They kept to the sewers as they left. Dust rained down on them and it was nearly pitch black. Kyvan felt along the walls and held his breath as best as he could.
"Kyvan?" Bright whispered. "I hear something."
Kyvan paused and listened too. Something was coming from down the tunnel, the way they'd just come. It was getting louder. Kyvan's blood pressure spiked.
"Creatures," he hissed. "They're coming after us."
Try glanced back, she could feel her heart satrt to pound, they wouldn't be able to run fast with all these children. Somebody had to stay and fight or distract.
"Here." she said handing the kid she was holding over to another person,
"Go." she ordered, she pulled her knife out adn turned around,
"It's not a big tunnel, two people side by side should be able to hold it for a bit." she told Kyvan.
He nodded and turned to Red and Bright. "Get them to safety."
He pulled out his gun and stood next to Tristian. He was begining to get a veiw of the faster ones. They appeared to be a mixture of snake and hawk. He took aim and fired into one's skull. He knew he had a limited amount of bullets. he had to let every shot count.
Try gripped her knife tightly and swung it slashing and stabbing as the creatures came within her arm reach. She had her lips pressed together tightly, she didn't know how many creatures there were, but she was pretty sure there were too many to take down.
Kyvan shot another Creature, but there were just too many. They would kill him and Trisitain and then go after the children.
"We have to block the tunnel," he said. "It is the only way to protect them."
"Gotta plan?" she asked, she looked around, trying to find something to block the tunnel with, they could try and collapse the roof over them in, but it wans't guarenteed that the roof over teh children whould collapse too.
"There is dynamite a little ways down the tunnel. We can use that. C'mon!"
((Sorry it cut me off)
"We can draw them after us down another tunnel and then trap them in there! If we only use a little it should be safe!"
Try nodded, she slowly started to walk backwards, not turning ehr back to the creatures. She now and then looked back to check adn make sure the kids were still moving and that she didn't trip.
She used her knife to defend herself, slashing and stabbing, she was almost to the dynamite.
He took down one after the other, but he was running ouf of ammo. He fumled in his jacket with one hand and found a small box of matches. He tossed the box at Tristian. "Catch!"
Try grabbed the matches, she waited for a bit for Kyvan to back away from he rmore and then she knelt down and lit the dynamite. Everything seemed to go into slow mo as she got up and satrted to run, the last thing she rmemebered before blacking out is feeling rocks falling in and hitting her ankle on something.
((Sorry,Honor. Wasn't able to get to my computer and my phone is goofy :/ ))
Kyvan heard Tristain running and glanced behind him long enough to see her rushing away from the dynamite. The Creatures rush foward right as it exploded. Rocks began to fall everywhere and Kyvan saw them pelting Tristian. He tried to get to her but one knocked him to the side. He curled in a fetal position as the rocks rained down. He heard the Creatures shout as they were crushed and he prayed Tristain was alright and that the explosion hadn't hurt the others.
It seemed like an eternity before the rock fall stopped. Kyvan coughed on the dust. "Tristain! Tristian?"
Try groaned and opened her eyes, she coughed, dust filling her lungs from the fallen rocks. She wheezed and tried to sit up, her chest hurt, adn her legs felt like they couldn't move. Try looed around, she heard her name being called,
"Kyvan!" she called back,
"I'm not sure how well thought out this plan was." she muttered to herself, she looked at her legs, which had rocks on top of them, no wonder she couldn't move them. She groaned and allowed herself to lay back, this wasn't going to be easy to get out of.
Kyvan coughed and nodded. "You can say that again." He pushed against the rocks on him and they rolled away, luckily he had fallen under a large pipe that had deflected most of the larger pieces of rubble. "Are you hurt?"
"Not sure." Try said as she attempted to move the rocks from her legs to see how bad they were injured. Her hands were scraped up and teh dust made it difficult to breath, she looked around hoping they hadn't trapped themselves. Her head hurt adn she reached up, realizing she'd hit it on something. She looked around for Kyvan, she hated looking weak, but she needed someone to help her,
"Kyvan, help, please." she called out quietly struggling to get the rocks off her legs.
"I'm coming," he panted as he climbed over rocks. "Keep talking. So I can find you."
He glanced down the way they'd come. He saw multiple Creature bodies crushed under the rocks and the passage was entirely blocked that way. But there might be a way out farther down the tunnel.
Try put one hand to her bloody head, trying to feel out how extensive the damage was,
"Um..." Try said, unsure of what to say, "I don't know what to say..." she said, she quit trying to move the rocks and pressed her hands against her bleeding and hurt head,
"Hurry up, Kyvan." she called, gritting her teeth.
((Say do you want them to get away? To be captured? Maybe they're captured but teh rebelion thinks they died or something? I dunno, just 'thinking out loud' so to speak....))
((Yeah, that'd be fine with me. Would you like one to be captured or both...?))
Kyvan hurried over to where he saw the rubble shifting. He began to heave the heavy rubble off of Tristain. It took him about ten minutes before he saw the top of her head. "Tristain."
