Episode 7

Several months ago, renowned interviewer and author, Nonnie Jules, accompanied author, John Fioravanti to planet Genesis seven centuries into the future. Dr. John, as he’s called on Genesis, possesses unusual teleportation powers, which he uses to travel through time and space. He can travel with another person just by laying his hand upon them.

Last day, Nonnie was introduced to the big Irishman, ArcGeneral Pat Conroy, who grew up with Marco Rossini in Darymanis City. The two hit it off immediately and enjoyed chatting about Marco’s return from a near-fatal injury. Today, Nonnie finishes up her Genesis tour with a visit to Vice President Marco Rossini’s home on the University of Genesis City campus.

(Nonnie and John appear at the front door of Marco’s home where they are met by Agent, James Drury. Nonnie has made it clear to John that she must get home after she sees Marco.)

Drury: (Approaches them from behind as they stand before the front door.)

“Good afternoon, do you have business here… “

(They turn to face him and he immediately recognizes John)

“Hello, Dr. John! Does the Vice President know you’re visiting today?”

John: “Good to see you, James. No, but he did ask me to bring Mrs. Jules by for a visit the next time she was in town.”

Drury: (Smiles and nods respectfully to Nonnie, and then speaks into his comm unit.)

“He asked me to show you in. Please follow me – I’ll take you to the living room where you can make yourself at home.”

(Once inside, Nonnie and John take seats in two comfortable chairs surrounding a low table, and Drury excuses himself.)

Nonnie: (Eyes John carefully.) “You know, the people around here – well, everybody knows you and clearly hold you in great respect… how did you manage that?”

(John winked at her but his reply was cut off as Marco strode into the room with a delighted smile on his face. He went to Nonnie first and gave her a warm hug when she stood to greet him. They exchanged pleasantries for a moment and then Marco greeted John warmly as well. Marco took a seat in the lone empty chair in the setting.)

Marco: “This is such a delightful surprise! I finished at the office early today to come home and workout with Ted… but I’d rather chat with you two for a while.”

Nonnie: “You look better than ever after your tragic injuries. How do you feel?”

Marco: “Nonnie, you’re too kind. Physically, I’ve never felt better in my life…”

Nonnie: “Please forgive me for interrupting, but I’m not being kind. I don’t sugarcoat my truth and I don’t pull any punches…”

Marco: (holding up his hands grinning) “Okay, okay… you have the job. You can start on my security team tomorrow!”

Nonnie: (Smiles and nods to John) “You’re quick, Marco, and I just love smart men! However, I do have a family to look after…” (Sends John a stern look)

“You returned to Genesis to find that the Rouge terrorists had launched a few unsuccessful attempts to kill some people on their list. How did you feel about that?”

Marco: (Nodding his head thoughtfully.) “I was appalled, but not surprised, nor did I feel panicked. I had more than one chat with Setter Caine who convinced me that I had to tap into the warrior spirit within me. I also had a lot of time on Earth to think about my life, who I am, and the resources I have around me. So… I came back here ready to do battle – to fight for our way of life and for the people I love.”

Nonnie: (Looks into his eyes intently) “I see. Just how far are you willing to go?”

Marco: “The Rouge aren’t going to go quietly. They’re fanatics and won’t listen to reason. They believe they have a holy mission ordained by the Gods. I command the Alpha Corps. These highly trained men and women might need backup from the Marine Corps and the Navy. These warriors and their officers who advise me, will be all the weaponry I’ll need to eliminate them.”

Nonnie: “Do you mean you’ll kill them, Marco?”

Marco: “We’ll hunt them down to arrest them. When they resist, they’ll be treated with extreme prejudice.”

Nonnie: (Sits quietly and reflects on his words and his tone.)

“Will you be able to live with that, Marco? To order the deaths of people? Do you think it will change you?”

Marco: “My dear, I’ve already changed. This isn’t a political debate – the Rouge have declared war on this administration and made threats against the woman I love. Because of my position, I have a duty to protect this government and the citizens at large. I will carry out that duty to the best of my ability, even if it means that at the end of the day, I have blood on my hands.”

(Marco pauses, then resumes eye contact with Nonnie.)

“Tell me, Nonnie. Will my actions make me less of a man?”

Nonnie: “Marco, I don’t know what that course of action will do to you. I believe you are a caring and sensitive man, and I’d hate to see that destroyed by this “war”, as you put it. I admire strength and personal resolve – and you have both. If anyone can fight this war and emerge with their humanity intact, it’s Marco Rossini. I will pray for you.”

(Nonnie rises and extends her arms to Marco. He steps to her and gives her a hug.)

Marco: “Thank you so much for visiting today – both of you. I’m grateful for your love and support.”

Nonnie: “Fine! You and Marie can name your first daughter after me! Just kidding! Okay, Dr. John, I need to get home to my babies and my reality shows – in that order!”

(After bidding them farewell, Marco sees them to the door and is startled when they vanish. Within seconds they reappear in Nonnie’s office.)

Nonnie: “John, I can’t believe we were gone all day – I mean look at the time… whaaat? That clock must be wrong… it says we were only gone for 45 minutes?”

(She turns back to John, but he’s gone. She smiles and shakes her head)

“These Canadians… what am I going to do with that man?”

  1. John W. Howell

    I have enjoyed your tour, John. I think you put a lot of creativity and effort into your episodes and believe you enjoyed doing so. Hearty congratulations for a job well done. Thank you Joy for hosting.


  2. Shirley Harris-Slaughter

    Nonnie, you have to go home to a reality show? My! My! Don’t you have your priorities in order. I just love these episodes and really looked forward to reading them because the characters are so well known. You know what I mean.

    John, I thought we were all done with your tours, so when I got a tweet about this being the last one, I jumped right on it. You didn’t disappoint.

    Thank you for giving us a treat and Joy thank you for sharing your blog with us.


    1. John Fioravanti

      Thanks, Shirley – I’m very glad you enjoyed these stops along the tour. I hope you enjoy Treachery & Triumph as much as you liked these adventures with Nonnie & Dr. John on Genesis.


  3. John Fioravanti

    Thank you for your very kind words, Nonnie. As you know, I had a lot of fun writing these posts and having you interact with some of the characters of my book. I think I have the perfect character in Book 3 to base upon your personality… that should be lots of fun! Thank you for organizing this tour. Thanks also to Joy for hosting me today!

    John, I have so enjoyed taking this journey with you! Your writing is incredible and for those who assume I had a hand in writing any of these posts, I did not. John did them all without me. Again, thank you! You picked bits and pieces of my true character and used them in your posts, how incredibly brilliant (maybe I’ll actually get a part in the next book!).

    Joy, thank you for the kind host (and the reminders).
