"I could use a little help guys," Keri growled into her com, as she pulled a splinter of rock out of her cheek. She could feel the blood running down her face from the wound it left. He had been way too close with that shot and she didn't want to give him another chance. She had been in a deadly dance with Torvald for an hour now while she waited for her partners to show up. Moving from boulder to outcropping then on to another boulder trying to get a clear shot at each other. Easing her head around the side of the huge rock she was hiding behind, she spotted him moving towards her. Snapping a quick shot at him the slide on her automatic locked open showing it was her last shot. She hadn't planned on a prolonged fire fight and had only brought one extra magazine. And now it was empty along with the first that she now carried in her pocket.
"Crap!" she forced herself to whisper. "Beech. Derek. Where are you?"
"Almost... there," came the out of breath answer from Derek.
