The waiting really is the hardest thing. I’m trying to relax, its still going to be about half and hour before the speeches start. My link chimes again. I need to concentrate so I power the commlink down.
A while later, I’m standing by the Liberty Bell watching the target head to the microphone. The action should start soon. I check around me making sure my team is in position. Rodriguez is closer to the bell with his medkit and Agent Braddy is trailing behind the target. I look around trying to see where the bullets might be coming from.
BOONNNNGGGGGGG! The Liberty Bell rings a horribly distorted wobbly tone. The target drops and Rodriguez who was right near the bell just explodes. What a terrible stench! Is that acid? Come on Jamie concentrate!
I run for the target, since Rodriguez is down the secret service agent helps me throw the target on the gurney and we head back for the ambulance. I take a quick look back, the bell definitely is dissolving in places.
We load up the ambulance and start heading north.
Turn around when possible.
Medic 7, where are you headed? Please respond.
I continue my drive north on 6th street. Look in the mirrors and see the helicopter getting pretty low. It can’t be shooting at me right? I mean I have the target in my ambulance. They wouldn’t risk it, right? The motorcycles are still with me trying to figure out what to do.
Make a left turn in 250 feet.
Are you playing pornography at work, while driving a critically injured VIP in an ambulance?!? Wait… is that you? You disgusting pig! I really don’t want to see your home made porn videos. Turn if off now!!
What I? Umm, how did that happen! Turn it off!
Medic 7, where are you headed? If you don’t respond we will be forced to take action!
Is she your….. what kind of pervert are you? Hey, where are we headed? I just got a call from my boss, we should have gone west.
Turn around when possible.
Umm, yeah, I had a call from CrashCart saying there was a crash with a couple of school buses in that direction.
I see a quick streak go by and then a missile hits the road quite a ways in front of us. Is that a warning shot? It is even beyond where I want to turn off onto the highway. I’m frantically jamming the buttons on the video screen to remove the video of me that’s playing. A quick glance in the back, shows Agent Braddy has drawn her gun.
Hey buddy, watch out! The van! The van!
I look up and there is a GMC bulldog heading right for me and there’s my turn. I slam the break and crank the steering wheel to avoid the oncoming vehicle and to make my turn. Concentrate Jamie!!!
The van reacts at the same instant…
Turn around wh…
Nice driving Roy. The navigation/entertainment system is offline. Guess the ambulance is pretty much a wreck. ‘CrashCart’ that really is an ironic name…
