Chapter 2 – Xtreme Squad 3

A few hours had past and Hayden Norman and Anya Wellington was at the Government Square. Charles Thompson sat in his seat at his desk looking through the report papers that Hayden quickly make up for him. He looked tired and slow as he made his way looking at the finer details.

“Have you thought of taking a break from all of this. You know I used that to my friend Daniel many times,” Hayden suggested to him.

“There’s no one else here to do this and my old own friend would want me to help his son and daughter in their time of need,” Charles replied quietly.

Lucas and the Xtreme Squad came inside the room and Hayden turned around and shook his hand, “It’s great to meet you guys in somewhat better times than the war. Your sister will now be at the area where the people are trying to resurrect Censilo. We have half a day to go before the resurrection will be complete,”

Yuri and Kuzuki picked up the papers and started reading them in detail, “Are these people ex-followers of Censilo?” she asked Hayden.

It’s mostly likely yes that they used to follow him. You have to understand that this city has lost direction after the war. Some will believe Censilo might be able to rebuild the city himself and bring order to the place. Yes, the public would be under his heavy rule but he would be keep them alive for his control. It’s this or destruction as they see it. What we need to do is to change their minds with a message,” Hayden explained to Kuzuki.

Charles rubbed his head and leaned back in his seat, “We can send some troops with the Xtreme Squad to get back Chisoutsa. There’s only a few of these people and their magic skills might be strong but we can handle this issue well enough.”

“I agree and we can make the move when you are ready Charles. We have everything settled from our end,” Lucas replied ready for action.

Hayden looked at Anya for a moment and turned to Lucas and Charles, “I have another idea and one you are not to like. I suggest that they resurrect Censilo. It’s the only way.”

Lucas and Charles mouth’s dropped in shock over Hayden’s thoughts, “Are you insane? Are you fucking insane? This was a demon lord who destroyed this city before and tried to kill us all. What are you talking about and why are you here? We could have done this ourselves. We shouldn’t just take in help from other universes and people when we feel like it,” Lucas shouted out.

“I don’t get anything what you’re talking about man,” Jasper replied confused.

Anya came in-between Lucas and Hayden and tried to prevent a fight between them, “Just listen to Hayden, he’s trying to help you all,” she cried.

“Chisoutsa has the DNA of Censilo and she’s demon right? Her body has changed to a demon for good now which means she will start the process of not just being a demon but thinking like Censilo. Those DNA lab work that they did on her was to create the ultimate fighting machine like Censilo. He was upset that she took longer than expected and wanted an instant success. He will get his wish very soon if we stop the resurrection magic. You will end up fighting your own sister and having to destroy her and you will have no family. Do you want that?” Hayden explained calmly to Lucas.

Lucas gave a dirty look towards him and looked at Anya, “No I don’t. So she will become a demon lord herself are you saying?”

“Yes she will. She has the DNA of a demon lord in her and that will take over her. Her demon form is here and so will that personality too. You did notice how much trouble she had controlling herself during and after the war?”

“I noticed it at times,” Charles replied thinking back to the war days.

“What will happen to her if we let this happen to Chisoutsa?” Yuki asked.

“The DNA and whole of it will needed to be removed from her to resurrect Censilo. She will actually become a normal human being but will be able to control her demon form completely and will no evil intent. She could lead a life just a human and age normally. It would something that she always wanted and so was her father’s wish. The problem will be dealing with Censilo’s resurrection and to deal with that mess,” Hayden answered her.

Charles leaned back up from his seat and tapped his fingers on the desk, “We don’t have resources to fight him and this would lead into another war. On the other hand down the track dealing with a full powered evil Chisoutsa would require other worlds to help us out like the Author’s War ended up being. We are doomed now or soon.”

“Not completely and here comes the kicker. Censilo’s power won’t be at full strength. I remembered the Librarian chap who showed me the history of demons in some detail talked to me that it took Censilo sometime between the periods of old days of ruling the lands, creating Chisoutsa and then returning to the City of Demons to begin his battles with Chisoutsa herself. Lucas, with the teachings of magic by Frithdar the wizard, who I was told was a powerful one you should be able to take him down with the help of your squad members. It will be a very hard task but it can be done,” Hayden explained.

Lucas paused for a moment and he knew what had to be done wasn’t going to please the City of Demons but it was the right way to go around it.

“I don’t want to fight Chisoutsa in the end. We have to let the resurrection happen and then we can finally have peace in this world for good. This will be our final fight for the Xtreme Squad. One last stand, one last time.”

“Do you wish to come along and help?” Lucas asked Hayden and Hew.

“I’m not sure if I’ll be helpful at all but I can try,” Hew said in a cheerful manner.

“I can come to see what other magic they could be using thou it’s not the usual things I see in my own world,” Hayden answered.

“Let’s make our move now,” Lucas told the squad.

The Xtreme Squad with their visitors make their journey into the City of Demons travelling across the broken roads that once was fine before the war. Jasper and Yuri noticed people watching them and keeping their heads down. Lucas turned to Hayden thinking, “Do they really believe that everything is lost now?”

“I think they do feel like that. The past many years much of the thoughts of the government and your family has been on defending the city. There’s been very little in terms of what is best for the people of the city. There has to be a major change. What are going to do with yourself if you win and there is nothing left to do for you?” Hayden asked.

“I don’t know, I don’t expect to get out of this alive,” Lucas replied.

The jeep came to a stop down near the half destroyed building where the ritual people were.. The squad came out with Hayden, Anya, and Hew and slowly made their made to the top of the area where the people was standing. Chisoutsa was found in the middle of them on the floor asleep.

“Is she ok on the floor there?” Jasper asked Hayden wondering about the picture at hand.

“It is part of the resurrection spell Jasper so she must be alive and well for this to happen. I think they just noticed us,”

The head figure came out of the shadows and looked at Lucas and nodded at him, “My name is Recon, we are the people who are resurrecting the true demon lord of the world Censilo. Your sister will be fine after this but I must warn you not to attack our leader when he is reborn. Your family has caused much damage to our world over the years. You all brought the war to us and it came from his world,” the man known as Recon pointing at Hayden.

“This person here Hayden, it’s not his fault. It was a war is that was going to come here if we liked it or not. Censilo doesn’t care about anyone but himself,” Lucas tried to explain to him.

“It is too late now to stop this and here he comes!” Recon cried as the shadow of Censilo appeared over Chisoutsa’s body on the ground. He glowed a light blue colour as Lucas and the squad pulled back. Lucas moved his blue magical club staff ready in position.

Jasper fired the first shot at Censilo and it went straight through him as Censilo grinned at him, “I never thought I would leave the Second Life world, where Chisoutsa killed me but now I’m starting feel much better,” he boomed.

Yuri and Kuzuki gave chase after Recon and his followers. Jasper pushed back and stood next to Lucas, “What the hell was that. I couldn’t get a hit on him?”

“I don’t know, he’s affected by any guns or knives by the look of it,” Lucas said.

Hew floated quickly next to Lucas and pointed at Censilo, “He’s not at full form yet Lucas so he remains a ghost like me. Only magic would be able to put him down. It is part of the resurrection spell and what Hayden said about him having to wait to recharge his powers.”

Lucas looked at Censilo beginning to understand the massive task at hand, “This is going to get ugly.”
