I risked a glance over the ledge, needing to see how far away the Hellions were. They were only steps away from the garage, but soon became fading dots in the sand. I could hear them screaming under the thundering chug of the engine, most of the Hellions turning to run back to their own skiff.
Only one of the monsters stood in place, watching us fly away. I knew that it was the large Hellion, and while I couldn’t see its face, I knew it was still smiling.
This would definitely not be the last time I saw the monster, and next time I didn’t think I would get away.
