Part Thirty-one
Live Free

Owen and Claire found several nests though they dared not approach them. Some of the nests were those of predators, small ones that had escaped when the Indominus rex was on her rampage and had not been captured afterward.

“What do we do now?” Claire asked.

“We can tranquilize the parents and move them all inside but we need to decide if we are going to keep them inside or let them run free.” Owen thought they should be free but he wasn’t the one who made the decisions here. Claire was.

“I think they should have free run, the smaller ones anyway. We’ll have to make sure they don’t eat all our herbivores but I think we need to let them all have the most natural ecosystem we can provide.”

Owen smiled. He liked the way she talked. She was very different from the corporate drone she’d been before.

“The visitors will have very limited access to the animals, much like those zoos that are really mini habitats. The visitors there watch from afar while the animals live as much as possible as they did when free.”

“I like the way you think,” he told her as he slipped an arm around her.

“I know,” she whispered as she kissed his cheek. “Maybe we could, um, talk about it some more over dinner?”

“Are you asking me for a date?” Owen could be a little coy at times.

“I think I am, Mr. Grady. That okay with you?”

“Yesssss.”

**Note** This is the end of my Jurassic month of July. i have always loved dinosaurs and really loved the original book and movie. I also liked the new one. Hope you enjoyed the ride through Jurassic World with me. And thanks for reading.

Part Thirty
Protectors


“There can’t be any dinosaur eggs here,” Claire said to Owen. “They’re all female.”

“One of your new brachiosaurs is male. I saw myself. I named him Fluffy.” Owen never made jokes about dinosaurs like he did everything else.

Claire wrung her hands. “Dr. Malcolm told me this would happen.”

“You talked to Ian Malcolm?”

“Yes. He called to tell me things would not go well here. So did Dr. Grant.”

“Maybe we should’ve listened.”

“Too late now. The world will get along okay with a few dinosaurs on a small island. It doesn’t need protecting. The dinosaurs do. We have to protect them from the world.”

“We’d better find those nests then and see if we can corral the mothers and eggs in one of the enclosures to protect them from the others, the predators.”

Claire agreed. They hopped in a Jeep and took off to search for nests.

Part Twenty-nine
Speculation

Was InGen growing more dinosaurs than they let on? Were they growing the things he’d seen in Wu’s lab? What horrors had they created with DNA from all the different species of creature he’d seen in that lab?

There were more ethical questions than he could answer, Owen thought. The big question seemed to be was he enabling this by being here, by training the animals?

Since Hoskins and the disaster, he’d been thinking a lot, more than he ever had before.

Perhaps he could at least see what was going on before it got too crazy.

He hoped so.

Chit Chat

Dr. Grant told Owen of finding nests on the island even back in the day, of the compsognathus attacks on neighboring islands, of the massive cover up. He told him the story of their harrowing escape from Jurassic Park. Owen shrred what happened to him at Jurassic World as well.

“I prefer the bones to the live animals,” Grant finally said. “The bones won’t kill you.”

“I like the live ones. They are quite magnificent creatures. I am working with the velociraptors.”

“They’ll eat you someday, Grady. Chew you right up.”

Owen simply laughed. “I’m pretty sure that you’re right.”

Part Twenty-seven
Tiny Terror

For over 22 years, there were sporadic reports all over the Caribbean about odd lizards who were aggressive and attacked people. Many wrote them off to silly tourists or native superstition but there were a few people who knew just what they were.

Alan Grant knew. He’d found the nests on Isla Nublar both times he’d been there. They had to have spread by now and he knew it. He never said anything to anyone though.

So did Owen Grady. He knew his dinosaurs, all of them, and he knew that the ones who had begun to reproduce would have migrated to several islands by now, maybe even further. He read local news and listened to the men who lived locally talk. There was a little chatter from time to time about green striped lizards.

He wondered if he might catch one of them.

He decided to call Dr. Grant.

Opening Day

Opening day crowds were huge. People loved to see where something awful happened. Claire was at the front gate into the park, greeting the new guests before the park officially opened.

Her nephews were there, over the protests of their mother.

“Hello everyone. I’m Claire Dearing, the head of operations here at the new Jurassic World. You’ll find our park a little different than before - cleaner, safer and more fun for everyone. I’d like to introduce you to my nephews, Zach and Gray. These boys are my heroes and we’d all like to welcome you to the new Jurassic World.”

The crowds cheers and pushed ever so slightly toward the gates.

Claire turned to the boys and whispered. “Let’s hope it all goes well.”

Zach gave her a thumbs up and Gray threw his arms around her waist. Claire smiled a real smile for the first time that day.

Ready to Go


Opening day was just a week away! The park was looking good. All the damage was cleaned up and the dead animals had been disposed of. Staff had been hired and trained. The dinos were a little sparser than before but they were all growing and doing nicely.

Jurassic World was more zoo and less sideshow now. The emphasis was on the past and what part dinosaurs had played rather than their future. There was no mention of newer and bigger killing machines at this new Jurassic World.

They were ready, ready for anything.

Claire was keeping her fingers crossed.

Part Twenty-four
The Right Thing


Deep in the interior of the island, InGen had secretly installed a camera to monitor what looked like a cave. Scattered about were several highly trained security men who blended into the jungle around them.

Inside the cave were a set of reinforced steel doors with all sorts of alarms attached to them as well.

Inside the doors was Henry Wu. No one knew where he was. The cave had been designed to go undetected but very protectable. Inside his lab were the samples and eggs of dinosaurs that had not yet been made, including a smaller t-rex built to fight in human warfare.

He didn’t know what to do with all the eggs and embryos. All his supervisors were dead. The smart thing to do would be to turn off the incubators and let them die.

That would be the right thing too.

If only he could do it.

My Best Girl

Owen patted Blue’s cheek while she was in her feeding harness. He clicked his little clicker to let her know he was happy with her. She seemed to understand this.

“You know, we have some new baby raptors. They’re small but already hunting game.”

She made a sound. Again she approved.

He continued. “Maybe someday you’ll have a place to roam free on the island. Like they do now.”

She made her own clicking sound, a gentle one as to assure him that everything would be all right.

He patted her head. “You’re my best girl, Blue. My best girl!”

Part Twenty-two
Always Busy

Owen had hoped that after the disaster at Jurassic World that he and Claire might become an item, but she always seemed to find something else to do.

Something like working on lists of the surviving dinosaurs, lists of how much food was available and how long it would last, lists of supplies needed. The lists went on and on. She was the busiest person he’d ever seen. He only seemed to see her in passing, like ships, one hurrying through the night.

Oh hell, she was doing a great job! She was ahead of all the small problems that cropped up every day and she was well on the way to having the place ready to open back up in a few months. She’d probably get an even bigger promotion than the one she had.

Well, when was done with all that. He’d be ready.

He wasn’t going anywhere.

Part Twenty-one
Tim


Tim Murphy had read the sparse news from Isla Nublar with both curiosity and horror. Hadn’t anyone learned from twenty-two years ago? He seldom thought of their adventure at Jurassic Park these days. He was married and had one daughter and another child on the way, so there was little time for purposeless thought.

He lost interest in science and dinosaurs after Jurassic Park. He’d gone to law school instead, preferring academics to anything in the out of doors. He hadn’t even been camping since he was nine. He’d never even mentioned it to his wife.

So why was he thinking of it now?

He called Lex and asked her if she’d read the news. She said she’d heard something about it but had tuned it out. She pointed out that he should do the same.

He agreed.

Then he called the airline and booked a flight to San Juan.

Part Twenty
Flight

Their nest was off the beach and it had nine eggs in it. The bird who tended the nest was not like any bird who’d nested there in at least 60 million years. She and her mate were midsized pterosaurs who had been extinct since the end of the Cretaceous Period.

Until now.

They had escaped from Isla Nublar and flown to another island, one frequented by humans. So far, they’d been busy with their nest and they’d eaten small animals and scraps left in the garbage by beach goers.

When their eggs hatched, they’d need bigger and better food.

Gray Mitchell still had dinosaurs all over his room. His mom tried to take them away, saying she was sure he’d feel better without them.

“Mom, I still like dinosaurs. It’s not their fault that people are stupid.”

She left him alone but it was clear that she thought he was still traumatized.

He picked up a toy replica of a velociraptor tClaire had sent to him before the trip and smiled. He’d had an adventure! And found out he had a cool big brother as well.

He couldn’t wait until the park reopened. He hoped Claire invited them back.

Part Eighteen
Responsible Party


Henry Wu sat at his desk and read the email from the DoD. They wanted velociraptors, even though they knew by now how unstable and uncontrollable the creatures were. He was sure that someone had sent them full reports of the carnage.

Wu had gone along with Hoskins’ dealings with the DoD because InGen needed the funding and because he loved pushing scientific limits. He loved the godlike feeling he got from creating new life. He was only now realizing his own arrogance.

After the InGen science team left Isla Nublar, it dawned on him that he was as responsible for all the death and destruction as anyone. He’d never told Hammond no. nor Masrani. Nor had he said no to the Dod.

Well, there was no time like now to begin.

He clicked ‘reply’ and began a message.

I regret to inform you that we lost our DNA samples and our embryos in the disaster at Isla Nublar. As far as I know, all the animals there were killed and have been disposed of. I will keep you informed if there are updates to this information.
Dr. Henry Wu


He hit ‘send’ and sat back in his chair.

Part Seventeen – Unofficially


Somewhere in the DoD headquarters in the Pentagon

“You’re sure this came from Hoskins?”

“Yes, sir. It came in from him before the incident on Isla Nublar.”

“These ‘raptors’ – what are they?” The man who asked the question was not far down the ladder from the Secretary of Defense himself.

The man who answered was not a DoD man nor was he InGen. He was strictly off the books. “They are prehistoric dinosaurs that will kill ANY human or animal that crosses their path.”

“He says they’re trainable.”

“He probably would disagree since one killed him.”

“Can we get them?”

The unofficial man sighed. “You’ll have to talk to Henry Wu.”

“I hear that no one knows where Dr. Wu is.”

“I can find him.”

“Find him. Tell him we want raptors.”

Idiot, the man said to himself but to the Dod official, he said. “I’ll do my best, sir.”

“Owen, have you see this?” Claire held out her tablet to him. Pictured was a creature that looked much like a velociraptor with feathers.

“Are we gonna get some of those?”

She shook her head. “Nowhere to put birds right now. Look what happened when the pterosaurs got loose.”

“Still, I’d love to see a live one, wouldn’t you?”

“They call it Zhenyuanlong suni and it was found in China. It might be a long as two meters.”

Owen whistled. “That’s pretty big.”

He handed her tablet back. As he walked away, she said almost to herself, “It could happen.”

Baby Birdie

Owen watched as the little raptors poked holes in their eggs and rolled out, squeaking and snapping at one another. He made sure to take each one of the three in his hands and talk to them, let them nibble his hands and let them pick up his scent.

They were cute but already aggressive and hungry. He fed them bits of meat as they tussled with one another to get to the choice tidbit first.

One of the three was bold. She climbed up his arm and onto his shoulder. She would be his beta. He named her Birdie.

The Birdman Calls


“This is Dr. Alan Grant. To whom am I speaking?”

Claire stared at the phone in her hand. The second legend from the old days to call in two days. What was going on?

“This is Claire Dearing, the new senior manager of Jurassic World.”

“Is Henry Wu still making monsters down there?”

“Dr. Wu is not at this facility now so I can’t answer that.”

“Rumor has it that your giant Indominus Rex had raptor blood, among other things. Are you all batshit crazy?”

Claire smiled to herself. She knew of Dr. Grant’s fondness and fear of the efficient killing machines and she shared his horror of what Wu had done. Objectively, though, the animal had been magnificent.

But she wasn’t going to tell him that.

“I don’t know the answer to that, Dr. Grant. You’d have to ask Dr. Wu yourself.”

“I would if I could find him. Is Owen Grady still working for you? I’ll bet he was pissed when he found out that thing was part raptor.”

So the story about Owen was true!

“Yes, sir. Mr. Grady does still work here. He is at the raptor enclosure. We have some young ones hatching soon and he wants to be there to imprint them.”

“Well, as long as he’s there, I don’t think things will get too out of hand. Tell him I said for him to watch his belly. That retractable will get you every time. ”

“I’ll do that, sir, and thanks for calling.”

Chaos Calling

“Yes, I’m the one who wrote God Creates Dinosaurs. I’m Ian Malcolm.”

Claire had read his books. Tales of him being part of the team who came in to evaluate the safety of the original Jurassic Park were told in hushed tones here on the island. InGen people never wanted to hear the name of the man who told them that ‘Life finds a way.’

“What can I do for you?”

“We’ve heard sketchy reports about what happened there. I was curious about the new one, the hybrid one. Are there more of them?”

“No. Just the one.”

“Do they still make them all female?”

“Yes.”

“You do know the original ones bred, don’t you?”

Claire’s jaw dropped. Ian would have smiled at her if he’d seen her.

“You have to be mistaken.”

“Call Grant. Ask him about frog DNA. He’ll tell you.”

“You must be mistaken.”

Ian laughed.
