Iron Heights Penitentiary, three miles north of Keystone City, August, 2010
Ravan stood in the showers, listening to a terrible crime. Three members of the Aryan Brigade were raping a member of the Los Negra Tarantulos in the shower cubicle in the far corner.
“Mind yur business darkie,” warned the lookout for the other three “Or you’re next!”
Ravan lathered his feet up with soap “What I find amusing is that for all your purity of race talk, you…animals, are violating a black man to prove that you’re better? Ha ha ha you’re not only contradictory, but self hating homosexuals!”
The lookout drew out a sharpened toothbrush and waved it menacingly “What’d you call me?”
Ravan looked around and angled the shower head onto the floor “I called you an animal and a self hating homosexual!” With that he slid across the slippery tiled floor, grabbed the man’s arm and forced the shiv up through the soft underside of his jaw in a lightning quick strike. The man coughed and convulsed, Ravan caught him and snapped his neck in a deft strike “I apologise for this gift Kali, it is not worthy” Ravan placed the body gently in a heap on the floor near the shower, the man’s blood washing away down the drain and headed towards the incident.
“What’d you want choco?” sneered the rapist as his two buddies held the man down.
Ravan shook his head in disgust “To delay the Kali Yuga,” he said as he waved the bloody toothbrush at them “And to have a shower in peace”
Ravan left the shower block wrapped in a towel and tapped the glass of the security booth. The overweight guard looked up from his crossword puzzle with a scowl “What?”
“The toilets blocked” said Ravan as he walked off drying his hair.
Iron Heights Penitentiary, September, 2010
Ravan leant on the fence with Brown Snake watching the yard.
“Ssssssooo are you ready?”
“I was ready last month,” said Ravan “But you went and got yourself a month in solitary confinement”
“That wasssssn’t my fault” hissed Brown Snake “Damn Mexicanssssss”
“So how does this work?” asked Ravan
“Do you accept Kobra?” asked Brown Snake “Are you willing to kill and die for Lord Naga-Naga?”
Ravan exhaled quietly through his teeth, he curled his toes “Yes”
Brown Snake smiled and moved towards Ravan, who flinched and went into a fighting stance “Whoa!” said Brown Snake “It’ssssss jusssst a hug”
Ravan eyed Brown Snake carefully before embracing him. He could kill him and no one would even know…
“You’re now a Lancssssehead” said Brown Snake popping a cigarette into his mouth “You anssssswer to me”
“And who do answer to?”
Brown Snake smiled “Blackadder. He’sssss in ssssssolitary now. That’ssss where we get time to plan and recssssieve ordersssss from the Nagasssssss” He lit up and blew a cloud into the air “Now, we what ssssshall I call you”
“How many do we have in here?”
“Sssssso many questions little hatchling” sneered Brown Snake “Sssseee you at dinner”
As Brown Snake walked off across the yard, Ravan noticed members of the Aryan Brigade and Los Negra Tarantulos looking at him. It seemed everyone was looking at him. Even though they hated each other, it seemed ALL prison gangs were united in their hatred of Kobra. Even the Dark Fairy gang made up of paedophiles and child molesters looked at him in disgust. But he noticed amongst the sea of judging eyes several nods of approval; at least fifteen slight nods of approval, subtle and widespread, even a guard. A quiet nod of welcoming into the order.
“For the greater good O Kali” muttered Ravan as headed off towards his cell noting the weight of stares on him.
Iron Heights Penitentiary, November, 2010
Ravan sat in the prison mess hall at a table. He gripped a fork tightly in his hand, pushing down the urge to end them; hell, to kill everyone in this Kali forsaken pit of misery!
“Blackadder hassss ssssent word” Brown Snake said quietly “Your name issss Python”
Ravan shrugged “Was that the first snake he thought of?”
“Don’t you like it?”
“When do I get to meet him?” said Ravan pushing his tray away
“Paissssshence” hissed Brown Snake
Ravan smashed the fork into the table “I grow tired of this! He got up and headed over to a table of the Aryan Brigade and sat down at the end. The whole mess hall collectively gasped. Ravan stuck his hand into a mound of mashed potato on the nearest Brigade members tray “I am going to kill you all” he whispered as all hell broke loose.
Ravan sat shackled in solitary, his left eye swollen, his nose bloodied, several scratches on his neck and arms. He looked at the graze on the back of his hand; they may be unskilled but their sheer numbers combined with the frenetic energy of a mass brawl meant even one of Ravan’s level of skill was going to cop a few hits. The eye slot on the door slid open, flooding the room with light causing Ravan to squint.
“Your talents are wasted in here” said a deep muffled voice
“So have you come to let me out” asked Ravan
“No Python,” chuckled the voice “That’s up to you. There’s a cell in the capital. If you can find it of course” The slit closed
Iron Heights Penitentiary, 15 th December, 2010
Ravan emerged from solitary and headed for the yard. He spotted his target and made a beeline straight for him. Mammoth caught a glimpse in his peripheral vision as he spotted Ravan coming at him.
“What do you want?” said Mammoth angrily; he still wore an eye patch from their incident at the beginning of the year
“You are going to get me out of here” said Ravan
“What are you talking about, you psycho!?”
“You’ll soon see,” Ravan made a fist “But I need you at full power” He lashed out and smashed his hand into the power dampener around Mammoth’s neck, shorting it out. “You are going to throw me over the wall or I will take both your eyes!”
Mammoth gulped as the sirens blared around him and the guards headed towards them. He looked at the seriousness etched on Ravan’s face “Happy landings freak” Mammoth grabbed Ravan by the collar and threw him like a javelin, up and out of the prison. The complex went nuts as Ravan sailed through the air at tremendous speed.
Lex Freight Swimming Centre, Avon, Ohio
Ravan smashed through the glass roof and hit the water like a bomb. The two patrons screamed and ran for help as Ravan clambered out of the pool.
“O Kali is merciful” he coughed “That could’ve been a lot worse” A stood dripping on the pool edge as the lifeguard approached him.
“Are you okay mister?” squeaked the young man with more muscles than brains
“I am fine,” said Ravan “I have come to your planet from beyond the stars” Ravan smirked as the young man’s jaw dropped “I need your vehicle so I can warn your leader of the coming of Kali Yuga”
The lifeguard stood in stunned silence and reached into his pocket, withdrew his keys. Ravan plucked them from his grasp “You will be rewarded” He punched the man with a nerve strike, rendering him unconscious.
Washington DC, 20 th December 2010
Ravan had been on the run from the law for a week. He was distinctive with his father’s skin tone and his mother’s beauty; but a week of poor hygiene, slow driving, a Lex Freight Swimming Centre jumper and the fact it was snowing made it easier for him to blend into the city. He dumped the car in a shopping centre car park and proceeded on foot around the nation’s capital. It was pretty, but he wasn’t here to sightsee. Ravan rubbed his hands together and looked around, his eye catching a small piece of graffiti. It was two green triangles. After many months in prison Ravan was switched onto symbols about which part of the yard belonged to which group, plus the cryptic clue from Blackadder. Triangles for fangs, green for snakes. Ravan looked down the street to see the J Edgar Hoover building and he chuckled to himself; Kobra was hiding in plain sight across the street from the authorities.
Washington DC, early hours of 21 December, 2010
Ravan crouched on the roof looking in through the skylight. It was cold but he pushed the pain away in his mind, sitting still in position as he waited for his quarry. He contemplated just walking in through the front door, but though he was in with Kobra, they weren’t just going to open up. One did not just walk up to a terrorist camp and announce th…
Ravan snapped out of his daydream as the sound of fighting erupted below him. He brushed the snow away to get a clearer look when he spotted her.
“O Kali” he whispered.
Below him a stunning Asian woman glided across the room. The Kobra cell were attacking her and she moved through them like a scythe through wheat. Each hit was devastating, each one dead before they hit the floor. Ravan was mesmerised by her skill, grace and deadliness.
“Oh goddess, you have come to earth” said Ravan as he watched in awe as she ripped through them without so much as breathing heavy. It almost seemed like a waste of her time even though she was grossly outnumbered. Soon it was just her, a room full of bodies and the final Kobra agent who was whimpering on his knees, arms raised in surrender.
“You must have annoyed the wrong person to have ME come all this way” she stated
“P-please Lady Shiva,” begged the man “I’ll tell you everything! The other cell in Metropoli…”
She slammed her foot into his sternum, the crack echoing across the room as the blow broke all his ribs and stopped his heart “You are not worthy to speak my name”
“Shiva” whispered Ravan, the words danced on his lips as he withdrew into the night. A chill ran up Shiva’s spine as she glanced up to the skylight, a distinct feeling she was being watched.
Metropolis Train Station, 23 rd December, 2010
Ravan looked up from his sketch pad at the city of Metropolis, the city of steel and glass. He stared intently at his sketch of Shiva, it was good but it wasn’t her, it didn’t capture her true beauty.
He disembarked and wandered around the city. Here he would make a name for himself. Here he would delay the Kali Yuga.
Here he would make Shiva love him…
