    Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    I haven't posted most of my fanfiction on this site, so I'm gonna bring them over. This is Part 1 of a 2(3?) part story based on my Mortal Kombat fanfiction series. Redemption is a story based around the Tenth Mortal Kombat Tournament and follows the brother of Lui Kang, Chan (aka Hornbuckle). After gaining a losing streak of 9, Earthrealm only has one final chance to defend itself in the Tenth Tournament. This Story is a new take on MK1, but it won't begin or end the same way.

    Summary of The Events Before...
    Years ago, the Emperor of Outworld, Onaga, constantly invaded Realms in order to build a powerful army and collect the Kamidogu relics and become the one being. One of these realms included was a Realm where Nightwolf's ancestors resided. However, Onaga's plans were thwarted by his subordinate, Shao Kahn, who poisoned him with the help of his Shadow Priest in Training name Eva (Aye-Vah), who is also know as the most powerful Sorceror in the world as she can create the most realist illusions. His reasoning was due to his dislike of Onaga's illegal way of taking over the Realms. He came up with a new method known as Mortal Kombat! Due to the ease of the fight against Onaga, Shao Kahn hired the Outworld Sorceror/Writer, Ashrah, to craft a false epic story on how Shao Kahn and his forces defeated Onaga (1,2). However, her story went unfinished as she unknowingly disappeared from Outworld without a trace. Eva decided to take on the challenge of creating the fake story by also creating a carbon copy of a future ally known as Ermac. This false warrior was given the name due to his presence being the error that would completely change the timeline.
    Shao Kahn and his Champion, Ermac, travel to Zaterra to face off against Reptile. Before the match, Reptile was attack by a female Locust Clan Member. Though Reptile won, he was actually an agent of Shao Kahn. He ordered the completely annihilation of his own realm.
    Soon after, they decided to attack Edenia, however Edenia was prepared for the attack. Sindel proved to be a triple agent and decided to fight against the combined forces of Ermac and Rain. She decided to poison herself with a powerful poison that was strong enough to kill an Elder Lord Permanently. In the Aftermath, Ermac turned out to be a powerful Edenian known as Anomaly, who has the power to become a persona and turn that persona into a real being thus causing an anomaly to occur in the timeline. In order, she took on the personas of Eva, Ermac, the Locust Member, and Lokke all in an attempt to prevent Shao Kahn from becoming Strong enough to take Edenia. She is soon defeated by the combined efforts of Outworld, Edenia, and the Hired hand of the Lin Kuei and Shirai Ryu. Years later, Reptile replaced Ermac as the Champion of Outworld. Anomaly traveled to Sindel's Grave after being on the run for 6 months straight. She was suppose to get help from Khameleon to be hidden from her enemies for Good. However, she was killed by Reptile. At this Time, Kitana and Tanya were already born with Tanya being the Daughter of Anomaly and Half-Sister of Rain.
    During this Time, the Lin Kuei and Shirai Ryu were dealing with their own troubles (5,6,7,10).


    Compromise Full Story
    Years Later, Outworld begins discussing their plans for Taking over Earthrealm. However, their discussion is interrupted by a girl who was younger than Kitana name Li Mei. Because her realm was defeated the day before in Mortal Kombat by the Locust Clan, they because part of Outworld and were forced to endure hard labor. She decided to challenge them for a rematch, to which Tanya recklessly accepts. However, Kitana decides to take her on instead and easily defeats her. Later that day, Kitana is chastised by Shao Kahn because she chose not to kill Li Mei. When Tanya attempts to lighten her mood when they hang out, Kitana scolds her and kicks her out of her room. Tanya secretly expresses her hatred for Kitana due to her mother Sindel being involved with her mother's death. She is overheard by an inner spirit that promises to teach her sorcery and also by Rain, who challenges her to a fight. She is almost killed, but gets saved by Jade, whom Rain was against killing. Days later, Tanya was greeted by Quan Chi, Ashrah, and Shinnok, who was revealed to be the "inner spirit."
    During this time, Li Mei had a hard time adjusting to Outworld. She encounters two Locust Clan assassins who attempt to cause trouble at the place where her people resided. She defeats them in battle along with the help of Bo Rai Cho, who promises to help her. She refuses at first, until she was given a shady offer by Nitara. She decided to listen to Bo Rai Cho, who tasked her with retrieving Sindel's Vile. When she arrives to the location of Sindel's Vile, she encounters Mileena. She's easily overpowered by Mileena, but is saved by the arrival of Raskal, a native of Edenia. Mileena escapes and Li Mei befriends Raskal, realizing that not everyone from Outworld is a bad person.
    After 6 Years, Kitana disappears, which causes panic in Outworld. Jade decides to take on the search for her and finds her at an abandoned area. However, it turned out to be Mileena, who hid Kitana at the same location as Sindel's vile. Jade seemingly kills Mileena and finds Kitana unharmed and without struggle. Kitana willingly went with Mileena because she already knew about her origins. She still held resentment for her mother, but she decides to get over it and returns to Shao Kahn's castle.


    Rise of the Shirai Ryu Full Story
    During this time, the Shamans were killed by Skarlet. The only remaining members were Nightwolf, who was currently taken by the Special Forces, and his younger sister, Knightwolf. Knightwolf was the only member to overpower Skarlet and apprehend her. She agrees to let Skarlet off if she helps her infiltrate the Special Forces building to rescue her Brother, Nightwolf. When they arrive, Sonya Blade reveals that Nightwolf had been released long ago. Skarlet used this chance to attack Knightwolf and through her out of the window. However, they are interrupted by the Black Dragon Clan, who them kill off easily leaving only the strongest members alive (the named members we know excluding Tremor). They attempt to recruit the two, but the two decline. Skarlets reveals the real location of her brother as well as information on an informant who knew more about the situation (that informant was Tremor, who was still a member of the Lin Kuei). Skarlet faces off against Tasia, but before she could kill her, she is interrupted by the SF and Sonya. The Black Dragon run away, and Skarlet faces off against Sonya. As she escapes to the forest after seemingly killing Sonya, she is encountered by Sonya, who injected her with Cancer cells to ultimately weaken and kill her. Knightwolf arrives to the portal to Seido and was met by Reptile and Shelia (whom was the new leader of the Shirai Ryu after its destruction). Darrius emerged from the portal and destroyed it, thus preventing anyone in the universe from entering and exiting Seido forever. Knightwolf is devastered and joins Shelia and Reptile to defeat Darrius.
    Later, Knightwolf is brought to Outworld by Reptile and requests to get information on Tasia, Kabal, and Scorpion, to which Shao Kahn gives vague information on. (Note: I did not ever return to edit the timing inconsistencies of the story presented on fanfiction.net. So if you get confused by the timing, just take the time presented in this summary as the canon timing. Sorry for the inconvenience.). After 4 Years, Knightwolf is revealed to have joined the Shirai Ryu after her brother's death. In Earthrealm, Scorpion meets Chan, Kira, and Kobra, whom were looking for Johnny Cage. However, Scorpion didn't know Johnny and was only on the run from the Brotherhood of Shadows, Tasia, and Kabal. He decides to manipulate Kira, who was an avid fan of the Black Dragon, into leading Tasia and Kabal to a false location for where he was located. Tasia traveled to the bridge between Outworld and Earthrealm while Kabal went to the Outworld Armory when the encountered Knightwolf and Skarlet respectively. However, due to experimentation with Skarlet's blood, they gained powers that enabled them to easily overpower the two. Before they could both be killed, Kitana, Jade, and Tanya came to their rescue. Kitana hilariously defeats Tasia (Chapter 5. Trust its enjoyable, lol.) while Tanya and Jade critically wound Kabal. Knightwolf questions who Kitana continues to follow Shao Kahn even though she knows the truth, to which Kitana reveals that she still enjoyed him as a fatherly figure. Knightwolf enters the Portal to Earthrealm and is encountered by the other missing Shirai Ryu clan members from the first Brotherhood attack.
    Two Years later, Earthrealm is threatened by Quan Chi, Ashrah, and Shinnok who secretly infiltrate Earthrealm in an attempt to take over it. However, the Shirai Ryu decide to deal with them immediately. Bi Han also joins the fight on the side of the Netherealm and fights against Scorpion, ultimately killing him. It is revealed to actually be Quan Chi with the other Quan Chi being an illusion. Shinnok's full physical presence finally enters Earthrealm and he takes on the challenge of fighting the Earthrealm warriors. Shelia, Knightwolf, and Skarlet ultimately killed Ashrah, mortally wounded Quan Chi, and separates Shinnok from his Amulet. Shelia is killed in the process. Raiden and Fujin arrive to take care of Shinnok while Skarlet and Knightwolf choose to escape.
    Four more years pass, and Shinnok is finally presented his real amulet by Jataaka (as the other amulet was only a duplicate). The Lin Kuei recruits a new member who decides to take on the new codename, Frost. She along with Sub-Zero are tasked with fighting at the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament with Sektor, Cyrax, and Hydro overseeing their mission. Knightwolf has one final talk with Skarlet, who reveals that she will die in a few years and that she will be taking on a normal life. Knightwolf decides that her mission in life isn't over and that she must see the tournament all the way through. She travels to Shang Tsungs Island and decides to wait there alone until everyone arrives.


    And thus, we arrived to the Sunset Cruise!

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Sunset Cruise

    "Follow me Chan. Raiden asked me to lead you to him." Kira stated as she and Chan were running through the empty streets of Russia.

    "What about the Kobra?" Chan asked. Kira was silent for a moment.

    "Let's just run." Kira responded. They end up running into a dead end. Kira looks at Chan with fear in her eyes. Suddenly, a dark skinned figure with silver hair approaches them. She wielded a short katana and was prepared to use it. Kira rush into her, but she was quickly killed by the woman, whom slashed Kira's head off.

    "This can't be happening. What's going on here?" Chan asked. The figure turned out to be Jataaka. She disengaged her sword and began to laugh wholeheartedly.

    "I don't know what Kira saw in you. Can't you see, Hornbuckle? This is a trap." Jataaka responded. Suddenly, Shinnok and Quan Chi arrived before Chan while guarding his only way out. Chan was terrified by their presence, but he was also angered by what they did to Kira. Quan Chi smiled as he began to speak.

    "Welcome, Shaolin warrior. Your Thunder God is beaten; Earth's warriors, destroyed. You are the last remnant of the Forces of Light. Do you wish to beg for mercy from your new master, Lord Shinnok?" Quan Chi taunted. Chan clinched his teeth as he knew it was all over. He decided to make one final stand.

    "NEVER SORCEROR!" Chan dashed for the exit. Quan Chi glanced over to Shinnok. Shinnok's eye glowed green. He prepared to kill Chan, but suddenly he woke up.

    "Chan, Are you alright?" a voice called out. It was Raiden. Apparently Chan fell asleep while standing on the boat. He looked around and realized just how beautiful the sea was.

    "Yeah, I'm ok. I just had a bad nightmare. It felt so real." Chan said. He began to rub his forehead as he tried to remove the memories.

    "Why don't you go and meet your new allies in this tournament? It should help you clear you head." Raiden suggested. Chan nodded.

    "Thanks Raiden." He responded. Chan walks over to two other Earthrealm warriors who were conversing with each other.

    "What's up? It's Cage. Johnny Cage." The man stated to the woman. She rolled her eyes in disgust.

    "I don't have time for this." The woman said. "Either be serious or go away." She said. She then looks at Chan as she notices his presence. "Are you here to harass me too?"

    "Er…no. I was just being friendly. My name is Hornbuckle. I was thinking maybe we could talk about the upcoming tournament."

    "I'm not interested in this tournament. I have a personal mission. The name's Sonya by the way." She says as she walks away from the two of them.

    "Don't steal my thunder kid. It saw her first. Hey, wait up!" Johnny Cage said as he walked behind Sonya. Chan was confused. He then turned around and saw a group of three people arguing. It was two men and a young woman.

    "I've returned from the dead after you killed me. You stole your older brother's costume and tried to push the blame on him when you killed me. I will have my revenge."

    "The Shirai Ryu is dead. You are just a soulless corpse and a puppet."

    "First I shall kill you. Then I will kill that witch, Tesla. The Lin Kuei shall also fall to my wrath."

    "As much as I'd like you two see you two rip each other apart, I'd like to remind you both that everyone on this boat is under contract. If either of you fight before you are allowed to, you'll face deadly consequences."

    "Hey guys. I couldn't help but overhear that the three of you discussing the tournament. I was thinking maybe we could talk before we go out there so we'll know there are no hard feelings." Chan says. Both the Lin Kuei warrior and the Shirai Ryu warrior give Chan an evil glare. He becomes a bit startled. They then leave his presence and go to another area of the boat. Chan looks towards the ground as he discovers that it's hard to make friends on this boat.

    "Don't mind them. Their feud is too strong to be concerned with a mere mortal." Chan looked up and saw the pale skinned woman. She was clad in a purely original Lin Kuei suit without the mask. It was a plain blue sleeveless shirt with black shorts. She had a belt around her waist with 12 different charms around her belt. She didn't even have the vest. Her hair was shaped in a bob and was snow white with mist coming from it.

    "You fight for Outworld, right?" Chan asked.

    "The Lin Kuei has been tasked with assassinating you and the other three Kombatants. I find it funny how even though there are only three people from Outworld participating in this tournament, we still chose to turn against our own realm for mere money." She explained.

    "Aren't you my enemy?" Chan asked.

    "I'm only your enemy if you want me to be. I heard you've been having problems with some missing friends, or at least that's what you've been yelling while you were asleep. It seems we have a common enemy." The Assassin stated.

    "That's why I'm here. It was my brother's job to save Earthrealm, not mine. He and Kung Lao chose to fight somewhere else with Fujin while I'm stuck with fighting in this tournament. Whether we win or lose, all I really wish for is the safety of my friends." Chan confirmed. The Assassin tosses Chan a purple charm in his hand as she walks off.

    "My name's Frost." She stated.

    "Is that your real name?" Chan asked.

    "Not much realer than the name Hornbuckle. We all have nicknames; and you won't get special treatment from me." She replied.

    Forty-Five minutes have passed. Chan was reading letters that were sent by his friends Kira and Kobra, whom have both gone missing for the past week. The ship had finally started approaching the island's shore.

    "We're here." Raiden said. Chan put away his letters and looked onto the Island. "Are you feeling ok?"

    "I've never felt better." Chan states as he looks at Frost. She was speaking with Subzero.

    "I see you've grown fond of the Lin Kuei warrior." Raiden teased.

    "Ah, so you have a thing for ninja cosplay. Hornbuckle right?" Johnny Cage asked as he walked behind them. "The name's Johnny Cage. Sorry about brushing you aside before, I was just making my move with the hot blonde." Johnny then turned his attention towards Sonya, who didn't even look at him.

    "No, it wasn't anything like that." Chan confirmed.

    "Oh, is it someone else? You got a girl back home?" Johnny questioned more.

    "Perhaps Kira is the one you're saving your affection for." Raiden added.

    "Kira? As in the Japanese word for Killer? Yeah, good luck with that one." Johnny brushed off.

    "She's not a murderer." Chan said.

    "She may not be, but that woman is." Raiden directed his attention to Frost. She glanced in his direction and walked to another part of the deck. "They call her Frost. She took on the codename after the previous two Lin warriors who took on that codename were killed. Unlike those two, she's no hero, nor is she an anti-hero. She only seeks to destroy you. Watch yourself around her." Raiden advised.

    "You won't have to tell me twice." Johnny Cage responded.

    Once the boat reaches the shore, each of the Kombatants walk off of the boat and are escorted to the Courtyard. It is currently Sunset. Once they've arrived to the courtyard, they spot many unfamiliar faces there.

    "Raiden, do you think you can reiterate exactly who is who again?" Chan asked. Raiden nods.

    "That would definitely help." Johnny Cage added.

    "The Elder sitting on the Throne is Shang Tsung. Standing beside him to the left is Jade and Kitana, who is the step-daughter of Shao Kahn. Tanya and Baraka stand on the right. To the walls on the right are the Edenian trio consisting of Rain, Tesla, and Raskal. Rain is Tanya's half-brother and he is the Son of Argus."

    "You mean the Elder Lord of Edenia?" Chan asked.

    "That is correct. One other clarification is that Tanya's father is only Rain's adoptive father." Raiden added.

    "Yeah, we'll keep it as Brother and Sister." Johnny Cage suggested.

    "Beside them is the Netherealm spectre Scorpion. To our left are Subzero and your friend Frost. It seems that Sektor and Cyrax have joined them. Finally right next to them is…"

    "Kano!" Chan, Johnny Cage, and Raiden looked at Sonya who was looking onto Kano in anger. "I swear I'll capture you soon. You'll pay for what you've done." Sonya commented.

    "You know him?" Chan asked.

    "He's the leader of the Black Dragon. He murdered my old partner and best friend, Sgt. Capitol. I'll never forgive him." She responded.

    "So…how come no one here is arresting him?" Johnny asked.

    "Who knows?" Sonya answered. "I just want him for myself." She answered. "Plus, they are working with him. My partner is missing somewhere on this Island."

    "Do you think my friends might be here?" Chan asked. However, before he could get an answer, Shang Tsung began to speak.

    "Welcome Kombatants! You are here to participate in the tenth, and final, tournament for survival of Earthrealm. You must fight and defeat all seven of Outworld's representatives along with the champion, Reptile. Once you defeat him, you will face the ultimate challenge, me." Shang Tsung explained proudly. Johnny Cage chuckles as he glances towards Sonya.

    "He's the final challenge? They should just give me my medal right now." Johnny Cage boasted. Sonya closed her eyes and sarcastically smiled.

    "Then why don't you ask him for one." Sonya chuckled as she pointed to the right of Johnny. He looks to his right and is startled by the appearance of Shang Tsung.

    "What the—"

    "Outworld has the finest crafters of Silver and Gold. If you survive, I'll make sure that Li Mei makes you plenty of medals when we win this tournament." Shang Tsung states as he floats back to his seat.

    "Somebody's in trouble now." Sonya remarked.

    "For our first match, we will have Mr. Johnny Cage!" Shang Tsung announced. The monks cheered for Johnny Cage. He looks around and enjoys the support.

    "Yeah, that's right. Who wants a piece of this?" Johnny Cage taunts. He walks onto the courtyard and removes his Jacket and Shirt. He flexed his muscles and winks at Sonya. She looks away in disgust only to see Kano laughing at her while drinking his alcohol. His laugh upsets her even more.

    "Your opponent will be, Baraka!" The Outworld warriors began to loudly cheer on Baraka as he hops onto the courtyard.

    "Is that mask really necessary for this fight?" Johnny Cage asked. Baraka unleashes his blades and makes a throat slitting hand sign towards Johnny.

    "Those blades! How did you do that?" Johnny Cage asked.

    "You'll find out once they rip apart your flesh." Baraka threatens. Everyone is quiet as they wait for Shang Tsung to begin the match.

    "Round One…"
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    End of Chapter 1

    Next Time on RMK…


    Baraka takes a quick swipe toward Johnny Cage, who barely dodges.

    "Johnny, you need to listen to me." ~Chan

    "Ok, no more games." ~Johnny Cage

    "You will die!" ~Baraka

    Johnny tosses a force ball at Baraka.

    "Round 2…" ~Shang Tsung

    "Dang I'm good." ~Johnny Cage

    (Note: After this chapter, the story will use a new version of the "next time on…" author's note).

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Not bad....interesting

    However, some of the storytelling is ambiguous because of the inconsistencies with the real Mortal Kombat story and makes one's head spin. I have to ask why does the origin of the characters change? Is it still Ermac if he wasn't created from the souls of fallen Edenians?
    Are Rain and Tanya still Rain and Tanya if they have different parents this time?

    The main reason is because of Anomaly for the most part. She created Ermac (I'll explain in your second question). She killed Kahn's Shadow Priests and created Eva as the replacement for them all. She created the Locust Klan and her attempt to kill Reptile became a semi-canon reason for how the Zaterrian race was slaughtered. She created the first Persona of Frost (which isn't stated but on a semi-canon level, she became the main choice of who to design Skarlet after. She was just given a Noob Saibot style story). Their existence so early in the Timeline as well as the timing of the events in Rise of the Shirai Ryu will be explained later.
    Besides the writer occupation, her place of origin, involvement in most stuff, and her sister's name, Ashrah's story is still canon. The Noob Saibot thing is Semi-Canon with a name change. The thing about him is that every other person who died had the exact same powers when they were undead. However, Bi Han gained a new set of powers after his death? So I just gave him the powers earlier than shown in canon and gave him and Kuai there current code names to prevent confusion and add something new to the upcoming Tournament. But mainly the edition of Anomaly and her creation of people who never existed in MK pretty much caused a lot of the changes.

    The Edenian created Ermac still exists. The other Ermac was just a code name/legend given to a reanimated dead corpse in the living forest. The false Ermac died once the real one was created.

    They're still the same, just a detailed background. The only changes are their ages (explained later in the story) and that Rain is the son of Tanya's father instead of the son of a general (in which at the time I wrote this, I was mixed up on whether it was the Edenian General or Edenian Ambassador. However, just like the Canon Argus is Rain's real father so he's not really blood related to Tanya.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    I'm confused. I feel that it's imperious to read the previous stories to understand.
    What is the order in which the stories should be read?

    Mortal Kombat Mythologies. Then Rise of the Shirai Ryu. Compromise is more character based, and thus is more of a standalone story, so that one can be read before or after Rise of the Shirai Ryu.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Round One

    "FIGHT!" Shang Tsung Shouted. Baraka and Johnny circled around each other. Baraka sheaths his blades.

    "You have got to show me how you did that once I win this match." Johnny taunted.

    "An Earthrealmer such as yourself can't withstand these blades." Baraka stated.

    "Is something stuck in your throat?" Johnny asked jokingly. Baraka was angered. He rushed towards Johnny and swung his arm towards Johnny's head. Johnny ducks the attack and performs a roundhouse kick, knocking him back a little. Baraka shakes it off and uses a straight kick to Johnny's abdomen. However, Johnny grabs his leg and counters by punching Baraka in the face.

    "He's doing pretty well." Raiden commented.

    "Well, he is the special effects after all." Chan responded.

    Johnny Cage taunts Baraka to attack once more, which he does. Baraka performs some slow swings, which Johnny Cage blocks effortlessly. He then uses a two hit combo combined with an uppercut. At the end of the uppercut, Johnny tosses a force ball at Baraka. This causes Baraka to be knocked on his back.

    "Dang I'm good." Johnny states as he points his fingers at the crowd. The monks begin cheering while everyone else just seems impressed. "Who's next?" He asked.

    "That was only the first round Mr. Cage. You need two rounds to win." Shang Tsung stated.

    "Then ring the bell Granddad!" Johnny said as he grinned. Baraka rose up to her feet and prepared to fight Johnny. He unsheathed his blades.

    "Round Two…FIGHT!"

    Baraka takes a quick swipe toward Johnny Cage, who barely dodges. However, the blade does strike his shades, causing them to fall apart. Johnny waves his index finger as Baraka had made him angry.

    "Ok, no more games." Johnny stated as his body began to glow green. He used a Shadow Kick, but Baraka surprisingly dodges it.

    "You will die!" Baraka threatened. Baraka attempted to use a crossing slice to Johnny's head. However, Johnny ducks using a split and proceeds to do a nut punch.

    "Heh, not so tough now are you?" Johnny said. However, Baraka was not affected. Johnny was confused as he looked up to a smiling Baraka. Baraka places his fist between Johnny's eyes and proceeded to release his arm blade, which pierces Johnny in his forehead.

    "Johnny, No!" Chan shouted. He reached out towards the empty courtyard. Everyone stares at him in silence. He looked around and saw that everyone was still standing where they were before the first match began.

    "The kid blacked out again; just like he did on the cruise ship." Frost stated.

    "Choking already? This will be too easy." Tesla chuckled.

    "So we have two jokers fighting for Earthrealm." Tanya stated jokingly. Kitana and Jade also laughed at Chan.

    "So this is who you have defending Earthrealm, Raiden? You've humored me tremendously." Shang Tsung mocked. Raiden ignored his words. Shang Tsung started to give his speech.

    "Another dream?" Raiden whispered.

    "It felt just as real. This time, I saw Johnny die in his match against Baraka." Chan whispered back.

    "I need you to pull it together, Hornbuckle. Earthrealm needs you." Raiden responded. They then focused their attention on Johnny Cage.

    "He's the final challenge? They should just give me my medal right now." Johnny Cage boasted. Sonya closed her eyes and sarcastically smiled.

    "Then why don't you ask him for one." Sonya chuckled as she pointed to the right of Johnny. He looks to his right and is startled by the appearance of Shang Tsung.

    "What the—"

    "Outworld has the finest crafters of Silver and Gold. If you survive, I'll make sure that Li Mei makes you plenty of medals when we win this tournament." Shang Tsung states as he floats back to his seat.

    "Somebody's in trouble now." Sonya remarked.

    "For our first match, we will have Mr. Johnny Cage!" Shang Tsung announced. The monks cheered for Johnny Cage.

    "Raiden…I think those weren't dreams." Chan stated.

    "Your opponent will be, Baraka!" The Outworld warriors began to loudly cheer on Baraka as he hops onto the courtyard.

    "Raiden?" Hornbuckle stated in worry. Raiden shares his worry.

    "So those dreams…they're actually visions." Raiden responded. Chan focused on Johnny.

    "Johnny, you need to listen to me." Chan said. Johnny brushed off his words. "You need to use your green powers to win!"

    "Look kid, I know you love my films and all, but you have to separate fact from fiction. My victory is a fact." Johnny confirmed.

    "Round One…"

    "Raiden, I think there's nothing I can do." Chan stated.

    "Giving up so easy? That's not you." Raiden said. They looked at the fight and saw Baraka standing back up.

    "Round Two…"

    "He won't believe anything I say." Chan stated. "He's the same guy who killed me and didn't apologize for it. If it wasn't for you and Fujin, I'd probably be serving Quan Chi in the Netherealm."

    "You just need to tell him something that doesn't include his Seido powers." Raiden responded. Chan tries to remember everything Johnny had done in his vision. Then he replayed Johnny's death in his head.

    "Got it." Chan looks at Johnny, who was using a split to duck Baraka's attack. "Baraka is castrated!" Chan shouted. Baraka was angered by his response while Johnny was slightly confused. Sonya was disgusted and turned away from the fight. Rain, Tesla, and Raskal begin to slightly chuckle.

    "Why you little…who told you that?!" Baraka yelled as he looked towards Chan. He returned his attention to Johnny and prepared to attack Johnny. However, he realized that his vision was spinning vertically. It eventually stop spinning as Baraka's head was laying on the ground. He was viewing a red glowing Johnny Cage who had just used a powerful uppercut to behead Baraka. Chan was slightly startled.

    "Remember, you've returned from it." Raiden stated. Chan shook his head as he began to calm down. Everyone congratulated Johnny Cage with applause. During the applause, Johnny performs another uppercut which causes a second head to appear. Chan believes he might be becoming delusional as he is the only person who saw it happen. However, Kitana seemed to realize what happened too. She looked towards Chan and whispered to Shang Tsung. Shang Tsung then stood up.

    "Johnny Cage Wins. FATALITY!"

    "How did you see that coming, Earthrealmer?" Kitana asked. Chan was slightly startled by her presence.

    "Do all of you teleport without notice?" Chan asked. Kitana then pointed towards one of her fans which were lying beside Chan and Raiden.

    "We have our ways. Now, speak Earthrealmer." Kitana responded.

    "Does it matter?" Raiden asked. "Johnny still won fairly."

    "Raiden, even you didn't know of Baraka's condition. It was a last minute thing that occured two weeks ago after an attack in Outworld. There is no way that Kang knew of this." Kitana stated. She picked up her fan and opened it. She used it to cover her mouth. "I will ask you one last time, Shaolin."

    "I've had a similar vision earlier today that evil forces took over Earthrealm and Outworld." Chan responded.

    "How do you use those visions?" Kitana asked with a grim voice.

    "It just comes and goes."

    Preview of Ch 3: Dang I'm Good…


    Later that night, the Earth trio decides to sit around a campfire outside of their sleeping quarter. Johnny is sitting next to Sonya while Chan sits to himself while meditating.

    "If you're going to sleep, why don't you go to your bedroom?" Sonya asked. Chan ended his meditation and looked at her in irritation.

    "I'm meditating, not sleeping." Chan responded.

    "She's just being sarcastic." Johnny commented as he turned his head to Sonya. "Right?" Sonya looks at him in disgust. She moves away from him and decides to stand next to Chan.

    "This place you told me about, where can I find it?" Sonya asked.

    "There's a prison just a few steps outside of the courtyard. However, I recommend that you wait until tomorrow morning. Also, make sure you don't attempt to escape the island. As a participant, you are pretty much forced to be here to the end." Chan detailed.

    "Yeah right, once my team arrives, I'll bring an army and we're going to blow this Island sky high." Sonya stated. "I recommend that you come with me. Kano and Shang Tsung are gonna regret their actions. Payback is a…"

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Dang I'm Good

    "Oh Yeah! That's right! I'm so pretty." Johnny flaunts as he starts to pose for the crowd. Chan chuckles along with Frost. Sonya is slightly annoyed. "First I'd like to thank my producer Ron for helping me get my name out there with my third film-"

    "That was only your first match Mr. Cage. There are still seven other Kombatants that you and your partners still need to defeat. This doesn't even include our Champion." Shang Tsung explained. "Tesla!"

    Johnny Cage spots his next opponent, a young female sorceress in her mid-twenties. She adjusts her fingerless gloves which had a spell symbol bound to them. She has a smirk on her face as she can already predict the outcome of the fight. Johnny shakes his head smiling.

    "This lady? Like I said before, just hand me my medal." Johnny taunted.

    "I'll give you five seconds." Telsa stated.

    "Five Seconds? Please, I'm not gonna hit a woman; at least not first. Go a—" Telsa strikes Johnny directly in the jaw, sending him off of the courtyard floor. He is knocked out cold. All of the Earthrealm warriors look on in horror as they receive their first loss.

    "Five." Tesla stated as she rubbed her knuckles.

    "Tesla, Finish Him!" Shang Tsung shouted.

    "I was already ahead of you." Tesla stated. She began to look at Johnny, but did not approach him.

    "Have you gone soft Tesla?" Rain teased.

    "I put a lot of dark magic into that punch. It's eating away at his energy slowly but surely. He'll never fight again." Telsa confirmed. "Once his energy is transferred to my glove, he'll die."

    "Sonya Blade." Chan whispered. Sonya glanced in his direction.

    "What is it?" She replied.

    "I need you to intercept the fight." Sonya brushed off his request.

    "We can't interrupt a fight. Johnny's arrogance got the better of him. It's too late for him." Raiden responded. Chan looked at the ground to think of something.

    "I know where your partner is being jailed at; the exact location and cell number. His name is Jackson Briggs right?" Chan asked. Sonya perked up.

    "Tell me where he is." She whispered.

    "I can't tell you here, I'll have to tell you later. However, I'm probably going to keep this information to myself since it's—"

    "You're not going to kill him! I forbid it!" Sonya shouted. She began walking towards Tesla. Tesla had an angry look on her face, as did Shang Tsung.

    "You are not allowed to make arrests on my island." Shang Tsung stated. He suddenly heard a gunshot and felt the bullet strike his chair.

    "Shut it Sorcerer. You'll have yours later. I'm not making an arrest. I'm issuing a challenge." Sonya replied as she holstered her gun. Jade hoped off of balcony and walked towards Sonya. However, Chan tosses a coin at Jade to stop her.

    "You can't interfere with the tournament." Chan stated.

    "Neither can Sonya. What are you two doing?" Raiden asked.

    "Enough! It seems that Earthrealm doesn't like to play by the 'rules.' I applaud the enthusiasm. No matter, you won't succeed in this tournament." Shang Tsung said. "We shall adjourn until dawn." Shang Tsung said as everyone left. Tesla looked at Sonya and threatened to kill her. She then looked at Chan.

    "Tesla! Let's go. We don't have time to waste on these brats." Rain stated. Tesla complied and left the premises. Chan is relieved and Sonya walks towards Raiden. Johnny Cage wakes up and picks himself up.

    "Why are you on their side?" Sonya asked Raiden.

    "He's not on their side. He's only keeping us from destroying Earthrealm." Chan replied.

    "I see that reason is beyond your minds. I'll allow you three to discuss the tournament amongst yourselves. Hopefully, you all will have cleared you minds in the morning." Raiden stated. He then teleported away from the arena.

    "So he really is an Elder Lord. Hmph." Sonya walked off along with Chan and Johnny cage. Later that night, the Earth trio decides to sit around a campfire outside of their sleeping quarter. Johnny is sitting next to Sonya while Chan sits to himself while meditating.

    "If you're going to sleep, why don't you go to your bedroom?" Sonya asked. Chan ended his meditation and looked at her in irritation.

    "I'm meditating, not sleeping." Chan responded.

    "She's just being sarcastic." Johnny commented as he turned his head to Sonya. "Right?" Sonya looks at him in disgust. She moves away from him and decides to stand next to Chan.

    "This place you told me about, where can I find it?" Sonya asked.

    "There's a prison just a few steps outside of the courtyard. However, I recommend that you wait until tomorrow morning. Also, make sure you don't attempt to escape the island. As a participant, you are pretty much forced to be here to the end." Chan detailed.

    "Yeah right, once my team arrives, I'll bring an army and we're going to blow this Island sky high." Sonya stated. "I recommend that you come with me. Kano and Shang Tsung are gonna regret their actions. Payback is a…"

    "What about me?" Johnny Cage asked.

    "Why should I? Aren't you here for the camera?" Sonya asked.

    "That's true, yeah. But my time in the cameras is over. Besides, isn't your job to protect and serve?" Johnny asked.

    "No! My job is to take down the Kano. The destruction of this island is an added bonus." Sonya confirmed.

    "You're the worst." Chan commented.

    "What?"

    "The entire time we've been on this island, you've only been complaining and nagging. When will you get over whatever grudge you have with the world?" Chan asked.

    "Don't talk to me about complaining. You're the one always crying about nightmares."

    "My friends are actually missing. Your 'Team' only cares about saving themselves rather than protecting others. Why aren't they doing anything about these missing people?"

    "At least your friends have a chance of being alive! My partner wasn't so lucky! So don't tell me about people doing something to stop someone!"

    "Maybe…we should change the subject. What do you guys think about the beach?" Johnny asked.

    "SHUT IT, JOHNNY!" the two of them replied. The three continued to argue over more and more stuff. Unbeknownst to them, Frost appeared sitting at their campfire sipping hot chocolate.

    "I see you all still have a long way to go." Frost said.

    "When did you…" Johnny began.

    "You three aren't here for a vacation." Frost stated. "This is Mortal Kombat."

    "Yeah, we've pretty much realized that now." Johnny commented.

    "These people will kill us, we know that already." Sonya added.

    "You know nothing. Johnny Cage's death wouldn't have made any difference to the end result." Frost stated.

    "How could you say that? There is no price for the life of a human." Chan responded.

    "You're right. That's the exact reason why saving him now means nothing. I told you before that you only have four people fighting for Earthrealm. One of you have lost, which means Outworld is one step closer to victory." Frost explained.

    "So, exactly what happens if we lose?" Johnny asks.

    "I heard that we'd have the Emperor of Outworld merging our realm with his." Chan responded.

    "That doesn't sound too bad." Johnny commented.

    "Did you forget what almost happened today?" Sonya asked. She gave Johnny a confused look.

    "Hey, maybe they're just in it to win just like us." Johnny answered.

    "He's actually right. That woman was born in Edenia. The only warriors in this tournament who were born in Outworld are Baraka and Reptile. However, because they lost their realm to Outworld, they're too bitter to assist you all with ultimately winning this tournament." Frost explained further.

    "So if we lose this tournament…" Chan began. Both Sonya and Johnny were disturbed.

    "You will turn out to be exactly like them." Frost confirmed.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    End of Chapter 3

    Preview of Ch 4: Payback is a…


    "Well, Well, Well. If it isn't old Sonya Blade." Kano commented.

    "You're not getting away this time Kano." Sonya responded.

    "Pretty Boy ain't gonna save ya like you did him." Kano taunted as he got into an offensive stance. A lightning bolt strikes the ground a few feet behind Sonya. Chan and Raiden had appeared. Raiden looked at Jax and saw that he was injured.

    "I'll be taking your partner away from here so that I can heal him." Raiden stated as he walked towards Jax. They both teleported away. Chan decided to stay and watch. He saw that the copter was destroyed, but wasn't surprised.

    "So, anything I should know about this fight?" Sonya asked. Chan smirked.

    "Go wild. You're gonna win either way." Chan responded. Sonya smiled.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Payback is a...

    "So this prison you told me about, is it heavily guarded?"

    "Not at night. This will be the safest time."

    "Thanks again for the information. Also, sorry for what I said early."

    "I should apologize as well. I forgot about the fate of your last partner. At least my friends are alive."

    "Tell me, why are you helping me?"

    "I owe you a favor, remember? Besides, we're neighbors by law."

    "I thought monks were about peace. Isn't revenge against your moral codes?"

    "It is, but sometimes you just have to get rid of a problem. I wasn't able to get my revenge, but I learned to overcome the hatred over time."

    "I see."

    "Were you expecting a different answer?"

    "I was expecting you to stop me."

    Sonya was thinking about the conversation she had with Chan hours before. The sun was preparing to rise. Sonya began to drag her partner Jax out of the cell. He was badly beaten, but still alive. She traveled outside of the prison and arrived near the edge of the island. She decided to rest there and waits for backup to arrive. As Jax began to regain consciousness, Sonya began to talk to him.

    "How are you holding up?" Sonya asked

    "I'm fine." Jax responded. Sonya gave him a sympathetic look.

    "Liar. After I get you to base, I'm coming back. I still have Kano to deal with."

    "Your obsession with him is gonna get you killed."

    "I trusted him to turn himself in, and he causes the death of Sergeant Capitol. I'm not letting him go that easily." Suddenly, a helicopter arrives to pick them up. "I think our ride's here." She begins waving at the helicopter; however a gigantic fireball shoots up from nowhere and blows the helicopter out of the sky. Sonya could only watch in awe.

    "No!" Sonya shouted. She turns to see Shang Tsung standing beside Kano.

    "You have a challenger." Shang Tsung stated.

    "Well, Well, Well. If it isn't good old Sonya Blade." Kano commented.

    "You're not getting away this time Kano." Sonya responded.

    "Pretty Boy ain't gonna save ya like you did him." Kano taunted as he got into an offensive stance. A lightning bolt strikes the ground a few feet behind Sonya. Chan and Raiden had appeared. Raiden looked at Jax and saw that he was injured.

    "I'll be taking your partner away from here so that I can heal him." Raiden stated as he walked towards Jax. They both teleported away. Chan decided to stay and watch. He saw that the copter was destroyed, but wasn't surprised.

    "So, anything I should know about this fight?" Sonya asked. Chan smirked.

    "Go wild. You're gonna win either way." Chan responded. Sonya smiled. She runs towards Kano with intense rage. However, when she got closer, she spotted a red glow near his right eye. He fires a strong laser from his eye that knocks Sonya to the ground.

    "Weren't expecting that now were you." Kano taunted. He walked toward the Sonya as he prepped another laser. "When you shot my eye out 2 years ago, I got a surgical doctor to implant a weapon in its place. Seems like it came in handy." Kano fired another laser at Sonya causing her to grunt in pain.

    "Enjoy this while it lasts Kano. You're only making your death much worse." Sonya taunted in return. Kano continued to use his laser to keep Sonya down. Chan starts to get worried as he spots Shang Tsung smiling heavily.

    "Why did you lie to her?" Frost whispered. Chan attempts to turn his head, but he is interrupted by her. "Don't move! Keep still facing their way." Frost was standing back to back directly behind Chan. Her body was camouflaged by Chan's as well as her shadow.

    "I didn't lie, as long as she survives. I needed to sell her that lie because I really don't know the outcome of this fight. My visions only affect my life personally, and it seems that her life doesn't affect mine at all." Chan responded.

    "You've grown a friendship with her?"

    "I know exactly how she feels. She lost her friend because of him. I lost my own life once because of Johnny Cage. I would've killed him had I not attended this tournament."

    "Yet you asked Sonya to rescue him."

    "He turned out to be just as ruthless, but he's actually not a bad guy. I see that he made a mistake. He didn't even know that he had powers. He even forgot what he did to me, or he's just trying his hardest to forget. Kano is too far gone, and he's a negative influence on both Kira and Kobra. He's the reason they went missing, and I want her to annihilate him for that." Chan explained. Frost slid a charm in his hand.

    "Kano's not part of this tournament; which means you can intervene at any time. Toss her this charm and allow him to shoot it with his laser. Good luck." Frost vanishes from the area. Chan looks upon the charm and spots Kano. Without thinking further, he tosses the charm towards Sonya.

    "Sonya, catch!" Sonya, Kano, and Shang Tsung look towards Chan's direction. Sonya reaches for the charm as well as Kano. Right before the charm reaches either one of their hands, the charm combusted into flames.

    "You can't interfere with the match, Earthrealmer!" Shang Tsung shouted. Kano looked back onto Shang Tsung in anger.

    "What did you do that for mate?! That jewel was probably worth twice the amount you paid me!" Kano yelled. Sonya used the opportunity to perform an Arc kick to Kano's face. She powered her boots to the maximum gravity level, causing the kick to completely destroy the Mechanical part of Kano's face. As Kano fell to the ground, Sonya placed her foot on Kano's throat.

    "You idiot. How could you worry about a stupid gem when your life is in danger right now?" Sonya stated. Chan was excited that she was able to turn the tables on Kano.

    "Inconceivable! That is against the rules!" Shang Tsung shouted as he formed a fire dragon from his palm. However, the dragon deals no damage to Sonya. "How?!"

    "You didn't even sign Kano up for the tournament you cheater. Outside fights are against the rules unless both parties comply. However, it is not against the rules to interfere with outside fights unless you are the host." Chan replied.

    "And that means you!" Sonya stated as she pointed her index finger towards Shang Tsung. He became angered and left the area. She then looked down at Kano with rage. He attempts to get her attention. She lightly releases her foot to let him talk.

    "Sonya…you know you don't want to do this!" Kano struggled.

    "Actually, I do." Sonya stated as she pressed a bit harder, but Kano pleads more.

    "Look, I know what you really want. I know this guy…he's a Necromancer who can bring your partner back. He can bring…good old Sgt. Capitol…" Kano interrupted as Sonya stomps on Kano's lip. She then proceeded to stomp repeatedly on Kano's face eventually causing Kano's skin and bone shards to stick to her shoes.

    "Sonya!" a male voice called out. However, Sonya didn't hear him. "Sonya you can stop now!"

    She continued to ignore the person. She then felt a hand on her shoulder, but she strikes the person with her fist. She realized it was Jax, but she returned to stomping Kano's face in. She raises her foot up high in the air and was prepared to slam her foot heavily onto Kano's head although he was already dead. However, she suddenly stops.

    "All it takes is the flick of the wrist." A masked voice stated.

    "Great job, Kabal." Another female voice praised. It was Tasia. She walked over to Kano and held his arm across her shoulder. He was pretty much unrecognizable. "We would finish you here and now, but we were told not to interfere." Kabal stated as he released Sonya and used his speed to get Kano, Tasia, and himself through the portal to an unknown location. Sonya was angered. Jax was disappointed. Johnny Cage and Raiden were also present.

    "Ouch…" Johnny said.

    "You didn't need to go that far." Jax stated.

    "You shouldn't allow your rage to overcome who you are." Raiden added.

    "I know who I am. When people affect your life, it changes your views of the world. I've been way too nice, and it's time for that to change." Sonya stated. Her eyes were cold.

    "Never allow what a person does…"

    "Just stop it Raiden." Chan responded. Johnny, Raiden, and Jax were surprised by Chan's words. "You knew he was trouble for the longest. You're supposed to be the protector of Earthrealm, yet you weren't able to protect those who needed you the most."

    "We have bigger things to worry about." Raiden stated.

    "Not everyone from Outworld is bad, Raiden. Look at our opponents. Hardly any of them are from Outworld. There is no excuse for why you didn't prevent those guys from turning against their own realm."

    "They made their own choice. Just like Kira and Kobra." Raiden responded.

    "That's two missing allies that could've joined this tournament."

    "And if I save them or Sonya's partner, would any of you be here to defend Earthrealm today? If Jax were saved, would Sonya Blade have a reason to come? If I warned Johnny Cage about the truth of the Tournament, would he have accepted the offer? One thing you must realize is that if I made everything in Earthrealm become sunshine and rainbows, there would be no true reason for anyone to fight for Earthrealm. We would decline Shao Kahn's offer by default, and he would've wiped the entire Realm out just like he did Zaterra." Raiden explained thoroughly. Sonya, Johnny, and Chan looked at one another as they contemplated what Raiden said.

    "You're just full of surprises today." Jax commented.

    "Heed my words and remember them well. This tournament is very important for ALL of you!"

    Chan, Johnny, Jax, and Sonya accepted what Raiden had said. They headed for the cafeteria and Raiden looks at a nearby cave. He examines closer, but he sees no one there. He then follows behind the team. When they are all away from the area, Kitana walks out of the dark cave.

    "They seem like a fairly interesting group. Don't you think so sister?" Kitana asked. Behind her was her cloned sister, Mileena.

    "You really like Lui Kang, don't you?" Mileena asked.

    "I plan on making him my king someday. Otherwise, it would be you ruling by my side." Kitana replied.

    "I'm jealous of you. You plan to push me aside?" Mileena asked.

    "As if. My mother's soul is stored inside of me, so I know the truth about Edenia. I also know the true reason Shao Kahn had Shang Tsung create you, and I'm displeased by it." Kitana grabs both of Mileena's hands with her own and stared into her eyes. "Trust me sister, I WILL give you the life you desire. I WILL make you the new Empress of Outworld. And I WILL get my revenge." Kitana states as she hugged Mileena.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    End of Episode 4

    Preview of Ch 5: Neighbors by Law…


    "Why didn't you tell me who you were?" Rain asked. Chan got nervous as he thought Rain knew his true identity. "It would be a disservice to not give Earthrealm's champion an honorable death. It's no wonder why Kitana speaks so highly of you."

    "If you know who I am, then you should know what's coming next." Chan stated confidently. He entered a defensive stance as Rain just stood still.

    "Tell me, what are the chances are of you winning this fight?"

    "I'd say they are one to none." Chan answered as he performed a flying kick towards Rain. However, he completely misses as Rain simply steps over to the side. Chan then performed a combo of forwards punches and rising kicks, but Rain dodges them all as well. Sonya and Johnny become slightly worried.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    I'm gonna be honest.
    I did read almost all of Mortal Kombat Mythologies on fanfiction.net.
    I hated it. You are talented in creating an outline, but you don't have the skills to create the actual emotion for the scenes.
    When I read the summary at the beginning of this page I thought to myself "Uahhh, that's cool!"
    So, my advice is to try and do more of that, summaries for periods of many years I mean. They sound great. It's like a fantasy tale set in medieval times in the far East, with scribes and mythology and all.

    But as you do the dialogue it becomes childish and just not for my taste, sorry.
    I'll read The Rise of the Shirai Ray and Compromise later, but I'm telling you, I couldn't even finish Mythologies even though I really tried.
    Well, sorry for the rant, don't mean to be rude. But I think you want to hear honest opinions.
    Keep it up, you'll surely improve.
    If I don't intrude, may I ask your age?

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    At the time I made Mythologies? 16. But at the moment, 21.

    Trust me when I say I know exactly what you mean. That's why I went ahead and wrote the summary lol. The only reason I recommended reading Mythologies was mainly for the backstories of the New Characters. When I looked back at the story I slightly cringed and wanted to delete it, but I just left it anyway. The worst parts were the inconsistencies as well. There's a story to this, lol.

    I wrote Mythologies around 2-4 months around MK9 in script format (similar to how I did fanfiction before it) and posted it on this site. Then I wrote a season 2 (not the same thing as Redemption though) which was was slightly improved. Then I wrote a spin-off called MK Sisterhood based on Sareena, Jataaka, and Kia and that dialogue...is what made me just stop writing it and Season 2 around 2013. The version on Fanfiction.net is just a reupload with a completely different second half because:

    -Ermac was suppose to be alive, but I killed him off to prevent confusion.
    -Sonya, The Shirai Ryu, and the Lin Kuei weren't even suppose to be alive at that time which also caused a bit of inconsistency (which is why I made very vague explanations for why they're alive at the time Kahn and Co. were just choosing to challenge Edenia.
    -I wanted to Make Tanya the major villain in a future story, but that story doesn't exist and instead her mother became the new Major Villain.

    Since some chapters of Rise of the Shirai Ryu and Compromise are essentially Parts of the original Season 2 from 2012, you might notice the differences in the parts written in 2012 (specifically Chapters 1-4 & the first half of Chapter 5 in ROTSR and Chapters 2, 5, and the first half of chapter 1 in Compromise) and the parts added this year to both stories. You will definitely see a major improvement with Redemption (mainly because I was Reading all of the Higurashi and Umineko visual novel episodes at the time and that helped, lol).

    Thanks for the feedback though. Definitely appreciated.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Neighbors by Law

    "Let's leave!" Chan shouted. "We have who we need, so let's leave." Chan, Kobra, Kira, and a shadowy figure are seen escaping a theater. Along the way, they are fighting against members of the Brotherhood of Shadows. However, these people weren't dead. They were still alive and human. The shadowy figure created a portal that would lead them away from the theater.

    "Get in the portal NOW!" the distorted voice shouted. He was the first to leave, along with Kobra, who was half-way through the portal when we heard her voice.

    "Wait…..stop…you're…." Kira was gasping for air as she was being strangled to death. A white chain was wrapped around her neck. She could barely cry for help.

    "Stop it! Stop!" Chan shouted. Kobra wanted to help, but due to the fact that the portal would close soon, he decided to leave them.

    "I'm sorry, Shaolin, but it must be done." The figure behind Kira stated. It turned out to be Frost. "As soon as she dies, my revenge will be complete." Frost then used the chain to snap Kira's neck, instantly killing her.

    "NO!" Chan yelled as he rose up from his bed. He looked around and realized it was just another nightmare. He was saddened by what happened and became a bit cautious of Frost, even though she seemed trustworthy. Raiden entered Chan's room along with Johnny and Sonya.

    "Another Nightmare?" Sonya asked.

    "I hope not. Your match begins in 20 minutes." Raiden confirmed.

    "I'll be fine. That quick nap was all I needed." Chan responded. The Earthrealm warriors traveled to the courtyard, seeing the many eyes of the audience staring upon Chan. He isn't fazed by their looks, but he is skeptical about who his next opponent will be. He looks up at Shang Tsung and spots Kitana. She closes her fan and makes a threatening throat-slitting gesture.

    "Welcome back, to the fourth match up! The chosen kombatant will be Hornbuckle!" Shang Tsung announced. The monks praised him as he walked to the courtyard. "His opponent will be Rain!" Outworld cheers Rain on as he also enters the ring.

    "Well, it seems like this will be a short match." Tesla commented out loud. Chan heard her words and began to worry a bit. Rain pulled out his katanas and inspected them.

    "Before we begin, I…have to use the bathroom." Chan stated. Everyone went quiet.

    "You didn't go before got here?" Kitana asked.

    "I thought I could hold it." Chan responded.

    "You're lying!" Kitana shouted. "I've been following you all day; you went to the bathroom earlier this morning before Sonya's fight. You're not going to get out of this…" Kitana was interrupted by Shang Tsung.

    "Do what you must Earthrealmer. You can't leave this island, so I won't mind giving you a five minute intermission. Just make sure you return on time. If you feel that jumping down the pit is a better solution as well, then by all means." Shang Tsung responded. Rain shoved his blades into the ground.

    "Make it snappy kid. I don't have all evening." Rain said. Chan ran from the area. He went to the bridge that stood above the pit and looked at the volcano. He breathed deeply and began to shortly meditate. He looked down at the pit below as he reflected on what was to come.

    "I thought you'd be here." Chan is relieved to hear Frost's voice. She looked at him with a worried expression. Chan forces a crooked smile.

    "Don't worry, I'm not gonna jump." Chan stated.

    "You have nothing to be afraid of, Shaolin. Rain is just a young fighter from Edenia. He's not as strong as the other kombatants." Frost explained as she stood by Chan.

    "I saw that the woman from early was a close friend of his. You saw what she did to Johnny." Chan explained.

    "She's a sorceress. She has magic on her side. Lucky for you, she won't make it pass her next match. So hopefully you won't need to face her." Frost said.

    "Well, I'm guess this might be goodbye for us." Chan said as he began to hug Frost. She jabs him in the shoulder and avoids his hug.

    "Don't start that soft stuff, Shaolin. You're not gonna die in this fight." Frost stated. She then points towards the charm she gave Chan yesterday. "I won't let it happen." As Frost began to leave the area, Chan calls out to her.

    "Before you go, I want to know." Chan began. "Why are you working so hard to help me?" he asked. Frost didn't look back.

    "Even though we fight on opposing sides, we're still Neighbors by Law." She responded.

    Chan finally returns to the courtyard more ready than ever as he stands before Rain. Rain pulls his swords out of the ground and sends them away as he prepares himself to face Chan.

    "Why didn't you tell me who you were?" Rain asked. Chan got nervous as he thought Rain knew his true identity. "It would be a disservice to not give Earthrealm's champion an honorable death. It's no wonder why Kitana speaks so highly of you."

    "If you know who I am, then you should know what's coming next." Hornbuckle stated confidently. He entered a defensive stance as Rain just stood still.

    "Tell me, what are the chances are of you winning this fight?"

    "I'd say they are one to none." Chan answered as he performed a flying kick towards Rain. However, he completely misses as Rain simply steps over to the side. Chan then performed a combo of forward punches and rising kicks, but Rain dodges them all as well. Sonya and Johnny become slightly worried.

    "His moves are sweet, though not better than mine." Johnny commented.

    "Shut it Johnny! Can't you see this is serious? That guy is just toying with him, but he's still unable to land one blow." Sonya stated.

    "His Shaolin training has taught him many things. However, he still has yet to learn how to harness the same powers as his brother." Raiden responded.

    "Wait, you mean that's not…?" Sonya asked.

    "He's here to fight on his behalf. We needed someone to fill the role. Lui Kang is currently in Outworld along with Kung Lao and Fujin as Shao Kahn seems to be using some illegal tactics to win these tournaments. The reason he isn't using his real powers is due to the fact that he must keep up with his false persona until the tournament ends." Raiden explained.

    "I never knew Elder Lords cheat." Johnny responded.

    "It's not cheating if Outworld does not double check the kombatants." Raiden confirmed.

    Chan continuously attempts to strike Rain with a physical blow, but he continues to prove unsuccessful. As he begins to get tired, Rain summons one of his katanas and attempts to slash Chan. However, he doesn't place a deep wound on Chan as he attempted to dodge the blade.

    "Nice job dodging that, but this match is turning out to be more boring than I expected." Rain stated.

    He continued to slash at Chan with a full on assault. Chan is able to dodge some attacks, but he still receives a few small cuts to the arms. Suddenly, Rain drops one katana raises his arm in the air. A storm cloud suddenly approaches the courtyard. Rain splashed water onto hornbuckle, and called upon a powerful lightning strike onto Chan.

    "Kirtes Gintilh!" Rain shouts.

    "Hornbuckle!" Sonya and Johnny shouted. The lightning bolt quickly slams onto Chan causing a shockwave across the area.

    "Easy target." Rain boasted. However, as he and everyone looked closely at Chan, he was holding his right hand in the air. The lightning was traveling through his body like he was Raiden.

    "He's your son?" Johnny asked Raiden. Raiden looked at Johnny Cage with a serious, but angry, look on his face. Sonya chuckled a bit.

    "What sorcery is this? That lightning strike should've killed you!" Rain stated. Chan pointed his hand towards Rain and created a ring of fire from his hand.

    "It seems my fire has been lit." Chan stated. He then fired a powerful fire blast against Rain's chest, which knocks him back a few feet. The Earthrealmers cheer while Outworld is in awe. Chan feels much more enthusiastic as he sees that Rain is unharmed by the blast.

    "Funny how I have the powers of water and you have the power of fire. Too bad you're bound to be extinguished!" Rain taunted.

    "Round Two…FIGHT!"
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    End of Chapter 5

    Preview of Ch 6: What are the Chances?


    "Alright!" Sonya shouts with excitement.

    "He should've 'buckled' up for that one." Johnny Cage remarked. Sonya face palmed herself and shook her head horizontally. "What? I'm working on it."

    "His fight's not finished yet." Raiden confirmed.

    "I thought we only had to win two rounds?" Johnny stated.

    "Yet, someone lost their match in one." Sonya snarkly remarked. Back on the courtyard, Rain rises from the ground as he drops one of his katanas. He points his free hand at Chan, who looks onto him in suspense.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    What are the Chances?

    Chan begins to shoot multiple small fire bullets at Rain, whom uses his mini water bubbles to defend himself from the fire bullets. As he is distracted, Chan rushes towards him and attempts to use multiple strikes against Rain. Rain attempts to block a swift kick from Chan, but he gets a wake-up call as Chan's kick was powered by an electric pulse. It causes Rain to get shocked, stunning him for a minute. Then Chan fires another fire blast against him, knocking him back.

    "What's wrong, Rain? I'm shocked that you haven't killed him yet." Tesla teased in her valley girl voice.

    "That's my kind of woman. She has a real sense of humor." Johnny Cage commented.

    "You're a real sap, you know that?" Sonya stated. "I bet the groupies love it when you say that."

    "Jealously is a major killer." Johnny stated.

    "It's got nothing on me." Sonya replied as she looked at her boots. Back on the courtyard, Chan continues to remain calm as Rain rises from the ground.

    "You won't be laughing for long, Tesla." Rain stated. He began to draw water onto his blades to extend their length. He then swings the sword at Chan from a distance. Chan was barely dodging the attacks. He used his fire rings to steam out the water so that it doesn't reach him.

    "Shao Jiao Gaungshu!" Chan shoots a powerful fire blast in the form of a beam. As the fire came close to Rain, he used the water to create a water shield. The collision causes the entire area to get covered in steam. Rain looked around to try and find out where Chan was.

    "This is the oldest trick in the book kid." Rain said. Suddenly, as the steam clears out, Rain is surprised by a flying kick from Chan. The impact of the attack knocks Rain on his back once more. It seemed that Rain was losing.

    "Alright!" Sonya shouts with excitement.

    "He should've buckled up for that one." Johnny Cage remarked. Sonya face palmed herself and shook her head horizontally. "What? I'm working on it."

    "His fight's not finished yet." Raiden confirmed.

    "I thought we only had to win two rounds?" Johnny stated.

    "Yet, someone lost their match in one." Sonya snarkly remarked. Back on the courtyard, Rain rises from the ground as he drops one of his katanas. He points his free hand at Chan, who looks onto him in suspense.

    "I was born with these unnatural powers. Almost similar to how everyone in Edenia was born. The Elder Lords mated with our ancestors. Some of us are direct descendants. Today, you will witness the true power of a half-bread Elder Lord." Rain stated. He closes his hand into a fist. Suddenly, a water bubble surrounded Chan. Not only did it trap him, it was also filled with water. Chan was slowly drowning.

    "Oh no!" Sonya shouted.

    "Dang it!" Johnny shouted.

    "Shaolin." Frost said silently. She grabbed onto her pendant.

    "It seems I've caught the biggest fish. I could allow you to drown to death, but I shall give you an honorable death instead. Once this is over, Outworld will have the biggest celebration around your grave." Rain stated. He points his sword in Chan's direction. He begins to form water around the sword as it begins to extend towards Chan. "Sadly for you, if this island wasn't surrounded by a large body of water, you could have won this fight." Chan begins to give in to Rain's attack. He grabbed the charm Frost gave him yesterday. It was glowing light blue. He looked in her direction.

    "I told you. You're not gonna die in this fight." Frost whispered. Subzero looks at her in confusion.

    "Don't tell me..." Subzero began.

    "You could learn a thing or two about using my charms, Subzero." Frost stated.

    As Rain's sword came close to piercing Chan's heart, Chan uses the pendant as his only defense. Upon impact on the pendant, Rain's water blade stops extending itself. Slowly, both the bubble prison and the water blade began to freeze. The speed of them freezing increased rapidly by the second. Eventually, the bubble prison was completely frozen. Rain's blade was completely frozen. Also due to the fact that Rain's sweat glands were active during the attack, his sweat glands were even frozen. Chan used his strength to completely destroy the ice, shattering both the prison and the water blade. Rain was still slightly stunned due to his sweat glands being frozen.

    "Finish Him!" Shang Tsung shouted. Chan looked at Shang Tsung, then he switched his attention to his Earthrealm allies, and finally he gave a quick glance at Frost. He hopped back as flames began to surround his feet.

    "Hi-yaa!" Chan performed a flame enhanced version of his flying kick to ultimately KO Rain. However, he restrained the strength of the attack to ensure it didn't kill him. Chan landed perfectly on his feet and wiped the top of his shoe with his hand. Rain was knocked out flat on the ground. Chan was still shaken with excitement. He was prepared for another round, until he snapped back into reality. He looked onto the body of Rain and realized something that slipped his mind a few seconds ago.

    "Hornbuckle Wins!" Shang Tsung Shouted.
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    End of Chapter 6

    Preview of Ch 7: Celebration


    "Everyone may adjourn. We will return after Tonight's supper." Shang Tsung stated. Everyone began to leave the area. Tesla, Raskal, Rain, and Chan were the only ones left. Raskal and Tesla looked upon a laid out Rain.

    "It's nice to see you're awake." Raskal teased. "I thought we lost you for second there."

    "With you condition, I surprised you don't lose a lot of things." Rain responded.

    "At least we didn't lose a match. You really let that Earthrealm boy defeat you like that? No wonder why your sister Tanya was able to defeat you so well." Tesla teased.

    "Half-Sister!" Rain corrected. "She had help from Jade." Rain stated. He thought about what he said and realized that he embarrassed himself even more.

    "Excuse me…" Chan interrupted. He was expecting a harsh response. "If I may ask, exactly how did his half-sister beat him?" Chan asked. Raskal and Tesla looked at each other and returned their attention to Chan.

    Celebration

    "Everyone may adjourn. We will return after Tonight's supper." Shang Tsung stated. Everyone began to leave the area. Tesla, Raskal, Rain, and I were the only ones left. Raskal and Tesla looked upon a laid out Rain.

    "It's nice to see you're awake." Raskal teased. "I thought we lost you for second there."

    "With you condition, I surprised you don't lose a lot of things." Rain responded.

    "At least we didn't lose a match. You really let that Earthrealm boy defeat you like that? No wonder why your sister Tanya was able to defeat you so well." Tesla teased.

    "Excuse me…" Chan interrupted. He was expecting a harsh response. "If I may ask, exactly how did his half-sister beat him?" Chan asked. Raskal and Tesla looked at each other and returned their attention to Chan.

    "Her story states that she used a spell that slowed him down. Afterwards, she used a powerful fire blast to ultimately take him out." Tesla explained.

    "If I may add, Tanya was only sixteen at that time." Raskal stated.

    "That's all lies. She can't use magic. Well, she can now. However, at that time, she didn't even know any magic." Rain confirmed.

    "Actually, I believe Rain's story." Chan stated. Raskal and Tesla were dumbfounded by his reply.

    "Wait, you agree with him? Even after you beat him?" Raskal asked.

    "Actually, I agree with him because I beat him." Chan added. "The description of the fight from Tanya's point of view is extremely similar to mine. I don't think its luck that caused me to dodge his attacks. For some reason, when I believed that I could dodge his blade, it actually happened. However, my fire is no magic. It was a gift from the Elder Lords."

    "This information changes the facts how?" Tesla asked.

    "Well, if she did use a fireball, he could've easily extinguished her attack. Not to mention that his water bubble would've killed her." Chan responded. "The only reason I survived was because of the charm that froze the water and immobilized Rain."

    "Great analysis kid. You're absolutely right." Rain stated. Tesla and Raskal were impressed. Chan helped Rain to his feet.

    "I'm curious…why would you associate with your enemy?" Tesla asked.

    "Well, this conversation helped me realize that not everyone from Outworld is a bad person." Chan responded. Raskal reluctantly agreed while Tesla chuckled at his answer.

    "That only applies to Raskal, kid. I went easy on you. The evil things Tesla and I would, could, and will do can't be reasoned with, especially when you face her in the finals." Rain commented.

    "Trust me, our match will be brutal. You will learn the true power of fire and darkness. And this time, no one will be able to save you." Tesla added as she kissed Chan on the cheek and gave him a sinister smile.

    *Later that night*

    Chan, Johnny, Jax, and Sonya begin walking down the halls of Shang Tsung's tower. They enjoyed the sight of his royal walls. As they walk inside the cafeteria, two of Shang Tsung's guards walk in front of Chan's. The trio became skeptical.

    "Here to get our interviews?" Johnny Cage asked.

    "Do you always crack jokes?" Jax asked.

    "Trust me Jax, he's serious." Sonya responded.

    "Shang Tsung has an invitation to the VIP area of the Cafeteria for Hornbuckle." One Guard stated.

    "How do we know you aren't lying?" Sonya asked.

    "Shang Tsung is not allowed challenge Hornbuckle, nor is he allowed to make someone fight him outside of the tournaments." The other guard answered. "In plain terms, he has benefits for being Earthrealm's champion."

    "It's alright, Sonya. I'll be safe." Chan stated. Sonya still refused, but Jax placed his hand on her shoulder. She decided to let it go and they continue to the cafeteria.

    The Guards escort Chan to the 6th floor of the tower, which was 2 floors below Shang Tsung's Throne Room. They spot a particular room and point Chan in it's direct. As Chan approached the door, he prepared for the worst. However, before he could grab the handle, the door opened. Jade was standing at the door dressed in her royal garb. Even though she was a servant, she still carried herself as someone of higher class.

    "If it isn't the Earthrealm Champion; welcome to the VIP. My name is Jade and I will be serving you today." She greeted.

    "It's...nice to meet you." Chan greeted. Jade showed him to his seat, but he froze up at the door. He spotted that there was only one small round table with 3 chairs. Two of those chairs were occupied by none other than Shang Tsung and Kitana.

    "Earthrealmer, you've finally arrived." Shang Tsung stated. "Please, sit." Chan was skeptical about the whole thing, but he decided to comply for the moment. He looked down at the food on his plate with suspicion. Kitana noticed it and decided to stick her fork in his food. She proceeds to sample his food.

    "Thanks for your concern." Chan responded.

    "You know it's illegal for me to kill you outside of the tournament. This is more of a…victory present." Shang Tsung stated.

    "Victory for Earthrealm?" Chan asked.

    "No, you fool; victory for Outworld!" Kitana stated firmly. Shang Tsung gave her a cold glare and she did the same to him. "We need people like you in Outworld. It provides stability and honor. Don't get the wrong idea about us from Raiden, we are good people in Outworld; we just do bad things to keep the Realms in Order."

    "I know. I talked to Raskal and Tesla already." Chan stated.

    "The right and wrong examples respectively." Kitana commented.

    "Why did you really bring me here?" Chan asked.

    "We only need one more victory for Outworld to merge with Earthrealm. Kitana has convinced the Emperor that she could persuade you to surrender Earthrealm to Shao Kahn in exchange for your lives." Shang Tsung explained.

    "Then why are you here, Sorcerer?" Chan asked. Shang Tsung felt a bit offended, but he understood Chan's concern. He rose from his chair and prepared to leave the room. Kitana was slightly disappointed.

    "So you're really going to leave us here alone?" Kitana asked.

    "I didn't come to interfere with your dinner." Chan said.

    "Oh, and please enjoy the dinner, Shaolin." Shang Tsung was gone from the room. Only Chan, Kitana, and Jade were in the room. It was silent. Kitana decided it would be best for her to break the ice.

    "So, I was wondering...is your brother single?" Kitana asked. Chan slightly blushed and became embarrassed.

    "How...how would I know? He's dead." Chan remarked.

    "No he's not. We all know your real name, Hornbuckle. Who do you think gave you your codename?" Kitana asked.

    "I...wait what did you guys do?" Chan asked.

    "Isn't that the question of the day?" Kitana asked sarcastically. "I know you felt something was 'off' about that match today. And I'm not talking about Rain's aim." She explained further.

    "You know about that too? You have to tell me what's happening with me!" Chan shouted.

    "Calm down, Hornbuckle. Or shall I call you Chan Kang?" Kitana mocked. "Before we talk about anything else, I have to make an announcement in this room."

    "And what's that?" Chan asked.

    "It has come to my attention that I will be having an entertainment event in this room. As a matter of fact, you were in this event." Kitana stated.

    "You know as well as I do that it's against the rules for me to challenge someone to Mortal Kombat. I'm Earthrealm's contender for becoming the champion." Chan explained.

    "Are you this stuck up all of the time? It's just a quick spar with Jade. Besides, what will happen if I let it slip out that you aren't legally supposed to be fighting in this tournament?" Kitana confirmed. Chan glanced at Jade who slowly pulled out her magical pole's hilt. She used her energy to form the hilt into a two sided metal pole. She then directed it towards Chan.

    "So, what do you say Shaolin? Will you take my hand and dance?" Jade challenged. Chan looked at Kitana.

    "Don't worry; I won't get jealous this one time." Kitana stated. Chan grew nervous. He didn't want to engage in a fight, but he felt that he had no choice. He stood up from his chair and walked to the empty area of the room. He was ready to face Jade.

    "Round One..." Kitana began.

    "You know better than this Snowman." Chan falls on the ground after being surprised by the new voice. He got onto his knees in a praying position.

    "Forgive me lord Raiden. I didn't mean to do this." Chan pleaded.

    "Wait what? This isn't Raiden you idiot. I'm a female; Raiden's a male. Do we really sound alike?" Frost stated. She was standing on top of the table that both he and Kitana sat at. She took Chan's words into offense.

    "Oh it's you." Chan sighed in relief.

    "What are you doing here? Don't you know you're in the presence of Outworld's princess?" Kitana stated in anger as she rose up from her chair.

    "How did you evade the guards? How did you even get inside of this room? When did you get inside of this room?" Jade asked.

    "Pipe down kids. What I want to know is why are you lame brains sitting is this room playing tea time when the greatest match of all time is about to occur?" Frost asked.

    "Who's match?!" All three of them shouted in frustration.

    "Isn't it obvious? Subzero and Scorpion." Frost confirmed.

    "It really wouldn't be fair. I already know *spoiler* will win. He's going to slash off one of *spoiler's* arms, *spoiler* to him, and use a *Spoiler*. He will then *Super Spoiler*." Chan answered in detail.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Fire and Darkness

    Everyone on the island was standing around the courtyard. Many people still had food in their hands as they awaited the next match. Tesla and Rain were talking with each other. Raskal didn't come the Courtyard. Kitana, Jade, and Tanya were standing around Shang Tsung as always. The Lin Kuei was standing together like soldiers. Even Reptile, the current champion of Outworld, was watching the Match from a distance. Sonya and Johnny were standing next to Chan, but Jax stayed at the bedrooms.

    "What's so great about this fight?" Chan asked.

    "When a rivalry occurs and it's strengthened tenfold, the fight is usually a lot more entertaining." Frost explained. "These two have been at it ever since the fall of the Shirai Ryu. He caused Quan Chi to kill off Scorpion's family and clan."

    "Then why is Scorpion working with Quan Chi?" Chan asked.

    "He's undead and under Quan Chi's spell. He still believes Subzero killed his family." Frost added.

    "Why didn't you tell him the truth?" Chan asked.

    "I have my reasons." Shelia responded vaguely.

    "Care to elaborate?" Chan asked.

    "For one, he wouldn't even believe me. Secondly, I'm Lin Kuei; Scorpion's mission is not my problem. Also, I have a vendetta against Quan Chi. I have to play it safe." Frost explained. "I have more reasons, but we're not on the friendship level yet."

    "Then…where are we?" Chan asked.

    "You're just a Snowman." Frost responded.

    "Well, not much of an upgrade from Shaolin." Chan commented.

    "How about a bet? The Loser has to buy dinner; full course."

    "It really wouldn't be fair. I already know Scorpion will win. He's going to slash off one of Subzero's arms, breathe fire to him, and use a spine rip. He will then kick Subzero's headless corpse through a portal to the Netherealm." Chan answered in detail. Frost was disgusted by his statement. She then punched Chan to the ground.

    "I told you before, you're just a snowman. Don't speak of the Lin Kuei like that ever again. Got that?" Frost asked. Chan wasn't surprise as he nodded his head.

    "Don't say I didn't warn you when my dinner comes from your tab." Chan responded. Everyone then places their focus on Scorpion and Subzero as they stand in the middle of the stadium.

    "So we meet again, hell spawn. What a surprising and exciting reunion." Subzero stated.

    "Subzero…" Scorpion stated. "I'm not like I was before. I have the power of fire!"

    "My power has never changed, Scorpion. You'll only die again." Subzero stated.

    "Round One…" Everyone is focused on the fight. Their hearts race rapidly as they are ready to witness the greatest fight of their lives. "FIGHT!"

    Subzero creates an ice ball in his left hand. Scorpion vanishes in flames and ashes. Subzero is unfazed as Scorpion teleports behind him. He attempts to punch Subzero, but Subzero slams his fist on top of the ice, causing a frozen shockwave to knock Scorpion back. Scorpion uses a wake-up attack by throwing his spear at Subzero. It pierces him, but it turns out that Scorpion actually struck an ice clone. Subzero uses the clone to freeze Scorpion's spear, but Scorpion prevents him from doing so by using his fire to melt the ice clone. Next, he throws a fireball at Subzero, knocking him back. Everyone is currently impressed.

    "This was pretty overhyped." Johnny whispered to Sonya. Frost throws a snow ball at Johnny and gives him an evil glare. Back at the fight, both Scorpion and Subzero rise from the ground.

    "Nice to see you've had an upgrade thanks to Quan Chi." Subzero stated.

    "It's not an upgrade; it's a foreshadowing of the outcome." Scorpion responds.

    "A foreshadowing of how dead you and your clan are?"

    "No, how dead you and the sorceress will be." Scorpion responds. He dashes towards Subzero, who goes into a defensive stance. Scorpion and Subzero trade a barrage of punches and sweeps as they both attempt to take each other down. Scorpion powers one of his fists with fire while Subzero covers one of his fists in ice. The both use a straight forward punch and both of their fists collide. The impact of the attack causes a small shockwave while the combination of both elements causes the area to be covered in thick mist. The battle became a fog of war.

    "What was that about overrated?" Sonya asked.

    "We can't even see the fight now." Johnny Complained.

    "We couldn't see your fight with Tesla either, if you'd actually call that a fight." Frost responded.

    "Enough with the joke already! It's starting to get old." Johnny stated in irritation.

    "I'm glad you're starting to realize how we feel when you make stupid jokes all the time." Sonya said. Chan ignored them both as he continued to survey the match.

    Fireballs and Ice Blasts were being fired from all directions in the mist. Some of the attacks began striking some of the spectators. Some of them we're severely harmed while others used their wits and powers to dodge or disintegrate the attacks. After seeing how wild the fight was becoming, Shang Tsung signaled Tesla to handle the problem. She nods and begins to activate a magic circle that's on the ground.

    "Tis Olfo!" Telsa uses her magic power to paralyze both kombatants and make them fall to the ground. "Crael!" She then uses her magic to clear the fog in the area. Both Subzero and Scorpion were angry at the Sorceress.

    "You use your magic to help the Lin Kuei slay me again?!" Scorpion yells at Tesla. She keeps up with her serious facial expression and doesn't answer.

    "The two of you will not attack spectators during this match." Shang Tsung states.

    "Yet, you sure love allowing spectators to fight us, grandpa." Sonya states.

    "Ha, told you!" Johnny Commented. Shang Tsung ignored them both.

    "As I was saying, you two need to control yourselves. This is a one-on-one match and shall continue to be as such. The next person to break a rule will suffer the consequences." Shang Tsung states. Tesla deactivates the spell and the two kombatants rise back from the ground. "Now, Final Round…FIGHT!"

    Subzero creates an ice sword as Scorpion pulls out both of his blades. The two engage in a stereotypical sword fight which causes no harm to either of them. However, Subzero begins losing his grip as Scorpion began to continuously slam both of his blades against Subzero's ice sword.

    "Die, Lin Kuei!" Scorpion slashes Subzero's arm off from his elbow. He then uses his fire to burn Subzero's severed arm into ashes. Bi Han yells in pain due to the loss of his arm. Scorpion grabs onto his flaming spear and tosses it towards Subzero. Subzero begins to lose hope and decides to use his hidden powers.

    "Never!" Subzero creates a small portal in which the spear disappears inside. Everyone was surprised and shocked by Subzero's sorcery. Subzero summons his shadow to perform an uppercut on Scorpion. He then creates a portal below Scorpion's corpse and dives after him. A portal arrives above the stadium. Subzero and Scorpion arrive from the portal as Subzero slams Scorpion onto the pavement.

    "You idiot! What are you doing?!" Frost shouts. Sektor, Cyrax, and Hydro are in awe. Everyone understood what was going on.

    "I will ensure that you don't return this time, Scorpion." Subzero stated. He summons his shadow to grab Scorpion's neck as he grabbed Scorpion's legs. Before they could pull on him, Subzero is struck by a flaming dragon. Rather than knock him back, the dragon places him on paralysis. Johnny, and Sonya were confused. They looked at Shang Tsung, who had an angry look on his face.

    "This match is over. Scorpion is the winner by default. You, Subzero, have defied the rule of the tournament." Shang Tsung stated.

    "Why did he interrupt the fight?" Sonya shouted.

    "That's not Subzero." Chan stated. Sonya and Johnny were confused by Chan's statement.

    "I thought that was just something you…" Johnny began.

    "At this point, I think they planned this. Princess Kitana knows my true identity, but for some reason she didn't stop my match. She knew before we even boarded the cruise ship." Chan explained.

    "So if they find out about you…" Sonya began.

    "What does Kitana want with you?" Johnny asked.

    "I don't know, but something tells me it's nothing good." Chan responded.

    "You are not the real Subzero." Scorpion stated.

    "Of course not you demon. I'm his older brother, Bi Han; otherwise known as Noob Saibot." He replied. Everyone began to understand what happened.

    "Your brother killed my family and clan. He is the one I truly seek. You waste my time, Lin Kuei!" Scorpion stated as he sheathed his swords.

    "You're wrong Scorpion, how can you be so blind as to not see what's been going on all of these years. Do you not remember the first time you felt the cold blade slither down your spine? What about the first time I dug my cold fingertips into your neck as I ripped your head and spine from your body? Is it that complicated to realize that it's been me the entire time?" Bi Han explained.

    Scorpion began to have a flashback of the time he first fought Subzero. It was at a shaolin temple 1000s of years ago, when he and Ashrah were searching for the map to Shinnok's Amulet at the Shaolin temple. Both he and Ashrah fell to the hands of the Lin Kuei. Sektor cut off both of his hands and Noob Saibot ripped his head from his shoulders. However, Scorpion was somehow able to come back from the dead as he once was. However, the second time he was killed, he didn't return. He required the magic of Quan Chi to bring him back to life, which is how he came today.

    "Murderer…it was you who destroyed my clan. It was you who killed my family." Scorpion stated. Bi Han didn't believe anything that Scorpion was saying. He knows that neither he nor his brother had anything to do with the death of Scorpion's family and clan. However, he knew that his sacrifice would mean that Scorpion will no longer pursue his brother, Kuai Liang. He was ready for whatever came next.

    "Bi Han, no!" Frost shouted as she reached her hand towards him. Sektor and Hydro turned their backs towards Bi Han and began to walk away from the courtyard in shame. They knew that whether he survived or not, he would no longer be part of the Lin Kuei. Cyrax was shocked by the outcome of the match. He began to realize exactly how harmful the cyber initiative could've been if it was initiated prior to the tournament.

    Scorpion pulled his face mask off. His hollow eyes buried deep into Bi Han's. Frost began to slowly and unwillingly walk towards Bi Han. Chan saw what she was doing and went to go stop her. Scorpion breathed fire toward Bi Han causing his immense pain. As the flames began to melt his skin, Scorpion dug his fingers into Bi Han's neck. The next thing Bi Han knew, he was looking over Scorpion. He was then forced to look behind himself. He saw the devastated look on Frost faces as the boot of the undead ninja kicked his headless body into the portal. He then began to follow directly behind his own body, only to see the burning wasteland known as the Netherealm.

    "Scorpion Wins…Fatality!" Shang Tsung announced. All of Outworld began to cheer him on. Johnny Cage became sick after looking at the brutality of Scorpion's finisher. Sonya was utterly disgusted and turned away from the fight.

    "Frost…" Chan was saddened by the event as he saw that his prediction was exact. He actually made everything up from the top of his head. It wasn't anything he really saw in a vision. Frost could only look in horror as her partner was slain in front of her eyes. Her eyes had become dull and her mind completely shut down. She was like a hollow shell, still reaching her hand towards a corpse that was no longer there.

    Preview of Ch 9: Reunion…


    The next morning, everyone arrived to the courtyard. Raiden and the Earthrealm warriors were grouped together. Sektor, Hydro, and Cyrax were also there standing next to Shang Tsung. Frost was also with them conversing about Lin Kuei stuff. Shang Tsung ordered a silence as he prepared his announcement.

    "For our next match; it will be Sonya Blade vs Frost!" Shang Tsung announced. Both of the women step onto the courtyard. Sonya adjusts her hair while Frost cracks her neck. They stand face to face ready to begin the match.

    "You do know that you don't have to proceed any further in this tournament right? Why not surrender now and save yourself?" Frost asked in a taunting manner.

    "I'm not going to let some snow queen take me out. Besides, Earth needs as many victories as it can get. Am I right?" Sonya replied.

    "Hey, your choice." Frost responded as pulled out a new pendant.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Reunion

    Chan walks up to a grieving Frost who was looking down at the bottom of the Pit. She shows no tears, but he knew she was saddened by Subzero's death.

    "Don't worry, I'm not going jump." Frost stated.

    "I know he was your friend…"

    "He wasn't a friend. He was my mentor. Not only that, but he wasn't even supposed to be here. His Brother Kuai Lang was supposed to fight. Bi Han took the codename of Subzero and forced his brother to temporarily be labeled as Tundra. It was stupid of him. He assisted me in defeating Quan Chi and Shinnok prior to this tournament. He was blamed for killing Scorpion's family and clan. Twice actually, although, the first time really was his fault." Frost explained. She saw Chan focusing on everything she is saying. "Sorry for rambling on about this. It's just that I never wanted Scorpion to win that match. The fact is that Bi Han used Netherealm magic against a Netherealm wraith lets me know his future. That's the reason I want you to make it to the final match. I want you to get Shang Tsung to send us to the Brotherhood's HQ so that we can save our friends."

    "Wait, they're in the Brotherhood of Shadows? Does that mean they're dead?" Chan asked in horror.

    "No, they're a new group he created. Sort of like a gang. Mostly, whether they're alive or dead, they'll still be useful to him. He's going to turn them to his side slowly but surely." Frost said. Chan contemplated on her words. He then made his decision.

    "Right. We're going to save them all. I promise I'll make it to the end." Chan confirmed. Frost smiled and started to gain trust in Chan.

    "I'm going to tell you a secret, but you can't tell anyone else." Frost stated. Chan agrees.

    "Sure thing. What is it you want to say?" Chan asked.

    "Well…My real name is Shel—" Frost is cut off by the appearance of Kitana, Tanya, and Jade, who have blocked both sides of the bridge. Both she and Chan stand back to back as they keep a close eye on the three women.

    "What do we have here? It looks like someone is near a breach in their contract." Kitana stated.

    "Two someones at that." Tanya commented.

    "It's 'two people' Tanya." Jade responded as she face palmed.

    "Don't question my grammar Jade." Tanya responded. She began to ramble on with her eyes clothes and her nose pointed to the sky.

    "Yeah Jade, don't be such a grammar cop." Kitana said. Jade looked her way and began to argue with her over the purpose of using proper grammar. Frost grabs Chan's arm and gives him a frightening look.

    "All grammar aside, let's get down to business. Hornbuckle, lucky for you I'll be keeping your name confidential, but you still owe Jade that spar." Kitana returns her attention to Chan and Frost. However, Chan was already pushed off of the bridge by Frost and she jumped after him. "Hey!" Kitana shouted. The three women looked off the bridge as Frost grabbed onto Chan. They prepared for the worst.

    "Raiden!" Chan shouted. Suddenly, both he and Frost were instantly teleported to the top of the bridge along with Raiden. Once Frost noticed that they were ok, she released her grip on Chan. The thought of him nearly dying causes him to pass out. Kitana, Jade, and Tanya were impressed. They then escaped without another word, though Kitana gives them a friendly wave goodbye.

    "Your actions could have cost him his life." Raiden exclaimed.

    "I knew what I was doing, Elder Lord. Besides, we couldn't just stand there waiting to die." Frost replied.

    "I only rescued you because you were attached to him, Lin Kuei. Next time, you won't be so lucky." Raiden stated. He then picked Chan up as they prepared to leave.

    "I forgot to thank you for saving me the first time. You know…Shinnok's invasion?" Frost stated. Raiden looked at her with his eyes glowing. Then he left. Frost sighed as she left for her bedroom. "I guess you just can't please everybody.

    *The next morning*

    Everyone arrived to the courtyard. Raiden and the Earthrealm warriors were grouped together. Sektor, Hydro, and Cyrax were also there standing next to Shang Tsung. Frost was also with them conversing about Lin Kuei stuff. Shang Tsung ordered a silence as he prepared his announcement.

    "For our next match; it will be Sonya Blade vs Frost!" Shang Tsung announced. Both of the women step onto the courtyard. Sonya adjusts her hair while Frost cracks her neck. They stand face to face ready to begin the match.

    "You do know that you don't have to proceed any further in this tournament right? Why not surrender now and save yourself?" Frost asked in a taunting manner.

    "I'm not going to let some snow queen take me out. Besides, Earth needs as many victories as it can get. Am I right?" Sonya replied.

    "Hey, your choice." Frost responded as pulled out a new pendant.

    "Praying to someone?" Sonya asked.

    "Not really. However, you might want to begin to pray." Frost responded. "I'll even start you off. Dear God, I come to you today—"

    Sonya begins her fight with a few Tae Kwon Do techniques. However, Frost easily dodges each attack. Frost then creates an Ice Shuriken and tosses it in Sonya's direction; however Sonya dodges the shuriken and follows up with a roundhouse kick. The impact causes Frost to stumble a bit. She wipes the blood from her mouth and begins to smile.

    "I guess I won't need this charm then." Frost stated. She dropped the charm to the ground and crushed it with her boot. "I'm going to win with three ice shuriken and dodge your next two attacks."

    "You wish." Sonya responded.

    She attempts to swing her arm at Frost. She misses and Frost throws an Ice shuriken at Sonya's arm and causes it to be frozen along with her other arm. Sonya then attempts to use a roundhouse kick in which Frost uses another Ice shuriken which has the same effect on both of Sonya's legs to the ground. With no way of escaping, the match is now in Frosts hands. She places her hand on Sonya's head and prepares to freeze her to death. However, she leans over to Sonya's ear.

    "I've been tasked with killing you off. Do we really need that kind of thing happening?" Frost asked.

    "I still have one move I can use against you. After that, I can kill you instead." Sonya responded.

    "And if I die, so will Hornbuckle. He won't be able to defeat his opponents without my charms. His death means the end of Earthrealm. Again, do we really need that kind of thing happening?" Frost explains. Sonya is reluctant to believe her at first, but she decides that it would be for the best.

    "Fine. I'll bite." Sonya responded.

    "Good. I'll thaw you when we reach the portal to leave this Island. Don't waste the opportunity for you and Jax to escape." Frost uses her cryomancer powers to completely freeze Sonya. She then picks up Sonya's corpse and prepared to leave. Chan and Johnny Cage were shocked by what happened.

    "Frost Wins. Fatality...wait. What are you doing?" Shang Tsung asked.

    "What does it look like? I won. I claim this death. Is it wrong that I want a trophy?" Frost asked.

    "Those who die in my tournaments must lose their souls." Shang Tsung stated.

    "That's not a rule. Besides, weren't you the same person who allowed Subzero's corpse to stay in the Netherealm?" Frost asked. Shang Tsung was angered. He turned his attention to Sektor.

    "Do not worry, Shang Tsung. Her actions will be addressed once the Tournament is over." Sektor responded. As Frost left, Chan and Johnny began to discuss what just happened.

    "I can't believe she really did that." Chan stated. "There's got to be a reason for it."

    "I got a reason; she's a psycho. She's delusional kid." Johnny replied.

    "Johnny is sort of right. She is Lin Kuei. Did you really think she would side with us?" Raiden asked.

    "You three have no faith do you?" a female stated. It was a Shaman. "Until you see an actual body that is dead, never count a person out." She added. She then slid something sharp into her jacket as she made her way to the courtyard.

    "Who is she?" Chan asked.

    "Shang Tsung! I am done playing around. I have been on this island well before you and your warriors, yet you have placed me on the sidelines this entire time. Are you afraid that I will sabotage your victory?" the shaman asked.

    "Shang Tsung, I'll handle this one." Tesla stated as she finished eating a chocolate bar. She walked onto the courtyard along with the shaman.

    "Very well, for the next match it will be Tesla vs Knightwolf!" Shang Tsung announced.

    "That's Nightwolf, the shaman from old legend?" Chan asked.

    "That's her codename. She's not really a shaman, nor is she related to 'that' Nightwolf. She follows their laws, but she is actually one of the last members of the Shirai Ryu." Raiden explained.

    "She's more complicated than Sonya Blade." Johnny comment. Knightwolf overheard the conversation, but kept a cool head.

    "That may be true, stuntman, but I'm the Vanguard of Earthrealm." Knightwolf responded. "Besides, I'm the one who's going last longer than one punch."
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    End of Chapter 9

    Preview of Ch 10: Vanguard of Earthrealm…


    "You shouldn't be here Shaman." Tesla stated. "You fight for Earthrealm, but you're from Outworld. Do you not remember what happened to Zaterra when they did this? You're a risk to Earthrealm."

    "Are you really going to sit here and lecture me the entire time?" Knightwolf asked. "Rain was right, you have gone soft."

    "I don't know why everyone believes that I'm just some cold killer. I've only killed full klans of people, such as your real mother and father, your Shaman group, your Shirai Ryu clan twice, the Wu Shi Academy…"

    "Wait, that was her?" Chan shouted. He then looked at Johnny who was confused. "So it really wasn't you."

    "Of course not, I'm American kid." Johnny responded.

    "…The Lin Kuei almost fell to my power, and I've killed a Mass number of Children from Russia who've become members of Netherealm's most underrated group known as the Sisterhood." Tesla begins to laugh, but she gets struck in the shoulder by Knightwolf's spirit arrow.

    Re: Redemption: Mortal Kombat

    Vanguard of Earthrealm

    Knightwolf and Tesla circle around each other. Telsa looks onto Knightwolf with disgust while Knightwolf simply looks onto her with pity as she knew the truth of her origins.

    "You shouldn't be here Shaman." Tesla stated. "You fight for Earthrealm, but you're from Outworld. Do you not remember what happened to Zaterra when they did this? You're a risk to Earthrealm."

    "Are you really going to sit here and lecture me the entire time?" Knightwolf asked. "Rain was right, you have gone soft."

    "I don't know why everyone believes that I'm just some cold killer. I've only killed full klans of people, such as your real mother and father, your Shaman group, your Shirai Ryu clan twice, the Wu Shi Academy…"

    "Wait that was her?" Chan shouted. He then looked at Johnny who was confused. "So it really wasn't you."

    "Of course not, I'm American kid." Johnny responded.

    "…The Lin Kuei almost fell to my power, and I've killed a Mass number of Children from Russia who've become members of Netherealm's most underrated group known as the Sisterhood." Tesla begins to laugh, but she gets struck in the shoulder by Knightwolf's spirit arrow.

    "I don't care about your resumé. You're a perfect undead sorceress. You were always Quan Chi pet." Knightwolf stated.

    "I'll show you a pet, Shaman." Tesla says as she disperses Knightwolf's energy arrow. She heals herself and adjusts the glove on her left hand. The glove had a magic circle drawn on it. Knightwolf's eyes perk up as well as Scorpion's.

    "So I'm guessing that Ashrah really did…"Knightwolf began.

    "She will be avenged of course, but she can easily be replaced. Maybe when Quan Chi corrupts your soul perhaps?"

    Telsa forms a powerful fireball in her right hand. Knightwolf activates her Spirit Armor and rushes towards Tesla. Without hesitation, Telsa fires the fireball at Knightwolf. The impact of the fireball slows Knightwolf down a bit, but it doesn't stop her from running. Tesla then continues to fire more fireballs at Knightwolf, but they prove not to work. Tesla the forms fire in her left hand which turns blue. Knightwolf's eyes widen as Tesla throws the blue fireball at Knightwolf. Knightwolf creates a 4 layer energy shield to guard herself against Tesla's attack. The Impact causes a huge fiery explosion which also causes a strong shockwave. The Area was covered in dust.

    "You idiots." Kitana stated. She opens her fans and waves them rapidly across the arena causing the dust to go away. She then uses her fans to suspend both Tesla and Knightwolf in the air. She slams them both to the ground and closes her fans.

    "When did the Princess get so strong?" Chan asked Raiden.

    "Her Mother Sindel has a secret vile in Outworld; a sort of poison that has a risk/reward impact for Elder Lords. Apparently she survived it." Raiden explained.

    "How powerful is she now?" Johnny asked.

    "She may be a better match against even Lui Kang at this point." Raiden responded. Knightwolf and Tesla rise up from the ground and look up towards Kitana. Kitana gives them both a death glare. The two walk a few steps away from each other and then return to looking at each other.

    "Now then…" Kitana clears her throat. "Round One…FIGHT!"

    Knightwolf and Tesla's power begins to increase rapidly as Knightwolf calls upon the power of her ancestors and Tesla calls upon the power of Onaga's magic. Knightwolf runs towards Tesla with two spirit hatchets in hand. Telsa begins a spell chant as Knightwolf gets closer. Knightwolf reactivates her Spirit Armor as she prepares to strike Tesla. Once she swings her Hatchets at Tesla, her spirit weapons disappear.

    "What?" Knightwolf questioned. Tesla smiled and thrusted her hand through Knightwolf's left shoulder. Knightwolf's spirit armor vanishes. Tesla's hand was behind Knightwolf's back.

    "I can't believe I missed your heart, Shaman." Tesla stated.

    "Funny...of course…you wouldn't know…where it's located." Knightwolf mocked. Tesla laughs at her misery.

    "I've seen hearts of all sizes, shapes, and colors. You'd be surprised at the few people in the realms who have their hearts located in the weirdest places." Tesla explained.

    "Have you…never had a…heart of love?" Knightwolf asked. Tesla laughed whole-heartedly.

    "Of course I did. I've always loved my sister…at least before I was killed." Tesla stated. "When the two of us were chased by the Brotherhood, we were instructed to stay separated or else one of us would die. My sister was a huge fan of playing around with magic. She found a way to travel the realms and learned about the secret of Onaga's magic. She trusted the information and defied Quan Chi's instructions. This caused him to take it out on me. I'm been his undead slave for years, only to be a blackmail tactic and bargaining chip to be used against my sister. Of course, I was eventually given the freedom to go wherever I want, in which I chose Edenia."

    "Why not Earth?" Knightwolf asked. Tesla turned her head towards Raiden then placed her focus back on Knightwolf. Knightwolf begins to laugh herself.

    "What's so funny?" Tesla asked.

    "Isn't it ironic? Everywhere you go, destruction follows. Such as the loss of your family, the loss of Edenia, the loss of the Brotherhood, and due to the fact that you're fighting for them, you're gonna be the reason Outworld loses this tournament." Knightwolf confirmed. Tesla grew angry as the magic circle on her glove began to glow.

    "Finish Her!" Shang Tsung Shouts.

    "I got you now Shaman."

    Tesla pulls her fist back and prepares to strike Knightwolf. However, she is halted. She looks down at her crimson leaking abdomen. A 7-inch knife is deep inside. It's not an energy knife created by Knightwolf, she used a real knife. Tesla moves her hands by her wound hoping to heal it. Knightwolf doesn't give her a chance as she quickly slashes a gaping wound past her left side. Tesla's intestines fall out of the wound as she falls to the ground. Slowly she is dying as Knightwolf goes into a victory pose.

    "The winner…is Knightwolf!" Shang Tsung announced. "Fatality!"

    Everyone began to cheer on Knightwolf's victory, including Rain. Raskal was a bit saddened, but it didn't matter much to him. Johnny began to feel bad for killing Baraka earlier. Chan, however, was greatly disappointed with Knightwolf's choice. She walked towards their direction as everyone leaves the area. The hole in her shoulder began to instantly heal using the souls in her body.

    "That weird chick's coming over here?" Johnny whispered.

    "She just killed that woman." Chan whispered as well. Knightwolf finally reached their group and folded her arms. The team was quiet.

    "So…shall I gain no praise?" Knightwolf asked. They were still silent. "I will not bite. We are the same age Chan—in appearance that is." She said as she looked directly at Chan.

    "Your brother would be proud of your…victory." Raiden stated.

    "I thought you said that wasn't her real brother." Johnny stated unconsciously. Knightwolf gave him a cold glare. She wiped Tesla's blood off of her knife with a piece of cloth and proceeded to check it. Johnny remained a bit cautious.

    "You didn't have to kill that woman. You're a Shaman. You and your people don't believe in murder." Chan stated. Knightwolf stored her knife in her pouch.

    "Actually, I did have to kill that woman." Knightwolf confirmed. "I am the only person left in the Shaman clan, hence the reason I'm known as the Vanguard of Earthrealm. Though I am not a real Shaman, I still have their powers. However, my moral codes are that of the Shirai Ryu clan."

    "The Shirai Ryu died with Scorpion." Chan stated.

    "There are still three members left, excluding Scorpion of course. Skarlet is somewhere in America, relaxing after the fall of the clan. Shelia is here under her sister's disguise." Knightwolf explained.

    "That's not Shelia." Chan stated.

    "I thought she died during our fight against Shinnok?" Raiden responded.

    "He did a poor job of killing her; the same way you're doing a poor job in protecting Earthrealm." Knightwolf answered. Raiden frowned upon her answer. Chan began to feel bad as he remembers when he said those same words to Raiden the day before.

    "He's doing the best he can. It's no need for you to be a vixen about it." Chan responded. He had an angry look on his face, as did she.

    "He gave you that piss poor speech about how if he saved everyone, we wouldn't have chosen to join this tournament yesterday. The truth is if the Shamans were alive during those tournaments, we could've defeated Outworld all 11 times. We'd also have the Shirai Ryu fighting for Earthrealm. We were only killed by Quan Chi's forces due to their immortality. That's something that Outworld could never accomplish." Knightwolf explained. Frost suddenly appeared beside Raiden.

    "I see you've done your job well. Have you given them the good news?" Frost asked.

    "What good news?" Johnny Cage asked.

    "I almost forgot." Knightwolf stated as she lightly face-palmed herself. "Chan, I'm gonna help you with your 'Illness.' Consider this a Diagnosis."
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    End of Chapter 10

    Preview of Ch. 11: Diagnosis…


    "Ancestors guide me." Knightwolf draws her spirit bow. Her left eye glows green. She takes a deep breath and releases the arrow. She then fires a continuous amount of arrows in multiple areas. She was at the bottom of the pit.

    "Not a chance, Knightwolf." Frost stated. She dodges each of the arrows, as does Chan. The two of them continue to run towards Knightwolf. Knightwolf then prepares to fire five arrows at once. Chan and Frost prepare to dodge to arrows, but Knightwolf tricks them by causing them to disperse. As they are both caught off guard, Knightwolf uses a double kick to knock them both on their back.

    "Well, we can cross that off the list." Knightwolf stated.

    "You couldn't predict that?" Frost asked angrily.

    "My predictions aren't real." Chan responded.

    "Those past predictions seemed real enough. What's wrong now?" Knightwolf asked.

    I was gonna post my new fanfiction on the site but I didn't know I never posted the rest of this story on the site. So I'll finish posting the rest over the next few days. Otherwise, you can just read the rest of the chapters earlier as well as the other stories here.

    "Ancestors guide me." Knightwolf draws her spirit bow. He left eye glows green. She takes a deep breath and releases the arrow. She then fires a continuous amount of arrows in multiple areas. She was at the bottom of the pit.

    "Not a chance, Knightwolf." Frost stated. She dodges each of the arrows, as does Chan. The two of them continue to run towards Knightwolf. Knightwolf then prepares to fire five arrows at once. Chan and Frost prepare to dodge to arrows, but Knightwolf tricks them by causing them to disperse. As they are both caught off guard, Knightwolf uses a double kick to knock them both on their back.

    "Well, we can cross that off the list." Knightwolf stated.

    "You couldn't predict that?" Frost asked angrily.

    "My predictions aren't real." Chan responded.

    "Those past predictions seemed real enough. What's wrong now?" Knightwolf asked.

    "Who knows?" Chan replied. Both he and Frost rose from the ground. "Do you have any other test you want to give me?"

    "Trust me, I'm great at this. We'll be finished before your next match." Knightwolf responded as she prepares to fire another Spirit Arrow at Chan.

    "Enough with the arrows, Knightwolf! I know they're non-lethal. You won't kill me with that." Chan stated. As he finished his sentence, Knightwolf fires the arrow through Chan's heart. His eyes begin to slowly go dull as his vision fades.

    "Now let the chaos begin." Knightwolf pulls out the Great Kung Lao's victory medallion and begins to transfer some souls into the medallion. Suddenly, she is struck by a powerful lightning bolt from Raiden which burns her body and knocks hers unconscious. Frost looks up at Raiden, who was angry with them both.

    "The two of you know that it's against the rules to fight the Champion of Earthrealm outside of the tournament." Raiden stated.

    "Don't think that I won't fight an Elder Lord, Raiden." Frost stated.

    Knightwolf's eyes glow green. She begins to have a strange vision montage of the future. She spots Chan's fight with Scorpion, Chan's infiltration of the Brotherhood of Shadow, the War between Netherealm and Outworld after it has merged with Earthrealm, the death of Raiden at Shinnok's hands, the Sisterhood slaughtering Kitana and her allies, Chan and Kira running from Quan Chi and Jataaka, and Chan and Kira's death. Before her vision ends, she gets a vision of herself standing before the dead bodies of everyone in all of reality, including the Elder Lords and the Netherealm. She looks at a large Pyramid in which a fire spawn was standing on top of. Controlling him and standing in the front was the revived mother of Tanya, Anomaly.

    "No!" Knightwolf shouts. Her injuries are immediately healed by the souls that were inside of her. She begins to breathe heavily. Raiden looks onto her with anger.

    "Have you learned your lesson during your temporary sleep?" Raiden asked. Knightwolf returned the same look.

    "I don't have time for your smart remarks Elder Lord." Raiden begins to fire another lightning bolt at Knightwolf. However, a fully healed and revived Chan jumps in front of Knightwolf. He uses his power to absorb the lightning bolt. Knightwolf doesn't hesitate as she tosses a spirit hatchet at Raiden's chest. Raiden is knocked back with the hatchet stuck in his chest. Knightwolf walks towards Raiden and stands over him with a second spirit hatchet.

    "Finish Him!" A strange voice said in Knightwolf's ear. She reflected on the voice and recognized it as the fire spawn's. Chan uses Raiden's power to knock Knightwolf to the ground. Both of her spirit hatchets disappeared.

    "Knightwolf, I—"

    "I've figure it all out." Knightwolf stated. Raiden looks onto her and Chan. "Raiden, you need tell Lui Kang to go to Russia."

    "You kill the champion of Earthrealm and demand me to take Lui Kang out of Outworld?" Raiden questioned.

    "Raiden, in 22 Hours we will be experiencing Armageddon; and the revival of Anomaly." Knightwolf stated.

    "How do you know this Shaman?" Raiden asked. Knightwolf pulls out the Medallion of the Great Kung Lao and tosses it to Raiden.

    "See for yourself, Elder God." Raiden powers the medallion and begins to see the exact same visions that were presented to Knightwolf. Without further wording, Raiden teleported away from the island along with the medallion.

    "Why does he need go to Russia?" Chan asked.

    "Outworld is using Netherealm magic to speed up time." Knightwolf confirmed.

    "I thought we suspected that already." Chan stated.

    "You don't understand, in 22 hours it will be Tanya's birthday. Each time Tanya grows older, time jumps forward 100 years. The next 100 will place us all beyond the due date of Armageddon, and we will all die. The only people who have these visions are those who were chosen to be the Champion of Earthrealm. That's the reason you were able to see those visions. That's the reason you have Anomaly's power to fabricate new truths." Knightwolf explained. Chan was overwhelmed by the information Knightwolf told him. He still didn't seem to understand it.

    "So we need to defeat Quan Chi and stop the spell. That sounds easy enough." Chan stated.

    "The only way to stop the spell is if the creator of the spell uses a counter-spell to stop it." Knightwolf claimed.

    "Then we are all doomed since you killed her." Frost confirmed. Both Knightwolf and Chan turned their attention to her. Both of them had a horrified look on their face.

    "You knew?" Chan asked.

    "We both knew about the time spell, but you didn't think it would be important to tell me that SHE created the spell?" Knightwolf added.

    "Wouldn't that be your job, Vanguard of Earthrealm?" Frost responded.

    "I can't believe you. I really can't believe what I'm hearing now." Chan stated as he paced back and forward.

    "Don't blame me, Snow. It's not my job to save the universe. You said the same exact thing yourself. What happens to the world isn't my problem. As a matter of fact, I would enjoy seeing that happen." Frost stated unconsciously. Chan formed a fireball in his hand and prepared to fire it upon Frost. However, he doesn't as it would be against the rules.

    "From this day forward, we are no longer friends, nor are we associates. When we both make it to the finals, I promise that I will finish you. If you thought Subzero's death was horrible, you haven't seen anything yet." Chan responded. Frost wasn't fazed by his words. Knightwolf was shocked by Chan's responses.

    "I am angry about this too, Chan. However, I think that last line was a bit overboard." Knightwolf commented.

    "I don't care. They fight for Outworld. Therefore whatever happens to them, I don't really care at this point." Chan replied. Frost pulled out a yellow charm and showed it to Knightwolf and Chan.

    "Threaten me all you want, Fool. You can't win without this Charm." Frost stated. "As your enemy, you no longer have access to any assistance from me." Frost added as she disappeared from the area.

    End of Chapter 11

    Preview of Ch. 12: Finish Him…


    "Remember, the power of "belief" is the only thing you need in order to dodge attacks. If you lose faith at any point, you will die."

    Knightwolf gave Chan a pat on the back as he walks to the courtyard. Chan surveyed the area. He saw Knightwolf chatting with Raiden. Rain is teasing Tanya about something personal. Kitana and Jade are talking to Shang Tsung in private. Scorpion was staying to himself, possibly contemplating what happened in his previous match. However, there was one person who was missing from the pack.

    "Frost…"

    "Hornbuckle!" He heard a voice call him. He thought it was Frost, but it was actually Knightwolf. "Good luck." She said. Chan nodded. He knew she did that so that he could clear his mind.
