The Mayor - Chapter 5 - Valiant Escape
« on: March 21, 2009, 03:02:36 AM »



http://www.worstmayorsever.com/?p=118

Elected Command: Spare.



“With my last moment in this accursed realm, I’ll rot this arm off! I will!” BaraBara threatens, unconvincingly.

The Man plucks the demon lord’s frontal fangs from his bulging forearm, and lifts the blackened skull above. The flare from BaraBara’s eye sockets illuminates the chamber further.

“Consider yourself pardoned.” The Man dryly acknowledges. A small whimper of relief escapes BaraBara, as his twin flames taper their sharp edges, steadily morphing into soft orbs. The green flicker dances with the shadows.

“Er…I…” BaraBara stammers.

The Man’s brows remain furrowed.

“I… Um… Actually, don’t know where they are.” says BaraBara.

Cracks form along the skull, as pressure from The Man’s left hand mounts as he squeezes down.

“W-Wait! The Four! The Four did not tell me of their plans, but-“ BaraBara struggles. “But I can tell you that they watch on, at this very moment!”

The Man shifts his gaze from BaraBara, and onto the angelic statues of the chamber corners. No longer are they winged saints of marble, but have now transformed into monstrous apparitions. The Man recognizes them all, involuntarily cracking his right fist.

One of the apparitions begins to chant, causing the etchings upon the walls to burst into bright red. Tightening his clutch upon the skull, The Man lunges for the staircase as the chamber begins to collapse. Racing toward the exit, the whirlwind of destruction grows deafening. Slabs of the staircase walls rocket out, as he sprints upward.

With honed reflexes, The Man grandly leaps forward, rears back left hand, and crushes BaraBara’s grizzly skull into ashy dust. The twin flames encircle his fist, while the demonic scream of BaraBara rings out. In a single fluid motion, The Man slams the enflamed fist into the closed tomb doors, blasting them from off their ancient hinges, and rolling onto the dewed grass outside. The man gazes on the Redwood Tomb, collapsed and smoldering.

“C-curse you… Y-you promised.” The weakening green flame protests. With a huff, The Man kneels down, and grabs a thin bark shaving from the fallen redwood. Deftly, he slaps his hands together, and squeezes tight. The flame absorbs into the bark shaving, which The Man then proceeds to expertly roll up, and place between his crown and hatband.

He contemplates. Had they all truly been watching? Have they been alerted to his awakening?

The sunrise now seeps over the horizon, providing for a better view of his possible destinations than before.

“Who… Who are you? What a manner of man are you!?” BaraBara faintly queries.

The Man squints.

“I’m The Mayor.”

If the chimneys are burning, it implies they are attended. Perhaps there is someone amoung the surely many there that doesn't intend to "impeach" our protagonist.

Civilizations ever concentrate themselves upon the coast.  We may find people among the smokestacks and factories, but they are more probably instruments of the usurpation rather than the usurpers themselves.  Furthermore, if we're going to perform a systematic search of areas, the coast is the logical starting point as it provides an unmissable landmark and the boundary from which to begin searching.

I bet those chumps have someone claiming to be a mayor.  Maybe even a Mayor.  Let's go rough him all the way up.

I have a feeling that over the course of The Mayor's adventure we're going to come across his monocle and sash, and I get the feeling they're in the mountains and ocean. I also feel we're going to need them before we go into town.

Imagine the worst case scenario.  You go to a place at random, and there's nothing there.  At the buildings you can at least fuck up the shit somebody left behind.  Go to a feature of the geography, and you aint got nothing to do than try to piledrive Mother Nature.

I drank to that until halfway through when I realized you were doing the Jem theme.

Any self respecting, demon-smashing, newly resurrected mayor would of course want to check in on his constituents before going on vacation.
