Jason breathed heavily, his body was tired. A loud hissing noise across the canyon caught his attention. A large snake, roughly the same size as Iraad stood staring at him, his tongue flicking, tasting the air around him. Jason could feel the Myter trying to force his darkness to overtake him, but Jason had learned how to keep him out. As long as he focused on his own heartbeat, listening to its rhythm, he could keep the Myter’s powers at bay. The Myter screamed angrily, unsure if it could make it across this large hole. The Myter rose up toward the sky, until it stood on it tail. Jason peered upward, not sure what the creatures plan was, but he knew he didn’t like it.
“Chloe, I need you!” He screamed toward the fiery inferno behind him. “I know how to defeat the Myter!”
“Jason just stick with the plan, we have to capture Howakhan first. I will help you, but not until we capture the Puzzler.” She yelled back.
“I can’t hold off the Myter much longer, he’s figured out a way across the canyon.” He yelled.
“Just a few more seconds, and this will be over. Do what you can, and we’ll be there soon.” She answered back.
Chloe knew that Jason was almost out of time, but she was struggling herself, she wasn't sure they could hold off the Myter, let alone a fierce fire breathing dragon.
