This is a story about two X-Men: Iceman and Shadowcat. They must go on an adventure to save their fellow teammates but through this adventure, they learn more about themselves and each other.
This is their fourth chapter.
"Ahhh!" was all Shadowcat yelled as one of Multiple Man's clones hit her at the side before she had a chance to phase.
She fell down in the middle of 20 other Multiple Man Clones. She saw another kick coming her way and this time she phased through in time. Shadowcat did a handstand and starting spinning her legs in a circular motion in an impressively fast rate. Any clone that got near her got a swift kick to the face.
"Impressive," teased Multiple Man as he now made 30 clones.
"I don't know how much longer I can last..." thought Shadowcat before 30 clones started charging at her.
Shadowcat quickly jumped up and kicked a clone down and phased herself as a few punches came her way. She grabbed the nearest clone and threw it at five other clones that were near her, but another clone kicked her to the side as she was distracted. She started to pant, her heart was racing. Her hair was a mess from all the fighting, her leg had a small limp, and her left arm was in pain. She truly was starting to feel like a disaster.
"I can't give up now," she thought, "I'm an X-Men."
She got up slowly and got in her battling position. She saw a kick coming to her head but she ducked and she swung her foot in a circular motion, similar to how one breakdances. Another clone was running up to her and she punched him. But once again, as she was distracted, two clones grabbed her arms and was about to slam her into a wall but she phased through their grasp. She kicked one of them on the head and punched the other one at the same time.
Multiple Man cloned himself even more, now creating 50 clones.
"It just never ends," Kitty sighed. She could feel herself slipping. The amount of energy she had left was decreasing drastically. Her mind was telling her to keep going but her body was failing to respond more and more.
The 50 Multiple Man clones now started charging at her. She forced herself to get up and get ready to fight more. 10 clones jumped up and Kitty phased herself so the clones just passed her and hit the wall. She saw another clone coming to her in the corner of her eye and she did a swift kick to its side, making the clone fall. Yet, another clone appeared from behind Kitty and tried to punch her, but she managed to phase through again and elbowed the clone, hard in the stomach.
Kitty saw a clone to the side and was about to punch it when another clone was about to attack her to her other side. She also saw another clone in front of her and she could hear one coming from the back. She was being surrounded. She didn't know what else to do other than just stand there and phase her body, but it was taking a lot of her energy. Finally, she attempted to do a hard kick to the clones in front of her, but the clones to the back of her took the chance and gave her some hard punches and she flew back and got hit against the cabinet.
"I can't do this anymore," Kitty said. She tried to force her body to move but it just wouldn't budge. She was simply too exhausted.
"Can't do this anymore?" Multiple Man taunted, "What's wrong? Little kitty can't fight back?"
"Ugh," Kitty thought, "What am I going to do?" She slowly closed her eyes and shifted into unconsciousness.
"What do you mean you don't know what to do?" A voice said. Kitty found herself in an all white setting. She didn't know where she was but she could hear the voice. The voice … it sounded really familiar.
"Who's...who's there?" She screamed.
"It's just me, Kit," the voice said again, but this time Bobby appeared right in front of Kitty.
"Bobby?" Kitty said in disbelief, but her body felt warm at the sight of him. She really enjoyed seeing him there.
"Hey," Bobby continued in a sarcastic tone, "Looks like you're having trouble."
"No duh," Kitty sighed, recalling her fight with Multiple Man. "It's impossible for me to defeat him. He'll just make more clones."
"You can't give up," Bobby said, "You're too good for that." He stared at her with his blue eyes, they were deep and serious, but still warm and inviting like they normally were. Kitty stared into them and realized Bobby was right, she can't just give up.
"Thanks Bobby," she said. She went over and hugged Bobby and she received that same strange feeling she had before. But this time, she didn't mind it. She felt stronger as she hugged Bobby, she could feel the adrenaline moving through her veins. It made her feel more alive, more rejuvenated. She felt as if she could do anything.
All of a sudden, she opened her eyes and saw numerous clones of Multiple Man. The past fight suddenly rushed into her mind and she quickly recalled it all. "Can't give up," she thought, but she also thought of another idea. She phased her hand into the lowest drawer of the cabinet and took out 2 steel swords that were curved in the middle. The swords were a gift from Wolverine for her 16th birthday but she never thought she would actually use them in a battle.
With a new found sense of confidence and strength, she quickly charged at the clones were her twin swords. She quickly slashed, stabbed, and fought any clone that was in her sight and she was extremely accurate. In just a matter of minutes, all the clones disappeared.
Multiple Man was genuinely surprised at her sudden bolt of energy, but he simply cloned himself even more.
But this time, Kitty wasn't the least bit worried.
Iceman and Arclight were fighting in a setting that was almost completely covered in ice, since Iceman recently froze the whole hallway. The walls, floor, and ceiling were completely encased in ice and icicles can even be seen dangling from the ceiling.
Arclight raised his hand a purple sphere surrounded it, emitting energy. He smashed his fist against the wall and it started to tremble, causing the ice to crack and to fall off the ceiling on Iceman. He quickly created an ice shield around him, but Arclight smashed his fist against the ground, causing powerful, purple vibrations to break his ice shield.
Iceman outstretched his arm and shot an ice beam at Arclight, who dodged and smashed his fist again at the floor, causing more purple vibrations to spread across in a circular format on the floor. Iceman was caught off-guard and the vibrations caused him to slam against the wall. As Iceman was opening his eyes and refocusing, he saw three shining projectiles in the shape of spears coming right at him in his path of sight.
"Great," Bobby thought , "Harpoon's here, just when I thought Arclight was enough trouble." Bobby focused on the spears as he froze the water vapor in the air in front of them. Crystals started to form around the spears and soon the spears accumulated too much weight to travel in the air and gravity took over as the spear projectiles dropped to the ground.
Harpoon took out three more small spears from his pocket and using his mutant ability, he charged them and his spears was surrounded by a turquoise-blue field of energy. He threw them at Iceman while Arclight raised both of his hands and used his mutant ability to make a purple, circular field of energy to surround his hands. Arclight smashed his fist into the ground and power vibrations shook the ground. The vibrations were power enough to shake the ceiling and caused a nearby chandelier to fall to the ground.
Iceman focused his energy and created an ice slide to avoid the powerful vibrations but the spears hit his ice slide and it broke right beneath his fight. Iceman started to plummet to the ground but Arclight ran up to Iceman, jumped, and smashed his fist into Iceman's chest with a lot of force. His purple fist amplified the amount of power his punch did and also caused Iceman's body to feel shaken up and temporarily dysfunctional.
Iceman flew back from Arclight's punch so hard that the wall could not break his fall and broke, causing Iceman to take a hard landing in the next room. Harpoon came in and took out a six foot spear and jammed the spear into Iceman's chest. The impact left a massive hole in the center of Iceman's chest and caused his ice body to crack. Harpoon stabbed Iceman with his spear several more times until his body just turned into a pile of ice cubes.
"Um," Arclight said hesitantly to Harpoon. "I thought we were suppose to capture him alive."
"Doesn't matter," Harpoon snarled, "He's gone, we did our job. Let's go and inform Mystiq-"
"What's wrong now Harpoon?" Arclight said as he noticed Harpoon didn't finish his last sentence. He turned around to see Harpoon unconscious and frozen and Iceman standing over him.
Iceman had jumped from the ceiling while Harpoon wasn't paying attention and struck him with an ice club with tremendous force. Harpoon was rendered unconscious immediately.
"I thought you were dead!" yelled Arclight in disbelief.
"Nah," Iceman responded cooly, "Harpoon just destroyed an ice sculpture of myself that I made and I just hid on the ceiling. It's a shame though, that ice sculpture looked very real, didn't it?"
Arclight stared at the pile of ice that Harpoon has destroyed, thinking it was the real Iceman. "This kid may be more powerful and clever than we had originally thought," he thought. "No matter, I'll end this." His hands were once again encased in purple spheres that emit energy. He started creating an unstable dome of energy surrounding him. He expanded the dorm more and more, it resembles that of a nuclear explosion. The energy that made up the dome was extremely dangerous and would hurt anyone that came into contact with it.
Iceman quickly shot an ice beam at the dome but it had no affect. The dome just continued to expand and expand. "I can't let the dome touch me," Iceman thought. He didn't know how powerful that dome was but it did not look good and he can't let himself lose this battle. He shot another ice beam but it still had no affect. He shot another and another but as soon as the beam hit the dome, it just stopped and didn't even encase the dome with any ice.
He shot some sharp ice projectiles from his hands but they fell to pieces as soon as they hit the dome. Iceman started to freeze the water vapor into the shape of a heavy sphere and threw it at the dome, but that sphere broke into pieces as it came in contact with the dome as well. He tried to create more powerful ice beams but to no avail. The dome was starting to seem unstoppable.
"Think, Iceman, think," Bobby said to himself. "Come on, there must be something to stop it. Just think."
Bobby stood there, trying to think of a solution in little time. The dome was expanding more and more and there was only three feet left between him and the dome.
"Damn it!" Bobby yelled, "How am I suppose to stop this dome? Maybe I should just run." Bobby turned and began freezing the wall to make it easier to break and escape from.
"I thought you were an X-Men," a voice said from behind. Bobby turned and saw Kitty staring at him, hands on her hips.
"This is impossible. If I run, I at least have a chance to fight another day," Bobby said, his eyes showed defeat.
"You're an X-Men. The term "impossible" is not in our dictionary," Kitty said bluntly. Her eyes seemed to be flaming, filled with energy.
"You're right," Bobby replied, "But how am I suppose to defeat him and his dome?"
"Use your brain," Kitty stated, "That is, if you have one. Look at where the source of power of the dome is from. It's from his hands. If you can stop him from using his hands then you can stop the dome."
Bobby stared back at the dome and noticed that Kitty was right. The source of power did come from his hands.
"Wow, thanks Kitty," Bobby exclaimed, but when he looked back Kitty wasn't there anymore, as if she disappeared into thin air. "It was just a hallucination?" thought Bobby, but he didn't have enough time to worry about that yet. He had to stop the dome, which is now only a foot away from him.
He started to focus on Arclight's hands. He targeted his powers into only one thing, Arclight's hands. The molecules around Arclight's hands started to move slower and slower as Bobby used his power. Crystals started to form and soon Bobby had also slowed the molecules of the purple sphere around Arclight's hands as well. Bobby had froze Arclight's hands and prevented him from using his power. With one final ice beam, Bobby froze Arclight.
"Phew," Bobby said in relief, "That was close."
He could hear heavy fighting down in Kitty's room.
"Kitty!" Bobby exclaimed, he ran down to Kitty's room as fast as he could as his mind started to pray that Kitty was alright.
When he finally reached Kitty's room, he saw Kitty getting thrown back against a wall. Despite her recent comeback, she eventually succumbed due to the tremendous number of clones. There was literally at least 1,000 clones on the ground unconscious and at least 500 more perfectly conscious and ready to fight.
Bobby saw Kitty hurt and his eyes widened. "Bastard!" he yelled as he shot multiple ice beams all over the room, freezing every single clone and the real Multiple Man himself. He ran over to Kitty and carried her in his arms and his eyes filled with worry and sorrow as he feared that Kitty might be dead. Then, Kitty opened her eyes and the first thing she saw was Bobby's face. She smiled at the sight of it and noticed his worried eyes. Bobby was so grateful and happy that Kitty was alright that he automatically hugged Kitty as tightly as he could.
"I'm fine," Kitty stated, smiling, "You can let go of me. You're hugging too tightly."
"Sorry," Bobby said, giving an even bigger smile back.
Kitty looked around at all the frozen Multiple Mans. "Thanks," Kitty said, with more sadness in her voice. She was upset that Bobby could defeat Multiple Man as simply and quickly as in a matter of seconds while she was almost defeated by him. She was wondering if she really belonged as an X-Men.
Bobby responded as if he could read Kitty's mind, "Don't be so upset. Whoever attacked us planned every move and sent Multiple Man to attack you since he could tire you out. You could have easily defeated anyone else but whoever did this exploited your weakness. You're an X-Men, and you're good at being one."
Kitty smiled back and noticed that he's right. She did belong as an X-Men.
"Thanks Bobby, you always knew what to say," Kitty stated.
"You don't have to thank me. I'm just stating what's true," Bobby replied as he wrapped his arm around Kitty's shoulder, helping her walk.
"Now let's go and see if anyone else needs our help," Bobby continued and the two young X-Men walked out of the room. Both of them didn't tell each other about the hallucinations, dreams, or whatever they called them about each other, but they both knew how important they were to the other.
Together, they felt unstoppable.
As usual, please read and review. This is personally one of my favorite chapters ;)
There will also be a Battle!: Nightcrawler, Angel, and Cyclops as well as a Battle!: Rogue, Beast, and Wolverine. Remy and Colossus will also come up in the story. There might be a mini Battle! with Emma and Jean and perhaps Storm and maybe, just maybe, Forge.
As a side note, I'm also temporarily halting the series (not ending it though!). As you can tell since I haven't updated my story for about a month, school has been busy and friends have been fun so it's harder to write more and more. I will continue it, but at most I will probably update once a month during 3 day weekends and breaks. I probably won't update until Thanksgiving break, since one of my beta readers no longer have Internet access. I'll try my best to do so before then though :).
