Somewhere in the Jungle
"Matt help me" are the words
he heard from afar.
"Help me" but he could do
nothing but listen to the sreaming coming from the distance.
He was tied up and could do nothing but lie down and listen to
the agony that Margo was going through, she was probably shot
or stabbed or even being beaten up as he was thinking to himself.
He had a gut feeling that this mission wasn't going to be a walkthrough
but Trout gave them the assignment and they all agreed to go
ahead with it.
"Damn" he said to himself
"damn, damn, damn"... he knew he should have
turned it down and not going with his feelings had probably cost
the lives of his team members. He also remembered that he had
promised Margo in the jail when they were captured that he would
tell her how he feels about her, but he can do nothing about
that now. As he finally realised that there was no one to help
them he went back in time and tried to think what he did wrong.
Two Days Earlier at the Silver
"Hello Matt," said Trout.
"Hello Trout, what is it that you
want from my team and I this time?"
"So you want me to get right to
it then"? replied Trout.
"You are the clever one Xavier."
"I need you and your team to go
to the Brazilian rain forest and rescue Senator McKinley's daughter.
She is being held by a guy name Elizio Gozalez and his crew.
They want the senator to drop the charges against his father
who he had identified as the man who killed his wife and they
are also claiming that he is also giving imformation to all the
druglords on the street when the drug raids are happening, but
as all politicians do is deny things."
"Trout the last time we went and
rescued the daughter of someone I got shot and the hostage started
shooting at us, so you see where I'm going with this".
"Yes I do but our intel has shown
us that she has no idea who the kidnapper is and there is a lot
of money involved."
"I don't know about it, let me
call in the team, it will just take a few seconds." Matt
called them up to the office and they all took their places.
Trout explained the mission to them and they all agreed. Trout
left the office and so did Benny Ray and Nick but Margo stayed
behind when she saw the expression on his face. Margo walked
up to Matt, staring at him she blurted out
"Don't worry, the hostage is not
going to start shooting at us, she doesn't even know the guy."
"But she could get to know the
guy during this time and maybe find out the reason why he is
blaming her so called father and why he killed her evil stepmother
and then when we go in and get her she'll start shooting at us,"
replied an agitated Matt.
"I see your point but I don't think
she'll start shooting at us and if she does I'll buy you dinner,"
"I'll hold you to that," said
"I know," Margo said.
Just as Margo was about to walk out
the door he said, "I don't have a good feeling about this
mission Margo and you know I trust my instincts."
"I know Matt but we have promised
Trout and the senator and it wouldn't look good if we back out
Margo left the office and headed to
the basement to meet up with the others as they were packing
the guns for the mission. Meanwhile Matt was still sitting in
his seat thinking about what if this was to happen and many other
The Next Day at the Silver
Matt headed downstairs where the team
was waiting for the debriefing. Nick was his usual self, making
a noise which Benny Ray did not appreciate and Margo was on the
phone getting hold of Deke for the flight arrangements. Matt
walked up to the table and started the debriefing.
"The four of us get dropped off
about 10 kilometers away from the target, we go in, in twos.
Benny Ray and Nick you guys are together."
"No way I'm with dildo," replied
"Yes you are," said Matt.
"Why do I never get to choose who
I want to be with?" asked Nick.
"Cause I'm in charge," replied
Matt, he didn't need Nick moaning right now it just wasn't the
"Margo and I will go in and extract the daughter and will
get out as soon as possible and get straight to Deke in the chopper,"
"Is that clear everyone?"
"Yes sir," replied Benny Ray.
"Yip major," said Nick.
"All clear Matt," replied
"We're good to go," said Deke
as he walked in. They all walked out but Margo took Matt aside
and said to him that everything is gonna be alright and that
she trusts him with her life and she doubts that anything will
Present Day in Brazilian Jungle
They landed in the jungle 10km out from
the target and started heading towards the camp. Benny Ray and
Nick went their path but Matt and Margo could just see them.
"How is Steve?" asked Matt.
"What?" replied Margo.
"Just making conversation until
we get there, sorry," said Matt.
"No it's okay, actually I broke
up with him months ago don't you remember me telling you?"
"Actually I do, I think I just
forgot," said Matt.
"Ya right you forget, the day that
happens is the day I die," Margo said with a hint of sarcasm.
"Now be careful what you say Margo.
I don't want that happening you hear me," Matt said in a
"I didn't think he was the right
guy for you," said Matt.
"Then who is?" questioned
"Me," Matt replied hesitantly.
"Excuse me," Margo said.
"Yes you heard right I said me.
I think I should get a chance with you again considering I know
you much better then Steve did and I've been through much more
"You're kidding right," Margo
"When do I kid around Margo,"
"Actually most of the time but
this is not the right time to talk about it. We are in the middle
of a mission where our lives could be in danger if we don't concentrate,"
"I know but the last time we took
a mission like this I nearly lost my life and during the time
I was unconcious I had a dream where you had died, Benny Ray
was blind and C.J had half the side of his face blown off. The
thing is that I didn't get a chance to tell you how I felt,"
said Matt, he felt relief when he said what he had to say.
"It's not the right time Matt,
we will speak about it when the missions over okay," Margo
They did not speak until they got to
"Benny Ray come in," Matt
"Yes sir what must we do,"
Benny Ray asked.
"You guys go in, in front of us,
we'll go in behind and head towards the daughter," Matt
"Yes sir, lets go," an enthusiastic
Benny Ray replied.
They headed in with their guns ready
to shoot the first person who got in their way but it wasn't
just one but it was about 15 of them.
"Sir we've got a problem,"
Benny Ray shouted.
"We have no choice but to shoot
so shoot," Matt orded them.
Their were people falling all over the
place and even more coming out of the house and that is when
he saw the daughter coming out of the house with a gun and started
shooting at them.
"Sir she's shooting at us,"
Benny Ray said.
"Don't shoot her we've got to get
her even if she is shooting at us," Matt said.
As Matt said that Nick went down, it
looked like he had been shot in the shoulder. He was out for
the count. Benny Ray started shooting at the guy who shot Nick
and while doing that running over to him. As he got there he
was shot in the leg and then hit over the head by one of the
men thinking he was dead.
Matt and Margo both dropped their guns
and stood with their hands held high.
Elizio Gonzalez walked up to them with
the daughter of the senator and said, "Is this what you
want," and kissed the daughter.
"I told you so," Matt said
"Shut up you idiot," and Elizio
knocked Matt over his head with the end of his gun.
As Matt fell to the ground he heard
the screams of Margo yelling no!
He realised now he shouldn't have taken
the mission no matter how much it was worth. They should have
called in the marines or someone else, not them. He could hear
Margo screaming and Elizio and the daughter laughing. They were
beating her up severely because she never ever screamed when
being beaten up normally. Matt remembered that he had a knife
on his right leg. He tried so hard to get it hurting himself
in the process but he got the knife and started cutting himself
loose. He lured one of the remaining men close and stabbed him
but he heard someone behind him and turned like lightning only
to find Nick and Benny Ray standing next to Deke.
They worked out a plan how to get the daughter and Margo out
safe. Matt said he promised Margo he'll get her out alive not
dead because he had just told her how he felt and was not prepared
to lose her now just when he had told the truth.
Matt walked up to the door of the house
and kicked it down and started shooting the last 5 men. He walked
up to Elizio and said, "Where are they?"
"They're inside the room but I
would be careful if I was you," Elizio said.
"Well guess what, you're not me,"
Matt replied and gave Benny Ray the signal and within that split
second Elizio fell to the floor.
"Lets get them and get out,"
"Great idea dildo," Benny
They burst into the room and tied up
the daughter who was in the process of kicking Margo and got
her out of there
They left the Brazilian forest and landed
back in the United States of America. As they landed they pushed
the daughter out of the helicopter and let the marshals deal
with her. They rushed Margo to the hospital and she went in for
emergency surgery for taking out a ruptured spleen.
Trout entered the hospital but Matt
had nothing to say to him but wanted the money. "I told
you I didn't like this mission but no you had to send us, you
couldn't just send in marines or other teams," Matt said
without looking at him.
"You are the best Matt and you
know it," Trout said.
"That doesn't matter, what matters
is that I have three wounded with a gunshot to the shoulder,
another with a gunshot to the leg and my best friend in the operating
room having emergency surgery, so did you hear me Trout?"
Matt said looking at him straight in the eyes.
"Yes Matt and I owe you for what
you have done, how about a months vacation?" Trout answered.
"That will be fine now please I
have someone I care deeply for inside that room and I must go
and see her now," Matt said and walked off to room 34D.
Margo was lying on her bed wide awake.
"I guess I owe you that dinner
Matt," Margo said.
"Why yes you do madam Margo,"
and as he walked up to her he planted a gentle kiss on her lips.
