Celeste listened to Jack’s mumbling and talking in sleep while she drove the truck heading to Reno Nevada. What she heard was shocking to say the least. Her heart broke when she listened to him relive the day that tore his mind to pieces. At one point she almost wanted to stop the truck and wake him up. Instead, she kept going and visualized the war scene out while keeping her truck on the road. Her eyes flew open when she played the scene out of Jack decapitating his enemy. She quickly became alert in the early morning light when her truck went off the edge of the road hitting the rubble strips.
The loud noise and shaking of the truck gave tongue to his battle cry. Jack quickly woke up in a soldier formation withdrawing his blade ready to cut his enemy up. His wild eyes scared the shit out of Celeste. Wolf woke up quickly and began to growl at Jack. “JACK…JACK…wake the hell up dude!” Celeste barked out as she quickly pulled the truck off the road coming to a screeching halt. Jack went forward and hit is head on the dashboard. She yelled out again when she saw his eyes were awake but still had a wild look about him. “Jack, it’s Nujalik…wake up!”
Jack snapped awake and noticed he held his sharp blade. He looked at Celeste in a daze. “Jack give me your knife hombre…it’s me!” Wolf growled at him, Jack quickly raised his eyebrows when he looked in the back seat at the lupus. For several long moments Celeste didn’t say a word. She let him try to gather the situation on his own time.
“Who are you woman?” Jack softly spoke out. “What do you mean who am I?” she inquired. “Where is Nujalik? You are like her, but not really?” Celeste was getting confused. “Listen buck, I don’t know what you are talking about? I am your Nujalik!” Jack began to look deeply into her eyes not saying a word. Fear began to creep up into Celeste she slowly reached for her Bowie knife ready to use it if need be. When she saw Jack confirm that she was Celeste in his mind, her tension eased when he put his knife on his lap.
“Look in the mirror, Nujalik. You are many different people.” Jack softly said. She pulled down the visor an opened the mirror. Stunned and wordless, she looked at herself with amazement as minutes ticked by. “Well I be dipped in cow shit….DUDE, this is frigging awesome!” She giggled with glee at her new appearance while taking her hair out of her pony tail. Her hair was longer pass her breast now and was completely snow white. The only color in her hair was a large black streak of hair framing her widow’s peak line. Her almond shape eyes were green as green can be and she looked younger. “Is that you Nujalik?” Jack spoke out.
She touched her face and lips slowly. “I guess it is, Jack?”
