42. More of Hope

That was one sight which brought the positivity back to the scene. There was the machine that looked like a space ship, or rather a hybrid having the hovercraft elements too. Completely black in colour, it was part square and part spherical, and there were two seats inside it, visible through the windows which were also round. The wings of the machine extended towards both sides twisting in between. There were no levers or steering inside the machine, but there was a screen which showed nothing other than the message that said “Screen Locked”. It seemed to be the best scene that could be part of their eyes. There was something that could make a difference.

“Do you think that this thing can fly or at least run? Do you think that they kept it here because it is faulty?” asked V221KA while looking outside at the sea.

“I don’t think that we can be sure about it. There will be a lot of risk involved even if we manage to get it started. We are not trained for this” said C1RC221 as she looked around for some information about it.

“You mean to say that we can crash and just die. We can end up in the depths of the sea or burn to death on this island itself” wondered V221KA.

“Yes, it is rather an easy thing to understand, isn’t it?” asked C1RC221.

“There is still a chance that we might get off this island, and even if we crash in water, there will be safety measures in the ship”.

“Only if we can access them, right?” asked C1RC221.

“Lets go in and check then. It is pointless to waste our time doing nothing. What lies ahead of us is enormous”.

“Okay, in case there is the option for auto-pilot, something can be done”.

They got inside the machine and with a welcome sign, the screen automatically got enabled. There was the manufacturing date and name of the model displayed there on the top. It showed a map of the island with their location highlighted as a triangle in red. There were arrows towards all direction with the names of some locations unknown to them. A red button was glowing with the writing, ‘Begin here’.

“I didn’t know that this one came with an instruction manual. I wonder if they add the next steps too, unless this is full auto-pilot towards these destinations. Well, any place which is not this island should be a fine option for me” remarked C1RC221.

“Well, you really can’t avoid the positives here, can you? Haven’t we been negative for so long?” asked V221KA.

After having a quick look around, she pressed the button after touching one of the locations outside the island and the doors of the machine closed. There was the sound of the engine charging and starting to work. It felt as if it wasn’t used for a very long time. The machine started jerking and took a turn to go out into the sea. Suddenly, the alarms were triggered, and a screaming sound was heard. The machine started moving as a hovercraft over the sea, and the outposts began searching for the origin of the alarm.

“This doesn’t sound good, but at least we are out of there. Every moment there was nothing less than torture” remarked a relieved C1RC221.

“Yes, it is not done yet, but we are on our way” added V221KA.

One of the lights from an outpost caught hold of the machine in its path, and it remained on the spotlight as all lights converged on it. They could hear announcements about a lost scouting machine and missing prisoners. They pushed the button which had the picture of a video camera, and by pressing the zoom button on one of them, they could view a number of armed machines taking off from the launching pads on the sides of the outposts.

“We are about to be hunted! We are going to be brought down!” exclaimed a worried C1RC221.

“Find some of the useful buttons. We have come this far, and there has to be way out of here too. Maybe there will be some weapons in here” said V221KA.

“Didn’t you hear the announcement? This is a scouting machine. The purpose was always to seek and find, not to engage” yelled C1RC221.

“Maybe it is. But scouts also keep the basic weapons in case there is some kind of emergency. Or maybe they are announcing the same to confuse us. We have to keep looking through all the options available on the screen. Maybe it is hidden further inside so that it can’t be accessed by everyone” said V221KA.

“No, not that way, that is the wrong option. You shouldn’t do that” screamed C1RC221.

“I think I know what is to be done here. This option actually looks good” replied V221KA.

With one press of a button, the ship stopped for a second in mid-air, and dived deep into the sea. It kept going underwater, and stopped at a point from where it began to move straight forward. The purusuing machines reached the location on which the machine was last seen over water. They wandered around the place and kept sending information to the outposts which were passed on to the base.

“Well, told you so” said a proud V221KA.

“You have a fine amount of luck with you, I think” said C1RC221.

34. Cry for War

Christian spent some time in prayer after Circeei had left the room. He always had the doubts about how to pray at a place where there was nothing to remind him of God, but he managed as he was good with that. He hoped that he would have some vision, but nothing really happened. There were long discussions going on outside the building. A lot of people had gathered around some men and women who were standing on a stage. Circeei was leading the discussions, and she was showing a chart which had the picture of something which resembled a building looking like a space ship. There was also another black board on the side on which a few numbers were written, and a spot-light was fixed on the chart as well as and the board. Christian decided to go out and have a detailed look to see what is happening and what all decisions have been made.

“We will attack from this area” she said. “Our people will enter from here, and go through these points which have guards until we reach this centre point. The guards won’t have that much of weapons because they are not expecting attacks, surely not of this big scale. They have only planned to attack us, with the focus only on attacking and not defending. According to the program designed for them, the space ship of theirs was never a place for defence, which was why you were able to get into it earlier too. If they plan to strengthen the defence after our last attack, that would also require time for the materials to arrive from Earth” she continued.

“But are you sure that the door can be breached? When we attacked the place to free you, went right through the guards when the doors were open, and stopped it from being closed until we were back. Most of their experienced fighters were also in the room with you not prepared for battle. This time, we have to go through the door and them. Can we do that?” the man with the long beard asked her.

“Yes, we will use their own weapons against them. We will also concentrate on one spot only in the beginning which will make things easier. After getting inside, we will immediately split into different teams every moment we see more than one path, until any of our teams are reduced to four from which there will be no split” she added.

“Shouldn’t we be going through in bigger groups maintaining our firepower because we can’t be sure what these people will do? That way, can’t we make sure that we can take down more of them along with losing less of our own?” asked another.

“I have been there, and I am pretty much aware of what can happen and what they are capable of. We should stick to this plan, and use all the soldiers that we can get so that they can spread further” she said.

“It is a risk. A few of our teams can be in real trouble considering the fact that these people are well adjusted to their environment inside the space ship. They can use it to their advantage, and may be eliminate some of our teams” said a man with bald head.

“Yes, they are well adjusted, but we are already trained for what they can come up with. We are also well-trained super soldiers from Earth. We can take a lot of things which they bring to us. There will be causalities, but the number won’t be that big. Be assured about that” she made it clear.

“So, all of the youth will go? Those from that age bar which has just been recently brought down as the new level of adulthood?” a lady asked.

“Yes, all of them. All male and female with no exception other than those in charge of base operations. There are no exceptions in this case” Circeei confirmed.

“So, we will attack at tomorrow midnight, unless they attack us before that” someone said.

“We have kept scouts around their place to know if someone is coming our or going in. According to that, we can change our plan to defence or attack. We will be ready for any possible scenario. A backup plan will be set here with automated machines. They are not completely hacked and ready for operation. But our technicians have assured us that things will be perfect in a few hours, from which we will be battle ready” she said.

“It is decided then. There is nothing else to add to the plan” a girl said.

“Yes, it is. You can all leave now. Make all the personal preparation which you will need for the big battle. You need to be sure that you are at your best, because this is the day we will write our future” Circeei said.

As the people started leaving, Christian reached the stage where the program was happening. Circeei had loaded the black board and the chart into a big box which was given to a kid who went away into a building with the items.

“Yes, Christian. I hope you are ready for war. This might be the only war you will have to fight with us” she said.

“Everything is clearly planned and ready? A big attack is around the corner?” he asked.

“Yes, the plans are already made and the equipment are prepared. We just need to attack now. We will control that machine and that will be all. They won’t be coming to bother us at this part of the planet for some time because it will make them doubtful about their chances of success. By the time they will come up with better scouts and troops, we will be even better prepared” she said.

“So, a lot of people will die in just one day. There will be so much of blood here” he said.

“Yes, death will have a feast during those few hours, and after that, nobody will have to die around here, for a very long time” she added.
