CHAPTER 4: UNLEASHED
"Where is it!" I could hear one of them yell. My dad was shaking in terror.
"I c-can't tell you," he managed to get out. I gritted my teeth as I watched one of them smack Devon with the butt of his sniper rifle.
"Next time it'll be worse," he snarled. Devon didn't reply.
"You get the hint!?" the other one, his face masked with a hood, shouted. He was also wearing a black leather jacket with a bulletproof vest over it. My father shook slightly but didn't say anything. The first terrorist growled with rage. He pulled a handheld device from his utility belt.
"Hate to have to use this," he cackled sarcastically. He waited, but got nothing out of my father. Then he turned it on and I could hear the buzz from where I watched, hidden from behind the railing of the walkway. He jabbed Devon with it and he screamed and fell to the ground. He tried to get up but he was shoved down by the second thug. I snarled in anger and leapt from behind the railing.
I could tell my dad had spotted me but he didn't say anything that would alert his oppressors. I crept up behind the one who had shocked my dad and swung Claw at him. He shrieked in pain and fell to the ground. I grinned, enjoying it. The second whipped around and in a second a machete was in his hand. His wounded ally tossed him the electric device so that he held a weapon in each hand.
"I've heard a lot about you, you little chunk of scum," he hissed, turning up the shocker until the buzz was really loud. "Been a lot of trouble for some of my buddies lately." A blissful memory of me punching someone in the face flitted through my mind.
"Oh, those morons were with you?" I asked, remembering the night raid on my family's cruise ship a few weeks ago. I glanced at the other gunmen, who had seen the standoff and were charging from their previous posts at the entrances. One had a riot shield and they all held menacing machine guns and rifles. They make a semicircle behind the man, guns pointed at me. I knew I could easily take all of them in a fight. I raised my sword and snarled.
I darted for a nearby pile of couches and potted plants that now served as cover, and sprang off it into the air. A shrieking blaze of bullets flew towards me and I slashed through the attack with Claw. I landed on one of the men, kicking in the face with my boot as I did, and then sliced another. I noticed that the bullets I had deflected mid-air had apparently killed two of the thugs and wounded three more.
One of the men turned his rifle on me and I swiped out at the weapon with my boot. It flew out of the man's hand, still firing madly. I deflected one of the bullets with my sword and watched in satisfaction as more of my opponents collapsed to the ground, moaning. Only nine of them were left. I dived under a stream of bullets that shredded a nearby couch.
Jumping to my feet I slashed my attacker twice and surged toward the next three who hadn't retreated a few steps back when they saw me going ham with my blade. I dispatched them without them even being able to react. Five left.
As I vaulted towards them I saw one of them trying to load a canister of napalm into a flamethrower. I slashed down two of them in quick succession, but then the goon with the riot shield swung the shield at me. I leapt over it but he raised it up to protect himself as I came down upon him I chopped it twice before realizing that the thing was made pretty well. A quick slice to the feet with my cape took care of him, but by then the gunman with the flamethrower had gotten it loaded.
I grabbed my cape again and whipped it in front of me just as the terrorist opened fire. A wall of raging blue flames engulfed me, flowing over the fireproof cape. The heat was unbearable even when protected by the cape. I had to to get out of there. I arched up into the air and behind the man. A quick hack of Claw ended that problem.
I turned to face the only one left, the hooded man with the shocker device. It still crackled dangerously and every once and a while a spark would spring off it.
"So I see you're as annoying as I've heard, you little piece of crap," he chuckled wickedly.
"I take that as a compliment, coming from someone I'm about to beat up," I replied,my eyes darting to my father, who stood cowering behind a couch a few yards away. He was fine. My eyes flicked back to the man standing in front of me. He was going to pay.
"Of course, it'd be more fun for me if you got blown the-". He said something that made my dad cringe. "-up! But although it was fun to beat up your old man, I didn't actually need him for anything."
How did he know my secret identity? But it didn't matter, that little bit of info would die with him in less than a second. "On that lovely night a few weeks ago while you were "enjoying" the raid on your cruise my distraction allowed somebody by the codename of Vesper to sneak in here and take what you're dad was working on."
"Here comes the monologue," I gritted my teeth.
"Never told you what it does? Well then, why should I ruin the surprise?" He pulled down the black sleeve of his leather jacket, revealing a complicated device strapped to his arm. It was about a foot long and the top of it was devoted entirely to a control pad full of tiny red buttons. I could hear Devon gasp from where I stood. "Wasn't it called the pyro-atomizer, Devon!?" he roared savagely. My dad looked completely stricken. "I knew you'd show up to save your dad, so it this would be pefect place to screw you over."
Then he held up his arm, fist clenched, the device's pulsating barrel pointed directly at me.
