Kali ignored Zora
annoying laughter as she hauled back and kicked the woman in the face.
"Light's out." Kali smiled as the woman's head bounced from the
tip of her shoe and landed heavily on the ground. Hearing Zora's clapping
made her turn around. "Looks like it's just you and me now, Zora, old
girl." Kali stepped over the unconscious woman but she left enough
space for a decent head-start back to the cabin.
"Smart little shit,
you think you've out-foxed me." Zora said in a shrill voice.
Kali didn't answer; she
kept her eyes fixed on Zora's jerky movements. She could see the anger
boiling underneath her skin causing her veins to appear black.
"I know who's at the
cabin, Kali, a scared little witch crying in the night."
Oh no, she found, Skyla.
I've got to get to her. Kali tried not to show the emotion running amuck
throughout her core.
"Sebastian told us
about the little witch himself. Don't you think if he truly cared about you
he would have kept that tiny bit of information?" Zora smiled as the
tides turned in her favor. "You have lived long past your purpose now
you must die." Swiftly, Zora leaped over her fallen companion and
tackled Kali to the ground. Kali winced in pain, doing her best to stop the
barrage of attacks. She shrieked as Zora's talons dug deep her flesh.
"My pack has
weakened you. You've taken them on just as I expected you would." Zora
cackled as she punched Kali full in the face.
Kali's world shifted for
a second. This was her final moment. Zora was right, she was spent and her
last reserve of energy was depleting rapidly. The ground underneath the two
women trembled and began to shift beneath their weigh.
"What the hell is
this?" Zora sat back on her hunches with a puzzled look on her face.
Kali mustered up some
strength and kicked Zora away from her.
"It's not what the
hell is it; it's who the hell it is. Back off my sister you fuzzy
bitch!" Skyla yelled as she emerged from the trees, her arm
Kali rolled to one side
and started to stand; Skyla raced to her, put a free hand underneath her
forearm and pulled Kali to her feet.
smiled. "What took you so long?" She spat blood on the dirt and
wiped her mouth with the back of her hand.
Skyla shot her a fervent
glance. "Long? I had to waste time tracking your messes making sure you
killed them all," Skyla began.
Kali noticed a purple
bruise forming around her right eye. "I had a run-in with your
boyfriend and let me tell you next time I see him," she punched her
hand. "I'm gonna make him witach!"
"That's great but we
gotta deal with her first." Kali nodded towards Zora.
Zora flipped up,
snarling. "I'll feast on the flesh from both your bones before this
night is through!"
The sisters looked at
each other and then it Zora's direction.
"Do you wanna do
this or shall I?" Skye mimicked her mature older sister.
Kali waved her hand
dismissively. "Go right ahead."
"Ha! You send a
teen-witch to do your dirty work, so you don't have the balls to face me
alone." Zora laughed wickedly.
Skyla stood in front of
Kali, cast her head over shoulder to see Kali nod and then turned back to
Zora. "I am neither a teen nor just a mere witch." Skye said
"I don't care what
you think you are. You are a child in my eyes." Zora bellowed each word
dripped with malicious intent. Zora sneered and leaped to grab Skyla.
Skyla made a gesture as
if she were scooping up fresh dirt and the earth sprung up and encased
Zora's moving limbs.
Zora exclaimed in disbelief.
"I'm half witch and
half-elemental." Skyla squeezed her hand into a fist and rock cuffs on
Zora's wrists and ankles tightened.
"I bet Sebastian
didn't tell you that now, did he?" Kali asked over Skyla's shoulder.
Zora's struggled against
her bounds but didn't answer.
this." Kali said as she started to walk away.
replied happily. With a wave of her hand the bounds on Zora crumbled like
dry dirt. Zora hit the ground with a thud. She sprung up and laughed
"You can't hold me,
girl. I'm free..."
Zora didn't get the
chance to finish her sentence as two boulders collided into her head
simultaneously smashing it open like a rotten tomato. The headless body
flopped around before collapsing in a bloody heap on the ground.
"That was pretty
cool." Kali smiled, leaning against a tree.
"Yeah it was,
huh?" Skyla ducked under Kali's arm to help support her weight.
