When I Opened My Eyes, I Was in the Middle of the Battlefield Chapter 257

Epilogue (Complete)

One autumn day, a year and a half had passed.

I was sitting on the terrace on the second floor of the mansion and drinking beer in broad daylight.

It was hard and cold to sit in the outdoor iron chair, but it couldn’t be better.

The weather was clear, so the view was great, the beer my wife poured for me was refreshing, and it was because I was checking a scope prototype sent by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

In particular, admiration was coming out because of the scope performance.

“Hey… It’s scary now… … .”

It calculates distance, wind direction and trajectory, aligns the aiming point, and sharpens the target, all of which was done in the blink of an eye.

It was at the level of wanting to bind to the sniper rifle mounted at home, but there was no need to go that far.

It was because soon there would be a custom firearm that would fit the scope.

To be precise, he was referring to the development of an ultra-long-range sniper rifle and ammunition suitable for it, which had been in progress since the year before last.

That was almost done.

It was a fact that Thomas, the Minister of Defense who brought the scope, told me directly, so it was safe to say that it was official.

There will be a real test soon, so please join us.

I added a word there.

‘and… Isn’t it time to return?’

It was because I was resting.

It wasn’t about taking a few days or weeks of vacation to rest after work.

It was in a state where all operations were withdrawn.

That’s since February of last year, when Pikal was killed in Ashizif, Pakistan.

I didn’t just say that I would get a good rest.

Because Pikal, who decorated the ending of Raleple and who determined my survival, died.

I tried to take a little longer and relax.

It just took longer than expected.

The first few months I spent my usual routine at Camp Lee – shooting, running, swimming and MMA – but after I moved into my new house, I even reduced that routine even more.

It wasn’t because I was bored or tired.

It’s because new things have been created as much as the things I’ve been doing have decreased.

It was common, but a little special.

For example, we meet eyes while drinking beer in broad daylight, so we get married after dating.

In a way, it was natural.

Because young men and women who like each other were with alcohol without training and strategy.

Soon after, the party appeared.

It was Rachel, a woman bringing snacks while wearing a gown over a silk slip.


As she called me, she set the tray of food down on the table, then sat down next to me and continued talking.

“When did you get that again? Who gave it to you?”

When asked while looking at the long scope in his hand, he answered as he put it down in the hard case it had been in.

“You said hello too.”

“I did, Thomas the day before yesterday, Robert yesterday.”

“Ah, it’s Grandon.”

It happened quarterly or monthly.

Thomas would come and ask if he could return to the Pentagon, and the very next day Robert would come and ask the same question.

Or maybe the two came in reverse order.

In addition to the two, known intelligence agencies such as the CIA and FBI often visited him.

Everyone was blocked at the entrance, but the conclusion was simple.


If not, it was to find out when I would return and where I would be active.

Of course, my answer was the same each time.


There was nothing else to say.

It wasn’t because I was reluctant or disliked the field or the operation.

My break was a bit longer because something happened, and I hadn’t decided anything yet, so I just postponed the answer.

However, that also had to be finished.

My new weapon project, which Thomas had told me about the day before, was in the final stages, and I had to try it myself to see it.

Even in a real battle that is not a well-established shooting range.

Fortunately, there were plenty of places to write.

Thomas or Robert always had a list of notorious terrorists and rebel leaders.

After thinking about this for a while, Rachel asked.

“Then do you intend to work with Granden?”

“What do you think?”

“If only I changed my affiliation… It will be better than before.”


“Just as an anonymous organization was directly under the State Department, it should be under the direct control of the Secretary of Defense or the President. Having another commanding authority or person involved will make your way of doing things a disadvantage. It may be difficult to actively respond on the spot, and reporting issues and responsibilities will be complicated. Above all, if there is no middle manager, your breath will work even more powerfully. Not many people have direct contact with the minister or the president. If the current president fails to take office, he will have the opportunity to contact the next president in advance, and in that case, he may receive necessary measures or benefits before the presidential oath.”

I laughed out loud at the words that came out of me.

“and… That’s amazing… What are you waiting for to ask?”

“I can’t say no. Your colleague, your wife… How could you not care? Besides, you must be the most important person in the world.”

“A lot of people say it’s important, but… … .”

I smiled shyly as I blurted out the tail of my horse.

Not only Thomas and Robert, who visited regularly, but also old colleagues who had registered as visitors and had come every time said the same thing.

In particular, Harry and Andrei, who said they applied for the team because of me, used to talk the loudest.

As I was thinking about that, I heard the sound of a helicopter from afar.

It was the sound of light helicopter propellers turning, and I couldn’t tell who was riding it.


Of course, the President and Secretary of State also occasionally came, but it was more likely Harry than them.

It was because he came to visit me every week, and he promised to come again today.

Doo doo doo doo doo doo-

While the helicopter, which was approaching, received a hand signal from the security team and landed.

I went out to meet Rachel, who had changed her clothes.


As expected, Harry got off, followed by an unexpected person.

A soldier wearing a beret in livery.

The moment I saw him, my mouth opened by itself.


“Yes, I am. It’s been a long time since we met.”

“Wow… … .”

Admiration came out.

As he said, it was because he hadn’t seen him in a really long time.

A Korean-American US Army officer who acted as a bridge with the Pentagon and a person who prevented a bomb fragmentation in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, Philip Edman.

He had not met since he had said that he was applying for the Special Force’s Q course.

Only then did I see Philip’s outfit.

Wearing a beret and combat boots unsuitable for livery.

It was a long tradition of the US Special Forces.

“I passed… … !”

“Yes, I flew to Harry to ask you to quickly inform you of this news.”

“That went really well, congratulations.”

“I wanted to hear that from you, every time I gave up, I thought of this moment. however… … .”

Philip, who continued talking, smiled wryly.

“Lee, just because you’re resting… hahahahaha, I almost gave up halfway through. Fortunately, I was not retired, so I was able to endure it.”

“But I plan to do it again soon.”

The moment I answered Philip, Harry jumped at me.

“Are you serious?! when! Where? What are you going to do?”

“Ugh, surprise me… Let it go, man.”

I pulled Harry away, he asked, still excited.

“Are you taking me? No, what about our team? Please tell me at least that. Andrei is also begging me to bring him. He calls me after drinking alcohol at dawn, but now it’s hard to accept that. As you know, I am married, and now I have a child… … .”

“… Calling me at dawn after drinking?”

“It happened occasionally from this year, and from last month… No, that’s not the point, what about the team? yes?”

Harry asked, and Phillip, as well as Rachel, who was next to him, looked at me.

Of course, my answer was fixed.

“Whatever happens, of course we’re going as it is.”

Rachel, who became my wife, as well as the original members Jake and Jose, and the additional Harry and Andrei, were still my most trusted colleagues.

Among them, it was regrettable that Marcus withdrew from the field with the aftermath of his injury, but he would do enough to support the team.

At the same time, Harry shouted.

“Ohhhhh! at las! at las… … ! Thank you, senior!”

“It’s noisy, it’s a baby.”

“Then when is the time to return? Sooner or later, this month? No, this quarter? this year?!”

“That’s because it’s a new gun.”

“Ahh… … ! So, what is your affiliation? If the team goes as it is, as it is with the State Department? Or maybe… … ?”

Harry gave Philip a sullen look, and he waved his hand.

“Oh, no. I have come as an individual. I have not been contacted by the Pentagon, and there is no relationship.”

“I’m not sure, but I tilted… … .”

With everyone’s eyes on me, I looked at Philip’s combat uniform and said.

“But you should try on the conquest.”

“… … !”

I imagined myself standing there dressed like Philip, and I smiled spontaneously.

It wasn’t like a simple change of heart.

The fire, which I thought had been put out, had been heating up a corner of my heart for a long time.

The reason and goal of my life that I had even before entering Lareple.

It was a soldier.

I liked all of them, from the principled reason of protecting the country, training to develop strong physical and mental strength, and discipline unique to the military.

Even though there were some rough and forced parts, I was able to endure it.

Because I thought I was born to be a soldier.

“Seniors? if… Did Grandon convince you because of the Medal of Honor?”

Before I knew it, Harry said, stirring.

“It’s not… Well, the decorations are nice too.”

After killing Pikal, the news broke.

The terrorists who were trying to develop and launch nuclear missiles were tracked down and killed, and both missiles and facilities were secured and searched.

I wasn’t sure how other countries reacted, but I was sure about a few.

That day, Russia voluntarily lifted my wanted list, and China erased all news about the high-ranking officials I killed from the press.

The sluggish Taiwanese war also turned into an atmosphere of negotiations starting this year.

That too was dwindling, but for all sorts of reasons, Harry’s Medal of Honor was due anyway.

They said he was sluggish because he was organizing something, but he didn’t pay attention to that either.

Although it is related to the pride and honor of a soldier, my goal in the first place was not a medal, but a physical.

Meanwhile, Harry blinked and opened his mouth.

“then… We are re-enlisting… … ?”

“Well, I heard that it will take care of everything if you ask for it.”

“ah… Oops, I’m going to go to the army again because of you. Well, the manager or Jose will like it, but I don’t know if Andrei will like it.”

Harry tilted his head to one side and said, the phone in his pocket crying.

I laughed out loud while looking at the screen.

“I heard that even a tiger will come if I say it… … .”

Jake used to call me often to ask how I was doing, but he just called right now.

I answered the phone and briefly explained the current situation to him.

Harry and Phillip are here, and I’ll be back on the field soon, and I’m going to put on my military uniform.

Then came a short question.

– … Are there any other guys?

“yes? Is it someone else?”

When I asked back, not knowing what he was talking about, Jake spilled a word.

– Terrorist like Pikal.

Wait for a while to answer that answer.

I figured out the meaning and quickly denied it.

“Oh no, it’s not like that.”

Then Jake added a line of reason before he said anything else.

“what… I want to make some old dreams come true.”
