Gamers' Challenge – Tark

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 17: Testing

 

The face in the static solidified. It was huge and ugly and misshapen, its hate-filled eyes fixed on Tark.

‘Reactivate the force-field,’ ordered Tee.

Tark didn’t move. He stood, transfixed by the swirling static eyes.

‘Force-field!’ yelled Gal.

‘Zyra,’ the creature rumbled, baring its fangs.

Tark dropped the control. He lifted his crossbow and fired both bolts.

Laughter rumbled from the cave. Gal jumped forward, scooped up the control and activated the force-field.

A shimmer flickered across the mouth of the cave. The mass of sizzling malevolence grew, surging forward and pressing itself against the barrier. Sparks filled the air as claws formed in the static, scrabbling against the invisible screen.

‘You idiot!’ growled Gal.

‘Zyra,’ Tark whispered, dropping his crossbow. ‘It said Zyra.’

‘So what?’ Gal turned to Tee. ‘You see? You can’t trust him. He’s a risk.’

‘Zyra’s in danger.’ Tark’s voice was louder and higher as he grabbed Gal by his tunic, shaking him. ‘We’ve gotta do somethin’.’
