Rodrigo nodded, quickly moving backwards. He looked over to where Eva had retreated from the steam, whom he assumed Travis was calling to.
"Hey!" he called out. "You get this boy and this dog out of here! I need to monitor the situation!"

Eva winced as she ran from the mist until she was at what she felt to be a relatively safe distance away for the time being. She was vaguely aware of Rodrigo's commands to her. Looking over, she saw that he was with Travis. She clenched her fist around her gun and shook her head, irritated.
"You do it!" she said. She stared out into the cloud of steam, but was forced to move back as it burned her eyes. "Where's Marius?!"

Rodrigo wasn't expecting this response. He stood there a moment, stunned, before realizing he had to act quickly. He nodded and grabbed Travis by the arm.
"Come on," he said, pulling him in some direction. "We'll have to get some distance away until it clears up."

Albert was not enjoying the dropping temperature, the felt lethargic and listless, it was something akin to being dropped in ice water for him. Eventually the pressure forced him to step to one side and quickly learned that the power of the cannon was not able to follow, as the steam did not allow for people to track their targets.

He takes two large steps toward the source of the water and with one large overhand swing attempts to strike the source of the flow, filling the air with the loud sharp sounds of the hardened metallic skin snapping and cracking as they are twisted and reheated by his movements.

Wade instantly felt the needle like fangs punch through his suit and into his leg. Unfortunately, the fangs venom was not slowed by the advanced webbing of the suit as they were totally bypassed.

He reacted within the second, touching the snake's head with pads of his index and middle finger. Within a hare's heartbeat a 300 volt 30 Hz electrical charge. This left minor burn marks on the snake's skin, however traveled rapidly through the snake and exited though the fangs injected in Wade, burning the broken vessels closed before too much venom was injected. The 30 Hz charge, did not greatly effect Wade's heart, the snake was not so lucky however.

As Albert stepped in closer and exposed his still heated flanks, Wade had a clear view of his target. He rolled the snake's head off of his leg and leaps at his target, drawing his two throwing dagger like weapons and hitting his flip-belt in a fluid movement. When he was roughly four feet away he threw his daggers at Albert's flanks. The two objects quickly reacted to Albert's magnetic field allowing themselves to dig into Albert, but still not hurting him too much.

Marius's vision blurred as he felt the steam sting his eyes. He quickly opened his eyes and looked around for the huge hulking figure of Albert. He saw the lumbering shadow of the beast behind him. Marius cursed under his breath and drew his revolver. The hot steam made it difficult to keep his eyes open. So as Marius ran in the opposite direction and fired into the steam in Albert's direction. He closed his eyes and hoped for the best. He hoped that perhaps the shots would atleast wound the beast.

Carlos saw Albert's huge arm emerge from the steam. He couldn't duck, not with the massive cannon he was trying to control. Luckily for Carlos, or maybe not as you will see in the following sentences, the blow was wild and completely missed him.

Carlos knew however the next few blows would definitely make contact at some point. He looked down to see if he could prop the hose against something and that is when he noticed his skin.

Carlos's skin was literally sloughing off of his arms. He realized then just how futile his position was. It didn't matter if Albert's blow connected or not, Carlos was as good as dead.

Carlos remembered back in the mine when he had stabbed Albert in the eye. It seemed to have some effect on the beast.

He reached for his long pig-sticking knife. He tried to pulle it out of his belt and his palm came off.

"Diablo" he screamed through the steam.

Carlos through great pain grasped the wood handle of the knife and drew it with his exposed fascia where his palm once covered.

He then dropped the hose, which like a great serpent sprung backwards and then upwards destroying everything it hit.

Carlos then stepped out of the steam and face to face with Albert. Carlos's entire face was melted off, sloughed on the ground.

The Rooster's eyes were burned red, he could only see fuzzy images.

"Diablo!" He held his long knife up to Albert's face. "You have killed me, again. " He tried to talk through his burned mouth and swollen tongue, "But as long as I come back I will harass you until I kill you." Calos then thrust his long blade into the direction of Albert's eye, again.

Dellister laughed when he took flight again spied Marius fire his revolver at Albert. The act was so silly to him, like throwing pebbles at a bear, that he nearly fell out of the sky with his hearty belly laugh.

He watched as Wade shocked to death his snake. But when Wade threw the knife at Albert, he laughed even more.

Was this their great plan, to bring a bunch of silly gags to fight with, knives and guns, against the hulking demon Albert?

Dellister flew to where the hose was thrashing about, dodging it as neared. He darted down on its head and picked and stabilized it. He flew a length of the top portion of the cannon into the air. And then he turned it on Marius.

Marius felt the water spray at him in the back. The water burnt his back as it quickly turned into steam. Marius screamed in pain as he stumbled out of the fog and fell onto the grassy hill. He hit the ground face first tasting the dirt and grass. The water continued to spray at him and he scrambled in some vain attempt to escape. He felt the sting of the cold water and just give in. He quickly turned over onto his back and and gazed at the blue sky. Marius lifted his head up and stared at his drenched clothes. He heard the Roosters speech at the bapist. Marius just couldnt help but laugh at the situation. There he was in this insane predictament. The beast killing pretty much his only ally and he was being sprayed with a high powered water hose. He closed his eyes and continued laughing as he tightened his grip on the revolver. Perhaps if Marius had not been laughing so much he would have turned the revolver on himself. Considering that death was probubly closer then he imagined.

Albert was still slow to react when The Rooster swung at Albert, and was squarely hit by his sharp knife, digging deep into his eye. Albert could not let out a scream, however did take a step back.

The solid metallic coating covering his body began to dissolve into the orange pools of metal around them. With his lungs now heated he let out his scream, piercing the air in a shrill tone.

He drew his sword back and with it raised over his head he swung at the Rooster again, knowing this time he would not miss.

Wade was quick to react in the few moments The Rooster had granted. He grabbed the circular plate that had hung from his belt. They uncoiled to reveal themselves to be finely segmented belts that had be tightly linked together. He gave them a few swings as he closed on Albert. He was two paces away and Albert was just beginning his swing, Wade launched them like a pair of bolas.

The wrapped around Albert's leg near his knees, and the other around Albert's arm and head. They both began to constrict around themselves, attempting to return to their original disk-like state of being. Their metal-ceramic composition yielding great tactile strength and high melting point. Soon even Albert would be unable to move.

With Albert's delay in movement Wade took out his last two daggers and drove them into Albert's shoulders, soon sinking towards the molten core in his chest.

Carlos' life force had all but ebbed when the large blade came down on the center of his head. His lobster red body was heaved cleanly in two, longways.

With his dying hands he tried to hold his body together, instinctively. But his fingers were useless to hold his body together and he divided and died.
