[Translated from the original Czech]
Most of this day remains a blur in my memory. Too much. It is too much. To see Orlov again … working with Rodriguez. I knew he had no honor, no scruples, but I thought when I left Prague, we were done. He was in custody, and I was on my way to America. Lying dog that he is, he must have talked his way out of a jail sentence. Or more likely, bribed prosecutors and judges left and right to save his sorry skin. How he got free is no longer important, though. Orlov is dead, as is Rodriguez. And I am most fortunate I did not join him. I thank the God I no longer believe in that I was placed on Team Alpha Omega, for it was my team members that put those two down. I let my rage at Orlov get the better of me. I forgot my training, firing wildly and with little chance of hitting him … but I am wandering.
To business, then: after the botched assault on Rodriguez’ estate, we retreated to our safehouse to regroup and obtain medical attention. Conversation with Control developed a lead that there would be a “coffee” shipment at the docks. Having rested and bandaged ourselves as best we could in the time available, we went to the docks. Immediately we knew we had found the right place: the gate guard was dead. We approached the ship and found the guards there dead. We were fortunate to pick up the sounds of a truck being started nearby, and went to investigate. We found a truck bomb … no, not just a bomb. A nuclear device. BITCH, our team demolition expert, set to work defusing the device, while I attempted to start the truck, thinking at least I could drive it away from the population center before it detonated. We were almost done when Rodriguez and Orlov drive by, shooting up the place and taunting me. Having finished with the bomb and turned it over to a disposal squad sent by Control, we chased after Rodriguez and Orlov. ACHMED’s superior driving skills allowed us to catch them. I embarrassed myself in the ensuing shootout, letting Orlov get inside my head and spoil my aim. Fortunately, the rest of the team — ACHMED, BITCH, NIKITA, and SILVER — did their jobs and took both targets down.
One other item of note: HUNTRESS, who we earlier neutralized, has escaped. I expect we, or at least ACHMED, will see her again.
- Mission Status: SUCCESS. Primary target BLOODHOUND retrieved. Secondary target HUNTRESS neutralized but escaped. Secondary targets Rodriguez and Orlov killed. Nuclear WMD rendered inoperative.
