"It's a fight to the death. You can't back out yet." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The soldiers all gathered in the fortress dining hall after making sure they got rid of their scents and anything that could lure the creatures. After Tannia showed them the secret room that held all the weapons in the fortress, Austin gathered them around to talk about how they were going to fight against the creatures."Now that we have everything, We've got all the weapons we need and now we....."Michaelraised his hand, causing Austin to stop to hear what he had to say. "I know you have a whole idea plan out in your head, but I'm not going to be a part of your scheme." He stood up and moved towards Austin, who stood at the end of the table. "I'm not going after those creatures.""Are you crazy? We can't stay here forever! " Kemisola shouted."You can't stay here forever, but I can. We don't know how to get home, and by now, they must have thought we were dead. Look around you; there are only fif
"We fight for our country because it's our duty."Music played: Godzilla by Eminem feat. Juice World. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Austin opened his eyes due to the bright sun rays, the hardness of gravel on his body, and the chirping of birds. He closed them again when the light from the sun almost blinded him. After adjusting to the rays of the sun, Austin stood up from the sand and looked around him. There were no trees, no houses, just sand everywhere. It was as if Austin was in the desert alone."Ouch, the sun is too hot." kemisola voice sounded beside him. "Where are we?" She stood up and used her hand to remove the sand from her body."My head hurts!" Tammy groaned out in pain behind them. "This place is hot and looks as if we are in the Sahara desert," Tammy complained, and removed the camouflage jacket he wore from his body."We are not in the Sahara desert," Tannia corrected. He stood a few feet away, but his voice was too loud for them to hear. "We're going to die," h
Austin and Kemisola returned to the base camp when the sun was about to set. When they got to the gate, it was closed and two soldiers watched them from the first tent. "State your business," one of the soldiers inquired.Austin opened his mouth to say something, but Kemisola beat him to it. "We are from the Mecianda team," she announced.The soldiers whispered amongst each other before opening the gate. When they entered the base camp, all the five-team leaders stood outside waiting for them. "You've decided to show up," Justin, team leader of Canada, walked up to Austin. "You killed six soldiers.""That's not what I said," Tammy said, coming to stand in between them. "I said we lost six soldiers, not what you said." He corrected."Whether he did it or whatever, is not the point. We have lost six soldiers already because of him." Michael, team leader of the USA, pointed out. "Last time I checked, you weren't there and you have no right to blame me." Austin spoke out. He was pissed
Austin never knew his actions were going to cost him two soldiers. He had never lost a soldier on a mission before. He didn’t say anything as the little boy led them out of the tunnel. The walk was in total silence as the soldiers were trying not to think about their lost comrades. When they finally reached the end of the tunnel, Kemisola was the first to break the silence. The end of the tunnel leads to a place with nothing but rocks and sand. There was no life as no leaves grew on the ground. "Where are we, little boy?" she asked the boy."We are on the outskirts of Roku." We share a border with Lana. "My name is Tannia." The boy said to her, "The creatures will soon be here.""How are they everywhere?" Lenny questioned the boy. "They reside here anyway." This is their home. " Tannia answered sadly.They’ll soon be here. We need to leave now! " Austin shook his head at the little boy. He didn’t like the way the boy was ordering him around. He had never taken orders from people lo
Austin groaned out in pain when he felt an aching pain in both his legs. He couldn't hear a thing for five minutes after the fall. When he struggled to open his eyes, he pushed the rock on his legs away and managed to stand up. He had no idea where they had fallen, but he figured it was a tunnel. Rays of light from the sun brightened the tunnel through the hole, which made it easier for him to see. "Can anyone hear me please?" He shouted, and his voice echoed through the tunnel. "If you can hear me...""Yes, we can." Stop screaming. " Tammy's voice sounded beside him. Tammy accepted Austin's hand in his. Austin took his hand and pulled him up. "What the fuck?" Tammy looked up at the hole from where they had fallen. "How did that happen?" He asked."I guess it's..." Tony answered from behind him. "Something shook the Earth up." He stood up from where he landed and saluted Austin when he saw him. "Sir!""At ease," Austin answered. "Where are the rest?" He questioned"They have to be her
"That's something," Kemisola exclaimed when Austin shot the last creature. A hundred creatures entered the base camp, and all of them were shot on the head by the soldiers."We have to burn their bodies until they are ashes." Austin said to the rest of the soldiers. "Who are you to give orders here?" A man wearing a brown round shirt and a green khaki was questioned. "You don't give orders here," The man said, with a bit of an accent. His English was broken as he found it hard to pronounce "you.""If I were you, brown-faced, you'd listen to me," Austin advised. "Brown face? "You dare call me brown-faced." The man pronounced B as p and you as do. "Hey, guys! That's enough. Let's do what he says. " Michael, the team leader for the U.S.A., said to both of them. "What do you know about the creatures anyway?" Justin, the team leader of Canada, was questioned. He was a man, standing as tall as Austin. Justin was a sturdy man, which made him look like a giant. He flexed his muscles at Au
present"Are you all ready for the war?" Austin addressed his team. "I said, are you all ready for the war?" He shouted."Yes, sir!" His team responded.This mission is to death. A soldier is a modern warrior, and we should be ready to face death for our country's sake. What are we? ""Rangers!" They all responded."And what do we do?" He questioned"We will defeat all terrorists!" They chorused.Austin paused for a while and looked into the faces of the soldiers. They all kept straight faces as they waited for their leader's order. "Bring your tags out everyone, and also your last letter in case you didn't make it.""Yes, sir!" They all responded and did as told. Ten soldiers were present on the plane. There are five males and five females.They all dropped their tags and last letters on the brown paper provided by Austin."Remember this mission is to your death. Lungo! " He called."Yes, sir!""Prepare to land," Austin said to him.Irish, mocha, Affogato, Doppio, cortado, latte, Amer
"There has been another attack again on Mandoe as what is known to be the creature has struck again." Forty people have been injured, but no deaths have been recorded yet. This makes it the fifth attack in a month. What is the government doing about it? The people are dying and the....... " Austin switched off the TV and turned to face his team. They had arrived earlier, as ordered by the colonel, to the base camp."We are leaving in four days and we need some basic training that we all know." Austin addressed them. "The people are suffering, and as soldiers, we must protect and serve them." Do you understand? " He shouted."Yes, sir!" They all chorused.Kemisola raised her hand to ask a question. "We don't even know what we are going up against," she pointed out. "Are we going to fight what we don't know?" She asked, and the rest of the soldiers chuckled."Who are you again?" Austin asked her, and this made the rest of the soldiers laugh, except Kelly. "Is something funny?""No, sir!
