I had sat on the floor for a long time.
The Sun was just beginning to set when I heard the sound of an engine, about a mile off. I stood up and ran to hide in a hedge by the side of the road. I didn't want someone to find me and take me back to my mum.
To my intense surprise, it as the Bus! Such luck only occurs once in a lifetime.
Amazingly, I didn't even have to chase it down, it stopped just a few yards away from where I was standing.
I watched as Basilic emerged and ran away down the road towards Phoebe, standing with a huge cheetah. I swear she wasn't there a moment ago.
I slinked onto the bus, trying to avoid notice - and failing completely.
Then I saw Jesse.
He was lying unconcious in a pool of blood,
'Jesse!' I cried involuntarily, runnig to his side. What the Hell are you supposed to do about snake venom?
