Sorry it took so long to write up, I've haven't had much time this past month to work on it, and I've had to rewrite this part several times, till I was happy with it.

Chapter 16
The clip was short, about 30 seconds from the counter, while the display screen was black. He hit the play button and waited as the video finished resetting itself, which only took a second.

The first thing he noticed was the circular section with crosshairs and a range finder: He was looking at a video taken through a scope cam. He didn’t know Freedom had any.

It was what the sniper was looking at that was interesting. He saw Colonel Sergei get out of a helicopter, and walk towards someone. Except that someone wasn’t Sage or Ivan. It was some other Military officer. The quickly discussed something, and the other officer gestured to someone off camera. The view slowly moved, and caught the tail end of a stream of soldiers walking into a warehouse building. After 15 seconds or so, the soldiers walked out, and the scope zoomed in on the weapons the lead soldiers were carrying, and Sage felt his blood turn to ice inside his veins.


They were equipped with TRs series rifles.

The clip ended then. Sage looked up to Ivan and Shadow, and then back down to the pda. HE could feel the anger boiling inside of him.

“Sage, before you decide to stick a bullet in my skull, let me explain something. You remember when I asked you next time you saw that Colonel, to stick a bullet in his brain?” Sage nodded in reply. “Good,” Ivan continued “because that assholes been blackmailing me to do his dirty work ever since I joined the military. I wasn’t always a soldier; I used to be a bandit. Anyway, one day, after a close encounter with some Loners, no one was seriously hurt, but my buddies and I decided we had had enough of the Zone, and decided to leave for good through a gap in the Cordon. Unfortunately, there was an inspection at the Outpost the next day, and security was beefed up in preparation, to put on a good show. We didn’t know about it till the spot light came on. My buddies panicked, and ran. They were shot down. I froze, and wasn’t. They told me I had 10 seconds to give them a damn good reason not to shoot me. I said the only thing that I could that would possibly save my life: I came to offer my services to the Military. I told the outpost commander that we were going to leave the Zone, and loop around from the back, and offer our services, just so we wouldn’t be shot on the inside, and the others panicked when the spotlight was switched on. I was brought before the outpost commander, and interrogated for about a week, before they accepted me. I was assigned to the commander who picked me up: Lieutenant Sergei. The military was willing to look the other way about my past, provided I followed orders. Sergei decided if he wanted some work done off the books, I’d do it, or risk ‘details’ about my past being exposed, and hence firing squad for me. He’s kept me in the dark as much as you have been about this operation. If I knew about this, I wouldn’t have radioed them, and got Duty or Freedom to provide support instead.

Sage wasn’t aware his jaw was hanging open, until he looked at Shadow, and saw his jaw hanging open as well. He also became aware of Smiley standing there with two cups of coffee, while trying to drink a third. Sage took one of the cups without a saying anything, while Shadow took the other one.

For once Smiley wasn’t grinning, and looked surprised instead. “I didn’t hear a word of this at all. I was putting the Duty stalker onto a rack, and was checking some instruments. If any of you need to use the bunkers communication system, go ahead. I don’t think Sakharov will mind.” He then opened the door behind him, and picked the Dutier up, and carry-dragged him through it, before closing the door.

Shadow waited until the door had closed. “So, what do we do know? I don’t believe the Mercs are the good guys here; the regular Military is definitely the bad guys. Looks like we’re stuck between a rocks and a hard place here Sage, to the best of my knowledge.”

Sage drank the rest of his coffee, and crushed the empty polystyrene cup.

“Can I trust you Ivan?”

“I’ve never told anyone else that. Only us three and Colonel Asshole know this. The former outpost Major, a guy called Khaletskiy, bit the bullet from some stalkers a while back. Seems the bastard had under the table dealings with them, when he screwed them over. If it makes you feel better, I’ll shoot that asshole of a Colonel myself, to prove it. And I’ll burn down the outpost; destroy my records while I’m at it.”

“Shadow, Ivan. We need to place a few calls.”

I know what to write, I just don't know how to write it.

Any speculation on what the video clip might be?

Either Reaper sending a general message, or Reaper sending a general message that he'll kill the remaining hostages if this or that does or doesn't happen
