MAC DANTOSCH,THE TORNADO MAN - PART II...
The police cars and some military vans have indeed arrived
within minutes.The uniformed men got out the vehicles,approached Steven Mac
Dantosch and circled him and Melissa Charleroi.Some saluted to him,most observed
him and especially the young woman at his side.The expressions of their faces
were serious and matter of factly,showing off the professionality they were
accustomed to in situations as the one they just witnessed.Their questions were
short and laconic.No interrogation and no suspicion was involved in the essence
of their questions.It looked CIA did a good job and the security network in
Belgium was also top class.Nothing strange taking into the account both,Belgium
and the United States were NATO members.A few minutes later a military jet
sprang in from nowhere,danced in the air above the house and then went straight
down to the ground about fifty meters from all bystanders,in a breathtaking
manner.It was British Harrier,naturally.
Melissa Charleroi touched Steven Mac Dantosch’s hand and when he looked at her
gave him a sign she would like to say something to him. He bowed his head a bit
so she could whisper to him her wish.
-“Steven,can you give me your GSM for a moment? I’d like to call to my
mother.”- She whispered.
-“Yes,my love.”- He answered and handed her his mobile phone.She passed the
police and military men and stoped ten meters away.
Steven Mac Dantosch narrated his story to the men,in the meantime but at the
same time was aware Melissa had tears in her eyes.Judging from the expression of
her face they were tears of relaxation if not of happiness.There certainly was a
long way ahead till she was going to feel anything what could be associated with
happiness.He was sure she will have to attend numerous psychological and
psychiatric therapies,and God knew what else.He knew it and he was ready to
confront the difficult time ahead.She was his best and the only treasure and
there was not any other way as keeping an eye on her non stop.
The military men began to question him what exactly for did he need the jet when
Melissa Charleroi began to run towards him.
-“Steven,Tadek is here,in Belgium.My mother gave me his address and phone
number.I coded the data in your GSM.”- She announced when she approached
him.She said it with a loud voice this time and Steven Mac Dantosch could
clearly see the astonishment on the faces of the policemen and the military
men.He knew the talk with her mother gave her some strength,at least for the
Steven Mac Dantosch outlined his plan to the high ranking men and said three
people will be seated in the jet.
-“You mean both of you and our pilot?”- One of them who was a general in
-“No. I go and she goes,and also our friend,Tadek Vangard,who is a brother of
the woman we want to save from the Russians.We have to pick him up downtown in
Antwerp and then we’ll fly directly to Katowice,a southern town in the Silesia
region,situated just plus minus sixty kilometers from Cracow,the ancient Polish
capital.”- He announced.
-“But…there must be a pilot inside! Our man must go with you!”- One of the
military men objected.
-“No problem at all! I can be the pilot.I’ve got enough training on all
sorts of planes,including supersonic ones.”- Steven Mac Dantosch said with a
determined tone in his voice.
They looked at themselves,spoke a few words,coded and professional.Finally one
of them turned again to the Australian.
-“Man,you astonish us but our collegues at CIA asked us to be cooperative to
you and,therefore,we are inclined to agree to let you go with the jet without
our pilot,but only if we get a word from him we can trust your competence.
Steven Mac Dantosch bursted with laugh.
-“I’m as good as any professional pilot.You can see it for yourselves.”-
He announced.Then he turned to Melissa Charleroi.
-“Melissa,wait here for me.I’m back within minutes.”- He said and kissed her.
He ran towards the flying machine and got inside it with the pilot.A moment
later the jet ejected up the sky but not as flawlessly as it was the case when
it came down the earth from the sky.The movements of the jet were hesitating a
bit and chaotish in some way.But just for a moment.The jet then flew up the sky
as if into the heart of the sky and then down the earth as if onto the heads of
the onlookers but turned round in the last very minute as it seemed and then
gave a masterful dance in the air about fifty meters above their heads.No one
could have any doubt anymore about Steven Mac Dantosch's mastery in pilotaging
such a jet.So when he went finally down to the ground and touched the ground
gently with the flying machine there were big smiles on the faces of the
onlookers who forgot for a moment what a horror awaited them ahead of their
inspection within the house:great numbers of corpses which just an hour ago were
alive.They even clapped their hands.
From now on everything was smooth.Steven Mac Dantosch said goodbye to everyone
and went to the jet together with Melissa Charleroi.He helped her to get inside
it,followed her,closed the cabin and was ready to eject the plane up the sky.He
waved yet a farewell and then the machine went up the sky,this time smoothly and
without any flaw,thanks to his competence.
The plane brought them many thousands meters up the sky and the lookout was
absolutely breathtaking.Belgium down there looked like a kingdom of thousand and
one fables,a shiny kingdom with enormous number of lights beaming from every
single road and motorway within the country.A sort of crown on the earth's
face,the earthly stars.Belgium was the only country which had neons at all
streets and motorways.The neighbouring countries had such things only
sporadically.It did not take more than ten minutes and they have already circled
the area where their friend should have lived.Melissa Charleroi knew Antwerp quite
good,from the time she studied there,and when they flew just about fifty meters
above the houses she could easily see the street in which their friend
lived.They landed softly on that street,in Berchem,and there were lights on
nearly in every house.They felt sorry for waking up the inhabitants but the
mission they tried to bring to a successful conclusion was more important to
They stoped the jet just outside Tadek Vangard’s house in which there also was
Steven Mac Dantosch pressed at the numbers of his GSM and heard the voice of his
friend nearly instantly.
-“Tadek,it’s me.Steven! Yes,Steven Mac Dantosch! Put some clothes on
yourself and come fast out your house.We’re waiting just outside.Hurry,we’re
going to fly to your country.Your sister is in a danger from a Russian mafia!”
-“Oh,God!”- He heard his friend to say.-“Wait a moment,Steven.I’m in a
Tadek Vangard indeed appeared outside his house just within a minute or
two,dressed in jeans.He looked startled when he saw the military jet just
outside his house and it was sure he will never forget that moment in his
life.He saw his friend waiting for him just outside the plane,walked quickly to
him and they hugged themselves.Then they ascended up into the jet,Tadek Vangard
kissed Melissa Charleroi and Steven Mac Dantosch closed the cabin again,made
sure everything was all right and gave a masterful show of bringing the jet up
the sky,while the inhabitants looked with a total amazement.It looked so unreal!
As if from the Star Wars movie.
-“Steven…Melissa…I think I have a dream…It can’t be real…”- Tadek
Vangard expressed his absolute astonishment to his friends.
Steven Mac Dantosch gave a short laugh.
-“No,Tadek,it’s real.”- He answered.- “On one hand,I found Melissa as
you see and am happy to have her and also you,Tadek,at my side right now and on
the other hand I’m very sad because of the danger which is hanging above your
sister’s head.I still hope we can save her from them…”
-“From whom?- Tadek Vangard interrupted him.
-“From…Andreyev Golubin and his mafia.”
Tadek Vangard became totally pale instantly.
-“Oh,God,he killed my brother.Oh,my God…”- He just whispered and there was
a tone of a total terror in his voice.-“God,it can’t be…It can’t
-“This is why I demanded to give me the jet.I hope we find ourselves there
-“Have you called to my sister and her husband?”
-“No,Tadek,I don’t have a phone number to them.”
-“Do you have a mobile phone,Steven? I can call her right now!”
Steven Mac Dantosch handed the phone to him.
Tadek Vangard pressed some buttons and he was visibly very nervous.His hands
were shaking.He caught himself on a realisation he prayed to God it was all just
a nightmare of a dream and now he was going to hear her and asking him angrily
why is he phoning at night hours.There was still night,between four and five
a.m.They were high in the sky but he thought only about his sister.
He pressed the mobile phone to his ear.
-“Hallo? Who’s there?”-He heard a male voice.
-“Mirek,is it you?”- He asked.
-“Yes,it’s me. Mirek,you’re in a danger.Take Dorothy and children and go
away right now.”
-“Are you crazy,Tadek? At this hour? They sleep!”
-“No,I’m not! You’re in a deadly danger.Mafia is coming.Russian mafia!”
-“Are you sure?”
-“O.K.I wake up Dorothy and kids and we go.I think in ten minutes.But I still
don’t under…”- There was a strange noise,something as if someone fell down
to the floor and Tadek Vangard’s heart began to pound violently in his chest.
-“Mirek…Mirek! Are you there?!”- He began nearly to shout. But he still
heard something strange,the noise of shoes,definitely of too many shoes.
-“You’re a member of their family? Her brother? “- He heard suddenly a
voice,metallic and dark in tone.The accent was that of a Russian.
-“Who are you?”- Tadek Vangard asked but knew better.
-“A Russian.We’re mafia,man.We’re taking her with us.Bye!”- There was a
dead silence in the phone now.
Tadek Vangard looked at Steven Mac Dantosch and Melissa Charleroi with
expressionless eyes.He felt as if his heart was teared away from his chest.He
was unable to say one word.Entirely traumatized.
Steven Mac Dantosch put his hand on his shoulders.
-“I know,Tadek,it’s so hard for you.But be of good cheer.We’ll catch
them.They don’t know we’re going to be there sooner than they could ever
imagine.Much sooner!”- He conformed his best friend.
-“They might be going away right now in a car.”- Tadek Vangard had black
This time Steven Mac Dantosch remained silent.It indeed was not so easy.There
were so many cars nowadays,even in Poland which actually had such a rapid
industrial growth that was called a European tiger.There were many investments
from the American companies and especially from such ones as General Motors and
One could say Poland was being rapidly americanized,to the astonishment of
arrogant “Westerners” from the so called Western Europe who considered
themselves a better sort than their counterparts in the East.It was perhaps the
bigest irony of all times.No nation in Europe did so much for Europe as Poland
did,from the ancient times till the twentieth century,as for example defending
Europe from hordes of Tatars and Mongols,and then from the Otoman Empire till
the second world war in which the country had a key role,compared only with the
ones of the great powers.Culturally,Poland had incredible achievements,in
music,theatre events,literature and whatever other field.Yet the price the
country payed for all of this was…despise.The worst was anti-Polish propaganda
in some Western medias,which proved the fascists,rascists and all sorts of
terrible people were not gone entirely from the political scene of the Western
European countries. So,perhaps the best way for Poland was to unite with America
They were in Katowice within half an hour and ten minutes later they landed
before the house in which Dorothy and Mirek Starcz lived.They rushed up the
stairs to their flat and saw Mirek Starcz lying on the floor,hurt but conscious
and next to him his two children,terriffied completely.Tadek Vangard ran to
them,took both children into his arms and conformed them.
-“Everything will be good.I’ll find your mom.”- He repeated to them in as
calm a voice as he could only do it.
-“I fear so much for mom.”- Paulina whispered and began to cry.
-“Don’t fear.I’ll bring her back.”- Tadek Vangard promissed but in the
dephness of his heart there was nothing else but despair.
-“Mirek,do you have any idea where have they taken her to?”- He asked this
time the husband of his sister.
-“No,I don’t know.I was unconscious at that time.They hit me with
something…”- There was the answer which only added to the desperation of the
situation.Tadek Vangard reached for the telephone and rang to his mother.
-“Mom,it’s me,Tadek.Come fast with Bolek over here to the Dorothy’s place.Paulina and Kamil need you.Mirek is hurt.Dorothy is kidnapped by Russian
mafia.”- Tadek Vangard nearly shouted.
-“Oh my God,it can’t be!…”- He heard his mother but did not listen
-“We must go.”- He said to Mirek Starcz.Then he just ran out the flat
together with Steven Mac Dantosch.They got back to their Harrier and ascended
with it up the sky in a spectacular way,in the eyes of the onlookers from all
the windows around.
-“What’s now?”- Steven Mac Dantosch asked.He really did not know what to
-“God,I think I must try to get my sixth sense awoken up.This is the only
chance…”- Tadek Vangard said,with closed eyes.
-“What have you said?”- Steven Mac Dantosch could not believe what he heard.
-“Don’t interrupt me,Steven,please.”- Tadek Vangard said,instead.
Both,Melissa Charleroi and Steven Mac Dantosch looked at each other,astonished
with the behaviour of their friend.Was he getting mad?
-“Heavens,I think my sixth sense is appearing within the inner core of my
mind…” – Tadek Vangard whispered.
There was light,a lot of light within his mind,something as if he found himself
within very bright stars beaming all their rays at him.The brightness was
greater and greater,to an unbelivable point.It had to cross some limit beyond
which he would regain his sixth sense.It indeed happened. He saw a grey car,five
people within it,all male ones.But then,he saw also a woman among them.Heavens!
She was his sister! They were heading towards Cracow.In fact they were already
on the outskirts of Cracow and all signs were showing they directed themselves
towards a place called the Blonia,a monumental green area in the proximity of
the old city as original as the Central Park in New York.
-“Steven…Melissa…,I see them! They’re heading for the Blonia! Fly
towards Cracow. When we’re there I’ll direct you.”
Steven Mac Dantosch said nothing but did as his friend adviced him to do.
-“They’re getting to the Blonia! They’re stopping the car! They pull her
out! Heavens,they want to rape her! Steven,hurry up!”- Tadek Vangard shouted
Steven Mac Dantosch had a smile on his face this time.He understood.His friend
indeed acquired a sixth sense,some sort of sixth sense,of course.As much as he
himself aquired one.While the sixth sense of his friend was of a purely
imaginational origine his own sixth sense was of a sort of ultimate martial art
which he already exercised in killing all the mafia guys at Nessegem villa where
Melissa Charleroi was imprisoned.
They were already flying over two hills called the Kopiec Pulaskiego and the
Kopiec Kosciuszki,the hills build with the hands of the inhabitants of Cracow on
behalf of two Polish and American heroes,generals Kazimierz Pulaski and Tadeusz
-“Steven,hurry up! They’re taking clothes out of her! She is defending
herself but has no chance! Hurry up!”- Tadek Vangard shouted like crazy.His
eyes were shiny beyond anything to compare.
Their Harrier was already flying over the Blonia,made a circle over the mafia
gang and then flew down to the ground within a split of seconds,touched the
ground about twenty meters from the gangsters who forgot for a moment about
anything and just looked with astonishment at what they witnessed.
Steven Mac Dantosch was already out the plane and needed only a few more seconds
to appear himself among the Russian mafia guys.Only then did they undersand they
found themselves in a danger and reached for their guns.But Steven Mac Dantosch
turned himself violently and,what Tadek Vangard witnessed next took his breath
away. There was a sort of tornado in the circle in which the gangsters found
themselves.Steven Mac Dantosch was simply invisible.All the wind as if from
nowhere was coming in and the mafia guy who got caught ended dead.The first
guy,second one,third one…There were two more left.They were no match to Steven
Mac Dantosch.The fourth mafia guy was dead.The fifth one caught Dorothy Starcz in
his hands,trying to defend himself at her expense. The tornado went directly at
both of them and they disseappeared from Tadek Vangard’s and Melissa
Charleroi’s vision.Both of them got terrified,for Steven Mac Dantosch and
Dorothy Starcz.But then,the violent movement of the wind became slower and
slower,gentler and gentler at the same time until both,Tadek Vangard and Melissa
Charleroi could see Steven Mac Dantosch and Dorothy Starcz evolving slowly from
the epicentre of the Steven’s tornado and holding themselves by hands.The
fifth mafia guy was lying dead at their feets.
Incredible happiness overwhelmed Tadek Vangard as well as Melissa Charleroi and
they began to run towards Steven Mac Dantosch and Dorothy Starcz.Both women
embraced themselves in their arms and began to cry,loudly and endlessly. Tadek
Vangard in the meantime hugged with Steven Mac Dantosch.
-“Steven,you were masterful! I have never seen you so good in your fighting as
now! You aquired a sixth sense!”- Tadek Vangard exclaimed enthusiastically.
His friend just smiled at him.
-“Oh,Tadek,my friend! I just wanted to prove myself not to be any worse than
you.You proved to be a master in some sort of sixth sense and now I proved the
same in some other sort of sixth sense,in the field of martial art!”- Steven
Mac Dantosch joked.
-“You saved my sister,Steven!”
-“It’s as much your achievement,Tadek!”- Steven Mac Dantosch riposted.
They looked at both women.
-“Let them cry.It will do them good.”- Steven Mac Dantosch said…
