Reversal - Chapter 137
“Hissssss~” Wrapping herself around Christian’s torso, the snake hissed.
“I love you too my girl, I was stupid to feel lonely when I was with you” Christian smiled weakly, then turned his gaze and sighed.
With difficulty, Christian crawled as best he could towards the hole, arriving 5 minutes later.
Peeking his head out, Christian sighed with relief to see that they were intact, as he stared at their faces “I treated them pretty badly…”
Remembering his whole personality so far, Christian sighed again “I just wanted to train… I guess I never took a moment to see them as my loved ones”
Suddenly frowning, Christian smiled bitterly as he picked up his pistol with his last bullet.
After a few seconds, the roar of a vehicle came to the scene.
“This is it…” Staring at his gun, Christian seriously thought about suicide, not wanting to live through what he saw during this time.
But just when he thought all was lost, a shout enveloped the place “WE COME TO ACTION BITCHES!!!”
Nearly dropping his weapon, Christian smiled awkwardly at the sound of Greed’s voice, as relief spread through his body.
Quickly getting out of the vehicle, the team looked at the scene with a frown, seeing shredded bodies, a car in calls and several blast craters.
Scanning the scene, Sloth found the back of the man who would be impossible not to recognize by his hair, causing her to quickly run towards him.
“Lucifer!” Approaching Christian, Sloth froze at the sight of the large snake enveloping him, quickly pulling his knife from his pocket “Don’t move, we have to kill it”
“Leave her…” Smiling awkwardly, Christian raised his trembling hand and caressed it “She’s my friend”
“…” Raising his eyebrows, Sloth shrugged and scowled at the man’s half-naked body and the obvious bleeding holes in his limbs, then turned his gaze to the kill zone at his back and spoke “You had a hard time”
“More than difficult, look at this, it’s an eye!” With an eye hanging in her hand, Greed reached around the back as she looked at him curiously, then looked at the muscles visible on the sides of the flap jacket and clicked her tongue “Quite a body you were hiding”
Coming to Christian’s side, Wrath crouched down to Christian’s height and looked“ at his wounds with a frown “You’re bleeding badly…”
“Where are the girls?” looking all around, Gluttony reached the spot and asked.
“They’re still asleep…” Pointing towards the hole, Christian answered “Could you give me something for the cold? I think I’m going to die of hypothermia…”
Taking off her military jacket, Lust wrapped it around Christian and smiled “Although I’d like to undress you more, I think I can wait.”
“Hissssss~” hissing menacingly, the snake rose aggressively in front of Lust, causing the woman to startle and back away.
“What the fuck!?” Lust exclaimed in fear “What are you doing with a snake!? I hate snakes!”
“…” Turning his gaze, Christian managed to hear the roars of helicopters, while in the distance he saw 5 dots approaching.
“Tsk, these bitches sleep like it’s nothing” With a branch in her hand, Greed poked Envy’s face with amusement.
“You’re really bleeding badly, we need to get you out of here” Without taking his eyes off Christian’s body, Wrath spoke again with seriousness and concern in her voice.
“The extraction medium is here” Sloth commented, pointing towards the helicopters, that were a few meters away from them.
“Help me up.”
“I’m not going anywhere near that thing!” Walking away quickly, Lust pointed toward the dark snake on Christian.
“It’s not a thing, it’s Lilith, my snake”
“You even named it!?” In disbelief, Lust continued “You can’t take her to the barracks, it’s illegal!”
“It’s also illegal for you to harass me every day” Smiling slightly, Christian replied, momentarily stunning Lust at the sight of his smile.
“Lucifer, I’m glad to see you alive” Arriving from the helicopter, Alexandra sighed and spoke, then looked around the place and continued “And I see you had fun”
“Major, I’d like to talk to you, but I think I’m bleeding to death” Being supported by Wrath and Gluttony, Christian struggled to his feet and spoke.
“You are dismissed, we will leave the soldiers to clean up the place, and make a report of the situation” Alexandra nodded, then looked at the hole and spoke “Glad to see everyone is alive”
“Not everyone” Pointing towards the hole, Christian spoke “Among my clothes I have a wallet and the necklace of soldier Smith, she was hit by a shot while we were fleeing the place, she was completely healthy before that, that death will fall on the head of the one who gave the order to retreat”
“We’ll get it to the family” Frowning, Alexandra nodded.
“She had a husband and children…” Remembering the woman, Christian sighed and spoke “Give me his details later, I’ll transfer money to the husband so he can raise his children without problems, it’s the least I can do after failing to save his wife”
“That’s not necessary, he’ll get the pension from-”
“Major Walker, do you really think a man can easily raise two children with just the measly money they give for alimony?”
Being dragged towards the helicopter as Lust, Sloth and Greed reached Envy and Pride, Christian took one last look at the scene in front of him, but on the way, something caught his attention.
“Wait, take me over there” Pointing towards a corpse, Christian spoke.
With hesitation, Gluttony and Wrath nodded, then reached to the side of the corpse and slowly lowered Christian down.
Reaching under the corpse, Christian picked up a silver necklace from which hung a pocket watch, only to open it and see a picture behind its cover.
“…” Looking at the picture of a smiling family, Christian looked at the corpse’s face and sighed “Let’s go…”
Thursday, December 02, 2017. (1 month later)
Looking at the snake in front of him, Christian sighed and hugged it.
“Beautiful Lilith, are you hungry?” Hugging the snake, Christian whispered wearily.
Smiling slightly at her responses, Christian kissed her scales and nodded “I’m hungry too, let’s get some breakfast”
Sitting up in bed, Christian looked at the clock hanging on the wall and sighed “5 am…”
Getting up with a yawn, Christian stretched his body a bit and sighed contentedly, then grabbed his clothes and started to get dressed.
Fastening his boots, Christian stretched his arm and whispers “Come on gorgeous, another day begins.”
“Hisss~” hissing, the snake crawled up Christian’s arm, then climbed up, and wrapped itself around his shoulders.
“You’re gaining weight, friend” Stroking the scaly body, Christian smiled.
In these months, the snake grew quite a bit. If it was the thickness of a baby’s arm before, today it could be said that its thickness was the same as a child’s arm, while its length grew from 1.5 meters to 2 meters.
“Yes, you’ve gotten really big” Stroking the snake’s head, Christian looked at the sleeping women and smiled slightly, then walked down the hall, and left the place.
“Lieutenant!” Walking out of the room, two women guarding the door straightened their backs and gave a military salute.
After the abandonment disaster, Christian was upgraded in rank as a reward, moving directly to Lieutenant while the rest of the team moved up to Officer. As for the Seals team, Christian hadn’t seen them again after that day, proving that Alexandra quickly got them out of the place, to avoid the women’s deaths.
“At ease” Nodding, Christian calmly continued on his way.
On the way, Christian was saluted multiple times, as of all the soldiers focused on him. But not caring, he simply nodded and continued on his way.
Arriving at the room with the table in the center, Christian looked at the makeshift kitchen on the side and smiled “Today we’ll have bacon and eggs, while you my pretty snake will eat… how about a piece of steak?”
“I see you like the idea”
Th3 room that used to be for interrogations, was taken over by Christian as a kitchen for his team, they even added a gas stove, sink and everything they needed for their meals.
After cooking for about 30 minutes, Christian finally finished setting the table, and left as much food as for 15 people, then looked at the clock on the wall, and counted.
“We’re here!” suddenly opening the door, Lust exclaimed with joy.
Since Christian went through that difficult situation, he started to change his attitude towards his team, noticing that he had really treated them badly before. That change in attitude surprised the women, but they really enjoyed the way things were right now.
Christian cooked their 3 meals, didn’t beat them as much in training, and even showed genuine concern for them.
Smiling, Christian sat at the head of the table, then picked Lilith up, and positioned her on his lap.
Climbing up Christian’s chest, Lilith approached the table and began to slowly swallow a large piece of cooked meat.
“I always get chills watching that” Shivering slightly, Greed sat up and commented.
“Don’t even tell me, I have a phobia of that shit” Lust whispered, looking at the snake with a frown “Because of you I have to sleep alone.”
“…” With the piece of meat still entering her mouth, Lilith’s eyes looked directly at Lust, causing the woman to tremble slightly.
“Good morning” Envy nodded with a serious look, sitting down next to Christian.
“Good morning Envy, did you sleep well?”
“Yes, thank you…” Taking a piece of bread, Envy replied.
Since Christian saved Envy and Pride’s life, their attitudes underwent several changes.
Previously Envy hardly spoke, only took orders and always showed her cynical smile in her communications, but today, the woman opened up much more with everyone, especially Christian.
As for Pride, she was always communicated very little, but now she usually smiled slightly from time to time.
“This tastes good” Pride commented as she ate.
Rubbing his eyes wearily, Sloth made herself a coffee and spoke “What mission do we have today?”
“Today we are going to Africa”
“Africa?” With a sudden twinkle in her eye, Greed asked.
“Africa has a lot of gold and diamonds, no?”
“I think so”
“I’ve never eaten a lion, do you think it tastes good?” Pouring bacon with eggs on her plate, Gluttony asked.
“I heard it tastes like veal” Pride replied.
“And the elephant?” Gluttony asked.
“I read it tastes like Moose, but the meat is juicier” Smiling, Christian replied.
“Where in Africa are we going?” asked Wrath curiously.
Frowning, Sloth spoke “Wasn’t Somalia abandoned after the disaster with the helicopters?”
“Yes, but it looks like the new president wants to get into the place, so we’re going to go support”
“Who is the new president? I haven’t been home in a long time and I didn’t really vote” Curious, Envy asked.
“The owner of the Trump company”
“That fat blonde?”
“What does she want to do in Somalia?” asked Sloth.
“Clean up the image of the military, I think she wanted to take down the country president”
“Again, advocating freedom?” Raising her eyebrows and with a mocking edge to herdvoice, Pride commented.
“As usual” Christian smiled.
“Don’t you think it would be nice if we went on a mission to protect the oil extractors? Maybe we could steal a few hundred liters” Greed interrupted hopefully.
“It doesn’t pay off, you won’t have a way to take it with you, besides I don’t plan to participate in the theft, it would help the government and I really don’t want to help them” Pursing his lips while remembering the real reason for this war, Christian simply shook his head.
