A Small Place in the Sun
Chapter one.
Mr. Lucky
George Grant sighed as he sat in his command chair in the pilot house of his ship, the Antelope. He idly scanned the various screens in front of him. His GPS, the two radar screens, and then he checked the instruments reading out the engine temperature, the oil, and the fuel levels. It was late into his night shift, and he was alone. He wasn't tired, just lonely up there looking out into the darkness of the night on a fairly calm sea.
Four hours on and eight hours off. He envied his four companions, at least they took their watches in pairs. Still, it was quiet and he could think about what was awaiting them at the end of this strange voyage. “Strange is putting it mildly.” He said aloud to himself as the thought struck him. He shook his head, took another sip of the now cold coffee in his cup and started to think about just how he ended up on this ship, sailing toward a very strange future that quite possibly could set him an

Revelations
Peggy stood by the dining table. “O K. Well the food and drink is up here, so you can all make your own sandwiches, except, of course for Geordie and Kim. Sandra and Neil, you two will have to put together the meals your little charges want to eat, and then Neal will have to shrink their plates down for them.”
“I guess I will grab a couple of sandwiches and some coffee and get back to the pilothouse.” Steven said dejectedly.
As he turned to the table George called out to him. “Steven, hold on.”
Sandra felt George trying to turn his body around to face the room and it suddenly dawned on her just where she had placed him. Her massaging of George's back had slowly pushed him slightly into her cleavage. Her bra beneath her T-shirt had kept him from going too deep, but his twisting and using his hands and arms to try to position himself to talk to Steven created a sensation within her that brought a blush to her cheeks. She quickly p

Archer, sighed as he fished out his cellphone and found Waldhern's number and had the phone dial it. He hated making these useless checkup calls. Waldhern really couldn't give him any new intelligence on the situation he had not already been given by the Eye.
“Ah, Phoenix. You must have some interesting news for me, to be using your private cellphone, instead of the secure Ship-to-Shore line up on the bridge.” Waldhern said.
“Well sir, as you well know, this line is actually far more secure then what we have on the ship. Only our mutual friends have any access to eavesdrop over this particular line.” Archer said in response.
“Which has me wondering why you would want this call recorded Mister Archer. I am at a clear disadvantage in this partnership. I know very little about my “partner” except that he seems to have very influential friends within your country's government that have kept

“You are welcome. Can I help you out of there Geordie?” She asked him softly.
George continued to stare at her, there was something very different about Sandra. Maybe it was simply that being so small while Sandra was now huge, he could make out many features of her face that would have gone unnoticed had he been his... large size. Whatever it was, she was different, she seemed more relaxed and the strain of her anger seemed to be gone. She looked even more youthful then when he had first met her.
Sandra suddenly became very self-conscious when George failed to respond to her question. “Maybe... maybe you don't trust me. I... know I've said things, gone out of my way to piss you off. I'm a.....”
“A self-reliant woman who was put into a situation she never dreamed o' bein' in.” George interrupted, finishing her sentence for her. “Let’s not start a discussion that we will end up reg

“Is our gear down Neil?” He asked.
“Yes, George, from what I can see here it's down. Good luck.”
Time seemed to stand still for everyone. Steven and Peggy listened to the radio speakers in the pilot house. Neil was intently watching the little plane as it rapidly approached them. Sandra was the only one who suddenly went into action. They had forgotten to put the boat into reverse, and she literally threw herself to the edge of the deck where she could reach her hand into the cockpit and push the throttles back just enough to have the boat reverse itself. She had left the wheel set dead-center but found herself adjusting it just enough to counter the propeller wash which usually pushed the boat to the right as it was backed down into it's slip in San Diego. She quickly turned and launched herself back to the net. She hurt her left leg as she rushed to put it underneath the railing. She grabbed the net jus

The window remained blank for some time. Archer took advantage of the situation and made copies of all the communications, both verbal and written between himself and Waldhern along with a copy of Sandra's e-mail.

Steven blinked and was about to answer her when Peggy literally jumped and said. “We can try out the rifle, it has the power to shrink or grow larger objects like Sandra's boat. I'll be right back.” And she ran down the stairs.
“O K.” Steven said after Peggy had left. “I guess we are going to use your boat.”
“Do you have any experience with fast boats? Like runabouts, Speedboats?” Sandra asked.
“A little bit.” Steven answered her. “I've rented small ski boats a few times with Peggy for a day out on the lake.”
“Alright, that works. My boat is basically a big ski boat. It was an ocean racing boat before I bought it. The difference is, it has three engines, so you operate three throttles instead of just one. Everything else is very similar to what you are used to working with up here.” Sandra said. “You and Neil shouldn't have too much tr

“Send me up a Drink.” George replied. “Aye, I guess we are.”
One positive outcome of being small seemed to be that G-forces did not affect them as they would have at their normal size. George never felt like he was going to black out, even though he could feel the G's pushing him down in his seat or trying to pull him out of it when he went into negative G's. Yet, even those feelings, of being pushed or pulled by the G-forces did not have the same intensity of feeling they would have if they had been their full natural size.
George let out a laugh. “Ya know, I was worried at first that excessive G's would crush us at this size. Yet as I started to test the plane, I found I could push it harder and harder. It's unbelievable.”
Kim was amazed. “When you factor in our scale here, we have pulled 12 times the number of G's a full scale human military pilot would experience

George gave Peggy and Steven a quick nod and headed out the door to get to the fore deck of the ship and to his plane. Steven shook his head. “He really has fallen for her hasn't he?”
“Well, he will never admit it. But I knew he had by the second day she had been with us. I've never seen his eyes so alive before with any of the dates I set up for him in the past.” Peggy said.
“She's almost half.....”
“It isn't her age, or her looks alone here Steven.” Peggy said shaking her head as she put two of her fingers to his lips to stop his train of thought. “ Not entirely anyway.” She added with a small smile on her face. “They are.... This is going to sound so damn corny to say.... They a

George awoke to Steven banging on the window above the headboard of his bed that, when the curtain was drawn back would allow a hired captain to look into the Pilot House from his stateroom. George drew the curtain away from the window and raised a hand up to the glass to let Steven know he was awake. Then he got up and took a quick shower and put on his flight suit.
He stepped out of his cabin to find his friends all waiting for him. He smiled at Kim and held out his hand toward her as she sat on Neil's shoulder. “Ya might want tae put this on.” He said holding a small folded flight suit and some military boots to her.
