And I finally did it!
Moments later, Lumina and Kuda sat miserably on the floor of the dungeon. The bars across the cell looked like teeth in a giant shark’s mouth. There was no way to escape. Caligo’s eel cronies—Murray, Garth, and Wormwood—guarded them.
“If you ask me,” grumbled Kuda, “the only thing eels are good for is sushi.”
Garth leaned in and growled at them. Grrrr.
Kuda cowered behind Lumina.
''I don’t understand,” Lumina said to Murray. “What do you want with us?”
“Patience, patience, my dear,” Murray hissed. “You’ll find out soon enough.” He slithered along a stone column.
Something about the way he moved jogged Lumina’s memory. “Wait, I remember you—from the reef. Aren’t you a friend of my aunt’s?”
Garth and Wormwood giggled.
“Oh, I’d hardly say friend,” Murray said. “Your aunt and I are more like business associates.”
Kuda raised an eyebrow. Something about this seemed fishy. “Oh, yeah? What kind of business?”
