"We're pinned down....need evac......." the static filled transmission ran through Spartan 000's helmet. She had gotten her team back and were retreating the area. Charges had been set for the oncomming covenant forces as a last surprise attack to slow them down for the pelican drop ships to come in for pick up.
"How far in is that team?" she asked, her tone flat.
"One klick" said a Marine jogging beside the Spartan.
The black armored soldier slowed her pace to a stop and turned looking back. The Marine slowed to a stop watching the Spartan.
"The charges will be going off any minute, we cant get back up to them in time....they're stuck...." he said a deep sadness in his voice.
"You save me a seat?" she said looking over her shoulder.
"Of course ma'am" he said with a smirk.
"See you in a few..." she concluded as her boots dug deep into the ground, launching her forward with incredible speed. Setting a marker on her HUD display of the other team she sprinted in their direction. Watching the timer in the corner of her visor of the charges, she might make it to them before they went off.
"Ares squad this is Spartan 000. A diversion is being setup for your evac. At my signal break for it and head to the evac zone." she said in between breaths, running with all she had. A static reply was all she got for comfirmation.
It took less than a minute to come up near the team. They were indead pinned down with heavy fire. Drawing the assault rifle on her back she broke from her cover opening fire on the covenant forces.
"Now!" she called to Ares squad rushing past them towards the covenant, drawing the enemies fire. The squad jumped up and with everything they had to get clear of the fire. Watching their signals on her helmet screen Jessica continued firing, keeping the covies attentions.
"We're clear!" the leader of that squad called over his comm.
Her gun clicking empty and glancing up to check the time on the charges.
"Shit.." she muttered under breath, dropping her gun and turning to run. Explosions echoed around her. Screams from the covenant rose in surprise at the charges now detonating.
"Go! Go! Go!" she called to the sqaud seeing them ahead of her turning and running back trying to reach the safe distance. The whistle of Banshees inbound screeched through the air. She was almost there, and gaining on the squad quickly. A concusion from a charge going off just to her right sent cracks scattering across her visor, her shields trying to block most the impack. Shrapnel bounced off her shield draining them quickly. A larger piece of the charge shooting out and busting through her sheilds, tearing across her mid section. A warning comming up on her helmet, barely visible through the damage, alerting her of the wound she hardly felt through the adrenaline. Running through the the heat blast she continued without a wince. Jogging now along side the team as they headed to the pelicans, she glanced back as seeing a pelican open fire behind them. The charges had indeed stopped the covenant temporarily and the banshees now fell in great balls of flames from the pelicans fire. Jumping onboard one of the pelicans she walked up casually and patted a marine on the shoulder.
"Thanks for saving my spot..."
