Juliana was the first to reach the restaurant. She asked for a table for three. She was taken to a table in the back, their table, one that she had had the foresight to call and reserve, even though the restaurant was only half full most days in the middle of the week, she had called ahead. She was a stickler for detail, she liked plans, and each move was thought out and must run in the proper sequence to make her day run smoothly. She did not like deviations from the plan, and she did not like the fly by the seat of your pants attitude of some folks who will remain nameless, and brought a smile to her face.
Seated she began to think over her past meetings in this very place, Walkers, a family restaurant with a down home feel. They had chosen this place because it was just about in the middle of the three of them, and they liked to catch up before they went to the house to get their assignment. Juliana was always the first to arrive, you could set your watch by her, always early. never late.
She heard Shara arrive without even looking out the window, her Harley was quiet but distinctive enough to recognize and it was a warm summer day and Juliana knew Shara would not be able to resist the pleasure. She smiled to herself as she thought how predictable they all were.
Mei-li would be arriving shortly in her convertible with the top up, the top never came down, not even on the most beautiful of days. Juliana wonder why Mei-li even bothered to buy a convertible in the first place.
Juliana had missed the girls, it had been almost two months since their last assignment, they were only called out by the most desperate of cases, and sometimes it was months and took only a day to fix and sometimes it was only a week and took a month to fix but all cases in the end turned out with them having that farewell meal here in Walkers. Relieved that it was over and not wanting to get that phone call again for a while.
Shara was walking up to the table, joking with the waitress and smiling that great big smile of hers that made one feel that all was right with the world. But Juliana knew what lay behind that smile, the smile that never quite reached the eyes if you looked close. But it was hard to get close enough to notice that, and the waitress walked off smiling a real smile and her day a little brighter. That was the power of Shara, she was able to brighten up any room just by being in it, one could feel the change in atmosphere where ever Shara happened to be.
Juliana leaped to her feet and gave Shara a big hug, and Shara gave her a real smile, one that reached her eyes, for she was happy to be back to work, well this work, the Lords work. Oh she worked hard enough at her job and it did give her pleasure but these assignments were her life, she looked forward to them very shortly after each assignment was done she was waiting for that call that would bring them all back together again. She knew none of them could do this work full time, it was dangerous, while there had been numerous injuries, none had been bad enough to slow them down or make them quit this work.
Carly had chosen each of the girls for different reasons, and only Carly knew what those reasons were.
Juliana could guess why she had been chosen, she was computer hacker by trade, if you could call it a trade, she was paid to hack her way into systems set up to stop hackers from entry. If she got in, she won and they lost, and the client knew their system was not safe and needed to be secured. The tricks of this trade had been handy dealing with Cults numerous times.
But she also knew that each of them was also chosen because of their athletic ability, for they were all avid sports fiends. Juliana liked track, she also liked a good game of tennis, and could hold her own with a rifle and hand gun.
Shara as they called her, was a mechanic by trade, and a good one, oh, she had her masters in Ancient Languages and often went off to some dig or other but mostly she liked to tinker as she called it with motors. She also had a preference for staying in good shape, she liked to kick box , and she did it whenever she felt the urge to blow up some motor that was not behaving in the fashion that it was meant to.
Of the three of them Juliana was the one to fear, for she was the one who did not have any qualms about shooting you in the foot to keep you from running away. Behind that smile that did not reach her eyes was an anger that came out when those who crossed her path were preying on the innocent and the weak. There was little pity in her and the wise gave her no reason to have to show her true nature. This lack of pity made her the best candidate for this kind of work. When dealing with the devil one can not pity his minions or his ways.
And Shara did not pity either, for she believed in the force of good and the force of evil and she had chosen her side long ago.
Like a ghost Mei-li appeared at the table.. This is a trick that she often applied to her work.. It was like she had no presence until she wished you to know she was there. It was kind of a joke between the three of them and she loved to show her skill at it and had just done so now. Mei-li often claimed that she was invisible, and the girls were starting to believe it, for she could appear out of nowhere and be standing next to you. Gave you an eerie feeling in the pit of your stomach.
She did not take her tracking courses and become this person, she took her courses because she was this way and wanted to enhance her skills. She was a member of Earth Skills, and had learned to track animals silently as her pictures proved. She had sold a few shots to magazines but that was not her life’s work, no that was her hobby. But the hiking and roughing it were also part of the experience, and part of the fun.
It kind of made Juliana laugh to think of this woman as an outdoors person, in her brimmed hat and Foster Grant shades. She often wore the same kind of outfit that Katherine Hepburn wore in the African Queen when she was out in the woods sneaking up on animals. Hardly an inch of flesh showing for the sun to touch or bee to sting. Mei-li said there was not an excuse to look frumpy just because you were hiding in the bushes.
Mei-li is as quiet and stealthy as a ghost. Her ghost like quality is complete. Silent but deadly to all those who are predators. Juliana and Shara call her Casper from time to time. Because Mei-li is really very friendly but still a GHOST!
Now seated at the table they began to speculate on just what it was that Carly had called them here for this time. Some innocent had gotten themselves up to their neck in alligator soup one would suppose. There would surely be wolves and there would be sheep.. That they were sure of, but where and when were the questions they needed answered, and they would have those answers shortly.
Each had brought what they would need for at least the next few days with them, this was standard procedure, the rest would be waiting for them where ever it was that they were going.
receive their assignments. Brimley is Carly's Personal Assistant acting as her intermediary with
the Angels. The Angels have never met or seen their employer, Carly, if that is her real name..)
"Hello Angels!! How are you all today??? And thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to come out to kick some cult butt!! As you know the devil walks among us as a hungry lion…seeking to destroy the innocent… well this time he is doing it in the form of another cult know as "the Moonies". They've taken one of my close friend's granddaughters. Your job Angels, is to find this young lady and return her safely back to her grandma! I emailed you all the details you need for the mission. Brimley, as always, will support you anyway he can. Ok Angels, kick some Moonie butt!!! And don’t forget your Bibles girls..... might come in handy!!
THANK YOU CARLY! GOD BLESS YOU!
THANK YOU CARLY! GOD BLESS YOU!
in front of them and personal chit chat was out of the way.......)
I think the first thing we must do is find Penny McCloud, and with that amount of money and people, the Moonie Cult has to have some kind of data base attached to that kind of organization. Since the Moonies immediately move you from whatever coast you are on to the other coast, if they even keep you in the country, I have my work cut out for me tonight. May have to call in the group, there are a couple of really good hackers out there if it takes too long to find what I need, but it may cost a few pennies.
Well you heard Carly, money is no object. But then in these cases when is money ever a problem? We have pretty regularly gone out to find one of the great unwashed and this young lady deserves a life, not being a prisoner of place and mind. And in Carly's defense we can not always be doing good works for free or we would soon be without the tools to do such work. And the rich as well as the poor need protection.
Don’t you worry some times Juliana that YOU are going to get hacked? And it will be YOUR files that are read? Or worse someone standing at YOUR door?
encryption system for me that even the National Security Agency does not have the "keys" to crack. Believe me those fellows are the elite of the Hacker Community. They follow Levy's code, to the letter. Kind of like Knights of old on white horses, but without the horses.
No I do not worry at all, a first generation hacker built my
I never have had a moments fear of being hacked, and if by some chance a hacker gets too far into my computer there is a nice virus there waiting to take down his whole network. But that is after I have been hooked to his network, using his router and checking out his personal information, good to know who your enemies are then you can figure who sent them to your door so to speak...
you're good at what you do, but still I worry.
Do not worry Mei. If they show up at my door I will already know they are there. I know when they enter one foot onto my property. I then can hear every footstep and watch every move they make. Just ask the Preston’s cat. If he could speak he would tell you that you can not even sneak into my rose garden in the middle of the night without being seen and removed. Mind you if you were not a cat you would not be met with a water blaster. But I have other things that they would have to deal with long before they reach my door.
waves? Snakes carrying beating sticks?
Yes Mei, you will find that Juliana is very well protected. Got some new toys did you Juliana? Lawn ornaments that explode, or shoot gas? Sprinklers emitting infrasonic
No infrasonic waves silly, they go right though bricks and steel. Hardly useful to me. And snakes have no hands to carry sticks. No, just your usual sonic weaponry, nothing special, just make sure you phone before you come over.
Oh I would not dream of passing though the gates of your place without being announced. I would fear that the garden gnomes may attack me.
That is a wise decision, garden gnomes can be nasty pieces of work. And those beady eyes see everything. So who wants to read all the reports? That also has to be done. Shara, you are our fastest reader, so I think this is right down your alley.
Of course you do, it's boring and time consuming. Who else would get to do it besides me? But OK, I will work on it tomorrow. We'll have to ask fast but I have other things to tie up before I begin this little adventure. Even though we have been up against the Moonies before, they will have shut the doorways we opened and plugged up any holes in their armor by now. Mei you were not with us when we came up against the Moonies, so you will have to catch up on this cult, so let me start at the beginning and you can do some research on your own later to fill in the blanks.
Well I do have an idea how they work, pretty much like any other cult I would guess, get folks to follow you, give you money and twist doctrine to meet your own needs? That pretty much covers it right?
Oh they are so much more than that, they are evil from start to finish. They are so big, which is one of the things that is going to help us, because of their size it is impossible to keep a watch on everyone, everywhere all the time.
Now back in the day they used Hells Angels to snatch folks off the streets, and then hand them over to the deprogrammers. And you would not believe how hard it is to deprogram one of them. For they are taught methods to keep from being deprogrammed. At one time parents were present but they found that it was harder with them there.
in broad daylight? That is what I hear........
Well that is true, but let us start at the beginning. Moon teaches that Adam and Eve were born as babies to ape like parents. That Gods plan for them was one of happiness, but Lucifer's jealousy got in the way. And that he had sex with a teenage Eve, who then seduced Adam. After he also managed to get Cain to kill Abel, his brother. This is the fallen history of Man.
Now once Cult leader Moon has you he uses his teachings to hold you, and one of those teachings is that in order for "God to work", Cain must submit to Abel and follow him unconditionally. Members are indoctrinated to accept this belief and practice it automatically. What it means is that you must always submit and obey your leader no matter what, even if it contradicts your conscience, the law, or whatever else. If you don't immediately "unite with Abel", then "Satan will invade!" Members are taught to distrust their own thoughts or feelings and are always on guard for "tests" or "invading evil spirits". So you must only trust in Moon and what he tells you.
Now here is the thing that really is a stunner, they call themselves "Christians". When by all theological accounts they are not. They do not believe that Jesus was God. They do not believe that Jesus was of virgin birth , and they claim that Zachariah was Jesus's real father . They do not believe in the Trinity- Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and they believe the Holy Spirit is feminine. The group does not believe that Jesus came to be crucified and that by being crucified, Jesus offers total redemption. It does not believe in Jesus being physically resurrected. The Moonies believe that Jesus lied to his disciples when he told them that he wasn't a spirit after his resurrection. The Moonies actually teach that Jesus failed in his mission.
The Moonies teach that Jesus came to be the pure Adam, who was to find and purify a woman and have sinless children. The Israelites should have all become his disciples, and as one united army they would have marched on Rome and taken over the world for God. But John the Baptist failed his mission and didn't submit himself to Jesus and become his number one disciple. Due to the failure of the Jewish people to recognize and follow the messiah, Jesus was forced to go the way of the cross- die and spiritually resurrect (not physically resurrect as Christians believe), and offer mankind only spiritual salvation and not total salvation. The Jewish people fell into disfavor because of their disobedience, and God moved his blessing to the Korean people- making them the New Israel. By the way, according to Moon, the Jews suffered the holocaust in order to pay indemnity for their sins of not following Jesus.
Despite the fact that the Bible talks about Jesus going to Heaven dozens of times, Moon teaches that Jesus was stuck at a lower realm in spirit world called Paradise. Moon teaches that since God is both masculine and feminine aspects, Jesus couldn't be in Heaven with God, until Moon married Jesus to a Korean woman in the church.
I can see the way your mouth is hanging open that you are shocked , this is new to you, but as cults go this is not so strange. They make it up as they go along, and power and money are the object of this whole big, giant lie. One man's lie, turned into millions of follows and not one following Jesus and yet all calling themselves Christians.
Well of course I've heard of the Moonies like most everyone else, but I did not know what big lies they told, it's not even as close as most of the other so called "Christian" Cults. The Moonies are about as whacked out as Arnold Murray's Shepherds Chapel! Another dangerous mind control racist Cult twisting the Bible to enslave minds and yet having the unmitigated gall to claim they are "Christians" too! All the while abusing and falsely hiding behind the Constitution's "freedom of religion" statutes to illegally victimize the innocent and persecute the Jews. But still I do not understand how anyone can fall for such obvious lies.
Brainwashing my dear, plain and simple. Well not plain and simple but evil and nasty I guess one could say. They even believe that Moon's deceased son, Heung Jin, now rules the spiritual realm above Jesus. Thus putting Moon above Jesus.
You are right there and I bet it would not surprise you to know that Moons name in Korean means shining Dragon and claims that Jesus came to him when he was 16 and asked him to fulfill his mission on earth because He had failed in his mission.
Now I know you are just making this up. Moon is actually called the Dragon. Oh that is rich. And they find followers gullible enough to swallow that manure? Amazing! I am more than ready to start kicking their butts!
Oh my yes and now with the fall of Russian communism, the Moonies have been actively recruiting there as well as throughout South America. Gaining millions of false Christians teaching a twisted doctrine of Christ.
We have plenty of job security with just this racist Cult alone! Everyone needs to wear their pointed toed boots for this job!
Oh not just large, my dear, but prominent also. Why not long ago Congressman Danny Davis, a Democrat from Illinois, carried the pillow bearing one of two ornate crowns that were placed on the heads of Mr. Moon and his wife Hak Ja Han Moon. Moon also owns the newspaper the Washington Times and the UPI wire service and he mingles with senior politicians, has parties on Capital Hill. The party being attended by many in our goverment, folks who could not keep prayer in our school, or the ten commandments on Capital hill, there they are partying with this false prophet.
Why you say? Because money talks, and on Capital Hill it talks loud and clear. Kind of freaked Mr Davis out when Moon declared himself the Messiah. Serves him right, one should know where one is standing, and who one is standing with. Moon made them look like fools.
And like Hitler he is really good at propaganda, and how better to be able to spread this propaganda, than own newspapers and your own news service.
It’s not like they are hidden from the world. Moon himself said the best way to become famous will be have articles written about yourself . And he bought the media organization that employs the reporters who have written such articles and publishes them around the world. They tell only what they want folks to know of course. Of course the real reporters left the Times shortly after it was purchased, being real reporters had a price tag, they would not write lies and foolishness. It would be impossible for me to tell you all the ways in which this so called religion is defrauding the innocent but in the end it all comes down to one thing MONEY, and even for Moon, money is better than power for with money you can buy power, that is how he got to have his crowning on Capital Hill.
shocking and quite frightening. Not exactly what I expected at all!!
Well Satan is very clever, quite crafty and full of tricks. I mean he manages to dump women back into the stone ages again with his false doctrine of salvation . According to Rev. Moon, the "Trinity" does not consist of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, but of man, woman, and God. Originally, Adam and Eve were supposed to form a "triad" together with God, but Eve was tempted by the snake, who was satan of course with whom she had intercourse. That caused was the spiritual fall, later she also had illicit intercourse with Adam, causing the physical fall.
Therefore, a physical as well as a spiritual salvation was called for, and that is why Jesus was born. However, according to Moon, Jesus' mission did not succeed because the disciples betrayed him. And Jesus was supposed to get married and later did to the Holy Spirit in heaven.
So it is all the fault of women, and Jesus, both lost salvation for man. Did you ever hear such a pile of malarkey?
Who would believe that kind of garbage?? Adam and Eve having sex
with Satan?? Christ was a failure? Jesus marrying the Holy Spirit??
Well I hate to say this but it gets even crazier than that, at the wedding cermoonies… they drink wine mixed with Moon's blood. Then they beat each other with sticks to beat out the devil. Then are shipped off to any part of the world that he chooses to send them.
Now if you want some real evil stuff that comes right from the false prophet's mouth let me tell you what he personally says in public. He believes that Christians are all adopted children, not true children of God. According to Moon: Jesus and the Satan are God's true sons. They are in Abel's position. The adopted children are in Cain's position. Adopted children still have the right to receive the inheritance if they take the right procedure, meaning join his church. Until their mission with the Christian church is over, they must quote the Bible and use it to explain the Divine Principle. After they receive the inheritance of the Christian church, they will be free to teach without the Bible. As Christians we prayed in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. But now we should pray in the name of the True Parents Moon being our Father and his wife being our Mother.
And yes Mei, your mouth is hanging open. You did not think such things could be said in the Christian world without a great outcry but this man has been kidnapping children off our streets for three decades and has yet to pay any price for it, he truly is the Teflon Prophet!
That is enough for me today, I am not sure I could hear any more of this, I am losing respect for the human race that allows such evil to walk among us. I was out rescuing an innocent from Neo Nazi brainwashing the last time you two ladies went after a Moonie but I am glad to be here this time. I think this talk has put me off my dinner, I feel like my stomach is in knots.
You will have lots of time to get over this deception, it is like many of the others, not straight forward like Nazis, evil marching in the street in jack boots and guns. Not this bunch more like tossing flowers and wearing smiley faces, hiding the truth behind innocent children selling flowers and talking about picnics. But in the end they are all the same, liars, false prophets, and conmen.
remove one small girl from their midst... at least that'll be something.
what we are supposed to do and Carly knows that better than anyone.
(Juliana's cell phone rings....)
Speaking of our boss.... what have we here?
A blocked number, must be Carly...............
Yes. it is nasty stuff Angels ..... and so remember this brain washing stuff is nothing to play with. I know people that have come out of cults but still can't get their way of thinking back to normal because of the brain washing that was used on them!! So you have to work fast Angels and I can not stress enough how important using your Bibles'll be to you on this mission. If enough people believe in the same things it could impact our world either for the better or for evil, depending on what it is they believe! The true believers who answer only to God not man are slowly becoming minorities in this world! We'll have to keep liberating those trapped in cults at all cost! God Bless!
(After a few days of preliminary research on their own, the girls
are summoned to Brimley's house for a final strategy session...)
Carly is on the speaker phone & she has some more
info for you on the disappearance of the young lady.
Go ahead Carly....
Hellomy Angels. I’ve called you all together because Julianna has tracked down the young lady in question! The young lady you are looking for disappeared from a mall downtown…. her name is Janaya Burke and she is 18 years old. She lives with her grandparents and they are very worried about her. Her grand mother says she's a very reliable young lady and would never take off like this. The Police have questioned a few people that were in the area the same time Janaya was and were told that she was last seen talking to someone from the Moonie cult but that is all they know, so it is our job to find out what has happened to her. I am sending one of you girls into the compound undercover. Each of you are more than capable of handling this job. Julianna you have an eye for detail and no mercy for those that do devils work! Very important...
Shara , you we all know that with your kick boxing you would have no trouble taking care of yourself if things got messy on the inside… and I do worry about you girls. Mei li you have excellent tracking skills and the uncanny ability to sneak up on people.
So you see girls, you all have excellent skills for this assignment… and my first choice would have been you Julianna because you would be less likely to be won over… you know how to stay focused when it comes to fighting Satan! But my dear… I need you on the outside, for you computer hacking skills….
And Mei li, I need you for your tracking skills among other things… so I sending in Shara to do to extraction. It will be easy to get the Moonies to pick you up, just sit on the bench in Northwood park that is where this group hangs out. Just sit and look dissatisfied with life, and they will offer you dinner... and companionship. It may take a day or two but do not give up, they will be along.
We will plant you Shara with a microchip in your hip. That’s the least likely place for them to find it and it will allow us to find you if and when they move you to a new location. We do not want to lose track of you, and we have to look at the fact that maybe they may move you before you get a chance to get our girl out of there and we do not want you to have to battle your way out, when you could wait for a chance to escape.
The Moonies are too large an organization now to be able keep track of everyone and there is only one way to do that and in this day and age it is on computer
That’s where you come in Julianna… you need to wipe her off the computer, like she doesn’t exist… if they can’t find her on their computer list then they can’t move her... But we have to work fast because it will only be a matter of time before they will figure things out. She will exist in the place she is in only and we hope to get her out before discovery.
The microchip will be programmed for air security. So it can’t be picked up and give away our cover if they put you on a plane.
I am also having special comfort guards installed on a pair of glasses for you to wear. These comfort guards are ear plugs so when the Moonies are trying to program you during sleep, you won’t be able to hear them.In the day time it will be to dangerous to do such a thing, to many would notice but during much of the time you will be just listening to taped lectures alone in a room, and it will be playing so loud you will not be able to sleep anyway. But what you must do is put your head down as if you are listening and grab as much sleep as you can because sleep deprivation is as dangerous as the rest of the brainwashing. This whole operation is going down in Brooklyn NY in the gated community of Burlington Heights. As you know these places have guard dogs, and locked gates.
We have already rented you an apartment across the road from where the extraction will take place. There were two college girls living there and they are now laying on a beach enjoying a nice vacation.
Ok girls, that is all for now. You will each find a dossier with all the information that we have gathered and your new equipment in your apartment.
Shara it is up to you to find Janaya once you are in there, and that will be the easy part.
The hard part is getting her out of there and deprogramming her! Remember, she will not want to come willingly!!
Study your scriptures girls, you will need them, put on the suit of Armour from God and go with his blessing!
The girls leave without speaking, each lost in their own thoughts, and wondering who long this mission would take. They had become used to putting their lives on hold to do the Lords work. They had all worked together before and separately on different missions. But they liked to work together as they each respected each other and they made a good team.
They had brought their bags with them as they knew that they would not be returning until this mission was over. They were very careful to keep their two lives apart. Made it hard to keep a man because one could not just disappear for weeks or months at a time and not explain oneself but that was part of the price they paid to do this work. They all knew the day would come when they could no longer live this life, but that day was in the future and for now they had all they needed.
They picked up their car, as all their own cars but those were left back with their other lives, as there would be no bleeding over into this life , nothing came with them that would lead back to where they had come from. Nothing. They always had a car sitting outside of Brimley's with the keys in it to start their mission. If other cars were needed they were there also. And there it sat.. a beat up old Ford, with a dent in the bumper and some of the hubcaps were missing, no cd player.. But then it was just the right thing for two girls working their way though college.
(Laughing out loud...)
Bet Carly is loving this. Last time we had the jag and now the junker. Isn’t that where that maniac tried to knock you on the head with a tire iron back in the junkyard Mei? Now that was a time, I did not think we would be walking out of that mess.
I guess the only new thing about this car is the plates. And if my memory serves me Shara you did not walk out of that mess, you drove that truck right though those gates, I would have to say it was more like flying out of that mess. Do you still have that junkyard dog? Man stealing a man's dog is pretty cold Shara.
That man did not deserve a dog and no, I never took him home and I knew I would not be taking him home when I took him. Brimley found a home for him, there can be no worlds colliding. But I know he is doing well for that was the promise Brimley made me.
You know the rules, nothing comes home with us, nothing means nothing. That is the hardest part of the mission sometimes. Sometimes you have to leave people behind. And you can not even tell them why. But that is the price to pay to be able to do the one thing we need to do, want to do, and if we do not do this who will, who can?
Some things men just can not do. I mean a man could do what we are doing. But it would be harder. He would be watched much closer and tested to see if the brainwashing had done its work.
Where as a disenfranchised young woman, who is more vulnerable than that, she is searching for something and they are going to claim to have it. And she will seem to have a moment of decision and then smile, and nod like her head is empty and she wants someone to fill it. And so it goes.
Mei laughed again and felt herself settle into this world, a world that had Shara in it, and she had missed that world. Maybe it was because she felt the power of the other two, she knew that they were strong, and willing to die to be able to serve in this army, and that is how she saw it, as an army.
Not three women, but an army millions strong. Too many Christians seemed to be losing ground in the battle against evil, for many are falling away, but it is not them one must look to but to the ones that stayed within the Word, for they were growing stronger, wiser and ready for battle. A warrior is one who is ready to die today, who knows the truth and is willing to die to keep the Word as it is, not as others might wish it to be. But there were other battles as well, and some of them had little to do with the keeping of the word, but with love and the protection of the innocent.
They had chosen Walkers as their meeting place again, the table that they took could not be overheard and there really was no place else but the car that they could talk. They walked into the restaurant each carrying their dossiers with them, they felt safe here, they did face the door, and they never come here from their own lives.
It was hard to think of them any other way than together when they were together but they spent months and months sometimes without ever seeing each other, no birthday wishes, no Christmas cards, no phone calls. So they had learned to enjoyed whatever time they had together.
said Julianna, opening her dossier...
"I am studying ancient history, so it says here, and I have to be in class Monday morning. I guess my books are at the apartment. Oh no, I work at a diner part time, the Windsor Place, sounds regal and I would be guessing it is anything but, guess my uniform is also at the apartment. Well I will be off for some nice green contacts. I think I shall and glasses over my contacts. "
They knew that in the bag in the back seat would be two wigs, both able to change their looks completely.
Carly left it up to them on how they would change their looks, but they never did that until they were far away from home, different city , different restaurant washroom. One would think that this would be the fun part and it was the first ten times or so, now it was just work, and not even pleasant work. But it could save their lives and keep those they loved safe, so it was worth doing. In this day and age there was no putting on a wig in the elevator, or switching dresses, not with all the cameras around these days. If they wanted to leave as themselves they always walked up a flight of stairs or two and then took the elevator down when they were leaving , sometimes their own look was the disguise, if they were being watched they could become someone else again, by being themselves.
It may have seemed confusing to anyone else but to the girls it was second nature. As was wearing mirrored sunglasses, they often used them to see who was behind them, and women have much more of an arsenal for change, purses, six inch spiked shoes, wigs, makeup, and much much more.
Julianna sort of laughed to herself.
What’s so funny?
Oh, I was just remembering the time I was dressed as that street walker and you two walked right by me and I called out to you , "Ladies, Ladies", and you just walked faster. I practically had to call your names to get you to stop.
Mei smiled, well you made such a down in the gutter offer, what did you expect? You didn't exactly just call ladies. You said "Is there anything here that you see that you like?" You scared the heck out of us. I thought sure you were going to chase us in those spiked heels. I can not see a movie now with a prostitute in it without thinking of you. You really looked the part.
Well I got offers to you know, many a man wanted to sample my wares. I remember this fellow with a wedding ring on he was so determined to follow though so I said to him "Have you ever had Aids?" He said "No!" I said "Oh Good, cause I never want to get that again!"
He could not leave fast enough. I still remember that look on his face, still makes me smile. Ah, what fun we have had. I wonder what this one will turn out to be, one we shall never forget I am guessing.
Shara was quiet and the other two knew that in this case she was taking most of the risk and the bulk of the responsibility. She would be in the wolfs den, she could be drugged and brainwashed and probably within a few weeks if she did not get Janaya out she would be moved to a more permanent placement.
There was no joking about the cat getting one's tongue, or questions, they knew that she was thinking it out. She would never see the inside of that apartment where the other two were staying and when they left this place they would be in separate cars and the only thing they would know of her was what they could find on the computer, unless they saw her come out the front gates. But there would be no chance meetings, no notes passed, until the plan was set and ready to go into motion. They all knew the score, out the door and see her no more. It was Jayana they would be watching.
But for now they had a few minutes to chat, and they caught up on each others lives, and loves and losses.
Oh boy, I am studying botany. I am a second year student, and I have an average average. How mediocre of me. I did study botany so I guess that is why that one was chosen and it will mean I do not have to do any actual work. Means I will be able to keep that electronic ear pointed at the gate.
The girls knew that after they left this place there would be no more talk of this mission, at least not in the apartment, for they knew that if they had electronic ears than others also had them and there was always the chance of someone listening to them, so all they would hear is girly talk. It would take at least a week to figure out if others were listening to them. Many were not as careful as they were and listening for days on end gets boring and as time goes by some get sloppy and as it was said long ago, loose lips sink ships, and the girls were counting on it, and much, much more.
They had finished their meal but they were in no rush to leave. They knew that they would really have so little time to spend in this fashion, just relaxing. But they also knew that a young woman was living a nightmare and unless they did something about it she could spend years in the clutches of a godless Cult, with her brain as stable as oatmeal. Some woke up years later, lost, broken and family gone.. Their world destroyed and the world they left behind was one that they felt had deceived them with lies and brainwashing. Some just never came out of it, and some just went missing.
That was not the worst, most of them were unaware of the tragedy that their families were suffering, mothers without their sons, daddies little girl no longer kissing his cheek, sibling married, had children and some passed on without even being able to get a message to these missing children. Disease killed some and there was no child by their bedside, no last minute good bye, no word on if their child was alive or dead.
At first it was not this way, at first parents thought if they sent the money, a nasty form of extortion, that it would keep a link to their child and at some point they could meet and talk sense into them, but they did not understand the situation and when they did understand and the money dried up so did the communication. Then the years passed by with no word of their child. The loss was devastating. No parent should have to suffer such a fate. Where were the laws to protect their children from these kidnappers? Most parents did not realize that someone could take your child off the street and hold them prisoner and brainwash them and then let them call home and extort money from their parents.
But there was a problem, by the time the parents got that phone call their child was already brainwashed to believe that they wanted to stay and that their parents were the enemy. So even if the police caught them, they could do nothing as they were no longer being held against their will. It was the Catch 22 cult. And this cult had lots of time to get it right and they were perfect at all parts from start to finish. No one could stand in their way, not government, not the police, not law makers, and certainly not parents.
Upon reaching their new residence the girls wondered how Shara was doing, they felt a loss that she was not with them. Usually they were in constant touch during one of these missions, but they understood that this was not possible this time.
They walked up the flight of steps to their new digs and Juliana opened the door. It was a bright and airy place, large windows and posters galore. There were two tiny bedrooms and Juliana just took the one closest to her, as it to her was just like camping out. When she looked down on the nightstand there was a picture of her and her supposed family, and she wondered how Brimley knew she would choose the sandy colored wig. It made her smile, for not many men would know her well enough to know she would choose the wig best suited for her skin color.
Got to love that Brimley. He was all man, but there was part of him that knew women, really knew them, not in a lecherous ugly way but in a interested knowledgeable way. But she guessed it was mostly because there were only two wigs to chose from and she looked closest to the girl who she was replacing, still it made her smile. They knew little about him, he seemed to always be right where they needed him to be, and have the exact thing they were going to ask for as if he could read their minds. In fact they checked out the possibility that they were being bugged... but that was not so.
Juliana laughed at the idea Brimley would know which bedroom she would chose, but then it was fifty fifty odds at getting it right. She hung up her clothes in the tiny closet, and noticed that this girl was the exact same size as her, her hair, complexion and height matched this girl closely and wearing the same clothes that this girl had been wearing all along completed the outfit so if you did not look too close you would not know that you were not looking at the same girl. Sometimes it worked out that way and some times it did not.
They were not trying to fool the landlord, or anyone who had personal contact with these young ladies just the folks who never saw them up close and personal. To the casual observer there had been no change in the tenants across the street from the at the gates of the Hellmouth as Juliana now thought of it, and looking at the iron bars and the lions guarding it, it seemed appropriate.
Since the young ladies who had so kindly taken an all expenses paid vacation had explained to their landlord that their friends would be staying in their apartment while they were gone, it did not seem strange that friends shared clothes. So it did not appear that these girls were trying to look like the happily drinking drinks with little umbrella girls, just seemed a coincidence not worth mentioning. And he did not.
He was a man who did not think of young women very much, he had a wife and three children and was the kind of man who saw young women as other peoples children and followed God's laws and treated them as he would like his little girls to be treated by men when they grew up. They paid a fair rent, had a good strong locks on the doors and he left them alone to live their lives. The girls knew he was there if they needed him, he said call anytime day or night if they got into any kind of trouble, but then he was talking to college girls not these agents of the Lords, who trouble was always just around the corner, and who had to often fight their way out of trouble, so he would be getting no calls from them.
