A new entry for The Recruiting Matter – Millicent is about be shot at by a drone. She is rescued and focuses on getting to the porch. However, someone has come out onto the front porch.
This is a short entry. More tomorrow. Expect a long entry.
Millicent – in front of Smith’s house
The drone hovered a moment and then a beam shot out hitting Millicent in the leg and burned. She dodged to the side. Her leg felt like a hot poker had lashed her. She looked up and the drone was lining up again. She tried to jig to the right. As she jumped, a second drone marked in green came in from her right blazing its own beam on her tormentor.
She said, “Thanks, Charles”
Charles replied, “Someone came into the basement just as the drill got through. Take the porch.”
She pulled out a strange pistol like device from a pocket and aimed it at the man in the doorway. The beam hit him on the left shoulder. He grabbed his shoulder and aimed his own pistol in her direction but the beam went wide. Two red drones shifted their attack and clustered around the man and combining their fire at Millicent. Two of Charles drones concentrated their fire on one of the red drones. The red marked drone seemed to glow as it absorbed the beam. Millicent fired her own beam at the drone. She moved herself behind a brick wall for cover and checked her weapon. It was at 1/3 charge. She couldn’t take the porch with that.
For those who are new to the recruiting matter, The Recruiting Matter Home Page is a good place to learn and start the story.
