The Smiling Assassin
Re: To Reach the Sky...
Chapter Nine - Unleashed
Rasens' entire body trembled, his skin visibly began to quiver and ripple, his hair stood on end and turned pure white, horns grew on his head and his entire body became covered in blue and red scales, he grew claws and his muscles bulged with incredible strength. Maikeru looked on in shock as this occured right in front of him.
Tempest, taking advantage of the distraction, dashed out from between the two rangers covering her and grabbed Hikaris' arm, dragging her away from Rasen and any possible danger, she crouched by the frieght tracks, protecting Hikari from danger.
Rasens body finally stopped trembling and he straightened up, he felt different, detatched, as if he was dreaming, anger and power coursed through him. The two rangers ran at him, swinging their blades at his scaled skin, their blades clanged off harmlessly, Rasen turned, his red eyes gleaming in the semi-darkness.
He swiped with his claws, knocking one of the rangers flying into a wall, where his head connected harshly with the stone and he slid down onto the floor, out cold. The other ranger tried to strike at Rasen again, Rasen caught his blade in one of his clawed hands, he gripped it, snapping it in two, he then held out his hand and a blast of pure red energy fired from it and struck the ranger in the chest, sending him sailing across the room and onto the floor.
Maikeru began striking at Rasen wildly, his rapier clanging and bouncing off of Rasens scales, leaving no damage or marks at all. "How is this possible?" Maikeru couldn't understand what was happening. "How did he transform into this...this monster?!"
Rasen struck Maikeru in the chest, sending him into the wall behind him and he too slid down to the floor, un-moving.
Rasen felt his anger slowly subsiding, his body was now covered in light flames. After a minute, Rasen stood in the centre of the freight station, his body returned to normal, he dazedly looked around, spotting Hikari, trying to run over to him, Tempest, holding her back, fear and astonishment on her face.
Rasens' vision blurred, he felt dizzy, his legs suddenly gave way and he dropped to the floor and his vision started to fade. Tempest now causiously approached.
"What was that?" She wondered, "Where did that power come from? Is this...ranger even human?"
Hikari rushed over, crouching down by Rasen, worry on her face. Rasen felt the last slivers of conciousness leaving his body, his vision continued to fade, the lights in his eyes slowly going out. As he lost conciousness, one final thought entered his mind.
"Who am I?"
"Can you believe in this?"
Make your getaway, make your getaway
Break free from a fate that is far too sad
