"While everyone is repairing the base, you and Ari are inside Ari's room. One person suddenly goes into Ari's room with a frantic state.

"Hey, we have a bad situation here." the person says, "Four broken storage of toxic fume filters have been entirely stolen."

Ari says nothing. She sighs.

"This is the 120th time. What shall we do?"

“What did Commander Rex say?”

“He told us to pack up and hunt the thieves. And…” The person looks intently at Ari.

“He told you not to fail the base anymore.”

Ari sighs.

“I understand that," Ari says to the person. "But for now, let me and my personal crew prepare for the journey."

The person nods and runs away.

"Let's pack things up for our trip," Ari says to you, "be sure to pack your weapons and toxic filters."

You nod, and while taking your electric gun, you quickly pack your things up on your brown backpack and go outside the base. It's still damaged, full of debris. You carefully step through the debris, watching the dirty, dark valley beyond. Another dark cloud swarms through the sky.

Just then, the siren wails again. You are alarmed again. You turn round to see where the zombies are now. Then you see Ari standing right next to you. But she is not looking at you. She looks beyond the dark mound. You turn and gasp.

A huge tank swarm into your base. There are zombies also. You see the base soldiers quickly standing in position. They shoot lasers towards the zombies. They are knocked down. You and Ari attack them also. You shoot guns at the zombies while Ari shoots arrows at them with amazing force.

But just then... The tank shoots a huge bomb... You look it coming closer and closer... You run as fast as you can... You hold Ari and pulls her out of the base... And then...

BOOM. A loud explosion comes behind you. You lie down while covering your face with your hands.

You and Ari had safely escaped the base. You turn back. The base is now completely destroyed. You learn you could never return it back. You turn round to see if there are any survivors. None. Everyone is dead, covered in blood. Just then, you see a commander named Rex coming towards you and Ari.
Ari gasps a little and runs towards Rex to help him. His arm and his leg is badly wounded.

"This will be one of our hardest times," Ari says, with tears in her eyes, "but we shall not let this end."

As she speaks, you hear a sound of shouting and cheering on the right side. You turn.

There are the survivors, 20 of them - cheering and shouting to you, Ari and the commander that they had survived and found a new shelter. Ari shots by you and runs to the small building. You quickly follow Ari, helping Commander Rex.

“Since you have showed some success,” Rex tells to Ari, “I will let you once to lead the base army.”

Ari's face slowly lit up.

“But if you fail,” Rex says, “you will be banished out of base forever.”

Ari nods with confidence, and turns to the others.

"Our base has died," Ari says, "but it's now revived. Let us safely protect our base, and also grow our strength to survive this catastrophic world. Let us go to the Base E and bring back our filters."

JessieYun responds:

Hi RemileOduen!

Thanks so much for the review! Glad you enjoyed the track. ;)
Keep tuned in!

I was waiting for an alamr to show up in one of the pieces on this series and yeeey it did) I love the tension building up and the ending is very fitting. That transition at 2.33 kinda came out of nowhere though, it was too sudden imo. Everything else sounds just right, keep up the great work!

JessieYun responds:

Hi Alex,

Thanks so much for the detailed review! Glad you enjoyed it! Keep tuning in!
