5/10: This is not a new chapter. Check profile for details. Still proofreading though. Me and my long stories (sighs).
He'd been uneasy for the past few weeks. He may have been a warrior of silence and shadows, but this just wasn't right. Never had the wilderness been so quiet. Only isolated, desolate places had no sound. But this was a lush forest he was in. The air should be filled with sounds. Yet it wasn't. Not even the insects were out bothering them.
The sound coming from the rushing water beneath his feet was the only one he heard whenever there was no wind to rustle the trees. He was at least relieved that the fish hadn't gone into hiding as well. He watched their movements carefully, waiting for the opportune moment to throw the 8 sharpened sticks in his hands. This wouldn't be much of a challenge; he had plenty of practice catching such things in Demon World. Only difference now was that he didn't have to worry about some large predator leaping out at him from the depths. No, the water here was shallow.
When eight fish unknowingly swam into the right positions he let his weapons loose, impaling all eight and nailing them to the stream's bed. With a deep sigh of relief, he'd been hovering there for hours, he reached in the water and pulled the eight spears out, each with an impaled fish twisting its body this way and that in a vain attempt to get free. He flew back to the bank and started walking back to his home, or at least the place he'd been living in for nearly a year.
Along the way he pulled each fish from its spear and impaled it on one so that all eight shared the same one. He kept that one over his shoulder while the other seven were carried under his other arm. They would make a good enough meal when combined to the other foods gathered in his home. The food had to be eaten and preserved smartly now that the deer and other large game seemed to have disappeared.
He finally arrived at his destination, a cave at the side of a large rock formation. The orange light he could see from his position was a welcomed sight. He was hoping it'd be ready by the time he got back. His stomach had been quiet up until now, but his stop to admire his home had been the last straw. Its grumble reminded him of how hungry he was, so he continued towards his destination.
Upon entering the cave, his eyes fell on the lively fire in the center of the room, illuminating and providing some welcomed warmth. Then they focused one the she-demon tossing another log into it.
He walked up towards her, setting the seven spears down as he went. "I was hoping you'd be up before I got back."
She jumped slightly, having not noticed him yet, and spun around, pointing a dagger at him. Realizing who he was, she relaxed. "I told you not to do that Azure."
Azure smirked slightly. "My apologies Kilana. I forgot how quiet I am."
The shake of her head followed by an exasperated sigh showed him that she forgave him. With this knowledge, he kneeled at her side and stuck the impaled fish into the ground around the fire. With that accomplished he sat back, taking a deep breath.
"Is there something on your mind?" Kilana inquired.
For a few minutes he didn't reply. He simply sat there and stared at the fire. "Any day now. They'll be here any day now."
The she demon fidgeted uncomfortable. "What will happen if they find you?"
"Execution most likely. Though I'm sure they'll torture me for a long time before then. That's how traitors are punished," he replied, not a waver in his voice.
Frowning, she rested her head against his shoulder and he responded by wrapping an arm around her.
"Don't worry Kilana, I'm ready for whatever they send our way," he said reassuringly, kissing her forehead. After saying that he looked at his hand, the same hand that will never hold another sword properly again. Fortunately, he'd been a master at hand-to-hand combat before he took up the sword. It had been a rather trivial matter for him to go back to that fighting style over that past year. He was confident he could take on most things Chaos Kai sent. But he also knew that he was no match for Talon and Claw.
Together, he and Kilana had traveled far from any human civilization, seeking a peaceful place where they could settle down. Those plans had been dashed very quickly when a blood red spot appeared in the night sky. Azure had served Chaos Kai long enough to recognize that bone-chilling feeling that the evil Kai's aura gave off. Since then, the two have trained long and hard in preparation for the invasion.
"What about the others?" Kilana asked.
Again, Azure didn't have an immediate answer. He'd been debating whether or not the two of them should join Falcon and the others when the invasion began. No doubt Falcon knew he was still alive, having spared him in their final duel. Azure still wasn't sure why the Saiyan had done that. Did Falcon want him to fight beside them? If he had, why had he crippled him in such a way as to make his greatest skills useless? Whatever the reason, Azure knew he and Kilana might indeed have to join them.
So his reply covered all possibilities. "It'll depend on our situation."
It wasn't exactly the answer Kilana had been looking for but it did give her the gist of the plan. If they were in trouble they would go to them. But if they could hold their own, contact should be avoided. Still, not helping them at all left them in another dangerous situation. "If they lose, what will become of us?"
"We'll last as long as we can. That's all we can hope for," he answered.
Sometimes she wondered why she bothered asking. His answers would always be simple and obvious.
Having noticed the slight pout on her face he smirked and let out a chuckle, causing her to blush slightly in embarrassment. He drew his face down and quickly kissed her lips. "I promise no harm will come to you Kilana."
With that, he pulled back to pull the now cooked fish away from the fire. "We'll discuss this further after we eat."
"Man, you can see for miles from up here," Goku observed, surveying the land around him.
"All the more reason for us to put it to good use," Rhuzeb replied, looking at the large structure they stood before.
Vegeta snorted. "That old fart actually did something useful for us."
"Watch it Vegeta. That's my father you're talking about," Bulma warned, stepping up beside her husband.
"So what's the story behind this place?" asked Goku.
Bulma crossed her arms. "When the Red Ribbon Army was at its zenith my father saw them as a huge threat to us. Both of our companies competed in the Capsule industry. Assassinating the competition was something the RRA was known for. So my father built this fortress out here as a place for his family to go should the need arise. It also makes a swell summer retreat."
"He was wise to chose this place," said Rhuzeb.
The fortress was a rather small castle located on top of a huge lone mountain standing rising from the middle of a very large valley. It was designed to survive a nuclear explosion and the numerous security guns and other defenses made attacking it a risk for any Earth army. Of course in this situation, those would simply act as back up for those that would fight outside. And inside was a huge network of secret rooms and passages they could use to escape.
Realizing that West City would be hit hardest, they had chosen this place for a fallback base from which to continue the fight. As long as it stood and had a healthy number of defenders Chaos Kai could not declare victory. Add to it, the large barrier Supreme Kai had erected around it to prevent someone like Talon from simply blowing it up from afar. The only way to take the castle would be to punch through the barrier and attack the walls directly, which would mean getting passed the three warriors that would be guarding the outside.
"It sure is quiet without all the servants. It's kind of creepy," Bulma giggled.
"Get used to it quickly. This may be our home for a long time," Vegeta warned. He noticed her shiver slightly as the wind picked up. This being a tropical area meant it was usually warm but the occasional cold drafts would hit the mountain. Swallowing his pride for the time being, he removed his own coat and placed it on her shoulders.
She smiled. "Thanks Vegeta."
"Whatever," he grunted, turning toward the valley.
Rhuzeb didn't really mind the cold, though he certainly missed the warmth of his mate he'd been enjoying less than an hour ago. But he had to take one bathroom break and when he came back those bunnies had taken his spot next to her. So he got dressed and left, running into Goku, Vegeta, Chichi, and Bulma in the kitchen. From there, four of them had left to inspect this place as a possible last stand.
"Do you think the other are up yet?" Bulma asked.
"Chichi should be done with breakfast soon, especially if Videl has gotten up recently. No doubt the smell will wake them," Rhuzeb replied.
"Well then let's head back. I'm so hungry." The growl from Goku's stomach emphasized his point.
Vegeta shook his head. "You're hopeless."
With that, they all grabbed onto Goku and we transported back to Capsule Corp.
As usual, he hadn't slept a wink the previous night. There was good reason not to up till about 3 in the morning but afterward he was content to being his princess's pillow for the rest of the night. She hadn't moved from that spot since, her head still resting on his chest and her arms wrapped around his torso for support. It never ceased to surprise him how much he'd lose himself thanks to her. And she knew it to, doing everything in her power to draw him in and keep him there.
Though there was a little discomfort caused by the stickiness of their skin at the moment. He shifted slightly to a more comfortable spot, waking his mate in the process.
With a groan, she opened her eyes, thankful that Falcon had closed his blinds thus preventing the sun from shinning down on her face.
"Good morning," her knight greeted.
She smiled and tilted her head up to look at him. "I never get tired of this sight." She then pulled herself up slightly to share a long kiss with him.
After separating, she relaxed against him. "Why's it smell like that chocolate shop I used to visit when I was a kid?"
"It was your idea," Falcon answered.
The look on her face told him she'd forgotten for them moment. No surprise there considering most of the night was still a blur for him as well. "Look on the floor."
Tilting her head in a way that made her almost too cute for him to resists, she sat up, straddling him, and looked around. The dozen of empty bottles that once contained chocolate syrup quickly reminded her of the previous night's events. She giggled. "Well that explains the smell. And why we're so sticky."
He raised an eyebrow, causing another giggle to escape her lips.
"Looks like I missed a spot," she said, coming down and licking off a spot of chocolate syrup she noticed on his neck.
He suppressed the growl that almost escaped his lips. She had to be doing this to him on purpose. There was no way she was unaware of the effect such simple actions had on him.
Feeling something against the inside of her thigh she smiled. "Sorry Falcon, but I should be getting up. Pan wants me in the GR in two hours." She then rolled off him and stood up, not doing a thing to cover herself.
He quickly looked away when she started stretching, visualizing the victorious smirk on her face that no doubt spread across her pretty face. He was surprised to feel a tug on his hand. "What are you doing?"
"We need to take a shower silly," Bra replied, tugging on is hand again.
"We?" he inquired.
"To get those hard-to-reach areas," she answered all too innocently.
He frowned, not really impressed or comfortable with her advances. Hadn't she tortured him enough already? "Can't you take one on your own?"
"Okay then. Maybe I'll skip the shower. Then you can explain to daddy why we're out of chocolate syrup."
He was out of bed and carrying her towards the bathroom in less than a second, causing a squeal to escape her lips.
"You could have warned me," she pouted, wrapping her arms around his neck.
"You wanted this didn't you?" he countered.
She smiled. "Yep."
He sighed and shook his head before carrying her into the bathroom and closing the door behind them. No point in arguing with her. He didn't have the time or patience to defend against Vegeta's wrath. Plus, Bra had hidden a pair of handcuffs somewhere that would no doubt lead to an angry Super Saiyan 4 prince.
As Jay slowly awake she became aware of the lack of weight on Rhuzeb's side of the bed. She slightly remembered him getting out of bed not to long ago but had fallen back asleep before he returned. From the looks of things he hadn't. And she realized the answer was lying right beside her.
"I thought I told you not to take Rhuzeb's spot," she sighed, looking at the bunnies.
Ely looked back at her in the most innocent way a bunny like her could. And her kits quickly followed suit with the exception of Rhuzeb Jr. who was sulking due to the absence of his grandpa's comfy head.
Shaking her head and smiling slightly, Jay sat up. "Just try not to do this again okay?"
It almost looked as though Ely winked back at her.
The sound of the doorknob turning brought her attention to the door.
"You're awake," Rhuzeb observed as he walked into the room.
"Where were you Rhuzeb? I was worried for a second there."
He sat on the bed next to her, where Rhuzeb Jr. eagerly jumped right into the tangles of the Saiyan's hair. Jay giggled at the sight.
Once the bunny was comfortable, Rhuzeb looked at Jay. "I'm sorry. I had to inspect something."
"Oh, well that's alright then. What time is it?"
Rhuzeb checked the clock. "Around 8 o'clock. Breakfast is almost ready."
At hearing the mention of food, Jay hopped out of bed and headed for her dresser to get…well…dressed.
((Later that day))
Ebony had stepped outside onto the balcony for some peace and quiet. If there was one thing she'd learned about Saiyans, it was that there was no such thing as peace and quiet when a group of them is in one room. She couldn't believe how great the view was. It certainly was a stark contrast to the dark world she'd come from.
Now that she thought about it, she hadn't really missed Demon World. Sure she had friends there that were no doubt worried about her, not to mention a rather over-protective Rebel leader for a father but everything about this world was better. Here she could be whom she wanted to, as long as she wore her cloaking device so that she appeared human. In Demon World, he role would have been to fight until her father died. Then she'd probably help with the command and find a mate so as to continue the bloodline should something happen to her.
Not so here. If she survived the war she could travel to the far and exotic lands she'd been unable to explore at the moment. No fighting, no constant training, no pressures of leadership, just her moving as freely as the wind. And she had friends here, friends she could count on whenever she needed them.
Speaking of friends…
"Oh, I didn't know you were out here."
She looked behind her and saw Goten standing at the doorway. "What are you doing out here?"
He shrugged. "It got a little too hectic in there. Vegeta got mom mad again and she's on a rampage. I slipped out before she spotted me."
Ebony sweatdropped. "I've never seen such a violent woman in my life."
He flashed the son grin before walking up to her right and leaning against the railing she was sitting on. "Sure mom can be a little rough sometimes, but she's still the best mom ever. I guess she has to be tough with the three of us to keep in line not to mention a granddaughter. And her cooking just can't be beat. She can be nice when she wants to."
"Sounds like a pretty good life. Besides the frying pan of course," Ebony added.
Goten chuckled. "You kind of get used to it after the first hundred or so hits but throbbing never seems to stop."
"I don't even know who my mother was," Ebony said more to herself than Goten.
"What do you mean?" he asked.
"My father had and still has many concubines. I was just the first born of his favorite. And afterwards my mother simply faded into memory. I was raised by my father's other wives along with my many brothers and sisters. He doesn't talk about her much. I don't think he even remembers her name."
"That must be rough," Goten stated with a nod.
She nodded. "Sometimes. But most of the time I had more to worry about than jus the identity of my mother. In Demon World, you live for the moment and try to plan the future to your advantage. There's not much time in between to reminisce or think about such things. The past is the past, simple as that."
"Have you ever asked your dad about it?"
This time she shook her head. "I tried a few times, but he always changed the subject on me. I guess he doesn't want his eldest thinking her mother means to him."
"I don't think it's that drastic," he reassured her, placing a hand on her shoulder.
She was at first surprised by the contact but didn't brush him off. It was a good feeling to know someone was worried about her. "Don't worry about it Goten. It's not that important to me anymore. Especially with that thing."
Goten followed the quick tilt of her head to the now moon-sized red dot in the sky. He never ceased to get chills from the sight of that thing.
"Do you think we can make it through this?" she asked.
He grinned again. "Of course. We've faced tougher odds before."
"I doubt that. Nothing can be tougher than Chaos Kai. He's the one that brought corruption to the universe in the first place. Literally, the source of all evil," she retorted.
"And my dad is a pure-hearted as they come. Vegeta's as stubborn as they come. Falcon's as devoted as they come. Rhuzeb's as focused as they come. Broly…well…he's Broly…"
"So what are you going to do when this is all over?" asked Goten.
She shrugged. "Probably just become a wanderer. It's tough for me to stay in one spot for too long, Hell, ever since I was 12 I haven't stayed in one location for more than a week or two."
"Won't you get lonely?"
"Perhaps. Maybe I can find a pet along the way, or make some friends that'll accept me even though I'm a demon," she replied.
"You already have friends like that."
She looked at him again. "I know. I'm sorry I put it that way. I meant…"
"Don't sweat it," Goten interrupted. "Don't worry, I'm sure there are others out there that'll accept you like we have."
"I hope you're right."
"And if you need the company that badly, you can always stop by my place."
"Are you sure about that? Your mother wouldn't mind."
"Uh," he scratched his head awkwardly. "It'll probably take some adjusting to on her part but she'll get used to it. And if I have to, I'll move out and get my own place."
She raised an eyebrow. "You'd move out just to give me a place to stay every now and then."
"Sure," he replied, as if clueless to the blush no staining her checks.
"You're welcome," he said, flashing another grin.
That grin was starting to grow on her.
((Elsewhere in Capsule Corp.))
"I swear!!! I can't turn my back on you for one second without you trying to pull some perverted stunt!!!" the daughter of 18 and Krillen yelled, trying to put as much distance between herself and Broly as possible.
"Aw don't be like that babe. I only do it because I care," Broly said, trying to sound sincere.
"Yeah you care. About this," she retorted, slapping her butt.
"Well…yeah but there are other…"
She glared at him, wondering why she left her frying pan in her room today. "SHUT UP!!! I can't believe I almost bought into your lies for a second there. I'm nothing but a pair of boobs and a vagina to you!!!"
"Now I wouldn't go that far," he replied.
"Save it. We're through!!!" she screamed, reaching her door.
Broly didn't like losing. He wasn't about to come out the loser in this. "Dream on!!! Once you go Saiyan no other guy's worth playin'."
She sweatdropped. "You just made that up didn't you?"
He nodded proudly. "Yep and it's dead on."
"Well, you won't be playin' with me anytime soon," she snorted, opening her door.
"You'll come back. They always do," he said confidently.
"No Broly, I'm not coming back. But I wouldn't put it above you to assault me anyway."
"What's that supposed to mean?" he almost roared.
"When you want something Broly you take it, not matter what others think. I know you want me Broly, but you won't get me. I'll never be yours. But go ahead, rape me and prove my point."
Oh a challenge huh? Well he wasn't about to back down from that. "Now who's in denial."
"FIVE MINUTES!!! You'll be coming back here to take your frustrations out on me in five minutes. I'm sure of it!!!"
"Yeah, well I bet you'll be running out screaming take me in less than five minutes."
She slammed the door and left him alone in the hallway.
With a huff, Marron headed for her bed. The nerve of that guy!!! Does he actually think I can possibly love anyone who just sees me as a sex object?!
Broly was stomping away from her door; planning to take out his frustrations on the punching bag in the GR. Oh she's done it this time. So what if she doesn't come out. She's not all that. Her tits are too small, she hardly has an ass, and on top of that she's juts a human. I need a real woman, not some little girl who tries to act all mature!!!One minute
She contented herself to glaring at the ceiling while picking at a few loose threads on her sweater. Five minutes huh? More than enough for him to come back. Not that she wanted him too. After that she'd move on. What was she thinking when she got with him?
He'd stop a few yards away from her door. Okay, he'd wait for five minutes. If she didn't come out he'd go to his punching bag, simple as that. No way was he going to prove her of all people right. Hell, there was a hot honey of a she-demon named Ebony, single and with everything a man could ask for in a woman.Two minutes
She'd stopped her fidgeting, but continued to glare at the wall. Broly was a monster, the very definition of one. He took what he wanted and never gave anything in return. He took her heart and gave her back creeping hands, traveling eyes, and disgusting words. She'd made a mistake but she wouldn't put up with it anymore.
What was he losing anyway? Hell, she made Chichi look like a saint. If she didn't get her way she'd either hit him with a frying pan or yell piggy. Not to mention how annoying she sounded when she screamed at him. He was a Saiyan with needs and she was unwilling to give him those needs. No big lose on his part.Three minutes
Had she been too hard on him? Bulma and Chichi had told her numerous times about the challenges being with a Saiyan could be. Bulma often found herself questioning why she had given herself to Vegeta when all he did was demand more and more from her. But he had always come through for her. And Chichi had explained how the days with Goku were the best of her life. Could Broly be like that? Could he really make it worth her while? Wait, what the hell was she thinking?!
He'd visited many worlds, destroyed many civilization. Not once did anyone ever step up to challenge him like she had. Not once had anyone been so bold or deliberate at striking him. Even Goku had hesitated. But not Marron. She spoke her mind and spoke it loudly. Wasn't that what had intrigued him in the first place. No, it wasn't that deep. She'd flashed her boobs at him and he'd been momentarily mesmerized by them. Wait, hadn't already said how pathetic her boobs were?Four minutes
Then again, he had nearly died for her once. He'd fought to protect her from his father, even if it meant destroying him. And he wasn't always so brash and insulting. She'd seen his hidden half, a conflicted individual struggling to figure out whom he really was. On one side was a monster bent on fulfilling its selfish desires. But on the other was a proud Saiyan warrior who fought for what he believed in and for whom he cared for. He didn't really show the later half all that much. In fact, he'd only shown that half of himself to her. And she'd been there for him, letting him wrap those strong arms of his around her for support. And she would kiss him and reassure him that everything was okay. Then he'd try to hide it all under his next perverted jester, completely ruining the moment. She giggled at the thought.
What had drawn him to her in the first place? He'd seen much finer women in his life. Hell, he'd taken much hotter women in his life. But Marron was unique. She had a strong will, stronger than any punch he could throw. However, at the same time she could be the comfort he needed whenever that inner conflict of his would arise. If that happened, all he had to do was open her door. She'd pull the covers back and let him climb in and he'd sigh as she rested her head against him. Times like that made him realize how fragile she was compared to him. He could snap her in two with a slight squeeze. He wanted to protect this person that had become so close to him, that had given so much to him.
She sighed. If I go now, I lose the bet. Ah screw it!!! Marron scrambled out of her bed and rushed to her door.
Okay maybe she's won this time!!! But I always come out on top in the end!!! With that, he turned and started for her door.Five minutes
As he reached for the doorknob the door swung in and Marron slammed right into him. He managed to recover from the shock and catch her before she fell down. She looked up at him and he looked down at her.
Within a second Marron found herself pushed against her doorframe, Broly's mouth ravishing hers. But she didn't mind in the least, running her hands though his head and pushing her tongue out to meet his.
"You…lose… woman…" Broly breathed between gasps and kisses.
"Shut…up… and…take me…" Marron breathed back.
Broly didn't have to be told twice. His hands snaked under her legs and lifted her up, their lips never parting as he walked into the room, kicking the door shut behind him.
Neither had noticed the three speechless girls they'd left behind in the hallway.
"Woah," was all that escaped Pan's mouth.
"Well…I guess we should congratulate them when they come out," Jay said uneasily. Ely tilted her head, wondering what the hell was going on.
"Um…at least mom finished their bed already," Bra added.
((A few hours later))
"I can't believe I just did that," Marron breathed, her back resting against Broly's torso.
He smirked, brushing his lips against the mark he left on her neck. "Believe it woman. You're all mine now."
She smirked back. "And you're all mine now."
He shrugged. "I guess."
She couldn't help but shake her head. "I love you Broly."
"…I…love you too, Marron."
Marron narrowed her eyes. "Was that hesitation I heard?"
"You're having second thoughts about this aren't you?"
"Well, I'm not used to being with just one woman and…aw crap," he said, realizing his mistake too late.
"My thoughts exactly, PIGGY!!!"
He quickly pushed her off and started towards the door. So what if he was butt naked? This was an emergency!!!
Or so he thought when he realized that nothing happened. He stopped in front of the door and looked down. Nothing. His stomach seemed to be in perfect condition. His bowels weren't growling and acting as if they were trying to rip themselves out of his body.
Marron's eyes slowly widened with each passing second Broly stood there. The pill had run its course. The effect had run out. Realizing this, she slowly started edging to the side of the bed, wanting to put something between herself and the Saiyan standing before her. She cursed herself for leaving her pan on the dresser that he now stood next to.
Then he started turning around. He was very slow about it, giving Marron plenty of time to start saying her prayers.
She froze in place when she saw his face and the smile that now spread across it. It had to be the most evil and terrifying smile she'd ever seen.
The words that came out of his mouth brought her back to the real world. "It's payback time!!!"
With that he leapt straight towards her as a cat does a mouse.
Falcon made a mental note to get a house with a roof similar to Capsule Corp. The thought of him and Bra doing this every day almost made him shudder in excitement. He always struggled to hold back the purr that threatened to escape his throat as her nails scratched his scalp again and again.
She smirked as his head swayed from side to side; helping her hands find the spots he wanted scratched the most. "You seem to be enjoying this."
"Mmhm," he replied.
She giggled. "Times like this make me wonder how I got so lucky and found a guy like you Falcon."
"You're everything I want and need Bra. It's as simple as that," he said.
"How do you do that?"
"Make something so simple as that sound like the one phrase I've craved all my life," she answered.
"I only speak the truth."
He allowed her to pull his head up and press her lips to his in a long, passionate kiss that soon found her in his lap, his arms wrapped securely around her.
She pulled back a few inches, locking eyes with him. "I love you Falcon."
He pressed her forehead to hers. "I love you too Bra."
They shared another quick kiss before Bra rested her head against her chest.
It was from this position she first noticed them. At first she thought she was seeing things but more appeared with each passing second. "Falcon, what are those?"
"What are what?" he asked, looking worriedly at her.
"Those things coming out of Chaos Kai's planet," she answered.
His eyes widened and his head shot up, looking straight towards the red planet. He could clearly see them now. Thousands of white spots were flying off the surface and towards Earth.
"Bra, go tell the others. And get my sword."
She nodded without question and hurried inside.
Within a minute everyone stood outside staring up at the approaching objects. There had to be at least a million of them up there. Everyone looked towards each other. The girls found themselves in the arms of their loved one, Ebony not realizing she was now in Goten's.
As they drew closer they became more and more identifiable. There wasn't much to them. They were simply asteroids shot from the red planet towards Earth. The fighters stepped away from their loved ones; Bulma, Chichi, Videl, and Marron heading back into the house, with Goten, Ebony, and Uub staying behind to protect them.
The blazing asteroids soon struck the surface, each creating a huge explosion and causing the whole world to shake. They sensed it in Other World, Demon World, and throughout the universe.
Falcon narrowed his eyes, his mind and body ready for battle. "It begins."
