The Civil War of Annesia

The kingdom, once a beautiful and prosperous land, has fallen. Thousands of years of unrelenting war has shattered it into three new lands, and their history is all but forgotten. The now ruined capitol of the kingdom of old has been found, and myth claims that it holds a gemstone so powerful, one kingdom could destroy the others, and rise up to become the most powerful in existence.

14. Taking Over

     "Green 2p7-qt, reporting from Green division."
     "I need you tune one of the monitors in to the surveillance gem on dagger number 3, and help me fly it into the power room of the security checkpoint closest to me."
     "I can't do that!"
     "I'll be the one levitating it. You just have to give me the directions."
     "Why can't you?"
     "I don't have the skill to split my focus like that."
     "Alright. As of...now, I'm receiving the feed."
     Saeflod described the general direction that he needed to go. He tossed the knife straight up into the air, catching it at the peak of its arc with his magic.
     "Down and to the left. Level off."
     Several seconds passed, as the knife drew closer to its target.

     "Straight up. Now forward again. Stop for a moment."
     "Where is it now?"
     "The roof. I'm trying to figure out a way in."
     "Ventilation shaft, open window, a door?"

     "There don't seem to be any vents or windows, and every door is guarded," Brockelle replied.
     "What about...hmm..."
     "I know, we could hide it in a person's pack!"
     "How do we get it inside, without them knowing?"
     "Trust me, I've got this. Now, go right. Down. Forward. Slow down," she directed him, with certainty, rattling off instructions one after another, "Stop again. Get ready to go left. Wait for it...Now! Up a bit. Forward just an inch. Drop."
     "Am I in?"
     "Yes!" she cheered.
     "Now how do we get from their bag, into the building, through the halls, and into the power room?"
     "Oh, I get the feeling that'll be a piece of cake."
     "Why is that?"
     "Because...the knife is in...the head of security's bag! And I know, from watching the checkpoints for months, that the head of security personally brings a new, fully charged crystal to each one, every day. Your knife will get into that room when it opens, at precisely...[keys clicked in the background]...eighteen hundred hours. In case you weren't aware, that's in exactly two minutes and twenty-four seconds."
     "Awesome! Tell me when it's time to start moving it again."
     "So, how are you going to use that crystal to shut down the power?"

     "I'm not. I'm going to use it to link you up with the control systems in the checkpoint, and you're going to use the green division's systems to control it. We'll have access to all of the security feeds, gate power supply, and alarms. This building will soon be ours to manipulate."
     "You can't be serious."
     "Yes, I am. Although, we'll need somebody else to come behind me, to make sure that the sabotage crystal is hidden inside of the base effectively enough that the enemy doesn't find it."
     "I'll tell the captain about it. Also, get ready to move the dagger. In five, four, three, two...ONE! Now, up! Left. Aaaaaand, full force, to the right!"
     "Are we in?"
     "All the way in. I'm hooking up with the crystal."
