Mike smiled to soften the words.
She grabbed the mike and answered.
"She's a good girl," Mike said.
At last, they arrived at a metal door that Mike swung open to reveal a tiny submersible docked.
"I have a feeling these folks would like to cross the river," Mike said and motioned to Brady.
Mike, you'll have to call Jim and let him know to meet them.
The shout went unnoticed until the panicked bartender grabbed the mike of the lead rocker.
"Lana, Mike won't risk sending anyone over there, not after the three who went and never came back," Kelli said.

Mike gazed towards the Mississippi.
"The girl misses her family, Mike," Kelli said.
Mike rose and left.
Lana glanced at Mike as he released her and dashed into the nearest of the three buildings.

Mike motioned for her to follow.
Mike took them right, and the air grew even cooler.
"Thank you, Mike," she replied and stepped forward.
Let me find Mike, one of the soldiers said.
Mike hesitated long enough for Brady to assess the civilian knew where she was.
"Smuggled her via the subs across the river," Mike said.
"She begged me to let her leave," Mike replied, unaffected by Dan's tone.

Lana flushed at the matter-of-fact tone Mike, Kelli's husband, took.
Just please ask Mike to help me get across.
All Mike had to do was get her across the river.

Mike handles the coordination with them.
"Meat's hard to come by," Mike reminded them, crouching nearby.
No more Mike Hammer stuff from now on.
