Setting of The Story
Climax/Resolution and Conflicts
Resolution: Alex is in the hospital, he sees the nurse filling his IV with some medicine she looks at him and says "You have a package from a- uh, M16? Wow! Also it says that the citizens of Kenya wanted to thank you and your efforts are greatly appreciated". Alex opens the box and is surprised to be given a Playstation 3 and a copy of Assassin's Creed. So this is where our hero is left off, sitting in a hospital bed enjoying himself with his present.
Internal Conflict: Alex's internal conflict is realizing that he can't just do this whole spy thing forever, he is contemplating his decision if he should just confront M16 and resign from his position. Alex is also thinking about Sabina through out his entire adventure and he keeps reminding himself if would have just kept her out of this none of what happened would happen.
External Conflict: Alex is also having to deal with this man who almost killed him, along with Sabina and her family. He also deals with the constant beating from McCain's Henchmen and finally having to hold onto that bar for ten to fifteen minutes.
