Bull Run Posted June 10, 2010 Report Share Posted June 10, 2010 [center][IMG]http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll137/Zapaw/Randomality/che8-2.jpg[/IMG][/center] [i]"But, Commandante how will you make your way past the fleet? Its a suicide mission!"[/i] pleaded Nathalie as several of the most loyal guerrilla soldiers, counted amongst Che Guevara's Elite Liberators armed themselves and prepared letters of farewell for their families. Out of everyone in the room, Che seemed the least anxious. He seemed content, calm, as if he had attained peace. He puffed on his cigar slowly, savouring the smoke, [i]"Mija, we will make it past the rat fleet. I need you to trust me."[/i] Tears streamed down Nathalie's cheeks, [i]"And then what?! The 8 of you are going to take on the Louisianans?! You'll die!! You'll all die!"[/i] Che looked away, unable to watch Nathalie cry. [i]"The Cubans will join us in the revolution, like the fatefull days when we aided the Dominicans in their revolution. We will attain victory as we have in the past. Only I will do it without my good luck charm, I will have to go on without you, mi amor. I cannot risk you on this mission."[/i] Nathalie violently grabbed onto Che's green coat, [i]"You cannot stop me from going!"[/i] Che gently grabbed her hands, [i]"If I lose everything else, I need to know you are fine. And our son will need one of us; it may take several years of fighting in Cuba before the people are liberated. The both of us cannot remain absent from his life for so long. You will stay mija."[/i] Che had an aura of determination Nathalie had come to loath because she knew no one would be able to change his mind and his heart... [i]"Listos, hombres!"[/i] the men moved in rank into the small camoflauge boat under the cover of darkness. Che was late; stuck struggling to escape Nathalie's pleads and crying. He gave her a kiss and a salute as he placed his beret on her head. She would be responsible for delivering the family letters as well as notifying their friends in the Revolutionary government of the mission. The men loaded into the boat and departed for Cuba. The mission braught flashbacks of deja-vous of the night when Che departed with a small team for the Dominican Republic. And so began the Revolution in Che's mind. [i]Cuba will soon be free...[/i] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
