We were just walking down the coast, admiring the lovely radioactive green color the water. Everything seems greener with night vision googles on I've learned. Suddenly, a blinding sensation violated my pupils. As my pupils dilated, I heard someone whisper "Vehicle"
Then I see it, the headlights lighting up the area in front of me like all the power of the sun was shining there. I had to remove my NVG's just to be able to see.Two of us moved up the road and took positions to question this individual of their activity in this known dangerous area.
As we approached the vehicle sped off, only to be intercepted by the 2 of us up the road. As the vehicle stopped and the man got out, I had a terrible feeling this would soon turn ugly.
My 2 Comrades started to question the man, asking what he was doing. He was constantly vague, and kept aiming at us, clearly scared and nervous, a dangerous combination. Constantly he was looking around, as if he was waiting for someone. I took this as a hint to search the perimeter.
As I crept around the hill which was south west of the vehicle I thought I spotted something, or someone.
Suddenly the image of a man was not even 20 meters from me, prone and watching the car. I panicked, and immediately raised my weapon on him asking who he was and what he was doing here.
My heart was pounding as I knew this must have been an ambush at this point, my radio was full of chatter about who this man was and I quickly had to make a choice deciding this mans fate.
I hesitated when he spoke, " who are you?" Why this question snapped me from my fear and suspicion of this man still bewilders me, but regardless I asked him back "who are you?!"
He then tells me he just saw the lights and approached, just as we did I thought. I still had my rifle pointed at him, but his nonchalant-nes made me feel more at ease. I asked him for his name and Identification which he promptly gave. His name was Ian Kassuja Soon I found myself even almost trusting this stranger who only moments before I thought was certainly set up to ambush us.
Having felt good about possibly saving this innocents life I tell him to walk with me, and we both lowered our guns and chatted while the others questioned the suspicious character on the road.
In the corner of my eye I followed the movement of one of my allies, watching this mysterious mans every move, waiting.
As the man and I chatted, we noticed tensions rising at the car, things were going to heat up very soon, I could feel it. Then Just as I warned the man that things might get ugly soon and he should leave, I see him give a strange twist in his body, almost like a signal. I at first thought maybe it just was me being paranoid, but then he did the same awkward pointing of his body again.
That was all I needed. I immediately drew my weapon and asked why he was doing these movements, his response was dodgey at best "I was stretching" now I knew he was with them. I immediately started mimicking his movements to hopefully confuse whoever was watching from a far. I ordered him to drop his weapon and stop moving, my heart now pounding hard, all the while I am wondering If I am really going to have to shoot this man . He is not complying, my comrades are getting nervous, tensions are escalating not only with me but with the man at the car as well.
I keep telling him to drop his gun now! You have 10 seconds or I WILL SHOOT YOU!
He continues to pretend to be hard of hearing, afraid he is stalling for another to get a shot off on me I start circling the man, my heart is literally beating out of my chest with anticipation of what will happen when suddenly I hear it;
That Crack of a round flying so close to me that it blurs my vision. Time seems to stop, I hear the echo of the round, I hear shots start to erupt at the car and then for a split second I feel frozen by fear..
Immediately I snap out of it and fire wildly into the man.
Bullets now raining down on me from the unknown sniper I run as fast as I can for cover. I hear the cracks of rounds breaking the sound barrier and the sickening thuds of the rounds hitting the ground around my feet and the wall next to my body.
By the gods I manage to get behind cover without being hit.
As I re-coupe from the near death experience my hearing starts to come back and I hear the screams of my teammates in the distance. My friend behind me is hit, and I hear another is down near the car.
My mind is racing, I felt torn. In one hand, I am finally safe after what felt to be an eternity from running away from those snipers rounds and the thought of leaving the sanctuary behind this wall seems mad, but at the same time the screams of my teammates made me sickthinking that they are in danger while I huddle against a wall.
Before I realize it I'm already off, heading back into the open. I don't look for the sniper, I just run. All I hear are the screams.
He's on the beach!! This is my destination.
I flank wide right, going south east, and manage to not get hit yet again. As I hit the beach, I remember that snipers are not my only enemy here, the multiple Bursts of 7.62x.51 have now attracted a hoard of these "things" that are heading right at me.
I know am running from the dead, looking for my dying friends, and all the while looking for these murders who could be anywhere. God only knows how many there are.
I use the night to my advantage and run through the bushes along the coast, buying me some time to get away from the monsters.
Suddenly in front of me I see the outline of a man, a living man, firing. I know it's the one who killed Ivan. Suddenly I am more filled with rage and adrenaline then ever before. He's far, and moving, but I have one advantage, surprise.
I know once I shoot I will have blown my cover to him, the sniper, and the dead.
I'm breathing so hard I can hardly hold my gun, let alone aim to fire a precision shot. I HAVE to stop moving to be able to get this shot. To save my friends, and to avenge Ivan.
So I stop. I hold my breath, even as I hear the dead closing in on me I remain still.
In for three. 1, 2, 3. Hold for three, 1. 2, 3, out for three 1, 2, 3... Just as I finish lowering my heart rate I see him lay down in the sand.
The dead are now to me, I can feel them starting to grab me.
My aim is true now, I take aim, switch my rifle to burst mode, hold, press the stock of the rifle deep into my shoulder, breathe out... and fire.
I see the man drop.
He starts to move and I let another burst into him. I knew I had just killed a man.
My first kill. To you, I will never forget on the beach together
Edit: Later reports indicate I killed both men.
These fucking cannibals will not stop. There is no reason still trying. We saw some of the military, but they were already made into cannibals. This sickness, it does not stop. We have seen others though, also cannibals. They still talk and act more like normal people but are also eating people. They must have recently been with the infection. We must exterminate these demons. We must save our lands.
When all we had seen were these cannibals, Jiri and I found a group of people. It was a strange sight to see so many, almost happy people together. Sort of took me back like things were maybe not so bad. But then I realized where I was and that it could all be a trap...
They were well armed, but did not seem like threat to people. They were cautious but let us in. They killed kill some cannibals, but seemed confused on what the cannibals were. Some of them were good people, come to our land to help. Others I did not get to know. Perhaps they might live, but some were too nice. They will not live long here in how things have been going. Something we learned was that there is some place called a city for survivors or some shit like that. It sound suspicious to me. Probably a Russian death camp. I don't know. They were going to this camp up north. We did not follow, but will make a trip there once we find the rest of the brothers.
Today was good day. We found a filthy Russian. He asked us for help, he was hungry. We start to ask, as we always do what he wanted with our land and why come here. This is where he began to act very suspicious. He kept not answering. Finally little brother and I got tired of this mans lies. We took him into the woods and tied him to tree. Here little Jiri got some information. This man was Russian, sent to our land with some Vials with the infection. It was as we originally thought was now true. Russia was doing this, or at least played a part in it. He was a mercenary too. We tried to give this scum a chance at life, but he obviously did not care anymore. He said that we were crazy. he did not care for our people, and laugh at the hundreds and thousands of dead innocents here.
Little brother made sure this type of evil man was no longer a threat to the people here. We found his radio though, and a map with markings on it. This is leading us one step closer to finding the cause. What we learn today is that Russia and Britain were wending people over to spread infection.
Little brother did good today. He did not hesitate or take shit from Russian. He stayed strong, and demand answers. Little brother grows up so fast.
Glory to Napa.
