A slight burst of tears followed from Martha until Dean rendered a speech on survival of the fittest, the laws of the jungle, the food chain and supply and demand.
Lost in the food fantasy, she didn't see Gabriel disappear into the jungle. Katie blinked and looked around, still uneasy with the snakelike branches that moved of their own volition overhead. She didn't know what kind of creatures followed or what other critters would live in the Immortal jungle, but she wanted nothing to do with such a weird place.
She waded through the brush of the possessed jungle, unwilling to admit just how scared she was.
Gabe was quiet for a long moment, leading them through the jungle in thoughtful silence. Katie felt the strange sense of something following again and moved closer to him.
Katie's gaze flickered from the snake-like movement of lively jungle trees to Gabe's back. Gabe's words terrified her. If the strongest man she'd ever met couldn't save her, what hope did she have?
