Chapter Fifty-Two

"Look, Lucy, you know, and I know, and you know that I know that you know, good grief, I'm even starting to think like you do," Kevin groans as he tried to explain to Lucy why he is going to attempt to rescue his psychopathic killer of a twin brother. "It's a twin thing."

"It's a crazy thing," Lucy insists. "Kevin, that nutcase tried to kill Felicia, he tried to kill you, he'd have tried to kill me, and we know that he killed a lot of other people we don't even know for reasons we can't even begin to understand. Hello, Doc!!! Faison has him in his evil clutches. What more can we ask??"

Turning tired eyes on Lucy, Kevin tries again to explain. "He's my brother. Wouldn't you try to save your brother?"

"I don't have a brother, which at the moment seems a blessing, and if I had one like yours, I don't think I'd try to save him at all!! Kevin, the man's a cold blooded killer!"

"I know that, and even if he wasn't my brother, I'd want to study him--as part of the twin study. This is perfect, Lucy!! One good twin--that's me, and one evil twin--that's Ryan, and the good one tries to save the bad one. I can write this up and publish it. You know the old saying, publish or perish."

"Yeah, well you'll be doing good if you don't perish first! Okay, I can see that this is going to be a long night, but do I care?? Just because I have a world class, world famous company to run, just because I'm trying to keep one evil man from taking over the world, and just because I love you with my whole heart, I'm going to do this. But, don't expect me to like it!!" Suddenly, she asks, "Do you think that we should call Luke in on this?? He does have some interesting connections."

"He is a good man to have around in a tight spot," Kevin admits. "San Antonio, for example." Hmmmmmmmmm

It's midnight, and Luke is just arriving at Spoon Island. Stealthily, he creeps across the dock, and just as he approaches the mansion, he hears a loud "QUACK!!"

"Siggy, you idiot," Luke mutters, as he picks up the fat white duck. "Out for your night time stroll?"

"That he is," Tom Hardy answers from the shadows.

"How the mighty have fallen." Luke comments. "You still pulling duck duty?"

"Odd you should put it like that," Tom says. "Yeah, this feathered fowl has to stay happy for a while longer, but if he does it on my bed one more time..."

"Understood. I need to talk with the others."

"They should be back any moment," Tom answers.

Just then, up the path come a dreadfully garbed couple, their outlandish outfits even more tasteless by moonlight. Luke laughs out loud, as he recognizes his friends. "Duck duty or the opera?"

"The ballet," Robert answers, pulling off the red wig and stuffing them in his pocket along with the horn-rimmed glasses.

"Even worse. So, what brings you here this time of night?"

"I've got some information," Luke says. "Faison has Ryan Chamberlain, Kevin's evil twin brother, and Kevin is just fool enough to try to rescue him."

"I see. Any idea of where he's being held?"

"Not yet, though Lucy says she wonders if he's in the catacombs. Something about stepping in squishy stuff." Hmmmmmmmmm

Sonny turns to Jason who is sitting at the kitchen table trying his best to stack bbs. Not real bright, Sonny admits, but you had to admire his perseverance. "Uh, kid, we got a new boss."


"Yeah. We're still good guys, and we can still wear masks, but we answer to the head of the WSB. Is that okay by you?"

"No problem," Jason answers. "Did we get a raise?"

"No, but we stay out of jail."

"Okay," Jason nods. "Can we still moonlight for Lucy?"

"I didn't ask, but I don't see why not."

"Robin told me that her parents used to work for the WSB and they got killed. Blown up on a boat."

"Sounds like fun."

"Yeah, I like boats."

Suddenly, Jason stares off, and we detect a glimmer of what may be a memory trying to surface. "Fast boats. Girls in bikinis. A brown haired girl....I loved her...." As suddenly, the memory is gone, and Jason shakes his head, returning to the task at hand. "Sonny," he finally asks. "I haven't said anything to anybody else, but I keep having these things in my head, like I should know about them, but they don't stay. They just flash and then they're gone."

Sonny, wiser than the doctors, simply says, "It's too soon to tell, kid. Maybe these are memories and maybe they're not. If things come back to you, that's good. If they don't, that's good, too. What ever is going to happen is going to happen, and sweating about it isn't going to change things one bit. Just hang loose and we'll see what happens." Hmmmmmm

Stay tuned!! Will Kevin and Lucy be able to reach Luke even if he's on Spoon Island with his friends in low places?? Is Siggy in danger from Tom who has had all the duck poop he can stand?? Is Jason's memory returning, and, if it does, what will his take on all this be?? Also, will he ever get any of the bbs stacked??? Hmmmmmmmmm
