After a few moments of silence, Emile fired the gun and that pierced through Zone. But before he could head, he fired again and again, ripping Zone up. When he ran out, Emile transformed into a large whale which made Zone open up and tear apart. When he reverted back to normal, Emile coughed rapidly and without pause. "G-gosh...!" He cursed, stumbling out of the horrible mess with his hand around his throat.
"EWW!" Veronica squealed in disgust, dropping the staff. She ran over to Emile, and was about to place her palm on his cheek, but just pulled her hand back scratching her neck "Are you okay?" She asked, observing him.
"I...hate... you...." Kimiko mumbled, coughing up some blood suddenly. "I can't... feel... me feet..." She whispered, falling down suddenly. Melody started laughing devilishly while approaching her. Once she reached Kimiko, the girl suddenly took the sword out from Melody's case, and stabbed her in the chest, piercing right through her heart. She stood up with ease, since she was just faking it earlier. "Heh. Game over, witch." Kimiko said, pushing the sword deeper. Melody stared at her full of rage, but was helpless. Still, she smiled that horrible evil smile as always "I might be done.. but I know you are going down with me. You are still full of poison, it's just a matter of time." Kimiko just sighed, while violently taking out the sword and letting the woman fall down in front of her feet. "It doesn't matter. I can die peacefully now." She stabbed the sword through Melody once more, finishing her off. She stared down at her with no emotion in her blue eyes. Slowly, she turned around and began limping away, leaving a trail of blood behind herself.
Zone degraded back into his human appearance, holding his stomach in with his arms. The hole Emile had created was much smaller when he went back to normal, but blood was now pouring rapidly out of his chest, all over the black snow he stood on. "I won't forget this..." he whispered, disappearing for the last time. Poison, laying unconscious in the snow, basically dead, was then visited by Zone. Zone only picked up his soaked body, however, and vanished once again, with him.
Kaji walked back inside to check up on Yang and Neo "Is he doing alright?" She asked startling the two.
Neo looked up just finishing with sewing the wound and cutting the string off. "He is going to be fine! I thought you were going to go and help your friends?" The blue haired scruffy man asked confused.
"Well, I was, but then I got worried and I didn't want to leave you two alone just incase you know, something bad happened." She walked over to the coffee table and sat down on it making up an excuse. "Plus, I couldn't find them while I was out there."
"Alright. Well, My work here is done. I am going back to bed." He yawned taking off the gloves and rubbing his eye "I'll get Yang a wheel chair later on." and with that he exited into his bedroom completely oblivious to what was going on around him.
Two men swung down from a helicopter, they worked fast and with no words, two syringes pierced Emile's flesh and with shock and awe, he stood no chance. He was out in a few seconds. The two were repelled up the ropes, taking Emile with him.
"Ah, miss Veronica! Terribly sorry about taking your little firend away. But, you know, rules and crap." Dynamo cackled, walking up behind her and pat her on the shoulder.
"Awuh." A cheeky grin spread on Yang's face "You are worried about me~ Cute." He stuck his tongue out, but soon the happiness on his face faded. "Kimiko is going to be so mad when she finds out I have been paralyzed...I hope she is alright..." He spoke in a lower tone.
"WHAT THE!?" Veronica screamed, turning around to him. "Where are you taking him, bastard!?" She shouted, clenching her fists, holding back her rage.
"Like I said. I was worried about both of you. Geez." Kaji looked out the window "It's your fault for being an idiot. You shouldn't have left your guard down so easily like that. You were so irresponsible." She clenched her fist "I would be mad at you too."
"Aside from the defenses, I also have to keep our prisons in-check. You people ARE felons, but some are more important than others. Like Emile. From what I read, he is more dangerous than you or the others." Of course he meant that he had powers. The elder just put his hand on her head and messed up her hair. "He'll be back. When/if we survive this." With those ending words, he left, not taking the helicopter but walking away on foot.
"To wrap things up, Hope, this is how the story ends... it didn't take long before Project Infinity figured out that your father and Edward knew of our existence, and were researching us. So, the true head of Project Infinity, Zero-Zero, came to The Village of Black Snow, himself. I know you've been to Nevermore, Hope... the land of the Raigon. Well, once Zero-Zero came here, he only intended on killing the ones in charge of the investigation, and then leaving. But things didn't exactly turn out that way..."
"What... what do you mean? ...how do you know all of this? WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?!"
"Hope! I'M ZERO-ZERO!" the Village Leader announced, jumping out of his chair, onto his feet. "The truth is, I was the exact one who murdered your mother on the Day of Black Snow... when I came here the second time to eliminate your father, your grandfather unfortunately showed up. You, and the whole village, in-fact, were told that he died of old age... and that your father disappeared, that same day. Well, that was the lie... I had no choice but to kill your grandfather, the Village Leader. And after that, I brought your father over to Nevermore, after realizing the potential he had!"
"You BASTARD!" Lance bursted, running at Zero-Zero, fearlessly.
"Your father is not the man you think he is! He became the first Zero-One! Actually, that woman you know as Zero-One now, killed him to obtain that title!"
"STOP IIIIIT!" Lance screamed, reaching the man, and throwing his fist at him. In the blink of an eye, though, Lance dropped to his knees, unconscious.
"Wait!" Veronica cried out, running after him. "This isn't fair!" The girl started feeling tears fill up in her eyes, and she didn't bother holding them back from falling down her partially blood stained face. "I said wait!" She kept shouting after him, but it was useless since he obviously did not listen. She just weakly fell down to her knees, covering her face with her palms, and crying aloud. She found herself surrounded with dead bodies of black snow soldiers, raigon...Completely alone, once again.
"Lance!" Tara rushed over to the boy, kneeling down and slapping him lightly a couple of times "Hey! Heey!" She froze in a second, as her look drifted up to Zero Zero... and she was petrified with fear.
"Sorry..." Yang said lowering his head "I was too blinded.. with protecting you people, wanting to be a hero, and all that bull crap. But my stupidity cost me my legs now." He said, actually wiping his eyes with one sleeve. He wasn't taking all this that well as he seemed.
