Come on down, Old Dan Tucker.
I didn't believe what Dan Brennan told me and I'm not sure I do now but I'm no fool.
Betsy and I had discussed my contacting After as suggested by Dan Brennan.
Your boy Dan Brennan got me into the Federal exit and entrance records at the Canada border!
Instead, I called fisherman Dan Brennan, figuring he might have arose with the dawn.
As long as I had the phone in my hand, I dialed Dan Brennan.
I wished Dan luck and thanked him again for sticking his neck in the noose on our behalf.
His best friend, Dan, tossed him a micro.
"I can't see how this could get much worse," Dan said.
"I'll contact the helo," Dan said with a wink and left.
He trotted up a set of shallow stairs chiseled into the mountain to the helipad where Dan waited.
He trotted to join Dan as the helo lowered from the sky.
A ladder lowered, and Brady vaulted onto it, followed by Dan.
"Brade, I think we should get outta here," Dan said.
Dan activated one of the buttons on his command headpiece that sent his rally orders out to the soldiers in the building.
He turned to address Dan, when the sagging building behind them exploded into flames and light.
Dan cursed as he trotted from an area to the side of the building.
"Brade, we've got one down," Dan called, motioning to a soldier carried between two others.
He met Dan's gaze and saw the same sense of dread on his counterpart's face.
Dan rallied his team and broke towards the east, where the first flares had appeared.
Brady had worked with Dan for fifteen years.
Dan had always been his second-in-command and most importantly, as good a friend as any of Brady's brothers.
Where did Dan last report in?
Give me Dan's last coords, and I'll see what I can do.
Check him, Dan grunted as the waiting medic in blue approached.
"Looks bad," Dan said.
"Major Brady, Dan," a gruff voice boomed.
General Greene motioned them forward, slowing when he saw Dan limp.
Brady tugged Dan's mask off, gaze roving the compound.
Brady exchanged a look with Dan.
Keeps him quiet, though, Dan quipped.
"We're fine, sir," Dan assured him.
He agreed; Dan needed a doctor.
Brady was as worried about Dan as any of his men.
"A warzone," Dan said.
He shared another look with Dan.
"Give the woman the keypad," Dan said in amusement, jabbing him in the ribs with an elbow.
Dan glanced towards her.
Instead, he watched red creep up Dan's face.
"Not much since being strung up by a savage at the bottom of the mountain, ma'am," Dan replied for him.
He lowered Dan into a chair outside the doctor's quarters and was about to sit for a breather when the general slapped him on the arm.
"You all right here, soldier?" he asked Dan gruffly.
Brady straightened and winked at Dan, who rolled his eyes in response.
Dan lay on one bed, asleep.
Well, Dan, it's good for you to know I can put you close to death.
Major Dan, a man with blond hair and dark eyes, sat in the bed across the aisle from her.
He turned away and spoke in his broken voice to the man called Dan.
He returned to the main medical bay, where he'd taken up a bed near Dan's.
Dan rose and joined Brady.
He looked at Dan, and the two shared a thought without speaking.
"Yeah, it's creepy," Dan agreed.
Brady looked at Dan, who rolled his eyes.
Dan asked quietly, joining him in the storage room.
Dan nodded and limped away, speaking into his communicator.
Dan asked, equally surprised.
"Aw, hell," Dan said as he appeared in the doorway.
Brady looked at Dan, who shook his head.
"Here's her shit," Dan said, ducking into the tent.
Dan shook his head and flung himself down across from him, retrieving the sealed vault.
"We found Elise," Dan said.
He looked up at Dan's curious tone.
Dan asked, suddenly interested.
"Just when I start to think you've gone soft …" Dan said and shook his head.
Brady, Dan, and another man breezed past her.
From Dan's whiplike body to Brady's feline-like musculature to the stranger's towering frame, there was no mistaking them for normal soldiers.
He gave the coordinates to Dan and replaced the micro in his pocket.
Dan entered their command tent and threw down a chunk of blackened metal.
"Something made them leave," Dan reminded him.
Brady didn't think Dan was far off.
"You have no idea how hard it was to tie her to that damn tree," Dan said.
Dan pulled the tape from her mouth, and the first words out were curses.
Dan showed her his viewer with the images he'd taken the day before.
"If you know what happened," Dan said, "you damn well better tell us."
"Let's go get her, Dan," he ordered and turned away.
Dan shot him a look of amusement before they both turned.
Dan touched his thumb to the thumb pads, and her chains fell away.
She straightened finally with an angry look at Dan, who smiled in response.
Dan led them to Brady's tent and pushed the tent flap open.
"We wanted to talk to you about the Peak," Dan started, pulling a chair near them.
Dan said with a startled laugh.
"You knew this would happen," Brady said, pointing to the picture on Dan's viewer.
Brady glanced at Dan, his face echoing his own puzzlement.
Dan rose at the command and gripped Elise's arm.
I need Dan, now.
Dan asked in a hushed tone.
"Can you talk to Elise again?" he asked Dan.
Dan slapped him on the arm and strode out.
Dan's got her chained to a tree, she's so mad, Brady said.
Dan appeared soon after, and they sparred until Dan finally signaled he was finished.
"I thought you wanted to hit the comms site today," Dan added.
"We'll have everything down by tomorrow morning," Dan said, following his gaze to a pallet.
He gave a sidelong look at Dan.
"I'm not saying she didn't try," Dan said with a snort.
Brady ignored Dan, eyes taking in the progress of their preparations to leave.
Dan's estimates were always conservative.
Send the coords to Dan.
I'll get it, Dan said, crossing to the kitchen, where one whole cabinet was filled with medical supplies.
Dan called, tossing a small package.
Dan's going to move you somewhere safe today to one of our permanent sites.
Dan exclaimed happily, pulling chocolate out of the cabinet.
Dan ignored his warning and snagged two pieces of the precious few he had remaining.
"It's supposed to alleviate bad moods," Dan said to Lana.
The grim note in Dan's voice made Brady quicken his movements.
"Yeah. The girls are fine," Dan said.
Elise and Dan were a good team, relaying hand signals and other silent communications with nothing more than a glance at each other.
Dan leaned back into the hollow of the tree in which they'd taken refuge.
Soon after, the men in black mowed down two of Dan's men, and the three of them were left to fend for themselves.
Dan settled onto his knees and flipped out a tracker.
Dan handed the tracker to Elise, who tapped the screen, pensive.
Dan had given her a jacket, but their slow crawl through the forest had left her soaked and shivering.
"Elise is plotting them," Dan said, gaze again on the tracker.
"Send our coords, too, so they don't blow us up," Dan directed in a hushed voice.
"So, no, that won't work," Dan said to the person on the other end of his conversation.
Elise and I will take out the rest, Dan said.
The scent of burnt metal and flesh soon followed, then chaos as Elise and Dan moved away from her, each going in the opposite direction under the cover of smoke.
Another man dropped, this time from Dan's direction.
She heard the sounds of a physical scuffle and another shot from Dan's direction.
Two more of his men moved cautiously from the forest, looking for Elise or Dan to appear.
Dan and Elise rose from the bushes and lowered their weapons.
Dan ran ahead of them, Elise behind, and they flew down a deer path to a creek, then darted across rocks to the other bank.
Cold water soaked Lana's boots as Dan kept them on the creek's edge for a few hundred meters before veering into the surrounding forest.
Dan hopped onto a boulder and placed his hand on the wall.
"Dan, go," Brady ordered, releasing her.
Dan and Elise ducked into the dark entrance.
Dan led them into a narrow hall and to another locked door.
Elise nudged her, and she trailed Dan as he strode down another hall.
He'll probably be pissed at me, so don't get comfortable, Dan said, waving her in.
Didn't take a damn thing, Dan reported from his position inside the building.
"There are a few other fed facilities around here," Dan said.
He kept Dan and two others with him.
Dan asked with a long look at him.
Dan knew him well enough not to ask anything else, and they set off on foot.
Christ, she'll be in tears, Dan said with a shake of his head.
"Go easy on her," Dan advised.
"I found another of those keypads," Brady said, ignoring Dan's words.
"This is creepy," Dan voiced his concerns.
Dan met him in the hall, and they went to the cafeteria together.
"Hey, Elise," Dan said, tapping the button behind his hear to access his personal net.
Brady got his food as the two talked, seating himself before he looked to Dan again.
"Don't think so," Dan said.
He looked up to find Dan studying him closely.
He didn't think his abruptness any more clipped than usual, but Dan would knew the difference.
"Not a good sign," Dan agreed.
He should've known better than not to warn Dan what Lana could do if she got a hold of a micro, even if it was Elise's.
Dan stayed behind where your helo went down to search.
Dan searched the whole area, for ten kilometers out in every direction he could.
While he trusted Dan, he couldn't help feeling that Lana was more capable of fending for herself than they gave her credit for, if only because she knew how important it was to keep the Horsemen safe.
Dan and Elise were there with three others.
"Dan," Brady greeted his friend warmly and shook his hand.
I wouldn't say good, Dan replied.
"We searched it from top to bottom," Dan added.
"Yeah, we know that now," Dan said with a look at Elise.
"My friends," Dan said in a softer tone, "I don't like saying this, but be prepared for the worst.
Brady's chest had tightened at Dan's words, and he felt fear for the first time since he was a kid in basic training and had his first brush with his own mortality.
Dan winked at him and followed.
A couple of hours later, Dan's voice came across his net.
Brady asked, alarmed by the grimness of Dan's voice.
Dan added quickly, "Not Lana's."
Frustrated, he sent Dan a rally call and returned to the crater.
Elise was pacing and Dan calm.
"We have no way of knowing where she went or how far," Dan pointed out.
"Oh dear god," Dan said with a snort.
I recommend we start there, Dan said.
"Here, Dan!" he called and knelt.
"Underground railroad," Dan said.
"Let's see where it goes," Dan said.
Dan dropped beside him, followed by Elise and the other members of their team.
"Live a little, Elise," Dan said with a smile.
"We don't have anything this elaborate where we are from," Dan said.
The soldier looked over his subdued rank then at Dan and Elise.
Charlie greeted Dan and Elise then motioned for them to sit.
Brady asked, exchanging a look with Dan.
"We did," Dan answered.
"You found all but two," Dan said, looking over Elise's shoulder.
"If you can spare someone to guide us to the first of the emerops facilities, we'd appreciate it," Dan said.
Dan asked, gazing at the micro.
"Damn right I can run that fast," Dan said.
Dan says the condos were leveled about two days after the helo went down.
"Not above ground," Dan replied.
Dan dropped beside him, followed by Elise.
Brady glanced at Dan.
Dan snorted, and Brady joined Elise as she held out her micro.
Go stand by Dan and keep quiet.
"You tossed her out," Dan said.
"She begged me to let her leave," Mike replied, unaffected by Dan's tone.
If Dan were with him, he'd agree: this was the fun part of their job.
The blond Amazon and Dan raced toward her from the gutted forest.
Dan dropped beside her, and the two lifted Brady's body from her lap and stretched him out.
Dan tore Brady's uniform open then pulled out a small emergency medical kit and slapped skin grafts over the two wounds.
But he was battered beyond recognition from the helo crash, Dan said.
Brady's body was placed on the helo, and Lana climbed in with him while Dan and Elise stayed with Jack.
Elise appeared in the doorway with Dan.
You need to clean up and eat, Dan directed.
"I'll take care of him," Dan said from his seat in the corner.
"Wait 'til you see this place," Dan said, leading him out of the room.
Still exhausted, he sat next to Dan in the helo that transported them from the medical facility to the lush green foothills of the Rockies.
"No, Jack," Dan said.
Dan bypassed the mansion and led him towards the lake, where two forms stood on a large dock.
"Elise. These two got some talking to do," Dan said.
Elise trotted to them and joined Dan.
