We entered the solar system and got into position. John dropped us off at the pick up site and flew off to avoid being his by all the fire. We got the device in place and started it up. What we didn’t expect to happen was that the ground was going to shake the ground with each pulse it sent out. We came under fire and eventually when the device had the reading on the prison John blew a hole into the ground and we jumped down into the prison.
The room we dropped was set up like some medical bay but the tools that had been scattered about by the collapse of the ceiling said otherwise. It was a torture chamber and it was disgusting. We made our way further into the prison. We found an incinerator along with a storage closet. As we began to open the doors we were ambushed by a woman who appeared as if she had been merged with a beetle.
We dealt with her and then began searching the rooms for the siblings. We found them but not before we found a man whose limbs had been pinned to the wall with large nails and his tongue cut out. Drake pulled them off of him and set him aside with his quilt set over him. Alice, Drek, and Zane King were not in good shape. We gathered them up along with the other man after opening all the cell doors and prepared to make our exit. As John was dropping down the ropes for us, Drake dropped all his spare guns to the few prisoners who were able to get out telling them to run.
The ride out was terribly. Drake broke his hand as soon as we took off, Joseph almost fell to his death twice, dislocated his shoulder, I was smashed into a building, and we were almost shot down. But we made it thanks to John and Anya. We returned to the Fallen Angel and made our exit from the system.
