Logan was one of those few people who had been around for a long time and one of the benefits of that arrangement was that you tended to build up a collection of friends and given his unique circumstances he tended to invest in those few relationships that he had garnered. One of those relationships was Doctor Bethany McCallister, she was a little older now but when he had first met her she had been a Med student studying at NYU, just like most rich kids studying to become a Doctor she was a cocky little shit but she had a big heart and wanted to do her best to make sure that people left her surgery alive. That was one of her biggest failings as a person, she hated death and would do everything that she could to stop it but death was one of those few things that none of them could defeat, eventually they would all pass on even him. She had been volunteering some of her time at a local homeless shelter when he had come to her for help, one of the kids that he kept an eye on had been stabbed and he needed someone with more medical experience then he had to stop the bleeding, well experience was the wrong word, he needed someone with medical equipment to deal with it and to look after the kid while he went and dealt with the gang that had tried to silence him. David, that was the kids name had witnessed a brutal sexual assault that the gang had carried out on a woman that had crossed them and he was going to testify against them in court so they had made arrangements to take him out. They had failed and by the end of the night the entire gang simply disappeared, it was still a mystery that the NYPD had on the active files but they weren't going out of their way to investigate, most of those kids were scum and were meeting the judgment they deserved at the foot of a higher authority at least that was the popular belief.
They were right and Logan had made sure that the bodies would never be found but when he came back he found that the girl had stayed with David for the entire night to make sure that he was alright, she hadn't needed to but had just said she was a Doctor and that was what you did. That had impressed him and he struck up a friendship that had stretched over the last 20 years, she had gone on to make great strides in her career but like sometimes happens in her profession she had decided that the money and fame that she had weren't enough. She quit her position as Chief Resident at Mercy Hospital and headed overseas with Doctors without Borders, wanting to bring medicine to countries that would never develop people with her medicial skills on their own and she felt a keen responsibility to share her talents with them. She had been with that organisation for the past 5 years and he made sure to keep in touch, some of the countries she went into were pretty dangerous but their organisation generally had good procedures and better guards to keep their people safe in those danger zones. Despite the fact that he was hiding from the Government there were still some people that knew how to get a hold of him and one of them was Bethany's daughter, she had called her Hope which had touched him deeply. Bethany was an idealist but she was also one of the strongest woment she knew, when the relationship turned sour she had left the guy and taken their daughter, when he tried to push the issue she had calmly told him that she would shoot him before anything happened to her or their daughter, that was the kind of woman that Bethany was.
Hope had reached out to him early that morning, Logan barely slept anymore so when his cell went off at 1 am he knew that there was a problem. An old friend of his said once that good news will keep, bad news would always come in the am and he had never found that saying to be wrong once. Hope was a teenager now and she sounded utterly terrified as she told Logan about what was happening with her mother, they had gotten word from her boss that Bethany was in Nigeria working at a local mission about 150 miles south of the Capitol deep in the Rainforest, everything had been working out fine until the Military executed a Coup d'état and established effective control over the country 48 hours ago. Ever since they had been cleansing the Government and the local population of undesirables in particular focusing on Igbo, a tribe that had been in disfavor over the years but to whom the Royal Line came from so they were protected until the Coup. There were rumors of mass executions and worse but the UN was still trying to get votes together and while they waited people were dying, Bethany had decided to stay when the evacuation order was given and yesterday Government troops attacked the Mission where she was located, when people friendly to them arrived they found the Nuns and Father there dead, executed and Bethany was missing along with all of their medical supplies. Officially there was no word about her or about what was happening, unofficially they had gotten word that she was to be made an example out of in some manner but that was still being decided.
Hope was genuinely scared which wasn't something that happened often, she was too much like her mother but she was scared now and her mother had always told her that if she was in real trouble to call Logan. She knew him and what he was rumored to be capable of so she had done as she was told and Logan calmly told her that everything was going to be alright and that he would take care of it. The next few hours passed very quickly, Logan informed Rogers he couldn't not tell the guy because of their situation though Steve couldn't go with him but he could tell that Rogers wanted to. Logan just told him it was fine, that he needed to move quickly and that anyone else would just slow him down, he didn't notice Steve open a comm channel to someone else because he was too busy gathering equipment and supplies. Logan knew the jungle well and knew exactly what equipment to bring all the while trying not to think of what could be happening to his friend right now, the type of thugs that had her weren't known for being the nicest of people but then again, neither was he. Steve had said that he could take the Quinjet to get him there faster but he knew someone who might do them a favour, a young man who could fly at Super Sonic speeds and deliver him in for an aerial insert into the area. They had all the equipment and he had SHIELD's contact details, Coulson had agreed with the usual requirement that down the line he would call in the favour, that was fine with him that was just how this sort of arrangement was supposed to work. Strapping all of his equipment down on his body, he tossed his backpack onto his shoulder and walked out to the hanger which would raise up and take him outside where he would wait for his transport.
