Aliens – Nerima Hive

Chose your own Epilogue

Hunter:

Once in the alley the predator tapped a few buttons and a small ship suddenly appeared. He motioned to it and gestured to Ranma. The red haired girl looked back at him and said, "I think you want me to come huh?"

Ranma looked at her dead friends and depression filled her. "I don't suppose I can think about it?"

The predator just motioned again and she said, "I guess not."

Standing there next to the amazing ship with the bodies of her friends next to her Ranma made her decision….

She stepped into the ship and followed after the hunter. The ship took off into the skies and she left everything behind. She left her male self behind burying Ranma Saotome with his friends and family.

The girl who left with the predator was no longer a martial artist she had become a warrior and a hunter. It did not take long for her to learn the predator language. After that she began to understand more of the Predator ways and fought her way to the top of the predator clan hierarchy becoming one of the youngest tribe leaders in Predator history. She found out about planets where more Aliens could be found and would send her tribe to them going in and decimating entire populations leaving nothing. Over time her campaign of annihilation made other tribes shun her and finally she was summoned to a conclave of tribe leaders.

Ranma stood in front of the conclave and took her arms and armament off. She stood in front of them and listened to them as they complained about her tactics. Complained about how she was decimating the very prey that they wanted to hunt. She just looked at them all and stared at them with death in her eyes as she said, "My tribe and I are fighting a war. We are fighting against the Alien foes without any technology and we are destroying them. We can and we will kill every single Alien we can find. We will take them all and we will forever be known as the ultimate hunters in the galaxy."

The conclave erupted into anger and shouts when Ranma yelled out, "It will be done! If any of you have a problem with it you may challenge me now."

The assembled tribe leaders looked at Ranma as chi enveloped her body, she was indeed powerful and she could fight without the technological weapons, but once she was in a ship perhaps she would be easier to destroy. They said, "Ranma of Clan Saotome you very well know that right of combat is not accepted at a conclave."

Ranma snorted and said, "Very well what is it that you plan to do then? Will you make me an outcast? Be reminded that my tribe is loyal to me and they will follow me even into hell itself. I have lead them in thousands of combats against implacable foes. If you wish to declare me an outcast you will be declaring war. Is that what you want?"

The assembled conclave discussed among themselves and declared their verdict, "Ranma of clan Saotome you must be declared an outcast for the very survival of our way of life."

Ranma stared at the assembled conclave and brought her powerful chi to the forefront a red aura surrounded her as she said, "Very well, so be it. The next time you meet my clan you will be hunted down." With that she stalked out of the room.

The war began and would encompass hundreds of worlds and peoples. Most of whom would not ever know why…

Martial Artist:

Once in the alley the predator tapped a few buttons and a small ship suddenly appeared. He motioned to it and gestured to Ranma. The red haired girl looked back at him and said, "I think you want me to come huh?"

Ranma looked at her dead friends and depression filled her. "I don't suppose I can think about it?"

The predator just motioned again and she said, "I guess not."

Standing there next to the amazing ship with the bodies of her friends next to her Ranma made her decision….

"I can't go with you. Bitterness and anger fill my soul, but there are people left here in Nerima; people who might still need my help. A martial artist's duty is to protect the weak, it may be corny, but that is a code that I will always follow."

The predator looked at Ranma and nodded. Then it walked into its ship and brought out a single Katana. He reverently handed Ranma the Katana and then pointed to a picture on its hilt. "Maga Kiandhe Amedha."

Ranma looked at the symbol and noticed that it looked much like the demon queen. The Predator saw that Ranma was watching and added one single line next to the picture. Then he handed it to Ranma and said something incomprehensible and bowed with the sword outstretched. Ranma realized what he wanted and took the sword.

With that the Predator walked back into the ship. The ship slowly disappeared from view and Ranma walked off to the hospital with the bodies of Ukyou and Konatsu. He left them there at the morgue and walked away. He walked for some time finding himself in front of the destroyed Tendo Home. He walked past and then towards the Neko Hanten.

When Ranma arrived at the Neko Hanten the first thing he saw was Kasumi. She was sitting in a vigil and chanting a prayer over and over again. When Ranma came in she stopped chanting and stood up. Moments later she engulfed him in a hug and said, "Oh Ranma!" Then she cried.

Ranma was unsure what to do. He just stood there and accepted the hug and then slowly he returned it saying, "I'm sorry Kasumi. I shouldn't have let any one else come with me. I should have been there for you. I…"

"Oh Ranma, it's not your fault. You can't blame yourself for everything." Kasumi was only sniffling as she said that and then she looked deeply into Ranma's eyes and said, "It isn't your fault."

Ranma looked back at the pretty brown haired girl and wished he could convince himself. Then he heard a commotion in the back of the Neko-Hanten and his mother's voice cried out. He rushed towards the voice and saw Cologne and Shampoo standing around a table with his mother on it. The elder Saotome woman was tied down and her naked chest was showing.

"What are ya doin!" Ranma started towards the two, but he was stopped by a gentle hand on his shoulder.

"It is an ancient Amazon ritual that they found in the warehouse. It is supposed to remove the taint of the demons when they get inside you." Ranma looked back at Kasumi and calmed down.

"Alright, but I don't have to like it."

"No, but it may be the only chance your mother has. The hospital emergency room is backed up and I doubt modern science understands what to do in case of demonic infection."

Ranma looked on with an angry scowl and watched as Cologne and Shampoo used the ancient ritual. Kasumi tugged on his shoulder and said, "Perhaps it is better if you do not watch Ranma?"

Ranma sighed and let the Tendo girl lead him into the main room of the Neko-Hanten. There he waited to see if the Amazon ritual would work. While he waited Kasumi began her prayer again and after some time Ranma joined in. After hours of this prayer it was finally over and Cologne came out to see them.

The ancient Amazon came into the room and tapped Ranma on the shoulder. "Your mother will live Son-in-law. It seems that you got your amazing healing ability from both of your parents."

Ranma smiled and said, "Now what happens?"

Cologne stared at Ranma and said, "That is up to you Son-in-law. You must decide what to do with yourself now. You must decide where you will go from here, but know this. You are no longer beholden to marry Shampoo. Your defeat of the demons and a promise to aid the Amazons when they are in need is all that I ask of you. Your path is your own Ranma Saotome. Take the lessons you have learned on this day and choose it wisely"

Ranma looked at Cologne and said, "Thank you." Then he smiled a large smile and added, "Sensei."
