"Die, fucker!" Lofflin swore angrily, as he aimed and squeezed the trigger at close range. He felt a kick in his shoulder, and a bright blast of flame and a deafening explosion blasted the metal demon. In such close quarters, Lofflin was lucky he wasn't blown backwards or lit on fire! Metallic squeals and a sound like a hammer blow followed as the explosion slew the thing round, staggering backwards! It smashed into the bulkhead, and stood there as the smoke slowly cleared, stunned, leaning into the dent it had made into the side of the corridor!

After long seconds it stirred, tottered on its four-legged undercarriage while it fought for balance – swinging its four arms wildly, looking almost like a bizarre cartoon character as it tried to keep its balance. The place where the shell had hit was dented slightly; the metal was blasted clean of paint and grime and shone brightly with reflected light. The four spot lights on its shoulders changed from bright white to a deep red and stayed on him. Lofflin worked the pump slide and loaded the second grenade. The fear had stopped abruptly, as if the machine now had other problems to worry about… It moved forward slowly, menacingly. Lofflin coolly brought the weapon to his shoulder and aimed for the same spot he'd hit previously – the thing's upper left shoulder, which had been weakened…at least, he hoped had been weakened! It sure was dented though, which was a good sign!

Lofflin squeezed the trigger a second time. Another loud, turbulent, hot explosion followed as the shell struck home! The hammer-blow spun the metal monster around, this time smashing it over onto i

ut even being asked... He hoped she was watching.

The metal monster was damaged now and like a wounded animal, it was angry. It seemed to stumble and fall several times with much noise and fuss as it tried desperately to catch up with Lofflin. He turned and saw it, the lights on the thing shrinking in the distance between them. Even so, Terror wasn't far behind him… Then he tripped over an unseen obstacle, and smashed into the deck hard. Cursing his clumsiness in his near blind panic, Lofflin rolled over on the dirty, gritty deck grid, and struggled back to his feet, doing his best to ignore the various aches and pains as they began reporting in to his racing, frantic mind! Tired and panting, his heart missed a couple of beats as he desperately strained his hearing, trying to make out anything… anything at all. Suddenly all fell silent behind, and he could see no lights there. All was silent, a heavy silken nothingness, just like the impenetrable cloak of darkness beyond the little circle of light he was on the fringes of. Which way had he been running? This way? That way?
