Pandora took a step back onto the sturdier log and grabbed a hold of the
rope railing. Not entirely sure what to do next, she reached into
the rubber bag and pulled two coins into the air. Catching the moon’s
light, their reflection beamed across the crocodile priest’s eyes.
Temporarily blinding him, Pandora instinctively tossed them deep into his
mouth. He swallowed hard and stood silent and confused.
“Help me Pandora!!!” screamed Paige from the dirt pile, sending a heroic chill up the patroller’s spine. The silver coins had freed her voice. She now had a mouth again, and hopefully so did Blair and Reese. The moon remained still in the night sky. Pandora could see each log on the bridge.
