Note: Branching off
from Legacy of Blood – Trilogy. Which means no Twisted Pair, no Rose, no
bowling ball size of qi that sends Twisted Pair to Mo Kai. This is a few
days after the fight.
The waterfall some
distance away from the Shotoken Dojo, Japan
The setting sun of this evening’s sky turned the clouds into a sea of blood. The crimson fire had had set the sky ablaze. No wind, no sound of animals, save for two figures heading towards the falls there are no signs of other life. The air was heavy with the aura of death and evil, even the vegetation surrounding the waterfall seems to be either dying or decaying.
The waterfall which
was once a monument of beauty in motion had stopped its water from thundering
down, only puddles of water with struggling aquatic life remain. A pair
of fierce red glow glimmer from the darkness of the cave. Watching the
two women, it waits and watches on.
“Say again?” Yuri
asked. Making sure that they were both a comfortable distance away from
the creature within the cave.
“I thought he could
push back his dark side like I did mine and return to dominate the body.
But he not only tried to push it back, he wanted to expel it.” ChunLi continued
COME OUT COME OUT!!!! We’re gonna help you! I promise not to bop you too
hard!!!” Yuri shouted trying to draw Ryu out.
The creature within the cave kept quiet, the voice of the little loud one was getting to his nerves. He couldn’t help but feel that there was something familiar about the duo. He couldn’t remember what it was. But it didn’t matter, he sensed that this duo has what it takes to amuse him. But something about the older woman bothered him majorly. Like a strange voice from a blurry memory that was trying to come to light. He shook it off as the headache starts once more.
Head hurts…….Can’t think…..arrrgghhhh……why?….. > he thought to himself
as he shook his head once more.
“Ryu….” ChunLi whispered,
her heart fill with pain for the tortured soul within the cave. How she
wished she could be by his side to comfort him, to help ease his pain.
It breaks her heart to hear him in pain and be unable to anything at all.
“No….By the time
they find the way to help him, he would have cause even more damage. I
want to keep him here….. Who knows what might go wrong.”
Footsteps approaching strengthened the intensity of his pain. Memories flashing in and out of his mind without order, showing him everything and nothing that would or would not be a help to him. The face of a woman recurred with increasing frequency. He couldn’t understand why for all he wanted was to rid himself of this pain!
Yet a part of him
wanted to unravel this mystery. Another part of him just wants nothing
to do with it. The more he try to distance himself from what he saw, the
more he wants to know. This double-edged sword of his own existence is
more likely to get him killed if anything. Ryu slapped away the hamds that
were trying to help him up.
“RRRAAAAAARRRGHHHHH!!!!!!” Ryu roared as the pain drove him to insanity and beyond. As his bloodshot eyes shot open the first thing he saw was the face of the same woman in his memories in living flesh. The floodgates of Ryu memories finally broke free of his suppression. Hitting him with everything at once.
Is it….so bad…..rrrr…..that it returns in the flesh…When will the hurting
stop……. . >
“Ryu…It’s me…” ChunLi
said, kneeling down by his side.
“DIE!!! DIE!!! DIE!!!!” Punching ChunLi repeatedly in the stomach with his free right hand. He couldn’t care about the little one, he believes that when this one dies, his pain will stop!
“LI JIE!!!” Yuri
shouted as she charges her qi.
Ryu couldn’t feel the pain of his flesh for the pain of the mind was more was more intense. Enrage he turned around slamming ChunLi against Yuri.
“Yuri…. Please don’t….
hurt him!” ChunLi pleaded through choked breath.
The little one don’t matter to him much, but he had to go through her to get to that woman. He kept forcing his way towards ChunLi, going against Yuri’s attacks. He leapt over Yuri’s fireball. Ramming his elbow into her ribs and followed up with a Shoryuken he sent the young girl flying. He charged his qi, timing the girl’s landing. Ryu let loose a Shinku Hadoken that sent Yuri flying into towards to the back of the cave. Skin tore and flesh bleeds as she was dragged by the impact across the stone floor.
Back to the business at hand. He reached for ChunLi, swatting away her attacks till she tires.
“Ryu!!! It’s me!
Ryu! Let me help you!!!” she called out to him.
“Ryu! Don’t you remember
me? I don’t want to hurt you” ChunLi retreated and charged her qi.
Neither was spared
from the impact of the other’s attack, as the concentration of qi exploded
forcefully throwing them apart. Ryu hit the wall on his head, he slumped
down to the ground, unmoving.
Yuri regained her
strength and limped over to ChunLi. She sat beside the older woman, supporting
It seem like eternity
when his eyelids start to open slowly. His familiar gentle brown eyes looking
at her. A weak sheepish smile on his face. It seems that the moment of
insanity was finally over, ChunLi smiled back with relief.
And then as soon as sanity seem to appear it was gone as quickly. The rage filled eyes return once more. A crazed look upon his face as Ryu shoved ChunLi aside roughly.
“DIE!!!!!” he screamed as he leapt into the air and towards ChunLi
Yuri acted immediately,
she jumped in front of ChunLi
“HA!! I won! Serves
you right for breaking my time attack record!” ChunLi tossed a pillow at
She puts down the Neopocket and looked over Ryu’s shoulder. Ryu sat on the floor leaning against the bed. A slight frown on his face, a Neopocket in his hands, it was connected to ChunLi’s Neopocket via link cable.
“Hey! No foreign objects!!” Ryu ignored her, dragging her down to the floor as she continued hitting him with the pillow.
A loud cry emitted from Kage’s cradle. Clearly he’s upset with the fact
that his parents had refused him the sleep that he craved.
“Aiyah. See what
you’ve done. Now you woke them both. Daddy’s been a really bad boy.” ChunLi
cooed, hitting Ryu with the pillow again.
Note: This story was strongly influence by the SNK vs Capcom (Neo Pocket)fight of Yuri and ChunLi vs Evil Ryu. I was playing the game when I wrote this. The Olympic mode had sort of created a fued between the two main chars I used in trying to break each other's record. I know that out there there be people who can do better then my scores but remember the scroes here are only relevant to this fic.
So for the whole
time its always being Ryu trying to break ChunLi's record and vice versa.
