The Unfolding Text - Episode 104

“I have my tab.” Leone patted the metal band at his wrist. “I’ll be out of bounds.”

He picked up his rifle and stepped carefully up to the mouth of the bunker, making his way between blocks of concrete and steel prongs, twisted and bent. The air was cold at the top. He crossed over the ground toward the remains of the soldier, striding across the soft ash. A wind blew around him, swirling gray particles up in his face. He squinted and pushed on.

The claws retreated as he came close, some of them stiffening into immobility. He touched his tab.

The Ivan would have given something for that! Short hard radiation emitted from the tab neutralized the claws, put them out of commission.

Even the big robot with its two waving eyestalks retreated respectfully as he approached.

He bent down over the remains of the soldier. The gloved hand was closed tightly. There was something in it. Leone pried the fingers apart...

  1. A sealed container, aluminum. Still shiny.
  2. A tattered Bible.
  3. A weird blob of transparent green goo with a tiny black cube in the middle of it.
  4. An aerosol can.
