Dickie August - Baseball Player -Chapter 15 - Not you Heidi

With his heart fluttering, Dickie managed to escape Heidi’s apartment without her knowing he was even there.

Back at his apartment, he sat in his big recliner and attempted to strategize a solution. “Martha would tell me to take her out, plain and simple. Yet, how do I do it and not get caught?”

While Dickie still liked Heidi, in a weird sort of way, considering he now knew she was not a human, after Cass’ murder he was not allowing anyone a second chance.

He had to pick up Heidi in 60 minutes and needed a plan.

Dickie hired a driver to take him around for the night. He arrived at the ballpark right at 6:00pm, he was cleared by security to get closer to the stadium. Heidi came out and jumped in the back seat, next to Dickie. She leaned over and kissed Dickie before getting seated.

She looked very pretty. She had on a light blue dress with high heels. She did not have on a coat. It was a warm evening in Kansas City, especially if you consider it was December.

“I’m so glad you invited me out tonight. We really need to clear the air if this relationship is going to move forward. Right?”

Dickie agreed.

“Where are we going?”

“I thought we’d get some dinner and talk.”

“Sure, I’m famished.” Agreed Heidi.

At the restaurant Dickie spent most of the early part of the evening hiding in his menu. He still had no plan on what to do about Heidi and she was getting anxious.

“I get the feeling your ignoring me.” Heidi asked.

Dickie dropped the menu and looked at Heidi.

Heidi continued. “I mean, you invited me. Why invite me and then put the giant menu between us?”

“I guess I’m a little nervous about getting in to all of this in a public place.”

Heidi reached out and held Dickie’s hand. “Not a problem. Let’s go back to your place and talk?”

“What about your place? I don’t even know where you live.” Dickie knew they would end up back at his apartment, but he thought he would try.

“Oh – no. My place is so small and ordinary. Let’s go to your apartment – after all, I helped get you in there.”

Dickie smiled nervously and agreed.

Back at Dickie’s apartment Heidi was all business. She ended up in the living room, on Cass’ recliner, and sat at full attention.

Dickie, now seething that she was sitting in Cass’ chair, sat down in his chair. “Well, I’m not sure where to start.”

Heidi raised her eye brows.

“Um, well, I met this woman – Martha.”

“Yes, and what a treat that must have been. She’s a real piece of work.” Mocked Heidi.

As Dickie told the story to Heidi, he was also a bit sad, as he thought he did have feelings for her. Yet, just having her on the other side, the other side that killed Cass, was enough for him to take action.

What that action would be? He wasn’t sure just yet.

As he finished explaining the story to Heidi, he paused. He knew that she already knew everything, but he wanted to see her reaction.

“Wow – that is completely crazy. Aliens? Can you show me how the Alet thing works? Can I try it?”

“Oh No – Martha would not like that. She is still in charge.”

“I understand. But, where is Lucy? What did Martha do with her?”

“She didn’t hurt her, if that’s what you mean?”

“Well, then – what happened to her? I mean, people are going to start looking for her, right? What about her television station? I’m sure they are looking for her.”

Dickie shrugged his shoulders.

Heidi stood up and walked a few steps before turning around. “And what about you? Don’t you think the police are going to have questions for you? You can’t just kill someone.”

“She’s not dead. I told you that.”

Heidi sat on the arm of Dickie’s chair and rubbed his back. “This must seem like a nightmare for you. But, I can help you.”

Dickie was suspicious, but asked anyway. “How so?”

“Let me work with you. You can teach me what Martha taught you and we can be a team.”

Dickie stayed silent for a minute while Heidi leaned in and kissed him on the lips. “Oh brother”, Dickie thought. “She is pouring it in thick.”

Dickie then spoke. “Yeah, that might work. What did you have in mind?”

“You give me the Alet right now, and then train me on it. Sound good?”

“Yes, I think it sounds great.” Dickie stood up and made a few steps for his bedroom. He nervously repeated himself as he spoke. “I’ll just go – I’ll just go - in here and get it, Okay? You stay there.”

“Oh sure honey – but, one question before you go?”

Dickie stared at Heidi.

“When did you know?”

Dickie pulled the Alet out of his back pocket and held it in front of Heidi. “Martha told me – but I didn’t want to believe her.”

Heidi rose from the arm of the chair. “I have feelings for you, Dickie. I really do. And, I had nothing to do with Cass – nothing at all.”

She moved closer to Dickie.

Dickie took a step back.

“I meant what I said about us becoming a team. What if you and I broker a peace treaty between the two planets and the humans? We can help prevent a war of the planets.”

Heidi took three steps closer to Dickie and held out her hand.

“I don’t know.” Said a retreating Dickie. “How would this peace treaty work?”

Heidi quickly moved in and hugged Dickie. Dickie tightly held the Alet in his right hand.

As Heidi released the embrace, she looked deeply in to Dickie’s eyes and smiled. “This will work, if we work together.”

Dickie relaxed for a second and almost believed her. “Can we include Martha and meet about it?’

“Of course we can. Let’s plan on doing that sometime tomorrow?”

“That sounds like a good plan. I hope that Martha will…”

Before Dickie could finish his comment, Heidi lunged for the Alet. Dickie was quick enough to safely pull it back.

A large metallic weapon then appeared in Heidi’s hands. Dickie almost went still but he spoke up. “Alet – Send Heidi right to Martha.”

Before Heidi could attack, she was gone. Dickie had beat her to the punch.

Still, Dickie wanted to believe in her and her plan. To have her and Dickie broker some type of peace plan was the perfect ending to this nightmare drama. Yet, in the end, Martha was right again.
