Border Shooting

Postby DES Senya » Sat Feb 22, 2014 1:54 am

It was just gone half-past four in the morning. A small border checkpoint, on the Senyan-Shireroth border, guarded by two booths, containing each one guard, one from Senya and one from Shireroth. Both were starting to fall asleep, waiting for their shifts to end at five o'clock. The road they were guarding was a small country lane that weaved from one country to another. It recieved very little traffic; around 3 or 4 vehicles per day, mostly leaving the nearby Senyan village of Femulforp. The sun was not set to rise for another two hours, and the border guards, Gatkan Hertok of Senya and Anunse Milase of Shireroth sat in their seats. Both were new to the job. Anunse came as a refugee into Shireroth twenty years ago from the barbarian wastelands, working his way into the armed forces of his new motherland, before an accident saw him relieved of his military duties and put onto the border patrol. Gatkan was 40, a father of three children, all living in the nearby village.

Gatkan poured some more coffee into his mug. He radio-ed across to Anunse. "Do you want some more coffee?". Anunse has ran out earlier that night. "Yes, please", he radio-ed back. Gatkan opened the door of his booth and made the journey across to Anunse's booth. He passed the coffee through the window. "Only another 30 minutes", he said. Gatkan went to turn around, but as he crossed the road, a gun shot was heard, and Gatkan fell to the floor dead. Anunse couldn't believe his eyes. There were no cars on the road. He couldn't see anybody in the woodland around. Frightened, he took his rifle, and headed out. He searched around the area for 30 minutes or so. But there was no retaliation. He returned to Gatkan's body, and determined that the shot had came from the Shireroth side of the border.

Soon enough, the next guys for the next shift arrived. They immediately phoned the Senyan police. This was out of character. Gatkan was a respected man in his village, and often visited Shireroth were he had many friends. Anunse pondered at the police station in the village. Why Gatkan? Why not him?

Damn. The Kildarian military and gendarmes should probably start investigating this matter...

It had been a month since Gatkan's death. The border crossing had been shut for all that time, being guarded by both countries local police forces, with the occasional visit by the Senyan military.

Anunse had fled to Hawshire in search of safety, but had decided to make a return to the area for the funeral of Gatkan. It was an overcast day, and several mourners all conveyed upon the small cemetery to witness the lowering of the coffin into the ground. Anunse had been overcome with the memories of the night of Gatkan's murder, and he'd wondered off to a more remote part of the cemetery. It was near the forest in which their old border station booths had been located in, but just before he was about to return, he noticed a little doorway into the ground, beneath the trees, with the door slightly ajar. He thought to himself, could this be where a murderer had been hiding?
