Disclaimer/Claimer: I do not own nor am I affiliated with Jericho or CBS or any of the other PTB in relation to the show (although if anybody has a Major Beck just kickin' around with nothing to do...send him my way!). No infringement is intended. I'm just taking the characters out to play, and will do my best to show them a very, VERY good time. ;)

A/N1: Words in red are Beck's thoughts as he's writing; not what was actually sent.

Jake -

It took a little while but I'm glad to hear you've finally made contact with Russell. I'm also glad that you and Hawkins had a meeting with him. He may not be a high-ranking soldier in Constantino's army – but he's still there and he can perhaps help us defuse the powder keg that's Constantino.


The fact that you had a meeting with Constantino himself was a surprise, atlhough I'm not sure why. You've always shown initiative and Hawkins has always had a talent for getting to the heart of the matter. What's not surprising was Constantino's refusal to put down his weapons and stand his army down, or to call off the bounty on Heather's head. What does surprise me is the fact you didn't shoot Constantino down like a rabid dog when you had the chance. You're learning restraint!


Why do I suspect there's more behind this hate for Heather than the simple fact she was once my liaison? Do you know what really happened in New Bern when Heather was there? Besides attacking the factory and surviving, what else is between them? Perhaps if we can discover what's really at the heart of this hatred there may be a way to simply defuse the situation – although I doubt it.


I'm in Jericho in three days; we can talk it through then. I also want to take the opportunity to talk to Heather. Given your close friendship with her, it may be better if you were talk to her about Constantino (although I'd prefer to be there).


And how is she holding up under the restrictions placed on her? Really? She doesn't tell me much in her letters about how she feels about all this (besides angry) and I haven't been home (I haven't seen her) for almost six weeks.


We'll come up with a solution when I'm in Jericho. I'll see you in three days.
