Skul Fan-Fiction 13

                                 It flew at Nicolette. The bullet slowed seemed to fly in slow motion, getting slower the closer it got.  Wait . .It was getting slower. She raised her arms at a speed impossible for a human and swirled her hands, making the air around the bullet heavy and knocking it slightly off course.. In-fact, when the bullet reached her it barely even penetrated her shoulder, but whatever was engraved into Israel's gun flung her off her feet in a wave off blue energy. 
                                 But she regained her composure quickly and cushioned her fall with a blanket of air and landed on her feet. We turned to Israel, ready to attack at the slightest movement. He looked like death warmed up, as he stood limply, gun dangling at his side. Nicolette was the only one who took immediate action.   She used fire to propel her self forward as she ran ,like a rocket. Jesus, I didn't know she was that good. She sped right past me towards Israel, pure anger in her eyes. I noticed something black along her face.Black . . . 
                                 I instinctively pressed my hands out flat and some type of blue plasma shot out off my hands. It struck Nicolette in the side, and she was knocked into a wall of a shop. I looked around to see that the attention had left Israel, and everyone was ready to attack me. Before I could explain, my back was hit by a wall of air. I went flying and would have gone face first into the wall of the opposite house if shadows hadn't caught me like a baseball glove.
                                 I landed on my feet and spun to see why I'd been saved. Florence was turning back to face Nicolette like the others. She had one arm outstretched the other held twisted, useless by her side. Dark black veins covered her normally pretty face, which was contorted into a demented smile. She broke into a shrill laugh and clicked her fingers. Dragona was engulfed in a blue-ish flame. His scream of pure pain and anguish pierced my ears.
                                Anger.Consumed by a power that had never before surfaced, I rose into the air shrouded by dark blue sparks. I never felt so powerful. I could destroy the world. I heard another scream but it faded away to the background, in the hum of my power. The stormy sky was now firing lightning in all directions. I couldn't control this. It controlled me. I raised my arm and pointed a single finger at Nicolette. All that power erupted from me and into her. I saw her face still smiling but with a slight frown , like I'd just said something stupid. I realized that it was me screaming as the energy shot for my body and headed for Nicolette.

                             I ran around Kallista and flung a powerful bolt of lightning at the pure remnant. It ducked down under the attack but one-on-one was where I was in my element.Before it could pull up I sent a wall of static at the area it was in. It wasn't powerful but it distracted it long enough for me to charge up a powerful ball of electricity, like a plasma ball. It hit the center of the remnant's ghostly body and it shrieked an inhuman scream and almost completely dissipated.
                            I had no emotional problem killing this creature. It was completely evil, one of the most vile things ever to darken the earth.Just as I prepared to throw another bolt to kill it, two objects became visible in the night's sky. Obscured by the rain, I prepared for a big fight and Kallista, who until now stood behind me watching, stepped up beside me , flames in hand.
                              The remnant was still trying to regain it's solid form when the smaller of the two shapes changed into something that looked human. They were still too far away to see their faces but I could already tell it was Skylara. I still didn't drop my guard on the chance she might be possessed. Praying she wasn't, I walked over to the place they'd landed .What was the other thing?
                              A cloud of shadows landed beside her, and it gracefully unwrapped, revealing Florence. Skylara began running towards us in human form.'STOP', I roared, not willing to take that chance.'Prick your fingers and show us your blood',I called, my voice sounding commanding.Black was not my favourite colour now. Black was very,very bad in this situation.
                              We couldn't go up close but Kallista again displayed her magical prowess by moving the drops of blood through the air.Both red.I ran and hugged both of them in a grip that would have hurt Bliss.Skylara hugged back but Florence just looked awkward. Embarrassed. No guilty.'What's wrong?',I asked, her after it broke off.'Nothing . . . it's just I am not used to . . . ya know. . .hugging',she finished, lamely.
                              Before I could question her more, a hum of what seemed like a vacuum broke the awkward silence,well, as silent as a storm could get.We stared down the road and saw what looked like a kind of flat tornado heading for us down the street. Kallista reached out her hands and screwed up her face in concentration.Then relaxed and smiled'It's OK, I think they're friendlies and is Dragona Pine travelling with you by any chance? They dropped out of the bubble and fell hard on the ground. Dragona smiled at Kallista.
                              'How do ye two know each other?',I asked,happier than ever at such a normal conversation. That was utterly ruined when a Silver Porsche with scorch marks on the bonnet came rocketing down the road.It skidded sideways as the driver slammed the handbrake and jumped out of the car.Israel jumped out of the car and ripped his specially engraved gun from his holster.

     Then he pointed it at one of us.And then he shot it.And I was shocked out of my mind that he did.

                                      (While all that was going on this is what happened to me)

                         I was falling into the crater I'd made. This was the end. I noticed how bad the weather was . Ha. The rain was falling at the same speed as I was. I continued rotating in the air from my horribly thought out plan when the rain sped up. Then I realized I was slowing down. A young, female sorcerer stepped out from the crowd, manipulating the air as she walked.A Saviour??I landed softly at the jagged edge of the hole.
                        There was an outcry of rage from the remnants who wanted me dead. But as she came closer I saw black lips and veins of a possessed. She had Asian features and dark long hair but pale skin. She wore a flowery kimono but it was tight fitting, made for everyday wear.She spoke with no accent but her voice filled with contempt and loathing,'I want his body, he's stronger than this useless vessel'
                       She opened her mouth and a black mist left her and flew at me.I threw a few leftover sparks at it but it easily recovered and flew at me again.The girl it had inhabited was ,amazingly, still conscious and she swung her arms towards me. I was pushed out of the way by a wall of air before the remnant could dive into me.
                      With as much effort it would ever again take me I got to my feet and turned to help. She was using advanced air techniques to avoid attacks and the shrieking loose remnant. I was tapped out and there was nothing in the area I could see to recharge myself. I shuffled to a broken window and climbed into some unfortunate persons living room. I dragged myself to an electrical socket on the wall and pressed my palm against it.
                       I felt the power in the line and pulled at it with my magic.Power surged through my body. I converted it to more magic and physical energy. This wouldn't be constant flow so I took my time and fully recharged, even taking the time to make my dagger more conductive. My magic was storing and manipulating the energy into much more volatile sheer power.With this in me I might escape.
                      With a jolt I remembered about the mysterious woman who saved me, and I jumped out the window. She was still skillfully dodging attacks but she was sweating, growing tired. I took the dagger Nicolette had given me and ran through the crowd, stabbing and slashing while sending thousands of volts of power down the blade.Sorcerers fell all around me, thinning the amount of attacks heading for the woman .
                     She turned on the offensive throwing streams of fire, cutting off air supplies and using water to slow down her opponents. The rain was coming down in buckets and we both used this to our advantage.She did something unheard of. She actually froze the water on the possessed, then made air bubbles around there heads to knock them out. I ,eager to out-do her, send a strong current into one of the possessed and used the water as a conductor to keep the current going so almost all of them were severely shocked or knocked unconscious.
                     We finished the last few off by cutting off their air supply and using fists as tasers. When the last of the possessed was incapacitated we took a moment to look around. Well over one hundred people lay either dead or stunned on the ground. I felt proud but then almost instantly guilty. I killed innocent people. 
                      'Thank you' I blurted as I turned to the woman.'If you hadn't helped I would be dead or worse by now.You were amazing! How did you freeze . .' She cut me off with a wave of her hand.Then she reached hers out.
                      'Kallista Pendragon at your service', she said, smiling a Mona Lisa smile.'How may I help you now?   Just then the loose remnant from earlier came flying down the street behind Kallista's back.Not again . . .
