As Alex and Vesper talk, the woman turns around. "C-c-can you help
me?" the woman says. "Our village is under attack. I have my two
girls, but m-my son, I could not find him before the creature started
to attack. I shall lead you back to the village if you promise to find
my son."

"We will try to find him, this creature what does it look like. Anything you can tell us about it
might be helpful." He reassures the woman hoping Alex will be alright with trying to find the womans son.
"What does your son look like, how old is he ?"
