THE BLACK WIND HOWLS
Satan City. While the city was a glimmering beacon of prosperity and peace in another world, another continuity had a separate tale to tell. Yes, it is indeed a prospering city, but is devoid of warmth- a utopia to a dystopia. Everyone knew better than to fight back at this point, it was a foolish move to oppose the strongest fighting force in the universe. Yet, deep below ground was a flame that refused to die... Down into the dark, abandoned subway systems of the city, one would have to find and yank a hidden pulley to access the hidden utopia below the ground. The hidden camp was a large system of tunnels made and carved from the abandoned train rails. Lights flickered on and off, some light petering down from holes in some scattered manholes leading to the surface like a leaky faucet. Some rusty trains loomed like the grim reaper in the tunnels ever still, lights flickering on and off and occasionally letting out a strained metallic groan when the systems began to flicker to life inside. Smuggled, stolen and even some original contraptions lied around, the crowned jewel of them all hidden in the depest reaches of the base.
Down below, the order of the world above was nonexistant. Saiyans, Kagami, Arcosians, and many more lived in relative peace, becoming bound together as a unified fighting force. The Crimson Striker Rebellion was a dying, but persistent quote on quote "terrorist" force. The battle was hopeless, even their leader, Kaula, a super saiyan two, perished like an insignificant bug against the oncoming forces long ago. Their next leader had tried to keep hopes high, but it was pointless- what was the point of fighting a futile battle. But while on a simple mission to gather materials in the Spinach Wastes, the leader found the last hope of a small saiyan that had perished trying to escape this doomed world. A machine that could travel the universes... Was such a thing possible? When the second leader brought the plans back to his followers, they were filled with hope.
"A time machine?"
"Did you hear? There's a way out!""A path to freedom, here of all places..."
"Freeeeeeedom!""We're going to be free!"
"A way out of this pointless world. A way for us to be free.""Our leader will free us!"
"Chai will be the one to free us!""Leader!"
"Chai will save us all!"
Truth be told, Chai did not think it would work, but it was the first time his people showed hope in months. Begrudgingly following through the pressure, the people of the Rebellion began to build the machine, hanging low. The Special Forces had probably grown suspicious after not seeing hide or hair of the Rebellion in months. And now they were here. They learned of the rebellion's secret plan one way or another, and now stood knocking at their door to nab the incomplete machine for themselves, most likely. The old trains stationed in the underground sanctuary took off with Chai's command to evacuate. Only he would stay to hold off the Special Forces, buying time for the others to escape. Chai just hoped no one else would want to fight with him, he wouldn't be able to take seeing what they might do to his dear friends. Use them against him for interrogation? Kill him slowly before his friends? Chai gripped the hilt of his sword and partner, Guardia, simply standing and waiting in the central hall of the hideout...
Both warriors were dead silent as the yells of the escaping rebellion slowly diminished. Chai turned around, eyeing an inconspicuous set of stairs that totally did not have a secret entrance underneath it leading to the hidden universe-hopping machine. Gritting his teeth, Chai had no idea what to do with the thing. For now, the warrior locked both of his fully functional eyes onto the entrance hallway, simply standing and waiting for the final battle to commence. This was the end of it all, the battle for all the marbles. Readying into a fighting stance as unimaginable powers closed in, the goat's fur stood on end. He was going to die. He was scared. But he had to free his friends, somehow. No matter what, the leader of the rebellion would not let the Special Forces scrape a single hair on any one of the Rebellion's followers.
Guardia lay in Chai's grip, a determined and concerned expression in his eye. What would happen after they died here? Who would be the next leader? What would become of the universe-hopping machine? Closing his eye, the sword decided to at least give one of his friends one last goodbye...
While Collan was out on a scouting mission to gather more materials for the universe-hopper, a sudden, familiar voice would nag at the back of his head- it was Guardia! The sword spoke in an urgent tone, with his usual tired ring. But there was a tone of dread in the sword's tone that became clear as he spoke. 'Collan...! I'm... I'm afraid this may be the last time I speak to you.' The sword paused, debating how to word the situation for once. 'The Special Forces are here. They're after our machine, certainly.' Guardia paused, letting that sink in for a moment, and awaiting a response from his friend. Collan's response would not change what the tired and old blade said next. '...Come back to base and fight if you wish. We have evacuated everyone to safety, save for Chai and myself. We're going to stall for as much time as possible- there's no way they will want to kill us quickly... But I implore you to stay where you are. If you come here and fight, you will die, and it won't be painless...' The sword spoke, closing his eye halfway and glancing to the side. Had he made the right choice contacting Collan? He didn't want the little hero to die painfully here to the hands of the special forces, but he didn't want him to feel guilt for not being there during the fight...
