Chapter One Hundred and Thirty Three

Pastor Herb led the way up to the checkpoint where officers in charge looked at him in wonder. “We thought you meant a few reinforcements, not all this. This’ll take us a week to sort through and ID.”

Reggie shook his head again. “Nope, not this time. You have those cases of paperwork from last week. You’ll find each team member here will have an ID that’ll match those papers, you’ll only need to check ’em off. See, here comes some now.”
