When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield - Chapter 149
When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield chapter 149
It was late afternoon.
It was around the time when the west area was spreading red and the east side where the sun had risen was covered with darkness.
I got off the minibus and headed to my accommodation.
The distance to the entrance is only 10m inside.
After stepping on the flagstones laid out like sidewalk blocks, you would find yourself in the hotel lobby before you knew it.
Just like the past week.
But something moved beside me.
Before I could even check what it was, it flew towards me.
It wasn’t an enemy or anything dangerous.
It was only my Charlie team that was this close, especially Harry, who sat next to me, and Phillip, who got off the bus right after me.
So the moment I turned my head, I heard a shout.
“Rachel 2 ii iii!”
I reflexively turned my gaze to those words.
Shouting is also shouting, but it was because the words contained in it were shocking words.
It was a word that could be related to an accident, so I turned my eyes to the surroundings.
And I found them on the left and right of the driveway.
As Philip said, it was two people.
Even among the locals, he was neatly dressed and did not look like a mercenary or a terrorist.
The problem was elsewhere.
The fact that they were holding something and poised to throw it.
“… … !”
It wasn’t accurate because I witnessed it in a split second, but I could easily guess what it was.
Private explosives made from pipes, also known as pipe bombs.
I was sure.
Otherwise, there was no reason for Philip to throw himself out with a roar.
Also, I had a phone call before he ran into me.
The content was expected.
He must have delivered information related to the behemoth.
So, without answering, he would have shouted that there were two behemoths and jumped in.
Before long, it collided with Philip’s body.
Of course, the moment I started to fall backwards because I couldn’t be pushed away.
I couldn’t stand it unscathed.
It was because Philip was a man as strong as I was, and he was not prepared in any way because he was walking.
so when it comes time to go
I realized one more thing.
My hand pulled out the Glock 19 from my side and held it as I trained and guided by my instincts.
It was to neutralize the enemy.
And then I realized
He made eye contact with a man about to throw a pipe bomb.
It wasn’t just the gaze.
The throwing stance was also towards me. Come to think of it, the timing of the throw was right after I got off.
All of the Alpha team that got off first went into the hotel, and almost all of the Bravo team passed by.
That means I am the target.
As a result, his hands moved as he trained and practiced instinctively and terribly.
The place to go is the Glock 19 attached to the right waist belt.
It also had one foot in the chamber.
There was no need to load.
Grasping the handle of the gun and pulling it out, I pressed the slide stop to release the safety device, and at the same time moved my index finger as if I was brushing the trigger guard.
All actions were performed naturally and perfectly.
I couldn’t hold the gun with both hands because Philip had run over me, but one hand wasn’t bad either.
It was because the opponent was close enough to throw pipe bombs.
The straight line distance with me is about 20m.
The minimum safe distance when throwing a fragmentation grenade was a range that could be covered with one hand without recoil or shaking with both hands.
The moment the cold trigger touches your fingertips.
Pressure was applied to the index finger.
Just in time, I saw a pipe bomb in my hand in a small dot sight.
Without further ado, it exploded right away.
And at the same time as the shooting, I moved the sight and the line of sight, and I shot right away in quick succession.
It was the same amount of time as a fraction of a decimal point.
I felt a bit rushed, but I couldn’t help it.
It was because the wind pressure and heat felt as the bomb exploded with the first shot.
The moment the second shot was fired.
As soon as his back hit the ground, a roar rang out.
I felt the pressure along with the heat.
The moment when you feel a throbbing feeling as if fragments of a pipe bomb were stuck in it.
Acrid smoke came over my field of view, and at the same time, a sharp tinnitus sounded in my ears.
It was because I had the headset hanging around my neck. There was no time to write.
It’s a shame because he was wearing a bulletproof helmet, otherwise he might have broken his head from falling backwards.
Eventually, as I opened my eyes closed because of the dust, my body was dragged to the rear.
In an instant, several meters were dragged.
To be precise, it feels like pulling the top of a bulletproof vest.
He raised his head hastily and saw Jake’s face, his thigh-like neckline, his lush golden beard, and his mouth open in anger.
Harry could be seen holding a gun next to him.
“… Team Leader! I’m fine!”
I shouted, but I didn’t hear Jake’s answer.
It seemed like he was talking even with saliva splashing, but the tinnitus prevented him from hearing the proper contents.
It’s just that the voice sounds hoarse.
Just as he was about to reply that he couldn’t hear, Jake, as if recognizing the situation, let go of his hand and gave a hand signal.
The meaning of asking for the number and direction of enemies.
As soon as I saw that, I immediately pointed in the direction of the enemy with my finger and answered.
“I hit and detonated the bombs of 2 enemies on the left and right of the entrance to the dorm. Probably both are dead.”
Jake gesticulated, pulling Phillip to the end.
‘Go to the back of the bus with Harry, side guard.’
Again, it was a quick and clear instruction.
I quickly ran to the back of the bus, but fortunately, from then on, I began to hear voices little by little.
The tinnitus, like metal, seemed to still linger in the pinna, but that was fine.
I’ve been through a lot while serving in the military.
It wasn’t even unfamiliar.
When I put on the headset and listened to the radio, I heard clearer words.
– Bravo! Report casualties!
– Bravo 1 dead! Bravo 1 dead, checking injured… … !
– Know your surroundings! delta! How did it go?!
– This is Delta! Alleys and buildings nothing special!
After that, I heard a voice other than our G&G Corp team.
– This is Kenny Young. It’s safe inside the hotel, so please go inside immediately. Our security team and Alpha will go out to cover.
It was Kenneth Young of the Consular Agency.
After his words were finished, instructions fell with Jake’s permission.
– Delta! When Alpha and the office security team come out, take the injured Bravo and go inside!
– Delta 1 OK!
-Charlie waits vigilantly!
Then, as Kenneth said at the hotel entrance, the Alpha team and the security team came out, and the G&G Corp Delta team, which was guarding the opposite side of us, moved.
At the same time, Jake looked at the situation and issued an order.
It was to move safely as much as possible by changing the position of the boundary that Rachel, Marcus, and Jose were in charge of, moving, and working together with Alpha.
At the very back, Jake moved as if to protect us all, and that’s how we entered the hotel.
I secured safety by locking the door, but no one was relieved.
It couldn’t have been.
It was because it was crowded with words shouting here and there.
“Call the rescue team immediately!”
“morphine! No f*cking morphine?!”
“Aren’t there transfer beds in the hotel? If you don’t have one, make one and bring it!”
I also helped out.
It had to be. It was because I had detonated the bomb and badly injured the rear of the Bravo team passing nearby.
The Bravo team leader died instantly, and two of his teammates were seriously injured.
I couldn’t help but care.
It was because Philip wrapped me up and got a shrapnel instead.
Fortunately, there were no fatal injuries.
Thanks to wearing a plate carrier, the back plate was not pierced, and it was only slightly injured below the waist.
Of course, the wounds were not light.
The pain was so severe that I even passed out.
“… … .”
It was dark in many ways, but there was nothing I could do about it.
this was the best
If the bomb had been hit late and exploded in the middle, the damage would have been greater, and if it fell towards me and exploded, the terrorists were more likely to proceed with their next activity outside the killing range.
Throwing more explosives or firing a gun, etc.
Even if it wasn’t for that, there was a chance that he would have survived and escaped.
Of course, because of the death, I couldn’t check and ask what happened, but it was too greedy to even want the two to survive.
Just looking at the two bodies visible through the broken windows of the front door of the hotel, it was clear that they were dead.
At first glance, several parts of the body were missing, and blood pooled beneath them.
After completing the first aid measures, it was time to sit down next to the unconscious Philip.
I heard a voice calling me from the side.
“Did you take care of it?”
This time, it was Andrei, who had been selected as the team leader of Alpha Team.
I nodded at him, who frowned, and the answer came back with a sigh.
“good job. It would be better if these f*cking assholes survived and ended up in prison for the rest of their lives, but if it weren’t for you, Charlie would be dead. Bravo, a few of them must have been hurt… Perhaps Jake’s huge body was also swept away by the explosives.”
Then he looked at me as if examining me and asked.
“Are you not hurt? You say you can’t hear?”
“That’s fine. Maybe it’ll be better if I get some rest.”
“The limbs? Are all your fingers attached? That would be the most important thing to shoot.”
“Ah, I’m fine. Phillip stopped the shrapnel from pouring into me.”
As I chinned Philip, who took off his shirt and bandaged it, Andrei smiled.
“I thought he was an army officer, but… You did something very useful.”
After that, other team members also told me that I had worked hard.
It was worth it.
Although Bravo’s team leader died, it was because no one else was dead.
There were two more seriously injured, but they held on tenaciously.
probably would have survived.
That was the opinion of Harry and other members of the medical team.
It was a fortunate result considering that two pipe bombs exploded at a distance of around 20m.
Even the amount of explosives seemed quite large.
It was the traces of the brick floor bursting and the soot.
It’s like being hit by a bomb.
The moment I saw it, I got a creepy feeling.
‘Maybe he was trying to blow up the bus… … .’
If it had been thrown at a minibus rather than at a person, it would have been 100% hit.
Of course, it would be difficult to be certain of my death, but there was a high possibility that something would be broken or seriously injured.
Because the explosion was quite strong.
While I was doing that, I heard the sound of a heavy car engine along with a siren from outside.
The Bolivian police had arrived.
Just as I was about to think I was lucky, Jake’s voice rang out.
“fist! All personnel other than Delta who can move must remain alert! Permission to open fire in case of unauthorized approach by Bolivian police!”
“… … ?!”
I stopped at the unexpected sound.
Permission to fire on the power border?
This was no different from considering the police as enemies.
‘no way… … ?’
Come to think of it, Kenneth’s gaze looking out from Jake’s side was particularly sharp.
A person who is officially a clerk in the consular agency, but in reality is a CIA agent.
His eyes were shining as if he were looking at an enemy.
The fact that such a person is doing that means that he smelled something suspicious from the Bolivian police.
‘The police were involved… … ?’

Looking back, considering the bombing, it was an opportunity created by the police.
The local drug cartel, the Santa Cruz Cartel, was said to have moved, but in the end the police called us and let us go.
That the negotiations were over.
As many thoughts intertwined, Kenneth’s mouth opened.
“I will go with the security team.”
