The Fall of Vallock: Part 15“Alright, let’s get down to business.”As the last ranking member entered the impromptu meeting room, a small office that had been left relatively undamaged from prior fighting, Captain Del Rio began his briefing with his fellow officers and senior NCO’s of the mixed Amerian and Elysian force. Not wasting any time, the firm captain quickly went about the current situation as well as what high command expected them to accomplish, despite the prior incident that had occurred which killed off several key players of the operation. They’re not going to like this either, he thought, calmly looking at the worn-out faces of those that currently accompanied him. “As you all know, this space elevator is the only accessible route that the Home Guard currently has in regards to getting to the CSS Fermi and occupants inside.
