“It’s a caterpile nest,” Reyn whispered. Shulk edged off to the left; there was a gap in the wall there. “The little ones are all right, but the big one will attack us as soon as we get anywhere near it.” Fiora followed Shulk and Reyn through the gap in the wall. The path took a slight uphill slant.
“This path will take us above the caterpile,” Shulk informed Fiora. “It can’t attack us up here.” They found themselves on the rock overhanging the nest. It followed through to the opposite wall and curved out of sight.
Reyn kicked a rock off their bridge, which bounced off the wall and hit the caterpile’s tail. The creature reared up and started wiggling towards them, the other, smaller caterpiles following suit.
“Reyn, what have you done!!” Fiora shouted, panicked.
