grabs a brick from the ground and throws it at the creature, but it's a frantic shot, taken without really aiming, and it just flies over the creature's head. Still, it succeeds in catching its attention, and instead of finishing Andre
, it runs after Jean-Luc, now fleeing towards the square where they come from... and running just past Francois
as he dashes in the opposite direction. Meanwhile, Jacques
warily looks behind the corner.
And they see madness. Andre
, blodded, throwing punches at a wall and gibbering incoherently. And running towards them, a ghastly humanoid, almost human indeed, and yet unmistakably a monster. A face resembling a skull, the skin so taut it looks like it could lacerate any moment. Gray skin, like that of a gravely ill man, emaciated, showing all the bones. And the claws, in the place of fingers, long and sharp. A mouth open, showing canine teeth and a long, red tongue. The creature is running directly towards Francois
now, who can feel, quite literally, like death is running towards him.
