The sudden thudding of a walker’s feet a quarter mile off to the left was no huge surprise to Anders.  The large walker had been repositioned and was now coming after the two scouts.  Jason tried to steel his nerves as he turned to Harley, the other piece of bait in the trap and said, “Let’s double time it back to that park with all the statues and concrete.”  Even with the night vision goggles on, the men could not run at full speed.  They each had three rocket tubes, communications equipment and over a quarter mile of ground to cover.  Given their restraints though, they may still have set some sort of record.  Jason’s chest was heaving as he peered out from behind the large cement pedestal supporting a statue.  He mused aloud to Harley, “What kind of record would that be?  The fastest one third mile run with sixty pounds of equipment loosely held or loosely slung? ”  Harley readied the collapsible sights on his rocket tube and said, “I’m not sure, but I’d be willing to wager we’ll have to rerun it carrying a breadbox to make it official.  Do you think Defense Corps will pay us a  bonus if we get in a record book?  How about shortest mission on record?  We may be a candidate for that one.”    The evenly paced thudding of the huge walker continued from behind a row of buildings.  Up until then, the sky had been illuminated only by the thick blanket of stars which hung over Chronos.    

The lighting quickly changed as the tracers from six .50 caliber auto-cannons illuminated the field that the forward observers had just exited at their record pace. Anders reflected on the thin line between hunter and prey as he watched the six solid red streams engulf the field and move slowly toward them in a systematic probing fusillade.  Both scouts secreted themselves behind the solid block of concrete and listened as the sweeping curtain of destruction bore down on their position.  The sound a chain gun makes is closer to the high speed whine of machinery than a traditional gun.  The sounds of thousands of rounds become indistinct and blend together in a harmonious high pitched buzz. The walker had five forward facing guns.  Three of the guns stuck out of portals in the face of the walker and though they could traverse, their field of fire was limited to what was directly in front of the walker.  The other two guns were in turrets which were essentially rotating cylinders mounted on the front corners of the walker.   Four of the five forward facing guns had traversed all that they could without hitting the building bordering the side street the walker was on and they simply shut down and waited for the walker to clear the building and give them a clear shot. Only one gun remained firing.   The shrill tone emitted from the bank of guns mellowed some as the single gun emitted a much reduced 6,000 rounds per minute.  With the lessening of the rate of fire, Anders and Harley moved deeper in to the memorial park, taking care to move from one cement obstruction to another ...
