::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
::The Last Epoch-"11"::Destiny
The next thing I know, I open my eyes feeling a prick of a needle being extracted from under my skin. I spasmodically sat up and hit my head on the nurse. She was leaning over my bed, taking out the needle. I lay back down in pain. After everything stops spinning, I sit back up and the nurse is leaving the room rubbing her forehead.
Sorry! Wait! Where am? I stop calling to the nurse because I notice all my things are gone. All I have on are my boxers. My belongings are gone. What the hell!? I whispered to my self in anguish. I stood up and fell flat on my back. I must still be a little dizzy, I said sitting up rubbing my head. I stood up determined to get some answers. I ran out of my room in my underwear through the wall illusion and into the main room. Where am I! Where is everyone else! What are these, walking blenders!? I yelled running across the main room up to an android. Whats with all the white!? Could
::The Last Epoch-"10"::Column City of Light
As we dropped at an incredible speed, I witnessed the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. We entered the light and saw an unbelievably large underground cavern. Wow, all six of us said in unison and in shock. But the Cavern had a most peculiar feature that gathered most our vision. In the center of the cavern stood an unimaginably tall natural stone column that glowed with the all the lights of a city. The elevator was close enough to see what it was. An entire city built on the spiral shelves that twisted around and inside the hollow body of the rock. This magnificent structure seemed to have a column of light engulfing the core of its magnitude. This foreign beautiful world seemed to have a suspicious unknown.
Our destination was not to be the column itself but to be the outskirts of the city that seem to run off onto the floor of the cavern. Off to the left there seemed to be stream of white light coming from a deep of the cavern floor. This
::The Last Epoch-"9"::Sunrise Hostiles
I was awakened up by Gig tapping on my face. Rise and shine, Commander, he said. Where are we? Where is everyone? Did we find help? I panicked as I sat up. We were washed up into a cove and have set up camp here. The guys went out for firewood with Adrianne. Doc and myself are making dinner. Have we tried the satellite phones? Yeah theres nothing but static. Damn it, where are we!? I asked confused. The guys should be back any minute, Gig said.
Entering the cave at nightfall, Axel exclaimed frustrated. Nothing, there is no wood left on this wretched island! Yeah, just dirt and this dry, dead grass. This should kindle a fire to cook our dinner, but itll never last through the night. Adrianne said carrying a brown heap of grass.
We put all of the grass we could find into a pretty impressive fire where we cooked a can of beans and corn. It was del
::The Last Epoch-"8"::Hope
We had been floating on the ocean for what I think had been three days and we had lost all signs of hope. We have survived off of the rations we brought in out survival packs. Nearly all electronics were ineffective including satellite phones and G.P.S.
Look, an island! Solo hollered hoarsely. We had finally found salvation! Everyone fatigued by the sun, which seemed to burn with the intensity of hell. Everyone get some rest, well need it when we arrive, I said. It wasnt your fault man. He decided to stay. You will be a great leader. Assured Axel.
We were at least a day from arriving at the island. It looked as if it was just a mountaintop emerging from the ocean.
As everyone fell asleep, I drifted between sleep and consciousness. I was overcome by exhaustion. Rudely awakened by a rubbing on the raft behind my head, I peer over to see my own reflection. My dark eyes and unshaven face seemed to be dirty and dull with sleepiness
