They see it on the news, a passing clip about some American soldiers in Bolivia and the deaths of twenty five children involved in the assassination of a warlord. But it never occurs to any of them that it might be him.
When the five star General comes to the door with an American flag and a pair of dog tags, Gunnar Jensen nearly puts his fist through the man’s face and ends up punching a hole clear through the wall instead before he takes the tags and falls to his knees.
The General makes a hasty retreat after that and Gunnar starts screaming. Wordless sounds of rage and pain, because his son, his only son, is dead. He curls his fingers around the dogtags until Jensen, Jacob K is imprinted into his flesh.
Yin stands next to him, curling his hands into fists and making an internal list of everyone who will die from this. They can’t bring Jake back, but they can make the bureaucratic assholes who sit in the Pentagon pay for what they’ve done.
Jake was his son too.
