Ash and Alexander carried Team body to hide him carefully behind the cargo box, not wanting someone to find Team and attack him in such a defenseless state. Ash removed the extra cloth Alexander had wrapped around him a while ago and covered Ash body with it instead. A minute of silence reigned until both Alexander and Ash stood up and turned around with determination written on their faces.
They took a few steps forward, ready to engage themselves into battle and attack their enemy when they stumbled back as they felt the ship started to move. Only then Ash realized what was going on.
"Shit! They're starting to move again! The Fairy Clan hasn't stopped yet. We need to act quick, Alexander. Or else we wouldn't be able to get out off this ship!" Ash yelled as he tried to regain his balance from the moving ship. He extended his hand to help Alexander in which the latter received and gripped him tightly.
When they had found
Everything happened in a blink of an eye before the remaining enemies understand what was happening to their leader. They momentarily stood frozen, completely abashed by the scene that happened. But Alexander took that opportunity to launch his attack. Alexander stood and with great flexibility he grabbed his two guns and threw it off in the air, as he advanced on the two men in front of him and grabbed their heads and smashed it together. The impact was so strong and hard that he swore he heard a crack and the two body laid limp on the floor, but Alexander was not done yet. He wanted to make sure they're all drop dead. And so he slammed his body on top of them and raised his two hands with his palm open, just in time the two guns landed on his hands and he swung his shoulders down and pointed the gun over their chest, like the way he did to the previous man, and pulled the trigger."You motherfucker!" The last two men behind him screeched in anger as they drew
The last things Ash heard were the sweet chirping of the birds and the light breeze of the wind cooling his body as the last remnants of his sleep left. When he opened his eyes he was greeted by the warm rays of the sun piercing through the window curtain that made him close his eyes again from the pain of the light. After a few seconds he slowly opened his eyes once again as he adjusted his eyes to the light around him. The first thing he saw was white.Weird.As far as Ash could remember, there were no shades of white on the night of their fight. Everything was covered with darkness, deep crimson coming from the large amount of blood that had been spilled on the ship, and the deep orange hue that symbolized the true terror of the Black Wolf plan. It was—Ash eyes widened as if the fog had been lifted and suddenly, all he could see was the scene that made his blood run cold, and the terror and fear shook him throu
Ash had somehow calmed down when he knew that his friends would never put all the blame on him. And when he recovered, he proceeded to ask the thought that's been bothering his mind."Wha—what about you Team? How did you survive and get off the ship? What happened?" This time, Seth and Simon stood nervously as they pulled some chairs and walked closer to Ash bed."I—I am afraid Team can't answer your question, seeing as Team doesn't have a clue as to what happened, so from here on, we will explain to you what happened that night, as well as these past days." Simon said as he put him hand over his and gave it a gentle squeeze. He tilted his head to see the boy, and nodded. Signaling her to start her story."So, the moment you guys left us and went to the ship, Seth and I had been fighting against the Black Clan. A series of gunshots were exchanged on the battlefield and we were forced to have some light hand t
"You bastards are indeed lucky, you know that? All I ever wanted was to bathe myself in a pool of your blood. But I'd figured that suffering is just . . . boring. So dull and cliché. What I want, though, is to watch you all suffer in pain and agony. So, yes, I will tell you the whole plan of the Fair Folk faction for tonight, in a plain and simple manner. With no cryptic words and shits." He gave them a sinister smile that made Seth and Simon's stomachs scrunch up and shiver. A shiver that signifies things are going to get bad."The whole note basically just instructed you to be here on this ship, keeping you away from targeting our real goal. Our mission is to babysit you and keep you preoccupied, while our big bosses do the preparation of the attacks. Long story short, the battle on the ship was just a diversion. It's not the real thing, you know. I pity you guys, though. You put too much effort in fighting already, only to find out you're just fighting
"Who—who's this?" Ash voice loomed in on the other line and Seth can't help but feel a pang of pity for his friend. Ash must have already seen the horrible pile of dead bodies on the ship. But they shouldn't stop now, Ash has yet to realize it was just the start of the Black Clan wicked plan."Ash! It's Seth! You need to listen!—""Seth! I—I can't! This—this is too cruel! They—they!""Ash! I know it's hard, but—but you need to listen to me! This is all wrong! We've been deceived! It was just a diversion! It's not a fairy! It's a—"He was interrupted when they heard a series of loud explosions coming from the airport. Seth and Simon stumbled back in their boat at the strong impact of the explosions. Both of them clasped their hands over their mouth as they took in the horrible scene before them.The whole municipal airport were on fire. The airplanes around the
Ash sighed as he ran his hand through his hair and entered Alexander room in the private ward. It's been two weeks since the incident, and he still wasn't done with the amount of paperwork he needed to do. For the past two weeks all of them were working nonstop on the post-investigation, naming the victims, examining their bodies and sending them back to their families, and they needed to write testimonials on that night over and over again and submit it to the authorities. Team and Rose were often throwing a bitch fit whenever the authorities cornered and bombarded them with all the unnecessary work when they should be preparing and hunting down the Black Wolf Clan before their next move.And for the first time, he couldn't help but agree with them.But he knew beforehand that what he wanted right now wouldn't matter. No matter how much he wanted to follow the Black Clan and track them once more, he couldn't do anything.<
Team and Rose knew how much the guilt was eating Ash alive. The night he finally woke up in the hospital, only then the realization of the incident sunk into Ash mind and he didn't sleep for a long time. He indulged himself in crying, taking all the blame on himself for what happened. The nurses had to give him some sedative to calm him down. Team couldn't afford to let Ash break down like that again.At least . . . for now.He knew his bestfriend is strong. He knew Ash could overcome this. But he felt like Ash is in his most vulnerable state right now. Not only did he carry the burden of the lives of the victims in the tragedy, but Alexander was still out there, fighting for his own life. Right now, he wanted to protect Ash until he gathered himself back. He wanted to keep him from recollecting horrible thoughts from what happened that night."The Wausau base only specifically called me and Rose to go. Since they have y
Ash widened his eyes as he took a step in the Wausau Municipal Airport for the first time. He felt his whole world freeze as he took in the whole surrounding. The horrible vestiges the Black Clan left. The whole airport was covered by black smoke and a hole. As if there had been an asteroid that fell from the heaven and landed in this very same place, erasing its whole existence from the earth.The once beautiful airplanes parked at the runway like toys had turned into a mountain pile of garbage. All of its mechanical parts were burned until it was beyond repair and unrecognizable. Ash got out from his reverie when several men approached him. Judging from the white lab gowns they wore, Ash suspected it was the medical team who will take care of the dead bodies and put them into a coffin. He learned from Rose and Team that the immediate families, as well as the victims agreed to have a general funeral and burial ceremony for all the victims of the tragedy.
