-Moscow, Three Years after the Maelstrom Incident.
Scar walked down the long forgotten streets of Moscow, once crowded with millions of people it now sat silent as a graveyard. Scar looked up at the great Moscow Kremlin, it sat there like an ancient relic of the past, empty and bleak. He scanned it carefully and noticed it, a glimmering light, someone was inside. He quickly raised his Vintorez sniper rifle and stared through the scope, sure enough there was a light. He quickly and quietly headed for the Kremlin and looked around, no one as far as he could see. He quickly pulled out an old grappling hook and threw it over the walls, tugging hard to make sure it stayed in place he began to scale the walls. He reached the top and quickly ran to the nearest door and entered. Quietly he crept through the long cold hallways until he reached the source of the light, he heard voices.
“sir we need more time” said the first voice
“NO!” said the second “the chamber is destroyed, both artifacts lost, there was never any hope with that path, there was only a chance it could help us anyways and now look where it left us, our fleets are captured, thousands of our men are now dead and our armies are scattered all over the world”
“but sir, we might be able to repa...” said the first
“it cannot be repaired” said the second “face it, the stalkers have eliminated our chance of that”
“but what are we going to do?” said the first
“we must find the Monolith” said the second
“and then?” the first asked
“then we find the Khan's Eye in Mongolia” said the second
“and then?” the first asked again
“we find the Sultan's Hand in the Middle-East” said the second ”and then we must find the Maelstrom Core and the Chernobyl Heart”
“for what purpose sir?” the first asked
“to finish what the American's started” said the second “and after that we have one last task”
“what is that sir?” the first asked
“we must find and kill... Strelok” said the second
“of course sir, I shall ready the men” said the first “we shall send first regiment to deal with these tasks”
“no...” said the second “send them all”
“all... sir?” the first asked
“all of them, it will be an inferno of fire and death, a Crimson Inferno” said the second “and all who oppose us will fall”
Scar carefully backed up and turned around, realizing what he overheard, he quickly ran down the hall and back to the wall. He quickly climbed over it and dislodged his grappling hook and stowed it in his backpack. He turned around and hurried back through the long cold streets of Moscow. He needed to find Strelok and warn him, but how can he find someone who dropped of the face of the earth three years ago...
One thing can be sure, if he doesn't get this information to him soon, the whole world will suffer this 'Crimson Inferno'.
And there it is folks, over a year ago I ended my Fallen in the Rain series with a bit of a bad note, now its time to finish this once and for all with one last climatic part to the old series...
