John Gilbride Jr.-murdered on September 7, 2002 in Maple Shade, New Jersey- “He's been raised by MOVE his whole life. I hope when he gets older, he'll ask questions. I want him to know that his father fought for him.”

The execution-style murder of former MOVE member, 34 year old John Gilbride Jr., in Maple Shade, New Jersey on September 27, 2002 remains unsolved. MOVE is a black liberation group founded in 1972 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by John Africa (born Vincent Leaphart) and Donald Glassey, a social worker student from the University of Pennsylvania. In a 2018 Guardian article about the group, MOVE's political views were described as "a strange fusion of black power and flower power which melded the revolutionary ideology of the Black Panthers with the nature- and animal-loving communalism of 1960s hippies.” John’s father, Jack, believes the organization has “blood on its hands” and had his son followed after he fled the movement. Alberta Africa (now Wonderlin), John’s ex-wife and the ex-wife of MOVE founder John Africa, claims that John is alive and “forgoing any contact with the son he was fighting for in court for a life of seclusion, courtesy of the U.S. government” surmising “maybe he went off the deep end or something and is hiding somewhere….he seemed like he was deeply involved in the government.” Jack stated that it is hurtful Alberta still makes those kinds of statements since he identified his son's body, attended his funeral, and buried his cremated remains saying he “could only wish…she knows more than anyone else that it isn't true." According to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s office, the case is still an open investigation.
John, a baggage supervisor for U.S. Airways, was found dead inside his Ford Crown Victoria at 12:08 a.m. outside the Ryan's Run apartment complex in Maple Shade, New Jersey. The killer fired multiple bullets into John’s head and chest at close range from an automatic weapon after which the individual then disappeared into the highways adjacent to the apartment complex leaving behind John’s personal belongings. Police believe the killer knew his schedule because “they were there at the perfect time” noting they shot him just as he was coming home from work late at night and “the purpose was to take his life, nothing else.” John was scheduled to have his first unsupervised visit with his 6- year old son Zackary later the next day-a visit that Jack claims Alberta and other MOVE members had threatened to stop. After a Philadelphia judge decided that John should have unsupervised time with Zackary, MOVE vowed to fight the order and boarded up windows at its Philadelphia headquarters. They also held a rally at the Cherry Hill municipal building protesting the custody order saying the judge’s order was “an attempt to persecute the group and that Cherry Hill police were helping.” John had mentioned to his father that he felt his life was at risk and he knew “he was taking a big gamble.” Before Alberta married John, she was the widow of John Africa, founder and leader of the controversial radical group MOVE. John Africa and 5 other adults and 5 children died in May 1985 when Philadelphia police dropped a bomb on MOVE’s Osage Avenue rowhouse headquarters after a day-long standoff. Given the group's turbulent history, Alberta said police would have arrested MOVE members by now for John’s death if they had evidence saying “we are not murderers.”
John first learned about MOVE as a student at Temple University in the late 1980s and later joined the organization. During one of John's visits from college, Jack suspected John was under a "new influence" as during a drive around the neighborhood, John mused "this is nothing...these big houses, this money, it doesn't mean anything; this surprised Jack as John's "goal in life had always been to become a millionaire and drive a Cadillac." In 1991, John announced he was going to live in MOVE's headquarters and seeing that they could nothing to dissuade him, Jack decided to "keep communication open and maintain whatever relationship John would allow them" using an 800 number to keep in contact. In the fall of 1992, John married Alberta, who was twice his age, against his family's wishes; the family, nonetheless, felt the wedding should be celebrated so they all went to dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Philadelphia. Jack noted that "at no time did we sympathize with MOVE but in order to have a relationship with John, we did what we had to do."
The name of the group (MOVE) is not an acronym and was chosen by John Africa “to say what they intended to do” as in "everything that's alive moves…if it didn't, it would be stagnant, dead"; as an example, when members greet each other they say "on the MOVE.". The group combined revolutionary ideology with animal rights and “advocated a return to a hunter-gatherer society” based on vegetarianism while remaining “opposed to science, medicine, and technology.” John’s followers changed their surnames to Africa to “show reverence to what they regarded as their mother continent.” John Africa and MOVE members lived in a communal house in the Powelton Village section of West Philadelphia. As activists, they staged bullhorn-amplified, profanity-laced demonstrations outside their homes against institutions that they opposed, such as zoos, circuses, “Three Mile Island”, “puppy mills” and police brutality. MOVE made compost piles of garbage and human waste in their yards which attracted rats and cockroaches that they refused to kill as they "considered it morally wrong to kill the vermin with pest control.” MOVE activities were scrutinized by law enforcement particularly under the administration of Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo, a former police commissioner known for hard stance against activist groups. Mayor Rizzo threatened in 1978 to dispatch his Police Department to MOVE's Powelton Village headquarters "to drag 'em out by the back of their necks."
In 1978, complaints from neighbors about "profanity-laced tirades, arms stockpiling, garbage piled in the yard, and naked children" led to a standoff with members of the group who had not vacated their rowhouse headquarters; a resulting shootout took the life of a police officer and put nine MOVE members in prison for life. In 1981, MOVE relocated to a row house at 6221 Osage Avenue in the Cobbs Creek area of West Philadelphia. Neighbors again complained to the city about trash around their building, confrontations, and the obscene political messages by bullhorn. In 1985, the police obtained arrest warrants in 1985 charging four MOVE occupants with crimes including parole violations, contempt of court, illegal possession of firearms, and making terrorist threats; by now, Mayor Wilson Goode and police commissioner Gregore J. Sambor had classified the group as a terrorist organization. Residents of the area were evacuated from the neighborhood and told to return after 24 hours.
On Monday, May 13, 1985, nearly five hundred police officers attempted to clear the building and execute the arrest warrants. Water and electricity were shut off in order to force MOVE members out of the house and Commissioner Sambor exhorted them to come out stating "Attention MOVE: This is America. You have to abide by the laws of the United States." When the MOVE members did not respond, the police decided to forcibly remove the members from the house. There was an armed standoff with police who lobbed tear gas canisters at the building. The MOVE members fired at them, and a gunfight with semi-automatic and automatic firearms ensued. Police went through over ten thousand rounds of ammunition when Commissioner Sambor decided the rowhouse could be bombed. From a Pennsylvania State Police helicopter, Philadelphia Police Department Lt. Frank Powell dropped two one-pound bombs made of FBI-supplied Tovex, a dynamite substitute, which targeted a fortified, bunker-like cubicle on the roof of the house. The resulting explosions ignited a fire from fuel for a gasoline-powered generator stored in the rooftop bunker. The fire spread and eventually destroyed 61 nearby houses. Officials said they feared that MOVE would shoot at the firefighters so they were held back. John Africa and 5 other adults and 5 children died. There were only two survivors; a child, Birdie Africa and an adult woman, Ramona Africa.
John Gilbride eventually left the movement and filed for divorce from Alberta in 1999 which led to years of heated court battles over custody of Zackary; John also filed for bankruptcy. John had gone deep into debt paying for in-vitro fertility treatments as they were desperately trying to have a child. John had also grown frustrated with "MOVE's meddling in his marriage" which "staged hours-long interventions" whenever the couple argued. According to Jack, the timing of the murder and the custody dispute is “more than a coincidence.” Philadelphia Police Captain William Fisher, the head of the department’s civil rights division who knows the MOVE leaders well, stated that John’s murder “seemed like a textbook mob hit” and John had a gambling problem and other enemies as well; Jack dismisses Captain Fisher’s claims saying he did a "disservice to the investigation" and “was simply trying to ease the department’s relationship with MOVE”. Captain Fisher continues to doubt that MOVE was involved saying Jack wants to think that “MOVE did it because it solves his problem…I’m a parent too, and it’s an emotional thing.” He believes a professional gunman could have known of John’s problems with MOVE and could have timed the murder accordingly saying if MOVE was involved, they would not have “outsourced the job to someone outside their organization.” He acknowledges “there was a lot of rhetoric and everything else, but keep it in perspective, it's a child custody thing” saying MOVE's members "defend themselves when needed but do not go out and kill people." Captain Fisher suggested a trip to Las Vegas a few days before his death needed to be looked into further; Jack avers John went to Las Vegas for an Earth, Wind, and Fire concert. John also had a "secret..and brief" second marriage to Rosario Bienvenida Arias-a 24-year-old casino dealer from the Dominican Republic. They married in Maryland on April 25, 2002, but, according to the annulment initiated by John May 19,2002, "she used him and then fled the country." The marriage had not been "nullified by the time John died, so as his widow, Rosario-not Zack-collected death benefits."
Others disagree such as former MOVE supporter Tony Allen who runs an anti-MOVE blog; he believes MOVE would never have put someone in their closest family circles at risk by killing John and would have given that task to a supporter saying “my hope is that there's people in and about MOVE whose consciences will eat away at them." Burlington County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi mentioned that MOVE members had been questioned in the investigation but did not comment further. In 2012 the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that John had told friends and family that he had recorded incriminating evidence in a notebook as "security against a hit" by MOVE. John said he had placed the notebook inside a locker for safekeeping. Jack confirmed one of John’s coworkers had contacted him and he tried to get police to search the locker but to no avail. At the time, Prosecutor Bernardi had no comment when pressed on the topic. It is unclear if the locker was ever searched.
In a 2009 news article, Jack mentioned that he continues to speak with investigators every three weeks but acknowledged "they get tired of telling me there's nothing new." Zackary, at the time 13 years old, was “a happy home-schooled teen, active in swimming and fencing.” In the interview, Alberta admitted that her son continues to miss his father recalling how they “found a picture of his dad, and he just fell into me..he's a big boy, but he was in tears. She also says "the tears she cried for John were real in 2002" and she continues to feels his absence noting that she remarried after John’s death, “not out of love, but to give her son a stable home.”
Jack said “his life has been anything but stable” since his son's death. His wife, Fran, died of cancer two years after his son was killed, and he speaks to Zack only once every three to six months. He knows that “wishing his son were still alive is pointless” so he focuses on resolving the case so Zack can come back into his life saying “he's been raised by MOVE his whole life. I hope when he gets older, he'll ask questions. I want him to know that his father fought for him."
Anyone with information about John’s murder can contact the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office at 609-265- 7113.
Questions:
Do we know more about John's gambling debts and other enemies he supposedly had? There is much discussion on the MOVE angle but I really couldn't find much information on any other theories besides the statement made by Captain Fisher.
Was John's locker ever searched?

MOVE has been “an anomaly in Philadelphia ever since it was founded, in the mid-1970s, by a white graduate student who became enthralled with the musings of a local black handyman who took the name John Africa and held beliefs ranging from vegetarianism to odd bathing rituals to preparation for worldwide racial conflict.” Several city officials were reprimanded in an investigation which called “dropping a bomb on an occupied row house…unconscionable” but none were criminally charged for the bombing. The 61 destroyed homes were rebuilt with government funds ($35 milion) but the houses were eventually condemned since a potential carbon monoxide leak was found in the heating systems. In 2000, the city paid again to buy out the residents and move them.
Ramona Africa, the only adult who came out of the house fire alive (along with 13-year old Birdie Africa), served seven years in prison for her role in the confrontation. As she stood outside MOVE's current house in 2013, she dismissed the notion that the home had code violations stating “they say it is a fire hazard but the only fire MOVE has ever been involved with is the one the city of Philadelphia set on May 13, 1985."

[RF] Pale in Comparison

Winter had sucked all the color out of the world.
The prairie in the glory of midsummer had been a surge of green, summer winds sending pulses through the tall grass, causing it to wave like an underwater kelp forest in a strong current. Now, however, it had relinquished its blooming majesty, its former radiance dulled to straw the color of a deerhide. The flowerheads were stripped of their colorful identities, appearing like sepia photographs of themselves; the ghosts of summer past. The sweetclover, which had extended from one horizon to the other back in June, covering the prairie in a blanket of gold, was now skeletonized, its broken-off stems rolling like tumbleweeds in the winter gales.
Trevor was over it. Another South Dakota winter, another four months until the snows would cease and the ice would melt in the creek. In March and April, the spring blizzards would bury the world and on the subsequent sunny days, the combination of blue sky and white land would be startling, like finding oneself living in the center of a bicolored flag.
But for now, a capricious midwinter thaw had left snowdrifts only in the prairie draws, on the north-facing ridges, in the shadows of the ponderosas that speckled the hills. And around the trailer, mud. In a few nights, a deep freeze would turn the sides of the tire ruts into knife edges, testing the suspension of any vehicle that took the approach too fast. Still, that was better than the loamy mud, which could imprison even a 4x4 until freezing cold or drying winds finally freed it.
The view from the front porch could be gorgeous. Back in July, when the church group from Virginia had constructed a wheelchair ramp for the trailer, the evening sun had set the prairie on fire, its light reflected by a thunderstorm hanging in the sky as if by a puppeteer’s strings. “God almighty,” the youth pastor had exclaimed. But now, grays and browns mingled in a decidedly drab palette. Over at the little bird feeder, the goldfinches were no longer yellow-and-black exclamation points, but had acquiesced to dullness, dressed for a time of year when vibrant color seemed to be outlawed by some unseen authority.
Trevor stared at the expanse of mud that spooled out from in front of the trailer and unwound into a ribbon that led over the hill toward the old sundance ground and, eventually, the paved road. He wondered if he would get out today. Always a calculation this time of year. Driving on the muddy channel that was his approach was out of the question; he would set a course across the grass, which would provide enough barrier to keep his tires from sinking in again. Two-tracks radiating out onto the prairie showed how many times he and his family had taken this course of action since the last snow.
It felt ironic that their approach took them by far the long way around – heading north to go south; harder than it needed to be, like so much of life around here. But the way south was blocked by Roanhorse Creek. This wasn’t all bad; the creek provided nice wading in the summer and water for the horses for most of the year. It also gave rise to the only trees on the property, although the cottonwoods whose leaves whispered in the summer breezes now stood dumb and impassive, and resembled skeletal wraiths at nighttime.
A horse would make it, of course. He could saddle up the buckskin, ride cross-country and be in town in twenty minutes. But that would be silly…he snorted at the ludicrousness of this thought. First of all, he had to go way beyond town today. And even if he were just going to his old job at the tribal building, was he supposed to just hitch it up outside for the day? Tie its reins to one of the smokers’ benches by the entrance? What was this, 1895? No, better not to risk TȟatéZi getting stolen or having some gang sign spraypainted on it or some shit. Besides, he needed to pull into his job interview looking halfway decent, not spattered with mud and smelling like horse sweat.
Trevor regarded his truck, sitting smack in the middle of the sloppy mess. Fuck, he thought.
Still, he didn’t really have a choice today. No job interview, no job. No job, no funds. Another calculation, but this one was straightforward. He went back into the trailer and made his way to his bedroom in the back, passing his brothers in the living room. One was sleeping on the couch and the other was crashed out in the recliner, oblivious to the flickering hearth of the muted TV. Let ‘em sleep today, Trevor thought.
In the bedroom, he stepped across piles of clothes – some clean, some dirty – and over the miscellany of his life; a pile of old DVDs, a defunct gaming console, a canister of Bugler and squares of broadcloth for the tobacco ties he was supposed to make for ceremony, a scattering of empty Mountain Dew cans, a 24-pack of ramen, a basketball.
He hunted around in his closet for the dressy clothes that he knew were there. He had worn them once, on the day of his high school graduation, three years before. And there they were; a purple button-down shirt, a solid black tie, and black chinos. Further rummaging found him a pair of brown loafers and a tan braided belt. He would look sharp for this interview – couldn’t hurt.
Trevor took a quick shower. The hot water always took forever to come and once it did, didn’t last long. He got dressed hurriedly, glad the tie that had come as a set with the shirt was a clip-on, and ran a comb through his hair. It wasn’t long enough to do much with other than backcomb it a little with some hair gel, but he figured that looked better than not. He considered putting in big stud earrings to look extra fly, but decided again it; might not be the right look for the occasion.
Now fully dressed and ready, Trevor took stock of his appearance. His summer tan was long gone and his skin was as pale as the white kids he had met during his one semester of college. The same change of season that had desaturated the prairie and garbed the birds in dull colors had undone all those days spent out in the badlands sun – working with the horses, swimming at the dam, helping keep fire at sundance. Too many French fur traders in his lineage. He recalled the book that his eighth grade teacher had assigned them – Part-time Indian or something – and thought, Yup, that’s me. Indian in the summer and wašiču in the winter, like changing plumage.
Trevor envied his brothers their melanin. He had learned that word in one of his college classes and now thought of it nearly every day. Travis was a rich brown complexion even in the dark days of midwinter. Trenton was in between the two but had jet-black Lakota hair and definitely looked “ethnic,” enough to be followed around stores in the border towns. Trevor knew it was his privilege to be exempt from such treatment, but it bugged him nonetheless. He hadn’t asked to be light-skinned. His brothers called him žiží – a reference to his tawny hair. They had gotten into scraps over this, and Trevor even bloodied Travis’ nose in one such altercation. Once one of them had even called Trevor a “half-breed” but Trevor retorted with “Fuck you, boy, you got the same blood as me. Fuckin’ dumbass.” This seemed to put the issue to rest.
Trevor’s brief stint at college had been at an out-of-state school, which now struck him as an ill-advised decision. At least South Dakotans had some experience with Natives. Even the East River kids had at least crossed paths with one at some point, and didn’t think of Indians as something from the pages of a dime novel. Trevor was the first Native in many years – maybe ever – to attend the small-town liberal arts college in a neighboring state. He thought the fact that the college was reasonably selective would mean that the students were smart enough not to ask dumb questions. He was wrong.
The queries were predictable enough, clichéd even; Are you really Indian? (Yes) Do you speak your language? (No) Did you get in because you’re Indian? (Who knows? I’m pretty smart and got good grades.) Does the college have admissions quotas for Indians? (If it did, you’d think more would go here.) What’s it like on the reservation? (I don’t know; different.) Do you prefer “Native American”? (I find the question annoying, to be honest.) Do you like Leslie Marmon Silko? (Who?) Have you seen Dances with Wolves? (Some of it.) Do you know a guy from Pine Ridge named Verdell? He used to work with my dad. (Maybe) His last name was something Horse. Running Horse? (No)
Fielding these questions was exhausting and added another layer of weariness and alienation to his college experience.
He found himself having to answer such inquiries from his roommate, classmates, professors, his R.A…Sometimes they were cloaked in well-meaning concern (I bet you get tired of all these questions, huh?) but they were always there. Most evenings, Trevor would retreat to his room and call his mom. His roommate, Skyler, a cross-country runner who was handsome in an unspectacular way and who monitored his water intake religiously, was hardly ever around. He seemed to have no trouble making friends in college and reveled in the social opportunities around him.
In his phone calls back home, Trevor found himself experiencing a homesickness that inhabited the pit of his stomach like a hunger pang. He had never been gone from home for that long. Really, his only trip away had been the summer before his senior year, to a weeklong STEM camp for Native kids that one of the state colleges had put on. But that had been with a half dozen other students from his high school. Here he was alone.
The subjects of their conversations would leave Trevor feeling a gravitational pull toward home: Trenton got into a fight at school and got suspended. Travis is drinking again. We had sweat for your auntie because they have to amputate her leg after all. Those dogs were back again. Everett hit $200 at the casino on Tuesday night but of course he put it all back in. They’re having a basketball tournament for that boy who got paralyzed in that wreck. Our hot water heater went out but uncle came and fixed it. They still haven’t found that Two Arrows girl that went missing. Travis wants to go up on the hill this spring – maybe that will get him to quit drinking.
Good news, bad news, mundane news…The latter tugged at him the most. Like many who grew up on Pine Ridge, he had a love-hate relationship with the reservation. It was the home of his people after all, and could be so beautiful (“God’s country,” as it was called by even those who had no time for the white man’s God). But the hardships, the tragedies, the death…it all wore away at your spirit, hardened you. Still, the news of day-to-day life going on in his absence; a school powwow, a bingo tournament, tribal council drama, rumors of a Dairy Queen opening. It made him miss home in an ineffable way.
The last vestige of his indecision evaporated after a particular conversation in the lounge of his dorm. He had been sitting on a beanbag chair, discussing random topics with two friends (at least, he considered them friends, in some ill-defined adolescent way). They had all left a dull party that hadn’t livened up even after a couple of drinks, but still felt heady and obligated to prolong the night a little longer. So, they were shooting the shit, in a garishly-lit common space that smelled of burnt popcorn, and Trevor was feeling rather collegiate. An off-campus party, late-night conversation; weren’t these the trappings of university life that he had seen in teen movies, if a much more prosaic version?
Kayleigh, tipsy off Jäger bombs, started the chain of events that would unravel his college experience with a simple, but pointed question: “How Indian are you, anyway?”
Colton snorted at this comment. “Kay, you can’t just ask that!” But he was clearly more amused than disapproving.
“You mean like my blood quantum or what?” Trevor asked.
“Is that what you guys call it?” said Kay, now playing the innocent party. “I just mean, like, you say you’re Indian, I mean like I know you are, like, I know you are on paper…” The alcohol was causing her to trip over her words but she plowed on. “I mean like, okay, if I were to like, run into you on the street…” Kay was now gesturing expansively, as if the meaning of what she was saying wasn’t explicit from words alone. “Like, I wouldn’t be like, ‘Damn, look at that Indian,’ right? I’d just assume you were a white guy. I mean you know what I mean? Ugh, I’m not making sense.”
She was making perfect sense. Colton looked embarrassed, and for a second, Trevor thought he might shut Kay down. But instead, his inhibition similarly worn down by a few shots of German 70-proof, he followed suit. “I think what Kay’s drunk ass is trying to say is, like, your ancestors are Indians, right, like in the history books. Like Geronimo or whatever. But do you consider yourself one of them? Or are you, like, their descendant?”
Trevor could feel the ball of rage growing within him, a sea urchin radiating spikes in his gut. Stop talking, he thought. Just stop talking.
Colton continued, heedlessly. “Okay, so like I’m Irish but I’m not like Irish Irish, like a leprechaun or some shit. Like my ancestors…”
Trevor stood up, his fists balled. He was now stone-cold sober but his anger was its own intoxicant. “It’s none of your fucking business. It’s none of your business what the fuck I am!” He was shouting; he couldn’t help it. He picked up a half-empty can of PBR and threw it at the wall, slamming the door to the lounge on his way out. The sudsy contents of the can leaked onto the ugly orange dorm carpet, as Kayleigh and Colton sat in stunned silence.
“Jesus,” said Colton finally. “Just trying to ask an honest question.”
After that, Trevor had holed up in his room for a few days, skipping classes and avoiding other students. When he told his mom he was dropping out, she hardly sounded surprised. He knew she would be glad to have him back home; the prodigal son returning. Trevor, the one who had his shit together, who had gone to a STEM camp and was almost salutatorian. He knew she thought that once he got back, he could do what she couldn’t; get Travis on a better path, bring another income to the household, fix what needed to be fixed around the trailer, shoot at the stray dogs when they came around. It would all fall to him. His failure was their blessing; they would lean on him as long as he could stand.
So here we fucking go, he now thought, patting his gel-stiffened hair and giving himself one last hazel-eyed glance in the mirror. Gotta get that bread. His brief stint at the tribal building hadn’t panned out. He was a good worker but wet weather made his road too sloppy to get out easily. Too many latenesses had translated into a pink slip. “Shit man we all got bad roads. Gotta leave earlier,” his boss had said.
So, lesson learned, he was giving himself extra time getting ready for this interview. Really, the lady had just told him to come by “around mid-morning,” so he’d probably be okay. The job was off-rez, down at the county livestock auction and sale barn in one of the closest border towns, “white towns,” as Ridgers called it. It was mostly going to be paperwork – inventory and itemizing and that kind of shit – but it was decent pay and Trevor hoped that he could transition over to working with the animals before long. On most days, he preferred their company to dumbass people.
Grabbing his bag, Trevor stuck the loafers inside with his other miscellany. He would need to wear his cowboy boots across the muddy expanse between the bottom step of the porch and the door to his Blazer so he jammed his feet into them. Outside, he walked gingerly so as not to stain his black slacks with muck. Once in the driver’s seat, he figured he would leave the boots on for the drive, since they were already smearing mud on the floor liner, and in case he got stuck and needed to get out. Trevor knew that the people who worked at the sale barn were as countrified as he was and wouldn’t judge muddy boots under most circumstances, but he also knew that being from Pine Ridge meant he had to put his best foot forward, literally in this case.
Trevor fired up the Blazer, put it in four low, and gunned it. His tires found grip and he jerked along, slimy divots of earth spattering his windows and roof like hail. His windshield wipers left a pasty smear that obscured much of his view, but he practically knew the way by feel. As soon as he could, he bumped up onto the grass, gopher holes and clumps of prairie bluestem jolting his ride, testing what was left of his suspension. When he finally hit the pavement, the smoothness was startling as it always was, like a TV being suddenly muted, like silence after a door slamming.
He cruised through town, passing the gas station, the other gas station, the commod building, the quonset hut, the old BIA headquarters…and turned south into Nebraska. He tried to ignore the persistent squeal under the hood that had gotten worse lately. The overcast sky reflected the dullness of the land – as below, so above – and Trevor alternated between zoning out and counting hawks on telephone poles. A handful of miles south of the border, the vehicle gave a jolt and Trevor felt a temporary loss of control. He hit the brakes and steered toward the shoulder, but the Blazer was suddenly steering like an army tank. Fuck, he whispered.
Once he wrestled Blazer off the road, Trevor got out and popped the hood. He already knew what he would find under the rising steam. “Fucking serpentine belt,” he hissed to the universe. Trevor was good with cars but he didn’t have the tools for this fix. Luckily, he thought, out here in the country, somebody who did would be by soon. Lots of Natives on this road, maybe even a cousin would happen by who could at least give him a ride to town. Trevor thought of calling his dad’s brother Everett on his cell, but figured he’d give it a bit. He hated the thought of owing Uncle Ev anything.
Sure enough, in a few minutes, a gunmetal gray truck passed by slowly, hit a u-turn, and pulled up behind him. Trevor felt a twinge of envy over this late-model Dodge Ram MegaCab with duallies. It had county plates on it, so the cowboy-hatted driver was a local guy, and as he got out, his Carhartt overalls and mud-caked boots identified him as a rancher.
“Trouble?” MegaCab asked, giving Trevor an easy smile.
“Serpentine belt busted,” said Trevor, unconsciously smoothing out his rez accent in favor of a more neutral affectation. Code-switching – another term he had learned at college (by the professor who asked him if he prefers “Native American”).
“No shit, huh?” MegaCab considered this information. “I got nothing for that but I could give you a ride somewhere. You call anyone? Someone coming after you?”
“No,” said Trevor. “I’m trying to get down to the sale barn for a job interview.”
MegaCab looked at Trevor as if for the first time. “Oh ok so that’s why you’re all fancied up. Well, hop in if you don’t mind leaving it here.”
Trevor considered this. He was off the rez so there was less of a chance that the Blazer would end up with busted windows or slashed tires. And he was eager to get his interview over and done with.
Before he could answer, MegaCab added “I have to stop in Whiteclay first but then I’ll take you down.”
This was only a few miles out of the way so Trevor assented and climbed into the rancher’s idling behemoth. It still retained some new-truck smell, mixed with a tinge of manure and rich earth. Really, it was almost luxurious.
MegaCab flipped a u-ey again and headed back north toward Whiteclay. Formerly notorious for copious alcohol sales to people from the dry reservation whose border it sat on, Whiteclay’s package stores had been shuttered after the state had revoked their liquor licenses following years of protests over their depredatory business model. Now, it was just a town of a couple small stores and fewer than a dozen permanent residents, its streets empty of vagrants, its ghosts banished.
“So, you from Hot Springs?”
Trevor momentarily wondered where this question had come from, and then remembered that he had 27-plates on the Blazer – Fall River County, a relic of when he bought the car from a white lady over there. He had kept the off-county registration because the plates were far less likely to get you pulled over off-rez than the infamous 65s of Oglala Lakota County.
MegaCab continued without waiting for an answer. “I used to go up to Hot Springs a lot when my dad was in the V.A. hospital up there. Nice town.”
“Yup, it’s pretty nice,” said Trevor, wondering if he would have to sustain this small talk the whole way.
Luckily, MegaCab took it from there, reminiscing about his high school football team dealing Hot Springs a particularly lopsided loss, and then they were at Whiteclay. Trevor played around on his phone while his driver of the moment went into the little grocery store. He looked up his old roommate Skyler on Facebook (why, he didn’t know; certainly not to friend him) and then Googled “Pine Ridge South Dakota Dairy Queen” just to see if there was any truth to that rumor.
MegaCab returned with some mail – Trevor had forgotten that there was a little post office in there – and they turned south toward Rushville.
Two miles and five hawks-on-telephone-poles into their trip, MegaCab got chatty again:
“I still can’t believe that the state revoked the liquor licenses. They had no legal right to do that of course, but just like everyone else these days, they bowed to the pressure from liberal special interest groups. Those store owners – my brother was one of them – followed the damn law to a T but still got their rights taken away. They’re the real victims in all of this.”
Trevor, whose father was found dead in Whiteclay when Trevor was ten years old, didn’t answer.
“You know it’s just going to push the problem down the road. These Indians are gonna get their liquor one way or another. You guys must see that all the time up in Hot Springs.”
These Indians. You guys. Trevor suddenly recognized MegaCab’s presumption, and wondered when if he should correct it.
“If they wanted to buy millions of cans of beer in Whiteclay every year and drink themselves to death, shit, I say let ‘em. It’s a free country, right? Those AIM types are always going on about Native rights and shit, y’know? Well shit, you have the right to drink and die if you want. Not saying that I want that for those people or anything, but the nanny state can’t be protecting everyone from problems of their own making.”
Trevor, whose brother had first gotten jailed for drunk and disorderly at age 14, two years after their father died, said nothing.
MegaCab continued to rhapsodize about “the Indians” and their problems, adopting the tone of an expert, one who knew all about them. Trevor felt the blood rise to his face. Some coloration at least, he thought darkly. In the pit of his stomach, the sea urchin had returned to stab at his insides. What must it be like, he wondered, to live a life in which people aren’t constantly telling you who you are, naming your characteristics like symptoms, trying to trap you like a spirit in a photograph?
The Blazer came in sight on the shoulder ahead. “Can you let me out at my ride?” Trevor asked, his voice hardly recognizable to his own ear, like hearing himself talk underwater.
“Sure, you need to grab something out of it?” said MegaCab, reluctantly pausing his diatribe.
“No it’s okay,” replied Trevor, “I’m gonna call someone to come help me fix this after all.” He fiddled with his phone as if to underscore this intention.
“Well, if you’re sure,” said MegaCab. “And hey,” he added as Trevor stepped down onto the running board. “You be careful around here. One of these rezzers might see you here all by yourself and try to mess you or your car up. And watch out for drunk drivers. You just never know with these Indians.” MegaCab gave a serious nod to accentuate this show of concern. Then he wished Trevor luck and drove off.
Trevor watched the truck recede into the distance until it was merely a gray speck between the monochrome earth and the steely sky. He sat down in the cold front seat of the Blazer and looked into the rearview mirror. Hazel eyes stared back at him under a pale forehead. Fuck it, he thought; people are dumbasses. Let ‘em believe what they want; that he was from Hot Springs, that could be was related to that Apache, Geronimo, that he was only Indian on paper. Trevor saw what they didn’t; the hidden depths beneath the surface, and in their faces, in the spaces between their words, their ignorance displayed like a tattoo.
In another minute or two, he would call Uncle Ev for a ride. In another hour or two, he would be offered a job at the sale barn that would bring another income into his household (and buy him a new serpentine belt). In another day or two, he would finally finish the tobacco ties for ceremony, at which he would pray for Travis’ sobriety and his auntie’s diabetes. In another month or two, the lengthening of the days would be unmistakable.
Spring would come as it always had, first heralded by a single meadowlark piercing the predawn silence with his song. This would be followed by a green sprig on the prairie, pushing up, perhaps, through snow. Then a cluster of pasqueflowers appearing suddenly on a hillside, a skein of geese overhead, sheet lightning on the horizon. Small miracles, one after another. Finally, color would surge back into the world like paint scintillating on a canvas, causing goldfinches to glow like stars and evening thunderheads to stand like towering fires.
The brilliant Dakota sunlight would stoke the melanin in Trevor’s skin, and nobody would mistake who he was. He would go up on the hill for two days and nights with Travis that spring, and Trenton would keep fire for them. He would pray for the coming year, for the survival of his people, for enough blessings to outweigh the hardships. And there, among a sea of undulating green, facing the crimson blaze of sunrise, he would again know himself and find the strength to carry on, in the face of all the peculiar indignities of this world.

[OC] Rainbow Six Initiation

A note to all those who read and (hopefully) enjoy this creative look at Siege; I had the afternoon to myself and decided to write something and this was that something. I've retconned the history of the games to make sense personally to myself--dates have been changed, but only slightly. I included current day events because I think it naturally creates tension between various team members, and I'll explore that at a later date if you determine this worthy of more.
Warm regards,

Hibanasan.

Logan Keller drove from Sacramento to Slab Creek in the densely forested Eldorado Wilderness of Northern California. Retired now from the military and the clandestine agencies of the United States, he is free to do as he pleases, living off a lucrative severance given to him and him alone when Team Rainbow was finally shutdown by the United States government under the Obama Administration. Even here, in the silence of the wilderness with only the babble of Slab Creek, Keller can still hear the angry shouts of senators at the many closed-door sessions of the various investigative panels convened in the aftermath of Las Vegas and Nowak.
Bitter memories exist even now, eight years later, despite Logan’s best efforts to counter them. Even the mere thought of a casino sent him into a manic spiral. In his nightmares, he can hear slot machines and bizarre elevator music, all the while he sees Gabriel taunting him. Over the years, he’d picked up several hobbies; carpentry, painting, writing, et cetera, but none of them had ever calmed him quite so much as fishing did. Paradoxically, he never kept what he caught; it wasn’t the end that interested him anymore, it was the means. Fishing required patience and determination, even in a body of water so heavily stocked and underfished like Slab Creek. From the spring thaw to the autumnal freeze, water bugs and insects clung to the top of the creek like a hazy fog mere inches from the trout below the surface.
Fishing in the remote wilderness brought Keller to a place of solace and afforded him some peace in an otherwise chaotic world. On the drive down, Keller reflected on the current events of the world as they were relayed over the airwaves via NPR; migrants tear gassed at the US/Mexico border, Russian warships firing on Ukrainian ships in the Baltics, and a total sum of Yemenis who’d been killed by weaponized starvation at the hands of the Saudis so large it was practically a meaningless statistic. The world, Keller reflected, was a dangerous place that played cruel tricks on good people. This place, however, was a world unto itself, apart from the world around, and here he had his peace.
As he passed the dam, he shut off the radio and cranked open the windows of his 95’ Ford F-150. He took the pass off the southern tip of the dam and followed a winding road several meters above the banks of the river. Slab Creek, Keller thought, reminded him of a fjord in miniature; steep slopes dropped straight into the water, no beach, no reprieve. He’d once had to throw a rope to a man whose kayak had capsized as the poor soul faced a swim of a few hundred yards in either direction. There were breaks in the slopes here and there, but they were far and few between; Keller knew of a couple, and after another ten minutes, he pulled off the road nearest one of those spots.
Keller threw the gear into park, depressed the pedal for the e-brake, and turned off the engine. He grabbed his SIG and tucked it into his hip holster and stepped out of the pickup. As he cracked open the locker in the bed of the truck to retrieve his fishing gear, he took a glance up through the tree canopies to see the overcast sky; rain wasn’t in the forecast, but then again, this was California. He just hoped to get a good few hours in before the rain ruined a good afternoon of fishing for him.
Trekking down the steep slope was no easy feat; Keller had to hack and slash his way through bushes and branches, watched for bugs or wild animals, and had to laboriously and strategically place his footing, lest he slip and fall, and die in the wilderness. At his secluded fishing spot, Keller swept away dead branches and fallen leaves with his boots, then dropped his backpack. He set his tackle box near the edge of the drop and rested the fishing pole nearby as he fixed himself a cup of coffee from the thermos.
His cell phone, which annoyingly still had service, though barely, chirped, and Keller glanced at the screen; a restricted caller. He watched the screen as the phone continued to ring and then finally the call was missed. Logan sighed and held down the power button until the phone shut off, and then went to work setting the line. In the blinking of an eye, two hours had passed, and Keller had nabbed two trout, the second of which, put up a big fight over its being captured, and evaded Logan’s best efforts to reel it in for twenty minutes. Eventually Logan had it, brought it up to the bank, took a rough estimation of length and weight, and then unhooked it and set it free back into Slab Creek.
A bolt of lightning exploded across the sky as Logan returned to his perch, and thunder followed immediately thereafter. It was akin to an explosion, and Logan looked up to the sky as the clouds broke. At first a drop and then a deluge. He pulled his cap on tightly and began to gather his things when he heard another thunder clap. He unzipped his backpack and tossed the thermos inside, and then froze; the thunder had a rhythmic repetition to it. The aural noise became clearer like a frequency first out of tune, and then attenuated to its proper fidelity; a helicopter. It sounded like a Blackhawk, and Keller stepped out to the ledge of the perch and looked east in the direction of the sound; the California National Guard sometimes ran training out in the boonies, but this helicopter sounded very low. Soon, the canyon was filled with the deafening chopping of the large helicopter, and Keller caught a glimpse of the aircraft as it banked down the canyon. A wall of spray was kicked off the surface of the river by the hurricanic gusts generated by the helicopter, and Keller raised his hand to shield his face as the helicopter passed overhead, just over the tree tops. It was headed for the dam.
Keller didn’t see the staple ‘US ARMY’ livery on the tail of the helicopter and his suspicions rose; the park service flew a couple, but they weren’t black, and the fire fighting variants were white and orange, but also, they were mostly Huey’s and not Blackhawks. Curiosity overcame Keller as he clambered back up the slope to the road. He dug his car keys from his pocket and jogged across the country backroad to the Ford. In the distance, he could hear the engine of the Blackhawk spooling down. Logan let down the tailgate, plunked the tackle box down in the bed with the rod in its protective casing, and then lastly tossed the backpack in before he closed the tailgate and plugged the key into the driver’s side door to unlock the truck. The tumblers in the lock clicked one after the other and Keller placed his fingers on the handle when he heard a man clear his throat behind him.
“Logan Keller?”
Logan froze; the man sounded like he was off to his six. He turned his head slightly and saw the man stood at the edge of the road from where he’d just come from. Impossible, he thought; he should have noticed him, but he didn’t.
“That depends on who’s asking,” Logan said.
“Uncle Sam,” The man replied.
Keller released the handle and now fully turned around to take in the man; he was military, there was no doubt about that in Logan’s mind. He wore Oakley patrol shades and sported a thick mustache and beard, wore a white t-shirt, and a plaid button up left unbuttoned with the sleeves rolled up over his biceps. Baggy jeans, a thick nylon belt, and Oakley combat boots. Logan bet the man had a gun on him, the same as he did. Marines, Keller thought? No, the regulations were too loose with this one. Certainly not Army, either. His arrogance left only one branch in mind; Navy.
“What is a SEAL doing this far inland, I wonder?” Keller asked in his soft Texan drawl.
The man uncrossed his arms.
“How did you?” Logan heard him mutter under his breath. “Never mind that, I was sent to retrieve you.”
“By?”
“That’s between you and them,” The man said. “The dam, come, follow me.”
“Why don’t we take my truck? I’ve been fishing all day, and I’m pretty body sore from the fight the trout put up,” Logan said.
“Sir, I-“
“You can walk, and I’ll met you there, if that’s how you feel,” Logan said, and he turned and pulled open the door.
He adjusted the rearview mirror to watch the SEAL. The man caved and walked over to the passenger door and Keller let him in.
“Also, only the Navy would let their regulations out that much,” Logan said by way of letting the man know he knew he was a SEAL. “Afghanistan?”
“Yes, sir,” The man said. “Spent some time in the Hindu Kush, the elders there attribute beards with wisdom and respect; you grow the hair, they grow the trust.”
“Ah,” Logan said as he turned on the truck. “I was a Marine, saw some action in the Second Gulf War.”
“I know, sir,” The SEAL said.
Logan rested his foot on the e-brake and took in the SEAL for a moment, and then depressed and released the e-brake and put the F-150 into gear.
“So, where am I going then?”
“Just down near the dam, sir.”
Logan realigned his rear-view mirror and brought the wheel all the way to the left to make a U-turn across the narrow country road as rain pelted off the broad windshield of the pickup. Crossing back towards the dam, the Blackhawk came into sight; whomever the pilot was, he’d squeezed that big bitch into a parking space the size of a shoe box. Keller considered himself impressed. The idle blades of the propeller drooped in four directions around the fuselage of the military helicopter, rain ran their lengths and trickled from their angled edges. Keller eyed two men stood on the damn, but they had their backs to him.
“You can park it here, sir,” The SEAL said.
Logan didn’t reply, and he pulled up alongside the Blackhawk and parked the Ford. As he pulled the key from the ignition, he glanced passed the Navy SEAL through the passenger window to the open bay of the Blackhawk. A woman sat in the rear rack, tablet rested across her lap. As if sensing eyes on her, she looked directly at Logan, and then slunk down into her seat, and hid her face behind the open door of the Blackhawk. Logan was suddenly on edge.
“Follow me, sir,” The Navy SEAL said as he stepped out of the truck.
Logan considered his options for a moment, the road across was clear, but they had a helicopter, whoever they were. Logan stewed and then pulled the handle and opened the door. He stepped into the rain and retrieved his backpack and fishing pole.
“Sir, I really don’t think the-“
“This spinning reel cost $1,500, it’s coming with us,” Logan said defiantly. “Now, I’d like to speak to whomever is in charge here, and I’d like to do that right now.”
“Sir, I was only sent to fetch you, you’ll be-“The SEAL said, his hands up to calm Logan.
“I’ll be nothing,” Logan said as he stepped around the Navy SEAL. He looked to the girl in the helicopter. “Miss, are you in charge of all of this?”
“Sir, please,” The SEAL said as he steered Logan away.
“Get your hands off of me,” Logan said. He sidestepped the Navy SEAL to the right and put himself between the nose of the Blackhawk and the girl in the cabin. “Now, you either let me speak to the person in charge of this whatever this is, or I walk, right this second, do you understand me?”
“Oh, I hear you,” Another voice called from behind Logan.
Full of anger and contempt at what these people were doing, Logan spun and was about to yell when he was taken aback by who stood before him.
“Ding?” Logan asked in confusion.
The man had aged considerably since the last time the two had spoken; their not speaking had not arisen from some distaste either man felt for the other, but from their shared experiences of testifying before the Congress over a period of a year.
“Hi, Logan,” Ding said. “Long time, no see.”
“Ding, what the hell is going on?”
“I’ll explain once we’re on the chopper,” The man replied. He signaled the back and forth was over as he stepped past Logan, squeezed his shoulder, and then clambered into the hold of the Blackhawk. From inside he heard, “Marius, wheels up in sixty seconds.”
Logan simply blinked a few times as he tried to process what was happening. Just when he thought he’d understood, Eddie Price, the second man on the bridge, walked by and winked at him before he joined Ding in the hold. Logan scratched his head with his left hand, looked to the Blackhawk as the pilot went through his pre-flight list, then to his truck and then to the Navy SEAL.
“Sir, this way, please,” The bearded man said as he extended his left arm in a ‘please-go-here’ motion.
Logan wanted to say something, but the words escaped him, and he simply shrugged and ducked into the troop bay. Keller took a seat on the middle rack of the bench seats, right across from the woman with the tablet; she was Asian, possibly Korean, her bespectacled eyes glued to her wide tablet on her lap. She glanced up at him quickly, and then disappeared back into the illuminated screen. The Navy SEAL took the seat next to Keller, and Ding crowded in next to the Korean girl so he was off to Logan’s front left in the cramped confines of the Blackhawk.
“What about my truck?”
“We’ll send someone for it, it’ll be back in the garage for you with a full tank of gas for the trouble,” Ding said. He then pointed to the rack above for Logan to don a headset. In unison, nearly all the people aboard slipped a pair on.
“Aren’t we missing someone?” Eddie Price asked.
“Sniper-1, we’re wheels up,” Ding said. “Get onboard or you’re walking back to KBAB.”
The Navy SEAL tapped Logan’s left knee to get his attention and then pointed out the troop hold beyond the Ford to the tree line. Logan squinted as he scrutinized the forested hillside. He blinked, and a man appeared before his eyes from the tree line, bullpup sniper rifle cradled in both arms. The ghillied sniper ducked into a crouch beneath the spinning blade of the Blackhawk and climbed aboard before the pilot powered the helicopter off the deck.
Once they were clear of the mountain range and the pilot powered down for level flight, Ding called Logan’s name over the intercom of the Blackhawk.
“Logan, I know you have many questions,” Ding said. “The government is putting together a team, and these are just a few people that they have on offer,” The former director of Team Rainbow said. “I know you’ve already spoken, but this is Craig Jensen, United States Navy.”
Logan and Jensen shook hands across the hold.
“Grace Nam is the one who found you,” Ding then said as he leaned to his left.
“Logan Keller,” Logan said as he shook Grace’s hand.
“You missed our call,” Grace said as she pushed her glasses further back up her nose.
“I know, I watched as I missed it,” Logan said back. “How the hell did you find me anyway?”
“We triangulated your position using the local cell towers, though out here, the coverage is sparse,” Grace said with a hint of annoyance in her tone.
“We also talked to Hoyte down at Flighz,” Ding said, referring to Logan’s usual bartender.
“I’m gonna have a talk with Hoyte next time I go down there,” Logan said.
“I bet,” Ding said with a laugh. “Of course, I suspect you already know Eddie?”
“Of course, you put me through the paces at Hereford back in the day,” Logan said as the two shook hands. “You were a lot younger back then.”
“And thinner,” The Brit joked with a cheeky smile.
“How times have changed,” Logan muttered to himself, though everyone on headset heard him.
“Logan, you look like you haven’t aged a day,” Ding said.
“Credit my ex for putting me on a dermatological regimen,” Logan said sarcastically. “It’s the soap with the beads that make all the difference.”
“The soap with beads is terrible for the environment,” The ghillied sniper said in a Russian accent.
“And you are?” Logan asked as he pivoted in his seat.
“Glazkov, Timur Glazkov, I am pleased to meet you, Logan,” The sniper said as he extended a gloved hand for Keller to shake. “I wanted to say that you are a credit to anglers around the world, I watched you all day, but I think you fight the fish a little too much; let them do the fighting, there’s no sense to tire yourself; if you want to catch the big ones, let fly rest on surface. The big fat fish don’t chase a lure that moves too much.”
“Thanks, I guess,” Logan said as his brain retraced his steps; how had this man watched him for so long without his noticing?
“Glaz is on loan from the Russian Federation,” Ding said by way of explaining the Russian’s presence. “In fact, mostly everyone here is on loan from somewhere else.”
“What do you mean by that?” Logan asked suspiciously. “Are we getting the band back together?”
Ding and Eddie laughed, and Grace cracked a smile on her otherwise indifferent resting face.
“Yes, and no,” Ding said. “The directive came from Washington, Six is being brought out of mothball.”
“This came from the president?” Logan asked skeptically.
“Oi, lad, I hope not,” Eddie laughed at the president’s expense.
“Hey, watch it, didn’t you guys just get kicked out of Club Europe?” Jensen cut in.
“Actually, we democratically elected to toss our oars overboard so that we might finally have things our way,” Eddie corrected himself sarcastically, and got a chuckle out of both Craig and Timur.
“This came from DHS and the Joint Chiefs; Six is blacker than black. NATO, the Department of the Interior, and the Office of Special Projects via the Pentagon,” Ding said with a semblance of pride in his tone.
“Team Rainbow was blacker than black before Gabe,” Logan reminded the man ominously.
“We’ve learned from our mistakes, Logan,” Ding said solemnly. “Vegas blew the lid clean off the top of Team Rainbow, Six is just the natural progression of evolution.”
“And should Six be compromised?”
“Let’s cross that bridge if and when we come to it,” Ding said.
In a little under twenty minutes, the Blackhawk had crossed over Kilaga Springs and come in for a landing at Beale Air Force Base. The pilot brought the Blackhawk to a standstill outside a reserved hangar, and as the doors parted, they revealed a LearJet nestled within. In a few moments, a crew had wheeled the aircraft into the overcast and drizzle and dropped the stairs for the passengers of the Blackhawk. Logan was the second man off the helicopter and Ding Chavez joined him.
“Once you’re aboard, Six is going to want to speak to you privately about what she expects from the new outfit,” Ding said as he crossed his arms. The two of them watched as Grace Nam jogged over to the jet and disappeared inside, and then watched as Jensen and Glazkov busted out cigarettes to have a smoke before the ride out. “You see, the problem with Team Rainbow was that there was no accountability,” Ding suddenly said. Logan was caught off guard. “NATO mandated the creation of the old team after a wave of free actors rose up in the aftermath of the Soviet Union’s collapse, and we funded it through the Department of the Interior. If what happened in Vegas had happened in some shithole somewhere else, we’d all still have our old titles, but it didn’t. When the senate finally took a look at their own books, they got angry and they felt tricked—that is the reason Team Rainbow was shuttered. Logan, Six needs accountability for their actions and their inactions, understand?”
“Of course,” Logan said. “But I think all of this works under the assumption that I’m going to accept their offer.”
“Oh, I have a feeling you will,” Ding said as he slapped his friend on the back. At present the pilot came around from the helicopter, helmet held under one arm. “Oh, also, Logan, there wasn’t time for a proper introduction, this is your pilot, Marius Streicher.”
“Herr Logan,” Marius said, overexaggerating his Germanness. “I read the technical manual you put out years back.”
“I’m honored, I suppose,” Logan said.
“Right, yes, well, I should be getting aboard,” Marius said, and he ducked away to board the plane.
“As should you, Logan, good luck,” Ding said with a wide smile.
“Are you not coming, too?” Logan asked as he stopped in his tracks, fishing rod in one hand, backpack slung off his left shoulder.
“It would appear that Six misplaced my invitation,” Ding said as he opened his palms and shrugged.
“Sir, I wouldn’t’ve come this far if I thought you wouldn’t be there,” Logan said as he rolled his shoulder to keep his backpack from sliding down his arm. Rain dripped down the back of his neck.
Ding smiled and nodded.
“I know, Logan,” He said. “You’ll still have Eddie, though.”
“Bishop?”
“Don’t you think they asked her to be here, too?” Ding asked with a smirk. “I only accepted because we have a history and I think you’re the right man for the job.”
“Sir, it isn’t Team Rainbow without you,” Logan said.
“That’s just it,” Ding said with a raw and bittersweet grin. “It isn’t Team Rainbow anymore. It’s Six.”
