9U: To Attack Us, pt. 3-3 by Jenny-Jen 9U: To Attack Us, pt. 3-3 by Jenny-Jen

"7!!" 9 cried out in shock and raced towards her. Though the jaws had indeed closed above her, she was still visible since they were jaws and nothing else, but attached to each side was a chain mail prison from which she could not escape, clamped onto the frame with bent nails. The jaws remained upright instead of falling down, having trapped the tip of her spear between them which she struggled to get free.

"9, look out!!" 7 screamed as she spotted a flicker of movement behind them. 4 reacted by turning on her optics and dazzling their attacker. They couldn't tell what it was: small, about the size of a hawk, with small flickering red LED eyes, sharp gripping claws and wings that whirred and rotated, almost impossible to see with the naked eye. It was like a hummingbird, if a hummingbird went straight to the underworld and returned ten times its original size, made of metal and with a sharp, pointed needle of steel and glass where a beak used to be.

9 and 4 were only given less than a second to take in this monstrosity before they both bolted in different directions, taking advantage of its confusion. They felt it swoop by, trying to grab at them with its claws or stab with its beak. All the while all they could think about was fighting off this beast and rescuing 7 from her prison.

The light on the end of 9's staff was enough to light their way through the battle and he used it to distract the Beast, lashing at it while 4 climbed to the top of the metal jaws to try and free 7. She reached her fingers in and put all her strength into it, pulling at the jaws as best she could to try and at least budge them before a sudden attack to her shoulder sent her flying off her perch, crashing to the ground. 9's cry of "4! There's another one!" quickly brought her to and she scrabbled upright, helplessly looking on as the second buzzing Beast came towards her, brandishing its razor-sharp beak at the frozen Stitchpunk ...

I'm positive :D I've been focusing on doing the illustrations for the fic lately rather than writing more, so things are slow-moving.
