K/C: " Simmons report What the hell is going on out there?"
Thomas Simmons groaned as he and his men got the stuffing beat out of them in the alley. Three men broke from the alley and ran to the parked semi at the entrance of the alley Riley and Sheridan stopped their advance and stood stern angry facing their opponents, waiting for these feds to make a new assault the fugetive hunters stood looking confused and shaken. When Collins emerged from the semi trailer to see the pair. He looked confused weren't thee two Texas Rangers?" Then he saw the black across the badges.
K/C: " Rangers Why did you attack my men?"
The pair made no reply save to let the fugetive hunter know that they were not friends.
Pat threw a tomahawk that had been on her belt, sinking the blade deeply into the palm tree beside the tall black man's head. Some thing clicked in Collins' Mind and he needed time to assess this as he signaled his men to leave the scene.
K/C:" Those two are angry, that could complicate things."
He pulled the Tomahawk from the tree next to him. his men looked at him as he went back into the semi they ran to their SUV's and followed the truck as it rolled away.
Finding a safe spot to duck into, Neal Caffrey turned surprised to see that he was not being chased. There was nothing. He stood perplexxed for a moment Then fearful he hid again as Pat and Kim came walking, nonchalantly laughing around the corner.
K/S:"You were great."
P/R :" It was fun seein' them run like that nice!"
N/C: (Shock)" Pat? What are you doing here? "
Pat just stood there looking all the world like she was a mischievious ten year old.
her smile that of a playful predator.
N/C: " You're supposed to be..."
K/S:" She's not dead for Goddess sake get over it already."
P/R:" I went pirate, I didn't like being betraded. "
Neal actually smiled at the quip Pat had made. But Pat remained serious. This was a serious expression that made her look a lot like her uncle Cordell.
N/C:" What happened?"
P/R:"Yours wasn't the only world that they ended."
Neal realized that Pat stood there barely holding back tears. Something terrible had happened, and she had seen it happen. He took her into his arms and held her and for the first time in her life Pat actually wasn't pulling back.
N/C:" Come on we can talk later."
They got back to the mansion that was the safe house for Neal and Moz. in the warm wood toned and quiet surroundings Pat stood there just staring out the window toward where home used to be. Kim watched her partner. and Neal finally asked.
N/C:" So what happened back in the states?"
K/S:"It started with the trade thing, and there was a lot of drama as Pat and I both fought it but it was not to be, The next thing we knew there was a major disaster and it was all gone. An actual Eathquake The balcones had never had so much as a slight shift! Then there was a flood on top of that and it was all gone. Pat built Eagle's nest it was her home and mine until that day. She had been telling Us about the strange sounds all along the balcones, she had recorded it back in March. I didn't believe it either. She even had pictures and videos from other Lone Eagles and Rancher friends, But by the time anyone else even looked into it, They came too late and The fracking that was going on in east Texas took out half the state.
It's all gone, Eagel's nest the barns Everything we had is actually under water. Only thirty minutes before we had left everything for the last time. I have it on video on my computer When Pat saw it, she looked so broken. All the sweat, tears, blood, and all the memories that were there that made her sick at heart and She was physically ill. She told me she couldn't serve any government that would do that. and we played the feds then when they let us take our aclimatisation leave Pat and I took off."
N/C:" This was was all from an induced earthquake? Why?"
K/S: "I don't know. But everything she was, is gone."
The pair sat silently Neal couldn't believe it then Kim told him about Pat's actual reaction.
K/S. " It's actually was such a shock to see the destruction of everything in your life. Pat went Pirate. Before we came here she went after Philip Kramer who was a thorn in D.O.J.'s side. and she got him with a dollar bucket of radio active monster snot green paint."
N/C:" Oh Busted by agent Sherwin Williams."
Just them Mozzie got back He saw Pat and Kim and actually hadn't been able to get to Neal with the news but seeing them was a relief.
P/R:" hello little hobbit."
M:" Pat I'm so sorry I heard about the earth quake. It's good to know that you're alive. was it a Haarp attack?"
P/R:" We'll never know Moz. "
Again Pat let herself be hugged. Moz saw the pain in her eyes and the anger that was also there. This matter was clearly for the group he belonged to He knew something but at this point wasn't ready to talk to any one about it.
K/S: " We both made it but so many more didn't."
M:"I know how they did it but not why it was done but to see the after math. was it a haarp attack?"
P/R:"They induced the earth quake with some kind of gooey gel stuff. tore out half a state. I still have the evidence sample. I have some major plans for it."
M: (wide eyed)"You're traveling with a fracking gel sample?"
K/S:" Uh well we just don't want it to disappear?"
P/R:" These feds, that showed up wanted everything. Even the evidence gathered."
N/C:" And it's where?"
Pat handed it over to Neal, it was a fair sized jam jar. He looked at her the jar was nothing special but inside was this tar black ooze that looked so innocent.
M:"Why not dump this stuff?"
P/R:" I want to put it up the ass of the top dog in charge."
K/S:" Uh I know you do Pat, but you know that's not the way that it's going to go."
Mozzie looked at Neal when Riley said that. It was clear that she was not just slightly pissed off this was a major war rage. M:" She's the cousin who busted an entire gang that killed her horse."
N/C:" Yeah but there was a lot more to, it than that was actually more than complicated."
M:" And she's also the one who did so much dammage in Mexico, It can still be seen from space."
K/S:" That's something that you shouldn't hold against her, she was robbed of everything. and it wasn't planned that way."
N/C:" I am really surprised that she has so much agressiveness in her."
K/S:" while Pat, can be agressive time really has tempered it in the past few years. She had learned that patience is more than virtueous It's down right fun to watch them squirm. this has brought out the dangerous predator in her."
Neal nodded while Pat was feral, and had proven time and again she had a temper and could become dangerous to anything in her path. It was clear, that by surrendering that jar she didn't intend to really harm any one. Neal sighed as he looked at the jar that he gingerly set down on a near by counter top. He missed home even more now that he knew Pat had lost hers as well.
N/C:(thinking) "What does this mean for me?"
M:" There were a lot of videos on you tube and other places that showed haarp rings over your area right before the trade date and just after.
Pat seemed to get dizzy, and she blinked Then she stood there for a moment, her breathing changed Kim was up and guiding Pat to the couch. She shuddered for a moment then seemed to recover. Though she seemed feverish.
P/R:"Whoa that wasn't normal."
N/C:" What was that?"
K/S: "It's been happening a lot." M:"Neal has been a little out of sorts himself."
P/R:" Let me guess ringing ears , flu like symptoms, fever, and muscle aches cramping. and all the rest?"
Neal nodded as he settled on to the chair opposite his cousin. I was hurting so badly Moz had to keep them ahead of Collins and his team.
N/C:" There's been a couple of nights that my heart was beating so fast, and it's so hard to breathe I might as well have been running for a week." P/R: " Growing pains?"
Kyle Collins was reading the news reports of the massive devastation of Texas the induced earth quake that had killed thousands, had caused so much devastation it was unreal. He looked at pictures, videos, read stories from the news media. It was incredible. worse the epicenter was a government owned fracking operation. He saw the pictures from spy planes over the area and realized that Riley and Sheridan were the last of Company b. Riley had also lost what ever her brother charles had left of her family Riley was here to rescue the only relative she had left. K/C:"Simmons
K/C:" You need to go home you had family in Alabama Well Alabama is gone. And if there are any survivors in you family they'll need you."
Simmons looked at the new files and then at the director of the fugetive hunter's Task force. He read the news and then he looked up and stammered a question.
T/S:" When did this happen?"
Kyle went through his team and located every one who had family in the area and released them to go home. The shock of finding out that friends family and worlds were lost was hard on them all. there were tears even from the men Kyle's own family needed him now and he and hios team were down too many men to continue the hunt for Neal Caffrey and Pat Riley.
T/S:" Sir what happens if they team up?"
K/C" Then some one is going to pay for what they've done."
They departed the Island and thousands of criminals on the lam breathed a sigh of relief. When Mozzie heard that Collin's entire team left he looked at Neal.
M:" seems even our enemies were hurt by this attack."
N/C:" I wonder if everyone else back home is o.k.?"
Mozzie knew who Neal was refereing to. and wasn't surprised when Neal went to the internet cafe later that afternoon. Thankfully Peter answered the e-mail with a carefully worded reply. The FBI was still watching him but Peter was free. diana and Jones too checked in June and Sara were in Paris safe and sound. He even got a message from Trent Malloy.
Neal relayed this to everyone at dinner. Pat just nodded eating very little it was hard to determine in there was something really Wrong or if the grief she was feeling was just that strong.
