Mr President - Part 14

"stand either side of the doorway" Lucky whispered loudly as the footsteps thuded closer. Navas and Ed followed orders and pressed themselves as flat as possible.
Lucky moved to the back of the airlock and waited.

Sentinel 385-323-002 scanned the corridor. The Mercsteel was nigh on impossible to penetrate with a scanner but there was a definate reading coming from inside the airlock. It wasnt the human he had chased earlier, this was somthing else. Pausing momentarily the bipedal chromed machine analyzed the data.

Subject: Amorphian
Subjects Tactics: Unorthadox
Solution: Use all necessary force

The upper right hand side of the Sentinel parted in a hissing cloud of gas. A bulky cylinder emerged. It swung effortlessly to a horizontal position, then, with a telescopic type movement, it extended forward approximately one metre. A rack of missile type ammunition emerged from the top of the sentinels shoulder, clamped itself into place and a round was chambered. Sentinel 385-323-002 continued its pursuit.

The robot appeared in the doorway. Lucky blinked just to make sure he wasnt hallucinating the three inch launcher barrel that was pointing at him, then melted to the floor.

Sentinel 385-323-002 targetted the amorphian, just as he was about to fire the amorphian disappeared. His scanners indicated it was now on the floor. He moved forward as the launcher barrel dropped and his targetting system recalibrated.

"get out and lock the door" Lucky yelled as he surged upwards enveloping the sentinel.

Navas and Ed raced through the door, Ed punched the door lock. They saw Lucky spreading over the chrome body as the door began to close. An almighty explosion tore through the floor. A huge hole appeared and Lucky and the Sentinel disappeared into space. Navas screamed, the sound sucked away from her so that Ed barely heard it. The vacuum from outside dragged them towards the torn metal. They pulled away from it, nails tearing on the metal walls, but were slowly moving nearer. The door closed, the vacuum stopped, Navas and Ed hit the floor and lay there panting.

.....................................................................................

Within hours of the 'Presidents' order, ships began to descend on the planet Ssakan. The snakelike troops piled aboard as they landed and teams of Hawas dragged tons of supplies on to them.
Ssarkas and his bodyguards boarded the largest of the destroyers. The time was finally upon them. Ssarkas gestured to his pilot and then retired to his rooms as the first of the invasion fleet took off and headed into space.

.....................................................................................

The noise on the deck of The Double Cross was deafening. three seperate alarms were sounding. Ed stared at the console pressing the flashing buttons and cursing under his breath. Navas sat on the floor her knees tucked under her chin, she was crying freely and Ed had given up trying to get any sense out of her. The only words she would say were 'He never knew i loved him'. Ed didnt really want to speculate on that and not being particularly in touch with his own feelings had no desire to discover any more about Navas'.
Eds random button pushing seemed to be having an affect. The sirens stopped one by one and Ed sank back into his chair a satisfied smile on his face. The bridge settled into a silence broken only by the soft sobs emanating from Navas.
Ed scanned the instrument panel 'how do you make this thing move?' he wondered to himself. Then he saw it. At first glance it was just like all the other buttons. A metallic grey, set flush into the control panel. But this one was different. Vastly different. this one held all Eds dreams of the past few days encapsulated in the tiny laser etched word under the button. It simply said HOME.
In a dreamlike trance, lost in thoughts of real beer, greasy kebabs, the well formed breasts of a dark haired receptionist, he pressed the button.

Keeefer- Less fiber and more typing.

I am happy to see Chapter 14 spring up so fast. You are working a a great rough draft of what will someday become an even better book.

I think you are in the most difficult part of the process now...just trying to get all those ideas down on a paper. We are Lucky to be in on the ground floor (tee hee, pun unintended)
