Unit 700 stooped down and picked up something off the ground. “Hey guys what is this tiny little species here.” He asked, as he held out his hand.

Unit 42 came over taking a closer look. “That is what humans call a cockroach, or what we call Unit 27’s mother.” He let out a series of short laughs Unit 27, and Unit 201 laughed with him. No one else had any idea what he was talking about.

Unit 700 examined it again. “It appears to be the only thing that survived the final purge.” He squashed it between his thumb and finger, “I thought it would have been tougher than that, being able to withstand the blast and all.”

Unit 27 spun around getting face to face with Unit 201. “I don’t plan on going back without him.” He looked over at Sara, who was being led by Unit 53, “and, I don’t plan on Captain getting this female, she is my slave.”

“Oh, Dad, you’re always trying to ruin my fun.” He pressed a couple more buttons before jumping down. His feet hit the ground just as the door popped open. “Well, look at that, my playing around opened it.” Daniel said with a laugh, as he glanced over at his dad.

The last couple of shots almost hit Ralph again, if he would not have been hunched down the last one would have been a direct head shot. It was his turn now. He estimated the aliens being anywhere from one-hundred yards to two- hundred yards away, and gaining. One being shorter than the other, Ralph chose the taller one to be the first target. The distance was farther than he liked, hoping that with the modifications Jeremy had told them about, and the Infinity Ore ammo he could actually pull this off. Pulling the trigger, he allowed five rounds to fire before releasing. As soon as he had fired, he quickly realigned firing at the shorter one with another five round burst.

“On our way.” Herald clipped the radio onto his belt. “Alright folks, looks like it’s time to move out. Tony, I want you and your family at the front of the line. Joshua, Cindy, and Travis you all are up front too. The rest of you that are armed will keep up the back of the line. Your only job is to protect everyone in the middle and of course yourselves. Any questions?”

Unit 27 lead Swarm 5, Captain gave him one order, that was to hunt down Unit 53. If he was found alive they were to contact the Captain immediately. Swarm 5 consisted of Units 27, 42, 315, 201, 449, and 700 all handpicked by the Captain himself. Unit 27 wanted to be on a harvest Swarm, hunting down one of their own was somewhat degrading.

Grant had been keeping up alot better than she thought he would, but then again he did look to be in pretty good shape. Carol had been thinking that he might be some sort of athlete—something she was going to have to ask him about if they survived.

“I would have to say, as long as our seat belts hold up, we would survive with minimal damage.” Todd replied, “I have built this thing to be almost indestructible. Every part that could be, was made from Infinity Ore. The only damage we might take would be the gunner stations being ripped off the top. If that were to happen, the gunner stations alone should also survive the fall with minimal damage.” Todd looked over at Leroy with a grin on his face, “at least that’s what I figure would happen, I obviously have never tested it.”

“Why kill it?” Todd asked cutting Dr. Rice short, “We have never found a live one, and I for one would love to talk to it. See if we can find out what they are taking humans for.”

Patricia was disgusted by his response, even though he was probably right. “Hey, now there is no need for that kind of attitude.” She took a deep breathe slowly releasing it, “The truth is, Alicia, there is a good chance you will not be home for Christmas, I’m sorry about that.” She could see the sadness form in her face instantly. “But I will see what I can do to make sure you get lots of gifts.”
