"Well, the problem is that both of them need to stand down, or one will get killed," Vicky explains rapidly, "Tell him to take a few steps back for now, while we hold John down."
She makes another grab at John, trying to pin him down without causing any permanent harm. "Come on, John," she tries to persuade him, "Even if we ally ourselves with them, we still won't sleep without one of us guarding near them."
Kiwk stabs at John as he is held by Vicky. The spear goes
so deep into John that it nearly punctures Vicky as well. The kobold smiles a sinister grin with it's
devastating blow. Kiwk's chest puffs and his ego is fed by the terrible injury. This creature is quite simply a hardened juggernaut amongst its kind.
"Get a hold of yourself!" The half-elf shoves the restrained rampaging John.
John hisses at Kiwk as the spear goes inside his body. John knew it hurt but the pain didn't register in his mind. John tried to lift up his arm to attack but finally noticed Vicky and Guan trying to hold him back. 'If I kill this vermin I will lose the respect of my friends.' John tries to push off Vicky.
John turns to Vicky "You can let me go now I won't attack again unless he strikes me again, I hit him he hit me." John said with a calm hissy voice. John turns to Kiwk "Considered their debt repaid cause your life was spared."
John stares at Kwik not willing to take his eyes off of him. Kiwk is in a rage and shows no sign that he will let up with his attack. While Vicky is trying to prevent John from attacking, she's also very interested in keeping him alive. The current turn of events does not help her much to attain that goal. She looks in disgust as John is badly skewered on the spear, barely managing to avoid damage to herself as well.
"That's enough," she loudly announces. "Boyikt, if you friend doesn't stop, he will kill John even if he has given up." She releases her grip on John, not wanting to be responsible for his death -- once again -- more than she is already.
"If your friend doesn't stand down, we will try to knock him out," she calls to Boyikt. "We are not attempting to betray you, just preventing him from killing us. We will not kill him."
"If you got any better idea, let us know," she adds as an afterthought, but Boyikt looks lost in what is happening.
As the kobold attacks Jared begins moving and whips up his rod sending a stream of darkened shadows at Kiwk, the form of a snarling beast can be seen in its depth as it speeds towards its target. As the kobold staggers back under the attack, Jared says "
Draconic:Don't move, and it won't hurt you any more. We're leaving
'Getting out here quickly sounds like a plan,' Vicky thinks to herself. She quickly picks up her sword. However, Kiwk looks hellbent on killing someone, and this time she can actually do something to stop it. She takes a step closer, but dare not move too close, to avoid provoking him.
"We will leave now," she lets the two kobolds know. "I hope we'll meet in better circumstances next time. I want to repay my debt," she says, more to Boyikt than to Kiwk.
All the time she is talking, her attention is focused on Kiwk. She fears -- probably with good reason -- that he is not ready to just let them go. "Please don't attack us any more," she pleads him. At the same time she readies herself, should he not abide that suggestion.
