We both looked back, fear gripping hold. Without hesitation, the dog ran and grabbed Elias; throwing him against the train and knocking him out cold. I got out of the train and looked at it. It was inching closer to Elias; going to kill him.
"You fucking bitch!" I screamed at the top of my lungs, and before it had the chance to respond, I unloaded a shotgun clip into its head; blowing it clean off. The dog fell to its knees, and then three giant, vile, tentacles came out of its neck
"CURRENT CHARGE STATE: 15%," The speaker announced. The dog then, somehow, howled a more blood curdling scream as it started running towards me; sending the red liquid everywhere. I went to shoot one of the tentacles, but missed. The thing gripped me; almost choking me with its disgusting hold on me. I pulled out the handgun and quickly shot the tentacle clean off. It let me go sending me falling flat on my ass. The dog fell to its knees.
"CURRENT CHARGE STATE: 30%," The speaker announced again. The disgusting creature got back up, still targeting me. I shot the other tentacle with a full handgun clip, and it had some effect. The dog staggered backwards a little, but kept heading closer. Not caring it was being shot at, like it was determined to kill me and waste my fucking body. I reloaded my shotgun quickly, with a full clip, not before it slapped me to the ground. I started feeling weak and dizzy. My vision started going double; seeing two of the dog. As if one wasn't bad enough. I still got back up. With my leg injury from the other day being worsened, I started limping. Walking slower. The thing was only a few feet away from me. I unloaded another shotgun clip again into the second tentacle. The tentacle fell off, and the dog fell to its knees again.
"CURRENT CHARGE STATE: 60%," The speaker yet again announced.
"Come the fuck on, charge faster, you son-of-a-bitch!" I yelled at it. The dog howled again, piercing my ears and covering me even more in it's disgusting fluids. "Fuck you!" I hollered at it. I went to reload my gun again, but the thing slapped the gun out of my hands and grabbed me. It started choking me again. This time with a deeper, firmer, grasp. I was feeling the life drain out of me faster and faster. The fucking dog, or whatever the fuck this thing was, would not let up. I felt the color drain out of my eyes, then my eyes started rolling in the back of my head. I gave the last little bit of energy I had and kicked the tentacle full force; knocking it clean off. I fell down for a few seconds. Elias came back to it, and we both got up; walking back into the train's conductor booth. There we waited for the damn thing to finish charging.
"CURRENT CHARGE STATE: FULL POWER! GET READY FOR THE NEXT STOP: LAS VEGAS, NEVADA." We both sat down in the two seats, as the train started up. "ESTIMATED TIME UNTIL ARRIVAL: 2 HOURS AND 30 MINUTES." I looked at my watch, it was 2:36 PM. Just in time. The train started up, and left the station, going faster than I expected. Leading us to our next destination.
