Beyond The Stars
Chapter 112: The Power Struggle
Narrator: In a valley of the Swamp Underworld.
*In the valley, there lies a fortress. The fortress is inhabited by human-sized spiders and humanoid spiders. However, there is a spider that looks half-human, half-spider. She has short black hair and her eyes look web-like. The human part of her body is covered in a black dress*
Narrator: Ruler of the Spider Demons – Lady Spay.
Random Spider: Lady Spay, the soldiers we sent after Keith were defeated.
Spay: I see.
Spider: We have been told that Keith has been spending time with another male and female.
Spay: (smiling) Well, then why don’t we pay them a visit.
Spider: Yes, my lady.
Spay: We will take care of Keith so we can finally focus our efforts on Kitipede.
Narrator: Somewhere in a cave of the Swamp Underworld.
*In the cave, there are many human-sized centipedes. There are also humans and demons who are under the control of the centipedes*
*Their leader’s appearance is that of what looks like a young teenage human with neck-length blonde hair and her eyes have a gray iris color*
Narrator: Leader of the Centipede Demons – Kitipede.
Kitipede: It appears the spiders have made some commotion at Hirro City. Very interesting.
*She starts walking through a cave tunnel and appears high up in a large room*
*The room appears to be the main room of the cave as there are many tunnels connected to it as well as a large spring at the bottom of it*
Kitipede: My centipedes!
*All of the centipedes stop what they are doing and pay attention to her*
Kitipede: I can feel it! That this power struggle will finally go somewhere and our side will gain the upper hand!!
*The centipedes cheer*
Kitipede: We will execute the spiders!! We will execute Commander Moss!!
*The centipedes cheer even more*
Kitipede: We will take control in this three-way power struggle!!!
*The cheering gets even louder*
*Kitipede then starts walking back through the tunnel she came from*
Kitipede: (Grinning) I think it’s time I take a little trip.
Narrator: In a city known as Telecouch City, it is led by Commander Moss. Nobody knows whether he is human or demon.
*A man is sitting at his desk. He has short light brown hair, a black beard and mustache. He is wearing a gray uniform. He is 6 feet tall*
Narrator: Head of Telecouch City – Commander Moss.
Commander Moss: The spiders and the centipedes will die. They think they can challenge me for power but they can’t. I will crush them into dust.
*His phone rings and he answers it*
CM: This is Commander Moss.
???: Sir, it’s Major Tarres. Major Smithy and I have captured some spiders and centipedes.
CM: Good. You will begin testing our secret weapon on them.
Major Tarres: Yes, commander. Would you like to join us?
CM: Indeed, I would. I will be coming in half an hour.
MT: Cool. We will make the preparations.
*Commander Moss leans back in his chair and puts one leg on his desk. He then taps his fingers*
CM: (Sinister smile) Excellent.
*From each of their locations, all three leaders in the power struggle make a declaration*
Lady Spay, Kitipede, and Commander Moss: I will win this power struggle!
Narrator: All three sides of the power struggle are known. With the heroes caught in the middle of it, how will they affect the outcome?
