Though the Lord Barnes was nowhere to be seen its assumed He was there not that long ago and seems He left in a rather hurry, Sierra and Destiny make haste to stop the bleeding caused by a Revolver Sierra is shocked to see that Shiloh wasn't in worser shape than He is as the Bullet had exited the wound.

As Sierra starts up the Car and parks it next to the Window for Shiloh to jump onto Shiloh runs and jumps onto the roof of the Car just as the Poachers break down the Door.
"Whew that was close" says Shiloh after having nearly been face to face with Death.

However Destiny informs Shiloh that Barnes had Taken it from Her while She was Unconscious and that They have to find Him if They wish to get it back and reach Destiny's Parents.
Sierra mention's an Establishment known as maple pines to the North which is where the evil Lord Barnes regularly holds His meetings.
"So what happened to You Shiloh? At first I didn't recognize You?" asks Destiny "And seeing You kill that guy back there Shiloh What have You become?"
A quiet Shiloh soon discovers what it means to be Speechless only saying that He wants nothing more but to protect Her in this Harsh World and that by doing so means that sometimes it leads to bad things happening to others for their own safety.
A few hours later while driving past the main Road at sunset leading out of Benevolence Sierra looks towards the backseat of the Car and catches Shiloh and Destiny sleeping calmly in the Backseat "So sweet" thinks Sierra to Herself, Destiny awakens from Her sleep after Sierra goes over a slight bump as She opens Her eyes a Giant Birdlike Creature is seen in The Shiny surfaces of Her pupils She shouts
"its the Hollow watchman"
a Giant Winged Creature Swoops down towards the car and scratches the roof. "What was that?" Shiloh asks Destiny as She responds "He is the hollow watchman he is a servant to the King looking for Children and taking Them to Him" Explains Destiny. "Step on the gas Sierra" shouts Shiloh "Im trying this Vehicle only goes so Fast" replies Sierra. The hollow watchman moves in for another attack this time removing the Roof of the Car.
"We're completely sitting Ducks down here Sierra" Screams Shiloh.
"Hold tight back there let me try something You prepared to Jump"? Explains Sierra
"what!? are You crazy jump?" Responds Shiloh
"It's either that or die unless You have a better plan Shiloh Explains Sierra"
the hollow watchman makes one last attempt to stop Them and heads straight for the Car as They quickly jump out and the Car smashes right into the Birdlike Creature as it lets out a Hysterical Screech.
Now on foot and alone Shiloh must find Sierra and Destiny and fast as the 9 foot tall Birdlike beast known as the Hollow watchman is still alive and stalking Them in the Forest. Shiloh limps through the thick woods of the forest Whispering "Destiny ,Sierra" the Bird like creature stops suddenly next to Shiloh and it begins sniffing the Air soon it spots movement and reels back its leathery black feet as it spotted Sierra and Destiny Shiloh takes a Branch and whacks the Bird in the foot and it begins making a sudden loud noise as Shiloh, Destiny, and Sierra regroup the Bird runs after Them cornering them behind tall trees, Shiloh moves in front of Sierra and Destiny telling the Bird "If you want them You gotta go through Me first foul Beast"
The bird strikes with its thick sharp Orange Beak towards Shiloh as He holds the beast back with only a small stick as the birds beak gets closer to Shiloh he Remembers His Gun and grabs for it in his pocket Shooting the Bird in its body 2 Times as its Hide is so Thick it has no affect on the beast however the sound startles the beast just enough to give Shiloh and Destiny enough time to move out of the trees unharmed.
Shiloh shouts to Sierra to hurry up and get out of the corner but too Scared to move she stays put as the watchman comes back and takes a Jab at Sierra with its razor sharp talons and tears off a piece of Her jacket giving Shiloh enough time to notice its Yellow Eyes are made of Glass and Shiloh shoots it's Eye Blinding it as it lets out a horrible shriek in agony it claws at Sierra slicing Her open with its poison
"Shiloh" moans Sierra as She falls to the ground
"Sierra" cries Shiloh as He angrily reloads the Gun and Fires off Round after Round of ammunition into the Chest and Other eye of the Beast finally the watchman falls and lands on the ground where Shiloh continually stabs it with a Sharp branch cutting into the Beasts chest killing it.
