“What do we do now?” asked Jane, looking frightened.

“If I know Jeb, he’s about three steps ahead of this creep,” Frank said.

“Jerry and Jasmine are going to show up any second,” Jane said.

“I’ll text Jerry now,” Frank said. He pulled out his phone and sent the text.

Jerry, Jeb and the others held in Saloon by Lewis. I can see them through the window. Be careful

Frank, got it. Jeb always has other weapons on him. Maybe a diversion would help

I’ve got an idea, Jerry

Shoot, Frank

Sneak up here and shoot the tires on the Class C

Then what?

Jane and I will be outside the saloon door. We’ll tag anybody who comes out, and then go in if we need to

Good plan, be there in a minute. I’ll call Charlie so he doesn’t just cruise up there

Good, thanks Jerry

Frank snuck back…

Machine gun fire filled the air.

“Get into the Sheriff’s station,” Charlie cried. The all ran for it, and slipped into the door and back away from the windows. Except Jeb.

“Where’s Jeb?” asked Jerry?

The machine gun fire was all over the place. It was like somebody was just shooting wild, not trying to hit anything in particular.

“Whoever is manning that chopper has no idea what they are doing,” Jackson said. “They should have tagged a couple of us.”

Then there was a big bore rifle blast. Then another.

“Jeb,” Frank said, rushing off towards the window. He looked out, and saw the chopper starting to reel over to one side, out of control. Jeb rushed in the door.

“Get down, we don’t know where that thing is going to crash,” he shouted.

“What did you do?”

“I took out the pilot and copilot with this rifle. It’s…

Bugout Part 40 – Showdown

Bob:

Another episode of Bugout from my story blog.

Charlie drove down the main road into town. As they got closer, the sparse buildings thickened, mostly rundown buildings from the mid-50s and early 60s. Then there was downtown. It was dense, and had a 1930s look to it. The streets were deserted.

“The Sheriff’s station is right around the corner,” Charlie said. “I’ll park in front, and we can walk across the street.”

“Why there?” Jerry said.

“Well, for one thing, it will be harder for the snipers on the roof to hit it without showing themselves,” Charlie said. He laughed, but it was a nervous laugh.

They rounded the corner, and could see the edge of the park. Charlie slowed down, looking in all directions.

“Is that the Sheriff?” asked Jerry, pointing.

The Sheriff was chained onto the swing set at the park, his arms stretched out like wings. His head hung down.

“Is he alive?” asked Earl.

“What are you asking for, traitor?” asked Frank. That comment got the attention of Jane and Jerry. They looked at him, and he nodded back to them.

“Now Frank, that’s not very nice,” Officer Simmons said. “Why would you want to make a comment like that when I have your friend tied up?”

“Who’s side are you on today, traitor?” Frank asked.

“The same side I’m always on. The right side.”

“Yeah, I’ll just bet.”

“It’s unfortunate that you misunderstood my actions at the RV Park, Frank. I wasn’t going to lock Earl and Jackson up for long. I just needed to question them about the Williams Militia, but you guys have to go and stop me from doing my job.”

Frank covered the phone receiver.

“This guy is out of his mind,” Frank whispered. “But he’s got the Sheriff.”

“You still there, Frank?”

“Yes, I’m here. What are your…
