After Kevin and Kristyl had left with some of the men Bill rounded up the children with Montgomery and Kalista and moved over to the bus. There were 5 children out with the men on guard duty so 34 little soldiers entered the bus and found their seats. Montgomery and Kalista sat at the front and Bill began to tell them what the mission was going to be. “You will be taking this bus and driving to the North gate at the air field. Their will be two other vehicles escorting you and the men will be high ranking military. They will introduce you as the super soldiers from the base in Idaho. That base has been destroyed and the children have all been returned to their homes and debugged from the brainwashing they had been subjected to. Some of them did not make it and they had to be sent away.” “Jonathan and Samantha have both left this realm while saving the children. It is up to them as to where their next adventure will take them but suffice to say they went to the same place that Alisha and Peter went.” All the children went silent and then rejoiced knowing where their brothers and sisters were. Bill smiled and at the same time was sad but continued with his SITREP. “As I was saying, you are being represented as super soldiers and you will be let onto the air field because that mad man is going to want you for his twisted purposes. We already have a small special force on that base and they are rigging all the planes to be unable to fly. They will have to be moving to the air field over on the west side to do the same so they may be gone before you get there. Your main mission is to remove all the deadly poison spray that has been made. The long and short of it is to move it all into the sun or some place that it will all be destroyed. I must tell you that it is very deadly and if it gets loose it will destroy all of you and any other humans as well as animals within a few days.” Bill stopped talking and waited for responses from the children. After a few minutes no one said anything so Bill asked Montgomery and Kalista to come with him. He stood and opened a portal to the haven. Montgomery told the children to wait and they would return shortly.
Bill, Montgomery and Kalista stepped through the portal into the garden and it closed. The time was very early so most folks were sleeping. Bill took them to the old garage and they came through the portal to the café’/service station. Bill took them to the other garage and after entering walked to the back and retrieved two small packs and handed them to Montgomery and Kalista. “These are TMG’s and I believe you both know how to use them. As time goes by I am constantly modifying them so these are smaller but more potent than the previous versions. They will still do the same things which is to remove any object or organic into any time and/or place.” He took one out and it looked like a small flashlight with a clip on the side. He showed them how to use the dial on the rear and the one in the front. Montgomery and Kalista both looked at each other and took the packs. “Thank you father/brother we will complete this mission as best as we can. We know how important this stage of the plan is and Hava and Luun have told us where to send the stuff.” Bill shook his head and they all went back to the garden. Carolyne and Christine were sitting on one of the lounges when they came through the back of the garage and entered. Mark and Maria came wondering in from the room’s wing and Jim showed up a few minutes later. They all hugged each other and sat down to drink some hot chocolate and other hot beverages. Evelyne and Eryne came in from the fields to the east and they all sat and chatted about their recent adventures. Everyone wanted to know how the children were doing and Kalista said that they were doing very well and teaching the men how to access their telepathy and some were already opening doors to the levitation abilities.
As they all sat around a small girl walked in from the room area and sat down on one of the lounges. Kalista saw her come in and moved to the lounge and asked her name. The girl looked at her and they both conversed in the mind. Can we speak in the mind? Yes we can so what is your name? I am Alice Green. I am Kalista and my other name is lost to us so you can just call me Kalista. Alice, how long have you been here? I just arrived last week. I have been told that I could go with you if it is alright. Yes you can come with us and there are so many brothers and sisters that would welcome you. May I ask where your parents may be? They were taken two years ago when I was 2 and the place I was put in was raided by the bad men in black suits this year. I was so frightened that I flew into a tree and they never found me. Hava came and brought me here. Those men killed the people that were taking care of me so I wished them gone and they disappeared. I would really like to meet all the others that you and he, she pointed at Montgomery, watch over. Well Alice you will come with us then. Hava was standing next to Kalista and touched her. “Thank you dear sister, it seems that Alice has someone that she wants to help and has had dreams of him. He is where you are going back to and she will need to go to him immediately.” Montgomery stood and said that they should get back. Kalista brought Alice over and everyone gave her and the other two a big hug. Bill opened a portal but it was not back to the bus yet. Montgomery saw Greybark standing on the other side so he stepped through with Kalista, Alice and Bill and they all sat down under the boughs of Greybark and had a long conversation while they ate big ripe cherries.
Exactly 1 minute later after Bill, Montgomery and Kalista had stepped through the portal from the bus Bill stepped back through and then Montgomery, Kalista and Alice stepped through. Alice was holding a large basket of delicious cherries and the children all got up to get some. They all introduced themselves and conversed while they ate the cherries. Alice finally asked where she might find a man named Isaac. Bill told her that he would take her to him. Bill said farewell to the children and told Montgomery that he would see him soon. With that He and Alice left the bus. By all reckoning of time it was 1:00 AM when Bill brought Alice to Isaac who was standing guard duty out by the chopper. He had been thinking of all that Kristyl had said about thinking of flying and using the belt. Sure he saw Fred fly up and bonk himself and he also saw Kristyl and Kevin both do the flying thing and actually turn invisible but he had not had one of the children instructing him like so many of the other men had. His thoughts were locked into the war and the sickness of the world and what he was doing to fight the Emperors forces so he had not thought about spending time with the children. He had spoken with Kevin and Kristyl when they came through to go back to the chopper an hour or so earlier and Kristyl had told him that he really should get to know the children because they were special. He had seen some of their special capabilities when they were on the Canyon road after the demise of Sergeant Thomson and the little girl Alisha and he did think it was amazing but he was very involved in their overall mission and kept his mind on that.
As he was contemplating how they would be getting on the base and how to get around those damn drones that seemed to permeate the air around this whole desert he heard someone coming from the camp. He thought it might be a relief so he could eat. He was hungry when they first came out and then he had to relieve Frank and now all he had was one can of K-rations which really was not that good. The Man that walked up to his position was the Major he had seen earlier and he had a small child with him. He did not know quite what to think at first so he stood up and saluted the Major. Bill saluted him back and told him to be at ease Corporal. “I am going to meet with Kevin and Kristyl and this young child has requested to meet with you.” Isaac said “yes sir but this is no place for a child to be.” The little girl stepped forward and said “Isaac I need to talk to you about your sister Elsie and your Mom.” Isaac looked at her with his mouth wide open and just stared. The little girl looked up at him and smiled. “I am Alice and I am here to help you but first you had better close your mouth or the bugs will find a home.” Bill smiled also and said “I will be moseying along now soldier so you watch over this child and she will watch over you.” With that Bill headed for the chopper and disappeared into the night.
“How do you know my sister and my mother? You aren’t old enough to have traveled very far and where are your parents?” “How old are you?” Alice had to smile and inside she was laughing but she would not let this man know that she was doing that until they bonded as brother and sister. Isaac was a tall man/boy, he was only 22 years old himself but he stood a full 6’-1” and weighed 200 lbs. Alice was also big for her age. She was 4 and half years old but stood almost 3 feet in height. She weighed around 40 pounds. She had long reddish hair and could stomp your foot if you got out of control around her. Most folks called her a feisty little snot but she took all that in fun. “Well first of all your sister and mother, Norma is her name is it not? Found me in a ditch at a car wreck on the interstate in Oklahoma. I had been thrown from the car my parents had been driving after the police chopper shot the tires out and the car went off the road and ended up in a deep ditch. Both my parents had been killed and I was unharmed. I was 2 years old then. Elsie found me first and your mom and she took me to their home because the police were still shooting cars along that stretch of road. Seems that a group of patriots were outright rebelling and there was a major skirmish happening at the time. We were just collateral damage.” “They kept me for about 3 months and then took me to an orphanage. In the time that I spent with them I heard them talk about you and how you had joined the Army and how you had deserted to be with the patriot movement. Your mom was so sad that you might not come back home and your sister was going away to some school. I remember your mom talking with me as they took me to that orphanage. She told me that when I get out of there to look you up sometime. I tried to tell her I would but the words would not form at the time. I have to tell you that she died that same year from some disease that was going around. As far as I know your sister is still living and possibly in Oklahoma City.”
Isaac had hung his head and tears were dropping from his eyes. He looked up and said “okay that tells me how you know my sister and mother so how old are you?” Alice looked him in his eyes and said “I am 4 and a half.” “Four and a half, that ain’t old enough to know anything in this world.” Alice knew this was going to be tough but she also knew that this man was her brother and perhaps her father and he was going to do things that would make this world better. “I may be small and not old enough in your eyes to know much but I ask this question,” She floated up to about 7 feet while still remaining in a sitting position. Isaac looked up at her and said “so you have the capability to levitate like the rest of the kids on that bus are you going to teach me how to do that?” “Yes I am if you are willing to learn. I am also going to teach you something that has not been taught to others at this time.” She disappeared in front of him and he stood up quickly. “Wait, Kristyl said that most had not found the door to accomplish this yet without the Dispance cloak.” “How is it that you can do this without that device?” Isaac stood there waiting for an answer but nothing seemed to come. Alice floated over his head and moved outward where she had heard some noise. 25 yards due west of Isaac’s position was a mountain lion and he was slowly moving toward Isaac. Alice spoke into the creatures mind and told it to avoid the human. The lion stopped and lay down on the sand. Alice floated down and spoke more and the lion said he was very hungry. I will get you some food but you cannot harm the human. The lion continued to lie in the sand and Alice moved to the camp and retrieved some raw bacon strips. No one saw the food flying through the air because it was very dark out at this time in the morning. She floated over the lion and dropped the bacon strips down to him and he ate them. After that he stood up and moved off toward the west.
Isaac had sat back down and wondered where the girl had gotten to. Something was nagging his brain and he did not know what to think of this child that was 4 and a half years old that could levitate and disappear. He wondered what else she might be able to do. The fact that she knew his mom and sister was amazing and what she had told him made his heart break. He began to cry again with the thought of his mother dying. His father had died when he was 13 years old and that had made him hard and angry at life. He never got over that and his mother had did everything she could to help him accept his fathers death. He finally ran off when he turned 18 and joined the Army. He was thinking about all these things when Alice reappeared in front of him floating in the air. “Are you okay Isaac, she asked?” He was startled and asked where she had gotten to. She told him that she had talked with another creature that thought he might be food. He picked up the rifle and said where. She told him that she had retrieved some food for it and after eating it had left. Isaac relaxed and leaned the rifle against the boulder. “Tell me little soldier, or are you not because I do not see your uniform like the other children, how did you come to be out here?” Alice began to tear up and then said “I am here because your mother entrusted me to find you and tell all that I have said. I am here because you have been in pain for a long time. I am here because I am your sister. I am here because you have refused to become part of this company of men and children. I am here to teach you and learn from you. I am here because you have some very important missions to accomplish in the healing of this planet and I can show you how to open more doors that are needed for you to accomplish this. I am here because I love you.” “If this is not enough for you to except at this time then I will leave and we will connect in another time.”
With every word Alice said it opened more of Isaac’s mind and his heart moved to the verge of exploding. He began to cry and the pain in his soul fought for release until finally he let it go. Alice saw the misery and pain escape from him and moved to him and hugged him in her small stature. He was like a father holding his child in fear of loosing her. The love blossomed and the bond of this tiny soldier and her brother in arms grew. Alice sat in the sand and waited for Isaac to let all the pain and sorrow and anger go. Standing off about 30 feet, Bill and Kevin were watching as Kristyl moved to the site and picked up Alice. Kristyl was full of tears and love for this little child and Alice was crying also for the joy of feeling Isaac finding peace with himself. Kalista showed up from nowhere and handed a uniform to Alice and said “welcome to the company little sister.”
In the bus all the children except those few that were out on guard duty with the men were listening to Montgomery tell them about the mission. “We have been assigned the mission of making all the poison sprays disappear on the base of Groom Lake. The poison is a leftover from the old Geoengineering/weather wars and has been remixed with a very deadly biological germ. This stuff will kill all life within a few days once released. The Emperor and his people on this base are loading this stuff into planes to be sprayed on the populace and the world. The planes are being booby trapped as we speak so they will not be able to get off the ground. Our job is to make all the poisons disappear to a place that will instantly destroy this stuff.” With that Montgomery placed several images into the children’s minds so the choices would be there. “I must tell you all that if any of this gets out where we are it can kill us all as well as other life forms.” Bill has given us the TMG’s to use as the other teams are doing. We all know how to make things go away into time and space without using the devices but we are the only ones that know this at this time. We all know how to make ourselves disappear and reappear as well like Hava and Luun but again we are the only ones that know this at this time. In fact we have many powers that have been opened to us in our minds that are not known by most folks and we have learned the responsibility of how and when to use these so no harm comes to those around us.” “The powers we will use and need will show themselves as we enter our mission and go to completion.” The tools that Bill has given us we will leave for others. This bus has been outfitted with the stealth gear and the Dispance cloak which we will use even if it is not needed by us. We are to be escorted to the North Air field and are being told to the base commander that we are super soldiers from the Idaho secret facilities. Supposedly he will happily welcome us. Once we are on the base we will begin the cleanup. I am told that the special force that is there now will blow the landing gears of the planes all at once and two of the hangers. The third hanger we will have to make go away because that is where all the poison is stored. The planes are being loaded with this stuff now and we will have to make those containers go away also.
Logan spoke and said “I have asked if I could go with Kevin and Kristyl and Bill on their mission and they have said I could if it’s okay with you Montgomery?” Montgomery said “yes Logan you must go with them because it is going to be very hard for them to find those bombs by using that thing that Bill has created.” You will go to the base and find that General and you are going to have to invade his mind and retrieve the locations/maps where he has planted the things then you will come back and leave with Kevin and Kristyl and Bill.” “You will then know where those things are and direct Bill to find them and remove them to a place that will consume them safely.” Montgomery then looked at Tamara Helms and said “would you like to join Samuel and Mary?” Tamara shook her head in a very enthusiastic way and smiled. “Good then you will go with Logan and while he is getting the trigger codes from the General you will go to this Colonel Saulinsky and retrieve the codes and locations he has of the bombs up in Washington. Once you are done, you will go to the chopper that Samuel and Mary are flying in. They have landed in the Yakama valley and will be there until later today.” Montgomery planted an image of the chopper and its location into her mind and continued to talk with her. “There are three other people with them and they have three dogs on board. You will know them all as soon as you arrive.” Tamara smiled and came up to the seat that Logan was setting in and sat down beside him. She had just turned 7 and was looking forward to being with Samuel and Mary, she could hardly wait.
