Paradox – Chapter 43

The number of shanties increased as they approached downtown Muncie, or what was left of it. The constant fighting in the city leveled most of the original structures and remaining buildings were either partially collapsed or precariously close to catastrophic failure.The increased number of shanties also meant an increased number of people and more importantly, mundane guards carrying various firearms . Most of the weapons appeared to be in poor condition, a result of prolonged combat and the lack of supplies to maintain the weapons. This was not an army with a supply officer waiting to fulfill...

Great News! New Job Offered and Accepted

Things have been quiet on the Enhanced front the last month, but searching for a job became a full-time job and my mission. After four weeks of applying, writing resumes, rewriting cover letters, filling out recruiter applications, rewriting resumes based on recruiter comments, filling out questionnaires, and a myriad of phone calls and interviews, I was offered a position yesterday and today I accepted.I'm trading the sweet serenity of the sweatpants every day dress code of my remote status for the sights and sounds of a skyscraper office. I'm not thrilled about the commute, but it will be nice...

The Joys of the Real World

I know I'm behind on posting and tonight was going to be a new chapter, but real-life reminded me today that sometimes life is not fair and how we respond to that unfairness is the real test of the man (or woman). The company I worked for has experienced a rough time - decline in revenue, bankruptcy, new owners, restructuring, and a tough financial forecast for the new year. Over the last two months, things have been different and I suspected bad news was coming. And today was that day. After the company meeting, I met with my boss who informed me that today was my last day. So that's it, I'm unemployed....

Paradox – Chapter 42

Scott gently pulled back as Amira suddenly turned right to enter one of the many clothing stores scattered around Broad Ripple. As another shopper opened the door, he could hear the loud thumping of the radio inside and the overpowering smells assaulted his nasal passages.“Are you sure you want to do this?” Amira asked as Scott, hidden beneath dark sunglasses and a hat, hesitated at the front door.Scott hated shopping. His mother employed public relations and marketing specialists that did the shopping for him and his father so they all would compliment each other in and out of uniform....

Paradox – Chapter 41

The drone slipped sideways to the left, hovered, and moved back to the right. It was patient and did not rush the attack even though it had range and mobility over the target in front of it.Scimitar knew the JTF engineers programmed the drone to mimic Archangel’s flying style from training footage of her battles with the other recruits and the mundane agents. She was calculating and decisive in her actions so the drone would be too. The drone started to move right again when Scimitar shifted his balance, but before he could put both feet back on the ground, a bolt of lightning erupted from...

Veteran’s Day

Thank you to my fellow veterans for serving our nation. Matthew 8:5-13 The Faith of the Centurion 5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes....

Paradox – Chapter 40

Trauma exited the car looking up at the rebuilt Hinkle Close-Quarter and Urban Combat Facility. She pushed down the terror that always filled her when she neared the training facility, a reminder from her first experience in the building at the hands of Justice. She relaxed her clenched fists and controlled her breathing before she walked to the front door. She pressed her key card and then looked at the retina scanner before a buzzer sounded and the door unlocked.As she walked in, a familiar face turned away surrounded by the members of Bravo company and others wearing battle dress uniforms...

Paradox – Chapter 39

“You don’t have to leave,” Nightmare said standing in Net’s dorm room. It was the first time she had ever visited his room, noting the lack of a television and computer that everyone else had standard in the room. When you can connect directly to the internet with your mind, you need hardware devices to slow down the process. What Net lacked in electronics, he made up in pictures of women in various states of undress. One of them even looked like Jury.“Yeah, I do,” Net replied sharply. His usual aura of nonchalant faded a week ago when he was accused of and interrogated for Michael...
