He never thought a punk kid like him could be so powerful with that sword of his. "With Eiji, I tried to be more prepared, but Eiji was even more stronger and whip the floor with me easily. I was stunned when they both spared my life because they knew I had family and warned me that the organization would not be happy about me failing. Everyday, I now live in fear for them and myself. Being disgraced and banished from the organization, they never let someone walk away without dying in some way in the same year." Rungo was thinking. He regrets so much joining the organization, never thinking the consequence of putting his family in danger. The money was so good and easy at first but the price he paid was too much. Now, his dear wife and daughter might die because of it.
He slowly pull up in his drive way and saw his daughter and wife talking
to a police woman.
Rungo came out of the truck and walked to them nervously. "Daddy!!" said his daughter running to him and hugging him. His wife looked received at the sight of her husband. Rungo recognized the woman, it was Tracy, a cop he dealt before with. She was always trying to link him to the organizations but never did. "Rungo, we must speak together alone." said Tracy looking very seriously. Rungo agreed and invited her inside the house. "Honey, please take Josy in the other room and give us some time alone, please." asked Rungo nicely to his wife. Rungo sat on a big chair beside where Tracy was standing and sighted. "You and your family are in immediate danger and you must leave with me and my new partner in 10 minutes. He is waiting one block away to take you in protected custody. We learned that something or someone was sent here this morning to kill you. We will protect you if you corporate with us and tell us everything you know about the organization. Rungo rubbed the back of his head and agreed. Suddenly, the door bell rang. Tracy looked confused, her partner was only to come in 10 minutes. Suddenly, the door exploded opened. And a giant man with a beard came in holding a garbage bag. The man was huge, even bigger than Rungo, wearing a giant rain coat over his body. Rungo got up quickly and grab one of his giant club that was hiding underneath the couch. "Tracy, get my family out of here!" screamed Rungo at Tracy. Tracy didn't wait a second, she dashed in the next room and went to rescue the woman and her daughter.
"Well... I have been waiting for you... do your worst!" screamed Rungo
at the bearded man. The man remained motionless. Rungo made a dash and
smashed his club the hardest he could on the man's head. "No one
can survive this! I killed him!" thought Rungo after seeing the man who
just went crashing threw the wall, his neck and head all bending not in
normal way. Standing there, silently, huffing and puffing, Rungo was glad
in some way he killed the bearded-man. But to his horror, the beard man
slowly got up and said one single word "terminate!" While getting up, the
coat dropped on the floor and revealed the real nature of the bearded man.
It was a robot!!!!!
Written on the chest of the robot was "Alex #1". The robot opened the bag and pulled out a giant spiked club that was also a Gatling gun.
Rungo panicked and grabbed the robot in a bear hug and lifted him with
all his strength and then threw it outside the house. The robot was at
least slow in movement, Rungo had this advantage over it. But the robot
also got it's advantage. His club was a Galting gun with small missiles.
The robot started shooting everywhere toward the house. Every windows,
every walls, everything started to exploded on contact of the bullets of
the Gatling gun. Rungo tried to dodge what he could, but was hit in the
left arm and leg. Rungo screamed in agony. He notice he was starting to
bleed heavily. He then heard his wife and daughter screaming. He turned
around and saw them standing in the street with Tracy seeing him on the
ground bleeding. "Stay back!!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!!! Run away!!!!!!" He screamed.
The robot ignored them and walked slowly to Rungo to finish him. Tracy
grabbed her billy clubs and attacked the robot. Tracy manage to hit the
robot quickly but doing no serious damage. The robot turned and tried to
hit Tracy with his other hand. Tracy was suddenly hit by the fist when
the robot thorax started to spin like a tornado. She landed hard on the
ground, probably with a few crack ribs. She cough in pain and looked at
the robot still going for Rungo. "Eiji.... we need you... " she softly
said. Suddenly, a loud bang was heard from the other side of the street.
It was her new partner, Nagisa.
He hit the robot with his big colt gun right between the eyes. The robot stopped moving and analysed the damage to its optics. Nagisa moved closed to it and continued shooting until he ran out of bullets. The robot head moved jerkily after each hit and was taking lots of damage. The robot's club moved and fired. Nagisa manage to dodge them by jumping highly in the air and reloaded his gun. Landing beside the robot, he unleashed the new rounds again in the head. Tracy and Rungo were astonish by his bravery. Then, a loud boom was heard. The robot was now on its back, fizzing and cluncking loudly, the head was almost destroyed now, broken circuits dying slowly. "Stupid machine!" Nagisa said. He walked slowly to Tracy and smiled "Don't move, ambulances are on the way!"
Silently, Abel was looking at a monitor, his hands were crushing the
armrests of the chair he sat on. "Damn!!!!!!!! Rungo was suppose to die!"
He stood up and called for Cuiling, Souzt, Balga and Racheal in the intercom.
They all entered and kneeled before him. "I got all missions for you. Soulzt,
you are to leave at once to kill Ellis. Racheal and Cuiling, find out everything
you can on the one who saved Rungo's life. Balga, I will need your help
tomorrow, so, please make yourself ready and Cuiling. They nodded and started
to leave the room. "Cuiling, a minute of your time?" asked Abel. "Yes,
master." said Cuiling a bit scared. Alone together, Abel walked closely
to the young woman and kissed her deeply. She was shocked by his advance
but remained motionless. Abel then grabbed and felt her breasts. She still
"Ahhhh... sweet thing, forgive my actions, this was a test to see how you are loyal to me." smiled Abel. If you would have objected my advance on you, I would have rapped you on the spot and probably killed you after. Cuiling looked at the floor, feeling so defenceless.
"I see you are not wearing the claws of your Grandpa. Why is that? I heard it's tradition to pass on the weapons on to different generations of family." asked Abel, curious. "I would have been honoured to have my grandfather's claws but they were stolen." replied Cuiling in anger. "By who?" asked Abel, now intrigued. "By Bayhou..." said Cuiling ashamed. "By Bayhou!??? Foo's monkey pet????" laughed loudly Abel. " My lady, I am surprise of this, you should have the skills to retrieved them." said Abel, sitting on his throne and still laughing a bit. "It's not that easy... the monkey learned my grandfather's skills and techniques by always watching him practising. I lost track of the monkey when it stolen Foo's claws and manage to hide itself from me. I know it's always close to me, watching me, mocking me..." Cuiling said depressed and more ashamed now than before. "Poor girl, if I can help, I'll will... don't worry about it!" said Abel who moved closer to her and started kissing her neck and undressing her slowly. Cuiling could only say one phrase "Thank you, master."
"Sonya, are you coming?" asked Eiji outside the entrance door. "Why
must I see Doctor Jerry? I am fine!" whined Sonya "Baby, you know you must
see him once a month. This sessions are for your well being. Maybe one
day, you will remember your past." Eiji whispered to her.
"Come on, they are waiting for us." Eiji said while entering the office. "Why I am always the only patient when I come here??? I would like to know why??" asked loudly Sonya in discontent. "Stop acting like a child and give me your coat." sighed Eiji. She sat down and frowned. She loved Doctor Jerry but always felt strange around him. He is the one who saved her life. He was the first face she can remember, after waking up from her coma. She can't remember her past what so ever. She was told that the organization had kidnapped her from Russia somewhere, brainwashed her and made her an assassin. Eiji was the one who stopped her and brought her to Doc. Since that day, she started a new life, falling in love with Eiji, her rescuer. She wished she could know her past, but didn't really cared about it. The hypno-treatments she
was receiving from Doc, she hated them, always falling asleep and waking up strangely after a few hours later, with no progress what-so-ever.
‘Ahhh... Sonya, please come in my office." asked Doc standing at the door to the left of the small waiting room. She got up followed by Eiji, who smirk at Doc. Doc understood the smirk and nodded. "Please lay on the table and look directly at the light" ask Doc. "Hey, no questions about how I have been? If I have been having headaches? If I eat all my veggies?" snapped Sonya. "My, aren't you a bit bitchy today?" laughed Doc while putting a pillow under her head. "She is been like this since we discovered that the organization is back." said Eiji while looking worried at Sonya. "Of course I am in a pissy mood, they are the onnnnnnnnnneeeeee...e....e..........." Sonya said while she was being deactivated in secret by Doc. Removing his hand from being her head softly, he smiled at Eiji "I think she got some corrupted files in her CPU. I will need to do a complete system check on her." Eiji looked at Sonya who was now starring at the ceiling directly, her eyes so dark with out any life. "I hate seeing her like this... reminds me she is just a robot...." said Eiji. "Please don't ever see her only as a robot, Eiji... she is more than just that.. she is my creation, my daughter... I devoted 7 years of my life to created her.... I was a fool not to realize that when the organization funded her, they would programmed her to be a killer.. She was originally created to be a companion, a caregiver..." said Doc in regrets. "When you defeated her in fighting, you thought you killed her... she was died... no more signs of life. I was able to escape that day the organization and you saw me going to her body and opened her up." "Yay... was a chock for me, seeing this beautiful woman that just tried to kill me, was a android. When you removed her head, I was sure you just decapitate her..!" laughed Eiji. "Yes... but you helped me retrieve my creation... and with your help, bringing her here to my secret lab and repair and reprogrammed her like she was suppose to be. When I ask you if you wanted to be her lover, you were so shy." laughed in return Doc. "Of course! Sheesh! My God! What a thing to ask!" said Eiji turning red. "Well, I knew you liked her and I knew she would be safe with you... it was only logical. I saw her as my daughter... it would have been too weird for me..." Doc said while looking at Sonya. "She is so precious for me... Thank you for taking care of her.." said Doc while undressing her. "How is the sex? She is working fine? Right?" asked Doc. "What??? er... everything is good... good... even perfectly.." said Eiji now totally embarrassed. "Come on, nothing to be shy about, I built her, remember?" said Doc while removing the last of her clothing.
Pressing one hidden button in her navel, a panel opened from her stomach, revealing her innards. Circuits, cables and wires were blinking like a Christmas tree. Doc put on some special glasses and lowered his head close to the opened stomach. Taking a small tool, he started to fiddle with a few circuits. Sonya's head and neck moved a bit from the thickening of her circuits. Even sometimes, her eyes blinked when some her of circuits were being disconnected from her thorax. Eiji was sitting uneasy watching the Doc removing parts by parts slowly. Eiji never liked seeing what he was seeing. He had fallen truly in love with her, even knowing she was artificial. Sonya acted like any human he ever known. She didn't knew what she was and it was a secret only him and her creator knew. She was programmed to be his partner in combat at first but her programming grew with time on it's own and she acted sentient. Doc and him agreed to make monthly appointments to always check her up. Like any machines, she needs to be maintained.
Doc hooked up some cables inside her stomach to her CPU and started
to type rapidly on his keyboard beside the table. Sonya started to talk
in binary codes loudly and reporting system checks. Now, she sounded like
a robot. Eiji grinned and looked away. "I'll go grab something to eat outside,
ok?" asked Eiji to Doc. Doc nodded but then turn his head "Oh.. Could you
take with you my new assistant outside? WENDY!!!!!!!!!!! Come here for
a second!" said loudly Doc. A young pretty woman with short brown hair
entered the room quietly. "Wendy, this is Eiji, the one who saved Sonya."
said Doc still typing. Eiji shook her hands and was strangely memorized
by the pretty woman. "Hi, nice to meet you." said Wendy who suddenly turned
around and looked at Sonya who was gutted opened on the table. She frowned
and went outside the room with Eiji. "I hate seeing Sonya like that...
Doc should show her more respect in some way... She is not just a car or
a computer..." mumble Wendy to herself. "I hope when he built me, he was
more delicate with my systems." she said loudly. "Built you?? You are an
android too???" asked Eiji shocked. "Yes, been activate 3 weeks ago. I
still have bugs in my systems, that is why Doc want me to socialize with
you right now, to see how I handle humans apart from him." "... you are
really an android?? Like Sonya??" asked again Eiji in disbelief. "Yes ,
here, see my circuits!" said Wendy pulling her shirt off, exposing her
breasts. Suddenly, a panel opened right above her breasts and Wendy smiled
"See... some of my systems are even more advanced than Sonya.".
Eiji stood there, starring more at her breasts than her insides. Doc entered the room and saw them standing, Wendy exposing her breasts and circuits to Eiji. "Wendy... Shit, I need to install in you a program to make you more discreet...." said Doc laughing. Eiji turned all red and stared at the floor. "Eiji, Sonya will be ready in a few hours, I am making copies of her files now and that will take some time. Let's go sit in the living room and relax at the mean time. And Wendy, please close your panel and cover yourself, ok?" said Doc, kissing Wendy on the forehead. Eiji sight and followed them in the living room.
"Yayyyy!!!!!!" screamed Ellis. She again did almost the impossible.
She threw 17 knifes blindfolded, up sided down while spinning and manage
to hit all the targets. The crowd got wild and screamed in excitements!
She did one final trick for them and went inside her tent after to relax.
She sat in her small chair and looked at a photo of her father and mother
holding her as a baby. She gasped a long breath and collapsed on her bed
still wearing her white dress. Resting her eyes, she was about to fall
in deep sleep when she heard a very soft footstep. She opened her eyes
quickly and saw a small arrow spinning straight for the head. She dodge
it by jumping of the bed. She then saw the back of a tall skinny clown
running away from her tent. She got in pursuit, grabbing her two fighting
knives she always have attached to her legs hiding under her dress. She
ran between 2 big trucks and lost him. She knew he was around but were.
It was obvious he was an assassin sent by the organization. She wish her
father was there right now to protect her. Gaia would crush that
assassin with no problem. Ellis jumped high and manage to climb on top
of one of the truck. Slowly, she walked silently and saw her attacker removing
his clown costumes and grabbing his giant sickle. He turned his head and
shot another small arrow from a small crossbow attached to his left arm
directly at her. She dodge it easily but she knew that was a move to give
him more time to be prepare. He jumped beside her and slashed his sickle
at her. She dodge the sickle and attacked him in return. Her knives were
no match for him.
"My little girlie, I will kill you!" said Soultz with his tick french accent.
David was walking in the forest, moving toward the circus just outside
the outskirts of it. He promised he would buy some cotton candy for Judgement
and Naru. He left his chainsaw at the cabin, thinking he would not need
it. Getting closer, he heard all the noise from the carnival, feeling like
a kid again. Arriving from behind the circus, he saw all the animals resting
in there cages. He sneak past the carnies and went toward the tents to
peak inside them. Suddenly, he heard a clashing of metal coming from above
him. He say a cute teenage girl fighting a strange man all in blue holding
a giant sickle. He knew this was for real, not a practice circus act.
He had to act quick, the girl was no match for him. He drew his gun and waited the right moment.
Ellis tried her best to hit Suztl, but his damn sickle protected him from her attacks. She knew she was at a lost in the fight. Tears started to come out her eyes. "Damn it!!!!! I can't die now! Father!!!!! I need you!!!!" she was screaming in her head. Then it happened. Sulzt jumped in mid air with his sickle and started to spin. There was nothing she could do to stop him from killing her. But luck was there for her. Suztl suddenly screamed in pain when a loud band was heard from beside the truck they were fighting on. Suzlt went crashing on the ground beside the truck. He was in terrible pain, grabbing his side. He had been shot. Ellis turned around and saw a young man standing there, with his gun pointing were Suztz was. The man was dressed in a old dirty long trench coat with blue hair, shaking from the action he just did. "Is... is he died? " asked the young man. Ellis looked at Suzlt direction but she saw no one. "No... he already retreated." she replied still stunned from the events. Ellis jumped down the truck and landed beside David "Thank you... you saved my life.." she said. David hide the gun. in his coat and took Ellis by the arm. "It's not safe here, they will send more assassins after you!" David said nervously. "I know a place where we can hide!"
Ellis was walking behind him, staring at his back. "Mmmm.... what is your name? Mine is Ellis.." "Ellis.. Gaia's daughter??? Man... no wonder they want you died!" said David in disbelieve. "Mine is David." "How do you know my father???" asked Ellis confused. "I heard all about him from Miss Till. She owns the orphanage where I live." "Are you working for the organization?" asked Ellis, her heart beating a mile a minute now. "Shit, of course not! I hate them! I am only staying there to protect Naru... a very little special girl, I am her only family." smiled David. "I'll protect you, don't worry... but first, I must warn you about my other friend, Judgement...." Talking softly, they walked side by side, in the forest heading quietly for David's secret cabin.
Mondo was sitting at the end of the long table drinking his tea quietly. At the other end, his guest, Miss Shizuku was also drinking her tea. "How is your tea?" asked Mondo nervously to the beautiful Japanese woman. She smiled and nodded delicately "Good..". Mondo was all thence and nervous, not his usual coolheaded ways. He looked at his own reflection in the tea and cough lightly. Shizuku was also feeling nervously, also starring at her tea. "May I ask you what brings you here, Miss Shizuku?" asked Mondo. Shizuku got up and walked beside the table until she was beside Mondo. She looked at him directly in his eyes and opened her mouth "Make love to me right now on this table, Mondo!" Mondo's jaw dropped and he got up, standing directly in front of her. She slowly opened her kimono, ravelling her naked body under it. Mondo perspired with nervousness and desire at the same time. Suddenly, he kissed her hard and started to unbuckle his pants. "Please... be gentle with me." moaned Shizuku while he kissed her neck and shoulders. "Yes, my love... all long we waited for this.." Mondo replied now completely butt-naked. "Ding-dong!" was heard ringing loudly inside the entire mansion. "Damnnnnn!!!!!!!! Who could this be at the main gate??????" Mondo growled. Shizuku was also quit displeased by this interruption. Both of them waited 3 years for this day of passion. The reason was this was the day that the eleven moon of Jupiter was in perfect alignment with the smaller moon of Mars and of Earth. It was believed to be the perfect day to consume each others body and soul, but in only happened once every 7 years.
Mondo bitched until he reached the main gate and opened it. Standing there was his cousin he didn't see for many years with a blue haired white American woman. "Nagisa!!!!!!!" said Mondo hugging Nagisa. Tracy was standing beside Nagisa, listening to the two tall men talking rapidly in Japanese, looking confused. She tugged on Nagisa shirt and ask him who was this handsome man. Mondo laughed lightly and introduce himself in English to Tracy. Mondo invited them inside his giant mansion and brought them inside the giant dining room. Standing naked at one end of the table, Shizuku was waiting impatiently for Mondo to come back to her alone. When she saw he had company, she quickly ducked under the table to grabbed her kimono and put her back on her body. Mondo looked around and didn't see Shizuku anywhere. He turned to Nagisa and Tracy if they wanted to sit down and have tea with him. They both agreed and sat on each side of the table. Mondo went to enter the kitchen when he notice Shizuku under the table with a look on her face of unpleasantly. He grinned and asked loudly if Nagisa and Tracy could come with him in the kitchen for a second to see his new stove. Nagisa and Tracy, a bit puzzled agreed and followed him in the kitchen, giving Shizuku the time to sit on the chair at the end of the table where she was drinking her tea before.
"That is a nice stove, Mondo... you should be proud!" said Tracy rolling her eyes a bit while entering the dinning room again. "Hello." said Shiziku softly to Tracy. Tracy turned her head and saw the beautiful Japanese woman in the kimono and blushed. Tracy felt she was in front of a princess or someone very important. "Hi, I am Tracy, nice to meet you." said Tracy sitting in her chair. "Nice to meet you too, Tracy, I am Shizuku, Mondo's future wife." replied Shizuku looking at Tracy seriously. Tracy was intimidated by her and called for Nagisa and Mondo to come back in the room. "Aaahh... Shizuku, how are you, my sister?" Nagisa said while hugging Shizuku. "Always good, brother." replied Shizuku happy. Mondo sat with them all around the table after giving them tea. "Why are you two here?" asked Mondo seriously. "The organization is back on it's feet and we learned that they are attempting to assassinate everyone who was link to them last year. This mean you, Mondo." said Nagisa drinking tea. Mondo sat there quietly and frowned "Mmmmmm it seems my work is not done. I will help you in any way I can, Nagisa. Please tell me more."
"Come one!!!!!!!! Let's dance!!!!!!!" said Sofia grabbing Eiji's arm. "Ok! Ok!" said loudly Eiji moving to the middle of the dance floor with Sofia. The dance music was booming loudly, spotlights flashing everywhere. Kayin was still at the bar trying to order a few drinks. "How do you feel?" asked Eiji at Sonya. "Super!!!!!!!! I don't know what Doc did, but I feel great!" said Sofia. Smiling, Eiji kissed deeply Sofia and hugged her hard "No matter what happens, I will always love you, Sofia." said Eiji. Sofia smiled back and said the same to him. :Eiji closed his eyes, while hugging Sophia tightly. He started to think about yesterday, when Doc was repairing Sophia. "Eiji, I reprogrammed a bit Sophia because some of her system were acting strangely. I think knowing the organization is back reactivated some of her old commands I could not delete. I hope Sophia's programming is good enough to suppress them. They encoded some commands in her system that are now fused with her vital systems. The only way to remove them would be a complete erase her positronic matrix. But this would kill the "Sophia" you know. I don't think I would have the heart to do it." Doc said while closing her main stomach panel.
Eiji's mind came back to the present when a girl bumped into Sophia. She turned around and excused herself and shook Sofia's hand. "My name is Racheal!" She then turned her head and said "Nice to meet you, Eiji Toudoukan." said the girl smirking an evil smile. Eiji's looked at the girl and looked at Sophia. Sophia's eyes were flashing and strange sounds came out of her mouth. "Mallllfunncctionnn... data... data error.. Mall..ff.." were the only words that made sense from Sofia. "Sofia!!!!!! What did you to her!!!" asked angrily Eiji, grabbing the girl by the throat. "Oooooooowwwwww!" screamed Eiji while being hit in the stomach by the girl with a strange two handed club. Eiji suddenly went flying in the crowd by a great electric pulse from the clubs she held jilted him. Eiji looked at the girl while getting up. "I scramble her data matrix with this small thingy in my hand." laughed the girl, now standing in a fighting pose.
"Ten count, Leon, finish him!" screamed Racheal while grabbing and putting over her shoulders Sophia who was now like a broken puppet. Now, the crowd stopped dancing and people started to screamed when they saw two men entering the room with 2 swords. Eiji got up and looked around for any weapons he could find. Before he could, he received an air kick in the mouth by Leon. Eiji crashed on the floor hard and spitted out some blood. "Eiji! You lost your speed since we last meet!" said Leon laughing. "Leon, I always hated you!" said Eiji angrily. "Our old sword-Master would be proud of you, Eiji, to be killed by your follow old classmates!" Ten count said behind Leon.
"Raoul, Leon! I hope you didn't forget me!" said loudly Kayin standing in the main door way of the now empty discotheques. Kayin started to run-dash attack on both of them while he thrown Eiji's swords to him. Both barely dodge his attack and ran on each side to surround him. Eiji stood beside Eiji after helping him up. "Are you able to fight?" asked Kayin to Eiji. Eiji suddenly started to be turned red and screamed a loud shout. Two giant fire balls formed in front of him and suddenly went extremely quickly to Leon. Leon caught by surprise was hit badly by the fireballs and was thrown threw the wall. " I guess that is a yes!" laughed Kayin at Eiji. "You take care of Raoul and I'll go rescue Sofia!" said Eiji quickly. "No problem!" Kayin replied making a stance directly in front of Ten-Count. Eiji ran out the discotheques to find Racheal and Sofia.
"Hey! Raoul! Ready to get your ass kicked?" ask Kayin pointing at Ten-Count. "The name is Ten-Count now! I always defeat my opponents after I count to ten!" said Ten-Count. "One last question.. Why the hell are you dress like Micheal Jackson??" laughed Kayin out loud. "It's my salutation to Micheal! After watching the way he dance, I used his techniques in my fighting style and I improved my skills dramatically!! Enough talk! 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10! Ready to die, Kayin?" Kayin Smiled "Round 1! Let's go!".
"Spinning kick!" screamed Kayin. Ten-Count was hit in the chest. Ten
Count got up and did a somersault jump kick and smack Kayin directly in
the face. Kayin laid on the floor half dazed "Not bad.... You win this
round... but I promise you, I win the next 2 ones!" Ten-Count started a
spinning whirlwind kick but Kayin dodged it and did a combo slashed to
Ten-Count. Ten-Count landed on the floor on his back in pain. He was covered
in blood now from the cuts he received.
He got up slowly and concentrated, he started to glow red. "Final round!" Kayin smiled. Kayin knew Ten-Count would be attempting his desperation move now. Ten-Count took quickly from his white jacket, smalls knifes and threw them at Kayin. Kayin, blocking all of them with his sword easily, knew the knives were a distraction for Ten-Count to close in on him. The minute he saw Ten-Count running toward him, Kayin did his Rage-Attack on him. Ten-Count never saw what hit him, all he knew, he was receiving slashes after slashes of Kayin's sword and then two great fireballs in his torso. Ten-Count went flying across the room and smashed against the wall.
Lying there, drenched in blood, all he could do was to die. "Game over, Raoul!" said Kayin looking at the dying man. "It's Ten-Counttttt....." said Ten-Count with his last breath. Kayin turned his attention to were Leon went threw the wall but could not find him "Shit! He escaped! I must go help Eiji now!"
Eiji was looking everywhere for Sofia. He cursed himself for being so careless. "Sofia!!!!!!" he screamed even he knew she could not reply. Finally, he saw Racheal who was putting Sofia in the back seat of a car. Sofia was still like a broken marionette, her head was bobbing if she was a broken doll. Racheal sensed Eiji coming and went on the defencelessly. Before Eiji could reached the car, 3 giant fireballs exploded in front of him. He looked up from where they originated. On top of a small building, he saw Sho who was carrying Leon on his shoulders. "Sho!!!!!" screamed angrily Eiji, who saw Racheal at the same instance get in the car and burned rubber to escape. Eiji started to run in the direction of the car the fastest he could but knew he could not do anything to stop them from escaping him.
Minutes later, Kayin arrived at the scene only to find Eiji smashing
his fists on the pavement, crying over Sofia. "Raoul is toast..."
said Kayin putting his left hand on Eiji's shoulders. "They will all die
for this!" growled Eiji. Kayin stepped back worried. He never saw Eiji
so angry and so powerful. Eiji didn't notice, but he was glowing almost
blue now. He got up and looked at Kayin "let's go kill them now!" "Wait!..
if they came after us, they might get at Ellis too... We must go see if
she is safe first!" Kayin said a bit scared of Eiji. Eiji's face turn to
mad to worried.
"Shit! You're right!!!!!! Let's go now!" They ran to Kayin's car and drove directly for the woods. "Sofia, I'll rescue you, don't worry!" said Eiji looking at the moon. "Eiji... I think you reached a new level of power..." Kayin said while driving. Eiji nodded and remained quiet for the rest of the trip.
Mondo was in deep sleep, sweat was still pouring out of him. Shizuku at his side, was the same. After 3 long years of waiting, they performed the ritual of mating. They both were glad Nagisa and Tracy agreed to go sleep at a nearby hotel. Mondo eyes suddenly opened and he raised his head sweaty. Moving his hand quickly, he manage to grab a long spear that was going to penetrate directly his heart. Standing beside the bed was a man wearing a mask a dressed in an orange costume. "You miss!!!!!! Now, my turn!" screamed loudly Mongo. Grabbing the end of the spear with his other hand, he started to spin the spear and released it, which that was still being held by Toujin. Toujin went flying threw the window in a loud crash. Shizuku woke up in a jolt, hearing the shout and crash. Mondo got up quickly, dressed and quickly grab one of the many poles he attached to the walls. Shizuku got up and dressed quickly her Kimono and grab her flute. Mondo signed at Shizuku he was going to jump threw the window after Toujin. He peered outside and saw certain disaster coming. Toujin was there standing, with a small cannon in his hand and fired. Mondo barely had time to turned around and cover Shizuku with his body when part of the wall and the entire window exploded.
Shizuku coughed from the smoke and quickly moved the unconscious Mondo on her side. He was hurt badly, many splinter was imbedded in his back. She got up and prepare to face the assassin. Toujin jumped up and climb the ledge of the room. He looked at Mondo and was satisfied with his job. He then looked for the female. "Where are you, little lady?" he asked, holding his spear in a trusting position. Slowly, he walk carefully in the smoking room and realize she was not on the floor, but on the ceiling. Looking up, he saw her jumping behind him, she had manage to held herself on the chandelier. Shizuku started to hit him repeatedly with her iron flute, breaking many of his back bones. Toujin screamed in pain and jumped outside her range. He turned around barely standing up and went for his cannon that was hiding in his backpack. Before he could fire again his cannon, he was again repeatedly hit in the back by a long pole. Mondo was now totally pissed. Mondo's pole was spinning so fast that it started to be on fire while hitting Toujin in the back. Mondo suddenly focussed all his "Chi" on one hit and screamed loudly. Shizuku was in choke after what she saw next. Toujin screaming in pain suddenly exploded, leaving only blood and bones everywhere. After a few moments after, Mondo was inhaling badly and collapsed. Shizuku, covered head to toes of Toujin's blood, ran quickly to call an ambulance.
"Shizuku.... Please come with us, we need to tell you something." said Nagisa with Tracy, standing beside him worried. Shizuku looked up and knew what he was going to say next. All of them, standing in the hospital hall, staring at the floor. "Mondo's dead..." Shizuku said "you don't have to tell me.... I knew his wounds were mortals..." She looked at both of them... "Why him?... Why did my beloved Mondo died?" she started to weep. Nagisa could only hug her hard and cry too. Tracy ran out of the hospital, tears pouring out, she screamed in horror. In one week, she saw two families get destroyed. Rungo died from his injuries 4 days ago, now Mondo. Tracy felt like she could die too. Both time, she could have prevented it if she manage to stopped the organization. Only if she was stronger, she told herself, stronger.
"She's been here!!" said Tau, smelling the dirt of the ground. "Great... that tells us where she is now!" said Vermilion unhappy. "I told them to send me instead of that idiot from France. I knew he would screw up!" "Stop your bitching and follow me!" the giant Indian said. Vermillion gripped a bit more and followed him inside the dense forest. Tau, using his tracking skill, he knew he would find them easily and kill them. "Shit... a spring!" Tau said grunting. "Verm, you go north, I go south. The minute any one of us two find them, kill them!" Verm agreed and proceeded north on his own. He always preferred working alone. He sneaked tree to tree, acting like almost a rat. He then saw a old cabin and heard voices. He sneak closely to the house and listened.
"Judgement! Don't be jealous!!!! She is my new friend!!! She want's to be your friend too!" David said frustrated with the big man. Judgement grunted angrily and ran out of the cabin screaming. "Damn.... !" David yelled. After a mile or two, Judgement stopped running and looked at his feet. "He is going to leave you forever for that girl, you know." said Vermilion walking slowly toward to Judgement. Judgement turned around and took out a small homemade grenade David constructed for him. "Wait!!!! I am a friend!!!! I am all alone too, outcast by everyone!" Vermilion said with sad puppy eyes.
"I know your pain! That boy discarded you for that girl... he does not care for you... not anymore! But, if you let me, I will be your new friend and take care of you.. I promise!" said Vermilion now very close to Judgement. "Look at my face! Did you see the giant scar in my face? A evil man did this to me called Eiji... He tried to kill me because I was different... like you are different too... Me and you, we need each other!" Judgement stared at Vermilion and pitied himself and Verm... why were people so mean to them, he would never understand. Verm took another step closer and hugged the big man wearing a hockey mask. Judgement started to cry like a small child. "Shhusssh... it's ok, Verm will take care of you... but first, I need one small favour.. You know the girl that was with that boy... can you show me where she is now.. I need to talk to her...?" Judgement grunted and nodded a yes. "Please take me to her.. We will make her pay for making you feel bad and stealing your old friend. Judgement's eyes light up and he grabbed his chainsaw he had attached to his back and started to walk toward the orphanage with Verm following him.
Ellis was sitting on an old bed with Naru starring at her. "Did you and David had sex?" the little girl asked. "What!!!!!!!!!?????" Ellis replied shocked! "Of course not! We just meet a few hours ago!" "Why are you here and not with him?" asked Naru. "Because he has a friend in cabin that frightened me and I could not stay there anymore." Ellis replied. "Oh.. You mean Judgement... what does he look like? Is he friendly?" Ellis turned around and looked slowly out side the window. "Oh no... not here too!" Ellis whispered to herself. She recognized Miss Till talking to David. She listened to the conversation after telling Naru to shut up.
"Where were you? You are suppose to build us some grenades for our next
attack." asked angrily Miss Till to David. "I was in the forest gone hunting."
replied David starring at the ground. Miss Till raised her small staff
and hit repeatedly David everywhere. Ellis wanted to scream but knew she
would only make things worst if she did. David could do nothing but received
his punishment. After his lesson, he got up slowly and went to the infirmary.
He stumble in the door and stood in the doorway, starring at another man in the infirmary. "What are you looking at?" asked Leon being taken care by an old nurse. "Nothing... sorry.." replied David who sat on the chair beside Leon. "Damn Eiji... I'll kill him next time!" Leon told himself out loud with frustration. "Eiji... is he that powerful?" asked David hearing the name.
"Fuck... he is a powerful bastard but not has powerful as me. He just got lucky, got me by surprise." Leon said will nursing his cuts. "Where is TenCount?" asked David. "Ggrrr... Kayin killed him!" "Died!!!!" asked again David surprised. "sheesh.... Eiji and Kayin are strong..." David said bewildered. Leon grunted and left the room. David smiled and hope to meet one day Eiji and Kayin. Ellis knocked at the door and entered the room while the old nurse was gone to get more bandages. "Are you ok?" she asked David. "Yes... and I think I know how we can escape from here now." smiled David.
"She is not here!" screamed Kayin to Eiji. "She was here... look, blood!" said Eiji fearing for the worst. "Mmmm... no! I am sure she is not dead.... look, an empty bullet cartridge. I wonder what happened... I hope Vermilion is not here." Kayin told Eiji who was on top of the trucks. Eiji examined the foot prints from the high ground and determine they went heading for the forest. What concerned him were the other foot-prints following the same trail. Before he could jump off the truck, he heard something zing by his head. He turned his head quickly to see from where it originated but saw nothing.
"Someone is in the woods.. He just tried to kill me by a small dart!" explain Eiji to Kayin. Kayin stared in the woods and concentrated. Eiji did the same. Suddenly, Fireballs torched the first few trees. They could hear someone screaming in pain that was hiding in one of the trees. They ran in the woods and followed the form of a man who was jumping trees from trees. The man was an expert in this environment. Suddenly, no more noise. Eiji and Kayin stop running and made no sound, trying to see where is the man located. A noise came out of a bush, Kayin jumped and was about to make a deadly raise attack. A small 5 year old girl came out of the bush. Kayin barely manage to stop his attack in time. "Who are you?" asked the girl. Kayin grabbed the little girl in his arms and started to turned around. "Eiji, can you handle the assassin? I need to get this little girl out of here or he'll kill her too!" Eiji nodded and saw Kayin escaped the woods.
Eiji knew the assassin was watching him closely, hiding perfectly in
the darkness of the woods.
He closed his eyes and listened to the silence. "Yay!!!!!!!" Eiji screamed while doing a flying spinning slash directly above him. His sword cut threw the branches easily until it hit some flesh and bones. Eiji landing on his feet perfectly, saw the assassin land hard on his back, clutching in pain his legs. The assassin was a black African dressed in traditional African hunting costume.
"My name is Ataha, and you are my prey!" said the man getting up holding 2 knives. Eiji nodded and started to run toward him doing a slash attack. Ataha used his knifes to protect himself but the hit was so hard from Eiji, he went flying directly in a tree hard. Eiji started a fireball attack now and blasted Ataha's knifes out of his hands. Ataha barely had the time to dodge another slash attack and shoot 3 darts with his blow-pipe. Eiji blocked the darts with his sword and continued his attacks. Ataha panicked and started to climb the nearest tree. Before he even manage to fully grab the first branch to pull himself up, he felt his torso being slice in two. Ataha looked down, hanging from the branch he manage to grabbed, he saw the lower part of his torso and legs fell on the ground. Seeing in horror his own guts and blood everywhere, he then closed his eyes and dropped like a brick died.
"Are you ok, little girl?" asked Kayin. "My name is Naru! And Yes, I am." said the little girl removing leaves from her hair. "Naru?" asked Kayin staring at her eyes directly. "Naru, do you know who is your mother?" asked quickly Kayin. "My mom.. She is died.. Like my father.. Her name was er... Cupido I think.. Strange name, eh?" Kayin's eyes started to be filled by tears and he hugged the little girl hard. Naru smiled and laughed "Why are you crying, mister?" Kayin got up and held her in his arms and whispered "I am your father... Naru..my name is Kayin." Naru was shocked and confused "my daddy died before I was born! That what I was told!" "They lied to you... you and your mother had you in secret... I guess they found out and killed your mother... I thought they killed you too..." Kayin said crying of joy. Naru started to cry hard and held Kayin with all her force "Daddy.... Daddy!!!!!!!"
Eiji walked slowly to Kayin and Naru, both crying hard. "Kayin... did I miss something? Is she all right????" asked worried Eiji. "Kayin and Naru turned their head a bit embarrassed and said everything is great. "I killed the assassin. He was probably here waiting for Ellis to come back but saw us instead and recognized us." Eiji said looking at the sky. "Ellis??? Are you friends of her?" asked rapidly Naru.
"Yes!!!!!! Do you know where is she?" asked Kayin to his daughter. "Sure, follow me!" said Naru jumping out of Kayin's arms and started running inside the woods. Both men ran and Kayin grabbed her in his arms and whisk her off quickly in midair. "It will be faster if I carry you! Just point us where too!" told Kayin smiling to the girl. Naru nodded and laughed out loud. "Why were you in the bushed hiding, Naru?" Eiji asked. "I was looking for David, my friend, he is the one who saved Ellis at the circus!" "Great, I like to thank him for helping Elli!" said Eiji with relief.
Kayin was quietly looking at Naru. Cupido did had his baby. He smiled
and started to think of the past with her, the first time they meet. "Hey,
you! Think you are tuff enough for me?" asked the teenager to the beautiful
woman. "I want that sword!" said the woman to the young man. "Come here
and get it!" said the cocky young man. The young woman grinned and started
her attacks. The teenager dodge the attacks and kicked her in the behind
while doing a rolling-flip behind her. She growled out loud
and slashed her sword with a hatred so intense that young Kayin
felt it hard. "What is your problem??" asked Kayin to the woman. "I am here to get the sword for Master, even if it means killing you, you fool!" the woman screamed. Kayin smiled and stopped moving and remained still. He then took his sword and dropped it slowly on the ground. "What are you doing?" asked the angry lady. "Please, if you are to take my sword and life, please at least tell me your name, because I want know the name of the angel who is going to kill me!"
Kayin said while looking at her directly in her eyes. The woman stopped moving and knew he was serious. ".. my name is Cupido... Kayin... I am here sent by the organization to take your sword and life. I am no angel..." sadly she said. She didn't know what to do. Kayin walked up slowly to her and kissed her deeply. She was frozen, she could not stop him. She dropped her sword and slowly put her arms around his waist and held him thigh while they both kissed hard each other. After the kiss, she was red like a cherry, a but embarrassed. Kayin was the same. They both laughed lightly and smiled at each other. They knew what just happened was like magic and it was meant to be. They also knew that it must have remained a secret. When the last time they meet in secret, she told him she was pregnant with his future daughter. She was going to call her "Naru". He was surprise but happy. She told him that she will meet him the next day at the same place in secrecy, but she never came back. Later, Kayin learned that she was killed by someone in the organization after she had the baby. Kayin swore revenge on the organization since that day. Kayin held Naru tight and knew he would protect her even if means sacrificing his own life.
Sho entered the door "Are you coming?" he asked Leon who was lying on
a bed resting. "Sure.. I rather be anywhere apart from this old rundown
house." Leon replied. Miss Till was waiting outside for them. "We lost
contact with Ataha. I ask Tau and Vermilion to meet us here while we load
the trucks with weapons." said Till to Sho and Leon. At the same time,
David and Ellis were hiding behind some barrels. "We are dead if they spot
us!" Ellis whispered. She and David knew they were no match for them. Especially
Sho, Eiji's older brother. A few boys from the orphanage started to pack
some boxes in a truck full of weapons. "I can't let them escaped with theses
many weapons!" David said softly.
"What are we going to do?" asked Ellis. David smiled and opened his left hand. He had brought with him a grenade. "Stay here!" David said while he looked around. When he saw his path was cleared, he ran close to the truck and pitched the activated grenade inside it. He turned around to run back to hide but his arm was caught by Sho. "What are you doing, boy?" asked Sho angrily. David started to panic, his grenade would explode in a few second. Sho suddenly let go David when he received one of Ellis's daggers in the back. "Aaaaaaahhhhh!!!" Sho screamed in pain out loud. Till and Leon and the other boys turned around to see what happened. David had only the time to jump on the ground when the truck exploded with a thunder crash. Sho was projected in mid air from the explosion and landed close to where Ellis was now standing. Miss Till and the others covered the face with their arms from the heat of the explosion. Miss Till started to bark out orders to the boys to get water and stop the fire from spreading. David manage to get on his feet and ran to Ellis and both went inside the nearby woods. Sho slowly got up, removed Ellis's dagger from his back and stumble to the infirmary with the help of Leon.
"Did you saw that?" ask Nagisa to Tracy. "Yes, let's go!" Tracy said
with excitement. They knew that the organization had a front close
to this area and were hoping to find it. They drove close to the orphanage
in Nagisa's car slowly. They saw the burning truck and wondered what is
happening. They stopped the car and got out to see if they could help.
Nagisa looked around
while Tracy called for the fire department. Nagisa looked at the ground and saw burned bullets casing everywhere and realized that the truck was full of weapons burning in pieces. He took out his gun and arrested the people he could find. Lucky for Miss Till, Leon and Sho, they had the time to run away during the blaze.
"Damn... The cops have found the place!" Leon said while looking in the back window. Miss Till continued to drive quietly but very angry. She knew it was David who did all this. He would die, she promised herself. Sho was sitting in the back seat fading in and out of consciousness. "Abel won't be happy about this." Leon said. Miss Till radioed Tau and Vermillion. "I want that boy died!!!!!!" She commanded to them. They agreed and she continued on driving now smiling.
Ellis was running with David beside him inside the forest. In a flash,
she saw a giant man wearing a hockey mask struck her hard in the face.
She landed on the ground rolled up in a ball, half dazed. David was stunned
by what just happened. "Judgement!!!!!!!!! Stop it!!!!" he screamed at
the big man. David stood right between him and Ellis who was on the ground
still dazed from the hit. Judgement was silent, still walking slowly closer
to David. "Judgement! We are your friends!!!!! Please stop!!!!! I don't
want to hurt you!!!!!!! Please!!!!" cried David who knew nothing he say
would stop Judgement form attacking Ellis. Suddenly, David feared the worst.
Judgement reach in his back and took out his chainsaw and started it. David
did the same, with no other options left. They started fighting together,
sparks flying everywhere, the blades of the chainsaws hitting each others
violently. David was barely able to stop Judgement attacks. Judgement changed
tactics, he step back and reached for a grenade to toss it at David. David
panicked because he knew he could do nothing against that. "Blam!!!!" a
loud shot was heard in the entire forest. Ellis stood there beside David,
holding his gun she took out from his coat pocket. The shot hit judgement
directly in the forehead.
Judgement took a few more step back, drop his weapons and fallen on his back like a tree that just has been chopped off. David screamed out "NNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!!!" He ran beside Judgement and kneeled quickly beside him. Under Judgement's head, was a huge pool of blood forming. David started to cry trying to remove Judgement's mask off. Slowly, Judgement's hand touch softly David's hand, making signal not to remove the mask. David stopped moving and stared in horror, not sure what to do. "Frriieennnnddd..... lllooovvee... yooouuuu...." where Judgement last words before he closed his eyes forever. David begged him not to die, hugging him and caressing his head. But he knew he was gone, nothing could changed that. David stood up and turned toward where Ellis was standing. He looked at her in hatred. Ellis was scared now, she prepared herself for an attack. But David did something she was not expecting. He dropped his chainsaw and ran to her and hugged her hard and started to weep. She started to cry too. Both of them stood in the woods, for minutes which seemed like hours weeping together.
"Aahhhhh.. Is that so sweet? Look at the kids cry!" Tau said standing
beside a tree close to them. He had finally able to catch them. He
took out his large sword and slashed it at both of them. David and Ellis
were able to dodge it in time. Both of them prepared for the fight. Tau
was big and fast, much faster David was expecting. Tau grabbed David by
the neck and swung him directly in a tree. David immediately lost consciousness
from the crushing blow he just taken.
Ellis screamed in horror, thinking David was now dead. She jumped on Tau and started to slash him with her dagger non-stop. Tau screamed in agony and tried to remove the girl from himself, but she locked her legs together on his waist. He felt every stabs he receive from Ellis. She was now totally berserk. Slashing and slashing like a maniac, she didn't stop until she regained her senses and was standing on top of a dead giant Indian, his stomach torn in pieces. She shriek in horror by what she had done, the face Tau had, the expression of horror and death, it was now burned in her mind forever.
She turned around when she heard coughing from behind her. David was alive! She ran to him and hugged him and kissed him hard. She had never fallen in love with someone before. She had with David. She knew it. "I love you.." she whispered to David, helping him up. David nursed his head and smiled and kissed her hard. While kissing her, they heard people running toward them. They sight and prepared for another attack. But it was not an enemy this time. It was Eiji and Kayin holding Naru in his arms.
Naru screamed out of joy seeing David alive and she jumped in his arms and hugged him hard. Eiji and Kayin hugged Ellis each one time and kissed her on her forehead softly. She smile and laughed in relief. They made a circle and started talking. "Eiji, Kayin, I wanted to meet you both a long time ago!" David said a bit embarrassed. Eiji smile and put his hand on his shoulder.
"Thank you for saving Ellis, my friend, you have my gratitude and respect!" Eiji said. But before he could continued, David's head exploded in pieces, hitting mostly Eiji in the face. Eiji was frozen in terror. Ellis screamed in total horror and fainted hard. Kayin grabbed hard Naru's head and turned it so she didn't saw more of the horror that just befallen on David. David's body stood there for a few more seconds and slumped on the ground hard, more blood gushing out quickly.
Eiji's face and body was covered in David's blood, all he could do was to stand there and grab his sword. They then heard a laugh coming from somewhere close to them. Eiji recognized the laughter. "VERMILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU MOTHER FUCKER!!!!!!!!!! I AM GOING TO KILL YOUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!" screamed Eiji now glowing red and blue. He started shooting fireballs all around him hoping to fry Vermillion. After a few moment, he heard something, like a small scream. Eiji knew he didn't hit him with his fireballs, he was confused by the sound. Suddenly, Vermillion's head landed directly in Eiji's arms. Eiji dropped it and stared from where the head came from. Standing there, was Gaia, holding Vermilion's body in one hand, his sword in the other. He threw the body on Tau's body and walked slowly to Ellis and raised her in his powerful arms. "I was too late to save the boy.. Please forgive me..my daughter..."
"Reactivate her! I want to talk to her before you reprogram her!" asked Abel to a scientist who was standing in front of Sofia that who was strapped to a table on a 90'degree position. The scientist nodded and press a few buttons on the computer that was link to Sofia's CPU. Sofia slowly opened her eyes and asked what happened to her. "Sofia, how are you feeling, my new toy?" asked Abel walking closely to her. "What have you done to me? Feeling so strange.." she said while looking around confused. She saw some cables coming out of her navel, attached to a computer. "My dear, we are about to reprogram you to make you my new servant." said Abel now starting to fondle her. She spitted on him and said "What do you mean reprogram me?" "Look in this mirror and you will see!" he said while moving a tall mirror in front of her. The scientist then pressed a few buttons on the come and her stomach opened revealing her true nature. She said nothing, she was to chock by the truth. "I am... am a cyborg?" she asked. "No! You are not a cyborg, much more than that! You are completely a machine! Not one single living cell inside you! You silly robot!" Abel laughed out loud cruelly. "I don't believe you!!!!" Sofia screamed at him while looking at her reflection. "Make her believe!" ordered Abel to the scientist. The man in the lab coat stood up and took out a small tool and went beside Sofia. "What are you doing???" she screamed at him. He insert the tool inside her ears one at a time and turned the tools in circular motion, she could hear and feel something clicking inside her own head. She was crying now out loud "Nnooooo!!! please stop..please!!!" she cried out. Slowly he removed her scalp from her head, exposing circuits, cables and wires were showing instead of the hair and scalp. She stared in the mirror, looking at herself in disbelief. "I... I.. No... I can't be.." she muttered.
Abel walked up to her and looked inside her head. "See... not one single living thing. I must admit, you have the best A.I. program I ever seen. Doc did a great job on you.". "I am alive!!!!!" Sofia screamed at him. "Alive???? I don't think so. You are functioning right now, but not alive." Abel said while putting his hands inside her stomach. She felt so strange, she could sense he was inside her, his fingers touching her circuits, it almost was a sexual arousement. She blushed and felt dirty. "Please stop it..." she begged him. Abel snickered and lower his head to look inside her stomach. "Ahhhh.. Look what I found!" he laughed. Sofia froze and said nothing. "Let's see hoe you like this." he said while pressing her off button. Sofia felt like she just died, everything becoming black. She remained like a statue, her eyes where with out life, she had a blank state. Abel liked this power he had over her. He kissed her hard and touched her breasts and she still remained like a emotionless statue. He smirk and pressed the button again and he saw her system being reactivated. She blinked and asked what happened. "I turned you off!!!!" laugh Abel. He looked at her and smiled. He reached over the table and took a small screw driver.
She became nervous now. "What are you doing????" she asked. Abel took a small screw driver and started to use it on some of her circuits. She felt something so strange, like something of her own soul was being removed. Abel looked at her and showed her the circuit he removed. "I just removed the circuit that gives you free will. Let me show you. Sofia, tell me that you love me!" he whispered to her. "I love you, Abel" Sofia said to him, she could not stop herself. "Scientist, untie her!" he commanded. The scientist untied Sofia and looked at Abel worried. "Sofia, please undress yourself." Abel commanded to her. Sofia said nothing and got naked. "Sofia, open your breasts panel. We need to put something inside you." Abel asked her. A panel just above a breasts opened and she closed her eyes. Abel nodded to the scientist and the lackey inserted a small device inside her. Sofia sighted when he connected the device to her CPU. She felt a rush of new programs erasing most of her matrix. She was being reprogrammed. She wanted to scream but she could do nothing anymore she wished, she was just a puppet for Abel. She opened her eyes and said "New programming accepted. Master Abel." she said smiling. Abel walked to her and hugged her hard and kissed her, She did the same. Sofia now knew why she existed now, to kill Eiji Totoukan at any cost. Abel turned to the scientist and ask him to leave the room so he and Sofia could be alone for a few hours. The man in the coat left the room, jealous of Abel.
"Eiji???????????" screamed Tracy out the car window. Nagisa stopped the police car and watched the strange small group of people coming out of the woods and closer to him and Tracy. Tracy got out of the car and ran to him and hugged him hard. Eiji tried his best to smile to her but was unsuccessful. Tracy looked at him and knew he was extremely sad. She then looked at the others, Kayin holding a small girl that was crying none stop, Gaia was holding Ellis who was also weeping hard, looking grim. Nagisa walk to them and said "Let me guess, the organization did it's dirty work again?" "They will all die, I promise myself." growled Eiji clutching his sword. "I don't know if we can all fit in the car, but I am willing to try to take us at the closest hotel and prepare yourself for our next move. They nodded and stuffed themselves in the car and left the woods outskirts.
Night time arrived quickly and they all meet in the lounge together.
Sitting in chairs facing a giant fireplace in the room, they all sat in
silence. On a long couch, Ellis was being consoled by Tracy, holding her
softly, Naru was sleeping on Kayin's shoulders. Gaia was standing
beside the fireplace, starring at the flames. Sitting in a easy chair,
Nagisa was cleaning his gun and Eiji was sharpening his sword also standing
up. "So... what do we do now?" asked Nagisa. "We fight, we fight until
they are all died!" replied Eiji angry. "Noo!!!!!! No more fighting!!!!!!
Didn't enough people died yet??? When will it all stop???" screamed Ellis
in tears at Eiji. Eiji frowned and shake his head "What else we can do?
My own brother tried to kill me last year to simply prove he was stronger
than me.. Like it or not, we are stuck in this war! We must fight until
we destroy the organization for good!" Eiji said while sitting in a chair.
"Eiji is right, my daughter. We must destroy everyone of them." said Gaia
putting his giant hand on Ellis's left shoulder.
"Ok, but how we destroy them?" asked Nagisa inserting bullets in his gun. "We attack them!" Eiji yelled in anger. "No." whispered Kayin quietly putting Naru beside him sleeping. "We let them attack us. We make sure that they don't know we have regrouped here together and when they send the rest of their assassins, we slaughter them!" Kayin continued. "Mmmm good plan, Kayin!" Tracy smiled in confident. She knew she was the weakest of them, but knowing having Gaia and Eiji beside her, she felt safe now. "I can't do that!" Eiji said turning toward the window. "I must go rescue Sofia... I promised her.." Kayin and the others grinned, they had forgetting that their friend Sofia had been captured by the organization. "Don't worry about me, I can take care of myself alone!" smiled Eiji to them. They all shook their hands and agreed to Kayin's plan, even it means missing one of their stronger fighter, Eiji.
"What?????" yelled Abel at Miss Till. "All our weapon stock has been destroyed???" he said pacing quickly. Leon was beside her with Sho, shacking in fear. "Their was nothing to be done, Abel." said Sho flamboyance. "And I lost most of my assassins too!" yelled again Abel in disgust. "Damn them!!!!!!! I am going to kill them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!" he continued to screamed out.
"Get me the rest of the assassins and fighters, Sho, we are going to
make a visit to some of them!" Abel commanded. Sho nodded and left the
room with Leon following him nervously.
Miss Till was also nervous, she never wanted to get Abel angry at her, she seen what happens when he loose control over his power. Lucky for her, he sat down and cooled down. He was mumbling something when his lead scientist in robotics entered the room and announced some good news. "With analysing Sofia, I was able to created 2 more androids for you, my lord! I called them the Zola sisters." the small man with glasses wearing a lab coat gloated. Two beautiful tall woman entered the room, wearing each a different cat costume. Abel laughed at the costumes but he was a bit also aroused but them at the same time. "Ahhhh!!!!!! thank you, my scientist! You just make me very happy!" Abel said while walking closely to the androids. Abel softly grab the breasts of one of them and kissed them with his mouth. The android sighted with Abel touching her all over her body, it also became aroused. Miss Till was very unhappy by this. Abel was her lover, and now was seeing her man making out with a machine. She knew he slept with most women in the castle, but now, with machines. Miss Till left the room in discuses and went to see Sho to have sex to him in retaliation of Abel. When Sho refused, she almost attacked him, but manage to restrain herself and without due, she went to Leon for comfort to her self esteem.
A few days had past since David was killed. Ellis was still in mourning. She sneaked a few times in the forest to his grave they made for him and put some flowers on the wooden cross her father built quickly. She would kneeled in front of it and prayed to God to forgive her for having David killed because of her. She blamed herself entirely for his death. If he had never meet her, he would be alive right now, probable playing with Naru and Judgement. She sometimes closed her eyes and remembered in details when he got shot in the head, and it exploded on impact of the blast of Vermillion's gun. She always started to weep heavenly when she remember that moment burned in her mind Even if they meet quickly and their time together was brief, she had fallen in love with him. But now, he was just a headless corps rotting in the grave underneath the ground she sat on. She got up and walked slowly back to where the others were hiding.
Naru was still sleeping that morning in Kayin's arm. He held her tight. He knew she still had nightmares from David's death. He felt hapless and powerless to take away her pain. Even himself, he had nightmares about it. He knew it could happen to any of them, including himself. He knew it almost happened to Eiji last year, Vermillion tried to kill Eiji. Eiji was fast enough to dodge the bullets and attack Vermillion. Vermillion was struck in the face by Eiji's blade, but Verm had manage to back away in time to only receive a scar when he step back and fallen in a swamp. Eiji looked for hours in the swamps for Verm, but he had never found him again.
Kayin slowly got up and put softly Naru inside the bed and covered her
up with a warm blanket.
He looked outside and saw Ellis coming back from her secret walk. He knew where she went, he couldn't blame her. He went to see her how she was. She entered the hotel room that they all shared silently. She looked around and saw that Tracy and Nagisa were still sleeping on the couches. She saw Kayin standing in the small kitchen doorway and went to hug him. She always saw Kayin and Eiji like big brothers that she never had.
"Where is my father?" she asked in a whisper to Kayin. "I don't know, I woke up and you and him were gone. I thought he was with you." Kayin replied softly. "Let's go outside and get some breakfast for the gang." Kayin said. She agreed and they left a note in the door in case Naru woke up and looked for them. They both walked about for 2 minutes and reached and small coffee and waited for the chef to take their orders. "Kayin... are you afraid of dying some day?" she asked gloomy to Kayin. "Every day... even more now, with Naru to protect." Kayin said while looking at his feet. She walked to him and hugged him hard and cried a bit more. Kayin knew she lost her fighting edge. He kissed her on her forehead and told her "Ellis... never fear, me and Eiji and your father will never let something bad happen to you ever again!". She smiled "Please never leave me, you guys... don't die, ok.?" she asked with tears in her eyes.
Before Kayin could say something, he was hit in the back by a fireball.
He and Ellis went crashing into some tables and chair. "Kayin!!!!!!!!"
Ellis screamed. "I'm ok... please get away, I'll handle whoever hit me!"
She refused and help him get up. Standing there was Abel, with along side,
Racheal, Cuiling, Soutz and Leon. "Kayin, Ellis, are you ready to die now?"
Abel asked laughing. Kayin knew Abel was strong, he could feel his
powers. Ellis grabbed her daggers from her legs and stood beside Kayin
in a fighting position. "No... Ellis.. You are not ready!" Kayin told her.
"David died because of me! I won't let you die too!" Ellis growled out.
Abel threw a fireball at Kayin, who was able to cancel it with his own
fireball. Kayin knew that was a diversion for the others to attack all
at once. Leon, Soultz, Cuiling and Racheal all attacked as Kayin predicted.
Ellis's fears all left her and she attacked they instead of waiting for
them to arrive to her and Kayin. She took Racheal and Leon by surprise
and stabbed them both in the chest with her daggers. They both landed on
the ground in shook, blood dripping from their wounds. Soultz started to
swing his giant sickle but it stopped when it hit Tracy's Billy clubs.
"Tracy!!!!!" Kayin yelled out in relief. "Nagisa is protecting Naru, no need to worry about her!" Tracy screamed out while doing a spinning kick combo to Soultz's face. Abel panicked when he saw 2 of his fighters already in grave danger, and notice that Kayin and Ellis were not alone.
Abel's fear grew at great length when he saw someone he knew from the past charging directly at him. Gaia come out of nowhere and hit directly Abel in the face with a punch. The impact of the punch was so great that Abel went flying threw a brick wall, demolition it on impact. Leon and Racheal got on their feet only to be stabbed repeatedly more by Ellis who was now glowing a blue glow. Each stab was getting stronger and stronger and deeper and deeper. Leon and Racheal tried their desperation moves to stop Ellis from bludgeoning them to death. She dodge them and gave Leon a kiss on his cheek while saying "This is a goodbye kiss... enjoy!" Leon panicked even more and screamed in horror when he saw the hatred she had inside her eyes. Sadly, for him, it was the last thing he would ever see. Ellis stabbed both her dagger in his eye socket with such great force, his head exploded in pieces. Racheal screamed in horror, seeing such a young teenager being kill crazy and powerful. At the same time, Kayin and Cuiling were fighting each other. Kayin was easy on her, he could had killed her already 3 times, but he took pity on the girl dressed as Foo. He knew who she was and why she followed Abel. She didn't have the killing instinct a regular Toshiden warrior suppose to have. Cuiling was fighting Kayin the best she could, she kept telling herself she is stronger than him. Kayin blocked her every attack she tried and she was getting frustrated. He then jumped under her while she tried an energy ball roll attack and he did his raising spin attack, knocking her unconscious in seconds.
Soultz was also in trouble. Tracy was so small and fast, he had problems trying to hit her. He then received a blow directly in the stomach and he went flying across the street in a store window. Tracy looked up and saw Gaia walking slowly to where Racheal was standing. Racheal could not move anymore. She never saw such much blood and gore around her. Leon died, Abel, her employer thrown threw a brick wall, same for Soultz, him, a window, and now, Cuiling on the ground maybe died too. She was frozen now by the sight of Gaia towering her, him, holding his giant sword. Racheal was already bleeding from the stabs of Ellis, she felt getting colder and colder. She then closes her eyes and wept in horror. Since she been young, she fought all her life, being a street punk. She never lost a fight, since today. But she knew today, she would loose more than a fight, but her life too. "Please.... don't kill me... please..." she begged to Gaia. "Would you kill me if the situation was reversed?" Gaia asked loudly. "Nooo... Noo... I would show mercy... please show me mercy...." she cried out. "You are a bad liar.. Goodbye.." Gaia told her while swinging his sword and lopping her head off. Racheal's head went flying high and landed beside her body, who was still on it's knees. Gaia kicked Racheal's body across the street in front of Abel who was climbing out of the rubble that was on top off him. Abel knew he was outmatch by all of them together. He raised his fist in midair and screamed. Giant fireballs came raining down on his opponents. Gaia barely had the time to jump on top of Ellis to protect her from the flames. Kayin manage to jump inside the coffee house, but Tracy was left expose in the middle of the street alone. She got scorch all over, screaming in agony. Kayin could do nothing but to see Tracy get burned alive. Abel didn't stop until the street was a blazing inferno. Cuiling and Soulzt manage to escape while Abel continued his attacks. He only stopped after he saw Tracy was reduce to a smoking skeleton. Gaia's back was burn black to cinder, he wanted to scream out of pain but kept quiet, protecting his daughter under him. Abel laughed and evacuated with his remaining assassins.
"Father!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Ellis screamed, seeing his face in terrible pain.
He collapsed on his stomach, his back all black and smoking with 3 degrees
burns. Kayin was weeping, seeing Tracy's burned skeleton lying in the middle
of the street. He got up walked slowly to it. The pavement was smoking
and sticky from the heat of Abel's attack. Leon's and Racheal's bodies
where also reduce to smoking skeletons. "What a monster..." Kayin whispered
to himself. He turned his head and saw Nagisa walking with Naru in his
hands. Nagisa was shocked from the scenery, flames on top of the building
closes to them. When he walked closer to Kayin, he saw what was left
of Tracy. He almost dropped Naru from the shock of it. "Tracy... no...
no..." he mumble walking closer to the skeleton. Kayin ran to him and stopped
him from getting closer and begged him to look away. Naru was looking at
the flames, frighten "Where is Tracy?" she asked. "She went after the bad
guys, my baby, don't worry, she is ok..." Kayin told her while taken her
from Nagisa's arms. Nagisa looked at Naru and smiled "Yes... she is gone
after the bad guys.. She will show them a lesson..." he said while tears
started to come out his eyes. Kayin walked away with Naru to call ambulances
and the fire department. Ellis begged her father not to move until the
ambulance came for him. He got up any way and started to walked toward
"Father!!!!!! No!!!! no more fighting today!!!! Enough people died today!!!" she screamed at him.
He nodded and agreed to go at the hospital with her. Nagisa sat on the sidewalk, holding one of Tracy's burned billy clubs. He was feeling alone like he never felt being so alone before. "How can I stop those bastard..."
Eiji was walking in a rapid pace to arrive at the castle. He heard that
someone of the organization was working there in secret. It was an old
castle, mostly ruins, perfect place to hide stocks of drugs and weapons
with out the police finding it easily. Eiji was able to find one low-life
in a bar with information about this. When he tortured the man, Eiji knew
the exact location of this place. He arrived at the main gate of the ruined
castle. Eiji listened but heard nothing. He tried his best to sneak inside
without being seen by someone or hidden cameras. He arrived inside
the main court and saw nothing but an empty room without any roof. He looked
around and saw also no one. Then, he heard from behind him the main gate
slam shut. Standing there was a man in full armour, holding a great 2 handed
sword. "Duke? Why are you here???" asked Eiji confused seeing once an old
college. Duke said nothing, raising his sword and yelling a loud shout.
Eiji saw this scene before, Duke was going to attack him. Eiji grabbed
his sword hard and prepared for Duke's attacks. Duke started running at
full speed swinging his sword. Eiji got angry at Duke "Do you think you
can defeat me????????" Eiji screamed at him. "You killed Uranus!!!!!!!!!!
My lover!!!!! Abel and Balga told me how you killed her without any mercy!"
Eiji grinned and started to run also at full force toward Duke "I had no choice to kill her!!! She didn't love you anyway! She was a lesbian!" Eiji screamed back. "LIAR!!!!!!!!" Duke replied to Eiji's remarks. The noise of the swords hitting each other was heard for miles away. Duke was strong and fast for his size. He was one of the best fighters Eiji had ever fought in the past. But like the past, Eiji was faster and stronger than him. Within minutes, Dukes was already exhausted, hurting from the hits he received from Eiji. He knew now he could not win. He stabbed his sword in the ground and kneeled in front of Eiji. "I.. I can't defeat you... I surrender to you my sword, Eiji Tadoukan." Duke said in shame. Eiji, was also tired and hurt, but in better shape. Eiji smiled and kneeled also in front of Duke. "Man, Duke, if you were not so uptight, you could defeat me maybe someday!" he laughed out. Duke smiled and chuckle also. They both got up and shook hands. They suddenly heard someone laughing in the background of them. Balga was there, sword and shield in hands, looking at them.
"I got a surprise for you too!" said Balga while pulling a level revealing a trap door opening. Eiji and Duke backed away in horror from what they saw. It was Chaos, one of the old organization. He was rumoured to be has powerful as Gaia. Chaos got up and grabbed his sickle and started to laugh like a mad man. They could see in his eyes, Chaos was now a crazy psychopath. "Chaos, attack!" Balga ordered. The second Chaos heard the word attack, he started to spin like crazy with his sickle toward Duke and Eiji. "This won't be easy!" said Duke. Eiji agreed and started to concentrate. "Here I got!!!" screamed Duke running toward Chaos. Eiji started to blast fireballs at Chaos who was still spinning like crazy. The fireballs had no effects on Chaos, who was still laughing like a mad man. Duke slashed his blade, trying to hit Chaos, but Chaos's sickle stopped all of Duke's attacks. Duke retreated and started a running jump attack. Eiji started doing the same. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!" screamed Duke in horrible pain. Balga just sliced him in the back in mid air. Duke land hard on the ground right in front of Chaos. Balga landed a few feet away and ordered Chaos to kill him. Like a puppet, Chaos did the order. Before Eiji could stop him, Chaos sliced Duke's head in two. Eiji's screamed in horror at seeing what happened. Duke's body just twitched and blood gushed out of it. Balga relished in seeing his old rivalry get killed in such a cruel way.
Eiji was now glowing bright red. He stood there and waited for Chaos
to attack him. He waited until Chaos was so close to him, he could smell
him. Eiji yelled and did a new attack he never did before. A spirit bomb.
Energy and flames burst out directly from under Eiji and spread out a radius
around him about 20 feet, in a perfect circle. Chaos was caught in the
blast. The heat from the attack was so much that all the stone ground surrounding
Eiji was glowing bright red.
Chaos continued to laugh and laugh and laugh, until he was reduce to a pill of ashes. Balga looked in horror from afar, shacking in his armour. Eiji's energy attack dissipated after a few seconds and things returned to normal. Eiji was standing, gasping for air.
Balga was no fool, he tried to take advantage of Eiji's strained condition. Balga slashed his sword with all his strength directly at Eiji's torso. Eiji manage to block the attack with a spin kick and step back. Eiji snarled at Balga, who knew he just did a bad mistake attacking Eiji. Eiji jumped directly above Balga and did a diving flaming kick. Balga last sight was Eiji's foot print landing directly in his face threw his helmet.
Eiji was lying on the stone floor resting. Balga's body was lying close
to him, his head crushed in pieces inside his helmet, blood oozing out
slowly. Eiji got up and walked slowly away from the castle heading for
his next target, the Toshiden arena. He knew Abel and the rest of the organizations
would be there. Eiji smile and whispered a small prayer to his died friend,
Abel was sitting in his throne room, extremely unhappy. Miss Till was beside him, looking worried. "Where is Balga?" he asked loudly. The servants were scared stiff. "My lord... he freed Chaos without us knowing and disappeared with him. Abel's face became red with anger. "Damn him!!! I will kill the fool!" he screamed. Sho entered the room with any sound and cough to get Abel's attention. "My lord, we are down to only two assassins. What shall we do?" "Nothing!!!! We don't need them anyway!!!!!! I will kill my enemies by my own hands!!" screamed Abel at Sho.
Sho nodded and left the throne room smiling. He knew that soon the others will come for Abel, and they will kill him.. Sho hated Abel to his very core, but also hated Gaia and the others. He waited until only a few remained alive and then Sho would kill them all and control all the power alone. He heard in a room close to the passage Cuiling and Soultz fighting together. He looked in and saw that Soultz tried to rape Cuiling but Cuiling fought back. Sho laughed and left the room with Soultz not far behind him angry.
With out his notice, behind him, was Eiji hiding in the shadows. Eiji had manage to sneak inside the fortress. He entered a room and saw Cuiling sitting alone and crying. Eiji could not resist to seat beside her and try to console her. "Are you ok?" he asked in a whisper to Cuiling. Cuiling raised her head and to see who was the person who was nice to her the first time that she had been in this fortress. She was shock. "Eiji Toudokan?" She asked him. He nodded and made the hand signal for her to remain quiet. "I am here to stop the organization... you can be free from all this soon..." he whispered to her. She looked at her feet and got up. "I... I .. No! I must a avenge my Granddad!" she screamed. She flashed a giant energy ball aimed directly at Eiji. "NO! You don't need to do this!!!!! I don't want to kill you!!!" Eiji told her while holding his sword directly in front of himself.
Suddenly, Cuiling heard a noise she hated so much. The fucking monkey
was in the room. "Bayhou!!!!! I'll kill you!!!!!!!" She screamed out loud.
Eiji was confused when he saw a monkey come out the ceiling, holding Foo's
old claws. The monkey got on his two feet between Eiji and Cuiling, has
if it challenged Cuiling to a fight. Cuiling, enrage, attacked the monkey.
Eiji stood back and watched the fight. Cuiling was good, but surprisingly,
the monkey was better. It even farted in Cuiling's face once, in mid-attack.
After a few minutes, Cuiling was on her hands and knees crying, the monkey
making grimace at her. "Defeated by a monkey!" Soultz said out loud, standing
in a doorway of the room. "You are not worthy to life!" Soulzt said while
aiming his crossbow at her head. Before Cuiling could dodge, the arrows
were launched. Eiji looked in horror, hiding from Soulzt. He knew he was
to late to save her life. Cuiling closed her eyes and waited for the arrows
to kill her. She then heard a thud. She opened her eyes and saw in front
of her eyes, Bahou died. The monkey jumped in front of the arrows to save
her life. She started to cry out loud "Stupid Monkey!!!!!!! WHY?????!!!!!!!"
Soultz then did the most despicable act Eiji ever saw in his entire life.
Soultz sliced Cuiling's head off while she held the dead monkey.
The head of the young woman rolled toward Eiji. Eiji screamed in horror at Soulzt "Bastard!!!!!!!". Eiji cursed at himself, how could he have been hiding in the dark instead of saving her. Soultz was shocked by what he heard. "Who is there hiding???" he asked loudly with his thick french accent. Before Eiji could say anything, something in the room started to glow. Bayhou's body started to float and something came out. It was Foo's spirit. Eiji recognized Foo perfectly. Foo's ghost floated toward Cuiling's body and looked at it sadly. Soulzt was terrified now, shacking and sweating. Foo turned now to Soulzt and started to glow red. Eiji closed his eyes, he only could hear and imagine what happened to Soulzt. When he reopened his eyes, Soulzt was now a pill of bones and flesh torn in pieces. Foo's ghost now started to float toward Eiji. Eiji was about to panicked but remained cool. He walk to Foo's ghost, drop his sword and pick up Cuiling's head and presented it to the ghost. Foo's face changed expression and Eiji saw tears rolled down from the old man's face. Suddenly, another flash appeared in the room and standing there was Cuiling's ghost. They slowly hugged together, Foo and Cuiling and disappeared in to a bright light together. Eiji was mesmorized from what he just saw. Before they completely disappear, they wave goodbye to him and smiled, looking so happy together. Eiji quietly left the room with a strange sensation of calm.
Kayin and Gaia arrived at the main gate of the fortress. They knew they would received a warm welcome by the organization. Kayin, looking around, was nervous. Gaia was showing no emotions. Despite the pain he felt at all times from his burned back, he remained with a serious look. Nagisa, Ellis and Naru were gone to stay with Shizuku in hiding Nagisa would be able to protect them until they finish their business here. Gaia grabbed his sword and started to walk inside the gates. Surprisingly, they only saw two women waiting for them. They were wearing strange cat costumes. "Kayin, let me handle them.." Gaia asked Kayin. Kayin nodded and let Gaia attack. The woman jumped in front of Gaia and attacked him with whips. Gaia was hit but he continued his attacks, hitting both of them hard. The Zolas went flying across the outside wall of the castle. "They are not humans." Gaia told Kayin. "What??" asked confused Kayin. "I might need your help now, Kayin!" Gaia said while attacking one of the Zolas. "No problem!!!" Kayin said while performing a flash kick attack on the other Zola.
At the same time, Eiji was inside the castle, trying to find Abel. He then heard a laughter he knew well. "Sophia?" he asked trying to see her in the dark hall. She was standing there, with a new costume, gold ribbons covered barely her body. "YYYYYYYaaaaaayyyyyy!!!!!" Sophia screamed from the side of the hall, throwing a energy ring attack. Eiji cancelled it by a fireball. "Sophia! It's me! Eiji!" he screamed at her. "Yes, I know!" she laughed continuing her attacks. "Damn... they reprogrammed her!" Eiji cursed. Eiji closed his eyes for a second and sighted. "Please forgive me for this, my love." he whispered softly. "YYYYYaaaaaaayyyyy!!!!" Eiji screamed, creating the biggest fireball he ever did and launching it. It was so big, it took the entire passage, wall to wall. Sophia screamed in horror, their was no way she could dodge it or block it. Eiji opened his eyes and saw Sophia, lying on the ground, covered by smoke. He walk slowly to her, sword in hands, readied for anything. When he saw her closely, it broke his heart. He got her good, she was out of comition. Most of her costume was burned away, leaving her almost naked, she had burned black marks everywhere almost. But what was painful to Eiji, it was the open wounds she had, sparks were flying out of her, broken circuits, wires and cables were also sticking outside the wounds. Smoke was coming out from her stomach, the smell of burn rubber was in the air. Her face had a blank expression, eyes wide opened, along her mouth. Eiji could hear motors winding down and cracking of burned circuits coming from Sofia. "System damage... damage.. Mallffuuunctionning... system 35 damage..daammmaggg..e...e....da...d..." where the last things Sofia said before she become totally non-functional. .Her eyes then gradually become all dark. Eiji bent down and kissed her on the forehead and took her in his arm and put her over his left shoulder, like a wet towel. He knew there was a small chance maybe she could be repaired by Doc. He prayed for it. Walking slowly at the other end of the passage, he entered the throne room to face Abel alone.
Kayin was laying on the floor, gasping for air. Gaia was still standing straight like a mountain. "It's about time you destroyed that robot." Gaia said to Kayin. Kayin looked up and got on his feet slowly "Well... I am always soft against female, even if they are artificial!" laughed Kayin. "Are you ready to continue?" asked Gaia looking inside the castle doors. Kayin pushed Gaia to go first inside the castle and followed him. The castle was almost deserted, most lackeys escaped or fled in terror when they heard Gaia was coming here. Apart from a few stupid guards who attacked Gaia and Kayin, the few survivors they meet begged them for their lives. Of course, Gaia killed everyone of them. They arrived to a big room, almost like an arena. A giant metal door was in their way. Before Gaia could struck it down, it opened by itself. Kayin and Gaia grinned when they saw another robot come out the door. This time, it was not an android or human looking. It had "Adam II" written on it's chest. Gaia snarled "Kayin, be careful, it's a robot like this that killed Rungo!" Kayin now got even more worried. He made a signal to Gaia to encircle it. Gaia agreed and both attacked it at the same time.
"I'll be back for you, I promise." he told Sofia, who was sitting like a lifeless marionette. He hid her behind some panels of woods in a small deserted room. After this, Eiji continued his search for Abel. Suddenly, Eiji felt a strange power close to him. But it was not from the throne room, but from under him, in the dungeon. He found the secret doors and blew them up with a few kicks. He saw a dark narrow passage leading down. Walking the stairs, Eiji wondered who he would find down there. Eiji got his answer after a few minutes of climbing down the steps. Chained with massive chains and locks to a wall, was a young man dressed all in black. "Who are you?" Eiji asked to the young man. "My name is Veil, guardian of the old master. Abel and the young ones captured me and put me here when I discovered they were planning a coup on the old ones. I... I failed my masters... please leave me here...." said Veil with regrets. "Veil! Gaia mentioned you before!" Eiji said while preparing to cut his chains with his sword. "Gaia???? Is he still alive?" asked Veil in excitement. "Yes, and I think he just entered the castle with Kayin, I can feel them somewhere." smiled Eiji. Before Eiji could remove the chains, Veil started to glow red and in an instant, the chains and wall were vaporized to dust. "Wow... you are powerful! Why did you remained chained here when you could have escaped a long time ago?" asked Eiji confused. "I thought all the old master perished with out me protecting them. This was what I deserved for falling my task. But now, if you tell me Gaia is still alive, I have reason to fight again!" Veil said while dusting himself. "You will need some weapons." said Eiji looking around. "I don't need them.... look.." Veil mentioned while concentrating. Two energy blade formed around his fist. Eiji never saw such power. He was glad Veil was on his side. "Let's go kick some buts!" said Eiji heading for the stairs. Veil smile and started to fly up threw the ceiling. "Shit... he's scary!" Eiji told himself.
By the time Eiji arrived from the stairs, Veil was already destroying
most of the walls around them with giant fireballs. The ceiling started
to collapse but Veil destroyed hit also. Eiji cough from all the smoke
and dust flying around. "Sheesh... this will attract some attention..."
Eiji smiled. "That is what I am aiming for!" laughed Veil. "It work!" Sho
said standing with Abel and Miss Till at his side. "You! I remember all
of you! You betrayed us all!" Veil screamed at them. Sho looked at Eiji
and snickered "Brother, how weak you are!". Eiji replied nothing, remaining
quiet. Abel got in front of Sho and Miss Till and pointed to Eiji and Veil
"You both will die now!"
At the same time, Kayin and Gaia just finished destroying Adam. "I really
hate robots!" screamed Kayin unhappy. "We wasted enough time here! Let's
go get Abel!" Gaia said. "Wait for me!!!!!!!" was heard from behind them.
Kayin and Gaia gasped at the voice. It was Naru running toward them. "What
are you doing here?? HOW!!" asked angrily Kayin to Naru while picking her
up in his arms. "I hide in the back seat of the car you use to come here
and followed you in secret in this castle!" Naru explain quickly. Kayin
sighted and looked at Gaia, which also wish she was not there with them.
"No choice, bring her with you." Gaia said worried for the little girl.
Naru hugged hard Kayin and smiled. Kayin smiled too and carried her on
his shoulders. They suddenly heard some explosions and sword clashing.
They sensed powerful people close to them. They ran in the direction of
the noise and saw Eiji and Veil fighting Sho, Abel and Miss Till.
"Flaming spin kick!" screamed Eiji, hitting Sho in the stomach. Sho went flying across the room in pain. Abel and Veil were wrestling each other, flames surrounding them. Miss Till was attacking Eiji at the same time as Sho. She struck Eiji directly in the head with her weapon, breaking it. Eiji screamed in pain, blood gushing out from the wound. Putting quickly Naru on the floor, Kayin screamed at Till and released a great ball of flame toward her. She dodge it and kicked Kayin in the head. Sho got up and ran directly to Eiji, trying to do one final slash that would kill his brother. Gaia ran and smashed directly in Sho, sending him threw a stone wall. Gaia turned toward Till and received a knife in the chest. Till, who threw the knife, was laughing, enjoying every second of this. Gaia removed the knife and dropped it, blood dripping from it. Kayin was still dazed from the hit he took from Till but manage to slash her right arm off. Till screamed in horror and extreme pain. She turned around to face Kayin who now attacked her with his desperation move. After kicks and slashes non stop, she dropped died, cut in pieces. Naru, hiding behind a pillar, was terrified, seeing so much violence.
Sho and Eiji continued to fight each other, both seeking a kill. To
Eiji's horror, Sho was winning the fight. Gaia wanted to step in but Eiji
forbid him to interfere. Sho manage to slash Eiji's rib cage twice. Eiji's
pain was almost brain numbing for him, but he continued to fight on. "Brother,
if you have joined me in the past, I would not have to kill you today!"
Sho said to Eiji. "Go to hell!" Eiji screamed out loud while dodging more
slashes. Suddenly, Eiji's started to blow again a bright red. Gaia was
seeing Eiji's inner power building up. Suddenly, in mid air, Eiji unleashed
another soul-bomb, coughing Sho also in mid-air. Flames and electric discharges
came out of nowhere, surrounding Eiji all around him, like a cylinder.
Sho was smashed into the stone wall repeatedly, screaming in agony. The
attack lasted only a few seconds, but it was enough to change the tide
of the battle in Eiji's side. Sho landed on the floor hard, burned and
bloodied. Eiji landed on his feet and sighted hard. Gaia was looking in
hawed Eiji. Eiji walked slowly to Sho, who was sitting against the wall
trying to get up. "What power.... I am impress, brother..."
Sho said while chuckling at Eiji. "Anything to say before I kill you, Brother?" asked Eiji positioning his blade at Sho's neck. ".... kill me..." Sho said while looking down. Eiji did what Sho told him. Sho's head went flying off his body, followed by a trail of blood. A tear come out of Eiji's eyes slowly "Sho.. I love you.." Eiji said. Eiji turned around to face Gaia and passed out on the ground from all the pain he was suppressing.
Gaia was looking at Eiji when he was distracted by Veil who went flying
in the stone wall hard.
Abel had manage to throw Veil away from him. Gaia turned around to attack Abel. But before he could, Kayin jumped at Abel for a slash attack combo. Kayin slashed and slashed at Abel, blood flying everywhere around them. Kayin knew he was hitting vitals spots also. He then saw something that sent a shiver down right to his spine. Abel stared directly in Kayin's eyes and smiled. Gaia felt something he never felt before. Abel started to glow and everything close to him went flying hard, including Kayin. Abel manage to power up to a new level. He became so powerful that his flesh dissolve off his body. Only his nerve system was now showing, he was not human anymore. It was like a horror movie. Abel walked toward Kayin, who was lying on the floor, half conscious from Abel's transformation. Gaia rushed in to attack Abel but received powerful balls of energy, smashing him hard on the wall. Veil manage to climbed out the wall and also attack Abel. Abel started to float in the middle of the room and started quickly to blow. Suddenly, a giant energy ball formed around Abel and started to grow rapidly, filling most of the room. Gaia and Veil were being crushed hard in the walls from the energy ball. Kayin was lucky, the ball stopped just at his feet. Abel's attack lasted about 10 seconds, damaging greatly Gaia and Veil.
Abel slowly regained the floor and continue to walk toward Kayin. "I will kill you first, from the other weaklings." Abel said to Kayin, still half conscious. Naru could not stand it anymore. She walked in front of Kayin and screamed at Abel "Stop hurting my daddy!". Abel laughed and shot a energy ball at Naru, sending her flying in Kayin. "Stop... please don't hurt her.. Kill me if you must, but please... don't kill her..." Kayin begged to Abel. "I prefer killing all of you..!" Abel laughed continuing walking toward Kayin. Naru got up and covered Kayin as protection. "Naru... get my sword." Kayin told his daughter. Naru nodded and grabbed Kayin's sword that was lying close to his feet. Abel laughed "Ooooo!!! I am now scared..."
But he did actually became scared for real after a second from his statement. When Nary touched the sword, she raised it and she and the sword started to glowed a bright white light. "Daddy?" she asked confused. Kayin smiled, seeing her daughter had hidden powers. "Naru... you have my powers and your mother's power in your veins... Attack Abel now!" screamed Kayin with his remaining force. Naru smiled and ran quickly to Abel and stroke him with all her strength. Abel screamed when even blocking her attack, the sword sliced threw him like butter. "NNNOOOOoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!" screamed Abel, being sliced in two by Naru. Naru was now glowing red and started to float in front of him. Abel's was terrified from the power levels coming out of this 5 year old girl. She then screamed and slashed repeatedly Abel in pieces.
Kayin opened his eyes after a few minute from passing out. He saw his daughter was hugging him hard around the neck. He had never been happier in his life. He and his daughter survived. He got up and looked around the room that was almost obliterated. He heard a moan coming from where were the others. Slowly, Gaia was getting up with Veil's help. Eiji was standing up, not looking to hot but ok. They smiled at each other and Eiji gave Kayin and Naru a thumbs up.
Chapter 24 (Conclusion)
Gaia was still looking at the window from his hospital bed. He heard a faint knocking at the door and ask the person behind the door to enter. It was Ellis and Vein, with giant bouquets of flowers. Ellis hugged her father hard. "Errr,.. Be careful, I still have a few busted ribs to heal!" said Gaia hugging her back. "Hello sir, I ma glad to see you are recovering." said Veil with a smile. "Thank you for protecting my child, Veil." Gaia told him while shaking his hand. More knocks appeared from the door. It was Eiji and Sofia with more flowers. Ellis became shy when Eiji and Sofia came in and saw her crying tears of joy, hugging her father.
"Ahhhh.. Good to see you are ok, Sophia." Gaia smiled. Sophia blushed
and hide behind Eiji. "She still shy... She lost her memories again during
the fight. But she is in perfect health again." smiled Eiji while kissing
her on the forehead. Sofia walked to Ellis and told her "I wish I could
remember, but I think your father loves you a lot, don't be shy!".
Ellis blushed more and hit her father on the arm "Of course he loves me
lot, if not, I would trash him right now!" laughed Ellis.
"Uncle Gaia!!!!" was heard in high pitch coming from the door. Running quickly inside the room, was Naru. She jumped on Gaia's stomach while he was in semi-sitting position and gave him a hug. Kayin came in on a wheelchair. Eiji turned around and help him inside the room and sat him on the bed beside Gaia. "So, how long it will take to heal?" asked Eiji to Kayin. "The doctors said a few weeks... at least I totally didn't get trashed like this old man here!" laughed Kayin at Gaia. "Old man????" Gaia laughed hard.
The door opened while everyone was laughing and standing there was Nagisa with Shizuku. "My God! When are you to have the baby?" asked Ellis in chock to Shizuku. "In 4 months... I know I got twins, for sure." Shizuku said while sitting also on Gaia's bed with the help of Nagisa. "I wish the father could be here when I have them..." sighted Shizuku. "We all wished that, but I know Mondo would have been proud of them and will protect them from heaven. I promise to raised them if they were my own children." said Nagisa while rubbing Shizuku's large tummy. "Thank you, Nagisa, I know your cousin would like it this way." smiled Shizuku.
Gaia laughed and got up slowly "My friends, a tournament made us cross paths together and we survived threw the darkness of hell itself. I think we should always remember the friends we lost and the promising future that they help us achieve. Shall we remain the best of friends till we meet our mortality!" Gaia spoke loudly. Everyone cheered and agreed to Gaia's words. The Toshiden tournament was finally over for good.
