Delak had landed and was on his way to meet up with the two troopers when he saw everyone come under fire. He watched as Shadow was almost hit and then watched her start sniping enemy troopers with the help of the force. She was a brilliant marksman with the sniper rifle. Delak saw Eether give the thumbs up to attack. The troopers started to move in and Eether was moving in with Shadow giving cover and Lucyeth and Kazuki moving in Lightsabers drawn. Suddenly someone opened up with an E-Web blaster emplacement and started mowing down the troopers that were moving in. He watched as they took cover behind whatever snow bank they could find. Friendlies were dying left and right and then Eether was trying to motivate the men and started to move up with his lightsaber drawn and he saw Lucyeth do the same. Both were pushing back blaster bolts one after another deflecting them into walls and snow banks and whatever flesh it met from the enemy troops. It was at that moment the enemy saw its chance and fired a rocket in between Lucyeth and Eether exploding on the ground in between them spewing shrapnel all over the ground hitting both members of the house. Delak watched them go down and felt out with the force and didn’t detect any life in them. Everyone started to go down when Shadow called for the retreat.
Delak snapped to and noticed he was still at the landing pad near his ship. He had just touched down when he had gone into a haze. He realized immediately the sensation was the same as it always was. This was the future. He had a distinct power of foresight which he had learned to focus over the years. He could only see things that were going to happen shortly into the future not enough to see the big picture of the future but enough to have saved his life a dozen times over. He has learned that if he focuses enough he can see twenty to the thirty minutes in the future.
“Eether you cannot start your attack on the base yet. Pull back and wait for me to reach my position behind the base.” Delak called out on the communicator.
“Delak?” Eether questioned.
“I have just seen that you and Lucyeth will not make it and half of our forces get wiped out before getting into the base. You need to pull just out of blaster range and wait for me to explore this ice crevice that we are heading for. Then we can see where that leads.” Delak finished.
“Alright Delak, is this the whisper of the future? I know how you get when you have those visions.”
“Yes and you should trust me on this. They have E-Web emplacements and rocket troopers that our intel didn’t show. That’s how you go down.”
“Alright then we will not allow this to happen, Eether out.”
Eether began pulling the troops back just out of range to await the attack signal as Delak jumped on his speederbike and headed for the rear of the base.
It took him 15 minutes to reach his destination but when he did he could already see the two troopers waiting for him. Both looked to be Special Forces they were armed to the teeth. Delak signaled to the troopers and began his crawl through the ice crevice. It was a tight squeeze but it was manageable ever with his tall stature and the armor that the troopers were wearing. After a few minutes of ducking and crawling in some spots of the area the group found the end of the line. It appeared that the crevice ended with a sharp rise and a flat spot in the ice.
“It appears i’ve reached a dead end with an ice wall. I am going to try something,” he said to the troopers. They nodded in agreement and with a snap hiss his crimson blade sprung to life. The heat given off by the blade started to melt the ice in the wall. Delak thrust the blade into the ice melting a bit of it and discovered that the ice melted very well. Well enough it seemed to expose what he was looking for the back door of the base.
“Eether this is Delak. Get ready for a firefight. You will know when to attack.”
“Delak, received we will wait for your signal.”
Delak melted enough ice to make a man size hole in it. Then he started to melt the wall of the base that he had found. The durasteel melted like butter on hot toast and when he was done with the hole the metal wall he had cut out fell to the ground. Peering inside there was no one in the immediate vicinity. The three moved in with the troopers in a standard spread pattern. Delak walked to the only door in the room and reaching out with the force could sense two enemy troopers and a Dark Jedi coming his way. Waiting for the three to pass and lowering his force sense as to avoid detection was simple. Then it happened, Delak lept out with his lightsaber drawn severing the head from the Dark Jedi with his troopers in tow shooting at the enemy forces while he deflected a few blaster bolts.
“Eether in case you didn’t hear that, we are in.”
