Lance watched, it was all he could do. Watch. He watched the blazing pieces of ships falling from the sky. Landing on the planet. His chest was tight, and his throat felt swollen as he didn’t know what to do. He was having a panic attack, though it felt a lot peaceful than it should have. His body raptures with numbness, slowly taking his body over before all he could do was hear and see.
War is a dangerous, dangerous place. War isn’t home. War is death, and grief and pain. War meant loss, no matter the side you were on you always lost something along the way.
And he did lose something, he lost a lot. Yet, he was still watching. Despite the screams that died down one by one around his being. Despite the ashes that fell from the sky like snow, pricking him as it landed on his exposed skin. The suit under his armor was ripped, exposing his bare skin to the hot atmosphere. It didn’t matter, he was too numb to even feel a thing, though the wind that blew from impacts gave him chills. His body covered with goosebumps and filling with sudden sickness. How had it come to this? He was alone now. He watched everyone he knew disappear without a trace and he had no idea where they could be, let alone if they were alive.
He raised himself to his knees, sinking gently into the alien dirt beneath him. Blood dripped from a gash on his jaw, and tears followed close behind. They mixed and landed on the tall grass below him. He brought himself to his feet, shaking with fear and anxiety. He needed to go. And he did. He turned and began to walk before looking back one more time. Then he ran.
He let his feet carry him for miles, he went for as long as he could. Hours, days. He couldn’t tell. But now, he was falling down a steep hill and couldn’t stop himself. By the time he landed he had screamed in agony from the sharp metal that had tore a chunk from his calve. Though, he passed out before he could ever think about sitting up.
