Suddenly, one of the rat creatures jumped down from above, slicing quickly with pointed steel. Kai shoved himself back against the door. The sword tip cut a line of blood across his chest as the door buckled behind him and swung inward. He stumbled backwards and rolled to his feet. A flurry of fur and gnashing teeth rushed after him.
He threw one of his daggers. His attacker simply growled while dodging out of the way with inhuman speed and agility.
Kai turned on the balls of his feet and sprinted through what appeared to be some kind of tavern. He weaved between the tables and knocked a few chairs down, hoping to slow his enemy. He heard the scuttling claws of his pursuer as he raced past the deceased patrons of the bar.
