From a short distance away, Chris Shepard's voice reverberated through a hallway.
"...Yeah you know where to stick those orders, Gunny!"
His footsteps grew louder as he moved towards the briefing room, mumbling and cursing under his breath. He stepped into the doorway, wearing his Class A Service Uniform.
Chris was of a medium build, and could usually be seen with a shit eating grin on his face. His tone of voice always dripped with sarcasm unbecoming of a Marine, and his hair was way out of regulations.
He had a few medals upon his chest, but nothing of great significance. Anyone who had been in the Corps for more than six months would have realized the story they told. That Chris had participated in a few combat missions in the Fleet, was a Lance Corporal, and had a bad attitude. Actually, you could just tell that by looking at him.
He had never really seen any significant combat. A few pop shots at an occasional human, but nothing major. Nothing like
what a majority of this platoon had seen. But he didn't care. He was tossed in the brig before he could get into any major shit.
Chris looked down at the piece of paper he held with him.
Chris looked up and saw it was a female. He nearly winced in pain and cursed under his breath. He sighed and marched up to the Sergeant, snapping at attention with mockery.
"Lance Corporal Christopher Shepard reporting to duty!"
He ended the sentence with his shit eating grin.
Hearing Samantha's voice, he turned to face her, smiling quickly and looking back to Hoffman.
He then snapped his head back to Sam.
"Whoa whoa..you're in my squad too!?" Chris' voice was filled with shock. He shook his head and crumpled up the paper in his hand. "Man, they really got it out for me this time. I'm doomed."
He walked away from the two women, throwing his paper in the nearest trash can, and exiting the room.
"Gunny! I want to talk to my JAG Officer!"
After a couple of minutes, Chris returned, muttering and cursing under his breath. He was miserable, and it showed.
"Hi Sam, I'm Chris. Sorry about that. I just thought I was in the wrong place! No, I haven't fought Xenomorphs, but I was also never a big fan of having women in the infantry." He shot his signature grin.
