The Final Confrontation part 1

When it comes to life or death vampires usually choose death, for they gain more from the choice of death in this world than life. This world is very close to a heaven a vampire never could see nor imagine. To all of them, the last thing they would ever want is to see is it all come to an end.

Nightmare, Zero, Brandis, LD, Ivory and Athame’ travel back toward the hidden city with a surprised new alliance in that of the Vampire Mistress- Ana Mortis.

Brandis: Good, you talked her into it…

Cutting Zero off before he can get out a response.

Mortis: Hardly… I’m doing this mostly on my own…

LD: Really?

Mortis begins to walk toward the window of the cockpit to look out side of it.

Mortis: Indeed… you see my kind… my family… my self… Have worked hard to get where we are today… the perfect paradise… and I’m not going to sit idly by and let some crazed religious asshole in a white coat blink it out of existence….

LD: Doesn’t surprise me… you vampires are all alike... only care about yourselves…

Nightmare: How did you know she was a vampire?

Cutting off Nightmare and walking to Mortis direction in disgust.

LD: The way she moves… the way she talks… the way she smells…

LD begins to draw his sword.

LD: Should just get rid of her… she will turn on us first chance she gets…

Mortis cuts off LD using her vampire speed to quickly over throw him and render him to the floor both hands behind his back, with her stiletto heel braced to the back of LD’s head, before he is able to draw his sword.

Mortis: Don’t temp me you spineless coward of a human… I could kill you right now and leave you all to your fate… all it would take is myself pressing this heel through the back of your skull… and poof… one action sets everyone down a brand new path…

Everyone else begins to make a attack on Mortis. Mortis then releases LD’s arms and removes her heel. And everyone backs down there attack.

Mortis: Unfortunately… the fate of everyone else is the same as my own… in this case…

Ivory: This might not be a selfless act… but we need her…

Athame’: You said yourself we need someone of pure evil blood to kill a saint if we can’t use fire…

Nightmare: …And I doubt this saint will just stay still so we can set him a blaze… nor less through him in a pit of fire…

Zero: So you said your mission wasn’t a failure… yet you don’t have the sword… so explain…

Brandis: A name…

Nightmare: What?

LD: We found out his name… Saint Christopher…

Zero: What the hell good does that do us?

Athame’: Everything.

Everyone sits confused as Athame’ sits down at Nightmare’s data entry files that are linked into the Hidden cities central computer.

Athame’: This guy had access to Hidden-Atlantis technology…and knew magic… so it must mean he was a student or citizen of the city at some point…

Nightmare: …and if he was he would be registered in the central computer…

Athame’ looks through file names of people starting with the name Christopher in the hidden city as everyone crowds around her- Mortis looks around the ship curiously and is watched every other moment by Zero who stands behind the others with his arms crossed. LD also pays attention to mortis as well and both pass unpleasant looks to each other.

Athame’: Nothing…

Nightmare: Let me try… I’ll cross reference the name Christopher with academy records and data entry into weapons and technology… both public and classified…

Zero: We don’t have time for this…

Ivory: He’s right…

Athame’: Let’s head back to the city. We may be able to pin point where that other blip on the map was… if anything that could possibly be where the saint is heading…

LD: Then let’s get back to the map.

Nightmare: I’ll up load the processor to the master computer at my lab, we should have something on this guy by the time we get there.


Nightmare in puts his data and jumps into the pilot chair where Zero sits in the co-pilot chair. Mortis stands and looks outside the window of the Death Bat. Ivory heads away to another room and enters a meditative trance. LD heads into a corner to sharpen his sword keeping an eye out for Mortis. Athame’ sits at the computer navigating the ship as Brandis stands behind her.

Brandis: Are you ok?

Athame’ ignores Brandis as if she is upset with him.

Brandis: What’s the matter?

Athame’: Nothing of you to worry about…

Mortis comes up behind Brandis and begins to rub on his skin from behind.

Mortis: Hi lover… long time no see… or taste should I say…

Brandis says nothing but looks at Mortis out of the corners of his eyes.

Mortis: You know if you ever want to give it another go like last time… I’m very game…

Brandis: No thanks… it was a one time deal…

Mortis: Shoot your self handsome… but the offer is on the table…

Mortis then walks away and sits back into a near by chair and begins sharpening her nails with a gothic filer.

Athame’ gets up in discuss and leaves the room.

Athame’: LD take over for me… some of us need a break…

Brandis grows a discontent look on his face.

Meanwhile Saint Christopher has docked his ship on to land and he and his stone warriors march into the gates of a large stoned aged temple covered in moss, vines and dirt from the ground surrounded by 4 towers similar but smaller bridged together with large cauldrons of fire lit on top of each tower. The main and largest tower in the center holds a broken Celtic cross on the top point. Christopher ascends the stairs into the very top of the temple into a large round room with broken stained glass windows facing north, south, east and west. Three alters lie in between the glass windows. One alter holds the feather, another hold the spear of destiny and Christopher walks to an empty alter and places the ancient sword on it. He then walks back to the center and kneels to an opening in the center of the ceiling.

Christopher: It is done… soon my lord… your will be fulfilled… and the world will be saved.

Mean while everyone arrives and enters the Hidden City. But run into problems upon entering the gates.

Stopping Ana Mortis.

Guard: I’m sorry Sir, but this one isn’t allowed into the city.

Nightmare: She’s with us, under care…

Guard: I’m sorry sir I can not allow it.

Zero: What if we detain her some how?

Mortis: I’m not coming in hand cuffs or anything… I’ll stay here on the ship…

LD: Not a bad idea…

Nightmare: Alright…

Zero: Nightmare, you can’t leave her in the ship alone…

LD: He’s right… she could sabotage it or something…

Brandis: Wait… hold on… Ivory you mind staying with Mistress Mortis?

Ivory looks at Mortis.

Ivory: Yes… should be no problem…

Brandis: There that settles that.

Nightmare: I will leave the back up generator on… for you all to help yourselves to food or anything…

LD: That’s smart…leaving two demons on a ship with great fire power…

Zero: Just forget it man…

Ivory and Mortis enter the ship and the door closes. Athame’ has ventured a head and taken a flying taxi leaving the others behind.

Brandis: She hates me…

Nightmare: Nah… she’s just upset, she’ll be ok. Come on lets get back to the lab.

LD, Nightmare, Brandis and Zero jumps into there own flying cab and head back to the lab. Athame’ arrives to the headmaster’s chamber. As she enters she sees the Headmaster in a trance floating in mid air surrounded by small orbs of light.

He awakens and sets down to the floor.

Calm.

Headmaster: Athame’, you have returned.

Athame’ bows.

Athame’: Yes Master.

Headmaster: I sense something is wrong child… come sit…

Athame’ ventures over and kneels in front of the Headmaster.

Headmaster: You are very discontent… Speak…

Athame’: We were too late to get the sword master… we failed…

Headmaster: You have not failed young one… the world still exists… it is only a matter of time true. But you can still stop it…

Becoming more scared.

Athame’: I don’t know if I can… I’m not strong enough…

Headmaster: Shh… you have the strength… always have. Power that you are not even aware of. You just need a reason to use it… and you have it… its all around you my child.

Saying as he places his hand on Athame’s shoulder.

Back at the lab Nightmare and the others check the data Nightmare fed to the computer from the ship on Christopher.

Zero: Anything?

Nightmare: No… nothing at all… there are dozens of Christopher’s in the city. All were students at the academy but none of them have check out any weapons of any kind… nor have they left the city…

LD: How do you know?

Nightmare: When you leave the city, which hardly anyone has done, the gate take a heated signature of the person’s body temperature mapping it down to the last DNA strand and feeds it back to the central computer… unless he or someone erased it that’s the only way. But that’s impossible because only I have authorized access into the system.

Zero: Couldn’t he like teleport out or something with out using the gate?

Nightmare: Possible… but unlikely… so many things the person would have to get around to teleport through the city out of the dome… have to be a seventh level magic user, manipulate the power grid to the city…

LD: Yea yea yea we get it impossible…

Brandis: Looks like we are back to square one…

Zero: What about the other point on the map...

Nightmare: Well where ever that point is…Saint Christopher is definitely there… all the energy signatures are in one spot.

LD: The headmaster said the energies will build power to create a large energy surge… any way to determine how long we may have…

Nightmare types in a few strokes and the computer shows the status of the energy building.

Zero: Tell me your computer is just running through phone numbers…

Nightmare: No my friend. If these numbers continue to rise they will enter to the point where radiation, mystic, heat, and energy levels will be off the chart causing the planet to exceed its temperature and melt…

Zero: ENGLISH JACK!

Nightmare: If we don’t separate the artifacts in 36 hours we’re doomed.

Zero: Oh… ok… I understood that…

LD: Should inform the city… tell people…

Athame’ enters.

Athame’: You can’t… if you do it would create panic…its best no one knows until we succeed.

Zero: But what if we don’t succeed…

LD: We must…

Meanwhile Christopher stands in the center of the round room looking around him as the energies build up. Two hours later back at the hidden city Brandis sits with his mother and watches her in her coma.

Brandis: I don’t know what to do mom… I’m kind of lost… part of me wants to go down fighting and we both end and your suffering ends with it… like the way you taught me… but if that happens the rest of the world goes with it not just us. And I know that’s not what you would want. Not what you taught me… you use to tell me we Drake’s have always been protectors of pure good, light and life. And we are to lay our lives down to protect especially if it’s for something we love… or someone… I’m just confused mom… need your guidance…

Brandis then puts his head down into his hands to think.

Athame’ sits at a distance in another room listening and looking at Brandis on camera talk to his mother. Nightmare then comes in with a clipboard and startles Athame’.

Nightmare: Hey…

Athame’: Hi.

Nightmare then sits next to a computer not far from the camera monitors and data entry readers of all the patients in the hospital including Brandis’ mom’s chamber.

Nightmare: Didn’t know you were here. Are you ok?

Athame’: I’m uh… I’m alright. How longs he been in there?

Nightmare walks around writing down data on a clip board.

Nightmare: Over two hours I think.

With jealousy in her voice.

Athame’: I see. Figured he’d be spending his last moments with that vampire Mistress or something…

Nightmare: Really?

Athame’: ….

Nightmare sits next to Athame’.

Nightmare: You know the two of them aren’t what you think nor did they do what you think… far as I know.

Athame’: What do you mean?

Nightmare: He made a harsh deal, one that save my life, Zero’s life… and yours.

Athame’: Really?

Nightmare: Yep… almost cost him his life… that’s what he did with Mortis. Protected us... saved us… even though it almost killed him. He’s a very stand up guy Athame’. Noble…

Nightmare begins to stand up to leave the room.

Nightmare: You know if you ask me… we are lucky to have him as a friend.

Nightmare leaves and the door slides close behind him.

Athame’ sits for a moment then walks into the chamber to Brandis.

Nervously.

Athame’: Hi.

Brandis removes his hands from his face and continues to stare at his mother.

Brandis: Oh hey… how are you?

Athame’: I’m feeling a little better… How about you?

Brandis just nods left to right.

Athame’: You seem kind of distraught…

Brandis sits and says nothing still but grows a sad look on his face.

Athame’: How about… you want to go for a walk somewhere?

Brandis: Its ok… No offense… would rather just sit here with my mom… but thank you.

Athame’ kneels down next to Brandis and looks directly at him.

Athame’: Would your mom really want you spending your last moments here?

Brandis: No…she wouldn’t…

The two then leave and head to the outside city, which glooms at night with lights. The two walk close down the streets of the hidden city. Flyer cars, ships, hover vehicles pass through the sky while at the same does flying people on brooms, jet packs, and various enchanted creatures pass by.

Meanwhile Nightmare passes out while working in his lab, Zero spends time with his people who made it to the city, and LD meditates and practices his sword moves in a training simulator.

Brandis and Athame’ continue to walk making each other smile and laugh. Momentarily taking away any bad thoughts that were on there mind, and soon find themselves in front of nice view of the city on a bridge.

Brandis: Wow… I never have seen anything like this…

Athame’: Yes… it’s beautiful isn’t it?

Brandis: Yea…but how do you see it… with your eyes I mean?

Athame’: I see it in beautiful neon yellow, green and white lights in various organic auras… ranging from blue to red even violet.

Brandis: Whoa… must be unreal…

Athame’: It is… but honestly it gets old…

Brandis: What do you mean?

Athame’ looks down and away from the city.

Athame’: All my life I have seen auras… never anything in it nature color and light… just the aura colors I see every day… every night. These eyes are a gift from the pure line of my people… but feel like a curse. It’s just; sometime I wish I could see what everyone else sees… just once…

The two begin to draw closer.

Brandis: There no way for you to see that way?

Athame’: No… but I have heard that… in times of pure love an Atlantian loses their aura sight… and for the whole moment they can see naturally like everyone else.

Brandis: Then how do you know if you’re in a time of pure love?

The two grow closer as they look at each other in their eyes connect.

Athame’: I don’t know you just….

Athame’ is cut off and mumbles to silence as she and Brandis kiss gently for the first time. The two pull each other closer. Ecstatic from the passion the two begin to levitate into the air surrounded by only air and mystic clouds of energy and above the flying elements of the city. And for moments Athame’ is able to see like she had never seen before; Various colors and all its forms and details.

The next day Brandis and Athame’ leave Athame’s apartment and head to Nightmare’s Lab. Two hours later every one meets back at the Death Bat and board with Ivory and Mortis waiting and begin there voyage to the Temple of Existence with only ten hours left to stop destruction, and depart.

Nightmare and Zero Pilot and Co pilot the craft. Athame’s Aura sight has returned and she is navigating the ship toward the temple while at the same time looking at Brandis every other moment as he meditates along side LD. Ivory has left the ship to venture to the water to get to the temple faster. Mortis sits smoking a cigarette looking outside the window of the Death Bat.

Zero: How far we got ‘til we get there?

Nightmare: ‘Bout one hour…

Turns to Mortis.

Nightmare: Excuse me mistress can you please put that out?

Mortis: Sure… since you asked so nicely.

Mortis puts out the cigarette on the wall next to her, scorching lightly the ships wall. Nightmare responds with an annoyed look on his face.

Mortis: You never said where to put it out at…

Soon everyone arrives miles away from the Temple entrance only to find a most shocking site they did not expect.

Zero: Holy shit…

LD: You said it…

Nightmare: The army has gotten bigger…

Ivory: He’s raised more of the dead…

The energy around the temple has been present so long spreading through the world it has awaken and drawn to it various long dead soldiers and warriors from all ages of the past. Saint Christopher doesn’t have just the stone Chang Dynasty army under his control, but ever corpse and carcass from every war from the ancient times until now surrounding the temple on all sides.
