Clive paused, listening to the sounds of the jungle. His heart was beating fast and loud in his ears. The tension of creeping through the foliage, unsure whether the enemy were right there in front of him was making his neck ache. A bead of sweat trickled down his shoulder blades. Faint sounds came from over on his left and he waited.
He moved forward another couple of paces.
‘Clock’s ticking Clive; we need to pick up the pace.’ Esme ordered.
‘Roger.’
Clive rose from the crouched position and placed his foot forward and froze.
‘Wait,’ he hissed.
He lowered himself down again.
What had he heard? Was it his imagination, or had he heard a metallic sound up ahead?
He tried to steady his breathing, even to hold his breath so he could hear more outside his helmet.
He was unsure and thought furiously, what should he do?
A thought came to him. In the previous game they had moved down the far edges of the battlefield, exactly like they were doing now. It made sense they would have a sentry out here, in case they had fallen into a familiar pattern, just as they had done.
He lowered his body to the ground and crawled forward, moving through the undergrowth. He had to admit he was enjoying himself; the thrill of being discovered tingled throughout his body, just creeping along the ground, paintball gun in hand was exciting enough, let alone a mission to complete and an enemy to evade.
He moved forward another couple of paces, his body scraping along the ground.
Crawling was great!
He froze.
There, he had heard something. Just ahead of him, so close he could touch him, was a single I.O.N Dragon soldier.
