Before Story: I wanna thank all who've been reading and following this story!:)


Why is it so hard to let you go?
Have I gone from addicted to dependent?"

"You're using me-you're a damn parasite!"The void began to twist, pull and warp itself, letting out anguished screams. Tygra's ears laid back and he bared his sharp teeth when the void smirked while it screamed. 'You're mocking me...'

"I won't object to any of that Tygra." he said when he stood tall and proud in the flesh of the brother. "What's the best thing to have this flesh is that I could easily kill him and take his place and no one would ever notice! Because he has no name, only a slave number!" he let out a loud crackle of laughter. "If I do kill him, it'd be all your fault!"

"Shut up!"

"No-I still have to repay you for everything I took-"


"You call me a parasite-but I give back my due" Tygra shuddered when the void spoke those words with an unnatural sympathetic face. The void outstretched his hand, "I'll repay-in what, you may ask"?

"I don't want anything from you-you've broken me down over and over."

His smile jerked up wickedly again, "Yes, I know what you want-" he unfurled his hand...

Tygra's eyes widened but he wasn't going to stoop down to that level. "Why? Why did you have to kill him?"

The void growled, shut his hand and raked his claws across Tygra's face, "You look away from your prize?" he spat. When he didn't answer the void began to kick, punch and stomp on him. "Pathetic-Some 'man' you are-you can't fight your own battles-Both Deitous and Xynol could've killed you if no one intervened." the void taunted the already bloody tiger. Soon the void's patience was running thin while his anger extremely high when he caught Tygra by the throat and glared deeply into his eyes. "Listen- you'll never belong anywhere-you'll never be anything." Then golden eyes dulled but not before seeing two figures instead of one looking down at him.

Tygra coughed up blood, is this how it's gonna end? Him lying on his side and bleeding to death?

No tiger, you're not going to die, you still have many years ahead of you.

"How do you know?"

I just do

"Don't lie to me..."

I'm not lying to you...I see things others might not

"-Like me" Tygra shut his eyes, this was just the person who sugar coated the reality that he was going to die. But when he felt a hand on his shoulder he knew that he was indeed gonna die. His eyes opened and looked up to see a girl about his age looking at him. "I saw you-"

Yes, I was there


To give you peace, and make 'him' go away

Tygra's heart began racing, freedom? The one thing he's probably always wanted.

We all have addiction to something, even if we don't truly notice. We all hunger, we all feed but Tygra, your addiction is killing you, it feeds off of you and in the end it leaves you a drooling mess.

"I don't need explanation-"

You fed the void and look what it has's in flesh, it breathes, it walks. You've turned it into a reality. Now it's no longer a 'void'-it's a demon.

"A demon? I've never heard of any demon"

There's a way to seal it away...

Tygra knew that the way to lock 'it' away was going to be far from pleasant.

You have to let, what you created consume you-burn you and then you claw yourself out.

"Wait? How-" her lips smashed onto his, cutting him off. He tried to pull away but she wouldn't let him and her hand wrapped around his neck while the other pulled on clumps of his hair. 'Why? Why are you kissing me?' his eyes closed when her warmth surrounded him and numbed the cuts and ache.

Let it consume you...You have much to live for...I know you'll make it through, Tygra

Her voice echoed but faded along with her warmth.

"Wait!" Tygra reached out for her as light surrounded her form, "Don't go! Please!"

There's darkness ahead of you; but also the spark of hope and companionship

Golden eyes widened as he felt a spike thrust through his stomach. His jaw dropped while he turned his head up to see the yellow eyes of the brother. With out reason or thought he outstretched his hand and with his fingers tips touched his or 'it's' face. "-were like a brother to me" he spoke before feeling another spike go through his left bicep.

"I may have needed you before- but not any more" his voice dripped with venom along with his eyes...

...Tygra's eyes stared dully at the wimping thing in front of him. Black suit and smoke hung around them and made the air extremely heavy.

"I KILLED you!" it snarled crawling back.

"Thought, you fucking parasite" Tygra's voice lacked any emotion.

"H-how? I speared you several times with lethal intent!"

Golden eyes narrowed before a sick smirk tugged at his lips and he neared the void, "How does it feel to finally be the one who's afraid? The one who can't live in happiness without looking over their shoulder?" The void didn't answer and propped himself against the wall, "You said you basically hollowed me from the inside out, but I guess the flesh-my flesh doesn't agree with you." he swiped two fingers across the void's face and showed him the black residue that was left. "You're leaking"

The void began to panic and frantically smeared the black stuff all over his face before looking up at Tygra, "You! It's your fucking fault-"

"No-it's yours." Tygra kneeled and shot his hand through the void's chest. Instantly the void squirmed and shrieked as Tygra dug, pulling organs, muscle tendons and even bones out. "This is mine-" yellow eyes widened once Tygra ripped out the black beating heart. "Shame you turned it black" Tygra spoke looking questionably at the heart before setting down on the floor next to the void.

"You need me-brat" Tygra said nothing as he stomped on the heart and watch the void's remaining body go up in flames. Surprisingly he didn't scream or yell out in again, instead he looked up to Tygra and gave a faint smile, "I promise you, I will return..." Then the void's body completely smoldered to ashes and the heaviness in the air vanished.

The tiger fell to his knees and began coughing and hacking loudly. Sweat slid down his face as he gave one last cough and let the remainder of the black goo out of his body. He wanted no remembrance of the void or his addiction and he had now gotten rid of it.

"Tygra!Tygra!Tygra!" someone distantly called his name but his vision began to blur.

"W-whoshe shere?" his words were slurred as if he were drunk. 'Whats's wrong with me? Why does my body feel heavy-' he collapsed onto the ground.

...Years Later...

"You hear that?"

"Hear what?"

"They're callin' your name"

Sure enough Tygra looked over the balcony and saw hordes of people shouting, "King Tygra! The future king of Thundera!" He smirked and patted his brother's back, "They want a grown up King, not one that still believes in myths and fairy tails."

"How?" the younger brother looked up to him. "How can they look past all the things you've done wrong?"

"The hell you talking about?"

"They want you to be King but why not me?"

"People talk about you being crazy or just plain stupid because you still believe in technology-" Tygra walked away when Lion'O turned away, angrily.

"They say I've screwed up, that I'm still a kid -hell even Father thinks you should be King, but what makes you so special? I've tried so hard to be like you so that everyone could at least give me a chance but it wasn't enough- it's never enough! I'm still the weird one- the one that could never compare to you!"

Tygra closed his eyes and clenched his fists and left. Once in the door way he shut the door as hard as he could and repeatedly began to hit it with his forearms. 'You're wrong Lion'O, I'm not the one becoming King-even though I deserve it far more than you' He gave a heavy sigh and turned away from the whole door. The hallways were lit completely with the sun's rays and he passed several maids, who quickly moved out of his way because of the seriousness plastered on his face.

'It's been sixteen years, and even though I've proven myself over and over I'll never be king!' His fists clenched again, hard enough to draw blood. He looked down at his arms and saw the stripes, they were the reason he would never become King. Again he closed his eyes, he was well liked now but somehow it wasn't enough. Was it the fact that it took years to become this way? Was it because he secretly still grieved over Leira's death, which happened when Lion'O was six years old? Was it really because he couldn't be King? Or was it because he wanted to be the only one-and much more than King?

He leaned in closer to the mirror in his room and saw the bright golden eyes that drew in the women. Then on the side of his face he saw the eye redden, the cheek bone prod out, and the mouth widen into a disturbing smile revealing sharp teeth.

'Beauty in the eye of the beholder-' they both said, their voices chorusing together in complete opposite octaves. 'Sin in heart of the beholder' the other voice mocked before breaking into laughter.

"Such a cry baby you are
little brother,
You have everything I want and plenty more
Yet, you still want the 'praise' I get
Most of it's fake
And you want it?
Be my guest, take the last thing I have
And screw it up, just like you do everything else
But I know you could never take it from me even if you tried

I've grown, I've matured
And you still believe in fairy tales
That's why you cry and whine
You're still a kid
I've always been in you're shadow, not the other way around
And if what I have pisses you off
Well then I'll enjoy every fucking minute of it

I'm holdin' on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground.
And I'm hearin' what you say,
But I just can't make a sound.
You tell me that you need me,
Then you go and cut me down...
But wait...
You tell me that you're sorry,
Didn't think I'd turn around...
And say...

That it's too late to apologize.
It's too late...
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.

[Verse 2]
I'd take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it's nothin' new.
I loved you with a fire red,
Now it's turnin' blue...
And you say...
Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you...
But I'm afraid...

It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.


It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.

I said it's too to apologize. YEAH!
I said it's too late to apologize. YEAH!
I'm holdin' on your rope,
got me ten feet off the ground.

~~~~~In The End~~~~
By: Linkin Park

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so (far)
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end

You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

A/N: SORRY FOR WAY LATE CHAPTER! Yeah, I thought both songs fit this Chapter so I put 'em both!

To clear things up:

1st the girl he talks to in this chapter is Pumyra (wanted to put her in)

Claudus, Grune and Panthro were looking for Tygra

Tygra in reality never met his cousin
