Cory loaded up his sniper gear. Rob filled a metal case with other weapons to bring: An RPG-122: laser guided rocket-propelled grenade launcher, an SC-429 which looked a lot like an anti-tank rocket launcher, but only dispelled a charge of electrons at pinpoint accuracy (think of a giant laser pointer, but will cut through pretty much anything within its 30 foot range) and many more weapons of differing levels of damage capabilities, I just want to get across the point that we were heavily armed with weapons you may know and others that you definitely do not. Also, everyone carried an M4 and two M9ís. For those of us without specialties, they were our only weapons unless the need to wield something with a bigger capacity for destruction.
We made our way to the Transporters. There were eight of them, because there were eight members of Alpha Squad. This made sure we all arrived at exactly the same time and no one would be stuck fighting alone before others arrived.
Being the new guy, I was designated to bring the case of weapons with me. I dragged it through the doorway into Transporter 8 and set it on the floor at my feet. The room was lit only by blue LEDís lining every edge of the walls and ceiling and circles in the same blue LEDís in the center of each wall, the ceiling, and the floor. I was instructed to stand exactly in the center of the circle on the floor and put the case of weapons directly in front of my feet.
When the door closed, I got the feeling that something was pushing and pulling me from every direction, all at once. The pressure was almost unbearable - a very odd experience and one that I would never really get used to. As I stood there with my M4 ready, not knowing what to expect when I reached the other side, I began to feel a pulsing throughout my entire body while still feeling like I was being pushed and pulled from all angles. Then suddenly there was a jolt of bright light and all I could see was white. My stomach was reeling and I was sure I would puke. Thankfully just when I thought I couldnít take it anymore, I was standing on a boat dock next to the rest of Alpha Squad.
Out into the water, we could see an old wooden fishing boat being thrashed by what looked like a giant octopus. I had been told that they would take forms that were unbelievable, but I never expected to see a giant octopus destroying a fishing boat. Being on a boat dock, there were a few boats tied up. We all jumped into a decent sized luxury catamaran and Chris got it hotwired in no time. We flew across the choppy water to where this Demon was tormenting the fisherman and his crew.
