"I think ya hit ta lil' guy to hard."
"Nah. I barley even touched him, Ty."
"Sure ya did. Ya gotta 'member thou yer a lot stronger than most people, Jack."
I tried to open my eyes but it was way too bright. I squeezed them shut again to get rid of all the blinding light.
"Nghh…" squeezing my eyes shut was a very bad idea. It brought back all the tremendous pain to the back of my head.
"Ya awake lil' guy?" I could feel the person who was talking to me very close. To close for comfort.
"Come onnnnn. Wake up ya stupid kid. We gotta take ya to ta boss, ya." With that said I felt two arms snake under my arms and lift me to my feet.
"Nghh…" then it hit me, I was somewhere with people I didn't know. "Where the FUCK am I!" I yelled pulling away from the man that had a grip on my.
"Whoa." He put his hands up in a defense position. "We ain't gonna hurt ya kid. We just gotta take ya to ta boss."
"Jack." The one names Jack turned toward the other male. "I think ya should just shut up. Ya keep talkin and sayin too much."
"Well I don't care what you think Ty."
After that they both started bickering about things, but at this moment I really didn't care what it was about. It could have been about killing me and I wouldn't have cared, only because I was trying to figure out how the hell I was going to get out of here.
Door. Door. Where the hell was a door when you needed one? OH! A window! I looked back to the two males, checking to make sure neither one of them were watching me. I was good, they were STILL bickering.
I turn and rand but didn't get very far before I ran into what felt like a wall. I thought the wall was a LOT farther away. Whatever it was thou it sent me to the floor with a loud THUD!
"Where do ya think yer goin'?"
I looked up to the voice but couldn't see anything because of the darkness and shadows looming around.
"BOSS!" I looked back and saw that the two men who had been arguing were standing ramrod straight, looking intently at a place in front of me in the darkness.
"Who is this?" I saw a hand come out of the darkness and point at me.
"Well…um..." both the men looked at each other and then me and then back into the shadows.
"Ya see…well…" Jack stuttered out, looking at Ty for help.
"Sorry about Jack boss. But this person was the one we caught trespassing on out turf. Thought the lil' guy was one of them from the other clans."
"And what were ya gonna do with him?"
"We were gonna bring him to ya." I almost missed what Jack said because it was so close to a whisper.
"What makes ya think he is from one of the other clans?"
"Well…um…we ain't sure really."
There was a very low growl from behind me, but as I was about to turn my head around a giant wolf was growling and snapping at the two men. It looked like the two men had just shit their pants with the looks they had upon their faces.
"We-we're sorry boss. Please f-forgive u-us…" they both stuttered out putting their hands up in a defensive position.
After their little 'begging' the wolf disappeared and was replaced with another male. I watched as he walked over to me and if looks could kill, well I would have been dead a million times over by now.
"Ya gonna get up or what?" I looked up at the hand that was outstretched in front of me. I nodded my head quickly. Grabbing his hand I heaved myself up to a standing position.
"I'll let ya in on a little secret," he looked over his shoulder at Ty and Jack before looking back at me, leaning down to reach my level. "I'm only those two bozo's boss. I ain't the real one."
I gaped at the man in shock. If he wasn't the real 'boss' then who the hell was?
"Here, I'll take ya to the real one. Just follow me." With that he started down a hallway.
I quickly moved so I could follow him. I followed him through tunnels that were confusing me, with all the twists and turns. I couldn't tell exactly what the tunnels looked like because the only lighting that was in them was small gothic lights.
I walked into a small room that wasn't much larger than the tunnels we had walked around in. There was an opening behind which led to the tunnels that we just came out of; and then there was a large black and red gothic door in front of me, well it wasn't directly in front of me but it was close enough.
The only things to adorn the room were two Goth like chairs, and four lights that matched the ones out in the tunnel with one placed on each wall.
I stood in the middle of the room, dumbfounded. I had no idea what I was supposed to do, but my unasked question was answered with the man telling me to stay put. So that's what I did, but only because this man had a very dark aura that scared me shit-less.
I watched as he walked toward the large gothic door. I took to noticing that there were no handles on the door. How the hell was someone supposed to get in there?
But that question yet again was answered when he put his hand against a spot on the wall.
The spot came to life, full of vivid colours and sounds. "Please state your name." the voice from the machine was fully of no emotion.
"Kyle 'KM' Morine." He spoke very monotone at the machine.
The door opened up to…blackness, but upon closer inspection what I thought was just black was another door, but this one was a single door and was black unlike the gothic red and black double doors I have seen in here.
"Alright. Come over here." Kyle called to me.
I walked over to him, which only took me 4 strides. Getting closer to the door thou I heard…yelps, snarls, and growls? I was completely confused. What the hell was going on in there? Was someone hurt?
From the corner of my eye I watched as his face contorted into pain as a very large growl emanated from the other side of the door along with a yelp.
"Shit. I think he just killed another one?"
"Another what?" I questioned turning toward Kyle.
I got no answer so I took the opportunity to actually take a look at him. His hair was black with two strips hanging down on the side and the rest cut really short. With the little lighting there was I couldn't get a good look at his eyes, but they seemed a brighter colour. His skin looked darker than mine in the light so I assumed he had tan to very tan skin.
My attention was taken by the defining yelp that was heard from the other side of the door.
"Damn. Follow me, your now gonna meet the boss." He said opening the door up.
As I stepped in the lighting drastically changed from almost dark to extremely bright. When my eyes had finally adjusted I saw what looked like an arena, but not like the ones I have seen on TV. The ground was complete dirt and the ceiling, well that was all rocks. I took a stab and guessed that it had originally been a cave.
I scanned the arena-type place looking for the source of the noise. The source, two giant wolves in the center, was not that hard to spot. It looked as if they were fighting, but then again they could not be.
Both wolves were very different, in size and looks. The smaller one had really light tan fur; a red and brown chunk of fur hanging over one of its large eyes, which were either a deep brown or black. On its shoulder it had medium blue tribal markings on it.
The large one had a dark, creamy tan colour for its fur. Blazing blonde hair fur hung down the middle of its face. It's eyes were a medium sea green colour. As far as I could see there were no markings on this one, but I did thou see a few shiny objects on its ears, but I could not confirm what they were from my distance.
"BOSS!" I jumped as Kyle shouted, cupping his hands around his mouth to make the sound louder. He probably wouldn't have even need to do that because his voiced rang through the arena and above all the noise the wolves were making.
The tan coloured one looked over to where we were standing and then it started running toward us. I tensed up as it got closer.
Damn! It's going to plow us over! Well that's what I was thinking as the wolf was running right at us.
It got to about 6 feet in front of us when it decided to actually stop. I watched as it skipped to a halt and then...transformed? I couldn't be sure but that's what it looked like it because out of the smoke that had meracuisly appeared, a male stepped out and came walking toward us.
He was magnificent. The creamy fur that was on the wolf was actually is luscious skin, with the blazing blonde as his hair. It was very dishelved, almost like bed head with only a few strands sitting in front of his face. His eyes were a beautiful bright green. They looked almost as if they were sparkling in the lighting. The shiny objects that I had seen earlier were actually piercings that were adorning his face and ears. There were three hoops in his left ear. Two of those hoops were at the top of his ear while the other one sat about midway on his ear. There was also a stud at the bottom of his ears that was connected to a lip piercing with a chain. He had a very athletic build to him that told me he took care of it very well.
"Kyle." his voice was deep but with some softness inside of it.
"Sorry to disturb ya boss but I have someone you should see?"
"Who and why?" his voice was demanding.
Kyle didn't even hesitate with his answer. "This one here." he pointed to me. "Reason: the two bozo's named Ty and Jack think they might be from one of the other clans. But I'm not sure. They could be right but then again they could be wrong like all the other times they have said that same line."
"Well there is only one way ta finding out. Ya know what I mean so prepare him." with that the man in front of us walked away and to the middle of the arena.
What the hell was going on here? And what exactly did I do?
"Ok boss." Kyle looked down at me. "Ya ready?"
"Ready for what?" I questioned, backing up a little.
"Ta fight, duh." Someone said with a snotty tone.
"WHAT! I-I don't e-even know h-how to f-fight." I managed to stutter out at these people.
"I'm not buyin' it, Kyle. I think the little man can fight." Another person spoke.
"CLEAR THE ARENA!" Kyle shouted from 4 feet in front of me.
I watched as everyone that was in there moved off to the side, and quickly too. The man that was known as the boss walked over toward where I was standing.
He bent down just a little so he was eye level with me. God, do his eyes look magnificent.
"Come one. All ya gotta do is fight me. But if ya kill me…well I bet ya can figure out what's gonna happen ta ya." With that, he turned on his heel and walked to the middle of the arena.
So I'm supposed to fight him, yet not kill him. Well that is completely easier said than done.
I felt someone grab my arm and I looked up to see that Kyle was practically pulling me out to the middle of the arena.
"Now all ya gotta do is beat him." Kyle said matter-of-factly.
"But how do I prove that I'm not part of the other clans as you say?"
"Ya just gotta fight." He spoke with an annoyed tone.
"But I don't know HOW to fight." I was ready to scream it at him to get it through his thick skull.
"Well ya better learn quickly." With that he walked away, back to the edge.
I turned to face the man in front of me, whose name was still a mystery to me. I watched as his form started to change. I could hear and see each bone breaking and then re-breaking itself. You could see each bone move with under the skin and realign into another position. He moved into a crouched position as more bones shifted. It was disturbing, yet interesting all in its own way. No matter how much I wanted to move away and scream at the scene in front of me, my body wasn't responding.
I couldn't tell now if he was watching me or glaring at me. But it looked as if he may have been…smiling? Or was it grinning? Whichever it was, it was starting to seriously creep me out.
I slowly started to back away from him. It was fight or flight, and well frankly, I chose flight.
He must have taken a notice to the growing distance between us because he started to close the gap. Slowly at first but then he was charging at me. I wanted to turn tail and run but then I wouldn't know how close he was to me, but I couldn't exactly walk backwards because I didn't know this place well enough to.
I could help you out, you know.
Oh no. You just crawl back into whatever crevice you came out of, Kai. I spoke to the other personality that was inside my head.
Fine. But you know if I take over you could win. It was very tempting but I had already made up my mind.
I'm sorry but no Kai. If I kill him, I looked to the wolf that was getting closer. I die so no thank you. I'd rather stay alive, because if I wanted to die so badly I would have stayed in that damn test tube.
Fine, but don't come asking me to save your ass when they are killing you.
I won't. I sneered at the other voice.
I focused back to reality just in time to see the wolf swipe a paw at my head sending me flying on to my already painful left side. The pain in my face was fierce, but the pain above my kneecap flared above all. It felt like my whole leg was on fire.
All I wanted to do was just lay there and for once, my body wanted the same thing. I was giving up entirely. I couldn't fight. There was no way of winning this, at all. Even using intelligence wouldn't work. I had about a 45% chance to stay alive.
You can win. Kai spoke.
And how do you propose that? I sneered. I just wished he would go away.
With me. He said matter-of-factly.
I told you before. No. You're just going to cause me more problems than need be. I thought he would stop talking but just a few seconds after he had stopped talking I could feel him trying to take over my body. He was stretching out to every body part. Trying to overrun my senses and my mind.
Stop it. There was no response to my command.
I said stop it Kai. Nothing yet again.
"Stop it." I whispered out loud. I couldn't let him take over. If he did I would most likely die.
I turned my head a little bit, just enough to be able to see without the dirt in my left eye. Some of the people on the sides held serious faces, or a curious face, though many were smiling. They must have known I was giving up.
Obviously I wasn't supposed to leave that facility.
But then is dawned on me. What if this was all just a test to judge if I should have my freedom or not?
I turned my head down into the ground. Pushing myself off the ground, I stood up but I was very unsteady. I leaned on my right leg, pulling any and all pressure off of my left leg. Kai was still there, trying his hardest to take over.
"Stop it now, Kai." I whispered a tab louder than before although it was still quiet enough that only I would be able to hear it. Kai was making me very agitated, and fast.
No. He started laughing like a maniac. The sounds of his laughter ringing throughout my head, bouncing off of my skull. It was pure insanity and torture.
I grabbed the sides of my head in a desperate attempt to shut up his laughing, but in turn it made him laugh even more.
Your attempts are hilarious and futile, all the same. I'm never going to stop, not until I take over.
"STOP!" I screamed still holding my head.
I looked up, hands still firmly planted on my head, at the wolf in front of me who was just standing there. Something flashed through his eyes, but my mind couldn't comprehend what it was.
Kai was finally retreating back into the darkest crevices that were in my mind. I let my arms fall to my sides and just dangle there as the drumming in my head receded to nothing, not even a whisper was in my head.
My knees felt like jell-o. They bucked, making me fall into the dirt on those oh-so very knees. This position wasn't any better for my very weak knees. I felt them give out. My body wobbled a bit before falling forward into the dirt which I had just come up from. My arms didn't move themselves from my side to ease the impact that would surely be there. The left side of my face buried itself into the ground, yet again.
I looked toward the people. The faces that had been laughing or smiling were now struck with confusion. I have no idea if it was to me or to the wolf, but whichever it may have been it looked greatly funny upon their hard faces. I gave a small laugh, more of a chuckle at the faces.
I took another look toward them and noticed that the one named Kyle and a female were running toward me. Or was it to the wolf? I was thoroughly confused on to who they were running toward. But either way, they both held worried expressions, especially the female.
The drumming that had dissipated had started itself up again. It wasn't a slow increase, no it was more like one minute it wasn't there and the next it was BAM! All of the suddenness of the drumming caused white spots to float within my vision, making it almost entirely impossible to see.
I moved my eyes just centimeters toward the top of my head, to where the wolf was. I didn't see any part of the wolf. Instead I saw bright green eyes before I swam, once again, into the darkness that lay before me.
A/N: I am extremely sorry this was so long…*sigh* it was 9 pages in Word, but I just couldn't find a good spot to end it. Well one that I was satisfied with.
