Something Better
Teaser #4 - At the History Center
By: Jim Bates

Karen checked the time. It was nearly midnight. Quinn and Matt had been on the run for nearly twelve hours. She was mad at her husband in one respect for taking Matt without telling her, but she was also proud of him for sticking up for Matt and doing what he thought was best for him. "I'll get some food and water and bring you some other supplies tomorrow. How's that sound?"

"Sounds good." Then he said, "Do you want to say hi to Matt?"

Karen's eyes welled up in tears of joy, "Yes! Of course, I do."

Matt came on the phone, "Hi, Mom. Dad and I are having an adventure."

Karen smiled. She could imagine Quinn telling Matt something like that, something to make them being fugitives seem a lot less serious than it was. But it was serious. They were wanted by the World Order Security Police - the WOSP. Quinn would certainly be imprisoned if he was caught, maybe even put to death, and she couldn't let that happen. She'd do whatever she could to keep her husband and son safe. Starting with bringing them much needed supplies tomorrow.
