Brackett stepped farther into the tent and walked slowly around the old, dusty torpedo bomber. He ran his hand over the decals on the fuselage and looked up at the name stenciled below the cockpit. He turned back toward Charlie.
“This plane belonged to Flight 19 that disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle,” said Brackett. He turned to Malcolm Taylor. “There were other planes and ships that disappeared.”
“Some of them are among the chosen ones,” said Malcolm. “Some were taken elsewhere.”
“By who?” asked Brackett.
Brackett looked over at Charlie and back at Malcolm. “Watchers?”
“Yes, They brought the chosen ones here.”
“Where did these Watchers come from?”
“It is all explained in The Book,” said Taylor. “Come, I will show you.”
Brackett and Charlie followed Malcolm Taylor from the tent back to his shack. They maneuvered around the wooden furniture decorating the inside of the shack and followed Taylor to a desk against the far wall. Malcolm opened the top drawer of the desk and removed an old, worn book and handed it to Brackett.
“It’s a journal,” Brackett said to Charlie as he carefully opened the book to the first parched page.
