Aftermath- I Will Return Bastard had long been frustrated. He had been the leader of this rebellion. He had personally shot down many pilots. But ironically, his guns just weren't strong enough. He had failed too many times to shoot down a ship, simply because they hadn't been damaged beforehand. But now, he was caught. They had finally kicked him out, depriving him of any way of overthrowing their tyranny. He sighed, and looked behind him. And there, also waiting to get on the elevator to go down into the caverns, was Steel. Except, well, he wasn't wearing handcuffs, and wasn't surrounded by guards. Steel was alone. He had no way to talk to the man, only a few feet away. But he did look at him. And met his eyes briefly. They were both from the same cavern. Bastard knew that Steel had kept his conflicts out of the situation. But he was still from Bountiful cavern, and had felt guilty fighting against the rebellion that originated from where his family lived. Steel broke the eye contact, passing where Bastard was being held. He would be taken down separately under armed guard, to be put in prison along with the rest of the dissidents. More evidence of the tyranny of Ironsides. But still, despite Steel's betrayal, Bastard respected the man. He nodded in his direction, even though he was no longer looking. Bad Wolf sat on the roof of the hangar. The krell weren't coming back. The lifebuster wasn't coming back. It was probably just a brief respite. And she missed M-Bot. Where had he gone with Doomslug? What had happened? She had been waiting there for a while, when someone else climbed up to join her. Junior. Junior didn't say anything, but also looked over the surface. It was dreadfully boring, pocketed with blast holes and rocks. "Are you going to choose a new ship?" Junior finally asked. "I don't know. I don't know that I want to. We have no leader, I lost my friend, and what for?" Bad Wolf replied despondently. "I don't know either. We'll probably be folded into a new Flight, I guess." Junior shrugged. Bad Wolf just shook her head. Junior left the roof, and Bad Wolf continued to watch. And was watching as M-Bot appeared out of nowhere just outside of the base. The ship appeared midair, and bounced on the ground several times. She gasped in shock, and then jumped off the roof. It was a long jump, but she stuck the landing well, then took off running. M-Bot was not looking good. But Bad Wolf was more than willing to fix him again. And Doomslug was inside, fluting exultantly next to a pile of blue and yellow mushrooms. Mushrooms colored like her? What in the world? But Bad Wolf didn't question it as she embraced Doomslug. Doomslug fluted awkwardly in return. Steel descended into the caverns, as Alta base disappeared above him. It would be a long while before he saw it again. But he promised himself he would return. Even if his medical procedure left him without being able to fly, he could at least be on the ground directing ships. Continuing to resist the Krell. In the crowded elevator, he held up what he had been given by Ironsides. A gold DDF pin. To remember. He smiled, and put it in his pocket. Indeed. He would be back. ___________________ The Pilots have won the game! (barely) Master Sheet Dead Doc Rebel Doc 1. Snipexe, "Scissors" Pilot, Wingmate to Joe2. Xinoehp512, "Llerk" Pilot3.
