The Story Of Lucille, Part VII

tsol_part_vii_002

In those fifteen minutes at least two lives hung out and forming a bondage. Once the song faded out, it was very apparent both Wicked Willie and
Lucille were ready for the next phase of this journey. “Lead me to where I’m destined to be”, said Lucille, as she broke the silence. Wicked Willie
didn’t say a word, most likely this was done on purpose. Lucille’s memory of the cave cravings is crystal clear. Her blue eyes are closed at this
very moment, but she’s as sharp as they come.”I had this feeling. Not sure how to describe it, but it was unsettling. I glanced to that one carving
which featured the word FEAR, but it was gone.” She continues “So I looked over my left shoulder. As I did, there is another cave carving with the
saying “Think For Yourself”.

Is there something going on here? There is a larger issue here. Peel back the onion a bit more and another question pops out. How did they (The Elapid
and Wicked Willie) know about her. They must have been watching her office, noting the comings and goings of each vehicle, each staffer. That requires
extreme patience and professionalism to pull off. What’s worse,what else were they watching if any. They knew where to find her, if needed be. Essentially,
they displayed enormous amount of patience in hopes of having Lucille cross their paths voluntarily. The fundamental question was how long would it take
for Lucille to arrive. Now that she has made it this far, the rest is now history in the making.

Wicked Willie takes a long stare as he eyeballs the red-haired Lucille. This sort of silent scrutiny is not something anyone experienced, and Willie can
tell by her body language that she’s well beyond her comfort level. Her shoulders hunch up and her eyes wander away from Wicked Willie’s for a brief
moment. Several seconds pass before Wicked Willie cracks his neck, exhales, and spoke “Look, The Elapid and I know what you are capable of doing in the
grand scheme of things, but this pales in comparison to the next chapter of your life. Once, I give you the rope, you will experience something
beyond your wildest imagination.” A yellowish color illuminated the entire inner cave, flashing repeatedly. This vibrant color exposes the
TV screens embedded into the inner cave walls, live-streaming people from various parts of the world.

Silent, Lucille held her stance very proudly and didn’t even flinched while hearing the words. Curiosity registers on her face. She obviously realizes
that Wicked Willie is dead serious. If she’s not on-board with this, there is no doubt she wouldn’t have even made it this far by now. Perhaps Wicked
Willie’s reputation has preceded him. All over these lands known as Yippee Ki-Ay, people have learned not to mess with Wicked Willie. He plays hardball.
A couple of minutes pass and Wicked Willie tosses Lucille a rope of 20 feet in length, which the end is secured tightly onto a large boulder with a radius
about 15 feet. He mutters to Lucille “Your next chapter in life” as the cave’s flooring shifts and creates a large opening, instantly Lucille grabs onto
the rope and descends roughly about 15 feet. A loud roaring frantic scream ensues as she drops into the next lower level of the most glorious cave. As
she landed squarely on her shoes, Lucille glances around a notices floating musical notes, gold plated instruments such as a cigar box guitar, a harmonica,
a saxophone, and a drum set. All of a sudden, a song begins and the words “Come on in this house, Mercy, Mercy” as Frank Bang & The Cook County Kings song rattles the entire majestic cave. Flashing yellow and red lights adding to the ambience…..TBC
