Horrors of the Zone

This story is about 4 stalkers' lives in the zone. This is my first story, so don't expect it to be really good. Enjoy, comment as you wish. Criticism and ideas are welcome of course also, if you want a character that you have made, to be in this story then I can do it Just remember not to make them unrealistic/weird. So enjoy! I hope you like it


chapter 1: Deep rain.

Vanuska stared at the darkness. He had been in the zone for 2 weeks now. He have been in the rookie village for some time now. But he can't exactly be called a “rookie”. He knows how to handle a gun, and he can tell the difference between a trap or a none-dangerous situation. He had achieved the respect of many stalkers. Wolf had put him on guard duty, because the mutant activity had become more active lately. He could see none mutant's, but it was night so it was pretty dark. He could hear distant screams and howls. Just the thought of what was going on out there scared him. “gloomy weather, eh?” said said Simka Baton.
Simka was Vanuska's best friend. They traveled to the zone together and they have known each other for some years.
Simka had the same background as Vanuska, he was a respected stalker who knows quite something about the zone.

“yes” said Vanuska quite stiff. They where going to rid a dog-lair tomorrow, and all stalkers knew that every day in the zone, might be there last. “come on man! Don't be so scared. You know we are not gonna die. Besides, we got backup.” said Simka to comfort Vanuska. “i know, I know, its just..... I think going to the zone was a mistake” Simka and Vanuska had robbed a bank, but they failed. So they traveled to the zone. “it was either that, or prison, my friend.” replied Simka. At the same time he finished the sentence, a loud thunder sounded. Suddenly after the thunder, it started raining heavily.
It was like Vanuska's heart where filled with sorrow as the rain got stronger. He couldn't sleep, but after some time, his body gave up.

end of chapter 1.
i will make another chapter shortly.

Chapter 2: Dog hunt

The sun burned in Vanuska's eyes, as Simka woke him up. “Come on Vanuska, its time,” Simka said, and smiled. Vanuska gathered his equipment, and then he joined the other stalkers. Simka was put in charge of the squad. Two other rookie's where in the group. “Alright, you know what to do. We will find the lair and then shoot the bastards down, are we clear?” Simka said to them. “Yes,” replied one of the rookies.

15 minutes after that they where standing 11 meters away from the lair. They could see all the blind dogs from here, there was about 9 of them. The Rookies where nervous. “On my mark” whispered Simka. Vanuska and the others nodded in reply. “1....2...3.. NOW!” whispered Simka. The stalkers opened fire and killed 3 of the dogs, the other dogs where quick to react, and they stormed towards the stalkers. Simka took aim with his AK/74, and fired at the dogs. He wasn't that lucky, though. Two dogs fell to the ground but the others continued. The rookies where too nervous, so none of their shots hit the dogs. One dog leaped towards one of the rookies. He fell down as the dog was on him. He struggled against the dog, but it was no use. Vanuska was quick though. He took his AK/74, and aimed it straight at the dogs stomach. 3 shots where fired, and some pathetic yelps came out of the dog. Vanuska quickly turned around, and he saw a dog leaping towards him. He quickly hit it with his rifle. The dog was knocked back. He pumped it full of bullets and it quickly died. Simka shot the last dog, and finally, there was peace. The one rookie had some scratches, but it was not severe.

Sorry for the nit-picking but it irritates me.

Chapter 3: The long road


The stalkers greeted the group with food and vodka. They celebrated that they returned home alive all four men. “you see, we didn't die! So stop being so gloomy and celebrate that we succeeded the task with ease!” Simka said.
Vanuska didn't reply, he just returned to his sleeping bag, and then rested.
He didn't talk with the other stalkers the whole evening. Simka had just collected the reward from Sidovorich, it was an amount of 3000 roubles.
“come on Vanuska! Why haven't you talked with all the other stalkers all day? Anyways, I was thinking......... maybe we should head out for the Bar.”
Simka said. Vanuska looked at Simka with surprised eyes. “you sure you want to go? You know we have to pass the Garbage first. And you know that there is swarming with million bandits there.” Vanuska said a bit curious.
Simka nodded in reply. Vanuska tough of the trip that they were gonna take, if they sat off for the Bar. Finally, after two minutes silence, “okay, I am up
for it. But if we die, I am blaming you.” Vanuska said. “good then, but if we die you cant blame me, hehe.” Simka said while he laughed. The next day, they went to the garbage. When they neared the Bridge outpost, they halted.
The military wasn't there. Only human bodies and dog corpses. The strange thing were, that all the dogs were dead. It was quite literally, a massacre.
Simka went onward, with Vanuska covering his back. Because it could be a trap. When Simka nearly passed the outpost, a Military stalker stepped out of a bush. “Don't move, or I will shoot!” he yelled. The stalker took some steps towards Simka. Simka said nothing though, he just stood still. “Hand over your weapons and leave! This place is restricted for Military personnel only!” the stalker yelled. “look, I don't want any trouble, what if I gave you some roubles and we can....... forget about this.” Simka said calm. “Ha! You think you can bribe your way out? Even if I took the offer, the other soldiers would shoot you on site!” the Stalker yelled yet again. Vanuska noticed that the stalker hadn't seen Him yet. He aimed his AK/74 at the persons head. Suddenly a gun was pointed at Vanuskas head. “Don't even think about it, Scum!” a Military stalker said. Now he realized that there wasn't only one stalker, there was two. Vanuska had no clue what to do. Neither had Simka.
Suddenly, Vanuska took a chance. When the other stalker was scratching his nose, he struck him with his rifle butt. The stalker was knocked out, and while the the first stalker was confused, simka slashed him with his rifle too.
“good thinking, Vanuska!” Simka said while he smiled. “lets disguise us as military stalkers, take their gear!” Vanuska said. They took of the suits of
the stalkers, and they took their weapons. After that, they shot the stalkers, and then they hid their bodies. As they went to the entrance of the garbage, they saw several military camps. Even some choppers and jeeps. Something big must be going on, Vanuska tough. Finally, after an hour of walking. They were at the Garbage. Ahead they saw a barrier, with five stalkers guarding it.
They took a good look on the stalkers, because they didn't look like bandits
nor did they look like loners. They wore standard mercenary armor, but the colors were jet-black and white. Their weapons was an M4A1 rifle, and a desert eagle. One of the strange stalkers spotted Vanuska and Simka. “Hey, you Stalkers! Halt! Why are the military sending two military stalkers up here?” he yelled. “we are not military! We are Loners disguised as military stalkers!” Simka yelled quick. There was a moments silence. “Loners you say? Did you two sneak past the military by your selfs? Come over here, lets have a chat.” the stalker yelled. Vanuska and Simka hesitated at start, but then again, did they have choice? Five armed men were looking at them, ready to blow their head off. They went to the barrier. “Hello stalkers, what is your business here? It must be important, since you sneaked by the military to get here” the stalker said calm. “we are traveling to the bar, to get new assignments and a place to settle down.” Vanuska said quite nervous.
“ah, so your traveling to the Bar, Eh? Well, good luck to you then.”
the stalker nearly finished his sentence, as his radio started.
Vanuska could just hear it was something about some bandits heading here.
“WHAT? Shit! How many bandits are coming? Eight? Damn!” he replied.
“Please stalkers, help us! We are in deep shit! Eight bandits are heading this way! Help us, and you will not regret it!” the stalker said. Some seconds passed, and finally, Vanuska and Simka nodded. “thank you stalkers! We are in dept to you!” he said.

Vanuska and Simka took position with Sgt.Stryglok. That was the stalker they were talking to. They hid in the bushes and behind some trees, were the bandits did not expect them. The other group hid them selfs in a bus.
They could hear foot steps. “are you ready?” Stryglok whispered. “yeah”
was the reply from Simka. When the bandits were at 6 meters distance, they
began to shoot. Already from the first burst of shots, five bandits fell to the ground, some squirming in pain, other laying dead still. They made short work of the rest of the bandits, Vanuska couldn't even understand why they had needed His and Vanuska's help.

Horrors of the Zone

Chapter 4: Fields of radiation

Vanuska and Simka sat around a camp fire with the other stalkers.
”you did a good job, stalkers.” Sgt.Stryglok said to them. It was getting dark, and suddenly it began to thunder. The weather was hazy and dark. Vanuska and Simka stayed with the strange stalkers until morning. “sorry for not telling you that much, but things were in a hurry. We are members of the United Federation Of The Zone, or in short, UFOTZ. Our goals is basically
Duty's and Freedom's combined. We fight the zone, to make it a better place.
When our goal is finally complete, there will be no mutants in the zone, and it will be open to everybody. I mean just think about it, a zone with no mutants, and the area will finally be livable again.” Stryglok told them. Vanuska tough of a livable zone, but he couldn't imagine it. As he saw the zone, there will always be mutants and other horrors in the Zone. “well, as said, heres your reward.” Stryglok said, while reaching out for something in his pocket. He his PDA out, and transferred 2700 roubles to Vanuska and Simka's PDA. “there you go, as promised.” Stryglok said while smiling.
A short“Thanks Stryglok” came out from Vanuska's lips. Then suddenly, Stryglok looked at Vanuska and Simka, as he had forgotten something. “hey, by any chance you, do you want to join us? We are recruiting experienced stalkers. You will get good weapons and armor, and really good armor too.
And, you will be fighting for a good cause.” Stryglok said. Simka and Vanuska looked at each other quite confused. “sorry, but we just want to get to the bar for now, if we see you again, maybe we will join.” Simka said.
Stryglok gave a little Sigh. “of course. But I doubt that we will see each other again. You know that every day in the zone, could be your last. Well, anyways, if you are keeping on the road, then you will walk by a ruined building. We call it the “Flea Market”. We got a small base there, its our foothold in the garbage. If you are ever to get north, then our main base is in
The red Forrest. We also got a base in Pripyat, in the center actually. But we
lost connection to the base in Pripyat, we don't have a clue whats happening up there. When you reach the bar, you will be sure to find some of our men,
They are recruiting stalkers up there. Oh, by the way, you better want to take those military suits off, because many factions, like freedom,will shoot you
on sight.” Stryglok told them. The next day, they traveled further to the Bar.
As they walked up to the Bar, they understood why people call this place the “garbage”. There was scrap and metal pieces everywhere, it was a really big junkyard. It had a strange effect on stalkers, a feeling of decay,ruin, and sorrow. They didn't encounter any bandits on the way, they only saw some dogs running across the road a few times. They saw fields of pure radiation in the distance, and they could only imagine who would venture out there.
Nearly at the end, they heard a Terrifying roar, it woke fear in their hearts.
The sound was close, and it was like they couldn't move. Another roar sounded. The horror they saw was unbearable. It stood four meters away from them, its mouth was horrifying, it had tentacles where its mouth should have been. It was a tall, fearsome sight. It looked humanoid, but they knew it wasn't Human. Its red eyes stirring at them with hatred, and hunger. Some places were covered with wild,black, beast-like fur. It was Horror.
Suddenly, it started to turn invisible. They head another roar, and they could hear that it was running towards them................

To be continued........

Chapter 5: The Horrors of the Zone

Vanuska was stunned in fear. It was like his heart stopped beating. He draw his AK/74, but he fumbled. The gun fell to the ground. Vanuska and Simka was petrified in horror. Suddenly, it became visible, a half meter away from Simka. It grabbed Simka, then it jumped back to the wilderness with him.
A final roar sounded. The last roar, was somehow more terrifying than the others. He heard Simka scream, and he knew he had to find him. He followed the direction the monster had headed. He pushed the leafs from a bush aside, and then, he saw a little opening. The monster sad on simka, it was about to clutch its tentacle mouth around Simka neck. Now Vanuska replaced his fear with hatred, hatred that was pointed at the monster. He draw his pistol, quickly, shot one bullet at its head, and suddenly, the beast-like sounds stopped. The shot didn't miss. Simka quickly pushed the monster aside.
“OH GOD! WHAT WAS THAT THING!” Simka yelled. he was terrified.
After ten minutes, they came to sense again. “i think I know what it is....I've
heard about a creature, that sucked blood out of its prey....... I think its..........
a blood sucker.” Vanuska said, scared of that thing to get up again. Simka
looked at Vanuska, and tough of what would had happened if Vanuska hadn't
been there. “thank you friend, you saved my life.” simka said calm.
There was silence. Vanuska lifted the “blood sucker” up on his shoulders. They could tell good stories about their clash with this semi-legendary beast.
And they could make good money, if they sold the body to scientists.

They neared a duty barrier, blocking the entrance to Rostok. “Halt Stalkers! You are on duty territory, no shooting here, or we will put you down.” one of the duty guards said. “what is your business in Rostok?” asked the same dutier. “the same reason that every other stalker are coming here for, we are heading to the Bar.” Simka said polite. The dutier looked at Simka and Vanuska, then he said “alright, we will let you through.” The dutier said.
“oh, wait! Be careful, I heard that some new mutants appeared at the outskirts of Rostok. Hey...... is that.... a Blood Sucker that you are carrying? How did you to manage to..... ah, never mind. You know it requires both wil and Courage to take down a blood sucker, well it looks like you got that courage and wil.”


Chapter 5 part 2

the weather was foggy and dark, as they wondered to Rostok. Ahead, they saw a truck and some stalkers. They Held weapons ready, and it looks like they were attacked by something. They heard them shout, and sometimes they actually shot at nothing. Suddenly, they heard a Lion-like raw, and they saw the silhouette of a crawling,human body, that actually was pretty fast.
They saw five more silhouette's like these, and they were all circling the stalker group of four men. Simka and Vanuska ran over to the stalkers to help them. It was four loners like them selfs. They looked experienced, because they got good weapons and armor. When Simka and Vanuska joined them, they didn't even talk to them. Then, out of the darkness, a thing that looked like a stalker jumped out of the darkness. It landed on one of the stalkers, and it actually took a bite of his throat. The stalker was dead on an instant. Before any of the other stalkers could react, it jumped away. One of those monsters jumped on Simka, but Simka was ready. He quickly shot its chest-area, and only a dead carcass landed on Simka, although it knocked him down. Vanuska shot one of those things in the head, as it was about to jump on another stalker, it fell to the ground with a big bump. Suddenly, out of no where a snork jumped on Vanuska. It felt like all the air was pressed out of his lungs. The snork clawed Vanuska's chest, and Vanuska felt a massive
pain. He managed to punch the snork with a Clumsy but powerful fist.
The snork just continued to claw away, but this time at his face. Before its sharp nails could come in contact with his face, Vanuska head-butted the snork. He didn't knew if it helped, but he got to push it away. The snork were stunned for some seconds. He took his pistol and shot its side. A big scream of pain sounded, as the bullets teared through the snorks flesh. He pushed it aside, so he was able to get to his feet. The snork lied down, but it was not dead. Vanuska took his rifle, and hammered the rifle-butt in the snorks face several times, then it stopped moving. While his desperate struggle against the snork was going on, the others were finishing the rest of the snorks.

“Thank you stalkers, without you we couldn't have made it. Well, Benarchi didn't anyway...... poor guy. We will take him back to the bar, for a proper
burial. It looks like you need some bandages too, friend.” one of the stalker's said. Vanuska commanded Simka to take one of the snork bodies as well.
They were glad that they finally made it to the bar. The pain in his chest was
getting stronger. He needed some medical attention quick.

Every people in the bar was shocked to see a bloodied stalker and his buddy dragging both a blood sucker and snork carcass's. “what happened? Did you get attacked by snorks?” the barkeep asked. They rid a table and placed Vanuska on it. “we were attacked by a bunch of snorks just outside Rostok.”
Simka answered stiff. He was tired, and he was battered after the combat against the snorks. Vanuska started to cough blood. “don't worry, your gonna make it, buddy” said Simka to calm Vanuska down. Vanuska made a weak nod, but he knew that he could die right here and now. The wound was deep, the snork had Clawed his whole chest, it was all bloodied and bruised. The light gazed fast for his eyes, and his vision was blurry. Then came Darkness........
