Beyond The Stars
Chapter 205: Second Round. Match Three - Emily vs Papen
Narrator: Emily takes on Papen!
Zonbi: Now before you start fighting, the arena will now change to bring in a new form of chaos!
*Some of the tiles on the arena open up and under them are spike traps*
Zonbi: Step on these and a spike will thrust upward! This will make your sword fighting far more interesting!
Papen: No bother to me.
Emily: It will only make it easier to defeat you.
Zonbi: The arena is set so you may now begin!
*Emily and Papen start slashing their swords at each other but they just keep clashing with neither able to get past the other’s defense*
*Papen pulls out a second sword and Emily jumps back to avoid being slashed*
Emily: Sword. Black.
*Emily’s Ability Sword turns black. Emily charges at Papen and does a diagonal slash. Papen dodges it but a black line of black energy just floats in place where Emily swung her sword*
Emily: That floating energy is just as strong as the slash of my sword.
*Papen pulls out two more swords and now all four of his hands have swords*
Papen: I’ll make this quick.
*They charge at each other while avoiding the spike traps*
*They start slashing at each other but Emily has to block mostly because Papen has four swords*
Emily: (Thinking) If he had just one sword, this would be over quickly! He is efficient with four swords and that is making this fight much more difficult! There must be something I can do to get the upper hand! Perhaps I can confuse him! I could try using my Enigmus leg…
*In a pause between slashing, Emily raises up her right leg*
Papen: What the…!?
*Papen is confused by this but he slashes off her leg. Emily takes advantage of the confusion and slashes off one of Papen’s arms*
Papen: Gahh!! You’d sacrifice an entire leg just to cut off one of my arms!?
Emily: Who says I sacrificed it?
*Emily then pushes Papen into the lingering black energy to do more damage and she then kicks him into a spike trap*
*The spike thrusts upwards and stabs Papen*
*The spike retracts and Papen stands up. He has a significant wound from the spike trap. Emily starts hopping over to her leg*
Papen: I don’t see how you can say that is anything but sacrificing your leg! Truly a stupid decision! Now you’re defenseless!
*Papen charges at Emily as she falls over and barely avoids a spike trap*
Papen: You’re dead!!
*Papen slashes all of his swords at once and Emily blocks with her sword*
Emily: Your slashes don’t have much power to them.
Papen: What did you say!?
Emily: At least compared to mine.
*Emily tries to push Papen’s arms to the side and succeeds as a spike trap raises and cuts off one of Papen’s arms, leaving him with two arms left*
Papen: Damn it!!
*Emily then kicks Papen off of her. She grabs her leg and reattaches it*
Emily: I told you I wasn’t sacrificing my leg. My Enigmus leg can be easily reattached.
*Emily stands up*
Emily: You are weak and now you are down to two arms. You know just how weak you are so you attack others while they are down. I will finish you quickly.
Papen: Shut up!!
*They rush towards each other and then start slashing at each other. Papen is not getting in any hits as Emily easily blocks his attacks*
Papen: (Thinking) I can’t hit her!! Even worse, she is getting closer and closer to getting another hit on me!!
*Papen becomes furious*
Papen: Damn you!!!
Emily: Sword! Red!
*Emily’s sword turns red*
Emily: Say goodbye to another arm!
*Emily’s sword breaks through one of Papen’s swords and cuts off another arm*
*Emily drops her sword and dodges a swing from Papen’s last sword. She then continuously punches Papen in the face*
Emily: See the thing is that you’re just not good enough for this tournament!
*She head-butts Papen as she says that*
Emily: You lack any sort of honor or respect!
*She elbows Papen in the gut as she says that*
Emily: I don’t even know how you got through the first round alive!
*Emily uppercuts Papen to the chin as she says that*
Emily: And now you will die!
*Emily thrusts Papen down on a spike trap and the spike thrusts right through his face and out through the back of his head, causing his immediate death*
Zonbi: Emily wins the fight and she did not disappoint by delivering a fantastically gruesome death to Papen!
*The crowd cheers*
Demon: What an amazing finisher!
Zonbi: Papen only had one arm left but that still makes for a perfectly good zombie!
*Zonbi turns Papen into a zombie*
*Emily walks back to her team*
Emily: I had to let out that frustration.
Keith: Well, I was certainly happy. That guy was a major asshole and not someone I would want to drink with.
Zeth: Good job!
Sasha: Now I will fight two of them at the same time.
*Sasha walks towards the arena*
Narrator: Sasha will face two opponents at once. Will she be able to handle it?
