Saturday Super Stories - The Event 4 B

"I have pulled from The Knowledge tales from the Event that ravaged two universes.  I start at the beginning and will tell the important parts, and while there are many stories to be told, this will be quick."  Chief Archivist of the Catalogers.

“Many things have been culled from this universe, many lives lost, some heroically, some fruitlessly, but everything and everyone met has had an impact.  Some people and places are the same regardless of the world on which it lay, it spreads like an infection.”

“A smart man once said ‘There is more than one of everything.”

The Event 4 - Dopplegang’land B “Jack Rabbit Versus Blrrr”

In the farthest reaches of Antarctica the Adventurers of the Undiscovered were exploring a fault line crack that burrowed deep into the crust beneath the glacier surface.  Barnabus adjusted the harness and released a bit more of the tension on the line lowering Warren further into the crevice. 

“Do you hear a buzzing sound Barney?”  Jeremy asked.  Barnabus Alexander also known as Jack Rabbit of the WMD looked up at him and began to speak as Jeremy vanished in a spray of blood and death.  A streak of red blurred fast and it was only his accelerated vision and brain power that allowed him to keep track of it at all.

The red began to slow down and stopped at the other edge of the crevice, the red it seemed was only what was left of his cousin and the man’s suit was in fact silver and white.  “I wouldn’t do that if I were you chief.  Bad shit lies beneath the arctic sheath.”

“I, who…what did you…”  Barnabus couldn’t find the words to express himself in that moment.

“The names Blrrr, your universe invaded mine and my team and I were sent here to negotiate your surrender.  But I’m going to go ahead and kill as many of your people as I can before I get pulled back to my universe.  Also I really mean it, you should stop what you are doing, gonna get that guy killed and release one of the universes most horrible things like ever on the universe.”

Confusion racked Barnabus’ brain and he still couldn’t get everything to work, he already felt himself releasing the harness and the line begin to slide away from him as his body began to move into its speed zone.

“Thing you are exploring down there is called Horizon, super evil she-bitch time traveler.  Real name is Josephine or so she told us when I released her on my world.  Us hyper-kinetics always seem to be science guys, and we always have a group, be it challengers, adventurers, or explorers, doesn’t matter the universe we always come here and release this abomination against reality.  My group is also called Horizon, we named ourselves after the thing we united against and killed to save the universe.”

“WHAT ARE YOU?!” Jasmine screamed.

“I am he and he is me.”  Then Blrrr was gone and time reverted to normal speed and Barnabus realized that the fight hadn’t even started and it was over and he had lost, blood poured from the holes punched in his sternum and then he heard Warren slam into the ice below.

Jasmine ran to him and tried to call the WMD and warn them but it was already too late, the end had come and they were to slow.
