21 MISFITS AND ALIENS
The chopper rested in a small meadow on the side of one of the hills to the North of the Archuleta Mesa. Jimmy was looking out the side window and could barely see the small station that remained of the base. He remembered the uproar when the Army decided to downsize the base and turn it into a small station. He was not sure how many men and or women might be stationed there now but it was a cinch that it could be no more than 10 if that. He also knew that there were three buildings left that consisted of a barracks, a storage/garage building and an operations building. Michael asked him if he and Isaac would scout the station. Ian wanted to go with them so Michael told him that he could but he would have to do what Jimmy and Isaac told him. Ian acknowledged and they all prepared to leave the chopper. Michael had landed so the hatch was facing toward the hill side. The two men turned on the Dispance cloak while Ian pretended to but just disappeared. They all climbed out and moved around the chopper and down the hill toward the station.
The Archuleta Mesa was a large sloping rock or so it seemed. The dirt was semi red but the rock looked like basalt and there were large ruts of wash from the rains that frequented the area. The two men and boy reached the bottom of the hill. Jimmy spoke in the mind and said that station is further than I remember from this hill, looks like we are going to have to fly there from here.
Isaac acknowledged and the two men activated the jet belts and rose off the ground. Ian just levitated him self and they all moved off across the mesa. Jimmy had been told that animals could see through the Dispance cloak so he was scoping the station as they approached and did not see any dogs. He suspected that there would not be any due to the downsizing and making this a place of punishment. He also suspected that the army would just as soon forget about this place except for what was buried underground. The wars that happened here in the previous century had left a very bitter taste in the military hemisphere. The Aliens had taken many men and did unspeakable things to them before the giant steel doors shut the place off. The sighting of UFO’s ceased to happen in the early 2000’s and the entire place fell out of view and off the map for conspiracy theorists. The Army lost a foothold here and the nuclear bombs or whatever they had stored below became lost also the wars caused the loss of everything else down below. He remembered his stint of duty here and how absolutely boring it was other than the strange disappearances of men and other weird things that happened. He was having all these thoughts as they approached the fence line and flew over. He saw the three buildings that he remembered but there was one other small structure that he did not remember seeing. He spoke in the mind to Isaac and Ian and told them to move around and see if any personnel were visible. The place looked almost deserted but he could hear some music coming from the barracks building. He signaled Isaac to move to that building while he moved to the operations building and signaled for Ian to check out the small structure. We’ll all meet at the storage/garage building after gathering info from the other buildings.
In the chopper Michael was talking to Susanna, Theresa and Daniel. “Daniel, you and Theresa can go over that ridge” as he pointed to the ridge to the north of them, and search for any caves or entrances into the underground. They may be quite hard to spot but you will know them when you see. At some point in the past that area was suspected to be a place for those flying saucers to come from.” Theresa spoke up and said “I remember something about all that hoopla but there wasn’t much to hear about, just something about UFO’s and how the folks of Dulce would see them all around the area at certain times.” “If I recall, this area and down south near a place called Roswell were very well known places for tourists and UFO hunters and this stuff was written into magazines.” Daniel looked at the ridge and said “Well I can tell you that the war under ground here was real and a whole lot of men and women were killed and prior to that occurrence something or someone was experimenting on humans. I do know that the Army finally closed off the underground and abandoned this site or so we were all told.” Susanna was looking at her instruments and then glancing out the side at the mesa below. She had listened to the conversation and watched something odd on her monitors. “Well I would say that there is some sort of activity below ground on that mesa. I can’t identify what it may be but there is movement and seismic disturbance happening.” “I am registering a large amount of heat signatures and some very odd signals that I have never seen before.” She flipped the monitor around so Michael could see and Daniel and Theresa both moved up to look at the monitor. Theresa stared for a moment at one of the signals or blips that seemed to be emanating strange colors and said “I have seen that before” and then said Oh my! “That is what Maria and Mark showed us in their minds when they came back from that mission with Lionhawk and Shadowself.” They had such vivid thoughts of that mission and the girls helped them to overcome some very bad impressions. I remember that some of us had to be there to help and I am sure those signals were in their minds.” Susanna gasped and turned to Theresa, “Oh my, is right, I remember now, those were the radiant signals from the gate to that other dimension those fire creatures came from.” You don’t suppose that there could be more of those things invading us?” Theresa said “no not those particular Aliens because that gate was closed and there were not any more. This could be from other places or dimensions though and with all the talk about aliens under the old base that was here it would make sense.”
Jimmy stood outside a small window, located on the east side of the operations building. He was still cloaked and was watching the two men sitting at the computer stations. Both men were kicked back in a very relaxed mode and drinking coffee while reading magazines. He could barely see the monitors but from what he could see they showed large metal doors with the standard radiation warning signs. He wanted to get a closer look at those monitors because he remembered that the doors had been sealed with welding materials when he was stationed there. The welding had been done at some time prior to his knowing but when he was there they had to reseal them because something had been slowly cutting through. Someone had told him that the station had been converted to full time monitoring of the large doors and it was very important that nothing cause them to fail. He also knew that the caves to the north had been destroyed and sealed due to the escape of some of the aliens and the fact that Alien ships were using them for reconnaissance and gathering missions on the humans. He did not know of any other openings into that hellish underground but all the time he spent in this place had given him the creeps and he still had nightmares of being taken.
Isaac dropped down next to a window along the side of the barracks building. He had heard the old rock and roll music sounds from a few open windows and as he looked in he saw two people dancing and 4 more sitting around a table. The talk appeared to be lively so he moved to the front door and looked through the small windows. No one was looking his way so he pushed the door partly open and squeezed into the anti room. The words of the music were saying “Faster than the speed of Life” and the beat was catchy. https://youtu.be/7Jpb67dWc-M
He watched the man and woman dance around and they looked like they were having a good time. The three men and one woman sitting down were tapping on the table and moving in motion as they talked. The music was loud enough to drown out their conversation so he could not make out what they were discussing but he could tell that the woman was becoming agitated as they talked. When he moved closer to hear what was being talked about, he noticed that all three of them had tattoos on their arms. The two dancing also had tattoos on parts of their bodies. He knew from some history that he had studied a few years prior that people used to burn pictures into their skin and it seemed to be more prevalent with people in the military. He had heard that the practice had come back but was almost forbidden for most military people. He also knew that any personnel caught doing the practice were either arrested or shipped to some place that was a hell hole and was isolated from civilization. Apparently this was one of those places and these people were considered Misfits.
As he approached the table to get closer, the woman stood up very quickly, knocking over her chair and told one of the men to shut up. “This ain’t no joke you jerk, I tell you that those two men were taken by whatever it is in the caverns below.” “Don’t even try to tell me that they ran off in the night and deserted.” “Earl wasn’t the type to go running off in the middle of the night and Benny was really afraid of something and tried to tell Tim that he had seen something the night before Earl went missing. He said that something came from that little building that covers the steel doors.” “I tell you that something has figured out how to breach that underground hell and they are using that building to get up here and this ain’t the first time that people have gone missing up here.” Hank spoke calmly and told Hanna to settle down. The music had stopped and the two people that were dancing came over to hear the commotion. The other woman moved close to the one called Hanna and took her hand while she moved away from the table. Hank kept talking and told Cathy to settle her down. “We all know that something is moving around up here and with two of us gone within the last two weeks it has become an issue to watch our backs closer.”
