Holt and his adversary faced each other, both with knives out. They were only ten feet away through the moonlit water near the surface. Murdock put on a burst of swimming speed, holding his K-Bar straight in front of him with his arm stiff. He came from the side and slightly behind the enemy frogman. The victim must have sensed someone nearby, and turned toward Murdock spoiling a quick kill. The Chinese swimmer surged to the side away from Murdock, and slashed at him with a long knife as he passed.
Murdock gave a thumb-upward motion, and they moved slowly toward the shadows above them. Murdock cut the buddy line to give them maneuvering room. The forms above stopped, and Murdock saw wet-suited legs drop downward. The swimmers were on the surface. They weren't SEALS. The two men had been swimming parallel to the shoreline. Murdock and his men were moving directly toward the beach. The pair above faced each other. Murdock decided they were resting or observing. They had to be Chinese frogmen patrolling out there.
They had been swimming long enough for the chill of the water to reach through their wet suits. Murdock shook his head. He'd been a lot colder than this in his mother's living room. This was nothing compared to the training all SEALS go through at the Budweiser in Coronado, California--BUD/S for short, the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL course. Murdock and all of his men wore the Enhanced Draeger LAR-V underwater breathing devices. They were rebreathers using pure oxygen that recycled the exhaled air so there was no telltale trail of bubbles for an enemy to spot and follow directly to the swimmer.
