Red Revenge slowly walked onto the windy roof. It was familiar. His father had died here. He had hunted down his killer and almost avenged his fathers death had the NYC Police not stopped him.
It was cold, even through his suit. Colder than it should have been for late March.
The mover was sudden. Guys swarmed the roof, pointing armas at Revenge while a single cloaked figure and two smaller, female ones walked out onto the roof.
"Been a while, hasn't it?" the cloaked figure asked as the two females stood at the edge of the building.
Revenge didn't move.
The lights flickered on and everything was illuminated. Revenge counted twenty guys. All in a círculo around him. One figure was dressed as the Grim Reaper. His two female companions were dressed the same.
"Reaper." Revenge growled after a silent moment.
The man laughed wickedly. "I suppose I don't need to introduce my companions?"
The man laughed again. "Friends of yours."
He jerked the robes off of the girls to reveal Sarah and Rose Walker. Both were tied, gagged, and strung loosely to the outside of the building's guard rail.
Revenge started forward, but Reaper held up his scythe. "Stop, or they die."
"Then what'll save you from my wrath?" Revenge demanded.
"Good point." Reaper said, pausing to think. "Let's try again, don't step progressivo, para a frente or one gets it no the other is dropped."
Revenge didn't move, silently accepting the deal.
"Now then. I've long pondered your grudge against me. Really I have. I think about you a lot! You could say I was obsessed."
"No. Kidding." Revenge growled.
Reaper contined to pace, his capuz, capa hiding his details. "My point is who are you? What makes you tick? Who is bold enough to name themselves Red Revenge and try to be a hero in this city? And why does he hunt down little old me?"
Revenge clenched his fists.
"See? You care about me too! how affectionate!"
"I only thing I care about is your dead corpse." Revenge growled again.
Reaper laughed. "Well, to avoid the discussion, I'm cutting straight to the chase. Mask off."
"Or?" Revenge asked.
Reaper laughed and fired a shot at Rose. It went straight through her shoulder and she cringed. She was wearing her usual tank-top and jeans, her white hair waving in the wind.
"You'll shoot an assassin and a street-rat?" Revenge asked.
Reaper's expression went blank. Then he grinned again and laughed. "Almost had me! They're people. You'd save them."
Reaper laughed. "Well let's find out, shall we?"
His foot hit Rose in the stomach and she fell.
"No!" Revenge yelled, running progressivo, para a frente and trying to leap after the girl. Reaper grabbed his cape and jerked him back on the roof, causing Revenge to bang his head.
"Watch it. Metal poles hurt!"
Revenge groaned as Reaper continued to balanço at him with a metal baseball bat. For ten minutos this kept up. Finally Revenge rolled over and groaned. Then he didnt move.
"Get rid of the other girl." Reaper said casually. One of the gangsters shoved Sarah off the edge. She screamed as she fell.
Revenge growled and leapt up, grabbing Reaper's neck. He closed his grip on it and walked over the guard rail and to the corner edge of the roof.
"I'm going to kill you." Revenge growled. "Right after I break you in two."
