"-Remember, we need to secure those energy sources at point Gamma. We probably won't be facing bogers today, but report any unusual sight immediately." Screamed Sargent through his frame Intercom, interrupted only by the noise of the drop-ship shaking.
"-What are those 'energy sources' anyway? Oil? Wind turbines?" Asked private Yokogawa, from inside her cockpit.
"-That's none of our business, we will secure a perimeter around the nav point and that's it" Replied Sargent.
Maria felt the heavy shaking as the ship finally dropped their forces. Her first official mission as a member of the Crimson Legion. A mix of excitement and anxiety flowed through her head.
Four frames were dropped on those dull beige plains, with nothing but a few old abandoned buildings on the horizon. Private Gibson dropped in a BM-05 Boxy Boy identical to Maria's. Sargent crawled on a four-legged SM-03 Reclusive Spider, sporting a big artillery cannon on it's right torso. Yokogawa run a chicken-like RM-04 Rahonavis, with vicious looking claws on it's feet.
"-Why couldn't the ship drop us closer to the nav point?"
"-Quit those hutching questions, Yoko! Remember, you go scout first, I'll stay behind, Boxy Boy units steadily on the middle, lets go!" Replied Sargent starting to look more nervous than he should.
Two hours passed by as they got closer to the nav point. Yoko had already spotted the building they were supposed to protect. Maria saw what seemed to be a wind turbine, but something wasn't right about it, sickly green crystals glowed ominously around it's base.
"-What the hutch is that?" Maria thought to herself.
"-They're here! They're here, hutch'dammit!" Yoko screamed as green plasma flew through the skies in her direction. She could avoid the fire, but just barely.
"-Who's here?" Thought Maria. As she saw a vision she would never forget.
Three frames approached the installations from behind. They seemed to be Chubs, but instead of the usual cockpit armor plating, their chest sported a complicated pattern, with an artifact on the upper left glowing the same sickly green color of the crystals she saw earlier.
"-Neon Knights!" Screamed Sargent through the intercom.To be continued
