ooc: Like I said in the occ thread, Keiko couldnn't realize she was shot, so I'm gonna ignore the part in absence's post about makeiru.
Andre, Ryu and Takezo run across the construction site, all coming up with different actions to take, while the white dotted bug body takes a shot at Shin. Newbie Ryu is momentarily shocked by facing an alien for the first time. All he really wants right now, is to get out of there. Sensing this Andre shouts "Jump back up in the building with all you've got". Both brothers slide into a crouching position while thick veines appear on their thighs, just before they jump backwards into the air.
Much like Takezo did before, when he jumped into the building, the brothers face the same problem. Added to that the fact that the don't have eyes in the back of their heads, makes their jump all the more risky.
Andre's jump has a bit too much power for his angle, but he clears the jump into the third floor without too much damage. The suit protects him well from his impact into this floors ceiling.
Ryu on the other hand didn't quite control the suit well enough. He's used much more power and lands on the sixth floor after he has hit the edge of the floor plate, leaving him unconscious.
Takezo has drawn the wrong conclusion upon seeing the Makeiru alien fire the x-rifle on Keiko. Considering that Takezo had split up with the team early in the mission, he doesn't know that Makeiru wasn't with the others for some time. And after his own fights with the three "annoying b@stards", it's not surprising that he thinks some more infighting is going on. He's trying to shove Shin and Keiko out of Makeiru's line of fire and runs toward them. But before he has a chance to do so, both move out of the way in seperate directions, clearing a path for him.
Shin rolls to his right, taking aim and firing at one body. Keiko runs to her left and takes cover behind a cement mixer, where she is safe from a projectile fired on her by the pink dotted body.
But you could call Takezo's attempt of trying to save someone (probably his first) somewhat ill-advised. He only saw Makeiru taking aim at them, and acted on it without realizing the shot taken by the bug body. Shin did and moved out of the way, leaving Keiko in the line of fire. But Keiko moving out of the way, leaves Takezo in the wrong position, who's shown the error of his selfless ways by being hit with two alien projectiles (shoulder and back of the head).
Over at the edge of the site, Tomoe jumps to the aid of Dino, who's under some rubble. Half of the bug body is towering above the rubble, on which Tomoe promptly fires her weapon. Seconds after her shot takes out the grey dotted alien, Shin's shot implodes the white dotted bug body.
At this moment the other bug bodies make their move. The brown dotted body does not engage in battle and instead checks the direction where the brothers went, while the purple one moves in the direction of Dino and Tomoe.
Sean is missed by the blue dotted body, only to get shot by the makeiru alien, while the light blue and yellow bug bodies shot one arm each at Takezo. Knocked down to the ground from the previous two hits, smashing some wood plates, he still manages to avoid the first projectile. But he's got to react fast if he wants to also clear the second one. What will he do?
Tomoe has helped clear the debris from Dino, helping him to his feet. The tormented, beat up veteran still manages a smile after seeing who helped him. He says "Took you long enough.", just as two projectiles fly past them, shot by the red dotted alien.
A shot fired on Shin by the beige alien draws his attention but it misses him a bit too clearly. Realizing something is fishy, he turns his head and see's the black dotted body standing near him leaning over, and then "firing" his whole upper body at him. It sweeps Shin off his feet and shots him across the construction site into the fence, where the whole body explodes. But the blow is seemingly not like the previous ones, desinged to release the green goo. Instead it releases only a bit of goo, but the exploding part is more volatile.
The bugs that are attracted to the goo are still drawn to it. Makeiru, Keiko and Takezo who got hit once at most or just recently are still just attracting a few. But Shin and Tomoe who spread their goo, as well as Sean who got hit several times are starting to get "attacked" by a large number of small bugs. The same amount as Dino, who was almost completely drenched in that stuff, and is now half covered in sand and dirt, after his little fight.
A bit more and the bugs will be a real problem to those 4.
