İİİİİAs the Master Chief floated off into deep space in his newly acquired Longsword Fighter, he wondered whether the Flood was completely annihilated. He kept thinking if the explosion could've killed their entire species. As he thought, he heard a loud noise coming from the cockpit door.

*Thump, Thump, Thump*

İİİİİHe reached down for his M90 Shotgun but he couldn't find it.

İİİİİ"Oh, shit," he thought.

İİİİİHe gazed over towards the door and saw cracks appear near the middle. He shifted his gaze a little towards the right and noticed a fire extinguisher on the floor. He got up out of his seat and ran quietly towards it. He picked it up and kneeled next to the door.

İİİİİ"Chief, I really don't think that's gonna hold up against whatever's outside that door," said Cortana.

İİİİİ"Cortana, shut up."

İİİİİHe took the chip from his helmet and threw it onto the seat.

İİİİİLarger cracks began to appear in the door. The Master Chief took a final look around the cockpit and noticed a glimmer off of a silver object directly across from him. He turned his head trying to make out the object's shape.

İİİİİHe finally made out the shape of the object.

İİİİİ"Oh, hell fucking yes, M6D."

İİİİİHe leapt forward with his fire extinguisher but was blown away when the door gave in. He shook it off and stared towards the door. 10 elites stood in the doorway, staring at the Master Chief.

İİİİİ"What the fuck."


İİİİİOne of the elites charged him and just as quick slumped to the ground. Two more charged at him. He leapt forward and quickly smacked both in the back of the head. He turned around and sprayed the remaining elites with the fire extinguisher. While they were still dazed he rolled over to the pistol, picked it up, spun around and fired exactly 7 rounds into the elite's heads.

İİİİİHe got up and saw that one of the elites was still breathing. He got his M6D up off the floor and whacked the elite just below what would be the brain stem.

İİİİİHe walked over to the pilot's seat where he had thrown Cortana but could not find her.

İİİİİ"Oh crap, oh damn, oh da..." he thought to himself.

İİİİİJust as he was completing his superfluous ranting, the Longsword accelerated into light speed heading towards Earth.

İİİİİ"Good ol', Cortana. Always one step ahead of me. Now, if only I could find her, I could show her how effective that fire extinguisher was on those elites," he said as his back slammed against the wall outside of the cockpit.

İİİİİ"Sir, we've got an unidentified Longsword fighter."


İİİİİ"20 minutes. Intercept?"

İİİİİ"Yes, send two Hummer aircraft to intercept."

İİİİİ"Ay, ay, el cap-i-tan."

*Over PA System*

İİİİİ "Requesting two Hummer pilots to intercept unidentified Longsword fighter."

*On Deck 7*

İİİİİ Two Hummer pilots stepped forward outside of the mess hall.

İİİİİ "Pilot Levy and Pilot Pesso reporting for requested duty, sir."

İİİİİ "Soldiers, your duty is to 1, intercept, 2, identify, 3a, guide down to landing pad or 3b, and shoot down if identified as enemy."

İİİİİ "Sir, yes, sir," was the quiet but yet resounding echo."

İİİİİ "Now move it out, double time," said Sergeant Chad Connors.

*5 minutes later*

İİİİİ "Lieutenant Matthew Levy is airborne."

İİİİİ "Lieutenant Eitan Pesso is also airborne."


İİİİİ "2 minutes," was the combined response.

İİİİİ "You ready Mr. Man," said Levy.

İİİİİ "Yup, I'm ready Cold Blood."

İİİİİ "Chief, wake up now. Hurry up."

İİİİİ "What is it, Cortana?" the Master Chief said groggily as he got out of the cryo tube."

İİİİİ "We're coming up on Earth in 10 minutes and we got two inbound Hummers."

İİİİİ "Let me just get my stuff ready. Be there in 5."

İİİİİ "UNSC Longsword Fighter, identify yourself," said Levy.

İİİİİ "This is UNSC AI Cortana from the Pillar of Autumn carrying a Spartan II, Master Chief. Requesting landing pad."
