    Administration


    The fact that there were no bodies was probably the worst part for Lyle as he stepped into the room. There were signs of battle everywhere including guns and blood and debris but no bodies whatsoever. The only body that did remain was the turian administrator, and that was currently getting chewed on by a metal spider.

    An elevator to his left opened and the miner immediately turned, bringing up his assault rifle just in time to have a weapon pointed at him as someone stepped out of the elevator. Fortunately, he was human and they both lowered their weapons at the fact. And to Lyle's relief, two more - a quarian and another human - stepped out behind him. While Lyle didn't recognize the first human, he recognized the quarian as Kai while the other was a bounty hunter that had apparently been here for whatever reason.

    "You all that's left?" Lyle asked while he walked over to the body of turian administrator. Remembering what Merlot had told him what these spiders were trying to do, Lyle pointed his assault rifle at the spider and fired a single bullet to destroy it.

    Four more days . . .


    Unknown Colony . . .

    The forth fieldd collapsed and the wave of light brought back the details of the world.

    And as the Asari turned her blue skinned head she saw it. Strangely silent, as if it had absorbed any sound of it´s movment it looked like a giant bug. It had passed over the abyss and now it´s six giant iron tentacles spread into all directions and just as it hit the building to it´s right, sound seemed to return into the world. Shattering steel resurrected the world and the howl of the enraged Reaper and the explosive impact of tons of metal in their surrounding structures fought for audio dominance.

    Then the six arms speeded forward in an attempt to kill a single tiny lifeform.

    Aleena.

    Administrator's office

    Kai suppressed a gasp as they entered to office to see the body of the Administrator slumped over his desk. It was then that she really believed that they were the last survivors. If such a secure place as his office had been breached, then the colony had truly fallen. The simultaneous arrival of Lyle did little to alleviate the feeling.

    "You all that's left?" Lyle asked, walking over to the desk and dispatching the single spider with a shot.

    "I believe so." Kai replied, helping Kesler over to the elevator. "I take it you got the transmission from Beyana as well?" The quarian opened her omni-tool and checked the lift for damage before summoning it.

    "Help me get Kesler in."

    Cira

    Level 5


    More.

    Slowly she stepped over Mara, as the woman cried out in pain over her shoulder wound. "You will understand." Cira said and realized Mara even tried to grab her handgun with the working hand. A kick and it flew into the sea of metal spiders.

    "No. No my dear." She whispered and one of the spiders crawled up Mara. She kicked it away and struggled back as the metal beasts closed in on her. Fear. Panic in her eyes.

    Cira only saw flesh. Limited, useless flesh. A moment in time where it existed only to rot away. Through her eyes this was already dead. What it was not yet was having a purpose.

    "You . . . you have become like Paul!" Mara cried out. A spider pushed a needle into her leg and Mara screamed. Cira shook her head. "Your limited udnerstanding of existence cannt begin to understand what I am. And what you will become. Welcome, to the ascension." Cira smiled and raised her gun.

    "CIRA! No. SISTER!" The shot hit Mara´s head and the body collapsed. One spider crawled upon her and began it´s work. Cira turned, still kneeling, to the others. "They are on the roof." She whispered into the dark and her dimmly glowing eyes saw thousands of spiders beginning to move . . .

    Aleena
    Unknown Colony, Emergency Hangar



    The eroding structures with their rusty interiors crumbled in the presence of such a refined machine. Almost uncontrolled the thing seemed to drag anything into death it came along. But it pointed it´s most deadly attention towards her. Aleena was surprised she found the strength to run and the will to shoot. Pointless, useless shots towards the thing gave her the feeling of fighting, as he legs started to move faster and faster. She jumped, leaped and her instincts forced her biotic implant into action again. Pure will began to charge her, began to make her body enveloped in the blue flames of her mind.

    The first tentacle hit behind her and split the ground. Rocks missed Aleena by only an inch or two. The second waved through the buildings above and made them collapse. Dust and debris pulled onto the street by the powerful pull from above as the structures came crashing down. Aleena used her biotic powers to puch her to into the air, leap to a falling piece of metal and push herself away from it with her leg. As he flight had reached the highest point and began to descend she was above the sudden barricade the collapsing buildings had created. She set down with force, her leg hurting as her bones almost broke under the kinetic might of such a landing. She did not stop.

    She kept on running. She saw the light of the shuttle now, bigger. She could almost make out the details of it. The ship was still there.

    So was the Reaper. A tentacle pushed after her, like giant snake making it´s way through the labyrinth of the city. It curled, turned and then speeded forward. Aleena looked back inthat second and allowed herself to fall. The metal claw rammed through a building she just passed. The pillars of pure adamntium bowed before her. And aleena looked up.

    It was a giant building. The tallest in this part of the city. Going up all the way into the darkness of the only imagined ceiling she had not seen once since her arrival. 200 levels? 250? Turning his enormous body the Reaper came closer now and Aleena turned once more to the building. The Reaper howled and the building ached in a sound that sounded like a reply. Metal was bending to it´s breaking point. Turning up her handgun, Aleena breathed out. Then she targeted the pillars and began to shoot. Shoot. Shoot. Shoot.

    With explosions of rust they burst into pieces. Aleena kept on shooting. It had to be dozens. She had enough shots to destroy ten at best. The reaper kept on coming. But she did not run anymore. It was an insane plan. But all about her being here was pure insanity. So why change strategy now?

    ooc: I actually got a day or two more if we need them, but so far I´d say one more posting-fury and we´re all done . . .


    Administration . . .

    The spider exploded into a million pieces and was hurled of the dead body of their former superior. In the neck of the Administrator there was a hole, as if something had punched right through his armor into his spine.

    Kai had checked the elevator. They were almost there now. One more level and then they had the ladder to the roof. At the large viewport they could already see the gunship passing them to land on top of the colony.

    Then there was a sound like thunder. As if thousands, hundred thousands of bides had begun to walk into one direction in this very moment. A roar of metal came from the lower ground and then a million clicking noises as from all levels, from all parts of the ships the spiders began to charge upwards. Manfred allowed Kesler to lean against the wall and ran to the stairs. One look was enough to see a sea of shiny bodies moving up. He sprinted back and look at Kesler and Lyle. "We needa hurry. It´s too many!" He said and closed the door. Looking over to the Quarian his eyes suddennly widened. "KAI!" He yelled.

    And just as the elevator doors opened a human arm belonging to a not entirely human body grabbed the young Quarian at her throat and lifted her up. From the back of the thing two weapon arms began looking for a target.

    [image=http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ln-amImMOiY/TcTfbXQpNQI/AAAAAAAABH0/7D0nZs6bJ9c/s1600/img_27531_area51.jpg] [image=http://blackfred.com/mainsite/wp-content/themes/tutorial/images/blacksite.jpg]

    The Hybrids face with it´s mechanical eyes stared into the Quarians helmet and opened it´s mouth for a silent scream.

    Elevator

    Kai screamed as the elevators opened and she was grabbed, lifted by the throat in an inhumanly strong grip. More warning lights flashed across the inside of her visor and a small alarm chimed to let her know that a suit breach was imminent. Kai barely registered them, however- her eyes flickered frantically as she struggled against the creature's grip, legs kicking uselessly in midair.

    Luckily, the creature wasn't squeezing too tightly, preferring instead to raise its weapons to point at her. Trying not to think of what that might mean, Kai raised her omnitool and sent an overload straight into the monster's face.

    "Careful of the lift," Lyle warned as he gave a cursory glance over the pieces of the spider that he just shot. "Reason I took the stairs was when I thought something was waiting for me in one of the elevators. I didn't take the chance to find out what."

    Lyle did not get any closer to the body of the turian. Instead, he just tilted his head to get a better look at the hole. Actually, he half-expected the alien to get back and start attacking. Merlot had said that those spiders seemed to be trying to turn organics into more machines. Did Lyle kill that spider before it could turn the turian? Is that what happened to the other bodies?

    Too much spooky stuff around here, Lyle thought. Can't wait until I'm out of here.

    That better be sooner rather then later. When the noise started, Lyle knew what it was immediately. It was the same noise that the spiders had been making when the whole swarm had been scavenging from the shop. But now the noise was faster, more numerous....more angry. Lyle had a feeling that these spiders weren't scavenging anymore.

    "It's time to get out-" Lyle started, turning to the elevator where-

    "KAI!

    Lyle was, at first, only able to stare with wide-eyes at the misshapen human that lifted the quarian into the air with one flesh arm while two mechanical weapon arms poised to strike her down. For a moment, Lyle allowed himself to wonder if that was the thing that had been waiting for him in the elevator near the MedBay.

    But that moment soon passed and action was demanded. Acting on instinct and adrenaline, Lyle bent down and charged towards the monster that held Kai. He thought about shooting but the creature was holding Kai too close and Lyle was afraid about hitting her and the creature. Which meant getting in close. Briefly, Lyle was able to see a sudden flash of something bright as Kai activated her omnitool but by then Lyle's focus was entirely on the creature as he prepared to shoulder charge into it, hoping that his environmental suit will give him enough mass and armor to knock the creature off and away from Kai before he would blast it with everything he had in the assault rifle.

    Considering the little time left, I decided to move forward. Hope you catch up, Dubya. My apologies.

    So close . . .


    Administration . . .

    The creature hissed at Kai, as the two weapons arms found their target. before the mining drills nnow perverted into weapons could pierced her armor though, her overload charged and unloaded right into the creatures head. The mechanical part immediately hissed and catched fire, sending sparks. The creature yelled out in pain. through it´s open mouth a scream escaped, like a newborn would cry.

    It stumbled back, but still held Kai. It still had her when Lyle reached them and rammed into the heavy metallic body unbalancing it. The creature finally let go of the quarian who crashed to the ground and stumbled back into the elevator. Lyle´s gun was already firing it´s first burst, ripping apart what flesh remained in this Hybrid. Blind and in pain the creature spasmed. Manfred and Kesler neared. But just as it look defeated the blind shot of weapon arm´s integrated laser-drill hissed through the air. Lyle felt the burning pain in his shoulder. The laserbeam had no impact. It just burned through his body to the other side. The second weapon arm came up, but send sparks and died down. Manfred´s omnitool had appeared next to Lyle and a second overload had kept the creature from doing worth.

    "Fire!" Manfred screamed, as the still alive thing tried to get to it´s feet. And from the Avenger V in his hands he began to unload every shot he had . . .

    And . . .

    Unknown Colony . . .

    As the seventh pillar bursted the whole level collapsed, no longer able to carry the wieght of the giant tower, it simply crushed, sending a wave of dust into all directions. Covering Aleena, jut the brightest explosion yet from the far away reactor send a bright tone of white into the cloud of dust. With a sound like a dying world the structure above began to bow. To bend and then gave in and began seemingly in slow motion it´s way to the ground. It folded and then buckled down. The Reaper in his undefinable form seemed to turn as on it´s giant, colosus body thousands of tons of metal collapsed, batting him into the ground.

    Five shields of the reactor were gone. And only a few hundred meters were left until Aleena reached the shuttle. If she survived the collapsing tower.

    ooc: I have been told my last post wasn´t the most comprehensible one. My bad to write an update at three in the morning and having drunk Whisky. Sorry. So the situation is:

    Well, you are in front of the lift and Kai got dropped there, too. The Hybrid grabbed her right when the doors opened. The Hybrid himself you pushed back into the lift, where it is still. So none of you is yet in the lift. Which is a small lift for personal use, btw. Not a huge lift for goods. About the size of the citadel elevators.

    The laser burned through his shoulder and Lyle did cry out at the whole that appeared where the laser touched. But it was just a laser. Where it hit, the miner's flesh cauterized. He would be fine; it was a lot better then if it had been a normal gunshot instead. And driven on by so much fear and adrenaline, Lyle was not limited at all in function.

    He was, however, offered clarity. As his shoulder burned, as people shouted and shot, Lyle felt a sudden unique state of clarity as his mind worked on its own, seeming to take over a dozen things per second and presenting them in cold, hard facts to the miner. One was that there was a hybrid monster in the lift. Two, they needed to use the lift in order to get to Beyana and evacuate. And three, there was a whole swarm of metal spiders drawing ever closer while they dealt with the hybrid.

    "Kill it fast!" Lyle shouted. "Get in the elevator! We don't have time for this!"

    Desperate to leave this place as quickly as possible - especially before the spiders showed up - Lyle actually ran up to the doors of the lift. Keeping himself to the edge of the door to provide some cover against anymore attacks from the laser drill and to let the others shoot past him, Lyle got as close as he could to the fallen hybrid before raising his assault rifle and pressing down on the trigger and keeping it so, firing the weapon at full auto. This close, he had a clear view of its head and Lyle did his best to aim his shots at either that or its other mechanical arm to shut it down.

    Killitkillitkillit! his mind repeated at light speed. Kill it and get in the lift!

    Lyle wouldn't stop shooting until the hybrid was dead or his gun overheated. Or both.

    Unknown Colony, Emergency Hangar


    [image=http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081129184122/deadspace/images/e/e5/Shuttle_editV2.jpg]

    Every bit of her body was pain. Her lungs seemed to burn with fluid magma injected into them. But she kept on running. Walking really. The tower collapsed over her and she allowed her overheated gun to fall to the side. She needed to get. To. The. Shuttle. Collapsing she was missed by metal plate catapulted into the path of hers by a milimeter. She hissed out and had a hard time breathing in the wall of dust. Forcing herself to the leg she ran though. She found the strength to make herself run. Her heart seemed to explode, her wound burned in her side, but she ran. She would reach the shuttle or die from exhasution. Her will did not allow her to fall down. To give in. Breaks were not an opption. The sixth fieeld went out with a giant blast of light which blinded her, just as she arrived in the small hangar at the southern wall of the mountain. She punched the console for emergency opening of the doors and ran to the shuttle. Before she had regained her sight she heard the thundering explosion of the shuttle door being blown into the planets dark atmosphere. Poisonous gas entered the hangar. Three mintues and she would die from it. It was a joke. She had barely 20 seconds and this mouihtain would vanish in an explosion of a full blown fusion reactor.

    She forced herself into the ship and hammered on the button to close the doors. Filters began cleaning the air. As if air was her problem. She couldn´t breath anyway. Aleena did not care about the seat, she just punched the engines into a cold start and then leaped into the pilots seat, by pressing down both accalertors. In the monitors showing the aft-paert she saw a light. From the center of the city and then . . . a silhouette. Of a giant tentacle of black iron entering the hangar. It was still alive. The claws of the tentacle opened woide and just as she saw them close in on her, the light seemed to consume them, as a wave of brilliant colourless energy swept from the center of the mountain towards her.

    She had not realized she ship taking of, but her landing gear was ripped of as the ship catapulted out of the mountain like a rocket, it´s engines full blazing now. Aleena screamed and screamed, as she dragged the pilotting stick back and climbed into the air, as the mountain vanished in an explosion of white light.

    The thing spasmed inside the elevator as three Avenger V rifle unleashed a firestorm into it. For a moment it looked as if would not die. An unaimed drill hissed out of it´s remaining weapon arm cutting the roof and send sparks and steam into the room. What remained of the flesh of the Hybrid was ripped away from it in a hundred impacts from the shots. Then it finally collapsed, just as all three gun send the peeping sound of overload into the room.

    ?In!? Manfred shouted as he turned his head to the corridor they had all come through. The first spiders arrived. The harbingers of a wave of these tiny creatures. Manfred threw his rifle away and drew his handgun, firing into the arrivals as he walked backwards to the elevator himself. ?All into the ELEVATOR and then UP TO THE ROOF!?

    Beyana reported in that very second with a simple sad: ?In position.?

    Lyle instinctively ducked his head when he saw another laser fire from the drill arm of the hybrid but his finger kept a tight squeeze on the trigger while the muzzle remained pointed at the monster. By the time the thrumming gunfire of the assault rifle ended and he heard the steady beeps of an overload, Lyle was relieved to see that the creature had finally stopped moving at that point. But he was only allowed to be relieved for a second. He still remembered the spiders and a look over his wounded shoulder caused him to curse aloud when, speak of the devil, he saw the first of them appear.

    "Inside now!" Lyle joined Manfred's shout with his own. Having been right at the door to kill the hybrid, Lyle was the first to duck inside. "I'm going to close it now!"

    That was just incentive to get everyone moving quick. Once everyone was on the lift - or were just about to get on in fact - the miner would smash his hand onto the button that would lead to the roof. He wanted to leave this place but he still had enough of a moral boundary to want to see other people, and not just him, live. So when the beeping of the assault rifle's overheat died Lyle raised it back up and started to fire short, controlled bursts into the wave of spiders that started to appear and try to slow them down to give everyone more time.

    ?In position.?

    "Getingetingetin!" Lyle shouted as fast as his assault rifle fired.

    IC: Andrew Kesler
    Location: Administration Office

    The creature was finally dead. The spiders found their way into the office. Everyone was yelling. All the weapons that remained were being fired. Kesler's head was pounding, his stomach was cramped (from the poison in the drink) and his chest felt like he had three new bullets in it.

    He was in bad shape.

    Barely able to muster enough strength to lift the assault rifle, he fired back at the spiders as he entered the elevator.

    Elevator

    Kai's suit alarms had given up warning her, dying to a burbling whine as she thudded to the floor of the elevator, her head rattling inside her helmet like a pea in a drum. Unfortunately, the quarian was allowed only a few seconds' grogginess before the urgency of the situation crashed on her like a wave.

    As the rest of the crew piled into the elevator, she lifted her arm and shook her omni-tool, checking it wasn't damaged, before starting to activate the doors. Her other hand found her pistol and kept it trained on the monster's corpse. Irrational, maybe, given that Lyle was doing his best to turn the creature into mince, but it made her feel much safer.

    ooc: No prob Dubya, I am sorry I could not wait for you. Last day, I´ll update as much as I can.


    Unknown Colony . . .

    The Mountain melted from the inside as one of the most powerful reactors of the galaxy burned with the power of a million suns in the eternal night of Moloch. No shock wave came, but air and atmosphere dragged into the intense heat like into a black hole.

    And above it a tiny, most tiny ship made itßs way out of it. It was all that remained of the giant structures of the Alien city beneath the Mountain. And of all people in the galaxy, Aleena of the Asari was the only one living who had ever seen it.

    Or was she? It was hard to say what it was. A rumbling? Steps?But through the veil of exhaustion Aleena thought she heard something inside the emergency shuttle.

    Administration . . .

    They all fired while making their way back to the elevator. It slowed the wave of spiders down only slightly. Across walls, the ceiling and the floor they now charged to reach the elevator and kill those survivors who tried to find safety inside.

    Lyle who had been in first saw at the end of the corridor the two bulky shadows of another two hybrids rising in the corridor. They would soon be here too.

    Finally Manfred entered the elevator last, half climbing on the dead Hybrid. the omnitool of Kai just made the connection in time and the doors slided together painfully slow. The spiders moved much faster.

    Lyle´s gun had been overheated again, now havinng shorter and shorter intervals of working. So it was was Kesler who fired a last burst to keep the fastest of the spiders from reaching the quickly narrowing opening between both elevator doors. The spider exploded and the elevator door was shut. It began to move upwards with the remaining survivors.

    Manfred leaned against the wall. "God, don´t these things ever give up?"

    The short trip left them barely enough time to catch breath. Only three meters and the doors opened again. Every gun in the elevator was pointed at the doors as they opened. And revealed an untouched lounge.

    Before them lay the luxurious private rooms of the Administrator with it´s huge whirlpool in the center of the first room and the special conference room in the back. Right there in the conference room was the maintaince hatch and leading to it steep stairs included into the wall. The howling of the X-1´s engines could already be heard from above. And in the air was the biting smell of Moloch´s atmosphere. They were breathing the planets natural atmosphere now. Three minutes. Maybe four and they would collapse.

    "To the ladder. I guard the rear." Manfred said and held his side. He looked at Lyle and Kesler. Then to the Quarian. His mouth opened as if he wanted to say something, but a rumbling from above kept him from doing so. Something had landed on their elevator. Depsite there being nothing above them but the hull of Ashen.

    "Go!" Manfred shouted and brought his handgun, the last weapon left to him up, as he left the elevator backwards, his gun pointed at the ceiling. "GO!"

    Emergency Shuttle


    The white glow seemed to disintigrate the mountain itself. Aleena smiled as she saw it collapse. Not even the thing could survive it . . . right? Only she had. Only she . . .

    A sound

    Her instincts made her leap to her feet, but her body simply could not. She slowly pushed herself up from the seat and turned. The sound came from the aftpart. Her hand grabbed for her handgun. It was gone. She had thrown it away assuming she needed it no more. Was there a gun on the ship? Certainly. But where?

    The implant in her neck burned, when she activated it. The blue fire of her bionic power began to dance arond her hands again. It hurt now, keeping it there. The implant hurt. Her whole body did. She knew it would not be long before she collapsed. But every second she would make count. With small but quick steps she neared the aft-part, leaving the cockpit. Ready to face whatever has sneaked aboard when she took of.

    And I got it Sirak. You´ll get your updates.

    Above the melting mountain . . .

    Under pain Aleena stumbled into the tiny room behind her cockpit of her tiny shuttle. And immediately found the source of the noise. It had been a collapsing body. Before her lay the blue glowing body of a Husk. Winding. Dieing. A defeated enemy, staring at the ceiling with hollow dead eyes. The remains of human. The face had a passing resemblance to Nathan Callum, her former squad mate. But it was barely gone, what made him once a breathing human.

    Ashen colony roof

    Kai shrieked as the elevator shook and scrambled for the ladder with a speed that would have surprised anybody that knew her. Mind you, these past few hours had been anything but normal. Adrenaline pounded in the young engineer's skull as she climbed up the ladder as fast as she could. She had gotten far too used to leaving crew mates behind.

    On the roof, she could just make the gunship out in the hazy atmosphere of Moloch. The lights seemed to beckon to her and the hold doors opened.

    "Come on!" she screamed, running for the ship herself.

    Aleena
    Shuttle


    Her steps were trembling as she neared the thing. It was symbol of the cruelty of her enemy. With it´s hollow eyes and Nathan´s face. It was also a sign of victory, in it´s helpless spasms. None of both brought terror or joy to her heart. She was too exhausted. She knelt on the thing, pressing it´s head down with her hand and gasped out. It had probably more looked like a collapse over her enemxy then her sitting down. then she raised her second hand and formed a fist. The blue flames crackled beneath her closing fingers. And with all the strnegth left she hammered them down with all the biotic might she still had. It hurt so much in her neck, she wondered if her implant would explode.

    Instead the head did. It broke open and then simply burst into all directions.

    It was dead. Like probably everybody else on Ashen.

    Dragging herself away from the body she crawled a few meters on all four, before she managed to regain enough strength to stand. The way back to the cokpit seemed to be an eternity and she finally collpased there.

    Above Moloch . . .

    The glow of the melting mountain and the fusion explosion below was now but a tiny spot of light on the otherwise dark surface of Moloch. The Alien City, the entrance, as the nameless Salaarian scientist had called the giant structure, was gone and with it the ancient terror it had held. What remained of this terror would probably not be found out for a long time, but against all odds . . . Aleena had seen it and survived. The fate of her colony and of her friends were unknown. As was the future and what it held . . .

    But she was alive. Something that could not be said about very many people who had lived on Moloch.

    Lyle Parker
    Colony Roof


    Once the elevator doors sealed, Lyle glanced down at his assault rifle as it beeped another overheat. Though he knew how to fire the thing, he knew nothing else about it. Were the repeated overheatings causing it to start to fail? Maybe the elevator ride would give it time to cool down a bit more and start to work better.

    He didn't expect the elevator ride to be so short, however. It only felt like a moment ago that the elevator doors had closed and now they were opening again. At least the assault rifle had recovered from its latest overheat and Lyle had it up and ready when the doors did slide apart.

    There was nothing there. Actually, there were a lot of somethings and Lyle actually allowed himself to utter a quick mental jackass to the Administrator upon seeing the lavish furniture and other pleasantries that the turian had apparently set for himself. All those cargo delays and setbacks that had marked the beginning of the establishment of the colony and the mining operations here. Had all this contributed to it? Selfish jerk.

    Lyle found some comfort in the fact that he was still able to joke but the seriousness of their situation came stinging back in the form of Moloch's atmosphere that had already seeped into this part of the colony.

    Control your breathing, Lyle lectured to himself. Don't breathe in so much, so fast. Might be able to give myself a few extra seconds.

    He hoped his environmental suit would help him but, honestly, he doubted it especially after that hybrid had punched a hole in it and wounded him. Besides, without a helmet there was nothing to stop him from breathing in the atmosphere; the rest of the suit was useless. In fact, Lyle wish he had a chance to strip himself of it, what with speed being the essence here. But when your life was on the line, Lyle soon discovered that you could do amazing things.

    When Kai took off, Lyle was able to keep up with her every step of the way. Running up the stairs, heading to the ladder and scaling up it in seconds. Lyle actually thought that they hadn't even reached a minute by the time they made it to the roof. And there it was; the gunship. Hoping to God that this was the final stretch and this would prove to be the horse that would carry them out, Lyle ran towards the doors of the gunship.

    Aleena
    Orbit of Moloch


    She felt her trembling hands fail and finally managed to lean forward and push the blue button. Autopilot activated. And Aleena smiled.

    ?I win, you loose.? She almost laughed. ?I am alive.? She coughed. ?Alive.?

    And with a sad and exhausted laugh she slipped into unconsciousness. Soemwhere in her mind she remembered the words of the scientist. The entrance to a whole planet of underworld caves. Her people. Ashen. Had nay of them survived? Any? None of these firghtening thoughts could make her care anymore. She needed to rest. To sleep. She needed desperatly to . . . sleep.

    ?Damned machines.?

    She sighed and her last thought was how many of them could be underground, still. If it was only the entrance areas they had seen, how many where under the planets surface hidden? Protected from sensors by Element Zero.

    How many?

    Millions?

    Billions?

    Waiting?

    For their Masters return?

    WE. ARE.

    ?Yes. You are.? She whispered and fell asleep.
