Chapter 4:

Vorelando Jones Asserts His Victory

Vorelando Magic


The silence was so absolute, the sound of bone shards hitting the floor could be heard all the way at the back of the crowd.Bookmark here

Unlike with Kobe, this upset drew no cheers. They barely understood what had just happened, they weren’t even sure if Vorelando had really won.Bookmark here

“This is a farce, Clark already had him beat!”Bookmark here

“Yeah!”Bookmark here

The crowd whipped up into a frenzy, angrily shouting out a million different objections to Vorelando’s apparent victory. If Kobe was style, Vorelando was substance, he’d won but no one was happy about it, not even himself.Bookmark here

“What do you want from me? I won didn’t I?”Bookmark here

The crowd did not hear him and continued to pelt him with insults and missiles. He jumped up to the top of the cage and squeezed through the bars, then he grabbed the terrified announcer by the throat.Bookmark here

“QUIET.”Bookmark here

Everyone in the arena shut themselves up instantly. This was no normal man they were watching and they felt that.Bookmark here

“Did anyone hear him declare a victor?” Vorelando said as he presented Wuffer to the crowd.Bookmark here

“I dare any of you to tell me they did.”Bookmark here

Silence.Bookmark here

“Go on then.”Bookmark here

He shook Wuffer’s body to indicate what he should do.Bookmark here

“Garg… I cahnt…aghh”Bookmark here

“Oh right.”Bookmark here

He dropped Wuffer onto the bars with a clang. He gasped for air and felt at his nearly crushed throat. He looked upwards only to be met with Vorelando’s furious, expectant stare.Bookmark here

“Ladies and… gentlemen… your winner… Vorelando Jones…”Bookmark here

The silence continued even after the announcement.Bookmark here

“Anyone want to disagree with that? That one guy from earlier sure sounded like he would. Where is he, huh? Where are you now, coward.”Bookmark here

“Vo!”Bookmark here

Vorelando’s head cracked around without his body moving an inch. Emerging from the locker rooms was Kobe Steakhouse.Bookmark here

“Get off the goddamn cage.”Bookmark here

Kobe hopped up to the roof of the cage and started walking towards Vorelando.Bookmark here

“I don’t see why I-“Bookmark here

Bang. Knee to the face, hands in the pockets. Kobe struck so fast no one comprehended what had happened until a couple of moments after. Kobe slung his unconscious friend over his shoulder and smiled at the crowd.Bookmark here

“Sorry about that folks, my friend here isn’t the most well adjusted person around, doesn’t know when he’s overstayed his welcome.”Bookmark here

Kobe turned heel and floated off the cage to the crowd with Vorelando, carrying him to the locker rooms. All the while the crowd’s noise level grew behind him.Bookmark here

“Kobe! Kobe! Kobe!”Bookmark here

Even if Crackremento had lost it’s wonder kids of vore, it had gained a new one that would resonate with it’s people more than they ever had.Bookmark here

“Wake up.”Bookmark here

Kobe slapped Vorelando across the face and sure enough, he woke.Bookmark here

“Kobe… where am I?”Bookmark here

“You’re in the locker room, dumb ass. I ain’t carrying you back to your house.”Bookmark here

Suddenly Cayenne burst into the room with tears flowing down her face and ran towards Vorelando.Bookmark here

“Cayen-“Bookmark here

She slapped him straight across the face.Bookmark here

“What the hell was that Vorelando??? You ruined Kobe’s whole flow. No one’s going to be talking about him now, they’re only going to be talking about the scene you caused.”Bookmark here

“Well then I’m sorry I won.”Bookmark here

“I’m happy you won, it’s the stuff afterwards that I didn’t like. Besides, where did you even learn to-“Bookmark here

“Cayenne.” Kobe cut her off. “Drop that.”Bookmark here

Cayenne wanted to say something back but she decided to drop it. Kobe’s day had already been ruined enough.Bookmark here

“Now get out, the locker room is for registered vorers only.”Bookmark here

“Well what about him then?” she said, pointing at Vorelando.Bookmark here

“Where the hell else do you expect me to put him? Now go on, scram.”Bookmark here

He slapped her on the ass and sent her on her way.Bookmark here

As soon as Cayenne had left the room, Vorelando spoke up.Bookmark here

“Kobe… why did you stop her?”Bookmark here

“If you want to tell us about it, you will. I ain’t gonna pry into your secrets.”Bookmark here

“I don’t deserve to keep secrets anymore…”Bookmark here

“It’s not about what you do or don’t deserve Vo.”Bookmark here

“The-“Bookmark here

“You were dead wrong. Berry lost, he didn’t deserve anything after that, he knew that as well as anyone. You don’t get into vore for the respect after all. But you weren’t wrong to fight for him, not because he deserved it but because he was your friend.”Bookmark here

Kobe stood over Vorelando’s slouched figure and extended his arm. The two clasped hands and Kobe pulled Vorelando to his feet.Bookmark here

“We’re friends, aren’t we Vo?”Bookmark here

Any anger left over from the match disappeared from Vorelando’s mind in an instant. Bookmark here

“Of course we are man, till the day we die.”Bookmark here

The two shared a quick embrace that was broken up by the sound of an angry mob banging on the door.Bookmark here

“Now, we have to find a way to get you out of here.”Bookmark here

“I believe I can help with that.”Bookmark here

A man appeared seemingly out of nowhere and spoke to the two of them.Bookmark here

“Who the hell are you?” Vorelando asked.Bookmark here

“That’s Vorge Mendes, the most successful vore agent this side of the Mississippi.”Bookmark here

“Nice to meet you again Mr. Steakhouse, great match out there tonight.”Bookmark here

He schmoozed his way over to Vorelando and put his hands on his shoulders like an ‘uncle’.Bookmark here

“And don’t let him undersell me Vorelando, I’m the most successful vore agent either side of the Mississippi.”Bookmark here

“Look, can you get us out of here or not?”Bookmark here

“Well of course I can but I wanna be upfront with you. The only reason I wanna get you outta this mess is to get you into a whole lot of a bigger one.” He said to Vorelando.Bookmark here

“What are you suggesting.”Bookmark here

“Kid, after that match there isn’t a single college in this country that wouldn’t offer you a scholarship to compete in college vore. I’ve never seen anything like what you just did! The vore scene is competitive, people are willing to sell an arm and a leg to take a chance on people with half your potential.”Bookmark here

“So what you’re saying is…”Bookmark here

“You let me help you get onto a college program and then, when you make it to the pros, I wanna be the guy who negotiates your contract.”Bookmark here

“Deal, but you better get us the hell out of here first.”Bookmark here

“What?!” Kobe exclaimed.Bookmark here

“I didn’t think it would be this easy either.” Vorge replied.Bookmark here

“Why are you agreeing to this Vo? There’s no way you-“Bookmark here

“You said you wouldn’t make me talk.”Bookmark here

Kobe stared at him incredulously.Bookmark here

“I have my reasons Kobe.”Bookmark here

“Fine, I just hope you know what you’re doing.”Bookmark here

Vorge scuttered around behind the two of them, throwing his arms over their shoulders and bringing the three of their faces together.Bookmark here

“The two of you have bright futures ahead of you. You could go anywhere in this world! It’s my job to lead you to the most profitable part of it!”Bookmark here

He looked at both of them with a big grin on his face and they responded with forced smiles of their own.Bookmark here

After a few uncomfortable seconds, he let them go. Bookmark here

*bang*Bookmark here

The door to the locker room creaked, the mob was about to break in.Bookmark here

“So how are you planning to-“Bookmark here

Vorelando was shut up as Vorge lifted up one of the floor tiles revealing a secret passage.Bookmark here

“I never attend a vore match without building one of these beforehand. I’m never losing one of my clients to a mob ever again.”Bookmark here

He pointed towards the hole in the ground.Bookmark here

“Now get in the hole, we’re wasting money making time!”Bookmark here

The three of them rushed down the narrow flight of stairs underneath the locker room, with Kobe closing the entrance over just as the mob broke their way in.Bookmark here
