Altid crossed his hands behind his back and smiled. His undead minions were taking care of everything, they had Kacey and Kanade cornered and had killed at least five or six rebels, he wouldn't even have to lift a fing... Looks like he thought too soon because in the blink of an eye arrows that seemed to be made of light destroyed all the creatures around Blue. And soon enough one of the arrows was pointed at him by a faceless, genderless figure that could only be Red.

"For fuck's sake." He mentally cursed because the hit from the arrow has not only blinded him but made him unable to move and therefore unable to open his mouth to yell out all the curses running through his brain. The fact that a mere Colour could mobilize him so quickly made Altid feel humiliated and no one,no one makes Altid Immitis feel humiliated and get's away with it.

When he finally regained his senses he was met by a thick cloud of smoke that left him disoriented once more. Faintly he heard Kanade say "I hope your ready for this." and as it was said in quite a hateful manner he assumed she was going to charge at him. Of course Grey wouldn't be Gray if he didn't master the art of escaping from a tricky situation. He spun around to where Green's voice was coming from only seeing the contours of her body. "You'll have to try a little harder than that to get me." Kanade was now close enough to properly see him so he smirked and even took the time to wink at the girl before a wall made entirely of the undead appeared between them. Just a moment before the barrier appeared he quickly drew out his gun and shot. As Altid was in a hurry when he dressed he put on the gun belt backwards so now he had to draw the gun with his left hand, seeing as he was right handed the aim in his left hand was quite bad. If he miraculously managed to shoot Kanade the wound would have been just a measly scrape on the shoulder but he didn't have time to worry about that. With the wall still there he ran in the opposite direction.

In these past moments Black managed to disappear into oblivion and he hadn't seen Takano or Cassius in the first place. Where were those two idiots? As much as Altid hated to admit it he couldn't take on three Colours without any backup. As he ran towards a conveniently placed button that alerted all of Seele's army that the Colours have infiltrated the complex he saw the most unlikely sight ever. It was Eien just standing there bleeding as a rebel, who managed to get a weapon from a dead soldier, had him at gunpoint. He wasn't sure it was illusion or reality that he was seeing.

He wrote in the code and pressed the button, another,hopefully better prepared, troop should arrive in a few minutes. With some uncertainty in his movements he took the gun into his right hand. The man in front of Eien dropped his gun and fell to the floor. He couldn't see clearly but it seemed the man he had shot in the abdomen was still alive, laying at Eien's feet.

Kanade Hoshizora


Kanade was approaching closer and closer but was caught off guard, "You'll have to try a little harder than that to get to me.", Grey gave her a smirk accompanied with a wink. He darted off as Kanade hit the ground then jumped back, seeing a army of non-human things made a defensive wall covering Grey. Kanade smirked, the insanity struggling to consume her.

"You bastard you won't get away so easily!" Kanade was faced with these non-human things as she yelled out to grey. Soon a sharp pain distracted her in her leg and brought her back to rational thought. He had the nerve to wink at me! Shit I think I'm bleeding too! Kanade felt her leg, it wasn't anything major but even so it pissed her off. That cocky bastard.

"Blue, a little help." Kanade said, looking for the girl. But realizing she might be on her own she sprung into action, a twisted smile creeping on her face.



"Look it's that girl!" A boy pointed at her. Kanade was sitting in a small alley, relaxing her back on one wall and her feet up on the other. "Get lost kid.", Kanade took a drag on a cigarette and boredly looked at the two small boys. "Why? aren't you lonely?" The boy stepped forward. Kanade sighed, closing her eyes then opened them back up, staring at the boy, receiving his future.

"You will be dragged away by your mom who will later warn you about talking to strangers. She'll tell you about how I'm a freak of nature, a genetic mistake.... a monster. For the time you'll brag to your friends about how you met me and survived. After you got your small fame you'll forget about me." Kanade spoke, the boy stepping back in fear.

"Sora, Claude get away from her!" Their mom came and had to drag the two away due to the boy staring back at her. Kanade gave a small laugh, running a hand through her boy-short grey hair. A grey and black cat jumped on her lap and Kanade smiled softly then petted the cat. "But I'll always have you won't I? Yukari." Kanade said softly.


Kanade wielded the Ak-47 in one hand and the Submarine gun in the other. She shot at the creatures the best she knew how. Throwing one gun in the air she kneed one of them knocking it down then raised her hand to catch the gun. Had these guns been any other weapon she couldn't of performed this feat.

There were still more and more. She knocked one in the head with a gun and shot it with the other. There were three down but more to go, and she wasn't planning on letting Grey get away so easily. Blue needed to hurry. At this rate she wouldn't be in any condition to fight, she was certainly a bit scratched up. "Damn you Grey" . Kanade took down two more and was huffing at the gymnastics she was being required to perform. Dodging under one grotesque claw kicking another and jumping in the air, landing on another. She was breathing hard at this point. Blue...

Kacey saw a woman in black out of the corner of her eye as she ran. She began to feel a tingling in her right leg, but a bright light flashed in the same general area and it went away. Good. No worries yet, but I should probably keep an eye out for more Primes, she thought. Running from hallway to hallway, Kacey searched in vain for...what was she looking for? Her knives could be anywhere, a warehouse, with Brown, or... "Crud. Well, that was moronic," she muttered, skidding to a halt and turning to head in the direction she had come as she realized that they had probably been on one of the soldiers guarding her cell. Why didn't I think of this before? Moron, moron, moron. She sent a telepathic message to Kanade: I screwed up. I'll be back in a minute to see what I can do. If you can find my knives, that would speed things up. Thanks.

All I Want

"But if you loved me, why'd you leave me?"


She ran after Altid, dodging the undead and pushing aside the guilt of leaving Kanade to fend for herself. She would be alright. Kanade was strong.

"STOP!" Her cry pierced through the darkness like a sprint of light. It took a split second for her to decide between the three, lunging at Grey the Killer, attacking Eien whilst he was injured and have a higher chance of killing him than she ever had before, or saving the man at their feet.

It wasn't even a difficult choice.

Her glowing body dashed towards the fallen man, impossibly fast. Eve clutched him to her chest, gently cradling his wounded body as her light seemed to encompass him too. She stood between Eien and Altid, her gaze fierce behind the obsidian mask that hid it.

"Stop," she enunciated softly. A swirl of silver and gold light spun around her and the rebel she protected, the rebel who was bleeding to death in her hands. It was all too familiar and for a moment, confusion overwhelm her, distorting the figure she held so tenderly, making it bigger, heavier, colder. Familiar.




"Jin, please. Oh god, oh god, oh god. No, please, please. Wake up. You can't just die like this!" His warm grey eyes watched the stars above them and for a brief moment, she convinced herself this was one of their stargazing nights. He was just lost in thought. He was there, in her arms, alive, alive, alive.

But the blood from her dead comrades trickled towards her and the life from his body joined the pools of red, like rivers running into the ocean.

He was gone.

"If you love me," she whispered. "You won't leave me."

Her words were heard by no one. She felt like the lives lost here, her voice, were trees that'd fallen in a forest where no living being wandered. She was the only one who knew 13 survivors were now dead, and who'd killed them. Eve was alone.

She closed her trembling hands over her lover's eyes and pressed a kiss onto the top of his head, the necklace he'd given her gently brushing his cheek as she did. Salty liquid shattered on his serene face and she watched in awe and horror as it glowed crimson and morphed into red.

Eve lifted her head and looking around as the blood and bodies around her burst into flames as if the sun itself had devoured them. It was good, she thought. It would've been near impossible to dig 13 graves. Emotionally, anyway. This made sense, she thought. A small act of defiance. Eien tainted them and the fire cleansed them.

She looked down at the body she held one last time, before the sun devoured him too. She vowed to continue what he'd started. She would find the Colours, she would free the world of Eien, and she would be the man she'd lost.

"You're alive," Eve whispered.

And it was true.




"They're nothing to you," she said, looking fiercely into the lavender and crimson eyes. "Just a bunch of pesky rebels you don't need or want to... Waste your time on," she said carefully, using the words Eien had so briskly used on her after destroying nearly everyone she'd ever loved.

She struggled to keep her voice steady, her body relaxed but aware, and her expression still - not that they could see it - as she knelt so close to Eien. She let the calm of control slowly overwhelm her, and then she no longer had to pretend. Eien was as mortal as she was. He had his weaknesses, and she would find them. For now, it didn't matter, anyway. Eve didn't want to see any more people die. How many rebels were left? A dozen? She hadn't seen the bodies of any children and allowed herself that small measure of relief. They were resourceful and quick.

Shouts trickled from the edges of the building.

Eve's eyes widened for a brief moment as she recognised it as the sounds of fighting between a new wave of soldiers, and another wave of rebels. They'd come to help.

Pride swelled in her chest but it was quickly devoured by a deafening curse in her mind. Their blind faith in Red and "his" ability to protect them, for once, was more of a weakness than a strength. How many lives was she responsible for? How many deaths?

"We won't put up a fight, you won't have any more ugly holes in your ceiling or blood stains on your plush carpets," she said dryly. They would accept the terms, she told herself. Of course they would. She was responsible for nearly every annoying bank robbery, every crash of a council meeting, every rebel group that spawned and every drop of poison in their food or crashing of their buildings. "Let the rebels and my Colours go, and you can have any one Colour of your choice." Eve forced the words from her mouth, through her distorting mouthpiece, and into the air for them to hear, a crackling, odd and genderless mix. "You can have me."

Kanade Hoshizora


Kanade nodded, getting the message from Kacey, but suddenly she stopped cold in her tracks at the words that came from Red's mouth, she was going to give up a colour? What if they don't want Red? What if they want Orange, or Pink or Yellow or Blue or even me... Green. Impossible, they couldn't possibly take one of us. Red is supposed to be the strongest and If they took anyone...

Kanade rushed by Red's side, or attempted to. She was stopped by those pesky things Grey left, luckily there was only one remaining. Kanade quickly finished it and then ran to Red. This was the woman who saved her, who protected her. She was Kanade's home along with the rest of the colours. Red couldn't leave, she simply couldn't. If Red left Kanade was sure everyone else as loyal as her would risk their lives trying to save her. If it came to it, Kanade would become a Prime to protect her.

"No. Red! Please, we can escape! Don't-!" . Kanade was unusually emotional and at a loss for words. Had it been anyone else she probably would of told them they were a coward for giving up so easily. But Red couldn't go. She didn't want any of the colours to go either. "Red," Kanade had calmed herself down by now, "Any Colour they take, I won't abandon. That's a promise." Kanade gave a cold look to Red.

A soldier fights for honor and home. People who abandon these things are trash. I understand the situation you're in Red, you're responsible for every death. But even so, I refuse to abandon my fellow colours, and my family!

Takano Hiroki


Takano smirked at a rebel, he was shouting at Takano. "That bastard Eien stole my family! He's evil! He's brainwashing you!". "Is that so?" Takano let out a small laugh. Suddenly his eyes were sharp and smirk was a frown. "Nobody is allowed to talk about Eien like that. Suffer a miserable death! Damn idiot, I joined of my own free will. Wind grow sharp and tear this man to shreds!"

The man was instantly cut up, screaming in agony. He ran in circles, foolishly trying to escape the wind. Takano decided to move onto bigger prey, a colour. The first person that caught his eye was green. She assumed that she was Grey's to handle and moved on. Blue was running away and chasing after her would be too much work for someone he didn't recognize as a worthy opponent. Orange was his next thought since Pink and Yellow we're nowhere to be found.

He didn't get the chance to do anything before he'd noticed Eien Grey and Red. Leader's a big boy, he can handle it. Besides he has Grey with him. "Let the Rebels and my Colours go, and you can have any one Colour of your choice. You can have me." Any Color, including her? If we were being practical she's not the best Idea, if the colour's are as loyal to her as we are to Leader then- "No Red! Please, we can escape!.........Red. Any Colour they take I won't abandon. That's a promise." Kanade confirmed Takano's thoughts.

They won't let Eien take a their leader sitting down. I can respect that. But I wonder, if Red ordered her to stand back would she? Well, would I stand back as Eien or Ven were being taken even if Eien ordered me to. Eien's word is law but.... The point is that Red wouldn't be the best idea of any colour... I doubt that fighting spirit will go so easily, besides, the Colours wouldn't let her just go. Orange, Blue, Green, Pink Yellow... we already have me so Yellow isn't necessary besides she'd just be closer to my computers. If we were to pick the strongest out of the remaining it would be between Green and Orange, I haven't seen Blue fight once and Pinks power is... But Green would try to escape inevitebly and I'm sure her and Grey would get annoying after a while. But then again Orange would rebel too.

It's all up to Eien now... if he even takes one. And Eien might just kill the person if she's not useful.

Weaving throughout the bodies, living and dead, of Seele soldiers, Kacey searched for the telltale light of glinting steel. She was too far away to hear Red's surrendering words, but when she looked up she could tell from the distraught look on Kanade's face that something was very wrong. "Crap, who's dead now?" she muttered, with a small "aha" when she finally spotted her two long knives strapped to a soldier's belt. Kacey picked them up and spun them in her hands. Somehow, everything felt right now that she had her trusty weapons in her grip. She ducked her head, holding her breath as she slowly moved through the soldiers, close to the ground. Once she got behind that Gray guy....ugh, Gray, with his zombies and unnatural haircolor...could she really even say that when her best, if only friend, had the same shade of hair as him? Oh, well. It wouldn't matter soon, she thought, carefully straightening up at Gray's back with her knives in the position to slash at his throat as soon as he turned around...

"I'm assuming Red is with Kanade and Kacey and facing off against Grey and Black last time I cheeked. As for Elsyia, I have no bloody idea."

Shou sighed, a bit frustratedly with how the situation was going. Of course Shou didn't expect much good luck on trying to raid the Prime's home with such little back up and force, but he didn't really think it'd get that bad, "Well, isn't that just great?" He grinned his normal grin, as usual. Despite any situation, Shou was never pressured that much.

"If you didn't notice, keeping up the pace is going to be a little hard Shou!" Shou turned around at the sound of her voice and noticed that she was, indeed limping. He was so focused on getting off that floor that he almost forgot about Hei's injuries. They didn't seem to help her run as much.

He stopped running opening both his eyes now as he went back to her and showed her his back, bending down as bit as he said, "Get on." But then he realized that her taking action would take too much time off their hands as he just rolled his eyes and picked the girl up, not needing her opinion, "No arguing, kid. We've got to find Eien." He said, a small snicker coming from him as he went forward once more.

It may not have been safe since he was stumbling every few second since he had to focus on both Mayu and his own actions, but it was much faster than having Hei doing the same behind him. In fact, they probably moved twice as fast.

"Hey, be careful! Your tripping all over the place Shou!"

"Shh." He said, stopping for a moment and listening for any signs of running, or even breathing. He heard nothing, so he continued to dash forwards and said, "Don't mind the bumpiness. Mayu's searching the floors above us and I have to concentrate on the both of us, so there's no helping it." Shou said.

In the eyes of his precious doll on one of the middle floors, Shou continued to make Mayu wander the floor, "Damn it, I'm finding nothing." He grumbled, almost childishly before nearly tripping again, this time on a dead body, "Gah- Sorry!" He said, seeming to have been apologizing to both the killed man, who he didn't recognize, and Hei, since it may have taken a toll on her.

Suddenly, Mayu found something. Through her eyes, Shou spotted an open door, and the sound of something inside, who was moving. The blonde haired man stopped in his footsteps, now deciding to focus much more on the doll, "Scratch that..." He nearly whispered, "I found someone."

All the Primes guards should have been down on their prison floor trying to find the other Colours, so who exactly was that in the room? He didn't exactly know, but he knew he had to figure it out.

Now, Shou began to walk just a little bit, at a very slow pace. His breathing became a little heavy at that moment. While Mayu was a doll, it'd still be suspicious to see it lying around where only adults went to. He couldn't let her get seen.

Slowly, the small green haired doll peeked in the small gap between the door and wall. From there, through the green doll's eyes, Shou spotted a man, perhaps his age, maybe even younger since he was short. Without doubts, Shou assumed that he had found Eien's office, "Tch. Just like the coward he really is, he's hiding in his room." He smirked before making Mayu sit just inside of the room so he could watch the man's movements, "I'm going to speed it up! I may have just found the person we're looking for!" He said before doing just as he had promised.

Within a few minutes, he finally found an elevator. He would get some time to rest, and some time to let Hei rest also. The elevator opened up no sooner than he needed it to be. Yelling was heard behind the two as Shou launched around and shot the man directly in the head without even needing to aim. Before it could close, Shou entered and put Hei onto the ground. The floor they had to get to was still quite far away, so they had at least a minute before arriving at their right floor.

Tiredly, Shou slumped to the ground, sitting down and laying both his arms on his knees before turning towards the orange haired girl and said, "We can come back for the others, if we could possibly find them, but right now, we have to get rid of Eien. He's the core of all this trouble, so in the mean time, lets just head there first." His words seemed to have been hesitant since he didn't like the idea of leaving behind his comrades, 'But what has to be done, has to be done.' He thought darkly to himself, his expression seeming to have hardened.

But little did he know that the man Mayu had spotted was not Eien, but his older brother, who Shou didn't even know existed.

"Well, I'm definitely not going to just stay out of the action, that wouldn't be much fun, now would it?" Ava smiled happily. He knew that Ven wasn't one to sit and watch, unlike him,who could do nothing but wait. This made Ava feel a ting of sadness. Maybe Ven had noticed, or maybe not. But anyway she had paused before exiting the door and faced Ava holding a lollipop.

Ava caught the lollipop, which Ven had tossed over to him. A small smile formed on his face as he looked at it. "It may be a while, so there's something I won to give you some company while we're gone." She said and waved as she closed the door behind her.

There Ava was left in the darkness of his room. He knew that he would be in here for a while so he at least thought he should do something. But what was there to do in an this room? Once Ava had actually thought about it, he hasn't been outside lately, "Maybe...if just for little while... I could -"

Ava was about to exit the room, even though it was forbidden. Still it wasn't going to be for a long time, he just wanted to look around. But before Ava could open the door all the way, he was stopped by two of Eien's creatures. Ava couldn't help, but laugh at this little surprise. "Eien must really not want me outside." He had almost made it out. The door was half open, but of course he wouldn't have succeeded...I never do.

Ava looked at the eyes of the two beasts, who seemed to be hesitant toward him. He chuckled at the fact that they had some sense of awareness. Ava knew he shouldn't fight with them,as it would only cause more trouble for Eien. Walking away he sat himself upon his bed. Letting his body flop down lifelessly, he came in contact with the soft fabric of his sheets.

The moon shone brightly on his body, and Ava couldn't help but stare up at its beauty. So pure and white. Something he no longer was. Ava stuck the candy he got from Ven in his pocket, as he just didn't have the heart to eat anything. There he laid on his bed, and watched the moon shine.

Out of nowhere, Avarna felt a sudden stab in his shoulder. Wincing softly he touched the place where he felt the most pain. Once he touched it, he was surprised to feel nothing. Though it hurt, there was no blood or any physical wound to be found.

So is it emotional?

Ava wasn't sure what to think at the moment. He only has an emotional connection toward One person, and that was Eien. So was Eien hurt?

”That’s impossible.” There wasn't anyway Eien could get hurt, and in such a place too. He was too fast. But what if he did?

Ava felt a very uncomfortable feeling over take him. It was a rare feeling that he hadn't felt in a long time: Fear. Ava shivered at using the word to describe his own emotions. It was fine if others had the emotion, but he hated it when he felt it too.

Ava wished he could exit this room, but even if he wanted to he couldn't. Eien had told him to stay inside,and besides by the time he gets over there the monsters would have stopped him. Ava cursed the fact that his little brother had done this, but he couldn't erase the past. But still he had to get out. He had to make sure Eien was fine.

Ava had gotten out of bed, and soon started pacing the perimeter of his large room. Unexpectedly he paused after hearing a small sound outside. Ava stood still. Facing the door, he listened closely to what was outside. He felt something coming. It wasn't big, but it wasn't human either.

The whole room was covered in darkness, the only source of light was the red warning lights, that only flashed once every other second. The once beautiful moon, was hidden behind hideous grey clouds in fear.

It's impossible. No one would be so high up in the building, this was the top floor, and besides the only people who knew of this rooms existence was Eien and Ven. So how could anyone find it?

Ava froze to the sound of footsteps ending at his door. The two shadows around him, started to growl lowly. He hushed them with his finger and then backed away slightly from the door.

Ava was nervous. Why? Because whatever was out there had no emotion at the moment, so he had no idea what it was. Ava backed away from the door as he could hear the movements from outside. He hid in the darkness with his brother’s monsters, awaiting whatever was coming.[/color]

Hei couldn't help but shake her own head as she continued to follow behind the taller, older man. He was just a positive person, no matter the situation. Of course, after she 'whined', as she would call it, about not being able to keep up with Shou's pace, she tilted her head as he turned around to observe her before coming over to her and bending down slightly.

"Get on."

Sure, Hei was being a slow poke, but was she really that slow that he wanted to carry her on his back? Just as the girl was about to open, then shut her mouth, he had picked her up in his arms, her face now a bright red. "O-Oi!" Hei squeaked, cursing the fact she most likely did look like a small child in his arms.

"No arguing, kid. We've got to find Eien." Hearing him let out a small snicker only gained him a pouting girl within his arms, cheeks puffed out and all before she began to hold onto him, not wanting to be dropped by his constant stumbling from his multitasking. Now though, she had to admit, they were going faster then when she was limping.

Allowing herself to be shush as she held in her breathe, only releasing once he began to move once more, mumbling a light "I know."

It was a few more minutes afterwards, Hei's eyes darted upwards to look up towards Shou as he spoke. "Damn it, I'm finding nothing."

"It has to be somewh- Whoa!" Hei's head bobbed a bit harder then normal, her hands gripping the fabric of his shirt to make sure she would bring him down with her as he nearly tripped over the dead body.

"Gah- Sorry!" It was clear the apology was to both, the brutally massacred man to Hei.

"It's fine, it's not like you dropped me down the stairs... You won't drop me down the stairs right?" Hei lightly teased, releasing her death grip on Shou's shirt. When he stopped in his track though, Hei began to squirm in order to sit up in his arms, knowing he had found something just by the way he was focusing on what she believed to be Mayu. Her eyes widened as his soft, quiet voice.

"Scratch that... I found someone."


Not a word came from Hei's mouth as she stared at Shou, his slow pace and heavy breathing only made her anxious to know what, or who he found. Was it really Eien? Or maybe another rebel? No, no rebel would be up here of all places. They'd be escaping... So who was it exactly? Eien didn't seem to be one to be a coward, but maybe her assumptions were wrong this time... But wait, wasn't Eien spotted out by the front gate? So many possibilities had flooded into her head as she was snapped out of it by Shou's grumble.

"Tch. Just like the coward he really is, he's hiding in his room." That smirk of his said he was confident in what he saw all on it's own. For now, she'd give Shou the benefit of the doubt, but if it wasn't Eien, what then? Pushing it aside, Hei didn't even bother to open her mouth. "I'm going to speed it up! I may have just found the person we're looking for!" Hei nodded, her eyes locked ahead of them. The determination in her eyes mixing with the curiosity of her own doubts.

Once they had arrived in a few minutes to the elevator, Hei paid the now dead guard no mind as Shou set her down. As he turned around to look at her once the door was shut, she was busy tightening the pieces of clothe around her wounds. "We can come back for the others, if we could possibly find them, but right now, we have to get rid of Eien. He's the core of all this trouble, so in the mean time, lets just head there first."

"But what if it is not Eien?" It was better to bring up doubts right now then when their at the man's door. It was two against one, and that man... He killed her brother, as well as thirteen of the original colors without even having to break out in a sweat. "... Man..." Hei let out a loud sigh as she stood up, finally on their desired floor as the elevator door opened up. The floor level was oddly quiet with the occasional red light. It was as if there was something hidden up here, something that they didn't want anyone else to find out.

Looking over to Shou with concerned eyes, she tried her best to convey what she suspected with no words. Who knew what was up here with that guy Shou had spotted, but they were about to find out. Every step they made echoed, and the stoic expression on her face, as well as her black pistol being pulled out, spelt out she was now fully aware of her surroundings, her eyes a lit up orange color as she listened for anything within the rooms, eventually spotting the door that was open just a bit.

Once the pair was outside the door, that's when she heard the soft growls on the other side before it went quiet. Still, it oddly didn't strike a twinge of fear like it normally would of. She was calm, for once. She was the co-leader of the Colors, and right now was not the time to freeze and back out like a scared child. She needed to find out who that was on the other side of that door.

By the time Cassius had made his way to where he had previously heard the voices of Altid and Veneficia, as well as what he could assume to be three other voices, two female and one genderless mess, they all seemed to have moved outside towards the front gate. What was the large fuss about though? Jogging at this point, stepping on the dead bodies that were in his path, Cassius quickly made it to the outside world with a frown at the sight. A girl, getting ready to slice at Altid's throat, Eien being shot, a teammate to who he could assume was Red telling the genderless figure she wouldn't leave regardless of what occurred... Wait, had this known figure of resistance... Just offered up his own?

Just hearing about that caused Cassius to struggle to swallow down his urge to smile. This was no matter to smile about when Eien was bleeding. The more he focused on the blood, and how the man with the gun was still on his knees, breathing, the more Cassius began to slowly enrage himself, yet he refused to let it take the better of him. Still just as stoic as before, he let the ground rumble directly under Altid, in his own way to alert the man of the girl, Blue; if Cassius had to assume, behind him. Cassius then turned to stare directly at Eien now, not wanting to say a word at this very moment, and instead leaned against the wall of the building. It was always better to observe in these moments... There was Blue as he was assuming, Green, and Red. Where in the world were the other three though?

Eien let his blade fall to the ground with a thud. He stood there in utter shock,or rather he just didn't know how to take this situation. He only had to glance at his arm once to notice the hole located on it. He could feel the bullet, which was still inside his arm.

Before Eien could think any farther about the situation, his thoughts were interrupted by the sound of another alarm. He sent a slight glance at Altid, who looked more surprised than him. Altid, with swift movements, pulled out his gun and shot at the man. The rebel let the gun slip through his fingers and fell to the floor bleeding.

Eien looked down at the man, who was right before his feet. Eien didn't have time to think, as once again he was halted. This time by a single voice, "STOP!"

The person's cry pierced through the darkness like a sprint of light. Eien watched as Red's glowing body dashed towards the fallen man, impossibly fast. With no movement he watched, Red clutch the bleeding man toward her chest, gently cradling his wounded body as her light seemed to encompass him. Eien could feel her fierce gaze on him.

"Stop", she enunciated softly. A swirl of silver and gold light spun around her and the rebel she protected, the rebel who was bleeding to death in her hands. Eien didn't move. He watched quietly, a familiar feeling overtook him. He couldn't help but feel as if this whole thing happened before. But where?

"They're nothing to you." Pulled from his thoughts. Eien stared at Red, his eyes held no emotion.

"Just a bunch of pesky rebels you don't need or want to... Waste your time on," Each word was said carefully, making them sink even deeper. A small smirk formed on Eien's face. But it held a hint of despair rather then pride. Red had moved closer toward Eien, but he kept still waiting for her to continue.

"We won't put up a fight, you won't have any more ugly holes in your ceiling or blood stains on your plush carpets," she said dryly. "Let the rebels and my Colours go, and you can have any one Colour of your choice. You can have me." Eien didn't say a word. His expression couldn't be seen anymore as he had his whole head downward, not in shame, but rather as if he was in deep thought. Before he could answer he was once again stopped by yet another color, Green.

"No. Red! Please, we can escape! Don't-!"

"Red. Any Colour they take, I won't abandon. That's a promise."

Eien continued to have his head down. What beautiful words everyone was saying. Sweet, Beautiful, Pitiful words. Eien's whole body started to shake, then a loud laugh erupted that echoed across the entire prison. It was dry and forced, and if it wasn't for the bullet in his arm, Eien would have fallen over.

His laughter only lasted a short minute, before Eien' s attention turned toward the soldiers behind him. Silently he gazed at each one with a serious expression. His eyes stopped on a single soldier, who held a small knife, "Give me the knife."

Eien's expression was calm, but it hid something sinister. This scared the soldier as he hasn't seen Eien this way before. He was hesitant to hand him the knife, but broke down after noticing Eien's cold gaze on him. He handed the knife to Eien, and in return he gave the soldier a slow nod, "Thank you."

Without farther words Eien walked toward an open flame, which was sitting on a torch attached to the wall. Lifting up the knife he heated it in the flame. Once Eien was sure the knife was hot enough, he jabbed the knife into his wound making a spine tingling noise.

Everyone was in shock at this bold and insane move, only being able to stand and watch him. Seconds, which felt like minutes, passed until the small bullet popped out of his wound, and onto the ground below. Once spotting the bullet Eien dropped the bloody knife beside it.

A stream of blood dripped from his worsening wound, and even though it looked unbearably painful, Eien's face showed nothing but a simple smile. His gaze focused on Red and the dying man in her arms, and with no words he walked toward the two.

It was in the blink of an eye, leaving no one the chance to take in the situation. It was to fast and quick. Without a single warning Eien had taken up Kira in his right hand, and cut off the rebel's head in cold blood. The color of crimson splattered everywhere covering Eien, Red, and the others who were near the incident. All rebels in the room could read the atmosphere, and one by one they all ran outside with the others, escaping from the prison. No one was left, but the Colours, a few soldiers, and the Primes.

"You are right, Red. They are nothing to me. Just a bunch of pesky rebels I don't need or want to spend my time on. Including that one with no head." Despite his expressionless face, his word's had a hint of delight in them.

"You know, before this whole incident started I thought you would be an interesting opponent...but it seems I gave you to much credit." He let out a sigh as he twirled Kira around in a circle. The guards beside him were very cautious, as to not get hit by the twirling blade.

"Maybe it is my fault for believing a child could be entertaining." Eien pointed the blade at Red's forehead, but slowly lowered the weapon. "You call yourself a leader? What I see is a coward, who can't protect anyone. Do you really believe by offering up your life, that it would solve this whole problem? If you take the punishment for another person that would be enough? What blind foolishness. You're just like a new born child. Helpless and naive about the situation before you." Eien's eyes were unwavering as he stared at Red.

"Let me give you some advice Little Red. Instead of trying to shoulder the mistakes of the people around you, start letting them take responsibility for their actions. You can't safe everyone." Eien turned his attention to the soldier who handed him the knife, "Tell the soldiers outside to let the Rebels pass, and that their Colours are leaving with them also."

The soldier nodded and raced outside, announcing the news. Eien turned to Red once again, "So Little Red. You may leave now. Or do you wish for more people to die? If it was me I would take this opportunity to save yourself and the rest of the Rebels and Colours. Now go. Go while I'm showing you mercy."

Altid was a bit baffeled, everything was happening so fast, Red dashing towards Eien and cradling the fallen man didn't make sense to him. Eien was wounded and shocked he was a perfect target, Red could have easily taken him down but she went to help the man. He stared quizzically first at the masked figure, then at Eien and back to Red again. This was not even remotely how things were supposed to go. They where supposed to get here kill the rebels, capture the Colours and be on their way. One of them, the Primes, getting hurt wasn't an option. The rant in Altid's head was disturbed by the ground beneath him shaking. He was about to turn and glare at Cassius for showing up so late but in the corner of his eye he spotted light reflecting of a blade pointed at him.

He stopped mid turn, if he turned around Blue would surely try to slit his throat open. He looked good in a tie but he was sure a Colombian one wouldn't suit him. He swiftly turned around and jumped back to get away from the knives's reach. His gun was pointed at Kacey's forehead and her knifes were pointed at him. Before they got a chance to charge at each other Red's voice was heard. We won't put up a fight, you won't have any more ugly holes in your ceiling or blood stains on your plush carpets. Let the rebels and my Colours go, and you can have any one Colour of your choice. You can have me." Were the Colours surrendering or was Red just bluffing? It would be stupid of Eien to just let them all go, if he captured Red her Colours would surely come to rescue he, it wasn't worth it.

He tried to pay attention to Kacey, in case she suddenly attacked, and Eien's words but they he didn't make much sense in them. It was when Eien spoke to a soldier Altid turned his complete attention to him. "Tell the soldiers outside to let the Rebels pass, and that their Colours are leaving with them also." Was he serious? He could not be. He tightened his jaw and clenched his teeth because if he didn't he would surely yell out his thoughts. "Idiot, what the fuck is he doing?" Of course questioning his leader's actions and calling him an idiot in public wasn't a good idea so he just stood there.

When Eien started talking again he turned his back to him, glanced in Cassius's direction just acknowledging his presence and walked away. He was sure Eien was to busy being merciful to notice him leaving. He called for Sicarius who instantly appeared by his side to make sure no Colours were following him, just in case Kacey or Kanade felt the need to go after him. The light's stopped flashing red and returned to their regular yellow glow and Altid walked down the dimly lit corridor that went in the direction Primes' quarters in the centre of the complex.

Going towards the elevator he noticed the stair doors were open but he didn't give it much attention, a soldier probably forgot to close them in a hurry. Once he got into the safety of the elevator, he sighed and sent Sicarius off without a word, the creature crooked it's head a bit and disappeared.

Altid just needed some time alone to try understanding what the fuck was Eien aiming at by releasing the remaining rebels and Colours.

Gray jumped backwards as he spun around, out of reach of Kacey's intentional throat-slitting. She prepared to run at him when she heard Brown's voice over the intercome. "Tell the soldiers outside to let the Rebels pass, and that their Colours are leaving with them also." What?! But...I was just about to take this guy down! She sighed, and mumbled "Well, I guess I really shouldn't be complaining, but...ugh, fine. At least no more rebels have to go down." Kacey walked past Gray, raising her knife slightly to leave a shallow cut in his cheek. "Remember that for the next time we get a chance to fight, okay, zombie boy?" she whispers before shoving her hands in her coat pockets, waving Kanade over, and heading for the door.

Kanade Hoshizora


Kanade was filled to the brim with anger. Eien was mocking Red, that was something unacceptable. He was going to let them leave? It's like they aren't a threat. I can't just leave. Things need to be settled with Grey and we were doing good so far! Is Eien admitting defeat? No, a true soldier like him has something planned.

Kanade watched as Blue slit Grey's cheek, barely a scratch. Still, Grey was her target and for anyone else to hurt him was something she didn't like. If Grey were to die it was going to be by her hand. I won't say anything but... Grey is mine. He is only allowed to be hurt by me. I need to kill him to get rid of the insanity he causes.

Kacey waved her over and before she left she walked beside Grey. "Try not to get hurt before I can get to you. I'm the person who's gonna kill you. Got that?" . With that she followed Kacey out.

"But what if it is not Eien?" Shou heard Hei ask during their ride up the elevator.

Shou only shrugged and said, "Everyone makes their own mistakes, I guess that'll be one of my own." He said, stretching his arm as he felt the elevator reaching their destination, "Lets just hope it is, and hope that we could kill him before he kills us. That'd be pretty bad, wouldn't it." He laughed a little, but anyone could tell he was pretty uncertain about his decision.

After all, he had the choice to go back down to the prison floor and find the other Colours, who were probably in a lot of trouble, but out of his own selfishness, which no one seemed to suspect, he chose to come back for them when it was over, if he could finish it all off, 'If only that could happen...' He thought to himself before seeing Hei stand after she wrapped her wounds. The elevator stopped and the doors opened.

"Yeah." Shou said, recognizing the hallway, "This is the right one. Come on, I'll get us there. Keep an eye out for anyone else headed this way and stay quiet. I'd rather sneak up on Eien than to run in there with him knowing our presence." He said and proceeded slowly and cautiously. He took note to Hei's injuries, so he kept his pace slow and went a little bit in front of her just incase any threat would come up.

He always knew that the injured had to take safety priority first. No matter how selfish Shou was, he always stuck to this rule.

He covered up his right eye, now seeing two different perspectives; one being that of a small doll sitting in a room with a white haired man, and another being his own eyes. He began to stumble again, but because of how slow he was going, Shou made sure he wouldn't cause my disturbances.

"That door..." Shou said, removing his hand from his eye and pointing to the door near the end of the hallway. He was certain that the door he saw was that one, and so he made his way towards there.

"Oh wait, where do you two think you're going?" A soft voice called from behind Hei and Shou.

The blonde haired man stopped in his footsteps, almost immediately. He even held his breath, without knowing, as he turned his head around. Before the two was a woman with curled black hair. It was obvious that she wasn't normal, and it was obvious that she was a Prime.

Shou growled a bit as he muttered, "Black..."

"So you know of me?" Veneficia asked, a normal smile on her face as she said sweetly, "That's nice, isn't it? Should I give you a treat like the dogs you poor creatures are?" She asked, now having a sorrowful look on her face, but it was clear that the woman had no pity in her eyes. Despite this look, she actually looked like she had a burning hatred, for something, or maybe someone.

Shou glanced back at the door, making a signal to Hei, behind his back, for her to get to the door. If both of them stayed outside, they'd be wasting too much time. But then again, Hei was injured. Still, he had to know who was in there, "At least look inside. Contact me through your mic and get outside. I have a feeling this isn't going to be too pretty if you stay too long."

Veneficia saw his quick look towards the door and she knew who was in there. They probably didn't and suspected it was someone else. Still, she couldn't, and wouldn't let anyone inside. Her expression grew hard as she said, "I won't let you go in there. If you try grabbing for the door, I'll break your arm, understand?" She asked, a dark smile on her face.

"Just go," He whispered to Hei, "As long as I keep this little animal under control she shouldn't be able to get to you. Alright, hurry up." Shou said, giving her a small push back as he pulled out one of his pistols and said, this time to the Prime, "I've always wanted to kill a Prime. Has the time finally come?"

"I'm the same." Veneficia said, "But I've always wanted to kill one of you pathetic Colours. I'm afraid I'll be granting my wish today though, so yours will have to wait for your next life time." She said, focusing her eyes on his, but deciding it'd be no fun like that, so she took out a dagger instead, and began to twirl it in her hand, "Are you ready dear?"

Hei's eyes widened as her head spun around towards the Prime, Black. This wasn't going to be good. They were so close! Annoyance was hidden under her stoic expression, her hands reaching for her own pistols as she knew she wouldn't be getting a word in edge-wise in what to do... This needed to be done, Shou was right.

Her eyes darted downwards towards Shou's signal behind his back, then slowly towards the door. "At least look inside. Contact me through your mic and get outside. I have a feeling this isn't going to be too pretty if you stay too long."

Just as Hei was about to nod and agree, she glared up at Black. "I won't let you go in there. If you try grabbing for the door, I'll break your arm, understand?" Damn, she had caught his glance towards the door?

"Just go," His voice was a whisper at this point. He didn't need to tell her what to do, really, especially when they should stick together when facing a Prime... She needed to get in that room. To face, whoever, and whatever was on the other side. To know who was to blame in reality for her brother's death. Was it the women he abandoned his family for, or the so called 'monster'. "As long as I keep this little animal under control she shouldn't be able to get to you. Alright, hurry up."

"Right..." It wasn't a necessary to answer him, but it didn't matter. "Be careful." She could only hope there was a window within the room for a quick exit plan. With that, Hei had quickly opened the door just enough for her body to slip inside, her speed that of practically a scared mouse, though no such emotions were felt. In felt, she actually felt a little determined as she looked around the room, her eyes now a lit up orange to signal her senses were now improved, seeing an outline within the shadows of the room.

"Perhaps, you can come out?" No, this couldn't be him. Could it? Pistols were drawn, and her back was now against the shut door. "I won't attack unless given a good reason too. Even if you are Eien." It was one hundred prevent true as well. She needed answers before anything else. Even before the Colors. Someone was at fault, be it her brother, Eve, or Eien. Or maybe they all shared partial blame... Hell, thought Hei didn't even want to admit it, it might of been no one's fault in the end...

"Light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak."


Red filled her vision.

Her eyes widened behind her dark mask, her lips parting in a scream that caught in her throat, that was trapped in the haunted woods so long ago. It happened so fast, the man she'd sworn to protect's head dislodging from his spine, that she hadn't had time to react. The lava that normally coursed through her veins felt like a dull ache. She was a hunk of volcanic rock, the remains of something great, she was as she'd been when Jin died, when her family died - hollow.

The shadow of the figure Jin loved.

Eien's words wandered through a fog, drifting through a person too focused on the lifeless eyes that watched her from a head that didn't hold a mind. Not anymore. He'd believed in her. Pledged himself to the Red he thought would free them all. He wasn't the only person she'd betrayed today. At least she knew, if she and the Colours hadn't come, that the death rate would be much higher. It was no comfort.

It was ironic how still her body was, how calm, as she rolled to her feet in one elegant movement. Her physical manifestation could do significantly more than she ever could hope of achieving. She couldn't lead, but her powers could.

"...before this whole incident started I thought you would be an interesting opponent...but it seems I gave you to much credit. Maybe it is my fault for believing a child could be entertaining. You call yourself a leader? What I see is a coward, who can't protect anyone. Do you really believe by offering up your life, that it would solve this whole problem?"

A sharp bark laughter escaped her mask before quickly being swallowed. No, she didn't think offering her life would solve the "problem," she thought his arrogance might. The shock of what he'd done to Kira had faded to the distance - for now - and she knew now that everything was going as she'd planned. She relied on this very strength and weakness of Eien's. He was powerful, both in status and abilities, and that made him foolish. She'd counted on it. She wasn't wrong.

"If you take the punishment for another person that would be enough? What blind foolishness. You're just like a new born child. Helpless and naive about the situation before you. Let me give you some advice Little Red. Instead of trying to shoulder the mistakes of the people around you, start letting them take responsibility for their actions. You can't save everyone. Tell the soldiers outside to let the Rebels pass, and that their Colours are leaving with them also."

A grin graced her features behind the mask.

"So Little Red. You may leave now. Or do you wish for more people to die? If it was me I would take this opportunity to save yourself and the rest of the Rebels and Colours. Now go. Go while I'm showing you mercy."

Mercy? Eien showed no one mercy. This was him being as self-assured as a narcissist could get, underestimating the masses. His arrogance was the only blessing in this God forsaken world.

"Thank you," she said and was glad that the mask distorted her voice, making it crackle, masculine and shrill in an odd dance of every voice to have ever been. Red gave White a nod of respect and appreciation, or so it seemed. She flicked the blood, fragments and liquids of the slaughtered rebel, of the woman who's throat she'd slit, of the dark creatures and the zombies from her mask, blinking her one unseeing eyes and the other glowing gold orb. Let them think what they wanted, that she didn't care for the people she led or that she did. People saw what they wanted, and what they wanted to see and believe was exactly where she wanted them to be.

She spun around and tossed her arm in a glowing arch down the hallway, a wave of light crashing through the building and zigzagging through it in multiple pathways. There were dull roars in the distance as the entrances and exist of the building were ripped open in a gust of wind and shattered architecture. Eien had commanded them all to let the rebels and Colours go but she wouldn't allow for one person who doubted him, who didn't fear him enough, to trap and kill them all. The light tossed aside the monstrous creatures and the Prime's security and backup, not hard enough to give them more than a few bruises, but stern enough to free her people from their grasp.

Her bones felt like a drowning Titanic in the sea of her blood that held no oxygen.

Eve forced herself to stand straight, to turn, to walk, to swing onto the ledge of a shattered window. The cloaked and masked figure that might be Red saluted her enemies and her comrades, before disappearing into the world below.

She smiled to herself as she exited from one of the small ducts that linked her room to the several other cabinet housings that she had installed throughout the unused spaces inside the holdings of the Colours. She climbed down into what was a simple room as far as she was concerned though the others had charitably called it her domain at times but more often than not tended to describe it as a rats-nest of cabling and electronics enough to rival many of the telecommunication exchanges within the great cities, which she took as a complement on her design. When the others had gone out to assault the home of the Primes, which had been foolhardy at best and suicidal at worst, she had elected to remain and monitor their opponents. This had mainly been to ensure that the mission went off without much issue as well as to keep an eye on each of them, since in the heat of battle (which it was most likely to become) it is not as easy as it seems to keep everyone in sight.

The chaos of the room slowly melted away somewhat as she made her way through the clash of components and howling roar of electronics cooling themselves and beeping to announce the completion of a task, no matter how small. At its heart it was a condensed nerve centre into which all data, resources and information that the Colours and their rebel allies were able to gather, with a single chair that she climbed into and allowed it to mould to her body shape as it always did. Arranged around this on several arms which bound them together into a matrix of displays were three sets of nine screens aligned into three rows of three for each, which formed into a triangular setup around her position as she made herself comfortable.

She was beginning to worry about the breakout as it progressed, and started to plan routes of escape and acquired a couple of transports which she successfully delivered into the hands of a couple of rebels to help them evacuate any survivors when the time came; which she had already set in motion before Red and the others left. She had thought to join them as well but events were progressing faster than she would have liked, and too fast for her arrival to aid much beyond what she could do from here anyways. Her earlier hack into the Prime database had been met with the usual resistance that she’d come to expect.

Even had he not told me, I know he joined them… I’d know his code anywhere.

Shaking her head she steeled herself against old attachments and memories as her attention returned to the matter at hand. She was tuned into the communication flying between the colours in action and attempting to breach those of the Primes as well when she caught Red and Orange making a bit of an error in judgement as they used their actual names. Her first reaction was to think them idiots and foolish as anyone could have heard it but as she thought about it, knowing that would probably not make much difference since it was unlikely that any leverage could be garnered from that.

Muttering to herself she flicked a switch on her system which caused the room to be filled with music in an attempt to calm her as she monitored how badly things were going for the team and wondering what could happen next, especially given Red’s insane offer of herself for everyone else. Though the response of the Primes was even stranger, simply allowing them to go? Ah but of course it was all just another way for the Primes to assert their superiority and make their opponents feel downtrodden once again. Hopefully that wasn’t going to be the case… Well she could hope, and would most likely see the truth when the others returned.
