I stared at the scene in front of me; five tall Cataii were cowering with Tobi pointing his handgun at them. He was nervous, I could just see the gun quivering slightly, but at least he had the safety off. His face looked calm though I’m pretty sure he was terrified. The soldier Cataii lay on the floor, dying, his blood oozing out of him.Read More Project New Dawn Chapter Twenty-Six
DRIP. DRIP. DRIP.
The smell was absolutely terrible, we were in the sewers of London, and I was almost gagging with the awful smell. I looked back at my ‘crew’; Tobi, looking younger than I had ever seen him before; Noah, appearing to be silent yet determined and Finn Harris, his head nearly touching the roof of the circular sewer.
“Just one moment,” I heard Tobi say, then his head popped up from under the desk. A flickering appeared above the desk, and a model of Ravensville appeared, looking remarkably stable. Returning to the Mountain, I had called a meeting. Now we were in the conference room looking at a lifelike model of Ravensville.Read More Project New Dawn Chapter Twenty-Three
“Hello, Alex, you said you wanted to speak to me,” Larry’s voice broke me from my reverie. Realising I had been sat at my desk, staring at the folder for the last ten minutes, I shook myself off.
“Take a load off,” I told him, gesturing towards the chairs in front of the TV. As he settled in, I closed the door, which automatically sealed the room, “Do you want anything? Coke, Lemonade, water?”
“I’ll take a water,” he grinned as I reached under my desk for the mini-fridge pulling out a water and a Sprite. I chucked it at him, which he caught easily.
“Are you ready?” Noah asked, entering the armoury. I clipped the tactical vest on, checking my sidearm was clean before sliding it into the holster on my thigh. I looked at him speculatively.
“Nearly ready,” I replied, picking up the sniper rifle, “Have you changed your mind?”
“I told you, I’m not letting you go on your own with Tobi,” Noah replied with a fond look. We had argued in circles, but finally, I had relented he could come, so now I glanced at him. He was wearing similar clothing to me; green cargo trousers, a green jacket and a tactical vest. He slipped the earpiece over his ear, then settled it inside.
I woke up stiff the next morning, my back hurting from the night on the couch. I got up checking on Tobi, who was still snoring peacefully. I dressed then tried to wake Tobi before leaving the apartment, taking my morning things with me. After a quick face wash and teeth clean, I grabbed a cup of tea and slid into the Operations Room moments later. Grabbing one of the headsets, I slipped a battery into place, taking a seat on the computer designated U.K. mainland on the European Division bank of computers. In the last three weeks, we had got connected to the Satellites via Cheyenne Mountain. On the T.V. bank, a large map of the world showed tiny red dots. These, we believed, were where the aliens were. I began monitoring different frequencies for anyone, looking for Kelvedon Hatch.Read More Project New Dawn Chapter Ten
Despite a late night and sleeping poorly, I was still up really early. Contrary to what I had told the others yesterday, I decided to do a little exploring independently. I left Matty and Ben a note, grabbed one of the radio’s then had a quick face wash on the level below. I hastily made my way down to Level Two. After exploring for a bit, taking a quick look at the Education Centre, I found the Security Operations Room. Unlocking the door with the master control, I found a large bank of computer screens and two large data banks.Read More Project New Dawn Chapter Six
No noise seemed to come from Tobi’s mouth as he froze with a look of horror on his face. Time seemed to slow as I turned, bracing myself for the fatal bite of a zombie. However, as I faced the other direction, I felt myself bubbling with nervous laughter, almost giggling hysterically. In the corner, still slightly in shadow, were three mannequins. I guess, from Tobi’s perspective, they would appear to look like zombies.Read More Project New Dawn Chapter Four
