Charley was blasting monsters left and right, he could see Valerie and Jason slashing through the hordes, Harry and Zoe where next to him shooting arrows. Charley couldnt see the rest of the group but he was sure they where just fine.

Suddenly something crashed into the wall making a huge hole, it was the dragon, it lit the katoblepones on fire, the dolphin army tried to attack it but they had the same faith, the dragon looked at Charley and he knew being burnt wouldnt be a good way to go, the dragon charged at them and Charley ran to the side, he heard the dragon flap his wongs and rise up wards, he hoped the dragon was leaving the battle for good, but he turned and saw Zoe and Harry where gone.
