Page a Day: One Hundred Sixty Nine

            Ash was pallid when I arrived. “Five, six tiers up when it happened,” he said. “Nogilian a few higher. They had to break. I couldn’t...they’re all mixed –”

            “What?” I asked. “What’s happening, Ash?”

            “They see us, Guardian! Chameleon doesn’t work anymore. They see right through it, like somebody flipped a switch. Everyone’s stretched out. Taking fire from all directions, especially the tiers above. Ki’s fighting man to man, Nogilian’s pinned down. Their heatwhips – our men don’t know how to fight them. They just get tied up. They’re getting torn apart up there.”
