"Shh! It's been there for half a minute already."
It has? Every time Bina's seen this thing it's been either dead (by far her favourite option for it) or in a state of constant frantic movement.
"What's it… doing?"
Kendra and Bina have frozen where they stand, barely daring to breathe.
The dog, for her part, stands tense, a halo of pulsing darkness surrounding it, but she does not move.
"It's doing the glowing thing."
"But it's not charging at us."
"It is not."
Time oozes forward, like treacle, thick with flies.
"It looks… confused?"
The enormous skull fills Bina's entire vision. As she tries not to breathe, Bina realizes that it is moving, back and forth, in little darting movements.
>but not dog shouldn't appear, you already beat him… beat him again the same way but quicker! you know it's weakpoint
Unlike the last time, Bina has an idea what it's after. It wants the other Piotyr, the one in her head.

Kendra's voice is flat, nasal. Bina realizes that she's trying not move even her lips.
A plan would be good right about now.
She needs a plan, and quick.
