Author notes below body of writing

Previously... "Grab the female." The voice boomed throughout the mountain, reverberating through the tunnels and caverns. Warriors on both sides ceased their battle as the mountain shuddered, throwing them into chaos.

"Orion -- you touch her and all heaven and afar will scourge you beyond your concept of existence." Solace thrust his way through the skirmish, ripping through the Ch'hogs barely missing his own warriors.


Zenak flew in shadow over the monstrous heads of the enemy, just in time to see a Ch'hog warrior grab Sianna'Q around the waist. He pulled her hard against his leathery body, lifted her from the ground and over his shoulder, trapping her with his green scaled arm.

Solace, I'm in shadow -- challenge the big lizard, he has Sianna'Q. He flew low and admired her bravery as she clamped her teeth into the creature's pointed, hairy ear, and at the same time, kicked him in the gut.

The giant gave a loud roar which caught the attention of his clan, leaving them vulnerable to the fatal thrusts of the Sarandor'Q Jaskas. He dragged her from his shoulder, and holding her firmly under his huge muscular arm, lashed out at his enemy with his three pronged spear in his right blood encrusted claws.

Sianna'Q could barely breathe. If I can free my right arm, I can grab my dagger. She stretched, slightly twisting against his tight hold, hoping he was too engaged to notice her movements. Stretching her arm and fingers, she felt for the top of her boot. Now I know why I like thigh high boots. With a swift movement, she unsheathed her hidden blade. Then with all the strength she could muster, she stuck the point of the weapon deep into the gap between his leathery scales and into his flesh. "Take that you stinking lizard." If I go down, I'll take you with me.

Green blood spurted over her body as she withdrew the blade and without hesitation, plunged it again, and again...

He swung around to face his attacker at the same time, the roar that bellowed from his throat  vibrated through her body, shaking her like a rag doll.

Why doesn't he drop me -- take this and this. She stabbed him repeatedly, as he swirled around looking for his nemesis, still holding her under his arm. I can't believe it, he's so pre-occupied, he's forgotten I'm here!

"Hey lizard - I'm up here!" Solace flew above him, taunting him with his Jaska. "Drop her now!"

'Solace, it seems he's unaware he still has Sianna'Q in his grip. If he falls, he'll take her with him.

In shadow, Zenak confused the other Ch'hogs,  who also wanted a piece of the prize for capturing the female. He slashed out at them with his dagger in one hand and his Jaska in the other - claiming two lizards with each stroke.
I can't hold on much longer, he's crushing me. I may have to risk a 'shift.'

'No Sianna'Q - Not yet!' Solace floated above them invisible to the enemy. Zenak, can you slice through his upper arm?' He watched in astonishment, as the giant Ch'hog slouched over, 'what will it take to down this monster?

The clatter of blades striking against blade, mingled with the screams and grunts of tortured souls that cowered in the crevices, frustrated and angered Sianna'Q. Despite her predicament, she wanted to help the petrified slaves. She felt their fear as they huddled together, of the jagged edged swords that were thrusting into anything that moved.

Hells Bells! How do I get myself in these predicaments!
The meditative hum of the Q'ran filled the cavern closing the circle they had created whilst in 'shadow.' "OOOooo-omm- umm." Unnoticed by the warriors as they battled and destroyed each other, the Q'ran had silently moved amongst them. They stood tall and commanding, their sound vibrating through the ears of the Ch'hogs, piercing and deafening.

Oolio lifted his staff and pointed his spear directly at the battling warriors, forcing them to separate, creating a path directly to the giant that held Sianna'Q.

He strode silently; with dignity through the pathway, holding his staff in one gnarled hand and his spear in the other.

Sianna'Q managed to twist her head to one side, and watched it move closer. Oh, Oolio my saviour -- thank you, thank you, thank you, she repeated, as she attempted to take in a deep breath - to no avail. The beast was holding her too tightly.

A sinister silence fell over the cavern as all eyes focused on the tall, mighty Q'ran. Behind him, his tree warriors had moved within the Ch'hog ranks. Tall and fearless, with their branches and leaves rustling, they moved forward, rounding up the lizards that had thrown down their weapons in defeat.

Still the giant Ch'hog held onto his prey -- she was worth a promotion, maybe even Xag's position.

"Oolio, I would be very grateful if you would help me out of this stinky armpit!" She quipped, even though she was in pain.

"Ah -- you are in quite a sticky situation, little one." He looked down from his lofty height, as the giant Ch'hog lifted his huge, gnarled lizard head, and locked bulbous, with the large hollow eyes, that showed a slight glint of a warning.

The cavern was still. Ch'hogs were standing next to Sarandor'Q, holding their weapons at ease. All eyes watching and waiting in stunned silence.

"The Master Oolio. After all this time we meet again." Orion's voice reverberated around the cavern, shaking the ground they stood on and reaping fear into his warriors.

"Orion -- it has been a long peaceful existence with you in purgatory. You send your imbecile Xag to do your bidding. Is he the best you can come up with?" His musical voice rose high above the rabble, calming the energy of Gaia that Orion's warriors had ravaged so brutally.

"I have a solution that will not only deal with the Sarandor'Q, but with you and your forest of trees."

"Cease your warring and your stealing of that which you desire despite the pain you cause within your own dynasty."

"Can someone please help me? I'm feeling nauseous with this green blood under my nose. My body aches and I'm fed up with being under this pig's armpit!" Sianna'Q kicked her legs like a child having a tantrum, her face hidden by her dark hair, which flopped over and almost brushed the soiled ground.

Solace, I attempted to shape-shift to free myself -- something prevented the shift. I'm concerned Orion has some control over me.

Solace hovered down beside Oolio. If he did, then he would have allowed the shift to take place and would have taken you mid-change.

I hadn't thought of that. I just want to be out of this embarrassing, atrociously stinking situation.
