The meeting was still going on in the clubhouse.

“Okay, who’s going to be on the away team?” Jerry asked.

The General stood up. “I’m going to make a few suggestions.”

“Go ahead, General,” Charlie said.

“First, our technical support team should stay here, where they have good reliable internet. If they end up going dark in the field, it will be a much worse problem than lack of proximity.”

“I agree,” George said. “Like I said before, having Jane and Jasmine as our eyes in the sky was invaluable during the last two actions.”

“Frank, we need a way to connect you to the force,” General Hogan said. “Any idea how to do that? You’re the IT expert.”

Frank sat silently for a moment. “Everybody has a smart phone, right? Even the privates?”

There was a murmur in the room, people nodding yes.

“Looks like it, Frank,” the General…

“You think they’re watching us?” Jeb asked.

“They’re looking for us, but it’s hard to say if they know it’s us at this location or not,” Frank said. “They can see the tops of coaches, but we don’t look exactly the same as we did before.”

“We don’t?” the Sheriff asked.

“No, think about it,” Frank said. “We used to have another fifteen coaches with us, so the numbers don’t work out. We’ve also got three trailers we didn’t have before, plus Malcolm and George’s rigs. They might suspect we’re here, but they aren’t going to know for sure.”

“What if they were watching when we did the ambush?” Jeb asked. “They might have seen us do that, and then come back here.”

There was silence in the room for a second. Frank was thinking it through.

“We took both enemy forces completely by surprise,” he said. “If somebody was…

“Uh oh,” Jane said, looking at her laptop screen. She was next to Jasmine, in the clubhouse, sitting at the long table they set up with the new 24 port hub.

“What do you see?”

“Two bodies found, a little east of the last ones. Same markers,” she said. “Girl and step-mom.”

“No, really?”

“Really,” Jane said. “I’ll go tell Malcolm.”

She got up and went out to the porch, where Malcolm and George were talking with General Hogan.

“Malcolm, there’s something you need to see,” she said.

“Another calling card?” Malcolm asked, grinning.

“Yes,” Jane said

“East or west of the last one?”

“Just slightly east,” Jane said. “I expected it to be a little further from the last one, based on what you were saying.”

“Could you gentlemen excuse me for a few minutes?” Malcolm said.

“Of course,” General Hogan said.

“I’ll be in there in a few…

“You really think this movement of enemy fighters to Capitol Reef means they think we can’t see them anymore?” Earl asked.

“I do,” the General said. “They probably think we’ll crack it again, though. This rapid influx of fighters smacks of panic to me. They want to accomplish something before they’re exposed again. I can feel it.”

“We gonna hit ‘em?” Gabe asked.

“That’s going to be my suggestion, but you guys are going to need some help,” he replied.

“Perhaps we can do something similar to what we did to that away team,” Jeb said. “Set up an ambush, and slaughter them. They aren’t too bright.”

“Sometimes yes, sometimes no. We’ve got to assume that they are watching for that,” General Hogan said. “Judging by how many of them have infiltrated the Pentagon and other parts of the government, they might have access to all kinds of capability.”

“Let’s…
