Table of Contents
PEOPLE ARE SCREAMING.
Sunday, last week of May, Derby City Fair, Louisville, Kentucky. Food and people everywhere. Rock bands. Tents. Roaring rides, rumbling roller coasters.
…People are screaming.
Not from rock bands or rides.
Women’s hands. Babies’ faces and children’s hands are suddenly…melting.
The Derby City Fair is under attack.
But from whom?
And how can the attack be isolated to babies’ faces and women and children’s hands?
Within minutes, hundreds of cell phones call 911. Hundreds more record the victims and post the videos on YouTube.
The system designed to work swiftly does so. 911 operators contact police, police call the FBI, the Feds call Homeland Security, and by the time Miles “Mayhem” Gundy pulls his late model Honda Accord onto 1-65 South, Homeland Security has Lou Kelly on the phone. Homeland patches the president into the call, along with several members of the Pentagon, who have assembled in the War Room at the White House.
“Where’s Darwin?” the president asks.
“We couldn’t find him,” a man says.
“Who’s Lou Kelly?”
“Associate Director, Sensory Resources.”
“Mr. Kelly,” the president says, “What’s happened to Darwin?”
“I have no idea, sir,” Lou says. “But I stand ready to help.”
“Good man. Mr. Kelly, you’re on the phone with Sherm Phillips, Secretary of Defense. Sherm, tell Mr. Kelly what you told me. We need to know what we’re up against.”
Sherm Phillips does, and Lou tells the president of the United States to hold while he calls Donovan Creed.
