    Kane's body froze as time seemed to slow down. He couldn't dodge the shot, even if he could have, he couldn't move. Suddenly he was on the ground. He'd been tackled down to the ground just as the shot would have taken him out. The cavalry was here. Two other operatives, one being the guy he'd caught earlier, had made their way up to aid Kane against this beast of a vamp he was fighting.

    After Kane and the guy from earlier saved the other guy he shouted, "WTF is this? Save each other day?" "We living folk got to stay together!" Kane responded Dashing for the vamp. The vampire prepaired for a devastating swing that could have split Kane in two. He didn't count on Kane's martial arts history though. Kane threw a devastating kick tha knocked the vamp nto his back. That amount of force was impossible for a normal human to muster, but Kane was a totem, and his frog side really amped up his legs.

    The minor victory was short lived however, as the vampire kicked up back to his feet, right into a hail of bullets. Kane had jumper back to Jeff and Vincent and they'd all opened fire on the brute. It was clear no one human could best him. Kane, Jeff, and Vincent would have to act as a very skilled unit if they were going to bring him down; or at least keep him busy so the rest of the undead could be taken out.

    Xander was mad. Very mad. His axe went up cutting the head off Kane. Xander smiled. One down-.

    Damn. It wasn't Kane, it was some other random operative. He then got a shot in the head from the REAL Kane who was to the side of him. Xander dove at Kane, axe ready to stab, cut, slash, or whatever deadly attack he had to use. But out of the crowd of people, Vincent, knife at the ready ran at full force into Xander knife cutting deeply into Xanders chest. Then Jeff raised a few more rounds at Xanders neck.

    He was failing. He had to shape up or be slain. In an upward claw motion, he had knocked Vincent on hte ground and dove on top of him, cutting his axe into his body. But Vincent was far from helpless.

    Knife still in hand, he pushed the beast off of him and onto the ground he was then aobut to dive on him with his knife when he got up and kicked Vincent right in the jaw knocking 2 or 3 teeth out.

    Vincent watched as his nice shiny teeth flew out. Blood rushed down his throught, but all he could do was continue to fight.

    Xander was just getting faster with each swing of his axe. Or was he just getting slower? Vincent was not able to dodge any more. He was falling behind. But Kane and Jeff had his back. THey rushed at Xander with their weapons ready putting bullets in all the right spots.

    Finally Xander fell onto his knees again. They all had weapons aimed at his heart, but suddenly a sea of zombies and werewolves jumped in his place and now they were forced to fight the minions at least until Xander was battle ready again.

    But Vincent liked this better. They were winning. They felled zombie after zombie.

    Xander fell in the ground. It was over. The humans had won. Or had they? Zombies jumped in front of him, taking the shots, while werewolves sneaked around and attacked. Thank the demons. And his luck was getting better. As he fell he felt his health getting better.

    Soon he felt like he had never fought. He looked behind him to see a Vampire. One of the healers of army. YES!

    Shoving the minions aside he got to the front lines and got ready to fight again. If was his turn to shine. THis was all him.

    But just as before he was pushed back by a reign of bullets. But this time it was from a machine. A jeep mounted machine gun. They were moving foward. And along with them came special opps. Buskas and grenades. Machine guns and tanks. It was horrible. Now even he Knew they couldn't win.

    He knew it was right this time as they retreated once again. But he wasn't with them. He continued to fight. Ripping up tanks. He was going to die today. Not of cowardess. BUt of courage. Maybe some would stay to fight with him. Maybe not. As if he cared.

    But they did stay. Most of them. Only the cowards ran.

    And the ones that did stay. Sure they were hammered but they were there. ANd they were better than ever. THey had a new hope. yep they sure as hell did. THey dug deep and knocked over tanks and vans, and everything else. THey were winning.

    Now the words retreat came off the lips of the Spade operatives.

    They had won the day.

    Jeff, Kane, and Vincent, along with all of the others ran back, near to the bay, that was were they would wait until the first light, then attack the abyss demons. But Jeff had a different feeling. Thats why at midnight, when the villians attacked, he was ready. Yells and screams were heard as men awoken, and men died. Jeff felled 2 zombies before Vincent even awoke.

    WTF! Vincent yelled grabbing his guns.

    Kane was also up very quickly, it wasn't long before he was killing witchs and werewolves too.

    No! Jeff thought as a powerful witch knocked him back, with a forceful spell. Not another enemy it would take all 3 of them to even stay alive. But the witch wasn't that tough. Soon Kane had felled it with a shot to its head. Well, 6 shots to the head.

    They all kept their eye out for that one vampire which had nearly killed them all. But suprisingly they never saw it during that fight.

    But what did almost kill Jeff was a pack of werewolves, all of them super powerful and visious.

    Hmmmmm…. Stragg gave her the answer she wanted. He said he would take technology into his new empire instead of destroy it… Then why did Xan have a sinking feeling that she was still going to get the rotten end of the stick? Would he betray her? Heh. Of course he would. If living in New York taught Xan anything, it was not to trust anyone… Act trusting, sure…but actually trust?.... And Stragg is probably a hundred percent the evil stereotype he portrays as well. Oh well. Xan knew she had made up her mind and for now, she had to walk the path she has chosen.

    As Xan, Dante, and Red made their way back to Lenin, they hit another snag: wolves… and lots of them! Amongst them were members of SPADE and Inquisition that were away… not surprising… there was only 47 people in the entire base, and most of those were pencil pushers. The real fighters were shipped long ago…. Obviously, some of them heard about what Xan and the others were doing and hurried home. A small battle broke out and Xan pulled her spells together as she let out a torrent of lightening. After dodging bullets and a couple special attacks by some Witch Hunters, Xan heard someone shouting that “The witch was wanted alive.” Really? Did someone recognize her from all the way over here? It seemed to be the case… and with that, Xan had an idea.

    “Dante!! Red!! Go on! I’ll hold ‘em off and catch up with you later!”

    “What?!” One of them shouted, probably Dante.

    Xan gave a smirk and tapped the side of her nose: “In this time we have a saying: Know thine enemy. I’m simply going to find out a bit more for our lord.” Dante didn’t seem to like the idea, but went along anyway… Xan liked Dante. He was serious, but he seemed to have honor, and respect at least… It was more difficult to say what Red was going to do.

    After fighting solo for a good while, Xan was finally defeated by the horde. And, luckily for her, she did hear correctly on the “wanted alive” part…. And was only knocked unconscious…..

    Ugh…… bad idea… “Wanted alive” didn’t mean “unharmed”. Xan woke up to a dull throbbing pain in her whole body. She was in a large room; the floor underneath her was glowing… it was a circle. No, it was HER circle! The plasma screen circle! She was being held by her on gadget??!? Oh… they were going to pay…

    “Finally you’re awake.” Said a man with an accent…. A French accent??? Xan looked up into who she guessed is the head of the France base of SPADE.

    “What the…”

    “Ah, ah, mon cher. You are not in a position to make questions. The only reason you are alive is because of your amazing talent for making weapons which specialize in magic and anti-magic.”

    “Good enough for you guys to raid my home and kill my dogs.” Xan said bitterly. She understood the pain now.. This was a capture/torture/execution circle specifically made for witches. The spell was on a low setting, but she had a feeling it wouldn’t be there for long.

    “Yes, and as you see, many of your inventions have been already been mass produced and are in use. Yet, some of your greater inventions elude our best technicians. You have put on many safeties so not just anyone could use them, no? You will show us how all of your little toys work and make more for our use, or…” He pulled a little palm computer/controller for the circle and pressed a button. “You’ll pay with your life for what you did to our comrades in Spain.”

    Xan gritted her teeth as the dull pain became like a spark shooting through her entire body… It was amazing she could stand up. “How… Do I… know you won’t…. kill me after I spill my secrets?”

    The head just gave a dark smirk and pressed another button, increasing the level of pain. “You don’t.” Xan let out a shout as another torrent of magic ripped through her body.

    F*** this. Xan wouldn’t take anymore. “Yeah… I have put a lot of safe guards on my stuff… even hidden in the blue prints if anything was copied… You really think you could turn my ring against me?” Xan closed her eyes as she thought of the safety words… “One ring to rule them all… One ring to find them….” The French SPADEr understood what as happening and quickly pressed a few buttons to increase the pain threshold close to point of death…. Xan fell to the ground, gritting in the amazing amount of pain, tasting her own blood in her mouth (Wow, this really is a top quality circle.) But her will was not so easily broken. “One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness...” Xan slowly lifted her fist, still looking directly into the eyes of her captor, and lifted her middle finger. “Bind them!” With a bang and a huge puff of smoke, the circle crumpled underneath Xan and the spell was broken.

    Thanks to the black smoke, no one could aim their guns yet. With a few words, Xan magically called to her broom and wand and they were in her hand. She used what strength she had left to blow a hole through the ceiling and break through a window of the floor above. Ugh… she was exhausted… and… In the middle of Paris? No. In the middle of a war zone!! As it was, all of Paris was burning. But, Xan could tell this wasn’t Stragg’s doing. The entire place was dominated by demons… lots and lots of demons. Didn’t Lenin say the biggest threat to him was a demon? Was this disaster this other demon’s doing?? Well, if he was a threat to the Vampire Lord, Lenin wouldn’t have any objection in Xan fighting these creatures…. Finally, something she can fight without worry.

    As Xan called forth a few healing spells to save her charred a$$, she found a power transformer and, using her wand as an adapter, changed electrical power into spiritual energy. Now that she was in tip-top condition again, she went to where the front line seemed to be: Notre Dam. Gah.. They were all SPADE and Inquisition members!!! Well…. right now they had a common enemy. Xan would go back to loathing them later.

    Xan told one of the English-speaking fighters that she was enlisted by SPADE like so many other supernatural beings (specially the wolves), and that she was there to fight. Due to the fact they desperately needed backup, no one complained as Xan let out a wave of spells on their enemy. Now… It’s time stop holding back and bring out the big magic.

    Suddenly a red cloud apperaed in the sky, and then everyone died of mad cow disease.
