I'm writing a character focused fantasy novel.
The scarlet beast charged... no, hovered... no, rolled towards Karen. She darted to one side as it roared past her, fumbling for her missing phaser on instinct. The beast skidded to a halt with an ear splitting scream. Knowing better wait for another attack, Karen lunged forward. Her fists clenched as she bellowed a battle cry. She struck the beast on its nose, but its hide was too strong. The fingers of her forearm cracked and buckled. A voice cried out from... inside the beast. Karen looked up, startled to see a hideous four limbed creature emerge from what she had assumed was the beast's ear, whilst another of the creatures remained encased within. Karen spun around, hiding her face with all four hands as she darted away. "Holy shit," buzzed her translation matrix. "Sarah, get out here. Did you see that? I... I don't fucking believe it. A... a bloody alien just punched our car."
