Chapter 18

Myke, with a group of soldiers, walked through the ground of Klensburg. He had already checked his blast gun, laser knife and range rifle before carrying out this mission. His skill of the blast gun was well-known in East. Almost every soldier looked up to him like an idol, excited until they piss themselves the moment they knew he was on a mission with them. Myke was oblivious to this, though. His accuracy with the range rifle was legendary, scoring hits on heads of running monsters. Range rifles were only used for specially trained soldiers, and Myke was one, since his speed of adapting was exceedingly quick.
He was like a person born to be perfect. He was also intelligent, to a degree. He didn't have any taste for science, but when tactic and strategy came, he was second only to Henry.
Henry was the best friend he could ever have. Myke was a more outgoing person that Henry was. They were quite the opposites. Henry was calm, but had anger management issues. Myke was active; hyperactive more like. But any problems should arise, together they would solve it.
There was a sound, something crushing something, then a roar. Myke picked it up first and looked towards the direction of the noise. He commanded his squad to move there, but they wouldn't listen, for some reason.
He was too focused to see the sun rising. Only now did he notice. In every mind of the residents of East, no sun should ever come up in the Darkness region. Perhaps evolution was taking place at a fast pace.
He looked at an erect ledge and took out his whip. The whip was a leather grip with flexible nylon strings tied up together. He struck and the whip lashed out and wrapped itself around the ledge. He pulled and swung, leading him up to a different building beside the one with the ledge.
In his eyes, he saw something move nimbly, but couldn't specify what that was, thanks to the buildings preventing the sun from shedding light on that thing.
Even with his range rifle, he looked through the scope attached and still he couldn't identify. His range rifle was built like the other range rifles. In the armoury where he always hung out there, the range rifles were almost never touched. Only highly ranked soldiers got to use them. It had a scope that zoomed in a hundred metres away. The butt stock, for some reason, should be put over the shoulder. It didn't make sense to Myke, but he did it anyway. Like normal, the range rifle was made out of alloys that could reduce the recoil of the weapon.
He shook his head like that thing he saw was an imagination. He never liked seeing something that didn't exist. Some would, he knew.
He turned back and saw his men getting eaten by monsters of corruption. He widened his eyes in shock, but then realised he would be better off without them. Monsters of corruption were the weakest type of all and he would be ****ed if he would trust those men to cover him while he was doing something.
He shook his head once more, but in disbelief this time, and tilted his head towards the scope. He held his breath and shot. One of them died, taking a chunk of flesh along with it. He did it again, with another down, its one eye gone.
He didn't want to waste his bullets anymore. He took his laser knife out. It was just like a simple knife in the kitchen, just with lasers as replacement of the steel blade. He threw it simply and it caught the last monster in the head. He jumped down the building and saw both blue and red blood flowing towards him. He put his right gloved hand over his face in disappointment as he walked over to his dead comrades.
He looked one of them in the still eye. He shrugged his own shoulders, then move to ransack the soldiers' items they carried.
A few clips for the range rifle, another laser knife and a laser pistol with a few clips as well.
Using the same way to climb up, he used it again, but on a higher building, perhaps even the tallest building in the town. The view was amazing from here, with the sun shining down at the buildings, the wind blowing from the left. He saw something move, yet again, but it was a larger activity from afar. He used his range rifle to peek further. It was another town, probably Fisher Town, according to Henry. There was a big lake nearby for fishing.
A small bright purple light from that area shocked him. He also saw a dark silhouette in the purple light, flying along with another figure without anything to support it.
He staggered backwards as he caught a glimpse of a horde of monsters. It could be monsters of darkness or death, he wasn't sure. But he was sure that he needed to report this back to Henry before anything bad happened.
He glanced through the town for something else to hold onto. He found a platform and jumped. In the air, he swung his whip like he smacked a volleyball with his hand and the nylon strings wrapped around that platform. It couldn't hold out for long, though. It fell through when Myke pulled the whip. From a long distance, he fell down some 10 metres and broke his right foot.
He didn't shout, but grimaced because he thought monsters could trace sound from a mile away.
There was a growl of hunger and violence from his left. Cold sweat drooled down his cheeks as he breathed heavily. No, it couldn't be. There weren't any monsters in Klensburg, no way. He didn't look. He took out his range rifle, equipped it and put the stock over his right shoulder as he sat on the ground.
He turned his head to the left by a few degrees and stretched his pupils to the left as far as he could without getting dizzy. He saw a grey beast, thick with fur and muscles. He had never seen anything like that before.
Dust flew as the monster charged at him.

Myke was a more outgoing person that Henry was.


This is the mistake. Instead of than, I put that. Biggest mistake in this story. I know there's more, but this one is worse.

Chapter 19

Rose was on her axe, flying through the exit of Fisher Village. Kogh was beside her, constantly pushing against his own back with force. There was a horde of monsters of darkness after them. For some reason, the sun had risen although none of the monsters roared. Maybe another monster of darkness roared far away. For that, she was glad and also annoyed about it. She was glad for the extra melting element in the axe, but she had trouble steering the axe, since she couldn't stand on the purple blade. She had met Kogh when she had stopped crying about her journal. She had accepted her fate and went on. But when she had seen Kogh, it made her realise that the sacrifice of her journal for Kogh was more than enough. She had cried more, with joy instead. Kogh suddenly hugged her and she felt happier after that, even with the monsters chasing her.
The dark ground, shown elaborate by the sun, was rocky with pebbles and had twisted cracks.
She looked at her goat foot. It looked sickening, but it was enough for running, and easily, at Rose's bewilderment. It had been stuck on her for a day. Maybe she should go back to East and-
NO! She hated her father, even if she ran away from home. There was enough food for her (The monsters of the Darkness region) and fresh water was in Klensburg. She would hate herself if she went back to East for help. Feeling helpless wasn't Rose's favourite feeling and she was already an exile.
Her gloved hand, by mistake, moved sideways and the axe rotated sideways. Her feet slipped off the axe and fell.
But a second later, she was in Kogh's arms. She looked up at Kogh's face, with her legs on his right hand and her head on his left hand. He was smiling, for unknown reasons. She appreciated that and replied with the same facial expression. Until they hit the same bee creature that had killed Kogh before.
By that time, Rose had had her axe in her hand already. She positioned her axe at her feet and started flying. She pulled Kogh by the hand and moved away from the creature. Kogh sent an invisible blade through the creature. The black armour it had was pierced through. Blue blood flowed outwards from the hole he made and it fell, with a heart that stopped beating.
She was extremely confused. Before, Kogh wasn't strong enough to kill any of those things. Somehow, his assumed death had made him stronger.
He snickered as he saw it fell. Automatically, they started flying without each other's help again. The horde was onto them, until they saw a whole host of monsters of corruption spreading from another town. Two places she had visited, one week in Klensburg and a few hours in Fisher Village. She had looked out for more villages and towns to scavenge for more food, but she hadn't seen any, even when it was the first time she had seen the sun. But now, she saw one, thanks to the sun.
From the air, she and Kogh saw a war happening in front of their eyes. A war between monsters of darkness and monsters of corruption. The monsters of corruption consisted of bee creatures, gigantic scorpions, vast wolf-like creatures and more that she couldn't identify. The other had horned, four-legged creatures, dinosaur-like creatures, creatures with aerodynamic wings and more.
When they met and clashed, it was easy to see an effortless win for the monsters of darkness. The sun was their strength support. Maybe the horde would thank the monster that summoned the sun.
The war was over in a few minutes, with monsters of darkness eating every prey alive, wrenching meat from left to right and monsters competing for food, even though there were a few thousands more. They were first lunging and striking, but now, they were resting and had full stomachs. Instead of going back to Fisher Village, they stayed in the middle of the Darkness region, never wanting to move at all. They were like snakes, resting after eating.
Her eyes were wide open, her mouth was hanging low but fortunately, her gloved hand was still moving side to side, keeping her and the axe still.
She had a thought about the new town. Since most of the monsters of corruption were dead, she decided to go to the town she discovered to see what was going on, assuming there was less danger. She went off but jerked to a halt after a while. She turned and beckoned Kogh to come along, with a half grin. He followed without question, to adventure and misadventure.

Chapter 20

The beast backed up and launched itself forward with its legs. It lunged towards a man with a stick-like weapon with a trigger. He pulled it and the bullet pushed past the beast's right front leg. It grimaced as its body started to crumple from the pain. It missed the man and crashed into the ground beside him, sending dust flying everywhere. In fact, the dust messed up its radar. It couldn't click its tongue because of it. The taste of dust was horrifying.
Blindly, it galloped past the disturbance into the open. It moved its tongue, creating that click sound again. The stick-like weapon was pointed at its head. Instinctively, it moved its head sideways and it heard the loud crackling noise that came the second time. The bullet missed. With its injured right leg, it couldn't move it one bit. It moved its left front leg instead and it pushed itself forward. It rammed into the man and landed on top of him. He shouted, but it couldn't understand what he meant.
It felt heat receding from it. The sun was almost setting. It didn't know why, but it had a feeling of fleeing, even when it could eat the man. Its stomach could last for an eternity so it didn't really need to eat it. But if it leaves the man alive, he might come back to kill it. It didn't care. It was either die here, with its strength lost or retaliate the next time they met with the risen sun.
It turned the other way and ran. It immediately stopped in its tracks, trying to realise something. It slid on the terrain and saw that its right leg was healed tremendously.
It would smile if it would know how to. It continued running from that spot and tested its right leg once more. The air hit against the beast as it ran, its grey fur slanting towards the direction of the air. The beast twisted and turned as buildings blocked its path. Eventually, it escaped Klensburg. It had nowhere to go from here. But it was clear that it couldn't go back to Klensburg.
It picked up movement from far away, but only a little. Something was on the ground, dormant and still. With its super-sharp ears, it picked up a soft sigh from that direction too. It was left to go there, since it had no other options.
It trekked slowly on the uneven, cracked ground as dusk settled in. It felt its extra strength disappear gradually and its size decreased dramatically. Its senses of touch, hearing and detecting (with the radar) weren't gone, fortunately. Only the wind was blowing at it. Nothing was coming here.
There was a gunshot it heard. It came from Klensburg and it was off the ground. Perhaps somewhere slightly higher than normal.
There was another and a small item pierced through its back. The bullet penetrated through its spine. The beast couldn't feel anything now. It was hard to move and harder to run. It fell to the ground, losing blood on the way.
It moaned every few seconds, withstanding the pain as hard as it could. It breathed with difficulty as blood flowed from its back. It wanted to roar, but it couldn't. Its throat was sore from the roar when the rock had smashed its back. Its head tilted back upright, then another gunshot was heard and this time, the bullet smashed its head inwards.
It fell to the ground, lifeless and regretted not ravaging, but sparing that person's insides before.

Chapter 21

Henry woke up and heard water dripping down to a puddle of water. In front of him, he saw a concrete wall and realised it was the ceiling. He rose from the bed too fast and felt a horrible ache in his back. The bed was almost as hard as the floor. He was in a cell. He could tell by the iron bars that blocked his way to freedom. He got up and walked towards the iron bars, looking across from his cell.
He saw two guards clad in bulletproof vests and military trousers with stripes of green as camouflage. They sat on plain plastic chairs with arms and a table set them apart. They were having toast and some coffee while laughing off to some jokes he wouldn't bother listening to.
One guard suddenly stopped laughing. His eyes met Henry and his mouth closed immediately. He pushed the chair behind with his legs and walked towards Henry. He looked Henry in the eyes.
He fumbled with his pockets as he continuously eyed him and brought forth a key. He opened the cell door, but Henry didn't do anything. Instead, the guard sent a fist at Henry's face. Henry's eyes widened and moved away from the fist as quick as any fistfighters could. He grabbed the guard's arm with both his hands and brought it down on his knee. It made a cracking sound as the arm twisted inward. The guard shouted in regret and pain as he fell, tears forming in his eyes.
The other guard went up against Henry, sending a kick to Henry's belly. Henry moved aside, but the guard anticipated it and sent a hook punch to his right cheekbone and it became numb from pain. Henry was sent to the floor from the punch. He took a last glimpse of the guard as he sent a straight punch at Henry's nose and knocked him out.
Iced water was splashed on his face. His mind went into alert mode immediately and scanned the place he was in.
He was bound to a wooden chair with straps wrapping his wrists so tightly that he couldn't feel his hands. There was a man in a T-shirt and a pair of blue jeans. Henry couldn't see the man's face but he was sure that the man held a bucket with remains of ice cubes. The room was small to be qualified as claustrophobic. The room was completely white, save for the light bulb hanging above Henry and the man. His heart was racing as he was startled.
The man started with a question regarding the monsters of death and their whereabouts. Henry didn't answer. The interrogator asked another question, about how Henry released the monsters of death. Henry didn't answer, either.
The man threw the bucket down and it slammed onto the floor with an ear-piercing clanging sound. He cursed at Henry and slapped his face with the back of his right hand.
Henry fell along with the chair and the man gripped Henry's collar with both his hands and punched his face. But still, he wouldn't reply. He didn't know the answers, but he knew it would be of no use even with excuses that were legit. In the end, excuses were useless to Henry. The monster of corruption had killed his family and excuses still wouldn't help him solve that.
Henry felt the straps getting looser every time he got punched. He took this chance and ripped the straps out. They flew away from the chair and landed on the floor like a dead fish. He frowned and swung his arm at the man's face. His fist hit the man's face and blood was spewed from his mouth.
He turned the man behind and elbowed the back of his head. He fell to the floor, unconscious almost immediately.
He searched his pockets and found a piece of paper. He unfolded it and read the message inside his head.
Remember this, you good-for-nothing b*****d. Your mayor wants your a** back in the cells. Mayor commanded you to kill him. You know who.
His eyes lowered slightly, like he was suddenly gloomy. But instead, he was taking his time processing this in his brains. Only now did he notice his clothes. He wore black-and-white striped clothings like everyone in jail did. He had two pockets in his pants. He folded the note and inserted it into one of his pockets.
East wanted him dead, fast. That, he realised. But why?
The door in front of him was white as well, except for the doorknob which was grey as steel. He fumbled the pockets of the man again and found a key the colour of steel as well. He hurriedly walked to the knob and unlocked it.
He turned the knob and pushed the door open, peeking out.
No one was there at that time. Of course, they never patrolled through the hallway of the interrogation rooms. He had never been here before, so it was hard for him to figure out where he was. He held the key like a knife. Besides his fists, he only had a key to stab. He stepped out into a fork and took the left side. He ran in the hallway and luckily, it wasn't curved. He hated dizziness. Of course, everyone hated it, but he hated it with a passion.
The hallway connected to a lot of cells here. The cells faced each other parallelly. He was barefooted, so not much noise was made. At the end of the hallway, he saw a sign above the door.
Test Chamber, it said. He opened the door. That was an action he wanted to reverse.
That door led into a gigantic room, filled with giant tubes and in them were monsters of corruption, darkness and death, all drowned in some kind of liquid. Smaller tubes were stuck into them, transferring blood out. The monsters looked dead, but they weren't. Some of them jerked and vibrated. In the middle of it all laid a big tube of blue that stood out from the rest of the experiments. It was a big container of blue blood. Why were they collecting blood? Most of all, why capture the monsters?
So many questions rang in his head as he resisted puking. It would reveal him if he did that.
He came to his senses in a few ten seconds. He was out in the open, but fortunately, no one noticed him one bit. He went to nearest tube and laid his back on it, crouching as he did so.
He looked up and saw speakers hanging from steel bars that supported the frame of this room. The size of the room was approximately two times bigger than a warehouse. To his shock, all speakers boomed throughout the room. It was a familiar voice. A familiar voice that said it was time to take a rest before moving on to the next phase. Phase? He stayed to hear more, but nothing came out afterward.
East wasn't the city he knew, the city whom Rose's father promised to evolve. Because of the monsters here, he felt pity for the Darkness region. East, or rather, the government of East was twisted and sick, torturing the monsters for.. Something.
He decided to see more. Since the scientists were taking a rest, he moved towards the tube full of blue blood quickly. He saw wires at the bottom of the tube and smaller tubes connected to the giant tube, moving blood. He finally saw a computer that controlled all this. He saw buttons that didn't make sense. He had a computer of his own, but the design of this one was unique. He didn't touch it, for God-knows-what might happen if he pressed the wrong key. He turned and saw a hand. A human hand. Are they keeping humans too?
He ran over there and slid as he stopped. It was a boy, roughly fifteen to sixteen. A tube contained him inside. Beside it, there were more clones. Each row had different kinds of people. Abducted people. Henry would have to pay Rose's father a visit.
What were they doing here all this time without Henry knowing?
He shook his head and searched for an exit. Eventually, he found one and headed in that direction. When he was almost there, a soldier appeared from a hiding spot and pointed a pistol at his forehead. He was in a bulletproof vest, yet again, and black military pants. He wore leather boots with laces and a helmet, showing his bare face. He tilted his head backwards and smiled.

Chapter 22

Myke smiled with his range rifle on the concrete floor. He was leaning on it since his foot was bloody and broken. He had landed on the tallest building in Klensburg twice with just using his whip. This time, platforms to grab onto weren't damaged. He felt lucky.
The beast that attacked him laid still for as long as he was staring at the body. From far away, he could see a slightly viscous liquid flowing from the beast. When he turned away, he wouldn't know, though he was confident it was dead. He looked at the sky and saw that it was dark already. Stars were visible this time. Myke hadn't the chance to see stars in East. Ever.
Myke always went to Henry at the balcony of his office every night, excluding duties that required almost the whole night. They had sat on chairs and had drunk bottles of beer. Henry didn't take too many, but Myke was overloaded with alcohol that Henry had to move him back to his room.
He grinned at the memory. He finally found another platform to hold onto and jumped off the ledge. He took out his whip and lashed out, the nylon strings wrapping around the platform. He swung like a monkey swinging vine to vine, except that Myke was swinging with just one whip.
He landed on the ground and headed towards the direction of East. It was a maze of buildings, but he made it through and returned home.
He was looking at the front gate of East. It was grand and made beautifully, with shining titanium as its material and the way it was curved was professionally done. The titanium bars were in a snake pattern from top to bottom and left to right. Of course, no person would get through unless they climbed the thing, if they could. The gate stood a few hundred feet tall. Definitely a lot of effort and money were into this gate.
The walls were made with effort and money similar to the gate. They were also made of titanium. East was apparently famous for its mass amount of metals.
Myke looked for a button and pressed it. He waited for a few seconds before the gate slowly opened. Even with the massive gate swung open, it felt majestic every time Myke entered the city. He saw ten guards moving with blast guns towards him. He heard clicks from the guns and without warning, was branded an enemy. He placed one foot back. The ten men followed with one step in front. What was the meaning of this?
Myke put his hands up in the air slowly, meaning no harm, although he could kill all of them if he wanted to. He was just caught by surprise. Far into the city, he saw more men with blast guns catching up. The city of revolution was packed with moving vehicles. Buildings were lit in the night sky. Sun hadn't come up yet. He was kind of glad for that.
He shifted his legs to the left, nearing a rock of the Darkness region. The soldiers followed him. Immediately, Myke broke off in a sprint towards the rock, taking cover. The soldiers started to fire, energy bullets moving past him. He slid into the cover and hid there. More shots were fired and the rock was getting destroyed by the second. He had his range rifle and blast gun. His whip wouldn't count as a weapon unless he was in a close quarters combat.
He prepared his blast gun, flicking the safety switch off. He took a deep breath and exhaled deeply. He inhaled once more and he went out of cover.
Instinctively, he brought his blast gun out and shot a man to death with it. The body was filled with red liquid and holes before he went back to cover. The rock was about Myke's size now. He was outnumbered about 20 to 1. He shook his head in madness, when he saw a wave of monsters of darkness far off on the horizon. His eyes widened and turned his head towards the rock. He shouted a warning about the wave but no one believed. He even heard someone laughing in the distance. It was both an advantage and disadvantage. But first, how didn't Myke see the wave coming? The sun wasn't even there to help them, knowing that information was true by the battle between that monster of darkness and him. Well, no time to think about the things that would disbenefit them.
Once, he looked over the entire town of Klensburg, and even the outskirts of the town. But no waves of monsters of darkness were visible. And now, they were.
Myke shouted the same warning again. But no one cared to believe him. This town is in deep s***, he thought. Though they were weak without the sun, it could come up anytime to strengthen them. What happened to the guards? Did they not worship him anymore, even though he was uncomfortable with it?
He sighed. So, he was just going to sit and die there, then? He didn't want that. He wanted to die either legendarily in battle, or when he retired from duty and got married. Hopefully with someone beautiful.
He sat there with the rock shrinking from the energy bullets.

Pretty good. Look forward to reading more of them. If you had no grammar mistakes and it had polishing here and there, this could make a pretty neat novel.

Now, it isn't a neat novel, is it? Just joking. Of course it's not.

I really wish to improve myself on every level. If there is anything big or small, present it. And thanks for commenting.

Chapter 23

Kogh and Rose were nearing the town. In the distance, Kogh could see walls surrounding the town. It turned out that the town was, in fact, a city. A live city. It was filled with people, buildings, technology and automated machine guns.
Wait, automated machine guns. One was turning towards them. He reached for Rose's shirt, whom she was easily in the air, thanks to the axe she was standing on. Kogh pulled her using the force and she was reeled back unwillingly. The gun fired and the bullet missed Rose.
He grabbed hold of Rose's hand and moved her back a few hundred metres away from the city. He let out a deep breath as Rose craned her whole body until she almost lost balance. She didn't fall, though. Kogh was putting his right hand out in the air, sensing even the slightest movement. Rose didn't understand why he had to put his hand out. Instead of replying to her question about that, he hushed her. It was hard to explain, even though Rose knew how he got that power.
Soldiers were stationed on the walls of the city. They were probably on alert by now, wondering what had happened. He discouraged Rose to go there, since it was a more dangerous task to get out once they got in. But she insisted on going.
He also couldn't understand why monsters of corruption spread from this particular city. Were they released from their cages?
He let out a breath. He was fine with Rose's wish, but he warned her that if death came to their doors, he would only be partly at fault. He giggled at that warning, but he was serious after all.
He flew up, asking Rose to sit still, or rather float still. Up a few hundred metres, he moved forward and saw the city again. The buildings were of almost the same design as East, as he remembered it to be. The cars that were traversing the buildings were similar to the cars in East. They were powered by electricity. The whole city was like a replica of East, except one thing. It was dark as the night here. Almost no light was visible.
He easily slipped past the defenses of the city and descended himself. The tallest thing he saw was a radio tower. He put his foot on the tip and used the force to balance himself. Below, there were a few cars parked just nearby the tower. Right now, he didn't know what to do, whether to jump down or to just stay here and watch.
He heard sirens from a police car but never saw any lights. He jerked his head up a little as he realised. Rose.
He blasted up into the air and raced against the police to the entrance of the city. Then, sadly, he saw it. Rose was surrounded by soldiers with guns different from what East was using. Her hands were up in the air with her axe. Kogh hoped for the sun to appear but it wouldn't. At least it would have helped him to see through the darkness in this city.
Almost immediately, Kogh neared one of them from behind and solidified force into a blade. He slit the man's throat and took his gun. The man fell to the floor with blood spraying everywhere. He didn't know how to use that thing, but he was hoping this gun was as any good as the blast gun. The problem was that he hadn't held a gun before.
Never mind. This would do, he thought, as he threw the gun at the nearest soldier. He extended his hand towards the gun and let out a force that pushed the gun through the soldier's heart.
He didn't have time to look at him die as he splayed his right arm wide and sent a ripple of force to knock them away from Rose. She saw that hand movement and ducked under it and for that, Kogh was relieved Rose didn't get caught in it.
He launched himself with force, wielding the blade coated with blood. With the amount of momentum he had, he landed foot first into a soldier's face, crushing his nose, then his face. Dust was sent up as Kogh landed hard with the soldier's face. There was so much force that the face was unrecognisable. He half-grinned as dust flew up. For a few seconds, the battle was his to win. He took that chance and sensed three other soldiers in confusion. He threw his blade and he heard a half-scream and a half-gag from a soldier as his body went motionless.
He flew up, accidentally pushing the dust away from the area, but it didn't matter. The other two soldiers were already in horror. He sent a ball-shaped force down to the man's belly and it opened wide with guts flying.
He was smiling over the kill when he got shot in the belly. The same consequence as the soldier he had killed before.
He fell to the ground, numb from the shot. His ears rang. He could hear Rose shouting, but not what she said.

Chapter 24

Rose tensed her body up to the point when blue veins started to show. She had him and she lost him, twice. She saw the last soldier with his ****able rifle while readying for an axe throw. The soldier forgot her, which was both laughable and confusing. She wasn't laughing at that time. She went and threw her axe with the maximum amount of force she could apply. The axe buried itself in the soldier's right leg and he let out an agonizing shout as he knelt. She made the axe return and heard him shouted once more. She threw her axe again, but this time, the axe penetrated through that thick skull of his. His screaming stopped with a rough gasp and collapsed onto the ground, with blood pooling around him.
She didn't bother to take the axe with her. She just sprinted to a fallen Kogh and held his limp body up. He was dead again. Even his death was quicker than the one with the bee creatures.
She looked up as clicking sounds were surrounding her. She and Kogh were encircled by new soldiers. The soldiers wore the same uniform as the other dead soldiers, wielding the same kind of rifle. They had visors to shield their faces.
I would chew your faces off if I had to, thought Rose. She looked at one of them with a murderous look.
Kogh coughed out blood and it landed on Rose's left cheek. She stopped that murderous look and saw Kogh opening his eyes. She suddenly rested her shoulders and looked up into the night sky with joy like the time when she met Kogh in Fisher Village. She started giggling, showing her bright teeth in the moonlight.
The soldiers heard her and let out a questioning tone that was wordless simultaneously. In an instant, Kogh pushed his hand down and force waves shoved the soldiers away from the couple. Rose was still looking up and giggling so much that she didn't realise Kogh took her axe. There was a scream of pain, then the axe returned to her hand, with the soldier's blood. She stopped laughing and frowned with confusion, then brought herself back to the world. Kogh was only dead for a short while and she was thankful for that.
Immediately, Rose took off of the ground with her axe under her and flew above one of the soldiers. She saw Kogh threw a ball of force to a downed soldier and ripped through his head, blood gushing and painting the floor. Rose took her axe and quickly threw it down to the soldier below her and it dug through his armor. He stopped moving after that. The axe returned to her feet and she floated again.
Kogh made another force blade and ran towards a soldier that was already up and ready to shoot. Then, there was another gunshot. The bullet hit the blade of the axe and she lost balance. While she was falling, she saw a lot more soldiers coming this way, maybe fifty to sixty. She cursed at them while making the axe retract back to her hand. She was in time to step on her axe and stop herself from getting broken legs. She launched herself up using the axe and took it along with her. She found the soldier who shot her axe and cast it to the soldier.
Surprisingly, the soldier reacted and rolled to the side. The axe rebounded off the floor and it came back to Rose. She saw the rifle from his hands being pointed at her and she jerked sideways. He fired that gun and the bullet went flying into the night sky, missing Rose, thankfully.
This time, she moved in for the kill, literally. She zoomed towards the soldier. Her body was facing the floor when she did this and stopped suddenly when she reached point-blank range. She jumped from the axe and took it with her, again, and in the air, she held the axe with both her hands as she drove the point of it past his helmet, down into his brain. She was sick about it when she was a child. She saw a horror movie with her father. Violence and gore were displayed extensively in that movie and it gave her nightmares when she slept. She didn't get a nightmare after day one, though. Now, she wasn't scared to kill. If she could kill a monster of corruption and darkness without fear, killing a human would be less scary. At least for her.
When she remembered the reinforcements arriving, she shouted to Kogh that they needed to go somewhere else. Kogh nodded as she landed onto the floor. Then, she was hit in the back of her neck so hard that she went unconscious.

Chapter 25

Its body began to regenerate. Bone started repairing itself, bone cells joining in with the big bone and attaching them to it. Flesh moved in to weave and fill up whatever that tore up the skin. Consciousness seeped back into the beast as its body mended itself. The first thing it sensed was the heat. It came back the second time.
From far away, it heard explosions and sounds that were unfamiliar to it. It clicked its tongue and sensed walls around it. The last time it remembered, the beast had been out in the region when suddenly pain had erupted from its back like a huge sting.
For now, it could only do what was possible, jumping up. It was apparently trapped in an equally square hole. The floor was hard and almost unbreakable. When it felt the floor, there were patterns running along the floor which were greatly irregular. There was a sharp edge at one line of the patterns and it stumbled on it. Its foot bled, but was quickly recovered due to the sun rays.
It leaned on its haunches backwards and when it thought it was ready to launch itself, it did. Its grown muscles should be strong enough for it to reach the top... But it barely reached one third of it.
It landed and crashed through the floor into a chamber. It detected floating humans and something thin around their necks. Those thin things were connected to parts of the roof that didn't collapse. Some humans were on the floor with the same kind of thing around their necks. It just didn't know what it was.
There was something small erected from a part of the wall. Then, it got turned and that particular wall was slid open. A human, full of meat and blood, was standing in front of it.
He shouted at it for some reason. But it recognised what he said. It was being mocked.
It stooped forward while growling at him. He laughed and reached for his side, fumbling for a stick-like weapon. It assumed it was one of those things that could launch something lethal towards its enemy, so it lunged at him almost immediately. Its paws reached him first, tearing his shoulders apart. Its whole body crushed him even before he could attack.
Tempted, it bit off part of his neck and ate the flesh for its enjoyment. Though, it was over when the human stunned it with something shocking, literally.
It swore it had killed him by smashing him. Its thoughts faded as it went out cold.
When it woke up, it was trapped by spikes pierced through its four paws. It tried pulling one of its limbs away but it couldn't budge. It was sure that it was bleeding from it, but it couldn't sense any pain. The sunlight was like a friend to it. Its heat would comfort and strengthen it every time. It would encourage it to fight back and retaliate with bravery. But now, the sunlight was useless against this.
The spikes, unfortunately, were fused into the wall behind it. It sniffed at the air and caught a funny smell. A noxious and funny smell it was. It was like its own piss and anything putrid and rotten combined, added with something toxic. When it updated its radar, it sensed four walls, yet again, but much smaller, like it was just for its size. It couldn't understand why sunlight was shining through.
There was a table at the edge of the opposite wall with some equipment on it. Pieces of paper were scattered through the table. There was no chair, though.
Then, a door opened from the beast's side. From there came the human it had attacked. But it didn't smell blood. He didn't bleed where he stood. His hands held a tray of the source of the funny smell. He stepped closer to it within out of range of its sharp teeth.. And dumped the source at its face.
It resisted the splash, but what happened afterward was torture. Its face was burned and healed at the same time. While this happened, the human laughed so maniacally that it added to the emotional pain. It convulsed, but didn't roar at all. It needed the roar for later.
It shivered as the burning was over. He had burst into tears of laughter and was still laughing to death. It hoped he died from laughing, though.
He shook his head and went over to the table. He sat on it and looked at the beast, its face recovering from the searing. It couldn't hear anything, but it clicked its tongue and read his lips which smiled.
Kogh, you are one funny little boy.

Finally, I get to WRITE!!!!! The slight hiatus was because I had an exam. So, apologies, if you were waiting for the next chapter.

Chapter 26

How did one escape from enemies cornering him? By accidentally triggering a safety alarm laser located between two rocks. The soldiers of East hadn't enough time to get back to East before Gatling guns started spinning and firing at life, even the soldiers. For some reason, Myke wasn't detected, maybe because the rock, even though deteriorated, shielded him from long range infrared detectors. Behind him, East soared proudly and in front of it were bodies, monsters of darkness and soldiers alike.
When it was over, presumably by the spinning Gatling guns stopping, he looked up. The Gatling guns which were on the walls, started sinking into their original resting places. This system hadn't been used since the war with the monsters of death, where he killed a bunch before this happened.
He still needed to get into the city, not because he needed to report to the mayor (He already gave up doing so when the soldiers had arrested him), but because he needed to find out what had happened.
The furnished front gate was open for investigation, so if he could be stealthy, he could sneak in. But thanks to the sun, it was harder to do so, but he slipped past investigators and felt proud once he squirmed in.
The roads were full of movement; cars twisting left and right, buses stopping at their stations to pick up more customers and bullet trains shooting past buildings that were lit by their own owners. It was an interesting sight to see, had it not been obscured by police cars surrounding the entrance with their blinding red and blue lights.
The reason why people were able to get onto the walls, like last time, was because there were two entrances leading up. He took the one on the right without gathering suspicion and walked up the stairs. In his previous days, the effort taken to climb these monstrous concrete steps would have taken at least a few minutes. But now, it seemed like he reached the top in no time.
There were patrolling guards here as well, some looked unfamiliar, some looked downright stupid for some reason. Myke just thought they looked dumb overall.
He went over to a guard and held his head, then pulled in the opposite directions and snapped his neck. The weapon he held was a blast gun with a steel knife. Steel knives were no longer useful to the monsters out there. He bet the man killed some civilians with this. The knife wasn't sharp, but not dull either.
He dragged the body behind a big package that was abandoned.
Weirdly enough, no one had suspected anything yet, even though the sun revealed him like a black dot on a white background. But there were things like crates, big platforms that could just shield his body if he laid himself on the ground. He did have his whip and laser knife, so he used it for his next kill.
He wasn't sure why he was doing this. He felt the need to. He brought out his whip and laser knife. The knife had a hilt with a button. Press the button and you'd get a laser of a certain distance rising from its power core. The guard was looking over and staring at the Darkness region when Myke sent his whip crackling across and wrapping it around the guard's neck. He dragged the guard with quick succession and jabbed the laser-less hilt into his neck, then pressed the button, sending heat to melt through the vocal cords within a second.
He turned his head left and looked with bafflement. Far off, he saw a gigantic monster of death unleashed to destroy the city.
Okay, this wasn't about the mayor anymore. Maybe it was, but he wasn't the main point. The main point was that where in the world did that thing come from? The humongous beast was red in whole with eyes as dark as Myke's armour. It had an arm attached to its head along with two arms on its side. Its destruction was trying to be stopped by soldiers, tanks, helicopters and all sorts of weaponry, but they couldn't stop it. They only had a matter of time before it destroyed the city.
He believed that the mayor had something to do with this. Or else, something like this wouldn't happen.
What was more confusing than the monster was the figures on top of the monster's head (Not the arm). There were two figures apparently fighting for their lives.
