I need my creative juices to start going around for my novel so I created this to keep a few of you all to entertain you. Oh heres a status thing to show you what the main char looks like. Name: Harry Kreig Rank: Private Appearance: 6'4, Fairly fit, advanced agility. Personality: Determined, Formal, Loyal As the copter started to rotate itself, Major Wilkins waved at me. I saluted him because of are good work as a team. The others have already been transfered to other squads. "Good luck, Private Kreig!" He yelled as the copter now lifted. "I hope the your new squad notices your great potential!" The copter had finally started flying off and Wilkins was heading to retirement. My name is Private Harry Kreig. I am in the U.S army and my squad has disbanded because of are Major's retirement. I have been assigned to a new squad. They say that they could use my help of situations. Their outpost is around the Afghanistan's borders so it is frequently attacked every once month. I walked to my helicopter and was now being brought to my new team. I closed my eyes and took a rest for the trip. 1800 Hours I have made it to my outpost. The sergeant greeted me when I dropped down to the helipad's surface. "Ah.. Hello Private!" He greeted. "I'm Sgt. Jerry Irehan, other known as 'Sarge'. Let me take you a tour around here." He patted my back and lead me to the barracks. He took me inside the barracks and into a room where there were a few beds and two M4A1s with a gernade launcher attached on two beds. Two men were eating and chatting but the Sergeant interrupted and ordered them to stand. "This is Private Kreig, and he will be are newest Newbie." Sarge introduced. "Kreig, this is Pvt. Jeret and Baron. Their in are squad and are idiots." Jeret had a headband which made himself look a little threatning and and made his dark skin on the top of his head shine a little. He lifted his head a little up as a greeting. Baron just smiled and said a simple "hello". I waved to the both of them and wondered if this squad is... like my own.. or just screw ups. Anyway, Sarge started heading out the door and I followed. As we walked to the Armory, he pointed to a soldier who sat on a turret case. "That there is Private Keith." He notified me. "We call him 'Emo boy'." "Why?" I asked. "Look yourself." He answered. I squinted at the pale kid and saw him cut himself with his own combat knife. "Shouldn't we-" I was interrupted. "That'll only depress the kid so just leave 'em." Sarge continued on. He pushed me a little hard and lead me into the armory and three more units in are squadron. There I saw a blond hair'd dude taking off his boots and two women putting their bulletproof vests into their locker. "The blonde one is Lt. Will." He continued on. "These two fine ladies are Mjr. Ishiki Kurisaw, just call her 'Kuri' and here is Cpl. Janette Jones." Kurisaw flipped her hair a little to the right and scolded Sarge about.. me?! "I told you to just wait leave the newbie alone!" She shouted at him. "You ladies would of taken a year to get reay for the proper greeting so I had to do it before he got bored and just transfer to some other squad." He comebacked. "Why you..." Kuri growled. "Hey, uh... its okay really, Sarge really showed me everyone I needed to know about." I interrupted. Kuri stopped and took a deep breath. "Tell everyone to meet in are room, Sarge." She ordered. "Before I strangle you." "Yes, Sir." Sarge sarcasticly said. He walked out of the armory as Kuri walked out too, cursing in japanese and slamming the door behind her. "Don't worry about them two." Will said. Will had the British accent.. but atleast I could understand what he mostly said. "Yeah, they always argue." Jones said. "Like a divorced couple." Hoyle laughed and continued on dressing into his casual outfit. Jones took my hand and started pulling me... to the barracks I guess. We got there and Kuri started the meeting. "We are going on some mission to clear out a village that was recently taken over by the enemy." She lectured. "We are takin' the jeep there but they might have heavy armor there... you hear that Jeret?" "Yeah, Yeah, whatever." Pvt. Jeret said. "Anyways, you, I mean you newbie, will be dropped off on a sand dune which is infront of the village." She continued. "Its your first mission with us, so I don't want any screw ups from you." I sighed... I'm an expert but... these guys are just.... this is just stupid. "Baron... I want you to rush in the middle of the road and take out as many hostiles you can." She planned. Wait... what the hell.. sending one person in a suicide run? But why? I pondered but Kreig leaned over to me a little and started to explain something. "Oh yeah... Baron is a mentally retarded soldier. Nobody knows how he joined or even why but he's useful for being bait, guinea pig, and lifting heavy ass objects." Sarge added on. Oh my god... Why did I transfer to this platoon? The speech was done and everyone headed to their beds for the so called "mission" tomorrow... its not even worth my skills... Jesus. 0500 hours We all geared up in the armory. Sarge held a Bullpup, Kuri equipped an MP5, Baron and Jeret had a M4a1 with gernade launcher, Keith had a G3, Jones carried dual M9s, and Will had a standard M4 Carbine. And I? Well... I was assigned to stay behind...so I grabbed a Magnum Sniper. We all headed to the jeep. Jeret was the gunner and Sarge drove. "So Newbie, how long you've been serving?" Jones asked. "Two years and a half, Corporal." I replied. "No need to get formal, private." She said with a snicker. "In this unit, we don't need no stinkin' respect." The trip was long but as we drove, I wondered how these guys made it through boot camp? Unless, their the reserves than its very understandable. Still... this so called "squad" seem like novices formed together to die. "Hey! Newbie wake up, we're here!" Sarge yelled as he pulled me out of the car. "This is your stop! Stay here and cover us until we order you to move!" The jeep started its engine and headed down the village. I fixed my helmet a little from the drop. He didn't have to be that hard though. I proned on the sand and ignored the heat. Soon, I scoped and checked what the others are doing now. The Jeep opened and Baron came out first, scouting the areas by just running out the field. I observed the area just incase any other snipers were there. Baron stopped and made a signal... from Star Trek. Wow... just wow. Pvt. Will came out second sprinting to the corner of the walls beckoning the others to follow. Baron then ran to Will. "Hey, Newbie." Sarge called out from the radio. "Everything checks out in this area, return here." "Yes, sir... I mean Sarge." I suttered. I ran to them as fast I can and did caught up. There was a feeling that the village is really crawling with some enemies. Hoyle and Sarge were arguing about something and all I caught from it was "Their gonna surround us I just know it!" Major headed to me and ordered me to follow Baron to the next part of the village. Baron and I took casual manuevers together very will of the areas. Still, I got a really bad feeling about it. "Kuri! Are you sure this is the right village?!" Sarge asked violently. "Yeah! I checked the damn map!" She yelled back. "Its empty as hell an I bet I was right about taking the left turn!" Sarge suggested. The arguement went on and on. Until we made a checkpoint around the middle of the village. 1600 Hours "This is ridiculous." Kuri mumbled. "Let's go back... this is a waist of time." Keith complained. "Quiet, emo boy before I cut your tongue off." Kuri threatened. "Stop depressing the kid." Sarge scolded. A gunshot took the conversation into panic. And it wasn't one of our guns. I stared up the roofs and there were three masked men shooting at us. I centered my head and found more heading this way. "Ambush!" Sarge warned. "Told ya!" Will taunted. "Shut up ya Brit!" Sarge defied. We all scattered from each wall and rubbled buildings. I peeked a little and fired a bullet into one of the one's on the roof. "Fire at will, Fire at will!" Major yelled. Baron started shooting.. but not at the enemy... at Pvt. Will... "Not me you moron!" Will panicked. "At the terrorists! The people with masks, stupid!" "Ooooh... Sorry buddy." Baron apologized. I returned to focusing on the enemy ahead of us and fired a more rounds. It seemed there was endless counts of them! Keith threw a frag gernade and cleared the rest on the roof. "Everyone into that house thing!" Kuri ordered.
