THE SCENT OF RESTORATION

The first dart whizzes by his right ear. He turns unexpectedly to find that the next one strikes him square in his chest. He catapults over, confused and stunned by the sudden impact. Ripping out the dart from his body,  he slowly raises.  He can feel its poison progress through his veins.  As a last resort, he reaches for the flower in his left pocket square.

The Triton soldier now stalks her prey. She knows her target’s been hit. As she gets closer however, she’s surprised he’s able to stand.

“Where am I?” she whispers audibly.  Chûndra’s brainwashing wears off for a split second. She shakes her head now engulfed once more under the poisonous vapor.

This delayed reaction, however, was all the time Jeth needed. He snatches the muzzle from her face and exposes her to the bleeding flower. She now takes in a whiff and an electric current stimulates her brain synapses.
