“Quiet, everybody,” Jerry said, listening to the scratchy radio sound coming out of the helicopter. He pulled out his smart phone and tapped the audio recorder app. “Stay here. I’m going to sneak up and record it.”

Frank nodded as the others watched Jerry scurry over to the wreckage. He stuck his phone inside and then stood back, trying to listen. It was hard to make out the words. Frank snuck up next to him and tried to listen too.

“It’s really hard to hear unless you head is right in there, and there’s bad fumes and heat,” Jerry whispered. “I set my phone in there with the audio recorder on. Hope it doesn’t get too hot. Almost burned my hand putting it in there.”

They stayed put for several minutes, until the scratchy voice stopped.

“How long with your phone record?” Frank whispered.

“A couple hours,” he said.

“Good…

“What do we do?” asked Frank.

“Here’s what I think,” Charlie said. “Two or three of us walk over, armed, and find out what they want. Leave some of us snipers around keeping watch.”

“I’m for that,” Jeb said. “We have to assume these guys are the enemy until we know differently. I’ll go look for a good place.”

“Me too,” Earl said. He looked over at Jackson and got a nod. Earl got up on the roof of the pool equipment house. Jackson got over to the trees, and found one he could climb up into a ways.

“Good place,” Jeb said to Earl. “I would a gotten up there…..can’t jump like I used to, though.”

“Kurt, let’s you and I find places too,” Charlie said. “Jeb, why don’t you follow behind Frank and Jerry by about 30 yards with that rifle of yours?”

“Be a pleasure,” he said.

“Where did that shot come from?” yelled Jane.

“Stay down,” Frank said, crawling to a place where he could see more. “Lucy!”

The dog ran over, tail wagging. She sat down next to Frank and looked around.

“I’m in a good place to shoot from, and I’ve got one in the chamber,” Jeb said. “If Lucy sees them, tell me where.”

“Yeah, me too,” Earl said.

“Anybody hit?” Jasmine asked.

Nobody responded, but the prisoner moaned.

“The traitor is about to pass out,” Charlie said. Then there was another rifle shot, and the prisoner fell off of the bench. Lucy’s head jerked around and she focused on a point by the swimming pool.

“Swimming pool area,” Frank said. “She’s looking over there.”

“Got him,” whispered Jeb. He fired, and a man fell off the roof of the pump building.

“Think he was the only one?” Jane whispered.

“I don’t know,”…

“Let’s get out there and see who this is,” Charlie shouted, trying to be heard against the noise of the chopper. Gabe nodded and went with him.

“Grab your weapons,” Frank shouted. Then Frank and Jerry joined Charlie and Gabe.

There it was, coming into view. It was a US Army chopper. A big transport Chinook, not an attack version. Frank recognized Private Jenkins right away as he climbed out and joined the officer that was walking towards the group of them.

“It’s our friends,” Frank shouted. “That’s Private Jenkins.”

“Good,” Charlie said. “I was hoping that’s who it was.

“Hi, Frank,” Private Jenkins shouted when he got close enough. “This is Major Donaldson.” He was a little bit older than Majors Hobbs and Darcy….Frank guessed him to be in his late 40s. He was black, with a shaved head and a warm smile.

“Good to meet you, Frank,” the…
