Sorry for the delay. Life happens. I will try to get something up by tomorrow.

Thanks, Rick

Chapter 5
The Beach



Lyle did nothing but pedal as far and as fast as he could each day. Overcome by a compelling pull, he had no choice but to get to Biloxi, as fast as he could. He found he wasn't tired at the end of the day so he switched on his battery powered headlamp and pedaled all night. Hunger had mysteriously left him, he could feel no pain in his back or in his furiously pumping legs. All he could feel was an urgency to be in be in Biloxi as soon as he could. He made the turn of US 49 onto Highway 90, Beach Boulevard, as it was known to the locals. He knew instinctively, where he was supposed to be, and he headed for the spot. He jumped of the bicycle and ran down the long pier toward the first human he had seen in a long time. The figure was dressed in a simple wedding gown and as she turned to face him, he saw the face of his long dead wife. She reached out a hand to him and as Lyle touched her hand, she vanished.

“Hold it,” said the foreman of the crew that had been tasked with locating the body of the mine inspector, “I think I see something.”

“Holding, Boss,” came the answer for the equipment operator. “Is it him?”

The foreman knelt over the remains and brushed the dirt back from the dead man's face, “Its him,” he said with dejection, “Its Lyle.”

“Body of mine inspector found at cave in site.” the paper declared. “No survivors.”

The end

Good story! I had thought that the CME had affected the upper brain functions of humans causing their death. Good surprise ending.
