Wake Up Call

Sriklan Islands were swamped with helicopters, sea planes, and search boats. A literal army, a swarm of military personnel had flooded the restricted island territories.

"These Islands are strictly off limits, no official maps even contain their presence... The President of the United States isn't even permitted to know of the location of these islands Jim... So tell me how two of my best operatives simply disappeared? ...I don't want excuses I want answers! Call me when you actually know something!" General Akbar nearly broke the com phone as he slammed it into its receiver in his quarters aboard the USS Silence. "The CIA is worthless...", he muttered to himself.

General Akbar looked down at his watch. 2313. It had been just over 21 days since they had each disappeared from their pick up points… at the same time. Both had reported in, ready for evac. Now, both were Missing In Action (MIA) upon extraction. What was most disturbing was the total lack of any other presence having come or gone. No signs of struggle; no blood or missing items; it's as though they'd simply vanished. The worst possibility was that they are defected, but he knew these two, like his own kids, better than his own kids. It wasn't possible. The other possibility, nearly as bad possibility was that they had been taken, which was a more likely scenario. The preferred possibility is that they were playing some massive practical joke on him, which would warrant a severe reprimand and was totally contrary to their character. Option 2 had the most merit, but that's leaves more questions than answers. How can two people disappear from the most top secrete set of Islands in the world?

The door swung open, and in ran a younger man, half heaving, holding a piece of paper.

"Sir."

"What is it Sargent?"

"Motion sensors detect movement on one of the south islands."

"We haven't trained down there in months. Are you sure it's not those stupid Monkey's again?"

"We checked sir, camera footage is rough from the distance, but we captured this image."

"Well I'll be... Get a unit down there now, and go in armed, we don't know what to expect."

"Yes sir"

With that the door closed and left the General alone. "Where have those two been?!"

***********

Ash came to himself blinded by a terrible light, which hurt his eyes. He rolled over onto his belly, and planted his face into his pillow... No, this wasn't a pillow, it was... sand? He accidentally breathed some in and began coughing uncontrollably. He would have to get his bearings, but first he'd have to get his senses. He rose to his hands and knees and calmed his mind, slowed his heart rate. Focus. That's what he needed right now. His eyes still hurt too much to open, but he didn't need them just yet.

Birds. Sand. Wind in trees. Water washing ashore in a quiet steady cadence. He was on the island? The sand between his fingers was cold to the touch, but the sun on his back and face was quite warm. These had to be white sand islands. He was back to the training center? Had he ever left? What happened.... wait... What is that? As his vision came back, he could make out the silhouette of someone thrashing about on the sand. "Eta…", of course.

***********

Eta was thrashing around, blindly looking for something or someone to attack. It was only after she ran out of breath that she realized she was alone. Her eyesight was coming back, but it was still much too bright to fully open her eyes, even with the clothe that she'd tied around her face to block the sun.

All she could see was trees, water, sand. Now that she was too tired to fight.... nothing... she could hear the sounds of the island. There was one sound that was not familiar... A rustling in the trees, less than half a klick away. Someone was headed this way,

"Eta…" the voice called.

"Ash?"

"Yep, it's me."

"Where are we? I can't see a thing out here."

"I have no idea, I was hoping you could tell me."

She could hear helicopters and speed boats headed their way…. "We have to move quickly, sounds like a whole bunch of bogies are coming our way."

"Eta, their friendlies. It's the General's team." They stood together, waiting for the evac team to come on to the beach. She gave him a friendly punch on the shoulder. He was like her big brother, always looking out for her. Even when she didn't want him to.

***********

General Akbar waiting until they had been checked by doctors, before taking them straight into the briefing room with his top staff.

"Where have you two been?"

"What do you mean sir?" Ash replied.

"What do I mean?" General Akbar looked to his staff with a questioning glance. "I mean, you've been missing for 15 days, and I need to know why, and where you were?"

"21 days?" Eta stated, dumfounded. "I figured 15 minutes… maybe. I completed the mission, called for an evac…"

"Me too." Ash interrupted. Then there was this bright light, and I woke up on the beach a few minutes later."

"That's right. Are you saying we've been missing for 21days?" Eta was incredulous.

"These two need to be checked again. Get them to the infirmary, now!"

Two months later:

General Akbar walked into a meeting room and slid two files in front of Ash and Eta. "It is with a heavy heart I have to inform you, that you are being retired. We just can't keep two of our most valuable assets in the field, if you cannot account for missing 21 days of your life. Even with all your training, if you have been programed… You'll be under surveillance, and required to report in to me directly four times a year. Maybe, in time, this will pass. For now you are being honorably discharged, with cover stories to account for the last 20 years of your respective careers. You will report any new memory you have to me, personally, immediately. Is that clear?"

"Yes Sir."

"Yes Sir."

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

Shots in the dark...

For the first time since my wife passed, June 25, 2018, I've decided to start writing again. Not sure if this will make it into the final cut of the novel I'm working on (Distortion, a White Noise series), but I thought I'd share the rough draft of my first words back.

***
Wet hail assaulted the thin metal roof of the RV like a barrage of weapons fire. Ash sat on the floor, back against the couch, dripping red water onto the floor, a mix of his own from a rough patch and hers... His mind was black as the room, his thoughts hidden from himself like the storm had hidden the stars.

Like the random hits of blue lightning outside the windows, images flashed through his mind of the night's events. What he could have done differently. What he could have done to prevent it. Every plan had been stunted, but they persevered, until the end. He kept coming up blank. Every alternative could have ended them here. He was lost. Blank. Mind racing on a track with no destination.

He was…

First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…
