They kiss some more, but don't take it any further, and get up, Alice looking out into the jungle.
"Hear something? Or you just being paranoid, like always?" Ed adds on the last part as a joke, though Alice remains silent, watching the jungle. Finally, she speaks.
"Yeah. It's far away though, let's go check it out? I don't want anyone wandering about, no matter how well hidden this cave is.
"Okay. I understand what ya mean, after all, this place will be our home for the time being, so we'd rather not have vermin here." He says, starting to head out, just behind Alice. They stay mostly silent, moving through the jungle for a good while, when suddenly Alice stops.
"Up ahead, maybe a mile. Some Dominion, by the looks of it. Gimme conditions, this'll be easy." She says, confidently raising and readying her rifle. She sits up on a slight perch, where she has a better angle, and starts to hover over the troops, seeing two marines, a medic, and a marauder.
"High humidity, no winds, low air pressure, roughly 86 degrees. I'd say 27 degrees to the top-right." Ed says, checking his instruments. They were essential, and had doomed many soldiers before, him and Alice being a deadly team. They worked together well, always knowing what the other would do.
"Roger." She says, angling the barrel. She pulls the trigger, and looks on. A few seconds later, the Marauder collapses, and the other three look at it. Another few seconds pass, and suddenly one of the two marines is dead as well. The other two run, and Alice decides not to fire again, figuring the deed was done. Their presence was known, though they certainly wouldn't think it was them. She turned to Ed, and nodded. "Two down, let the other two escape. Just a marine and a medic. They're dead anyways."
He nods, puzzled. "Still probably should've done um in, just to be safe. You'd normally take that shot."
"Yeah, but I didn't wanna waste ammo. Plus, what the hell are they gonna do?"
"I dunno, tell someone that there are snipers out there? Let's cut um off and finish um up." Ed says, looking ready to go and murder the remaining two.
"No, let's just head back. That's too dangerous. And like I said, they won't hurt anything."
"Fine." Ed says, and they start back, before turning and looking for a base of their enemies. They had to be around.
