Slowly Haruko and the beast circled each other, sizing the enemy before launching another attack. The animal was one, he had never seen before, a bit like a mix between a bear and a bat, but that hardly could be possible, right? Then again, what was not possible in this universe? In all the years travelling through space he had seen and heard more outlandish things than he would have ever managed to imagine, so why shouldn't such a creature exist on this weird planet. Really, nothing should be able to shock him any longer.

Again, with a deep growl the beast jumped at him, but this time Haruko was prepared better for the attack and smoothly side-stepped the creature's long claws. In a swift move, he brought up his sword and rammed it into the animal's thigh, eliciting a pained roar. Haruko grinned predatorily, eyes glinting with barely supressed excitement. Although the fight was very dangerous, he did enjoy the rush that came with the adrenalin and it had been a while since he was involved in a real fight like that.
One of the large wings came swinging at his head and only at the last second Haruko managed to duck under the leathery appendix, not noticing the claw soaring at him from the other side. "AH!" he exlaimed, as pained shot through his side where the creature had managed to strike him. Haruko stumbled backwards, away from it and clutched his side with his left hand, keeping himself upright by using his sword as a crutch. Out of the corner of his eyes, he could see Sam struggling with the other beast, several scratches adorning his face. Still, he was managing, so Haruko turned his attention back to the danger towering over him.

Suddenly though, the creatures turned away from their prey and fled and Haruko breathed a sigh of relief. Sweat was tickling down his face and he rubbed it off with his hand after putting hin weapon away. "Brilliant fight, huh?" he stumbled over to the other two with a grin on his face. He looked down at Sam who sported an equally broad smile and fell to his knees next to him. "We did it!" he agreed with the sentiment.
