Last week ended on a cliffhanger so I won’t mince words introducing this one.
As always, this scene picks up immediately following last week’s six sentences, so if you want to catch up or need a recap then just follow this link.
Onto the story…
The magnetic locks in his boots held him in position while the mindless creature pounded him with its fists; each punch felt like a hammer blow. The restart process engaged seconds later, but it seemed like an eternity before Ryan was able to lower his arms.
He released the boot locks with a thought, and pushed back hard against the console. With no gravity to hold him down, he flew across the room, evading the second husk as it bore down on him.
He slammed into the far wall, the bulk of his armour crushed the husk grappling him, it’s bones shattered by the force. The broken mass of flesh stopped moving, but four husks now stood between him and the rifle which still floated beside the console.
