the survivor of equestria

by wolfman93

the memories of the battlefield

It has been almost a whole week since the fight back at the everfree forest. The hospital has done a great job helping my wounds including the other humans’ wounds as well. Right now he sleeps peacefully on twilights couch while both me and twilight practice learning new spells a few inches away from him. Mostly sometimes we take our magic sessions outside to make sure we didn’t harm him or for more room to cast more spells. So far as the days went by we practice in peace without another attack like the one before back at the everfree forest. Along the way to the man’s recovery, a certain cyan pony kept by his side and has been keeping an eye on him making sure he’s still breathing which frankly it’s really cute the way she’s with him since day one. She started coming by after returning from hospital late that night.

It was late pass midnight and every pony was asleep. All except for me whom I kept my night reading a few more spell books to help pass the time. As I grabbed another book from the top shelf the sound of the window creaking caught my attention.

“hm?” I said quietly as the sound of flapping echo as the window creaked more. The candle I had with me blew out from the gust of air blowing from outside and the flapping sound grew louder with every second pass by. As whatever drew closer I quickly set my book on the desk and took cover behind the couch leaving my glock on top of the desk far off from the couch. Thankfully I still had my knife in my boot sheath and unsheathe it pointing the blade downward. I moved behind the couch till I was on its side and peered behind it.

I couldn’t tell who it was due to being so dark and all but I could tell that it was definitely a pony due to the fact of its small body and Pegasus wings. I watched as whoever looked at both sides before leaning towards the man’s face. I couldn’t see what it was doing to him as whoever it was drew closer till his or her face was touching the man’s face. It last for a few seconds till finally the Pegasus pony let go and began to walk or better yet fly away. Perfect opportunity. I leaped forward off the side of the couch towards the Pegasus. He/she didn’t have time to move and I tackled the suspicious pony down and brought my knife to its neck.

“Who are? What are you doing here and what did you do to that man?” I said angrily but quietly.

The dark pony grunted. “It’s me you big lug” she said.

I body tremble as I recognize that voice. I remove my knife off his neck and back into my boot sheath. With a well place flame brightened my hand and I shined it down at both me and the Pegasus. My heart felt cold as ice for seeing who I was on. I was sitting on a good friend. Rainbow dash.

“r- r- rainbow dash” I quickly got off her and sat on my knees. Dash floated up and dusts herself off as I stared at her.

“w- What are yo-“I was cut short as my head fell back after a hard force that caused me to fall onto my back. I groan and rubbed my face but it didn’t stop there as I felt another force impacting in the middle of my legs. I placed both hands between my legs. A jolt of pain made me lose my breath and I couldn’t breathe right for a moment. Rainbow dash huffed and began to giggle after landing the second punch right in the sensitive area.

I gasped harshly and looked at rainbow. “wh- why there?” I gasped

Rainbow dash giggled. “Because you deserve it”

“Still why THERE!” I huffed

“Because it’s funny” she made a triumph grin and laughed.

Twilight who was sleeping peacefully in her room was woken up by the sound of laughing and groaning downstairs. She stretched both her hooves and got off her bed and made her way down the stairway. A lit candle hovered in front of her as she moved down the stairs. She shined the candle down the stair case and raised an eyebrow. The candle shine with me lying on the floor with both hands between my legs and groaning while was rainbow dash laughing in front of me. Rainbow dash didn’t move as twilight made her way down the stairs and stand next to her.

“Uh angel are you ok?” twilight said in a sweet but worried tone.

The pain didn’t stopped but I managed to look up at twilight. Tears were running down my cheeks as I looked up at twilight and rainbow dash. “Yes twi… I- I hit my knee on something hard. That’s all” I groan again as another surge of pain coursed through my whole body. Twilight didn’t need ask again. She knew I was lying due to the simple fact that I’m gripping another part instead of my knee.

“Oh really. Are you sure you weren’t doing something dirty to rainbow that made her kick you in the groin angel” twilight folded her hooves and looked at me angrily.

Rainbow turned bright crimson at twilights comment. I blushed and shooked my head. “WHAT NO! DASH SAY SOMETHING!”

Rainbow dash sighed and patted twilights shoulder. “He’s right. He thought I was an enemy and attacked me. But its ok I’m fine and well I got mad at angel and well” she chuckled

I glared at dash. “NOT FUNNY DASH” I said almost in a growling tone.

She kept laughing but soon stopped at twilight’s question.

Twilight looked at rainbow puzzled. “Ok Wait rainbow why are you here then?” I managed to sit on my knees thinking of the same question as well. Rainbow looked at us. She was sweating and her voice quivered trying to think of something.

“Uh well I uh was.” She rubbed her head. “I was uh…. In town and decide to check on you guys.”

Twilight and I didn’t buy the little lie due to the fact that it’s almost 2 in the morning and most ponies are in bed asleep and plus her blushing face shows another side of this story. she indeed cared about the man that save her life yesterday.

She never praised anyone except the wonderbolts but she like them because of how awesome they were. When it comes to others she never needed saving since she was the element of loyalty and was always there when a pony is in need of help. She always there and always helping or saving somepony and for some random creature risking his life for rainbow dash it was a big deal for her.

I cross my arms and looked at dash who diverted her sight away from. “Dash you’re an awesome flyer but one thing is that your terrible at lying.” I chuckled.

Rainbow dash dropped her head and stared at the floor. She knew she was bad at lying especially about her feelings. Twilight wrapped her friends shoulder and hugged her.

“It’s ok rainbow it’s good to be in love.” Twilight smiled

Rainbow dash flinched and pushed twilight back. Her face was burning up and her lips form into a crooked smile. “WHAT NO! I- I just want to say thank you that’s all nothing more” she crossed her hooves but still blushed.

I smiled devilish as thoughts of torment for her. Payback is going to be a bitch for you rainbow dash I said softly in my head.

“Oh really.” I cleared my throat. “If I can recall; I saw everything dash. Especially the little gift you gave him right smacked dabbed on his lips to be exact.” I grinned.

Twilight looked at both me then at rainbow. Her mouth dropped and she covered it with a hoof trying not to squeal as she stared at rainbow. Dash looked at me with a surprise looked. Her whole face was now a deep shade of red. Her face looked like a tomato and I laughed as rainbow grew more redder as I smiled.

I laughed. “Oh man you should see your face. Priceless”

Rainbow twitched her eyebrow before finally lunging at me “WHY YOU LITTLE” she said angrily and began punching and kicking my sides and chest. My body ached again but not from all the punching but because of all the laughing I was making. My sides ached from all the laughing I made. Tears rolled down my eyes as rainbow dash punched my chest and upside my head. I shield my face and my between my legs so that rainbow wouldn’t deliver another crushing blow that will end it fast. I managed to stop laughing mainly because I had to protect myself from rainbows strikes over and over. As I held my hand to my face something was wrong. The beating stop and I could hear sniffling.

“Rainbow” I said. I got up and looked at rainbow. She stopped pummeling me and sat on the ground in front of me. Her hair covered her eyes as she stared at the ground but she let a small sniffle. I looked at the bottom from where she sat. Several dark spots layed in front of her. Another was made by her own tear.

Oh crap I made her cry. I felt more worse now. Seeing a girl cry is bad but making your best friend cry well that’s just cold. I placed two fingers onto of her chin and help raised her head up till she was facing me. She didn’t hesitate as I moved her head. My frown grew worse as I looked at rainbow tearful face. Her cheeks had a few streams of tears running down, a single tear layed on top of one of her dark lashes. She sniffled again.

“Rainbow I’m- I’m sorry. I’m truly am.” I brought rainbow dash close. She moved up till her chin was lying on top of my shoulder. I folded my arms around her waist and hugged my friend in forgiveness.

“I’m sorry rainbow for laughing at you. can you please forgive me”

Rainbow returned my embrace. She wrapped both hooves around my neck and nuzzled my shoulder. Twilight smiled as for a few seconds but her smile turned to a frown as to see from where this was going. She stomped forward towards us and stopped just an inch from where we were sitting.

“Oh no it’s bad enough that applejack’s has a crush on you. I rather not have another mare falling for you again angel” twilight said angrily.

I blushed and stared at twilight. Rainbow however didn’t turned to look at twilight and just stared at my chest. I smiled lamely and chuckled.

“Twilight it’s not like th-“I was cut off as another jolt of pain surged from between my pants. My arms were clamped against rainbow’s shoulder which she squirm around to break free. Twilight watched as my face made another pain surging face and later falling onto my back. Rainbow dash frowning sad face turned to a deviant smile as I placed both arms in the middle of my pants.

“HA I should be an actress with my skills” she said as she fixed hair and wiped the last bit fake tears off her face.

I looked at rainbow dash again with tear filled eyes. “Why? Of all places WHY THERE?!” I breathe raspy as another jolt of pain surged again.

Rainbow smiled. “Paybacks a bitch huh angel. Remember that”

Twilight shooked her head but smiled as she sat beside rainbow dash. Rainbow and twilight both looked at each other and giggled. Rainbow looked behind twilight at towards the sleeping human on the couch. She stood up and walked straight towards him sat in front of the couch. Twilight watched as rainbow sat next to him and looked at his face. She walked forward and sat beside her again.

“Listen rainbow I- we know that you care for this man deeply” rainbow looked at twilight.

“How about you stay here and watch over him till he wakes up. I’ll grab a blanket and pillow for you to stay here and I’m sure angel won’t mind your stay provided if you don’t hit him again.”

Rainbow dash giggled and nodded. “Yes twilight that would be cool” she looked at me. I barely managed to control my breathing rate but I still was able to sit on my knees again. I wiped the last of my tears and looked at rainbow dash and nodded.

Since then the last few days’ rainbow dash has been staying by the man’s side waiting for him to wake up. Twilight had provided rainbow a confortable blanket and pillow and allows her to sleep next to him. I tried not to make any jokes of any hints of other places she could sleep since that would bring in more pain. Rainbow dash didn’t mind sleeping on the floor but the way she looked as both me and twilight wake up or when we’re training she looked like a guard dog or something waiting for his master to wake. I know it’s not right to think of her as a dog but with her like this it was so cute to see her beside him.

Two more days passed by and both me and twilight both took turns seeing if he’s ok. Since I was close to his form I took most of his vital signs like his pulse and heart rate. Twilight took his temperature and breathing rate which mostly help making sure his temperature didn’t spike or his breathing patterns weren’t badly damaged after taking a blast from a rocket. Rainbow dash sat at one of the end of couch and watched as I pressed two fingers against his neck and counted the number of beats per minute. As I checked his vitals I stared at the man with great discomfort. The same question kept popping into my head as I looked or even took a glimpse of him.

“What are you?”

** ** **

Protrokalos stood floating in midair in a shroud of darkness. His body floats lifeless as he drifted off in slumber. His eyes were completely shut his mouth opened a small inch. His long canines reveal through the half inched opened mouth. He couldn’t move for a while. It felt like days, months at least.

His body stood there for a long time but it finally was over. His hand twitched a bit. It twitched till he managed to clutch his hand tight. His eyes lids wiggled a bit, enough for him to finally open his eyes. His eyelids felt like bricks as he tried to open his eyes. He groans from the pressure carcinated all around his body. He shooked his head softly and opened his eyes.

“Uh wha” he said.

He shooked his head again. His vision became blurry but he slowly began to regain his vision. He looked around his surroundings. Nothing he saw nothing but pure darkness. He looked down at his feet. His body felt cold as he stared in the endless debts of pure darkness.

Is this judgment day? Are they determining on where I should go? He felt his body tremble as the thought of being thrown in hell but he didn’t last long. He had worse than before while being alive and hell will be nothing compare to all the harsh times he had from the first time being born to after being caged and collared like a common animal. He closed his eyes and sighed deeply. He kept his eyes shut as took another breath of air but he stopped halfway as he felt something odd. A gust of cool air condition blew across his face. His feet felt something else instead of just air. He felt cold against hard surface on the bottom of his feet and between his toes.

“What the” he opened his eyes again. His eyes widen in surprise as he stared around his surroundings. Instead of floating in pure darkness he was sitting a room. He scanned his surrounds and turned in all directions to see the whole room. It as a fairly sized white room with several war posters on two sides and a huge window at the end from where the door leads. In the middle of the room was a regular sized hospital bed with several monitors’ layed next to both sides and a huge lamp hanged on a stand above the bed. On one side layed a huge counter which had a computer and a large stereo on top while on the other side had a small restroom and shower.

His body felt shakened as he stared at everything inside at the room. This is his room back in his hometown. He home was actually connected to a secret large laboratory in the outskirts of Russia far away from civilization. Since he was born he was always kept in the same room, never to see the sun and never to venture out into the labs themselves. He remembered several scientists coming in and checking on his vitals including his bone functions and brain waves. He dislike all the tests they gave him including all the strange vials filled with something he couldn’t pronounce as each syringe had a certain a different label with only letters and numbers on it.

He shooked his head thinking it’s not real. He wasn’t in his room since because. His thoughts seized as the sound of a metal sliding caught his attention. He looked in front from where the door and the huge window sat. The metal door that sat next to the window was wide open with a strange figure in the middle of the door. Protrokalos couldn’t see who he was because he was standing further away from door in complete darkness. The only thing that was visible was two hands holding a large tray with a plate of food and two visible white eyes. The figure stood there for a few seconds before finally stepping out of the darkness and into the well-lit white room.

The figure was a large broad man with light brown hair and a white complex. He was wearing a large lab coat along with some dark black pants with a pair of black dress shoes. His hair was long and his bangs kept protrokalos from seeing his face. He walked forward till he was standing in front of him holding the tray forward.

Protrokalos looked up at the man’s face. His head tilted forward an inch covering his whole face with his hair. He then looked down at the tray. A nice tender juicy steak with a side of mash potatoes and corn layed on a plate on the tray as he presented it to protrokalos. He looked at the food then back at the man who carried it in suspicious on who he was underneath his hair.

He reached his hand to grab the plate of food on the tray. His hand stopped as he looked at the plate again. In the middle of the plate a single red drop laid splatter in the middle of the plate. He stared at it.

“That wasn’t there before” he said softly. His hand layed over the food. A cold impact onto his hand that made him flinched and he took a few steps back away from him. He looked at the man again. His hearted beat faster as he felt a sudden chill down his spine from just looking at him.

He looked down his hand. A small red smudged dripped down from the palm and through his fingers. He reached onto his hand with the other and wiped the red smudged with his index. He rubbed his index with his thumb against the red liquid on his finger. He drew his nose closer to his finger and took a whiff of it. The pungent smell stunged his nostrils but somehow even though it was masked he knew what it was. Blood.

He rubbed the blood off his hand onto his pants and starred at the man. “Does this guy have blood nose or something else that I don’t know” he said.

The scientist didn’t move as protrokalos flinched back or even when he tried to grab the food. He just stood there like a common statue or like time has stand still only for him. Protrokalos didn’t even know if he’s breathing at all since he just stood so quiet. He wanted to know who he was but he didn’t want to get to close to him. He felt around for anything that might help move his hair or maybe move him without getting close. His hands guide behind on top of the bed trying to find something useful.

His hand felt something hard but slender as he moved his right down at the edge of his bed. He looked down at where his hand touched the object. A huge smile erupted on his face as he looked down at it. His katana lay next on its side on the monitor connected to the lamp. He grabbed his katana and held the shaft in his left and the handle on his right. With a quick motion he brought the blade towards the scientists’ face slicing off parts of his hair and quickly sheathing it all in one quick swifting motion. The scientist head fell back, the tray fell down clunking onto the ground. The food spread all around along with several patches of hair falling on top of it.

Protrokalos smiled pleasingly but his smile ended as the scientist brought his head back facing him. His body trembled as he stared into the scientist’s pure white eyes with small black dots in the middle. Bits of flesh from his face were gone leaving parts of his bone and muscle showing. His teeth were stained a dark reddish color and piece of chunked flesh sat between his teeth as he stared at protrokalos. A low growl echo from the scientist mouth, more blood dripped from his mouth and onto the fallen food in front of him.

Prtrokalos stood shocked at the scientists’ torned up face. He brought his sword up a bit showing him he’s armed and will not hesitate to hurt him. The scientist turned his head while still staring at him. Without any warning the scientist let out a nasty screeching scream before lunging straight at protrokalos. Protrokalos didn’t have time to bring the blade out as the scientist lung forward at him. Both arms sticking towards his exposed head. He quickly ducked away against the man’s grip and brought his sword straight up. As he ducked down he clamped both hands on the shaft of his blade and with all force he strike at the man’ stomach with the handle of the katana. With all his weight on top of his sword he threw it behind him. The force he placed into his handle toppled the man forward almost landing on the bed. The last thing protrokalos heard was the sound of bone snapping.

He didn’t want to know if he was ok due to the fact since he didn’t know what he was anymore. He wasn’t stupid when it comes to defending himself and he was definitely wasn’t stupid on checking someone who tried to kill you. He shoved his katana into his belt slots and rushed towards the open door. He quickly ran to the opened door but he was stopped soon as he entered. His whole body was pushed forward by a violent force. Bits of debrey and a large gust of smoke entered the room as he flew back from the door. His body flew a good 10 centimeters’ before finally landing on the hard floor. The back of his head hit first on the concrete.

He blacked out.

After blacking out for a mild second he woke up again but this time something was different. He wasn’t staring up at the ceiling anymore instead he was staring up at the beautiful sun down sky. A few clouds hover over the beautiful orange sky. He lifts himself up from the ground. His body itched in the back as he lifted himself up. His head didn’t ache after the massive impact on his head but he still had a mild headache after waking up. He looked down at the ground in front of him. Large fields of grass stretched out for miles as he looked around. A few trees layed far miles off from where he was.

“Where am I now?” he said rubbing his head with his left. The other was clutching something long, slender and heavy as he stood up. He looked down at his hand. He was clutching his katana he had on back when the scientist or whatever he was attacked him before. But as he brought it close to him something didn’t quite add right to it. First off his sword shaft looked almost beat up as though he was using it more than the sword itself. Both the shaft and the blades handle was both covered in some type of dried up liquid. He brought it up to his nose and sniffed it. The same pungent smell stung his nose and he covered his nose and mouth with the other hand. As he covered his mouth something made him gag. He coughed as the same smell grew stronger but same time he taste it. He looked down at his hand which was covered in the same red liquid his sword was covered.

Protrokalos stood up panicking as he looked down at him. His whole body was covered in the same red substance his sword was covered in. another whif of it made his heart grow cold. It was blood.

“WHAT THE HELL?!” he screamed as he twisted his arms around. More of it covered his arms and some that was still wet dripped down his body and down his pants. He patted his face with both hands. Something felt dried up as he touched his whole face. As he touched his face the memories of previous place he was made his body shake as the image of the scientists’ rotten face made him feel horrified as to anyone living with a face like that. He shooked his head trying to get the horrible images of the scientist face and looked behind. A gust of smoke floated in the air far up the hill from where he laid.

“What’s that?” he said as he stared at the grey smoke slowly turned black and blacken the sky above. An ominous screamed caught his attention as it echoed all throughout the land. His body stiffens as another screamed echoed again. He shooked himself and raced up to the top. He stomped both feet down onto the ground as he ran up the hill. He made his way up the top of the hill and viewed over the horizon. He stared over the land from on top of the hill. A small village layed on the bottom of hill as he gazed over the horizon.

He stared shocked at the small village down below. It was burning. His mind felt blank was the sight of the small village down below. It wasn’t just any village burning down in fact he looked down from where he was standing. This was the first time he witness coming to this beautiful world and the village he heard the residents’ called it poniville. His mind tried to achieve what was happening. Another blast of black smoke hovered in the air as another screamed echoed as the village burned. He looked down at earth from the village. A faint red smudge smeared all over the fields and some smeared on the walls. several bodies layed on the pools, some of which had several objects sticking out from the bodies.

“WHAT THE HELL HAPP-“he stopped midsentence and looked down and then at the weapon. He squeezed the shafts of the katana, more drops of blood oozed down it and dropped onto the ground. He brought his other hand and rubbed the bandana around his forehead. His mind baffled as he stared at the town and then at himself.

“Could I’ve done this? I know I’m can destroy a city but…. This beautiful peaceful town.” He took a deep breath.

“I must find out”

Without running down he bend both legs and without using any of his strength he leaped straight up in the air. His leap stetched far off from where stand and fly over till he was right above in the middle of the town. He covered his mouth as he flew through the black smoke of one of the buildings but didn’t stop. In a few seconds of flying into the air He finally descend down to earth. He flipped twice to keep balance as he descends down. He finally landed onto the hard ground, both legs kneeling down and he stood on both front toes as he touchdown.

He kept his head down but he lifted it up a bit and scanned his surroundings. As he slowly stand up he felt petrified at the destruction of all the buildings. Houses caught on fire, several walls, doors and farm equipment stood in ruins as the fire consumed most of it. Blood splattered every along with several bones and pieces of ripped fleshed spilled everywhere as he looked for survivors. But something felt peculiar as he looked around. There was so much blood everywhere but no bodies anywhere. Nothing a few limbs, parts of wings and some unicorn horns were scattered everywhere. He raised his eyebrow as the lack of bodies weren’t anywhere to be seen.

“Where are the bodies? They couldn’t just walk up and left with so much blood loss. Surely someone or something did this.” He looked down at his weapon. “I…. I could never be this cruel”

He clutched his weapon hard and closed his eyes. He stood their silent as the sound of fire crackled against the hard wood that was engulfed in flames. There was no one around the town which means they either got away from whatever did this or…. Everyone’s dead. The wind whistled through the streets, the sound of buildings crashing down echoed around him.

“HELP ME SOMEPONY!” a screamed echoed in front of protrokalos. Protrokalos felt startled as the screamed ring in his ears. The cry for help sounded like it came from a few blocks from where he stands.

“Somebody needs help” he shoved his katana’s shaft through one of his belt slots on his pants and race down through town.

He felt his adrenaline pumped as he race through more burning buildings, more large body pools of blood covered all corners with very lack of bodies to near them. He carefully missed each puddle so not to slip and lose balance as he sprinted through the streets. As he race through his mind became question in all of the destruction that’s covers the town. ‘Who did this? Where did the survivors go?’ ‘Where’s the monster that did this’ he closed his eyes for a second. He felt his body beginning to lunge forward. His feet began to turn up in a 180 degrees straight up in the air. His arms twisted around as he tried to regain balance but couldn’t. His back felt the impact as his finally landed straight.

He groaned as he rubbed his head. His entire back felt cold and wet as he laid there for a few seconds. He managed to lift himself up but not entirely. As he stood up his back felt something dripping down and he felt something drip down onto his neck.

“What the?” he looked down at his hand. A large dark redish puddle stains his hand and he looked at it. His heart beated faster and he looked at the other hand. Another red puddle stain on his hand. He turned his head and stared straight onto the ground. His breathing grew faster as he stared at the large pool of blood he was laying on. He shooked his head and twisted his body till he was on his knees, his head stared down at the puddle he laid on. His pants became wet and stained dark red as he sat on his knees. He sat on them for a good few seconds before finally getting up. He slowly placed his hand on his knee to provide leverage but stopped half way. A large crunching sound was heard right in front of him as he got up.

He slowly lifted his head up from where the crunching sound was coming from. His eyes grew wide eyed at the horrible sight.

A fairly sized light red pony with a flaming Mohawk laid dead on in front of protrolakos. His eyes were stone white and large pieces of fur and flesh was torn off from his face and neck. His limbs were battered and chewed off and in the middle of its side had a large hole that reveals several of its organs. One particular layed in the teeth of another that stood next to it. It was a light blue Pegasus pony that stood next to the corpse. Its left wing was completely gone and it beared a large bite marks on its left hoof. Its eyes were the same stone colored but in the middle laid a small black dot in the middle. It’s teeth stained red as it lowers its head down in the middle of the hole and began pulling off a chunk of flesh up. The flesh made a nasty snap sound as it rip off, some of the blood spew up into the air and landed onto its rainbow colored mane.

Protrokalos felt his heart beats up his throat and they were so loud he could hear them. His body shakened as he slowly stands. His eyes widen as he stared at it enjoying its meal. He couldn’t breathe as he remembered who it was.

It continued chewing on its meal like a rabbid animal before finally turning its head. Its pure white eyes with small black dots made protrokalos flinched as it stared at him. It beared it’s blood stained teeth; pieces of flesh stick between some and blood drooled out and onto the floor. A low growl echoed from it as it slowly began to walked towards him.

Protrokalos couldn’t move as it continued to limp towards him. He managed to see full view of her as she walked. She had more than just a bit on his arm and her wings. Part of its right side of its face was torn off revealing half of her jaw bone. A lone tear fell down his right cheek and landed into the pool of blood below.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t protect you” he said softly as it continued limping towards him.

The zombie looked at him and snarled. It continued to bare its teeth at him before finally letting out a ghastly shriek. The shriek stung protrokalos ears but he was able regain before…. It lunged at him. He watched as the zombie lunged forward at him. Its mouth was wide open as it lunged forward waiting to take a bite on its new meal. Protrokalos sway his arms around, the end of the katana made contact with the zombies side face but not before its front hoofs made contact to his chest.

The force on both the katana and its hoofs caused both figures to tumble down. The zombie flew off to the side as the katana’s shaft pushed if far off to the side. Protrokalos fell back; his arms shot straight into the air his head fell further down towards the ground. He closed his eyes for a few minutes as he fell straight back onto the mud puddle. His only thought was he forgot the large rock he tripped on was still there. He continued falling till finally his head…. Felt the impact against a hard rock.

….. He finally woke up.

Protrokalos woked up startled; sweat dripped down his brow and onto the pillow he layed on. His breathing became raspy as he stared straight up towards the ceiling. His body felt warm as he continued to stare at the ceiling. He felt something wrapped around his whole body and something heavy was lying on top of his stomach putting pressure on his stomach and his chest.

“wha-“ he continued to breath heavily. He shooked his and lifted it up an inch. He looked down at his chest. He was covered in a large blue blanket from the shoulders down to his feet. He raised an eyebrow as he looked down at his stomach. A large rainbow mane layed on top of his chest just inches from his face.

He tried twisting around hoping to move whatever was on him off. The blanket wrapped around him was loose but not loose enough to get his arms out of the sides. He wiggled about trying to break free from the blankets grasp; with all the twisting and turning the rainbow figure finally woke.

She tossed and turned too before finally lifting her head up and reveals her face. She was half asleep as she placed her chin on top of his chest and slowly opened her eyes. Protrokalos stopped moving as he felt the mare slowly waking up and placing her chin in front of him. He stared as she slowly opened her eyes; her beautiful magenta eyes glisten from the sunlight right above them as she opened. He blushed at the sight of her beautiful eyes.

Rainbow dash finally woked up after a long exhausting night of watching over him. Later last night she grew tired of sleeping on the floor and since she didn’t know when he’ll wake up she decided to use his stomach as a bed instead. She slept like a small filly once she lay peacefully onto his stomach but it didn’t last long. She felt irritated by his constant moving and finally woke up. She slowly opened her eyes and blushed. He was awake too.

She rushed up into the air; her face burned a crimson red as she kept her gaze at him. Protrokalos also stared at her as he sat up. Their eyes locked on one another, like they were in a trance by both each other’s gazes. Rainbow felt her heart sped up as he blushed so did protrokalos.

Both stood there for a few blissful moments till finally breaking out of the trance by the sound of the door opening. Rainbow dash took his gaze off him and looked at the door. Protrokalos shooked his head and looked towards the door.

“Oh come on honey. You know she’s my girlfriend too” one figure said as the door opened.

“Still I don’t care. She could have least tell me before giving you the kiss of life.” another figure said

“You hit me so hard I almost fell into unconsciousness.”

“Yes but I apologize didn’t i? I didn’t even meant to hit you that hard”

Protrokalos watched as two familiar figures came in through the door. The first was the human he faced earlier. He wore a regular green shirt and pair of jeans and combat boots. Around his knee held a strap on with a glock in the holster. His hair was long brownish with several long bangs in the front and down his sides and a large red hoof mark printed on his left cheek as he carried several bags of groceries in both arms. The second the purple unicorn that was saved by the human last time he fought. Her hair was a dark bluish color with a purple and pink streak down her mane and tail and had several stars on her side of She had an angry but blushing look on her face.

Rainbow looked at the red mark on angel’s face as he came and set the groceries on the desk next to the door. A small giggle erupted in her mouth but she tried to contain it as I looked up at her.

“Hey rainbow glad you’re up. Uh guess you see this huh” I chuckled and pointed at my little temporary tattoo on my face.

Rainbow tried to contain her laughing as she didn’t need an explanation since she knew ‘who’ made that mark on his face but wanted to confirm it. “What happen to your face angel?” she chuckled again

“Well” I rolled his eyes and smiled.

*flash back*

“hm these peaches do look yummy huh angel?” twilight said smiling

“Yeah they do twi. How much sir” I said rummaging through his pocket.

It was a nice day walking through the shopping center. Both twilight and I went by buying groceries tonight’s supper. Since I was working for applejack I was able to pay for some of the food. Twilight enjoyed the company of her coltfriend especially when he generously asks to carry the groceries so she wouldn’t mess up her back. Twilight smiled as I placed 4 peaches into the bag and hand 6 bits to the sales pony; the other two peaches were for me and twilight. I happily chew on the healthy sweet peach I bought for both twilight and me; the sweetness of a fresh peach made my taste buds water again. I had canned peaches back in my world however I didn’t like them but I had to eat them if was going to survive and eating a fresh peach right off the tree tasted heavenly. Twilight chewed on her peach as well and looked up at me.

She smiled as a single drool strained fell down my cheek and against my jaw. She giggles and took another bite of her peach. I heard her giggle and looked at her confuse.

“Twilight what are giggling about?” I raised an eyebrow and smiled.

Twilight kept giggling before looking up at me. “Because you look cute when you’re drooling”

I blushed and wipe the drool off my face. We both continued finished our grocery shopping and decided to call it a day. Twilight led the way as I walked next to her, carrying several bags of fulled with food. I took a huge breath and looked up at the sky and smiled.

“Today is such a beautiful day huh.” I said looking up at the bright blue sky.

Twilight looked up at the sky then at me. “Yes it is”

“It would be even more beautiful with me and yah underneath a big old apple tree with the sun setting down and us kissing throughout the night sugar cube” a voice was heard right behind us.

Twilight looked annoyed as she recognized that voice anywhere, especially the sugar cube part. I was too busy blushing bright red and my heart skipping the beat to let my brain achieve who had said that. I managed to snap out of it and looked behind me. Twilight turned her head at the same time and looked behind. A certain farmer pony giggled and blushed as she looked at me.

“Oh hey applejack nice to see you today” I smiled lamely

Twilight looked at her a little unamused feeling down her gut. She cared for applejack because she was her best friend and she loved her like all her friends. She only wished she wasn’t trying to steal her coltfriend. But like i said a couple of days ago that i loved her as much as her and I told both her and applejack to behave if I was with one or the other or even both.

Twilight sighed and smiled at her good friend. “Hey applejack. What brings you here into town?”

Applejack trotted in front of me and placed her hoof on my left leg. “Well sugarcube ah was heading to grab ah few ingredients’ for granny smiths recipes and it seems ah hit the jackpot today” she said blushing.

“Can’t wait till you get home. Ah hope you’ll like my apple pies or you want something more ‘sweeter’ then pie sugar cube” she said winking at me.

Twilight looked at applejack and raised an eyebrow and then at me. I rubbed the back of my head and chuckled. I closed my eyes as I rubbed my head but I opened them as I felt an intense heat next to me. I turned my head slowly inch my inch; my face made an unease look as I looked down at twi.

Twilight stared down at the ground as I watched a red aura began to form around her. I felt the heat getting hotter every second pass as I stared at twi. I felt like I was going to get 2nd degree sunburn on my right arm and parts of my face felt warm even though I stopped blushing a while ago. Her hair began to change color as well as float up in the air. It changed from the dark purplish mane to blazing on fire style. She looked up at me with anger in her red and orange eyes. I took a few steps back away from twilight as she continued to stare at me angrily.

“ANGEL WHAT ARE YOU NOT TELLING ME?!” she said growling.

I raised both hands up to my chest. I sweated as twilight death glare made me shivered in terror. I know I face zombies, psychopaths, government monsters, a dragon and finally a large metallic wolf but none could ever scare me more than twilight’s angry look.

“Wait honey I thought applejack told you” I said cowardly. I looked at applejack and frowned

Applejack looked up at me and shooked her head. “Ah was hopin you tell her since she good with yah then me”

Twilight squinted her eyes at me. She grinned her teeth against each other as she looked at applejack then back at me. “ANGEL!”'

I rubbed the back of my neck and sighed. “Well twi I guess I should just keep it short with you. Me and applejack…. Are…. A couple likes you and me.”

Twilight looked at me dumbed struck. Did he just say applejack is angel’s marefriend too? She thought as the blazing slowly dimed down.

“I wanted to tell you twi and I forgot. With everything happening I sorta thought applejack told you and well I read in you books that it’s not rare to see a colt with two mares at once in this dimension. I’m sorry twi I didn’t tell you sooner” I bent down and looked at twi at eye level.

“I love you twilight as much as I love applejack as well. I just was so caught up with both of you I thought I told yah twi.” I slowly placed my hand on twilights chin and help raised it up. Normally I would go for the teary, beautiful, sparkling eyes she always gave me. Well actually they were angry, glaring, feral eyes that would even make zombies run in terror. I felt even more unease as she stared at me with those eyes again but this time minus the burning flaming hair.

“Angel” she said softly before lifting her hoof up a bit. “You. ARE. AN. IDIOT!” she screamed. Her hoof swift up towards my face. I didn’t have time to dodge or move out of the way from her attack and I felt the impact across my cheek. I fell back and onto my back, my head felt dazed after the impact and I laid there on the hard ground. Applejack was the first to rush towards me. Twilight stood their huffing at what she done. Her brain tried to achieve after the next scene that happen as she looked at angel’s dazed face. Applejack was locking lips with mine.

I felt dazed after the hit, my brain couldn’t process at what was happening since even though twilight spent her time reading, studying and learning magic she can still hit hard. Not as hard as rainbow dash like a few nights before but still she can hit hard. I closed my eyes hoping that the first thing I see after getting hit once was having the second hoof coming towards my face. I lifted my left hand to help support the weight of my head. As I raised my hand I stopped as I felt softness against the back of my hand, the similar softness I felt against my lips. I quickly opened my eyes and looked up. Applejack was kissing me and twilight stood their dumbstruck.

Applejack slowly let go and lick her lips as she look into my eyes. She blush a bright crimson as she stared into mine. I felt the same way I looked at her every time I look into her eyes. Hypnotize.

Applejack giggles. “Looks like ah save yah. Nothin like a good breath of life can bring a good stallion back” she smiled. She turned her head towards twilight and gives her a cheeky grin as well as sticks her tongue out at her.

Twilight looked at applejack annoyed and blushed. She then looked down at me. I was blushing bright red and smiling at applejack. Twilight gave me an angry glare and rushed to my other side. Her horn glowed a lavender color and I felt my head being lifted up by a force along with my body, my arms however were tightly squeeze together as I was lifted up. I fully rise up like I was some sort of zombie covered in a lavenderish color aura. I sat up and the aura disappears but I felt something wrap around me again. I looked to see twilight wrapping her hooves around my head again.

“I’m sorry angel I didn’t mean to hit you that hard” twilight said sweetly but looked at applejack angrily.

Applejack looked annoyed and wrapped her hooves around my head and yanked me towards her chest. Twilight hanged on as applejack yanked my head towards her. Both of them glared angrily into each eyes and both held my head tight. I wanted to speak out but I need my mouth for it and well they were covering it as they began to pull on both sides of my head.

Twilight jerked my head to her chest. “I said I was sorry now angel’s coming home to ‘MY’ house to rest applejack.”
Applejack jerked my head to her chest. “Ah beg your pardon but angel needs to come over to ‘MY’ house to rest after Ms. Bookworm here used his head as a punching bag.” Applejack said annoyed

I sighed.

*Present day*

“And what made it even more awkward is that twilight and applejack kept jerking my head over and lasted for an hour till some ponies figured out I needed to breath. And that’s not all. It had to take at least 2 ponies to pry twilight off and 4 ponies to pry applejack off my head.” I chuckled.

Rainbow dash just kept laughing as to everything that she missed. I joined in and protrokalos gave a small chuckle. Twilight however was blushing bright red on how embarrassing the way she acted in front of almost every pony in town. They both acted like small school fillies fighting over a toy. Except I was the toy.

“Yeah rainbow dash just get it out of your system.” Twilight said annoyed at rainbow dash continued to laugh. She then looked down at the couch and smiled at her ‘guest’ who was finally wide awake.

“Oh you awake” she said blushing again. “Uh you heard the story didn’t you?”

Protrokalos didn’t move his lips and just nodded. It had felt weird to see a unicorn before but seeing that is talking just makes it weird.

I managed to set the groceries down and looked at the couch and smiled.

“Hello we’re glad you’re awake. You’ve been out for a while my friend” I smiled and fixed the bangs off my head.

Protrokalos just sat their stunned and stared at me. The memories of the fight against me flourish him as I walked towards him. His body began to shiver as the memory of his crushing defeat against this man. The intense blow he taken while in his 5th form on his back and the amazing fight in his other forms as well. He stared at my face, his throat felt dry as thoughts of my other look, White hair with gold bangs, glowing white color eyes that look like two flashlights sticking apart from each other.

“I’m terribly sorry about that” I said rubbing the back of my head. “Anyways my name is joseph angel delemarte. But all my friends call me by my middle name so you can too” I gestured my hand at him.

“What’s your name?”

Protrokalos snapped out of it as he I told him his name. He shooked his head and looked up at me, twilight and rainbow dash. “Oh uh my name is protrokalos marrow and uh” he paused.

“And uh thanks for sparing me angel” he kept his gaze at the ground.

I chuckled. “no prob I’m just glad to meet another hu- um” I paused. I remembered the ‘other’ things he could do that a normal human can’t and plus his ears and tail were real since I tried to pull them off but found them to be exactly real.

Protrokalos took a deep breath and sighed. “I know I’m not human I understand it’s weird to see a creature such as myself my comrade”

I frantically waved my hands side to side. “What no no it’s not that it’s just…” I paused again and looked at the ground. My brain tried to come up with something that wouldn’t hurt his feelings or would endanger the life of his friends or the ponies of ponville. Thoughts and images of him tearing the town apart and killing everypony filled my head if I wasn’t there to stop him in the first place didn’t help.

Protrokalos shooked his head and stared at me with his red eyes. “Look American I don’t need your sympathy on what I am. I know what I am.” He lowered his head and stared at the ground.

“I’m a monster.” He closed his eyes for a brief moment.

Twilight and rainbow dash looked at him and frown. I looked at him and shooked my head. I always hated when people either call themselves something that isn’t true or call others things just for the hell of it. I grew angry that he would call himself that and stomped my foot. Protrokalos opened his eyes quickly as the sound of my stomp echoed making everyone in the room flinch even protrokalos. He looked up at my angrily glare and stared.

“Don’t you dare call yourself a monster! If anyone is a monster it’s that asshole who took advantage of you and his so call master” I said almost shouting in a growling tone.

Twilight back up as a white flowing smoke began emitting out of angel after stomping his foot. Rainbow dash couldn’t see the smoke that twi could see but she was scared as angel’s eyes went from normal happy look to a narrow anger style look that of a dragons’.

Protrokalos stared at his eyes too but something about them made him shiver uneasily as if he was looking into his soul. I shooked my head and sighed.

“Sorry I- I just don’t like when people say something horrible about themselves when it’s not true.” I smiled and rubbed the back of my head.

Protrokalos looked unamused as the human from last fight was trying to sweet talk him into thinking something else about himself but he didn’t need anybody to try to sugar coat it. He knew what he was and that’s that.

“Listen American don’t try to help me feel better about myself. I know what I am. I almost destroyed this town and everyone in it if- if you hadn’t stop me then. My question is why spare me?”

Angel looked at him with great discomfort. He was right on one thing. Even though he looks different then but minus the ears and the tail he would actually look like a human. His physical structure was indeed more muscular and his face, his clothing and his attitude definitely speaks military. I wanted to tell him why but something was prevented me from saying it. Not sure why.

“Well you see um…” I paused and took a minute to compose myself with the millions of questions that burn into my skull since the first day we brought him home from the hospital.

“Um f- first let’s uh gets to know each other first. Then angel will tell you why he did what he did?” twilight said smiling.

I turned my head around and smiled to twilight. “Yeah that’s good idea twilight. What better way to get to know each other is by asking each other past right” I said smiling.

Protrokalos looked at the ground for a few seconds before looking up at me. “sure sounds alright”

Rainbow dash did a somersault and slides herself down onto protrokalos lap. Protrokalos moved his hands up and blushed as rainbow dash got herself comfortable as she laid on his lap.

I tried to contain my laughter as I watched rainbow dash becoming softy to protrokalos. Twilight giggled and presents herself first.

“Sorry she’s not always like that. “She tried to contain her giggling as well.

She clears her throat and places her hoof on her chest. “My names twilight sparkle.” She pointed at rainbow dash. “The one on your lap that you save is ra-“protrokalos interrupted her.

“Rainbow dash. Ponivilles fastest most awesome pony.” He said smiling. Rainbow dash sat their stunned and stared into his eyes at amazement to knowing your name and who she is. Both me and twilight looked at him with surprise looks on our faces. How did he know rainbow dash if he only met her today unless he somehow was he before me. I paused and think for a moment. Twilight was the first to break the quiet moment.

“Um how did you know-” protrokalos interrupted again as twilight spoke.

“Before I explain everything I want hear your story American” he said in a serious tone.

I felt my eyebrow twitched after saying American again. I’m starting to grow annoyed of him calling me just American instead of my real name. “My names angel not American. Russian”

Protrokalos nodded. “Point taken angel.”

I grabbed one of the chairs behind me and set it in front so I was facing protrokalos. Twilight came up and rest herself onto my lap, both her hind legs and front hooves were facing my right but she turned her head till she was protrokalos. Rainbow dash just stayed where she was and placed both front hooves behind her head for leverage.

“Alright where should I begin?” I said while petting twilight head.

*everfree forest cave*


It was a week before they heard that their so call creature was defeat and already his queen was growing ever so impatient that it lost against the human yet again. Her fellow companion in chaos however grew more amused as the news about the early defeat.

“Patience my dear queen. It would seem that he’s much stronger than I would anticipate. I knew he’ll win eventually” he smiled sinisterly.

The queen slowly began to calm down and sit in her chair correctly. “I know it’s just strange that one human can defeat so many in one day. I still can’t believe he let that monster live.” She sighed.

Her companion taps his fingers and closed his eyes for a few seconds before opening them. “A monster of flesh and bone can’t stop him then let’s try a different approach. “He snapped his fingers, a large metallic sound echoed throughout the room and began to walked forward towards them.

Both the queen and her companion smiled sinisterly as their newest toy came out and reveal itself to them. “If flesh is easy to be penetrating by bullets. Why not something more..... metal. Don’t you agree my queen.” He looked up at his queen.

The queen smiled again and stared at the large figure. She then looked down at her companion. “Yes seems fair enough”

Her companion snapped his finger and the large figure left the room. As it left the queen looked at him again but this time she wasn’t smiling.

“Before we continued on with our plan. I must ask you. How do you know he’ll win? What is he to you?” his queen questions him.

He didn’t say anything for a long period of seconds before looking up at her queen. A devilish look in his eye glowed bright red as he looked up and a large smile. “Let’s say we share a bond together.”

He chuckled for a bit before his laughter grew and echoed throughout the room. His queen too laughed and the sound of both laughter echoed through the whole cave and out from outside of the cave.

*twilights place*

“And that’s how I got here.” I said finishing up my story.

Protrokalos petted rainbow dashes stomach as I finished up my story on who I was and how my life was before coming to equestria. He sat their amazed as I told him what happen to my home when the infection came and how hard it was to survive and the difficulty it is to see family, innocent, even love ones die right in front of me.

I closed my eyes as the memories that haunted me began flourish my head with every heartbreaking moment from the day I lost Amy to my years of living in the dead city. A single tear slide down my cheek and landed on twilight back. Twilight felt the cold impact on her back and flinched. She looked up my tearful face and frowned. She didn’t like seeing me cry especially telling his harsh memories that I lived through. She turns her attention to my hand which was clenching almost hard enough to draw blood again; another tear fell down landing on twilight head. She finally came up, placing her hooves on my shoulders and planted a sweet kiss on my lips.

I opened my eyes as I felt the tip of twilight’s lips brushing against mine and smiled. I brought twilight closer and hug her tight. “Thank you twilight. I really need that”

Twilight smiled and giggled. “You’re welcome angel”

Rainbow dash shooked her head and stick out her tongue. “Ugh will you two get a room.” She blech as a small saliva trail was still connected to our lips.

I looked at rainbow dash and gave a devious smile. “Oh really its grosses you out rainbow dash.” I said grinning. Rainbow dash looked at me confused.

“If I recall a few nights back didn’t you give the same gift to protrokalos here.” I began to chuckle and grin devilishly.

Rainbow dash turned a deep shade of red as I blabbed her out to protrokalos. Protrokalos face felt warmer too as the thought of her kissing him while he was out. He turned his head to the side and cover his mouth with his right, his mind filled with thoughts on both of them together and both locking lips together made him blush as red as a tomato. Even though she was a pony he still somehow grew a crush on her during the last few months of living in the everfree forest. As protrokalos was day dreaming and blushing a deeper color red rainbow dash however stand up and faced both me and twilight. Her face was still red but she was grinding her teeth together.

I felt scared as rainbow dash took off into the air just a foot off from where she laid on protokalos and stared down at me like she staring daggers at my soul. “ANGEL YOU IDIOT!” she screamed as she rushed down towards my face.

I flinched and brought my hands to my face, waiting for the impact that rainbow dash is about to deliver. (I knew I should have kept my mouth shut.) Rainbow dash race forward down, her front hooves lunged down at my head and her body went flat down straight towards me. I panicked as rainbow dash was just inches at my face before I stood their confused. Rainbow dash face was facing up and her hooves looked like she was crushed. Her back was bending till her cutie mark was almost touching her ear and her tail slowly fell down covering between her legs.

I raised an eyebrow and reached out with my hand. I felt something hard against my fingertips as I felt where rainbow dash stopped. I then looked down at twilight. Her horn was glowing and the wall shine a lavender color around where we were sitting.

Twilight scowled at rainbow dash as she slide down the force field and onto the floor. “Before you kill angel why don’t we hear protrokalos side of the story on how he came here to equestria first rainbow” her horn stopped glowing and the force field disappear.

I smiled and brought twilights face up to mine. “Thanks honey”

She was done scowling and just smiled as I brought my lips to hers again. “No problem but will you stop teasing rainbow. I really want my coltfriend in one piece not in pieces” she said nudging my shoulder.

I sticked out my tongue and gave a cheeky grin as I petted twilights mane. “Alright hon I’ll stop”

Protrokalos watched as rainbow dash slide down the force field and the human and twilight both smiling at each other. Rainbow dash finally hit the ground and began rubbing her face. Rainbow knew twilight was going to do that eventually only wish she just stopped her instead of projecting a force field and letting her ram herself into it.

Protrokalos sighed and shooked his head as he watched rainbow dash rubbed his face. He left her there for a few seconds before finally bending down and reached out with both hands on both rainbow dashes sides. Rainbow dash took one more shook before feeling something wrapping around her hips. She left them for a few heart beats before she hoisted up and onto protrokalos lap. She looked up at protrokalos face; her face turned a light shade of crimson as he looked down at rainbow and smiled.

Both me and twilight smiled as protrokalos began to pet rainbow dash ear and making her blush even more redder than before. I chuckled as rainbow dash adjusted herself till she was confortable. Protrokalos still kept petting her as she twisted her body till she almost sitting like twilight except both front and back hooves were pointing at us and she laid her chin on his left thigh. Protrokalos didn’t move as she sat herself in a more comfortable place. He then took his attention on me, his red eyes shined as rubies off the sunlight as he stared at me.

“So angel I’m sorry on how much you lost and how much you suffered. We both are similar in several ways.” He sighed

“Yeah it’s fine. We still managed right. But I don’t know how much about you. I barely know you except at what you can do.” I frowned.

“Like I said can you tell us about you protrokalos?” twilight said concerning.

Protrokalos chuckled and turned his head. “I- I can’t tell much. I can’t remember my childhood, my family, my friends nothing” he hanged his head for a few seconds.

I remember very little about my past but I knew one thing. I was the Russia’s best cop they had. The only problem was”


A large crashing sound echo through the small alley along came with a large thud. Pieces of glass fell down onto a fairly sized man. He covered his face as shards of glass began pouring down onto him, some of which sliced his hand. He quickly got up from the ground; pieces of glass scratched his palms and some became embedded into his shoes as he took off down the alley. His body filled with adrenaline as he race towards the exit, pushing garbage cans, trash bags and several broken equipment’s out of the way.

“Almost home free” he said huffing as out of breath. He grinned as the sunlight shined brighter onto his face as he drew closer out of the alley.

He felt relieve as he was almost half way through but quickly felt his body grew cold. The sound of another crashing sound echoed the alley and his body violent being pushed to the wall. He felt his head throbbed as the right side made contact to the wall and again. He felt his hair being tugged; his whole body was hoisted up into the air. He frailed his arms around trying to break free but his whole body felt being thrown again to the wall. He hit the wall but that wasn’t over there as he felt his a large pressure against his back. His back bend as it pressed him hard against the wall, the sound of bone cracking echoed in his ear as he fell to the ground. He groaned in pain; he coughed up a few drops of blood before feeling more pressure except again but this time on his face this time. He squinted his eyes up at the man.

He could see his face because he became blindsided from the sunlight but was able to see what he was wearing instead. He wore regular clothing with a black jacket, red shirt, along with some regular cargo pants and combat boots. On his waist a bright shiny police badge sat their peacefully as the man pressed his boot harder on his face and a large green wolf’s tail sway side to side slowly.

“Thought you got away didn’t yah. Didn’t you mother told you it’s not polite to steal. Especially from cops.” The man said chuckling.

The man grunted as he tried to push the man off his face. “Let me go you stupid fuck” he grunted. Poor choice or words.

The police officer continued increasing pressure on the man’s face. The sound of him screamed made him smile as he watched him trying to pry his foot off the man’s face. He crossed his arms and shooked his head.

“To bad looks like I have to teach you a lesson doesn’t It.” he lifted his foot high up. The man breath heavily as he watched the officer’s boot was lifted off his face and up to the air but stayed hovering above his face.

“Tell the devil I said hi” the officer said chuckling evilly. The man grew wide eyed as his boot quickly came down towards his face. He tried to move his hands but he wasn’t fast enough to move anything. He closed his eyes tight not wanting the impact onto his face.

“PROTROKALOS!” a shout heard at the end of the alley.

The officer stopped half way to his face and looked at where the screamed came from. The man slowly opened his eyes, he felt relieved as the boot that was half way to making his head into a pancake was away from his face. He too looked behind him at where the officer was looking. He looked up at the end of the alley at another officer but instead in a regular police outfit with his badged around his neck and a angry look in his eyes.

“YOU IDIOT! WE NEED HIM ALIVE!” he shouted angrily. As he shouted two more officers in uniform came behind him and walked towards the bleeding man.

“Thank god” he said slipping out of conscious.

*few seconds pass*

Protrokalos sat on the rail just on the other side of the street from where his suspect was captured. He crossed his arms and hanged his head as he leaned on the rail. His tail wrapped around his waist as his ear twitched. He listened in as a medic was talking to his police chief about the man’s condition. He smiled as he heard he’s alive almost due to so much pressure on his face which he cracked most of his cheek bone and several parts of his eye socket.

His commanding officer nodded as the medics told him some good news and bad news. He proceeded by saluting them as the medic got into the back as he walked towards protrokalos. Protrokalos chuckled as his commanding officer walked up to him, a large scowling angry look on his face made him laugh to how many times he has made the same face every time he sees him.

“You know I wonder how come you haven’t scared you kids with a face like that. I mean come on your face must be frozen in that same look every time we meet like this.” Protrokalos chuckled again.

His commanding officer squinted his eyes at him. “You think it’s a joke. WE ALMOST LOST OUR LEAD OF ILLEGAL WEAPONS STASH BECAUSE OF YOUR TATICS!” he raised his arm and pointed at the ambulance rolling away.

“We be damned lucky to get anything out of him any time soon.” He lowered his arm.

Protrokalos didn’t move but just smiled. “Hey you told me to get the bastard and I got him easy done alright”

His chief began to grit his teeth together. “Yes but not only that BUT HALF OF THE THEATER IS ON FIRE AND THE SMALL CHINESE RESTURANT IS BLOWN TO BITS AFTER YOU STUNT WITH THE DAMNED BUS! I still can’t believe you drove a f@#ken bus into a Chinese restaurant. A Chinese restaurant protrokalos” he said shouting.

Protrokalos laughed and patted his chiefs’ shoulder. “Well next time keeps up with me instead of keeping up with those donuts and maybe I won’t blow shit up” he poked his chiefs belly before facing the huge city.

His commanding officer slapped his face with both hands and pushed his face down and began stomping his feet all around. As his boss was having a rage quit he admired the beauty of the city.

His home is the year 3056 in Russia where Technology has increased over the last several decades since before 21st century. Today Russia now stands more than ever as the world’s largest leading army and home to much biological warfare in the entire world combine. America has been dealing with Russia for over several decades but one matter cost the increase of weaponry during the la incident that happen in 2015 where almost 95% of LA tourists, workers and citizens were turned into zombies. Later in the late 2022 a nuclear strike was order to ‘sterilize la’ forever. After the ‘incident’ America order a large number of weaponry if another attack happens again. Since then Russia became the #1 leading army recruiting in the world.

Even though his town has the largest army rate and the largest weapons depot still Russia was one of the world’s beautiful countries with its beautiful sights, music, arts and poetry. Protrokalos has always admired his countries success and just smelling the fresh air always made him feel calm. Especially even in his current state where people like him are discriminated because the way he looks. Very few people are born with animal like instincts and very few have gain animal parts such as ear’s, tails, fins, beaks, wings or gills. People who do gain them were always treated badly because they believe they were freaks of nature and all should die. Protrokalos has always been told the same shit over and over. Maybe that’s the reason why he became a cop or something like that in the first place.

He turned his head towards his boss again. He still continued to pull his hair and continued stomping all around. He laughed and continued viewing the scenery.

Chief Nicolai has been chief of police for 20 years and has worked with protrokalos for over 5 years. Over the last few years he’s been nothing but a thorn in his side and a pyro maniac to the whole city. He always wanted to fire him but he couldn’t since management forbids it because protrokalos was the best at doing his job even if it cost the city billions or trillions of dollars in damages. His men we right about one thing he does get the job done even the more suicidal jobs too but he wished he doesn’t have to cost the station billions of dollars because he doesn’t know the word enough when it comes to a situation.

As chief Nicolai was busy having a rage moment on the huge bill for the repairs that protrokalos had done one of his officers walked up to him.

“Uh sir sorry to interrupt but” the officer said tapping chiefs shoulder.

Commander stopped and looked at the officer. The officer stood before him and held a phone up for him.

“Station wants to talk to you about something important.” He said handing to phone to Nicolai.

He grabbed the phone from the officer and began speaking through it. “Yes hello”

Protrokalos looked at his captain who began to speak through the phone. He tried to listen in but sadly the phone had a special sound attachment that prevents protrokalos form hearing through but he knew he was talking about him since his captain said ‘yes he’s here’ as he talked on the phone.

The captain hanged up the phone and looked at protrokalos. “Station says someone is there and wants to speak to you now” he points behind him. “Get going or else you’ll be scrubbing floors for an entire year after the stunt you caused today”

Protrokalos nodded and smiled. “Alright I’ll head down there ‘AFTER’ I get myself something to eat” he chuckled.

His commanding officer twitched his eyebrow and took his gaze off him for a second before returning back. “GET BACK TO BASE OR I SWEAR I’LL MAKE YOU SCRUB THE BRIDGES WITH A DAMNED TOOTH BRUSH!” he shouted

Protrokalos put up his hands in a defensive position. “Alright alright I’m going” he said as he walked to his car.

Chief Nicolai just stood there as he heard the sound of a car starting and finally taking off behind him. He sighed and groaned. “I hope whoever they are gives that asshole for what he deserves here.” He raised both arms both to his sides and stared up into the sky

“What else can go wrong here?” he said slouching down. As he slouch another officer came up with and unease on his face.

Nicolai looked at the officer and raised an eyebrow. “What is it officer?”

He smiled crookly and looked at him with worried eyes. “Uh well sirs uh remember the crash at the Chinese restaurant.” He said in a worried tone

Nicolai nodded. “Yes why?”

The officer scratches the back of his head and kept his gaze away from his commanding officer. “Uh well sir. The bus caught fire and well the fire spread and destroyed the small café shop next door. The owner is requesting over 3 billion in dollars for the repairs and replacements the fire destroyed.” He felt his body grew cold as he turned his head towards his commanding officer.

Nicolai didn’t moved, his left eye twitched and he looked at the officer with a surprised face.

As protrokalos drove off the base he could have sworn he heard his name called in an angry tone from over 100 feet away.

After dodging traffic jam from the police and firefighters that were busy dealing with the fire spread from the Chinese shop to the small café shop he finally made it to the station. He causally got out of his car and walked up the steps and into the police station.

Inside the police station there were a few desks scattered around. All each were facing in front of a fairly large pillar with several monitors on it. Each monitor had a specific case and or map in which several detectives were busy using to track done suspects, locations and murder scenes and car thefts all over Moscow. One detective however from the rest of them sits comfortably in his chair with his legs sitting on top of the desk. A large cup of coffee laid on one hand while a jelly donut sat in his other.

He sighed and turned his head to the captain’s quarters. Several men in suits sat patiently inside as well as his captain brass who sits at his front desk discussing with the men. He sighed and lifted the jelly donut up to his face. The sweet aroma from the frosting made his mouth watered. He licked his lips and brought the donut up to his mouth and held it for a few seconds.

As he was about to feel the sweet softness from the dough and the raspberry flavor filling that supposedly will take him to heaven was replace with cold hard and sharp pain of his teeth hitting on against each other. The stinging from his teeth flowed throughout his whole mouth which he let out a low groan and covered his mouth with his other hand.

He held his mouth as the stinging faded. He looked at his empty hand and around the room. A familiar face smiled down at him holding the jelly donut between his thumb and his index finger.

Protrokalos stood there staring at his former partner and chuckled as he held the donut in front of his face. “You know if you keep eating these and superman couldn’t see right through you. Oh that’s right he can’t” he chuckled and gave the donut back to his partner.

His partner felt annoyed as to his smart remarks and sarcasm. But like everyone else around his unit he has sort of gotten use to how protrokalos acts around the world. “Oh ha ha I forgot to laugh.” He said sarcastically and proceeded to point towards the captains’ quarters.

“Captain Brass and a few other suits are looking for you.” He took a sip of his coffee before looking up at protrokalos.

“Listen here protrokalos. Keep your guard up. I don’t trust these guys” he said concerning.

Protrokalos looked at his partner and raised an eyebrow at him. “Why what you know about these guys?”

He shooked his head. “Not sure except they called themselves S.A.N.I.T.Y organization and I’m not sure what that spells.”

“I think I know. It stands for sugar and nachos indulging tons in yards.” Protrokalos laughed.

His partner punched protrokalos arm. “I’m serious man. I haven’t seen these guys in my life. nobody has. Just keep on you guard with these guys”

Protrokalos waved his hand and shooked at head side to side. “Yeah yeah eat your damned donut you lard fat” he causally walked towards the captains’ quarters but turns after hearing his name in an anger tone.

His partner pointed his finger at him “hey just to let you know.” He taps his hand with his chest. “I lost 30 pounds this week. So you can’t say shit”

Protrokalos put his hand in his pocket and smiled deviously. “Pull up your shirt I think I found them” he laughed and went inside the captains’ quarters.

His partner groaned and flipped him off as he went inside. “SCREW YOU.” He shouted and quickly took a bit from his donut. “bastard” he said softly while eating it.

Protrokalos walked inside and looked around. His captain sat at his desk and folded his hands as he looked up at him. The other two men sat in the guest chairs and faced as protrokalos shut the door behind him.

“Ah protrokalos you finally came. I’m surprise you survive after the stunt you made with a bus today” he closed his eyes and gestured protrokalos to sit down at one of the other guest chairs. “Please sit. These men want to talk to you in private.”

Captain brass stood up from his chair and walked up to protrokalos. He stopped next to protrokalos and stood facing the door. He whispered softly. “Be careful protrokalos” he said leaving the room.

Protrokalos didn’t say a word as he left the room. His words made him felt unease as he took his attention at the men in suits. he always trust his captain since the first day on the force and when it comes to these types of men it’s best to be on guard on what they do or what they offer. Protrokalos took his seat in one of the chairs on the walls, he kept his gaze at both men sitting down and staring at him.

Both men were wearing pure dark black suits with black ties and black shoes. They both looked to be old bout in there 40 or 50’s with dark brown hair and tannish complex. They both also wore sunglasses and a head piece around there left ear that stood to be FBI of sorts but one thing made sure they weren’t FBI both had a badge on their left collar. Protrokalos stared at the emblem for a few seconds and wonder who they work for, It resemblance a hand with an eye in the middle on it.

“Good evening protrokalos. I trust that you are having a good day am I correct.” One of the men in suits spoke in calm tone.

Protrokalos shooked his head and looked at the men “yeah went by like any other day” he chuckled softly.

Both man looked at each other nodded. “Well Mr. Marrow I’m glad it went well especially the little scene you made down near the theater today. I must say you got quite the talent there” one man smiled and rubbed his chin.

Protrokalos never felt fear in his whole life when he first joins the force but now he started to feel a little apprehensive as both men smiled at him.

Few minutes pass by. Finally after 10 minutes of watching protrokalos one of the men pulled out a brief case and presented it onto his lap. Protrokalos stared as the man held the case with both hands, a large cuff link connected from the handle to his arm as he presented it to protrokalos.

“Now we know you are an impatient man so we’ll keep it short about why we are here and why you are here with us as well.” he taps fold his hands together and tap his thumbs together.

“You see protrokalos we’re from a special organization called S.A.N.I.T.Y. You’ll know what it stands for after our little ‘offering’.”

Protrokalos looked at him unamused. “Offering huh? What offering?” he said crossing his arms together.

The man I suit chuckled at protrokalos before clearing his voice. “An offering you won’t regret.” He smiled devilishly.

“now let me first introduce ourselves. You may refer me m and this is my partner s. our names are un aunthorize till end of discussion.” Mr. m said

Protrokalos looked at the men and raised an eyebrow. “m and s. really. You sure it’s not s and m” he chuckled.

S looked at protrokalos and chuckled. “a man with a sense of humor. Guess we should have seen that coming” he said smiling.

Mr. m cleared his throat. “Alright enough jokes let’s get down to business. You see our organization is how you say secret from the world. Nobody knows of our work but those of us knows of our work”

“As in what work? Give me something specific” protrokalos said questionably

Mr. M tried to speak but Mr. s interrupted. “You remember the incident years ago during the incident where china was engulfed in outbreak similar to LA outbreak but almost destroyed half of the country right. We were ones that stopped it from spreading.”

Protrokalos sat there, a surprised look in his eyes as Mr. S told him their work. Years ago after la was sanitized, another outbreak occurred in the heart of china resulting in over 30% of china’s population becoming the undead. But after three months it was stopped and china managed to regain and repair its tremendous loss against the undead. Nobody knows who or what started the outbreak and what killed off the infected. Few survivor’s however explain that they saw several men bought bout 4,5,6 men in some type of high tech armor went through all over through each parts of china, killing off every single undead and mutant in sight.

“So you guys did the clean up over in china huh. I’m impress. A little” he said crossing his arms. “So let me guess you are here to recruit me is that it.”

Mr. M and Mr. S both looked at each other and nodded before turning towards protrokalos. A little devilish grin stretched their faces.

“He caught on quite quick then the last one don’t you agree Mr. m?” Mr. s said calmly.

Mr. M nodded softly. “Yes he has Mr. S. The only question is will he join? As you can see our time is short and since protrokalos has better things to do all we need is an answer.”

Protrokalos watched as they sat comfortably on the chairs. He sat their surprised as they would recruit them even though he doesn’t know anything about them except they were the ones to stop the outbreak years ago. He doesn’t even know if they were watching him or they knew anything about him or his life.

He sighed. “Why should I join you even though I don’t know anything else about you guys or your organization?”

Mr. M sighed as well softly. “You’ll find out about us if you accept in working for us.”

Protorklaos shooked his head and got up from his seat. “Listen I don’t join anybody I don’t know so take you tidy ass out of my captains office and leave.” He walked towards the door but stop mid-way from opening it.

Mr. S watched him as he walked to the door and opened it slightly. “We know that you’re sick of people thinking you’re a monster. We can change that.” He softly tapped his finger onto the briefcase on his lap.

Protrokalos stood their half way from opening the door. He didn’t move and just stared at the ground. For many years he was called a monster and for many years before and during the force they only acknowledge as only a monster. He had always felt alone since then and always been treated badly than anyone else because of his appearance. And for someone saying they can help change that stopped him there. His mind wonders on images and thoughts of people accepting him for who he was and not what others think about him from the outside. He stood there for a few seconds before slowly closing the door.

Mr. S and Mr. M smiled as protrokalos shut the door softly and sat back down into his seat in front of them.

“How do you plan on changing that?” protrokalos said softly.

Mr. M and Mr. S managed to hear protrokalos question even and began to answer.

“Simple we’re going to train you to becoming more ‘advance’ then most of the leading training you had. By the time we’re done you will be unsta- I mean loved by the people of each and every country.” Mr. S causally opened the briefcase and pulled out a small piece of paper and a pen.

“All you need to do is sign here” Mr. M held out the pen towards protrokalos.

Protrokalos stared at Mr. M for a few minutes and then at the pen. His mind filled with the decision of being better than just a cop and actually gets recognized for his work and just being staying the way he was and always get yelled and ignored. He compose himself before looking at the pen and reach out. At first protrokalos mind filled with thoughts of being stronger, faster, smarter made him feel confident about the idea but they soon seized as he felt a sharp pain in the middle of his index finger.

Mr. M who held the pen as protrokalos reached out for it watched as his fingers reached at towards his. With a small precise aiming he took aim at one of the fingers. In a quick motion he pulled back the pen and lunge the pens tip towards protrokalos index finger. The tip of the pen was sharp and went through the skin and through muscle.

Protroklaos retracted as the pen went deep into his finger. “OW BASTARD!” he shouted and looked at his finger. Small drop of blood oozed out from his tip and down his finger. He raised his finger over his mouth to stop the bleeding but stopped as he felt his something wrap around his wrist. Mr. s grabbed his hand before he placed in next to his mouth. He slowly twirled his palm around, blood from his finger begin to drip onto the carpet. He slowly brought his finger till it was touching the end where the signature was.

“Please use your blood. It’s more ‘accurate’ then a simple signature.” He smile stretched to both cheeks as he drew protrokalos finger to the contract.

Protrokalos lowered his pricked finger down onto the contract. Slowly he begins to sign the contract. Mr. S took the signed contract and put it back into the briefcase. Protrokalos liked the blood from his finger before speaking up. “So what now?”

Mr. S removed his sunglasses and slowly opened his eyes, his left glowed a greenish glowed all around his eye while the other eye glowed bright red. Protrokalos heart sped up a bit as he could swore he saw something dark lurking within both eyes.

“Now you’re one of us now?” he said softly but almost in a demonic tone.


“That was twelve years ago when I made that grave mistake of signing that contract” protrokalos stared down at the couch. He tried to fought back his tears as told his greatest mistake. Rainbow dash sighed and stared up at his watery eyes.

I stood silent as I petted twilight’s mane. I knew he was fighting back tears because of the way his head was covering his eyes with his headband.

A long silent filled the air, nobody made a sound well nobody dare wanted too.

I managed to break it... somehow.

“What happen then?” I said softly but concerned.

Protrokalos managed a small but depressing smile before looking up at me. His red eyes looked almost watery as though he fought every inch of holding back his tears. “Well I don’t know how to explain it to you but I can tell you this. The last twelve years I experience would even make the gods cry. The horrific nightmares I endured, the many experiments’ my body was introduce.” He took his gaze away from me and stared down at the floor.

“The millions of lives that suffered… because of me” he took his hands off rainbow dash and stared at them. “these hands shed so much blood it- it felt like the part of the world was bleeding because- because of what they did to me.”

I shooked my head. “God” I stared at him in disbelief. My thoughts of thinking should I have let such a dangerous man like himself live still came to question. I took my eyes off him and began to think of why would I let him live. He indeed was dangerous when fighting him several days ago. I thought of finishing him off there but something in said I should keep him alive and it was not his fault he’s like this. Only one question can prove it and I hope he says the rights answer.

“Were you given a choice?” I said almost in a low serious tone.

Protrokalos let out sigh and looked up at me. His red eyes started to glow a bit before finally speaking. “No”

I let out a small ounce of relief. This meant that even though he’s dangerous in almost every way he still has a heart. One that manipulated and controlled by the people who changed him. I looked up towards protrokalos face, he showed certain of unease as if he was reading my mind or he could tell what I’m thinking from just looking at my face expression.

“I’m sorry i-“I was cut off as he raised his hand.

“No need to be sorry. After all I’m just as surprise as you are.” Protrokalos lowered his head and began stroking rainbow dashes mane.

“Why? You seem alright to me?” rainbow dash looked up at protrokalos.

Protrokalos looked at her questionably. “What’s your definition of me being alright?”

“She thinks your awesome protrokalos. After all I have to agree with her that fight plus you saving her was awesome” twilight giggled

Protrokalos cheeks flush a bit and smiled. I chuckled and nodded. “ I have to agree that’s a fight I will be remembering for a long time” I rubbed my forehead, my skull was still healing after my forehead met with his.

Protrokalos rubbed the back of his neck. Even though he was controlled he wasn’t mind controlled to do all the fighting. He wished he was.

“Uh yeah sorry about that ame- I mean angel”

I sighed “eh heh no worries. It’s ok. The important thing is that everyone is ok even you that’s important”

“Which leaves the final question that I know you want me to answer?”

Twilight nodded. “Yes. How did you come to equestria? I mean angel came because of me.”

“How did you came is what twilight is asking?”

Protrokalos face showed a more amused tone as he looked at us. A small smile spread across his face made me feel a little unease. He looked as though he could scare a full grown lion just smiling that.

“I can’t answer that nor explain how I got here. The only thing I can remember was the beginning of a violent massacre, then getting shot, and finally waking.”

“I guess we both are alike. We were both almost dying men” he chuckled one last time before speaking the last few images of his final mission.

*3068 over Russia*

“I can’t believe Russia’s falling. This cannot be happening”

“Believe it hothead. Just hope we can stop this before Russia lost.”

“Gonzalez a Hothead? I thought protrokalos was the hothead here. He’s always the asshole that charges first and asks questions later”

Protrokalos looked over at shears with anger in his eyes, his grip wrapped around the end of his katana. “Keep yapping and you’ll lose more than just your tongue.” He slowly pulled his weapon up a bit the blade shined against the light from inside of the aircraft.

Shears one of alpha teams’ top best sharp shooter and protrokalos partner in war gave a devious grin towards protrokalos. A large .38 colt python with an attachable red dot scope point towards protrokalos head.

“I wouldn’t do that. After all I don’t think you want end like the last guy that pissed me off” he cocked his weapon and both stared down at each other. Few minutes pass before both protrokalos weapons were out of their hands. Both shears and protrokalos looked around for their weapons before looking at their commanding officer.

Shear ginned as commander riverwood used the end of protrokalos katana and slammed it against his head before doing the same thing to shear’s head with his weapon.

“KNOCK IT OFF MAGGOTS! IF I WANT YOU DEAD I’LL DO IT MYSELF!” he throws both weapons back to owners.

Everyone else started to chuckled but stopped as their commanding officer stared daggers at everyone.

“ALRIGHT LISTEN UP! You all must have heard. Russia’s falling and both beta and delta teams couldn’t stop the attack.”

As both sides watched their captain made their way towards the end of the aircraft a small tv turned on and revealed a broadcast. A Russian reporter begins to speak through as short vids showed destruction of the mother land. Buildings crumble, innocent run and what seems to be infected and some type of creatures that resemblance humans but with horrible disfigured faces and other limbs race through the streets attacking anything that moves.

One of the creatures that race through the streets spotted the camera man and rushed towards him. His face was horribly disfigured with several black spots and what appear to be several more eyeballs all around its face. Shears begins to laugh as the vid stops right where it’s face was in front of the camera’s lenses.

“HA looks protrokalos and swift’s face mixed together. Priceless” he continued laughing.

Protrokalos grinded his teeth at shears smartass comment; his grip tightened on his weapon begging for blood. Swift team alpha’s top demolition expert sat next to protrokalos and grew unamused at shears comment too. His aa-12 gripped tightly in his hands as he growled, several puffs of smoke from his cigar hovered over his head but he did not say a word.

“SHUT UP SHEARS THIS IS IMPORTANT! Now these ‘things’ you see here we just call them mutant’s for now. Almost 80% of these things are running amuck around our home is out there infecting anything insight.”

He taps his finger against the screen of the tv. Another image revealed a large map like structure of the entire city. Several large red circles covered most of the city while some stayed a light bluish color.

“As you can see Russia’s not doing so well. We’re not sure on where they originated from but I can assure that we will be the ones the ‘clean’ up the streets.” He points at each member of the team.

The first was redfield who was the team’s best recon and satellite surveillance operative. He was a crazy sort always carefully looking around and truly was a coward. Even the smallest bit of out of the ordinary like a crack noise or the sound of something snapping freaks him out and he’ll go into a frenzy, shooting anyone or anything in sight. He was however good with scouting ahead and had almost everything to scan through air, land and through sea.

The second was summer aka bitch you don’t want to fuck with. She was their best runner and always quick on her feet. She so fast that she could even out run a jet without breaking a sweat. But as her speed became faster so did her temper who gradually will shift from happy to angry in a matter of seconds maybe not even. She only gets mad well for whatever reason since mostly she’s always crazy but when she’s steamed…. Well all I can say is you better start running to a jet soon or at least hope you’ll get a 5 minute head start.

The last one their commanding officer pointed was swift out team’s demoman.

“Redfield, summer and swift will take the north end of city.”

Shears cheered and began to laugh. “Hell yeah. Finally I don’t get stuck with Redfield again.” he chuckled again. Commander riverwood looked over towards shear, a devilish grin shifted on his face that made shear feel uncomfortable in the situation. He stopped laughing and gulped as riverwood pointed at him then…. To protrokalos and finally skinner.

“Alright if you want to laugh about that then I’m putting you, protrokalos and skinner together. You’ll both take the middle of the city.” He smiled again.

“And the rest will go with me on the south side of the city.”

Protrokalos looked at his commanding officer; his jaw fell as he heard that he was teaming up with shears the one person he truly hated. Shears gave the same looked but knew not to argue with his commander since he’s the only one that gives the orders and nobody should question or refuse from him. Last time he refused he woke up with all his limbs broken and his head almost caved in.

He sighed and looked over towards skinner who was sitting next to protrokalos. She was teams’ top medic and top scientist with the brain of a supercomputer. Parts of her body have been replaced by machinery including parts of cranium. One of her eyes was computerize to help scan and read fast computerized data without missing a single letter. She was mostly calm whenever the situation gets hasty and whenever it becomes any worse than before she always finds a plan to get out of the situation even with their captain is present. She does get along with everyone but mostly she gets along with protrokalos after one fatal day where a mission went wrong and she was stranded in North Korea for 2 weeks. After 2 long weeks protrokalos couldn’t take it anymore and without the commissioners permission protrokalos stormed into the North Korea’s military headquarters’ and begin torching the whole facility and everyone and everything in it. it was there that skinner was saved after two weeks of tortured she was finally freed and carried out by protrokalos. It was after that day she grew a somewhat crush with him. Even though he was kept away from everyone else back at base she truly cared about him then most of the other teammates.

Protrokalos looked over to skinner but couldn’t see her face; her face was turned to the side so she couldn’t show. Her face was now a nice shade of red.

Protrokalos couldn’t understand why she acted like this when he’s working with her or hell even looking at her but like always he didn’t care. As long as his blade tasted blood.

20 minutes went by quick and already they were over the city. The first stop was to drop redfield and his team down on the north end of city. Next protrokalos and his team were over city hall. With one final Russian cheer protrokalos and his men all jumped out of the air craft carrier. Having his bones enhanced through various chemical and biotechnical chemicals using the rope was just too slow for him. Shears ignored him as he took a quick but suicidal trip down to earth.

“Show off” he said as he continued to slide down earth. Skinner followed behind.

Protrokalos shut his eyes as his descent down towards earth. Down towards earth the drop zone was cleared of enemy hostiles for a few seconds before several mutant’s began running through the drop off zone. A few infected scattered around and some began tugging on his teams ropes, one particular stood right where protrokalos was to land.

It’s teeth bared as it snarl, it’s eyes bugged out, darting everywhere looking for a slab of rotten meat or something that breaths to sink it’s teeth into. It turns it head quickly all around the area till he finally looked up. He looked up and turned his to the side as the object fell down towards earth and a break neck speed. It just stared at it as it’s head caved in, and it’s back ripped out from his lower pelvic. Blood and brains splattered all around hitting the walls and the other infected.

The infected all directed their attention onto the brain splattering that none were focused on protrokalos and his blade swifting around in a 360 and ending it with his blade back in his sheath. The sound of the blade clicking back inside caused blood to rain all around him none managed to stain his combat gear. Protrokalos had his eyes shut as the blood rain finally stopped and opened them as the sound of bodies hitting against concrete.

Protrokalos scanned the area for anymore hostiles. Thankfully none were spotted but the sight of destruction and smell of decomposition stenched the air. War brew around him and only the faint screaming echoed through the sky. His mind focused on his surroundings, the sound of footsteps and another body hitting the ground caught his attention. He took his gaze away from the exit and looked behind him. He grew a small smile, an expression he’d never made in the last 15 years of being on the force.

Skinner ready her weapon as the cable wire detached from the rope. She stared down at the other end of the rope along with shears laying on the ground, his left hand putting leverage on his anti- tank rifle while the other rubbed the back of his head.

Protrokalos looked up at the ropes, of all three ropes one was shorter, and the end of the shorter rope was cut. “Enjoy the drop?”

Shears shooked his head and slowly lifted his weapon off his stomach. “asshole” he finally got up and picked up his rifle.

Skinner shooked her head and looked up. With a circle motion with her hand the cable wires detached and the carrier flew off towards the east side.

As their ride flew off protrokalos, shears, and skinner ready their weapons as a wave of infected began pouring into the entrance. As skinner and shears pointed their weapons at the horde protrokalos however smiled and gripped the handle of his prized weapon.

“heh this may be fun”

Back inside the air carrier their commanding officer held onto the flight controls. He didn’t wore the head piece and only flew for a few seconds before letting go of the controls and making his way to the parachute locker. He quickly and carefully walked over the remaining members laying on the floor. Blood pooled around their heads and some caught onto his boots as he open the locker and pulled out an unused parachute. After attaching it onto his suit he grabbed the door handle and looked behind him at his men.

“Sorry boys nothing personal” a click sounded as he opened the aircraft hatched. “It’s only business”

With one more sighed his body felt lighter and finally felt like a rock falling down over a waterfall. His body fell towards earth at a break neck speed. His eyes close as he reached out with his right hand grabbed the cord connecting to the chute. With a little force he yanked it, the chute released and his body slowly departed down at a nearby building. As he descends towards the city, a large flash shined through the sky behind him but he didn’t pay much attention to it.

Without any regard to self he removed the chute off of him and landed straight on top of the building. The only thing he did was fixed his gear while a large bombing sound echoed behind him. Fire crackles and pieces of static shined behind. He didn’t turn his body but slowly turned his head behind him and smiled.

“Like I said before. Only business.” He said in a devilish tone.

The sound of fire crackles and electricity static echoed as he walked away from what’s left of his ride.

*several hours later at city hall*

Several hours passed as protrokalos, shears and skinner made their way inside city hall. More mutant’s race towards protrokalos none made at least 10 inches from them. They were busy having their heads rolling down onto the steps along with their bodies. Shears followed alongside protrokalos but kept his distance from his blade. The sound of flesh tearing apart along with a large explosion echoing as every shot his anti-tank rifle fired. Skinners rifle fired at more individual hostels, after more shots her weapon stopped.

“What the?” she quickly looked at the side of her weapon, a single used cartridge lodge in the recoil chamber.

“DAMMIT!” she screamed. She quickly turned her gun to the side and pulled onto the recoil slot. The slot didn’t move as she tried to remove the cartridge. She tried wiggling bullet out but nothing. As she tried prying it out a random mutant spotted her and rush towards her without her knowing.

It felt as time slowed down all around her. Her body stopped as flashbacks shot through her head. Memories of her previous life as a technical technician at a small company in the city of la, to making the deal with two suits to finally the many cybernetic implants that was inflicted onto her body and brain. Even though the horrible cybernetic had altered her physically she had managed to retain several emotions through several chips hooked up into her brain.

Some of her memories and emotions she cherished were made from one particular soldier. The same soldier who took the liberty to eliminate to hostel that rushes towards her. His blade slide back into its shaft. With a small shake he slowly shooked skinner’s shoulder and helped dislodged the cartridge out of the recoil.

“Hey pay attention skinner.”

Skinner shook her head and looked at protrokalos. “Sorry protrokalos. I lost my train of thought there.”

Protrokalos shooked his head. He knew that skinner rarely to never loses train of thought when on the job but every time you are teamed up with her it’s almost like it’s a daily thing. “Listen skinner we’re a team but if you keep doing this. That’s going to get us all kill here” he pats her shoulder and walks up towards the main entrance of city hall, shears follows behind protrokalos leaving a blushing operative down at the middle of the steps.

She snaps out of it and makes inside as both shears and protrokalos barricaded the entrance. And blocking the entrance with several desks, tables and filing cabinets both they all went through each room, looking for any signs of survivors.

As they went through each room one particular room stood out from all of them. Skinner went inside the large conference room, a large box sat on top of the table along with several wiring attached around it. Skinner slowly walked towards it, after scanning her surroundings she opened it. There layed a recon surveillance hacking software computer, highly equipped technology that only a few are rarely heard of in the entire world. Now this high tech computer is on the table of the conference room fully laid out as if someone left it there for her to find it.

“How the hell this got here.” She quickly set her gun down and began typing up information. Protrokalos searched each room before entering the conference room. He spotted skinner on the computer and walked beside her.

“All rooms clear. Looks like they got out in time… I hope” he sighs and looks at skinner who was popping several surveillance footage of the entire city.

“Where did this come from?” he said questionably.

“That’s what I said.” She said as she looked around seeing only protrokalos are herself were present.

“Where’s shear’s?”

Protrokalos shrugged his shoulders. “Not sure he said he’s checking the east wing. I check to see where he is now” he taps his head piece and begins calling shears. Skinner continues typing up every piece information she could drain out of it seeing any connection of this outbreak and where bouts of any survivors. As she looked at each surveillance camera a piece footage caught her eye and filled her with fear.

“p- protorkalos” she said almost as she saw a ghost.

Protrokalos gave up and groan. After numerous tries of contacting shears he finally gave up. He looked up and at skinner who was glued on the monitor. Her hair looked as though it was standing up. He casually walked up beside her and looked at the monitor.

“What is it?” he said questionably.

Skinner replayed a video footage at the north side of the city. The footage showed Redfield and his teams were all running away through a company building. As they race through the building another figure reached the doors. He wore a military armor along with knee pads and a bangay hat. Skinner could see he smiled before pulling out his pistol and firing at each of Redfield’s men in the head. They all fell to the ground dead as he left them to be dined one. Several infected rushed over tearing the bodies apart and slowly devouring them.

Both protrokalos stared at the video as skinner rewind at the man again. They started at him for several seconds at who it was.

“th- that’s” skinner said in disbelief

“Commander redwood.” Protrokalos said in disbelief as well

Skinner shooked her head as to what she saw. Their own commander has shot his own men and left their bodies for the infected to snack on them. Protrokalos took his off the monitor, his thoughts could comprehend the sight he just witness. Skinner scanned through various video footages to see where he is now; footage shows him entering the back end of city hall and started up the stairs. He was inside city hall and was up on the roof. Skinner took her eyes off the computer screen and called out protrokalos. As she took her eyes off the monitor another video footage shows shears inside a room. His rifle pointing towards the wall as though waiting for his target.

“Protrokalos commander redwood is here.” Protrokalos looked at her; a nasty angry looked in his eyes made her flinched and back away a bit.

“Where?” he said coldly.

Skinner gulped and spoked. “He’s up on the roof. If we move we ca-“the sound of explosion echoed throughout the room but I didn’t stop there. The last thing was seeing skinner’s entire left arm and part of her shoulder exploded off its socket and she came tumbling down onto the ground. Protrokalos couldn’t react in time of the explosion but he managed to grab skinner before she hit the floor. Another explosion echoed again but this time the sound of something beeping echoed as protrokalos looked up. The computer had a large hole on its side and the beeping grew louder.

In such short minutes he turned and dash at the stainless glass. The computer behind him shot him through carrying and skinner a good few meters off. He held onto skinner with his life. He slowly twirled his body till he landed on the floor against his back. The force from the explosion and his impact gave weight from the floor and soon felt him hit the floor again on the first floor.

Protrokalos coughed as dust filled his lungs, his tried to lift himself up but his body ached from being carried by an explosion, landing on the second floor and then down at the first floor. He shooked his head and looked down at skinner. She was shaking profoundly, her bleeding was growing uncontrollably. He quickly got up onto his feet and carried her to somewhere safe.

Up on the second floor shears smiled devilishly at the two fairly large holes that lead through 3 offices and stopped in the middle of the conference room. After blowing the smoked off his rifle his next destination was the roof.

Protrokalos carried skinner through the building and towards the middle gardens. The gardens was a huge area with an open sky lined with a large tree in the middle and several patches of flowers all array red velvet roses to exotic fly trappers and puff flowers. Protorkalos slowly walked up to the tree and sat her down gently. As he sat her down he started working on her injuries. Her mechanical body managed to go into self-repair but due decapitation of her entire left arm and most of her left shoulder she had lost a lot of blood. He grabbed a portion of his jacket and ripped it off and applied pressure onto the bleeding flesh with it, but sadly the bleeding was simmering down. Skinner managed to open her eyes and looked up at protrokalos.

Protrokalos looked into her eyes, they were started to lose color fast. She was dying fast.

“Oh gods rooky don’t die on me. We’ll make it out of here. I promise.” For so long he’s has seen many individuals including his own men died and never has he ever shed a tear from his eyes or show any emotion towards anyone for the last several years. But this was different this time, for so long he and for so many years he finally felt something slide down across his face. a lone tear slide down across his face and landed on skinners emblem on her leg.

Skinner felt all around her being lifted, breathing became raspy and she was having trouble breathing. Death was waiting for her. She managed to open her eyes and looked up towards a hooded man wearing nothing but a large cloak and black hoodie. His face was black as darkness but she could see him carrying a large scythe in both hands.

It offered its hand signaling for her to go with him. Her eyes became watery but she managed to look at protrokalos and smiled.

“Before I go can I just tell him this for one second? Please” she pleaded.

The figure nodded and she was back only for a few seconds. She opened her eyes to see protrokalos trying to stop the bleeding and saying he’s getting her out of there safely. She smiled and grabbed his arm.

Protrokalos stopped as he felt skinner hand around his wrist. He looked up at her watery eyes. “Don’t worry we’re going to make it ok. Just hold on for a lit-“he was cut off as his lips were connecting with hers. She had savor for this moment for far too long and finally it’s all coming true. Protrokalos couldn’t think straight at all. His mind couldn’t process after everything they went through together he never knew she liked him more the just an operative or more the just a friend. They savored the special moment for a few seconds before letting go.

Skinner and protrokalos looked at each other with teary eyes, none wanted for this to happen.

“I- I’m sorry. B-b- but I- I hav- I have to go now” she said sniffling.

Protrokalos shooked his head violently. “No… no no no. I can’t lose you. Please. I’ll stop the bleeding and I’ll carry you out of here. We’ll leave this country. Start a new life, a home, a family, just you and me. Please” he said pleading again but this time his eyes were streamed with tears. He had never felt like this to anyone before but somehow he knew he felt some type of connection with her but didn’t know what it was. He now knows and wishes for it to not end.

Skinner smiled one last time, a small tear fell down her cheek and onto protrokalos hand. “I love you protrokalos…… goodbye” she said one last time before falling into an eternal slumber.

Protrokalos said her name again and again. He violently shooked her to wake up. More tears slide down his cheeks. He couldn’t hear her heart beat anymore. He cried more and more. For so long he had felt his body, mind and heart turn icy cold from everything that has happen in his life. And now the moment that somebody who actually cared and loved him made him see the difference in life after so many years.

His sadness slowly became anger for the man for not just killing his own teammates but the one that truly loved him. His emotions turned to rage on killing everyone at headquarters filled his thoughts of revenge. But most of all his commanding officer must suffered for everything he took from him. All of this pent of rage he felt inside him was all caused as he felt the muzzle of a gun against the back of his head. A low chuckled sickened him as he slowly got up from his spot.

He didn’t have to turn his head to know who was making the chuckle. He recognized it for so many years of working with him. The bastard and his damned rifle. Shears.

Shears held his colt pointing dead center of protrokalos’s head. A sickly grin spread across his face as he got up. “opps sorry splitting you guys apart. But hey accidents happen” he said laughing.

Protrokalos didn’t say anything as he heard the monsters messed up voice. He wants revenge on his commander but first skinners killer must pay dearly.

“I must say if I knew you two were intimate together I would have just blowed your head as well so you could join with her as well. But I can’t because commander redwood would have my hide if I did.”

“so you were working with him this whole time. You f@#ked up bastard” he said coldly.

Shears laughed. “Yeah I was. But hey we all do for the money and besides I get more then I could ever want now. We’re all in the same basket boy.”

“But for now commander redwood wants to see you now. I’ll show you to him” shears made the ultimate mistake. He approaches closer towards protrokalos to grab his weapons’. His couldn’t move his arms or legs, at each ends he screamed from intense pain inflicted at each joint. He soon finds himself on the floor. His back felt wet and he couldn’t move at all. He tried moving his arms and his legs but nothing. His arms and legs sat disconnected and spread apart from his discarded body.

He panicked as he laid in his own blood, he frantically looked at all his limbs that which were all separated from his body. He violently looked around till a faint click sound caught his attention. His neck felt pressured all around it, the pressure kept him from screaming or talking. His discard body slowly lifted up and stared into the eyes of a devil. His body felt cold as his red eyes shined thus of a demon. For a few seconds he stared at it before he couldn’t see anymore. His body felt cold as it hit the pavement, both halves fell on opposite sides of his body.

Protrokalos stared at the sliced body then back at skinner. With one more sighed he walked over and started digging.

An hour later protrokalos sat next to skinners grave. His blade and with a piece of shears clothes he made a makeshift cross against the tree. After putting a bunch of roses on the ground he wrapped his fingers around each other, several tears slide down his face and onto the roses. He turn his attention to the discarded body on the side that started to collect fly’s all around, several maggots were in already embedded into the torn flesh of his former traitor.

“Goodbye skinner” he slowly got up and walked towards the stairway to the roof.

Nothing he wants more is just revenge. His mind filled with images of killing the bastard in several ways as he walked up the steps. As he walked up the steps he started to pick up pace and soon he was racing up each step. The same anger looks in his eyes as he passes each floor. He passed floor after floor till he managed to make it to the final door at the end. After several slams he broke the door off its hinges but just as quickly fell down at the ground.

He gasp in pain and clutched his chest, he lifted his hand. A large red puddle laid on his hand and more red liquid dripped onto his hand. His commanding officer stood at the edge of the roof facing where protrokalos lay. In one hand a lit cigarette sat between both is index and middle finger while his other hand held onto the trigger of shears anti-tank rifle that he recently borrowed for just for the occasion.

“You could have been a great fighter. A man that brought order to this giant rock.” His commander said. He took a puff from his cigarette before laying the rifle on its side from the railing.

Protrokalos huffed as the bullet went through his chest and out the back. his armor had not enough stopping force against the explosive force shears rifle caliber. He felt as though the every rib on the side it hit was broken. He managed to look up the traitor, his eyes began to show fading around the pupils.

He knew he was dying but he wanted his commanding officer to suffer before he dies.

“So just- just to clarify. Y-y- your- you’re the bastard tha- that caused this. Aren’t you?” he said coughing through bloods filling his mouth.

His commanding officer took another puff and chuckled. “Yes and no.” he walked towards protorkalos. A clump of his hair tangled around the redwoods fingers as he pulled his head till he could see him at eye level.

“You see life is worthless without order, like the mighty lion of the entire African jungle humans must be in controlled by only one man. Not by several people.” He sighed and let go of protrokalos head.

Protrokalos managed to lift himself up as his commander walked to the edge of roof.

“only one should rule, one makes the decisions and all must…. Surrender in order for safety. And if any refuse then sometimes we have shown them what we have to do for our country.”

He growled, drops of blood oozed from his teeth as he grinned his teeth together. “So to preserve you precious order you have to cause a disaster in order to scare them. NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE DIE?”

“YES.” He quickly turns around facing protrokalos. “This world needs to be controlled by only one man. And my master will lead us to a future that best suits us.” he slowly reached out to grabbed the rifle.

Protrokalos watched as his fingers as they travel towards the handle and down to the trigger.

“but for our world to begin one must clean up the mess and ‘trash’ the unwanted” he chuckled one last time before lifting the rifle up, pointed it towards protrokalos, and began firing at him.

Even though he was losing a lot of blood protrokalos managed to regain some of his still beating energy. After dodging the first round with his life he quickly sprinted towards his commander, he drew his blade out shining through the moon light. Commander redwood became blindsided from the blade and missed several shots from his target. Redwood covered his eye from the blindness but instead felt cold steel piercing through his armor, through his heart and out the back. His mouth filled black blood that oozed out of his mouth.

Protrokalos twisted his blade twice through redwoods body, more black blood squirted out and some stained into his katana’s handle and some of his hand. He looked up at his at the bastards face, his anger fueled as a cold cruel smile spread across redwoods face.

“go to hell. You jacka@#” he quickly kicked him off his blade and over the railing. Protrokalos felt drained and slowly sat on the ground, his back leaned against the railing as his vision became blurry from all his surroundings. His senses started to dime off, even the hearing of the body hitting the steps was almost to inaudible. His lungs become harder to breath and he couldn’t move any part of his body. For a few seconds could only hear the last breaths he made as he slowly closed his eyes.

He finally closed his eyes and he was surrounded by the same thing he was clouded by for years.


*present day. Twilight’s library*

Silence hovered the whole room as protrokalos the tragic story he had witness on his last mission. Both me and twilight sat on the chair, tears streamed our faces as to protrokalos loss. Rainbow dash shed a few tears as she sat up and stared at protrokalos eyes. They became watery as to women he lost for his bosses actions for a better world.

Protrokalos sighed and closed his eyes, his tears slide down his cheeks but he stopped from something warm and soft around his body. He looked down at rainbow who was hugging him tightly in a deep embracement. Protrokalos took a few seconds before returning her hug.

I took deep sighed and wiped my tears off my face. Twilight too wiped her tears off and I held her tightly.

“So after that. How did you come to equestria?”

Protrokalos shrugged. “I don’t know. I… I just woke up again but this time… I was in a forest.”

“That’s it you don’t remember how you came here or who brought you here?” twilight said

Protrokalos shooked his head. “Nothing. I just woke with my katana and fully healed and that’s it”

“Where did you stay? Did you actually stay in the everfree forest” rainbow crossed her hooves together.

He nodded. “Yeah I have. been months since I stayed there. I…. I was worried that the residents of this town would consider me an animal. A monster.”

“We never considered you animal or monster.” Twilight smiled.

“Yeah and any pon- I mean anyone who is awesome but not as awesome as me mind you I still would like to enjoy hanging out with. Especially someone who saved me.” rainbow nudged his shoulder erupting a smile on his face.

“That does remind me. How do you know rainbow dash?” I raised an eyebrow at him.

“Every pony knows her. She’s quite famous. I may not left the forest but I still admired her flying. You can say that I… nah it’s. It’s stupid” his face turns a little red around his cheeks

I smiled at the blushing on his cheeks as he diverted his sight away from rainbow. “What? Having a crush on a pony.” I laughed “buddy I’m way ahead of you. I believe rainbow is too” I softly tap twilight back and smiled.

Both protrokalos and rainbow looked at each other and blushed but didn’t turn away from their gaze.

I smiled but remember one final question that needs to be answered. Although I hate breaking moments such as this but the truth is need to fill in the blanks. “I still have one more question for you. How did you get capture and well…. collared.” I said nervously.

Protrokalos smiled shifted to a frown as I asked the question. He sighed and began to answer. “I was spending my time meditating underneath a waterfall one night. When I got back ‘they’ were waiting for me. As usual I fought them. But failed.”

“I woke in a damned cage with a damned collar on my neck. That was three weeks ago. Which leads to my question? Why did you spare me?” he said in a serious tone.

I opened my mouth for a few seconds but shut it tight as the sound of an explosion saved me. We all took attention and ran outside as a second explosion echoed outside. Rainbow and twilight both got off our laps and race to towards the door, protrokalos grabbed his weapon and I grabbed my M16 that I fixed up a week ago and ran alongside twilight and rainbow. As we ran outside the sound of metal against metal echoed through the night.

The sound grew closer from the buildings, both protrokalos and me ready our weapons as the sound stopped and the earth shooked in front of us. we all stood their silent as we stared at large machine stood in front of us. Its large metallic closes opened and closed as it displayed itself to us.

I felt a little shaken at how large it was and I started to have trouble keeping my sights onto my target as I pointed at it.

Protrokalos looked at it but didn’t show any fear. He held his blade with his left and ready himself as it approach them. He looked over and shooked his head. “Scared American”

I looked over and shooked my head. “heh heh uh no. no I’m not” I said a little shaken in my tone.

He chuckled and drew his blade out of his shaft. “Just keep telling yourself that American. If you let your fear control you. You can’t save others.”

I uncocked my weapon and took a deep breath. “I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my friends and the ponies of poniville.”

He chuckled. “That’s the spirit. Now let’s send those f@#kers a message that we aren’t to be f@#k with”
