Voyage of the Colonel Darvish

Rockets Red Glare

Diego sees more rockets

Diego observes people scurrying about eventually coming back to work on the situation at hand. Several people move over into the area and you can see people ferociously working on the boat on its side, they appear to be cutting through the hull. Others are tending to small fires and moving bodies or wounded….Suddenly he sees a large puff of smoke like another explosion further south along the coast inside the trees of Coyote Point..

A rocket or missile of some sort emerges and streaks skyward as a large bang of a door slamming erupts behind him and a gruff voice yells ’WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE, GET OUT OF THE WAY"

Fight or flight, that is the question.

Having been witness to enough combat and its effects in the past, Diego grabs Sam’s arm, “Let us make haste, young man!”, and decides to collect his belongings and push for an early exit.

It’s not so much the braggart that is crashing the room, but the thought of a rocket that is headed who-knows-where that is raising Diego’s inner, survival instincts.

It’s not so much the loud mouth that is crashing the room, but the thought of a rocket that is headed who-knows-where that is raising Diego’s inner, survival instincts.

Diego collapses his telescope and spins to leave. A Military Officer of some sorts has entered the room along with two soldiers with combat gear on “JONAS MOVE THESE PEOPLE!” the officer yells and one of the soldiers is rising a nightstick in a threatening fashion.

Diego is the first out the door there are several other soldiers in the hallway heading inside and there is a bit of bumping but Diego manages to get by, there is a lot of commotion and shouting behind him. He reaches the ground floor there is only one guard left at the door and the jeep that pulled up earlier.

In the distance another military vehicle, a pickup is speeding toward the tower. Diego retrieves his bike and hightails it back to his school, passing the military truck full of soldiers which speed toward the Tower

Two things Diego wants accomplish.

First, he wants to get to his classroom and make some kind of notice and communiques that class is indefinitely suspended for obvious reasons, safety being of the highest priority.

Next, he wants to head back to his dorm and collect a small pack of “survival gear” in case things really hit the fan
