Life and Death
In a dark place where the souls of the cursed find refuge a voice broke the grave silence. The place was empty, none could be seen, they had all gathered. In this place where light was rare preparations were made, preparations for war. "This is going to be a great battle." Forse's voice echoed. "They want war so lets give them what they want." screeches came from the crowd of the now dead. "We shall burn their flesh off their bones!!!!" this phrase caused a great effect on the mindless creatures he called an army. "Now let us prepare!" he said and his minions went to attend to their jobs. The skeletons that were wrapped in black fire were now going to prepare for an other slaughter. Preparations that would take plenty of time.
Buttercup finally opened her eyes. She tried to move but her pain overwhelmed her. Without being able to move she gave a quick look to the room she was in. It was very friendly-looking and the bed she was now on was comfortable and eased her pain. "Wha..what happened?" she said in a weak matter. "You were very seriously injured, it is a miracle that you are still alive." said a voice that came from the other side of her bed. She swiftly turned towards it. A tall, blond-haired teenager stood in frond of her. "Who are you?" she said with a bit of anger in her voice. "I’m Alex. Alex Sparks. But everybody calls me Life." right then he lifted his arm and a yellow-orange glow came from hand. He touched her cheek. She felt a great feeling of warmth and security for a moment. Then he took his hand off her. "What did you just...." she tried to say but was interrupted. “You had a very deep cut on your face so I just... you know... healed It." he said. "Actually I did that to all your wounds. It is an ability of mine. You are now physically fine but the pain will last for a couple of days." and with that he picked her up and started to carry her out of the room. "What are you doing?" she asked. "Well you are in too much pain to move and I guess you want to see your sister." he answered. Out side the room there was a long corridor. There sitting on a chair was Blossom waiting eagerly for her sister. "Is she OK?" she asked when she saw them. "She is fine. She will just feel pain for the next couple of days. Now let’s get out of the hospital. There is something I would like to show you." and they begun to walk towards the exit. "Thanks again for getting us out of trouble back there." said Blossom. He didn't answer. He just opened the exit door.
The girls were astounded from what they saw. A gigantic room was in front of the there were thousands of people training with guns, there was a part where there were large machines and jets, there was a door leading to a lab. "Welcome to the local Elite base." Life said proudly and before any of the girls said anything he said. "The Elites are the official army of the masters." "OOOK! What the hell are you talking about, what masters, what army!!??" Buttercup yelled but before he could answer. "No way...is that?" Blossom said as the door of the lab opened and Dexter's figure came out. "Dexter! What are you doing here!?" she yelled. By the sound of her voice Dexter jumped. The girls run down the stairs and towards him. Once he reached him she began to make a hail of question to him. "... What’s going on? What are you doing here? Did you know about this place for a lot of time and if yes why didn't you tell me?" Life still holding the other girl in his arms stopped her. "Why don't we all go and discuss this calmly into the plan room." Once they entered the room an even greater surprise took the girls over. "Blade what are you doing here, weren't you on a trip or something?" they said together. In frond of them standing in frond of a gigantic screen, where there was a detailed map of the city, was Blade and next to him Blitz. "Look..." said Life loosing his temper and placing the girl he was hiding on a compatible armchair that was in front of a large desk. Life went and sat behind the desk. "The point is we are about to experience war." he said "But before that we need to prepare and we needed plenty of help to do that. Dexter allowed us to build our base in his lab and he is now helping us with equipment. Blade offered to show us the city and to help us make our plans so we had to make him disappear for a while. And Blitz, seeing that his power can be magnified many times by some pills we are now making a new more powerful pill for him so that he might help us by leading some of the army when the time comes."
Suddenly Buttercup said. "Where is Bubbles?” "We couldn't find her." said Alex. Blossom opened her mouth to say something but Alex stopped her. "Don't worry we will find her in the meanwhile this is what I want you to do. You will go to school as normal. We estimate that we have about six weeks before the assault. You will be very careful of the new black haired tall boy in your class. And do not make him suspicious because he can kill you with in a second." And with that he stood up and left the room to attend to his other duties.
