She wasn't so sure about this now. It was something they could talk
about but when it came to doing it there was more doubt when on the
task itself. She knew Ketori was right that eventually Calu was going
to lead the dark betaka's people into something they would not be
prepared for. Despite all attempts things had gone to hell here. They
lost control of the flock and the situation. And Calu was making
Ketori was set on his plan. He knew what he was thinking of could get
him punished by the powers that be in this city but right now he gave
not a single shit about that. Eventaully Calu could defy the rules
just as the same as Ketori was planning to do right now. He held one
of the few weapons they had left that the flock hadn't traded off in
Dreama was behind him with her scyther blades ready to strike. She
glanced about looking for the other with them. She wasn't sure about
him... he was the most unstable of the flock now and having to rely
on him was the bottom low. But...o stop Calu when they had the
chance... they needed all those willing to help. And in the darkness
of the alley before them she saw him. The massive spines twisting in
the wind as he walked. He was growing in strength as time went by.
They had to deal with him now before he was beyond their combined
Ketori paused feeling unsure for a moment. But only a moment he
thought prehaps Calu knew they were following him. The beast had
seemed to pause for a second. But then he turned toward a building
and appeared he was trying to enter it. It was time... he was
distracted and that was what they needed! Ketori slipped along the
buildings trying to get in as close as he could before dashing for
The pit in her stomach curled and coiled as Ketori sprang into the
alley and raced for the dark gengar. She was right behind with her
blades drawn. Before she even knew it something crashed into her. And
it wasn't until she was laying sprawled on the cold street that she
realized it was Ketori. She tried to gain her bearings but her head
was spinning and the smell of blood was in the air.
She saw lights spinning about her. And slowly they took shape. Silver
slashes in the darkness. Set in a face darker than the night. His
fangs glimmered in rage as they drew near.
"Well....well... so some of the pussy side of the battle do have...
fight in them!" He snarled as his hand caressed her cheek. "You came
all this way to come and hav another good time with me? Now haven't
He shrieked and flayed his arms wildly suddenly. Dreama was confused
as the demon backed away. He grasped at the spike driven in his side
as he glared at Ketori.
"Dink i'd make it dat easy for you eh?" The ram growled as he got to
his feet. Blood was flowing from the corner of his mouth and some
dripped from his nose as he stood to face the demon once again.
"Well it's a lot more fun this way!" Calu grasped him by the throat
and slammed Ketori into a wall. "You stupid creatures! Always
interferring with me! You are going to lose this battle! None of you
seem able to concentrate at the real tasks except a handful of you!
Not enough to win! Give in and serve the Dark one!"
"Tempting offer...but no!" Ketori grinned despite the danger he was
in he realized this was more than just a fight over territory for
It had been ages since he had thought he would ever have to deal with
the Neo Destiny drivel his father once spewed. But... now here it was
"Ketori!" Denoc sprang from the shadows slashing Calu across his back.
He had that deranged murdering look upon his face again. Dreama
didn't even know the ram anymore. He was far removed from what he had
been outside this city and the killing of the rith that brought out
this other side to him.
"This was the best you could come up with!" Calu lashed out his tail
throwing Denoc away from him. "I expected more. Especially after that
bloody show you put on outside with the Rith Denoc. Or you Dreama
after how you handle Heero." Caluduska laughed. "If defeated you all
is this is... The Neo Destiny is going to be rather dull for me."
"Whatever you have in mind... we won't let you do it. Not one of us."
Ketori groaned as he tried to force himself up.
"What I have in mind is to end all that I was meant to accomplish! My
goals must be met! And no one will stand before me and block my way!"
Caluduska shoved Denoc back against the ground as he thundered his
way toward the older ram. Snorting Calu reached behind his back for
something as his other paw lashed out and grasped Ketori by the
throat and pulling him near. "Not you! Not your brothers! Not Noc! No
one! will be my equal by the time this is over!"
He plunged a quill deep into Ketori's shoulder. He could hear someone
charging up behind him. He snarled as he reeled about and slammed
Ketori into Dreama. Laughing he watched them tumble and tangle up
with one another. It was almost a rumbling growl that spilled from
his lips. Hateful and burning his eyes searched for Denoc as the
laughter trailed off. He was limping toward him with the spike again.
Calu smirked as he produced another quill.
"There will be someone always standing up to you... If not us... then
others!" Denoc snorted. He was hardly that insane innocent ram now.
He was the murderer he had been back in his father's army. Blood
fascinated him. He even now could not stop flaring his nostrils to
take in as much of the scent as he could.
"Let them. And let them die as well!" Caluduska leapt before the
island ram could react. His massive weight pinned Denoc down. the
demon turned to Dreama with a grin filled with gnarled and twisted
teeth. His forked tongue lashing out as he stabbed the quill into
Denoc as well.
Dreama desperately tried to push Ketori off herself as Calu thundered
his way toward her. His paw came out and caressed her cheek. Eyes
focused on her fear furrowed on her face.
"Oh...I'm not going to do that to you again...just not yet. That fun
happens later my dear. For now... I'll let you watch them die
together!" Calu laughed softly. "Oh... the brother's Ke will shorten
their family tonight. Only if I could watch too! Shame... I have a
prior meeting to attend that you have delayed me from."
Dreama shivered and tears dripped upon her skin as she watched Calu
walk away. She hardly could remember anything beyond that. She
screamed a curse as she found herself pulling out from under Ketori.
She stood there bewildered looking from both brothers as she pressed
her hands to the sides of her head. She couldn't think of what to do.
"FUCK!" She shouted as she crumbled next to Ketori. She held back
herself from vomitting. She threw her face in her hands as she sat
there trying to think of who could help. Kanga was far away. And
there wasn't any other healers with them.
She grasped Ketori and with what strength she had left in her quaking
arms she pulled him into one of th buildings. He was slick with sweat
and she had to keep grasping him in her slippery grip. She focused
herself on Denoc next. He was the lighter of them. She slumped
herself between them and shook. She wrapped her arms about herself
and rocked as she kept trying to come up with some answer. She began
crying softly as she felt so lost. She felt she had gotten the rams
killed for nothing. they hadn't even planned anything out they just
took off after the demon. they got sloppy and now there was a price
to pay for it.
