The spear goes in even deeper this time, and the discoloration is at
least a couple of feet around the spearhead.

The monster's roars are definitely weaker, but a tentacle slithers out
and grabs the handle of the spear and throws it away [Strike: 15]. The
second the spearhead leaves its body, it seems to gain energy and
begin moving faster.

Alex is able to point the dagger upward and jab it in. The monster
shivers, but seems less capable of controlling its massive bulk and
does not seem capable of leaping off of her. Still the dagger is again
doing damage.

There are several stout logs piled about ten feet away. Vesper is just
about to grab and bring it back to hoist the creature off of Alex when
the vehicle veers towards Vesper, cranking the wheel at the last
moment and is now between Vesper and the creature.
