Chapter Twenty Four - The Seeress and the Invisible Man
As Undead issued that challenge, George vanished once more, Rasen and the others gripped their weapons tight, fearful of invisible attack. Bella had three gashes open on her shoulder from Georges claws, she cried out in pain.
Undead began gathering a swirling black aura around her, she fired bullets of the black energy towards Rasen, Tempest and Hikari, Tempest grabbed Hikari and dragged her from harms way, having her hide in the corner, away from the fighting.
Rasen tried to aviod the energy bolts, but one struck him on the shoulder, burning his flesh on contact, Rasen yelled out in pain and his eyes turned red.
"The dragons power..." Undead thought, seeing this, "Now we shall see the true extent of his power."
Rasen transformed, he felt a slight rustle to his left and he struck out and hit something hard, George suddenly reappeared and was sent to the floor.
"Agh!" He yelped as he hit the ground hard, "His reflexes in that form are amazing..."
Rasen was struck by several bullets of energy, leaving slight burn marks on his dragonoid skin. Enraged, he rushed towards Undead, smashing his claws into her chest, sending her crashing into a wall.
Bella and Tempest were being assulted by George, who had turned invisible once again, they were attacking directionlessly as George opened more gashes all over their bodies.
Suddenly Bella struck out at the air and stuck something solid, George reappeared again, a deep cut on his side.
"Damn it! They keep getting lucky!" He thought, but he was then suddenly blasted back by a shot from Tempests energy gun.
Rasen was attacking Undead meanwhile, he struck at her leg and heard a bang as the bone snapped in two. Undead screeched in pain and fell to the floor.
"Damn dragon..." She thought sending aura blasts at Rasen from the ground in anger, but Rasen struck her once more and she was sent sliding across the floor and stopped next to George, who was struggling to his feet, Undead seemed unable to move.
"Damn...my body has gone numb...I can't move." Undead thought, "He must have caused some real damage with that last hit..."
George struck at Rasen furiously as he approached, Rasen ducked down and slashed his claws across Georges throat, slicing it open, he was finished, blood was pouring from the wound onto the floor.
Georges knees buckled and he fell to the floor, he looked at Undead and managed to get one line out, "Heh...looks like I win our bet...Undead." Then the lights went out of his eyes and he passed on.
Undead was amazed, "This grunt actually might be the real deal..."
Rasen had transformed back and he and the others decided to leave Undead where she was, she was no threat any longer.
"Will she live?" Bella asked Rasen.
"Yes...her wounds aren't deady, she'll live." Rasen responded.
As the group left, Undead saw the wing-like organs on Hikaris' back, "Man will gain wings and the sky will return to the world." She thought, "Perhaps...Rasen you...could be the one who does it."
Rasen and the others had reached the final room of the centre, and they were greeted by an imposing figure.
"Dragon boy." The man declared, Rasen knew this man, Destruction, Maikerus' father. "As I'm sure you know, my name is Destruction, I follow the law that rules us, and with the sword, I enforce it!" He smirked, "Boy...dragon-dreamer, as I live and breathe, you shall be stopped, now you shall face your doom!"
