Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5 and Chapter 6. Bless as You Read!
Habeeb started to think back and forth for possible options on how to evade his newly-found enemies. He was the only one that now had information on how to destroy the aliens, and he wasn’t going to let them kill him before he could tell it to his crew. The Martian ships on his tail were already gaining on him fast and he had to do something. He looked in the Stealth Dragon’s rearview mirror and discovered that they had both aligned to a single line to gain acceleration and attack him, then an IDEA hit him.
“Hank”, he called.
“Sir”, replied the Indian
“Command Chris to fire two missiles at me, each having a time interval of only five seconds”, he commanded.
“Sir?”, asked James, confused.
“You heard me right”, started the Captain, “do it now”
“But you’ll get yourself killed”, protested James
“That is not your problem right now. Your problem is making sure these green idiots don’t get to know where our ship is and I’m trying to make sure of that here. Do not question this. This is not a statement. Its an order. Relay my message to Chris, NOW!”
The co-captain and Hank saw that there was no reason to argue with the captain and sent the instructions to Chris. In less than 30 seconds, double missiles had left the WorldFleet Express and was heading in the direction of the captain’s ship. Everyone back at the WorldFleet Express were watching, some with tears in their eyes, as the missiles were heading for the captain and three alien ships.
In less than a minute, Habeeb sighted the missiles from afar. He looked at his rear-view once again and saw that the alien ships were now closer to him. He checked his Turbo and saw that it was now fully charged. Then he started to slow down. Everyone was amazed. Why is he slowing down again now?
As he slowed down, the aliens moved closer from the back while the missile raced closer from the front. He kept on slowing down while maintaining a suitable velocity to achieve maximum momentum. At this point, it was only a matter of seconds before the aliens caught up with him and the missile arrived. He kept on with his snail speed. Everyone back at the main ship were already expecting the inevitable. This would be the fall of Captain Babz Habeeb. He had served his planet well, dying in its defence.
- “10 seconds to Rear Impact, Evade! Evade!! Evade!!!”
beeped an alarm in the Captain’s ship. His plan was going according to the way he thought it out. All he hopes is that he can pull it off. He counted to seven in his head, slapped his palm against the turbo button and swerved to the right. The speed in which he did it stunned everyone — both the aliens and his crew members. Everyone didn’t expect what happened next too.
The missiles that had been travelling straight to the captain’s ship crashed into the oncoming aliens, resulting into a chain of crashes. Four loud bangs followed each other successively and the Space-Screen went blank, be-clouded with thick smoke. Everyone went mute again. Light sobs could be heard from the more sympathetic females and some groans could be heard from the male counterparts. Captain Habeeb had falle—-
A speeding Stealth Dragon emereged from within the large cloud of Smoke. It bore the Blue Mark. Its Captain Habeeb’s ship. Everyone jumped up for joy and screamed and hooted.
“Good job, Captain”, spoke James into the Inter-Com when a connection was established.
“Thanks James”, replied the Captain, full of smiles, “open the hatch door for me and ready the cabinet members. I know how to take these pieces of shit down. We go to war. TODAY!”
More shouts and hoots could be heard in the background as the captain shut off the Inter-Com and concentrated more on his driving. Today, either they conquer Mars or Mars conquers them. Today marks the end of the war.
