Brady looked up from the radar imaging on the screen before him. Dan entered their command tent and threw down a chunk of blackened metal.

"That's it," he said. "That's all that remains of the command center on the Peak."

"That's not our work," Brady said and lifted the metal. "What happened?"

"Bodies and a whole lot of that. We think General Greene and a few others got away. We intercepted some emergency transmissions but couldn't get everything because of the electromagnetic field."

"Our prisoners are the only survivors. And I don't know they knew anything."

"Something made them leave," Dan reminded him. "I think Angel will just cry if you ask her anything. Why don't we bring in Elise?"

Brady didn't think Dan was far off. The woman in his tent was something else. He still didn't fathom what had driven her to leave the Peak in the first place when she clearly couldn't even make it down the side of the mountain on her own.

He touched the micros in his cargo pocket as he rose, recalling his night. He was a saint for letting her out of his bed the night before. The moment their bodies touched, he could think of little else than how long it had been since he had a woman and how much he'd wanted Angel since soon after he'd started talking to her weeks ago. He doubted Tim would appreciate him making moves on her.
