11 DULCE

Michael brought the chopper into the canyon where the rangers had their permanent camp. He landed it almost in the same spot that he did before and shut down the rotor. The team had decided to invite two of the rangers to join them on their mission to Dulce in Northern New Mexico. Once the chopper had settled they all climbed out and began to walk toward the canyon camp down stream. The creek was running about half full and the water sounded relaxing to them as they slowly wandered down the path. Susanna wanted to sit next to the stream for a short space to gather her thoughts about having a child. Theresa and she had been conversing about children since they left the haven, in their telepathy, just between them. They knew that this was going to be a dangerous mission because of the other life forms that inhabited the base. They had been informed of the aliens and told that they were very dangerous and could take over their bodies. Some of the alien life forms would also eat humans. Apparently there was more than just one type of being in the tunnels under the mountains. The Intel of there being nuclear weapons, possibly stockpiled there was very trustworthy. The invention that Bill had installed on the chopper was supposed to detect these things so they could use the TMG’s to get rid of them. As for the aliens they would eventually be taken from this world to their home worlds or another dimension to exist. The removal of them from here was being done to allow the world to heal first then make contact in peace with other inhabitants of the universe.

Half way to the main camp, Susanna found a sandy area and sat down close to the water. Theresa joined her and they talked some more about having babies. Have you decided when you are going to talk with Michael yet? No I am still trying to determine the right time. I do not want to tell him with this mission in front of us knowing that it could be the end of one of us or all. Don’t you think that Michael may want to know how you are feeling prior to going into a dangerous battle? Well, yes I have thought about it and how about you and Daniel? Okay you got me there so it seems that both of us have had this on our minds way to much and this could hamper us in our ways to perform especially when we are faced with death of these corporeal bodies. I think we must gather our selves to protect our husbands first and then when we are done we will have our babies. Michael and Daniel had been walking ahead of the two women and did not notice them sitting down on the creek edge. They walked about 50 yards beyond and then Michael asked Susanna about taking Andrew and Jeremiah. He did not get an answer and turned to see what was happening and then noticed that the women were not there. Daniel had kept walking thinking about the men and their horses when Michael called to him. He turned and did not see the women. Rushing back he said “where are they, they were just here with us a few moments ago.”

I agree with you, we do not know anything about these aliens. They may be immune to our protective ways so we should shelve our thoughts and feelings until this mission is complete.“Susanna? Theresa? Where have you gotten to?” Michael and Daniel were both walking fast back up the path. “We are here” said Theresa and Susanna piped in and said “You men are always in such a hurry. Why don’t you both slow down we will get to the camp very soon but this water is so soothing to listen to.” The men came to the path leading to the creek edge and came down to hug both of their wives. “We were startled and afraid that something may have happened to you.” Susanna and Theresa both hugged their husbands and Susanna said “oh you are so sweet, I guess we should be going on to the camp then.”

Jeremiah was sitting at the camp fire talking with Jimmy about the men inside the base that had joined them but were very concerned about being found out. Andrew had told them to not expose themselves and that he and the rangers would lay so low that no one in the base would see them. He had told everybody to be very weary of ever being seen again at this point. It seemed that a whole new command structure had replaced the old one and after the Special Forces had been killed or disabled the base was on such a high alert that shooting the mini guns was a daily occurrence now so even when the rabbits moved the gunners would strafe the areas and it also seemed that the ammo was very plentiful. They had witnessed the supply vehicles coming and going on regular 2 and sometimes 3 convoys a week. Isaac was tending the ponies when they became edgy. He gave a favorite warning signal to the men at the campfire and they all moved into places of obscurity quickly. Jeremiah could here voices even though they were very low. He smiled and spoke in the mind talk to Michael. So you thought to surprise us this time did you? Michael stopped and waited a moment and then spoke back. Well Jeremiah we never thought we could sneak up on you and I suspect that you have men watching us as we speak. Ha! You are so right. Please come to the camp and we will talk of your mission. We have some hot coffee and tea and if you are hungry we can cook up some great stuff.

When they all got seated around the campfire, Jeremiah asked what their mission to Dulce would accomplish. Michael was mildly surprised that Jeremiah knew where they were heading and asked how he knew that was where they were going. Jeremiah told him ”the news came from two children that showed up last night and told us that you would be stopping to see if any of us could go with you. The Children were very knowledgeable and showed us the destination. They did not exactly tell us what your mission would be but they did tell us that you would need at least two of us to help.” “The one named Evelyne said that you would fill us in. We thought they had those Dispance cloaks because they just appeared and then disappeared after we talked for awhile. We could not figure out how they got here and where they got off to but we thought perhaps you could tell us.”

Theresa spoke and said “Those two girls know so much more than any of us. They can appear and disappear without the cloaking device and they can fly without the jet belts. They can also heal wounds both physical and mental. We do not know all the gifts they have and how many doors are open in their minds but they show us more all the time. They also do time travel which is something we do with the TMG’s.” “Ah yes the TMG’s” Jeremiah said. We have practiced with those that you left for us and have had only one occasion to use them on something that the base over there brought from the outside.” “Andrew and Johnny were close on the west side one night when a Semi-tractor trailer pulled in with two staff cars. When they opened the back and started to unload we saw more of those dog things that attacked Theresa the last time you all were here and something else. There were a dozen human looking robots or metal things that begin to climb out. Andrew and Johnny took video of the things and then used the TMG’s to send them all away. Andrew told us that he had a vision of someplace that was void of life and the machines would not be able to move. Anyway that is what happened.” “We do not know where that truck came from but when all those things disappeared it caused such a stir at the base that all the mini guns started strafing the desert everywhere and the personnel where all screaming and carrying on something fierce. Andrew and Johnny had to skedaddle right quick and just barely made it back to cover of the border before the Humvee’s and bikes started to race around the perimeter of the base looking for whatever.”

Jeremiah asked “Do any of you know where those things come from?” Michael looked at his team mates and said “we destroyed two bases one in Georgia and one in Florida that were experimenting on turning humans into machines or robots as you have stated. Samuel and Mary and their team have destroyed bases up north that were making the dog things and there were bases in Idaho that were experimenting on children to turn them into “super soldiers” and now you say that this base has brought some here and it is unknown from where?” Jeremiah stared into the fire for a few minutes and said “yes I guess that is what I am saying.” He looked at the team for some kind of answer. Michael told him that it may appear that there is another base making the robots or metals as they were called that the teams don’t know about at this point in time. “It would appear that we will have to do some major searching and in the meantime your team needs to keep an eye on these activities here and if at all possible get more info of where they come from.” Jeremiah said “yes we have been doing just that since the incident and have not seen anymore vehicles come in at this time.” “Now let us talk about your mission and who will go with you.” The team waited for Jeremiah to name the two men. “Jimmy here will go with you; he is full blood Apache and was raised in that country around Dulce, he knows the mountains and the area very well. He spent time at the base that is located there.” Isaac also grew up around Taos and knows the country well. He has also spent time at that base. These men have requested the mission and it has been determined that they are the best to go with you if you will have them?” Michael looked at everybody and they all agreed. “We would be honored to have both of you” as he looked at Jimmy and Isaac. “We need someone that knows their way around that area and the base.”

Montgomery had taken Ian from the bus and walked a little bit away. “Ian you must go to Michael, Susanna, Theresa and Daniel and be with them as they go to their mission at the Dulce base. You will be needed to pin point the Nuclear weapons that are hidden there. Bills device will not work. You have the door opened in your mind to see them and you will be needed to make them disappear. You will have to use all your strength and gifts to keep the other dimensional and galaxy beings from overtaking them. There is one that they are bringing that will help you to fight off the beings as he is a spirit that has come back but does not know how to use his gifts to there fullest extant yet. You will see him when you arrive at their meeting place.” Montgomery opened a portal to the corral where the ponies were and Ian stepped through next to the fence rails at the back of the corral. He moved to the edge of the barn area and looked at the campfire. He saw the spirit shinning brightly sitting next to another that also shinned. He stood and thought about his existence to this time. He had been re-birthed to two loving people a little over 9 years prior. His mother was a tall women and her mind was very open. She possessed the gifts of telepathy and levitation and could move in time as well as space. His Father was a very bright physicist and delved into the movements of all objects through space and time. Both of them had been taken by the evil men in black uniforms and he was left to die in a fire. That is when Montgomery had found him and took him in. This corporeal body was his 3000th time of re-incarnate and he retained almost all that he had learned in those past lives. His last time in the corporeal body was during a time of war. He was in a place called Viet Nam and the enemy had overrun his platoon of men. He managed to save 5 of them but was killed in the process.

As he stood there thinking a warm breath bumped his arm. He turned and was startled by the pony that was looking at him. Cloud dancer blew air through his teeth and moved closer to the fence rails. Ian reached up and ran his fingers through the hair on the pony’s forehead. The pony bowed and Ian leaned his head up against the pony. Yes I am here to help. Ian told the pony and was startled a second time by a touch on his other arm. When he turned this time he saw the bright spirit. “You are just a boy and I am wondering how you got here.” All Ian could say was “I am come to help.” Jimmy Whitefeather had seen a bright glow by the corral and that is why he had come over. When he spotted the boy with his head resting on Cloud dancer he knew there was something different about this stranger. “Would you please come with me, are you hungry?” Ian moved away from the pony and said “yes I would like to eat something” “Good, come over by the campfire and meet the others and you can eat some of the beans and potatoes we have and we can find out where you have come from and perhaps get you back home.”

The shadows had grown long in the canyon and the sun was low on the horizon in the west. Jimmy brought the boy over and asked him to sit down on one of the log seats while he fetched him a plate of food. Everybody had watched as Jimmy brought the boy up and sat him down and gave him some food. The boy took the dish and began eating. Jimmy talked to Jeremiah and told him that he found the boy by the corral and he seems to be very friendly with cloud dancer. As Ian sat eating the tasty meal he spoke into Michaels mind and told him that he had come from the children of the bus and Montgomery had sent him to be with them when they started their mission to Dulce. Michael was surprised when the boy began to speak into his mind but listened and then Theresa also spoke in the mind to the boy and quickly enough the team heard the talk from the boy. The Rangers had not heard yet and were not totally familiar with telepathy yet. After speaking to the team to let them know where he had come from and what he was doing Ian finished his meal and handed his plate to Jimmy and asked for seconds.

Jimmy dished up a second helping for the boy and handed it to him. “So, would you like to tell us your name and where you might be from?” Ian took the plate and started to spoon the food into his mouth as he listened to the bright spirit ask him the questions. He knew that this man’s name was Jimmy Whitefeather and when he could answer he said “well Mr. Whitefeather, my name is Ian and I am originally from Saint Louis Missouri.” The team held their laughs and just smiled while Jimmy who was just taking a swallow of his coffee gagged and spit it out. He looked at Ian with wide eyes and asked “how in heavens name do you know my last name?” Ian smiled and said “Cloud dancer told me and he told me all of your names.” All the Rangers looked at each other and over toward the corral. Theresa could not keep her laughter from breaking free and began to giggle and then outright laugh. Susanna followed suit as well as Michael and Daniel. The Rangers finally joined the laughter and they all enjoyed a roaring good laugh. Theresa spoke with Ian and told him that all was good and then she spoke with Cloud Dancer and let him know that he would not be beat or starved for his talking with Ian.

After the laughing had settled down and Ian had finished his meal he spoke in the loud speech and talked about his mission. “I am come from Montgomery who is our Captain of the bus children. We all have been inducted into the patriot militia and are moving toward the Nevada base at this time. I have been sent to join the mission of these people” and he pointed to the team. Susanna smiled and welcomed him to the team. “We have been told to expect someone from Montgomery and Kalista. We did not know when or who.” Ian looked over at Jimmy and Isaac and smiled and then turned to Susanna and said “Montgomery thought I would be the best choice to help on this particular mission.”

Two hours into the dark of night Andrew. Isaiah and Johnny rode into camp. Jeremiah, Riles and Jimmy had prepared their ponies to go out and do the night watch on the base. Michael had told Jimmy that they would leave after he got back from the watch the following day and the team proceeded to find sleeping places after a dinner meal for Andrew and his team. Ian was shown a place among the cliff areas and lay down. He had watched the three men saddle the ponies and leave shortly before the other team arrived. He waited until all the others had bedded down and became invisible while floating up to the top of the canyon. He moved swiftly to where the men were watching the base and spoke into Jimmies mind. You will need your spirit guide when you arrive at the Dulce place. I will give you a weapon that will protect you. Your brother Isaac will also be given a weapon to protect him and you will be teamed with the boy. This will be a dangerous journey and you will encounter other beings from other worlds. This will be of most vital importance for you and Isaac to fight off these being while the team of Michael destroys the deadly weapons that are stored in the underground caves. The beings have openings into other dimensions and to other worlds that must be closed as they leave. Jimmy had moved to a spot where he could watch the northeast guard tower and any activity that might be moving outside the base. His mind was open to his surroundings and his hearing was acute enough to hear the rabbits as they moved from one bush to another in their hunt for food. When he heard the spirit in his mind tell him the things about the Dulce base, he thought about his spirit guide the white eagle and listened intently. He thought he could see the vision and vowed to follow through with the saying that rested on his heart. Ian moved back to the camp and the bed and became visible once more and slept until he was awoken by Daniel to come get some breakfast.

Jeremiah, Jimmy and Riles were all sitting around the campfire and Ian could smell the Eggs and potatoes cooking. He came to the fire and sat down while Jimmy handed him a plate of food. Michael was talking with Jeremiah and telling him that they would be leaving within the hour. Isaac had already packed two small backpacks and all was waiting at the edge of the path leading across the creek and up stream. After the meal and good talk, the team gathered what they had brought and began to move out. Jeremiah had given his words to Jimmy and Isaac and told them that two other rangers would be arriving later today to temporarily replace them while they were on the mission to Dulce. He looked sternly at them and told them to be careful and make damn sure they get back when the mission is completed. They all moved out and climbed aboard the Chopper. Michael rose from the canyon floor and once above the canyon he turned the chopper toward the northern part of New Mexico.

Michael had taken a direct course towards Dulce New Mexico. From where they had taken off from the Canyon it took them over Albuquerque and up across Santa Fe. He had kept the chopper at a slow pace and as they flew over the small city of Dulce it was early afternoon. He was headed for the Archuleta Mesa and climbed up over the low hills of the southern Rockies. The Base was located under the Mesa. There was a small base on the surface that almost looked deserted at first glance and it all was very close to the border of New Mexico and Colorado. The entire crew in the back was looking out at the beautiful scenery as they flew over. There was a river with plenty of tributaries. Jimmy told them that it was the Navaho River and he had fished it when he was a boy growing up on the Jicarilla Apache Reservation. His family lived in the surrounding mountains of the Rio Arriba County and he went to school in Dulce. Isaac piped in and said that he too had grown up around these parts although his parents had taken him to Taos when he turned 11. The City of Dulce never seemed to grow any larger in population than 4000 people and was forgotten by the world after 2021. It had been a hot spot for UFO sightings and news since the mid 20th century and there was a large gathering of folks that said there was a war going on below ground between aliens and humans. Jimmy and Isaac both served on the base that was on top and it was a small place comparable. They both knew that there was an underground base but its access was off limits after 2005 so the upper ground base was more or less a station for control of the old nuclear missiles. The base was in direct contact with the old NORAD up in Colorado Springs and when that died or so it was said, the base became similar to a Siberian weigh station and was used to send soldiers there that were misfits. The underground caves or levels had been sealed with large, very thick steel doors and the famous Radiation warning signs were painted on them. Michael found a secured area in a large patch of pine trees that was halfway up the side of a hill and sat the chopper down.

12 THE RAT THAT COULD NOT SWIM

Manny Holder knew his time was up. He had seen the General randomly shoot people because he did not get what he wanted. The man was a psycho and totally insane. In fact it appeared that all the higher brass on this base was insane. The piece of crap Sodimeyer, who he despised, just told him that he was going to take him in front of that psycho and was sure that the man would shoot him with no questions asked. He had planned his escape from this insane asylum a while back and for that reason he kept only one drone in the air at any given time. The other three were on the runway to the west and he had programmed the computer to his command only for them. The only other person on this base that had any knowledge of flying was the colonel directly under the General. Manny had decided to run as soon as the Lieutenant Commander left the bunker. The one drone he had in the air had exploded and he was not going to let the other three even get off the ground at this point. He sat down at the control panel and typed in the codes for the remaining hellfire missiles on the three drones to detonate within 60 minutes. He needed the time to get to the hanger and get the leer jet prepped and out on the landing strip so he could get away. He planned to take it down into old Mexico to Acapulco and then disappear into the jungles of Latin America. He had some friends down there that would take him in. He had two suitcases in his quarters, one was full of the latest currency and the other had his personal stuff. He finished setting the locks on the codes and then locked the console and walked out of the control bunker.

Retrieving his suitcases, Manny locked the door to his room and quickly headed for the stairwell. He knew the elevator would not be safe. The stairs would be a tiresome climb but he felt they would be safe. Once inside the stairwell he began the arduous climb to the surface. The suitcases weighed 50 lbs each and he thought about leaving the personal one behind. To him it was all about the money and what he could do with it once he got down south. Half way up the stairs he did drop the personal case and had to sit and breathe for a few moments.

Commander Sodimeyer climbed into the Humvee and the sergeant took off toward the wreck. 20 minutes later they reached the crash site. Sodimeyer jumped out and walked up to the man in charge of the men all searching for any sign of what may have happened “report ensign.” Ensign Lewis saluted and said “we have found nothing sir it appears this thing just blew up and came down. We can’t find any tracks of any vehicle coming this way either.” “S%#$ this is damn strange.” “I have to tell that crazy man something.” “Well you could take that stupid drone jockey in front of him and let him grill the nut, which might appease him at least. The best thing to do at this moment is to just blame it all on the drone pilot. You know how the General hates the civilian sector.” “That is a good idea Ensign, in the meantime keep searching and let me know what you find as soon as you find it.” “Yes Sir will do.” With that the Commander jumped back in the Humvee and headed back to the base. He was frothing at the bit and all he could think was to drag that little weasel of a drone pilot before the General and watch the general perhaps blow the man apart. He knew that when that happens they would have to find another one to replace the idiot but perhaps they would get lucky and find a true believer in the Emperor. He was getting tired of hiring these civilians only to have them desert or cause deep trouble for the operations of the Emperor.

Manny was so far out of shape that climbing the stairs was giving him pains in his side. He had dumped the first suitcase but the one he was carrying had all the currency and he was not going to let that go. The stairs were 30 to 40 flights and he was turning red in the face and breathing so hard by the time he reached the ground floor landing he had to sit down and catch his breath. He felt very light headed as he leaned back against the wall. He looked at his time piece and swore. It had taken him almost 30 minutes since he left the bunker. He was wishing he would have given himself at least 90 minutes. He knew it was going to take him at least another 10 minutes to reach the hanger provided the car was still where he had parked it. That would leave him just 20 minutes to get the jet powered and out on the runway. The Drones were parked off to the side so he would have to make it into the air before they all blew and that was going to be very close. He stood up and felt very woozy but pushed through the door into the main room. He managed to stumble to the exit and moved around to the back of the building where his car was parked. As he reached the car and opened the door he felt sharp pains in his chest. He stood for a moment and let them subside. He threw the suitcase in the back and climbed in. Starting the car seemed like it took forever to him. The entire thing seemed in slow motion. For a moment he thought the charge on the car might be dead but it finally started. He was sweating profusely as he backed up and then went forward. He was breathing hard again and the pain in his chest was getting worse. He was weaving to the side with the car as he headed for the hanger. He felt like he might pass out so he stopped the car for a moment and reached for the water bottle that was in the carrier at the console. After taking two large swigs he put the car into forward again and continued to weave toward the hanger. His time piece beeped and he knew it was a five minute warning. He swore as his vision began to be blurry and the pain in his chest felt like a hammer smashing against his ribs. His last vision was seeing the drones rushing at him as the car careened into the first one.

The explosions from the hellfire missiles detonating and the car exploding at the same time shook the entire central base. Sodimeyer had just arrived back to the main bunker building when everything exploded. The Humvee was shaken and glass was blown out of the building. General Wagger and Colonel Saulinsky were in the elevator half way to the surface when the explosion caused the elevator to stop and a deep noise made them cover their ears. “My God Colonel could we be under attack?” “I don’t know sir but we should get back and gather those codes as quick as possible. The General began to punch the buttons on the elevator car and said “we need commander Sodimeyer’s SITREP on that incident out by the east gate and we need that pipsqueak drone pilot also. I want answers and weather or not we are under attack.” As he finished his tirade the elevator began to move and dropped back to the lower level.

“Oh one more thing Colonel, I have been informed that we will be accommodating a company of children super soldiers from the experimental base up in Idaho. These children have been inducted and trained to perform and infiltrate the civilian population. “I was quite skeptical about the whole operation at first and frankly thought it would be a waste of our time.” “The Emperor told me that this experimentation was totally different than the crap that was going on down in Georgia.” The elevator car stopped and the door opened onto the corridor of the lower level. Both men walked out and headed for their perspective rooms. “We are to put these children up for a week and then assign them into the cities and towns around Nevada. They have been programmed to subdue the population and round them up for the concentration camps we have rejuvenated around the state.” “This is a test and if it works then these children will be dispersed into other states to the east.” Well Colonel we both know that this stuff we are about to release is going to make all of this a mute point but we are going to accommodate this latest mad scheme of the Emperor for now.” ‘The super soldiers are due to arrive tomorrow at the North Air Field gate and we will welcome them and put them up in that sealed barracks up there. I am being told that the planes are being loaded and it could be, at the most two more weeks before all is ready. Those children are a nuisance at this time but we will take care of them shortly before our operation begins, do you get my meaning?” Colonel Saulinsky shook his head in acknowledgment all the while thinking of some way to off this mad man. The very idea of killing children even if they had been experimented on and turned into little robots made the bile in his stomach rise into his throat. The General stopped at his door and told the Colonel to meet him shortly to find out just what had happened and be ready to go red on the plan if need be. Saulinsky headed for his room to retrieve the codes and give more thought to getting rid of this mad man.

13 THE CHILDREN OF THE BUS (Company B)

The light of the early morning was becoming brighter as the sun began to rise over the eastern horizon. Montgomery took Tamara and opened a portal for her to go and be with Samuel and Mary and their crew. All the other children came from the bus and moved to the campfires under the camouflage netting. Breakfast was being cooked and all the men except the ones on guard duty were moving around loading up the few things that had been used for the camp. They would be moving out for the main camp of the patriots before invading the bases at Groom Lake. It was 0615 in the morning and activity was quite busy. The children all gathered around and helped while some grabbed some food. Kevin, Kristyl and Bill were sitting around one of the campfires and eating. They had entered a portal to the Haven earlier and retrieved some very delicious foods for everyone. Logan approached Kevin and said “Montgomery has told me that I should be going with you on this mission.” Kevin smiled and saluted him and then shook his hand. “We are honored to have you.” Kristyl smiled and then gave the boy a hug. Bill spoke in the mind and told him he was very glad and proud to have him along.

The men on guard duty came in with the children that had been with them during their watch and began to eat. Just a few went back out and stood watch while the camp was being striped and everything was being readied to move out. Kevin, Kristyl, Bill and Logan all said their farewells and moved to the chopper and were soon in the air on their way to the coast. Keegan had taken Isaac and Alice in his Humvee. Some of the children piled into the troop carrier with the men and one or two climbed into the scout car and the other Humvee’s. The convoy moved out and soon was on its way to the west moving slowly over the rough goat trail and making a roadway to the main camp. The large booms they had all heard earlier in the morning made them all a bit Leary but the radar gear did not pick up any more drones as they moved closer to the main camp. Keegan had sent scouts out earlier on dirt bikes that had been equipped with stealth gear modules. The men reported back every 30 minutes and so far everything was clear.

When the convoy pulled into the small clearing between two hills, all that was visible was sage brush and yucca trees. Montgomery knew that the main force was dug into the side of one of the hills but the camouflage was so good that nothing but desert with brush and rocks and trees could be seen. Keegan drove up to what looked like the side of a hill and hopped out of his Humvee. A door opened in the hill side and a Major walked out and shook his hand. After a few moments a large opening appeared in the hill side and all the vehicles were pulled into a large hanger bay. Once inside the doors were closed and everyone began getting out and stretching. The west hill was a very large hanger that had been concealed to look like a natural hill in the surrounding hills of this area of the desert. There were tunnels leading to other quarters and secret doors to the outside so personnel could leave and enter without being seen.

The base camp was located 10 miles to the North of the Northern Air Field and had been installed around 2 years earlier. The personnel that were stationed there had watched the west air field and the eastern entrance also. The North air field had been the center of interest for quite awhile now since the planes began to arrive and when they started arriving at the west field that became of more interest also. It was known that there was a south air field but the watchers down there had continued to report that no planes had arrived at this time. The road to the north gate split from the main east road and ran close to the boundary fence of Groom Creek. The desert was the only way to get to the north gate from the base camp but was fairly flat and only a few washes had to be crossed between the camp and the gate. The bus was being changed back into its original physical appearance and would resemble the standard Army issue vehicle before it would be going to the North gate.

Major Joseph Wheeler asked Montgomery to assemble all the children in an area that was set up with tables. He wanted to give a SITREP and go over the mission. He also assembled the team of men that would be leading the bus to the base. When all the children that came in were assembled they were standing in a loose formation. Joseph looked at them and was amazed and impressed. They were all well fitted in the camouflaged fatigues of the desert uniform. The Captain and Lieutenant were the tallest of the bunch but there were a few others that came close to their height. He wondered just how old these children were but knew that they could do some amazing things that even his own men could not do. The Captain stood around 2 meters and looked to be around 180lbs or better in weight. The boy could pass for a man in his 20’s and in his mind he made a note to ask his age. The Lieutenant was a striking female with long dark hair. Her stance and figure suggested that she could weigh in at around 130 but he was not going to go there with this young woman. He figured that she could hold her own in a hand to hand combat with any one of his men. All the other children looked quite healthy and very fit even the shortest one which was a young female child. Her blond hair and stark blue eyes fit her perfectly. He wanted to know these children before he sent them into a dangerous area but time was not on their side at the moment.

“Well Captain and Lieutenant I have been told how brave and competent your company is and how you managed to save my squad in getting down that dangerous canyon road. They also tell me that all of your company has been teaching them some very useful tools. I would like to learn some of that myself when we have more time.” Montgomery acknowledged that request with a nod. “Now I would like to assign your company with an accommodation and welcome you all to this Patriot Militia. We are going to call you company B at this point and from now on you all belong to that company.” He saluted the entire company and all the children saluted back. “You all may relax and get some chow while I talk with your Captain and your Lieutenant.”

The Major led them to a door that entered into a room full of communication equipment around the walls with all sorts of other equipment. In the center of the room was a long table that had maps and other assortments of books and papers. He asked them to sit down while he moved to a small bar and asked them if they would like some coffee. Both children said “no sir.” Montgomery was looking around at the room and started to ask the Major about their mission when the door opened and Keegan walked in with Isaac. Both men came to the table and seated themselves. The Major had seen them come in and offered some coffee to them. “Well gentlemen shall we begin?” “Yes sir” both men spoke.

“First thing, Sergeant Douglas and Corporal Stinson please stand.” Keegan and Isaac both stood while the Major had moved to a small table and retrieved some folded up fatigues. Keegan waited and when the Major returned he handed the fatigues to him and said “you have been given a field promotion to Captain” and he looked at Isaac and handed a set of fatigues to him that had been under the ones that he handed to Keegan. “Corporal Stinson you have been given the field promotion to Lieutenant.” “Now as of this afternoon, Captain Douglas, you and Lieutenant Stinson will be escorting Captain Montgomery and Lieutenant Kalista with Company B to the North air field gate.” “A secret message has been spread onto the base to that General Wagger that you will be showing up there tomorrow and he is to accommodate you. All of this is put forth as if it comes directly from the Emperor.” We have taken the precaution to verify by taping their communications systems to make sure this charade carries through.” We have already intercepted the call out to verify the children’s visit and arrival time and all is set.”

The Major poured himself another cup of coffee while Montgomery and Kalista both sat silently and talked in the mind speak about making sure that Keegan and Isaac and whoever went with them would be guarded from harm once they reached the base. “Captain Douglas, your mission is to bring the children to this base and spend around a week and then take the children out into the cities and towns around the state to begin the takeover of the civilians. That is the intelligence that this General knows of at this time.” “We have our own intelligence of this General and it does not bode well for the children, the men on that base and the entire population of the western United States. This man is a complete insane psychopath and it is believed that he intends to go against even the Emperor and perform his destruction on the peoples of the country. We believe that he could start the chain reaction any time and our deep undercover man has been feeding us Intel more rapidly lately. Sergeant Major Bollard has a team of men already on the North Air Base and they are sabotaging the planes as we speak. The West Air base is also loading this poison on the planes and the Sergeant Major has told me that he is sending 5 men over to that base to begin sabotaging. That is going to leave him short handed but with you getting there tomorrow will help. You need to pick out two of your men to go with you and once on the base you will take orders from Sergeant Major Bollard.” “We have been told that the south air base is empty and the Emperor will not be sending any more planes for this project.”

The Major looked at Montgomery and Kalista and in his own mind he thought My God these children are so young and have not had any time to grow. I am being told to send them into a very dangerous condition. “Captain Montgomery you will be taking your company onto this base to destroy all of the poison that is being loaded on the planes. There is also two buildings that have this stuff stored and will eventually be loaded on those planes.” “We have been told that you have the necessary tools to accomplish the task and the men there and these that will escort you have been tasked to protect you while you perform your mission. Kalista started to say something in response to the Major but Montgomery spoke into her mind and asked her to hold at this point. He nodded to the Major and said “we will do what is required of us Major.” After giving some additional Intel to Keegan, Joseph stood and said that he needed to talk with the other teams. Apparently they would be setting up in other places around the base and were to wait for the moment when the children performed there mission before invading the base to round up the personnel involved with running those operations. Joseph wanted to be the one that would arrest the General personally and his team would take out the minions that followed him and that wacko in Denver.

The next morning the children loaded up on the bus while Keegan and Isaac climbed into the Humvee that would be escorting them to the North gate. Jerry Fitzgerald and Frank Young would be part of the team. Frank was driving. They pulled out just before the sun rose on the eastern horizon and moved at a slow pace across the desert. The bus got bogged down in the second wash that had some water running in it and Frank had hooked the wench up to it and pulled it free from the mud hole. Once on the south side of the wash they moved out slowly again and everyone knew what to do when they reached the gate. Alice had elected to ride with the soldiers in the Humvee and helped them all with their telepathic abilities. Isaac had grown to love this little child as if she was his daughter and the other men became very attached to her. They had taken a path that led them to the main road a few miles east of the gate so it would seem that they had come from the east. Driving up the road Keegan told everyone that he would be doing the talking once they reached the gate. Alice could feel the anticipation of the men and knew that she would have to do something very soon to quell their fears or they would all be compromised. She happened to be wearing a Generals uniform.

14 LOGAN AND THE MOUNTAIN

Bill had told them where the Fault line begin and where it appeared to end. He also told them that the old maps and records of this fault were not so accurate anymore because activity of such records had ceased to be kept after the destruction of Washington DC and all he could dig up was some sketchy stuff that was still around from late 2019. “We should start our search somewhere north of a place called Shelter Cove.” Logan waited for Bill to finish and then said “I think we should look at Mt. Shasta first Bill. That is an old volcano but it is active these days to some degree.” Bill looked at him with surprise and said “you may have something there young man. I have read about that mountain coming back to life within the last 10 years.” “Although the mountain is quite a distance from where the fault line is shown to begin I would say that if someone planted a nuke close to that mountain it would probably set off a chain reaction that would cause the ring of fire to become very active.” Kristyl asked “what is this ring of fire you refer to?”

“That my dear is all the old volcanos up and down the west coast and around the northern rim of the Pacific plate and down the eastern coasts of the Asian land masses. It extends all the way down into the New Zealand land mass and could even go further. It does run down the Western shores of Mexico, Latin America and South America. A bit of history here is that those volcanos were active back in the 20th Century and the beginning of this century. Some are still quite active today. This fault line we are investigating has been quite active also and with the nuclear trigger will tear large chunks of the west coast away from the main continent.” Kristyl shook her head and said “I remember now some of that history but it was told to us differently when I was going to the government system of learning.” “Yes I suppose it was” Bill said with introspection.

Kevin had listened to the conversation and Logan moved forward and gave some coordinance figures to him and Kristyl. “I think we must fly around that mountain to see if there is anything in the way of a destructive device planted there.” They both made the adjustments and the chopper flew North West from their present course. Bill spoke into Logan’s mind and asked him to speak with him. Logan agreed and Bill spoke how is it you know if something may be in that mountain. Logan was not quite sure what to say to Bill but remembered Montgomery telling him to be open and honest with Bill. Montgomery has told us that your latest invention to detect the nuclear weapons will not work in its present configuration. We have discovered additional information from those people that planted these things and where they are located. I have information in my pack that will help but I also have a sense that will show us a dangerous condition.

Bill was not all that surprised at Logan’s abilities because he had suspected that the children on the bus possessed much more knowledge and abilities. He had come to know his daughter and Evelyne and how they possessed all the abilities to do what they did. The children of the Bus had been born into a new existence and were destined to be a major part of healing this world. He suspected that most children being born into this realm today were ascended to higher planes from the old 3 dimensions. He had been seeing it for quite some time now and what he had been doing was a stage or stepping stone to that next plane. Eryne had been a God send to him and Carolyne and she had taught him so much. She had essentially created the haven and he had put the mechanics together from his learned knowledge. When Evelyne showed up with her mother and Mark and Maria it was as if the puzzle had been completed for Eryne and then Carolyne had been taken to a higher plane and given access to open more doors in her mind. All the wonders that had happened for the past few years were designed to push toward the complete healing of this world. The Haven had been told about and shown of the Children of Paradise and that was a wondrous day for all. So am I to understand that you will be able to detect these nuclear devices so we can remove them? Yes father I will see them where they are and I can also make them go away or whatever you would tell me to do with them. Bill felt the love of this child and his love grew tremendously. You call me father, is that a fondness of my giving to you all back in the earlier years of the haven? Logan held his thought for a moment then said you are considered our father because you are the father of Luun/Eryne. You are our father on this plane of existence but we are all one in the universe with the Divine Creator and he is the Father of all.

Kevin took the chopper up to 9000 ft and began to make his way around the mountain. The snow was thick on the mountain and he had climbed above the cloud ring that hung at the lower elevations. They saw the steam tubes blowing off above the cloud ring and wondered what was happening below that they could not see at this time. Logan told them that the lower lakes were hot and all the fish were dying off due to the sulfuric acids that were coming from the mountain. They were above the tree line around the mountain and all they saw was the snow and in places it had been melted away and they saw bare black rock. Kristyl said that her instruments showed very hot spots on that bare rock surface. As they continued to move they could see numerous avalanches of snow where the heat was causing the snow to melt. Coming around to the North face, Kristyl gasped out loud. The North face had very little snow and there was a huge waterfall gushing down the steep face. They could see some of the mountain side through the cloud layer and the mountain seemed to be one big eaten away gully with the water running. The gouging was taking trees and huge boulders as it made its way toward the valley below. Kevin was watching the cascading water fall when all of sudden a giant blow of steam came roiling at the chopper. He jerked the stick and the chopper moved to the side and up very rapidly. Bill had to grab Logan and pull him down. Kristyl let out a yelp of uncertainty as the chopper was barely spared from the billowing steam blast. “Wow that was too close” Kevin said. “I think we had better be more cautious about this mountain, seems that it is becoming more active.” Bill told Logan that he should sit down and strap in until they got beyond this side of the mountain.

As they entered the Western sector of the mountain it was apparent that the mountain was waking up. There were bare spots on the slopes and flank of the mountain here also. Logan had looked out of the side window as they came around and seemed to be very concentrated as he continued to look down. He moved to the front and asked Kristyl if she was observing any dangerous hot spots. She spoke as she watched her instruments and said “yes there appears to be several at the lower elevations on this side. They aren’t registering as hot as the ones did on the North face but there are more of them and are concentrated in tighter groups. Logan moved back to the rear of the cabin and sat next to Bill. Bill stood and moved forward to get a good view of the mountain. When he turned back Logan was gone.

At the base of the mountain, Logan stood and watched a small fire. He heard a roaring sound and moved to the cave entrance. Just as he entered and made his way about 20 feet inside, an avalanche of snow completely buried the entrance. He watched as the snow closed off the light and covered the entrance then turned and began his journey to the location of the Nuclear weapon. When he had moved forward and asked Kristyl about the hot spots he had detected the nuclear device so moving back to the seat was his preparation to come and send the device away. He knew that there was no time to discuss his action with Bill because the old cave, which was an old lava tube from hundreds of years in the past, had been breached by a new surge of molten rock deeper in the mountain and the lava was rushing toward the device that had been planted there. The device had been set to blow the entire West face loose and start the chain reaction of both faults, the Cascadia Subduction zones to the north and the San Andreas Fault line to the southwest. It had been discovered by one man that worked for the Emperor, how the Subduction zones and smaller fault lines all connected under this mountain and with the right trigger along with the other devices would cause the entire west coast of the North American Tectonic plate to slide into the ocean to the top of the Pacific oceanic plate and the Juan de Fuca oceanic plate as they moved under the continental plates. All of this information, Logan had learned after reading the material and the mind of the general at the Base.

The Cave was relatively smooth on the sides and the roof. The floor was a bit rough where rocks had fallen from the roof over time but it was easy to move around the rocks. Logan could see his way because he used his inner sense. He traversed the cave for around 200 feet and the heat became more intense as he moved further in. He could hear the rumbling and a slow dull roar and knew the molten rock was moving closer toward him and the device. The cave was also becoming light so he could visually see his way easier. He noticed bright shinny stones on the ceiling and some on the sides of the cave walls. He knew that they were what people called diamonds. The cave took a hard right turn just ahead of him and when he came around he saw the nuclear device. It was a tubular shape with a computer consol on the top of it. The tube shape rested in a cradle and looked to be around 7 feet long. The cradle had 4 wheels and he could see the tracks where it had been pushed or pulled to this location from outside. He wondered how many people knew of this thing and what may have happened to them. As his thoughts swirled around, the roaring noise grew louder and the heat was rising rapidly. The device began to glow with a deep red hue. Logan knew that the time was now or never and thought of the Sun’s surface as he held his hand out and the device disappeared. He turned to run from this place just as the molten rock slowly moved into his view. The stuff looked like it was moving in slow motion but he knew that it was just the head of the greater flow and he would be overtaken before he could escape by running. He opened a portal to the chopper and jumped through just as the molten material reached where he was standing. The Portal closed before any of it could move through. 30 seconds later the cave entrance spewed large globs of fiery red streams of molten rock that moved into the forest of trees and erupted fire. On the Star of the earth’s solar system a few specs of bright light could be seen if anyone happened to be observing.

On the chopper, Kevin had taken it down through the cloud cover and was flying around the base of the mountain when the portal opened and Logan literally fell into the cabin. His clothes were smoking and everyone could smell the burnt sulfur. Bill immediately grabbed Logan and sat him down while removing the extinguisher on the bulkhead and spraying him. Kevin took the chopper up just as the molten rock/lava came spewing from the cave entrance to their left. Logan spoke quickly and told him to climb as fast as could because this area was going to experience an eruption on the side of the mountain. Kevin climbed straight up and everyone was pushed down by the immense rush of the upward movement of the chopper. Something hit the front window of the chopper as they were climbing. Kevin and Kristyl both watched as the entire side of the mountain moved toward them. Kevin kicked the jet gear into operation and the chopper shot backward and up at a rate of 600 mph. Bill had strapped himself to the webbing of the bulkhead just before they began to rise and when the jet gear activated he reached out and caught Logan before he was thrown threw the front. 15 seconds later they came to a halt far above the carnage of the mountain and stared in wonder at the total gigantic destruction. The mountain had just blown half of its great peak and side outward. The rising dust and earth was moving toward them so Kevin turned and shot due west and then south. Once they reached a safe zone he slowed and turned. The scene was awesome to the Northeast. Bill looked at it and said “that is almost identical to what happened to Mt. Saint Helens back in the 20th Century. I suspect that dust cloud is going to disperse over a great distance.” He looked at Logan and asked if he was alright. Logan told him that he was and that they should be looking for the other nuclear devices. “This occurrence may set off an upgraded time table of the mad man.”

15 TAMARA AND THE WHALE’S

When the bear had been safely transferred to the blackberry bushes on the side of the mountain Tamara moved to Bethy and healed her wound. She watched the dogs romp and run around and head for the pond. Sally had hugged her and Tamara held her hand and they both walked back to the group that had all made it back to the gathering area. When her and Sally reached the blanket area everybody hugged and Tamara called out to the beavers to rejoin telling them that the danger had passed. Smooth Alder was first to climb from the pond and waddle over. Spotted Alder swam around and chattered at the dogs as they all enjoyed the water. Get out and leave the doggies to enjoy our pond. Come over hear and eat some more of these wonderful shrooms. Spotted Alder could not resist that offer and finally came over. All of them talked with one another and Sally got another chance to take Spotted Alder to the grove of mushrooms. The beaver was ecstatic and ate his fill before returning to the blanket area. Both beavers gave their warm blessings to the humans as they climbed in the chopper to leave. The dogs had been dried off and fed and as the chopper lifted off they all watched the beavers jumping and playing as they made their way back to the pond.

Samuel flew up and over the cascades and headed for the beginning of the Cascadia Subduction zone which was somewhere close to the middle of Vancouver Island off the coast. That is all the information that they had at this time. The evil men that planted nuclear devices along that ridge or so they thought, would soon be captured. The team’s job was to remove the devices so they could not be used in the manner that was planned. The chopper flew around the Southern end of Mt. Rainier, up the sound and crossed the Straights of Juan de Fuca to the west coast of Vancouver Island. The fog hung low over the water and climbed up the cliffs and wound its way across the beaches and through the trees that stood so close. Samuel sat the chopper down on a deserted beach and kept it hot while everybody climbed out to stretch their legs. The dogs all jumped out and ran into the woods and then back down to the water’s edge. Samuel waited for every one to climb back in and then he and Mary climbed out to stretch their legs. The fog was so thick that walking away from the chopper just 20 feet or so made one disappear. Samuel had turned the Cloaking device off for this brief stop knowing that the chopper could not be spotted from the air or the ocean for that matter. Mary seemed distant in her thoughts but he felt that she was thinking about things that she did not want to discuss at this time. Tamara had waited and climbed out when Samuel and Mary did. She moved off at an oblique angle from the couple and then came into contact with Mary when she left Samuel. Mary was not surprised but was not sure what the child was doing when she walked up and took her hand.

As they both walked along the beach, Mary asked Tamara what she was thinking and how is it that she can fly and disappear and make things go away without the use of the tools that Bill had created. Tamara spoke out loud and told her how the children on the bus were born with these abilities. When they swam the canal and came back into the light of this world they had retained all the knowledge of the lives before and the doors were mostly open in their minds. Mary understood the entire design by the Divine Creator to have open and closed doors in their minds. She had been given gifts from the girls of open doors. She had only opened a few but those doors allowed her to use telepathy and to levitate and she was beginning to move small things through time and/or space although she did it in small spaces and kept it to herself other than the girls who had begun to show her slowly in time. Tamara smiled and stopped on a small stretch of sand. She looked up at Mary and said “I have seen you do some of these things and I know that you will learn very fast. We all know that time is such a one sided thing and only exists on this plane. I have seen your childhood and all the time you grew to now. I know how rough it was for you to reach this moment. I have seen when you and Samuel first came together after such a long and arduous journey you both had from the previous times on this world.”

Mary saw a log lying on the beach and moved to set on it. Tamara followed and they both sat listening to the waves lap on the beach. The fog was so thick that they could not see the water from where they were sitting but the sound was calming. In the distance they both could hear the sounds of whales calling. Mary could almost hear the beings speaking in her mind and asking her to visit. It was as if the whales knew they were there. The dense fog carried moisture and Mary began to feel a chill. Tamara pulled a blanket from the air or so it seemed and handed it to her. Mary took the blanket and wrapped it around her and Tamara as they both listened to the whales calling. The voices were mysterious and yet beautiful. Mary felt like she was floating in the air and gave no resistance to be with these beautiful beings. Tamara held her hand as they entered the water and was surrounded by the offshore pod of killer whales. Shamu and Orsa swam on both sides of the humans to protect them as they moved outward toward the Juan de Fuca plate.

The pod consisted of 10 members and they all moved swiftly. Tamara had formed a protective bubble around her and Mary and conversed with Shamu about the deadly objects that had been placed by the ugly humans on the sea floor. The whale pod had watched as the humans put the things in place and knew where they were. They had known or felt that something was very wrong when this happened. After the humans had placed the objects the entire pod swam around them and became fearful of the things. When Tamara had shown up on the beach and reached into their minds after they communicated, they knew that she would be able to remove the things. Tamara had heard the talk and talked back to tell them and told what she could do to protect them. She also reached into Mary’s mind and opened a door so she could understand the whales and go with her to remove the devices. The Pod took them to the northern most part of the Juan de Fuca plate and showed them the device on the ocean floor. They could see the red heat from where the pacific plate was grinding against the Juan de Fuca plate. Tamara moved the bubble close to the device and reached out with her hand and the thing disappeared. The pod swam around in circles and Tamara could hear how happy they all were. Shamu came close and told Tamara that they would take her and the mother to the other one that had been placed but it would take a while.

In physical time and space, the pod brought Tamara and Mary to a southern portion of the Cascadia Subduction zone line. It was located along the West coast of the state of Washington. Tamara saw the ocean ridge that rose above the Juan de Fuca plate and then the whales took her and Mary to a place on the ocean floor where the second nuclear device was resting in a saddle on the long ridge. She knew that this device in conjunction with the one that had been removed and the other devices yet to be removed would set the entire Juan de Fuca plate in motion as it was being held at this time. Once that plate was free to move under the North American continental plate it would cause the total destruction of the Northwestern coast as well as setting the San Andreas Fault in motion also. She moved close to the device and this time she had opened a door in Mary’s mind so she would be able to make the object go away by just thinking it. Mary had felt the entire experience of Tamara opening the door in her mind to use the capability to do what Bill had mechanically created with the TMG’s. When they had reached the object, she reached her hand out and in her mind moved the thing into the sun. The object disappeared and once again the whales circled in a happy movement. Shamu and Orsa swam close to the bubble and bumped it so it moved toward the surface. Mary could hear the laughter from these two beings and spoke back to them in a happy thought. Shamu called her “mother” and moved off to a smaller whale that appeared to be a baby. Mary felt the warmth of the entire pod and looked at Tamara who was smiling as they moved very fast toward the north and up to the surface. The next thing she witnessed was floating across the surface of the water in the fog and coming to rest on the log. She heard the soft gentle lapping of the waves on the beach and the mystic comforting sounds of the whales talking to one another. She felt the warmth of the blanket around her and the heat from Tamara. She looked down at the child that was smiling and asked if they should be getting back to the chopper. Tamara shook her head and said “Yes Mother, I think we should” while smiling and even giggling. Mary giggled herself as they both stood and began to walk back toward the chopper. The blanket had fallen and became sand as the two moved off from the log. The offshore pod of whales moved toward the south and broke water as the joy in them was overwhelming.

Mary and Tamara approached the Chopper just as Samuel was doing the same. “So would you two like to get a bite before we begin our search?” The woman and the child both agreed vehemently and they all climbed into the chopper. Once inside, Samuel turned the cloaking device back on and Mary opened a portal to the haven and all of them piled through into the garden. The dogs were first and sat while everyone stepped through. Carolyne and Christine were sitting on one of the lounges and talking when the portal opened. They both looked and stood up as the people and dogs stepped through. Both of them hugged Mary and Samuel and Samuel introduced Ken, John and Sally. The dogs sat wagging their tails until Christine bent down and touched them. “And who might these folks be?” Bethy licked her hand and Buffalo and Bill both tried to get closer. Sally introduced the dogs and Carolyne and Christine both gave pats and smoothed their fur. Carolyne then said “I see that you have come for some lunch. Shall we get the carts to come out?” Mary looked around and asked where Tamara got off to. Carolyne told her that she had seen her immediately go to the living quarters.

16 ONLY A MOMENT

Tamara had stepped through the portal and immediately walked toward the living quarters. She had spoken with Evelyne and Eryne while sitting on the log with Mary and they told her to come to them when she came to the haven. She made her way down the hall to Eryne and Evelyne’s rooms. As she approached the door opened and she moved in. She went to the lounge while the door shut, and sat down. Eryne and Evelyne both materialized and hugged her as she stood up. Evelyne said “you have done a very wonderful thing for Shamu’s family. She has told us that her baby will now grow and have her own family. She was also very impressed with your mother and hopes to see you after your next journey.” “Samuel and Mary will prepare your way this evening. You will all go back to the moment you came through in the morning. Ken and Sally will be awakening back to their soul connection on this mission. There will be a number of changes for all of you before this mission is complete.” “You are going to open more doors in your mother’s mind in preparation for all to be open to you as you swim the great river to this world once more. When you come back you will grow much faster and time will be very short for you to return to this body you are in now.” You must open John’s mind along with your mother’s because he will be the one to send that last object away before he changes and becomes one of the Children of Paradise. His dog will go with him when the time arrives. You are going to keep Samuel, your mother, Sally and Ken and the two dogs, Bethy and Buffalo safe when you take the trip inside that mountain and destroy two more of the devices. They will all be in danger and one will be hurt but will remain.” You must go and eat with the team and all will be taken in the dreams until your return to the beach.” Tamara knew her mission and after hugging the two girls she turned and walked out of the room to go back to the garden.

Alisha had been sent to the Dream hospital and had watched as Peter met his men and she had met her parents. The choices were given and her parents chose to go and be part of the Children of Paradise in another dimension. Peter had not made his choice and she knew that he would eventually but it would take more time for him. She had wished to be part of the folks of the haven and had felt as one with the woman named Kristyl. She found herself in the waiting room staring at the polished stones. As she touched each one the third one showed her Kristyl clearly as the vessel she would be a part of. She grasped that stone and found herself in the life force of her next being. She could hear her mother’s heart beat and read all her thoughts as her life force grew in her mother’s belly. All of the doors in her mind were opening as she grew and she knew that when she swam the canal she would be fully awakened. She saw Logan and how he would save her mother and father and the father of Luun and how he would be taken and returned to the Divine Creator. It all made her feel very happy as the warmth of love and the fluid surrounded her, she knew that her time in the fluid would not be as long as before and awaited the moment to jump into the canal.

17 TAMARA AND THE MOUNTAIN

The team had decided to stay at the haven for the night. Mary had told of the adventure with the whales and how she and Tamara had been taken to two of nuclear devices and how Tamara had made them disappear. She was so happy and held Tamara close as all the folks in the haven sat around the garden and talked. Mark and Maria had been tending the café’ and Jim had been tinkering in the garage up at the old junk yard. He had been working on a new cloaking device that would be sewn into a piece of clothing. Mark had completely built a small plane from parts and pieces he had retrieved from the old junk yard. Joanna had taken some of the folks that had come from the other places and restored the old farm house and barn where Philamena had been when Harriet had passed on. The place of her burial had grown a huge fruit tree and everyone was enjoying the peaches. Greybark had actually walked to his birth place and made friends with the tree. Janx and Philamena had a baby and enjoyed the orchards and the haven tremendously. When night time came everybody enjoyed a wonderful time together and Samuel and Mary went to their room and loved one another deeply. Ken and Sally sat up very late in the garden and talked deeply with one another and began to remember their past lives. The dogs all had romped around the haven out in the orchards and even met Greybark and had finally came back to the garden and lay down for a long awaited rest. Tamara met the two girls again and visited the chopper to make sure it was safe. Hava and Luun and her all visited the whales again and Hava showed her where to start her search to find the two devices in the mountain and under the sea. When the mourning time arrived and every one had eaten breakfast. The team said their farewells and stepped through the portal a few seconds later than when they had entered the garden.

The fog was still very thick outside but when Samuel moved to the pilot’s seat he stopped abruptly and looked at the very large bear that was looking into the front bubble straight at him. Mary moved to her seat and smiled at the bear. “He looks rather hungry don’t you think?” Samuel turned to her and then laughed. Bethy had moved to the spot in-between and was growling in a low tone. Sally was starting to get comfortable when she heard the growling and moved forward. She saw the bear and gasped. Tamara looked at the bear and knew that it was just curious. There was a small river coming off the mountains of the island and the salmon were running strong at this time. She spoke into the bears mind and told him and showed him were the best fishing would be. The bear gave one last glance at the chopper and the people inside while turning and heading off into the forest. Tamara walked up to Samuel’s seat as Bethy lay down and Sally made it back to the seat along the back of the cabin. Samuel spun the rotor and prepared to lift off when Tamara asked him if he knew of a mountain called Rainier. Samuel said he did. She asked if he would fly to it from here. He looked at her and said “I can but aren’t we supposed to be searching along the Cascadia Subduction zone for the nuclear devices?” Tamara told him that they would possibly return but the mountain must be searched at this time. Mary knew where Tamara was going with her request to search the mountain and said to Samuel “you know that we have taken two of those devices out up here so the mountain may be a very viable place and deadly at that for a device to have been planted. You suppose we should give it a try before we move to the south?” Samuel shook his head in the positive manner and asked everyone to prepare while he raised the chopper and swung it back to the south east. As they climbed up higher the distant snow covered mountain of Rainier could be seen. John sang a little ditty that he had heard when he was a small child. “We’re off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Everyone gave a chuckle and laughed at that as the chopper made its way toward the mountain.

Tamara knew she did not have much time in this corporeal body to open the doors in Mary’s mind as well as John’s. As soon as she sat down on the seat she began to communicate into Mary and John’s mind and showed them what doors to open and how to open them. Her crash course had put John’s mind into a tailspin as all was open for him to access. The ditty he spoke was something that came out because he was open to his childhood memories of a sudden. The doors that released the abilities he was going to use flooded his being and he fell into a restful sleep as the chopper made its way to the southeast. Mary already had doors open and her abilities were quite numerous so Tamara only had to open the doors that would allow her to make things go away in space and time without the use of the TMG. She also opened the door that gave her the ability to disappear and move through time and space herself and then showed her that she was becoming pregnant. She knew that she would be coming back as Mary’s child but she did not want to alarm her of what was coming. The teaching continued until the chopper was moving around the mountain. She had given directions to Samuel at that point. All was coming to its beginnings now as she waited for the right moment.

Mt. Rainier had been active for 50 or more years with steam blow offs and small quakes that would be in swarms at times and then go quiet. All the people that lived in the basins around the Puget Sound knew about the mountain and how unpredictable it could be but up to the present nothing serious enough had happened to make anyone evacuate. The mountain had heated up the lakes to its east and those finally had to be shut down to recreation. The North and western slopes and the top still looked like the pristine mountain that it had always been. There were some seismologists and Volcanologists that warned of a possible major eruption of the mountain as it had done in the past and the complete Puget Sound would be covered in huge mud flows and as it stood now the 3.5 million people that lived in and around Seattle and up and down the sound could be killed if the mountain blew its top. The scientists had been all over the mountain and even had shown lava flows in various places. Landslides had been recorded and the snow pack on the mountain had dwindled in the past 15 years to 1/3 of what it use to be due to steam blow offs and the internal heat of the mountain itself becoming hotter by the year. As Samuel fly across the sound they all could see the distant steam clouds rising from the top and even the ring of steam or low hanging clouds floating around the elevations below the snow line. Samuel asked Tamara where she would like to began a search. “If you can fly around to the eastern side that might be a good place to start a search and we can also see that other volcano from the east side.”

“What other volcano?” Samuel was surprised but in his mind thoughts he knew that the cascades were full of volcanos. Samuel had taken the chopper, at a low altitude around the North face of the mountain and as soon as he took it up to avoid another small peak they all saw the other volcano that Tamara spoke of. The peak was billowing smoke and dust in small amounts. Ken saw it and said “is that thing going to erupt?” Tamara was standing at the seat and looking out the front. “No I do not think so and this mountain we are flying around is not going to erupt either at this time but it does hold some very dangerous secrets.” Sally looked at Tamara and then at Ken. She had been staring at the mountain and looking at John at the same time. She could not understand how the man could sleep so soundly while they were flying and talking about all this activity going on. Bill was also sleeping next to him on the deck. She just shook her head and asked if they would be landing soon.

Samuel had thought about landing and looking around, he saw some lakes at the base of the mountain and saw a fairly huge lake more to the east. He asked Tamara if she had detected anything yet. She did not answer at first then said “no nothing yet.” She moved back to the seat and sat down as Samuel answered Sally and said “We could land down by that smaller lake for a short stay.” Mary had been looking at the lake and saw steam rising from it. “That lake looks hot and according to my instruments it is.” “Out beyond it is a flat area that looks ok if you want to set down there for a short space.” Samuel said “okay looks like we all could use a break and maybe someone could get John awake when we set down.” He looked at Mary and asked if she was okay. “You have been very quiet for awhile; do we have any activity down there that we need to avoid?” Mary turned and said “nothing at the moment but just a bit ago there were some blips on the screen that did not seem to make any sense at all.” Samuel asked what the blips looked like and Mary told him that there were two that appeared to be in the air above the hot lake and something else appeared to be coming from underground. “The two over the lake seemed to be moving; but the ones under ground were stationary at first then just disappeared. Everything is quiet now so I am not sure what they were.” “They could have been just a glitch in our instruments.”

Samuel set the chopper down close to the forest edge and left everything running. He told every one to stay inside for now while he asked Mary to replay the glitch thing if she could. She touched her keyboard and brought the blips back up. Samuel watched and then said “we may have company. I have seen that once before but it is a little different now. I do believe the Army has perfected their Dispance cloaking device and managed to mount them on the choppers. The first time I saw those blips was just after I had perfected the Jet belt and they began experimenting with the choppers.” “Could be that the underground blips may be where they are hiding a base of some kind.” Sally came forward and had also looked at the blip pattern. “I have to tell you that before I was moved to that Idaho base, I was stationed at a base in Oregon and they were doing experiments on something that made the vehicles disappear. Those things did not work all the time and people were killed or just disappeared when they first began the experiments.” “There was mention of an underground base somewhere in the Cascades but I never got the chance to find out exactly because I was transferred to Idaho after they caught me going over the records of the strange deaths and disappearances.” Ken had moved forward with Buffalo and they all seemed to be in thought when Samuel finally spoke and said “well I would say that we may have stumbled on their little secret base in the cascades and they seem to have the dispance cloaks and more than likely the old stealth gear that was used first. We do know that there could be at least two choppers flying around out here and we have no real idea how many more may be in that base.” “Can you bring up an approximate location where those two blips underground may be?” Mary typed in something and sure enough it showed the blips being located inside the mountain around 150 meters from the west side of the small lake. He turned to Sally and Ken and asked them to wake John. That is when he noticed that Tamara was no where to be seen. “Did anyone see Tamara leave?” No one answered and Ken shook John and told him to get awake. John would not wake up and neither would Bill. Samuel and Mary both were astonished that Tamara was gone but Mary had a feeling that the child had gone to the base. Samuel stood and moved back into the cabin to give the looming mission to the crew.

Tamara was standing in a tunnel that stretched both ways from her. There were dim red lights on the tunnel walls that provided enough light to see. The floor surface was smooth and as she looked closer it was some sort of hard surface. She had waited until the crew had moved forward in the cabin and were all watching Mary make the instruments give them information when she disappeared and shifted her self through space to this area. She already knew about the tunnel and where to look for the devices from reading the Colonels thoughts. He had all the information in his head about planting two of the devices under this mountain. One was set to blow and activate the old core so the mountain would erupt. The other one had been set to blow laterally toward the west which would set the chain reaction off, in conjunction with the other devices, for the Cascadia Subduction zone. The tunnel had been built to traverse to the west side of the mountain. Vehicles could actually be driven in the tunnel. The Emperors Army had actually drilled a long deeper tunnel into the core and planted the first device. It was resting on a mantle of solid basalt that had a large pocket of lava below. The pressure was extreme and the basalt was holding it back. There were small relief vents that blew off steam and sometimes lava would travel out but these were so small and tight that only the steam could escape mostly. That is why the mountain remained stable. The other device had been planted under the sound by a long narrow tunnel. She knew that when that device blew it would devastate the entire mountain range called the Olympic National Park and that entire piece of Washington State would slide into the Pacific Ocean. She was going to remove the core device first and then go to the one under the sound. She knew of the small base at the eastern entrance but that would have to wait until she cleared the devices. Before she left she finished opening the doors that John would need to remove the final device. She implanted the memories of the Colonel into his mind and spoke to Bill. The dog knew at that point what was coming for John and would be by his side when it all happened. She placed herself at the entrance of the core tunnel which was all she gathered from the Colonel and began to traverse down a long narrow corridor of solid rock.

Major Earl Sorrows was a short man in stature. He stood a full 5’5” and weighed around 150 lbs. His life had been one bad deal after another until he reached his present rank. His father had beaten him continuously and his mother never stood up for him as he was growing up. His anger built up so strong that when he turned 16 years of age he almost killed his father for beating him. He left that farm of miseries and never looked back. The next 2 years before he finally joined the army was full of bloody fights and criminal activities. All was forgiven when he was forced into the Army. He spent 10 years of hate and discontent from his fellow soldiers before he finally reached his present rank and status. He managed to get even with so many of his tormentors that they finally left him alone. When this mission came up and the General had put him in charge he was very pleased and the General was his kind of man in the way he thought. He had been given a regiment of 20 men to do the work of guarding this base or post. All the drilling of the tunnels and carving of the small post had been done prior to his appointment so he was just happy to be in charge of these men and he made damn sure that they followed his every order. He had been issued 2 choppers for recon outside the mountain and 4 Humvee’s to use inside the mountain and even go on excursions outside. He was planning to go on a much needed vacation to the Emperors city within the next month but he was waiting for his relief. He trusted no one under his command and had told the Emperor to send someone that could be trusted by him.

Corporal Harvey Skoogs saw the blip on his screen earlier but then it disappeared. He did not know quite what to think of it so he chalked it up to a glitch. The two choppers on patrol had called in and mentioned something about it but they too did not pursue it any further. Both choppers were coming in for recharge within the next 15 minutes and the skeleton crews would get a few hours break before they had to go back out. All the men here knew just what a real toady the Major was and most of them could not wait to get a transfer to some other place. Orders had come through around 3 weeks prior for most of them to prepare to leave at the command of a General Wagger. He knew that there was something in the works and the ones that had been told to prepare would probably be heading into a skirmish zone. Private Dunbeetle entered the operation room and told Harvey that the chopper pads were ready and the door was ready to be opened. Harvey gave his okay and prepared to tell the chopper pilots that they could begin an approach within 5 minutes and he would open the door when they came within 200 feet. “When you hit the hundred foot mark, do not forget to turn off that Cloaking device.” “Yes worry wart we know what can happen when we enter through the shield.” Captain Garthen looked over at his Lieutenant with a smile as he swung the chopper around and headed for the steep cliff face that hid the door. The other chopper followed suit and both moved toward the door.

On the ground next to the forest sat the chopper with Samuel, Mary and the rest of their team. They did not know that just across the lake and to the west a few hundred yards was the door into the base under the mountain. Samuel was very anxious at the moment because he was sure that Tamara had decided to look for those nuclear devices or had discovered them and went off to remove them without the team. He was very worried and Mary was also but she was quite busy scanning the sky and ground surface for any signs of the choppers and where that base may be accessed. Bethy was standing and intensely looking out the front windows of the chopper when she let out a bark. Samuel and Mary both jumped from the sudden sound and Sally said “what do you see girl?” Bethy was looking up toward the top of the window and her gaze followed at a downward ark out across the lake. Mary was getting short bursts of blips that moved across the lake when all of sudden two choppers materialized just on the other side of the lake at around 50 feet off the deck. They all watched as the mountain side opened and the choppers moved inside. They also saw an eerie green light engulf the choppers as they entered the opening. Once both birds were inside the mountain opening moved back and it looked like the side a rock cliff again. “Well looks like we found the entrance into that base or at least the one used by the choppers. I have to wonder if that is the only one or if they have another that could be easier to access?” Sally spoke and said “I could take Bethy and go explore around the lake and perhaps we could find something better. That Green arc that surrounded the choppers when they entered could be some sort of force shield which is why they had to decloak before entering. I remember seeing some manuals about that sort of thing. That was some highly top secret stuff back then and I almost got caught looking at it.” Samuel looked at her and said “okay but I need you and Ken to take your companions and do the search. You both know how to communicate by telepathy so use that exclusively and use the Dispance cloaks. Let’s hope that they have not come up with a way to detect you like we have although it is only intermittent.” “Mary will keep you informed if anything happens that you need to run from. Our mission here is to be as covert as possible for now. I think Tamara may be inside that mountain somewhere and we can’t jeopardize her position yet. So be careful and report back in one hour.” Sally and Ken both acknowledged and wrapped two extra belts around the dogs and activated them as they all jumped out of the chopper and moved off toward the other side of the lake.

John and Bill had remained in a deep sleep when Sally and Ken both left the chopper. Samuel had looked at both of them and spoke to Mary telepathically I do not know what came over those two but they do look comfortable. Mary spoke back I saw Tamara speaking with them earlier although I do not know what was being said. I am worried about her. Just disappearing like that with no word of what she might be up to. Yes me too and as I spoke before I think she is in that mountain and searching for one of the devices. We can only wait at this point and see what Sally and Ken might find. If they find an easier way in then we will have to enter and find Tamara.

As Tamara traversed the tunnel toward the core area it became steeper but was still easy to walk. She could feel the heat rising and was drenched in sweat as she kept moving. She reached for any thoughts of whoever may have been here prior but could find none. She finally levitated herself and moved smoothly downward through the tunnel. She did not know the tunnel so could not move her self to fast for fear of running into a wall. What seemed like forever because of the heat only took around 30 minutes in real time. The heat was becoming unbearable and the air was so heavy that breathing became harder. She finally saw an opening up ahead that was bigger than the tunnel and floated out into a very large cavern. She saw the device mounted on its wheel base about 50 yards in front of her and hurried to reach it. The black rock was hot and she feared that her clothes might catch fire at any moment and finally reached the device. She could see small streams of lava moving toward the out side perimeter of the black rock and did notice that it was humped toward the center, where ever that may be in this expanse of openness. The waves of heat and smoke kept her from seeing to far. The sweat dripping into her eyes also kept her from looking up too much. The device’s wheel base had been locked so it would not roll. She held out her hand and sent the entire thing away. The rock shook and she heard a rumbling and a small hole opened up about 80 feet from her and spewed red lava straight into the openness. She turned and flew back toward the small opening of the cave and kept moving upward. By the time she reached the entrance to the big tunnel her eyes were at least dryer but her clothes still felt hot. She stopped at the entrance and moved into the large tunnel slowly. She was invisible but she did not want to run into someone.

The tunnel was empty so she began to fly around the perimeter. As she was moving along, a memory came into her mind of a place with water dripping from the ceiling of a cave. She saw a concrete pedestal and one of the nuclear devices sitting on it. The water was running in small streams along the floor of the cave. The memory was very vivid. She saw three men standing around the device and then they fell forward and to the side. The memory vision was looking through someone’s eyes and then she saw the memory sight turn and move through a tunnel. At that point the vision/memory faded. She stopped abruptly and looked around the tunnel. She memorized what she saw and opened a portal to the place in the first memory. Stepping through, she splashed into the water and stopped. In front of her was the device resting on a concrete block that was raised above the water. The smell was very strong of damp earth. She glanced down at the floor of the cave and saw three decomposed bodies laying half buried in mud and water. The stench of death overwhelmed the damp earth smell. She held out her hand and sent the device to the same place as the first one and then sent the decomposing bodies to a place that she had seen while she was at the base where she and Logan went to gather the codes. She turned and reopened the portal to the main tunnel and stepped through.

On the lower level of the command center of the Area 51 base in Nevada, General Wagger was just returning back to his quarters after examining the major explosion. The three remaining drones had been sabotaged and blown to pieces. The car that was destroyed when it collided with the front drone had also been blown and thrown through the air 50 feet away. The remains of the civilian drone pilot were discovered or what was left of him. The General went berserk almost immediately and shot two men that were trying to put out the fires that were burning. The Hanger that housed his Leer jet had taken a large amount of the initial blast or so it seemed. It was found out later that one of the hellfire missiles had launched and shot across the runway into the front of the hanger blowing a large hole into it. The leer jet inside was missing a wing on one side and the cockpit was completely wasted and exposed to the open. Once the General saw this destruction he unloaded his pistol into the remains and started to scream. His emotional tirade made all the personnel move toward cover to keep from getting shot by this mad man. The Colonel had to approach with much caution and calm the man down and finally got him into the car and drove him back to the main building. Commander Sodimeyer had received some serious glass fragments when the windows shattered from the explosion and had been taken to the infirmary below. General Wagger had settled down and was unlocking his quarters when a very nasty smell made him aware that something could be wrong. He called two men from the guard’s quarters and had them open the door into his rooms. When the door opened, the men began to gag and upchuck from the stench. The General swore loudly and pushed the men into the room as he moved in him self. On the floor were three decomposing bodies. The guards turned immediately and ran past the General. He started to scream at the men and then stopped. As he looked at the bodies he saw something that he recognized. The screaming began in earnest for him. He left the room and had reloaded his pistol. As he ran down the corridor he was shooting wildly and screaming profusely. It took 5 men to tackle him once his weapon was empty. He was taken to the infirmary and buckled to a bed. A strong sedative was administered and finally the General passed out.

18 THE WONDER OF ALICE

The Humvee and the Bus approached the North gate slowly. Alice spoke into the four men’s minds and told them to be relaxed and act like the Emperor was their boss and this general that would meet them was just a peon. They must take total control of the situation and be patient. General Wagger had been informed of the “Super Soldier children that would be visiting and had been given their itinerary. He had other plans and it did not include any of these Brats or the men that were escorting them. He had always had his doubts about the operation up in Idaho and when he was told that the base had been destroyed but the remaining soldiers that were the main experiments had escaped he became even more suspicious. He would play along with this charade because the puke in Denver wanted him to for now. He had already decided to kill these freaks, as he thought of them, before the week was out and he thought it would be fitting to do it with the poisons he was loading on the planes. The other men that were escorting them would also be killed with all the rest when the time was right which he figured to be around 5 to 7 days from now. He and the Colonel drove the distance from the main base to meet the children and their team at the North gate to get them situated in the barracks located there.

The night before had changed the Generals plans. The little weasel of a civilian drone pilot had destroyed his remaining drones and the Generals plans for escaping. His leer jet had been destroyed thus his dreams had been shattered. The only thing good about the whole situation was the death of the pipsqueak. Once he was awake in the infirmary the Colonel had come and took him directly out of the bunker to come and meet these freaks. He did not see any of the other men and it was fortunate for them because he would have shot them for doing what they did to him the night before. He did not discuss his new plans with the colonel. The time he was awake in the infirmary was spent in complete thought of his next move to escape. When the colonel came to get him, he played along well enough. He was going to kill this man as soon as he was able to get the other codes for the nukes. The jet was a sorrowful blow but he had another mode of transportation stashed in another hanger and he knew how to fly it. The chopper was fully charged and stayed that way. He had one other that would go with him and he was the only guard of the chopper at the moment. Sure he suffered a set back but it only served to strengthen his reserve to destroy the emperor and these other idiots as he set himself up to be the king of the world. Colonel Saulinsky brought the Humvee to a stop and both men watched the guard talking with the men in the Humvee that was stopped in front of the bus.

The guard walked around the front of the Humvee and asked for papers. Keegan handed the paperwork to Frank who handed it to the guard who looked at it nonchalantly. “Well Captain looks as if all is in order. I am told to wait for the General to arrive before I can let you proceed.” “Okay sergeant we will be sure to let the Emperor know how well you have done your job.” “Yes sir, thank you sir.” As he spoke a vehicle pulled up and the sergeant said “here is the general now.” Brian Saulinsky had been feeding information about the Generals plans in small amounts when he could to Major Wheeler. He had to be extra secret and inconspicuous as the General became more and more suspicious and psychopathic as the days went by. The man had shot two more soldiers after the incident with the drones. He had heard about these children but did not know what they had been trained to do. As he and the General climbed out of their Humvee he noticed two men and a very small child exit their vehicle.

Montgomery Wagger was in one of his famous foul moods. Today it was double foul and had become worse by the day since the civilian drone pilot had destroyed the leer jet and the remaining drones. When he was told that he would have to entertain this bus load of freaks, because the Emperor ordered him to do so, he had went berserk and almost shot some more of the idiots that worked on the base. The Colonel was able to calm him and keep the personnel from being killed by him. As he moved from the Humvee he stopped abruptly and stared at the two men and the very small child. The little child was dressed in army fatigues and actually had a generals Star on the epilates of the uniform. The two men, one a Captain and the other a lieutenant stood to her sides almost at attention. He almost cracked up laughing but caught himself quickly. He only had one star and it had taken him most of his career to get that and here was a very small child that appeared to be the same rank as he was. His anger began to rise like bile from his stomach and catch in his throat as he and the colonel walked toward the two men and little girl.

Approaching the personnel the General stopped about 5 feet away and watched the two men salute him. The child did not salute but looked at him with a smirk on her face. He saluted back and while looking at the child asked her what the meaning of the visit was. He did know why they were there but decided to be as questionable as possible. Keegan started to speak but Alice asked him to let her control the situations in their mind speak. “General Wagger I believe you know full well why we are here and you also know what we will be doing. Have I made myself perfectly clear enough for your ignorance to be answered?” Wagger almost jumped on this little insolent child to crush her. He could feel his muscles tense as he choked down the swear words. “Yes General, I am perfectly aware of who you are and why you are here. I was just being cautious.” “As you know we cannot be too lax with our security these days I apologize for my rudeness.” “May I ask how old you are?” Alice had to keep her snickering from erupting as she answered the man. “Well general my age is of no concern to you but my rank is. I am a Major General as of 4 days ago and you are still a Brigadier general if I am not mistaken. I just have not had time to add the additional star to my uniform.”

General Wagger almost puked when he heard this little witch of a child tell him that she was of higher rank. The way she talked to him made the bile rise even more violently and his urge to choke the life from this bastardized version of a human being began to overwhelm his motor activity. He moved forward toward the child with the intent to do just that when his movement was frozen. His eyes were looking straight ahead and what he saw made his stomach churn. The little girl was looking into his eyes and causing him to see things that he wished to forget. All the deaths of the men he had killed over the years flooded his mind. He saw the death of his wife when he had strangled her because she was going to expose his ill deeds. He saw the death of the children he had killed in a small village during a skirmish in Mexico. All of his filthy deeds came before his eyes as he gazed into this little child’s eyes. Alice moved away from the monster and floated back to the ground between Keegan and Isaac. The General fell forward and hit the road face first. Colonel Saulinsky motioned for the two men in the vehicle to retrieve him. They both picked him up and placed him in the Humvee and the Colonel began to tell the little girl and the two men to follow him and he would show them where they would stay.

When the general started to move forward, Keegan and Isaac watched in amazement as Alice levitated and moved to the front of the man. They saw him frozen in place and they could not move either at that point. It was as if time had stopped and all became frozen. They could still see and hear but nothing moved until Alice floated back and stood between them. All the children on the bus stopped and entered the universe with Alice. They all became one entity and stared into this mans face in front of them. This man was all evil and they saw what he had done in his life. The man was tortured and they saw what he intended to do in the near future. When Alice moved back they all came back and sat in the bus waiting. They saw Keegan and Isaac and Alice move back to the Humvee and the two men pick the general up and place him into their vehicle. The Humvee’s moved out and Montgomery shifted the bus and followed.

Brian had watched in horror as the General started to move forward toward the little girl. He had thought the crazy man was going to pull his gun and start shooting when the child said what she did. As the man moved forward everything stopped and he watched the child levitate from the ground to hover in front of the general. He saw her stop with her face mere inches in front of the generals and it seemed like the next thing he saw was her standing between the two men that had come with her. He saw the general fall forward and hit the road surface and then he was motioning for Corporal Tomas and Private Walsh to pick the man up and place him in the Humvee. The next thing he remembered was exiting the Humvee and escorting the men and children to the barracks where they would be staying. After returning to the main base he told the two men to take the general down to the infirmary. Lying on his bed in his quarters he tried to remember what had happened but his memory eluded him shortly before falling into a deep sleep.

Sammy Whitefeather and Malcolm Ross were looking through their scopes and watching the gate and the base when the Humvee and bus drove up and stopped at the guard station. They watched the guard ask the driver of the Humvee for something and then saw the papers. Shortly after that exchange both men saw a Humvee drive up on the inside of the base. They watched two top brass men get out and then saw two men get out of the Humvee at the gate. Sammy immediately recognized Keegan and then Isaac. Malcolm quietly asked who the little soldier was as Keegan and Isaac moved forward with the child between them. Sammy said he did not know. Malcolm scoped the bus out and said “seems to be a bus load of children but they are dressed in uniforms.” He looked at Sammy and then back at the bus. Sammy said “I think that is the bus load of children that we were told to meet. That is what Sergeant Thomson and the others were supposed to do.” Sammy looked back into his scope and both men saw the little child float up and hover in front of the high top brass man. All the other people were not moving and the scene was eerie. As they watched, the child moved back to her original position as they could plainly see that she was a small girl and the man she had floated to fell over face first on the road surface. “Oh man that has to hurt. Did you see that child levitate?” “Yes that is amazing. I have heard about some children that can do some wondrous things. You don’t suppose that this bus may be those children?”
