The Humvee drove up to the front of the park. Hilda ran down the stairs and over to the gate to meet them and let them in. She looked inside. It was just the Major, one of the privates, and somebody laying down in the back.

“Hi,” the Major said. “Hilda, right?”

“Yes, Major. Do you have wounded?”

“Yes, my Lieutenant. Is there a doctor nearby?”

“Yes, I can get one here in just a few minutes. I’ll go call him. You can pull over by the clubhouse. We have a stretcher in there.”

“Thanks so much,” he said, and he drove forward and parked. He got out as Frank, Jerry, and Charlie came running over.

“You alright, Major Hobbs?” asked Frank.

“No, I’m not alright. We took a real beating back there,” he said.

“How badly is the Lieutenant wounded?”

“Looks like he’ll recover, but he’s lost a fair…

Bugout Part 28 – Body Disposal

Bob:

Here’s the next chapter of Bugout! from my story blog.

“Drop the guns,” the man behind them said. Jerry and Charlie looked at each other. They both put their guns down in front of them.

“Now, turn around real slow,” the man said. “Keep your hands where I can see them.” The two men slowly turned around.

Jerry looked the man over. Total redneck, old guy. He’s not going to be fast enough if I do something, he thought to himself. Then he saw some movement in the bushes. Earl.

“Hey, Jimmy, come on out,” the redneck said. “I’ve got these guys under control.”

“Why,” came a voice from behind them, by the truck. It sounded like it came from a scared teenager.

“You’ve got to make your first kill sometime,” he said. “No walking away from it this time. Get over here, boy.”

“No,” the voice said.

“Oh, crap, you’ve got to be kidding me,” the redneck said with…

More distant gunfire. The muffled pop pop pop sound. Lucy looked towards the windows and growled.

“I can see some smoke,” Charlie said over the cellphone to Hilda. She took the phone away from her ear.

“Charlie can see some smoke.”

“Maybe we should all go up there to continue our meeting, so Charlie can be involved, and so we can see what’s going on,” Frank said.

Hilda nodded.

“Charlie, we’re coming up.”

“Great, see you in a few minutes.”

Another pop pop pop, and two more loud explosions. Then more pop pop pop. It was starting to go faster now….too fast to count.

“That’s more than just six guys shooting at a couple of militia nuts,” Jerry said.

“Yeah, there’s a fire fight going on down there,” Frank said. “I hope the Major and his men didn’t get ambushed.”

“Me too,” the Sheriff said. As they were walking towards…

Bugout Part 26 – On the Run

Another episode of Bugout! from the story blog.

Jerry, the Sheriff, and Major Hobbs looked down at the fresh tire tracks, and the spots of blood next to them.

“Well, It’s pretty obvious at least one man escaped that fire fight,” Major Hobbs said.

“Let’s follow the tracks to the highway. Maybe we can tell what direction they took off,” Jerry said.

The other two men nodded, and they followed Jerry as he tracked the fresh tread marks. They could follow them plainly all the way to the road.

“Looks like they turned left,” Jerry said, looking at the Sheriff. “What’s off to the left?”

“A few ranches, and then wilderness for a lot of miles,” the Sheriff said. “If they are going that way very far, they’d be way north.”

“So if we’re lucky, whoever escaped didn’t really know where they were going. If the driver was wounded badly, we may find him up the highway,” Jerry…
