Magic Ink V, Chapters 13 & 14

The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.

This weeks chapters open dinner and a strong storm. The next morning the General insists that they check on departures before breakfast. They learn that two keelboats are leaving that morning and one has room for them.

The keelboat is loaded that morning with the help of a little Magic. They sail until 7:00 that evening before making camp. The following day they set out early and sail again until 7:00 that evening. On the third day they arrive at the Capital around 10:00 in the morning.

They are admitted to see General Greene after taking care of the horses and getting rooms. General Greene doesn't believe in Magic. While Gerald is sent to Fort Henry to bring the others to Fort Jefferson, Mark transfers the Generals to last nights camp site.

While at the camp site, they are challenged by a security patrol and Mark uses the situation for a demonstration. When they return to the General's office, Seamus and the remaining O'Connells are there waiting for them. The O'Connells all go to lunch while General Greene reads the report that General Clark brought with him.

Returning from lunch, they find General Greene having trouble breathing. Spells are used to cure him, and the General needs time to digest all that he has learned. They are told to return at 10:00 the next morning.

General Nathanael Greene is another historical character that appears in the story. He lives longer and has a better life in the Third Reality than he did in ours, just as General Clark has.

Enjoy these chapters. More next week.

Keep Well,
