She didn't understand. I could tell now. I take off the mask of Xaero and his face is bloodied by my attacks. I look at him and say, "You're human, aren't you?" Xaero turn to face away from me and I nod. I knew then what his motives were. It was out of her protection from her fate that he treated her the way he did. I let him melt back into my body to let his wounds from me heal. Many of his bones had been broken from my assault. I leap onto a building and look over the expanse of the city. Most of it was just rubble now, almost nothing left to build up. I look out over the battlefield as an army of the pitiful humans raised their weapons up to the air and yell, screamed, and for some, belched their victory. I on the other hand knew that it wasn't over. Not just yet, "There's still one more challenge to face...it just hasn't revealed itself yet." Kaminari was off to satisfy the hunger she had come to know. Not realizing that that hunger can go away. But what it means to do so...means to form an uneasy bond to someone. A sort of pact.
