Luck finally seemed to smile down on Terrence, Shane, Beth, Taduesz, Kamilla, Frieda, Ophelia and Bertha. Just ahead they saw an opening towards the open water with another boat just ahead of them and a few more behind. By now most people had managed to get into boats and were loading injured people into some of the larger boats. The snow still blew through the air, mixing with the embers and ash from the fire. The smoke was now billowing almost a mile into the sky, obscuring many of the buildings.
Beth just happened to look to her left and saw the bell tower two blocks away. And there at it’s top was Beatrice firing arrows at Smaug as he passed by. A strange mixture of joy and shock went through her when she saw her mother.

“They just bounced off his scales like pebbles!” Mushu piped up.

In Beatrice’s house, Shane and Taduesz were doing their best to keep order while Ophelia, Bertha and Frieda hastily helped Beth and Terrence pack their things.
“Remember, only pack what you need!” Shane ordered “Where are the weapons mom had?!”
“They’re under her bed just like I said!” Beth replied from the bedroom.
“Bring them along!” Shane barked.
There was a thudding noise and Taduesz and Shane looked to see Bertha helping Kamilla up off the floor as Ophelia walked into the room wearing a grey otter coat and with a knapsack round her right shoulder.
“Kamilla, you’re leg still isn’t well enough to walk!” she said.
“But I can walk!” Kamilla insisted.
