-tooth and nail Shrike continued to fight back, if it was one other thing the two shared in common, sheer stubbornness was it, even against clear odds that you could not win he would still fight, but knowing when to and when to not was also important. Some times it was a good choice to seek the better side of valor.

He had come so close to he's objective yet still so far. Backed against a ruined steel wall, the only surviving creature was making a attempt to crawl away, shattered by the blast of the grenade. The lone figure raised the rifle to take aim and pulled the trigger...but instead of a shot being fired..was a deafening silence, a sound no one wanted to hear from a firearm, the silent click click of nothing.

Shrike pulled the mag out of the weapon, pulling the bolt breach back and discovered the truth...he was out of ammo..completely bled dry of ammunition, the situation just went from bad to "Oh fuck" Scrambling like crazy only to find he's side arm missing, remembering that only mere minutes ago the figure had given the Lynx he's back up weapon.

Checking every pouch upon he's assault web gear he found nothing, every magazine had been spent, every bullet had been fired and all he had left now was a measly combat knife, completely and utterly useless against these things.

Then seemingly out of no where a gunshot went off, Shrike thought maybe he's rifle discharged a shot by mistake only to remember he was out of ammo, some one else near by fired a shot, was it G.U.N finally discovering the area ? Clean up force ? Or something else entirely different.

Who ever fired the shot managed to strike a head shot on the fleeing beast putting a end to next wave, to he's shock, a bit of frustration and mostly relief the one who had pulled the shot was...surprise surprise the Lynx, she had not followed he's advice and left the complex but rather trudged all the way to find he's position and...delivered the final kill shot to the creature.

While Shrike wanted to say "Why the hell didn't you get out!" He was more then actually happy to see her..being alone in this..hell was not pleasant even more so now that he was virtually defenseless.

"Wasp! How in the....argh never mind  nice shot...I was hoping you would leave the facility but it seems our stubbornness is pretty....on par probably should of told you HOW to use the gun but it seemed to get the job done..."

-Shrike looked over at the acid which had eaten 3/4 of its way into the shoulder plate armor then back towards the Lynx, only to turn he's head back looking up at the large reinforced door, so it was not a wall he had backed into it was some type of max security bulk head door, above it was displayed in bold letters "Object 201 holding vault", this might be it, this may be where the artifact is located, a end to the entire journey right here, only issue was...Shrike had no explosives to blow the door open and you could forget about getting access from the door.-

"Man....that is a big ass door....it's a sure bet that artifact is behind it.....you are in no shape to exert yourself with this. While I know you could take out the doors in your current state I wont risk it.....hmmm idea....rip off one of those...creatures arms and bring it here to me."

Shrike didn't seem better than her aside from the fact he was able to stand without much effort. He was still hurt from the previous encounter, his armour had been half melted and seing all the traces of ammo on the ground on her way here, Mayhem guessed that she had made a good decision in following her partner. Shrike was still minded on his mission more than his life, it must have been really important. Lucky for them, they seemed to have reached the end of their journey, Shrike's target lying behind these massive doors. Hadn't the lynx used all her juice in a previous room, she would have busted that door without breaking a sweat. For now she could barely even lift herself from the ground.

She hadn't seen the properties that the beast had, so it came as a wonder to why Shrike wanted an arm from one of the corpses. But Mayhem wasn't in a position to argue, so she excuted herself. The task turned out more tidious than she'd expected. She pulled as hard as she could on the arm, yet she only succeeded in pulling the entire corpse toward her. Her patience soon ran out with a growl in her throat. Baring her teeth and clenching her jaw, she pulled the arm up and tomped on the elbow with her heel as hard as she could. It took only a few violent hits for a wound to tear open and some more to dislocate the bone from its socket. 

Pulling hard, the member soon came off as Mayhem fell on her back with it flying over her head, landing near Shrike. A blood trail followed the member and splattered all over the floor, some drops landing right next to the lying lynx. The creature's blood also contained acid properties and the droplets started to melt the metal floor. Mayhem ears dropped back on her head at the sight, counting herself lucky she didn't received any of those on her. However, it did give her an idea on what Shrike might do with the severed limb. 

The treasure hunter propped herself back on her knees looking at Shrike work his magic to open the door and, finaly, seeing what this twited maze was hiding.

-Boy was he lucky she showed up when she did, with he's ammo mags completely dried up, should the monsters return, all he would be able to fight them off with would be a simple combat knife, and a close quarter engagement with these monsters for him would be a death sentence.

Tho he was quick to see she was not holding up well, and the longer spent here could very well tip the scale and possibly even cause her death, Shrike had to finish this as fast as possible, get in destroy the artifact and get out before the situation would get any worse.

Shrikes armor had done it's job but at a great cost, the armor had been badly damage and the acid even managed to make minimal contact with he's skin which of course burnt like hell but thankfully the helmet prevent him from showing any true pain.

Course with the bulk head doors the thickest thus far it was  sure bet this was the place, but the Lynx lacking energy and Shrike all out of explosive devices he had to come up with a new way to get inside. It was a long shot but it was all he had to go on this point.

Shrike had tasked the Wasp with the retrieval of a severed arm, why he wanted this at first was not yet explained, he waited by the door for her to collect the item. Which she did fairly quickly to he's surprise, as the severed arm calm flying landing only a meter away from he's position leaving a trail of acid like blood in its wake.-

"Avoid the Acid....shit burns like hell, ate through some of my armor like it was nothing...skin feels like its on fire....good job! Now to see if my gamble pays off."

-Shrike knelt down picking up the severed arm, seemed as it was a human arm judging by the lack of fur and pigment, he carefully dusted or at least attempted to clear any muck or filth from the hand of the arm, before taking it over to a small display planet, Shrike careful opened the fingers of the said hand before placing it firmly down on what was a screen.

5 seconds in the automated scanner begins to sweep over the hand that was placed down, a few seconds go by until a triple beep is heard followed by a prompt of a computer ladies voice above the main door.-

"DNA confirmed, access granted...welcome Dr Ventus"

-Suddenly large bulk pistons released as the twin massive doors began to open, the arm had served its purpose and Shrike tossed it aside no longer needed , as the doors fully opened...there it was glowing in its ominous yellow orange hue, the spherical object hovering in a small glass containment system, the sphere was bright in the center much like a mini sun, a strange and eery almost whisper surrounding it.-

"There it is...the Harbinger sphere....the artifact capable of sustaining life after death....now..be careful the object can mess with your head...make things appear different then what they are. I heard its even capable of altering a beings personality the longer one spends near it. We gotta crack that case and destroy it....once that is done..we can get hell out of here....and leave this place where it belongs....Since you are the hunter...might as well take a look at it...chances are..you never going to see any thing quite like it again."

-Shrike gestured to the Lynx to have a look at the artifact floating before her.-

Ok, he didn't go the way she thought he would, but his technic to open the door was much more practical than what Mayhem had in mind. In mere seconds, the bulky metal door opened, sharp light pouring out of the gap. Mayhem rose the back of her hand to shield her eyes as a dark shape was starting to form amongst the bright glow. It took some time to notice that all this yellow-orangish light was actually coming from the small object. The lynx lowered her hand to see hovering inside a prison of glass some kind of orb. There was a strange vibe surrounding it, like it had a heart beat, its breath flowting all around giving the impression it was...alive ?

Mayhem slowly rose to her feet, carefully walking toward the ominous sphere while listening to Shrike's explanation. So this was it ? The treasure she heard of was this orb able to to keep one immortal. Anyone would one to hold it, it promised such power, such eternity. Something that could give anyone the opportunity the create a powerful legacy. Such power, Mayhem thought...need to be destroyed. Any evil villain could stroll down here and obtain it, making life on mobius a real living hell. The lynx didn't look forward to another reign like when this Infinite took over the planet alongside Eggman. And distorting reallity ? That sounded like the monsters they encountered earlier in the base. With time, Mayhem learned that profecies and legends were usualy not what it seemed, meaning she could not trust that the orb's warning was only psychological. 

They would have to be careful when destroying it. She hoped it wouldn't blow up since she would not be able to run away due to her condition. How would they even detroy such a thing ? Mayhem hoped Shrike had a good plan to get rid of it.


"Just standing here", she strated mezmerized by the orb, "I can feel its power. It's nothing compared to the chaos emeralds but I can certainly feel a similarity."

She swallowed hard. "Do you know how we can destroy it without dying or loosing ourselves like the mutants we encountered ?"

-A artifact looming in real time, a dark object from a dark past that Shrike was all to familiar with, a past that had thrown every thing he ever knew out the window one that destroyed his old life becoming the freelancer he is today. The spheres of Cydonia were a stark reminder that, true evil never really dies.

The armored figure let the Lynx approach but his warning was true, the artifacts had amazing properties but terrible unforeseen consequences, whic his why the spheres were hunted down to be destroyed in the first place, for the true power of them if brought together could unleash a horrific force the likes of this world could never understand or defeat.

Shrike noted the Lynx's remark of the power of it, sure they were not on par with the Chaos emeralds, but this artifacts the 7 spheres held there own power a potential to rival them, tho her feeling the energy was a sign the artifact was at least getting a feel for the Lynx and perhaps after long enough time may attempt to convince her to take the artifact for herself. 

"Take a hard good look Wasp, this may be the only time you will see one of these, once destroyed the artifact will return to its home dimension of Cydonia, so in a sense we can not destroy them only send them some where, where beings here can never get their hands on it. 

After the Arkgate crisis was over the 7 spheres were scattered across the planet, I hope to one day find them all...and rid them from this planet...before it has a chance to reopen the portal and let them back in.

-Shrike had a pretty simply solution to break the artifact, far more simple then originally believed, Shrike proceeded past the Lynx grabbing each side of the sphere in his hands, suddenly the artifact began to burn bright with its orange yellow like glow as the energy began to be translated onto him, before the artifact could affect him Shrike threw it to the ground using his left foot to come crashing down to shatter the orb.

As if made with glass the sphere broke effortlessly, the power with in unleashed in a streaks of glowing orange energy swept over the armored figure lifting into the air above him before vanishing in a spark of light.- 

".....It's done....I dont know if that effected me at all..but time will tell....Wasp...our job here is done...lets get the hell outta here."
