The story opens with Calum Windthorpe entering into the room. He greets the President with
Sir it’s almost time, the Bombers are approaching there drops zones.
The President responds, very well.
Calum asks, sir are you all right?
The President says, I’m not sure, how I am supposed to feel at time like this.
Calum: I see
The president: I’ve dreaded this day ever scenes’ that dammed meeting. I’ve been over it a thousand times in my mind. I know it must be done. I only wish it wasn’t me that has to do it’
Calum: I wish I could say I understood what you’re going through.
President: Just my misfortune to be the leader at this time in history.
Calum: Yes most unfortunate Sir.
President: Calum you’ve been with me along time, have I ever told you the story of The Marlin Chronicles?
Calum: No Sir you’ve not, is that the one about King Arthur and the Knights and the Holy Grail.
President: Yes the Holy Grail
President: You know the story is true for the most part.
President: some Archeologist found the old scrolls in the tomb of a enchant King
And when they where desifard, they were found to be lost records of the Dark Age king Arthur himself.
Calum: Amazing Sir.
President: The story begins long after the Great Wars ended. In a time of peace but even with peace sometime comes great trouble. All the people had returned to their villages and towns and began prosper once again. However, because of this more and more people came to the kingdom so that they too could partake in the great success that this peace had created. In doing so the land soon became over burdened with too many people not enough food or proper shelter. They soon began to resent those who had and started to take from them. This started the riots and fires soon there was little to be had by anyone. People began to starve in the streets and chaos ruled. So the great king sent out his best Knights to find a solution to this problem.
Calum: The search for the Holy Grail.
President: Correct. Time past, things only got worse. Finley a single Knight returned. Sir Galahad bearing only small burlap sack. He presented it to the King who looked inside and saw only one small rat.
The King stirred at the Knight thinking to himself “this man has lost his mind.” The man stammered please let me explain. The Knight told him that he had traveled across the great ocean to the land of the Far East .There he met with the emperor himself and explained the whole situation.
The Emperor shook his head in understanding and had this bag brought to him, inside the bag was a single rat.
He explained that his land had suffered a similar fate and assured the Knight that this would work.
Giving the man proper instructions, he sent him on his way.
Now Arthur shook with horror upon hearing what the rat was to be used for
How could he unleash such misery upon his on people? But the old King thought, his people were already suffering greatly and he finely agreed that it had to be.
Calum: Then what please go on.
President: The rest is history, the Black Death, killed more than of a third of the country’s population.
After that the land recovered, the ones left began to prosper once again.
Calum: My god, your saying that the Holy Grail was nothing more than a rat carrying the plague.
President: And here we are again. Only now we use modern technologies.
President: When I awoke this morning, I looked long into the mirror. I couldn’t recognize the man stirring back at me. When I took this job I didn’t promise to kill millions of people. I promised peace, prosperity a future for their children .Not this
Calum: And there will be for those who survive.
Calum: please Sir its almost time ……………. Mr. President ………………. The bombers await your order.
President: You know they say the monster he turned out on his people, returned and killed him.
But I don’t believe that, how can anyone live with such a burden on soul.
President: hand me the phone, this is the president………………………………………….
