I lifted her from the ground slowly closing my grip, I didn’t intend killing her now, that would be less fun. Make them suffer a bit before. A giant lightning bolt hit me in the back, catching me off guard. It stung a bit but I recovered quickly. A fire beam hit me in the face now, shit, I had let Nixus loose. She would be annoying. I kept regenerating my face as she burned it but I was actually getting angry now. A cold blast hit my legs and they were frozen. Green light flashed in front of me and I felt a deep cut in my belly. You think you can contain me… Yeah totally. A shrill roar came out of my mouth, I broke the ice and punched the green lights flashing in front of me, I heard a loud crack, and saw Suleos lying unconscious on the airfield.
I ran the mech outside and launched a single missile at Hellius’ feet. This forced him to levitate giving me time to engage all my systems. I needed to reach a ship and get out of here. Then I’d figure out the rest. I was reaching another hangar and it blew up the same way the first one had, another Hellius flew above me. How the hell? There was one hangar left, and when I got there it was empty. Had the team left me? No way.
I remember the day that I showed him my sketches. It had been a calm day, we had talked for hours on end. He shared with me the challenges he was facing mentally, how hard it was for him. I had talked with him so much before but he hadn’t ever shared with me or anyone else how he felt. That night I had more nightmares, so I went to the kitchen and sat on a stool with my sketchbook. I sketched out my nightmare, it helped me calm down. I heard steps behind me and Hellius sat down on a stool next to me, and I didn’t feel a need to hide my book, I simply kept drawing, even more at peace. I felt reassured with him. When I finished my sketch, I closed my book and laid it there. He slid it over to him and flipped through the pages. It felt like sharing something intimate with him, and he liked my work.
The woman roared and took out a blade from her cloak. It was a 3 foot long sword with a wicked shape. Viridi got his bow out and shot 3 arrows at the figure. The arrows landed on the ground, cut in half. This was going to be fun. I sent lightning headed towards the figure and it blocked it with the sword as if it was nothing. I slammed my fist on the ground and sent electric shockwaves at her. Viridi shot another 5 arrows in quick succession. The figure leaped in the air, avoiding the arrows and the shockwave at once. She landed behind us again but this time she hit me in the stomach. I flew about 5 feet back in the air and I felt my body crunch on the landing. The figure took off again.
As soon as Hellius got hold of Nixus I knew we needed to leave. Staying was risking both of our lives, and ultimately, it would weaken the team, making it easier for Hellius to destroy us. I wanted to send out a flare so badly, but that would risk the entire team, at the same time, I couldn’t fight Hellius with Nixus, much less alone. He was too powerful, how could I possibly slow him down. I sent attack after attack to Hellius but only his coat frosted. Eventually he got angry and grabbed me too.
I wake up strapped to a bed. A machine next to me is beeping with my heart rate. Where am I? I have a tremendous headache, what had happened? Last thing I could remember was waking up to a sharp pain in my chest with blood all around me. My regeneration power had failed me, and then I simply blacked out. Now here I was, no pain anywhere, in fact I couldn’t feel anything at all. I was numb all around.
Suleos sprang up and lunged a hit at Tennum. Tennum shot an ice beam at his feet and froze him in place. Suleos summoned his swords and slashed the ice. He jumped at Zomborn and I just saw Suleos fly across the room again. This time I heard a loud crunch when Zomborn hit him. There were now 2 craters in the same wall.
Chloe stood at the edge of the cliff, looking down. She stared at the flowing river, calmly flowing over the rocks. But she wasn’t calm, she had just killed a man. A man that had loved her, but had been taken by the Nekro virus. She had been left with no choice, this troubled her, why hadn’t she been affected by the virus, everyone else she had know, was now dead. Daniel was the last one remaining, and now he was gone too. She dragged Daniel’s body to the edge of the cliff and pushed it off.
I felt as if my ice had melted. We had done it all wrong and if Hellius did anything now, it would be our fault. We were potentially looking at a loss of 3 members of the team. It started that day with… Argh no! That had to happen, it was our only choice. I found myself in the kitchen, I had frozen half of it. Oops. I wondered how Nixus and Viridi were doing. Last time I checked on them they were recuperating but they still had a long way to go until they could fight again. Viridi was in better shape than Nixus though, and I was worried that Nixus may never get better, she was in a depression and had not ingested anything more than water. She looked weak and sad, add tho that the fact that she had broken nearly every bone in her body and punctured a lung. I really hoped our technology would heal her but who knew.
Hold back, hold back, hold back. Don’t slip in. I keep trying so hard to not to give in to my powers, but it’s hard. Its like if I had another side to who I was, it felt like that side was pulling me out of conscience so it could come out. I wish I was like the others, I wish I had limits, but I didn’t have them. Blazerk was getting weaker as we kept fighting, but he was getting increasingly angry. Suddenly Nixus flies directly towards Blazerk and sends 2 beams of white fire straight at his chest. Blazerk swings at her and she’s half a second too late to respond. Blazerk has her in his grip.
It was dawn when I woke up. I couldn’t believe I had slept that long. I looked around and I instantly notice something different. I don’t know what it is, my tent just feels odd. I scan my tent and notice what’s wrong. I had left my pen on top of my notebook, and now the pen was next to it. Someone had entered my tent… I had to find out who entered and what they had done inside my tent. I opened my notebook and I found out the last page had been ripped very carefully, I could see the little bits of paper left by the ripped page. Then noticed something else, my backpack was facing about 90 degrees from the direction of where I had left it.
I came out of the plane and there were 2 heading towards my gate. We saw each other and stopped in our tracks. We stood there for around a minute not knowing what to say until the guy to my right said, “Aye mates, so I’m not alone eh, I was expecting some hot chicks to be left alone with me on a desert planet, turned out to be this.” We all laughed, a bit of humor was becoming necessary. We talked about our stories and what was going on, and we were certain of something, there were beings leading us this very second, and we better follow what they say.
