Their shots made bright darts in the air. Echvehnurth toppled and fell, one on fire, another with his ribcage blown wide. ‘Dancers, Dancers! ’ Soneka yelled as he fired. ‘CR19! We need help here. Immediate. ’ ‘Stand by, Dancers,’ he heard an uxor’s voice reply. ‘We are aware. ’ Soneka yelled. ‘Now. ’ One of the men beside him suddenly fell sideways, split in two from shoulder to groin. Pressurised blood escaped in all directions at once. Soneka wheeled and saw an echvehnurth spinning his falx back from the blow to strike again.
A falx swung and Soneka sidestepped, kicking its owner’s feet out from under him so that he fell on his back. Soneka ran the Nurthene through with his bayonet. He dropped on one knee, raised the carbine to his shoulder, its barrel resting on the fork of his blade grip, and picked off two more of the charging enemy with aimed shots. Their pink robes trailed out as they crashed backwards. Lon was beside Soneka, along with three other men, firing in sustained bursts. Their shots made bright darts in the air.
They were casters-in of devils. A shockwave threw Soneka over on his face. He had blood in his mouth and sand up his nose. He rose on his hands and saw a geno trooper curled up beside him, blackened by heat, smouldering. In the rapid strobe light of multiple explosions, he saw other corpses scattered around him. The sand was burning. Bashaw Lon came running out of the flashing air. He was yelling at Soneka. Soneka could see Lon’s mouth working, but heard nothing. Lon hauled Soneka to his feet. Sound was coming back, but only in short bursts.
