The door to the BLU barracks slams shut behind the Soldier, and Gavin takes off across the field. He crashes noisily through the RED common room, sending the two dogs barking in surprise.
The Sniper all but kicks down the Medbay door. “Bauer!” he pants, catching the Medic’s wrist in a dusty grip. “Amelia and Tim, we can’t find them. We think someone took them east of the base, but they took a car and, mate, please tell me you know that side of the sand.”
“What?” he asked, cornered. The concern and downplayed anger were clear in his voice. “They’re gone? I assume you’ve looked everywhere, Catty and Jonah have swept this entire base too.
“There’s another base just up the road you’re describing, Hoodoo. It was the one I was last assigned to. I know the place nearly front to back.”
“Another base?” The Sniper is silent for a long moment, processing. “You don’t think the REDs…?”
Gavin had cut a new bow back at Sawmill, and there was nothing wrong with it, not really, but it doesn’t feel like his.
The Administrator had given them a day off, and the Sniper had taken his jeep and his backpack deep into the desert. He knows what he’s looking for.
There’s a mob at the door
I hear them calling for my head
