I am a traitor to my planet.
Thousands of hours of training, drills under fire, running laps in the rain to get ready for the expansion off-world. Unloading, cleaning, reloading my gun in under two and a half minutes. Learning which terrain I can move forward in, when I should tell my command to retreat. My muscles are taut and trained to their breaking point. I feel less like a soldier than a machine in my armor; the suit is like a second skin, albeit more unwieldy. I touch the numbered embroidered on my side: 07. I am always one of the first ones out. When we touch down there’s no time to think; I am suiting up and getting ready to deploy as soon as I can.
