Operation: Save Niall
Aaron ran up the stairs and held up a map with a small light on it, "I found his location! This light right here," He pointed to the small blinking light, "That is his location."
We all applauded him in such good work. Liam took a look at the map and showed me. I was in shock, "This is the place I was in when they took me away."
"Then I assume you know the place?"
"A bit, it is still kind of fuzzy since it's been a long time."
"Well, let's get going, oh and leave Ross a note that we left."
We placed a note on the table and we were on our way of saving Niall. The place was as I remembered, full of
vines with large doors that stood in our way between us and Niall.
Aaron barged in through the doors and said we are just going for it. Since we were on our guard we made sure no one was following us as we entered the dark building.
There in the dark room stood a little bit of sunlight over to where I hung. Niall was there. With the vines, there were roses.
Niall looked up and saw us. He didn't seem too happy to see us, "Get out. Sarah is still here."
"We are not leaving without you."
I looked behind us and Sarah was aiming a cross bow towards Lily. I run and when Sarah shot it I was able to save Lily. I got furious and I could feel my blood boil as I let the demon be released. No one stopped me fore I had complete control. I head towards Sarah and she just smiled, "You don't have the guts. Just like last time you will whimper out."
That got me really ticked off and I hit her face with my back hand and she touched her red cheek, "Is that the best you could do?"
I lifted her by the neck and crushed any breath she had left. She looked behind me and smiled, "Bye, bye."
Something shot me straight in the back. I dropped Sarah and fell to the ground. I was in incredible pain and Lily came over to help me. Sarah ran over to Niall. A tall, dark man with a crossbow came out next to her.
"Let me introduce you to everyone, this is Carlos. He is my new toy. He is under my influence. Carlos send out the others. No mercy to anyone."
He nodded his head and sent after them. They were about the same size as Liam but had twice as much muscle. Everyone stood their ground and took out their weapons. A full blown fight has started. It was like ten against three, not including me. Lily stayed with me and said she will protect me.
She concentrated on a group of men and they kneeled to the ground. She let go of her grip on them and they all fell dead.
Sarah got angry and ran after Lily. Liam and Aaron were busy with their own personal battles and so Lily punched Sarah so she went flying. She moved up closer and then Carlos slammed Lily into the ground. I shut my eyes so I couldn't see anymore.
I heard bodies slam into the ground or the walls. I flinched every time there was a loud thud. I was scared. I heard a small voice, "Caden get up. You have to save your friend. Release your power of its entirety."
I struggled to get up and once I did. I felt something trying to get out. My whole body was burning and now I couldn't control myself anymore. I ran after Carlos and he stood his ground. He put his arms in front of him and tries to block me from coming but I broke through it. I grabbed his neck and slammed his head against the wall. Blood spit out of his mouth and his eyes dilated. I put no mercy towards him and crushed his neck completely looking at Sarah even more bloodthirsty. She ran. I was going to go after her until I heard the cries of Liam and Aaron.
I went towards them and knocked the heads of the two enemies together so they both cracked their skulls. Blood spilled even more and covered the stone floors. I grabbed Aaron's sword and threw it towards the last two
slicing them in half.
I returned back to normal and I fell to the ground. Liam went over to me and looked into my eyes. He told Aaron to help him pick me up. After that I heard nothing. I could see everything but hearing is not an option.
I ended up being thrown onto a bed upstairs. I moved my arm up and I could see it completely covered in blood. They tore my clothes so they could get to my wound. I could hear again.
I felt the pain shoot straight into my head and I screamed at the top of my lungs. I heard the door slam meaning Lily left. Aaron told me to hold on, it'll hurt a lot for a bit. I screamed some more and I couldn't help but let my whole voice scream stop.
Liam held me down as Aaron put some liquid that burned like Hell. I pushed my back up so my stomach went up too. My vision got dizzy. I stopped struggling and Liam looked at Aaron. Aaron nodded and tore into my skin. I screamed nonstop as his hands tried to clean any toxin that was left in my body. Once it disappeared, he stitched my wound and spilled some alcohol onto it. It burned.
Aaron looked at me as the pain eased, "You are okay now. Everything will be okay."
I shut my eyes and exhaled. Liam went out and got Lily. She came running to my side and kissed my forehead, "I am so glad you are ok. I couldn't bear hearing you scream like that. I was worried sick."
I looked deeply into her eyes and laughed, "I'm glad I'm an Onyx Claret then. I heal faster than normal."
She giggled a bit and said, "Don't you ever try to act so heroic again."
"I'm sorry, Lily."
"It's okay now, but remember not to do it again, got it?"
She laid her head on my chest, "I can hear your heart beat, it's beating strong."
"Well I hope you can hear his heart beat or there'll be some problems." Aaron started laughing, "Oh yeah, you did make the mission a success though. Sarah left and you killed off the rest."
Niall opened the door and he stayed his distance, "Thank you, Caden." He faced the floor and everyone else left leaving only me and him.
"No problem, Niall. After I received your note, I just had to come save you. You didn't deserve any of that."
"Yeah, I guess so. I was just so scared."
Ross barged into the door coming to me straight away, "You idiot! Going on a mission head on without proper planning is ridiculous!"
"I'm sorry, but it was a success." I looked over to Niall who was leaning against the wall.
"I see. Well congratulations on your mission being a success and I am glad to see that you are doing well. Actually, survived. Well, come downstairs and get some food in your stomach. You too, Niall."
Niall bowed his head and I smiled. When Ross left I slowly stood up. I held my side and Niall came over to help me stand straight. He also helped me down the stairs into the kitchen. On the kitchen table there was a big feast already.
"Where did all this food come from?"
"Old Man Ross."
We both sat down and we ate. We all laughed and smiled and talked about the past. This felt like a true family.
When everyone was done, we all went to bed because of how tired out each of us were.
