Morse swung his leg out over the edge of the elevator shaft, it was a good ten meters down to the bottom. Not high enough to die, but surely enough to break his legs should he fall. Breaking his legs was the last thing he wanted to do while these walking nightmares were around. He stretched his leg out, holding on to the retracted elevator door, his foot landed softly on the ladder running inside a service tunnel along the elevator shaft.

Stormhurst was next to follow, his M240 incinerator unit slung over his shoulder. He entered the service tunnel, looking up he saw Morse marine boots quickly pedaling their way upwards.

"Hey thats a nice ass You got there!" Stormhurst quipped.

"Thanks - You know I noticed You had some hair in Your nose..." Morse said while climbing. "I have some in my ass so maybe we can tie them together, to help You climb!" Morse continued with a grin, looking over his shoulder at Stormhurst.

Above Morse, Stormhurst saw a small service light at the exit could be seen well over 40 meters away.

Pvt Patch stood with his back against the elevator shaft, slowly sweeping the tracker back and forth. The tracker had a 180 degree scan radiues on the horizontal plane and a 45 degree scan on the vertical plane, so it didn't detect the movement above them - Should there be any.

"No contacts" he said to Sergeant Simovic who just nodded, before signalling to Patch to move out.

O'Brien started climbing just after Patch, the small ladder vibrated as the Marines climbed up on it - Ther boots making a soft staccato as the boots struck the steps.

Ishizawa entered the tunnel and started after O'brien, Morse was more than half way up now. Ishizawa started to climb and followed the other marines. He had climbed just a few meters when he felt something tug his neck, he heard something snap and moments later a loud metallic bang was heard. He looked down and saw in horror how his M3 binoculars fell away rapidly after strikin the tunnel wall. The binoculars spun through the air and struck the wall with a resounding bang just to bounce back to the ladder and the wall again. The Echo from the falling binoculars rung through the metallic shaft as if it had been a church - For a moment all Marines completely frooze and listened. Seconds ticked by. Then somewhere a single shrill sound was heard and then more were added to it, then the rush of many feet. Spiked tails banging against metal walls.

The Marines doubled their pace and climbed frantically. Morse reached the exit just as Marrine entered the ladder as the last man out.

Morse climbed up and quickly swept the dome, it was clear. But after a few seconds he saw something that made his blood freeeze. On the floor was a large patch of spattered blood. Just next to the console that controlled the elevator.

Kurosaki was about five or six guys ahead of Marrineo on the ladder. He mentally guessed the distance as about 20 meters away. That's when something flashed by him on the ladder. He didn't know what it was, but what ever it was, it blew their cover. Kurosaki continued to climb faster, nearly bumping into the marine ahead of him.

patch reached the top of the ladder and got off it quick, he could hear the noise and it was getting louder, he frantically scanned the area with the motion sensor trying to pinpoint the source or sources of the approaching threats.
the oncoming horde sounded unbelievably fierce, hungry and generally pissed, whilst  scanning for movement patch also looked around his surroundings to try and spot a good defensive position. these things were fast big and fucking scary, but they didn't have m41 pulse rifles and the motherfuckers had to get close to kill you.

Dirk heard the binoculars fall as he started to climb up the ladder. He held his breath as he listened for those things, It didn't take long.

The nightmares came running as fast as they could as Dirk climbed the ladder as fast as the man above him let him.

"Fuck! Go! Go! Go!" HE yelled to the Marines over him.

Ishizawa began climbing up the shaft shortly after O'Brien had gone through. Finally, he thought to himself, they would be getting out of this hell hole. Everything is going good, hope it doesn't all go to sh-

A tug on his neck and a snapping sound stopped Ishizawa in his track. It took him only a second to realize what had happened, and he froze in horror as he saw his binoculars plummet into the darkness of the shaft. He winced when he heard the metallic clang as his binoculars hit the bottom.

SHIT!, his mind screamed.

Without thinking, he began climbing faster. He knew what was about to happen. And sure enough, he could hear the shrieks of the creatures coming below.

Realizing what was happening and being the first one topside, which was unusual for him since he generally stood in the rear, Morse quickly changed out the clip in his M41A. The meter switched from 71, to 00, to 99 in a matter of seconds as he reloaded the weapon. He continued his pan of the Dome. The blood on the floor scared the hell out of him. It was human from what he could tell, which wasn't good.

He stepped away from the ladder and began moving at a quick pace to the center of the dome, to make way for the Marines coming up behind him. He got the feeling something was in there with them, but he wasn't sure what. He quickly grabbed his flask from out of his pocket, feeling the vial of alien fingers as he did. He quickly popped the top and took a slug off of it, sealed it, and put it back in his pocket.

Morse felt a slight twinge in his stomach, but he was fine, outside of being horrified of the current situation. His light flashed through the dark, but not much was to be seen, outside of the pool of blood.

"All clear up here, you gotta start movin your ass's cattle from crop fire... Come ON!!!" Morse yelled back to the group

<Tag Squad 4 and Section 2


"Corpral Sir, we got a puddle a blood, one of ours from my figurin!" Morse said into his com piece. He thought it would be best to let someone know what he saw.

Slinging his rifle, Obi watched as Patch started to climb up the ladder, following cautiously and carefully, as the last thing i need is to slip and break a leg, that would really make my fucking day, he thought as he swung out and grabbed the ladder and started to climb behind Patch.  



Silently the marines climbed up the shaft,  Obi looked down quickly to see his squad leader immediately below him.  Suddenly the silence was shattered by a loud clang of metal being struck.  Obi quickly looked down to see something swiftly disappearing down into the darkness of the lift shaft.  At first, silence, then the sound of a motion tracker started singing its song and the inhuman stampede of those things.  CPL Pitt snapped the marines out of their shock, yelling at them to go.
"FUCK!  We gotta go lads NOW!" Obi shouted as they began their mad clamour upwards.



Moving as fast as his hands and feet could go, Obi's head was nearly up Patchs' arse the entire way up the ladder.  As soon as Patch cleared the ladder, Obi pulled himself up and moved away from the opening to give the rest of the guys space to move.  Unslinging his rifle and pulling it in tight against his right shoulder, safety off and finger on the trigger ready to fire.  Quickly looking around the interior of the dome, he did a double take when his brain made sense of what PFC Morse was looking at. Jesus Christ, thats a lot of blood, Obi thought as he took in the deep red splatter that covered the floor and splashed up against the wall. Moving alongside Patch, providing cover for him as he kept up a continous scan with his motion tracker.

"Talk to me Professor, what have we got?"  Obi asked in a tense voice.

Kurosaki was climbing as fast as he could at the current moment, but he knew it wasn't enough. Marreno wouldn't probably make it. Lippa, where was Lippa? Quinn was a rock, no way he could fall. Where did he fit?

"Either that mate or there is that many of them so close together that the tracker can't distinguish them separately." Obi replied as those things continued to close in on the platoons position.  Marines still continued to climb out from the lift shaft.  "Come on marines move it!"  He yelled encouragingly.



Come on, come on, if they hit us while most of the guys are still climbing out, it'll be a slaughter. Fuck.  Obi realised as the sound of those things grew louder and louder.

Quinn watched with absolute horror as the binoculars fell and banged their way down the shaft. Freezing in place, he didn't dare breathe, let alone move. Then a spine-chilling screech with the clicking of claws and tails moving up the shaft.

"Oh fuck! MOVE MOVE MOVE!!!" he barked up to the next person in line, moving up as fast as that person allowed. He thought about pulling out a grenade, but if he didn't time it right, it'd just miss the horde completely, and that was assuming he knew where they were.

"The charge is still set at the bottom! It might distract some of them to go check it out! Move!" he barked, pausing as he needed to when someone needed assistance in getting up.

Simovic had been nearer the back of the ladder when the binoculars had dropped, he'd even had a chance to reach out to it but it eluded his grasp. He knew instantly that they were in big trouble but like the others he waited and prayed that god would smile on them, however their bad luck was continuing and screams of the creatures sounded out a few seconds later. Simovic started scrambling up the ladder and spoke into the platoon comms at the same time "MOVE IT ASAP. Form a defensive parameter at the top of the ladder, as far back as possible and use whatever cover is available".



Simovic then clicked his comms over to the Squad leader's channel "Kurosaki blow the charges when we're clear of the ladder, or if the ladder becomes over run" Simovic realised that the possibility was that a few lives may have to sacrificed to save the majority but the chances of a man surviving up close with one of those things was minimal...

Erik moved out after Morse. He did a 360 scan of the top side quickly. He then positioned the flamer for quick use.

He saw Morse reload and thought that was a good idea.

He went to stand next to Morse.

As the marines still continued to exit the lift shaft, Obi waited nervously as PFC Patchs' motion tracker grew louder and louder as the contacts closed.  "COME ON! MOVE IT MARINES!"  Obi shouted as the sound of those creatures shrieking seemed to drown out everything else.



A cold thought suddenly stuck him. No one has checked in with the dropship, if its is down, we are really screwed.  Keying his headset, "Stalker Niner, this O'Brien, SITREP over."
