Flashback – Ben – Junior High School – One month later

 

I couldn't believe it! The school didn't blow up, it didn't even catch on fire… I was defeated!!! The only thing that happened was we had to stand outside in the freezing cold while incompetent deputies investigated things. Shoot! What I did should have destroyed the school but all it did was get the deputies involved. Thank God they liked me (unlike the attitude of Stern Vern the school principal).

 

I walked up to John (one of the deputies) and asked, "What the heck is going on?"

 

He looked at me, smiled and answered, "It looks like someone tried, but failed, to blow up the school. We are here to control the current situation until the FBI task force arrives."

 

Darn, I might have really messed up! I continued, "Are you sure you need to call in the FBI?"

 

John answered, "You bet we do! This is serious damn business. The person that tried to blow up the school could have killed hundreds if not all the students."

 

I tried to plant some doubt, "But what if it was one of the students that just played a prank?"

 

He shook his head, "It's out of our hands. Whoever did this will surely be caught."

 

Heck, that was all I needed to hear!!!

 

I watched as they dragged drunken Erv outside - he didn't even have a coat.

 

I ran over, handed him mine and said, "Keep warm until they let us back inside." I was used to being cold and even though I shivered, it didn't much matter to me…

 

Flashback – Major M – Undisclosed base

 

I got back to my office, logged onto my computer, opened up the Word document and son-of-a-bitch! Every place where Sgt. Reynold's name should have been had been replaced with mine! No wonder the Old Man reacted like he did and ordered what he did! This was the final straw, I grabbed the damn computer, picked it up and slammed it on the floor. It shattered…

 

Flashback – Jens

 

Shoot, I just lost my connection to Ben's nasty Major's computer. I'm not sure what happened. Oh well, tomorrow is another day for another targeted attack against the Major. I headed off to bed to thinking about Ben and dreaming about when we would share a bed. Mmmmm now that was a nice thought and a very special area began to get warm…

 

 

Flashback – General Glen – Undisclosed base

 

I still couldn't believe that the Major took the blame for the serious fuck up with the Sgts. in Russia - that just wasn't like him. Normally he was as slippery as an eel! It didn't matter since I already had the report in hand to provide the proof if required. And especially as his ass was headed to Russia to fix his damn mess.

 

I secretly hoped that the damn Sgt. Blaine either died or fucked up enough to get his ass thrown out of the Marines. Oh well, it was time for a different battle, it was time to head home.

 

Flashback – Jack – In the hospital

 

The three of us entered postop recovery: Myself, Masha and Tatiana. I took one look at Banzai and he looked like death warmed over… No, he looked even worse than that.

 

As we walked to his bedside, I looked at him and tears slipped down my face. How in the hell could I ever make this up to him? I wasn't there and now he had one foot in the grave and the other foot on a banana peel.

 

Even if he lived through it, how would he handle being blind and being a cripple? Masha helped me to a chair, I sat down, held his hand and shook my head. I really fucked up and I hoped I wasn't looking at the dying breaths of a truly heroic man. But then knowing Banzai, he would prefer death to being a blind cripple. Then I was amazed by what Tatiana did…

 

Flashback – Tatiana – In the hospital

 

I looked at this man that I hardly knew, this man that sacrificed his body and possibly his life for others. It touched me because that is the sacrifice that nurses see every day. I looked at his partner as tears fell down his face. For a man to openly cry for another man was true devotion! I looked at my boss Masha and I could tell she finally fell in love – yes, she was in love with Jack. I wondered how she would justify this to our bosses: They reacted poorly when we fell in love.

 

Then I examined my own heart and yes I knew, somehow and in some inexplicable way, I myself had very deep and strong feelings for this damaged man – no this damaged heroic man. There was only one thing to do. I let down the side rail, crawled into the bed with him, pressed myself against his body and began again to pray….

 

Flashback – Mira and Ira – in Israel

 

Our nunnery costumes performed admirably and provided us safe passage from our house of respite. However, as we perambulated around a corner, we were beset by a large contingent of street hooligans. Suddenly our nunnery costumes became a hindrance.

 

They vocalized toward us like a group of baboons.

 

Safia worried aloud, "I think we are in trouble."

 

Ira replied, "No, I believe these hooligans are preparing to…"

 

I finished, "receive a proper education in genteel behavior."

 

Ira ordered, "Katanas for silence."

 

The hooligan's charged toward us but instead futilely impacted upon the cold steel of our Katanas.

 

After eight of them succumbed to our ministrations, the others departed haste of post like a canine splashed by heated water…
