“No!”, I screamed, raising my gun, but I was too late. My hot-blooded priestess had thrown herself in from the lead death of the minions of Dark Adonis. Red flowers of blood blossomed on her dusky bosom as the bullets penetrated her virginal flesh. She fell against me groaning, gasping for breath as though in a fever. I continued to fire rounds into soft flesh of the vile henchmen, whose numbers shrank rapidly in a constant barrage of noise and blood. Finally, the last of the wretched, sub-human creatures had succumbed to my trusty rifle. My priestess, barely alive, whispered a final word of farewell, and collapsed at my feet. So I stood there, alone, at the bottom of the mines of Kufimba, with the corpses of the vile brood scattered around the shaft and the blood of my beloved, my poor, doomed princess of a lost race, smeared upon my khaki knickers.
