'The Rookie'


Lieutenant Leighman sat on a piece of sandbags nearby,adjusting,maybe toying with his L85.
‘’Guys,this is a mission that will give all of us a promotion. Don’t fuck this one up. I know many of you are just rookies,but,this is the mission we prove ourselves. Allright?’’
None of us said a word.
‘’Good. Let’s go.’’
Grabbing the side of the helicopter,I threw Thomas my L85,as I could not get up on the chopper without using both of my hands. He was clumsy,but he grabbed it in the air quickly.
‘’C’mon Rookie,you are going to get left behind.’’ Thomas said.
‘’But Leigh did not get on the chopper.’’
‘’Listen to me,just hop on.’’
He was right,there was no time to stick around. Grabbing the side of the chair,I pulled myself up to the helicopter. Lieutenant Leighman hopped on the chopper quickly,I could do nothing but to look at him weirdly.
‘’What are you staring at,Rookie?’’ He said with a harsh voice. It was sure he was pissed,or he was just feeling anxious.
‘’Sir,what is our mission exactly?’’ I asked.
‘’Well,we are going to a piece of heaven called Zone. You probably know what happened back in 1986.’’
‘’Exactly Rookie. There has been a second explosion,and our curious chairman wants us to investigate the place. There have been rumors of mutants and other stuff worth money.’’
Sighing,I just waited for the chopper to go on. The voice of my mates irritated me as I fell into sleep.
‘’Rookie,wake up.’’ Leighman pushed my shoulder,trying to wake me up as I looked around. ‘’We are oscar mike. Hop out,team!’’
I pushed myself out of the chopper,and readied my rifle as if we were going up close and personal. ‘’Okay guys,we are up here,nearby the place where the townsfolk call ‘Backwater.’ Rookie,you are with me. Joker,Psycho,Ripper,you look there.’’
Lieutenant Leighman pointed north with his left finger,as I looked around. We started to walk towards a small copse.
‘’Look out! Guards!’’
As Lieutenant Leighman pulled me to the ground as if he was a lion who grabbed it’s prey,I shouted.
‘’Stop shouting Rookie!’’ He said to me quietly.
‘’We will take them out on my mark. Allright?’’ Leighman said.
I nodded. Grabbing my L85,I lied on the ground. ‘’Sir,they seem friendlies. Should I hail them?’’
‘’Stop saying stupid things Rookie,are you outta your goddamn mind?’’
I looked down the scope as I took the mod to semi-automatic.






I held my breath slowly,aiming towards the one on the left,who was carrying a glowing red thing on his hands,and the other,who had another glowing thing,which was,weirdly,whitish blue.

I fired my gun,and I missed. ‘’FUCK!’’ I thought,as he started to run away. I looked up to Leighman,who was rather interested getting the thing. He fired two shots,and the guy fell. I got up,looking around. ‘’Sir,we lost one.’’
‘’Don’t worry Rookie.’’
I looked up to the sillhouette of the guy as I saw him getting dragged on the floor,starting to float,and get ripped apart into tiny pieces of meat and,starting streams of flame nearby. It was like watching a chicken getting itself into a microwave,and then starting it.
‘’What the fuck was that?’’ I shouted,and looked up to Leighman,who was looking emotionless. I could hear voices of his bones,cracking and breaking. Getting my balaclava off,I threw up nearby. ‘’What the fuck is this place?’’ I asked to Leighman. ‘’Welcome to The Zone,stalker. Been here before,two years ago. Hardly got out,hardly got myself forgiven to the government.’’
‘’Sir,let’s go to the chopper,it was our Extraction Point.’’
Walking towards the chopper,I realized that Lieutenant Leighman was planning something. ‘’Sir,where is the chopper?’’
He looked in shock.
‘’There is smoke coming out! Run! It may have been shot!’’
I started sprinting,dropping my gun in the process. Psycho and Ripper was turned into swiss cheese by unknown assailants,and Joker was decapitated. Our helicopter was in ruins,burning and exploding.
After a long time of shock,Leighman ripped the silence.

‘’Rookie,I guess we are in The Zone again. Good luck,we are on our own.’’
‘’Sir,where are we going?’’
‘’I don’t know! I don’t know this place! I was in Cordon and Garbage before,hell,I even entered CNPP. Don’t ask.’’
I gasped.
‘’CNPP? Kidding me.’’
‘’No kidding.’’ He replied.

Chapter 1

‘’Sir,when will we find to rest?’’ Lieutenant Leighman turned to me,disposed his cigarette,and looked into my eyes. He could see that I was tired as hell,not a sleepwalker,but a very tired guy.
‘’Rookie,my stupid rookie. There is no ‘Place to Rest’ in The Zone. Well,technically speaking,there are,but,you want somewhere safe. And here,the safest place is a derelict ship,or a Bar,protected by Military Wannabes. Got it?’’
I nodded.
‘’Good,I knew you would understand.’’
Leighman added: ‘’Rookie,I have to say,we are probably no longer in that Merc group. From now on,you can call me ‘Bug,’ I know that sounds weird,but it is my nickname.’’
I nodded,but I was surprised. ‘’Bug? What the hell is that?’’ I thought. I was probably right. Who the fuck would use ‘Bug’ as a nickname anyway?
‘’Sir,are we-‘’
Leighman stopped me. ‘’A meat chunk,hold on.’’ He slowly walked towards a glowing thing,grabbed a bullet from his pack,and threw it towards it. The bullet burned in the air and got thrown towards a random location.
‘’What is that sir?’’ I asked,surprised.
‘’I think it is a whirli-‘’
Suddenly,’Bug’ fell,and started getting dragged towards the thing. ‘’ROOKIE!’’ He shouted,trying to grab something,like a tree. I looked towards Leighman.
‘’ROOKIE!’’ He shouted for the last time.
I jumped,trying to grab his arm. I flew through the air,and landed on his arm. I felt a painful force,dragging me towards the ‘anomaly.’
‘’AARRGHH!’’ I shouted,trying to let go. Leighman grabbed on to my leg,kind of using me as a ‘way out.’
‘’Sir,let me go! We are fucked in every way!’’ I shouted. He was going to die,and,who would want to die trying to save a guy who will get killed %100?
‘’No Rookie! NO!’’ He shouted. I felt floating,and I realized the piece of grass I was holding was ripped. The anomaly pulled me towards itself,and Leighman suddenly threw a rock towards the anomaly. It discharged,throwing me. I felt good,but my leg was probably in the shape of a sauerkraut.
‘’Rookie? Are you okay?’’ Leighman asked. ‘’My leg... my fucking leg...’’ I said to him.
‘’It’s in good shape.’’
He dragged me away from the anomaly. ‘’We can get a good artifact outta that thing. We’ll try again next time,okay?’’
‘’Sir,we will get killed if we try again!’’
‘’No we won’t. I am familiar to this kind of anomalies.’’ He replied. ‘’Sir,you are out of your mind! That thing nearly got you killed!’’ I replied,in a harsh voice. Leighman got up,and walked towards the anomaly again,with a weird detector.
‘’Okay,so,Rookie,hold on here.’’ He said to me,and he walked towards it. Leighman grabbed a rock,and threw it towards the anomaly. Ironically,the stone was thrown back to Leighman’s head,and he fell. ‘’SIR! SIR! ARE YOU OKAY?’’ I shouted,trying to get a response. No response came. I neared him,looking to his wounds. ‘’What are you doing Rookie?’’ He asked. ‘’You were nearly killed by that thing.’’ I said,trying to negotiate him.
‘’Don’t worry.’’ He said,and he got up. Running towards the artifact,he grabbed it,and jumped away. ‘’You see now,Rookie? I got it.’’
He gave me the thing,which was glowing red. ‘’Okay,whatever. Let’s go.’’ We walked towards the nearby settlement. The place was abandoned,and we entered into a hole,which was actually a trapdoor.
We were nearby a fire anomaly now,Leighman was telling me about of the artifact inside it. Hell,he even said that you would not get tired anymore.
‘’I will get it,and we will share the money.’’ He said.
‘’Okay then,can you get it sir?’’ I asked to him. He nodded,and ran towards the anomaly. It was inside a small opening. ‘’Sir,be careful!’’ I shouted,and I walked towards him. I grabbed my pistol,and checked the area. ‘’Rookie! Come here!’’
I ran towards the opening. There were some dead bodies around.
‘’Zombies.’’ He said.
‘’Zombies? What the-‘’
He stopped me abruptly. Grabbing a piece of junk from the ground,he threw it towards the ‘anomaly.’
A pillar of fire ignited things nearby,and some nearby vines started to burn. ‘’Sir,we better get out!’’ I shouted,and ran towards the exit.
‘’Hold on! Let me get it!’’ He shouted,and entered the now-burning hole. I stopped,looking inside the hole. I could see ‘Bug’ running. I closed my eyes as I heard an explosion.
‘’SIR!’’ I ran inside the hole,and looked over to Bug’s sillhouette. ‘’Roo...Rookie...’’
‘’Yes sir?’’
‘’ROOKIE!’’ He shouted,as he neared. His arm was burnt,he was still burning,and he was impaled with a metal stick.
‘’Kill me,Rookie!’’ He shouted.
‘’No!’’ I replied.
He started to struggle with me,trying to take my pistol. ‘’Sir,you don’t need to kill yourself!’’ I said,as I realized his left arm was dismembered.
I pushed him away,and aimed towards him in all the carnage. His moans irritated me.
I fired all of my bullets inside his head,and I made a run for it,wowing never to return...

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Walking to nowhere,mourning the fresh death of Leighman,I muttered myself some stupid things. ‘’Why did he die? What if I die?’’ Were some of the questions. Leighman was a good man,he generally helped me in the training days. ‘’Bloody hell.’’ I thought. Sitting on a nearby rock,watching the hole generate smog,I sighed.
‘’He gave me some of his cigarettes.’’ I thought to myself,and opened my ‘extra stuff’ pack on my pants. Inside were some cigarettes,a pen and some papers,and a bullet. ‘’Why the fuck did I carry a bullet?’’ I thought to myself,and I grabbed a cigarette,lighting it. I had to get somewhere fast,and knowing I could get in a fight,I started to check my armor. I checked my gloves. They were exact compatibles of my green armor,they were black,and they could protect my fingers from little burns or scratches. Looking to my chestplate,which Leighman called ‘Berill,’something I never understood,I placed my fingers against it and I scratched it a bit. I was not shot,but the place hurt like hell. It was good for firefights,it saved my arse before. I pushed my bag away from my shoulders and I started checking what should I use for ‘missions,’something that I was in. There was a PDA placed diagonally,some magazines that were not for my gun at all.
‘’Enough equipment check.’’ I muttered to myself,and I got up,grabbing my L85.
Walking towards a ship that was probably 4000 meters away,I opened my PDA.

‘’Meet Beard’’ was the only task,as I could not do anything else,my whole team was fucked up and killed in an accident.
‘’Beard? What kind of name is that?’’ I thought to myself,as I detected two stalkers. They were not hostile,from what I could tell. Slowly nearing them,I could hear their conversation from above,the guys did not detect me. I would call this ‘stupidness’ as being in a place where ‘every step can be your death’ being careless would get you into a mutant hole. The duo seemed like friends,although the guy in the white jacket seemed...shady,and the other in ‘armor’ seemed like a stupid ‘trigger-happy’ maniac. They started talking,giving me the time to go nearby,talk and learn something,or shoot them if I had to.
‘’Hey,dude,you have a PDA?’’
‘’Yeah man,why did you ask?’’
‘’I feel like we are being watched,and I can’t learn who the fuck is that guy ‘cuz my PDA got broken.’’
The ‘stupid’ stopped,and opened his pocket. ‘’Okay,I found it.’’
He handed the PDA towards the shady one,and the guy started looking in the PDA. ‘’Stepan! BEHIND US!’’ He shouted,and turned towards me. They were aware of me,so I was probably fucked. ‘’What do you want?’’ I said to them,slowly,and started getting my hand towards my holster. They were rookies,from what I could tell,so they did not realize I was going for my gun.

‘’Tolik? What should I do? Should we shoot him?’’ The maniac with the name ‘Stepan’ said to ‘Tolik’ who was just aiming towards me with his gun and walking towards me. He grabbed my shoulder,checking me.
‘’Hold on.’’ Tolik muttered,and made a move with his arm,probably telling ‘Stepan’ to stop. ‘’No need to get trouble. Just shoot-‘’
I fired my M9 into his abdomen,thankfully he was near me. He fell on the ground,splattering the stones with blood. The other suddenly grabbed his AK. I was actually shocked,as he was more of a ‘quickdraw’ than I am. I did not know what he was using,I was not into AK shit,although I was going to learn what was that soon. I threw myself towards left,and I fired some blind shots. They missed,and he ran towards a sturdy albeit ruined truck. He took cover behind it,and I lied in the tall grass. I fired three shots,all of them missed,whizzing through the air and hitting the truck. He seemed to do something near his pocket. I lied on the ground,waiting him. He grabbed a grenade,and threw it nearby my direction.
‘’OH FUCK!’’I shouted,the grenade did not land near me,but I knew a trick to do.
‘’MY ARM! MY FUCKING ARM!’’ I shouted,hoping to give the effect of ‘dismembered arm.’
He looked towards my direction,and got out.
‘’What did you think,stalker? Did you think Stepan was stupid?’’ He did not know that I was fine,that was obvious.
‘’Yes.’’ I thought to myself. The idiot made a mistake by leaving his cover. Grabbing my L85,I readied it and looked towards him. He raised his hands,probably indicating surrender in an old-fashioned way. He then kneeled slowly.

‘’So,you surrender?’’ I asked,pointing my gun towards his head. He was sweating like hell,that was obvious.
‘’YES! I beg you,don’t kill me!’’ He shouted,as I grabbed his shoulder. ‘’You are not coming with me.’’
He gulped,and closed his eyes. I grabbed my pistol,and slowly raised it towards his head. He opened his eyes,just as I expected.
‘’Are you going to’’
I nodded.
He started praying,and I slowly cocked the hammer.
‘’NO! NO-‘’
I stopped,and I sighed. This guy was probably a bandit,although. I had to do it,he would have been taking my money from my deadbeat corpse right now. I looked over to him.
‘’Look at me. I think you can get me to places,yes?’’
He nodded,his eyes still shining with the fear of a six year old child. ‘’Good. To Skadovsk.’’ I replied.
I got him on his feet,and slowly pushed him. ‘’You are on the front.’’ I muttered,and I started walking,following him. He was walking like a complete coward,bolt on hand,and always the other hand near his knife. Leighman,may he rest in peace,if he can,told me once that you had to hold one of them only. I reminded why I said ‘’Why?’’ in a stupid fashion. I remember his reply very well.

‘’What the fuck are you going to do when you run out of your fucking ammo or when you drop it?’’

I sighed. Leighman was a good man,but ironically,he was killed by me,his friend.

‘’Halt!’’ Stepan shouted,and I stopped,a bit afraid of his harsh voice. ‘’Why the fuck are you shouting?’’ I asked to Stepan. This guy was a probable ‘hippie’ back then,he knew nothing about stealth.
‘’There might be some mutants!’’
I was shocked.

‘’Mutants? What are you talking about,something like invisible things or a deformed pig?’’

‘’They are fucking mutants. In the end,they are mutants.’’
I nodded.

‘’You see,this is not a pig...’’
‘’What is it then?!’’ I replied,afraid of the tales that have been told to me. There have been bloodsucking beings,things that are corporeal in The Zone.
‘’No need to be afraid,the bad ones live underground.’’ Stepan replied. ‘’Still,we should go the other way. This is a fucking bloodsucker.’’
I got shocked. ‘’Blood what?’’
‘’These things are fucking bloodsuckers. They will suck your blood,and they can go invisible.’’
‘’It spotted us! Open fire!’’
Stepan did not have a firearm right now,so I just leaned and started firing. The lambent being jumped nearby,and grabbed Stepan. It hissed towards Stepan,and started walking back.
‘’NO! NO!’’
I watched...
The thing...
Drain all of Stepan’s blood.
It drained his fucking blood in fifteen seconds,and left like nothing happened.
Still,I sometimes hear Stepan’s wild screams for help,and the creature’s voice.

That goddamn voice.

Yea but still, make it a little more vivid in a sense.

Make the posts a little bit "longer" you know, it seems too sped up, it should flow more slowly, but thats just my opinion.

Have Fun

Chapter 4

The Skadovsk was a ship,an ark,amongst all others. Being my first time in The Zone,this ‘Little Piece of Heaven,’ I could not understand which was the old ship,and which was a house of death. There were many little lakes nearby,I could not let myself stop looking to their sheer beautifulness,even though they probably held many horrors inside. It was like hypnosis;you would walk,as if it was a good thing for you,but still,you would walk into a deathtrap. Skadovsk was the possible ‘safe havens’ Leighman talked about. God,Leighman’s death was a shock for us. Blink of an eye,gone. The ‘Leftenant’ of our group,our humor,our friend,gone. I was alone in this fucking waste,a place where your every step could be your death. Stepan was one example,and if the bloodsucker was hungry,I would be another example for another stalker. Stepan,may he rest in,whatever. The fucking bastard tried to kill me after all. Still,he seemed like a possible companion,hell,maybe a friend. I did not know who was good and who was bad in this place,Stepan seemed ‘bad’ or ‘grunt’ but he just seemed to care about me. Who knows,maybe because I spared his fucking life. Perhaps,this place was no other than the ‘earth,’ the ‘outside.’ After all,the place did not have any differences. If you would get killed by an anomaly,a truck would be your end ‘outside.’
My mind was blurred because of all the thoughts. I did not know what to do. Hell,this place was not good for me. It was not good for anyone. The place was evil. Cruel. I did not know where I was,nor I knew where was north or where was south. I was completely lost. Grabbing my L85,I slowly slinged it on my shoulder,and I started to walk towards the ships. There was a barge too,it emitted a strange light. I had to be cautious. I sticked towards the bushes,and I slowly looked around,not looking back at all.
I finally entered a house,abandoned because of the mutants. I could tell that,as there were many mutant parts around,and blood.
‘’Hey,stalker,do you need help?’’ A rather feminine voice told me. I did not know who that was,so I quickly grabbed my rifle and looked around. The stalker was not here.
I felt a little hand touching my shoulder. The fingernails slowly dragged themselves on my shoulder,as if they tried to penetrate my arm. This was definitely a woman,although I still had to be careful. Women were probably dancing with the devil here. ‘’I am Alisa,and I guess you are a rookie.’’ The voice whispered to my ear. I did not know what to do,I felt frozen.
‘’Who..the hell are you?’’ I asked,trying to seem sharp. She suddenly turned to me,looking towards my eyes. She seemed very good,her short reddish brown hair was near his shoulders. Her green eyes looked directly into mine,her skin was very pale,and weirdly,she seemed to wear good armor. Grabbing my other shoulder,she raised a brow.
‘’I think I told you my name,didn’t I?’’ She muttered,still looking towards me like a predator looking towards a cattle.
‘’Oh,I see. You want to know what I am doing.’’ She muttered,probably trying to make me feel shamed and stupid.
‘’Get away from me,woman!’’ I shouted,as I grabbed her hand and pushed her aside. She fell,and started to look towards me. I looked over to her. She was helpless,I did not get how she was this...
‘’My gosh...’’ I muttered,looking towards her. Her bag was opened wide,revealing a lot of food and ammo. ‘’You have good stuff there.’’
I slowly walked towards her,grabbing a pack of cigarettes.
‘’Go on! Do whatever you want to me! But I am not like the women who get themselves fucked for money!’’ She shouted,and started to struggle away. She slowly crawled towards a room,and shutted the door,and bolted it,which was surprising,as this house was rotting,a bolt would get rusted and broken.
‘’Open! I won’t do anything!’’ I shouted,raising my hands in order to show that I was not hostile.
A cocking noise penetrated the silence,forcing me to run for cover. I pushed a nearby table,and took cover.
She started to fire blindly through the door,the wooden door was no match for lead coming at high velocity,in short,bullet.
I looked around,trying to find a way to open the door. I was not going to ‘do’ it to her,but still,she thought I would. I finally grabbed my gun,and cocked it.
‘’Girl,get away from the door!’’ I shouted,and started firing towards the door. A huge hole was on the door,and I could hear moaning voices.
‘’What the-‘’ I thought to myself,still shocked. Was she shot? I knew women were like glass,one hit and gone.
‘’STALKER! DAMN YOU! MY LEG!’’ A voice shouted. I got back,and started to run towards the door,and kicked it open.
She lied there,defenseless,and shot in the leg. The hole was not big,but it would kill a man if it was on the chest or abdomen. She struggled,and gasped. ‘’Help me!’’ She shouted. The tide was changed. Now I was the predator. I would show mercy,she was a woman and she did nothing to me. Hell,it was my fault that she was shot.
‘’Hold on,I think I had a bandage...’’ I muttered,as I placed my backpack on the floor and opened it.
Under my helmet,lied a single bandage. She was lucky,this was the last one I had. I kneeled,looking towards her leg. I grabbed it,and opened the bandage’s package.
‘’Are you Sure that this will keep me going?’’ She muttered,still gasping because of the wound’s shock.
I grabbed my knife,and slowly unsheathed it,looking towards Alisa. ‘’What are you going to do with it?’’ She asked,looking to me,wondering what I’ll do.
‘’I’ll take the bullet out.’’ I muttered,as I looked deeply inside the wound. I looked over to the room,as I realized there was a bed.
I neared it,and teared a piece of cloth. Turning towards Alisa,I slowly handed the cloth over.
‘’What I am going to do with this thing?’’ She asked,as she grabbed it with her fragile,clean hands.
‘’Bite it with all your strength,it will ease this for a little.’’ I muttered. My military days were flashing in my mind,how my old commander shouted to me in Iraq,telling me to place a piece of cloth in a little girl’s mouth.
‘’Sir,why do I have to do this?’
‘‘She is hurt. This will ease the pain for her.’’
She gasped,as I penetrated her skin with my knife. The bullet was deep inside,so I had to penetrate deeper. I placed the knife inside,poking the bullet with my knife. She started gasping,and she let an ear-shattering moan after she stopped moving. I finally pushed the bullet away,and got it. Throwing it away,I slowly looked over to her,with a huge feeling of ‘triumph.’
She was unconscious,she got shocked,and the pain was too much for her to bear.
I grabbed her,and started to carry her,while walking towards Skadovsk. I didn’t know what to do with her,but probably,a medic would be there. Still,I had to be careful. I kept walking,still looking towards the ships,which had no sign of life,just like the very ground.

yeah about the story..... i stopped. for good. i ain't gonna write any stories anymore.

its just that interest in the story are just too....low. i mean, in all the three stories I've written, i just feel like its.....well the stories was in wain. with all the Major stories going on, (like snorkbait) i am nothing. i will admit, Snorkbait deserves all his readers, he is about like 1000 times better than me, and he does a really good job. but, if you look at snorkbait and then my story, you will see that his story is 10000 times better than mine. heck, i myself is a huge Snorkbait fan, and with good reason. the guy is like a god when it comes to writing. so i stopped, for good. i decided to let the writing go on to those who are good at it. but i am still hanging around the forums, and i think i will spend a lot of time on the general thread.

Chapter 5

02:35,Zaton,near the Burnt Farmstead

I heard a faint noise,but did not care much about it.
It was Alisa,she was awakened,probably because of the howling dogs or the thunder. She slowly placed her hand to my shoulder,and patted it.
‘’You awake,girl?’’ I asked,I still did not know what to do with her. Skadovsk was not the place for her,or perhaps it was. She kept looking to me,I generally got hypnotized because of her stare. She was a weapon. Women were the deadliest things on Earth;they had the power of Technology,as they were from mankind, and they could use their bodies as a weapon. I feared that Alisa was one of them. Still,she owed me one,but still,I was the one who shot her. It was normal for her to get mad at me,or shoot me if she was a sociopath.
There was a weird farmstead nearby,ruined. The place gave me the creeps,it was bad mojo. I kept looking,hoping to find a way where we can rest. She looked around,and then shrieked in fear. It was night,perhaps she saw something.
‘’Why are you shouting?’’ I asked while she pushed herself away from me and tried to crawl away. Her eyes were shining in the dark,and weirdly,she pulled a knife.
‘’She had a knife?’’ I thought,while looking over to her.
‘’Snork! SNORK!’’ She shouted,as she got up and hid behind a rock. I turned my back.
‘’Snork? What is it-‘’
A being jumped like a kangaroo,and landed on a roof. It roared,then jumped on me. Thankfully,I had some ammo.
I fired my 1911 to the sillhouette,but no avail. The broken gas mask,the shred overalls and shoes made it obvious this thing was human once. Beneath the bloody gas mask lied a mouth,full of yellow,putrid teeth and a purple pair of lips. The chin was home to many scars,and the thing’s tongue was ripped apart. It raised it’s head,probably readying itself to dig into my neck. It was probably my death,my hands were held by it.
All of a sudden,it gave a roar,kind of a moan. It was sure I was dead meat. People knew this,if you were a rookie,you were snork bait. I closed my eyes,trying to get the thoughts away and slowly accept death,as it whined. Alisa had stabbed it in the back,literally saving my life.
It fell,giving me a chance to get up. Alisa grabbed my hand,as I felt five cold fingers grabbing my leg. It was still alive,it played possum. I fired my 1911 into it’s head,finally killing it.
‘’You saved my ass there.’’ I muttered,as I walked towards her. ‘’You owe me one.’’ She muttered,while looking towards the ships. Alisa was waiting for the sun.
‘’Hey,stalker,wanna get some sleep?’’ She asked. She was right,I did not sleep for two days or more,perhaps less.
‘’It would be good...’’ I muttered,as I placed my hand towards my abdomen. A warm liquid was dripping. Alisa suddenly looked towards me.
‘’You are bleeding!’’
‘’Oh really?’’ I replied,trying to break the ice,but,no avail,I fell. I did not know what to say,this was the first time I got a serious wound. Yes,I am a soldier for five or more years,still,that was the reason I was called ‘Rookie.’
I never fought in a hot zone before.
And,this place seemed to be the hottest zone.

Zaton,Alisa’s safehouse,06:54
‘’Are you allright,stalker?’’ Alisa asked,trying to wake me up. ‘’Am I dead?’’ I muttered,looking around. I was in a little part of a ship,and there was nothing around,except a table,and some supplies on it. I could make out some canned meat,some bread and some medkits. My armor was out,and my abdomen was bandaged.
‘’Thanks...’’ I muttered,slowly looking towards her. I had a cold or something,I did not feel good.
‘’What’s your name?’’ Alisa asked.

This was a hard question. I couldn’t tell my name (for security reasons) and if I would say my nickname she would say ‘you don’t trust me?’ to me and then she would leave.
‘’Just call me Rookie.’’
She sighed.
‘’REAL NAME!’’ She shouted.
I finally chose to say it.
‘’My name is Brian.’’
She smiled.
‘’Okay Brian,or Rookie...thanks for saving my life.’’
I felt weird when I was looking at her. Looking to my watch to see 07:00,I jumped out of the bed and I fell.
‘’OW!’’ I shouted as I waved my arm and finally got up. Alisa was shouting at me,but I didn’t care. My mission was to meet the U.N. Informants in 07:30. I was going to break Alisa’s heart,but mission first.
Then I remembered I was the only one alive. I could not live til I could get to Yanov. I quickly stopped myself.

‘’What the fuck are you doing Rookie?’’ Alisa shouted as she waved her hands quickly,unaware of my mission. It was normal,I met her sixteen hours ago,and now..she was attached to me. I sighed.
‘’Alisa,do you have any idea why I am here?’’
‘’Artifacts? Money?’’
I took a deep breath.
‘’Undercover mission.’’
She laughed.
‘’And I am a pink elephant.’’
I got up,and grabbed my bulletproof vest. It was nearly penetrated. ‘’DAMNIT!’’ I thought to myself,as I kept looking around while trying to find some equipment for repairing.
My L85 was also in the worst condition,it could explode in my hands.
‘’What happened Rookie?’’
She was teasing me.
‘’Do you have a gun?’’ I muttered,secretly looking at her cleavage. She was beautiful,still,I could dump her if she got me in a sticky situation.
She suddenly grabbed an Armsel Striker,and threw an AKS-74U to me.
‘’I don’t know how to use it.’’
She sighed.
‘’What the fuck do you want me to do,find a suitable weapon?’’
I sighed as we got out.

Chapter 6

07:55,Zaton,nearby Circus anomaly
‘’Hold on.’’
Alisa weirdly looked at the crater-kind of anomaly,there was two,or three fireballs circling around the crater,and there was a weird thing inside. The weird thing,that I could not identify,was sticking out of the cracks surrounding the crater. I slowly got up,and walked near the anomaly. My armor was nothing but a thing that saved me from the cold air. Kevlar was a mess,and there was no ‘protective element’ at all. That meant ‘one wrong step and you are grilled’ to me. I neared the anomaly field,and now,I could see what was the thing sticking out. A man in blue armor,burnt and grotesquely changed. His arm was the thing sticking out,and his other body parts were generally turned into dust. Still,the smell of burnt human flesh irritated me,and I backed. I looked around.
Alisa looked over to me.
‘’You talked about informants...maybe they are the mercs who are in that place over there.’’ She said to me.
My info matched with her,and there were many evidence supporting her. The dead guy’s arm had a blue glove,and his overalls were blue. Also,the informants were going to have blue,standard armor and a guy in an ‘Exoskeleton.’
I did not know what was an Exoskeleton,and I did not cared about it much. It was probably some high-tech armor. Leighman told stories about Exoskeletons before,he said those things could lift 100 kilos and make you walk like nothing happened.
I slowly patted Alisa’s shoulder,and we started to walk towards the ‘compound.’

O8:00,Zaton,Merc Compound
I slowly looked over to the metal door,it was rusted and it was open. The bullet holes served as a warning,I slowly walked over the gate,took cover and peeked inside.
Some dead bodies,some alive guys dumping corpses in a campfire,and some guys checking my position.
I made a move with my hand,calling Alisa. She looked inside,and took cover immediately.
‘’Girl,do you know about them?’’ I asked.
She sighed.
‘’Everyone here knows about them. ‘The Starving Squad’ people call them. They are out of rations,and the group was attacked by bandits and loners a lot. They hid themselves in that building. I wonder who are the guys dumping bodies.’’
I slowly got up,and walked over to the place stealthily. Three guys,dumping five dead bodies in the campfire,some still moaning. The killers then poured petrol on the guys.
As you can think,they were burned by the guys.
I slowly peeked through the corner ,as two bullets suddenly entered the pillar in front of me. If they were three centimetres to the left,I was now a dead body without a head.
I shouted,and as you can think,I was shocked. My gun was on the ground,and I just fired my 1911 towards the guys. Some of them got hit,and the most unlucky one fell with a sudden blowout of red on his chin. He was still alive,but he fell on to the dead bodies,he got immolated alive.
‘’ALISA COVER ME!’’ I shouted while crawling to get to safety. Alisa threw a grenade towards the guys,I could hear them talk in English.
‘’COVER ME!’’ Was one of the things I could hear.
‘’GRENADE!’’ One of them shouted as I looked towards him. His equipment was black and brown.
All my thoughts gone haywire as a grenade exploded in front of me. A lot of rubble flew around,and one of them fired a grenade launcher towards the wall I was taking cover a few seconds ago. I just looked to the thing,it didn’t explode,much to my surprise.
Alisa suddenly jumped near me,firing towards the guys. One of them fell to the automatically fired buckshots,and the other just took cover. It was only him. Probably he was scared shitless,as he was shouting weirdly.
Alisa kept firing towards the maniac as three guys fired upon her. She suddenly took cover and threw another grenade towards them. I could get up,the shock was gone.
Grabbing my AKS-74U,I ran inside the little building,somewhat ruined by the grenade. Bullets whizzed past me as I fired towards the guys,one of them fell,shouting and moaning.
Finally,my trick went well,I could flank them. I double-tapped one of them,and fired the rest of my magazine to the guy who had a weird armor,maybe the Exoskeleton.
A bullet whizzed past me again,and I turned to the guy. He aimed for Alisa,she was still busy firing at the other guy who was not killed by me.
I ran through the cupboards and threw myself on the guy,his bullet was nowhere near Alisa.
He tried to shoot me with his Magnum,still,I could keep myself going. I kicked him in the face three times,then got up from my baby step-like position. His gun was on the ground,and I just kicked it away,then punched him in the face til he stopped moaning. He did not wear a gas mask,and unfortunately for him,his face was nearly destroyed because of my fists.
Blood splattering from his head,he sighed.
‘’What the fuck do you want from me?’’ He shouted,swaying.
‘’Who the fuck are you?’’ I asked,looking towards him as Alisa entered.
‘’I took out the guys-who the fuck is this guy?’’ She said,looking towards me and then turning,looking towards him in a weird way.
‘’We are just some expert bandits! We were trying to get some guys and these maniacs attacked us! Thanks to you my whole group got killed!’’
Alisa sighed.
‘’This guy probably killed your are on your own now in the Zone,Brian.’’
I looked over to her.
‘’Can you give me that Striker please?’’
She looked weirdly at me,thinking what I was thinking. She first stuttered,and then took a breath and looked over to me.
‘’You are not going to do that,right?’’
‘’I am going to do that.’’
I backed a bit,aiming towards his head with the Striker. Alisa just looked,watching the scene. I pulled the trigger as I heard a short-lived scream. The ground was sprayed in red,his brains were also splattered around. It smelled bad.
Alisa closed her eyes and got out,while I checked the place for survivors. One guy in blue was still alive,perhaps dying. I slowly neared him.
‘’What is your name? What are you doing here?’’ I asked,while holding his wound.
‘’My were just a group of –cough- mercs,these maniacs attacked,Hatchet took some of them out...still,he was knocked down...’’
The guy stopped breathing. It was obvious that he died. I slowly got up,kind of shocked by that thing,a guy who could get some help getting killed in front of me,and I walked over towards Alisa.
‘’Girl,did you find any alive guys?’’
‘’I found one in an Exo,he is lucky to be alive,his arm is burnt like hell. Better talk to him before he dies.’’
I quickly walked over to the guy in an exoskeleton,lying near the wall,holding his arm.
‘’Who are you?’’ He asked,while holding his PDA.
‘’Are you the guys who were going to get the operation working?’’
‘’Yeah...we got cut off. So,I am thinking of staying here,as our guys in Pripyat got killed by a single guy.’’
‘’Single? You fucking kidding me?’’ I replied. A group of mercenaries,owned by a single badass bastard.
‘’Hey...the guy also helped us find food. If not for him we were dead meat. What was his name... Dergatyov or something...’’
I slowly looked over to his PDA. All the info was gone.
‘’So,can you help me with my arm? It hurts bad.’’
He was a deserter,and he had no information about my informants,but still,I had to find some companions here,and he seemed like a good guy.
‘’Look,here’s a deal. I stick to you,and you follow me.’’ I muttered to his ear,covered by the helmet. He nodded.
Alisa returned,holding her Striker.
‘’Why did you drop it? I nearly lost it. This gun is hard to come by,Rookie. Treat it with love.’’
While Alisa was talking to me,Hatchet slowly raised his hand,possibly trying to say something. I was right.
‘’Hey.’’ He murmured.
I turned back to him. I had to answer his questions,as he could become one of our ‘team’ made up of two.
‘’Yes,what happened?’’ Alisa said before me,it was kind of annoying.
Hatchet slowly got himself up,and he slowly walked towards us.
‘’Here’s my thought: I don’t think we can make it to Pripyat now,so,how about getting some information around here? I know how to kill but I don’t know what is what. It seems like Alisa is the only one who knows what the fuck is going on in this shithole,so we stick to her.’’
Alisa smiled,she liked Hatchet’s compliment. She slowly looked over to me.
‘’Rookie is the one who got us. Better ask him.’’
I was rather uneasy,as I knew nothing about this place,so giving the responsibility to Hatchet was the best idea.
‘’We’ll go by Hatchet’s plan.’’ I muttered,and I slowly looked over to Hatchet.
He nodded.
‘’So,guys,follow me.’’ Alisa said,as she turned back and walked towards the rusted gate...

Chapter 7

Alisa’s Safehouse,22:55,Zaton

We were in Alisa’s place for a long time,making plans. Hatchet was the sentry tonight,and I was the sentry tomorrow. We were planning on our plan of going to Pripyat as Hatchet alarmed us.
‘’Hold on.’’ Hatchet muttered,as he slowly grabbed his TRS-301. I grabbed my AKSU,that I finally learned how to use thanks to Alisa. She just grabbed her trusty Striker. Hatchet slowly kept looking through the cracks in the closed window,checking for any threats.
‘’Three guys in green stalker suits,they walk like idiots.’’ He muttered,as he slowly opened the window,and started to aim. He slowly grabbed his pistol,and he threw it to me.
‘’You have the worst gun among us. You’ll need it,it’s much better than your 1911.’’ He said,one arm still holding his gun.
I got up,as I looked over Alisa. She was confident.
‘’Whatcha gonna do?’’ I asked,her shotgun could not do good against guys who were not in a range of a shotgun.
‘’I’ll keep an eye on the door,while you will go out and storm them,your gun is for that.’’
I was confused. ‘’What?’’ I asked,as she pushed me. I was near the door and she seemed serious.
‘’C’mon! Don’t be a pussy!’’
I looked over to her,my eyes filled with shock.
She suddenly grabbed my shoulder.
‘’Just kidding. Hatchet will shoot’em and we will just keep an eye out.’’ She laughed,but Hatchet’s gunfire voice suddenly stopped her.
Hatchet turned to Alisa,his shock could be seen from the visor.
‘’Um,these guys did not care about my shots and they walk like zombies...’’ He muttered as a sudden hailstorm of bullets destroyed the remains of the window.
Alisa got up and shouted.
While the zombies walked towards us,probably four of them,I got up and calmed the two down.
‘’So,what the fuck are we going to do? They got us surrounded!’’ Hatchet shouted. He reloaded his gun,threw me a magazine,and he started to pray as he fired the bullets. Alisa was the safest of the group,all she had to do was to keep an eye on the door.
Hatchet shouted He was shocked,but still,he had to kill. I threw myself near the window and started shooting blindly. I fell with a voice of a bullet whizzing near my ear,and another hitting it,and the last hitting my shoulder.
I fell,I could not hear the constant speech of thoughts,it all went slow-mo,I just held my ear.
‘’FUCK!’’ I shouted,I could not do something else. All went black after my roar.

Alisa’s Safehouse,06:44,Zaton
I woke up in a carnage. The room was destroyed,all the stuff was thrown around or shot,Hatchet was lying on the floor moaning,and Alisa was crying.
I slowly patted Hatchet’s shoulder and I got up. Staggering towards Alisa,I just listened to the woods.
‘’Alisa,what is going on?’’
Hatchet,with the last of his strength,raised his head.
He fell again,unconscious.
I grabbed Alisa and slowly looked at her. She was crying,her iris white like an albino,and she was just like a rabid dog.
I shaked her,trying to get her on her senses. ‘’C’mon Alisa! C’mon!’’ I shouted,still shaking her. She looked at me...
‘’My head,what are we going to do I am say?’’
She was seriously bad.
‘’Girl get on your goddamn senses!’’ I shouted,she was still murmuring meaningless things.
I sighed. I would regret what I have done.
I held her head and then I threw her on the floor.
She rolled on the floor like a lifeless body. I grabbed her arm,then got her on my back.
I did not care about my bleeding ear,but still,it was a bad wound. My shoulder was even worse.
‘’We better get her to Skadovsk.’’ Hatchet muttered. He was fine,thanks to his helmet,but Alisa was affected a lot. I kicked open the door,and started to walk.


‘’What’s the matter with her?’’ Beard asked as I carried her inside. Hatchet was helping me carry her,and he was a bit afraid of stalkers,who could have shot him by now.
‘’She got attacked by a controller!’’ I shouted,as I placed her on a table. Beard was looking to my face weirdly.
‘’Kid,the only thing that would heal a critical psi-attack is time...’’ He muttered,looking towards his hand. He pressed his fist against his palm,then grabbed a bottle of vodka.
People were out by now,as they were going artifact hunting. Only two bandits that did not give a damn were inside,drinking vodka.
I left her,then walked over to Beard.
‘’There might be artifacts!’’
He turned towards me. He was probably the messenger of bad news today.
‘’No. They only protect at the moment. She might stay that way for weeks. Hell,she might even turn, her face zombified. We better look after your wounds,they seem serious.’’
Hatchet tried to stop me,but I did not care. I grabbed a vodka bottle and drank some of it,then I got out.
The sky was grim and reddish,something was going on. It was not an emission,there were no sign of thunders or things. I walked away,there was only one stalker looking around like me.
‘’Bro,you have any ideas about it?’’ He turned to me,his face a bit pale.
‘’The Zone is angry.’’ I muttered.
All of a sudden,a dog ran towards us,with crowds of it running behind him like a race.
‘’What the fuck is happening?’’ He muttered,looking towards my face. I slowly backed away,he was ‘changing.’
‘’Why are you running away?’’ He asked,as he pressed towards his cheek. It fell with burning skin. He was dying.
‘’What the fuck? WHAT THE FUCK?’’ He asked as he fell,groaning. I ran inside,then I tripped,falling on Hatchet.
He stopped.
‘’There’s something on your face...’’
I looked over to my hand. It was burnt,as well as my face. Then I remembered the stalker outside.
‘’Don’t get out. DON’T.’’ I muttered as three stalkers came down the stairs. ‘’What’s going on outside? Mutants are dying.’’

‘’There’s a blowout outside,and this one is a tad dangerous than others.’’ Beard said. He looked towards me.

‘’Hey,kiddo,we better patch you up.’’ Beard said. ‘’There is our medic,Tremor up there. He’ll patch you up.’’

I nodded. Good to see there were medics in this rusted hellhole,though
I knew the place was safer than Alisa’s safehouse. The pain in my ear and my face got it’s toll,I needed a medic seriously.
I slowly walked over to the rusted stairs.

There was a mechanic in front of me,and there was another stair and another pair of rooms. I turned towards the one in the right. I was right,it was the medic’s room. He was a weird guy from what I could see. He looked weirdly towards another stalker lying on a bed. The guy was bandaged. I did not ask what happened. Tremor turned to me.

‘’What happened,stalker?’’

I gave out a breath then looked towards Tremor.

‘’Blowout,bullets,anything you can think about.’’ I said.

‘’Okay then,lie on the bed and I will patch you up.’’

I slowly looked towards the bed. There was blood all over it. I did not mind the cutting tools around,the guy was a medic. Though the blood packs creeped me.

‘’So,your shoulder...’’

He grabbed his knife and slowly took the bullet out. The pain was immense,but when it got out,I breathed in relief. It was good to have things out of your body. Weirdly,it was painful but it gave a little sense of pleasure.

He grabbed his bandage and bandaged my arm. I sighed. This had no pain at all,except it made my arm itchy.
‘’Don’t touch your arm.’’ Tremor muttered.
‘’FUCK!’’ I thought.
‘’For the burn wounds...’’
He looked at his table,then threw some of his stuff around.
‘’Ah,here it is! Burn lotion.’’
‘’What does it do?’’ I asked,while holding my arm.
‘’It makes you feel a little pinch,but it will do good to your burn wounds.’’

He squeezed the lotion to his hand then he slowly rubbed my face with the lotion. It was painful,the smell and the pain got me questioning about going to a medic. I had to be calm.
‘’It hurts like hell!’’ I said to Tremor.
‘’I know,but otherwise you’d have to amputate your own arm.’’
I nodded.
He patted my shoulder.
‘’Here ya go.’’
I slowly got up,looked around,then I slowly got out,only to see Hatchet looking at me weirdly. He had a saddening feeling in his eyes. He was in a Mercenary suit,his exoskeleton was off.
‘’That thing was...irradiated. So I am too.’’

I sighed.
‘’Fucking kidding me! At least you are alright?’’
He looked up to me.
‘’I am,I am. Those stalkers gave me a couple of antirads.’’
I looked around. His exoskeleton was on a table. He could sell it to Owl to make a good chunk of money. But still,I had to learn why he was so sad.

‘’What happened?’’


He looked up to me.

‘’What happened to her?’’ I asked. I knew it,but there was a slim chance. Don’t lose hope.

‘’She died.’’
I looked up to him.


I shouted while kneeling. Alisa,one of my only friends died. She had sympathy,she had jokes,she had confidence.

‘’What happened to her?’’ I asked,tears dripping from my eyes.

‘’She started gurgling,then she puked blood on my suit. She then died.’’
‘’FUCK THIS SHIT!’’ I said to myself. Still,I had Hatchet. He could live through. He was a tough one. At least I hoped him to be.
Hatchet looked down to me.
‘’Well,we must stick to the plan. We should go to Pripyat. But,I don’t think we can make it. What I am thinking is,that we should go to Yanov. I had some friends there.’’
I nodded. We were going to Yanov. That was the plan.
I grabbed Hatchet’s exo and gave it to Owl after running up the stairs.
‘’How much does it cost?’’
‘’Well,it has blood on it and it is a Mercenary type Exo... 50.000 roubles will do the job.’’
I sighed.

‘’Alright then. Gimme the money.’’

He slowly gave me the money. I placed it in my backpack while going down.

‘’I have money. Now we can go.’’

Hatchet sighed.

‘’Off we go then.’’
