The ambush had been laid out to capture or kill Alexander Drake. After the fiasco at the university, something had to be done about the vampire clan causing the most trouble in the area. Alexander had become more brazen in the past few days, and Operation Humanity would capitalize on it.
The plan seemed simple enough. Take out the vehicle with an anti-armor remote detonated mine. If Alexander died from the detonation, then it would just be a shorter mission.
Heather Fox was leading the mission with seven other hunters. She was tough as nails and highly skilled. She was honored to be on this mission. To finally get a chance to take the smug bastard off the playing field. The group had all positioned within the treeline, west of the road. Once Alexander's vehicle was hit, they would fire Chemical V gas grenades and then light the son of a bitch up. A large tattoo-covered man with a mohawk walked over holding a drone controller with a large screen in one hand and a can of beer in the other. He wore a woodland camo tank top and brown cargo pants. A smile showed through his thick black beard and he reeked of alcohol upon approaching."Ay Heather, I got eyes on him! Abercrombie Drake is about to have his whole world ROCKED! WOOO!"
He hollered as he chugged what was left in the can. Heather shook her head with disapproval. "Bruno what the fuck! We have comms for a fucking reason and drinking?! Now of all times?"
Heather scolded before pointing in the direction he should be. "Get over there. Now!"
She ordered while Bruno tossed the can and walked off."No need to get your panties in a damn bunch. I'm just pregaming for the celebration I'm gonna have tonight. Got two ladies and a promotion waiting on me after this! OH YEAH!"
Bruno walked away before stopping in his tracks as he watched Alexander Drake's vehicle come to a stop on the side of the road. "He stopped the car on the road! Now he's picking something up and Ohh shit… He pointed in our direction before he took out the drone!!!""Fuck! How the hell… Shift your sectors of fire! He's coming from the north."
Heather ordered before attempting to contact HQ. 'HQ, this is Slayer 1. Over."
"Hear you loud and clear Slayer 1. Send it. Over.""Our target anticipated our ambush. We need…"
A stone the size of softball smashed into the lower part of the woman's face, destroying her entire mouth and jaw. The next second her head was nearly torn off as a swift hand thrust into her forehead with enough force to tear the nerves and ligaments in her neck and snap her neck backward. Her attacker had aimed to remove the head, but he couldn't be perfect all of the time.
Heather's comrades saw her corpse moments too late."Don't let Agent Fox die in vain. Let's light the son of a bitch up!"
Bruno shouted to motivate the others. Unfortunately, two more agents had been dispatched by the time Bruno finished his line. The forest was too thick. "Fuck exposure! We gotta move to the road. Move!"
As other agents bounded to the road, one had bumped right into Alexander before breaking the treeline. He fell back and hit the ground"How rude. Don't shoot me. No, we can't have that now, can we? Shoot yourself instead.
Alexander stares the hunter down as they had tried to fight his compulsion. Alexander kneeled down beside the hunter and handed him his own sidearm. "I don't mind helping you doing something that benefits us both. Now do it!
Alexander watched as the hunter slowly placed the pistol to his right temple. Tears ran down his face as his whole body trembled. Alexander simply shrugged with a cold expression on his face.
Bruno and three of the other hunters positioned themselves on the road. He was sure another agent had been taken by Alexander. POW!
A single shot echoed, causing Bruno to nod toward the treeline. With a grunt, he sprinted forward off the road and towards where he knew he would make contact with Alexander. "ALEXANDER!"
The mine was triggered and detonated on the road with the other three agents, killing them immediately. Bruno sprinted through the tree line and immediately found Alexander standing with his hands crossed and a look of displeasure."What? Or was that you selling your performance before you turned them into bits?"
Bruno straightened up and rolled his eyes."Listen up Drake! You're lucky to even have an actor as good as me! And if I didn't give you the info on this whole ambush you-""No. You wouldn't get your whores or your promotion"
Alexander sighed. "I'll have your payment wired to your account shortly and the ladies will contact you… Now, are you ready?""Hell yeah! Hit me with your best!"
Bruno braced himself before Alexander shoulder-checked him hard enough to send him flying and hitting a few trees along the way. Bruno then grabbed his own sidearm and shot at his shoulder. Finally, he grabbed his radio. "HQ! HQ this is Slayer 2. Drake got to us! He killed damn near the whole fucking squad! We need backup, medics, anything. He's still fucking out there! Over!"
Bruno winced in pain before managing a grin.
