Kaji caught up to everyone. She had collected a few of the black snow's weapons aswell. "Haha BLEH!" she stuck her tongue out at a few with their hands shot off. "Hey! Wait for me guys!" She called after them trying to catch up with Veronica, Edward, Emile, Phil & Lance.
"You guys suck!" Lance shouted, running down a long hallway with everybody. "We're here to prove our innocence of not being murderers so we can save Tara, and you murder more people! What kind of mad logic is that?!"
"Not so loud! If anybody hears us, there's no way we'll be proven innocent! And we can blame any deaths on Emile and Phil! Not even the Village Councilors can throw them in jail, it takes the ranks of a Village Elder!" Edward said.
"That still doesn't make it okay to senselessly kill other innocent people!" Lance came back at him as they all arrived in one gigantic room. Coming to a stop, Lance looked around, amazed. "Is this... it?" he asked, looking at the Village Councilors.
"SECU-" One elder shouted before he was shot in the shoulder by Emile.
"Shut up." Emile said in a annoyed tone. "Now listen here. You're CRAPPY investigations have somehow got all these people in a huge mess. It all started with a murder they did not commit. Now. Give them a pardon or at least put them in jail so they aren't constantly getting shot at. They're 15. They shouldn't be exposed to this kind of horror." Emile said, walking to all the doors and locking them.
Kaji ajusted her goggles and shoved her hands into her pockets rocking back and forth on her heels. "Hmmm~" She had already hid the gun and her weapons pretty good on her, her shovel seem to magically just dissapeared aswell.
A sweat drop ran down the side of Lance's head as he growled lightly, looking amongst all of the Village Councilors. Then, his eyes then repositioned their focus over to someone familiar. Standing at their level, in front of all of the Village Councilors, was the principle himself. Gasping, Lance pointed at the man, shouting, "It's you!"
"You rotten insignificant piece of trash! How dare you address me as that! Do you know who you're talking to?!" the principle bursted out at Lance, seemingly putting up an act.
"What the lleh did you just call me?!" Lance asked, angrily running over to the principle.
"Lance, stop!" Edward called out to him, not moving from where he stood.
"Stop, now, or I'll shoot!" the principle threatened him, pulling a gun out from his suit and aiming directly at Lance's head.
Stopping out of pure fear, Lance glared at the principle, sweating nervously. "What the lleh are you even doing here?!" he roared. "You're the one who killed that man in the first place!"
"Arrogance! Silence yourself before I end your life right here and now!"
"That will be enough!" one of the councilors announced.
"That's right it will!" Lance exclaimed, jumping at the principle.
"Die!" the principle sentenced him to death, pulling the trigger of his gun.
"Hope!" Edward called out, reaching helplessly out to Lance.
When the principle attempted in killing him, Lance had succesfully managed to move his hand out of the way, changing the direction in which the bullet was shot. However, even though it missed Lance... it had still made a clear target as it raced through the air: Edward. Soaring past everybody, the bullet landed a perfect hit in Edward's chest, causing him to drop to his knees as blood squirted out furiously. Not even able to see what happened, though, Lance smacked the gun out of the principle's hand, then punched him right across the face, sending him into the wall behind him. "SSAHOLE! WHAT DID YOU DO?!" Lance asked, slamming down his hands against the wall as he stared into his eyes.
"So not-" Out of the stainglass windows came 4 TbT men, the most elite of them, repelled through the windows and fired long-range electric guns at Emile and Phil. They hit their mark and both of them were down.
"Sorry. These two are out of their place. If you want to trial them, you'll have to put in a request with lord Dynamo." They said kindly to the council. After they picked up the bodies and two latters came down to the broken windows. The two raced to them, hopped onto them and flew away by helicopter.
"Emile?! Phil?!" She watched helplessly as the two where carried away. Knowing she couldn't do anything for them, was the worst for her.
I knew it! I KNEW IT! I knew something bad was going to happen once we got here!
Kaji rushed over between the Principal and Lance, and grabbed Lance by both of his*arms, since*she couldn't reach his shoulders*"Listen to me." The small girl said calmly "Lance! Are you with me?!" She seemed like a whole diferent person now. "He isn't worth it! Are you listening?! Don't do anything crazy. We're already convicted for murder, we don't need any other unnessacary burdens, weighed upon us. Plus, we still need to go and get Tara." The girl said hoping that mentioning Tara would make him snap out of it. "This is just going to slow us down." She smirked alittle "Don't you wanna stop being Clark Kent and*trying giving*Superman a chance*by saving*her? Trying to kill or injure the principal isn't going to help us in any way whatsoever. I know how you feel, I just wanna rip out his intestines and strange him with them, but I can't can I?*I have to be calm, and you do to. Edward needs you right now...." She said looking past Lance at Edward sadly. "He's still breathing, I don't think*he has*much time.... Go to him." The blue haired girl said gently pushing him towards him.
She looked straight*back at the Principal tears forming at the corner of her eyes. "You should be ashamed of yourself, you sick f***"
"Hmm..." Tara examined the pic, than just shrugged "Her eyes are the same, but she has blue hair, not red. Although, she has one white hair strand... Do you know her, or something?"
"..." Veronica, who was standing in the complete back, just stared up at the sky watching the helicopter fly away. Clenching her fists, she shoved Lance and Kaji out of her way slightly. She looked at the principle, and suddenly just spat on him. "I never did such a thing in my life. But you deserve it."She turned her look to the rest of the councilors "ALL of you." She whispered to herself. "I'm not wasting anymore time here." On her way out, she bent down to Edward, picked him up,than opened the door with her foot and walked away. She stopped somewhere in the long hallway, setting Edward down. She checked his pulse, and it was still there, but slowly fading away "...Edward?"*
Lance watched in horror as Veronica exited the room with Edward. Not even realizing it, he was holding his breathe, silently waiting, as if he expected them to come back. Then, finally regaining consciousness, he clenched his fists, running up to the two of them.
"...heh. ...doesn't look like I'm going to last much longer... does it?" Edward asked, mumbling to Veronica. The whole time, blood poured rapidly out from his wound, spilling down his body and onto the floor.
"Edward!" Lance called out, approaching them. Kneeling down next to Veronica and Edward, he hesitated for a moment, seeing how severe and fatal his injury was. Then, he just looked at Veronica, asking, "He did it... didn't he?" Since Lance wasn't facing anybody when he moved the principle's hand out of the way, he didn't even realize what had happened until now. "...he's the one who shot Edward? Right?" he repeated.
Veronica looked at Lance, replying with a short nod "Yes..." She saw exactly what happened, and if Lance hadn't moved the principle's arm, Edward wouldn't have been shot. Though, she decided to keep that to herself. She turned her attention to Edward than. "No, no it doesn't...You know, we are all very thankful of what you did..."
