If anyone would have passing by at that moment along the darkened road next to a simple inn - lit by the light of Talla'doon's twin moons - The sight of a blue-green furry Viev slaming its body against the locked double doors of a barn would have seemed odd? - but the added contrast of the blood-stained fur and the white eyes made the image more terrifing!
Diane and Savrin were in a fix, neither of them were really sure what to do! - Di was only just now starting to feel the pain in her paw which was still bleeding - Savrin was still staring at the door which buckled inwards everytime the viev slammed against it - they were alone - except for the unciouns firewolf in the loft who was stupid enough to knock himself out!
'It can't keep that up forever! - sooner or later something well give'
Savrin gritted his teeth
'What? the Viev or the door?'
'This is not a joking matter! Diane!!'
'hey!! don't yell at me - wingboy!!'
'i thought you promised you wern't gonna call me that! anymore!!!'
'Welll sorrry! - i'am kinda of in alot of pain at the moment'
'WhY!!.....Look!! yelling at each other isnt gonna do anything - we have to get out of the barn or do something?'
'ya! but what!!'
at that momnt a loud 'VIVI!!' broke the argument - as the door jammed inwards again...then stopped
both Savrin and Diane looked at the door - di decided to take a chance and peer our the crack between the two doors - that had been driven apart slightly due the banging - she felt Savrin's wing brash against her back - so she figured he was also trying to see - from over top of her head
The Viev was lying a short distance from the door in the open ground area near the entrance of the barn its fur was matterd by blood, and it was covered in rips caused by the constant banging - its tail was hanging at loopsided angle - so it looked like it was broken - its chest was still moving up and down - very fast
'its still alive' the fur whispered mainly to herself - she made a move to unlock the door - but Savrin's hand stopped her
'wait.. remember what i said that it was impossible for a viev to attack like that!'
'Savrin! look at it - the poor thing is dying its not gonna hurt us anymore'
'its not the Viev i'am worried about...'
but hes words fell on deaf ears - cause di was already forcing the doors open - they wenrnt supposed to be at such a harsh inward angle - the doors came open and she walked out into the yard
'Diane!!' Savrin gave a harsh whisper! - but the fur was heading for the Viev
the viev lay on the ground - its chest heaving - Diane actually felt sorry for the little creature - it no longer had teh bloodlust look in its eyes or was drooling - she knelt down and genetly stroked it - the Viev just gave a weak 'vivi.' and didnt even lift its long-neck - Di knew then that there was no way the little creature had attacked by itself something else had forced it to attack.. but what???
'DIANE - DUCK!!!'
Savrin's yell alerted her back to reality - as a pure black shadow came out from nowwhere and sidewiped at her - The Fur threw herself over the injured viev and felt a burning wind - sing the fur on the back of her neck - she looked up just in time to see the shadow like creature vanish into thin air
'What the heck was that!!'
'That was ever what was controlling the Viev! - i was right!'
'But what was it!!'
'I have no idea - but i think we're gonna find out!'
