Bugout! California Part 111 – Re-plan

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

“This technology is amazing,” Shelly said, watching the laptop screen as enemy fighters and patriots moved around the building, inside and outside.

Jules nodded as his phone dinged. He checked the text message and grinned. “Commando team at UN Regional Headquarters in place. Waiting for attack to start here.”

“Good,” Shelly said. “I think our assets outside the building are rounding up enemy fighters now. They aren’t using many UN Peacekeepers in there, are they?”

“Mostly Islamist,” Jules said. “UN slugs have rough few weeks. Short-handed. Experiment failing. Many are deserting, trying to leave state.”

“Don’t blame them,” Shelly said. “They’re probably not use to dealing with an armed population.”

“Look,” Jules said, pointing to screen. “Commandos going inside building. See?”

The headphone scratched. “Alpha one, inside main hallway, middle of target building.”

“We see you,” Shelly said. “That hallway is clear. Go past three hallways that intersect. Turn right…

Bugout! California Part 110 – Rear Fire

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Sam and Erica sat in their coach with Mia, who was at the dinette eating some food. Erica had bathed her and helped her into fresh clothes.

“Clem, Sid, and Yvonne have been in Sarah’s coach for a while now,” Erica whispered. “This is horrible.”

“Yes, and it’s not the last of it,” Sam said softly. “We’re getting in deeper, and the enemy knows how much of a threat we are. More of our people are going to die.”

“They’re preparing Julian for us right now, I’m sure,” Erica whispered. “We’ll be lucky if they don’t try anything at home.”

“Home?”

“The Williams place and Dodge City,” she said. “We need intelligence on Julian before we go in there. We’ll need to send in scouts. Our best.”

“I know,” Sam said. “Damn UN. Can’t completely trust the apps because of those losers.”

“We should try to sleep,” Erica said. “I…

Bugout! California Part 109 – Children

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

“Should we go back right now?” Yvonne asked, looking at the ruined church before them.

“No, we need to check out the town,” Sam said. “We can’t let them shut down our resolve every time they kill one of us.”

“You’re right,” Erica said. “Let’s go into town, but nobody opens any doors, and watch the ground for trip wires too.”

“They’re watching us,” Clem said, pointing into one of the trees.

“That’s a video camera?” Yvonne asked.

“Yep,” Clem said.

Sam took aim with his pistol and shot it, the plastic exploding over their heads.

“Maybe we shouldn’t be doing that,” Sid said.

“You want them to know which direction we’re going?” Sam asked.

“Crap, didn’t think about that,” Sid said. “We ought to look for more of them.”

“Save one,” Clem said. “I might be able to figure out which IP address they’re using.”

“Okay,” Sam said. “Let’s…

Bugout! California Part 108 – Higher Education

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

The door opened, a pretty young woman rushing in, her long blonde hair flowing.

“You don’t knock anymore?” the old man asked, sitting behind a huge mahogany desk. His degrees and awards covered the wall behind him.

“I thought things were more casual between us now, after…”

“Stop,” the gray-haired man said, standing, his sweater a little too tight. “What are you doing here, Avril?”

“Sorry, Kelsy,” she said, hurt look on her face.

“Dean Lambert,” he said. “Don’t call me by my first name. Even in here. Want us to get caught?”

“The UN and their guests have left,” she said, walking towards the desk, making her hips sway.

“Good,” Dean Lambert said. “How did the students take to the training?”

“Most of them are fired up,” Avril said, moving next to him behind the desk, pushing his chair back. She got on his lap.

“Dammit, not now. This…
