o that? ”

Tabu seemed to be quite satisfied with his reply, and Zoey was rather impressed.

”Oh, not just yet, ” she said with a smile. ”Ask yourself this little man.

”Should you hit me? ” she said in a whisper.

”You coming? ” asked Jack, looking over his shoulder, carrying Noah, in his arms.

She didn reply, but grabbed Tabu by his right hand and led him towards Will and Ayu. This, annoyed the little beast to no end. But he said nothing. It was not very wise to quarrel with that particular group. Partly, because it would be inconvenient, and because he had just thrown one member off the cliff, and hit another on the head with a hand sized rock.

Four more to go. Tabu told himself.

”What happened to her? ” asked Ayu.

”She tripped and hit her head on a rock, ” came the simple yet, believable reply.

Ayu wasn sold though. Neither were the others. Especially Will. Why, well he had seen Tabu drag poor old Kaal off the cliff. He had seen, although, he shouldn have. That portion of the cliff was different. It had more trees. Large big trees, that blocked Wills sight. But when he wished to see beyond those obstacles, he could. The trees just seemed to disappear. They were back now, and they probably hadn physically vanished earlier either. But somehow, Will had seen beyond the trees.

He hadn witnessed Tabu hit Noah unconscious, but he guessed such was the case. So did, the Balinese. He didn represent his front of throwing Tabu off the cliff. He didn have evidence. He couldn have convinced the others. Plus, he might just be seeing visions. He did hear voices all the time.

All of these thoughts were interrupted, when the creatures finally appeared, yelling their battle cries, swinging broadswords and hitting the earth with their whips. In moments, the group was surrounded. Couldn have avoided the situation. Now, it looked impossible to avoid death. The drool dripping of the broad chested monsters mouth didn help up the groups spirits.

”Any ideas guys? ” Will asked, scared like a cat.

”Um… I got one, ” said Zoey reluctantly enough that it was hinted, that, the idea was indeed a bad one.

”Anybody else has an idea? ” asked Jack.

”Hey! Thats so mean, ” barked Zoey.

The creatures conveniently waited, giving the group time to finish their conversation.

”Whats the idea? ” asked Ayu, hopeful yet pragmatic.

”For starters, jump off the cliff. ”

The group reacted appropriately, by barking insults and chastisements at Zoey, but then the Demons started coming closer.

That is a crazy idea, said the ever-present voice in Wills head.

”Why? ” Will asked finally, maybe thinking of the same thing.

The creatures were now only a metre away.

”Just do it, ” she persisted, then grabbed Tabu and jumped.

Not believing himself, Jack jumped with Noa in his arms. Luckily, he hit Zoey midfall and discovered the Mexicans hair was on fire. Seconds later, they were joined by the other two.

From the corner of his eye, Will noticed – before he was engulfed by flames – at the bottom of the hill, Kaal, a wooden stump, the branch of a tree, sticking out of his belly, and the boy himself only moving slightly.

He was alive. Kaal had somehow survived the fall, he had survived being impaled – if not for long – but Will knew, that Kaal wouldn survive the forest. And they were leaving him there.
