*the cold air of the airvent blew against his wound, the side of his head cracked open from bladewings near fatal plasma blast, but no, it was not to be, the king of the aliens was not to fall that early, the alpha alien lived and he waited, silently in the cold airways above the 7th floor. from this vantage point he could see who was coming for him, he knew it was finally time to battle with this hunter who had been out to claim his life for so long, shadowblade was on the seventh floor searching for daveberg and now, the alpha alien had decided to present himself....
the 7th floor was dimmly lit with the early sunshine of the dawn, the light reflecting off the shiney armour of the mighty hunter shadowblade, he walked across the offices without his faceplete, quietly growling, searching for his sacred trophy, the black monster watched his every move from above, waited, waited, now was the time!
shadowblade walked directly under the airvents when a crunching of metal echoed around the entire floor as the alpha aliens barbed tail split through the airvent and tore down into shadowblades shoulder forcing the hunter down to one knee, he roared out in pain and looked above as daveberg split open the shaft and presented himself, teeth bared acid dripping from his head wound - in a flash, the massive alien swooped down at shadowblade, swiping at him with his claws but quickly the predator rolled out of the way, still clutching his torn shoulder.
shadowblade raised to his feet as did daveberg, they both exchanged cold stares as the leader of the HIVE hisses violently at his growling opponent.
