Bob Decon descended from the Atlanta( the shuttle he had just been sleeping in) and into the everlasting blackness that lied beneath him. He couldn't see anything even with the flashlight on. He was begging to wonder if this really was a planet, and not space. But there were no stars and that destroyed his hypothesis.
He had fallen about five hundred feet and eventually the rope straitened, and he was on a short descend to the planet's surface. If it had one.
In one hand, he carried an MA6D Assault Rifle, and in the other, a long motion tracker/scanner. The tracker detected nothing, but the sensor said that there was going to be land under his feet in a little while.
So, down and down he went, hoping he could get the energy source and get out. Suddenly, he heard a beep. It was form the motion tracker. He looked at it and it said the source of movement was right in front of him. He raised his Assault Rifle, and waited for any sign of life.
He waited like that for three minutes. He finally calmed down and lowered the gun.
"Must be a malfunction," he said to himself, relieved.
Suddenly, a large black object flew up in front of him.
"Shit!" he yelled.
Whatever it was on the rope, and cutting. He was going to try and shoot, but thought he would cut the rope with the bullets, and then decided the thing would cut it if he didn't. Either way, he was going to be falling the rest of the distance down.
He raised the Assault Rifle and was about to pull the trigger when the rope snapped and he fell about 12 feet to the ground. He landed on his back, with his shields taking in the impact for him.
He immediately got up and fired nonstop were he guessed the rope was. He used up all of the 60 bullets in his clip, and only got returned with a howl. He heard climbing, and then any trace of the thing was gone.
He was surprised he was still alive, but assumed he was lucky. He would have called the Atlanta, so he could get another exit down there, but remembered Legend was the only one awake onboard. AIs can't carry ropes, even in the 26th century.
He only had one choice but to continue onward. He focused his flashlight in front of him and saw he was in a large room.
The place was made out of stones. It was like a city. A destroyed one though. In front of him lay the ruins of what looked like a Mayan city. There were many buildings out there, and the power source was coming from a large sky-scraper like structure in the center of it all.
He walked through the ruins of the ancient city, his flash light the only sign of illumination there. He finally made it to the door of the main structure, and walked inside.
Like the whole city, the place was pitch black. He shined the flashlight on the stone walls, and saw he was in a large hallway that led to a staircase. There were pillars lining the sides of the hallway, with statues of weird looking creatures.
They were black, and had huge crest like heads with jagged spikes at the end. Six eyes lined the side of the head, while two eyes looked in the front. They had two arms with large ands and huge claws at the end. Their legs were long and muscular. They had a set of closed jaws that looked like a set of long knives. He was glad they were just statues.
He moved through the hallway and he made it to the stair case in about 5 minutes. As he moved along, one of the statues jumped into the shadows of the ceiling. Bob turned around and saw the empty pillar.
"Oh shit!" he muttered.
He turned around and was face to face with one of the monsters. Except it wasn't a statue. It opened its mouth and made a loud shriek that would have made his old Boot Seargeant jump. All of its red eyes were on him now even when twenty more of them jumped down from the ceiling.
Bob fired his Assault Rifle in every direction, and saw the monsters fall down from the impact of the bullets. He ran up the stairs and saw the rest of the statues start to move. The stairs led him to a balcony that looked down onto the street he had previously been walking on.
He looked around the balcony and saw that the only exit was the door he had just walked through, the one the monsters were blocking right now. He fire the Assault Rifle at one of the monsters and watched as light green blood oozed out.
He then jumped off the balcony and on to the street. He ran in the direction he had entered from and heard the shrieks of the monsters behind him. He ran faster than he knew he ever could, and made it to the shuttle ASAP.
He jumped without thinking and grabbed onto the broken strand of rope. He started climbing up. He heard the monsters screaming in the darkness below, and then two of them jumped out of the shadows and onto him.
They clawed at him and he watched as blood stains formed on his armor. He kept climbing and screaming.
"AHHHHHHHH, GET OF ME YOU BASTARDS!"
