M16A1 Commander? Negev? Are you there?!

Negev M16, where the hell are you?!
Sangvis forces are everywhere in Area S08, and they're insanely strong!
We almost retreated without you!

M16A1 Sorry, I got held up by something.
Listen, Negev, Commander. Ignore everything else.
Alchemist's troops have started mobilizing. I'm afraid they're going straight for you.

Negev Humph. So it's time to settle the score?
What about you? Where are you and SOP-II going?

M16A1 We have our own arrangement. We can handle it. Don't worry about us.
You guys be careful. Commander, keep Negev and the others safe!

Negev Hey! M16! Hello?!

Alchemist Morning, everyone from Griffin.
The hunt is about to begin. Are you ready?
And I very much look forward to seeing you again, Miss Negev…

Negev Oh really? But I'm hella pissed right now, Alchemist…
You'd better pray you won't run into me, especially not while I still have a breath left in me…

Alchemist Oh? How long will you last with your antique rounds?
Now let me guess. Are you gonna get shredded along with your little friends, or keel over as you run away on your own?
Paint your face with the sweetest kind of fear and let me have a taste!

Negev Suits me just fine, Sangvis scumbag…

Negev Let's get this fight started, Commander.
There's nothing more riveting than guzzling the blood of your enemy.

Three hours after the retreat commenced…
…Click.

M16A1 Negev… Negev…!
Our carrier is here! Hurry!
Sangvis is right behind you, and the building is about to blow!
Quick, everyone run! Hurry!



M4A1 Hmm…

M16A1 Finally awake, M4?
Can you walk on your own? Hurry, our carrier is here!

M4A1 M16…
Why…is it you?

M16A1 Why would it not be me? Isn't it always me?

M4A1 I mean…
AR-15…
Where is AR-15?! Where is she?!

M16A1 She…
She made her choice…


A horrible, irrepressible gut feeling pierced me again.

M4A1 No…
No! There must be some mistake!
AR-15… She… She wants to…

M16A1 Hey, M4! What are you doing?!
M4! Where are you going?! Come back here! Stay away from that building!


I ran off the aircraft and dashed into a scene of chaos.
The building collapsing in the midst of a deafening explosion… Friendly T-Dolls scrambling around in panic… Sangvis pursuers being buried in rubble…
And I knew what it meant…

M4A1
…A…R…15…
W…Why…

That was a cacophonous funeral…
…And a silent farewell.
