Nicolette and Bridget saw Skyril was in trouble and lept for Tanith. But Tanith was ready and tripped Nicolette with her boot. Nicolette went flying into Jack and the two of them fell to the floor in a crumpled heap.
Bridget punched Tanith in the face and a loud crack signalled that she'd broken her nose. Tanith yelled in pain and then dived at Lizzy,clawing at her face.
Skyril let out a roar of anger and ran towards Nicolette and Jack on the floor. Nicolette's eyes widened in shock and she rolled out of the way just as Skyril kicked Jack's head like a football. Jack cired out and curled up in pain.
"A little help here!" said Bridget fighting Tanith back. Nicolette ran over but Skyril was too busy beating up Jack to notice.
Tanith saw Nicolette and swivelled around and kicked her in the face before Nicolette could block it. Nicolette went flying. She fell to the ground winded and woozy.
Tanith took out her sword and slashed at Bridget. Bridget tried to reach for her bull-whip but she knew she would be a moment too late. There was only one thing she could do.
"Skyril!" she yelled.
Skyril turned around and saw that Tanith had Bridget cornered. If she helped Bridget then Jack might escape but if she didn't....Bridget wouldn't stand a chance.
Skyril had only a moment to deside. She sighed and turned her back on Jack. "Friends over foes." She said to herself hurrying to Bridget's aid.
"Oi!" She shouted at Tanith. Tanith turned around for a milisecond but that was enough. Bridget grabbed Tanith's head and rammed her knee into it. Tanith staggered back and Skyril met her with a punch to the stomach. Tanith span around on the spot for a moment and then crashed down.
Bridget grinned at Skyril. "Thanks." she said.
Skyril smiled back but then she remembered about Jack. She let out a small gasp and turned around just in time to see Jack jump off into the distance.
Skyril hung her head. She felt a hand placed on her shoulder. "I'm sorry." Bridget said quietly.
"It's k. I'll get him next time." Skyril mumbled.
They heard a low groan from behind them. Nicolette sat up and faced them.
"Did we win?" she asked.
"No stupid we're all dead and buried. Welcome to hell sucker." replied Bridget.
Nicolette frowned at her. "Hey! I've just hit my head really hard! Give me a break! And when I eventually die I'm going to Heaven!"
Bridget walked over and patted Nicolette's cheek. "You just keep telling yourself that Nic." Skyril chuckled and Nicolette scowled at the two of them and stood up holding her head. "Woah. I don't feel so good." she said wobbling slightly.
"Come on." Skyril said grabbing her arm before she fell again. "We've got Tanith and we'll be back in Ireland soon. We just need to wait for Skylara, Sarthacus and Cornelious to get the cure. I'll tell them to meet us back at the Sanctuary when they're done."
"That sounds like a plan." Agreed Bridget from behind them throwing Tanith over her shoulder as she said so.
"Ok." said Nicolette. "But can we stop off for some food first. I'm feeling a little faint."
