Phoenix Tower The Start and End of the Nano Incident; Orbital Elevator Phoenix
Posted 19 April 2010 - 12:05 AM
R pushed the big metal doors. He leered inside, full of curiosity. He walked in, his feet making clank noises as he walked on the frozen floors. Ahead of him stood an army of Mets, and above them, was a mechanical hive of Bat-Bones. On it was an "R." This one room took up 1/8th of the floor. R looked to the left. According to the map he sees on the wall, there was over 245 floors. R could easily rule out 70 floors, as the top of the tower was decimated.
"... Don't make loud noises... We don't want to alert them..." R said.
Chiba nodded, and Kazuo was panting. R made his way around the rather large room, and checked the first door. An office. R stepped back, and walked to the next door. He could tell it was an Elevator Shaft. He pried the doors open, and looked inside. No good. The Walls are coated in ice. The Stairs are their only chance. Chiba and Kazuo followed.

"R, you found any activity?"

Chiba looked at him weird. "What? Cold? Can we even feel cold?" Chiba asked.
"I c-c-c-can..." Kazuo said, shivering.
R pushed another set of doors open. Elevator Shaft. Next door. Another office. Next door. Bathrooms. R was getting frustrated. He pushed one more set of doors open, and a Stairwell was there.
"... Yes." R said.
He proceeded through, and started the long climb. He went up 3 flights of stairs. Not one door. He got to the 4th flight, and he saw "Floor 2." R was shocked. He proceeded up the stair case more, until he reached floor 43. Chiba and Kazuo caught up, with Juno not far behind.
"Aren't we investigating?" Kazuo asked.
"Yeah... We're going to take it from the top down. The Elevator Shaft we'll use to go down." R said.
The 43rd floor had no stairs, and the walls were icy. "We're going in..." R said, kicking the doors open.

Juno caught up with them as R kicked the door open.

"... It seems that the Mechanaloids just want to make this place a home for themselves... They want to get away from all this disaster that goes on in the real world... We should leave now..." R said.
"... No, stay here, and go to the top. Something huge is waiting up there..." Chiba said.
"That's just the Dragon. He must be the keeper of the place." Kazuo said.
"No, this signal... It's a Reploid." Chiba said.
R exclaimed. "What!?" R said. "... No matter, we need to head up through here." R said.

R looked shocked. He faced forward, and walked past all the piles, and was searching for a way up.

He busted a door down, and found another Elevator shaft. This one had cables.
"Finally, we can use the cables. Everybody get over here." R said.
Chiba, and Kazuo ran to where R was. R jumped, and his arm transformed into a pulley that grabbed onto the cable.
"Let's go." he said.

130 floors until the top is reached.
R jumped off the wire, and onto the small opening for doors, he pried them open, and saw a room with nothing in it but a spiral stairwell that lead up in the center. Kazuo and Chiba entered, and waited for Juno.

A voice started to speak eerily...
"... Hmm... Maverick Hunters in... My territory...? This is a rather... Disturbing breakthrough for... Me and my pet... Unfortunately, you're time has run out... You shall die here... Except for you... Leader of the pack... I can sense tremendous... Power from one of you... I need to make extra sure... You die... I shall pray that... You entertain us... Goodbye... Maverick Hunters..." The voice said.
R looked around. He wanted to know what was threatening his team. The room started filling up with water coming from the walls. In it was electricity.
"Oh shi... Hurry, touching that water causes short circuit followed by death!" Chiba said.
R dashed towards the stairs. He looked up. They went from the center, and expanded to the walls very fast. In a split second, they were coated with ice, making it harder to walk. To top it all off, they crack and shatter easily. Chiba followed R, and Kazuo is close to death.
"KAZUO! RUN!" R yelled.

"I guess it's time to try something new!" She slammed down on it, the energy exploded into the radiance. Her special form, the Eclipse, emerged.
She started swiping her dual sabers at the ice, melting it away with the headshade effect. "Alright, boys! Follow in my tracks!!"

"Such techniques are... Useless here, and you should... Focus on running..." the voice was taunting.
The Water Dragon came right at them. R ran forward, and hip-checked Kazuo, and kicked Chiba, urging him to move.

I guess the only way out is up!

Kazuo was running. He could feel the power in his body disappearing. He was slowing down. Chiba was sounding like he has a voice changer stuck in his throat. Both were dying slowly. R pulled out his saver, and held it up to the ice. It melted slowly, and R was free. He looked back, and saw Kazuo moments away from death. Chiba sounded like crap. The Dragon hit the stairs in front of them, leaving a massive gap. R ran forward, and looked at the gap. Right now, they were as good as dead. In the area, wind started to spin in multiple directions, almost knocking R off. Water was being shot everywhere, and with it, death. Electricity attached to flying water was exactly what they needed. R looked down, and saw that they progressed at least 50 stories, and had a bit to go.

Shit! she thought, now realizing the worse danger as she had been encased in the ice!

"Hold on tight... This will be bumpy..." Kazuo said.
He yanked them both up. R held on to Juno tightly as to not accidentally drop her. Kazuo flew up, and then grabbed Chiba on the way up. The raging waters stormed up even faster, and Kazuo was having trouble flying. He stopped, and dropped everybody 7 stories from the top.
"Run... I can't fly anymore..." Kazuo said, panting.
Chiba picked him up, and carried him over his shoulder. Juno was covered in ice, so R ran up with her. He made it to around 2 stories before falling. There was just a hole in the ceiling for walking through, and a metal door began to close.

Damn it... My scimitars..
