Chapter 14 part 3
I couldn't believe it. I was starring into the eyes of the person who was going to end my life and the next…
Macaulay, Cora, Abigail and I where standing across the room from the clones who where about to rip us apart. The shadowy one, number 56, protested but when 60, who seems like their unofficial leader, set his eyes on mine I knew he was out for blood. I was frozen with fear, for myself and my friends. Just then Bobby and the others bust in through the back door with a small hand full of the X Men. Cyclops, Rogue and Wolverine ends up getting attacked by the feral number 54 while Iceman, Vibe, Spectre, Outburst and Moonstar were faced with 57, a woman with teleportation and portal abilities. Storm and a few students take on number 58, an energy manipulating man with an afro and sunglasses. number 55 is a super speed user who goes after Beast, Gambit and a few of Gambit's students. The shapeshifter just watches on silently. 59 is a girl, about 16 years old, with psychic abilities and she ends up fighting Emma, Magma and Emma's entire team but they are all held back with nothing more than a blink from their opponent. That leaves only one more clone.
Andy jumps out in front of me before 60 rams his head into my gut. The force of the hit sends us all through the wall behind us and out into the next corridor. "Hey, Andy." 60 says as he brushes the rubble from his head. "You're one of the guys who's DNA is inside of me." This guy has flying, super strength and endurance as well as speed. He's like a way more powerful Andy. "Let me take him." I tell Andy but he scoffs at me and faces the enemy. "I hear the whole thing from a surveillance room. These guy's are supposed to be some ultimate mutants, tch. 60 is the highest number which means you're the best, right? I called in the cavalry for your friends but you are mine, because there is only room for one person to be considered the ultimate mutant and that's me." He flies in at dive bomb speed but the clone puts his palm to Andy's head and yawns. "Look kid, I got you in my cell structure, as well as some of the greatest mutant badA$$es in the world, so what makes you think you can" Andy spins in the air and makes a straight kick to the face. "What was that?" He asks. "I couldn't hear you through the foot in your mouth." I use my psychic powers to pull him away before 60 regains himself. "Looks like your buddy has to learn some manures." 60 sneers before disappearing in a blur and reappearing in front of us. I blast Andy with an energy bast since 60's too fast for me to think of anything else. "I really should wear a sign." 60 stands back up. "It aint a good idea to touch me." I send a cold blast at him, wishing for it to freeze him and save our lives but he breaks through. He hears Impact coming in for another attack and goes to punch through his stomach but I jump in the way and knock Impact back with a psi blast. The hand reaches inside of my chest and grabs onto my heart.
I feel 60's hand crushing my heart. Only staying barely alive with my healing ability I endure the pain as best I can. "What is it about real people that makes me so repulsed? It's anyone actually. Why is it that when you touch me I feel such hatred that I feel you must die? Do you know the answer?" "You're a narcissist." I tell him. "Really?" He asks me with interest. "Is it narcissism to believe one is greater than another when that is the fact? I am greater than your friend because I have his powers and abilities as well as others." "You may have his DNA, but you are not even close to Impact's level." I fire a blast of cool air, freezing his mid section and making him let go of me. I form a reinforced ice sword and it snaps on the enemies skin. I blast him with energy but that only melts my ice. I have to go all out. I throw both of my hand in the air and collect all of the energy I can find into my one arm. I thrust the arm forward, releasing the energy in a stream. 60 opens his arms as if to receive the energy as it engulfs him. He walks out from the steam left behind, completely unfazed. "Oh S#!+."
The only thing I can think of now is to try fighting without using my body, so I create a few ice giants and try having 60 fight them. He rips off the arm of the first one and beats the second one down with it. When the third one attacks him he makes a snowball and tosses it like a rocket, obliterating the snowman. I create armour just in time to avoid getting killed by his next punch but he makes his way through my shield and stabs me in the chest again with an open fist. "That healing ability wont last much longer, will it?" He asks me, stabbing again and again. I drop my useless armour and fall to my knees. "F%(&." I curse into the snow falling from the roof, my snowmen blasted open. The snow has covered the fighting area. "Looks like you're already out of energy." He crushes my hand and I bleed onto the snow. "I don't have anymore energy left." I say, after he stomps my face into the ground. "But that doesn't matter." 60 bends down to hear me better. "Why's that?" He asks me. "Because this is the arctic, dumb A$$." The snow starts to spin in a circle around us as some of it covers my broken hand, melting into it and regenerating it for me. "And I can take my power from the snow!" I disappear into the flurry of snowflakes. 60 thrashes at the snow but I'm nowhere to be found. "I can become any of the three forms of water." I tell him as I reform from behind and attack with ice blasts. "And they can fuel me. As long as there's snow, ice or water I will never run dry." I blast him with cold again and again. "That so?" He asks before jumping into the air and breathing in deeply. He lets his breath out with such a huge for ice that it blows all the snow away and I am forced to reform. "Awe, F%(& baskets." I get an uppercut to the face and am knocked into the wall behind me. 60 comes in for the kill but Impact flies down to help me. "Skylar!" He gets caught by 60 who grabs him by the hair, punches him in the stomach and holds him in place at his knees in front of him. "I can kill you so easily." He tells me, holding up one finger. "But I want you to enjoy your friends deaths first." He places the finger on Andy's temple and begins to push in. "Now watch, nice and slow."
I hear Andy scream in pain but my body wont move. I'm too tired from that last stunt. "I wont give up!" I hear him call out. "I wont die, you B@$+@)D!" I wish I was like that sometimes. I wish I didn't know death was holding out his hand and ready to take us all away. I know he's going to kill Andy. Then he'll probably make me watch him kill Cora and Macaulay and Alena…Abigail…Logan and mr.Summers. D@^^*IT! I can't do anything about it. I raise my head and see what he's doing to Andy. He has his fingers digging in slowly to both temples and Andy is pulling his arms away with everything he has left. He's crying. He knows he can't win. This guy is indestructible. He has an invincible body and unlimited strength. How many people do the X men alone have with super strength? Colossus, Strong guy, the Juggernaught…I guess he doesn't count. Either way we're screwed. We're all gonna die. That's when I decided. We don't all have to die.
I stand up, starting what I know will be the death of me. I turn on my psychic powers. I can feel the calories being drained with every second, but that's okay. I don't plan on coming back from this. My whole body becomes engulfed in energy as my mind takes control of the limbs, my muscles can't force to move. "Let him go 60." I demand. "We're not finished." 60 drops Impact on the ground. He's still breathing so I was in time. But time is what I'm running low on. "Ready for round two." "Let's hurry it up!" I charge at him with psychic powered speed, colliding with him so hard the ground beneath us cracks. Knowing I can't break his invincible skin I toss him into the air, so he wont be able to hurt Andy and I unleash my psychic energy into his mind. "What are you doing!?" He screams out in pain. "I've never felt this! What is it!?" "That's called pain." I tell him. "You never felt it because you're invincible. But through psychic powers I can reach into your mind and kick you mental A$$!" I dig into his brain as hard as I can until finally he falls to the ground. "Had enough, mr.Pefect?" I ask him. "We have plenty more psychics on the X men and I'm just a beginner. If you come after us or cause trouble we will take you down."
The X Men soon find out there is no way of beating all of these clones at once. Cyclops tries to issue a tactical retreat but 57 blocks his path by making the walls of the room portals back inside. "We wouldn't want you leaving now. 56 grabs her arm and shakes his head. "Why are we doing this?" "Because it's fun." 57 snaps back at him. "But there's no point." 56 tries to convince her. "We have our freedom, so let's go enjoy it instead of fighting here." "I am enjoying it." 57 pulls away but 56 stretches his arm out and catches her. "Please. I want to go." "Alright." 57 finally agrees and opens a few portals which the other clones retreat into. The battle is over.
57 teleports all of the clones to where 60 and I have fought. "What happened to you!" 57 runs out to his side. "Don't touch!" He slaps her away before she could touch him. "I want to kick his A$$." "No time." 56 warns him. "The others are coming after us. We need to retreat before we are sucked into another worthless fight." With that they disappear and I loose what little consciousness I have left. My heart rate slows and my breathing soon stops. I think I'm ready for a long rest.
