a short comic of a scene from the golden door.
"Skimmers!" "Are skimmers all you can think of? You are obsessed with them as everyone else in Weld!"
"We better move on, soon the sun will set and the skimmers..."
"Of course I am!" "Because of the skimmers, I have lost my home and everyone I love! As you have yourself, Sonia! Or have you been so long in the safety of the keep that you have forgotten?"
Sonia paused. An expression that might have been shame crossed her face.
Then, without another word, she stepped from the path to move around the slimy net and its hideous burden.
Instantly the tree on the side seemed to come alive. What looked like a thick section of mottled bark peeled away, revealing itself to Rye's horrified eyes as a huge, lizardlike beast, foul-smelling slime dripping from its snarling jaws.
Sonia screamed and ducked, avoiding the snapping jaws by a hair, and ran for her life. The beast dropped to all fours and leaped after her, frighteningly fast. Yelling in shock, Rye shrugged off his bundle, snatched up the dead man's hatchet, and gave chase.
