"Master, please give me a name." Bookmark here

"A name? Uhh... let me think." I replied. 
Hmm... She got ruby hair, rosy lips and pale white skin, so Vermiculus should work fine. Or could Ardens? But Sanguis sounds good too... Bookmark here

In the end, I thought of many names for her but couldn't choose one. Bookmark here

"Ugh. Give me like a day to decide." I asked the android. Bookmark here

"Understood." She responded. Bookmark here

Turning around, I walked with the android to the exit while thinking about some questions. 
First things first, I would need to know what she uses as power and energy. Secondly, I probably would need to know what kind of android she is, normal, battle, or work. And finally, why does Creator Uto made me bear this curse of his? Bookmark here

After crawling through the hole again, and double-checking the items I had, my instincts reacted. Quickly I grabbed the android's arm and ran to a corner with shadow and cover. Bookmark here

"Master, what's wrong?" She asked me. Bookmark here

"I don't know if you noticed, but the smell... it smells of blood and gunpowder. Clearly, someone has been shot with a material gun. I don't know what's going on right now, but I figure that hiding will be the best for now." I replied while popping my head over the cover. Bookmark here

After scanning the surrounding area and confirming it to be safe, I slid to a sitting position and let out a huge sigh of relief. 
I then looked up to the sky, which was covered in rising ash clouds, and then looked back to the android. Bookmark here

"Listen. I am about 80% sure that my base, HQ is destroyed and raided already as it's near the town square. We need to get on the move. Most likely that troops from either the UWC or the SEA arrived in Touimai." Bookmark here

"But to where Master?" replied the android. Bookmark here

"I don't know. But it's safe to say that the whole of Toui- no, the whole of the Sagen Republic is out. We can maybe go to the Eastern Sagen Republic but we'll have to cross the frontline.Bookmark here

Considering our options, our best bet is on a natural country like Ashten or Armidilon, but those countries are pretty far down south from here and we have to cross the country and get through the Dusmoru Kingdom to get there. We could also move up north, crossing the Sagen Channel to Phermanue or AtseroBookmark here

"Okay. I want you to decide. Should we move down south to a neutral country like Ashten or Armidilon, or go north and cross the Sagen Channel to either Phermanue or Atsero?" I asked the android. Bookmark here

"I'll go with whatever you picked." She replied. Bookmark here

"Alright then. We are going to the Captial city of Phermanue, Heaju." Bookmark here

After deciding on where to go next, I laid on the ground, using my bag as a pillow, and closed my eyes. Bookmark here

"Alright, you should get some rest as well. Since I don't think anyone will even go near West Touimai, we should be safe." I said. Bookmark here

The android stood up and looked around before nodding. Bookmark here

"Understood. All systems shutting down and going into sleep mode." Bookmark here

She laid right next to me but I didn't mind it. Slowly but surely, my consciousness faded away. Bookmark here

...Bookmark here

When I woke up, and as I expected, no one came here. I looked up to the sky to see if any ash clouds were rising and there were none. A beautiful deep blue sky smiled down to the city. Bookmark here

"Blue skies huh. This is extremely rare for a city being so close to a deadly frontline." I uttered. Bookmark here

Once I got my surroundings, I grabbed my bag and woke up the android. Bookmark here

"Greetings Master. I apologise for making you wake me up." She said. Bookmark here

"Please, no more formal speech thanks. And don't you call me master again, I have a name, Void, you know." I replied. Bookmark here

"Request denied. Will unlock once master has given me a name." Bookmark here

Ugh. Fine. I'll bottle it up for now.Bookmark here

I double-checked my things and laid out a route to exit Touimai. 
"So, we're going to move west, north and then northeast okay? For the route itself though... just follow me." Bookmark here

The android nodded back and we began to move. Bookmark here

....Bookmark here

Meanwhile, at the Eastern Gate of Touimai, SEA soldiers, tanks, big and small robots waiting for the signal of attack behind the gate. Bookmark here

And as the commander of Operation Traitor, Colonel Yashki smiled with glee. Bookmark here

"Good. Very good. All according to plan." he said. Bookmark here

He then raised his arm and swung it down. All 3,000 tanks fired their 14,000mm main guns and showered hell to both the remaining 2,500 soldiers of the UCW deployed there and the citizens of Touimai. Bookmark here
