"Oh forget it!" Gort yelled as he proceeded to load the balista, "Would you at least help me aim it!"

Naeleen screamed as she was falling to the ground.

"Don't Naeleen!" called Doodles charging towards Naeleen with Cranky, "We got ya!"

They grabbed Naeleen with their talons just in time.

//9 for saving her.//

But Doodles and Cranky were soon pulled down by Naeleens weight, and were falling along with her.

//10 for the fall.//

The guard got back up and ran over to the ballista, only to have the wyvern bite at him again, causing him to dive out of the way once more.

Summer tried to sit up, still coughing, and reload her pistols.

Just then, a random man from a building ran out and shot the Wyvern with a musket.

The shot embedded shallowly into the Wyvern's side, causing it to turn again, now toward this latest guy. Annoyed, it just hurled fire at him and the building he was in front of.

//8 on the defense. And 8 on the offense.//

The man stared at the Wyvern with bulging eyes as the fire consumed him and the building.

//5.//

Naeleen, Cranky and Doodles landed on the ground with a thud.

"Ooh!" moaned Cranky, "I think I landed on my head."

"You ok Naeleen?" asked Doodles.

With the wyvern distracted, the guard helping Gort jumped back up and helped reload and aim the ballista. They had just gotten it into position, when the wyvern turned back toward them. There was no escaping this time as the wyvern reached over the ballista and bite down on the guard with its massive maw. It shook him around a little, then hurled him off in a random direction, sending him screaming through the air and over a building.

"I got it!" Al exclaimed, pulling out a black bottle marked with a big, red X.

"I'm okay." Naeleen moaned.

Gort drew his dagger but didn't advance toward the wyvern.

Taking advantage of the wyvern being distracted again, Al charged forward and hurled the vile at it. The throw was good, but the wyvern moved and the vile simply ricocheted off the creatures armor, then landed on the ground not far away. Amazingly, the bottle had not broken.

//it was a 9 against an 8//

"Grab that thing and throw it at the monster! But don't let it leak onto you!" Al screamed.

The vile was only a few yards from Gort, who quickly ran over and grabbed it. He then threw it at the wyvern.

This time, the vile broke and the liquid potion trickled onto the monster's skin.

"Yes! That acid poison will kill anything alive!" Al declared triumphantly.

The wyvern didn't die, however, but instead wailed loudly as it began to shrink.

"Uh... what's it doing...?" one of the guard's asked.

Al adjusted his glasses in confusion.

"The monster is going down!" cried Doodles.

"Lets get out of here everybody!" Cranky yelled as they ran away from the Wyvern.

"Wait!" Naeleen yelled at Doodles and Cranky, "This is just getting fun!"

Gort backed up a few steps, with his dagger still at hand.

"What's going on Al?" he yelled.

Al looked inside his bag.

"I think I used the wrong potion..." he sighed.

The wyvern kept shrinking, then started to sprout fur, while also changed shape. Within a minute, the wyvern had turned into a little kitty-cat.

"Yep, definitely used the wrong potion." Al muttered, facepalming.

Ooqi then stood up, walked towards it and outstretched his hand.

"Come here little kitty." he said softly.

Cranky and Doodles jaws dropped.

They were completely shocked from what they saw.

"I don't believe what I just saw." gasped Doodles.

"Now we can't kill that...that...oh never mind!" complained Cranky, "He's too cute now."

The cat ran toward Ooqi and hissed at him, as if it was trying to breath fire... but it couldn't, which made it run around in circles like a crazy cat.

Ooqi walked over to it and began to stroke it's head, hoping it wouldn't scratch him.

The cat kept running around, making it almost impossible for Ooqi to be able to pet it.

"This is funny!" Summer laughed.

The guards were, a bit confused, but relieved.

"You saved the town!" one of them declared, mostly in the direction of Gort.

Gort motioned toward Al.

"There is the man you should really thank. Without his potions the wyvern would still be... big."

Ooqi meanwhile, was still trying to catch the cat, though he had become a bit more aggressive and was trying to pick it up.

Summer was laughing at Ooqi trying the catch the cat, which now seemed to be specifically running away from him.

"Why, thank you. It only goes to prove that wit wins battles." Al boasted to the guards.

"Like speaking of men," interrupted Doodles, "Where's the commander?"
