The Title of Man
Chapter Two: Here comes the Hunter
“This place is strange.” Mako thought as he finally stepped foot in
Paragon City. His eyes showed the bewilderment of his surroundings.
He was taken back at the site of so many heroes; he felt a little
over whelmed. For him this is the first time he has set foot in such
Founder’s Falls, some hours later.
“Watch out, Rey!”
Big PR screamed as he and Rey Tormentor battled a fierce group of
“Got it, Big,” Rey replied.
Rey turned and was tackled by a
Crey Tank. He held down Rey’s arms but Rey was able to throw some
electricity in his eyes and get up from under the tank. Big PR bum
rushed the tank and forced the tank to fly and hit the wall of the
Icon building. Rey quickly throws an electrical fence around the villain,
holding him while Big PR pummeled him with blow after blow. When the
tank fell to his knees a Paragon Protector came around along with
five more Crey minions.
“Damn! What the hell they do call for back
up or somethin’?” Rey said as the minion shot his pistol at him.
wouldn’t doubt it, bro,” replied Big PR
The group had surrounded the
heroes and charged in all at once. Big PR did a whirling jump in the
air and came down with such force that it weakened all the foes around
him. That move caused the attention of all of the Creys to go on Big
PR. They all piled on the hero throwing punch after punch. Most of
the hits didn’t do much damage thanks to Big PR’s invulnerability
but some of the hits were good enough to get through.
“Are you ok,
“Ya…no problem what so ever.”
As he had finished his sentence
Big PR was blind-sided by three Crey minions, which forced him through
a fence that was located right behind them. When Big PR and the minions
crashed through the fence Rey pulled out his gun and took out the
rest of the enemies that were left.
Rey could hear that Big PR was
going at a much faster speed then he would normally when fighting
just three minions. “You okay, Big?”
“Rikti and lots of them!”
rushed his way to the ledge and when he did a blast from a Rikti gun
hit him in the face. His helmet was unscaved but the force knocked
him off of his feet and back a few feet. Rey nipped up and jumped
down where Big PR was located. They were both out numbered by each
of the group they were fighting. It was evident that this attack was
not as random as they thought, it was clear that the Crey had planned
this ambush; maybe not with the Rikti involved, but it was still planned.
“Hold on, Cris, I’ll help” Rey said to Big PR.
Rey shot a bomb out
of his gun. The explosion caused many of the enemies to fly back and
“This ain’t good, Rey, there is like twenty of them around h…arrrgh!”
Big PR yelled in pain as once of the Crey operatives blasted him with
some type of psichonic attack. The attack stopped Big PR dead in his
tracks. Rey looked at the operative and noticed that he was much more
different. He carried himself differently from the others and he wore
a full mask. Plus the attack wasn’t really from him but from a purple
item that he held in his hand.
“Kumdarey,” the operative said under
“What did you say?” Rey questioned. But before Rey could
have done any thing he was blind sided with numerous amounts of hits
by both the Rikti and the Crey.
Rey was slammed to the ground and
fell unconscious. Rey regained his consciousness and found himself
in the hospital. The room was dark and the only light that illuminated
it was the lamp from the side of the hospital bed. It was a welcomed
site to him until he saw a dark figure standing above him, the light
of the lamp only showing the scar ridden forearm and leg of the figure.
“Kumdarey, your demise has come, you have not finished your journey,
you are evil and the Hunter has come to release your soul!” the Hunter
said as he leaned into the light to show his face.
“Mako? I re…remember
you, I remember all of what happened.” Rey said in his native tong.
“Yes chosen one. It is I, Mako. I have become a Hunter.”
voice of the shaman thundered in the room, forcing the Hunter to shutter
in fear. “I have told you that releasing his soul was the last option.”
“But, Kuna, men have told me of his wrongful deeds and his sinful…”
“Silence you foul. Who are these men? They do not belong to our tribe.
They can not be trusted!”
“Kuna, I don’t think that they are evil.”
“It doesn’t matter young Hunter. They do not get to decide. Besides
you have not given him the chance to finish his mission. You know
that people of evil hearts cannot complete this task no matter what.
Now, leave him be. And, I don’t want you to talk to these ‘Men’ you
need to focus on your duty and not get persuaded by others while in
a strange land.”
Kuna’s presence was lifted from the
room and it was just Rey and Mako once again.
“You are lucky, Kumdarey,
if it wasn’t for Kuna you will be dead right now.”
“…What ever, Mako,
I know that you don’t like me. You were always jealous of me.”
up you fool! Don’t make it easier for me to dispose of you when the
In a blink of an eye, Mako was gone. And slowly Kuna’s
presence was felt in the room once more.
“Kumdarey, I know how Mako
feels toward you, if I had a choice I would have sent another Hunter,
but he was the only one left, since the others were off on their own
missions. You don’t have to fear, I will be watching over you. I will
make sure he doesn’t sabotage your journey.”
“Thank you, Kuna.”
will continue your journey tomorrow, you cannot say good bye to your
friends you must leave silently.”
“Okay, Kuna I understand.”
