"You bastard!" yells Sonya as she plummets down the portal.
"Deathstroke wins!" chuckles Shang Tsung.
Meanwhile, in the Netherrealm...
Sonya falls on her back onto a rock hard surface. She rolls over, groaning in pain as she sees skeletal corpses implaed on spears sticking out bodies of rock and magma.
"I'm in hell." says Sonya.
"But you shouldn't be!" says Scorpion, standing behind her.
"Yes. That's exactly why you'll let me out of here." threatens Sonya.
Scorpion creates a portal back to the palace and kicks Sonya down there. Suddenly, a green portal appears behind Scorpion. The sorcerer Quan Chi steps out of it.
"I bring news Scorpion. Sub-Zero's brother has arrived at the tournament. He wishes to challenge you in Mortal Kombat." explains Quan Chi.
"I will grant him his wish." says Scorpion, as he and Quan Chi dive through the portal back to the palace.
Back in the palace, a few minutes later, Shang Tsung is sitting on his throne as Sonya falls through the portal.
"Good to see you again, Miss Blade. If you want to find Deathstroke, he's not here." says Shang Tsung.
"Where is he?" asks Sonya.
Shang Tsung is about to tell Sonya, when the portal opens again and Scorpion and Quan Chi appear through it.
"Ah. It is our old friend, Scorpion. You will fight Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat!" yells Shang Tsung.
Sub-Zero appears in a flash of ice. With him is his friend Smoke, who appears in a cloud of gas.
"Why are you here, Smoke?" asks Sub-Zero.
"I want to help. Bi-Han was my friend as well." says Smoke.
"It appears we have another challenger. What is your name, ninja?" asks Shang Tsung.
"Well, it appears you are outnumbered Scorpion. Are you sure you don't want any help from Quan Chi?" asks Shang Tsung.
Scorpion turns to Quan Chi, who wields his sword.
"No. I will kill both of you fools and avenge my family once and for all!" yells Scorpion, as he wields his katana and runs at Sub-Zero and Smoke.
Sub-Zero creates an ice sword and blocks Scorpion's strikes. Smoke then teleports behind Scorpion and kicks him in the back. As Scorpion stumbles toward Sub-Zero, Sub-Zero grabs him and knees him in the stomach. Scorpion steadies himself after that beating, and shakes his dizziness away.
Sub-Zero and Smoke then both charge at Scorpion and do a rapid series of strikes on Scorpion, punching him several times, until Scorpion blocks both of their punches and slams their heads together.
"You are not as strong as your brother, it seems." taunts Scorpion.
"You can't beat both of us, spectre! You killed my brother, and now you'll pay!" exclaims Sub-Zero.
"What? I did not kill him. Deathstroke did!" explains Scorpion.
"Lier!" yells Smoke.
"He speaks the truth." intervenes Shang Tsung.
"Then where is this man? I wish to face him!" demands Sub-Zero.
"Very well. He is in the gardens speaking with the thunder god." says Shang.
"Come, Smoke." says Sub-Zero as the two walk out the door.
"They can't do that! Tell them to come here!" demands Scorpion, raising his fist against the sorcerer.
"Restraint, Scorpion!" yells Quan Chi.
Scorpion puts down his hand and teleports back to the Netherrealm with Quan Chi. Sonya clenches her fists and walks back to her room.
(OOC: So Deathstroke is talking to Raiden and Liu Kang about his situation presumably. I guess it's about time we got round to the actual plot.)
