Power Surge Ch 8I made my way back down the hall to Greg’s room and closed the door tightly behind me. Inside, Shelly was still sitting and looking over him.
“Hey.” She gave me a smile before returning to her vigil.
I sat down on the bed and patted Greg’s foot. “Any change?”
She shook her head. “You?”
"No." I then proceeded to tell her about the talk with Wanika. Shelly must’ve got the same idea I did, and no sooner did I finish my story did she jump up and go for the closet.
“Where are you going?” I asked.
“His pearl is in the closet with his stuff... it must be here, the FBI agent outside said it was...” The clothes, denim jumpsuit included, were hanging from the rack. Shelly dug through the closet and found the tub with Greg’s stuff in a plastic bag. His wallet, house keys, and watch were all there. In a seperate bag, sealed with duct tape, his pearl was
Power Surge Ch 7We rode in the van behind the ambulance, and soon were at Fairview Southdale hospital.
The driver of the van tossed several towels towards Shelly and me. "Dry off as best you can. Did you find her shoes?"
"I have them," Shelly answered. "You don't have to treat me like a piece of cargo!"
"And if Greg were here, he'd zap the bejesus out of you for even saying that, buddy!" I had to be the strong one, remember?
"Okay, okay..." the driver held up his hands in defense. "Of course, I meant did you find your shoes... look. Just... just dry off and get your legs back, okay? We don't want any photos of mermaids on the internet today."
"There's tons of them!" Shelly gasped, still tearing up.
"I meant if you-"
"Just shut up and guard the door! We'll be out in a moment." I wanted to punch the guy, but I also knew that it still wasn't worth getting too upset. I had to keep human too, especially if I was going to be able to see if Greg was ok
Power Surge Ch 6I'll take over for Greg for awhile. Hey. I never write in his journal, but this time... well, considering the circumstances, I'll offer up a favor and I'll tell you what happened to me. I'm Michelle, by the way.
I'm writing for Greg just this once. I'm not sure I like the idea of putting everything about Summer into the journal, but I said I would. And I am a girl who stands by her friends, especially after they've done so much for me.
We'll start during the exhibition dealie. I was Summer, my automotive alter ego, driving in circles and doing the best show I could to entertain the crowd. There must've been five, six thousand people in attendance, not to mention a number of media trucks and such. If I wasn't so nervous from what I was supposed to do with the orders from the FBI, I surely would've been affected by stage fright! So much so, that had I not already been Summer... I can feel my fingers curling into tires just thinking
Book Two Back CoverWhen darkness plauges the landscape, the pure of heart shall right the course of Gaia.
In the kingdom of Xavier, there exists a legend of the mythical guardians known as Unicorns. These eternal equines once roamed the Everbloom Forest, long before the nation of men rose to clear the land and become home to the Citadel of Peace.
When an aged wanderer comes to the apothecary of Janna Bernson and her father Kabal in search of an enchanted wizard’s herb known as the Amaris Root, a fabled treasure known to bestow eternal life to one who unlocks its secrets. But when a unicorn brings warnings of ancient murders and evils, what darkness will come to light?
Power Surge Ch 5Finally, three o'clock rolled around and it was time to head out to Bloomington. Per the FBI agent's orders, Shelly and I drove Michelle to the former furniture store, which was a former grocery store, in South Bloomington. It was a short distance from the old football stadium where I could already see some people had gathered.
"Don't look over there, please. Come inside, quickly." Agent Wright had come outside as soon as we parked. "You're early."
"I didn't want to risk being late," I replied as I hit the button for the lock. "What's the plan?"
"Come inside and I'll tell you."
We did so, coming inside the big empty room that was devoid of shelving and merchandise. In fact, it was almost completely empty - they had blacked out windows along the front side of the building, leaving adequate room for cars and people to traverse. In the southeast corner, there were carts filled with clothing and costumes, most of them denim jumpsuits, like t
Power Surge Ch 4Gathering around the dining room, we were caught unaware as Michelle came back with the FBI agent.
"Greetings. Miss Starsetter, Mr. Claxion," the agent addressed us.
I waved with my egg sandwich. "Hiya."
"I was starting to wonder when the FBI might show up." Shelly tossed her spoon into her cereal.
Michelle took a seat next to me. "What are my options, Agent Wright?"
"First off, let me assure you that the FBI stands by your action to save the child, Miss Peyton. Had you not been there, a seemingly random act would've caused the severe injury, perhaps even death or paraylisis, of an innocent child." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small I-pad micro. "You may be interested in this footage from a few moments before your appearance as Summer."
The three of us crowded around as he started the video from a MN-Dot traffic camera. From the vantage point looking north into the distance I could see the big arches of the twin river brid
