CHINA LAKE LANDING STRIP - one hour later
The DEA Command van has pulled alongside the Bikester encampment. Terry
and Celeste watch the finish of the DEA's telephoto videotape of the drug
bust. As the chute opens in front of the fleeing Lear Jet, TK, watching
through the open side door of the van, cheers and the tape comes to an end.
Not only did Terry prevent the jet's certain escape, Celeste's fearless
pursuit of the dirt biker resulted in the quick capture of a major drug
dealer. The agent asks if it would be OK if they release the video of the
bust to the press. The DEA can always use some good press, so Terry and
Celeste say, "Sure, anything to help you guys out."
RIVER CAMPGROUND - two days later
Stopping for a couple days of R and R gives TK a chance to touch bases
with a few of his computer 'pen pals', or as he calls them, "Mouse
Pals". He finds out that someone has been beating the e-mail bushes
looking for him, also that two well dressed men in an expensive car had
appeared in Baker looking for him a few days after they left. Nobody told
them anything, and the only information they had was his e-mail address,
't-kid'. He immediately changes it to 'rollertk' and makes sure that
only a few very good friends know how to get hold of him. It sounds like
the men trying to find him were the lawyers from Atlas-Mega. TK is worried.
Just then, Terry comes back from doing a little fishing. "Well,
I've done that, fishing gets old, let's get going." Terry has a
destination in mind.
