Jay El flinched as time restarted, and noted how his body moved as though it had a mind of its own.
...which... well, it did. The body did have a mind of its own. His. I mean, it moved as though it had a different mind. A second mind of its own. Yes.
Anyway, his body twisted and turned at supernatural speeds, as our view of him slowly rotated and the spines shot past him leaving small ripples in the air around them. His shield was obliterated in a glittery explosion as the spines all somehow missed him.
Jay El flew back down. "Manticores! Lots of them!"
While the group hadn't seen the manticores themselves, they had seen the spines, and Jay El's supernatural evasion.
"How you do that?" Tribby asked.
"You move like they do."
"Tribby never see anyone move dat fast."
Jay El looked down at his smoldering shield's remains, sighed, and finished up: "Not fast enough."
