Then I saw one of them trying to run out of the corner of my eyes, but I wasn’t having any more fun, it was time to end this battle and get out of here. “Activate rapid-fire mode!” My guns got smaller and changed, from single barrel weapons to having up to six barrels. They all aimed forward as I raised the two seven-barrel guns that materialized in my hands and aimed them forward. A grin stretched across my face that was bigger than all the rest, almost seeming to go from ear to ear.
“Come out, come out where ever you are. The big bad Will wants to play.” I said with a sinister voice that crept through the rubble that lay all around me. I saw no movement anywhere, but just in case I was going to flatten everything, to make sure nothing was there. The Princess was safely behind me, which meant everything I could see in front of me was my enemy. I looked back to see if I could see her and she was standing about fifty feet behind me. She was walking towards me like she wanted to tell me something. I looked in front of me and couldn’t see anything but trees and burning rubble, I walked backward while still keeping my guns aimed forward. I lowered just the guns I was holding as she pointed, then spoke in her normal creepy way. “Two of your miles that way, the castle will be under attack in 25 minutes, it’s time to stop messing around, we need to move now.” She said then smiled at me.
I just laughed, then turned my back to her and got down on one knee. “Get on, it’s time to go little one.” She grabbed my shoulders, and I stood to my feet, gripped the two seven-barrel guns in my hands as my other 86 lifted and aimed forward, then I opened fire with all of them. Over a million rounds per second came rushing out from my guns as I turned to clear a path in front of us. My bullets ripped threw everything, completely destroying everything in their path, creating a massive cloud of dust as they cleared away the piles of rubble. “That should do it, we better get going now. Deactivate Nannies and Star core.” I said to Coco, as all my guns vanished from around me, Coco just smiled and held on to me like she was playing a game and I was her car.
I started to run as fast as my legs would carry me, heading straight for the castle in the distance under the cover of the dust cloud I had just made. I did my best to stay inside of the cloud even though there was no one to hide from after the storm of bullets I had just let loose, but I couldn’t be too careful with her on my back.
I do have to admit it’s a bit hard to run two miles, and I am starting to have my doubts that I will even make it. After almost twenty minutes of running as fast as I could, I was at my limit, I was about to pass out. “One minute and there will be a slope. The castle is inside the slope.” Her voice came from behind me as I ran. Finally, there was some good news.
I gave it everything I had left to try and hold out until I got to the slope. Then I saw it, a massive slope in the ground about five hundred feet wide, I had made it just in time. I smiled, laughing and coughing as I ran up to the slope. “I ma…” The sudden realization that this wasn’t a slope, but a cliff hit me as I fell. And just when I thought things were going so good too. But I didn’t have time to mope, I had to do something quickly, I spun in the air, so I was falling straight back, then I pulled the princess off my back and just as I was going to hit the ground I pushed her off as hard as I could. The impact sent pain threw my body, but I managed to catch her just before blacking out.
SLAP “Wake up, you have ten seconds left before the attack begins.” Her voice said. “Attack! What attack are you talking about.” I said as my eyes opened to see something I didn’t expect. The cliff I had just fallen off of wasn’t a cliff. Instead, it was an opening at the top of a dome that held the castle and the city. But I had no time to take in the scenery before I saw what Coco was yelling about. The entire 500-foot-wide hole at the top of the dome had an army completely surrounding it all aiming their weapons in. “They have decided to kill me, and all my followers at the same time by destroying the royal city and burying it here.” Her voice said then she just smiled and fell. I grabbed her just before she hit the ground, then shook her gently to see if she would wake up, but there was nothing, I checked, and she was still breathing, but her breath was very shallow, and her heartbeat was almost at a stop. I had to get her help, but the only way to do that was to finally end this battle. Making sure to leave them with no hope for another attack.
I stood to my feet, took a deep breath, and looked up at them. “Drop your weapons and leave now, you have five seconds before I take things seriously!” My voice echoed throughout the dome, shacking the whole thing. I looked around and spoke again. “Four, three, two, one. Wrong choice!” I closed my eyes and breathe out slowly, cracked my neck and stretched my fingers. “Activate Nannies 100 percent. Activate Star-core 100 percent, Army defense mode, transfer power from regeneration to weapons, and activate overdrive.”
The Nannies computer voice responded to me. “Activating overdrive with regeneration deactivated can cause serious bodily damage, it may also make it hard to use weapons systems. Are you sure you wish to continue?” I clenched my hands in a fist and got ready for the pain. “Do it.” My words were met by instant pain as the computer voice spoke. “Five seconds to overdrive being fully active, you may cancel at any time.” Then it started counting down. Those five seconds felt like five minutes, the pain grew as my eyes burned bright. Lines of light stretched across my body as the energy from the Star-core was channeled into my weapons systems and out of the Nannies that regenerated my body. My fist were pulled open as the lines ran over them, then the pain grew to an unbearable point. I screamed out as the counter hit three. Two more seconds and I could attack, but the army above wasn’t going to wait that long, they were going to fire now.
My scream stopped as the computer hit one. “Overdrive is now active Good luck.” The pain lessened but didn’t stop. However, I could handle it. My hands moved, closing down on my two large eight-barrel handguns that appeared the instant my palms clenched. I aimed straight up in one quick movement, causing my cloak to open. I pulled the trigger on my guns, and bullets came flying from me heading in every direction as my guns appeared all around me already aimed up and firing.
All the weapons that floated around me began to disappear as new ones appeared. Every weapon that I could imagine started to appear and fire as others disappeared. Everything appeared and with them came lasers, rockets, and even grenades flying out from my weapons as they appeared and disappeared. The rim of the dome light up as my weapons bombarded it. I began to run to the center of the dome and away from Coco as their return fire started to get closer to me. I had to make sure that she wasn’t at risk of being hit.
I kept firing for almost a minute as I ran to the center of the dome. Their weapons fire followed me, shooting everything they had at me, but they couldn’t land a single hit. I finally made it to the center of the dome, I stopped and stood in one place while turning firing everything I had at them. Then their first shot made it through and hit my right arm. It wasn’t a direct hit, and I kept firing, if I could hold out a bit longer, I should be able to get them on the run. Then I felt another hit, this time it was a direct hit to my stomach. I felt the blood begin to run down my waste, this was bad another one like that, and it would all be over. “You have sustained a critical hit. Without regeneration you will lose consciousness in seven minutes.” The Nannies computer voice said in my head. “Not useful information, now stop talking unless you have something useful to say.” I said as I staggered forward, trying to find something to lean on.
