Sugar on Snails
Ki:Principle – KITTY HAWK
Kitty glanced contained in the room, daring a quick peek across the door jam to get an concept of what he can be up in opposition to when he charged into the room. His ruse – to be captured and dragged into the compound had been a comparatively easy one, and had been offered fairly properly when he had appeared so helpless and human.
He’d managed to change his form sufficient that his cat-like ears and his different demonic hybrid options had modified sufficient to permit him to resemble the guise of an atypical, backyard selection human teen boy, that had been harassed and wounded by the forces outdoors the partitions of the demon’s fortress.
However the outdated leather-based manufacturing unit, regardless of being run down and graffiti lined, was nonetheless as stable a construction as any you may need. And Kitty had managed to trace down the unsavory emanations from the place with scent and sight and a horrible goosebumped feeling he’d get when he got here near the place. Even now, that his physique had been given time to regulate, his pores and skin crawled with the corruption and unfavourable darkish energies that had been coursing by way of this place. Human sacrifices had been carried out right here, and there was a cyst that had been opened and was draining from one of many darkish outer planes and into this one.
Kitty’s youthful brother, Fernal, had been taken, and he’d tried to search out the younger prisoner, however had solely managed to reach too late – the younger boy’s corpse left half eaten and the stays left had been defiled, present in a ditch not too removed from this place – this fortress of darkness. That had put Kitty on a mission of vengeance.
The monster’s drone like human servants had brutishly dragged Kitty into the fortress, and thrown him into the basement, the place a cage had been set as much as maintain the sacrifices, or meals cattle, both one. He was the one one within the basement when he was left there by the drones, and it was simply positive by him.
With focus and can, he resumed his battle hybrid form, that of a pale-skinned, lean muscled Neko Demon hybrid. His drab, torn clothes modified to the leather-based battle skirt that was belted at his waist, and slitted down his left aspect. The fireplace-fox fur appeared, draped round his shoulders. His ears pricked golden and hardened into the pierced and tipped, seemingly plated, battle prepared kind that he took when he was going into hazard. And to prime all of it, his golden sword had appeared on his again.
If he’d been wanting in a mirror, he’d have discovered himself fairly pleasing to the attention, with the snakebite lip piercings accentuating the multi-hued lips of his battle prepared kind. His easy, pale chest displayed an virtually new and uncooked wanting temporal tattoo, that appeared to have an Alice in Wonderland reference, etched within the scroll work. All of this gave him a harmful and edgy look – a creature of lethal grace.
You didn’t mess together with his household. One thing had. And it was about to pay the value.
His sword lower in a flashing field – three slices – one up, one sideways, and one down. It hire a gap within the chain-link cage, with sparks and the ends of the lower metal hyperlinks giving off a faint glow, like heated steel; the sword had simply sliced by way of it prefer it was nothing greater than heat butter.
He stepped by way of, red-leather fight boots making hardly a sound, as he stalked out and up the crumbling concrete stairs to the doorway. He gave the door a convincing kick, and it boomed open, almost coming off its hinges, as he stalked out, and was instantly attacked by the two drones guarding the doorway. Each had been white males of their late 20s, sporting grubby t-shirts and torn denims. Every was constructed like a weightlifter, every carrying a baseball bat or size of pipe.
With a low dive, he sliced by way of the achilles tendons of 1, and introduced his sword up and into the neck of the opposite, even because the brute had been rearing again to swing on the nimble neko warrior. Neither one appeared capable of discuss or give a cry, aside from sharp grunts of ache and alarm from one, and moist gurgles of bloody foam from the opposite.
Kitty left them quivering and bleeding on the ground.
He sprang up and loped up the stairway to the following ground, his boots making solely the slightest of echoing sounds within the stairwell.
He got here to a touchdown, the place the place he encountered 2 drones, and three others that had been stationed upwards on the steps main upwards. The bigger three of them in varied shades and prints of t-shirts and denims – normal avenue clothes.
Two of them, on the higher stairs, had been leaner, and had leather-based biker jackets, with lengthy hair and beards. These two had been armed with knives and sported snake-like fangs. They hissed and weaved forwards and backwards as the three brutish drones moved in with their clean staring eyes, to assault the lone swordsman.
The three bigger ones tried to encircle kitty as he got here out of the stairwell, and made grabbing arm swings, as if making an attempt to grapple with him, and immobilize him. Kitty figured they’d play tug of warfare together with his limbs in the event that they managed to get ahold of him. However he was quick and versatile and dodged their makes an attempt, as he slides open the abdomen of 1, weaved in to place his sword within the throat of the opposite, and leaped into the face of the third, gouging the drone’s eyes out with sharp onerous kitty claws, popping the eyeballs like ripe grapes.
Kitty leaped up and levered himself off the sagging shoulders of the third attacker, and as he did a leap within the air, he barely averted the knives thrown by the 2 snakey-like skinny males on the upwards stairs. He then landed virtually soundlessly, grasped his sword from its sticking level within the throat of the 2nd thug-drone, and drew it out, simply in time to defend in opposition to extra thrown knives that got here crusing at him from the foes on the steps. He deflected them after which leaped excessive within the air, the fanged males leaping at him as nicely, with spectacular motions.
Certainly one of them spit some sort of venom from his mouth, catching the younger Neko throughout his face with the acidic. Kitty hissed and got here down, slicing into the snake’s face, lopping off half of his head with the blow, which hissed and glowed for a second just like the fencing within the basement cage had. There was the scent of cauterized flesh, and the stays of a decayed mind and a coiled… one thing.. writhed within the stays of the snake-fanged man’s mind pan.
The opposite snake-man weaved and moved prefer it was extra cautious, giving Kitty a narrow-slitted look, as he tried the venom trick, as had his companion, spraying the nasty secretions in an arc, that Kitty weaved himself in an virtually unimaginable contortion to keep away from, and he managed to remain away from it, touchdown with a foot on the wall, after which leaping from there and spearing the snake-man within the chest, driving his sword clear by way of the blackened coronary heart of the attacker. The compromised human snake-man tried to chew Kitty, however couldn’t transfer, as his coronary heart shredded itself in opposition to the golden blade that pierced it.
Kitty grabbed maintain of the soiled T-shirt that the snake thug wore, and ripped it away, getting as a lot of the aspect that wasn’t drenched in heart-blood as he might, to wipe the nasty stinging spittle off. It it had gotten in his eyes, he may need been blind, or wishing he was. It left deep red-patchs of stinging flesh, with little boils the place the very best focus had been. His pure therapeutic elements and resistance to such issues had protected him considerably, however nonetheless it will be hours earlier than his therapeutic would heal the stinging pores and skin and flesh again to its former easy, unblemished state. He was fortunate that it hadn’t gotten into his blood and poisoned him both.
He cleaned off his blade on the dying creature’s denims after which regarded upwards into the stairwell. He loped up the following two flights of stairs and didn’t meet any important resistance. One other snake-man – which he sliced open from crotch to throat in a single transfer, earlier than he leapt over him and as much as the highest ground.
There was a major change within the prime ground. It was like one thing out of the film “Aliens”, the place there have been all kinds of webbing and chitinous plates and secretions having been grafted to the partitions, with oozing, and foul smelling net and slime lined surfaces. His sword began to glow a uninteresting reddish gold, and its tip sizzled because it lower by way of the webbing and the unusual shell-like plates that had been blocking the doorway to the highest ground.
He pressed by way of, and stepped onto an extended, clear ground, save for the continuance of the chitinous shell-like constructions and the lots of webbing. He might see the stays of beasts and males caught within the webs, with bulbous spiders bigger than a human’s head crawling alongside the webs, feasting on the unlucky creatures that had been introduced in as meals. Kitty almost gagged with the charnel home smells.
He noticed a kind, wrapped in shadows, on the center of the lengthy store ground, its physique that of a spider the dimensions of an honest sized sofa, with the pinnacle and a part of the physique of a blond lady.The hair swept again and Kitty might see that the ‘lady’ wasn’t precisely that any longer – her head was mutated into one thing that half-resembled a canine. Its mouth gaped broad, a maw of one thing otherworldly, with demonic sharp tooth and a crimson masks overlaying its jaw and nostril, with slightly coronary heart formed into the nostril piece.
Kitty was repulsed by the sight, however he didn’t again off. This was the factor that had killed Fernal.
This factor needed to die.
As Kitty began to warily stalk across the ground, he heard the crunching of his boots over cracking and brittle issues. He glanced down and located that there have been finger bones, facial bones, toes and the like – all of the small bones of the human physique or fragments of skull, that had been like stepping on fortune cookies. Additionally, the our bodies of lifeless spiders had been laying right here and there, and one factor that appeared odd, he might see scorch marks on the ground, and proof of blast marks on the partitions, like a fireplace had been lit right here .. greater than as soon as. He narrowed his eyes after which understood, as he leaped to the aspect and behind a pillar as a gout of flame unfold out from the pinnacle of the dog-faced blonde headed creatures face. “INTRUDER!!! I SMELL MEAT!! I SHALL SCORCH YOU! And HAVE YOU FOR ALICE’S FEAST!!!”
He might barely perceive the creatures speech at first, with slavering and the sound of tongue not meant for human speech being employed for the duty. He felt the warmth of the blast movement across the pillar, and heard the crackle of spiderwebs and chitin as he leapt out and rolled in the direction of the abomination. The demon fired one other gout of its magical flames at Kitty. And he rolled proper underneath it and right into a sheltered part of concrete wall and an outdated iron-sided stroll in oven, that had been used for warmth testing one thing in buildings hay-day.
Kitty didn’t keep nonetheless, however an explosion of magical hearth surrounded him with a whoosh and horrible power, with harsh warmth and brilliance engulfing the demonic hybrid with a rage from the netherworld. “ALICE COOK YOU GOOD KITTY BOY! NOW NOW NOW!! “
Her voice was hideous, however and the flames would have decreased most people or regular felines to a charred hunk of meat and burnt flesh. Because it was, Kitty was left unscathed, as a result of his Demon Fox Fur, and his innate magical resistance. His lengthy pale locks drifted round him within the wake of the new air, and momentary inrush of oxygen. Then he leaped up, his arms open broad, and landed on the again of the beast. It screamed and tried to shake him off, smashing into concrete pillars that had been bolstered with metal rebar. And leaping onerous up in opposition to the cieling, making an attempt to smash or dislodge the kitty, as he sank his claws into the bulbous flesh of the spider creature.
Alice swiveled her head 180 levels and tried to chew Kitty, however he gripped her head with one hand, by the hair, and swung his katana with the opposite. There was a smooth, snicking sound, as bone and flesh parted. After which the sound of oozing fluids splashing on the ground began to fountain out. Kitty leaped again off the physique because it began to thrash round, headless and insane. The demonic physique didn’t realize it had died but. And so the pinnacle drooped however.. Someway.. Nonetheless began speaking.. “ALICE NO MORE! ALICE NEED NEW HOST!”
Kitty regarded in disgust on the factor, and dropped it on the ground, watching the bulbous head-thing roll round. He took his sword, and raised it excessive, then with one brutal swoop down, he severed the pinnacle in two, and there was a sound of one thing .. like an enormous bubble popping. The spider-like bulbous physique popped and slumped, silent, and the pinnacle that was Alice began to wither, as its essence fled to the decrease planes the place it was spawned.
Trying round, a fireplace began the place the spider physique and the pinnacle had been laying, like noxious fluids had undergone a chemical response upon the factor’s dying, and now sought to immolate your entire lair. Fearing for the approaching explosion, Kitty ran at one of many outdated home windows and leapt by way of, hovering by way of the air. He angled and formed his physique and used the ability of the Fox Fur, and managed to achieve the river, some 300 yards away, because the outdated manufacturing unit exploded in a conflagration that would solely be defined the following day as a gas-main leak.
Kitty didn’t hassle going again to the place. From all he heard by way of the information, the fireplace burned so sizzling, that it melted every little thing right down to glass – your entire constructing was only a smoking glass lined gap now.
Kitty had sheathed his sword, and determined he wanted to stroll the earth for some time, and see if there have been any spawn that had gotten away earlier than the dying of “Alice”. He wanted to know.
As a result of Alice had been manner too simple to kill, and there is perhaps one thing extra sinister on the market that had been accountable for his brother’s dying. He was going to search out out. And Vengeance can be his.
