"That Zeela! Shes
threatening me! Ha ha!" President Grussheur laughed
heartily. "Shes so young and impotent! Whats she
going do to me, sue me?!" The Presidential Office roared
with laughter. The Presidential Office was a rectangular room
with a large oval table in the center. President Grussheur and
General Salvadore sat on the opposite tips. Grussheurs most
trusted and competent advisors were there to discuss on future
defensive matters, but the conference topic has swerved widely to
amusement and jubilation.
"But seriously sir,"
said one of the advisors, "we must take action to safeguard
"Yes men, it is imperative
we do so. After we obliterated their colony pod, we have to
expect anything to happen. What ideas do we all have?" said Grussheur. His advisors thought for a second. One of them spoke

The advisors were in accordance of what was just said. Another

"Excuse me Mr. President
for interrupting," said one of the advisors near Grussheur,
"but you really cant be serious? You cant invade
the Quartz Federation!"
"And why not!"
"Wed be going too
far! We will seem oppressive and evil to the galaxy. Many
factions will support them if they choose to ally themselves. I
feel that we should launch a major offensive when she
finally counteracts against us."
"Well said! But dont
you ever interrupt me again, you presumptious boor!"
proclaimed Grussheur as he stood up and violently waved his
finger at the advisor. He sat down and continued to talk.
"But, very well said. Yes, we will go to far when we invade.
However, sitting here will be inane. She could strike us at any
moment or not strike us at all! Nonetheless, my mind is made up.
We shall invade the Quartz Federation, but not at this present
moment. First, you must all see how Queen Zeela is a danger to
our society. I cannot have her disrupting the peace of our empire
at any time of peace." said Grussheur very boldly. Salvadore
sat there, listening intently of what his leader was trying to
say. Grussheur then spoke coldly waving his finger at every word.
"So, I want Queen Zeela dead!"
Salvadores eyebrows rose
up showing his amazement.
"Are you sure thats
wise? You could get brutal criticisms from the public and from
Shes a bane to our safety and can strike at anytime. And to
destroy a nation, you must destroy her leadership. A nation
without a leader cannot function!"
"But, dont you think
we should discuss the matter with her first?" pleaded Salvadore.
"I doubt that itll
solve anything. Like the great Otto von Bismarck of the Second
Reich once said, The great questions of the time will be
decided, not by speeches and resolutions of majorities, but by
blood and iron. We shall solve this matter by blood. Have
her killed! I want no more rebuttals! Do it now and good day to
Salvadore and the advisors left,
giving orders to their men. The operation would be set.
Later that day
The Ruling Royal Council met
with Queen Zeela that day. They were mandated to join and had
feared her since the attack on QF-3. The Ruling Royal Council
only consisted of four important advisors. They were Chancellor
Terry Lowin, Captain Warsay, General Alvin Sargon, and Secretary
of Diplomatics, Sharon Jordan. Captain Warsay was head of the
Royal Guards. He is considered the Queens elite bodyguard.
General Sargon was second in command of the armed forces and all
military operations (after the queen). He helped her with the
most influential, military decisions. Secretary of Diplomatics,
Sharon Jordan was the Head Diplomat. She was in charge of all
The Royal Council however,
consisted of twenty advisors. They were mainly in charge of
passing laws and electing officials.
"I have called this
meeting," Queen Zeela stated as she entered the Royal Room.
She was wearing a dark robe with beautiful gold lining. Under the
robe, she wore midnight-blue tights that easily outlined the soft
contours of her body. "To discourse the situation of the
Seventh Reich. Any questions? Good. Meeting commenced." She
sat down. Two Royal Guards then departed the room leaving the
main door closed behind them. She took a deep breath and began to
"The recent attack on our
Colony Pod at QF-3 was a total embarrassment to the Quartz
Federation. I had to let them get away with this because I knew
that they had a more powerful militia. Grussheur is like a bully.
He picks on weaker nations. But we shall not let another assault
occur ever again! We need to protect ourselves. Any
"I have one." said
Chancellor Lowin. "Traditionally, the best way of ridding a
bully was to befriend with other people. In other
chancellor." replied Queen Zeela. "Secretary Jordan,
youll be in charge of creating these alliances."
"Yes your majesty."
"Make them quick. I sense
an upcoming threat."
"Yes. But Im afraid
only two allies will actually help us in this ordeal." said
Secretary Jordan in a saddened voice.
"Please, do explain
Secretary Jordan turned on a
viewing screen where the map of their star system was exhibited.
She zoomed in on their planet, Terria.
"As we all know, we are
located on the small planet, Terria. We arent too distant
from Earth, which means Grussheur wont find it very
strenuous to attack us. On Terria, there are two factions, the
Rouge Confederacy and the Xeran States. Only the Rouge
Confederacy is powerful enough to help us. Our second possible
ally is another confederate state. The American Confederacy. They
are located on Earth which can give us an offensive advantage.
Thats all can say. Two possible allies."
"Two will be enough."
responded Queen Zeela. "General Sargon."
"Yes my queen."
"I want you to
Queen Zeela stopped as four men
in black suits suddenly bursted through the palace windows. Their
black suits included suede boots and a belt full of compartments.
Each of the mystery men had a laser pistol in hand.
"See you in hell, your
majesty!" snarled one of the mystery men evilly. He aimed
his pistol toward Queen Zeela and he fired.
Chancellor Lowin as he jumped up and took the blast right in the
chest. The powerful laser blast seared through his clothing and
skin and dissipated his bones. He landed on the ground with a
Queen Zeela and her advisors
"Take cover!" cried
Queen Zeela. The rest of the advisors quickly jumped to the back
of Queen Zeelas desk where she stood. General Sargon and
Capt. Warsay took out their blasters. Queen Zeela and Secretary
Jordan however, did not have a weapon.
"Come out Queen Zeela!" said one of the mystery men in a guttural voice.
"We came here to crash your party!"
"Stay down my queen."
said Capt. Warsay as he took out his comlink. "Ill
contact the Royal Guards."
"No! Look at them!"
Queen Zeela pointed. "They just wired the door. Anything can
happen if the doors are opened!"
"Well, Im not going
to sit here and do nothing!" General Sargon said bravely. He
hopped up and fired twice.
"Ahh!" cried of the
men as he was shot down.
it!" hollered one of the mystery men. "Queen Zeela! All
we want is you! Step out and save the lives of your advisors or
all of you shall die!"
"Dont listen to
him." whispered Capt. Warsay. He sprang up from his
crouching position and fired his weapon. He fired three
timeseach shot aimed at their weapons. In an instant, the
mystery men were disabled. Cursing were heard as the three of
them grabbed their hands in pain.
The three men charged. Capt.
Warsay and General Sargon stood up to fire but the mystery men
were too fast. Two quick roundhouse kicks and both advisors lost
their weapons as well. Queen Zeela looked in disbelief but her
fighting instincts quickly kicked in. She hastily donned her
large robe, revealing her petit, compact body.
While Sargon and Warsay engaged
in their own mystery men, one was without action. Queen Zeela
eyed him. She jumped on to the table and unleashed a kick. The
man moaned as his neck snapped back. She agilely jumped down. She
hugged the floor and sweep-kicked him. He went down with a hard
thud. Zeela bounced back up easily and with tremendous grace.
"Didnt expect a queen
like me to fight, eh?"
The mystery man didnt
answer. He was confused and very fearful. He was afraid what a
ruler like Queen Zeela was about to do to him. Then all of a
sudden, she stomped his crotch. Her sharp, high heels made
contact as the mystery man helplessly yelped in pain.
growled Queen Zeela with a mad look in her eyes.
But the mystery man wasnt
about to give up. He lifted a concealed pistol for a shot at the
queen. Zeela had already anticipated his move and stepped right
on his wrist, spewing blood from his tender skin. He dropped his
pistol and tried to lift his head, screaming in pain during the
assault. Then in one smooth motion, she forcefully kicked his
head. Blood ran freely from his mouth.
"Ugh," groaned Queen Zeela. "My shoes are bloody!"
Meanwhile, Capt. Warsay was
having no trouble fending off his opponent. He blocked the
mystery mans attacks with ease and lunged at every
opportunity. With a flurry of punches and kicks, Capt. Warsay
easily subdued his enemy.
Things were different with
General Sargon. Sargon was experienced, but old and not as fast
and strong. Sargon attempted a punch but the mystery man
effortlessly dodged the old mans attack. The mystery man
connected Sargon with a blistering kick. Sargon groaned and
clutched his stomach in pain. The mystery man then pulled out a
knife from one his compartments. He kicked Sargon again and said,
"Youre too slow old
man! Let me put you where you belong!"
With that, the mystery man
stabbed Sargon in his stomach. Blood oozed from Sargons
mouth as his eyes froze. He bowled over, dead.
The mystery man laughed in
Queen Zeela just as she had defeated her opponent. She made a
dashing jump kick which knocked the mystery man off-balance.
"Oooomf!" the mystery
man moaned as he grabbed his ribs hoping to ease the pain.
"You friggin'... Ill kill you, for the sake of the
She disregarded his comment and
went towards his side, picking a knife from one of his belt
compartments. With a turn of her body, she swiftly attempted a
slash at his waist.
He blocked her arms and punched
the left side of her stomach vigorously.
Queen Zeela groaned painfully.
She quickly broke free from his grip. She rolled away and threw
the knife at him as soon as she popped back up. The knife spun
too fast to stop. It pierced his arm, opening up a huge bloody
Blood spewed everywhere.
Queen Zeela abruptly took a
defensive stance and smiled wryly. The man smiled back, bearing
his hideous teeth. He seemed unhurt by the knife. He knew now
that one of them had to die, and it would end right now.
Then in great haste, they both
charged each other. The man tried to clothesline her, but she
ducked and punched hard at his unguarded mid-section., Queen
Zeela then said to the crouching man,
"Your attempt to kill me
has failed, fool! The punishment is death!"
She swiftly lifted her leg and
brought it down vehemently on his back. He crouched more and
cursed her in every way he could. She kneeled down in front of
him and delivered the final hit. With all her might, she issued a
strong uppercut. The mystery man flew backward landing hard on
the concrete. He was unconscious and had a bloody, mangled face.
Its over, Queen Zeela
thought. The ordeal is over.
She surveyed the room and saw
five men on the floor, not moving. Just then, the royal guards
and the queens handmaidens rushed in. The guards were
wearing light blue uniforms. They each wore a black beret and
were equipped with laser rifles. They came as soon as they were
"I dismantled their
wiring." said Secretary Jordan. "Too bad I
couldnt help out General."
"Queen Zeela!" cried
one of her handmaidens as she sped in. "Are you
"Please do not worry.
Im alright." Queen Zeela replied haughtily. "I
nailed them good!" she said with a smile. She paused and
looked disheartened. There was a large opening in Chancellor
Lowins chest. The charred skin was still smoking. His face
stayed the same at the moment he was hit, his mouth opened
showing much expression. "Take the bodies of General Sargon
and Chancellor Lowin to the morgue. Well have a funeral
procession for them tomorrow."
"What about the four
"Shoot them all and send
them to President Grussheur."
Queen Zeela started to leave the
room. She turned around and stopped.
"Yes, your majesty?"
"Have Colonel Williams
prepare our troops. I want them mobilized by next week!"
