The Arks: Over Heaven (by Ben)

Chapter 59: Funeral

Part 3/3

“O-Okay, YOU GOT ME!” Jerry struggled out his words, “I YIELD.”

The blue fire flickered away, and the blue aura around Jerry disappeared. Jerry dropped to the ground, and the Carcharodontosaurus stared at Loki with a smile. Jerry got up from the ground, the smile faded from his face. He gave another smile, putting his hands back in his pockets.

“You’re strong,” Jerry told Loki.

“I know.”

Jerry walked up to Loki, and Loki stared him down.

“I respect that fighting spirit, Loki,” Jerry said while licking his lips, “You aren’t afraid to get ya’ hands dirty. So, how about this… I’ll handle whatever hit you want me to handle. Free of charge.”

Loki looked at Maddox, and he shrugged. Loki turned back to Jerry.

“And how will I know that you will get this job done?”

Jerry held his left hand out. A red glow began to emanate from his implant.

“A blood pact. If I fail to finish the task and return in… say, three day’s time, I’ll have my heart compromised. It’ll put me in pain for a very long time, and I won’t survive for long. You won’t suffer any consequences. The only thing I ask you to do, is to let me do whatever I want around here.”

Loki grabbed onto Jerry’s hand.

“You can do whatever you want, but if I tell you to do something you’ll listen.”

Jerry grinned maniacally.

“That’s right. So do we have a deal?”

“Yes,” Loki said as he shook his hand. Loki’s implant began to glow, and then both implants stopped glowing. Jerry put his hands back in his pockets and hopped back on his Carcharodontosaurus.

“So what’s the first thing you want me to do?” Jerry asked.

Loki briefly explained about the Knowers down south, and Jerry smiled.

“They’ve got a T-Rex huh? Perfect. That’ll be a tasty snack for Romeo.”

Jerry tugged on the reins of Romeo again, and Romeo began to walk off.

“You have my word that I’ll finish the job!”

As the Carcharodontosaurus disappeared into the fog, Loki turned to Maddox and Dr. Aston.

“That’s one thing down,” Loki said, “Now we need to move to Step 2.”

“It’s time we collect our next artifact.”
