< >: Thoughts
Geese Howard nodded as the technicians made the final adjustments
to the dimensional projector. He had waited a long time for this day
and the crime lord was not going to let anyone stop him now. The
KB-1000's were ready to carry out their programmed directives, along
with the army of Boomers that would follow them. And as an added
measure, Geese had decided to bring in some reinforcements to
ensure that no one would be able to interfere with his plans. After
hearing news of the Knight Sabers reappearance, plus some sightings
of other people with strange powers, Geese had called in a few
people to deal with these newcomers.
The dimensional gateway opened up and a minute later, several
figures emerged from the glowing portal.
Sylia Stingray's penthouse apartment...
"Well, this is it people. Nene and Mackie have just received word
that Geese is planning on making his move tomorrow at noon." Sylia
said as she addressed her Knight Sabers and the group from Terry's
"Hmpf! Sounds just like Geese." Terry growled.
Andy nodded as well. "Tomorrow is the anniversary of when that
bastard murdered our father!"
"So what's the plan?" Priss asked as she nudged closer to Terry on
the sofa they were seated on. Sitting nearby, Mai smiled a bit as she
noted that the tough girl of the Knight Sabers was taking her advice.
Over the past few days, Terry and Priss had become inseparable as
the Lone Wolf had continued training her in hand-to-hand combat.
The bouncy ninja girl, her husband and Joe Higashi were glad to see
that Terry was actually smiling in earnest for a change and they
hoped that the relationship would blossom even further after this
entire ordeal was over.
Sylia then gestured to an image which showed the group a schematic
of Geese's main base of operations, the Genom arsenal and research
facilities. "According to what Nene and Mackie have told me from
their hacking into Genom's database, Geese plans to use those new-
type Boomers and several dozen others to attack various military
installations around the globe, using that dimensional transporter of
his. While the main armed forces of the world are distracted, he
intends to commandeer a satellite tracking station in Japan and use
the OMS chip to take control of all of the world's Boomers, as well
as the orbiting particle cannon satellites. At noon, the satellites will
be in the ideal orbital positions for the OMS chip to take full effect.
The governments of the world will find themselves fighting not only
Genom's Boomers, but their own Boomers and those satellites as
well. And considering how much power we're talking about, it doesn't
take a genius to realize what will be the end results. And remember,
Geese is absolutely ruthless and he wouldn't care how many
innocents are slaughtered in the ensuing conflict. Our only option...
is a direct assault on Genom. We have to stop him from transporting
those KB-1000 Boomers. Fortunately, most of the employees will
not be present tomorrow, since it is a Sunday, so we won't have to
worry too much about civilian casualties. We must also stop him
from using that OMS chip and taking control of all the world's
Boomers and those particle cannons. With that kind of firepower, he
could force both our world and yours to their knees."
"Which means, that we would have to fight our way through Genom's
defenses and whatever army Geese has waiting for us." Linna said.
"We're talking about a whole lot of Boomers." Nene said.
"Hey, no sweat!" Joe said with confidence. "If the Boomers we fought
before are all that Genom has to throw at us, then this should be a
piece of cake!" He then gave Linna a wink. "After we're finished with
the Boomer bashing, how's about you and me have a bit of a bash
Linna smiled a little bit at the very forward Joe. Here was one guy
who knew how to have fun. Kyo already had a girlfriend, Kim was
married and she couldn't get near Ryo because of King.
"Don't be so sure about that Joe." Terry warned as he held Priss a bit
tighter. "The Boomers that Geese has at his disposal are far more
powerful than the ones you fought when you got here. It took almost
everything I had to defeat the Krauser Boomer prototype, and Geese
has several advanced models. He's also got access to some high-grade
weaponry as well as access to all his resources and men on OUR
Kyo concurred with Terry. "He is speaking the truth. It would be best
not to underestimate your opponent."
Sylia nodded in agreement. "A very good assessment of the situation,
Terry. The Boomers that all of you fought were general military
models, such as the BU-55Cs and the Doberman Space Boomers."
The monitor then flashed the schematics of both types before
showing them pictures of several other models. "Genom has also
developed BU-99X Super-Boomers, BU-33Cs, Hyper-Boomers and
enough military hardware than most third and second-world
countries. The main building is also staffed with trained security
personnel and God only knows what else."
"Whoa." Joe breathed out.
"It looks like it's going to be a drag-out fight to the finish." Ryo
"But it's a fight that we have to win if any of us want to get back
home." Terry said. "The only way we can get back to our Earth is to
use Geese's dimensional gateway."
When Terry said these words, Priss suddenly stiffened a bit. She had
been so happy being with Terry, that she never even considered the
possibility that he might leave her to return to his world. She knew
that Geese must be stopped, but that might mean that she would have
to sacrifice her chance at true happiness. She wasn't certain that she
was willing to give him up, if it came down to the choice of saving
the world or her second chance at love. She had given up all other
chances she had with Leon, pinning her hopes and dreams on the
man sitting beside her. However, this was something that needed to
be done. She took a deep breath and steeled herself for the
possibility of losing Terry, though she knew that her heart would
break if he was to disappear from her life. She mentally told herself
that it would all work out in the end, though that tiny bit of doubt
remained within her.
"We will win!" Kim said with firm resolve.
Nene nodded as she added to the discussion. "The new Hardsuits
have enough firepower to take on those Krauser Boomers and with
our new friends helping us, we can't lose! Say, why don't I contact the
"No!" Sylia interjected. "I won't have any innocent people put in
danger. The AD Police wouldn't stand a chance against the hundreds
of Boomers at Genom, let alone one of those KB-1000s. This is
strictly Knight Saber business!" She then turned to her guests. "I can't
force you all to join us in this venture and..."
Andy quickly cut in. "Genom may be your enemy, but Geese is ours.
You don't have to ask us to help you fight him. Like Terry said, his
device is our only means of getting back home and besides, Terry and
I have a big score to settle with that bastard... once and for all!"
Ryo also raised his hand. "Geese was also responsible for causing
grief to my family as well. One of his right-hand men, Mr. Big, had
kidnapped Yuri and forced our father to commit several crimes. We
would be honored to fight alongside you."
"You bet!" Yuri affirmed.
"Count me in!" Robert added.
Kim raised a fist and shook it. "I would be honored to fight with you
as well! The evil of Geese Howard must be crushed!"
"You don't think I'm going to let you guys hog all the glory, do you?
I'm in!" Joe said.
King and Kyo also voted to join in the fight, making it unanimous.
Sylia took a deep breath and nodded. "Very well, it's all agreed. In
the past, the Knight Sabers have been the counterbalance to Genom's
activities, and we've always tried not to totally destroy it, because of
the many legitimate businesses it had and all the innocent employees
who worked there. However, with Quincy gone, and Geese planning
to use the OMS chip, we have no choice. Genom must fall. All of the
final preparations will be completed by tonight, so we must all get
some rest for tomorrow. We must be ready to strike at dawn."
Gees smiled as he addressed the people he had transported from his
"I have brought you here for some very important business."
"Sure thing, boss." Mr. Big said as he brandished his two battle
"What's it all about?" Raiden said as he cracked his knuckles. The
huge wrestler towered over all those present and was standing beside
Geese gestured to a monitor which began depicting images of the
Bogard Brothers, Joe Higashi, Mai Shiranui-Bogard, the Sakazaki
siblings and Robert Garcia. "These recordings were taken a few days
ago when several Boomers went on a rampage. Anyone look
Billy nodded as his eyes narrowed at the images of Andy and Terry.
"So Terry Bogard survived after the Genom Tower was destroyed.
Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi are with him now?"
"That's right Billy. I thought that might get your interest."
"It does indeed, sir. I have a score to settle with that little brother of
his." Billy still retained bad memories of his last fight with the silver-
"Just leave that Joe Higashi to me." Raiden said. "I've got my own
score to settle with him."
Mr. Big smiled as he saw Ryo, Yuri and Robert. He eagerly
brandished his two batons together. "Ah yes, the Sakazaki family and
Robert Garcia. Leave them to me. I can't wait to see Takuma's face
when I send him the head of his son. His daughter will also make a
Beside him, another figure stood with a very cold look in his eyes.
He was a darkly handsome man with red hair and wore a jacket with a
crescent moon symbol on the back. He glanced at the images and
gave a disdainful snort. "Hmpf! I am not interested in your vendettas
against the Bogards or the Sakazakis. Why did you bring me here? I
have no time to bother with these... gnats."
Geese smirked as he then showed Iori Yagami another image. "I have
done a lot of background research on you, Iori Yagami. I know all
about your blood feud with the Kusanagi clan. I believe that this
WILL interest you."
Iori's eyes widened as he saw the image of the reason for his very
existence. "Kyo Kusanagi? He is here?!"
"I THOUGHT that might get your attention." The crime boss said
with a smug grin. "Are you interested now?"
"I will CRUSH HIM!" Iori declared as his eyes glowed a blood-red
and his battle aura began to rise. "Where is he?"
Geese held up a hand and replied. "Have a little patience, Iori
Yagami. You will not have to go look for him. HE shall come to
you." The King of Southtown walked back toward the monitor and
turned to face his allies. "I did not expect more of Bogard's friends
and allies to be transported to this world, though I suspect it was
accidental, due to the dimensional gateway's instability at the time.
However, this will not change my plans. I rule Southtown, but I've
often thought... why limit myself to one town? With the resources of
Genom at my disposal, I now can expand my ambitions to a global
scale. Two gobal scales in fact. By tomorrow, I shall be the master of
"But Geese, why wait until tomorrow? Why not just start now?" Mr.
Geese gave his subordinate a snort of disgust. "That's the problem
with you. You're too impatient, which makes you prone to rash and
foolhardy decisions. That is what caused you to be defeated by the
Sakazaki family. At precisely noon tomorrow, the orbiting satellites
above us will be in the perfect position for the OMS chip to take
control of them at FULL capacity! Once that occurs, nothing will be
able to interfere with the chip's transmissions as I take control of
every Boomer on this planet, as well as the particle cannons. Once
this world is subjugated, I shall use the dimensional projector to
invade and conquer our own Earth as well! And... I find it very poetic
that the day I take control would be on the same day and time that I
destroyed Jeff Bogard!"
Geese went into a fit of maniacal laughter as the final preparations
were being made in Genom.
Dr. Ravens Garage, a couple of hours before dawn...
Terry had awoken early and had decided to make his own
preparations for the coming battle. He then began going through his
daily katas to help clear his mind. It wasn't long before he sensed
another presence and glanced over his shoulder. He saw that Priss
was standing near the doorway to the training room and was dressed
in her Soft Suit.
"I guess I'm not the only one who couldn't sleep." Terry said as he
went into a relaxed pose.
Priss nodded as she walked up to him. "Sylia had told me and the
others to come in early to make the final adjustments to our
Hardsuits. They're fully-powered and armed and Mackie has the truck
all warmed up and stocked. I guess the Knight Sabers are as ready as
we'll ever be. It's kind of funny actually. I joined up with the Knight
Sabers to get revenge against those Boomers and to destroy Genom.
Sylia always said that we're not here to destroy it, but to keep it in
check. Now, I've gotten my wish and we have no choice BUT to wipe
it out. I've waited so long for this day, and now that it's here, I feel
"Empty? Let down? Unsatisfied?" Terry finished for her. When Priss
nodded, the Lone Wolf gave her a sympathetic smile. "I know how it
feels when you have the taste for revenge and you discover that you
start craving for more. Sooner or later, you end up being the main
course on someone else's feast. It's an endless cycle. When Geese
murdered my father, I felt an intense rage and wanted nothing more
than to make him pay for what he did. When he later killed Lily and
then had one of his cronies mortally wound Master Tung, I wanted to
rip out his heart and feed it to him! And I had the chance to kill him
when I defeated him. But I let him go, thinking that his humiliating
defeat was enough. If I had finished him off when I had the chance,
then he wouldn't be so dangerous now!"
"You couldn't have predicted that all this would have happened,
Terry. That was all in the past and can't be undone. Right now, we
have to deal with Geese in the present." Priss found herself surprised
at saying these words. Usually, she would have agreed with the
notion of killing Geese when the opportunity was there. Apparently,
being with Terry had toned down her bloodlust and she was now
thinking of things other than her anger and need for revenge.
Terry slowly nodded as he resumed his ready stance. "I guess you're
right. Shouldn't you be getting some rest? It's still going to be awhile
before we attack Genom, so why don't you go get some sleep?"
Priss shook her head as she stood in front of him and assumed a
ready stance. "I'm too tense to get back to sleep. Besides, I was kind
of wondering if you could give me some more pointers on my hand-
to-hand combat skills. Like you said, I can't always depend on my
Terry smiled at her as he nodded and tensed up. Priss also tensed up
as a silence came up between them. Both made eye contact with each
other, scarlet eyes meeting blue. It was then that they began throwing
punches and kicks, while blocking and evading attacks.
Priss had been training intensely with Terry ever since that fateful
night where she had finally admitted her true feelings toward him.
With her prior combat training with the Knight Sabers and the street-
fighting methods she had gained while growing up, she had proven to
be a mean combatant. She was nowhere near Terry's level, but she
picked up many of the basic and more advanced moves in his arsenal
with ease. Terry had even noticed that she was beginning to achieve
focus of her ki and a very slight, almost indiscernible battle aura had
begun to form.
To the untrained eye, there was nothing out of the ordinary, but to a
martial artist, it was unmistakable. Terry saw it for a moment as Priss
attempted a high-reverse spin kick, aimed for his head. However, he
easily dodged it, and Priss found herself overextended and off-
balance. She landed hard on her rear let off a groan of pain.
Terry immediately went to her side and knelt down.
"Are you all right, Priss?"
The girl winced before she nodded and slowly got to her feet, while
rubbing her sore posterior with a hand. "Yeah, I'm... okay. The only
thing I bruised besides my butt was my pride."
"What were you trying to do. Were you trying to copy my Crack Shot
"Yeah, but I guess I need a little more work with it."
"That wasn't half-bad, but next time, you'd better judge the distance
between the reach of your foot and your target. You also need to time
it right and use it when your opponent least expects it. Here, let me
Terry then gave the Knight Saber step-by-step instructions on how to
perform his version of Priss' Leg Bomber attack. The explosive
charges and rocket thrusters in her armor's boots allowed her to kick
through Boomer alloys like tissue paper. However, without her
Hardsuit, she was unable to perform more than a basic spin kick.
As the training progressed, Priss began to feel that same warmth she
felt whenever Terry was near. Every time his hand brushed against
her, she experienced and electrifying tingle shoot through her and her
breathing rate increased a little for brief moments.
Priss gave off a slight sigh. This was love all right, but it was still too
new for her and would take some more time for her to get used to it.
Then she though about the possibility that Terry might leave for his
world after the business with Geese was done.
"Terry... I was... wondering...?"
Priss took a deep breath, opened her mouth... and closed it again. She
shook her head sadly and then took a ready stance once more.
"Nothing. It's nothing. Shall we get on with it?"
Terry was about to say something, but then decided to keep his peace
as he nodded and resumed the training.
It was about a few minutes before the Knight Sabers and the Terry's
group was ready to move out for their assault on Genom. As the
Knight Sabers and Mackie were making their final checks and the
other fighters were readying themselves, Terry stood alone off to one
side with his own thoughts.
<It's funny. Ever since I was transported to this world, I wanted
nothing more than to go back home. But... what's waiting for me
there? Andy and Mai are my only family, but Andy doesn't need me
to look after him. He's got Mai. What do I got? Just me... and the
open road. Joe has his own life, while Mai and Andy get to share
their lives together. And my life? What do I want in my life? Am I
really happy to go back to the way things were? Geese must be
stopped once and for all, but what happens after that? And... there's
Priss. What do I do about her? I don't know if I can leave her,
especially after what happened between us over the past few days. >
Terry continued to ponder, then came up with an idea, but shot it
down the moment he thought of it. <Hey! Maybe I can... No... I can't
ask her to come with me. She'd be a stranger in my world as I am in
hers. Besides, she's told me that she wants to start her singing career
again after Geese is defeated and I can't just ask her to abandon her
dreams, just for me. >
Terry sighed as he found himself unsure of his destiny.
Priss was silent as she and the other Knight Sabers began suiting up
and making the last checks in their new Hardsuits. As Priss was
putting on the upper portions of her armor, Linna started a discussion
with her as she too put on her metal suit.
"Man! I can't believe that I didn't get Terry and you did! I practically
threw myself at him, and he chose you! You are one lucky girl!"
Nene giggled a bit as she joined in on the conversation. "Yeah! I
thought you weren't interested in him, but you managed to get that
Priss gave both of them a weak smile and said nothing as she was
still thinking about what she was going to do when this was all over.
"C'mon Priss! Give us some details! I can stand my losing him to you,
but the least you can do is to tell us what he's like!" Linna said. "Was
he gentle with you?"
This immediately caught Priss' attention as her cheeks became
flushed and she shook her head frantically. "NO! I mean... we
haven't... we've only... HEY! THAT'S NONE OF YOUR FREAKING BUSINESS!"
Nene and Linna both laughed a bit more at how flustered Priss
became, but were immediately silenced when Sylia approached them.
"All right girls, that's enough. It's time we focused on the mission!"
The girls immediately nodded their leader as they finished suiting up
and powering up their armored suits. In the driver's seat, Mackie gave
his sister the thumbs up as he started the engine.
At that moment, Terry and the rest of the fighters all piled into the
Knight Saber's Trailer, which was a huge rig that served as a mobile
base of operations for the armored vigilantes. There was no turning
back as the attacking force on Genom moved out.
In the driver's cab, Mackie then pressed a remote control device,
which activated both the Silky Wagon and the Sky Carrier in its
private airfield. Sylia had decided that this would be the Knight
Sabers final battle and they would need all the resources they had.
The VTOL carrier was soon flying overhead while the Silky Wagon
drove beside the huge rig. All three vehicles were loaded with all the
weapons and equipment that could be stored in each and the Knight
Sabers were ready to use them all up if necessary.
An hour before noon, ten miles north of Genom in a large field
The fighters and the Knight Sabers were gathered around a monitor
as Sylia outlined the battle plan.
"During our battles against Genom, the corporation had installed
various heavy, anti-aircraft and ground defense units around the outer
perimeter. We're going to have to blitz Genom on three sides, to
divide their forces and ensure that at least some of us will get through
to the main command center, which is located here." She indicated
the are where the dimensional projector, power generators and main
database computers were located. "This is also where they take
control of the satellite communication station in Mega-Tokyo as well
as use the power generators to transport those KB-Boomers. It is
imperative that that we get there before noon. Some of us will
approach in the Sky Carrier, while the rest will attack on the ground.
Don't worry about piloting it, as it's already been preprogrammed.
Our Motoroids are also at your disposal and are programmed to assist
all of you. Once we stop Geese from transporting those Boomers and
destroy them and the OMS system, then the rest should be just a
mop-up. Any questions?"
There was only silence as the others took in the plan without any
problems. They all signaled their assent as they boarded their
vehicles for the final assault.
Forty-five minutes before noon...
Geese nodded as he switched off his monitor after the
communications officer gave him the message that three unidentified
vehicles were heading straight toward the corporation on three fronts;
two from the ground and one from the air. He told his allies on the
intercom to take their positions and began deploying the defensive
units, which included dozens of BU-55Cs, Dobermans, and several
other models. The lasers and autocannons that were strategically
hidden in gun mounts around the outer and inner perimeter, were
activated and began tracking for targets. Multiple missile launchers
were also deployed and ready to launch their deadly payloads.
Geese was just too close to be stopped now. He still had a few trump
cards to play yet.
As soon as the three vehicles came within a mile of their objective,
the skies became lit with explosions and light as laser beams, flak
and missiles raked the air. On the ground, the landscape became like
scorched Earth as Boomers and the Genom's auto defenses began
pouring out withering fire against the attackers.
High up in the air, the Sky Carrier went through a series of evasive
maneuvers to dodge the barrage of projectiles and energy bolts, all
the while firing back with its own weapons. Inside the craft, Nene,
Ryo, King and Kim readied themselves to disembark from the craft
when they were close enough. The ship shuddered as a couple of
missiles and a laser blast impacted against the hull, causing it to
begin losing altitude. Another hit by a trio of cannon shells and the
VTOL plane had no chance of staying in the air.
Nene winced as she realized that the carrier was doomed, but because
of the dire situation, it was considered expendable. She decided to
direct the ship toward Genom on a kamikaze dive toward one of
Genom's main buildings. However, they were not going to commit
suicide with the plane. She then motioned for the others toward the
emergency escape hatch along with the Motoroids as the ship
plummeted to the ground.
Linna gasped as she drove the Silky Wagon with Joe, Robert, Yuri
and Kyo riding behind her. She saw the Sky Carrier falling toward
Genom, and feared that all those aboard would be killed in the crash.
However, when she saw an escape pod jettisoned itself from the rear
of the ship, she knew that the passengers and Nene must have gotten
out in time. The Sky Carrier went down like a blazing meteor and
slammed hard into one of Genom's research facilities. The building
toppled over as the plane smashed into it and exploded. With all of
the ordinance still aboard the ship, it made a spectacular fireball,
taking the entire building with it.
The large escape pod landed on the ground well within the inner
perimeter and opened up. King, Ryo, Kim and Nene exploded into
action, followed closely by the two Motoroids they had managed to
bring with them. The automatons began laying down covering fire as
the fighters and the Knight Saber advanced forward, only to be met
by a platoon of Boomers.
Nene was amazed to see unarmed people begin trashing Boomers like
toys, then remembered that she had her own ways of turning Boomers
into scrap. She activated her suit's electro-jammers and sonic
cannons. Several Boomers had their circuits fried and started
shooting each other.
Terry, Priss, Mai, Andy, and Sylia braced themselves as Mackie
drove the Trailer at an increasing speed toward the north gate of
Genom. Despite the pounding that the truck was getting from the
auto defenses and the Boomers, the armored vehicle continued to
accelerate toward its objective. Just as the truck was about a few
hundred yards from the gate, Sylia ordered everyone to abandon the
truck. Mackie nodded as he put the vehicle on autopilot and
scrambled into the back. He then got into his powered battle suit and
set the two hydraulic boom arms to launch the two Motoroids in their
cycle modes. Priss immediately hopped on one of them, while Terry
mounted the other. Mai sat behind Priss and Andy sat behind his
brother. The two cycles were automatically launched from the Trailer,
just as Mackie and Sylia made their own escape via their suits' jet
The huge trailer continued on its suicide run and slammed into the
midst of the wave of Boomers that was sent out to defend the
perimeter. Their numbers were scattered as the rig smashed a few of
them into scrap by its sheer weight and size, then collided with a
storage facility, causing it to go up into a huge conflagration of
flames and twisted metal.
Terry gritted his teeth as the tires hit the ground with bone-jarring
impact, but he managed to drive the motorcycle a few hundred more
yards before he saw another wave of Boomers taking up a firing
position in his path.
The Bogard Brothers leapt off the speeding bike, just as the Boomers
opened fire. The poor cycle was turned into a flaming wreckage in
less than an instant as the siblings managed to roll to safety. They
quickly recovered and began rushing toward the main building with
their ki energies blazing.
"HI SHO KEN!"
Meanwhile, Mai, Priss, Sylia and Mackie were pressing their own
attack as they had managed to retain their Motoroid. The cycle that
Priss had ridden had transformed into its exo-frame and attached
itself to Priss' Hardsuit after Mai had disembarked. The added
firepower that the merger had created was helping the Knight Saber
lay down a withering barrage of covering fire as her allies made their
way toward the main objective.
Mai Shiranui-Bogard appeared to be ill-dressed to be in heavy
combat, especially in her very revealing outfit, but those who knew of
her, knew that she was anything but helpless.
"RYU EN BU!"
Two Boomers were turned into flaming masses as her costume's tail
lit them up like torches. She then made several flips to evade several
laser blast, then charged forward in a flying elbow charge as she
suddenly glowed with a reddish gold light.
"CHO HISSATSU SHINOBIBACHI!"
One of Mai's strongest attacks, the Super Deadly Ninja Bees (Don't
ask me why they call it that), slammed into, and through several
Boomers, before causing a large explosion in their ranks. When Mai
found herself surrounded by Boomers after her attack, she realized
that she had charged in rashly. However, her husband was still
watching her back.
"CHO REPPA DAN!"
Andy blazed onto the scene with his Super Sonic Swirl attack and
cut a path through the Boomers. The husband and wife duo then
began taking down their opponents without mercy.
"Terry! You and the others go after Geese! We'll catch up later!"
"Are you sure, Andy?" Terry asked as his Burn Knuckle blasted
though another Boomer.
Terry nodded with Sylia and Priss as they hurried toward the main
building. Mackie decided to stay behind and give covering fire for
Mai and Andy.
Linna and her passengers were fighting their way through the south
gate after disembarking from their now totaled vehicle. Like all the
other vehicles, the Silky Wagon had been shot to pieces and was
abandoned. Linna was using her monomolecular ribbons and electro-
harpoons to slice up whatever Boomer got too close to her. However,
her allies needed no such weapons as they went hand-to-hand with
their mechanized opponents.
"HIEN RYU JIN KYAKU!"
"YURI CHO UPPER!"
"KOMA HON FURI!"
Boomers began to fall like matchsticks as the martial artists cut their
way through the killing machines.
Twenty-five minutes to noon...
Geese shrugged as he began getting reports that the fighters were
battling their way through his defenses. He still had a few surprises
up his sleeve when they did enter the main complex. His base of
operations was the most heavily fortified area and was built like an
nuclear bunker. All he had to do was delay them long enough so that
the dimensional transporter could start sending his KB-1000s and
other Boomers to their positions. A few minutes later, at precisely
noon, the main computer would hack into the communications
satellite relay station and transmit the OMS signal to the particle
cannon satellites above. The timer was set and counting down. He
had disabled the failsafe and locked the computer, thereby ensuring
that the countdown would not be stopped.
Terry and his allies will not be able to reach him as his subordinates
and a couple of other surprises were waiting to kill them.
Fifteen minutes to noon...
Terry, Priss and Sylia entered through the main hall and headed
down a corridor which was supposed to lead them to Geese, but were
then met with stiff opposition as a group of Boomers blocked their
path and opened up with their weapons. Terry found himself
separated from the Knight Sabers as a trapdoor suddenly opened
beneath him and made him drop out of sight.
"TERRY!" Priss shouted as she saw him disappear. However, she had
no time to go after him as more Boomers appeared and began
attacking her and Sylia, forcing them to fall back. Then, she managed
to aim her Motoroid's particle cannon at the ceiling and with one
well-placed shot, she brought the ceiling down on top of the
"We have to find Terry!"
Sylia shook her head. "There's no time! We have to stop Geese first!"
The rest of Priss' protest was cut off as another group of Boomers
appeared and began firing.
Terry wondered what had just happened as he found himself in a
large darkened room. He then heard a noise and stood up in a ready
stance. That was when the lights came on and the Lone Wolf gasped
at what was standing in front of him.
It was Krauser... or rather one of the KB-1000s that Geese had
created. The Boomer looked almost like the one that Terry had to
fight to save Priss, but it seemed colder and more mechanical-
looking. It tensed up as its sensors began analyzing its opponent.
Then Terry heard a familiar voice that played from a hidden speaker.
"Well now. It seems that you have a very nasty habit of surviving,
"GEESE!" Terry spat as he looked around for his sworn enemy.
"Don't bother looking for me, Bogard. I severely doubt that you shall
leave this room alive. The Boomer that you are now facing is an
upgraded model of the one that you destroyed. It has all of Krauser's
powers and abilities, but none of those weaknesses that my half-
brother had. It is more than a match for you, and so I bid you good-
bye Terry Bogard. What a pity that you won't live long enough to
witness my final triumph!"
The loudspeaker then became silent after Geese signed off with his
mocking laughter, leaving the Bogard to his fate as the KB-1000
Kyo was racing down another corridor after he had gotten separated
from Linna and the others during a pitched battle with some
Boomers. He had no idea of where he was going and wondered if he
should try to find his allies.
However, as he rounded a corner, his blood suddenly ran cold as he
felt a numbing chill in the air. Something... no, someone was nearby.
He looked ahead and saw someone in which he never expected to see
in this world.
Iori gave his eternal rival a smirk as he went into a battle stance.
"So... we meet again Kyo."
"Iori! What are you doing here? How...?"
"It does not matter how I got here. What DOES matter is that I can
take care of some unfinished business!"
Kyo shook his head as he took a ready stance. "I don't have time for
this! There's a madman who plans to destroy this world and ours if he
isn't stopped and..."
"I care nothing about Geese Howard's plans." Iori said as he cut Kyo
off again. "What happens to our world or this one makes little
difference to me. I told you before since we last met, that you shall
die at my hands, Kusanagi! After I have finished with you, I shall
welcome death's cold kiss!"
"Enough talk!" Iori snapped as his battle aura blazed. "ONI YAKI!"
Iori's Dark Thrust technique blazed toward his rival in a purple mass
of flames and Kyo had no choice but to counter it with his own.
"Huh? Where did you come from?" Joe exclaimed as he hopped back
to narrowly miss a massive fist.
Raiden gave a short laugh as he charged at the Thai kickboxer "I still
owe you one for that last time we met, runt!"
"Yuri! Look out!" Robert cried out as he saw a figure dash toward
Ryo's sister from behind.
Yuri barely managed to dodge the strike from Mr. Big's clubs and
scrambled back to get more fighting room.
"YOU!" Yuri hissed as she remembered how Geese's subordinate had
kidnapped and tortured her, as well as forcing her father to commit
"Hello again, Yuri! How nice to see you again. I have many plans for
you, my pretty."
"Robert immediately got in front of Yuri and glared at the criminal
with intense hatred> "Over my dead body!"
Mr. Big shrugged as he powered up his ki. "If you insist!" He then
shot a wave of energy through his clubs at Yuri's sweetheart.
"What? You again?!" Andy gasped as he narrowly missed being
impaled on Billy Kane's staff. Mai was busy fighting off a couple of
Boomers to one side, leaving Andy alone to face off against Geese's
subordinate Billy Kane.
"That's right, mate. I told you before that I was going to pay you back
and today's the perfect time to do it! DIE!"
"Ryo... there's something that I've been meaning to ask you." King
said as she kicked off the head of another Boomer.
"Oh? What's that?" Ryo asked as he used his Tiger Flame Punch to
slam a Boomer to the pavement.
"Well... " King found herself blushing a bit as she tried to think of
the right way to say it. She released another Venom Strike attack to
knock down another of her opponents. "I was wondering... if you'd....
like... to... go on a... date?"
This caught Ryo by surprise and he almost got hit by another
Boomer. "You're asking me to go out with you? Now?"
Priss winced as several autocannon rounds hit her Motoroid in the
chest, causing it and her to fall backward. More enemy fire pounded
at the machine's outer casing as the Boomers continued their
relentless assault. Off to one side, Sylia was trying to draw as much
of the barrage away from her comrade, but Priss was still taking hits.
For every Boomer that Sylia managed to down, three more would
appear to take its place. There seemed to be no end to them.
Inside her Hardsuit, Priss decided to abandon her damaged Motoroid
and activated the release mechanisms. The outer shell blew itself
apart.The Knight Saber rolled to one side, came back up and began
firing the plasma cannons and rail guns of her armor. Without her
Motoroid, Priss was no longer weighed down and was able to
Sylia then signaled to her comrade to make a flanking action to the
right while she took the left. The Boomers were concentrated in a
group in front of them and they soon had them in a perfect crossfire.
In less than a minute, a dozen Boomers were destroyed. Wasting no
time, they pressed onward.
"ZAN EI KEN!" Andy shouted out as he charged toward Billy with
his elbow extended. However, the English fighter anticipated his
opponent's attack and used his cane to vault into the air to evade
Bogard. He then came down toward Andy in his Soaring Crackdown
However, Terry's younger brother was also proficient in aerial
combat; more so than his older sibling. As soon as he saw Billy
"SHO RYU DAN!"
The silver-haired fighter rose up into the air with his flaming
uppercut maneuver and caught Billy in the face, knocking him back
down. He then pressed the attack by throwing several high and low
punch combinations and blazed forward again.
"ZAN EI KEN!"
However, Billy had learned from his previous battle with Andy and
was using a different staff than what he had before. This weapon was
sectioned into three, telescoping pieces and he could focus his ki into
the sections to counter ki projectiles and stop charging attacks. Just
as Andy began his charge, Billy thrust his staff forward, aiming
directly at his adversary's solar plexus.
Andy's breath was forced out of him as the end of the pole slammed
into him and drove him backward. He found himself couching up
some blood as he fell to his knees in pain.
"ANDY!" Mai cried out as she saw her husband go down. However,
since she was still dealing with several Boomers, she was unable to
come to his aid in time.
Billy smirked as he saw that he had an excellent opportunity to finish
off his hated foe once and for all. He focused all of his ki into his
staff while spinning it like a propeller. The staff then began glowing
with light and then burst into flames as Billy charged at the fallen
"This is the end, mate! Eat my FIRE WHIRLWIND SPIN!"
However, Billy had made a fatal error of thinking that Andy was
helpless. In actuality, Andy had been pretending to be badly hurt,
when in actuality he was just waiting for Billy to commit himself to a
move. His mouth turned up into a smile as his head snapped up and
he raised his palms.
"HI SHO KEN!"
The ki blast caught Billy full in the face as he cried out and staggered
backward while clutching at his face with one hand. That was when
Andy made a handspring toward him with feet first.
"KUU HA DAN!"
Andy's feet plowed into Billy's chest, making him lose his grip on his
pole and sent him hurtling back. Then there was an agonizing scream
and a sickening crunch as he smashed into a pile of rubble.
Andy landed on his feet and went into a stance, but saw that it was
no longer necessary. A few meters from where he was standing was
the body of the late Billy Kane. When he had hit that pile of rubble,
his body had been speared by a jutting piece of pipe. The former
subordinate of Geese Howard had died when he was impaled. The
thug was now slumped over and blood was flowing down from the
holes in his chest and back.
Andy took a deep cleansing breath and then found himself being
squeezed in a tight embrace. Apparently, Mai had just finished
polishing off those remaining Boomers.
"Andy! Darling are you all right?" Mai asked as she squeezed her
mate tightly, straining his iron ribs.
Andy gasped out and nodded as he tried to loosen his wife's grip on
him. "I'm... okay, Mai. I'm... okay. Can you loosen up a bit?"
Mai relented and released Andy so that he could start breathing
normally again, then looked over to where Billy was. "Is he...?"
Andy nodded again as he rubbed his sore ribs, then gestured with his
head toward the Genom building. "Come on Mai. We still have to
help Terry and the others!"
The female ninja nodded as she and her husband ran toward the front
Joe winced in pain as he was body-slammed to the ground by Raiden.
The oversized wrestler was enjoying the way he was pounding the
little runt into goo. With his great size and bulk, Raiden was quite
capable of withstanding enormous amounts of damage and still keep
on dishing it out.
He then grabbed the kickboxer by the neck and held him aloft while
squeezing. Joe began to gasp as he felt cartilage begin to pop and his
air being cut off. He gripped the arm that held him and tried to pry
those massive fingers from his throat. His legs began kicking at
Raiden's chest, trying to get him to release him, but the huge man
ignored the hits and increased his grip.
Joe had only a few seconds left to react, and out of desperation, he
resorted to one of the oldest, and dirtiest tricks in street-fighting. He
bit down on Raiden's hand. With Joe's sharpened canines, he made
quite an impression.
Raiden howled out in pain as his hand opened by reflex. Joe dropped
to the pavement and began coughing as his breath returned to him.
Knowing that he had just less than a split-second to attack, he leapt
up which ki blazing as he extended on leg with the knee bent.
The knee slammed into Raiden's chin and bent him backward. At the
same time, Joe made a backflip, landed a few meters away from him,
then charged forward with one leg extended.
The ki focused in that foot slammed hard into Raiden's midsection
and drove him back a few more yards. Then Joe decided not to waste
any more time with this jerk and called forth his strongest technique.
The Thai kickboxer focused all of his power into one massive attack,
just as Raiden recovered from the Slash Kick and charged at Joe.
"Now you're dead, runt!"
"Don't think so! SCREW UPPER!"
Joe threw a fist into the air and released a towering, orange-red
tornado at his foe. Raiden was too large to evade such a technique
and caught the full force of the attack. He was thrown high into the
air and sent flying several dozen meters away. The massive wrestler
came down and crashed into the pavement like a meteor. He made a
sizable dent in the ground and became still.
Joe slumped down to his knees after executing such a draining
attack. He looked over to where Raiden had landed and saw that his
head was at a very odd angle. He waited for a minute for his foe to
get up, but saw that Raiden was not moving. Forcing himself to his
feet, Higashi slowly approached his fallen adversary and when he got
close enough, leaned forward to get a good look. He then realized
why Raiden wasn't moving. The man had broken his neck when he
Joe swallowed hard. This had been the first time he had killed
someone and though it was in self-defense, it still left him trembling.
Fighting back the urge to throw up, Joe turned around to go help his
"Iori! This is pointless!" Kyo said as he dodged a vicious slash attack
from his foe. "If Geese is not stopped now, this world and ours will
Iori snorted as he continued to press the attack. "And as I told you
before, that does NOT concern me! Since the day of my birth, it had
been my destiny to destroy the Kusanagi clan! To cause your death is
the very reason why I exist!"
"And as I told you before, you have no one but your ancestors to
blame for that!" Kyo retorted as he blocked a few punches and evaded
the rest. "The Yagami clan was the one that broke the pact and made
a deal with the Orochi! Your clan betrayed mine!"
"Enough!" Iori shouted as he slashed at his rival with another
slashing technique, his hands burning with purple flames. "You have
no idea of the pain I feel whenever I use the power! The pain will
only stop when every last member of your clan is gone from this
plane of existence and I will make certain that the Kusanagi line ends
here and now!"
Ryo frowned as he saw that there was no way of reasoning with him
with words. It seemed that he would have to BEAT some sense into
him. It was at that moment that Iori leapt toward him.
Kyo countered Iori's attack with his own.
Scarlet and purple flames clashed with one another as both fighters
tried to overpower his opponent. However, both found themselves
thrown back as the two attacks canceled each other out. Before they
could make another attack against each other, one of the side walls
suddenly exploded and separated the two combatants. Kyo found
himself under attack by some Boomers and as he fought them off, he
heard Iori's voice form behind the huge mound of debris that
"Next time Kyo Kusanagi, we shall have our final battle! And I will
dance on your corpse!"
Kyo then heard several more explosions off into the distance, then
heard no more from his foe as he turned his attention back to his
Seven minutes to noon...
Robert and Yuri were getting nowhere against their arch-enemy Mr.
Big, as he had also called in more Boomers against them to soften
them up. They had spent the last five minutes beating back wave after
wave of the killing machines. There seemed to be no end to them and
they were beginning to tire. It wouldn't be long before they would be
overwhelmed by sheer numbers. Even with Linna lending them
support, they were in a bad situation.
Mr. Big chuckled as the Boomers began pushing them back. It
wouldn't be long now. He was looking forward to putting Yuri back
on her leash again as well as whoever was in that green armor. He
was going to enjoy breaking her in.
Robert delivered another one of his crushing blows to a Boomer and
turned to Linna and Yuri. "This is taking too long and we have to get
"Gotcha!" Ryo's sister cried out as she began focusing her ki. "I'll get
the ones on the left!"
"I'll take the ones on the right!"
"I'll get the ones in the middle!" Linna replied as she prepared to use
the newest weapon in her armor's arsenal.
The three took up their positions as the Boomers prepared to make a
Both Robert and Yuri pulled back their arms while cupping their
hands, then threw them forward, releasing huge blasts of ki.
"HAOH SHO KOH KEN!"
At the same time, Linna launched four power lines, each tipped with
a special, barbed spear point. The tips then exploded into several
dozen smaller points and lines each. When those micro-spears
imbedded themselves into the Boomers, Linna channeled massive
amounts of energy into them, thereby shorting out four dozen
Boomers at once. The Supreme Roar attacks of Yuri and Robert
reduced the remaining machines to slag.
Mr. Big was shocked to see his forces obliterated in less than a few
seconds and decided that this was the time to retreat. However, just
as he was about to retreat, his path was suddenly blocked by an angry
"I still haven't paid you back for what you did to Yuri and her father!"
Mr. Big let off a yell as he charged forward with his batons.
However, Robert was not going to let this scumbag go unpunished.
He easily evaded the clubs and then let loose with a barrage of
devastating kicks and punches.
Mr. Big was slammed backward by the unrelenting assault and
bounced once on the ground before rolled to a stop. He gasped out
and was then unconscious.
Robert nodded with satisfaction and gestured to Linna and Yuri to
follow him into the complex.
Kim Kaphwan ran through the complex at a frantic pace. Like several
others, he too got separated from his group when the fighting started
and was making his own way through Geese's stronghold. He had
encountered several dozen Boomers along the way and had been
fighting nonstop. As he continued deeper into the complex, he began
to get the distinct feeling that he was getting close.
Just as Kim rounded a corner, he immediately halted in his tracks as
he saw someone standing in his way. She was woman that appeared
to be in her late twenties and was wearing a white silk blouse, red
skirt, high-heeled pumps and had short blonde hair. She smiled
seductively at the Tae Kwon Do champion and gestured with her
finger to come closer.
"Who are you?" Kim demanded then shrugged. "No, it does not
matter who you are. Stand aside! I have no quarrel with you. You
should get out of here before those Boomers attack and..."
The woman then gave off a bloodthirsty cry and charged at him with
inhuman speed. She swung and arm at his chest and Kim felt a nasty
burning sensation and heard the sound of cloth being ripped as he
backpedaled. He made a short hop back and looked down at his chest
to see a huge rip in his gi top and red slash mark. He looked back at
his attacker who now held up a hand with very long fingernails that
were razor sharp. The woman held up the other hand and her nails
instantly extended to resemble miniature swords.
"Boomer." Kim gritted as he mentally chided himself for letting his
guard down. This Boomer was one of the special BU-33Cs that Sylia
had outlined in her briefing. There were used primarily as spies,
assassins and bodyguards.
Kim was confident that he could handle one of these type of Boomer,
but the odds suddenly changed when two hidden panels opened up
from the side walls, and a couple of identical Boomers to the first
one appeared behind him. They too extended their nails and
positioned themselves for an attack. The fighter frowned as he saw
himself in a difficult situation. The hall was narrow and offered very
limited space to maneuver. Kim's fighting style needed a lot of
fighting room. Furthermore, he felt a slight numbing feeling that was
starting to make him dizzy and assumed that the first BU-33's nails
must have been drugged or poisoned. He needed to finish them off
The two Boomers behind him leapt at him with their nails extended
toward his head, and Kim had to wait until the last instant, before
ducking them. He pivoted on one foot and swung his other leg up in a
spin kick, knocking into the side of one Boomer and slamming her
into the other. As the two BU-33s crashed to the ground, he charged
forward and leapt at them, just as they were getting back up.
Both Boomers received a series of rapid-fire kicks to the heads and
despite being having an outer skin of anti-laser and ballistic-resistant
coating, their heads exploded. Their bodies slumped to the ground as
the first Boomer backed off after witnessing its two counterparts lose
Kim wasted no time as he made a flip toward the last Boomer while
doing the splits.
"HAN GATSU ZAN!"
The Crescent Moon Slice was on target and the last BU-33 was
reduced to a pile of junk. There was a minor explosion as it was
destroyed, but Kim was too dizzy to notice it was the drugs in his
body was starting to take effect. Fortunately, he had not received a
lethal dose, and would eventually recover as he staggered onward
toward his goal.
Four minutes to noon...
Terry was breathing hard as the KB-1000 forced him back. Geese had
not been kidding when he said that this model had all the powers of
the original and was a lot tougher. A quick glance at his watch told
him that he was running out of time and had to beat this thing
quickly. However, the Boomer was essentially tireless, and even a
martial artist with phenomenal endurance would eventually wear
Terry ducked as the KB-1000 sent another barrage of Blitz Balls at
him. These projectiles exploded all around as the walls and ceiling
trembled from their impacts. Terry noted that the ceiling wouldn't be
able to take much more abuse and a sizeable section was ready to
fall. This gave Terry a desperate idea as he charged at the copy of one
of his greatest opponents.
The KB-1000 chose at that moment to power up for a Kaiser Wave.
Just as it was about release the blast, Terry suddenly inverted himself.
The extended foot glowed with a blue light as Terry rocketed upward
upside-down with his body spinning like a drill. The kick connected
with the KB-1000's chin and knocked its head back. Terry continued
to rise upward until his foot hit the weakened section of ceiling. He
then used the ceiling to push himself away from the Boomer, just as
it started to fall down. The Lone Wolf barely managed to land clear
as the huge mass fell down on top of the Boomer with a thunderous
crash. Terry rolled to safety and got back to his feet. He saw that the
pile of rubble that covered his foe was beginning to shift and he had
perhaps a few seconds before the Boomer would emerge. He charged
forward and leapt high, just as the Boomer's head emerged.
The energized fist came down on the Boomer's noggin like a pile
driver, smashing through the cranium. Apparently, the newer models
didn't have quite as hard a head as the original Krauser.
With its head and logic circuits completely decapitated, the Boomer
was no more of a threat, and Terry paused for a moment to catch his
breath. However, when the room began to tremble again, he knew that
he had to get to safety and fast. He frantically looked around for a
way out and spotted a large ventilation grate. With one kick, he broke
it open and crawled into the shaft, just as the rest of the room
collapsed in on itself. He didn't know where he was going but he then
came to another grating which coincidentally led to an elevator shaft.
As soon as he kicked out the grating, he looked down and realized
that he had found a direct route to where Geese was. Sylia had said
that he would be in an underground bunker on the lowest level and
this path would lead him straight to him!
Three minutes to doomsday...
Geese smiled as he watched his army of Boomers line up and waited
to be transported to their destination. The dimensional transporter
was powering up to send his killing machines out for their mission of
destruction with his KB-100s leading the way. In exactly one minute
before the OMS chip was activated, the Boomers would be
transported to key locations around the globe.
Sylia and Priss had just finished off the last of the Boomers guarding
the elevators and stairways when they realized that they wouldn't get
to Geese in time. They soon joined by Nene, Linna, Joe, Kim,
Robert, Yuri and all the others as they came from different
"Nene! Geese is going to transport those Boomers in about ninety
seconds!" Sylia said.
"We won't be able to get to him in time!" Linna stated.
All seemed lost until Nene came up with an idea. "We may not
HAVE to get to him to stop him from transporting and using the
OMS!" She immediately went over to one of the elevator control
panels and ripped out the cover. She then extended computer jacks
from her suit and began hacking into the systems that connected it
with the computer mainframe. "I couldn't get into the system before
since it was too heavily shielded from the outside, but now I think I
can throw a monkey wrench into Geese's works!"
"Hurry up Nene! He's going to start transporting in thirty seconds!"
The crime boss of Southtown let off an evil, maniacal laugh as the
dimensional gateway opened up and the first wave of Boomers began
entering it. His move toward conquest was now complete. More than
a hundred Boomers with the KB-1000s leading the way would soon
be raining death and destruction all over the globe, distracting all the
major governments. And once the OMS chip began sending out its
signal, ALL the Boomers in the world would be at his command, as
well as the orbiting particle cannons. Geese would become the master
of this world and his own!
It was just after the last of his invasion force had entered the
dimensional gate that the main computer began giving out warning
alarms. Geese's technicians began investigating the problems and the
head technician gasped when one of them came up to him with a
report. The computers began to spark and smoke as something began
tampering with their circuits and programs. The place where the
OMS chip was installed then blew itself out.
"What is it? What's going on?" Geese demanded.
The head technician gulped as he replied. "Sir! Something has just
taken control of the OMS and causing it to overload! And that's not
all. The main navigational system has been corrupted by some kind of
computer virus and the transporter had just received new coordinates
to send those Boomers to..."
"Where? Where were they sent to?" Geese demanded.
The technician gulped as he replied in a very nervous voice. "Out in
space sir. Specifically, near the orbit of the sun."
Sure enough, a dimensional rift opened up a few thousand miles from
the blazing surface of the sun. The Boomers found themselves
floating in deep space and were inevitably caught in the star's massive
gravity. One by one, the Boomers were burned up like matchsticks in
a furnace. Even the mighty KB-1000s could not withstand the intense
heat as they too went up in flames, along with Geese's dreams of
"You did it Nene! You saved the world!" Linna cried out after Nene
had told them of the fate of those Boomers and the OMS chip.
The others began cheering when they heard the news and even Priss
had to admit that the weakest member of the Knight Sabers had done
one hell of a job.
"Good work, Miss Cyber-Punk."
However, their joy was to be short-lived as the floor began to rumble.
Apparently, Geese had kept a couple of his KB-1000s in reserve and
now they were carrying out their preprogrammed orders to destroy
any and all intruders. The machines emerged from out of secret
compartments in the floor and began attacking their Knight Sabers
and their allies.
Down in his bunker, Geese shouted out in outrage at being so close
to seeing his plans come to fruition, only to have tripped over the
finish line. He turned on the frightened technicians and powered up
his ki, preparing to kill the lot of them for their failure. However, that
was when he heard a shout from behind the reinforced doors to the
The massive doors caved in like wet newspaper and when the dust
cleared, Geese saw the one person in which he despised the most in
this world and his own.
The technicians took this opportunity to run for their lives as Geese
and Terry faced each other off in what would be their final battle.
Meanwhile, a few floors above the bunker, the KB-1000s were
fighters from Terry's world. All of them were tired from battling their
old foes and the other Boomers and the Knight Sabers were running
low on ammunition and power. Several of the fighters were already
down and just barely alive. Kim had succumbed to exhaustion and
the drugs that his body was still fighting off. Joe had sustained a few
cracked ribs. Yuri received a sprained foot while Robert had received
a concussion. Mackie was trapped inside his armor which had
exhausted all of its remaining power reserves. That only left Ryo,
King, Kyo, Andy, Mai and the Knight Sabers to deal with the
Unfortunately, they too were exhausted and were taking hits, while
their Boomer opponents were shrugging off their attacks as if they
King and Ryo launched their ki attacks at one of the Boomers, while
Kyo, Andy and Mai assisted the Knight Sabers with the other.
However, the Boomers merely swatted away the projectiles and began
firing massive volleys of Blitz Balls at them, forcing them back
toward a section of wall. It was then that they powered up to release a
massive, double Kaiser Wave.
Sylia and the other Knight Sabers placed themselves in front of the
others in a split-second before the massive wave of destructive energy
was released. The new Hardsuits they were wearing were designed to
withstand several of the Prototype Krauser Boomer's Kaiser Waves,
but these models had far greater power. The Knight Sabers took the
brunt of the blast and barely survived inside their armor, but enough
of the double Kaiser Wave got through and knocked the remaining
fighters off their feet. When the energy dissipated, all the fighters
were now sprawled on the ground and unconscious. The Knight
Sabers were also helpless as their power reserves were diminished to
almost nothing and their suits had sustained massive damage. The
Boomers then moved in for the kill.
Geese and Terry faced each other off in the now empty bunker and
locked eyes with one another. One could feel the tension in the air as
the two adversaries assessed each other and waited for the other to
make the first move.
Geese nodded to his hated, yet worthy adversary. "Hmmm, I should
have known that you would be the one to have gotten so far, Terry.
Perhaps it is better that I kill you with my own hands!"
"Geese..." Terry growled as he took a stance. "You have a lot to
answer for! You murdered my father! As I said the last time, I will
never forgive you for that! Master Tung died because of you! And I
haven't forgotten when you killed Lily!"
Geese smiled as he recalled the young serving girl that Terry had
become fond of, who later betrayed the King of Southtown. He
enjoyed the anguish he had caused to Terry when he killed her. "Ah
yes, the little bitch! I certainly enjoyed sending her to Hell and seeing
the look on your face when she died in your arms. I must say, that
besides seeing Jeff Bogard die, that was one of the high points of my
life. Now, don't worry, you will be joining her very soon. And so will
your brother, his wife and all your friends. I will see to that!"
"NO! THIS ENDS NOW, GEESE!"
The Lone Wolf let off a shout and charged.
Priss got a sickening feeling of deja vu as her armor would not
respond to her commands and felt like a full body metal strait jacket.
The KB-1000s were approaching them as they lay helplessly on the
ground. She knew that her Hardsuit was now worthless and had to be
discarded. She triggered the charges on her armor, which caused it to
explode from her. It was time to put Terry's training to the test.
As soon as she was free, she immediately rolled to one side, just as
one of the Boomers raised a hand and fired off a Blitz Ball. The
second Boomer stood back as its computers deemed that it was
unnecessary to waste power as its counterpart would finish off the
intruders. The explosion destroyed whatever was left of Priss' armor
as she dove for cover. In less than an instant, the Boomer was upon
her as she desperately got to her feet and tried a triple-punch combo
to its face. However, her fists winced in pain as they his the hard
alloys. The Boomer casually swatted her like an annoying fly, making
her go sprawling onto the devastated floor. Before she could react,
the Boomer moved with blinding speed and grasped her by the throat.
It then held her aloft and began to squeeze.
"Priss!" The other Knight Sabers cried out as they saw their comrade
begin to choke and they were helpless to do anything about it. The
charges that would have freed them from their suits were damaged
and needed to be triggered manually from the outside.
At that moment, Andy and Mai were regaining consciousness and
saw that Priss was about to die at the hands of one of the Boomers.
They tried to get up, but their battered and bruised bodies made them
too slow to react. This looked like the end.
Priss fought hard from blacking out, then out of the corner of her
vision, she saw a small crack in the Boomer's arm, near the shoulder
joint, which probably was made during the earlier battle. Out of sheer
desperation, she kicked out at the crack with both feet while she
grabbed the Boomer's wrist with her hands. The crack caved in and
jostled a motor relay, which caused the Boomer's hand to open
reflexively. Priss dropped to the ground and then focused all of her
energy into one single move. For one brief instant her eyes glowed
red as she hopped up and swung herself into a vertical spin kick.
The extended foot glowed brightly with a blue light as it slammed
hard against the Boomer's head. The head exploded and sent the
Boomer reeling back, causing it to crash against the other KB-1000.
Both machines staggered back toward an open elevator shaft as Priss
scrambled away. She bumped against Mackie's Powersuit and saw
that his autocannon still had a few rounds left into it. She hefted the
weapon over her shoulder and fired off the remaining shots at her
enemies while they were still off balance. This caused them to tumble
down the elevator shaft.
After throwing away her weapon, Priss quickly reached over and
removed one of the S-Mine charges that Mackie's suit kept in a secret
compartment. She then ran over to the elevator shaft, set the timer
and threw it down the shaft, just as the Boomers hit the bottom.
The damaged KB-1000 landed hard on top of its counterpart and
struggled to get up when the S-Mine landed on top of its severed
neck and exploded. The energies within the Boomer was released
through the chain reaction, taking the other Boomer with it.
The force of the explosions threw Priss back, but she managed to roll
with the impact, thanks to Terry's training of controlled falls. Then,
all was silent as Priss took the moment to gather herself.
"That... was great." Andy gasped.
Mai nodded in full agreement. "I don't think Terry could have done
Priss could only smile as she crawled over to her comrades to free
them from their suits.
The ki attacks canceled each other out as both fighters exchanged
deadly blows and kicks. Geese had been training for more than two
years since his last battle with Terry and had grown much stronger
since that time. Then again, after battling Krauser and the God of
War, the Lone Wolf had also increased substantially in both power
Geese ducked beneath the blow as he had done before, then delivered
an open palm strike toward Terry's chest. However, Terry had learned
from his previous mistakes and twisted to avoid it, ending up into a
vertical spin kick.
This move caught Geese in the head as he was knocked to one side.
However, he deftly rolled to one side and sent another ki blast at his
"DOUBLE REPPU KEN!"
The amplified ki wave paused for a moment before rocketing toward
Terry. Terry immediately countered by slamming his fist to the floor.
"POWER WAVE... TIMES TWO!"
The waves once again canceled each other out, but Terry was closer
to the blast than Geese was. This caused him to be knocked back and
that was when Geese took the advantage. He delivered a brutal kick
to Terry's side, then slammed a fist into his chest.
Terry bit down on the pain as he felt a few ribs cracking, but wasn't
about to give up now. He crouched down flipped up as Geese
This caught Geese off guard as he was knocked back by Terry's fist as
he spun upwards with arms extended. He then made a neat flip and
landed on his feet a few meters away as Geese shook his head to clear
it. Terry decided to use the move that defeated him before. He took a
stance and focused his energy. Pinpricks of light appeared and
absorbed into his body.
Geese however, smirked as he had developed a move to counter
Terry's Super Hurricane Kick. He got into his own stance ad focused
his own power.
"FINAL ATTACK... HADO SEPPU KYAKU!"
The huge tornado that Terry whipped up enveloped him and was then
launched at Geese. The King of Southtown smirked as he suddenly
glowed with green light, then struck the floor with both hands.
A large cage of energy suddenly sprang up, just as the tornado hit
Geese, causing both attacks to explode in one massive burst. Geese
was unharmed but Terry was thrown back and slammed into a
console. The Lone Wolf was in a state of disbelief as he staggered to
"W-W-What was that?"
Geese gave off a short laugh as he replied smugly. "Did you really
think that you could defeat me with the same move twice? I have
grown far more powerful since we last met and now, the final
technique of the Hakkyoku Saiken is as nothing to me. Prepare to
die!" Geese raised his hand to deliver a massive ki wave at the
weakened Terry. Using the Super Hurricane Kick, plus all the battles
and injuries he had endured to get to the bunker had weakened Terry
to the point of total collapse.
"I have waited for this moment for a long time, Terry Bogard. Say
hello to your father for me... In HELL! DOUBLE REPPU KEN!"
Terry's braced himself and focused all his remaining energy as the
wave sped toward him. <Father... Master Tung... Lily... Sulia....
please... give me strength. >
The wave then enveloped him and blew away the console and wall
Geese smiled in triumph as the wave hit. "It is done."
However, that was when he heard a voice and saw something
charging at him from within the energy. The wave suddenly dispersed
as Terry sped toward him with a glowing fist and eyes.
Geese was struck hard in the chest as Terry's fist plowed into it,
causing his ribs to shatter as a huge blast of energy shot out from his
opponent's fist and burned deep into his chest. The crime lord was
sent hurtling back into the main computer console and slumped
backward over the controls. However, despite being hit by such a
devastating attack, the King of Southtown still survived it and
managed to raise his head to the Lone Wolf.
"H-H-How?! (gasp)... How... could you (gasp)... have survived my....
The Lone wolf was unsteady on his feet but his expression still
remained defiant as he responded. "It's simple Geese. It's the same
reason why my father was chosen over you to learn the secrets of the
Hakkyoku Saiken. The Hakkyoku Saiken is based on the principles
of nature and we learn to cooperate with it. You only want to control
it. You draw your strength from hate, anger and fear. I draw my
strength from my friends, my family, and the ones I love. It's over
Geese. It's all... OVER!"
Geese coughed up some more blood as he felt his life slipping away.
"For me... yes, it is over. However... I won't go to Hell... alone! If I...
cannot defeat you... (cough), then I shall... take you and everyone else
with me!" With his final act, Geese reached into his belt, pulled out a
small device and pressed the button. He then slumped down onto the
ground and died.
The computer console behind him lit up and began showing a
countdown readout set for ten minutes. It was at that moment that the
Knight Sabers, and Mackie, without their armor, and the rest of the
fighters came to the bunker.
"Terry!" Andy called out as he was the first into the large control
room. He then saw Geese dead at Terry's feet. "Is he...?"
"He's dead, but that's not important right now." Terry pointed up to
the screen as the countdown continued.
Nene gasped as she ran to the console and began typing in
commands. She gasped again when she got the readout. from another
"Uh oh! This is bad! This is really, really bad!"
"What is it?" Sylia asked.
"According to this readout, Geese had managed to take control of one
of the particle cannon satellites before I overloaded the OMS! The
satellite is now powering up to fire directly at Genom! The blast will
vaporize the entire complex and most of Mega-Tokyo! And that will
also detonate the fusion reactors that power the city. That could take
out the entire island of Japan!"
Sure enough, high above the Earth, the satellite was moving into
position as its targeting computers were locking onto its target.
"Can't you stop it?" Priss asked.
"With my suit, yes, but the system is locked and there's no time to
find the override code manually!"
"What are we going to do?" Linna asked with panic in her voice.
"Millions of people are going to die!"
Terry thought for a moment, then looked over to where the
dimensional projector was still standing. "Nene, can you operate the
The technological Knight Saber looked over to where the projector
was and nodded. "Yeah, I can do it! Hopefully, there will be enough
power to do the job!"
"What are you planning?" Mai asked.
Nene ran over to where the device was and looked it over as she
explained. "I'm thinking of using the dimensional projector to
transport that satellite out of orbit to a place where it can't do any
"Hey! I get it!'" Joe exclaimed. "Just like you did with those Boomers!
Maybe you can move that satellite to the sun or something!"
"Right! It will only take me a minute to..." Nene's expression turned
to shock and horror as she saw the power level readouts. "Oh... no!"
"What's wrong ?" Terry asked.
"The... power relays... were fried when I took control of the projector
to transport those Boomers. There's only enough power to transport
up to a dozen people... nowhere near enough to move something as
large as that satellite. And once that power is gone... the projector
will never work again."
"So... you're saying... that this will be our one and only chance of
getting home?" Ryo asked.
"That's about the size of it." Nene replied. "I can call up the
dimensional coordinates to your world and send you all back, but we
"But what about that satellite and all those innocent people?" Mai
Sylia sighed as she was faced with a hard decision. "You were all
brought here by accident and had gotten involved in our problems.
You HAVE to go home. This is your only chance."
"But..." King began.
"I'm sorry, but it has to be this way."
"NO! There has to be another way!" Andy protested.
Sylia shook her head again. "There is no other way. If we can save a
few innocent people, then that would be enough. After this is all
over, the threat of Genom to the world will be no more. Trading a few
million people, for several billion doesn't sound like a good deal to
us either, but it's the only deal we have." She then turned to Nene.
"Nene, call up the coordinates to their world and open the gateway."
Nene nodded as she worked the controls. Soon the dimensional gate
opened and waited for the fighters to enter it.
"No! There has to be..." Andy protest was cut off as he felt a hand on
his shoulder. He looked over and saw Terry giving him a small smile.
"Andy... have the others go through the portal."
"What? But we can't just leave them to die!"
"They won't die... not if I can help it."
"I have... an idea, how to save us all."
"What are you talking about?"
"Trust me Andy."
"I can't tell you... but please, trust me on this one. I have only one
shot at this. It's a slim chance, but it's better than the alternative."
"PLEASE ANDY... trust me."
Andy looked at his brother for one long stretch of silence before
finally nodding and signaled to his fellow martial artists. "All of
you... go through the portal now!"
The others gave the Bogard Brothers a strange look, then saw that
there really was no other choice. One by one, they entered the gate
and were instantly transported back to their world. Kim was the first,
followed by Ryo, King, Robert, Yuri and then Kyo. The gateway
started to flicker after Kyo entered it, which made the rest of them
"The portal is becoming unstable! You'd better hurry through it now!"
Andy nodded to his wife as she helped Joe limp toward the portal.
"Don't worry about me Mai. Terry and I will be along in a minute."
Mai nodded as she quickly kissed him. "You'd better be back you big
Joe nodded. "Yeah! We're the Lonely Wolves and we stick together!"
Both Terry and Andy nodded as they watched the two of them enter
the portal. Then Terry took his brother aside and spoke to him in a
"You'd better get going Andy. You don't want to keep Mai waiting."
"Huh? What are you talking about? I thought after all this time, you'd
be glad to be going back home!"
"Andy... I'm already home."
"What?! What are talking about? What are you saying?"
"I'm not going back with you. My place is here. Besides... for my plan
to work... I have to remain here."
"What?! What are talking about? Why do you want to stay here? You
don't belong here! If you stay, then that means Mai, Joe and I will
never see you again! You'll be all alone here!"
"Andy... it hurts me too that I'll never see you, Mai, Joe or all our
other friends, but you're wrong on one thing. I'm not going to be
alone here." He then glanced at Priss.
Andy saw the look in Terry's eyes and recognized it for what it was.
"Terry? Do you mean that you and... Priss?"
Terry nodded while smiling. "After everything that I've been through,
I've finally found a place that I can call... home and someone to help
share my life."
"I've thought long and hard over this and weighed my options. What
do I have waiting for me back home? A long and lonely life of
training and always on the road. When you and Mai got married, I
felt really jealous of you and I thought I'd never have the kind of
happiness that you two share every day. Now, I have that chance and
I'm going to go for it!"
"No, I've made up my mind and I hope that as my brother, you will
respect my decision."
"Terry..." Andy wanted to protest further, but saw in his brother's
eyes of his resolve. In a way, the silver-haired fighter was glad that
his brother was finally finding the long awaited happiness that he had
been repeatedly denied. Though it would be sad to say goodbye,
knowing that Terry would be content was enough. "If... that's what
you truly want Terry, then who am I to stand in you way?"
"Thanks Andy. Say goodbye to Joe and Mai for me, okay?"
"I will. And when Mai and me have our first baby, we're going to
name it Terry."
"I won't forget you Terry."
"I won't forget about any of you I... goodbye."
The Bogard Brothers shared one final embrace before Andy stepped
through the portal and was gone forever from Terry's life.
Terry nodded as he turned back to the Knight Sabers. "Nene, set the
coordinates to transport to outside of Mega-Tokyo. Make sure that
the location is well beyond the complex."
"Uh, shouldn't you be getting into the portal first?" Nene asked.
Terry shook his head. "No. For my plan to work, the coordinates
must be set for as far away from Genom as possible."
"But Terry..." Priss protested as she approached him.
Terry held up a hand. "Don't worry Priss. Everything will work out
all right. Now hurry! We only have a few minutes left before that
satellite fires!" He pointed to the countdown as it passed the
Sylia looked at Terry's determined expression, then told Nene to do
as he said. When the coordinates were set, the Lone Wolf took Priss
into his arms and gave her a very tender kiss.
Priss became weak in the knees as she felt an electrifying sensation
pass through her. The she looked back up at Terry as he took a
"Please forgive me, Priss." Terry whispered as he suddenly grabbed
her by the arm and judo tossed her into the portal.
"What the...?" Linna gasped as Terry suddenly charged forward and
gabbed her. He then tossed her into the portal, along with Mackie.
Before Nene and Sylia could protest, they too were bodily shoved
through the gateway. Then he waited as the countdown continued to
tick down to zero.
T-minus twenty seconds...
Priss, Linna, Nene, Sylia and Mackie found themselves tumbling
onto the ground of the open field where they had planned their
strategy to attack Genom. They quickly ran toward the ridge the
overlooked the city and cast their gaze toward the ruins of Genom.
"What does he think he's doing? That particle beam cannon is going
to destroy us all any second!" Nene exclaimed.
"He's nuts!" Linna cried out.
Priss however, said nothing as she continued to gaze at the ruined
buildings of Genom.
Terry began focusing his energy and all of his remaining strength. He
was only going to get one shot at this and hoped that he could gather
enough power to do the job. If he failed, then it would be the end of
everything. In his mind, he began hearing the words of his old
mentor, Tung Fu Rue.
<Terry, you have already felt the power and serenity of Mother Earth.
Clear your mind and open yourself up to it. There you will find the
Terry nodded as he was surrounded by a column of blue light. Tears
ran down his cheeks. Bright pinpricks of light floated about him like
fireflies as the Lone Wolf called upon the sprit of his loved ones, one
<Lily... Sulia... Master Tung... Father... for one last time, please...
give me strength...>
T-minus 5 seconds....
Terry blazed with unimaginable power as he focused all his attention
on drawing strength from the Earth. The power he possessed when he
had defeated the God of War was as nothing compared to what he
had now. His body trembled as it threatened to explode, but Terry
managed to hold it all in.
T-minus 4 seconds...
The satellite extended its beam cannon and powered up to full charge
and then prepared to fire.
T-minus 3... 2... 1.. 0...
The satellite then fired its deadly payload. The beam of destruction
rained down on the helpless city thousands of miles below. It seemed
that is was the end.
That was when the Lone Wolf laced his hands together and slammed
the floor with his fists.
The ki blast exploded like miniature nuclear blast and then rocketed
upward in a huge column that shook the area for miles around, totally
leveling the entire Genom complex. The particle beam hit Terry's
ascending blast head-on and the two forces battled each other out for
supremacy. For one agonizingly long moment, they seemed to be
evenly matched. However, the satellite above began to experience
overload as its beam was being stopped from hitting its target. Small
explosions began occurring all over it, rocking it about. Then, it
could no longer hold together and was destroyed in one massive
explosion. The debris from the satellite's demise fell toward the Earth
and burned up in the atmosphere.
On the ground, the Knight Sabers stared in awe after seeing the beam
stopped and repelled. The entire Genom complex had been totally
destroyed, yet the rest of Mega-Tokyo had been spared. It was all
over and the evil of the company that had created the Boomers was
"He... did it. He stopped the beam and destroyed the satellite!" Nene
"I can't believe it." Linna said breathlessly.
"Incredible!" Sylia was more than impressed.
Priss was still silent as she looked at the huge crater that was all that
left of Genom. Only one thought was in her mind.
<Terry... is he all right? Did he survive? >
"TERRY!" Priss cried out as she began scrambling down the ridge,
followed by the other Knight Sabers and Mackie.
It had taken some doing but the Knight Sabers managed to make their
way to where the mighty Genom corporation once stood. By luck,
they had come across Leon and his partner as the AD police were
heading toward the crater and doing crowd control. The officer
offered to give them a ride in his car and drove them to the sight. No
sooner had the car stopped at the edge of the crater, Priss scrambled
out of the car and broke through the police lines and looked around
for the man she loved.
"TERRY! TERRY! TERRY! WHERE ARE YOU?"
The other Knight Sabers followed their comrade as she began to
search among the rubble. However, there was no sign of the Lone
"Leon! What are they doing here? They shouldn't be running about
like that in the danger zone!"
The inspector shook his head and instructed his men to hold back.
"No, it's all right. Let them go." He saw the look in Priss' face and
knew that he had already lost her to another man.
Priss got to the center of the crater and gasped at what she saw on the
ground. It was dirty and worn, but she recognized it as the metal plate
sparkled in the light of the setting sun. Terry cap... without its owner.
It seemed that he had perished along with Genom.
"No... No! NO! NO! NO! NO!"
With trembling hands she picked up the cap and clutched it to her
chest as she sank to her knees. Tears began to well up in her eyes as
she began to weep openly, not caring that she wasn't acting at all like
the tough girl that her friends knew her to be. However, her friends
stood back as Priss wept and mumbled to herself.
"Well... Terry.... I guess you and I are even now. I just lost two people
that I loved."
"Well I don't think so."
Priss' head snapped up when she heard the voice and saw a figure
silhouetted in the setting sun. She squinted and wiped the tears from
her eyes. They widened as she saw the muscular figure as his long
blonde hair wafted gently in the late afternoon breeze.
"Isn't that mine?" Terry said as he pointed to the cap.
Priss was up in a flash and tackled Terry to the ground while crying
harder than she ever had before.
"OW! OW! OW! Take it easy Priss! That kind of hurts and..."
"Let it hurt!" Priss said as she squeezed even tighter. Then she looked
up at his face and glared at him angrily. "You jerk! You jerk! How
could you have done that to me!"
"And do you realize what you've done!" Priss snapped. "You can't go
home! You're trapped here forever!"
Terry smiled as he placed a hand under her chin and lifted her face to
his. "Yeah... what a shame." He then tenderly kissed Priss, in which
she returned with interest.
When they finally broke their kiss, Terry looked deep into her eyes
and said those three magic words. "I love you."
Priss felt like crying again as she smiled at him and replied. "I love
The two then continued to kiss as they lay in the center of the
A few months later...
With Genom no longer in existence, there was a period of
reconstruction and relocation for many of the former employees of
that company. Fortunately, through her contacts, Sylia had been able
to set up various programs to help aid them as they began rebuilding.
As for the further development of Boomer technology, the reins were
given back to the people who created them in the first place, namely
the Stingray family. Sylia had become the new head of a company
that she had founded to expand on her late father's research. This
time, Boomers would help mankind and not hurt it. She was also
grooming Mackie to take over the company once he was old enough.
Linna later got romantically involved with Leon as she began opening
up a chain of aerobics and martial arts gyms. As for Nene, her skills
in electronics and computer programming landed her a position with
Sylia's new company and she was also getting closer to Mackie. It
was very possible that she too might take up the Stingray name some
day. Mr. Big was put into prison after committing a few crimes. With
none of Geese's resources available, he wasn't able to worm his way
around the law. As for Iori Yagami, he was never seen again on that
world, but there had been sightings of him back on his own Earth.
Whether or not these sightings are true will forever remain a mystery,
by Kyo Kusanagi continues to keep a constant vigil.
And as for the family and friends that Terry left behind?
A year after they returned to their home world...
"Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Bogard. You have a healthy baby
son." The nurse said as she handed Mai their child.
"Oh Andy! He's beautiful!" Mai said as she cooed her son in her
hospital bed. Her husband leaned over her to gaze upon the newest
addition to the Bogard clan. Nearby, Joe smiled as he watched the
new parents fuss over the little bundle.
"Heh! He's a regular chip off the old Bogard Block! So what are you
going to name the little tyke?"
"His name... will be Terry Bogard... Jr." Andy said as Mai nodded.
And what about Terry?
"So when are you guys going to be back?" Nene asked as Terry and
Priss prepared to ride off into the countryside on their motorcycles.
Terry was dressed in his usual attire as Priss was in her leather jacket
and pants. The only difference was that she has now sporting a red
cap with a metal plate like Terry's.
"Oh, in about a week or so. That's when I start my singing tour.
Terry's coming along with me as my 'personal' bodyguard." Priss said
as she gave her man a wink. On her left hand, a diamond solitaire
glistened in the sunlight.
Terry shrugged while smiling and returned her wink.
Sylia and Linna also smiled at the couple as they began revving their
engines. As they waved goodbye, Nene called after them as they rode
off into the sunset.
"Terry! Priss! When you decided on the date, be sure to send the
wedding invitations to us first!"
The couple both smiled as they waved goodbye to them. Priss took
off her cap and tossed it into the air.
Whoa! That has got to be one of the LONGEST fight scenes and
chapters I have ever written! Well, in any case, Bubble Gum Fury
now draws to a close and I hope you have all enjoyed it. I certainly
enjoyed writing it. On to my other projects!
