Darac leaned over and punched Steele in the shoulder, Hard.
"Wake up sunshine, heads to shoot, limps to maim, and grubs to annihilate" Darac said.
"Jack, commo check. Open a line to Control" Darac said. He adjusted his cap and shooter's glasses.
"Time to check in" he said. Marcus made a motion with his hand and grunted.
"No, I'm ranking, I've got it. Thanks though" Darac said as Jack's screen unfolded.
"Retrieval team to Control, over" Darac said a moment later.
--Control to Retrieval Team, what's your situation, over?-- Anya's voice floated over the speakers while her image appeared on the screen.
--We've had heavy contact. Reporting in a beserker sighting, over-- Darac said, putting his thumb to his ear.
--Repeat that Retrieval, did you say a beserker sighting, over?--
--Confirmed Control. Also one beserker kill-- Darac said, letting a smirk cross his face.
--Without a Hammer? I bet that's a story-- another voice cut in, Hoffman's.
--Retrieval, what's your ETA to the salvage site, over?-- Hoffman asked.
--Command, we are at least 36 hours from target. We'll have to find a safe spot for the night, over-- Darac responded.
--Good thinking Retrieval, Kryll are still active in your area. Keep your heads down and report to Command in the morning. If you need to get a hold of us before that, go through Control. Command out-- Hoffman said, worrying the LT.
--Control, is there something we should know about, over?-- Darac asked.
--Negative retrieval, Hoffman's just babysitting this mission. It's rather important to the COG, over--
--Roger that Control, Retrieval out-- Darac said as he close the link.
"Sheeit, that doesn't sound too good. Hoffman watching over out shoulder like that man? Makes me think we're doing something much more dangerous than just a retrieval op" Dom said.
"It's lightmass parts, Dom, it's a big deal" Marcus responded.
