Is this how I'm going to spend the last moments of my life? In a ship that smells like rusting metal covered by the fresh scent of lemon? NO. I refuse. I fucking refuse. But what can I do?

This damn war. It's the reason why. Why I wont stay with her forever. Ever since Luna (or the Moon as Earthans call it) wanted to be free of their chains in the stupid Luna-Earth Coalition (LEC).

 We were sent down to Earth to set off strategically placed genetic hazard bombs, blocking off ship's sensors to Luna's platoon, disabling infrared laser cannon guns, even unarming soldier's armor; jamming signals to repair wounds. We were both excited to serve Luna. Especially her. She was a bit of a tomboy, she loved to fight. But as soon as we stepped foot on fresh Earthan soil and air that smelled like real oxygen, we were surrounded. Twenty-one guys with artillery I've never seen before. Krystal would of probably known what they were. She was smart like that. I put my ear on the cold steel wall where I knew she'd be on the other side. Isolated. Not in my arms. not ready to kill but ready to die. I almost cried.

  Ever since they captured us, they sent us on a small vessel onto Mars - The Execution Planet. Since Earth was too good for anyone to die there. Two days from now. And we'd both be dead. Fucking war. I knew I should've convinced Krystal not to enlist in The Brars. Krystal...

  Her long dark purple hair, blue and gold eyes, and perfect figure... I layed on my back and let thoughts of her engulf me to sleep

????????????????????????????????????

I couldn't stand not knowing what the fucking time was. It felt like it was midnight when I woke up. I still couldn't believe that I was never was going to see Krystal again. Before I die I wish that I could see her, hold her, kiss her behind the ear like she loves. Just once before I go...

It seemed like the cuffs were tightening. The cold hard steel floor burned my back and legs. I wanted to get up but what was the point if I wasn't going to see Krystal again? Can someone put me out of my misery already...

There was a bang from the wall. Where Krystal would be. Krystal! What the fuck are they doing to her? Wait a pronoce, aren't these walls soundproof? More banging, no a scratching, from the wall. Destroying the cold hard wall. I quickly got to my feet and backed up to the other side of the room, prepared to fight. The scratching got more cruel and gruesome and I could see that in the dim light of the room that a crude shape like an ellipse was sprouting from the wall.

"What the hell..."

  The ellipse fell and crashed to the ground. 

Her blue and gold eyes lit up even this mute cage. She was smiling and her hands were free but both were bloody and mangled. She ran up to me and wrapped her arms around me. I smiled and reality slowly began drifting away. In a world with just me and Krystal.

"Oh God, Oh God, I missed you so much!" she squealed into my shoulder

"Shhhhhh" I reprimanded her. There was still a decent size crew of about 20 here. Even though the walls were soundproof.

She lifted her face from my body and gave me a crazy expression.

"Oh, shut up" she whispered and kissed me fiercely on the lips.

 My hands were being restricted from how badly I wanted to touch her. I really have missed her so much. The kiss was passionate and messy and it ended up with us both on the floor, noses touching a smug smile plastered on our faces

"How did you even get out of the handcuffs?" I asked

  She smiled and positioned herself so that she was atop my lap. Why did she have to be so adorable? Krystal went in her pocket and pulled out what looked like a neon red key card.

  "Jamming device for lockables. Not body scannable and I hid it in my bra." She smiled and waved it over my wrists, unlocking the handcuffs.  I bent over to kiss her again, stroking her hair. She couldn't get any better.

"And what about your hands? I really hate--"

She ignored me and got up. She put her hand in her pocket and pulled out a mini laser cannon. Only 25 plasma-hertz at most. No wonder her hands are so messed up. She burned her hands ten times over. She looked back at me and smiled.

"We're going back to Luna, Mark" And she got started on that wall. All I could do was admire her beauty, i knew she wouldn't my help.

?????????????????????????????

  Two minutes later, the wall had that same weird ellipse shape carved into it and we were out. But no guards out, no examiner bots, not anything. All it was was an empty corridor and another hall that led to the escape pods. Weird. 

  We ran out to the escape pods and set a course back to Luna. I kissed Krystal again and held her hand tight.

We were going home.

All was good until the holographic image spanned across the pod.

Escape Pod detects Luna life form aboard,

reroute back to Mars.
