Ch.10 - Crossing the line

Ep.45 – Endurance training

Rain dripped down into the narrow gap between her helmet and the armour plates. It smudged the sight of the visor and soaked her overall. Adelie crouched behind a fallen giant of the forest, gripped her XTC-24 submachine gun and tried to find a footing in the slippery mud. “There are two of them behind that boulder at two. Static.[…]

Ep.46 – Unplanned bath

“Are you hit?” “Nope, but narrowly so. Do you see it? Is it mobile?” “Don’t move. Ah, yeah, I see it. It’s at ten o’clock, and static.

Ep.47 – New traditions

Twenty-two steaming bodies plodded towards the changing room and showers. “Hey, Natey-boy!” Jake caught up with him. “Man, coach[…]

Ep.50 – Bedroom shenanigans

Adelie parked the truck in the barn next to the curvy forms of the Chieftain. Gravel crunched under their steps as they met behind it. She slipped her hand into Nate’s. “It’s going to be freezing tonight,” she said, her breath forming white clouds. “Yeah, winter is just around the corner.
