Mary Grace woke up in the front bedroom. Something was wrong. She shook Chuck.

“Whaaat,” he asked her.

“Something’s happening,” Mary Grace said, terror in her eyes.

“Here or in California?”

“Both,” she said. “Get up.”

They dressed and went into the lounge. Joe was asleep on the recliner.

“Where’s Glenn?” Chuck asked.

“I don’t know,” Mary Grace said. “Check the other bedrooms while I wake Joe.”

Chuck walked back to the hall as Mary Grace shook Joe.

“What’s wrong?” he asked, rubbing his eyes.

“Did anything happen after Chuck and I went to bed?”

“No,” Joe said. “I fell asleep here shortly after you guys turned in. Why?”

“Something’s wrong,” she said.

“Glenn’s not in any of the bedrooms,” Chuck said as he returned.

“Son of a bitch,” Joe said, getting up and dressing. “Let’s go check upstairs.”

They rushed down the hall and up into the kitchen.

“Glenn!”…

“Looks like we’re coming in,” Herb said, looking out the window of the airliner. “Tiny airport.”

Sandy stretched, waking up groggy. “What?”

“We’re descending to Bakersfield Airport,” Herb said.

“You get any sleep?” she asked.

“Not much,” he said. “You did. Jake and Frankie have been asleep for a while.”

“I’m awake,” Jake said from across the aisle. “Frankie woke up a little while ago.”

“Get anything while we were up there?” Sandy asked.

“No,” Jake said. “Neither has Frankie.”

They felt a clunk below them.

“Landing gear down,” Herb said. “We’ll be on the ground in a couple minutes.”

“Think they have a rental car joint there?” Jake asked.

“Yeah, Joe said they did,” Herb said.

“Hope everything is okay back there,” Frankie said. “Made me nervous leaving them alone there.”

“Mary Grace is strong,” Jake said. “They’ll be okay.”

“We don’t know what happened to that spirit that…

“How long has it been?” Tac asked, pacing in the small dungeon.

“Five hours,” Jeff said, waking from his doze. “Wish I had my phone charger down here.”

“Where is it?” Jameson asked.

“Car,” Jeff said. “Yours too, I bet.”

“Yep,” he said. “I powered my phone down. I’ll bring it back up when we need it.”

“That’s a good idea,” Jeff said.

“I’m not even sure the outlet in here works,” Tac said. “We’re lucky to have that light, but if the bulb goes we’re in total darkness. I don’t know how old it is. Could be from the fifties.”

“How long will the generator run?” Jeff asked.

“With just this lightbulb on it’ll run at the slowest speed,” he said. “I’ve got a big diesel tank. We’re talking weeks.”

“Good,” Jeff said.

“We could risk going outside to get some things,” Jameson said.

“True, we could,” Jeff said…

“Jameson!” Jeff shouted, sticking his phone in his pocket. “Downstairs. Now!”

“Coming,” he shouted. “Where’s Tac?”

“He’s already down there. C’mon.”

They met in the pantry, going through the first door and pulling it shut, then rushing down stairs, turning to pull the door down and bolt it.

“Where’s Charlie and John?” he asked.

“Dead,” Jeff said. “Sorry. They were out on the lawn.”

“Dammit,” Tac said. “Good men, with families.”

“Why can’t we hear them thumping around?” Jameson asked.

“They’re probably looking at the boulders right now,” Jeff said. “And remember that they’re naked. They’ll be walking around in bare feet. We won’t hear them if they aren’t jumping.”

“You were on the phone with Jake, weren’t you?” Jameson asked.

“Yep. They know what’s happening. That’s our only hope at this point.”

“How are psychics in Kansas any help to us at all?” Tac asked.

“Herb,” Jeff said. “He…
