Even with her under his mercy, Naomi only gave minimal info to Adrian, but it was enough for him to work with.
After the getting the information he needed from Naomi, Adrian had left her there for the rest of her puny little mind to break. Little did he know how fast she would recover, and was be using a radio to signal in the thousands of mercenaries she had hired to take care of Adrian if she had failed. As Adrian made his way to the bike he stole, only for it explode in front of him. Where he stood, Adrian saw many armed, masked men walking towards him; he knew where this was going...
Mercenary:"We're the best, Oaks! You'll never get passed us with the city being ours!"
Agony:"Then this city will be burning with nightmares."
And so, Adrian fought his way through the army of mercenaries, making his getaway as soon as he can. Though, they were still on his tail and managed to try and surround Adrian every chance the got. These mercenaries were relentless at trying to kill Adrian, grabbing onto him and trying to him apart. Adrian would not be taken down easily, breaking away through all of them and bringing back the black ooze he had just blasted Naomi with, plastering all of these guys with the disgusting stuff. They did managed to tear apart the jacket he wore, almost leaving him topless. But luckily, he managed to steal one of theirs, now having a side zipper on as he escaped... Continuing to move through the shadows, Adrian wondered how he was going to make through all of this with those guys covering the entire city. He's not exactly invincible even with his power, Naomi made sure of that. But that doesn't matter, he continued on to where he needed to go, not letting anything stop him. He decided to stop for a moment, sitting at the top of an apartment building and looking over the city. At the moment, his vision had changed, he started to see things outside of the fabric of reality, things that were a bit...demonic. He could see the dark energy that was coursing through him coursing through the city, sustain it under the chaos. The site of it...made Adrian...uncomfortable. But this was cut short when the shadowy figure that resembled Adrian came back and started to shake him...
???:"(demonic voice)Don't go losing your head on us, Oaks. We only have a few moments until they're onto us. But you see it now, don't you? The very chaos we're meant to control is now strengthening this city in all it's dark influence. Soon, there a hundred demons tomorrow, then a million more next week, ready to ravage this whole city and move on to the next. But you can stop this Adrian, and you've already began. You just started a war....now, you have to win. We're still doing things our way of course, there's no other really choice, it's the best and only way we got. Now with those fools have control over the demons, you'll need our help more than ever."
Adrian:"...Why do you care?"
???:"We don't, but it's our job to keep balance and control over the demons of this world. It we can't stop them, nothing will. It's already gotten worse with them unlocking the powers of the demons to use against you and anyone else in their way. Everyone, innocent or guilty, now have their lives at stake. They must be stopped, and punished for their crimes. If they want hell on earth...we'll give it to them."
That conversation was cut short when something was shot at Adrian, it was like some kind of blue fire. Adrian looked up to see someone on a higher roof, wearing a padded vest, white shirt and black pants and shoes, and the fire was coming from his hand and blue steam coming off of him. He jumped down and Adrian face to face...
???:"We'll leave you to your work now, Oaks."
Adrian:"Mmm...So apparently, you guys are all just getting powers, now? Friend of Shrapnel, I presume?"
Slick:"Call me Slick. And yes, courtesy of Naomi and her experience with the supernatural. You know, to think that someone like you can actually be able to take down someone like her, it's almost unbelievable. Then again, she probably went easy on you, thinking it would be easy to kill you. I won't make the same mistakes."
Adrian:"I wouldn't be too sure about that. They always make that mistake."
Not saying anything else, the guy named Slick moved faster than Adrian could react. Punching him with incredible, unnatural strength, Adrian found himself flying from the roof. Landing on the road, cars began to surround him and more of those arm mercenaries showed up...
Slick:"Well...I don't. In fact, I never work alone! Rasgue o bastardo à parte!"
As soon he said that, Adrian had started to move fast again so that he wouldn't get shot at. Practically warping from here to there, Adrian had managed to beat down all of the men and the purple fume coming off of him was becoming ever more flowing, like it was being empowered...
Slick:"Guess it's my turn then."
Slick began firing his blue fire towards Adrian, who couldn't seem to dodge all of it. Then heading down to the road himself, Slick hit the road with his fist and caused a seismic blasted and headed straight towards Adrian. This ended having Adrian being blasted away by Slick, but he wasn't finished with him as he soon moved close to him, ripped a street light from the ground and swung it towards Adrian like a bat. Adrian couldn't react fast, but he did manage to catch the street light when it had hit him. Pulling it from his hand, Adrian swung and hit Slick in the face with it, but didn't stop there as he grabbed onto him, slammed him against a car and began beating the crap out of him....
Agony:"Enough of this! We're doing this my way!"
Slick:"Suit yourself, stupid ass! Explodir seus cérebros por toda a estrada!"
Another car was coming in hot, firing while also attempting to run over Adrian. But this was in vain as Adrian turned his attention to it and caught it with both his hands. Something then changed about Adrian, the fumes turned from purple to pure black and began to flow like fire. Beginning to lift the car above his head, Adrian turned once more over to Slick, who was about to recover as he saw Adrian raising the car, knowing what he was going to do...
Agony:"Here, let me give you a ride."
Taking the car, Adrian smashed it over Slick in attempt to kill him and it seemed that way when Slick looked pretty screw to Adrian. As he began to walk away, he got a little startled to see the car soon flying by him and smashing into the side of a building...
Slick:"Leaving so soon?"
Slick now looked pretty crazed, having a psychotic look in his eye and now having some blue liquid dripping from his room. Once again, at top speed, Slick headed straight for Adrian, but he was much more ready this time. Their brawl could be felt all around as the two seemed to be working each other over to their limits...or so they thought. Little did Slick or even Adrian know that Adrian himself was getting stronger by the minute, with dark energy building up inside of him and soon being unleashed at the scene. The dark energy around around the entire city was now be absorbed by Adrian and making him stronger. The black fumes started to look and act like black fire as Adrian was soon starting to finish Slick off. Out of nowhere, a black blade had started to construct itself from Adrian's arm as he soon swung it and impaled Slick with it. In pain, Slick took a good look at Adrian, his eyes no glowing red, the black fire covering his entire body and what started to look like black horn beginning to construct themselves in Adrian's head. Even at the mercy of the man who stood before him, Slick held a smile on his face and laughed...
Slick:"Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh........You'll just be a footnote...in the history of hell."
Agony:"Maybe...but right now, one of our flames will be extinguished tonight. Not gonna be mine."
Slick:"Maybe not...but won't be mine either."
Raising his fist, Slick broke off the blade and pulled it out of him. Keeping that ugly look on face, Slick soon did what Adrian did and the blue fumes around him soon turned to blue fire. Their fight continued and lit up the night, as they soon took to the skies and they were both relentless in trying to kill each other. They found each other on the top of the roof of another building, this one being more of a skyscraper. Little did they know that this battle of their was drawing the attention of the police, as soon the whole building was being surrounded by police. Slick pulls out a gun and Adrian stood where he was, not making a move...
Slick:"I never had a taste for this...but I must admit how thrilling this truly is. You had to make this hard on yourself by not staying dead. You got quite the spine, I'll give you that. But you need to learn when to quit."
Adrian:"You need to learn to shut up."
Very soon, a police and news helicopter showed up and shined their spotlight on the two. Meanwhile, at Chris and Tally's house, the twins, along with Kelly were soon watching what was happening at the tower...
Chris:"He looks...kinda different now."
Back at the tower, Adrian and Slick continued their exploding battle. As Slick tried to show Adrian, he managed to block it away. Eventually Adrian managed to hit the gun out of Slick and the two where then at each other's throats, literally. Slick kept his hands firmly on around Adrian's neck while Adrian himself had one of his thumbs gouging at Slick's eye. That was cut short when a warning shot was fired from the police chopper. When the broke off, Adrian did more damage to Slick, seeing how the blue liquid was now coming from his eye as well...
Police:"YOU ARE COMPLETELY SURROUNDED. SURRENDER YOURSELVES!"
Slick:"Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. (looks at Adrian) I couldn't think of how this could get any better! I promise you that once you're finished, we'll be going after that slut angel of yours too."
Agony:"If you ever..."
Slick:"Don't worry to much about, Oaks. I'll be sure to take care of her just fine."
Pissed, Adrian head to Slick to finish him off, but Slick ran to the police copter and then suddenly leaped through the window...
Police:"(falls out of copter)"
Slick:"Agora você está ferrado, Oaks!"
Adrian:"What is it with this guy and speaking Portuguese?"
With Slick under control of the chopper, Adrian moved quickly so he wouldn't get riddle with bullets. Seeing the gun that Slick had, Adrian quickly picked it up and tried to aim as best as he can. Firing the gun, he aim directly towards Slick and a few shots managed to get him. At this point, Slick was pretty much worked over, and at a final attempt to finish Adrian, he charged the helicopter straight towards him. At top speed, Adrian leaped through and grabbed onto Slick, pulling themselves out of the copter as it then began to spin out of control before crashing. Adrian now had Slick where he wanted him, with one final punch to make his stay down for good measure. As much as he wanted to make sure he was finished for good, Adrian knew he couldn't, nor will he ever be like him. Concentrating on this, the black fires that covered Adrian turned back into purple and brightened up a lot more...
Agony:"Time to face your sins."
Opening his mouth, Adrian breathed out purple flames right into Slick's face. It wasn't killing him, but was turning all the wrong he ever did against him. In matter of seconds, Slick now looked pretty broken, having his face now looking smoky and the purple fumes coming from his eyes and mouth. It was done, Slick was finished and Adrian began to walk away, but after all he's been through, it seems as if now he was succumbing to his wounds as he began to loose balance. He found himself on his knees at the edge of the roof, seeing the whole world front of him. As he was about to lean forward, the shadow stood in front of him once more...
???:"You cannot die! You cannot give in so easily! This will not stop you, we made sure of that! Don't you dare fall on us!!"
Adrian:"We all gotta fall someday...but I'm not giving up...you'll see."
And so, Adrian casted himself from the building with the whole world seeing him. Kelly was looking scarred to see her loved one fall, but was then caught by surprise. Adrian's body soon ignited with the purple flames, and was consumed by the fire until he suddenly disappeared. Kelly wasn't sure what just happened, but the moment was cut short when there was a knock on the door. Kelly went over to go see who it was, only to see a man in with dark long hair, a black button vest and a blade by his side...
Kelly:"W-W-Who are you?"
Shrapnel:"Won't matter once I'm done with you...and Oaks as well."
Kelly:"...Oh god, you're-"
Kelly:"Tally, Chris, run!"
The three tried to run upstairs but were then cut off when they saw fire coming Shrapnel's mouth. They stood still as the man came up to them...
Shrapnel:"Soon, I'll have his heart...then I'll break it."
