Chapter 1.5 Belfast’s journey back home

The day before Arx’s arrival to the naval base…………………………………..

“Hey Belfast, England has sent us a letter.” Warspite said

“Let’s see……I see…” Belfast nodded and she read the letter.

“So…what did it said?” Ark asked

“It said that the Queen has ordered our return back to England. My sister, Edinburgh, wrote this letter. She said that England is preparing for a counterattack after the failed invasion of Germany. Even though our true enemy is the Abyssal…yet Poland still attacked us amidst this chaos.” Belfast said with an angry tone

“So all of us shall go back?” Warspite asked

“Nah, the letter also said that a new admiral is coming. S me and Ark will go back and see what happened. And you and Jervis will stay here and welcome the admiral. We will tell you what happened after we came back.” Belfast said

“Alright, just be careful. Who knows what Germany has installed for us after their failed invasion. Those damned fascists will do whatever it takes to invade us.” Warspite said

“Yeah, and this time we are launching a massive counterattack against them. Alright, we shall take our leave.” Belfast said as she left the office

“Take care.” Warspite said

At the North Sea………………………………………………………..

“Belfast, I don’t see any of our allied ships in the vicinity. Something’s wrong here.” Ark said

“Yeah, I have a bad feeling about this….” Belfast said while readying her armaments.

As the two of them sailed towards the Strait of Dover, they found out many ship carcasses floating on the sea. They immediately knew that it was the failed invasion of the Germans and the British defenders. Then they went to the castle in hope of meeting the Queen of England.

“Halt!!!” the guard stopped them

“We are the Royal Navy ships. I am Belfast, and this is Ark Royal. We request a meeting with the Queen now.” Belfast declared

“Hold on, we shall seek approv-“The guard was interrupted

“That won’t be necessary. The queen did request their return.” A female voice sounded

“Roger!!!” the guards replied and allow passage for Belfast and Ark to return.

At the hallways………………………………………………..

“Sister Edinburgh, nice to see you. I want to know of the seriousness of the casualties of the country after the invasion.” Belfast said

“Yes, we suffered badly due to the invasion of Germany. But although we did suffered heavy casualties, we managed to push them back from London. The Queen has requested your return as well as the rest of your fleet’s return as assistance and preparation to the counterattack we will unleash back at the Germans.” Edinburgh said

“Use of my whole fleet is not necessary.” Belfast rejected

“What? Why?” Edinburgh asked in surprised to Belfast’s answer

“Because a new admiral has been posted to our base tomorrow, so he will require Royal Navy ships to help him in assaulting the first few areas” Belfast said

“I see, but we need as many personnel as possible.” Edinburgh said

“I alone will be sufficient for the operation. I can also lead the vanguard if required.” Belfast announced

“As expected of the Town-class cruiser.” Edinburgh said with a smile

“Oh please, you’re a Town-class cruiser yourself too.” Belfast said with a smile as well

“I get it. I will request to the Queen to only request you alone as your base’s assistance. So I hope that you won’t disappoint me, Belfast.” Edinburgh said

“Don’t worry, In honor to Edinburgh, Gloucester, Manchester, and Southampton, I shall not allow our class to be shamed by our enemies.” Belfast declared proudly.

At the London pier…………………………………………………….

“So…how did it go?” Ark asked

“It went well. I managed to convince Edinburgh to not request all of us to go back.” Belfast said

“As expected of you Vice Admiral. Then what conditions did they gave out?” Ark said

“They didn’t, I gave the promise that I alone will return here and lead the counterattack.” Belfast said
