“I think someone must have tampered with my GPS.”“Yeah – I did.”I looked up from the construction-truck yellow unit in my hands, and stared at my partner across the moss- and weed-filled clearing. His features were indistinct through my mosquito netting and the black haze of biting bugs in the air. I could still tell he was smirking.“AJ, what did you do?”“Tampered with your GPS.”I had already reset the device twice. In frustration, I chucked it into the moss pad at my feet. I then lowered my heavy backpack to the ground and walked closer to the other man. I was already slightly winded from our hike so far. My rage made my chest even tighter.“At the risk of our lives?”“Bill will find us.”I back-handed AJ with my left fist and followed with a right hammer-hand to his parietal. He went down to his knees. I took advantage of his stunned helplessness. In one deft maneuver, I unhooked my trowel from my belt and cracked him on the top of the head with the butt of the handle. AJ collapsed and I knelt beside him. “You don’t f*ck with your partner’s life out here.”With furious power I slashed his throat wide open with the sharpened edge of my trowel. “I don’t care if you want to protest the railroad, but you don’t divert your partner 6 K’s off course in the middle of Alaskan wilderness.”I plunged the pointed tip of the trowel into his chest.“I hope your heart’s still beating when the bears eat you.”My heart pounding, I gathered up my stuff, and started to backtrack our path. Once I was a couple kilometers from the body, I radioed Bill, our helicopter pilot. The reception wasn’t good out here, but eventually I made contact.“Bill, we got way off course and separated. I think I can hear you south of me. Can you fly north and I’ll tell you when you get close and we can try to hone in. I’ve got a mirror.”“What happened? I thought you guys had a GPS?”I pulled out my mirror and started trying to flash it, but there was a lot of cover, and I didn’t think my chances of signaling through the canopy were very good. I heard the helicopter definitely turn towards me. Sound carried well in the wilderness.“AJ tampered with my GPS.”“Out here? Mind if I don’t go searching for him?”I grunted with satisfaction. Even Bill knew the rules.
"I think someone must have tampered with my GPS." I said as I tried to explain the daily drive past her house. She smiled slyly. "Not someone...it was me. I "tampered" with your GPS.""I don't understand" I puzzled."You know how you always say that all roads lead to me?" she said embarrassingly."Uh-huh" I mumbled."Well, I reprogrammed your GPS to eliminate any doubt." she confessed.I turned the unit off. I didn't need any further direction for what was to happen next.
Nevets, I guess you're making up for the lack of gore yesterday! LOL I love it.Walt, ever the Romantic. So sweet.
Yes Deb, I'm still terribly flawed! :( LOL
"Hey, watch out." Shelly pointed. I slammed on my brakes to avoid hitting the family who tried to cross the street in front of us. It was the third time this morning I almost hit someone, or something."Do you know where the heck you're going?" Shelly reprimanded from the passenger seat.“I think someone must have tampered with my GPS.” I tried to joke.Shelly looked at me, still annoyed. "Yeah, apparently you keep driving your head up your ass."
