"Why does that sound familiar... oh- it's um... Ecclesia?" Soma says. "Order of Ecclesia...?"
"The- what?" Shadow questions.
"N-never mind, just- no!" Soma says. "No one's going to sacrifice themselves like that, there has to be a better way to defeat him!"
"You might not be able to convince him like you did with... Eggman..." Shadow says then starts looking a little feeble. "He didn't exactly... look too... uhh..."
"Are you okay?" Soma asks. "It's the bite, isn't it?"
"I'm just... it's just a headache from everything." Shadow answers.
Willow looked at her, and sighed. “He’s done this many times...” she said, and projected Dominus Hatred from her hand. “Do you see this glyph? This is Dominus Hatred...a piece of Genya’s power to be turned against him...if combined without Dominus anger and Dominus Agony, I will destroy everyone in the same room, including its user.” She explains, meaning she would have to sacrifice her life to stop Genya for good.
"Is... is there a jail where he could be keeping everyone?" Soma asks. "If so, that may be the spot we she head for first and 'remove' part of the wall there."
"Just how many people do you think he has in there, Soma?" Shadow questions. "As far as I know, he only has Maria."
"Yoko disappeared too... and unfortunately, he most likely kidnapped other girls too for whatever sick plan he has." Soma replies. "I mean heck, that one knightess who attacked us could very well be someone under his control too instead of helping him under free will, so... he could have others under his control too."
"What are you saying?" Shadow asks.
"We may have to knock out Maria, Yoko, anyone under his control to get them away safely..." Soma answers.
“I’m not letting you go alone.” He said,not wanting her to go alone. “What he doesn’t know is I have power...and what I [B can] do is bust down a wall...” he said, taking off his shirt, stretching his mechanical arms. “And I am really strong thanks to these.” He said, and he looked at shadow. “I think I might know what castle he took over...Castle Eggman...” he said, and pulled up schematics for the castle, which was now different. “Of course he would be in the throne room, waiting for us to arrive.” He said, and he turned to soma. “That is where we come in, I can provide an entrance and support if need be.” He told Soma and took her hand.
"O-oh, how did you find us so easily?" Soma says. "This... this is from Genya when I stopped him from doing this to Shadow."
[i I don't think I can sleep anytime soon... better go out and find this friggin castle before it's too late!] Soma thinks as she gets up from the bed.
"Speaking of him... I'm going to stop whatever he's trying to do and rescue everyone he has captured." Soma says. "I've got a bad feeling that daytime won't come anytime soon..."
"How are you going to fight him in your current condition?" Shadow asks.
"How are you in yours?" Soma asks back. "Not to mention that you could be infected with whatever you call being a vampire..."
"You're not the one who's fought against many in their life, you're just a kid compared to me." Shadow says.
"Way to bring up the team spirit, Shadow~!" Soma sarcastically says. "You know just the right words to say~!"
"I... I didn't mean-" Shadow tries to say.
"It's fine, it's fine, I understand what you were getting at." Soma interrupts. "I may not have military training but that doesn't mean I'll just continue to cower in fear."
Soma sighs then turns to Raoul.
"I don't want you hurt because of me so please don't follow me!" She says while grabbing his hands. "My life is expendable while everyone one on Mobius is not..."
Raoul finally found them at the Station Square Hotel, which took him far longer than he had hoped, as he didn’t like to take a long time to do anything unless necessary, and when he got to their hotel room, the first thing he did was take Soma’s hand. “I’m glad to see you’re alright!” He said, having been worried about her. “What happened to you?!” He asked, seeing the rips and tears along with the scars from being attacked
Soma was healed [sub [sub [sub [sub I guess]]]], though she was unconscious from the pain she had just endured, and brought to a hotel, along with Shadow [sub [sub [sub [sub I also guess]]]], who was still hurt but refusing to get healed at the moment.
"This is... I can't just sit around here and wait, I have to go out there and find Maria!" Shadow says. "I can't let that bastard get away with this, and I can't let him do this to anyone else either!"
Soma evidently regains consciousness and wakes up, hearing the last part of what Shadow says.
"I'm sorry I failed you Shadow... I let my fear take control over me." Soma says.
"Soma, no, you can't blame yourself for someone like him, especially when you went out of your way to warn Maria in the first place." Shadow says. "He'll pay for what he did, one way or another..."
"Shadow, you're still hurt!" Soma says. "You should- wait... Genya is supposed to be Dracula so, wouldn't that mean you will turn into a vampire?"
"Whaat?" Shadow questions. "You really believe in such nonsense?"
"You're really asking me that?" Soma asks back. "I honestly don't know what to believe anymore but I still think we should take this more seriously!"
"We will if it is a problem, which currently it's not." Shadow responds. "I'll be fine, you just need to worry about yourself."
Willow finally defeated the female knight, making her fall to the ground unconscious, and she placed a hand over her wound, using a revigorating spell to do her best to heal the damage that had been done to the young woman, and soon after she had healed her, she sighed. “We need to get her somewhere safe...it isn’t a good idea to keep her out in the open while Genya is out and about...” she said, and soon the others helped carry her to the nearby city, where they rented a hotel room for the group and made sure to put soma in the bed so she would be comfortable.
Soma starts losing consciousness as she struggles to keep standing. Genya laughs as she falls to ground, barely able to stay awake.
"Sweet dreams, Soma." Genya says as he goes to pick up Maria. "You will certainly need the rest."
Shadow rams into Genya before he grabs Maria, causing him to stumble forwards.
"You son of a- I'll make sure you won't be getting back up this time!" Genya shouts then some kind of magic forms claws on his hands.
"I... will not... let you take Maria!" Shadow says.
Soma musters up her remaining strength to get on one leg.
"You won't have a choice." Genya responds then goes to plunge his claws into Shadow's chest.
Soma manages leap in front of Genya's attack, receiving the potentially fatal blow. Genya pulls his claws out with a darkened look across his face.
"Soma...!" Shadow yells.
"Such a pitiful waste..." Genya says. "Why would you give your life away like that?"
"Really... you're one to talk..." Soma says. "I... I could never let you kill Shadow..."
"Ah, I see... it doesn't matter now." Genya says. "If you want to see her again, you'll find me."
Genya snaps his fingers and both him and Maria disappear.
Lady Bedwena nodded to Genya. “Yes my lord...” she said in a plain, emotionless tone, and charged at the glyph user with almost unnatural speed. But Willow was fast enough to counter eighth Scutum, the Sheild Glyph. “You will not ruin my master’s plan!” The fully armored femal shouted, but was caught by a hammer to the side of her head, sending the knight sprawling away, and she hit a tree. “You insolent brat!” She shouted.
Soma only stood there in horror as she watched.
Maria then faints from the sight of what's happening, falling next to Soma.
Genya winces in pain then let's go of Shadow and throws him to the side.
Shadow holds the side of his neck as his mind tries to catch up with what just happened.
"Take care of that one!" Genya commanded the knight while pointing at Willow. "I have something more important to do..."
Genya walks over to Maria and Soma quickly moves in the way, shaking uncontrollably from fear.
"I-I won't let you ta-ke her away!" Soma says. "I-I don't care w-what you do to m-me!"
Genya just stands there, staring at her. He then smiles a little deviously after a couple seconds.
"One way or another, you'll be coming to my home." He says. "The question is... will it be to save Maria, or to be in her stead?"
Soma's fear keeps her from responding.
"Too scared to answer, hm?" Genya asks. "Well then... perhaps this will ease your mind for a bit."
He then pulls out a handful of some kind of powder from his pocket and blows it into Soma's face.
The hedgehog attempted to throw a knife at the bat, taking a significant chunk out of his wing, but was met with a foot to her chest, sending her sprawling away into a tree, knocking her breath out and knocking her out cold. At the same time. But they were surprised when anothe rknight appeared, but she stood and watched, as if waiting for orders.
Soma scrambles to catch Maria before she lands. She catches her and lets her down.
"You think I care?" Genya says with a pained voice after landing on his feet. "This world will soon be forever covered in night!"
"I think you misunderstand the situation you're in." Shadow says as he slowly walks over to Genya, seeming ready to punch him in the face. "No one will be taking over the world, no one will be winning in their villainy, and NO ONE will be bringing harm to Maria!"
"Ah... but you see... you won't have a say in it!" Genya says then lunges at Shadow, biting him in his neck.
"SHADOW!" Maria and Soma scream.
"GRAH- GET THE HELL OFF ME!!" Shadow yells as he tries to shove Genya off.
“Amelia Ignis!” the female hedgehog shouted, and the vampire bat immediately got hit in the back with a blast of fire, singing his wings, and forcing him to let go of Maria. “You already claimed enough lives, I will not allow you to claim more!” She shouted, and stood by Shadow, her markings glowing in the dim light of the forest. “You are making a bad mistake by attacking her, as everyone will come after you.” She said
Soma ran back towards the direction she saw Maria go. She ends up running through a forest then finding Maria who appears to have gotten a little lost.
"Huh- Soma, surprising to see you so soon..." Maria says. "Good timing too, since I ended up losing the others in this forest."
"Hah... well, at least you're safe!" Soma says. "I was worried about you, that's why I'm here."
"Did your Maria-in-danger senses go off or something?" Maria asks.
"No- er, sorta I guess, but there's more to it then that!" Soma answers. "There's a vampire bat Dracula-like person trying to kidnap females!"
"...What?" Maria questions.
"He was trying to get me to come to his castle and tried some kind of power to convince me, which didn't work!" Soma says. "And now I can't find Yoko anywhere so I cam straight here, worried he may have gotten to you already!"
"There you are Maria!" Shadow says as he comes walking through some brush. "I was worried I would have lost you for a while..."
"Well Soma, you don't need to worry anymore since now I won't be lost anymore." Maria states.
"Wait... okay, we can only have so many ex machinas in one day, so how did you exactly find us the moment I'm here, Shadow?" Soma questions.
"Your voices, I followed them to here- why are suddenly suspicious of me?" Now Suspicious Shadow asks back.
"Because... let me ask one more question then." Soma says. "What were Maria's last words to you before you escaped onto the planet below?"
"Soma, why are you asking that?" Maria says.
"Just- sh!" Soma replies. "What were they, Shadow?"
"I don't have time to play your silly games right now Soma." Suspicious Shadow says. "I need to get Maria safely home now since it's late-"
"SHADOW, it's a very simple question to answers because SHADOW would know the answer!" Soma interrupts. "The real SHADOW would know just exactly how important those words were to him!"
"Okay, now you're just yelling." Suspicious Shadow says. "Again, I don't have time for this-"
"SHADOW, you wouldn't happen to be taking Maria to a castle, would you?!" Soma questions. "I don't think I've ever seen a castle before now that I think about!"
"Soma, you're acting crazy now." Maria says. "How would-"
"Ah, finally, thanks to repeatedly yelling my name, I was able to-" The real Shadow says as he walks over from a clearing towards them then stops the moment he sees the other Shadow. "...This takes being a faker to a whole new level."
"Wha- who- huh?!" Maria exclaims confusedly as she looks between the two.
"AHA, I KNEW IT!!" Soma yells. "That fake Shadow there is really-!"
"Someone who still doesn't have time for this." Fake Shadow interjects then grabs Maria's arm. "I wasn't lying when I said that I need to get her home."
His illusion of his disappears as he turns back into Genya.
"I don't care what part was the truth, you let go of her!" Shadow shouts as he suddenly appears behind them.
"The supposed Ultimate Lifeform isn't the only one with these tricks!" Genya says then disappears with Maria and reappears above everyone. "If you want to make sure your friend stays safe, then maybe you should come with me, Soma?"
