Before the Call Comes
The unit was now in a Flight Carriage on their way to a location a few miles away from their target. Bellz was flying the carriage by herself. Derpy offered to help, but the Bat was strong enough to handle the weight of her companions. They were all silent, thinking of what is to come. But despite what they were about to face, at the possibility of risking their lives, none were nervous.
“This is it. Bellz land by the tallest tree right over there.” Kido yelled to Bellz, pointing at a tree that stood out from the rest. She follow orders and started her descent.
They landed and quickly started to unpack. Each member had an individual backpack with supplies and weapons. They then covered the Flight Carriage with leaves, rocks, and wood.
“Al righty then listen up.” Kido addressed his unit. “Were making good time due to Bellz's speed. We have to walk around nine miles to some caves. We will then be a mile from our target. Keep your guards up. I'll take point, Bellz you take the back. Our sense of smell will alert us of any unwelcoming company. Move out.”
They walked for hours staying close to the shadows as they walked. They stayed silent, keeping their ears and eyes alert. Luckily no surprises. They were now a mile away from the caves.
“These guys are either really dumb or really confident nopony will mess with them. No guards, traps, nothing.” Spike pointed out.
“I agree with the latter.” Kido said.
“Hey Spike since when do you walk on all fours?” Applejack asked, she'd been meaning to ask for a while. She had noticed Spike walking on all fours.
“You can thank Sarge for that.” Spike smiled at her friend.
They soon arrived at the caves. The usual trees of the Everfree Forrest disappeared, and in it's place Palm Trees took over.
“Nice to see these maps are accurate.” Kido put the map away and looked to his unit. “Great job everyone, we made great time. The beach is only a mile away. When night falls we will go around our plan of attack and rescue and move out. Rest up for now.”
They proceeded to head into the caves and lightly unpack. As Spike drank gulp after gulp of water he felt proud of himself for never stopping or complaining. He noticed Kido sitting outside the cave and walked towards him.
“Hey Sarge you busy?” Spike asked.
“Just giving the area a sniff to double check for surprises. What's on your mind Private?” Kido answered.
“You're on an official military mission. You deserve an official rank.”
“Awesome...” Spikes expression changed to a more gloomy one.
“My friend... What's bothering you?”
“Kido... do you think I'm ready for this?”
“The thought of possibly ending a life is eating away at you I assume.”
“Yes... Even if it is for the right reasons... To save your own life, or someone else... How will I live with myself?”
Kido took a deep breath. “Spike... taking a life should never be easy. So let me start by saying that those feelings make you a being worth of admiration. But as for how you live with yourself... Not a day goes by that I don't think of those I've killed.”
“So it does affect you? No matter the reason then?” Spike saddened.
“Spike I'd be more afraid if it didn't affect me. Because that would mean I've truly lost my soul.”
Back inside the cave the other three members were resting. Bellz was eating mushrooms when she noticed Applejack not taking her eyes off her. Derpy was a few feet away writing in a notebook.
“Big elephant with a giant boner in the room. Get it out of your system before the mission.” Bellz put her food away for the moment. Derpy continued her writing, as she's already used to Bellz.
“Fine!” Applejack stood. “I don't trust ya. I will put it aside for the sake of taking down the slave traders but don't think for a second I've changed my mind about you or forgotten how you attacked my town.”
“For the past month I've been doing nothing but help to protect Ponyville. Even Twilight and Spike forgave me. Some residents who were initially afraid of me have even thanked me for helping out.”
“It's not enough.”
“I didn't kill anyone!”
“Only because Kido stopped you!!!”
“He helped me change.”
“Monsters like you don't change!”
“I saved a little filly from a burning building. And I'm helping to stop a slave trading camp.”
“You threatened to eat my friends.” Applejack got in Bellz's face now. Bellz remained silent for a moment.
“Applejack... like many that walk Equestria I have things in my past I'm not proud of. I asked time and time again for a chance from the residents of Ponyville. I thank the Goddess it was granted. My words will not convince you, I understand and respect you. But despite your disapproval I will prove I'm worthy of trust.”
Applejack gave a look of indignation and stormed off the cave. Bellz remained seated and started to eat again as if nothing happened. Derpy looked at her.
“You've been learning a lot from wolfboss.” Derpy said as she smiled at her friend.
“Yep.” Bellz smiled back. “It's like he said. If you do the right thing, you feel peace... So what you doing there? Writing more poetry about how much you love the boss?”
“Shut up!” Derpy blushed. “And yes I am.” Silence took over for a few minutes, Bellz ate and Derpy wrote.
“I'm still gonna bang him.”
“Wolfboss has standards.”
“Oh you bitch.”
The night took over. Kido was outside the cave behind a nearby rock keeping watch over the slave trade camp a mile away. He watched as one by one the lights went off. He believed his unit was resting in the cave preparing for when the call came, but he heard the distinct sound of wings flapping his way and he recognized the scent.
“Hey Wolfboss. Need some company?” Derpy came flying.
“From you my dear? Always.” Kido looked to his left side at the smiling pegasus with the beautiful silly yellow eyes. She giggled and sat next to her friend. “How did you know I was here?”
“I sorta figure you'd be planning. So a place with a clear view of the target was obvious.” Derpy looked to the camp in the horizon. “So that's it?”
“Indeed. It's still only eight pm. I think midnight will be perfect to strike.”
“It's as Spike said. They're overconfident. I can't see it from here. But by the way they are turning lights off in vulnerable areas, I assume there isn't a lot of security.”
“I see.” Derpy bit her lower lip at the thought of asking her next question, but decided to just go with it. “Wolfboss... we might get really hurt by doing this?”
Kido took a deep breath. “Yes. But hopefully what I have planned will be enough to get us through this. I'm sorry for asking you to aid me.”
“I trust you.”
Kido lowered his head looking hopeless. Derpy got closer to him putting a comforting hoof on his back. “Thanks.” They remained silent for a moment. Derpy bit her lower lip again in anxiety.
“Wolfboss just in case... I need to ask you something... or I think I need to confess something.”
“Well I sorta... I mean. I want to... That is if you don't mind...” Derpy started to have a nervous tick. She started to click her hooves together incessantly.
“Derpy you know you can ask me anything my dear.”
Derpy took a deep breath. “Wolfboss... can I kiss you? Just once?” Kido looked at her confused at the odd request. Derpy lowered her head feeling embarrased. “I really like you wolfboss. Even if you don't feel the same, I wanted to ask.”
“What?” Derpy lifted her head in surprise.
“I'll do it.”
“Derpy... You've stood by my side during the difficult times and accepted me for who I am today despite knowing what I did in the past. If a kiss will make you happy... So be it.” He gently grabbed her hoof and guided her to be closer to him. She obliged. He then placed his right hand on her face guiding her closer to his own. She offered no resistance. She closed her eyes as she felt Kido's breath on her face.
“Wolfboss...” She whispered as their lips touched. Instinct took over Derpy as she started to push her head closer to his, then she placed her front hooves on his chest. Kido embraced her in his arms lightly rubbing her back. He then felt something unexpected, her tongue inside his mouth. Instinct was now taking over the wolf as he started to growl and then placed a hand on her lower back, pushing her bottom to his crotch. As he started to dry hump her, Derpy couldn't hold back the feeling to moan. She removed her lips and started to moan in ecstasy. As if that wasn't enough, Kido with his other hand grabbed her hair lightly pulling on it to pull her head back to aggressively kiss her neck. She couldn't handle it, between the feeling of Kido rubbing her with his manhood and the sensation in her neck, it was too much.
“AAAAaaah!” She whispered. Kido stopped and let her go as he felt his pants get wet, he realized what he had done.
“Derpy I'm so sorry...” Kido had a face of shame.
“THAT WAS AWESOME!!! I only expected a light peck.” Derpy threw herself on him in a hug.
“All righty then. Was that really your first orgasm?”
“Yep.” Derpy lifted her head and smiled. She then relaxed her head again on his chest. Kido placed a hand on her back. “Thanks Wolfboss. I'll head back now.” Derpy made to get up and leave but Kido stopped her with the hand he placed on her back. “Huh?”
“Will you stay here with me? Until the call comes?” Kido looked into her eyes. Derpy smiled.
“For as long as you want.”
