Hycn: Encounter On The Dead Planet

828 words - 4 pages

Just several miles to the east, Xerla was still preaching to Kocz about religion when two blinking red dots appeared out of nowhere on her radar screens. Two mysterious crafts were approaching fast. If the crafts belonged to the Ekcyrien army, they could have displayed as green dots on the screen. But they didn’t, which made Xerla sure that it wasn’t safe to hang around. They had to get away fast.

“Kocz - we got company, and they are coming our way very fast.” Xerla called out to her partner.

“Punch it man! Let’s go!” Xerla roared back, then dived her craft skywards to the south, and blasted off. Kocz followed her. The newly arrived unidentified ships hesitated for a moment but quickly gave chase.

“Kocz, we have no other alternative but to engage them. I assumed they‘ll be happy we are running away but they are chasing us now.” Xerla shouted.

She veered her ship to the right, and then spun it around. Her fingers at the ready on triggers. In situations like this her fingers were always ready on the trigger. That’s why she’d been involved in many battles, both on air and on ground, and survived. She had very good survival instincts and one simple rule she lived by on the field of battle. Eliminate thy enemy before they eliminate thee.

One of the unidentified ships was directly in her line of fire. She pressed....
