The cracked cavern floor heaved. Bwiki and Wiboom watched in shaking anticipation as chunks of ice gave way, some the size of a melon, others larger than a whole pod of Polari. Puzzle pieces of cavern floor were separating from one another, opening up sections of abyssal blue below. Ice chunks that shook free ascended to the surface, picking up speed and clouding the Podmate’s line of sight to the horn that stood impaled in the cavern floor.
With a second heave the creature broke through, scattering chunks of ice up and into a cloud around itself. Bwiki froze. He and Wiboom were trained to keep their heads even when facing great foes like a Megalari. But this was something else, something neither of them had seen before.
