It has come down to this. Admits the chaos of screaming and attacking angels and demons stood four individuals. Waff the Atheist and D_Dude the Guardian Spirit. Two rebellious souls, ready to defy the foundations of the universe. Ochitsukanai the Angel and Kitty17 the Archangel. Two divine beings, ready to lay down their lives to defend it.
The Atheist had his sights on the archangel. He was tired though and would need some precious few moments to collect himself. D_Dude was all that stood between him and the angels that were poised to strike them down.
"Distract the guard" said the Archangel to his follower. Without hesitation, Ochitsukanai obeys, swinging her mighty greatsword with both arms. Taking a defensive stance the Guardian spirit deflects the blow with his far smaller blade. It was not the size that mattered but how you used it, one might say. Nevertheless the battle weary soul was close to his breaking point. He had to end this fight soon.
Kitty17 charges Waff with all her glory, intent on not giving him another chance to recharge his blasphemous power. Offering no obvious means of defense, he was sure to fall without much effort. However, his body may be frail but his mind was far stronger. And the whole town was his canvas. Before the Archangel could reach him, the Atheist makes a hand gesture, causing a fist shape pillar to rise from the ground, punching the angelic leader in the face. The force of the impact causes her to fall to the side.
D_Dude lands on top of a collection of dead villagers, exhausted from the fight. The gash on his leg was not helping either. Ready to charge him again, Ochi raises her sword intend on splitting the spirit in two. Collecting his second wind, D_Dude jumps to the side, dodging the heavy blade that comes crashing down to the ground. He rolls over to a dead demon grabs his dagger a dagger, lying on the ground besides him. This hellish looking blade was shaped like a jagged tooth, obviously meant to cause excruciating pain to those on its receiving end. Holding onto it with his off hand, D_Dude stands up and attempts to strike.
Another fist comes from the ground. This time, however, Kitty was prepared for it and cuts it in two before it makes contact with her. This would be much easier if she could fly, thus avoiding these blasted obstacles that he's throwing at her but thanks to the wound she received earlier, her wing was far from usable for the moment. None the less, she knew what kind of tricks Waff had up his sleeves, this time and was not gonna fall for them again. As two additional fists come flying from the ground, Kitty barely manages to jump over them and lands mere feet away from her intended target.
Two swords form sparks as they meet in the air. Using his proficient hand, D_Dude takes advantage of his light blade as he forces Ochitsukanai to go onto the defensive. Finally he manages to get in close enough to push her sword to the side and at that moment, his jagged dagger finds its way to her side. Screaming in pain the angel bashes D_Dude away with her left wing. With the dagger still lodged in her side, she dares not to remove it, knowing that the demonic weapon was designed to do more damage, on the way out. Taking advantage of her moment of weakness, D_Dude attacks again, going for the kill.
The Atheist falls on the ground, with one arm in flames. As he watches his limb dissolve away he notices the Archangel standing over him. "I'll give you this one final chance to concede." She says as she points the tip of her scorching blade to his neck. Confident that he was unable to act, Kitty is caught of guard when the ground collapses from under her and she falls down a deep pit.
Ochitsukanai drops down on the ground. Her sword is locked with D_Dudes. Using his weight against hers, the guardian spirit edges his blade closer and closer to her chest. "Farewell" he says as he makes his final push against her. "Believe me... when I say... that this is gonna hurt me... allot more then it's gonna hurt... YOU!" screams the angel back as she pulls the dagger out from her side and rams it into his head.
D_Dude the Guardian Spirit is dead.
Sitting down at the edge of the pit he just made, Waff relaxes his mind to reach out to the Archangel. "It won't be long now" he says quietly to himself. Just as he makes the contact, he's distracted again as he's punched upward by Kitty who came flying out from the hole. Collapsing down at the edge of the mouth, she takes a moment to shake the pain she had to endure while bating her injured wing. Rising up with fire in her eyes, the angry angel lifts up her sword again. "If there's going to be hell after all of this, I'll enjoy sending you down there"
Looking back at her calmly, Waff whispers "To late" as she fades away.
Kitty17 the Archangel is dead.
Thus came the final shock. The Archangel had been defeated. Triumphant, the villagers, in league with rogue demons, drove away the frightened angels from the town. Ochitsukanai, saddened by the losses of the battle, led the survivors back to heaven.
It didn't take long for the town to be restored to its former self. The demons and occasional angel that decided to stay behind, reverted quickly to a more human image. The war between Heaven and Hell continued on different battlefields, eventually destroying them both. With no reinforcements aiding either side, they were both doomed to fail.
Alas. Nothing is eternal. Not even Heaven or Hell. It was certainly not the first afterlives to fade into obscurity and would certainly not be the last. Just like the Greek gods came and went. Just like the Northern Gods were forced to yield to changing times. Nothing is eternal.
So what will happen to this afterlife? This world of Townston? Just like the Atheist promised, it's inhabitants were free to govern themselves. They were given the ultimate freedom of choice. But humanity is a fragile being that can never handle such luxury. Its desire to be bound to limitations will ultimately doom them. As time passed, people forgot all about what had happened. Again they sank into the torpor that was living a village life. With no memories of their death their sense of mortality returned. Since evil souls had no other place to go, crime became a common sight. Organized gangs started to plot about taking over the leadership. Eventually the final thing that was missing in Townston had returned.
The battle for Townston had begun anew.
