Alex feels her dagger quiver as the monster approaches. Combat seems
inevitable as the tentacled horror raises itself up...

And then there's a blinding flash of light and a great cloud of smoke.
As Alex and Vesper's senses return, standing there is the little girl
that had been with them when they came to New Camelot; the little girl
that Ted had insisted on bringing from the dwarf cave.

"You are Ted Smythe's companions." the girl says in a child's voice.
"We must find him and continue on. You will help."

The village men get over their astonishment, and then raise their
weapons. "This is no girl." one man says. "Kill this thing. It has
murdered old folk, women and children."

The cries go up. "Kill it! Kill it! Kill it!"

Alex's dagger still quivers.

Vesper knows the creature is still the same using illusions or shapeshifting to fool their minds.
He had almost forgotten till then that he had an entire rod of cold iron for use in dispelling illusions.
Still he had planned for the spear head which was ready.  He threw the spear knowing that even if he missed 
his familiar would use telekinesis to have the spear strike from behind.

Vesper engaged his forcefield belt.
