Episode 23

“You’re a princess,” said Mac as he stared out the window of the safehouse. Sweat made his shirt cling to his lean, muscular frame.

“Really?”

“That makes you priceless to a certain Yemeni Sheik.”

“Wow! I’m a princess?”

“Crap!”

“Is it so bad?”

Mac heaved the heavy bed against the window. “We’ve got company.” He pulled her close as high-caliber rounds splintered the room around them.

Agent Jones crashed through the door and huddled with them. “Chopper coming in!”

“How long?”

“Five mikes.”

Somebody’s in trouble,” quipped Mac.

“We’re gonna die, right?” said Cindy.

“Not if that Marine attack chopper arrives.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Princess and a peek (maybe?) at the big bad! And the action picked up! Great continuation! Where to go? Where to go? Got it, somebody’s dying!

      Thanks, J! Oh yeah, somebody’s gonna die, but let’s hope it’s the bad guys. When that Marine Whiskey Cobra (UH-1W Super Cobra) shows things will get ugly for the bad guys attacking the safehouse. Still, George is out there somewhere. Any chance he’s an assassin?

    Wow. That chopper sounded like it was bad guys at first. An excellent piece. And you didn’t kill anyone 😉

      Haha! Yeah, “but they were very bad men.” (True Lies). I was hoping to surprise folks with the chopper. Thanks Al!

        I’ve not seen True Lies. I think you surprised them. Wonder of it is going to come in soon

        Something to remember about that chopper. It’s only two guys and both are needed to remain in the chopper. It is NOT a Marines have landed scenario. The Whiskey Cobra is often used in ground support roles to pin down enemy forces. So if there’s a bunch of guys attacking the safehouse, the chopper may kill off some of them, but some may have hidden, and the FBI guys will have to deal with them.

        Also, a lot can happen in 5 minutes…

        300 seconds. It takes less than one of those for a bullet to leave a gun and find its target

    Yet, didn’t kill anyone yet, but this seems an action/adventure direction and death will surely follow.

    • EagleAye says:

      It’s certainly going in that direction, but I think we need to find a little romance for Cindy. Poor woman has gone through a tough time. She needs a hug, perhaps something more.

        I will leave those hundred words for someone from the fairer sex. I am understanding the power of the love story in books though. Trying to bring mine forward in my current WIP as I bring it to the climax.

      • EagleAye says:

        Yeah a little romance, or least some sexual tension is good for a story. I’m more of a nuts and bolts guy, but I try to remind myself that romance adds a certain spice. So what is your WIP? Mystery? ScifFi?

        Mystery, a story about a forensics whiz who meets her once in a lifetime during summer vacation from school and eventually discovers a murder connected to the family. My wife got me Dragon for Christmas and I am learning how to dictate to it. I am sure it will be much faster than my typing.

      • EagleAye says:

        Very cool. I like this plot idea. Finally meet somebody awesome, and then their connected to a murder. That’s great sexual tension.

        I hope Dragon works out for you. I’ve heard about it and wondered if it would be helpful.

      Yeah it’s pretty rough for Cindy. Here she only wanted to go out for drinks and now killers are shooting at her. Hopefully she can still salvage the day, and maybe Mac might survive.

  6. Man this is really intense. Marine choppers. I can imagine reading this as one story.

    • EagleAye says:

      It would feel like jumping right into the action I think. I wrote in only one attack chopper though (with 0 troops) so there’s only so much it can do. Anybody with an SA-7 can shoot it down, so Cindy is by no means out of trouble yet.
