    That is much better, Alexander, but don't let a small victory go to your head.


    The sound of Alex's own breathing was louder than he remembered. Sweat clung to the insides of his gloves as his blood ran hot while he watched his Ginover's 30mm cannon make its mark, disabling the enemy J-8.

    However, Alex was far from done. The other plane, which had avoided Ryoko, had passed him, and it would take little effort for him to bring it into his sights. However, one glance at his radar was all he needed to realize that he would be making a big mistake. All of the enemy forces had retreated past the border.

    Alex slowly steadied his breathing, sipping instead of gulping his breaths. He was glad he muted his microphone, otherwise his breathing would most assuredly annoy his wing mate. Speaking of his wing mate, Ryoko pulled her Gripen up next to his Ginover and matched speeds, asking if his plane was okay.

    Hund
    << Thank you, Steel. The paint's chipped, but I believe my plane will fly again. >>


    Alex looked off into the distance, noting the many allied planes that were returning. Were it not for the unique paint scheme of Eisern squadron, he would not be able to pick them out from the rest of the airframes.


    Hund
    << Yup, it's time to RTB. >>


    With that, he reclined in his seat, gently keeping his Ginover alongside Ryoko's Gripen as they made their way back to base.

    Abyss and Infinity Team were mildly relieved when the Verusean Fighters had removed themselves from the fight and began to beat the retreat that the rest of the Fighters had begun to follow. However, the key word was mildly. They only managed to scratch one of the planes, meaning their pay was going to be miniscule at best. However, at the same time, the ambush had put them on their back foot… so the fleeing Veruseans weren’t the worst sight to see in their book in the end. Abyss then called in.
     
    Abyss
    <<How’re we doing?>>
     
    Holmes
    <<All fine, sir.>>
     
    Robin
    <<Ditto, sir.>>
     
    Abyss
    <<Roger, lets join a flight then and head home…>>
     
    Holmes
    <<You know… I was looking for a fatter payout then this…>>
     
    Abyss
    <<Don’t worry, we’ll get our turn. Remind me to ask HQ to send over Infinity 4… that should probably prevent that mess.>>
     
    Holmes
    <<Roger.>>
     
    With that, Infinity Team streaked across the sky and without a further word joined Ryoko and Steel as they began their approach with Eisern Team.
     
    Meanwhile…
     
    Arthur watched in silence as the Verusean Fighters broke off from the furball and were making a mad dash for the border. The adrenaline was telling him to take the chance to knock one last fighter out of the sky before they reached Verusean Sovereign Airspace, his discipline told him to disengage. His index finger, millimeters from the trigger, relaxed after a moment’s hesitation and joined the rest of its numbers in a normal grip on the control stick. He was no mercenary… there would be no honor in shooting a fellow pilot in the back after the battle was decisively over, no matter the reason. Reminding himself quietly of his duty, he heard Anthony call out:
     
    Spatz
    <<Okay, who’s not dead?>>
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<Anthony….>>
     
    Spatz
    <<Sorry Boss.>>
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<All Eisern Numbers, sound off.>>
     
    Katze
    <<Five here, no worse for wear.>>
     
    Spatz
    <<Glad you care, not a scratch on the God of–>>
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<Cut it, battle’s done, rebury your sense of humor if you please.>>
     
    Spatz
    <<….*mumbling sounds*….>>
     
    Trixi
    <<You know enabling their bragging is gonna get them killed… Arthur… and I’m alright.>>
     
    Katze
    <<Don’t take it seriously! That fight was a real pain. All joking aside, better check if the IRIS-T’s software is in working order.>>
     
    Arthur pulled his visor up and rubbed his face with a free hand. He knew Trixi was right… allowing them to openly mock their opponents like this will most definitely get the better of them in the future. He knew why they did it too… he did it first over Sapin. He led by example, and now it was coming back to haunt him… thought not to the extent it could have been. Still… he made a mental note to try working on their discipline in the air. Suddenly, he noticed on radar two fighters were approaching slowly from the rear… Alexander and Ryoko and the mercenaries of General Resources.
     
    Spatz
    <<Well look at that, Hund made it back.>>
     
    Trixi
    <<Sheiss, look at his plane…>>
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<The Ginover was designed to brawl with Eagles and Flankers… but it’s still just a machine. Machines aren’t gods, despite the famous saying. I’m just glad he’s still in one piece.>>
     
    Spatz
    <<You can say that again! YO, HUND! PLAY US A TUNE WILL YA?! We can’t leave the battle without a tune to play us out!>>
     
    Then suddenly, a guitar riff began to play over Eisern’s frequency, or maybe it was ARIA’s shared line… Arthur wasn’t quite sure at this point. However, he knew the song anywhere as the vocalist kicked in… it was Side of the Coin. Closing his eyes briefly, he smiled and called in Horus Eye.
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<Horus Eye, have all hostiles retreated?>>
     
    Horus Eye
    <<Confirmed, All Hostiles have retreated or been eliminated. Mission Accomplished.>>
     
    Wanderfalke
    <<Roger. Eisern Team, and Steel… let’s head home.>>
     
    Spatz
    <<Good, my ass is sore!>>
     
    Katze
    <<Arthur, can I shoot him down now?>>
     
    Arthur
    <<…..>>
     
    Trixi
    <<…Home.>>
     
    With that, the fighters took up a diamond formation and began to turn and join the rest of the returning ARIA Aircraft. The battle… won.
