There are too many problems happening these days. First Avina kidnaps Krissy, then Jenny gets captured, then Toledo shows up and kills Susan, then someone switches my medicine, which actually happened first I guess, and now a problem with my team breaking out another prisoner. This one should have been easy as the prison authorities were working with us.
The prisoner was being taken somewhere and all my team needed to do was intercept their van and take the prisoner. We did this before, works nice and easy. And the guards were given blanks to use, just like our team also so they could have a small shootout and make it all look good. And no one gets hurt. At least that is the way it should have worked.
But someone gave the guards real bullets to use. My team, thinking they would be blanks did not use their vests. So 3 of them were shot but fortunately none were killed. Still, I was not too impressed with this, and neither was Baldwin. He was on the phone right away with the prison authorities to complain. They were going to look into it right away and apologized a great deal.
Angel, Mriya and Bellamy were wounded, Bellamy was worst hit so he would not be able to join us in Mexico which is not good. His skills would be much needed for that one. But Sovia assured me that she could handle things if Benson helped her. So that is what we will do. Chung did not like the idea of me going out yet but because we have lost 3 team members for a while it would be necessary for me to go along.
Only 3 more prisoners to go. We will do the one in Mexico next, that might be a hard one, no cooperation there, we did not even ask, that way they would not be expecting us. The man at this prison is a high profile prisoner, big black market buyer, he can find anything at all and I am sure that is why Avina wants him. He is a very dangerous man and will be well guarded.
We were in place in Mexico before Annelie hacked into their computer system to find out what cell the man was in and the layout of the prison. Tracy came along on this one because she had spent some time in this prison too and knew an easier way to get into it, other than going over the wall. The prison was out in the open so there would be no cover for going in, but we should not need to worry about that if Tracy is right.
Apparently there is a company that comes in every night, after the prisoners are safely locked in their cells, to haul the garbage away. We had obtained a copy of the ID cards the company uses with its employees for getting into the prison and made some for a couple of our team members. Others would hide in the back. Sovia and Benson would cut the electricity to the prison giving us time to get our prisoner and then blast our way out.
We got inside just fine with Rock driving and me as his helper. Once inside the power was cut, everything went totally dark. We were told to stay inside the truck but we shot the guards with our dart guns and the rest of the team got out and we were off to the area where our man was held. Just then some explosions happened on the far side of the prison, a diversion from some of our team but it sure sent guards running in that direction.
We blasted open doors to gain entry to the building we wanted and found his cell. We had to put a few guards to sleep along the way. Out we went and back to our truck and we set some charges by the gate and got the truck ready to go. There was a loud roar as the bombs went off and we quickly drove out picking up Sovia and Benson and went on our way.
But prison vehicles were coming behind us so we dropped several thick smoke bombs behind us and then some grenades to make a few holes in the road to stop the guards from chasing us. We left the truck with the real drivers and ran down the road to our cars and took off quickly. It went smoother than I thought. I am glad Tracy remembered about the garbage pickup at night, that helped a lot. The next two will be easy, or should I even say that?
To Be Continued.
