Chapter 57 – Expedition

= Two days later =

Volunteers and mechs from Zeris, Balam, and Tautog squad assembled on the wasteland in front of their base's secret entrance .

The Balam squadron possessed a standard five-mech team and fifty support infantry soldiers . Their mechs were painted in blue, and their symbol was a three-headed demon . One head was the head of a man, the second was a ram, and the third head was a bull .

This squadron was a part of the main force of this base . Because of the abundant resources that they gained from this privilege, their soldiers and their mech's equipment were on par with the local government's military .

The Tautog squad's captain was the bald man, who had given Misha a yellowfin tuna . He cast away his former human name and changed it to Dolphin .

Tautog team was a 12-mech team, which was the largest expedition team among all squads . The support infantry soldiers consisted of 100 men and women with the age range of 19 to 40 . The insignia of this squad was as its name, the tautog fish .

However, this team was nicknamed by other main teams as "The Lizardmen Squadron" as all members in his squad had scales as skins . Furthermore, the Tautog members and Balam squad did not seem to be that friendly with each other . The eyes of the "Lizardmen" glared at the Balam team with hatred while several of the Balam members smirked at the Tautogs .

Thorn and his repaired robot remained on the elevator bridge, getting the last check-up before the deployment . This Zeris team was known among his pilot colleagues as the one-man-squad as Thorn did not need a wingman to maim any of the local government's mech team .

No one dared to mock this weed-addicted pilot as all soldiers in the base considered his skills as one among the best .

Crystal also joined this expedition, but she stayed behind in her truck .

At the front bullet seat beside Crystal, Misha sat there, blinking and fidgeting .

Seeing Misha's nervousness, Crystal laughed, "Take it easy . Since this is your first time, I'll let you observe what the others do before you can get out there for real . "

Misha nodded and gulped .

The windshield of Crystal's truck had seven monitors embedded into the glass . As Misha looked at the monitor, she could see the position of all infantries and the mechs .

A satellite map displayed the geography of the wasteland in real-time . Misha could even see the bases of Mafdet Federation from Crystal's front monitor .

Crystal adjusted the speaker on the front console and began giving commands .

"Attention, all units . We have two objectives today . First, we have located a matured queen egg 154km east of our location . Balam squad will escort the harvester division into the queen's mouth . As for Zeris and Tautog squadrons, you will have to protect the queen egg from the Mafdet Army . Be warned that otherworlders are getting actives these days . If you find one, light a flare and retreat . Balam Squad will be in charge of fighting the otherworlders in this scenario . "

"Aye, Sir!"

"Aye, Boss!"


The squad captains replied . At the same time, their facecam revealed their cockpit and their face on Crystal's monitor, which confirmed their status .

The captains could also see the face of Crystal and Misha, who sat beside her .

Seeing Misha's face, Dolphin flinched .

'That girl from the market? What is she doing over there with the chief?'

Curious, Dolphin coughed and pressed the mic button .

"Sir, do you mind if I ask something out of the mission?"

"Ask away . "

"Who is the girl beside you?"

"A new member of Zeris squad . I put her here to observe your performance as a part of her training . Be sure to give her a good impression of your performance . I don't want any of you to reveal your derpiness in front of a newbie . "

Thorn and Balam captain laughed, but Crystal and Misha could not hear the laughter as they did not press the communication button .

Dolphin had a wry smile on his face . He thought that Misha was an unfortunate girl without enough gels to buy fishes for her partner . He scratched his bald head and chuckled .

'Well . I guess treating a newbie a tuna isn't half-bad either . She should have gotten stronger with that fish . Even if my men or I had eaten that fish, it would have been only a normal meal . '

Dolphin shrugged . He did not take the matter to heart .

"Alright, chief . Please tell the girl, if she becomes rich, please pay me back later . "

Hearing the comment of her subordinate, Crystal turned to Misha . She did not forget to turn off the mic .

"Did you do something to him?"

"A-Ahaha . I went to the market, and he gave me a tuna . He thought that I didn't have enough gels to buy a fish for Tama . "

*Mew!* (He's a good dude! Me like!)

Crystal burst into laughter and patted Misha's head, "Did you seduce him or what? Are you looking for a sugar daddy?"

Misha wanted to retort that she did not interest in men because her real gender was male, but she could not say it out loud . Instead, Misha's face reddened from the embarrassment and helplessness . Because of her reaction, Crystal's laughter intensified .

"Okay, Misha . I know that you're young, but that's something you should not be hasty . Unfortunately, you can't have him since he already has a wife . If you are still looking for a good man, I can introduce you to a couple of good-looking hunks . But that has to wait after the mission, alright?"

Crystal winked .

Misha widened her eyes in shock . That was a misunderstanding!

As much as Misha wanted to retort, she was afraid that her two-body secret might expose . In the end, she flustered and waved her hands around like a mental patient without speaking a word .

'It's vexing, but shutting my mouth is the best action here . '

All mechs departed from the base as the vanguard while the convoy of foot soldiers sat inside their vehicles, following after the robots .

Two hours after the departure, everyone arrived at the 12-meter-tall queen egg . Just like the queen that ate Misha, this one also attracted a thousand of zombies around it .

However, this one did not rest in a crater . Instead, it stood tall on the open field .

Crystal pressed the speaker, "Balam squad . Take the harvesters getting on top of the queen . Zeris and Tautog . Secure the perimeter . I don't want to see a surprise attack from Mafdet or wandering mutants . No matter what happens, do not provoke the zombies around the queen . "

20 Members of the harvester division got out of their vehicles . Each of the men had a parachute on their back . Strangely, they only wore old underwear, but they carried a pistol, which was enveloped with a bag made of their intestines . Their tentacle partners shoved the bag inside their stomach to avoid the digestive fluid from the queen and waited for their turns .

Five Balam mechs carried the twenty men on their palms . They leaped over the queen without harming it, and the 20 harvesters jumped off the mechs .

All of them activated their parachutes, as well as their [Pheromone] skills .

The queen noticed the smell and opened its mouth . Tentacle tongues extended and grabbed all of the harvesters into the egg .

Misha could see everything from the beginning to the end from the monitors inside the truck .

Looking at the tasks of these harvesters, Misha gasped .

"Have they been eaten? Wait, they …"

Crystal grinned, "They're the harvesters . Their job is to infiltrate into the queen's wombs and gather the gels that she produces for her offspring . They will also have to kill all alpha eggs inside before the queen spit them out . "

"But won't they be in danger? The last time I was inside, the queen launched me to the sky . "

"They'll be fine . All of the harvesters can self-regen, and they're trained to handle the fall damage . We'll also provide them support when the cocoon lands, so none of them will be in danger . The only worries they can have is that they might get killed inside the wombs because they will have to survive alone . "

The group surrounded the queen for half a day without provoking the monsters and the thousand green zombies . Dolphin's team and Thorn patrolled the area as they killed all the monsters they found .

The sky darkened, and the moon became visible .

It was already 9 PM .

The queen trembled and opened her mouth .

Many cocoons flew out of the monster's mouth in succession .

Crystal widened her eyes and pressed the speaker button, "All units . Assist the harvesters! They're coming out!"

Zeris and Balam mech units rushed to the possible landing areas while the infantries checked their gears on last time . All soldiers put on their night goggles, getting ready for possible night combat .




Misha had been counting . The queen had shot 19th cocoon out of her mouth .


The 20th cocoon came out .

The egg monster closed her mouth and stopped moving, returning to sleep and allowing itself to be nibbled by green zombies .

Misha exclaimed, "Amazing . Are they all our harvesters?"

Crystal stared at the satellite map with a frown, "I hope so . "

"Eh? What's wrong?"

"All queens usually send out two to five eggs at a time . This one shot out 20," Crystal glared at the gigantic egg queen, "Misha, you might have to fight today . "

While Misha was puzzled by Crystal's serious tone, Dolphin's face appeared in the monitor .

"Chief . We've got a company . "

On the edge of the broadcasting satellite map, black dots were moving toward them at a speed of 150km/hour .

Crystal zoomed in the get a better night-time visual . As she had expected, they were the Mafdet soldiers .
