Knutson saw Sergeant Jonsson's life signs jump to an elevated status. The rest of his marines' adrenaline jumped as well. "What's this?" he said to himself. "Everyone's adrenaline just spiked. Something happened."

He spoke into the radio. "Sergeant, what's going on? Status report, over?"

After a few long seconds, the comtech's response comes back to him.

Hayden Knutson thought. He hated sending people into a hole in the ground if he didn't have someone near to pull them back out. He thought about telling them to leave someone behind in the APC, but he didn't want to detract from their combat effectiveness right now. Then he had a better idea. He radioed the dropship.

"Knutson to dropship, come in, dropship. I want you to head over to the AP Plant and find the APC. Land nearby and await further orders. Over" At least that way there was someone to help them back up or drive the APC if needed.

„We have already drove away one of these and we are prepared.” She was not sure wether she wanted to make herself or Jacob bolster up.
Was she in fear? She didn't know. She already saw the worst case at the APC. But in these moments the silence still was making her nervous. But after all they remained close to the sentrys. This might sooth her neves.

Laughter, briefly. The corners of Jacob's eyes crinkled as he did so. A smile lit his face. "Aint no thing getting a claw to you without finding out what a bullet feels like too."

He thought back to the APC. He was so far out of his depth. Aliens? Acid Blood? what was coming their way?

He heard the line from an old favourite song as clear as if it was playing through a headphone 'If you're going through hell, don't stop.'

"We'll manage. We don't really have another good option, do we?"

Lt. Knutson sits back down into his chair, glancing at the monitors. His marines were showing signs of elevated body temperatures as well as heart rates. Much like someone entering a sauna. A rattle overhead draws his eyes to the ceiling. Reaching out with his left hand he flips the radio on. "Honeysett and Graham, I have a disturbance in the command center. Get here on the double!

Corporal Sykes thought he heard a disturbance in the adjoining room. He grabbed his flamethrower and carefully got to his feet. He fell down on the floor with a painful splat. Groaning with dull pain, he stood again, putting all his weight on the right leg. In this way he limped to the door and opened it.

He leaned in the doorway and looked around the room.

Nodding at Grayham, Jacob started to move towards the LT's position. "En route!" He commed in. He hoped it was nothing, he steeled himself for anything...

Sykes felt fear coursing through his veins as he looked around the room. The morphine had worn off. "Jacob, Niki, get here now!" He stepped forward and sealed the door behind him. "The LT is gone."

Jacob did a double take.

"I'm sorry, gone?!"

His pace quickened. Rushing to meet Sykes.

"Where? Is there signs of a struggle?"

Niki followed Jacob without saying anything, when they reached Skyes her skin was pale.

„Gone? You mean he is dead?“ Nicole didn't recognize what was happen, but in her it was cold, warm, all at once. A kind of panic, for sure.
The last hours she could remain a marine, but now something broke. "The Sarge is gone, the L.T. is gone, we are dead." Her Voice struggled.
If someone could see the heart monitors, her heart was beating in overcharge. And Niki had to give in all her power to come back in a clear mood.
She did not want to die on this rock, so she had to act together.

But easier said than done.

Corporal Danny Sykes limped to the command center and peered cautiously up into the hole in the ceiling. He had his flamethrower raised and pointed toward the hole. "Sweet Jesus..." he said to himself. Danny picked up the fallen headset of the Lieutenant. He backed slowly away from the hole.

"Okay, guys. New plan. Everyone get into the operating room. The ceiling is solid, nothing can get in that way. And it only has the one door and the broken window to defend. To get at us they'll have to get past all three sentry guns and we bottle-neck them at the window."
<Tag Honeysett/Grayham/Priest>
"The Sarge is gone, the L.T. is gone, we are dead."
Sykes felt the same way, but he was in charge now. That meant he had to be strong. And he was a better bluffer than any of them. "Did I give you permission to die, marine?" He made eye contact with her to show he understood her. "There's 1500 rounds of heavy machine gun between them and the barrels of our guns. So after the first 500 die, we may have to stomp a few roaches." Danny winked at her.

He clicked his comms unit to talk to the marines in the tunnels. "Pitt, this is Sykes, over. The Lieutenant is gone. I think the bugs took him. We are secure for the moment. Get the Sergeant and get the fuck out of there. Whatever you need, just let us know."
<Tag Pitt>

Sykes let go of the comms and looked at Priest. "Priest, who the hell's in charge, anyway? With the LT and the Sarge out, it's either me or Pitt."

"Sir, no sir." Okay, the boot camp training was still working, but Niki knew she wasn't the only one thinking they were doomed. "Shit, I hope you are right, Danny." She smiled a litte bit.
Then she took her weapon and made herself clear to move forward to the command center. "Damn, if I go to hell, I will take some bugs with me." This was self-confedence àla Grayham.

Jacob rolled his neck from side to side. There was an audible popping and crackling.

He hopped through the broken window, took up a firing position before performing a weapons check.

He assumed the LT was dead and realised he didn't really care. Sykes, Grayham and he still lived. That was enough really. He assumed the other marines would return, most of them anyway. It was kinda their job to die in a shithole somewhere, but he didn't want it to be here.

"don't intend to go to hell today, don't intend to let any of you lot head there either." his voice was low, gruff. He realised he was clenching his teeth. His breaths long and deep through his nose. He just wanted it to happen now, waiting and not knowing was always the hardest part.

Priest broke in over the intercoms, he was not currently onsite having return with the Cheyenne, to procure some more supplies. "Attention Eights, this is Priest coming in, based on current events and the results of leadership training during boot camp I am temporarily placing a field promotion to Corporal Danny Sykes. He is acting CO and Corporal Dirk Pitts is your acting Sergeant. I repeat I am temporarily placing a field promotion to Corporal Danny Sykes, he is acting CO and Corporal Dirk Pitts is your acting Sergeant. You are under orders to complete this mission."
