After dropping her and the three idiots off at the police
station he was feeling kinda tired him self. So he thought he would go
back to the apartment and hit the sack. He flew into his alley window
and once inside his costume dematerialized. Then with his his ring
wipes up a flashlight and was ready to go to bed BUT what he saw was not
good. His apartment was thrashed things over turned things scattered
around, fearing the villain was still there his suit rematerialized
around him. Then a large lantern appeared in his right hand
illuminating the room everything was messed up. He noticed Jade laying
heap on the floor. He flew across the room and hit the lights. That's
when he saw it a message on the wall "LANTERN MEET ME AT ELLIS ISLAND
TOMORROW NIGHT ALONE SIGNED AN OLD FRIEND"
"Great" he thought "who Sonar, Dr. Light?" He had no time to
think about it he flew to the middle of the room to check on Jade she
was unconscious but otherwise ok.
"Jade, Jade wake up!" he said shaking her.
"Huh, wha, where KYLE WHERE IS HE!"
"Gone but who was, it who?"
"I-I-I donno he had long hair, and a goatee and transparent
legs and was on fire with a pale green flame."
"Someone who I thought was dead. See I helped him by
giving him a little power so he could walk again, but then Neron made a
bargain with him and turned him into that. After he failed killing me
Neron took him to hell. I thought that was the end of him."
"I guess not."
"Looks like I have to fight him again."
"No, I have to try to help him."
"Help him, but"
"No, buts I feel some what responsible, this is my
problem. Maybe maybe I just had an idea, are you ok I gotta go."
"Um, Yeah I think so."
With that Kyle flew out the window the sun was coming up
now, Kyle was really getting tired now but he had a plan it wasnít a
great plan but a plan find out who Purgatory really is and find him and
attack him first. The only way to do that was to go to where this began
New York Public Library. He remembered Purgatory saying he lost his
leg's in a subway accident maybe they would have newspapers on microfilm
but it would most likely be closed. As Kyle got there he saw someone
going in the back door. He flew down there.
"Excuse me?" he said to the man.
"Oh my Green Lantern!" he said shocked.
"Yeah well do you work here?"
"Yes did you think I was breaking in? I just have a lot of
paperwork to do and would like to get an early start."
"No, not at all I was wondering if I could use the
newspaper microfilms. It would be very helpful to me."
"Well of course, wow Iím helping a member of the JLA"
Well after an hour of looking Kyle found what he was
looking for. He found some one with identical injuries to Purgatoryís
the guyís name is Paul Christian. He found something else he had a
sister Stephanie who died in the accident. After he left the library he
found an old phone book and found Paul Christianís address. Kyle went
there but the house had been sold. so much for his plan. Even if he
found Purgatory heís so tired it was getting hard to concentrate so he
went back to his apartment to sleep.
When he got there Jade was up and about still a little
shaken but otherwise ok. Kyle slept most of the day and awoke just
before nightfall. Charged up his ring and was ready to leave.
"Kyle you sure you want to go it alone?"
"I have to."
Then he was off flying top speed to Ellis Island to the
Statue of Liberty. He got there at sunset and waited and waited and
waited. It was 12:30A.M. when Purgatory showed. He came in blazing
flying straight at GL, then dead stopped.
"GREEN LANTERN!!!!!!!! Iím gonna KILL YOU!!!!!" he shrieked. Then sent
a pale green blast of fiery energy right at Kyle. Kyle quickly created
a shield to protect himself, and dodged out of the way. Then made a
really big cartoon mallet and slammed Purgatory to the ground with it.
Purgatory lay there limp.
"It couldnít be that easy," Kyle said.
Then he flipped over and ,while firing another energy blast
at Kyle, said, "YOUR RIGHT!" This time Kyle was to close to dodge or
make a shield in time. The blast hit him full force knocking him a good
20 yards. Kyle was dazed trying to get up didnít see Purgatory flying
straight for him. Purgatory flew right into Kyleís chest and knocked
him to the shore line. Purgatory was getting ready for another energy
blast, but this time Kyle saw it coming. He flew straight up the blast
went under him. Then Kyle made some armor and a really big SCI-fi type
gun. Purgatory was still blasting at him but Kyle
weaved around the blasts.
"Why, I tried to help you?" Kyle said as he was weaving.
"Because You seNt me to HELL!!!" Purgatory said still
blasting away. Kyle was now on the other side of him and used that
really big SCI-fi type gun to blast Purgatory out 50 yards off the
island. Kyle stood there waiting for Purgatory to come flying out of
the water. A blast came alright but from way left of where he was
expecting it. Kyle formed a shield seconds before the blast hit him,
and it blasted through the shield in seconds. It hit Kyleís armor and
ripped through that too. This blast knocked GL to the other side of the
As Kyle was getting up he whispered to himself, "I got him
mad now." He looked up and saw Purgatory flying right at him. For
some odd reason he yelled, "PAUL WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS I TRIED TO
Purgatory stopped "P-Paul?" his eyes when from fiery green
to normal. Then he shook his head and his eyes blazed again, "PAUL is
DEAD! He died in HELL!" Purgatory sent another blast at Kyle. Kyle
flew right barley dodging the blast.
Kyle realized he hit a nerve when he said his real name.
So he tried again, "PAUL! I can help. Let me help."
"NO PAUL IS DEAD! HE DIED WHEN YOU SENT HIM TO HELL!!!!!"
"No I tried to help. I donít know what youíve been though
but it was NERON who sent you to hell!"
"neron? no, you sent me to hell."
"No I didnít. Neron did," then remembering the newspapers,
Paulís sister, "what would Stephanie think?"
"st-Stephanie, n-neron, oh my god STEPHANIE!! Oh dear lord
WHAT HAVE I BECOME!"
Kyle saw that what he said had an impact, "Itís all right."
"Oh no what have I done, Iím sorry Iím so sorry."
Then there was a blinding flash of yellow light and there
standing before Kyle and Paul was NERON!
"That's right NERON!"
"NO oh no please no not again," Paul whimpered. Kyle knew
he had good reason to Neron kicked the crap out of Kyle once too.
"What do you want Neron?" Kyle tried to say as confidently
as he could.
"HmHmHm You try to sound brave Green Lantern but you know I
can beat the living Crap out of you."
"Yeah well worth a shot."
"You amuse me Lantern, but as for you Paul Christian should
have never been given such power you pathetic fool. So now it shall be
taken away." Neron held up a hand in Paul's direction and a beam of
yellow light shot out of his hand at Paul.
Paul screamed "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and
then fell limply backwards. No flaming body, energy legs.
"Oh my," Kyle said as he bent down to see if Paul was dead
or alive, "Heís alive? But why."
"I believe you have an expression never look a gift horse
in the mouth. Just never try to give him power again or he will turn
back into Purgatory." Then just like that he disappeared.
"Ok what was that about?" Kyle wondered to himself. He put
Paul on a stretcher he made with his ring and took him to the hospital.
After that he went back to his apartment.
"Kyle, what happened?" Jade asked as he flew through the
"Neron turned him back to a normal person."
"What! DID YOU BARGAIN!!"
"No, I donít know why he did it."
Then they said in unison, "Weird"
Down in the dark pits of hell Neron laughs to himself.
Because they all think he did a good thing, a nice thing for no reason,
but he did not get rid of Purgatory. Oh no he merely put him in
hibernation waiting for the right time to come out...
