Mass Effect: Surviving Earth Snippet II

INT. OFFICE OF DEFENSE CORP -- DAY

Leonard and his men enter the room, where Lieutenant Colonel Ares radioed from, through a door. They see the radio on a chair, but the room is full of men on husk spikes.

LEONARD MITCHELL

(Disappointed)

No...

They look up at the humans stuck on the spikes. They are the members they are supposed to rescue.

SOLDIER 6

I’ve seen these. Geth devices, or so we thought. I think they convert human bodies into those husks.

SOLDIER 4

(Upset)

We should've went to Rivera.

LEONARD MITCHELL

I didn't ask you.

SOLDIER 5

Guys!?

Two banshee screech and come out from another entrance in the back of the room.

LEONARD MITCHELL

Oh what the heck! Open fire!

SOLDIER 4

(Getting to cover)

What the heck are these!?

LEONARD MITCHELL

(Crouching behind a spike)

Who cares! Take em out!

The banshees attack. Leonard and his men fight them off.

SOLDIER 6

These cursed things won't die!

LEONARD MITCHELL

Keep firing!

SOLDIER 7

(Panicky)

Stay back! Stay back!

Soldier 7 is firing as many bullets as he can towards the banshee. He is then picked up with the claw of the banshee and killed by its biotic powers.

SOLDIER 8

(Watching Soldier 7 die)

Holy S-!

A banshee’s scream interrupts him and she fires her biotic powers at a distracted Soldier 8, killing him. The remaining four continue to move around the husk spikes while firing at the biotic shields of the banshees. The banshees shift through the room and take out two more soldiers and injure one more.

Leonard picks up another rifle and fires both of them at the banshees. He screams as he continues to fire into the banshees. The bullets finally break the biotic shields. The two banshee fall to the ground, slain, one at the feet of the injured Soldier 5.

SOLDIER 5

(Disturbed)

What- the- heck, man.

Soldier 5 lies back. Leonard comes over to him.

LEONARD MITCHELL

How bad are you?

SOLDIER 5

(Strained)

I can still move.

LEONARD MITCHELL

We gotta move. More of those things will come.

SOLDIER 5

(Panting)

Alright, alright. Help me up.

Leonard goes to help him up. He screams in pain.

SOLDIER 5 (CONT’D)

(Wincing)

My side, my side, crap, that hurts.

LEONARD MITCHELL

(Struggling)

Come on. We gotta move.

SOLDIER 5

(Panting)

Okay... Here I go.

Leonard helps him up. He grunts. Leonard gets underneath his arm and they hurry out of the room.
