Chapter 59

  • Teresa hands Thomas a large knife, while Minho and Harriet order their respective groups to get into a position to fight.
  • Instead of waiting for the monsters, the kids decide to attack first. Thomas takes his monster head on, sliding underneath it while slashing its legs with his knife.
  • Though Thomas slices the monster, it doesn't seem to do much. The monster doesn't stagger back or moan or anything, and it takes a swipe at Thomas.
  • Looking over at Teresa, Thomas realizes that she's trying to pop the light bulb growths on the monster attacking her—maybe this is how the monsters get their power.
  • Thomas takes Teresa's idea and pops one of the monster's growths; the light goes out, and this seems to damage the monster.
  • At this point, it's a free-for-all. Kids are attacking monsters and trying to pop their bulbs. One girl and one boy are already dead.
  • Just as Thomas gets near the end of his monster's bulbs, a lightning bolt smashes into the ground, knocking both him and the monster back.
  • The storm has arrived.
