“Lockwood California. You think you’re really safe from me?” A man asked. He was dressed completely in black. Black jeans, a black hooded jacket over his black shirt and a long black overcoat. His black hair was cut short. He had a small beard growing. He was sitting in an abandoned warehouse. Behind him was a truck. In front of him was a table with several computers on it. “For years now, you all have thought that the danger has passed. But I am about to bring in a new age, an age of chaos.”
The man was by himself as he spoke but he didn’t let that bother him. He had been alone for the last ten years. No one to go to, no one to talk to. He had been planning for this for a long time and he wasn’t about to let something like being by himself get in the way.
As he typed on the central computer in front of him, numbers came together and two images appeared. The man couldn’t help but smile. “There you are my new friends.” He said. He pressed the “enter” button.
The computer screen to the right of the one that he was using lit up and beamed out of it two creatures. One was a pink humanoid-looking creature. She had bright yellow eyes and two large pink bumps on the top of her head. She had a pink scarf on. She reminded the man of bubble gum. The man wasn’t surprised by that. He had intentionally done that.
The other one looked like a man. He was wearing black clothes. He had spikes on his shoulder. He had a silver helmet on. It matched the knee-high silver boots he was wearing. His jacket was long and torn. It sort of looked like a cape. He had a jagged sword in his left hand.
The two looked at the man in black. “Who are you?” The man demanded, pointing his jagged sword at the man in black.
The man in black smiled wickedly. “For now, you may refer to me as…The Benefactor.” He replied before he gestured to the two. “You are Stygian and Bubble Gumstar. My creations and my new loyal warriors.” He told them as he stood up and walked up to them.
“What are we doing here?” Bubble Gumstar asked, looking around. “This place looks like a dump.” She looked at the Benefactor. “No offense.” She added quickly. She knew that if the Benefactor had created them, he could quickly destroy them.
The Benefactor walked over to the window and looked outside at the city. “For ten years, the humans have been living in peace.” He told them. “No monster attacks. No Wrenches, no Undead Warriors and no evil Knights.” He thought about it as he spoke. The memories of the old battles came back to him. He shook his head. It might have happened ten years ago but it was still fresh in his mind. It was why he was doing this.
The Benefactor turned around and faced his creations. “I want to take that peace away from them though.” He explained. “I want to make them fear me. I want to rule the city!” He started laughing.
Stygian and Bubble Gumstar looked at each other. Taking over the city sounded like a good idea to them. “What do you need from us?” Stygian asked. There had to be a reason why the Benefactor had created them before taking over the city.
The Benefactor stopped laughing. “There is someone in the city who is in my way.” He replied. “Ten years ago, he was a Knight, Knight Poison. He’s living here and works at a school.”
Stygian raised an eyebrow under his helmet. “You want us to destroy him?” He asked.
The Benefactor nodded. “I know for a fact that he has his Knight Changer still.” He told the two. “It’s what gives him his power. He is a threat to my plans. The first step is to get rid of him.”
Bubble Gumstar laughed. “Consider him gone Benefactor.” She told the Benefactor. She looked at Stygian. “Come on Stygie.” She laughed as she said that.
Stygian groaned. “Don’t ever call me that again.” He told Bubble Gumstar.
The Benefactor watched the two walk out of the warehouse. He couldn’t help but smile. It was nice to see a plan come together. He would soon have his old enemy out of the way.
