    Liz didn't even have the strength to nod in answer to Scout's words. She leaned wearily against the wall, resisting to slide down it and crouch at the base. Instead she braced her hands upon her legs and bended forward, her long hair framing her face as her conscience battled within her. She didn't like the idea of leaving Zurg behind anymore than Xenon did, but she, for one, would comply to the emperor's wishes.

    But it didn't look like Xenon was of the same opinion. "Well Zurg's family too--did you ever think of him? He's out there alone, are we to leave him behind?"

    "Do you think I don't know that already?" Liz snapped, her voice slightly shrill-sounding by her stress and anxiety. "Of course I thought about him! But he told us to run! He would hate himself forever if anything happened to you!"

    "Get back to safety, and forget about me. Whatever happens will happen, but I would rather die with honor than flee as a coward."

    "Xenon, no, you're going to get yourself killed!"

    But the younger girl had already run outside, and Liz, cursing under her breath, ran after her, managing to catch up with her just as Xenon had come to a stop. Liz only registered Hellboy holding Zurg high above his head in his stone first and Xenon standing far too close to them for her liking before winding her arms around her waist and pulling her back a bit, at least to some semblance of cover by a broken down wall, despite the younger girl's cries and protests. "Don't make him die alone..." she sobbed.

    "Oh, Xenon, honey, he won't, he's tougher than that. Don't you have any faith in him?" Liz asked, trying to console her as best as she could, though she wasn't better off than her in the first place. "And he doesn't want that, Xenon. He can't take care of himself if he has to worry about you. This was his plan all along. He..." Here, the firestarter had to swallow, a sudden obtrusion in her throat. "He's going to finish this himself. He... he has to finish this himself..."

    Hellboy was having the time of his life, enjoying the sensation of squeezing the life out of the evil emperor, even hearing a satisfying crunch at one point, though his enjoyment was short-lived when he felt a searing pain hit his tail.

    Why was it always the goddamn tail?

    With a scream of rage, he whacked Lightyear (that annoying fruit fly) out of the way, the space ranger soaring high into the air and landing who knew where.

    And then he refocused his attention upon Zurg, his lips twisting into a feral snarl.

    "Xenon, no, you're going to get yourself killed!"

    She laughed madly, "Is that all? Haha," before her glowering kicked in. "Newsflash; everyone's going to die. That's what being mortal means!" Xenon snapped. "If I die sooner, big deal! Sure you may feel grief, and Zurg may as well IF he survives--you can't always assume he will as he isn't immortal--but I have no lonesome planet or grubs to look after, no children to care for, no dependents rely on me."

    She continued, "I do whatever gives good to the most. If I choose to die for them, that is my wish. It's in my nature--defend until your last breath, fight alongside your companions instead of taking cover behind rubble."

    As Liz's grip tightened, she lost her temper and yelled at Liz to release her at once, at first begging, then flatering, then proclaiming that she hated the woman in an attempt to break free, but those please fell on deaf ears.

    After her tears finally ran dry, she answered, "If something fatal happens to him...I'll never forgive you. Or Hellboy."
    She shrugged Liz's arms off her shoulders and stood up, resigning herself to follow the emperor's orders. Liz had truth in these words. "I'll follow, but Scout leads." She would take no directions from the one who held her back.

    CRACK!

    Zurg had not seen that coming. He had not seen that coming at all.

    With a swipe, the big, red monster managed to encase the Evil Emperor's morphed hand within that crushing stone hand and with a sickening CRUNCH, Zurg's hand was mangled deep within the weapon as the metal and wiring twisted and crumpled. His bones snapped like daisy stems and sparks shot out as the machinery desperately tried to de-morph; but it was too late. His hand, along with the piece of armour, had become nothing more than one nasty, twisted piece of art thanks to none other than Red's infected state.

    ".........................." Zurg couldn't even have the time to say anything in response, let alone cry at the pain, as the demon pressed his attack and wrapped the Evil Emperor's flinching form within that wretched Right Hand. There was a POP somewhere in his back and Zurg found himself automatically bending backwards at the merciless tactic.

    "Reeeeed!" He wheezed, struggling with his one good hand to remain alive and in one piece. "Red--!"

    But the demon could not hear him--would not hear him--and Zurg was forced to resort to drastic measures.

    With no weapons to rely upon and his life waning before his very eyes, the Evil Emperor latched his free hand upon the demon's brow--his talons digging into the flesh--and he fired; not from his gun, but from his eyes.

    There was a brilliant flash of twin, red laser beams and they streaked directly into the demon's yellow eyes with a mark straight and true.

    FWWIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIZZ!

    Hellboy screamed at the top of his lungs, louder than he had ever screamed in his life, a wail of blinding, numbing, never-ending pain searing through him, tearing him from the inside out.

    He immediately dropped Zurg and fell to his knees, covering his face desperately as blood gushed from between his fingers like bright red rivers, flowing and flowing and--was there no end to the blood? His eyes felt like they were burning in his skull. It was like nothing he had ever experienced or felt before, unable to be compared to anything else.

    He withdrew his hands, threw back his head, and howled at the sky.

    His eye sockets were... empty.

    Look at that demon.

    See how he cried. See how he howled. See how the blood flowed down from his empty, tattered sockets; the smell of charred flesh wafting in the air as wisps of smoke escaped from the cracks of Red's fingers.

    Zurg was released almost immediately and the Evil Emperor stumbled as quick as he could away from the demon, his feet clumsily stumbling backwards with sloppy steps. He hurt all over, his chest no doubt bruised and beaten, but he continued to take deep, ragged breaths and tried his best to remain conscious despite his peripherals going black with floaters.

    "Oh, Red...." He muttered to the screaming, agonized demon--his agent and his friend.

    He had just committed a crime so terrible, it had never been performed since the age of the First Circle--back when the first Grace had been betrayed by his best friend and his eyes...his eyes burnt and ripped from his head as a testament to the latter's absolute and merciless power.

    Zurg didn't want to be like X'ng, the traitor.

    So he was going to make this as quick and as merciful as possible--it was his name, after all, and what he was about to do required every ounce of steel resolve he had collected over the past decades in his involuntary solitude.

    With a burst of speed, the Evil Emperor cocked his fist back and whacked the demon good right square in the jaw.

    POW!

    The demon's chin was surprisingly resilient and Zurg felt his fingers tingle but he didn't stop there. Now wasn't the time to grow weak and pansy out. He brought back his hand for a mean backslap on the second go and he continued his barrage.

    POW BAM BAM WHACK POW!

    The demon was on the run now and Zurg pursued him without mercy; for this was not the time to show any. Rushing with his good hand, Zurg latched a few fingers upon the demon's belt and he found the Samaritan--Red's signature gun. Since Zurg hailed from a futuristic time, he had never had the chance to touch as relic such as this, but again...the universe had a strange sense of humour. Yanking it out of the holster quickly and he snatched it up; cocking the hammer with a thumb and preparing its chamber.

    What he was about to now....Liz would never forgive him if she was watching.

    Pressing the gun's barrel into Red's flexing, bare chest, he bit back the burning sensation within his throat and he squeezed the trigger.

    The world knowing of his dark deed with a sickening, gut-wrenching--

    BANG! BANG!

    He couldn't see--he just couldn't see--and it hurt so much. It hurt so much that he wanted to cry--but he couldn't cry. His howls dwindled to pitiful wails as he fumbled around blindly, then felt a fist connect with his jaw. He whimpered and took a step backward, then felt another blow, stronger than the previous one, which caused him to tumble face-first into the ground.

    Scrabbling back up to his feet, a whine building up in the back of his throat, he only managed to take two or three steps before stumbling back down again, and as he tried to get back up, he barely registered the touch of cool steel press into his abdomen.

    And then two searing flashes of white-hot pain ripped through him, and he found that for some reason he couldn't seem to hold himself up any more, so his knees buckled beneath him and he collapsed, deciding that just lying there was far more easier than struggling to remain standing any longer...

    He just stared at his feet hearing the girls in the background; he let Liz take care of Xenon... he didn't moved. The boy's teeth gritted and his thoughts started to fight upon a decision. Scout rubbed his nose in anxiety, putting his cap back on his head and stood up.

    muscles suddenly started to feel sore; specially the arm that was covered in bile a moment earlier, there was a bunch of small scratches on it-- he tried to ignore it.

    "ok..." thats all he could tell Xenon. "callin' for help would be an awesome idea right now. they must have an emergency phone up there." He said on a lower voice tone then usual and pointing the way upstairs. Alex was trying to change a bit the ambiance and to give some hope. "second its here we'll leave."

    he couldn't see what was happening outside from where he stood and he had left to to find some help; Scout's hand squeezed the ramp as he dashed up the stairs, his teeth clutched so much that it almost hurt his jaws. "I know it ain't my fault; but sorry... for all this." he muttered, not even looking behind him if they were following...

    Alexandre always has been running away from fights, but his usual strategy was to come back and kill the opponent by faking retreat.... he felt the guilt of leaving someone behind, and Xenon was only emphasizing this sensation.

    hearing gun shot outside was a relief; yet again it could as well be The space ranger... he hoped it wasn't...or at least liked to believe so.... he kept scavenging the first floor for a still working phone; the fact that the building was out of power did not helped and who knew if there wasn't any other zombies lurking here?

    BANG! BANG!

    Scout jolted, the red phone he had took a hold of almost slipping out of his hands.

    Xenon's words twisted in her gut like a knife. She hadn't expected Xenon to react like this, and she certainly didn't expect her words to hurt her this much. She couldn't even think of anything to say. She had only been trying to help, to do something with her uselessness...

    Hellboy suddenly screamed like never before, piercing the silence and causing the hairs on the back of her neck to stand on end and her heart to leap in her throat. She scrambled back up to her feet to get a better look--what had happened? was it over?--then gasped, her hands flying to her face in pure, unbridled terror.

    His... his eyes were gone! Just gone! And then... and then...

    An inarticulate cry escaped from her lips as she felt a nausea come over and bring her to her knees. No, no, it couldn't--he couldn't. She clawed at the earth, gasping for breath, and tried to force herself to get back up, but it was futile. She felt far too weak, far too frail... as if... as if the end were...

    Xenon did feel pity for Liz...just look at her lying there, hurt, alone, feeling torn as she killed the man she loved--well, the man he was now. She should do soemthing about it, try to console her, but Xenon couldn't tear her eyes away from the scene, and could not offer consolence to Ms. Sherman as she herself lusted for Hellboy's demise.

    She wanted him to just fall down and die already, and so seemed the case as the monster once friend lay bleeding on the floor, wating for whatever fate the unhappy emperor had in store for him.

    Hellboy was at least lucky in the sense that Zurg would make things quick, but how does that assuage the loss Liz now faced...
    Xenon placed a had on Liz's shoudler. After all she said...heated words leave a sharp taste, but she could not take them back just yet. All she could do was let Liz know that despite their differing views, she was still Xenon, and Liz was still Liz, and they were both present to face whatever came next.

    Blood splattered messily onto Zurg's torn robing and dented armour, the red liquid splotching all over the otherwise regal shade of purple. In some instances, the Evil Emperor's own silver blood managed to mix with the demon's and the sudden splash of warmth caused Zurg to blink as he flinched; the demon falling into a collapsed, whimpering heap.

    Two considerably large chunks of flesh were torn from Hellboy's chest, the bullets that had penetrated his skin at point blank range the size of a small, slender fruit. Blood just leaked like a waterfall from the demon's abused body and Zurg found himself already standing over Red's helpless, prone form; the gun already pointed at the demon's heart.

    "......R-Red..." The Evil Emperor croaked, almost lowering the weapon and backing off.

    No! He was showing weakness! Zurg could barely control the massive gun with his wobbling left hand, the barrel teetering and bouncing as he struggled to control it and keep it aimed at the true target.

    But....but how could he? He was really going to kill his own man? His own friend because of some sickness? Because of some virus? It wasn't the demon's fault! It wasn't anyone's fault! Not even Sniper's! How could any of them had foreseen this....this tragedy!? And Liz....they were bonded. The Evil Emperor did his best not to glance upwards at the woman, for he knew that she would feel more pain than anyone of them.

    They were bonded....bonded for life....and by his own hand....

    And by his own hand, Red was going to die.

    The Evil Emperor moved the gun's aim away from the demon's bloodied chest and instead, he positioned the barrel straight at Red's forehead as he took another step over the demon's battered body. He cocked the hammer once again, the chamber already prepared to do the deed just like its new, temporary master was--that awful click telling Zurg that the gun was ready and waiting to claim a life.

    "F-Forgive me, Red....but this is for your own good; for everyone's own good...."

    He was going to make this as merciful as capably possible.

    With a sharp exhale, Zurg held the Samarian firmly and squeezed the trigger one last, final time; blood splattering as the awful weapon unleashed another crackling bang.

    There was a flash of gunpowder, the resonating sound of a man dying, and then...silence.

    She barely registered Xenon's hand on her shoulder, emotion after emotion breaking over her like a wave. It was--she wasn't sure just what she was feeling--but she felt like she had to absolutely stop Zurg from pulling the trigger.

    "No!" she gasped hoarsely as Zurg took aim, gripping at an outcropping of rock to help herself back to her feet. "No! Hellboy! Hellboy!"

    She ran, stumbled again, feeling a small flash of pain tear through her knee, but she ignored it and got back to her feet, and ran, and the only sound she could hear was the sound of her heart beating against her ribcage and the pound of her feet as they dug into the earth.

    And then...

    BAM!

    She screamed and collapsed a few feet away from them, tears flowing down her smudged cheeks as she felt a pain rip through her skull, almost as if she had been the one to experience the shot through the head. But a decrepit emptiness soon took its place, as if a part of herself had been torn out of her and had left her to bleed.

    She gasped for breath and crawled the rest of the way, dragging herself up to Hellboy's limp form. He couldn't be dead--he just couldn't be. This was a nightmare, nothing more than a terrible, terrible nightmare she would soon wake up from. And he would be right beside her when she woke, and wrap his arms around her reassuringly, and whisper that everything was all right and that it had only been a dream, nothing but a dream, a harmless dream...

    When her eyes fell upon him, she let out an ungodly wail and clung to him desperately, sobbing uncontrollably into his chest. He was already turning cold, and his skin looked like it was torn to shreds, and there was just so much blood everywhere, soiling her clothing and seeping into the earth like a miasma, and his eyes, oh his eyes, they were desolate and empty and they would never look at her with tenderness and warmth again. She held him close to her as she stroked his bloodstained face tenderly with trembling fingertips, shaking her head mutely, mumbling, "No, no, no, no, no," repeatedly and practically incoherently.

    What happened with Liz was to be expected. She was his bonded and as the rules of bonding went, the kindred bonds would live out for the rest of their days in happiness and warmth of each other....or live without one another and be doomed to roam every plane of existence for the remainder of their lives in harsh, cold loneliness.

    It was a hard fate, especially for a human, but Zurg could not aid the poor woman with any words or actions. Nothing could aid her now, save for the trial that awaited Red when he would wake up from his own nightmare--but until then, as his ended, hers was only just beginning.

    The gun startled the silence with a clatter as it found its way towards the ground; ashes rising up in a plume from its immense weight and sudden impact.

    The Evil Emperor could not carry the blood-stained weapon any longer and as he dropped to his knees, he could only stare in stupid silence as the woman's laments and wails grew further and further away; sound waning as his eyes began to grow heavy and bothersome. Funny, the world was starting to grow blurry and he could hardly focus on anything save for the blood lying about everywhere.

    For the first time during the entire fight, he felt exhaustion creep in and just as he was about to speak up and ask for help, the Evil Emperor's eyes rolled into the back of his head and he collapsed onto his side with a soft thud.

    He had fainted.
