Amongst My Enemies
Kervak held the damaged detonator tightly. It wasn't completely inoperative but it was messed up enough to keep it from sending a long range signal. That meant that whoever detonated it would have to remain.
Looking at the refugees as that passed, Kervak saw mothers with their children. A few badly wounded Commonwealth troopers were being carried. If the Grakons got a hold of them they wouldn't stand a chance.
Knowing what had to be done Kervak worked her way to the rear of the group as the hurried across the high bridge. Green lasers sparked at the heels of screaming children.
Kervak remembered how much her human faster parents had given her and it was time to give back. This was the best opportunity for her to repay them for their kindness to her.
She found a small hiding place and crouched down holding the detonator in both hands.
The last of the people left the bridge and Grakons began passing Kervak quickly, their tanks rattling the structure. With a sigh Kervak pressed the button.
The last thing she remembered was a bright flash and what seemed to be a driving wind blowing her as the ground gateway beneath the unsuspecting Grakons.
The entire Grakon unite sank to the bottom of the deep mountain river Kervak along with them.
It was a long time before the people realized that she wasn't with them. It was then they discovered how heroic the lone Gurk mercenary was. She was willing to give her all for them and that is what she did.
This is for a contest that I entered somewhere else online. The theme was "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
This is a contest entry and not Super Strike 10 Canon! Kervak is still alive in the story.
