Deep space. Not just space, but outer space where all the stars and planets meet. Earth is gone, with a few rocks there and about. Peaceful at the very least, but really not great. An explosion. A pained screech is heard as a monster is thrown off balance. It staggers to its legs that frequently turns colors. Its' eye dilates and it growls. "Please, you don't have to do this to me!" A lightning bolt pushes it back suddenly and it falls again. "I am sorry." A grey figure appears with bright blue eyes that is filled with guilt. "I don't have a choice, you either die or retreat, or I do the same. This is our life now." The figure's eyes suddenly glow, and he turns into a cloud and charges toward the monster. "The monster tries to duck, but gets swiped by the incoming cloud. It cries out, but then gets ready to pounce. "I rather not fight! Just let me sit in a spot in peace!" The grey figure turns back to his normal self. He understands the creature's pain, but it doesn't matter that much anymore. He has fought some others, killed or spared some. Suddenly, a calm but sinister voice startles Storm and the creature. "I'm getting bored Storm, just finish him off already." Storm flinched in response, he didn't want to anger Master, but he was normally chaotic or weirdly calm on certain days. "Finish him Storm! DO IT!" Storm stared at him blankly, but his stoic nature quickly turned into cowardly as Master roared at him. He noticed Nia behind him flinch in response. "I'm not going to kill you, I'll just knock you into a deep sleep." What?" The creature had no time to react, before Storm punched it in the face. It fell to the ground unconscious but not seriously injured. "Well, are you happy now coward?" Storm turned in surprise. "We don't have to kill everything, you destroyed nearly all of Earth's population 17 years back." Master's giant form, suddenly rumbled in anger and disbelief, but remained calm. "You are done for today, my student." Master suddenly smiled and turned to Nia. "Why don't you hang out with Storm, as he trains.." Nia just stared as Storm awkwardly smiled at her. "Oh don't worry Master! We will have lots of fun! Besides, nothing horrible will happen to him as long as I am beside him.
