"You two really did a number on me."
It was no exaggeration.
One on one, and Null could have easily defeated either of the young soldiers. But as a pair? They proved to be more than a match for his abilities.
His left hand massaged the bulk of his neck and right shoulder muscle. Null whirled his arm in a circular pattern, wincing as he worked out the aches and pains from their fight.

Most of them gave the pair of them a wide berth, having bared witness to the heights of their incredible power levels. It was the reason the commanding officer permitted them passage off of Katchin on the vessel, normally reserved for active duty soldiers.
