A spasm of coughing shook her. As dust and debris settled to what was left of the floor, Danielle’s heart leaped when she saw the powerful body of Kimar slowly come into focus.
“Danielle! Take my hand,” shouted Kimar, amber eyes flashing.
She reached her right hand into the murky gloom until she touched the back of Kimar’s taloned hand. Immediately, she felt his hand turn, lift her to her feet and swing her in front of him.
The other gargoyle bellowed angrily at Kimar and stabbed both fists, talons fully extended, straight at Danielle’s belly.
Holding her tightly in his left arm, Kimar quickly twisted to the left, shielding Danielle. At the same time, he swept his right arm in a backwards motion, blocking his enemy’s blow. Then, Kimar immediately swung his right arm down towards the floor, shredding up mounds of carpet and arcing it upwards towards the gargoyle’s chest.
The other reared back just in time to dodge Kimar’s razor sharp talons, while defensively hurling shattered floorboards at Kimar.
Kimar seized the opportunity to retreat from the battle with Danielle safely in his arms, still clutching tightly to the box. Vaulting off the ruined floor in a powerful leap, Kimar shot through the roof opening and flew rapidly away from what was left of Danielle’s home. The Key of Kahrnahrgx glowed faintly within its plastic shelter. Quickly, he caught up to Ercen, whose flight was labored by the weight of two human adults.
