So, Read, Review, and Enjoy! Like always! :D

Chapter Eleven

God vs. Angel

After that, I didn't hesitate after that. Seeing Oyama disappear in obvious despair, I had to stop Ayato once and for all. I quickly ran down the tunnels, hearing the sound of gunfire up ahead. That bastard is going to get what's coming to him, I thought.

After a while, I finally arrived at the exit. The sound of gunfire and the clanking of metal could be heard above. They must be in the gym, I thought, readying my pistol as I climbed up and out of the Guild entrance...

...And I stepped out into the gym just in time to see Tachi take a bullet directly to the head. "Tachi!" I shouted, horrified by the sight of the shot. I fell back, holding onto my mouth, and trying not to gag. Ayato let out a wicked laugh, and turned to face me.

I wanted nothing more than to put a bullet into him in that moment...But the gruesome sight stopped me. "Not even someone as strong as herself could stop me." he said, walking towards me, his gun pointed directly at me.

I glared at him, clenching my teeth in rage. "You...monster!" I spat at him, and he simply let out another laugh, firing a bullet at the ground beside me. "I like that edge in your voice," Ayato told me, "It allows me to see the fear you're hiding behind that massive ego of yours."

Like you're one to talk, I thought, remembering all of the times that he had gloated about being 'God'. "How can you be so heartless?" I asked, getting annoyed by Ayato's constant smirk. "It's hard not to be when you have had your heart ripped from you." he told me, and his smirk cease for a moment...

I raised an eyebrow, wondering if having something from his past life haunt him would give me an edge...But he quickly recovered, and let out a chuckle. "But none of that matters now," he told me, aiming the gun straight at my head, "For I am god..."

I closed my eyes, not wanting to see the bullet he was about to shoot. Not wanting the same outcome that had befallen Tachi...But I couldn't help myself from sneaking a peek at Tachi...Only to find that she wasn't laying where she had been.

"Now suffer a fate like your Angel friend!" Ayato shouted. For the first time, I was able to grin at him. He raised an eyebrow, and was obviously confused. "I guess you never realized...Tachi wouldn't fall that easily!" I said, and Ayato started to turn...But not before Tachi stabbed her blade through his back and straight through his heart.

Ayato could barely let out a gasp before he sunk to his knees, and then to the floor. Tachi pulled the blade from him, and stared blankly at his limp body. I stood up and gave a sigh of relief. "Tachi...you saved me." I said, giving a shaking smile. "But...how did you survive that hit to the head?" I asked.

Tachi turned around, and whispered: "Guard skill: Harmonics". And, right before my eyes, she split into two. The clone of her looked completely identical, besides the clone's eyes, which were a velvet-red color. "My copy took the blow...And I hid until the right moment." she explained, and the two Tachis' glanced at each other.

I gave a sigh of relief. "Thank god it wasn't you..." I said, "That was a terrible sight...I don't want to ever see that happen to you..." I closed my eyes as the gruesome scene came back to me. Then, suddenly, I felt arms wrap around me. Opening my eyes, I was surprised to see that I was in Tachi's embrace.

"Tomoshibi...Why do you call me Tachi?" she asked me. I was surprised by the question, and I wasn't quite sure how to answer it. "Well...it was just a kind of nickname..." I tried to answer, trailing off. Tachi looked up at me for a moment, and told me, "Please...call me Kanade."

I looked at her for a few moments before nodding. "A-Alright...Kanade." I said with a smile. As I looked down at her, she seemed to have a hinted smile coming from her eyes. Then, a returning question came to my mind. "Kanade...how exactly did you come to the Afterlife?" I asked. She looked downward, and she dug her fingers into my back.

The memory was obviously painful. "O-Oh, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have-" I began to say, but Kanade placed a finger over my mouth. She then looked up at me, and said:

"I'll tell you...of an Angel's Tale..."

To be continued...

Next Chapter: An Angel's Tale

Note: Probably not worth the wait, but, eh...This story started back at the beginning of the series, so there are lots of holes in the plot, which I'll make sure to make up for in my own special way. ;D Stay tuned for the next chapter!
