The Suffering: Love v.s Darkness
Chapter 5: Escape
The village was engulfed in flames. Many buildings, including the small store, had been burnt to the ground. "This is great Otto! We're almost to the docks," Kano said. Otto could tell he was eager to get to safety. "Yeah, but first lets look for survivers," he said. The two split up. The smoke was so thick they could barely see. Bodies of offricers and their families layed everywhere. Otto was about to call of the search, when he heard a scream. He saw a hispanic woman and two little girls being chased by a bladed creature. Otto's shotgun was out of ammo. He was about to throw the last molotov he had, but he didn't want to take the risk of killing the woman and her daughters.
Otto was running out of time. The creature was getting closer to the woman and her daughters, Kano was nowhere to be found and he was out of ammo. He had one last option. He ran in front of the creature and punched it in the gut. No use. The creature slashed at him, but he was able to dodge it. The creature tried again. This time Otto grabbed its arm and stabbed its blade into its chest. It ran around screeching in pain and accidentally ran into the fire. Otto then turned to the woman. She was shaking violently. "Please don't hurt us," she pleaded.
"I'm here to help," Otto told her.
"Oh...I'm sorry. My name is Countenswala Hernandez,".
"Otto, but enough talk we must get going,".
Kano then ran into the area. "What I miss," he asked. Otto just walked on. Countenswala, her daughters and Kano followed. As they reached the path to the docks, Countenswala stopped. "I just remembered...my husband. He might be still alive and come to look for us," she explained.
"Leave him a note, telling him that you're ok. We'll meet you at the docks," said Otto.
She did exactly that. Kano and Otto continued to the docks. When they arrived there were two little girls in front of the gate. "Do you love her, or just her body," asked one of them. They seemed to be talking to Otto. "Well why don't you play with us," asked the other. Suddenly there was a flash and the two girls were engulfed in flames. Otto had to dodge them since he had no weapon. Kano rapidly shot at them, but kept missing. "Oh forget this," he said. He threw his gun on the ground and jerked his head foward. A red laser beam shot out of his metal eye and sliced the two girls in half. Otto was dumbfounded. "Bonzer ain't it," Kano said. Otto said nothing. They climbed over the gate since it was locked. Luckly for them there was one motor boat left and it was all fueled up and ready to go. Kano started it up while Otto waited for Countenswala and her daughters. Once everyone was on, it was time to go.
Otto and Kano did it. They survived dangerous and ugly monstrosities and escaped jail. The nightmare was over...or so they thought. As they got further out to sea, the engine started to spudder and then eventually die. "Thats wierd. The gas tank is full," said Kano. Then everyone froze as a giant long noise sounded. It was coming from the water. Otto, who was scared to an inch of his life, kept trying to start the engine. "Is the engine going to work...or...holy shit," said Kano. Otto turned around to see what he was looking at. He wished he didn't. A giant monster stood in the water looking down at their tiny boat. The monster had three skull heads, spikes on its back, and four arms. Its body seemed to be made of wood, with nails sticking out of it. "Everyone...hang on," said Otto. He gave the engine crank pull a big pull and it came to life. Kano slammed the gas pedal and the boat sped away. The giant roared and chased after them. Countenswala held her daughters tight. Otto was looking for a weapon. "Come on. I thought officers were armed on boats," he said. Then he noticed a big case. He opened it and inside was a missle launcher. "Now thats what I'm talking about,".
Otto loaded the missle launcher and aimed at the giant. The giant saw the weapon and slammed its fists into the water to create a giant wave. "Kano we need to go faster," Otto commanded. Kano did so and out ran the wave. It barely hit the boat. Now Otto had a perfect shot. One shot and if he missed, it would be the end of them. He aimed at the middle head and shot. The missle wizzed off towards the monster. Before it could dive back under water, the missle destroyed the middle head. The giant screamed out in pain and fell back into the watery depths.
Otto, Kano Countenswala and her daughters all cheered in happiness. Finally it was over. They were all safe. The only bad news was that the blast from the impact caused the engine to die again. "Well we did it, but I guess we're stuck," said Otto.
"Oh no you're not,".
Otto looked to his left. It was the coast guard. "Hop on,". They got on the boat and started to drive to the mainland. The officer was staring at Otto. "Hey you're that Otto guy. I got some good news for ya. The Maryland PD caught the real criminal who shot all those civilians. You're free to go when we get to the mainland," he explained. Otto couldn't believe it. His luck was changing. "Congrats mate. So what are ya gonna do when ya get home," asked Kano. Otto thought about it for a second and simply said "See Brittany".
