Van Rotterdam retiring!
Van Rotterdam retiring!
Camera’s quickly moved to a central point of the room. Behind it, David van Rotterdam took place. It was silently in the room.
“Brothers, sisters, European civilians, allies, and clients. I will bring upon you news. After a long time of thinking I have decided…. to retire!”
The few journalists gasps and shouted words to the Orange One.
“QUIET! I have decided to retire from the ECA military forces as the Colonel, or whatever Adler demoted me to, I will step down. I will stop immediately with all my functions that I had rested as a European Army Officer.”
Journalists once more tried to fire questions to the man behind the desk on stage. Yet van Rotterdam couldn’t seem to be impressed by it.
“After all I tried to achieve, I only found dead ends. Hard brick walls, stupidity idiots and incompetent leaders and commanders. With the abandoning of North Africa, I tried to do my best in other parts of the world. Behind the screens (skype for as an example) I tried to be productive. I have designed weapons for the ECA, and battle protocols (GP’s and stuff). I even prepared a bunch of paperwork, yet all I was hearing was that I am a pain in the ass”
Van Rotterdam rubbed with a piece of paper his wet eyes. It was clearly that this was the last drop that the Orange One could bare. “My patriotism may be questioned, yet I was realistic. I had big dreams for Europe, for the world, but I cannot continue anymore. After several burnouts, the doctor’s advice me to stop at this very moment. (see that as my occasionally psychic fuckup, yet my shrink didn’t suggest this. I make this up right here.) With pain in my heart, I will abandon the Europe forces. And I give you a fair warning, future commanders of Europe. There are snakes between the grass fields, waiting to strike, just where it hurts”
Journalists fired question after question but Van Rotterdam didn’t care. He took a sip of water and cleared again his wet eyes.
Van Rotterdam stood up, and with trouble walking straight, he left the room. Journalists were astonished left behind.
The entire next 2 minutes it was silently
