Enura - Chapter 61: Entangled

The hunter galloped up the cobblestone, raising his repeating crossbow as Vissorouy fell away. As brambles swept over the hill, he squeezed off three successive bursts. Arrows whirred through the air and erupted, incinerating the thorny tangles, and flattening the hill. Dirt and thorns flew high into the air, blood spurting out the broken vines. While the brambles smoldered, Lawson veered off, thundering up the path, and snaking around the flank.

As he whipped around the bend, the hunter unleashed a second volley. Silver needles arced into the valley, detonating one after another, and severing the lines extending from the forest. Blackened tendrils flailed, desperate to shake the flames from them and rethread with the core.

Buckets sloshed from hand to hand, running along a human chain from the pier to the street. Snails squealed at the steady onslaught of seawater, pressing forward defiantly, and backing the men into the dock. One pounced, snapping a man in two, and tossing his remains into the sea.

Essinger cut off the advance, striking out with both swords, and fracturing teeth as they snapped down. "More seawater!" he shouted.

Saltwater splashed against the snail's wounds, scorching layers off its amorphous mass as the vampire carved it to pieces.

"Brothers, your women and children lie at your back. Do not founder!" Essinger screamed. "Hold fast; do not give an inch. The community is your shield; together we shall stand!"

The crusader bounded from rooftop to rooftop, glancing at the street below. Zombies pawed at the townspeople as they fled, aroused by the commotion. As they pursued, slugs exploded out of the mud, tossing women and children aside, and devouring the witless cadavers.

Essinger peered over the rooftops, and spotted the brigade ahead. Fifty men idled by the docks, staring listlessly as families screamed and fled.

"Hey," Essinger called out; but before he could jump down, the roof jerked forward. He tripped over the crown, smashing clay tiles as he tumbled, and snagging the edge of the roof with one hand.

"Please, help." A woman cradled her child.

"My lord!" Lawson dragged aside Lord Vangley as the cobblestone walk crumbled.
Demons erupted from beneath, black and gold stripes adorning their amorphous forms. One slithered out, spearing a cadaver with its crooked teeth. As it took the zombie in its mouth, a second monstrosity snapped off a piece for itself.

Laurent gasped. "They are nearly the size of a house."

"Any other infestations I should be aware of?" Lawson raised an eyebrow.

The behemoths snaked forward, twitching eyestalks dangling from their bulbous heads. They prodded the adjacent grounds, snatching up the remaining corpses before setting their sights on the hunter.

Laurent cocked his bow.

"No Laurent, you are too close!" Lawson screamed as he pulled the trigger.

The hunter dropped the cadaver, and sawed it open. "More seeds," he uttered. "No doubt this is a fabrication, but how did Enura plant so many so soon? Graveyards are scattered throughout town; even plots exist by the estate house. Surely we would have seen her."

"Perhaps they came with the rain," said Laurent.

"Seeding clouds would be impressive, but not feasible," Lawson replied. "Besides, why not just poison the rainwater?"

"I know from whence they came," said Deverrell.

"And so should you, just the same," said Dionte.

The hunter crossed his arms. "Well, speak."

The undead corpse of a vampire snapped at one of the spectators, before turning its attention back to the rose bush.

"That's odd," Lawson said, staring at the courtyard.

"What is it, Lawson?" Laurent asked.

Without answering, the hunter unbolted the front door, and stepped outside.

"Are you mad? Surely they will attack you." Laurent tried pulling him back inside.

"Will they?" Lawson walked to the center of the courtyard and stood. Zombies devoured the flowers and bushes, not paying any heed.

"They do not appear interested in us, at least not yet," said Lawson. "Without inhibitions, a vampire's first inclination should be to attack a mortal, but even that appears secondary to their newfound hunger."

Lawson gasped, and hurled his fork at the intruder. The zombie staggered, and then fell down, moaning at the splinter in its eye.

"Lawson, what have you done?" Lord Vangley stood. "I told you no weapons in Vissorouy!"

"My apologies, my lord. I guess I overreacted."

Tears filled Vangley's eyes. "Eleanor...could it be? Oh, momma." He stepped forward and embraced the cadaver. "Look at you, aren't you adorable?" He kissed the hole in her cheek. As he held her close, the shriveled corpse peeked over his shoulder with its one good peeper.
