Ambush by Greg Kuehn

The daisy chain exploded and they were upon us. The rusty copper stench of blood lingered amongst other smells: cordite, CLP, gunpowder, fear. We pushed through like white bloods cells through influenza, shooting and maneuvering. And when the fog cleared, we buried our dead and honored them with our lives.
