Death of Noble Six
I watched among the pink sunset.
The sun dipping below the rosen skys, giving the clouds that filled that rosen sky their color.
I imagined Her birds, flying into that bask of light.
Hell, if I wasn't on duty, or in the UNSC's military power... I definately enjoy Her bask of glory.
But not just me who's gonna be with me... I want all of Noble Team to see this magnificent beauty.
Also, minus this hellish war. The Covenant, the destruction, and everything that that religious group of aliens they brought upon.
But there's nothing that could be done. I wish that I just could reverse time before the Covanent attacked Reach, but I cannot change physics of space, and time.
Everything has been done.
The attacks of both Inner and Outer Colonies, the deaths of millions that the Covenant has committed, and...
The deaths of my Spartan brothers and sisters.
Especially the deaths of Noble Team.
My heart still aches because of this...
We gave our best shot, but it was ju

The Death of Carter
Both me and Emile ran as fast as we could go.
After managing to dodge two Covenant Scarabs and taking out yet another squadron of Covenant forces of Grunts, Jackals, Brutes, and a Wraith tank...
We just cannot stop.
Because there is one reason - we are very close to our destination.
But to me, it feels like that we going to utterly fail the mission...
Ever since leaving Carter on the almost-destroyed Pelican that we used to be on, my heart was telling me that I should have refused his word and helped him.
But since he's the Commander and Noble Team's Leader, I cannot disobey his direct order, no matter how much I want to.
But from Dr. Halsey order herself, I am entrusted to deliver and safeguard the extremely most important package.
She had trusted me with a very smart A.I.
Which this A.I holds as much weight as Halsey herself... or even greater.
As we continued our run through the entrance of the cave, my comm emitted some static before Carter's voice ca

The Departure of Jun
I watched the pinkish hue of Her sunset.
Ever so beautiful...
I wish that I could sit among the grassy hills of Reach and bask myself in Her glorious warmth waves of sunlight.
Remove my MJOLNIR armor and also bask my very pale skin among the glorious waves.
I wished that we all could do this, if we aren't in any UNSC or ONI personnel content...
Especially for Noble Team.
As we, including our 'very prized' doctor, Dr. Halsey, walked through the big tunnel of the hangar towards the two docked Pelicans that they sit upon.
I glanced at Jorge's dogtags that are wrapped around my right wrist...
My heart still aches since after that mission.
And now with the death of Kat, Noble Team's co-leader and intelligence specialist...
Noble Team is slowly, but surely falling apart...
One by one.
As we reached the opening of the hangar, I reached my hand around to my back and felt a long cylinder that was attached to the lower back of my MJOLNIR armor.
I was assigned to p

Death of Kat
I leaned back against the wall.
My mind throbbed over these past hours.
These missions are starting to take a massive toll on me.
I breathed in and out...
I looked around the room that the rest of Noble Team have been holding out in.
I can see Carter, Noble's leader, staring out at the almost-completely ruins of New Alexandria...
I can see Kat, Noble's co-leader and intelligence specialist, working her way on fixing with a comm unit...
I can see Jun, Noble's best sniper, watching for movement with a pair of binoculars within the ruins...
I can see Emile, Noble's assault specialist, sharpening his kukri against his shoulder armor at the other side of us...
There is one more Noble that should have been here.
And that's Jorge, Noble's heavy weapon specialist...
Ever since Operation: UPPERCUT, my heart was hurting me.
Ever since his loss, I just wanted revenge to those who sent us on that suicide mission!
But a mission is a mission... and we must carry them o

Death of Emile
I watched as the last remaining Brute Chieftain drop to the rain-soaked pavement with various bullet wounds embedded into it's flesh.
Even with the last of the Covenant forces on the landing pad were killed, but my senses were still telling me that there are bound to be more of them.
And my instincts were telling me soon... very soon that they'll come.
I release the clip of my M392 DMR and refreshed it with a new one, readying myself if the Covenant bound themselves to show up.
I could feel the landing pad vibrate as Emile fired the Mass Driver into the oncoming Banshees, blowing them out of Her sky.
One by one...
As my gaze drifted towards the oncoming Pelican, the Pelican that's holding the UNSC's most highly skilled strategist and inspirational leader among the their Navy;
Captain Jacob Keyes.
As the Pelican landed on the landing pad and opened the back hatch, I could see three Marines and the Captain himself.
I placed the M392 DMR onto the back of my MJOLN

Death of Jorge
I stood motionless.
The barrel of my MA37 smoked, leaving tendrils of fading wisps in the air.
And I stood, barely making a sound.
Ever since the last of the Covenant forces in the hangar bay of the Covenant Corvette, The Ardent Prayer, everything's gone too quiet.
I barely made any sound, barely made any movement...
Nor I barely breathed...
I both watched my motion-tracker and the shadows of each and every corner that filled this hangar bay.
And I could feel the sweat crawling down my brow, and each and every part of my body has gone intense.
Because there is this one thing that always clicked in my mind:
I have a bad feeling about this.
But to my relief and surprise, I can hear my COM emitting some static before Jorge's voice ringed out, "Six, meet me back at the Pelican."
It was my only response.
I made one last sweep across the area and checking the motion-tracker before I can confirm myself that its all clear.
With that out of the way, I made my w
