Firmly believing that no bounty how ever great can be spent from inside the belly of a snake, Inktail bolts for the door. Saddly, as the snake said, Inktail was very fat and thus very slow. Ariving at the door only intime to see the great snake block her path as he flails about in pain. With the snakes tail landing in front of the door the vixen turns and leaps for the window.
Pushing the shudders open with brute force the fox pulls herself through and…that is about as far as she can get. With her middle wedged firmly in the window the fox is caught balf wah escaping into the night and halfway trapped in the tavern. Struggle as she might she cant seem to move forward or backward.
Again...as the snake said...she was /very/ fat.
But no longer the snakes object of attention...
"Get off! Get off!" Scar shouts as he is clawed, bite, and beaten savagely by the rat. What he lacks in strength he obviously makes up in crazy! But in the end it is not enough. Tearing tinderwick away from him and leaping away Scar draws a hold out knife frok his boot. "You crazy fool, you are going to get us all killed!" The otter raises the knife to slay the beast. The blade is small but more than sharp enough to deliver the fatal blow.
"Wrong!" Comes the shout of Basilisk. His tail comes next. Slaming against the top of the otters head with enough force to drive him to the ground and bounce into the air. The snake then swings his mighty tail again, striking ghe air born bounty hunter like a base ball bat senidn him flying towards the far wall.
The fire place eruptes is savage heat as Scar lands inside, the roar of the flames filling the place of the scream he never got to shout. "Only you are going to die..." the snake sneers at the otter as the flames slowly die down.
After a sbort moment he slowly turns his head toward the rat. Peering over him intently the snake utters only one word. "WhyyyYyyYyyyy...?"
