“Judy and John – The Cave – Just a Little Slip”
By Teresa Smeigh February 2016
Gina had been gone about half an hour and Cindy was rummaging in the cave for some food for them all.
Judy started crying and Cindy came back to comfort her sister. Judy had been strong, but now she was missing the baby and was afraid she would never see Michael again.
The soldier watched her quietly. He moved and the dog growled. He got the message quickly especially seeing the other dead soldier. He lay quietly.
In an American accent he told Judy that he had something for her in his pocket, but obviously she would have to come closer to get it.
Cindy came back and placed the gun to his head. Judy nervously reached in the shirt pocket and pulled out a note in Paulie Bayman’s handwriting, her old boyfriend, who was dead in that raid. She would know it anywhere. She fell back on the floor, trembling, and burst into a new spate of crying. The note said Michael is with Boaz and I can show you where, but you have to let me free.
She walked over to the soldier and pulled off the mustache, the beard and then the hat. Paulie was dark-haired and the spitting image of this soldier. He even sounded like him.
She paced, not knowing what to do. Wait for Michael or head out on her own. They couldn’t leave the poor pilot alone with no protection. Gina wasn’t here to let the soldier/Paulie go.
Cindy didn’t ask. She shot the dead shoulder, waited a few beats and the fired 3 times hoping Gina and John were in the area to hear them and not the bad guys.
The girls hid in the cave out of the opening. They heard someone stealthily moving in and prayed it was Johnny and Gina.
Judy, John cried out. We’re okay come on in and see this note. This soldier is Paulie, he is not dead and he has a note about Michael.
John and Gina walked in followed by soldiers at their backs rifles pressed up tight not allowing for much movement.
No, you can’t have my baby Judy shouted. He is mine and I intend to save him.
The lead soldier sees his dead soldier and one he doesn’t recognize.
Drop the guns ladies the soldier ordered.
Gina gave a new signal and the shepherd attacked the head guy and ripped him apart and Judy and Cindy shot the other two, warning Paulie to move out of the way. He moved warily but quickly, aware of the dog.
Once the enemy was taken care of, John wanted to see the note. He read, Michael is with Boaz and I can show you where, but you have to let me free.
So this is the famous boyfriend who might be Michael’s father instead of me?
Whoa was Paulie’s reaction. I might be a father? And Boaz has that baby. I’ll kill him. He never told me.
Just then the pilot woke up. We can’t hide here John it is not safe. Gina went to the pilot again and checked his wound and splint and asked John if they should knock him out again. It really wasn’t safe.
Paulie said I can take you straight to Boaz. He isn’t far from here and he has your father and mother both alive still at the moment. Most likely because he needs your mother to take care of Michael and he knows if he kills the woman and/or the husband, he will be stuck with childcare and that is not his thing.
Does he know you are still alive John wonders aloud.
No he thinks I am dead like everyone else and he hopes the baby will provide leverage of some sort.
What sort. We can’t help him.
He is being tracked by the Aussies and they are a determined bunch.
Great two different enemies John thinks quietly to himself.
Alright here is the current plan. Move the pilot out of site and dose him with plenty of alcohol. Hopefully he will remain quiet. Then all of us follow Paulie carefully. If I find you double-crossed us, Paulie, you will be as dead as those men right there, pointing at the dead soldiers.
We get to Boaz’s and stay outside and you have a family reunion. Try to get a hold of Michael and say that you heard he might be yours and you want a DNA test, you don’t want another man’s baby.
Boaz must have a radio or communication of some sort. We burst in and you convince him not to shoot we are here to save him from the Aussie drug runners. If he cooperates we will convince them to go easy on him and depending on whose baby it is besides Judy’s we will work this out one way or another.
Constructive Criticism welcome! Not sure I understood no external dialogue on here.
