Chapter 5: The Beginnings of an End.
Crystal hawks shot off into a distant Mars sky. Burt, Kyle and a handful of men crammed into a carte, that was connected to the Dropship.
“We go in 3!” The pilot ordered.
“Damn, what the hell is this? Were going to kill aliens, on mars? There Marians, s-shouldn’t we leave?” Kyle stuttered.
“No, they started this when firing on you in the Crystal reaper. We must retaliate!”
“Burt, theses guys aren’t communists. He is.” Kyle pointed to an officer. He waved back.
“You get it though! We defeat them now they might back off! Peace through Power!”
The pilot radioed in once again. “2 minutes till takeoff.”
“Lets do it boy ‘n girls!
Let us Rock,
and let us role!”
An other man chanted. Burt, with the others raised up there energy weapon. Kyle joined them.
“We fly in 1, lock your self’s down in their!”
“I signed up as a driver, not an member of the S.A.S, or the U.S.M.C, or even the U.S.C.M.C!” Kyle pleaded. But it was to late to go back, the Recon Dropship thrusters powered up, blowing martin sand all over the place. The cargo container they were sat in shook side to side.
“3, 2, 1. We have clearance from Eagle command. We are airborne!”
Suddenly the Pilot trusted the stick down, the Recon Dropship heaved upwards, the cargo container below shook like crazy! Then lifted up with the Dropship.
The pilot then drove the craft forward, towards the valley. Where the martins attacked.
The sky lit up with green flashes of energy weapons, that then shattered into Mars Mission automatic drills, ripping them into a billion peaces!
A man charged past the debris, his EVA suit attempting to slowing him down, but with all the adrenalin pumping through him it didn’t matter. Eventually he dived into a small building, and behind him an explosion rippled the walls.
“Where’s the reinforcements?”
“Echo said there be here soon Harry, calm down!”
An second explosion could be heard, as they both looked through a shattered window a Alien ship dived, and shattered on impact. Then. The mightily Claw tank immense tracks drove over it. Its missiles and pulse guns burning through the sky’s as it fired!
“World war three on mars hey Harry?” The man said to Harry.
“Yes Charles, World War 3!”
The sound of jet engines could be heard in the distance, but getting very close.
“This is it Charles. Alien reinforcements. Were dead!”
They both dreaded the next few moments, when they both new green energy charges would shatter the white roof and burn them alive.
Then the Jet engine should travelled right past them. And a large thud could be heard.
Harry and Charles both kneeled up, looking out of the broken window they could see an cargo container, standard Mars mission issue. Then 3 white helmets, and one Black painted helmet appeared out of it. There comm.‘s started to chatter, then a single voice could be heard.
“Rock and role!”
Harry and Charles looked into each others helmets, then they looked back, and 4 men charged out of the container, guns blazing. Among them was Kyle and Burt. Above them Alien ships disintegrated into pieces, as Crystal Hawks descended onto this newly created battlefield.
Then the Claw tank’s chest exploded as a Alien ship fired at it, suddenly the Clawed tank powered down, the only heavy ground defence they had just turned off. The pilot inside slammed panels, and heaved at levers. But with no avail. It was dead.
Then a faint call was heard over the comm.‘s. This is Mini miner 4. Their is only 1 martin ship left, Ground troops cannot destroy it. It’s in pursuit of me. Mayday!”
Burt fires his gun at the Alien ship, but the blue energy bolt just dissolved into its black and green hull. “We can’t put a dint in it!”
The ship then descended into an small canyon that lead away from the main valley.
“That’s where the Mayday message came from! Its going to obliterate the mini miner!” One of the men shouted.
He looked towards the shattered building, Harry had hooked his comm up to the main radio, and was calling for help.
“Come ‘on guys, we need you!”
“That’s a negative, Crystal hawk squadron is in pursuit of a Alien fighter that is retreating from the battle.”
Radio chatter ensured for a moment.
“Still negative. Try an different number. Over and out.”
Then the speaker in Harry’s helmet fell silent.
“DAMN!” Harry screamed.
Then Burt ran over, jumped through the shattered window and started to talk, Harry’s Speakers picked it up word for work.
“Look son, get a hold of the Recon Dropship that took us here. Got that?”
Harry looked at Burt’s Painted helmet.
“Yes, YES! That will work! But, your painted black helmet looks dumb.”
“I know, im washing it off tonight” Burt replied.
Not a moment latter Harry Called the recon Dropship. Which was eager to lend a hand.
The Mini Miner drove through a narrow canyon, looking in his mirror, checking what was behind him.
“Come on, come on!”
Then, the Alien ship appeared, fired off a shot that barely missed the moving mini miner.
“Ahhhhhh!” The Mini Miner driver shouted.
Then, he reached a clearing. He knew the canyon walls would not protect him anymore, and the Mini Miner didn’t have the speed to outrun a Arial ship.
The Alien ship appeared. Guns locked on to the Mini miner.
And then, for a second. The sky went black.
The driver looked forward as the Recon Dropship hook appeared before him, flying over his head it latched on to the mini miner and took it up to the heavens. Unfortunately, the alien ship was in pursuit and firing all guns.
“Hold on!” The pilot of the Recon ordered over him comm.
Before him laid a large rock formation, and behind him the Alien Attacker. The Pilot pulled up, almost vertical it passed above the large Rock formation, clearing it - and flying past it.
But the alien vessel was not so lucky. The alien gave a scream and collided with the rock’s. The explosion destroyed most of the formation, but not all of it.
The Recon Dropship headed away from the valley, towards the Eagle Command, and below it, Crystal Hawks & men walked and flied with it…
Back to the nearest thing they had to home….
