Truth sat upon his throne, looking down on his kingdom; everyone below him, either hiding or trembling beneath his feet. Some had heard of what he did, many others refused to believe that Happy had been murdered.
Only a few held on to hope, that perhaps this wasn't for good.
However, Truth was just getting started, the dominoes had only begun to fall.
"Lord Truth, what would you like now?" The barkeep asked T, as he cleaned up the few leftover beer glasses.
"Well, Dear Poe, I Do Believe I Will Take Two Glasses Of Your Finest Wine. I Have Company Coming Soon."
Poe looked on the shelf and picked out a La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904, pouring two glasses, he wondered who was coming to visit.
"She Should Be About To Walk In."
Mazikeen entered Truth's Bar and quickly spotted him; she started walking towards him, with a frown on her face.
"You asshole!" She screamed, readied her knives and charged against Truth.
"Now, Now--" Truth evaded her swings, started defending himself, Mazikeen trying to land any blows on him, non-stop, her adrenaline keeping her focused.
"Maze, You Do Not Want To Do This."
"Lucifer will be here soon, I just told him I wanted to draw first blood! You need to be put down like the dog you are!"
Mazikeen struck Truth on his chest, tearing his clothes, spilling a bit of blood. Her knives always cut deep and deadly.
"Well, Mission Accomplished, I Should Say. Congratulations. This Will Be The Last Thing You Do."
"You always have to take over, don't you? You always want to be in control, be the top wolf, but guess what, you never care what happens to all of us! We are always just collateral damage in every little war of yours!"
Truth kept fighting Mazikeen, they both growing tired, minutes became hours, for time passed differently here. And Maze never dropping her guard, Maze always holding onto her knives--the only things she trusted more than anything in her world.
The wine glasses untouched, on the bar, Poe overlooking everything; he knew better than to interfere.
"You Done Yet, Mazikeen?" Truth exclaimed from the floor, looking up at Maze, covered in bruises, blood and scars.
"We're not done! Get up!" Maze was growing tired.
"No, No, What Did You Bloody Do?" Lucifer had arrived at Truth's Bar a little too late.
"I Did What Was Needed, Morningstar. You Of All People Should Know."
"Maze, Maze! Mazikeen!!! Answer Me, Please, Breathe, Hey, I'm Here!" Lucifer held onto Maze's corpse. Truth had set her ablaze, and while her charred corpse sat lifeless in Lucifer's arms, Truth just stood there.
And did nothing.
"You Twat! You Have Any Idea What This Means!?" Lucifer picked up Maze's body, and started carrying her out of Truth's Bar.
He looked back at Truth and said,
"You Wanted War. Well, You Got It."
"Looking Forward To It, Morningstar."
"I'll See You On The Other Side, You Pest."
