Kingsley, Cayenne, Ryu, and Raliegh were trudging through the taklamakan desert, with the blazing sun beating on their head. "This heats unbearable. I feel like I'm gonna faint." Ryu said. "Quit whining you pussy. It's not that bad." Cayenne said. "It's 107 degrees! If we don't find water soon, we're gonna die." Kingsley said. "Says you. I can keep going for several more hours...but I think we do need to find shelter." Raleigh said. "Getting woozy, Pedrosa?" Cayenne said. "I'm just concerned about Ryu. He's starting to hallucinate." Raleigh said. "Very funny bro. Hey, I think I see something up ahead.". "Yeah, right." Cayenne said. "Wait, I think I see something too." Kingsley said. From the distance, it looked like a bunch of buildings. It was a town in the middle of the desert.
After entering the town, they found a bar where they finally found water. "Ahh. I got to be honest. I didn't think we were gonna make it." Kingsley said after taking a long swig of water. "Maybe someone in here knows where the light crystal is." Ryu said. Looking around, they saw what look to be lowlife thugs and scum from all around town. "I'll bet none of these assholes know how to speak english." Cayenne said. "Only one way to find out." Kingsley said. He got the attenion of the bartender and said "Hey um,I got a question to ask.". "What do you want to know buddy?" the bartender said. "Oh thank god, you speak english. Um, we were wanting to know where you can find a light crystal?". Suddenly, everyone in the bar stopped and looked at the crew. All of them with dirty looks on their faces. "Son, You best stop looking where your at right now, or else." one of the thugs said, pointing a gun at Kingsley face. Cayenne quickly punched them man into a wall. Everyone in the bar then pulled out guns and started to fire them at our heroes. While Raleigh, Ryu, and Kingsley ducked under the bar table, Cayennestarted flying around, taking out some of the gunmen. Raleigh pulled out his plasma whip and grabbed one of the thugs guns and started to fire.
After the fire fight was over, Cayenne grabbed one of the thugs that were unarmed (and still alive) and held him on the ground, asking him "What the fuck was all that about!? You trying to tell us something or what!?". Do you honestly understand what your trying to pursue?" he said. Raleigh pointed the gun that he got from the thug and said "Start talking.". "Alright! Alright! ...A light crystal is one of the most precious materials in the world.". "Even more precious than rhodium?". Everyone looked at Kingsley in confusion. "The precious chemical element?...It's used in cars and jewelry?...Am I seriously the only one who pays attention in science class?". "Anyway, you can't just walk in and ask where to get some. People who try and shoot you here for that. Hell, a single ounce of the stuff can go up for 30,000 dollars. "Really!" Raileigh said in a smooth tone. "Raleigh, I swear. If you plan on running off with the crystals, I'm gonna kick your bazilian japanese mixed ass." Cayenne said. Raleigh got up and stopped pointing his gun at the thug and said to her "Bitch please. You think I'm afraid of you?". Both of them were not paying attention to the thug as he started to slowy slip away. "Guys." Ryu said. "We need it to make Chloe a new goddess stone!" Cayenne said. "Guys." Kingsley said. Ryu started to run after the thug. "You think I give a shit about my bro's ex?". "Guys!" Kingsley shouted."What!?" both of them shouted. "The thugs getting away.".
All of them were chasing after they're only lead, with Ryu hot on the thugs trail. They gave chase until they cornered him into a dead end. As they slowy approached them, the thug was starting to panic. Kingsley tried to calm him down by saying "Easy. Just calm down. We won't do anything to you if you just tell us where the crystals are.". "Speak for yourself. I say we beat the information out of him." Raleigh said. The thug pulled out a small ball and threw it on the ground. The ball made a big flash that blinded our heroes. When the light cleared, the thug was gone. "Shit, he got away. What do we do now?" Cayenne said. "Look on the wall!" Kingsley said. All of them looked on the wall and it said in yellow spray paint "Don't mess with the desert snakes!!!". "Is that like a gang name?" Kingsley shouted. "That dumbass! He just gave us the info we need to start searching. He obviously know something about the crystals. All we have to do is shake off some of the locals and they might tell us all we need. Come on Ryu." Raleigh said. Kingsley looked around and said "Where is Ryu?". "Are you stupid? He's obviously..." Raleigh was saying, but stopped talking when he finally realized that Ryu was not with them. "Where did the little squirt go?" he said.
The thug took Ryu to a hidden base and presented him to his leader. "This one was sniffing around for the light crystals with three others, boss. Whaddya wanna do with him?". Ryu looked up and saw the boss of the gang wore regular desert attire, with the only notable accesory being a big straw hat. "Who are you?" Ryu asked. "Well first off, I am Saguaro. I am the leader of the desert snakes. A gang that basically runs this hovel of a town. And I-" the man said, but stopped when he heard slurping. He turned to the right and saw a man drinking a slushie. He was making a constant slurping noise. "Jin, it's empty put the- (the slurping gets louder) Jin, your not gonna get anymore out of it. It's-(slurping gets more load) It's not gonna...It's gonna come out, just- (slurping gets louder) just throw it...Jin, throw the god damn slurpie away!" Saguaro said. "Alright, jesus" Jin said in a lazy tone, then walked of. the leader turned back to Ryu and said "I'm so sorry. He's a new inturn working here...So how do you know about the light crystal?". "I can't let them know about the goddess stone. They'll never let me go." Ryu thought, then said "I'm not telling you anything!". "...(sigh) You know, I hate doing this to new guests, but the light crystals aren't something you just here of. If you won't tell me what you know, I'm gonna have to force it out of you. Gentleman, take him to the torture chamber." Saguaro said.
His men sent Ryu to a small dark room, chaining his hand between his legs. They taped earphones to his ear. "I feel a little sorry for you buddy. This is the same kind of audio torture the CIA uses." one of the men said. They finally left him alone in darkness. The poor boy was waiting in nervous anticipation about what kind of horrifying, unbearable noises that could come out of the earbuds. Then the music played, and all the fear just vanished as he heard the "I love you" Barney theme. "Wait really? This what the CIA uses to torture terrorists? ...This actually kind of relaxing." Ryu said to himself.
Cayenne, Kingsley, and Raleigh were going around the town, try to get information about the desert snakes. While Cayenne and Raleigh favored more aggresive tactics to gather intell, Kingsley simply asked around. Ironically, he got the most information out of all of them. Izt lead them to a castle on the outskirts of town. As they walked up to the gates Cayenne said "An old abandoned castle! That should have been fucking obvious! Why didn't we come here first?". "Well to be fair, we've only been in town for about 3 and a half hours." Kingsley said. Cayenne was about to punch the door down, when Kingsley stopped him saying "Wait! It could be a trap.". "You think I give a shit about any traps.". "All I'm say is to stop and think for a second. The guy who got away is most likely in league with the snakes, right? And they have Ryu hostage.". "What's you point Spicer?" Raleigh said. "All I'm saying is that it might now be wise to just storm in the place. The thug know what we look like and that Ryu is with us. So they might threaten to kill him.". "You got a plan then or what?" Cayenne said. Kingsley stepped back and took a long look at the castle. He noticed that the building showed it's age with little cracks on the wall. "This castle is pretty old. I'm guessing it's not technlogically sound. We could sneak in, assuming that they don't have any security besides guards. I think I see a window on the left tower over there."Kingsely explained. "How do we find Ryu then if all were doing is sneaking around, smartass." Raleigh said. "Remember how you were holding up people earlier? I think now might be the appropriate time for that.".
So they entered through the tower window and snuck around the castle. They stopped when they noticed a guard that was all alone. They took this oppertunity to capture the guard, disarm him, and tie him up somewhere where no one would see them.
Raleigh pointed his gun in his face and said to the guy "Scream and I blow you brains out.". "What do you want?" the guard said in terror. "Don't worry, we're just gonna ask a couple questions. First off, you maybe holding a friend of ours prisoner. Do you know where you might be keeping him?". "Well, he might be being held in the torture chamber. It's near the prison cells in the right of the castle.". "Good. Now one more question. We're looking for something called light crystals. You might know where we might find some?" Cayenne said. "Well, I'm really supossed to tell you..." the guard said, trying not to speak, but continued when he heard the gun pointed to his head cock, saying "...but we recently scored a small amount of them. They're being kept in the basement.". "Alright, Cayenne and I'll try and find the light crystals. While Raleigh, you try and find Ryu.". "What do we do with this poor bastard?" Cayenne, pointing at the tied up guard. "Well, we can't excactly let him go..." Kingsley said. Raleigh pointed his gun at the guard, but Kingsley spoke up and said "Hold up, I think I have some duct tape in here, we can tape his mouth shut.".
So after taping the guard up, they split up. Raleigh sneaked around and came across prison cells. He kept walking until he came across a door at the end of the room. Upon opening it, he saw his brother chained up to a chair, weakly singing with shaky breath "I love you. You love me. We're a happy family...". Raleigh took the chains and earbuds off Ryu. "Ryu, bro, what happened?". "With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you..." Ryu kept singing. Raleigh slapped his brother out of his trace. He shook his head and Ryu said "Raleigh. Is that you?". "Yeah, what they do to you?". "It was awful. They taped earbud in my ear and made me listen to the I love you Barney theme song on loop for 3 hours straight!". He saw that Raleigh was snickering at him and said "It's not funny!". "It's pretty funny man. Also only for three hours? Bro, that's weak.". Ryu sighed and said "Let's just get out of her already...". "Hold up. First we gotta get those crystals. I still plan on getting rich.". "Your still on that? Come on Raleigh. I just wanna go home...". "We ain't leaving until I get some of those crystals. Come on, they're in the basement!" Raleigh said, then ran out of the room. "...I wonder how expensive therapy is?".
Kingsley and Cayenne walked in a suspiciosly empty hallway. "Cayenne, their something that's been bugging me lately." Kingsley said. "Kingsley, for the last time. That gift you got Renee was fine.". "No, not that. It's about my mentor, Mrs. Blossom.". "Hold on, your mentor is my aunt. What the hell does she even teach you?". "Advance science engineering. Anyway, she's going on about this secret project and how it'll help the world. But that's all she'll tell me. I was wondering if you knew what it might be.". "Hell no.". "Ah well, it was wishful thinkful thinking any-" Kingsley said, but was interupted when they saw a bunch of armed guard with the guard they tied up now free. "That's them! They're after the crystals! Kill em!" the guard said. Before they could fire, Cayenne quickly punch their lights out using super speed. When she was done, the teenage girl heard the alarm blaring. "Aw man, now they all know we're here.". "Hey, I say let em come. I'll mow them down. Come on!" Cayenne said. Then they ran ahead.
Raleigh and Ryu heard the alarm blaring and Raleigh said "Damn it! I knew we should have killed that guard.". After hearing som guards coming, Ryu turned his attention toward a door beside him. "In there!" Ryu said. Both of them ran inside and the guards passed through the halls. "Alright. I think they're gone." Raleigh said. "Hey look." Ryu said. Looking behind them, they saw a spiral staircase. "I think this might lead to the basement." Ryu said. "No shit sherlock. Get moving.". They went down the stairs and went into a dark room. Upon finding the lights, the boy saw a small pile of glowing white crystals. "You think these might be the light crystal?' Ryu said. "No doubt about it bro! Now empty your backpack. We're gonna stuff as much of these things as we can into it as we can!" Raleigh said. "Don't we only need one?" Ryu questioned. "Well yeah, but what's the harm in grabbing more than one. Now let go before more guards come.". Both boys ran back up with all the crystals in tow.
As they ran across the hall, they noticed that less and less guards were appearing. They soon ran into Kingsley and Cayenne. "Guess what we found bitches!?" Raleigh said, then showed off the crystals. "Wait, you got the crystals? I thought they were in the basement." Kingsley said. "They were. Why, what where you guys doing?" Ryu asked. "That guy must have mislead use. Oh well, he's dead now." Cayenne said.
So all of them left the castle through the front gate. As they were about to leave town, they ran into Saguaro. "Hey there, the name Saguaro. Leader of the desert snakes. You killed my entire gang and stole my shit. I was wondering if you could answer one question for me...What the fuck?". "What kind of stupid name is Saguaro?" Cayenne said. "Isn't that a type of cactus?" Kingsley said. "I-" Saguaro was about it say, but Raleigh interupted him saying "Dude! Your named after a cactus? Your parents must have hated you.". "Why!? Just why!? I was running a good racket in this dump for over 10 years! Then when I finally gathered enough light crystal to live in luxary for the rest of my life, you assholes just waltz in and try to take everything that I worked so hard for! Do you even know what those crystals can do!?" Saguaro ranted. "Um...do you?" Ryu said hesitantly. "...The mystical light crystal can be used to create powerful god like weapon. If you have even a small amount of the stuff, you got the supernatural market cornered. Not to mention the underground drug market.". "Excuse me!" Kingsley said. "Oh yeah, they can be crushed up and used as a powerful super drug. Apperantly, it can give you such a high that you can see dead people. Now I know you have my loot, so hand it over and or else.". "Or else, what? We have you completly outnumbered and outmatched. I tore through your entire gang like fucking tissue paper. What the hell do you think you can do?" Cayenne boasted.
Saguaro took a deep breath, then wings the same color as the sorching desert sprouted from his back. "...shit.".
Suddenly, big crocodile made of sand grabbed Cayenne and pulled her down to the earth. "Cayenne!" Kingsley shouted. Raleigh fired several rounds at Saguaro,but instead of blood, sand came out of his body. The holes left behind by the bullets filled right back up. The sand man started blasting sand at them, and they ran off in different directions. Saguaro created three big snakes made of sand to persue them.
Raleigh ran through a market street as a a sand snake gave chase. He tried in vain to shoot it, but ran out of bullet. "Damn it!". He tried using his plasma whip, but it malfunctioned. The snake was inching closer. Raleigh grabbed a nearby cane and used it to flip on a horizantal pole that was sticking on a building and land on the snakes back. It was like we was surfing through the streets on it.
Ryu ran for his life as the snake was hot on his trail. The snake chased him to a dead end. when the wall came to him, he ran up it. The snake collided the wall but was not stopping. Ryu landed on the snake as it was still moving and ran across its body to avoid smacking against the wall. He jumped off when reaching the tail. A gaint hole was left behind him. Ryu ran off before the snake could come back.
Kingsley was running through the streets with a snake closing in. The was digging in his backpack, saying "Come on. There's gotta be something in here that I packed that can help me out!". He pulled out a weird looking gun and said "My freeze gun! I forgot I packed this.". He took the gun and fired a ball of ice at the snake. Upon contact, the snake was freezing. It kept freezing until it was frozen solid. When Kingsley walked up and touched it, the snake broke into tiny shards of ice.
Saguaro was flying high above the sky. He could see the entire town. He commanded the sand around the town to build a wall around it, sealing everyone inside. "Do all of you understand now! I can control the very sand around you! This is my dominion! You can't escape!". Something flew out of the ground and went in front of the man. It was Cayenne covered in sand. "Who said anything aboat escpaing?" she said in confidence, then charged at the sand man.
Raleigh was still surfing on the snake. But when he saw ice was starting to consume it, he jumped off in the nick of time. 'Hey!" Kingsley shouted. Raleigh approached him and said "What the hell was that?". "That my friend was an insta-freeze ice ball from my freeze gun.". "We trudged through the baron heat of the desert and you had a fucking ice beam the whole fucking time!?". "I just realized that I packed it.". Raleigh took the gun away, then heard his brother screaming behind him. Looking back, he saw that Ryu was being held high in the open mouth of a snake by a strap on his backpack that got stuck on one of the fangs. He pointed the gun at the snake and shouted at him "Ryu! Jump down!". Raleigh fired and Ryu had to let go of the backpack to jump down. "Not without the backpack!" Raleigh shouted. But it was too late, the ice ball froze the snake along with the backpack. "Damnit!". "Calm down Raleigh. We can probably get the crystals from the snake when the ice melts." Kingsley said. "Right, right...my fortune is safe. Right in a frozen sand snakes mouth..." Raleigh said, calming himself down. The elevated snake head broke and crashed into the ground. Raleigh was about to shout, but a female voice came out of nowhere that did it for him shouting "Shit!".
The three boys looked up and saw Cayenne and Saguaro fighting in the air. Every punch she landed in him simply passed through. "She can't land a single hit! What do we do." Ryu said. Raleigh tried to shoot the sand man with the freeze gun, but the ice balls nowhere near reached him. "Spicer, why can't this thing shoot further?" Raleigh said. "It's just a prototype. But maybe we can use something to launch the ice further." Kingsley said. They looked around for anything they could use. Ryu spotted a metal pole and had an idea. Grabbing it, Ryu rana little back and said "Raleigh! Shoot it at me!". Ryu took a batting position and Raleigh understood what his brother was trying. He shot an ice ball and Ryu hit it, sending it fly at Saguaro.
The ball hit the sand man and he said "What the hell was that!", lookng around, wandering what hit him. He did not notice that his body was freezing until it was too late. He tried in vain to streach his body out to avoid the ice crawling on him, repeatedly saying "No.". But soon the ice engulfed him completly and fell the the ground, breaking into several shards.
Raleigh was staring at where the ice broke in saddness and said "My money...my fortune...all gone. Fuck...". Ryu approached to comfort his brother, but saw a small light crystal still left in the rubble. He picked up the crystal and said "Bro, look. One made it.". Raleigh swipped it from his brothers hand and said "Aw hell yeah! Maybe I can at least buy a ferrari with this.", then Cayenne swiped it from him, saying "Gimme that, Pedrosa. You are not selling this for a fucking car. We're using this to make another stone for Chloe. Did you forget that already?". "Guys..." Kingsley said. "Bitch, gimme that back. Else I'm gonna-". Raileigh shouted. "Guys!" Kingsley shouted. "What!" both Cayenne and Raleigh said. Kingsley pointed to an angry mob that was in front of them. "You wrecked our town!" one of them said. "Hell are you all talking about? We didn't-" Raleigh said, but Ryu interupted him by poking at him and point to all the damage to the buildings and streets. "Tch, huh...". "I say we lynch em!" another person shouted. "I think we might have overstayed our welcome." Kingsley said.
With Saguaro gone, the walls around town fell apart. Our heroes were ran out of town with a light crystal in hand.
