Gabe hit the parking lot at a dead run, getting to his Suburban in a few seconds, panting. He opened the tail gate, and pulled two bolt-action rifles and his pistol out from under a tarp, looking around as he closed it back up. Then he saw them. A stream of ambulances and several military vehicles. He did a refresh on his app, and got buzzed again, seeing the proximity of the hits.

“Wounded bad guys,” he said, chuckling. He opened the tail gate again, put the rifles back under the tarp, and stuck his pistol inside his back waist band, under his shirt. He sent Hilda a text as he was walking up.

Hits are wounded bad guys being brought in. Expected this.

He walked back into the front door. There were three army officers at the information counter. Gabe overhead one of them mention Jeb.

“You guys looking…

Jackson picked up the remote for the TV and clicked it. It came to life, and he switched over to a news channel.

A few people were still carrying armfuls of possessions down into the bunker. Jake came in, his tool belt on his waist, holding two spools of wire, walking backwards into the clubhouse, feeding the wires. Then he dropped one of them and kept going with the other. When he got to the TV, he pulled the rest of the wire off the spool and started feeding it through the hole he made into the bunker earlier. When he was done, he took the other spool over to the table where the PC was, and hooked it up to the PC speakers.

“Jake, what the hell are you doing?” Kurt asked, chuckling.

“I forgot about those listening devices that we have. I put them around the place to…

Rosie sat in the waiting room, half asleep. Hilda and Gabe were sitting on chairs across from her, looking at their phones. A doctor came in.

“He’s out of his first surgery,” the doctor said.

Rosie snapped out of her dozing and looked up, worried. “Jeb okay?”

“Yes, he survived the surgery, but he has a long way to go, and he’s not out of the woods yet,” he said.

“You said first surgery,” Hilda said. “He’s going to need more?”

“Yes,” he said.

“What his chances?” Rosie asked.

“Right now, I’d say about 60%. It’ll help if he’s a fighter.”

“That sounds pretty serious,” Gabe said.

“When next surgery?” Rosie asked.

“Day after tomorrow,” the doctor said. “The first surgery repaired the bleeding. He’s got a nick in his spine, and some bullet fragments that we need to take care of. It’s amazing he lived through this.”

“We’ve learned…

Malcolm was at the wheel of the Jeep Unlimited, racing down the road, nearing the Kansas RV Park. It was late, and he was tired. Kurt was in the passenger seat next to him.

“I think he finally passed out again,” Kurt said. “Got to hurt his burns laying back there. No padding at all.”

“My heart bleeds,” Malcolm said, grinning. “Hope General Hogan isn’t too easy on him.”

“Oh, I wouldn’t worry about that,” Kurt said. “Did anybody tell you what he did to Simon Orr?”

“I just heard that he killed him with a grenade,” Malcolm said. “During a battle or something?”

“Oh, it was much worse than that,” Kurt said. “We had Simon Orr and an Islamic inbreed locked up together in Gabe’s smokehouse, after they tried to take over the RV Park. The smokehouse was made out of cinder block, and had a hole in the…
