Chapter 4) Confrontation
Runa runs towards the center of the station, where there is a large white circle on the blackish-purple ground. He stands in the center and puts his right hand forwards. He is then engulfed in a white light and is sent down to the toroidal planet of Chlodean. When he arrives in a matter of seconds, he starts flying at near Mach speed, searching the planet for Coron. When he finds him, he is making a deal with a mortal. "Coron!" he yells to him. Coron was a winged, skeletal being of red and silver, slightly taller than Runa, horns jutted forwards from his head, curving upwards slightly near the end, and a tail came from his back, with one large spike and two small ones coming off the end. Coron looks up to see Runa, as does the mortal, although he looks confused. As Runa lands, Coron starts talking. "Ah, Runa, my comrade! How good to see you! How was your trip to...where even did you go? The mortal looks at Coron as if he was crazy and runs off.
"It was good, and I don't even know, it was too strange of a place to describe, but that's besides the point. I came to ask you a question.
"And what would that be?" Coron inquires, his almost demonic looking tail flicking.
"I've heard that you're trying to overthrow Necronis, to lead the station yourself. Is this true?"
"Why yes, it is, and I was hoping you'd help."
Runa looked at him surprised. "No, I won't help you! Why would you do such a thing?!"
Coron sighed. "I don't know why I figured you you'd understand." he says, spite in his voice. You're so young, you weren't here before Necronis became Death."
Runa stepped back. "What's so bad about him that you want to kill him?!"
"His method." Coron was getting increasingly more agitated. "When Necronis has still the Bringer of Death, the former Death, Mortama, had much different methods to the position. Mortama has a much more active Death, yet when Necronis came along, he didn't like this. From what I've heard, he'd been planning to to overthrow Mortama long before I arrived, but he only rebelled pretty soon after I became Dealer. Everyone was behind him, except for me, I stayed at Mortama's side as he was defeated and Necronis took his place as Death. Necronis is much to passive for my liking, waiting for people to age to Death to bring them over, instead of killing all of them himself, or using his army to do so." Coron monologued as he stretched out. Then, red energy formed in his hands. "If you won't help me, then I guess I'll have to make sure you don't stop me." The energy formed into a pair of arm blade weapons, then the energy broke away to reveal the weapons are of metal-like materials. "I wish I didn't have to do this."
