Installment 7: Something That Didn’t Happen

Hurricane Betsy arrives.

“For now, this fearful night there is no stir or walking in the streets, and the complexion of the element in favor’s like the work we have in hand, most bloody, fiery, and most terrible.” Julius Caesar; Cassius Act 1, Scene 3.

Now the six must find a way to come to together to stand against “The Binders.”  In the storm, they do face “The Binders.”

“The Binders” are devious.  “The Binders” appear in an unexpected form of someone “The Six” all know. And standing with that someone is a monstrous Hells-Gator.

In the face of that horror, the strength of the-six wavers until they become “The Seven.” When the-six become “The Seven” they are strong, for a little while. Then Ro-bear gives up leadership and Delores’ voice speaks of and rings out with hope for the future.

Can “The Seven” stand in as the hope of humanity; will their bon lu kur bring the help they need for this battle?

“And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and the dragon and his angels fought back.” (Revelations 12:7)
