A Change of Plans, part 2
January 21st, 0165AL (2021)
Lt. Col. Duvanre: We will head up to the west of them, and try to corner them, understand?
Major Zargolf: Yes, sir!
They watched as the jumper took off and flew into the city.
Brian: I think that whatever it is that we are tacking knows we are here.
Major Zargolf: Which way?
Brian: Currently they are heading to the southwest.
Major Zargolf: We're going after them.
They continued to follow the lifesigns deeper into the city, and soon crossed M-11, now empty since the area was evacuated.
Brad: I don't remember ever seeing the city this empty.
Brian: The blizzard of '51 was probably the closest.
Brian: They went in this building.
Major Zargolf: Okay, everyone get ready.
Lt. Col. Duvanre: DPM-5 is on the other side of the building, we are about to enter.
Major Zargolf: As are we.
Major Zargolf: Brad and Brian, you go with Lt. Black, and Laur, you are with me.
Lt. Black: Yes, sir.
They walked down the stairs into the basement, and came to an open door that led into a large storage room.
Lt. Black: Where are they?
Brian: On the other side of the room, behind the boxes.
They aimed their guns into the room while hiding behind the wall, but before they could enter, there was an explosion from the other side of the room, followed by shouts and gunfire.
Lt. Black: What happened?
Brian: I think they met DPM-5... there is still one lifesign in the room though.
They advanced into the room while keeping their guns ready, and saw that the lifesign was a female muphridian, wearing a black uniform with yellow stripes on the shoulders.
Lt. Black: It looks similar to what the muphridian we found in Namora was wearing, except that one didn't have the stripes.
Lt. Black: (On radio) Sir, we go one of them.
Major Zargolf: Good. The other three got past DPM-5 and are on the run again.
Gen. Yelslew: Where are you?
Lt. Black: Basement of the first building the group entered, sir.
Gen. Yelslew: Stay there until it is collected, then continue after the others.
Lt. Black: Yes, sir.
Several seconds later, the muphridian vanished in a flash of light.
Brad: We have beaming tech now?
Lt. Black: I don't know... I assume that means that she has been collected, lets go.
They ran out of the back of the building and past the skyscraper behind it, then down to a road next to the light rail line, where they met Laur and Major Zargolf.
Lt. Black: Looks like the police got to them.
Brian: But if they are the same as the one we found in Namora, can they handle them?
They begin running toward the enemy though the cover of the forest when the saw a large green fireball erupt in front of the police cars, which traveled down the street engulfing anything in its way.
To be continued...
gabry85: Thanks for the comment!
KingTitan: That would be one big garbage can...
zelgadis: The building owners probably would be the ones to pay for the building damage... or the insurance companies.
Schulmanator: I don't think so.
crushedcar: You will have to wait for that.
Smarty218: Yes, I think you mentioned that you like explosions.
Joetropian1: And they may cause the city to start to leak if they hit had enough... There are some Maxis buildings in there, but the majority are BATs.
vivydu29: Glad you like it!
