We had not made but 20 yards before we were surrounded by rebels. At least it was'nt Union soldiers.
" Get on the ground or we will shoot you!" A rebel soldier barked out at us. I moved toward him and started to say who I was.
" Im Mari Alvera, Captain of the rebel special forces group 1002. These Union scum kidnapped me and try to kill me!" The soldier immediately untied me and gave me a gun. Otto just glared at me before yelling at me like a stupid big brother he is.
" Well are you going to untie me or what? I tried to save you and your going to lead me out by gun point!" I had the gun pointed at his head. I smiled evilly, he was going to pay for kidnapping me.
" BANG! Just kidding I got you did'nt I? Any way tell me where your holding all my stuff and I might let your private live." I shot a look at the young man and I smelt the fear on him. Of course he led me to the confiscated goods vault and I got my brace, collar and weapons they took from me. The rebel soldiers also took some other goodies to take to home base. While I was waiting I crouched down in front of the private who was sitting down in the corner. He just looked up at me then back to the ground, I started growling at him and his eye's shot up to mine. I smiled at his fear and patted his back as I got up. " I aint going to hurt you. Well as long as you don't try anything." He just shook his head and went back to looking at the ground. One of the rebel commanders was calling my name. I remember starting under him when I was a kid, guy was a total ass but he was like a father to me.
" Mari what is with the you and scaring people?" He said with a laugh.
" I have a bad ass reputation to upkeep." I smiled at him. When we were done getting all the stolen supplies we headed out. The commander had me escorting the prisoners as we made our way through the underground of the west oasis. One of the younger rebel soldiers kept eyeing me and was creeping me out.
" You keep looking at me and I will put a bullet in your head." I snarled at him. He quickly turned away from me.
" Sorry its just rumors said you ate people."
" Well if you were wondering it taste like pig." He picked up the pace as I laughed. People in the special forces were all Union experiments gone wrong. So their was always rumors we were monsters among the regular soldiers. After a while I started to embrace the rumors, but now they were getting ridiculous. We finally made it to a topside access point, it was a war zone up there. Union soldiers sending in seekers, Rebels shooting a hail of bullets. The commander started yelling over the chaos.
" We have who we need, we are going to head to extraction point. I don't want anyone going off in war, stay vigil. I want everyone home for dinner." Going through a war zone is like going through the seven levels of hell. As we were running a seeker caught my attention. The beast locked on to my scent knowing I was more of a challenge to take down and started running with explosive energy. I fell behind the group and pulled out my knife. I would have had been fine if my brother didn't open his big mouth. He saw I was going to take on the seeker and ran to my side. The movement caught the seekers attention and he bolted toward my brother. As the beast jumped at my brother I sent the knife through it's eye ripping all the way to the tail. The black blood sprayed on me as the animal fell to the ground. I grabbed my brother and ran toward the group the blood stinging my eyes.
" Next time Otto, when a seeker goes for your throat im letting it. Don't get in my way." I pushed past him and met up with the commander at the extraction point.
" You look like hell what happened?"
" Stupid prisoners is what happened." I replied flatly. The plane flew in and sent down a latter. Once aboard we started for the rebel base camp in the southern desert. Besides almost being shot down twice and the seeker blood dissolving my clothes away the ride was quiet. Base camp was just a couple of tents on the surface, but underground it was a maze of tunnels and rooms. We didn't waste time getting debriefed. I couldn't even get changed and showered when they were asking me what happened. I told them everything I knew when I was imprisoned. The next question caught my attention.
" What should we do with the prisoners."
" Kill them!" Was my first reaction. My brother just glared at me.
" What? Your a traitor against the Rebel cause. Its only fair."
" No Mari, even though you hate your brother he is a higher up in the Union Army and could know valuable information. And don't forget he saved you." Was what the commander said. I was thinking about what he said and came up with a answer to his statement.
" Well if you decide to kill him afterwards I wont try to stop you, but what about the other one." I looked at the young private, he just looked nervously around the room.
" I love you too sister, but I will not tell you anything if you don't grant my man immunity." The commander was silent for about 2 seconds then spoke.
" Granted. You both will be under the watch of Mari. Mari show them your quarters and get cleaned you look like shit. Dismissed."
" But sir, you got to be kidding me!"
" Dismissed!" I shot him a angry look and made them follow me. I took them down to the special units living area. It was a big, open room in the center of the base that had smaller rooms branching off. In the main area their was training equipment, kitchen, and a computer system. I showed them my room and went to the public showers. After I got out I went back to my room and found my brother sitting quietly. He turned toward me with a serious face.
" We need to talk Zena."
