Tweet of the Day: Love Hurts Released

——-

Galeena read the latest battlefield reports on a datapad while eating breakfast.  The Fifth Brigade, her brigade, had done well in recent battles, but got mauled in the fighting and had to be pulled back from the the front lines. They finally made some head way with the use of of some Alliance tech that tracked Reaper signals. Over the last months they destroyed three regional control nodes via orbital bombardment. But the enemy figured out a counter by the use of multiple decoy sites. It would be up to her boys and girls, as she liked to think of them, to dig them out.

Then you had the endless stream of refugees with all the attendant problems of logistic and security that came with them. The Alliance provided scanners to weed out indoctrinated agents but  some got through. Two nights ago one suicide bomber blew up an aid station while two other were shot down en route to a depot.  Galeena shook her head as the memory of stench of viscera mixed with smoke crawled up her nostrils. She pushed away the bowl of cereal.

Her omni-tool buzzed with a new message:

MS. MIRANDA LAWSON & MR. THEODORE CARLOS THOMPSON-RAMOS CORDIALLY INVITE YOU AND A COMPANION TO THE CELEBRATION OF OUR WEDDING ON THE SHORES OF LAKE KATARN, HORIZON 07/10/2197.

Added to the message was a note:

P.S. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE~KELLY

Galeena  hid her deep violet blush behind her datapad.  She remembered Ms. Chambers from her last deployment to Horizon. She took a deep breath and smiled. It was time for some well deserved rest and recuperation. Although with Kelly around she would get neither.
