She throws her sword between the beasts glowing red eyes and charges. Drawing the sword out of the beast she slits it from eyes to chest yet the lichdreki still draws its undying breath.
Gabriel staggers and collapses toward the door less the be allowed to ghouls burst in. He can hold it but a moment.
You pelt the beast with blasts of fire trying to draw its attention. It fails. A lightning blast hits Launa square in the chest and throws her backwards into Gabriel and the door. They are pinned to the door by the beasts lightning. You hear their screams of agony.
Calling on all the strength you have left you increase the amount of fire and undead flesh melts off the dragons backside. It presses the attack against your pinned companions.
"Ahh, damn it all!!!" you shout and leap on the monsters back.
You ring your hands around the monsters neck and ignite your hands. Searing heat pulses from cherry red to orange to yellow to white. You melt the monsters head off at the neck. But not before it's barbed tail finds its way to your backside. The arm length barbs pierce your body.
Blood seeps into your punched lungs as you continue to burn the lichdreki. Soon it is dead. You lay collapsed atop the beast, about to join it. Your last sight before death takes you is that of ghouls breaking through the door and carrying Launa off as tears run down her fair cheeks.
