Double Halos

Excerpt from Daniel Everhart and the Skylands of Caterra: Guarinot

Daniel speaking—

“I don’t want to do any more sensors,” I whisper to Elaina just before I climb into the fold-up seat of the Van Gogh. “I’ve got a feeling we shouldn’t put them on.”

Elaina nods.

Harrison climbs in the driver’s side. “Okay guys, lots to do today. This could be the breakthrough we’ve been hoping far.” He starts up the motor and turns out of the parking lot.

“When you say we, do you mean Mr. Tantalus as well?” I ask.

“He’s our sponsor.” Harrison picks up a small black box from the center console. “These are his devices.”

“What do they do, exactly?” I ask.

“Hopefully, they’ll track your progress on Caterra.”

“I don’t think that will be allowed,” I say.

“Why would you think that?” Harrison asks.

“I’ve already been there.” My eyes meet Elaina’s, and she gives me a small nod. “I stood before the council of Caterra yesterday.”

“You did what!” Harrison slams on the breaks, causing all three of us to jerk forward in our seatbelts.
