Determined to avenge the death of their brothers, Perez and Clark set out to eradicate the evil that was infesting the colony on Mars. Perez an expert marksman and a tactician was ready to put some holes in skulls. Clark was the officer in charge and also a marksman, eager to test his metal. They both headed to the armory and geared up. Perez took the chainsaw and machine gun, Clark the shotgun.
Ready for action they proceeded down the halls and from room to room, searching and killing any spawn in their path. They were always pressed, stalked by the dark and malevolent things. They never had enough ammunition, the demons outnumbered the bullets and at times the pair had to resort to fists and power saw. Death lurked around every corner and behind every door. The darkness, concealed murder, itself an enemy.
With death at their back the marines opened a door and almost lost hope. Two Hellknights, a Manncubus, and several lesser fiends greeted them with hell in their black eyes. This must be the way out thought Perez, why else would it be so heavily guarded? A large security door was off to the left, but it may as well have been miles away. His heart sank. Perez snapped out of his self pity to the sound of a combat shotgun blasting away at the nearest Hellknight. The knight screamed, in rage or pain no one could tell, and swung his impossibly muscled arm at Clark but missed....twice!
The battle was a blur, grenades flew and exploded and caused destruction on unbelievable scale. There was oily blood, gore, and pieces of creatures everywhere. If there was a hell it was surely here. And then it happened, in a moment of clarity the pair saw that the path to the security door was clear. They ran to the door, pushed in the access card, and ran. They were clear for now, because they knew that the fiends pursued them.
During the debrief SSG Perez was quoted as saying that at one point, "We were knee deep in the dead".
