Sunrise; that was a good time
for killing people.
I am sniper, and that I day I was sent with my partner Kent to kill someone. Not just a regular
we were going to kill the general of the Soviet Union army. If we have success
the cold war was going to end.
In that moment we were lying in the grass, slowly moving toward the abandoned city of Tjalinograd. We knew that general Kazrief was in the city, preparing his troops for a raid against the United States
.that was our only chance to kill him.
Watch out Kane
soldiers up ahead
I looked trough my binocular and I saw two soldiers walking toward our position.
take down the one on the right
I carefully aim for the left ones head, and I took him down with one quick headshot; Kent killed the other one just a second later.
We stood up, and started walking slowly toward the first buildings of the city.
Sniper on the building on the right
.take it down
nice and quiet
I aimed for his head, and shoot.
I saw the man looking right at me; I was going to panic. However, the man could not take his rifle
Kent killed him with a headshot. Then he turned at me, and he said:
Good work idiot
what are you going to do when we get to the general position?
I grabbed his arm, and I almost shouted at him:
The wind just changed
it was not my fault okay? Now lets move before someone hear us
I left his arm, and started moving again. He followed me
still angry with me.
We climbed our way up to one of the buildings. As soon as we reached the top, we could see the whole city
the ruin of that once beautiful city.
Kent walked toward the edge of the building, and he looked down. Then he turned toward me, and he said:
So many people used to live in there before the Second World War
now its just a ghost town, home of rats
and Russian soldiers
I could not help but agree; it was a sad view indeed.
Forget about that
we have a mission to accomplish
Kent turned toward me
lets prepare our stuff
We prepared the long rage sniper riffle. The target was going to be a mile away from our position, so that was going to be a very difficult shot
we it was our only chance.
We waited on the roof for three hours, occasionally talking, but for the most of the time, we were just silent. Then we saw someone coming with a car in a square a mile away. I positioned myself behind the sniper riffle, and I looked through the lens.
General Kazrief left his car, and he walked toward another man, which was waiting for him in the middle of the square.
God bless you
God will not help us in this world
we must help ourselves on our own
The general walked closer to his comrade, noticing that many soldiers were coming.
I see you brought your squad with you
I never go anywhere without them
you know me Kazrief
Im a wise and prudent man
More prudent than wise
we dont have time for that
we have something to discuss
There are a lot of soldiers down there Kent
escaping will be difficult
At least we must try to kill him, and if we succeed
our life will not be important
I was not so patriotic
but I definitely wanted to help my county, and if sacrifice was necessary
I had no choice but to accept it.
I kept my eye on the flag on Kazriefs car; when the wind will blow toward our position
my shot will be lethal and precise.
as soon as the wind changes
a helicopter came in sight, and landed in the middle of the square.
maybe it will took a flight again
And what if it doesnt?
Kent did not respond
we both knew that was our only chance. Just when we thought that the mission was failed, the helicopter took flight, and landed on the top of another building. I aimed for the generals head
the wind changed.
Now or never
I pressed the trigger, and hoped for the best. That was our lucky day
I pulled out an amazing headshot
the expression on the soldiers faces war priceless. However, the euphoria did not last very long
the helicopter started flying toward our position.
take him down
I aimed form the pilots head, and pressed the trigger again
the glass was bulletproof.
I left the weapon, and ran toward the stairs. I heard the helicopter firing missiles at us, and I no seconds
I was sent flying in the air
.right off the roof. And we all know
what happen to someone who is falling from the twentieth floor
I woke up
my vision was blurry
and I could not feel anything
nothing. I could not believe that I was still alive, but I was not going to survive that day anyway
so I prayed the death to hurry up and take me away.
But death did not come
an indistinct figure entered my line of sight. I tried to speak
but I could not move my lips
I could not do anything.
I heard a voice:
everything will be over in no time
The voice was clear
even if I knew that my ears were destroyed by the missiles. I tried to speak mentally:
Who are you?
Im the one that is going to give you a new life
A new life? What do you mean?
I keeping you from dying right now
just let me take your soul
and I will reborn you
and give you a new beginning
I just realized that the voice was feminine
Reborn me? That doesnt make sense
you will see
And then I felt something pulling me away from my body. I tried to resist it
but I could not, and I surrendered to the unknown force.
my new son
When I woke up, I was in some kind of strange
chamber. I was not comfortable in that place
I wanted to go out. I tried to break the walls, and strangely, I managed to break them with minimum effort. I felt on the ground; I noticed that I was in some kind of
Youre reborn now
.you memories are still there
I looked toward the source of the voice
and I saw
a dragon. I tried to say something, but what it came out of my mouth was a strange noise
an inhuman noise. I had a bad feeling, and I looked at my body
I turned into a dragon
a baby dragon.
I spoke mentally:
Why did you do this to me?
I just wanted to give you a better life
as my children
And who said that I want to?
You were going to die
and fall in a great
nothing. Im giving you a new and better life
with a new brother too
Look behind you
I turned around
.and I saw
Yes I did
you friends was dying too
I had no choice. I guess that he will not remember anything when he will hatch
I tried to turn around, but the dragoness grabbed me with his huge claws
thats for the best
I felt like falling asleep again
and that time
I did not wake up as Kane anymore.
The general of the Soviet Union has been killed that day, by two unknown snipers. No one knew what happened to them
some says that they died
some says that they went back to their homeland. But some people say
a lonely dragon
and give them a prize for what have they done to this country. No one will never know the truth
but sometime at night
people can hear strange sounds
.and even see two small figures and a bigger one
flying in the night sky.
