Gage Hunter tried to swallow his impatience. The SEALs had split up; he had moved with three of them to the other side of the ridge. They’d gone through the night fighting ankle to knee-deep snow. He was cold, his fingers numb, even with the protective gloves on his hands. The stars blinked above them in the night sky. It was 0400 by the time they’d gone down four thousand feet lower and onto another trail using their GPS.
Wyatt Lockwood had called the SEAL team leader, McQuade, alerting them to a little-used tunnel that was another entrance and exit for the cave complex. He’d gone over all the original drawings made by the SEAL contingent that had discovered it ten years earlier. No one knew it was there until he’d called and alerted them to the little-known tunnel.
At this altitude, the snow was negligible, and they trotted with their infrared goggles on, hurrying toward the entrance. The LPO—lead petty officer—Chase Drummond was in the lead, his M4 ready for action should they run into Taliban. It was doubtful that they would in Gage’s mind, because usually Taliban hunkered down at night to eat and then sleep. They had no night-vision goggles with which to move, as U.S. and UN forces did. Still, they had to assume they could run into a group of them, especially near this cave entrance. Their breaths shot out in white vapor as they increased the tempo of their jogging down the trail.
His heart was focused on Alexa. He ached to take her into his arms and protect her. It had been the most helpless feeling in the world to sit and wait for something to happen at the main cave entrance. When Lockwood had called Chief McQuade by sat phone, Gage had silently cheered in triumph.
Yes! There was another entrance! And maybe . . . just maybe . . . they could get inside, find those women . . . find Alexa . . . and rescue them.
