Children of Heaven, Chapter 23

The major looked down at his huge gauntlets; they were stained with blood. The freshest blots were from a young ensign who’d been skewered on the end of a bayonet. She’d never even seen what killed her, the alien creeping up behind her, invisible and impaling her on the end of its rifle. There were some sounds that you never thought a human could make until you heard them for yourself, straight from a dying throat. Leibowitz had heard too many of those. He’d killed the ensign’s murderer. Not very forgiving, but he hadn’t joined the Corps to proselytize mercy. Especially not to some tentacle-faced monstrosity that had just gutted a helpless girl like a fish. The Marine leaned back against the scarred bulkhead, listening to the comm channels as more of his people died. I hope this tub is worth it.

Patreon Update: Deathly Slumber and Weekly Prompt Thread

This week's prompts are 'i'll sleep when I'm dead' from Stormblessed, 'wake the dead' from Pehtrai D'Arkos and 'haunting' from Knightress, so it should come as no surprise that this week's tale is a bit on the spooooooooky and mysterious side, with a slumbering vampire and a vampire hunter.
