Catch Me Before I Fall
Hackers And Murderers
They say most of your brain shuts down in Cryo-Sleep...all but the primitive side...the animal side.
If I had known that this would have happened, I sure as hell would have passed it off as bull. If I had been told that I would fall for a widely known murderer, then I would have called you a liar, and if you had told me that my life would be saved by that murderer, then I would have laughed. But I'm not laughing.
Everyone was alseep, all but one. The murderer, Richard .B. Riddick. There were others, Sharon, but she was known for being called Shazza. A holy man, Imam, with three sons. A young kid, looked to be just a teenager, Jack, and some crackpot man named Paris. Then there was Johns, the so called cop. Along with Caroline Fry, an apparent close friend of our little cop. There was also a young woman, her hair the color of fire, reaching to nearly mid-back. She stood out from the others, she wasn't trying to dress fancy, just baggy cargo pants and a dark top that lifted above her stomache, showing off her tonned mid-section. But there were cuffs on her wrists, she was on her way to do her time. Her name was Shaylon Shadow.
Long slender, feather light fingers, perfect for pick-pocketing. But that's not exactly how she had used them, she stuck to computers and machines. She had cracked the secruity code for Butcher Bay, people think that it was because of her the Riddick had escaped, but she had been in lock-up when he had escaped, so that didn't quite work.
Out of nowhere, a small flaming rock, no bigger then a golf ball, broke in through the side of the ship, right abover her shoulder, where the chains for her were sucured to the wall, causing them to break. Riddick watched through the blindfold he had on as she fell forward, still asleep, but quickly waking up. she fell into the clear door and it banged open, causing the woman to fall free.
You would hear when she hit the ground as the grates thundered from her fall. Her head cracked hard against the grates, creating a large gash on her forehead. she groaned as she slipped into conciousness, her hands coming to her head, blood painting her fingers. She looked around in a daze, and used a rail to try and stand. blood was now flowing down the side of her face, nearly getting in her left eye.
More meteores berated the ship, and she stumbled forward, falling against the glass of none other then Richard .B. Riddick's Cryo tube. She looked up with aqua eyes, scanning his face to see if he had awoken to, but as far as she knew he was asleep like the rest. Blood smeered on the glass when she had fellen foward and her head collided with it. She leaned against the tank, still watching him.
'He really does look like a killer.' she thought to herself, looking at the muscled man before her. The Ship suddenly jerked and she felt the air rush from her lungs, she was left gasping before glass began to shower down from the front of the ship. she ducked back down, in front of the murderer.
Riddick watched as the woman before him fell free from her cryo tube, waking up in the process. Her head had split open, he could smell the blood. He could smell her pain, her heart beat increasing as she woke from her sleep to feel the pain.
He got a much better look of her as she stood, before falling against his tube when the ship rocked and shook. Some of her blood was smeared onto the glass when she hit it, he could hear her hiss in pain when she hit the ground once more. He had to surpress a growl when he saw who was coming up to her.
She suddenly felt something grab onto her waist and looked back to see Johns, who had fallen free from his Cryo sleep. His blue eyes held hers for a moment as he glared at her.
"How the hell did you get out of you chains?" he asked loudly, the sounds of the ship being torn apart nearly flushing out what he had asked.
"Fuck you Johns, all I did was-" Suddenly being jerked around as she ship hit the ground, Johns was forced back and Shaylon was knocked back to the grated floor, her arms coming to try and hide her head. Everything went black.
