The helicopter flew across the vast rainforest, the trees resembling small bushes from the height we were at. I looked out open door feeling the wind blow through my hair, a sensation I had grown accustomed to due to my lifestyle. I unbuckled my belt walking to the open door. Below me was the Genji river, it was a large river that flowed through the jungle of Hugandi Rainforest. There was my mark. It was simple, jump from the helicopter, land in the river, swim to shore and find their hide out. No matter how many times I had done these helicopter jumps I still felt butterflies in my stomach. Even spies get anxious every now and then.
“Were passing the waterfall.” Pete my pilot spoke over the headphones. I raised my hand gesturing a thumbs up at him before looking back at the river, just as he had said the waterfall was approaching us. I sat back down, strapped my parachute on and took my headphones off, replacing them with my ear piece. With my pistols hoisted in my waist, my knifes tucked away into my boots and my small rucksack containing my phone, small computer, bullets and backup pistol strapped onto my back I was ready.
I walked up to the ledge of the helicopter as Pete shouted that we were over the waterfall. I switched on my ear piece, before closing my eyes. “You’re ready to jump Julia.” A voice spoke in my ear piece. It was the voice of my analyst Zoe. She was the voice that guided me through my missions, and most of the time it was thanks to her that I made it out alive.
“Thanks Zee.” I shouted, through the loud propellers.
I looked down again seeing where I had to land. It was a simple jump, pull parachute and aim for the waterfall pool. I’ve done it millions of times. After taking a deep breath and saying a silent prayer I bent my knees and leapt forwards. The feel of the air around me as I lied flat in a star motion. My hair despite being in a pony tail flew in every direction. I brought my gaze down the waterfall getting bigger and bigger. I pulled the cord of my parachute and in seconds I was jolted up, my chest tightening from the sudden pull. My fall became slower as I slowly entered the rainforest. The trees that were once small hedges grew, my parachute became caught in one of the branches of the trees, I unclipped myself from it and fell into the pool beneath me.
I resurfaced, brushing my hair from my face. I quickly swam to the bank checking now one was watching me. I hide in a couple of bushes and laid on my back as I caught my breath. “Zee I’m on land.” I spoke breathlessly.
“You make everything sound easy.” She joked.
“It’s harder than it looks, trust me.” I answered sitting up and pulling my backpack off my shoulder and rummaging for my mini computer.
“The cabin is 0.5 miles north from where you are, the radio images are picking up some surveillance cameras and a couple of guards around the perimeter. So be on the look out. I’m transferring images to your computer now.” Within seconds inferred images of the cabin popped up on my screen. Three bodies were detected, they looked armed and ready.
“Three isn’t so bad.” I smirked.
“Three armed guards outside, we don’t know what’s inside.” Zoe reminded me.
“Well come to that when the moments right.” I replied packing my computer away. I placed my rucksack over my shoulder and began walking north. I had to be attentive to my surroundings, the slightest sound of a twig breaking caught my attention. But most of the time it was a small creature lurking around. I kept my hand on my pistol as I walked, ready for any one. My body suit was luckily drying off due to the heat, but my hair stayed stuck to side of my face. “Hey Zoe.”
“Julia.” She answered.
“You never finished telling me about your date last night.” I said, smiling but kept my attention on the rainforest around me. The only sound of birds and tree branches was heard above me.
🎋 Zoe let out a small laugh, even though I couldn’t see her I knew she was laughing. “I don’t think now is the best time to tell you about my evening.”
“Oh come in, I’m walking through a rainforest about to go rescue some politician and you won’t entertain me.” My mission was to go to the cabin, secure a hostage, an American politician with secrets of the use military was kidnapped a few days ago and I was sent to go save him before he spilled anything. His capture were hoping of a ransom but were up for a surprise. “Come in tell me it ended with a Big Bang.” I silently laughed.
“Big Bang indeed…” she answered trying to hold back a laugh. “But I will not tell you about it when you’re less than 40 steps to the cabin.” I rolled my eyes before ducking down to the ground, grabbing my pistol from my hip. I crawled up to a rock that gave a clear sight of the cabin.
It was a small cabin, a stairway at the front, a door in the centre with two windows on either side. The exterior looked old and warm out, probably due to the never ending rain. As Zoe had said there were a couple cameras posted, one on a nearby tree, another on a lamppost outside the cabin and another just above the door. “Can you take them out?” I asked.
“Like you have to ask.” She confidently answered. I rolled my eyes waiting for her confirmation, it came seconds later. I check my rounds in my pistol before placing my silencer on. My first target was the guy walking closer to me, he was a couple of yards away his hands placed by his belt where his gun laid. He wore a black t-shirt, black trousers and the oh so famous evil henchmen shades. Can this be any more ironic? I asked shaking my head. The guy was circling the areas furthest from the cabin therefore taking him out would be better as his co-workers wouldn’t see him.
I aimed my gun, squinting my left eye and sticking the tip of my tongue out. As he was moving I had to calculate where his next movements would be. I caught on to his pattern and pulled the tricker. A small but not unnoticeable sound let out as the bullet went to the centre of his forehead. He fell to the ground, landing on what thankfully was a pile of leaves. Silently proud of my aim I moved closer to the cabin. Unlike before two men were patrolling the entrance, one just underneath the stairway and one by the door. Great.
Again I aimed my gun, left eye closed and tongue sticking out. With one shot the guy at the stairwell fell to the ground getting the attention of the guy stood by the door. Similar to the first guy I shot they were all wearing black clothing with black shade. The guy by the door banged on the door notifying the people outside of his arrival. Exactly what I was avoiding! I whispered. Seconds after the bang another henchman walked out the door to join the guy already out there. I rolled my eyes.
“Zoe how many are inside?” I asked aiming my gun at the two guys outside. They had their guns out at the ready but were unsure were to point them. I was at an advantage.
“Four bodies inside. Two sat on chairs and two standing. I think Mr Louis is the one sat by the window.” I thanked her before pulling the trigger twice. One by one the two henchmen fell to the ground. One fell backwards into the door, possibly alarming those inside. “Okay you have one stood by the door and another stood by the window.” Zoe warned me. With another thank you, I took my silencer off and threw it on the ground before jumping to my feet. I placed my rucksack on the ground too but clipped some billet rounds onto my belt. “Good luck.”
“See you soon.” I said to my ear piece. I took a long breath and brushed my drying hair out my face. Now or never. I thought it myself.
I ran to the cabin being attentive of any hidden henchmen. As I climbed up the stairs a shot was fired in my direction from inside the cabin. The bullet missing me millimetres. I swore out loud as I ducked. I brought the gun up in the air and aimed it at the door and fired a couple bullies. This only fuelled them. I crouched down and crawled to the door, pushing the body from the guy before out of the way. Lord let me get out of this alive.
🎋. When I didn’t fire back at them they stopped, I took this as my chance to jump up and kick the door open. Inside, just as Zoe had mentioned were four men. Two of which were wearing black, one military outfit and another in a light blue suit. They all looked at me with shock for a few seconds before the two men wearing black opened fire in my direction. I ducked down and rolled to over to the other side of the door. They kept firing until they ran out of rounds. To which I pulled back my gun, stood up and stood at the door frame, I pulled the trigger at one of the men. He was larger than the other man stood by the door. He fell to the ground as the other henchman ran over to me kicking my gun out of my hand, and threw a punch at me, making me double over.
I quickly gathered my balance and dodged left from his punch. I caught his extended arm and ducked under him pulling his arm behind him. He yelled out in pain, he kicked his left leg back hitting me in the knee making me let go of his arm. He stood this moment to quickly punch me on the cheek with his good arm. I fell to my back, he stalked over, kneeled down and with his big hand gripped my throat depriving me of air. I placed my hand onto of his digging my nails on it but he didn’t budge. I wrapped my legs around his arm, pushing his shoulders back while pulled his hand closer to me. He groaned at my movement and with my boot I kicked his face. Struck by the hit he doubled back.
I reached for my second pistol in my belt and aimed at him, but before I could pull the trigger another gun shot went off. Instinctively I looked down at my torso, checking if I was hit but it wasn’t me that was hit but the man I had just caught. His chest became wet and he slowly fell to the ground. Confused and shocked I turned to the door.
I was angry, what was he doing here? This was my mission. For that split second I had my back turned to the guy that was sat with Mr Louis. I didn’t see him raise from his chair and charge towards me. He wrapped his hand around my hair pulling my head back and then I felt the cold blade on my throat. “Drop the gun or I will cut her.” He said
Before he could carry out on his threat. I raised my knee and kicked my foot back hitting him where the sun didn’t shin, I flung my elbow back jabbing him on the side of the rib. He removed his hold from my hair and his knife from my throat, unfortunately he cut my neck slightly, but it was nothing I couldn’t handle. I turned around and punched him square in the nose. His eyes became droopy and zoned out as he fell backwards. Once he was knocked out I brought my attention to the man stood by the door, he placed his gun in the back of his trousers and walked up to me and the guy I had just knocked out.
“What are you doing here?” I snapped. One thing I hated was having someone in on my mission. “This is my mission.” I spoke with gritted teeth.
“Actually this was my mission, by the looks of it you needed my help.” He walked over to Mr Louis and untied him.
“I didn’t need your help, I had it under control!” I corrected him. Instead of replying he shrugged his shoulders and introduced himself to Mr Louis.
“Hello sir, I’m Alexander, we’re here to return you back home.” He said flashing him a reassuring smile. Mr Louis glanced from me to Alex before nodding his head. I let out a loud groan walking to my gun that lied in the floor.
“Zoe send the helicopter back down the cabin will you.” I spoke to my ear piece. I turned to look at Alex leading Mr Louis out the cabin, he sent a quick smirk my way before turning his head. That jerk! He comes in when all the hard work is done and takes all the credit.
Alexander Theo Roberts was a spy just like me, the only difference was that he was from a different agency. Agencies that were run by very different people but wanted the same outcome, to rid the world from dangerous people. His work was based in Kentucky while I was based in Pennsylvania. Alex was the cockiest, arrogant, self consumed agent I had ever encountered. And we had encounter each other a number of times, sadly in situations just like this. We went out for the same bad guys. I was very good at what I did and unfortunately so was he. I was the best spy in my agency and he in his.
I have been brought up in the spy world, since I was a little girl I remember training to be who I was now. My parents weren’t in the picture and with nothing like feelings to hold me back I was able to become the best at what I do. I liked working alone, I liked being in charge. What I didn’t like was people coming in on my mission and messing it up for me. A.k.a Alexander Roberts.
I walked out the cabin, seeing my helicopter landing near us, next to a black SUV; Alex’s ride. He was stood talking to Mr Louis, he passed him a phone before looking my way and smirking. My blood was boiling, I clipped my gun to my belt and clenched my fist. I marched over to him, my ears must have been steaming by now.
“What the hell did you think you were doing? I had it under control in there! Who told you to come down didn’t you know this mission was being handled by the L.A.I.” I shouted. I crossed my hands to my chest and my breathing deep and heavy.
“Get your head out your ass Watts! You’re lucky I was here without me you would probably be dead by now. You should be thanking me.”
I scoffed. “Before you came I was fine, as soon as you show up I have a knife to my neck.”
He ran his hand through his brown hair, Alex had blue eyes and tanned skin that complimented said eyes. He was tall and was well built. He could have all the girls swooning after him if he asked for it. It was just unfortunate that he was the one face I hated most. We had never seen eye to eye. We trained together when we were younger but when we turned 18 we got split up. I went Pennsylvania while he went Kentucky. Everything was always a competition between us, both being best in our class we aimed to beat the other. There could only one top agent.
Alex let out a laugh, showing his white pearls. “Nah that was all you. You turned your back to the guy.”
“Yes because you had to make your big entrance.” He carried on laughing. I rolled my eyes and placed my hands to my chest. “Go suck a dïck Alex.” I growled turning my heel and heading to Mr Louis.
He had just finished his conversation on the phone. I introduced myself and shook his hand. He spoke of how grateful we were able to get to him. I welcomed him with a big smile and offered to give him a ride back to the authorities in our helicopter. From there they would provide him with a ride back to the states and back to his family. I could see from the corner of my eyes Alex stood there glaring at me as Mr Louis accepted my offer. It was only because my way of transport was quicker than his. We were in the middle of the rainforest. Miles away from any form of civilisation. I gave Alex my winning smile as we boarded my helicopter.
Alex stood by his car arms crossed to his chest as we buckled our seat belts. As we set off into the sky he raised his hand to his head and saluted. The bastard.
