Axel slumped into the Pelican, exhaustion overtaking him over as the dropship took off. The injuries on his left arm began to sting, but drifting into numbness as Axel removed his helmet, pushed his head into his palm and shed a single tear for lost comrades, abscent friends and all the destroyed lives. Shedding a tear as he stared through his fingers at the spent Assault Rifle casings by his feet. The mission had failed and he'd hardly got himself out alive, the smoking rifle now lent against the seat where his helmet lay. All was Lost.
