Ok, hi! Now I must say I apologise for the confusing authors note in the last chappie.
Now I have two very important questions… maybe one depending how you look at it:
Yaoi? Is there any one of my readers who doesn't like it? Let me know if you don't. I wasn't originally going to put it in but then I thought of doing so and… I didn't know who liked it or who wanted it in the story. It wouldn't become a big romance fic suddenly though. There probably wont be very much romance at all.
If the yaoi gets a yes then… pairings?
Sorry but either way, Kai is probably going to be paired with Tala, cos for this story, it's the best way to go. But I'm open for anything else!
Now with the whole 'mental-kai' thing… yeah I know its kinda confusing at the moment, but it should start to make sense soon. One of my reviewers pointed out to me (and I thank them) that 53 isn't very low. I thought it would be, well actually, I didn't know what would be low but I'm like, if you only have half ur mental state, peeps would probably worry. Either way, it's going to get lower (the percentage I mean.)
Right after boring you to death, I am veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery sorry to say, the next chapter isn't ready BUT! I have a few little… preview thingies, of ideas I had for the story.
Number 1: preview thingy for next chapter
"Dranzer, I promised you that there would be no beybattle and therefore there would be no orders, you were only supposed to be a timer." Kai's voice was flat. He peered up through his bangs.
"I'm sorry to break that promise, but here is your sole order, you are to hurt them," Dranzer spun faster. "you are to destroy their beyblades," Dranzer began hitting her master's feet.
Tala growled and pulled out Wolborg, launching it at Kai.
"and finally Dranzer," he tilted his head to the side, dodging Wolborg.
He looked up. "you are to kill them"
He turned around and looked over his shoulder at the bladers, smirking. He stamped his foot once and the floor disappeared from underneath him. Kai fell through and the opening closed after him.
Number 2: preview thingy for next chapter (might I add that these aren't in order)
Kai stood on top of the round pillar, smiling down at them.
"Ttfn!" he called. The top of the pillar slid open and Kai let himself fall through, looking down into the dark space below and grinning.
"Oi!" yelled Michael. He sprinted to the pillar but it had already closed before he could get there. He cursed loudly then turned to Tala. "Now what?"
"We listen and stand ready." Tala replied quietly, ears alert.
Why has the sky turned grey?
Hearing a whooshing sound coming up behind them, the group quickly turned and ducked as large green cubes came flying at them.
The group watched warily as the cubes formed a giant cube. The face of the cube that was facing the group turned black before an image came on the screen.
Kai was standing shirtless, arms out to the side. Grey crept in from the corners, and everything it touched turned black and white.
Max whimpered. It was just like his dream, except it was happening on a giant television.
The grey finally reach Kai's staring eyes but instead of changing their colour completely, it just tinted them so that the usual crimson was an amethyst colour.
Hard to my face
A large gash appeared on Kai's cheek, blood running down his jaw. His eyes hardened.
Cold on my shoulder
Hands came out of nowhere and forcefully turned Kai around, pushing him against the brick wall. Two panels slid open on the wall, one above each of Kai's shoulders. Large thick metal bands emerged, wrapping around Kai's shoulders, disappearing into two new panels that had opened underneath Kai's arms and binding Kai to the wall.
And why has my life gone astray
Kai bowed his head and leant his forehead against the brick wall.
Scarred by disgrace, I know that it's over
Scar after scar appeared on Kai's bare, pale back, describing a story of torture still untold.
Howl at the wind rushing past my lonely head
Caught in its own motion
Kai's form shivered as a cool wind blew through the cell he was in, playing with his bangs.
How I wish it was somebody else instead
Howling at all this corrosion
Why did the luck run dry
Laugh in my face, so pleased to desert me
The metal bindings released Kai in the same way that they had held him. Kai turned and leaned against the wall, breathing hard, before he slid to the ground, slumped against the cool bricks.
Why do the cruel barbs fly?
Now when disgrace can no longer hurt me
Drip by drip, tears ran down Kai's cheeks. They left streaks as they rolled down the dirt covered skin.
"What… was that?" Mariah asked slowly.
Tala didn't answer, instead he listened to the words of the song, hoping for a clue.
Because I'm falling down
With people standing round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time
Could I find someone out there to help me?
Because I'm falling down
Tala frowned. Falling down seemed to be the only clue he could get that made some sort of sense.
And he was right. Slowly, tile after tile began to drop away, falling into black nothingness. The process sped up.
"We need to get out of here!" yelled Rei.
No one needed to be told twice.
The group set off following Tala.
"Tala!" cried Rei as the red head suddenly disappeared.
Tala cursed as the tiles underneath his feet fell out from under him. Bracing him for a fast fall with a painful landing, Tala blinked in surprise when he felt himself falling rather slowly.
He heard Rei call out.
It was Rei's turn to curse as the tiles underneath him disappeared. He fell down with a cry and let out a startled mew as he felt a tight grip on his arm.
He and Tala looked up.
"How did you get yourself into deep shit this time Tala?" the falcon asked in a strained voice as he held onto Tala and Rei.
Tala shook his head and reached one hand up. "You know how I do."
"Unfortuantely, yes." Bryan slid one foot back so that Tala good grab ahold of the edge.
"Ok Bry, you can let go now."
"What? No! Tala don't! Bryan don't let him go!" cried Rei. He panicked and tried to grab at Tala.
Bryan released Tala and Rei screamed, thinking the Russian would fall. Now being able to grab Rei with both hands, Bryan hauled the neko-jin up.
"You idiot!" screamed Rei, ignoring Mariah as she hugged him and ignoring the others as they asked if he was ok. He punched Bryan's shoulder.
"God you're as hormonal as a female." Grumbled Bryan. He rubbed his shoulder.
"Ian, I see your group caught up with us."
Rei turned and looked at Tala with relief. "You're ok."
"Ian's group? Hello, what makes you think the shrimp's in charge?" demanded Bryan as he stood and stretched.
"Because you're usually to lazy to get up off your damn ass." Tala explained dryly. "Alright, two groups together, now we only need to find the third."
"We could have a problem with that…" Kevin trailed off.
The two groups looked around them. Well they were in deep shit now.
Kai, wanting to have some fun, had let the tiles fall away so that the bladers were stuck on a piece of floor in the middle of nowhere.
Problem two would be that the tiles left, were set up like a chess board, and the pawns were at least 2 to 3 times bigger than Gary.
Number Three: uh… not next chappie.
"Who'd you have doing the choreography?" asked Tyson.
"Mm!" Hilary swallowed her drink. "Miss Aishling taught us. She's really pretty and she's one of the new teachers working here. Though she doesn't officially start until sometime this week. Apparently she's good friends with Lucian and Orfeo. She said she's known them since she can remember."
Tala listened with one eye cracked open. His vision flicked over to Bryan who had his head buried in his arms. Tala kicked him in the shin under the table, smirking as Bryan mumbled in Russian and tried to kick back, but Tala pulled his leg back before he could.
"'k guys, need you to stand to greet Aishling!" Orfeo stood from where he was sitting Indian style on the desk next to a pondering Lucian.
"She starts today?" exclaimed Julia. She clapped her hands happily. The girls were quick to stand, pulling some of the boys up with them.
Sighing, Tala stood, signyfying for his team to do so. Kai was brought back from his thoughts when he felt knuckles rapping gently against his skull.
"Ge' up!" demanded a groggy Bryan. He yanked Kai up by his collar and yawned.
Tala and Ian rolled their eyes simultaneously. God Bryan was lazy.
Kai blinked large blood red eyes in Spencer's direction, looking so much like a young child.
Spencer smiled friendly at the younger teen and Kai smiled back shyly as he brought his thumb to his mouth and began chewing on the nail. He waved then quickly tucked his hand back by his side. Spencer chuckled slightly then turned to where he could feel his Captain's glare coming from.
Icy blue eyes glared long and hard at him before the owner turned away, biting down into his bottom lip savagely.
"Say hello peeps, to the world's most evil chick, worse then the grade 8 witch, or the red headed pmsing yappiedie yappiedie cow, say hello to Aishling!" Orfeo bowed down low mockingly.
A beautiful young woman stepped into the room. She bopped Orfeo on the head and smiled at Lucian, who stared back with unusually dull eyes. She cast him a worried glance before her gaze swept over the bladers in front of her. Finally, her eyes met lilac.
Bryan frowned as the 'chick' stepped into the room. She seemed familiar. She hit Orfeo on the head, smiled at Lucian, looked around and finally, hazel met lilac.
Bryan blinked wearily. He felt tired. Not lazy tired but tired, tired. Like exhausted. He blinked twice more, trying to get his eyes to focus. His knees felt weak, his head was pounding, he felt ready to puke and the scratch on his head felt like it was stretching open.
He threw a hand out to grab onto Tala to stable himself as the room began to spin.
Tala felt the weak grip clench onto his arm before sliding off. There was a bang and a few of the desks were moved.
Tala looked to the side, confused. "what the? Bryan!"
Bryan's form lay in the middle of fallen desks, crumpled, pale and shuddering. Tala leant down next to him, eyes narrowed. He touched Bryan's temple where blood was slowly leaking out of a cut Bryan had obtained when his head hit the desks. Thankfully, the cut was only small, not big enough to do any serious damage.
"Bry what's up? Bry?" Tala looked at the falcon's face and cursed as glassy lilac eyes slid shut and the pale form shuddered one last time before going limp.
Tala looked up when he heard giggling. He was ready to yell at Michael or Tyson or whoever but not Kai.
Kai leant over the desks and peered at Bryan intently. He laughed again and his eyes travelled to Tala's face. He smiled at the red head. "Fun!" he hissed, eyes narrowing and his smile turning into a feral smirk. And suddenly he was smiling and laughing again. He put his finger to his lips. "…shh…" he broke off into uncontrolable laughter, clutching his sides while Tala shook his head almost fearfully.
Number Four: probably not next chappie
"And this?" asked Mr Pyne as he drew the next symbol up on the board.
Kai raised his head and peered at the symbol. He cocked his head to the side and raised his hand.
Kai put his hand down now that he had been chosen but he continured to stare at the symbol. Finally he narrowed his eyes and spat "Dihydrate!"
The tower of random things that Ian had been building suddenly collapsed, things rolling everywhere.
There was a hissing sound and all the taps suddenly turned on.
Tala and Rei ducked slightly as the whiteout Bryan had been twirling in his fingers exploded, the white liquid going all over the surprised falcon.
The windows next to Tyson, Diachi and Max blew open. A strong wind passed through and caused all the pages of books to flip and all loose papers to sail around the room. Tyson cried out as his cap flew off his head.
The lights flickered and went out and the interactive whiteboard turned itself on. The pen picked itself up and hovered in front of the screen. It began to write.
The screen's background was black and in large red letters was the word 'dihydrate.' The pen crossed out the 'hydrate' and added an e to the 'di' so that it read 'die'. Large red wings were drawn around the word. Thick chains were added.
The firealarm went off and the sprinklers came on.
Everyone ran for the door. Mr Pyne reached it first and he jiggled the handle, trying to get the door open. It wouldn't. It was locked from the outside.
"Everyone stay calm!" demanded Mr Pyne and he turned to face his class.
"Kai? Kai snap out of it!" Tala shook the dual haired teen by his shoulders, wincing as Kai began to laugh louder.
Tala pulled away and glanced around the room. Everything was going mad. The shelves were shaking, the glass beakers and test tubes rattling. The lights kept flicking on and off and the taps were still spraying water everywhere. The fire alarm was still blaring and everyone was soaked head to toe from the sprinklers. Random items began exploding; pens, whiteout, bottles of water. All the windows blew open, blowing everything everywhere, the wind so strong that the chairs and desks began to tip over. The blinds that usually covered the windows kept opening and closing and the white board markers were writing on the normal whiteboard.
Deep cackling coming from the interactive whiteboard speakers joined Kai's own laughter.
What was happening?
