Nine tailed mutant legend
CHP14: A new ally
With the liberation of Michelangelo and Donatello, the central focus is now back on the assailants. Kung Lao along with everyone else have made their way to safe grounds, getting themselves further away from the hazard precinct. After traveling some distance through the forest, the caped crusader gives them all the option of taking a slight break. Kung Lao takes a good look around making sure they weren't followed. Leonardo turns over to his brothers looking very uneasy. He has noticed something crucial; it is the absence of a certain individual.
"What happened to Raphael, wasn't he with the two of you?" Leo asks.
Both Dony and Mikey look over at one another with shrugged shoulders.
"Quite honestly Raphael escaped from that consign a while back." Donatello looks into the sky. "I thought he had met up with you guy's and gave you the directions to where we were being held captive."
"There really is no way of trying to search for him; we have bigger problems to worry about. We might just cross paths with him in the process." Batman tells.
As much as Leonardo wants to find his brother, he knows it would be selfish to turn away from stopping the invasion, besides there is no telling where the turtle Raphael lurks. Kung Lao leads the assemblage down the long path back to the temple.
Peter's eyes unwrap to the sight of Liu Kang and Sonya looking down on him. His vision and sense of hearing are a bit blurry. The lips of Liu Kang move, but the wall crawler can't quite make out what he is saying.
"Maybe we should just let him rest for awhile, that way he can regain his strength." Sonya says with a sigh. "I can't believe those invaders just had their way with this place."
Liu rubs a hand over Sonya's shoulder before heading over to the door.
"Just stay here and look over him, I'm goanna go down stairs and inform Raiden he is awake." Liu informs.
Sonya takes a seat on the sofa located next to the bed. Peter sits up rubbing his eyes, which helps to give him a clearer view. Sonya places a hand over his showing a face of concern.
"How are you feeling?"
He is silent for some moments not saying a word, but remembers the proceedings which occurred earlier. He jumps forward a bit startling Sonya, looking her in the face.
"What happened to Zatanna and Naruto?" Peter inquires.
"I wasn't their, but Liu tells me they took away much of the civilians including the two of them."
His head drops at her response, disappointed in himself for making his past decision to surrender. Peter slides across the bed's top over to the end leaning forward. Sonya gets out of the chair standing, walking over and sitting on the bed next to Pete.
"Why don't you come with me, I think it would do you good to get something to eat? Afterward we will devise a plan to get them back." Sonya tells.
"I guess that will be just fine, but we had better come up with a plan fast." Peter looks into the eyes of Sonya. "Who knows how long Naruto and Zee will be kept alive."
Not needing to say it, Sonya knew Zatanna's abduction is what disturbed the wall crawler most. The two stand together walking over to the exit.
Raphael walks along the plains with Subzero who holds the map. The Lin Kuei member stops their progress, looking around. It is at this moment that Raphael unleashes his Sais.
"No need to inform me, clearly we're surrounded. Stand your ground; I sense there are a lot of them." Raphael informs.
Subzero folds up the map putting it away into a bag, dropping it to the ground afterward. Coming out of the nearby trees, rocks, and bushes are the knights. Raph steps back a little observing Subzero creating a sword out of ice.
"There seems to be at least twenty of them, I'm certain we are close now. This is the only reason Azun would send this many of his fighters." Subzero assumes.
In some strange way the situation only excites the turtle, given his spirit of battle. Both ninjas are circled around, with one of the individuals in the crowd stepping forward.
"The two of you must think you are very clever, with us being here the two of you must believe you draw near Azun's castle."
It is then clarified to them by order of Azun they were to be found and destroyed. Subzero is most surprised with the knights backing off. The leader of them laughs, pulling something out of his pocket. He throws the bean looking object to the dirt, pouring water over it instantly.
"What sort of freak show are you trying to put on?" Raphael jumps forward while spinning his Sais. "If yo boss sent you to kill us, than why are you keeping him waiting?"
It is than Raphael rests a hand over his head, wishing he didn't say a word. The body of mud in front of him moves rapidly, eyeing it very close his worst fear comes true. A creature forms before their vary eyes, standing close to nineteen ft tall. Too make matters worse; it greatly resembles that of a turtle. Its sight most disgusts Raph who lets out a sigh of bitterness. Subzero glimpses over at the clear in command knight.
"If the two of you can somehow get passed our pet here, you will have the pleasure of taking us on."
Not another word or action is made as Raphael runs forward performing a jump kick into their opponent, knocking it off balance. But with share quickness the creature grabs Raphael by his ankle swinging him around in circles. Some of the surroundings knights laugh at this activity. The infuriated turtle is thrown into Subzero tumbling to the ground. Both ninjas kick off one another, showing no weakness to their enemies quickly getting up. Raphael steps back watching as Subzero creates a massive ice blast, shooting it across the way freezing the earth creature solid. The Lin Kuei fighter jumps forward kicking and shattering it into pieces. Raphael steps forward while spinning his Sais.
"You thought that joke of a creation would defeat us? I suggest going back to the drawing board windbag!" Raph yells running forward.
He is stopped short in his tracks with the explosion of the ice. What happens next doesn't surprise Raphael or Subzero, but there is a feeling of agitation between them both. The creature regenerates in no time, still resuming its status as a turtle.
"I wouldn't speak so soon, a reptile like you should not claim victory so quickly."
Raphael almost smiles at the knight's remark, thinking of a particular individual. Subzero creates two swords out of the ice running up next to Raphael. At the exact same time both leap into the air, cutting and slicing at the monster. Raphael gets onto its back slicing away at its shell made of rock and sand. The turtle extends its arm reaching back and whacking Raphael across the face. The turtle performs a spiral going face first into the ground. The turtle stretches its arm out as if it were bubble gum grabbing Subzero by his neck and smashing him into a tree.
Naruto finally awakes with one side of his face resting gently on a cold cement surface. He hops up a bit, taking a look around to see laser prison bars. It is then that he remembers the events which lead up to his current misfortune. The leaf village ninja takes a full stand, letting out a slight yawn. Wanting to test the strength of the lasers was all too consuming, as anything was better than being a prisoner. Besides he has nothing to loose, after they take what they want from him he's basically history. Taking a step forward he holds on tight to a piece of cloth on his outfit extending it some. Getting in closer to the lasers he focuses in taking one gulp.
"I wouldn't if I was you, it won't work. Your chakra has also been disabled within these walls."
Naruto is stunned at the voice, but there is no way this certain person could be captured a long with him. How in the world did he get in this dimension? And how was he captured? Before any further analogues, Naruto looks around to see where the voice came from. To his surprise it was in fact the one!
"Sasuke! How, huh, what?" Naruto asks.
Sasuke smiles a bit at the ninja's facial expression, but holds back realizing the troublesome situation they currently endure.
"I'll be perfectly honest with you when I say I purposely let them capture me. I wanted to know exactly what their full plans are."
Sasuke explains to Naruto his encounters with the invaders, which lead up to him being in this world.
"Do you have any idea what happened to the other residents of the leaf village?" Naruto asks, wanting an obvious good answer.
"I'm not sure why you even care about what's become of them. To tell the truth, it's not good."
Some distance away with on the field, Subzero continues to fight against this new foe along with Raphael. The turtle creature swings its tail around attempting to try and lay the two of them out. The monstrous being grabs Raph by his shell, slamming him into a nearby rock which takes the breath out of him. Subzero takes this opportunity to do something seeing as the creature is off guard. Running at top speed to presume his attack Subzero is grabbed and thrown into the mouth of the turtle creation.
"Nicely done my pet, now finish off that turtle. Just make sure he can't walk, but we need this one alive." A night tells while clapping.
With both Sais in hand Raphael looks up at the monster with much fear. He jumps out of its range just as it stomps at the ground. Raphael takes a look around looking for anything that can tilt the battle in his favor. Thinking fast, the turtle runs across the grass locating a huge rock. Raphael jumps off of the rock leaping into the air and stabbing his Sais into the eyes of his opponent. After doing so, he back flips a few times creating some separation.
"Not so tough without your eyes now are yah? It looks like you will have to sniff around and find me now." Raphael says, relieved.
Raph has no time to relax watching as the creature's eyes regenerate. It is now Raphael shakes his head in a little regret.
"Oh shell, me and my big mouth!"
Raphael runs forward ready to continue the fight. He is only tossed back by the impact of the explosion of the creature. Subzero lies in the middle of the gooey mess. Raphael takes a stand applauding the Lin Kuei master. Subzero stands as well wiping some of the slime off his arms.
"I'm not sure what you mean, but I wasn't the one who did that." Subzero replies
Raph looks over at his colleague confused, if he hadn't done it than who did? Maybe the creature self destructed in an attempt to defeat Raphael, but that didn't seem right. The surrounding knights are also puzzled by this, not having a clue to what just happened. Everyone's answers would soon be answered with the appearance of a figure dropping from high above. The group is astounded to see who stands before them.
"What in the world! Kayla what are you doing here?" Raphael asks.
She looks over in Raph's direction letting out a smirk. The turtle stands his ground holding both his weapons tight.
"Kayla what is the meaning of this? Are you the one responsible for the destruction of my creation?" The commander demands.
Nothing can hold back the smile present on her face, which soon turns into a laugh. The surrounding knights talk among one another, trying to figure out what exactly is going on.
"Isn't it obvious Ted, I'm no longer taking orders from Azun. What the king of our world has sent us here to do is wrong, and the way my gender is treated is beyond unethical!"
Stepping forward the commander does nothing but laugh.
"Silly woman you have no choice but to take orders! You know better than to question anything Azun does or says, you'll have a lot of explaining to do when Azun finds out about this."
"You're mistaken Ted, in fact he will not know a thing about what has happened here today."
Raphael looks over at Subzero who looks back at him, both are a bit confused on to what is about to happen. It is enough evidence for Raph that she is not there to fight them, as she begins her assault on the knights. Wanting to repay her for destroying the turtle creation he jumps in as well. Subzero stands at the side not sure if he wants to get in on the battle. Just the other night this Kayla girl was an enemy to them, not just that but a well trained assassin! Thinking it over he decides to help; besides the knights were trying to gain control of the planet.
"You dirty little traitor! I will cut your head off and take it back to Azun as a souvenir!" Ted yells out.
Kayla smiles jumping up on his shoulders wrapping her legs around his neck leg grabbing him. She throws him into a group of his soldiers. Snatching a Sai away from Raph she stabs it into the heart of Ted. Raphael slashes and slices into many of the knights along with Subzero.
"You should know better than to threaten me, I hope you enjoy after life." Kayla says, kicking Ted to his back.
She quickly pulls the weapon from his body, tossing it back over to its owner Raphael. Subzero freezes three of the invaders solid, sliding over and kicking their heads off. Both Raphael and Subzero look over in time to see the final knight retreating through the bushes. With great aim the Lin Kuei fighter chucks his sword with much force! The blade's tip ends up in the head of the individual. It is at this time that the two earth defenders turn their attention to Kayla. She puts on a smile of guilt.
"Why don't the two of you follow me, there is a stream up ahead. I'll explain everything to you once we're there."
Neither of the two questions her wishes. The two of them seem to be on the same page giving the other the look to stay on guard. It isn't long before they come to a stop; the two ninjas are amazed with the magnificence of the view.
"Wow it's very pretty, talk about breath taking." Raphael emphasizes.
A rainbow has formed over the waterfall, with the passing of pigeons and other birds. Subzero crosses his arms looking over at Kayla ready for some answers; she notices this clearing her throat turning to him and Raph.
"I've been in this world long enough, to understand many different situations similar to that of now. I don't expect either of you to fully trust me, but I mean you no harm."
"Well if that is true, why don't you take us to the hideout of Azun? I still need to repay him back for an encounter we had earlier." Subzero tells.
"I'm sorry, but I cannot do that." Kayla shakes her head. "If I were to take the two of you there, you would be over powered and destroyed. You must have a plan first."
Leaning against a rock spinning a Sai Raphael contemplates a plan on what can be done. Some distance away Azun gets up from the dinner table leaving Quila along with Mia.
"Aren't you going to stay around for dessert, I hear it's your favorite?" Quila asks.
"I'll have some later, for now I have a few matters I need to take care of."
Azun leaves the room in a hurry; walking past the front room he observes a few of his warriors playing a game of cards. Walking down a dark hall he bumps into one of his scientists, who is also a good doctor.
"Hello Dr. Ferris, do you have any clue when your procedures with the blond haired kid will proceed?" Azun asks.
"Id give it about another three days, we must wait for our first analysis to return before continuing on."
Azun pats him on the shoulder informing him of his appreciation to have him aboard the team. Azun continues his way down the hall coming to a stop. He looks around making sure he wasn't followed by anyone. He enters into a room locking it behind him. Looking up from the ground still strapped to the wall is Zatanna.
"What have you done to me, I shouldn't feel this way. Please untie me I can't take this persecute any more!" Zatanna demands.
Azun takes a good look into her eyes, realizing that the serum had taken a huge toll on her body mind and spirit. But was it enough for him to take advantage of her? He isn't quite sure but decides to release her. Once Azun gets into touching distance he ties something around her wrist, which takes away any of her magic abilities. After doing so he unties her jumping back a bit not knowing if she would attack him. But it is clear she does not want to fight falling to her knees, she sticks her hands into her bra feeling and pleasuring herself. Azun just stands by watching listening to her moan. Looking up at him she immediately stops, noticing the desire within his eyes. She stands walking over to his side rubbing her body up against his.
"Come right this way honey, don't be afraid." Zatanna says with a giggle taking Azun's hand.
She leads him over to a couch throwing him onto it while smiling. Azun looks up at her as she begins undressing. He does the same by taking off his cape and upper body armor, revealing his chest. Zee throws her hat to the side kicking off her high heels. She removes everything except for her panties and bra. Azun whistles at her beauty, reaching forward and rubbing a hand across her stomach. Zatanna steps forward resting her hands on his shoulders, sitting herself on top of him. He lies back with his eyes closed as she gives him a smooth erotic lap dance. Back within the end of the forest near a stream, Kayla has finished explaining what she will do.
"So what your saying is we can continue to look for Azun's hideout, but it will be hopeless to stop him just being the two of us?" Raphael asks.
"That is correct, but if you can somehow get some recruits you just might have a chance. I will continue to work with Azun, just so that I can keep a close eye on him. But I've been away for to long, I better head back before they get suspicious." Kayla tells.
"How will we be able to contact you?" Subzero asks.
"Don't worry if the two of you need me, I'll find you. And remember Quila and Mia know nothing about this, and its goanna stay that way."
Kayla begins sprinting back into the forest but stops taking a look back, she winks at Raph blowing him a kiss. She then disappears into the darkness.
"What was that all about?" Subzero asks.
Raphael shrugs his shoulders not having a clue either. The two of them continue their journey down the path deciding to try and attack the invaders weaker bases.
To be continue
