The air tastes fresh and clean. Bravely you step forward, from the protection of the column's shadow. From the corner of your eye, you notice movement and so your hasten back to the cover of darkness behind the column. You relax and rest yourself, when you notice that there appears to be only one other competitor creeping about the place! He too is hiding from column to column. If you don't make a move, he will get to the exit before you and save Fairy Fabula first. You check to your right and left and ahead of you along the corridor.

Your legs no longer want to obey you. It is coming!. You closes the eyes, and think only of freeing the beautiful Fairy Fabula and your imminent fate.
Two meres, 1 metre, - already the putrid smell of the monster surrounds you. Suddenly there is a flash of light. You rub your eyes, but eall you can see is some bright smoke, and some footsteps in the earth. Confused you pinch yourself - not a trace of Furunkulus! But from the far corner of the room comes a fearsome yell. Examining the earthen floor before you reveals the mystery to you: Furunkulus had been focusing only on its prey and did not see the transporter pad on the floor, which teleported it now to the other side of the vast hall.
You quickly take up position behind the next column on the way to the streaming light coming from the exit…
