Malik took his hand and shook it. "Nice to meet you James, I'm Malik." He pulled away and started walk away. He looked back. "Good luck you guys. see you on the boat." With that he turned around started to walk back to the boat.
He was halfway there when he noticed Venom curling up under his backpack. He's getting ready to evolve...did he battle when I dozed off? Fin alone knew the answer as he remembered Venom miracously fighting a Spinarak away fromthe sleeping Malik. He climbed on to the boat once he got to the dock. Oh well. It's for the better.
