The unwanted gift part 5 a hub series
On Samco's island it was time for business. Micky short for Michelle was outstandingly calm for a first time blinker. When asked why she simply said I have seen stranger things. When Samco asked for more detail she declined saying only the her position with the CIA had taken her to some strange predicaments.
Micky said Samco here is the plan I will take you to New York ,pick up a disposibale cell phone, and you check your contacts at the CIA . See what you can find out about Pilipsky. Tom you take a note pad and start writing any thing you can remember about him. You were his assistant for some time maybe you can recall something that the records wont tell us. Think of any place he might go to hide if he were able.
I have an idea of my own to check out.
Samco dropped Micky off in New York purchased a pay as you go phone and arranged a place to meet in three hours. Then off to see agent Bob.
Bob's first question was as Samco predicted where are your friends? They are someplace safe until this is over. Why? I wanted to debrief them said Bob maybe get some info. How about the guy at Tom's place. He was dead when I got there. Small caliber to the forehead.
How are these people able to know whats going on so fast said Samco? I am working on that. Someone wants you out of this. No kidding said Samco. In samco's head thoughts were racing. How could the shooter know where to find me? How did they know I was with Tom? How did they know when I was in Philipsky's office? It did not make sense but he was forming an idea.
Bob was in too much of a hurry to meet with his friends.That was making him nervous.
I need to see your friends as soon as possible said Bob. Samco had a sudden idea. Where I don't want them in danger. It's not their fault they got into this. Remember the bunker in Nevada said Bob?
Yes." Meet me there in the morning with them its secluded and safe". Ok Said Samco see you at nine a.m.
Back to the island. Did you remember any thing that might hep Tom? Not really He was a good boss we had lunch a few times and I always liked him but we were not that close.
Samco retrieved Micky and She too had hit a dead-end. Someone with very high clearance wants this guy not to be found she said. He started working on an over unity power generator and found something that impressed somebody. He was scooped up and sent to Unity Think Tank. After that the information just stops. the buzz is he did it he built one. He was making some noise about going public. He felt the thing should be available to every one. I think who ever was funding him felt different about it. Finding out who that funding came from got me in trouble with my boss. It was suggested that I drop it and come in.No said Samco please stay here something is not right.
Bob wants to meet us at nine a.m. you two get some sleep I want to check something out.
Samco had been up all night thinking. Something was not right with this case. He blinked in to the bunker at five a.m. Just in time to see Bob leaving. What is he up to he wondered.After a short wait he started looking around something was just not right.
All things change
Samco was not a spy one year ago he was driving a truck. The nano bots increased his IQ but nothing could replace experience. Nine a.m. came all too soon he was tired from only a one hour cat nap. After a quick blink to his favorite deli for coffee and muffins for him self and his new friends they prepared to go.
They arrived at the bunker at 8:55 am and waited for Bob. After escorting them into a solid room Bob started to talk. He produced a weapon." Samco he said don't try to blink out I installed an electromagnetic device that will prevent that". Samco had a panicked look on his face as he tried to blink with no effect. Why he asked ? You are to close I am sorry I like working with you but you have become a liability to me. With that he opened the door and stepped through. Ten feet down the hall Bob was in denial as Samco appeared in front of him with the forty-five belonging to the gunman from Tom's apartment . None the less he was well-trained and fast. He pulled his side arm and fired into the ceiling as Tom's forty-five slug passed through his lower right side . How he managed to ask Samco.
Samco had searched the abandoned bunker finding the device planted by Bob. It was new and looked out-of-place in the old building. He had cut the power cable to it.
Why Samco asked . Money of course I have a buyer lined up. I could have retired in comfort. What about Philipsky ? Been dead for a few days . I tried not to involve you but my bosses know about you even though they don't know who you are. They insisted.
What about the guy at Tom's place? I had to remove him and make it look like I found him that way.
No matter your as dead as me now said Bob with that he dropped the small detonator he had in his hand .
Samco blinked into the bunker at a dead run trying to reach his friends as he saw the wall behind them disintegrate. He had his hands on both already blinking out.
On the island Samco was a little beat up from the explosion. He had blinked them out so they missed most of the damage however both were mortally wounded. As he bent over his new friends with tears in his eyes he had a choice he could walk away. This time he would be careful not to bring on attention. No one knew he was alive it could be a clean break a chance at a more normal life.
He said to the twins I am so sorry I never meant to bring you into this. You're the first friends I have had in a long time.
This being said he produced a small syringe from his pocket pulled 4 cc's of blood from his arm and injected 2 cc's into each of his friends. The nano bots would start to reproduce and rebuild their damaged bodies at once they would also take care of any problems with a miss match of blood type.
Samco then collapsed in tears he had no other choice his new friends now also had the unwanted gift.
