Another body climbed up the back of the squad, |
looming into view. A singed white crested helmet.
"Cap?" Johnny queried.
But it wasn't him. It was the silvered haired Carter. "Gage!"
Steven shouted at him. "We're on it. How are you and
"Whaa? uh, we're fine. What
the h*ll happened to them?"
"Same as you. Blown tires..Only it looks like Stoker

36's cap ordered. "I don't know details yet!"
"Just do it.. I'll let you know about them as soon as I do..!"
Carter said, jumping down to the

Johnny felt a weight impact the squad's roof. He
whirled around on his
knees to see 36's bucket man
lightly land the bucket on top of the squad's other roof

time to help a hysterical Alex's mom up onto
roof with an assisting hand from where she
was reaching up to him.
"Alex! Honey? Are you ok?"
Johnny could see the little girl's mother had a fresh cut
over one cheek that
was inexplicable, but it didn't
immediately register to Johnny's stunned mind. But he
answer her. "She's all right. The tarp protected us.."
He turned to the fireman with him. "Atkins,
Alex is breathing,
but her rate's a little fast. Only ventilate her if she tires.
I had to keep
her from pulling in any heat for a minute
and she's still recovering from that."
36's fireman knelt by the silent child and took
over Johnny's place on Alex's oxygen.

And where are the other firemen? I- I thought they were

two of them sat

he told her distractedly. "Just uh,

Do you remember where you are? What's your name?"
"Do you know what day
"Uh.hh" the mother sighed, holding her head. "I'm sorry.
What did you ask me?"
Right then, Alex began to stir and cough and Atkins
lifted away the 02 to see the child opening her
Mum? Are you there?
Alex's mother didn't seem to hear her.
Mum? the girl repeated,
growing scared when her
mother didn't reply back to her. Whats happening?
Why do my clothes stink?
Simultaneously, Engine 36, Squad 51 and Engine
51's radioes all started issuing Sam's voice and
followed a frantic report that Captain Carter was giving out to L.A.
On what it was, Johnny didn't know. None of what
was said had gotten through his shell shock.
Gage swallowed back his own thudding worry for his
crewmates as he and Atkins efficiently dealt with
new medical situations in both mother and daughter.
As Alex's and Andrea's pulse rates
began to calm with his
reassurances, Johnny's began to rise in stress and alarm.
::Are they ok
over there? Roy why aren't you HT hailing me?::
Gage's mind screamed out.
"I can see him." Alex said." No!! " |
The little girl screamed through her simple O2 mask.

"What's wrong honey? Y-you can see who?"
Gage didn't know what she was talking about.
The little girl's eyes had been bandaged shut for burns
they had found on her eyelids.
"The tall dark haired man in the white and the black hat." she
sudden fear filling her voice with a ring of truth that chilled them both
to the bone.
::Captain Stanley?:: Gage wondered. ::How can she know
what he looks like? She's been unconscious
this whole time.::
"No! Kelly, not there.. Somebody! Somebody! Get to him
fast. He doesn't want to die!" the little girl wailed.

Gage rose to his feet, moving
to stand directly
on top of the squad's cab. He eyed the brush until
he located where he heard
commotion from the chopper
pilot, Roy, Captain Carter and Chet. He made up an
excuse to issue
a radio transmission. "Squad 51 to HT

stretched by with no more frantic activity through L.A,

Johnny jumped when he
felt a tap on the shoulder.
"Ahhh!!" he said, startling. He spun about in place,
his air bottle that he had abandoned

and took another blood pressure
on a groggy Andrea,

side of the squad's top.
Her O2 mask was back in
place and her feet were raised up onto a resting
sideways air bottle..
"Hi there...uh.. " DeSoto asked
"Andrea.." Johnny prompted instantly.
Roy parroted. "How are you feeling?"
Andrea didn't open her eyes until Roy gently set
onto her arm. He repeated his question.
"Ummm, kinda funny..." she remarked.

low to treat and dress the spidery lightning burns
Roy checked the mother's IV and O2 flow. "Ok..
My partner tells me you are a little
recent details. Did you feel this funny way before,
or after we escaped the wildfire?"
Andrea's eyes wandered from Roy's face
and she fell to watching the D5W IV dripping
arm that Dr. Brackett had ordered.
"What fire?" she said. "Are there more people
hurt besides me?"
DeSoto's smile fell away and he drew out his
penlight to examine her eyes. For the time being,
he didn't answer Andrea's questions nor inform
her that Alex was nearby to spare the woman
stress. Her pupils were fairly equal,
only red and irritated from the smoke she had been
to. He felt along her neck for telltale signs
of stiffening or tenderness. She didn't react adversely
to his probing. Nor did Roy find anything but ash when
he checked out her head once more for
signs of injury.
"Still negative here." he said to Johnny.
"Yep.. So, what do you think?"
It was only a few seconds before Andrea faded
enough to want to close her eyes
again. Roy watched
her breathing rate. "Don't know yet. The BP's 88 systolic
and her resp rate
IS shallowing. Just like what you've got

about what else he could check for. Then he
had an idea. "Johnny, did you take a BP on her other

the child warmly into a
dry blanket. Johnny's
slight look of dismay said it all. "Oops." he
mouthed silently. Then out
loud he said. "I was
kinda distracted by all the excitement with the
engine, Roy." he said.
Atkins was still doing his part in keeping the little girl
awake and oriented by giving her his helmet
to feel while
she waited for her ambulance to arrive."I think we all were."
Roy turned to
get his baseline BP. He nodded as he got the
second reading. "It's different, Johnny. 110 over 84."
he slipped into a closer neural exam on Andrea that included
a babinski's check and a limb

seem able to grip his fingers with any great
strength on that
side nor push down with her left foot normally. His mind started

his head immediately dismissing that angle.. ::That

Roy checked the woman's

The third card he turned over was one outlining

for the ambulance ETA. "Rampart, L.A. reports its

saw the company that
was stopping for their crashed
engine call. It happened to be Stone's.

out of their rescue squad to
assist 51's. Gil gave a low whistle at the sorry condition

Captain Stone wandered over to them from his rig.|

whistle and unbelieving head shake.

Johnny stopped in his tracks when he saw Cap's
laying across the seat of the engine through its open
driver's door. His work gloves
were still there, folded
neatly on top of the transmission live radio.
Kelly noticed that too,
"That's weird. He didn't take
his gloves with him. Kinda odd, cause there's still
a lot of superheated

Stone was pacing along side Gage when they began to

there, he found a hand saw on the ground where

Ben cautiously inched forward to look where Johnny had
fallen and his face furrowed. "Looks like an old

be bigger than it appears because of all this old overgrowth."
They all dropped to their
stomachs and crawled forward
until they could peer down into its darkness around the
they found there. Two of the boards were
newly cracked and there was a steaming redness
across one of them. Ben reached out a hand to
touch some and he brought it to his nose. "It's blood."
"Cap?!!" Kelly called out urgently.
Johnny drew out the flashlight he had snatched along
his gear and aimed it down into the hole. He
could just hear the sounds of gurgling water far
and his light's feeble beam caught something
shiny hanging on a root. It was Cap's helmet. "I was
afraid of something like this." Gage said quietly

crumbling shaft. "Cap! Can you

Kelly's face was tight with tension and he
swallowed nervously as

Hank Stanley groaned as he awakened
to an eerie greenish darkness. He was upright,
hanging on a wall by the back of his collar on a
splinter of wood and his helmet was gone.
"Whaa?" he said out loud. "What?" he said again
opened his eyes to a feeble glow coming
from below him. There was a roaring
in his ears. ::Did
I hit my head?:: he wondered
and he took in a couple of deep breaths. ::Maybe not,
cause I don't
feel any pain. ::Then Hank realized what
the noise was. ::My legs. That's why they're cold.
dangling in this rushing water up to my thighs .
Am I in some kind of riverbed?:: Then he realized
wasn't the case. Peering about, he realized that he was in
an old mining chamber at a junction
of a vertical shaft
where it met the ceiling of another flooded horizontal
passage. Just ahead
of him, he could see an ominous
gurgling whirlpool rotating at the end of the dead end
about thirty feet downstream.
He tried to shift his head but a warning creak
nails on the shattered wood holding
his jacket, halted him. They dropped him a couple of inches
his precarious place. :"Ahh!." And Hank froze, trying
to still the motion of his legs dragging in
the fast flow
beneath him. ::Don't want to fall in. That water
sounds deep and I can't tell where
water's going for sure...::
He spent another minute or so flexing his limbs slowly
and Hank decided that he was fairly intact, all things considering.
Until he glanced down at his
right hand and realized that
it was red with actively streaming blood. ::Oh,..
I got an artery..::
he realized, licking his dry lips.::Gotta
s- stop that..:: Already, his head was full of fuzz and
a nauseating thirst was thickening his tongue. Moaning,
Cap reached into his pocket and found the
that he had shoved there from the little girl's mother earlier
as they loaded her
daughter up onto the squad for their
desperate escape through the fire. He rigged a half hitch and
looped it tight around his upper arm over his coat on his
bleeding side and did it again before
he tightened it with an
adjustable knot with his teeth and other hand. He pulled
until he could
feel the thudding pulse beating in his lacerated
arm, only quitting when he felt his fingers growing
and numb. Gasping, he let go of his tourniquet and
he drifted in a sea of dizziness.
A few minutes later, he looked down and saw that the
fast trickle of blood was now reduced to a slow
drops that fell into the rapid flow of water beneath
him. ::That did it.Ugh.. Hope it
doesn't come loose on
me. This plastic doesn't make very good rope.:: He
looked around and up
above him. Very far away, he
could see a patch of daylight over his head and he
hear eerie echoes of..::Those are
L.A. dispatchs! I'm hearing Sam over an HT!::
he shouted and immediately winced when that
effort shot pain through his circulation stopped arm.
"Agh...hh." he moaned and his consciousness began to drift
as nausea rose up to sicken him. Hank barely
stomach by reaching down and splashing some of
the water rushing by onto his face with
his good arm.
Then he began to regret his actions when a mild shivering
set in. ::I'm going
into shock. ..I....probably lost a
fair bit of my total volume here.:: he thought. Taking a
Hank grabbed a chrome polishing rag he had
taken with him to the front of the engine on his trip
seal the bet, from his other pocket. He held it in the water
swirling about him until it was
fully wet. Gasping and
shaking, he wrung it out into his mouth and swallowed the
rank liquid slowly.
::Tastes awful. But I gotta....gotta get
my fluid level up or I'll pass out..::
until his sharpening nausea stopped him. A couple
of times, Cap almost lost what he had taken in and
it was only
a sheer effort of will that saved him from vomitting it
all out again. Hank was rewarded
a minute later with a
clearer head and soon, the chamber he was trapped in
stopped spinning around
and around in his vision.
"CAP ?! ..CAp ?!......Cap ?!...........cap... ?!" came
echo from above. It was Chet's voice,
mingled with Johnny's.
But Cap's head began to sag as
his BP dropped
from his internal chilling and he couldn't respond.
He slipped into a half state,
eyes staring into the
noisy whirlpool filled with green underwater light
just ahead. He began
to drift and dream..
walked the line in front of his new
firemen cadets and stopped in front of one very very
gawky young French looking man, who towered
a head over him. He dipped his head to read the
name tag.. "Henry...Stanley.." he read myopically.
"Hank.. uh, Hank. S-sir.. Only my mother calls
me Henry. And
uh,...my pastor." Hank immediately bit his lip nervously
for talking out of turn
in the inspection line. He had heard
so much about McConike's reputation on being merciless to
probies assigned to his station who dared break protocol
on anything. He froze at attention when his
new captain gave
him a once over glance from his hours long polished shoes to
his starched white
dress hat. "Hmm... " the man regarded Hank
thoughtfully. Hank could just feel the other probies twitching
in sympathy for him as he fell under the gun.
Hank felt his upper lip start to bead with
McConike said gruffly. "Uniform's fair Mr. Stanley. You only
missed some polish on that
"Which button where?" Hank said looking down.
McConike immediately swept up his
index finger and caught
Hank by the nose, making him lift his head in a Three
Stooges move. He
began to laugh uproariously and so
did Hank's fellow newbies. The humor had just the opposite
on Hank, who's face flushed nine shades redder than
the engine he was standing in front of.
