DmC Triple Shots

Limbo City, once a haven for demon kind, now a ruin being rebuilt under careful scrutiny and protected from the demonic presence that one remained hidden. With the Hell Gate closed and Mundus killed, the pocket world that the demons used to hide their true forms shattered, leaving many confused, afraid, and all too angry…

Those that were the most bold took the initiative and lashed out against humans the world over, but all was not lost for the humans, many Demon Hunters began to spring up from the chaos. With all this needless destruction going around, the world needs its heroes, most of all, they needed Dante. But Dante is just one guy, and unlike his brother Vergil, can't be in two places at once, yet…

What is a Hero to do? Nowadays he spends a lot of his time training with his close friend and associate, Kat, as she took the reigns of the Order. With Dante's help, they began gathering the Demon hunters and trained them, turning them into a small, but effective fighting force, so much so that the Order was recognized as the world's first line of defence against the demonic horde.

Running this organization leaves Dante and Kat with hardly any time to themselves, the most they could do on any given day is go out for a quick bite of Pie or some Pizza, but naturally that doesn't last long as Demons loyal to the old regime are always planning to kill Dante and obtain power they can only dream of, but their plans are almost always thwarted by Kat's interference, but this time would be different…

Danet groaned as Kat pulled him by the arms down the busy streets of Limbo City. He was blindfolded, so he couldn't tell where he was going, and the sound of construction equipment made it difficult to hear. Kat had a surprise for him, not that he liked those sort of things, but some kind of hint as to where she was taking him would have been nice. His coat tails flapped in the breeze as the rounded a corner, causing his head to turn into the wind. He could smell Pizza, what else was new, but why would he need to be dragged around blind folded if they were simply getting Pizza? He sighed, "Are we there yet?"

Kat chuckled happily as she continued to lead him along, "Almost… Is somebody still grumpy about the Tux?"

Dante huffed as he straightened his dark red coat with one hand, "Stupid Penguin suit… I can't be too mad though, they let me keep my girls… And my weapons. I feel naked without them sometimes."

This time Kat broke down laughing. He smiled, she doesn't laugh often, not often enough. He figured that she was laughing because of the circumstances they met, but she proved him wrong, "Well, you were meeting the mayor, so the suit was required, but as if anyone would tell you leave your stuff at home. That and the Demons attacking really helped your cause. Not that it was a good thing, but a dash of heroism did you some good."

Dante snorted, "I'm no hero, i'm just a guy with a knack for killing stuff. though, I bet those Stygians flunked demon school."

Kat grinned, here comes a joke, "And why is that?"

"Because they are so stupid, they left their blinker on for each attack."

Kat rubbed her chin in thought, Dante's attempt at humor was terrible, but it was true… She didn't really understand why the Demons flashed before most of their attacks. Oh well. They stopped walking, and she said, "Go on, take it off, I have a surprise for you."

Dante muttered to himself as he fumbled with the blindfold, "Better not be like the last time you said that."

His mouth dropped to the floor along with the blindfold, "What the…. When did they do this!"

Kat smiled as Dante admired the newly Rebuilt Tony's Pizza Palace, one of the best Pizza joins in the City and one of the few places that Dante used to regular, at least, until Mundus destroyed the place along with a large chunk of the city some time ago. She patted him on the back, "They reopened just the other day. I wanted to take you, but we had to get you all gussied up for the Key to the City ceremony… And then you had that job in the sewer…"

Dante sighed, "Those Mindflayers wouldn't stop flop footing me. Luckily they don't like bullets all that much."

Kat smiled with a nod, "True… Consider this a reward for all your good behavior, i'm buying."

Dante grinned like a mad man, "It's a paid vacation then? Bout time Christmas came early, maybe this year I can also get more than two lumps of coal in my stocking."

Kat frowned as he tried opened the door, "And Maybe I'll crack some chestnuts by an open flame."

Dante halted in his tracks as he looked back at Kat, "Did you just…? I must really be rubbing off on you."

Kat blushed as Dante went up to the front counter and thought about his order. Embarrassed about the current subject, she tried to change it by asking, "What's your favorite kind of Pizza?"

Dante smiled as he ordered, "Two classic Pepperonis and a Chicago, extra oregano."

The Waitress at the counter, Mandi, began writing up their order before asking, "Can I interest you in a free sample of our new Mushroom Olive combo?"

Dante looked back at Kat, who simply shrugged, and then back at Mandi and nodded, "Sure… Anything you want Kat?"

Kat wanted to just let Dante order, but… There was something she always wanted to make sure Dante tried. She stepped up to the counter and said, "Two Strawberry Sundae deluxes please."

Mandi smiled and handed them their receipt, "It will be finished shortly. Your order number is 616."

As Dante and Kat went to full up a couple of soft drinks, Kat whispered to Dante, saying, "Something doesn't seem right. I don't recognize anyone from my visit here the other day…"

Dante frowned, "I know, it's… Wait, you came here without me?"

Kat smiled nervously, "I was just scoping the place out, I swear."

Dante sighed, "Whatever… What's with the sundaes?"

Kat shrugged, "Well, I had one the other day, and I thought you might like one. They were pretty good."

Dante thought a moment before saying, "Alright, i'll try one, for you."

marklurch1: What an unexpected pleasure! I usually avoid modern gothic stories as the zombies and demons shown on TV seem so one-dimensional. But the demons in this story were truly menacing as their powers grew and transfigured as the story progressed. But then, great heroes require great villains. There we...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Diyfamilygarden: This is one of the best books I've ever read! The characters, the unique love and everything else in this book is so well written that it feels like you're there! Like you can see it with your own eyes! J.K.Rowling can watch out, this fantasy book is just as good as the Harry Potter books, maybe ...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Deleted User: I liked it very much. I liked how it began with the two sisters bonding like that. I especially liked how it ended. Although, i wish it had more of a plot twist, but then again, that's just me. This was my first book i read on this app, and i really like it. I'll probably read more books because ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...
