(OOC: No probs about the double post. I was going to get these three out of here, but I had a slight amount to drink last night, on top of refereeing all morning I wasn't able to get to it.
OOC #2: At the request of Riser who is busy at the moment, I'll be controlling Viki in this post, and writing her death)
There it is.
That sick twisted voice booming. Mr. Danya was back, and from the sounds of it he was happy. The list of names he went through was astounding. They had really killed that many people over the span of days they were here.
A groan of pain from Viki turned Gabe's attention away from what Danya was saying.
"Vik, he's gone don't worry. We'll get you out of here. We'll get you to the hospital." Gabe said frantically.
"What about me?" Came Steve's voice.
In the commotion of Lenny shooting at them and the announcements right after that, Gabe failed to notice that his comrade had been shot again.
"Steve...oh shit man."
"Fuck it. Don't worry about it, its a surface wound, bullet didn't stop in me, its just blood. Let's get Viki out of here." Steve said through gritted teeth.
The boys moved to grab Viki but she feebly motioned for them to stop.
"Guys..don't bother. I'm going." Viki managed to gasp out through the pain of her wound.
"Dammit, Steve there has got to be something we can do?" Gabe yelled as he dropped to his knees. He just couldn't let Viki die here.
"I'll go get our bags, maybe our med-kits have something in them." Steve said quietly as he turned and jogged back towards the cave, holding his ribcage.
"Viki...Vik, Steve's gone to get our first aid kits, we'll help you. Get you better." Gabe said quietly to her.
"Gabe, I'm sorry about Evan..so sorry." Viki said as she opened her eyes to look at Gabe.
Gabe was speechless. He felt the warm tears rolling down his cheeks as Viki looked at him.
Viki used her last bit of strength to take Gabe's hand in her own. She forced a smile.
"You'll be fine Gabe. You get you and Steve out here." She breathed out the last words as she felt herself slip away. Her body went limp as her eyes closed, her final vision being one of Gabe smiling back down at her, and that was all she'd wanted.
G06 - Viki Valentine - Dead
Gabe smiled back down at her while his tears kept coming. He felt her hand go limp and saw her eyes close and knew that she was gone. The sadness he felt was turning into anger. He started to take some deep breathes to help deal with it. He looked down at Viki's body.
"I'll get us out of here Viki and I'll get that asshole who did this to you. Mark my words."
As Gabe let Viki's hand fall, he stood up, still gripping the Taurus in his other hand. He looked down at it and he knew he would be the one to avenge Viki. He wouldn't fail her like he'd failed Kara. Lenny Priestly was a dead man.
"Gabe!! Fucking run!!!"
The yell broke Gabe's focus on his gun as he turned to see Steve carrying two bags and running the best he could, pain etched on his face. It was now that Gabe realized there was a distinctive beeping coming from around his neck.
Gabe ran to Steve taking his bag on the fly.
"This way!" Gabe yelled to Steve as the beeping got faster.
The boys took off with Gabe in the lead in the direction they'd seen Lenny disappear.
