The third patient legs were entirely crushed, bleediing profusely. At this point his only choice was tourniquets on both legs. He knew most likely upon arrival they most likely would have to amputate as their damage was quite severe. Quickly advising his second of the damage he then handed the patients over to his second aboard the chopper. As he did so they came under fire.
The pilot trying tio take off to save the patients had to make an emergency take off leaving Xavier in the dust…behind.

She looked for Rabbit and Clarissa and didn’t see her commander anywhere, but she did see Rabbit take down a Terminator with nothing but the knife in his hands. And this was after he took bulletfire point blank range.
“ASH! RABBIT DOWN!” she shouted.
“I GOT THIS! GO!” he called back. She took a few deep breaths, readied her weapon and came out of her cover. She was spotted immediately of course and came under some heavy fire. Laser blast caught her across the forearm and she hissed in pain.
“FUCKER!” she snarled, returning fire as she ran to Rabbit’s side. His eyes were closed and he was bleeding heavily. She checked his pulse. It was reedy and slow, but it was there. She pulled out her radio.
“THIS IS ECHO 10 TO ECHO BASE! I NEED IMMEDIATE EVAC AT THESE COORDS STAT! RABBIT IS DOWN! I REPEAT, RABBIT IS DOWN! OVER!”
“ECHO BASE TO ECHO TEN, WE HAVE YOU LOCKED IN AND WILL BE ARRIVING IN 5! COPY!”
“ROGER THAT, ECHO BASE! ECHO TEN OUT!” she reholstered her radio and checked around her for mechanical enemies. Looked as if the surviving team members were thinning them out. “Hang in there, sir. Help’s on the way.” she urged. “Ash! Get over here!” She no longer had to shout to be heard as the last few Terminators were blown apart. She pulled out her field kit and ripped open Rabbit’s jacket to see how severe his wounds were. Her brother was at her side in an instant. There was a large gash at his temple that was bleeding profusely. “You okay?”
“Yeah. Caught a piece of rock to the head when I blew out one hiding behind a door. Another scar for the ladies to check out.” He waggled his eyebrows. She snorted before getting back to work. “How bad is it?”
“He took it point blank range.” She pulled out some bandages and gauze. “Press these down hard then help me wrap them. I can’t get the slugs out and he’s going to need medical attention ASAP.” Asher nodded and followed his sister’s orders and between the two of them, they got Rabbit’s wounds covered. “Have you seen Commander Grant?” she asked him.
“Not since we disembarked. Want me to look around?”
“Yeah. Just in case.”
“You got it, sis.”

She leaps up onto its back treads, making a grab for the back section, just as it senses being hit by something small like a human. Swinging its body around, she takes out an EMT destabilizer and attaches it to the tank, as it starts to shudder violently and then seize up; its treads coming to a complete stop. Working quickly, she uses her knife, to snap off the back panel on the dead of the tank, and quickly rewires the machine as its paused. With the correct wires in place, she snaps the lid back down and rips off the EMT destablizer and it soon powers up again. It’s lights power up a different colour and Clarissa jumps down off the back, as she watches it open fire…on its own. This gives her the chance she needs, to at least make it back to Rabbit and the others, as the new suicide Tank goes on its own mission, clearing the way for her.
Seeing Ash up ahead, looking for her, she races over between the laser fire, and then dives behind a burning car. “Where’s Rabbit? And what happened to your head?”

“Rock to the head, Ma’am. I’m right as rain. The Commander was hit bad, Aleksis is tending to him now. Medvac is on its way in, so we should head over.” Ash answered. His weapon came up and he shot a Terminator that was coming up behind Clarissa. “Most of the troops are dead and we have a shit-ton of injured, including The Commander. Lost a couple of medvacs in the process. Fucking machines.” he scowled, kicking at the head of the one he shot. There was a slight twitch and he shot it once more before the light went dead in the cybernetic eye. The machines numbers were nearly non-existent and it was safe to be out in the open. “He’s this way, Ma’am.” Ash lead her in the direction of where he’d left his sister.
The Medvac had arrived and two soldiers were loading Rabbit inside.
Once everyone was secure, they headed back to base.
Though Ash thought the injury may well have looked superficial, Clarissa knew that a strike to the head could lead to further complications, so it was a good thing the Medivac was on its way in. Crossing over to where Aleksis was tending to her Commander, Clarissa was shocked by the state of his injuries. It wasn’t till he leaned on her and spoke, that she felt the warmth of his blood seep from his injuries onto her hand and skin.
“Clarissa i want you to take the remaining members of the squad and board the next Medivac out with me its time we got out of here and figured out how the fuck the machines ambushed us…I don’t want to lose more then I already have if i have anything to say about it…”
Feeling his slump against her after issuing the orders, she got him into a good lock hold and started to drag/walk him towards the medivac that was landing just a short distance away. It was hard going and her fear that he will bleed out before they reached the craft was really getting to her. Clarissa yelled back at the remaining squad, in particular, Ash and Aleksis.
“We getting out. Order retreat, get your asses on that medivac. Get moving!” she barked, as Ezekiel collapsed to the ground and two other medics came from the medivac and helped him up. Clarissa kept her gun trained now on any possible machines that were going to try and attack as the squad made a run for it. The entire operation had been a shambles right from the word go, and there were bound to be a lot of questions when they made it back to base. Most importantly how did the machines know they were going to be checking that spot in the city?
With everyone getting aboard, Clarissa was one of the last to board, only when she knew everyone was on safely, and the medivac could take off finally, and ferry the injured and dying to safety.
Back at base, the wait to see if the Commander would pull through his emergency operation had Clarissa walking the halls, pacing back and forth, her eyes darting up to the clock, that seemed today to be going really slow. Why is that? When you are in a rush, time speeds and then when you are waiting for something, it goes so slow. Finally she headed down to his room, to wait for him there, hoping…praying he made it.
Looking up as she stood outside his door, she heard the din of his footfalls, and her face brightened, before she stood to attention and saluted.
“Commander…you are a sight for sore eyes. Should you even be walking around?” Her voice riddled with concern.

“A while now, Sir…few years.” Clarissa answered her eyes questioning where he was going with this. Perhaps the near death experience had left him looking at his life, and what he planned to do with it. Clarissa followed him into his office and listened to him speak or reminisce on how they had met, and how he had watched her grow over time and become a stellar Commander. This had her show a blush to her cheeks, and she looked away for a moment, unsure about these feelings.
But looking back at him, focusing with her green eyes, it would seem he was not finished. He had a confession and one that even would take her by complete surprise.
“I love you Clarissa and I want you at my side. If you would agree to the promotion and allow me to court you I would be most pleased.”
Clarissa blinked, hearing this coming from her Commanding officer. He loved her. She let a gasp escape her lips, trying to take in what he had just said. Not only did he want her by his side, he wanted…her. Ezekiel waited, and then sat himself down behind his desk, with his boots propped up on the top of the desk. Suddenly, a smile crept to her lips, and she said simply.
“I thought you would never ask to court me. Yes…yes you may.” She leaned against the wall, and chewed her bottom lip.“I’m too shocked to sit…Ezekiel.”

The doctor wanted to sedate him so the wound could be treated and Ash had a fit.
He was squaring off with the medical team when Aleksis found him a short time later.
“…you are not sticking me with any fucking needles!” Ash growled, looking ridiculous in a hospital johnny with his ass hanging in the breeze. He had yet to see his sister, who was behind him and out of view. Snatching the syringe from the medic, she calmly walked up behind her brother and stuck the needle in his asscheek, depressing the needle as she did.
“What the fuu–!” he stated, turning toward her just as the sedative took effect. She caught him in her arms as he fell forward and easily got him onto the bed.
The medical team were all looking at her in shock.
“Nothing to it.” she shrugged. “Call me when he wakes up because he’s going to be pissed.” she smirked, leaving the room once more. She headed to their shared quarters to clean up and to treat her own wounds.
Trauma did have those funny moments especially when dealing with the delerious.
He was lucky all he was suffering was gonna be a lil wounded pride as a needle was jabbed in his ass.
Luckily he had more to do with handling the service of his arm. Moving the bodies out of the wreckage seemed like easy work.
Only because he was able to lift so much weight, and now his arm was in real need of repair.
He headed to the back of the unit working with a technical repair unit and the nanobites to begin fixing the arm slowly.
As they spread into his arm he was able to fix its mechanism. The arm once again becoming whole.
He would need it before long they had much more work to do saving lives.
“Thank for this chance Clarissa. I won’t let you down as you have yet to let me down.”
“Goes ditto for me, Commander…or should I call you Eze?” Clarissa said, a warmth in her smile and a twinkle in her eyes. This moment wouldn’t last forever, but she was going to treasure it. Watching him change out of his blood stained clothes, into something cleaner, she couldn’t take her eyes off the scars and stitches that riddled his chest and back. He looked like a stitch doll…well a GI Joe version. She tried to hide her smug look when he caught her staring.
“Don’t think I saw your eyes wandering my chest Clarissa dearest…”
“Can you blame a girl?” She answered and pushed herself free of the wall, readying herself to face the others in her squad. Questions were going to be raised to what happened out there, and the first port of call, should be the med unit.
“Yes?” she smirked.
“You stuck a needle in my ass.”
“More like ‘jammed’ a needle in your ass, but that’s semantics.” she shrugged.
“You. Stuck. A. Needle. In. My. Ass.” he stated through gritted teeth.
“I think we’ve established that fact already.” she nodded.
“GODDAMMIT! YOU STUCK A NEEDLE IN MY ASS!” he roared. She stuck her finger in her ear and wiggled it around.
“Can you say it any louder? I don’t think the Terminators on the other side of the planet heard you.”
“ARGH!” Ash cried, throwing his hands in the air in annoyance. Aleksis simply burst out laughing at her brother’s dramatics.
“Don’t be such a drama queen. You got your head patched up. That’s all that counts.”
He glared at her for a moment before his face relaxed in a smile.
“Someday, I will have my revenge on you.”
“So you keep saying for the last 5 years.” she stated, patting the spot on her bed. He lay down beside her with a sigh, placing his head in her lap. He was still achy from the knock he received.
“Any news on the Commander?” he wondered, closing his eyes with a yawn.
“I haven’t heard. But no news is good news in my opinion.” she stated, going back to her book while she rested her free hand on his head. “I’m glad you’re still with me, Asher. You scared me when I saw you bleeding.”
“I’m fine sis. Just need some sleep.” Ash mumbled. “How’s your arm?” His eyes popped open as he remembered the bandage wrapped around her forearm.
“Just a scratch. Sleep, brother of mine.” Ash closed his eyes and snuggled deeper into his sister’s embrace.
“Miss mom and dad…days like this…” Ash muttered as he slowly drifted off to sleep. Aleksis sighed.
“So do I.” she whispered, watching her baby brother fall into dreamland. She shook her head affectionately before going back to her book.
” Didnt get a chance to make a formal acquaintence during the battle. I am Xavier, one of the head medics here. So how are you feeling? You look a lot better. ”
Looking at the file, Clarissa’s brow creased and she flicked through the dossier, before answering him promptly. “Understood, Commander. If that is your order, I will obey it.” She was not one to go disrespecting him, even if she did not entirely agree with his decisions. He obviously had a very strong hunch about this one, and if he was right, then god help them. The safety of all those that resided within the compound was at stake, and sometimes, you had to put their safety above your own. Closing the file, she set it back down on the desk, the information within it retained to her memory.
But it would seem that the suspect was already onto Ezekiel and the door to the office suddenly burst open, from a good hard kick. Clarissa jumped back in fright, course the Commander was actually expecting this, coming between the suspect, and Clarissa herself, acting like a shield.
“Just the person i was waiting…..Daniel…or should i say Terminator 1334 Let me guess you’ve been sent by skynet to eliminate me yes?”
The terminator didn’t wait to answer, instead going to guns on the Commander, who managed to drag Clarissa clear and then in a burst of speed, he went to attack the Terminator head on, using his fists, which were bionic. One fist went right through the machine’s head, much to Clarissa’s amazement. The drama seemed to be over faster than even she suspected, but then there was a announcement on the PA.
“Commander Whitestone and Commander Grant to the Commander center please.”
Righting herself, and still with her heart racing from the attack, she uttered to the Commander.
“Could there be more of them? We better get to the Command center.”

“This is Commander Whitestone speaking and I want you all to listen well…SkyNet has found us and now countless machines are on their way to wipe this little home of ours from the face of the earth. I’ll need everyone able body over the age of fifteen to report to the armory and ready themselves to fight. This is not a drill I repeat this is not a drill” As he was speaking, Aleksis and Ash were already gearing up and grabbing everything in their aresenal of weapons, slamming their helmets on their heads and making sure their armour was attached securely. They were out the door of their rooms in a flash and heading out to rendevous with the rest of their until in front of the building. The Commander’s voice was still echoing through every part of the compound. “…when we drive off the machine menace those left will celebrate by creating a monument to those lost in this hellish fight we have fought and finally ended with the breaking of skynet! ARE YOU WITH ME!!!”
Aleksis and Ash joined in the roar of the other troops in the affirmative as they began to prepare for the fight of their lives. There was no cockiness to be found within either sibling. Odds were on that this could quite possibly be their last night on Earth and they were going to go down fighting together, side-by-side, brother and sister until the last drop of blood was spilled into the dust.
