After the monsters split off into three separate entities, three sergal children — including Ekay’s talkative guide — gave chase to finish them off.
The first part of the creature slips among a group of rocks. Unfortunately, Ekay’s friend breaks his rod on the stones, missing his target. Likewise, the second part of the creature escapes through a fence-like group of branches.
Fortunately, with a deft swing of their staff, a third sergal child known as “Black-ears” successfully dispatches their quarry. One down, two to go.
