The Fight for Justice

As if in a dream, bullets were flying past me in fast, swift motions trying to hunt me down. "Ahhh...." "Helppppp!!" The desperate screams of dying soldiers were heard as they were being shot down into the blood-stained dirt. I, Ryan Baker had joined the state guard to avenge the death of my family members and of my best friend, John who have been murdered by the national army. It is year 2100 and the United States government was lead by the national army, which is not only in complete chaos but is filled with corruption as well. The only obstacle hindering the national army to take over and dominate the country were the state guards. As a guard, I fully devoted my life and mindset to the betterment of the country in every single battle I was assigned too. Although I knew that I could die in a split second, I felt the fulfillment of my life in fighting for the good, the state guards, and trying to destroy the evil, the national guards.

In this mission, our crew had been designated to rescue the hostages that were held captive by the malicious national army. Although our mission was near impossible, my comrades and I hoped for the best and just prayed for luck. To complete the operation, we have to first cross a hilly landscape to get near the enemy. Then, we have to sneak into their base, set a bomb, liberate the hostages, and run back into our base. To top all of this, the bombing has to be done towards the evening so we can be hidden in the shadows that will prevent them from killing us. Their base is a circular building that has fires shooting at us from each level.
