Third Person's POV

"Let's move out."

The three Guardians made their way into the cluster of small structures spread throughout the Moon's surface.

Jaeger entered the first building cautiously, before quickly throwing himself behind the door and yanking his two comrades with him.

"What's the big id-"

"Shush." Jaeger interrupted Alpha, pushing his head down. "We're not alone here."

He peered from behind the door to catch a glimpse of the two New Monarchy agents who had entered the building. Something seemed off about them, Jaeger noticed. They reeked of darkness.

He watched as they accessed a hidden panel on the wall, summoning an elevator that took them underground. The three jumped out of their hiding spots and made their way to the panel as soon as they assured the agents were gone.

"I knew we'd find something here." Talos grinned, slapping both arms around the Hunters' shoulders. "Now, how to gain access without being detected..."

"I've got this." Alpha said confidently as he summoned his Ghost. "Do your thing, North."

The Ghost promptly began to scan the panel. Before long, the elevator reappeared for them, opening its doors to reveal a beckoning aura.

"Good job." Talos nodded. "Let's get going then."

"Wait." Alpha interrupted. "We're just gonna barge in there without a plan?"

"We don't need a plan." Talos replied calmly. "We just need brute strength."

"That's easy for you to say." Alpha murmured so the Titan wouldn't hear him.

"I'm starting to like this guy." Jaeger chuckled as both Hunters followed him into the elevator.

There were only two options on the elevator's panel for them to choose from. Talos was quick to punch the bottom button that would take them underground. The elevator shook a bit before beginning it's descent.

"They won't know what hit them." Alpha said excitedly. "You think Ling will be down here?"

"Even if we don't find her, we should definitely find a lead of some sort." Jaeger reassured him. "Get your weapons ready. It seems we're about to arrive at our stop."

The trio summoned their weapons as the elevator doors opened, revealing a large underground laboratory.

"These guys are gonna have a lot of explaining to do." Alpha growled.

"Let's focus on the task at hand." Talos ordered, hurling an incendiary grenade out of the elevator. Sounds of screaming soon followed as the room began to fill with smoke, causing an alarm to go off.

"Don't you think it would have been a better idea to burn the place down after finding Ling?" Alpha insisted.

"Oh, don't worry." Talos reassured him. "These grenades only burn people."

"Charming." Alpha shuddered.

The room quickly began to fill with workers investigating the alarms. Alpha and Jaeger exchanged quick nods before unsheathing their swords.

"I'm ready."

"Let's go."

Talos gunned down the first few they encountered while the duo rushed further into the room, cutting down anything that stood in their way. As Talos had said, the fires began to extinguish soon after they finished their work, easing away Alpha's fear of being burned alive with the rest.
