Ruq led the three faux Ergot, with Hannibal behind Ruq, Jicheld behind him, with Walters bringing up the rear. They walked briskly through the forest, Hannibal listening to the chattering of smaller wildlife up above them. True to his warrior nature, Hannibal made no sound in undergrowth, when behind him, Jicheld spoke:: Jicheld: How far until we reach the Dark Gate Ruq? Ruq: A setevar ahead. Do you grow weary? Jicheld: Not weary, but eager to deal with this threat to our people. Parker: The distance means nothing, Ruq. We are warriors. Ruq: Haavarr! Walters: And as warriors, we will prevail. oO Maybe I'm laying it on too thick? But they seem to act rather theatrical.. Oo :: It was about thirty minutes later when Ruq stopped abruptly. That is when Jicheld saw it. The structure was imbedded in the surface and surrounded by felled trees and disturbed ground. :: Ruq: There. Witness the abomination pierces Mother Ground. :: The structure looked like it had definitely entered through the atmosphere. It had the tell tale scorch marks of a reentry. Iza had stowed away a tricorder and kept it hidden under the hologram. He made a= motion like he was scratching near his waist but in truck he was opening the tricorder on his belt and set it to scan continuously in silent mode. = It would record everything they encountered for later study. :: Jicheld: :: Nodding to Hannibal. :: It has truly wounded Mother Ground. My= brothers and I will work together to destroy it. Walters: That we will, Mother Ground demands it. Ruq: The bravest of my warriors have fallen here. Now, together we will make *it* fall. Parker: Ruq, you have shown us to the Dark Gate and in so doing, you have= shown Father Great Sky and Daughter Night Sky your heart. There is no need= for you to go further. It is time for us High Dwellers to show our hearts.= If Mother Ground claims us, we will go with honor. Return to the village,= and tell them what we will do. Ruq: No. This is my hunt now, as well as yours. Parker: We will return with answers for our brethren. It is our bond. Jicheld: Yes, allow us to carry this burden. You and your tribe have lost= enough warriors to this abomination. Walters: We shall overcome this evil force, or we will perish trying to. Bring word to our tribes, that we fight bravely for Mother Ground, and prepare a feast for our victorious return. oO Yeah, that might have been a= bit too much... But what is he doing? Oo :: Ruq marched past the High Dwellers and pounded up the metal, conical, husk protruding from the ground. There was a hollow noise, indicating just= how big the structure was inside. And then there was another noise =E2=80= =93 a hiss followed by a shrill scraping of metal-on-metal.:: Ruq: That's right, you foul beast. Open your mouth to swallow you= r poison! :: The entrance peeled back into utter darkness, and Ruq charged in.:: Parker: ? Jicheld: Well, that was unexpected. What are your orders sir? Walters: I'm not getting any readings from the inside, so we don't know what's awaiting us. And I don't read Ruq's lifesigns any more. On the positive side, I've not gotten any increase in radiation when this thing opened. I have no indications who built it, though. It's definitively not= from this planet, that I can say for sure. :: Turning to Jicheld:: Do you= have anything? Parker/ Jicheld: response?
