    DBRONZEThen she cant be far. I say lether alone for a bit.

    SSIERPI suppose I can relax for alittle while.

    DBRONZE(inclines his head tothe crowd)

    Id like to stay and talk butIve got me an audience.

    Dbronze gets up from his stool almost bumping into TUVAL.

    TUVALHave you seen Trovenus? Hes notanswering his comm device and noone seems to have seen him.

    General Nemens seems to take a moment to absorb whats beensaid.

    NEMENSYou three deserve a medal orcommendation for courage when weget back to civilization.

    SARA(bitter laugh)

    NEMENSSara, courage has never beenabout a lack of fear but oftaking action in spite of it.

    Tuval and Dbronze shelter behind the A.T.V as fire rainsdown on them. Each blast hitting the vehicle with a

    metallic PING.

    Dbronze eyes the darkened crevices further afield. Hegrimaces as he spots a flash of red and black.

    DBRONZEFressin drakans.

    DBRONZEI know what Im fressin doin.

    His eyes narrow and the violent throes of the cavern roofSPREAD to the walls, as the intensity rises.

    Drakan SCREAMS reverberate as Dbronze closes his fist,causing the roof and walls to crumble. The dislodged rubbleentirely seals off that part of the tunnel.

    Tuval scrutinizes the tunnel collapse, impressed.

    DBRONZE (CONTD)Lets move before any more showup.
