Zoey bit her lip as she stood next to Rythian in the large open field. On the opposite side stood Sips, Sjin, and Lalna. She reached for Rythian’s hand.
"Do we have to do this?" She asked softly, sadness in her voice.
"After everything we’ve been through…. yes, we do." He replied, squeezing her hand.
"I’m scared." She whispered. "Really scared."
"Don’t worry, Zoey. I’ll protect you." He assured her. He turned his head to the two iron golems. "Johnny Iron. Red Five. Go in first."
The golems began their assault on the scientists.
"Zoey’s there, with him. Thought she wasn’t with him anymore. That’s what you said, Duncan." Sjin said to Lalna.
"Well, she had left. I didn’t know she went back to him. She must’ve found out about the nuke." Lalna replied. "Golems are heading in."
"Hey, Sjin. I thought we were coming out here to survey land… why are we standing across from that weird guy who helped us?" Sips asked, looking rather confused.
"Sips, we’re defending the factory. That weird guy wants to destroy it." Sjin reassured the Sips Co executive.
"Oh, okay then. Let’s kill ‘em." Sips replied.
Rythian took to the skies, flying toward the trio on the opposite side. He aimed his catalytic lens toward the men. Zoey looked up, and gasped.
"LALNA MOVE!" She yelled. Rythian fired. Lalna saw and jumped away, leaving Sips and Sjin to fall into the crater the mage created.
"Sjin look at all this dirt! This is fantastic. THANKS RYTHIAN!" Sips yelled up to the mage.
"Duncan! What the hell was that?!" Sjin asked the scientist who looked up at the mage to study the item in his hands.
"Catalytic Lens, think of it like a super powered mining laser." Lalna replied to the other, as he brushed himself off. He flew up to the sky. "Rythian!"
"What do you want, Duncan?" He asked, glaring toward the blonde.
"You should stop this. You cannot win, you’re just going to endanger Zoey." Lalna sighed. "You don’t want that, do you?"
"You still don’t understand, do you Duncan? You still don’t get it." Rythian laughed, landing on the ground. He equipped his red katar, and ran toward the closest of the three, Sips.
"JESUS! What are you doing?" Sips managed to dodge Rythian’s attacks. "Sjin, can you believe this guy? … Sjin? SJIN?!"
"No hard feelings, Sips. Just… business." Rythian smiled, finally catching the other in a moment of weakness. His katar made a clean cut.
Sips_ has been slain by Rythian.
"SIPS?!" Sjin looked over at his slain friend.
"You’re turn, Sjin." Rythian turned toward Sjin, walking slowly toward him. Sjin raised his mining laser, changing the mode from low focus to explosive. He took aim toward Rythian, but then turned the gun toward Zoey. She gasped.
"You forgot about your woman, Rythian." Sjin said, an evil smile growing across his face. Lalna’s eyes widened and he started to move toward Zoey. The trigger was pulled, Zoey screamed.
LividCoffee was shot by Sjin.
"What?!" Sjin couldn’t believe his eyes. Lalna had thrown himself in front of the laser to save Zoey. She ran to his fallen form, tears forming in her eyes.
"Why did you do that? It was so stupid. I’m so sorry, Lalna. So sorry." She held him close.
Rythian couldn’t take his eyes away from the scene. Seeing Zoey crying for one of their enemies bothered him, but at the same time… he realized that maybe Duncan really had changed. He turned his attention to Sjin, who was also in disbelief. The mage walked toward the other.
"Heh heh, Rythian. Yeaaah. Sorry about… that. You know, just having a bit of fun. No reason to fight, so much blood has already been shed." Sjin began to back up, laughing nervously.
"You’re right, Sjin. So much blood, but not yours." Rythian ran forward, slicing with his katar. Sjin managed to dodge while trying to retreat. He tripped and fell to the ground, scooting away backward from the mage towering over him.
"Please… don’t kill me!" Sjin pleaded. A dark smile crossed the mage’s obscured lips, and his eyes flashed with light. Sjin had never been this scared in his entire life.
"Goodbye Sjin." Rythian said simply. His katar crashing against the man on the ground.
Sjin was slain by Rythian.
Rythian walked toward Zoey, who was still crying for the fallen scientist. He placed a hand on her shoulder. She stood up. Turning to the mage, she wrapped her arms around him, and continued crying into his chest.
"Zoey. He gave his life to protect you, something I promised and failed to do. Let’s give him a proper burial. I misjudged him." He held her close until she was ready to go.
