Beach

Hayate raised two of his palms in the air, and caught the punch. However, even with two hands, this hit was still enough to whack the helmet at least slightly, and Hayate stumbled back a bit. It was a very muted impact, but it still shook Hayate.

Flames started coming out of his gloves, however.

Charlotte wasn't sure how to feel about their odds. On one hand, it was good to see that she wasn't the only one who had volunteered. THAT would have been extremely awkward. At the same time... There was a feeling in the back of her mind that she was essentially saying that she was okay with the possibility of her dying. She shook her head. No, of course, that wouldn't happen. She was too important to serve as mere cannon fodder, and she would help end the war with her own skills. She didn't have any delusions of sacrificing herself or 'dying heroically'. She was going to live.

"My, my... It looks like we have quite the group! I'm sure all of this will go swimmingly. ... As soon as we have a plan."

Justice HQ

Kenshin chuckled nervously at Ray's enthusiasm. "Well...so long as there's some energy being put to good use..." Then, he turned to Raphael. "I'm unsure. As worried as I am for Hayate...Gohra might not be a significant enough threat for us to focus all our energy on him. He's not likely to shift focus from a one-on-one duel, given his personality...and we need to focus on a plan to stop this missile hreat, first and foremost. We...may just have to trust Hayate on this one."

He turned towards Wakana. "That said, I want a visual of the battle. We don't know the circumstances, and I don't want to risk shifting attention unless we know Hayate has it handled. Any progress on picking up video feed of the beach, yet, Waka...?"

Wakana suddenly went silent.

"...Waka...?"

"Y-You..." She looked over to Kenshin and the other Riders with a shocked expression on her face. "You might want to see this."

Wakana turned the computer monitor towards the Riders. It didn't show Hayate and Gohra's battle as one might expect, thought. Instead....

----

"Attention...humans."

Image


The face of Dexis Zebanon, head scientist of the Kalcion Armada, was on the screen of the Justice HQ. But not just there. The image of the man was seen across the city of Kyoto, on nearly every Kalcion HoverCam floating about the battlefield. He even appeared on a number of large screens on the sides of city buildings. His face and his message were everywhere.

"You have been a thorn in the sides of our people for far too long. You and your supposed heroes, the soldiers that refer to themselves as the Justice Riders. I do hope you have placed good faith in those soldiers, because their failure now means your extermination. I am not a patient enough man to delay my message further, however. This is a challenge for the Justice Riders. Your city will be destroyed by the almighty Kalcion, should you fail to overcome this challenge."

The people still desperately trying to escape the city began to panic even more as the words of Dexis Zebanon echoed through the streets.

"We have just commenced the firing sequence on an array of our planets mightiest air-born missiles, humans. Should they impact your city, it will surely be destroyed...and those people still within it shall surely perish. But do not fret. Your situation is not entirely devoid of hope, Justice Riders. But these missiles are designed to destroy technology even of our own caliber. And it seems the only technology you have with a hope to stop this strike...is that of the mechs you scrapped together from that which you stole from us. I do hope your species s evolved enough to understand my implications, humans."

Dexis rose his head in the video, to glare down at the camera with...a look of disdain and disgust that seemed almost uncharacteristic of the cold man he had come across as.

"Fight and perish or let your people die like vermin. Do not disappoint me now, Justice Riders. The launch sequence is now beginning."

----

Justice HQ

"D-Dammit...!"

The video message paused on the monitor, locking it to that screen. Kenshin slammed his fist onto the table.

"They're already commencing the attack, then...dammit, our early intel barely made a difference!"

"Kenshin, get a hold of yourself!" Wakana shouted back. "And stop swearing in front of Rin! Look, I know it looks bad, but there's something about that message that felt really off to me." She put her finger to her temple. "Think about it. He just gave us a warning for when the attack is going to happen. And furthermore, he broadcast it - most likely to more than just the computer his daughter bugged, given his language. What does that all mean, then?"

GiGi chimed in. "T-That means he broadcast it to the entire city, doesn't it?"

"More than that," Razzmatazz added. "Those weird floaty TVs looked like they were broadcasting a news channel. I'd bet you anything that footage is making rounds on their home planet, too. They're showboating."

"Correct!" Wakana said with a snap. "He's likely doing it for show, but it's odd that he'd show that to us, as well, instead of just keeping us in the dark. And he acted like this was news to us - he was dimly lit and acting all intimidating, so I bet he expects us to be cowering in our boots at this revelation. What does that mean?"

"It means," Kenshin replied, "that he doesn't know info was leaked."

Wakana snapped again, now with a smirk. "Correct. It's looking like our little insider was telling the truth. They're probably showing off to their people to make the military look all badass like that spy said, and they're probably none the wiser that there's a spy on our side. We don't have an exact plan in place yet, sure, but I don't think we're at a wash yet. He said he's firing now, but I'm willing to bet we have a couple minutes to prep while his little vlog is circulating on the news." She slammed her hands on the desk. "It's now or never!"

Kenshin nodded. "Right. We only have these precious few minutes to work on a plan..." He thought silently for a moment. "Everyone, get yourself and any able-bodied Riders to a Zord!"

GiGi tried to interject. "B-But Kenshin, that's exactly what-"

"We need to move immediately," Kenshin interrupted. "I'm not saying we should give up and fall for their plot, but there's not much we can doo outside of the Zords right now. He's expecting us to panic, but we already know what he's going to do, so we can get an upper hand on him. We'll just have to work through the rest of our plan once we're properly armed." He grit his teeth. "It's a shaky plan, I know. Like I said, I'm not the best at this. But we're low on options, and we have to do what we can. If we're down to our last options...we'll have to at least minimalize the casualties as best as we can."

He gestured to the rest of the Riders again. "Go! Head to the Zord Hangars and get out of here ASAP! I'll meet you on the outside! Our backs may be against the wall, but we'll kick and struggle to the very end!"

----

The Beach

Gohra chuckled as he kept pushing his fist against Hayate's grip. "Beh heh heh...Catch and dodge all you can, and strike as hard as you will, but you know I won't stop that easily! Even as I stare death in the eyes, I feel more alive than ever right now! I'm not going to stop fighting until the last second...!"

As the two stood there, the sound of an elderly voice echoed from the distance. The sound of the video message was just barely loud enough to be heard as a faint whisper from that beach. Gohra, still pushing against his opponent, took a moment to listen to the noise. "Heh...coming from the city, sounds like. I guess Old Man Zebanon is finally starting to push his plan forward. Figured he'd be behind this scheme...the man's as dishonorable as they come. He'd have this planet wiped clean by now if Prince Malchior hadn't pushed against it for so long...Oh well. It does not matter now!"

Gohra suddenly shoved back and jumped away from Hayate, returning to a combat prep stance. "So the countdown to the sunset apocalypse has nearly reached its climax!" he shouted. He glanced back towards the city, and spotted something...a lone HoverCam, glaring at the two of them, at the edge of the beach. "Little spy, eh...?" He chuckled again, ignoring it before turning back towards Hayate. "We've got five minutes tops! So tell me, Hayate Kawaguchi..." He grinned. "How fun are these last five minutes going to be?"

Justice HQ - Medical Bay:

Soul laid on one of the beds, still unconscious from her injuries and dehydration. Her breathing was faint, barely noticeable, but there. The blood had been cleaned up for the most part, though she was bruised all over, and still quite pale from her lack of water. Ray, still in his Rider outfit minus his helmet, was pacing the room, seemingly not having much else to do. Every now and again he stopped to sit in the chair right beside Soul and start tapping his foot at speeds comparable to that of an itchy dog. This lasted an average of about three minutes before he got up and start pacing again. A Nurse occasionally walked by, and every time, Ray asked her for another glass of water. She looked at the collection growing by Soul's side for a moment before exchanging a glare with him. Then she remembered this would be the fourth time this guy lectured her about the Amethyst suit, and complied. Ray sat down again, and Soul stirred. Slowly, and with a groan, her eyes opened.

"Mornin', sunshine." Ray greeted Soul with... not as much conviction as he would've liked. "So. Learn anything today?" His question was met with another groan, though it was unclear to him whether it was through exasperation or through physical pain.

"...You again..."

"Yep. Gotcha a few presents. Hope you enjoy." Ray gestured toward the multitude of water glasses sitting on the side of the bed opposite of him. Soul slowly turned her head, adjusted her position on the bed, and grabbed the one closest to her. She didn't say a word to him, too busy hydrating herself again. "Heh. Figured I got you roped into this mess, I should probably do my best to help you along..."

Soul, glass still to her lips, shot him a glare that practically froze him in place.

"Okay, okay. You still hate me for that. And I'm not trying to say you're not justified for that. You definitely are. It's just... times were rough and even rougher now, and we needed everyone we could get. Even if it was a little... against your will. But listen here. I think Big Crimson just issued an order. It sounds like if you want to quit, hand in your Morpher, and we'll escort you out, no questions asked."

Soul nearly spit out her water upon hearing that revelation. This was the first bit of good news she'd heard since being forced into that lavender spandex outfit! She wouldn't have to deal with any of... this! Not anymore. Almost in a heartbeat, Soul started fumbling for her Morpher necklace... "Wait. That sounds a little too good to be true."

"Yeeeaaahhh... here's the catch. A lot of people have already become Ex-Riders, from the looks of things. So we're more short-handed than ever. It seems like we're down to me, Big Crimson, Green, Purple, Carmine, Platinum, Amber, and Transparent. And maybe you." Ray usually would've used names, but he wasn't sure Soul was super acquainted with any of those people. He paused for a few seconds, removing the sunglasses from his face. "So yeah. Not a lot of people there, and we still need all the people we can get..."

"So... I'm going to die either way?"

"...Kinda sounds that way, doesn't it? Keep going and die in battle, or leave and die because we don't have enough people. I'm sure I don't need to sugarcoat it. There's no way of knowing, and that's why this is such a big decision for you. And honestly, if it weren't for me, you wouldn't even be in this little Catch 22. I'm realizing now that drafting someone like you in here was one of the biggest mistakes I've made in my entire life. Especially someone young like you... How old did you say you were again?"

Soul shot him another glare before giving him her terse response. "...Sixteen..."

Ray gave a somber, empty chuckle. "Yeeeeaaaahhhh... I shouldn't have done this. I could never have made a choice like this at sixteen. No matter what anyone says, and no matter what you decide, you're strong. If you decide you want out, I'd completely understand. We can go on like we never met each other. Though if you decide to keep with us, and if we make it through, I'll do everything in my power to make everything up to you. I've wronged you in a way that, honestly, I'm not sure I can repay. But dang it, I'm gonna try anyway... Because...!"

Ray put his shades back on his face and grinned, his teeth sparkling in the fluorescent lighting of the Medical Bay. "Because that's what cool guys do!"

"Attention... humans."

As if on cue, a message started ringing through the hallways. Faintly, but Ray could still hear it. "Hmm. Sounds like that's my cue to leave. Mull it over, drink plenty, and while you're down here in the medbay, be sure to take the most amazing nap you've ever had, you got that?!" Ray put his helmet back on, and rushed outside.

Justice HQ - Main Hall:

Ray rushed out, already decked out in his fuchsia outfit. "Alright, chief! I'm here! Amethyst is all nice and in the medbay! What do we-" It seemed like a plan had already come together... or at least, the start of one. And it involved the Zords! Sweet! He did have one, after all! SWEET! If he was finally going to get to pilot one of those, he didn't need to be told twice!

"Zord Hangar?! You got it! Come on! You all heard the boss! Let's MOVE OUT!" Ray, enthusiastic as ever, dashed out toward the Zord Hangar.

"... And so it begins. I suppose there's no time to call for a mid-show distraction, is there? Every player needs to fulfill their roles now..." Charlotte's words weren't serious, but it was clear that her tone was. She was strangely calm despite everything that was happening. Maybe the very real possibility that she could die just hadn't dawned on her yet. Or maybe it had dawned on her and she was just incapable of taking the situation with the proper amount of seriousness. Either way, it was obvious that she needed to help out. The chance to run had passed, and besides, running away would have felt anti-climactic right now. Not when she had something to do.

So. The Zord Hangar it was.

"Well, I certainly don't want to fall behind. Best be on my way!" Charlotte then started running towards the Zord Hangar, very aware of the fact that she didn't have that much more time to spend on quips and non-sequiturs.

Raphael couldn't help but wince at Charlotte's words. This is not the time for such worthless remar-- Charlotte? Raphael blinked and looked again. There she was. The liability was one of those who had remained. On the one hand, he was somewhat impressed. He would have expected her to have fled by now and gone on some kind of motorcycle rampage. On the other... he knew it would have been better if she had.

Before he could inner monologue on this, Kenshin snatched Raphael's attention away. Right, prioritie-- And then the video. By this point, the ever-changing demands on his attention had dulled his capacity for emotional response. It was all instinct, and his instincts were to be alert and to process this information when things were a bit less hectic. So when Wakana and Kenshin came to the conclusion that Prim had to have been trustworthy, Raphael simply nodded along. I didn't expect that, but I guess their logic holds. Had he more time, he would have at least raised the possibility of this being an elaborate trap, but had he more time, his mind would not be in quite the place it was.

On Kenshin's command, Raphael went off to the Zord Hangar, his mind (for a brief moment) perhaps unscrambled enough to actually process some of this. Or perhaps just ready to bounce into the next person.

Ami nods, going over scenarios in her head. She moved over to her zord, and entered the cockpit. As she moved outside with it, she then awaited further orders. She could be clever, but now seemed like a time to wait to see what Kenshin had planned.

The Beach

Hayate Kawaguchi didn't really pay attention to the strange announcement. He breathed with a certain ferocity, almost like a panicked rodent that had bit back at a critical moment, staying alive for just another second. If you took off his visor, you'd certainly see a glazed stare, one that was fixated on Gohra's general position, but wasn't necessarily looking AT the huge hulking figure. His mind was hazy. It was like static piled upon static, and there wasn't really any room for thinking.

Gohra spoke, but it passed through his mind, and was garbled slowly as it sunk into his conscious thought. Hayate wasn't sure if he really even understood the question, or if it was even a question.

A voice in the back of his head, trying to call him back to his senses, said, "You're gonna die if you don't wake up!" But Hayate didn't really know what being awake meant, here. Any explanation was eaten up by the static.

So he just charged forward at Gohra without even a grunt.

Justice HQ - Zord Hangar

As many Riders as were available began running into their Zords. Kenshin settled into the cockpit of the Phoenizord, awkwardly readjusting his new prosthetic leg in his seat. It seemed to be connecting slowly to his nervous system, as he could move his toes, and could feel the fabric of his pants against it. Yet it felt awkward in a difficult to comprehend way - it was something like the feeling of getting a cap over a root canal just after leaving the dentist's office. It fits into place and does the job, but the subtle differences feel incredibly wrong to maneuver around. He hoped it would grow easier to understand with time, though he couldn't help but wonder if this is how GiGi feels in her own body.

He was thrown off by GiGi's voice over the radio.

"Platinum Ramzord, present!" she proclaimed from her cockpit.

"Razzmatazz Molezord, locked and loaded," added the Razzmatazz Rider.

"Oh...!"

"Eh? There a problem with my Zord, Platinum?"

"O-Oh, no, no! I just...wasn't..."

"What, ya didn't realize Razzmatazz is important enough for a Zord, eh?! Is that it?!"

"A-Anyway!" GiGi shifted focus away from her colleague's irritation. "We're in the Zords, and the missiles should be firing any second now. What's the plan, Crimson, sir?"

Kenshin let out a sigh. "You're not gonna like it. But it's the best I've got..." Kenshin quickly morphed into his Rider gear, with less flair than usual - he was glad to know the outfit regenerated the mising leg and boot lost fighting Malchior, but couldn't dwell on it. He adjusted his radio to address all the Riders in the hangar.

"Listen up, everyone! This isn't going to be easy. There's less of us than before now, and I don't think we'll survive this scratch-free. But I think we've got a chance to make it through alive here. The Kalcion are firing missiles at us with the expectation to take out as many of our Zords as they can in one strike. That said, I think we may have a stronger chance of survival if we combine into as many functioning Megazords as we can. There'll be less targets for them in theory, but there's certain techniques that require the combinations to unlock. I think if we unload our arsenal all at once, we may be able to minimize the losses while also getting rid of all the missiles. I can't promise every Megazord will be safe - frankly, I expect to lose some still, and encourage evacuation the moment things look dicey for you, but this is our best shot! If we can spare a few Megazords and reload their arsenals quickly, that should be enough to take on their Titan forms! I'm sorry this plan isn't perfect...but it's the best we got!"

The ceiling above the Zord Hangar opened up, parting the school pool at ground level to let the Zords out.

"Our time is dwindling, so it's time to move out! Justice Riders! Let's rocket!"

Kenshin pushed the thrust on his Phoenizord, and began the charge to lead the Zords into the sky above.

----

The Beach

In the distance, lights twinkled against the orange sky. The Kalcion missiles had begun to break the atmosphere - soon, they'd fly over that beach, bringing forth destruction.

Yet the fight raged on amidst the sands of that beach.

Gohra grinned as Hayate charged him. "An excellent response, Hayate Kawaguchi!"

The behemoth slammed on boot forth, into the sand, and anchored himself by putting his hands to the floor. He waited a brief moment for Hayate to approach. Once the Rider was within a meter's distance or so, Gohra sprung himself forward in retaliation. He did not lift his arms to strike or grapple, however. Instead, he aimed his skull straight for his opponent's, rocketing forth into a powerful head clash, gritting his teeth in prep for the pain.

Unlike so many moments in this scene, Hayate did not intercept Gohra, or try to run. In fact, he ran straight for Gohra's head, but only ducked at the last second. With only a moment to lose, he thought to himself, "Can you buff nose muscles? Like, can you make your nose really strong?"

He didn't get an answer to this, and it didn't matter. He swung an uppercut, straight at Gohra's nose.

Justice HQ - Med Bay

Distorted images festered inside Kiko's brain. The confrontation with Malchior replayed endlessly, in an infinite loop of tragic possibilities; however, the scene always began and ended the same. There was Kiko, who was flying through the sky confidently searching for any lives to save during the evacuation. Eventually, he'd spot the monstrous Malchior, prepared to kill a pile of passed out riders. What followed could only be described as a one sided fight. No matter what Kiko tried, the titan of a prince stood stoic and unfazed. Once Malchior had enough, he would be consumed with a demonic aura and swing his massive ax down onto the helpless riders... at least that is what should have happened. In order to prevent the young lives from being stolen away, a certain dojo master intercepted the blow. For those whose lives were saved, they might consider this a miracle. For Kiko, he witnessed a nightmare. The horrific sight of his beloved master being struck down iterated inside the dark palace of the Delicate Winter Melon Rider's mind. The never-ending tidal wave of blood swallowed the incapacitated rider into a world of endless despair. He cried and pleaded for his master's fate to change. This wasn't what he signed up for. If he knew this path would seal Master Moshi's fate, he never would have joined the riders. He could easily blame Malchior or the young riders for setting the scene, but he knew that it was his fault for dragging a non-rider into the conflict. Every time the tragedy unfolded in front of him, the deeper into self-loathing Kiko sunk....

The Crimson Rider's words echoed over and over... "Your master died to keep the rest of you alive, didn't he? Then don't just sit there, finish the job! Bring yourself and your comrades to the medical bay, ASAP!"...

Kiko knew he was right. Of course that's why Master Moshi died. The fact that it was Kiko's own incompetence prevented him from fighting the onslaught of dark thoughts racing through his fragile mind. Though, he couldn't bring himself to hate the Crimson Rider for not letting him die. The Crimson Rider was a true symbol of justice, unlike the fraud that Kiko strived to be. The only one worthy of hate, worthy of scorn, was Kiko himself...


Kiko's eyes shot wide open. Initially confused, the memories of before he passed out suddenly resurfaced. Tears quietly fell from his eyes. "What am I supposed to do know... can I even call myself a rider?"

The Beach

Gohra could feel his nose crack and break with the impact of Hayate's fist. Black blood spurt into the air, and all of the warrior's forward momentum for the headbutt went straight up with the uppercut. For such a delinquent means of attack, it might have been the strike to hurt most thus far.

Not letting a shift in momentum go to waste, however, Gohra swiftly rose his arms above him and clasped his hands together. Once gravity was back in his favor, he hammered his arms down toward Hayate's head for an overhead smash.

The Beach

Unfortunately for Gohra, that period of recoil was enough for Hayate to get back into a viable position. He was still short on time, but this time, Hayate could react, and not be immediately destroyed... or, well, he would be, if he wasn't barely conscious. Truth be told, Hayate's perception of reality was fading in and out at uncomfortably close intervals. It wasn't really his fault, he had gotten hit a fair bit over the last few days. By this same guy. His exhaustion was finally getting to him.

Hayate, however, reacted just fast enough to criss-cross his arms about his head, and take off the brunt of the impact. And his morpher, sitting right on top, took the whole hit. It wasn't destroyed, but everything inside it was rendered unusable. And just like that, Hayate's suit disappeared, and his regular student uniform was left.

His head was also throbbing, because he was jolted back to consciousness just by the strength of Gohra's hit.

The Beach

Gohra backed away from Hayate upon breaking the Purple Morpher. He was breathing hard...was he finally wearing himself out in a battle? Or was it more accurate to say Hayate was wearing him out? He rubbed his broken nose with the back of his hand, smearing black blood across his knuckles. He looked down at it, then back to Hayate, now clearly able to see the boy's face. Then, he turned towards the horizon.

"Those missiles are fast approaching now..." The glimmers in the distance were getting closer. Still indistinguishable, but growing clearer every passing second. "Four minutes. That is about how much longer until their arrival."

Gohra stood up straight, still showing difficulty in his breathing.

"You've fought honorably, Hayate Kawaguchi, but I will hold nothing against you to fold now. Your combat suit is destroyed, and though you are strong...are you sure your body is powerful enough to battle me bare?" His expression was deathly serious - a stern mix of conviction, and genuine concern. "We stand now upon a nuclear sunset - do you have the strength to stare at its colors any longer?"

The Beach

"Fold...?" Hayate echoed, his breathing regularized a bit as he stared at Gohra, with wide eyes. Unlike a few seconds before, he was staring at Gohra. Hayate slipped his jacket off, and tossed it into the sand. It wouldn't matter anyway, these last few minutes could be the end, after all.

He started to unbutton his button-up, "I'll be honest with you, Gohra-san, I came here... Because, idunno, somewhere in my heart, there's a part of me that respects you. We're oddly friendly with each other, obviously... But there's a level where I see your belief in me, in my fighting abilities, even when I'm using unfair advantages. And I feel, happy." Hayate said, pulling out the last button, and sliding the button-up off. There was one last shirt, a sleeveless t-shirt.

"And maybe that's kinda weird. Maybe it's weird to feel happy, when your enemy has pride in you... But you know what?" Hayate said, and then ripped his t-shirt off, revealing a slightly muscular torso. He threw the torn remains into the sand, and stared down Gohra.

And then he smiled, with peace in his eyes. Also maybe some dizziness.

"I'LL GLADLY FIGHT A FIGHT I COULD NEVER WIN, JUST FOR A CHANCE TO HEAR PRIDE IN YOUR VOICE!" Hayate screamed, as loud as any "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" he had ever screamed.
