The tall woman darted from boulder to boulder, taking cover behind each in turn. All around her were the pings of projectiles ricocheting off the giant stones, and the hiss of energy weapons’ fire. She took a quick glance then faked a leap from her hiding place. Several weapons fired at once. Had she actually taken that leap it would have been her last. She sped from the other side of the boulder and ran to the next. In this fashion she crossed half a kilometer of battle zone.
Suddenly there was a shout and a hail of covering fire was laid down for her. She raced to the shelter of the overturned land transport ship, and the soldiers hunkered down behind it.
