"Sergei Kazimir, I think it's about time we settle things. Isn't it?"
Silence. Sergei kept focused. He knew he had to.
"You and me?" Sato continued. "We are not the same. We've never been. And no matter how much you tried to deny it, you never stood a chance against me anyway. You're nothing more than a pathetic loser. Nothing more than a wasted experiment. If Psycho and I didn't get you out of that laboratory, you'd been dead by now."
"So you'd expect me to be grateful now?" Sergei screamed. "That I adore you and follow all of your orders, just because you fucking saved me?"
There was a faint smile on his ugly face.
"I've had more than enough of your stupid mindgames, Sato. Who the hell do you think you are anyway? You are nothing more than a fucking monster!"
Sato smiled. "At least I didn't beg you to save me. In contrary to you, I do have my dignity."
"Dignity? Don't make me laugh, you shithead. I'm going to kill you, and when I do, I will dance on your fucking grave!"
"Oh?" Sato smirked. "I'm sorry to disappoint you, Sergei, but I don't think you'll live long enough to see that day."
"What makes you think so?"
Sato shut his eyes for a brief moment, only to open them with a bright red glow. An energy field activated and filled the air with static electricity.
"You know" he said, calmly. "It's science. All experiments come to an end some day. The day when the scientists draw their conclusions and destroy all the evidence. It's that day. It's time we bring this experiment to an end. It's been long enough, you know".
Sergei kept silent. His eyes got bigger, as he felt the energy field getting stronger.
"Bye bye, mister Kazimir. It was fun working with you..."
