Twisted Thoughts : Never Turn Back.. Part 1

Author's Note : Yes, it's Rome in the future. Enjoy! How are you all? I hope everything has been going on well and life's treating you good too. Here's another Twisted Thought story for you. Just that this week I am very into Rome and its famous commander Julius Caesar. Have a good read.
'It's not what you think', he looked down to the wasted city below. 'It has been many years, the war had taken it's toll and we are the only ones left, Caesar', Marcus stood behind and stared out to the sky above. 'Yes, the war had been devastating to both sides but I believe in my heart she still stood there outside', Caesar looked at his own reflection on the glass panel. 'If I have not left her behind,' he touched the glass panel on the observatory deck. The Tenth Expeditionary Legion commanded by Caesar had been exploring the waste city for two weeks and nothing unusual had been reported by Scout Officers. 'If this mission goes on for another week without any action I am going to go crazy', Marcus flicking his cigar on top of the ashtray and sucking it hard again. Caesar stood still and said nothing at all as he stared out of the observatory deck.

'Orders are orders and the legion is to serve the Senate', murmured Marcus to himself trying to mock his companion. Legionary Septimus walked into the observatory deck and gave his salute to Caesar and Marcus, 'Your order, Sir'. Caesar hesitated before he turned around to look hard at Marcus, 'I am going down there one more time'. 'Are you crazy, we do not know what we have down there!', Marcus stood up. 'I'd have this feeling she is there', Caesar gripped his commanding staff so hard that his knuckle turned white. 'The last time you went down, you nearly got kill! I am not going to let you go down anymore', Marcus was about to turn to standing by legionary Caesar had walked out of the observatory deck. 'Send 20 Legionaries with him. For GOD sake!', and the legionary saluted again and hurried out with his latest orders. 

At the deployment bay, 20 high ranking Tristi Legionaries of The Tenth was getting ready to march into the Legionary Shuttle. 'Sir, your Legionaries are ready', Legionary Septimus reported to Caesar who is ready to enter into wasteland. Suddenly, a radio officer came running in and shouted, 'LF (Life Forms) detected at sector 270, just 5 km from where you are landing, Sir!'. 'Go!', Caesar shouted to his legionaries. The Personnel Legionary Shuttle closed it's bay doors, it's engine began to roar and took off. It flew out of the deployment bay and into the dark skies. 

'Sir, will there be any fight with this ULF (Unknown Life Forms)?', Legionary Septimus stood by his commander's side as the shuttle sped through the clouds and begining to make it's descend as it gets nearer to the wasteland. 'We never know until they start shooting at us. Stay vigilante at all times', Caesar examining his gear and he had wished that every time he goes down there he had an answer to it. 'Septimus, how does it feel that your love one went missing and not found?', a fear that he had always wished that it will go away although the war had ended. 'Sir, I never will understand how it feels. My wife is doesn't approve me in the Legionary', he tried to smile at his commanding officer. The big black bird that is carrying the legionaries begin to slow its flight. 'Designated point in 5 minutes', it beep to it body contents. 'Men, get ready', shouted Septimus. Each of the legionaries immediately make their way to their own personnel deployment unit. As each legionary stood in the unit, the bird begin to prepare to spit them out to the landing zone. 'Deployment in 5 seconds,' the bird begin to count. 

'Release Activated', the shuttle holds down its throttle and open it personnel deployment hatch and spill out its occupants. All the legionaries were begining sent down and before the legionaries could touch the ground with their feet somewhere had already begin firing at the bird and at them. 'Sir, gun fire!', cried Septimus. 'Armed and shoot to kill!', Caesar replied back. Before the bird could unleash all of its legionaries, a stray rocket had blasted through its hull and killing its pilots. The bird begin to lose its altitude and slowly nose dived and hit the ground. Five of the unfortunate legionaries went down with the bird. 'Damn! They are everywhere!', Septimus is now having a rough time trying to pin point where are the enemies located. The shooting seems to be coming from everywhere. 'Formation Legions!', shouted Caesar. With all their shields held up right and their body begin to move closer to each other to form a mini defensive wall over themselves. 'March, slow, shoot and Aries report to Mother Ship!', Caesar shouted again as gunfire begin to get louder and louder. 'Forward on!', cried Septimus. Suddenly, they heard a lot of weird shouts and they could hear a lot of footsteps running. 'Sir, I detected two groups of ULF running at our direction!', reported Aries. 'Boys, brace and kill', ordered Caesar. 

'Good lord, they are human!', said one of the legions beside Caesar's left side. 'Sir, you really want us to take them down!', another legion asked Caesar. 'Shoot blue flare, Septimus, quick!', as Caesar finished his orders, Septimus had already had the blue flare gun and shot up into the sky. 'They are still charging at us, Sir!', another cried. 'Wait, hold on, they don't look human now, shit!', another legionary held strongly to his shield. 'Its the Dark Forms!', yelled Septimus. They were getting nearer to the legionaries now. 'Impact in 10 seconds!', Aries shouted and every legionary begin to draw their swords and pray hard.

Meanwhile in the Expeditionary Mother Ship, Marcus was tied back and his mouth gagged and left alone in the prison cell. 'Good, let the Dark Forms devour Caesar once and for all', Sulla sneered at the latest update from his scout. 'We are taking this ship and we will see from very far away', he laughed and walked out of the prison cell. 'What about the whole Tenth Legionaries?', as Sulla walked out Antonidus asked his General about the remaining team in the Mother Ship. 'Kill them all!', was the last words Marcus heard when his room went black.
