my first story!This story takes place around the edge of the Adriadne Arm where the infestation is.
A dropship arrives and you get off the docking bay along with several other marines.
You are sent onto a mining facility on top of a large asteroid to help out with a little problem in there. The workers reported having parasitic burns from an unknown cause. The burns would hurt for a few minutes and then fade away. Many workers think thats theres something in the water thats causing the burns or its probaly the food. You try and become familiar with your surroundings by walking around.
you make your way to the control room to see two workers fussing around with equipment and a monitor.
you take a a look at the LCD monitor. two marines are guarding a large drill and 10 workers. There is also a scientist there, He is bald, with gray hair, somewhat fat and a scar on his eye. He seems very excited on whats on the opposite side of the cold, brown rock.
"Alright, only two more feet to go" says a short and stocky worker with a red jumpsuit.
Your thinking " whats so valuable in here? and whats that smell.."
you have to go back and and put ur stuff into ur bunk. along the way you encounter a marine holding some heavy boxes full of equipment. He Says" hey, buddy, you forgot your armor, your pistol oh and the crappy grenade.l" he hands you the T.S.A nano armor and the standard pistol. only 10 shots but very accurate and deadly. " oh and hold this LMG? " " i gotta tie these boots" bends down to tie his laces and moves on with his box "
you yell " hey wait you forgot the LMG" but hes too far away and thinking you'll return it to him later..
Nearing your bunk,you see a group of workers in dissapointment and angry over a couple monitors filled with static. a worker says " damn it, the cameras must be outta batteries already" gets up and walks to the storage room. you look at the black and white monitor to see a the drill breaking making a neat round hole and pops these little dog like creatures running out and swarming over the marines. THe workers stared in awe as each one of them were ripped apart. One worker made a run toward the elevator shaft only to be shot with something from behind and was taken down by 3 dog things. Now you recognize the marine before holding the box. He gets off the Elevator and sees a row of teeth and and mutilated bodies. he dropped his box and primes his grenade. the screen goes back into static.
You hear a loud explosion in the direction where the Marine was going. a long metallic groan and you know the area has being sealed off with dirt and boulders.
You don't even have a fraction of a second to think, as you hear a snarl behind you..
