Delta Green AAR: State of Jefferson #0 Preparation

TL:DR: PTBP inspired me to run a Delta Green game and put together a campaign setting. To help with note taking and motivation, I decided to put together some After-Action reports and post them here.
-=-=-=-

Introduction

I run a weekly 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons game. Every Tuesday night for two years at this point for 6 PCs. Level 14, going on 15 in an adapted version of Paizo Publishing's Ironfang Invasion adventure path. We’ve probably got another six months of solid play, aiming for a finish at around level 18. Running this game for this long taught me a lot, even though it wasn’t my first long runner. But one thing it taught me above all else is:
I don’t want to run Dungeons and Dragons or anything like it anytime soon.
There's a whole tirade about why that is, but suffice to say a few months ago I started looking for a new system to replace 5e once my Tuesday night group was done with it. Plenty of good games stuck their heads up (Band of Blades/Blades in the Dark being my favourite) but none seemed to be a good fit for six people. Then I stumbled across PTBP and Delta Green.
I had played some CoC years ago and Sci-Fi Horror has to be my favourite genre of all time, tack on the modern setting and I was hooked. I had spent many hours reading SCPs and even a few writing some, plus running a Hunter:The Vigil game years back and even playing a Hunter LARP in the same time period. Plus the PTBP boys have such an infectious enthusiasm.
And then I actually ran a short 2-session story and realised that 6 PC Delta Green would be a nightmare. With the modern setting and the investigative style, players are constantly going off on tangents or separating the party. With 4 people and a tense feel, people stay interested, but with six (and more importantly, MY SIX), there is no way that it would be a cohesive session.
So I said what every ForeverDM says;
“This can become my campaign setting that I always say I’m working on!”
So I started writing a campaign setting for a Delta Green game that may never come. Enabling me to fully flesh out an entire region complete with NPCs, plots, eldritch horrors and the works! I’d slowly find players, run each of them through individual ‘Spookening’ sessions to show their origins into the Opera. It’d be dope! Having just finished my Honours Thesis, I wanted to establish writing as something I liked, not something I did for the expensive paper.
My Girlfriend was interested from the start and wanted desperately to play the game when it ran. I was talking about it a bit to different folks and when they asked ‘When is it running?’ or ‘Can I play?’ I would always say it wasn’t near ready, I mean, I hadn’t even mapped out all the airports in the region, how could I run a game there without knowing where the airports are? Eventually, I got cornered by four players (including my girlfriend) who wanted to be in the game, had a time, place and wanted to know if I would do it. This was the first lesson Delta Green taught me.
“Your campaign setting is never finished and nothing will make you write your important stuff like a game in three hours.”
So, I ran session 1 on a Sunday evening and haven’t looked back. This AAR will be an account of the setting, the story, and our agents as they travel a hopefully extreme and entertaining story. Hopefully, none of them end up on here since I’ll also try to include my Keeper perspective and process of putting together this setting.
Finally, a massive thank you to the PTBP boys, I’m not entirely up to date as of writing this (EP58) but I’m stoked to be an Honorary Police Officer and owe a lot of these ideas and growth to Zach’s style and the boy's hijinks.

The Setting.

As a preface, I’m not an American. I’m an Australian who’s never been to the Western Hemisphere. So my apologies for butchering your country, your towns, and your overall culture. I've moved some history around and changed some events to make my timeline work. Hopefully it's not offensive.
The basis and name of the setting is something I learned about from another podcast (shout out the BehindTheBastards and ItCouldHappenHere). The State of Jefferson is a secessionist movement in rural Northern California and Southern Oregon. Essentially a right-wing/rural response to the liberal cities of LA and Portland, these regions want to secede from California and Oregon, becoming the 51st American state. A Pacific NorthWest setting gives tonnes of great locales, from Redwood forests, mountain peaks, wild rivers and even some desert thrown in there. Couple this with problems with limited law enforcement, a multicultural history, and the stories write themselves.
I started by putting a map together since that always helps me visualise what I’m working with, plus at this point, this was just a campaign setting, not an active game. I made this map by taking one of the proposed State of Jefferson maps that I liked, editing out the state names, then searching for the incorporated cities of each county, along with their county seats. I didn’t use many scales, as you can see, and it makes Weaverville look really important even though it has a population of around 3,600. I also placed the state capital in Redding, after looking at the discourse around SOJ, turns out some want it to be Yreka, CA, since that was first suggested back in the sixties. But I couldn’t see that happening now. So I ended up with this map: https://imgur.com/a/Bx5Mnv6
So now I needed to make the State of Jefferson a thing, how would that happen in 2020?
I could see Trump doing it, in a crazy situation.
Jefferson counties are pretty solidly Republican, for the same reasons they want to be their own state to begin with. So I imagined a 2020 electoral race where Trump engaged with these far-right groups like the militias and such, promising a look into a 51st state. But saying it and doing it are two separate things. So let's ratchet up the tension some more.
Trump wins 2020, promising to look into the State of Jefferson. 2021 Trump has a massive stroke. Initially, it looks like he’s not going to pull through, the GOP starts planning for his replacement to step up. Current VP is an old-school Neocon named Andrew Cohen. But Trump does pull through and despite some major health concerns, seems convinced to stay in the White House. The old-school Neocons behind Andrew Cohen that used to be the soul of the GOP smelled power again and don’t want to give in, meanwhile the New-Right cultural conservatives backing Trump smell a coup. The GOP starts to implode. Trump, desperate to solidify his base, is firing out executive orders left, right and center. One of them is the creation of the State of Jefferson. A year later, it's 2022, Andrew Cohen is acting President and national politics is a shitshow. So many executive orders went out that it's impossible to pull them all back and it looks like Jefferson is going to stick.
But our players are going to be Federal agents, what are they doing in this backwoods state? Well, I imagine a new state appearing largely out of nowhere would throw all the federal departments a curveball. Suddenly they need to work out if the FBI needs a headquarters in Redding, what about DoD? DoJ? So they send a big audit team to work out what federal government efforts would be needed in the new state. This would be called ‘The Office of Temporary Handover’ and would be the taskforce my players would be assigned to. What I wrote up is as follows:

Office of Temporary Handover

A fifty person strong taskforce, the OTH is made of representatives of a large variety of shifting government departments. Their job was originally twofold:
-Maintain the essential functions of their organisations during the handover and establishment of the state.
-Assess the State of Jefferson for their various organisations, in regards to offices, resources, and personnel.
Officially the Federal Office of Temporary Handover was established on the 1st of April, 2022 at 2042 South Market St in Redding, which was to be the state capitol (not without a considerable fight from Chico, Eureka, and Yreka). Originally the OTH was headed up by Brennan Bartlet from the Department of Labour. Originally the DOL had intended the main aspects of the OTH to be assessing manpower requirements to then be passed onto the government departments to fulfill.
However, quickly after arriving on the ground in Redding, OTH leaders found that the twin regions of Southern Oregon and Northern California were a mess. Thirty years of, in some cases, criminal negligence from state governments had resulted in thousands of missed assessments, unsolved cases, and questionable decisions. The first big scoop was found by an analyst for the Treasury Department (Kyle Chapman) who found that all judicial efforts undertaken in the town of Paisley in Lake County had been taken over by the Millennium Forestry Company. Pulling on this string revealed the start of the problems for the OTH.
Quickly, Bartlet was replaced by Agent Luciano Pareja from the Department of Homeland security. The call went wide to nearly every single federal department to get their asses to Jefferson and work out what was going wrong in their respective fields. 2042 South Market street became a circus with the Department of Agriculture surveyors sharing offices with Aviation officials while the Department of Defence investigators camp out in the staircase.
It was during these initial investigations that things got interesting for those who were paying attention. The initial deluge of cases caught up all the obvious things, there had been no services conducted on the East Coast Cable Terminus in Point Arena was overdue for servicing by fifteen years, there were exactly fifteen missing persons reported in Modoc county national parks four years in a row and Douglas County sheriff Lyle Parsins has held the position for ten years despite the county records holding death certificates Parsins from 2007,2017 and 2019.
These odd reports languished in the stacks upon stacks of issues reported and aside from being mildly interesting when they were discovered, there were bigger fish to fry. Kyle Chapman later revealed a conspiracy of kickbacks and corruption between the Millennium Forestry and the Lake County supervisory council worth more than 13 million dollars, earning himself a tasty promotion. At the same time, the DA of Siskyou county was gunned down by a motorcyclist in Dorris. Two things became clear to everyone working in the OTH;
  1. There is so much to uncover in Jefferson that the real task is finding the biggest malfeasance you can and riding that investigation all the way to the top.
  2. The bigger the malfeasance, the bigger the risk that someone might try to take it from you or that it might blow up in your face.
This allowed those strange cases that were more interesting than juicy to slip through the cracks but also caused the OTH offices to become a den of paranoia staffed by some of the most ambitious young workers for these federal departments.
Its been two months since Kyle Chapman’s case hit the state court in Redding and 2042 South Market has spilled out into the parking lot with a massive gazebo. It's a hot summer and there is the promise of promotion around every corner as our PC’s arrive. The right and wrong kind of people have started to see the dots that need connecting, here's hoping someone stops finding dots.
-=-=-=-=-=-
Note: Sam, Bree, James, and Roni, if you have somehow ended up here, turn back now.
Finally, we needed a bad guy. This was the thing I had been avoiding, in favor of working out how many and where all the military bases are in Northern Cali and Southern Oregon (creating a real suspicious google history along the way). Being an investigative and paranoia based game about cults and conspiracy, I didn’t want to just to a ‘Monster of the Week’ style game. Plus one of my players is pretty well versed in his Cthulhu mythos, so I didn’t want to do something standard. Which made me want to stay away from Deep ones and fishbits (although maybe I can work the absence of Deep ones a plot point later on?)
So what do I have? I’ve got a need for a massive conspiracy, lots of pristine wilderness, a history of big American Indian tribes, Spanish Colonisation and American power. Plus a new state.
I know, let’s make the new state the conspiracy.
For some reason making this new state is part of some eldritch ritual about power and such. Sounds dope. Which Old God cares about human power structures and the corruption of man? Old buddy Nylarthotep.
Bam, we’ve got a non-standard bad guy and a huge conspiracy that can be staring them in the face the whole time. It turns the passive hints about the chaos of creating a new state into subtle easter eggs dotting the campaign.
But I also don’t want the eldritch ritual to be already done. Gotta give the players a chance to die trying to save the world. So perhaps it's just a step in the overall ritual. How many steps are there in the ritual? Well, a d20 roll tells me that there’s 16. It sounds like a good number to me. A story was coming together:
It was thousands of years past the original humans encountered the being known as Emperor of Sky and Earth, Ne-ab Gendumahaah, or simply the Spirit of Man, an implicit force in the Northern United States that influenced the minds of the powerful through dreams and visions. It would be the dreams of Ne-Ab Gendumahaah that would lead Rabbit Foot to solidify the Shasta people into a great confederacy. Where his favour goes, great power forms and those powerful will become great.
In reality, The Spirit of Man is an aspect of Nylarthotep, the chaos messenger of the Sultan, Azzathoth. What is happening in the North West is one spark of weakness that plays out as a flame of weakness against Azzathoth by his agent. A fleck of paint and pain on a tapestry millions of years and miles old.
The original intention of the Spirit of Man was the completion of sixteen rituals across the region. As more and more of these rituals would be completed they would weaken the differences between realities, these would corrupt the minds and world to the whims of those who would be powerful, granting them longevity and even passively twisting the world to support them. But it would weaken the nature of reality for all others, bringing in great monsters and factors. If all sixteen rituals were completed the Spirit of Man would be brought forward to bequeath true power onto the successful, in reality, the knowledge of Nylarthotep would be its own downfall as the invoker would be rent asunder and the damage wrought by the pursuit would wink throughout the cosmos.
The first ritual would be completed by a shaman of the Goshute People 30,000 Years ago. By the year 1700, the Shasta people had completed four rituals in total, this created the most powerful tribal confederacy of the West Coast. But the native Americans feared Ne-Ab Gendumahaah, intensely fearful of the give and take of existence, were difficult to enrapture to the power of the Spirit, but the White man was not. The Spanish would complete six rituals in the period between 1660 and 1840. The American people have completed five since the Union arrived, the last being the consecration of the Redding State Legislature. Now forces move to complete the final ritual as the Office of Temporary Handover comes into the picture. The players have to discover the connections between the rituals and attempt to stop the cabal of the rich and powerful before millions of people are killed.
-=-=-
This will leave the players investigating the fallout of rituals conducted long in the past, trying to put the dots together in time to stop the last few being completed.
This was about all I had going into session one. Since then we’ve had four total sessions and it's been a ride. Next time I’ll talk about session one and individual session planning/running. Thankyou for reading this and thank you again to the PTBP boys and community for being so amazing.
P.S - I tried to settle on a campaign theme like PTBP's No Backbone, at this point I'm split between Two Gallants - Fly Low Carrion Crow and Boogeyman - Black Casino and the Ghost.

Cargo ch 2

previously on Cargo- https://www.reddit.com/Wholesomenosleep/comments/a7kaa2/cargo/
If Azzy, the all-powerful queen was going to select a motorcycle (from her massive vehicle collection) Luke knew better then to try to keep up with her in a normal car. Luke had learned to ride from his father, who had actually biked and Europe as a teen. During the few years of his life when Luke owned a bike, he had seen some very aggressive riders and dangerous situations, which inspired him to switch to public transportation.
Azzy flew out of the underground parking garage on her neon blue Suzuki. Luke matched her style and speed, working under the assumption that Azzy had some kind of supernatural trick up her sleeve that would prevent them from getting pulled over.
The pair rode deep into wine country, past the vineyards and Indian casinos. They swerved around cars, through off-road tunnels and pathways, until they reached an unusual field. Pulling up, it appeared to be a cornfield. But as they passed the gate, the corn opened into a field of wheat, and then hay (with bales appearing out of nowhere.)
“We’re here,” Azzy said as she pulled up behind a massive bale of hay. “Park your bike next to mine, we can hide them in the hay.”
“Where is here?” Luke asked as he did what she asked, allowing his borrowed bike to be engulfed by the bale.
“This is one of many places where the leylines intersect to create a portal to hell itself. Basically, it’s like a specially made table for ritual sacrifice. My dad used to bring me here all the time.”
“Really?” Luke asked as he stretched his back. He looked at his watch- they had been riding for nearly four hours.
“Yeah, I imagine he was a little disappointed that I took after my mom. And when I cut his heart out.”
“You seem really proud of that,” Luke muttered.
“Sorry,” Azzy replied as she searched the bale, pulling out a backpack. “Military Food rations- score!”
“I’m not hungry.”
Azzy shook her head as she took a seat by his side. “Look, I’m sorry I offended you. I know you watched your father die of cancer but that was totally different- my father was not a good person, he was literally a demon king. I mean, he brought me here to witness his followers offering him blood sacrifices.”
“But he loved you.” Luke stared at her with his dark eyes filled with truth and compassion. “Your father could have killed you at any time but he loved you enough to keep you safe.”
Azzy bit her lip in visible confusion. “I-I’ve never thought of it that way. I always thought it was because he wanted me to rule the world as his 2nd in command- but yeah, that would require some level of parental love.” She started to dig through the food, coming up with a package of crackers. “Please, you have to eat something.”
“Fine,” Luke said, opening the package to be polite. The crackers looked like faded cardboard but tasted like typical cheap butter cookies.
“So, what was the last thing your father said to you?” Azzy asked a little too casually.
“He said he was proud of the person I was and the person I would become. You?”
“My dad as he was bleeding out said, with a smile, ‘I couldn’t have asked for a better daughter.'”
“What?”
“It was all a sick joke to him. My dad wanted to use his last words to cement the fact that everything; my rebellion, his death- it was all part of his plan to make me just like him. ”
“But you’re not like him?”
“Why was that a question?”
Luke stuffed his mouth full of crackers and turned away with a shrug.
Azzy took a handful of hay and hurled it at his back. “Get some sleep. I’ll wake you when the party starts.”
There would be no need. At around midnight the caravan of trucks, vans, and trailers started to arrive, and they weren’t exactly subtle. Luke awoke right away to the sounds of car horns, screams, and dub-step music. “What now, Azzy?” A battle was coming, that much was certain.
“We wait for the psycho-sheep to line up and present their offerings.”
“Offerings?”
“You don’t want to know,” she muttered. A sword appeared in Azzy’s hand and she quickly made a second one for Luke. “It will be the first, and probably the only time when we can get a view of everyone out in the open.”
Luke scanned the crowd, there were a few people emerging; punks, skinheads, and even a few people in suits. They appeared to be contributing wood, metal and other scrap material towards the creation of a stage-like alter.
“Let’s roll,” Azzy said as she sheathed her sword.
Out of the corner of his eye, Luke saw something sparkly in the bed of a dark blue truck. “Yeah, copy that, right behind you.” Luke made his way to the truck, as Azzy disappeared in the opposite direction. As he got closer he could see a figure in the moonlight; a long-haired woman with his wife’s wedding ring. But it wasn’t Kelsey. This woman was abnormally thin like a heroin addict and a blonde. “Who are you, where is my wife?”
The woman turned her head like a mannequin. “Nevin’s ex? She’ll be dealt with soon enough.” Her lips cracked into a disturbing smile. “But you can take this thing.” The woman threw what appeared to be a trash bag.
Luke knew to catch it. Whatever was inside was trembling, whimpering. He tore open the bag to find little Shannon. The toddler’s face was bruised and bloody but her sparkly blue eyes looked at him with innocence and hope. “Hi Shannon, it’s me,” Luke’s voice was already breaking, “everything is going to be ok. We’re going to find Mommy and we’re going to go home.”
Up until then, Luke had kept his composure but when Shannon opened her mouth to speak and only a gasp came out- something broke in him. By the light of the moon, he could see the bruises on her neck. Someone had tried to strangle her. Tears filled Luke’s eyes, blurring his vision. His mind had no idea what to do, but his body seemed to have a plan of its own.
First blink- He was standing over the blonde woman’s dismembered corpse, his new sword dripping with blood. He could feel Shannon gripping his back. Somehow he had crafted a carrier out of the trash bag.
Second blink- Luke was forcing his way through the crowd while carrying the blonde woman’s severed head. He could hear Azzy screaming for him to stop but he couldn’t even if he wanted to. His wife, Kelsey, was naked on the altar, her body beaten and bloody. It was clear she had been raped repeatedly and was about to be sexually assaulted again by a man wearing an abnormally realistic bull mask. Yeah, whoever that was had beheaded a live bull: the blood was still dripping down his neck and chest.
Third blink- Luke was stabbing the man in the neck. Somehow Azzy had rescued Kelsey and was carrying her body in her arms while still screaming at Luke to stop. But his blade had already torn through the man’s back. He twisted the sword with a smile as he tore out his back (while ripping off the man’s mask- it was Nevin Brooks.)
Fire-coated zombie hands reached up from the alter, pinning Nevin’s body to the ‘stage.’
Azzy raised her hand, opening a portal back to the location of the bikes. “Luke, we need to run- NOW!”
Luke took a step back as more burning hands emerged, pulling down the followers one by one as hellish treats for their demon lord.
“Get on your bike and follow me before-” it was too late.
Nevin’s body sat up with a maniacal laughter. He cracked his neck, and then his shoulder. “Hello, princess.” That wasn’t Nevin’s voice.
Luke had only met Nevin a few times but this voice was strange; oddly deep with a distinct accent.
Azzy stood with a death glare. “Hello, Dad.”
Luke made a dash for the bikes, fully expecting a barrage of fireballs.
But no- Azzy’s father was just standing there, laughing. “Don’t worry, my princess, I will allow you to escape, tend to your wounded.”
“How kind of you,” Azzy muttered. “I see your years in hell have made you a better person.”
The demon chuckled. “The next time we meet I will have my grandson at my side.”
“You leave my child out this.”
“This? His bloodline- His destiny?”
“I killed you once I can do it again.”
“I have no doubt. As I said all those years ago, ‘I couldn’t have asked for a better daughter.'” The demon silently clapped his hands, opening a portal of his own.
Luke caught a quick glimpse of where the demon was going before he vanished. ‘Walmart?’ He looked at Azzy to see if she had noticed the same thing.
Her hands were shaking. “This is all your fault.”
“My fault?”
“Yes, this was a recon mission- but you had to go full ‘Michael Myers’; hacking people into pieces- you allowed my father to escape from hell!”
“So you weren’t expecting to see your father?”
“No, I was not,” Azzy said as she opened a portal to a hospital parking lot. “I had heard rumors of a powerful demon making an attempt at the mortal realm. I’m sure my father had heard the same and when YOUR little stunt opened the gates of hell he took the opportunity to lock on to my location.”
“I’m really sorry.” Luke held his daughter close as he hopped on his bike and quickly followed Azzy.
She pulled into a parking space. “We’re here.”
Under the light of the moon, she carried Kelsey into the emergency room. It was clear where they were: the hospital Azzy ran as administrator. Also, the place where her husband resided as an angel. “Luke, you stay with your family. My medical staff will take care of everything.”
“Ok,” Luke replied as a nurse took little Shannon from him, to bring her to an exam room. “Where are you going?”
Azzy was already walking away, towards the main elevators. “I need to talk to my husband about protecting my son.”
Luke stayed with his wife and daughter grateful they were safe. But there was still the matter of Azzy’s father. Whenever he closed his eyes he could see the demon’s face. “Vega?”
“That’s my name,” said the long-haired man with the surfer voice and the ice blue eyes.
Luke blinked. He had been resting his head on his sleeping wife’s chest, to hear her heart. But now he clearly heard a voice coming from inside the room. “Hello?”
There was a mirror in the room and looking at him was the tall blonde man with a ghostly, vacant stare. “Are you scared?”
Luke actually was not. This wasn’t his fight; Vega was here for Azzy and possibly Azzy’s little boy. “Your daughter has your eyes.”
This caused Vega to smile. “Can I come in?”
“Are you a vampire?”
That caused Vega to double over in laughter. “No, I don’t require permission to cross into this realm, but it would be nice to know if I had an ally- a fellow father.”
I looked to little Shannon asleep in a nearby bed. I loved my daughter, but then again she wasn’t my biological daughter- she had a father who was pure evil; a man whose death may have accidentally caused Vega’s resurrection.
“How about a friend of a friend?” asked a different voice.
I looked around to find a lizard crawling at my feet. It was transparent, like a shadow, until it stepped into Vega’s line of sight. The magical ‘light’ from the mirror caused the details of the lizard to appear; it was a pink axolotl with rainbow gills and strange neon green wings.
“W-T-F?” Vega was laughing so loud I was surprised that both my wife and daughter remained asleep. “Do I know you?”
“Free me from this form and you will,” the axolotl’s voice was adorable, like something from the show, ‘SpongeBob SquarePants.’
“Who gave you this form?” Vega asked.
“The ruler of heaven, he claimed it was so I could live as a guardian to Azzy’s son, Lucas.”
Vega stopped laughing at stood straight. “You mean your son.” A blast of light engulfed the lizard. When the light faded a familiar dark-haired man knelt before Vega. “Remy Desilva, it’s been ages.” Vega looked at me to explain. “I knew this a–hole when he and Azzy were just kids, they would pickpocket tourists on the beaches of Hawaii while his old man and I partied with hookers.”
“I know who he is,” Luke said with a sense of anger. “Azzy said you were her childhood best friend who also happens to be the father of her kid! And now here you are trying to make a deal with Azzy’s father? What the hell are you? Why should any of us trust you?”
“Because Azzy can’t be trusted. The grief over his husband’s death has driven her to madness.”
“But doesn’t her husband live here- in this hospital as an angel?” Luke glanced around for any evidence of that fact. This was Azzy’s hospital, she was somewhere in the building while they were practically planning her assassination.
“Her husband also cannot be trusted. His powers are limited.”
Vega was smiling a big, evil grin. He moved his hands to widen the portal and easily stepped through, into the room. “Remy, to prove where your loyalties lie, I will need you to bring me my grandson.”
“No!” Luke felt a sharp pain in his chest. He had made the wrong decision. “This isn’t right. If either of you truly cared about Azzy you wouldn’t be trying to take the only family she has left.”
“And what would you suggest we do?” Vega asked with a chuckle.
“Talk to her like a father, prove to her why you deserve to have a relationship with your grandson.”
Vega laughed a typical villain laugh. “How about- if you try to get in my way I will send you and your family straight to hell?”
The lights flickered. “That’s not happening,” echoed a new voice. The shadows started to move, forming the silhouette of a male angel; Johnny, Azzy’s husband. “My son is staying with my sister and we will fight to protect his soul.”
“Protect him from his blood lineage?” Vega asked with a roar. “His true purpose!”
“We are more than the sum of our parts,” Johnny said in a calm tone.
“Fight me, angel! Let us see who’s the man worthy of deciding my grandson’s fate.”
Remy suddenly transformed back into his axolotl form. He was heading towards the window.
Luke knew if Remy got to the little boy first, Lucas would have every reason to trust him. Remy had cared for the child when Johnny was dying and now, as an axolotl, he lived as his guardian angel- a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Luke lunged at the lizard, grabbing it by the tail but as he did, the room went black. He was alone, with the girl from his near death experience standing before him.
“Go home,” she said in a whisper.
“What?”
The little girl became overlay-ed by a new image; a tall female angel with a golden arm. “Go home,” the woman repeated.
Luke blinked his eyes and he was back home in Portland, Oregon. This was the apartment he and Kelsey had picked out for their new life before the tragic events of the wedding. “Kelsey?”
Kelsey rolled in, in a wheelchair. Her legs were in braces and her face was still noticeably bruised but through it all, she smiled. “Hi, baby.”
Luke straddled her lap, careful of her injured legs. “Hey,” his voice was breaking with emotion. “How are you?”
“Better,” she said as she cupped his face. “I’m glad to be home- our home.”
The kiss was their first since the wedding. Luke almost expected her to be pulled from his arms again by some evil force. but no- she was his. “You look great.”
“For a month, I mean, I’m not paralyzed so with therapy I want to get back to being 100%.”
That answered one question; somehow he had time traveled one month into the future. (Or somehow lost one month of his life- however one wanted to look at the situation.) “So, where’s Shannon?”
“With that little boy.”
“Little boy?”
“He’s been a godsend. You like having him here, right?”
“Uh, yeah. I’m just going to go check on Shannon.” Luke walked to the bedroom that he had decorated for his toddler daughter. “Shannon, sweetie?”
The little girl was laughing. As Luke opened the door he could see why.
Shannon was with Azzy’s son, Lucas. and between them was a certain rainbow, winged axolotl.
Luke was frozen with fear. The creature looked at him with its chubby cheeks and little eyes. “Hi,” Luke said awkwardly.
Shannon giggled. “You’re silly, Daddy.”
“Yeah,” added Lucas. Azzy’s son had her blue eyes, dark hair and kind smile. He was small enough to look innocently adorable. “Rainbow can’t talk.”
“The lizard’s name is Rainbow?”
Shannon petted the creature’s head. “Rainbow is an ax-o-lot-l.”
Luke nodded and walked backward away from the room. “Kelsey?” He called to his wife int he kitchen. “I think I’ve been a little tired, a little stressed- so my mind is drawing a blank- remind me why do we have a little boy living with us?”
“As a favor to your friend.” Kelsey paused and bit her lip in deep thought. “What was her name?”
“Azzy?” Luke replied. Did Azzy do this- Send him home with her son? If so, why was ‘Rainbow/Remy’ here?
“No not Azzy- she was at a meeting or something like that. It was her assistant.”
“This assistant- did she have a golden arm?”
“Maybe, I mean I wasn’t really looking. We were getting discharged and given tickets for a flight back to Portland. And then she just mentioned how Azzy might be a little overwhelmed for the foreseeable future and we should take her little boy.”
“And the lizard?”
“Lizard? You mean that thing Lucas keeps talking about? I swear, that little boy has such a vivid imagination.”
“You can’t see it?” Luke asked out loud.
Kelsey only laughed. “You can see it?” She pulled a tray of chicken nuggets out of the oven. “Lucas! Shannon! Come eat dinner!”
