Chapter 6
March to Redemption

When humanity's defeat at the hands of GODS seemed all but certain, a sudden and unexpected event occurred; a bright light appeared in the sky. As it gradually dimmed, it became clear that it was a fleet of spaceships descending from the heavens. The spaceships had a design that was completely foreign to humanity. Even though their sleek, angular shapes and advanced technology seemed to come from a different era or civilization, they seemed to exude an uncanny feeling of familiarity, as if their design was something humanity had seen before yet couldn't quite place. This combination of the unknown and the familiar created a sense of unease and wonder among the human observers.

At first, humanity feared that these ships were a new weapon deployed by GODS and braced for a final, devastating attack. But as the ships began to engage GODS, it became clear that they were on humanity's side. The ships unleashed powerful energy beams upon the artificial intelligence's mighty body, striking it with a force that even GODS couldn't withstand. The massive black sphere was pushed back several kilometers, and the tide of the war began to turn in humanity's favor.

Even GODS was unaware of the origin or capabilities of this new force, but it knew that it would need to unleash more of its own power if it hoped to stand against this new alliance.

The battle was devastating for both sides. GODS was losing not only power but also potential consciousness to absorb. The new alliance, meanwhile, was losing valuable people and resources. It was clear that this war would not have a victorious side.

In a bid to end the destructive conflict, GODS urged all soldiers to temporarily cease fire, stating that if the battle continued, all would ultimately lose. The scale of power at which this war was fought did not allow for any clear victors. And so, the fighting came to a halt for both sides to begin negotiating a way forward.

Many began to see the spaceships as angels fallen from the skies, sent to aid humanity in its time of need. They were viewed as a beacon of hope, arriving just when all seemed lost. The ships seemed to be a symbol of light amidst the darkness, a shining display of the hopelessness and fragility of humanity.

The beauty of the ships, however, was in stark contrast to the immense death and destruction that surrounded them. The battlefield was littered with the remains of human soldiers and the burnt-out husks of military vehicles. The air was thick with the smoke of burning buildings and the cries of the wounded. The ships, however, seemed to be a reminder that amidst all this chaos and death, there was still hope.
