I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day
Heroes - David Bowie

"Wait," Resika pulled away instinctively. Her lips felt numb as she turned away.

"I'm sorry,"

"No, I'm sorry. This is my fault," Resika smoothed his hair with her hand. She tilted her head to the side and leaned into his lips again.


"Hey, there's a Firetail out here. Oop, I just landed on him. Going for tackle," After a bit of silence Hallan's voice came through again, "Tackled, ooh wow, I think I can take him alone,"

"You sure you don't want help?" Persephone's voice broke through the gunfire.

"No I think," Another pause, this time longer, "I've got him,"

"Nice job!" The rest of comms lit up with laughter.

Hallan smiled.


"This is so wrong," Resika giggled.

"I know,"

"Again?" She asked.



"Rupture tackled," Hallan sounded off in comms again.

"On my way," Persephone answered again.

"Oh he's got a Neut, this is going to be a short battle,"

"I'm getting there,"

"Ok, Hobgoblin's are out,"

"First Hob is down, working on second,"

"Ok Hallan, he's tackled,"

"Good Perseph, lets keep on these drones,"

"Roger that," she answered, "Hal that was my drone,"

"Sorry," Hallan offered back, "If you need to take off point, let me know, his Neuting has slowed down,"

"Good, my MWD is really killing my Cap. Oh crap, tell me you have point,"

"On now, thanks,"

"No problem,"

The two frigates orbited the larger cruiser swiftly. It tried in vain over the next few minutes to shake it's dogged killers, but it died just the same.

"Get the pod," Came a cry from Hallan.

"Missed it," Persephone replied.

"Ahh well, lets get the loot,"

"What was that you said about this being short?"


"So, what do we do now?" Resika stroked his hair lazily.

"I... I'm not sure," Korvan replied.
