As he waited he felt something grab his shoulder
as he looked at the foul body of the crew member another elevator stopped and opened further down the corridor and two more decayed crew members got out and shambled towards him. Stern with out hesitation opened fire blowing out the first ones chest, the other by head shot. he got into the elevator and headed up, hoping to get towards the bridge.
Quickly he reloaded his pump action shotgun.
slowly he edged himself so he could see around the corridor to where the light was coming from. He saw three more rotting crew members banging at an elevator door.
Stern opened the elevator which the crew where attacking. slowly getting inside, he looked down at himself and found that he was covered in foul smelling gore. He pressed the keypad to take him to the top, the door jams halfway and it takes a few moments before he manged to get the doors to close properly. Then his ascension began.
