Six Sentence Sunday #33 – Revenant (Part 13)

It’s Sunday and that means its time for Six Sentences. We’re up to Part 13 of Revenant, it could be argued that fighting zombies in zero gravity on a derelict ship in the middle of nowehere is unlucky enough so what will the inauspicious number 13 mean for Ryan? See below to find out 😉

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…

    The husk that started above him now floated closer, its distended mouth opened wide. Ryan stepped forward and grabbed the creature’s outstretched arms, swinging it around to collide with the three below. They crashed together in a tangle of flailing limbs, all of them silently mouthing their rage as he passed by overhead. But they recovered quickly, and seconds later they were flying at him, an expression of primal hunger on their faces.
    Ryan released the magnet locks again, and kicked off the ceiling, twisting as he dived for the gun. He came up firing; gobs of superheated plasma spewed forth to punch holes through their unprotected bodies.

    1. Thanks Ryan. WIth the six sentence format this combat has been running for three weeks. I found it challenging to balance the pacing so that it held people’s interest. Don’t want it over too quickly but don’t want to drag it out and bore readers as well. I am pretty happy with how its has turned out.

  1. Fabulous! Though I’m asking myself what the penetrative power of the plasma bolts is. Explosive decompression is one way of getting rid of zombies but it couldn’t do Ryan any good.

    1. That is an excellent question. Based on my reading, organic material such as cloth, or flesh is vulnerable to plasma, while metals and many ceramics are resistant to it. Making it ideal for use within a pressurised environment when one wants to minimize structural damage. A professional like Ryan would ensure he brings the right tool for the job. 🙂

  2. Great action six, Goran. I agree with Elin, though. He’s not trying to recover the ship to use it, is he? Damage to the hull would suck. I’m really enjoying your tale. 🙂
