"O'Kias move into the upper floor, the we are almost at breaking point, and we need to retreat to a vantage point, and we need covering fire as we get into the building, come on hurry up!" shouted Shas'ui O'Shai as he fired precise from his window view, cutting down another three of the people that were once their own.
O'Kias stood up from behind a table he was firing from and shot another person in the head, making it explode in a shower of brain matter and gore, turning he ran up the stairs and onto the balcony overlooking the congregational room of the hab-unit, getting to the top of the stairs he called out to the other five members in the unit "im in position, whenever your ready to come up, im waiting" O'Kias aimed at the door and waited for the tau to get up.
Screaming made O'Kias loose concentration and look over at the corner, only to see one of the tau being dragged out of the window by six of the things that were once civilians.
Shouting O'Kias turned his weapon onto the poor soul, if O'Kias allowed him to be taken, he would either be eaten alive, or be turned into one of the strange beings, sadly he opened fire and put the poor fire warrior out of misery, before shooting at the six that had dragged him out, killing them all.
Turning back to the door, he saw that they were starting to break through the barricade the fire warriors had created to stop them, O'Kias screamed through his vox "get up here, they are breaking through the main door, hurry!" before throwing a grenade which landed at the base of the door, a thing leaned forward and grabbed it and shoved the grenade into its mouth, thinking it was something worth eating, "you will find that a bit hard to chew, you bastard!" O'Kias muttered, just before the things head was enveloped in blue flames, along with its body and eight of the things surrounding it.
"Good job!" Shas'ui O'Shai murmured, taking a position along side him, his pulse rifle fitted into a gap in the railing, "but now we have a bigger hole for them to come through" gritting his teeth, O'Kias loaded a fresh battery into his pulse rifle, before looking down the optics of his rifle at one certain thing, it was covered in tatters of clothing, and its mouth and chin was covered in blood, at some point, it had lost its right arm, and there was blood dripping off and seeping into the ground, in the middle of its chest was a huge gaping hole, with pus and blood leaking out.
'How had it come to this' he thought to himself, 'how did this happen', he shot the thing in its head, which evaporated in a spray of blood, "O'Kias, we need to get out of here, i need you to get the radio which is down on the floor level, i only just found out we had the necessary tools up here to fix it" O'Shai glared at another member of the group "us four will cover you while you retrieve the radio!"
Standing up, O'Kias loaded a fresh battery in, before running for the stairs, jumping down three at a time, he turned a corner to find himself on ground floor, spinning behind a table, he peeked over the top of the turned over table, seeing the things breaking through the door, but thats not what he was here for, he kept on looking around for the radio, he saw it over in the corner opposite him, he would have to go right through the path of fire, gritting his teeth, he pulled the pin on a grenade, before rolling it along the floor to bump against one of the furtherest dead so far, 'at least it will slow them down' he thought, waiting for the explosion, when it came he stood up and ran across the room spraying fire in the general direction of the doorway.
Reaching the radio, O'Kias slung his rifle onto his shoulder and picking up the long range radio in one fluid motion, before turning around and running up the stairs, "I have it here" he panted before running onto the balcony, and starting to shoot down upon the poor people of this city.
After a long five minutes of shooting, they heard the radio static and and a transmitting tone being released "home base, this is Shas'ui O'Shai, i am in need of immediate assistance, i have five fire warriors and we are under heavy attack, our ammunition is running low, we have about four minutes left before we will be using our weapons as clubs, please send backup, PLEASE!" he finished shouting into the transmitter.
Waiting for the response after 20 long seconds a reply was heard "roger that O'Shai, logging onto your position, we will have six fire warriors in a devilfish and two crisis suits coming in for backup, we will be there in two minutes" a voice said before the radio quietened and O'Shai came back too the balcony "two minutes O'Kias, only two more minutes!" he said before throwing the last grenade down, so it spun and landed right in the middle of the door way, killing another eleven poor souls, he hoisted his pulse rifle and started taking head shots and the things killing them one by one.
Soon the screaming jets of a devilfish was heard, along with bursts of fire, and two fire warriors burst through the door, signaling for the men on the balcony to come to the devilfish with all speed, running full tilt down the stairs, the last five remaining members of the original squad jumped into the devilfish followed by another six from the other squad, "dont worry your out of the field for now" one of the shout encouragingly across the devilfish compartment, but that only made O'Kias even more empty and despairing than before, 'for now' he thought 'only for now?'
