Continued from here part 6

7 watched as Stryfe lowered his hand and several dozen soldiers flew out, "He brought Slayers, I'd say around five squads."

Walker took the binoculars, "Crap."

7 shrugged, "The Slayer model is garbage, they should have used hunters, far fewer weak points."

He hit his comm telling King Adder and Vadim, "The back of the neck and major joints are made of softer metal and the soldiers inside are basically useless without orders so take down the comms."

The soldiers landed a few yards behind Stryfe and were about to fire when King Adder jumped up from the sand behind then and jammed his claws into the necks of the nearest two before sliding back below the sand. As the soldiers were ordered to spread out and find the team Walker and David sat ready with pulse rifles in an ancient ruined building.

7 and Vadim hid themselves away while they waited for the soldiers. In the center of the field Stryfe and Doom stood for a second glaring at each other, the last sons of the Askani and Akkaba clans intended to bring this war to a final end.

They both sent out a vast amount of telekentic force that caused a massive cloud of sand that could be seen as far away as Italy to erupt. They attempted to invade each other's minds but they were equally matched. Finally Stryfe grew annoyed and punched his enemy hard in the face. Doom returned the strike using his telekinesis to bolster his strength sending Stryfe into the air.

Stryfe gave an angry grunt before flying back to slam Doom to the ground. Stryfe was then struck hard with several large stones Doom had ripped up from the sand. He then took to the air as the Supreme Commander shook off the attack and followed.

David and Walker took out five soldiers before they'd been located. The soldiers bombarded the buildings as the two crept away. Vadim burst out of another building and smashed through the soldiers that had come. 7 managed to put a blade through the necks of four of them before being caught. The one that grabbed him immediately regretted it as the Creed stabbed through his elbow and fired a repulser blast in his face.

King Adder had the most before being caught, having taken down an entire squad before being pulled out from the sand. Stryfe halted for a second as he saw his men failing. He yelled into a comm, "Second wave."

Doom took advantage of the distraction and struck him down hard before using as much telekinetic force as he could muster to try and finish the fight. Strye managed to get a shield up but the ground around him was ripped apart. He then sent out a wave of his own that nearly sent his enemy into orbit.

As David and Walker took their second position several Slayers landed behind them. Walker saved them by charging the ground and blasting the soldiers away. They tried to head for the third position but were cut off. Even Vadim was beginning to have trouble dealing with the sheer number of soldiers that beset him.

King Adder and 7 found themselves trapped behind a large stone that had been launched in the fight between Doom and Stryfe as they were fired on by Warforce one. 7 looked to Adder, "We need a weapon with more range."

Adder nodded, "We could also use and army and some vodka but we aren't getting that either."

7 thought for a moment, "Actually we're sitting on a weapon."

He reached into his pack and hurled a device out that was shot down by soldiers and a flame burst out that vaporized the eight soldiers surrounding them and turned a square mile of sand into glass and 7 made an adjustment to his hard light projector and climbed the stone, "Hope this works."

As Warforce one took aim at him 7 aimed his gauntlet right under the ship and fired a blast that mixed his red plasma blast with a large spiked hard light ball from his projector that reflected off the glass and blew a large hole through the transport.

Warforce one then slammed into the ground as its engine blew out. As 7 moved to get off the stone he caught a repulser blast to the back and was hurled to the ground. King Adder was under heavy fire as he dragged 7 away, the only thing keeping him alive was his abnormally thick hide.

David and Walker found themselves pinned down when David had a strange feeling similar to when the Carnage symbiote went wild on him. He was frightened at first but something in his mind put him at ease as the black goo enveloped him. He stood and ran toward the enemy slamming into one and ripping their armor open. Walker peeked out to see as the symbiote formed a symbol of a white tarantula mimicking the one tattooed on David's back.

Vadim stood amid a sizable pile of dead and destroyed soldiers as one of the Slayers held back, "Unit C-78 requesting a buster squad."

A dazed man sits up in the wreckage of Warforce one and looks to see his entire squad dead and all but one of the Buster units destroyed by the exploding engine. Sargent Ed Yeager wipes the blood from his eyes and hops aboard the unit, "On my way."

Doom and Stryfe had seemingly stopped fighting and floated motionlessly in the air.

The Astral plane.

Stryfe looked up surprised as Cable looked down on him looking as he did when the two had their first encounter. He looked around, "Did you think dragging me here would win the fight?"

A sword formed in Cable's hand, "Nope, just gives me more options."

Stryfe stood and a sword formed in his hand as well, "Fine by me, I prefer killing you like this."

@awesam: The next chapter will be the end of Nemesis, its somewhat self contained but there is a few basic things it'd be good to know about going in.

@time_phantom: A big part of the fight between Cable and Stryfe will take place in the Astral plane. Still working on the end but hopefully I don't screw it up.
