Drums of War

Chapter 3

Honeymooner's Retreat

***

*A Week Later*

Krystal leant against the balcony wall of her room on the cruise ship 'Skycutter'. It was midnight by the ships standards. The view of endless space in front of her glittered with the light of various stars. Directly below the ship was the planet Kail, the planet is a frozen forrest which makes it a very popular spot for honeymooners and romantics, a small planet, but thriving with life. Krystal had been here once before with Kari back in her earlier teenage years, they stayed at a small village next to a small lake and large covering of forrest. When the 'Skycutter' landed on the planet tomorrow morning she planned on taking Fox and Marcus to the same spot for the day, she hoped that they would enjoy the trip as much as Kari and her did all those years ago. Krystal decided to admire the view some more before returning to bed.

***

Reece desperately searched around the wooden decking of the pool, checking under every pillow, seat or towel. The low amount of lighting made it even harder for him. He believed he had left his wrist watch around the pool, he took it off before he entered the pool as it wasn't water proof. "Oh don't listen to Kadie I said." he grumbled as he looked under a nearby chair, "Oh I won't forget it I said." Reece continued to grumble as he continued his search. He continued to search for another five minutes before frustration took over, he swore and kicked a nearby chair, forgetting he wasn't wearing shoes he soon felt the pain hit his foot, he swore again as he shook his foot to relive the pain. Teeth bared angrily he continued his search, hoping that some kid hadn't stolen it. He realised that the ship had started its decent towards the planet surface, he knew it would only be a matter of time before the pool was full of people again.

***

Todd and Lola lay on their bed, watching a show on the 'Skycutter's' own television network, it was more enjoyable seeing that there were no commercials. They took drinks from their glasses full of wine. Finishing their glasses they snuggled close together, they kissed before falling asleep in each others arms.

***

"Sir our target has just started its decent towards the surface." a female monkey technician told her superior, the monitor was clearly targeting the 'Skycutter'. The female lizard smirked,

"Affirmative." she replied, she pressed a button on her gauntlet communicator, "Mr. President, request permission to execute code K7-Alpha."

"Permission granted. Proceed with code K7-Alpha." the president replied. The lizard, nodded,

"Roger that." she replied, she pressed the same button on her gauntlet, ending the communication link. "Mrs. Void you have permission to fire." she told the monkey, the monkey nodded,

"Affirmative miss." she nodded, she flipped a switch, the weapon begun to charge, she moved a joy stick which moved the crossheirs on the screen, a loud beeping sound indicated that the weapon was locked-on, a loud buzzing sound signified that the weapon was fully charged and ready to be fired. The monkey pressed the bright red trigger, a beam was fired directly at the 'Skycutter'. The cruise ship didn't exploded instead it lost all power and plummeted towards the ground of the planet Kail. Half the ship snapped off as it hit a Cliff face, the two halves of the ship landed close to each other at the bottom of the cliff face.

***

*Five hours later*

Fox slowly opened his eyes, the sound of various sounds were all dull and unable to be recognised, his vision was blurred and was unable to see, he clearly smelt smoke, he tried to move but felt some resistance on his legs, he looked over at his legs, they were trapped underneath a dresser, he sat up slowly he attempted to lift the dresser off, he yelped in pain as his wrist stung painfully as he put pressure on it, he realised it must be wither broken or dislocated, what one he was suffering from he was unsure of. He used his left hand to push off the fairly empty dresser, he used the nearby bed leg as support to help him get up, he panted as he did, his muscles not liking being forced to move. Fox opened the dresser he had slid off his legs, he grabbed his shirt and shoes putting them on knowing he would need them. He soon came to his senses, he realised that the ship must have crashed, he instantly looked for Krystal, she wasn't by his side or anywhere in the room,

"Krystal!" he desperately called, there was no answer. He instantly grew worried for her,

"Is that you Dad?" a familiar voice yelled,

"Kari?" Kari rushed into the room and hugged her father, tears were still visible on her fur,

"Where's your brother?" Fox asked desperately,

"I don't know... Uncle Todd and Lola are looking for him." she told him, "Where's Mum?" Fox was silent, "Dad?"

"I... I don't know." Fox told her, Kari's heart skipped a beat, now fearing for her mother and brother.

***

Reece opened his eyes, his body was half covered in snow, unable to feel anything Reece looked over at his arms, his left was fine, he rolled his head to the right, he saw his forarm was broken, the bone was clearly disfigured, Reece cried in fright and horror, he knew it would only be a matter of time before his body regained feeling and he would feel that injury soon. He noticed everything past a close distance was blurred, he knew he was concussed... badly. Reece used his left arm to push himself up, as soon as he put pressure on his left ankle it buckled causing him to crash into the snow, landing on his broken arm. He yelled in pain as he landed, he gritted his teeth, using his good foot and arm he dragged himself underneath a nearby cliff, poor source of shelter but it would have to do. Reece saw the wreckage of the 'Skycutter' in the distance, he didn't know exactly what happened but he guessed he fell out of the wreckage as it hit the cliffs, he guessed he fell down the cliff to the bottom, hitting the various rocks on the way down, he wasn't sure if that were true but it sounded logical to him. He looked over at the wreckage again, he felt a deep sense of loss,

"No one could have survived that." he whispered to himself, knowing all of those close to him were possibly killed, Reece broke down, he laid down in the snow and put his left hand to his face, hiding it from the world.

***

A/N: So now it begins, sorry for the month wait on this, lol. Okay we don't know what happened to Krystal, Marcus or Kadie. Maybe I might kill one of them off *evil laughter*. Well, whatever happens I hope to have the next chapter up sooner rather than later, lol :P

Drums of War:

Chapter 4:

Survival of the Fittest

***

Kari followed Fox along the outside of the Skycutter’s hull. Fox’s body seemed to be twice as heavy, his legs trying to keep his body upright. Kari walked behind her father, she shivered as she rubbed her arms, a tank top and long pants were no clothing to wear on a planet covered in snow, yet alone in the middle of a blizzard. Kari was beginning to wonder why they were not inside the Skycutter looking for Marcus, Krystal or any other survivors. She tapped her father on his shoulder,

“Yes Kari?” Fox asked,

“Why are we not inside looking for Krystal or Marcus?” she asked as they continued walking through the thick, heavy snow.

“Because Todd and Lola are already looking inside,” he began explaining, “we may as well search the outside and activate the distress beacon in the bridge so we can get some help down here.” Kari nodded, accepting her father’s plan. Kari noticed that the wreckage spread as far as the blizzard allowed her to see, the amount of destruction was overwhelming.

“Kari.” Fox called, Kari snapped out of her daze and focused her attention to her father, he was already climbing in a broken window lead to the Skycutter’s bridge, “you coming?” he asked,

“Yeah, sorry, I zoned out.” She apologised, she quickly but carefully followed her father through the broken window and into the bridge,

“Prepare yourself.” Fox warned, Kari lowered her head under the glass as she stepped over the window frame, the bridge was dimly lit by the sun’s rays (Or what the sun could push through the blizzard) she looked at the inside of the bridge and gasped in shock, the floor was covered in the blood of the deceased crew members, majority of them killed by the shards of glass. Fox gently grabbed her hand in an attempt to comfort her, Kari took a deep breath and sighed, this was a sight that no one should need to see. They begun to make their way to the main control panel at the front of the bridge, they could hear a loud wheezing, they immediately turned to face the source of the sound,

“Please... help me.” A male leopard wheezed as he dragged himself them, Fox rushed over to him. The leopard fell flat on his face, losing all strength. Fox’s eyes widened as he saw the leopard in the small beam of light being let inside by the very small amount of sunlight outside. The leopard had a large shard of glass impaled through his chest, it was slowly killing him, if Fox tampered with it he would bleed to death, Fox knew this, he sighed all he could do is be by his side as he slowly died. The leopard heard Fox’s disappointed sigh, he started to sob softly,

“I knew... it was hopeless...” he wheezed, “I may not... be able to... survive this injury... but at least... I can help you and... any others. The black box has... the distress beacon... inside it. It is under... the captain’s desk... behind us. I activate it... but the report of... what happened is still processing... it can be detached... take it with you... it will... take you to the... people responsible.” Fox looked over at the inbuilt chair where the captain sat; he saw the black box underneath the arm rest,

“Thank you.” Fox told him,

“At least... I die knowing... I help the... legendary Fox McCloud... and helped save... others.” A smile slowly appeared on the leopard’s maw as he fell limp and fell to the floor. Fox checked his pulse, he was dead. Fox sighed, he used his two fingers to gently close the leopard’s eyes. Fox remained still for a moment, letting the shock set in before continuing. Fox stood up, groaning as the strain on his legs made it hurt to move, he looked over at Kari,

“Let’s grab the black box and find out what the hell has happened here.”

***

Todd and Lola dropped the piece of wreckage they had held up together as they checked for any survivors that may be trapped underneath. Todd was suffering from neck spasms and a swollen ankle, he wasn’t sure if anything like a snap or a break had been done to it, he could walk on it so nothing too bad must have happened. Lola suffered major bruising to her ribs and left leg, pretty mild injuries compared to others. Todd begun to think that they were not looking hard enough. Todd and Lola exited that room and returned to the hall, they had to be careful as they navigated the hall, not only was it on an angle making it a sloped surface they also had to avoid the shards of glass from the paintings, lights and other objects, although most of it had slid down the slope. Todd opened the door on the last living room of the hall, he helped Lola into the room, he tried to make his way into the room,

“Wait hon’.” Lola warned, she took Todd’s hand and guided him into the back of the room. Lola pointed at a puddle of water, it had a cord that fell from the ceiling into the puddle, making it electrified, that was not all, Todd swore in shock and disbelief, they saw a young female feline laying face down in the water, not only that her hand was extended towards a young kitten, it looked two months old, that was at the other end of the puddle, the mother died trying to save her child. Lola closed her eyes, it was too painful to look, two young lives ended way before they should have. Todd took her hand and carefully lead her back into the hallway. Lola opened the door at the very end of the hallway, it lead into the medical bay, there was one on every floor. She opened the door and entered the medical bay, Todd followed her inside. The medical bay was a relatively clean since everything was locked in place and metal cabinets.

“Hey!” yelled a voice, Todd and Lola turned around to the source of the voice, an old ram was in the corner of the room with a blaster pointed straight at them, Todd and Lola lifted up their hands up. The old ram lowered his rifle,

“Sorry, I thought you were scavengers.” He apologised, he was wearing the official doctor’s badge for the Skycutter. The doctor walked over to Todd and Lola, he leant on one knee and looked at Todd’s swollen ankle,

“You had quite a knock to your ankle.” He stated, he walked over to a cabinet, he swiped his card in the reader, “Not surprised with the impact of the crash we just suffered.” He stated as he pulled out a syringe, “Lucky they installed generators in the medical facilities or these would be locked in there forever.” He stated as he returned to Todd and leant down to his lower leg, “Lift your trouser leg please.” He requested, Todd lifted up his trouser leg a little, the doctor jabbed the syringe into his leg and injected the clear liquid into his blood stream, “It should take a couple of minutes to start working, but hey, that is the miracle of stimpack healing, heals small and slow.”

“Thank you.” Todd thanked him,

“Could we please take a pack of stimpacks so we can help any survivors we may find?” Lola asked, “Please.” She added,

“Sure, here you go.” He replied as he handed over the remaining stimpacks in the packet, he walked over to the cabinet and grabbed another packet and handed it to them. “Remember, this will only work for minor to medium ranked injuries, it won’t be able to heal broken bones, fractures, whatever.” Todd nodded,

“I’ll keep that in mind.” He replied, he and Lola exited the medical bay.

***

Fox and Kari walked along the outside of the Skycutter’s hull back to where they were back originally,

“What percentage is the rendering at?” Fox asked Kari, Kari looked at the black box’s digital display,

“Eighty percent Dad.” She replied, Fox nodded as they reached where they started. Todd and Lola were waiting for them. Todd passed a stimpack to Fox,

“Use it on your legs.” He told Fox, Fox was a little confused, he lifted up his trouser leg and injected the stimpack’s clear liquid into his blood stream.

“You find Krystal or Marcus?” Fox asked,

“No, sorry Fox.” Lola told him, Fox sighed, he desperately wanted them by his side or in his arms, not knowing where they were or what condition they are in was killing him inside. Kari looked around the landscape, still observing the landscape and the spread destruction, she noticed something odd underneath a large piece of metal,

“Hey guys, what’s that?” she asked as she pointed to the piece of metal, they all looked at where she was pointing,

“God...” Fox mumbled, as he started sprinting in that direction, Todd’s eyes widened,

“Wow that stimpack worked quickly.” He stated as his ankle hadn’t returned to normal. Fox slowed down as he reached the piece of metal, trapped under the metal was Marcus, just as Fox had thought.

“Marcus!” Fox called, he didn’t respond, Fox checked his pulse hoping his son was still alive.

***

Reece was sitting against the piece of metal that stuck out from the ground, his arm and leg hurt like nothing he had ever felt before, but that was nothing compared to the pain he felt due to the loss of all that he was close to. He looked up at the sky and bared his teeth, he was angry with the world, why did it always make his life miserable, he finally got his life on track and it takes everything from him putting back where he was all those years ago. He yelled at the top of his lungs not only to vent pain but frustration and loss. Reece heard something snap a bush,

“Who’s there?” he yelled, he grabbed the nearby pole he grabbed to help him walk earlier, he prepared himself to use it as a weapon to defend himself. He looked around desperately,

“Show yourself!” he demanded, a large rat like creature leapt out from the bottom of the small hill, it hissed and bared its teeth and claws, Reece swung his pole and hit the creature, five more followed the first one over the hill, Reece took a swing at the first group, the other two ran to his weak arm, they grabbed his arm and dragged him, Reece yelled in pain, he dropped the pole and grasped his arm trying to free it from the hold of the creatures, one of the creatures picked up the pole, Reece saw it pick up the pole, but by the time he did notice he only saw the metal pole crack the side of his head before everything went black.

***

A/N: Well, all I can say is... finally. It is about time I posted another chapter. Well will Marcus be alive? And what about Kadie and Krystal? Well I might have the next one done faster seeing as I have time to kill since I am in hospital recovering from reconstructive surgery on my Achilles Tendon, maybe I might start RP’ing again or just write fan-fics (god knows what I’ll do in this boredom ;)).

The Drums of War:

Chapter 5:

Eye of the Storm

***

Krystal brushed the snow off of her fur and clothing, Krystal had only just awoken from her unconscious state. Krystal managed to avoid a lot of injuries, she didn’t know how but she was grateful she had, she knew that she had to find survivors and help them. Krystal limped through the snow, following the outside of the Skycutter’s hull. Her leg had a shard of glass stuck inside, she wanted to take out the glass but she knew she had nothing to stop the bleeding if she did, so she had to walk with it inside of her. Krystal was overcome with shock with the whole situation, it impaired her telepathic abilities, she needed to calm herself to re-gain them. Krystal noticed a small opening in the Skycutter’s hull, Krystal squinted, trying to make her eyes focus on the small details of the hole, trying to determine if it lead inside or just lead into the walls. Krystal walked up to the hole with a limp. She poked her head inside the hole; her eyes took a second to adjust to the room’s dark lighting, it was brighter outside. Krystal’s eyes adjusted and she took a look around the room, she saw that the hole lead into a hallway of living rooms, a key feature that caught Krystal’s attention was the water feature that was smashed in pieces on the floor, she recognised that, this was the floor where Reece and Kadie were staying, maybe they were still there, Krystal decided it was worth a look, being in a small group was better than being alone, especially in a time like this. Krystal climbed through the hole, her leg hurt as she did; she clenched her teeth and groaned as the glass pushed against her flesh. She dragged herself into the hallway; she grasped the handrail and used it to aid her to get up from the floor. Krystal noticed that most of the doors were closed, a small few were open. She walked over to Reece and Kadie’s room, the door was shut, Krystal knocked on the door hoping to get a response,

“Reece? Kadie?” she called, there was no answer. Krystal gently turned the doorknob, the door swung open on its own as the ship was on an angle, Krystal pressed the button to activate the lights, nothing happened, she thought she may as well tried to. Krystal slowly walked around the room,

“Reece? Kadie?” she asked again, Krystal took a quick look around the room, it was trashed, everything was all over the place, the dresser, the bed, the clothing, everything. Krystal sighed in disappointment, she had really hoped that at least one of the two would have been there. Krystal turned around and walked to the door. Krystal stopped in the doorway, the sound of struggled breathing filled the room, Krystal turned around she looked around the room, she was unsure of what was making the sound, normally she would read the brain patterns to tell if it was friend or foe. Krystal picked up a lamp, prepared to defend herself. She followed the sound of the breathing. She stood in front of a chest of drawers, the source of the sound was underneath, Krystal grasped the lamp firmly in her hands, ready to attack if the source was hostile. Krystal slowly  leant down and looked underneath the drawers. Krystal gasped and put her hands underneath the drawers, she struggled to lift the drawers, she lifted them a little and slowly rotated it ,she placed it on the ground at the feet of the body trapped under the drawers. Krystal ran to the front of the body,

“Kadie!” Krystal called, she didn’t respond, Krystal grew worried, she checked her pulse, it pulsed very slowly, Krystal assumed that the weight of the drawers restricted her breathing, her airway should be cleared now, her pulse  should return to normal soon. Krystal inspected her body for injuries; she had a gash on the back of her head, she had a few busted ribs,  they weren’t too bad surprisingly. Krystal tried to wake her up; Kadie remained still on the ground. Krystal desperately thought of what she could do. Krystal remembered the medical facility at the end of each floor. Krystal quickly limped out of the room. She limped down the hall to the medical bay. She pressed the button to open the door, it didn’t open because there was no power. Krystal sighed in frustration, she bent over and placed her fingers underneath the small  gap between the door and the ground, Krystal groaned as she struggled to lift the heavy door, it didn’t help that the gears that opened the door were struggling to move. Sweat ran down Krystal’s brow, her back was burning. Krystal groaned loudly as she moved the door to the roof. Krystal quickly entered the room, not knowing how long the door would stay up for. Krystal noticed that the cabinets were open slightly, not very responsible of the doctor. Krystal walked up to the cabinets, she opened them, most of the medicine bottles were broken, Krystal opened the next cabinet, she looked around the inside of the cabinet, empty packets filled the inside, he wasn’t too hygienic either. Krystal spotted one packet of syringes at the very back; Krystal grabbed them and pulled them out. She immediately recognised the stimpacks inside. Krystal smiled, this was just what she needed to help Kadie. Krystal rushed back to Kadie. Krystal jabbed the syringe into Kadie’s neck, she slowly inserted the liquid into kadie’s blood stream. Krystal disposed of the used stimpack, she grabbed another stimpack, she inserted the syringe into her leg and injected the syringe into her leg. She pulled out the shard of glass from her leg, she cringed as she held the flesh together , she waited for the healing agents from the stimpack  to seal the wound together.

It was another five minutes before Kadie, regained conciseness. Kadie groaned, she put her palm to her face, she rubbed her eyes, she groaned again, she looked over at Krystal,

“Krystal?” she groaned, Krystal nodded,

“I’m here.” She confirmed, Krystal let go of her leg, knowing that the wound had sealed up, Krystal walked over to her,

“Where’s Reece?” Kadie asked, panting for breath,

“I don’t know, you are the first one I have found.” Krystal replied, Kadie remained silent, she wasn’t sure what to say,

“We have to find the others.” Kadie told Krystal. Krystal nodded,

“Take it easy getting up, you look like you have a couple have broken ribs.” Krystal told her, Kadie nodded, she stood to her feet, Kadie looked at her gauntlet, she activated the display, she started scanning for any radio signals hoping to find someone. Krystal beaconed for Kadie to follow her, Kadie nodded in conformation, she followed Krystal out into the cold wilderness.

***

Reece slowly opened his eyes, once again he had been knocked unconscious, Reece was a little over all the knocks to his head. As his eyes adjusted to the surroundings Reece re-adjusted his leg very slowly to make it less painful, he stretched out his leg, a jolt of pain ran up his leg as his foot hit something. His eyes adjusted to the surroundings, he noticed he was inside a cage made of wood, it held him inside with some rather strong rope, Reece looked behind him, the cliff was right at his back, he noticed a cave entrance just to the right of him, he heard the random chatter of his captors, he didn’t know what they were saying or what they had planned for him. Reece didn’t like the surroundings; he was cold, shaking and hungry. At least at the crash site there was plenty of fire to keep him warm. Reece knew that this may be his last time he could make an entry into his log, if it still worked. Reece gritted his teeth in pain as he grabbed his arm and lifted it onto his lap, the screen was still working,, Reece activated the screen by pressing the button on his gauntlet. Reece opened a new log entry and started typing. Reece had some hope in his body, that if he sent this message any members of a rescue party could find him. Reece sighed as he finished typing the sentence, Reece paused, he heard the sound of snow crunching under something’s feet, Reece looked up, he saw a figure emerging from the blizzard, he saw that the figure wasn’t one of the creatures that attacked him, he looked at the figure as it walked towards him, the figure was a large Venomian lizard, he wore a black suit and held a blaster in his right hand,

“Reece Kilza?” he asked as he continued to walk towards Reece,

“Yes that is me; please help me out of here.” Reece plead, the lizard walked right up to the cage, he leant down on one knee, he slowly put the blaster through the hole of the cage, placing the barrel on his forehead,

“Actually you being in here makes it easier for me,” he told Reece, “you see I am here to kill you and any other survivors that may pose a threat to our operation, such as Fox, Krystal, Kari and Marcus McCloud, and yourself, we know of the others such as Todd and Lola and they will be dealt with as well.” Reece was stunned, he didn’t know what to say, how to react or what to do in general, the lizard stood back up, “Do me a favour, die slowly and painfully.”

“Only if you burn in the deepest pits of hell.” Reece replied, the lizard chuckled as he walked off back into the blizzard. Reece swore in frustration, he wanted to help his friends but knew he could do nothing in this condition. He deleted everything in his new log entry, he begun typing:

Log Entry 472: Final Entry

Reece Kilza

Mercenary Squadron: Star Fox

Location Unknown  - 15:04:47

This is probably the last thing I will ever write... or the last task I will ever do to be honest. I sit in this cold, cramped, uncomfy cage awaiting these... things... to bury me neck deep in snow in the middle of the blizzard. Death might be a good thing seeing how there is nothing for me in this world now since the others were killed. No one will know what happened to cause such a massacre... since that knowledge will die with me. Lylat will no longer be the war free galaxy we helped to create. Today they fight with lasers, missiles and battle cruisers... tomorrow they will fight with sticks and stones. My time is almost up, to anyone out there who is reading this and if it hasn't happened already... everything you know will end.

Krystal and Kadie continued to follow the Skycutter’s hull around. The blizzard only appeared to be getting worse, perhaps this was caused by the aftermath of the blast that shot down the Skycutter? Kadie grew worried for the others she knew. Krystal tried to keep calm, not being able to scan for minds made her task that much more difficult. Kadie looked down at her gauntlet again, checking for any new frequencies. A new frequency appeared on her scan, it was a log entry, Kadie opened it, she read over the text, she gasped,

“Krystal!” she called, Krystal turned around and faced her, “I know where Reece is, maybe the others are with him?”

***

Reece sneezed, the snow that was in his nose expelled through his mouth. He was buried neck deep in snow, his leg hurt like hell; his arm was already numb from the cold. The creatures had buried him in the snow and left him to die. Reece blew on the snow, trying to weaken the snow so he could free himself, he knew it was pointless, but he didn’t want to die like this. Reece heard something walking towards him, he could see what it was as it was behind him. It wasn’t a regular set of footsteps, Reece’s heart raced, he didn’t know what it was, he feared it was a creature coming to feast on him, he heard loud panting, Reece panicked a lot, he panted in panic, it grew closer and louder, panic took over Reece’s body, he fell unconscious.

Yes, with Reece being unstable as he is at the moment I would be too.
