The Kaiju World War

By Will Hamilton

Scifi / Action

Prologue

The sky roared with a force to shake the heavens. Space Godzilla floated above the central mountain of Skull Island, absorbing all the energy the island had to offer. Below him, the human inhabitants scurried away to their huts hoping to escape the carnage. The giant kaiju looked down at them with contempt, how pathetic they looked. His loyal followers gazed up at him with awe and wonder. Little did they suspect that they too would be killed in the blast that was about to take place, unless of course they left the island.

Godzilla gazed up at his brother in wonder. A strange, red light was coming from him, one that filled him with both awe and terror. His beloved Manda was beside him and she laid her head against his side and Godzilla looked down at the kaiju who would have been his mate. He gently stroked her head with his hand and he gave her a rather toothy smile. They touched noses to take comfort in the love they share.

Godzilla looks up and his two best friends Anguirus and Rodan are making their way over to him with his sister Biollante bringing up the rear.

"Godzilla, what's going on?" asked Anguirus with clear terror in his voice

I don't know my friend," Godzilla responded. "I just don't know." He gazed up at his rebellious brother again. The power he was gathering seemed to be getting stronger. Godzilla felt Manda's snake-like coils wrap around him tightly and he looked down at her again. He tried to reassure her with his gaze but she knew him too well to be fooled.

"I love you Godzilla," she said with absolute conviction.

"As do I my love," he responded.

Suddenly there was a gush of air and Mothra descended on their little group. Her eyes told Godzilla what she would say before she said it. "Space Godzilla is taking energy from the island itself to make it explode!"

Godzilla nodded his head in acknowledgment. "Is there any way to stop it?" he asked. "Or at the very least escape it?"

"None. We would have to be at least a day away from here to survive. Not only that but the explosion will kill him too. I believe he is unaware of that though."

Facing the inevitable like a true king Godzilla turned to his right hand man Anguirus. "Ang, call the others. We will be together as we die, united as we always have been."

"As you wish." Anguirus turned to the north and let out a bellow that caught the attention of all kaiju. Those loyal to the true king made their way to him quickly, each with terror on their faces. The others, those in league with Space Godzilla, when they saw that their enemies were doing nothing to stop the catastrophe panicked. They ran for the shores, hoping to escape. All that is except Zilla. He made his way over with Komodithrax, his one true love. Godzilla welcomed his childhood friend over, the one who had remained loyal to his brother, hoping to change his ways.

"My friends, Mothra tells me that Space Godzilla intends to destroy Skull Island, with us along with it. It is impossible for us to flee for the blast will cover everything withing a days journey of here. Today, we will die together, showing my brother that he will never truly defeat us." With these solemn words the monsters each lowered their heads in acceptance of their fate. They gathered together with Godzilla and Manda in the center.

As Godzilla and his friends congregated together, the Shobijin, the messengers of the kaiju, flew to one of the jutting points of the mountain. Once they alighted there, they began to sing. Their voices carried all over the island drawing the attention of all below. A great, golden light shown from their bodies as their magic took affect.

Space Godzilla heard the singing of the Shobijin and laughed. They could not stop what he was doing, no one could. His victory was assured. Suddenly, he felt his life leaving him and he panicked. The power he was wielding was taking his energy too! Space Godzilla tried to pull back but could not and he realized that he was doomed to this fate. Suddenly a golden light began to engulf his body.

Godzilla and his allies took joy in the voices of the Shobijin. It brought happiness to them and a warmth unlike any other. As Godzilla looked at the monsters that had remained loyal to him, he noticed a golden light covering their bodies. Soon, it reached him and Manda and he felt oddly secure in what was happening. He placed his muzzle on Manda's forehead, closed his eyes, and knew no more.

The island began to explode around them and yet the Shobijin smiled. They watched as the spirits of the kaiju, all the kaiju flew off into the distance. They gazed into each others eyes and reached for the others hand. Though they would die, they knew that the power of the Shobijin would be past on to another. With that thought in mind Skull Island exploded.
