She found a safe spot amongst come close knit tress, Sienna set her down and inspected the head wound on the back of her head. That none was gonna hurt for a while, using bio-foam she closed up the wound and wrapped it up in the gauze she had, Sam was starting to come round and Sienna breathed a sigh of relief.
"Sam!" she hissed.
In her point of view, Sam slowly opened her eyes, her vision hazy and her head throbbed painfully and she gasped in surprise when she recognized the face of her rescuer. "Oh my god, Kilburn, what..."
"I need you to tell me what happened," Sienna interrupted, "I found you in the middle of no where, where is your team?"
Sam's eyes grew huge and she began to sputter for words but Sienna grabbed a firm grip of her shoulders and shook her gently, "calm down...deep breaths." Sam nodded and inhaled slowly, then exhaled. Memories flooded back into her head and she began to tremble slightly,
"we...we were attacked, by these people dressed in red and black, they..had big goggles and masks on their faces, they took my team and left me because apparently I wasn't fit enough to become apart of their "family"!" she nearly yelled, she looked so confused and filled with rage. She had only spent a short amount of time with them and already they had become close knit like a family. Sam looked to Sienna whose facial expression also confused her, she looked seriously grim.
"Sergeant, you got anything?" an older male voice was heard over the headset of their COM. Sienna stood up and looked around, her facial expression still the same. "Elkins, we are in WOLFBLOOD territory."
There was a pause, "ah shit... this isn't good. Your friend there got left behind huh, I'm surprised they didn't kill her."
Sienna looked sympathetically to Sam, "me too... they may have gotten scared off or they thought they had finished the job. In any case, this mission has become more serious than we realize."
"Shall I alert Daddy-O and your boyfriend?"
Sam raised an eyebrow and Sienna frowned to hide her blush, "he's not my boyfriend but yes, you need to tell them now."
"Boyfriend?" Sam asked but Sienna shot a warning glare and the youngin' didn't ask any further.
"we are on our way, meet at the rendezvous point."
Sam had never met David Elkins but had heard of him. Sam had to admit that he was a handsome fellow with sandy hair and bright blue eyes, though she had never liked the typical blond and blue eyed look. He had a big, goofy grin on his face as he approached nonchalantly.
"Hey! this must be the little sweetheart Sam!" he grinned at her, she blushed angrily. Won't be so sweet when I'm done kicking your ass!
"Sod off Big Bro," Sienna smacked his shoulder "heard anything from Daddy-O?"
"Nada," he sighed heavily "which concerns me."
Sam watched Sienna's face grow dark as she tried, "Daddy-O this is Little Sis at the rendezvous, do you copy?"
A feeling of dread suddenly overcame her and she looked around, "I am having the worst feeling...where is Harrison?"
"Back at the station," Elkins replied, "already checked with him."
"What's going on!" Sam finally cutted in, she was loosing her patience fast because of a. her head and b. her team was missing. and c. these people wouldn't tell her something that they CLEARLY knew about. "What is WOLFBLOOD?"
Elkins and Sienna looked at each other and she gestured with a hand and a shrug of her shoulders, "You explain David."
"Fine," he rolled his shoulders, "WOLFBLOOD is an occult organization that ONI has tried to cover up the existence of, back in the day, we had a little tangle with them, they were starting to believe that if we blended Covenant DNA with Human DNA, they would be able to create super soldiers for the Insurrectionist to command over to defeat the SPARTANs."
"What the hell?" Sam gasped,
"None but one of the experiments were a success," Sienna began, she closed her eyes as wave of something unreadable overcame her, "Jaeger is their only success and he is now the leader of WOLFBLOOD, he's powerful, ruthless and has no sense of moral. He's kidnapping people to experiment on to make more of what he is."
"And kill the others," Sam concluded, barely dabbing at the bandaged head wound she had.
"Kind of like Hitler, he plans to replace both Covenant and Human species with his own." Elkins sighed and shivered "He is one UGLY motherfucker too."
"You said it," Sienna sighed, "come on, we need to get out of here before they find us again."
"Chief was with you guys right?" Sam suddenly asked, Sienna gave her a pained look "If my concerns are correct, Chief is having an abomination with a vendetta on his hands."
Elkins handed Sam a pistol and she took it and they suddenly took off in a random direction, Sam followed trying not to trip "where are we going now?" she asked.
"If I know anything, Jaeger is going to find Chief to execute his vengeance." Sienna was jogging quickly as she looked over her shoulder at Sam, "where was the last time you saw Chief?"
"Its been weeks since I last saw Chief," Sam explained "I last saw him on the Star ship before I went to training."
"We best make haste then," David cut in, "before we don't make it in time."
"Chief is here!" Sam asked, Sienna didn't reply as their jog turned into a full sprint and all talking ceased. In the distance, a small tower of smoke was seen in the distance. Sam suddenly felt a chill go down her spine and she pushed back all sorts of pain as taught in ODST training and followed behind the veterans.
"here take my helmet," David made a full 360 turn and tossed his helmet without loosing his stride, Sam managed to catch it and put it on, Sienna had put her's on too in the midst of her full, seemingly unnatural sprint. She was unaware on how highly trained this team was when it came to dexterity.
They had bursts from the trees and saw the camp that Sam was stationed at was under heavy siege and attack. A couple fall warthogs were in their way and the three maneuvered them quickly. Sam watched as something came to life in Sienna's hand, it wasn't an energy sword because it was one bladed and smaller yet it seemed to fit like a short sword.
The people dressed in red and black with giant goggles and masks were fighting the UNSC personnel, though UNSC marines and ODST were skilled, they were outmatched by the sheer numbers. Sam raised her pistol and opened fired but David and Sienna were way head, she watched briefly as Sienna used her blade too all the enemy she passed in a dance of death. While Sienna used speed, David was using more of his strength and had managed to get a hold of a weapon she hadn't seen before, it looked like a gravity hammer but smaller in proportion. Sam focused on the enemies as she stayed back with the other marines, she tossed her pistol aside and took hold of an assault rifle.
Sienna used the art of Pancreation against the enemy, a ruthless and brutal martial art that was taught by Malcolm when she first came to the team. Blood was already coating her hands and arms from the amount of bodily contact she inflicted, she stole firearms and used them at the same time she used her martial art. David was using his hammer like weapon to smash his enemies, he managed to catch up with Sienna.
"You need to calm your tits woman!" he laughed
"Just fight you moron!"
In their distraction, a sudden blast practically right next to the pair knocked them to the ground as the people in red and black suddenly began to scurry away. At the edge of the camp, a line of humans dressed in grey had alien weapons pointed as they moved in synchronized motion, surrounding the remaining survivors. Sam and Sienna were now back to back, weapons raised.
"Who are these guys?" she hissed,
"No fucking clue!" Sienna hissed back, "But I don't like the looks of it."
"We have you outnumbered," A human voice suddenly boomed from behind the grey soldiers, "Our Lord and Father wishes to speak with you."
In perfect synch, the soilders broke a perfect path. Sam Watched over Sienna's shoulder as a human dressed in black walked through and saluted. There was silence before the unmistakable sounds of clanking metal reached their ears. Suddenly, a behemoth appeared out of thin air. Broad, slightly unbalanced shoulders, its legs represented an Elites and its broad chest that of a humans, its long arms were bulging with unnatural amounts muscle and its long talons on its hands and three toed feet were decorated with a ceremonial metal covering, giving them a more intimidating look the sharp pointed ends dug into the earth. A red cape behind it swayed gracefully, its entire face covered by a stealth elites helmet. Sam was without words, it towered over everything, at best it almost looked 10 feet tall.
"is that..." she whispered but Sienna shushed her with a hard nudge to her side. The formidable beast looked at the surrounded UNSC personnel and let out a gusty sigh.
"I shall make this perfectly clear," A deep, scratchy voice came from the helmet, "Your kind are no longer welcome in any part of the Sol System and in my future unless you have decided to switch loyalties and join me." it made an awful sound, almost like it was laughing, "Perfectly simple."
"Hell no, I will-" A young marine was silenced when the being reached out with his hand at lightning speed and slashed his face and torso deeply, blood sprayed in all directions. The young marine was dead before his body hit the earth, a giant pool of blood already forming. The rest of the UNSC survivors stayed still.
"Make your decision now humans, if you want to keep your lives."
Sam was shaking from the shock of the brutal kill and the rage she felt from this assholes ultimatum "Go to hell!" she suddenly shouted. Sienna looked over her shoulder at her, gaping at her through her helmet.
"You speak foolishly human," he snarled, "It will be your mistake once my claws have reached into your gut.."
"You will not touch her Jaeger," Sienna suddenly spoke, catching the behemoths attention, it reached out and grabbed her by the throat, David tried to save her but was held back. "Let go of me!" he roared, Sam watched in horror as Jaeger held Sienna high into the air, a nasty snarl coming through the helmet.
"We meet again Hell-bringer," it spoke but soon that nasty laugh again, "Tis a shame you did not take my special offer a long time ago."
Sienna could not respond for she was choking and gasping for air as she tried helplessly to pry those powerful, crushing fingers away from her.
"But perhaps I wasn't as persuasive then..." he seemed to sneer "because no one else but you will be able to fulfill it." he suddenly opened his hand and Sienna fell and crumpled to the ground, coughing and wheezing.
"Restrain her!" he barked the order and looked to the rest. "Kill the others."
"NOO!" David roared as Sienna was dragged away, followed behind the behemoth. Sam tried to follow but was punched down by one of the enemy soldiers. The screen of her helmet shattered, the safety glass got inside her suit and bits flew everywhere.
"Ready!" the enemy Marshal barked and all weapons were pointed at the UNSC survivors, Sam realized this was to be a classic execution. But something caught her eye as a glimmer of olive green sudden came up behind the lines. Hope suddenly flooded through her.
