Showdown

Over at Flash! Friday, it’s Flashversary. The prompt this time allows almost total freedom, but having to be exactly 150 words instead of within a range sounded like it could be a challenge; I was kind of surprised that it wasn’t really a problem. Here’s my entry for round one.

Showdown

Luna’s jet ripped through the smoke, but it wasn’t fast enough. Thousands had already burned. “No more! Tonight, Orochi dies!”

She rolled to dodge a tongue of flame from the mechanical wyrm, and fired a missile straight down its maw to little effect. She was relieved to see impacts on two of the monster’s other heads.

“Adam! Michiru! Formation Alpha!”

All three screamed “Combine! Guardian Susanoo!” as three machines became one unbelievable warrior.

Orochi ignored the steel samurai and spat a fireball at the hospital. Susanoo dashed into the projectile’s path and drew the Sword of Storms. The flames danced around the heavenly blade until it glowed red.┬áThe blades on the robot’s left gauntlet extended and were connected by a plasma bowstring. The trio fired their sword as an arrow straight into the fusion reactor that was the dragon’s heart. The beast fell to Earth, into its own inferno.
