Every Thursday here at stay tuned for another exciting chapter in Tom Locke’s story. Its not dystopian but, have mercy, its one man’s survival.


  • How far we have fallen


Tom knew he was pressing his luck but the statement he made was his last resort.

“My name is Tom Locke. I don’t plan on leaving here alive but I would much rather die out there, fighting them.”

Agent Killeen looked over this strange man. His face was beat up and mentally he seemed to be traversing a shale cliff that fell to deep insanity. Though in his eyes burned a fire of insistence. One that only appears in the already deranged and those telling the truth. She was trained to read the gestures and intricate facial disruptions of human communication. The Agent could see a liar from a mile away. This man before her was telling the truth.

“My flight crash landed a couple days ago, few days ago. It’s hard to remember now. How come no one has come to clean that mess up?”

She knelt beside him and spoke quietly, “If this thing goes badly up here. We could be in a lot of trouble.”

She paused listening again for a moment the cacophony had died down a bit as those who weren’t so lucky in their first go round resided to their place in the order.

“There are camps like these in every state on the mainland. Some states more than a couple. They have been training in our most densely populated cities and areas more remote than this. We are stretched so thin here that if this gets ugly there won’t be much else we can do. The American people will be on their own.”

“Could the timing be more perfect? What with the state of police relations and the shaving of military forces.”

“It’s perfect because it was supposed to be perfect.”

 Tom sat up and looked her over. She was very serious and he could see sweat beading on her head.

“Elaborate. I may not make it off this mountain alive. Give me the satisfaction.”

“We don’t have much time. I will make it brief. The police were isolated and attacked, just as the second amendment, immigration was blown wide open so this terror army could easily fill it’s ranks. A radical Muslim military grew inside our borders as our own was being thinned. The whole world was falling into war and we were thinning our ranks.

None of this was coincidence. The riots were stimulated by agitators who knew something like this was close. They wanted the police disarmed and now most of their riot gear and heavy weapons are collecting dust in a storage unit somewhere. That’s best case scenario.

The center right was broken and submitted to the idea that Muslims were streaming into the country with only good intentions. Those who spoke out lost careers. This threat whispered through alleyways and into the ears of the  highest  offices in the land. These religious killers followed Sun Tzu to a T and now, with America so dividied, they strike. Unless we stop them.”
