Part 4

"This should be it around this corner." Heero said, putting his map back. The five peaked around the corner, guns drawn and ready for anything. Finding it safe enough, they turned the corner and headed into what appeared to be the comm room. Or perhaps a better phrase would be what was left of the comm room.

The door was gone; the thick metal completely smashed in. Vines and leaves covered nearly every corner of the room, looping in and out of the smashed video screens and through the now broken keyboard. The comm machine was barley even recognizable amidst all the green. And what was worse, the vines were still moving, visibly growing and twisting at a fast pace, almost as if they were conscious of their new visitors. The only place where the vines didn't move was over the comm, which was burnt to a dark crisp, the scorched vines exhuming a putrid smell.

"What could've done this?" Wufei wondered aloud. The door was metal, and whatever broke it down had done so as if it were a straw house. They all stepped in, wary of the moving plants which slithered like snakes against the walls and ceiling.

Spent bullet casings crackled under their boots as they moved into the room. Trowa knelt down to inspect a few of them and was surprised at how many there were; the floor was practically covered! Whatever had broken down the door had been shot at and had still kept coming. There wasn't even any blood on the floor, so either the thing was wearing some pretty strong armor or the bullets hadn't done any damage.

"This thing is shot. It looks like someone burned it." Reported Duo after inspecting the scorched unit.

"No wonder we didn't get a picture back at headquarters." Quatre noted, his eyes filled with worry for his other two comrades. They were in the compound somewhere all alone with these plants, dogs and whatever else was roaming around. He hoped his space heart just wasn't sensing them, he didn't want to think of the other alternative.

Zechs and Noin may have been killed. It didn't look like there was any way out of the room, and whatever broke the door down looked like it could easily break a person apart.

"They have to be somewhere. They had to have escaped." Duo murmured softly as he looked around the room. He wasn't about to give up on his two friends yet. They had made it through plenty of sticky situations in the past and a couple of plants and some fucked up dogs seemed small compared to wars and gundam battles. To think that Noin and Zechs might have died from something so small, no, it just didn't make sense.

"Guys, look." All turned at Trowa's words. The Latin boy was standing at the corner just beside the comm machine, an area which was quite dark. Yet it was an opening, partially covered with vines.

"It must be a ventilation shaft." Wufei mused. He stepped closer to the opening and nearly tripped over something. Looking down he saw it was the metal cover for the ventilation shaft, large enough to cover a hole that they could easily have crawled through. "Someone was here alright."

"They must have went through there to the other side." Said Heero, picking up the covering.

"So all we have to do is go through there and move on."

"Yeah, but what about the plants?" Asked Quatre, pointing at the vines which had managed to weave through the vent.

Wufei merely stepped forward and pulled a couple rounds from his pocket. Loading his gun he glanced at the others, indicating for them to move back, and fired. The boys watched in surprise as flames appeared in the ventilation shaft where he fired. A single shot sent the plants slithering away quickly, while a second made sure they stayed away.

"I figured we'd need this. Besides, the comm is burnt. I figured the two of them used something with fire to get the plants away."

"Nice job Wu. Now, I should be able to fit through there. Heero, can you give me a boost?" Duo asked. The Japanese boy nodded, easily lifting Duo's light frame so he could climb inside.

Duo found the ventilation shaft to be quite roomy, it would have been easy for Noin and Zechs to fit throughl. Crawling on his own hands and knees he noticed a light at the other end and moved toward it.

"Good, I want to get out of this place as soon as possible." As he crawled, he noticed the bottom of the shaft was covered with a strange sticky substance. Duo squinted in the dim light and discovered it was a spider's web. He gasped as he felt something bite the back of his hand. Turning his hand over he found a small black spider digging into his skin. Quickly he brushed it off. He shivered as he felt more of them crawling on the outside of his flightsuit, attempting to bite through the thick fabric.

Duo crawled as fast as he could, not worrying about anything else but getting out of the shaft. He ran into more spider webs, discovering them to be stretched out across the shaft, so he used his hand to clean them away, attempting to keep the spiders from his face and hair. As he neared the other end he gave a yelp as one of the spiders managed to bite through his flightsuit and get his leg. Was it just his imagination or were they getting bigger?

"Ouch!" Duo swatted away one that painfully bit into the side of his face.

"Duo...you all right?" He heard a voice echo through the bug-infested tunnel.

"Yeah!" He called back as he continued to crawl. Finally, after what seemed like ages, he reached the other side. Jumping out of the shaft he danced around, trying to shake off all the remaining spiders, or at least swat them away. He picked the webs from his hair and off his body and face. He shivered as he saw the little bugs crawl away.

"Note to self...take a long shower when we get back." He had little bloody marks on his cheeks and on his hands from the spiders. He turned to call the other guys.

"HEY!!! Do NOT come this way! There are spiders everywhere and they bite hard!" Duo yelled back through the tunnel, his voice echoing.

"What? We can't get separated Duo. This place is too big and too dangerous." Quatre called back.

"It's O.K. I'll be fine. I'll just check things out on this side. Besides, we have a mission to do. The sooner we find Zechs and Noin and find out what the hell happened here the sooner we can leave."

"He's right. We have to finish our mission." Agreed Heero, walking out of the room.

"Where are you going?" Wufei asked him.

"The map can give us an idea as to where Duo is. We should get moving so we can meet him on the other side." And with that, Heero left the room.

"Be careful Duo, we'll be over there soon." The other three boys left.

"O.K." Duo left to explore on his own.


Heero led the group as fast as he could, eager to reach Duo in the shortest time possible. He'd be a fool to try and lie and say that he wasn't worried about the braided baka. Not to mention that this place seemed to be getting worse with every turn. First the acid burning through the ship, then the plants crawling over everything, then the dog which looked like it was rotting away. And then Duo saying something about biting spiders? He had a feeling that these creatures weren't the only things the place had to offer. He didn't like the idea of Duo being on his own. Not at all.

"You better be all right when we get to you Duo," he murmured under his breath. Picking up his pace he turned a corner and came to a stop. The other three pilots paused behind him as soon as they noticed what was lying across the ground, blocking their path.

A body...
