Beyond The Stars
Chapter 121: Emily, Kurt, and Joe vs Kitipede
Narrator: With Keith’s battle with Lady Spay over, it’s time to check out the other major battle.
*Kitipede snaps the neck of a random demon on the streets of the city. She is then confronted by Emily, Joe, and Kurt*
*Kitipede then turns her neck sideways to look at them with a sinister smile*
Emily: Kitipede, right?
Kitipede: Oh? Do you want to fight me?
*Joe forms a lightning bolt and throws it at Kitipede*
Joe: That’s right! Stop this assault on the city!
*Despite that Kitipede is like a human, she gets on all fours and quickly scurries over to the heroes as a centipede would. She is able to avoid Joe’s lightning bolt*
Emily: Woah! A humanoid being should not move like that!
Kitipede: I know my appearance doesn’t show it, but I’m still a centipede demon!
*Kitipede quickly gets up and punches Joe and kicks Kurt in the jaw. Emily uses her Slasher Sword and tries to slash Kitipede but Kitipede blocks it*
*Emily has a shocked face, Kitipede smiles and then gut kicks her which sends her back. Kitipede then jumps onto the side of a building*
Kitipede: So none of you died. I’m impressed as that makes you the strongest I have faced so far in this city.
Kurt: I can promise you that we are not pushovers!
Kitipede: Then continue to impress me!
*Kurt releases a lot of aura whips at Kitipede but she simply jumps off the side of the building towards Kurt and avoids them*
*Kurt tries a flame aura punch but Kitipede rolls into a ball shape as she comes down and Kurt misses and then Kitipede smashes into Kurt*
*Right after, she unrolls and is then engaged by Emily who is using her dual daggers. Joe creates freezing rain to ice the street*
Emily: I’ll stab these into your limbs so you can’t go anywhere!
Joe: And good luck moving on an icy street!
*Kitipede starts slipping which allows Emily to get some hits in with her daggers, though she is not able to stab them into the limbs in a way that prevents Kitipede from moving. Kitipede looks like she is in pain*
Emily: I bet it’s hurting a lot! This time, I will stop you completely!
*Soon, Kitipede regains her balance and then knocks the daggers out of Emily’s hands and then kicks her into a car*
Emily: Aah! Damn!
Kitipede: Don’t underestimate me! I am the leader of the centipede demons!
*Joe creates multiple razor hail clouds and Kitipede is surprised at first and ends up getting cut by the razor hail coming down on her*
*She jumps out and quickly runs towards Joe and rapidly punches him until he is knocked to the ground*
Kitipede: I don’t like what you just did to me so I think I will kill you first.
*Both Kurt and Emily attack Kitipede from behind*
*She roll jumps behind them and kicks them both in the back*
Kitipede: Don’t you see? You humans have no chance against me.
*Emily has a look of fear in her eyes*
Emily: Is she right? Are we humans truly inferior to demons? We are failing in a 3 against 1.
Narrator: Meanwhile at the entrance of the Swamp Underworld.
*Korobu enters the Swamp Underworld*
Korobu: It’s been a while since I have been here.
Korobu: I think I will have some fun here.
Narrator: The three heroes are having trouble with Kitipede. Meanwhile, Korobu has entered the Swamp Underworld. What is he planning?
