Title: Oasis - Ch. 23/??
Author: [info]shirleyann66
Character: Major Edward Beck
Prompt: Table 8, #86 - Innocence
Fandom: Jericho
Rating: PG
Warnings : Spoilers for pretty much everything that's ever happened in the series may lie within.
Word count: 150
Summary:  
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.

A/N2:  Once again, everything I know about the military I've learned from MASH and movies.  I apologize for any errors in advance.  :)

Heather - 

I appreciate your concern about my meeting with Major Rodriguez. This is just another part of my job. This meeting – if it occurs – shouldn't be overly dangerous. At least, it never used to be. I'll be careful – the world and its rules have shifted. In many ways the time Before held a degree of innocence that has long since been lost. Regardless, all I can do is proceed with a strategy I hope will end this current battle as quickly as possible. I need to believe both sides will still honour a flag of truce.


 

Don't worry about me. If you feel the need to worry about anybody, worry about Jake and Hawkins. I understand they left today. I have the full weight of the Texan army behind me; they're on their own and we won't know the fate of their mission until they return (or not).

Beck

How very true, in most every war.
