She stumbles over a table or a chair.
"Got you," says the Thorcini, who is surprisingly small but equipped with talons. He aims one long nail right at her belly ready to rip her open.
River kicks hard. Jenny springs out of the shadows, shattering a vase over the Thorcini's head. He falls with a thud, motionless.
"Well, that was surprisingly disappointing," says Jenny with a laugh. But then the Thorcini explodes in a shower of glitter and confetti and little tweeting birds that smack into the closed windows before flying down the stairs. "Oh, much better." She looks over at River. "Are you all right?"

Jenny takes River's face in her hands, kisses her cheek, her mouth, holds her close in strong arms.
