The junkyard was finally in sight for Dave. On his back a lifeless hand dangled like an old rag from a backpack. His face covered in dirt and sweat, the body tightly snugged up against the wall. Fear filled eyes stuck into the front of his head with a constant nervous movement left and right around the corner.
His trembling hand squeezes his chest digging his fingers into the blood soaked shirt next to a holster that holds a never seen before gun. Its got lights flashing close to where a hammer should be and the grip is also lit up red along its length.
A sharp turn has him walk back into the small alley, his lips scatter random words in a mumbling fashion. “What the fuck… me… MIT… Why…? 24… Future… gone? Argggh!” A pull and rustle of his hair seemed to have calmed his anger a little right before he reached some dumpsters and kneels down in between them.
With his teeth grind together when he gets back up with an arm thrown around the hip of a woman. From underneath her blood stained pink hair one could notice a part of her right arm was missing just below the shoulder. She is dressed in a leather suit that has been shredded and torn in several places. It surely must have covered almost every inch of her body. Dave drags her feet across the street towards the corner he just scouted.
His body springs like a whip and throws the lady up a little higher on his shoulder. His left hand locks tighter around her one clove covered wrist. The pace of his walk is as fast as he can with her feet kept just above the ground to reduce drag and leave behind a trail. Beyond the gate he turns a fast right and leans against the wall.
Out of breath he pants, his head is tilted up towards the dark clouds that have started to cover the city. Deep breaths follow the shallow gasps till he reached a certain calm and turns his eyes towards the face of the lady. Her eyes are closed seemingly to be in a deep sleep. Her lips painted a purple like some kind of statement. Her skin dirty with black smudges and blood from the numerous scratches and cuts.
“Okay, now where to go… Think…” A burst of great amount of energy shoots through the sky, followed by a even darker shadow. The shape of a human with wings. “Shit I got to hurry”
Dave spots a large van and decides that it is where he should be going since buildings would be a to obvious choice in the first place. In a final dash he reaches the van and opens the doors and stepping in holding the woman in her armpits he drags her in. Laying her down and stare at the gaping hole in her suit. Inside a sparks are flying back and forth from the exposed wires. A small fuse like container is shot and shows some tiny blue balls. “Before she passed out she mentioned something about repair the energy cells. But why me…? What is going on…?” Dave throws back his head into the back wall of the van. “I can’t fucking do this.”

A new idea spawned from this little Crow’s brain. Not sure how it will go or even where it will go. But I would like to hear your thoughts.
