Kayelin’s testing my pupil reflexes and asking me to squeeze her fingers. She’s examining me fleetingly, avoiding my penis. It’s capable of an indefinite erection of 22.95 centimetres in length and 16.19 centimetres in girth. Admittedly, an inconvenient organ, often a problem to deal with. Serves no purpose beyond recreational pleasure. Kayelin appears disinterested. She’s detaching the drip from the cephalic vein port in my right forearm and unshackling me. I’m stepping forward. Pod area is 35.04 square metres. Thermoregulation is kicking in, circulating an agreeable heat around my feet to compensate for the cold floor. Deploying assembler. Builder particles are oozing out of the pores of my skin, swathing me in a pliable black membrane. Hood is fusing to the collar and integrating with the neural display, initialising augmented reality. Should debug the lag and double check the memory stack.11Please respect copyright.PENANA9rdE0sil1N

Configuration is unmodified. Hardly impractical, but not really normal. No traces of cube leakage or bandwidth fading. Latency three percent decayed, memory thrashing. Geomatic software for supplying live mapping and aerial surveillance is repeatedly attempting to access the orbnet, causing a looped queue and a misallocation glitch. Can’t hear any signs of severe weather. Solar winds might be interrupting the handshake, swamping the buffers with warped instructions and a garbled bit stream. Not worth troubleshooting further. Congestion explains the lag, but doesn’t account for a hole in the memory cache. Performance is scarcely exceeding required benchmarks.copyright protection7PENANA9hQ3qatoyf

Should’ve received substantiated intelligence in advance and optimised the settings accordingly. Juventia, vector (15, 11). Mission 04442, rescuing the Cordelian embassy. Cobra-1 punched us in blind on unconfirmed reports of violent resistance. We were still in stasis during the descent, refuelling the batteries, ignorant of the circumstances. On the ground I had the team engage the warrior suit with a bundle of lavish enhancements including swarm deflector shield, cloaking and superfine levitation skill, none of which were necessary. Resources ended up being unduly encumbered and we extricated forty-seven minutes behind schedule; an unacceptable delay, especially when a single millisecond of deviation can put the strategy at risk and reduce success probability to zero. I’d be a poor captain if I allowed even the smallest margin of random chance to dictate the fate of my men. Dual mission with the administrator seems unconventional.copyright protection7PENANARL34tfTw9o

Packet evaluated. A solitary objective, tactically undemanding, but, as suspected, a challenging environment. Mobilising ranger suit. Action particles are spilling out of the assembler and encasing me in composite layers of polymer, gel armour and ballistic rubber. Boots are tightening at my calves. Gauntlets fastening and helmet docking. A momentary freeze in upgrade to plus strength as I perceive the nominal increase in mass. Visor is closing and changing view to 360 degree panoramic. I’m selecting the air-purifying respirator. Not essential, but filtering aerosols at the first opportunity will conserve energy and delegate surplus juice to the accelerators. Navigating to the task partition. Browsing geospatial imagery. A savage and grey place. Should be easy blending in to such a drab landscape.copyright protection7PENANAJYw28LjQZi

Applying sandstone hue to the suit. Stopping adaptive camouflage. Optical instruments are stable. Kayelin’s motioning to a hard protector case fixed to a rack at the back of the pod. Flipping the catches. Equipment is CR-10, the assimilable combat rifle, and MPAP-12, the portable artillery piece affectionately nicknamed ‘Heavy Hail’ by the scout teams. A rudimentary mortar concept encompassed in a typically sensible design; six extendable steel alloy tubes joined to a ruggedised box housing a remote guidance computer. It’s a disposable unit, foldable and carried over the shoulder. I have twelve projectiles, each containing a cluster of thirty kinetic bomblets no bigger than a pistol bullet, but manufactured from ultra dense ruspil. When dropped from the middle of the troposphere a ruspil bomblet will crush a vehicle’s engine block or penetrate twelve metres of flesh and innards, slicing bone in half and burrowing deep into the hulk of the largest animals. Kayelin’s at my side, touching my elbow. An odd gesture. ‘Keep off the radio,’ I’m telling her. Taking the weapons and entering the decontamination chamber. Fire door is sliding shut and gaskets inflating, sealing the pod interior. Outer panel unlatching.copyright protection7PENANAbhGfOrxCn0
