Ooc: Holidays leave me exhausted! I'm glad you're better now. =D Here is my sad attempt at a sort of attack... Since White is supposed to be showing off, I didn't want to write in anyone shooting or anything. So it's not really a fight... I swear I make less sense the more I try to type. >_>
Ah, what was he...? Jade watched as White attempted to explain himself to the soldiers, their raised guns and unbelieving expressions making her feel as though this was pointless. But they didn't shoot. She frowned when he grabbed the female soldier, wondering what he had said to her... Nodding her head when White called out to her, she watched him jump off of the roof.
More spider-like machines were advancing towards the base, as though they normally traveled and fought in packs. Out in the distance were more larger, slower machines. Could White really take on more than one? He had lived so far, but each fight had been against only one other machine. Now there were dozens, crawling over debris, making unearthly noises as wayward energy from the earlier fight urged them forward. They could sense the humans now, and their singular motivation kicked in; every living creature needed to be eradicated.
Harold stood at the edge of the roof, his rifle raised and aimed, his finger on the trigger. It felt safer, more sane, to simply shoot White down. He was a machine, an unusually advanced, human looking machine. That could only lead to trouble. Harold had only tried to get the others to stop shooting because of Jade... Tightening his grip, he aimed away from White, waiting for anything that might come from behind.
Half a dozen spider machines practically tripped over each other, as they headed towards the base. Some jumped, their red eyes lighting up, as they targeted White. The others jumped at the warehouse, their long legs easily gripping onto the sides of the wall, crawling upwards towards the roof. In the distance, something very large roared. The noise echoed over the city, causing some of the soldiers to flinch. Before the echo had subsided, whatever the machine was had powered up its weapon. A bright light suddenly appeared, and shot through the sky, as though it had been fired from a canon. It must have been a warning, as the shot passed harmlessly, but closely, over the building.
