////Sigh....there's, like, one atau two lebih parts after this one.////////
Richi looked up at his friends, his eyes empty and cold, as if the api, kebakaran that once fueled his emotions had finally snuffed out. They glanced over at the two bodies in the shadows sejak the corner, and an audible choke escaped from his mouth. "We're done here." stated Richi, his words monotone and meaningless, and he stepped away from the decapitated corpse. Before Richi could say anything else, a long beep emitted from the remains of Giovanni's metal suit. Without warning, the ground under the teens began to tremble and rumble, and explosions could be heard on the floors below.
"Well....shit." Cain muttered. "The place was rigged to self-destruct the moment Giovanni died, huh?" He could hear Jenna muttering to herself about how "cliché" this was.
They could hear the explosions steadily growing louder. The sudden sound of glass shattering brought the group's attention to Richi, who had thrown a piece of rubble through the window. "Zeph. Take everyone and get out of here. I got something I need to take care of first." he ordered. "And..... don't forget to take them." he added.
Without waiting for a reply, Richi turned and ran out the door they came in, forcing Zephyr to follow orders. "Sean, Cain, grab Scotch's and Val's bodies. I'll be damned before I let their final resting place be here!" The tremors grew worse as the two ran over and retrieved the girls, and the building seemed as it would collapse at any moment. As the boys ran back to the window, Zephyr yelled over the noise, "Jump! JUMP!"
At once, the four leaped over the remaining jagged glass and fell down to the Earth as the bahagian, atas of the building exploded in a fiery hell. Before they fell lebih than five floors down, the air under each of them swirled, slowing their descent and gliding them over the ground. They flew to a clearing near the entrance of the building, and fell roughly to the ground, rolling across the uneven dirt and crashing into a nearby bush. As Zephyr and Jenna collected themselves, Sean and Cain gently moved the bodies of the girls and propped them up against a pokok before turning back to watch the building collapse.
"Hurry up Richi..." grimaced Jenna. "I swear to God, if anda die in there I'm going to murder anda in the afterlife." Sean glanced at his partner. "Death after death?" he asked. "Shut it." Jenna grumbled.
The glass doors of the building's entrance shattered as Richi kicked them open. He ran over to the awaiting group as the foundation finally gave, letting the building crumble to the ground. As he escaped the falling rubble, the teens stared at him, their eyes full of soalan about the thing in his arms. "...Huh?" Zephyr asked as he got near.
It was a young girl.
She lay unconscious in his arms, her face streaked with dust and dirt from the collapse. The clothes she wore were stained and grimy, as if she hadn't changed out of them in years, and her bright creamy hair was oily and uncared for. But something else was off.....
Out of breath, Richi gently laid her on the ground before collapsing, exhaustion creeping up his aching legs. He looked up at the four of them before saying anything. "Don't -huff- ask." They looked at her while he caught his breath, his eyes darting back and forth from her to the sight of his two Friends dead. His senses dulled at the constant replay of their deaths in his mind. He grew sleepy from fatigue.
"Richi!" Jenna yelled. He awoke from his trance, only to hear the sounds of something whirling through the air. He couldn't alih in time; two cords whipped around his body, leaving him tied up and unable to move. Within a few seconds, his team fell to the ground one sejak one, completely immobile. "Damn it...Where did these bolas come from?" Richi grumbled in annoyance.
"Hello there, heathen." mocked Cole. "Nice to see anda alive."
