NecropolisEight strangers sitting in a bar, drinking and telling stories. Martin was more than ready to meet his end like this, after twenty years of being a mercenary, it wasn't bad.He scanned the room again. Sitting by the boarded-up window was the young cop, Nick, and the mid-aged couple that had come in last. An airborne corporal and an out-of-the-job body guard swapped stories in the far corner. Andy, one of the mercs Martin had been deployed with, leaned against the wall closest to the front door, his assault rifle pointed at the doorknob. Christie, the brunette ex-special forces bomb-shell that had brought him and Andy to this bar, stood behind the bar holding a bottle of Jack Daniels'. She flashed him a smile that made him forget the horrors outside. "Another round, Marty?""Naw, I'm the designated driver tonight." They both laughed lightly, it was all the could do to keep their sanity. He turned his back on the bar again, reality setting in.The cop was covered in blood splatter, the c
Bloodlines: The BeginningHanako wiped blood from her face and kneeled by the dying boy on the futon at her feet. Adrenaline and fear clouded her thoughts and memory. She remembered the demon, how sure she thought she was going to die. And then this dark haired boy saving her when she was paralyzed with fear.He had traded his soul and life for hers, and she didn't even know him.

She sat back as the boy sat up. He looked around casually. "Where am I?"Hanako looked down timidly. "
BattleFields pt 2" John, I just want to make sure this is a good idea, some of these men have been dead a thousand years!"John turne and starred at his partner through thick square glasses. "Bill, i know what your afraid of, but these men are the only Humans that the government will let us clone, with out them we're all dead."Bill pushed his brown hair away from his eyes. "I know, ever since we lost Neros it's been hell, but these men, they've been gone too long, It'll drive them mad!""So what do you want to do?""I don't know," Bill sighed. "How about cloning the soldiers of this war? It may break every federal law on Earth, but it will be safer!"John sighed, it was the idea he had pushed for the same idea to be approved since the first few colony worlds had fallen."Bill, What i'm about to tell you is top secret, we both could be stood against the wall and shot."Bill swallowed, there was something cold in john, the years of serving the military had frozen his heart, he was dangerous. He n
Battlefields It was sometime in 1942, i had stoped looking at calenders. We had landed on a Jap island given the task of destroying fuel, weapons, ammo and food supplies to prepar for an invasion. The 5307th Rangers did their job, but coming back was another story... "Everyone on the boats!"The rescue boats weren't much, now way they could stand up against the rifles and submachine guns the japanese were useing. PFC. Razak knew this was bad. A company of Ranger against and islandfull of japs. He stood and fired the last few rounds in his Thompson towards the thick foliage the jap rifle rounds were comming from and turned."Move it! on to the rafts now!"Bill Scotty starred at at him with a look of mixed terror and his usually happy demeanor at war with eachother." Raz, get down!"Razak hit the dirt hard as Scotty let loose a burst of auto fire on a jap officer who had run out of the jungle with a sword."Now i owe you three scotty!"The other man just nodded and ran towards the boat.
