I was really getting tired of falling but if I could at least get more of a warning than a headache and drop. I could feel Sara getting upset and running outside find me. I was guessing was because of where I was. seemed that the enhanced senses weren't just connected the bear because I had them here. I pushed myself up and stood as Ingrid stared at me smiling. I wasn't sure why she was smiling, or why I was in this exact place, or why was dark.

"Hello Daniel, my told me that I would meet you sooner or later but I wasn't expecting to meet you here. How did you get here?" I was going to dumb for as long as I could but I was pretty curious about that as well.

"Ingrid. I have no idea, but why is pitch black?" I could sense beings of some sort around us, beings I wouldn't choose associate with which made me wonder why Ingrid would. I figured it was why Sara was concerned and trying find me.

"Does darkness scare you, Daniel?" Interesting. She said darkness instead of the dark. Could be nothing, but my senses were on high alert and I was remembering what Deat said about trusting that.

"Darkness, or the dark. I'm not scared of either but it's easier see with at least some light." I had no idea if this would work but I figured I might as well see what I could do if I needed . I opened my left hand and asked Gaia for some starlight. I could feel a humming sensation and a ball of blue-white light appeared a above my palm and shone around Ingrid and me. I heard scuffling and soft hissing. "My apologies your friends, seems they mind the light far more than I mind the dark, but this will make easier for us chat, don't you agree?" She was not happy but wasn't much she could do about . I was actually quite impressed it had worked. "Why are you here in the dark, Ingrid, and what else did your tell you about me?" was worth a try. Silence.

"I like the dark, Daniel. soothes me and helps me think." I told her helped me sleep. She sneered. "I'm still waiting for you tell me how you found me here. No one else knows about this place." I laughed, which made her angry and was exactly what I wanted see. "Why are you laughing at me?"

"I'm not laughing and you Ingrid, I'm laughing at what you said. Surely you are aware that Gaia would know, and I suspect others as well. As for how I got here, I seriously don't have a clue. I'm wondering how I get back. wouldn't be a door around here, would ?"

"I don't believe in Gaia and is no door."

"Really, even Marnine believes in Gaia. She is going be spending a very long time with her but you needn't worry, Ingrid, your mom is quite comfortable, albeit lonely. She's asked me keep visiting her so that we can continue our chats." I was very curious how she would respond that.

"You've been with my ? How is she?"

"She's fine Ingrid. She's heading toward contrition but it's a lengthy process apparently. She regrets how she raised you, and the things she taught you, but isn't much she can do about that now. I found her in much the way I found you; I stumbled upon her. I was quite surprised because I hadn't been thinking about her."

"Does that mean you were thinking about me?" I nodded. "I'm flattered." I told her she shouldn't be because it wasn't a social . "Why, then?"

"I'm trying figure out why you want us dead. Roan and Jaak, even his dad...especially his ... are easy understand, but not you. Your motives are more opaque. I can understand some of from my conversations with Marnine but I didn't even know you existed until recently, so imagine my surprise when she told me you're her ." I wanted her head spin and make her wonder what I knew, and what Marnine was telling me. She hissed, so I must have a nerve.

"What did my tell you?" She was seething. "Tell me!" I turned and started looking around. "How dare you turn your back on me?" I could feel energy rising into me from Gaia as I turned toward her, my right hand outstretched. Ingrid's face was distorted and looked like was an overlay of something, but I couldn't make out. She pushed both her palms outward at me as she mumbled something I couldn't make out. The impact of the energy was intense but my palm and the energy Gaia sent and faded. She stared at me in disbelief as I walked up her. She was uncertain what do. I stopped a foot away from her.

"Why are you trying to kill us, Ingrid?" She was about to say something when I was yanked back into my body. I felt like a fricking fish on a line. I opened my eyes and everyone was staring at me. Everyone but Ama, and Sara, was worried; they were pissed. I sat up and shook my head while I looked at my left palm, wondering if could do that whenever I wanted.

"WHAT THE DO YOU THINK YOU WERE DOING? Have you entirely lost your mind? Do you have any clue where you were, Daniel?"

"I was trying get information out of Ingrid but answer your question, no, I haven't a clue except was dark. I figured I'd go back where I went last time." Sara huffed, snorted, and screamed as she stomped down the hill and into the house. We could hear the door slam clear as day. I looked at Ama and said, "I guess she's upset." Ama smiled as everyone shook their heads and went to on Sara.

"She is upset, Daniel, and with good reason. You stumbled into someplace that you weren't prepared for, a place of great negativity and darkness. She was scared for you."

"Well, I guess that explains why they didn't like the light I asked Gaia for. Ingrid pushed some sort of energy at me after I pissed her off by turning my back on her." Ama laughed. "I could sense something and could feel Gaia sending me energy. I wasn't thinking, I just acted and turned with my right palm outstretched. It looked like was some other being either in her, or around her, and then she pushed the energy toward me.

"What happened?"

"It my palm and dissipated. Ingrid was shocked and uneasy as I walked up her and that is when I got yanked back here. I was actually glad because I wasn't exactly sure how get back because I hadn't planned on going in the first place." Ama was quiet for a bit as I stood up and stretched.

"Don't push toward Ingrid with your intent until you and I work on it. Let Gaia lead you where she wants. I know that you are very much like your totem, and prefer to go your own way, but you are starting to deal with things that are unfamiliar to you, and that can be dangerous. I'm giving you one final pill for tonight to see where Gaia leads you. Let's go in. It's getting chilly and I have a lot to ponder." I nodded because I needed to hug Sara and tell her that I was fine, and I was sorry.

It was nice to see the girls blowing off the stress and concern they felt. I didn't take the threat of Roan, or Ingrid, lightly but I was more concerned with the potential shooters that we couldn't see. We could deal with Roan and Jaak, and so far Ingrid was behind the scenes trying to orchestrate things. If their plan was actually what I heard then they had a bit too much beer because we would all die protecting those who couldn't shift, and we'd all be pissed. Only Annie, and maybe Chloe, had been to the place in Norway so none of us had any sense of the terrain, let alone the dynamics at play other than what Annie and Ama could share. There didn't seem much that we could do except maybe me if I kept visiting places while I slept. It was frustrating to be sure and could feel Annie getting antsy to get outside and do something, and that was when Melissa walked up to me.

"We need to talk Daniel, now." She walked outside as I looked at Annie and help a finger saying give me a minute. "I will do whatever it takes to keep Sara safe, Daniel, even if it means killing Annie's sister. I want that to be clear." I knew she was concerned, and angry that anyone would threaten Sara, especially since she was pregnant, and Sara was Melissa's primary concern but all the girls, and Jake, were under threat. The best thing I could do was to listen and share her concern and reassure her that none of us would let anything happen to Sara.

"I understand that Melissa, we all understand that, especially Annie. There is no love lost between her and Roan. She is Annie's sister and Annie doesn't want to be bothered with this bullshit, but if Roan attempts to hurt anyone she will pay a very heavy price, none of us want to kill anyone but we will if we have to in order to protect our family. Like I told Sara, there is nothing we can do about any of that while we are here so it's in our best interest to prepare and relax as much as we can. It won't do us any good if we are all stressed out when we get to Norway next week. Enjoy the time you have with Sara, love." She was quiet, nodded, and hugged me. We walked back inside and Annie walked up as Melissa went to Sara.

"We need to chop wood, mister." She grabbed my wrist and pulled me outside, so much for lunch, good thing I didn't have breakfast. "What did Melissa want?" I told her pretty much what she thought." She'll kill Roan if she has to." I nodded. Annie nodded. Mind if I chop? I haven't chopped wood for a long time and I want both my body and mind exhausted." She looked at me with tears welling in her eyes. "This starting to heavily on me Daniel and I'm having a difficult time. I hugged her as she melted into me. It broke my heart that she was carrying such a burden.

"Annie, there are four of us getting married. We are going to be a family and share responsibilities. There is also the rest of our family that you can draw on but that rests with you, Love. You have to allow us to help you instead of trying to do everything by yourself because these burdens are too heavy. You need let us help you, sweets."

"You mean like you need to let us help you instead of carrying all the weight alone?"

"We aren't talking about me, missy." We both smiled. Annie kissed me as I grabbed the ax and handed it to her. I had the greater upper body strength but she definitely had the better technique. It was obvious that she had chopped a lot more wood than I had. I couldn't help but smile, and I loved watching her as I stacked what she chopped. I could feel her letting go of stress and starting to revel in the release of intense physical exercise. Neither of us spoke because we both wanted to be exhausted, both our bodies and our brains. We had been working for a couple of hours when all the girls, except Ama, came out with a picnic basket, and several bottles of mead. They were all smiling. Sara walked up to Annie, kissed her, took the ax away, and handed it to me.

"We all decided that you two are finished for the day, put your jackets on and sit down. we're having a picnic. It's almost impossible to say no to Sara, especially when she's right. Neither of us could help but smile because it was exactly what Annie and I needed but also what the rest of them needed. Our family was the core of our strength. It's why I was less concerned about Roan and Ingrid's plans. They had no concept of what we shared together. It was like the adage about being able to break a single stick but not being to break a bundle of them; together we were that bundle.

Everyone but Chloe took Annie inside with them. They were so cute together and I could imagine all of them as teens.... teens drinking mead. Chloe hugged me and wouldn't let go because Sara was her little sister, Janey's too, and they were scared but even more angry than Sara was, as they should be.

"Are you going to kill them, Daniel? I speak for Jane's as well, they are fucking with our baby sister, and our and . I don't want to be around when Christine and Bethany find out. They'll rip them apart with their bare hands, and we'll help." I wasn't exactly looking forward to dealing with Christine and Bethany either. I doubt either Roan, or Ingrid, had thought through threatening a mother's , or a sister. You just don't do that.

"If I have to Chloe. Any of us will, if we have to, let's hope we don't." She nodded and picked up the ax.

"Annie seemed to really like chopping wood. You both did, and Jake as well. I don't see why."

"It's not easy. It's a skill like any other and Annie is way better than me, I have no idea about Jake. It's like any strenuous exercise in that it tires out your body, and your mind, but it also requires tremendous focus because you can get seriously hurt if you don't. It's what both of us needed."

"Will you teach me?" I nodded but told her to ask Annie first because she had been doing it a lot longer. I finished stacking the wood and put the ax in the shed as we walked back to the house. I told Chloe that I was going to push and see what I could see. She nodded. I walked up the hill and looked around. I could see why Ama lived here. I hoped I lived as long as she had although the world was becoming a vastly different one from what she knew.

I pushed out to the edge of the property in all directions at once, which was a first, and it was easy. There was nothing of concern. I pushed to Reykjavik and it was the same so I pushed outward to include the entire island, and it worked. I held it and started to scan because I hadn't seen much of it, but I wanted to. I was hoping I could run one night before we left but I doubt I'd be able to. I focused on Ingrid, rooted myself in Gaia, and pushed toward her, nothing happened. I figured it was too far, or I was too unfamiliar with her energy. I started to walk back to the house I got a blinding headache and everything turned black and engulfed me. I hit the ground, hard, as Ingrid was standing over me and smiling.

Ama and I were at the house when Sara came bursting outside, saw us, marched over, grabbed my hand, and pulled me after her. "We're talking mister." I could see Ama smile before Sara dragged me away. "What are you going to Daniel?" She was as mad as I had ever seen her, not at me per se, just in general, and more than a little scared. She grabbed my wrist and put my hand on her belly. "This is our baby, Daniel. This is your baby and they want it gone because she is inside of me, that is unacceptable." I had never seen her like this. She could get mad but that wasn't what this was. She wanted them dead but didn't know how to do it. She wanted them dead for us but also everyone else.

"I'm not going to let them hurt you, Sara. We aren't going to let them hurt any of you. I'll figure out a way to keep you and Ama safe, and then we'll deal with Roan and Ingrid. Now it's best that try and enjoy the peacefulness of this place, and do what Ama wants us to do, and try not to worry." She stopped, hugged me, bit my shoulder, and walked me back to the house.

"Chloe and Janey are pissed, just so know." It was everything I could do to keep from laughing. It was a pretty big promise and I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to keep all of those balls in the air. I needed to call Deat and Javier but then I wanted to chop wood and spend time with the girls. I missed them. Denver seemed such a long time ago. Hell, Japan seemed such a long time ago. I stopped as Sara looked up at me and smiled. She was back to her usual self. I kissed her and told her to tell everyone I'd be in shortly, and why. She nodded and kissed me again.

"Deat, you have a few minutes to talk."

"Let me call you on our dime."

"I was just thinking about you. I emailed you the information we found on your in-laws." He laughed. "Quite the vipers' nest you're walking into, at least as far Jaak and his father go. I couldn't find anything on Ingrid, and hardly anything on Roan, but my sense is that you didn't need any validation on them. We ran up against a brick wall on the guys you dealt with, which is fucking odd. The more I thought about things the more I stopped thinking this was some government-sanctioned black op. It makes no sense. What does make sense is that you either screwed up Mr. Finland's operation one too many times, or he's helping his get you out of the way, or both. Interpol tracked down the company that shipped the vans to Iceland, and guess what?"

"It's a ghost."

"Pretty much, it's all dead ends. Every one of us thinks Jaak's father, and possibly Jaak, are high up in the EU arm of what Gustav was running in the states. We're all like sharks and there is blood in the water. My friend, and his team, are going after this guy hard. They are also going after anyone connected with him, something will fall out pretty soon. See if you can find out if Jaak is in Norway because his father is nowhere to be found, but he has a lot of money which means a lot of places, to stay." I didn't want to mention the place in the forest because I was going to pay him a visit after Javier's guy got through, and I figured out where it was.

"Have them check for estates in Germany. It would be large, and isolated, and may be listed under a shell company. He probably has sources inside the police there like he does in Finland."

"Another dream?" I told him something like that.

"I need your insight on something, Deat. If you were a sniper, and you had targets at a wedding, would position yourself the day before, or the morning of?" He was quiet.

"Is this a hypothetical?" I didn't say anything. "Shit, I was afraid of that. Either the evening before, or before dawn the day of. If they're good they would have scoped out the site and picked a location several days prior. I'm guessing that they'll have highly accurate intel. The problem from your end is that he/they could be up to six hundred out depending on the terrain and if there's a spotter, and if they're good. I would have a backup shooter just in case. This is a hard thing to stop, brother."

"Yeah, I figured you'd say something like that.. I'll let you know if I get anything else but focus on Germany. I think they are starting back up there because Finland is too hot now. I want you guys to take these assholes down, Deat."

"You're preaching to the choir. You watch your back Daniel because I'm guessing there isn't a way to postpone things to get them off guard."

"No, and even if we could the fox is in the hen house. I appreciate the info. Say hi to the girls for us. I'll work something out. We've been through worse. I need to go because I have pissed-off women waiting for me." He laughed but only said goodbye because there was nothing that could be said. It was a fucked up situation waiting to happen. I called Javier.

"Hey homes, nothing yet but you have a dedicated group of highly pissed-off hackers. I would not want to be these guys."

"Good, I hope they make them bleed money before sending them to jail so they can enjoy their final years in agony. I have some places for them to look into, nothing specific but they are starting up the operation at an estate in Germany. It would have to be large, and private, so that means lots of land. There is a similar estate in Finland that I think they were using but Interpol is crawling up their asses so they shifted to Germany. Have them see if they can find the place in Finland. I think it's middle of the country and to the north, closer to the ocean. It'd be very isolated but within driving distance of a decent size town. It'll probably be owned by a company. There can't be that many large estates in Finland."

"I'll let them know. Bet's not here so we'll call later and talk with the girls. We miss you guys." I told him that we missed them as well and hung up, took a breath, and walked inside. It was like nothing had happened. Everyone was laughing and teasing each other. Ama was smiling and shaking her head. Chloe and Taiiko walked up and kissed me at the same time then laughed before they went back into the kitchen. Annie was staring at me but smiling. It was hard not to smile. I felt like I was losing my mind, and that was when I saw the mead on the table.

It took me a few seconds to realize that I wasn't asleep, so much for Ama's herbs. I wasn't quite sure what was going on except that I couldn't see a thing and wasn't sure if I was stationary, or moving. I burst into a room without warning so I guessed I was moving, at least I didn't pass out. I was back with Jaak's father only this time he was speaking with someone else. It looked to be his office and it sounded like the person on the phone was either an employee or a partner.

"We can't use this house for a while because I've got Interpol snooping around. No, it's something different, personal, they don't know about the operation here. The one in the states is on ice for the time being, which is a shame because it was very lucrative. Open the estate in Germany and send notifications to everyone letting them know. It'll be fine because I have people on the inside there just like I do here. We all want this running again before someone else steps in to fill the void so start the process and keep me informed."

He poured himself another drink and start putting the folders he had back into the desk but it looked odd. I willed myself to move closer so I could see better but I shot out the wall into the backyard. Shit. I focused on him and was back where I had been, this was going to be a pain. He walked over to a wall, pushed, and a closet opened. There was a wall safe and what looked like a large gun safe off to the side. He stood in front of the safe so I couldn't see but it seemed that put some sort of drive in it, was involved in what Gustav was. At least I knew where some things were. I wasn't sure how long I'd be there so I pushed myself up and went through the roof. I wanted to get high enough so I could get my bearings to see if I could figure out where he was on a map. I had no idea if it would work but it was worth try. There was nothing but forest for as far I could see. It was a full moon so it easy to see but there was nothing around him but trees.

It was a clear night so I found the North star and oriented myself. I pushed myself toward the west to see what would happen, which was a huge mistake. I couldn't see anything because I was moving so fast that it was all a blur. I was getting dizzy when I forced myself to stop. Holy Crap, I sure wished I had a user manual. I was on the coast and I could see lights off to my right, which would be north. I wanted to go there but something had other plans for me because I was jerked to God knows where. I sure hoped my body was sleeping because I was going to be exhausted. I ended up in Roan's room, I presumed, and she and Ingrid were drinking beer in the bathtub. I hoped I didn't have to do this every night.

"Iceland is over Roan. They screwed their chance. My brother said the operatives were skilled but that obviously wasn't the case. The last chance is at the ceremony because Ama will be next to your mom..."

"Hold on, you never said anything about Ma'. I thought we were going to focus on Anryd."

"Miriam is irrelevant. Ama, Sara, and Daniel are the ones we need to worry about. With them gone the others will be devastated and if we have Daniel's and then she will do what we want. You can pressure your sister to do what we want. She'd be a leader in name only. Ama will be in the open but Sara will be in the circle and protected, as will the others. Fucking things up in Iceland has made things exponentially harder, but we can still make this work."

"Why can't we just kill them before the ceremony and be done with it?"

"We will be seizing power and control not only of your clans but moving on all of them. We need to show force and brutality, so they know what we will do. We also have to destroy the "prophecy' myth because it is beginning to take root with the people and if it does then it's over for us. Marnine was adamant about that. The only way we achieve is by devastating them, and watching Sara and Daniel die in front of their eyes will do just that. If we have to kill all of them then so be it. Seizing power is messy love, and people die."

Fuck! I got flung back into the bedroom with such force that I thought I was going to roll down the hall and into the living room. How in the hell was I going to sleep after..... I woke up around 11 am, again. The girls were gone and I was getting tired of these recent changes. I brushed, dressed, and went into the kitchen to find them all staring at me, all except Jake, the lucky . Chloe spoke.

"You were thrashing around a lot last night, Daniel, what happened?" I poured some coffee and took a sip. I wanted to down the whole cup but I valued my throat. I filled them in on Jaak's father but that was more for me to deal with. They were paying rapt attention as I shared what Roan and Ingrid said. They were beyond sickened, and scared until I told them about Jake and Emily and all of the feelings they had coalesced into rage. It would be a miracle if I could keep them from flying to Norway and ripping both Roan and Ingrid into pieces. Ama spoke to all of us.

"Just because they are hatching these plans doesn't mean they will be successful, especially since we know they are up to this. There is nothing we can do, now, because there is no proof, but we can prepare. The longer we stay here, the more they will worry because plans always sound good when you make them but they rarely work out as you planned them. As hard as it is dear ones, the best thing all of you can do is continue connecting with Gaia and working with her. Being calm, and focused, when we get to Norway will be one of our greatest strengths. You already demonstrated that you are not easy to kill. Don't borrow trouble. I need to speak with Daniel and then you can pummel him with more questions." They all laughed as they let go of their rage, mostly, and I poured more coffee. I grabbed my jacket and followed Ama outside. I'm missed spending time with my family.

"I don't underestimate either Roan or Ingrid, especially not Ingrid because Marnine poisoned her soul. Thankfully she doesn't have the power that Marnine had or the abilities, but she is still a real threat. Roan is a danger because of her proximity but her and Jaak are so blinded by power that they will likely be their own undoing. It doesn't mean they can't cause damage though, but I am more interested in how you moved around. Be as specific as possible."

I told her how going to Jaak's father was totally different than Roan and Ingrid, and back to the bedroom. The last two were me being jerked around again, but going to Finland was as if I was controlling it. I thought and then I was there but when I willed myself to move I went through the wall, ceiling, and then getting dizzy because I was moving so fast."

"Did you think about Finland before you went to sleep?" I told her not consciously. "Interesting, Daniel, and a bit surprising. We are going to have to add something to our work even though you are beating me to it. Those of us like Ella, Joseph, and Claire are able to move through time and space and appear where we want to be. It's how Joseph is able to be sitting on a table when you turn on the light." I smiled. "What happened when you went to Finland sounds like that even though you were unaware of it, to begin with. It seems that you have the ability while you are alive. When it happens again, because it will, focus and work on controlling it but don't use your will, it's too strong and a bit unbridled, that is why you are going to work with Yoshi. Use your thoughts and focus on refining them. You have the ability already, you just need to practice using it. You did that when you ended up by the ocean and became dizzy. It's challenging because you aren't certain where you need to go so trust Gaia. I know you want to spend time with your family, just as they do with you, but there is too much to do especially with you and Sara. You have the rest of today and part of tomorrow but then you will be gone for a period of time because you need to visit Gaia and I have no idea how long that will take."

I stared at her but had no clue what to even ask, so I drank my coffee as we walked back to the house. "I will talk with you tomorrow about it Daniel. Enjoy your day, but we need more wood chopped."

I fell asleep thinking about Ingrid and visualizing her . I wasn't sure what to expect because these pills were supposed to keep from dreaming, or any other odd things, but it seemed that maybe the opposite was going to be happening. I'd deal with what I had to if I could glean useful information to help us. I never felt Taiiko and Chloe come in and kiss me goodnight.

I had no idea what time it was, or long I had been sleeping, when I realized that I was dreaming, at least I thought I was dreaming. It was becoming difficult to tell the difference. I wasn't being jerked around, so that was a good thing. I wasn't exactly sure where I was but I suspected it was Norway. I was in an old forest and walking as the bear. I liked it because I felt at home. The trees were friendly, which is an odd thing to say but not all of them are, just as some people aren't. The Japanese their spirits Kami and sometimes they can be quite formidable, even the tree spirits. I felt comfortable here, and I loved the smells and walking upon ancient ground, but it wasn't why I was here. I shifted back. I still had the enhanced senses, which was helpful because it was getting dark. I noticed a glow ahead and walked toward it. I walked into a clearing and saw Sara was seated by a fire, which was strange. She smiled, but she was worried for some reason. I asked what she was doing here but she couldn't speak. She just stared at me intently and I could feel her worry growing. She stood up and motioned for me to follow her and she walked off in the opposite direction, as we left the clearing the fire went and we were in darkness.

We walked about a hundred yards through the forest when we came to another clearing, larger than the first. She stopped and turned toward me now she wasn't worried, she was scared. Her fear was palpable. She pointed to the ground in front of her and motioned for to sit, and close my eyes. I could feel her stepping backward as I felt a shudder . I opened my eyes and that is when the ground opened and I fell. I had no idea how far, or for how long, but I landed with a thud and rolled down a bank onto moss. I suppose that'll teach for opening my eyes when Sara said to close them. I was totally confused, and disoriented, and had absolutely no idea where I was. I could feel eyes upon It was lighter here than in the forest, which seemed odd because I fell into the Earth. I was totally confused, like usual. I tried to shift back to the bear but couldn't. Great! I was fully expecting the Cheshire Cat to materialize but this wasn't Wonderland. If was I right this was where Gaia took Marnine, but why would I be here when I focused on Ingrid and that is when Marnine walked of the shadows.

" Love, miss ? You're my first visitor, actually, you're my visitor." She walked up and took my hand. "Don't be nervous Daniel, I mean you no harm, and I couldn't even if I wanted to. Gaia has me on a pretty tight leash. I forgot that she doesn't have much of a sense of humor. Follow me, I'll take you to my home. You'll be more comfortable there while we talk. You are here to talk with me, aren't you?" No matter, I could use the company regardless." We walked for about five minutes and I could feel many beings following me, us.


"Yes, Love."

"Who, or what is following us?"

"Interesting that you can sense them so quickly, that's part of why you are so intriguing to us. Ama doesn't know if she should be grateful, or nervous. There are many beings that inhabit the upper realms that aid Gaia but they are of different energy, frequency of sorts, so they are hidden from most people. If you can feel them then you will likely be able to see them at some point. They come into being here, and come back to be renewed and nurtured by Gaia, much as a comes home when they are lonely and missing home."

"Or when they need laundry done." She laughed.

"Exactly! They are quite curious about you because you are not like most humans. You are odd, which is a good thing here. They are shy, and skittish until they trust you. They are just beginning to trust me. Come, love, we are almost there and we can sit, have tea, and talk about why came here." Marnine was completely different than she was in Denver, and especially when I sent her to Gaia. It was as if she was grateful. "I am grateful Daniel, very grateful. Sit, and I'll make us some elderberry tea." For being confined, this was pretty nice. There was a small cottage, a garden, and an orchard with a brook running through it. There were flashes of light bouncing all around the plants and trees. I walked over and sat on the ground and reached my hands out, at first there was nothing but very quickly the flashes started darting around me, some buzzing me. I thought I could hear very -pitched laughter. A couple of them jumped on and off of my hands. I wasn't sure if they were playing or just being inquisitive, but it made smile. I slowly stood and turned to find Marnine smiling . I started thinking that if she hadn't tried to , and the girls, I might have been friends with her. I sat down and she poured us tea.

We enjoyed our tea in silence when she finally said, "They like you and they are both playful, and inquisitive. Most of the creatures, and beings, in the myths, and stories, in your world, can be found here. Gaia is quite expansive. These help with the garden, and the orchard, as part of their training for the upper realms. It is very helpful because I am not very good nurturing things, yet, as you might imagine." Marnine was quiet and seemed sad. "Do you hate me, Daniel?" I was totally taken aback and didn't know how to respond so I was quiet for a while. She waited in silence.

"I don't hate you Marnine. I never hated you. I didn't like you very much but hate never factored into it. Why do you ask?"

"Because I have done many things to be ashamed but I am most upset about the ways I treated you."

"And the girls..." She smiled.

" working on that Love but it takes time. Luckily I have an over-abundance of that here." We both laughed as she poured more tea for us. "So, you have come to discuss Ingrid." I nodded. "I know it was surprising to find yourself here but I know as much about Ingrid as anyone could because she is my ." I almost dropped the cup and spit my tea as she chuckled. "Not my biological , of course, more like and Emily, of Jake. Sadly, I killed her parents when she was an infant and felt remorseful, which was unusual for . I took care of her and raised her as my own."

"Does she know that you killed her true parents?"

"Of course not Daniel, and please don't tell her, trusting you to keep this between us. not asking to spare but to spare her because she has ever known as her ."

"Does she know who you are?"

"Yes, It is hard to hide who I am, or was. Sadly, I raised her when I was very.... mean and spiteful... and that rubbed off. I didn't mind that until you sent me here, now I am beginning to see what I set in motion. She is very much like me but without the power and abilities, at least for now. She is very resourceful. You are wise to treat her as the threat. Roan, and her imbecile fiance, are a danger because they are ruthless and devious, but Ingrid is smart and focused, and has no feelings."

"Why are telling me this? You know I will stop them if they attempt to hurt my family, even if it means ending all of them. I will keep my family safe, period." Marnine smiled.

"Joseph would be proud. I am aware of what you would do to protect them. I am beginning to see things differently since I have been here. Don't misunderstand, I am a work in progress and I still despise Annie for who she is, and who she will become, with your help, but I am beginning to see that I backed the wrong sister and the wrong path for the clans. I can do nothing to change that except to help you and I know you don't trust me, you would be foolish too, but I can't lie here. Gaia doesn't allow such things in her presence."

She looked up and nodded as she took my hand, "Come, love, I must take you back to the place where you arrived. Time works differently here. Time up there moves much faster than here so you've been here quite a while. You can visit again and I'll share more with you, at least I hope you will because there is much that I can help you understand. I did live a long time up there. Here we are. I am very impressed with Sara, very! Who knew she had such power? It just goes to show you that should never judge a by its cover. Don't fret, love, I am working on the others but it takes time. I hated for a very long time." She smiled but I could feel the depth of her sadness. "I must go but I do hope you come back and visit. I so enjoy your company." She kissed my cheek and walked away before turning back.

"Gaia brought you and she can send you back. Your journey this night is not over, but you need rest until the next part begins. I shall forward to your return." She was gone and I was back in bed. I opened my eyes and could hear the girls gently breathing as they snuggled together. I rolled over, touched Chloe's back, and fell into a deep and restful sleep. I hoped it lasted longer this time.

Annie and I climbed the hill, which would be considered nothing in Colorado but here it was ground, least on Ama's property. It didn't take long and I could feel that Annie was stressed. She turned, hugged , buried her head in my chest, and started to cry. I just held
her until she stopped and then wiped away the tears and sat down. She did as well and leaned against my chest as I wrapped my arms around her and started rubbing her belly.

" scared, Daniel. We don't know exactly who we are fighting and there's nothing to tie any of what's happened back to Roan, Jaak, or Ingrid. There's not enough for us to do anything, even with our laws, let alone yours. Jesus, Interpol, and the FBI can't even do anything, and neither can we unless they provoke us. We have to keep the most important people in our lives safe, and we have to do that while doing meet and greet's with people I barely know. I'd walk away from this in an instant and live on Osaka, or in Denver, or at Ama's, but I can't, and neither can you now. What are we going to do Daniel?"

" going to chop wood, and going to run, and explore, and work with Ama, and whatever else is needed until we leave, and I suggest that you do something similar, Love. We can't figure the future Annie, even I can figure how to glimpse it, it won't play like that. It never does so there's no sense stressing over it. The thing we can do is plan as best we can and then adapt because change will be a certainty. Are there people your mom's that you trust implicitly?" She nodded. " them and have them watch Roan and Jaak and see if they can figure who is standing by them because they have people on their side. There are always power-hungry people. Then we try and plan for contingencies." I didn't want to bring up that if all they wanted was to us all they'd need to do is poison or food. I figured that was best left in my head.

"Can we help with the wood?"

"Do you know how to use an ax?" She turned around and looked at in disgust then pinched .

"I grew up in Norway, Daniel. What do you think?"

"Oh yeah, I forgot." She laughed as she pushed herself into .

"You're an asshole but, Gaia help , I love you. Thank you. I feel better."

"Good." We sat in silence listening to the wind and feeling the cold air. I could feel the girls walk outside as I closed my eyes. I was going to enjoy the time we'd be with Ama.

"Where are they?"

"They're on that hill, Chloe, waiting for us even though they don't know it yet."

"How do you know they're up there, Sara? Ama has lots of land. They could be anywhere."

"I know a lot of things, sis, but I can feel them. They're up there. Annie is better but needs us." Sara started walking as everyone just looked at each other before following her. She got to the top walked around the rocks, smiled, and sat next to us as she hugged Annie who collapsed into her. The rest of the girls did the same and shook their heads before gang hugging Annie, who was laughing as if she was being tickled. Melissa stood there. I reached out my hand and she smiled as she scrunched next to me, holding my hand and watching the mound of sisters laughing. I leaned to her and said they had lost their minds. She laughed and nodded. not sure how long we stayed like that but the sun was starting to go down, and it was getting cold so we walked back down to the house.

Jake was starting a fire and Chloe, Janey and Sara went to watched and tell him how impressed they were since Emily was in the kitchen with Ama. Annie, Taiiko, Melissa, and Alison huddled on the couch and talked. I smiled before I went into the kitchen. It was nice to see them all acting as they use to in Denver, with the exception of Taiiko, but she would have fit right in. Em ran up and jumped on me, smiling.

"You're becoming quite the cook lady. beyond impressed now you care to tell what this Top Secret stuff is that the three of you are doing?" She jumped down and shook her head as Sara yelled, "She can't you tell you nosy Nellie." Emily smiled and went back to help Ama. I asked Ama what I could do. She looked at and said nothing. I walked into the sunroom and called Bet and Javier. I needed to call Sam and Maggie, and Henry, but that would need to wait.

"Hey, stranger. How are things? putting you on speaker."

"Hey guys, about what you'd expect, things are trying to slide sideways. How are things with you and the munchkins?

"We're good and they're great. They, and Sam and Maggie's girls, have decided to adopt Bob. They visit him almost every . We're considering putting up a tent." We all laughed because everyone loved Bob. "We have to tell them every that even though Bob is cute and pretty tame, and he is use to us, he's still a fox and he has very sharp teeth but neither of us thinks they listen."

"Probably not. How are Sam and Henry with the shop?" "They're fine. They're like an old married couple, it's pretty funny to watch but they've got it covered, and Mags is doing great with the customer side. She loves it and is great at it. Sabrina has come up with some great ideas and drawings for Henry's and the shopping center. Things are coming together. You should go away more often. How are the girls?"

"We're all hanging in there. It's been kinda bumpy but we've got a break for about a week, or so, until the fun really starts. It's part of why I called. I need to have some people checked out, as much as possible. Can you see if your hacker friends can do a full background search on them, and how much they need?"


"Yeah, they are coming at us and it's going to get worse. I've been able to deal so far but it's going to get crunchy in Norway and I'd like to have as much insight as possible. I think one of them might be the EU counterpart to Gustav, He's a nasty piece of work for sure. If he is I want to take him down and would be fine gutting his finances too. This doesn't involve the US as far as I know so you'd be clear. He's going to for trying to hurt the girls but if we could bankrupt him, and whoever else is involved, that would be icing." I gave them the names and info i had, which wasn't much.

"We'll now, Jefe, but watch your back. We'll you tomorrow, fill you in, and talk with the girls. We miss all of you." I told them likewise and hung up. I called Lieve and got the voicemail again and told her to call when she could. I missed her. I walked back into the house and just watch as the girls were laughing and having fun like they didn't have a care in the world. I was glad and wanted that to continue until we left because Norway was going to be stressful, to say the least. Hopefully, Bet and Javier's guys could get some info that would be helpful. I set the table as Emily and Ama finished dinner. I was fine doing dishes if they cooked. Ama looked at me.

"You seem like you have something to ask, Daniel." I nodded.

"I know what I said earlier, but can I have another pill tonight? I need to see if I can get more information because time is running ." She stared and said she think about it. I nodded. The girls brought their merriment to the table and dinner became a laugh-fest and a total joy. Ama brought out some mead which made things even more fun because none of us had ever had it. It was a wonderful meal. Taiiko, Chloe, and I cleaned up and did the dishes while the rest sat in front of the fire hugging each other and laughing. They were all a more than tipsy. Ama handed a pill and said it was a sound idea but to focus. I nodded as Chloe and Taiiko looked . I kissed both of them and said goodnight. I didn't want to shift the energy in the living room so I went into the bedroom. I finally wised up and took the pill when I was already in bed. It like before. I focused on Ingrid as Ama suggested, but I was in no way expecting what would happen.

I thought I had moved past falling unconscious when the headaches came. I hadn't but it was mostly an annoyance to me, because I had a hard head, but it worried the girls and I didn't want that. They helped me up and Ama poured me another cup of coffee. It still couldn't finish a full cup of anything. I sat in between Jake and Emily because they were really worried, luckily neither saw me last night. I told them everything I experienced as Ama was staring a hole through me. It really wasn't all that much that we hadn't surmised already except for this Ingrid woman, that was a surprising wrinkle. Annie was looking at me too.

"How did you know to go to Ingrid?"

"I didn't. I was being jerked around. I expected to sleep through the night like yesterday and then I was watching, and listening, to Jaak's father until he hung up and then whoosh, I was looking at her talking with your sister, and then I got jerked back to the room and I was following me around here. I'm not really sure how he/me even knew any of that since I was bouncing around behind him. It was a weird night and meaning no disrespect Ama I think I'll pass on taking those pills anytime soon. I'm fine with being the first one up." They all laughed.

"Roan and Ingrid went to school together, they were lovers, and apparently still are. They were best friends if you can call it that. Ingrid's mom was from Norway, but her dad was Finnish, and her brother was in the army, and it seems that he still is even though he's using his position in illegal ways it seems. I hadn't thought of her for many years. There would be no way for you to know anything about her, that was why I was so taken aback last night. You are a bit odd Daniel, but that was kinda over the top in weirdness. So what do we do?"

"We do what Ella and Joseph told us to do, stay here, work with Ama, and enjoy the change of seasons although I'm not really sure how you'd tell since there aren't an awful lot of leaves around. I'm going to chop wood and try to catch up with my . I doubt I can but it'll feel good to sweat and not think about all of this." They all took turns hugging and kissing me as Jake and I went outside and he showed me where the ax, and maul were. He headed off to do chores as Ama, Sara, and Emily came outside and wandered off. I got to work. I'd been chopping and stacking for about two hours and, even though I was warm because of it, it was definitely starting to get colder so Annie and Chloe were a welcome distraction as they brought out tea and cookies. They were always a welcome distraction but even more so when they had cookies. I smiled, wiped my face on my shirt, and took a break.

Chloe spoke first, "Are you regretting falling in love with us Daniel?" I nodded as she looked at me stunned even though Annie was smiling. I finished chewing.

"Of course not goofball, in for a penny, in for a pound. I'd walk through hell with all of you, I'd rather not, but I would. She came and sat on my lap and bit my shoulder before saying good. "You startled us last night because it was like you were almost possessed. Ama said you weren't, that it was similar to sleepwalking, but it still freaked us out." Taiiko came out and scrunched next to Annie and grabbed a cookie. It was nice how quickly all the girls had taken to one another. They were definitely sisters.

"I called Yoshi, and you were right about that too, everything is fine. He's upped the security patrols and is having a gate put at the entrance to the mill, along with motion detectors like you suggested. He talked with the prominent family leaders of the clan about all this and they were all shocked and surprised." I looked at her because my thought was, "what else would they say," when she smiled because she had read my mind. "Don't worry Love, he's taking it all with a grain of salt. They are figuring out what to do with my cousin because it warrants punishment. I said he should be banished because of what he was attempting to do, sorry just doesn't cut it. He'll keep us updated but he's more than capable of dealing with the situation."

"It seems that you have quite the following among the women, Daniel. Kana has been singing your praises since we left. Apparently, you, and your nakedness, made quite the impression and they can't wait for us to come back. Why I'm not exactly sure unless they think they'll somehow be able to catch a glimpse." All three of them started laughing as I shook my head and grabbed another cookie and more tea. I was getting chilled because I had stopped working but I'd deal because I missed them even though it had only been twenty-four hours.

"What's wrong Annie? I can feel it so please don't pretend."

"I'm worried about the ceremony. My mom has never stood up to Roan, Da' always did that, so we can't count on her controlling the situation. It's all going to land on us, along with everything else. This is a huge deal, Love, and it has many components over several days culminating in the ceremony. There will be many chances for them to attack us, together and alone, and that's not even mentioning the potential collateral damage because there will be so many guests in attendance. There will be members from each of the families of the clans we represent. You and I will be expected to meet with each of them which means we will be unavailable to help protect the others. Ama said that she is dealing with that because my mom won't."

"Knowing both Roan and Ingrid, I suspect that they will want to make whatever they have in their twisted minds a public spectacle to inflict as much shock as possible. I think they believe that if they kill me that title moves to Roan, but it doesn't work like that, especially if she's the one who killed me. It stays with mom. I think they will try to just seize power in the ensuing chaos. I could be wrong but given what we'll be up against with the guests, we can't plan for all the possibilities, so unless you are able to travel around at night and get new information, I think our best option is to be on guard but figure they will come at us during the ceremony." Everyone was quiet.

"Well if that's all you're concerned about then I'm going to chop some more wood," and smiled. I walked up, squatted in front of her, and held her hands. "We're all worried, Love, but I know it weighs more heavily on you because Roan is your sister. We'll deal with what we have too." I kissed her, Taiiko, and Chloe and started to get back to work. "Thank you for the break. I miss all of you when we are apart." They smiled and walked inside. I didn't want to let on that I was as worried as Annie and walked back to the woodpile when Deat called.

"Hey Deat, what's up?"

"A lot brother, I'll start with the easy stuff first which isn't surprising, except it is. Interpol had Customs check all passengers arriving and departing Iceland in the last six months, and run a photo match of the men you... encountered.... and nothing turned up. That's not all that surprising because it is an island, or they could have taken a private jet and bribed someone to look the other way. There are ways to get on and off an island. However, those vans can't just drive-in. They had to come on a ship, which requires tremendous logistics, especially if you don't want a record of them ever being on the island, which there isn't. They were obviously on the island but there is no record of them ever arriving through customs. It gets better. My contact at Interpol ran the prints of all the guys, Japan and Iceland, but he was denied access."

"Interpol was denied access?"

"That's what I said. Apparently, people in Finland are not pleased that we are looking into these gentlemen. They are still being detained on a secure floor in the hospital and they will likely be there for a fair bit of time, all except the drone pilot, but he's locked up. Iceland and Japan have jurisdiction but neither country wants anything to do it. My friend has a contact in Finland, who's pretty high ranking, and he's going to see if he can get more information on these guys. It's highly doubtful they are active military but given the lengths, they are going to in order to keep them hidden it almost looks like it's off the books paramilitary BS, or there are some very deep pockets at play."

"We are focusing on both angles, brother, and if we can access information about Annie's sister and her fiance, and his father, we will. Interpol is also looking at 'dad' with renewed scrutiny and is starting to shake the trees with the focus on the sex ring. They are planning on turning the heat up to high in the next couple of weeks." I told him that my gut says that 'dad' is the one with deep pockets. I also gave him Ingrid's name to check out because she worried me the most. He wrote it down.

"Do you have sources that I don't know about Daniel?" What was I supposed to say?

"It's complicated Deat. I've been having very vivid and intense dreams and they are coming true. I had one last night and I saw Ingrid on the phone talking with Roan. I asked Annie about it and she practically turned white. Ingrid's a worry because she's targeting my family so anything you can give me would be helpful and I'll keep passing on info to you if find any." He was silent.

"That seems fair, and you always have been pretty odd, but watch your back too. You can't protect them if they come after you and you aren't focused. Capiche?" I said yeah and thanks. Chopping wood was a lot more enjoyable than all this crap. I chopped and stacked for another couple of hours before Sara and Janey came out and dragged me inside for lunch. Ama and Emily had made a big pot of soup and baked some rye bread, which I loved. I had given up on trying to get any information about what the three did when they disappeared. Sara would get serious and say that it was top secret and put her finger to her lips. I washed up and sat down as everyone else was devouring the soup. I didn't realize how hungry I was, or how chilly, and the soup certainly hit the spot on both accounts. The bread simply tasted great. I filled them in on what Deat said as Annie stared at me in disbelief.

"They can't get any information on these men? How is that possible?" She was getting frustrated because she was worried. The rest of the girls had no clue how the clans worked, and I just had a basic understanding, so Annie was having to carry that pretty much alone. Taiiko helped, which is why I think they bonded so quickly, but even that was different as well because Japan isn't Norway.

"Sadly, it's about power and money and the machinations behind both. Both Deat and his friend at Interpol will keep digging and it seems my ability to access things is starting to expand so I'll keep working with that now that I know about Ingrid. All we can do is what we've been doing, and paying attention. Ama and Emily, the soup and bread were fantastic. Thank you." We finished and Annie and I were doing dishes. I hip-bumped her. She smiled and bumped me back. "You want to talk a walk, on two legs, after we're done. She nodded. "Good." We grabbed jackets, headed outside, and walked up the hill behind the house. I seemed to be obsessed with that hill ever since I saw Ama get shot in my vision/dream. I was worried that it wasn't just a dream.

"What? You like you've seen a ghost."

"According to this, they are targeting all of the clans. We're just first." I walked in and looked over their shoulders as Annie and Taiiko walked up hugging each other. It made me smile even though I knew they would fit together. They stared at everyone and asked the same thing I did."

"They want to target all the clans, Annie, all of them. There's information on all the clans, detailed information that they shouldn't have. We're the lynchpin of their plan. They want to control everything that the clans control. They want it all and they don't care what it takes. What do we do?" Annie looked at me.

"We don't panic. If they need us out of the way then they are very frustrated at the moment. We need to read through that. I suppose you and Ama need to read through it, Annie, and see if you want to share it with Interpol, but there's nothing we can do about it right now. I understand now why they took such a risk coming back here, especially with the van. I doubt they have another because it's not just something you can drive across the border. It takes planning, same with the men, and equipment. This has been in the works for a while, yet it still confuses me regarding the timing. I suppose they could have just staged all of it here for when we showed up but breaking the neutrality agreement is a big deal. It also says that the rules are off for whoever is in charge. I say we deal with it tomorrow." I don't think they were buying it. " Have you eaten? If you're going to obsess on it then at least do so after you've eaten." They nodded.

I pushed outward past the entrance and there was nothing. It was like they pulled up anchor and sailed away, which would be great. It was too late to call Deat, and I was tired anyway, so I asked Ama if I could have another pill. She nodded and got up.

"Aren't you going to have dinner?" Janey asked.

"No, sweets, I'm tired, and I'm still full from lunch. It was enough to last me for two days. I'll have breakfast tomorrow." Ama smiled as she walked up and handed me the pill. I took it, said goodnight to everyone, and started walking to the bedroom as Taiiko went with me. Man, this thing hit fast. I hadn't even made it to the door when it started to kick in. I sat on the bed and my head started spinning. I was trying to take off my socks but couldn't. Taiiko was chuckling as she did it for me. I fell onto my pillow and I was out. She lifted my legs onto the bed and pulled the covers up, kissed me, and turned out the light.

I had no idea what time it was, or even what was going on, I was no longer at Ama's. I was watching, and listening to Jaak's father yell at him on the phone. I hadn't pushed. I hadn't done anything. I was just there when I was supposed to be asleep. I thought I was getting used to being confused, but this took it to a whole new level, so I listened. I was there for some reason.

"Goddammit Jaak, you told me it was no big deal, that it would be over in Denver, quickly, and look at that fuck up. We lost, cash, passports, equipment, and the FBI and Interpol got involved. Then you said it would be over in Japan because they wouldn't be expecting it, and there are six people missing, presumably with Interpol, all their equipment and cash are gone, and Interpol is even more curious. Then you said we could end it in Iceland because it's neutral ground and no one would dare attack Ama so it gave us the advantage. I sent two vans expecting to get them back because I use them for other things, and now they're both gone. They aren't cheap, Jaak, and it's not like I have them lying around. Do you have any idea what it took to get them into Reykjavik? I don't like having to ask for favors. You are fucking this up at every opportunity Jaak and I'm getting sick of it. Do you have any idea what this has cost me? I'm done. You and Roan do your own dirty work and use your own money. I'm too busy trying to clean up your messes so they don't come back to bite me. I have to destroy a company that I have been using for years and start over somewhere else."

"I'm sorry Da' but no one knew he had skills. You'll get all your money back and have access to all the lands once we are in control. These things are never easy. You know that from your own experiences. Iceland is still the safest place because if we wait until the wedding then it'll be messy."

"Iceland is over . There are no men and everything else is gone. It's done. You'll have to figure something else out." He hung up furious. He poured some scotch and sat in front of the fire seething. I looked around and wondered how the hell I was getting back to Ama's when I was jerked away with such force that had I been awake I would have puked. I ended up looking at a blonde woman in a bathtub, drinking something, and talking on the phone. Her name was Ingrid. I had no idea how I knew that but I did and she was as close to evil as I had seen.

"Roan, love, you need to calm down. I fully expected Jaak to fuck things up. He's useful because of his dad, but he's a moron. He's devious, but he's still a moron. However, we need him until we don't. Patience. I tell you that all the time. My brother is still working on having people ready when we need them. He's reserved the "A-team." The others didn't fare so well. Relax because our plan is still on track."

OK, who the fuck is Ingrid, and what did all that mean. Jesus Christ, there's Roan, Jaak, and his father concocting plans to kill us, and now Roan and this Ingrid woman have a totally separate scheme. These people made Machiavelli look like he was in grade school. I didn't even want to try and read between the lines of what Roan and Ingrid had planned when I got jerked again. Fuck, I obviously wasn't in my body for some reason I couldn't understand. I was supposed to be sleeping, why couldn't I just materialize wherever I suppose to be instead of being jerked all over the place, and that's when I got thrown back into my room, not back into my body, mind you, back into the room.

I was trying to stop everything from spinning when I, at least my body, got out of bed and started walking toward the kitchen. Great, I thought, now what. I was either sleepwalking, or possessed, but I was obviously attached because I was being dragged along, unceremoniously. Chloe, Annie, Taiiko, and Ama were at the kitchen table talking about the thumb drive when I walked past them and went outside, barefoot, and in a t-shirt. Holy fuck!

The girls looked at each other, confused. Chloe followed me/us outside. "Daniel? Are you OK Love? What are you doing? It's cold out here." I was scanning, looking to see if anyone was out there. I knew there wasn't but I wondered what he knew. I was getting intrigued. "Daniel! Come back in sweets." I turned, walked into the kitchen, and sat down. Everyone was staring at me, and I couldn't blame them. I was freaking myself out. I got in front and looked at myself. My eyes were open but no one was home. They all looked at each other, worried. I cocked my head and said,

"We're safe here now. They won't come back here. They're coming at us somewhere else, probably Norway." I looked over Taiiko's head, toward the distance and scanned. It was way more advanced than what I did when I pushed. I was at her home, our home, and I saw Yoshi. I looked around and then at Taiiko. "Yoshi is fine. Safe. You don't need to worry." Ama was sitting next to her, watching me. I looked at her, and smiled, before looking at Annie. She stared at me, totally confused.

"Who is Ingrid?" She gasped and grabbed Ama's and Chloe's hands. "She is behind this with Jaak and Roan. They are using him and his father. They think Jaak is stupid but devious. He can't be underestimated. Jaak's father is just supplying the funds and materials. He wants what's under all of your lands because that is all he cares about. They are all a danger but Ingrid is close to evil. Her father is Finnish, and her brother is in the army. He is the one with the contacts and who is supplying the men." I stood up and walked back to the room, got in bed, and was jerked back into my body. I didn't move until the next morning.

I woke up like the day before feeling fantastic. I was the only one in bed, again. I brushed, got dressed, and walked into the kitchen, smiling. Everyone was scrunched around the table, staring at me like I had three heads.

"Morning. Ama, whatever herbs are in that pill you should patent it because they're fantastic. I feel great. I don't think I moved the entire night." I walked over, got some coffee, and leaned against the counter. They were still staring at me. "Why are all of you staring at me like that?" I looked down at my zipper. "What?" Chloe said.

"You don't remember coming out here last night and walking outside?"

"No, I was asleep." Taiiko looked at me, worried, and asked if I remembered telling her that Yoshi was safe?" "No. What's this all about." Ama was watching me, intently when Annie asked,

"Who's Ingrid, Daniel?" I stared at her because that name was somehow familiar and that's when the headache happened, worse than usual. I was just able to set the cup down before I crumpled to the ground, hitting my head. I opened my eyes as Ella and Joseph walked up and sat down.

"Again with the falling?" What is going on?"

"You had a lot to process. Quite the night, huh. Are you remembering?" The images and conversations from last night were flooding into my brain. I remembered everything. I told them yes.

"What happened?"

"Ama will explain that to you, we're here to tell you that all of you must stay here until you leave for Norway, that is where the danger is, and that is where you will have to bring this to a close. Ama will be working with each of you in varying ways, even Emily, but primarily with you and Sara. She will work with the others after the ceremony. You and Sara are already unlocking abilities that have lain dormant for a long time. It is why Ama wanted all of you here. You are all doing fine, and blending as expected. Enjoy it here, and the change of seasons. Now quit slacking off and wake up, Daniel." They were gone. I opened my eyes and sat up. It must have just been a few seconds because the girls were just getting out of their chairs. It was going to be one of those days.

Annie said she faxed a copy of the ID and everything else that was in the drawer to Deat. I asked if the girls found anything else except the drone and she shook her head. It was going to start getting dark soon, and cold, so I'd go out tomorrow and look around a broader area. Ama got off the phone. She looked at me and shook her head.

"At least he was using a drone and I didn't hurt anyone." She couldn't help but chuckle and hugged me. My friend is on his way to pick him. He's calling Interpol now because he wants them to come to get him." I nodded. "If it's any consolation, I pushed numerous times and didn't feel anyone. I figure since it was on your property, the van is ours. I'm hoping to entice LIeve and Heather with the drones so they'll come and stay for a while." Ama nodded. "I'm going to call Deat and then shift before I go to bed just to make sure." I went outside to call him.

"Hey, hold on a sec. I'm finishing up with Interpol. Actually, I'll call you back in a few." I pushed again and glassed the area, still nothing, which was good but I was wondering why I had a pit in my stomach, and the phone rang.

"Hey. Well I don't know if trouble seeks you out, or you go searching for it but you have an uncanny knack of finding it. Tell Annie thanks for the update," I told him I would, "and thanks for the photos. That's a shitload of drones. Speaking of that Lieve is doing great. She's top of her class. She's a natural. The electronics look like an abbreviated mobile command center. Is this similar to the van you destroyed?"

"Yeah, except this one is set up for surveillance. The other was for a tactical unit, that's why it's destroyed and the men will be spending varying amounts of time in the hospital and then in rehab. You get anything on the IDs?"

"I was talking with Interpol about that. They figure the IDs are fakes but the four you sent to the hospital, and the one you have now, will have their prints taken and we'll see how high up this goes, that, in itself, will tell us a lot. They had a plane on the way to Osaka very early this morning and they'll run their prints on-site to expedite it. They have a med. team with them because they want to bring them all back. They don't trust the local cops." I told him I couldn't blame them for that. "We are sifting through a lot of info thanks to you, but that's when things tend to fall out of the trees, so the guys are happy for it. We'll know more when we get the prints back, and who knows maybe the IDs are legit. If they all claim diplomatic immunity and get it, then things are royally fucked up and Interpol will be busy."

"As far as Annie's future brother-in-law, and his father, goes, they're 100% dirty and pretty disgusting, but nothing has stuck. Interpol has tried but the father has high-level connections in the Finnish government and with other high-profile individuals that have a tremendous amount of clout. They are close to being above the law, and even if he was charged with something outside of Finland he has immunity as well. It's like a fucking revolving door. The reason I bring this up brother is that the younger shit is just as vile as his father, maybe more so. Watch your back. I'll keep you updated. How are doing you with all of this?"

"I'm holding my own Deat. It's coming back to me, even though I never wanted to do any of this shit again, but they're targeting the people I love. Any chance I can get diplomatic immunity?" He laughed. "How are Melinda and the girls?"

"They are doing great and super excited. They're leaving this weekend and doing a road trip. I've been communicating with Henry and the construction on Sara's house is complete. They changed and upgraded all the looks. Whoever put in the security system knew what they were doing. Henry said that he had them redo the back door so it's no longer french doors. I hope Sara doesn't mind but it's a smart move from a security position."

"I don't think Sara will mind. She's just excited you're staying there..."

"What won't I mind, and who are you talking to, mister?"

"I'm talking with Deat and Henry had them change the back door."

"I don't care about a dumb old door. Let me talk with him."

"Here's Sara."

"Hi, Deat. How are your girls and when will they be there?"

"Hi, Sara. They're all fine and very excited and will be there at the end of next week. Everything should be done by then." She wanted to clap but couldn't.

"That's awesome. Tell Melinda, and this goes for you too, that I want you to act like it's your home. We have a ton going on and we're not sure how soon we'll be back but that doesn't matter because we have ample places to stay so the house is yours as long as you want. I mean that Deat. It's not just me being polite. You are not intruding, in fact, the house was built for more than just a couple so enjoy it, and the backyard is super cool. There is a yellow lab that lives behind that has its own doggie door so the girls will have their own part-time dog. I'm serious about the house. Give my love to your girls. Here's Daniel." She kissed me and went back because it was starting to get chilly.

"She's something else, isn't she."

"Yeah she is, but they are like that in different ways. Why do think I fell in love with all of them?"

"I'm beginning to kinda understand. I need to get off the phone or I'll be in huge trouble. Thank God Sara got on so I can tell Melinda." We both laughed because we both understood. "I'll call when I know something. Watch your back Daniel and if the spidey sense goes crazy pay attention to it." I told him I would as I noticed a car heading up the road.

"Ama, I think your friend is coming. Can you check? If it's him I want to put the guns away." She came out and said it was. Taiiko and put the guns in the closet and closed the door and sat at the table. Ama introduced us briefly and then started speaking Icelandic we all went in to look at the bonsai. She handed him the ID and his weapon. He put cuffs on him but left the ties. He cut the ones on his ankles and took him to the car. Ama went outside with him and we all came into the house and waited for her to come back in.

"Interpol will be here tomorrow morning but he's going to run the prints when he gets back and he's waiting twenty-four hours before he can make a call. It won't be his problem then." I thought good. Chloe and Janey were in the kitchen prepping for dinner. "It'd probably be wise for you and Annie to shift and check down to the entrance. We nodded. I went to change my shoes and we walked outside.

"I thought that I would start with the hill then search on this side and you can go that way...." I turned and she was gone. "OK, then, I'll just go this way." I shook my head, shifted, and ran up the hill just to be sure no one had been there. They hadn't. I searched like I always did. I didn't smell anyone, nor see anything. I slowed down around where the guy was and started looking on the ground. I was getting ready to move on when I noticed something. It was a thumb drive but had fallen next to a bush of some kind. I could see why the girls missed it, I almost missed it. It was on the path the first shooter took to his location. Why he had a thumb drive was odd but I was glad I found it. I shifted back, reached down and put it in my pocket, and hoped that would work. I shifted and ran doing my search. Annie had shifted and was standing at the entrance waiting for me. I walked up and said hi. She smiled.

"Ama needs a gate with all of the people coming and going lately." I nodded. "She hugged me and looked at me as she smiled." I've missed you. We all have, none of us like being apart. We're going to have to figure that out." I nodded as we started walking back holding hands. "We have a lot to figure out Daniel." I told her I knew. "Ama is giving you a pill so you will sleep and then tomorrow we get to climb all over you at night, but you're making love with me in the shower, from behind because I want you touching my breasts and my belly. Deal?" I told her I'd think out about on the run home. She punched me, then bit me, then shifted and ran. I followed.

She beat me home by a long shot. I knew I was going to get teased. Annie was leaning against the SUV smiling, waiting. "It's a good thing you have nice ears because you can't run worth shit." She laughed and ran inside. I smiled and followed her in as everyone stepped back. I reached in my pocket and pulled out the thumb drive.

"Alison, love, we need you and your laptop. She grabbed it and walked into the kitchen, with everyone else. "It was almost under a bush. Annie and I are taking a shower." They all nodded but could care less. They were focused on the drive. We got clean clothes and put them on the bed, stripped in the bathroom, walked into the shower, and bathed each other. Annie stroked me until I got hard then turned and leaned against the wall, pushing her butt toward me and wiggling it as she laughed. I rubbed the head of my penis against her lips. She was already wet and I slide completely in as she moaned and reached her right hand behind to grab me. We started making love as I leaned against her, wrapping my arms around her and rubbing her belly and breasts. Her belly was definitely showing and her breasts were fuller. I rubbed both her nipples as her breathing quickened and she started moaning. I kept squeezing and pulling and felt her muscles clamp my cock as she grunted and came on me. I moved one hand back to her belly and we pushed onto each other, harder and faster both of us breathing hard and fast. I came as she moaned and dug her nails into my hip. I kept moving until I had stopped cumming and pulled out. She turned, smiled, and kissed me as she washed my penis. I shuddered because it was still sensitive but she didn't stop. I came a little more as she finished cleaning me. We dried off and walked into the bedroom to get dressed as Taiiko walked in smiling.

"I came to get the clothes so you didn't since you're clean." Annie walked over and kissed her. Taiiko put her hand on her belly and smiled. "I'm glad we are getting married." Annie smiled.

"You get him tomorrow Love and Sara has a present for you, but it's a surprise." I shook my head as I put on my socks, kissed Taiiko, and went to find out what was on the drive. It'd been a long day and I was looking forward to the herbs but was curious about that drive. I walked into the kitchen and everyone looked at me.

I hadn't realized how much I needed that downtime, or the sleep, and spending time with Ama was nice. She was very familiar, and her taking me to the community center seemed to have an unspoken purpose, which was what I was pondering on the drive home. I had numerous things to ponder, so many that they were backing up and I would need to start prioritizing. My mom taught me to care about others, especially the less fortunate. My parents weren't rich, but we were comfortable, and we were frugal, and they invested in land and buildings in areas that would never show a return for them. It didn't matter because they weren't doing it for them, they were doing it for us and we benefited from that caring and foresight, at least I did because I took what my brothers didn't want and fate was kind. Mom and I would help in food drives, food banks, charities that fed people.

On Thanksgiving and Christmas, mom and I would get up before the sun and go serve breakfast. Well, I would serve and mom would help prepare the turkey dinner for later. We'd get back to the house around noon, tired but happy, and finish preparing our own meal. My brothers didn't do anything and my dad was usually asleep because of how long and hard, he worked. This was his time to recharge. He did not have an easy job even though he owned the business. I helped and saw that first hand. My mom never begrudged him because of that, and she had given up on my brothers. I suppose I learned who I was in large part due to their example. The girls and I were going to have to have a discussion about this. We were going to have to have discussions about a lot of things. We pulled onto the road that led to Ama's.

"When does your property start Ama?"

"It starts here with this livestock grate. I've lived here a long time, off and on, and was able to purchase it when no one wanted it." I said that trait seemed to run in our families. " She smiled and nodded. "Yes it does. I know a lot of people and I try and help as I can. I trade and barter a fair amount, mainly for them because my needs are few, and it means they don't have to spend cash. The land is a good example of that. I let ranchers graze cattle, sheep, and lamb on it. They are respectful of the land and don't let them overgraze and they give me meat which I share." Good stewardship applies to many things Daniel. It's part of why I wanted you to come into town and see where the money was going. It's one of the most important aspects of being a good leader. Your mom taught you most of that and the rest is just who you are. The girls are the same way. It's one reason Marnine hated them so much. We pulled up to the house and both Sara and Taiiko came running out, practically attached at the hip, both of them smiling and laughing. Ama looked at me and laughed. " You are going to have quite a life dear one." I nodded as we both got out. Sara and Taiiko gang hugged me. We were all walking in when I heard it, a high pitch whine. Drone.

We walked in and I went into the closet, got the sniper rifle, checked the clip, and went outside with binoculars to find it, and to see if could find the operator. It was flying low enough that I could hear it so it wasn't highly advanced, which was good, but still, they just didn't know when to quit. It wasn't that hard to find and it was being stationary long enough for me to get a shot, all I had to do was track it. It looked like it was doing some sort of modified grid pattern on it's approach to the house. I was curious about that. I wondered what they were looking for, maybe one of the guys left something behind, assuming this was the same people. I needed a program to keep track of them.

The drone hovered and dropped in altitude like it was looking at something. I quickly oriented on where and put the sight back on the drone, breathed, and fired. There was a suppressor on it so it didn't make any noticeable sound. It dropped and hit the ground. Hopefully, the pilot would think there was a malfunction and come looking for it. I hoped so because I wanted to speak with whoever it was. I took the rifle in, put it up, and grabbed a handgun, holster, and extra clips, and one of the assault rifles and extra clips. Taiiko walked in and looked at me, didn't say a word and did the same. I was about to say something when she looked at me and I knew it was futile, that's what having strong women in your life means. I told everyone else to stay inside as Taiiko grabbed binoculars and followed me outside. I told her about where it went down. She moved off to the side and hid so that she could flank them if anyone showed up. I'd go at them from the front. We were both wearing vests just in case.

It was about fifteen minutes when I saw dust from the road and started watching. It was another Telcom van. of a bitch, so much for a break. It wasn't that far away because he was going to approach on foot, which was the only way he'd get the drone or whatever it was he saw. It was highly risky as he was about to find out. I didn't care for using guns, but I knew how to use them. I could feel Taiiko getting ready because she had been watching him too. He was a fair way onto the property and was fully committed. He was roughly two hundred feet from where I thought the drone should be. He was looking around on the ground when I stepped out from beside the SUV and started walking toward him. Taiiko stayed put, God Bless her, and surveilled the area to see if anyone else was around. I had pushed earlier and didn't feel anyone but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I had gone a hundred feet toward him, off to his right, before he noticed me. He was obviously surprised but saw the rifle and stood still, smart because I wouldn't have missed. Taiiko walked towards us still alternating between him and the road. I stopped about twenty-five yards from him. I had the safety off the entire time. I could feel the wheels spinning in his mind.

"You speak English?" He nodded.

"What's your name?" I was being neutral so he was uncertain even though he could see the rifle. He didn't say anything. "That's fine, I'll find out soon enough?"

"I'm guessing you know this is private property, right?" Nothing. "Here's what I want you to do. Take your left hand and slowly remove the gun, emphasis on slowly. Drop the mag and throw it in front of you, to the right. Understood?" Nothing. " The other option is that I shoot you in the shoulder, and at this range, it will be blown apart, and then I disarm you, either is fine with me." He was pissed but he did it.

" Good, now I want you to put your hands behind your neck and interlock your fingers, get on your knees and cross your ankles. I'm sure you know the drill and the same rules apply. Chop, chop." He was seething inside, and pissed at himself that I got so close before he saw me. Taiiko circled behind him and walked up to him, as did I. I wanted to be imposing and have him focus on me. I also wanted him to know that if he tried anything, it wouldn't go well for him. I knew he wanted to but Taiiko would have dislocated something. She zip-tied his wrist and ankles and searched him. He had two knives, a backup piece in the waist of his pants, and one around his left ankle. She emptied his pockets and kept watching the road because neither of us was going to bother questioning him. He knew he was done and he wouldn't say a word but at least we hadn't hurt him, at least not yet.

I waved at the house because I knew they were all watching and sure enough they came piling out and climbed into the SUV and drove to us. Jake and I dragged him over and loaded him in the back. I checked the ties and they were secure. Annie had grabbed a handgun and was watching him as I told the others to fan out and look around for something that shouldn't be there.

" Stay six feet apart and head toward the house, go slow. It might be small as a zip drive so focus. The drone should be somewhere close as well. Taiiko and I are going to check the van" I walked to Annie and kissed her. "Don't hesitate to shoot him, and I mean that. Ankles hurt, knees hurt, hips hurt but shooting him anywhere won't be a fun experience. We'll&#39 be back soon. I guessing he's alone." She nodded. Taiiko and I headed to the van. I was keeping this one and I hoped there were more drones in it because maybe I could entice Lieve and Heather to come out.

Taiiko went wide around the other side. I moved to the front and looked in the windshield. Nothing. I pushed again and there was still nothing. It didn't make sense that they would have two guys to fly a drone, but they weren't counting on me shooting it down. He should have left it, it wasn't like they hadn't lost a lot already. What's one drone." We walked to the back door. This was the part I hated but I had to do it. I reached, grabbed the handle, and pushed and turned in one quick motion as I stepped back. Nothing. I put the rifle in my left hands and looked in quickly. Nothing. There was no place to hide. Thankfully they did just send one guy. I helped Taiiko up by putting my hand between her legs and lifting. She turned around, shook her head, and smiled.

I checked the area with the binoculars before I climbed in. I wanted to get off the road. Taiiko climbed in the passenger seat and I climbed in the driver's. The key was in the console. We headed to Ama's. The SUV was back at the house so they must have found at least the drone. I drove the van behind the house and parked it next to the base of the hill and we got out as Emily and Jake came running up.

" The drone is so cool dad even though you shot it." I opened both back doors.

" Do me a favor and grab a couple of bags from the house." He went running in as Emily hugged Taiiko. I climbed in and started looking around. " How's the guy?"

"Mad," she said laughing. He got dragged inside by a group of women." We all started laughing. It was a similar setup only for drones. I started looking through cabinets and found cash, again, only not as much. I popped the drawer and took out his ID and the rest of what was in it.

" Em, do me a favor sweets, take this money to Ama for me, please." She smiled. "Jake, toss me one of those bags." I loaded the clips and the ammo, and ID and papers into it. He only had the handguns. Take this into your mom and Chloe, please." Thanks. There were two vertical cabinets that I popped opened with the knife. Taiiko looked in and whistled. It was filled with various drones. I took pictures for them, as well as the electronics. I'd search it more thoroughly later but I wanted to get inside and text this to Deat before I called him. I closed everything up and locked the van. Taiiko wrapped her arms around me.

" That was fun mister. You sure know how to show a girl a good time. We walked to the front and checked with binoculars but didn't see anything. I pushed and there was still nothing. We walked in and Ama wasn't happy. She was on the phone with her contact in the National Police. It was going to be a long day.

Ama and I got in and headed to Reykjavik, luckily it was an automatic because I was still a little groggy and could drink my coffee. I actually wouldn't mind another deep sleep because something told me it might be my last for a while. We passed the Telcom van and Ama smiled.

"Did it feel good?" It was my turn to smile.

"Yes, it did. Given the electronics, and what I took, that van was probably worth $150,000, easily. It felt great but I would prefer they just stopped because I'm starting to get mad.

"They won't stop Daniel, not until all of you get married, then it would be pointless, but maybe that won't even stop them. They won't come back here because I won't allow it again and that will keep them off guard because they won't know what to do. Miriam is treading lightly because it's highly likely that Roan and Jaak are behind it, or at least deeply involved. The lineage moves from mother to eldest but not necessarily the wisdom, or power, of the clan, that is one reason I am still here as you see me. You and Anryd will be a welcome change."

"Miriam has been a good leader since her husband died but she relied heavily upon Josef because he was wise so he wasn't easily swayed by people round him, of which there are many. Sadly, Miriam is and it's further complicated because she doesn't want to admit what Roan truly is, that blindness is a danger not only all for you, especially Anryd, but also the Clans because Miriam is not strong enough to stop her alone. Thankfully, with the exception of those who follow Roan, most of the rest of the Clans are waiting to see what you and Anryd do. I have absolutely no doubt that both of you are up to the task, as you and Taiiko are. Miriam treads lightly because she doesn't possess the strength to confront what she must, her husband provided than, none of you have that problem, especially you Daniel," she chuckled. "You chose your totem wisely because it is unwise to stand in front of a charging bear, especially if it's mad. You have no problem doing what you must, even if you would rather not be bother ,and Anryd and Taiiko are the same. You will need to do just that, especially in Norway."

I've watched how you are with each of them. Anyrd and Taiiko are obviously different, and from different cultures, but they are more similar than different and you blend with them seamlessly, as do they with each other. Chloe is the same but Chloe, Janey, and Sara are uncertain in their roles because they don't see the influence, and wisdom, they possess yet, being here will help them with that. Anyrd was lucky because she grew up with it, and they are one of the oldest clans, same with Taiiko."

"Ella died prematurely, as did Claire. It was necessary and often times Gaia's plans or opaque and long range. Another factor is that America is quite young and the culture is vastly different. You view things very differently from here. None of them were all that interested in building a following, mainly because they were grieving and trying to help Henry. The funny thing is that Chloe has the makings of a Clan, but you call it your family, and that is fine with you, and it is fine, period. Anyrd and Taiiko, along with the other large Clans, have greater responsibility especially since Marnine was sent back to Gaia because change is coming, at the light turn left."

I didn't know what to say but I sure could use another cup of coffee so I figured I would just jump in. "Is this prophesy true, Ama." She was silent as she stared at me.

"Pull over here, Daniel, and park. I am not prepared to discuss that yet, but it's part of why I wanted all you staying with me before the wedding, and why there will be no more interruptions. There are things we need to do and there isn't much time before we must leave for Norway. Bring your file and we'll send that and then have lunch. We'll discuss all this later because there are many things I am curious about." I wrote a brief note saying that it was from Deat, I used his full name because I doubted anyone but me call him Deat anymore. He'd have it tomorrow. I extended my arm as I had done with Marnine and Ama smiled and took it as we strolled to lunch. It was a lovely day but it was obvious that winter was coming quickly. I guessed there wasn't much of a fall in the North Atlantic.

The place Ama took me to was more like a bistro than a restaurant I would think of in the states. Ama was watching me as I read the menu. The waitress came up and Ama told me to go first because she was curious what I would get. I ordered the lamb and vegetables, rye bread and butter, and skyr because I like yogurt and I had heard about it. I think she ordered the Hakarl, fermented shark, and my mind froze so I had no idea what else. She asked me about my mother and my father but she was particularly interested in mom. I figured I knew why but I told her as much as I knew about her side of the family because she didn't discuss it much. My meal was excellent and I could see living in Iceland just because of that, the fermented shark, not so much. It must be an acquired taste because it stank to high heaven. Ama paid and we walked back to the car.

She told me to keep driving and the farther we went the not so 'nice' it became. We turned into the parking lot of an older, but still nice, building that was rather large and obviously housed multiple things. I loved these place, and organizations. It reminded me of the woman in Halifax and what she doing with the resources she had available. It always amazed me how the people that helped the most had the least. Ama and I walked in and she was mobbed. I just got out of the way and started to look around. It was like an all purpose community center. It was obviously that a large part of this place was specifically designed to aid folks during the winter, but there was day care so single mom's could work. There was a large food pantry and a kitchen to serve meals. There was a library, and barber shop for both men and women. There were clothes and a room that had professional clothes so people had something for interviews. It was a one stop shop of love and goodness. I looked up as Ama waved for me to follow her.

"What do you think Daniel?"

"I think it's amazing Ama. I love places like these." She smiled and nodded.

"Sadly they are needed everywhere. Marnine didn't care about helping people and neither does Roan. Miriam tries, and has helped some, but this is a contentious issue." I told her I never understood that. She nodded. "It takes strength and determination to help. It takes leadership because there are many who either don't care, or don't want to be bothered." I nodded as we walked back to the offices. Ama introduced me to the director as we sat and they began speaking in Icelandic. I listened intently because I loved these old languages. She handed the woman the money I took from the van which was at least $75,000. It made me wonder what else they had planned to do. The woman was beside herself and hugged Ama and reached for my hand and pulled me up to hug me too, except she also kissed me on the cheek before sitting back in her chair. I wonder what Ama had said. They talked a bit more before Ama stood and said goodbye. I waved as we walked out the door and headed back the SUV.

"She was very happy."

"What we gave them, what you got from the van, is more than half their yearly donations some years, in one day. She's very happy."

"I'm glad because it's obvious they are doing wonderful work and those idiots should pay for something like this after what they wanted to do. It couldn't have gone to a better place. I'm glad you asked Ama because wasn't even thinking about it. I wasn't really sure how much was there, I just stuffed it in the pack. Thank you for bringing me here. It means a lot to me." She smiled and hugged me.

"You have a good heart Daniel." She held out her hand, "I'll drive and I've decided to give you another pill tonight before the bombardment, and no I won't tell you what it except to say it's herbs." We got in as Ama headed home. We didn't speak, which was fine, because I had a lot to ponder.

I opened my eyes and looked around. I don't know what Ama gave me but it worked. I was alone in bed, which was a first. I was always up before everyone else. It felt weird. I had no idea what time it was, or where my suitcase was. I brushed my teeth and walked into the kitchen. Everyone, except Ama was in the sunroom laughing and saying "oh my god." Sara saw me, smiled, walked up and kissed me.

"Morning mister, that's the first time we beat you out bed. Did you sleep well? We've been looking at the gifts, they are super great by the way, and don't be mad but we made Taiiko show us our presents."

"Don't you mean you made Taiiko show you the presents."

She smiled. "Yeah, but they are amazing and we love them and guess what." I asked what. "Taiiko put all of the pearl necklaces on the table, except Miriam's, and we got to choose our most favorite and they all let me go first because I'm the youngest, well of the sisters. Wasn't that nice."

"It was very nice?"

"And guess what, again."


"I got the bestest one. Look." She showed it to me smiling and proud.

"That would be hard to top Love."

"Yep! I love it Daniel. Thank you. We all love them. Oh, and everyone got one, well except Jake but he didn't mind. Melissa is super excited because she wasn't excepting it. There were some left over, who are those for?" I said they were for Maggie, Bet, Lieve, and Heather and I thought we got one for Sabrina but I couldn't recall. She clapped.

"Guess what else?"

"What else?"

"We got these super special Japanese combs made of a special wood that smells great, even Ama, although that was a special gift from Taiiko because it was her grandmothers.."

"I know. Taiiko helped me pick them out."

She was quiet. "You're so great Daniel but I feel bad because we didn't get you anything." I kissed her.

"Sara, I've got everything I want with my family. I just wish all of us could be together." She got serious and nodded.

"Are you hungry?" I told I didn't know but would love some coffee. "I'll find Ama and find out to make it. I'll be right back. I'm glad you're up. I've missed you." I smiled as she walked out back because Sara was her own special being. I was so glad I fell in love with her. I pushed to make sure there was no threat as Ama walked in Sara went back to the sunroom.

"There's no one around Daniel and they won't be back here. I've seen to that." I wanted to ask how, but didn't. I was just glad for the break. "Did you sleep well?"

"Yes, whatever you gave me worked great."

" I was getting antsy to call Deat."

"You don't have to worry about Deat right now. He called while you were asleep and Annie spoke with him and now he's focused on the information Annie faxed him. She was up early and we went through the pack you brought back. You're quite the pack rat." she said smiling. I nodded. "She made copies of all the ID's and passports and faxed that to him as well so he has a lot to shift through, but he enjoys that." I nodded. "What are you're plans for the money and the passports?"

"I have no plans, Ama. The only thing it means to me is they don't have it." She poured me a cup of coffee. "Thank you. If you can use it then feel free. I just took everything I could, and damaged as much as I could, to annoy them and cost them. I was hoping that they would realize that the costs were too great and stop. I doubt they will but they have to be running low on men. They have to be retired special forces. I couldn't imagine active personnel being involved, but then again I didn't expect them to target you."

"I can use them. We can use the passports for the clans and the money would be helpful in town. This is reasonably affluent island, at least Reykjavik, but, like everywhere, not everyone is doing well, and winter approaches this island fast. You have a overnight box you need to send, Annie got the address. I want you and I to go into town. We'll have lunch and catch up. I want to show you what I'm referring to and show you around and because you and Sara, in particular are going to be spending time here once we get all this resolved." I looked at her as she smiled. "I know it's not easy to slip out of protector mode but assure you they are perfectly safe, but even if they weren't they are more than capable of taking care of themselves. It will be fine. Get dressed and you can take coffee with you." I nodded. I found my suitcase, got dressed, and walked back into the kitchen.

The girls were coming out, smiling, wearing their pearls. Emily saw me and bolted. She jumped in my arms, smiling. "I love it Da'. LOVE IT!!!. Thank you." I nodded as Jake came up. I hugged him and told him he had something but it needed to stay with Yoshi in Japan.

"I know dad. Taiiko told me and she said I'd like it. She walked up and hugged me.

"Did she? Well, I bet she's right because it's pretty special. Her grandfather, Yoshi, made it."

"Did you sleep well?" I nodded. "You were out before I turned the light out. You're pretty cute when you sleep, mister."

"I have to go into town to send a box but Ama want's to talk and show me around. I'm leery of leaving you here but she said you'd be fine. Do you know where the weapons are? She nodded and walked to the closet and reached inside.

"They're in there and ready to be used but Ama gave me this so I could keep practicing. Yoshi gave it to her a long time ago, so we'll be fine, Love." She held up a sword. I smiled and nodded and said OK. "Spend time with Ama and relax. You've been on high alert for days, probably longer. We're all going to see if you can take another pill tonight as well so you sleep again.

Ama walked up, "Ladies, I know all of you want to thank Daniel for your gifts and spend time with him, you too Jake, but I need him for several hours to accompany me into town. He needs to relax but he's all yours when we get back. They clapped as I got more coffee and Ama and I walked to her SUV. She handed me the keys. "I'll tell you where to go. It'll be nice not to drive."

We were on our final approach into Reykjavik and all I could think about was Ama lying on the ground, I needed to shift this, to clear my thoughts and focus. Taiiko and Tina were worried about because to them I looked worried, which I was because I had to keep my family safe, but what they were feeling was hyper-focus. I had a two purposes. First, get them to Ama's safely. Second, if there was a threat then eliminate the threat by any means necessary. It's good to know people with connections. We landed and immediately went to the maintenance area of the airport, unless you worked here you wouldn't know it where it was, and then we were driven into the hanger. I asked Tina for a pen and paper. She came back and handed it to me as she hugged me. I kissed her head.

"I need to my friend the FBI and push to see if there is a threat here, but I have to see the . Tina, can you go say to Chloe, Annie and the girls and let them know I'll get there as soon as I can?" She nodded. "Taiiko, you about to meet hurricane Sara. You'll adore each other but can you be with Jake and Emily until off the phone? I'll introduce you." She nodded. I could here the stairs being wheeled up and locked as Tina opened the door. Two guys came in to grab the luggage and the bonsai. I took my pack as Tina, Taiiko, and I walked down the stairs. Sara was jumping up and down and clapping and once we got off the stairs she bolted directly for Taiiko, who looked and me and laughed. Sara hugged her and bombarded her with words. Tina walked toward Annie, Chloe and the girls as Jake and Emily came running up to and threw their arms around me. I hugged them, and kissed both their heads as I squeezed. I had missed them so much. I had missed all of them so much. They both started laughing and saying they couldn't breathe, so I squeezed harder. I kissed them again and let go. They were both laughing.

Emily said, "Miss us Dad?" I nodded with tears in my eyes.

"You have no idea, sweets, which is why I hate having to say this but there are things going on that I need to take care of and I need to make a but I'll be back as soon as I can and we can ride to Ama's together," and that is when Sara and Taiiko walked up. Sara hugged and smiled. I introduced the to Taiiko and said I'd be back. I walked toward the hanger door and pushed. They were here. There were least three but they were bored and annoyed and thought waiting was a waste of time because the flight wasn't on the arrival board. least there was that, so if the security guys hadn't been followed, which they shouldn't have been, then we bought some time and had the element of surprise on our side, at least for a while. I called Deat.

"It's late, is everything OK?" I didn't know where to start. There was too much to say and no time. "Daniel. You OK?"

"Hey Deat, sorry. There's a lot to discuss but I have no time, but things are trying to go sideways, so far they haven't. I'll call tomorrow because I need your advice, but right now, Are you still on the task force?"

"Yeah, for two more weeks. I wanted to hand it off right. Why?"

"It's complicated, which is why I want your input since this is your expertise. Do you have a private fax?"

"Yeah, my home. Here's the ." I wrote it down.

" going to send you a fax when we get to the house, it should be within the next two hours. I need you to run those people through your system and see what pops. I think they are connected to the snipers on the fourth, and if right then it might connected to what you are working on." Silence.

"You're killing Daniel. Speaking of the fourth, we had to cut them loose without questioning them via State Dept. orders....diplomatic immunity. It's bullshit but our hands are tied. I'll take a what you fax but tomorrow and plan on talking."

"I will Deat, promise, and thanks brother. Give your girls my love. I want to catch up.

"Roger that, but watch your brother. I'll talk with you tomorrow."

I walked back to everyone. Tina hugged . I thanked her and told her to in a couple of days. She smiled. I hugged everyone. Chloe and Annie had seen in this space and knew what it meant. Sara, Melissa, Jake, Emily, and Taiiko came with me in the rear van. Annie and the others were in the lead van.


"Yes sir."

"Please watch to see if anyone starts to follow us."

"We will sir."

"Thank you." I had to leave a message for my cousin but it was done. I wrapped my arm around the and said to Melissa. She smiled. Tina had filled them in as much as she knew. We headed . I admit that I was on alert because once we left airport property we were in the open, and there were two vans. I didn't even want to think about fucking drones. I breathed, smiled at Sara and Taiiko and started hearing about what my had been doing I was pushing every couple of minutes. It was getting easier, almost a reflex. We left the city and headed north and there were no lights behind us. I exhaled.

"We're about miles ." I told him thanks when we passed a Telcom van on the side of the road.

"Was that van there when you left?"

"No sir, it wasn't, but they are all of the place." We went around a bend and I asked him to radio the front SUV and have them stopped. He did. "Taiiko, please Yoshi and find what's going on and tell him not to hand them over the the local police. contacting Interpol tomorrow." She nodded. I grabbed the file and went to with Annie and asked to fax this to the Deat. She noddedThe vans headed to Ama's and I shifted as I headed toward the van and circled it. There was one person inside. I knocked the cameras off the front and both sides. There two on the back that I knocked off. He was focused and was about to have the shit scared out of him but we was talking to someone. I couldn't make it out, so I waited for him to stop. I ran up the front of the van onto the roof and jumped a few times. I jumped down on the far side and started pounding on the side and shaking the van and ran to the side by the road and did the same put I pounded harder. He was terrified because he had no clue what could do that. I waited by the back door. It opened part way and his left leg stepped onto the ground and he waited. He stuck the barrel of the out as he shifted his weight and started to get out as I used all my force against the door. It hit him in the thigh, breaking his femur. He screamed in pain, dropped the rifle and slipped down. I hit it again, just as hard, this time breaking his shoulder. The force of the blow pushed his head against the other door, knocking him unconscious. I hooked his tac vest, lifted, and threw him into the van then shifted. I grabbed the rifle, climbed in and closed the door.

Surveillance van with four camera feeds, so I had four to take out. I figured there'd be two watching the front and two watching the back. They weren't moving, so that was good. I took off his vest and put it on, disarmed him, and took everything out of his pockets. I slid him against the table, faced him into it and tied his wrists and ankles to the table legs and the tied those together. When they found him I wanted them to wonder. I climbed up front and got the registration, grabbed his pack and started throwing things in it. I took the night vision googles and threw them on the driver seat. There was a locked drawer. I popped it open with the knife. It had all their ID's, cards, wallets, everything. I grabbed it all and put it in the pack. I opened the cabinets. There were blank passports and . They were well funded. I grabbed all of it and threw it in the pack. I opened the other one and it had ammo and mags. I shoved those in as well. It was full, and would be heavy, but I didn't have far to go with it because I was going to stash it and cover it with scrub. I stuck his knife in my belt grabbed his rifle and destroyed his equipment. I climbed into the cab, grabbed the key from the console and drove toward the house until I was about hundred yards . I used the googles. I climbed in the back, he was still unconscious. I got , shot the tires. and emptied the mag into the engine and started trotting for about two hundred yards. I found a good place to stash the pack, vest, and rifle. I cut some brush, threw the knife in and covered it. I pushed. No one but the girls were agitated. I shifted, and began to stalk.

The camera feeds bothered me because that said to me that they were prepared to enter the house, which meant they were either going to everyone, or take them hostage, but I let that go and focused on my prey. I figured they would be about two hundred yards from the house. I stopped at three and smelled. There was no one around but I smelled them. I kept walking and lied down when it was noticeable and waited for movement. Everyone moves eventually, even if it's subtle, and I was focused. I knew about where the first one was, and the second, and that's when he stretched and gave me his orientation. I crept up to him and waited until he stretched again, because I knew he would. It felt good. He moved his arm out and I jumped on top of him and bounced on his shoulders. He grunted and I kept jumping with my full force until I heard the cracks and the moan. I him on the side of the head and knocked him and shifted. I rolled him over, grabbed his ties and bound his ankles. I pulled his arms behind him and tied his wrists. Good thing he was unconscious.

I dragged him of the indentation he had made, disarmed him and threw it in along with the long gun, grabbed his assault rifle and extra clips, stuck them in back pockets and slung the rifle over my shoulder. I dragged him about two hundred feet dropped the weapon and mags, shifted and smelled. He was about the same distance in front of me. I went wide and came up behind him and waited. He moved and I did the same. I grabbed the first and dragged him to the second. I took off his gloves, put them on, and grabbed two more ties. I attached them to their ankles to form a loop. I lifted them and started walking to the house. I needed to work out more. They could hear me coming. Three guys approached me all spread apart and shined lights at me. They stared at me. I asked them to put the gun and mags in the house for me. They nodded and started dragging them to the side of the house. I walked toward the back and when it was dark I shifted, waited, and did the same as the front. It didn't take long because they were antsy. They had no contact and they wouldn't get any. It took about 40 minutes before I dragged these two to the guards. They were all staring at me, again.

"I have skills. Can you put one more rifle inside and all the mags." They nodded. I'll take two handguns and all the mags, the holsters, the vests, and the NVG's if you don't mind." They nodded. "Thanks. I don't think there is anyone else but going to check, I shouldn't be more than thirty minutes." They nodded. I turned and headed up the small hill behind the house where the shooter was in my vision. I shifted and ran. No one had been there. I ran the circumference of the house, a mile and zigzagged back in. Nothing. I walked up and said don't shoot. They were all smiling.

"You guys want something to drink?" They all said please I walked in and everyone stared . I still hated that. I said as they all backed away from . Can someone get the guys outside something to drink. They're thirsty, and can someone find my sweat, and a shirt and socks please. taking a shower." They all clapped. I was almost undressed when Annie and Taiiko walked in. "I don't think the boots smell that bad, sorry, I forgot I had them on."

"I don't care about the boots, Love, are you OK?"

" fine, just tired. Those guys are going to have a bad months." I looked Annie. "I missed you sweets. I missed all of you and sorry I was so distant earlier." She walked up and kissed .

"We understand Love. You were doing your job." I looked down because I still felt bad.

"Did you fax Deat what was in the folder?" She nodded. "When I get there's a bag I need to grab because it has all of their ID and info in it among other things." They both sat on the counter holding hands. Taiiko spoke.

"Can you hear ?" I told her yeah, the enhanced senses hadn't warn off yet. "Yoshi said that two have talked. The one you threw into the tree is still unconscious. The doctor is taking care of him until they can get him to the hospital. The others are close to breaking. They know how to inflict excruciating pain and not leave a mark. He said they should talk soon and no pigs. He'd rather have Interpol pick them up because he agreed about the local police."

"Good. I wiped the water out of my eyes and they were both staring at , awkwardly. "What, the water was cold." The both laughed as Annie hopped down and handed a towel.

"Not that silly, it's just that this is the first time that Taiiko is with one of us while you're naked." Taiiko nodded. "It's fine, Love, it was just interesting." Taiiko spoke.

"Annie's right, Daniel, it's fine. I am not at all jealous of my sisters. I would be with someone else."

"Even Kana?" She stared at me and grunted as she shook her head.

"You're an...."

"The appropriate term is asshole, Taiiko. Come on, you can tell me about Kana and I'll pinch him too." I brushed and put my clean clothes on and smelled the boots they weren't too bad. I hoped it wore off. I went into the living room and Annie glared at me. "You can pinch me when I get back." I hugged Chloe, Janey and Alison and apologized. I'll talk with you when I get back I won't be long. Come on Chloe. She smiled and took my hand as we walked outside.

"Thanks for the drinks, it the spot."

"Good. Can I borrow one of them for about minutes."

"Yeah, the keys are in it." I told him thanks as we climbed in and I headed to get the pack and weapon.

"I'll be right back. Climb in the back and get naked lady." She smiled. I didn't have to ask her twice. I grabbed the gear, opened the back door and put it off to the side. I pushed when I walked up and there was nothing except the people I knew. I got undressed and lied down. It was uncomfortable but I didn't mind. Chloe need to be with . She lied on top of and we kissed. It didn't take long for to get hard. She reached between her legs, position the head of my penis against her lips and pushed on to . We made love slowly, gently, while we kissed. I came inside her and we kissed until I popped . She turned and started to clean , and I did the same with her. We got up and dressed and kissed each again, smiling. No words were needed. It's what we both needed. I pulled back up and grabbed the pack and the gun and headed inside.

"If you ever want a job, let me know." I smiled.

"Thanks, but you guys work too hard." They all howled. All the girls were smiling when we walked in.

Sara said, "Nice ride," and they all laughed. I shook my head and went up to say to Janey, Alison, Jake, and Emily. I was beat but I wanted to at least tell them that. They all understood. Annie had spoken with the . I grabbed the pack and walked into the kitchen. Ama was sitting the table.

"Hello Daniel, It's wonderful to meet you in person. Quite the ." I nodded. "Everything can wait until tomorrow, Love, even your friend Deat. He has plenty to keep him occupied. I'll take care of the weapons. The bonsai are safe, as are your gifts. I took the coverings of the trees because they needed attention. They are not use to flying and it was stressful for them. They are fine. I will take good care of them and I must say that I am impressed, especially by the Ash for all the clans, that was as impressive as it was thoughtful. I am also touched by the thoughtfulness of your gift to because I was here when birch trees covered a fair bit of this island. We can speak more in the morning. I want you to take this." She handed a pill and some water. "It will help you sleep without dreams, or visions. You are more tired than you realize." I took it and she grabbed my hand and looked into my eyes. "I am glad you're back Daniel. I've missed you, now hurry because it doesn't take long and none of us want to lift you onto the bed."

I walked into the living room and I could feel it kicking in. It felt like I was drunk. I saw Taiiko and reach out for her to help me. She grabbed me. "Bed." She helped me into our room sat me on the bed as she took my boots and socks off. I fell onto the pillow as she lifted my legs and put the covers over me. I said thank you. She kissed me and I was out.
