Re: Mission 5: Worst Case Scenario - The Action Begins! (TAG ALL)
- Who: Carlos Tarago
Where: Little Port Walter, Alaska
Location: LPW Boat House
Time: 6:45 a.m. (Alaska)
Carlos was tired of getting shot. In his entire 10-year career as a
CIA spook he had been shot no more than four times, but in his short
career as a Special OPS operative, he had already caught up with that
Carlos craddled his shoulder as he fired back at the pinned thieves
near the boat dock. He had seen Pruitt hustle faster than he thought
possible into the boat house, while the other two had gotten pinned
down near the docks.
Carlos was trying to crawl away while still firing when Grimm came
upon the scene and pulled him out of enemy fire.
"Come on man, time to be heros," Reaper said to Carlos as he helped
They ran for cover and Carlos noticed that Reaper's bullets shreded a
lot of the dock as he fired. Armor-piercing bullets, Carlos thought,
and in a Glock too.
Carlos was impressed. Armor-piercers in a pistol were not as
effective as they would have been in heavy weaponry, or even in a
rifle, but the rounds were good enough to slice through body armor
and even one-inch thick steel. Reaper's rounds sliced through the
wood of the docks pretty easily before getting lodged in the thicker
"Better watch those rounds around the gas tanks, Hombre, or we'll all
be toasty critters, no?" Carlos said as he leaned against the wall
they were taking refuge.
When Reaper saw they were untying a boat, he shot around there,
hiting the engine area with one of the bullets, which damaged it so,
causing it to leak out fluid.
"Go get Pruitt, I'll deal wth these two miscreants," Grimm said to
Carlos, covering the demo expert.
"Alright," Carlos agreed running for the boat house as Grimm laid
down cover fire. Carlos glanced the way he was firing and saw the
fuel leaking from one of the three boats tied down to the dock. He
wasn't sure which one Grimm had hit, but if he kept firing that way,
Carlos' dire warning would come to fruition.
"Watch it, Reaper!" Carlos shouted back as he ducked into the boat
house. He put his back to the far wall and aimed his Taurus out
towards the darkness. "Give it up, Pruitt! We know what you've been
up to and you're going down. The only real decision, mi amigo, is if
you want to go quietly, or screaming for tu Mama!"
- Who: Seamus Shaw, Secretary Pierce
Where: Little Port Walter, Alaska
Location: LPW Loading Docks
Time: 7:46 a.m. (Alaska)
It had taken nearly 10 minutes for the wolves to realize the doors to
the gate were open and that they were free, but once they knew, it
took them less than 2 minutes to vacate the area.
As the last of the wolves vanished into the night, Seamus caught
Secretary Piece coming up behind him. "Is it done?" she asked.
"Yes, we have Pruitt and the uranium," Seamus said with a nod. "Dr.
Haven is seeing a medic. She has somehow been brainwashed. We're
hoping to break through to her."
"Any casualties?" Pierce asked as she surveyed the damage to the
building. She shook her head. "Besides the research facility?"
"Yes, we lost 4 team members," Seamus admitted. "As I told you on the
way here. Ripley doesn't keep a very good house."
"Yes, this does not reflect very well on her...leadership," Pierce
admitted. "But I'm not convinced that you deserve the job either."
"What do I have to do to convince you that I'm ready to take over
Special Operations?" Seamus asked frowning.
"You'll have to prove yourself," Pierce said with a definitely nod,
as if she had just made up her mind.
"How?" Seamus said eager to prove himself and hungry to take the
project over as the new head.
"The African campaign," Piece said simply. "Get Dr. Chinua and his
cure for this mysterious illness back, bring down that bastard Akello
"The tribal warlord?" Seamus said surprised.
"The one and only," Pierce said with a fierce look on her
face. "Bring him in for trial for the numerous acts of genocide he
has committed and the jobs yours."
"Kinda of a tall order," Seamus said narrowing his brows.
"It's a tall job, and if you want it, then you know what you have to
do," was all Pierce said before turning and entering the building
among a group of her security guards.
"Where's Wilma!" Pierce bellowed as Seamus turned his face to absorb
more heat from the rising sun.
