3 ERYNE AND THE HAVEN
As they pulled into the refueling station they were greeted by a man in his mid-forties, long hair and mild beard. Mark rolled down the window, the man said "My daughter said some people like you would be arriving soon, you guys better pull around back-- by the way my name is Will-I-AM but call me Bill. He tilted his hat by way of greeting and stepped back to survey the car. This is a pretty fine vintage Subaru you got, looks like it has been restored to originality. As Bill was talking he turned and waved to them to follow him. Mark slipped the car into drive and inched forward following Bill very slowly. Maria turned and asked Eve if this seemed alright, she said "I have an eerie feeling of a sudden". Eve looked out the front window at Bill walking around the corner of the station and said, "follow him for now, we must hide the car again but be alert". I want to meet this mans daughter; remember he said that she told him to be on the look out for people like us because we would be arriving soon. As they came around the building Mark could see another building in the back and a garage door was opening up. Bill waved them in. Christine suddenly grabbed the front seat and said, "Look out!" And with that Mark slammed on the brakes. "OMG" he silently uttered to himself.
It was unlike anything he had ever seen before in his life. They all sat in the car in stunned silence.
It appeared as if they were driving into a void as they inched closer to the garage. "Don't worry” said Bill, “just keep driving, I will explain everything later." He kept waving them in. "Its ok, Mark, keep going" said Eve. As they fully passed through this 'void' they entered a tunnel and kept driving along slowly. When they reached the end of the tunnel it opened up into a very large space. Mark turned off the car. "What is this place?" They all thought at once. Bill was there now as well, but he told them he had to go run the shop until close and introduced them to his wife Carolyne. "She will explain everything to you folks."
Eve scanned the place with her eyes, there appeared to be an artificial light coming from somewhere, but it felt so much like the sun. She saw a few other people in the distance, going about what appeared to be daily life for them. She could even hear water running. She saw a girl about her age skipping towards them. She ran to Eve first and gave her a big hug, "Hava!" she said.
Then memories flooded Eve's mind, how had she forgotten all of those lives they had spent together, and in this life all of the times they had played together in the dream world. It was as if her sub conscious had purposely blocked it all out, for this one grand moment to have it all flood back. "Luun," she whispered "it is so good to be here with you again. What are you called in this life?" "Eryne," she stated.
While Evelyne and Eryne locked eyes and continued to remember all they had been through together, Carolyne started explaining everything to the rest. "You see my husband used to work on top secret projects for the military, it was when he was working on a project that he realized would be the final nail of the coffin for a free humanity that he had a great awakening. He knew it wouldn't be easy for him to get out, and he also didn't want the project to stay in their hands either. He began to slowly persuade his coworkers, by informing them of this projects true intent. On his off time he started to construct this place, and create a second identity for him and me. He had all but one of the engineers of this project on board with his plan, to destroy the work and then go into hiding, all for the best interest of humanity. I'd rather not say what happened to the one who disagreed. But the rest of them, and if they had family are all here now. We may appear idle at first sight, but I assure you great things are happening down here. You will be quite pleased to see the accomplishments made in the last 8 years, that will one day soon help with a triggering point to awaken humanity and create a free and prosperous world."
