Its continued from chapter 18, and im finishing first book here!

Ch.18 Continued They have been loyal ever scence. Himukaru sat down and seen a merchant come up. " Yes, what can i do?" The merchant held out a laser pistol, it had blood on it. " I was shot, by one of your soldiers. They didnt pay the full price for one of my ion bombs. Then he pulled out his laser pistol and shot my arm. I had no choice but to kill him." The Honor Guards pulled out the staffs from thier backs and then put them into his chest. The Empire forbayed that any soldiers be killed without an official order. The merchant shouted in pain, as he looked around the world went black. He could hear Himukaru say, " Finish him off then dump him." The men pulled the bladed staffs out of his gut. The merchant said, " The Ravens will kill you all!" The one of the Honor Guards cut his head off with a diamond sword. The other dragged the head and body to a disposal vent. The one who killed him wiped the blood off with some cotton rags. Himukaru threw them 100 folds ( folds were the currency that the Empire used now. The are micro chips that are downloaded when used.) and told them to leave, and that he'd be fine. They did as insrtucted and left the chambers. Himukaru didnt expect visitors to come, so he closed the throne room and then got on a transportational Lotus. He told the pilot to fly to the command center in Little MarsWay. The pilot nodded and they went off. The ride wasnt long, about ten mintues. Mars was fairly small compared to the former Earth. Earth now split and floated off into the deep void. It left a green trail from where it went. It flew off about a year ago, leaving a green ring around the sun. The K'shara from the planet Eldrin came back to Mars. They made some camps and even a city called Star Point. The K'shara sided with Himukaru, because they knew he was the only power on the planet. But that never meant they liked him either. The K'shara wernt like medieval elves, they are technolagy-advanced-scientists that were the most creative and the smartest of all the species on Mars. Unfortunately for the size of Mars, they came at about 100,000 people, or Elves. Now that Himukaru has his Imperial Empire, and the K'shara have came back to re-live thier legend, Robert Lanski and Eytra saw thier opportunity to side with the Elves and try to take down the Imperial Empire. Chapter 19: Vital Importance K'shara were about 8'5 at a standard height, and they could get about 10 feet tall, if thier parents had great heights too. Thier hair color was most commonly Black, and then Brown. All of thier eyes were Purple, unless they were the Culvias. The Culvias was thier hero, only that he or she wasnt born from the planet Eldrin, they were a magical body created and sent down as a champion in their time of need. Thier eyes were a foggy orange. They also were only sent in the event that a king died. Every Culvias was a king, and only the Culvias was king. Thier could be more than one at a single time, but no one knows the limit of how many there could be. The Culvias was considered a giant to Humans, because he is 15 feet tall and we are only 7 feet tall at an average now. The current Culvias was Yinal Mulimar, standing at 16 feet 9 inches, and went to Mars to find other beings in the galaxy. Humans, Culvias, K'shara, Eufanian Androids, and now a new supposive other planitary race near the K'shara called Rikar, are all the living beings in the Milky Way. Rikar are exactly like humans, only they arent as tall. They can reach about 6 feet tall, at the most. They are intelligent enough to get to planet Eldrin and traveled to Mars to, only to show thier vital importance to Mars and the Humans. As the Culvias, Rikar, and K'shara land into Star Point, they notice that thier docks are deserted. Yinal opened the hatch to the landing pad, it made a loud thud as it hit the ground. He and the rest of the inhabitants of the ship piled off into the airport lounge and found the attendants, they were K'shara, and they recognized Yinal as the Culvias immeadiatly. The main attendant bowed in respect and said " Welcome, Lord Yinal. We had not expected the visit of a Culvias in Star Point. I hope you find any and everything to your liking, my lord." Yinal just nodded and walked off into the end of the hallway and out of the lounge to the palace for the Culvias. Every race except Eufanian androids and the Order of The Ravens were in Star Point to witness the new races come to Mars. A parade in the town center was arranged and everyone cheered as if there were no tommorow. Yinal was taller than some buildings, not most becuase the bigger ones were built to his fitting. The leader of the Rikar, Omnius Gavetius rode in the hover car that the K'shara provided. He felt short compared to all the others, and then again, thier planet was only slightly bigger than Mars. But they had more of a populace than Mars. Omnius was 5 feet and 7 inches tall. As tallest of the Rikar, he was noitced as a Human teenager, and sometimes was treated as one. Omnius's guard was by his side at all times, dressed in body armor and a Nano-Fiber Titanium helmet, they were equipped with one Pulse Laser Rifle, a Pulse Laser Pistol and one diamond combat knife. All of the diamond came from the quarries in the core of Mars. The Rikar were a deadly race that posed a threat to those who underestimated thier knowlage of engineering and the ability to harvest the energy to make pulse weapons. Omnius and Yinal went to the residents quarters to discuss thier means of being here. Yinal sat down on the luxurius sofa that the room provided. " As Culvias i think that rallying the K'shara would be a very good idea. I am thier king, although i never really vertured beyond Eldrin until now. They might not accept the whole idea that i am now to request them to unify all of them so we can stop the tyranny going on here. Some of them are very loyal to Himukaru and his imperial empire, so this is going to be very tough." Omnius thought about how the Culvias and K'shara would shut down the whole entire empire. This was thier opportunity to size another planet. Earth was the target until they saw its demise back in 2076. Its now 2083, the time has gone by fast. Gregory Farenor died last year and with him, the Batz fell too. K'shara and Rikar alike didnt like himans very much and the rebellion years ago was a major setback, so they felt the need to conquer them all. " I think that if there are any other Humans who can help us overthrow the Uesugi empire, then they should live and prosper. But the planet should be ours. Lets re-unite the K'shara, Rikar, and the Culvias. I also heard that the Order of The Ravens and the Eufanian Androids are in an alliance. They are supposivly plotting against Himukaru, so lets help them. Their leaders are Robert Lanski and Eytra Enulian. Lets give them a visit in Little Marsway." said Omnius. Chapter 20: The Time For Revenge Little Marsway was rebuilt, from all of the battles it fought, and all of those battles have left scars. It fought off the Crimson Eagle, and the re-take off the city. Those times were its worst and now, its finally at peace. The Uesugi empire made it into a diamond weapon factory. It makes all of the knives, swords, and Imperial ceremonial katana's. It made its fortune from the diamonds, but when they found the blue diamond, they made Himukaru very happy. They made his crown and his sword from the blue diamonds. But after a while, they ran out and finally went away as soon as they came. But Little Marsway still is famous and is treated like a second capitol. Yinal and Omnius made thier way off the Tri-Wing Transport, and onto the rock surface. It was more dry and coarse than the old times. They looked at the horizion and saw the City Of Diamond, as beautiful as the people tell. They were maybe a mile away on an old road. They couldnt approach into the city being noticed. The general public would see Yinal as a giant and a menace and most likely kill him. So Omnius was going in with only two bodyguards, and heavily armed. The sewer that Robert Lanski entered was now encased into a meusium. The Museium Of Succsess was a few blocks down into the city, being not too far from the entrance, but if it was blocked then they would die before they met the exit. Omnius walked into the city, head held high and strength shinning. He looked around at the people littering the streets and saw how thier current fasion was very ugly to him. The women dressed in powdered wigs and long dresses with flower deigns. And the men dressed in long robes with hoods. Some of the poor people wore thin hats that let a breeze in. They also wore thin cloth outfits. Omnius thought that Himukaru had a strange sense of fasion. In the planet Ikar, the homeworld of the Rikar, the current fasion was long pants and a hooded shirt. 'It is alot better than this' he thought. He was only three buildings down when he was stopped by a Honor Guard. " And who might you be little man? " Omnius looked up at him. He was only a foot taller than himself. " I'm the King of the Rikar, Omnius Gavetius. If you insult me then you will be imprisioned and sent to Ikar, to there be judged on my fate." The Honor Guard looked as if he were lost. " Ah yes, i thought so. Carry on Omnius." Omnius looked at him, in the most disrespectful way possible. Then they were there. The Meusium Of Succsess was about as big as a football stadium from the early 21st Century. It had over 1000 rooms of historic info and artifacts from the Tri-Wars. The Tri-Wars was the battle against the Ravens and the Batz. They had many uniforms, medeals, and guns. Omnius walked in and turned to the right, where the sewer hole was located, and sat down, listening to any sound of guards coming or just any followers. Nothing. So he started his journey into the ' Historic Locations ' part of the meusium. He looked at Little Marsway, Mars International Plaza, and the Omega Four landking site that landed the Harvester. He finally found the sewer hole that Robert Lanski never came out of. He pressed a button and all of the doors slammed shut, locked, then sealed. The Rikar Guards manned the two doors for intruders and just waited, but found nothing. Omnius kicked the glass around the manhole and blew the seal on the top. A heavy alarm rang into the whole building as Tri-Wing Transports and Lotus's shelled the roof. Fortunately, Omnius sealed it again with diamond and titanium. He ran down the halls not recalling where he was or where he was going, just away from the possible prison scentence, or even exicution. He found an already opened door, scared by lasers and bullets. He found a sign, it read ' Entrance to Eufania '. He pressed the seal on the center and was greeted by stocks of laser rifles. Chapter 21: The Groggy Welcome Being bashed by a T-71 Laser Rifle wasnt fun, but at least it didnt kill you. Omnius had been hit harder with more blunt objects than the butt of a laser rifle. He was out for years. Sometimes he would go in and out of a limbo-type dream world- or a full awake period. But each time it only lasted a minute. He finnaly awoke at night, hearing the light and lively hum of the machines in the Medical Bay. He heard an Android voice. He leaned up and heard a conversation, " So, the empire has mobilized thier forces at the front gate? If only Omnius had gotten here sooner, and didnt alarm the police. Well, now that we know this, get Robert Lanski and his Blood Ravens to come here. He needs to know." Eytra had sounded confident, but his confidence masked his fear. He heard the android walk away and the conversation continued, " So, Eytra, are you sure that we can trust humans? " Omnius didnt hear the other android. " Yes, Eyanta, they have been with us for years. I think we should also get the K'shara and Rikar to come with us. I just hope the Culvias approves. And, Eyanta? " Eyanta responded in a girly android voice. " Yes Eytra? " Eytra hesitated before saying. " I remember when i found out that Himukaru was syping on Mars, i went to his fiance's house and killed her. I warned him about us and i think that he is looking for me. I also possesed his best friend and manservant, and he killed him. So, i think that when we lead our final fight against him, i should do it." Eyanta nodded and left. She knew he needed to be alone. He walked into the medical bay and looked at Omnius. " Are you awake yet or am i talking to myself? " Omnius sat up, he felt like his own body weight was a suit of armor. " I, i am Omnius of the planet Yikar, leader of the Rikar. I heard your con- " Eytra hushed him " I know what you heard. Do not mention it to anyone, or you will be killed. Now, you have been out for longer than i anticipated. When we rescued you, we knocked you out, and at the same time, the enemy shot you with a paralisys dart. We worked hard to counter its effects. We had gotten all of the venom out, but you were in a temporary coma for seven years. It is now the year 2090, Febuary 3rd. As for your people's status, some of them went back and some of them took refuge here. Every race is against the Himukaru and his empire. Even fellow Humans such as Robert Lanski, his wife Illana Marigold, and The Order Of The Ravens. All of the elves and the Culvias are against Himukaru. Your Rikar are too. And the K'shara have found a way to harvest chemical ' magic ' to control elements and to heal wounds. You have gotten some of it too. Apparently you have to hold up your hand and say things such as ' Fire ' or ' Heal ' and it works. But right now you need to be in the situation room." He lifted him up and took him down the long corridors of Eufania. It held a striking beauty and futuristic look. The rounded a couple corners and found the room. It was very tall, most likely for the Culvias. He entered and saw the leaders of all the factions in the allied range. Lanski, Marigold, Culvias Yinal, The Eunarian Council and himself. Chapter 22: Preperations The things Omnius missed were major! The K'shara, Rikar, and a certain amount of Humans were now sided together. 20 more Culvias came to Mars, and on a different subject, the irradiated Earth left the solar system in 2086. The K'shara also made ' man-made ' magic. It is the first magic to ever be historicaly true, and voice activated. But, the most important thing Omnius had missed was the unification of the U.F.M.P, ( United Federation of Mars Peacekeepers ) who have taken a place against the empire. ( The federation is Robert Lanski and the K'shara etc. ) They have planned an attack on them in the dead middle of next summer, and they think that the Federation doesnt know, but their spies have already known for some time now. What the Federation plans to do is train and prepare for a massive war. They have over 2,000,000 troops at ready and more in training. Thanks to science breakthroughs to K'shara scientists, the army is more advanced than the empire's. Robert Lanski has also made a branch of Ravens called the ' Blood Ravens ' , which are heavy troopers that use the new K-90 Laser Cannon, and magic as a secondary weapon. They are very succsessful at taking down platoons of empire soldiers. Also, as the struggle between the two forces greatened, they found more and more of the secret exits, so they had to block them off with diamond and nano-carbon titanium. More paths have been created, but the main one is now at the top of Mars' main mountain, ' Death Peak '. Sandstorms block out the troop movements from their base, which acts as a post for the troops. They move hidden, rather than trying to come out back in little marsway. Death Peak isnt so bad. The troops jet pack down the mountain so they can soften the fall. Today Omnius was going into combat training, for the upcoming attack. He walked in and saw one of the most advanced training centers he'd ever seen, even at his home planet. The Overseer, Alinad Stanon ( a UFMP Sergeant ) walked over to Omnius and said " I belive you are Omnius Gavetius, i recevied orders from Robert Lanski himself to welcome you to the ' Abandoned Corridors ', nick-named that becuase only an elite few will ever stand here, and oversee it. I am Alinad Stanon, a UFMP Sergeant here to oversee the operations of training and to do a good job at making sure we can beat any empire soldier. Today, you will be doing standard exersizes and weapon training. You will be in station AE-2 first, then station AF-4. Go ahead and get ready for the worst hell you will ever experience." Omnius had no fear of what lied ahead, only the courage to stand and stop Himukaru. Omnius put on the regulated jumpsuit and trained harder than any Rikar ever known to the present era. Chapter 23: Revenge Seven months after Omnius's training, Robert Lanski, a member of the Eunarian council, was walking through a gathered crowd of mixed races. He had only heard that a message was being played in the center of town. He looked up and saw Himukaru's face on the giant screen. " Tommorow we will strike your forces at death peak, and when you are forced underground, into that hole you call Eufaina, we will demolish all of your hopes and dreams to come!" The screen flikered off and the emergency sirens rang out loud! Robert rushed over to the Operations Command Center and pushed open the door. " How the hell are we supposed to get the rest of our army ready in less than a day Eytra? We only have 800,000 ready. They have over 3,000,000! What are we going to do?!?" Eytra looked at him in shock... he didnt think that they'd build an army as fast as they did. They were keeping track, but must have gotten false numbers. " I dont know, just mobilize the troops and ready them for battle. Get the majority of ships at death peak immeadiately. Get everyone to rendevous at death peak and make sure you set a good blockade." Robert nodded and went over to a city-wide announcement booth and grabbed the microphone, " I need all Blood Ravens and all groups inside the Eufanian Military to the barracks now!" Robert saw all of the Ravens, Including Marigold, his wife, rush to the barracks and the citzens go into lockdown. The barracks were so crowded, that if a single person were to fall, they wouldnt come up. He went over to the podium at the front of the barracks and began a speech, " I, Robert Lanski, am going to lead all of the troops up to death peak in five hours. I need all officers over the rank of captian, to report to me immeadiately. Thank you, and be safe. " The room was more silent than when he came in...but everyone was nervous about the defense. 20 Majors, 13 Colonels, and 3 Generals came up to Robert. They were all UFMP, but so were all of the troops now. " Alright, i need you to preportion the troops equaly so that way i can lead a wave, and you three generals can lead equal waves too." The first general, Jika, said " sir, i think we have about 2,000,000 troops all together, so if you want, we each take half of a million." Robert said " Good thinking, but im going to take 500,000 trained troops with me, so that way if we get attacked, we stand a good chance. And im taking my 100,000 Blood Ravens too. Get everyone into formation and lets head out, go it? " They all nodded and went off to rally the mass of troopers into even quantities. Robert stared out into the barracks, he looked at all of the faces of the troops and all of the forgien and other world troops, and he knew, that this would be the last time he saw them. As he started to turn back he saw Marigold trot up to his side. " So, am i coming with you? " she asked. Robert looked at her innocent face, he noticed her long and shiny red hair, her facial beauty and how she and himself should die together, if they did. " Yes Illana, you're coming with me, and you're going to stay beside me the whole time, becuase if we die, i'd rather it be together, than seperate. I love you Illana, and even though im going to command you, and be your superior officer, you'll always command my heart. " They leaned in and kissed, becuase if this was the last time of happiness they'd ever share, he wanted to remember it. About an hour later, all the troopers were mobilized into even ammounts and all had an equal ammount of vehicals following thier marches. Eytra got all of the willing androids to follow him on a small march behind Lanski. Culvias Yinal rounded the other Culvias's and the K'shara force on the march behind Eytra. The rest of the troops would follow beind Yinal, Eytra, and Lanski in sperate marches. Ensai, a Eufainian general, stayed back in Eufainia with 500 soldiers, in case they were attacked. Now that their march has begun, its time to tell what Himukaru is doing. Chapter 24: The Secret Knowlage Himukaru got recent intel that the UFMP force was on the move to death peak at a slow pace. He didnt fear whatever they had to throw at them. They had the most advanced mililtary on Mars; or so he thought. The numbers might be in his favor, but not all of the tech and people were at his dispence. He didnt have magic, or the Culvias, or even have the training regiment that the UFMP soldiers had. But, his ego and self-esteem told him wrong. He walked into the command room and looked over at the Holo-Map. It glowed dark blue, and showed a 24/7 display of encounters with UFMP scouts and exit points of Eufainia. He saw the motion tracker in the screen pulse on the UMFP army's move. It gave him the chills just thinking about killing the android who killed Yokio. " Render unto me little android, and i shall give you a more intense torture than i recived so many years ago." He looked at the screen, and in the right corner blinked a timer on the E.T.A of Robert Lanski. It said about two and a half days aprox. He told his new head general, Ikano, to rally up thier army of 3,000,000 and demolish them at death peak so that when they get home, they can celebrate thier victory and then a week later, go to Eufiania and get the tech that they had stored. He walked out of the command room and onto a balcony overlooking the city they just made, Glory's Dawn. He smelt the fresh oxygen and gave a light laugh. He liked this city alot, just enough to make anothe one after this small skirmish. He looked past the city heights and saw a very distant and small, death peak. It looked like a horrible place to fight, but was actually flat enough for the entire army to fit on. He saw their army just leaving, and the roaring citzens cheer for victory. He smiled, and then saw something he didnt expect. An Android, about the same size as him walked up to him and said, " My name is Eyanta, a former member of the Eunarian Council in Eufainia. I didnt like Eytra, the one who killed your fiance Yokio. This i know becuase he told me he did it and then knew the reason you are even on mars; to get revenge." Himukaru had a flashback of when he watched her die, and he couldnt do anything about it. He took a deep breath, and looked at Eyanta. " So, maybe this is a good sign. I never told anyone about her, and even her name. If what you say is true, and you know this ' Eytra ' and where he hides... then ill let you join us. " Eyanta smiled, she knew just how to make this all turn into her favor. " Good, " she said " Then should we begin on how to attack them? " Himukaru got the chills again, and this time, he knew he would get what he wanted for so long. Chapter 25: The Battle For Mars Robert Lanski looked up at the rocky ceiling. He didnt like closed spaces similar to caves. And fighting in one would be even worse. He strolled past the vast lines of his army. They all made him very proud; they became his image of a perfect army. His ravens were his upmost favorite though. He walked over to one of his generals, Sam O'Brien. " Hey Sam, i was just checking to see if ' it ' got ther-" Sam interupted Robert, " No need to worry Robert, it got to the village of Inasigarid, they have a treaty with all of the factions to keep the peace. It got there just a couple of minutes ago too. They gave ' it ' to a Gerald Wolfe, a former member of the UFMP, so you're alright. " Robert now knew, that if he were to die, he would have no regrets now. Everything he needed to do was now finished, well all except one thing, win this battle. He walked over to a portable command post and looked at his motion tracker. He also had a sensor grid, used for tracking large ammounts of troops, in this case, an army. He heard at least 100 ' Bird Boy's ' come in the side of the mountian. They were some of the finest flying vehichles in the UFMP. He looked at the timer on the plasma screen of the command post. The enemy army would be here to fight their differences out in 87 minutes. He was lucky to have everything ready in time for the fight, becuase they wouldnt wait for him to fix everything. He heard the comunications channel A2cl: UFMP RESTRICTED say that the rest of the troops on his side were also ready, atleast mostly. He walked over to Sam and said " Sam, get everyone ready to fight, they'll be here in about 80 minutes. " Sam looked nervous, but ready to die for his belief and for his commander and leader. " Yes, sir. They will be ready shortly. " Sam walked over to a tower and climbed up. He got a microphone that led to speakers throughout the cave and said, " Now is the time men, this will decide our fate for all of our years on Mars. Get ready for the Battle for Mars. " The men cheered and strapped up. They all had the same expression as Sam. Robert went over and said, " Nice speech old friend. That should have been me though. But i congratulate you Sam. Get ready, we arent done yet. " Sam saluted. and Robert returned it. He watched as all of his soldiers readied for their demise, he knew that they were the bravest men he would ever know. He saw Marigold come over take off her helmet. " So, is this really what it comes to Robert? All of our troops being forced to die in a cave while their leader is sitting in a room watching us die? " She looked at him in concern, but also knew this was the way things had to be. " Belive me when i say this Illana, if there was another way, i would take it. But, this is the way things have to be. " She took her helmet and strapped it onto her head. " Well then sir, let us die in the glory of our friends and family. And also one thing, did ' it ' get to Inasigarid safe? " He nodded and she smiled. " Well, at least that is safe. So are you ready Robert? " He grabbed his custom P3AL Laser Repeater, his combat gear from the Blood Ravens and said, " Its time to kick ass! " Illana laughed and sighed. He always knew how to make her laugh in a stressful time. They both headed out to the center of the formation and started shouting orders. Everyone started to settle and wait for the enemy to barge in, but only silence came. Himukaru and Eyanta were in a LOTUS when he asked her about how Eytra knew him. She told him about how when Eytra first landed on Earth, he crashed into a house of a man named Gyan Hinikaro. She said he crashed into his house when Gyan was little. Gyan hated Himukaru, he was very jealous of his money and power, and how his father sent the first people to Mars. Eytra knew this mission and was trying to kill the man who drove the Eufanian people underground. The unlucky Eytra was told Himukaru's dad died three years ago. He then set out a mission to torture the son of the man who killed his life. Himukaru understood why he did all of this. But why so severe? It wasnt right. Himukaru was glad to finnaly be getting revenge. He was also mad that Gyan betrayed him so badly. He was never betrayed by his allies, but then again, he also never knew who was a real friend. The LOTUS was slowing and eventually paused, and landed. The latch on the hanger door released and the door fell silently and slowly. He and Eyanta walked out onto the rocky terrain. Himukaru frowned. He already missed his smooth chambers. Eyanta saw a portable weapons rack, walked over and selected a A3-sL Energy Cannon. The ' EC ' as it is commonly called has three packs on its side that have the charges shot from the gun. Each pack generates 10 shots until the packs have to be charged again. The packs ' Energy ' is dark matter mixed with hydrongenic radiation. The dark matter locks the target in place and the radiation kills them in about five seconds. She took 10 packs from the rack. Each weighed about three pounds so she couldnt carry alot. As the LOTUS took off behind him, Himukaru adjusted his imperial combat armor, signaled Eyanta, and went over to the Battle Commands post. There were unknown generals there waiting for him. He walked over to them and saluted. They returned the salute and one said " Sir, we have readings from remote sensors under the mountain showing that the main enemy force is optimal postition for the detination. I suggest that we use our chan- " Himukaru held up a finger. " I know that this would disrupt thier main army in front, but i think we should strike them continuesly they start to fall back. Surely they wouldnt send their entire army, so when they retreat, we will detonate the bomb and obliterate them! " The generals look impressed. They always thought leaders of empires were smart, but not this smart. They all said in unison " We will carry out the order immeadiately, sir! " He nodded and watched them run off to the army of over 3,000,000. He knew they would win, becuase if they couldnt put down an invasion, who's to say he could stop a revolution. Eyanta walked over to him. She had 10 royal assassins with her. Himukaru smiled and said, " Well, once you give me the signal, i will blow the mines set up on the side of the cave, and start the attack. " Eyanta nodded and they all went to set up the mines. What he didnt tell them is that the mines were already there. Eyanta pulled up at the zone where they would climb to place the mines. She handed them each a standard heavy mine, and they started the climb. They all got there in about ten minutes and thats when they saw the other mines. She pulled out her communicator and radioed in to Himukaru. " Whats going on here? " She just heard dead air. The royal assassins droped the mines and hit their EB ( emergency booster ) packs. They spun toward camp. Eyanta looked for something to grab but remembered she was on a mountain! She looked around and saw the last flash she'd ever see. Himukaru saw the explosion, and smiled. He thought ' even the best of friends must be incinerated to rule the world. ' Thats about when he signaled the invasion to begin. The Imperial Army marched forward to the cave's great opening. The LOTUS bombers flew overhead. The UFMP's ' Bird Boy's ' flew out of the cave, and the great fight commenced. Hundreds of aircraft let their cannons fly like fireworks. Dozens of bombers and fighters were incinerated on impact of bullets, lasers and missles. It looked like a classic Dog Fight from the mid 20th century. Soldiers from both sides came out, guns blazing. Lines of men instantly fell from heavy gunfire. Bullets and laser pulses slung from somking gun barrels, making men fall on both sides. In the first initial 5 minutes, the UFMP force was taking more lives than losing, but after that, a Nyino Helivan Bomb, or NHB was dropped right on their forces. They lost 200,000 right there. Robert Lanski sprinted through lines of burnt and torn bodies until he was at the front lines. He grabbed a Heavy Hill Drainer, Heavy Plasma Chain Gun, and let the pulses fly. Dozens of soldiers died on the first hit, and others died minutes later from the burns of the acidic content in plasma. He looked around at the soldiers shooting and falling one by one, and was proud to see that they were still alive. Hours after hours passed as the firefight raged on, and neither armies had gained the advantage they both thought they had. The most Important person Robert was to rely on in the battle was Eytra and his androids, but they were all gone. Maybe they left, or maybe they died, but they were needed badly. Gunfire started to decrease as the sky lay the night blanket on itself. Robert had lost most of his troops and wouldn't recive any until they all died. He had 152,864 troops left, 43,000 being Blood Ravens. He sent two Regiments of soldiers to form a barricade arround the cave entrance and protect it at all costs. He walked around the cave, looking at all of the dead and wounded. He walked past a soldier who was calling himself, The Reclaimer of Innocence. He was ranting about how he would rise past the iron grip of war and free those who wanted to be saved, like relidgeous bobble heads. He took a group of aprox. 30 people outside, and never saw them. He didnt even waste his time on fools like him. Robert was over by the Command Center when he saw the major casulties list. It listed officers of great importance who were slain, and retrived. He didn't see Illana when he walked in, but he didnt fear. He strode his finger along the list in the plasma screen, counting all of his dead friends and allies. UFMP Sergeant Alinad Stanon was reported to be stabbed repeatevly in the head, and Culvias Yinal was taken down by a volley of Missles. He kept going down the list, greiving each and everyone until he saw it. Major General Illana Lanski-Marigold, captured and killed. Wristbound heartbeat monitor stopped at apox. 11:34 pm September 9th, 2090. He looked at it again and there is was, as plain as the cave he was in. He didnt want to belive it, so he did a re-configuration test, scrolled down the list, ans saw it again. He looked at it, and thought of her, knowing what they can do to prisoners is very hard, but to the enemy army's leader's wife, that was a h\\whole other story. He looked around for the nearest gun. Unfortunatly for him, there wasnt one, so he went over to a trooper and ordered his Kl-9i Pistol. The soldier unknowingly gave him his suicide weapon. Robert looked into the chamber, and a bullet was loaded. He pulled back the butt, arming it, took off his helmet and yelled " Its Over!! " and pulled the trigger. Chapter 26: If only you knew Robert woke up to the familiar feeling of military grade plasma cuffs. Great. More locking up was sure to be in order. He looked around and was suprised to see himself in a jail cell, very similar to an Imperial insaine aslylum cell. He knew that the battle was over. All hope for justice was lost, or was it. The package he had delivered was one final thing to end this, from beyond his grave. He heard heavy footsteps from outside the cell. He recognized them as boots. He heard the tapping of fingers on a securi-pad, and saw the door vanish. He looked at the long, over streached shadow on the floor and looked up. It was none other than Himukaru. He walked around the cell, taunting Roberts captivity. He bended down and looked at Robert in the eyes. " it looks like you and i are going to chat Robert. Right now. " Himukaru snapped his fingers and the guard in front of the door space walked over and handed him Robert's ' Diamond Diablo '. Robert looked up at it, it looked as if it hadnt been touched. Himukaru smiled as he pulled the blade out and revealed its crimson stained blade. " You see Robert, this is a new day and age where we both will soon be too old fight out our problems physicaly. But today, things must end. I wanted to let you in on a secret too. The date is now January 4, 2091. You have lost everything you worked so hard for. Every race but human is now extinct on Mars, and i own the planet. The so called ' army ' you conjoured up was a meere distraction to the prize of owning Mars. And by the way, Eytra slaughtered your troops before i even stepped foot in your cave. He and i have taken a liking to each other now. He is going to be leader of my army. Looks like your life was just like your friends, they were all better without you. " Himukaru pulled up the blade in his hand and swung it down. Robert winced, but noticed he wasnt dead. Himukaru started laughing and then sheathed the blade and handed it to the guard. " Well Robert, this is where you and i part ways. Hope you rot. " Himukaru spat on him, and left. The guard followed and shut the door. Robert looked up at the ceiling and he saw Illana's face shimmer into form. She was smiling, like she used to when he would make her laugh. " Its time Robert. Come with me into the great beyond." Robert looked at her face, he knew it would be the last thing his mortal body would see. He felt something shift inside him. He looked up at Illana, and took her hand. Epilouge Himukaru was looking out into the surface of Mars, he noticed it was more rocky and red everytime. He held a glass of Mikihan wine. Made from the Mikihan family in Japan on 1889. His grandfather gave him his collection of 200 bottles. He drank 83 in the past year. He noticed he was low and reached for the bottle, but he backed his hand because he had a planet-wide statement televising his comments on the defeat of Robert Lanski. The battle for Mars was a great battle, but the small fighters from it who survived, were even tougher. They got rid of the last of them three weeks ago, but didnt want to jump the gunon the news too fast. He gulped down the rest of his beverage and walked into his bedroom to change into someting more official. He chose his outfit for when he last saw Lanski. It was a standard general dress uniform, with all of his medals, but also had his emporers crown. He remembered the same day on when Lanski died, hearing the news shortly after he left. He knew it was best for the empire. He strapped on all of his gear, and smiled. He felt ready to take on the world with no distractions.
