Sabertooth - Chapter 9
Chapter 9: Chaos
The residents of the town summoned to the church learned from the sheriffs and pastors that someone about to attack the town where they lived.
Then the men organized themselves spontaneously, picked up their weapons and prepared to go to the entrance of the town to build a line of defense. Of course, some people choose to go home and want to stick to their homes.
Since there are those who choose to resist, there are naturally those who choose to run away, but those who want to run soon find themselves unable to run away.
Because the attackers have surrounded the entire town and launched an offensive, and the residents who went to the entrance of the town to prepare a defense line were bloody slaughtered.
Shotguns couldn’t stop the attackers on horseback raids, and they hadn’t had time to stop the way into the town with something.
This caused the attackers to quickly rush into the crowd on horseback and began mass killings. After slaughtering these people began to wreak havoc in the town again.
They killed every living thing that appeared in their sight, whether it was a man, a woman or a dog.
Then tossed torches ignited every building within sight. On this dry night, the townhouses were almost at their point.
The residents of the town, who chose to stick to their homes, were either burned to death with their houses, or rushed out of the fire and then were shot dead by the attackers.
Of course, some people also hid in the basement, but the attackers also blocked the exit of the basement with firewood, so they died inside with smoke.
In fact, the attackers often used smoke to hunt the prey in the cave. The prey in the cave was either died in the cave or they rush out and fall into the encirclement of the attackers.
But no matter what kind, the final ending is inevitable, even if they not came out, it will lose its resistance ability, and eventually died.
Now, the residents of the town have become their prey. They hunted their prey indiscriminately, and laughed as they achieved their results.
The residents of the town seemed to be resolute, but they were powerless. After all, they are just ordinary immigrants. Although some of them have joined the army, the weapons in their hands are too simple.
And the number is not proportional. Thousands of attackers rushed into this small town, and the resistance of the residents of the town was defeated.
In the end, all the residents gathered in the only stone building in the center of the town: in the church, they built a strong enough defense line to resist the attack of attackers.
And the manpower is enough. The town residents near the center quickly gathered in the church after discovering the misfortune of the peripheral residents, and used the time to build a simple line of defense.
All they have to do now is to stick to the US army and come to the rescue. After all, the fire in the town will definitely attract the attention of the nearby garrison and other towns.
In fact, the attackers were also aware of the townspeople’s intentions. They mobilized a large portion of their personnel and began to concentrate on attacking the church.
Others are divided into teams to clean up the remaining residents and houses. The short answer is to kill and set fire.
And one of the teams came to the position of Father Creed’s house, and at this time our protagonist has realized that the situation is wrong.
He untied the iron chain on his body and came to the door of the basement. He stuck it on the basement door and listen the outside movement.
He heard the roars and cheers of the attackers, the curses and screams of the residents of the town, and he smell the barbecue and wood burned in the air.
As for why he was still locked in the basement, it was because Father Creed and his wife took their weapons and ran to the church as soon as they heard the bell.
As the former military officer and one of the wealthiest people in the town, Father Creed was elected as the commander of the defense church.
There was no way to get away and let Victor out, and it would be even more impossible for Mrs. Creed to go back alone.
Also, Father Creed and Mrs. Creed felt that the iron door would protect Victor.
After all, the attackers would not specifically go to open the basement for the residents of the town. They came to kill and set fire to revenge, not to rob.
What’s more, this kind of locked basement is obviously not likely to have people inside. They would not spend energy to break through the inspection.
And with their son’s high IQ, it’s unlikely that he will actively attract the attention of attackers.
So in the end, both of them chose to stay in the church and wait for the rescue of the US government army with other residents of the town.
Father Creed and other men began to fire from various windows and lines of defense against the attackers, who attacked the church from all sides.
It must be said that the men in the west all have good marksmanship. After every few shots, an offensive attacker fall.
As the distance from the church became shorter, the proportion of attackers, who fell with gunfire increased. But it’s not just the church that has good shooters.
The attackers, who fought Americans all year round also have a lot of good sought-afters, and because of the perennial hunting, the sharp shooters, who are good at using bows and arrows are also endless.
After the shooting, both sides suffered heavy losses, but the situation was even worse for the people in the church.
Because, they are far fewer than the attackers outside, and a attacker died outside, they immediately had companions to fill their gaps.
Fortunately, the movements they alarmed the residents of another town not far away, and the residents of that town sent people to the nearest US government garrison to call for help.
Of course, they also sent people to the periphery of the town to observe the situation, and found that nearly 10,000 attackers were here, so they dismissed the plan to organize people to come to the rescue.
Even some cowardly residents have already packed up their homes and made plans to escape at any time.
As long as people live, there will be nothing. As for the residents of the town next door, only God can help you. We pious people have to keep useful bodies to serve the Lord, so we will not die.
Even if there are relatives and friends there, because of the absolute gap in numbers, they chose to wait for the arrival of the US military, and then went to rescue together.
However, it is clear that Father Creed can’t wait for rescue this time because they are in big trouble.
When the attackers saw that the church could not be attacked for a long time, and they also suffered heavy losses, and if they were to waste time like this, they would probably be slain by the reacting US forces. So the attackers chief made a decision.
He send a team of death squads, use explosive barrels to open the door of the church or one of the walls, and solve the rats hiding in the church once and for all.
“Quick! Focus your fire on those guys holding gunpowder barrels!”
Father Creed at the commanding height soon discovered the attackers chief’s plan and began to order everyone.
He even shot a gunpowder barrel himself, and turned the attackers in that direction to turn the horse upside down, and had to temporarily retreat to repair.
But the attackers quickly solved the problem. They ignited a lot of fire nearby, and then added wet firewood to cover the sight of the archer in the church with thick smoke.
Finally, a lucky attacker broke a window in the east wall of the church with three shots.
Although this window has been blocked by heavy objects for a long time, but it can’t block the explosive barrel that can open the mountain and crack the rock.
Everyone predicted that the wall of the church was only a matter of time.
The east wall of the church quickly collapsed, the archer above the wall fell to the ground, and then the attackers rushed in to sent them to God.
Finally, the battle has entered the stage where short soldiers meet. All the active town residents in the church took up arms and began to resist.
After all, they knew that this time, the other party would not leave them alive, and if they will not rebel, they would be die. So why not resist until the end, maybe they will stick to the rescue.
But until the last person fell, the rescue of the US military did not arrive …
Father Creed held the revolver in one hand and the knife in the other to the last moment. He was not knocked down from the front, but a small attacker, who attacked him with a spear was behind him.
Father Creed, who was stabbed in the kidney was then cut down by a crowd of attackers, as his consciousness drifted away, the last thing he thought of was his son, Luther, who had been dead for many years.
Then it gradually turned into another face, which looked similar.
“Victor, I hope you will survive…”
Mrs. Creed was more fortunate. When the east wall was blown up, she was nearby, so she was also blown out, and was buried under a broken wall.
Afterwards, she was finally ignored by the attackers, who examined the bodies.
Because of the American army, the attackers began to scream and gather their companions, preparing to evacuate.
After all, their purpose has been achieved: they send the message to the enemy that they will defend their homes and land until the last moment of life.
When Victor heard the sound of the explosive barrel exploding, he expected that something might have happened, and as Father Creed died, the pain in his heart made him realize that his parents might be in danger.
Then he stretched out his claws and began to attack the closed basement door frantically. Although it has been reinforced by iron skin, it still can’t stop his claws.
The movement Victor broke through the basement door and rushed out, he also attracted a nearby attackers squad.
Although the blood bleed all over the place, he didn’t feel anything at all. He just wanted to find his parents and see how is their situation.
However, he hadn’t come and took two steps before he felt his head faint, and then his eyes went dark, so he didn’t know anything.
