Here's my own interpretation of the starting scene and it does NOT relate to the actual game.
I just want to write something.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
Sitting with my legs dangling from the door, I gazed at the desert terrain as it passed by. Brown, clustered smudges of slums dotted the pale landscape, linked together by black lines that are newly-built roads. The hum of the helicopter's rotor drowned the distant rumbles of a lone truck, little more than a speck of dusk, cutting across the empty plains.
"How far is it?" Jim called over the beating of the chopper blades.
"Shut up." Shelly snapped. "I am trying to fly a chopper here."
" 'Bout fifteen minutes and we'll be landing." Riggs replied with a grin. "Be patient, Bull, I know you're kinda cramped."
"Watch it, Toad, or-"
Suddenly the chopper tilted to the side and then a loud CRASH shook the entire craft. Smoke billowed from the side.
"WE'RE HIT!" Shelly yelled over the din.
"There wasn't supposed to any hotspots here!" I shouted.
"We're gonna crash! Brace for impact!"
Something WHOOSHED by the chopper. Judging by the trail of the smoke it was a rocket. I cursed silently.
As the chopper descended to the earth, my first thought was that if I ever found out who's in charge of scouting the area I'll shove a frag down his throat. After I've pulled out the pin.
My second thought, after seeing the rocky ground approaching with alarming speed, was:
This is going to hurt.
