'Hahaha! I can't believe you actually went through with it! I don't know which one of you two is more brain dead, You or the Doe man!?' Ella went into a laughing fit, Cackling then stopping, Then continuing again, Cece was sure she was just being annoying."S-Sorry Doc....," Cece bowed her head, Dr Stabler shook his head, Blood still dripping from his temple."It's...." he groaned, ".....Fine, it'll heal up, Not he first time I've relinquished a piece of myself.... First time a piece of flesh was also needed.... whatever do you hope to achieve with this.... if you don't mind my asking," The Terramite got to closing up the wound where his left horn used to be.'It's a for protection Doll.... anyone worth their salt in potion making and Meta-Medicine should be able to craft this..... elixir,' Ella explained."Em..... I read in a book that your horn is a great ingredient for a protection elixir!" Cece explained while she crushed the horn with a mortar, 'Wow.... it's a lot more fragile th
"...... That's where we keep the medical supplies!" Cas pointed to a cupboard in the corner of the room, "Pixie dust, Antibiotics, Antiseptic, Cotton, The whole package.... next is the-""Gym? Supply room? Lab? Bedrooms? Toilets? Engine room? Castor you've already me shown me these places..... TWICE! I know where everything is....." Lucy protested."Sorry...." was all Cas could muster."No.... I... I guess y'all don't fight that too Often, do you....?""......"Lucy propped herself off a desk, her legs hung from the side, She dangled them and swung them aimlessly as she stared round the vessel."I had..... Foster siblings growing up, Lots! we weren't really close and those I managed to form a connection to.... well, they got adopted by Folks who gave a crap about them soon after.... I... I was not so lucky....."Cas stared at her, Her green eyes filled with envy when she met his, "I'm...""Don't say sorry.... please don't say that.... it's kinda irritating when folks throw that word a
She punched the wall so hard her right fist began to bleed."Shit! Shit! SHIT!" Cecelia cursed, She continued punching her hand against the wall until she heard the bone crack, she didn't stop, nor did Her brother move to stop her, He simply stared at his sister until she paused to catch her breath.Cecelia looked down at her hand, Black and purple, raw from torn flesh, Bone on the knuckle slightly exposed, Yet the pain didn't register to her for some reason, Adrenaline? Emotions? Nerve damage? She didn't know nor care she put her left hand on the wall and pressed her head against the wall, Haggard breaths and tearful eye.Lucy moved to heal her but Cas stopped the mousey girl, "Don't.... if she wants to hurt herself, Don't put another Cecelia I'm pain because of her selfishness," He muttered.Lucy frowned, "You don't care about your own sister's wellbeing?" She was Aghast.He shook his head, "I care, I care all right... I wish she care about her own wellbeing too...." He snapped, His
"Thank you all for gathering here, I know we're all restless ever since the invasion, First Thatch, then The Legacy.... I understand your frustrations, I understand your misgivings, I understand it all.... that is why I propose we abandon the renovations for White Berry facility for the next foreseeable future, Any objections?" Vince the Ebony Orc spoke.Cas, Cece, Lucy and what was left of the onsite team were attending a meeting in the war room, People were beaten, tired, Haggard, stressed out and worse! On top of all that They awaited Lady Eureka's verdict on the future of this facility but most had already decided it's fate in their hearts, the lack of opposition on Vince's proposal was proof of that.".... It is shame, This Facility once stood for something, It was a safe haven for unorthodox research as well as a rehabilitation centre for Our Clansmen who have lost.... the flavour for our work," Vince sighed."I'll inform Lady Eureka of our decision during the briefing tonight!
Silent as a shadow.The figure moved between the ranks of The Legacy, Dancing and darting around erratically, Yet Taking care not brush against a single soldier, The figure made their way towards the front of line, just a few metres behind the floating ship.The figure gave the Crystal Treant a brief glance, before looking for their path going forward.Clear as The Crystal Blue Sky.The figure saw, Four Lay lines, Four paths, Four targets, the closest one a 20 metres to the their left, The figure nodded in satisfaction, They skipped and whistled nonchalantly as they headed along the way to their target.They'd tucked and roll every now and then to avoid the moving bodies of Legacy members or the occasional Hell fire from The Crystal Treant, It was Callous, Chaotic, and Crazy on the Side of the Legacy, Even with their Multipliers, even with their Ashen Priests, Facing a Crystal Treant, even a single one was suicide.It mattered not to the figure, If the soldiers wanted to be ignorant,
Cecelia leaned over and planted a kiss on her brother's cheek, "I love you sooooooooooo much Cas! I thought I was gone!" She cried hugging her brother tight."Cece I'm trying to concentrate!" Cas tried shrugging his sibling off, "And you reek of Alcohol! I thought you quit!" Her brother focused aim on the oncoming forces, He fired a warning shot at them, The battalion gave pause.The Legacy broke off into smaller segments, what seemed like an army of 450, tripled, then quadrupled and they kept dividing indefinitely until they seemed to take over a large portion of the snowy landscape, 'Either they have Multipliers with them or they're Psychic projectors, Geez!' She looked over her brother, he was frowning."A moment of weakness is all it was," She lied smoothly, Half to ease him, half to distract him, it backfired."A moment of.... weakness? is it cuz of-""No! no... God no! I.... I was just caught up in the moment is all, Just.... let's just focus on blasting those Bigots to kingdom
"Owwie....." Lucy clutched her right hand, "My hand fingers like it's on fire! What the hell!?" She kissed her fingers.... or rather what was left of them in a futile attempt make the pain go away."Can't you use your powers on yourself?" Cas wiped the blood off his face and leaned over placing a hand on Lucy's shoulder, She Glanced up at him, He moved his hand and wiped the traces of blood on her face, She frowned."It's..... harder, a lot harder on myself, like trying to solve a 7th dimensional Hexadecimal cube made by aliens Hard!" She shook her head, groaning, Was it from the pain or the stress?"I'm sorry...." Cas muttered.She shook her head again, "I.... It's okay, I'd be dead by now if not for you.... that... that was kinda stupid of me charging in like that,"Cas chuckled, Lucy smiled, "You're a bad influence on me! I'm already doing stupid shit like this! In an hour you'll probably have me sawing members off-" she trailed off, kicking one of the Legacy corpses, "-Our rude gu
Cecelia trembled with absolute joy, she looked over herself, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Obsidian, Furs of the finest quality and silk! Lots and lots of Silk! She felt like a Duchess, no a queen! All that was left was a crown befitting of her regality, She hummed a melody of sweet, sweet joy as she stared off into the distance.22 Gold chains round her neck, 11 silver bracelets, 5 platinum rings, An artificial Obsidian pair of Teeth..... 2 Fur cloaks, Grey and red, And 14 silver silk scarfs! the ones that didn't fit in her pouch she wore on her.She hugged herself close, Her eye filled with pure bliss, she ignored the furious glares she got from losers she gambled with, She ignored their Deathly auras, she ignored them all.She settled her eye on the participants in the ring, An emerald coloured harpy who was being wailed upon by a Snow Ogress, "C'mon! C'mon! C'mon!" She clenched her fists and grit her teeth, Her eye dilated, Her skin filled with goosebumps, she licked her lips wildly.Th
