-Maekrite and I gasp at the display of the laser-
— These guys have gone all serious! — cocks Portal Gun — Maekrite, screw those rules! We have to be ready for everything! The instant I mean the instant
they try something lethal, we go with everything.
(growls) — <Sure thing...>
-Cut to ten minutes later or so, Maekrite has been helping me evade most of the lasers thanks to his Detect and his incredible sense of hearing; however, we are only facing three turrets so far and with great difficulty, Portal Gun or not...-
-Then, it happens; as I'm forced to make a turn to another tile path, a turret emerges from the tile just at my right... Maekrite leaps and Shadow Claws the turret before I can shoot at me.-
— <We're done! To the exit!>
-We try to make it to the exit, but a last turret stands on our way. In our panic, we forget the properties of the Portal Gun. It shoots directly at Maekrite, who barely manages to avoid; then, as I turn to him and back to the turret, I see it aim at me, and shoot...-
-Instinctively raising my arms I feel a strong blast and then a thud; in my ears I hear a kind of bell, all I see now is the ceiling-
— <You monster!> — goes on a rage against the turret. The poor thing doesn't last too long. — <He... is... my... TRAINER!>
-Maekrite's ears pick up-
— <Silent! Silent!> — hops on me and stares, crying — <But, how...?>
— The... armor...
-Maekrite looks at my arms, the armpads burnt by the lasers but my body mostly OK, although I hit my head. As Maekrite moves the armpads, he sees a Nidoran-stylized symbol-
— <This is... El-ahrairah?''
-Then I try to stand up, and all alarms in the place ring-
