AnimeGirl 144 A/N: Okay everyone. I'm back with a new chapter. I hoped you all enjoyed the last two chapters. Now we're getting into the fun stuff.
I'd like to apologize for being so late. I was distracted by writing Hetalia fanfics. School is just about to start for me as well, and I'm going to try to get a job, so my writings will be coming out less and less.
Notice: I will be placing this story on a hiatus until further notice.

Chapter Four: An Enemy Rears Her Head
"Sir, you wanted me to report when the subject is returning home," Gustavo said as he entered his boss's office.
His boss turned and gazed at him.
"I'm guessing she's home?" he asked.
"She's on her way there. Our agent reported that he saw her and some of her visitors leaving the hospital some time ago," Gustavo reported. "He managed to slip a tracker on her uncle's truck. From our readings, it seems they're almost hitting the ruins."
"Good. Tell our science division to release the experiment," the boss ordered.
"Of course sir," Gustavo said with a nod.
He turned on his heel and left, leaving his boss to himself. The man smirked and looked over the folder that continued to lie on his desk.
"Soon, we'll have what we need."
Alice sat between her aunt and uncle, holding Courage in her arms as she stared at the dashboard. They were leaving the hospital, a place she now hated to visit because it reminded her of her mother. Closing her eyes, she remembered what had happened early that morning, right before she was discharged, when Dexter appeared.
"Alice, I need to speak with you," the red haired scientist said as he stepped inside her room.
"Of course, what is it?" Alice responded as she looked at the boy genius.
He looked very concerned and worried, and so this terrified Alice. If he was worried, it must be bad.
"I ran some scans on your body, and found that you have a piece of Fuse within your body," Dexter explained.
"Wh-what?" she asked while her family and friends who had gathered were stunned into silence.
Dexter nodded and continued.
"It's no longer growing, and it doesn't seem to being killing off any more cells, but the cells it has killed are slowly affecting your body. It's acting like a slow poison and it will eventually... kill you," he finished reporting, not meeting her gaze as he finished.
Alice's eyes widened tenfold as she heard the words.
"Can't you save her or something?" Palmar questioned.
"Yeah! You have all those cool gadgets, maybe one of those things can save her!" Brent added, looking hopeful.
Dexter shook his head.
"I ran the possibilities, but the Fusion Matter wouldn't be affect by the laser. My technology isn't that advanced yet, and so I'm afraid there isn't much I can do," Dexter said.
"So... so I'm going to die?" Alice asked, looking scared.
Dexter nodded sorrowfully, still not managing to meet her gaze. Tears began to form in Alice's eyes and began to fall. She couldn't believe that she would die.
"Alice dear, we're home now," Muriel said, rousing her niece from her catatonic state.
Surprised by the interruption, she saw the farmhouse and quickly got out of the truck, happy to at least be home where she thought it was safe.
"Hey, what's the green streak?" Brent questioned as he stood in the bed of the truck.
"It's probably Buttercup," Palmar said with a shrug as he hopped out of the bed.
"No. There are no pink or blue streaks with it," Trent added as he got a better look at the object approaching them.
"So what is it?" Brent questioned.
Alice began to sense something on the approaching object before she felt it. It was an alien presence. Her eyes began to widen as fear and shock took over. This alien form with a green streak was a Fusion. A fusion somehow survived!
"Everyone, move!" she cried.
Before more could be said, the Fusion landed just feet from the boys. The landing had managed to kick up some dust that rolled away from the figure. Now that she was on solid ground, everyone could see that their guest was none other than Fusion Alice.
"H-how did she survive?" Alice questioned aloud, clutching onto Courage.
"We can't ask that now," Palmar said, taking out his weapon and aiming it at the Fusion. "Just kill it."
Palmar fired the first shot while Brent and Trent pulled out their weapons. Muriel and Eustace ran inside the house, though Eustace was heading for his shotgun. Alice placed Courage inside the house before returning to her friends, finding them shooting at a shield. Fusion Alice stood tall, unafraid of them. She sent her shield in their direction, pushing them back with enough force. Alice used this moment to fire and sent an energy blast at the Fusion. The Fusion didn't waste any time and raised another shield, defending herself.
How is she here? Alice thought to herself as she launched a crescent attack.
We cannot speculate on that at the moment, Arthena advised. We must focus on the battle at hand.
Nano Edd appeared beside Alice after sensing her distress.
"Don't worry Alice. We're here to help," he said before facing his enemy. "Sugar Rush!"
A web appeared around Fusion Alice before disappearing. Fusion Alice glared at her enemy as she sent out another attack. Alice flew into the sky, dodging the blow but watching it take out a corner of her family's home. Wincing, Alice sent a blast at the shield, hoping to break it with enough power.
While she was doing this, the boys continued to fire at the Fusion. They were hidden behind the truck, using it as cover. The shield broke under the pressure of the attacks, but it didn't mean Fusion Alice was powerless. Almost immediately, she shot up into the sky; the snare had held her long enough. She appeared in front of Alice, and without any hesitance, punched her across the face. The attack was strong enough to send her falling to the ground and upon impact, she made a tiny dent in the Earth's surface. The boys immediately provided cover fire in hopes to get the Fusion's attention on them and away from Alice.
A shot from a gun had gained Fusion Alice's attention as the bullet ripped through her arm. Snarling loudly so they could hear, she turned and regarded the farmer who was aiming at her. A glare was set upon his face as he moved away from the porch he had been standing on.
"Get away from my niece ya Fusion scum!" Eustace ordered, firing his weapon again.
Fusion Alice was able to dodge the shot and raise a hand at him. She sent an energy ball at him. Eustace wasn't as fast as the children were when it came to dodging. He tried to move out of the way, but still received the blast that sent him into his truck. He fell to the ground and didn't move.
"Uncle Eustace!" Alice cried.
Her uncle didn't respond, nor did he move. Gasping as she began to fear the worse, Alice suddenly grew fearful. She didn't want to lose another family member, not to another Fusion. Said Fusion observed the damage she had done before turning and heading through the sky. Noticing the action, Alice looked at her enemy in horror. She sent an attack at her, hoping it would do something, but the attack missed, and Fusion Alice got away. She turned her attention back to her uncle and ran to his side. Numbly, she could hear one of the boys order for 911 to be dialed.
He-he'll be okay. Right? He'll be alright? Alice thought to herself.
"Sir?" Gustavo asked as he entered the office.
"Our trackers indicate that Fusion Alice is moving away from Nowhere. Our communication lines indicate that 911 was called," Gustavo reported. "It seems the farmer had been injured, but not Alice. Should we do something with the Fusion?"
"No," his boss responded.
"This Fusion knows what it's doing," his boss responded. "For now, we let the Fusion do the dirty work. It will all work out in the end."
"Very well sir."
"Will my uncle be alright?" Alice asked Dr. Ghastly.
The family and friends had followed the ambulance after Eustace was rushed to the hospital. Dr. Ghastly had been assigned to them since she had already worked with Alice. The doctor sighed.
"He's been put into a coma," the doctor answered, not wanting to reveal such terrible news.
Alice and Muriel both gasped while the three boys stayed silent. Courage, though he was always scared of Eustace, still felt some pity and concern for the farmer.
"But will Eustace be alright?" Muriel asked, finding her voice again.
"It's hard to say at this point. We have him on life support, and all we can do is wait," Dr. Ghastly responded. "You need to be careful Alice; we don't know if fighting will cause the Matter to spread."
Alice nodded, still looking shaken.
"We don't have time to be careful," Palmar spoke up. "My best bet is, Fusion Alice's going to cause a war to avenge her fallen master."
"We better warn Dexter about this then!" Brent suggested.
"He already knows," Trent answered.
"How do you know?" Brent questioned.
Trent motioned for his brother to follow him. He was guiding them in the direction of the waiting lounge on their floor. As they approached, they could hear the sounds of the TV, which seemed to be on a News Report. Once close enough to it, they stood around it and watched a video from a citizen who managed to catch Fusions attacking City Point on his camera. All of them watched in shock.
"So it's already begun," Palmar commented.
After many tries to get an ending, this is what is has become. As I said, I won't get to work on the next chapter just yet. I have a few stories I want to get out before returning my focus on here.
I hope you all enjoyed this chapter though!
