Reginald Gibson must have pissed himself when he dropped down that wormhole. A flicker of hope sparked. Unfortunately, you are not. Adrianna sprang. Viper-quick, he ducked for it, but Deborah was already there. Sprawled on the floor, she fired. The bullet caught the General in the side and pushed him backward, but he lunged again. Adrianna swung the desk chair and shattered it in his face.
He toppled back, stunned, but still scrambling. Death will be instantaneous. Mara shoved him face down on the carpet and yanked his hands behind his back.
Adrianna dropped down beside her with cord pulled out of the draperies. Together, they tied his hands and strung them to his feet. The women obeyed. Alone with the General, she watched the puckered hole in his side ooze bright blood.
He panted with pain, but neither spoke nor struggled. Mara felt as if great hands squeezed the blood and air out of her lungs and into her head. It pounded with rage. The General lay unconscious. The General roused, groaning, as the men hauled him to his feet. They grabbed him under the arms and hurried down the hallway.
They rushed down the stairs into the ruined lobby—shattered furniture, broken glass, walls pitted with holes, and the stink of gunpowder. And bodies. Mara counted two—four—five—dead, staring faces as they ran into the street. Three cars idled, one full of Deborah working on Francisco. A crowd had started to gather. She hurried to the last car.
The emergency sirens were almost on top of them. She shoved him away and fell into the car. Boris shot them across the street into and alley. They flew, out the alley, across another street, and another. They could see the highway ahead. They angled northwest through wheat country, the highway a pale ribbon among the Crimson Grass. Planted after the purge, farmers would plow it under once mature to cleanse and nourish the soil. To Mara, it looked like a sea of blood. Boris checked the gauge.
Not Gregor, not Dharma, not Francisco. After a long silence, she heard him suck a tooth. It was full dark before they stopped. Mara made two calls. Both times she gave the name Geometry Cabot to the receptionists, not knowing if it would give her access to the right people.
It did. She hung up after the second call with a plan forming in her mind. It took shape as she washed the blood out of her clothes in the bathroom, and finalized while she vomited in one of the toilets. Boris met her in the deserted central lounge with tea and a stale turnover from the automated cafe. Boris inhaled his turnover. Boris wrapped his big hand around her arm, stopping her in place. Look attcha.
Mara glared Dreamin - You And Me (5) - Dreamin (Vinyl) at him, her rage shoving her from behind and yammering in her ears. But, she willed herself to stand still, to take a deep breath instead of scream.
Boris Dreamin - You And Me (5) - Dreamin (Vinyl) been braced for a fight. He eyed her warily. The Queen crawled in, her movements stiff and jerky. She curled up on her side, arm tucked under her head, and focused on her breathing. She refused to let go of the power burning through her. It felt too righteous, too pure. But, calming her breath might damp it enough to let her rest. And she had to rest to make it through the next few days. Still, it was a long time before sleep took her. The car hummed along the narrow highway, bloody red grass whispering to her in the dark.
It turned off at the first gravel road and trundled through farmland lit only by the stars. The headlights flashed over a broken down farmstead, and the car turned into the overgrown drive. Ahead, a big Sweet Maple sprouted out of the collapsed farm house, its leaves blazing cherry red in the wavering light.
The car bumped over deep ruts and came to a rest on the far side of the ruin where a stand of volunteer maples hid it from the road. Dusky Every little reaction, every passing sigh I could turn mountains into dust Where would that leave us?
Clairvoyant How come life was a bitch? Are you coming for me, morning? You Might Already Know Low but On Sure Huge fly Flew around the room a few too many times Doing what we can to survive Are you absolutely sure? Several Stations Well, you were wrong. Millionfish Not an Exit Looking out my passenger window Can you see those cloudy symbols? Hex on the Barn Onstage, bassist Jon Samuels is the only Friendship member who stands up. He is usually swaying back and forth as the songs bear down, pulling together and apart.
The record is set both in the country and the city — community, peacefulness, and isolation can all be heard and felt throughout the superb new record. They explore human signs and meaning and are as equally driven by moments of love and connection as they are by our total unknowing, even to those closest to us.
The message is variable. My friend Mark had won tickets from a radio station, but had to bail the day before, so he gave me the tickets and I went alone. This is only tangentially represented in the action of the song.
I love sitting there with a beer and my dog, Roy, and talking with friends, and watching Dreamin - You And Me (5) - Dreamin (Vinyl). There was a guy named Phil who would sit on his porch across the street and sing at the top of his lungs all day long. He reflects on those moments with a sharp wit, keenly observing and eloquently putting Dreamin - You And Me (5) - Dreamin (Vinyl) words the unimportant twists and Dreamin - You And Me (5) - Dreamin (Vinyl) that over time become important — that become our experiences, our relationships, our lives.
