The creature continued placing as much focus on destroying the machine as possible, especially since the whirring was becoming visibly louder. In a moment of desperation, the creature let out a screech as dark tendrils ripped out from all sides to attempt to push the others as far away as possible. The two that ended up caught were Cerdic and Chrono. But once caught, the creature seemed to just hold the two away as their grip tightened. It lumbered much slower under gravity, and the creature seemed to realize that it was a now or never situation with destroying the extractor. The extractor sparked a bit at the next hit the creature gave.
