Laughs at Darkness appeared to Sally and said I can open a portal to Devil’s tower because the veil between worlds is thin here and there. I will be very drained however."
“Why am I just hearing you could do that?” asked Sally.
Laughs opened a portal. The posse led their horses through it and came out near a latrine. Seeing a Chinese man mid defecation they ran up and grabbed him covering his mouth.
“What is going on here?” asked Sally.
“We’re guarding the entrance.” said the man.
“Who do you work for?” asked Moira.
“I work for Kang. He punishes people who mess up by sending them here.” said the man.
“King sent us here to go in.” said Sally.
“Ok. You’ll have to talk to Joey and Minnie. They’re in charge.” said Sally.
The man led them to a camp surrounded by barbed wire near a gate in the side of the mesa. Sally strode into Joey’s tent as he was hastily putting on pants. Minnie threw a sheet over herself.
“King sent us to talk to the guy in charge in there.” said Sally.
“Uh ok.” said Joey.
The posse walked to the door with Joey walking after them.
“Did he say…?” asked Joey.
“Where’s the key?” asked Sally walking up to the door.
“Here.” said Joey unlocking the door.
“It’s barred from the other side.” said Joey.
James took a bar and put it between the gates and lifted the bar dropping it with a bang.
The posse went inside and walking down a passage way saw purple skinned natives with strange faces.
“What are you?” asked Sally pulling out the diamond.
The natives attacked and were gunned down by the posse.
The posse ran deeper into the mesa hearing running feet down side passages. Coming to a large cave with a large metal ring sitting up on it’s side on a metal base. around the room were crates of weapons. The view through the ring was of a blasted modern landscape. A large shaft rose up through the mesa above the gate. A ten foot tall cyborg came through the ring.
“What are you?” asked Sally.
“I am an officer of the US police force. I uphold the law.” said the cyborg.
“What law?” asked Sally.
The cyborg began to list them off.
Anouks, the purple aliens, ran up behind the posse and James gunned them down. Anouk began to our through the other tunnels. The cyborg opened fire and Bai punched his chest in crushing it. Moira opened fire on the Anouks. Soldiers prepared to rush through the gate and Bai touched a button on the base and the scene changed to a column of water rushing out dumping a Big Daddy TM. Bad pressed the button again and they saw an Island (Columbia) floating in the sky. A woman in a jumpsuit with a shaved head floated down from the ceiling. Moira felt a head ache and shot the woman out of the air. She fell with a crash and Bai punched her smashing her head to a bloody pulp. Sally pressed a button and a car on the freeway flew through the gate and crashed into the wall bursting into flames. Sally pressed the button again and the scene turned to fog.
The Anouks grabbed weapons out of the crates. The posse opened fire and Bai punched several of them to death. A man floated down the shaft and Moira shot him and he fell to the ground. Bad punched him to death. In the quiet of the aftermath James jumped into the fog.
“Where are you going?” asked Sally.
“I’ll be fine.” said James.
The posse fiddled with the gate until they found a volcano surrounded by people wearing feathers chanting at the lip.
“Hi.” said Sally.
Bad through her diamond into the volcano.
Moira poured rusting solution onto the gate and smashed something inside the gate.
They went up through the floors noting living quarters, an indoor garden, and then a room with chairs and a large flat glass screen. Sally touched the screen with her platypus. The screen lit up.
“Please give voice command.” said the computer.
The posse talked with the computer reviewing all it’s data. They found logs that told the story of how aliens called the Craighan were destroyed by the Anouks on another planet. Most of their souls ended up in the diamond the posse had been carrying. Some of the Craighan avoided the diamond and haunted the Anouks. A few possessed humans (in the future of this timeline) and found a portal that brought them back in time. Looking through the camera logs they saw old Stone AKA Pete come through and they saw that he was back outside burning down Kangs tents.
Until Next time Pardner…
