Arc I Side Story 1: Investigate the Suspicious Activity

Somewhere in Oregon
Unknown Dirt Lot
------------------------
There used to be a much larger forest there in those woods... until the E.L.A came along. They drove everyone and everything out, razing the land left and right. In the span of a day, two acres of land was devastated. The search area had since expanded, and now much of the forest was lost, all an expanse of overturned grass and disturbed dirt. Machines and humans alike were searching through the rubble. Searching for something... important, something they knew could change the course of the war if they were to even get one.

Fortunately, the same held true for the other side...
------------------------
15:00
Nearby Base
------------------------
"What? Reinforcements from central command! A new recruit, you said? I see. Notify Kigo his backup will arrive shortly. We need this unit on the case as soon as possible. They may be close to finding what they're looking for..."

Mr. Hu

Post by TheMelon93 on Sat Jan 20, 2018 2:01 am

Thwack.

A sandbag swung dangerously high from its origin, with gravity finally taking hold and arcing it back toward its aggressor.

Thwack!

The sandbag was struck more forcefully, its lower end just barely scraping the ceiling this time. As if to retaliate, it swung back down at a higher velocity. The young man who had been punching it grunted and threw a left straight.

THWACK!

The force of the punch caused the sandbag to pull the steel frame several dozen feet in the other direction. The chains holding the bag in place were violently ripped from the steel frame, causing the bag to go flying even further. The padded cloth holding all the sand inside ripped apart upon impact with the ground, exploding in a spectacle of sand and leather.

The young man stood up normally, rotating his left arm. He looked around his surroundings, which was outside of a military air base. People of all kinds were bustling about; pilots, soldiers, officers, interns, engineers, all of whom belonged to this base. Except for him. He was a bit of an outsider.

“Kigo Hu, please report to hanger B. Kigo Hu, please report to hanger B,” a voice echoed throughout the base.

“About time...” the young man known as Kigo Hu finally said. He stretched his legs and jogged to his designation, eager for something new. Upon arriving, he was met with an officer who handed him a collection of files.

“Mr. Hu, good to see you,” the officer greeted. Kigo responded in kind, “Same to you, Pablo. What's this you're givin' me?” He stuck his hand in the folder holding them all and pulled out a series of photos. An aerial view of a city was staring right back at him.

“As I'm sure you know, the explosion on the West Coast has taken many lives and devastated countless more,” Pablo began. Kigo began perusing through the pictures as the officer went on.

“But in our last sweep, we recently discovered that there's been activity in the area. None of the people you see in those photos are from any branch of the U.S. Military.” Pablo continued. At this, Kigo stopped at what appeared to be a close-up of children being rescued and led away from a collapsed building by two men. Pablo paused for a minute, and resumed.

“What's more, they've taken over a city nearby, and have started taking hostages. From what we can gather, it looks like the civilians are being forced to cooperate with them.” As Pablo said this, the image in front of Kigo suddenly carried much darker implications.

“For what?” Kigo asked.

“Based on what informatics says, it seems to be a search and destroy type of situation,” Pablo answered.

Kigo went silent, poring through the rest of the files. After a few minutes, he spoke up, “So what do you want me to do?”

Pablo cleared his throat, responding as concisely as possible. “We want you to go in and investigate the matter. Your main objective is to find out what their purpose is, what they're searching for, and if possible, retrieve it. Any civilians you can rescue, you escort them out of the city perimeter at designated extraction points on your map there,” Pablo gestured to the map in Kigo's hand as he finished.

The young man nodded, folding the map and tucking it away in his pocket.

“One more thing. This is a bit of a last-minute call, but we've received word from Central that you'll be getting some backup. They're from the RISING Unit. Looks like you'll be getting transferred sooner than you think,” Pablo said. Kigo nodded again and left the hangar to await these new arrivals.

Although he was more than eager to meet others like himself in this new “RISING Unit,” his thoughts were now dominated by his new mission.

Slightly Later...
-----------------------------------
A jet blazed through the air, carrying Kigo's backup...a robot man named Nero, and a half-Saiyan named Arashi. Both remained in their area of the jet, awaiting their landing. From there, they would meet with Kigo and head for their insertion vehicle.

"Two minutes until landing. Be sure to return to your seats. We will be landing soon," the pilot's voice boomed over the intercom, "Good luck on your mission."

Nero and Arashi were both ready to go. They understood the weight of the gravity of the task at hand and fully intended to work together to the best of their abilities. The only thing they couldn't really account for was the personality of the man they were assigned to work with. Regardless if he was trusted with something this important he must be a dependable person. At least that was what Arashi believed.
"Alright men we're coming down!"
With the Pilots last words the aircraft slowly but surely came closer and closer to the ground below. It's landing gear slowly came out of the ship. The ground was just a few seconds away; as the wheels touched it both Arashi and Nero could feel the ship bump a bit. The plane slowly came to a stop as it lost its momentum. They have officially landed,so it was time to unbuckle their belts and exit the plane.

Both fighters exited through the rear hanger and as soon as they are both outside they scan the surrounding area. Turned out it really wasn't anything worth looking at.

However they did noticed one thing worth noting. Something was coming their way and it was moving at exceptional speeds.
Both Nero and Arashi prepared for the possible confrontation. Lucky for them however it wasn't anyone to be worried about. A well built young man with black short hair came to a screeching halt as his shoes grinded against the ground.

"You must be the RISING agents they told me about. It's a pleasure to meet you, my name is Kigo Hu."

Though he had already met several of the military's best fighters it was always a thrill to meet new ones potentially just too strong if not stronger than him. This man's speed and being here was proof enough. "My names Arashi Agbara. Pleasure to meet you man." said Arashi excitedly.

"My name is Nero. It is a pleasure, " said the Android.

"Good to know. Follow me, I'll take you to our entry point." The Android and Saiyan nodded in agreement and ran alongside Kigo. After dashing past trees and leaping over a river they soon came to a stop at the peak of a tall hill. From there they good see almost the entire forest. With them positioned here it was finally time to ask the big question.
"Sooooo what's the plan" Arashi asked.

Nero surveyed the area before answering and weighed their options before coming to an inevitable conclusion." I think it best we cleared out their forces around the outside before making our move towards the center. This way those at the center will have no reinforcements to rely on once we make our move."

Arashi and Kigo look at each other in amazement then back at Nero. It was clear that they had no objections to this plan. With their strategy agreed upon they all leaped into the forest, ready to tackle any dangers that may come.

“Wait a moment,” Kigo called out to his teammates. Nero and Arashi stopped in their tracks, and he gestured them to come to him. “I'm sure you've both been debriefed on rescuing civilians, right?” He asked the two. Both nodded quickly, except Arashi stopped mid-nod and pondered, “Wait...how ARE we supposed to get them out? We're not just gonna toss them into a helicopter, are we?”

“I was wondering that too, since a chopper might get shot down if it was spotted... So I was given this,” Kigo produced what appeared to be a small backpack. Arashi wondered where on his person Kigo could have possibly pulled that out from, but he would get no answers as Kigo continued his explanation.

“These are called Fulton ballons; you strap these onto them like backpack and pull this strap...here,” Kigo pointed to a red strap on the pack. “I've never seen these in action before, but if you do it right, a balloon should inflate and carry them straight up. Least, that's what I was told what would happen anyway. Air Force has some kinda airship rounding the extraction points to pick them up. It should be at a safe altitude, so once they're in the air, they should be in the clear. Any questions?” Kigo finished. Neither of them had anything to add.

The human put the pack away, and they continued navigating to their destination. Each of them expertly maneuvered through the forest, bobbing between trees and rocks while weaving over and under branches. As soon as they saw a clearing, they came to stop, concealing themselves behind some trees just before the open.

What lay beyond was a shadow of what once stood there. Dead, rotting trees were sprawled on top of the dry, cracked dirt, with numerous holes and craters dotting it. Scorch marks blanketed it all, making no distinction from wood to dirt.

As the three huddled together, Kigo pulled out the map he had received from Pablo. Carefully, he unfolded it and laid it out for all of them to see.



“All right...so by my estimate, we've got two hotspots close to us: one heading north-northwest, and another to the northeast,” Kigo noted. “And we have extraction points to our immediate west and east, and two additional points further north-northwest and north-northeast,” Nero pointed out. “And we've got two big hotspots further up with the biggest one in the center. We're gonna have to move quick and hit 'em hard once we go in,” Arashi pointed out. Each of them studied the map intently, searching for other clues they cold use.

"So how are we doing this?” Arashi asked. They all pondered this for a minute.

"i have an idea" Nero said, and immediately leaned forward, pulling...markers? out of his pockets? he immediately got to work updating the key, when that was done he put a purple marker to the start point, tracing a line around the hot zone

"First we skirt around the hot zone...up to the north-west most Extraction point, from there we hit the top activity zones, (they are the weakest) in quick succession. taking those out will secure routes to the north-west and north-east extraction zones.from there..." Nero takes out a green marker, and resumes his planning.

"we can set up distractions to lure enemies out of the stronger zones, so we don't get overwhelmed..i say we set up one, here...and here."

Nero then presents the finished map to the other two.



"is this a good plan to you two?"

Arashi was amazed by how well thought-out this plan was. Sure there was still risk presents but it was definitely more minimize then heading straight to the center and far more lucrative of a plan. With this they can use their numbers to the best of their capabilities. It's almost as if Nero was some sort of Genius robot. Now wouldn't that be something Arashi thought.

Kigo whistled, nodding at Nero's version of the map and wearing an expression that all but said “I'm impressed.” He chose to voice his thoughts, “I agree, this looks like a solid plan.”

Upon reaching an agreement, the three began cutting through the tree line to the west. Working their way north, they kept an eye out for stray hostiles out in their part of the woodland. Right as they began rounding up to the northwestern checkpoint, Kigo turned his eyes to the desolation.

A quick gander revealed a large tent obscuring some of his view. Around it, he could make out a large robot followed by a larger unit composed of smaller droids. He estimated that there were around fifty of them, just about. Some of them looked like they were working while the rest of them just stood guard. As much as he squinted his eyes to get a better look at the area, he couldn't distinguish any people among them.

Fortunately for the trio, none of the machines seemed to notice their presence. Before long they had arrived at their destination, securing the northwestern extraction point (which looked no different from the rest of the forest save for a small clearing in between the trees and a rock in the middle). Edging closer to the hotspot from their new position, they peeked out from between the woods.

The android among them spoke up, “Allow me to scan the area before we press on.”

“You wanna scout out the area?” Arashi asked. “With my sensors repaired, I won't need to,” Nero assured his friend. “...What are you, some kind of robot?” Arashi half-joked. His smugly humorous expression faltered with Nero's answer.

“Something like that,” the android ambiguously said. Kigo raised an eyebrow in curiosity, but reminded himself he'd have time to ask questions after they completed their mission.

“Scanning now,” Nero declared. Not even a second after those words left his lips, Nero drew his head back a bit. The faintest hint of a grimace etched itself onto his stoic image. “What happened?” Arashi asked the android. In a rather blunt voice, Nero explained, “There's too much feedback in this area... I can't get a positive reading on anything here.”

They kept low to the ground. Since Nero's sensors were rendered ineffective, the team had to take a minute to think about their next move. True to form, Arashi was the first to make a suggestion. “I say we go in and kick the crap out of 'em, they don't even know we're here,” asserted Arashi. “That might be an advantage we'll want to keep,” Nero told him.

“Look, I dunno about you, Nero, but stealth and I don't get along so great,” the Saiyan stated. “I'm much of the same,” Kigo unexpectedly added. Arashi was about to say something to that, but Kigo continued. “But Nero has a point. We have an advantage that we might need if we're going to do this quickly.”

Against that, Arashi could not muster up an argument. The three stood themselves up and prepared to make their move...

There they were, a large group of Androids just waiting to be taken down. Arashi and his teammates have succeeded in avoiding detection so far and this was the perfect opportunity to strike. Arashi leaded out of the bushes and dash towards the robots hoping to take out a few before the rest could begin their counter attack unfortunately that plan didn't quite pan out. Halfway there the young Saiyan had the misfortune of tripping over a rock and falling flat on his face. Though the fall didn't hurt him the coming attack from the Androids probably would've.
They all turned around almost in unison and locked onto their target.

"Eliminate" they screeched as one after the other they pounced on Arashi. Before they could get their cold hard grasp on the boy Nero ran out of the bushes! He quickly grabbed Arashi by his back pack and dragged him out of the way. Leaving the androids to slam onto the ground one by one.

Arashi and Nero failed concealment check

Through sheer dumb luck, Kigo had managed to slip by the androids undetected, but was separated from Nero and Arashi in the ensuing confusion. He wheeled back around, watching Nero drag Arashi out of the way of an impending rush pile from the enemy. Kigo grit his teeth, and sprinted like mad toward the mechs.

“Hey you rustbuckets, you missed one!” the human yelled. One of them turned its head toward him, which Kigo proceeded to slam his right leg into. Turning his leg into a powerful hook kick, Kigo launched the android's head and torso into a couple of others. The subsequent collisions erupted in a burst of wires and metal, with the force from the kick tearing their bodies apart and rending them into scrap heaps.

-----------
Kigo deals 10 damage to Horde! (HP 29 -> 19)
-----------
Round 1 start!

Initiative order
Kigo (19)
Nero (11)
Arashi (7)
Horde (2)

Stat Block (Lv. / HP / KP / ... / AP)

To Hit 13, To Dodge 13; Perception bonus +1
Zerg Rush (1d6+7 damage on hit)
Blaster Fire (2d6+7 damage on hit)

Still Kigo's turn!
-----------
Their attention drawn to him now, one of the androids moved to try and subdue him. Seeing this, Kigo directed and channeled his ki directly into his left foot, and brought it around for a high roundhouse kick. The robot was a bit sharper than he had anticipated, and managed to grab his leg mid-kick.

“Ngh!?” It didn't hurt, but Kigo couldn't maintain the energy in his foot. It ebbed away harmlessly, leaving Kigo stuck with his leg outstretched.

-----------
Kigo attempts a Charged Kick, but fails his Manipulation check! No damage! (KP 73 -> 67)
-----------

Before the android could attempt to attack him, Kigo pushed off of it with his other leg. He backflipped through the air and landed a few feet away from it, taking up an orthodox stance. Past the androids that were slowly encroaching on him, he could see that Nero was running up to them, while Arashi was scrambling to his feet...

Nero's turn!

Nero continued running, gaining speed untill he lept up into a flying kick, heading straight for the droids!!...the droids were on-guard however, and jumped back. Nero comind down hard on the open ground where his opponents had been.

thinking it was best to not give them any pause, nero immediately continued his assualy, launching himself forward and unleashing flurrys of kicks, though they were closer to their mark this time, the droids were still reacting with surprising agility.



Nero attempts a Kick on the Horde, an and nat 1's !! he then burns an AP to try again, and misses yet again!!

Arashi quickly dusted off his face and spat out the dirt that got on his lips. He couldn't believe this, his first official mission and he trips!? "Who does that" he thought. Arashi had no intention of being deadweight on this mission. He quickly renewed his charge towards the Android with both fists at the ready. If the plan Nero setup was going to work this fight needed to end quickly and this boy knew just how to do it.

"I'll just go for their heads"

Arashi then began swinging his body back and forth gaining momentum on his way to his first victim. The Androids quickly turned around as they heard the sound of his loud stomps against the ground. Though all that provided them with was the chance to see Arashi's fists headed towards their faces. One after the other the boxer smashed the androids with heavy punches! Each of his previous target's dropped to the ground with a collective thud. All four of them started twitching and emitting sparks until their function finally ceased.  With that done only one remained and it was coming right for Arashi.

Arashi used Punch and deals 14 damage to Horde!
(Horde 19>5)


The Android made its way towards the Saiyan but he had no intention of waiting. He simply jumped forward and swung his right fist into it's chest. Thus sending it's body flying several feet away. It crashed onto the ground and showed no signs of getting up.

Arashi pays 1 AP to use Punch again. Arashi hits and deals 18 damage! (Horde 5>0) (Arashi 3AP>2AP)

Nero, Kigo, and Arashi WIN!!!

Or do they!?

With the horde vanquished, everything seemed set for the team to get moving on with the next phase of their plan. Then, they heard it.

"Scree!!"

Kigo turned, just in time to see a black plant-like being leaping at him, claws extended. Naturally, Kigo was able to leap out of the way, but the sentiment still remained. There was still something else to take down before this zone was secure.

The creature screeched at Kigo again and moved to attack him. However, the human responded in kind by dodging its swift swipes, showing off his own high-speed movement. After getting a read on its movements, which were completely feral, Kigo's dodging transitioned to offensive maneuvers. The furious swipes made by the Copyman were met with Kigo's quick and precise punches. With each successive hit, Kigo inched ever closer to scoring a clean punch against it.

Or so he thought.

Slowly Kigo found himself throwing more punches but coming no closer to hitting the Copyman itself. A quiet realization dawned on him only a short while into the exchange. “Is it...studying my moves?” speculated Kigo.  He'd fought people who analyzed his moves before, but this was unprecedented, even for him. The wild nature behind the Copyman's attacks gradually grew more precise.

This didn't last, however. The Copyman suddenly lost its rhythm, having tripped over its own feet as it tried to advance on him. Kigo wasted no time in taking the advantage, and drove his right fist into (what he assumed to be) its temple. He felt the flesh warp around his fist; he knew this was going to leave a mark.
----------
Kigo throws a normal Punch at the Copyman, which fails Reflex, thereby making this a Critical Hit! The Copyman attempts to Endure but fails! Kigo deals 18 damage! (HP 42 → 24)
----------
The creature yelped in pain, and skidded back several feet. Kigo noticed that black liquid leaked from where he made his impact. “Did that do it?” Kigo wondered, studying it carefully. To his dismay, it resumed its movement seconds later, as if nothing had happened. “Guess I'm gonna have to hit harder then!” Kigo declared.

The creature raised a war cry (screech?) in response: "Screeeeeeeeeee!!!!"

The Copyman skittered toward Kigo at an alarmingly faster rate than before!
----------
Round Two
Initiative order
Kigo (19)
Copyman (16)
Nero (11)
Arashi (7)

Stat Block (Lv. / HP / KP / ... / AP)
-----------
Arashi (Lv. 3 / 111 HP / 138 KP / 2 AP)
Nero (Lv. 2 / 86 HP / 66 CP / 3 AP)
Kigo (Lv. 2 / 85 HP / 67 KP / 4 AP)
Copyman (Lv. 1 / 24 HP / 23 KP / 2 AP)
----------
Copyman's turn!

The Copyman and Kigo resumed trading blows, the little creature doing quite well for someone with a dent in the side of his head. This time, though, Kigo was the first to make a mistake, and the Copyman leapt forward, limbs spread out. They then latched around Kigo's upper body, and held on tight.

Copyman attempts to Grapple Kigo, and succeeds in doing so! Uh-oh!
Nero's turn!

Most would find this current situation to be very undesirable or just down right terrifying. However all Nero saw was a golden opportunity.
"Arashi. I will destroy its left leg and arm with a kick! I believe your strength will help you do the same to the limbs on its right."

"On it Nero!"

The two of them charged towards the black creature.  In seconds they were both in front of Kigo. As they pulled back their legs Kigo knew what they were planning. The human put a stop to his struggling and remained perfectly still to provide his comrades with an easy target.
In one swift motion the Saiyan and the Android unleashed powerful front kicks that ripped through the little devil's arms and legs.

By the end of the attack the Copyman fell to the ground along with its severed limbs.
It started to screamed out in pain as it bleed out from the horrendous wounds.
It was quickly silenced however when the fighters responsible for its suffering brought down the legs they used to free their friend and caved in its ribcage with a ground breaking team stomp.

Nero initiated a tag team kick with Arashi!
Critical hit! Copyman takes 64 damage!
(Copyman HP 24>0)


Both Nero and Arashi removed there foots from the now broken corpse. Nero looked towards Kigo asking if he was alright.

"Oh I'm fine. Just glad you got that thing off me" Kigo said with a relieved expression on his face.

"That is good to hear" Nero said.

Sadly Arashi wasn't feeling the same way. When he had first attacked he just assumed it was another version of the Androids he had been fighting till now. But this was the last thing he was expecting. He could feel the bones crack under the weight of his foot. Not to mention the blood his attack forced to erupt from the creature mouth. Arashi felt a tad sick,but he had to tough it out. He was brought here because he told his superiors he could handle it. This is just one of the many changes he was gonna need to grow a tolerance for. Bit by bit if necessary.

Nero looked down towards the broken body of the Copyman, of course he had known he might have to kill something in this conflict but..to actually do it? Nero couldn't quite place how he felt..a little guilty, perhaps? regardless..the creature hadn't left them much choice.

Nero looked up and, along with the others, decided it would be best to search the area for civillians...however after 17 minutes the search came up with nothing. no evidence anyone was even there.

afterwards the three began making their way towards the next zone.

The three made their way towards the next zone quietly, shuffling along Nero's route as per the plan. Once again, they saw a guard post, and could see the upcoming guards. The three began to leap into action, and once again, Kigo evaded detection. Arashi stumbled, and Nero tried once again to correct his error. But this time, their error went unnoticed, and Kigo made first strike...!

In what appeared to be a repeat of the last zone, Kigo once again experienced no difficulty slipping under the androids' radar. He glanced over at them and took a quick headcount, “Four at my 11 o'clock, and another four at my 3.”

Planting his feet firmly on the ground, he directed his aim toward the first group of mechs.  Whether by sheer coincidence or dumb luck, they happened to line up perfectly with one another, giving him a straight shot down the middle.

He slowly drew in a breath, and time began to crawl. The longer he took in air, the slower it seemed to get. Kigo stilled his body and mind, both focused on the androids in sight. His face, previously scrunched up in concentration, relaxed in preparation for this blow; an eerie calm crept over him, accompanied by a jolt tingling down his spine.

Using his toes, he kicked off from the ground at a great velocity, and threw his elbow out in anticipation for the enemy. The first in his line of fire was struck in the torso; as it connected dead center, the android was bisected from the sheer force of his blow. The rest of them fell in a similar fashion; none of them were even given enough time to process what was happening, much less a chance at reprisal. Galvanized by an incredible amount of power, Kigo cut straight through the unsuspecting robots like a hot knife through butter. In that single moment, his elbow had become a cannonball, the androids his unwitting targets.

Each of them exploded in a spectacle of metal and wires. The cacophany it produced rang clear to Kigo's ears as he skidded to a stop. Turning to survey the aftermath, he saw that only scrap remained where his foes once stood.
-----------
Kigo makes a Critical Hit with his elbow, dealing 22 damage to Horde 1! (HP 20 → 0) Horde 1 Destroyed!
-----------
“Four down, four to go,” Kigo muttered, turning his attention on the other horde. Glancing past them, he flashed a small smile. It seemed that Nero and Arashi were already making their moves against them, only this time, they were also able to take advantage of their opponents' inattention...

Nero had wasted no time, his body was tensed, and he was already knealing down. in an instant he kicked off the ground and lept towards the second horde, coming down on the unwary droids with a kick that immediately tore two of them apart.

he continued, unleashing a flurry of kicks that shredded several more, scrap and parts flying across the area. when his assualt was done but a few droids remained...

Nero surprise kicks horde 2 for 13 damage!! Horde 2 HP 20 -> 7


Arashi's turn!!

Arashi was amazed by how epic Kigo's attack was. The swift but powerful way he strikes when going in for the attack. Leaving no openings for counter attack or escape to occur,much like a predator. It was clear that this young man was without a doubt a practitioner of a far more "refined" style of fighting than the Saiyan was use to seeing let alone using.

As for Nero there was a strange sense of precision in every move he made. Perhaps being he was trained in a style that heavily emphasized efficiency, leaving less room for error. It was all just so thought provoking and really got the hybrid fired up for his attack.
While the two remaining Androids were paying attention to their two new guests Arashi took the initiative. A quick one-two combo went straight throw one android's back like a nail being hammered into a wall.


The final Android noticed it's robotic bretheren had fallen and turned around only to be met with the same fate. Arashi walked towards us allies as the Android fell forward asking "what next?"

Arashi used Punch and dealt 17 damage! (Horde 2 HP 7 >0)

After mopping up with the rest of the trash, the three proceeded to search through the area for any signs of hostages. Kigo and Arashi did not come up on anything noteworthy, but Nero's search turned up more interesting results. Quickly stripping down every detail in just under four minutes, the android had discovered a few rings scattered about, along with scores of tracks in the dirt. Each set was bipedal in nature; Nero mused that they were perhaps human in origin.

“Kigo, Arashi, come take a look at this,” he gestured to his comrades. As they knelt down to inspect for themselves, Nero stood up, trying to follow where their tracks went. “Are these...human tracks?” Arashi asked. Kigo nodded, but added his own question: “But where do they lead?”

“Statistically speaking it would be highly likely that they were removed to the center, as it has the most copious amount of activity underway. There are possibilities of being outliers, however,” Nero answered. All the technical jargon only confused Arashi, so Kigo simplified, “He means they're probably in the biggest hotspot considering there's a lot more activity going on there than any of the other spots. There could probably be a few stray hostages sitting in the other zones, though.” Arashi's deep contemplation and rapid, enthused nods told Kigo he got the message.

“In any case, our initial objective remains the same. Once we secure the third zone, we move onto phase two of the plan,” the android resumed. Arashi and Kigo nodded, and began running toward the next hotspost. In following, Nero pocketed the rings he had found earlier, and continued after them.

Arashi , Nero, and Kigo sat in the new set of bushes. From their position they can easily see their opposition. Eight Androids and some more of those small creatures similar to the one they had demolished from before. That realization sparked a sense of discomfort in the Saiyans belly. He was trained to be a fighter not a killer but at the same time it was going to come down between either him or them. Arashi begin to exhale and inhale preparing in preparation for his next move. "Ok" he thought to himself!

This was his moment to correct his previous mistake and do what he does best! You look towards his comrades to make sure they were ready to strike. Both Kigo and Nero nodded their heads in agreement. The each ready themselves to pounce and end this as quickly as the last sector. "Now" Kigo said right before they each jumped out of the bushes. Sadly there timing was a bit off because once they had all made the leap a few of the Androids we're in the process of turning in their direction. Be a bad luck or just human error it didn't matter. They had been spotted!

Arashi,Kigo, and Nero fail their concealment checks!
