As I woke up the next day, some medical Officers took me to their testing lab and tried concussive gas on me. They tried using 3 types, each more concentrated than the next. The last one only made me sneeze once. They were baffled and tried more gases, like sleeping and even some toxic gases, but NOTHING worked.
Everyone was baffled. They had no idea what was happening. I survived any gas sprayed at me. Sooner or later, they gave up and sent me out. “So what happened?” Alex asked me.
“Nothing. Even toxic gas didn’t work,” he seemed to doubt it a bit, but then he accepted it as Chase approached us. He had a bad cut on his forearm that went vertically to his palm that was wrapped in a bloody bandage. He had more bandages wrapped around his torso. His face was stern and he looked us in the eyes.
“You two possess more fighting ability than any other Private at this base. You may even be as strong as a Corporal. Then again, most people are stronger than their rank like Giovanna, who is at least a Lieutenant, and I’m about as strong as a Major, but that’s besides the point. I’ll explain to you what happened at the war council yesterday,”
As he finished explaining, he said, “Now I need you guys to exterminate all BDs that come in. I fought off hordes of scouts and drew some other unneeded attention to our group. I got badly injured, but I can still fight. Your group will consist of Akio, Giovanna, Alice, and you two. Your group will be lead by me,” He stamped our masks to say 9-EX, for extermination.
I figured I needed to make friends with Alice. Throughout the week I’ve been here, we’ve only engaged in awkward small talk. As we met outside, I noticed something strange. Alice’s skull mask had 8-EX on it. 8. She was a Corporeal. I was outraged. Even though she was fast and could attack quickly, that meant nothing. I though that my swift bone scythe could easily defeat her.
Alex noticed as well. “Wait. You’re a Corporeal?” He asked.
Chapter 10: Extermination
Alice nodded while smiling, “Yeah, when they want to promote someone over one rank, multiple Captains or higher discuss and they decided that my speed and swift movements made me a Corporeal. They thought about making me higher, but they didn’t want me to look weak in front of Sergeants. Cool, huh?” Alex and I slowly nodded.
“Whatever, you retards, lets go,” Giovanna and Akio appeared behind us. Alex rolled his eyes and walked forward with his hands behind his head. As we headed out on a new trail, I noticed different stone. Even with the dim lighting of the light stone on the top of the cavern, I could still tell that the walls were glimmering.
“These walls are made of shimmer stone, a stone that will glow brilliantly if there is light. People can get blinded if there is too much light on it,” Chris explained. We walked on as we heard flapping. I looked up and then I heard cave beats coming down cliffs.
“Gouge, Rosae,” Chase said. He swung the giant metal rose into the air and attacked the bird and hit every other one with extending thorns on the rope. As we slashed and stabbed all those cave beasts, I saw Alice fight. She would zoom around and somehow dodge all the shots, while perfectly stabbing and slashing everything. She used her shaft to trip groups, as she would down them all with one swift slash.
The cave beasts, birds, and various members of the Black Dawn attacked us and we could barely defend all of our sides, but we managed to mow through them. While holding my scythe, I felt lighter and I was able to do some ridiculous stunts like flipping and somersaulting in combat, allowing me to decapitate and dismember them.
We heard a roar and a cat-man jumped down and attacked Alice. It was like the hound golem except with a lion’s head and a giant 5 on its chest. Some giant steel claws erupted from its fingertips. It swiped at her, but she slid under and slashed at its legs. We ganged up on it, but its fur was like chainmail and caught our slashes, forcing us to stab on the sides.
“Swiftly walk on the Heavens, Cursoribus,” Akio disappeared, and reappeared slashing at its belly with perfectly angled strikes. Suddenly, the cat-golem roared and hit Akio in the shin with the back of its paw at extremely fast speeds into a wall. I was alarmed that something could keep up with him.
As it pounced toward him, a scythe pierced the back of its neck and swung him into a wall. It was Giovanna. I was in awe of her strength as she said, “Dang, physical combat isn’t gonna be easy. I can’t believe I’m forced to used this… Fire! Tormenta!”
Suddenly her scythe turned into an assault rifle. It shot out pure white bullets that riddled its backside with shots. It still limped towards her and jumped as it changed into a shotgun and hit its face at point-blank range. The cat golem fell back as she fired at its neck and decapitated it.
We looked shocked and Alex asked, “H-how did you…?”
“It’s my second form, retard,”
“I thought that there were only three types of level two forms: physical, magic, and elemental,” I said.
Giovanna looked back at Akio and sighed, “Yeah, but I have a ranged physical release. The ranged physical scythe is one of the rarest scythes, behind elemental. These are powerful, but their ammo is based on their energy and adrenaline. If you have more stamina, the more you can fight, and because most people don’t have as much energy as me, these are rare,”
As we continued on, I felt weaker than everyone else. Seeing Alice, a girl I hated because she brought back memories of Laura, is destroying people swiftly. Akio, Giovanna, and Chase all have level two scythes. Alex’s giant scythe made my light bone scythe seem fragile and small. I felt helpless, like I once did while in the ditch, being shot at and then seeing another guy embracing Laura as I died.
As we approached a camp we overheard some BD’s talking. “They should be at the enemy base in about a week or so,”
“How many are there?”
“About 3000,” They noticed us spying as we killed them quickly.
“We have to warn the base immediately,” Chase said as we sprinted back. We almost made it back as a mountain literally exploded. We managed to dodge some of the rocks as a herd of 5 bull golems appeared before us. They had the head of longhorn cattle; dark brown muscular bodies with a 6 painted on them, and spiked iron knuckles on each fist.
They rushed as us as Akio appeared behind one and stabbed its head, but the scythe barely went inside the skull. It shook him off and almost impaled him with horns, but he teleported out of the way. Chase flailed around Rosae, but he barely crushed any bones and barely punctured anyone with the blades.
However, Giovanna was the first one to destroy a bull, though. Her shotgun riddled one with pellets as she turned the shotgun into a rocket launcher and blasted one away into oblivion. She panted for a while as we protected her, ignoring her protests saying that she didn’t need help.
Chase jumped around two bulls constantly smashing and stabbing, but it was useless. Then I noticed he was throwing the rope around the bull-golems. He the pulled the rope tying them, and as much as they struggled they couldn’t get out. He tugged once more as giant thorns appeared on the rope and impaled the enemies.
There were 3 down and two to go. Alex and I grouped up on one guy as we continually slashed at his abdominals. Finally, we both lunged and sliced him in half. As we were doing that, we saw Alice slash the throat out of the bull-golem, with help from Akio.
Out of the rubble from the mountain, we saw a giant black bull, which had two giant spiked clubs and horns that were 3 feet long. He stood 8 feet in the air and grunted as we saw a giant 2 on his chest. Chase whispered to us, “…Run,”
