–--hours later, well into the night----
Fabi took off a pair of blood stained gloves and wiped her brow. Looking at her paws she saw they were slightly trembling. Looking in a small mirror, she saw what a mess she looked, blood coated her fur across her face, drying into a dark brown crust, her hair was half falling out of her ponytail and she just looked depleted and exhausted.
Fabi sighed and looked away.
She walked away and slowed as she saw the 8 body bags lined up next to the humvee. Silver tags labeled each solider and she muttered a small prayer as she passed. They will be heading back to base along with the wounded, while the rest who can go forward to find the other drone and maybe figure out why they were under attack. Well that is what Fabi hoped. She saw her crew. Somehow her team managed to come away unscathed which was a relief for Fabi. She stopped and looked at them, "Well done, everyone, today was a rough day, but we made it through..." she paused before continuing her voice soft, "We worked well and as a team, and that really reduced the casualties. I"m really proud to know all of you guys and that I know that we always have each other back, that no matter what, we keep our eye on the goal and never waver no matter how dire it seems." her voice slighly cracked at the end and she cleared her throat, "Go get some rest, tomorrow will be another day." her team disbanded and Fabi looked up at the night sky, 'Tomorrow will be a better day...' she whispered to the stars, who twinkled in the night sky.
Walking to her Humvee IT (So affectionately called by Fabi as IT) she hopped in, checking on the few wounded under her care, seeing that they were resting peacefully she went over to the bucket. Grabbing a clean rag she got it wet and started to scrub the dirt and blood off her face, the blood that came from the wounded and the ferret she failed to save. She scrubbed harder and harder, part of her wanting to scrub away the whole day away. Looking up she stared at her wet face before dunking her whole head into the bucket of water. Letting out all the air and holding her breath until she started to feel her lungs burst for air. She lifted her head taking a deep intake of breath and letting it out slowly. Tears fell down her face as she opened her eyes, she shook her head, spraying water everywhere before burying her face in a towel. Thank goodness she had a great crew to help her and reduce any more causalities. Wiping her face of tears she checked on wounded again before sitting down and dangling her paw off the edge of IT. Leaning back she looked up at the night sky, deep in thought.
