Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #266
… “PAA should not stand for Postmortem American Airlines.” Words can be weapons, particularly when used by a professional like Lyn…
“She’s not onboard, Miss Hanes,” reports 1st Officer Brown, Sara’s escort for the evening and not feeling real good about now. “It seems she never made it back.”
Lyn is wondering if life is about to imitate art. In her book tentatively titled, Constance Caraway: The Hawaiian Spy, Fanny Renwick disappears while following the man in the blue suit. Lyn is hoping upon hope that Sara is merely lost, just as Fanny had after being spotted and subsequently ditched by the blue suited suspected spy.
Sure, that is it. She will turn up soon, all safe and sound.
“We’re not leaving until we find her, are we Captain? The mechanics haven’t completed repairs on that cylinder in number three engine.” Rod Brown is seriously concerned about Sara and not just because she was his “date”. He had had his eye on her ever since they left San Francisco. It is without reciprocation that he now acts.
“Don’t worry, Rod. She can’t have gone far. I have already informed the British authorities about Miss Fenwick and you can head up a search team of your own. Now get cracking, we’ve only about 24 hours before we have to take off for Karachi.”
“Yet another glamorous destination. Pan Am should make you guys pay for an around-the-world tour like this one.”
“It seems that your Miss Fenwick is not the only person who has been reported missing,” reports a British Army security person to 1st Officer Brown and Carolyn. “Another civilian, a Ceylonese woman and one of our Army nurses vanished about the same time.”
“All women, what’s up with that? Is there some sicko out there?” Rod Brown fears a rapist is on the loose.
“Normally, I would make the same assumption folks, but we have had no previous reports of assaults onwomen, especially since the disappearances were in the vicinity of Embassy Row. We are not talking back alleys or poorly lit streets.”
“What about that blinding light we’ve heard about? Is that cause and effect or just coincidence?” Lyn is leaving no stone unturned.
“We don’t know Miss, although our base radar did spot a strange blip on their screens at the same time as the light. When the light went out, the bogey was gone. Frankly, nothing in our skies can move that fast.”
“Three people do not just vanish into thin air, Sergeant. I suggest you redouble your search. PAA should not stand for Postmortem American Airlines.” Words can be weapons, particularly when used by a professional like Lyn.
“We need to get some answers soon. We will be leaving for Pakistan early tomorrow. I want that woman found.”
