Responding to @Gardevoiran
The wall exploded to Judah's left followed by the door behind him being knocked off its hinges. He instinctively covered his head with his hands and got down to one knee. Axel barked in fright and cowered next to his master. Then, out of the debris stepped some of The Community's heaviest hitters. Sonika and Xolotol. There would be no escape from this..
They informed the duo that Patriarch wanted a word with them and Judah knew it wasn't to discuss the weather. They had pissed The Community off, royally. Was there a way out? That's when Farce spoke up. At first, Judah grimaced. Not wanting to see his friend fall along with the rest of them. However, as she continued to speak, the pieces of her plan formed together in Judah's mind. She was blackmailing them into keeping her alive with Limbo. "Brilliant." He thought.
When she had finished, Judah gave Gaia a knowing look that had a twinge of sadness in it. Axel growled at the intruders, determined to tear them to pieces with a single command. To his surprise, Judah only patted Axel lovingly until the growling subsided. Then Judah directed him to Gaia with a command, "Go boy!" His canine companion hesitated for a moment, but then did as his master ordered, sitting directly at Gaia's feet. He whimpered quietly as if he knew something the others didn't, instinctively.
Judah slowly stood upright, not wanting to surprise the intruders with any sudden movements, yet. Then a thought entered Farce's mind, "Goodbye, Gaia." Suddenly, with all the emotional power he could muster, Judah released a meteor of terror directed at the two intruders. A fear that could bring even a courageous man to his knees. A fear that felt like death itself. With a strangely calm voice Judah stated, "You will have to kill me first." At the same time he drew his 1911 sidearm. With a single motion he fired at Xolotol three times before turning his attention to Sonika and unloading the rest of his magazine on her.
