Keep your eyes open boys Eagle claw yelled into my earpiece. Our infrared goggles illuminating our night vision. We cant afford to lose this one He was right we couldnt. This was the 6th day of the training camp and we had already lost 9 guys. Some werent tough enough to handle it and quit and the rest werent strong enough to be trusted to make it through so the commander sent them packing. 6 of us were left. At 21 I was one of the youngest recruits but I was the best. No one could run faster, or lift heavier or push harder I was the ultimate soldier and I was determined to make the ranks. To your left Taurus something's sneaking up on you Eagle claw screamed into my ear. I rolled on the ground behind one of the obstacles, right before a barrage of bullets, blanks, were unleashed on my team. Horus got shot so he had to get out of the exercise. Smiley was next then China. It was only me and Caesar left and with just the two of us we had more than we needed to capture the enemy. Caesar was just as gutsy as I was and in two signals we knew what the other was thinking. Now or never. We crawled, we rolled we ducked and weaved. Inching closer and closer, taking out targets as we moved forward. We estimated that Delta team still had about 5 guys left in the exercise but they werent a match for us, the last two remaining Alpha operatives. I looked up and saw their flag, it was so close. Eagle Claw, how many hostiles on the perimeter. I asked 5 Taurus Caesar, how many do you see? Im seeing the three guarding the flag Ok so we have 2 fuckers stalking us Yeah and I know how to flush them out Caesar grabbed a grenade and threw it over his shoulder. The explosion caused immediate gun fire from delta team, first from the three guarding the flag and then the other two who gave away their position by firing from my left. Idiots I hunched close to the ground took a quick peak and saw the fucks. They were waiting. Pussies I thought. Waiting for the fight to come to them. Well I was about to bring it. I aimed and with one shot I took out the first target. The lights on his vest started flashing and I could hear the "Oh shit!" from his backup, he knew he was next. Behind me I heard a firestorm of shots and knew Caesar was fighting his way to the flag. I disposed of the second target and ran to help him. He was just about to get to the flag when Eagle claw yelled Theres one more behind you. I knew that trick. You leave a man deep in the field so that when the other team passes by he stays quiet and then shoots them in the back when they get close to the flag. Not today. I looked through my goggles scanning the perimeter for action and as I spotted the fucker he shot Caesar. Shit! I was too late to save Caesar but not too late to take the sniper out. We got it Eagle Claw!! The alarms went off sounding the end of the exercise. My team ran out to me cheering our combined effort. It was a good day. Good job men Colonel Backus said. A tall muscular man with large hands and thick fingers. He was in his 60s but his body was that of a younger man, a younger man on steroids that is. Hit the showers men we will discuss placement tomorrow. Yes that was what we were here for. Placement in the Armys elite tier of fighters. I wanted it badly and most like I was going to get it. Caesar ran up to me and punched my shoulder. He was 23 and like me was about 6 feet tall. He had jet black hair and green eyes. Caesar wasnt his real name, David was, we just called him that because of his Italian roots and because he had to get everything his way. Next time shoot a little faster Caesar joked I would at least like to be alive to celebrate my victory Ok man next time We headed for the locker room and you could tell there was an air of excitement. Eagle Claw was already at his locker and was now pulling down his underwear. I slapped his ass as he bent over, everyone did it, didnt matter if you were straight or gay the man had a great ass. Firm and round. It was definitely his most noticeable feature. Thanks Edwin for catching that last one, he almost ruined the party I said as I started to undress. Thats my job Nick Edwin was extremely modest, he was the eyes and brains of our team. He was just as fit as the rest of us but he was mostly there to be the tech guy. I started to undress and as I removed my underwear the hooting and hollering began as it usually did at shower time. Woohoo Oh yeah Thats what Im talking about BULL BALLS!!! Just like Edwin was known for his ass I was known for my balls. I have huge nuts and they hang really low. Ive always been teased and heckled about it so the guys in high school started calling me Taurus and it stuck.
