Hell's Gates Shall Open

By ElectronDemon

Fantasy / Romance

Chapter 1: First Meeting

Nar-Korash's POV

I exit the portal and stand atop a high tower in the middle of the city of Townsville. It was filled with happy people going about their everyday lives with not a care in the world. I feel a bit sorry for them thinking about what Electron has in store for them but then again I suppose they are used to it. As I stare out into the city I begin formulating a plan about how to cross paths with the three heroines. However out of all my ideas only one didn't end with me looking like a creeper and even then I still didn't like it. Sighing I constructed my wings, jumped off the tower and flew around to find what I was looking for.

Blossom's POV

It's Friday and school just let out for the weekend and needless to say I can't wait to get home and start on this new book I just got. As I left the building I was greeted by my two sisters waiting by the gate. We were all sixteen now and the years had been kind to us what with perfect figures, no acne, and in Buttercups case: a very well-endowed chest

"Hi Blossom!" Bubbles happily called

"Took your time" Buttercup said slightly impatient

"Sorry, people in the science club kept asking me for help on homework" I responded

"Aren't most of those guys top in the school though?" Bubbles asked

"Yes" I answered

"Top of the school my ass" Buttercup scoffed "Can we go home so I can start enjoying my weekend?"

"Alright then" I responded

We took flight and headed for home our respective colors of pink, emerald green, and baby blue trailing behind us. As we passed by the center of town I could have sworn I saw something that looked like a giant bat. I figured my eyes were playing tricks on me and continued on to our happy home.

Nar-Korash's POV

It took a few minutes of flying around until I found the city bank. I figured the best way to gain an audience with the girls was to pull something like robbing a bank. Usually I don't like committing crimes of any kind but I guess it's necessary evil. I took in a deep breath and let it out slowly then walked up to the doors. Using my shadow energy I blasted the doors off their hinges (secretly taking care that they didn't hit anyone) and began to walk up to the desk. Two security officers (who need to lay off the donuts) ran up to try and stop me but a quick blow to each of their Solar Plexus and they were out. I made my way to the first desk nearest me, threw two empty bags in front of the man behind the desk, created razor sharp claws on the tips of my fingers, positioned them just in front of his eyes and said

"First you're going to put the money in the bag, then you're going to open the vault so I can get the rest, got it?"

"Y-Y-Y-YES!" he stuttered

He then went on his way filling the bags with all the money he had afterwards he led me to the vault where I promptly began grabbing everything inside and storing it in an abyssal portal *A/N his portals are useful for more than just transport they can also be used for storing infinite amounts of anything so it's kind of like a black hole used for storage but you can still get back everything you stored* making sure to take my time so the girls could get here.

Buttercup's POV

We landed in front of our home and were greeted by our "father" The Professor I couldn't wait to spend all weekend playing sports, video games, listening to music and all that good stuff. Those dreams were cut short however when not even ten seconds after we all walked in the Hotline went off. Out of all of us I groaned the loudest

"Why is it that criminals can never commit crimes on days that AREN'T THE WEEKENDS?!" I exclaimed

Blossom rushed to the phone and answered with her usual 'what is it Mayor?' A short conversation transpired and then she hung up.

"The Townsville Bank is being robbed" she said

"By who?" Bubbles asked "Mojo? HIM? Fuzzy?"

"No idea" she answered "Mayor said he has never seen him before"

"Well whoever he is" I said "I get the first punch since he messed up my weekend plans"

With that we all flew back outside and headed toward the bank.

Nar-Korash's POV

I cleaned out about half of the vault before I figured that it would suffice. I walked out of the vault and grabbed the two sacks, now full of money, and started for the hole where the doors used to be. It was here my conscience started to bug me. I stopped turned towards the man who I had threatened earlier I stared at him a few seconds then reached into one of the bags pulled out a stack worth about $1000 and tossed it over to him. He stared at it, then at me with the same half dumbfounded half confused look I shrugged and said

"My conscience was bothering me"

With that I took my leave with both bags slung over one shoulder wondering where the three heroines were. As if on cue from behind me I heard three girls voices call out


Bubble's POV

We found the criminal just as he was leaving the bank. As he turned around I could see that he had a very pale complexion and was about 6'4" tall. He wore all black which included a sharpshooter hat, black pants, jacket, gloves, cape, and two gold rings on each wrist *A/N for a better picture look at the picture up in the story description but add a long black cape and a gold ring on each wrist* he looked at each of us as though sizing us up. With a cunning smile he said

"I was starting to wonder if you weren't going to show you three"

"Enough chit-chat!" Buttercup said "Who are you and why are you interrupting my weekend?!"

"Who me?" he asked nonchalantly "The name is Midnight Shadow but I'm hardly worth mentioning"

"You must be new in town" I said "We certainly haven't seen you before"

"Indeed" he answered "I literally got into town not even half an hour ago"

"Barely half an hour and you're already robbing banks?" Blossom asked "Seems like you've made yourself at home"

"Indeed I tend to settle into my new homes rather quickly" he responded

"That's good" Buttercup said "That way you'll get used to the prison cell where you will be going"

He smirked as he dropped the bags and opened his arms in an inviting gesture

"Bring it on bitch" he challenged
