    Ayshe's liar, Antville

    Sebastian gave it a long moment and then he knew the answer. Even if she lied there was truth in her lie. He had the power. When the Source had died time had stayed frozen. He had restarted it. So if he would die ... while stopping time ... or even if his powers failed him, like they did on the plane ...

    Sebastian looked down at the gun and realized how he was pretty much like this metal tool. A weapon. A terrible, life-ending weapon. He believed a woman who could see the future could not be allowed to exist? How about a man who could end the future?

    "I guess you are right. We won't know until it is too late." He looked up at the exotic woman. "Must be frightening for you. Someone who can see the future must be very nervous once he turns blind suddenly."

    He send her his saddest smile. "I don't wanna die. I do not wanna kill you. I want none of this. You know? I never did."

    Where were the days when changing the world was supposed to work through spraying fancy pics on walls?

    "You are probably the only person who understands. A bit. Power. Soon it will crawl into my head and corrupt me. Soon it will whisper to me to survive. But not yet. Right now I can still see the truth. I can trust nobody with this kind of power. Not even myself."

    Ayshe gently smiled. "Oh I fully understand how intoxicating this power is. Making fools like him dwarf compared to you." She pointed on the dead President. "And then you realize it made you a monster. We are not the solution, but another kind of problem."

    She nodded and thought about it for a moment. "For them."

    Now she leaned forward so far she looked like a cat ready to jump and her voice became almost a whisper.

    "We could abandon them. You know? What does either of us owe them? Hm?" She smiled. "They probably deserve to be ruled. They probably deserve to be controlled. All their weakness. All their mistakes. If Roland was their leader, why would we accept such leadership?"

    Ayshe looked at Sebastian and wondered how far he had ventured into the rabbithole.

    "You do not need Grafitti to change the world anymore. Just shape it as you wish." Ayshe whispered almost now. "But that is not you, is it? Morality dictates another path for Sebastian. Do the right thing? What is the right thing? Putting this gun to your mouth and pull the trigger?"

    The thought was terrifying because of the appeal. Free yourself from the burden and simply give in to the power.

    A poison for his mind and like all poisons that were truly dangerous, it was delicious.

    He could rule. He could change ... almost anything. What an idea. What a lie. His future self had tried and he had changed nothing, only killed a lot of people ... again and again.

    "You overestimate my morale stability." He laughed. "I have seen what I become."

    IC: Jane
    Lobby Rey Motel

    Jane kept her gun drawn head on a swivel as the sacred manager eked out room number. With a swift nod she started making her way taking note of the room numbers getting an idea of how the rundown motel was laid out, heading straight for 5012.

    "Stay close." she said to Kawin, words almost coming out like an order. He was the one thing keeping her alive, her good luck charm...Not that she ever believed in luck. She wanted him close, if only to give her yet another chance to take down this coward.

    Her movements as she made her way were focused and direct, not rushed but, with purpose, her eyes constantly scanning this man had gotten the better of her twice, she didn't want to give him the satisfaction of a hat trick. She was still beating herself up over her fumble in the manager's office. This whole mess could have ended there, she would have been free. Now she was running around a motel, chasing a ghost with only a nobody as her back up.

    This was going to get worse before it got better...and it was already as bad as it could be for her.

    She was wounded, running on adrenaline and her uncle was gone.

    The pain of that loss was still within her but, hidden under the layers of training, and hardening of her heart. She couldn't let it cloud her judgement, couldn't let it prevent her from doing her job.

    Uncle Owen would come back from the grave and kill her again if she let his loss affect her.

    In front of the counter, Rey. . .Take II

    The response had been shaky but clear. With a nod and toothy smile at the man he spoke once more in that same genial tone. "Thank you for your assistance." Lifting his hand from the money and leaving it on the counter he noted that the woman, Jane was already taking off like a shot. "Please find someplace safe to hide sir, the authorities should be here shortly." with a tight nod he began jogging after Jane who was barking out for him to stay close.

    Catching up with her he nodded toward the stairs, "So, up?" The fact that this woman was a bit of a badass meant that was feeling slightly better being near her, after all he was skilled with his weapon but from the way she was scarred with past wounds he knew without a doubt that she was experienced in a much more relevant manner then he was. Unfortunately the fact that everything was going to pieces was seeming par for the course. If nothing else it was starting to almost seem comfortable to him, although he doubted that she was feeling that way.

    "You don't have to die. You don't have to live. But either way you must accept what you have become. Something not human. Something beyond human. Something apart from it."

    She had that smile play around her lips. Finally she had found a weapon against which he was not immune. Finally she had found his weakness. The truth, the terrible unbearable reality of what he had become.

    The Rey, Fifth floor, New York

    Five levels up took time and Jane's wounds made it a painful ascend, but adrenaline pushed her forward with an uninjured but less trained Kawin right behind her. Having looped through his death several times within the last hour Kawin felt a certain dizziness and exhaustion, but his adrenaline did it's job to keep him functional, too.

    The climb took an eternity and when they opened the door and entered the floor they saw they were to late. Mulligan, the middle aged British Professor was lying on the floor, leaned against a wall and covered in blood from two stab wounds into his torso. He was still alive, but his eyes were wide open and his breath came out in quick hisses. From his attacker there was nothing to be seen. The look of Mulligan went to the two arrivals and as he recognized Kawin he nodded to the hotel room opposite of the wall he was leaning against.

    But it changed nothing. The choice was not binary. There was another way ...

    "I agree with you. I should not be allowed to exist. Something like me should not be allowed to exist." He nodded and returned her look. Sebastian gave her another sad smile. He understood the logic of her strategy. Showing him to alternatives and make it look as if there was no third. But there was another one.

    "Then again ... neither should you."

    Raising the gun Sebastian aimed for the head of the young woman and pulled the trigger. It was surprisingly easy. Frightening easy, actually.

    IC: Jane
    5th Floor, Rey Motel

    Each step hurt as she moved up the stairs she could see the blood staining her jacket catching in the lights in the stairwell. Every now and again it would bead and rundown, leaving a small blood drop on the stairs. It hurt but, she had to keep moving, her focus was overcoming the pain for the moment.

    She turned coming out of the stairwell finding an older man laying on the floor. Blood poured from knife wounds in his chest but, he was still hanging on with ragged breaths. His eyes turned to them then he nodded towards the hotel room across from him. This was clearly her target's work, he might still be in the room.

    Jane turned putting her finger to her lips, she didn't shush him that would make too much noise. She couldn't use the hand signals her uncle taught her. Kawin wouldn't know them, she would have to be more universal.

    She pointed at Kawin with her left index finger indicating him. Then mouthed.

    'Stay behind me.'

    She moved as quietly as she could watching her shadow, making sure she wouldn't cast one across the doorway as she approached. Her controlled breaths rung in her ears her heartbeat was loud in her head. This was her second chance, she could end this here.

    She came to a halt right at the door jam, unbroken. If she was healthy she would have kicked the door in and shot the room up. However the pain radiating out from her back told her that it would be a foolish move to try that. She's have to fight smart, or be more creative than she was normally.

    Her first thought was to shoot through the door, until she remembered she only had hollow points, not ideal for tearing through a door. With a moment's more thought she pointed to Kawin again and pointed to the bleeding body of their contact. She pantomimed turning a key in a lock, hoping that he would understand to search the body for the room key.

    Her senses were on high alert her shoulders tense ready for this man to show himself again. They knew each other's tricks it was time to see which came out on top.

    Ayshe
    Antville, Underground

    Her throne room had become her crypt. Ayshe understood a moment before her life ended, that she had lost. He had looked through her. His end did not mean she had to survive.

    Do it!

    Something inside of her was relieved. It was an end to the torture of knowing. It also was a defeat of a woman who had for a time ruled the world. Bested by another of her kind who was stronger in will and power.

    Do it!

    With her last breath she saw Sebastian raise the gun and no word escaped her mouth. He was becoming her. A God of the world of his creation in which those died he considered worth dying. An executioner of a divine will ... his own.

    Do it!

    Ayshe final thought was that she had found a worthy successor. Another vision, another way, but at his core he had become what she had been. Something beyond humanity. Something beyond this shady, flawed world. A man who defined reality. Exactly like she had been a woman defining reality. He would not kill himself. No. He would rule.

    Do it!

    And he pulled the trigger and without saying a world Ayshe vanished from the world, leaving it to it's new God.

    Hail to the King ...

    Death.
    Darkness.
    There it finally was.

    Once the time resumed endless minutes passed, before the door opened and a group of soldiers entered the room. Their rifles before them they aimed at the back of Sebastian and hesitated as they saw the dead bodies of Ayshe and the President of the United States. It was hard to say which shocked them more. Finally Thompson entered and sighed. "Get Andrews." He only hissed and took out his gun.

    "You did that?" He asked Sebastian and pressed his lips together until they became thin grey lines.

    The gun was loaded and the security lever was switched. Sebastian could almost hear it was pointed at his head.

    He sighed and did not turn around but looked at the Graffiti mimicking his style rather successfully. Not perfect, but it was okay. He had seen many LEGO forgeries in his years. A guy had sprayed like twenty in Barcelona so good, people in the internet still debated the authenticity.

    A week ago such thing had been a concern. They had been important.

    "She killed him, I killed her." He explained dryly. "But not because of him. Personal reasons."

    Sebastian closed his eyes and lay the gun down on the desk. The soldier was pointing the gun at his head. He could almost feel it, now.

    "Do you know who I am? If you do, you should be aware you should take the chance to kill me when you get it."

    The Colonel stood there for a long moment and considered his options. Having lost both his official and unofficial leader made him question the decision he had to make.

    "Stand down." The voice was firm and direct as it cut through the room. Matt Andrews was standing in the door and threw his most disgusted stare at Thompson. "You might still get out of this without being tried for treason, Colonel. Pull that trigger and I promise you will be the public face of this conspiracy."

    Thompson turned his head and then sighed and lowered his gun. Matt nodded.

    "Wise choice." He stepped over to Sebastian and gave the two bodies on the ground a long hard look. "I have warned him of false prophets, he just did not get it." Matt sighed and looked at Sebastian.

    "You sure about that?" Sebastian finally turned around. He looked at Matt and gave him a dry smile.

    "Pretty much. Yes." Matt answered, looked around and took the last seat he would not have to sit in someone's blood. "He killed your friends, did he?"

    "The boy. They killed Kyle. He did not deserve to die. Really." Sebastian looked at Matt. "Your President deserved to die for that. You know that, do you?"

    Matt shrugged and then nodded. "Maybe, yes. He was under a lot of pressure and I guess he ... broke. But he was a good man. Believe it or not."

    Sebastian did not believe it, but did not comment. Instead he asked a more pressing question.

    "Why do you want someone like me to live?" He dropped the gun and looked at Matt Andrews. The man looked back and smiled confused. "Isn't that obvious?" He asked.

    Sebastian shook his head. Matt looked at him and then pointed to Ayshe. "Because of people like her. You Mr. Stein, you have a conscience. I doubt many of your choices, but with all your powers you showed restraint. If someone like her shows up again, I prefer having you around." Matt said calmly. "And I might speak here for all of humanity."

    "Wasn't aware I got a fan in the White House." Sebastian smiled.

    "You haven't. I advised to kill you. But that was before her. That was before I saw how easily your kind makes our kind their puppet. I considered you to dangerous to be alive, as you probably do yourself right now. You tried to get killed there, didn't you?"

    Sebastian did not look at him, but considered his words. Finally he nodded.

    "That is why you have to stay alive. Try to hold on to that as long as you can. Because not everyone who gets power is that responsible with it. Stay with us, Mr. Klein."

    Sebastian looked at him and he smiled while his heart broke. The man was probably right. Running away was not an option. Death had been an escape plan.

    "Call me LEGO." He said and was gone.

    Headed up, Rey

    Taking a beat he sighed as he started following her up the stairs. Why did it have to be stairs? Of all the ways to show that he was not the same kind of hunter as her this was definitely the test that showed it fastest. She was like a tiger or a lion, ready to charge and go-go-go! Whereas after following her up halfway of the first flight all he wanted to do was stop and catch his breath. He was the kind of man that, well he wasn't exactly buff but. . .well he wasn't exactly. He was. . .

    He was. . .well rounded. Well padded. He wasn't fat, but the fact that his job was answering phones had definitely taken it's toll, the fact that he hunted was that he had learned to work with and around his lack of athletics. He could power through for a long time at a slow and steady pace, he could hide in a blind for hours on end without making a sound, but he was not one of them Yank yahoos that went running over a mountain hoping to startle a moose and kill it before it reacted! He was one that saw where he thought the moose would come, set up a trap and waited. Make a few calls, rustle the brush if the season was right for it and wait.

    No, as he crested the last set of stairs to see Jane start hand signaling him to watch her back he wished he could say he wasn't breathing heavy and sweating. Especially as she was leaving a trail of blood and the man they were coming to meet seemed to be bleeding out on the floor in front of them.

    Seeing her motion him to the bleeding body he nodded and practically flopped down beside the man on his side as he began patting the man with his free hand as his other aimed the gun behind himself. Looking at the professors wounds he looked at the man sadly, wishing there was something that he could do for him, but so far his power only seemed to affect himself and controlling how it worked for others did not seem to do anything. Yet.

    Looking at her he shook his head. He didn't know what do as he watched this man, their only lead slowly die in front of them.

    Antville Installation, Near Antville

    The floor he had moved himself to had been empty when he entered. Now it was filled with ... what he assumed were bodies. Human bodies so twisted and reduced in their form they were barely more than uneven balls of flesh and shattered bones. They still were warm.

    The alarm sounded. A high sound that repeated itself every two seconds. He heard steps of soldiers and in the neighboring corridor he saw an iron door of several centimeters thickness crushed and lying on the floor. Something had broken out there, obviously.

    The Rey, Fifth floor, New York

    He appeared right at the moment Kawin leaned down to the dying Professor. Right behind him he switched into existence and rammed his knife deeply into the spine of the Canadian civilian. A sharp pain ran through Kawin's body and he collapsed. The wound did not kill him though. He just felt the feeling from his body below his shoulders fade away.

    Then the man turned to Jane who was probably turning towards him and grinned. "Kill me or kill him?" He hissed. The choice was obvious. A reset would make him alive again. A simple shot now would kill him, but it would only last if they did not reset. Which would leave Kawin with the injury.

    Kawin, having the same choice, still had his gun in his hand.

    Ready to attack, the Man could not stop his grin as he grabbed the knife in Kawin's back and probably prepared to do his trick again. His face looked sweaty, his eyes were feverish. The jumping obviously took a lot of strength.
