Skull barely saw it coming. The hit to his gut doubled him over then thrn came the hit at his head. But when Pauls fist hit Skulls mask there was a clank. The blow was almost completely stopped simply by his mask. Skull stumbled back for a second.
"Heh...I was right. You are interesting. But you better hurry if you want to get to the tower. You've only got 10 minutes left, and at least a 30 minute run ahead of you. I'll let you go, but when you fail make sure you keep running. I'm gonna be the reaper comin' after you." Skull held the gun for a moment before it returned to a bullet. He took one last look at Paul before jumping back. As he did he turned somewhat see-through midair and phased through the street floor into the sewers. In the utter darkness of the sewer, Skull lifted his mask and rubbed his jaw. Little bastard. Skull spit something into the sewer water. He took out a tooth with that punch.
