Edgar started to feel how the weight of the creature over him was breaking his clavicles and scapulas, the pain making him scream. However, the marine was decided not to lose. As the Predalien keeps trying to fracturate his shoulders, the soldier, with an eye closed, shouts. "I AM NOT GOING TO LET YOU WIN, MONSTER!"
Thereupon, the human bended his legs, putting them on the chest of the Xenomorph, trying to pull it off his body. As he keeps pushing Badapple again, he manages to relieve some of the pressure the creature was appling, giving him space to move his arms, however, he is not able to take the beast off him, only able to lift it up a little.
Edgar frantically tried to grab his knife, which had fell off his belt when Badapple had pinned him down, landing close to him. As he tries to pick up the knife, he touches another pipe, which was near the floor, instantly burning his fingers. Moving his hand away, the human has an idea. He reaches again for his knife, and as soon as he grabs it, he stabs the pipe with the hot steam, which scalds his hand.
The boiling vapor also burned the Predalien, which backed away from the redhead. Without any time to lose, Edgar kicked the face of the Xeno, and stood up, running blindly into the darkness as fast as he could from the reach of the monster, and the gas, succesfully escaping from it's claws. He had not been left unscathed, however, as his body had been badly burned from the steam, and he couldn't use his right arm.
Clenching his teeth from the pain, the private took his sidearm, the last weapon that he had with him, and pointed at the Predalien. "Goodbye..." He pulled the trigger, the bullet hitting the head of the monster, followed by a fiery explosion which engulfed the Xenomorph in fire. The marine then jumped to the side, covering himself as best as he could from the fireball.
