Doras saw through the telescope of his freeze gun. If only his engineers had made the provision for a red dot to appear where the beam would hit, it would’ve been easier to shoot the enemy. Nevertheless, he was confident he’d win. A seven-foot reptile standing on its hind legs. He wished his guards had brought two reptiles. The danger would then trigger his ice powers.
“Game over,” he said and pulled the trigger. A light blue beam launched from the nozzle and reached for the giant lizard, but the reptile jumped and the wall behind it froze.
The reptile crawled along the ceiling escaping Doras’s ice beams that left star-shaped ice patches wherever the beam struck.
“Stay still, you annoying zilla,” cried Doras and fired more beams, freezing more of the ceiling.
The zilla didn’t slow down even when it neared the wall and jumped to it. Doras looked in awe as the zilla’s head hit the wall and the animal fell to the ground. The giant lizard lay still.
“Sir,” came Ace’s voice into Doras’s headphone, “I wish to remind you that your freeze gun had twenty capsules in it. You’ve used thirteen already.”
Doras turned around and looked at the window high on the wall ahead. A glass pane separated him from the two guards who had orchestrated this fight. Doras wondered if the guards had purposely brought a weak opponent this time.
The zilla placed an open paw at its belly and caressed it.
