Plan B: The Other Side
Katrina watched the computer screen as Eugene
downloaded the Radio Wave Study research onto a disk. As she
stood behind him, she thought of all that had happened in the
past few days. First her father had had the stroke, which had
been caused by a brain tumor. It had been growing much faster
than normal, and the doctors had said they couldn't operate on
it. Katrina had called her old friend Brandon Teller, and then
had tried to reach Eugene all morning. When Eugene was finally
able to come up to Chicago, he and Katrina decided to get
married right then. Since Brandon was a pastor, he had done the
ceremony. Three minutes later Daddy had died, after telling his
daughter how proud he was of her, and apologizing to Eugene for
"getting him the job at the college." Eugene and Katrina had
decided that Armitage must have been working with Andromeda, and
had somehow gotten Eugene the position of researching the effect
of converting brain waves to radio waves.
Katrina was so happy to have a husband who held
her through the tears and the fear, and now, as they prepared to
go into hiding. Which was why they were back in Odyssey,
stealing the RWS research from the Campbell County College so
they could mail the disk to Jason. Eugene and Katrina both knew
how risky, but important, this was. If the information fell into
the wrong hands, Novacom would use it to take over the world.
Katrina shivered as she thought of the danger they were in.
Eugene finished the download and stood up.
"Let's go," he said quietly, and his young wife
took his hand as they walked quickly out to where their bags
were waiting in Eugene's car.
Later, they watched out the airplane window as
they began to leave Odyssey, Novacom, and the college far on the
ground below. Katrina thought about what the future would bring.
She started to tremble as she imagined Andromeda tracking them
down, trying to find the research. They probably already were.
Tears came to her eyes as she tried to think of how long she and
Eugene would have to live in hiding. she thought about her
"Oh, Eugene," she whispered, her voice shaking.
"I'm... so... scared."
Eugene looked at her, his blue eyes filled with
fear and love.
"Me too," he admitted.
He put an arm around her and hugged her tightly.
"We'll just have to keep trusting in God."
Katrina felt safe in Eugene's arms, and she
started to calm as she thought about God holding them both in
His hands. He wouldn't let them fall.
"You're right," she murmured in answer to Eugene.
She leaned into him and closed her eyes.
"I love you.",
"I love you too, Katrina," Eugene said softly.,
Katrina let herself drift from all the problems they faced.
Eugene was there, and she would be there for him. And with God
showing them the way, they would be all right.
