The pack of weird looking fish stopped dead in their tracks. Angela looked in closer. Her fingers stretched out across the ice in order to solidify her balance.

The small pack of bluish organisms suddenly leapt through the hole with a quick motion.

Angela’s face had caught the brunt of the force, one of the organisms breaking through her helmet, and attaching itself to her face.

Its tail swaggered out from the broken helmet as it attempted to bury itself further into its prey’s flesh.
