Swamped Chapter 32 Page 16

You wait for Mantis to say something else, but he doesn’t.

Actually, he doesn’t seem to be moving at all. He’s just standing there, his eyes fixed on you. It’s almost like he’s meditating, but watching you at the same time.

The whole thing is really unnerving. You consider running, but you feel like it would be a waste of time. He’d catch you almost immediately.

You can only think of one way forward.

“What are you waiting for, exactly?” you ask.

“I am not sure yet,” he says. His stance doesn’t change at all.

Well, that didn’t clear anything up in the slightest. You’re almost thinking of walking off and leaving him to whatever he’s doing, except you’ve got no idea where else to go. Besides, he’s still staring directly at you.

About all you can do is puzzle over what he could possibly want.
