From "Soldier of 'Tween" by A. C. Ellis

*Look out!* Red-One's thought roared in Five-Red's mind, and at that instant movement to his left caught both his armor's and his own attention. As his suit's computer chimed in his ear, he drew his disrupter and spun around as best he could in the planet's excessive gravity, the mud, and his battle armor. What he saw brought a curse to his lips and sent a chill of terror rattling up his spine.

Less than fifty feet away, and closing with incredible speed, a slug thundered noiselessly through the minefield, skimming almost gracefully over the mud's surface. Miraculously, it avoided the pin-mines.

And it was coming straight for him....

This was the best campaign he had ever fought!
