Tunnel of Love, Chapter 6

Like Chapter Three, this chapter is almost all action. The chapter title, "The Smell of Napalm," is from a line in the film "Apocalypse Now." Napalm is a nasty incendiary weapon, and I imagined that like the character in the movie who speaks the line, Peter Wombert would like the smell of it. The "napalm" that Peter drops in this chapter has its roots in an actual, almost cast-away line in TS:MI, which I saw as a seed that could bear evil fruit in a sequel.
