Angels of Death: Ch.9
Chapter 9: Two Steps Back
As the guardsman's transport ripped through the warp towards Iona-7, above the surface of the planet itself, something was already arriving. Due to its small size, it was able to bypass the scanning systems on the planet's surface, and soon it began to enter the planet's atmosphere.
That night, only a few guardsmen and technicians stationed at Fen-Wrath Mine saw the meteor like structure as it fell from the sky. Very few paid it any attention, and those which did soon lost interest, realising they had more important things to do that watch meteors.
Unfortunately, it wasn't a meteor.
The hunk of metal and debris, which was roughly the size of a land-raider, crashed into the vast jungle surrounding the mine. It ripped through the ground for a few meters, coming to an abrupt stop as it smashed into a tree.
Then there was an eerie silence, only broken by the smouldering from within and around the wreck. After a few seconds, the silence was broken again.
