The elevator door on the second basement floor opened just as Alice and Justin disappeared through the very blank door with a sign above it stating that it was a utility closet. Herman Trovsky was the first to step out while Hedda and her 5 additional secret service agents followed. “We have to traverse the corridor to reach the elevator that goes to the parking garage.” Herman told them as he began to walk the corridor. “I would suggest some of you take the stairs because if there are enemy soldiers down there they will be guarding the elevator.” What about the stairwell, Mr. Trovsky?” “Well now Agent Blackwell, we have the capability to shut down the alarm systems for both the elevator and the stairs so whoever is down there will not know we are coming until those doors open. I can even shut down the floor gage on the elevator so surprise is on our side. I would suggest you all are ready to empty your weapons when those doors open and as for the stairs. You crawl down there and wait for the elevator to open and the shooting to start which should draw any attention away from the stairs.” The group of 7 minions reached the elevator and stairwell that would take them to the parking garage. Herman opened the panel on the wall that would allow him to operate the doors and alarms and used the keys and artificial eye to set everything in motion. He knew about the secret stair to the secret room but was not going to tell any of the agents. The two agents that knew about the room and stairs were dead now. That particular room held all the triggers for the gas and other nasty things he could use to take out the intruders if they existed. He was going to get all the agents on their way and go take the secret stairs.

Justin reached the parking structure and told the teams that someone was coming down from the main palace. Jacks first response was to station his men at the elevators and stairs. Tamara and Janice both knew this would not turn out very well. Tamara asked where Alice was and Justin told her that she went up to the next floor to check it out. She talked with Janice and then told Jack and Keegan to gather the men and take what they could carry and go up the secret stairs. They needed to get up to the 1st basement floor at least and get into a good defense position. The teams went into action swiftly and began to move up the stairs. Justin led the way and they climbed the stairs. Both teams had passed the lower basement landing well before Herman unlocked the secret door and entered the stairwell. He was going to set up the chemical gas to flood the parking garage. Xisherma Sqie’/Herman Trovsky had told Xerkshaz Shee’ to take the stairs and hang back. The other pod compatriots were expendable. Xishum Stra’ had told him that he and Shee’’ needed to eliminate the entire enemy and the agents and seal the garage and both basement floors. The elimination of the Gyyuuummphers was to begin on this Xzame. There would be an elimination of pod compatriot that could not be helped but the outcome would allow the Xzanturs to be free from the worms for the first time in millennia. They could then conquer the human race and from this planet could expand into this galaxy and begin to conquer and create their new empire.

Herman/Sqie’ entered the secret room and knew something was wrong. He moved to the one way windows and noticed the vehicles but no life forms. As he scanned the room he began to turn on the gas system but something was screaming in his mind about the absence of humans and the Emperors minions. He turned on the cameras and began to scope the entire garage. There were no life signs and the doors that sealed off the tunnels from the external areas were wide open. His mind was spinning with questions when the elevator doors opened and the agents began spraying bullets into the empty space. He watched in amazement as the bullets ricocheted off the empty vehicles and then the stairwell door opened and more firing commenced. It was all surreal as he reached down to release the gas. He failed to see the open door to the secret room into the parking garage and one of the ricocheting bullets caught his human body in the chest which caused him to fall against the button to release the gas. He tried to abandon the human but it was too late and the Gyyuuummphers in his brain also tried to abandon his brain. Both vehicles exploded in a fiery blast that mixed with the gas and caused a nastier conflagration. The human body Sqie’ was in was set on fire and the gas engulfed him. The Gyyuuummphers screeched through his mouth and the human as they all became non existent. The agents in the elevator were engulfed and died a horrible death as the agents in the stairwell were burned and gassed to death. Xerkshaz Shee’ had stayed almost a flight of steps up but caught the gas as it flamed upward through the opening. She turned and struggled to climb the stairs to get away but the gas caused the skin of the human to melt away. She tried to escape the human carcass and fell away at the last moment. She lay on the stairs, crumpled and the worm crawled from her ear but was consumed with the fiery gas as it flamed its way upward in the stairwell

The first basement directly under the ground floor of the palace was very eerie when Alice stepped through the non-descript door. There was no one in sight in the corridor but she could hear voices coming from the far end of the corridor or so she assumed. She knew the teams would be coming up the secret stairs very soon so she needed to make sure this floor was clear or as clear as could be. She could handle a few and send them to a distant place for now. It was the alien symbiotics that gave her the willies because they had figured out how to detect the awakened humans. She was not sure what they could do but the thought of one of them invading her brain and gaining control did not bode well in any sense of the word. When she was very little she had been covered by worms that had bit her. This traumatic experience had been buried deep within her being and she still had not been able to have a healing experience from that trauma. The invasion of the symbiotics had caused her to be on edge and this was cause for concern to her because she could become vulnerable to being invaded. As she thought about this she levitated and floated the corridor toward the voices.

Justin made his way up the stairs ahead of the teams. He told Tamara and Janice that Alice would need help and left quickly. He also told them that they needed to hurry up the stairs because there was an alien that would be coming down from the floor above soon. When Justin entered the corridor, he remained invisible and could hear the voices coming from somewhere in the corridor. He knew that Alice was already close to those voices and he hurried to meet up with her. He was worried for her because he knew about her early mental and physical experience with worms. He had witnessed her agitation with the symbiotics that lived inside the Xzanturs and she had telepathically talked with him about worms and how they gave her the creeps. She had told him how she could be galvanized if confronted directly by the symbiotics. So far she had been able to send the host body that held the symbiotic to a place that destroyed both the host and the symbiotic. As he flew down the corridor he knew that if one of these worms succeeded in invading Alice and controlling her being it would not be good for the human race. These alien beings were able to learn very quickly and could create a major defense against the Haven folk and others that were transcending into the new open minded humans.

The elevator door stood open at the end of the corridor and to the left side was an opening into a large room. Justin stopped and looked at the small group of humans that surrounded Alice. They all seemed to be talking to each other and at Alice. He could see that she was frozen and visible. The humans, that Justin knew were inhabited by the aliens seemed to be very leery as they pressed closer to Alice. He knew that they knew that she could make them all go away with just a touch. They did not seem to know that she could send them away by just thinking. However there seemed to be something wrong with her and the circle of humans. He wanted to move into the room and make these aliens go away. He started to move when one of the humans turned and looked straight at him and started to screech with his finger pointed directly at him. Justin watched as all the humans turned toward him and the fish aliens began to step out of the human bodies. The loud bang and the jolt to his body took him by surprise. As he fell backwards, he watched in a surrealistic scene as the humans began to shoot the fish aliens.

A short time earlier, Alice had reached the same opening into the room and watched the 6 humans as they stood around talking about the elimination of the symbiotic race of worms. Alice could see the Xzanturs clearly inside the human bodies and wondered at the clear insurrection talk screeching from these beings. She knew that the worms lived in the Xzanturs brains but apparently the aquatics could somehow separate themselves from the worms. This confirmed her suspicions that the aquatics were not as controlled as the humans would be when a worm entered them directly. She was still invisible but sensed an exposure feeling while standing in the corridor and watching these three part beings discuss the destruction of one of them. One of the humans did not seem to be participating with the others and turned directly toward her. She felt a tingling in her mind and became frozen with fear. Her mind was filled with worms crawling on her and entering her mouth and ears. She became visible and slowly walked into the room. The one human that appeared to be forcing the mental nightmare on her began to move closer as the others stopped screeching and formed a circle around her. None of them dared to approach within touching distance to her, yet she could not use her mind to make the one stop its continuous invasion of pure physical, as she thought, onslaught of worms covering her body. She watched in abject fear as these beings began to close the circle around her. She finally felt the presence of love from Justin and tried to call out to him in the mind when the world around her turned into a fire storm. She felt a great pain from Justin and then everything became quiet.

Ian had stepped into time just as the bullet entered Justin’s chest and caught the boy as he fell backward. Justin looked at the bright light as he left his corporeal body to enter back into the no-time. Ian laid the empty body down and saw the aquatics die in a firestorm of bullets. He stood up and walked toward the humans that were doing the shooting and began to make them disappear to places where the corporeal bodies would disintegrate and the worm aliens that controlled them became non-existent. The one human that was completely controlled by the worm lost its mind control over Alice and turned its mind toward the taller child that had just entered the room and made all his herd cells disappear. The blank wall his mind came up against made him shrink back with fear. The last thing he ever knew was the face of a pure light being as he fell completely apart into single incoherent cells. The human body that he had inhabited and had fed on the pineal gland crumpled to the floor and lay inert. Ian could see that the spirit and soul of the corporeal body were non-existent and turned to Alice, she had moved to the body of Justin. She knew that the spirit and soul were no longer in the corporeal body but she mourned for him anyway. Ian could feel the loss and sorrow emanating from her. She was on the verge of blaming herself for Justin’s demise so Ian came to her and took her into the no-time and dream healing place. She stood next to a bed and looked at Justin. He opened his eyes and smiled. I see that you are alright, I am very glad. I was quite worried that you would be inhabited by one of those worm things. Alice smiled and started to sit down when Justin hopped from the bed and took her hand. Come, you must see something and there is a healing that you need to undertake. Alice began to laugh as her and Justin began to skip through the hallways and out into a meadow. Justin told her that he was going to go back and would be the same age as when he left but he had to go through the haven first. Alice understood all these things and now she could see much more clearly. She and Justin spent a long time together and she finally confronted the fears she had locked away as a baby in another time. Ian finally came to her and told her it was the moment for her to go back. She told Justin that she would look for him and turned just as Tamara and Janice along with the other team members walked into the big room.

Tamara hurried to Ian and hugged him. Janice could see the bright light emanating from this tall young man, it made her feel very safe and secure. The other team members gathered into the room and looked at the carnage of the fish aliens. Jack and Keegan looked at Alice and Ian both with questions flowing from their being. Ian began to speak. “There is an insurrection and genocidal movement between the Xzanturs and the Gyyuuummphers-Ichees species. The Xzanturs were inhabited by the Gyyuuummphers-Ichees many thousands of years ago when the worm species escaped from their alternate Universe that they managed to destroy.” The team had heard some information about these invaders but there were many blank spots as to who these aliens really were and where they had come from. They knew that the worms lived in the fish aliens symbiotically and assumed that the worms were in control. “You all may have been told that the Gyyuuummphers actually controlled the Xzanturs but that is not the truth. The worms, as they have become to be known as could never control the Xzanturs like they can with us humans. The Xzanturs allowed the worms to live in their brains symbiotically because the worms had the same goals or imperial ideas as the Xzanturs and actually traded their superior knowledge for a safe place to live. Be that as it may, the relationship was always filled with jealousy and wants to control completely. The Gyyuuummphers managed to destroy an entire universe and see this universe as becoming their complete slaver system. They do learn at extraordinary speeds and have bided their time which does not seem to be an issue with their long lives. They waited while the Xzanturs expanded and waged war on their quadrant and even tried to control another species that was similar to the human race.”

Ian could see that telling the entire story of these aliens would take too long at this time. He decided to give them enough to fight with for now because the Palace had become infested with both aliens and the war had become quite explosive within and without. “The Xzanturs’s system has been destroyed and now they have arrived here to take over. There is one ship in a very distant orbit from earth and there were many more on their way but that has changed due to a community of space faring civilizations. As it is known now, the Gyyuuummphers have plotted to leave the Xzanturs for a much better species that they can be compatible with and fully control.’ “The human race has presented that opportunity to them and so they are in the process of destroying the Xzanturs as they move into the humans solely by themselves. The Xzanturs have decided to also inhabit the humans solely independent from the worms and so they are at war with each other as well as with the humans on this planet.” Janice asked if there were any other tell tale signs they could utilize to recognize the inhabited humans and by which alien. Ian told the teams that as for now the one sign they had of the Xzanturs being inside a human was the dark aura and of course the voice dissonance. “The Gyyuuummphers are almost undetectable until you come within a certain distance to the human they have taken control of. It is imperative that none of you become inhabited by these worm aliens. They are highly intelligent and have discovered how to detect any of you within a certain distance. It is not know yet just how far that distance is and if they have extended it by now. It is your pineal gland they want and they will feed on that and your brains for a very long time. It is a concerned thought that these aliens seek to replace the human souls and spirits with their own existence of herd mentality as worms. It has been discovered that once they inhabit a human directly this process happens quite rapidly and the human is lost and cannot be saved or retrieved once the worm is removed.”

Ian looked at the two teams and knew that Tamara, Alice and Janice were almost fully open minded, as for the team members, some of them had been given keys to open doors in their minds but for now they were limited. The upper floors of the Palace had become infested with both aliens and there was fighting going on now as these two species fought to gain control. The military minions that surrounded the palace in all three or four lines of defense had also become infested but they were fighting the patriots also so the mass conflagration was growing. He was needed in many places now as well as the other children of the bus and the folks of the haven. It seemed that there had been much more of these aliens on that one ship and they had been dispersed over the world in mass. A lot of folks are wondering just what may happen if more of those ships get through and are able to disperse more of these aliens. Ian was on his way to find others and see if this war had broken out on those ships. The Gyyuuummphers did not have humans to live in on the ships so he could not be sure what was happening as they traveled through the stars. “I am needed elsewhere for now so you will have to get through as best you can. Your main goal is to stop the Emperor. He has been inhabited by the Xzanturs who carry the Gyyuuummphers. He may have already lost one but it is sure that he will be very dangerous with either one controlling him, as his own mind was full of very bad and devious ways.” Ian looked at Tamara, Alice and Janice, nodded once and disappeared.

The teams stood in the corridor in front of the elevator and the stairway door that led to the 1st floor above them. The had explored the entire 1st basement floor for another way into the palace above but came up with zero as for stairs or elevator. The consensus was not to take either one of these because it would be or could be like walking into a meat grinder, knowing that the worms could detect them very easily now. They all could be invisible with the use of the dispance cloaks but that would be useless against the worms. They figured they might have a 50/50 chance to get out of either one of the stairs or elevator as long as one of the worm aliens wasn’t in a human or even still in one of the Xzanturs. That chance came down to how it used to be prior to this damn war the worms and fish had started between one another. Buck sergeant Carrie Newman and Agent Dan Killard walked up the corridor to the team and stopped. Newman asked if anyone had found another way to get to the floor above but it was clear that no had as of yet. “Dan and I think we might have found a way that will get us on that floor without being murdered in this elevator or those stairs.”

Jack and Keegan both turned and said “Sergeant Newman, if you got a way, lets hear it, we are running out of time.” “Okay then, Dan and I checked out the duct system and think we may be able to get above through the duct work and come out through a grill. We will have to do a bit of exploring but we are pretty sure we can do that. It might be tight but it seems to be the only way at this point. Tamara and Alice both stepped forward and volunteered to do the exploring. They figured they were the smallest and could move quicker to find the shortest way and best exit. Carrie and Dan led them all to the easiest place to enter the ducts and they searched around and actually found a ladder that could be placed under the service opening. Tamara and Alice just floated up and entered. The ladder was placed but they all seemed to have the jet belts with the dispance cloaks. They decided to use the ladder anyway. They had to leave some of their gear behind but made sure they had the essentials that would be needed to fight and survive; the rest of it was stored in a utility closet.

Tamara and Alice had floated inside the duct system until they began to hear voices and explored what was in the rooms above. They found an empty room with a grill that could be gotten through and marked it. They managed to find two other empty rooms with large enough grills and created a holographic map. It was less than an hour later that the teams had split up into equal groups and stood in the empty rooms. Tamara and Alice had found some surveillance camera’s and disabled them to appear still in operation. One room was a utility closet and communication was by telepathy now that they were out of the basements. They were in the Palace and the next plan was to stealthily make their way to the Emperor’s main office on the 5th floor. Jack and Keegan knew that they would not be able to get through this labyrinth without some major distraction so Alice made the choice to get beyond the palace and defense lines to give information to the artillery commanders to begin shooting into the inner lines. They were already smacking into the outer rectangle defenses. This would be the final assault on this creepy dictator’s world and the aliens that controlled him.
