*** If you didn't read thelast story, DO NOT READ THIS ONE!!!! It is
very important that you know what is happening. I will not reveal what
is to happen in the next couple of stories!!! So keep up ^_^ ***
The morning doesn't come soon enough for the
Thundercats. The base that they just found as home lay half in ruins.
The Thundercats burried under the rubble, life seems gone. As time
progressing a shard of wall flies into the air. Standing strong from
the wreckage is Panthro. He groans as he removes the rest of the
wreckage from Tygres's body. She blinks her eyes slightly, adjusting to
the still dark of the morning. Panthro reaches his hand for her.
Tygres grabs a hold and stands slowly. "What happened?" Tygres said as
she whipped dirt from her eyes. "It seems that Cheetara was right"
Panthro said as he looked around. "What happened to everyone?" Tygres
said as she looked around. No sign of any of her friends. Panthro
walked down from the pile of wreckage that they stood on. Just as he
reached the bottom, a brash of rubble flew to one side. Tygres
suprised, leaped into the air, landing on the ground. As they dust
cleared, Cheetara stood holding Tygra up. "Where is he!" Cheetara said
in a rage. Just as she and Tygra walked out, Wily Kit followed. She
fell to her knees coughing. Another explosion hit as Lion-o emerged
from the fallen base. Catlani soon surfaced after him. "Is everyone
alright!" Lion-o called out as he tried to adjust his eyes. "No, we
don't know where Kat, Pumyra, Bengali, Jadakiss and Apollo are!" Wily
Her fear was growing with every second they were
missing. Just as her worries grew, Wily Kat emerged from a pile of
fallen bricks. "Luckily I put that forcefeild on huh?" Wily Kat said in
humor. Wily Kit ran to him and hugged him. "Ah Kit, get off me" Wily
Kat said while struggling with his sister. As Wily Kat got his sister
off of him, another explosion shattered the fallen rubble. Rising from
the ashes was Bengali and Pumyra, helping Jadakiss and Apollo out.
"Where did he go!" Bengali said with as much rage as Cheetara. Pumyra
brushed dirt from her hair and looked at Bengali. She felt his pain,
his anger, his heartbreak. Bengali looked around at the fallen area.
"Where are the cubs?" Bengali said. Snarfina, Snarf and Snarfer
approached the enraged Thundercats. "They are fine" Snarfina said. "An
ambulance is on the way snarf snarf" Snarf said. The Thundercats
gathered to check out the serious injuries. "Apollo, Jadakiss, Tygres
and Wily Kit should be checked out. We will go from there" Lion-o said.
As the Thundercats headed to the hospital, each one thought about one
Bengali sat patiently in a cushioned chair in the
emergency waiting room. He wondered how everyone was. Next to him sat
Cheetara. Her eyes were fixated else where. She stared at the lgihts,
trying to avoid anymore visions that may hit her. She wish none of this
happened, but most of all she wished that she didn't know it was going
to happen. Sleeping next to her was Wily Kat. he couldn't handle all
the pressure of knowing Lynx-o was the second person to betray the
Thundercats. Cheetara looked away to the otherside of the room. There
stood Tygra, pondering thoughts that she didn't want to invade. Tygra
knew that Cheetara was looking at him, but he didn't want to look at
her. He knew that soon enough a doctor would walk through the doors,
telling everyone what was wrong. Tygra gazed at Panthro sitting on the
otherside of Bengali. He wondered if Panthro was thinking about Lynx-o
or thinking about Tygres like he was.
Before Tygra could get his answer a doctor walked
through the doors. "Hello everyone" he said as he looked around at the
room. "Uhm, I have a report of everyone's condition for you. It seems
that Wily Kit has just a slight pain in her wrist and she will be ready
to go. As for Jadakiss, she is fine, so minor bruises. Uhm, Apollo
seems to be fine, but Tygres is another story. From what I ehar she is
pregnant" the doctor said. The last statement caught Tygra and
Panthro's ears and attention. "Yes she is" Cheetara said. "Well I have
the results of who the father of her child is" the doctor said. Tygra's
eyebrow arched, while Panthro's eyes widened. "Well the father of her
child is Panthro" the doctor said with a smile. "Congrats!" Lion-o said
as he walked through the door with Catlani and Jadakiss. "Yes,
congratulations" Bengali said with cheer. Cheetara was going to
congrtaulate Panthro, but yet she felt a strong tension in the air. She
gazed at Tygra and felt his thoughts through his eyes. He was not happy
with the news he had just heard. This brought pain to Cheetara's heart.
"As for Pumyra, she is fine. She is doing rather well
since her pregnancy Bengali" the doctor said. That made Bengali happy
and with a smile he watched Pumyra walk through the door. "Where's
Tygres?" Panthro said as he stood. Soon enough Tygres and Apollo came
into the room. "Right here" Tygres said as she ran to Panthro. he
grabbed her and hugged her with all his strength. "I'm soooo happy!"
Panthro said with cheer. Tygres smiled, bet yet her eyes were fixated
on Tygra. "Why he smiling?" Tygres thought to herself. "Alright
people, let's save the good cheers for later" Lion-o said. All the
Thundercats and their friends turned their attention to Lion-o. "We
have to find Mumm-ra or Lynx-o or whatever he is. We need to figure
where he is and what he is up to" Lion-o said. "I think there would be
a good place to start" Wily Kat said as he pointed to the monitor.
The Thundercats looked at the screen as a reporter told
the escalating story of the rampage of sentinels on Thundera. "That's
right. These gigantic robots are terrorizing Thundera, mainly around
Thundera City! They are tearing down buildings and destroying
everything in their way. It seems their main source is the palace, in
which we believe an evil being is controlling them" the reporter said.
The Thundercats awed as they saw the giant sentinels. "They are WAY
bigger then the ones we've fought before!" Wily Kit said. "Oh no, they
have the city surrounded" Tygres said as she clinged to Panthro. "We
have to stop them" Lion-o said. "Let's move people. Those who can move
faster on ground, head for Alistar Complex and the rest will fly in the
Sky Cat" Lion-o said. "LET'S GO!" Panthro said.
Each Thundercats headed for the Alistar building.
Cheetara ran in a blaze, with Pumyra not too far behind. Wily Kit and
Wily Kat rode quickly on their Arial Blazers. They were glad that
Panthro built these new surf boards in time for this unexpected battle.
Tygres stood at the hospital with Panthro. "Are you sure you're strong
enough to do this teleport?" Panthro questioned Tygres. "I am sure"
Tygres said with a smile. She pulled a spear from her pouch and twisted
it in her hands. "Get ready!" Tygres said as she threw the spear in
front of her. The spear created a portal. "Let's go!" Panthro said as
they both ran into the portal. The portal transported them to the roof
of the Alistar building, where Cheetara stood. She was gazing over the
side, watching sentinels move everywhere. "Took you long enough"
Cheetara said. Her words had no emotions, but yet they were strong
enough to cut right to the heart.
Soon enough the Sky Cat landed as Pumyra arrived.
Apollo, Lion-o, Catlani, Jadakiss, Tygra and Bengali walked off of the
Sky Cat. Wily Kit and Wily Kat came in a blaze to the top of the roof.
"The sentinels are headed all over" Wily Kit said as she ran towards
Lion-o. "They say that Catsy is missing!" Wily Kat said with anger.
Lion-o looked at him with the same face. "Lion-o, they got your
sister!" Wily Kat said with more rage. "We will get her back" Lion-o
said. "It would seem as if Lynx-o has planned this very well" Cheetara
said. "Lynx-o didn't do this, Mumm-ra did" Pumyra said. Bengali
glanced at all the Thundercats. Their unspoken words were still felt by
each one of them.
The dawn brightens as dark turns into light. Sentinels
over come the city, by land, by sea and by air. Their invasion begins
swiftly, making sure their is no exit anywhere from Thundera City. The
swiftness and strength amazes all of the Thundercats. A extraviganza of
power consumes the city as sentinels break down buildings, terrorized
people and destroy all hope. No one dares to raise a hand to them, no
can save any chance the Thundercats can hope for. But yet they watch
from uptop of the Alistar Building, waiting for their one chance to stop
the menace that is reaching Thundera. "I see that Lynx-o has found his
soldiers" Apollo said s he watched the sentinels devour his home. "I
guess we came just too late" Apollo said. "We all had our jobs and were
unprepared for this assulat" Lion-o said. "Yet our hopes are in vain.
It seems Lynx-o..." Lion-o's words were cut. "The Onslught, call him
that. he is no longer Lynx-o, nor working on Lynx-o's intent" Wily Kat
said. "You're right. Lynx-o was never the kind to cause harm on
anyone. But with each moment we waste, it brings us closer to our own
fated doom. And with each moment, Lynx-o slowly loses what is him and
becomes more Mumm-ra" Lion-o said. They all looked over the edge to see
the city being destroyed.
"We supsect that Shadow or somebody on Mumm-ra's side
has something to do with Lynx-o's lose of his sanity" Panthro said.
"No, this is Lynx-o, I know" Bengali said. He gripped Pumyra's hand as
he looked at the flames that shattered the park that Pumyra and Bengali
once walked their children in. "I am disappointed we are unable to
recieve help from Jaga or even Bengali and Pumyra's children like the
last time" Panthro said. "But they can't interfer this time. When a
Thundercat breaks the Code of Honor, they can not help, nor stop it"
Lion-o said. "But yet they are here" Cheetara said. "What is it now?"
Tygres said with a hint of hatred in her voice. "Stop Tygres. Last
time Cheetara was right. She probably saved you and your baby from an
untimely death!" Tygra said. He walked over to Cheetara and placed his
arm around her shoulder. "Tell us Cheetara" he said. Cheetara's hopes
were brought up by Tygra's kindness. "Destiny and White are here. I
don't know how, but I sense their presence" Cheetara said. "We must
find them then" Bengali said. He knew that he too sensed a familar
eriness in the air.
"Whatever happens here, it means no less to us" Jadakiss
said as she walked away from the edge. "Presumably if Desint and White
are here, then Mumm-ra is no doubt using them once again in his plot.
We can not only watch and let Mumm-ra kidnap Lynx-o, White, Destiny and
Catsy. We have to stop this. They must all have something in common
with each other" Lion-o said. "No one knows if or if not that is
Mumm-ra inside of the palace. If he is this new Onslaught that we have
to fear, then fear will not go without battle!" Catlani said. "Yeah,
but how? We don't know where to start" Wily Kit said. "Why not with
finding a way to stop the sentinels" Pumyra said as she sat on the edge
of the roof. "She's right. Then we have to find the Onslaught himself"
Tygra said. "Fine, we split up then. Bengali, you go with Pumyra, Kit,
Kat, Panthro, Apollo and Jadakiss as a power force" Lion-o said.
Bengali agreed with him. "Tygra, Cheetara, Tygres, Catlani and me will
try to find a way to find Mumm-ra and see what his plans are" Lion-o
said. "Do take care of Tygres Tygra, I don't want anything happening to
her" Panthro said with a cold tone. "I have never done otherwise!"
Tygra said with a fury. "No need to get all hot under collar, I am just
advising you!" Panthro said. "If I need advising, I'll go to someone
with half a brain to do so" Tygra said. Cheetara looked at both men
with dispare. As they approached each other, they found their bodies
paralized to movement. "Panthro! Tygra! Stop it!" Cheetara said. She
now had full control over their bodies. "We don't have time to bicker
or waste anymore time!" she said with anger. "We have to work together
to save Thundera!" Cheetara said as she pulled her control over them off
"The carnage, the horror. It shouldn't be this way.
Why must it be that now Mumm-ra or Onslught finds it time to destroy
Thundera" Apollo said. Jadakiss comforted him with a hug. "He is a
lost soul that will never find his way back. All we can do is hope that
we can stop him once again" Jadakiss said. Apollo looked into her
emerald eyes and felt a since of faith. He kissed her and held her in
his arms. "We have to egt moving..." she said. Jadakiss did not want
to lose this moment. "I wish things could be that way for me and
Cheetara" Tygra thought to hisself as he looked at Jadakiss and Apollo.
"Alright. With Bengali's team covering the streets and
my team taking everything else, we have to move fast. Okay people!
We're burning light ehre, let's go!" Lion-o said. His team headed for
the Sky Cat as they prepared to leave. There was only little time for
good byes between the Thundercats and friends. They all felt as if they
did this once too often, but this time could be the one were it counts.
As the Sky Cat lifted off from the roof, the others prepared to leave.
"Okay, let's go!" Bengali said. Wily Kit and Wily Kat grabbed their
Arial Blazers and jetted off into the air. Bengali looked at Pumyra as
she pulled an orb from her pouch. Panthro looked at the ground and then
decided it was time to move out. Jadakiss pulled two fans from her back
and looked at Apollo as he pulled out his orbs. "Shall we?" Catlani
said as she pulled her bow from her back. "Yes" Pumyra said as she
began to swing her sling in the air. The sling caused a portal open out
of nowhere. The Thundercats walked percautiously in, no one looking
back to what they were leaving behind.
"Let us go!" Catsy screamed as she looked at the blank
area she stood in. There laying on the ground was Destiny and White,
unconscious to what was happening. "You don't really want to leave, do
you Catsy?" a voice said. Catsy felt fear for the first time since her
father's death. Soon Lynx-o emerged from the clouded place. "Do you?"
Lynx-o said, setting fear in her heart. "Why are you doing this?" Catsy
said with haste. "Because, you are like me. And so are they" Lynx-o
said as he pointed to White and Destiny. "We are all beings that have
powers that can not be controlled by others" Lynx-o said. "But I don't
want to be here" Catsy said as she back away from Lynx-o. Lion-o's
younger sister was no longer feeling the comfort she needed. I thought
you were my friend?! Aren't you a Thundercat?" Catsy questioned. "Well
that I was. But with this new power, I can be more! So won't you help
me? Help us so that we can control all of Thundera. You won't live in
the shadows of your brother anymore" Lynx-o said. His words brought
terror to her heart. "What are you talking about?" Catsy said. She had
no where else to go. "Don't think I don't know how you feel. For so
long your father took care of you, but then he found his dear missing
son. From there, it was Lion-o all the time and no Princess Catsy"
Lynx-o taunted her with his words. "NO!" Catsy said as tears began to
stream down her face. "Ah, good. Now help me to create my new
fortress. Concentrate now, use that anger" Lynx-o said as he got to her
The Sky Cat cut across the skies swiftly. It's
passengers, four worried people. They headed for their homebase, which
had just recently been torn apart by The Onslaught. "We're close to
getting to the base" Lion-o said. "What's the stats Tygra?" Lion-o said
as he put the Sky Cat on it's auto-pilot system. "Well from what I see
here on the monitor, Mumm-ra has just about sealed anyways out of
Thundera City. Plus from what Lynx-o knows, Destiny knows and White
knows, we can all expect a short battle. They all know our secrets and
weakness. Tjis would benifit Mumm-ra highly" Tygra said. He began to
type into his system different places to search from Mumm-ra. His main
objective, the Thundercats new base. "What about you Tygres?" Lion-o
said as he turned around in his chair. "Well from what I see, the
others are making little damage against the new sentinels systems.
Also, it seems that there has been no official sings of anyone seeing
the Onslaught" Tygres said. She looked at Tygra who was too bust typing
to even look at her. Lion-o glanced at Cheetara. She was glaring out
the window, trying to see what was left of Thundera City. "What about
you Cheetara? Any signs yet" Lion-o said. Cheetara tried once again to
feel for Lynx-o's mind, but no avail. "Nothing. Lynx-o seems to now
have some psonic ability. I can reach him" Cheetara said with
disappointment. "I know this is hitting all of us hard, but we have to
concentrate on our mission" Lion-o said. Cheetara tried once again to
pick up Lynx-o, but once again failed.
The Thundercats scattered the town, each one taking on
the new sentinels. Wily Kat and Wily Kit fought sentinels side-by-side.
"These guys are tough" Wily Kat said as he threw another pellet at a
sentinel. The force of the pellet took down ther sentinel, who crashed
upon a building. "Oops!" Wily Kat said. "Kat, try not to detroy the
city while fighting these guys!" Wily Kit said. "I'm heading up!" Wily
Kat said as he hoped on his Arial Blazer. Wily Kit watched as he flew
circles around one of the sentinels. "Time to use my new power while
Kat has this one distracted" Wily Kit through as she pulled four pellets
from her side. She threw them into the air and they all formed a circle
around ehr. "Three, two, one!" she said as she leaped away. Wily Kat
took that as a sign and hurried away from the sentinel. The pellets
exploded with a tremendous impact. The sentinel crumbled and all of
it's part fell to the streets.
Panthro fought brutly with his nunchuks. Tearing heads
off of sentinels as he leaped from roof to roof. He looked down to see
Catlani battling sentinels from the ground. She was his rescue when too
many sentinels got near. She fired her arrows with grace as she
followed Panthro's path. He smiled at her and began his attack once
again. They both ahd one thing in common, a fighting spirit.
Bengali pulled his hammer from his side and fired
several lasers at a sentinel. He accomplished his duty, he wanted the
sentinels attention. He began a swift run away from the sentinel, the
sentinel following him. As Bengali got to his destination, he let
Pumyra finish the rest. Pumyra pulled three orbs from her pouch and
swung them in the air with her sling. The crackling sounds of her sling
as it swung caught the sentinels attention. "PSONIC BUTTERFLY KISS!"
Pumyra said with intenseness. She let the orbs go with a blaze and the
orbs shattered against the sentinels head. The orbs caused several
explosions, totalling the sentinel.
Apollo and Jadakiss worked justa s well as Bengali and
Pumyra. Apollo used his shadow orbs to throw the sentinel off balance,
while Jadakiss used her fans to do away with the sentinels. Apollo ran
over to Jadakiss as they finished off the last sentinel in their sector.
"We make a good pair" Jadakiss said as she looked at the wrecked
sentinel. "Yes we do. You never cease to amaze me Jae" Apollo said.
"It makes me feel comfortable that I can depend on you to watch my back"
Apollo said with a smile. Just as his smile grew, another sentinel
appeared from out of the shadows. Apollo turned around, not expecting
to see A force of magnetism rip the sentinel to peices. Apollo looked
to see Bengali standing to the side. "Thanks!" he said with a smile.
Bengali smiled back and walked over to them. Wily Kat and Wily Kit came
flying in on their space boards. Following them was Catlani and
Panthro. "Where's Pumyra?" Apollo said as he saw no sing of her. Soon
a flash blinded them as Pumyra appeared from a portal. "Always there
huh Pumy?" Bengali said. Pumyra smiled at him. "We have finished off
most of the sentinels" Panthro said. "I am afraid most isn't all
though" Catlani said. "It's not over, look!" Wily Kat said as he
pointed to a nearby park.
It starts as a dawning day with the sun rising, then it
flares to a super nova. The bright light startles and blinds the
Thundercats. After it fades, it reveals a starking citadel. It shadows
over all of Thundera. It was the last bright light that Thundera ever
saw. As they looked, they saw what they come to know as The Onslaught
standing upon the citadel's edge. "Insuperior beings of Thundera, hear
the words of The Onslaught! From this day forward, the people of
Thundera will no longer hold control over Thundera! The ultimate beings
as me and others shall control Thundera!" Mumm-ra said. He was no in
control. Everyone listened to his words as if they were the last words
they were to ehar. "People of Thundera..." Mumm-ra said as he watched
the Thundercats. "What's he doing!" Wily Kit said. They rushed towards
the citadel. "FEEL MY MIGHTY HAND!" Mumm-ra said as he let loose a
furry of power on Thundera City. The shockwave hit like a comet. With
a small gesture, The Onslaught blankets Thundera City with a paralyzing
blast of uncontroable energy. An electromagentic pulse so feirce as to
cause the ground to come up from the streets, cqause sparks and
explosions across the city, shatter buildings, destroy all power,
destroy forcefeilds, destroys hope and send all of the city into it's
The Sky Cat's controls malfunction due to the new power.
"What the?" Tygra said as sparks shatter everywhere. "No, all our
work!" Tygres says as she backs away from her computer. Cheetara tried
to control all of the sparks with her powers, but she can't. "I can't
get the fail safe unti going, we're out of control!" Lion-o says as the
jet skids from right to left in the sky. "We aer going to free fall!"
Tygres says as she grabs utno a handle. "If anyone hs to say any "I
love you's", say them now!" Lion-o says as the jet falls closer and
closer to the ground.
The city stood in ruins. The grounds were ripped up,
filled with piling rubble. A shattered peice of building is lifted up
by Panthro's strength and Bengali's wind control. "Is everyone
alright?" bengalisa id as he uses all of his might to throw the building
aside. "Yeah! What was that?" Wily Kat said as he stands. "It seems
to be an electromagnetic wave pulse. Strong enough to level the city.
And strong enough to make this city an island from the rest of Thundera"
Bengali said. "It appears that The Onslaught has made his opening
statement" bengali said. Ctalani looks around at the city, barely
anything stands. The Thundercats try and recover quickly. The hands of
Mumm-ra have just begun to move over Thundera. The Onslaught
