Author's Note: So now I'm going to write my Halo-Rosario cross. The only other one I've seen is written in Spanish. So it's almost an untapped area. Very soon I will be posting the first chapter of my LOTR story. And don't worry I will still be updating The Rising Storm. This takes place at the end of Reach, and the episode where we meet Mizore, so onto the story.
'I did it, its over.' thought a man. Corporal Andrew Sampson was lying up against one of the buildings that had dotted the landscape leading up to the breaking yards. Noble Six had wanted to stay behind and man the rail gun but Andrew shot that idea down quickly. So he had stayed and killed the covenant cruiser that was barreling down on them. The Autumn had escaped with Six, Chief and Colonel Mateo; and Andrew was happy. His lifetime kill counter hovered at exactly 99. 'Damn, just one more kill and I would have hit 100' he thought. He was sitting in a sea of bodies, all of them covenant. But the kills hadn't come cheaply. An energy sword had pierced his side; a plasma blast had hit him in the chest and he still had some unexploded needles in him.
Corporal Sampson had barely joined the UNSC Marines 3 years ago and this was his first mission as an ODST. He had dropped in 'feet first into hell' when the first Covenant ship had appeared in orbit of Reach. He fought with his fellow soldiers at many of the battles; he even got to fight with some Spartans and the Legendary Marcus Mateo. He fought with the Spartans Nobel Six and Emile and the fellow ODST Marcus Mateo, at the breaking yards that held the Halcyon-Class Cruiser Pillar of Autumn. Nobel Six had volunteered to stay when Emile was killed by the Elite, but Andrew knew that they were going to need every Spartan in the fight and took his place. He fought hard and destroyed the Covenant Cruiser that was coming to attack the Pillar of Autumn, allowing it to escape with its precious cargo. He found himself outnumber, outgunned and out of options. So he fought with all his might.
He knew he was going to die on Reach, but he was going to sell his life at the highest price possible. He checked his ammo and started to rise when he heard a noise. Looking up he saw the bulbous shape of a phantom heading right for him. 'I don't have the firepower to take that down' he thought watching it approach. Then he remembered the rugby sized device on his back. His lips split in an evil grin as more covenant arrived. He pulled the FURY tactical Nuke from his back and primed it. He looked at the covenant forces arrayed against him and smiled. "See you Mother Fuckers in Hell." he said slamming his hand down on the activation switch. His world went white then black and he knew no more.
A girl sat by herself in a section of a dead forest. She had blue hair, blue eyes and had a lollypop in her mouth. She wore a blue and white sweater pulled down on her shoulders and a green skirt. She was alone and crying. Mizore Shriayuki was 15 years old and was a student at Youkai Academy, the same school where a certain someone also attended. Tsukune Aono had just utterly rejected her and she was depressed beyond words. She had been sitting, after her rejection, for some time before a brilliant flash of white light drew her out. She cautiously moved to the edge of the forest and stopped when she saw what had caused the light. She could honestly say she was not expecting what she found. She saw what looked like a man in black armor lying in the middle of a scorched and burned area. But before she could go and get a better look at this new arrival she felt a presence behind her. She found herself face to face with the Physical Education Teacher Okuto Kotsubo and she shivered. He smiled down at her. "I knew I was going to find you here. You always come here when you're sad." he said. She shivered again, though subconsciously. "Come on, you were so ready to throw yourself at me then. You shouldn't care what I do to you now." he said, a sadistic grin crossing his face. His lower half and arms transformed into tentacles and he moved towards Mizore. She did the only thing she could think of; she screamed.
When Andrew heard the girl scream he opened his eyes and took in his surroundings. 'Am I dead?' he asked himself. The throbbing of his injuries gave him his answer. 'Nope, still kicking, though after that nuke I should be dead, at least I won't die from my wounds.' he thought to himself. He then heard the girl scream again. He slowly sat up and turned to where the screaming came from. What he saw chilled him to the bone. Some kind of tentacle monster was attacking a girl about 15 years of age. He couldn't help but smirk at the irony of it all. Then the smirk left his face as he returned to a combat mindset. He stood and turned to the pair. "Hey Squidbilly! Why don't play with someone your own size?" he yelled.
The pair turned to him and stared. Mizore was shocked that he was up and actively defending her. Okuto dumped Mizore unceremoniously on the ground and moved toward this new person. He wrapped him in his tentacles and pulled him up to face level with him. "Trying to be a hero eh? Well I'll make sure to squeeze the life out of you before I return to what I was doing." he said. Andrew nodded his head as he felt the tentacles start to squish him. "I'm sure you will but one thing first." he said. He pulled out a glowing blue ball and slammed it up against Okuto's head and it stuck there. Okuto dropped the ODST and tried to pull it off as it started glowing brighter, and made a high pitched whine. "See you in hell Covi Mother Fucker." Andrew said as he hit the ground and rolled away from the struggling thing.
The plasma grenade exploded and vaporized the top third of the monsters body. What was left slowly fell to the ground in a heap. Andrew stood and walked over to the body. "I love the smell of cooked Calamari in the morning." he said. 'Well this is no species of Covenant that I'm familiar with, but then again no one said that they only had the species we've fought.' he thought. He then turned back to where he had woken up and walked toward it. He crouched down to see if anything was there that he could salvage. He managed to find his SMG and a few mags for it, and what looked like an Elite energy sword handle. He strapped the hilt onto himself and gathered the SMG and ammo.
He straightened and walked toward the girl. He wasn't surprised when she backed away from him, considering what she had just witnessed. He depolarized his helmet to show her his face when he neared her. "It's ok, I'm here to help. You don't have to be afraid." he said in a soothing tone. He was not prepared when her eyes teared up and she threw herself at him, hooking her arms around his neck. He stood dumbfounded for a moment then put his arms around her. They sat for a moment, then he gently pushed her away so he could look in her eyes, his helmet still depolarized. "Come on, we've got to get out of here before more Covenant show up." he said.
Mizore had no idea what the Covenant was but she nodded anyway. Andrew got to his feet and helped her to hers. "I'm Andrew, what's your name?" he asked. "Mizore." she replied. "Mizore, do you know where we can hide out for awhile?" he asked. She nodded and he motioned for her to lead the way. She stepped forward and Andrew followed with his SMG in a ready position. They soon arrived at a cliff side where Andrew finally felt his wounds catch up with him. Mizore looked at him in concern "Stay here, I have some things that will help you." she said. Before Andrew could protest Mizore vanished into the brush.
Back at the Academy, Tsukune, Moka, Kurumu, and Yukari were talking with Ms. Nekonome. "But Ms. Nekonome, Mizore couldn't have been responsible for it." Tsukune said. They were trying to convince Ms. Nekonome that Mizore hadn't killed Okuto. When they had been informed that the destroyed body of Okuto had been found everyone had instantly pinned it on Mizore. The Newspaper Club had adamantly opposed this though they were eventually overruled. A general order went out to capture Mizore and the Newspaper Club was conscripted. Moka thought that they should try Mizore's room to see if she was there.
They left Ms. Nekonome's office and made their way to the female dormitories. They were close when they saw a certain purple haired girl quickly leaving the dormitories and entering the brush with several items in her arms. They decided to follow her to see where she went and to bring her in.
Andrew was sitting on a rock waiting for Mizore when his motion tracker started going off. It showed one person a ways in front of a group of four others. He didn't know who was in the group but he had a pretty good impression on who was in the lead. He grabbed his SMG, though it still pained him, got down behind the rock and waited. A minute later, Mizore exited the brush and looked around for Andrew when she heard his voice. "MIZORE, DOWN!" he yelled jumping out of cover and leveling his SMG at the underbrush. After seeing him kill Okuto she quickly dropped to the ground, still clutching the items. As soon as she was out of his line of fire he opened up.
The Newspaper club had followed Mizore from the dormitories into the forest for some time. They all wondered why she was heading to the cliffs with the items in her arms. Then, all hell broke loose. They heard a voice call out 'MIZORE, DOWN!' then the forest exploded around them. They all managed to get behind thick trees and wait out the barrage. When it finished they all rushed forward to find out what had attacked them.
They saw Mizore starting to stand and a man in black armor standing behind a rock pointing what could only be described as a gun at them. The man vaulted over the rock, ran to Mizore's side, helped her up and stood in front of her in a protective stance. He quickly retreated with Mizore behind the rock and took cover. The four friends could only stand in shock at what they saw. "Who are you?" asked Yukari. "I don't talk to covenant bastards!" the man called back. He accented his words with a burst from his SMG. Yukari stood dumbfounded, 'What was the covenant, and did he call her a bastard?" she asked herself as she dove for cover. The others of the group also dove for cover. "Hey! That's not a nice thing to say to a kid." called out Moka. "Shut the fuck up Harpy! I know all about your plans to infiltrate the UNSC lines you damn covenant fuckers! You and your damned shape shifting!" Andrew yelled back.
On Moka's Rosary a red eye with a slit appeared on the jewel. 'Have Tsukune remove the rosary so I can show that pompass ass his place!' Inner Moka yelled. Outer Moka could only sit behind her cover in shock. No one had ever talked to her like that, even when she was attending human schools. Tsukune heard what the man said and fumed. He rushed over to Moka and ripped the rosary off her chest. The air grew heavy and the sky darkened as Inner Moka took over from Outer Moka. Andrew sneaked a look over his cover and grimaced, the girl with the pink hair had changed. Her pink hair had turned silver and her eyes had gone red with slits like a cat. Other aspects of her body also changed adding a fierce beauty to her.
She laid her eyes on Andrew and he shivered. He'd seen that look before, in every single Covenant species eyes. "You have insulted me and my friends, this cannot be allowed!" she yelled as she leapt forward. Seeing they only had seconds to move, Andrew shoved Mizore out of the way and threw himself away as well. Inner Moka executed her signature kick and pulverized the rock. She turned her gaze to the ODST as he stood with Mizore. "I'm impressed, most would have been hit by my attack." she said calmly. "You don't live through what I have without learning a few things." Andrew retorted.
He turned to Mizore "Go, I'll hold them off." he said. She shook her head "No, I don't want to lose you." she said. "GO!" Andrew yelled and turned back to Moka leveling his SMG and firing. Mizore took another look at Andrew and ran for the woods, stopping when she arrived at a large tree and turning to look back. Andrew was in bad straights, his wounds were slowing him down while nothing of the sort was affecting his opponent. He'd managed to get off another burst when the blue haired one literally flew at him and sliced the SMG into pieces with her finger nails. She landed next to Moka and gave a nod to the other woman. Andrew's motion tracker then told him that something was coming at him from behind and he dropped to the ground as a golden wash basin flew over his head. He then turned his head and saw the little one with a star shaped stick in her hand and waving it around as if she was controlling the wash basin.
Which Yukari was, she was using it to give her friends cover while they dealt with Andrew. He leapt back to his feet and drew the energy sword from his hip and sliced the basin in half. Inner Moka stood and cocked an eyebrow in surprise. "Your cheap parlor tricks won't work on me Covenant witch." he said to Yukari. "Then try this on for size!" yelled Kurumu. She flew at him claws extended and sliced across his face before he could bring his sword up to defend himself. He pulled off the now ruined helmet and threw it to the ground and surprised everyone even Inner Moka. He wasn't much older than they were, though he had some nasty scars on his face including four new ones from Kurumu. He had piercing green eyes and chestnut hair that was close cropped to his head. "You're good, for a Covenant fucker." he said to Kurumu who flushed. "I don't know what this Covenant is but I think it's time for you… TO LEARN YOUR PLACE!" yelled Inner Moka as she brought her leg up to kick Andrew. He was too slow after the attack from Kurumu and his previous injuries to even attempt to dodge the attack.
Moka's attack caught him squarely in the chest and sickening cracks could be heard as he flew into the tree Mizore was hiding behind. 'Damn, shattered rib cage, punctured lung, ruptured spleen, busted stomach, and at least six cracked vertebrate.' he thought. Everyone was surprised when they heard the cracks come from Andrew. Inner Moka was the most surprised, as she had never heard that many cracks from any of her other victims. Mizore rushed out with a scream and threw herself in front of him and changing her hands to ice claws. "Please stop!" she cried through tears. "He was only doing that to protect me!" she screamed. She started when she felt a hand on her shoulder. She turned and saw Andrew start to stand. "Unfortunately, I do know my place." he said coughing up blood. He looked into Moka's eyes "It's between you and her." he said as he stepped in front of Mizore.
As he took another step he fell to one knee and coughed up more blood. He then fell fully to the ground and Mizore fell on top of him. She rolled him over so that he was on his back. He looked up at her and gave her a sad smile. "Sorry I couldn't protect you." he said. "No, no, no you did fine just stay with me." she said back. He gave her an even sadder smile as he closed his eyes. Mizore sat there for a moment then looked at the gathered group. They all recoiled, except Moka, from her gaze. "If he dies I'll kill you all." she said simply.
Author's Note: Finally, I got this damn chapter up. To those of you who haven't figured it out yet this is a small off shoot from my Halo-Star Wars cross. Ok so Andrew is 18, he joined the UNSC at 15 when his planet was glassed by the Covenant. I know that's young but he was adamant and they relented because the UNSC needed as many personnel as they could get their hands on. I'm not quite sure I handled the fight between the girls and Andrew correctly, though it is 12:12 am when I finished this and I just want to get it up. So yeah, I'm going to alternate between this story and my other one. So expect an update to The Rising Storm next. Review as you see fit.
