It was almost time. The Battle of Earth was in full swing now, and every stop had been pulled. Humanity's last stand was underway. A shredded, burning navy hung in atmosphere above Earth, like a dark omen for the bloodier assault to take place on the ground below. The United Nations Space Command has dispatched a ship to quell the alien threat, however, now it hangs in low orbit, prepared to deploy hundreds of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.
Sky was tired of this. Her homes were always destroyed. Kholo. Miridem. Tribute. She'd joined the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers now because of that. The Covenant had changed her life for the worst. She prepared with her squad to deploy into the already war ridden New Mombasa. She looked to her left at a girl with blonde hair.
"Hey... Is this your first drop?" Sky asked.
"Y-yeah..." She replied.
"This is my second... You nervous?" Sky asked.
"Yeah..." She replied.
"The name's Sky... I'll have your back." Sky responded.
"I'm Grace, n-nice to meet you..." Grace said, shaking her hand awkwardly as she put on her gauntlets.
"Nice to meet you, Grace." Sky smiled.
