Ghost story

Extracts from this document...


Ghost story It is the year 3000 ad. Mankind has progressed. They have explored so far into space, yet there is so much they do not know. They have found that mankind is not alone, and technology has advanced to unprecedented levels. However. With new advances, come new problems, and Earth is threatened by menacing Martians from far off worlds. So, Earth is protected by a elite squadron of warriors, known only to the public as B-19. However, the malign influence of the supernatural never leaves, and the ghost of a court marshalled sergeant is back to wreak havoc, and seek ultimate revenge! Colonel Jack Gardner was a small middle-aged man, his face scarred from years of conflict. However a boyish glint sparkled in his eyes, like a window to his immortal soul, still in pristine condition and unaffected by the combat he faced. He lowered the Z-2 fighter down to 20,000 feet. ...read more.


'Stupid draft!' thought Kyp as he made his way agonisingly slowly to the door, stumbling slightly as he made his way to the door. He shut it, and it flew open again. Bewildered, he closed it and trooped back to bed. 'Kyp!' a gravely voice boomed out of the abyss. He spun around. Nothing was there, no apparent source. His heart raced.

However, a seed of doubt was firmly planted in his thoughts, and was threatening to germinate at the slightest provocation.

You must exact my revenge. You must kill him! Suddenly, Kyp stopped thinking. He robotically got out of bed. He advanced down the corridor. The clap of his boots echoed off the floor. He reached his target. His eyes glazed over, no emotion was present. He smashed his foot into the door, splintering the wood. He barged through. Jack was on his feet easily, startled. Kyp smashed a fist into his nose, the pain jarred up his arm. Jacks nose squashed like a tomato. He went down to his knees. Blood trickled down his face. A right boot connected to his stomach. Jack keeled back in agony. Another swift kick toppled him. Kyp knelt on his chest, his hands were bloody. They connected onto his throat. Jack struggled. Kyp held on. He weakened, then his body went limp. A second later armed guards burst in. They fired a shot to Kyps head. Darkness engulfed him. ...read more.
