Six Sentence Sunday #32 – Revenant (Part 12)

It seems like I now have a date by which this story needs to wrap up. With Six Sunday coming to an end on the 27 of January 2013, that leaves me with about 32 weeks and 192 sentences to bring this whole thing to some kind of conclusion. I know it may seem like a long way off now, but it’s something to keep in mind or it will sneak up on me.

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.

And now, onto the story…

    He pushed himself up and engaged the magnets again when he neared the roof of the engineering section. Concepts of up and down meant nothing in zero-g, and he needed every advantage to overcome this threat. Without a rifle, he had only the monofilament to defend himself, but such a blade could be as deadly to him as it was against his foes.
    With slow, deliberate, steps he walked along the ceiling, each lumbering stride bringing him closer to his weapon. It was a massive gamble. Husks might be incapable of understanding, but it would only be a matter of time before they thought to jump.

  1. You can’t cut off the Sunday Zombies in Space sunday serial. That is just not fair. Great as always, Goran. There’s something rather cool about the word ‘lumbering’.

    1. hehehe… 32 weeks is a long time, who knows what might happen between now and the end of January 2013… if the Mayan’s were right then it’ll all be academic anyway 😉 Thanks for your continued enthusiasm.

  2. So, the blade could be deadly to him too? Good lord!! You’re making me nervous for him walking on the ceiling! Nice tension as always.

    1. That’s right, it’s only one molecule thick and will cut through anything, even his armour. If that happens before life support is turned on he’ll die of explosive decompression. Life in the vacuum of space is no picnic 😉

  3. Goddamn, I love that he’s on the ceiling! Brilliant use of setting, Goran. And I agree with Ryan, no reason to stop the serial in January. I, for one, will keep looking forward to this story.

  4. Oh, man, let’s hope for continued stupidity. Great six, Goran. You can always continue your serial on Sundays or any other day, and you could expand it from six sentences or keep it going like this without the official restrictions. It’s a good story regardless. 🙂
