19. The Shot

We ran down about seven corridors, all of them identical, until we saw an exit, to the courtyard in which we'd been dropped off. Without a moment hesitation, we burst through the door, only to find about three squads of armed guards waiting for us. I swore under my breath, they had their laser pointers on us, we couldnt move, we were completely surrounded. And being in the middle of the open courtyard didnt help, no cover, no help coming. Shit.

"Tell me Mr. Redder, did you think that you would actually escape?" Hank wandered up to us. Son of a bitch. I clenched my fists and teeth in anger. "This is where you die my friends," he turned his attention to my dad," except you," He pulled a taser from his pocket, and shocked my Dad with fifty Hz of electricity. Drops of rain started to fall as three men in black army gear took my dad away and restrained Scarlet, Luce, and I. I heard three of the guards lock and load behind us, they were going to shoot us. "Wait!" Hank said, "Take the little one, we can learn much from her to, kill those two," He moved off with Luce in tow as i said, I'll come back for you! I pormise!!"

"Ready!" I clenched my eyes shut, and whispered, "Scarlet, I love you, im so sorry, so sorry baby.." I unfolded my wings and turned, swiping at the guards, knocking them down, picking up one of the rifles, i shot blindly into the mob of black kevlar armoured guards. They shot back, i stayed infront of Scarlet. More of them came with cattle prods, trying to shock me, i grabbed one of them pulled and head butted his helmet, the plastic shattered, as did his skull. I kicked out at another one, sending him flying. My wings were useful as a sheild and a weapon, nothing hurts more than being smacked in the chest by a half tonne wing, they were dropping all around me, but there was no end to them. they just kept coming. I shot two down, punched another in the gut, broke anothers leg by kicking his knee. I couldnt keep this up.

"Enough of this," I heard Hanks voice, then a shot. Everything was still as i turned around, Scarlet stood there, looking like a goddess in here t-shirt and jeans, but something was wrong, terribly wrong. A red patch was growing on her chest. She fell, i ran toward her, screaming. I caught her. "NO! No, scarlet, no dont die, please, dont die! Baby come on!" She reached a hand up, stroking my cheek," Told you i wouldnt let you go to your doom...alone...seth..."

"Yeah, im here sweetheart, im here,"

"I dont blame you....I love you seth...im sorry to...leave..you..." Then she went still, her eyes closed. Tears sprang from my eyes, rolling down my cheeks. Then i felt it, the same crippling rage that had enveloped me in the hospital, it clung to my lungs as my breath became more feirce, It coursed through my veins as i fought harder, smashing skull, breaking bones, roaring with blind rage as i did so, 'THEY KILLED HER! THEY KILLED HER!' i repeated over and over in my head, Fueling my rage, but as i fought, i noticed, the guards were dispersing, they were leaving. The rain hammered on my shoulders, soaking my skin. They kept going until.. i was alone, with nothing but bodies for company. I knelt next to scarlet. I put my forehead next to hers, "I'm so sorry baby," tears stream lining down my cheeks, my breathe caught in my throat. Her blood was pooling around me. I lay next to her, as the rain drenched my broken body.

I lay there.


I had failed...and scarlet was dead...I had failed...
