Act V

The Algebra Lands:
Division District


Our group of heroes is still preparing for the upcoming battle ahead. Four and Zero are devising a plan at Zeroís Evil Headquarters, hidden in the depths of Fraction Forest.

Zero: (typing on computer) So tell me, Four, what do those knuckleheads have planned for me?

Four: (looking through maps and blue prints) Last I heard, they were getting a Divisor-Inator or something.

Zero: A Divisor-Inator!? Are you sure?

Four: Pretty sure. Why, is that-- Oh, it can kill you, right?

Zero: No, Four, itís going to turn me into a unicorn-- YES, IT CAN KILL ME.

Four: That sucks.

Zero: Four, youíre my partner now. Donít you think you should care about my fate?

Four: (sighs) Of course I care, Zero. But, what can I possibly do? If it kills you, well, thereís not really anything that can change that, now is there?

Zero: I expected better of you, Four. Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe, just maybe, we should steal the Divisor-Inator from them?

Four: Of course it has, Zero. But look at our odds. Thereís two of us and eight of them.

Zero: You underestimate our strength, Four. Not only that, but did I ever say there was only the two of us? I am no idiot. I have allies. Theyíll fetch the Divisor-Inator for us. I already sent them on their mission.

Four: So why are we sitting here, talking about it?

Zero: I had originally sent them to distract the others, but once you told me about their weapon, I sent them a message, telling them to acquire it. Honestly, Four, stop being so slow. Itís the twenty-first century, for Calculatorís sake.

Four: I donít believe in Calculator.

Zero: Whatever. Not my point. Is something wrong with you today? You seem a bit off.

Four: No. I mean. Well. Iíve just been thinking about a lot of things lately, Zero. Iíll be fine; donít worry.

Zero: Letís get one thing straight here, okay? Iím not your friend. I donít really care what is troubling you. Weíre allies. Partners. We help each other with this mission, we split the profits. Either youíre gonna put in your share of work, or youíre out of here. Understand?

Four: Donít belittle me, Zero. I am no fool. It seems you have forgotten that. I do not seek a friendship; not with you nor anyone else. I am in this completely for my own benefit. Do you understand?

Zero: I understand everything, Four. And donít act so high and mighty; youíre in no position to call the shots right now. In fact, youíre being of no use at the moment.

Four: (rolls eyes) Well what should I do about that?

Zero: I would tell you to distract the hero squad, but since my minions are already on thatÖ Oh, yes. I have some weapons I need you to pick up for me. Theyíre at this address. (hands Four a piece of paper with writing scribbled on it)

Four: (unfolds paper; reads) Iíve never heard of this place.

Zero: Itís a secret weapon storage unit. They hold extremely illegal weapons there. Thatís why it is very important no one sees that paper, understand? There are directions on it, as you can see. Donít screw this up.

Four: Thank you for the encouragement. I guess Iíll be on my way, then.

Four begins journey to weapon storage unit.

At our heroesí headquarters:

Seven: Now that we are well rested and full of energy, it is time to set out to find Zero, and end this chaos once and for all.

Nine: There has to be some other way, Seven. Two wrongs donít make a right.

Seven: I understand that, Nine, but it must be done. We must treat Zero as we would treat any other criminal.

Nine: But heís not a criminal!

Six: (puts hand on Nineís shoulder) Nine, please. You know what we have to do.

Nine: But itís not fair!

Seven: Maybe not, but it is what must be done. I am sorry, Nine.

Three: Cheer up, Nine. This will all be over soon enough.

Two: Besides, Z--

A group of four numbers dressed in black cloaks appeared.

Seventy-Five: Hand us the Divisor-Inator. (extends mutated hand)

Seven: I beg your pardon? Who are you?

Eighty-Three: Thatís not important. Hand us the weapon. Now.

Seven: I donít think so.

Ninety-Two: We ainít playiní! (grabs Eight and holds gun up to Eightís head) Give us the Divisor-Inator or his head will be blown off!

Seven: Let Eight go!

Thirty-Nine: Give us the weapon.

Eight: Donít worry about me, Seven. Save Mathematics.

Five: Donít be so stupid, Eight!

Everyone goes silent and looks at Five, stunned.

Two: Well, Iíll beÖ

One: HeÖ He can talk?

Six: Way to go, Five!

Ninety-Two: Whatíchu gonna do about it, pipsqueak?

Eight: (eyes wide, tears surfacing) FiveÖ Donít.

Five: No, Eight! We wonít lose you. (turns to Seven) Give it to them. Itís not worth it.

Seven: (looks at Five, then Eight, then Ninety-Two) I suppose youíre right.

Two: (nudges One) Follow my lead?

One: You know it.

Seven begins to hand over the Divisor-Inator when Two and One collide with Ninety-Two, and the rest of the gang attacks the other minions. Eight is freed from Ninety-Twoís grasp and a bang is heard.

Three: Are you okay!?

At the weapon storage unit:

Four: (walking up to door; holds up paper and reads sign) This must be the place. (opens door) Err, hello?

Twenty-Six: Hey. What do you want?

Four: I was told by Zero to come here. (hands piece of paper) He needs some weapons picked up.

Twenty-Six: (reads paper) Ah, working for Zero, are you?

Four: Iím more like his partner.

Twenty-Six: Of course you are.

Four: (glares) Iím kind of in a hurry, so could you just bring me those weapons now?

Twenty-Six: Sure, sure. One moment. (goes into back room and comes back with boxes of weapons) Tell Zero I said hi.

Four: Okay, whatever. (goes to pick up boxes; pauses) Wait a minute. You look familiar.

Twenty-Six: Really? (glances at floor nervously) Iíve never seen you before, sorry. Have a nice day. (turns to go to back room)

Four: (grabs Twenty-Sixís arm) I remember.

____________________________

I was struck with inspiration... finally. xD I like this act, personally; I think it's pretty dramatic and I left you all with two awesome cliff-hangers. This is about 4k words so far; still need 6k if I wanna post it on Inkpop. xP Which is now my goal. 8D Sorry it took forever to update; I've been busy and have had writer's block and stuff. xP ENJOY.

Act VI

The Algebra Lands:
Division District

Seven is crouched on the ground, blood gushing from his leg. Seventy-Five, Eighty-Three, Ninety-Two, and Thirty-Nine flee back to Zeroís Headquarters.


Six: Oh my Calculator! Seven! (rushes to side)

Seven: IímÖ fineÖ (tries to stand up; falls)

Two: Dude, no youíre not. We need to get you to Hexagon Hospital.

One: (on phone) Iím calling an ambulance now.

Nine: Where do you think they went?

Two: Probably back to Zero, but that doesnít matter right now.

Eight: You guys should have just let them--

Five: No, we shouldnít have. Donít blame yourself, Eight.

Eight: But if you guys hadnít tried to save me, Seven wouldnít have gotten hurt.

Two: Then weíre all to blame. The point is, whatís done is done.

Three: (also standing beside Seven) Hang in there, Seven, help is on the way.

Seven: Guys, donít worry about me. Really, Iím okayÖ (passes out)

The rest of the crew waits for the ambulance to come.

At the weapon storage unit:

Four: I remember everything. (throws Twenty-Six against wall and holds knife to his throat) I need some answers.

Twenty-Six: I helped kill your mother. What more is there to know? (sneers)

Four: Donít get cocky with me. (slices Twenty-Sixís arm) What happened to my father? Howíd you sick, disgusting, pathetic excuses for numbers kill him?

Twenty-Six: (grimaces in pain) I am afraid that is confidential.

Four: (frowns; stabs Twenty-Six through stomach) Tell me.

Twenty-Six: (smirks) I guess you might as well know now. Heís not dead.

Four: What?

Twenty-Six: Your father. Heís very much alive. You havenít run into him yet? He works with Zero.

Four: HeÖ worksÖ withÖ Youíre lying!

Twenty-Six: Why would I lie about that? I have no reason to. Your father, Forty, had joined us years ago. He was with us before your mother was killed.

Four: HeÖ helpedÖ kill her?

Twenty-Six: Oh, no. He wasnít with us that day. He knew about it, though.

Four: AndÖ He didnít try to stop you?

Twenty-Six: (shrugs) Nope.

Four: ButÖ He wouldnítÖ I donítÖ

Twenty-Six: Your fatherís a murderer, Four. A cold-blooded killer, just like the rest of us. (gazes at blood-soaked arm) Seems like youíve taken after him.

Four: No! Shut up! I am not a murderer and neither was my father!

Twenty-Six: But Iím losing way too much blood, Four. I will die in a matter of minutes.

Four: Itís not murder if you kill for vengeance.

Twenty-Six: Sure, if you wanna look at it that way. Bottom line is: Iím dying, I know that. Why would I lie to you now? I gain nothing from lying to you. Your father worked with us and killed many numbers. The case of Negative Nineteen? That was your fatherís doing. He may not have murdered your mother with his own hands, but he helped plan it and watched as we all went in for the kill.

Four: Well that still doesnít explain why heíd work with Zero.

Twenty-Six: They both want to control Mathematics, Four. Fortyís pretty good with the weapons and he has amazing stealth, but when it comes to technology, thatís Zeroís forte.

Four: ButÖ Does that mean Zero knew about what my father did?

Twenty-Six: He knows. Always has.

Four: (backs away from Twenty-Six) ButÖ He liedÖ My whole lifeÖ A lie. IÖ IÖ I need to stop this. (leaves the weapon storage unit)

At Zeroís Evil Headquarters:

Four: Zero.

Zero: Ah, youíve returned. Took you long enough. ÖWhere are all my weapons?

Four: (points revolver at Zero) Where is he?

Zero: What are you talking about?

Four: Donít play stupid, Zero! My father! Where is he?

Zero: (grins) So, you found out about that, eh?

Four: (lightly rests finger on trigger) Where is he?

Zero: He is out taking care of some business for me. He should be back any minute now. Four, letís be rational here. Donít do something youíll regret.

Four: Shut. Up. You knew all along. You donít call the shots anymore.

A door is opened. A dark figure walks into the room.

Zero: Forty, youíve--

Four: Father?

Forty: (looks at Four) Well, wellÖ Hello, Four.

Four: So you are working with ZeroÖ

Forty: Thatís right. Is there a problem?

Four: You son of a bisector! (points revolver at Forty) You let them kill Mom!

Forty: Yes, I did. They were supposed to kill you, too.

Four: ButÖ Why?

Forty: I was in love with your mother, I really was. But then we had you, and well, you took up all her time and changed her. She wasnít that murderous number anymore, just a loving mother. It made me sick. I never wanted a quotient. I just wanted to live my life without responsibility, living in risk, killing numbers. I have always loved the taste of blood, the excitement of the chase. So I joined the Vertical Organization. We targeted you and your mother so we could remove every trace of my old life. But no, you had to get away.

Four: (increases pressure on the trigger) You monster! And to think, all these years Iíve cried over you, thinking you were dead. All these years, Iíve missed you. When you were the cause of all my problems.

Forty: (holds up handgun) Put the gun down, Four, or Iíll blow it out of your hands.

Four: Not if I blow your brains out first.

Forty: Very cute. (fires gun)

Four gets shot in the arm, drops the gun, and falls to the floor.

Four: (clenching arm in pain; looks up at Forty who is now looming over him)

Forty: You hesitated. You canít kill me.

Zero: (stands beside Forty) So what shall we do with him?

Forty: Eh, lock him up. He may come in handy.

Zero: (nods)

Four is put into a cage and is moved into the deepest level of the headquarters, into a dark room.

Four: (watches Forty and Zero go back upstairs) What have I doneÖ

________________

Soo, I hope this act was shocking. (: Originally, I never intended for Four's father to be alive. But one day, I was thinking, and it came to me in a vision. ...Yes, I randomly get visions about my writing that dictate how it turns out. xP But anyway, it showed me that Forty was alive, and the phrase "Son of a bisector!" was also part of my vision. x3 And... Yeah. I thought this would make for a twisty twist and shocking shocker. Hope you enjoyed. :3

So I corrected it. ALSO I said Zero's father instead of Four's father, so yeah. GEEZ, DO YOU NEED TO KNOW EVERY LITTLE THING ABOUT MY LIFE?)
