At the moment Umbard was not overly concerned about his leg now that the immediate danger had passed. Although certainly feeling numb from a pinched nerve, he knew that he would have a couple hours before permanent damage might be done for lack of blood flow. How much this would effect his fight he wasn’t sure, but what he was sure of was that he would find a way to make due and defeat his cowardly opponent regardless.
“I can beat ya with only one leg and both hands tied behind my back!” He bellowed gruffly as he made a newfound effort to pull himself out of the pit. Thanks to Evvie’s heroic distraction the monster of the pit no longer had control over him and he managed to pull himself up onto the surface with bulging biceps. He looked around himself to try and spot his enemy while panting on his hands and knees. Admittedly that took a lot out of him and he needed a moment to recover.
Meanwhile, Evvie didn’t notice the wicked hand that reached out and grasped onto the hollow bones that made up her left wing. She let out a shrill cry as it snapped like a twig under his grasp. Her own blood dripped down into the pit with Umbards. She looked in shock at her mangled wing and the monster that had snatched her while she wasn’t looking. Before she could fight back she was tossed downward into the darkness. With her single wing she tried her best to remain airborne but she was only able to awkwardly slow herself down.
Her feet slammed hard onto the pile of bones below, drawing blood and letting out the same crunching noise her wing had produced. Luckily the bone pile managed to break some of her fall. Unluckily, whatever had managed to cause so many bones to pile up was now after her. She winched and tucked her injured blood red wing in close to her body. She wouldn’t be flying back out of here any time soon. She breathed out fire and coated her forearms in it to allow herself a sufficient light source down here, casting dramatic shadows on the walls from her flickering flames. Her eyes darted around above her in search of the abomination, her jaws open and ready to unleash another torrent the moment she caught sight of him. Her rigid body language showed a rare emotion from her. Fear.
