(James)
=I was curious about why they had stopped firing, but hey we did just riddle the diner with bullets from a pair of machine guns. Maybe that had something to do with it? Either way, I made my way to the double doors, standing off to the side of one and thankful for the fact that they opened inward. Sam stood opposite me at her own half of the doors=
"Okay, on three we open the doors. Ready?"

(Sam)
"Ready. One....two....three!"
=He and I opened the doors together, and moved inside. First thing we saw were the bodies. There were some Shepherds, ridden with bullet-holes and covered in blood, weapons on the ground or in their arms. And there were only five of them=

"James, I'm counting five. There should be more of them."

(James)
"Yeah....there should have been."
=This wasn't right, because Sam had a point. Where were the other Shepherds? My question was answered soon however, when I heard a noise from the kitchens, and as I turned to face it I saw through that tiny gap separating the diner from the kitchen, a man stand up with a shotgun=

"Down!"
=As I got to the floor, I heard the roar of the shotgun=

(Andrew)

=I hit the deck with Sarah, the shotgun opening up on us. My mind was screaming 'I TOLD YOU SO!' But right now, I didn't want to argue=

Son of a bitch...

=And then I hear a voice that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end=

Voice: "My my...look who's all grown up and all mature now."

=I look back to see Sarah's eyes wide and scared, her face drained of blood. Her body was absolutely still=

Abernathy: "And I do believe you have something that belongs to me. I'd like her back..."

=I then let out a yell=

COME ON OUT AND SHOW YOURSELF, YOU SADISTIC BASTARD!

Abernathy: "Isn't it obvious..."

=I then look up to the man with the shotgun=

Abernathy: "Now...I believe I have won..."

No...

=I unsheathe my knife and get up, cannoning in to the man, two years of pent up fury driving me. Sarah was just sitting there, her scared expression unchanged=

NOW YOU DIE!

=I start wrestling with him, my mind wholly focused on the man I swore vengeance upon=

Eve was scanning when something caught her eye. Zooming in, she saw Shepherds start piling out of the untouched trucks at the other end.
She centered her sights and took a breath.

"Lead your target. Adjust for wind. Aim for the chest to ensure a hit."

She exhaled and fired.

The lead Shepherd fell with a hole in his chest, screaming. Immediately two men went to drag him back.
Eve shot one in the shoulder and missed the other.
"Dammit." She grimaced. "Gotta be more careful."

(James)
=I didn't pay attention to what was being said by either the man with the shotgun or Andrew. Hell as far as I was concerned, he had it covered. What I did care about, were the other Shepherds who were starting to come out of the woodwork. I got to my knees, or at least one knee while my other leg was bent, and brought my P90 to bear, squeezing off bursts as they came at us. They actually had us in a bad spot: we couldn't have the bus use the guns on them without hitting us, and they had better cover. So I just did what I could, while more people from outside either came in through the doors or shot through the windows=

(Sam)
"Dammit!"
=Using my own shotgun, I pumped one round into a Shepherd, hitting them in the chest. For my trouble though.....a bullet nearly, nearly hit me, grazing me along my shoulder and leaving a stinging pain, blood pouring from the flesh wound=

Eve refocused, taking a breath. One shepherd was using a truck as cover; she dropped him with a head shot. She missed two more shots but managed to down three more Shepherds before reloading, stashing the clip away.
She took another breath, downing a big shepherd going to flank Cooper with an assault rifle.
"There is a lot of them."

"This is Lake, Bravo-team has permission to fire." I said, speaking into my radio as we watched the ensuing firefight.

"Understood, Lake."

With that, a single Sniper round was fired.
"Confirmed hit, we'll cover you from here as you move up,"

"Roger, Bravo."
I nodded to the man in front of me as we finished checking our weapons and began to move. We were approaching from the opposite side the other group were, so that we wouldn't have any unfortunate accidents.

As we approached, the shepherds came into view, thankfully unaware of us on their flank, and we moved into position.
"Weapons free, Open fire."

On my order, we began firing on the shepherds.

(Sarah)

=I lay there for a few moments, frozen in pure, utter, terror. Then, gunfire snapped me back into reality. I turned around and got up on one knee, returning fire as fast the gun would allow me to. Meanwhile, the sound of Andrew and Abernathy fighting was counter to the gunfire coming from the shepherds=

(Andrew)

=I heard the gunfire, but my focus was on only one man. Abernathy, however, chose to gloat a little bit=

Abernathy: "Well...it seems your friends are finished, killed off like..."

=I give him a hard upper cut with my bare fist=

Shut up...just shut up.

Abernathy: "I'm right though, aren't I? They fight the Lord's will...they cannot bea..."

=I slam his face into the metal sink, grabbing him by the collar and throwing him onto the ground hard=

They can be beaten...and you won't be alive to see it.

Abernathy: "Really...see what? The Lord's judgment come to pass..."

=He was spitting blood, but my face wasn't unscathed either. I looked like a boxer, to be frank=

No...the Shepherd's extermination. One man at a time.

=Abernathy let out something akin to a cackle, setting my hair on end=

Abernathy: "No...the Shepherds will not be exterminated. Not as long as..."

=I plant his body into a wall, my knife blade plunging deep into him, his mouth coughing up blood. I then feel a bullet from the gun battle outside graze my shoulder, and I bite back a curse. My focus was on him. His minions could wait for me=

No... your madness ends here.

=I plunge the blade in deeper=

This is for my mother, my father...

=I lean my face in close to his=

And for all the torment you caused to my family.

Abernathy: "So...th-i-is...i-is...ven-n-nge-ance...?"

=His voice was rattling at this point, blood spilling from his lips. His face looked almost unrecognizable after the beating I gave him. His left arm hung unnaturally, broken=

No...this isn't just revenge...

=I take the knife out, the blade dripping with blood. His body slumps to the ground, still stubbornly clinging to life. He stares up at me with the same soulless eyes that scared me as a child. I take out my magnum and aim it at his body, the man now unable to speak=

This. Is. Justice.

=I fire six shots into his body one at a time, my rage slowly vanishing. I then load one more round and fire into his head. I then holster my pistol and slowly walk away. The feeling of rage being replaced by...relief.=

It's all over...it's all over. He's gone...my parents' souls can live in peace...

=I unlimber my rifle and go to join the fight raging outside=

As the soldiers assaulted the flank, Eve picked off shepherds trying to get into the diner, trying to keep James, Sam, Andrew, and Sarah from being overrun

*Marcus*
=He saw more Shepherds go down from sniper fire, but he wasn't sure who was firing. Whoever they were though, he was thankful=

(James)
"Oh thanks a lot Andrew!"
=I yelled after him as he left me and Sam and his sister in the diner to fight more Shepherds. Don't get me wrong, we were doing fine.....but it was the principal of the thing dammit=

"Sam, push them back!"
=Even as I yelled I continued firing, taking Shepherds down. There weren't that many left though, at least in here. I had enough room that I stood up and began moving over the bodies, moving to the door of the kitchen. That was when I saw a small cylinder tossed from the kitchen, and it looked a lot like a grenade=

"Fuck! Grenade!"
=That was the last thing I said before it exploded. But by some small mercy, it wasn't a typical grenade; there was no shrapnel, no fiery explosion. Just blinding light and deafening sound that left my head spinning and vision blurry. But then I felt a pair of strong, powerful hands on me, dragging me to the kitchen and then flinging me to the stove. That was when my vision began to clear a little, and I saw my brother's face=

(Pariah)
"Couldn't leave well enough alone, could you?"
=He punched, hard, at Jame's side, causing him to grunt in pain as the fist hit against his ribs=

"Had to be the little hero, didn't you?
=Another punch, this time to the face. Then his hands came down over James' neck, as he pinned him against the surface of the stove=

(James)
=Iron bands were clamped over my throat, and they burned. My throat burned as I gasped for air struggling to breathe even as he choked me. My hands flailed around, trying first to get the hands off me. Then I went for his eyes, my thumbs trying to gouge them out but he leaned back enough that they were out of reach. That was when they began to drop, as my vision started to go black. But in one final act, either of desperation or simply to spite him, I reached for the knife at my hip, took it out, and slashed at his face. My thumbs may not have reached his eyes......but the blade of my knife certainly managed to slash its way through his cheeks. His left cheek was nicked a little, but his right was cut wide open, and as he screamed in pain, hands leaving my neck, I saw blood, a lot of it, and his cheek wasn't just cut open like a line across the skin. It was cut in half, to the point there was a new gap=

(Pariah)
=It was painful, but more than that it was surprising. He never expected his brother to do that to him=
"Oww.....well well well....looks like little Jamie has some balls at last."

(James)
=I stared daggers at him, and got to my feet. He tried to smile, despite the obvious wound, and I had the knife ready in my fist, point down. I moved first, trying to stab him, but even with one hand holding onto his cheek, he managed to deflect my blow. Then I aimed another swipe for his bad side, starting with a feint to his left but then changing targets at the last second, and brought my fist down, the blade going tip first, into his shoulder. That was when he screamed in pain=

(Pariah)
"Ahhhhhhh!"
=That was new. First time in a long time he had ever been hurt before like this. But as James stood there, a vicious look on his face, Pariah grinned a little, eyes on his little brother=

"What do you know.....not so weak after all."
=Then he headbutted James, and it knocked him back a little, enough that Pariah, even with the knife firmly in his shoulder, managed to run, slipping out the back as he ran for one of the cars behind the diner=

(Andrew)

= I headed outside, the recent events still on my mind. I went and returned a bit of gunfire back at the shepherds=

So...anything I miss?

=I act like nothing happened, but I felt Sarah's gaze start to bore into me=

Eve picked off two more shepherds, a grand total of ten falling to her.
"Where are you Sam?/ she asked. "Please be ok."

(James)
=When the adrenaline wore off, I stood in the kitchen, rubbing my throat as the burning wore off. That was going to leave a bruise, I just knew it. Outside I could still hear gunfire, so the fight wasn't done yet. I looked for my gun, and realized I dropped it out in the diner, so I headed out of the kitchen. Sam and a few other people were there, just now standing up=
"Sam, you okay?"

(Sam)
"Yeah I'm fine. What happened?"

(James)
"Family reunion."

=Outside, behind the diner and away from prying eyes, the Pariah grabbed one of the vehicles, a pick-up, that the Shepherds used. He then began driving away from the chaos, retreating. The battle here was lost, but he was not about to lose the war=

Eve potshotted the pickup but had a horrible angle, managed to wing a tail light. She resumed scanning. The assault force had the upper hand. Picking off two more, she noticed another van, a UPS truck to the side.
"Cattle near the back..." she climbed down and sprinted for her dirtbike. Covering the distance in a minute, thankful she kept the bike close. Revving it up, Eve started slow, but once she was through the forest, she burned rubber out towards the UPS truck. A bulled or two pinged on the frame but she made it.

Climbing off, she pulled the doors open and found what she was afraid of. The five hostages were tied to the celing, naked. From stains below, they rarely got to be let out for restroom breaks and from scabs and bruises, it was clear that they were beaten and tortured...besides the rape.
She began to cut them down, helping them sit and, after five minutes, was rubbing shoulders, trying to get feeling to them.
"Hey. Hey. C'mon, move to one side." She listened to the gunfire rage, the hopped out and pulled her bike into the truck, lying it on one side. She then broke open two cars, stealing a blanket and a tarp.
The girls were in a state of hunger, thirst, exhaustion, all of it. She passed her water and food around, helping some drink before closing and latching the door.
"I'm Eve. I'm with James. His daughter." She hurried to the driver seat. Good. Stupid shepherds.
Turning the key, she put it in gear and drove it to the edge of the slightly raised forest, stopping. She set the rifle up, using the seat, and again set her sights on the Shepherds. No. It wasn't going to work...

Using a tree, Eve got on top of the truck and set the blanket out, going prone.

Elapsed time: ten minutes.

(James)
=The fight was coming to a close. The last of the Shepherds were either killed.....or they surrendered, which was a first. Still, it looked to be a victory, which was good=
"Sound off! Casualties?"

*Marcus*
"No dead, just some wounded that need to get back now."
=As he turned around, he saw the truck over by the trees, and could have sworn he saw a figure on top=

"Who the hell is that?"

(James)
=I looked to where he was pointing, and saw the truck. Someone had a pair of binoculars, which they looked through before handing to me. Staring through them, I saw something that nearly killed me=
"Eve...."

=And then like a lunatic, I began running for my daughter=

(Sam)
"Wait, what's going on? James!"
=I just stood there as he ran=

Eve saw James running.
"I am so dead." Jumping down, she climbed in and gunned the engine, heading into the woods in a parrallel course to the main highway and Owensboro.

"Daddy is going to kill me." She repeated. "So is Sam...there goes being ti - given my reward..." she sighed. "Least they are safe."

(James)
=I saw the truck driving away, and I screamed=
"EVE!!! DAMMIT GET BACK HERE!!!"

=But I wasn't going to be able to catch her on foot, so I just stopped. Then I turned around and headed back for the group. Sam was waiting, a curious look on her face, but I never gave her an answer for what happened. I just waited in the bus as we got our wounded taken care of, either patching them up or laying them down in the bus for transport, got gas and supplies recovered from the Shepherds, and started to head back to town. I kept everything I was feeling under lock and key, even though I felt like I was going to explode=

Eve made good time getting to the highway. She floored it, checking behind her.
"Hey. You all ok?"
One nodded as two others clung to each other, crying. "Thank you."
"Its what I had to do. For what the..." she sighed. "You're welcome...?"
"Avery...I'm Avery." She smiled weakly. "If I could get up I'd kiss you."
"I'd request you don't. My girlfriend has a shotgun."

Some weak laughter came, and Eve felt better.

As she approached the gates, she left her weapons and hat on the dashboard, she stepped outside, hands up. "I'm Eve Martin, James' daughter. My mother Hibiki is in the town and can vouch for me. I have five women who need medical attention, food, and clothing."

*Guard*
"Yeah we remember you kiddo. Frank, check the story!"
=The gate opened enough for someone to walk out=

"Frank there is just going to have a look, so you open the doors for him!"

(James)
=When we were good to go, the caravan started moving, heading back to town. And I thought in my head of how the scene between me and Eve would play out=

Hands up, Eve walked to the back with Frank and opened the doors.
"Avery? Its me and a guard from the lockdown town." She said, again keeping her hands in view. No need to make them nervous.

(Andrew)

=I watch as some of the Shepherds gave up, the gunfire dying down. Sarah looks at me with sort of wide eyes as we both got up, meeting up with the rest of the group. I can't say it wasn't partly due to the face...=

(Sarah)

Did...did you...kill him?

=My voice was fearful...his voice constantly ringing in my ears=

(Andrew)

=I look at my bloody knife, nodding=

Yeah...he's dead. Very, very dead.

=Sarah wore a relieved expression on her face. A few minutes later, we headed out with the rest of the caravan, playing out the fight in my head as the caravan trundled back to town. That, and explain the bruising to Mira=

=When Frank saw the women, he immediately came back into view and yelled for help=

*Frank*
"Dammit, get some help! We've got some women in need of help here!"
=The gates opened up, and Eve was signaled to get back in the truck and start driving=

(James)
=I wasn't sure how close we were. Frankly I didn't care, as I'd only take notice of the world when we came to a stop=

Eve closed the doors and hopped in, driving through. She follow d directions to the town clinic before turning the motoroff and climbing out as people rushed out to help the women.

Eve pulled her bike out and drove home, where she ran upstairs and hid in Hibiki's closet.
"Daddy saw me." Was all she said.

Hibiki stripped to her underwear. "That hopefully can be fixed."

=We got back, finally. When the bus came to a stop, I could see through the window that the truck Eve took was parked by the clinic, and it was already being unloaded of.....women? So, that was what happened. But it didn't matter, I was just too.....everything. Getting out and leaving Sam in the dust, I headed for our house, opening the door and climbing the steps=
"Eve?"

=I called for her, but no response. Entering her room, I found no one. When I got to my room, I saw Hibiki in her underwear, but my gaze just flew over and past her without a care=
"Where is she?"

Hibiki blinked. "Who? Eve? She went out for a walk." She crawled to the edge of the bed. "You won? Everything is ok?"

=I took one brief look at James, looking like he was on the warpath. I got up with Sarah and headed for the house=

Say nothing about what happened...not yet.

=Sarah nodded, mostly out of old fears. We walked up to the house, opening up the door and climbing the steps to the house. I just hope Mira wouldn't bawl me out like last time I came banged up=

Hey...we're back. You up yet?

Hibiki pointed to the closet...where Eve was shaking from head to toe.
She was dead.

Oh so dead.

Mira was on the couch. She jumped up and hugged Andrew and Sarah. "Thank God..you both are ok."

=Nodding, I walked over to the closet and opened the doors. There she stood, clearly afraid, when in all honesty no one was more afraid than me. Afraid because I knew that for her to get that truck she had to have put herself in harms way while injured. Afraid because I nearly died today, and thought I'd never get to see my family again. So without saying a thing, I got down on my knees and pulled her into a crushing hug, and that was when I started to cry=
"Goddammit Eve.....don't ever scare me like that again dammit."

Mentally...Sarah's a bit out of it.

Eve thought he was going to yell. He thought he was going to shake her, maybe even hit her.

But when he hugged her close, she started to cry.
"I couldn't let you two go alone. I couldn't let you fight alone."

Mira let go and kissed Sarah with a deep, passionate kiss.

=I back off slightly, not entirely surprised by the gesture. Sarah needed some time, and so did I. For now, I let those two go at it.=

(Sarah)

=I blink slightly, but then relax into the kiss, embracing Mira slightly as I did so=

You have no idea how right you are, Andrew...

Eve sniffed.
"And I want you to be safe too. That's why I stopped the ambush and saved the hostages."

Mira embraced her back, hoping she felt better.

"Why do you think I stayed far away, and used a rifle daddy? I did what I could while staying far from danger." Eve responded.

Hibiki sat there almost naked, watching.

"Then trust me next time. Tell me these things so I don't get blindsided and have a heart attack Eve. I love you because you're my daughter, to hell with blood or not. So can you trust me as your father?"

Eve nodded.
"Yes daddy." She said softly. She hugged him. "Um...I...need to go tell Sam. If I don't come back...I love you."

Thanks...I needed that, Mira.

I don't have to have those nightmares anymore. Not after what Andrew and you did for me today.

Hibiki knelt behind James and hugged him.

Eve went downstairs and opened the door after finding Sam not upstairs.
"Oh." She looked up. "Uh....Sam..." she fidgeted, arms behind her back. "...I was the sniper, back at the truck stop, and I was driving the UPS truck. Please don't kill me."

Mira smiled. "Good..."

=I wasn't sobbing, but I was still crying a little, tears running down my face and falling onto Hibiki's arms. I raised a hand, letting it rest on her arm while my head hung low=
"Why do I feel like I'm not cut out for this whole father business?"

"...I don't know Sam...but...in my defense...I decided to go long instead of sneak onto the bus. Or under it. And mommy gave me the rifle." Eve said.

Hibiki laughed. "James. You are a great father. I couldn't have asked for a better father for Eve. But she is different. And you have to respect that." She kissed his neck. "You are the best father."

=And I won't lie, it felt good as she kissed my neck. It was almost enough to make me realize she was down to her underwear, hugging me=

(Sam)
"Still, you told me that you were going to stay. Then you go back on that, and sneak off to a fight where bullets are flying everywhere. What would have happened if you got shot Eve? Imagine how that would have affected your mom, or your dad. Or me."

"That is why I was far from battle. Hiding out and using a rifle. And I managed to save the hostages without wasting time. So for once, can't you all say good job instead of condemning my impulsiveness?"
She stomped her foot, giving up."fine. Sorry. Wont happen again."

She started to stomp off.

=I grabbed her wrist before she got too far, and clung on as an anchor=
"Eve, did I say I didn't think you did a good job? No. But you don't see how it upsets us, frustrates us, when you do something like this without telling us. You told your mom sure, but she was sitting this battle out. You didn't tell me, you didn't tell your father, and when we find out, it's not from you. We find out because Marcus see's something and we have to look through a set of binoculars, and get the biggest surprise of our lives."

=Pulling her towards me, I looked her in the eyes=
"Don't you see what I'm saying Eve? We trust you with our lives, our friendship.....our love. And you surprise us like this when you told us something else? Can't you see that we're not angry. We're hurt."

Yeah...I did something alright.

=I gave a sigh=

I killed the man who tormented her...it was why she was out of it. She heard and saw him for the first time since leaving them.

Eve's eyes began to water.
"You wouldn't have let me go my way. You would have made me do something mostly meaningless." She didn't try and escape. "You ever think it hurts me whenever I am left out due to my age, or a month old injury? I can't use a bow, but a rifle is no problem. But look me in the eye and tell me you'll let me go with you. That you won't leave me behind again."

Mira hugged Andrew. "I love you both so much."
