[b "Move!"] Alex shoved her as a blast was sent her way. He fired off his own red plasma disc from his chest, striking the militia member storming towards them.
Ari sighed and walked quickly with the rest of the army. She sniffed and said. "They've been bombing that town..."
Left behind with the others, Alex gestured the rest of the army forward. [b "Don't let them catch you off guard,"] he spoke as they led them into the town.
"be careful, Erik..." She whispered loud enough for the elder male to hear and helped gather the flight squad.
[i "Which is why I will be joining them,"] Erik assured her.
Alex helped him gather the ones with flight capability, and ordered them to follow the elder mutant's orders. [b "He'll keep you alive."]
She nodded and said. "As long as they're careful if the enemy has an anti-aircraft gun..."
[i "If I might suggest,"] Erik interrupted. [i "You have numerous soldiers here capable of flight, among other powers. I'd recommend sending them overhead to distract the militia while the rest of us storm on foot."]
She growled slightly conflicted and sighed. "I don't know.... That's the problem."
As they approached the outskirts of the town, Alex could see smoke rising from buildings. [b "It's your call,"] he turned to Ari. [b "Do you want us to charge ahead full throttle, or try to sneak attack?"]
Ari sighed and had to resist the urge to run ahead to get to the village first.
[b "Let's pick up the pace, guys!"] Alex calls to the army trailing behind them.
Impressively, they all added speed to their march without questioning the young queen. They would shave off a few moments of time, and hopefully stop the militia on the outskirts of town.
Ari nodded and sighed. "We got to pick up the pace."
Erik's jaw tensed. [i "More so than I'd like to admit,"] he answered softly.
Alex could see the memories flashing before the older man's eyes, and pushed forward. [b "We won't let them get that far,"] he assured them.
Storm returned not long after, her face set in a stony expression. [i "They're ten minutes up the road. Almost at the edge of the village. They'll get there before we do, but we should be able to cut them off before they get too far."]
"be careful, try not to be seen." She warned and sighed. "Do these militias remind you of the Nazis?"
The elder man actually looked concerned. [i "These militias are ruthless. I'm afraid they're not known to leave anyone alive. It's not a certainty that we will find the town untouched. It's more a matter of how much damage they'll have already done."]
Alex frowned. [b "Then we'd best move as fast as we can. Storm!"] he called to the woman. [b "Can you fly ahead and get a look?"]
[i "On it,"] she responded, taking off seconds later.
