Under a fiery nights sky Henry rechecked his weapon trying to ignore the origin of his artificial light. The moon was on fire, moon dust and rock bellowed into space covering half the sky in glowing embers. Secondary explosions littered the surface of the moon as city upon city was destroyed. The year was 2050 it was the 30th year of enlightenment wars. By attacking the moon the savage minds were breaking the rules in a last gasp attempt for total victory. Henry and his fellow young solders were about to hit back in what was to be the most bloody and fierce battle of the war.  At fifteen he was the oldest member of his squad, unlike the younger soldiers he knew the fear of death was futile, his greatest fear was to have a pointless death, to stumble before engaging the enemy.
