DISCLAIMER: This story will have graphic imagery. If you are squeamish, I highly recommend not reading any further.


After his seeming defeat by Solomon, Red had reconstructed his body into his gigantic Final Form, transporting us to a blazing inferno in the process. It was reminiscent of our first encounter. Except now the scenery, much like the true power of Red, had become very real. The music had erupted into a loud blaring sound, a furious drum of death.

Faced against Red's insane amount of health, my own demise was imminent. Solomon was my strongest monster, but not even he stood a chance. It was like trying to fight a mountain. With in seconds, Solomon was overpowered and dropped to the floor. When Red crushed him to death underneath his foot, the sadistic demon took his time as he snapped Solomon's vertebrae and ribs like dry, brittle twigs. I could tell he was enjoying our pain.

"This is hopeless. I'm a dead man."


I had no choice, but to send another monster to his death. We were all going to die. I only hoped they would forgive me.

After decreasing Red's health by a minuscule amount, Anguirus was also obliterated. Red unleashed a hail of blazing hot needles into his face until he collapsed. Another moment of unspeakable agony, then nothingness as my ally faded away.

I asked Red how he knew my name.


And then, he said this:

For years, she was being tortured by something nobody understood. Now, I knew what it was.


Now, I understood why I was mocked about Melissa's death and how the game knew about it. It was because HE knew about it. HE was the one responsible. This time, he was going to kill me.

I was taken back to the board to send Godzilla to his final stand. Barely anything was left on the board. Just Godzilla and Red's icon and...the fifth monster.


In the midst of everything, I had completely forgotten about it. I tried yet again to select it. I cursed, I begged, I screamed at it to do something, ANYTHING to help me. To no avail.


There was only one thing to do.

I knew Godzilla didn't stand any more of a chance than the rest did. But maybe, maybe now that all of the monsters were gone, the fifth monster might finally awaken.


I managed to get the monster's icon selected and I pressed the "A" button as fast as I could. The icon started to shake as if it was trying desperately to move!


It was then that Red decided he was done playing fair. Before I could activate the monster, he went for the killing blow, paralyzing my heart.


My hands started to become numb and unfeeling, but even as my vision was fading away I still tried to press the "A" button.

Red was surely breaking one of his rules, but he must have thought that if he killed me quickly, then it would be too late for any consequences to matter. He would have won.


He was wrong.

Red's power was being challenged by another force and it prevented him from killing me. When I regained my vision, I saw a familiar sight.
