›As the burning longsword flew straight into the ground from the earths atmosphere, a large battle ensued in the remains of the area. Covenant and marines alike flew into the air from plasma and fragmentation grenade blasts. The sound of MA7B assault rifles and the clanging of the rounds hitting elite armor and the return volleys of plasma rifles were heard throughout the battlefield. This was all happening all around the area as neither a marine or covenant soldier paid attention to this red fireball screeching towards the ground until it was just above the battlefield and the soldiers took cover on their respective sides of the field. The grunts kept shouting"loooooook out its going to get us" and "ruuun away" as they ran to cower behind the elites who were running to get out of the way of the fireball. And then BOOOM it hit the ground spraying up dirt and blue blood from the unlucky grunt who couldnt run or was already dead. The marines and covenant didnt fight or say anything as they looked at the burning object before them. Then the burning hull opened to reveal a figure dressed in a green suit with black marks. The elites identified the object in their HUD displays as the "KIA" spartan who apparently didnt die and decided to retreat back to their forward fire base, with grunts trailing they ranback to location 360.786.910 a known covenant position. The commanding officer Capt. Yanwei Zhang shouted "marines go over and bring that thing to me on the double" so as the marines ran over to collect it the pelicans came roaring overhead to hover just above the LZ. Then a special India class dropship came and swept by the LZ and landed by the Longsword, picked the thing up and took off into the sun. As the marines boarded their craft to go back to the forward command base the Captain was dissappointed he didnt know what it was, but he was grateful that he was still alive after another bloody fight with covenant.

›"Sir we are receiving a transmission from the General." "On screen soldier." "Ah good afternoon Yanwei." "Good afternoon General." "So how did your battle go this morning?" "Well it was about the same as usual dead covenant and marines everywhere until that Longsword crashed into the battlefield. Any idea what that India dropship went and got?" "Well as you know this is a classified subject but i believe you are at liberty to know. So anyway here goes. The (thing) as you called it was actually the supposed dead Spartan-5 super soldier." " HOLY CRUDE! Sir you are actually telling me that the Spartan-5 made it off that halo thing before the Pillar of Autumn's engines overloaded and exploded?" " Yes, im afraid that you can't know anymore but you can know this, DO NOT tell anyone about this little incident. Understand soldier?" "Yes sir, This information is safe with me." "Over and out."
So that thing actually made it off that ring before it exploded, amazing.

›The master chief felt a little weary from his HALO experience but other than that he felt fine. The nurses were running about the ward tending to wounded soldiers who were of higher ranks. Then a nurse came by to see how he was doing. John told her was fine and that he didnt need anything at all. Then a group of soldiers showed up and the chief was off on another trip in an India dropship.
›John was sitting in his chair watching the general consult his joint chiefs of staff on what to do with him. Then one of them spoke up"sir we believe that you should be put back into battle ASAP so we have had our top scientists working on new equipment for you." "ok john you need to go down to the lab to get suited up for todays battle." " Yes sir!" As john walked out of the room the chiefs sat watching as the future of the USNC and the earth walked out of their room.
›Just as john entered the room all of the lab technicians froze and ceased to talk at all. Then the head technician walked up to him"Good afternoon sir." "Good afternoon." "I think you have some new equipment for me." "Yes sir we do and I think you will find it interesting. First we have your new MOJLNIR suit. It has an upgraded shield and better functions to it so i think you can take about five more hits, but i wouldnt test it ok?" "Ok." "Moving on we have your increased weapon capacity due to the added storage of your storage unit on your back. But i think you will find it most helpful that you can now carry 12 grenades and 3 guns. Then we have a new function: Cortana will be in your head but will be in a com. center instead of hardwired into you. Last but not least we have a new weapon for you: The Mach 5 it is a high powered Partical Accelerator that will shoot a beam out at about mach 5 or so. But be careful to look behind you or friends could get sucked in to the intake. It also can serve as a vaccum to eat grunts and shoot them at the elites or use your Melee attack to crack the skull of anything you hit in the head. well sir just suit up and go to the docking bay and you'll be off." "Thank you. Goodbye."
›As the marines were loaded onto their dropships the chief walked to his designated ship and climbed aboard felling the thrill once again for battle. The dropships left and started screaming across the lush prairie land of the African plains. the dropships landed in the middle of an intense battle that had been raging on since the morning. The chief hooped out and ran for cover.
