The caped man (Legend, Ace whispered to me) gave them the odds of coming out of this alive and just what they would be fighting. Her lips pursed as she brows furrowed. She thought the chances would be slightly higher. The more she heard of about Tangle, the more she wanted to just run away. They probably couldn’t kill it. Even without thinking too much into it, Mara knew that there was a very high chance she could die from this attack. Her power had never failed to keep her injuries to a minimum at least. Lasers could probably be absorbed, but radiation? She didn’t want to try it. Radiation was what she was most terrified of. She didn’t think she could block it with her shield, and she would die. Ace didn’t have a shield, and he would also die.

It was terrifying...that Ace would be gone from her life. She didn't want this.

Mara harshly bunched the bottom of Ace's shirt into her small fist. She didn't want this.

She could feel it, the danger. It's coming.


The monster that crashed into their area immediately after Legend finished his overview of Tangle. Mara felt herself being scooped up by her brother’s trembling arms as she heard a roar. Everything seemed to slow down, everything was a blur, it was chaos.


If possible, that roar made the situation even more terrifying as time shifted into a faster pace.

"Freischütz down. Laser Hawk down." It was ending. "Intellast down." There were people dead already. "Thirty-seven in critical condition. Two-hundred-and-ten capes with radiation poisoning." Eveyone was dying. Things were disentegrated into nothing, people were screaming, others fell without a sound. Couldn't she do anything?! If only she cou-

. . . Piiiiiiiiiii. There lied the Black siblings of Capetown, side by side. Mara didn't know what happened, but she saw her brother's terrified face as the high pitched sound persisted in her ears and a murky robotic voice called out...

"Wind Breaker down."

It was hard to breathe and hard to see, but she could at least move her eyes down to her brother's non-existence body. She could feel the pressure building up in her chest, that emotion she hadn't felt in so long. Her mouth opened, but no sound emerged as her silent tears rolled sideways and dripped to the ground. Mara could feel the large ball of blue gas hovering around her, waiting to be released at an enemy.

But she didn't want to live anymore.
