A loud snarl filled the cavern, echoing like a freight train. Shrieking, Courtney threw the ball of energy, willing it to ignite as it arced through the air.
Bright light erupted all around, blinding her. Another loud snarl filled the air, accompanied by her screaming. She held the tent pole like a spear, hoping to pierce whatever might leap her way. There was a sudden loud thud, followed by an animalistic cry of pain that was just as quickly extinguished, along with the light.
Courtney couldn't see anything in front of her, except for sunspots from the sudden explosion. The whole cavern had gone dark moments after she'd launched her attack. But she heard shuffling and knew that whatever was making that sound was coming towards her.
