SL: RA 09Chapter 09: Day of Reckoning
Dawn of the next day arrived. I was fully healed and harmonized with my overflowing energy. Training with Calico and Lysten served well in furthering my growth. At the same time, Mist was taking measures to match my level. "At ths level, I'll surely die before this batlle begins to be exciting for both of us. I might have to borrow some energy from that stone while he toys around with my robotic copy." While he was engaged in doing so, I, along with Dawn and the rest, were already en route to his hideout. Of course, he did have a rowdy welcome commitee, so we had to get past them before we even caught up to Mist himself. As Dawn did her best to hack into his security, I handled the assault from in front of us.
After a good while, we finally arrived at his lair: our fated battlefield, Ragnarok. "MIST SPARETT!!!", I shouted. But what came out of his throne chair wasn't h
SL: RA 08Chapter 08: Bonds of Lovers
I woke up a week later. I was in a coma from my fatigue, thanks to the fact that I transformed into not only the Mute Form, but also Super Form almost immediately afterwards. My body was weak, so I was ordered to rest. In my mind I was wondering about that golden light, which was akin to my Super stage. Aside from that, I was wondering why Dawn risked her own life just to bring me back. Unintentionaly, I overheard her talking with Tyanna at the very moment.
"Tyanna, thank you. Your treatments for Strider are more than I can wish for." Tyanna became rather modest. "Nonsense. We just do whatever we can. However, I am puzzled. You put yourself in harms way, just to rid Strider from his curse. I doubt even he understands why." I couldn't avoid admitting that she was right. That I NEVER understood. "Don't worry. I just do whatever's necessary to keep him with me. I'll be sleeping
SL: RA 07-BChapter 07 B: Malicious Nightmare: Light of the Super Transformation
My body couldn't take anymore. I was violent beyond my breaking point. I soon found what was left of "myself" murdering Macer. Even to the point where I was hitting Macer, already down for the count. It was getting harder for me to regain control of my body. To lose complete control only menat that my death was assured. Dawn reached me which led to inner conflict. Outside, she could see that I was struggling to regain my sanity. As much times she was pushed back, part of which was to avoid her from harm, she persistently tried to aproach me. While my claws clutched her arms, I felt her lips kissing mine. Inside, that made a light emerge, where my conciousless laid. As soon as I approached that light, I repossessed my body. My body returned to it's original, gray appearance. I thought I saw heaven, but in reality, heaven disguised itself as Dawn, and saved me from my own demise
SL: RA 07-AChapter 07 A: Malicious Nightmare: Dangers of the Mute Transformation
I couldn't control my own body anymore. I was unaware that Macer didn't have his way with Dawn. Tyanna laid beside me in horror. When I saw that monstrosity I had become, I howled in extreme bloodlust. While I couldn't actually do anything, I had retained a bit of my sanity. "Leave this place. And take Dawn with you. Please." "Alright." Macer saw Tyanna making a run for it, as I instructed, but before he managed to stop her, "I" interfered. "No. I'LL be the one to kill you!!" Macer's destruction was the only thing I had left in my mind. Tyanna and her crew escaped sucessfully with Dawn. Now, I could allow my maliciousness to take full control of my body. My claws were ready to create a bloodbath.
While Tyanna's crew was elsewhere, Dawn was given treatment and a set of new clothes to wear. "Well, now that I'm healed, we can resume our
SL: RA 06Chapter 06: The Demon Within
For a few days, my mind was phasing out on me. In my mind, I kept thinking I saw something resembling me, except this 'thing' was more violent, malicious, and bloodthirsty. I collapsed a few times having that beast in my mind. I even felt like vomitting at times. I tried to surpress these thoughts, which was mysteriously easy whenever Dawn appeared. Just looking at her made me forget about it, evenn though this was constantly temporary. What ever this meant, I figure that whateer that form was will get her involved. I careless for her, but I want to solve my own battles, so I don't want her stepping in for any reason. "Strider? What's wrong?" I tried to keep it together. The less she knew, the less worry she'll have for me. "Don't worry about it. It's nothing." I refuse to get her involved. She has her own battle to think about, after all.
After some time walking, I felt my
SL: RA 05Chapter 05: Dawn's Decision and Strider's Beginning
Standing there, Dawn stood amazed at my stance, while Storm and Ace grew agitated and impatient. "Strider, huh? Lemme guess, you're gonna say you'll kill us all for killing Sai, right?", sneered Ace. "Hmm.... now that you understand that, prepare to be assimilated!" All I had in my mind was Sai's dying expression as he laid there near the remains of his house, which my power leveled. "Shut up! Watch your words or you'll end the same way your late sensei did!" I grew angry at that comment. "You... you'll die first!", I said, just before Ace charged for me. I backhanded him, which left an unusual' force behind it. The impact swollen he right side of Ace's face, his mouth bleeding as well. "Ugh, sunnuva bitch!!" Ace was pissed. But the big one stepped in for him. He said, "Stand down, partner. I'll straighten him out." "You... straighten me out? Okay then, If you can, you can torture he however y
SL: RA 04Chapter 04: The Malicious Avenger
Five years have passed, and I became a mature, combat-ready 17-year old. The scar became a pink, permanent mark on my eyelid. I endured so much over the years that I felt as if I could handle anything. Sai couldn't help but be proud of me, as his teachings flourished my abilities. However, I felt as if the ultimate test wasn't too far off. As much as I hate it, my suspicions, like now, were dead on. Mist was getting impatient with the fact I survived, doing nothing in the process. He ordered three assassins after my hide. "Ah, so you arrived. Three of the best assassins alive: Storm, the goliath of destruction; Ace, with the fatal deck of cards in his sleeves; and the busty feminine killer, Dawn. I'm pleased you can make it here. It's very rare I call on others for my personal matters," said Mist. "Nonsense, sir. We honestly don't mind the work," spoke the leader, Dawn. "Ace, I understand that despite your stat
SL: RA 03Chapter 03: The Story of Mist's Betrayal
In the first year of training, Sai put me to what a normal rookie would call Hell. But being rescued from that attack from EDEN, I felt as if I've been there and back already. Overtime, I adjusted to the Chaos Fang, I even controlled it to the point to fire multiple shots, or even use a single hand. Of course, amidst all this, Sensei was troubled. His worried glare clearly resembled that of my late father. I had to ask. "Sensei? Is something bothering you?" Sai replied after a few seconds, "Ah. It shows that much? I'll be honest and say that it's my son that has me troubled. But mostly, Mist!" I wasn't ready to know about Mist entirely, as much as I despised him, but there was no ignoring my curiosity. "Care to tell me about it?" He sighed, then replied, "Your father, Jetter, can explain this much better than I can. But I'll try in his absence."
SL: RA 02Chapter 02: The Distant Sensei, Sai
Just when I thought my life was going to end, some combat-ready echidna steps in, saves my life, and takes me to his house. He then treated the wound inflicted on the lid of my left eye, just before covering it with an eye patch. "Now then, who are y-- oh my! You've grown so fast, little warrior," he spoke. "I appreciate the flattery," I said to him, "but I'm afraid I don't know who you are." "Not surprised. You don't know me, but I know you all to well, almost as if I was Jetter's brother." I briefly let loose a few tears from that remark alone. His name was all it took to make me recall that grizzly murder that was televised.I could not forgive him for taking father, more or less the entire village, away from me. "I'm sorry bud. Did I say something awful about him?" "No," I replied, "it's not what you said, but he is now... gone." His eyes lit when I told him. "GONE!? No... He was the symbol to the peace we
