6 flew the dropship back to the mines where the alien hive was and used Lightning Strike's technology to cloak it. 6 looked up in pride at the drops ship and said "I'll name her, Bullet." Aquatica pushed a stretcher that Sharktooth was on. He passed out from some blood loss but was going to make it. Aquatica pulled him into the mine's medical clinic. Once in the clinic Aquatica took out some jars and bandages. She was homeless before she discovered her true calling which gave her a sense of surviving without her powers. Sharktooth's eyes opened slowly "Aquatica?" he croaked as he sat up. "Don't, your not supposed to be moving around. Lie down." He obeyed and laid back on the pillow behind him. "So…we won?" Aquatica nodded. "Yeah, we won."
Komodo and 6 were sitting down in the mess hall together just talking. 6 began "So, you alright?" Komodo nodded "I can regenerate limbs, even organs, I don't even need Aquatica's powers. But I should be okay if that's the answer you want." "Just checking." 6 scooted over to her and said "So, Komodo what was your life like before this happened?" Komodo sighed and said "It was Hell, I was always abused and never got any freedom. I am actually happier now that they did this to me." Komodo looked at 6 curiously, her eyes sparkled with innocence "What was life like for you before this?" 6 shook his head "I didn't have one. They experimented with the Royal Jelly, it has the power to change any drone into a queen. They experimented with it and injected each facehugger used. It was a success. But the subjects remembered the old life they had. Me however, I never really cracked that open. I was only given a number, no name. I felt left out. I felt like one of them, the aliens. They are unclouded from moral consciousness, they think about the hive and the hive only. They had no names, no passion, but it is quite remarkable I admit. I heard it, the voice of the hive ringing in my brain, it is eons old leading to something bigger." Silence was present for a while, then Komodo kissed him.
3 weeks later
The sun is shinning, and Komodo, Sharktooth, Lightning Strike, and 6 were standing and a big field. "I guess this is good bye then." Aquatica said "Thank each and everyone of you." Sharktooth came to Aquatica and said "No, I'm staying." Aquatica aid "Hades is dead, your mission is complete. Face it, your free." Sharktooth said "Free." Aquatica nodded "Free." Sharktooth repeated again and turned his head to the sun. "Free, I am free. I just wish my team was here to be with me." Aquatica patted his back "They are probably in a better place." He shook his head "No, we committed murder, we skinned people and used them as disguises." He pointed to the his skin named Richard. "They are probably burning with Hades." Aquatica was about to speak but then decided not to. Soon only she was left. As the soon went down she stared at a puddle in the ground. When she thought hard it showed all of them together eating dinner. 6 was having coke, Komodo was showing off her bowie knife, Lightning Strike was arm wrestling with Sharktooth, and there was her having a glass of water, smiling and having fun. Aquatica smiled at the picture the puddle made and walked off.
She knew they were the closest things friends could get but the really friendship her mother told her was when you would have to say goodbye.
