Sol smiled and and followed closely behind Chuy, "I'm glad to see you know the layout and that you bring neat toys with you." Sol leaned close to the wall, "And that you always go first."

Sol reached into his pocket and pulled out one of the flash-bangs, "Chuy, slow down." He grabbed his shoulder lightly, "There's probably another team comin' around that hallway."

Lu heard Maverick and pulled out of there as quick as she could. Hiding just out of the range, she put them into auto for a bit and walked off to check on the others.

Seeing Ameri and Daniel, she tried to give them a reassuring smile, though it probably didn't work. "Well, they are out there doing their thing, how are things in here?"

As they moved through the complex, a stray thought kept nagging at Kynthia. There was something she had forgotten to compensate for.

Rounding a corner and taking out a couple of guards, she suddenly remembered. She gasped aloud, then frowned at Maverick. The stupid m an. So intent on looking after his crew, his girls, that he wasn't taking care of himself.

"Frack Frack Frackity Frack" she swore. "Sol." she moved closer to Maverick's friend. "That damn foolish old man tell you he took one through the chest a few days ago?"

TAG Maverick, Solomon.

Kynthia shook her head. "Let Chuy know. Quiet like. Hard as it is, we can't let it distract us too much."

Sol leaned to Chuy and whispered to him, "Chuy, we got a minor issue of the injured person variety. Seems we managed to be caught unaware to the fact that we got a guy who took a bullet in the chest a while back."

Sol raised his eyebrows to indicate that his displeasure with the whole ordeal and then looked back to Kynthia.

Lu wandered into the infirmary and gave what was supposed to be a reassuring smile. "Well, they are out there doing their thing, how are things in here?"

Ameri gave a small smile in return and invited her to take a seat on the cot with a gesture. "Things are fine. As long as he rests, our guest should make a full recovery."

She gave him a small, shy smile, her gaze gliding past elusively.

Chuy looked back along the party and just caught a moment of Maverick's face when he thought no-one was looking. The look that crossed his face said it all, and then Chuy smiled.

"Just like him, dong ma. Hang on, what was that?"

He dived to the floor along the wall at the corner, so just his eyes peered around the corner at floor level. A glance told him their danger. A full platoon of men all set for a squad of irregulars to come blundering around the corner. He held up a closed fist behind him, inching back. He then reached for one of the distributed flash grenades. He activated the weapon, and then his arm described a graceful three quarter circle ending along the bottom corner of the wall where he lay, flinging the bomb down the adjoining hall. Instantly he scrunched into a ball.

A half moment later, a loud WHACK and a flash a brilliant light shone from the perpendicular passage, followed by the shouts of men and the repeated cracks of their assault rifles fired blindly. The shots ricocheted off the wall whining and scattering chips of plascrete and spalls of broken projectiles.

He shouted over the din, "Maybe they didn't like my calling card!"

Kynthia reacted to Chuy's raised fist by crouching down and tucking her head. From what she had seen of the artillery that he carried, she wanted to be ready.
She was not to be disappointed. The flare would have blinded anyone foolish enough to still be looking. The instant that it faded, she rolled towards the opening, ending up just past the opening. Chuy shouted over the din, "Maybe they didn't like my calling card!" She laughed. Seemed that Chuy Lo was enjoying himself.
She began firing, picking off the soldiers with unnerving accuracy. She wasn't quick enough to get them all though. One had begun to run from the back of the pack.
"Runner!" she yelled, hoping that someone would catch on. There wasn't time to swing the rifle around.

"Runner!" Kynthia yelled at the same time Sol saw the man running.

Sol took aim with his revolver and fired off two shots. The first missed entirely but the second caught the man in the back of the leg behind the kneecap.

"Got 'im in the leg." Sol said to Kynthia but as he looked up he saw the man crawling away.

Blam

"And the back."

Maverick looked at a clearing. "Hallway is cleared out for now! Let's head into the hallway to the right!" As he saw Chuy playing with his toys, he again looked over at the rest of the team. "Sol, throw some presents for anyone following..."

He then tapped Kynthia's shoulder. "Let's hope father isn't paying attention... Let's make sure that we're not followed, just in case they make it past the surprise."

"Let's move out!"

"Standby Sol. We have company. Standby..... GO!"

Sol gleefully followed her orders and threw one of the grenades the new person had given them the explosion was fierce enough to make Sol's ears ring a little bit.

"Think I can say that we ain't got followers Cap'n. Per your orders an' all." Though low her voice was warm with humour. "Don't think they will be sending many more that way. Walls fell in a little."

Sol laughed at her comment, "Were it not for the fact that we're mountin' a quick and quiet rescue operation I'd reckon we could stay here for a spell have fun with the baddies."

Lu smiled a bit at Ameri and sat down. "Yeah, rest sounds good. I've don't have long, I gotta keep an eye on things up there. but I figured I'd check on you two. We are the only ones left on the ship right now, and we had to pull away because the three of us couldn't put up much of a fight."

She glanced around the room, hating rooms like this.

Maverick moved the group along, as Sol threw his grenades. He saw various signs leading to the blocks of the prison. As he saw the burst open doors of the blocks, he huffed under his breath. "That gorramned woman, always making a mess."

Afterwards, he saw a trail of beaten prison guards. "Yeah, I think the jailbreak is beginning. Everyone, get ready! We've got prisoners on the loose. And they're less dangerous than the guards!"

-------

Hauser was sitting in the command room, looking at the grid on the huge screen. "Block A and D are compromised. The Crimson Unit has not reported in. And I've got a huge hole in the western entrance."

And then he snapped at his crew. "AND CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW IN THE BOWELS OF HELL THIS COULD HAPPEN IN MY GORRAMN PRISON?!!" As a young officer brought him his coffee, he just snatched it out of his hand.

"What... what's this?!!" He saw a ship on the screen. "That... What is that?!! Who would be so bold as to try to..." Then, he saw the emblem. "MONARCH!!!"

As he sprung to the command computer system. "Which means, Daddy's not home. He's headed to right for me..." With a maniacal laugh, he thought he just signed a death warrant for someone. "Send two ships after her. Scuttle that gorramn ship!"

-------

Maverick heard a loud sound coming from the middle of the prison. "Oh hell... Let's get to Sam. I hear attack ships headed out!"

Lu got back to the cockpit just in time to see the proximity sensors going off. She jumped into her seat in time to see ships coming at them. Swearing in Chinese under her breath, she got over the PA. "Hang on Ameri, we gotta do a quick takeoff here and see if we can avoid these gorram ships coming at us, we've been spotted."

Not even sure if the ship could handle what she was about to do, she took a deep breath and took off from where they were, flying in the opposite direction of the ships, but they weren't gonna back down, and this she knew.

He almost ran headlong into a man in badly worn brown fatigues holding a stunrod.

Chuy looked around him, listened an instant and bolted.

He almost ran headlong into a man in badly worn brown fatigues holding a stunrod.

The man in front of the group shifted into a fight ready stance. "Declare yourselves." He snapped.

Kynthia moved carefully round where he could see her. "Lookin' for a friend of ours. New lady in town. Probably stirrin' up all kinds of ruckus. Any ideas soldier?" she called, making sure that her body language was that of command. The right kind of command. It didn't hurt that she had dressed very carefully in her own browns for this.

His eyes widened when he saw her. "Sir, that way sir. She's hurt some, but feisty as they come. I'll keep watch here."

Kynthia thought for a moment, thinking back over the route they had taken in. "That way is blocked on account of a little blowing up incident. Round up your men and get yourselves to whatever ships are available. Let everyone out on the way. Keep 'em busy and most of you will make it. Good Luck Soldier."

She looked at Chuy, Sol and Maverick watching this. "What!" she demanded. "We don't ever leave anyone behind dong ma? An' I ani't changing that for nobody."

She waved ahead in an exaggerated motion. "After you gents, if'n you please. Sam is that way."

They moved along the corridor that the browncoat had indicated. Part way a door opened and someone glanced out, ducking back in when he saw them.

Chris ducked back in and looked at the group gathered. "Someone's comin', and they look like a Browncoat. She got through our guard without trouble, said somethin' bout a new comer. Sam, I think your rescue is here. All our rescues are here."

Before saying another word, he stepped back out. "What's your business here? Are you our rescue party?" He glanced back in the room, but did not go in. "If you're lookin' for Sam...she's in here." He nodded his head to the side, pointing to the room.

Kynthia looked to Maverick for the nod before heading towards the man who had stepped out. His face was drawn, long unkempt hair straggled past his shoulders. His body showed signs of long abuse. If this was what time here did, then they were just in time for Sam.

"You doin' ok soldier?" she asked. "We're here for Sam alright and trying to get the rest to move out and cause some fussin' so we can get her home. Guess you could say that we are the rescue party."

She stood close to him, looking right into his eyes. "Let me past now. I'm anxious to see Sam and see how bad she's hurt. Go over to the Captain now, his name is Maverick an' he'll be wantin' some introductions along the way. Don't think he's gonna give you much time right now, he'll be needin' to see her just as much as I. You did good."

She stepped past him and into the cell. A low cry of anger escaped her when she saw Sam. Her friend had obviously been tortured viciously.

"Mei mei. We're here. Come to take you home. Can you stand?" Kynthia's voice was low, restful.

TAG - Sam.

"Maverick! You're needed here." she called.

Sam smiled slightly as she looked at Kynthia. "My hero...I can stand. Did you bring me a gun? We need, I need a piece. There are people on the Mile, good people...Can't leave them." She got up, still standing weakly.

"Maverick! You're needed here."

Sam stopped, looking at Kynthia. "Mav's here? Nonono, that was Hauser's plan, kill Mav..."

Maverick came around the corner and saw Sam's appearance. "Let him try, Samantha." He gave Sam his sawed off shotgun. "I'm not going to die that easily."

"No, I'm hoping you wouldn't, big brother..." Hauser came into the hallway with a trophy in his hand, Selene. He was dragging her by the hair. "Of course, I wasn't going to make this easy on you..." He then aimed his gun right at her head.

Maverick pulled out his Peacemaker, "You crazy meh, tah mah duh hwoon dahn. You would kill a little girl..."

He laughed at Maverick. "Little girl. Oh, if you only knew, Saul... This little girl is a real killer. If she's on her medication, that is."

Maverick looked at her again. "Kynthia, that can't be her... Can it?"

Hauser looked at him. "So, what are you going to do... Saul Armstrong." At that moment, the little girl woke up from her daze and stomped his foot. Afterwards, she swung up and swung her little leg back. Hauser was holding himself in a certain area now.

Maverick pulled the little girl out of the way, and put the gun to Hauser's head. That did no good, as the gun wasn't there long. As Maverick took an open palm to the sternum, Selene was immediately in the line of Hauser's sights.

"Time to die, little whore..." Hauser fired off two shots, as he did, a large figure was in front of him. The dying blow of a Browncoat was a large right hand to Hauser's stern jaw.

Now, Staff Sgt. John Goro lay on the ground in front of Maverick. "Colonel... Sorry I couldn't get here fast enough..." He started coughing violently. On his chest were two wounds created by a .38 pistol. "All I wanted was to... go home..."

Maverick knelt down to let him up to look at the ceiling. "You will, son... I promise."

He looked up at Hauser, "Now... YOU DIE."

Maverick launched himself into a shoulder tackle aimed for Hauser. As he connected, a huge scuffle began.

TAG - ALL (Getting ready for the end. :) )

-------

The two ships had tried in vain to catch the Monarch. "We need to scuttle her fast, Lieutenant."

The other ship sounded off to him. "The pilot has eluded us, so far. We need to find where he went. Not like the '03 is armed, right?"

"Right. Let's get the ship and get back down there... The Warden wants us down there to torture Armstrong..."

Things were happening faster than Chris could keep up with them. Suddenly, 2 shots had been fired at Goro in an attempt to kill Selene. When Maverick went after Hauser, Chris went and pulled Goro away from the fight, and towards the group. "Someone take care of him. This can't keep going on..."

He had this look in his eyes as if you hurt one of my friends, you won't live to see another day. Reaching after one of the guns that had been dropped, he stood back up and kept it pointed at Hauser. He then saw Selene off to the side with tears in her eyes. It was obvious what was hurting her after what he had seen between Goro and her.

Keeping the gun pointed, he went over to her. "You better go see him Selene. Come on, I'll help you over there. Don't be afraid ok?" He took hold of her with one arm gently and led her over to Goro's side, then with a weak smile, turned back to the scuffle, eyeing Hauser with a gun pointed at his head.

--------------------------------

Lu had been doing her best to avoid the two ships coming after her. Having already wire tapped their communications, she wished they could see her face right now. "I'm a girl you gorram idiots, bet you didn't think a girl could do this..." She pulled a daring move and spun away just to fly underneath the two ships coming at her. She hoped she could avoid them until she was called back. Not being armed harmed her greatly, she couldn't go on the offensive and attack.

Listening in on their communications again, she could not figure out who the 'Armstrong' they were talking about was. But she figured it was someone on their side if they were going to torture him.

Mirrors of the memory.

Maverick looked at the girl again. "Kynthia, that can't be her... Can it?"

Kynthia didn’t hear him. since as soon as the brothers were close together, a blinding pain had rocketed through her skull. Clutching her head, she dropped back into the cell slowly.

It was suddenly imperative that she was not seen by either of the brothers. A feeling that she could not explain for it was so deeply rooted in her psyche that she was unable to fight it. She found a spot just inside the door and closed her eyes, leaning back against the wall.

**Flashback**

Mud seeped through the cracks in her boots. It was thick and cloying with the blood of the soldiers who had been killed in this valley. The fighting had been brutal here in the trenches, and it had reached a point where there was no time or inclination to dispose of the fallen. The stench of rotting corpses and the sound of the birds and insects that feasted upon them filled the air.

Kynthia crawled through the barbed wire and bodies until she had a clear shot. She set up her rifle on the low tripod, adjusting the legs so that it was even. Her sight clicked into place with a barely audible shnick. Her face calm, she sighted on the head of the first one, red dot neatly lined up mid forehead. The last year had been filled with the insane training necessary to get inside their lines, to get Execution to this place where she could assassinate the most hated brothers in the War. The Armstrongs; Scourge of Shadow and the Twin Gunner, as they were known, were about to die.

Execution frowned. Something was wrong, they were arguing vigorously. The hatred on their faces clear, even from this distance. She waited. Maybe they would do her job for her, ‘twould be nice for once. She could only hope. Still, she kept her focus and her aim. Whichever one was still standing at the end, well, he weren’t gonna be standin’ for long.

The argument grew more heated. They began to fight, struggling for supremacy in a place where it mattered so little. Execution shook her head in disgust. One of them, the one who would become known as Hauser, suddenly pushed his brother away. He stepped back, pulled his gun and fired.

The shot went wide.

The other Armstrong, looking thoroughly disgusted, took careful aim and calmly fired. The round entered his twins head, just above the temple. Twisting as he fell, Hauser’s reflexes kicked in, causing his fingers to contract. He fired again as he fell, one single shot.

Ironically, that was the one that ended the war for Kynthia.

**End of flashback**

Still caught in the images that she had seen, Kynthia forced herself up and into the doorway of the room. She steadied herself against the wall and got ready for a killshot. Problem was, she was so wrapped up in her past, that she couldn’t tell them apart any more. First one, then the other were clearly placed in her sight. Each time there was a clear shot, she nearly, so nearly squeezed the trigger. It took one of them to spin into clear view when she realised with deep horror that she had nearly killed Maverick.

Sagging, she allowed the tears that were blinding her to fall. Maverick was one of the hated ones. But he had turned into a decent man, paid more than his fair share of debt. Taking a deep breath, she let out all of the tension and took aim again.

This time, if she could get a decent shot, she knew which brother to put down.
