What if they were * intense nerves strike and she begins to shake* r-removed? by marinescientist

Like…take off?

*shudder wracks her body*

The first creature dug in its heels, yanking backward on the wing and shaking its head ferociously. The bones and sinews groaned one last time, before snapping loose entirely, sending the creature tumbling backward with the severed limb in its jaws.

The fog cleared, she was left looking at the ragged stump where her wing has once been.  Blood oozed from the wound, pieces of sinew and muscle dangled from it in strips like streamers from an abandoned party.

Then, she felt it.

Slowly, the cry came out.  It started as whimper before steadily rising in pitch before growing into a roiling, distorted shriek dancing with notes of agony.

*backs away, eyes wide*
