Paradox sat up quickly. “What was that?” He looked around his ears perked up.
She blinked as the sun was in her eyes. “What Doxy?” She put her wing up to shield her eyes. She looked up at him and her eyes widened when she saw something flying straight at them. “Doxy! Look out!”
He looked behind him in time to get grabbed by talons digging into his shoulders near his wings. “Let me go!” The creature pulled him up into the sky swiftly.
“If you insist.” the creature hissed as it twisted its claw. Pain shot through Paradox’s wing and he gasped as the creature let him go. Dox was able to spread out one wing but his other one felt like it was paralyzed. He twisted in mid-air as he fell looking up to see his assailant, a serpent like creature with feathered wings.
Silver looked up into the sky searching for her husband. “Doxy? Doxy?” She was so shocked that he was snatched away from her that she didn’t notice that something was slowly slinking up behind her.
Paradox closed his eyes and disappeared from the sky and reappeared on the ground he reappeared just in time to see a serpent creature wrap coils around Silver. “Silver!” He yelled and started to run towards them.
The creature looked at Paradox and blinked in shock. It hissed at Paradox as it held Silver in its coils. “Stay back. Or this mare becomes a beautiful mess.” It bared its fangs long sharp dagger-like needles.
“What? We didn’t do anything; what do you want?” Silver asked with a nervous shake to her voice.
The serpent moved is coils around Silver. “I deal with problem.”
Paradox’s eyes widened. “No. You can’t.”
“It’s not painful.” It hissed then it struck Silver in the neck with its fangs injecting venom into her.
“No!” Paradox screamed and ran to them.
Silver felt strange as she slowly fell to the ground. “Doxy? I don’t feel so well…” She said as she felt everything fade to darkness.
