The Assault: Part 1: Search For Victory

I am a normal kid, well sort of. Everyone has those different things about them, for
example: I fly planes, fence, and can perform geometry in my head. I am also a good shot
with almost any type of gun. I am one of the best strategists in my school. Troon High
School, the high school of Troon a town just north of Corpus Christi, Texas is one of the
only schools in the state to have a fencing team. We have been the highest rated one in
the state only the year I have been here. I am the second best, the best being another 9th
grader, Drew Davis. Now, it's time to get to the story.I blocked a downward slash, then
gave a weak thrust, mostly to give myself time to regain my balance. He moved back about
two paces, I had gained ground. He still had one advantage over me, height. He always won
using attacks from above. This match had been going on for about ten minutes, a very long
time. The next thing he did surprised me, jumping high in the air; his foot came up and
kicked my sword out of my hand. He thrust at me, but missed due to a backward flip on my
part. As soon as I landed, I tried to kick his sword away, but his blade found the sensor
above my heart. "Match over," the new scoring system announced, "Drew Davis wins over
Justin Mills.""I'm still better than you, for all of your intelligence," he taunted at
me.He always was trying to provoke a fight with me. Next was the self-defense class that
our school was making required after what happened in Colorado. I guess they wanted
students to be able to repel any future shootings. I personally think that teaching
everyone to fight just gives them a weapon of their own. I hurried to class, yet was still
late. "Remember," the teacher was saying, "if your opponent is armed, go for the hand.
Never let the gun or knife aim at you. The best thing to do is kick the hand with the
weapon."The teacher then proceeded to demonstrate the exact technique Drew used to disarm
me in my last fencing match. It was almost the time to go to lunch when I heard Drew's
voice come over the school intercom. "All students and staff, the school is now taken
over. There are forty well-armed men in the building, as well as ten thousand more out in
the town. Your country will fall to us."I rushed to the door, but it opened before I could
get there. A man carrying a submachine gun wearing a tan colored combat uniform burst in.
I quickly kicked him in the jaw. His head snapped back, and during this I kicked the gun
out of his hand. Rolling, I picked up the gun and fired one shot at him, it hit him in the
head. Searching his body, I found a pistol as well. I tossed the machine gun to my most
trusted friend, Chris Hobson. "Everyone," I said, "Head for the cafeteria, get other
classrooms, Chris, guard them and choose who else gets armed. We can do this. There is a
naval base six hours away from here, we can use the busses."I dashed out into the corridor
and seeing two more armed men, I fired two hopeful shots that struck home. I called Chris
over to them and gave him their weapons. I ran to the front stairway, looked over, and
took out three more. I ran down the first half of the stairs, then jumped over the railing
down to the first floor. I ran to the cafeteria and dove over the first brick wall (our
cafeteria is split my four foot high brick walls). I stood up and faced behind me, the
entire cafeteria starting to hear the shouts of the men coming down the hall. I spotted
them and then unloaded my gun into them, taking out about five or six. One of then dove
over the wall, and tried to shoot me. I was too quick, already kicking him in the face. He
fell right there and I grabbed his gun as quickly as I could. Standing up, I fired the gun
(almost falling over from the kick) and pushed them back. Drew fled the scene and the rest
