Here's chapter 3 for everyone who's enjoying my fic.
Chapter 3: Vygrey
The cleansing squad and medics ran into room 188, only to find Maas huddled over what appeared to be a blood stained corpse. A larger man stepped out of the crowd of arrivers and rested his hand on his sobbing companions shoulder.
"It's gonna be alright man, at least you got the scum that did this." Maas turned his head around to face the one trying to comfort him.
"That still doesn't change what happened... one death does not cancel out another" The man's hardened face softened and a deep sadness overcame him.
"I feel for you, really. And i hate to say this but there are more important things going down all across the city" Maas' sorrow turned to anger after hearing those words. He rose to his feet and stood to face the man, even though he only reached up to his chest.
"How can you say that Vygrey? Of all people, you should know how i feel."
Vygrey was an extremely tall man, with a dark skin colour and fierce black eyes. He was in his early thirtys (thirty four to be exact) and he was a fellow cleanser with Maas, but of higher rank. He had become a fully pledged cleanser at the minimum age of eighteen. During his sixteen years exterminating demonic threats throughout Ublask, he had rised rapidly to second in command of the squad. Vygrey had chosen to become a cleanser at only ten years old, for when he was only seven, three type nine demons destroyed his family and home. Due to his size, and pure hatred towards all the monstruous entitys that ever existed, he was perfect for the job. A year after becoming a cleanser Vygrey had slowly tortured two of the type nines that had killed his parents and baby sister. Seeing as the beings could not be harmed emotionally, he had inflicted the most pain he could upon each of them. Type nines were long snake like creatures which grew to around seven metres. Their body's were navy blue and each one had fifteen spiked tentacles hidden on both sides of their bodys. The fangs that were housed in the being's mouth were huge, aproximatly eleven inches in length. Though they contained no venom a bite could remove a human ligament with ease. Vygrey had learnt this the hard way. The first type nine had suffered greatly. With pure strength he had ripped all thirty tentacles from it's body, and stabbed it in the eyes with it's own teeth. Vygrey then used his Dicer katana to slowly disect fragments of it's body from the tail upwards, until it was only a metre long. He had delivered the final blow to the soft, vulnerable brain half an hour later. It had been given time to suffer. After finding and removing the tentacles of the second type nine, he went for the teeth. But before removing even one the demon had shut it's jaw and seperated Vygrey's left arm from his shoulder. Out of oure rage, he had managed to chop the beast's head off whilst the left side of his torso viciously sprayed blood everywhere. The medical response had been sharp. Vygrey had managed not to lose to much blood, but his left arm was gone forever. Four years later,all that changed. Technology had found a way to replace his arm with a fully eficient mechanical limb. The potential of Vygrey's new arm was incredible, it's strength? Uncomparable!. Soon afterwards, Vygrey found himself trading in his Dicer for a fully personalised, and extremely heavy, spiked mace. The chain used was short so that he could maintain control over it. And a blow from a full swing could completely shatter human bones easily, not to mention bludgeon any demonic creatures. After proving himself in many, many situations. Vygrey was finally given the day off. Whilst sitting on the sofa watching the news on the holo-vision, he recieved a transmission from a long time partner and friend, Maas. Telling him that he had lost his mother to a demon. After hearing these words, Vygrey had immediatly requested medical and cleanser assistance. As fast as he could, he made his way to room 188, only to find his best friend crying on the kitchen table.
"Yeah, I know how you feel. I know exactly how you feel. But my family was killed the year OCBTE was discovered. There was no bringing them back. Your mum might still have a chance." Maas suddenly looked hopeful, but tears still fell from his eyes onto the floor.
"Even if we do save her though. Look at her head, she'd be blind and deformed. She'd never be able to show her face again." Vygrey smiled and began to console Maas.
"Look at my arm. That was fixed fifteen years ago. So I'm sure they'll be able to give Sandria her eyes and her face back, and you won't even be able to tell the difference." Vygrey felt strongly for Maas. Over the years the two had become like brothers, protecting each other from any dangers they may face, and comforting one another through the tough times.
"Do you really think so?" Asked Maas. He had never trusted OCBTE. But it looked like it was his only resort in this situation.
"Yeah, why not?" Smiled Vygrey. Then, at that moment, he remembered something. "Maas, I'm sorry. Your mum will be in good hands. But, you can't go with her to the medical sector." Maas looked at him, puzzled by his words. Suddenly, his voice found power and determination.
"And why not? I have every right to do whatever I please right now. I could stay at home or go with her if I wanted to. What's stopping me?" Vygrey shrugged and answered his question.
"Well, we've been called back on duty. I found out on my way over here." Maas looked at his mother lying across the table. Two medics were carrying a stretcher over to her. One grapped below her arms and the other lifted the legs. Once she was safely placed onto the stretcher she was carried through the hallway and into the elevator. Before descending one of the medics stuck his head out and began to speak.
"Will there be anyone travelling with us? You will both fit in the medi-monus train." Vygrey looked at Maas and sighed.
"What do you think we should do?" Maas walked to the entranceof room 188 and leaned against the doorframe on one arm. After making his decision he turned around to face his friend.
"I can't just leave her to go patrolling around, I'm the only person she's got. I must go!" Maas left the room and swiftly spun around to speak again. "Are you coming then? Or do you want to just patrol around looking for creatures?" Vygrey paced slowly towards Maas and spoke.
"I said it was up to you. If you go, I go." Maas smiled and rested his hand on Vygrey's shoulder, as he was now only a foot away.
"Thank you, I appreciate it." They both entered the elevator with the medics and began to travel down to the ground floor of platform 3.
"For a retired woman, that house was alright. She must of had quite a bit of cash hidden some place. Any idea how she got it?" Inquired Vygrey. The answer to the question involved Maas revealing some of his past, something he never spoke of. But in his emotionally fragil state he began to explain the whole story to his best friend. Though they had been companions for quite some time, Maas had never told any stories of his past before becoming a cleanser to Vygrey.
"Ayear before I was born, twenty six years ago, my mother supposedly met an inteligent man. This man was a scientist, and had been conducting important research at the time. The business he had founded not long before was also on the grow. According to my mother, he and her were extremely happy together. And as the man made more currency their lives began to improve. Their relationship became deeper. More or less a year after meeting one another, the man's business boomed, and his economical well fare soared. Four months later, my mother discovered she was pregnant. She was going to have a baby boy. Though richer than they could possiblt imagine, the man couldn't let a child get in the way of his work, and demanded that it be aborted. My mother couldn't accept this, and told him that she would not get rid of the baby. The man's judgement had become clouded by his lust for power, and so he left my mother during the night. But he wasn't all that bad. In her account he left her a large sum of money. After that, my mother told me that she never saw him in person again. Then I was born. Up to this point, I can't tell you anymore." Vygrey and the two medics had been listening atentively. But Vygrey still had more questions.
"Do you even know who this guy is?" He was a very curious person. "I mean, surely your mum told you his name, no?" Maas stared at the ground and booted the side of the elevator softly.
"I never bothered asking... what she didn't tell me i assumed was none of my business."
The lift reached the end of it's descence and the doors opened. Only seconds after stepping out into the dark, many monus trains sped past them.
"What's happening?" Asked Maas, looking confused.
"I told you" Vygrey answered. "We've been called back on duty, our guys are everywhere"
"But, but why?"
"I'll explain in the hospital, let's get there first." Was his answer. Vygrey obviously knew something that Maas didn't
