The truth will out…
Dang you, Scotty! Dang you to Hades! You cost Tom his one chance to escape the Island through sweet, sweet death!
It finally loosened it is grip? (its/it’s).
I don’t think the beast was scared. I think it was scarred. Scotty’s shriek is like a sonic laser of fingernailed chalkboard and chewed foil.
So Scotty screams like a girl… wonder if he passed out as well! LOL!
