“You feel that?” Tac asked. “Two jolts, and then a small rumble.”

“Yeah, I felt it,” Jeff said, shaking the sleep out of his head.

“Looks like Jameson slept through it,” Tac said.

“When I first heard the jolts, I thought it was minions coming down,” Jeff said.

“Earthquakes start like that sometimes,” Tac said.

“What’s going on?” Jameson asked.

“Just had a small earthquake,” Jeff said.

“Do we need to worry?” he asked.

“No, they happen all the time,” Tac said. “This is an active area.”

“Shouldn’t Herb and the others be here by now?” Jameson asked.

“Yeah,” Jeff said. “Should we go upstairs and call?”

“Let’s look at the video first,” Jameson said, pulling out his phone. He looked at the screen. “Well, it’s morning. I can see light seeping into the pantry around the doorjamb.”

“Okay, I’m going,” Jeff said. He pulled the bolts off with help…

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…
