Casper froze as he heard Cassie's scream. "Keep going!" he shouted to Clara and Shiralee, before running back, out of the shadowed woods. His eyes settled on the van, and at the same time, he stopped breathing.
No, not Cassie.
Please not Cassie.
If the van had been any further ahead, he wouldn't have been able to keep up with it, due to the fast speed at which it was going.
His fingers grabbed at the back of the van, but then slipped away.
Ignoring his rapidly pounding heart, he ran towards the van again, leaping up towards the back as he grabbed hold of the edge of the van's rear.
The man in the front of the trunk glanced back in the rear-view mirror. "He's coming. It worked", he grinned, the man beside him revealing a gun from his belt. He ducked his head out the window, firing a wave of bullets in Casper's direction. He missed.
Casper climbed up along the top of the van, which was difficult to do due to the thick winds and rapid speed of the vehicle. Then he was face-to-face with another man, whom had crawled out from inside the truck. The man swung a fist at him, and then a second, but a snake unravelled itself from under Casper's sleeve, and struck the man in the eye, which caused him to scream out in agony. While he had the chance, Casper kicked the man in the ribs, sending him flying off the edge of the van, and down the side of a rocky hill.
He moved along the front of the van until he was as far as he could go, before leaping down by the windscreen. The van swayed dangerously as the driver released his grip on the wheel, but straightened again as the shock passed. "Get rid of him!" the man commanded furiously.
Casper dodged the attack before another wave of bullets were sent through the windscreen in his direction, swinging himself into the front of the van as soon as he claimed the chance. He crashed through the already broken windscreen, ignoring the glass as it shattered over and around him.
He wouldn't let them take Cassie.
He threw a punch at the driver, which caused the van to sway again before settling on the right path. The tires screeched as they sped along the road, which distracted the driver for a moment, long enough for Casper to hit him again, which sent him into unconsciousness. The van skidded to a halt as the man's limp body collapsed out of the driver's seat.
Casper made his way to the back of the van, where the man was striking Cassie with a cane.
