Disclaimer: I don't own Pet Force or any of the orig. characters. I do own my characters however, so don't steal 'em or I'll destroy you. Also, if you've never read Pet Force before I suggest you either read the series or read the 1st chapter of Pet Force #6 by Sora Kamiya because I'm not going to explain the whole series to you. This story may be very confusing if you don't. Anyway, this is my 1st Pet Force fic and I hope you like it.

I sat in a lone dusty ally and looked behind be to see if any of the Empress's soldiers had followed me. They hadn't thank the gods. Now I had time to rest, but I can't I can only remember how this horrible future got started.
~ Nine years ago~
It's been 9 years after Vetvix has overthrown Emperor Jon. I remember it like it was yesterday. It began when Vetvix found true power. Not that idiotic magic she used before, but real, raw powerful magic she obtained from a The Staff of Hermes which gave her tremendous power. She began to destroy everything she got her greedy hands on and what she didn't kill, she enslaved. I remember that even more an it's not a happy memory. My mate Kaleo Swiftpaw soon became one of them, her new slaves now that worked in her fields and mines, but that was later. At the time The Emperor had figured out what happened and summoned Pet Force to save us, I was there when he called them.
I was a simple adolescent then that lived in a tree just outside the palace. The Emperor always liked me he came out several times and gave me spare chicken and fish and although I didn't like humans all that much I enjoyed his company. It was then I got to see my idols appear before me: Pet Force. I remember seeing them for the first time watching shyly from behind a statue my green eyes wide with awe. I had always heard legends of the mighty Pet Force and now here they were: Odious with his amazing strength that forced me to look past his stupidity; Starleena with the siren song that could stun Cerberus himself, Compooky, the cybernetic genius; Abnermal with the power of ice; and finally him, Garzooka the brave powerful leader of Pet Force. I was hopeful again. It'll be okay now Pet Force is here, they'll set things right and everything will be okay I thought. But I was wrong, way wrong.
Pet Force was gone for quite a while, about two weeks actually. This mission was taking too long, usually Pet Force kicked Vetvix's butt in a couple of days or so. The Emperor was worried too, he stayed in his throne room a lot, just like when the original Pet Force disappeared. All the doors were locked except for one and that was the door to the balcony. I was getting really worried and decided to try and comfort him. He was sitting in his polyester throne watching the communication monitor carefully. I has jumped in from my tree into the palace and went to his majesty's side and gave a cheerful mew. He didn't respond. I tried again by leaping onto his lap and purring (although I didn't feel like purring at the moment) into his ear. Emperor Jon noticed me, but not much. He just held me close and stroked my back fur worriedly. My friend I wish I knew how to help you. You look so sad, I wan to see the old cheerful Emperor Jon again. He just help me close and I leaned into him, it was the only thing I could think of to help him. We stayed like that for weeks. Then, on November 17th we got the most horrible of news. That morning at around four AM the palace guards found a video disk and a note which read: I win. Give up you're all doomed.
The guard entered with the disk and gave it to the Emperor who cautiously took it and placed it in the player nervously. The Emperor, Sorcerer Binky, the Capitan of the guard, Gen. Turrok, and I were the first to see what happened. The image was blurry for a while and then a picture came into view: Pet Force, all in prison cells about to be executed. What happened to them still haunts me to this day. Odious was burned alive, Starleena was torn apart by strong sound waves that eventually broke her spine, Compooky was had a virus placed into him, and lastly poor Garzooka was torn apart and eaten alive by Vetvix's horrible mutant spiders. As for Abnermal, we saw him being taken to a guillotine, but the disk had run out of data before we saw what happened to him. I pray he died quickly, he was too young to die so soon. The last thing we saw was Vetvix sitting on a hovering chair with Gorbull, Vetvix's pet on her lap. Pie-Rat, K-niner, a tall powerful Lizard-like creature standing beside her. As Pet Force perished we heard them laughing at their suffering like some kind of crazed hyenas. The horrid laughter still continued as the screen began to static. I backed up from the screen shocked. No, it couldn't be, it just couldn't- Pet Force couldn't die, it just wasn't possible. But it was, right in front of me. The others couldn't believe it either. The General shook his head in disbelief, the Captain looked close to tears, they were both trying not to break down. Binky simply stood there with his jaw hanging open. And then for the first time in my life I saw the proud Emperor Jon cry. It was terrifying to see him like that. "Sh-shall I make a universal announce your highness?" asked General Turrok. The Emperor nodded and put his head in his hands. Everyone except his majesty, Sorcerer Binky and I left to tell the rest of the universe what had happened to the once mighty Pet Force.
I went back to my home where my dear lifemate Kaleo was waiting. He had also seen the disk and he turned when he saw me. I looked at him with sad emerald eyes I ran to Kaleo and thrust my face into his golden fur. "I know dearest. I know I miss them already too." "What will we do without them?" I asked him. "For now we can stay here and morn our lost friends and after that- After that we'll just have to pray and see what happens.
I shook from the terrible memories and struggles not to start crying, if I did that the soldiers would spot me and I'd be dead for sure. I climbed to the top of a tall barren tree that now served as my new den and try to get some sleep. But I can't for the memories still aren't over.
The main character will be introduced in chapter 2 and she's a cat by the way if you haven't figured it out yet. Please review and tell me what you think of this so far. If you like it, I'll post the next chapter soon. I'm planning on about 14 chapters or so. The main character will be introduced in chapter 2 and she's a cat if you haven't figured it out yet.
