lichter vs salle: The Conclusion
salle knew that it was now or never. He had already lost too much blood from beforehand so failure was not an option. As he dived to tackle lichter, he noticed that the Jaedong bombs had landed on the ground and had opened up. salle knew these bombs were dangerous but he still had no idea what they did. Just when he thought he was in the clear however, he saw now why the TL offense laboratory advised him not to use these.
As soon as the bombs opened up, a hoard of robotic-like mutalisks just flew out of the bombs and started viciously shooting glaives at both lichter and salle. The multiple glaives from every angle felt just like bee stings and they were more than enough to cause a panic as lichter and salle both quickly dived for some form of shelter and protection.
LICHTER: THE FUCK IS THIS?! ARE YOU TRYING TO GET US BOTH KILLED?!
SALLE: Maybe! At this point, you have no idea what I’m capable of!
Whatever salle had planned on doing had backfired, but he wasn’t about to allow lichter to take advantage of his mistake by feigning weakness. The mutalisks were relentless and kept on attacking both of them without any signs of stopping. Realizing that he had do something and quick, salle pulled out the last remaining bombs in his possession: the Bisu bombs, and threw them to the ground. Upon impact, the bombs burst open and a wave of corsairs came out and instantly decimated every last muta in the air. As soon as the last muta screamed and disappeared, the corsairs became inactive and fell to the ground.
Even though all the mutas had finally perished, salle took his time getting up just in case the corsairs had missed one. Unfortunately for salle, this was the wrong move. As soon as he got up, he noticed that a blade had pierced through his abdomen and that at the end of the handle, holding it was lichter. salle tried his best to grab the blade and pull it out but lichter was far too strong for him.
As an instant reaction to the stabbing, salle looked up and met lichter’s gaze. Thanks to the mutas, lichter had suffered severe injuries to his face and body as well. Blood was dripping down lichter’s face, arms, and legs, but the menacing look in his eyes is what took away the last of salle’s fighting spirit. As salle began to lose his balance, he slowly began falling onto his knees as his consciousness began to fade away. The second lichter saw that salle was no longer conscious, he pulled out the blade in one swift motion and then kicked salle’s lifeless body onto the floor.
LICHTER: Well… He’s dead. (turns around to face Chapa) But I’m preeeeeeeeeeetty sure he’s dead too…
lichter slowly walked over to the area where Chapa was stabbed and stared at the lifeless body before him. He slowly leaned in, cupped his ear to Chapa’s chest, and waited. After about ten seconds, lichter could clearly tell that Chapa wasn’t breathing anymore. After a big sigh, lichter got up grabbed a nearby cloth and started wiping away all the blood on his face and body.
LICHTER: Well… salle is dead… Chapa’s dead… This did not go as planned…
As lichter talked, he continued to wipe off any blood that had gotten on him or came from his injuries. Suddnely, lichter stopped all of a sudden, dropped the cloth, and turned his head toward the corner of the wall.
LICHTER: Or did it? With both of them gone… Someone new needs to be in charge of Liquipedia now.
As soon as those words left lichter’s mouth, a shadow emerged from the corner. Upon revealing himself to the light of the room, the figure showed an evil smile that could only be matched by the one lichter had on his face.
NOVEMBERSTORM: Everything went exactly as planned.
LICHTER: I told you to trust me.
R1CH vs Heyoka: The Conclusion
R1CH had planned it all out in his head. He would pretend to dive for the gun, then once Heyoka thought he had him cornered, he would swiftly dive out of the way and plunge the dagger straight into Heyoka’s spine. R1CH knew that a forceful thrust and a quick turn would be more than enough to kill Heyoka. Unfortunately however, he did not account for the fact that Heyoka too, had a plan worked out.
Heyoka had planned it all out in his head. He would let R1CH dive for the gun, then once R1CH thought he had him cornered, he would swiftly dive out of the way and pull out his other gun and isnta-kill R1CH by dual shooting rapidly in R1CH’s direction. Heyoka knew that R1CH could not react as fast as he could and that timing was on his side. Unfortunately however, he did not account for the fact that R1CH too, had a plan worked out.
The two men both pounced forward at the same time. However, it did not matter what R1CH or Heyoka had planned out beforehand because all hell broke loose the second the men smashed their heads against each other, lost their balance and got knocked back. The impact was so strong that both men felt woozy and neither men could see properly for a good ten seconds.
It was a game of rock-paper-scissors now. Whoever would be the first one to take action had the upper hand, but neither men could no longer initiate what they had planned out. From here on out, it would all be improvised. R1CH was the first one to stabilize. Realizing that time was of the essence, he quickly pulled out his dagger and lunged forward at Heyoka. R1CH saw that Heyoka was still trying to shake off what had just happened so he took full advantage of the situation. He got right up close to Heyoka, grabbed his right arm, and plunged the dagger straight through Heyoka’s right wrist to disable the use of his right hand.
HEYOKA: GGGRRRRRRAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! MY WRIST!
Heyoka knew he couldn’t just stand there and do nothing. Deciding that it was his turn to retaliate, he lifted his uninjured left arm and attempted to elbow smash R1CH’s skull. However, R1CH foresaw such a move, blocked the elbow with his right arm, and drove his left fist into Heyoka’s ribs. Heyoka doubled over in pain and upon seeing that Heyoka could no longer defend himself, R1CH decided to further his advantage even more. He pulled out the dagger that was plunged into Heyoka’s right wrist, and stabbed Heyoka’s left wrist this time. The effect was immediate: Heyoka could no longer use his hands.
HEYOKA: GGGRRRRRRAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! R1CH YOU FUCKING LITTLE- I WILL KILL YOU FOR THIS!
R1CH: Sorry bud, you’re in no position to make threats right now. I have the upper… (snickers) Hand.
Something inside Heyoka had snapped. He was done standing still and taking hits. Knowing full well that his arms were now incapacitated, he decided to use the only things at his disposal: his legs. Heyoka jumped into the air, spun around and smashed his leg straight into R1CH’s left shoulder. The effects of the impact were immediate, as R1CH was thrown off his balance and flew straight into the wall and hit his back.
Heyoka wasted no time and pounced on R1CH again. But R1CH was able to regain his composure and cross-arm blocked Heyoka’s next kick. R1CH then retaliated by throwing himself onto ground, lifted both his legs, and double kicked Heyoka out of his way. Upon impact, Heyoka flew straight into a desk and landed spine first into a sharp corner. After wobbling for about three seconds, Heyoka lost his balance and fell to the floor.
The disadvantage was too much for Heyoka to overcome. A battle of two arms vs two arms and two legs was far too difficult given R1CH’s flexibility and mobility. Heyoka tried to his best to crawl away so he could formulate a new plan but R1CH was not going to give him that option. Ignoring the throbbing pain in his back, R1CH dove forward with the last of his strength and grabbed Heyoka. In a matter of seconds, R1CH had Heyoka in a fierce headlock.
Heyoka struggled furiously as he desperately tried to get out R1CH’s grasp but it was no use. The damage he had sustained from the battle was too much. With his wrists bleeding profusely and his body aching all over, Heyoka no longer had the strength nor the energy to fight back R1CH’s hold. But it was the same for R1CH as well. R1CH was using the last bit of strength he had left to keep Heyoka in place. If Heyoka somehow escaped from this, R1CH knew that he would be done for since he had no backup plan.
Heyoka continued to struggle as best as he could but he was rapidly losing air in his lungs. No longer able to breathe and unable to think clearly, Heyoka knew it would be a matter of seconds before he passed out. R1CH was using everything he had to make sure Heyoka didn’t break from his grasp. As he felt Heyoka’s resistance get weaker and weaker with every passing second, he finally let out a smile: He had won… And then he heard a noise.
R1CH thought for a second that perhaps he had just imagined it. But a few seconds later, he knew that he should have been more alert. It was all too quick for R1CH to process what had happened. All he knew was that a dagger flew in midair straight out of nowhere and stabbed him right in the back where his spine was. The impact was so fierce that R1CH lost all his strength and released Heyoka from his grasp; his biggest mistake. Taking advantage of R1CH being distracted Heyoka used the last of his remaining strength and kicked off from the ground and did a backflip and lander on R1CH’s shoulders. Heyoka knew his wrists were of no use to him anymore so he used the only weapon he had left: his legs.
With a fierce one-two step, Heyoka wrapped his legs around R1CH’s neck. Then, with a swift and quick jerking motion, snapped R1CH’s neck and pulled R1CH straight into the ground. A loud thump came about and both men were lying on the floor now. Heyoka took his time releasing the grip he had on R1CH’s neck, then slowly got up from the ground.
HEYOKA: Heh... Didn't see that one coming did you? You should know by now that my legs are the strongest part of my body. The second I knew that you had let your guard down, I pulled the dagger out of my left wrist, flung it straight at the wall in front of me and made it bounce off twice so that it would end up into your back. And now... Now I'm the one... Laughing about-
Unfortunately for Heyoka however, he could no longer say anything else. Initially backed by the adrenaline during the fight, Heyoka felt the last of his strength fade away now that it was all over. Suffering too much from the heavy blood less and all the damage he took, Heyoka lost consciousness and fell down upon R1CH’s lifeless body. All the while not being able to notice that a shadow lurked in the corner and had been watching everything unfold the entire time.
Plexa vs Nazgul: The Conclusion
Author's Note: If you read chapter 19, then you should know that Plexa put a mutha flippin bullet right through Nazgul’s skull…
Over in the prison chambers, S was furiously trying his very best to get out of his solitary confinement. Although he tugged and pulled at the iron door handle as best as he could, it would not budge. S was trapped.
S: YOU’VE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME! I PAID EXTRA DAMN MONEY FOR THESE DOORS BUT NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD I HAVE EXPECTED HIM TO TURN ON ME LIKE THIS!
Overwhelmed with rage and anger, S lashed out at the door as he screamed at the top of his lungs.
S: I WILL GET OUT, DO YOU HEAR ME?! I WILL GET OUT AND I WILL SKIN ALL OF YOU ALIVE FOR THIS! I KNOW A1 DIDN’T ACT ALONE IN THIS. I WILL PERSONALLY HUNT DOWN AND DESTROY EACH AND EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU IF IT TAKES THE LAST OF MY-
Suddenly, the door moved from the other side. As the door swung open and the light showed who was behind it, S suddenly froze in his tracks as if time had stopped all of a sudden. At the sight of the mysterious figure that had opened the door, S felt all of his life just drain away as he stood completely still, unable to move a single muscle.
???: You need to shut the fuck up like right now.
???: Good. That’s better.
S: …I …I… I didn’t think you would be here-
???: And now it’s talking again. For fucks sakes, one of you just go and shut him up.
At ???’s command, two guardsmen hurriedly walked into the room and grabbed ahold of S as one of them covered S’ mouth with his hands.
???: Take me to my chambers.
Once again, at ???’s command, the two men acted quickly and swiftly. One lifted S onto his shoulder and walked out of the room as the other quickly ran over to S’ chamber so he could open the door for ???. Once the doors were open. ??? stepped inside and walked over to the center of the room and sat down at a giant armchair.
???: Place him across from me. Tape him down completely. He doesn’t deserve to move.
The two men did as they were told. S was placed in an armchair across from ??? and then had his entire body taped shut onto the chair. They made sure to tape S’ arms, legs, and whole body to make sure he couldn’t move an inch. When they were finished, they got up and stood still like statues next to S as they waited for their next orders.
???: That will be all. Leave now.
After bowing their heads, the two men quickly left the room and closed the heavy double doors behind them. As soon as the doors closed, ??? got up and walked over to S’ desk. During this entire time, sweat was falling profusely from S’ face as his eyes frantically looked around everywhere around the room. The moment he dreaded had finally arrived.
???: What a god damn mess you’ve made of this whole thing.
??? grabbed S’ glass, poured himself some wine, and turned to face S.
???: I let you sit at my desk, I let you drink my wine, I let you have full access to all I own… I had you run this place in my stead as me… But you’ve fucked up so hard that I am ashamed of the fact that I even considered you as an apprentice in the first place.
???: You are nothing but a broken doll that is beyond fixing. You are a failure and a clear representation of my flaw in choosing you as my replacement. Mutiny? Fucking please. Such a word does not even exist in my dictionary. If I had remained, the only words that my agents would know would be “obedience” and “servitude”.
???: I realize now that I went away for too long. You’ve become drunk with power and have now become an embodiment of pure utter trash. You’ve fooled yourself into thinking that you’re me and that you run this shit. You’ve been playing the role of me for so long that you no longer remember who you are anymore.
After his last sentence, ??? reached into the very bottom drawer of S’ desk and pulled out a handgun. He then closed the drawer, picked up his glass of wine walked back over to his chair, sat down, and pointed the gun at S.
???: I will ask you again since you’ve seem to have forgotten. Who am I?
???: Who. Am. I?
S: …Y …You are… You are General S…
???: And who are you?
Fake S: …
S: (smashing the wine on the table) WHO ARE YOU?!
Fake S: …I …I don’t know… I-I don’t r-remember…
S: Exactly. You’ve lost your own identity. All because you foolishly convinced yourself that you’re me. You're not me. You will NEVER be me.
As he uttered those last words, S slowly got up walked over to where fake S was sitting and dropped his head down so their gaze met on eye level. S looked at fake S with menacing eyes and a smile fake S hoped to never see again.
S: A failure will always be a failure. A broken doll will always be a broken doll. I’m afraid… I have absolutely no use for you anymore.
With that, S cocked his gun back, and pulled the trigger.
