Chapter 3 - Behind Enemy Lines

Fox was the first who regained consciousness. When he woke up, he realized that he was shot down along with his partner. He also noticed that his Arwing was totally wrecked from the impact but good thing the impact with soft desert sand only gave him some ordinary injuries that were not lethal...

"My God! I can't believe this!" - Fox exclaimed -

He then took a first aid kit that was intact from the crash and he wraps his wounds with bandages. He also administered himself a shot of adrenaline. After that, he looked around and he saw something the strike fear in his heart.

The sight of another downed Arwing reminded him of Krystal. He then ran towards it. Upon arriving, Fox saw Krystal lying on the sand and with some metallic parts pinning her legs...

"Krystal! Are you okay?!" - Fox asked while shaking her up -

Krystal didn't respond since she was still unconscious from the crash. Fox removed the debris that pinned her and he checked her pulse but there was none. Realizing that, Fox immediately perform CPR in a chance to resuscitate Krystal. Fox repeatedly done a few chest compressions and some artificial ventilation but she was still out. Fox began to be anxious...

"Come on, Krystal! Wake up!" - Fox screamed -

He continued on doing CPR until finally, Krystal was being revived. She opened her eyes and gasped. Fox was very relieved that she was finally up...

"F-Fox? W-What's going on in h-here?" - Krystal asked, weakly -

"We crash behind enemy lines, Krystal. Good thing we both survive the crashes." - Fox replied swiftly -

He then took the last remaining bandages to patch up Krystal's wounds and he also gave her the last adrenaline shot. Width a few seconds, Krystal's vitals recovered. While she recovers, Fox checked the area for any potential threats that might be patrolling. The coast was clear since there were nothing than just sand. He then removed some important gears from the Arwings before he looked at her...

"Krystal, we may be trapped in here but our mission is not yet done. We need to get rid of that Syndicate. Are ready to return for the front lines?" - Fox remarked with a question -

"Yes, Fox! Count me in! I want them all to pay for this. " - Krystal replied -

Fox grins. He then took out his sidearm, a plasma gun, from his holster. Krystal also drew out her own weapon from her own holster. She then stands behind him...

"Ok, let's move!" - Fox said -

Both of them then set off towards the wilderness of the hot desert.


It was almost dusk when the 2 partners arrived at the unprotected part of the Syndicate's complex. Both of them quickly hid themselves in the shadows when they saw a hostile Yihebezan (Yeah-Beh-Zan) by the crates. Fox noticed that he was sleeping and a Karambit Knife was being placed next to a crate. He backed off a little and he looked at Krystal...

"Stay here. He's mine. Just stay here and wait for my signal." - Fox said -

The blue vixen nodded. Fox silently went out from the shadows while Krystal silently stayed on her position. Fox approaches the crate and he grabbed hold the Karambit Knife. He then approached the sleeping guard. When he was in front of him, Fox covered the enemy's mouth with his gloves. The guard woke up and saw him but as he was going to raise the alarm, Fox stabbed him in the neck. The stabbed guard only groan as blood gushes out from the neck. Fox hushes him down...

"Sleep tight." - Fox remarked -

Upon saying that, the guard finally died. He then drags the body away and hidden it on a empty metal cargo container. He then returned to Krystal, who saw the impressive kill that he done...

"Nice kill, Fox." - Krystal complimented -

"Thanks, Krystal." - Fox replied, smiling on her compliment -

Both of them went deeper to the complex under the cover of darkness.


This is the end of Chapter 3. Fox and Krystal finally manage to reach the unprotected sector of the Syndicate's complex. Stay tuned for Chapter 4, guys!
