Ah, the final chapter. This is where it all ends... or does it?
Disclaimer; I own my idea, Steven, and Alyson.
"Half demon speach."
"FULL DEMON SPEECH."
"3/4 DeMOn SpEAcH"
"Wake up..." I heard Alyson sob as she tried to wake Steven up.
"He gave his soul to bring you back to life... He won't be waking up..." I told her, slightly saddened by what had happened.
"No... No, no, no, no, no, no... You're lying... Of course he'll wake up... He always wakes up... ... ... ..." Alyson sobbed out.
I turned my head to the side, and walked out of the crater.
"Is there nothing we can do?" I heard Batman ask.
I shook my head, and said "No... There's nothing we can do."
"I AM THE SHINIGAMI KING... SOME CALLED ME DEATH, THE GRIM REAPER, AND THE DEVIL HIMSELF. CALL ME AS YOU WISH, BUT EITHER WAY YOU HAVE 5 MINUTES TO PLEAD TO ME WHY YOU SHOULD GET THE PRIVILEGE TO GO BACK TO THE LIVING REALM."The Shinigami Kings voice boomed.
"Why are you going to let me plead? What do you have to gain, or to lose?" I asked him.
"BOY, WHY QUESTION YOUR ONE CHANCE OF SAVIOR?"The Shinigami King asked.
"Because one does not save someone without good reason." I told him.
"BOY, YOU ARE WISE FOR A HUMAN, AND MOST CERTAINLY WISE FOR A HUMAN YOUR AGE, BUT THAT IS IRRELEVANT TO WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU. FOR YOUR SAKE, I HOPE YOU HAVE THOUGHT UP A GOOD ARGUMENT TO STAYING, FOR YOU ONLY HAVE 1 MINUTE." The Shinigami King boomed.
"I'll take that as a complement." I said turning around, and walking the other way.
"BOY, WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING? THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM ME, YOUR FATE IS ABSOLUTE, AND UNCHANGEABLE. YOU'RE GOING TO HELL, AND THERE'S NO STOPPING IT."The Shinigami King said.
I tilted my head to the side, and said "No fate is absolute, and I don't think where I go concerns you in the slightest. Hectrosious, get me out of here."
"DON'T ORDER ME AROUND STEVEN, I WILL NOT TAKE ORDERS FROM A MERE MORTAL. ... BUT I MUST AGREE, THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLY BLAND, and BORING..." Hectosious boomed throughout my head.
He then opened a large portal in-front of me, and I started to walk through it.
"BOY! YOU WONT ESCAPE ME FOR LONG! I WILL FIND YOU, AND TAKE YOU TO HELL PERSONALLY. MARK MY WORDS I'LL-" But the rest of his speach was unknown to me, as was his words he wished me to mark, for I had just walked through the portal. But all I felt was pain, and agony. All I heard was crying, and sobs. All I thought was, 'Well, I guess I succeeded, and brought Alyson back to life then...'
"Alyson... Get off me, you're crushing my lungs." Steven coughed out.
"St-Steven? Steven! You're alive!" I screamed, tears of joy raining from my eyes, as I jumped down on him, and hugged him with all my might.
"Alyson, I might not wake up this time, don't over use me now." Steven told me.
I nodded, and pulled back a little to a tight hug.
"Thank god you're okay! I was so worried." I cried into his shoulder.
"God... He had nothing to do with it, nor would he have wanted to help me, thank Hectrosious, the demon." Steven said.
"Demon? Steven, what are you talking about?" I asked him.
Steven sat up, and popped his fingers, and said "I have a demon inside of my body, a shadow demon to be exact, and he opened the portal back to the living world from Limbo. Long story short, The Shinigami King is mad to say the least, and we got to go... Now."
"Wait, what do you mean? Go where?" I asked him.
Steven looked me in the eye, and said "We have to go to another dimension."
"But, why?" I asked him, clearly confused, but happy for us to be alive all the same.
"Because like I said earlier, The Shinigami King's mad, and he's mad at me, so we got to go to another dimension to escape his wrath... for a little bit longer." Steven told me.
"What do you mean by 'a little bit longer'?" I asked him curiously.
"He's still after me, I was supposed to have died, and go to hell, but we escaped, and now he's after me, and he'll chase me to other dimensions as well. There's only a temporary escape." Steven said.
"Wait, you're supposed to be dead. How are you still alive?" a monotonous voice asked.
"Wait, you're supposed to be dead. How are you still alive?" I asked asked.
Steven turned to face me, and said "Need I reexplain why I'm alive? We escaped The Shinigami King, it's as simple as that."
"But you don't 'escape The Shinigami King', you just can't. He knows all, sees all, and hears all. You should be dead right now." I said, making sure my point was not taken lightly.
"That is why we must leave soon." Steven said calmly.
"How? There is no place he can not go. Other dimension, or not, he will find you eventually." I told him clearly.
Steven sighed, and said "I realize that, which is why we will not stay in the same dimension for very long. Meaning, we will return here in the future."
"For your sake, you'd hope we don't meet again in the future." I heard Batman call out.
"Ah, now I remember you, you're the guy from the tower in space. Sorry about that, but I don't suppose that helps much now does it?" Steven asked.
Batman narrowed his eyes, and said "No, it doesn't. Just don't kill any heros in the other dimensions."
Steven sighed, and said "I won't as long as they don't bother us."
Batmans narrowed his eyes even more, but as he was about to say something his Bat-signal went off.
He looked at it, and called the Bat-plane, and said "Tell me what happens later.
He jumped in, and flew back to Gotham.
I watched Batman fly back to Gothem, in a hurry too.
'It must be Joker.' I thought
Steven suddenly cried out in pain, as a sly voice said "I don't think you realize who you're messing with Mr. Richards, I am an immortal being, ever since Trigon brought me back to life."
We all looked in his direction, but saw Slade enveloping Steven in a cloak of white hot flame.
"Steven!" Alyson screamed.
"Slade! Stop this right now, it's over. You're finished." I screamed at him.
He laughed in a sinister way, and said "Robin, Robin, Robin... You are dealing with a force you can't stop. This is destiny, it was meant to happen."
"No... You're wrong. If you put your will to it, you can defy destiny all together." Steven growled, his eyes going red-green.
"Oh? You're still alive?" Slade asked completely ignoring what Steven said.
"I am going to- ARRGGHHH!" he screamed in pain as Slade once again enveloped him in flame.
"It's rude to interrupt people I know, but I just couldn't help myself." Slade said, secretly smirking under his mask.
"Slade! Stop this right now!" I screamed, but in vain.
"If you lay so much as touch another hair on Steven... I'll KILL YOU, YOU BASTARD!" Alyson screamed, enraged being a huge understatement. (Angry Alyson - LINK: 25 . media . tumblr tumblr_m50qczGonD1qm8nv9o1_ )
Slade bends over, and picks Steven up by his chard hair, and says "Like this?"
Alyson screams a battle cry that would make a viking run away crying, and charges at Slade.
"Foolish girl, you think you can defeat me?." Slade asks mockingly, reaching behind his back.
"Alyson, get back!" I screamed at her noticing him do so, but alas, it was too late.
Alyson continued charging to Slade, but when she got there, Slade pulled out a taser, and knocked her out.
"I no longer need you girl, it would be best for you to leave now." Slade said, walking towards the garage door leading out.
I ran forward screaming a battle cry, but Slade merely kicked me in the back of the head, and threw me to the ground.
"No!" I screamed in vain.
He was about to leave, when I heard "NOOOO! YOU WILL NOT TAKE MY HOST! YOU WILL REPLACE HIM ON THE GROUND, AND LEAVE TO GO ROT IN YOUR PITIFUL HOLE!"
"What? Who's there?" Slade called out, unaware that Steven was awaking.
Stevens eyes flew open, and started glowing blood red. he grabbed Slades side, and flung him into the ground, deepening the crater even more so.
Slade laughed, and said "I already told you. You can't kill me. I'm an immortal god, your just a- AAAHHHH!"
But he was interrupted but Steven grabbing him, and beating him into the ground senseless.
"Ow..." he groaned out.
"YoU HaVE EvokED mY WrATh FOr tHE lAst tImE!" Steven growled out, a deeper, much more dark voice under laying his own.
"Guys! Get back!" Raven called out to us.
"HeCtrOSIouS! OpeN thE pOrtAL... nOW!" Steven shouted out to no one.
"DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ORDER ME STEVEN, I MAY HAVE HELPED YOU LAST TIME, BUT THIS TIME, IT'S ALL ON YOU..." Hectrosious boomed.
"SlAde... YoU wiLl DiE bY my haNdS! I wiLl PERsoNallY rIP youR soUL oUt Of youR BODy, anD CruSH iT SloWly!" Steven growled.
"Steven, you really must learn to control your anger." Slade said mockingly.
"Commander!" an unknown voice yelled.
"RoNALd! GEt ALysoN tO saFetY! I cAn'T conTRol mYSelF mUCh lOngeR!" Steven growled out.
"Y-yes sir!" Ronald stuttered out.
"Ma'am, please follow us to safety." one of the other 12 solders said.
"No! I refuse to leave Steven here alone." Alyson said.
"But Ma'am, the commander said-" a solder tried to say.
"I don't care what anybody says! I'm staying here with Steven." Alyson growled out.
'My will power is crumbling, I won't be able to control Hectrosious much longer.' I thought.
You could almost hear the metal of the mental cage creaking. Creaking, creaking, CRACK!
"STEVEN, YOU'VE LOST."I heard in the back of my mind.
Pain, white hot pain. That's all I could comprehend.
3rd Person POV
"GeT oUt... GEt OuT oF My HeAD! GeT oUT, geT ouT, gET-" Steven screamed in agony.
"Steven!" Alyson yelled in worry.
"ALySoN, GeT OUt oF hEre- ARRRRGGGGGG!"he screamed as his backs skin bubbled, and popped.
"I AM FREEEEEEEE!" Hectrosious screamed in victory.
Swirling dark energy flowed out of Steven in all directions. Flowing, and turning around, and around him. Forming a huge, dark, figure out of the semi-transparent energy. A grey-ish white area in the middle where Steven was floating.
"Steven..." Alyson said in a near whisper.
"What is that thing?" Robin asked in pure, utter confusion.
"I AM HECTROSIOUS! SERPENT DEMON, LORD OF ANGER, AND HATE, AND I HAVE BROKEN FREE OF MY CONFINES!"Hectrosious screamed.
"That is the demon Steven was talking about?" Raven asked herself.
"So, this is what was inside you all this time." Slade said calmly.
"SLADE, JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU ARE IMMORTAL, DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T DIE. TRIGON LIED TO YOU, YOU ARE ONLY ALIVE SO LONG AS HE KEEPS YOU ALIVE." Hectrosious boomed.
Slades eye widened slightly.
"I CAN ALSO TAKE AWAY THAT PETTY "IMMORTALITY" WITH A WAVE OF MY FINGERS." Hectrosious boomed again.
"No mORe... GeT oUt oF mY hEaD!" Steven screamed in agonizing pain, and determination.
"HOW ARE YOU STILL CONSIOUS? YOU ARE BUT A MERE MORTAL."Hectrosious boomed once more.
"Commander! What are your orders?" Ronald yelled.
"ARRRGGG! ORdErS... I'm goInG TO OpEn A poRtAL... gO iN iT!" Steven growled.
"But sir! What about-" Ronald started to say.
"ForGeT ABouT mE! AARRRGG! GeT tO saFeTY!"Steven snapped.
He started to form all of Hectrosious' energy into his hand, forming a ball of dark energy. Even some of Ravens power started leaking out of her. He floated down to the ground, and thrust the energy forward cutting a hole in space itself. The energy expanded to make the hole into a swirling orange, and black gate-way.
"GeT IN... NoW!"he barked at the troops, and Alyson.
"Steven! What about you?" Alyson yelled.
"ARRGGG! RonALd!" Steven hissed.
"Y-yes sir. Alright troops, move out!" he stuttered hesitantly. "Ma'am, I'm sorry I have to do this but you give me no choice." he said grabbing Alyson, and throwing the both of them through the portal, the troops following quickly.
"Steven!" Alyson screamed falling through the portal, disappearing from the dimension.
"Steven, now I hope you haven't forgotten about me." Slade said.
Steven glared over at Slade, and looked back at the titans.
"TitAns, thIs iS yoUr baTtLe, I wIlL iNterFerE nO lOngeR!!" he screamed at them.
He started going through the portal, but Slade grabbed him, and threw him back into the wall.
"Steven, this is your fight. Your not going anywhere." Slade told him.
"RaVen! THe poRTal!" Steven yelled.
"Right!" Raven screamed back.
She then sent her magic in the portal, and held a small portion of the portal from closing.
"GIR! If you don't shut up, I'll dismantle you personally!" I growled.
"AWWW. BUT MIMI, YOUR MY FRIEND! YOU WOULDN'T DISMANTLE YOUR FRIEND WOULD YOU?" Gir
"I... But... Gir... Please just wait till we get back to town, and then you can sing your tallest forbidden head off." I told him.
"HMMM... OKAY!" Gir screamed.
"Gir, why do you scream everything you say?" I asked him stating to get annoyed by it.
Gir thought for a moment, and said "CAUSE MASTA ONLY LISTENS TO ME WHEN I DO!"
'Poor Gir...' I thought sadly.
"Oh..." I said solemnly.
"MIMI WHY YOU SO SAD? DOES SOMEONE NEED A HUG!" Gir screamed.
"What? Oh no, no, no, no, no, no. I don't need a hug. Thank you very much." I said relief boiling out of my mouth as I did so.
"OH, OKAY!" Gir screamed.
"Oh Gir look up ahead. There's the town." I told him.
"YAY! I'MA SING THE COMING HOME SONG!" Gir screamed.
"Shut up Gir!" I screamed irritated.
I looked around at the surroundings, and saw a velvet, and black room.
"WELCOME TO YOUR HEAD... WHERE I AM TRAPPED UNTIL YOU GET ANGRY ENOUGH TO SET ME FREE." said Hectrosious.
"Hectrosious. I want control back." I told him.
"TOO BAD STEVEN, I'M IN CONTROL NOW." he told me.
'RESIST!' I thought.
"ARRGG! GET OUT OF MY HEAD!" I screamed in agony.
"STOP RESISTING, IT'S VERY ANNOYING!" Hectrosious screamed at me.
"AAARRGGGG!" I screamed beyond agony, bordering mental death, but I somehow, by pure luck, and determination, managed to regain control over my body.
"IMPOSSIBLE!" was the last word Hectrosious screamed, before I left my mind.
"Now, are you going to stand there groaning, or are you going to do something?" I heard Slade ask.
Steven shot their energy into Slade, throwing him backwards into a wall.
"TiTanS... I LeaVe thIs fiGHt tO yOU. RaVEn, hElp mE rEoPEn tHE pOrTAl." I growled.
She nodded, and started helping me to open the portal. We struggled, and managed to open it at least a 4th the size of the one I made earlier.
"RaVEn... I caN't tHanK yoU eNoUgh." I told her.
"There's no need to thank me, now go." she told me in monotone.
I nodded, and went through the portal. Do I hear police sirens?
Chapter length: 3,193
I have a confession to make... I have failed to make this chapter longer then the previous one. I do hope that you forgive me for it. I will also be working on another project, that continues this one. I am also sorry that I took so long, it's just that I had writers block. I hope this will not happen again. I'm very sorry for the long wait for such a short chapter.
