The Third and Final Act: Everything Dies
Equipped with FTL capabilities, the Talmut fleet plowed through the almost defenseless outer Ninjan Fleets unchallenged. The last leg of his conquest rest on the Ninjan home world of Xiox, the Omega System Alliance finally rallied the forces to combat the fleet; by now most were backed into a corner. If Xiox feel the entire Omega System Alliance would fall with it.
“The Earthlings have defeated Gaia, and Catalina.” A scout reported at one knee before his powerful emperor. “Hmm…Catalina’s demise was an unexpected one; her plan seemed so full proof.” He murmured gently stroking the dead body of Madison Maynard. In terms of sheer size, the Talmut Emperor stood 8’9 with a grungy blue tint. Because of the ostentatious battle suit he often wore very little were actually able to see his distinct features.
His paralyzing yellow eyes peered through the viewing globe as his massive fleet continued shredding the OSA forces. “Send the rest of the fleet, and proceed according to plan. I will keep my promise to the dark queen. I will eradicate the earth” His body slowly began to take a low glow before disappearing to the surface of Xiox with the body of Maynard to claim his prize.
His forces closer to the Solar System experienced a huge road block, Leonel Pettis, the Azure Son—son of Ziccarra and Alexis Pettis. Filled with rage and guilt sought to shatter the entire fleet by himself. Many of the Talmut’s ships were destroyed in mere minutes of combat with Leonel.
The world breaker vessels were more prepared for the threat he posed, able to withstand the blast of an exploding sun; they could redirect his energy and return fire in full.
Addison’s eyes darted to the curvy blonde in Ian’s possession, before once again fixing on her superior. “So this is just a Tuesday for you?” She jested, trying to add some much needed comedy in such a turbulent string of events. She wanted to ask his plans for the misplaced Maya, in all reality to she could actually stay in this time; being that she bared no resemblance to the Maya of this time; also now that her reality warping abilities were tapped by Catalina.
Her ears perked intently as Ian began to directly blame Leonel and Maya’s parents for their lack of presence during these events. Though she somewhat agreed, she wasn’t going to fully blame their parents. “That’s not all fair sir” She said, slowly hovering around him. “In every universe there is a threat, every reality there is a threat. Regardless of how much we want to blame them…Maya and Leonel should they choose too, could wipe both the Champion and Ziccarra from existence. We have to accept the fact that they’re the threat of this reality, and applaud the fact that they’re on our side.” She said, adhering to the protocols set forth by the Exemplars for addressing a superior officer.
“If you had the power to get rid of them all this time, Why not Y-intercept? a being that has been jumping into multiple realties tormenting and killing people. Why not the Talmut who hang on the fringe of this universe? You’ve got to see the good they can do sir. Not just the bad. I should get going. Xiox is under attack.”
Having used Maya’s warping abilities, Ruby and the entire STRIKE team were back on their Earth getting settled into the H.A.T.V. The challenge was not over; they had to somehow stop an entire fleet from entering the Solar system. “Who the hell are you?” Ruby barked, her aggression aimed at Commander Stacy.
Barnes, Line, Norfleet and Hollins all stood behind Ruby showing their allegiance to the Director, rather the stern commander. Stacy released an arrogant smirk before, removing her glasses. Taking a half-step toward Ruby the arrogant commander extended her hand for a shake—it was not returned.
“I’m Commander Samantha Stacy, I take it your Director Ruby.” She said, folding her hands in front of her, again giving off an arrogant look.
“I don’t remember appointing a commander.” She said, making a fist; as angry as she was, she couldn’t allow her feelings to overrule her judgment. Ruby’s human body was experiencing a series of changes; thanks to Burns and Time Siphon.
“Uh—has anyone seen Yossele and Dio?” Barnes asked scratching his head. “Come to think of it, I haven’t” Norfleet responded heading back to her desk to do a thermal search for the resident idiots.
“You’re wanting back at HQ, the higher-ups are waiting a conference” Stacy said, walking away as if she had better things to do. “higher-up’s”?” Ruby questioned subtly, she kept her composure to keep the cards in her hands—even though she had no clue who they were.
“They’ll have to wait; I’m in the middle of a crisis.” She said, getting a message from one of her detached agents.
"I have Retrofire here. I know you said he was important. He's real eager to get up here. To say the least...but the call is on you. You getting this? Over."
“Great job out there Agent Bradshaw, I’ll send a transport to get you guys up here. We’re going to need all the help we can get.” She responded giving the head nod to Hollins to arrange transport.
“Commander Stacy, I need all agents in the conference room now. It’s time to end this shit.”
