Radio OX-12 replayed the hidden files from the edge of the cliff buried in deep snow. Blood was right over us, our crew members either stabbed or thrown from the force of the ship were ripped in pieces, especially since one jammed the engines fans. Everything was covered; windows, side barriers, wires, suits… everything.
My last breath after from the crash was unbearable to catch under the blizzards of negative 30 degrees. I was still passed out, waking up under the barriers of glass protection around me with enough puwang to ilipat around but I couldn’t. my ears were buzzed; everything in my body; I had no control since my suit was unheating itself.
The vision of a dark figure came slowly over the glass barricade I was in. my ears changed channels as I could hear it in a blur, then slowly the wind going through the glass. Slowly I pushed myself while laying on my back to ilipat around moving my muscles. My armor is still in place.. but Sarah, one of my companions we were assigned to lead us was no longer there but blown to bits after the whole crash. The blurriness only captured the small lights of Sarah now into scraps as the mga kulay changed and dimmed itself.
I slowly reached out trying to grab all the pieces out from the snow but as soon as I could barely pull in a small yell echoed through the thin glass.
-viper..- it yelled my name softly as I could hardly see through the glass since it was covered in ice. The call of the voice echoed through my bushy ears as I tried to recover my eyesight and hearing, but as my vision started to gain sight as from recovering the silence, an afterlife banged on the tight glass I was covered as a shield from him coming in.
I shrugged back as a piece of the glass fell, cracks were spreading quickly with one of his staffs he had covering his arms and wings. Half of the sharp end he had went through the glass as I slowly looked around for anything that could help me kill it.
The pistol! I thought. I tried moving over a bit with a small hop since I was on it. The gun was bent and broken from the sides. Surprisingly the afterlife extended it’s arm through the glass as it screeched, grabbing my leg and pulling me towards it as I held the ground, his strength was too much since he was getting pieces of glass in his arm.
A loud cry was ibingiay out as the afterlife cocked it’s head with his main sticking up. It release and quickly gripped my leg as I was too late to even pull back; I tried reaching for the broken gun but it pulled me out, breaking the glass cover and throwing me from a short distance. He pulled out a small red weapon and pointed it through me but the icy wind blew stronger as he fell only shooting 3 bright rounds but missing. The gun landed through the middle between us as we both stared at the gun. I held my arm from the fall, stood up and dashed toward the weapon as he dashed rapidly than I did; he was too close to me now and the kutsilyo beside my left leg was the only plan to live so I jumped over him but as soon as I did he held my tail and forced me back down, landing on my back hard. Forcefully he landed on tuktok of me with his beak almost near my face as I held his claws to push him back. He yelled all he could with every force in his system, forcing himself even closer to me with his drool dripping and his tongue almost reaching my nose.. til I lifted him a bit madami than he could push down. I lifted my left leg under his abdomen and pushed him upward, released his claws as he Nawawala my grip leaving me scratches.
The battle kutsilyo fell off my side as I quickly recovered it and turned from my side, jumping on the afterlife holding its beak together with its red eyes staring at me and quickly stabbing its throat and stepped back, watching the creature softly screeching but couldn’t. I fell back on the cold sheets of snow while the afterlife was slowly dying with the goo squirting all around it, releasing its final call or so.
I laid back breathless, my legs lifted a bit just in case he tries to attack me or if he was faking his death. The cold breeze was almost turning out to be a storm. My suit was almost frozen.
‘I could’ve been dead..’ I thought to myself. The dark grey skies kept getting darker.
Suddenly the loud screeches slowly echoed almost as if they were around me, the one I probably killed must’ve released a call for reinforcement and they’re almost in sight. I picked myself up slowly then getting near the dead corpse, retrieving the kutsilyo in his throat.
No one was here.. not even a single bit of life pinagmulan anywhere but from the other enemies that’s in close sa pamamagitan ng so I had to quickly stretch out my suit so it could function well for me to escape or to at least hide from them, and the ship.. god know where that’s at I thought.
