All of the crew sat around campfires eating
trailmix of some cooked canned food. Mathio was sitting by himself at a
a small oak tree. He walked to his jet, and puled out his backpack and
guns. he walked back to the campsite.
He unzipped his
backpack and pulled out a beer. He untwisted the cap and took a sip. One
of his recruits named lars came over and sat down next
Luthas was my best friend, you know." He
sighed. "I'm going to kill all of those goddarn mortal launcher
people. I am."
Mathio gave him a hard stare, and said,"No.
You''re not. You are going to kill those people for our country and
because of your best friend. You got that?" Lars walked away and
nodded. Mathio took another sip of beer, and dozed off. the rest
of Mathio's recruits fell asleep with another hour.
Lithius, the leader of Lithia, knew of the
intruders presence. he could see
the smoke of the fires from his balcony. He smiled and thought,Come on.
We'll be ready for yer. Lithius walked inside and told his
armies what the plan was.
Mathio awoke next morning, not next to his oak
tree, but hanging on a wall, chained up. he struggled, but
it was no use. He inspected the chains, and they were metal. He looked
in his pockets to see if they left his laser. They did. he
jumped with his chains.
The laser pin jiggled. He made an effort, and
jumped again. The laser flew up in the air. Mathio reached
his head over and caught it with his teeth. he aimed his head at the
chains and pressed his teeth down hard at the buton, praying
that he would not miss. He didn't.
The beam struck the metal and went right thru it,
melting away the metal. The chain on his left
hand snapped off. He grabbed the laser with his left hand and melted
away all his chains. He grabbed one of the chains and began
slamming the wall with it.
A guard heard the commotion, and walked over to
Mathio's cell. he looked inside the 1 inch thick glass,
but he couldn't see anyone. He unlocked the door and walked in. Mathio
waited behind the door. When he saw the guard come in, he
aimed the laser and it went right thru the guard's head.
Mathio took the guards phaser and walked into the
hallway. Mathio wandered
around the hallways and found out he was in Lithia's prison. He found
more cells and checked them for his people. No such luck.
strode off in an opposite direction, searching for his comrades. he
wandered down the hall and ran into two guards. He didn't want to
stir up the whole prison so he ran at them and starngled one and snapped
the other one's neck. he took their clips and continued the
search. he finally found them. They were all in one room, chained to the
wall, with a guard watching them.
Mathio kicked the door
open and blew the guard away. he used his laser to melt the chains of
his friends, and then they all left the room.
Mathio and his
friends stormed thru the hallways, killing guards and releasing innocent
people who had been imprisoned.They finally found the exit.
When he opened the door, Mathio and his friends
were ambushed by lithius and 30 of his men. Mathio told the others to
scout the hallways
and pick up clips and weapons from dead guards. All of the soldiers set
off except for Mathio. He would jump out of the prison and attack
Lithiu's small force came when they weren't
expecting it. Finally his men arrived. Tehy were all armed to the teeth.
Mathio counted down to 1.
"CHHHAAARRRRGGGEEEE!!" His force
leapt out of the building and stormed over Luthiu's force easily. In 5
minutes all of Luthiu's men were dead,
and Luthius surrendered. The battle of Lithia was over.
Afterward, Mathio ordered Lars to take Lithius to
the Bavarian prison.
The city of Bavaria was being repaired, and the
evil emperor was no longer
a threat. The legends of Mathio live on.......
