"Hey kid wake up"
"Wake up kid"
The "kid" was hunched over in the corner of the ship, drool covering one side of his mouth in the direction his head had fallen. He hadn't even bothered to open his eye's either, talking in a state of half-sleep.
"What? What do you want?"
The other voiced laughed a deep jovial laugh "Kid do you have any idea where you are?"
He straightened his back against the wall and slowly opened his eyes-not caring too much to worry about his present location. "Hell if I know" he said, still in a sleepy stupor "but I guess its where I wouldn't normally want to be"
"Well Hell yeah, and its not so bad if you opened your eyes you lazy *******, at least not until we make it to the station" said the man standing up.
The "kid" opened his eyes, glancing around; he was on a typical army transport flying several hundred feet off the ground. Slowly he bent his knees, then tucked then into his stomach and with one quick motion stood up, feeling a slight blood rush in his head that threatened to reseat him back in his corner. The other man he was with was a mammoth, black, six foot something and at least two hundred fifty plus pounds; he almost looked too big to even fit into his regulation grey Nanite regulated suit. Nanite regulated suits were always worn on higher ranked men in the Altanian army.
"Damn you must have either ###### someone off or been really unlucky in a bar to have woken up here. Don’t feel too bad though, I woke up here just like you two years ago. Whats your name kid?"
"Gus" replied the sleepy civilian.
"Well Gus it looks like you have now been conscripted into the Altanian reserves-don't your feel lucky?" he said while grinning and typing something into a data pad that was integrated into his left forearm armor.
Gus didn't reply, but walked slowly up to the shielded opening on the side of the transport-looking down at the planets surface. It was beautiful in a way, the red dust was sweeping up over a cliff on the red planets surface-in the distance he could see a mining town dug deeply into the side of the cliff, the town, originally grey with blue lights everywhere had been adapted into the world’s style, having a red tint stuck to everywhere. No matter what was put down upon the planets surface, it would always be dyed the color red because of the never ending red dust storms that would rotate around the planets surface. He wasn't sure if he missed the mining town or not-it was a bleak existence living in the work community there. He smiled a grim smile, wondering if his chances of survival were better in the marine reserves.
