Chapter 44: The war in Europe 9: The battle of Vienna.
The soldiers blast open doors and enter the buildings to clear them out. The streets were silent and no one in sight. Luke looked out the window of the jeep. The silent streets made him feel nervous. The jeep was farther in than the soldiers and alone. A rocket sends the jeep rocking sideways as it crashes into a empty car right behind it. Luke, Samantha and the drive quickly get out of the jeep. From the corner of his eye he can see enemy movement then can the sound of another rocket fired. Luke grabs Samantha and both of them jump through the window and quickly duck right below the windowsill.
The jeep takes full hit and explodes into a huge fireball. The driver burns to death. The two became temporarily deaf and couldn't tell what's happening. The dust blinded their eyes. Something hard crashed on the outside and peoples shouts came louder but couldn't tell if it's the enemy or his men. A few outlines of people appear in the dust. Someone grabs Luke by his arms and drags him outside. The ringing in his ears slowly dissipates and is replaced by sounds of gunshots and explosions. Water gets splashed on his face unexpectedly. He coughs out the water that went in his mouth and clears his face.
He quickly looks around to see himself being surrounded by his own soldiers. Many of the cars were up in flames while some buildings were half destroyed. A Blue Fighter plane has crashed on the road. Its wings were demolished. More soldiers drag Samantha out of the debris. She's yelping in pain. One of her arms is in a weird angle. They splash water in her face just as they did to Luke. He staggers up and tries to get to her but a wave of pain came to his head.
"Sir, you need to rest! You've taken a severe blow to your head." One of the soldiers said.
"What's wrong with her?" He asked.
"A broken arm by the looks of it." The soldier replied.
"What happened here?" he questioned the soldier.
"You're jeep has taken heavy fire by the enemy. We were just a block away from here when we heard the explosion. So we rushed here as quick as possible. once we got here, we got rid of the soldiers that tried to kill you and dragged out of the disembowled shop." The soldier answered.
Machine fire can be heard just a few streets away just as a dozen or so tanks arrive at the scene and enter the fray. The soldiers follow the tanks, hidden behind its armor. The tank fires and sends a group of them into pieces. Another tanks sends a building to pieces and one machine gun falls out. The soldiers enter the city center. Everything's viciously quiet. The tanks spread out around the center. many windows bust open and machine gunners fire at the soldiers. Then the rocket launchers aim their rockets at the tanks and blast them apart. A line of Blue fighters Fly across the center and blast their own rockets into the buildings. They explode on impact killing everything. those that survived the explosion crawl out of the buildings like ants. The soldiers aim at them and kill them without regret. Luke arrives at the center in another armored vehicle. He looks out the window at the mess and the dead bodies.
"Damn them. They took out nearly a thousand soldiers with that surprise attack. At least this battle is won." He thought to himself.
Chapter 45: The war in Europe 10: Another charge to another borderline
The next day after the battle of Vienna we cleared the streets of the dead so the people that returned from hiding wouldn't see the carnage that happened here. After we were done with that, we head towards the Austria-Czech border. To me it feels like we have victory in our grasp but the last battle made me realize that there wasn't enough soldiers countering us. I feel the tension in the air as well. This morning we've stopped at a huge lake. It's a very beautiful view. At the very center of the lake is a small island with a church built on it. Too bad that Samantha can't see it. After her broken arm injury, i've sent her back to the base where she can heal up. I've decided to stay here and rest up.
Luke turns off the device he was talking to and places it on the table and exits his bedroom with nothing but a swimsuit and a towel.
"I knew you'd be here." Someone called out behind him.
He turns around to see who's talking. The captain continues to walk towards him.
"Every soldier deserves a break once in a while. I see that the medics have fixed up already." Luke replied.
The captain smirks and looks out at the lake.
"Out for a morning swim I see." He said.
"Yup and you should get some rest as well. Don't want you getting banged up already." Luke said.
"Yeah I should. I just came from the other side of the lake and nothing's happened yet." He replied.
"That's good. Tell the soldiers that are on guard to watch their backs." Luke ordered.
The captain nods and walks away from Luke while he turns around and jumps into the warm lake.

Berlin, Germany; Inside the new Nazis headquarters:
The blast proof doors open and Hitler walks in. Inside the room was a long table with lots of chairs. At the other side of the room was a huge flat screen TV Hanging on the wall. The blast proof doors close shutting the only light out. The screen pops on and the Devil appears in it. Hitler bows down deeply.
"What the hell are you doing?" The Devil growled angrily.
"Sir, I didn't realize that he had such a huge and strong army!" Hitler replied back hastily.
"You've lost me some valuable countries!" Devil continued to growl.
"Yes I know and I'm sorry sir. But I regrouped my army and put up some strong forces around the remaining countries,
especially where he's heading to now." Hitler replied back more bravely.
The Devil thinks for a few seconds.
"You better fix it up now, or you're finished along with your plans." He belowed.
"Yes sir!" Hitler replied and bows again as the screen pops off.
The blast doors open up again and he walks out with a evil look in his face. His minions stand right next to the blast proof doors.
"Send 'them' to the Czech Republic at once!" He ordered.
His minions nod in approval and vanish into the air.
The next morning, Luke wakes up and prepares himself for the upcoming day. He exits the Blue Transport Plane to check out his army.
"Sir, we're ready to go through the borderline." a soldier announced.
"Good! Then send the armored trucks to cross the borders at once." Luke ordered.
The soldier nods and runs off. An armored jeep stops in front of Luke and the passenger door opens up.
"Need a lift?" The captain asked.
Luke jumps into the jeep and drives towards the borderline.
It took them nearly four hours to pass the borderline. The first towns and villages they passed through were decimated. Nothing but half destroyed buildings met their eyes with no signs of life. They enter one of the towns centers to find a huge hill of dead bodies. Hundreds of babies were stabbed through a staff that is even higher than the mount of dead bodies.
"My god. What kinds of psycho bastards would do such thing?" Luke bellowed as he saw the bodies.
The scent of rotting bodies fill up his nostrils. He chokes on the smell while trying to keep himself from puking out his breakfast.
"I just got messaged from the scouting planes that everything is nearly destroyed. Like if a tornado swept through here." The captain announced.
Inside Nazis HQ; Hitler is sitting inside his office reading something. An young boy appears at the front of his desk.
"You called for me sir?" The boy asked.
Hitler looks up at him.
"Yes, for this mission your name will be 'Ivan'. I want you to head towards Prague. Luke should be heading there at this moment. Once he gets there make sure you join his army. Once you're in, assassinate him while hes busy, alone or asleep!" He ordered.
The young boy bows and disappears into thin air.
"Now the war is turning upside down. Right Noah?" Hitler said.
Out of the shadows Noah approaches.
"Yes! As long as I have Russia that is." He hissed.
The two of them laugh evilly.
Hours later, Luke and his company stop fro a moment on the outskirts of a city named Brno. The soldiers line up in order while the captain and Luke approach them.
"Alright soldiers listen up!" The captain shouted.
The soldiers quiet down and turn their attention to Luke.
"We'll do the same thing like we did in Italy! We have a rendezvous point in Prague, so if anyone gets split out or gets lost, that's where we all meet with the H company a.k.a Heros company. Now that's all I wanted to say. Go and rescue these people from the demons of hell!" Luke ordered.
The soldiers shout of approval and charge into Brno.
