Suddenly, a group of living corpses burst from the merchant cart village. The group becomes a horde as more pour out into the open. From inside hidden compartments, from underneath carts, corpses of merchant girls emerge and make a mad dash toward Ecks and Willow, stumbling and trampling each other without regard or relent. Not wanting to face a new wave, Ecks and Willow run toward Serenity, taking out a few dead girls that have gotten too close. Hands burst from the ground, clawing for them. They ignore them and keep onward while avoiding the wicked talons. In one motion, Ecks jumps onto Serenity and slides Grace and Glory into the holsters on either side. Willow hops on behind him. Ecks turns the key. Nothing. He tries again. Still nothing.
“Aw c’mon, you’ve gotta be kidding me,” Ecks said. He tries turning the engine again.
“Ecks, hurry up!” said Willow. The living dead close in on them. She destroys the heads of those that gotten too close. A hand grabs her leg. She crushes the withered appendage and does the same to the head that emerges with its mouth agape. “They keep coming! I can’t hold them off forever!” Willow hollered, felling two undead.
“C’mon, baby. C’mon,” Ecks said, still trying to coax Serenity to start. “Don’t make me get rough with you.”
The horde of corpses close in. Willow does her best to keep them at bay but they are losing ground. She takes out two that grab at her from underground and one behind when it takes hold of her hair. “Ecks, would you hurry the hell up?!” Willow yells, kicking a dead girl away before exploding her head.
“Why are you doing this?” Ecks said, turning the key yet again. Hearing a ghastly moan to his left, he quickly draws Glory and shoves her into the dead girl’s open mouth and pulls the trigger. He speedily drops the walking corpse on the opposite side as well. He gives Glory a hard flick, tossing the gore off of her before returning Glory to her holster. Ecks resumes trying to start Serenity. He starts to become a bit more desperate now that he realizes the gravity of their situation. He repeatedly begs Serenity to turn over. Now frustrated, Willow, after dropping another headless corpse, reaches over Ecks, shoving him aside and punches Serenity on the gas tank. Her engine roars to life.
“Can we go now?!” Willow shoots at him.
“Uh, yeah. Good time. Good time to go,” Ecks replies. Rather than try to grasp what happened, he revs the engine and Serenity takes off like a bullet. The undead give chase sprinting at abnormal speed. Ecks yells for Willow to hold tight as he hits the narrow path at full speed. Serenity drifts around the bend. Willow looks back to see the undead horde filling the pathway. They move like one organism. The undead on the outside are slammed into the hillside by the inside crowd but the wave keeps moving. If they get out of this valley, they will infest Tulpaar and Tulpex. Remembering that it rained recently, Willow quickly comes up with a plan to contain the living corpses.
“Keep driving,” Willow says. She throws her legs around Ecks and removes her arms.
The action catches Ecks slightly off guard. “What are doing?” he asks.
“I’m about to give these dirty whores a bath,” Willow said, holding her arms out at her sides. Her hands begin to glow. The sides of the pathway glow with ethereal light. Ecks watches as the light extends along the hillsides ahead of them. Willow leans back. Water from yesterday’s rain gather along the walls. “Drink up, bitches,” says Willow. With an elegant wave of her arms, she thrusts them above her head. A torrent of water is sent down the pathway, swallowing the undead horde. The living corpses thrash about in their watery prison, still locked in their pursuit. Willow then draws her arms in and thrusts them to her sides, snapping her fingers. The water compresses rapidly and creates a massive implosion, destroying the corpses and collapsing the walls of the pathway. Serenity carries Eck and Willow out of the valley where Ecks stops her. Willow sits back up. She and Ecks look back at the valley that is now blocked with tons of dirt, trees and vegetation. No undead will be getting out. Willow destroyed most of them. Any that have survived are now trapped with no chance of escape.
“I think you got ‘em,” Ecks said. Willow smiles and giggles. “Alright, let’s get back to Elanohr and let her know what we found.” He is about to drive off when he notices Willow’s legs still wrapped around him. “Willow, you can put your legs down,” he says to her.
“Why, I kinda like them where they are. Or is my silky smooth skin too much of a distraction?” Willow teased.
Ecks sighs. It irritates him slightly when she is in a playful mood, especially when the assignment takes a turn. Needing to end this game quickly, he takes his hands off the handlebars and drags them slowly down Willow’s thighs, causing her body to tense up. Willow tightens her legs around Ecks.
“Not fair, you know what that does to me,” she says breathlessly. She lets out a small yelp when Ecks dragged his fingers back up and down her thighs again. This sent shivers through her body. She relaxes back and takes in the sensual feeling. But it doesn’t last. Ecks pinches her hips hard, getting a yell from Willow and forcing her to put her legs down. “You ass! That hurt!” she snapped at him.
Ecks remembered Willow telling him during one of her drunken states about how sensitive body is especially her legs. His partner makes flirting with him a hobby of hers which is intensified when ale is throw into the mix. She becomes like a cat in heat and has at times thrown herself at Ecks. Ecks has used this to his advantage and learned to defuse Willow before she gets started. Just like now. He can play into her flirtatious nature to put her in a false sense of security before doing something to ruin her moment. Willow falls for it almost all the time.
“That’s not funny, getting me keyed up like that and then ruining it,” Willow pouted. She quietly adds, “And stupid me has to fall for it every time.”
Ecks chuckles and says, “Sure it is. See I’m smiling.”
“That’s because you get off on torturing me,” Willow shot at him.
“Perhaps.” Ecks takes hold of Serenity’s handlebars, revs the motor and continues onward to Tulpaar.
Willow holds onto Ecks as he drove. “Well, I should’ve known that you didn’t like my legs around you. You like the feel of me bouncing on your back more, don’t you?” she says coyly, pressing her bosom against Ecks’ back for emphasis.
Ecks sighs and rolls his eyes. This is one of the times Willow will not be deflated so easily.
As they leave the merchant carts and dead girls behind, as mysterious creature hovers overhead. It has witnessed everything that has happened from the moment Ecks and Willow set foot in the valley. Through its eyes, the creature’s master has also been watching. She smiles with anticipation.
