Noob Saibot and Smoke had now left the abandoned fortress of Shao Kahn and began their walk to the portal. They climbed down the ridge and kept moving on until they were at the village adjacent to the portal.
"Where is he?!" The Hellspawn shouted as he flamed up.
"How many times do I have to tell you? I don't know!" Li Mei shouted at the Specter. "He would have killed me, I wouldn't mind facing him again myself, he must pay." Sektor and Smoke were now near the portal when Noob and Scorpion locked eyes. Li Mei and Scorpion stood several feet from Smoke and Noob.
"You thought you could leave me there?! HA! Now you will pay!" Scorpion shouted, his body engulfed in flames. Li Mei shifted her stance with her naginata to a battle ready position. Noob drew his pulse blade from it's sheath and began to walk forward when Smokes arm stopped his advance.
"No master, you go to the portal, I can handle these two fools." Sektor nodded his head, and said
"Fight well Smoke" Noob said disappearing into the portal.
"You fool! You let him escape! It will be YOU who suffers my wrath now!" Scorpion drew out his spear.
"I also wished to give him a piece of my mind, I'll fight with you Specter, together we will destroy this demon."
"COME HERE!" Scorpion shouted tossing his spear towards Smoke. Smoke grabbed the kunai, wrapping the rope around his wrist and yanking Scorpion towards him. He threw a cloud of smoke at Li Mei to keep her incapacitated for a moment. Scorpion unleashed a couple of punches on Smoke who blocked them, as he tried to land a roundhouse Smoke vanished in a cloud, reappearing under Scorpion uppercutting him high into the air. Smoke teleported behind Scorpion in mid air hitting him in the back with his palm, knocking him downward, Scorpion hit the ground hard and with one final teleport, Smoke appeared beside him bringing his heel down on the back of Scorpion's skull. Scorpion fell wounded and Smoke stood over him. Black blood dripped to the ground, and as Smoke looked down, a naginata blade pierced his abdomen.
"Ughh, where am I?" Noob clutched his metallic head looking around the mysterious room.
"You aint ever been in a prison before mate? You look the part."
"Prison?" He looked at his hands which were bound by some sort of hi-tech handcuffs, the specially designed room restricting his teleporting. He looked at the cell adjacent to his and saw the man speaking to him.
"The names Kano, I'd shake your hand, but...."
"How did I get here?"
"Dunno mate. I heard some security guard talking 'bout a bloke who tried coming in through a portal, was that you?" Things started becoming clearer to him.
"Yes, but how? How did they know I was coming through the portal?"
"The Special Forces have restricted inter realm travel, to Earthrealm at least. They lock up anybody coming through the portal, then they throw you in one of these special cells."
"Well, where are all the other prisoners? It's just us."
"Dead." Kano replied grimly.
"What?" Sektor seemed bewildered. Kano sighed then replied,
"We're on death row mate."
