As soon as he skidded to a stop at the bottom of the rocky ravine, Gaeta knew he was frakked. Forget that the spill meant that he had lost valuable running time, he could feel his left knee throb and protest as he struggled to his feet. It wasn’t unbearable, but it was the same old injury as before and as he limped around the stones, he knew he was going to be caught.
He stumbled down the steep creek bed. He could hear the Centurions thrashing their way down but he tried to tune it out. This is it, he told himself as he stumbled again, barely catching himself from falling over a twenty foot drop in the steep stream bed. Even though he knew it was impossible to out run a Centurion, he tried to regain his feet. If he was running, then they would shoot him and that would kill him. That would be better than being captured. He had no illusions about himself. Everyone broke eventually.
Suddenly something slammed him on the back, pinning him down. A Centurion, he thought, standing on him. He struggled and the pressure on his back increased to where he could barely breath. But the heavy metal foot didn’t press down as hard as he knew it could, and he still hadn’t heard the tell tale whirr of the gun hand activating. They had orders to capture him then. Not kill him, at least not right away. In a way that made his role easier to play.
He just had to hope that Kara didn’t do something stupid like come back for him.
Footsteps crunched along the creek bed, the tread too light for a Centurion. “Well… Isn’t this a surprising turn of events.” Felix couldn’t see Cavil but the man’s cynical tone was unmistakable. Cavil stepped over and knelt down, making sure that he could see Felix’s face. “Fancy meeting you here, Lt. Gaeta. Here I am, taking a nice summer walk, enjoying the new body that you made so necessary… I was thinking of you, and your… kindness of spirit. I was hoping that one day, I would be able to…. Have a little talk with you, so this works well, don’t you think?”
“Not… really, no…” Felix choked out.
“Hmm, well that is just too bad,” Cavil said. He stood up and moved out of Felix’s line of sight. Suddenly, Felix felt a sharp sting in his leg, like a shot. Cavil stepped around to where Felix could at least see his feet and knelt down again. “Humans can be such children sometimes, for all that they’re the elder species. I think, Lt. Gaeta, that you’ve been acting more like a child than an adult. You were quite… naughty with me earlier. And now? I think you’re a little cranky and over tired, so you are going to take a little nap. And when you wake up, I think I’ll see if I can’t convince you to have a nice long chat with me about… well… important things.”
Felix felt his vision start to swim as the drug Cavil injected him with started to take hold. Whatever it was, he thought dimly as he closed his eyes, it was fast acting. At least Cavil would be wasting his time on him, and not going after Kara. She had the Scepter, and he was beginning to think it really would lead them to Earth. That meant he had to hold out for as long as he could.
