26. Regrouping: Gerard

I sighed a breath of relief. I was alive and so was Ramin. There were cheers from men everywhere but we were not finished yet.
"Gerard be read for another attack. You and Hadley take the night watch. I can count on you my brother."
I nodded and proceded to take up my position. The enemy would be regrouping and all our men counted on me. So did she. So did Sierra.
It was already getting dark when I noticed them emerging from the woods.
"Twenty arms! Ten at long range. Five snipers!"
"Prepare your positions!" Ramin commanded. "Fire!"
Once again the guns blazed and echoed in my ears. There was only twenty but they put up a fight. Darkness consumed me and I thought I was dead. But it wasn't me.
"Ramin!"
I fought my way down the barricade to him and cradeled him in my arms.
"Ramin dear god... No! Please you can't leave me!" I was sobbing like a baby.
"Brother. It's ok. You'll do me proud."
"No Ramin. You are not going to die today." I scooped him up and carried him into the city. There was a medical camp near here somewhere. I found it and rushed inside. To my amazement there wasn't many casualtys.
I carefully put Ramin down. Tears were still freely flowing down my face as the women rushed to save him. I heard him scream out in pain as they removed the bullet from his stomach.
"Sir?"
I looked up and wiped away my tears.
"He will be fine but we are going to need to keep a close eye on him as it is serious but there is nothing to worry about. He is in good hands."
I thanked the nurse and went over to Ramin.
"Ramin-"
"Go. Find her. Find Sierra and look after her."
"But Rami-"
"No buts. I mean it. She will need you to be alive. I can't imagine what her Freud would ve if you died."
"Thank you. But promise me something. You will not go back to the barricade."
"I can't abandon them. Gerard don't be so stu-"
"Ramin! I need you alive."
Before he had a chance to talk I turned and left the tent. There was no promise that he wouldn't go back. I knew he would. I was just kidding myself...
