Tetra exited the alley and was amazed at the size of the store and was excited to go in and hopefully try on some new clothes and get some jewelry too. Tetra heard Dawn and ran to her so they could all go inside.
The zombie's prey managed to pull away before losing a hand. Yet it still managed to sample the man's flesh and blood... It let out a fiendish cackle before lunging at the man again! but was quickly stopped by some other creature which grappled with it and tossed him into the air. As it was lifting off, the zombie reached for Machulk's wrists, clamping down, digging it's fingernails into the Pokeyman's flesh, pulling the creature into the air with it. Once Machulk was close enough, the zombie sank his open maw into the boy's right shoulder...
Before Machulk could think about the rest of his plan, he was grabbed painfully by two of his wrists and was in the air with the Zombie. "HEY NOW, THIS WAS A ONE CREATURE FLIGHT BUDDY!!" Then while in the air the zombie got close enough and sank his jaws into Machulks right shoulder, causing him to scream and scream loudly... He tried to yell down to his friend, "HURRY UP AND SHOOT THE DAMN THING!!" He hoped his voice reached down there.
Terrence cussed a string of curses in an unknown language as his temporary ally was...pulled along for the ride so to speak thus forcing said change in plans as he condensed the sphere of energy in his palms into a small point and in a violent motion swiped a single arm forward taking the condensed energy with it and emitted a incredibly intense thin beam of ki even as Machulk was yelling down at him. It sniped through the air at incredible velocity and slightly arched to match the pair's trajectory with the tip of the beam moving to accurately lance through the biting zombie's head taking advantage of it being still while biting down. Then he'd snap his arm up and pull the thin beam up if it punctured to split the zombie's head open. '..I doubt he realizes how goddamn hard it is to make an accurate shot like that, just shoot he says, oh sure i"ll just fire accurately like a fucking sniper to a fast moving arcing target..' he growled internally ready to react to a however this played out.
Blood oozed down the zombie's bottom lip as the undead man prepared to take another bite out of the transformed boy's shoulder... However, like with Terrence before, it only got a sample as a burst of energy struck him in the chest, narrowly missing Machulk. They were across the street, above a building only a couple of stories shorter than where they started. So when the zombie lost his grip on the transformed boy's wrists, he wouldn't have far to fall.
The building Terrence stood atop would shake momentarily, as a something green launched from a lower-level balcony, rocketing towards the pair in midair; it was Ryuusei, his body wrapped in a vortex of green gales with the tip around his extended fist.
...Well they WERE green, as he rapidly approached the zombie, an Aurora surrounded his Body as well...However it was predominately white instead of black. (The...FUCK?!)
When the zombie saw this thing coming right at him, the hungry look in his eyes was replaced by something else...
When the fist struck the creature's jaw, there was an explosion of air and a violent snap as the zombie's head jerked backwards before FLYING off of his shoulders! The Aurora surrounding his body vanished. Meanwhile, Ryuusei shifted his body. He then performed a spinkick, drawing back in much of that released air. "RONDOSENPUU!" The mothion of his leg released an air blade in an arch, cutting the creature in half.
Afterwards, ryuusei landed on the roof, the Aurora still shining around him.
Machulk was still hurting and grimacing in pain as the zombie wanted another bite of him then Terrence's shot hit and then also all of a sudden something else hit the zombie, also barely missing Machulk. It was Ryuusei! Machulk was relieved to see him as well but then had a Moment of slowness as he looked down to see where he was and he fell fast hitting the ground of another roof but hitting hard and as he laid there managed to wave a hand over his wrist and change back to Stephen. He just laid their close to blacking out from pain...
Narrowing his eyes as he watched events play out he mentally filed away the highly important information he just took in noting how cleanly Ryuusei's technique carved through the zombie's dark aura like it wasn't there, on one hand it was frustrating that his own skills were having zero effect on the monster and didn't know what else he could have done if this happy turn of events didn't happen like it did. 'I have questions..ones that I hope can be answered later, maybe its an element related thing if that's the case..maybe I have a weapon tucked away that can help but again I won't know till I find out why his shit worked while mine didn't.'
Leaving that thought for the moment he vanished from the office rooftop in a crimson streak he lept in a single motion over to the building Machulk had landed on, "Oi you still alive over here?" he called as he landed noting how the boy had changed back and saw the blood seeping out of the injury he had taken "y'did good kid.." he mumbled as he reached under his cloak to hide the fact he pulled roll of simple gauze from his dimensional storage and didn't hesitate to pull off Stephan's shirt to skillfully wrap the injured shoulder and wrists to staunch the bleeding before replacing the shirt. Briefly waving in Ryuusei's direction to acknowledge his presence he picked up the unconscious teen and lept down the side of the building doing a flip through the air and kicking off off of the one nearby to bleed off momentum so the teen's body wouldn't be jarred to much as he finally landed on the ground. He'd follow the sounds of sirens from where the monster first came outta the ground assuming emergency teams would be on location planning to leave the unconscious Stephan with them so he could get proper treatment.
Ryuusei let himself fall onto the roof that Terrence, the unconscious boy and the severed zombie were on. His body still glowing with the Aurora. "What the hell happened here?" Questioning the older man as he dressed Stephen's bleeding injury. However, instead of giving an answer, Terrence carried the boy back down to the street as sirens could be heard rapidly approaching. To which Ryuusei fallowed...and quickly ducked around the corner.
Before long, an ambulance arrived, fallowed by two police cars. The EMTs loaded the boy into the ambulance and sped off, meanwhile a man in his 40s approached Terrence. The man flashed a Badge and introduced himself. "I am Lt. Nakamura, I'd like to ask you a few questions about this incident."
Terrence let out a brief sigh of relief as the ambulance took off with Stephan "Its good that he'll get proper treatment, those were some harsh bite marks.." he mumbled to himself before turning to address the Officer whom introduced himself "I'd say its nice to meet you Lieutenant however its lamentable that it has to be under these circumstances." He admitted with a sigh before bowing his head in greetings and respect to the officer before offering his own name "Terrence Knight, I'll offer what information I can in regards to what transpired however might I ask if all the other civilians got away safely? I tried to get people to scatter when that monster came out from the sewers." He idly rubbed his wrapped hand which was showing a little red of blood through it. "Nasty bite that thing has.." As he spoke he was studying the officer's body language and was getting a feel for his intents listening to his instincts to see if he should trust Officer Nakamura or not.
He thumbed back in the direction he came from "May we talk on the way, about a block and a half in that direction is where I had help stopping that..thing. I want to make sure no one touches the remains, I can tell you straight up there was nothing natural about it and I worry about what might happen if someone tries to take bits of it for study or the such." He felt Ryuusei still nearby but in hiding currently so he'd avoid speaking much about him until he chose to show himself if at all, until then he'd offer up as much detail about the incident as he could. So long as the officer was on the up and up Terrence wouldn't hesitate to be cooperative and forthcoming.
Lt. Nakamura put away his Shield, "Would you prefer these circumstances, mt. Knight?" flashing a pair of handcuffs, before quickly putting them away and instead gave the younger man a polite chuckle. He gave a nod and fallowed Terrence to where the bulk of the fight ocured; meanwhile signalling to his men and the other rescue workers to secure the area.
"To answer your question, Mr. Knight, yes we were able to get them all to safety. That is how we had gotten your description. And there is video evidence of your action." From both Traffic Cameras...and from cell phones; a thought that made the Policeman groan as footage of some cannibalistic monster might cause a panic, once it hit the net.
As they walked, Nakamura listened to the younger man's take on the situation, and nodding. "I understand your concern, but we will need to bring them in." He'd want the remains disposed of...but knew that wouldn't be the case. The Government would have them moved to a lab somewhere; it was ALWAYS the case when a case like this came up...
Four men in hazard suits arrived on the rooftop where the fight ended, only to find nothing...
Back down below...
"Do you have any idea where this...thing came from?" He'd of course seen the tape, the zombie burst up through the street, with the half-eaten body of a Civil Engineer in tow. (May the Kami rest his soul...)
Terrence snorted with a slight grin at the officers humor when the cuffs were brought out however he did shake his head "You'll have to forgive me if I say I'm not overly interested in those particular circumstances. I am however relieved to hear that they all made it away safely with the exceptions of whomever was under the street there at the time..my condolences to their families." he sighed quietly shaking his head at the thought. "I did what I could to drive people away in the off chance I couldn't..relocate that thing which I was able to thankfully although not quite as effectively as I would have hoped."
"I don't envy the probable shitstorm thats likely to come up once those recordings spread around.." he commented correctly guessing what the officer was sighing about before he pointed up to the rooftop where he had engaged the zombie "I do get where yer coming from, something like that ..thing of course is going to have the government tryin to study it so I understand that it can't be disposed of..just wish it wasn't so. As far as I'm concerned..something like that should be disposed of immediately and I probably would have tried had I not prioritized bringing that injured lad back to the ambulance."
he sighed and scratched the back of his head "I suspect you probably have similar thoughts, that there are some items that really shouldn't be studied, it just runs far too many risks. But enough of that for now I guess, for what its worth I couldn't even begin to tell you where that may have come from what I can say in my experience in dealing with uh..weird and dangerous shit that thing -felt- wholly unnatural, it ain't from around here." he quieted down for a moment after looking like he wanted to say more but appeared hesitant about something. "Let us pray there isn't any more, from what I experienced it was able to produce an aura that seemingly made it impervious to attacks, at least to the extent I was willing to us within a populated area, if by chance another one is spotted all i can strongly advise is luring it away from public areas trying to fight it will just get men killed."
He folded his arms and lightly drum his fingers on one of bicep "It wasn't till the end of the fight when someone else came out and dispatched it almost immediately that I got a clue about how its protection worked, I'd guess it was some kinda elemental barrier that when was struck by an opposing element simply winked out of existence and the creature took severe damage from the attack. So whatever that creature was there is someone around here who's essentially wielding its direct opposite and can put it down. Unfortunately I was preoccupied with bandaging up the wounded kid to know much beyond that, my apologies."
