    It was quiet.

    Too quiet.

    The streets were devoid of any life, primitive vehicles upturned—their gas tanks billowing out black plumes of smoke and fire—and everywhere, a scene of destruction was before his sight. Buildings where in shambles and glass lay scattered, windows mangled and destroyed. There wasn't a sound to be heard save for the exhaled air from his lungs.

    There were giant grooves into the ground, like someone had pounded the tar and asphalt as they trudged upon its blackened surface, and the smell of decay was prevalent upon the air.

    “He’s been here, alright….This place is an absolute ghost town….”

    A familiar purple figure cautiously sneaked down the battered road, their main weapon of choice primed and ready to face any potential threat that would come their way.

    Having been attacked not soon before this, Zurg had taken a few hours to return back to Planet Z and refresh his attire—a new set of battle armour and a better contingent of weaponry for the task ahead. Behind him, Liz followed closely, the two of them making the journey on foot in the night to find the renegade demon.

    It had happened so suddenly, so fast. Not even the Evil Emperor had expected such a quick turn of events!

    The anger, the sensitivity, the unbridled power: all the signs that Red had been infected and was turning. It had been too late by the time he realized this, and now, he felt regret for not seeing the signs earlier and paying attention to his staff.

    “It’ll be alright…” He whispered to the pyrokinetic. “We’ll find Red and once we do, we’ll help him recover; I promise.”

    He promised.

    Everywhere around them was chaos and destruction. The buildings and cars had been torn to shreds. There were deep, long scars in the street of something large and cumbersome having passed by, and pretty fast. It was as if the people here had barely had enough time to flee for their lives before the wave of terror assaulted them. The air reeked of staleness and decay.

    But worst of all, it reeked of blood.

    Liz swallowed and followed Zurg, her boots crunching onto glass shards. She wore modernized armor over a sleek black bodysuit that Zurg had provided her with. She had taken the garments, and the proton bomb strapped to her back, rather reluctantly.

    She was no stranger to battles; she had been in several and knew how to fend for herself. And she had fought zombies before too.

    But she had never fought against Hellboy before.

    She knew how powerful he was. He was deadly in a fight, and most of the times she had seen him she knew he held back the real extent of his strength. Now, though, that he had become a tanker zombie--Scout, who followed behind, had said it was all sorts of powerful and strong to kill--he would probably be even more deadly.

    She clenched her hands into fists. She wasn't sure if she could go against Hellboy. Not when she knew that they had to kill him to save him, both from himself and for the innocents he would slay.

    “It’ll be alright… We’ll find Red and once we do, we’ll help him recover; I promise.”

    She nodded mutely, feeling slightly reassured by Zurg's words, but unable to hold back the lump in her throat.

    "oh god... why did you accepted...I'm a freakin' moron"

    oddly quiet at the turn of events, He followed behind them and listening to their whispers, but he did not dared placing a word, despiting him being Loudmouthed.

    It was a real mess, not even a common infected was there. strangely, tanks do not scare off the horde, Hellboy must have been out of control and even hitting his own kind and seeing the damage here, they will have trouble killing him.

    if there was any other way then this, he would do it.

    A chainsaw hooked to his back and a pipe bomb to his belt and his scatter gun in hands, He was ready... well... sort of...the silence of this place made him Nervous, his heart was in his ears, his hands shaking on his two barreled gun and for once it was not because of caffeine. Scout knew That a monster of this size would take him down in one... single... blow

    a bricked wall to the left crumbled down in a cracking sound, it took his attention to the building's roofs.

    "I'll go up there and see if I can spot him."
    his tone sounded different, lower and calmer then usual, which was not a good sign.

    Scout ran on tip toes to a gutter, carefully climbing on the metallic object. Hopefully this thing was going to resist his weight, at least until he reaches the Top.

    Liz's silence only continued to make Zurg realize that this situation held more gravity than he wanted to think about. The poor woman had to go through possibly killing her husband in order to save him. It was something no one should have to go through, and even though he was what that Erin girl would have called a 'wretched soul', he still had feelings and right now they were mired with anguish and reluctance.

    Even if he didn't show it.

    When Scoot spoke up, the Evil Emperor briefly felt a tingle crawl down his spine and he slightly turned his head to give the boy a nod.

    A sentry upon the higher ground would be a good tactical advantage and since Red was such a big target, he would hopefully be slow and cumbersome to the point where the rooftops would be hard to access for the demon.

    "All right but be careful; we don't know if we're all alone out here..." He cautioned, but he figured the boy knew this already as the Evil Emperor briefly paused to watch him scamper up like a devolved Binipinardian. The boy could hold his own, he would be smart about it.

    Continuing down the beaten road, Zurg held his cannon firmly but not too tightly to avoid his muscles locking up and his grip weakening due to strain. He strafed it left and right slowly, his eyes looking this way and that as he ambled down the road with tiny step, by step; so far nothing alerting him to a threat.

    And then...he saw it.

    Or rather, heard it.

    Not too far off, around a pile of overthrown cars, he heard the chomping of teeth and the gnashing of metal--twisting and groaning.

    "Wait..." He urged to Liz, holding up a hand for them to stop and reassess the situation. "There's something up ahead..."

    Hellboy merely sat there, smack dab in the middle of the road, a larger-than-usual blot of red sticking out like a sore thumb in the midst of cars and buses, chewing blankly on a car door streaked with blood with a vacant look in his yellow, bloodshot eyes, as he garbled something unintelligible.

    There were dark black circles beneath his eyes; his skin, once bright and firetruck red, now had the shade of dull rust. Streaks of congealed blood covered his body here and there, some having even formed around his mouth and having dried in clumps as they had dribbled from his blood-soaked teeth. His teeth bit through the iron like a knife sliced through butter.

    He still had his horns, hooves and tail, the latter of which was twitching lazily as he kept chewing on the door, bits of blood and slobber still oozing from his mouth. The only thing of him that look untainted by his zombification was the right hand; still immaculate, still stone-like, and still a weapon that could be used for mass destruction.

    Liz barely took note of Scout as he moved to higher ground, still immersed in her thoughts, and she nearly bumped into Zurg when he stopped in his tracks and said that he could see something up ahead.

    She looked up and squinted against the pale glow of the moon, taking a few more steps forward to see better, much to Zurg's dismay, then wished that she hadn't as her breath caught in her throat when her eyes fell upon the Hulk-like Hellboy.

    "Oh, God..." she gasped, taking a few steps back and gripping Zurg's free forearm to steady herself. She covered her mouth with her hand and looked away, her breath hitching in her throat as she could feel a prickling sensation at the corner of her eyes.

    She couldn't do it. She couldn't steel herself enough to kill him. She would be helpless to stop him if he attacked. She couldn't possibly kill him. She should have never come in the first place.

    "I can't do this, Zurg!" she whispered hoarsely, clutching at her forehead. "I just can't!"

    And here came the hard part: the part of the encouragement than he, himself, did not want to give.

    "You must." He whispered simply, already setting his Zurgatronic Ion Cannon to the infamous eleven notch. "I know you don't want to hear this, and I don't even want to say what I'm about to tell you, but for the safety of Red you must help me...help me kill him." The Evil Emperor let those last few words leave his tongue slowly, carefully. They took much consideration to say but say them he did--it had to be done.

    "We must end his suffering now, before he harms any others or himself. Do you want him to remain stuck like this? Like a foul creature doomed to wander the lands of this planet to feast upon the bodies of others? Think of the long-term goals at stake."

    Funny, he was seeming to recall a similar decision he had once faced himself: the short versus the long.

    How funny the universe was; he just had to learn to take a joke.

    Wrapping an assuring hand around her shoulder and giving the devastated woman a firm squeeze, the Evil Emperor slowly nodded at Red's direction and rose his arm studiously as he took aim at the unsuspecting demon; his fingers squeezing the trigger with more pressure by the second.

    "When I fire..." Zurg spoke softly, his eyes already focused onto the target with an unswerving gaze. "I want you to run for cover and provide secondary support. I'll draw his main rage while you lick him from behind. Scoot will pellet him from above. When the moment is right, we'll bring him down once and for all and from there....well, Nergal will handle the rest."

    And that was all that needed to be said as he blinked one last time, perhaps for the last time in his life, and fired.

    It was as if Zurg's words were the nail to the coffin. Each syllable, each breath, twisted inside of her like cruel, jagged knives. She could feel the tears threatening to overcome her, but she drew several shaky breaths in an attempt to keep them at bay.

    Why, two days ago Hellboy had been perfectly fine, and though the first hints of the infection with his overt aggressiveness had made themselves known early last night, she couldn't have possibly imagined that something like this would have happened. Everything had happened too fast for her to keep up. It was all like a blur, a haze to her mind's eye. She felt too weak, powerless to do anything to change the situation.

    But she didn't want Hellboy to stay like this...

    She nodded, inhaling deeply. "Okay," she whispered, tilting her head up to the night sky and swallowing, willing her eyes to remain dry. "Okay..."

    Zurg touched her shoulder, squeezing it reassuringly, and she felt grateful that he was by her side. She flexed her fingers, feeling the warmth of her inner fire flow inside of her. Rarely did the fire within help her feel at ease, but it was a welcome comfort to her now.

    She had to do this. She had to be strong.

    Zurg outlined the plan for her, readjusting his grip on his weapon, and squeezed the trigger.

    The demon-spawn turned tank-zombie continued to chew almost speculatively on the slab of metal, barely registering the first shot that sped by his left horn. However, his infected brain, as slow and arduous as it was for the organ to form any cohesive thought, did register the next two.

    The second shot hit his left shoulder, causing him to jolt and cry out in surprise, dropping the car door he had been chewing on. His cry of pain sounded like that of a poor, unintelligent beast's. The third hit him in the abdomen, and if one thought that his first cry had been loud, this one was twice--if not three times--as loud. Both blasts had left large, gaping holes in his flesh; cauterized wounds, where bullets would have been useless.

    However, it had been a rather foolhardy move on Zurg's part. The minute Hellboy's glazed-over eyes focused upon Zurg, the only one in the vicinity and the one who had caused him this pain, he had been marked.

    But the sensation of pain only fuelled Hellboy's rage. His eyes narrowed as he garbled something unintelligible.

    He sauntered up to his hooves, resting his fists upon the ground before him. Standing up upon his hooves, he beat his fists against his chest like a gorilla, and roared. His bloody, razor-sharp teeth were bared, his gaping maw appearing seemingly endless.

    Then he charged forward like a massive brick wall on hooves.

    With one massive swipe of his stone right hand, he knocked Zurg clean off his feet, then blinked stupidly when Zurg was no longer there. Despite his massive size and strength, being a Tank... he wasn't exactly the brightest bean in the pod.

    (( With every attack--or turn--depending on Hellboy's rage meter, he gains 50 HP. He's a demon-zombie, after all. Regeneration for the win! ))

    Liz did not look to see if Zurg had missed or not. The second he fired, she made a mad dash for an outcropping of rock, crouching low behind it. After a moment, she realized in detached fascination that she was in fact using the top of a building that had literally been ripped from its foundations as cover.

    She heard an ear-splitting scream of pain, then one of rage. Then, a deafening rumble as the very earth shook beneath her feet as Hellboy surely made his charge toward Zurg.

    She gripped the edges of one torn wall and tentatively peered around the corner. And what she saw caused her to bite on her lower lip to keep herself from making any sounds.

    Hellboy slammed the Right Hand into Zurg and literally tossed him straight through a wall like a rag doll. She didn't know what was more terrifying: the fact that Zurg had crumpled beneath the blow like a wilting flower or the fact that she had heard a sickening crunch upon impact?

    roof top to roof top, He was hoping to the next building with ease. "poor girl" he mumbled to himself, catching a glimpse upon the group.
    "whoa!" as his heart stopped, The boy instinctively grabbed the closest thing.
    "okay, metal note, look in front of yourself when jumping" Scout thought, hanging at the edge of a concrete structure, looking down in the void. "phew" He troublesomely hoisted himself up.

    Alex did not see the zombie yet, but His eyes grew wide has he hear the blaster and the Horrible sounds coming from the beast; yep, that was it, the massacre was going to start. the building he was on trembled.

    He ran at the edge, just in time to see The emperor smash into a wall.

    "oh fuck" someone had to catch this thing's attention, at least until Zurg steady himself.
    Scout was scared, he would piss in his short if he could.. well no time for that! despiting his shaky hands, he quickly took a hold of his crappy baseball bat.
    "comon, please work. please freakin' work"
    His right hand squeezed on the sandman trying to get a better grip; His hands were a tad sweaty. The ball was tossed

    "SHAK!" The boy did a wonderful swing, The ball loudly whistled trough the air for the head. Hopefully it would knock this zombie and gave them some time, or at least take his attention on the ball.

    Buzz cocked his arm, steadying the laser aimed towards Hellboy. It was increased from its stunning frequency to a much higher and more concentrated form just a breadth away from taking a life, for he would try to subdue then reason with whatever there was left of Hellboy, but if things got out of hand...he had a recently legalized laser pistol with a particle accelerator with a pinpointed targeting system, getting much more damage than the average beam of annihalation.

    But that was a last resort, as lethal force is something not to be taken lightly.

    What...what had become of him. Buzz was not prepared for the appearance, with rotting muscles bulging from added myosin and pus, the vacant stare in his eyes, the horns that seemed even larger and more weathered, and worse: the damage that surrounded his hellish appearance. Of course, give the demon an infection that makes an average man a force to contend with, WELL DONE UNIVERSE.

    That was sarcasm, but Buzz remained optimistic. Surely Zurg could reason with his newest age---

    BAM BAM BAM


    Buzz narrowed his eyes as he muttered, "Wow Zurg, you sure do have a way with words," before gasping in surprise at Hellboy smashing his fist into one wicked blow and sending Zurg zooming across several meters. That took some serious strength as grappling with Zurg was no laughing matter!
