Shadows Chapter 14
Alec slowly opened his eyes. Was he in hell? No. It was far
worse. Here he was, captured by Gero and his minions. He did
not have a clue what was in store for him, but whatever it
was, he knew that it was not good at all. Where was he? Appeared
to be a cell of sorts, he considered. Cast in darkness, he
could just about make out some light filtering through a tiny
window above him. He had to get out of here. Gathering all
of the energy he could manage, he focused it into a point
and blasted it at the wall. Or to be more specific he tried
to. For some reason he could not control his ki, or even sense
it. It was as if it had simply disappeared.
"Well,well,well is this Alec I am addressing", came
a cruel and heartless voice as a figure entered Alec's prison.
"Yes and who the **** are you?", Alec shot back.
This was all just too much, "What have you done to me???"
"Now, now. That is not a particularly polite way to address
your ruler", Alec peered through the blackness and just
made out who was interograting him. A tall thin man in his
fifties, with greying hair and mustache, his eyes hinted at
a dark soul long forsaken. It was none other than Dr Gero.
"Gero! Murderer! You killed my brother!", Alec screamed
and charged him, tears straming down his face.
"Hahaha. I would watch yourself...", Gero paused
to shove Alec back into the cell, "...If you don't want
to go the same way as him"
"*******! What have you done to me?!? Why am I so weak?",
Alec pulled himself back up.
"Ah yes. This cell contains a ki neutraliser. It locks
onto your energy signature and produces an anti form of it,
making you as weak as a kitten", Gero laughed, walked
forward and slapped Alec with the back of his hand, which
threw him across the room.
"No!", Alec collasped against the wall. Nothing
he could do would make any difference now.
"You may be wondering why you are still alive",
Gero smirked, "I don't like long conversations, so I'll
cut to the chase. You know where Alker is. We want him. He
is...important to us"
"You want...?", Alec was taken aback, he did not
realise that Alker was wanted this badly for Gero himself
to get involved. He paused then stared back at Gero, his eyes
burning fiercely in resistance against this tyrant and murderer,
"I would never tell you, you ****! Even if I knew, you
would have to kill me first!"
"Oh dear. That was not the correct reply..."
3 months later...
"AGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!", now it was Alker's turn to
attempt Kaio-Ken. The previous day he had mastered normal
Kaio-ken, which increases power by a factor of a half. Now
he was trying a triple Kaio-Ken, which triples his ki level.
Muscles buldging, eyes wide open, he had done it. A faint
red aura surrounded him, indicating the technique that he
"Excellent!", Sami-Kaio praised, "You seemed
to have mastered it now. Remember that this move does put
a harsh strain on your body, so the time spent in this state
should be minimal. Similarily you shouldn't attempt too high
a KK level"
"Thanks Kaio!", Alker smiled. He had done it. Finally
after almost three months, which involved chasing monkeys,
bashing giant insects named Gregory with hammers and of course
learning Kaio-Ken he had now mastered the most powerful technique
"Well done Alker!", Jake clapped somewhat cheekily,
"It shouldn't be long before I get there as well"
"Hah! You're weak both of you", Ferefire taunted,
"That party trick that Alker has just done, I did almost
a month ago"
"Well you are stronger than both of us", Jake replied
honestly, "When you came here you did have a power level
of about 100,000 anyway. Yet i would estimate that whilst
your power level has only increased by a factor of a half,
mine has increased from 4000 to about 15,000 whilst Alker's
has increased by even more"
"What that snob? I highly doubt it", Ferefire replied
somewhat angered by Alker's progress.
"Boys, boys!", Sami-Kaio interupted, "Calm
down! If you feel that way Ferefire, why don't you spar with
Alker? Then you will see how much he has improved"
"I'm up for it. Don't know about him though...",
Alker replied, eager as ever to disprove Ferefire.
"Let's do IT!", and with that Ferefire hurled himself
at Alker. His first couple of blows were efficently blocked
by Alker, who had almost immediatly powered up to a double
Kaio Ken in response to this attack. Ferefire was slightly
surprised when Alker actually managed to break through his
defences slight a blow to his torso.
"Heheh", Ferefire jumped back and gave a wicked
grin, "If that's the best you can do, you might as well
give up now my friend"
"NO!", yelled Alker and dashed toward Ferefire again,
who began to power up slightly to deal with the threat. Ferefire
easily blocked every single punch that was thrown and floored
Alker with a high powered kick into the stomach, which winded
"OWWW!", Alker groaned, that did it. He was determined
to beat Ferefire, to pummel his smug face right into the ground,
"Triple Kaio-ken!", he yelled, driving his body
up to the maximum possible level it could possibly sustain.
Screaming, he again launched himself back at Ferefire. What
had previously been a fairly easy fight was now more evenly
matched, with Ferefire only just being able to block Alker's
attacks. Several times a few got through. Eventually one smacked
Ferefire directly in the face. He flew back from the sheer
force of the impact, clutching his nose. It was broken, blood
streaming down his face.
"AGHH!!! You *******! You will pay", Ferefire was
absolutly furious now, "Kaio-Ken!", now it was Ferefire's
turn to increase his power level using this miracoulous technique.
Peering over, Alker estimated that his power level was now
in excess of 200,000. Oh ****! Almost immediatly Ferefire
zauzokened behind Alker and dealt him a blow to his back.
Falling to ground, Alker rolled slightly and forced himself
back up. This was not good. He did know how much longer he
could keep this Kaio ken level up. His body was starting to
"AND THAT'S JUST A WARM UP!!!", Ferefire yelled
as he began to charge a energy blast.
"NO FEREFIRE!", Kaio yelled, "I said no energy
"Hahaha", Ferefire laughed dementedly, "If
he is as good as you say, he will block this one"
And with that Ferefire launched the beam of energy at Alker.
As Alker watched the ball approaching him, he knew that he
would most likely die, unless he did something drastic. He
had no other choice...
"Kaio Ken times five", he winched as his aura was
almost doubled in intensity. It was now or never. Gathering
all the energy in his body he prepared for the beam...
"MASENKO!", he yelled. His beam flew towards Ferefire
and in a blinding flash they collided. This had gone too far.
With this kind of energy one of them were going to die. Unless...
Alker charged up another ball of ki and drew all of the remaining
energy out of the masenko and into it. Ferefire's beam was
almost upon him now. With all the energy left in his body
he flung the ball which maneourved the beam away from himself
and Ferefire into the abyss that was either side of Snake
way. Exhausted, he collasped onto the grass.
"That was better than I expected", Ferefire stated,
his demeanor now totally changed, he was impressed, "Practice
a bit more and come back when you are a bit of a challenge"
"Huh?", just when Alker thought he had got Ferefire
figured he was proved how little he actually knew about the
Finally after another week, they were ready to leave. Sami-Kaio
had assured that Alec and Hannah were still okay, but neither
Alker, Jake nor Ferefire were willing to chance another day.
Soon they would rescue their friends. Soon they would be free.
