Chapter 4:
With good reason.

***

Lieutenant General Hue stood behind the front doors of the Cornerian military base, out side were reporters from every media source in the Lylat System, they were dying to know just what happened at Aquas and why they had been defeated. Jessica stood at Lieutenant General Hue’s side; she had to serve him since he was now in charge of Corneria’s military. Lieutenant General Hue sighed, he pushed open the doors and marched towards the microphone, loud questions were being asked by every member of the press in attendance, making it almost impossible to make out any of the words. Jessica walked in front of the microphone,
“Lieutenant General Hue will first make an official statement on behalf on the Cornerian military on the assault on Aquas mission, he will then take questions you may have, under code 1834 of the Cornerian Military Guidelines some answers may be classified and unable to be answered.” Jessica announced, she then stepped behind Lieutenant General Hue and stood in the military official stance, Lieutenant General Hue stood up at the microphone,
“Ladies and gentlemen of the press, it is my sad duty to inform you of the tragedy that took place on Aquas at 1923 hours yesterday.” He started; he straightened some papers on the stand in front of him, “After receiving a distress call from Aquas requesting assistance from an attack by a new hive cluster of Aparoids…” Loud gsaps were heard by members of the media, camera flashes and loud questions were being barked at Lieutenant General Hue, “Be seated and remain quiet, I will answer your questions after I finish my statement.” Lieutenant General Hue told the press angrily, once the press had settled down Lieutenant General Hue resumed talking, “As I was saying, The Aparoids were attacking Aquas, so we responded to their distress call, General Grey sent forces to hold off the Aparoids, he was apart of this group. He had contracted the mercenary squadron ‘Star Strike’ to assist by dropping cluster bombs on the marching Aparoids, they failed to do their duty, they accepted bribes made to them by intergalactic gang “The Fallout” to neglect their duties.” Jessica’s eyes widened, she knew that was not what happened, she knew that Marcus was sent to activate the beacon within Aquas’s Dover Cliff, she worried that Lieutenant General Hue may be going mad with power, “A signal was received from General Grey telling the troops that we were overwhelmed by numbers and impossible to win, so Bill sacrificed himself to save us and the rest of the troops. Aquas is under Aparoid control, but we will destroy the head Aparoid and remove it’s control over any troops and areas it may control!” he added, he slammed his fist onto the stand for a dramatic affect, “This is a notice to any bounty hunters and or mercenaries out there looking for work, I am offering five million credits as a reward to those that can capture these members of Star Strike, dead or alive, Marcus McCloud, Todd McCLoud, Lola Foxglove, Kadie Hornbrew and Reece Kilza. If they have any companions or followers with them they are to be captured alive for questioning and that will be added to your reward. They will be punished for their act of treason against us.” He took a few deep breaths, his angry speech left him almost breathless. Jessica walked up to the microphone, she was horrified with what Lieutenant General Hue had just revealed, she knew Marcus and the others were innocent, but if she called him out without evidence, she feared she would be charged with treason,
“Uh, Lieutenant General Hue will now answer some of your uh questions.” Jessica told the media, fear could be heard in her voice. A female feline stood up,
“Internal sources suggest that you ignored a direct order given to you by General Grey which resulted in his death, care to comment?” she asked,
“I followed General Grey’s orders word for word.” Lieutenant General Hue answered; he was being tight lipped on the question, unsatisfied with the answer, the feline sat down on her seat, grumbling under her breath, a vulpine stood up,
“Sir, what evidence do you have to back up your claim that the son of the infamous Fox McCloud has actually accepted these bribes, many here today believe your story to be far fetched and want more answers.” He told the General,
“Speak for yourself!” barked a bulldog reporter, “Star Fire has committed treason, they deserve to die!”
“You are right sir, the lives that we lost that day, death would be too easy.” Lieutenant General Hue added, he looked over his shoulder at Jessica, she knew that the conference was over, she walked up to the microphone,
“Thank you for attending, this conference is over, for any other questions you may have please refer them to our public relations office.” She told the reporters, her hand was shaking slightly, she knew that she had to follow Lieutenant General Hue’s orders, but she didn’t want to, damned if she did, damned if she doesn’t.

Marcus groaned loudly, his head hurt like hell, he rubbed his forehead,
“I didn’t think there would be pain in heaven.” He grumbled, he inspected where he was, he noticed he was in his quarters aboard the Great Fox, he felt some cotton wrapped around his head, he pulled the fabric down to see what it was, it was a bandage wrapped around his head, “Ugh, what happened?” he grumbled,
“Ah, you’re finally awake.” A familiar female voice spoke, Marcus looked over at his doorway, his mother Krystal stood in the doorway,
“Mom?” he asked, confused,
“Ssh.” She told him, putting her finger to her lips, “You have a bad head ache, talking will only make you hurt more.” She added, she walked over to his bed and sat on the end of it.
“We were asked to help defend against the Aparoids as well,” she started explaining,
“We?” Marcus asked,
“Your Father and I. Anyway we were asked to help defend against the Aparoids; we fought on the front line with Bill. When he hadn’t received the signal he told us that he had sent you and the others to activate it, he then sent us to Dover Cliff to check on you. By the time we had gotten there, you had just activated the lights and the beacon, we saw you get knocked out by a big massive Aparoid, you’re father and I killed it. Fox then programmed our Arwings to land on top of Dover Cliff, we then transported you here, we were going to return to battle but the others had fled and the Aparoids had… had… um…”
“Had what?” Marcus asked,
“The Aparoids, they killed Bill and now control Aquas…” Krystal whimpered, knowing she had just lost a close family friend, Marcus was shocked, they activated the beacon, the Aparoids were too few in numbers to possibly win the battle, why did Lieutenant General Hue pull out the troops, it made no sense to Marcus.
“We need to go to Corneria and tell everyone what happened.” Marcus cried,
“Bad idea.” Fox replied as he entered, Fox now had many grey furs sticking out of his muzzle from his increasing age, “Lieutenant General Hue has blamed us for Bill’s death and we are now wanted for treason, there is five mill’ on our heads.” He added, Marcus was stunned, why would Lieutenant General Hue betray them like that? Why?
“How are the others?” Marcus asked,
“They are fine, they are actually eating some food in the kitchen, except for Reece.” Krystal noted,
“What’s wrong with Reece?” Marcus asked, worried,
“Well, since he had parts of an Aparoid splattered all over his clothing I presume he has either inhaled or swallowed a bit of the Aparoid’s body or blood on accident, he is awake, but he is throwing up and feeling extremely light headed.” Krystal explained,
“Is there anything on here that can help him?” Marcus asked, Krystal shook her head,
“A cure for this was developed but it is stored on Corneria, but I happen to know the son of one of the men who invented it, Slippy.” Fox noted,
“So we need to set course to Katina then.” Marcus noted, Fox smiled,
“I’m way ahead of you.” Fox noted, “We are already in the same sector as Katina, it will be about half an hour before we reach the surface of Katina, so go get ready.” He added, Marcus nodded, hopping out of his large bed, preparing to go onto the surface of Katina and meet up with Slippy and Amanda Toad.

Chapter 3:
Battle for Aquas

***

Marcus, Todd, Lola, Kadie and Reece all stood in the elevator, they waited for it to reach the level of the hanger. Reece yawned,
“Fighting on half a night’s sleep… great… while I’m at it why don’t I just hit myself in the head with a mallet?” Reece grumbled sarcastically,
“I hear you bud’.” Todd replied,
“Guys, think positive, there is nothing that can possibly stand against us.” Marcus told the older vulpines,
“Guess you’re right.” Reece added, “I still want some coffee though, this is ridiculous.” The elevator reached the ground floor, the back doors of the elevator opened, revealing the large and almost empty hanger, most of the ships had been sent off to Aquas already. Bill walked up to them, followed by the Lieutenant General,
“Marcus buddy,” Bill greeted, “I haven’t seen you in person for ages, as much as I would like to chat we do kind of have an invasion on our hands.” He added, Marcus nodded in response,
“So this is the mercenary squadron you oh so rave about?” the Lieutenant General asked,
“Yes they are, you should be glad that they are here to help us, Hue.” Bill told his inferior.
“I don’t believe you should put all your faith into these five pilots, remember, all they want is the money of Corneria.” Hue advised Bill,
“Yeah, yeah whatever, I have complete trust in Marcus and his crew.” Bill snapped, “Anyway as I was saying. The planet of Aquas is being attacked by another hive of Aparoids, we thought that after you guys killed the queen that they were done for, seems we were ignorant.” Bill explained,
“So it is simple then, we go blow up these Aparoids, save Aquas, go home and sleep. Correct?” Reece asked, he was sitting on the floor, his eyes closed, realizing where he was, Kadie delivered a sharp but soft kick to Reece’s thigh,
“Ouch.” Reece groaned as he opened his eyes and looked up at her, rubbing his thigh, Kadie quickly tilted her head up and returned it to its original position, signaling for Reece to get up on his feet, Reece understood, he got up onto his feet.
“That’s right Reece.” Bill replied to Reece as he stood up, “But we have had two waves already, I don’t know if this wave is the last.” Bill added,
“Sir, you put too much trust and faith into these five, it will get you killed.” The Lieutenant General told Bill,
“Dude, chill.” Bill told Lieutenant General Hue, he turned his head to face Marcus, “Now what I need you guys to do is to activate a beacon on Dover Cliffs, the entrance to the base is at the base of Dover Cliff, unfortunately you will have to climb stairs as the station is unpowered. At the top floor is the power generator which will power the facility and activate the beacon.” Bill explained, he looked at Lieutenant General Hue, “And when that beacon is emitted, you will order the men to attack, helping group 1 assault the Aparoids.”
“Understood sir.” Lieutenant General Hue replied, Bill turned to face the mercenary group,
“The Great Fox is ready to be warped, we’ve done all necessary stuff to make sure it is ready.” Bill noted, “So off you go, and good luck guys.” Marcus signaled for his team to follow him to the Great Fox. Reece quickly followed, hoping there was still that strong coffee that he made two days ago.

***

The Great Fox orbited in Aquas’s atmosphere. Reece, Kadie, Marcus, Lola and Todd all sat in their respective aircrafts in the hanger of the Great Fox.
“Come on let’s go!” Reece demanded impatiently, he had drunk four cups of strong coffee, he had too much energy and was literally bouncing in his seat.
“Just a minute old man, we need to finalize these settings.” Marcus replied, Todd had drunk a few cans of highly caffeinated soda but unlike Reece the caffeine only woke him up without any side effects.
“The coms are open, we can depart.” Kadie told Marcus,
“Yeah, I am getting bored just sitting here hun’.” Lola added,
“Alright,” Marcus announced, “Let’s go, I have sent the co-ordinates to your ships.”
“Lead the way Cap’n.” Reece told Marcus, Marcus activated his Arwing’s engine, he disengaged the brakes and landing gear, he pulled on the thruster and flew out of the hanger, the others followed him.

The team flew towards the co-ordinates that Marcus gave them, the small islands that poked out from the vast, almost endless ocean, were full of flames, rubble and glowing objects, Todd, Lola, Kadie and Marcus were all in shock by the sheer destruction that the Aparoids were causing, Reece tried to avoid looking at it, it brought back bad memories of his experiences with the Aparoids.

The group landed their ships at the base of the 300 foot high Dover Cliffs; a mild fog filled the area, the group exited their Arwings with their favored weapons, Todd held his Hyper Laser Collapsible Assault Rifle, Lola held her Hyper Laser Pistol, Reece held his pump action shotgun, Kadie held her SMG and Marcus held his burst fire plasma rifle. The group walked up to the hidden door, it was a gray stone wall with a large scratch in it. Marcus placed his fingers in the scratch and found the switch Bill had told him of. HE pulled the switch, a large amount of steam was puffed out from underneath the door, Marcus pulled his fingers out as the door slowly slid open, Reece jumped back in fright, a trail of blood lay on the floor leading up some stairs, Marcus smirked and looked at Reece,
“Squeamish?” Marcus asked in a mocking tone,
“No, I just didn’t think there would be fresh blood in here.” Reece snapped back, Marcus chuckled, Marcus flicked a switch on his rifle, activating the LED flashlight beneath it. The group entered the generator base, as they did the door slid shut behind them, leaving them trapped inside the base in complete darkness. Reece flicked a switch on his shotgun also activating a LED flashlight. He and Marcus supplied the only light in the base.

Marcus moved his flashlight around, looking for a door,
“Okay, we need to get to the top of this place so we can activate the generator which will emit the beacon.”” Marcus noted,
“I suggest we look for some stairs in an office, they will surely lead us to where we need to go.” Todd suggested,
“Yes, but what offices? This is a generator after all.” Lola added,
“How about a fire escape?” Kadie suggested, she moved Reece’s shotgun light to a door, it was red and had a picture of a stick figure anthromorphic animal running down a set of stairs with fire coming out a door. Lola walked up to the door, she felt for any locks or safety engages, there were none. She swung open the door, a loud roar was heard, Lola was pinned down to the ground by a creature, Todd quickly ran to her and delivered a hard kick to the creature that was attempting to kill his wife, the creature flew over to Reece after it was kicked, Reece placed the barrel of his shotgun on the creature’s head, he pulled the trigger and fired a round into its brain. The creature blew into pieces, most of it landing on Reece.
“Ugh!” Reece groaned in disgust, “I just got these trousers last week!” he complained, Marcus inspected the remains of the creature,
“Aparoids!” Marcus yelled, “How the hell did they get in here?” Marcus wondered,
“Who cares, we have a problem on our hands.” Reece told Marcus,
“Yeah, we know this staircase leads to the generator but it is crawling with Aparoids.” Todd added,
“So Reece and yourself will need to spot those disgusting things and kill them before they eat me.” Lola added,
“What about us?” Kadie asked,
“You are expendable.” Lola joked,
“Right well I’ll try to be a spotter and you guys take them out since I won’t be able to reach them.” Reece stated, the group agreed with the plan, they started moving into the fire escape.

Reece nervously walked up the stairs first, he quickly scanned the area all the time, he didn’t like the idea of being stalked by mutant bugs who wanted to eat his brains for breakfast. The others weren’t as nervous as Reece, they could tell Reece was on edge, he was shaking and not from the coffee he had earlier. Reece spotted something moving, he yelped and fired his shotgun, a piece of metal fell from above, it hit the railing of the stairs as it continued to fall to the bottom,
“Reece, take a deep breath, we need you to focus.” Kadie told him, rubbing his neck, knowing it calmed him down. Reece sighed and nodded, he continued up the stairs.

The group managed to reach the generator floor with almost no difficulties, Reece was very relived, he believed that the Aparoid that attacked Lola must have been the only one. The others didn’t think like Reece, they were cautious, they knew there were more, but where was the one thing they didn’t know. The group continued walking up to the generator switch, they heard a very loud, deafening roar, Reece jumped back in fright, almost knocking Kadie and Lola off their feet. A large, humanoid Aparoid stood in front of them, it was 12 feet tall with blade for limbs. Reece swore, he wasn’t too happy to see another Aparoid, the group opened fire on the Aparoid, the bullets landed in its natural armor but failed to do any further damage, Reece swore loudly, the Aparoid took a swing at Reece, he leant back, far enough to avoid being killed but not far enough to avoid being cut, the blade arm left a large slit across Reece’s torso. Lola noticed there was a soft, pink, fleshy area between its joints, Lola thought for a second, she had a plan. Lola snuck behind the Aparoid. Reece growled loudly at the Aparoid, he felt some blood coming to his flesh. The Aparoid saw Reece as a threat, it took another swing at him. As it raised it’s blade arm, Lola fired several rounds into the flesh of the Aparoid’s shoulder joint, the Aparoid screeched in pain, it seemed to lose control of its arm as it went limp. Lola quickly fired some more rounds into the back of the Aparoid’s knee, it buckled and fell on its front, Todd quickly but gently threw his combat knife to Lola, Lola caught the knife on the handle, she jumped on the back of the Aparoid, there was some flesh behind its neck, Lola purposely fell down, driving the knife into the back of the Aparoid’s neck, the Aparoid screamed and yelped in pain, desperately trying to use its free arm to attack Lola, Lola twisted the knife and moved it around the Aparoids neck, making sure she killed it. The Aparoid let out one last groan before it died. Lola panted; she felt such an adrenaline rush. Reece was panting in fear, afraid of any others that may appear.

The generator lever was in sight, Todd ran over to it. He put his hands on the lever and pulled with all his might, the lever was stubborn and almost refused to move. Marcus helped Todd pull, the lever switched to the on position, Todd and Marcus fell to the floor as it went down due to the pressure they put on the lever. The others noticed a loud humming, the computers turned on, pumps started working. The generator was back online, the signal was now being emitted.

***

Bill attended some of his troops in the first fleet, they were injured, hurt and almost combat ineffective,
“Hurry up with that beacon guys.” Bill muttered under his breath, he noticed another wave of Aparoids appearing out from the water about 100 feet away. A beeping was heard on Bill’s visor,
“The signal, there it is!” Bill yelled happily, “Don’t worry boys, we will get through this.”

Lieutenant General Hue stood on a nearby Cliff, hundreds of soldiers and pilots stood ready behind him, he saw the hundreds of Aparoids starting to emerge from the waters. He heard a beeping from his gauntlet, he saw the signal was activated,
“Retreat boys.” Lieutenant General Hue ordered,
“Sorry sir?” a solider asked,
“Retreat, Bill sent out the signal, he is combat in effective and hopelessly outnumbered. We have no chance of winning here.” The soldiers and pilots, not knowing any better, followed Lieutenant General Hue’s command and retreated back to their drop ships to be taken back to their mother ship.

Bill looked up at the now empty cliff, he was speechless, he didn’t know what was going on. He turned around, the Aparoids were only twenty feet away. He and his troops fired upon them, many Aparoids fell to their blasts. Eventually Aparoids broke through, they attacked all that remained on the island, no one appears to have survived.

***

Reece, Kadie, Todd, Lola and Marcus all stood in the generator room, they had no knowledge of Lieutenant General Hue’s betrayal.
“Let’s activate these lights.” Reece suggested, he walked over to a computer and starting flicking through, the others came up to him and started watched the screen. A loud roar was heard, the group turned around, only to see a dark, solid object strike them in the face, knocking them out cold.

A/N: The main plot just begun. Betrayal, a classic in stories.

Chapter 2:
Threats

***

Sector E, an empty sector, nothing but a few stars filled the empty sector, four years ago, Corneria and Venom scientists started a joint operation, they got permission from the Governments of both Venom and Corneria to set up a scientific space station in Sector A so they could monitor the reports of fungi growing in small chunks of rock floating in the sector. Their last report, or any form of communication, was over a year ago. The United Science Council worried of a bandit or mercenary attack, they hired little known mercenaries ‘The Creed’ to investigate why the base has been silent for over a year since both Corneria and Venom have been dealing with other threats and disasters.

“Our target is in sight boys!” Stated the leader of The Creed, he was a male husky, around 40 years of age, he always kept a cigarette in his mouth, lit or not, The Creed flew their light aircrafts towards the Scientific Base.
“Yeah Bob, looks like nothin’ special is going on here.” Snorted one of the husky’s mercenaries, the mercenary was a male pig, obese and missing some teeth which were replaced gold teeth.
“Easy money, don’t you think?” replied a male feline pilot, he licked his lips after he mentioned the money,
“Heh, right you are Sam.” Bob replied as he lit his cigarette with his lighter. They continued gliding towards the scientific base,
“Hey, are those machines flying out of the base?” The pig mercenary asked, Bob squinted off into the distance,
“Hell, I think your right.” Bob stated, “Hey what the hell!” He growled, “What the hell is that fleshy looking looking crap that’s on those machines?”
“It’s glowing… that can’t be good!” Sam added. Bob activated his radio that he had linked directly to the control room of the science base,
“Is this your idea of some kind of joke!?” he growled, demanding an answer, there was no response, “Answer me!” he demanded,
“Give in, it will make it easier on you…” A voice told Sam,
“What? Was that some kind of sexual remark?” Sam growled,
“Give in, make it easy.”
“Uh… Bob we have a big problem.” The pig stated in a worried tone, Bob looked up, he saw that the machines were charging shots and were locking them onto the signals of The Creed’s ships, Bob swore,
“Quick get hell out of here!” he yelled, the trio turned their ships around and began to flee, but it was too late, the machines fired their charged beams, they hit the ships of The Creed, the ships blew up all together in an eruption of blue flames.

Marcus poured the milk onto his cereal, he spent the night at his parent’s home. He put the spoon into his bowl and ate some of the cereal. He heard the phone ring; as usual his mother was never too far away from the phone,
“Hello, Krystal speaking.” Krystal greeted as she picked up the phone, she listened to the person on the other side of the phone, Marcus paid no attention to his mother, he continued eating,
“Uh huh. Yes.” Krystal confirmed after the caller spoke, “Okay, I’ll tell him, bye.” Krystal hung up the phone,
“Yeah mom?” Marcus replied,
“That was Bill’s assistant Jessica, she requests that you and your team see her about a new assignment.”
“Okay thanks Mom. I’ll call the others as soon as I’ve finished my breakfast.” He told her, happily smiling at his mother. Marcus sighed,
“Not even a moment to rest.” He grumbled as he put some more food into his mouth.

***

Reece walked into the local chocolate store, just around the corner from the local market, the door chimes rung as the door opened, the parrot looked at Reece,
“Why good day Reece, what brings my favorite customer to my shop?” she asked,
“Just checking your stuff, might get some for when I go out next.” Reece answered,
“Well good news then, I just froze some chocolate, see how hard it is?” she asked, grabbing some frozen chocolate and started jabbing Reece in the ribs,
“Ouch.” Reece groaned as the jab sent a sharp pain through his body,
“Come on Reece, time to get up.” She said in a completely different voice,
“Huh?” Reece questioned,
“Come on, up!” the parrot told him, jabbing him once more.

Reece’s eyes darted open, he was still under a sheet on the couch of his home, he went to sleep there so he wouldn’t wake Kadie up after returning home late after staying out until 3 am with Todd spending time around Corneria. Reece lazily looked at the clock, it was 9.04am, Reece groaned,
“What is so important that I am being woken up so early?” Reece mumbled into his pillow, closing his eyes again, almost falling asleep straight away. Kadie sighed, she lifted Reece up from the bed, and pointed his muzzle towards the dining room, Reece sniffed, he could smell some food, his eyes quickly opened,
“Is that the reason, if so, it is justified.” Reece replied with a smirk, Kadie shook her head,
“No, that’s not the reason.” Kadie told him, “Marcus called, looks like we have a new assignment.” Reece grumbled under his breath,
“We just got back, and we get more work. Yay!” he told her sarcastically.
“Well, you might want to eat up and get changed, we need to leave soon.” Kadie told him, rustling his hair. Reece quickly darted out of the chair and made his way to the food on the table, not wanting his food to get cold.

***

Todd and Lola stood in the elevator of the Cornerian Defense Base, Todd was still half asleep after his night out. Lola had to keep him awake, sharing the same role of which Kadie was doing for Reece. Todd wrapped his arm Lola, leaning into her, he did this for both to keep himself on his feet and to give Lola some friendly contact. Todd was trying really hard not to fall asleep on his feet. The double doors of the elevator slid open, the office of Bill Grey’s assistant Jessica Kail.
“And two make five.” Reece stated as the couple entered the room, he was laying on one of the couches, his eyes closed. Kadie sat on the chair next to him, Marcus sat on one of the chairs in front of Jessica’s office desk.
“Now we can begin.” Jessica stated, getting straight to business, she dimmed the lights and loaded a holographic projector, several images popped out of it,
“Recently we sent a mercenary squadron known as ‘The Creed’ to question a scientific base which went silent over a year ago, they were killed by these.” A holographic photograph of the machines that attacked the Creed appeared, “I assume you know what we are dealing with.” Reece sat up on the chair,
“I never thought I would see those things again…” Reece stated in horror,
“What? Printers?” Marcus asked, not aware of what he was dealing with,
“No… god damn Aparoids.” Reece told them,
“Yes, that is what we are dealing with here.” Jessica stated, “From the little intelligence we have, we are able to see that the Aparoids are not subject to just one queen, there are many hives or broods, whatever your preference. They are not dead and are still a threat to all of us here in the Lylat system. What I need you guys to do is…” Jessica was interrupted by a loud overcome speaker,
“Jessica, send Star Strike to the hanger, Aquas is under attack, I’ll provide more details to them as they get down.” Bill told Jessica,
“Well, you heard him.” Jessica stated, the group, except for Marcus, ran out the door towards the elevator, Marcus was held back by his hand by Jessica, she looked into his eyes,
“Stay safe, my forbidden love.” She told Marcus,
“I will babe, don’t you worry.” Marcus told her, they kissed on the lips before Marcus left the office to catch up with the rest of his team.

Chapter 1:
Coming Home

***

The Great Fox traveled at a regular speed through the long and distant Lylat system, the crew aboard were relaxing after a successful mission, dealing with a bandit group attacking and looting caravans sent to bring goods to many planets around the Lylat System. Marcus sat in the command seat of the Great Fox’s bridge. Marcus tapped his finger impatiently on the arm rest of his chair, they had been traveling through the Lylat System for more than an hour and a half now, he didn’t know how long it would be before they got home, Marcus sighed impatiently as he stood up from the captain’s chair, he wiped his long white fringe from his eyes, he walked over to ROB, who was attending to the controls of the ship’s navigational controls.
“ROB, how long until we reach Corneria?” Marcus asked ROB,
“At current speed, we will reach our destination of the Planet Corneria in one hour, forty seven minutes and four seconds.” ROB told Marcus, Marcus groaned loudly, he was so bored, television can only provide so much entertainment when all that is shown is repeats. Marcus walked through the bridge’s doors, they slid open as Marcus got near. Marcus continued to walk down the halls of the Great Fox. Kadie walked out from the kitchen, holding a chocolate muffin in her hand she had packed for herself before departing on the trip, she took a bite of the muffin, munching on it as she walked up to Marcus. Kadie smiled at him as she walked past him, not going to talk with a mouth full. Marcus looked at the vixen,
“Hey Kadie.” Marcus called, Kadie turned around to face Marcus,
“Hmm?” she mumbled, still chewing on her muffin,
“Where’s Reece?” Marcus asked curiously, Kadie swallowed the piece of muffin she had in her mouth,
“He’s probably still sleeping.” Kadie told Marcus, “He hasn’t been sleeping well lately; I think his shoulder might be starting to pull again.” Kadie added. Reece had trouble with his shoulder ever since he had dislocated his arm from his socket when they prevented the resurrection of the Aparoids by Andrew all those years ago.
“Lazy.” Marcus told Kadie in a joking tone, Kadie smiled,
“Well as you said Marcus, ‘the old man needs his beauty sleep’.” Kadie joked with the same smile on her face. “Was there anything else?” Kadie asked Marcus,
“No that’s all thanks.” Marcus told her, Kadie nodded happily, she took a bite of her muffin and continued down the hall, on her way to the recreation room. Marcus smirked, he thought of an idea to rid him of this curse called boredom. He entered the kitchen looking for ‘tools’ to sure his boredom.

Reece laid on his bed in his and Kadie’s room, he had tucked himself tightly underneath the blankets of the bed. All that was free from the blankets was his head and his hand with a little bit of his arm exposed also. The cloth blanket raised and lowered with Reece’s breathing. Marcus smirked in delight. He reached into the bag he grabbed from the kitchen, inside were the ‘tools’ he would use to rid himself of this curse he called boredom. Marcus pulled out a container of whipped cream, he quietly shook the can up and down rapidity, Reece didn’t notice the sound since he was a very heavy sleeper, it takes a lot to wake him pre-maturely. Marcus use his index finger and his thumb to gently turn Reece’s hand over so his palm was facing upward. Marcus slowly sprayed the cream on Reece’s hand. Reece rolled his head onto the other side. Marcus froze, hoping Reece wouldn’t wake up, Reece grunted before becoming motionless again. Marcus waited a good five minutes to be sure that Reece was asleep. Marcus let out a sigh of relief when Reece was asleep. Marcus quickly put the rest of the cream on Reece’s hand. Marcus quietly snickered to himself, amused with the little prank he was playing on Reece. Marcus grabbed a plastic bottle of honey from the bag. He gently opened the top of it only slightly. He squeezed the bottle gently, a small trail of honey made its way onto Reece’s white, messy, medium length hair. Marcus crouched down and placed his muzzle in his hands, trying to muffle his quiet laughter. Marcus reached into the bag, he pulled out some bristles that he had taken from a brush. He gently rubbed them along Reece’s nose. Reece twitched his nose and moved his head slightly. Marcus did it again, Reece let out a frustrated groan, Marcus did it one more time. Reece’s hand slowly rubbed up his face, smearing the cream and honey up his fur and hair. Marcus grinned in delight, he quickly took his bag and ran out of Reece’s room. Marcus ran down the hall of the Great Fox, delight and success filled his face. Todd walked into the hallway of the Great Fox from the recreation room, Marcus ran into him, almost knocking his uncle over,
“Whoa!” Todd yelped as he staggered backwards,
“Sorry Uncle.” Marcus quickly apologized,
“Why are you in such a hurry?” Todd questioned, a loud, angry roar could be heard down the hall behind Marcus,
“MARCUS!” Reece growled from his bed. Todd smirked at Marcus,
“Now I see,” Todd chuckled, “Quick, you better go before he rips off your head using that pony tail of yours.” Todd suggested as he stood to the side of the hall.
“Thanks Todd.” Marcus thanked his uncle as he ran past him, laughing as he found a place to hide.

There were three cans sitting on a flat rock, the cans were crushed to a paper thin size, the thin side was pointed outwards. One shot was fired, birds flew out from the nearby by trees, fleeing from the potential danger, another shot was fired and another. Apart from some scared birds no damage was done. Three more shots were heard they were followed by the loud ‘clang’ sound that the cans made when the bullets hit them. The sound of the meadow returned, apart from the chirping of birds.
“Ha! I told you I was a better the marksman.” Krystal boasted to Fox, gently shoving him. Fox rolled his eyes,
“I guess you’re right.” He admitted as he stood up from his sniping position, “I still kick your butt in flying though.” Fox told her with a smirk,
“I’ll give you that one.” Krystal replied, wrapping an arm around Fox. Fox put his arm around his wife, enjoying her company. A loud ringtone started playing from Fox’s pocket, Fox looked down at his pants as he reached into his pocket, he pulled out his mobile phone, he flipped the top of the phone up, a small holographic photo of Marcus popped out of the phone, Fox pressed the accept button,
“Marcus, how you doing?” Fox asked as he put Marcus on loudspeaker,
“Fine, I tired calling Mom’s phone but she didn’t answer and wasn’t talking on it which was definitely a surprise for me.” Marcus replied,
“Hi Marcus.” Krystal greeted in a serious tone, smirking as she did so,
“Oh… uh… Hi Mom.” Marcus awkwardly replied, Krystal quietly snickered to herself, “Yeah I just called to tell you that we are twenty minutes from Corneria, I just wanted to see if you guys are free, I will call in if you are.” Marcus told them,
“Yes we are free dear.” Krystal told Marcus, “You guys okay from your mission?”
“Apart from some scraped paint from out Arwings and Reece wanting to kill me, we are fine.” Marcus replied, chuckling after mentioning Reece,
“What did you do this time?” Fox asked,
“Oh nothing much, I just stuck cream and honey to his face while he was sleeping.” Marcus chuckled,
“Heh, Marcus, you really enjoy annoying him don’t you?” Fox asked,
“Yep.” Marcus replied happily,
“Well keep safe Marcus; we’ll see you when you get here.” Krystal told him, she ended the communication link. Krystal looked up at Fox, “Guess we’ll have to clean up the house a little.” Krystal noted,
“Yeah, I was afraid of that.” Fox replied. The vulpine couple picked up their rifles, they slung their straps over their shoulders and started walked through the meadow back to their home.

The Great Fox’s landing gear extended, it slowed down as it approached the surface of Corneria. The Great Fox gently landed on the landing pad. The ramp extended from the base of the Great Fox to the surface, Reece walked out onto the surface of Corneria, he stretched and happily took in the sun. The others followed Reece out of the Great Fox. Reece looked up at the sun and feeling its warmth he had grown to love,
“I’m going to be glad to get a full rest when I get back.” Reece told no one in particular,
“Well I’m going to call in home and see Mom and Dad,” Marcus told him, “I might see where Kari is at as well.”
“We’re going to go home for a while,” Todd added, “might go to that new café on the main strip tomorrow, you guys interested?”
“I’m game.” Reece answered, scratching his shoulder,
“Same.” Kadie added with a smile,
“I’ll probably go, might spend time with my parents though.” Marcus added,
“Okay, well get back to me on it.” Todd replied,
“I’ll go split our pay now, I’ll see you guys later.” Marcus told the group, with that said the group went to conduct their planned business.

A/N: I was going to make this chapter about 7-8 pages long, but I decided I would make half of it chapter one and the next chapter, chapter 2. Enjoy.

Prologue

Where we left off:

The events of the Skycutter Cruise ship were called a massacre. After the death of Reaver Weapons Inc. President Aaron Williamson, the Star Fox members contacted the General of the Cornerian Army, Bill Grey, explaining the misunderstanding and prevented another Lylat War. The task force sent to rescue survivors reported that 94% of the thirty thousand aboard the ship did not survive, many of whom were below the age of thirty, leaving behind spouses and young children. Those who were left alive at the base were prosecuted by the Cornerian Army; those responsible for firing the turret were executed. Those who guarded the base were handed down life sentences in high security prisons. Others who played a lesser role were sentenced to 25 years in the same prison.

Doctor’s reports tell us of the injuries that the members of the Star Fox group sustained during the incidents:
McCloud, Fox: Twisted Ankle (Level 3/5), Sprained Wrist (Level 2/5)
McCloud, Krystal: Concussion (Level 1/5), Body Bruising (Level 3/5), Shock (Level 5/5)
McCloud, Kari: Body Bruising (Level 4/5), Dislocated thumb (Level 2/5)
McCloud, Marcus: Concussion (Level 5/5), Cracked Skull (Level 3/5), Internal Bleeding (Level 2/5)
McCloud, Todd: Twisted Ankle (Level 4/5), Concussion (Level 1/5)
Foxglove, Lola: Shock (Level 3/5), Body Bruising (Level 3/5)
Kilza, Reece: Broken Arm (Level 4/5), Broken Leg (Level 3/5), Concussion (Level 3/5)
Hornbrew, Kadie: Shock (Level 4/5), Concussion (Level 2/5), Whiplash (Level 1/5)
Doctors were amazed at how Lola managed to remain relatively unharmed compared to the other members of the group .

What happened to…

Fox and Krystal: After helping to apprehend those he were still alive at the weapons base the couple helped Cornerian Officials handle the transportation of survivors back to Corneria for hospitalization and transport back to their homes. After they had helped deal with that they then got themselves treated. Fox was offered the position of Bill Grey’s advisor and successor, Fox respectfully declined. Krystal was offered the position as well, who also respectfully declined. They now spend their days together in their home, visiting friends and family, cherishing them.

Marcus and Kari: Marcus was immediately rushed to the medical bay on the Cornerian Warship due to the nature of his injuries. Kari went up to the ship to be with her brother at the request of her parents who needed to help the Cornerians. Marcus was made to remain in a wheel chair as his skull healed. Eventually he was back to his old self, antagonizing Reece and flying around in his Arwing. Kari kept in close contact with her family, seeing how much they meant to her after almost losing them. Marcus started re-recruiting for his Star Fire team.

Todd and Lola: Todd and Lola cherished each others company after the cruise, they had trouble trusting strangers for a while after the cruise since a stranger entered them into the contest. Todd and Lola helped clean up for a short while with Fox and Krystal before injuries caused them to retire to the hospital. Todd and Lola found out what it was like to feel loss for each other, feeling this brief sense of loss, Todd and Lola grew to be even closer than they were before. Todd and Lola agreed to help Marcus in his new Star Fox team ‘Star Strike’ if he ever requires assistance.

Reece and Kadie: Reece was shipped immediately to the Cornerian Warship for treatment of his broken bones, Kadie went with him to make sure all went well. Reece took a good two months to fully recover from his injuries. Fed up with what the world was continuing to throw at him Reece decided to be a senior member of Marcus’s Star Strike team, Kadie joined as well alongside Reece.

***

It has been two years since that cruise. Team Star Strike consists of Marcus, Kadie, Todd, Reece and Lola. Marcus took the position of the leader, Todd took the role of battle tactics, Lola took the role as a pilot and ground force, Kadie was in charge of the technology, Reece took the role of the senior battle pilot. The crew had returned from a mission dealing with intergalactic bandits, they entered the bridge of the Great Fox…

Marcus entered through the doors of the Great Fox, Reece, Kadie, Lola and Todd followed him. Marcus appeared to have a trace of cockiness about him, having survive two near death experiences and having his parents held hostage Reece thought he would be a little more cautious. Marcus walked up to the holographic image generator in front of him,
“ROB, connect us to General Grey.” Marcus ordered ROB,
“Affirmative.” ROB replied without any emotion in his voice, the generator projected an image of a rather attractive female winter wolf appeared on screen standing next to Bill, she wore the military uniform but it was very tight,
“General Grey here.” He answered,
“Hey General.” Marcus greeted, happily,
“Ah Marcus, how’s it going little buddy?” he asked,
“Not bad, not bad.” Marcus replied, “Those bandits won’t be troubling you anymore.” Bill smiled in delight,
“Great, trading caravans can return their routes there immediently. I will contact you when I have another task for you, your fee will be transferred to you soon. Catch you.” Bill ended the communication link. Marcus turned to ROB,
“Set course to Corneria please ROB.” Marcus asked,
“Affirmative.” ROB responded. ROB programmed the ship’s computers and systems, the ship slowly turned around, the thrusters activated and they started heading towards Corneria.

Bill’s advisor stood next to him,
“Sir, may I make a comment.” She asked,
“Sure Jess, don’t need to ask.” Bill replied, sitting down in his chair. Jess walked around to the front of his desk,
“I think you put too much faith in this ‘Star Strike’, I fear they may be the death of you one day.” She told him, Bill looked at her,
“I have known Marcus’s father since we were in the academy together, I have full faith in his son and his team. I am aware of your concerns, but dude, you need to trust me when I trust them.” Jess nodded,
“I understand sir.” She replied.

A/N: Got lots of ideas for this one, should be longer than Drums. Now that the catch-up chapter is out of the way I can start with the storyline. Now for that legal crap:

Star Fox and all its characters are ©Nintendo 1993-2010. I own all the stories I have written and my own characters. SF-O Julius Quasar owns Todd McCloud and Lola Foxglove. SF-O Kursed owns Kadie Hornbrew and Kari McCloud. Characters can be added in future chapters with permission of the owners if it is a fan character of another user, details of that character will be told in the author's note (A/N) of the chapter

The Prince and the Pilot
Nicely done. Cover blown, ski trip, this is getting quite nice.

I demand more :P

Sweet! Eternal daylight! Night club owners are going to be pissed :P

Oh yeah you're in Cali aren't you Julius?

The Blog of Evilwaffles
Heh, I still have to decide on where I want to go first :P

So long as I have insurance I should be okay. I'm not one to aggrevate people or carry lots of cash on me.

Diary of a Mad Furry
Anime? I honestly didn't know that about you. I just learned some new things about you :)

The Blog of Evilwaffles
Well, I have two things that I plan on doing that I have wanted to do for a long time and I'm starting to get my head around to actually doing them.

The first thing I want to do is create a podcast for something. Seeing as how this board could benefit from a regular podcast I'm thinking of doing it as the offical one for the site. My plan is to basically chat about random things with some Starfox related talk as well, I would really like to do this with two people via Skype so it isn't just me talking, I was thinking of having a different member on each time so it could add some originality to each podcast and make the members feel involved, we could also discuss some issues/topics/questions that people may bring up. So yeah that is my plan for the podcast, not so sure how well it will turn out to be though.

My second idea is a trip to the USA, I've always wanted to go there, I don't know why but it is a place I just have to see. I have almost got enough money for both the airfares and the accomadation, but my problem is I don't know what place I should go to. I was thinking of either Los Angeles, Indionapalis or New York. I've seen those places on TV and I'm interested to go there, I'm not sure where though.

Invitation to Darkness
I shall defend my dark corner with my life! You will never conquer my darkness! :3
