Trying to do one with a SRW feel to it.
A lone figure began running in the forest. He had a balaclava to cover his face, a beret worn on top and digital camouflage woodland BDUs with a combat vest worn on his chest and combat boots that were not worn out.
He ran as hard as his legs could take him, pursued by armed infantry, mobile suits and variable fighters of the United Nation's A-LAWs. His guerrilla unit had almost been wiped out a morning raid. The masked guerrilla had been lucky to get away since he was on a recon patrol. While his G36K assault rifle may have some luck against A-LAWs infantry, the bullets can't damage the mobile suits and the fighters.
"There you are!"
Another armed individual greeted the first one, dressed similarly except that he was armed with an AKMSU assault rifle. He was hiding in a ditch, which was empty of any life except the two masked individuals.
"Bad, bro. The forward base's been wiped out. And we're among the only ones left alive."
"Good thing I was told by the others to scatter."
A couple of ruck packs were seen near their feet, which contained most of whatever clothes, gear and personal items they can carry.
"So what now?"
"We need to move. Since Mom and Dad were killed for trying to criticize A-LAWs policy, we need to go deeper underground. Our family name's been sullied thanks to their damn propaganda. I don't know how long we can last as guerrillas..."
"Which means we need to get out of the country. Right."
The two began to wear the ruck packs, putting the shoulder straps on. But before they can get out of the trench, they were surrounded by GNX-704T Aheads and GNX-609T GN-XIIIs with their weapons aimed at them. A couple of VF-171 Nightmare Pluses were seen with the mobile suits, already in Battroid mode with their weapons also aimed at the two guerrillas.
One of the Aheads issued a warning by voicing it on speakers for the two guerrillas to hear.
"This is the A-LAWs. You two are ordered to immediately disarm and surrender. I repeat, you two are ordered to disarm and surrender at once."
"What do we do?"
"How the hell should I know?"
"Do we run?"
"You nuts? We'll be mincemeat in minutes..."
Before the two guerrillas could debate any further, several beam shots were fired to take out the A-LAWs mobile suits and variable fighters. Most of them were destroyed since the pilots thought the area was secured.
The guerrillas couldn't see what was happening, but they saw a mobile suit that was moving at the speed of light. It used a blade-like weapon to take out the variable fighters by slicing one of them in half. The second variable fighter was able to put up a fight by firing its Howard GU-14B gunpod at the unknown mobile suit. Eventually, the second variable fighter was destroyed after the mobile suit got up clsoe and fired several beam shots at its chest.
"Are... are we saved?"
The said mobile suit landed after the A-LAWs mobile suits were destroyed. It had a blue and white finish with some kind of tarpaulin that covered the missing left arm. The guerrillas looked at the mobile suit and noted that its original right eye was destroyed, having a red, glowing red eye as a replacement, which was salvaged from a MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type.
"It looks like it."
A young man of East Asian descent began to wake up, who had been sleeping on top of a unusual red motorcycle with storage boxes on the rear sides and at the back of the bike, which usually earned some interested looks from bystanders. Clad in the uniform of Mihoshi Academy in Macross Frontier's Island 1, the young man watched the artificial sky while lying down.
"Ah, there you are. For a minute there, I almost thought that you were like Sleeping Beauty."
The Asian man woke up and saw a blonde man with pointed ears leaning near his face.
"Don't do that, Mikhail. What if you frickin' kissed me?"
"I think I won't do that, Marc." Mikhail Blanc, Mihoshi Academy student and part-time pilot contractor for the PMC Strategic Military Services or SMS, grinned at him. "Unless if you're a woman."
Marc Liu wanted to give Mikhail the finger, but simply decided to ignore him since school was already over.
"Whatever man, I'm leaving. Good luck with your... side job later or whatever."
"Don't you want to know who's coming?"
"I don't know. Or it's maybe I don't care."
Marc got the motorbike helmet on his lap, flipped down the visor and started the bike. He then drove towards the downtown core of Island 1.
Sheryl Nome, the known pop idol from Macross Galaxy, and Grace O' Conner, a known personality from the same Macross fleet for being Sheryl's manager, had just exited a civilian spacecraft after arriving at the Frontier Spaceport. They had just been escorted by Frontier Spaceport Police (FSP) privately to another area before they directed them to enter a VIP corridor to the main lobby of the spaceport. Two FSP officers followed behind them for security precautions due to Sheryl's celebrity status.
"You must be the DOMS bodyguards we're suppose to meet?" Grace greeted a young man of East Asian descent who waited inside the empty corridor after the doors were opened up by FSP officers, who hid most of his facial features behind a pair of Neo-style shades. He wore a black windbreaker with velcro loops sewed on the jacket's arms, which had patches of various kinds placed on them, alongside jeans and black Adidas GSG 9.2 boots. He also sported a black buzzcut haircut.
"Yes. Marc Liu of the Dana O'Shee Military Service." Marc greeted Grace, who bowed a bit to show courtesy. "I'm assigned to be Ms. Nome's bodyguard while she's in Frontier."
"Do you mind if I ask for some identification?" Grace politely asked. "It's for precaution at least. We've been advised by the FSP and my agency's security chief prior to arrival in Frontier."
"Of course." Marc knew he was being watched by FSP for any sudden moves. So he carefully took his wallet from the rear pocket of his jeans and showed Grace his DOMS ID.
"All right..." Grace used her eye implants to scan the data on Marc's ID, ranging from his name to his date of birth and DOMS ID number. "Okay." The blue-haired woman nodded to Sheryl. "This young man checks out. He's officially your bodyguard in Frontier."
Sheryl smiled at Grace and nodded.
"I assume that Ms. Nome's here for the upcoming concert?" Marc asked Grace, moving ahead as the party floated down towards the other side of the corridor with gravity turned off.
"Yes." Grace replied. "Aside from the concert, she's also due to shoot some commercials with Dex Labs, judge a Miss Macross contest and assist in the preparation to shoot the Birdman movie."
"The upcoming movie shooting huh? Sounds interesting."
"Which is why my agency chose DOMS to be Ms. Nome's bodyguard, given your reputation back in the 21st Century."
"I'll try my best to live up to DOMS' reputation, Ms. Grace."
The party eventually arrived at the end of the corridor with gravity being turned back on. They allowed everyone to get back on the ground, albeit at a slow pace. Marc placed the earpiece on his right ear while watching Grace talking to Sheryl a bit, asking if she should cancel the press conference due to concerns that the pop star may be tired from the jet lag and the fold travel.
"Ready?" Marc faced Sheryl, who had received a transmission that the lobby was all clear.
"Of course I am." Sheryl smirked at Marc. "I'm Sheryl Nome after all."
"Well good to hear." Marc raised an eyebrow before he got the double doors to open, only to be greeted by flashing lights from the cameras of the mediamen (and some women) waiting for Sheryl to appear in the press conference.
Sheryl began to exit the VIP corridor, going to speak to the reporters. The spaceport officers were standing in front of her to prevent any fans from approaching her. Grace and Marc stood behind her, the latter eyeing the lobby to see men in shades, black suits and red ties with black Oxford shoes on.
They're from the Frontier Police Bureau's Presidential Security Division. Marc saw that the PSD officers were also accompanied by a brown-haired woman with a mole on her face. She was wearing standard OMNI officer's uniform with a blue side cap, which was another type of headgear allowed by OMNI aside from the peaked cap.
Unless if I'm mistaken, that's Lieutenant Cathy Glass. Daughter of President Howard Glass. Wonder why she's here?
"May the Father of Understanding guide us."
A black screen. Some names appeared on it, which included Teiwaz, Gaut, Fulla, Freyja and Wōdanaz.
"Let us begin this meeting."
boomed the voice of Wōdanaz.
"I have been informed that Fairy 9 has made a successful trip to Frontier, Freyja."
"Yes, of course."
"She'll be under the protection of both DOMS and the PSD in the duration of her stay."
"I will assume that things are under control there, Teiwaz?"
"It is, Master."
Teiwaz told Wōdanaz.
"I've planned things on my end to make sure Fairy 9's concert will not be interrupted."
came the excited voice of Fulla.
"Otherwise it would have been just a waste of time."
She then giggled at the end.
"It seems that our enemies may be on the move."
Gaut spoke up next.
"I've confirmed some intelligence reports that they could be trying to make contact with Fairy 9 anytime before and after the concert."
"The thing is we don't know where they are, considering that they've hidden themselves pretty well after the satellite attempt was foiled years ago."
Fulla reminded Gaut.
Teiwaz tried to reassure Gaut.
"I'll get my men to track down anything unusual regarding Fairy 9 and her presence in the next few days."
"Excellent work, Teiwaz."
Wōdanaz's voice boomed next.
"Well, if there's nothing else, then we can conclude this meeting for now..."
Wōdanaz stayed silent for a minute before he said
"May the Father of Understanding guide us."
"May the Father of Understanding guide us."
Frontier Chief of Staff Leon Mishima stretched from his seat after taking his [=VR=] glasses off, ensuring that the lights are turned on. He sports an all-white uniform jacket (with bluish/purple collars and sleeves) and pants and a black shirt.
"Now things should be interesting with Ms. Nome around."
"On behalf of the Frontier government, I thank you for gracing us with your presence."
The media had some pictures taken of Cathy shaking hands with Sheryl with Grace standing next to her. Marc had just been told via earpiece that DOMS has a van and a couple of sedans ready as escorts.
"Ms. Grace." Marc approached Grace from the back, whispering to her. "We have a vehicle ready for her."
"Thank you." Grace smiled to him before she spoke to Sheryl, telling her that the van is ready for her.
Marc excused himself and went ahead, exiting the spaceport's arrival lobby and waited nearby with some of the Sheryl fans camping outside just to see and greet her. He sighed and wondered if these people need to get a life at all.
A few seconds later, Sheryl stepped out of the arrivals lobby. This made the fanboys shout, yell and jump to get her attention. She simply smiled at them, waved and said her hellos while telling them to watch her concert debut in Frontier.
"INCOMING! WATCH OUT"
Marc and the PSD officers heard in their earpiece that someone is coming towards Sheryl with the intent of harming her.
"You murdered Lilith Amagi!"
Marc went to stay in front of Sheryl, seeing a young man ran towards Sheryl. He was a Caucasian in his late 20s with blonde hair, wearing a white shirt and a black vest jacket, jeans and running shoes. He had a cream pie in hand, ready to toss into the pop idol's face. The DOMS contractor didn't know if he had other weapons with him, but he decided to step in and protect Sheryl.
"GET DOWN!" Marc shouted, gripping the man's right hand and twisting it to make him drop the pie. In a few seconds, Marc forced the offender to get on his knees by kicking the back of his legs. Marc was assisted by a couple of FSP officers when they pinned the offender down on the ground, one of them giving Marc his plasticuffs as he cuffed the man's wrists behind his back. The offender was pinned down by the FSP officers, pushing his arms and legs since the blonde man was trying to resist arrest.
"That was quite a handful." Grace whispered. She saw that Sheryl was a bit shocked that she would be accused of "murdering" her friend from her music school days considering Lilith sacrificed her life to save the pop idol's life.
The PSD officers blocked the media and the fans from getting near Sheryl or the arrested offender, the latter being turned over to a couple of uniformed FPB officers after they searched him and found a retractable cutter.
"No comment! No comment!" Grace shouted to the media personnel. Marc assisted Sheryl in leaving the area, escorting her towards the parked gray Luxgen7 MPV and the two black Ford FG G6E sedans. All of them were sporting Japanese-style license plates while having LHD-type configurations. Except for the red motorbike Marc brought with him
"Sheld. Luke." Marc greeted Sheld Foley and Luke Lezerd, two DOMS contractors who had waited for Sheryl to arrive. Like Marc, they didn't wear suits as they opted to wear their usual clothes. Sheld had a blue (and black and white) jacket worn over a white polo shirt and blue shirt with Luke wearing a white coat (with black collars and sleeves) and blue dress shirt.
"I trust things are alright?" Luke asked Marc.
"They are. But we need to hurry."
"Right." Sheld opened the rear passenger door of the Luxgen7 to allow Sheryl and Grace to get in.
"Thank you so much." Grace thanked Marc, who nodded in return. He ran towards the parked motorbike, hopping on and getting the helmet from the rear storage bin. Once Marc wore the helmet, he turned around and saw Luke entered the leading FG G6E sedan and gave him the thumbs up. Marc assumed that Sheld was at the secondary FG G6E sedan.
Marc revved up the bike and gave the thumbs up to Luke before he drove off from the driveway, leading the convoy towards the direction of the downtown core.
Even if we were at odds with each other, I still thank you for training me, Instructor Bowman - Yu Ominae, reflecting on Bowman's death after killing him in Phantom Island
