Re: A Great and Dreadful Day, Part 7: Twilight of the Prophe

- SIXTY-THREE - It wasn’t long after Elder Steele’s visit that Sam found himself lying in his prison bunk at night yet again, playing the same scene over and over in his mind. He saw Bennett through the tongues of flame, locked in a struggle with another man who may as well have been Bennett’s ident...

Re: A Great and Dreadful Day, Part VI: The Third Nephite

- FIFTY-NINE - When night fell, they moved out. Sam drove; Bennett sat in the passenger’s seat. They had been instructed by Reed Woodruff to drive carefully, especially over bumps. It wasn’t that the bomb was likely to go off, he said; it’s just that it was best to take precautions. They made their ...

Re: A Great and Dreadful Day, Part VI: The Third Nephite

- FIFTY-EIGHT - “Hello?” “Hi, Elder Steele. It’s Counselor Walker. I’m afraid I have some bad news.” “What is it?” His voice wavered slightly. “Earlier this afternoon, President Baylor passed away.” “Oh, my.” He could hear Walker’s slow breathing across the line. “I suppose we can be grateful that h...

Re: A Great and Dreadful Day, Part VI: The Third Nephite

- FIFTY-SIX - Word had spread among the last of them that Odell Swift had been told to shut everything down. Rulon Cook met with Elder Pitt, though, and the news he relayed on Friday was vague. The quorum had been “officially released,” though Elder Pitt made sure to emphasize the fact that priestho...
