-Bob practically screamed. The lights went out of his host's eyes. There was a flash as a ball of light shot from the host's chest towards the skull. It might be pertinent to note that Bob had, at some point or another, angered Queen Mab of the Sidhe. The whole reason he didn't mind servitude was that it made it impossible for Mab to get payback. Psi had appeared to him as one of the Sidhe, and teal was a colour of the Winter Court, which Mab ruled over-

Raz dug through his backpack and produced what appeared to be a small door. He observed it, using his finger to open and close it. "Haven't used this in a while." He turned to the group. "I'm going to astral project, see if I can help him from the inside. Wish me luck." He strapped on his goggles and tossed the door at Narumi's forehead. The door landed on the detective's forehead and opened, revealing a swirling green portal. He turned and saluted the group, before jumping through the gateway, closing it behind him.
The ship's going down. The aliens are going to die. In a fantastic explosion, no less. This turn of events isn't relatively bad. Certainly annoying, but at least the objective was complete. Her's, at any rate.
Hmm... Yuuka watched the scene unfolding before everyone. Two Covenant Battle Cruisers, diving an unstoppable path of death into the once-magnificent human city. The hole in her shoulder nor the damage to her parasol had been healed. She looked down, The humans are still down there, and smiled. A look of doubt flashed over her face for a moment, Blink? but she recovered quickly, only for her smile to grow even larger.
The Phantom roared away from the Light of Absolution at full speed, aiming to put as much distance between her and the plummeting cruiser as possible before it made impact. Behind them, the Absolution and the Justice streaked down towards the city of New Alexandria, trailing smoke, plasma vapour and debris as the tiny flares of additional explosions continued to blossom across their length and breadth.
The bow of the Absolution struck a conglomeration of skyscrapers head-on and smashed through them, scattering debris and wreckage everywhere and filling the air with shattered glass, plasteel fibre and dust as it continued to plow through the cityscape, its own superstructure dwindling under repeated impacts from buildings of every sort as it gouged a furrow several miles in length across the urban sprawl. More explosions flared as buildings toppled and collapsed, unable to support themselves after the ship's violent passage had gouged enormous chunks from their sides, blanketing the streets and pedways in a choking wall of dust and smoke for miles around the devastation.
What remained of the Absolution came to a shrieking, screaming halt as it reached the edge of New Alexandria and plunged bowfirst into Alexander Bay, the sudden immersion of its superheated hull into the cool waters causing it to hiss and boil. Its momentum thus arrested, the cruiser pitched into the steaming pool and began to sink, its vast length taking a long time to vanish.
The Justice, by contrast, simply came crashing down on the city in two pieces. It left a pair of smouldering craters a mile across in two impact sites three miles from one another, levelling buildings in all directions.
New Alexandria choked under a vast blanket of grit, smoke, dust and plasma vapour that seemed to engulf the entire city.
It is quite simply the most entertaining game in the universe... nothing else can match it. It also allows you to get lots of valuable data.
"That was a close one..." muttered Craft, holding onto a nearby support.

In Narumi's mind, Raz can see two people inside a building, one was Narumi, the other was young, and was wearing a loose fitting suit and shorts. "The Child of Fate?" The person said, looking at the map with a flash light. "Yeah, a young man who carries with him everything on the Earth. The enemy is drawing out his power on this island and using it for villainy. The client said for us to save him." Narumi said. "Hey, I want to help too." The other person said. "That would be help from half a man. Listen, Shotaro, obey my orders without fail." Narumi said. "Even here, the same lecture as always..." Shotaro said, attempting to leave. Narumi stops him. "It is because we are in a place like this." Narumi said. "I get it. I get it. It's a promise." Shotaro said. Narumi then noticed Raz. "Hey... who are you?" Narumi said, staring at Raz.

Everyone was gathered back in the room where Jorge met Noble Team. The evacuation process went smoothly, surprisingly enough. There were very few Banshees present in the sky. It was likely that most of them retreated to assist the cruisers. The civilians went first, then the soldiers. Finally, only Noble Team and the Champions with Jorge were left.
A Pelican arrived, hovering right outside the open window. Carter was about to board it, when a massive earthquake knocked everyone off their feet. When the group managed to stand back up, they watched in horror as one half of the Justice came smashing through several skyscrapers. It was speeding in their direction.
"EVERYONE INSIDE! NOW!" Carter bellowed. Jorge and his Spartan comrades proceeded to board the Pelican as fast as humanly (or in their case, superhumanly) possible.
"We're all here! Go! Let's get the fuck outta here!" Emile shouted.
"Right! Strap yourselves in, guys! This is gonna be rough!" The Pelican's pilot responded. The transport sped away from Olympic Tower in a steep climb, desperately attempting to escape the carnage. Luckily, by the time the Justice reached their old position, they were a fair distance away from it. It plowed into ONI HQ, causing the massive tower to crumble like a simple stack of bricks.
As they saw the extent of the damage caused by the fallen Battlecruisers, Noble stayed silent, save for two words uttered by the normally silent Noble Six.
Rey had managed to get the woman he was carrying onto the ship with the others, and had swiftly made his way back through to find Jorge and the others. He was now settled in the corner of the ship, trying to catch his breath. He glanced up to Mal-Keshar. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. I've been in a few dozen earthquakes in my life, it was about like that, with less fire." He blew out a breath, looking towards the front of the transport, then carefully shifted to set the woman on the ground, getting to his feet. "Now what?"
