Abra, Dan, Higgs
Dan nodded as this part of Higgs spoke. (i will,) he replied, (but how? can you help me help them? help me reunite you with your son?)
Because this had to be the part of Higgs Dan had seen on the beach weeks ago, right? The grieving father who was tricked into doing terrible things just to be able to get back to his son. The rest of Higgs was beyond that point now, which would explain how he could attack Richie.
He didn't have much time at all, he knew that - he could sense the anger surrounding him, and Abra's strength and anger as well, and he knew something was about to happen - but he hoped desperately that he would have just enough.
