Grimacing with disappointment at the Caretaker who dodged my shot, I almost missed it drop a boulder on my head.
Perhaps I should elaborate: Only moments after the big-robot-Rahkshi blocked my shot with a stone spar, it vanished, along with the large rock behind it. I suppose I should have been the tiniest suspicious at that point, but I was too freaked out from the sudden change in tides, and would've missed the Caretaker re-appearing above my head (while dropping the boulder), if not for its shadow.
My eyes shooting up, I narrowly managed to activate my Hau, leaving the rock hanging over my head. With a mighty heave, I threw myself out of the way, switching the shield off.
For a moment after it landed, the boulder stood perfectly straight, like a soldier during an inspection, before tipping over the edge of the overhang. Realizing my chance, I pushed myself off the ground, jumping at the rock with enough force to nudge it off and into the air, tumbling down towards the beach.
The wind whipped at my face, and I could already fear flooding my veins as one of my most insane plans took effect. The boulder, which I was currently riding to the ground, was hurtling towards the sands at, by my estimates, about a million miles per hour (give or take a few seconds), which might give me time to leap off before it hits land.
Or could just break every bone in my body. What fun.
About three seconds 'til I can jump.
Two karzkarzkarzkarz seconds
oh mata nui i'm gonna die
Suddenly, my body was pumped with adrenaline, as I hit the sands, rolling straight ahead to use up the kinetic energy which had pushed me off of the rock, before stumbling to my feet.
Well, I survived.
That was fun.

Sword. Sickle. Sword. Sickle.
I was climbing the side of the Shepherd's ship, managing to make good time, despite the very real threat of dying at any given moment. Fortunately, that Makuta hadn't noticed me yet, so, I still had time to get to the deck before he could try anything. Hopefully, he wouldn't be stupid enough to try and wreck his own ship.
With a last mighty heave, I hooked my sickle over the railing, provoking a wide grin on my face. I began swinging from side to side, trying to build momentum. Back and forth. Back and forth.
With one last swing, I basically hurled myself over the side of the ship, landing in a sloppy three-point crouch on the floor of the ship.

Pain was the first thing I managed to register after the Makuta hurled me aside. Next off, I realized that I suddenly full range of movement again.
Finally, I wondered why I couldn't move my right arm. Or why it felt like it was missing entirely. I struggled to turn my head, hoping that I would see what the problem was.
Oh. Well, that sort of explains things then.
I'm not certain if the stump where my arm used to be hurt or not (that was mildly distressing), but as long as I couldn't feel it yet, I was perfectly happy. The only thing I really regretted was that my sword was missing.
I braced myself with my one remaining arm, gritting my teeth, and pushing myself into sitting position. Flexing my legs as I'd practiced numerous times when I didn't even have one arm to help me, I climbed to my feet. My eyes burned with crazed intensity, and I clicked the clawed fingers of my left hand. These and my teeth were the only weapons I had left. I would have to use them well.
"A...deaf policeman...heard the...noise," I gasped, doing my best to walk back towards where my right arm lay.
