Default Re: Entry F - The Battle for Durin IV

Causen continued into the escape pod and booted it up, entering details into the computer.
‘A minute Solaris,’ Causen called form the pod, typing rapidly into the computer.
Solaris drew the bolt pistol from his belt, and loosed a shot, killing the first Tyranid as it rounded the corner. He continued to blast away as sounds of the two beasts duelling echoed in the distance.
‘Thirty seconds…’ Causen called out, still preoccupied.
A screech rang out from the next chamber before the Carnifex slammed into the wall perpendicular to the doorway, dead. Then Arizon rounded the corner, ichor dripping off his sword, a testament to his most recent kill. Solaris leapt forward, his hellblade swivelling into a complex pattern of blows. The lord struck back, savage fury glinting in his eyes and caught Solaris off balance, forcing him rapidly back into the chamber. Solaris blocked each blow with desperation, parrying with years’ worth of experience.
‘Fifteen seconds,’ Causen called out more desperately.
Solaris tapped into the warp, kicking out a shockwave before tearing a hole in reality in front of Arizon. The daemon prince roared in frustration before leaping straight over, and landing on Solaris’s side, cutting off all chance of escape.
‘Ten seconds.’
Solaris lashed out, channelling force energy into his muscles and struck Arizon hard, knocking him into the rifts pull. He reached out, grabbing Solaris’s leg in one last gesture of hatred. Solaris was going down with him.
‘Five seconds.’
Solaris’s grip slipped, and he was dragged back, reeling towards the rift. Arizon stared at him with malice in his eyes, and Solaris dug his hellblade into the plasteel.
‘Solaris! We have to leave now!’
Then he turned and saw Solaris, left to his fate.
‘Leave me!’ Solaris said, throwing the geneseed to Causen, ‘I can look after myself.’
‘But...’
‘Go!’ Solaris ordered, a look of concentration falling over his face.
Causen secured the geneseed, and hesitated for a second before hitting the launch button. The rockets kicked in immediately thrusting the pod into the sky at an astronomical speed. Solaris was dead, but the mission was completed. Too many heroes had been lost to the Tyranids; something had to be done about it. Causen felt gravity slip away and detached his belt, plugging in co-ordinates for a short range jump.

Solaris watched as the door closed, channelling all of the power into his arms, before drawing the laspistol in his left hand. As the engine ignited he enhanced his sensors, slowing time and fired one shot with the Guard laser weapon. The laser impacted with Arizon’s left eye and he let go of Solaris, and was dragged into the warp, the resulting lack of pressure launched Solaris forward and with a well timed contraction, he launched himself out of range of the rift and into the pod shaft. Quickly he summoned a shield around himself and leapt up the shaft activating a magnetic grappling hook on his wrist, attaching himself to the craft. It would be a bumpy ride.

A thumping noise sounded on the hull and Causen looked out the view port to see an all familiar helmet staring back at him. He quickly released the hatch, decompressing the cabin.
‘You’re alive?’
‘What, did you think that some badass daemon prince was going to kill me?’
‘You’re lucky to be alive!’
‘What do you mean lucky? I make my own luck.’

They would be picked up in a week and immediately counter attack this splinter fleet of Leviathan. They would have their revenge.
