A Dark Blade Waits
Author's note: This started out as a school project, and, over the course of two years, was expanded into what it is now.
Chapter 6“Breaking news. There is a killer on the loose in Madrid. Stay indoors t all times. Do not go outside unless the circumstances are dire. More as the story unfolds.”
Kraysha, armed with Maledetto, went on a rampage through Madrid. Using a combination of Kraysha’s fearsome powers, and Maledetto’s lethality, they slaughtered anything and anyone that was unfortunate enough to be out at the time, creating a thick crimson creek through every street. They continued, until they grew bored.
“Why must we stay here, where there is no resistance? I have heard of a country called America, which has the best military in the world.”
“Then let’s go.”
Getting the image of a woman, and an aluminum baseball bat was easy. Kraysha had the power over the mind, so she could just fool the mind to substitute the desired image. Getting to an airport in near-by Toledo was easy. Actually getting on the plane was hard.
“Ma’am, I’m going to need your passport.” said the ticket checker.
“Yes ma’am. And please hurry. We have a lot of people waiting. There’s a killer in Spain, and everyone wants to get out before they get here.”
Kraysha had to pull some strings in the man’s head, and after a second, he said “You may go through. I am sorry for bothering you.”
Then, Kraysha reached the baggage check. She followed the example of the people in front of her, and put her bag, containing Maledetto, in bat form, on the conveyer belt. Then, she stepped through the metal detector. As soon as she set foot in it, it sounded off, as if she had enough metal to make an airplane on her.
“Ma’am, I’m going to need you to step to the side.” ordered a heavy-set female security guard. Kraysha just stood there, confused. What was that awful beeping sound?
“Ma’am, please step out of line.” Kraysha still did nothing.
“Ma’am, I’m going to ask you one more time. Please step out of line.” Finally, Kraysha obliged.
“Follow me please. And let me tell you, if you try to run, I can shoot you, and you won’t like that.”
Kraysha took one look at the guard’s gun, and thought “I’ll take your word for it.”
After searching for 10 minutes, and finding nothing, the guard finally let her go.
“What could have set off the alarm?” the guard thought to herself.
