Valis silently ponders to himself, “What is the matter with this woman? Is she going crazy on me?” He views Celeste try to filter her thoughts in her mind, till her eyes almost bugged out of her head with realization of her situation. “What did I do? Does she not trust me? Or was it my frisk job that scared her off?” Valis questions himself. His earlier blunder comes back to the UN officer. He had trouble keeping his attention on his duties for two days when he addresses his unit. It didn’t help much when he was receiving vivid vision’s of his hands exploring the lusty’s American’s body. His undoing was when he called one of his Spanish men, Hi-a-lee. He knew he was in trouble the minute the words left his mouth. The man gawks at his captain dumbfounded and said, “Sir, my name is Hilario, not Hi-a-lee?”
“Damn it, man, I know that!” Valis barks at the young man in anger. Hilario is confuse and questions himself, “What is the matter with him? Why did he call me a girl’s name?” Hilario overhears the men chuckle under they’re breath. He has not heard about the American Indian women yet. However, Valis’s crew overheard the conversation between Celeste and their captain on the auto’s radio. Valis, didn’t realize that he left his radio on when he called into headquarters to alert them of the possible danger with the school bus.
Hilario glances at his comrades and then back at his captain. He overhears someone say, “Perhaps, the captain needs to check you for weapons.” Valis heard the man’s comment and immediately springs into action, “You got a problem, boy?” Valis barks out in a dangerous tone. “No, sir, sorry Captaine!” The rest of the men kept their mouth close not wanting to rock the boat. Valis walks over to the window and goes into an embarrassed trance thinking about his mistake. This is the first time Valis’s men have ever witness a weakness from the Lone Wolf. Valis comes to the conclusion his men found out about the American girl. How did they find out? He tries to ponder on what gave him away, but couldn’t find one. He is wasting time when one of his men dares to help his captain out, “Sir, my I speak, sir?” Valis gave the man a threatening glare. The man instantly regrets speaking up.
The young Spanish man named Marcos is nervous. The room is secretive enough to hear a pin drop on the floor. Sweat beads form upon his brow, he steps forward and speaks, “Sir, next time sir shut the radio off in your car!” Valis’s eyes flew open wide! For a few moments everyone of his men held their tongues as they view their captain’s face. Valis recovers quickly and smiles at his men. If he gave them any warning of how stupid he felt by being caught with his pants down, that would be the end of his “Lone Wolf” statue. The young man relaxes after seeing Valis smile, and decides to step back into line. It is very quiet in the room when Valis announces out, “Okay, men I need to do something important your all dismiss.” The men didn’t hesitate they left the room with smiles on their faces. Valis waits for his men to leave him alone. He comes to the conclusion he will visit the wild one. He turns around on his heels stating to himself with a smile on his lips, “No matter what happens…I will take control of her!” Valis blinks out of his private thoughts when Celeste bores her orbs into his soul. He realizes at that moment staring into the mysterious woman’s eyes, the American woman was not going down without one hell of a cat fight.
