With some difficulty, you sheathe your sword and pull out your two daggers. Instantly, the light from the enchanted sword goes out - you're fighting in the dark.
You slash desperately at the bat on your face, and with a scream, it falls off you to the floor. You've no time to discover if it survived, however, because suddenly the air is full of bats all scratching, flapping and biting at you. A bat bites you on your swordhand and you drop one of your daggers. It is lost in the dark.
With your remaining dagger you slash and stab, but the air is thick with furry bodies and you're blind in the dark. It's no use - you're forced to run away.
