Flashback – Masha, Gladys and Tanya – During Lunch


We were anticipating a great lunch when I asked, "Have any of you tried edamame?"


Both Gladys and Tanya gave me a confused look and Gladys asked, "What is edamame?"


I replied, "It is soybean pods which have been cooked. They are very good and are usually eaten as an appetizer."


Gladys attracted the attention of the waiter and asked, "Do you serve edamame?"


He smiled and replied, "Of course. It's very popular and because of the estrogen soybeans add to your diet we highly recommend it, but only for women."


Gladys requested, "Please bring us a serving."


I asked, "Do you have any dipping sauces for them?"


The waiter replied, "Yes we do. Why don't I bring you a sampling of all of them?"


I agreed, "That would be wonderful."


He asked, "Are you ready to order?"


We all gave him our orders and he offered, "I will bring the edamame out first so that you can snack on it while you wait for your meals."


He left and Tanya remarked, "He certainly is a good waiter."


Flashback – Banzai – The continuing saga


Lieutenant George apologized, "Sgt. Blaine I'm sorry."


In keeping with my plan, I nipped it in the bud, "Don't think you're getting out of this that easily."


He whined, "Sgt. Blaine don't be unreasonable."


I held up my hand and said, "I'm going to get this looked at." He had popped me in the mouth and it was bleeding.


As I began to leave, he grabbed my arm and I yelled, "Help! Lieutenant George is assaulting me."


Some of the troops arrived. They looked at us and some of the men said, "We're fucking tired of him, let's kill his ass – I can't believe he attacked Banzai - look his mouth is bleeding."


I stopped them when I ordered, "Men, don't retaliate."


Jack ran into the room took a look at me and said, "Banzai, you let Lieutenant George do that to you?"


I winked at him and replied, "That's right Lieutenant George hit me for no reason at all."


Lieutenant George tried to defend himself, "Sgt. Blaine aggravated me."


Jack laughed and said, "Sir, you should be able to control your feelings better than that. After all you're an officer."


I asked, "Jack, help me get to the doctors to have them take care of my mouth."


Lieutenant George whimpered, "You're not going to leave me alone with the men, are you? They want to kill me."


Jack reinforced my order, "Men don't kill Lieutenant George, he's not worth it. Now Banzai, let's get a doctor to look at your mouth."


Lieutenant George attempted an order, "Sgt. Blaine, I order you to stay here."


Jack empathically countered, "Sir, we are not going to follow that order."


Jack took me out into the hallway and then said, "Damn Banzai, your mouth is a mess."


I smile at him and suggested, "Not as bad as it's going to be after you hit me."


Jack declared with a little admiration on the side, "You devious bastard!"


I braced myself and said, "Okay Jack, give me some of your best shots."


Jack popped me in the mouth, then I teased, "Damn my grandmother hit harder than that."


Jack hit me again and this one really hurt.


We arrive in the emergency room where the doctor looked at me and asked, "Sgt. who have you been fighting this time."


Jack informed him, "Lieutenant George hit Banzai in the mouth."


The doctor swore, "That stupid bastard!"


He touched my mouth, I grimaced and swore, "Damn that hurts!"


The doctor said, "Sgt. we might want to send you to the BoO to have a dentist check your teeth. I would hate to have you lose them from this."


Jack asked, "Doctor, will you please document this?"


He replied, "Of course I will. I still can't believe that Lieutenant George was stupid enough to hit you."


Jack asked, "Doctor, will you arrange for the transport to the BoO?"


He replied, "I certainly will but let me finish with the examination and documentation first."


Flashback – Jennifer – Studying


I continued trying the spells on Grandmother and she continued the praise. I wanted to try one on Daddy so I asked, "Grandmother, if I try a spell on Daddy how will I know it works?"


Grandmother replied, "Jennifer, perhaps you're right to be cautious and you shouldn't try anything on Glen."


So I continued practicing on Grandmother when she said, "Jennifer, Daniela is coming so I need to go."


She disappeared as Daniela knocked on my door. I waved my hands so the book disappeared then I answered the door.


Flashback – Ira and Mira – continuing


Mira fought to rise up but I held her down and ordered, "Mira, let me tend to your wound."


Mira complained, "Ira, let me arise so we can continue the chase of Kostia."


I maintained the restraint of her person and announced, "We will continue our pursuit of our nemesis after we have staunched you bleeding."


Flashback – Todd – On the mission


I finally saw a small town ahead of me and noted the arrival at my tactical destination.
