Chapter 19 Avenge and Rescue Part 2
We were covered in cuts. I could feel the warm flow of my blood run down my arms and mouth. Nick dragged his broad sword across the ground. The pain in his arms from the cuts made it harder for him to hold it. I felt half dead with the condition I was in. I'm surprised I'm still standing although this wasn't the first time we've been caught in this condition or worse. We've caught pirates as reckless as this before.
Nick and I locked eyes. I could see a deep cut under Nick's left eye. He had more similar to it all down his arms. He was breathing hard and swaying. He looked like he could pass out any second. I knew he wouldn't though because the look on his face told me he had an idea. He smirked at me and then nodded his head. I smiled back at him. I knew he wanted to use THAT attack. It was stronger than our tornado.
Together we took a deep breath. I only drew two of my swords and held them like an X. Nick had his sword held over his shoulder. We exhaled yelling "TWIN MULTI SLASH!"
Together we slashed our blades over and over at the large man. The man tried to shield himself from our attacks by holding his sword out in front of him but it was to no avail. Our slashes pushed him like a wave. With each wave more gashes were added to his body. He wasn't falling over though. Why doesn't he just give up?
Nick and I slashed one final fatal blow together and it managed to knock him backwards with one of his feet in the air.
"What are you demons?" The man yelled. Then he held his giant sword high above his head. "Demons should live in HELL!"
His sword plunged into the ground and split open the floor. The ground beneath us was crumbling and jutting out. It was as if he really did open the gates of Hell. As pieces of the floor fell away we had to jump from place to place that still had ground. It's not like we were tired enough from nearly being cut to death. I don't know how much more of this I can take. Why the heck won't he just die!
Nick and I finally found some ground stable enough to stand on. It was only a small amount of ground though.
"Alex," Nick said glaring at the man. "You know what he reminds me of?"
"What? We don't have time to compare him! We're supposed to get rid of him!" I said exasperated.
"No, look at his mask and his build. Doesn't he remind you of someone?" Nick asked.
I looked at the man and it hit me. Why didn't I notice it before? He looks like the masked man from the island years ago! It couldn't possibly be him, could it? I can't believe it but he even cut us in the same places as before and reopened our old wounds.
Nick looked over at me and he could tell I knew what he was talking about now. He smirked and said "Let's pay him back for what he did to us."
I smiled back and nodded, "definitely."
I put away one of my katanas. I would only need one for this blow. We took off from our spot and hopped from place to place to reach him. The masked man saw us advancing towards him and raised his sword above his head.
"Die demon bastards!" He yelled and slashed his sword toward us. "Go to He-"
We dodged his slash and reached him. Nick cut his chest and I cut him in the back, the same spots where we were cut long ago. There was a single second of silence before his blood spilled and he fell to the ground.
"YES!" Nick rejoiced fist pumping the air. "We finally killed him!"
"Wait what's that noise?" I asked. There was a faint ticking noise coming from under the masked man.
We froze in our enjoyment as we started realizing what it was.
"Oh God… please don't tell me it's…" I started but then the room exploded. Nick and I started flying.
"Why does he have a freakin' BOMB!" Nick screamed as we sailed through the air.
I punched into probably the 20th mirror so far screaming "Come out coward!"
My hand was probably going to feel so sore later but right now the adrenaline rush was numbing that particular pain. Glass was shattered all over the floor and I was running out of mirrors to smash.
"You can't hide from me forever!" I yelled and busted yet another mirror.
"Who's hiding?" The annoying Vadimus guy asked.
I spotted his face in the mirror to the right of me and swung at him but this time something different happened. A dark demonic hand shot out of the mirror and caught me by the wrist.
"What the hell?" I exclaimed as I tried to wrench my arm out of its grasp.
"If facing me is what you seek then facing me you'll get!" With that, the demonic hand pulled me into the mirror, into a separate dimension.
I can't believe it. Pressure points don't work? This is impossible! No, I won't accept this. There has to be some place I can jab at him and get him paralyzed. I have to do this for Archie's sake.
The four eyed freak threw some more needles at me and I spun away to dodge them. Now I wound up behind him. It's a perfect opportunity. I jabbed behind his knee caps and he fell to his knees. I was going to jab at his spine but he threw more needles so I had to jump away.
He stabbed his acupuncture needles into his knees and to my horror he was able to get up again.
"I told you it doesn't work!" he yelled as he threw more needles at me.
I tried dodging them but I was feeling sluggish and still in a daze from my failed attack. I realized I couldn't get out of the way in time but so what if a needle hits me. It's an acupuncture needle. They should be too thin to cause any real damage if they were to stick me.
One hit me in my arm. The impact actually pushed me back a few feet and to my astonishment it actually hurt. I looked at the needle to see it was thick and blood was sliding down my arm! These weren't real acupuncture needles!
I pulled the needle out of my arm and threw it at the ground.
"I'm going to ki-" I stopped when I realized something even more terrifying than my pressure points not working happened. I could no longer move or feel my arm anymore! He was using my own tricks against me!
"You understand now don't you?" the four eyed freak said smirking. "You can't win. I have you beat. Now go and die like a good boy."
He shot out a bunch more needles at me again. This time it looked like twenty but my vision was blurring so I could be wrong. I staggered to try to dodge but my feet weren't working. I was going to really pass out this time. Before I knew it I felt the needles stab into my arms legs and chest. The impact was so much that I started flying through walls. Then I lost consciousness.
That bomb blew us to practically the other side of the building. Nick and I were both still very lost but thankful we somehow did not die from that. We didn't even black out from it. We were pretty sore and injured though. Nick and I were leaning on each other for support with our arms around each other's shoulders.
"Why did he have to have a bomb?" Nick asked weakly.
"I don't know… but I have a feeling there is probably some all powerful being smiling and laughing at us in a sick twisted way for some reason," I replied trailing off.
Nick stared at me for a moment like he didn't know how to respond to that then said, "Um, let's just find Pancake."
"Good idea," I agreed.
We shuffled along down the hallway until we reached a fork in the road.
"Great, now which way do we go?" Nick asked looking from one direction to the other.
"Um, let's go to the right," I decided.
"You sure? I think the left looks better," Nick replied.
"Why the heck should I listen to the no-sense-of-direction guy?" I said sarcastically.
"I don't know what you're talking about. I have a great sense of direction," Nick said defensively.
I looked at him dumbfounded for a second. He can't be serious. I'm pretty sure he has a sixth sense of direction to go the opposite way of where normal people would go.
"Why are you looking at me like that?" Nick asked after a few minutes.
I couldn't even reply to him because suddenly something came crashing into the wall between the fork in the road making it now one big hallway instead of two separate ones. I couldn't tell what it was but it was a blur of black, white, and blue. A dust cloud and debris scattered everywhere making it hard to see anything for a second. Nick and I coughed on the dust cloud and moved around to see what it was that crashed.
When the dust cleared we were surprised to see Kody knocked out and slumped against the wall he just tore a hole through. He didn't look so good either. Blood was trickling down the side of his face and many needles were impaled in his skin.
"Wonder what happened to him," I said out loud as we crept closer to him.
Nick took his boot off for some random reason and pulled off his sock which looked really sweaty and gross.
"What are you doing?" I asked.
"Just waking him up," he replied.
"What? No, you'll kill him!" I exclaimed.
"Too late," Nick snickered and swung the sock over Kody's nose.
Kody woke up with a start but then fell back unconscious again. He looked even deader than before.
"I told you, you'd kill him!" I exclaimed and then swatted Nick in the back of the head.
"Ow, you know I probably already have a concussion from when that bomb went off and now I could go into a coma," He rubbed the back of his head.
"You think we should at least take the needles out," I said totally ignoring Nick's complaint.
"Probably…" Nick said staring at the numerous needles.
"You get his legs; I'll get his arms and torso."
"Okay," Nick nodded and started pulling needles out of Kody's legs.
I started pulling needles out of his sides first. They were pretty big needles. If Kody got stabbed in the heart from one of these he would probably die. What the heck was he fighting anyway; A porcupine? I take another needle out of his side and just before I can put it down, Nick bumps into me and I fall forward. I landed on Kody and the needle I was holding stabbed him in the stomach. Kody's eyes snapped open suddenly and his face looked angry.
"Kody?" I said unsure as to what was going to happen next.
Kody ignored me and seemed to think I was invisible. He just jumped up with his eyes ablaze.
"RARG!" He roared and all the needles left in him flew out.
Nick and I just stared at him thunderstruck. What the heck is going on? What are we supposed to do now?
"Damn you four-eyed freak! You will be obliterated!" Kody yelled before running down the hall in a dead sprint.
"Um, what just happened?" Nick asked confused.
"I'm pretty sure I don't want to know," I sighed before continuing on our journey to find Pancake.
Okay, I'm really confused with what just happened with the mirror thing. I have no clue where the heck I am and why there are blocks the size of my head floating around the room. The room was all just blank except for the block. I couldn't even see the end to this thing.
"Am I in some freaking labyrinth?" I yelled frustrated. "I thought you said you were going to face me, coward! Come out already!"
I turned around to see if there was a door or something to get out of this weird place but instead I came in contact with a pair of gigantic violet eyes.
"Ah!" I screamed startled and almost fell over.
"Now you will see why it was a bad idea to challenge me," the eyes, I'm guessing is the Vadimus guy said.
"We'll see about that," I challenged.
Vadimus gave out a low evil laugh before the room started turning. The room tilts like it's rolling in circles so I start rolling too unable to stop myself.
"In this world I command everything! I AM God!" Vadimus yelled. I think he was starting to form a big head from the way he talks about himself. And I thought I was vain.
"Make it stop…" I moaned getting a bit dizzy. I felt like I was pretty much in a washing machine.
Miraculously the room did seem to stop turning. My eyes wouldn't stop dizzying though and I tried to stand up. That just resulted in me swaying.
"Now backwards!" Vadimus said maliciously.
Now the room is tilting backwards.
"No!" I yelled as I started falling over once again.
Just as I was falling I saw one of the floating blocks coming at me so I grabbed onto it thinking I could stop the tilting but that didn't work. The block was moving too. My hands slipped and I started falling again but this time into some black hole that opened up in the floor or was it the ceiling now?
"Stop!" I screamed as I fall inside the black abyss. I saw a tree branch sticking out of the sides of the wall. That was pretty random since the rest of the room was white except for the black hole. Where the heck did that come from? None of the less I grabbed onto it to stop my fall. "Please don't break, please don't break."
To my horror the branch started breaking. CRAP! The branch snapped off the side of the black hole and I started falling again deeper into the hole.
"No matter what you do you can't escape me!" Vadimus cackled. I really hate this guy.
For some reason I have this burst of energy and it felt great. I was no longer in danger of falling unconscious anymore. And those needles didn't do squat to me. I am invincible! All I know is that I'm super pissed and the rage felt awesome.
I found the room where I left the annoying four-eyed freak and ran at him. He looked pretty surprised to see me.
"Four eyes!" I yelled as I charged at him.
The guy panicked and threw more of his needles at me. I'm not afraid of those useless things anymore so I didn't bother to dodge them. They stuck me four times in my shoulders. I can feel the pricks of the needles and for some reason this angers me. I scream loudly and flex my arms. The needles shoot out of me like they did before and have no affect on my nerves whatsoever.
"How?" Four eyes exclaimed. "He's not even supposed to move!"
I'm still coming at him full speed and when I'm close enough I punch him square in the jaw. Blood rushed out of his lips and I swear I might have broken a few of his teeth. His glasses flew to the ground and he immediately started searching for them.
"Where. Is. Archie!" I enunciated as I took steps toward him.
Four eyes found his glasses and put them on. They were cracked on the left lens. When he saw me he started scooting away from me on the floor. I wasn't going to let him get away. I started walking closer to him and the guy panicked. He threw more needles at me but I deflected them with the palm of my hand. The guy looked so scared he probably pissed himself.
I grabbed him by the collar and held him close to my face. I said calmly, "Tell me. Where is he?"
"H-he's not here. W-we tricked y-you," He stuttered.
My eye started twitching after that. So many emotions built up in me and the most prominent of them all was anger.
"WHAT!" I exclaimed.
"Well, we ARE illusionists," Four eyes said like that was the perfect excuse.
I didn't know what to do with myself so I jabbed the guy in every pressure point possible and dropped him on the ground. The only nerves in his body that would be able to move are on his mouth.
"Where did you put him?" I asked.
"V-Vadimus, the captain, has him," Four eyes replied.
"Vadimus," I snarled under my breath. He'll be my next victim. He's going to pay for taking Archie and pissing me off in this stupid maze of his.
Right now we are following a trail of broken mirrors in hopes that it was Pancake who smashed these. It's a miracle we found a trail at all. It's terrible to feel lost. It makes me feel like I'm my brother. That's horrible.
"Hey Alex, what's over here?" Nick asked. I looked up to see he wasn't even on the mirror trail anymore. Why was I not surprised? Instead he was somewhere by a black wall.
"I thought I told you we were following the mirrors. Whatever is over there is probably nothing," I replied.
"Hey, I think it's a door," Nick said clearly not even hearing me.
"Didn't you hear me? You're probably just delusional from fighting the masked muscle head." I said.
Nick then actually opened a door in the black wall. "It IS a door."
"Whaat?" I ran over next to him and indeed it was a door. My jaw was dropped.
"What? I told you a door was here," Nick said looking at me quizzically.
"You actually found something. YOU," I said shocked.
"Don't act so shocked. It wasn't that big of a deal," Nick said getting a little annoyed. Why doesn't he understand that this is big for him? He always gets lost and can't find anything even if it's sitting right in front of him! "C'mon let's just check out this room."
We entered in the room to find it completely white. The carpet, the walls, the ceiling, everything was white. There was a bed with drapes hanging off it which was also white. There were no windows and the only thing in that room that wasn't white was a chair and Pancake happened to be sitting in it. Across from her was a dark haired boy who looked like he could be thirteen and was wearing a white cape and top hat. He was waving a silver pendant in front of her face and Pancake's eyes looked like they were spiraling.
"Why I do believe I have more guests," The kid chuckled when he noticed us. He only looked at us through the corner of his violet eye and smiled.
"What are you doing to Pancake?" Nick asked angrily.
"Nothing of course," he chuckled again. "Just taking over her mind."
"Stay away from her!" I yelled then Nick and I charged towards him with our blades ready to strike.
Before we could even reach them something knocked us over and a big iron cage fell from the ceiling and trapped us. What hit us? A force field?
"Now, don't be so hasty. Sit back and watch as I unravel your beloved Captain's mind to mush," The kid said. If you ask me, Pancake already looked like her mind was mush. She was in a daze and drooling. Definitely looked like she had no brain.
"Let her go, you sick freak!" Nick yelled punching at the bars to the cage like his strength was enough to break them.
"It's a little too soon to be worrying about other people now, isn't it?" Vadimus said with an amused smile. "Don't worry. You're turns are next."
A/N: So this took me FOREVER to write. Mostly because school is evil and was preoccupying my time. Sorry it's a little short than most of the other chapter but I felt like it needed to stop right about here. Thanks to you all who read Captain Pancake.

I know some of you think that's confusing to read but they had to happen. XD Sorry. So my college courses finally ended. I just need to take my final tomorrow and then I'll only have high school classes on Tuesday and Thursday so that gives me LOTS of time to write in Captain Pancake.
