BioniOni - Episode 2We've got an awful lot of running to do- An Awful Lot Of Running, Chameleon Circuit~~~Kopaka looked at his feet when he was sure that he was safe and well away from that monster. A key glistened just a few feet away from him, so he picked it up and pocketed it. He wandered around the house, looking for somewhere that would open up. The whole house was decorated the same. It was rather creepy. Eventually, a door on the fourth floor opened after meeting the key. The first thing that caught his eye was the creature stuck in between the wall and a bookcase. It had a big face with rows of blunt teeth and seemed pretty down.“Oh, a squid,” said Kopaka, with only a hint of surprise in his voice. He attempted to move the bookcase to get the poor creature out, but it wouldn’t budge. “I’m sorry, but I can’t get you out, but maybe Onua can.”He turned away and left the room. Maybe Onua could, if he would come out. Maybe Kopaka would have to drag the larger one out. He smirked as he left for the larger Toa.~~~When Kopaka got back to Onua, he was a little confused at the now iron door of the wardrobe.“Onua? Are you in there?” he called. “There’s a squid trapped in a room on the fourth floor. I feel rather sorry for it. Do you think you can get it out?”The door slid open and Onua looked up from the floor. “Okay, but I have a favour to ask. I lost my quake breakers when I was running away. If I had them, I would be able to go out without feeling so… scared…”“Oh! I found them a while ago!” grinned Kopaka. This new, cowardly Onua had to come out now! The Toa of Ice passed them to Onua, who was now standing. Unfortunately, he had another excuse.“Er, Kopaka…”He sighed and rolled his eyes. “Yes?”“I’m actually sort of hungry…”Kopaka whacked the Toa of Earth around the head with the blunt edge of one of his swords. “How in Mata Nui’s name do you expect me to find food in this forsaken place?”They both stared at each other. “Please, Kopaka? I don’t have much strength.”“Fine, I’ll find you something to eat. Any preferences, like crab salad? The chef that we bought along to this trip makes an excellent roast kikinalo leg!”Onua scowled. “Anything.”After standing there for a few more seconds, Onua asked, “Have you found Matau or Lewa yet?”“No,” replied Kopaka.“Oh.”Kopaka walked away to find food, and heard Onua shut the door behind him. Just what was he doing in there?~~~Soon, Kopaka found himself in the bathroom again. He had made an interesting discovery about the toilet.It was also a slot machine.Although the Toa found it unhygienic to be buying food from a toilet, it was food and it didn’t taste weird or anything. After attempting to absorb the energy out of one onigiri, he discovered that it didn’t work. Tentatively, he bought his hands that cupped the rice ball to his mouth and nibbled. The flavour exploded in his mouth and he gasped when he had chewed and swallowed. This new way of getting nutrition was strange, but amazing! He bought more of the food from the toilet and left the room.~~~The corridor was pitch black. Kopaka couldn’t see a thing. He fumbled around for the switch, but he could swear that he could hear deep breathing rasping down his neck. When he switched the light on, it flickered for a second, seeming to be confused with whether it wanted to turn on or not.Then it attacked.Kopaka leaped back, pulling out his Ice Blades as he did so. “Not again!”He blasted the figure made of shadow with a bolt of ice, but it shrugged it off. He needed more power! The creature blasted shadow at him, but he managed to dodge. However, it still singed the side of his face, and it felt horrible. He retaliated with charging his weapons with his elemental energy and running straight at the misty but solid figure. It worked, but the Toa’s energy was still depleting slowly but steadily. He kept on hitting out at it, and each time he grew weaker. However, the thing gave out first. It disappeared in a flash of nothing, and Kopaka fell to his knees where it once stood. He pulled out an origiri and began eating it. Once he felt better, he saw a key in front of him. Since they were useful, he took it.Lewa was still alone, he guessed. That was rather worrying. He had to look for the Toa of Air. And Matau, too.~~~He sat in the corner of the bedroom. It was large and eerie. This was not how a Toa-hero should behave! He was strong and amazing and heroic! Nokama wouldn’t like it very much if he was this scared! He had to be awesome! Even though he now had weird, organic skin and weak green and navy cloth armour.The door clicked as someone unlocked it. Matau screamed like a girl, until he saw who it was.“Oh, hello-hi, Kopaka. I was just having an awesome Toa-hero tea party! Care to join?”The Toa of Ice narrowed his eyes. “Are you okay? Have you seen anything?”Matau nodded vigorously. “Yep! It was massive and scary and shadowy! Bad-dark… We all saw it! Me, Onua and Lewa!”“I know. I’ve seen it too.”“And now I’m right-here and I don’t think-know what’s going to soon-happen! Can we quick-leave now?”“Calm down!” cried Kopaka angrily. “Do you need to eat?”Matau peered down at his stomach. It rumbled. Kopaka took in the other Toa’s new appearance. He had green, scruffy hair that was tied back in a short ponytail. His red eyes were large and his skin was a couple of shades darker than Kopaka’s. A green t-shirt and dark blue jeans covered his slim body that hid muscles. His boots were large and grey, with laces that matched his top.“You too, huh?”“Evidently. Now, answer my question.”Red eyes met blue. Both were stony, but Matau’s stifled mirth. “Probably.”Kopaka threw an onigiri at Matau’s head. The airhead ate it quickly. “Yum!” he grinned stupidly.“Have you seen Lewa?” asked Kopaka sharply.Matau shook his head, his hair hitting his face. “No. He just quick-ran. Really, really, quick-ran.”There was silence for a second, during which Kopaka heard footsteps. Matau opened his mouth, only to be quickly shushed by the Toa of Ice. “If those swords are not just for flight,” he murmured almost silently, “I would suggest that you pull them out and make them useful for once!”Both of them stood there, as still as an ice cube in the middle of an unmoving void. Soon, the sounds faded and they relaxed.“You think-feel it’s gone?” asked Matau, shivering slightly. Kopaka nodded.“But it’ll be back. Let’s get moving. Lewa is still missing.”~~~They walked out of the room. The lights flickered.“Mata Nui!” cried Matau, clutching onto Kopaka. “I hate this!”The alien stared at them with a look of pure evil, and attacked. Kopaka and Matau both dodged at the same time. Matau struck first with his aero slicers, while Kopaka attempted to use his elemental powers. A thin beam of ice shot out and froze the stomach of the beast. The Toa of Air then stabbed the beast in the back. Kopaka then span and kicked the beast in the ribs and then the legs. The lights flickered out again.Again, the monster was gone.Kopaka and Matau strode quickly to he room where Onua was hiding. “This is the Great Earth Fortress,” said Kopaka sarcastically.“Cool,” said Matau, unimpressed. “Hey, dirt-brain! The awesome Toa-hero, me, has arrived!”“Matau?” said Onua through the wardrobe door, perplexed. “What- where’s Lewa?”“No thought-idea!” grinned Matau. “Now get out, or is Lewa going to be missing forever?”Onua came out of the wardrobe quietly. “Can we come back here at some point?”“HA HA HA!” laughed Matau. “Do you like tight-narrow spaces or something, dirt-head?”Onua glared at him. “I’m a Toa of Earth, you moron. I’m usually found underground, in narrow tunnels.”“Oh,” Kopaka said. “Shall we leave now?”“Okay,” agreed Matau. “Let’s just wish-hope there are no monsters.”~~~“Are you sure you can pull-get it out, Onua?” asked Matau, referring to the squid in the wall.He grunted in reply. “I’m sorry; I can’t do it with my bare hands. I’ll need some sort of tool.”“Are you sure that won’t pain-hurt it?”Kopaka sighed. “It’s a big house. I’ll go and find something.”The only reply was an “Nnngh-AHHH!” from Onua, and an “Awesome face,” from Matau.Kopaka left the room. “All this for a little squid.”~~~Review
