Gaunts survival instincts had obviously not desapated despite being drugged and restrained for such a long time, he had stopped moving, Humans, moving throughout the complex.
He could see them, some were in big groups, others in what looked like pairs, 'great...' he thought to himself, 'company already'.
As he lay in the vent his head turned, he could hear running, one Human alone?. Gaunt checked the area, the Human was definatly alone.
He started to slowly move closer, the Human stopped running, Gaunt paused for a moment, the Human seemed confused, he was holding something, what?.
Gaunt started to move closer, the Human moved, Gaunt stopped, the Human was looking almost directly at him, 'There you are you little fucker!'. The Human reached behind his back and pulled out his rifle.
'Shit, they have motion trackers', the Human opened fire on Gaunts position, Gaunt sped down the vent avoiding the gun fire that narrowly missed him and destroyed the area behind him, he zoned down to the area of vent above the Humans head.
The Human was still firing and shouting, 'DIE YOU LITTLE FUCKER!, his rifle was blazing away but he obviously had no idea where Gaunt was. Gaunt looked down, he slashed through the venting directly below and fell right on top of the Man.
He screamed 'FUCK!', Gaunt quickly sqwirmed down the Mans back inbetween his armour and his body. The man had dropped his gun now, he was panicing, spinning, trying to grab the overgrown chestburster that was pressed right behind him.
The Man screamed as a sudden and terrific pain shot through him, 'AHHHHHGGHHH!!!', he fell, Gaunt had slashed through his spine, Gaunt opened his inner jaw and repeatedly struck the man in the back, tearing out random chunks of red, bloody flesh.
The man had lost his ability to speak, his left eye was closed, all feeling in his body was gone, Gaunt sqwirmed up out of the mans armour, blood covering his face, he slithered over the mans body, straight to his head, he looked into the terror filled eye of the man, 'slash, riPPP!, GlugGggglug'.
Gaunt now turned, he started to move to the wall on his left, there was a small service vent, about twenty metres away behind him, as he moved to the side he watched down the corridor in front of him, there was another Human coming, frantically shouting a name into a radio, and the radio that was blarring his calls was in the front pocket of the now dead Man.
