*Daveberg needed to make this as quick as possible. His battered body rebounded off the pred as topdogg tackled the alpha alien to the floor.
K20's battle with the alpha alien had taken its toll, shadowblades gift of a plasma blast to the back had been the deciding blow which had hindered the aliens commander, Topdogg was looking to finish the ordeal, he knew he had daveberg at a disadvantage.
Writhing on the floor, the ebony beast defied the odds of his survival, excessive wounds covered his body from head to toe, he was a marked hunt, by more than just a few hunters.
Topdogg approached with little caution. A gutteral clicking noise emitted from behind his face mask as he looked down at the alien. It seemed to be a done deal. The predator drew his sacraficial blade and looked at it briefly, run one large scaled finger across it then knelt down, placing the blade over the alpha aliens skull. It was time.
But not for topdogg. The predator was caught completely un aware, the huge alien reared up, suddernly full of life and with a chilling crunching sound, impaled his armoured tail straight through topdoggs ribs from behind.
The predator convulsed at the shock of the pain, daveberg had returned the favour, a rib for a rib so to speak. Sickening popping noises were heard as the alien pushed harder through tendons and tissue, blood gushing from the great wound. Suprisingly, with great strength, the alpha alien lifted the predator off of him, snarling at the masked hunter. SNAP!!! Daveberg ripped his tail from out of the hunter, but not from the back, the alpha alien had tore his tail through the side of the hunter, ripping out his shards of the hunters ribs in the process.
Topdogg hit the floor, hard. What was left of the royal chamber was covered in phosperous green puddles of blood. The hunter was badly hurt. Clasping his side, topdogg roared out in agony, and then anxiety when he saw what was approaching. Daveberg was now on his feet once more, standing tall, teeth glinting from the invading sunlight of ZX2. The alpha alien beared over the fallen hunter, drool oozing over topdoggs armour. The xenomorph lifted it's tail again, this was going to be the deciding attack. A flicker of shimmering silver. Then the sound of corrosive liquid burning into the floors, and then, a high pitched alien scream. Daveberg stumbled back in pain as he swung his severd appendage in the air. Topdogg had just managed to bring up his sacrificial dagger in time to slice through the xenomorphs tail.
Time to turn the tables. The hunter, still holding his ribs, attemted to get up, but it was not to be. The alpha alien was in a primal fury, the beast sprang back onto the predator and forced him to the ground, not wasting time, daveberg retracted his slime ridden lips and opened his jaws, death beckoned. But not for topdogg.
The sound of two high calibre plasma casters firing, echoed through the chamber, a burst of vivid blue light iluminated the ruins of the queens chamber and then found their target. There was little remains. The combined force of the two plasma casters had disintigrated the target.
Standing over from Topdogg was his close friend, Deathdrop, next to him, more suprisingly, was K20, the elder of Balatu clan. Both shrouded in smoke from their freshly fired casters.
K20 had helped Deathdrop fight off the pack of flesh hungry drones, and now they stood together, stood over the remains of the mightiest beast they all hoped to take as a trophy. There was only partial parts left. Daveberg was slain. The alpha alien, vaporised.
The HIVE now had it's back to the wall, there were not many left.....*www.thorndesigns.netdarkness of acheron
