1: Still pressed back against the portal, she is frantically manipulating the floating hologram runes.

Julia: Come on… come on…

2: The fleshy mass from within the mouth of the beast is revealed as the distorted face of Rati, straining a thin film of wet flesh. She’s staring at the camera, mouth agape and eyes burned white and melting.

3: The portal flashes to life, cracking open with white light. Julia falls backwards into it.

4: There’s no location for Julia to fall back into: she simply falls into a deep, black abyss.

5: Julia awakens with a gasp.

6: She’s on her back in the folded up cloth where she fell asleep, she looks around.

7: The sky is starting to light up into a bright yellow.
