Jurassic World: Die Hard chapter
Chapter 20: Retaking Control Room
Somewhere on the beach of Isla Nublar
At the island, Owen was in position in some dense bushes while Barry hid in a large tree as they looked at the beach that had the bodies of the rescue team. Chelsea, Mandy and Lily are hidden at MVU-15. As they waited, they heard the noise of a helicopter coming in. Owen readied his Marlin Model 1895SBL rifle. Barry loaded the machine gun he took from one of the dead InGen soldiers in the Raptor Paddock.
The helicopter was closing in the beach and it landed on the beach in a clearest part of it so the main rotor wouldn't hit the trees. Four terrorists came out of the chopper with their weapons raised and the pilot stayed in it. The four men approached where the bodies of the rescue team is at. Owen is letting out the last grenade. When the men got closer to the bodies, Owen tossed a grenade as he quickly went down to the bushes. The grenade landed near to the two men taking lead. As the two men behind them retreated away, the grenade went off and killed two men. The pilot was about to get in the chopper when Barry shot him dead with his machine gun. Owen then fired his rifle and killed one of the surviving terrorists. As the last terrorist fired at the bushes Owen took cover by the trees. Then Owen fired his rifle and shot the last terrorist in the head, killing him instantly.
Owen and Barry walked over the area with their weapons raised. As they inspected the bodies, bushes from the other side moved and they saw someone pointed a silenced rifle at them.
"Doorbell!" The man dressed in black yelled out.
"Boneyard!" Owen responded out loud for the man to hear.
After a moment of silence, the man suddenly turned his head and said out loud, "Stand down! They're friendly!" With that, the man, who is revealed to a black man with shaved hair and a short mustache and beard, came out with another man who is British, alongside him. Then seven more men came forward with their weapons lowered. Then the black man and the British man with him came to Owen.
"You must be Grady." The black military man said to him. Owen silently nodded. Then the black man said while he shook hands with him, "Lieutenant Commander Edwin Garnett, commander of SEAL team 7. This is Lieutenant Jason Cox, SAS. Captain Davis sent us."
"Nice to meet you, sir." Lieutenant Cox said to Owen as he shook hands with Owen.
Owen quickly said to Garnett and Cox, "The terrorists have taken Claire Dearing and her nephews to the control room. These assholes are going to kill everyone in the park with that monster hybrid the people in the lab cooked up."
"We know. We spotted it on the satellite, briefly if I might add. It was heading south. We believe it's going to arrive in Main Street around 15 to 20 minutes, tops." Garnett said to him in a military-like tone.
"We got a woman and her two daughters in one of our MVU trucks over there." Barry said to them, pointing to the direction where the truck is parked.
"Head to that truck." Garnett said to a couple of men.
"I'm going with them." Barry said to the military team. With that, he led two men heading for MVU-15 where Chelsea and her daughters are at.
As that was happening, Garnett turned to Owen. Owen then said to him in the serious tone, "We need to get to the control room. That's where the only computer with access to the fail-safe system Quadtosaurus is at. It's also where he's keeping Claire Dearing, her nephews and several other hostages are it."
As Owen told him this, Garnett knew there had to more of a reason why he wanted to get to Claire sooner. He said in a serious tone, "With all due respect, Mr. Grady. We know that there at least 12 terrorists in there."
"Yes, Commander. I know that. The one way we can get to the control room is with that helicopter." Owen said to the SEAL commander, nodding his head to the chopper.
After hearing what Owen said and looked at the chopper, Garnett decided to tell him that he and the others something. So he said to Owen, "Mr. Grady, you and the others will need to get out of the island right now. Come with us. We'll handle this situation."
Being a former SEAL, Owen knew what Garnett meant and said in a serious tone, "Wait, these people are extremely dangerous."
"I'm a SEAL commander." Garnett said to Owen.
"I was a SEAL too, and yet handling them was almost impossible. This man is ex-Special Forces. He's well prepared for anything that comes at him, like he did with most of our fellow SEALs that came on this island earlier. You will need all the help you can get." Owen said bluntly to Garnett. As Owen was saying that, Barry returned with Chelsea, her daughters and two soldiers.
"How though?" Cox asked.
"I have a plan and now we got a chopper ready. You can help us." Owen said in a serious tone. Shortly after he said that, they heard some snarling noise. As the team raised their weapons, Blue came out of the trees and stopped after seeing Owen. Then Blue saw the soldiers.
As Garnett, Cox and the other soldiers were raising their firearms, Owen yelled out to them as he stayed in front of Blue, "Don't shoot her! Don't shoot her!" Blue roared and snarled at the men who were raising their weapons at her. Owen then shouted to the raptor, "Blue, it's me!" After hearing Owen, Blue stopped and stared at him. Chelsea held on to her daughters as they watched Owen slowly approaching Blue. Blue slowly approached Owen as well.
"Let me handle this. It's my animal." Owen told the soldiers who was pointing their weapons at the raptor.
"You heard him. Let him handle this." Barry said to the soldiers. Garnett and Cox were wary of this. As they watched Owen getting close to Blue, the soldiers kept their guns raised as a defensive measure, but they don't fire at the creature.
Owen moved closer to Blue, who just stares at him. Blue made some purring noises. Then Owen drops his rifle to the ground. Blue continued to purr. Then she let out a small snarl and snapped lightly once, but away from Owen. As Owen raised his right towards the raptor, he said in a low tone, "Easy." He moved his hand slowly towards the now damaged mini-camera attached to Blue. "Easy." Owen said softly as Blue made purring noises. Barry and Chelsea were nervous and the soldiers aimed their weapons at Blue. Owen reached the buckle of the mini-camera and removed it from Blue. He let it fell to the ground as Blue made purring noises.
Barry, Chelsea, her daughters and the soldiers saw in amazement how Owen managed to tame down a Velociraptor, but they were also nervous. "That's it." Owen whispered as Blue made some light noises. After a moment, Blue turned around and headed back to the wilderness. Before entering the trees, Blue looks at Owen briefly and made a soft bellow before disappearing into the wilderness.
After the animal disappeared, Garnett, Cox and the other soldiers lowered their weapons. Owen sighed after seeing Blue gone, but was relieved to gain his alpha status back to her. Barry felt better now that Blue has been tamed and Chelsea & her daughters felt relaxed now that the raptor left.
"Wow. That was amazing, Mr. Grady. How the bloody hell did you do that with that thing?" Cox asked while in a surprised tone.
"Let's just say I'm imprinted as the alpha of the Velociraptor pack. But right now, we got more important things to do." Owen said to him in a serious tone.
Garnett nodded in agreement and asked, "Yes. What do you suggest?"
Owen looked down and saw that a terrorist he killed was carrying a tablet. With that in mind, he thought of something and said to Garnett, "I have a plan and we have an advantage."
Meanwhile in the control room, Cullen sees the download on the mobile workstation has reached 95 percent. Claire was still in pain from the beating she received as she sat next to her nephews. Zach and Gray looked at their aunt silently with pride for her. Lowery and Vivian looked at Claire with a newfound respect for everything she went through and showed during the siege. Claire noticed that Lowery wasn't in the Jurassic Park shirt she saw earlier. She realized that Nolan took offense to it & forced Lowery to take it off. She whispered to Lowery, "I told you that Jurassic Park shirt was bad taste."
"Yes. I guess you were right about that." Lowery stated in a whisper tone. Claire silently acknowledged that as she sighed, trying to take her mind off the pain.
As Cullen kept an eye on the download, there was a beep and she & Torres, who was near her, saw it was coming from a video call from one of the tablets they use. Then on the main screen of the control room, it showed Owen looking serious and is at the beach area with his back towards the ocean.
Nolan, who was standing near Lowery and Vivian's workstations, was surprised to see Owen alive, but remained stoic about it. Torres and Cullen were also surprised in their own way. Porter, who was at Lowery's workstation, also saw Owen on the screen. The hostages, including Zach and Gray, were shocked and happy that Owen is alive. Claire had a look of relief in her face and let out a smile after seeing Owen alive.
Owen looks at the camera of the tablet and said to Nolan in a taunting tone, "What's the matter, Nolan? Looks like you're just saw the T-rex coming at you. I guess you didn't expect to see this, didn't you? Well, guess what, asshole. It's over. No more live feeding shows, no getting off this island, no letting that monster kill everyone in the park, no more proving your point to the world about the dinosaurs for your own worthless cause." After seeing Owen confronting Nolan, Claire smiled in a pleased tone.
Upon hearing Owen's taunt, Nolan was angered by it. He said in a low, rough tone, "I will have Claire and her nephews get fed by the Indominus in front of everyone in the fucking world and tell their families to hold you accountable."
Owen, silently angered by Nolan's threat to Claire, Zach and Gray, was undeterred by it and said in a equally rough tone, "It won't matter. Because whatever you think you're trying to prove to the world, whatever you think you accomplished, you won't be around to see it and all your efforts will be in vain."
Nolan, deciding to hit the mark on Owen, said in a rough, taunting tone, "How about your efforts would be in vain when we get the Indominus to kill everyone in this park, including Claire, her nephews, Dr. Wu and such? After that, we will name you, Barry Sebeme and all the others with you as people who failed to prevent all this chaos to the world and your reputations will be forever known by that." He hoped Owen would know how serious he really was.
"I got news for you, dipshit. I don't care about that. Because if you harm Claire and anyone in her family, you will be hunted down like wild dinosaurs." Owen taunted in a serious tone. Claire can sense that Owen was genuine about what he said to Nolan and Zach & Gray see that that there is still hope to survive the situation.
Nolan felt incredibly fed up by Owen messing with him. He turned to Cullen and ordered in a rough tone, "Fucking shut him down now."
As Cullen tried to tap on the keyboard, Owen replied in a serious tone, "You're not shutting me down, Nolan. I'm here to say and I'm not going to comply an order to stand down from anyone."
Nolan looks at Owen with a serious demeanor. He said in a stern tone, "I must admit I underestimated you, sailor. Well, guess what, you piece of shit. I'm not gonna let that happen again and you won't catch me off-guard." Nolan stated in a snarky tone.
Owen looks at Nolan on the screen of the tablet and said in a equally stern tone, "There will be no again, Nolan. You're gonna die on this island and everything you did here will be all for nothing. You won't know what hit you. You want my advice. Surrender while you still can. Because if you don't, I'm gonna feed you to my raptors. But don't worry, I will have it filmed and send it to the world for everyone to see. Because I know you enjoy that kind of stuff." Then Owen shut off the video call. Then Owen shut off the video call. Nolan was a displeased look on his face after the call ended.
Somewhere on the beach of Isla Nublar
Owen put down the tablet the ground. Then he looked right and saw Barry, Garnett, Cox and the other soldiers watching him near the chopper. Chelsea and her daughters were already aboard. "I hope this plan of yours works, raptor man." Cox said to him.
"It will. He thinks it's just Barry and me." Owen said to Cox and the others.
Back in the control room, Cullen checks out the trace of the video call and said to Nolan, "That video call is from one of our tablets."
Nolan realized what that meant and muttered unhappily, "Dammit. He took out the men on the beach." Then he went to Chernov and said in a low tone so no one will hear them, "Chernov, get our boats and wet subs prepared and have the pterosaurs ready to transport to Sorna. We'll be leaving as soon as the Indominus enters Main Street and seal it off."
Chernov acknowledged in Russian. As Chernov went over to the other area to convey the orders, Nolan walked over to Cullen, who said to him, "We copied Quadtosaurus to our mobile workstation, sir."
"Excellent. Get it to the elevator now, Cullen." Nolan ordered in a somewhat satisfied tone. As Cullen and Smith was moving the workstation to the elevator, Nolan grabbed his Heckler & Koch MK416 rifle and fired several shots the workstation where Quadtosaurus is at, damaging it and computer went offline. Then he struck the keyboard with the back end of his gun few, rendering it useless. He then said to himself, "That should be a way to stop systems from being hacked."
The hostages, including Claire, Zach and Gray, were horrified that Nolan destroyed the console that had Quadtosaurus. After Cullen and Smith got the workstation to the elevator, Cullen said to Nolan, "We still have access to it on our workstation." As she said that, Smith held the elevator doors open.
Nolan nodded silently. Then he said to Torres, "Mike, let's go down to the lab."
"Aye, sir." Torres acknowledged. Then he motioned Kaberle over to him.
"Nolan, I got Wu." Antonis said to Nolan as he picked up Wu and held him in gunpoint.
"Use the stairway to get the lab. Take one man with you." Nolan ordered Antonis as he motioned Weinrich to assist Antonis with Wu. With that, Antonis and Weinrich took Wu to the stairway exit that leads to the Hammond Creation Lab.
As Torres and Kaberle joined Nolan, he pointed his left finger at Claire & her nephews and said in a blunt tone, "Bring them. I want them in my sight." Claire was shocked that Nolan is bringing her, Zach and Gray with them to the Hammond Creation Lab.
As Torres was grabbing Claire, she was putting up some resistance. Then Kaberle and another henchman took hold of Zach and Gray. As Claire struggled against Torres, Nolan fired his pistol in the air. Claire stopped struggling and some of the hostages screamed. "Dearing, you and your nephews to the elevators now. Move it." Claire just glared at him as Torres and the others are moving her and her nephews to the elevator. Then Nolan ordered Chernov and Porter, "Chernov, plant the bombs in the emergency stairway and destroy it. Then clear out the control room and call in one of the helicopters to pick you and the others up in the helipad." Chernov nodded silently. Then Nolan said to Porter, "Porter, restore power in Main Street and join Chernov & the others on the beach."
"You got it." Porter acknowledged. Then Nolan joined Torres, Cullen, Smith and Kaberle at the elevator as they held Claire and her nephews at gunpoint. As the elevator doors closed, Lowery, Vivian and the other hostages are fearful that they might get killed sooner than later. Chernov went to the stairway and Porter began typing in on Lowery's console.
Meanwhile, at Main Street, the terrorists were preparing to move the hostages outside. Then the lights in Main Street turned back on. The hostages wondered what was going on while the terrorists waited until Quadtosaurus is activated.
At the elevator, Cullen was typing in some on the mobile workstation. Then Torres heard on the radio. Then he acknowledged, "Copy that." He turned to Nolan and said to him, "Sir, the lights are on in Main Street."
"Good. Cullen, seal it off. Be ready to open one section of the walls when the Indominus arrives." Nolan ordered in a serious tone.
"Yes, sir." Cullen acknowledged. She then activated the concrete stainless steel walls. Claire, Zach and Gray watched in shock is that the terrorists are getting their plans ready for the hostages. Smith and Kaberle kept watched on them.
Back in Main Street, the ground in the entryways began to open, the grass and the road went under to . Then two set of the large walls began to rise slowly in the entrances of Main Street. The terrorists and the hostages watched in amazement as the concrete stainless steel walls rose from the ground. After several seconds, the walls came to the stop. Then one of the men who was watching the scene said on the radio, "Main Street is sealed off. I repeat, Main Street is sealed off."
In the elevator, Nolan said on the radio, "Alright, good. Bring the hostages outside. Bring them outside. Then get some men back inside the Innovation Center and get the rest to meet up with Chernov and the others at the escape point."
"Will do." The terrorist on the radio acknowledged.
After hearing what the terrorists are doing, Claire was horrified and the mere thought of everyone in the park getting killed by the monster of the creature was terrifying to her. Nolan turned to her and said in a taunting tone, "Yeah, a lot of families will be traumatized by seeing their loved ones died live on this island. But hey, I will finally make my point clear to the world about the dangers of these abominations."
Claire, appalled by what Nolan said in such in cold tone, glared at him.
At the stairway, Chernov planted a bomb on the center part of the stairway as Antonis and Weinrich managed to get Wu to the door that leads to the hallways between the Innovation Center and Hammond Creation Lab. Then Chernov walked back upstairs and returned to the control room. Lowery and Vivian were shocked that he returned. Then the Russian henchman pressed the detonator and the bomb blew up, destroying the stairway as the debris of it fell to the floor below. Chernov smiled in satisfaction and chuckled sinisterly.
In the elevator, Nolan, Claire, Zach, Gray and the others felt an vibration of the bomb going off in the stairway. Torres then muttered to Nolan, "Sounds like that crazy-ass Russian press the detonator a little early."
Smith then muttered, "And I bet he enjoyed doing that to mess with everyone, like he always does."
"Shut up, both of you." Nolan said to his former fellow Special Forces comrades. Claire suspected that Chernov is that sadistic Russian henchman who tortured her and struck Zach in the face when he tried to protect Gray.
Meanwhile, at the helipad, four terrorists maintained patrol at the helipad. Then they saw a helicopter coming in. At first, they assumed that it was the helicopter send to pick them up to take them to the beach to get their escape vehicles ready. As the chopper was closing in on the helipad, one of the terrorists noticed that the helicopter pilot didn't seem recognizable. Before he can say anything, the helicopter doors opened and it was revealed to be Owen, Barry, Garnett, Cox and the other soldiers. Owen shot and the killed that terrorist in the chest twice with a silenced rifle that was given to him. Then Barry fired his weapon and killed the second terrorist next to the one Owen killed. Then one of the Navy SEALs shot and killed the third terrorist, the Hispanic man who threw the Molotov Cocktail at the stairway of the Monorail stop during the siege earlier. Before the last terrorist, a bald Frenchman, can warn someone on the radio, Commander Garnett shot him three times in the chest with the silenced rifle, killing him.
"Let go!" Garnett ordered. Then he, Owen, Barry, Cox and four joint Navy SEAL/SAS team got off the chopper. Two men stayed in the chopper while one SAS commando stayed in the pilot's seat. Chelsea, Mandy and Lily stayed inside the chopper as they saw Owen, Barry and the other soldiers are infiltrating the control room.
