(Yep. They're that smart XD)
Kyra loosed another burst, followed by a third. The screams of pain were audible, and she switched to auto. A sustained burst, and the screams went abruptly silent as she clicked back to burst fire. "That's two more here." She reported, sweeping her field of vision with the SMG muzzle. "Afraid I missed the killing spots on 'em, though. Stand by, more might be attracted to the noise."

Cindy was suddenly very confused.  There were too many 'theys' and not enough names or answers.  She gave Caleb a strange look then stared at the screen waiting for something she could report that made sense to her.  She didn't have exact numbers, only blobs that could be more than one or not.  She just wasn't sure, that they were coming toward her friends she knew and had reported.  For now, she felt it was best to remain quiet until she knew exactly what to say.

Meredith's eyes widened at the news, and she scrambled out of the bed and passed Ronnie, bursting out into the command room Caleb and Cindy occupied.  She skittered up to the consoles that they watched, her gaze flipping here and there.  There were dots and colors and images and things she didn't understand.  "Which are they?  Which one is him?"

Cindy stiffened a bit when Meredith came busting into the room and started grilling her. "Where is who?" she asked the upset teenager. "Here I show you how to read the screens." Cindy showed her where everyone was and told her about the dinosaurs and zombie images. "There is a tv out there for me to see real pictures, but is is blocked and no one can stop fighting dinasaurs to clear it. Can you clear it Meredith?" she asked her, "without going outside I mean" she specified.

[smg id=689 width=120]Gunny & Nomiko

Gunny listened to the chatter and cursed under his breath.  "Comm discipline people," he directed.  "Command, Gunny, designate us team one, we're stationary.  We have three down to the south," he squeezed the trigger.  "Correction, four down, we have movement, unknown numbers, command can you advise on numbers?"


[smg id=739 width=120 type=full]Billy Ray & Ski

Ski took the slap for what it was meant to be.  "Command, Ski, designate us team two, we're moving north, one is stalking us for sure, I fired on it but do not know if I hit, please advise if you see movement."

[smg id=756 width=120 type=full]

[smg id=756 width=120 type=full]Ronnie & Meredith

"That's better," Ronnie said, taking over Caleb's station.  "They're organized again, you can't go wild and wooly at a time like this."  She looked at Meredith, calm yourself, we can't get tweaked at a time like this."


[smg id=741 height=120]Cindy & Caleb & Bobo

Caleb was looking over Cindy's shoulder with Meredith, relieved that Ronnie was watching the air defense screens and activity to the north of the mountains.

Cindy calmed down after Meredith's outburst and the multiple wes and theys stopped bombarding the young girl. "Team one" she said, "there are too many coming at you to get a good count. Nothing is sneaking up though" she added. "Team two, "you have two approaching your posisition. You are also the closest to the tv that will let me see live action. When you get rid of the two, try to uncover the tv thing."

She calmed a bit once she knew who was where and what was around them, but she was still agitated by the rippers.  "Is there a way outside?" she asked no one in particular, still watching the screens.  "Like, an access hatch, or a watch tower or something?"

Kyra's voice carried a dry humor as she corrected Gunny. "Actually, I think we're at six down.." Another burst from her MP5 "...seven." She corrected herself. "Reloading." She thumbed the magazine release, dropping the inserted clip. Using her right hand, she patted across her body until she fond the right pouch, and grabbed a fresh magazine. Slipping it free of the pouch, she slipped it inside the weapon. Just as she was about to chamber the first round, however...well, one of the damn things came bolting at her. Reacting more on instinct than anything, her right hand grabbed the handle of her sidearm, whipped it up, and pulled the trigger. there was no time to aim, and by the time the .45's sharp report sounded, it was close enough not to need aiming. The chest blew out, she holstered the pistol, slapped the action, and stood by again. "That makes Eight."

"Command, team one, they should all be down in my area.  Confirm?"


[smg id=739 width=120 type=full]Billy Ray & Ski

"Oh sure, you get all the dumb ones," Ski called, then triggered a burst of grenade rounds that shredded one.  "Nine down."

Then his world went upside down and sideways as the last of them pounced in front of the snowmobile.  Metal and fiberglass bent, buckled and shredded and men flew.  Billy Ray groaned as he clawed his pistol out, he rolled and saw the mouth of the ripper wide open on the ground beside him and he emptied a clip into its mouth.  "Ten down, team two is out of action, we hit the last one and wiped out.  No status on Ski, I am a mess."

[smg id=756 width=120 type=full]

[smg id=756 width=120 type=full]Ronnie & Meredith

"Sunuvabitch!," Ronnie said, "Caleb, you're back on this station."  She turned to Meredith.  "I'm going out, can you handle suiting up and coming with me?"


[smg id=741 height=120]Cindy & Caleb & Bobo

Nothing else moved on the screen.  Caleb stepped back over and studied the screen and waited for status reports.  "You'd better tell Gunny another team is going out."

Cindy flipped all the switches again, "all teams be advised that another team is coming out. We shall call it team three" she said proudly, as if she thought of it herself. "All tvs have no movments" she gave a little sigh then flipped the switches again. Another flip brought her team one. "Be advised that team two has had an accident and Ski is missing. Keep your eyes open." another flip, "team two, stay put and turn on your alert signal for team three." She took a deep breath and flipped another switch, one she hadn't used yet. "Team three, team two should have emergency alerts on, one member still missing" she said the last to Ronnie, though if Meredith went out with Ronnie she would also be able to hear. Cindy looked at Caleb, "this is getting hard" she said tiredly. "I didn't know it would take so long" she said sighing again. Cindy had spent the past few days quite ill, and hadn't really fully recovered. Nor had she eaten much that day. Now that she was having to stay so focused and seditary she was quickly tiring.

Meredith followed Ronnie out of the command room, and into the gear that was thrown at her.  She had intended to just sweep the area from their bunker.  But if Ski was in trouble, then she could help him.  Besides, if there were rippers still about, she owed them a favor or two...
