Ashley III, Chapters 5 & 6

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

This weeks chapters open with the Agency students arriving at Camp Darby. The other Agency students have questions for the twins who eventually reveal that they can become invisible.

For the next 16 days at Camp Darby, they have classes and field exercises before finishing on Friday 10 November. All of the Ranger students receive a pass that day, and the sisters decide to go home to see their parents and pick up some things.

Following a good meal and telling their family what they had been doing, the sisters return to Fort Benning, but feel a lot better having their own guns and ammunition with them.

On Saturday morning they leave for Camp Merrill near Dahlonega, GA to begin the Mountain Phase of Ranger Training. There is more food available for the first few days at Camp Merrill while they attend various classes.

A discordant note enters the story with gray suit man sending assassins after the sisters in the mountains. Following eight days of classes and practical exercises, the trainees start on the first FTX at Camp Merrill.

On Thursday 23 November, the Agency platoon with added Army personnel is tasked to attack an Aggressor camp. Chris and Carry take the recon mission as usual, and gray suit's men try to kill them again. Later the sisters lead the trainees to where they will spring their attack. The exercise is cancelled shortly after beginning to put out the forest fire that the pyrotechnics used have started. The students learn that it is Thanksgiving and they are treated to a large meal in the field.

I have finished the writing part of Ashley III, but the editing goes somewhat slowly.

Enjoy these chapters. More next week.

Keep Well,
