We Have Each Other
Jack frowned at his monitor. "What the hell is that?"
"It looks like a beacon," Vikka said. "That's coming... how could they send something from that far away?"
"No idea," Jack said. "Can we decrypt?"
"Not without Mission." Her face fell, but she gritted her teeth and looked up at him. "But it sounds like it could be Morse code. If we can slow it down-"
"Of course. Let's go." Vikka held onto the straps of her belt, and Jack turned the plane toward home.
Sixty minutes later, they had decoded the message, and they sat on their makeshift bed, squeezing each other tightly, weeping into the otherwise silent stillness of their lakeside home. The decoded message lay on the bed beside them, like a symbol of their salvation.
