Anchors No More # 16: Nothing But Your Over-Easy Heart

After hours of debate, Holly gave Daniel a frustrated glare. “It has to be that way, there’s no other choice.” Daniel’s gut was acetous with a combination of not understanding the mathematics for himself and not being comfortable with the reality of their final plan. He knew she was right but there had to be […]

Anchors No More #15: Successed To Death

Holly believed what she was hearing but she didn’t want to. How could she want to hear that, let alone admit it was true? She perspired as she listened, his words emetic to her already fragile physical state. “It was all in place,” Daniel said, “as soon as they got their hands on you two […]

Anchors No More #14: Meanwhile, Back at the Immaculately Funded, Heavily Guarded Ranch…

Tobias Vanderhoff was in a foul mood. He had already called his wife and told her he would not be coming home that night, probably not for the next several nights. She was pissed, as he guessed she would be, and this only added to his already soured disposition. Entering the lab after that phone […]

Anchors No More #13: Speaking of Worms…

As the night progressed, Gary and Holly got what they needed. After some soup and sandwiches, they were left alone to rest. Sleep eventually came for Holly following a restless hour where she tossed on the adequately comfortable couch, too worn to speak of the thoughts surging through her consciousness yet too emotionally dynamic to […]

Anchors No More #12: Never Mind The Dog

Restrepo pulled the car into Franklin Automotive, a grungy looking auto repair garage on the outskirts of Pratt. He drove around to the back and parked, sitting in the car with Gary and Holly for a moment before saying, “We’re here,” and opening the car door, “Take your bags and let’s get inside.” Holly gabbed […]

Anchors No More #11: The Dark, Empty Streets of Freedom

They passed the taco truck and continued north, leaving behind the small town that served primarily as the quick lunch or dinner destination for ARLIS employees. Beyond the town they hit open countryside, moving towards the highway and a straight shot west to Pratt. The Kansas roads were gloriously dark and empty, filling Sebastian Restrepo […]

Anchors No More #10: Seven To Go

The sunset brought the chill, placing a frosty edge on the moist air. Holly pressed her body into Gary, his arm wrapped around her tight trying to keep her warm. Still lying in the tall grass as they had been for the past four hours, they watched the red then orange and then purple brilliance […]

Anchors No More #9: Hurry Up And Wait

Gary and Holly followed Sebastian Restrepo without question. In a daze they walked, their confusion matched only by their weary fatigue as they were taken this way and that, down the hall then left, waiting, needing to ask questions, to probe for some indication of where they were being taken, where was their research, what […]

Anchors No More #8: His Mother’s Eyes

Sebastian Restrepo left Columbia at the age of nineteen, running away one night under the guise of the chaos of the riots. He went North, arriving in San Diego five months later with only fifty-eight credits, a handful of paper money, his military-issued pistol, and a folded and worn photo of his mother and sister […]

Anchors No More #7: Where We Find Ourselves

Their cell was cold and the vomitish mint green color of the concrete walls did little to improve their state of discomfort. Holly stared at the floor, hovering on the precipice of tears since they were locked in the small holding room five hours earlier. Her sorrow was not due to the more obvious factors, […]
