When darkness starts to dominate the night sky and midnight hour strikes, that's when monsters and demons lashed out. A sudden thunderous roar echoes in the fraction less night sky.
The moon was nowhere in sight as the clouds were gathered in a heap of masses all over, covering traces of stars that shines the vast array of the atmosphere.
With the etheral glow on the demon hunter's sword, light descended upon the path of the lone-hunter Alucard.
"Demons." He muttered in anger.
The visible light created sounds of agony from creatures lurking, the light was unbearable for some. However, it was not enough to hinder the never ending trail of demons approaching him.
He released a fatal gash on three of the demons torso. Rendering them motionless. With bloodshed comes another execution.
"You will die demon hunter!" The demon exclaimed.
The executioner amputated the demons head before he was able to bridge the gap between them. He heaved in weariness as the growing realization dawned into him. Strangely enough, there seems to be no stoppage from these pact of demons coming for him.
Emerging from the deepest part of the woods were more abominations gaining in number. They seem to be endless.
For a brief moment, the demon hunter Alucard did not stir in his position. There was another thought he was contemplating as to why there was demons nearby the temple of light.
The temple of light serves as a sacred place where most demon hunters train, the holy grounds kept them at bay and at distance away from the borders. Therefore, it was bewildering to encounter a horde of demons invading the holy sanctuary.
The moment of deliberate contemplation paved way for one red-eyed demon to swiftly make a pounce. Its claws hungrily reaching out for a kill. In an instantaneous reaction, Alucard drew his demon hunter's sword and decapitated the demon charging, the sword's contact resonating a metal noise. The combat became much fiercer, more aggressive with each contact.
A howling voice trembled and reverberated. Soon after, a series of agonizing groans and wails arose in amidst the suffocating tension. It was then that at this juncture, he knew there will be more arriving.
The crisp wind perk up in anger, its force slicing through like daggers. By this moment then a cloudy mist immediately enveloped Alucard as he struggled to fight off the remaining pact of demons.
He was too engrossed with his opponent up front to even take notice of a few demons approaching from behind him.
Before he was able to intercept their succeeding attacks, Alucard was forcefully thrusted against the dingy ground. The impact sent short-term tremors resonating around the area. His grip tightened, a stinging sensation coursing through his arm.
Blood started to exude, at the same time the prescence of a viscous dark purple fluid flowing, an indication he knew he was injured. A miniscule injury that left him breathless at the moment.
The demon hunter knew the tides were against him, he was outnumbered from one to ten. The brawl left him gasping for air as the creatures of the dark drew nearer. Alucard closed his wary eyes, there was no getting out of this, he thought.
He did not expect to die in such a place, yet alone in this manner. He was a very respectable and well-known demon hunter in the empire. To think that an incision would be a deadly causality, leave him questioning his abilities in battle.
Shrieks broke the silent reverie of an almost defeated demon hunter. In front of his eyes, he witnessed the immobilization of crumbling demons at his feet. His ears perked up. A melody. The sound of a death sonata coming.
There was only one person that Alucard knew who played a tune as deadly as his.
Granger, his mind registered.
Another demon hunter he respected, though deaf, none can say otherwise about his capabilities to spread chaos along his path.
His vision was getting hazy and his mind clouded. The effects was beginning to take a toll on his body. Nevertheless, he knew the sounds of violins and the aftermath of death.
Granger came with his signature symphonium and his fatal death blows.
Slowly, the creatures stumble one by one as the ceaseless sounds of gunshots pervaded. Everything happened too fast and after a few minutes most of them fell defeated.
Granger ceased fire. Nearby was a demon crawling. The creature barred its gnawing fangs and claws when Granger pointed his gun at the creatures's direction.
"This will not be the end for us! This is just the beginning!" The demon snarled one last time before he was blown in the head.
