"I won't need a trophy thanks, the blood rush was more than enough.
So what's my share of the money we got?"
Rugal then asked "Right, Ready to play?..."
Before anyone could react, he raced off and rammed though a Bus Stop.
The Former Drivers watched in Awe as they saw their cargo be stolen.
The Armoured Van tore though all it drove though.
The Tyrant watched as Roach took a Screaming Zeph's shoulder and ran out of the Lab.
He rubbed his head, which was bleeding, before locking the Lab down, He was ordered only to protect the Lab and Target those who broke in.
Red sat back to enjoy the show, knowing that his insistence to drive would let him cause the most damage. As she saw the van tear through the bus stop, she saw future uses for it. "Try to keep the van in one piece," Red commented neutrally, the glow in her eyes starting to fade. "Especially when we're trying to get the money out."
"Relax...Bet I could ram this bad-boy though a house and All that it would need would be a paint job, It's the same stuff used in Army tanks or so I'm told." Rugal answered as he threw a "REPPU-KEN" Into a crowded PizzaHut.
Joey, Cutter and Ferrous soon arrive back at Maldeaths, Half a Million richer.
They hear screaming that sounds like Zeph coming from inside.
To action. After unloading from the van, and getting there as fast as she could (which wasn't very).
"Looks like I missed quite a bit of fun."
She entered with little regard for her own safety blades thirsty.
"Exactly. Think of how much easier bank jobs would be if we kept this working."
Red's eyes glowed red again as she used her shields to briefly blind another driver, causing another accident as the car veered from an inner lane to an outer lane and promptly got rear-ended.
"Aahhh, my head. Can't they keep it down."Ferrous said, clutching his head.
Walking behind Cutter while nursing a headache, Ferrous said "Oke, who is making that sound?
"I remember each and every achievement I ever earned Metal Head, I don't need a trophy to remind me of it."
He heard the screams from closer to the entrance and jumped up from his place on the couch.
"What the fuck was that?"
He ran towards the sound, Madeline in one hand, scotch in the other.
Coraline turns to Red, looking paler than usual. Her voice quivers as she says "Hey Red? Um, i'm not feeling so good...."
"Inferno? Inferno!" Red leaned forward to try and help Inferno. She hit Rugal to get his attention.
Coraline visibly straightens herself. "No, no. I'm good. I'm fine." Coraline's breathing becomes more labored. "I'm good." She looks at Rugal. "I said I'm fine! That mean's I'm okay, and you can't change that by getting all -Coraline tilts her head- ....bendy"
Ferrous, Cutter and Joey head inside the masion and find Roach tiring to help Zeph who was screaming and trashing on the ground with his Veins glowing green and moving around under his skin.
Rugal pulled the Armoured Van over onto the side-walk.
He then quickly went to Inferno.
"Bendy?...Are you sure you are alright? maybe some air, something to drink, Inferno, come on, talk to me..." He pleaded.
The blades had already leapt to her defence.
They made sure to put themselves between her and Zeph
"Stand down, while it's still your choice."
Red looked Inferno over, trying to figure out what was wrong with her; was she sick? In any case, it wasn't something air would help. "We need to get her back to the mansion, Rugal. We can't help her out here."
Rugal nodded before saying "Just Hang in there, Inferno."
He got back behind the wheel and set off, but kept his speed down in case it was motion sickness.
Café, 5 minutes after Robbery
A man in a blue suit and his heavily armed personal guard was first on the scene.
He walked over to the Van Guards, who were clearly feared for their lives.
"Right...So 3 teenagers out for a run managed to break in to a S-Class Security Van While you were under-fire from 30 different heroes?...And you think I would believe that?"
The guards said nothing as the Man readied his Slashing Aura.
All that was left of the Former guards were some strips on meat on the Café.
He washed himself up in the bathroom before giving orders to his men.
"Find the people who stole from me, bring them to me because nothing you can do can compare to what I will do, MOVE!" Adel shouted at his men.
Coraline begins to sway. "You've got the - the light from the console... keep you, lift you up. They shine like..." Coraline's arm bursts into flame, and she starts grabbing at the air as if she's trying to catch something. "little angels...."
Coraline falls over crumpled on the floor, her arm still aflame.
"Inferno?...You're not making any sense..." Rugal said as he kept his eyes on the road.
He looked back and saw that she had fainted.
"INFERNO!" He yells as he lets go of the wheel to help her.
The Van lost control and broke into the Oncoming Lane.
Rugal realised this and went back into the Drivers seat and smashed it back into the standard lane.
"FUCK! Hold On!"
He began to speed up.
Red immediately cast a shield to contain Inferno's flame. "She's hallucinating... I think she might be posioned," Red explained, thinking that no sickness would progress so quickly.
"Poisoned?! But How?...and When?..." Rugal said as he avoided passing cars.
"If that is the case, then...I might've happened back at the Mansion..."
At that moment the possible downsides of Rescuing Prisoners came to Rugal's mind.
"We can focus on that later," Red replied, swinging her leg around so she could lean over to lift the Inferno off the floor (while minding the burning arm). "She's not as warm as I thought she'd be..."
"Right...." Rugal replied as he took a short-cut though some back yards.
Finally what seemed to be the Local Police gave chase, only they drove black cars and were all dressed up in SWAT style Armour.
"Ahhhhhh...FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU-" Rugal shouted as he slammed a fist on the dash, denting it.
Rugal sent out a "REPPU-KEN" Towards them, sending one off road and into a house.
Who is making that? ...... WTF?
Holding one of his hands against his head, Ferrous tried to find something metal with his other hand just in cause.
What the heck is going on with that guy? What did you do to him Roach? Ferrous said seeing the scene before him.
Red cursed the fact that the van didn't have a back window she could see anything from. "What's going on out there?" Red still attended to Inferno, keeping her from getting knocked around by the off-road driving.
"Police I think...Hang on, I got an Idea..."
Rugal made a sharp 180o turn and soon the 5 cars chasing them could be seen from the windscreen.
Red went to object but Rugal held his hand up to stop her.
Several Armed men with Light Machine Guns got out of the cars and started to set up a perimeter around the Van.
"The second I give the signal, make a barrier around the Van, I'll speed off, in the time it takes for them to get back in their cars, I'll have some distance on them, ready?"
Thanks to Red's assistance, Coraline avoids slamming to the side of the car. As this chaos ensues around them, Red can hear Coraline muttering then maybe, *maybe* we'll come back for those morons who got themselves caught
"Just Relax Inferno, We're nearly home..." Rugal said as he rubbed her head.
The Men kept advancing and closing in.
"Red-0, are you Ready?"
Red looked up at Rugal, her eyes glowing red as she nodded in reply. Now wasn't the time to reflect on Inferno's comment.
Rugal nodded as well and took a deep breath.
God, I hate my ideas...
"Ok on 3..."
The Commanding Officer gave the order.
The Men moved in as Rugal revved up.
One of them went for the Passager door.
Red put up a barrier around the Van and Rugal tearred off down the road, the barrier knocking several of the men down at it hit them.
The CO dived out of the way as the Van nearly hit him.
By the time any of the Men could react, our Villains were already on their way home.
"Ohhhhhh...God I didn't think that would work..." Rugal said out loud.
Coraline continues to mutter. "we're finishing this deal"
As Rugal rubs her head, Coraline nuzzles his hand and murmurs mmmmm... ummnm...
Red waited until the cops were far behind to drop the shield, taking a moment to refocus after that. She still heard Inferno though, and Red caught her as a turn would've sent her to the floor again. "We're almost there..." she said quietly, holding onto Inferno as Rugal kept driving.
After a few turns and bends, the Van reachs Diablo Way and Maldeath's Mansion.
The Car that Ferrous Damaged was in the drive way so Rugal parked up next to it.
He got out and jogged over to the passager side and helped Red to take Inferno out of the Van.
He picked her up and brought her inside.
"Joey! I need your..."
He saw Zeph on the ground screaming in Pain.
Damnit, not now! They'd just gotten Inferno back, and now one of the recruits was in pain. "Fuck... Rugal, go look for Joey. I'll take care of him and Inferno."
"Yeah...Fine..." Rugal said as he laid Inferno leaning on a Wall before heading off shouting "JOEY! COME ON NEED SOME HELP!"
"Look! Look! Look where I'm pointing!" mutters Coraline as Rugal leans her against a wall.
