The gun was pointed at the young leader, right between her eyes, the red glow getting brighter and intimidating. Mercy felt herself freeze up when the weapon was aimed directly at her. Sangre smilled." I dont have time for a pest like you, so get out of my way, or I will shoot. I dont want waste my energy on pests like you and your little group."
The fire peashooter glared at her with his fiery gaze." After what you did? Do you really think we will just let you go by idly and kill more innocent lives? Fat chance!"
Sangre stared at the fire pea while smirking." And I wont be letting myself get taken or killed by you lot so easily. Tell me, what are you going to do now? Step aside or else. You have five seconds"
Mercy's eyes widen at their predicament. What were they to do?! If they step aside and let her go, they are letting a serial killer pass by like some citizen.
If they were to try and take her down, her group including herself, would be killed.
"3..."Sangre stared at the group, not continuing her countdown.They didn't move, but she could see slight quivering coming from each of the plants."Hmpt, I take you wont step a side, you are all way too passionate about protecting your citizens despite the fear underneath your skins. Very well, lets fight, this might be fun" Sangre shot a beam at Mercy out of the blue.
The fire pea immediately shoved her away from being hit, making her fall to the ground several feet away from him. The other plants moved out of the way. The beam impacted his arm which burned the skin severely. He hissed from the pain it brought on him.
Sangre laughed quietly " NOW you all moved." She aimed her gun to the fire pea and shot him again, this time the side of his face. The fire pea was too focused on his burned arm to notice the second laser. He screamed as a third of his face turned a sickly burnt green color.
A third laser raced towards him, but the peashooter used hyper at the last second to jump out of the way. The laser beam only graced the tip of his root leaf, the tip burned off into ash. The fire pea gave a glare with his good eye at the savage orange. He shot several flaming peas at her which Sangre dodged rather easily. The sunflower used her heal beam to help the fire pea of his injuries when she was close enough, and the cactus shot needles fiercely towards Sangre. Sangre shot attacks at the three, which made the cactus stopped shooting and laid down a tallnut battlement infront of them to block it. The wallnuts and tallnuts were receiving heavy damage and wouldn't last long.
Mercy got up quickly, which Sangre noticed from the corner of her eye. She turned to her and shot a laser. Instinctively, Mercy activated her shield to block it. It impacted her shield, the hit made her slide back and over half her shield's health was already used. Mercy's eyes widen at the powerful damage it caused.
Sangre rushed towards her, raising an arm to ready to send her flying with a punch. The regular peashooter saw and hyper towards Mercy to push her out of the way. Sangre's shot hit the pea and he fell to the ground, wringed in pain. Mercy swore she heard something crack. However, Mercy had enough, she was letting her own people sacrifice themselves to save and protect her from Sangre when she is the one that should be protecting them.
Mercy got up from the ground and shot an EMPeach at her. Sangre dodged out of the way by jumping back. Mercy then aimed her cannon and shot lasers, but they were blocked by Sangre's shield. Sangre smirked and began making her way to the pink plant while blocking her lasers shots. Mercy's eye's widen and kept shooting till she needed to recharge. Sangre then lunged at her, eyes as sharp as a cat of prey and mouth open, golden teeth glinting and ready to tear flesh apart.
Mercy closed her eyes, feeling fear of dying.
Then a yell was heard and a heavy thud echoed out. Mercy opened her eyes and saw...Sombra limping towards her.
"S-Sombra?! What are you doing here?! Your supposed to be receiving medical help at the base!" Mercy was baffled at what she was doing here, injured, and in the middle of a battle against that killer fruit. Speaking of, Mercy looked at her surroundings and saw Sangre strewn on the ground quite distance from them.
She got up quickly and her mouth turned into a hard smiled to Sombra. "With those injuries you won't last long." Sangre was about to shoot but noticed the regular peashooter charging at her. She stood her ground, ready to attacked, but then he shot a chili bean bomb at her direction. Sangre saw and swatted it away when it got close enough. It flew high into the sky, and it didn't take long for gravity to take it back down. The fire pea noticed that the bean was about to land very close to the vampire flower that Sangre caught, still unconscious and trapped in the net, so he hyper towards the flower despite the sunflower trying to stop him.
Sangre looked at the peashooter that shot the chili bean bomb, who turned around to charge at her. She stepped aside and grabbed the pea by the neck. She looked at peashooter directly to his eyes with sadistic smile and pointed her gun at his face while he struggled in her grip. Sombra saw it and took out a knife in her coat, Mercy pointed her gun to Sangre, and both shot their attacks at her, a knife flew through the air along side a laser heading towards her.
The fire pea raced towards the vampire flower and picked her up just as the bean landed beside him. He turned so his back was to the bean and his front to protect the flower, and that's when the bean exploded. He screamed as he and the flower flew several feet from their original spot.
Sangre saw the attacks heading her way, and instead of dodging, she raised the peashooter she was holding firmly infront of herself like a shield. She smiled as the knife pierce the pea's stem and the laser burned the area on his neck while he screamed loudly in pain. Mercy widened her eyes in horror, skin turning slightly pale while Sombra glared hard Sangre.
The fire pea fell to the ground on his stomach with severe injuries while the vampire flower remained on the ground with slight injuries. The sunflower ran to them, immediately activating her heal beam to her peashooter teammate since he suffered the most. The cactus turned towards Sangre with glare and shot needles, and just like with Mercy's and Sombra's attacks she used the now dead peashooter as a shield to block the needles, which embedded themselves on the pea's body. Sangre threw the corpse at the cactus making them plump to the ground harshly.
Sangre yawned "it's been nice playing with you all, but I can't play anymore on an empty stomach." Sangre patted the area where her stomach would be. The cactus threw the pea's body of her, got up, and charged at Sangre with pure fury. Sangre, however, jumped and dived into the water. The cactus shot needles into the murky depths, wanting to hurt that dam orange, she only stopped shooting to reload her spikes. Sombra and Mercy ran up to the edge of the plank walkway, looking down in the water for Sangre.
They only saw bubbles that rose to the surface and popped, nothing else.
Mercy looked to the dead peashooter and the injured fire peashooter, her heart heavy from the loss. A serial killer escaped and another plant died, and she couldn't do anything to save them or stop her.
