This is a story mainly focusing on my character, Axel. Son of Jack Skellington. This is mainly about his war with his inner darkness with grows stronger as he fights it. However the big question is: Will he conquer the darkness or will he be its puppet? Sequel to The Devil and the Skeleton.
Chapter 1: Axel resurfaces after twenty years.
Twenty years ago, Vergil, Axel, Jack and a group of strange heroes fought a small war against Oogie and Mundus. Everyone lived happily ever after...However one didn't. The heir of Halloween Town. He was growing into an evil, unstable being. He didn't know how it started, but he wanted to get rid of it. Axel sat un a waterfall, in a meditative state. He wore a long black leather trenchcoat with the hood down, leaning on his should was Alastor. He was wearing black leather gloves, black jeans and black boots with the coat. He was stronger then Revenga, his nephew.
Vergil held his daughter as he walked through the streets of Halloween. "Its only May...How time goes by slow..." He said with a sigh. He then kissed River on the cheek and smiled. "Atleast I have a good family to spend the rest of my life with."
River giggled. She was like her grandfather a skeleton. She had inherited some of Vergils devil powers, but not enough. She grabbed her fathers cheeks. "I wuv you daddy." She said innocently.
Vergils older son Revenga walked out of his own house. He was a male ragdoll. He inherited alot of Vergils power. He was just like his father. "Hello dad and hello River." He said with a nod. "Wheres Kilmataio?" He asked Vergil.
Vergil blinked. "That boy is with your mother looking for beautiful stones. I think their in the Hinterlands." He said with a nod.
Revenga nodded and walked towards his mother and younger brother. He wore a suit similar to his fathers. Except his was reversed. He found his brother and mother. "Hey."
Kilmataio looked at Revenga and ran upto him and hugged him. "Big brother!" He said with a big grin. "I found you something special. Now you can't tell anyone." He handed over a wooden katana. "Cool huh?"
Revenga held the fake blade up. "This must be Uncle Axels...It has his name on it." He said with a nod.
Vincent was in a tree watching for any invaders to the town. "You best not look for him. Right now he is fighting off his inner demons. He will be fine eventually...Or so we hope." He said looking down at his friends.
Revenga nodded. "Alright Vincent, I will stay away from him." He said as he turned and took Kilmataio back to Cola. "Here is the little wanderer. I gotta get back to dad." He turned and ran towards Vergil.
Axel was watching from a distance. He didn't move closer because of Dracula, Daetrin, Alucard and Vincent guarding the town.
Chapter 1 everyone! This story will focus mainly on the Skellingtons. The guest heroes have super tiny roles.
