What Lauren and Oleander had was several answers and a great many more questions. You couldn't film via the Kirlian process. It just didn't work that way. Frankly, it didn't really work at a range either, but that was why Vincent Moon was a genius and the rest of the world was not. Even so, the camera had been set to take a new exposure every 180 seconds, and it had managed to take fourteen photographs before it had mysteriously shut off.
The first couple of photographs showed Lauren and Oleander and the bull, practicing their swordplay and getting onto the bull. The first answer, and the first question, took place after the bull was dead, in the third exposure. The electrical auras were immense, to the point that the photographic plate was quite nearly unusable, just a mass of vibrant color. With effort, Lauren could pick out the bull from the center of it, but both she and Oleander were impossible to make out.
Then, beginning from the fourth plate, it showed a simple room once again, the outlines of Lauren, Oleander, and the dead bull all that was there. The bull's aura slowly faded, the life-force draining away from it, over the course of the next several exposures, until one reached the thirteenth plate.
There, in the corners of the room, were four new electrostatic outlines. Four kirlian auras added to the corners of picture. One was long and sinuous, like a serpent or worm, six to eight feet long at Lauren's best guess. One was a small blotch near the top, shaped something like an upward-opening crescent. One was definitely a dog or wolf, passing by Oleander. And the fourth was the size of a dinner plate but vaguely triangular, and moving across the floor. All four were incredibly blurry compared to the much sharper, discrete auras of Lauren and Oleander.
The fourteenth exposure showed those same four auras, but they were on the bull's dying aura now. The serpentine aura and the canine aura were both adjacent to the bull's neck. Tearing at the wound, perhaps? The flat, triangular aura was further back, near the bull's genitals. The crescent aura had disappeared, replaced by an oval blotch that was set atop Lauren's shoulder.
And that was it. The camera had shut down at that point, without, as far as Lauren could tell, any damage done to it whatsoever. It had just... turned off.
