The Sacrifice

As I watched the fight from behind the nearby brick wall I saw the old women that had accompanied run forward in a full sprint.  At first I thought was she running to attack the colossus head on.  Then she suddenly flipped to the left dodged a strike from the machine by racing past it and grabbed for the potion.  As she grabbed for the flask she kept running and escaped around the other side.  As all this occurred while men and women sacrificed themselves at the hands of the man-machine hybrid.  The old women came running back to me and returned with the potion yelling for me to run.  I tried saying that I couldn’t leave but she refused to yield to my talk.  She pushed me as  she went back to fight, but as I left I saw her take a hit from the monster and feared the worst.

The End
