I will be adding at least 1 new chapter a week, depending on free time, maybe more.
Silent, Alert, and ready to kill. The Guardian who had managed to find Oryx was determined to end him, even though Ikora and Eris didn't believe him. There it is, he thought as he reached the open doors of Oryx's chamber. Silently, and ever so stealthily he crept out from behind his cover and lined up the scope on his sniper with Oryx's head. Noiselessly the guardian waited for Oryx's to turn around and face in his direction. He waited and waited until finally, Oryx turned around, and the guardian fired a single shot. There was a loud boom from the sniper and a strange earsplitting Crack, and the bullet struck Oryx, or would have, if Oryx was still there. Confused, the Guardian looked around trying to figure out where Oryx had gone. The Guardian stood up, and was lifted into the air and thrown into the center of Oryx's chamber.
"YOU DARE ATTACK ME ALONE, GUARDIAN!" Oryx roared, "I AM ORYX, THE TAKEN KING, AND YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD STAND A CHANCE AGAINST ME?!
" Well, yeah, I guess." The Guardian responded as he picked himself up off the ground and brushed the dirt from his Warlock robes. "Dude, look what you did, my Exotic Robes are all filthy now."
"Shut up and fight Guardian." Oryx snarled Menacingly.
"My name is Zephron or Zeph, and you're a prick." Zephron responded before jumping up and firing a Nova bomb at Oryx. Oryx responded with a roar and batted the nova bomb away with his sword before summoning a hoard of Taken.
On and on the fight went, Zeph sustained hit after hit from Taken Thralls, Acolytes, Vex, Knights, and Cabal, Until finally, he could take no more and fell to his knees in front of Oryx. A Taken Knight moved to finish him but Oryx waved him back.
"I yield, please spare me." Zeph begged as Oryx began laughing. "Hurry up and get us outta here." Zeph quietly hissed to his Ghost.
"I can't, I don't even know where we are." His Ghost whispered back.
"A Guardian, at my feet, begging for his life. I expected better from you." Oryx snarled gleefully, "And now, I will have a Guardian of my own." Oryx spoke a short strange incantation before waving his sword sword over Zeph. Immediately, Zeph felt as if he were being crushed from all sides and watched, helpless, as darkness swirled about him and his Ghost, until the darkness became absolute and he knew no more.
