Isaac: Chapter 13- Radio Rumble
I knew one thing. I needed to retrieve a radio. If I had a radio, I could listen in on updates about the government. Maybe I would be lucky enough to hear that there were rebels out there. Was I possible that other people were fighting? I hoped so.
I stared at my house. My poor house. The things it had witnessed in the last few hours alone. It'd laughed with us, it cried with us, and it was killed along with my family.
That last one was literal. As I looked at my house, one of the Energizers threw fire at it. The house instantly went ablaze. All those happier times were burned with it.
I watched the fire melt the house. Then, the fire turned to smolder. When the smoke cleared, only metal parts remained. I looked carefully across the street. No one was around. I ran across the street. First, I went into the house to retrieve batteries and some food and drinks.
To get the other item, I need to go outside. I ran outside, and picked up the I unplugged it, that creepy voice came on again.
"Hello again, my loyal subjects. I am asking that you would watch out for a girl. She has escaped from me. She is rather short, no more than five-six. She has brown eyes and is warring black clothes. Look for long, dark hair, and finally, if she fits the description and energy-manipulates, bring her to me... Alive. Wait a minute folks. What? The others escaped too. How did they outsmart you? Nevermind. New news report. I want all nonmortals captured. The Great Hero must end."
With those last words, chills were sent down my spine. I had to sit down. The dangerous situation had just become deadly. No Nonmortals were safe. One question remained in my mind. If he was going to kill us, why did he want us alive?
There was a positive message hidden in there. Now, I knew there were at least two other people out there in the same situation. I had to find them.
I looked over at the pool. The sun was setting. To think, just a few hours ago I was laughing and enjoying my family. Now, I could barely hold back my tears.
The colors in the sky were incredible. How could nature make those colors? I slowly got up. The pool reflected those heavenly colors. We'd left some things in the pool. I don't know if it was crazy or not, but I decided to clean up the pool. There were two giant inner tubes. I took those out first. Then, I grabbed all the toys. All that was left was a raft. I turned to get the raft. I went to get the raft. The water started bubbling. I looked closely at the water. It seemed like something was coming up. What was it?
A box popped up. I jumped back. I grabbed the box. It had written on it "Element Manipulations of the Masters." The box had etchings of different elements and moves. I put it in my backpack. Who sent it? It just appeared out of nowhere.
"Hello again." That evil little voice had returned. I turned around and the girl who I fought earlier had just come out of the door. I stood erect now. My body shivered at her. She looked... Messy. Rocks were scattered around her hair. Done by yours truly. Her face was brown, and her clothes were torn up. You could see the rage in her eyes.
She created fire then put her hands up. She threw fireballs at me. I blocked them with earth walls. She yelled out, "You're gonna be dead when Sapphire Serious is done with you!"
I ran around. I thought that if I could tire her out, then, I might be able to escape. After a few minutes it seemed that was a bad idea. I started kicking up my game. I threw rocks then entire boulders at her.
She broke them up with fire and lightning. We danced back and forth. She would take the offensive then I would take the offensive. For about an hour we battled at our hardest. I could tell. Exhaustion was getting the best of her. Every fireblast, every lightning bolt she threw at me, was getting lighter and sloppier.
She started throwing herself on the ground with every move. She could barely stand. I took a small rock, picked it up and threw it at her (Using earth manipulation) at top speed. It hit her in the head. She fell back. The next thing I did was bury her alive. I hoped she never returned.
A/N- well that was chapter 13. Let me know what you thought and whether you think Sapphire should make a return later in the series.
