Anchors No More # 36: One for the Team

Gary almost cried when he first saw Holly, but fortunately he was too jacked up on adrenaline, nerves and fear to do so. If he would have started crying then she would have started and then they would make a scene in the middle of the most inappropriate circumstances imaginable. So he simply embraced her, […]

Anchors No More #35: Hello, Fan? Shit on Line Three.

Vanderhoff fired his pistol three times. Two bullets struck Daniel Hobbes in the chest knocking him back against the Marshall Temporal Device. The third bullet flew past Daniel, missing Gary’s head by a few inches and slamming into the wall. In the brief humming pause, Gary watched in mute horror as Daniel sunk to his […]

Anchors No More #34: Somebody You Used to Know

  It was hectic after the gunshot, the confusion and the screaming and the pushing and shoving… Holly came out of her daze slowly, realizing James had his hands on her shoulders and he was speaking to her, saying something… ”… come on, we need you. Holly!” Her eyes focused and James smiled, “That’s my […]

Anchors No More #33: Timing is Basically Everything

 Lawrence Queen knew he had one job to do when he split off from the Ankura group thirty-five minutes earlier.

Anchors No More # 32: A Definite Chain of Events

Guns raised, tempers growing more volatile and unstable with each passing second. Gary couldn’t think, there was only a blank white slate where an idea should have been. Then someone said, “Let me explain,” and he looked around, trying to locate who spoke. He was more surprised than anyone was to realize it was he […]

Anchors No More #31: Bend Not Break

It was Holly’s idea to plant Brandon in the laboratory crowd thinking it could be a way to sway opinion without force having to be applied. Now she could only hope that she had been right. It comforted her to know Steven and Carla were there, guns raised at the detained scientists, reminding them that […]

Anchors No More #30: An Unexpected Change of Plans

The elevator door slid shut behind them. Gary, Daniel and Restrepo stood silently on Level B3, the grey tiled floor of the dim halls complimenting their moods. Gary shook off his warm creeping nostalgia. Christ, he thought, looking at Restrepo, unable to believe it had only been ten days. All of this, all of that, […]

Anchors No More #29: Maybe Show and Probably Tell

In the few minutes that passed between taking her position at the table and Steven and Cassie entering the room, Holly had time to think. She was positive that this was not a good thing. She periodically glanced up from the clipboard she feigned reading and each time saw at least one set of eyes […]

Anchors No More #28: In Consideration of Recent Events

It was only a seven second pause but it felt like a million years to Holly, standing in the elevator car, leaning back slightly to keep her face hidden behind Steven and Carla. She forgot to breathe, caught herself and took a quick gulp of air. Vanderhoff was facing forward but still had his head […]

Anchors No More #27: There’s Nary a Locale Like Home

Down Hall C, turning left and then left again a little further, Daniel and Gary walked slowly with Restrepo positioned behind them a few meters. They passed scientists, guards and security cameras, finally taking a right and ending up in an empty hallway about thirty meters long. Restrepo took a few quick steps, closing the […]
