Monica stopped running and looked back at Rueben. "What was that thing?" she asked. Suddenly, another beast came running towards them. Monica ran with the others, until she tripped.
The beast saw Monica trip, and it drooled to taste her. Monica ran against a wall, and panicked. "Help!" The beast looked at her, as he paced back and forth. It began to pounce at her.
But as soon as it did, the golden star locket glew brightly. Then... flashes of yellow lightning bolts struck at the creature. The beast yelped in horror, and as soon as it was over, it ran limply away. Monica breathed hard, and stood terrified.
