The buzzing sound of machine was starting to fray my nerves. I was sitting
quietly at my seat, watching the passing scenery at the monitor with
ultimate boredom. It was navy blue, almost black out there. The stars
merrily twinkled in the far away galaxy, pretty and yet uncaring about what
I'm gonna do. Nothing new.
I drummed my fingers at the controlling device. Every time my fingers touch
the flat glass panel, it made a little light blue square on the surface. I
carefully not let my finger stray away, incase it accidentally switched off
the autopilot. There is no need for a failure now. Though I was trained in
military since I can walk, this is the first time I'm going to the real
battlefield. I'm nervous like hell, but my expression doesn't give any
indication of it. I am, after all, the best soldier. Second to my sister
Five minutes until reaching Earth's atmosphere Mayor Kagami's voice broke
my trance. I stopped drumming my fingers and readied myself. My hands
automatically fasten the seatbelt, turning on the visor and switching the
current F-1 setting into E-5 to enter the atmosphere. I gripped the steer
as I felt the Earth's gravity starting to pull my Shinma to it. I murmured
silently to myself.
"Welcome to your debut, Higurashi Kagome."
Between Moon and Earth
In this time, earth had lost its beauty and it's purpose. Sea was no longer
turquoise but a sickening brown. The once blue sky was now red. Greenery
was rare to found. There were only sand wherever you look. The old metal
buildings, used to be reactors, were the only human's creation that can
survive the harsh, unforgiving condition.
It was a time of war between earthling and moon people as human and youkai
were now divided into five levels. The first level was human who have
psychic power in their blood, a rare species. The second level governed the
moon and the third level was civilian. Those peoples lived in moon
comfortably where technology grew fast. The fourth and fifth levels consist
of youkai and descendant of convicts were outcast who lived on earth. We,
moon people, regarded them as trash, dump.
Both sides battle ferociously and constantly for their own reason.
I, Higurashi Kagome, was one of the rare first levels human. It's something
to be proud of since there were only a few of us. My older sister, Kikyou
was the first too. She was everything I wanted to be. At the age of
fourteen, she became the moon's number one soldier. Her power was
incredibly strong and she could use it to her convenient. Unlike me, my
power was still unstable. However I knew I would master it someday.
I could see the battlefield now. The uranium reactor was standing proudly
in the midst of golden sands. I looked around the area to find any opponent
but found none. I directed my Shinma to land on the reactor's field without
sound with my allies followed.
No Rebellion in sight I said as I scanned the area once again.
Better move it now.
The other robots started to enter the building to collect the material as I
watch carefully, ready for any sudden attack but it was still opponent
less. My riffle was poised as my allies started filling the metal box. It
went smoothly and soon Mayor Kagami told us to get back.
I was waiting for the others to launch first since my Shinma didn't need
much time for it. As my fingers clicked on the glass panel, I noticed
something abnormal on the left side, fifty yards away. In addition those
something moved fast.
Watch out, Rebellion from seven o'clock. I yelled through the
transmitter. Some of the robots landed again, to back me up while others
kept flying away to brought the material to moon.
No longer than I said that, riffles voice could be heard. The Rebelion,
using sand-colored robots, some were shooting at the flying robots to take
them down and some were heading towards us.
Naturally, the fight broke out. I shot them continuously, bringing two
down. My side wasn't doing well either. The fleeing robots dropped down the
box that held the material and one of them was falling with trail of smoke
behind it. Our ammunitions weren't many. My ammo ran out and I had to
resort to hand-in-hand fighting.
I sheathed out my Japanese katana, Shinma's weapon and charged at the
Rebellion under the rains of bullets. Do you think I'm suicidal? This
couldn't compare to the time when I practiced with my sister. She's a demon
in disguise tutor.
I swiftfully avoided the never-ending bullet with grace and closing the
space between the Rebellions and me. One of the Rebellions threw aside its
riffle and pulled out its sword that was much larger than mine. Frankly it
was the first time I see a sword as big as it and I was a bit scared.
However it didn't stop me as we clashed our swords together. My Shinma
moved gracefully and my opponent skillfully as we battled each other in a
dance. 'Wow, this person is as good as Kikyou,' I mused silently, admiring
whoever rode the robot as it came close to cutting Shinma.
Oi, bastard. Don't just running away, damn it. Fight seriously. A
guy's sound was heard from the robot. You fight like a bitch.
I was offended but before I made another move, Mayor's Kagami's voice was
heard from the receiver.
Higurashi, we have to leave now. Act defeated and went on with the
plan. I pray you both come back safely.
Yes, Mayor. Yes, the plan. I was here for the plan, not for
collecting the material like those Rebellion thought but it's for another.
Remember when I said I idolized my sister? Apparently she was beaten (I
keep wondering how), she and her robot, Linear, were captured by the
Rebellion. And it's my job to retrieve her from whatever hellhole she dug
herself into. Joy.
I sighed. I changed the setting to slower Shinma's movement and switching
off the nerve control system. By turning off the system, I couldn't move
Shinma easily but I didn't exactly want to felt the pain that would be
transmitted to me if Shinma were hacked. My opponent seemed to be an
uncouth lad. After my other allies flew away, and some of the Rebellions
screaming profanities; my opponent regarded me arrogantly.
Left by your allies, huh. Moon people are all bastard.
At least we don't talk trash like you earthling.
Yes, have any problem with it?
Nope, not at all.
With that our fight begun anew again. I felt the difficulty to match the
guy's move and was quite desperate to show a good act. He didn't seem to
Inuyasha, don't dilly dally with it. Just beat it so we can go
home. Another Rebellion's voice called and a second of my distraction was
enough for Inuyasha to rammed the sword to Shinma's head. 'The General
won't like this' as I shut off the program to protect Shinma from any
Shinma lay perfectly still and two of the Rebellions dragged I and Shinma
to wherever their headquarter is. Hopefully Kikyou was there too, I
silently prayed. If not, Shinma's sacrifice would be of no use. It's spare
part cost a lot.
End chapter one
AN: My recipe to cure writer's block is to write another story. I hope this
is an original idea. Don't mind the title. I'm bad at making it and
summary. What do you think? Should I continue or left it as it is? Those
reviews will help me getting motivated to write another chapters #hint,
