Tom Locke: Surviving Today XXIII
Every Thursday here at http://www.iamliberty.wordpress.com stay tuned for another exciting chapter in Tom Locke’s story. Its not dystopian but, have mercy, its one man’s survival
- A point of no return
The woods were opening up before them. The sun was creeping up the mountain behind them and in between was a military cloaked by a religion. America was in the crosshairs of that army tonight and it was up to Tom Locke and Najair to make that info known. If they failed small armies of militant Muslims would stream into American neighborhoods tonight. While they slept their doors would be broken in and the the first great land attack on American soil would begin. If allowed it would be nothing short of a massacre and the infidel would not be given the option to convert.
As the two of them rushed towards the opening in the woods and hopefully towards some answers Tom looked up through the trees. The scarlet sunrise was an ominous premonition to him though still glorious. He realized it could be his last. There were thin blades of clouds miles up that seemed to be cutting sparse sun rays into the sky. As the sun neared the mountain top fiery oranges and deep reds gave way to gold and cool blues. The birth of this giant day in history started with a bang.
The leaves began to thin and beyond the woods there was another road. The bright colors of advertisements and homes began to peak through as well. Tom’s heart pounded harder with a moderate elation. He knew the demons on his tail would rip through a neighborhood without impunity. Still, there was hope.
Mayfair was ahead of Tom and as the final down hill slope gave way to civilization three forms took shape. Three men waited at the trails exit. Three men in light military gear with their heads covered in black masks. The man between the other two held an AK-47 at his side. The two men stood with handguns at their sides. They hadn’t surrounded the store. Instead they set up a much wider perimeter. That had captured Tom and Najair in their net. Or so he thought.
Slowing his stride a bit Tom was trying to figure a way out of this mess. To his surprise Najair only increased his stride and hollered out in a vicious voice, “ALLAH AKBAR!” The men raised their weapons but a bullet leveled the man with the rifle quickly and Najair pounced another. In awe Tom picked up a large rock and hurled it at the other gunman. It hit his right shoulder just before a shot rang out and missed Najair. Instinctively Tom was on top of this man in an instant.
As the two men wrestled their opponents it became very clear what made up a true Muslim warrior. Najair was prepared to die today and Tom had to be too. Despite their disagreements in religion it was clear whatever universal God turkey existed was shining on these two men today.
Now Tom had an AK!
