"Thanks." He looked up and saw Impact breaking one in half over her knee. Thesecond lay headless beside her. A voice ﬁlled his head. Control was responding to hisupdate.
"Alpha this is Control, reinforcements en route E.T.A two minutes." Ignition steppedover the lifeless bodies and pressed his ﬁnger to his ear.
"Rodger that Control." Ignition moved across the rooftop to his partner. Impactpulled a glove further down tightening the ﬁt around her ﬁngers.
"Only eight of them this time, two shy of their usual probe squad."
"I know, they've an unusual compound in their system too. They're running hotterthan usual." Ignition tapped the side of his goggles and they beeped in response. "I'mrunning a trace now." Behind him another group of Inﬁnity Warriors silently appeared,another eight cyborgs stood and watched them from across the roof. Impact was the ﬁrstto spot them and stepped out from behind Ignition. She knew he could handle himself butwould always be the ﬁrst on the line, not because of her unbreakable skin but because shecould never stand by and watch someone else sacriﬁce themselves if she was there. Itwasn't in her nature to sit idly by. As ignition turned following her round another eightcyborgs appeared beside the previous set.
"You got anymore tricks in that coat of yours?" Impact asked without taking her eyesoff the cyborgs. Ignition reached under his coat and pulled a second billy club out from theholster at the small of his back rotating it around his wrist join feeling the weight of it in hisoff hand.
"Plenty, you?" He glanced at her out the corner of his eye. She didn't look at himshe looked straight ahead as another group appeared in front of them. A slight smileformed on her face.
"I don't need any, my girls are more than enough for these toy robots." Impactcracked her knuckles and rolled the tension out of her neck.
"You do remember what these things are don't you?" Another group appeared, thirtytwo deadly cyborgs stood silently and watched them. "And they're still coming."
"Don't worry Andy, I'll protect you." She looked at him, the smile still on her face. Hecould not hold the grin back. There was a chance that they wouldn't make it off this rooftopalive but she had a way of loosening him up, he had a habit of doubting his abilities, shegave him conﬁdence.
"I can't believe you still call them your girls." He laughed and rotated the billy clubaround again. In unison the Inﬁnity Warriors spoke their recorded speech.
"We will not be stopped. We will never end."
