When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield - Chapter 101
When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield chapter 101
The talk about the reward that followed was quickly concluded.
It was because only Harry acted unexpectedly, and everyone, starting with confident Jake, gave an acceptable answer.
Words like I don’t want anything more and that the bounty is fine.
That’s why Harry’s answer stood out, but that didn’t mean he hated or disliked Harry.
Rather it wasn’t bad.
I was just taken aback because I didn’t expect it, because it gave me a land and a helicopter anyway.
I don’t know if it’s really giving or borrowing.
Anyway, since the Secretary of State said it was possible, it was clear that it would happen somehow.
In Lareple’s cinematic video, extras, and in real life, he was one of the most powerful and powerful figures in the United States.
That is also the one who has been instructed by the president.
It reminded him of Harry’s outrageous remark in front of him.
‘however… It sure looks good with good hair, right? I never thought I’d say here what I’ve only said once… … .’
Just thinking about it made me laugh out loud.
I don’t know if it was the other day, but it was all the more funny because it was said two weeks ago, the first time I went to the shooting range.
It was a lightly spoken word.
But where does that word come from?
I glanced at Harry in the seat next to me, and he raised an eyebrow at me.
He looked like a puppy looking for praise.
It was like asking if I did well.
‘Yeah, what… Harry’s fine, he’s smart, he’s clever… … .’
Around the time when I came up with a light idea.
Soon, the Secretary of State’s talk began to weigh heavily.
It was a story about the security and future of the United States, which was different from the talk about the weather or vacation before or during meals.
So it seemed like he was talking about it only now that he had emptied all the desserts.
“… As you know, both national defense and security are becoming advanced, mechanized, and artificially intelligent. A world where computers are put into pistols and machines are put into bullets to make guided bullets. Probably, many people think that they can replace soldiers like ground troops, that they should be reduced to a minimum… … .”
He looked around us as if he had lost his strength for a moment, then continued his speech.
“The President and I believe that resources like yours are absolutely necessary. Contrary to us, terrorists are becoming more and more analog. Send and receive messages on paper, communicate by jumping on your feet… Even reconnaissance planes or Humints can’t catch these things. It’s something that people like you have to step in and cut off.”
The moment I heard that, my mouth opened slightly.
I wasn’t impressed or amazed.
This is because it was the same content as the cinematic video in which high-ranking figures such as the Secretary of State and the President appeared.
One of the things I said to a middle practitioner like Robert.
Even if the lines weren’t all the same, the nuance and content were almost the same.
And I knew very well why those words came out.
It wasn’t just congratulations.
It was an element that made the game more probable and made the main story stronger by giving values to the extras as well.
To put it simply, this is one of the parts that revealed Lareple’s workmanship.
By the time I remember the time I played.
At some point, the words were finished.
“… I am not going to make grandiose demands to fight for American security and world peace. Instead, put an end to the terrible and heinous terror, and prevent innocent deaths and sacrifices. You are the only one who can do that. No matter how much you make and support policies, isn’t it a law that can’t be achieved if you don’t do it? So, I wish you well in the future. Like today, we will remember you and support you as much as possible.”
“… Thank you, Minister!”
Jake’s answer came first.
A look of strength, a new determination beyond the impression.
‘If that’s the case… Even people can tear it by hand… … ?’
Just by looking at it, Jake radiated a tremendous aura, while the Secretary of State shook hands with us as he did when he entered.
And when it was my turn.
He used to say thank you and cheer up, but he said something different to me.
“Lee, thank you so much for being an American citizen.”
“I hope to see you again next time.”
After tightening his grip like that, he went over to Harry and shook hands with a cliché.
After saying that I would go first, I left with the men in suits.
The moment the door closed, Jose’s voice was heard.
“Oh, meeting the Secretary of State! oh my god… is this real? really?”
“Iknow, right. To meet you in person like this… … .”
While Rachel also responded as if she was surprised.
I called the man in the suit standing in the corner of the room.
“hey? Are you going to let me go home now?”
“Can I go somewhere other than home?”
“where… … ?”
The blunt man hesitated, so he answered quickly.
“There is a shooting range in eastern Kentucky. Can I go right there? what… But if it takes more than three or four hours to travel, I just go home.”
It was a question because I had more time than I thought.
If the distance is close and you can go in an hour or two, you should be able to shoot for a couple of hours.
Of course, I couldn’t bring my own gun, but it wasn’t a problem because I could borrow it there.
It wasn’t your gun in my gun that mattered, it was your proficiency with the sniper rifle.
I also wanted to try out various sniper rifles.
“Impossible. We are going to go on a certain route.”
“… So let’s do it.”
As expected from the first time, when I was about to say that with a stiff attitude, I heard Jake’s voice.
“As expected Lee… Your attitude deserves an example.”
“No, what… It’s because there’s nothing to do. I have a lot of training to do… … .”
“No, I can’t do that either.”
Then Jake opened his mouth as if he had something on his mind.
“Are you thinking of coming to the Delta meeting?”
“A delta meeting?”
When I asked what he was talking about, Marcus, who was next to him, opened his mouth.
“Active service and veterans gather, shoot, spar, eat barbecue, and so on. Oh, there must be Brad, who practiced shooting before?”
“oh! That’s nice, but… May I go?”
At that, he turned to Jake and asked.
Although he wasn’t particularly sociable, there was no reason not to go to a place where Delta Force graduates would gather.
It’s safe to say that they were the best in the world.
Of course, compared to my characteristics, they are a bit lacking, but aren’t they the ones who stand at the limit of humans anyway?
Whatever it was, there was definitely something to learn.
For example, the know-how of handling a sniper rifle currently being practiced or fighting in a real operation area, not MMA.
And fortunately, the frightening permission returned because it was not reliable.
“I can invite you.”
“oh… also… … . So what about Marcus? Are you a Delta too?”

Looking at Marcus, Jake’s junior from Delta Force, he shook his head.
“No, I have to go camping with my daughters.”
“I am Disney World.”
Even José answered, and Rachel gave a light wry smile as well.
It seems that he recommended it to everyone on the team.
“Then, thank you. When are you going? Oh, can I go to Oregon?”
I asked because Jake’s home is Oregon, and he shook his head.
“uh? Area 51 there… … .”
In LaReple, as in many countries, I remembered Area 51, which had never been mentioned, let alone visited, and asked, and a grim smile returned.
“hahahahaha, that’s what tourists would say. Unfortunately, we’re going to a shooting range hundreds of miles from there. My motive is operating.”
“oh… … .”
“When you come, you just need to bring a betting rifle, gloves, and mouthpiece.”
“Oh oh… … .”
While the smell of Delta Force wafts from the preparations,
Before I knew it, Jake turned to Harry.
“Harry, why don’t you come with me? If you’re from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), everyone will love it. We trained together a lot.”
“ah! yes If you go, of course I will go too.”
As expected, I heard a powerful answer, and it was time to share a few more words of small talk.
The door opened, and the men in suits who had brought us back in.
I knew very well why you came.
As expected, I heard that it was time to go back, and it was about time to lightly say hello to my teammates.
Rachel asked after a light hug.
“Lee, is Harry still living together? Continue until the vacation is over?”
It felt like Harry was sticking with me, but I was better than I thought being together.
It’s just a pity that he’s the same guy.
It was easy to get along with because people themselves were smart and smart, and there were many cases where they acted on their own.
I took care of the uncomfortable things, and I didn’t make any uncomfortable things.
And since we were together, I wasn’t lonely.
Of course, I was envious of him often making video calls with his girlfriend, but there was nothing I couldn’t do.
As long as a nuclear war is prevented, then I thought to play comfortably.
lighten the burden
At the end of that thought, Rachel’s voice was heard.
“A beer I haven’t had before… I can’t drink again.”
I hesitated without realizing it, but I heard Harry’s voice approaching.
“Sir, you don’t drink beer. While I’m at it, I don’t drink at all… … .”
“No, drink well. How much wheat did I roll… … .”
“So be quiet.”
As I spoke, I heard Rachel’s laugh.
“Puhuh, then I’ll call you when I go to Virginia. are you okay?”
“It can’t be okay… … .”
While I was replying, men in suits came and separated the last remaining Rachel and me.
It was going back like when it started.
Sitting in a Benz that is separated from the front seat and coated to hide from outside.
As soon as the car started moving, Harry opened his mouth.
Harry tilted his head to get a wrinkle between his brows.
“With Rachel… Aren’t they colleagues?”
“I think it was because the atmosphere was a bit mysterious between a man and a woman… Is it correct what I expected? Weren’t you not interested in that?”
Between belatedly feeling that the impression was frowned upon.
I shook my head.
“I’m as*xual, you mean?”
“I didn’t mean that, I thought you were only focusing on strategy and training… … .”
I shook my head at the busy explanation.
“It’s not entirely wrong, but it’s not ‘only’ either. Guess who this is… … .”
while shaking your head.
Harry’s mouth fell open as if he had come to a realization.
“Wow, also… It’s amazing, then you’ve been suppressing your instincts and restraining yourself and repeating strategies and training.”
I had to laugh at those words.
“hehehehe, you are also very consistent.”
“Does the story really leak that way? I guess I’ll usually ask something rational… … .”
“Would that matter? Your existence itself is great.”
“Oh, this is a young adaptation… … .”
Then, suddenly, I remembered something I almost missed and said.
“Oh, don’t say that at Delta meetings. Aggro for nothing… … .”
After arriving home like that, I did the scheduled back exercise and cardio, and after spending a few more days similar to it.
The day has finally come.
As Jake said, the heart-throbbing Delta meeting day.
I picked up the luggage I had prepared in advance.
“Come on, Kazuah!”
