Author's Note: Inspired by Britney Spears' Til the World Ends. This has a kick a$$ beat. I love techno music and this song sounds wicked. :) Could be seen as a quasi sequel to Paralyzer.

A special shout out to 88dragon06 and Semjaza for their lovely reviews on Paralyzer as well. ;)


Til the World Ends

Nero loved going to clubs. There were plenty of hot chicks and drinks for everyone, not to mention music. Nero loved the music more than anything -what was a good club without killer music? He'd only been to this particular club a few times, but it had begun to grow on him.

The bouncer finally let him through; laser lights met his eyes as the pulse of the bass vibrated his chest cavity. Nero grinned to himself. Boy it was good to be back. He made his way past the crowded bar. He wanted onto the floor -booze could come later. A few random women snagged on his blue hoodie, but he pulled away shooting them devilish smirks.

The DJ chanted something into the microphone then a new song came blaring across the speakers. Nero finally made his way into the throng of bodies on the dance floor. He saw a fiery redhead dancing diagonal from him, but before he could push through a girl slipped in front of him. This one had chin length raven tresses and she hadn't seemed to notice him. Nero smirked to himself.

"Hey," he called until he caught her attention.

She quirked an eyebrow, "Hey."

"What's your name?"

She grinned, "Lady."

The girl -Lady- went back to dancing, ignoring Nero's attempt at conversation.

"My name's Nero."

"Good for you."

His left eye twitched, "I would think it's the other way around."

Again with the eyebrow raise, "How precisely?"

Nero grinned, "Because it's always a privilege to get to know someone new."

"I'm sure it is," she turned and made her way to the other side of the dancing bodies.

Nero cursed under his breath and stole after her. When he caught up to her, she was dancing alone.

"Hey," he smiled.

She rolled her eyes," Hey."

"So, Lady, what brings you to this club?"

"I happened to invite her," a velveteen voice cut into the -one sided- conversation.

Nero whirled around and met the ice cold gaze of a guy who definitely looked like he could kick his ass.

"Hey, Vergil," Lady purred.

He smirked at her then glanced back to Nero, "May I ask what brings you to this club?"

Nero flushed, "N-nothing, just-"

"Trying to meet some new people; because it's always a privilege to get to know someone new, right Nero?" Lady's multicolored eyes twinkled.

"Right," Nero smiled half-heartedly, "well I'll be going."

"Nice to make your acquaintance," Vergil smirked.

Nero backed away, "Uh, yeah, you too."

"It was such a pleasure to meet you," laughed Lady.

Nero took off, making his way back to where he originally met Lady -he shuddered- never again.


Nero jerked his head to the left and met the gaze of the redhead he had noticed first.

He gave a small smile, "Hey."

She smiled, "The name's Kyrie, and yours?"


"Nero, sounds exotic."

Nero smiled broadly, "Thanks. Would you like to dance?"

Kyrie blushed, "Yes, I'd like that very much."

Nero grabbed her hand and felt his pulse quicken. The song still blared over the speakers -never felt like, felt like this before- and glancing over at Kyrie, Nero couldn't agree more.


Please review. :)
