The expedition team continues to fight against the Longarm apes. Chaotic yells, explosions, and howls littered the battlefield. Mikoto can hear it.
Looking at the other side of the forest where humanoid and beast figures can vaguely be seen, Mikoto grinned after listening for a short while.
“Sister Fei Fei’s side looks like it’s doing fine…”
She turned her attention back towards the Longarm ape standing not far away from her. She restrained her smile and she focused harder on her current target.
She brushed her bangs and static flickered between her fingers, the flickering electrical light dazzled her countenance, making her shine with an impossible sheen.
The Longarm ape in front of her wailed with savage flashes in its eyes. The brutal aura coming from it gave indubitable clues that it’s starting to get anxious because it can also hear the dying sounds of it’s comrades.
The Longarm ape is absolutely livid and it showed this by drumming its chest at Mikoto.
“A monkey through and through, drumming its chest whenever it turns aggressive…”
Mikoto glanced at the Longarm Ape and she raised her arms. Clapping it and subsequently parting her palms, bluish-white lightning danced between her palms in a radiant display of power.
“I think it’s high time you return to a zoo!”
The electrical current between her palms expanded in less than a few seconds to become a big mess of electrical discharge.
The corner her lips curled into a smile after she finished channeling her power. She lobbed the orb of lightning at the ape, it flew while carrying the condensed power of a storm.
The orb of lightning churned the environment, dust shirked away, the soil got disintegrated, and boulders got thrown around by the sheer force of her attack. Even the sound it emitted will intimidate anyone!
The terrifying attack caused the fur on the ape to stand on its ends, like an attacked porcupine. It released a low growl and it charged at the attack after winding itself up. It left afterimages before the two met in a glorious collision.
The lightning attack got shattered but the blur appeared from inside the explosion, she could see the ape swinging its arm, relatively unharmed from the attack.
“What a tough arm…”
The beast retrieved its arms and Mikoto can’t help expressing her shock. The creature actually used its own body to block and the attack did little to harm the monster. The arms on this creature are probably very durable judging from the results.
A flash of light and Mikoto covered herself in lightning. She stomped the ground and she conducted the lightning she had mustered up into the ground. Like a wide-spread net, the lightning traveled towards the Longarm Ape.
The lightning ravaged the lands. Shrieking, the beast pounded its arms on the ground and it swiftly disappeared. Appearing in the air, a metallic shine appeared on its arms before it disappeared again.
The next time it showed itself, it was already at Mikoto’s side.
It flailed its arm at Mikoto’s waist, splitting the air as it made its way towards her. If this attack connected then it’s game over for Mikoto.
Flinching slightly, she stomped one more time but it’s not a lightning attack this time. It’s a tidal wave of iron sand.
Like minuscule bees, the tidal wave of iron sand formed a solid fortress wall beside her, blocking the attack from the Longarm Ape.
The arm hammered the fortress-like iron wall, dispersing part of the iron wall in a shocking display of strength. The arm even managed to split the iron wall in half as the attack came before Mikoto.
Her pupils shrunk, she backed off with two steps. This action saved her because the Longarm ape attack missed by a few centimeters. It stopped because the Longarm ape’s arms weren’t long enough, not because it ran out of momentum.
Its arm was stuck in the compromised iron wall, the ape can’t barge past the iron wall since the wall is not completely destroyed. It’s a hilarious scene but that was a close call for Mikoto.
If the Longarm ape had enough intelligence, it would probably cry because it failed to live up to its name, its arms weren’t long enough…
Mikoto felt a cold drop of sweat rolling down the side of her head. With a stiff look, she felt the arm brush past her face and that sent a chill down her spine.
The attack almost hit her, in the face…
When she returned to her senses, anger climbed up her face.
“You aimed for the face!”
Her smile is one of utter anger. She grabbed a coin and lightning started crackling and flickering all around her. A sense of dread appeared in the ape, it hurriedly retreated after breaking free from the iron wall.
It was too late, it withdrew its arm and an orange laser came incinerated a bigger hole through the iron wall and it landed squarely on the ape. With no time to evade, it raised its arms to shield itself.
The ape howled in pain after the accelerated projectile made contact with its arms. With its tough defense, the ape got sent into the sky but its arms are only slightly burned from the attack. Adjusting itself in midair, the ape was thinking about sending a counterattack when it saw a very scary scene that caused it to whimper.
Standing there, a bigger lightning orb is currently spinning in high velocity, the surrounding air got sucked into the ensuing vortex. A dreadful amount of heat is being generated by the lightning orb.
In an instant, with a brilliant blue explosion of light, Mikoto threw the lightning bolt at the ape who couldn’t dodge in time.
The lightning electrocuted the beast while the heat burned the ape, there was nothing the ape could do when confronted with such an attack.
Already heavily wounded, the high heat started showing its effects. Within a short period, the ape got clad in dazzling light as it continued wailing in pain.
In about 30 seconds, bordering on almost complete disintegration, the charred remains of the Longarm ape fell from the air.
Mikoto vs Longarm ape, Mikoto wins!
