Relief flooded through Nick as Lt Vincent's pulse rifle ended the threat from the creature trying to claw through the floor beneath his feet.The pulse rifle bucked and vibrated in Elieens hands as she depressed the trigger. The Alien shrieked and withdrew, mortally wounded, into the darkness below.
"Thanks for the save LT!" he said through his comm as he held Pvt Pyro off the floor.
Nick listened to the conversation between L Cpl Eagle and Lt Vincent as they discussed the best option for the situation they found themselves in.
"LT without Green, and his smartgun, Eagle's exposed out front. Keep Con here and send Honeysett up to support Eagle. Whatever we're doing let's do it fast. Head to the computer room or the engine room? On your word we go."James glanced at the tracker and saw that the alien lifeforms were coming closer. "LT, we have five seconds before this hallway whether in front or underneath of us is crawling with those black ugly sucker!"
Gently placing Pyro on the floor, Nick stood straight and brought his pulse rifle, from where it was slung on his back, to the ready position. Something had snapped in Green and it was Nicks job to make sure that he was alive so that they could fix the problem. Dead marine's didn't get better."Ron, get back here, now. Sarge, LT. I think we have got a runner headed your direction. It seems Ron has flown the coop."
"Steel, stop that idiot," Eileen snapped at the Sergeant.
(OOC: Did Green head past us or is he heading past L Cpl Eagle?)
Before Nick could chase down Pfc Green, he heard Honeysett over his comm trying to get the order to let loose some flaming death down the hole in the floor.Turning round and running back to the hole where the alien had grappled for Steele, Jacob leant on one knee and stuck his incinerator down the hole "Fire should spread some distance underneath this floor, compressed space and all that...." Looking to his superiors for permission, Jacob waited..."This fire'll be a deterrent to them using this again I hope, might toast any that are down there already too!, do I have permission to fire?"
All that thought buzzed through Jacob's head in a split second, looking back up at his superiors he yelled "WELL? SHOULD I BURN? JUST NOD YOUR FUCKING HEAD"
Looking at Nick, Jacob instantly felt sorry and said, audibly "Sorry Sir" on Nick's comline...
"Belay the flame Honeysett. Push up and support Eagle. Nothing gets past you marine!"
