Helen's unborn child kicked harder as the contractions occurred at an accelerating rate. The last bit of sand in the hourglass was almost through. "Hurry Fabocusa," she screamed in her head as she grasped clumps of her raven black hair to try to distract herself from the ongoing pain. She lay on the table in the labor room of the hospital waiting for her husband. She rubbed her pale bulged belly, comforting her child. She hoped that her love would come before their child does. She didn't want him to miss it. A tear ran down her cheek as her amber eyes bore into the door willing to be opened. Another contraction began and she gripped her belly. "Fabocusa, please," she whispered. Seventeen was too early for a girl such as her to give birth, especially alone.
Med 25 examined a holographic image of the child checking its vital signs and body structure. Helen eyed on it as a better distraction. The image changed to reveal the physical appearance of the child, then it showed the anatomy. She then heard the child's heart beating on the monitor. As she listened to that soothing rhythm, she thought about the times she'd spent with her soul mate and child. It also gave her confidence that he would arrive very soon. When Med 25 finished the examination, it extended a couple of its limbs out and transformed them into delivery hands to use them for the delivery.
Then all of the sudden, an alarm blared violently all over the hospital and spread across the city. Everyone screamed and running in every direction. Helen got scared, not knowing what was happening. Looking around, she saw a built-in emergency page speaker on a wall she could use to call her rescuer, but couldn't reach it from her table.
As she tried desperately to reach for the speaker to call for help, an angry, dark, distorted demonic voice came from all over the city, even as well as in the hospitals' voice announcement. The demon himself manifested above the city and gave his speech.
As soon as Seiton gave that speech, all Helen could hear were loud explosions came all over the city. The child was an inch away from being born and she couldn't stand up and run for life; all she could do was cry for Fabocusa's help.
Then Seiton appeared have his energy and computer codes swirled around him as he pointed his finger towards her.
"Helen, the Spacer King's whore!" Seiton snarled. Helen crouch down in fear from his menacing glare-- his knowledge of Fabocusa and herself frightened her.
"Get away from me!" Helen cried back pathetically as she wrapped her arms around her belly trying to hide it.
"NO!" Seiton roared and another contraction struck the young girl as if someone stabbed her with a battle axe.
He continued, "A year ago, you served as a slave after your family was killed by a plague. You were tortured, beaten, and forced to work under the command of your masters. This damn Spacer, Fabocusa saved and impregnate you. You, the Humans, Mowls, Higer, all of the primitives were all a mistake that the Mechaniods made. You, the Spacers, and the primitives just do was live, die, feed, starve, rot, and burn into ashes. That is what this galaxy is filled with. Nothing, but useless infested critters!"
Seiton's words overpowered her as her eyes were force locked into his. Helen thought she couldn't cry any more tears, her face hot and heavy, unable to see anything and fire burn through the deity's eyes.
He continued, "And you have seen my vision of a perfected universe where all of the Spacers' Children gathered around and waited until I burned them with my own hands showing everyone that I am the true god of the universe!
"Stop it! Just stop! Don't do this to us!" Helen cried.
"You will die before that foolish husband of yours reaches you along with your child!" he snared looking down at her bulged belly, knowing that she was pregnant with a Human/Spacer hybrid. "As for your child, it shall be ripped out of your womb!"
He snapped his fingers and disappeared. Then he gained control over Med 25 and directed it towards her belly. Helen was then strapped to the table unable to escape. It hovered over her and took out its laser saw. Death was coming for both of them.
"No! No! No! Not my baby! No!" she kept screaming as it targeted her belly for the butchering.
Just when its laser saws met the skin of her belly, Fabocusa burst into the room, grabbed Med 25, and threw it across the room. He took out his battle rifle and shot it down with a beam of light. As it was destroyed, he ripped the metal straps off of Helen and held her as tightly as he could.
"My love, we must leave now!" Fabocusa shouted as he lifted her into his arm as a firefighter carrying a child out of a burning house.
"What are we going to do?!" Helen cried.
"We got to get to the throne room," Fabocusa said as he puts a gas mask on her. "At the back of the room, there is a portal I created which would take you to planet Chartorla. We need to go there now!"
Seiton's swarm medical probes charged at them, but were blasted away by Fabocusa's rifle. When they got out of the hospital, the scenery changed drastically. Each power plant was blowing up; many Spacer ships were crashing down to the planet; every building was collapsing; every vehicle was crashing at random directions; the roads opened up with erupting flames, which spread like wild fires; missiles and bombs were going off; many people were being burned, ripped apart by the medical probes, and/or gassed to death. Their world was falling apart and there wasn't anything they could do to stop it.
Two more shuttles charged at them from all directions, but he made a shield that shattered those shuttles. As they made it through the gate, another wave of probes came up behind them. But he touched a button on his rifle and threw it at the swarm. The rifle sets off a powerful explosion, which wiped out that wave.
When they got to the throne room, a ring-shaped portal was just behind their throne. Fabocusa had her lean against a wall as he activates the portal. He punched the codes and a vortex was formed for them to go through. The palace started to crumble and there was little time for the portal to stay open. He had to get his wife through the portal before it was too late.
"My love, you have to go through the portal without me," Fabocusa said as he got his Human wife back on her feet.
Helen was very shocked to hear that from her long time soul mate. She felt her heart crack.
"I want you to be with our baby!" she cried. Then another contraction began, this time the pain felt worse causing her to scream and lose her balance. He grabbed her just before she fell to the floor.
He warned her, "If I go with you, Seiton will gain control over the portal and we'll end up either in empty space, a black hole, or worse. I have to stay and keep that portal under my control until you reach Chartorla."
"You will die!" she warned him.
"Then I shall die!" he stated.
"If you are going to die, I will die with you!" she shouted denying him to end his life for her.
"No Helen, your life is more important than mine! I have to sacrifice myself to save you and our child!" he shouted. "You must hold on! Can you do that for me?"
Helen looked down into the floor as she cried. He lifted her face up, wiped off her tears, placed his hand on her bulged belly, and begged, "Please, live for our child."
Tears ran down both of their cheeks as their eyes were reunited. She nodded and he gave her a quick passionate kiss goodbye. After they kissed, Fabocusa said, "I love you."
"I love you too," Helen cried as she kissed him goodbye. As soon as she went through the portal, Fabocusa kept holding onto the controls.
"Come on! You can get there!" Fabocusa kept shouting out loud. Then the control system of the portal made beeping noises telling him that she made it. Fabocusa smiled and Spacer ship crashed through the roof of the palace.
