Sandy didn’t know what came over her until it was done. She ran at the gelatinous Mora with everything she had and leapt like a character from an action movie. She kicked out as hard as she could without hesitation and with no doubt in her mind.

Wet green splatters erupted over the trunks of nearby trees from the smallest pellets while the bigger balls of goo had disappointed, dizzy faces!
And that was it. Sandy landed on her butt and felt that far more than when she kicked the goop. Her shoe didn’t survive the kick either… Small fragments of the leather sole were sprinkled on the ground around her. Sandy looked up to see the largest bit of the good splash to the ground like thrown paint and simply vanish into the mist from whence it came.
