All five dealers trudged out of the golden cathedral in formation, guns raised with eager anticipation. General Tsao was on point, Five broke formation and walked ahead of Tsao. The halls of the church began to get warm as flames crawled up the walls and licked the ceiling. Five began walking faster, almost into a jog, “God damnit Five, get your ass back here,” Shouted Tsao over the Comm. Link. But five didn’t head his command. Tsao lifted his fist and then dropped his fingers, giving Squanjack permission to test his experimental weapon. Squanjack hoisted his large weapon up with out missing a step and took the safety off.
The massive sonic weapon charged to life with a whining charge.
Five froze. . . she knew what that weapon was capable of, and waited for the squad to catch up. It was better to take orders from the over cautious Tsao than to have her brain melt out of her ears. Five regained formation and continued down the increasingly hot hallway.
“They’re close,” said Tsao as they turned the corner. They found themselves back in the church atrium with 20 of the undead.

All guns picked a target, Tsao knelt down and opened fire, signaling everyone else to fire at will. Beluga shot bursts into the flaming crowd, as six took single shots into the hearts of his targets. Squanjack charged up his sonic cannon, to finally test out its capabilities on the undead masses.
Five stood in formation, with her head cocked to the side, but didn’t raise her assault rifle to fire. She watched as the flaming zombies inched closer and closer the them as everyone riddled their torsos with bullets, she began to laugh.
Six shot an undead right in the the heart, but it wasn’t phased and continued to walk forward. Five watched as six’s face, for the first time in their history together, actually showed a crack of a emotion, a crack of disbelief; Six was scared. Five laughed harder.
Squanjack fired his sonic cannon into the crowd of flaming zombies the concentrated beam of sound hit the chest of one of the walking corpses and shoot it to the bone, but it’s head didn’t explode like it did in the trial runs. The undead crept closer.
Fives eyes widened as her laughter turned into hysteria.
The Dealers of Deaths Com.Link was filled with the maniacal laughter of Five, who still hadn’t taken a single shot.
The Death Dealers were trained just like every other branch of the military, they were trained to shoot for the largest part of the body, the torso. But that proved to be ineffective against the undead. Tsao ordered a cease fire, lunged at Five and struck her across the face with the butt of his assault rifle. “I’ve been waiting to do that forever!”
Five’s head was cocked to the side as she stared at the floor. She dropped her assault rifle to the floor and the zombies loomed ever closer. She swept her pistol out of it’s holster and took aim on Tsao with out making eye contact, then she swept the gun towards the hoard and took one shot and dropped a zombie to the ground dead.
<BLAM BLAM BLAM>
Three more zombies fell the floor lifelessly. With her off hand she reached up to her mask and threw it to the floor, her dirty blonde hair fell across her face laden with sweat, her eyes danced with the reflected flames from the room, she looked at Tsao with a maniacal grin and said “The head” <BLAM BLAM> two more zombies fell, “aim for the head”
The group of zombies was almost on top of them as Tsao barked the command “FIRE AT WILL! ONLY AIM AT THEIR HEAD!” Every member of the Dealers opened fire at eye level mowing down the flaming zombies for good. “this building has been compromised, we need to move out.” Tsao commanded.
“But was about the live ones down behind the door?” Whined Five.
“I am TIRED of your back talk, I am your superior! You will move out NOW, and put your damned mask back on!”
Five picked up her black mask and slid it over her head, cover her wild eyes and the scar that ran from the left side of her mouth up towards her ear like a mischievous grin.
The Death Dealers walked in formation towards the flame laden entry way. Emerging from the flames that lined the entrance the Dealers were faced with what appeared to be the greater, reanimated, populous of the Greater Downtown Philadelphia residence. The tanks firing had ceased. In fact they couldn’t even see the tank under the sea of undead corpses. Somehow all the gunfire in the church didn’t alert the undead of the dealers’ position, the simultaneous tank fire from the street must have masked their presence.
This is General Tsao of foot squad Death Dealers. Abrams 3, do you copy?
< there was no response, General Tsao tried again>
This time he spoke louder. “Abrams 3 this is General Tsao of the foot squad Death Dealers, Do you copy?” A few zombies noticed his voice and parted the sea and broke off in his direction.
“. . . sir . . .”
“ABRAMS 3 DO YOU COPY?”
“. .. SIR”
“Not now Beluga!”
Clearing his throat, “We’ve got company.”
General Tsao raises his head to see the river of undead had redirected their flow and were headed right for him and his squad. “SHIT, FALL BACK!”
Through the dirty eye panels in the gas mask Five’s eyes looked morbidly gleeful, she followed behind the squad, walking with her rifle over her shoulder.
RATTATTAT AT TAT!
The squad opened fire launching bullets around Five who continued to walk calmly.
Squankjack fired his sonic cannon one more time, with a similarly displeasing result. He drops the massivly useless cannon to the floor and unsolders the energy pack from his back. Hoisting it over his head he hurls it into the hoard and wips his pistol off his thigh and takes aim on the pack inside the hoard. “GET DOWN!” He yelled and he opened fire.
<BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM>
His bullets plow into the energy pack causing an electrical discharge at first.
