I had found her. I had found Fire light.
She started talking to me like she knew me. The only thing she knew about me was my name.
"I'm sorry for being a little snotty earlier." she said. "I just wasn't in the mood to have to deal with a new recruit. But I can see you're more than a recruit now."
It felt strange talking to her. "why are you here?" she gave me a strange look. "I mean, why aren't you at home, doing girl things." she gave me an annoyed look. "Why did you join the army?"
"Oh," she realized what I was trying to say. "Well, when I was a filly, I always wanted to be a pastry chef. But, after a bad end to something good, I got drunk, enlisted, and have been here since."
She signed. I wanted to go to her side of the fire and comfort her, but then she changed the subject.
"you should take that helmet off." she said. But then added more. "Because of the crack running through it."
I didn't really want to take my helmet off, but I did. She seemed interested in the color of my (tan) hide.
"We should keep moving." I said. I didn't really like this situation. At all.
"Oh, yea," she remembered we were in a war zone.
I put my helmet back on.
"hey, Twilight ," I was listening to a prerecorded
Message I found on what looks like a courier. "Pinkie Pie's been trying to talk to you. Please talk to her. She's going to stop with the party time mentals. This Pegasus isn't asking much. Just talk to her." I recognized the voice as Rainbow Dash.
We walked further down the hall to the roof overlooking the whole city.
"It's beautiful, isn't it?"
Fire Light said, coming to my side.
"It used to be," I said, pulling up my digital wrist map.
I noticed multiple red targets coming towards us. Before I could say anything I heard Fire Light Scream.
"Multiple zebra carriers coming in. Get back inside, now!"
Plasma charges flew at us as the carriers got above the landing pad, dropping off tons of zebras. I pulled out my smg and started firing.
As I looked out the doorway of the hall, I noticed something in the distance. A light getting bigger. Not closer.
"Fire, get to the bottom floor, now!" she started to run as I closed the door.
I chased after her as she ran from the mysterious light.
I heard noises about half way down the stairwell. A big explosion hit the building. The ground under us cracked.
Then fell apart.
The sound of sniper bullets woke me. I looked up.
We were in a crevice, and Fire Light was protecting me. Luckily, the floor popped up around the crevice like a barrier. I heard multiple shrieks every bullet.
"good, you're awake," she said. She didn't even look at me, and I wasn't breathing very loud. "Stand up and help me, I can't do this all on my own. Get up here!"
I pulled up my wrist map. Nothing.
It wasn't a balefire bomb.
It was an EMP.
I stood up, grabbed my smg, and ran up the crevice to aid my companion.
After a few minutes, we were low on ammo. There were zebras on both sides now, probably because of the screeching of the sniper rifle.
I was on my last mag. I looked over at Fire Light. She already had her pistol out.
We heard screeching. It sounded like a robot. It got louder, then everything went white.
When I woke up, my first thought was that I get knocked out too much.
I looked around. No sign of Fire Light. I got worried and started thinking of all the things that could have happened to her.
I looked over the uprooted floor. There was a tank on either side of me.
No live zebras.
"Hey, Spark! I got your tags!" I turned around to see a ODSP with a white stripe on his helmet.
I started walking towards him when I felt my hoof hurt. I looked at it.
