:: Spartan 123 reporting. I am being held captive by the Covenant on a Cruiser. My destination is unknown. But I do believe that we have passed the Yoction Nebula. I have barely stayed alive. The hierarchs, as they are called, have no idea of our existence. The Elites have kept us alive feeding us scraps. I have not determined their reason, but I do believe that if we are found out, the hierarchs will kill us, and the Elites responsible. Please find me. I am sending this from the Covenant Battle net. I hope I am not found out. Over and out ::

Journal Entry
Spartan 123
Entry Start

It's been two years. Tomorrow is our anniversary. I can't wait to see what he got me. I know we're not supposed to love each other. I think it's natural though. No matter how much they suppressed our sex drive, we still love each other. We probably would have been failed back then, if it weren't for our separation until 2 ½ years ago. We should be rejected now, they can read this when ever they want. But we haven't been, so we must do some good for them. But that doesn't matter. I can't wait to see what he got me. If he didn't, it's okay, it's hard to get each other stuff when we're like this. I wonder what it'll be like when we retire. I haven't seen his face yet! And he hasn't seen mine! Well that's just not right. It's been two years. Well, I want to see it tomorrow. I need to see it tomorrow. For now, I'm going to sleep. Good night.

Battle Readout

Command Post E-12, in control of the A.C.S.E. (Atlantis Central Space Elevator), was ambushed at 0825 hours. Covenant rushed out of the space elevator, taking the two privates by surprise. Pvt. Walley was killed immediately, being stuck with a plasma grenade. Pvt. Harkins escaped, warning Lt. Spurn and Sgt. Marks of the ambush. Sgt. Marks and Pvt. Harkins stood guard at the command post, while Lt. Spurn went to get the three Spartans in their sleeping quarters. When he got there, only Spartans 138 and 045 were present. He took them to the ambush. Sgt. Marks was dead, plasma burns on his body. Pvt. Harkins was missing. Spartan 138 was ordered to leave the premises to find Spartan 123 and Pvt. Harkins. Spartan 045 was ordered to keep guard, as the Covenant were no where to be seen. Lt. Spurn checked to make a radio connection with Spartan 123. The connection failed. Lt Spurn left Spartan 045 to search the Space Elevator. After reaching the Space Elevator, Lt. Spurn again tried to make radio connection. This time Spartan 123 reported, as well as the other Spartans. Minutes later radio connection with Lt. Spurn was lost.
