    That had been close—too close. She huddled into the corner, trying to bend her leg despite the pain, to tuck it closer to herself. But she couldn't do much in this state—and she had foolishly gotten herself trapped into a corner.

    Ash began to rain down from the sky from the previous blast, and it filled her nostrils and lungs with such a burning sensation that although she covered her mouth with her hand, she could not suppress her sneeze and the itching sensation in her throat that begged for her to cough up the ashes.

    Just when he was about to curse his luck, he heard a cough.

    "Aha..." He remarked to himself. There was only one pile of crates left, untouched from his cannon, and that could only mean one thing: she was there. Not bothering to even utter a word, the Evil Emperor raised the muzzle once more and fired.

    This one hitting home.

    The crates exploded around her, obscuring her vision, splinters and ashes flying everywhere. A larger plank knocked her shoulder, and though she tried to crawl away, the plank was too heavy and had fallen on her left arm, effectively pinning her down, the rest of the rubble also impeding her movements.

    And through the ashes came Zurg, his horned visage absolutely terrifying to her, no doubt.

    Good.

    "What's the matter, Babe? All out of places to hide~!" He cackled madly, his laughter echoing across the cityscape. But he cut if off quickly, getting to the chase as he ripped off the debris, huge chunk by chunk. And he didn't stop there. Once the path was clear, he charged at the woman and dragged her rapidly across the roofs--dragged her with pure murder in his eyes as his gaze bore into hers, unblinking.

    And he only stopped once he reached the edge of the roof, dangling the girl stories ahead of bustling traffic and oblivious citizens.

    "Are you afraid?" He asked, his voice unusually cool and rasp. "Are you afraid to die here, Jo? Well, are you?"

    Only the shrill wind could be heard up here, so any scream of help she would make would be futile and in vain.

    Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh, no

    She couldn't escape, it was too late—he had grabbed her by the throat, steel talons digging into her skin, dragging her, dragging her, and then—there was nothing beneath her feet, nothing but the faraway ground below.

    She gripped at his fingers, trying to pry them away, her other arm still dangling by her side useless. Yes, she was afraid. She couldn't deny it. She was deathly—ha, how ironic—afraid of him, but most of all of the look in his eyes, the merciless depravity that shone forth like a burning star.

    "Please..." she tried to choke out, gasping for breath, but it was hard the way his claws were twined around her throat. "S-sorry..."

    She didn't know what difference it would make—if it would make one—but she would do anything for him to stop staring at her like that.

    "You're sorry?" He repeated. He at once brought her face closer to his, his gaze never changing.

    "You're sorry?!" Zurg nearly spat in disbelief in a low hiss. His grip tightened, and he felt her veins bulge underneath his merciless grasp. "The world doesn't fix itself with sorry."

    "I... know... but..." She tried to gasp, swallowing, gripping his wrist. "Had to... say it..."

    Her head was beginning to spin, her eyes glazing over; her throat was burning. She didn't know how much longer she could take, dangling here like this.

    "Hmph! Well, I'm not buying it!" Zurg nearly shouted at the top of his lungs. He was so furious, so furious! He wasn't thinking straight, but by the Cosmos, he wanted to do something! Anything! He really wanted to kill her! Sure, he wasn't a murderer, but he also wasn't a man with a good heart, either!

    In his faltering state of mind, he only squeezed harder and began to feel the girl starting to slide from his grasp; her form slowly turning limp.

    He was so furious...

    It had been a rather typical day for the demon. He had gone down to the city to—believe it or not—do some grocery shopping. Nothing fancy, just a few essentials here and there. He held his shopping bag loosely in one hand, humming softly to himself as he made his way back to the shuttle bay where he had parked his spacecraft; the sleek astralripper Erevos.

    Zurg had supplied him with the best of the best, being his agent, and Hellboy rather liked the perks that came with the job. Sure, he sometimes had to perform questionable jobs for him, but it was all in a day’s work, and by the end of it he could proudly say that he could do anything his employer had asked of him and have time to himself, to boot.

    So it was on one such day that he had decided to stock up, like on any other Monday, and was making his way back to his ship when he heard a strange, familiar sound in the distance, almost like... laughter? He stopped humming and paused, straining his ears to pinpoint the source.

    He took one step forward, then paused again, listening, then another step, and another. And then, when he had finally determined that the voice did indeed belong to someone he knew, and very well, he lifted his eyes skywards to actually witness the exchange—was that Zurg holding that mechanic over the side of that building?—then broke into a dead run, dropping his forgotten shopping bag behind him.

    What the hell was Zurg doing—what the F#%@ing hell was Zurg doing?

    There wasn’t time for subtlety, or going through the usual entrances, so he just jumped up and drove his stone fingers through the brick wall, scaling the wall like the monkey he was, up until the fifth floor—the rooftop. Gripping the edge, he hoisted himself up, rolling to his feet, to see Zurg dangling Jo over the edge of the building on the other side.

    “Zurg! Stop! Stop!” he hollered, walking forwards a few steps, his right hand raised cautiously. “What do you think you’re doing?

    Like most of his plans, there was always a hitch. And this one was no exception.

    "Don't come any closer, Red." Zurg snarled coldly, already holding his cannon up at the onlooking demon; the tri-barreled bores glowing ominously with a pulsing, neon-green glow. "Take one step and Jo falls to her death!" He hissed.

    What was the matter with him!? This was like his self back during the pre-colony days...with the settlers staking out planets near his neck of space. A part of him he rarely let out...But you know what? He absolutely reveled in it, this time. To be bad, to be malicious, to be evil. He had missed it--he really had. He really did enjoy the thrill, the rush, of what he was doing!

    Life in his hands, just like it was back home!

    “Zurg,” Hellboy said slowly, cautiously. “Just think for a moment about what you’re doing.”

    He didn’t dare take another step, for fear that Zurg would hold true to his threat and drop Jo—he could care less about the cannon aimed at him.

    “You’re about ready to kill someone,” he continued, his hooves shifting ever so slightly. “Are you really sure you want to do this?”

    Was... was she saved? Had someone stopped Zurg? But who? What?

    Jo's mind was so muggy by now that she barely registered who or what Zurg was talking to, only that she wasn't dead yet.

    She wasn't dead yet...
