THIS THIRD WORLD WAR?...
They had an iddylic life on the island.As Melissa Charleroi
has foresseen the jaguar was indeed showing up before them every time they did
fishing on the beach surrounded by the cliffs.The first days the ritual was
always the same.First the jaguar appeared before them on the top cliff and then
jumped from the upper cliffs to the lower ones and in the end landed on the sand
and waited patiently for his portions of fish,which Melissa Charleroi threw to
him.When the jaguar filled his demanding stomach with enough fish,he sprang away
from them up the cliffs,with one last fish in his mouth for his family.Every
time he reappeared on the beach,he behaved more and more friendly,especially to
Melissa Charleroi and one had an impression it was rather a supercat,more
submissive than dangerous.Nevertheless,they tried to be careful and held a
distance from the wild animal.One could never really know for sure what was
going on in the mind of the beast,however submissive and friendly it might have
been.Anyway,the jaguar also kept distance from them and never advanced more than
ten meters.They got so much used to "their" wild cat that they changed
the name of the beach from the "Cliffy beach" to the "Tommy’s
This cohabitation with the wild animal lasted already for two weeks.It was
certainly a wonder.The biggest wonder,however,was on the way.One day,in which
the rays of the Sun seemed to burn everything they could reach,Tommy reappeared
before them in his full glory as the head of his family: there,on the upperst
cliff not only he was standing there but also his female partner and two little
jaguars which could not be older than four to six months.They all looked no less
impressive than Tommy.The female did not react over-propitiously when she saw
three human intruders in the kingdom of her.She must have surely thought of
herself as the queen of the island.She sounded like a trumpet for a moment which
was in between a roar and a growl.It was surely a warning.However,when she got a
look of Tommy,a disapproving one,she instantly silenced herself.Her Tommy was
the king,the ruler of the jungle and the head of the family! The effect was such
she just lied on the cliff and pretended not to see those strange human
beings,which looked real appettitic to her.She would prefer to eat them all
without guessing.But tommy was the king,the ruler! She might have not understand
Tommy but she had to obey him.Believe it or not,there were rules in their animal
Tommy jumped to the lower cliffs and then onto the sandy beach.The ritual was
once again reapeated.Also this time,it was Melissa Charleroi who threw the fish
to Tommy.Strangely,they always kept the distance.Approximately ten meters.A new
wonder,however,became a reality:the two small baby jaguars managed to come down
onto the sandy beach.In what way did they do it,it was difficult to guess.It was
strange their mother let them go.She just lied on the top cliff and still
pretended to see nothing.The small jaguars ran directly to Melissa Charleroi and
wanted nothing but to play with her.A confusion appeared on Tadek Vangard's and
Steven Mac Dantosch's faces.They felt a bit alarmed.How Tommy can react to the
new development? Melissa Charleroi hesitated at first.Then she took the risk and
began to stroke the baby jaguars.She unnoticed that Tommy also approached
her.When she brought her head up she faced the adult beast just at the length of
an human arm.She noticed Steven Mac Dantosch and Tadek Vangard stood in their
places unable to move like if they were lifeless.There was another surprise
yet.Before she managed to react in whatever way,the big,reddisch tongue of Tommy
licked her face and then her arms.She just stood with a mixture of unbeliveness
on her face and did not move at all.Tommy still licked her,expressing this way
his friendship while the much smaller baby jaguars just jumped to her,demanding
this way that she turns her attention to them.She managed to stroke Tommy and
got the animal’s reward:yet another unespected lick with his big tongue on her
cheek.The friendship was once again stamped.This time definitely.Female jaguar
in the meantime still pretended to notice nothing.She just lied on the top cliff
and perhaps wondered what wrong was with the nature when such unbelievable
things as this happened.Still,Tommy was the king and she only a queen.There was
a problem when the jaguar family had to return to the jungle.The baby jaguars
had to be carried by their father to the top cliff one by one.Soon
afterwards,they disseapeared in the jungle.
The three friends returned to their villa with one only fish.Despite this they
felt very happy and the evening passed on with their avid discussions about
Tommy and his family,and,in the end,about the world of nature which found itself
in a danger because of some worldwide oil magnats,who for their monstrous
appetites of having mountains of money,brought the planet to a final,apocalyptic
-“One day the Americans will get the president who himself made a fortune on
oil,in a disregard of the health of this planet.”- Melissa Charleroi ended
their party with a sour reflexion,sounding in a Cassandra like way.Steven Mac
Dantosch and Tadek Vangard exchanged their glances between themselves.Somehow
they knew what was going on in Melissa’s mind.The never ending fear of the
night…Of the nightmares which could invade her mind with uppermost horrors…
She looked at them attentively.
-“You think I said this because of the fear of the forthcoming night?…”-
She asked and they had impression she could read their minds.
-“Well,there is still some fear left,but what I said is something
else…”-She continued before they managed to say anything.-“I really
think,there is something strange going on in this world.People are like
madmen,running for money and fortunes without regard and consideration for the
nature as a whole.They don't care for the environment.This planet can really
suffocate one day.There are no real initiatives on the European and American
agendas of their prospective governments.The first world should give an example.
In fact they give something opposite what I would call:'Rape of the planet'.”
Steven Mac Dantosch and Tadek Vangard did not answer.They shared the views of
Melissa Charleroi,but what could they do? Had they any chance to change the ways
the world was turning over and over like a maddening carusele? They have gone to
their beds feeling sour.
In the morning,Steven Mac Dantosch was up first as usually.Every morning he
exercised his martial arts in the courtyard of the villa.
Melissa Charleroi prepared a breakfast and Tadek Vangard assisted her.Steven Mac
Dantosch should already be back in the dining room.Melissa Charleroi walked to
the window to see if Steven is already coming back.She looked out via the
window.She became white faced.And she trembled.
-“Tadek,come here.Look…”- She whispered.It was for Tadek Vangard enough to
look at her to know something was terribly wrong.He ran to the window.What he
saw seemed to have been just hellish: Steven Mac Dantosch was attacked by six
masters of the martial arts.Tadek Vangard had now a dilemma.He never killed so
far and he swore he would never kill but absolutely nothing bad could happen to
his best friend in the first place.
-“Melissa,I think I have to get a gun and help Steven.You stay here.”- He
said.He felt determined.They turned away from the window and saw four other
guys,looking American,before them.
-“Who are you?! Leave us in peace! Do not harm my friend! “- Tadek Vangard
roared to them.
-“We are Americans…You give us the strategy Beehive and we return your
friend alive to you…”- Strangely,one of the guys answered straightforward.
-“Strategy Beehive?!… Shit,I do not have it! Perhaps you can rent it to me
for a while so I can have a lecture…Then I can tell you anything about that
your damned strategy…”
-“Stop joking!”- Another guy raoared at him.
-“The Burman,Khon Hun Sat,told you to seek us here in Bangladesh,did
he?…Only he knew we escaped to Bangladesh.”- Tadek Vangard asked
-“You are right.He told us.Give the strategy to us and we will leave you in
peace.”- He heard the answer.
-“For Heaven’s sake,how can I give you that damned strategy,when I do not
have it?! Someone cheated on me…Someone told you a lie…A horrendal
lie!…Someone told you that lie for some reason and I do not have a smallest
idea for what reason…Do you understand?…I reapeat:I don't have any
strategy.I am not involved in any mafia dealings.And I am certainly not
whatsoever spy…Is this enough to you?…”
-“No,this is not enough to us.You lie…You have to give the strategy to us
Tadek Vangard knew there was no way to convince those fanatics or whoever they
were.It was difficult to him to believe this might be people employed be a
legitimate US government branch.They were escorted outside the villa.Steven Mac
Dantosch still fought bravely with the attackers who were quite good in martial
arts.Unquestionably,Steven Mac Dantosch was the best one of them.He was able to
change styles of fight even within splits of seconds and constantly changed his
technics,leaving his enemies undecided and therefore vulnerable to his powerful
blows.He often employed top gymnastics and especially saldos mixed with the
technics of juiitsu and taekwendo,and also with his own technics,which he called
ninjo-kinjo,a sort of the best of fight methods out of the ingredients of the
fighting styles of such animals as eagles,snakes and tigers.He was one in those
three.His blows were so sudden and so powerful,especially with his legs which he
thrusted off himself centrifugally that there was just a matter of minutes and
only he,Steven Mac Dantosch could emerge as the winner.
Suddenly something unbelievable happened: shots were heard and all the American
fighters were dead instantly.The blood out of their bodies was now sinking into
the ground.Also the guys who escorted Tadek Vangard and Melissa Charleroi were
Steven Mac Dantosch looked around with an incredulous curiosity.He spotted them
at once as the mafia of Harry Gullivers…The infamous “Hell Angels”…It
was enough to see the guy he already once fought with on the outskirts of
Georgetown in Malaysia.What a pity he let him go away then.The gangsters
situated themselves round him,with their guns turned on him.
-“We have you in the end!”- One of the mafia guys said and his voice sounded
exceptionally unpleasant.-“Our boss,Harry Gullivers,will be most happy.He will
fly personally here within hours to execute you.We have,however,permission to
kill your friends.We haven't done it so far because we want you to watch them
He began to laugh like if he were really a demon of evil rather than a being in
a human body.His other companions assisted him with a ripple of laughter.
-“Now.”- Steven Mac Dantosch perceived to himself with absolute
decisiveness.He did an astonishing saldo and found himself behind a back of one
of the mafia guys.He reached his gun and nearly at the same time shots were
fired and all those who just a moment ago issued a ripple of laughter fell
dead.He ran towards Melissa Charleroi and Tadek Vangard,who stood in one place
and watched everything desbelivingly.Before he could reach to them a shot was
fired.He stopped half the way and turned his head in the direction from which
they heard the shot.There was a group of army comandoes.They were…Soviet
comandoes.There were ingraved Soviet red stars on their military
combinezons.They were approaching fast the three of their victims.One of them
spoke something to his GSM alike handphone.There appeared Soviet army
helicopters above the courtyard,as if out of nowhere.There was thrown a rope
ladder out of one of the army helicopters.
-“Get on the ladder up to the helicopter!”- One of the Soviet comandoes
commanded them rudely.They had no choice as to follow the order.The Soviet
comandoes were professional killers and after seeing what Steven Mac Dantosch
did with the mafia guys,they would not let him reapeat the same.They had no any
other choice but to walk up the ladder.And just then,when they were getting to
the ladder,the sky seemed to open and five American fighting jets flew over the
courtyard,with laser shots out of them which changed the helicopters instantly
into balls of fire which exploded in the air even into bigger spectators of
fire.Steven Mac Dantosch,Melissa Charleroi and Tadek Vangard jumped of the
ladder enough fast and ran towards the jungle seeing there the only chance for
their survival.One more American jet flew over the courtyard and the rest of the
surviving Soviet comandoes lost their lives.
-“God,is this third world war?”- Tadek Vangard whispered when he was just
reaching the jungle.Before they disseapearred inside the jungle they looked back
at the “war” place. Their villa was no longer existing and paratroopers were
parachuting out of the fighting jets.
One thing was sure: the deadly game was not over yet.Now the Americans wanted to
get them.Once again.They had no time to loose now.They began to run into the
safety of the deep jungle.Luckilly for them the island was quite large and it
would take quite some time for their pursuers to catch them eventually.At least
a week.It was going to be now a sort of a deadly chess game among all of
them.Who knows,the Soviets might also appear with their fighting jets over the
island: the strategy Beehive seemed also to them of uppermost importance.It was
not easy to move through all those wonders of the nature,the monumental trees
and whatever sort of brushwood,but somehow they managed to get deeper and deeper
into the heart of the jungle.They could come up on some animal beast at any
moment.Deadly dangers lied in wait constantly.Especially from snakes,not really
seen.There was not much light in the deepness of the jungle.The monumental trees
seemed to be successful in keeping the misteries of the jungle unknown even to
the never ending curiosity of the light.But they needed some light…They wanted
to heave a sigh of relief for a moment at least while having a delicious
sun-bath.They were going to have that opportunity quite soon.There was a place
ahead of them which was definitely much lighter than all the other places
around,thanks to the stream of the sun rays.They ran towards that place.They
found themselves there only to be confronted not by any wild animal but by a
mysterious,muscular guy,built solidly,with dark hair and blue eyes.He must have
been an European or American.The features of his face,with strong jaws and high
forehead suggested this.The three fugitives were indeed taken by a surprise.They
expected rather a wild animal but not a guy behaving in an aggressive way
-“For Heaven’s sake,who are you?!”- Steven Mac Dantosch demanded. The
muscular guy began to laugh.What was strange he was not afraid of them.He did
not have to.He had a gun in one of his hands.
-“Who am I?”- He reacted with amusement.-“I do am…Carlos!…The real
Carlos! Not the Venezulan one who is my double and a servant...I have a number
of my doubles…Quite a big number...This way I am able to strike at four points
of the world and the stupid Americans and their allies try to understand how
that possible Carlos can act so fast and so instant at different parts of the
-“Mind your words!”- Steven Mac Dantosch warned him.He,however,knew Carlos
had an advantage.The gun.-“Why are you so anty-western? Are you a Russian in
the first place?”
The guy who called himself Carlos bursted with a ripple of laughter.
-“Am I a Russian? Damn it,I am an Englishman!…I was born to an aristocratic
family of Eleonora and Grigg Bunty Desmond on the Isle of Wight in England…I
can tell you my real name because I am going to kill you and,therefore,am sure
nobody will ever know my real identity…My real name is…Bart Grover
Desmond…I am the real,legendary Carlos!...”
-“Why do you do this? Why do you kill innocent people?”- Steven Mac Dantosch
asked.In fact he thought feverishly what he could do to save himself and his
friends.The guy was clearly a psychopath.
Carlos again bursted with a ripple of laughter.
-“You want to know why?”- He reacted.-“Well,I’ll tell you why.I hate the
world and I hate people.Adolf Hitler did not succeed but I will succeed.The
terror will take the world over.”
-“You are a madman,Carlos!”
-“No…A clever man,an exceptionally clever man…Give me the strategy
Beehive!”- Carlos looked now at Tadek Vangard.
-“I have no whatsoever strategy.”- Tadek Vangard answered.
-“I am going to count to twenty.If you do not give me the strategy by
then,I’ll kill you.”-Carlos began to count.
-“Wait!…Wait a moment!”- Steven Mac Dantosch roared.-“I propose another
solution.We fight.I can prove to you that I am much better a fighter than you
are.If you,however,win,you'll get the strategy Beehive.O.K.? I am sure I am the
There was a silence in the air.Steven Mac Dantosch hoped Carlos will get angry
that someone could tell him into his face he was not the best.It seemed to
work.Carlos indeed became red on his face from anger.
-“Let’s fight.”- He said.
-“But put away your gun.”- Steven Mac Dantosch demanded. Carlos threw the
gun away from himself,but not too far.Just enough far to reach it in case he
might be loosing the fight.Just in case.He,however,was sure of himself.A typical
English feeling.This was the only English thing he seemed to accept.They
confronted each other now.They began to fight…
