we drove on and crossed the church. the aliens were destroying it. they fired at us, but we were too fast and were soon well out of sight.
when we arrived in durham,there were cars everywhere.suddenly as we parked up, 2 little hover bike red vehicles flew up to us! "fire"! i told john and he blasted at a cobra and it fell dead. i hurled a grenade and the alien occuping i was history. we boarded the bikes and drove on.
we parked up near a row of shops. peaple were screaming and running. many were dead on the floor. "this should be safe"! i muttered with a sigh of relief. john nodded in agreement. suddenly we heard mechanical whirring and we gazed in horror as a massive beetle machine lurched toward us!
the machine had 4 long legs and troops were on its top. the control room was located at its head. "what the hell is that"! cried john. easily 40 foot high, it began to glow at the front. "run"! i cried just in time to dodge the blast. our bikes were demolished and a row of shops were history. 2 alien ships flew around. they made noises like hissing and laser wings. we opened fire and they went down from multiple hits to their fuselage. suddenly,i spotted a platoon of the big blue ones with guns charging for us! we fired at the aliens, until the machine was in the direction of ferryhill. their shields all flared. "frag out"! i cried and i hurled a grenade. the blast thinned them to 5. "charge"! john cried and we blasted and ran. an alien just missed me and i shot it. the alien warrior fell with a cry of angiush. when we had ended them, we walked on."wanna call that machine a scarab"? asked john. "seems relevent" i said and we walked. "we have to find some cover" i said. i looked behind me and noticed the scarab was heading in our direction! "what the..." john gasped. i looked on in terror as i saw a horrifing sight.
theres no escape!
we looked on in horror. there was a massive invasion that covered the entire of durham. as far as the eye could see was utter war. we could see fighter jets battling the alien fleet. they were drastically losing. i saw the massive i9nvasion ship. in its centre, there was troops and ships beaming down. "that thing must easily be the size of england"! john cried. "or bigger"! i said uneasily. the marines were also waging a battle with the aliens on the ground. we started firing at a group of aliens that compromised of the little dogs and the ones with swords. there was a one with red armour and a bar in its hands. they roared in defiance and opened fire. we did as well and the dog like aliens all fell by multiple blasts to the head. the lead alien made a snarl and motioned the 5 of its kin forward. we rushed into a bar and reloaded our guns.
as soon as they entered i planted a grenade in front of them. we heard a starlted cry and then a cry of pain as well as an explosion.we looked up and only the chief remained . i emptied my previous weopon into the alien and it died. "lets call them elites"! i said. the grunt john made was just understandable as a yes. i switched the lead elites weapon with my depleted one and we ventured outside. we noticed that all the marine forces were taken refuge in a big abandoned building. snipers and turrets were on the building. a marine ordered us inside and we walked up the stairs to the roof. the room was an old shop. there was still stock left in. we got to the top and met the chief. "hi" we said. he nodded. "welcome to alpha base" "thanks" me and john said at the same time. i looked at him. "scarabs back"! a marine shouted. "it doesnt look happy"! we looked in his direction. his assumption was correct-and it was heading straight for us!
"sure you wanna help us"? a marine said. "your only kids" we nodded. i looked at the scarab and we opened fire at the aliens aboard the scarab.
on board the scarab, an elite called ica canatamee returned fire at the humans. he wore gold armour and carried a special red sword. he watched in anger as his warriors were being killed as they boarded alpha base. the humans were skilled, but they were few in number on the building. he had a feeling that this was a sort of last stand for the human military units in this area. he was next to one of his closest freinds, islani mannezx. his freind leapt onto the building and charged for 2 relatively teenage humans
i saw an oncoming group of the dog ones and shot them. the remaining 2 returned fire. i ducked out the way as bolts sizzled past my head. "frag out" a marine cried and hurled a grenade. the remaining dogs and a few elites went down. suddenly an elite with silver armour appeared and with a roar of rage hurled itself towards us.
ica watched as islani charged at them. the humans fired and brought down his shields, but it was too late. islana was going to kill them as he was already unstoppable.....
will we survive the attack from islani? will alpha base hold? and ultimately will the human race escape extincion? find out in part 3 that is released bewtween the 15 and 18th of december 2006....
islani was almost on the humans.his squad that attacked the humans were all dead, save a few cobras and ica, plus 2 nobles. he was the last elite that was in the battle against the humans. he swiped at them .they had already downed his shields, but he was already far too strong for them, he thought. 5 seconds later, he fell dead.
ica roared in rage as his best freind fell in battle. the humans had shot him down, so he hid in the control room. he snarled. the battle was far from over...
"on board"! a marine cried. all of the remaining 15 troops, not including us, boarded the scarab. "what have the aliens done"? john gaped in horror. there was a guerrilla war against the aliens going on below. humans were pushed back into the buildings and killing the ferocoius aliens. they were returning the favour. as we walked into the control room, i saw one with the swords, 5 dogs and 2 elites. "this is the control room" i snarled. "lets kill off the scarab"....
the end of the battle for durham.
we started firing our guns. in the first blast, the dogs went down, the elite was hit and the sword wielding monstrosity charged. its sword killed a marine, but he rolled a grenade, witch killedthe 2 other elites and brought down the golden armoured aliens shields.it dropped its weapon. "you are the disease" it gurgled. "there learning our language"! i said outstanded.
suddenly it pressed a button and a voice boomed. "self destruction activated" it prepared to jump off the scarab! "we are the cure"! it snarled and leapt off the bridge. "10 seconds remaining" a voice said. we flew off the bridge and landed on the other side of alpha base with a thud. i turned round. the alien vessel shook. fire blasted from every area and its legs gave way. finally as it collapsed, its head exploded. "well" i told john. "thats one small victory for the humans"....
we all entered the room. we sat down and began eating food off the shelf. "you will occupy this place until we have a big enough army to make an effective resistance"! the commando said. a quick survey off the area revealed that there was a tv, toilets and sleeping bags. i saw it was 8 oclock at night. "i will let you know the relevant infomation when you need to".he said. i looked around and saw there was 20 peaple around us. a warthog was deploying more peaple by the minute though. we put our weapons in our belts and we began eating our burgers and slurping our coke.
when we had finished, there was a full cart of 7 peaple. as it skidded to a halt they came into the building. as they entered , i noticed that we knew some. "we could kill a helluva lot of the aliens with these" i said. but we would need a lot of other peaple too. it was pitch black and it was only 8 oclock. we walked over to our freinds.
they consisted of- dane clemence. he had blonde hair and was 12. he was our best freind. the other was bobby borrodale. we didnt really like him, but he was still a pretty good mate. he was the same age as me and had black hair as well. another was a girl called rachel readshaw. she was only 11 but we still treated her like a boy. she had brown hair and was the same height as john. there was matthew, but we always called him sketty. he was the youngest, at 8 and he had blonde hair. he was only four foot. finally there was jase. he was the same age and had the same colour hair as me. he was 5 foot 11. we all sat toghether and we gathered our sleeping bags toghether.
"what have you been doing"? rachel asked us. "weve been driving back the invasion" john ansered. "you"? "weve been defending our street" sketty answered. " we finally destroyed a platoon and then we hid in johns house and a beetle machine blew it up and we were forced to retreat up to here" johns eyes widened in horror. "thats me homeless"! "thats if the human race isnt destroyed by these aliens"said bobby sadly.
a marine came round and handed us a handgun and a machine gun. we also got 5 fragmentation grenades. we were quiet as the commando spoke. "we have a message from the aliens"! he told us. we watched as a new alien appeared on the screen . it had a crown on that was glittering with glowing diamonds. its mouth was split into 4 segments like an elites. "i am the prophet of war"! it bellowed. "my race are called the prophets" "we lead the forerunners,the group of aliens that are on their war to wiping your out"!it continued. "you are an insult to the universe and we are the cure"! "thats what the golden armoured elite told us"! i said to my freinds. "we are massing our forces"! it roared. "you will not survive the month"! the transmission ended and everyone was silent. "we will have to board their main ships and blow them"! the commando said. "but first we will have to make a resistance and defeat them in a war"! he finished and went. i glanced at the clock and discovered it was 9.30. "well"! said bobby. "im watching the tv" he turned it on and we sat down, eager to find out about the latest news on our extiction.
not far away, ica canatamee had gathered an assault squadron to bring down alpha base. he laughed bitterly. his fellow forerunners on board the scarab had all been mercilselly slaughtered. he was going to attack alpha base to get revenge for his brothers. they all surrounded the base. they had active camoflage and were invisible save for a faint shimmer in the air. he nodded to his team of 15 cobras, 4 nobles, 8 elites, and one destroyer. that was the signal to start the attack. he grinned evily. the young ones were his highest priority. soon the laser bolts would fly and he would finally get his revenge....
we were watching the news. a man was talking about how the army was struggling to destroy the forerunners and that the world was doomed.we were still watching it, when an invisible knife slit the commandos throat.
ica snarled in pleasure. the leader of alpha base was just slain by his own sword.he searched for the 2 humans that had destroyed the scarab and killed his freinds.they thought he was dead, but he had evacuated with his jet pack.amidst the gun fire, he saw them killing his cobras. he roared in anger and whipped out his gun and aimed at there heads.
there were only 8 dogs left. we shot at them and 3 fell. jase caved ones skull in with his fist and i fired a salvo at 2 dogs. one caught a blast in the face and the other was killed by a whack to the face with my gun. i turned round to see the golden armoured elite that had commited suicide off the bridge. it had its gun trained on rachels head, seconds before she fired 3 handgun bullets into it.
ica snarled. he was just about to kill the girl, when she had downed his camoflage and half his shields with a handgun. he returned fire, but she ducked and a blast blew a hole in the table behind her.
i finished off the last 3 dogs and started firing at the golden elite. the rest of my freinds were busy dealing with the other elites. i turned round to finish off the alien,and saw just in time the elite smack into me.
ica was enjoying every second of the invasion. he had just cleaned out the human with the black hair from the scarab. ica walked up to him, and fired.
a blast just missed my head. i got up and fired at the elite. it roared in anger and charged again. as we passed, i stuck a grenade on its shoulder.
ica turned round to destroy the human then saw the grenade. with an earsplitting cry, he roared "brothers i am coming"!then blew apart.
i dodged the goo and wiped something i didnt want to identify from my arm. i walked up to my freinds and helped them clean up. there were 5 elites and one destroyer
"happy to see ya"! said john. i fired at the elites. 1 went down from a blast in the shoulder blades. the destroyer charged and we opened fire. it trailed blood, but continued to charge. "eat this"! a marine roared and fired at the alien. he watched in terror as the alien behemoth roared and continued to charge. he didnt have time to scream as the alien wiped him out with its arm. he was dead before he hit the ground.
i hurled a grenade and it detoned as the alien was about to bring up its shields. warm meat flew down and some thing like red carpet covered the wall. we continued firing and 2 elites cried as armour piercing rounds, tore through its body and the other wilted apart by shredder rounds. the last 2 roared and went to exit from the window. "alpha base will fall"! a one with blue armour roared. "think so"? i snarled and fired my handgun. it fell minus its head. the other attemped to flee, but roared in pain, as bullets tore through its back. the alien fell with a gooey splat. "weve saved alpha base"! john grinned. "just for now" i grimaced. "for now"......
part 3, total WAR....
chapter 10. leaving alpha base.
when we were settled down, we counted the remaining peaple. there were only 30 surving peaple. "we have to leave tommorow" i said to jase, when the others were looking round. we were usually the leaders of the gang and we made the descions. "for the war"? he asked. i nodded. "if we stay here, we will die for definete" my freinds wandered over and got in there sleeping bags."were leaving for the war tommorow" i told my freinds. "why dont we stay here"? dane yawned. "because we will die for sure if we dont fight back" said jase. "well"! i yawned. "lets get some rest" it was now 11.15. we lined up our sleeping bags and i noticed that they were going to keep the lights on. i noticed the dead bodies littering the floor. most were humans. "if the lights are on, the demons in the dark stay away" a marine grinned. i was about to answer as my head hit the pillow, but i was fast asleep.
when i woke up, it was half past nine in the morning on sunday the fourteenth of october. all of my freinds were asleep apart from jase. "did you ever think you were gonna die"? i asked him. he nodded. "when the scarabs gun heated up in our street, unless my freinds helped, i was dead." he finished. "whittle gave his life to save me" i sighed. james whittle was a good freind and he had been killed by the forerunners.
"anyway"! he said and changed the subject. he began shaking the gang awake. "time to go"! my freinds responded with varying levels of enthuisiasm. they all rose and stood up. "everyone got everything"? asked jase. they nodded. i got my weapons nd we walked up to the guard marine. "were leaving" said jase in a dont say no tone. the marine nodded and we exited the building.
i saw the warthog. i looked around. there were no forerunners in the area as we could see. we walked up to it. "can anyone drive"? i asked. jase nodded and we clambered in the back, jase driving. "weve drove them out" john smiled. i nodded. "but weve got a hell of a way to go until we destroy them"! we were going that fast, the guard never niticed! we all laughed. "this sure will get us arounf faster"! rachel laughed. we sped up toward where all the shops were and stopped. we looked further. easy to see was the fleet hading in the direction of what only could be new york. "were following them"! jase said and sped up. with a screetch of metal, we were in hot pursuit!
we sped toward the fleet. "were gonna be there by midnight tomorrow if we drive"! said jase. "but if we catch a plane,we will be there by midnight tonight"! we flew round the corner and we were on 2 wheels for a moment."were are we gonna get a plane from, let alone drive it"? john asked. there was an annoying silence. "the airport"? i said hopefully. my freinds rose their eyes at me. "yeah"! jase nodded and we flew toward it. we went past a sign that said "airport 2 miles away"
we were doing 80. we were now entering the airport. it was deserted. "ive never been on a plane for a holiday before" said sketty exitedly. "this is no holiday" i grinned and john laughed.
when we arrived, we parked the warthog. everyone clambered out and we headed for a little jet. when we were about 100 metres away, rachel stopped. "how are we gonna get this to drive"? she said suspiciously. "autopilot" said jase simply.
when we reached the plane, we clambered up the steps. rachel and john were in, when dane roared "scarab"! i looked in his direction to find it was true. a massive scarab lurched toward us! the weapon heated up. "go,go,go"! jase roared. they all rushed in and me and jase got in last. it was just a simple airplane, with a few seats. jase manned the controls and put the autopilot on. we flew along the landing zone and as we began to rise, the scarab fired. it just missed the plane and we all cheered. "up,up and away"! we all grinned. the flight to new york had begun!
next time= we arrive in new york, the invasion ship gets some unwanted visitors theres a war and a few main charecters are killed....
we flew up further and further and the ground looked like a carpet."its so cool"! cried sketty in delight. "it is isnt it"? grinned rachel. i sat at the back near john. "this is starting to become fun"! grinned john, but i could tell he was troubled. "youre worried about your fanily arent you" i said sadly. he looked at me then nodded. "i hope there ok" i smiled sadly. "me too" bobby was next to us. "how long will this bloody take"? he groaned."its 12 now so 12 hours".announced jase. "aw crap"! he replied. "were above the sea" sketty said exitedly. i smiled at him. if only he knew that earth had only weeks or days to live......
rachel walked over."when did we last eat"? asked rachel. "about 2 days ago" i groaned. she moaned with hunger. "i think by christmas there wont be an earth left" bobby said sadly. i nodded. "well probably all be dead after we land""the forerunners are far too strong and they have over 5 times our number in aliens. "if we make it im going back to ferryhill though"! sketty said. suddenly i heard banging and whirring. i slowly looked behind me and saw a fleet of 15 ships open fire!
the ships were the alien fighters. "weve got company"! jase roared and we flew as fast as we could for ny. they opened fire and we were caught in the wing! "were going down"! he continued. the ship shook and we fell over as he did a spin.
"whoa"! i cried. "please dont do that again" i said weakly. we rose and saw the ships were shooting the back! there was a massive blast and the very back of the plane flew away! "well"! i said. "were still flying half a ship"! suddenly, jase cried"to the life boats"! and we all rushed to them. we clambered inside and jase pressed the evacuation button. there was a splash and we flew out to meet the water. as soon as we hit the water, everything went black........
the war begins.
far,far up on board the invasion ship, a noble named slawza mazamile was preparing his platoon for war. he was a leader of over 5000 cobras,200 elites, 500 nobles and 200 destroyers!
he was the first of 50 troops who had the same amount of forerunner forces. he had them all in front of him in a massive room."my noble warriors"! he roared. "you are going to go down there and finish off the vermin with the last attack" they all cheered. "his tone changed to sorrow. "many of you will die" he said sadly. "but you will die remembering that you were part of the begging of the great journey"!they continued to roar in approval. he was firng them up. "kill everything that isnt forerunner"....
when we woke,we noticed that we were in the middle of the boat in the artic ocean! we looked on."theres new york"! bobby cried. it was true. about 30 minutes away from us, was the brilliant new york!we could see the sparkling lights and forerunner ships obliteterating them. "i never thought that the war would bring us to new york"! said rachel happily, seconds before we were flung into the waters cruel and murky depths....
the bad side of the sea
when i awoke, we were still in the water. i checked to see if every one was ok. i swam up to the gang and noticed they were all crying."whats wrong"? i asked. "skettys gone"! sobbed jase. i was stunned. i had lost one of my best freinds. "hes been swept away"! cried rachel.it was very dark and it was 2.30 on the 15 of october, monday. it was pitch black and i could only see the outline of my freinds bodies. "is everyone else here"?asked jase. they were all there. i swam up to john. "ironic isnt it"? he grinned sadly. "huh"? i asked. "sketty has a million chances to be killed by the forerunners and he drowns" he said sadly. "he could still be alive" i said. and i started to CRY! it might sound babyish but lose a freind and thats what it feels like- forever because their dead!
we wiped away our tears and i went to dane. he snarled. "im gonna wipe out every forerunner to avenge sketty"! i looked at him. "and were gonna blow up the invasion ship too"! i snarled too. he nodded and grinned. everone laughed doubtfully."and how are we gonna do that"? jase said sadly."well! i said mischiosvlsly. "i might have a plan"!
next time... the war begins..
slawsa was ready for war. he was ready to shoot anything that was not forerunner down there. he was inches away from a massive war going on beneath him. 5 scarabs were blasting at tanks. a tank was blown up, seconds before it fired a rocket into the control room, killing all the crew instantly. shortly afterwards 2 more tanks were smoldering wrecks.
slawsa activated his sword as his dropship landed. he flew out and with a roar of rage, he charged toward the oncoming threat....
New York,New York!!
"its only 10 minutes away !" said dane exitedly. "this will be one not so enjoyable experience if we get caught"! i said, grimly. this was the plan- we were going to kill off lots of the aliens and in the war, we were going to hitch a lift up by a dropship, or better a fighter ship each. we were then going to go into the invasion ship, self destruct it and hopefully not get caught. we were then going to fly up to there mother ship and then locate their planet. it was a farfetched plan, but if it worked it would save the human race.
i looked at the massive city. it was already immersed in fierce combat with the forerunners. at least 10 scarabs were blasting the city and destroying its defences. millions of aliens were fighting the army. it was only a matter of time before the city was overrun...
even more reinforcements were being beamed down the grav lift and dropships were dispersing hundreds of troops all the time.
"theres no hope" said bobby sadly. "this will be the day we all die".... rachel slowly nodded. "its over""we might as well run away"
me, jase, dane and john thought differently however. "we will destroy them"! jase cried."if it means we all die in the progress, then it means we died defending our peaple"! we nodded. i looked again.
we had now docked onto a beach. "here goes"! i cried and we all leapt onto the sand. we all got our weapons out and i had my handgun and machine gun. my plasma guns were in my belt.we looked at the city. suddenly a group of 50 elites, 1000 dogs, 20 nobles and 12 destroyers charged toward us. as i began firing, i knew it was over...
the forerunner pack was very close now.i began firing. an elite and 2 dogs fell as they were hosed with bullets. the destroyers got ready to fire there arm guns, when i chucked a plasma grenade. it stuck on one and detionated. the explosion took it out and 3 others. as we continued firing , i noticed a platoon of 50 tanks and a captured scarab as well as an army of other 500 peaple. "look"! i told my freinds in happiness. the alien turned round just in time for the first volley of rockets and a scarabs gun to hit them. only 10 elites remained. we fired and our combined efforts brought the aliens down. "we could get in the safety of the army until we locate another scarab"! i said. my freinds nodded and we climbed up to meet the army. we walked up to a man.
"whats happening"? i asked. i noticed he only had a badly torn set of clothes like us. "we have made a resistance to drive the forerunners back"! he snarled. suddenly, as i was about to answer, we saw a fleet of 20 scarabs! "theres our ride"! i said as i saw a row of 10 ships on the bridge.
we waited as the tanks blasted the scarabs. as a scarab blew up a few tanks, it finally collapsed to the floor and destroyed 3 tanks. i saw a building that was next to the scarabs and was the height of them. we could go to the top and get a ship from there.
i told my freinds the plan and we ran into the building. it was an office. "wow" i said as i saw all the computers flew on the floor and a chunk blew out the wall! suddenly the door broke and 20 elites rushed in! "this time we dont run"! i snarled and we opened fire on our assailants.
opposition. plenty of it.
the first barrage of bullets tore through 4 elites. they dropped to their knees. i downed anothers shields and hurled a grenade. 5 aliens flew up alive. when they hit the ground, they were dead. we finished off the 5 wounded ones and we hid under a counter to reload. i drew my plasma gun and blasted the elites with a flurry of bullets. they flashed, then 2 were killed as the rounds penetrated their armour.
we continued blasting at the elites. there were 12 left as my freinds were killing plenty. i got out my handgun and fired an entire clip into the fray. 5 went down as the armour piercing rounds did what they say they do.
after a short firefight, the final elite fell with a moan of pain. "we actually killed 50 elites in one go"! i said outstanded. "yep"! john nodded. "shut up"! she said angrily. "stop arguing you two"! i snarled back. "we dont have time for this"! "ok"! she gulped and we all jumped onto the scarab.
slawsa was blasting away, when he heard a bang and he looked on his camera. there was the humans that had caused the humans a helluva lotta grief. "they were only kids" he thought. " but they still were going to die"! he thought as he advanced toward them.
as soon as we landed, rachel and jase were argiung again. "the world could be doomed and they still find time to argue"! i complained. bobby laughed. "nobles! dane roared and we opened fire. the combined gunfire tore the aliens apart and we walked on. i looked at my freinds. bobby, dane, jase, rachel, john and me. i had a feeling they woundnt all be coming back...
slawsa charged into the humans as they didnt expect it. the girl was knocked flying and the battle was met.
we were talking, when a massive red noble charged and knocked rachel flying. she was either unconcoius or DEAD. i didnt think about the latter version. we fired at the alien and even though its shields flared it seemed to laugh at us. then he drew his own sword and leapt, ready for the kill....
slawsa was about to kill the knocked out one , when the blonde haired one walked up ,removed his helmet and placed a plasma grenade it it. before he could react, the noble was dead.
i couldnt believe my eyes. dane had just stuck a grenade on the nobles head! bits of noble fell all over and there was goo all over. "that was cool"! said bobby. dane just nodded and we walked toward the ships.
"you go"! said bobby. "ill deal with the scarab and follow you after" we nodded and jase explained the plan."weve survived stage one" i said to him."paul and dane in one and rachel and john in the other" he replied. "me and bobby will control one each"
we were going to take on the invasion ship. i thought as i clambered into the ship with dane. we were going to finish the forerunners for good!
we all clambered in the ship apart from bobby. we had just all got a walkie talkie out of the planes. "were all on channel one" dane told me. "ok" i said and i tuned it in.
we were in an alien fighter. it was easily big enough for 2. it was red inside and there were blue streaks on the walls. there was a glowing light on the top.
we sat in the 2 pilot seats at the front of the vessel. the controls were a weird combination of tentacle like switches. "change of plan"! said john on the radio. "huh"? i said. "well hitch a lift in the cruisers in the plane" he continued. "yes" everyone said. rachel didnt speak as she was still unconcious. "rachels still unconcious" i said to jase. "she may be in trouble" "i know" said jase in a worried tone.
as we were muttering, it was pretty hard to see the cruiser and 5 alien fighters that flew toward us. it was pitch black too, so it was no picnic. suddenly john cried. "alien ships ahead" he said. we need to board that cruiser"! i fired at a ship and its shields overloaded and it plummeted towards the floor, trailing smoke.
suddenly, as the alien ships flew toward us, a ship flew into them. it was bobby! "hi guys" he said over the comm. "eat this alien scum"! he cried. "bobby we have to get into the cruiser"! i said in frustration. "negative" he said. " ill have to wipe out the ships, so you can get on it"! he finished. ~"ok" said jase and bobby was making the fighters blast at him as we flew toward the alien cruiser.
we stopped near the cruiser and we ran on board. there was a platoon of 5 elites that were in big long helmets! there were like frills on the top and they had fangs were their mouth was. we opened fire and bullets pinged off their shields and eventually after 2 full clips were used, the aliens crashed to the deck.
we waited for every one to board. but there was still one left. bobby. he was battling the alien ships and there was still 2 left. "come on bobby"! jase cried. we were about to enter the invasion ship.
on board the ship, the prophet of war was ordering his elites to fire the city killer beam. it was going to be a glorious day...
suddenly the middle of the ship began to glow. it was too bright to look at. bobby hovered near it. "there gonna fire a beam into the city!" said bobby. it was about to fire as it was glowing with energy and it was sucking heat in.
"if it succeds itll wipe out new york and every thing else in a mile radius"! he said and edged closer. we all gasped in shock. jases eyes widened . "oh no you dont"! he said. "im sorry" he said sadly. "i have to" "no"! jase said. he was starting to cry. "we already lost one"! "whats he gonna do"? asked rachel and i could tell she was frightened.
"hes gonna fly into the beam"! he explained. "it will disable the beam, but hell die" he said sadly. "no"! cried rachel. "there has to be another way" we could- "theres no way" i said and felt tears run down my cheeks. "we could blast the shields down"! said dane. "there too powerful".... replied jase. "if i do that,its will blow up the weapon and it will temporaly down the shields" he continued . "in that time, it will be your job to blow the invasion and mother ships" he went ever closer. "stop"! cried dane. "well enter by a secret way"! "there isnt one"! he said. "well"! he said and drove into the beam. eat this alien scum"! we watched in awe as when bobby vanished into the beam, the ship shook. there was a loud bang and the shields flickered and slowly the shields vanished. we docked into the ship and got out. i drew my weapon. we were going to avenge sketty and bobby. this was going to end NOW!
we noticed we were in a massive long corridor. there was no forerunners so far. we entered the room at the end of the corridor and we began to float!"theres no gravity"! rachel squeled. we began climbing the walls. jase flew off the wall and said"superman" we all laughed. as we entered the 3rd room, we all fell in a heap. "ow" i said and we all rose slowly. we were in a cross road. the signs were in vaguely understandable hierloghyithcs. i noticed that there was a dropship one that looked like it was leading to a planet. there was a mothership one as well. "rachel and john go and take out the forerunners planet"! said jase. then when the mission is complete, you meet in space ,fly to earth and he paused. "we finish this"! they nodded and ran off. "dane and paul" he said. "take out the mothership" he said. "you have the most important mission" he said seriously."dont fail" "we wont" i said then added suspiciously. "what about you"? he explained. "ill take out this one" i nodded and we ran. i stopped and added. "whatever you do dant get caught"! "i wont"! he grinned and we ran off. "well" i snarled. "they began it and we will finish it"!
we walked on and got out our weapons. it was 6.30 on the 16 of october 2006. i had a handgun, 2 plasma rifles and an smg (sub machine gun)
we continued to walk down the corridor to the sliding doors at tyhe end. the parts were they slid open were glowing with a luminescent white.
"dane, have you noticed there are no forerunners"? i asked him. i got no reply. "dane"? i asked and turned round. there was noone there...
dane was walking along the corridor,when a noble had grabbed him from behind and dragged him into a room. he was stripped of all his weapons."go ahead" dane snarled. "just kill me" the noble snarled back and rose the brunt of its sword. "with pleasure" it replied and whacked dane with it.
"Dane"! i cried. he was there a minute ago and he had vanished. "ill have to wipe the mothership out on my own then"! i muttered aloud. the door opened and i smacked head on into an elite.
i opened fire at it, but the alien did not return fire."die or fight"! i snarled. "hold your fire" it said and i didnt and it said it louder so i did." whats the matter with you"? i asked the elite. "i want to help you" it told me. "my prophets are fools and they must be assasinated"! "ok" i said. "but any funny business and ill kill you" it nodded and we walked through lots of corridors,unbenownkst that the elite was behind me....
when he woke up, dane was in a small room with no windows. there was grime littering the floor and black stuff that looked a hell of a lot like forerunner blood.
the only thing that gave light was a small floating orb in the middle of the room. it was a small red orb that pulsated and emitted waves of light. then dane realised. "so im in prison"! he said angrily. "while paul is probably killing the forerunners thinking im a girl"!he huffed in frustration and backed into a wall to revise his escape plan when the wall gave way and he was plumetting down a tunnel!
we had went round a few corners that the alien had instructed. "in here" he ordered and i went in. there were only 2 prophets sitting on hovercraft like chairs! the room was like a temple and glowed with eerie white light. i could only see the faces of the aliens and it scared the hell out of me."surrender or me and a rogue elite will slaughter you both"! i snarled. i noticed vine like things and tunnels behind them. there was also a ledge. suddenly, i felt 2 phenominally strong arms wrap round me and i felt the cool sensation of a gun being pressed to my head. "you and what army"? the prophets bellowed. i released with a sickening sensation that i had been tricked. "god"! i thought. "dane was such a girl"!
one rescue then one showdown.
i was led to a shiny cold table and i had my guns in my belt, but with the elite watching me, i didnt have a chance.
"sit" the lite snarled. before i could react i was pushed onto the table and my head smashed against the table. it too hurt like hell.the prophets walked away and i noticed that my vision was blurry and everything sounded echoey and deep.TOO DEEP. i sighed as the elite rose a red energy sword. dane was going to have to find me fast! i thought. or the plan would be over before it even began!
dane flew out the tube and landed on a ledge in a massive room. he saw the 2 prophets and he gasped as he saw paul! he noticed the elite then he saw the tentacles. "this could get intresting"....
i looked into the elites eyes. it was full of evil and hatred. they glowed with evilly red sheen."liar" i spat and the elite roared. "i cant kill you until your freind is found" it said. i grinned.i turned round and saw an incredible sight.
paul had just made eye contact with dane when he grabbed a vine and prayed for it to work. "well"! he said "here goes everthing"!and swung.
i watched in shock as dane swung from the vine and shot the elite at point blank range. he landed and the elite charged with its shields downed. "ill deal with the prophets" he said. i nodded and the elite charged.
i didnt have time to shoot it and the alien drew its sword and slashed out. i ducked and felt the heat of the blade rush past my neck.i punched the alien in the belly and it laughed. it swiped at me and i ducked and just in time drew my gun and as it leant over me i fired the gun into its belly. the plasma beam made a foot wide exit hole in its belly and it fell dead.
i got the sword and noticed dane was killing one prophet. i attacked the other and before its shields rose, i made the sword and its belly meet.
dane put a fragmentation grenade in the other prophets mouth! it went to muffle in anger but couldnt. "present from mankind" dane said then added."slightly spicy" we both leapt out of the room and saw the prophet explode. there were still 3 prophets left."well"! said dane. "lets go visit the mothership"!
