Notes-The main character’s name is Xavier who is a Lutari, which is an Otter Humanoid. This is why he runs on all fours.
I climbed the stairs my heart pounding, my breathing labored, and carrying this kid wasn’t making it easier. How many flights have I…”The door!”, shouted out Daniel.”I see it.”, I said rounding the last flight of stairs. I barged through and stumbled onto the roof gasping for breath. I activated my Tac-Comm, “Sir, I’m here…What exactly am I looking for?”
"…Look south-east, you should see one of our birds coming in. They will not be able to stop, Xavier, this is a moving delivery. Do you understand that?", responded V.
I whipped my head around and saw the ship moving in quickly, “Understood.” I unclipped my pack and dropped the kid off my back. I opened up my pack and pulled out the package, a small black box. Good it’s just thin enough. “Alright kid, take this,” I said handing him the bag, “and get back inside that stairwell. Now!”He grabbed the pack and ran for the stairwell.
He follows orders well…dang that bird’s moving fast. I put the box in my mouth and jumped onto the edge of the building and began to run on all fours. The bird slowly pulled up.”TOSS IT!”, yelled a man as the back end of the ship opened.
I pivoted my head and threw. The box seemed to hover in the air between us and that’s when I saw the incoming missile. “Missile!”, I screamed jumping from the roof. Next thing I heard was a large explosion followed by a huge heat wave and fire in my face. The shock wave and fire blew me away. Everything slowed as shrapnel flew around me and fire threatened to consume me. That changed when I hit the ground, as everything shot back to normal speed as I bounced and rolled across the roof as metal and fire flew around me. I came to and abrupt stop when my back slammed into the roof wall on the other side. My vision was dazed but I still saw the huge metal slab come careening at me screeching on the roof. Time slowed again as it neared and then…it stopped not three feet from me.
I screamed out in agony, the right side of my body felt like it was on fire, my nerves were on overdrive. My lungs burned from the smoke as I coughed, and I felt searing pain in my side. My arm was completely numb, unable to be moved. I looked down and saw a piece of metal, atleast a foot long jabbing out of my side and blood was pouring out into a puddle. Suddenly I heard a scream. I looked up and saw a ship fly by, the one that fired the missile. I barely missed the logo, it was Zakar.
If I saw them, they saw me. I need to move fast, and I’m not going anywhere with this slag in me. I grabbed the metal and pulled with my left hand. The pain was almost unbearable, and I clenched my mouth shut to keep from crying out. It came out with a schlick and blood oozed out of the wound at an alarming rate. My vision began to fade. Oh hell no, I ain’t done yet.
I looked up and saw something blurry move towards me, “Daniel, get the hell outta here! Now!”
"No, if I leave you’ll die!", he said setting down the my pack and pulling out the first aid kit I kept in there for emergencies. "What do I need?"
"Alright, first hand me Hydrogen Peroxide."
He quickly found it and handed it to me, “Now what?”
I opened the bottle with my mouth and dumped all of it onto the wound, “Should be a syringe labeled Morphine. Hand me that.”
He looked for awhile and then handed it to me.
I ripped off the cap with my mouth again and jabbed it into my side and pressed the needle. It took affect almost immediately, “Damn, I forgot how that felt…I need bandages…bandages and cotton balls.”
He rummaged through the kit and dumped out all the cotton balls and bandage wrap.
I grabbed the cotton balls and dumped the rest of the hydrogen peroxide on them as I coughed from more smoke, “Alright I need you to put the,” I coughed some more, the smoke was getting thick, “to put the cotton balls in…the wound.”
"Just do it Daniel!"
He grabbed the cotton balls and began to stuff them into the wound. Blood got all over his hands. He quickly ran out.
Damn it, a kid his age shouldn’t see this…do this…”Alright next,” I took a deep breath which was a mistake as I began a coughing fit from the smoke, “wrap…wrap the bandages.”, I said sitting up.
He did as told and diligently wrapped the my body with one roll.
"Now I need a sling for my arm," I coughed again, "think you can do that?"
He nodded and began to work on the sling.
I took note of the surroundings, the fire was getting close, to close.
"Look I don’t wanna rush you but we need to move. Now." I said.
"Almost…Done!", he said stepping back to admire his work.
I lifted up my left arm, “Good help me up.”
