"Sharina Bask," Sharina replies, absently stroking Pantasma's head, giving up on trying to hold the jacket tighter around her.
"Nice to meet y'all," Sam nodded and then laughed, "Though I have to say I wish it was under different settings."
"Sam!" Blizzard shouted. "There's something ahead!"
Sam squinted and gasped. A little girl with curly hair was standing by one of the ice spikes. She watched them with wide fearful eyes.
"Hey!" Sam called and waved.
She turned and ran back into the ice spikes.
"HEy! Wait!" Sam called and ran after her. "We are here to help you! Come back!"
He reached the edge of the ice spikes quickly and vanished inside, following the girl's footprints. He kept running forward and it wasn't until a few more minutes before he realized the others weren't behind him. He stopped runnign and looked around.
"There she is, Sam!" Blizzard shouted.
Sam turned and saw her standing a few feet away from him. He smiled and walked to her and held a hand out, "Hey, it's okay. You're gonna be fine."
The girl's head snapped up and Sam bit back a scream. Her eyes- that were blue- were turning blood red and her teeth were now fangs.
"IT's Ijiraq! Blizzard screamed.
((What's Ijiraq? Is that the Creature that's been kidnapping the chidlren and Santa or is it something else?))
Juste screamed in terror when he saw the little girl's face, he stumbled backwards, bumping into Rai, but not noticing. He stared at his doll in his pocket, trying to concentrate on it and not teh girl, the doll wasn't really a combat toy, it was more of for survailence adn spying he guessed. So he kept it in his pocket and kept his eyes down.
((Yeah. Ijiaq is the shape-shifting monster kidnapping everyone. ))
((Alright, that's what though it was, thanks for clearing things up! :D))
Growling low as Juste bumped inyo her, she immediately reached for her handgun. "Sniper." She thought as just as she was about to fire a couple of shots into the beast, Achi steps into her line of view. His tail lightly brushed her leg. "It'll be useless and the bullets will bounce off of the beast." He says to her. Sighing she rehostlers her gun but immediately rushes to Sam's side. If she has to do hand on hand combat, then so be it.
Sam rolled to the side as the girl lept at him. Bilzzard flew above Ijiraq and blew. Ice began to cover the girl's arms and face. She snarled in humanly and lunged again at Sam.
Sam brought his hands up in time to catch her. But she knocked him off balance. He crashed back into an ice spike and with a thunderous crack it broke and he fell through and down a vast hole. He managed to grab onto a ledge before he fell all the way, but Ijiraq had latched onto his leg.
"Help!" Sam shouted as he struggled to kick Ijiraq off.
Juste ran over to the hole. He lay down on his stomach and reached down to grab for Sam's hand, he looked back at the others, "Chaîne humaine" he called despretely, hoping they'd get the hint and create a humn chain of sorts to help pull Sma up. Juste pushed himself closer to ethe dge for eh was unable to reach Sam's hand. He was so small, he hated his hieght right now, why couldn't he be taller he be more able to help then.
((TRASLATION: Human chain.))
Everthing happened so fast and before she could react, Sam was falling down a -most likely- bottomless pit Ans Juste is on the edge, desperately trying to reach him. With a nod to Achi, she places her body on the ice and grabs hold of Juste's feet. Glancing at Achi, there was just the slightest amount of fear in his eyes and she knew they mirrored hers.
Sam reached out for Juste's hand. Ijiraq bit his leg hard- it's fangs sinking deep. He shouted in pain and swung his leg hard.
"Sam!" Blizzard shouted.
She flew down there and shot two tiny ice balls into Ijiraq's eyes. It yelped in pain and let go. Sam swung his leg again and this time knocked it off. Ijiraq screamed bloody-murder as if fell down the hole.
"Pull me up! Pull me up!" Sam shouted as he grasped Juste.
((Darn it TI won't let me post again. :( )))
Sam reached for Juste's hand. Ijiraq bit hard into his calf, making Sam scream and try to kick it off.
"Leave my Sam alone!" Blizzard shouted and flew down and hit Ijiraq with two snowballs in its eyes.
Ijiraq stopped biting Sam long enough to snarl at Blizzard and Sam used the chance to kick it off. It's screech echoed off of the walls as if fell.
"Pull me up! Pull me up!" Sam shouted as he grabbed Juste's hand.
Juste pulled with all his strength, his arm quivering with effort as as he, with of curse teh help of Rai who was anchoring him and holiding his ankles pulled Sam up. "Grab 'e ledge." he said as he pulled sam higher. He reached in with hsi other arm hand grasped Sam's wrist, using both his arms to pull at Sam.
It took a good struggle, but Sam was brought back to safety; he was on back on solid ground. Backing up and climbing to her feet, Rai was ambushed with massive dizziness. Achi flashed to her side. "You okay?" he asks and she nods.
"May I?" She asks as she steadies herself, with his help of couse.
"It'd be my pleasure." With that Rai climbs on his back and rests her hed on his taking a breather. She doesn't know what happened, but darkness took over.
((Hey on Saturday I'll be leaving for a week, gaurdian when I'm gone will you PowerPlay Juste until I come back, please?(we'll have to pause out 1x1 then too, but not until Saturday!!!) )))
((Sure thing, Loyalty. ))
Gasping Sam laid on the snow and looked at the others, "Thanks y'all. I thought I was a goner for a second there."
He sat up and tussled Juste's hair shakily, "I told you you had some muscles on you!"
He then turned to Blizzard and smiled gratefully at her. She blushed blue and landed on his shoulder and hugged his neck, "I'm glad you're okay."
Sam looked at his leg. There was some blood stains on his pants. HE rolled them up and studied the bite. It wasn't that bad, it just tore a lot of the top skin off and had a couple of deep holes, but the pain was small enough where he could still walk and run- he'd just have to limp.
Juste nodded, though he guessed Rai had doen most of the work. He thought hewas to small to help much, after all he was only a9 and small at that. They were probably just saying he was a help to make him feel bigger, at elast they were nice though, and didn't get mad at him for not fighting better or helping more.
((Thanks! Hope this ain't inconviencing you too much.))
Sharina pauses, immediately reaching for the daggers hidden inside her jacket, her eyes locked on the girl. "It was a trap," she mutters under her breath, shaking her head. Pantasma crouched beside her, snarling.
Yes, girl. Ijiraq is quite the trickster.
Sam whinced as he stood, "That was really stupid of my guys. I'm sorry." he shook his head. 'I reall thought she was one of those kids."
"It's okay," Blizzard said and patted his cheek. "It was really brave of you."
Sam didn't comment that no it was really stupid, instead he leaned over the hole, "Do you think it fell to it's death?"
