Chapter 178: Final battle. The Battle to end all battles. Part 2.

(Meteor Shower in 3 days. Time Runs on its final hours)

(Tess Meets her likely demise. Or Does she?)

(Tess Becomes a Member of the clan. She becomes one of them; A Surprise addition from Spira. It’s ???)

Rikku (Al-Bhed): *Narrating* Yahoo! Hey Everybody. It’s me. Rikku. The Al-Bhed girl that is originally from Spira. Spira is no longer my home anymore. I am now in Metropolis. I am in Metropolis and will sometime soon be wed to Spencer Rubeus Rhapsody. He and I are in love and he loves me. I must be really lucky to earn a guy like him. I just hope that he can keep up with me and i can keep up with him. I think that i can. But we have finally stopped Sin. Brought the calm to Spira. Sin is history. Plus we also sent Yu Yevon off to the great beyond. He’s been taken down too. Spira is now with the eternal calm. Or is it? We’ll find out through calls coming from Wakka and Lulu. Even Yunie… my cousin. Although that isn’t the major problem anymore. While the Rhapsody fighters were in Spira taking care of the huge beast… there has been some details that came out. One being a Disgruntled member of the clan hellbent on an act of revenge and vengeance. Over something that happened years ago. It was a dilemma that happened 18 years prior. And the girl. Betty was her name… She was threatening everyone to bring down the Rhapsody Girls Z! She obviously hated them and it was showing. But now that she has been brought in to be a part of a dark team. Something called the Unholy Trinity. A group that happened to worship and pledge their allegiance to a dark Lord. One known as Lord Darkseid. This started coming out as 3 girls from the Orphanage became members of the family. The 3 girls Janie, Alex and Charlene were set on exposing the dark schemes of the Unholy Trinity. Granny Goodness, Desaad and now Betty. But Betty happened to be with Holy power. Although she was stripped of them. It was given to someone new. A unlikely girl named Kelly Godson. She’s a Bikini Girl… That’s another thing… Metropolis now had an All girl faction. Gang of girls. All Girls. Called the Bikini Girls gang. led by a 16 year old teenage girl named Margaret Trent. They’re followers and all for the Clan. The family had followers. Supporters and Possible allies out of that. But also the fact that there was a man that the world believed dead. A Lionel Luthor. He was back and Alive. How is that even possible? Not only that… there was also the suspicion that had been coming out. That the woman that the clan trusted… was actually a luthor. No one in the family wanted to believe it. I don’t blame them for wanting to feel sour about it. Luthors apparently were not the most admired people. In fact they were nothing to admire at all. And also a Meteor shower was said to come too. In less than 3 days. The clan has a lot to take care of. Alot to resolve. Plus me. I got to get a handle on my new life. I wonder how the New Generation will handle it. Here’s part 2 of Chapter 178: The battle to end all battles.

In Metropolis…

Dec. 25th 2042…

Midnight…

O’aka: *Walking the streets* Ah. Now this a quaint city. Lights and prosperity for even the meticulous of Merchants such as I. Activity by the bushels. ‘Tis a shame that me brother Wantz didn’t seek to come along. The people here are rather festive in their choice of apparel. Vibrant color and stunning amounts of glamour. *Grinning*

Sid’s Diner…

Sid: *Looking at his Wife going for a cup of coffee* Pamela, You’ve been silent since you came home here. Any chance that you’d decide to tell me what happened?

Pamela: No. Trust me. You don’t want to know. However in all fairness… if you had to deal with going against beings like Lady Yunalesca. Sin. Sir Jecht and then Yu Yevon… You’d want to put your head through a wall.

Sid: I take it that there is no discussion coming from this… right?

Pamela: That’s right. It isn’t anything personal… but it is best you didn’t know for now, Sid. You’ve been through hell trying to press on while i was gone.

Sid: No. What drove me nuts was worrying about what was going on where you were. Wondering if you were gonna be alright. I might not have much understanding behind what your friend’s family go through… but it doesn’t mean that i don’t care. Holly was worried about you too. The thing that kills me is that she was asking every other day where you were… I had to sit or stand with a gullible look upon my face. I didn’t know what to tell her.

Pamela: I know. But things will be better. I know it.

Sid: You sure about that?

Pamela: I believe that i am. Why?

Sid: The Meteor shower is gonna be coming here in less than a week.

Pamela: We’ll have to find some underground shelter to safeguard ourselves while the disaster happens.

Sid: How do we do that, Pamela? We don’t have an underground shelter or bunker. This Diner doesn’t have one.

Pamela: Our house does. Sid… Our businesses can be rebuilt. We can’t. Until the meteor shower is over… try to stick close to the house.

Sid: What’ll i do for work?

Pamela: You’ll have to set up a small miniature outlet.

Sid: Pamela, Everything i know is here… My business is the only thing that i built for myself. There is nothing else i can do other than run a Diner. You and Holly are my family. That’s first. Always. But if i don’t have this… I have nothing. Because how will we survive? I can’t expect you to do all the working. It’s not fair to you.

Pamela: I don’t care about that. *Looking at Sid* Sid, Sweetheart. Listen to me good. You can always rebuild the Diner. Diner’s are inanimate things. Buildings. They can hold memories and sense of calm. But also protection. It can also be a place to make into a friendly place for running a business and see people come to eat and munch and socialize. The thing that can not be replaced. is the one running it. That’s you. There is only one of you, Sid. One. You need to have that realized. It’s hard. This is all you know. But if you get yourself killed. staying here when a Meteor shower arrives. It will all mean nothing to worry about this place as it won’t be yours as you’d be dead. You don’t want that, Do you?

Sid: Of course not…

However… A few days later…

Dec. 29th, 2042…

Metropolis University…

Dinah: *Looking at the Asst. Coach* It feels wonderful to be back.

Coach Lightman: It’s great to have you back, Mrs. Rhapsody. I know it’s not much to be said… But the boys here missed you. They won some games without you guiding them. They had to keep in mind of what you always used to tell them. It helped them out a bit. The boys are all set to go though.

Dinah: That’s good. *Sighs* It feels so foreign now for me to be back after being gone as long as i was. It’s like i can’t seem to recall that this is in fact… my job.

Coach Lightman: Why’s that? What exactly happened to you during the time you were gone?

Dinah: What happened? Well… let’s see… When we got to our old family friend’s place to visit him. We just stayed there and spent time with him. The man we knew for years. He was so scared of dying that he kept talking about things like wars. or about countries. Anything stimulating to keep his mind off of dying. He knew that he was on his last days. But the more he had to think of it… the more he was in dread. My sisters Paige and Pearl. They both provided crossword puzzles to him to keep his mind busy. Stimulated as best as we knew how to. It wasn’t as if we were trying to get him to forget about his terminal illness. It was because we saw how much it was upsetting him. His name was Matt Parks. We met him a week after the 4th deadly disaster. our whole family met him. But some of the family had to stick behind. It was only 6 weeks later that we lost him. When we were over at his place and staying with him. Keeping him company. We don’t know what happened exactly. But it happened as fast as a flash. My oldest daughter Sapphire was there in the room visiting him and informing him of all the popular ins and outs of the current generation. Things that she believed had to be in… things that were not. She was the one to see Matt gasp his last breath.

Coach Lightman: Oh god. That’s terrible. Is Sapphire okay?

Dinah: Oh yeah. Yeah… she’s just fine. She’s rattled. but she’s fine. It however managed to take a couple days to snap her out of the frozen shock of seeing someone pass away and go dead right before your very eyes. But when she came to… she was fine again. The rest of the time we were there… We had to help his wife and oldest son Larry with the funeral arrangements. Those were the killers.

Coach Lightman: I’m sorry for the loss though. Heck… If you’re ever needing some means of getting it out and venting. I know of a Psychiatrist that will be around to listen. It’s not to point that you’re unstable. It’s just to vent out your feelings. My Son had to go and see one for 2 years. I might have told you once before but it’s been so long since that time. He went to see one and each time he spoke to the doc. It was like he had no stress. No emotional issues. He had everything out in the open. By time he was 13. which was last year… It was done. He was clear minded. No bull. There was no more need of a doc.

Dinah: Thank you for the info. I’ll keep that in mind. *Looking to see the team* We better have them run some drills. The boys are getting very restless.

Coach Lightman: Oh yeah. *Grabbing his whistle and clipboard* What do you want them to do today, Dinah? What’ll be the pleasure today?

Dinah: Some Up-Downs and a few laps around the track. 15 laps. Tops. Then have them run some defense plays. Work on some of those. I know i was gone a couple months or so. But before i was gone… I saw that the defense was a little stalled. they were a tad slow. Let’s see if we can get them to speed it up a little.

Coach Lightman: You got it.

Out on the stadium lawn of Metropolis University…

Coach Lightman: *Blowing his whistle* Okay boys… Hustle up. Line up. Your head coach is back.

Dinah: *Grins* Hey boys! What’s up?

Quarterback: Yo! Mrs. Rhapsody! Good seeing you back, Coach. *Raising a fist in the air; welcoming Dinah back* We missed you, Coach.

The team all welcomed her. Each one of them ran over to her and grabbed her playfully and landed a head-noogie on to her head. The guys were all jeering and pleased to see her back…

But even with the sweets… there then came the bitter.

Driving from the Metropolis Clock tower…

Tess: *On the phone; Trying to escape from the Mysterious black car* Paige… Pearl… Dinah. I don’t know if you’re able to pick up… But when you get this… take cover. Apokolips is coming. It’s closer and is said to be upon us. I was confronted by Granny Goodness again. Apokolips is Imminent.

*Bump… Slam!*

Tess: *Looking back to see a couple mysterious black cars rolling over to swarm and box her in* Oh god… No!

Minutes later…

Security guard: *Aiming the gun at Tess* Get out of the car right now. Now!

Tess: *Scared*

Security Guard: *Busting the window and forcefully pulling Tess out*…

Metropolis fashion Emporium/Madame Pearl’s and Mystic Stars…

Star: So… How was that Alternate Reality… Spira as it’s called?

Pearl: It was really something. This one city that they have… Luca. It’s got 5 ports and the 3rd one had the Grand Maester’s boat docked. We all had to give the stand ovation to the grand Maester. But their town square… It’s amazing. They have this center piece in the center of the town square of Luca. It’s almost identical to how they had the Town hall’s front entrance in Antonio Bay. In the movie called the Fog. The ’05 version. It looked so much like that.

Star: You’re kidding? Really? *Whistles* Dang, girl… You should have gotten some pictures of that. That would have been inspiring material.

Pearl: That’s not all. I showed some of our designs. The photos of the designs we done to the grand Maester. He flipped out over them. He admired them. So did Maester Seymour. They admired them.

Star: So… our styles are admired there too, aren’t they?

Pearl: Yeah.

Star: What about the others?

Pearl: The others were going wild. It did give me some wonderful ideas for new dresses and skirts.

Amber: *In the back room counting up the totals for the profits made*

Star: Did you take pictures?

Pearl: I think so. It’s one of the few personal things that i have done while there. Although alot of the Designs have this weird symbol on them. *Showing the pictures to Star* It’s the symbol of Yevon. We can make the same designs that are in these pictures. But without the Symbol. We can put our Business Logo on it.

Star: When do you want to get with doing up the designs?

Pearl: Start at the first of the new year. Start the new year off with a new design line.

Star: We’re gonna have to go to the fashion supply store and gather some materials for the designs.

Pearl: It’s a pretty quiet week this week. we can get started tonight and get the supplies. We’ll have to pull an all nighter though.

Star: Sounds good. Bring plenty of coffee though. We’re gonna need it.

Pearl: Right…

At Paige’s house…

Paige’s room…

Paige: *In bed with Reese* That was great.

Reese: Not as great as you are, Paige. I missed you. You’ll be unable to believe how many sleepless nights i has ever since we… you know… Divorced. 1,100 which is over the mark for 3-4 years. I couldn’t sleep so well as all i could do while try to sleep is think of you.

Paige: I wish that i could share that same feeling. But my nights were peaceful. Although… the things that would fulfill me as it would be something that couples do… I could see myself doing for every time i came to do it… I’d see your face. I would be reminded of how we used to have it before that divorce. The backyard would have a Patio and a nice view of the neighborhood residing behind our house. but i could never see myself enjoying it as all it would do is remind me of you. I tried forcing myself to let you go. But… My heart… just wouldn’t allow it. It didn’t want to let go. The more i thought about it… the more upset it’d make me. All i could think about was you. I couldn’t get over you. My heart still wanted you.

Reese: Which means you also wanted me but until you were ready… just couldn’t say it.

Paige: yeah. I guess that i was just so into thinking that i was happy without you that i didn’t realize the fact that i was deep down… unhappy. I was missing you too much.

Reese: I never stopped loving you. Even if we were apart. I still felt love towards you.

Paige: *Smiles*

However at Dinah’s and Shingo’s house…

Serena: *Looking at Janie, Alex and Charlene* So… You three are with the whole get up revolving this Apokolips and something known as Lord Darkseid. Aren’t you?

Janie: Yeah. Why?

Serena: I don’t know how that makes our minds calmed. You three have been following up on the Unholy Trinity.

Alex: We have followed up on it. Those dark people had to be stopped.

Serena: Which is fine and good. But going after dark beings like those guys and while having the belief that they were very much unpredictable… it is like a death trap. You 3 may have been gutsy enough to handle it. But just take it from us. We dealt with dark beings. Granted that yeah… they were all from a Video game reality and technically were not real even though we were there and were as real to us as we were to them. We dealt with dark beings ourselves. Maester Seymour. He was a Guado. A Maester. But also a Murderer. He killed his own father. then after being beat. came back 3 times for another round. Lady Yunalesca. She was also dark. We had to handle 3 rounds of her. All at once. Round one. then when that was over, Round two. then last was Round 3.

Raven: You 3 actually know about the 3 members of this unholy trinity, don’t you? You know who they are.

Alex: Yes. Us 3 and a friend of ours. Zoey Creek. She’s been exposing info about their dark dealings. Schemes.

Charlene: Are you aware that Darkseid has been among us all this time and no one’s even been aware of it till now. or recent?

Raven: I don’t think that we’d know of that as we were in Spira for a while. Since Sept. But… there is something that we did get wind of. We got told of the details by someone there. Zoey. Luna’s young girl. Had a friend or a companion who is more like a close ally to her. Someone named June. June. From the… Moon. She got the info about Darkseid from the Queen of the moon herself. It filled us in on a bit of the detail. What we should know about Darkseid. She told us of his return and what powers or abilities he possessed.

Janie: That’s something else too… but there is also the fact that Lord darkseid’s been here for over 14 years. It has been sadly 16 years that he’s been around and of all this time… Darkseid choose now to show up. Choose to just recently over the last couple weeks start gaining more power. Alot of followers.

Alex: It gets more deeper. Kinda personal too…

Sapphire: How’s that? How much deeper can it get from there?

Janie: One guess. Who’s the one person that our mom knows who’s got these holy powers. or used to until mysteriously getting stripped of the powers and happens to have a petty grudge against mom?

Raven: Betty. That’s the only one i can think of that has a stink against mom.

Janie: That’s not the worst of it. She’s also gonna seek to destroy our mom. Destroy mom, Aunt Pearl and Aunt Paige too. She’s gonna kill them. “THEY MURDERED MY FATHER. TOOK EVERYTHING FROM ME! I AM NOT GONNA REST TILL THEY LOSE EVERYTHING THEY HAVE!” she said. She was bringing up something that happened 18 years ago. But… Raven. there is someone here that you might need to see. Dad, told us that you were named after a dark powered half-bred girl. Half-Demon and half human.

Suddenly a black shadowy Raven appeared and only then seconds later turned into a solid physical form…

Raven: *Looking at the girls* Well… you girls are awfully chipper this morning.

Raven: Uh, okay. I think that i am looking at someone who has a Jewel on the forehead and now knowing that i am named… after her… I am baffled.

Serena: Don’t feel bad. It’s actually pretty wicked.

Raven: Say’s you. *Sighs* Oh… who am i kidding? It is a complete shock. But i guess that some of my knowhow is rather inspired by the one i was named after.

Sapphire: We need to get a hold of mom and let her know about Betty’s ominous threat. If Betty’s intending to do something… our mom and Aunts need to know about it…

Although…

At a secret location…

Saved by Luthorcorp a decade ago…

???: It’s good to have you back.

Tess: I should have g-guessed it would be you.

It was Lionel Luthor… It should have been figured that his return wasn’t the least bit subtle.

Lionel: No, no. No, no, no. Don’t beat yourself up, Tess. I’ve been watching you very closely.

Tess: Oh.

Lionel: I’m impressed. I must admit… I underestimated you.

It’s a little late, huh?

Tess: It’s not really time for a father-daughter chat. There’s literally a planet hurtling toward earth.

Lionel: Do I catch the tiniest hint of a doubt? Are you worried that your savior in red might not prevail? Or should i say… the Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z! The Rhapsody Aquatic Force Z! or The Romancers Z!

Tess: *Frantically getting to her feet* They need me. I have to get to them… They need to be warned about the coming Apokolips.

Lionel: Wrong. They need no one. They are quite able to get through it on their own. Just like their mothers. Even that one girl who can transform into this one Sailor. She can do it. I’ve seen what the girls of Love, Grace and Fury are capable of.

Tess: How do you know about them?

Lionel: I’ve located a copy of all the tapes. of their heroic deeds. It’s ironic… I’m the only one who seems to miraculously believe in them, isn’t it?

Tess: Don’t question where my allegiance lies.

Lionel: It’s time you embrace your lineage, Tess … time to become the Luthor you were destined to be.

Tess: Why did you bring me here? What is the meaning of your bringing me here to this whack shack house of horrors?

Lionel: My son, Lex … your brother, a genius … carried on with the family business. As you know, Lex cloned himself. There were many clones. None of them were perfect, but some of the pieces were.

Tess: No.

Lionel: Yes. Lex took the best pieces and grafted them into a masterwork.

Tess: I don’t believe you. You’re making it up.

Lionel: Of course you don’t. Lex is a visionary. You’re not. I don’t think you should worry if i am making it up or not. It’s the truth.

Tess: Where is he, then? I can already call your bluff. You are full of it. If Dinah’s kids were here… they’d expose you.

Lionel: He’ll reveal himself when he’s ready. I don’t even think that the girls you believe will come to your aid will be able to prevent the act that was pre-ordained and meant to be.

Tess: It’s not possible.

Lionel: Well, there is one thing Lex wasn’t able to duplicate successfully. Lex is missing a heart. And who better to save him than the sister who loves him? Luthors are survivors. You are one of us, my dear.

Tess knew what was about to come. She was with dread in that moment. Was there anyone close by to save her… To come to her rescue? Who would be coming to her rescue?

Lionel: It’s all right. When the day is done, I will see the Luthor name resurrected… More powerful than ever. Tess. There is no way that the girls you’re depending on will be liable to come to your rescue in time. They can’t stop what was meant to be. You’re a Luthor, Tess. A Luthor. It’s time for you to step up and accept it for what it is.

Help! Tess in trouble… She’s in danger… IS THERE ANYONE THAT CAN ANSWER THE CALL?!

The age old Call to summon our heroes… “RHAPSODY GIRLS! WE NEED YOU!!!”

Back in the Metropolis Residential district…

At Pearl and Jack’s house…

Spencer: *With his Future wife Rikku* Rikku, How do you like Metropolis so far?

Rikku: I don’t know. I didn’t really see too much of the City. We arrived in the city and made way right for the… Watchtower. That’s about it. But from the sky view… it looked like a dream. Wonderful even.

Spencer: I’ll be sure to give you the tour. Show you the best spots in the city. I however am gonna have to let you be aware that there is schooling. We’re gonna need to attend school.

Rikku: Anywhere with you will be okay by me. But there is one thing that i don’t understand.

Spencer: What’s that?

Rikku: You said that you and the others had to handle some issues that were going on and happened to form while we were all in Spira. Or while you and your sisters and cousins were.

Spencer: You’re wondering as to why we’re not handling any of it now?

Rikku: Uh, yeah.

Spencer: Rikku, we can’t just go out looking for trouble. We have to wait for something to stir before going in.

Amy: *Running out from the other room* Spencer, We got a problem. A real problem.

Spencer: *Looking to the side and seeing his sister* Amy, What the buzz?! What happened?

Amy: I… You’re gonna have to come take a look or come to the other room. We are getting a Video Feed from watchtower. Genevieve… She’s coming over to us… and has just now patched in The Romancers Z! and Thunderic Force Z! as well. Something happened.

Rikku: Ur so kut! Mad’c ku caa. (Oh my god! Let’s go see.)

In the Living room…

Genevieve: *On Screen* This is the first time i made contact to you young fighters. This won’t be the last. As you might have caught on from the other night when you all returned from Spira. I am working with Tess. Part of the Watchtower team. elemental research and development. scientific recognition. Vast resources in the Political aspect in weapons coordination. Which means that i am also rallying on as your personal Professor. Now… Normally Tess would be the one that would contact you. Telling you the details of what’s at hand. However… She’s gone missing…

Susie: Missing? What do you mean missing?

Raven: *On Screen* I think that the lady… Genevieve is trying to get to that.

Serena: It’s quite obvious that what she is trying to say is that Tess has been abducted and taken captive. Genevieve started telling us before you guys popped on. that Tess’s car was reported being cornered a couple blocks from the Metropolis Clock tower. She was somehow there to see someone. An Oliver Queen. But on her way back to the Watchtower… a couple of Mysterious black SUV’s.

Annie: *On Screen* We gotta do something. Tess is unfortunately a Luthor. We don’t tolerate Luthors at all. But Tess has done nothing but be there for our family as we were told that Chloe and Oliver had been too. Tess made some mess-ups through out the years… but she’s been making up for it. She’s helped this family. More than that Man of Steel.

Blossom: *Joining in* That kinda makes me mad. There is a man who’s said to be the Last Son of a destroyed planet. Sent here to protect this planet. But yet when something happens… He sits on his butt till trouble is literally smacking front and center at him.

Serena: That’s enough, Blossom. Dissing the guy, Clark… it’s not gonna help us find Tess.

Rikku: I can help. I have Al-Bhed Flash Bombs to blow up the doors of the place where Tess could be held.

Penny: Where is she though?

Sapphire: Genevieve, Any idea as to where Tess is at?

Genevieve: *Getting onto the systems and working on getting a fix on where Tess is* No. But i’m gonna try to get a fix on a lock on Tess’s Car’s GPS. It’ll help point us to where she was exactly when she was abducted and taken captive.

Only minutes later…

Genevieve: *Getting a fix on the Location* I got a fix on the location. It’s at a secret location that was never used before. It’s owned privately by… *Pulling up the records* Luthorcorp. But the only thing about it is that the company has been said to be shutting down a bunch of its side properties for the last 10 years. So… where ever Tess is being kept at… it’s most likely than not an unmarked site of unknown property that Luthorcorp’s managed to own.

Rikku: *Walking out to find her father* Vydran!

Cid: *Overhearing Rikku calling for him* Eh? Rikku?! *Stepping out from the Dining room* What’s the matter? Something wrong?

Rikku: Not really. Other than an innocent person’s been abducted and taken captive by someone and is being held in a secret location somewhere. Do you know where my Wet Suit is?

Cid: The only one you had was left at by the side of the north wharf of the MoonFlow. Back in Spira.

Rikku: I didn’t have a spare?

Cid: No. *Thinking a minute* Wait. Actually. Yeah… you have the Wet-suit. We Al-bhed always come prepared. It’s back on the ship. Had it tucked away for a certain occasion. I’ll have to go get it. Why?

Rikku: Because i want to get back to wearing that for a while.

Cid: Okay. I’ll be back.

A Moment later…

Cid: *With the Wet-suit* I’m back. I sure do wish that i knew what would bring you to want to wear your Wet-Suit again.

Rikku: Would everyone?

But while they were talking…

As for Tess…

At the secret unmarked location owned by Luthorcorp…

Tess: *While being forcefully tied down on the table* No! No! No! No!

Lionel: Tess. Tess, Tess. You must see that you’re the cause of your own undoing. He’s your brother. Don’t you understand?

Tess: Lex is worth killing your own daughter? Plus i don’t think of myself being anything like you. I might be a Luthor by blood as you claim me as. But i doubt that you’re anything like a father. You abandoned me. Left me at that orphanage. You didn’t even want me around. I accepted that. I made my own path. I might be a Luthor by blood. But I am nothing like Lex or like you. However you’re willing to just kill your own daughter… the one you abandoned. Just to have Lex back?

Lionel: Lex is worth everything to me. Finally… …You will serve an important purpose in my life.

Tess: Meaning that before that… i wasn’t worth anything to you. You only wanted me around just to get Lex back alive. *Hurt*

As the orderlies and surgeons were moving closer and grabbing the tools to begin the procedure…

???: *Pounding into the side door* …

Lionel: What’s that noise? What’s going on?

Tess: *Using the distraction to break loose and fight back*

???: *Roaring; Pounding at the door busting it open*

Lionel: *Looking back and then at the door* …

Tess: *Grabbing for a gun and Shooting Lionel in the chest* Looks like my purpose in your life has changed.

The mysterious ally that busted into the room was… Kimahri?!!!

Kimahri: *Walking over to Tess* You Friend to Rhapsody fighters?

Tess: *Looking at Kimahri* Uh yeah. But… don’t take it the wrong way… It’s not really a good time to talk. We should get ourselves out of here. Lionel was gonna have my heart cut out and given to Lex. I am a Luthor by blood… but everything i believe in and everything that i’ve done… is not of the Luthor stature. *Disturbed by the room* Let’s get out of here.

Kimahri: Kimahri smell Scent of fighters. Kimahri get you over to fighters.

Seconds later…

Lionel: *Pushing the button next to the side panel that opened to reveal a secret compartment; Crawling over to where the still body laid* Lex. Lex.

But as he crawled…

Black smoke formed and started billowing into the room at a fast pace before rising up and revealing within it… a Form. A Form of a being. A Dark being with a cracked face and cracks all over the body. It towered high and with the cracks on it’s face. there was glows of red. Red glowing eyes included…

Darkseid: You refused me once, but this may be the moment when you’ll reconsider my offer.

Lionel: I never intended to live forever. There’s only one life I care about. Let my son live.

Darkseid: In Exchange for your Soul…

Suddenly…

Rikku: *Looking into the room* Aqlica sa! [Lord Darkseid], Bid tufh dryd syh. Ihmacc oui fyhd dnuipma. (Excuse me! [Lord Darkseid], Put down that man. Unless you want trouble.)

Darkseid: *Looking at the girl standing within the room* What a pathetic Puny mortal. Challenging the likes of me. You have no chance against me.

Rikku: I might not… But these fighters might.

Darkseid: *Not phased* This means nothing to me.

Thunder Star: Wanna bet, Lord Darkseid of the S.S Mentally unhinged? You’re nothing but a tyrant. You want this planet? Bad news for you then. You’re about to get your ass kicked.

Thunderic Wonder: Care to know why? Or do you just want to cut to the chase and endure us kicking you into the boondocks?

Darkseid: Silence! You bringers of light don’t have a chance against me.

Angelic Bubble: *Standing up to Darkseid* Oh ho ho ho! You are gonna throw that bit at us, are you? I don’t think it’ll work.

But as they were standing up and challenging Darkseid… Dark smoke increased and out from it came dark claws that grabbed into Lionel and pulled out his heart before then penetrating into Lionel and possessing him…

Miss Thunder: *disturbed* Oh now that is just wrong. I think that i’m gonna be sick.

Bubble Gem: Holy crap! He just ripped out a man’s heart from the body giving it to that still body over there.

Bubbling Star: Do we even want to know who that still body is?

Sailor Zoey: *From the side* I don’t think we should worry about that as much. We should worry more on how to beat and overpower Darkseid.

Blossom: How are we to do that?

Darkseid: What’s the matter? the assured heroes feeling doubt towards being capable of defeating me?

Sailor Zoey: *Stepping in and Firing a shot at Darkseid* Moon Star Cosmic FLASH!

Blossom: *Drawing in some Electrical energy and forming a Ball of electricity* Darkseid… You look too dark. You might need some light in you. So… How about some Electricity to change the color of your eyes from Red to defeat? *Firing the ball of Electricity at Darkseid*

Lionel/Darkseid: *Facing the fighters* The Thunderic Force Z! Aquatic Force Z! Romancers Z! Sailor Luna’s Daughter. Electrogal… I’ve spent Eons in darkness. Coming on this Earth and till now was in hiding. Till i had massed enough power to reveal myself.

Sailor Zoey: What are you?

Lionel/Darkseid: I am the darkness. the soon to be new master of your Putrid Mortal Race. There must be a part of you fighters that felt sickened and in agony by just how easily your own family fell to my will. Your own Aunt… Betty fell to me. Disgusted by her own family. With such hatred within her heart over her sisters and mother. Within her… towards you.

Miss Bliss: Oh please! Betty just hates us because we won’t agree with her that our mothers have done something terrible 18 years ago. It was not covered up. She just can’t take it. There was no cover-up. Whatever our parents had done… it was proven to be nothing more than just an accident.

Blossom: You really think that their mothers, Paige, Pearl and Dinah haven’t punished themselves enough for what might or might not have happened? You must not know them at all. It might always be just so so easy to feel nothing more than hate. But it is also more possible to Love. To care and be the prayer and hope for others. the ensure that no matter who they were… what they were going though or how dark their lives were… that they weren’t alone.

Lionel/Darkseid: Is it? Eons have passed since I came face-to-face with forces that could possibly tip the balance to the light. You fighters are that light. you will obliterate my darkness from the rest of the world if you are not stopped! *Using telekinesis on Zoey and Blossom; Pulling them over to him and holding them up high* You Insignificant fighters will surrender to me. You will lose your soul. I will annihilate you! *Shoving Blossom and Zoey hard across the room sending them smacking into the wall on the other side by ways of telekinesis*

Thunder Star: *Gasps* Zoey!

Rikku: Ymnekrd oui pek ujanknufh tyng rayndat sayhea. Oui’na kuhhy kad ed. (Alright you big overgrown dark hearted meanie. You’re gonna get it.) *Looking at everyone* Guys… Stand back. Run!

Rikku then tosses over an Al-Bhed Flashbomb towards Darkseid blinding him Momentarily… But the fighters managed to cover their eyes just in time before the bomb detonated. Although Darkseid wasn’t showing much vulnerability to the flash. He looked to see Rikku standing close and with telekinesis grabbed hold of her and used a shot of his Omega Beam. The attack hit Rikku head on and stung her. But that was what got Spencer pissed.

Frosty Ice Bubble: *Growling in fury towards Darkseid* You son of a bitch! That was my future wife! You hurt her… NOW I’M MAD! *Flaring up with Ice* The Holy power of the Arctic Snow fulfills me with it’s strength. It calls to me. It becomes me and endows me with it’s power. The Crosses of Ice. The Essence of the Bubbly Angel of Light and Serenity and the Arctic Ice of Frost… Call to me… Combine ones power with thine own. *Launching his Overdrive with his Holy Crosses of frost* FROSTY CROSSES OF ARCTIC JUSTICE!!! *Sending the attack with force right at Darkseid*

Miss Thunder: *Looking back and commanding her sisters* Thunderic Force Z! Attack!

Thunderic Wonder: Right!

Thunder Star: Darkseid’s just won himself a nice huge dose of Canned ass-kickin’!

Miss Thunder: *With her weapon- The Thunder Trident; Firing a tri-shot of Thunder at Darkseid* Tri-Star Thunder BEAMS!

Thunderic Wonder: *With her new weapon- The Thunderstorm Fan; Firing a Gust of Thunder at Darkseid* Raging Winds of Thunder!

Thunder Star: *With the new forged weapon- The Thunder Chains; Whipping the Chains at Darkseid; Shocking him* Thundering VICEGRIP!

Miss Thunder: *Looking towards Rikku* Spencer… Rikku looks really out of it. Get her out of here. Hurry. There is nothing she can do in the state she’s in. Darkseid has nearly broken her down. We are all in danger of dying. Darkseid’s gonna only get more and more out of control and lose his temper. Someone’s liable to be killed. We don’t want anyone to die. Get Rikku out of here. Unless you want to face losing her.

Frosty Ice Bubble: Right. I don’t want to lose her and i won’t. *Picking Rikku up and carrying her to the outside of the lab* Come on Rikku. Let’s get you out of here.

Rikku: *Dizzy and feeling woozy* Oh… What happened? Did i just get clobbered by the stone like creep?

Frosty Ice Bubble: Yeah. It’s gonna be okay though. I’m gonna make him pay for what he done to you.

Rikku: Please no. I don’t want to lose you.

Frosty Ice Bubble:*Smiles* Don’t worry. You won’t. I am never gonna leave you.

Rikku: *Smiles*

Spencer had Rikku sit outside of the lab and rest. He started to go back inside but Rikku grabbed onto his hand real quick…

Rikku: *Pulling out a couple of grenades, Frag grenades and Bomb fragments* … You’ll probably need these.

Frosty Ice Bubble: Rikku, Darkseid’s inside Lionel. He killed Lionel already. But even if Lionel is Darkseid now… It’s still Lionel. using these could kill Lionel even though he’s already dead. *Pauses* Wait a minute. Darkseid can possess anyone he wants… but he’s still gonna be only a rocky cracked stone faced being with evil damning red eyes. Oh… Okay. It’s on now. Don’t worry. *Taking hold of the grenades* Don’t worry, Rikku. Your future hubby is gonna blow that stone faced nutcase all the way to mars. If it’s possible.

Back inside…

Fighting against Darkseid…

Miss Thunder: *Glowing with Thunder energy* … Thunder and Lightning i call upon you to grant me the power of Thunders Rage. Come forth and guide my Soul. *Rising her Thunder Trident and swirling the tip into the air and creating a Thunder Storm; Building up energy at full power* The Evil angers the Thunder.

Miss Bliss: Daria, Clint, Theodore… We need to fight back at Darkseid. If Darkseid isn’t beat… he will plunge this world into darkness and hell.

Sir Love: How? How do we do that?

Dancing Heartthrob: He’s too powerful. Love won’t land a dent towards him.

Miss Bliss: Well… We’ve got to at least try. Come on! This is to save our world. The fate of the world depends on this. Apokolips is nearing… but without Darkseid… there is no power for Planet Apokolips. We need to do this! NOW!

Miss Passion: You got a point.

However… as they were fighting against Darkseid…

“The fires of Evil fear my name… The light of the innocent welcome me… Justice is my follower and is what drives the dragon such as i. The seas and waters only hear and summon my name to aid the innocent lost to the devastation that Evil lets loose… From the Oceans call and from the Fires of justice that burns within. your demand for the aid of justice has been granted… Fear not for i shall be your protector… I Am Aquatic Burn!”

Mary: *Rising into the Air and gathering Strength from the waters; forming a massive cloud; filling it with the power of the Oceans; sending it to hover above the enemy; Launching the Attack at (Darkseid)* Aquatic Storm of Redemption!

Blossom: *Turning to the side* Who on earth did that?

Mary: *Walking out from the shadows* Me.

Blossom: Mary?! Wh-wh-wh-what’re you doing here?

Mary: You’re asking me that now?! Why? Don’t you know the reasons to why i’m here?

Blossom: Not off hand. But i do suspect there is an explanation somewhere as to why you’re here. Where it’s dangerous.

Mary: You’re looking at the next or should i say… New Aquatic Burn.

Blossom: Sis, *Pauses and in disbelief* Would you like to say that to me… or to us… One more time? Did you just say… that… you… You’re now the new Aquatic Burn?

Mary: Yes. And there is a good theory behind that. a very good theory behind that. Remember how Aunt Trixie was with us in Spira from the time we faced Maester Seymour the 3rd time till we all came back home. She was with the powers of water and fire. She could turn into a Dragon. The only thing is that before i first came to Spira… to Join in on what you and the others were doing… she said that i could likely become the next Aquatic Burn. I was all for it… but i also felt that it might have been too good to be true. It was anything but just some tall tale. Which i half believed. I mean… how many people do you know would be endowed with powers and just happen to entrust and award you with the powers that they had before you?

Blossom: Okay. So you are now the new Aquatic Burn. Sis, It’s a good lively surprise. But i do hope that you understand that it’s not gonna be getting easier from here on out. It’s gonna be hard. I don’t have much Experience with the hero kick. Although i know enough to know that this is not gonna be just some cakewalk.

Mary: And? I can do it. I of course will need to be careful. That’s for certain. But it isn’t anything that i can’t do. Believing in oneself goes a long way.

Blossom: *Chuckles* You really are my twin… That’s similar to what i’d say at times.

Sailor June: *Popping in* Sorry i’m late. had to speak on a private conversation with the Queen. There’s been some new developments that we didn’t catch.

Sailor Zoey: Tell us later, June. We’ve got a bad dark corrupting menace with the evil red eyes to handle.

Sailor June: Right.

Miss Bliss: Okay… Come on, Enough talk. Let’s send this pasty freak with the stone like body back to the rocky shores of Pain and torment. We’re to be of Love… But i think that we might have done enough Kidding around now.

Sir Love: Sis, Don’t get angry. It’s what Darkseid is expecting. for us to lose focus. He’s wanting us to get emotional so we won’t be able to fight him and he’ll be able to take us over. We can’t allow that to happen.

Dancing Heartthrob: No we sure can’t. And Newsflash: WE’RE NOT GONNA, EITHER!

The Battle went on till it suddenly caught the attention of the one person that should have been all on top of the matter…

Darkseid: So… The lost son of Jor-El finally shows. Shows his presence after seeing that i had to face young kids who have no chance against me.

Clark: My father sent me here to protect this planet. And I will fight you till my last breath.

Blossom: You fight him after we all were doing your details… Typical. Well… Now that you’re here… Get with it, Clark.

Thunder Star: Yeah. Get your butt in gear. Now!

Frosty Ice Bubble: *Tossing another Grenade at Darkseid* This should bring you down to size.

It was then that they all fled from the room and left it for the man of steel to do. It took him a while to break Darkseid down. It turned into a brutal battle however in the end… It was Darkseid that went down. Clark… who for a decade was not seen performing any heroics. Seen anywhere… managed to Dive into Darkseid’s Vessel and vanquish Darkseid. Next was to defeat the Unholy Trinity…

Club Desaad…

Desaad: *Looking up into the sky* It’s about to be all over. Lord Darkseid’s rapture is about to be upon us all.

Granny: Yes. I believe that the dark lord is endearingly pleased.

Betty: but knowing my family… they’ll try to stop it. Too bad that they failed.

Desaad: After all the mettling that those 3 girls attempted to do… It was all for nothing. They were unsuccessful in trying to prevent what’s about to happen.

Granny: The Bringer of light won’t be able to stop it. If our servant has done what he was instructed to do… there will be no one to stop us.

“Wanna bet?”

Desaad: *Stopping to turn and look to see where the voice was coming from* Who said that? Who’s there?

Betty: If it’s one of you pathetic fighters… give it up. It’s over. The Dark lord’s about to take command of this planet.

Kelly/Angelic Kelly: *Glowing with Holy light; Walking into the room* You have no right to talk, Betty Rhapsody. You betrayed your own family. Threatened to kill your own sisters. You are a disgrace to the family.

Betty: What the F**k are you?

Kelly: I am what you used to be. I am the new Angelic fighter. You might be expecting for the man of steel to be one to try and stop what’s coming. But… He’s not your problem. I am.

Desaad: And what can you do to stop us? You’re just a kid!

Kelly: *Glowing with White light and charging up; Chanting a spell
making her Multiply into a thousand Angels; “God imbued power
of the heavens, break forth and multiply into many angels of
light and Sacred might”; Surrounding the target with Crosses
and angels; trapping the target and pinning the target onto
the cross; Launching the attack at (The Unholy Trinity)* Sacred Judgement!

It was a Direct hit and with one quick flash… It took out the Unholy Trinity. They were no more…

Kelly: No one messes with the power of god and gets away with it. He’s of love. Love always will win over hatred…

At Metropolis fashion Emporium/Madame Pearl’s and Mystic Stars…

Pearl: Something really screwy is going on in this city. It didn’t dawn on me till just now.

Star: What’s that?

Pearl: Remember the other day when my family and i had first returned back from Spira?

Star: Like it was just a moment ago still. Why?

Pearl: Well… there was talks about something coming. The Meteor shower. Which everyone here already knew and us. My family and I. But there was also something else.

Star: As in?

Pearl: *Sighs* You are not gonna like this and you will be freaking out. Religious to the core individuals usually do. However… during the last parts of our time in Spira… Tess was somehow able to get a hold of us. We don’t know how that was possible or how likely that might have been. But She reached us one of the times of where communication was mystically possible between worlds… Telling us about a Dark being known as Lord Darkseid. About how he was coming to earth. But here is where it gets even more twisted… She even showed us a Video feed of something dark coming out from a place that was on top of a tall building. The Crows nest as it were. That was where my family and i were 18-19 years ago during the time of sending a one Major Zod to another plane of existence. To the Phantom Zone as it were. Thereby accidentally allowing for something dark to come through. We thought that Trigon the terrible was the only one that came through. and he was behind the V.R.A. He wasn’t. Someone else was… but at that time… we all thought that it was Trigon. Scath. We didn’t even know about there being a Lord Darkseid.

Star: Pearl, I don’t think that anyone knew. There was no proof of there ever being a secondary threat as well as That Desolate Demon.

Pearl: I agree. and you’re right Star. However… I think that the joke wore out years ago as we all have seen our fair share… no. Actually more than our fair share. You remember that you at first never knew about my secret till i showed you. I am sure you do, Star. Bank on that. But when i told you… On the day when i told you… it was only a few weeks before the 4th threat would begin. But at the very least… it would have showed us more than what it had. It didn’t. It was all behind a dark powered girl. She was the one that had the prophecy and the dark secret that no one ever knew. Only my sister… Dinah. She caught on to a little bit of it. As did Luna. And during the Demon fiasco… she was with a little teen Angst. Yes. But on the day before all that were to happen… before the 4th threat for my family and I. But the first one that you had any inside news revolving it. My sisters and I. My family were already 3 threats in. 3 Dilemma’s and banking hard for a 4th. Just we never knew that the Ally we got out of it was the one with the dark secret. She was the center and yet she also was the one who in the end knocked the Demon right into oblivion.

Star: Of course that now… we have this Darkseid. He is to be the one that has been around all this time and till now… not a soul has known of it… or even picked up his presence.

Pearl: Yeah. I know. *Looking over towards the window* And it might already be here. Apokolips. It’s coming.

Kelly: *Appearing before them suddenly* It’s okay. Don’t fear. It’s gonna be alright.

Pearl: *Turning to see a blonde haired girl* Wh-wh-who are you?

Kelly: I’m a friend. I’m actually one of the Bikini Girls. A gang of girls who are clearly followers… Supporters, Fans and admirers of your family. Following it for a long time. We have followed it for a good decade. Ever since the founder of the Bikini Girls… Margaret Trent… founded the gang. Even before… She relayed it to all the members of the gang. As each new member sprung into the gang… whether it be 6 years old… or 7. No matter. It came and happened. They learned of all things Rhapsody clan. Everything. The bad and the good.

Star: But how did you get here?

Pearl: We didn’t even see you walk in. and we would know if someone walked in due to the bell that we got on top of the door. It goes chiming whenever someone goes out the door and comes in the door.

Star: Plus… Girl… Where’d you get those types of powers?

Kelly: I can’t say. It’s kinda like a solemn secret i made to someone.

Star: Who?

Kelly: The only hint i’ll be liable to give you… is Look up to the heavens.

Pearl: Wait a minute… You mean that you’re Angelic Raven… How… How can that be? You’re a… *Confused* How old are you?

Kelly:10.

Pearl: Angelic Raven is my estranged sister Betty.

Star: *Gasps* Betty?! She’s Angelic Raven? H-h-h-h-h-how!

Pearl: Long story. Very long story. I’ll tell you someday over coffee, Star. But, Kelly? How is it that you got the powers? You are only 10.

Kelly: They were entrusted to me and i might have already said that i can’t really say by who. And it’s Angelic Kelly. Betty is no longer a Rhapsody as far as you should be concerned. She was threatening to kill you, Paige and Dinah. Over something that went on 18-19 years in the past.

Pearl: Where did you hear this… Kelly. Sweetie?

Kelly: I kinda heard it from Janie, Alex and Charlene… Dinah’s new 3 girls. a Day after it happened. A day after the incident.

Pearl: I see… *Looking to see the outside get darker and more threatening* This is starting to get like the times of the Desolate one like Trigon. This is almost similar to that very dilemma.

They all head out to look around and see where the darkness was coming from. They at first didn’t see anything till they looked up and saw red. A Big red ball of fire. A Darkened ball of fire. Flames and guaranteed hell. It was then that Pearl panicked. Star looked and got antsy which really was not like her at all. She turned and went inside.

Pearl: What the heck is that?

Kelly: That would be considered as none other than Planet Apokolips.

Pearl: What about the Unholy Trinity?

Kelly: Oh… You mean Desaad, Granny Goodness and your as far as you should be concerned… Ex-Sister and Rhapsody clansmen member Betty? Don’t worry. I don’t think that they’ll be striking any more darkness ever again.

Pearl: Why’s that?

Kelly: Oh… Well… Let’s just say that they met a challenge that couldn’t be beat by them. Something rather more stronger and more powerful than they were. Meaning… God. *Winks*

Pearl: Oh… Okay. *Winks* I think that i get your drift on that one.

It was then that something happened. No one really knew that the public were all stained with the Omega symbol. No one knew of it. It was a repeat of the incident revolving Trigon the Terrible and the end of days. However… it was not gonna be over yet. The planet was still veering right on further and closer to the city. to Earth. It was coming closer and closer. The fighters tried all they could to stop what was to come… but sadly failed.

Where was there gonna be hope? The Rhapsody Fighters have failed… OH NO!!!! NO!!! But what was this… What was this? Who was gonna step up to save us… WHO?!!!

Look up in the sky… It’s… a Bird. It’s a Jet… No! NO! It’s The Man of Steel. SUPERMAN!!!!! Clark Kent?!

Blossom: The lazy man who’d always wait for the trouble to come to him… is Superman?! *With her jaw dropped open*

He rose up and with all the power within him to take the lead… he lifted up and soared right on towards the hurling descending planet. Pushing it up and shoving it with force into the sky and through the atmosphere… It did something that made a bonus to the attempts of saving the world. It saved the people. Removed the perpetual stain on their souls. Pulling away the hold that it had on the innocent people. It was the end of Betty. The end of Darkseid. the end of the Unholy Trinity… The End of all the Darkness that was upon the world. However… in some parts the mystical world… it was believed that more would come. Alot more…

Clark moments later was hovering in space as he had just sent Planet Apokolips zipping back into the very darkened and blackest reaches of space. Sending it away never to show itself to the mortal world… to Earth… Ever again.

That night…

At Dinah’s and Shingo’s house…

Dinah: *Cleaning up the kitchen a little bit* What a day this was.

Sapphire: You don’t know the half of it, Mom. We had to deal with Darkseid a little bit. He knocked Rikku around a good one. Plus… what’s more out there… is that Darkseid possessed Lionel Luthor. Using him as a Vessel. But that was after ripping out Lionel’s heart from the body.

Raven: Yeah. Plus… the fact that our young cousin Mary… She’s now the hero you might know. Aquatic Burn. She’s the new Aquatic.

Dinah: You don’t say… Well now, That’s a surprise and then some. Where did you hear this?

Raven: Who else… From Mary herself.

Dinah: I guess that we’ll be seeing her on the battle field with you girls from here on.

Serena: Do you think that Tess is alright? We kinda heard from Watchtower saying that she was Abducted by Lionel’s men. *Drying some of the dishes*

Dinah: You might want to ask her yourself. She came back unharmed luckily.

Raven: She did? When was this?

Sapphire: We got the call saying that she was there. We followed the trail over to where Tess was being held captive and yet… somehow; She was already gone. As were whatever men or guards that helped Lionel get to her. *Putting some of the dishes away*

Dinah: Apparently someone rescued her. Someone… or something. No one knows who it was though. Although… some people i heard said that they believed to have seen a strange creature. Blue. with a tail. and a broken horn on the forehead.

Raven: A Broken Horn? *Pauses* Is there even such a creature… or being that has that description?

Janie: *On the phone with Zoey C.* Did you really see the strange blue creature?

Zoey: *On the phone* Yeah. That thing… or man. He was really like… I don’t know… A Hybrid. Lion/Rhino.

Janie: Any idea as to where he is now?

Zoey: No. No one’s seen him. But there is also another new addition to the city. Someone who calls himself O’aka XXIII. Merchant Extraordinaire.

Janie: I never heard of him. Is he just visiting?

Zoey: I don’t know.

In the Kitchen…

Serena: Where’s Tess now?

Dinah: She’s in the guest room. the only one we have left. And on the part where she has Luthor Blood… I don’t give a rat’s patoot! She’s as far as i am concerned… A member of the clan. Tomorrow, we’re all gonna swear her in as permanent Rhapsody Clan member.

The front door then opens…

Shingo: *Walking in the front door* Dinah… Honey, I’m home. Girls… Dad’s home and you’ll never believe what the “Cat” dragged in. *Looking behind him* Come on in fella. Don’t let the cold air nip you in the butt as you make your mind. Come in where it’s warm. It is cold and really frosty out tonight, you know.

A second later…

Dinah: *Walking out from the kitchen* Hey hon, You’re home. How was work?

Shingo: It was rather entertaining. Although on my way back to work from getting another client to where they needed to be… I came across a fellow that was Blue. With a tail and a broken horn and plus… he says that he’s a Ronso. I don’t doubt it… But i couldn’t just leave him stranded around the Promenade. I brought him home.

Raven: *Coming out into the Living room and seeing who was behind her father* Whoa! Oh… wow! Wow! Uh… It’s K-k-k-k-k-k-kimahri! Kimahri Ronso?!

Serena: *Bolting out to see what was going on* What’s going on?! *Turning to see who was in the room* Who… *Spotting Kimahri* Oh… holy crap! It’s Kimahri. What the heck is he doing here? How did he get here?

Raven: I think that he might have hitched a ride on the Airship as it began to make its way here.

Serena: He’s a sneaky person. I’ll give him that. This is a surprise.

Alex: *Looking to see Kimahri* That’s a Ronso. Isn’t it?

Raven: Yeah. Sure is.

Serena: Hey Kimahri. Good seeing you again. Looks like Metropolis is growing on you… isn’t it?

Kimahri: Not Really. Least not now. But Kimahri want to be where fighters are. Kimahri hear about secret base. Hear about Watchtower.

Dinah: Huh?! Kimahri, You heard about the Watchtower? How is that possible? We didn’t speak of it to you.

Raven: I think that he wants to join it.

Serena: He wants to join the team?

Dinah: Kimahri, If you want to join… It’s fine. But just know that when you are summoned… you’re gonna need to respond immediately.

Kimahri: Kimahri don’t mind. Kimahri only wants to provide help when needed.

Sapphire: One Question though… What about Yuna, Wakka and Lulu?

Kimahri: They okay. Kimahri will keep in contact with Yuna, Wakka and Lulu. They know.

However…

While walking her way to the Diner to hang out with June…

Zoey: *Sighs* What a long day of battling. Darkseid was tough. I feel bad for Spencer. He had to focus on the battle most of all… but he also had to worry about his girl Rikku. She could have been killed. Which if that happened… We’d all have an angry Al-Bhed father and Rikku’s Brother on our backs.

June: Zoey, It’s gonna be alright. Rikku is gonna be okay. She’s just a little beat. But she’s gonna make it. In fact… Cid’s got some Al-Bhed healing remedies that will heal and perk Rikku up.

Zoey: We hope so. I mean… if things don’t get better for her… we’re in trouble. I don’t care what others would say. It’s an assured fact that pissing off Al-Bhed clansmen is asking for trouble. Alot of trouble.

June: It won’t happen. Cid and Rikku’s brother are very understanding.

Zoey: Yeah. To us. But Since Spencer is like a taken on son to them. However… if anything were to happen… Something would change.

???: *Overhearing the conversation* Ah… I wouldn’t be so worried about it, Lass. Things always have their very way of being resolved, they do.

Zoey: *Pausing in her tracks* Wh-wh-wh-who said that?

June: I think that we might have someone following us and listening in to what we’re saying.

Zoey: I think so too… but that voice sounds so familiar. I know that we’ve heard that voice. That tone. But from who?

June: That voice…

Zoey: It Sounded quite like that Merchant Extraordinaire.

June: O’aka?! How? He’s in Spira and didn’t come with us back to Metropolis.

O’aka: Oh… I wouldn’t be too certain about that.

Zoey: That. That voice… it’s him. *Turning to see a peddler with a young beard and a camping backpack on his back* O’aka?!

June: I don’t believe it. He’s here. He’s come to Metropolis with us. But… How did he… get aboard the Airship without being seen?

To be continued…

Still to come… A Meteor Shower, Adoption of 4 Bikini Girls and A Sponsor stepping up to the mat to Sponsor the Bikini Girls… in Chapter 178 The Battle to end all battles. Part 3.
