Pet left hoping her partner would be okay. Why do I care? Pet thought as she went in search of Mr. Gordon.

She found him as he was exiting the hotel. Pet walked up to him and tipped her hat and asked him if he had time for a friendly conversation over a beer.

“Anytime is a good time for friendly conversation and a beer, lead the way.” Artie smiled at Pet unnerving her a little.

They enter the saloon and take a table in the back. Artie waves the barmaid over and orders two beers, Pet wrinkles her nose but says nothing. While they wait for their beers Pet decided that she needs to tell him her concerns about Apple.

“Mr. Gordon,” Artie waves his hand at her, his eyebrow cocked, “Artemus, I need to bring something to your attention that I think is rather urgent.”

“What’s that?” Artie’s interest is peaked now.

“It’s Deb. I think McClatchey got to her. She didn’t even remember the conversation the three of us had in the grove and she didn’t remember the conversation we had in my room.” Pet told him.

“Really now? Hmmm this could be bad.” Artie nodded his head.

Agents! Ya can't live with them. And Admin takes a rather dim view to ya blowing em up.

“Pidge, being the blind lady could come in handy when we get outside. How about we position her outside the hall for Grant’s speech. Since she can’t see she wouldn’t care to be inside anyway.”

“Oh good thinking, Pett…Pet. I noticed bess has been sticking pretty close to Jim so why don’t we just leave it that way for now and see what develops. Hmmm it could be that she’s been drugged as well.” Artie looked pensive as the barmaid brought them refills for their beers.

“Jeremy could be positioned outside with Pidge, that would give him a good vantage point of the street as well as the hall. He could keep us apprised of anything going on out there we need to know about.” Pet ventured.

“Very good! You’ll make a first rate agent yet.” Artie told her Pet merely rolled her eyes.

“That leaves Apple and Kit.”

“Well, Deb can continue to keep an eye on Mr. Petersen and Dr. McClatchey by sitting with them in the front row. She won’t like that but oh well an agent does what an agent must.” Pet snickered and Artie frowned.

“And what about Kit? What if she shows up? Well, I guess she could find a place to fit in. She is good at that. Has anyone heard from the President?” Artie asked.

“Not that I know of but then we do have to keep communication to a bare minimum. Only you can get any telegrams since we know Jim is infected.” Pet looked at her pocket watch and groaned.

“Damn, I have to get to the saloon on the other side of town. I have to meet with my gang. Can you let the others know their assignments?” Pet sighed and Artie watched her closely.

“Yeah, you go take care of that end. And Pet, be careful. I think you are taking on too much too soon. I can tell your back isn’t healed yet.”

“I know that…Artemus…I just don’t have a choice right now.”

Pet left the saloon and headed for her meeting with the gang and Artie left to find Apple.

(OOC: ladies please READ the above posts it gives you your basic assignments for Grant's arrival and speech. Write what you feel is necessary to get your character to that point TYVM!!)

The bells on the mercantile door jangled and Apple turned toward the sound. She smiled as Artemus walked toward her, "How are you feeling Blossom? Pet told me that she thinks that you have been drugged by McClatchey."

"Arte, I don't remember you coming to my rooms last night, nor do I remember going to talk to Pet. She told me about those things happening, but I cannot remember!"

"Calm down, now. What DO you remember?"

Apple told him about her walk into town with the doctor, and getting a headache and having him walk her home. "At that point, I don't remember much, except going to my room." She looked expectantly at her superior.

"Yes, I came to your rooms about an hour later, I would guess. I reprimanded you about telling Pet the information you had about her." Apple looked shocked, "You reprimanded me? Oh Artemus...I really don't remember, but of course, I am sorry..." He raised a hand and waved her apologies away. "You went to Pet to apologize, do you remember that?"

She shook her head, "No, but I really am sorry that I did that. I never would have said that to her...I am not like that Artemus, you know me better than that."

Arte looked at the agent, knowing her for as long as he had, he knew that she was telling the truth. "I know Blossom. You will have to have this out with Pet once we get through this assignment. Speaking of which..."

Arte proceeded to tell Apple her role in the assignment, then he asked "How are you feeling? Do you think that you are still feeling the effects of the drugs that McClatchey gave you?" Apple shook her head no. "Good. Now be careful around him today, Blossom. He may try to drug you again, but I'm not sure why he did in the first place. Do you think that your cover is blown?"

"no, because he was drugging Peterson too. I think that it was just an experiment."

Arte and Apple spoke for a few more minutes, then sure that his agent was up to the challenges of the day, Arte left to prepare for his role.

Patrice rolls her eyes up at Dr. Loveless is a slightly flirting way.

"We have something else in common, too, Dr. Loveless."

He barely looks up from his work. "We do?"

"Yes. I believe you know my sister, Antoinette?"

His head jerks up suddenly and his eyes pierce hers. "Antoinette? Impossible. She was beautiful. A vision of loveliness. A goddess." He comes out from behind the table and looks her over.

"You look nothing like her," he says cuttingly.

Patrice lifts her chin up and pushes back the long long hair. "Surgery, my dear Miguelito, can work wonders. Unfortunetly, they placed me in the hands of a bungler. A buffoon."

She paces while her hair, reaching down to the floor picks up dust. Miguelito looks disgusted. "We could use a new broom; however, you were not what I had in mind."

She turns sharply and picks up her hair off the floor. "Don't get too smart with me, Miguelito. The truth of the matter is that that stupid incompetent doctor is really Dr. Jonas Moore. Bess Moore's uncle and she was his nurse!!"

Mr. Peterson was feeling much better than he had for several days. Luckily he did remember Apple and the two of them waited on customers until it was time to close the store and head to the train depot where the president was slated to arrive in due time.

As the pair made their way toward the depot they met many townspeople that Apple had come to know during her daily duties in the mercantile, and whom Mr. Peterson had known for years. The crowd was excited and that excitement spread to Apple, as if she had never before been in the presence of the great General. Children held American flags and pinwheels of red, white, and blue. Sparklers were lit by fathers and put into waiting small pudgy hands, while mothers tried to snatch them away again. A small band played from a the corner of the depot, many of the songs recognizable from the late war.

Apple caught the eye of Captain Hamilton and smiled at him. He tipped his hat at her, and the two found their way to each other through the crowd.

"Miss Byrne, so nice to see you again," her husband said.

"Likewise, Captain." The couple found a spot where they were sure that no one was listening and Apple quickly told Wade the plan as she knew it. He was already aware of most of the strategy, but he was shocked when she told him of being drugged by the town doctor.

"I know that you can handle yourself, but I want you to be very careful while you are sitting with him today." Apple nodded in agreement with Wade. "I will, of course! Now that I know that he has something to do with this, as do Pet and Artemus, the man will be watched carefully!"

After making some more small talk when townspeople came near, the two parted ways and went about their duties.

Kit arrived at the Wanderer the same time as Artemus. The Wanderer was parked at a siding a few miles out of town. The preisdent was slated to arrive by train and so he would.

Artemus filled Kit in on the plan and she explained that grant was safe.

"Well My Dear shouldn't your wife come along." she winked

Artemus nodded and they went to seperate areas of the train to change, Once they were changed they had Silas pull the train back onto the main line and make there slow way into Apache Junction they would have to arrive Precisly on time.

Artemus steped in to palour car dressed as President Grant and picked up a cigar he made a few last min adjustments as Kit stepped into the palor car he smiled "Well Mrs. Grant don't you look lovely."

"You don't look to bad yourself husband." She walked over to him and straightened his tie "Why is it men can never get those stright"

In the saloon, Jim handed Bess a ring.

"Here, I know this is not an offical proposal or anything, but we must continue our cover."

Bess slipped the ring on her ring finger left hand. This motion didn't go unoticed by Pet.

'What the heck is going on?' Pet thought to herself.

Pet just rolled her eyes and left them after telling them to stay put until it was time to go to the President’s speech then they would join him on the podium as agents.

She quickly left and went in search of the gang. She found them and told them she got jobs for two of them as waiters passing out Champaign to the elite guests that would be invited to be in the hall itself. She picked the two she thought could do the job and not mess it up and they would follow her. The others would be stationed by the back door waiting with a coach to take the President and the rest of the party to Dr. Loveless.

(OOC: The post about the arrival of the President and his entourage is forthcoming please be patient and there is a twist so PLEASE read CAREFULLY and act accordingly.)

The Wanderer pulled into Apache Junction With “President Grant, his wife”, and his Secret Service Agent contingent. There was the usual fanfare and band accompanying them to the town hall where Grant would give his speech to the group of citizens that were picked to crowd the small town hall.


A hush grew over the crowd as Mr. Petersen approached the podium. He looked to Apple as he unfolded the paper with the speech she had prepared for him as he was too nervous to remember his own name. He cleared his throat and looked out on the group of citizens.

“Citizens of Apache Junction. It is my great pleasure to introduce to you one of the greatest men this country have ever known. Celebrated Civil War hero and President of These United States….Ulysses S. Grant!” Mr. Petersen began to applaud as Grant approached the podium amid thunderous applause.

When the applause died down Grant unfolded the sheets of paper he had written his speech on and laid them on the podium. He grasped the lapels of his jacket and looked out on the audience, smiling. He cleared his throat and began to speak.

“Thank you good citizens of Apache Junction. This country was founded by citizens such as yourselves…good, hearty, god fearing folks….” Artie was in his element portraying the Great Man Himself. Kit had taken a seat behind him.

Jim and Bess were standing on either side of the stage to keep citizens at bay and watching the crowd. Pet was floating between the stage, the back door and the “waiters” in the crowd. Outside, Jeremy and Pidge were keeping an eye on the crowd gathered around the doors trying to hear the President speak.

As his speech was winding down, Pet nodded to the waiters and they joined her by the stage. She readied a cloth with chloroform for Mrs. Grant and positioned herself between the stage and the men. When Grant’s speech was concluded she quickly made her way onto the stage and told the President about the change in plans. They would be exiting through the back door to avoid the crush of people. Artie raised an eyebrow but he had no time to question the abrupt change in plans.

The group exited the stage and Jim and Bess fell into step behind Mr. and Mrs. Grant. Suddenly a waiter appeared beside Jim and one beside Bess and they pulled them aside so waiters could put the clots over Mr. and Mrs. Grant’s mouths and quickly hustled them out the back door into the waiting carriage. Pet handed a note to a nearby citizen and told her to get it to Apple as soon as possible. Then she jumped into the coach and headed for Loveless’ lair.

Apple was handed a note by one of her customers from the mercantile. "Oh thank you, Mrs. Anderson." she smiled. As she opened the folded paper she found Pet's message:

Loveless has discovered the ruse. DO NOT follow to his mansion at the edge of town or agents West, Gordon, Montgomery, and Moore will be killed. Grant is safe where he is. I will get word to you what is happening.

After reading the note Apple pushed her way through the crowd and outside. She found Pidge and Jeremy. "Jeremy! Loveless knows..." she was breathless from the shock, "that Arte is posing as Grant!"

Jeremy grabbed her by the shoulders. "Calm down Apple. Now tell us what you know."

"Pet says that we can't get to the hideout or they will be killed!" she was pushing the words out as quickly as she could.

"Who, Arte?"

"All of them! Jim, Bess, Kit, and Arte!" she was slowly getting her breath back. "Chloroform! They used chloroform on Arte and Kit, and James and Bess think that they are working for Loveless, from the drugs that he used on all of them."

"It's just the three of us then?" asked Pidge. Jeremy nodded in affirmation. "We need to get to Captain Hamilton, see if we can get reinforcements at the very least."

OOC: I will be posting again, more to come, please hold off!

Loveless was pacing in the parlor of the dilapidated mansion. "Those meddling secret service agents! Why can't they just leave well enough alone?!" he was ranting like a child.

Patrice touched his shoulder, causing him to look at her menacingly. She removed her hand. "Miguelito, you found them out. You have them captured. The drug will still do what you want it to!"

Meanwhile...Pet was sitting with the driver of the carriage and told him to stop so that she could make sure that they weren't being followed.

She jumped to the ground and the driver quickly pushed the team on toward the mansion. Pet watched the carriage move out of sight, then started following him in order to get as much information as she could before returning to town and reporting to her partner and Jeremy and Pidge.

At the mansion...Loveless stood outside on the porch as the carriage rolled up. He waved his goons toward the carriage and had them remove Arte and Kit, still unconcious, and carry them inside. Bess and James were of course able to walk of their own volition, and followed their "friend" inside.

"Take the woman to the room in the cellar. Shackle her to the wall, but be sure to check her for any devices. They are a sneaky lot, this group of agents," Loveless barked. "Put a sentry outside the door at all times!"

"Now, bring our illustrious president in here and shackle him there on the wall." Arte groaned as the large man pushed him up against the wall and put his wrists in irons.

Kit awoke as she heard a banging and then loud clicking noise. The door of the cell was being closed and then locked.

Her arms were hanging above her, caught in manacles, and she was seated on the dirt floor of a darkened room. She knew then that Loveless had figured out the ruse, and wondered where everyone else was, and were they safe. Was the real President Grant safe?

Suddenly she heard a familiar voice. It was Pet at the small opening that served as a window. "Kit, can you hear me?" Kit answered in a low voice, the chloroform still working on her vocal chords.

"Hang tight, Kit, I am going back for reinforcements as soon as I see what is going on here. I'll be back!"

Hang tight...what else would I be doing? She thought as she jangled the manacles attached to her wrists.

OOC: There is another post coming about Loveless and Arte...leave them alone for now! Thanks!

"So, Mr. President, we meet at last..." Loveless grinned evilly at Artemus, who blinked away the stars that he was seeing from the chloroform.

"Yyyes. And you are?" he intoned in character. Loveless smirked.

"Oh as if you don't know. I am quite sure that Agents West and Gordon have told you enough about me that you know who I am, Mr. President." He was busy working at a lab table where there were test tubes on bunsen burners. He picked up a syringe and filled it from one of the myriad of tubes.

"My good man, I must protest to your treatment. Where is my wife?" Artemus demanded.

Loveless moved to stand next to Artemus and laughed, "Oh your wife...is that really who she is...Mr. Gordon?" He reached up and tore off the beard affixed to Arte's face.

"Well Miguelito, you have seen through me. Just how do you do it?" Arte nodded at Loveless's apparent finesse.

"Spies my dear Mr. Gordon. I have many in my employ." He motioned for Bess and James to join him. "Including your partner, and the new agent Moore." He chucked Bess under the chin. "Such a lovely girl." Bess blushed at her "friend's" compliment.

"Well, aren't you going to ask me why?" Arte looked perplexed. "Why what, Miguelito?"

Loveless turned angry at once. "Why what? Why what? Well of course you want to know why I attempted to abduct President Grant!" he sputtered.

"Oh that. Well, if you insist on telling me..." Arte was coming around to his old self.

"I wanted to take over this territory, and with Apache Junction becoming incorporated and the illustrious General coming into town for the celebration...well that was perfection in the timing. I take President Grant and drug him so that he follows my every order. I become his right hand man, so to speak, and he signs everything that I tell him to sign, including the rights to this territory over to me."

"Oh that. Well of course that won't work, since President Grant is stashed away where you can't find him." Arte looked at James, who still seemed to be under a spell.

Loveless stomped his foot. "How dare you say it won't work, Artemus Gordon!"

Arte chuckled. "Because you can't find him. You have only me."

"Ah yes, I have only you, an indistinguishable double of the president." Arte's face fell just a little. He knew Loveless well enough to know that he had something up his little sleeve. Loveless noted the change in Arte's visage and chuckled.

"Yes Mr. Gordon. This syringe holds the key. You will be drugged and will do my every bidding, just as Mr. West and Miss Moore have been. Even others in town have been drugged." Loveless clapped his hands. "Mr. Peterson, as well as his clerk. Both were drugged as test subjects by my protege, Dr. Scott McClatchey."

Arte nodded. "Of course they were, Miguelito. What did that prove?"

"Why that it worked of course. The clerk didn't do anything because she had McClatchey take her home before he could test it. Drat him. He is such a gentleman, but he did test Peterson. He has a weak will, so he did whatever was asked." Loveless turned to James, "But our Mr. West, he has a strong will. We were able to control his actions." Loveless turned his evil smile upon Artemus. "And now you, Artemus Gordon. This syringe will keep you in character as President Grant."

And with that Loveless injected Artemus with enough of the syrum to keep him thinking that he was President Grant for several days.

Kit shook the shackels she was in and cursed under her breath she had no way to get out of them much less past the cell door. She looked up and saw spider webs Oh great she thought I hate spiders... A chill filled the room and she shivered she wondered what Loveless had done to Artemus she needed to find away out before the Good Dr decided she was more of a problem than a help.

The citizens of Apache Junction had no idea that the "president" had been kidnapped under their very noses. The celebration continued, and though his absence was noticed, most decided that he had been called away on official business.

Jeremy sent Pidge and Apple to get a message to Colonel Richmond while he went in search of Captain Hamilton. The two met with other officers and planned for the worst.

If the agents could, they were going to try to get back their own, they were just waiting for word from Pet first.

Bess was very aware at what was going on around her. The injections that they had given her had worn off. Dr. McClatchey had gotten confused when it was time to reinject both Bess and Jim. After he injected Jim, he'd been called away by for a minute by Dr. Loveless. Bess had realized what was going on and played along as she had been injected, also led McClatchey to believe she'd been injected. She couldn't do anything about Jim at the moment, but the effects on herself had worn off. But she played along as if she was under the influence. Now, she had to convince McClatchey to let her give out the doses.

Loveless left the lab to check on Kit. Pet watched him leave and snuck into the lab. She saw Artie shackled to the wall and she walked over to him.

"Hey there Mr. Gordon, how're you hanging?" Pet smirked at him.

"Very funny now see if you can get me out of this." Pet just stood there staring at him a grin from ear to ear, not trusting herself to speak.

"Well, Miss Pet are you going to help your President or are you not?" Artie growled at her. Pet realized the drug was beginning to take effect.

"Uh...begging your pardon, sir, but you did say we need to play this out and fine out what Loveless is up to then we can send in the cavalry to get you out." Pet hoped he would believe the story she had just thought of.

"I did? I mean yes of course I did you don't need to remind me of what I said young lady." Artie grumbled.

"Then I should take my leave of you sir, but I'll be in the shadows so don't worry. And sir, don't go away I'll be here when you need me." Pet winked at Artie as she left, hearing the sounds of the clattering shackles as Artie shook them at her.

Loveless walked into the cell wheree he was holding Kit and she glared at him.

"You wont get away with this."

"Oh my dear I already have, as we speak the serium is working on Mr. Gordon and he will take Grant's place with the help of West and Moore."

He walked over to her "Nice disguise, but I could have sworn you drowned."

"Well that was your mistake."

"One I will not repeat you are a smart woman, I have studied you intently why you waste your time with these people who are obviously below you makes no sense to me. But alais I will never have the answer to that because I can't have you around and risk you comming up with an antidote to my lastest acheivement. But I do not wish it to be easy for you as you tried turning Voltire against me."

He begain to laugh and smiled at her "On second thought I will keep you around a little longer I think."

"Why Loveless?"

"Oh my President needs a first lady and you will do nicely."

"No likely you may have drugged the others but it wont have that effect on me."

He stepped forward and looked at her "Oh you will help me and you will do it without being drugged Or I will kill your prescious agents now you wouldn't want that would you?"

Kit leaned forward as far as her chains would let her and the little man backed up laughing "Oh the fury and defeat i see in your eyes, such a joy I used to see that in West's eyes but he is used to me I am afraid."

"I will never get used to the likes of you Doctor.. But then are you truly a Doctor or did you just call yourself a Doctor."

The little man looked at her his face turning red. "You... You...." he turned and left the room as he heard Kit's laughter as he slammed the door shut.

Even though Bess and Jim were considered now part of Loveless 'entourage', they were allowed to wander around some of the mansion freely. Since Jim was so drugged, he didn't do much except obey the orders from Lovless. Bess still stayed in her 'drugged' character. The medicine had know worn completely off and she was began to think of her next move.

Dr McClatchey asked Bess to come in his lab with him. There he began making more of the magic elixir to inject everyone with. Suddenly Dr Loveless appeared demanding McClatchey's presence. McClatchey allowed Bess to continue with making the mixture and he left the room. McClatchey sent Jim in the lab to help Bess.

'This is perfect, just perfect,' Bess thought.

Bess began pulling out liquids that were harmless and mixing them up. She instructed Jim to do the same, telling him it was the magic elixir.

Dr McClatchey came back in the lab and discovered Bess had made up what he thought was the exlir. He injected Bess and Jim and instructed them to inject the hostages.

Jeremy and Pidgeon jumped on the horses that had been tied nearby for quick retrieval. They were to find Captain Hamilton while Apple went to send a missive to Col. Richmond telling him what details she could.

As Pidgeon rode off behind Jeremy several townspeople who knew her as the blind granddaughter of the illustrious author were staring in astonishment. They were surprised that she turned out to be quite the horsewoman, and seemingly not blind at all!

After Apple sent her message to Col. Richmond she decided that she was going to go against what Pet had told her and go with her gut instinct. She jumped on her horse and headed out of town toward the Loveless hideout.

As she drew closer to the mansion she reined in Daisy and jumped down. After tying the mare to the low hanging branches of a tree Apple slowly crept up a wooded path until she could just make out the house. She did not see any evidence of sentries or gunmen, but she kept out of sight just the same. I wonder if I can get closer...she thought, drawing her gun from the holster she had affixed to her garter.

Suddenly she heard a click, then a low angry voice.

"I thought I told you not to follow or all of them would be killed!" Pet had her pistol trained on her partner.

"Well you hadn't come back to town, and I went with my gut instinct." Apple retorted. "Now point that gun elsewhere, if you please!"

Pet tucked her gun into her waistband. "All right Deb, but we have to come up with a plan..."

“Well, I guess I can use you.” Pet sneered, “We need to get to Kit and tell her to just go along with Loveless and keep Gordon in character as Grant or Jim and Bess will be killed.”

“Where is she?” Apple asked.

“She’s in a room just past the lab where Loveless is keeping Gordon. I’ll head for the lab and clue Gordon in on what’s happening. I’m worried about him he really believes he’s Grant.”

Apple cocked her head at her partner, "You are worried about Artemus?" she was surprised that Pet worried about anyone.

"YES Deb. I am worried about Mr. Gordon because if he slips from thinking he is Grant back to himself then he may get himself or someone else killed!" Her ice blue eyes snapped at Apple.

"Fine, I understand that. I will go find Kit and tell her to do what Loveless wants her to do." Apple unconsciously backed away from Pet's apparent anger. Pet noticed, but said nothing about it.

Apple followed Pet and the two of them entered the house, Pet pointing out the area where Kit was being held. "There is a sentry outside her door, Deb. Be careful."

Pet approached the lab and ran into Bess in the hallway. Bess told Pet she had stopped the injections Loveless was giving them and injecting them with water instead and that they should be back to their normal selves soon.

“That’s good to hear. Gordon in here thinks he’s Grant and for the time being we have to let him go on thinking that. Don’t do anything to upset Loveless’ plans. Just keep going along with him.”

“When Mr. West is enough like whatever his old self is tell him what’s going on but NOT before. We can’t have him blabbing to the runt.”

“I’ll go in here and take care of Mr. Gordon you keep an eye out here and if anyone comes find a reason to send them away.”

Pet quietly entered the lab.

Apple found a kitchen and placed a few things on a tray, bread, a cup of milk, fruit. She would use it as a reason to see the prisoner.

She made her way to the basement room with the sentry standing outside of it. Smiling pleasantly at him she requested that he open the door so that she could feed the prisoner. Luckily he was easily swayed into believing that she actually worked for the doctor and let her in.

Kit looked up as the light from outside the room fell upon her face. She didn't let the fact that she recognized Apple show until after the guard shut the door behind the other agent. Apple was glad that she had thought to put a candle in her pocket, she lit it and sat it on the tray. "Are you hungry at all?"

Kit wanted to know what was happening. Apple quickly told her to go along with Loveless for the time being, and that Arte was beginning to think that he was actually the president.

"I know, Loveless told me that much. He wants me to continue pretending that I am Julia Grant." Apple knocked on the door to signal that she was ready to leave the prisoner. "Be careful, Kit. Stay where you are for now, Loveless will probably be ready for you soon. We are nearby, and the cavalry is on its way."

Kit nodded and Apple left her, then left the house and went back to the spot where she had first met Pet.

Bess understood what Pet was saying. Once Jim realized the meds were wearing off all heck would break loose. Making sure Loveless and McClatchey were occupied, Bess told Jim he needed another injection.

Bess took Jim into the other lab and gave him a mild dose. As the meds took effect, she looked directly into in eyes.

"Jim," she said, "Listen to me carefully, you are not to listen to Loveless or McClatchey or any of those people. The only ones you can listen to is Pet and myself. Now repeat that back to me."

"I must not listen or obey Loveless, just you and Pet."

Jim looked puzzled for a moment. Bess held up her left hand.

"Jim, you always listen to your wife, remember that."
"I always listen to my wife?" Jim asked.
"Yes, now come on."

Jim followed Bess out of the room.

Pet entered the lab and approached the prisoner. Artie opened his eyes and looked at her.

“Miss Pet isn’t it? What are you doing here by yourself?”

“Mr. President, I’m not exactly by myself but we have a problem. The cavalry won’t be here for a while yet. We need you to continue to do whatever it is Loveless wants until they get here and that way maybe we can find out more about his plot. I will be around should you need me but I can’t be seen by Loveless. I have to go meet Apple now.” Pet turned to leave when Artie stopped her.

“What about Julia? Do you know where she is?” He asked concerned.

“She is in the next room, sir. And yes she is safe as long as you do what Loveless wants till we get you all out.”

Pet left and headed for her rendezvous with Apple.

Dr. Loveless entered the room and stared up at Kit, a devilish smile on his face.

“My dear Kit…I have a proposition for you. If you want all your disgusting secret service agent friends, not to mention Mr. Gordon masquerading as your President Grant to keep on living you will help me keep Mr. Gordon believing he is indeed the President.”

“Just what IS your plan?” Kit glared at him, “I have to know if I am going to think about going alone with you.”

“Quite simple, my dear. Since Mr. Gordon saved me the trouble of getting the real President I will make him do my bidding and take control of the White House. Just think…Dr. Miguelito Loveless running the country that shuns me.” He rubbed his hands together gleefully.

“OH great, just what this country needs another twisted tyrant.” Kit rolled her eyes.

“Okay, supposing I do decide to go along with your plan. When do I get out of these?” Kit rattled her chains.

“Oh you don’t, not yet anyway. I’m going to move you into the laboratory with Mr. Gordon. But make no mistakes…one wrong move and I will have Voltaire make sure every one of your friends in my control meets with a rather gruesome end.”

Kit nodded her head and allowed Voltaire to release her from the wall. He put shackles on her and led her toward the lab.

They entered the lab and Artie pulled his head up. His eyes widened and a look of rage crossed his features.

“WHAT are you doing to her, Loveless?” Artie demanded to know.

“Just trying to show you that I do have a soft side, Mr. Grant. I am allowing your lovely wife to join you. See to it that you don’t make me regret it.” Kit was taken to the wall to stand next to Artie and Voltaire chained her to the wall.

Loveless and Voltire left but they kept listening to Kit and Artemus.

Grant/Artemus turned his head toward his wife "MY dear Julia did he hurt you?"

"No Ulysses, I am well just a little dirty and tired. How are you?"

"I am ok my head is a little fuzzy."

"Has he told you anything?"

"No my dear nothing yet." He jerkedd on his bonds "I promise my Dear Julia I will get you out of here."

She smiled lovingly at him "I trust you my love, I always have."

He smiled in return "You are a strong woman and I love you more each day."
He could barely reach his hand to just touch hers and he did breifly as she whispered "I love you my husband"

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"
