A very, very short chapter. Hope you like it though. Please review if you do
Chapter 6: Autopsy
Damien kicked the body of the dead rodian, a motion meaning for Nemen Dao to turn over the corpse. A dark burn mark showed on his torso, straight through his yellow shirt. The hole had smoldering fringes, and bits of ash floated through the air, riding on the slight breeze. His green skin had turned brown, and still smoked. Two pistols laid in his hands, fingers still curled around the grips as though he was fighting off death. A finger was wrapped around each trigger, where only the slightest pressure would cause the blaster to erupt.
The rodianís eyes still retained the foggy haze, only now they had a glassy coating. Any sign of emotion was barren, and the lifeless corpse stared up at the sky. His vest pockets had spilled their contents upon crumbling to the ground-spice and death sticks littered the plain.
A manís bloody face looked over the remains of a battle. Lifeless forms lay here and there, but the perpetrators didnít lie among them. Dark shapes outlined the setting sun, some blocked by the tall grass, creating indents in the very land that held them. Armor covered the bodies, giving the sun more place for its rays to bounce-down onto the amour, and back into the sun itself.
They were mercenaries, Mandalorian armor gleaming. None of the armor was complete, a glove of helmet missing, or a belt with ammo. A circle had burned itself onto the armor of six, while others appeared unscathed.
His blood made a trail behind him, falling onto the grass like rain, steady and wet. Dots of crimson, following their master. Small patterns arose on the dead, small red marks-from the man who walked. The man who bled. The man who finally collapsed, compelled by some unknown force to join those he walked over. His body, finally washed in red. A final autopsy would be done in the morning.
STATEMENT: I'm just a simple assassin...I mean bodyguard, master. You have nothing to fear.
