Operation Barbarossa-APH Chapter 10All
He woke a few hours later to find himself once again in darkness. A couple of torches lined the walls a few feet from him and here, the floors were forever stained with the blood of victims. Ludwig tried moving out from his uncomfortable position, but found his wrists have been chained the brick wall. He coughed again, a few drops of crimson flying from his mouth and adding to the collection on the floor.
The sound of a door opening resonated to his ears and heavy footsteps approached. Expecting the worst, Ludwig put on a scowl and glared at the door to the room. It opened, revealing Ivan, now in bloodstained clothing and the pipe in his hand.
"Privet, comrade," he said pleasantly, as if this was just a normal Sunday afternoon in a coffee shop.
Ludwig remained silent and eyed the pipe in Ivan's hand.
The other continued smiling and approached the weary German. He used the pipe to raise

The alarm can still be heard on the other side of the metal door. Ludwig made his way back to the recording device and stopped its broadcast. He put it in another pocket, hoping that it would come in use later on, perhaps solving the mystery of the letter's owner. He didn't have time to linger on his thoughts and went back to pulling the medical table to the window, but it was fixed to its spot. Ludwig swore again and looked at the window.
A silhouette was there, the silhouette of a rather large man. Chills ran up Ludwig's spine as he stared at it. The figure moved as if to press a button on a console. Ludwig tensed up, dreading what would happen, though he was half expecting secret compartments to come out with armed guards and dogs. However, nothing happened for a few minutes, causing him to relax slightly.
It was then that he noticed a strange smell in the air. He coughed once and looked up to see a greenish g
Operation Barbarossa-APH Chapter 8Ivan
Ivan watched the whole scene from the camera room. He smiled. "So, you escaped the cell, Ludwig," he said. "Now will you escape the camp?" Ivan walked out of the room and headed down the hall.
Ludwig stopped at a fork in the road and looked down both directions. There was light coming from the path on the right, so he took that one.
"Scheisse..." he muttered as he hurried along the corridor.
Suddenly, an alarm started sounding off, a warped version of an air raid siren. It blared throughout the POW camp, making Ludwig drop the lantern and cover his ears. He swore again and ran down the rest of the hallway.
After a few minutes, he reached the end, but was not outside yet. Ludwig had entered another room, this one bigger and seemed more technologically advanced than the areas he'd seen, if this can even be called technologically advanced. Ther
Operation Barbarossa-APH Chapter 7Ludwig
The cell door opened with a click, though Ludwig didn't celebrate yet. He looked back at the bloody walls of the cell for anything of use later on. Finding nothing, he went out quietly, taking the lantern with him and closing the cell door.
"There has never been a prison I can't escape from," thought Ludwig as he walked down the hall where Toris and Ivan came from. He peered into the cells he passed, some were empty, and others contained the skeleton of its last inhabitant. Ludwig muttered another profanity as he continued along.
Suddenly, footsteps sounded from the end of the hallway. Ludwig decided fighting them head on was not the best option, so he ducked inside one of the empty cells were the door had corroded away. He hid the light from the lantern behind his body and turned his face away as two guards ran by.
"Scheisse..." he muttered when they had gone. "That
