Hey y'all! Okay, I am so glad that FanFiction has it where you can write stories for video games! I have actually been writing this story for an extremely long time and I always wished I could publish it. Ah! I am so excited! Sorry if the summary sucked, it's much better if you actually read it, I swear! Enjoy! Oh, and so you know what the characters look like, I am pasting some info from a website that I got. I'm changing their looks up a bit like Chopper's hair and the ages of the characters. Oh, and if anyone has read any of my other stories, I really like the name Elizabeth Banks so, yeah.

Prologue

**Genette**

I have always been fascinated by wars; it probably has something to do with my sister Elizabeth, who had always been the history fanatic in our family besides our Uncle Jason. It seems they rubbed off on me.

She knew everything about every war. It was no surprise to any of us when she joined the military and an even smaller surprise when she joined the Air Force. She had always been in love with jets, especially because they were so fast, and I must say, she loved the pilots too but that was the boy-crazy side of her.

Aviator glasses were her favorite and she went through so many pairs because she always lost them. I have to admit that I loved aviators as well and had my own pair but I never lost them. I still have the pair from when I was fifteen. It's ten years later.

While my sister went to go fight for our country, I went into journalism, specializing in military articles and stories. But my main focus was on a war that happened when I was ten years old: The Belkan War. Somehow, I convinced my boss to let me go to Sand Island for an article. On the plane ride there, I started typing the introduction to my article.

Fifteen years ago, there was a war. Well, war's broken out here plenty of times before. They've tried to invade the southlands through the northern valley time and time again. Luck was never on their side though and their victories didn't last long. They didn't realize times had changed. Facing one defeat after another, losing territory and watching their nation dwindle, they built up their industrial strength to unprecedented heights, and used it to wage one final battle against the world.

That was fifteen years ago.

They fought ferociously, but were utterly defeated. The Belkans then committed the unthinkable; they used nuclear weapons on their own soil. Seeing this tragedy unfold before their own eyes, the victorious countries vowed to throw down their weapons.

The world was once again at peace, and thanks to them it seemed like it would last forever. On a distant island, far away from civilization, the protectors of the peace take to the skies.
