A voice echoed from the portal behind the guns. “So, Sword what are you going to do? Move forward and you’re in range of my guns. Move backwards and my dogs will tear you to shreds.”
The Sword turned to his partner with a grin. Or we can take door number three.
The dogs drew closer. The Sword jumped backwards off the ledge with his blade in hand. Revelator grabbed Pantheon’s arm and pulled her over along with him.
“What are you doing?” she screeched.
The blade grew to the size of a surfboard. The Sword pulled himself on top of it, stood, and pressed down to magnetize his boots as he flew up to catch Revelator and Pantheon.
Revelator landed squarely behind him and latched onto his arm. Pantheon caught the blunt edge, and the Sword had to pull her up in front of him. He held her shoulder. “Don’t worry, I’ve got you.”
The Sword looked up. About a hundred feet up, a patch of blue sky smiled at him through a hole in the roof of the cave. His blade soared upwards. The Sword pointed his blade downwards at an angle.
Pantheon asked, “What are you doing?”
“Setting up my shot.” The Sword pointed the blade at the row of mechanical rifles and fired an energy beam.
The Sword’s blade soared out of the cave ahead of a magnificent explosion.
Pantheon turned and wrapped her arms around the Sword. He sent her a stern look, and she released her grip.
