You're the first to fire, and place a bullet cleanly between what you suspect are Koo's eyes (it's always hard to tell with hanar). Either way, he drops to the floor. No matter what happens now, at least that smug jellyfish won't be wiggling out of here alive.

You and Caleb slowly spin in a circle, back-to-back, firing your sidearms with arms outstretched in front of you. The technique would have been more effective had you actually been surrounded on all sides.

Ten mercs drop before Caleb takes a bullet in the hips, and you tag two more of your aggressors before a shot sails through your chest. You hit the ground with a thud and look to your old partner. Like you, he probably only has moments left to live.

"You know what's funny?" he groans.

"What?" you ask quietly.

"I was only a few days away from retirement," he manages. Suddenly, an Eclipse sniper puts him out of his misery.

You use your final moments to shake your head. "That's not funny at all," you say.

The End.
