Congratulations and cake. That was the plan. After weeks of gruelling training and trials N7 rank was finally earned. The squad back in Vancouver bought a cake to celebrate. No brass, no officials. Just friends and laughter before our careers in the Alliance split us apart.

The plan changed.

Not long after the arrival of the shuttle from Brazil the invasion began. The initial reports were the stuff of nightmares. A dreadnought over the city was destroyed, civilian transports obliterated as they tried to flee to safety, local defenders were overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the enemy before them.

The squad fought from the spaceport back to the office with the arms left by the dead and the dying. The area was known. Traps could be laid along the common routes, vantages for sniping could be setup. The alternate ways in and out unknown to the enemy would allow escape.

In theory.

The office was already smashed. A room was turned into a makeshift morgue. It was clear that local Alliance forces had used the area to try and hold out or at least treat the wounded before evac. No one was left when the squad arrived. No one alive to tell the tale of what had happened only their arms and ammo.

All that was left was the cake. The cake meant for the afternoon tea to celebrate gaining N7 ranking. To celebrate achievement of friends dedicated to serve and protect humanity. It will not be taken like the lives of so many this day. It will stand, it will hold, afternoon tea will be had.
