Warning! There is a mention of an illness running through the medical staff at the hospital in the beginning of this story. It was written before COVID and I had something like a mild flu in mind, but with current events wanted to warn for it.
Summary: A shipping container wasn’t Tony’s first choice for hiding places in a gun fight, but once the doors were closed they should be relatively safe. Why was it then things only got more dangerous from that point? In the aftermath, Tony needs a port in the storm, but Morrow’s idea is a little more out of this world than Tony anticipated.
