Unfortunately, there's more where that came from!
And besides, I like writing!

C H A P T E R 32
- - - Reunited Once More! Not. - - -

"Intruder inbound! Intruder inbound!"
The repeated shouts came from the speakers in the very same prison, located high above the tenth floor.
Indeed, intruders were inbound. Gilbert's team were.
Bill had blasted the metal doors open and dented them into crumpled paper. He took the damage from the bullets shot by guards everywhere.
Gilbert went in and started sharpshooting the guards. He rushed in and brought out his Pair Of Blades, uncombined, and aimed with a quick glance. He pulled the trigger and red light was flushed out from both pistols. The shots went into heads, chests and limbs. Some were even dead. Some shouted, "No! Don't kill me!"
But it would be disrupted by the time Gilbert rushed in on them and snapped their necks.
Amelek went in last, with hands at his arms, shivering as it was winter in this area. It was almost zero degree Celsius. He was covered with a jungle of coats. His nature to produce heat and resist heat has not been acquired yet because he, as a semi-Halbertian, was not fully developed yet. Gilbert had that nature already. And Bill.. Let's just say he also had the same nature too.
Bill, yet again, charged on towards the second set of doors. The second pair of doors was not very dented as the first one. It was made of stronger metal.
Amelek was smart enough to notice the changes.
"What kind of security is this?" He whispered to himself.
The interior of the prison was metallic and cleaned to the max, except the cafeteria, because that is where all food fights begin. There were ten floors, the first floor being where the team was. The second to the tenth floors were all prison cells. Guards were nowhere to be seen, but prisoners inside their cells.
"Well, Gilbert? Where do we start?" asks Amelek with a slight grin.
"Well, we could start from top to bottom. I know this place-"
"No, you don't," Amelek interrupts. "You only know Cred and Cred only."
Gilbert's anger was arisen a little. "I know Earth-"
"Yeah, yeah," Amelek shouted as he went to the stairs.
The stairs were metallic too. The steps are a little too high for humans and a person could drop off if pushed because there were not any rails to hold on to.
Amelek climbed up two steps per climb and was at running speed. Gilbert was already catching up fast, but Bill was left behind because of his sheer size not being able to fit through the flights of stairs.
Amelek's legs were only starting to shake when Gilbert went up without much difficulty.
"You go left, I go-"
Amelek raised his right arm and touched Gilbert's head with his palm. He enclosed his fingers and turned Gilbert's head to the right.
"There's a hole. Yulli could have made it."
Gilbert made a slight frown while approaching to Amelek's forearm when it contracted from him.
"Wait, that's the way to The Nameless Bar."
"So.." Amelek said, while looming towards the hole for closer inspection. "They're hungry."
Then, Amelek let his shoulders down like he was disappointed. His face was like a Oh-C'mon! face, but without exclamation.
"Then why did we charge into this place anyway?!" He shouted with shot-up arms, then flailing it around in a split second.
Then, both of them argued, with Bill standing there like a statue.
'Wump'
Both of them stopped arguing after a minute. The boy and Halbertian could have sworn there was a monster groaning.
'Wump!'
Amelek shouted suddenly, "Wargh!!!" His knowledge of cursing and swearing was spat out.
Gilbert hushed him, but surprisingly, Amelek immediately shut up.
A floating figure in black robes hovered above the ground from one of the prison cells. Reasons on how he escaped or got out of the bars were unknown. It was heavily robed, but the face was revealed. It was jet black, except for the eyes. The eyes had a wide variety of colours, ranging from red to violet in the rainbow. White runes were tattooed or, better explained, burned, everywhere around his face. They were in unknown language, not even historians recognize in one bit. Though, with Amelek's sharp eyes, there was a word that was written in English that said, 'Control'. He had no hair, leaving his bald scalp round and shiny, so to speak.
"I come in peace."
Gilbert and Amelek looked at each other.
"Yulli?" Amelek said softly. Both of them looked back.
In fact, the figure did look like Yulli.
"There is an uprising, caused by my master. And Master wants to destroy the Universe-"
"Why?" Amelek asks suddenly. He grasped onto his Pair Of Blades at both his pockets.
"Stop grabbing on to your weapons, child. I repeat, I come in peace. I want to stop Master for he wants to destroy the worlds we live in. Do you agree to come and help me?"
Amelek released his grip on the guns and said in a cold tone, "How could we trust you?"
"Why should I halt my master from destroying the universe? Is it not his dreams to do so and I, to follow him? After all, I call Master, my master."
"What's his name?" asks Gilbert.
The figure started to shiver and vibrate a bit.
"It is best I do not tell you. That sentence was all I have. So, if you trust me, I shall give you my powers. Or rather, share."
WUMP!!!!!!
"Okay, it's not that guy. It is," stated Amelek in a loud voice while pushing his index finger towards a big slimy monster. It has one eye and a big, gigantic mouth. It is like a Ditto in Pokémon, but a much larger version. The eye is a very unique eye. It contains the normal eyes' contents of a human, but it can shoot acidic slime from the eyeball itself, as it was shown shooting it just now and Gilbert, Amelek and the figure avoiding it. The mouth contains a cave of white and vigorous carnivore teeth.
"Get on to the platform!" shouts the figure.
He makes a platform out of his own black skin. It was rectangle and a size as big as a carpet in a grand house.
"Magic carpet!" Amelek shouted, mixed with excitement and fear, and jumped onto the carpet with Gilbert and the figure.
"We can use this vain place for an experiment. I am going to test my power sharing. Come close, fellows. And, my name, finally, is Yulli."
Gilbert and Amelek looked at each other again.
And runes were carved all over Gilbert and Amelek.

- - - Falcon Time! - - -

Long since forgotten, Falcon had been laying on the floor in the hosts' room. It felt like Paul was gone eras ago, Gilbert and two others broke through the prison as if it was last year and Louie escaped along with Yulli two years ago.
But indeed, Falcon woke up two days on a white and deathly bed in a hospital. The bed was surrounded by waves of white curtains held by the track of thin metal that got hooked.
He woke up, his hands spreading across his head to check any problems. He proceeded to turn his body and step up from the bed.
"Folcan. Where are you?"
The voice alone echoed throughout this room. Copies of his voice were repeated over and over as if it was a gigantic room. Footsteps sounded as the voice rang into the doctors' and nurses' ears. The curtains were swung open and mouths moved in multiple ways. Some were constantly opening and closing, some just opened widely.
He was instantly ushered to his bed by one of the nurses for check-up. Folcan, as big as always, barely hid behind the curtains, his head almost reaching the metal.

An hour later

"Folcan, what's the status?"
Falcon laid his forearms on his table back on Xernian. There was a slight change to his office. A new device was added into the office. It was a big 50-inch television that shows the whole of Xernian from a satellite's view. He was also back on his favourite chair, the uncomfortable one and looked up at his very own brother.
"Everything looks fine. Xernian is safe, but we have yet to capture Paul, let alone capture the ship."
"Dang it!" There was a bang on the table.
"Where's Kage?" Falcon asked.
Folcan hesitated for a moment. "He's gone too, sir."
"Well, let's start over. We can separate troops to search related places-"
"But there's a thousand places in Halbert and you don't even know where-"
"Shut up, I'm talking here!"
He did not realize he was standing up already, perhaps from excitement and anger at the same time. Sweat was leaking from his head, red as wine. His face was a bitter mixture of disgust, hate and disappointment.
Ping!
His head turned to his left and saw a small green dot in the television that was heading for Xernian directly above the office. Then, alarms were sounded.
Folcan rushed towards Falcon and grabbed him. He missed his footing and tripped, but recovered as he smashed the door open to the hallway.
It was long enough to be terrifying when it was night, and it was. The hallway was flooded with doors at its sides, leading to offices of each kind of ministries. The hallway had floors of glittering beige tiles and was sometimes a game to the employees and employers to step between the cracks, which was fun, usually. The walls were painted red with elegance and awareness, letting not one drop of paint ruin anything at all, with the ceiling included. Every few feet on the ceiling, oblong-shaped fluorescent light bulbs paced backwards as Folcan rushed through the hallway, careful not to hurt his brother.
Doors behind Folcan opened and Hellbertians appeared. All were in suits for work. Most of them panicking.
The small green dot was reaching the office and now in range of 200 metres before landing. Folcan was already reaching for the end of the hallway when the thing hit the office.
Falcon looked behind and his face was assaulted by dust caused by the blast's force. The explosion was bright green, but the ones far behind Folcan were only affected. Dust only covered the rest. The explosion was small, but the force it gives was a notable effect as it was abnormally more than the expected radius. It pushed the whole building down. The ceiling revealed cracked spacings, then in an instant, debris was collapsing next onto crimson-skinned victims, but not Folcan.
The force pushed Folcan forward the door and Falcon missed a steel pole by an inch. Only Folcan got impaled.
Blood stained Falcon's face as he was gasping, half from the hydrogen loss and half from his brother's death.
"Folcan? Folcan?! Hey! Hey! WAKE UP!!!!"
Folcan was sprayed with blood across his face and his clothes. The steel pole penetrated through the skull and the brain. If it did pierce through somewhere other than the brain, he would have lived. But he didn't. Regeneration was impossible for this kind of injury. His face was a wrecked havoc, his mouth opening in horror, his eyes widened to the utmost limit.
A hand covered a cheek of the face. It started petting the cheek.
"Wake up. Wake up. Wake up."
It started to hit faster, along with the high-pitched slapping noise being louder.
Bang!
Falcon looked up to the sky and saw a message made out of purely fireworks.
I don't need you anymore.
-Kage

- - - Yulli, The Good Or The Bad? - - -

"Yulli, why are we in a bar?" asked Louie as he sat on a stool and turned his face towards Yulli.
The bar inside here is a traditional bar like those saloons in the olden times back on Earth. It had that smooth feeling when it came to the wooden floor and planks were made with it. Some nails and screws were used in it, some loose, some tight. A few people had bar fights and the floor was the cause of splinters everywhere. The bar was decently small, with three small round tables by each side and two chairs each table. Near and inside the entrance appeared a counter where a bartender serves all kinds of drinks. There was a second floor leading to enclosed rooms for mafia business that no one cares to bother.
"One vodka shot and a glass of rum!" shouted Yulli as he banged the counter with his right fist while smiling widely.
The bartender was a Halbertian, but he was silent in everything he did and he did not say a thing. He took a bottle of vodka while taking out a small glass. He poured it down the small glass and slid it towards Yulli with proficiency.
He grabbed the sliding glass like it was automated and took a sip. He shivered.
"Feels great to be here again."
"But," Louie said. "I don't drink."
Yulli tilted his head and narrowed his right eye.
"C'mon, it's only one day. It couldn't hurt, could it?"
A tall glass, about three times taller than the short glass beside it, filled with that brownish and yellowish liquid stood in front of Louie, waiting to be drank.
Louie felt unsure about it.
"C'mon, let me do it."
Yulli instantly grabbed the glass and chugged it down Louie. For the actual first time in his life, this was his first alcohol drank. It tasted sour.
Louie looked the other way and started coughing with a loud bark.
"What was that?!" He spat, but only saliva came out.
"Why, that was rum. How did it taste like?"
Louie stood up with his hands wrapped gently around his throat. His cheeks were red with the rum, his eyes widened, his jaw shaking.
"Hot, from the mouth down the throat!"
"That's more like it. Here! Have so'more!"
He shouted an order of a bottle of rum and quickly chugged it into Louie's mouth.
A few minutes later, he was very drunk.
"Good," Yulli said with the very same smile when ordering.
Louie was blabbering about the taste of rum and the love of his life.
He was a mess. His dark and dull blue shirt was stained with rum due to the forcing down of the bottle of rum. His black plain pants measuring down to just below the knee was wet too. His face was of a happy fool's face. His eyes were closed together opposite to the mouth smiling and laughing loudly and openly. He had hiccups from time to time and kept on shouting, "MORE RUM! MORE RUM!"
He was dragged by Yulli over to the second floor where no one was right now.
The second floor looked more like a corridor of rooms, all still made out of wooden planks. There were four doors leading to rooms. Two at the furthest were closed. Only the left one and the right one just between Yulli was opened. There were no lights here. Light was only provided in the rooms. The doors were made out of reinforced wooden planks. They came from trees that were specially in Xernian. Seeing this months ago, Yulli concluded that it was a Hellbertian that owned this place.
Yulli pulled the laughing body into the room to his right.
"What's happening-"
Hic!
"Um," Yulli said. "We're going back home."
"But we don't have a home," Louie countered, but never realized because he was so drunk.
"I've.." He hesitated. "I've got an errand. You stay here-"
"Okay!" Louie shouted suddenly. Luckily, the walls here were soundproof, even if the walls were made from wood.
Yulli took off his shirt by unbuttoning it. He pulled the shirt off his chest and black runes encircled his dirty navel. He reached for the runes and traced it. Black snakes appeared from the runes and climbed onto his finger. They later enveloped his whole hand to his wrist. The snakes stayed there, obedient to his master.
He stuck the covered hand into Louie's stomach.

- - - Brian's Gang: Part 1 - - -

Hours after Chapter 34

Kage sat on a wooden and stiff chair in front of a wooden table that was just a head lower than himself, tapping his feet as he waited.
The room was in a distorted dimension. It contained of weird and groovy walls that were purple as violas. There was one door that also followed the pattern on the walls. The room was small, only having a 21 square metre space. Every non-living thing that was here was wooden. The height of the room was similar to Brian's height.
"Alright!"
Brian stood next to the door. Other than Kage, Louise and Louie were here, minds wiped out.
"Louie. Do you know a Halbertian named Pru?"
He was staring at the table blankly while tapping his eight fingers and two thumbs onto the table. It produced sounds that made Brian annoyed a little, but he persevered.
Louie looked up, not being aware of the situation and the question at hand.
"I said, do you know a Halbertian named Pru?!"
The voice boomed across the room and bounced everywhere.
"I have never heard of it," said Louie monotonously.
"Don't lie!"
Bang!
The table shook, making all three of the apprentices to jerk up straight, aligning their back to the spine of the chair.
"Master," Kage said. "Maybe he doesn't know-"
Bang!
"Shut up, Kage!"
Brian took a seat on the chair and laid his elbows upon the table and rested his head on his hands. His mind was jumbled up from today's work, earning credits by marketing illegal devices, dealing with sneaky thieves and a whole bunch of non-legal activities.
"Master?" That was Louie talking.
"I need to know if you know Pru. He is hunting me down, from childhood til' now. Plus, I'm not even sure where he is right now. Could be in Xernian. Or even in Halbert. Trillions of planets out there. He attacked me-"
"Master. If I may be so bold, when and where were you attacked?" Louise said with a formal tone. Unusual it is for her to be talking this way.
"Well.."

Flashback To Year 35 A.D.

Brian the kid fell to the rubber floor. His butt hurt like poking needles as he landed.
"Why are you here again?!"
He was out at the park, playing at the swing. He was rather hard with it to the point of almost no return. The park had two sets of swings, each set having a pair of swings. There were two sets of see-saws. They were left empty when Brian fell. Kites flew, coordinating to the wind, which was strong. Benches lay beside the jogging path and a basketball court nearby was fortified with fences so that balls would not escape from the court easily. It was empty too. Yellow rails made of metal surrounded the park except for two entrances that were emphasized quite well with poles of metal as broad as the rails making a bridge-like pattern and enough space for people to walk by. There were signs that said 'Park' and was erected with efficiency. Small children as young as seven or eight years old were frightened and scared upon seeing a Halbertian with a pistol. Parents quickly got their children and tried to run away but the Halbertian was shooting off warning shots at them to stop them fro0m running.
"I told you, you would rue the day you injured me."
Pru, with a flash, aimed his pistol at Brian. At that moment, Brian smacked his hands on the floor and a rubber wall erupted from beneath, shielding himself from Pru. A shot was fired and the bullet, made out of lead, failed to penetrate through the wall. The gunshot was incredibly loud that it was ear-piercing.
"Pru, I've done my training on this.. Weird power. Give it up! It's been a year since you attacked me. It's a long time of training. You can't win-"
He gasped as he saw Pru on the rubber wall that he made. Pru was smiling.
Then Brian was smiling as well.
"Bad idea, Pru."
Brian smacked his hands again onto the rubber floor and a spike appeared from under Pru. It impaled through his you-know-what up to his head.
"Now you know why you shouldn't mess with me-"
He was so into delighting his victory that he only realized that he was surrounded by armed policemen aiming their shotguns and pistols at him.
"If you move," said one of them. "You will be shot."
"Heck if I care!"
Brian pushed at the air with both arms at both sides. Wind obeyed his command and swept the policemen away like an explosion.
He got up and looked at Pru.
Even after the humongous pain, Pru still got to talk.
"Watch out."
Pru disappeared out of thin air.

Now

"Dude, you own him! How could you be so afraid-"
"First of all, it's not all. And you didn't call me Master!"
Brian swung an arm up and Kage was sent away with a strong rush of wind. It pushed him against the wooden wall and proceeded to choking him.
"Say it," Brian held up his hand to his ear to listen to him.
"Yes," He gasped. "Mas.. Ter."
Kage was let off. He landed on the floor with a bumping sound and held his throat gently as he regained hydrogen.
"So that's why I am strict if you don't call me Master. Got it, both of you?"
Louie and Louise nodded slowly like they were brainwashed zombies.
Then Louise initiated, "So what other attacks did you encounter, Master?" It was a sweet tone and Louie was himself for a second before the magic enveloped him.
"I-"
"Wait, where's Paul?"
Brian clicked his fingers together and Kage burned, but not the room because of its magical protection.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
He ran around the room like an idiot would.
Brian tapped his right foot lightly and a piece of wood of Kage's mouth size traveled to his mouth and sealed it off shut, which meant piercing through the lips if necessary.
"A rather foolish and disobedient, this one. But he still obeys. What a resilient one," Brian commented.
"Paul," He answered. "Is in a cell bound by psychic barriers. It would hold him until his mind is completely taken over."
"But why, Master?" Louie said this time.
"His mind is strong. It was able to overcome one of my minion's mind capture longer than any of you. Say, Louie. Is Paul that smart?"
"Well, he is four times smarter than Albert Einstein."
Brian sighed with his mouth closed. "I don't know who that is, but I'm guessing he's really smart then."
"So why are you scared of Pru, Master?" Louise asked in a sweeter tone. Louie's spell had been broken yet again, but for longer this time.
"Where am I?!"
Louie was looking around, absorbing the situation into his head and wondering why and how he came here. He looked to his right.
"Louise?!" His eyes widened as he saw her in this place. He was then embracing Louise in his arms warmly, not caring about what happens in the world anymore, or at least in this room.
"Master, why is Louie.."
Brian pushed at the air and psychic waves enveloped Louie in an instant. The waves whirled around him until he was brainwashed again.
"It seems I have to see Yulli for this. The hybrid one, that is."
"There are two, Master?" Louise asked.
"Oh yes. One shady and one proud. This has nothing to do with Pru for now. And the reason why I am starting to get scared of Pru.."

Flashback To Year 36 A.D.

Brian the kid was in an alleyway, living by the streets. His parents had abandoned him as he was a monster, technically speaking. Due to that, he had more time to concentrate on improving his powers. He was not on his way to ultimate mastery, but it was improving drastically. He had lived the thug life, robbing department stores and restaurants for food and water. Shelter was not a problem as he could make one by manipulating the ground.
The alleyway had a few dumpsters posted at one side of the concrete walls. The floor was as the same colour as the roads on Earth in the future, with a few number of cracks of tar. Looking up, the sky was clear with only a few pure white clouds floating around.
Brian was there, eating food he stole from, when Pru, the same Halbertian stumbled upon his nemesis.
"Brian. Time for you to die!"
He lunged at Brian with full force.

- - - Gilbert's Past - - -

Same time as Chapter 32

"What are these?" asked Gilbert.
"They are runes. Some of them enable you to use magic. The rest augment your magic."
They were outside the prison, ready to slay the blob into pieces. Or burn it to ashes.
The remains of the defense perimeter were still intact, with walls embracing slight dents and scratches too small to be noticed from afar. The area was suddenly empty of unconscious guards. There were traces of blood, but they were too random to be traced. The ground absorbed some of the blood, it being dirt and gravel fused with.
Gilbert had a headache, his hands pressing against his temples, but carefully not to pierce them with his talons. Amelek had a headache too, but much stronger than that due to the fact that he was a hybrid. Humans faint instantly when they get these runes. Halbertians are hardier than humans. They were still on the organic platform, made out of the skin of a certain magician who called himself Yulli.
A few minutes was all it took for Gilbert to recover from the ache. He was lying on the platform, not sure what happened. He lifted himself a bit using his elbow and turned his neck to the robed magician and asked, "What's my status?"
Yulli raised his right arm and aimed his palm at Gilbert's head. The palm pulsed a green aura.
"You are fine. Do not worry. But do worry about your fellow over there," Yulli said as he pointed at Amelek, who had passed out a few seconds ago.
Gilbert got up to his feet and crouched down to wake Amelek up, but to no avail.
"How long will Amelek wake up?" He asked without looking at Yulli.
"Were my calculations be correct, it would consume five minutes at the least. His brain is comprehending the formulas of magic. Do not worry. Louie, Louise and Paul had-"
Gilbert turned around and immediately clawed Yulli's face with his talons. His eyes were wide in terror, his eyebrows lifted up within half its maximum height. His mouth was wide open, but not too big. He was breathing in hydrogen through his mouth. Then everything on his face became insane.
He was looking up in the air, laughing hysterically to himself. His bright red teeth shone in the sunlight. His lips were in an abnormally wide arc. His eyelids were opened widen compared to just now. Then, he started to claw his own face too.
"Paul got captured!" There was a puff of crazy laughter in between. "Louie got captured! Louise got captured!"
He was cracking up so much that he dropped to the floor.
Then he was dead insane. The bad insane.
"You captured them!"
He thrust both his arms toward Yulli, who was on the platform, minding his own face.
Yulli, with the power of manipulation of air, was able to sense his movements and he smacked the platform with his right fist. Black skin appeared from the platform under Gilbert and pushed Gilbert off the platform at his stomach. The push had a force stronger than a machine gun. He flew more than 25 feet.
When he landed hard, he immediately got up and looked at Yulli with red iris eyes. Yulli had triggered his sealed memories unintentionally.

Gilbert was once a Halbertian, living in a simple home, with normal parents and normal friends. His home was of metal, titanium, wood, gadgets, comfort, entertainment, resources and safety. Television were placed in each room, especially the toilet.
"But Mom-"
"No buts, Gilbert. Back to your room!"
Gilbert ran to his room on the second floor with tears rolling down his cheeks.


Gilbert rushed at Yulli with unimaginable speed and stabbed a talon into his abdomen, then making his talons 'twist'. The twirl caused an acute pain and the small intestines whirled into life as the talon mixed it along with the liver like a blender. The talons moved around, tearing Gilbert's skin apart just to move them in a circular motion.
"GET OFF!!" shouted Yulli.
He blasted Gilbert off himself with air, but taking his major organs along. It also damaged his lungs, causing him to put his palm against his chest instinctively.

Gilbert cried in his room, muttering curses at his parents. His room had a computer even more advanced than the supercomputers back on Earth, a bookshelf where he kept old novels like the Sherlock Holmes series. The room had a bed that could be sheltered with glass for air-conditioning inside. The switch was placed inside the bed too. A huge 100 inch wide television stood on a furnished table opposite the computer.
He looked up and flickered his eyes because of the tears. He wiped it off with his bare hands. He was not scared of his talons because they have not grown into full size yet.
"I just went out one step outside and they grounded me.."
His eyes turned red. Then his talons grew fast in a short time, shorter than a Halbertian transforming into a Hellbertian, which only took one second.


Gilbert got up with a handful of guts in his right hand. He suddenly raised his head diagonally and smiled bloodily. His lips were coated in dark red blood. His teeth was darker than their usual self. He licked his lips and looked at Yulli without turning his head.
"I remember now. It was YOU who killed my parents!"

Gilbert walked down the stairs, disobeying his parents. His talons grew sharper and thinner as he continued his steps.
"Hey, Mom!"
She was sitting on a sofa that contains countless customization. She was thinking whether she had been too harsh or not.
"Gilbert, I thought-"

Splash.
Blood splattered the titanium floor. A hand rolled on the floor, with blood still spewing out. The talons Gilbert had had stretched across the small distance between him and his mother's wrist. The mother was dazed from the pain.
She shrieked and fainted.
The father came afterwards. He was dazed too, but angry and confused at the same time. He turned his gaze to his son, Gilbert.
He turned around quickly and started to run, but got caught at the leg. He was being pulled in. He felt utterly frightened, but disgusted at the same time. It was something in a semi-liquid, semi-solid state. Or rather, the mother's blood.
Gilbert looked at the father who had eyes full of terror and a jaw with bitter surprise.
"Gilbert, don't-"

Snap!
It was his neck. Killed by the mother's blood. Gilbert's eyes returned to normal. Then, he absorbed the situation that was at hand.
It was definitely bloody. Red liquid spilled from the father's neck. The skin, muscle and bone were torn apart, literally, and the mother passed away from loss of blood. Both of them had their faces written in horror. The bodies bathed in blood, it trailing towards Gilbert. He stepped away from the blood and covered his mouth with his hands as quickly as possible. Then, he could not resist any more. Torrents of wastes from his stomach flowed from his throat and splashed the floor. They fused with the blood, making them even more grotesque.
He then looked behind him. He saw a white, almost-naked, Halbertian and he disappeared a second after that.


"I still have this power, right? So.."
He flicked his head down and turned towards Yulli. He raised his arms and flailed his fingers in the speed of sound. Blood sprayed around the platform Yulli had made, was raised and then immediately wrapping Yulli around, the most of the blood surrounding the skull.
Gilbert clenched his fist.
Boom!
It all happened in a quick second. Blood was shot everywhere, exactly like the murder scene Gilbert made centuries ago.
He looked back and squatted.
"No more. No more. No more.."
He repeated the phrase while he rocked sideways.

Flashback To Year 35 A.D.

"HAHAHAHA!!!!"
Pru shouted as he lunged towards Brian. He sighed and planted his hand upon his face in disappointment.
"Haven't you learnt anything," asked Brian as he prepared a fire and wind punch combined. "That you can't get me at all-"
He swung his right hand up and Pru got mauled from the chin, but the fire and the force of the wind was not applied. Somehow, Pru had gotten at least something to nullify magic.
Pru had his claws out already and stabbed Brian at the shoulders, spilling blood out, but camouflaged by the crimson skin.
Brian acted out of instinct and raised a platform of earth as small as his shoe and let the earth bend his knee, knocking Pru at the chin, again, but blasted him 10 feet off the ground, ignoring the pain inflicted. Pru recovered slickly and shot nail missiles at Brian. He retaliated with a wall of concrete. The nail missiles exploded the wall, causing shards of concrete to cut Brian slightly.
"What..?"
His eyes widened as he saw Pru coming down on Brian, surrounded in fire. He relaxed then.
"My cue to escape."
He launched himself into the air using the combination of air pressure and manipulation of the concrete. He raised a platform to launch him and used air pressure to enable him to fly. Pru crashed into the ground with an injured head.

Now

"And that, my minions, is why I am scared of him and why I need to find a way to counter him," said Brian.
The room was quiet. An ominous atmosphere entered it when Louie broke it.
"So, have you found anything?" asked Louie.
Brian smiled, but then looked sad a split second later.
"I have to trap Pru under a strong.. trap. But I have to use magic. Pru can break almost anything and he can dispel magic. I have to research this nullifying object that is in him, but how?"
There was a sound only heard by Brian. It was a like a sonar that detected an unknown entity.
"I shall go. Leave me be for now."
He flicked his fingers and a door appeared. He opened it and went through the dimension.
Louie, Louise and Kage stayed in the room and the Hellbertian stayed at the corner of the room, burned into the bone as the door disappeared. But his magical abilities enabled him to regenerate his muscles and skin. The atmosphere was awkward again.
"So," asked Louie. "How was your past like, Kage?"
And so, Kage told Louie and Louise about how he became Paul's apprentice. There were moments of shock and laughter. There was not any evil gang as enjoyable as Brian's gang.

The chapter above should be chapter 37 instead of chapter 36. I'm sorry for the constant mistake.

- - - Temporary Alliance - - -

Same time as Chapter 36

There was a ship that saw the bloody fight between Gilbert and Yulli and saw the results of the fight. The ship was a small scout ship, set in invisibility mode. It is as small as a two-seated car. The curves of the ship were perfectly shaped and the ship is light. It looked as though it was more advanced that Halbert's own ship.
Inside the ship, it was fully metal and only one alien resided in this ship, Falcon. He was exhausted and looked tired from the explosion in Xernian. He was wearing the same shirt and pants but without his tie. He landed the ship in the forest and pressed the button to open the door. He led himself towards the destroyed prison and passed through the entrance. He took sympathy as he saw Gilbert covered in blood.
"Gilbert!"
The Halbertian who squatted turned to face him. His face was bloody too. He soon realized this and wiped his face off with Yulli's robe.
"Stay back. My powers may kill you."
Falcon really retreated until it was a safe distance from him.
"Do you know who I am, Gilbert?"
Gilbert squinted his eyes and looked at him. Then, he slowly shook his head.
"I am the president of Xernian, a planet of mutated Halbertians and-"
Gilbert raised his right arm and Falcon was lifted into the air using his blood.
"What is the meaning of this?!"
Gilbert smirked the moment he asked that question.
"All mutated Halbertians need to die. Especially you."
He slowly closed his fist, making Falcon's body so swollen, it was like a very obese man.
"Wait, wait!" Falcon exclaimed. "I am here to make a temporary alliance with you! My cause is-"
The blob monster from before appeared from the prison with Bill suddenly inside it.
"Bill!!!"
He dropped Falcon off, leaving him injured and breathing hard. Then, he used the blood spilled by Yulli and the blood absorbed by the robe and combined them together to make a gigantic mouth of the crocodile. He then left it frozen in the air and controlled Bill's blood. He pulled his hands backwards and Bill was from the blob, breathing hard like Falcon, but easier. He was covered in harmless goo and was stumbling away from the monster as Gilbert did something about it.
He motioned the mouth to life and started munching the blob. Gilbert knew it was no use, so he clenched his right fist and everything inside it was vanished, destroyed by a vacuum.
He turned towards Bill and checked if everything was alright. When he confirmed it, he turned towards Falcon, who was still recovering, and lifted him up in the air again.
"Why are you making this alliance?"
"We have the same objective."
Gilbert leaned closer to hear him out.
"We have to kill Kage and the rest of his gang."

"Another one!"
Yulli, the hybrid, was in the same bar again, drinking his favourite beer. The bar had bar fights once in a while, but this next fight was going to be the best in the whole world. It was rowdy, as usual, with some Halbertians here and there drinking down their problems or for celebrations. The VIP room was unusually noisy too, with guests as rich as businessmen, playing blackjack, poker and all sorts of card games. There were a lot of money at stake too.
There was a banging sound from the door or rather the opening of it. It was Gilbert.
Yulli started with a loud voice that stopped everyone from their businesses, "Hey, if you're going to open the door, do it softly-"
Gilbert raised his arms and lifted Yulli into the air like a baby, and tried to splay his arms, but Yulli broke the magic that was put inside his blood using his own magic.
"What is this madness?!"
He shot out a fireball that was conjured from his palms, but Gilbert used his talons to slice his skin to release the blood. From just a thin layer, he used his blood as a barricade against the fireball. It basically nullified the fireball. Gilbert made it spiked and he sent it, only to be liquefied by Yulli's magic penetration.
There was a millilitre of blood sliced from Yulli's face. It caused a small cut too. It was Falcon with a sniper rifle.
"Yulli. You are dead."
He aimed his sniper rifle at him, but did not realize Yulli had the Universe's fastest reaction. When he pull the trigger, the bullet traveled.
"Weak," said Yulli.
He moved his head to an angle and dodged the bullet within millimetres. The bullet smashed into the wall of the bar instead.
"Please use your cr*p weapon somewhere else, Falcon. I 'm gonna spare you."
He sent a thin ripple of wind which cut through the muscles of Falcon, slicing his abdomens but a few centimetres. He staggered back in shock and started to take cover behind the wall, just next to the door.
Yulli was walking towards the door, ignoring Gilbert. He smirked. He swirled his own blood around and reshaped it into a sharp thin and long blade and sent it towards Yulli's head. Gilbert expected him to dodge, but it went off too easily. The blade pierced through the skull and messed with his brains, causing instant death and paralysis. His suddenly-limp body dropping to the ground, with blood pooling around it. Every customer in the bar ran out using any measures, like breaking the window to escape. The bartender ran too.
The VIP area was vacated too, leaving just Falcon, Gilbert and Yulli's dead body.
"Isn't this a bit too easy?" said Gilbert, suspicious.
Falcon peeked around at the door, making sure Yulli was really dead. Then, he stepped forward into the bar and took out a small contraption he actually made himself. It was a DNA researcher, but it was special. It could see if the ship belonged to someone by just using it to touch the ship. It could find the owner of a thing.
He used it to touch the blood pool. The blood was absorbed into the contraption and results came out.
"It's him. We got him."

- - - Paul's Reunion - - -

Paul was stuck in an unknown room. It was made of wood, but it did not seem that the walls were breakable. The quality of the wood was average, with some holes here and there. There were no doors around and Paul had to revert to magic theories he made. He knew that this room was in another dimension, since the atmosphere was different. It was demonic, with clouds as dark as ebony and the moon as red as blood. It was a wonder for Paul on how that big Halbertian had gotten magical powers, powers that seemed to defy all laws of physics and logic.
He was bound in a magical barrier and his hands were chained with chains, but no ordinary chains. The chains were strengthened by magic itself. Psychic waves, Paul guessed.
He tried breaking the magical barrier using his legs, but it was impossible. Suddenly, he heard talking and laughter, but very muffled to the point where he could only make out, "I was," and "Pru,".
The sound of Pru made Paul sick. Pru was a demented Halbertian that was his ancestor long ago. It made him vomit in his mouth by thinking what he did when Pru invited him to come along. When Paul was a small child, prehaps 1 year old, he used to follow Pru to a room unknown to him. But a few years later, he realized it was a torture chamber. His great-great-great grandfather tortured innocent Halbertians by disembowelment and amputations. Sometimes, it was just poisoning. And in that torture chamber, Paul saw a doll that was named, 'Brian'. He asked who Brian was, but Pru shut him up and forced him to never ask that question again. He now realized who Brian was. Legend says that Pru was still out in the Universe, performing tortures on more victims.
A wooden door was summoned, but closed. Paul knew who that was and acted as if he got knocked out unconscious. There was a loud creak from the hinges and loud footsteps became louder and louder.
"Still out cold, I see,"
Paul recognized that deep voice. It was Brian. He started leaving after inspecting him. When the door disappeared with a pop sound, Paul raised his head and opened his eyes.
"Poor you," said Paul without any remorse.
It was time to carry out Paul's plan. He used his brain waves to break the chains. They successfully broke through the magic surrounding it. With fire, he burned the chains into liquid metal, making sure he did not touch it. The only problem was the barrier and how he would get out. He remembered the brief fight between him and Brian. He then thought about it. If he could hear the noises in the other room, it could apply to his noises too. But he was going to take the risk anyway.
He exploded himself from within. Fire broke through the barrier like glass. He was floating once again, then he slowly let himself down. By now, the other room would have heard him, but he had shown no signs of caring.
Since he was in another dimension, his theories of magic might work. He thought like Brian. How would Brian move through dimensions so easily?
Suddenly, Paul found himself in a bloody bar with Gilbert dragging a body and Falcon starting his scout ship. The glass here was broken.
"Well, Gilbert. It seemed that you had a bloody fight here."
He turned behind and he was slowly getting happier and happier. He hugged Paul tightly, but not too tightly.
"Where's Bill?"
Gilbert released him from the hug.
"Oh, he's in a prison from here. We're fetching him later, since Falcon-"
"Falcon?" Paul interrupted.
Paul heard a ship honked, signalling Gilbert to get on the ship.
"Let me see. You gained powers from Yulli the mage, killed him, failed to find Louie and Yulli the hybrid, made an alliance with Falcon, came to this bar and found Yulli the hybrid, and killed him?"
Gilbert retreated a bit, then relaxed.
"Typical Paul. Knows everything beforehand."
"Oh, please.."
He pointed towards the blood on the floor.
"There were two blood pools, one small pool you made, and the body's one. You used your own blood to stab or slice Yulli. And-"
Falcon got out of the ship and shouted, "COME ON, GILBERT. LET'S GO! I DON'T HAVE TIME TO STAY IN-"
Falcon was taken aback when he saw Paul.
"It's you. You were at the stadium. What are you doing here?" Falcon asked in terror.
He was trembling at the sight of Paul. Somehow, he was more scared of Paul than other things.
"Oh, hey, Gilbert's partner. Let's get back to the prison and fetch Bill-"
He stopped suddenly and requested, "Could you drop me by the nearest weapon department? You don't have to worry about me. I'll be alright."
