the shadow and the light

[page description & captions]

[a view of lick's tail, casting a shadow on the water behind them, figures surrounding.]
[lick draws to the center of the light.]
[they finally come upon dusty, floating in the water and seemingly unresponsive. monstrous teeth and tentacles are swarming around them.
lick: "come on, buddy... let's go."]
[lick picks up dusty by their handle, pulling them away from the grip of the figures. watery residue sticks to their frame.]
[the figures take notice of lick, facing toward them. lick stares back, visibly afraid.]
[they glance over their shoulder at the train; figures swarming the windshield are now approaching as well.
lick: "dang..."]
