Macross 7: First Love......
The crowd rose to their feet raising their hands, yelling in ecstasy. The light grew to a sudden dim, making everyone jump, looking around for the figure of their idols. Another sound of a note began forming into a beguiling tune. Finally the lights were killed off, the fans grew more desperate; when finally a familiar face came into the scene. Dark green eyes were shown, she lifted her head up high and looked at the crowd. She stood there silent, waiting for the moment to begin. Her had turned looking to her left; An empty space beside a guitar made her insecure, but at the same time angry. She turned to her right facing Ray, her fellow band member, giving a slight nod.
The crowd grew restless after a couple minutes, Mylene looked down, closing her eyes. She took a minute, took a deep breath and finally hit the first tune in her guitar. The microphone moved closer to her mouth, she looked up and gave a faint smile.
"It's a new time yeah its a Saturday night
feel the movement get ready to fight
stand up take your time and do it right"
From a distance high above the trees, a figure lurked out of the shadows. He peered out looking at the crowd low before him. He gave a smirk, waiting for the right note to hit. He moved his hand toward his face, pushing his glasses more closer to his eyes. Finally he jumped down, from the hill where the tree resided, he ran toward the crowd. He held in his breath and finally jumping as high as he could go. He let himself fall free, his arm moved out toward his shoulders; reaching for the string flapping at his face. A parachute red with white stripes around the edges came out of his back; creating a pull to slow down. The approaching shadow caught the fans attention, making them go even wilder. Mylene looked up, her eyes widened as he was approaching closer to them. She held a strong grip onto her guitar trying to hold the anger in.
He smirked at Mylene as he feet touched the ground and ran to his guitar. He turned and with a great loud passionate voice leading out his feeling. The time came, Mylene looked at Basara and then turned when it was their turn to sing together.
"No more wasting time
let your dreams make everything all right
don't give up your dance
you just take a chance and feel the dreams
choose the way you make your stance
you take my hand and
we're dancing on the Planet dance."
The crowd yelled even further almost making it seem as if their lungs were about to explode.
"Fire Bomber! Fire Bomber!" They yelled out.
Basara smiled as he sang, on the other hand Mylene closed her eyes angrily. She tried to ignore it but it was useless, there was no point. The night continued, all the excited fans still remained even after the Fire Bomber's performance. Mylene walked out to the back of the stage just to find Basara with Rex, her blood boiled in fury. Although When she was about to walk toward them just to ruin their fun, Ray grabbed her by the shoulders and nodded. Mylene gave him a sad stare, she held her mouth shut; her head turned back to Basara and Rex, watching how she was flirting with him. Basara stood there looking with a blank stare, but smiled with respect
Mylene walked off angrily; Ray watched her as she stumped out of the scene. He turned to Basara and walked off as well. Mylene's deep thoughts surrounded her, she closed her eyes ad then reopened them. A sudden voice from afar caught her attention, she looked bother ways trying to find the source. Deep within the crowds she saw a familiar arm wave, her eyes widen, it was Gamlin.
"Mylene! Mylene!" Gamlin shouted.
"Gamlin!" Mylene responded.
He pushed against the pressure of the crowd, trying squeeze out between them. After minutes of struggle, he ran to her. Her moved his arm toward the back of his head smiling. With the other he pulled out a bouquet of flowers, Mylene smiled and took them with great delight. A pleasant smell came from them, maker her mind relax from every distress. He stared at her peaceful face, something that he was dying to see.
"Mylene you performed lovely today." He complimented.
"Oh thank you." She politely responded.
An unwelcome disturbance came into place, Gamlin looked up and saw Basara with Rex. Mylene squeezed the bouquet of flowers tightly. She turned and saw Basara waving to Rex; the exquisite smile that bloomed forth disappeared in an instance. Gamlin took note, he moved his eyes to Basara whom he his back to them. Rex drove off dangerously as ever with the rest of her gang. Basara turned and saw the expression on Mylene face. She shook uncontrollably, dropping the flowers and rant to him angrily.
"Basara you are so irresponsible! You know that you have to be here in time for the gig." She expressed herself.
He looked at her and then closed his eyes walking off. Mylene squeezed her knuckles tightly, making the veins in her hand pop out.
"Basara are you listening to me? Basara!" She continued.
"Enough! I will do what I want." He responded.
"Do what you want? That is always what I hear. You have to take in consideration of others as well . This isn't always about you!" She complained.
He didn't respond this time, he just kept on walking heading behind the stage. Mylene was more infuriated with him. Those green eyes lost their right happy glow Gamlin has seen before. He looked at the flowers on the floor, some of them destroyed. She turned to him and then realized the flowers on the floor. Her foot was on them, guiltiness overshadowed her mind. She bent down and picked them up, some of th peddles were falling down. Only three of the five flowers were still intact, her heart became sadden.
"I'm sorry, you brought me these flowers and now because of me they are ruined." Mylene apologized.
"Don't worry, I don't blame you. How about in order to make it up come with me." Gamlin said with sincerity.
She thought about it for a moment and then nodded her head for acceptance.
Several explosions rang through each square inch of the planet. Thousands fell in the hands of their invaders, there was no escape. City after city were destroyed in seconds, all their defenses were useless. The leader of the planet was giving all he had in order for the security of the planet.
"What is our status?" The leader spoke
"I don't think we are going to make it, our forces are useless against them. " one of his troops reported.
"Isn't there anything we can do? There has to be something, it is my duty to protect our people."
"We can only hope sir."
He held his hands tightly, hoping that everything will be over soon. Deep within the invader's ship, a dark figure peered out into the monitor. A black cloak surrounded the body, half of the face was metal. The eyes were dark gray, hair was black with silver streaks. He gave a smirk as she saw the planet crumble in pieces. Finally another figure appeared at a distance. This one had a firm death look, his eyes were blue. There appeared to be a scar across his face starting at his eyebrow and ending at his nose. His left arm was amputated but it was replaced with a mechanical arm. He stood there watching the other one.
"Your plans are going as you ordered, my lord." He spoke.
"Good, you have proved yourself well Gladius, now I have a little task for you." The one near the monitor said.
"As you wish." Gladius responded.
More troops were sent down to secure the planet's most valuable treasure, one that would reveal the rebirth of their power, but the death of a life. The sound to the alarm rang, the military of the planet were assembled to fight. The people ran to cover, but the bombings came to them taking their lives.
"They have penetrated through our first defense, now they are entering to the yellow zone." One of his his soldiers reported.
"They must not get near the palace. Have the troops surround the palace, they must not get the treasure." The leader ordered.
"Sir!" He replied.
The defenses were set, all of their weapons were set to destroy anything that came with in a close distance. Missiles were being fired; the dust of the ground began to arise causing a debris to overshadow them. The noises grew louder, making the troops feel insecure. Sudden explosion, lit the skies, causing tremendous blood spill, all the troops were on full alert. One after another one, they fell, while others were ripped into pieces at the hands of their murderers.
"Sir, we have to abandon this area, they will be here in no time." Another soldier reported.
"No I have made an oath to protect it, and I am not backing down from my must secure it, we cannot let them have it. For years we have feared this day, and now is the time to protect it."
A sudden explosion blasted through bringing down the wall, causing minor explosions within the room. On the floor, the leader laid, the debris covered his lungs causing him to cough. Gladius stood out, looking down at him a smirk; the man looked up at him and his eyes widened in fear.
"No, it can't be..." He said.
Gladius stood there looking into his eyes, something strange overcame him. Looking at the aged man the unknown sensation grew more. With his hand he picked him up and carried him out of the room, leaving the other to their fate.
His body trembled all the way, he couldn't believe what he saw. So long ago, it was impossible, was it all a dream? On his knees he laid, his arms were held behind him. He tried to speak, but he was beaten down, He cough out more blood out, pouring it onto the floor. As he lifted his heard, it dripped from his mouth.
Sudden heavy footsteps caught his attention, the figure came closer. As his vision became clear, his heart pounded immensely.
"It's been a long time, your majesty." He taunted.
"Who are you? Why have you done such a ruthless thing to my people." The man replied.
"Has it been that long? I am surprise you don't remember me." He commented.
When he came into view the eyes widened even more, one whom head betrayed his people for power, ambition and for egoism.
"Lexis, it can't be, you are suppose to be dead." He said in shock
"Sorry to disappoint you." He continued.
"Why are you doing this?" He questioned.
"That shouldn't matter to you. Now hand it over." Lexis responded.
"I will not, I remain loyal to my people, I have swore my life no to seduce myself into selfishness. Darkness doesn't not possess over my heart." he further explained.
"Ha! Don't make me laugh, oh wait you did. You scums like you certainly get in the way too much. I have only come here to regain the power you took away." Lexis stated.
"You will never have it." He bravely spoke.
He looked straight into Lexis and then turned to the other figure that appeared beside him.
"How is it possible, you can't be serious but how?" he continued on.
Finally all of the pieces came together, he looked at Gladius and then at Lexis, the feeling of fear was over powering him.
"No, no its not for you think, he is just using you. He will ruin you, all he is looking for you to just be his toy." He helplessly spoke.
"Oh shut, you sound like a broken record, you are wasting our time. You can try all you want but nothing will work." Lexis taunted.
"There will be on that will stop your monstrous schemes. By my word you will certainly find your destruction."
Lexis chuckled at his remarks, then one of his soldiers ran up to him he gave a whisper to him. Upon hearing such news, Lexis smiled and turned.
"I guess I have no use for you no more. Seal him off!" Lexis finished.
"No you must listen, he will cause you nothing but doom." He kept on saying. Despite his efforts he was beaten more and dumped into a solitude room. The doors were shut tightly, darkness filled the room, everything was silent. He looked up toward the ceiling, thinking to himself that he had failed his people.
"I'm sorry but I must protect it. Every bit of this place will be forgotten, but now I must summon you my dear. Where ever you are you must find that one that was written long ago that would help our people. From your lost form you must return to us with another. Those fools must not prevail, let your heart no longer carry that hate rather listen and see the pure heart." He spoke to himself.
Lexis arrived in a dark room, a chamber filled with crystals, rays of light sparked throughout the place. At the center there was a cube floating, he smiled upon seeing it.
"St last, for such a long time, it finally came. Now it is time to make dreams a reality." he laughed.
As soon as he removed the cube, the whole room began to shake. The walls were falling apart, Lexis hesitated and order for an immediate evacuation.
"That fool! If he think that I won't escape, he is wrong! Everyone retreat!" Lexis ordered.
Time was running out, all of the troops ran back to their ships. Explosions were ripping chambers, buildings, cities; fire was blazing every where. AS the ships were lifting off, two did not manage to escape. The area finally met its destruction, pieces moved across the opened area, Gladius stood there staring as the debris settled. Lexis smirked and took hold of the cube.
"Finally, at last Gladius, now we can begin the real hunt. My dreams are about to be revealed.
He looked into the cube as it glowed brighter and brighter. A bigger smirk took over his face, he stood there laughing as his troops watched how amused he was.
