Clarissa and Mike wait by the door into the diner, listening to the monster rampage on the other side, while everyone else leaves by the side door.

Derek hides himself in the bushes as best he can, while Larry, Ray, and Jacob head for the gas station.

John heads for the front of the diner, intending to get the monster's attention.

John peers around the corner to see the monster on the rampage his heart racing and trying his best to keep calm.

He then swings around in plain view and yells "Hey A** H***!, come and get me! He fires 3 more rounds at the monster and starts to run down the road a little to buy Clarissa time.

The three shots hit home in the body of the monster, getting its attention nicely. It bursts out of the wreckage of the diner's window and runs after John, who discovers that he'll be hard pressed to stay ahead of the creature.

Mike and Clarissa burst into the diner from the kitchen as they hear the monster leave. Clarissa starts looking frantically through the papers strewn all over the diner, while Mike gathers anything he thinks might be useful in barricading the door once John comes through it.

John runs as fast as he can down the road looking back making sure the monster is still following him. John thinks to himself "This has to be the dumbest idea evef John..."

All the while counting in his head for one more minute before he starts running back to the diner.

The monster lopes along behind John, seeming to be in no hurry to catch him. Derek can see them moving along the road from his spot in the bushes.

At the count of sixty, John heads for the diner. The monster puts on a burst of speed to cut him off from the diner, clearly trying to herd him farther away from the building.

John tries to aim for the monster's leg while running to slow it down a little and fires two more shots at what looks to be it's leg. [He tries to aim around what would be the kneecap]

The shots go wide, being fired from on the run. John stops to aim, snapping off two more shots. The first hits the monster's knee, causing it to go down on the knee. The second shot only clicks.

[I haven't been counting shots, but it seemed an appropriately dramatic time for John to run out of ammunition and need to reload. The monster is on one knee, and is between John and the door he wants to go in. Derek is hidden in the bushes somewhere behind the monster, in the direction of the door.]

"Damn..." John quickly holsters his empty Magnum and pulls out his Glock but rather firing he runs around the monster a decent distance since he needs to have the monster to still chase him and he makes a final dash to the diner.

[If you're waiting for Derek to do something to help John, you've got a loooong wait.]

[*laugh* No, just delayed due to some Christmas traveling. Although, I would have waited to give him a chance to react one way or the other anyway.]

John tries to make a dash around the monster, staying at what he feels is outside the range of its tentacles.

Unfortunately, he's wrong.

The monster flings one of its tentacles sideways, unrolling it to an amazing length, neatly snatching John off the ground as he tries to run by. He can feel the strength of the tentacle around his chest like an iron band as it tenses, then throws him against the side of the diner.

Derek can hear ribs crack from his hiding place, and John feels the sharp pain as he breathes.

John gets unsteadily to his feet and half stumbles and half falls into the side door to the kitchen. The monster rushes in after him.
