Calming the Storm (Part II)
Crow didn’t have to turn around to know what Dan was doing, he could sense the build-up of the martial artist’s powerful ki. However while Dan normally would be a fearsome opponent for the Gunslinger this was not the same Crow who had declared them the Gen Rescue Team, this was a Crow who was without his moral code and would not think twice about killing someone. With the speed of an eagle Crow easily side stepped the Pink Comet causing the basketball of destruction to miss and blow apart the ground sending shrapnel in all directions. Despite the noise and destruction of Dan’s attack the familiar click of Crow pulling the hammer back on the double barrel revolver, War Iron, was audible. “Attacking a Gunslinger from behind is equivalent to signing one’s death sentence Danny Boy.”
Crow’s voice was cold and distance his eyes were filled with a violent killing intent as he held a double barrel revolver to the back of one of his allies’ head. “I got to give you credit for your bravery though. You wanted to take me out but let me ask you something. However you ever met a wild beast you swore would never attack you…because I haven’t!” As Crow began to pull the trigger to essentially turn Dan’s head into a canoe he suddenly stopped himself He had heard that line before but where and why did it feel foreign to him it seemed like it came out of someone else’s mouth instead of his. One of Crow’s eyes shifted from crimson red to its normal blue and now he saw for the first time what he was doing with clear eyes.
All around him was destruction and carnage; in front of him was Dan, a man who Crow considered a possible ally. Worst of all Crow saw the gun in his hand aimed at a friend something that was practically forbidden to Gunslingers. “Oh my god…what am I doing?” The Gunslinger’s eyes slowly turned back to blue as the crimson lightning and the violent buzzing ceased. With the sudden release of the energy Crow body went limp and he arms dropped to his sides as he slumped down to this knees his head bowed in forgiveness. “Forgive me Dan. I’m sorry I don’t know what came over me. I was so filled with rage, hatred, and anger. I just wanted everything to burn, everything to be destroyed, everything to fall to ruin. I felt like I was a storm of war that would tear throw evil and leave nothing but destruction in my wake. I raised my gun to a friend and that is a taboo among the Gunslinger I apologize not just to you Dan but you as well Haruko. I don’t expect either of you to forgive at least not until after we finish our mission here.”
As Crow went to stand, the Gunslinger winced in agony his entire body was sore and trembling it seemed the power Red Storm of War had more adverse effects on Crow then he realized not only physically but mentally as well. He remembered everything he had done the violent fight against Uta, the words to both Haruko and Dan most importantly he nearly shooting Dan from behind. However there was two things that trouble Crow the most one being that deep down he felt like he secretly enjoyed the surplus of power. It troubled the Rail-gun that he may have enjoyed being that violent and destructive the rush of energy made him feel like he was riding on the edge of a lightning bolt. The other was the line he had said to Dan before he snapped out of his rage induced state. However you ever met a wild beast you swore would never attack you…because I haven’t! Crow swore he had heard that line before but when and where he wasn’t sure. However there seemed to be bigger fish to fry it seemed Alvin had caught someone from the underground chamber.
