Mia saw the light come closer
as it took the shape of a woman. Mia stumbled back, the woman
stopped and Mia could see that she had lovely brown hair that
flowed down her back looking like ripples in a pond. She had no
distinct face; she looked like a lost shadow. This woman smirked
and looked very sinister.
"What do you want? Where
am I?" said Mia
"We are in your mind,
prepare for battle" Mia didn't know what to do. She knew
the body could not live without the mind. Can I actually fight
this woman, looks like I have no choice. The girl faded into the
blackness and she was alone again. Mia looked around waiting
for an attack and another figure approached her, but this time
it was familiar. "Grandpa?"
Anus closed his eyes and held
his breath. Megumi sunk to the floor in despair, she couldn't
kill a harmless man. No matter what had happened in the past.
She was weak and was mad at her self more than ever. I cannot
hurt a defenseless man, I am no good.
Belarus stormed into the hall,
he was furious. "Can't you do anything right girl. I should
have killed you that day," he blurted out. Her mouth fell
agape, Anubis was telling the truth. Megumi rushed at him with
her staff out and his eyes flashed as she was thrown against the
"I still own you,"
he said hovering over Megumi. I was an illusion of your so-called
lover boy over there, just so I can get his armor. I decided to
keep you to help me with other missions. But now that I know you're
a weak pathetic fool, you are of no use to me," Belarus said
tilting his head mockingly at her. He lifted his arm as he ready
to strike her.
"Hey, Anubis said, "You
need to quit picking on everyone else and fight me for real"
"Well if I were you I would
be worried about myself. I suggest you hand over the armor or
Mia will get hurt," said Belarus.
Anubis didn't know what to
do; he was stuck between a rock and a hard place. He knew she
would die if he got his hand on his armor and he felt weak from
"No answer, too bad. Guards
get this intruder," screamed Belarus. All of a sudden armored
fighters came pouring into the room. Anubis wasn't so sure he
could take them all on by his self. He took a deep breath and
"Quake with FEAR"
"Granddaughter, you are
such a disappointment. You are lazy
you can't even help the
Warriors, you are worthless." Tears began to weld up in her
eyes. How could he say that, he died trying to protect them all?
He always guided her to the answers.
"This isn't true
aren't my grandfather. He would never say such things
"I agree with him Mia,
came another voice. I don't love you I was going to kill you like
I killed Megumi. You're not smart or worth anything. A tramp like
you sleeping with the first guy you meet. You should be ashamed.
I used you for your body that's all, I don't love you"
"Anubis, this is a lie.
I am human I make mistakes. Stay out of my head. JUST LEAVE ME
ALONE," she cried sinking to the ground. Her mind and heart
struggled at the words that were forming around her head. Her
mind kept telling her it was logical while her heart said everything
that was here was a lie.
"Mia, these are not my
words, but your own. I have done nothing to you
how they loved you and treated you."
Mia couldn't stand anymore of this. She stopped in her thoughts right there and took a deep breath. She couldn't think clearly, she stood back up and held her ground she couldn't trust anyone or anything at the moment, "I agree let the fight begin."
Belarus retreated out of the
room and faded into a nearby wall. Anubis couldn't believe that
he ran in the middle of a fight. He glanced around the room he
had no clue where they kept coming from. Guys I need your help
in here, it's getting busy.
"You rang o' mighty one,
said Kento wrapping his arms around his enemy, he crushed him
till he fell to pieces. The others ran in with Rowen trailing
"Anubis and I will look
for Mia while you guys handle the rest of these fighters,"
said Kayura ducking from fist heading her way. Sage punched the
fighter back and gave her a winning smile in which she rolled
her eyes. They were just about to carry out the plan as they heard
some speak. Before everyone could turn around to see who it was
a giant wall formed separating Anubis and Kayura from the group.
here. Anubis hand over the armor or she's going to die, said Belarus
as something formed in his arms. She was back in her original
clothes and had weird makeup on her face. Anubis growled as he
saw the scratches on her face.
"Mia," he whispered
clenching his fists. I let her down, but that's going to change
"Well Anubis what will
it be," asked Belarus.
Anubis called upon his orb
and said, "Put her on the ground first." Belarus set
her down and Kayrua stood ready to attack. She knew better than
to let Anbuis do something so foolish.
"Now back away from her
and come towards me." Kayura waited till Belarus was a few
feet from Anubis and lurched forward only to fall to her knees.
I can't move, she tried to speak but nothing would come out.
Anubis turned to see Kayura
fall to the ground and Belarus ran to him and grabbed the orb.
Anubis seeing his chance grabbed Mia. He tried to shake her but
she would not wake up.
"Mia come on...Mia. Bastard
what did you do to her?" cried Anubis.
"Well you took so long
getting here. I need her for a friend of mine, Bayaca. She's taking
over he body right now
Anubis' world seemed to crash
and burn right there. He'd rather have to go back to Talpa than
endure this kind of torture. He waited all 400 years of his life
to find her and now when he does, they take her away. Not to see
her sweet smile. Not able to see her face full of soft shadows
and fire kissed angels. His day, his life had no purpose, no meaning,
and no hope. He kneeled to the floor and lifted her in his arms.
He bent his head over her and
into her hair, taking in her delicious sent. He wouldn't even
try to fight anymore. He had no reason to help those humans, not
Kayura turned her head away
was nothing she could do for the people or her friend. She soon
began cursing the day she became the ancient as she wept at the
"I love you Mia I will
always love you," said Anubis softly in her ear.
Mia turned around abruptly
and looked around. He loved her, everything was okay. But before
she could rejoice she returned. "Anubis
Anbuis jumped as he heard Mia
whisper his name. "Fight baby, oh God fight her"
Mia turned to her as she saw
that the woman was growing. She didn't seem to stop growing. This
girl no longer intimated Mia. It's all in your mind; it's all
in my mind. Mia closed her eyes and thought hard and began to
stretch as she did, the darkness was becoming faint. Soon they
both saw eye to eye.
"I don't need you. They
love me and you can't have my body. Get out and get out now'
'Big words for such a mere
"I've got more brains
than you'll ever have. I have friends and family who love me.
He loves me," said Mia. She slowly began shrinking as light
shined through the darkness. Mia saw smiled as she was winning.
Anubis didn't know what was
going on, she was convulsing in his arms. He had no clue what
was happening inside her. "Mia come on," was all he
could get out.
" You were a worthy opponent
Mia," she said before she disintegrated. Light shined into
her body and pieces of her seems to disappear. Mia relaxed as
she fell in to deep sleep.
Kayura felt the pressure being
lifted from her body and looked around in shock. "Ahhh"
was the only thing that came out. I can speak and move again,
she thought. She scrambled over to Anubis and put her hand on
Anubis looked up and smiled
at Kayura. She glanced over him to see Mia's eyes fluttering open.
"Anyone get the number
on that semi," she said putting her hands on her head. She
was fine, she was his again. His Mia.
Kayura stood and noticed that
the wall that had formed around them was crumbling. Dust began
to kick up as the last pieces of the wall fell. It wasn't over
yet though they had to get Anubis' orb back. She saw the rest
of the guys just finishing off the last of the fighters and walked
over to them
They looked totally exhausted.
They were breath heavily with sweat pouring down their faces and
yet managed to smile when they saw them.
"Is everyone all right?
We couldn't get to you all," asked Sekhemet.
"Mia is fine but we have
to get. Kayura's words were cut off by a deafening scream. The
Warriors all turned to see Belarus behind Anubis charging at him
at full speed with a sword in hand. They saw that Anubis couldn't
get out of the way in time and rushed to his aid.
Anubis heard him coming and
tried to run but Mia was weighing him down. He kept jogging but
heard that Belarus had stopped running. He turned to see Megumi
holding her staff against Belarus' sword. They both pulled back
"Get out of the way girl"
"I will not let you destroy
anyone else's love. You should have killed me when you had the
chance," she said reaching out for him and missing his shoulder.
"She killed my wife I
will not let her live." And he thrusted his sword into her
and she jerked back and looked at her stomach. She put her hand
on her stomach and gazed at her bloodied hand. She reached out
to Belarus who shoved the sword in further
"No you lose Belarus,"
she said in a weak voice holding the orb in her hand teasing him.
She tossed it behind her to where Anubis was standing. She stuck
her staff in his shoulder, and closed her eyes as she called forth
strength from her mind. She smiled slightly as she said, "Forgive
Immortal Wings of Devotion Strike."
Everyone shielded their eyes
and huddled together as winds blew past them furiously. Both Megumi
and Belarus where gone. Kayura grabbed the orb and gave it to
"Let's get out of here,"
he said as the light descended taking them home.
"Oh What a headache,"
said Mia. She slowly sat up and slid her feet over the edge of
the bed. She looked to the far corner of her room only to see
Anubis slumped in a chair. He was fast asleep, and his hair flowed
around his head as he mumbled something. She couldn't help but
grin at him.
She slightly shivered and rose
from the bed and shut the balcony doors. She suddenly was engulfed
in a pair of warm arms.
"How are you feeling?"
came a voice from behind her. Despite the ache in her head, her
body tingled all over, and she had to fight to keep herself from
squirming in his arms.
"Much better just a little
headache. Where are the boys," she said placing her arms
"Everyone is at school
and Kayura and the Warlords are busy with another project."
"Ohh they are," she
said turning around to face him. He noticed that her eyes had
a lustful cloud in them.
"Mia I have something to
" he started. He went through everything from
his past to his worries. She nodded once or twice. It got easier
as he went along until he came to his feelings.
How he need her presence, that
she made him feel more complete; his secret daydreams of her and
how he would spend the rest of his life with her.
It hurt him even more to express
his worries; that she would die before he got a chance to truly
grow old with someone, if she'd reject marrying him to keep her
independence. He was scared to even look her in the face and when
he did he felt as though someone had stuck a dagger in his heart.
Tears where streaking down her
face as he spoke and yet she smiled faithfully at him. He couldn't
understand. "All this time I was worried about whether you
loved me and you were just as bad. I love you and rather be with
you than anyone," she said
He felt a huge wave of relief
hit him, he wasn't sure of it himself but it was something about
the way she said it that made him feel better. He wiped her tears
away; he couldn't bear to see her cry even if she was happy.
"Now that I understand your past, I understand you better. You opened up to me that's what it's all about. Many people have fought for our love, I think it's our turn." She said rising from the bed.
"I agree," he said
smiling at her.
"Just hold me," she
whispered in his ear.
Mia slowly sat up on her bed
and looked around. A loud blaring noise came from her alarm and
she hit it hard and sat trying to gather herself. What a dream,
I've never dream about my past before. Maybe I'm just missing
Anubis. She stood up and calmly walked down the stairs. She went
into the kitchen and glanced at a clock on the nearby wall.
" Ohmigod I forgot to pick up the guys," she grabbed her keys as she sprinted for the car not noticing the pair of eyes that were glaring at her from behind the door.
