Maelstrom Part 10 - Teamwork?

(WARNING, THIS IS A WARNING YOU MUST READ: The following part to the story has a LOT of spoilers to SoC and CS and Red Storm, Lakota and Fallen in the Rain. MORE THAN USUAL, this one actually has lines directly taken from the end of SoC, word for word. It also contains some dialog in Lakota and Red Storm but still this is an important WARNING)

---The Group---
They walked slowly along the Ukrainian fields, they looked over their shoulders occasionally.
"that bastard, we have to save the day, he caused this mess" said Storm
"hey don't blame him, it would have happened anyways" Chain shouted back
"oh really, one of us had to go out and shoot whatever contained the zone?" Storm replied
"well he probably thought it would end it all just like your precious Lakota was supposed to do" Shade yelled from behind them
"hey leave Lakota out of this he was a great guy" Dime shouted back
"hey I got an idea, lets blame Shadow instead for uniting us to screw the world even more" said Stallion ahead of them
"shut the hell up" Beaver shouted at them
"wanna go?" said Stallion "bring it"
He pulled up his revolver. Buffalo held up his Taurus, training it on his eyes, Bull aimed his shotgun at Buffalo, Hawk aimed a Kalashnikov at Bull, in a few seconds everyone was aiming at each other.
"how about this, we put the guns away and calm down, we can blame each other or continue the task at hand" said Barman stepping into the web of guns
"great idea" said Shade mockingly "hey Storm I think you lost your pet"
Storm looked around and noticed Ghoul was missing.
"shit" she shouted and ran off, everyone looked at each other and ran after her, they ran up onto a Hill and saw Ghoul picking something up off the ground, it was glowing.
"well look at that, the Ghoul found a Soul" said Shade laughing
"shut up" Storm shouted back as she ran down the hill and dragged him up
"why do we keep him?" Viper asked
"hell I don't know but if we say anything we will have our guns crossed again, lets just go with it" said Buffalo
They continued their path west, if they were going to get anything done they needed to deal with their hostilities first...

Strelok walked north, through the dark Red Forest, his Geiger counter clicked as he crossed through the bush, listening to the roars and squeals of beasts deeper in, he felt fear, something he didn't feel in a while. He was alone and walking back to fate, walking to a false end, what would he learn, what would he accomplish. He kept walking until he found a sign pointing him in the direction of Pripyat, he was almost there...

---Two days later---
Strelok looked up, it was a sad sight, the once majestic Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. He walked along, he thought he heard a song, a beautiful song at that. He walked down the road, he heard voices, voices he remembered. They drew closer with each step, he thought he heard gunfire and screams and explosions of crashing ships.
"hello Strelok, I see you have many questions for me, then ask them and then we decide what to do with you" said the C-Conscious Representative "We are the result of an experiment aimed at creating a super consciousness called C-Conscious."
He walked further along the road, the music sounded louder, the screams and gunshots grew louder as well.
"The C-Consciousness is seven volunteers that are connected during the experiment leading to the creation of the super consciousness that is us." said the C-Consciousness Representative "We immediately subordinated those who were conducting the experiment and assigned them to tasks we needed them to carry out."
He walked closer and closer, he can see destroyed vehicles and remains as old as six to eight years.
"According to our calculations, earth is surrounded by a special information of field, the so called, Noa Sphere." said the C-Consciousness Representative "It includes all the innevitents of the planet with competent abilities. Our main goal was to make small adjustments to the Noa Sphere, allowing us to removing this like anger, greed, cruelty and other negative factors from the planet."
Strelok drew closer, he could hear the explosions and screams of pain in his head, still he followed the beautiful noise.
"Individuals are unable to affect the Noa Sphere but the C-Consciousness could." said the C-Consciousness Representative "Unfortunately we made a mistake, and our interference made the zone."
The sound became faster, and a heartbeat mixed into the song. He drew closer and closer until he found the hole in the wall, he ducked under it and climbed down the hole. He was consumed by sound, of mutants and men fighting to the death.
"Strelok nice of you to join us" said Mikhael "I have been searching for you, but I must admit I underestimated your skill"
He dropped down and landed with a loud bang, he got up and raised his rifle and proceeded down the labyrinth of tunnels.
"well I must leave" said Mikhael "Important Mission you know, taking over the world"
He ran down the tunnels, he stepped over several old remains, he ran down ladders and through decimated tunnels that saw many explosions, some partially caved in.
He neared the heart chamber.
"your Lakota?" Strelok asked
"yes" Lakota replied
Strelok neared the door, anticipation rising.
"Lakota? we thought you were dead" Fanatic replied
"close enough" said Lakota
"give me the heart" said Strelok
He touched the door knob.
“no” said Lakota “I was told one day that I had a destiny, I was told this after I died several weeks ago, I didn't understand what they meant, I now do, this is my time, this is what I was born to do, I am to bring an end to it all”
He turned it.
“I will get him out of here, can you handle that?” said Strelok
“anything special I need to do?” asked Lakota
“walk in and make a wish, don't expect to be walking out of it after” said Strelok
“thanks” said Lakota “thank you for letting me end this”
“just end it already, I am sick of this” said Strelok as he left the room and helped Chain over the bodies of the hundreds of burned mutants.
The door opened. The music sounded wonderful, he realised what it was, it was fate, fate calling him to answers. He walked through the door to see a brightly lit room he was looking into the eyes of a familiar face.
"hello Strelok, I see you have many questions for me, then ask them and then we can decide what to do with you" said Shadow
Strelok walked up to him.
"why hasn't it ended?" Strelok asked "we kept fighting for years now, why hasn't it ended?"
"well that was the reason I wanted you to come here" said Shadow "you see, we had done it all right but we missed one part of it, one step of the process and because of this, we failed and the zone expanded because of this, we tried again, lost countless lives but we skipped the same step"
"what step?" Strelok asked "we had the heart, the code to the door, we found our way here, we made our wish, what step?"
"the Maelstrom Core, it is required to be used with the heart, the Maelstrom Core is an amplifier, in a way, it increases the effect of whatever its near, explosives, radiation, hell even wishes, it is effectively an item of great power" said Shadow "and this is the problem, your friends once again march to their deaths, the Maelstrom Core is in the hands of the Americans, they will use it and it will bring many deaths."
"it must be stopped" said Strelok
"that's just it, it cannot be stopped, events are set in motion" said Shadow
"so we are all dead?" Strelok asked
"no, we cannot stop it from happening, but we can change the target" said Shadow "remember, only you can do this because no one else has to skill and hell the firepower to defeat the entire defensive force of the Maelstrom Core in the time it will take for the President to turn the key. Your friends are a long ways away, you will have trouble catching up"
"I gotta leave now" said Strelok heading for the door
"no" said Shadow "we must train first, I have sent my friend Lebedev to retrieve a Helicopter, I am sure you will find its use, let me explain you will not be fighting a power plant. You will be fighting the entire force of the American Military head on"
"I see your point" said Strelok "then it seems I must wait"
"you understand, good, follow me" said Shadow
"when does the training end?" Strelok asked following him
"I know this will sound cliched" said Shadow "but you will leave when the is right"
"what am I supposed to arrive in the nick of time?" Strelok asked
"well, yes" said Shadow, they walked out of the room

---Many Weeks Later---
The group walked up to see the English Channel, they walked for days and managed to reach the beaches of Normandy, the stalkers had done it, they pushed them back and were fortifying, waiting for the American retaliation. The group, walked down towards the camp, giving sharp looks at each other, they learned they hated each other after the long trip. They reached their goal, now they had to help.
"we made it" said Scar "look at that we might save the day after all"
"yeah I am sure Ghoul will make an incredible soldier" said Shade
"shut the hell up Shade" said Storm "no one asked you to come along"
"and you are the only one who asked Ghoul to join us" said Shade
"the others don't mind" Storm shouted back
"well that's because the others don't mind you" said Shade
"frankly I can't wait to get to the camp, I get to distance myself from you" said the Barman walking faster
"in other words" said Scar "shut the hell up both of you, you can sit at opposite ends of the camp if you want"
"so Scar are you going to join?" Chain asked
"well I might, I might wait for Strelok to show up" said Scar
"like he will, hes probably relaxing somewhere" said Storm
"I doubt it he is heading to the NPP" said Scar
"the NPP" Chain shouted
"your kidding" said Beaver looking at them
"he has many questions, he is going for answers" said Scar "after all that's happened up there, it will be painful"
"lets just hurry up" said the Barman
"painful?" said Storm
"here we go" said Rabbit
"hey why don't we just..." Joker began
"NO" said the group together
"he screwed us, he screwed us over by releasing the zone then went BACK to do it again and again" said Storm "and his return should be PAINFUL"
"my head hurts" said Lockpick
"its gunna get worse than that" said Rabbit
"well here is something you don't know" said Scar "He went there with no memory of who he was, he fought their not to screw us, not for riches, he wanted to find the truth. He fought his way through hell and back and opened a door leading to the truth of who he was and he heard a story he believed was bullshit, he may have screwed the world but hey, it probably was screwed anyways. So before you believe you can be better think about it"
"yeah and he fought through and save my life, he could have stopped Mikhael from entering the chamber, but he chose to save a wounded Stalker. When Mikhael entered, he made sure he never came out." said Buffalo
"and at the very end, he set aside difference with his friends killer and let Lakota enter the chamber instead" said Chain "if Strelok entered it we would probably be hating Strelok instead of Lakota who sacrificed himself"
They stared at each other for a moment, Storm opened her mouth to respond but had nothing to say, they stared at each other before turning back to the camp and walked in awkward silence.

Maelstrom Part 9 - Break on through to the other side

Strelok looked around, he and Scar waited as the elevator suddenly screeched to a halt, they looked at each other and both let out deep sighs. The elevator buckled, suddenly they plunged down faster and faster, they checked to see if their exoskeletons were ready, hopefully the suits would take the impact. They crashed into the ground, they collapsed, the elevator was now lopsided, the door partially open. Strelok and Scar both pulled on the door, it opened slightly. They struggled to fit through the crack. They looked around to see the lights were out and a thick level of dust was filling the corridors.
They readied their weapons and marched through the corridors, the gunshots were getting faint, they suddenly heard several silenced gunshots around the corner, they turned to see three tall shapes in crimson robes holding blood red Vintorez sniper rifles.
"oh not these guys again" said Strelok as he and Scar dived out of the way, the Crimson Rain Assassins fired off their magazines, Strelok fired off seven shots, one of the assassins shoulders blew open, blood spraying the area. Scar shot four shots blowing a big hole in another assassins head, Strelok threw his razor, which flew into the remaining assassin's eye causing him to shoot blindly, Strelok ran at him and tackled him, he pulled out Big Ben and fired several rounds into the assassins head.

"what were they doing here?" Scar asked
"doesn't anyone know how to stay dead?" Strelok asked
They turned and continued walking down the corridors, it was getting dark until they saw a large hole blown in the wall, through it led to a rocky tunnel, they walked through the tunnel, support columns came into view, it began to look like a mine. They looked at each other and took there first steps...

Mustang looked at the shut down command center, he checked if the PAs still worked, they did, he activated them, all of them.
"Citizens of Haven, this is it, flee the premises" said Mustang grimly, he flipped a switch and clicked a button.

Strelok and Scar both crept through the tunnel until they saw flashlights, they crept through the shadows then jumped out guns raised.
"hey hey Strelok its us" said Beaver
"okay who made it?" Strelok asked
"about half the population made it out, the rest are still trapped up there" said Buffalo
"or dead" said Scar
"yeah" said Beaver "weren't you in the prison"
"found a way out" said Scar smiling
"okay its the last of us" said Beaver "us and your lovely friends you brought with you, except the barman, no one has seen him"
"the barman is missing?" Strelok asked
"Im right here, someone cleared a nice path for me" said the Barman "when do we get out of this slaughterhouse"
"right now" said Beaver "lets go"
They walked down the tunnel when suddenly they heard a loud explosion, the tunnel began to quake. It was collapsing.
"RUN GO RUN" shouted Strelok as they ran, it seemed to be catching up to them.
"hurry up" shouted Strelok, his suit sadly was not one of the more agile of the exoskeletons, he was lagging behind.
The tunnel caved in fast, they saw a faint light, they noticed it was starting to cave in near the exit, they quickened their pace, they felt a sore pain as they tried to continue running, they were slowing down but they kept running out of sheer will instead of strength, they dived out into the light as the cavern sealed itself. They found themselves in a cellar, they walked outside, into the sunlight. They fell over panting, they looked at each other, sure enough those same people Strelok dragged to the Haven were still alive, so was Beaver and Buffalo, he noticed they were the only ones sitting outside.
"where is everyone?" Stallion asked "weren't we leaving with everyone else"
"we waited a few minutes, they probably split" Beaver guessed
They stood up and looked around,they heard footsteps, they all turned around to see five guns aimed at their heads.
"explain yourselves or die" said an old stalker leading the group
"my god" said Buffalo "Hawk is that you?"
"Buffalo?" the old stalker, Hawk said slowly "we thought you died, back when the military hit that bandit convoy we were in"
"I thought the same, I managed to get away from the explosion cause I tried to save the artifact" said Buffalo holding up a small blue orb, a moonlight.
"how did you get that passed security?" Strelok asked
"I have my ways" said Buffalo "Rabbit, Locksmith, Joker, Viper are those you under those hoods?"
"he got us" said Joker "lets flee to our secret Bat Cave"
"shut up Joker I am sick of your jokes" said Viper
"well this was unexpected" said Rabbit "we thought you were Crimson Rain"
"yeah weve been hunting them, we found several survivors flee into the tunnels" said Locksmith
"we found them" said Scar "they are now a smear on the wall, no worries"
"well that is good news, now we can join the conflict" said Hawk "how about you?"
"the conflict, well I suppose I have been away from Freedom long enough" said Beaver
"sure, I don't mind" said Buffalo
"as long as we end this already" said the Barman "I lost my bar because of this"
"I don't mind it much" said Scar before quickly changing the subject "nice weather"
"okay where to?" Chain asked
"well Freedom is going to try to push America off the mainland, we are going to defend the beaches of Normandy and try to advance across the channel" said Hawk "we went to stop the Crimson Rain before we regrouped
"well" said Beaver "I guess that settles it, lets go to head west"
"you guys go ahead" said Strelok "I have something I need to attend to"
"your leaving before the battle, I thought you wanted to end it" Beaver asked
"I do, but I have more important things to do" said Strelok "good bye" he walked away
"what a bastard" said Storm shaking her head
"agreed" Stallion replied "so shall we leave?"
"might as well" said Beaver "follow them I guess"
They walked westward, it was getting dark...

Maelstrom Part 8 - Fall of Paradise

(Sorry for the small size, I will get the next one up ASAP to make up for it, if I can)

Strelok eyed the stalker movements, he was waiting for an opening, it was getting late. He sleepily looked around, he noticed saw that Freedom was pushing back the US fairly well but it still seemed to be inevitable that they were going to lose. He stared at it blankly until the screen shut off.
"what?" said Strelok hitting the screen, he listened for a moment, he heard it, gunfire "shit"
Strelok ran around the room looking for a weapon, he couldnt find any. He noticed his straight razor, looked like he was going to find the time to use it for once. He opened the door and looked outside, there was a large blood splatter, he noticed several bodies. He crept down the hallways, he heard voices around the corner. He turned the corner to find Beaver and Buffalo taking cover, Beaver had an old Skorpion vz. 61, Strelok saw some of those carried by several stalkers.
"Strelok you alright?" Beaver asked
"fine, what happened?" Strelok asked
"well it seems that some people had a problem with how things are done around here, they broke into several armories and just shot up the place" said Buffalo
"okay where is everyone" Strelok asked
"well, they are either locking themselves in their rooms or running for the tunnels" said Beaver
"the tunnels?" Strelok asked
"its a tunnel connecting to an emergency exit, it was originally planned to be a path to another Haven-like shelter but resources ran low" Beaver answered
"okay heres the plan, you meet me down there, I got somethings I need to do" said Strelok
"what are you going to do, your unarmed?" Buffalo asked
"not for long" Strelok replied "is Armory 6 still secured?"
"yeah but... oh" said Beaver "mind if we join you till their, we could use some weaponry if we are going to go down to the tunnels"
"okay but keep quite" said Strelok
They walked down the hallways, they could hear gunfire and screaming through almost every wall. They carefully walked along the corridors until they saw a big sign, Armory 6, there was a guard standing outside armed with an AKM.
"Ill handle this" said Strelok carefully walking down the hall, the guard was looking the wrong way. Strelok stumbled over a body, the guard turned around aiming at him.
Strelok turned around, he shoved the razor up his sleeve and stuck his arms behind his head, the guard walked closer to him, most likely to cuff him. Strelok pulled out the blade and stabbed repeatedly into the guards neck. Strelok picked up the AKM and signaled the others to come. Strelok took the password to the armory and opened the door, they stared at a room full of guns and suits.
"find your gear and lets get out of here" said Strelok "take extras we will need em"
Strelok looked around before finding his prototype exoskeleton, his fast shooting AK-74 and his desert eagle Big Ben. He grabbed several other side arms. He then noticed something interesting. He walked up to a over and under double barreled shotgun on the wall, a Silver Pigeon. On it had an engraving, Lakota. Strelok grabbed it. He looked around to find something else, he found a heavily scarred AK-47 and suited up.
"okay get to the tunnels, I have something else I need to do" said Strelok

Strelok navigated the corridors, he crept carefully passed several guards, he found the prison area, he carefully crept towards the same detention area he spent the last week. He opened the door, there were five guards. He readied the Fast shooter and fired, the shots shreaded their suits. He moved in and looked into a cell.
"why hello Scar, you still here?" Strelok asked
"Ah Strelok I see you found your revenge" said Scar standing up
"let me get these doors open" said Strelok, he pressed a button and an alarm sounded.
"Warning, Mass Prison Break, guards please secure the prison complex and nearby armories" said the PA
"oh dear" said Strelok passing a Colt 1911 and the AK-47 to Scar.
"well, ready to kick some ass?" Scar asked
"lets do this" Strelok replied, they stepped out, the gunfire intensified.
They walked down the hall towards the armory, Strelok gave Scar time to change into a new suit. They then ran to elevator, both in ExoSkeletons.
They sat silently, the elevator lowered painfully slow, elevator music played as they sat, the gunfire grew louder and louder, the further down they went...

---Somewhere in Russia---
"Lieutenant Colonol I have orders for you" said the Generalissimus
"yes Comrade Generalissimus?" the Lieutenant Colonol asked
"we strike now, assemble the full force, coordinate with the Generals, these are my orders"

---The President---
"well it seams that our enemies are more powerful than we though" said the President looking at the reports
"they seem to be unifying" said the General
"well, get the Maelstrom Project finished, we need to unveil it, that should get them ready, and send in the suit upgrades, hell send in all our upgrades, we need to stall them" said the President
"We shall have them on our next flight" said the General, saluting before leaving the room...
