"Moon...." Arianthe looked back at him. She picked him up and gave him the briefest but most heartfelt hug. "Thank you."

She turned and took off after Harvest Vulture. As she flew, Arianthe opened up her wings more and pushed the boosters in her hands and feet to carry her further.

Unfortunately, Edge had done the math. There were three targets: Harvest Vulture, the carrier, and the Death Rogumer.

Edge quickly sliced through the last of the enemies and saw the smaller ship taking off. "Moon," he said as he fully unfolded the boosters on his back. "Give 'em hell."

The boosters flared to life. Edge flew across the hanger, gaining speed at an incredible rate. His feet glided across the even surface of the floor, providing no resistance. He broke the sound barrier just as he ran out of runway, launching himself like a bullet towards the Death Rogumer. The boosters continued to burn, and his smaller maneuverability thrusters adjusted his course.

There was not actual impact as he landed on the ship. Had there been a loud crash, the reploids on board might have stood a chance. As it was, Edge cut his thrusters and used the momentum he'd built up to send him sailing past his enemies, slicing each as he passed. Grinding to a halt, he turned to see Harvest Vulture standing on the top deck.

"Nice ship!" he called out, before disappearing below deck to find a way to disable it.

Moon dashed inside heading from the hanger into the belly of the ship, firing at enemies as he ventured inside. A hail of return fire met Moon as he disappeared in the heat of battle.

Harvest Vulture awaited Arianthe standing atop his attack ship, his twin scythes drawn, He flew forward to meet Arianthe in mid air. "You're on the wrong side of history. Will you really lay down your life for the old order, that will cast you aside as soon as you're no longer useful? They'll throw you aside and brand you a Maverick as well, just like Storm Eagle." He said as he hurled one scythe like a boomerange and rushed in with a wide swing with the other.

"Wake up Vulture!!" Arianthe swung her left blade so that it deflected the scythe thrown at her. She quickly brought up her right blade to parry Vulture's attack. "Storm Eagle...I'll always believe that he never truly betrayed us. He got sick! He got sick just like you're getting sick! Vulture don't make me do this...I don't want to have to do to you what X did to Storm Eagle!"

"We're friends! We're comrades!! Damn it, Vulture!! OPEN YOUR EYES!!" Arianthe kicked him away and brought her swords together to form her gun. "Storm Eagle hasn't left us. He lives on...In me!!"

"TWIN TORNADO!!" Arianthe screamed, shooting the attack that was very remniscent of Storm Eagle's Storm Tornado attack...

That was to be expected...as it contained half of the design.

The inside of the ship was a labyrinth. Edge ran opposite the flow of traffic; grateful that none of the enemies he saw were combat models, or bothered to look at the ceiling.

Finally, he found long corridor ending in a reinforced door. Two heavily armed combat models flanked the entrance to the command room, and both raised their weapons at the intruder running across the ceiling.

Harvest Vulture was hurled backward by Arianthe's attack. One of his wings snapped off from the sheer wind force, and he began to spiral downward, leaving a trail of strange black smoke. It looked similar to what Mugen emitted before. The corruption that Harvest Vulture spoke about before. Could this be some physical manifestation of it?

"Vulture!!" Arianthe screamed. Her eyes rested just for a moment on the murky black smoke. She hesitated just for half a second before diving after her comrade, wings folded against her back in a full swan dive to catch him.

Harvest Vulture for a moment reached out to Arianthe. As his hand drew closer to hers he shook his head and slapped her hand away, then hurled his other scythe at her. "It's too late for me. Stay back or you'll be infected too." He said in a brief moment of clarity.

With his remaining wing he struggled to regain control The black smoke began to take shape where his wing was severed, just as before forming a new wing, as Harvest Vulture took flight again. He met Arianthe in mid air. His pupils became tiny red dots. He had nothing to say. He'd changed. He reached out, catching his returning scythes.

He flew at Arianthe slashing with his scythe blades.

"No..."

It almost came out as a broken sob if Arianthe had the ability to cry. There was however, a silver lining on the cloud of despair. Vulture had said he was infected.

Am I still recording this mission? Good. I'll hold off Vulture until I get word from the others that their part is done too.

Arianthe reached out and blew another twin tornado attack at Vulture. Would that not work, she'd detach the weapon into the two swords and she would meet him head to head.

Edge pressed his back to the wall. Around the corner, the guards had stopped firing their weapons. They hadn't moved from the door; they seemed to be more interested in keeping him from advancing than actually disabling him. At this range, in a narrow corridor, with their superior firepower, Edge didn't have a chance of cutting them down.

The blades on his elbows reversed and the armored plates on his forearms retracted, revealing a set of gatling guns. He dropped to the floor, paused, then jumped across the opening, firing at the enemies. A hail of shots flew past him, but the reploids had been expecting him to still be on the ceiling, and by the time they adjusted their aim he was back in cover. Unfortunately, his own shots were much weaker, and he hadn't scored any consecutive hits. Even if he could whittle them away like this, it take way too long. He needed a new plan of attack, and fast.

Vulture pressed his attack forcing himself directly against Arianthe's attack and ignoring damage as he rushed ahead. He met her blade to blade slicing with his blades like a scissor.

Meanwhile on the whaleship Moon had made his way to the cockpit. He'd encountered heavy resistance on the way, and while his speed offered him the ability to dodge, his injuries had piled up. It was difficult to use agility as an advantage in a narrow area, leaving him to force his way through. The pilot turned around. A low grade reploid designed for a single purpose.

"This ship must reach its destination," He said.

"Cease all hostile activities and land this vessel," Moon replied.

"Impossible. This vessel must complete its mission for the cause," The pilot answered.

"This unit must complete its mission. This vessel is hostile, and can not be allowed to reach its destination. This unit will use force if necessary," Moon responded.

"This vessel much reach its destination. It is for the cause," said the pilot.

The two had much the same mannerisms. Perhaps for them this manner of communication was the most direct method.

"Define cause," Moon asked.

"Cause: To initiate a global scale reploid conflict. To create worldwide chaos and ongoing warfare in order to realize the true nature of reploid kind." The pilot answered.

"Cause is contrary to this units purpose. Final warning. Surrender, or this unit will use force."

Moon was cut off as the pilot drew a pistol buster and opened fire. At this range Moon wasn't able to dodge, only return fire. The shot pierced Moon's armor leaving a hole in his chest. Moon's return volley had blown the pilot's head entirely off leaving it slouched lifeless to the cockpit floor.

Moon held his wound, and approached the controls. The course was already programmed in, and locked. The pilot ensured his task would be complete with or without him. Moon looked at the controls and winced as he grasped the wound. "Illogical. What purpose does the sensation of pain serve for a non-biological being?" Moon said as he tried to shrug off his injury.

Scouting and skirmishing was Moon's area. He didn't know how to operate an aircraft like this, much less override the controls. But there was one thing he could do. He drew his bladed and stabbed them through the control panel charging an electrical current between them frying the control circuitry of the vessel.

The whaleship without controls to maintain the engines began to lose altitude. It would probably crash into the ruins of Abel City.

Moon attempted to activate his com. "This is Moon. Requesting extraction."

He got no response.

"Requesting immediate extraction."

Still no response.

"HQ this is Hunter Moon. Imminent danger. Requesting immediate extraction. Urgent!"

A response came. Garbled through heavy static.

"We can't get fffffffff on your locaskkkkktt. Radiation interfffffffff..."

The signal was lost after that. Moon realized the craft was descending rapidly.

"This unit....does not wish to cease functioning." He said as he tried to activate his boosters. Too badly damaged. He wasn't capable of true flight anyway. Not at this altitude. But there were several smaller craft in the hanger he recalled. Moon rushed out of the cockpit trying desperately to make his way back to a potential escape route.

"Moon, Edge! Come in!" Arianthe tried to remain calm over her com-link. "Is the mission complete!?"

Looking up, she saw Vulture charge her again. At this rate, she would lose all fuel she had to fly if they didn't finish! She ducked under Vulture's scissor attack and charged with her elbow pointed out to tackle him back the midsection, hoping to throw him off course.

"This is not a good idea," Edge said to himself. He'd backtracked until he found one of the reploids he'd passed earlier. The poor repair unit didn't stand a chance; it's head hadn't even hit the floor before Edge had picked up its body and started making his way back to the control room. Now, he was holding the body in front of him, trying to set his resolve. "Now or never."

The gunfire erupted again as he stepped into the hallway. Edge charged forward, his boosters pushing him and his new shield towards the enemies. Stray shots singed his armor, but the few well-aimed shots were absorbed. Within seconds, he'd closed the distance and threw the remains of the body at the guards. The corridor was too narrow for them both to dodge, and one of them collapsed under the attack. The other quickly found his weapon arm sliced off, and another blade through his forehead.

Unfortunately, the blade got lodged. The other reploid made it back to his and Edge found himself staring down the barrel of its weapon. He was barely able to get his head out of the way, but his shoulder took a direct hit. Edge jumped up, putting his knee blade through the side of the enemy's head. They both collapsed to the ground, but Edge was still functional. He braced his foot against the reploid and freed his knee, then did the same with his arm blade. The weapon came free, but his arm fell to his side, failing to respond to the signals he sent it. The shot to his shoulder had severed his control of it.

Quote:
"Moon, Edge! Come in! Is the mission complete!?"


"Almost," Edge replied. He entered the control room and found a single pilot unit.

"This ship must..." was all it got out before Edge cut him down. Using the blaster from his good arm, he shot the control panel to hell.

"Abandon ship," Edge said into his radio, beginning his trek back to the upper deck.

Both ships descending rapidly, Vulture screamed out as he wrestled with Arianthe, grabbing her, and going into a dive toward the ground. He'd locked his scythe blades behind her back using them like claws to cling to her wings as he dove downward.

Meanwhile Moon was running uphill as the whaleship tilted further and further. Aircraft were coming loose from their moorings and falling down toward him, forcing him to duck and dodge to make his way there. Something had to be operational. Then there was the question of if Moon could even fly an aircraft.

He spotted something familiar. How it ended up here was anyone's guess. Probably scavenged from the many abandoned and lost aircraft of the war. It was actually a light orbital vehicle. It was intended for scouting near orbit, and in emergencies used as an escape pod. It wasn't anything ever meant for battle. Moon felt a familiarity with it.

Climbing inside the controls felt familiar. He operated a few buttons and levers and the craft powered on. Its repulsor engines gave it lift just before its moorings broke. It didn't even need to fly out. By this point the whaleship was in a vertical nosedive. It only needed to remain in place as the gargantuan craft fell around it.

Moon took a moment to steady the craft and got a look at the situation. The Death Rogumer was falling. Where were his allies? Were they on the Death Rogumer? Below he saw two reploids in a dive. He put the craft into a dive and followed down after them. He got even with Arianthe and opened the cockpit reaching out to Arianthe.

One of the few sensors Edge was gifted with was an altimeter. He wasn't meant for flying, but long vertical climbs were definitely in his wheelhouse. Right now, that sensor was telling him he needed to move faster. Given their current rate of descent, they were going to hit the ground soon, and hard.

All around him, other reploids were too busy struggling to stay upright to challenge him. Edge, on the other hand, had little problem running along the slanted floors and walls. Finally, he emerged on the upper deck. Arianthe was nowhere in sight, but she could fly, and he couldn't, so he'd have to assume she was, for the moment, safer than he was.

He took in the scene around him: the length of the ship, the speed of their descent, their current height, and the angle of the ship. If he timed this right, he'd break nearly every part of his frame, but there was a chance he could survive. He faced the back of the ship, waiting. A little longer...a little longer...NOW!

He took off, climbing up the slanted deck of the falling ship, pushing his boosters to their limit. He held his broken arm in the other, not able to use it for leverage, but at least it wasn't working against him. He dodged falling debris and enemies, trying to keep up his speed. He reached the back of the ship just before it hit the ground, and launched himself into the air.

It was the same maneuver he'd used to get onto the ship, except this time he didn't have a target to land on. He closed his eyes, sailing through the empty air, letting his body go limp. If he didn't resist the impact, he could reduce the damage from it.

Current elevation:

Edge snapped his altimeter off. Let's let it be a surprise.
