Fred Casper had the best of hopes for this brand new system that his new weapons operated on. New Special Signal Directive was a first for humanity in that no other system in the world could detect or track it. There was one other scientist who knew about it Doctor Ginsley and he had died some five years before the current tragedy of what was thought to be cancer. He had been assigned to a facility near Roswell New Mexico and had stumbled upon this new revelation and since he and Casper had been friends he confided in Fred and upon his death Casper had been approached to continue his weapons project and had incorporated Ginsley’s findings regarding New Special Signal Directive in the development of these deadly weapons. As he turned the stain glass coloured butterfly weapon over in his hand Fred could think of only one CIA operative that knew about the system. This man was third in command at the agency and was ruthlessly evil. He was one that Fred dearly hoped had not escaped natures wrath. The back door slammed and Casper could hear frantic talk in the kitchen and his heart skipped a beat when he heard the word DRONE! All at once he knew that there was a remnant of the CIA alive and all he wanted to know was how many and where. Flipping open his main frame control and sliding the basement window open he stretched his palm out the window containing the butterfly weapon and off if went. Fred let it fly around the yard and house for a bit and could hear the little girl who had joined them with the Amish fellow exclaim its beauty as it flew about the yard. Fred could see everything from his screen as the fluttering object toke off towards the mountains and less than thirty seconds later had locked its sites on the Drone. This weapon was not as fast as a plane but it could move at over one hundred miles an hour and both find and track anything. In other words this drone could run but never hide. Fred was so taken with this pursuit that he did not hear Bill Langley coming down the basement stairs and he almost threw the console when he spoke
” Howdy stranger, what you been doing down here all this time”?
