>> Louissa's voice sqwacks over the radio on a secure channel. "Alex,
>> I'm hearing gunfire. Do you need assistance?"
>> Alex's sixth sense is going off again.
> "We have a problem," Alex responds. "Being stalked."
"Oh..." she says. "I'm coming... out."
> Alex will pop up, fire a shot [Strike: 11] and then retreat back
Alex hits the stalker she's shooting at [Dodge: 4, Damage: 20MD]. She
hears a faint whistle, sounding very much like a bird, but which Alex
knows is a signal.
Louissia creeps up, marks where Alex fired, and sprays the area [Strike:
The stalker doesn't even see this other attack coming, and is it, along
with another one [Damage: 21MD].
"That'll show 'em." Louissa gloats quietly over the radio.
At that moment, Alex and Louissa hear roaring over head. They look up
to see a fighter jet of some kind losing control several thousand feet
above and to the north. It is being pursued by five other jets, much
more distant, though, oddly, they all appear to be of the same make with
the same colors.
The lone jet manages at the last minute to pull up and stabilize before
punching into the ground behind Alex's companions, but is racing towards
her position at maybe a sixty feet above the ground.
Louissa shouts "What the f..." Then her radio goes silent.
Alex's sense of danger is going off madly. Though whether it's her or
Louissa that's now in danger is hard to tell.
