When our guide finally appeared before us, I did a quick double take as he was remarkably similar to Formo in appearance . The impression was somewhat reinforced when he arrived riding on the back of a tremendously fearsome worm monster .

[WHAT HO! ARE YOU THE DASTARDLY CREATURES WHO THROTTLED MY CREATION?]

I take that as my cue to step forward then .

[Ah, yes . Hello there! We come in peace! Had we realised that the creature we were battling had belonged to one of the Sophos, we'd have left it well enough alone . ]

This particular member of Formo's people shares much the same appearance as Formo himself . The Sophos are quite small, with thin, gangly arms and legs that support an unimpressive torso which in turn supports a truly impressive nonce .

Without eyes or perhaps even ears, the Sophos have an impressively bulbous head that they can't seem to hold up properly, resulting in a hunched posture that makes them look even smaller than they ought to . They appear completely hairless and somewhat wrinkly, which I can easily tell, since they don't appear to wear any clothes other than a loincloth .

[WHAT IN THE NAME OF THE CORE FORGE IS THAT?!]

I can't help but look around frantically to see what he's screaming about, but the guy doesn't have eyes! How the hell am I supposed to know what he's looking at?! His head didn't even move!

[I'm not sure what you mean?!]

[YOUR PET! HOW IN THE BLAZES DID YOU GET YOUR GRUBBY MANDIBLES ON ONE?!]

[Are you referring to Tiny? I mean . He's a big 'ol Gorilla . There's a few of them in the forest expanse, I'm sure . We can't be far from it, I'd be happy to take you . ]

[NO, YOU BLITHERING NUMBSKULL! THE LIGHTNING FIST APE IS AS COMMON AS MUD AFTER IT RAINS ON A MUD FARM! I'M TALKING ABOUT THE SHADOW CREATURE!]

[Crinis? Uh . Just got lucky I suppose?]

[GIVE HER TO ME!]

[Nope . ]

A brief silence descends between myself and the Sophos, who looks down at me (maybe) imperiously from atop his powerful worm mount . I get the feeling he never considered the possibility I might say no to that request .

[IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, THAT YOU OWE ME REPARATIONS AFTER DESTROYING MY CREATION . ]

Even if the volume hasn't changed, it feels as if his tone has become a little less demanding .

[You may be right about that,] I'm happy to admit .

[IF YOU GIVE ME CONTROL OF YOUR PET THEN I SHALL CONSIDER THE DEBT ERASED . ]

[No chance . ]

Silence descends once more .

[WHY?] The Sophos finally demands .

I don't have to think on that .

[These are not simply my pets . They are my friends . You don't just give away friends that have battled loyally by your side, that's nuts . ]

The Sophos glares down at me incredulously .

[BOY . THEY ARE MAGICALLY COMPELLED TO SERVE YOU LOYALLY . ]


I shrug my antennae .

[I don't care about that . ]

A moment .

[And how in the heck did you know I was a boy?!] I demand .

With his sightless gaze, the Sophos looks down at me, as if considering how to punish my disrespectful self, when a great booming laugh rattles into my head .

[HOHOHOHO! IT'S RARE TO SEE SOMEONE WITH A TRUE RESPECT FOR THE MASTER/PET BOND OUTSIDE OF MY KIND . WHAT A TREAT! A TREAT I SAY! AS TO THE OTHER, I MAY HAVE NO EYES BUT THE BLASTED DUNGEON CAN'T HIDE MUCH FROM ME . WE SEE MUCH THAT IT WOULD RATHER REMAIN HIDDEN!]

In a surprising move, the Sophos leapt from the back of his mount to land quite lightly before the head of his worm and drew near to us .

[MY NAME IS TIRIMON . ALLOW ME TO GUIDE YOU TO OUR CONCLAVE . ]

[Hello Tirimon . I'm Anthony, this is Tiny and this is Crinis . Nice to meet you!]

Our journey to the village was a little unpleasant . I can still remember the modes of transport I enjoyed back on Earth . Buses, cars, bikes and all that normal stuff . I never thought I'd yearn quite so hard to return to those simple times as hard as I did whilst riding on the back of a giant, slithering rock-worm .

You can't see a thing for starters . The worm is almost as thick as the tunnel, so we were forced to squeeze ourselves into gaps where some of the body ring segments were smaller than the others . Tiny and I smacked our heads a few times on the roof of the tunnels .

That would have been bad enough, if Tirimon hadn't then turned to apologize to us about having to shut our minds down only a brief moment before my consciousness was smothered from within my own head .

I awoke to find myself within a strange cavern with another Sophos leaning down to look into my compound eyes . Something about the colouring of his leathery skin tickled my mind . Or perhaps that was the mind bridge that sprung so effortlessly between us .
