DAY 365 - March 15, 2012
You slowly re-position Emad and Yara so you will be able to lunge at the soldier once you know you can reach him. You see the tip of a black combat boot enter your line of sight along the shallow crevice where you are hiding. At that moment you propel yourself around the corner with the stake aimed forward. You see the sheer surprise on the soldier's face before you catch him right where you wanted to. Blood shoots off, covering the container's walls. It's only when you turn towards the light coming from the open doors that you see the soldier's partner, holding up his rifle, and then the crack of a high velocity round, and then the sound of your body thumping on the splintery floor of the shipping container. Your last thought before you lose consciousness is that you have orphaned your children.
You have been killed.
