The Difference Between Running and Living(part 15)

Hey guys, sorry if you sent me a friend request and I havent answered, Its just because my friend request thing it broken.:(
****************************************************************************************
I walked into Dr.Ds room, bracing myself for screaming, singing, crying anything.
All I heard was silence. Utter comlete silence. I stared questioningly at Dr.D who nodded.
"That's the scary part." He said, fiddling with the zone 16 switches.
"try zone 15." I stated and leaned on his chair, staring at the zone 15 radio. He flipped the switch and turned up the volume. I felt my shoulders tensea nd square up as they did when I was nervous.
There was the gunshots and fighting I was looking for. I got out of Dr. Ds radio room quickly and headed to my booth filled with the weapons. I slid on my jacket quickly and fumbled with the weapons.
"What up?" Asked Fun, standing up quickly from the booth with worried eyes, followed by everyone else.
"Zone 16 got rubed out and they are onto zone 15." I said,Marie got what I said immediatly while the others pondered it for a second before buzzing about and yelling.
"I'll get my gun!" Marie yelled, heading downstairs. It took me a moment to realize what was wrong with that situation.
"Marie! Your pregnant!" I yelled after her, hearing retreating footsteps. Marie came back up, head down and shuffling into a booth.
"Well?" I said, "Just because you have a baby doesnt mean you can't help!" Marie smiled and helped load on my weapons.
"What's happening?" Asked a small voice. Everyone stopped what they were doing and looked towards the source.Missile was at the top of the stairs, fearfuleyes and clutching a teddy bear with a sewn shut eye in an x. It made my heart break.
"We have to take care of some business in zone 15." I said walking over the MIssile and kneeling down to look her face to face. I plastered on a smile and people started to mull about again.
"Will you come back?" She asked and I tackled her in a bear hug.
"Of course! I promise. "I said and plastered on another smile.
"Come on Alex! The engines hot!" Party yelled after me from the garage door. I sighed and faced Missile again. I got up and walked to the garage, passing a sad looking Marie on the way. We both knew from growing up that whenever we went into battle it could be our last time seeing eachother.
"See that beautiful girl back there?" I saled, jabbing my thumb back towards Missile. Maire looked and nodded. "That's my baby. She is your top priority. Whatever happens, put her first." I hated giving commands like that especailly to Marie. But Marie knew and smiled. I smiled back and hugged her.
"Come back." She said. I blew a ginning Missile a kiss before I headed into the garage.
When I left a heard a small voice say," Bye Mommy."
