In an unnamed small village located at the Conomi Islands, activity there was just as normal. The sun was out on this nice day with only a few clouds out, but nothing to instigate rain. It was a perfect day for farming which many of the residence did. Some young children were out, and about playing as most of the adults were off during their daily things while talking among each other. The community here is pretty close, meaning little to no trouble happens here to the point that rarely any Marines are seen within this area as they are mainly up at the main island of Conomi. Unfortunately, a certain group of people have decided to take opportunity of this that will lead to no good. Within the market area of this village where business was booming for most of the stands, a group of five shady individuals would show up, and make their presence known. One of the thugs walked up to a stand, and looked down at the elderly woman who ran it. "Why welcome, dearie. Might I interest you in som-" Suddenly, the woman's stand went flipping over much to her surprise! It was all thanks to said thug who began to laugh as he stomped on her items. This caught the attention of most of others in this area. Some tried to go in closer to see what was going on, but then he was picked up by the collar by one of the other thugs, and thrown into another stand. "THIS IS OUR SPOT NOW!!" one of the thugs yelled, and with that they all started to rampage, breaking what they could get their hands on.
Meanwhile at the Marine base located on the main island. Erik was sweeping the one of the hallways, a typical job given to him as a chore boy. The rookie hummed to himself as he did this, looking down at the floor with a small smile one his face. Nothing much was happening today, so he thought of going out to train again after finishing this. It was then Erik heard footsteps coming from a distance. At first he didn't pay it any mind, but as they grew faster, Erik stopped what he was doing, and looked up at the end of the hall which cut into two directions. Left, and right. A few marines came running from the left to the right. They were obviously in a hurry for something, and even had their weapons out. Erik peaked his head out to see the Marines running into another room. Having his curiosity get the better of him, Erik followed, and peaked his head into some room where a higher ranked Marine was talking to a large group of Ensigns within the room. "Listen, we received an alert from one of the other islands here. Apparently they are under attack from what we gathered. I am not too sure what is going on down there, but we must get down there as soon as possible, and get this under control!" the higher up claimed, leading the others to salute, and yell out "SIR!!" in sync. "SIR!" another voice yelled out shortly after. All of the ensigns within the room then turned around to see Erik at the doorway, saluting their superior with a stern look on his face. "...You stay here, and continue with you chores, Dubois." The higher ranking marine said with a deadpan expression.
Erik slowly placed his hand down, frowning a bit, but quickly shook his head. "But...I can fight too." he clenched his fists, looking down at the floor. "How am I suppose to prove myself...if I'm never allowed get into the action?" The room went silent. The higher up was definitely annoyed since he didn't have time for this. He sighed before saying, "Fine." Erik's head perked up, but before anything could come from his mouth, the marine added one more thing. "But you are only to spectate. That's an order." "Erik once again fell into a frown, but instead of back talking, he bowed as he didn't want to run the risk of the guy changing his mind. With that, the superior turned to the others.
"NOW EVERYBODY, GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, AND LET'S MOVE!"
