Chapter 68: The Return..."Deceptions in the Air"


Cover by Peter Poast Publications with Photo by Junior Cruz

Similar to what newspapers in the 19th Century did the will publish a chapter a day from the book Deceptions in the Air. This fictional book is a blend of reality and conspiracy with a mix of Biblical Prophecy. My hope is that you enjoy the story, while it puts a desire in your heart to seek Truth.


Bri’s heart began to pound. Gently, she removed herself from under Alex and got his body lying flat. She was able to tell that he was still breathing, but he was totally unconscious. Reaching into her pocket, she grabbed the cell phone and called Michelle.

As she was waiting for the doctor to answer, Alex slowly opened his eyes.

Michelle told Bri to check his temperature and give him something cold to drink, if he was able to swallow.

“Maybe when he got up to open the door for you, it was too much for him. He has lost a lot of blood and fluids. He is probably very dehydrated. I’ll bring an I.V. and a packet of fluids for him. Just get him to stay down,” Michelle instructed.

“How’s Jack?” Bri remembered to ask quickly before saying goodbye.

“He’s good as new,” the doctor answered.

As Bri closed the phone, she reached over to check Alex’s forehead.

“Oh Alex, you scared me.”

Alex just gave her a blank stare.

“You’re burning up with fever,” she told him as she quickly ran into the kitchen where she grabbed some ice and a cold compress along with more ibuprofen. With one hand, Bri held the cold compress onto is forehead, while putting the medicine in her other hand to help him take it.

“Thank you,” Alex was able to mutter out.

Bri weaseled her way back under Alex so she could hold onto and comfort him.

“Are you feeling any better?” Bri asked him.

“Yes,” Alex lied.

As Bri sat there holding Alex, she began to do what she didn’t want to do. She began drifting into the “what if’s” and the “what could have been’s.”

What would life be like now if they had fought harder in their younger years to stay together? Would things have been different, if they had told each other years ago how they really felt? Could she have stopped Alex from being involved in such an ordeal as the Blue Beam Project? Or, would both of them been sucked into this deceiving project because of their desire for peace on this earth?

“Never look back… think of the present… and hope for the future,” she softly whispered as she caressed Alex’s head.

“Bri, you really do love me, don’t you?” Alex said trying to smile.

“Yes, I do,” she tenderly smiled back.

“I’ve always loved you. The day I spotted you on the beach, I just knew you were my soul mate,” reaching up he took her hand and placed it on his lips.

“Try to sleep Alex. You need your rest,” she said bending down and placing a kiss on his forehead.

Alex closed his eyes.
