    Prologue

    Rise, my clandestine, thy secrecies invoked.
    06:01
    “Move, General”
    “You’ve got to move, sir”
    The General seemed to freeze in his tracks. Probably contemplating his next action, Charlie thought.
    Charles Lee was the general’s second in command and if his superior won’t do something and do it soon, his general would be dead meat. A sequence of events that would mean only one thing: He, Charlie, is going to take command of The Squad. A certainly desired post, but he didn’t feel ready for it. Not in the slightest.

    Fall, from distant worlds, red eyed skies above.
    06:02
    The sniper, First Sergeant Corey Quigley, has lain in the same position for 40 minutes. Steady breathing. Camouflaged.
    This guy, Charlie thought, had it all figured out: Wind Speed, Temperature, fuckin’ Barometric Pressure. But you know what the most important thing he said is? Patience. The target is attracted to my scope, he said. Always. If you wait enough time, the enemy is toasted.

    Hark, Lures of the Siren.
    06:03
    Wesley Michaels is a ladies man. A gambler. An addict. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. At twenty-seven, he was twice divorced, did a year in jail and impregnated three women. Wes could have been the perfect soldier if not for his authority problems. Undisciplined Fearless Human Machine. or “The Pirate” as he was nicknamed since boot camp.

    Beyond the veils of dawn.
    06:04
    A helicopter’s engine is heard in the distance. The general is awakened from his trance.
    “This stake out is useless.” Wes whispered.
    “Shhh” Colonel Lee tried to silence him. This stake out is of the UTMOST importance, damn it, Wes, didn’t you listen to the briefing?
    General David Anderson looked at his compass.
    “Fire”
    Quigley squeezed the trigger.
    An explosion – 10,000 nuclear weapons just went of, Wes thought – brightened the eastern horizon.
    “Holy Smokes” Wes Shrieked.
    “Mission accomplished” Anderson declared. “We’ll convene at the usual rendezvous point at fifteen hundred hours.”

    To be continued…
