Chapter 13




UNIT: The Team Members and Olaedoen

SITUATION: Ready To Deal With The Guards

LOCATION: In The Tunnel Under The Meat Shop

TIME: 2000 hours Local Time, Current Date



Harvey told the group, "Spence has instructed Cowboy and the Dude to distract the guards by making noise in the stairwell. Let's watch them to see they turn their attention to the stairwell."

The team returned to their scooters and straddled him. They sat on their scooters watching to see what the guards’ reactions would be to the noise made by Cowboy and Dude.

Slover scooter drove past the guard, and Slover's large fist caught the guard on the jaw. The force of the blow drove him into the tunnel wall, and he fell to the ground.
