    His fists struck out furiously and violently, but there was again no real power to it. He felt one blow land on Ridley, but it was a soft one. Tired from his last chance of attacking, Kev laid back on the dirt and panted heavily, trying to catch his breath but finding it very hard to. This...this was it. A far different death from all of his other deaths.

    At Mr. Dark's hands, he had died quickly yet painfully. He had decomposed and rotted into a pile of dust and bones, screaming all the while. He hardly even got to attack Mr. Dark, and had been disposed off without much effort on his part. In Otokoyo, Kev had lasted a while before he had died. He even got the chance to take down a few demons! In the end, when the bridge collapsed, he had fallen to the depths with just about everyone else, and their bodies had been used like batteries for the little town. And in the Phazon Crisis, he had become poisoned and infected, driven insane and dying slowly. When the mines collapsed due to the Star becoming a black hole, he had stayed behind and welcomed his death. Three deaths, he had been through. A death of chance and dominance, showing Mr. Dark's abilities. A death during battle. A death of choice, an ending to weeks of suffering.

    Pirate Lord Ridley wrote:"Now, Kev... it's far too late for regrets. It's time to die."
    "Go ahead..." He stared up at Ridley, body shivering. "I'm r-ready..." He was the one to issue this fight. He was the one that challenged him. A misguided attempt at revenge and closure. Different from the other times he had died, this was one where he only had one person to blame for it. Himself. He would almost say it wasn't worth it, but he remembered...he remembered Ridley's screeches of pain as he thrashed from Kev's mental shrieks. "Ehehehe..." Even though he didn't win this fight, it was so worth it to see the dragon flail and scream. He had brought the dragon pain and at least there...he could find some peace.

    A visor fell over Ridley's face as he leveled a talon at Kev. If he had the strength he would try to avoid the coming attack, but in this shape? He laid there in his crater, eyes still locked with Ridley's visors, still chuckling softly. The claw came down and the chuckling was replaced with a sharp gasp of air. He tensed up and screamed out in pain, hearing more cracks accompany the previous one. He wheezed loudly and more blood fell onto the ground, as the black closed in around Kev's vision. Pretty soon he went still, hoping only that this death wasn't a permanent one. Indeed, Kev's body began to dissolve into code, leaving behind a bloody crater instead. He may not have won, but there had been some closure, still. The victory was Ridley's yet again.

    Death. Death was an accepted, average part of everyday life. Death was a part of EVERY world, people's deaths leaving marks on many, changing other people, and helping others towards their goals. What manner of death, with or without pain, is a death like this? A death caused by a one-on-one battle. A death caused by he who seeks to kill for enjoyment, of he who seeks to get revenge for other deaths. Death... what a mysterious subject. It existed in this world, and it existed in the previous world. The previous world, however... death was even more of a mystery than it was here. Here... there existed the Pool of Souls. The fact that that existed in the first place was enough.

    Ridley had been given a nickname in the past... the Chozo had named him the Cunning God of Death. He'd cheated death in worlds where you weren't supposed to come back. He also cheated death here. Morality dictated that Kev should have won. Kev should have kielld Ridley, but Kev should not have been the first person to try, anyway. Morality dictated that Ridley deserved to have had people lining up to kill him until he didn't come back, but morality wasn't in charge. What was in charge was balance. And that affected everything.

    Ridley silently enjoyed Kev's scream of pain and the cracks as he crunched every bone beneath his palm, his X-Ray Visor revealing the damage that was being done and him enjoying every second of it. He removed his hand as he looked at Kev's face, bloodlust taking over. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, no more blood would be spilled tonight. As Kev's body dissolved into coding, Ridley turned his back to the crater, ripe with Kev's blood, and spoke into his communicator.

    "Hey. Pick me up. The challenger is dead." He waited there for the Pirate Squadron to come and collect him.

    Twenty minutes later, he would be on his way back to Planet Zebes.
