Stories > [WPC] Chronicles : Episode twelve : Behind closed doors

There had been no radio contact in the last 30 minutes. Buzz had led his team all the way up
to the top floor of the building as Webley had instructed. The team kept cracking jokes, but
everybody felt the tension in the air. With him were Hammer, Woody and Alpha. It was always
wise to join those last two, as Woody was the only one capable of following Alpha's thick accent.
They walked down another set of stairs, no sign of life so far.

"Whats behind door number 5?!"
"That joke got old at door number 3 Woody," Hammer replied.
"Hurrg fri kneu blllt!"
Woody and Alpha doubled over laughing.
"What did he say?! No fair man!"
Buzz tried to block out their bickering to concentrate on the doorpanel.
"Shut your yapping and help me get this door open. It's different from the others, I'll have to
bypass the security lock."
He hooked up his gear an started working on it, after a couple of minutes he finally got it.
"Stay in formation, I have a feeling this lock has a good reason."
The room was dark. They turned on their lights and stepped in.

It was remarkably warmer inside, within seconds Buzz felt pearls of sweat form under his
helmet. Adjusting their eyes to the dark, they kept their places for a moment. The sound of
Alpha's motiontracker startled them all, and Hammer gave a small shriek. All of a sudden things
happened fast, something moved to the left of them. Woody caught a glimps of a swirling tail
with his light, and he opened fire. The creature made an awfull sound but kept coming at him. Woody
saw it clearly now, glistening in the dark. He fired again, aiming at the head. This time it was a hit,
the head exploded and a yellow substance burst across the room.

Instantly, Woody gave out a cry of horror. He grabbed his face in agony.
"It burns!!!" Franticly he tried wiping it off with his sleeve.
Buzz turned to his right. There was Hammer, her eyes fixed on Woody. Unaware of what was
happening behind her. He raised his gun and fired, following Woody's lead he aimed for the head.
Hammer dropped down into a crouch. The creature went down and more yellow substance spilled
across the room. Some landed on Hammers backpack. Desperatly she began removing it from her
back, the smell of burnt cloth surrounded her. Finally she got out of it and jumped up.

They stood there quiet for a while, scanning the room. Ready for another attack by one of
the Xeno's. Nothing happened, but Alpha's motion tracker ket giving a steady beep. Woody's
face was burnt, but luckily it had not damaged his eyes. Hammer had gotten out of her backpack
in time, it lay smoldering on the floor.
"Where's the signal coming from Alpha?" Buzz talked in a whisper, but the deep timbre of his voice
was clear to them all. Alpha pointed to the right of them.
"We have to check it out guys. Try to stay cool and keep your eyes open."
Buzz walked up front. The room was covered wall to wall in weird organic material. This
did not look man made. Alpha signaled: Up ahead, 10 signals. They crept foreward, lights
swaying across the strange room. Something came in sight. There they were, suspended from the
wall. Buzz lowered his pulse rifle. "I think we found the missing crew."

 Re: [WPC] Chronicles : Episode twelve : Behind closed doors
I like it though the story seems to be similar to movie. Bunch of marines were sent to an unknown planet (which is not really unknown), they didin't know what awaits them... And now it's gonna hunt them. And there's even a place for mad sciencist! Classic! Now we only need guy who want to earn money by selling Xeno's (or their parts, or..., or...). But it's still interesting and I want more! :he: Keep writting 'cause I might not be able to stand waiting...

No "technical" suggestions.
