Episode 16 - Timekiller

Cassandra frowned to herself as she watched the rock fly upwards into the void, in a strange mockery of gravity. 

"Woah.." murmured Lacrecia. "I just tried freezing time, but the two of you started walking super fast! Everything's definitely back-to-front here.."

Cassandra closed her eyes and tried getting a glimpse of the future, unsuccessfully. "Yeah. When I try and look forward, I keep seeing the last few minutes on repeat. Nothing's making sense."

"We're almost there.." the agent interrupted. "See there? That string of reality is the tether of the world where all this darkness came from."

"So we sever the string.. and none of this happened?" Lacrecia asked, clutching Excalibur nervously. The agent nodded slowly, but then her expression turned to shock as she looked behind them.

"INCOMING!!" she screamed, pushing Lacrecia aside.

It was the Worst Kate Five! Coalesced from the severed tentacles that made the journey through the portal with them, she screamed with rage as she charged the trio. Her pale, muscled body reflected the ambient light of their surroundings, but sprouting from her back were shadowy tendrils like the legs of a gigantic and monstrous spider. "NOTHING ESCAPES!" she hissed. 

The Bureau agent fired her finned gun, but the Worst Kate bobbed and weaved, never losing pace. Lacrecia instinctively tried to freeze time around Kate, but instead Kate became a blur of black talons and stabbing tendrils.

"Noooo!" screamed Lacrecia impotently as the agent's bloody body fell to the ground. Light gleamed in the malevolent pools of black that passed for Kate's eyes. 

"TWO TO GO..." came her serpentine voice. A flurry of tendrils erupted from all sides and wrapped around Cassandra's limbs.

"Not her!!" Lacrecia bellowed.

Kate grinned as she stretched out Cassandra into a cruciform, facing Lacrecia. The two women's eyes met, filled with terror. "I love-" whispered Cassandra, before Kate's arm became a gigantic blade and penetrated her body.

Lacrecia felt frozen to the spot. Unable to move or look away. Kate leaned in slowly to Cassandra's ear. "WHERE'S YOUR SAVIOUR, GOD-BITCH..?"

"The.. s-string..." Cassandra whispered.

"WHAT?" Kate said angrily. 

Lacrecia snapped out of her trance as she remembered their plan. ".. And none of this happened"

"BITCH! IT'S TOO LATE!" Kate screamed, throwing Cassandra to the ground.

Lacrecia spun on her heel and charged towards the tether to the Worst World's reality, swinging Excalibur for one mighty blow. 

KLAAAANG!!!

The blade struck the chord, but reverberated from the impact with no obvious damage done. The Worst Kate was gaining ground on her multitude of limbs, face contorted with feral rage. Lacrecia looked back to Cassandra desperately, fearing all was lost. 

"Up... is down.." Cassandra said, clutching her belly as she bled out.

Lacrecia racked her brain while Kate was almost on top of her. 

She spun Excalibur in her hands and lifted it for one last strick. "FUUUUCK YOOOOOOU!!!" she screamed as she brought the flat edge of her sword crashing down upon the tether.

There was an explosion. And everything went white.
