Operation: Rescue Wikus
Chapter One
Los Angeles, California
Tanya unfolded a couple of twenties from the stack of bills in her purse and handed them to the cab driver, waving off the offer of change and stepping out of the car. The late summer heat of Los Angeles struck her once again. She paused a moment before slamming the door and stepping onto the sidewalk. Despite the unpleasant mix of stale cigarettes and vanilla air fresher that had been assaulting her sinuses for the last forty minutes Tanya suddenly missed the frigid interior of the cab whose a/c had been running at full blast. The cab pulled quickly away from the curb and disappeared down the drive. She pinched her linen tunic and bellowed it to fan herself while she looked cautiously around.
For a weekday the Griffith Observatory was bustling with activity. A tour bus was idling in the parking lot, spilling its passengers who blinked in the brightness. Smaller groups of people were milling around the front though most headed fo

Hide and Seek - Chapter Six
Downtown Los Angeles, CA
"Well, Miss Strathmore," Hannibal began turning in his seat to face his charge. The hotel and shelter dropped out of sight as they merged onto the I-10. "You have been quite difficult to catch up with."
"Thank you," Rachael said from the back seat, though it sounded more like a question as she looked uncertainly around. The van swayed gently as B.A. navigated downtown Los Angeles traffic with a heavy foot on the accelerator. Hannibal chuckled drily and she snapped her attention onto him with curious eyes.
"It wasn't a compliment, you were just lucky. And if I'm right it seems your luck had run out back there," Hannibal said. He reached into a pocket and came away with a cigar.
"We found you in time," Hannibal added referring pointedly to the men who had arrived at the shelter on their heels. "I doubt your disguise would have fooled them for long. Besides you're not really suited for blonde."
Rachael blushed under

Downtown Los Angeles, CA
There was a light knock on the door and Rachael jumped in fright. Beside her, his face a reflection of her of fear, retired tech sergeant Frank Wood gave her hand a gentle pat. The pair looked at each other until a second knock got Frank to his feet. He shuffled across the room which was a mirror image of Rachael's across the hall. Rachael extended one hand to stop him, his name on her lips, when a voice called from other side of the door.
"Frank, it's Rose, open the door!" At the sound of his neighbors urgent request Frank hurried to throw the lock back and yanked the door open. Still clutching her dented kettle Rose hopped inside, moving rather sprightly Rachael thought for a woman pushing eighty. With Rose inside Frank shut and locked the door.
"Well?" Frank aske

Hide and Seek - Chapter Four
Downtown Los Angeles, CA
The address given by Officer Parkman belonged to a homeless shelter in the downtown L.A. area. They left Face's Venice Beach condo the afternoon following Hannibal's fortunate meeting with the helpful officer. The shelter was housed in a large building that had spent its previous life as a block of office rentals. It flanked by a seedy looking residential hotel and an abandoned bodega that had been boarded up. A few transients lingered on the sidewalk outside the bodega with their sparse belongings crammed into trash bags and shopping carts.
The van cruised slowly down the Spring Street with B.A. at the wheel. In the passenger seat Hannibal inspected the street while Murdock and Face sat in the back. At the end of the block B.A. turned the corner, glancing at the co

Hide and Seek - Chapter Three
Venice Beach, CA
Hannibal rubbed at his temple where a promising headache was settling in. The table was stacked with papers and before him on a yellow notepad were scrawled his notes. A cup of coffee that had cooled hours ago sat haphazardly on a coaster. More than a few pieces of paper were sporting coffee rings.
It seemed impossible that a person could drop off the face of the planet. There were ways, Hannibal was more intimately acquainted with them then he might wish considering the position of his men and himself. Those ways required skills that nurses didn't know. Or Hannibal conceded with a sigh, that they shouldn't know. But Rachael Strathmore had disappeared.
There was a small army searching for her. Hannibal and his men had been chasing leads for a week. The FBI was still perfor

Chapter Six
Earth, District 10
Daylight did nothing to break the uneasiness inside the walls of District 10. The inhabitants mostly stayed in their tents and the stillness of the camp was unsettling. The few who did go outside kept far away from the main gates and they scurried quickly to their tasks and back. The night had been full of sound and light. The lights were switched off at sunrise but the helicopters had continued to buzz through the skies. Yet the events going on outside of District 10 remained out of sight from the residents. Extra MNU guards had been posted at the gates and in the gun turrets towering above the camp. But none had set foot inside the gates. And if the prawns

Hide and Seek - Chapter Two
Venice Beach, CA
"Damn Face, how'd you afford a place like this?"
With a crooked grin Face looked up from the fridge to see B.A. disappearing onto the balcony. Shaking his head Face grabbed two beers from the door in one hand, his fingers closing around the slender necks of the cold glass bottles. From the balcony B.A. chucked, bemused by the crowds passing on the boardwalk below. Face pried the caps from the beers, tossing them into the trash where they jingled against the remains of several other bottles, and joined his friend outside.
B.A. seized the offered beer, taking a deep swig from the bottle while keeping an eye on a trio of bikini clad women strolling by. Face leaned one arm against the railing, squinting against the bright sun. He sipped at his own beer. Beyond the boardwalk the

Hide and Seek - Chapter One
Bakersfield, CA
"I haven't been able to track her down," Hector Vasquez said with a frown. He reached into the pocket of his suit and pulled out a photograph that he placed on the table facedown and pushed across to Hannibal. A waitress passed holding a pot of coffee in one hand, making her way to a booth at the far end of the greasy spoon. Besides the other table the diner was empty of empty of customers.
"How long ago did she go to ground?" Hannibal asked when the waitress was out of earshot. He picked up the photo and gave it a cursory glance before tucking it into his pocket.  
"Two weeks ago. We know that Ortega's hired hitmen haven't found her either, because they're still looking for her as hard as we are."
"What did she do? Prior to becoming your witness that is," Hannibal

Outer Boundary of Poleepkwa Territory
General Raddi said formally as he walked into his office. Folowing behind him Athaka paused, more than a little surprised at the sight of the two Jedi standing before the desk. He blinked and looked from the human female who was nodding politely in his direction to the other Jedi, a tall broad-shouldered Poleepkwa whose exoskeleton was of the deepest shades of green. Athaka had seen Jedi before, but never one of his own.
Raddi said with a gesture to indicate they should adjourn to the chairs placed before the large windows. Athaka found himself seated with a view to the disabled mining ship that had carried him more than halfway across th

A 9-month Project

Fri Dec 17, 2010, 11:22 AM
Sorry for the sudden absence folks. Things will be continuing soon. I've been caught up in a 9-month project (currently in month 4) that's pretty much demanded all my attention. Working on the next chapters while trying to catch up with everything I've missed.
