    Xastristan, meet the Void [EVENT. Combat, some mature scenes]

    Post by Lexia on Thu Dec 15, 2016 9:24 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    The TV flickered, power cutting in an out as the city blocks power began to fail. Pictures, broken recordings kept playing. On a loop. Continuous. Endless. Something that would always keep playing until control had been taken once more. This recording was sent out more than... How long it truly was remained unknown to many. Some considered it mere hours ago that the hell began, but some others claimed weeks. But, in reality, it was merely three days ago, and the flickering and broken sentences kept repeating. The message being sent out, played over and over again.

    "This is a state emergency... Everyone who is able to, help the weak get to the safe houses. Repeated, everyone who is able, guide people to the safe houses. Get the people off the streets. Your safety is our top priori-"

    The words faded as the side of the building was ripped apart, adding it's rubble to the rest of the destruction which lay around them. At its centre, an old and abandoned house lay. The ruins would add to the giant fires which stretched up into the sky. Embers flickered and burnt in the sky, lighting it up like glow flies. Dozens of central city blocks which use to be tall and proud buildings, were instead laying on the ground, stripped bare from what they use to be. Holes, claw markings... The beginnings of turning this great city into a giant wasteland, something which wouldn't be recognised anymore. A howl ripped through the sky, a manic laugh coming from the new source of chaos.

    What the news reports and transmissions left out...

    Was that they couldn't stop it.

    Not even with their machinery.

    Nothing could stop it.

    It's claws slammed into a building, the howl tearing from its throat in a cackled laughter. Two dozen soldiers, military units, defended the escaping citizens by using their guns against it. It laughed, it's tail lashing around to strike half a dozen men away, their bodies smeared against the ground. Shields came up in front of it, blocking the weapons which they used. Nothing was able to get through those damn shields, and the government began to panic.

    The feed of the destruction of their city was live through security cameras, and they erupted in an argument. Some approving the use of nuclear weaponry. Others declining it, saying there were too many innocents around. Others countered that it would save the world from the beast. But, alas, even in their time of trial, they would never agree, always bickering with one another.

    Insanity called upon its powers again, flicking its hand as it opened a portal. Turning to it, it grinned at the scattering people which it saw through them. With a partial laugh, it would dive through the portal, it's claws beginning their arc down and across several cars. They were thrown high, and would land against the masses if they didn't move into the free space around them. Panic stricken, they wouldn't move on their own. One would land in the centre of the masses, two near the left and five on the right.

    "THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD REMEMBER! THE FEAR OF MY WRATH, WRITHE ON THE GROUND WITH TERROR AND ALLOW YOURSELVES TO JOIN THE CRIMSON RIVERS OF MY DOMAIN!" It shouted, grinning manically. Following up its previous attack, Insanity would use its tail, slamming against the base of a small building to their right. A small eruption of stone and bricks would blind them, followed by the building collapsing on top of them.

    If these attacks weren't tended to, Insanity estimated the death toll increasing by at least a few hundred...

    It smirked. This was how life should be.

    But little did the beast know, just over a dozen souls would stand up to it and defy it, try to stop the beast in its tracks. Their orders would be clear, help people get out of there.

    Then subdue the monster.

    ( REFUGE GROUP A. You are up for posting! I think it's clear what you need to do. Remember, work as a team, the masses are very stubborn. (And maybe your characters are too, but whatever!)

    You have 3 days :)

    The beast seemed to take damage from Nebula's attack, but she knew that it wasn't time to celebrate. Nobody else seemed to have approached or attacked I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, which meant that the beast would be focused entirely onto the masked figure.

    And it was. Nebula was tackled from behind, the white beast lunging straight towards her with no time for reactions. Nebula was instantly snatched up in I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý's grasp. being thrown straight into the urban concrete of the city. She was bloodied and bruised head to toe - her armour was made to protect her from close combat blows, not to absorb shock damage. She slid her hand over her face and took the mask off - the edges were digging into her temples. Opting to just lie there aimlessly (she'd done her part; it was time for someone else's move), she was surprised when someone actually came to help her out.

    Water flooded her mouth, washing out the dull, metallic taste of blood. Her ears rang, and she could barely croak out a "Thank you..." But she doubted the man could hear it.

    "Stay here," she heard, once the ringing had stopped. She was put into a sitting position, before the man ran away, yelling. Her breaths were heavy and laboured, and she probably needed intense medical attention. With the amount of corruption Nebula had expelled from herself, she wouldn't be able to use any of her abilities, and she couldn't regen. So she sat down, eyes starting to droop.

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý’s maw billowed with black energy, the substance of darkness dancing between its fangs and dripped from its white maw. A powerful blow was primed at its muzzle and the beast allowed its muzzle to twist into a victorious smirk.

    "Hello, friend!"

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý froze, it’s cunning and forever shining green eyes froze as it suddenly became stunned with disbelief. What did they hope to achieve with such a pathetic square box?! The beast allowed a roar to tear from its throat, a sickening and horrifying noise which was enough to pierce the soul. That sound would quickly turn into that of an agonising pain as loud howls and yips would tear through its core. The noise, the sound... It was shrill an painful against its ears. It’s head shook left and right, the back energy from its maw trailing behind the movements. ”Stop... Stop! STOP!”

    With an infuriated howl, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý’s beam would billow from its jaw, sweeping it across the ground to clear away the annoying and rather yippy dogs. It would remain frozen for a few moments, the beam requiring its attention so that it wouldn’t billow back and explode in its face. Powerlines, buildings, cars were torn in half from the destructive beam.

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý’s beam would end suddenly, the mobility returning to the creature as it would turn, its wicked eyes snapping left and right as it attempted to find the humans that continuously stopped it. She snarled. No.. It snarled as its gaze rested upon the creatures that refused to let it have its fun. ”Must you keep attempting these futile attempts of preventing me from doing anything? I’m trying to cleanse your stupid world of these unintelligible life forms.”

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý would slowly walk towards them, the paws beginning their deathly glow as it’s paws sparked, every step allowing the ground to burn beneath it. ”What do you really want to accomplish? There’s nothing that can save you from dying~ Let me just end it for you. It will be much nicer and I promise...

    I’ll give you a quick death!”


    With that, its claws would curl under the cement around its paws. A grunt of exertion would come from its throat before flicking slabs at the pesky humans. Five would come crashing down on top of the pair, Arik and Leif. Another three she- no, it would the tear free three more to lift and slam down against the ground over the safe house. She hated... It snarled, before taking several swift steps forward to bring its claws down upon them.

    Portals would near I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, allowing others to come to the field if they so desired to come to their bloodied deaths.

    Stupid creatures...

    ( Sorry for the late reply, love me!

    One of many things he noted of this creatures was how elusive it was. Again and again, it relied on the portals to move into different sectors. He hated portals. How was anyone going to stop a creature that could go anywhere it pleases? He did want it to resolve with fighting, but neither did he want to sit here and ponder, with every second lost could be another citizen dead. After a moment's rest, he assessed his surroundings. There were no more screams, no signs of life of the citizens. He supposed he had evacuated them and cleared this sector for now.

    Sly was about to consider moving to the next, then realised that his only way of getting between sectors was through Cedric. Now that he had was gone to do his own thing, Sly was left on his own. Then again, it seemed the portal I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý was using lingered. He stared at it, wondering what would happen if he stepped into it. It was a portal after all, but he was unsure if it was specifically only for the beast. Then again, what else could he do? The people would be dead or gone by the time he arrived in even the closest sector. Having recovered some fatigue and strains, he darted for it and jumped in. As he did so, all his structures within the safehouse would dissipate and fly back towards his new location.

    The sensation was... odd to say the least. It was freezing cold, but also relaxing? He did not want to stay to ponder it, but as he looked up, he found himself in a different sight. Sure enough, there were people here, but not just the citizens. The first he found was Arik, along with a blonde haired man who... looked almost quite similar to Sly. He arrived just as I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý pulled out slabs of concrete from beneath and lunging most of it towards the air, a few heading to one of the safehouses. Crap! Sly thought, an arm out and Mirage formed in his grip. There were people in there, but before he could consider throwing the blade, his attention went back to Arik. He stiffened, heart pounding as he realised what choice he had to make.

    If he were to think in numbers, the safehouse would be the best. But Arik was a companion of the guild. If he died right in front of him...

    Sly growled between his teeth, looking at the safehouse. What was he doing? He should not stall for time. Just pick one! He pulled Mirage all the way as back as his arm would allow and, with all his strength, flung the weapon towards the concrete heading for the safehouse. When the blade left, his arm started to flare and Sly bellowed, clutching his arm as he fell onto one knee. The pain seared him, from the forearm up to his shoulder. He forced himself to look up, the blade having reached the slabs. With a high hum, Mirage released a sphere of a blue energy, radiating out, a dome shield that pushed away the slabs and hurling one or two back towards I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý. Mirage would then clatter against the wall of the building and onto the ground, far away from Sly.

    I'm sorry, he whispered, looking up to Arik, still holding onto his arm.

    Arik watched as the blonde seemed to use his little robot friend to try and distract the creature- something which he wouldn't have expected. The man seemed to have liked the little robot, and Arik knew he wouldn't have thrown his laptop at the beast. Although, it did seem to do something as the white creature froze, before letting out a roar that left the male frozen in shock. It made his gut twist, he had never heard a noise like that before. He was glad he wasn't a were right now, the sound probably would have caused him pain at that point.

    If only there was more he could do like this, telepathy wouldn't do any good, not that he could use it anyways. The beast was too far away to throw anything at it, takes too much time for the dead, probably still be beaten as a were, and he wasn't planning to use any of these abilities anyways. He was a strategist, not a fighter. He worked with the team fighting, not directly fighting. Brains not brawn. The only thing he could hope for would be to keep as many people alive as possible from this thing, and hope that he didn't die in the process. Arik tapped his communicator again, only to still be receiving static. He at least hoped that they were okay.

    The creature's beam brought him back from his thinking, and it was a good thing too. The beam went through practically everything. How were they going to stop that? Arik wondered if their efforts would be for anything, or if they were all going to be for nothing. The were watched as the white beast finished it's beam and started to walk, it's paws sparkling, something that looked beautiful but he knew was deadly. But what he didn't know was what to do, and all he could do was sit there and stare. The grotesque creature was somehow mesmerizing, and he didn't even hear what it was saying. Maybe he was just too shocked to be.

    Once he realized what it was doing after that though, he began to run. Looking over his shoulder he stumbled a bit on the ground, but regain his footing soon after. The beast had thrown chunks of concrete at him, and he wasn't sure how he was going to avoid them. As of now, running seemed to be his best bet- there were no buildings close enough or that looked safe enough to go in. The pieces had too much of a range to fully avoid if he went to the side. Every step he took they came closer, so he turned and kept running, hopeful enough to avoid them.

    It wasn't enough, and he felt something hit his back and the ground hit his face before everything went dark.

    Leif was pelted with shards of rubble as the beast ripped out chunks of concrete from the surrounding buildings. He wasn't able to fight, and all that he could do was try to keep the monster away from other people, but he was selfish. He didn't want to get hurt. He would feel bad that other people died, but it's not like he knew any of them personally.

    As he began to run away from the chunks of concrete that were being thrown, it felt like time slowed down for him. He began to think about his accomplishments, his family, his friends. His regrets. This must be what it's like when you know you're about to die, he thought.

    Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted an alleyway. It seemed like it would be safe enough for him, but what had happened to the man who had asked him to distract the monster? Leif still didn't know his name, but he figured that if they ever got out of this mess, they would have time to talk. He peeked out from around the corner of the alley and spotted a form a little ways ahead in the direction opposite the beast. It didn't seem to be moving, and he didn't remember seeing on his way in. He looked back towards the monster and hoped that it would be distracted long enough for him to get a closer look at whoever was laying in the middle of the street. An alley across the street came into view and Leif decided that he would run across and get closer to whoever was hurt.

    Quby had been silent the entire time, but Leif didn't seem to notice. Quby knew who the person in the street was, and it wasn't about to tell Leif, or he would go running off doing something reckless like try and save the man in the street. Before it knew what had happened, they were already in the other alley across the street, and it was only a matter of time before Leif saw who had fallen.

    Leif was getting closer to the figure in the street as he ran from alley to alley, taking small breaks in between. By now, he figured that he would be able to see who it was, and he took a look out of the alley towards the man. He squinted so he could see farther and his teeth clenched as he saw who it was. He knew he couldn't be selfless and go face the beast himself, but he did know that he had enough strength to pull the man he had been with earlier into the alley. Leif set Quby down and motioned for it to stay put while he went to help. It was his job, after all, to help people.

    The blonde ran over to the man and reached under his arms to pull him to safety. It seemed that he was unconscious, which definitely wasn't a good thing in this situation. He struggled for a few seconds as he found a way to lift up the man's body and leave his legs dragging on the ground. It only took a few minutes to get the unconscious man into the alley where Quby was. He had lost his water somewhere between the monster and the alley, but hopefully they wouldn't need some for a while.

    Yuuki exhaled, reigning in her pants as her heartbeat slowed. The monster--Lexia--had disappeared, but Yuuki could still most definitely hear and see the rampage that it had left behind in its wake. She grimaced, and flexed her artificial limb, hearing the slight creaking of the knee joint.  Ah, a bit damaged. At least it was still in functioning order, otherwise Yuuki would have been out for the count. She hummed, creating a mental note in her brain to buy some new material for the leg. Brushing off dust and light rubble, the young woman glanced around cautiously. Rubble everywhere. Fallen buildings, dead bodies, people cowering inside the small shops littered underneath the damaged skyscrapers. What a mess. What an absolute, goddamn mess.

    Well, at least she had cleared most of the citizens away. They should be safe for now, unless I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý decided to come back, but Yuuki doubted it. Multiple portals were opened around her block, and Yuuki eyed them curiously. These were the things that I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý used to travel places? No wonder I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý could so suddenly appear and then disappear right after. What a terrifying monster. As Yuuki neared the portal, she could feel the very energy that the monster radiated, emit from the portal itself. Was it dangerous? What if it was only meant for monsters like I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý? Yuuki worried her bottom lip hesitantly. But she had to take a chance, if she wanted to get to I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý fast enough. She took a deep breath, and plunged through.

    It was an odd feeling, as if something cold was crawling down her spine. But she did not have enough time to consider it, as her feet immediately touched down on the rough ground. And lo and behold, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý was crutched right in front of her. And had arrived right on the scene of gigantic concrete slabs heading in a direction, seemingly to crush the warehouse that was housing citizens. Out of the corner of her eye, she could see the familiar figures of Arik and Sly, jolting violently when she saw Arik get knocked down by a piece of rubble.

    Yuuki jolted violently, the thought registering in her brain that, Arik could have died from that hit. She hesitated for a few seconds when she noticed another blonde figure darting forward to drag Arik away to safety, and breathed a slight sigh of relief. At least Arik was out of danger, for now.

    Sly was the one who was still in trouble.

    Yuuki pivoted, taking off towards Sly with an extra boost of speed. She skidded to a halt next to him, crouching down as she balanced on the balls of her feet. She frowned at the way he was holding his arm. Was it broken? Sprained? Whatever it was, it was injured of some kind. "Sly, we need to leave," she said urgently, offering a hand towards his non-injured arm. "Let me help you up." Her eyes were still trained on I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, carefully observing whether the monster was to make another move.

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý would stand and watch, the ever present sneer and smile still incredibly visible on its face. The beast continued to lower the silky white arm, blood smeared across its shoulder from the wounds it previously held. It throbbed painfully, the pain antagonising it further as it was still a physical being, much to its annoyance. The pain, annoyance and the constant shrieking of the people it relentlessly slaughtered kept fed its bloodthirsty nature, but kept making it angry every time it heard their cries.

    If you don't like it, then stop! You don't need to kill them!

    Its paw gently came in contact with the ground, the paw pads keeping its vicious claws from the ground. By the time this happened, it's ears pricked backwards, noticing a rather peculiar sound. Turning its great head, it witnessed a blue dome spring forth from a small device. I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý's body froze. The sadistic smile faltered. That was their magic... An anger bubbled deep in its chest as it slowly turned its head further. It was here. Where was it! The concrete would rebound, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý knew that and its body would sink to the ground, spreading its legs so its belly and chest would brush against it. The pieces would sail harmlessly past it. As its claws still burned and glowed with sheer power, the same couldn't be said for its portals. Slowly, they would seal shut, but not before someone could come through them. Who that someone was caught its eye. Or mainly the movement did.

    A snarl came from it as it raised its back once more, stalking forward towards the female that came through. It froze midstride, the faint power tugging at its core and it growled, predicting where the female would run to. That human... He has it! That filthy scum!

    Don't you dare... The weak shadow in its mind growled with a ferocity that caught I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý by surprise, it's next step faltering. If you stop distracting me, I'll make their death quick~! Keep doing so and it shall be much longer and quite torturous... A punishment that that creature deserves for stealing it!

    With that, the shadow would falter and I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý turned its attention back to them. With a speed that was unnatural, the beast would launch itself forward, the claws shimmering overhead for a downwards strike on the pair, Sly and Yuuki. Its long tail would then drag across the ground, aiming for their legs.

    "YOU FILTHY BEAST! How DARE YOU STEAL IT!" I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý roared, its voice carrying across the rubble, causing people even in the safehouse to flinch in fear. To where the male would dodge, its claws came across in a sideswipe. "RELINQUISH IT! GIVE IT BACK TO ME!" It howled, its fangs flashing as it would attempt to bite Sly as well. If the female tried to get closer again, the tail would swing around for a second time to strike her.


    "We need more support, the beast is here." The radio crackled in the dark, hidden beneath the window in the remains of an old home. Crouched in the same room were another eleven people, four of them injured, but all still willing to put up a fight against the beast that plagued their streets. "Understood, backup will be there in approximately five minutes. Be advised, we will be bringing in highly explosive weaponry. Evacuate all civilians out of the safehouse."

    "That's no longer an option, civilians trapped under the claws of the beast."

    "Understood."

    The radio crackled, dead on the other side. The man sighed, pressing his back against the wall as he peered through the window again. Foolishly, people would attempt to fight this beast... But he knew that there was no hope. However, in the middle of thinking that, he witnessed two people entering an alleyway, one seemingly dead. After instructing another to take his position, the man ran down onto the ground floor, closing the distance rapidly before asking the blonde haired man, "What happened to him?" He would inquire, bending over to help the unconcious figure down. From there, he would wait for Leif to give his answer before he would treat the wound with the limited supplies that he had in his vest.

    It was a warm day. Windy, but only with a slight chill. The chill suggested autumn, that and the scent of water in the air. The plants were dying too, not green with new growth. More things started to come to him, like the hardness of the ground beneath him and the scurrying of squirrels as they looked for nuts to store. A horde of amphibians sounded alongside the running water of a small river, and the chilled wind shook the leaves on trees and the grass on the ground. To his right there was warmth, coming off of the woman next to him. Her skin was dark, but not as dark as it was in the full-blown summer. Her hair was bright, but still held tones of the earth. She smiled at him, teeth bright and face full of happiness. Her eyes sparkled with mischief as she got up and began to run, her face looking back at him as if to encourage him, or to tease him.

    He knew she would never go too far, but he followed the woman anyways.

    Her laughter flooded the forest, and she called to him, "Arik, come find me!"

    "You're so close..."


    The male was still out, the only sight of him still being alive was the slight rise and fall on his chest.

    The last he saw of Arik was the slab falling upon him. He closed his eyes, looking away as the heavy mass cracked and shook the ground. If only for a moment. Grievance had to come later. Hand out, he conjured the ten blades of Apotheosis, the rapiers gleaming and floating behind him, mimicking his wings. He barely knew what he was doing, if not trying to kill I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, but without Mirage, he was incredibly vulnerable. Quickly he commanded the blades in front of him, surrounding his front with an arc of blades before looking around for some cover.

    A quiet tap took his attention, and Sly turned to meet Yuuki's mask. Immediately she extended her hand, ordering him to leave the area. He responded with a nod, but barely moved his hand when a dark shadow plunged over the two. Just as he was going to look up, Sly dove to the side. The ground behind him exploded, the impact blowing him off a couple of metres until he fell onto his buttocks. A bloodcurdling howl made him quiver, but he never caught what the beast said, when suddenly something struck against his side. The next moment, he was skidding across the ground, a chime heard as something metallic dropped onto the ground.

    Forcing his eyes open, Sly willed the blades in front of him again, and blocked the giant maw from clamping onto him. The fangs closed with a sickening snap, and a split second of hesitation made him wonder if that would have been his end had he not conjured Apotheosis. Then his heart jumped. Fumbling for his device, all he found was the side of his pants, and he stared at where his timepiece used to be.

    But the blades were still working. It had to be here somewhere...

    After a quick look around, a glint among the rubble, some distance from him, caught his eye. The first instinct he had was to rush up to and grab it. He barely made the first step when a heavy flare shot up his legs and he collapsed onto the ground. Sly hissed, clutching his leg. His pants were torn open, revealing spots of red and white, revealed with his skin pulled back. Damn it! He thought, bringing forth his blades close to him, ready to make a last stand, if needed, against the beast.

    "I- I think he was hit by some of the debris from that...  thing pulled up," Leif answered to the stranger who had just entered the alley.  He assumed that the man was there to help, since at this point in time, most people weren't fighting in the usual turf wars.  He stepped aside to let the man have a closer look at his fallen comrade.  After this was all over, he'd have to ask the unconscious man to grab a drink with him, especially since they still hadn't been introduced properly.

    At the moment, nobody, including himself, was dressed to impress, but he felt that he could let it slide this time, especially with all that was going on.  Quby was still silent though all of this, even though it probably could have identified the man lying on the ground, and possibly even scanned to find what was wrong with him.

    Leif was so busy focusing on someone other than himself for once that he didn't notice that he was bleeding through his white shirt.  Or at least, he didn't notice until he stood up and his shirt pulled away from some of the dry blood, feeling like tape had been pulled off of his skin.  He cringed as he saw the blood on his shirt, a stain that would probably never come out.  It was starting to hurt, now that he focused on it.  "You wouldn't happen to have any disinfectant and bandage on you, would you?" he asked the man who had just entered the alley.

    ( Sorry, time's up. )

    ARIK! NO! SLY! STOP! PLEASE, I'M BEGGING YOU! STOP!

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý's strikes were firm, their movements purposeful and carrying the force of an ancient. The beast smirked, it's manic grin stretching across its white hide. A sickening smile that showed its white shining teeth. His blood, the so called 'knight's, was scatter across the ground. It could almost smell it. "You dare take it away from me?" I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý snarled, taking a forceful step forward.

    Crack.

    The beast froze, its gaze dropping. No. S-S-Surely... Surely not... It's face dropped, the smirk completely vanishing from its face as it's eyes widened in terror. No...

    YOU IDIOT! HOW COULD YOU BE SO CARELESS!

    The paw rose, the blackened energy doing their terrible work. It's face visibly paled. I was meant to guard it... Slowly, ever so slowly, it's claws faded from their blackened colours, the pale paw picking up the shards of the broken timepiece. I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý rose the broken case into it's hand, its eyes softening, mellowing at the sight of the watch. A piece of time, the counterpart to its destruction, shattered and killed by its own carelessness.

    You...

    Stupid...

    Creature!

    Give it back to him. Fucking do it you son of a bitch. You failed the only real reason you're here. You YOURSELF BROKE IT. Sly never was going to do that! GIVE IT BACK!
    The voice cracked across its mind. I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý faltered, it's heart tearing in two from destroying something so close to itself. Creation... Ever so slowly, its paw coiled around the device. The gears were broken, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý could feel the small things tap on the inside of its paw.  Slowly it stepped forward, a small growling sound coming from it.

    The steps were slow, shaky, unbalanced as it tried to keep itself from falling with only three legs to support its incredible weight. Its eyes were soft, the faint blue tugging against the edges of the green. If Sly were to try and back away from it, the creature would keep following him until he was cornered, a constant snarl coming from its maw. But the eyes glistened gently and, if he were to notice, tears gently fell down the pearly pelt to stain the ground.

    If he stopped backing away, the paw would raise for a few moments, before releasing it. Returning the timepiece to him, a sorrowful expression painted onto its face.

    Almost as if it were saying it was sorry.


    The soldier would glance to the beast, noticing that its behaviour had changed drastically. Perhaps it was the desperate break which they had needed to turn the tide of this battle. At the mention of the disinfectant, they nodded. "Yea, I have some. Just give me a few moments, this fella seems like he does need a bit more help..." He muttered, taking out a bottle of alcohol. He would pass this up to Leif, before placing a hand on Ariks wound, pressing against it gently to stem the blood flow. "When he's moveable, I need to get you both out of here.

    We're expecting more drastic backup within the next five or so minutes. Evacuating you and your friend is my top priority. But are there any others that we need to evacuate before it's too late?"
    He would ask, his finger ready to relay the information via radio.

    Today was going to finally be the end of that beast, he could almost sense it.

    His vision blurred and he almost collapsed, finding something to lean on. He did not feel it, but he must had hit his head against something. It was getting difficult for him to stand, but he had to keep moving. His grip squeezing on one of the Apotheosis blades, he stabbed it into the ground and used it as a cane. Carefully he wrapped his other hand's fingers into a grip, and another blade appeared there. Though he would not test his sprained arm. The monster showed off a large grin, droplets of blood, presumably Sly's, dripping from the ends of its claws. He needed to get the timepiece back.

    Then it took one fatal step.

    Its claws, still black in its energy, stepped over the device and a sudden pop was heard. The device under it hissed, giving off an unstable glow until it moved away its claws. Multiple streams of magic poured from the device, curling into the air and dissipating. Like a flame that was just extinguished, until there was nothing left. The slit pupil of the dragon eye on the cover of the device narrowed further and further, until the line was blurred into the paling blue iris, similar to the deceased. Then it was quiet. What was left of the timepiece was the broken device, gears and other components splayed out all over the ground, and what remained inside the timepiece slowly ceased to tick.

    Sounds of metal shifting and sizzling echoed all over Sly, snapping him from his petrified state, and he looked down at his blades. They looked like they were melting, the enchanted gears either fading into the air or collapsing under his grip and rained below him. Same goes for the others around him. Until there was nothing left, saved for one white and clearish gear in his palm - Apotheosis.

    His hand trembled, refusing to even squeeze the gear. The timepiece. It was destroyed. A flood of different emotions overwhelmed him to the point that he did not know what to feel. Dismay? Shock? Grief? Anger? His device was destroyed. No. He could repair it. He just needed to-

    He met the huge eyes of the beast, just inches from his face. Sly staggered back, a small shriek leaving him until he collapsed onto the ground. He tried to back away, but the monster continued forward. He finally mustered the energy to squeeze upon the gear. But nothing happened. No blade formed in his hand. Not even a single piece floated around him. Come on... please... he thought, trying again and again until he met the wall of a collapsed building.

    As if by instinct, Sly raised his hand in between him and the beast. Lex... he said weakly, his voice trembling. ...please... it's me...

    The beast did not even falter upon those words before it suddenly dropped something on him. The mangled remains of his timepiece. It was not moving, and many components were already missing and damaged by its magic. There was no way he could repair it. Sly looked back up at the beast, suddenly unaware of the device on his lap as he wandered what it would do next. At this point, if nobody came, if his words failed to reach Lexia, he would be dead at this spot. But something told him otherwise. Being this close, the edges of her sclera showed a gradient of blue. Lexia's eyes. She was fighting it?

    Sly would remain where he was, confused and surprised, among other emotions, all of which worked to freeze him in place.

    He ran, trying to follow her. Her voice was taunting, sounding so close yet nowhere in sight. She wasn't in the trees, there wasn't enough rustling and swaying of the branches. It was as if she turned into a ghost. But it didn't stop him, he kept going. It wasn't like he was tiring anyways. He wondered how much she would blend into the environment, and was soon answered with a sight of her hair. She was just standing there, the wind had faltered leaving the area still. He walked up and reached out to her, so close-

    It was then he had regained consciousness. His eyes fluttered open to someone he didn't recognize. Arik tensed, his body still aching. After a bit he realized that the person didn't seem to be harming him. A question racked his brain- what was going on? He couldn't remember much from before he got hit.

    Leif winced as he softly dabbed a cotton swab covered in disinfectant over his wound.  Most of the time he was pretty careful around sharp objects in fear of getting his clothes ripped, but he figured that this time it would be unavoidable considering the circumstances.  He finished bandaging up his wound when he heard the stranger say something about evacuating him and the man on the ground.  The blonde picked up Quby and shook his head to the stranger saying, "I don't think there was anyone else but the three of us.  There was someone up the road away from that...  Thing... but they seem to have gotten out of the area."

    He didn't notice the man on the ground wake up at first, but Quby did.  "Hey look, he's awake!" Glad-One said.  Leif looked down towards the man on the ground and saw that, indeed, he was awake.  He was extremely happy that his comrade had woken up, but it didn't show on his face.  He had been so out of it for the past few days that most of the time he had no idea what he was doing.  Even the events from just the last few hours didn't make sense to him.  He had almost completely forgotten how he had thrown Quby in the air as a distraction, and he had absolutely no idea how he had gotten away from the monster and into the alley.  Leif sighed and closed his eyes, holding Quby tight in his arms.  I wish this would all just end soon.  I really miss having a normal life.

    Of course, if he had joking about when he had mentioned the tavern... She would have been rather frustrated. It took her a shamefully long amount of time to even remotely recognise this man. The talisman that was normally covering his eye seemed... Different. As well as his normal attire. It took her actually stepping back and looking at the familiar sounding person to actually recognise them entirely.

    Her thoughts went back to what the man before her had said. Admittedly, in a round about and rather twisted way, Cedric wasn't wrong. They had been out for a few different things. But that was another life- not so long ago that she had been torn from due to a series of unfortunate circumstances. However, here she stood, before him. A smile as gentle as the sun, her eyes glistening with tears. "Honestly, I ain't a tavern girl, I knew... someone like you. If not you. Kinda." No. She wasn't able to help herself. Emotions drove her forward as a gentle finger traced down his face, "Ced..." The motion faltered slightly. Her eyes narrowed just as much as she looked to him, the pain that flared within those stony cyan eyes was almost a dead giveaway for her. Something that she always had hated about that man hadn't resolved- not in this place. "This world hasn't been as kind to you as it could have been, sorry about the touch." I just didn't expect someone so like you to be here as well... Dammit, you even have that exact same colour hair as who I know. But here you stand, someone so entirely different, yet someone so similar to who I remember and know.

    Her jaw clenched firmly. Withdrawing her pale and scarred hand, her eyes looked back to the beast that tore through the city, the form slipping through portals, leaping through the air like it was nothing before it. "Dammit, you're not my Cedric! But I'd be damned if I was here and didn't lend you a hand and throw this places beast down." Her voice, she didn't want to do what she was even suggesting- but the female didn't have a choice in the matter. She wouldn't leave this realm for him to fight that thing alone- but she had an odd feeling...

    Something was missing from Cedric, the internal being telling her of it instantly. They didn't stand a chance against what was leveling the city. Or maybe they did... But her memories reminded her of how he called out to something- someone in that beast. Lex...ia? He knew her. And she doubted he would raise a hand to truly hurt the monster. Looking around her, the technology was unfamiliar to her, everything more advanced to her eyes which she had remembered. However, through the times, through the ages which could pass in a world, there was one thing that was for certain. Even if everything else had changed, everywhere had one thing stayed true. One thing that basically everything would rely on. But it was this one thing which the female was able to control the most. Not the air. Not the warmth. Not the earths around her. Not the flickering fires. Not the vicious winds... Not the shocking lightning... But something much more necessary.

    Water.

    From the burst pipelines, from the moisture in the air around her, from the tears that fell from her face, the woman knew what she had to do. For him. Her form readily pulled away from Cedric, her powers shifting and turning, flowing with the power help between her fingers as she walked. Her voice silently called to the liquids, drawing them from the grounds. Her shoulders slumped, eyes slowly closed as she called from the furthest reaches that she could beneath the grounds. Tilting her head skyward, a small, disheartened sigh escaped her. To save a world which was unfamiliar to her, all that seemed to be for the sake of creation here...

    That was what her task was before her.

    Emerald eyes snapped open, the partially blind eye uncaring of the light around her. The images were blurry, but nothing that she wasn't able to deal with. Water pulled from the grounds, within the range of 3 feet, became a swirling torrent before her. "You may not remember me truly, Cedric. But just remember. Don't talk to around talking to random chicks too much." She gave him a smirk, her mind going back so long ago. "After all, it can have rather shocking consequences, which I can promise, they will just flow into you, like a torrent looking to wash your soul away. Before those electrifying claws dig into you once again and zap you back to reality."

    The female paused in her half stride. She needed to remember what she just said, a sad smile on her face.

    Her feet took her into a run, hearing that beast near her. The female ignored the cries of people telling her to run. Continuously, the water twister called upon her powers, drawing them further and further to her. The water billowing around her followed in her wake, like hounds tending to their masters. These waters were hers to control and no one was stopping her. It didn't take long for her to reach the collapsed section where the monster was standing over him, someone whose blood stained the grounds. Her feet skidded to a stop, the raging liquid almost howling around her from her anger. That monster was going to destroy his world.

    Sure. She wouldn't kill. But neither would she allow it to keep going how it was. Just as she was thinking such thoughts, the monster's muzzle screwed up once more. It's sickly green eyes twisting into a dark and hate filled gaze. The somewhat slender monster pulled back up onto its hind legs, slowly opening the jaw in anger. Light flickered from the razor teeth as the mouth opened, the monster's black claws suddenly igniting in it's paws.

    The woman rose her hand, her foot pushing from the ground to begin the rotation. Calling according to her mind, a section of her water tore free from the rest of the parts, forming a shaft of ice in extending either side of her palm. Frowning in concentration, her hand grasped the frozen liquid, before finishing the rotation. She changed what sourced the momentum, extending her arm as her hand released the lance.

    What she was a master of.

    The ice landed true, the weapon crashing against the white, silky hide. With a sickly howl of pain, it pulled away from the person beneath it. Unstable from being on it's two hind legs, it came crashing down onto its side, the ice spear impaled in the pale fur. Sickly blood welled from the wound, before a snarl tore from its mouth. She watched as she walked, undisturbed as it pushed itself to its feet, the waters the only thing that she would ever rely on. Though she was out of her element, she wouldn't hold back so easily. The female ascended the rocks, defiantly standing before the monster as she saw the other figure, after collecting something, pulled away from the beast.

    The fury of the waters didn't leave her side, matching the anger, malice, blood thirsty appearance of that beast. Her voice sounded, calling out to it;

    "You filthy animal, release what you hold, release them from their prison that you enslave them in! Let your host free!"

    Apparently it didn't like that. The monstrous being was upon her in mere moments- but her water was just as swift. Slamming into the rocks upon her command, she was sent backwards, landing lightly on the heels of her feet, the monster's black claws cleaving chunks of stone free. Emerald eyes locked. Waters came back to her- just as the beast acted against her again, it's speed and agility something not even she expected- and she'd seen some incredibly fast things in her life. The female dove to her right, the blackened claws slamming down once more, a black dancing from its maw. Bitterly she jumped to her feet again. Hell, she'd seen angels flight- and this monster left them for dead!

    Sly don't you see me? Do you not believe that I am sorry my love? Goodness why do you look through me like I was glass... You call to me, you reach to touch me, but I can see the fear... the fear that feeds me! The anger that drives my body forward for you are the reason that it's destroyed! You, your stupid meddling! No! You could run, my love-please, before I can't...

    The beasts sickly green came back with a vengeance that caused it's shadow to howl in pain, the mind being almost torn in half from the sudden emergence of that beast once more. It was this mans fault that the timepiece was destroyed! He should have let it rest! It's muzzle suddenly flipped, the man before it seeing the reaction. His cries came again, begging that thing, that 'Lexia' to come back to him. To stop. A sneer crossed it's face, "Yes. Call to her, you pathetic excuse of a being. It's your own fault that the timepiece is broken! You never should have had it, you stupid being! Oh how I'm going to enjoy tearing you limb from limb, I'll spill your guts across the grounds, I'll make you beg and scream for mercy. I'll make you beg and pray that I have mercy on your soul in this life and every other life that you live! For your deeds, I'll make you suffer a thousand times over!" It howled, the claws starting the ignition of the familiar black flames, which would soon dance across the surface of the smooth claws. Oh how it was going to enjoy this!

    Fuelled and focused on ending that sickly mans existence, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý allowed a howl to come from it, one of fury and anger. A sound that chilled the hearts of men. It could see and smell that man's fear, screaming for his Lexia to come back. Oh how pathetic. His pleas just made the monster more angry, heightened its fury, causing it to rear back onto it's hind legs. A smirk was building on its face, the manic teeth being shone in the faint light as it happily ignored the mind within as it begged I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý to stop. But no. Oh no. Not. This. TIME!

    It's barred fangs opened, the layers of teeth opening slowly, seeing the dread in that mans eyes. Accepting his fate. The claws ignited. It's killing stroke began.

    Only for a heavy thud to slam into it's side.

    The pain and shock of the sudden attack startled the beast, a howl of agony tore from its maw. The spear of ice broke through its hide, stabbing deep into its abdomen where the soft flesh was exposed for those few moments. It staggered backwards, off balance, before crashing down onto the rocks to the right of Sly. The spear stuck awkwardly from its side, before it's claws slashed the thing clear from it- the ice that the claws touched vanishing into nothing whereas the other pieces crashing to the ground. Inside its hide, the shard of ice remaining was easily pulled out with its teeth, flicking the shard to the side.

    Then it stood.

    Forgetting the original prey as it grabbed the remnants of the timepiece and got the hell out of there, it slowly stalked towards the female as she ascended the rocks. Hair as pale as it's snowy hide, eyes as stunning as its own, it snarled low, the waters billowing around her indicating she was the one who began the attack. For a few moments, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý paused. As it stood, eyes narrowed, it recognized it as a women from before, the one which that weird feathered man decided to go and save. With a small snarl building in it's throat, the claws readied themselves, walking on its paw pads to ensure that the ground beneath it wasn't completely torn to shreds as it moved.

    "You filthy animal, release what you hold, release them from their prison that you enslave them in! Let your host free!"

    I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý growled. Apparently she still had her steadfast arrogance and idiocy from earlier, daring to stand up to it! Launching itself at the smiling girl, it took its claws down upon the stones in moments- but the girl was fast. She'd already mustered her powers and threw herself out of the road of the strike, landing several meters away from the building, from I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, to the monsters left. I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý snarled, not letting her regain her own ground. Diving forward, it's claws came down again against her.

    Only for her to dive out of it's way again, breaking into a roll to break the fall before springing back to her feet once more. Roaring in anger, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý's maw continued to spill out the black power building from it's anger and rage. Instead of directly attacking her, the monster's claws dug into the ground further.

    It carved out a large slab of the broken buildings around them, tearing them up before slamming it with the tail. Incredibly thick, and a speed which would cause her attention to be diverted, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý opened up a portal to the right of her. As soon as the slab had cleared, the monster dove through, maw twisting into a howl. If she managed to block that shot, it's form dove forward, claws aiming to strike down across her again.

    Relying on it's speed and sudden attack, it's teeth also would lash out in the form of a powerful bite to wherever she dodged to, aiming to cripple either of her eyes or arms, legs, body parts in general. Either would work for I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý, just so long as it tore through her flesh and allowed it to taste the sweetness of her warm blood!  

    It's maw also sparked, preparing to unleash the hell of the void against her. Timing it so that it'd be unleashed right after she finished the retaliation to the two strikes, I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý slammed its feet into the ground, concentrating the beam. Before unleashing it, almost at a point blank range, aiming the powers straight at that woman who dared to defy it, who dared to attack it!

    In the distance, the rumble of machinery, both helicopter and other heavy things were heard. I̧̨͜n̡͡sa͏͝ņ̸͜i̧͡t͢͜ý would need to take the fight elsewhere if they got much closer.

    The wanderer didn't have much time to regain her bearing from her roll before the monster was moving once more. Lexia, was that her name? Or was it something else- because she doubted that Cedric would make acquaintances with people who were normally like this and attempting to murder everything in their path. Not to mention that fact that she was already...

    Vyllaea didn't have the time to finish the thought. The rather large slab, probably the size of a 10ft boulder, was thrown straight at her. With an annoyed snarl, she called her waters to her aid. It wove in front of her, becoming dense- incredibly dense as it formed her own barricade against the killing concrete. Her ice didn't break when the rather tough building materials slammed into it. However, cracks appeared all through it form the impact, barely able to actually hold it back. The female didn't have time to even frown when her eye caught a flicker of movement to her right.

    A black portal opened up, the manic white monster diving through. Those claws that seemed to be coated in living black flames were being brought down to strike against her shoulder. With a snarl of her own, her anger awakening her own beast that lived within her, the female dove to the side- narrowly missing the claws, but keeping in the same distance to keep manipulating the frozen water. Which she did instantly.

    The female called the water to her, the melting on her command to dash to her. Instantly, it remade a pillar of ice- the beasts fangs biting into it instead of her. The beast seemed not to care as she ripped the ice back to her, its legs bracing itself firmly apart. The deadly black flames built within its maw before the power quickly began to condense in on itself. Her eyes widened, the beast was mere feet from her. Dropping to the ground, the female barely dodged the beam that howled over her head. However, some of the water that she controlled wasn't so lucky, being torn from existence in mere moments upon being touched by that black beam.

    The female rolled towards the monster, using the remainder of her water to unleash a flurry of frozen spears against it while it was pinned into using that beam. She commanded them forward, to slash through anything that they could, before returning. However, she aimed them towards the monsters shoulders as it was still stationary from the beam. Even as the beam moved slowly towards her, she made sure to keep her distance, not wanting her own being to be ripped away from that life and into the next.

    After clearing it, she pulled the waters back to her, forcing them to be their liquid state again, her form remaining in a partially crouched position. In her right hand, her waters quickly formed a staff of sorts, knowing that she'd need it for more sudden twists and turns to get away from that beast. Not to mention the other perks it offered her....
