Then a noise behind him, the soldier’s head snapped around and he released the trigger.
“Hey bud, what you see from your position?” asked his partner Brennan. “You know you’re damn lucky I didn’t turn around and shoot you! Before you so intelligently crept up behind me, I was lining up a shot on our possible target.”
“He’s not our target, I’ve seen that guy before he’s a nobody. Judging by the movement I could see from the northern side I don’t think they’re coming here. Not now at least.”
“Damn it Brennan. Are you saying command got it wrong AGAIN?” he said while shooting a stern glare at his friend. “This is why I do not like leaving this to some desk jockies.”
“Looks to be the case pal, let’s pull out of here and head back to base. We can go over our intel and figure out who and where this person might be next.”
I bet by now you’re wondering who I am and what it is I do. For now just call me Agent Abel. No that is not a first name, we aren’t on a first name basis here. I work for a special branch of the Canadian Armed Forces. I’m not Canadian by birth, I just grew up here. It’s home and a place I’ll protect until my last dying breath. My knucklehead partner is Agent Brennan, we’ve come up through the ranks together. Know each others moves inside out and back again. That’s about all I’m willing to give ya for now. You’ll find out more eventually. Maybe.
“Hmm sources seem to think they’re heading to the pyramids. No one is really sure why though” said the soldier. Brennan responded “Well we both know there has to be something there that they’re lookin’ for right?”
“Yea I just wish we knew what, would make planning out our moves a bit easier but then again ain’t nothing ever been easy for us right partner?”
“Indeed.” said Brennan.
“Let’s get all of the gear together, get ready to get on bird and head east. It’s going to be a long flight so there’s plenty of time to go over our plan of attack. Remember though we don’t we don’t know anything outside intel says they “should” be showing up there.”
“So what you’re saying Abel is bring everything right? Right?” Agent Abel nodded, “Yeah Brennan bring it all, we’ll need the Humvee too. I’m not trekking all the way from our drop point to those damn pyramids on foot.”
“Woooohooo!” shouted Brennan. “Who gets to drive? Me or you?” If you couldn’t tell already. Bren is a bit of a loose cannon, kinda gotta watch him, make sure he doesn’t blow everyone including us up. “You can drive Bren, I’ll scout. We need to get moving, the pyramids of Egypt are calling and we do not want to blow our chance at catching this target.”
With that thought in mind the duo packed their gear and prepared to travel to the hot deserts of Egypt. The journey to the pyramids was not going be an enjoyable experience but if it meant catching up to, or even better beating the target there, it was worth doing.
“It will all be worth the hassle, I can feel it.” Abel said to Brennan as they boarded the plane. “I hope your feeling isn’t just indigestion this time.” quipped Bren. Abel punched him the arm and closed the door.
The intercom clicked on and the pilots voice, a familiar one at that, came over, “Buckle yourselves in and prepare for takeoff.”
“Yea yea Dom we get it, bumpy ride and all that shit.” said Brennan as they clicked the their belts in. “Alright so our drop point is approximately eight kilometers from the pyramids. We need to drop a ways out to avoid being detected.” Abel laid more of the plan out. “From there we head east until we reach this ridge here. Weather shows possible sandstorms but that might actually aid us if it’s daytime. Provides some cover.”
“The humvee is outfitted with a heavy duty parachute that’s set deploy at a specific height, we’ll drop it first then follow. Don’t want that big ass thing getting in our way or worse landing on us. We’ve got a long way to go still, let’s get some shut eye until we’re close Brennan.”
