Marcus paced around for a minute.

"Maybe we could figure out a way to shut down the chips...," he said, after some thought.

"Impossible. Almost everybody has them," C.C replied.

"True...maybe we could destroy the system that controls them," Marcus suggested.

"We'll I saw it when I was in Solar-coms underground HQ but it'd be harder to get back into than it was to break into and I doubt it'd work they have an insane amount of security there.' Said C.C.
"How did you get in?" Asked Marc.
"Through the air vents when when I came here." Said C.C.
"Came here? You're an Alien! That explains everything the secret base the robot arms the tech smarts you're an ALIEN!" Said Mark.
"No I'm not I've seen aliens but I'm not one of them." Said C.C.
"Actually I'm from the future." Said C.C.
"But time travel is impossible!" Said Mark.
"Really people tell you that? Huh the first time travel device was made in 2012." Said C.C.
"Really? Weird." Said Mark.

"Time Travel." said Inserge, leaning back against the wall. "This is getting good. A brat from the future who's seen aliens, and crawled into the highest security building on the planet. I've only been there once kid, and I'll tell you one thing...Getting in is the easy part. staying in for more than five seconds, now that's the hard part. If I really am to believe that you've infiltrated their defense systems, and got valuable information out of it, you deserve a metal!"
"Believe what you want." said C.C as his backpack sprouted a mechanical arm, which rested itself on a rail behind him.
"So assuming I'm ok with all that, do you even have a plan to stop this all?" Inserge demanded.
"Isn't that what we're doing right now?" responded C.C with another question.
"I guess... So, what did that master-control thing you were talking about look like?" Inserge asked
"Well," began C.C focusing his goggles, like a person would furrow his brows "I saw it down a long hallway, 'looked to be about in the center of the complex, and it was a pillar of buttons and data-ports. Actually, the room it was in looked like a silo would probably look like, and from what I understand, the gents down at Solar-Com are going to fill it with zerbite. Ya know, to store the memories of the brainwashed people."
"Did you see how full it was?" Asked Marcus, eager to help.
"No, but there was some, It's hard to remember, but I think that there was a green glow to the room, indicating that the filling process has already started." stated C.C
"I see," said Inserge, not really paying much attention. "So what do you do here at your fancy lab that's so important?"
"Well this is where I make my inventions, such as my backpack and my time machine."
"Huh." grunted the pirate. "So how much money is this going to make?" Questioned Inserge as he finished loading his shotgun with a satisfying click. "'Cause, If this little coup fails, I don't want to find myself broke also."
Inserge grinned. This was interesting.

"I thought the first time machine was built in 1985. It was an old DeLorean and-nevermind."

Marcus thought for a moment.

"Well, we better figure out a way to get inside Solar-Com HQ by the end of the year."

"I sure hope we can." Said C.C. "I'm starving any place around here good to eat?"
"Well the closest place is Cybro's." Said Marcus.
"Huh I guess we'll go there then." Said C.C.
They all went back into the elevator to the dumpster but C.C found a small door in the back of the dumpster.
"Huh I wonder if this leads to the restaurant." Said C.C then he went through the door and the others followed. After they went through the door they realized they were behind a bar counter where the manager would normally be. Then when they stood up they saw a a man in a big red coat with black markings and a helmet with a visor. The man turned around.
"C.C is that you?" Asked The man.
"Yeah who the heck are you?" Asked C.C.
"Why, don't you remember? I'm Ginko." Said Ginko. "You assigned me to be the leader of the rebellion."
"Oh yeah jack told me about you. Got anything to eat here? And how much does it cost because I don't have much." Said C.C.
"Well rebels get free food." Said Ginko. "Sadly there aren't very many who are these guys?"
"I'm marc and this is Warren and Inserge." They all waved there hands weakly.
"So what would you like to eat?" Asked Ginko.
"Umm got any pizza?"Asked C.C.
"Yeah sure what kind?" Asked Ginko.
"I'll have Hawaiian." Said C.C."
"Hey Nintha go tell the chef to make a Hawaiian pizza tell them it's for C.C." Said C.C.
"Okay!" Said Nintha his shiny armor reflected the neon lights.
"Who's Nintha?" Asked C.C.
"One of our most talented spies he is a highly trusted rebel." Said Ginko.

Roger's head was spinning with so much news. He was cursing his add and drinking problem then decided to lead the RATs the right way. The thought popped out with a bang.
"Wait a second, That really was a bang."
"Halt Mr. Jones!"
"Never you *"
"Death it is then."
"Oh, I don't think so."
sorry for such a short post. I just wanted to show you I'm not dead and that I'm very busy.

Samantha sat on the bed of Kiara's tiny one-room appartment, and looked around. There wasn't much stuff there, as it seemed the other woman used the room mainly for sleeping.

"You should get some rest now, you've had quite a day behind you for a civilian", Kiara said. There was a hint of compassion in her voice, although Samantha was still unsure if she could call her a friend yet. At least the R.A.T. had saved her life on several occasions today and taken her to her appartment for the night.

"Yeah... It was a close call with Mr. Charon in the sewers. Glad we got away, though. Thanks... for everything", Samantha said with a sigh.

"No prob. Grab whatever you can find from the fridge if you're hungry. I'll go out for a while, so don't leave this room until I get back."

Having said that, Kiara left. Samantha was left alone with thoughts spinning around in her head wildly. She laid back on the bed. It wasn't very comfortable, but it would do. She knew that tomorrow, after she would give the hackers entrance to the Solar-Coms top secret computer systems, this would all end for her. She would return to the safety of Australia and keep her fingers crossed that the R.A.T.s could deal with Borgiss and his maniacal plans.

"This isn't my war", she muttered as she closed her eyes. But deep inside her she knew she was only fooling herself.

In no time, Samantha's fears and worries gave in to exhaustion, and she was fast asleep.

Inserge sat at the table with the other self proclaimed rebels. They were talking. Nintha had joined them bringing the pizza and a salad for Inserge(who was a piscitarian and didn't eat ham.) Nintha also brought with him a story. It seemed that he had infiltrated Solar-com's Hidden underground base yesterday as well and had seen C.C escape into the sewer. Unfortunately he had been discovered by a rogue Oni Agent working there. he had had to virtually stall the guards and make a quick getaway to avoid being "Questioned." Upon the mention of the Oni Agent Inserge grew intrigued.
"Tell me more of this Oni Agent." Inserge interrupted.
"Well what can I say? You know what an oni Agent is right?" Asked Nintha
"Yes"
"Ok. So he, or she, must have been incredibly smart, Even by tech ninja standards, to hack into Solar com's database and find out that I wasn't who I said I was. Also very cautious to check-"
"And he's very skilled with a blade." Said Inserge.
"What?" asked marcus.
"I 'encountered' him coming out of the sewer last night." said Inserge. "' Must have chased him half way to New Tokyo before he used a smoke bomb and damn well nearly escaped. But I fought him until he cheated and pulled out a gun."
"You 'encountered' him leaving the sewer?" asked C.C with a worried expression on his face. "Which part."
"The one you were in. The one with that mutant."
"How did you know I was there last night."
"Well you did tell us." Started Iserge
"Well you weren't listening." said C.C defensively.
"No, I wasn't, but I also knew because I have most of the sewer complex rigged with cameras."
The others at the table looked at each other for a minute, and then C.C broke the silence.
"The Oni agent must be hunting me."
------------------------------------------------
Not to far away near the mining side of Terrel Roger stood above one of the new security bots that were being tested in the mining facilities. They were not very effective. Roger was scouting ahead for mission to take over one of the zerbite mines. Of all of them Roger had chosen this one because it had the least actual guards. It was run by the ruthless mining company Rock Raiders. They were extremely effective, but a bit amoral, and infamously non-eco-friendly. Their services would better benefit them on a desolate rock planet. This particular mine produced about two-times as much zerbite as the surrounding mines though, so the authorities turned a blind eye. There were rumours that Solar-com held it's contract, and Roger wanted to found out if that was true. Roger ducked behind a crate of Zerbite as another security bot sweeped by, completely ignoring it's fallen comrade. "Robots so will not ever replace humans." said Roger as he tumbled to another crate.

Roger quickly pulled out a dagger and stabbed the crate. Out spilled no less than 5 shards or zerbite quickly scooping them up he escaped the cave. 2 hours went by. Whew said roger as he came strolling back into RAT headquarters.
"Whats going on?
"Is that zerbite?"
"Welcome back."
"Later, Later" said Roger for he had an appointment that was of dire need.

Marcus nodded.
"Alright, so we just have to figure out a way to nullify Solar-Com's mindchip scheme. A bit hard for 4 guys, but doable. I personally think taking down the agent is not necassary, as we can defend ourselves well enough form him, if he even catches us. The hardest thing I see is trying to get into Solar-Com HQ. I'm thinking we need someone on the inside, or some kind of stealth tech."
Marcus took a bit of the newly delivered pizza. It was juicy and delicious. If they got some for free, he'd come all the time.

Okay guys I have access to my moms laptop so I can still post just not very much.


"I bet I could design some sort of stealth gadgets." Said C.C. "But it'd take a while."
"How about you guys make yourselves useful and go help out jenny at the mining center she's been having some trouble with her mining droids maybe you could help." Said Ginko.
"How do we get there?" Asked Inserge.
"Go back to the HQ and take a transport pod to sector 3802." Said Ginko.
C.C took out his detectix and took a pen looking object off of it.
"Can you say that again? I need to write it down." Said C.C.
"Sector 3802." Said Ginko. "What is that thing anyway?" Asked Ginko.
"this is a strange almost paranormal device that can hold 10 terabytes can make a group of people teleport a short distance can hack into any computer travel through time and much more.
I'm still trying to find out what this button does." Said C.C pointing to a small button on the side that had a symbol that looked kind of like a rectangle with two circles in it and a line coming off the bottom of it.
"Sure....." Said Ginko sarcastically. "Well go now they need your help more than I do."
"Okay." Said Warren.
The gang opened the cabinet that led to the dumpster and went in it. then they walked over to a tube connected to a large hose and C.C dialed 3802 into the control panel and the tube opened and they all went inside it was very cramped.
"Ughh I can hardly breath in here!' Said Inserge.
Then they all disappeared into a cloud of static that quickly evaporated as they were transported to the mining base.
"Ow! You guys still use quantum teleportation? Don't you know matter transmitters are better?" Said C.C rubbing his head while looking around the dark area lit only by the neon strips lining the walls and a few lamps overhead. they all stood up. C.C walked around then studied a large metal wall then found a crack where some light was seeping through. Then the enormous metal wall split in a zigzag pattern revealing the outside world. It was very bright outside and he saw many people doing many things there was a dirty man with an outline of goggles were there wasn't any dirt working a large crane there was a short man with shaggy hair and a metal peg-leg climbing down a ladder to a garage. And then a tall thin lady in a mining outfit came by with goggles above her eyes she was wearing black gloves and bulky black boots and came up to them.
"You must be the ones Ginko sent to fix the robots." She said. "I'm jenny."
"Yeah he sent us where are these robots?" asked C.C.
"They're over by Pago." Said Jenny pointing to a guy with a mechanical arm and a jean jacket.
He was messing with some of the circuits of the twitching robot.
"I'll take over from here." Said C.C. "It seems like just a minor Cerebral Cortex malfunction it'll probably only take about 10 minutes to fix." Said C.C. The man growled and went lumbering to the ladders and went down. Sure enough in 10 minutes C.C had fixed them and told Jenny.
"They're done." Said C.C.
"All of them?" Asked Jenny. C.C nodded. "That was fast. How much did Ginko say I would pay you?" Asked Jenny.
"You don't need to pay me I like working with this kind of stuff." Said C.C.
"Okay well I'll be sure to tell you next time something needs checked." She said. Then she smiled and walked off.
"Now where's Warren Inserge and Marcus?" Thought C.C. Then he walked over to the ladder and went down stairs. There was a massive garage down there with a huge drill and tons of power cells and fuel packs laying around then he saw Warren helping Pago change the fuel on the drill.
"Where are the others?" Yelled C.C over the loud noises of heavy machinery.

That's what Markus was thinking as well.He and Inserge had decided to check the place out, of course Markus only wanted to inspect the mining equipment and see if he could maybe swipe some raw materials. Inserge it seems had other plans, and as soon as the two had crept into one of the mine tunnels, Inserge had vanished. Markus stumbled through the dark corridors looking for Inserge, or any one else who could help. As he walked further from his entry point, he heard more and more. There was the lonely noise of water dripping far off, the noise of distant drills, and the annoying wind noise that you can hear as you travel through the tunnels to Onu-Koro in Mata-Nui online game 1. There was minimal light. The only illumination came from an occasional mine light. The regulation said that there should be a light every 20 feet, but it was pretty obvious that they cut corners around here, and most of the way was unlight. He had been walking for merely 30 minutes, but to him it felt like nearly two hours and the walls felt like they were closing in on him. Then, he encountered a fork in the tunnel. There were wooden signs above the two entrances, but they were written in bionicle, so he couldn't read them. One said "RR HQ," and the other said "discontinued shaft." He didn't know what the first sign meant, but he sure as hell knew the definition of discontinued, that meant; we don't work here anymore! Which meant, no rescue. He turned left, and walked.
(RR HQ means Rock-Raiders Head-Quarters)
________________________________________________________
Inserge padfooted gently in the rainy daytime streets of the mining district. The surface of the earth over here was violated. Having been overrun by irresolute miners, the place reeked of non-gasoline fuel and the scenery was scarred by buildings rested besides old quarries . Mining equipment was hoisted by large grey and turquoise machines, and miners walked around shouting. No one noticed Inserge as he swiftly made his way past the huddled masses. He had a goal; find Sheldon. It was a stroke of luck that Sheldon actually lived in the mining district.
_________________________________________________________
Roger sat in his small meeting room with three other Rats.
"Well gentlemen," he began. "I believe that it is time we invaded the mining association called 'Rock-Raiders'"
"For too long has it gotten away with breaking rules and monopoly restrictions. I just discovered that they were secretly ordered to provide Solar-Com with any more zerbite they mine, from now until Solar-Com tells them to stop. Doesn't that sound a tad bit suspicious to you? Especial combined with the news we overheard them talking about a day ago."
Roger Waited for either of the three to respond. The looked at their papers sceptically, and then one spoke up.
"First of all, I'm a girl, not a man, and second of all, This plan you are suggesting is ridiculous. I mean, a full assault, both virtually and physically, are you drunk?!"
"Thank you," He said "Now does anybody besides this raging female canine have anything to say?."
The guy closest to Roger spoke next. "Well Jones. I've got to say, the plan isn't your best. I understand you've been under allot of stress, and been in allot of battles but, I'm not sure I could let my division back yours. Sorry bud."
"Roger, you know we do have a few 'independent' and affiliated groups working with us, maybe one of them could pull off a quick takeover" the third said meekly.
"Ok, Ok.." mumbled Roger Jones. "So who do we have to call?"
"Well C.Cs group is in the area, why don't we contact him?"
"Good, do it."
___________________________________________________________
"Hello Sheldon" said Inserge as he walked uninvited into a rundown house clouded by the excessive smoke produced by a large chest high pipe protruding from it's minuscule lawn. Inside, the house was a junk heap. It was as if a sloppy collage student and a pig had mated and produced a male child who believed them to be neat freaks, moved out and decided to lodge here. Through tunnels of filth and scraps and junk, Inserge snuck, until he arrived at what was probably the only full sized room in the house. Right next to a grey table with a greasy box of buffalo wings, on a bizarre mechanical comfy chair sat a slob. He wore a red sweater with a stained classic space emblem. His brown trousers were disgusting and most likely originally tan. His hands were crusted with buffalo sauce, and his sleeping face had sunglasses and food gunk. In front of him was a WIDE SCREEN computer, with it's screen turned on revealing nothing but a blue background. Inserge crept over to him, and pulled on a wire hanging out of his chair. Sheldon immediately straightened up dropping a wing and rubbed the back of his neck where the chord attached.
"Sorry to wake you Sheldon," Whispered Inserge maliciously , "But I need to be uploaded and out before anyone notices my disappearance."
"Yeah," Mumbled the slob as he removed himself from his seat, walked over to a pile, picked up a suit and carried it back to Inserge. "This is yours I think"
"Of course it's mine, it's got my name written on it." spewed Inserge contemptuously.

----------------------------
An hour later Inserge was standing next to C.C telling him that Markus and he had been separated as they had been looking around, and despite having searched for the poor fellow, he just couldn't find him. Which was the truth.

Marcus continued down the rapidly narrowing tunnel. When he reached the hole at the end, he was crawling on his stomach through the cave. What he saw a hundred feet below startled him.
There was a large base, with tons of primitive mining equipment he wouldn't even bother swiping. But the worst thing....the very worst thing....was the color scheme. Teal, brown, gray, and chrome? Marcus practically threw up. He quickly turned (No easy feat in such a small tunnel) and crawled rapidly towards the fork. Once he arrived at it, he took the way he originally came.
He soon finally arrived back at the base, covered in dust and dirt. He glared at Inserge.
"Four. Bloody. Hours. I watched a group of primitive miners who are obviously colorblind, got attacked by beasts made of rock, and a damn crab with some robot on its back tried to kill me! Where the hell were you?!"

Two miners were having a break, and were discussing culinary tips.

"Sometimes, I dream about cheese" one miner announced in a weird manner. Before he knew it, a large computer monitor had been hurled at both of them, and they were rendered unconscious. Reptile leaped from the shadows, the source of flying monitors.

"Cramarr! Get inside the drilling vehicle! Time for some espionage!" Reptile hissed.

As the little crustacean-like being crawled into the cockpit of the largest one, Reptile spoke through his wrist communicator in a another tongue - the language of the mutants.

Afterwards, Reptile hid the bodies in a crate that was to be shipped to a school on a distant continent. He plugged lots of smaller devices into the big vehicle and into the control station.

Three figures strode into the limelight, and Reptile welcomed them.

"Pretend you are heavy-duty miners waiting for further orders! Use this and plug it in to your helmets!" Reptile ordered and he tossed some small devices to them, as they nodded.

The figures were clad in ebony black armour with tinted visors on their helmets, so it would be impossible to see what's really inside. Each carried a rifle, with one carrying a rocket launcher.

"It's about time the mutants rose to power...make sure I am not interrupted!" Reptile snapped, as he jumped onto the ceiling of the mine entrance, crawling like a gecko. His allies saluted to him.

Hukang stood motionless before the window, leaning heavily on his cane. In contrast his shadow danced on the ceiling above him as it was lit by a myriad of neon lights from the world below. The Virtu-net existed all around him, shimmering gold. Streams of data and clusters of images surrounded the man, an orchestra of information being relayed from locations all around Terrel , the Earth, the offshore colonies.

“...these upstarts will not get far. The Agent is already en-route. More will follow. ”

“They won’t stand a chance.” nodded Hukang.

“I thought you may have concerns in this matter, regarding your... delegate.”

“My dedication to our goal is unshakeable. The problems I’d soon face otherwise would be unacceptable.” Hukang replied. “We can let nothing stand in our way this close to the fruition of the plan.”

“Yes. Good... good. They are all our pawns Hukang...” the hoarse voice chuckled, “..A means to our ends! Another will be with you presently. We shall send them all. They will not fail.”

“That, I am sure of.”

“Soon Hukang. Soon...” smiled Borgiss, ending his transmission.

+ + +

A floating sensation, a gentle descent. Gold melting away... reality trickling in. Hukang faced the bright lights on the other side of the glass. His eyes narrowed - a sudden presence at his side.

“Ah... Shi.” he smiled.

“A pleasure, Hukang...” chimed a girl’s voice, like the sound of tiny bells.

Their shadows danced on the ceiling above them: the old Ching and the Oni Agent.

+ + +

C.C. pondered over the events that had led him to this place, this time.

“I believe that – “, he looked up and stopped short. The others spun around confused as to what had grabbed his attention.

A figure clad in white stood with his back to the wall across a ways from them, arms folded. He didn’t look at them as he spoke.

“Hi there.” he said nonchalantly.

“Holy -”

“It’s -”

The group quickly reached for their weapons. Like a flash the figure was gone from the wall. C.C. felt the coolness of a blade touch the underside of his chin. He knew it was a vibro-blade, felt it resonating through his teeth. It wasn’t hard to guess who this was. He didn’t dare move.

“Ah-ah-ah...” Agent Ichi addressed the others, “Lose the weapons or he loses his head.”

Ichi was off to C.C.’s side, arm and blade held straight. The group glanced at each other and slowly responded.

“Inserge...” Marcus called, seeing his weapon still aloft, sensing his animosity. “c’mon.” Inserge reluctantly responded.

“You’ve been quite a distraction,” the tech-ninja twisted his blade forcing C.C. to raise his chin, “and interesting plans you’ve been making. You’re not likely to set foot into Solar-com any time soon with the entire building on high-alert. Even with stealth, sensors will trip everywhere.” C.C. glanced at him from the corners of his eyes. His shape seemed to fragment, shift and reform as he stood there. This was the Agent he’d been made aware of. C.C. was aware of the Oni and the part they would play in his future-history. He knew who this might be.

“Start talking.” Ichi’s tone darkened.

“I’m a traveller” said C.C. “a trouble-shooter you could say. Things are a mess here and I’m here to try and fix them.”

“It seems the mess here is of your own making.”

“You know what I mean, Ichi.”

“We’re not quite at first names yet, nor will we be if you don’t start explaining yourself. Quickly.”

“There is much evil afoot here, at the moment you are but a pawn. But you have a chance to change things. Change them for the better. I can’t explain Ichi. But I know your past is clouded...”

“You presume to know of my past?”

“I know where you can find one of many keys to unlocking it...”, said C.C. Is this how the course of future-history went? He thought. “...but you’ll find nothing if me or any of my colleagues here come to harm.”

Ichi grit his teeth. He couldn’t ignore what this man was saying, if man was the right word: his visor displayed the most anomalous readings. It was apparent that he knew something though. He still had time to spare.

“What’s your name?”

“C.C.”

“Okay C.C. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Take me to where you think I’ll find this information - and quickly. If you or the merry-men here try anything stupid you’ll find yourself very rapidly...” - he leaned close to his face - “out of time.”

Marcus kept glancing between Ichi's blade and CC. There had to be a way out of this. He thought for moment.
"Er, CC, do you still have my tools in your backpack?" he asked.
He only hoped Ichi didn't know about the backpack, or the hint would be useless. Inserge just kept angrily glaring at Ichi, occasionaly throwing glances at his weapon lying on the table.

Ichi was too focused on his target wich was a weakness. C.C kept as a mental note. C.C signaled the computerbug which crawled up to ichi's head an hooked up to the helmet I chi didn't notice because his eyes were focusing to much on the human.
"Hopefully I can shut down his weapons with the helmet" C.C thought He was lucky that his goggles mirrored lenses blocked the view of his eyes or ichi would of noticed tat C.C was looking for more weaknesses.
I'm very sorry guys but my dad wont let me o the computer till I get one of my grades up so i wont be able to post for a while unless I'm doing homework on the computer then i can sneak on and post. So Striker you're the man in charge until further notice okay? :hmpf_bad:

Inserge looked on at what was happening with a smirk. He leaned back an crossed his legs as C.C mentally signaled one of his dohickies to blind Ichi.
Ichi, who had been examining the human was shocked by his sudden inability to work his helmet. In a swift motion Ichi retreated and tapped his helmet. Nothing. This would require more extensive fixing. Inserge's smile vanished as the ninja left.
"Hey, aren't you going to chase after him? Shouted Inserge.
"I think we should capture him." said C.C, "I was trying to shut down the rest of his armor, but he left too quickly."
"Your all useless." Grumbled Inserge as he picked up his Vibro-blade. "Let's see this cat held hostage by the mouse."
As Inserge left, Warren said "Hey guys, don't you think he would have been a powerful Allie?."
"More likely a liability." said C.C. gruffly
"What just happened?" asked Pago.
"Hello C.C. are you there?" asked Roger's voice from a radio held by Nintha.
"Umm..? Yea."
"Great, I need you to do something for me..."

Then there was a loud noise and a huge tremor causing the ground to shake. A nearby lake seemed to have a disgusting green ooze coming from under the metal gate the lake was coming from. A nausiating stench filled the air and dark figures appeared in the opening of the gate they all quickly ran away from the river if you could even call it that anymore as the cement around it started crumbling revealing a swirling pool of ooze. Then they were able to identify these creatures as they stepped into the light, Mutants. All of them wearing barbaric cyber implants and devices that were horribly thrown togther. Then a whirlpool formed in the spinning vat of repulsive waste and a large clockwork mechanical monstrasity emerged from the swirling vat it resembled a giant green worm with all sorts of tubes savagly shoved through its skin and chains hanging all over it. It had a large collar that held its body to what looked like its head. Its head was a huge mass of slimy appendages surrounding a large orange eye. Its back was covered in large bony fins jutting out of its metal spine. A mutant was ridng this beast who jumped off and was then identified as reptile. But he had made a battle suit that covered every inch of his body other than his head.
"Now the age of the mutants will begin!" Said Reptile. The mutants buhind him roared in approval.

Not far away from the chaos enveloping the heroes, A white clad tech ninja repaired his helmet with an antivirus chip. Unable to hear as keenly without the magnifying power of his state-of-the-art listening devices embedded in his helmet, Ichi hadn't the faintest idea that he, HE, had been followed. Sauntering over to the crouching white tiger came Inserge, torn black cape swirling in the artificial wind. His ever-humming vibro-blade held loosely at his side. A silver sash wrapped around his head, and covered by his flowing brown hair. His rusty armour glistened with rain.
"Hello There." He called confidently to Ichi. Ichi spun around and flipped his helmet back on his head. He grabbed for his own Vibro-blade, which unlike Inserge's black one, was a brilliant gold colour.
"I presume you wish to kill me? Finish the job for your treacherous friends? Go ahead assassin, cut me down. Try. Niether of us will ever be satisfied. I desire knowledge, and you, carnage."
Inserge chuckled. "I don't care how noble you think you are Oni, and I don't intend to kill you either."
"That's a relief." Ichi said wryly.
"Rather, I wish to strike a deal with you."
"well?." Ichi demanded after Inserge paused to contemplate.
"You are a skilled blades-man, an equal to myself. No. Greater. You are also blindly following a crazed man who intends to conquer the world." Inserge went on to explain the details of Borgisses plan. "I know you likely already knew this, and are not likely to switch sides due to moral Alignment. I however, have something that Borgiss, or whoever you serve would never offer you. The truth."
At that Ichi grew intrigued. "Why are you telling me this?" he demanded, sheathing his sword.
"Because," Said Inserge "If we are on the same side, I won't have to kill you."

The two walked back to the group in silence. Inserge had told Ichi of his hacker friend Sheldon, who had been a famous inventor before Borgiss took his place. (He had developed a suit capable of placing a person in the 3D world known as the Virtu-Net, and then Borgiss developed the chip, bankrupting Sheldon.) Sheldon was currently the worlds greatest hacker and was unaffiliated with any of the gangs, though an honorary RAT. If anyone could find the information Ichi needed, it was him.
As the two neared the group, the saw the vortex. Mutants chased minors with their bizarre claws and radioactive bites. And amidst the carnage rode Reptile. Almost unrecognizable in his full body suit, Reptile was on a monstrosity of metal, holding a rusty Javelin in one arm, and filthy grey vibro-blades in the other three. C.C was sprawled on the floor, a length of pipe rolled just out of his reach. He was unconscious but his back-pack arms were fighting for him. Markus and warren were holding their own against the army of monsters. They both had plasma rifles, and Markus was also throwing computer virus bombs, which didn't seem to help much. Nintha was battling Craparr who was holding a meat cleaver in one of his giant claws. Reptile waited in the center of the chaos, regarding it with a smug look on his face.
"Hey, Lizard." Called Inserge "I thought that you were going to wait for after everyone was mind-washed by Borgiss before taking over."
Reptile stared at him in confusion.
"Yes toad, I know your plan. You speak out loud into my cameras all the time."
Reptile's surprise turned to rage. "Then you will die first." He leapt from his mechanized steed, over the vast pool of sewage, and landed feet from Inserge.
Inserge readied his sword, and Reptile slashed with one and swirled the others, meeting Inserge's as he swiped it away.
C.C opened his eyes just as his automated arms tossed a mutant into the fowl pit. " steadied himself and looked around...
Ichi joined the fight with Reptile, evening the odds.
"This doesn't make us friends." Said Inserge as he dodged a Javalin swipe.
"Naturally" Retorted Ichi, twirling his blade to deflect two of reptile's. "You still owe me an address."

C.C hen remembered something about the future.
"Reptile Don't do this!" Said C.C.
Reptile stared i his direction his eyes glazed over by the goggles of the power suit.
"What do yo you know human?" Said Reptile.
"I came from the future and..." Said C.C.
"AND WHAT?" Yelled reptile. "You think I'd fall for that?'
"No you are a famous person of history." Said C.C "But not for doing this.
"Than what was I famous for. You can't be telling the truth but your story humors me." Said Reptile.
"you where famous for bringing mutants and humans together." Said C.C. "An alliance. There was even a mutant president at one time I think his name was Kritax."
Reptile whispered to himself in an unnatural manor it reminded C.C of Golem from "Lord of The Rings".
"Trust the human! No he's filth kill him! No he might be telling the truth. No kill him slowly!" Reptile argued with himself.
"I could help you we could all help you the rebellion joining forces with the mutants! We could take down solar-com! You'd have access to our technology and we could maybe even get you a Doctor to stop your mood swings and split personality syndrome." Said C.C.
"Lies all lies! We're freaks we'll always be freaks!" Said Reptile Raisig is sword and he swung in a down motion.
"Wait look!" Said C. C holding up the detectix.

Sure enough there was an article on the first mutant president and a picture of a large lobster like mutant standing behind a microphone. Reptile pulled back his sword and put it to his side.
"Stop!!!" Reptile shrieked. All of the mutants suddenly froze and stared at him.

Inserge stared around at the gathered mutants as they watched their leader speak.
"Today, we declared war on the non mutant inhabitants of Terrel, but today I was shown the light, and from the darkness we shall rise. We, the Mutants, of the Island continent of Terrel, must forge forward, and declare our peace with the Humans, and unite together to spread peace. No longer will I be controlled by the murderer inside of me. All of you must do the same if we are to coexist with our fellow people--"
At the word coixist, his eyes seemed to change and loose their shine. His hands, once held high were now grasping at the thin air. His head shook, as if trying to expel a nasty thought. The brave scientist was gone...The beast had taken back his monstrous body. "No!" he coughed "THis is not how it enDs! Humains and Mutants can never live in HarMony! Only HaRM can aid teh situition!!! Attack!" "No, we're making a mistake! The hacker showed us the truth!" "HE Lies to us! He wants to kILLs us! "Do not attack! Peace will win us the day!" "Revolutions are what WE needs! Freedom for ThE opPressed!" "Think of Gandhi, or, or..." "No mOre thinking! We squaNder our time! Theys are unpeppared!"
"I Think that I have a solution to your problem." Interrupted Inserge. "I know you know of Borgiss's plot to take over the world. Destroy him!"
"How AbouTs I destroy YOU!!" "No, The soldier has a point." "We haVes a Lance" "That's not what I meant! If The evil borgiss is killed, it will end his plot, and the Mutants will be seen as saviors!" "We don't Need tO save anY Humains!" "No." The Scientist said. "You will not take my body!" "OuRs... Go ahead, be friendly... but when they stabs our back, I will killll themmmm...." With that the malignant voice faded to the back of Reptiles mind, just as he swallowed it's vocalization. "We will help you."
The Mutants cheered, or maybe they were roaring in protest, but either way, they broke the silence with their feral shrieks as they swarmed back into the sewers, lead by Kritax, who was badly wounded, but hopeful for the future. Reptile stayed behind.
"I will try to assist you in your quest to kill Borgisss." He hissed to C.C., "but for both of our sakes, you'd best be tellin' the truethh."
Nintha stood up, and walked over to C.C. and said; "There's another message for you. It's from someone called Kiarra; 'Hey C.C. I've picked up someone who can help. I'm bringing her to your location as I speak, Hey what's that?! Crap! It's that old guy with the hook hand, and he's following me! I'm coming in hot, so when you see me, shoot the Cycle behind me, K! See Ya! Crapp!' Ok, that's the end."
Uh oh, looks like we've got trouble." Said C.C.

"Well let's go up then" said Inserge

"OK, said CC"

As they got to the top of the ladder leading up to the world they realised something, and reptile in an angry voice shouted "There is a bloody car in the way"

"Well to the next one the" said Inserge

------------------

Above Kiara and the hook hand guy were fighting each other.

"Whats your problem oldy" shouted Kiara

"You, clever girl" replied the man

Just then Kiara spat hard into the mans eye, giving her a few seconds to run. Samantha was right there too. BANG went the sewage hatch as reptile pushed it open from below making the old guy smash into a wall and fall down knocked out.

"Good going" Kiara calmly said after she turned to see the men...
