Chapter 1: Meeting
“Damn it. What the hell was that thing? We at least made it thru ok.” the woman held her side as she stumbled forward she fell to her knees leaning against the dirt caked wall. Her helmet retracted into her suit. Brown hair cascaded down to her shoulders in a mass that was once held back in a low pony tail. She looked over at her white armored companion who knelt down and started tending her wound.
“Lady Sonomi.” he sighed “you should really be back at base. That infected beast could’ve killed us both. You shouldn’t be so reckless” He finished. This was followed by a laugh from Sonomi as she looked at her companion
“Weiss you should’ve realized by now I hate staying in one spot, not when I can help people still.” She stood up as Weiss finished bandaging her side. Her helmet covered her face once more as the two proceeded down the tunnel to the little suburb on the other end.
The two hacked a bloody trail thru infected people as they came out of their homes. They were slow but packed a punch and nearly had numbers to overwhelm. After a few minutes of cutting their way thru, Sonomi cut the last one’s head off. Her ether sword caked in the dark blood of the creatures. She caught a glimpse of Weiss as he ran after a dark figure.
“Weiss! Wait,” she yelled chasing after him. The two followed the figure into a small rundown house it looked as if it stood that way for years. She looked at the black webbing that covered parts of the halls. She noticed Weiss standing in front of a small curled up figure. She walked forward and noticed it was a young girl who couldn’t have been more than fourteen or fifteen.
“Weiss! No!” She stopped Weiss as he raised his sword to kill the girl.
“Why?!” he motioned at the girl “She’s infected like the rest of them” he looked angry at the order.
“She has a different infection look at her neck and left hand” Sonomi pointed to the black that covered her arm and part of her neck. “It appears to be a lot slower too.” She approached the girl. She tried to push herself more into the corner as she noticed another figure coming forward. Her steel blue eyes wide with terror.
“G-Go away” she sobbed as she covered herself with her arms. Sonomi smiled kindly reaching out to the girl.
“I’m not here to hurt you neither is he.” She looked at Weiss as he sheathed his sword. The girl lowered her arms a little.
“You’re those tenno beings. Who kill all the infected. Your kind killed my family. So why not kill me. You’re just monsters” she screamed. Sonomi’s helmet retracted again
“No we’re not. I’m here to rescue you. I’m here to give you a new life.” She reassured the girl who looked surprised to see a human under the armor.
“You look . . . human. . . I thought you would looked different. Though . . . w-why would you only rescue me,” she questioned.
“You’re special. Your infection hasn’t made you into one of those creatures and I’ll make sure that never happens to you,” She stood up and offered a hand to the girl “So why not come with me?” The girl cautiously reached out her hand as she grabbed Sonomi’s. She helped the girl to her feet and made one last look around the abandoned neighborhood.
“Lets go back to HQ,Weiss. We have done all we can.” The two helped the girl to the extraction point.
