Hi, this is my first fanfic, so don't be to harsh, I had a cool idea for a story and wanted to share
Private First Class Carlos Jakson peeked around the burnt car he was behind and gasped at what he saw, the scouts were right, this was no regular locust. It was massive with large energy weapons on each of it's monstrous arms and one on it's broad muscular back. It looked like a mutated gorilla with all of its hair and by the way it moved. Carlos thought about the possibility of capturing it for study, but then changed his mind. It was headed towards the temporary HQ, so he quickly thought of how to take it out. His bolo grenades might do the trick, but he didn't really trust his aim so he descided on the hammer of dawn.
His voice crackled onto the team chat speakers as he checked on his teams status, "Team report in, this is Red 3" he said in a hushed tone, fearing not to arouse the locust beast.
"Red 1 is good, I am in position in a building by the monster" this was the voice of Carlos's best friend Damien Krillmer. They went way back, back when Carlos joined up, Damien was there to welcome him to the squad. They had grown nearly inseperable since.
"All systems go for Red 4 as usual, I am in the sewer below the beast ready with charges" said the energetic voice of the Squad's newest member, Roland Ice. He was the team's demolition specialist because the last one was killed in action defusing a bomb nearly two weeks ago.
"No, no demo charges this time Roland, we are using the hammer of dawn so retreat back to my six.
"This is Red 2 reporting in" said the voice of the teams scout, Tom Bastien "I am behind a dumpster a block ahead of the beast. Tom was an expert at stealth and special ops, and was waiting to be promoted to a different unit.
"OK team, on 3 me and Damien use the Hammer of dawn, the rest of you stay put." said Carlos as Roland climbed out of a manhole behind him.
Three seconds later there was a howl of rage as the monster felt the first of the laser, then Damien added his a second later and the monster burst into flame like one of the strike anywhere matches used by gears to light their contra-brand cigarettes.
"What the hell was that thing" said Tom as they regrouped at Carlos' possition and made their way towards the temporary HQ in the parliment building of the medium sized city of Wenlew.
"I don't know but I don't want to meet one in close quarters, that's for sure" said Carlos, his last words dying in his throught as they turned the corner to see the HQ. There were bodies of both men and locust strewn around the courtyard, and the remains of makeshift bunkers were still smouldering from the beating they took, a constant reminder of a battle still raging in the mind's of the survivors that were sitting all over the battlefield or looking at the bodies of their dead soldiers, comrades, friends. A few had gathered enough strength to scavenge for supplies on the bodies, but it was more of a zombie-like shuffle than a scavenge.
When they met the guard at the big oak double doors of the parliment building, Damien asked "What the hell happened here"
The guard was a little disturbed, but managed to answer. "We were just setting up defences when one of our scouts came back covered in blood and badly shaken, but he had enough sence left in him to tell us of a massive locust army aproaching our position. We aren't sure what happened to his bartener, but judging from the bite out of the scouts bicep, we think he was eaten by a drone." The guard fought back repulsion and carried on"That's when all hell broke loose, the bunkers we placed to slow the drones were either blown away by this big monster, or simply jumped over. They fight like deamons up close, the locusts, they would rip a mans throat out and step by onto the next victim. Our only reprive was the King Raven air support. They bombed the attackers and pelted them with MG fire before the brunt of them got to us." The guard sighed, that's all I can say, all newcomers are to see the CO, Follow me, I'll take you to him."
With that the guard turned on his heel and walked down the hall, Red squad following close behind
I hope you liked it, as i said, it is my first.
