The Return Chapter 25
By Firstborn Dragon
Zed awoke. He looked around, but once again his surroundings had changed. But this time, he knew them. "Lauras house "
"So, youre awake."
Zed sat up. "Laura! What are you doing here? Dont you know its dangerous?"
Laura walked towards Zed, then stopped. "Im surprised you care, demon!"
Zed sat back in shock at the hatred and distaste with which Laura said that. "Laura, what do you mean?"
"What do I mean? WHAT DO I MEAN!!! You never told me you were a murder! A demon! Demons care about nothing but themselves! I dont know what you want, but you will not get away with it!"
"Laura I, I know Im a demon. But I love you. Arent I allowed to?"
"Demons arent supposed to care! Or love! I dont know what you want, but youll get nothing from me!"
"Laura, why dont you trust me?"
"Why dont I trust you? Youre a demon." She looked up at Zed. Her eyes, or what were her eyes, were glowing. "Die monster! Or will you kill me?"
Zed shook his head. "Id never do anything to harm you. Laura, please "
"Too bad For you!"
A giant fireball raced towards Zed. One he couldnt hope to survive
Boomerang awoke. "Where am I?" He looked around. But he couldnt see far because of the people. They surrounded him on all sides. He was tied to a post in the middle of a courtyard. Then, a familiar face came out from the crowd. "Cecilia?"
Cecilia ignored Boomerang. "This creature has been the cause of much death and destruction in out world. For this, there is only one acceptable course of action. Death."
The crowd cheered. Zed looked around for an escape. Any escape. "Im sorry! Ive changed! Isnt a person allowed to change?"
One of the people in the crowd heard. "People? Yes! But not your kind! Youre monsters, who need to be destroyed!"
Others in the crowd began to yell as well.
"Destroy the monster."
Stones, sticks, mud, and other garbage was thrown at Boomerang. "Why are you doing this to me? I came to help you!"
But the mocking of the crowd drowned him out. Then a clearing through the crowd formed, and Jack walked down it. Cecilia saw this. "Executioner, do your duty!"
"With pleasure." Jack was caring Slayer.
Boomerang became desperate. "No please! Anything! Ill do anything. Just please, dont kill me!"
But Jack just smiled. And the sword descended
Lucid awoke. She knew where she was. "This used to be my room. Why am I here?"
"To see what youve caused!"
Lucid turned around. Ge Ramtos stood there. "What do you mean?"
Ge Ramtos laughed. "You left much behind. Including your duty. Look at what happened because you failed."
Ge Ramtos began to show Lucid images. Of war, death, destruction, and chaos. "You being on the planet, even in beast form, caused an imbalance in the powers. So many dead! Because of you!"
Lucid shook her head. "No! No, that cant be true. I couldnt have caused all this, could I have?"
"You could, and you did. What is your duty?"
"I I I dont know. What is it?"
Ge Ramtos laughed. "You must kill the one who corrupted you! The one who removed you from your duty. Or would you have me do it?"
"Would you kill me then?" Lucid looked up at her tormentor. "I did it to my self. I loved Boomerang, and chose to follow him. He had no say over my actions!"
"So be it! Youve named your destroyer. He shall die!"
"No! Kill me! Leave him out of this! He has nothing to do with this! I chose it all."
Boomerang suddenly appeared in the room. Ge Ramtos began to chant. Boomerang was incapable of moving. A dark mist began to advance on Boomerang.
"Nooooo!" Lucid threw herself in front of Boomerang. And the mist engulfed her
