I heard clicking as I walked down a deserted alley in the lustful city of New York, I didn't make too much of a note of it considering a busy town and hearing a small noise wasn't too uncommon. I continued walking, my black cloak drifting around me in the slight wind and my hair furled around me, its black blending with the background and the red standing out as it extended in front of me. I looked around and kept walking, then there was a crash to my left and I looked that way quickly to see an alley cat had knocked down a garbage dumpster lid, I looked and there was a mirror, my blue eyes staring back at me, they were always so radiant and that's what people always saw with me first, they stood out like the moon in the sky. I shook my head and continued towards home, I reached the outskirt of the town where it wasn't so congested. I came to an open area and I heard more clicking. I began to start to suspect something and I looked around a bit, but I didn't see anything.
On a high building a Predator perched looking down upon a girl, she was so average looking and didn't seem to be anything special. He clicked irately thinking to himself. 'For the love of a pauk-de, I thought I was an elite, this should be a rookie mission, it's just a human girl. Oh well just get it done and get back home and get some trophies.' He tapped his left wrist computer and made sure it was really the right girl, hard to not mistake her, black and red hair, blue eyes, black cloak. He shook his head and jumped down to some lower buildings and followed her waiting for the moment to attack.
I got deeper into the open area and then there was a crash behind me like a large body hitting the ground. I whipped around and there was nothing there, but the air seemed to blur as if there was a heated element there. I threw a fire ball at it quickly and there was buzzing and sounds of electrical circuiting. I watched the spot carefully but then I saw electrical currents pass through the air as it moved to the side and I followed it with my eyes. Then a monster appeared, it was a tall alien like monster with the anatomy of a 7 foot human with a build like a tree, he wore armor and metal fish netting over his body, he clicked at me. I stared for a moment.
"What are you?" I asked, mostly to myself, through all of my worldly adventures I had seen many different things but this topped it. He wore a mask and from his right arm extended two claw like weapons attached to his arm. Then on his left there was a small computer like data collector, and off his left side there was a small box. I watched him carefully. He tapped at the computer and I tried to establish wither to run or stay.
"I'm oing to ill you ooman." He said in a choppy English sentence. I growled and summoned my sword, which materialized in my hand.
"You're not going to be able to" I said challengingly. He clicked and in his own head he thought 'This was unexpected, maybe I can actually enjoy this one'. I held my sword ready and he circled me a moment. Looked like I was going to be defending myself tonight, again, but not to the usual back alley stalker. Good thing I wasn't the usual girl, a lot of people didn't know I was actually a genetically altered Nobody. I didn't die except under certain circumstances, and I had powers. A Nobody was a being who supposedly didn't have a heart, but really we just didn't have the soul of one. I had originally come from an organization that I left for reasons that didn't need to be known. I studied his movements and his body, figuring how he would be fighting and what his strong points are and what his weakness would be. He was so tall that I may have an advantage with being short like I am. Something about how he looked around made it seem like he wasn't seeing normally. I began to think, back when I was in the organization I could have swore I read something about a creature like this in Zexion's library one day, I was trying so hard to think back that far. While I did he charged in and I jumped right and turned as he swung at me, I blocked the shot to my face with my arm, but it was powerful enough to knock me down, I rolled as I hit the ground and kick out his foot with my foot and he stumbled. I then jumped up and watched him. He clicked and I smiled, this was going to be a great fight, I could already tell, a challenge for once, I could tell just by that small little round a lot about him. He was good at close range. He was also effective in response time and thinking improvisational. It then hit me, he was a Predator and based on the marking on his mask he was a Yautja clan member. I wasn't going to assess his ranking, I couldn't tell if he was elite or not. I held my sword out and ready for anything that he may try to do. He clicked and pulled out his spear and it extended in his hand, his camouflage that had hid him before I saw him earlier then began to reactivate. It covered him and it became extremely difficult to see him. I took in a deep breath and took a few steps back as I heard his footsteps around me. Keeping my back away from the noise I watched for any sign that would give him away. I then saw him step through a puddle on the ground; I saw his foot in the puddle and the water move to new space. I smiled and fire ran up from that spot and he jumped back, but the fire was on him and enveloped his body and it was then put out. The camouflage circuited out and I could see him again. I laughed lightly as he charged at me with the spear, I deflected it with my sword and he kicked towards my back but I bent in slightly so he missed, when his foot hit the ground I kick back into the calf and he fell to the knee, and he then punched up into my stomach and I bent forward and I saw his black eyes from under his mask. He spun the spear and I jumped back before the tip landed just where my head had been. I stared at him and he stared back, standing he rose to full height. He ran at me and it looked like he was going to hit with the spear but it disappeared along his back and he pulled out a disk, flicking out the blades on it. He threw it and he anticipated my block to it and he slammed his shoulder into me and I was launched back. In the air a managed to turn and make it so my legs hit the wall and I kicked off the wall and landed on the ground bent on one knee. I looked at him and he caught his disk. 'maybe this will be enjoyable.' He said to himself in his head. I grunted and rolled my eyes. As I stood I grabbed my dagger from my left boot with my left hand and held it concealed in my cloak. I ran and charged at him, my sword aimed to hit his left shoulder. He stopped it with his hand and his other hand came at my face, I moved my head to the side and then stabbed upwards with the dagger. It hit his forearm on his right arm. There was a shrieking yell from the shock and pain. I jumped back and bright green blood was on my dagger and dripped from his arm. I grunted and then the box on his left shoulder popped up and three red dots appeared on me, right where my heart was. I laughed and moved and it followed me. A sniper gun I figured. I waited and there was a small click and with that I jumped to the side and with the click a blue orb of power shot out and hit right where I had been. I had moved right as he fired. That was almost a lucky move. I was going to have to get rid of it before it got to me. I wiped the blade on my cloak and put it in my sleeve on the dagger holder on my wrist. The green blood showed on my cloak and I shrugged. I circled around him and he did the same, following a circular pattern. He stepped towards me and the circle began to close in, I held my sword out and he held his staff. I watched him and he swung around and up, it came down and I jumped to my right and sliced to the left trying to aim for the gun. I nicked it off canter and it was only supported by a leg and a half practically. I heard him growl unhappily. I smirked and he twisted his staff around and it cut my cloak across a shoulder. Humph, oh well I thought to myself. There was a cut and I stopped the bleeding a little so it wasn't too bad. He clicked amused.
"It's not going to end that easily." I said, he clicked and jumped back and I stood ready. He thought to himself. 'This human is different, she is stubborn and fights for her life, but yet, I see in her eyes, she does not fear death.' He was intrigued by her. We circled a bit and I flipped back onto a dumpster and waited, my back against the wall. He came at me and I scaled up the wall and grabbed a fire escape stair way. I swung up and stood, he looked up at me and he scaled up the wall jumping onto the stairs. 'What is she doing? Testing me? Can she possibly be evaluating me for what I can do?' He thought curiously. We then locked into trying to hit each other with our weapons. I led him up the stairs to the top of the building and we were then on the roof, still trying to hit each other, I was more defensive though, trying to get him to the roof. When we got there, the wind blew and my hair whipped in front of me. He watched, and took a deep breath. 'Her smell, there is no fear in her, no panic or alarm to being challenged to such a degree,' I smiled at him and he knew that it was a real smile of enjoyment. This confused him and made him curious.
"hy are ou miling, ooman" He clicked agitatedly. I laughed.
"This is the first time in years that I have actually been challenged by a fight, and I love it." I told him laughing more. He clicked and pulled out his disk again flicking out the blades again. I pulled out my dagger and waited, he came at me and spun it in his hand, I waited, and blocked the kick to my side with my right hand and pressed my dagger to the disk as he shoved me against the wall that led to stairs to inside the building. I growled and he had me by the throat, he tilted my head side to side looking at me, with lack of oxygen any normal human would start to turn blue but I wasn't, he clearly knew that that wasn't right. My face was still the same color. Being a Nobody that existed forever, I didn't need to breathe; it was just comfortable to do so. Also with having my blood ability I could still maintain blood flow and use the blood to bring oxygen into my system with my skin. He was taking a good look at me and I began to heat my body up.
"Good luck with choking me, it won't work." I said laughing. His hand began to burn and I kicked him in the thigh where there was no protecting. He dropped me and I fell to the ground and rolled, but as I did he delivered a swift kick to my side and I rolled to the other direction. He then threw the spear into the ground next to me so I couldn't roll any more. He came over and put his massive foot on my back, I tried to push up. As he rolled me onto my back and I was having difficulty moving.
"I hink the ore ppropriate uestion ould be, hat are ou?" He asked, I laughed more, and I then realized his sniper gun had reformed on his shoulder, just like his cloak. I looked at it and sighed, maybe this was the end, I couldn't move and it was aimed at my throat, I saw the energy gather in the gun and I saw his small black eyes look into mine. Smiling, I laughed softly, and waited to be killed. He saw this and began to think. 'Did she just laugh, does she know something I don't, or has she accepted her fate, looking at death she laughs. How?' He questioned to himself. He was about to fire when he stopped, he couldn't kill her, not like this, his gun went back to his back again. I saw the hesitation and grabbed my dagger, I thrust it into his thigh and he gave a hiss like growl. His leg lifted and I twisted up and knocked the other leg in so he fell to the ground and I was quickly over him holding my sword to his throat. He clicked slowly and quietly, I looked into the eyes of his mask, seeing his eyes, I took a deep breath and growled as I stood and threw my sword to the ground, as it clattered it disappeared and I walked away. As I did he got up and followed, he grabbed my arm and spun me around, making me look at him.
"Why idn't ou ill me ooman?" He growled.
