Admiral Wil stepped up in his ship. 13 H.I.P cruisers had come to the system of Ben. It would be the most massive invasion of the war. “ALL UNITS FIRE AT WILL!!” Wil screeched. “But not me of course,” he added. The Gold Alliance ships opened fire at the H.I.P. The H.I.P deployed their gunships to the system. Fighters stormed out of the ships and attacked the opposing cruisers. The Gold Alliance blockade was holding. But the gunships managed to get through.
On the system, Oliver and the Battle Bears rallied their troops. Huggables would be landing any second. Suddenly a roar streaked the air. The huggable gunships were landing. Cannons began to fire. Too many huggable gunships reached the surface. Chaos erupted across the beautiful skies of Ben. The B-1000 was firing his Bearail gun. An explosion came from one the main power generators. A direct hit. It exploded all over the Gold Alliance troops.
Captain Alamo was sent with a small squad of troops to the H.I.P landing base. His suqad was to blow up the area so that no more gunships could land. Along the way, the ran into Rho and Sanchez. “Fire at will!” Alamo ordered. Sanchez’s bind gun killed four troopers and Rho broke the necks of two. Suddenly, Alamo was the last one. Before he could fire Rho picked him up and threw his gun away. He slammed his fist into Alamo’s stomach before throwing the lifeless creature away.
Oliver’s platoon was fending well on their flank. Huggables were attempting to cross the main bridge into the base. Not a single huggable even made it past half mark. Huggable tanks, however, did pound Oliver’s soldiers. Their tanks, however, were also pummeling the enemy troops. Before long, all the huggables lay dead across the bridge.
Astoria was leading a sniper group covering Riggs’s position. Riggs’s tanks were all gone so Astoria and her troops were to provide cover. The plan worked and just 50 of Riggs’s 500 soldiers were killed or wounded.
Wil was doing well in space. Nothing was able to penetrate the blockade besides the gunships. Ten cruisers had been destroyed when Rho decided to retreat.
Rho, Sanchez, and the B-1000 boarded a stolen Pelican’t and left the system, abandoning all their huggables. Riggs and Oliver tracked the Pelican’t to the Huggable Planet. They decided to embark there and destroy Rho once and for all. Since the huggable fleet around Huggable Planet was too strong, they decided to take only four soldiers, Astoria, Wil, Graham, and themselves. The end of the war is soon Oliver thought. It will be… it will be…
