The week has passed by, there next mission was coming up. They were to attack the humans capital city. It was the biggest and most heavily fortified city the humans had. Half the fur army was going. It would be the biggest, bloodiest battle in the war. There were no limits, just kill everyone, the humans had went to war on their race so they were doing the same.
John was going in first as recon. Two days after him his team would show up, then after five days after Johns arrival the army will invade. John sat into his specialized spy plane, it had room for one fur, John, and for any gear needed.
The plane would fly itself John just had to sit there. John never liked flying with anything other than his wings. He pulled the window of the plane down and locked it into place. He turned on the engines and flipped the auto pilot on.
The plane roared to life, the engines flared and the plane slowly rolled onto the runway. It slowly sped up at first then after it got off the ground it started to pick up speed really fast. It was a mach 2 in less than a minute.
John sat back and relaxed, he had about a three hour flight. During the flight he thought about a lot of stuff, mainly about Star. He couldn't wait to see her again, he wanted to kiss her and hold her. But he would never be able to do that. John slowly feel asleep.
An alarm went off and woke John up from his dream. He looked out the window and saw the city ahead. His DZ was about a mile away from the city walls, he would have to find his own way in. The plane slowed down and started to lose altitude. The plane came up on an small opening in a forest, It landed and John threw open the window.
John jumped out and landed on the soft ground, making no nose even though he had his blocky new armor on. He looked around the opening and didn't see and movement. He put on his backpack which had all of his stuff in it, other than his colt which was strapped to a built in holster on his side.
He walked off into the woods and found himself heading north east toward the city. After ten minutes of walking he saw the walls. They were at least ten stories high, they seemed to be impenetrable. He knew he could fly over them, but that would be risky. He couldn't just walk in the front door.
He went with the idea of flying. He activated his suits cloak and took flight. He flew about half way up before he started to get tired, the suit was heavy and it was doing a number on his wings. He didn't give up though, he didn't stop flying until he was at the top.
When he reached the top he landed and collapsed onto the top of the wall. His wings burned and ached from the strain. He would have to let them rest before he could glide down to the street. He was to disable the power systems and anything else like AA guns, that he could find.
Star sat in the seat of her spy plane, John had gone into the city two days ago. They lost contact with him a day after he got there. No one knew what had happened to him. The furs human allies were going to try and blow the north wall of the city to give Star Will and Kate time to get in. Star missed John more than she thought she would.
The plane landed with a thud and Star popped open her window. She jumped out and landed without sound. She turned on her suits battle network and saw Kate and Will FoF tags about half a mile away, they were still in their planes about to land.
As soon as Will and Kate go on the ground they moved to the city walls. They found the main entrance and waited in the woods. There was a quiet boom from the other side of the city. All the guards at the front ran into the city. Large metal doors started to fall as they were closing down the city.
Star Will and Kate all ran at once toward the doors. Will and Kate were first in, Star had to slide under the door to make it in. Their mission was to find John and make it to the LZ in less than three days.
Star hoped with all that she had that John was safe. She also hoped they would find him, before the humans did. She started to realize something but then she dismissed the thoughts. She looked around and saw that all the guards must have seem them come in.
There were at least fifty guards moving toward them. Star brought up her sniper rifle and dropped seven guards, one with each shot from her seven round mag. Will and Kate opened fire with their machineguns.
Half of the guards were dropped in less than a minute. Anything the guards shot at them just bounced off their armor. They took out the last of the guards there with ease, then they all sprinted towards an ally way. They hid in there and tried to pick up John on their battle network but John must have had his FoF tag turned off.
For the next three days Star Will and Kate looked for John without luck. It was three hours away from the invasion. Star Will and Kate moved toward the LZ slowly so that they wouldn't get spotted. It was hard going, there were patrols all over the city looking for them.
Three hours past and they were only half way to the LZ, Star guessed that the invasion would have to start without them. Sirens went off as a few large explosions can be heard. The fur army was there.
In the army there were over ten thousand fur infantry, about a dozen tank groups, each with five tanks. In the air there were one hundred choppers and a dozen fighter jets. The tanks were the first to show up, shooting down the big metal doors at the main entrance.
The tanks came in and took over the area around the entrance. They held it from a small defense from a few guards. It was strange that there was little resistance. After the tanks has cleared the entrance about nine thousand infantry can in through the main entrance. They started to sweep the city.
Soon after the infantry came in the choppers and jets were in the air. The whole of the fur army that was going there was in. That's when it happened. The entire human army surrounded the city. Jets came in and shot down the fur jets. The fur tanks and infantry were able to hold off anything coming into the entrance.
Soon human paratroopers fell in from the sky. The furs were told to retreat. But anything that tried to leave the city was killed. The tanks and infantry finally lost the entrance and fell back to the center of the city, where the capital building was.
The fur army was separated, Most of them were at the capitol building trying to last there but about a thousand of them were spared throughout the city. Star Will and Kate were all together looking for John who was still no were to be found.
Star looked up at the stars in the sky, this was the third day after the invasion started. There was still no word from John, or from HQ. The only thing on the radios were yelling from the battles. Over all of their army was there, and over half of the ones there were killed.
Star was worried about John, she wanted to see him again. She missed him, and she thought that she loved him. It just took her that long to realize that. She didn't want anything more than for John to hold her in his arms.
She was snapped out of the thought by gun fire. It was close by, sounded like the fur standard machinegun. It went off again, this time followed by human fire. It was another fire fight. It lasted about five minutes, then only silence.
Over her radio she heard screams and gun fire. She heard someone say fall back, she heard a tank shoot. Then came more gun fire and a large explosion. The radio went silent from that source.
Another radio source came up, it was from the center of the city, seven thousand furs were there, about six tank groups. From the radio Star heard gun shots and tanks blasts. There were a lot of screams then static. After ten minutes the same source came back up, someone was yelling fall back over and over again, the main force had been over whelmed.
Then Star head what she was waiting for, she heard John over the radio. He was asking for a chopper pick up. The chopper that Will and Kate were with responded, saying that they would be there in less than two minutes. Star hoped up and ran over to Will and Kate as they got into the Chopper.
"I told you he was ok" Star said as she jumped into the chopper.
"Let's hope so" Will said looking out the window.
Bullets whizzed by as he ran. Gun fire came from all around. John ran for his life. More bullets flew by as he hoped over a two foot tall stone wall. He ducked behind it for cover as he pulled his sidearm. In one swift move he jumped up from behind his cover and opened fire on the hostiles. He unloaded the clip then turn and ran more.
John pulled a clip from his belt and slid it home into his colt. He chambered the round and holstered his gun. More gun fire from behind him sounded off as he slid behind an old van.
"Where is my back up?" John yelled into his radio strapped to his head.
"Chopper is inbound, ETA two min, Hang in there" someone said over the radio
"Damit!" John yelled as he threw the radio off his head.
John risked a look around the van. He saw them moving in. There were at least one hundred of them. He drew his colt and opened fire on them. He dropped two of them before they returned fire. John ducked his head behind the van just as a few hundred machinegun rounds tore into the van.
When the firing stopped John fired two shots from around the corner then took off running. He didn't dare look behind him as he ran. He could hear the chopper, it was close by. He continued to run. His lunges burned and his legs ached but he kept running.
All of the sudden a sharp pain caught him in the shoulder. He fell to the ground. He had been shot. It went through his wing his armor and right into his shoulder blade. He rolled over and dismissed the pain in his shoulder and wing.
John pulled his colt out and fired. Only one shot came out before the clip fell to the ground. He was out. He looked over to his left and saw the chopper. It was too far off to get to him in time. John slowly stood up and faced the charging crowed of his enemy.
As they approached with weapons pointed at his head John pulled his trusty custom built combat knife out. If they wanted him they were going to get one hellofa fight.
"Come and get me you sons of bitches" John yelled as they ran at him.
They reached him. He grabbed the first ones gun and broke it in half. He stabbed the man in the throat and pushed his body to the ground. The second one had already dropped his gun and was pulling out his own knife.
The second man swung his knife at John who then grabbed his wrist and pulled making the man fall forward. John's knife went right into the man's skull. He pushed the man's dead body off of his knife as three men jumped onto him.
The first of the tree men jumped onto his back. John grabbed him by the head and threw him to the ground. The second man punched him in his jaw. John threw the second man into the third and turned back the first as he stabbed John in the leg with his knife.
John punched the first man in the side of the head, feeling bone snap under the impact. He turned to face the other two and as he did he saw about ten people right next to him. He swung with both is fist and his knife to fight them off but even ten men were too strong for the dragon.
They got him onto his back and started to beat him with their fists and the buts of their guns. Most of the impacts were deflected by his body armor. One of the men pulled Johns Knife out of his hand. He then put the blade up to John throat.
"Ready to die dragon?" The man said.
With that John opened his mouth and breathed a jet of flames into the man's face. The man fell back screaming as he held tried to put out the fires on his face. John laughed as one of the men picked up a large combat knife.
"I'm ready, go ahead and kill me" John yelled at the man as he lifted the knife above his head.
There was a gunshot and the man with the knife fell. All of the men turned and looked. The chopper had landed and three armed figures were getting out.
The three figures then opened fire on the crowed with their machineguns. The men twitched as the gunshots hit them. There lifeless body's fell to the ground. The rest of the men that were still there returned fire as the ran.
The chopper lifted off and a chain gun opened fire on the retreating men. John lay on the ground beaten and bloody. His armor was dented all over and even cut in a few places. One of the three figures ran over to him.
"Sir are you alright?" The figure said with a female voice.
"Just a scratch" John said as he looked up at his squad mate. "And nice to see you Star, I was thinking you were going to miss the party"
"Never sir, just wanted to make a good entrance." Star said as she took off her helmet. "Now let's get you out of here"
Star reached down and grabbed Johns hand and helped him to his feet. As soon as John was on his feet he was off of them again. Behind them the chopped went up in a fiery explosion sending both John and Star to the ground. Star was back on her feet before John had even known what had happened.
"Come on get up!" Star yelled to John as she leveled her gun, sweeping the area for hostiles.
John slowly got back onto his feet just as Star let out a burst of fire. John turned to see the mod of men running at them, only this time there were at least a thousand of them. They all carried some sort of gun, weather it was pistol or machinegun.
Almost all at once the men opened fire on them. Star pulled John behind a wall as thousands of bullets flew past were they were just standing. She fired around the Conner then turned and looked at John.
"We have to go now!" She yelled over the gunfire. "Kate, Will get over here now!"
Two large figures in full armor ran up guns leveled and firing into the crowd. Bullets pinged off their armor as the shot. They both pulled a grenade from their belts and threw them. They got cover next to John and Star.
"Good to see you again John" Will yelled as the grenades went off, "Now if you don't mind let's get the hell out of here!"
"Sounds good to me" John yelled back "Now how are we going to do that?"
"Another chopper is on the way." Kate said as she looked around the wall.
A laud gunshot went off and Kate fell back a hole in the faceplate of her helmet. Star shot off a few rounds around the corner. Will kneeled next to Kate and took off her helmet. Kate laid dead. A hole in her head were the bullet entered.
"Damit!" Will yelled as he pulled Kate's body back
Will got up and just stood there looking down at Kate's body. John looked up and saw three choppers moving in. He looked over a Star who was shooting blindly around the corner. He pulled his colt out and pulled a clip off of Kate's belt.
"popping smoke!" Star yelled as she threw a smoke grenade onto the ground
Will picked up his machinegun and moved out of cover. He opened fire on the crowd of men running at them. Almost instantly he was pelted with bullets. He moved back behind cover.
"Damit will cool yourself!" Star said
The choppers got in range and opened fire on the men running at them. One of the choppers landed next to them and the door slid open.
Standing in the door was a six foot tall dragoness. She motioned for them to get in. John was first in and then Will carrying Kate's body then lastly Star. The dragoness closed the door and told the pilot to lift off.
As the chopper took off and flew away John looked at Will. He was looking at Kate's face, John couldn't see his face but he could tell he was weeping. John looked over at Star who was sitting on the other side of him.
Star sat there looking out the window of the chopper. John couldn't read her face, she had always been good at hiding her feelings. John sat there staring at her, looking over her.
"Hey Star." John said to her
Star turned and looked at John. As soon as she was facing him John leaned in and kissed her. Her face lit up bright red as she blushed. They sat in saying nothing for a long time .
"I have wanted to do that for a long time" John said
Star just sat there unable or unwilling to say anything.
"Wrap it up ." Will said his voice showing that he was hurt. "You two love birds better be ready."
None of them said anything else the rest of the way back to HQ.
