(WOOOOOOOOOO *flips around* chapter four for you peoples hurray)
I awoke to loud crashes and bangs. I jolted upright, Hate groggily awakening with me.
"What are you guys doing?" I hissed.
"Jimmy's attempting to make pancakes without a stove." said Lucas sarcastically.
"SHADDUP, JIMMY CAN DO IT!" yelled Jimmy, mixing around a mess of fruits, flour, milk, pancake mix, and butter.
"Bro, seriously, you're going to need a stove." said Max.
"... Aw." whimpered Jimmy.
I stared, completely confused about what just happened. I sniffed around, wanting raw meat or something like that instead. They argued over pancakes, while I found meat that was surprisingly keep at a perfect room temperature. I didn't think about it too much, since I was starved. I quickly devoured whatever it was, not minding blood running down my chin as I did.
"Easy, child. You might choke on that." said Hate.
"I don't care." I hissed.
"Nobody's taking it, just enjoy it."
I devoured the rest of it, looking down at my white, now bloody gown I usually wore from the facility. But now I hated it. I wanted new cloths, cloths I could actually move in. I looked around the place by myself, feeling like being alone for now. I found a black thing similar to what Lucas wore, so I took it along with some things similar to what Max and Lucas wore on their legs. I threw my gown off and the garments on, my tail cutting a hole into the things on my legs. I walked back to the group, Max and Lucas eating somebody's arms, Jimmy eating the the pancake batter mess.
"You're seriously eating that?" I asked the small creature.
"It GOOD!" he chirped.
"Sure." I said, sitting on my blanket to stare at the wall.
"Where do you come from, Cheryl?" asked Max.
"... I don't know." I said honestly, never really knowing where the facility was.
"Oh, well, that's okay." shrugged Max.
"You guys from here?" I asked.
"Yea!" cheered Jimmy.
"Guys, let's get moving." said Lucas, getting up.
"We bring blankets?" asked Jimmy.
"They'll only slow us down." said Lucas, heading for the front.
Jimmy took my hand again, walking next to me as we headed out of the store and into the city once again. We were currently walking down a long, grey thing again, but were stopped once we heard a roar from behind. I spun around, faced with a large creature charging at me.
"Wha- I never finished, for I was slammed into a wall.
"FRIEND!" screamed Jimmy, rushing over.
He jumped onto the creature's head, stabbing his eye with long nails. The creature roared, hitting at Jimmy and letting me go. he already wasn't well, so I screamed when it violently threw him. Lucas let out a horrible scream, jumping onto the thing's face and burying his wicked talons into him. It crushed him with its larger arm, making him yelp. max used his long tongue to grab the thing's huge arm, preventing him from crushing Lucas again. It yanked, ripping Max's tongue out with a spray of blood. I screamed, shocked at how hurt everyone is. My mouth opened again as I stood,
'DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STOP ME?!" roared Hate, purple tendrils from my arm creeping up and over me until I was locked inside, but I could see this time.
I couldn't feel anything, so I just watched from 'inside'. Hate had us charge, right arm forming a blade made of... Well... Hate. He slashed the creature's large chest, making him stumble back as he roared. Hate hissed, twisting the creature's smaller arm with a sickening crack. He roared, large arm grabbing his now broken smaller arm in pain. He finished the job by having large, blade-like tendrils exploding from his chest and stabbing into the creature, crunches and squishes sounding as he slowly tore it in half. He literally walked THROUGH the creature once it was in half, laughing. hate's laughter slowly subsided as he trickled back, returning to his original place on my right arm. Lucas, Jimmy, and max all stared at me, clearly terrified. I gasped for breath, the whole experience feeling and being so weird. I gripped Hate on my arm with my left Xeno one, trying to calm down.
"What in the name of god was that?!" asked Lucas, terrified.
"My 'friend'." I said, finally calming.
"Look, let's just forget it and keep moving." said Lucas, moving ahead.
"Are you guys alright?" I asked, helping Jimmy and Max up.
"Cheryl scared Jimmy, but that's okay! Still friends!" chirped Jimmy, hugging my legs.
"Pretty cool 'friend' you got there." said Max.
"Thanks, I guess." I said.
We continued ahead until we got to a more industrial part of the city, more buildings and stores here. I stared around, neon signs flickering and more 'people' around. I looked, all around were creatures that looked like Jimmy, Max, and Lucas. And some that looked like the creature Hate killed before. Some were completely different, new and alien in their own unique ways. Jimmy tugged me forwards, getting me to follow him as we walked further in. Suddenly, gunshots. I gaped when I saw people up ahead. One female, and three males. I grabbed the three of my friends, yanking them into a large building once I saw what the did to that other creature that looked similar to Jimmy. I hid us in a room in the back, panting.
"What are you doing?" asked Lucas.
"Shut UP." I growled, my voice mixing with Hate's a bit.
I waited until I couldn't smell them anymore, letting everyone get out.
"I didn't want them shooting your brains out, okay?" I hissed.
"I could of taken them all down, easy." growled Lucas.
"I bet that's what the other guy thought before a bullet flew through his mouth." I snarled.
"Um, let's keep going. It won't do us any good if we stay here." said max.
And so on we went.
