Sorry for the late update.

So, anyway, I figured that with the passing of 10 years medical science wouldn't be the only thing that advanced. So just think of the current Knightmares as being 12th generation and having the same basic colors as the older models. I know that logically that's not too much since in the anime left off with them being 8th generation or so, but I have a reason. The anime ended with world peace. The only official fighting force being the Black Knight, their duty to keep the peace and only act to intercede with a ratified resolution from a majority vote of the United Nations. This of course meant that while they would still occasionally go into battle, it wasn't that often. With that being the case, there wasn't much reason to push the limits of weapon & knight-mare frame technology too much. To put it more simply: without the necessity caused by constant war there was no reason to push the advancement of inventions for war.

The com = the communications device

The B.K = Black Knights

The R.A = Rebels of the Aristocracy

Chapter 4:

.

"Damn it! There's no end to them!" Kallen shouted. "We need some reinforcements!"

She moved as one with her Knightmare. Together they danced, dodged, leapt, and struck down enemy Knightmares. As one of the greatest Knightmare pilots in the Black Knights she blazed like an orange comet across the battlefield, her predatory Guren MK-12 Nine Elements all but unstoppable.

Unfortunately both pilot and frame had been fighting for some time now and were beginning to run out of energy.

"Just hold on a bit longer," the communication (author: I'm just going to call this "the com" ok) replied. "We're moving to sector 7 and need you to run interference. Head back to base in 30 minutes for re-fueling."

"Roger that, see you in 30."

This once prosperous city was now a rubble filled battlefield. The fountains destroyed, bridges collapsed, the once mighty skyscrapers, fallen & hollowed out. To look down upon this site from a distance it would appear that a war of blue and black fleas was taking place. If fleas were capable of causing explosions, hopping across buildings, and flying on energy wings of blue and red, that is. The black garbed forces of the Black Knight swarmed and maneuvered against the light-blue of the enemy rebels. Although the rebels had originally been out numbered at the start of the battle, time and tactics had taken their toll on the peace-keeping forces of the Black Knights. Now the two sides were evenly matched in numbers. It was obvious to everyone that unless Britannian support arrived within the next hour or less the Rebels of the Aristocracy (author: I'm calling them "the R.A" for short, got that?) would win. The closest Britannian support was currently an hour and a half away, they were also under attack.

Kallen was exhausted, sweating and panting as she finished of the last of the R.A enemy in her immediate area. Swiftly taking cover behind a collapsed building she paused to catch her breath and look over the current deployment of forces on the scanner. She was just about to move out when the com suddenly crackled with a burst of static and a calm strangely familiar voice began to speak.

.

"It's been a long time Kallen. I want to thank you for honoring my last request. Will you accept my assistance once again?"

.

"Who is this? What are you talking about?" She demanded.

.

"Surely you remember the last true words I spoke to you, as myself, without wearing a mask."

.

Her mind froze. Her heart skipped a beat. No. It was impossible. There was no way it could be him. Not even HE could do this. There was NO WAY this was real.

.

"I said: 'Kallen, live.'"

.

Impossible! She'd never mentioned that to anyone. She felt her eyes start to water and a painful tight feeling grew in her chest. She quickly dashed away her tears and took several deep breaths to calm down.

"It's impossible. You can't be him. I was there. I SAW him die."

.

"But it is me. I make the impossible possible. I kept all my promises. Besides, how could I stay in my grave when Empress Nunnally was in danger and the peaceful world I worked so hard to create was about to shatter?"

.

It was him; Lelouch. It couldn't be anyone else. As impossible as it was for that voice to be his, it was even more impossible for those words to have been spoken by anyone else.

"How can I trust you? What do you want?"

.

"Humph. You once said that you could never believe in me, only in the mask I wore. I'm wearing it again. I am prepared to wear this mask for the rest of my life. I promise you. As for my wants, that should be obvious. I want to CRUSH the R.A and make the world peaceful again."

.

"I see."

Her voice was calm and level. Kallen was proud that she'd managed that.

If it was really him, Lelouch, then that was obviously what he would want. Then again, considering the sort of things he was capable of and had done in the past, could she really risk being this happy that he was somehow alive?

.

"Kallen, I know that this is a surprise. I'm willing to speak with you privately and tell you everything latter. But now is not the time."

.

His voice now took on the familiar commanding tone that she remembered from so many past battles. It was the voice she had trusted with her life and followed with out question.

.

"Kallen, Q1, if you want to win follow my orders."

.

She knew that this was probably the craziest thing she could possibly do. It was surely pure madness to knowingly follow him again.

But Kallen had missed Lelouch. The guilt and regret she'd felt when he'd died had never really left her. She'd often wondered what would have happened if she had not stopped trusting him. That he had had to die before she could at last understand his plans and regain her faith had been a burden she'd never forgiven herself for.

If this was somehow really Lelouch, she had another chance. She was going to take it. The details could wait till latter.

"Yes Sir! What do you want me to do?"

.

"Q1, contact the base and persuade them to turn the command over to me. The enemy might be experts of tactics, but I am a master of strategy. If everyone follows my orders we can defeat them."

.


.

The last of the R.A forces moved into position. They didn't understand what had happened. One moment they were steadily pushing the B.K's (author: B.K =Black Knights) back with certain victory in their sights and the next moment they were suddenly on the defensive. Every move countered and every ambush a trap. They had no choice now but to retreat.

.


.

~ BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! ~

.

"Ha Ha Ha Ha HAAA!"

Lelouch laughed loudly to himself. After re-checking the scanners he activated the com and in his most commanding voice announced: "The enemy is no more. All obstacles are clear. Proceed to point 4 sector 10 for rondaivue. See to the wounded and any surviving prisoners. The rest of you re-fuel and restock supplies. In 10 minutes we head out to the relief of the Britannian support Unit."

.

The Black knight didn't know who was giving them their orders; however with Captain Kallen Kouzuki backing up the commands and their sudden miraculous victory, much of their worry was allayed. The orders made sense and time was short. They would go to fight now and get the facts after.

.


.

YES! Got it done. I wanted to put more in, but I got stuck. Once I realized that I couldn't go further in this chapter, I knew that it was this or nothing. I don't know much about Mecha type stuff or writting action, so hopefully you all will be understanding about how this turned out. Hope you all liked it.

Please review.
