I forgot how strong these bug monsters are. That’s a sentence not many people get to say.
I nailed spider-man right in the spider-eye with my flying super-person super-punch but it didn’t seem to bother him. I think I could have overpowered spider-man but I had three things working against me.
One, I wasn’t just grappling with spider-man, I also had mosquito-face coming at me from the other side. He bashed me in the head so hard my vision went out for a second.
Even so I think I could have handled both of them, 42561’s spells are potent and I know my way around a brawl. The second problem was that the Kia kid was sitting bucking shots off and blasted me in the ass. That didn’t help me.
Still, even asshot and two on one I would have liked my chances that I could have turned it around. There was a third problem though, flannel shirt cast a spell on me that made me confused and clumsy. It was like I was suddenly two bottles of fireball whiskey down in an instant.
I tried to cast a cleansing spell but the words wouldn’t come. I couldn’t concentrate. I felt something stab into me, probably a bug-claw or arm-scythe or whatever the fuck you all killing parts on a magic bug monsters. Whatever it was I felt it get caught on the back of my ribs.
That’s when I realized I was going to die. You know what I thought? “This is stupid.”
I couple times before I thought I might die. Those times I was scared or mad or resigned. The difference in those situations I knew what I was getting into beforehand. This was just dumb. When I first saw the bug people monsters I thought “Oh shit, this again?” Like it was a chore. An inconvenience like when they’re out of shakes at McDonalds.
I got hit in the jaw. Hard. I felt my mouth was filling with blood. Maybe there’s a lesson about not underestimating danger.
I didn’t die obviously because you’re reading this. Who saved me? I did.
Pretty good cliffhanger.
