Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 10“Here you go, Courtney,” David said as he placed the Knight-Former on the workbench.
“How did it go?” asked Courtney.
“They managed to get away with a crate of Alberloy.”
“Right,” Courtney said, “but how was the exosuit?”
“... Oh,” David replied. “Well, not much damage this time. The little adjustments that you made made the exosuit feel a lot smoother to me, so thank you for that.”
“I will repair the damage, and make more adjustments for you.”
“Thank you, Courtney.”
David left the lab and headed in to the Captain's office. On his desk were two glasses of whiskey.
“Here, David.” The Captain handed a glass to David.
“Thank you, Captain, but...”
“I know they got away with a crate of Alberloy, but you managed to hold them back, and we haven't had good news like this for a while. So here, to being able to beat the Iron Legion, one day.” The Captain
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 9Iron Wolf jumped onto the van, and shouted to the Iron Soldier who was driving, “Go!”
As the van sped along the road, a police car was speeding towards them from the opposite direction with its sirens blaring.
In the police car, David saw the van and the metallic wolf on the top of it. He pressed the brake hard and swung the car around so that it blocked both sides of the road, with the passenger side facing the van.
“Ram it!” Iron Wolf ordered, as he dug his claws into the van's top so that he wouldn't be thrown off when the van hit the police car.
In the police car, David saw that the van was speeding up towards him. “Oh, you have got to be kidding me.”
“Suit up!” David yelled, as he pressed the button on the Knight-Former on his belt and opened the car door to jump out.
The van rammed into the police car.
Both vehicles slid a little before the they stopped. Iron Wolf shook his head to get rid of the dazed feeling from the van's impact
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 8David woke up. He looked around and saw that he was in a hospital.
An older man, probably in his forties, with gray hair and a serious face greeted him. He wore a dress shirt, dress pants, suspenders, and a tie as his outfit, with his police badge proudly on his chest. “Hello David, I am Captain-”
“Where's Alan?” David asked, in a dazed panic.
The Captain paused. Then, he said, “I'm sorry, but Sergeant Alan Winters was a brave man. He died from his injuries fighting that metal monster.”
David's eyes went wide. Then they filled with sorrow and he turned away from the Captain.
“Listen, I am heading a new unit that's being put together to fight this Iron Legion – that's what these metal monsters are calling their group – and I would like you to be part of it.” The Captain took out a card and placed it on the bedside table. “Give me a call if you're interested.”
David offered no response.
The Captain stood up. “I
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 7David sat down at his desk. He picked up one of the pictures on his desk.
In the picture were two smiling cops, one of them a younger David, and the other one was his partner. David looked sorrowfully at the face of his partner, and he said to it, “I went out as Justice Knight for the first time last night, Alan. But... I lost.”
David put the picture back onto the desk and he started flashing back.
Half a year ago, David and his partner, Alan, were in their patrol car. Suddenly, a voice came over the radio, “There is a possible break in happening at the Williams Science Lab at 92 Owen Street! Witnesses have reported that it could be the same metallic creature that was at the break in at the other science lab a few days ago!”
Alan reached down and reported over the radio, “This is patrol car 43, we're heading there right now! We'll be there in five minutes!”
“Roger that. Reinforcements are on the way, be careful!”
At the Williams Science L
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 6David walked into the busy section of the Justice Knight Headquarters that belonged to the Network.
It was a huge room, with computers everywhere. There were five people in the room, going back and forth between the computers and each other. Handing each other documents, talking to each other, or looking at the computer screens together.
The youngest of the people there, a girl with pink-rimmed glasses caught sight of David as he walked into the room. “David! You're alright!”
Everyone stopped to take a look at David, most of them giving him a smile.
The girl with the pink-rimmed glasses rushed over to David and drew him into a tight hug as the others got back to what they were doing.
“Too tight! Sasha, too tight!” David said.
“Oh! Sorry...” Sasha loosened the hug a bit. “It's just that we were watching you fight over the security feed from the building, and it looked like you were hurt really badly!”
“Don't worry, I'm alright. The e
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 5David walked into the Science Lab of the Justice Knight Headquarters. A lone woman wearing a lab coat sat in front of a computer at the counter to the side. On the computer, were the blueprints for the Justice Knight exosuit.
David walked up to the woman and greeted her, “Hi Courtney.”
Courtney sighed. She turned around and greeted David with a tired, “David.”
“Is it that bad?” David asked, noting Courtney's fatigue.
“Take a look for yourself.” Courtney got off her chair and walked over to the work bench in the middle of the room, where the device that was on David's belt laid. She pressed the button on the side of the device and said, "Maintenance."
Squares flew out of the red orb and gently formed the exosuit on the table. The exosuit had scratches all over it; most notable were the five huge gashes in the torso where Iron Wolf had slashed Justice Knight to finish the fight.
“As you can see, the Knight-Former works just fine
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 4David opened his eyes.
He looked around, trying to figure out where he was. The ceiling of the infirmary at the Justice Knight Headquarters greeted him and he found himself in a bed.
The Captain greeted him, “You're awake?”
The Captain was an older man, probably in his forties, with his hair already gray. He had a serious face. He wore a dress shirt, dress pants, suspenders, and a tie as his outfit, with his badge proudly on his chest. The Captain had a real name, but everyone affectionately called him the Captain; even the other captains did.
David sat up and rubbed his eyes, “Yes, sir.”
A younger man, most likely in his mid-twenties, David was currently wearing a hospital gown.
“No need for formalities here, David. How are you feeling?”
David traced his fingers along where Iron Wolf had slashed him across the chest. Finding no trace of the slash, he said, “I... seem to be alright, I think.”
"The exosuit managed to protect you well enoug
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 3The Iron Wolf charged at Justice Knight. As soon at he was close enough, he swiped at Justice Knight's head with his left hand, claws extended.
Justice Knight ducked and manged to escape the claws. Quickly, Iron Wolf used his right hand to slash at Justice Knight, forcing the knight to jump back.
As soon as Justice Knight landed on his feet after his dodge, he threw a punch with his right fist, aimed at Iron Wolf's head.
Before the punch could connect though, Iron Wolf grabbed the incoming fist by the wrist and pushed it away. Quickly taking advantage of the opening that he made, the wolf uppercut the knight vertically up the chest with his claw.
Sparks of damage shot out of Justice Knight's chest as the claw slashed him. He staggered back, with a hand to his chest. Not giving him time to recover, Iron Wolf charged at him again and slashed at his head.
Justice Knight managed to duck under the claw. Reacting quickly, he jumped up and drove his right knee into Iron Wolf's abdomen, causin
Night of the Iron Wolf - Part 2“If even bullets can't hurt us, what makes you think your exosuit will stand a chance?” Iron Wolf boasted.
Justice Knight unclenched his fist, and then he clenched it again, “I guess we'll just have to see.”
Running as fast as the fastest humans could run, the Iron Wolf charged at Justice Knight. As soon as he was close enough, the wolf pulled his right claw back, then stabbed at Justice Knight's chest.
Justice Knight twisted the left side of his body back. The wolf's claw missed and went under the knight's left arm, which was already pulled back. Justice Knight threw the left side of his body forward, launching his punch. His punch managed to land on the right side of Iron Wolf's head, causing the wolf to stagger back.
Iron Wolf reached up and felt the spot where he was punched. Then, he laughed an excited laugh. “I haven't felt pain since I became a cyborg!”
Justice Knight clenched his left hand into a fist and flicked it open again. Then, he comme
