Tson (Yeah, that's somewhat late. Seems like I overlooked your reply... 😅 )
He gives her a surprised look and a hearty laugh.
"Nothing to apologise for. It was only a misunderstanding after all and none of us would hold grudges.
I'm surprised you think of the leader as 'fascist' tho. He's possibly one of the best guys I've ever fought for, besides the one single time he went berserk because the second in command refused to follow a direct command.
Most of us do understand him tho, its just the casual issue with AIs trying to be as efficient as possible. And well, let's be honest, most lifeforms are far from efficient. You guys just killed another seargteant for example.
He's bound to rely on us, besides the fact we are prone to failing, getting distracted, ill or whatnot. It's just natural he's got issues working with lifeforms and that's why we all try to help him as much as we can.
I don't expect you to understand me or any other trooper, I simply want you to know we all greatly respect him, while secretly pitying him aswell."
Besides beeing somewhat surprised, One instantly moves next to the beast, aiming his shields edge at its throat and the sword at its neck, almost awaiting an attack while doing so.
Four seems to consider helping One for a moment, but decides to keep going.
"Guess you can get everything if you've got the right contacts...
Something with that much destructive power won't be useful in this forest tho, all the falling trees would really slow them down. We can only keep going and hope for the others to survive, I'm sure they'll make it tho, you already know One never has problems dealing with humans."
Given the enemys estimated firepower, he sounds only half convinced. He already knows going back would only mean more losses tho and forces himself to keep following Zeros markings.
