Zone teleported away in mid-air, right as soon as he soared a foot away from Veronica. Then, he reappeared and vanished once again, several times, until both of their weapons had been thrown off the field, and they were on the ground, immobile. Stopping on top of some tree, he looked down at them, crouching slightly. "Funny picture." he said, closing his eyes. "Can't you tell how hard I'm laughing on the inside?" In mere seconds, his arms had turned into snakes, and they both rushed towards the two of them, prepared to bite at them.
Veronica stood up immediately, grabbing Emile's hand pulling him up and then running away from the snakes, when finally running into a house and closing the door when Emile ran in. The snakes all slammed into the door and luckily, the door was hard enough for them not to break through.* Holding the door closed tightly, she looked back at Emile "Any ideas!?"
"I suppose we'll start from the beginning..." the Village Leader said, opening his white eyes back up. "Lance, is it? Well, you've been kept in the dark for far too long... but first, tell me; do you believe in a life beyond this one? A better life, without war, and hate?"
"What kind of question is that?!" Lance asked, clearly mad, still.
"I see... well, here you are. Lance, your grandfather was once the Village Leader. Your grandmother and him practically founded The Village of Black Snow, and were the most important people living here. Eventually, of course, your father and mother came along, and had you. Lance, your father was a Village Councilor. By the time your grandfather died, he was supposed to have taken the position, and the cycle would have continued with you. What I'm trying to say is, your father should be sitting here, right now..."
"I know this already... my family used to be of high royalty, we were the heart of the village... what are you trying to tell me?!"
"Be patient..." the man replied, calmly. "...of course, though, the Raigon came in. Yes, the Raigon, the ones who you want to kill, so badly. By now, you were born already, and everything was just fine. But your name wasn't Lance..."
Lance's eyes widened, almost as far as possible. He couldn't even put thoughts into what this man was telling him.
"...Hope. Your real name is Hope. Or, your first name, at least. It's not your name anymore, by the looks of it. You see... on the first Day of Black Snow, when just the Raigon attacked, your mother died protecting your life. Actually, Project Infinity has been alive, even before that eventful day, but it wasn't quite ready. In result, your father became depressed... such a sad little man. I wouldn't be surprised if you've done the same, already. But, nevertheless! That poem that was on that door back there? It was written by him. It's the lock on the door... and the key to opening the lock is the end of the poem, your name; Hope. Well, continuing from that note... here is where the Black Snow Academy comes in, you guys get leads on Project Infinity, same story. Your father renamed you Lance, soon... pretty early too, apparently. But that's the least of importance. Your father, still being a Village Councilor, was in charge of investigating Project Infinity. His partner was Edward. And Project Infinity was just hitting it off, right then..."
"Not a one. Try not to stay too close, if one of us gets it then the other one will as well. You're a rich girl, surely your dad must have SOME guns sitting around - be a good girl and bring me the biggest one." Emile rushed into the kitchen, he was luck to find that on his first guess. Grabbing one of the biggest knifes he could, he stuffed that into his pocket and then went through a few drawers until he found what he wanted. "Got the lighter. In case of a big boom." He smirked.
Veronica went to the basement, and soon ran out as well, carrying a huge gun. "Good enough?" She asked smiling, while handing it to him. She sighed shortly after giving it to him, since it was rather heavy. "I remember Lance telling us long ago.. I think their weak spot is the head, so we basically need to cut it's head off." She said, slowly heading to one of the windows and looking out. She looked through every window, trying to see where he was at the moment.
"Fancy." Zone commented on the mansion. He was floating in the air above it, looking down with his snake eyes. Then, it seemed that everything became completely pitch-black. A huge thud was felt, as a large shadow was casted over the mansion. Zone had turned into his Infinity Form, and transformed in a giant cobra, that wrapped around their entire household. "There's no use in hiding!" he declared, while swinging his head in front of the entrance. "But if you don't come out... well, ha, I'll force you out!" he threatened, tightening his grip on the home.
Emile took the gun and rested it on his shoulder. "Yeah...not my prefered weight but oh-well...later sweety!" He ran to the entrence, kicked down the door and stared at the leviathan. "...I'm here! Do I get a PRIZE!?" He yelled, taking the kitchen out and throwing it right at Zone's larg eyes, and with angels on his shoulder scored a easy impale. "Whoopsy..."
Zone knew that he would just instantly heal from the damage the kitchen knife inflicted, but being unable to pull it out of his eye, the pain lasted. "Well that smarts..." he hissed with his filtered cobra voice, charging his head in and swooping up Emile in his mouth, with one quick attempt. Letting him slide down into his throat for digestion to take it's course, he asked, "Now where's my precious 100?" Obviously referring to Veronica, he poked his head inside of the mansion, looking around for her.
Veronica came running out of the basement towards Zone, with a huge staff with a blade at the end. She attempted to slash him. "What did you do to Emile!?" She shouted while running, unaware he swallowed him..
"You are pathetic." Melody spoke looking down at Kimiko, while punching her at the ground over and over again, like she was a sack of trash. Kimiko finally acted up, grabbing her foot and stopping her from kicking her more "I think it's the other way around..." Kimiko whispered, smiling slightly as some blood poured down from her mouth. She slowly stood up, and Melody let her. But the moment Kimiko regained balance, Melody took a couple of quick steps to her, grabbed her head and suddenly pressed her lips against hers. Kimiko's eyes spread open as she started struggling when she felt the sour taste of poison on Melody's lips. Finally she managed to struggle away. She kept walking backwards wiping her mouth over and over again, while cussing Melody out, while she just stood there, licking her red lips.
