Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself.
They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.
Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.


They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

https://peakd.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?

You scream. You scream as the fire strips away what’s human, louder as it gets into the animal of you.

I know I talked about this line in the actual chapter post, but DAMN, it still gives me chillbumps thinking about it. So raw and primal, hits that lizard-brain survival response spot just right!

Count me in! For SPS, I'll be using my @thinkr.exe account that I use only for splinterlands (spellbook purchase mix-up left me with two accounts, annoyingly.)

Barton wrenched himself out of it and resisted the urge to be sick. After it passed, he kept the images out, but let the sorrow of it wash over him.

I can't pinpoint what it is about this quote that captures me, but it captures the emotion well and leaves a perfect image in my mind.

The man did not react. He just stood with that same defeated posture from the library. Barton reached out for a lamp switch, pawing in the dark, every muscle taut and straining. His bladder screamed. He felt the lamp post

This is one of the most scary aspect of the story, I felt goosebumps all over my body.

Rudy kept on frowning, then nodded once and shuffled over to the area Gabby had been poking at. The old man leafed through the bound leather, pulled out papers, put them back, and repeated the process. It reminded Barton of the engineering student going the same motions, little maglite in her teeth. He glanced over at the spot where the shadows had made him see someone. Maybe it hadn't been shadows after all.

It must’ve worked, because he was dreaming of whirring clocks when a hand grasped his wrist and woke him.

He actually slept 😳

He shot up, expecting the shadow man to be there, finally ready to move and maybe drench them in chemicals, maybe flick a match, maybe watch them burn and howl.

Whoa, that was intense. @thaddeusprime

“They never made it,” he said. He looked at the thing that used to be Gabby. She was still beautiful, even now. “They weren’t on time. You weren’t… on time.”

He didn’t ask for what. He was fairly sure she didn’t know herself. Barton watched her go, power walking away with a purpose. She reached the street, flinched as a car rolled by, then crossed and walked away.

"He tried turning on the radio once, and she started to hyperventilate, so that was a no go. He tried talking to her, but only got occasional inaudible mumblings."

An abandoned rail line cut east-west through the area north of the campsites—a convenient border that marked the safe zone from the dangerous one. The stories of a phantom train had been around forever, likely spun up and exaggerated through countless retellings around fire pits, the kind low lit with coals and ringed by wide-eyed faces.>

This time I chose a long fragment:

Then there’s a funny smell. Sweet, smoky. And it’s suddenly too hot. You realize much too late that you’re not going to be making it to your destination after all, because the door won’t open and it hurts now, it’s so hot. You scream. You scream as the fire strips away what’s human, louder as it gets into the animal of you.

Barton thought he heard someone chuckle, but when he turned to look, the path behind was empty. But he had a feeling that was far from the case.

That's definitely a cliffhanger!

This is my favorite part at the moment.

The girl was in love with physics and science, and Barton still wondered how he had ever managed to convince a sparky, deadly-smart girl like her to even consider dating him. How his art history background and part time library job was appealing to this engineering whiz, he could only guess.
