No matter how many shots I fire, none seem to scathe them. I groan and holster my guns, reaching for the sword hilt I’d equipped earlier, but I pause. I smirk as I clench my mechanical fist, a faint blue spark arcing around my fingers.
“Alright, you ugly bastards. Let’s dance,” I goad.
The screeching of metal against cement rings out as the first hulking beast drags its sword upward and over its head, coming down straight over me. I wait until the last moment before dodging to the side, the sword clanging down and breaking concrete.
I lock my left arm at my side, my mechanical appendage pulsing a bright blue mana-infused light as my mana activates it. The slits down my synthetic light up like a lightbulb as energy courses through my arm.
Making a tight fist, I rush for the beast. I make it right up to its center just as I throw a punch, my blow sending a shockwave that ripples through the monster’s body, blowing it apart into scattered flames the moment it burns up from the mana bursting from my fist.
I turn to see the other beast lunging my way, all of its appendages swinging their blades.
I flip out of the way, moving acrobatically to evade its lethal strikes as it somehow picks up speed.
Ducking quickly, I pull back my fist and ready for another blow. Just as it lunges again, I catch its blade between my metal claws, using all of my strength to push back the gigantic blade and tossing its swing backward.
The beast staggers, attempting to regain its footing, but I'm already closing in. I leap against the giant and come down on it with a mana-propelled strike. Upon impact, the beast catches aflame with blue light, eroding to ash as I land on one knee. Damn, I’m so awesome.
I turn to notice Ezekial has left.
I spin around, looking through the panicking and running crowd. It doesn’t take me long to spot the man with wings in the distance.
I don’t think so, guy.
I growl, leaping off the stage and running after him.
Ezekial glances over his shoulder, noticing me behind him. He halts and raises his hands, forming more of those horrifying creatures. I come running behind him with my mechanical arm stretched forward, a blue pulsing light emitting from it as the sensors from my palm light up.
I snicker. Damn, below the belt was immature, but satisfying.
THOOM! An energy shot blasts from my hand and into the first beast, igniting it with mana and burning it to cinders.
The next two beasts rush my way, much faster than the original ones I’d faced.
