p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;"CRACK! This was followed by an earth shattering boom. Pins and needles descended on the ground, washing away anything that lay in its vicinity. All was dark except for the occasional streaks of light that illuminated what seemed to be a battlefield. White monsters, some with steel masks, some with beaks and some in full grey armour each having sharp sets of teeth, marchedspan style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanwith a clamour, causing all kinds of chaos. They burnt buildings and rammed their weapons through people, even proceeding to devour a few. Some humans did their best to fight back with the only weapons they could find - sticks, knives and any other sharp object on the ground, but to no avail. The white-grey monsters continued their massacre without so muc scratch on them./span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;""We're doomed!" cried one. "There's no way we can defeat them!" /span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;""Let's run away and hide! That's the only thing we can do," cried another. span style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanAnd so run they did. However, one of them tripped and fell. By the time he got up, one of the creatures was already upon him. " N-No! I don't want to die!" he screamed. "Someone help me!" The axe wielding monster before him poised it's weapon to deal a fatal blow. The man covered his face, trembling in his last few moments. Then there was only a carpet of blood around where he sat./span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;"The man slowly opened his eyes and was amazed to find himself still alive. He looked up to see that the monster was gone. In fact it hadn't disappeared but lay cleaved in half a few feet away from him. "Who killed this?" he asked to the empty air. "Is there something at last that can kill these things?" Just then a flash of pink caught his eye./span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;"A beautiful girl stood a few feet away fighting the monsters. Her waist length hair swayed as she swung her large sword. She adorned a silver armour that covered her back and chest, her stomach was a little exposed and a heavy gauntlet covered her entire left arm. A lighter glove like protection covered her right one. A brown tool belt was tied around her short red skirt. All in all she looked like a stunning warrior. That is until he saw the crazed, gleeful look in her dark eyes as she tore down creature after creature. Somethingspan style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanabout that face scared him. So, rooted to the spot was he that he did not notice a spear wielding creature behind him. He sensed it's presence just before it pierced him. Luckily, he rolled on to the side in the nick of time. The monster was about to strike him again when a silver axe cleaved it in half vertically. The man trembled as blood spluttered over him and a young girl in stood in its place. She had a black off shoulder shirt with dark armour over it, white shorts and reddish black leggings in ink and gold coloured spiked boots. Her steel blue eyes showed no emotion whatsoever and his maroon coloured hair spilled on her shoulders. span style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanWithout so much as another glance at him, the girl began massacring monsters with the same gleeful look as the other girl. /span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;"span style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanThe man could only gape as a stream of warriors with young-blood, rushed into the bloody field each battling the foul white creatures. The very same creatures that had destroyed towns and cities. Yet, these young warriors were ripping them apart with weapons the likes of which he had never seen before./span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;""You should get out of here while you can," said a baritone voice. It was a young man, hardly 18, in a white and blue commander's suit. He held out his hand help steady the older man. "This place is far too dangerous for you. Get out of here while you can and head for the evacuation shelter. It's 30 metres ahead from here. Hurry!"/span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;"The older man nodded and fled. The image of the crazy field had been burnt into his head. When he next turned back, he saw more people in the white and blue uniform, about 7 to 9 of them, shouting commands at the teenagers. The man quickly made his way into the shelter where saw many frightened and injured people huddled together. Some children were crying at having lost their parent/s. /span/p
p class="MsoNormal"span style="font-size: 16.0pt; line-height: 115%;""This is Ragnarok," said a delirious old man from the back of the crowd. "There is no way we can stop these things, even with those children. Those demons are sure to finish us. There is no hope left in this world!" span style="mso-spacerun: yes;" /spanThe entire room tensed at his words and the man could see desolation and helpless reflected in each of the eyes. This gave him an idea. He headed to the second floor and rummaged through the tools in there selecting a few. Soon, he began working on the mechanisms and machines stored away in another room. Hours and days went by until he was finally satisfied by the computer like machine. He pushed the button and prayed with all his might. "Please make it on time!"
