    I followed Azthran into the newly-opened passage, and decended back into the bowels of the earth.

    Heh, bowels.

    Brain, this is no time to be laughing at descriptive words.

    I continued onwards, and a thought sprung to mind: What if there was another one of those guardians down here? What if there was something...worse than that guardian?

    In the secret chamber discovered by Kirgan and his friends, the ice around the battered guardian robot melted fast, thanks to warm temperature of the room. Before the ice was even gone completely, another section of the robot opened with a low hiss. Something crawled out of ruined robot... no, many of them.

     

    Small tripod drones, the size of Kanohi masks, walked around the bigger robot and analyzed the damage. After a while, small arm-like things protruded from the drones as they began repairing the robot...

    Rhea smirked, making a dismissive gesture with her left hand. "Begone, Le-Matoran. You too, diplomat. I wish to speak with the one person who seems to have their head on straight."

    She ignored the chaos erupting behind her. Nero could handle himself in a fight, especially with Mar to back him up. The Ga-Matoran might put a decent struggle, but in the end, she didn't stand a chance.


    ---

    Nero spun fluidly after the Ga-Matoran, acid-green eyes hard and ugly, dropping into a simian half-crouch as he sprang and struck. The combat machete hissed in the air, unintentionally intercepting and eviscerating three of the precious antique tomes in midair as the bookshelf swayed on its haunches and collapsed, surging forward. Surina tumbled nimbly aside, crossbow in hand, and Nero growled angrily, the sound vibrating deep and rasping in his chest.

    He hit the bookshelf squarely, head sunk low to minimize impact, heavy shoulders braced as he threw himself forward, utterly disintegrating the structure as it fell atop him. Wood splintered, shredded. A quick throb of pain bit through his nervous system, and then he was raging, a monster unleashed, exploding instantly into the red-tinged berserker fury of a cornered panther. His muscles tensed and bulged, rippling with raw feral power as he wheeled and swung and tore loose a fifty-pound wedge of polished oak and hurled it like a discus at the Ga-Matoran's back. His vision hazed over, focusing down to pinprick intensity, his subconsciousness reading the swirling air currents as Mar and the wolf-Rahi sprang to intercept.

    Kill kill kill kill--

    His Volitak flicked; his body faded back into full view as his concentration broke down. His eyes were cold, wild, brutally primitive and chaotic.

    Someone was going to die. Someone...

    Surina was undoubtedly an excellent sharpshooter, if that arrow made contact, Karv would very likely be done for.

     

    I wasn't about to let that happen.

     

    I latched onto the sonic vibrations of my voice even as I shouted, amplifying the power into a direct blast of soundwaves directed at Surina's arrow.

     

    "Nero," I barked even as I grabbed after Surina in an attempt to catch her, "the window"

    "I've lived in Onu-Koro most-if not all-of my life. I occasionally go outside of it, but for the most part I stay down there. The sun kinda hurts to look at, so I don't like looking at it indirectly or otherwise."

    (Onu-Koro, Wise Man's Archive):

     

    Viima was about to protest, but decided to keep shut. He had made too many hasty decisions recently. Maybe it really was time to simply trust Tivanu and let him do what he did best.

     

    The sounds of battle in the private room worried Viima, however. He could only hope Surina would be restrained.

     

    IC Surina

    (Onu-Koro, Wise Man's Archive):

     

    "Nero! The window!" Mar yelled. This pulled Surina's mind away from the shock at Nero's rage, back to the escape attempt.

     

    Nero was maybe a berserker or something of that kind, seeing as anger and frustration had obviously made him pretty enraged and prone to damaging things. In fact, a piece of wood was flying from his direction, right at Surina. She simply ducked, making the wood crash into another bookshelf.

     

    Things were blurry around her. Nero was already preparing for another strike, Mar was leaping at her, and Karv came closer by the micro-second. There was only one route of escape: the window. It was too small for two bulky Toa to get through… but also for a Ga-Matoran with a bit too much armor on. And there was no time to take it off.

     

    Desperation fuelling her actions, Surina dove under a nearby table for the fragile cover it offered.

  • OOC: OK I am sorry toatapio.. but i don't see surina's escape as very realistic.. I mean she has 3 people going after her.. one which is a wolf which i can guarantee you can run faster than her. And also she may be smaller than a toa but did you account for all that armor she is wearing now? Because from the way you described it she is Heavily armored.. that armor should wear her down and i doubt her ability to do that back-flip would truly be that great for when was the last time you saw anyone do that kind of jump in armor? Maybe if this were leather or chain-mail armor but from the sounds of it i have been viewing this additional armor, mind you not the natural armor on her body, but additional armor is of the platemail variety which does limit movement.

    There it was. Our epic journey down a set of stairs bottomed out into a smooth stone chamber with the key in the center.

    Nothing else.

    Just the key.

    Then again, they key could cause a booby trap to spring up when we take it, and unleash a giant boulder from the ceiling to crush us right then and there.

    The room was suspiciously smooth, after all. "Hey, Azthran, try freezing the key and bringing it over here with ice-magic-voodoo-stuff"

    Now it's just me. All alone.

    But I'm here.

    And so am I.

    ...I was hoping you two would keep quiet for once and let me relax in peace.

    But i'm your brain. If I left you alone, you would die because that would mean I'd shut off all your vital functions.

    I experience everything through you, if I were to allow oyu to rest on your own, I would be in an infinite void.

    I still don't like either of you.

    Well then, maybe we should have a nice, long conversation about life then.

    How about no?

    Since when did you get so angry?

    ...

    Oh, you're just going to be quiet now that I bring it up, huh?

    ...

    It's the slug.

    I am always to blame, it seems.

    Yes. You are. You have caused so many issues I can't even keep track of them, you've driven away people, made the ones not driven away look at me in disgust...you've turned me into a monster.

    To be fair, the slug only did it once.

    One too many times.

    I just then realized that I had been standing up pointing accusatory fingers at the air, mouthing my argument to myself. An onlooker might have called me mad. My friends might have looked at me like I was having a mental breakdown.

    I looked at myself and only saw a shell.

    I sank against the wall, exhausted from my phantom argument. I closed my eyes, hoping sleep would come, hoping they wouldn't pipe up before I fell asleep. Before I knew it, I was dreaming. A dream that I could never remember, even while in it.

    Sleep is a great thing. It rests the mind, and the body.

    It also keeps you from realizing the thing that was destroyed only a few hours earlier is fully functional and ready to kill you.

    I only woke up when Azthran yelled "Watch out!" and even then, I was too groggy to move. I saw the tentacle shoot towards me, and rolled out of the way.

    And by roll, I mean flop onto the ground.

    The tentacle smacked into the wall, right where my neck had been, and I started to actually roll to the side. Unfortunately, it didn't work.

    The robot had gotten my leg, and there was nothing I could do about it but scream.

    Strength beyond what I believed I possessed coursed through my arms, my legs, everywhere. I grabbed and yanked the tentacle holding onto my leg, hoping to rip it to shreds.

Xaron fell to the ground with one half of the tentacle. The other half, still attached to the robot, swung randomly as electricity sparkled at its tip.

    But I could hear something whizzing by my head, whizzing all around me. I didn't want to open my eyes. I wished I didn't have to.

    But I did. right when a disc was flying at eye level. I ducked down as quickly as I could, and the disc missed me by a few millimeters. I crawled as fast as I could, rolling out of the way of oncoming discs. A disc hit my arm. It hurt. My arm may have been bleeding, it may have been severed, I don't know. I didn't care. I kept crawling towards it. A disc lodged into the floor right in front of me, and I grabbed it. I threw it into the mechanism which was dead-set on killing me.

    The strength helped the disc come back just as hard as it was being fired at me, if not more so. I don't know. I can't measure speed with just my eyes.

    Two tentacles instead of one.

    And this time, they were trying to kill me, not hold and grind me. I stood up, and jumped out of the way, hoping to find a disc on the ground.

    I found one lodged in the wall, and grabbed it. A tentacle flew towards me, and nearly hit me.

    I hit it instead with the disc.

    The metal disc plus my strength was enough to split one tentacle, but the other one was after me again. It darted behind me, and I was able to turn around in time to catch the impact with my wounded arm.

    Stars danced in my eyes, but I persisted. I grabbed the second tentacle, hoping to destroy it as well. It slithered out of my grasp, and aimed right for my head. I threw the disc in my hand at it, but the disc merely distracted the robot.

    Enough time to rip the tentacle off.

    I grabbed the disc once more, and aimed right at the thing's eye.

    I was not going to die.

    The primitive artificial intelligence of the robot registered that the Matoran had become more of a threat than original data had indicated. Xaron's strength matched that of a Toa rather than a Matoran.

     

    All the more reason to increase the intensity of the attack.

     

    While one half of the robot fought Azthran, the other concentrated on Xaron. The intact tentacle made for Xaron's feet, attempting to trip him.

  • IC: Xaron

    A tentacle slithered at my feet. I looked down, ignoring myself, and promptly stomped on it.

    Multiple times.

    There was nothing left but damaged circuitry when I lifted my foot away from the tentacle. I looked at the thing. The other tentacles-which were still intact-were attacking Azthran.

    It had all it's usable tentacles focused on the Toa of Ice I had come with. I let out another scream of fury, and launched myself at the eye. I will rip it out of it's socket, and destroy it.

    I will wreck this thing, even if it kills me. And it most likely will.

    I didn't notice one tentacle went after me. I didn't notice it hitting my wounded arm. I didn't feel it. My mind blocked it out.

    I didn't care. The tentacle aimed at my now-exposed body, and I twisted towards it. With my arm-my only arm-I yanked at it once again. Harder than before.

    The tentacle came off, and I resumed running at the eye. A line of blood followed behind me, coming from where my left arm used to be.
