The turtles chased after the metal Titan as it charged down the hall after Celeste. There wasn’t enough room to maneuver in such a narrow area but they had to at least try to keep it from ripping her apart.
“While it had the Kryst in its hands we need to be careful!” Donnie shouted.
“Give us the low down on this thing, what the hell is it made of?!” Leo shouted back.
“That’s what I’m trying to figure out! It seems like some sort of Titanium alloy but some of its makeup I can’t understand! I think they must of found a way to fuse Dimension X metals with ours here on earth! It’s not something I have seen before!”
“Hit it with everything we’ve got and hope for the best then!” Raph said and jumped ahead of the group. He landed on the back of the titan and tried to break the glass dome that housed its master but his sais couldn’t breach the material. With each strike they deflected not even leaving a scratch.
Leo followed suit and latched onto the left arm of the being, trying to stab his katana in the shoulder joints but only finding that his weapon too was unable to do any damage.
Mikey caught the giant’s foot with his nunchucks in a attempt to trip it but the strength of the trabadour was too great and he was dragged along the ground like a sack of potatoes. “Donnie do something!!!!!” He screamed.
“Don’t worry about trying to hurt it just get the box!” Donnie said trying to keep up the pace from behind while working his hand held computer at the same time.
They hit the gallery doors and hung on for dear life as they broke out into the grass lawn that connected the museum to the Capitol building. Celeste was a few yards ahead of them leading the way.
Prime lifted the arm that Leo desperately fought to wrestle and out of its wrist popped up an array of small missiles.
Leo’s eyes widened. “Celeste look out!!!!!”
All of the missiles launched at once and barraged down on her. She already saw it coming though and as they hit the ground and exploded around her she wrapped her arms around herself and whispered, “Metamorphosis!” Her clothes warped and rearranged themselves into the black and purple battle suit she sported during their first encounter.
The missile fire consumed her body and yet it didn’t scratch her. She waved her hand and dispersed the flames starring back at the Titan and ready to square off with him.
“Should of stuck with the laser beams.” She chided and launched a giant 4 foot icicle at it. Even though it struck him dead in the chest it broke into a million fragments leaving him unscathed.
As the turtles continued to their hold on him Celeste ran in a large circle around him and fired off another icicle. Damn,,,he reflects magic! She cursed to herself.
Prime had enough with the Turtles and attempted to throw them off, first grabbing Raph by the leg and hurling him some 20 yards away. Leo dodged the hand that grabbed for him and attempted to knock the box out of the other hand only to find the metal fingers in a death grip around it. If he couldn’t even dent it with his sword he certainly wasn’t going to be able to force the fingers off the box by his own strength.
Mikey was still being dragged around as the titan lifted its leg with him still dangling by it and slammed him hard into the ground. Donnie pulled him out of the way before a large metal foot could crush him to death.
“We aren’t going to win this by brute strength! The metal is totally impervious to any physical attacks!” Donnie shouted.
“Well then I suggest you come up with something really fast!!!!” Leo screamed as wrapped his legs around the things neck and attempted one last time to drive his sword through the glass. His katana snapped in two as prime grabbed his ankle and threw him aside.
“Im trying very hard to but…Ahhh shit my battery is dead! I swore I charged this damn thing this morning!!!!!!” Donnie cursed at his black computer and shook it in frustration.
Celeste suddenly had the craziest idea thanks to Donnie’s words.
“Do you think I have not learned anything the past 5 years! Your tricks are the same as back then stupid mongrels!” Prime said as the Turtles regrouped and stood their ground.
Celeste raced over to Donnie’s side. “How much of him is metal?”
“90% of him. Why?”
“You think a lightning strike might stop him?”
Donnie’s face lit up. “Ohhhhhhhhh…..” He knew exactly what she had in mind. “Wait, where are you going to find a power source that big?....Oh my god why did I just ask that?” He slapped his forehead. He knew she meant to use the Kryst in its hands against him and he had a feeling it involved the pond in front of the capitol.
“Lead him to the pond and leave the rest to me. God willing we don’t all blow ourselves up in the process!”
“That is freaking brilliant!” Donnie smiled wide.
“Should I even guess what’s going through your dweebish mind right now?!” Raph growled.
“Nothing a simpleton like you would understand.” Donnie smirked.
“Donnie come with me!” Celeste urged and pulled him by the arm towards the pond.
“Enough of this turtles!!!!” Prime grew impatient and launched another missile attack on them. They artfully dodged but still felt the shockwave of each explosion knock them slightly off kilter. Despite the fact that it still hurt like heck they taunted the metal beast and corralled it towards the pond.
Celeste had already made it to the ponds edge with Donnie in tow.“I probably don’t need to tell you what’s going on.” She said hastily.
“You need to trigger a reaction from the Kryst somehow and if you are thinking what I am thinking…there is a power cable running on the backside of the pond where the cement is!”
“Excellent!” She jumped over the pond and with her fist hit the cement. The concrete buckled and rippled as it gave way under the force and jutted in large stallagtites around her. She reach into the hole she created, fished out a large black cable and pulled it with all her might.
“Wait your going do this by hand?!” Donnie panicked.
“Lightning is one of my elements so something like this cant hurt me…well not very much anyway….”She shrugged and dragged the cable to the ponds end. She spliced it down the middle and held the severed ends in either hand. “Get him into the pond and then get the hell away fast!”
“What about you?!”
“As long as I synch my energy to the Kryst it should be okay so just sit back and enjoy the show!”
The Titan and the turtles came crashing over the hedge barrier and barreling towards them.
“Try to get it into the water!!!!” She screamed as they struggled to stay ahead of the beast. They reached the edge of the pond and then broke off to the sides.
“I think its Buck Buck time.” Mikey smiled.
“Definitely Buck Buck time.” Leo smirked.
One by one they charged at the titan and using the force of their bodies hit him in the solar plexes with their feet as hard as they could. With each hit Prime staggered closer and close to the edge of the pond before Leo gave the coup de grace. Prime lurched back as his back leg involuntarily stepped into the pond to try to balance itself.
“Hit the deck guys!” Donnie shouted as they jumped out of the way and Celeste jumped into the water and raced over to the Titan, jabbing the cables into its body and holding it steady with her own two hands.
The water immediately sizzled and lit up with electrical energy that danced along Kraangs metal vehicle.
“Do you really think the human power grid is strong enough to stop me?! There isn’t enough energy in this whole city that could bring down my Titan!” Kraang shouted.
The box in its hands suddenly lit up. Veins of white light raced down the sides of it and down the hand that held it.
“What….?! NO!!!!!!!!!!!” The box lit up with white hot light as energy spilled from it into the metal body of Kraang. The metal giant hummed and vibrated with the electrical charge of the Kryst as the water around its feet boiled and churned. In a grand torrent of water and lightning the ponds exploded from the energy charge as Kraangs body sizzled and convulsed in pain. The glass shield protecting the alien shattered like a wine glass to a high soprano as the creature piloting it cooked from the inside out.
The metal giant slumped forward and fell face first into the steaming pit of water, smoke rising from its dead body and it moved no more.
Celeste was blown back by the force of the explosion and floated on her back. She propped her head up and tried to crawl out but her strength had left her. The turtles raced over and Donnie pulled her out of the pond. Tucked under her arm was the cube they fought so desperately for.
“It might still be alive.” She sat on her knees gasping for air as she fumbled with her visor and pulled it off.
“Let’s check it out.” Leo pointed at the giants remains with his one good sword. He and Raph jumped into the pond and inspected the thing while Donnie and Mikey tended to Celeste.
“Why on earth did you pull off a stunt like that?!” Mikey shook her by the shoulders. “You could have been cooked like fried chicken babe!”
Celeste laughed despite herself. “I could think of worst things to become.”
“What you did was absolutely crazy…brilliant by crazy.” Donnie shook his finger at her.
“Well actually I got the idea from you when you were yelling at your computer.” She chuckled.
“Hate to break up the nerd fest but you should come see this.” Raph hollered at them. They walked over to the remains of the Titan and looked down to wear its head used to be. All that remained was an empty half shattered glass shell. Kraang was no where to be seen.
“Wait we only took our eyes off of him for like 5 seconds!” Mikey said.
“Teleportation….”Celeste whispered and frowned.
“An old Kraang trick.” Leo sighed.
“No….this wasn’t.” Celeste said darkly. She felt the hum of magic in the air and it wasn’t hers.
“What do you mean?” Leo asked.
She shook her head. “this stinks of magic....”
Everyone stared at her.
Raph broke the silence. “That does it!” He was suddenly in front of Celeste and bearing down at her with his emerald eyes.“I ain’t sticking my neck our for some chick I know jack shit about! First it was the gang at the warehouse and now this?!” He gestured behind him by jutting out his jaw. “For some box that happens to go boom? Do you really think we are stupid enough to believe that?! The Foot and the Kraang has access to every arsenal you could imagine on this earth so why bother for a piece of freaking rock?”
“Raph, cool it.” Leo said sternly.
“You’ve told us nothing since you arrived, only half truths and stinkin’ riddles. What is this really about? Who the hell are you? The others are too gaga over your cute face to realize you aint everything you seem to be but I aint fallin’ for it sister! The kraang and the foot had been out for years and then you suddenly show up and its like back to square one!”
Celeste put her hands up. “I am not going to defend myself from that. If you don’t trust me, that’s your problem not mine.”
“My problem?!” He lashed out and grabbed a handful of her wet hair in his fist and yanked her head back hard. “We nearly got nuked because of you!!!!”
“Let her go Raph!” Leo shouted and proceeded to stop him but Raph shoved him hard in the shoulder.
“Quit trying to play the hero!”
“Leo step back!” Celeste growled through gritted teeth as she stood her ground to Raph, her head still pulled back in a painful position.
“I want answers and I want them now!” Raph shouted in her face.
“Or you will do what?” Celeste asked coolly.
Raph grabbed her free hand and twisted her wrist behind her back. She gasped in pain but didn’t resist.
“If you want to play rough then fine let’s play rough.” He hissed and twisted her arm more. She resisted the urge to cry out and bit her lip.
“I’m not joking around girly!”
“I never assumed you were.” She defiantly stared into his deep green eyes. A silent moment passed between them and Raph saw many things swirling under the surface of her violet iris’s. He suddenly let her go and stepped back because something he saw there made him feel so filthy and unworthy. Why on earth would he feel like that from roughing her up? She was absolutely nothing to him and yet he couldn’t stand to look at or touch her.
She rubbed her wrist and looked at Donnie. “How much time do we have until someone figures out what went down here?”
“As far as I know, no authorities have been alerted. Other than the explosion which might have been heard by the neighbors there wont be anyone coming for a while.” He said.
“We have time then….everyone follow me and I will tell you exactly what is at stake here but I have to warn you. What you learn tonight will change everything…it might change your destiny or your fate…however you want to look at it. If I were you all I would just turn away and go home.”
“You know we cant do that Celeste.” Leo said.
“She nodded. “I know….so please don’t judge me too harshly when you learn the truth.”
With that she beckoned them back towards the museum.
