Chapter 2: Carnivore Cruise
Just then, a flurry of action happens around Paco’s body and the pack of dogs surrounding it.
Bing Bong literally comes out of nowhere slashing and waving his rapier. While he doesn’t hit any dogs, he does back them up enough so that he can kneel and lay a hand on Paco. His chest glows while Bing Bong keeps his rapier extended to keep the dogs at bay.
The glowing stops. Paco doesn’t move. The dogs sense the vulnerability and start to close in. Paco starts waving his rapier wildly. A cough. Another. And then Paco is on his feet. Bloodied. But looking much better. The dogs pause in astonishment.
But just as quickly as they stopped, They begin to close in. As the circle tightens, Prancy jumps up from underneath the dead dog he lied under and puts his finger to his lips. A strange sound fills everyone’s ears. A ringing.
And silently all 5 dogs and Paco fall to the ground. Asleep. Bing Bong stands confused. In the center of it all.
Gosling begins to glow. A light blue at first. And then brighter. And whiter. He screams. And then ice shards fly from his body. Into the two guards and out the other side. Each falls to the ground with a look of surprise still on their face.
You look to Gosling. Or Ed as you know him. Or knew him. He is gone. Maybe those ice shards didn’t come from his body. Maybe they WERE his body. He did always have trouble controlling his power. Maybe this time it was too much.
With the guards down. There are only five sleeping dogs left.
Kill them before they attack us again! They almost killed Paco!
Prancy takes his rapier and walks to each dog stabbing it in the chest. With each impaling comes a high pitched whimper. A little blood. And silence.
With all threat neutralized it seems to be an easy walk to the vault.
what is this?
