He had taken out his new Lotus Elise and gone for a joy ride first.
"I'm here, I'm here, Elise," Lana mumbled.
"You're obsessed," Elise said.
That's a big deal, Elise continued.
"I'm glad you're down there, Elise," she said.
"Everyone's asleep, and I'm bored," Elise complained.
That's virtually impossible, Elise.
"I'll be rotating to the surface this afternoon," Elise said.
He'll be replacing Elise as your current roommate for the time being.
My friend Elise is on the special security team.
Elise's voice pulled Lana from her work.
"I had a feeling this week would be rough," Elise said with a smile.
Elise held out a meal bar, which Lana accepted.
We can access the emerops locations around here with Elise's security forces.
Lana jerked, afraid she'd been caught, before she realized Elise was calling over the command center's channels.
She leaned forward and slapped the pad, and Elise's grim face lit up the central screen.
"Heya," Elise said, flashing a quick smile.
What isn't what you expected, Elise?
Elise gave a few hand signals to her detail.
Wait, Elise, can't you tell me what's going on out there?
Elise hesitated then said, Frankly, I don't know.
Both Elise and the Guardian were grim about the world outside the compound, and neither explained exactly why.
Elise's news of the PMF fighting alongside her forces wasn't something Lana expected to hear.
"Elise, you're taking your men out to the west side for supplies tonight," the general replied.
The woman named Elise grimaced but made no response.
I won't subject you to Elise and her insubordinate rabble, but you'll remain with the other army seniors here as my advisors.
"On second thought, you can join Elise's men," the general replied in a clipped tone.
A moment later, Elise darted by with a hand laser in her grip, disappearing between the same buildings.
The general approached, catching Elise's eye.
Elise nodded in understanding.
"Hell, no," Elise snapped.
Elise lowered her laser as Lana blocked her shot and approached the man named Arnie.
Brady asked hoarsely, stopping beside Elise.
"If he moves too quickly, take your shot," Elise replied.
Elise followed his lead.
Elise rushed them, and Brady followed.
Elise grabbed at Arnie, who twisted free and followed Lana.
Elise shouted, leaping atop the nearest boulder with her laser aimed at him.
"Lana, you fool," Elise scolded, squatting beside them.
Elise grabbed her wrist, but Lana resisted again.
"Move, Elise," the general snapped, pushing the guard commander away.
You'll report to Elise tomorrow morning.
Elise sheathed her weapon with a glance at him.
One of Elise's men was waiting with a gurney.
Elise fell into step beside him after checking on Lana.
Elise gave him a sidelong glance.
Brady lifted Lana gently off the gurney and entered, following Elise through the waiting area into the bay beyond.
She was the opposite of Elise: delicate and sweet, quiet and soft-spoken.
"I'm here, Elise," the same man who greeted them at the gate said with some irritation as he entered through a side door.
"I want updates hourly," Elise ordered.
Elise turned her attention on Brady.
The doctor ignored her, and Elise left.
You army-types are worse than Elise's crew.
Elise always had extra anti-sleepers.
Elise's voice came from the darkened parking area.
Her smile faded at the look on Elise's face.
Elise pursed her lips, and Lana was surprised to see her eyes water.
Elise said nothing else, struggling to control her own emotions.
She thought of Elise's security detail and then of the Vice President, the President's staff, the renowned scholars and businessmen taking refuge there.
Elise nudged Lana when she continued to stare.
Elise had said the PMF soldiers were fighting alongside hers, and that they'd seen soldiers in Western uniforms.
Elise, I need a team to go down and test the air.
"I'm busy," Elise barked.
It was the blond special security woman, Elise, who burst into the med center.
Elise gave him an irritated look, reminding him again of how little respected the army-types were.
Elise was agitated at more than him.
"The missing little girl who got shot," Elise replied.
"She's too naïve …" Elise drifted off.
God help me, I hope it's soon, Elise responded, stuffing the meds the doc placed on his desk into a tactical bag.
"Yep. She's somewhere out west over there," Elise said with a wave of her hand towards the forest.
Elise turned away and stormed off, supplies in hand.
Lana had done exactly as Elise directed.
She stayed in her tree, waiting for Elise.
She'd removed her personal identifiers, hacked into the government's tracking mainframe to deactivate the implant in her brain, and changed into the black tactical uniform Elise brought her over her civilian grays.
Elise promised to find her by dusk, and together, they'd go west, to the Peace Command Center.
Elise didn't give the bird call they'd agreed on, so Lana said nothing.
She watched them go, startled to witness the men in Western uniforms that Elise had claimed to see.
Growing anxious, she turned her attention to the sound of the stream Elise had told her to follow if she didn't make it there by dusk.
Elise was going to help her.
Lana's heart skipped a beat, and she pulled out the tracker Elise gave her, starting through the forest towards the stream.
"You don't look like a spec ops soldier," he said, referring to the black uniform Elise insisted she wear.
"We found Elise," Dan said.
Elise will do well here.
She'd planned on Elise helping her escape to the west, where she could secure the Horsemen at the Peace Command Center.
She may even be able to track Elise with them, since she knew her ID number.
Why don't we bring in Elise?
"Elise it is," he said.
While Brady knew Lana was too afraid to leave his tent even if it wasn't guarded, he'd had to order Elise chained to a tree within view of four guards.
"Greenie knew we left," Elise said.
"Lana said she needed help getting to the Peace Command Center in Colorado, that Greenie was going to kill her once she found out what she'd done," Elise continued.
Elise was much larger than most women, but she was still smaller than him.
Elise did so grudgingly, taking in the PMF insurgents crowded around.
Lana sprang up from her corner of the couch and flung her arms around Elise.
"Lana, stop it," Elise groaned, pushing her away.
She pulled Elise to the couch.
Elise dropped onto it with another groan.
Elise glared at him.
He showed Lana the same scene he'd shown Elise.
"Allegedly," Elise added under her breath.
"No, Elise," Lana said in a hushed voice.
Elise demanded, grabbing her with a shake.
Elise released her, sitting back in shock.
Elise asked in a hushed voice.
He burned to know the answers to Elise's questions, not even able to fathom what the answer could be.
Dan rose at the command and gripped Elise's arm.
"Can you talk to Elise again?" he asked Dan.
He thought about what Elise said, that she'd been trying to take something west.
Elise would be horrified.
The look on Elise's face when she realized that Lana had known something was wrong at the Peak.
Elise's still pissed at you.
Elise had been loyal enough to help her.
"You and Elise?" he asked, surprised.
Elise said in irritation.
Elise and Dan were a good team, relaying hand signals and other silent communications with nothing more than a glance at each other.
Elise pursed her lips.
Brady's men had dropped her, Elise, and Dan—along with two others—into the forest by helicopter two hours before.
Elise looked over his shoulder.
Dan handed the tracker to Elise, who tapped the screen, pensive.
"Elise is plotting them," Dan said, gaze again on the tracker.
Been trying to teach her for weeks, Elise answered without looking up.
Elise and I will take out the rest, Dan said.
He patted her arm then moved to crouch beside Elise, waiting.
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.
More laser fire lit the area where Elise had gone.
She heard Elise's whistle.
Lana's heart stopped, and she opened her mouth to shout for Elise.
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.
Dan and Elise ducked into the dark entrance.
Elise called from the hallway.
"Come on," Elise said.
Elise nudged her, and she trailed Dan as he strode down another hall.
Lana slept until Elise woke her for breakfast by beating on her door in the morning.
"It's about time," Elise complained.
Lana frowned, looking Elise over from head to foot.
"Elise," she said in disapproval.
"Someone has to protect you," Elise replied with a smile.
Lana hadn't expected to sleep in so long but was grateful Elise had thought to leave her alone for the full night.
Elise straddled a chair, and Lana sat across from her.
"I don't see things as simply as you," Elise said.
You're the analyst, Elise prompted.
"I don't have any empirical evidence to suggest—" "Don't use that fed speak on me," Elise said with an exasperated sigh.
Elise, can I use your micro?
"Later. We got something to do first," Elise said, standing.
All your fancy training won't … Lana half-listened to Elise's lecture, thinking about how she could hack into her micro with Elise's.
Elise breezed by them, unaffected.
She didn't have Elise's physique; she was clearly not one of the genetically altered warriors.
Elise peeled off her shirt to reveal a snug undershirt that outlined the shape of her muscular upper body.
"We'll start with how to break some general holds," Elise said.
She felt like a flower next to a tree and stared, hoping Elise didn't take his offer seriously.
Elise said with enthusiasm.
"I sent Elise and Benny to teach Lana some self-defense," Brady said as they struck off in comfortable silence.
"Hey, Elise," Dan said, tapping the button behind his hear to access his personal net.
Lana was in the kitchenette, drinking water after her day with Elise.
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.
Elise's micro was locked out.
"Yeah," Brady agreed, eyes going to Elise's micro.
Elise had said to survive, and Lana had no doubt Brady was the only one who could help her.
Dan and Elise were there with three others.
"We thought we'd start at Lana's house," Elise said as they all walked towards the awaiting helo.
"Yeah, we know that now," Dan said with a look at Elise.
Elise knows her better than anyone, Brady said with a glance at the blond woman.
"You're underestimating her," Elise warned.
Brady and Elise exchanged a grim look.
"But she's smart," Elise countered.
Elise needed no other motivation than her friend was in trouble, and Brady hadn't yet digested how such tiny devices could collapse the countries of the world.
I don't know, Danny, Elise said in irritation.
He'd begun to like Elise even more since spending time with her.
Elise started off before he'd finished.
Elise said she was Lana's neighbor.
Elise was pacing and Dan calm.
Elise whipped out her micro and focused on the calculation.
But, Elise paused, studying the results, before continuing.
"You can give a fed a micro …" He took it from Elise.
"The emerops facility is …" Elise frowned and trailed off.
Follow me, Elise said and started forward.
"This is why the city looks abandoned," Elise mused.
Dan dropped beside him, followed by Elise and the other members of their team.
"Live a little, Elise," Dan said with a smile.
"We're about to walk under the next town," Elise said with a glance at her micro.
The soldier looked over his subdued rank then at Dan and Elise.
Elise is one of the fed's special security types.
Charlie greeted Dan and Elise then motioned for them to sit.
"We're looking for someone," Elise said and handed him her micro, which displayed Lana's picture.
"I heard they were headed back from Europe," Elise said with a frown.
Brady glanced up at Elise's hard tone, sensing she'd not yet absorbed the fact the government she served had splintered.
Charlie asked, tapping the screen of Elise's micro before handing it back.
He passed it to Elise, who looked at the sites Tim had identified.
"You found all but two," Dan said, looking over Elise's shoulder.
"We can't stop," Elise said.
You and Elise take this one in the south.
Elise won't let me stop.
"Not until we find Lana," Elise said.
"Thank you," Lana said awkwardly, recalling Elise's words that she'd never make it on the outside.
Elise says you used to call her to kill bugs in your room.
"There's nothing left," Elise said, distraught.
Elise appeared relieved then frowned.
Dan dropped beside him, followed by Elise.
"We're looking for this woman," Elise said, striding towards them.
Elise had a one-track mind and less diplomacy than either of them.
Dan snorted, and Brady joined Elise as she held out her micro.
Elise tucked the micro away and started down the hall ahead of the soldiers.
"Pardon our friend," Brady said, forcing himself to stay with the soldiers instead of racing down the hall with Elise.
Elise was walking among the survivors, her features growing irritated.
"She's not here," Elise complained, joining them.
Elise demanded, stepping forward again.
Elise started forward, until Brady leveled a glare on her.
Elise's cry made her look up.
Meanwhile, Elise loaded a mini-med-gun and shot Brady twice.
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.
"C'mon. They're holding the helo to take you home," Elise said, holding the door open.
She rose and trailed Elise out of the medical facility and into the awaiting helo.
"Elise. These two got some talking to do," Dan said.
Elise trotted to them and joined Dan.
He married Elise Koch in June 1862, but the following month he had an attack of pleurisy which proved the beginning of a long illness that ended only with his death.
He had seven children, only three of whom survived him - the distinguished physician Johann Albrecht Heinrich, and two daughters, one of them being Elise, Lessing's friend and correspondent.
Elise was there, one hand aiming the laser at the raging man with the other hand planted on Lana's shoulder to prevent her from entering the potential line of fire.
Elise snapped, tossing a glance over her shoulder at the brunette trying to wriggle free of her.
"So ends that walking tragedy," Elise said, standing at the cliff's edge and peering over it.
She controls everything, the East Coast infrastructure, the emerops depots, the recovery effort, Elise replied.
"She's too naÃ¯ve â€¦" Elise drifted off.
Brady watched them, sensing the depth of their friendship despite Elise's discomfort.
Brady's men had dropped her, Elise, and Danâ€”along with two othersâ€”into the forest by helicopter two hours before.
"I don't have any empirical evidence to suggestâ€”" "Don't use that fed speak on me," Elise said with an exasperated sigh.
"If you want to stay alive, you better learn to adapt," Elise advised.
All your fancy training won't â€¦ Lana half-listened to Elise's lecture, thinking about how she could hack into her micro with Elise's.
Even Elise's usual disdain for the regular military was welcome.
"You can give a fed a micro â€¦" He took it from Elise.
"The emerops facility is â€¦" Elise frowned and trailed off.
Everything east of here is a disaster, Elise said.
Dan and Elise rolled up on a military transport, and Brady waited for them as the others moved into the town.
Mike obeyed, and they walked through the myriad of tunnels until Elise began grumbling about the distance and Brady became disoriented.
This class ranges from sporty vehicles such as the MX-5 to derivatives of true racing thoroughbreds such as the Lotus Elise.
Called the Elise S, it uses a lower power 1.8-litre Toyota engine with variable valve timing.
