Alice managed to stagger her way back to the warehouse, and as she did she felt the bones in her leg painfully snap back into place of their own accord. Causing her to cry out in pain. She also began to experience an intense burning in her chest as the bullet that struck her began to slowly and painfully slide out. The whole ordeal left her curled up on the sidewalk in the fetal position, gasping for breath she managed to pull herself back onto her feet, only to be knocked down again as the ground shook from the massive explosion. And at that moment one thing occurred to her. She needed to find Kevin and get the hell out of the area before the police or even, perhaps the military show up to contain the situation.
But there was also the issue of the mechanical man. Chances are he would be seeking revenge after what Alice had managed to do to him. Upon reaching the warehouse, Alice was relived to find Kevin was still alive and well. What was she even thinking!? Running off like she did was just reckless and stupid!
"Alice! Are you ok? Do you know what that explosion was?" Kevin asked, the worry clear in his voice.
"I'm fine, but I honestly have no clue what the hell that explosion was about. Personally? I think we need to get the hell out of here before someone shows up to seal off the area." Alice replied.
"Its not going to be the police or the military that end you. IT'S GOING TO BE ME!!!" Karl shouted as he dove from atop the warehouse shelves towards Alice, and as he landed in front of her, he drove his mechanical arm, which was in the shape of a pickaxe, straight through her gut, causing her to moan out in pain as she collapsed to the ground.

"YOU BASTARD! I'M GOING TO KILL YOU FOR THAT!!!" Kevin shouted as he began to blast Karl with both fire and frost.
"Is that the best you can do!?" Karl shouted in reply as he simply walked towards Kevin, the fire and frost blasts did absolutely nothing to him what so ever. As he got close to Kevin he took a swing at his neck, but Kevin managed to just barely dodge out of the way, causing Karl to collide with the shelving resulting in the shelf and its contents to tip over, upon tipping over, the shelves split apart and pipes rolled away in several directions, a vast majority of the shelves contents caught fire and the warehouse was soon flooded with smoke.
Karl looked around in an attempt to relocate his opponent, but Kevin had hid himself well in the resulting smoke, not only that but Kevin had also managed to arm himself with a section of pipe.
"Alright you son of bitch! This ends here!" Kevin shouted as he charged through the smoke, swinging his pipe indiscriminately at anything that may have looked vaguely like his opponent. This was a mistake which allowed Karl to grab a hold of him and throw him against the warehouses central support beam. Karl then ran off into the smoke, and from there he threw a massive iron crate in Kevin's direction.
And just as Kevin thought it was all over. Alice jumped through the air and collided with him, causing the pair to get out of the way of the projectile just in time. But the crate's collision had severely damaged the main support beam, and with fire and the damage, the whole place was not going to stand much longer.
Karl began throwing anything he could get his hands on at the two of them, and he was a good thrower. Alice got sliced by a broken bottle, and Kevin took a brick to the head. As well as a multitude of other injuries.
"So I guess I didn't finish the job with you." Karl said to Alice as he walkout out from the smoke. "No matter your both going to die here. I will make sure of that."
Alice, grab the kid and get the hell out of here! I got one last trick up my sleeve." Kevin panted in exhaustion as he snapped the fingers on both his hands and put them together in the shape of a gun, doing so combined both the fire and frost, turning it to a strange shade of white.
"Oh please, that didn't work the first time! What makes you think it will wor-" Karl's sentence was interrupted as Kevin fired the shot at him, and it was a direct hit that caused Karl to fly into the main support and knock out what was left of it.
Kevin managed to escape just before the main part of the building collapsed. he had no idea weather or not Karl was still inside during the collapse nor did he even care, he was just glad to have survived the ordeal. "Come on. We need to get out of here before some one shows up." Kevin said to Alice. Upon finishing his sentence, he collapsed to one knee. He had lost a fair amount of blood from the injuries he sustained in the battle, not to mention the fact that he was dizzy as hell from having taken that brick to the head.
"Your right but if you keep bleeding like that we wont make it far." Alice replied as she took off her sweatshirt and began to tear it to create makeshift bandages for Kevin. "How the hell can you even be walking around all banged up like that?" She asked
After Alice took a moment to wrap up Kevin's injuries. They began to make their way down the street towards a subway station. They could hear the sounds of sirens blaring in the distance.
"Something tells me things are going to get a hell of a lot worse." Kevin said as both he and Alice started to descend into the subway.
"Well lets hope to god they dont shut down the subway. There is no way in hell im walking home at this hour." Alice replied.
Luckily...the subway was open and they both managed to make it back to their neighborhood without a problem.
"I dont know how im going to explain all these injuries to my mother." Kevin said as the pair ascended form the subway station.
"Just tell them we got mugged and you bravely fought them off and defended me." Alice suggested.
"But that mugging attempt was a few days ago, and we both fought them off." Kevin replied.
"Yeah, but its close enough to the truth, no one said you couldn't omit details at the sake of you're own convenience." Alice retorted.
"Have I ever told you how clever you are sometimes?" Kevin said as he leaned in to hug Alice.
"I'm glad you think I am Kevin, I seriously am." Alice replied as she hugged him back.
"Goodnight." Kevin said as he released Alice.
"Goodnight." She replied.
They didn't know it. But just down the street, a Lone Figure watched them from the shadows. "Look's like we have a pair of love birds." The Lone Figure thought to itself. "I will just have to split them up later." It thought as it began to walk away.
