::The Last Epoch-"20"::Retribution
About one minute later I heard the marching cease. Then a metallic shifting sound reverberated down toward us from the head of the hallway. The great doors widened to reveal a small army in blue cloaks as the woman before them. The men in blue cloaks had disciplined, dead eyes. Their leader strode in front pompously as to show authority. He raised a palm to the air and spoke in Kilan. I did not understand what he was saying but it definitely seemed to have strong meaning. Just then all the holo-field doors in the cellblock opened and we were free. An uproarious cheering rose from the suspenseful silence that preceded our salvation.
Gig! Were free?! Lets go find the others before those guards show up with their trouble, I called over the joyous celebration. Right. But lets do it quietly, he shouted, We dont want to get on these blue guys bad side either. Were a third of their size, he hollered cautiously to m
::The Last Epoch-"19"::Angel Encounter
Oblivious to the passing of time, I smelled a familiar rotting of flesh. Yet again I woke in a Prison cell with an invisible energy window. I looked around the musty, damp, cramped hell of a room and noticed I was not to be lonely. Locked away with imprisoned with Gig. He lay asleep on his side like a baby comfortable in his cradle. All our possessions were taken except for the clothes on our backs. I agitate him conscious, Get up, do you know how many revolting diseases are probably on this floor?! It was like waking an unconscious bull. A dramatized inhaling shocked him awake as if he had a nightmare. Where am I? Im not sure? I answered in anguish. What is that thing on your neck? Youve got a big smudge, Gig groaned. Where? Right there on your neck, here Ill get it he offered with a licked thumb. No thanks. Ill leave it there . . . I groaned. Wait, you
::The Last Epoch-"18"::Ensnared
The crowd cheered at the six of us standing in between two corpses of half metallic beasts. We turned and waved to the crowd and they went faint. The ground began to quake as it did before. Dust fell from the buildings as they were lowered down into the ground. There seemed to be a second chamber below us where they all were going. The buildings were soon out of sight and a clear view of the vast stadium floor. We stopped waving for feelings of foolishness. I looked at my companions; Well we survived . . . now what? More surprises?
A door opened. The one we had entered through was welcoming us to come and go back to the lonely cells. Here. You take these. And you stick together. Stick together and stay alive, I handed Solo and Gig each an earpiece cell phone as we walked toward the door. We would be able to keep in contact with them once were separated again. We will get out of this. We will get home, I ensured as we entere
::The Last Epoch-"17"::It Was Dead
Do you guys hear that, Gig asked with a wide-eyed freeze. A faint, deep growl was heard through the incoherent chanting of the crowd. This had a sort of metallic twisting to it. I handed the pouch of fruit punch to Solo. He stared up at a building with a nervous shaking of his hand. With Gig looking up with the same distaste I figured there were more enemies to fight. I bent down and put on my knapsack and drew my pistols. I turned around to see something to make the strongest stomach turn on end and twirl.
The monster I killed with a shot to the head was back from the dead. It stood perched on the roof of a building staring at us with a sinister smirk. Lets get him before he does us in! Sounds good to me Dave, Axel agreed. Are you guys insane? Do you know what he could probably do with those razor talons, quaked Gig? Umhm, I saw it kill two other Prisoners. I guess you have to dispose
::The Last Epoch-"16"::Reunion
We were ecstatic with adrenaline. I picked up my gun. We descended the labyrinth of stairs and corridors to the ground floor of the stadium. What do you say we get a better look at this thing, I said as we left the building? They dont exactly seem bulletproof. But very intimidating, Axel commented as we closed the distance between the corpse and us.
Approaching it, I saw intestines and other organs pouring out through one of the many gaping wounds. A choking scent hit us like a bus nearly knocking me off my feet. As we slowly crept up on the body, it looked as if its large heart had stopped its rapid beating of a hum. The open shot wounds were becoming wider and wider as if the body-parts were just melting away. Do I see metal in that thing, I asked Axel as we grew closer to the thing? When we got close enough to see large metallic figures that once played the role of organs in the body of the creature. There were long steel bone
::The Last Epoch-"15"::Bulls Eye
Great, weve pissed `em off! he said. Lets go back! we ran back into the door we came out of. There were two windows on each side of the glass door. We both crouched below them, fearfully grasping our weapons. The light shining through the window was darkened by the shadow of the creature. It let out another metallic, inhuman, roar. Axel and I hesitantly stood up and ran to the other side of the room opposite the window. We kneeled there shooting crucial shots at the creature. Bright green blood streamed from the legs of the monster. It bent down its neck to look in the window. Two of its five eyes were peering in angrily. On its beak there were two large red bumpy growths. The bird-like creature opened its mouth. The strange red things started to glow. Suddenly, from its mouth flowed orange and red flames. We were able to jump away before we were singed.
We hid in a corner of the room where the monster couldnt see us. What do w
::The Last Epoch-"14"::Lets Go Hunting
The crowd pointed up to the top of the cavern. I witnessed huge birds gliding down from the stadium wall. They looked like the same monsters I saw flying around that island while I was in the raft. More of those guards were guiding these creatures to the stadium floor. They flew like superman next to a behemoth creature. They were huge compared to us but miniatures to the monster they guided. There were large restricting chains secured around the monsters legs and neck. Two more monster convoys were gliding down from the top of the stadium behind them.
Once the first monster got its talons on the ground it picked up one of the guard escorts and tossed him onto the other one. It gaped its huge beak, and it amplified out a terrifying screech. There were these bright red glands on its beak in front of its eyes and they illuminated a red light. From its nostrils flowed a blue flames torching the guard escorts. The other two, eagle-lizard monsters, landed killing thei
::The Last Epoch-"13"::Trapped Like Rats
I opened my eyes expecting to see a heavenly light of death. But I only saw a disgusting ceiling stained in blood and grime. I sensed rotting flesh; so quickly sitting up I take very shallow breaths. I saw Axel sitting across the room on the floor, disappointed. I looked to my right to see a doorway and on my left was an ominous, maggot-infested skeleton of some small animal. Why did you have to stab that thing? You could still have that knife now if you didnt have to be the hero, Axel said angrily. Dont worry about that now, thats the past. All we should worry about now is getting out of here and finding the others. I need some more answers. I said standing up and walking toward the doorway. Its no use. Theres an invisible energy-field keeping us in here. Axel told me. Did you notice that guy didnt bleed when I stabbed him? I said as I plucked a button from my shirt.
::The Last Epoch-"12"::Captive
Wait, what year is it? Solo asked confused. Last we believe its somewhere around 89.Destiny answered. Ya` mean 2089!? I said worried. No, 289. Whats going on here!? Destiny exclaimed. We all stared at each other in wide-eyed shock. Two-eighty-nine A.D.?! NO, 289 A.G. she replied. A.G.? After Great-war
Gig, could that wormhole have? Theoretically. No one really knows, he said in anxiety. We do now. Axel said. I looked over at Destiny worried, I dont think were who you think we are. I didnt think so. What? Well, of course you guys arent from here. You speak English and you look very alien. Youre short and dress funny. The only other ones who can speak English are of Metalstride, and you are no Angels. Destiny said. What? Angels exist here? But wait, no, w
