THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 131
…”The Koreans have been searching for a way to devastate the world and we in Talibanistan were their unknowing partners; at least me, the biggest fool,”…
“We want to go back with you Roy!” Gus emplores.
“Francine will be picking you up and get you back to the ranch.”
“What about Braden and where are you going?” Deke Wonders.
“Miss Bouchette will take care of everything, you know, take you to visit Braden and stuff,” Roy reassures. “As for me, I have to see someone else in a hospital, over at Lovell. He has some information I need to hear and it can’t wait.” —
–– And he does divert to LSC, specifically Elgin AFB Hospital where Aldona Afridi is recovering from his attack. He is polishing his variety of schemes to rectify a wrong, having got the word about Roy’s imminent arrival. He is busy constructing a diagram of a laser dampening field, similar but different from the energy absorption field that the McKinneys did not have time to activate, remotely and pre-disaster.
He is finished, loaded with instructions and general information by the time Roy makes his grand entrance.
“Have you had enough action for a while, I know I have?” He shakes his ally/acquaintance’s hand and sits down to listen closely. “I have spoken with Lt. Gilbert and she gave me an abridged version of your de-briefing. Do you really think that this was the Sang-Ashi plan from the start?”
“The Koreans have been searching for a way to devastate the world ever since they conquered their southern neighbors and we in Talibanistan were their unknowing partners; at least me, the biggest fool.”
Jealousy is a cancerous emotion that spreads wildly among the evil.
“I have fashioned a schematic for you to forward to the crew of the New Mayflower, if it’s not too late.” Aldona Afridi is doing his best to right-a-wrong.
