The Final Confrontation Part 2

Imagine you are staring down at what seems to be the end. The end of the world… the end of life as been stalked about for generations. What would the sight appear to be in your eyes? Would it be your greatest fear? Your darkest moment repeated over and over? Or would it be the fire and brimstone as read in the many faiths in existence of the world? What if that end you see manifesting before you isn’t the end at all? What if it is only the beginning of what is to come? The beginning of something worse… or something better.

Jack Nightmare, Patient Zero, Brand, Athame’, Ivory, LD along with their new ally Ana Mortis stand within the Death bat with a legion of stoned soldiers from the Chang Dynasty, spirits, ghost, corpses and various monsters of the deep. And endless army that seems virtually unstoppable.

Nightmare: This is bad? This is very bad…

Zero: No shit brainiac… don’t have the man power or even the fire power to…

Cutting Zero off.

Brandis: Let’s not jump to conclusion…

LD: He’s right… keep your head on straight. Not gonna get through this with everyone in panic…

Mortis: You should talk human… you stick of fear…

Walking up to the window next to LD everyone is looking through.

Mortis: I can smell it on you…

Ivory: We don’t have time for this… gotta figure out how to get to the base of the tower… time is kinda important here.

Athame’: I can do it…

Zero: What?

Athame’: I can get us there… one piece. We won’t even touch the ground…

Mortis: And how do you plan to get us there little girl? Flying us over?

Brandis: That’s exactly what she’s thinking…

Nightmare: Athame’ you can’t… the strain can be too much pressure on your psyche. Can over load your mind… who knows what else?

Athame’: Jack it’s the only way…

LD: She’s right… we fly over will buy us time…

Athame’: Anyone got any other ideas?

Silence.

Athame’: Good… then lets go.

Everyone steps out side into the chaos surrounding the ancient temple fortress. Standing close to Athame’ everyone preps themselves to be lifted into the air by the strongest winds. Brandis watches her closely as her eyes glow and the winds pick up around everyone.

Athame’: Don’t move… Going to be a bumpy ride…

Everyone begins to hover and soon is arisen into the air simultaneously. As they pass the legion below them surrounds everyone. Looking down and around them to see various phantasms and ghost surrounding them attempting to grab and assault them.

Brandis: Don’t move!!!

The constant moving from everyone begins to take toil on Athame. Only half way to the fortress base everyone is continually attacked by spirits. Athame’s nose begins to bleed and she becomes weaker getting them three fourths of the way. Everyone begins to panic.

LD: We’re going down!!

Athame’ grows weaker and soon the wind loses it pull on everyone.

Zero: Hold on and get ready!!!

Athame’ beings to lose her focus and the wind loses its pull finally sending everyone falling to the surface from a hundred or so feet. Nightmare uses his MDM and transforms to his hulk self landing first. Ivory lands second followed by LD and Zero who land on the shoulders of Nightmare reflecting off. Mortis lands next barely showing any reaction to the impact. Brandis levitates to the ground with Athame’ dizzy and head struck, in his arms. Everyone is soon attacked by the legion. Nightmare attacks with out fear throwing and ripping apart countless enemies. Ivory does the same with her strength, leaping, knocking heads off and punching through the stones soldiers. Zero chaotically blast at anything coming at him not human, while LD backs him up slicing through the enemies with his blade with impressive skill. Mortis sits near by barely lifting a finger, using her vampire speed dodging the misfire of parts surrounding her, covering Brandis and Athame’.

Brandis: You did good…

Athame’: I failed…

Brandis: Far from it…

Mortis is soon attacked by a stoned soldier that cuts her face as she dodged its attack. The wound is seen but then heals quickly.

Mortis: Well… I be damned… been centuries since anything touched me…

Saying with a smirk on her face. Mortis counter attacks with great strength. With an upper cut, Mortis knocks the soldiers head clean off. She then comes to her feet rips the skirt from her hips revealing a spandex vinyl battle suit. Attached to her knee high boots lies two twin, gothic medieval like blades. She pulls both from their casing.

Mortis: Time to get my hands dirty…

She then begins vamp speeding around using quick blows and marital arts combat skills taking out various foes.

Brandis begins to cover Athame’ until she regains her vision from being dizzy. Soon she recovers from her dizziness.

Athame’: We’re running out of time…

Athame’ and Brandis look to the back ground behind the battle to see the fabric of reality ripping apart around them into nothing.

Brandis: Damn it… EVERYONE HEAD FOR THE TOWER NOW!!! DO WHATEVER YOU CAN!!

Everyone looks to see the fabric of reality turning to nothing- complete blackness- and begin to make their way to the center of the fortress. Zero, Ivory and LD fight through the odds and are soon scooped up by Nightmare who charges through the army like an unstoppable juggernaut. Mortis vamp speeds through. Brandis takes Athame’ into his arms and begins head hopping through the army. Soon everyone finds themselves at the bottom with no way into the fortress.

LD: How do we get in?!

Mortis I got my way!!! Meetcha at the top!!

Mortis uses her vampire flying ability to vamp speed into the top window of the temple. Athame’ hops on Brandis’ back and Brandis takes Ivory in his arms and Levitates to the top. Nightmare uses his MDM and phases through the building with LD and Zero hand in hand to get to the top. Finding themselves in a huge ancient and round room with broken glass windows and the 3 artifacts set in a perfect triangle pattern- each artifact glows with power on its own separate alter. Saint Christopher is not around to be seen. LD begins to walk toward the ancient sword.

LD: Grab the artifacts…

Brandis: LD NO!!!

LD is suddenly struck by an unknown force from a distance and pressed against a wall. Saint Christopher then appears from the only door leading out of the room.

Christopher: I’m sorry but I can not have you interfering in the surge of power… it would stop the process.

Everyone begins a scale out attack on Christopher. But his powers make him a one many army. He uses magic, sword techniques, and martial arts to evade attack and counter attacks from everyone rending them to the floor.

Christopher: Why can’t you all realize my logic is undeniable… the word must be reborn to start a new… AHHH!!!

Letting his guard down for the split second gives Mortis a chance to attack him from behind. The attack weakens him briefly releasing LD from the wall. Christopher then turns around and places Mortis in a stasis field preventing her from moving.

In slight pain and not healing.

Christopher: So you found someone of pure evil to end my life… tsk tsk… well she is pretty…

Christopher then ignites a ring of fire in a pit surrounding the room.

Christopher: It’s funny how fire works…can purge even the darkest of creatures of evil from life- and they are made from it… To bad this is your only door to stopping me…

He then throws Mortis toward the fire to kill her. LD jumps and grabs Mortis in mid air saving her from the pit of fire. She still sits in a stasis field and LD draws his sword to attack Christopher. Everyone takes a hint from LD and begins attacking him as well. Nightmare attack using his MDM attacks and is rendered defenseless once his MDM is broken sending the short circuit current through his body. Zero is immediately put into a stasis field. Athame’ and Ivory are pressed on to a wall with powerful telekinesis and wrapped in a powerful wire deep within the wall. LD and Brandis are only left. Both fight as hard as they can, Brandis is pushed back with a force wave of energy from Christopher breaking his right arm and left leg. LD fights hard in sword clash with Christopher. The two move gracefully and fast across the room. With great technique and skill LD renders the weak Christopher with no sword and at the point of his- down on his knees.

LD: I’m sorry my friend… there is always a better way to fixing this world… too bad you can not see it.

LD begins to take one of Mortis’ blade to kill Christopher. Suddenly finding himself with great strain and pain, LD looks down to his chest to find Christopher’s blade within him. Christopher had used LD’s speech moment and used telekinesis to thrust his own blade toward both of them.

Everyone screams in reaction to LD’s death.

Christopher: No… It is I who should be sorry my friend but you lost the faith…

LD falls over and dies from his fatal womb. Readjusting his broken limbs to move a little more Brandis jumps back into action and begins to fight Christopher. Christopher, still wounded, takes only little damage from Brandis’ blows dodging and fighting. One upper cut renders him to the floor leaving Christopher looking up at Brandis.

Putting his broken limbs back in place to permanently heal Brandis picks the wounded Christopher up off the floor by his throat to throw him in the fire pit located behind them.

Slightly gagging.

Christopher: You are an interesting creature… fascinating…

Brandis soon finds himself falling through the floor from a quick sand spell created by Christopher. Christopher floats away from the pit using his telekinesis.

Christopher: It’s too bad that characteristic is not within other creatures in this existence…

Just outside the window the chaos and blackness from the energy surge continues to rip apart existence.

Christopher: In mere moments… it will all be over.

Brandis levitates himself from the quick sanding floor and charges at Christopher only to be pushed back and into the pit of fire. All watching scream in agony as they see another friend perish. Athame’ sheds a tear and looks away. Zero, Ivory and Nightmare grow angry trying to get the will power to get up and attempt to fight again but can not. Mortis looks for a way to get out of the stasis field. The energy begins to build up causing tremors and Christopher stands in the center awaiting the end- praying.

Hope and shock fills the room and in everyone’s face when Brandis walks from the pit of fire unscarred or burned and scorched. With anger glowing in his red eyes and with Christopher distracted, Brandis jams his talons into Christopher back as he stand and begins to turn towards Brandis, weakening him.

Stunned look on his face.

Christopher: Impossible…. No creature can survive…

The two begin to fight more immediately. Christopher becomes slower and weaker because of his new wound. Brandis manages to lay more wounds on Christopher, scratches and gouges. Soon Christopher can barely move or throw a punch at all and falls to the floor bleeding from various wounds that have not healed and will not heal.

Christopher: You… are… special……. Different…… evil…….. yet…… good….. but you’ve…ma.... a fatal…accident…. This…wor… must be… saved…

As the fire pit dies around them, Christopher’s does too, and his power and spells leave with him releasing everyone from their current state.

Slightly confused and surprised from the outcome of the battle with Brandis and Christopher. Everyone stands around and in front of Brand with awkward unpleasantness.

Zero: How on earth?

Nightmare: …you… you killed him…

Very shocked himself.

Brandis: Wha…. What does this mean…

Silence grows.

Mortis: Means there is more to you… a lot more than you know…

Nightmare goes to grab the ancient sword to stop the energy surge and is hit by an unknown electric shock knocking him out.

Zero cocks his gun arm to return fire.

Zero: What the fuck?

Zero is hit with another shock seconds after, magnetizing his arm, pinning him magnetically to the wall.

Everyone looks toward the direction of the energy shock to reveal a familiar face.

Athame’: It can’t be…

Stepping from the shadows.

Headmaster: My friends you have come far… indeed I must say…
