7 men in the woods

We buried four men, not because of any moral obligation towards their bodies, but because of a more practical concern - they were starting to smell. We then picked up their guns, and continued our trek through the bushes of columbia.

A crack team of mercenaries. Hand picked by the best recruiting officers in Cape-Town, carrying tens of thousands of dollars of high-tech military machinery. And this team had just lost four men in a poorly planned ambush, with more than 50 kilometers from our target.

I understood that the men were angry. Either they were not talking at all, or they were growling and snapping at each other. Everyone marched quick, breaking through the jungle towards the enemy base. We all wanted to reach there, and start shooting and killing.
