  "War position 5!" Admiral Aida screamed. We all did our positions as told. She then made some kind of hand signal, then screamed, "Release." We all set our guns across our chests and kneeled down.
"Generals,'' she said, pacing back and forth. "This is no joke. We are the best. At everything. Now is our chance to prove it. And when I want power, strength, I rightfully get it. Do you know why, General Ethan?" she said, blazing her eyes into mine.
 "We get what's ours, and we don't forget it," I whispered in a shaky breath.
"I can't hear you, General Ethan! Why do I get power and strength when I--"
"WE GET WHAT'S OURS AND WE DON'T FORGET IT!" I balled my fists, not even daring to look into her eyes,. But when I did, she was still staring at me. "That's very correct, General Ethan," She said with a bit of satisfaction in her voice. "We get what's ours and we don't forget it." Then, with one graceful hand, she slapped me hard on my cheek. "Next time, General Ethan," She said, her voice soft but cold in my ear, "Don't make me have to repeat myself." I felt a small red burn on the side of face. She slowly lifted herself off the ground and gave me a hard smile.  "Today, we fight. Tomorrow, we fight. The day after that, we fight. But next week--''
"We take what's ours, and we don't forget it." I felt small and weak compared to her. She gave me another one of her hard smiles. "We take what's ours and we don't forget it!" She slammed the tip of her large machine pistol on the ground so hard, we all heard a tiny rumble. "We take what's ours, and we don't forget it!"
"WE TAKE WHAT"S OURS, AND WE DONT FORGET IT! WE TAKE WHAT'S OURS, AND WE DONT FORGET IT! WE TAKE WHAT'S OURS, AND WE DONT FORGET IT! WETAKEWHAT'SOURSANDWEDONTFORGETIT!" Admiral Aida slammed her pistol on the ground once more, and the whole room fell silent. She studied each and every one of our faces, especially mine.
Admiral Aida, or Beast, as we call her behind her back, is a very tall, fit, and skinny. She is about my age, 20. Her brown hair was always kept into a tall, sleek ponytail. And although she was a naturally beautiful woman, you could tell that looking into her cold and hard grey eyes that she was nobody to play with.
Beast always messes with me all because of one incident. A couple of years ago, when I first joined the war, I had made a friend named Adrian. He was a very curious guy, and he always wanted to pay attention to what Beast wanted to say.
"So, I heard there's a plan Beast is working on," he had told me during lunch one day. "Nobody has told me yet. Do you know what the plan is? I can't be left out." He was munching on a tuna sandwich, staring at me intently.
"Nobody has told you yet?" I said, putting down my Jell-O. "I thought that she discussed it with us last week." 
"I wasn't there," he said. "I had some duties to work out. It's my first year, and some trained Generals wanted to teach me a few things"
"Okay," I said, understanding a bit. I mean, how would it hurt to tell him a plan that he missed out on?
Apparently, a lot. The Pisces won the mini war, always one step ahead of us. After the war, Adrian wasn't around anymore. Devastatingly, I assumed he was MIA. Then, a month later, Beast called me in her office. 
"So, how was your little relationship with General Adrian?" She said, giving me hard smile.
"It was fine, but I've been assuming he was MIA since the mini war ended." I bit my lip, sensing something was wrong.
"Oh no, trust me, he's not MIA. He was actually an ASU."
"Don't mind me asking, Admiral Aida, but was is ASU?"
"It means Army Spy Undercover," she said sharply, spit flying in my face. I was too scared to wipe it off. "And, it turns out, someone was telling him all of our plans, detail by detail." She turned her back to me at that sentence. "And do you know who that... someone... is?"
"YES YOU!" She screamed in my face. "You have now put the lives of many Capricorns in danger. Not just a few, but MANY of our fellow soldiers died." Her voice cracked. "You better pray to death that we don't have you in the same position that General Adrian is."
"And what position is that, Admiral?" I said, looking down at the mud stained floor.
"He got executed." She whispered heartlessly.
