16. WHEN EMPERORS AND ALIENS FALL THE BEGINNING TO AN END.

Gyymmmphhere-Ichee sat in the turret of the patrol car as they moved onto the road that would lead them to the place of residence where the engineer lived. He had received a thought communique from Gyyyumphh-Iches and his protocell Gyumper-sciches that they had killed the engineer and his companion but had not found the secret plans nor the children of the engineer. They had communicated that they were on their way back and then all communication went dark. The elimination of the Xzanturs species, the previous hosts had ramped up as the Gyyuuummphers-Ichees collective began to inhabit the humans on a greater scale. Gummmmphhhh-Ichee the supreme source on the ship was using a faction of the Xzanturs to keep it quiet about the takeover on the planet. There was a faction on planet of the original hosts to fight against the human hosts and trying to alert the ship about the elimination of their species. Gyymmmphhere intended to find the first group of soldiers and then tear the buildings apart where the engineer lived to find the secret plans. The Emperor/ Gymphhhh-itchee had told him that there were secret plans that showed secret stairwells, passageways and much more that could be very damaging if the opposition army got their hands on them. The area they were traveling into seemed very quiet with no sign of life. This seemed very strange to him. The troops that were on foot were moving to slow for him and he was becoming more anxious as they moved closer to the residence. Such were the feelings of the human host, Captain Jack Roswell, as the small platoon walked their way toward the residence.

The road was lined with thick Fir trees in this area and the mansions could not be seen until a driveway was passed. Gyymmmphhere had split the squads and sent two out front about 500 yards. Those two squads disappeared around a corner in the road and Gyymmmphhere barked out an order for the two remaining squads to pick up their pace. Five minutes later the squads turned the corner with the scout car right behind them. The road straightened out and they could see flames burning over the tree tops in the distance. The two squads that were in the lead were nowhere to be seen. Captain Jack looked around and screamed out to the squad leader in front of the scout car, “WHERE ARE THE OTHER SQUADS?” Lieutenant Huebers/Gympee-Ichrrres looked at the Captain and shrugged. “I don’t know Captain; they should be in front of us.” “Okay Lieutenant, send your men to find them, I will take the car to the farm. When you find those men meet me up there.” Captain Jack ordered the driver of the car to hurry forward. He could see the flames and wondered what might be on fire in this residential area. Gyymmmphhere waited for the two squads to disperse and finally gave the driver the go ahead. The car rolled forward into a sand dune. Gyymmmphhere screeched out an explicative and looked around. He could see the troops in the distance and they were walking away from his position. The scout car was hopelessly stuck in the sand so Captain Jack radioed the squad leader and told him to get back.

Lieutenant Huebers/Gympee-Ichrrres took the old-fashioned hand set from Private Thompson and spoke at Captain Jack. “Captain, where have we been sent to? This is nowhere in Colorado. This looks like the big sand lands in the Country of Africa. We do not have the proper provisions to survive these lands.” “Get back here Lieutenant and we will discuss our options. Where are the other two squads?” “I do not know Captain, we were following what seems to be their footprints, so it appears they may have come here also.” Gyymmmphhere could feel the human Captain beginning to have discomfort from the heat. The human body he inhabited, was quickly degrading with energy and he began to prepare to abandon this human and enter another one that wasn’t having the drop in energy. The Captain raised his binoculars and watched the squads fall to the sand as they walked toward him. His eyes were beginning to turn dark around the edges. The air was very heavy and tasted like some sort of gas, it was subtle but none the less, a memory flooded his mind of Carbon Monoxide. Gyymmmphhere moved to the ear opening of the human as it fell over the edge of the turret. He entered the bone dry, gaseous air and immediately ceased to exist. On a small planetoid of pure sand and invisible gas a small platoon of aliens and soldiers from the planet earth located some 1000 light years distant passed away and turned to dust as the fluids evaporated and the flesh and bones fell apart.

It had been almost a full 24 hours since Alice left to get the patriots to fire on the inner walls for distraction. The teams had found a few areas where they could surveil the inner most defense wall and within 4 hours the shelling began falling close in and some were hitting the wall. The soldiers that were watching had to move readily as the secret service and Emperor soldiers patrolled the floors. Jack and Keegan both knew they were running out of time and sooner or later they would be spotted. Tamara and Janice moved around, invisible and began to find how many Aliens were inhabiting the humans in the palace by getting to close to any human. The screeching that followed by the worms caused the SS and soldiers to shoot the Anti-cloaking devices everywhere. The cacophony became almost a laughing matter but some of the personnel in the building were shot with real weapons so Tamara and Janice decided to stop their action. It was becoming clear that the worms had taken over most of the humans that inhabited the Palace. The humans that were still just human could be seen to cower in their movements and were observed to be always looking around and down. These people were very afraid.

Jack looked at Janice and Tamara as they became visible inside the Utility room. “What does it look like out there, do we have a chance to get through and go upward?” Janice shook her head and said “it appears the Emperor is bringing in more of the minions from the wall now that it is being shelled. The only way for us to get through to a stairwell or elevator without being seen is all of us to turn invisible like Tamara and I can do and even then, there are too many of those worms in the humans that can detect us and that will cause a fire fight of some sort. ‘I think our original mission to take out the Emperor without collateral damage has become an impossibility. We all know that the worms have now eliminated most of the fish aliens and taken over the humans and I do believe the Emperor or the human that was the emperor is no longer or soon will no longer be relevant.” Keegan was standing close by and said “are you saying that we should fight our way to the upper floors and possibly take out as many of these human/aliens as possible? The Emperor/human/alien may still be needed in power to control the conquered humans so he definitely needs to be taken out.” “Yes Keegan, I do believe we are going to have to fight our way to the Emperor’s floor and perhaps to that Penthouse on the very top floor and we will be eliminating humans that have been inhabited by the worm aliens. There are others around the world that are doing the same as we are doing to free this planet from the dictators and the aliens that have invaded us so stealthily. We must prepare ourselves for what we must do now and there will be those of us that will not make it as we fight our way to the final goal.”

Jack and Keegan steeled themselves for the next move to accomplish their mission. Keegan started to move to the other room where his team waited. Jack spoke to Tamara and asked her to round up his men that were scattered around to observe the movements of the enemy and meet here. Keegan did not get to the door before three young people materialized in the room. Keegan recognized Alice but the other two children were new. He knew that if they materialized with Alice then they could have the same gifts or use of their brains like Tamara, Janice and Alice. This gave him hope that the mission could be carried out with less casualties.

“Alice, thank the creator. What is happening beyond the Palace?” Tamara moved toward Alice as she asked this question. Alice looked at Tamara and Janice then at Jack and Keegan. “General Andersen has ordered the shelling of the two inner defense walls and that began some time ago. The outer defense perimeter is crumbling rapidly and the patriots are beginning to penetrate around the entire perimeter. There are reports of violent skirmishes and it seems there are many Emperor soldiers abandoning that defense and either moving inward or surrendering. We have not been able to communicate with you since I left, what has transpired to block our telepathy?” Janice spoke up at this question. “We suspect the worms have completely inhabited all the humans in the palace and exterminated all the fish aliens. Without the interference from the fish, the worms have been able to create some kind of barrier against our mind communication. These creatures are very intelligent and can find their way around just about anything given enough time. We must all remember; they can communicate as one themselves and most likely do so with all their kind that seem to exponentially procreate or something like that. If we do not act soon enough to stop them, they will completely inhabit this planet.” Tamara turned toward the two children that showed up with Alice and asked who they might be.

Terrance and Lorelei looked around the small room at the patriots and had listened to the tall women explain why she and the girl thought the telepathy was not working. Terrance looked straight at Tamara and spoke. “My sister and I are the children of the main Architect/engineer who originally designed this building. We have all the secret passageways, stairways and rooms in our memories and can lead the patriots through this maze to reach the Emperor on his penthouse floor.” Tamara turned to Alice then back to the boy and said “You do know that the Emperor is completely inhabited by the worm species and is no longer of the human race other than in appearance only?” Lorelei, who was close to the same age as Tamara smiled and stepped forward around her brother. “Yes Tamara, we realize what we are up against. You see, Terrance and I have been inside this palace many times albeit in a holographic simulator and we know about the aliens through Alice and other patriots of your Army. Our parents were murdered by them just recently and we have been recruited to help you and your teams accomplish the mission you came here to do.”

Jack stepped forward and asked, “may I know your name boy?” “Yes, Sergeant Major, Bollard, my name is Terrance and my sister’s name, is Lorelei.” Jack wasn’t going to waste any more time, “okay Terrance, we are ready to get on with this mission, if you want to lead our teams to a secret passageway and stairwell to reach that penthouse without being seen by the damn worms out there, we are ready.” Tamara spoke directly to Lorelei. “These aliens can detect us around 5 feet and may be able to do so at greater distances by now. Janice and I have stirred up their nests a bit so they will be on alert.” “Can they actually see us when we are invisible?” Tamara and Janice both smiled when Lorelei mentioned being invisible. That statement let them know that the two children knew how to use their gifts. Alice finally had to speak up and tell them all that Terrance and Lorelei were both just like most of the folk from the haven. She did not tell them that Terrance and her had been married in another life. As they began to prepare to leave, a signal tap came on the door and Jack moved to open it slowly. One of Keegan’s team stepped inside quickly and spoke quietly. “We need to vacate this area quickly. There are about 30 soldiers starting to come into the Palace and it seems that there could be a large company moving onto the grounds around the palace. You should know that we have heard a leader barking orders to begin a thorough search of every floor.”

Terrance took Jack and Alice to the back of the room and asked Jack to move a storage rack away from the wall. He spoke in the mind to Lorelei as they could hear each other in this room and told her to follow Captain Keegan and Janice and his man that came in to their hiding place and show them the entrance to the secret passageway that led to a stairwell that would take them to the 3rd floor. We will meet you on the 4th floor in that secure room, you know the one. Do not venture outside of the passageway or stairwells, those worm creatures have gained a knowledge of how to see us within 10 feet and they may be able to sense us at greater distances. Jack and two other soldiers moved the heavy shelving unit away from the wall and Terrance touched a smudge on the wall and a hatchway opened. Jack began to tell his men to get in and waited. Lorelei took Keegan and Janice into the corridor and they quickly and quietly hurried to the empty room where the team was waiting. Once in, Lorelei showed them where the secret hatch way was to enter the secret passageway. Tamara and Alice were the last in after Jacks team and waited for Terrance. The wall closed and Tamara almost disappeared to go back out when Alice stopped her and Terrance appeared beside her. “I had to put that shelving unit back so no one would see something suspicious.” Jack and his soldiers were bunched up in the passage way that seemed to be lit with low level lighting. Terrance took Alice’s hand and asked Tamara to take the rear while they made their way through the passageway. They began to file forward and it seemed like 30 minutes, although it was only about 10 minutes, before they finally came to a hole in the wall. Terrance disappeared into the hole with Alice and could be heard softly telling them to watch their step.

In the empty room where Keegan’s team had been hiding, Lorelei moved to a big storage rack that was full of cleaning supplies. She moved some of the supplies to the side and saw the secret pattern on the wall that would open a small hatch into a passageway. She wasn’t afraid or shy to use her gifts in front of other people now that she knew these people were good and they also knew about others having the gifts and being able to use them. She stood back and a moment later the storage rack moved away from the wall. She quickly walked to the wall and pushed on the concealed catch. The wall hatch opened and she motioned for the team to enter. Janice smiled and stood beside Lorelei while the team members entered the passageway. Lorelei told Keegan how to close the hatch door and waited for him to do it. Janice asked if she could move the storage rack back and when she did, her and Lorelei both disappeared through the wall. The passageway led to a narrow stairwell and they all began to climb toward the 3rd floor.

Justin Walker led the two teams through the residential neighborhood as they moved toward the east. He had split the men and women up and spread them out. His plan now was to make it to the Colorado Blvd and then move north and west to cause as much hit and run damage as possible. He was now aware of the shelling of the inner walls and from a spotty INTEL heard that the minion army of the Emperor was becoming more alien. It appeared that the worm species had ramped up their takeover after ridding the main cell of the previous symbiotic slaves and taking over the humans directly. Justin could not help from thinking about the two teams inside the palace and the children that went to help them. He was worrying about his daughter, Edina who was with Captain Jorge Tyler and Kathleen Anderson along with Josie the dog. They had taken the rear position and the main body of his teams had just crossed another main road as they moved into the denser neighborhood.

Jorge had left the house with General Walker and the dog. The teams had gathered outside in the driveway and they all began to move down that driveway as quickly as possible. They had to get across the maid roadway and disappear into the eastern districts before the platoon of minions showed. It was determined that the force was only about 10 to 15 minutes away. Jorge crossed the main road with the main group and stopped in a yard of the small ranch that was across from the Claymore residence. He was going to wait for Edina and Kathleen who had waited for the children and General Green to make last minute preparations to destroy the house. Josie had continued with the team but stopped short and hurried back to him. He had made a connection with the dog and found that she was quite loyal to him. He looked at the driveway across the road hoping to see the two sergeants and noticed the big house erupting in flames. He began to move toward the residence when Sergeant Walker and Sergeant Anderson ran across the main road and into the grove of trees, he was waiting in. Josie had run to Sergeant Anderson and turned to bring them to his location. The Sergeants had stopped and turned around to see the big house slowly become a flaming inferno. “Where are the children?” Kathleen spoke as she watched the flames grow, “they were finishing the destruction of the house and barn when we left.” “You left without them, we should go and get them.” Jorge had taken 10 steps in the direction of the house before stopping and turning around to see both women and the dog standing firm. “Are you coming? Hurry, we don’t have much time.” Kathleen was the first to speak up. “No Captain, the children are already gone. They have left for the Palace and we should leave here right now before that small platoon of minions arrives.” Jorge took a moment to hear the Generals words when they left the big house and began to move past the Sergeants. “Come on then, let’s get the hell out of here.”

Gyyyyumpee-Icheeee/Captain Ural Hardgroves led his cell of 10 inhabited humans from Colfax Blvd into the southern residential districts. He had gained INTEL telling him that a small platoon of patriot guerillas had infiltrated the residential area to the south between Colfax and 6th Street. All things being said, his cell of 10 could take on anything and destroy it. He was given the order to find this group and destroy it and find the other partial cell that had become lost in the same area. After the Cell had left Colfax, they had run into a small group of humans and had to kill them. He wanted to take them prisoners and get more of the cell to inhabit but the humans fought furiously and had to be killed in order for his cell to get through. As they moved further south there were additional humans that had to be eliminated and he finally realized that the weapons were making too much noise. He told everyone to fire their weapons only if urgently necessary and hoped the noise did not carry too far. The rich neighborhood of huge houses and bigger chunks of land seemed to be overly quiet to Hardgroves as they roved through on the lookout for any human activity. He had noticed a big fire in the distance to their south and wondered what that might be. He had wanted a couple of vehicles to get into this area faster but the Emperor/cell leader had begun to use the remaining vehicles for border patrols only.

Josie ran in front of Jorge and the two women as they walked across the small residential farm toward the east. Jorge knew the General and the two teams were way out in front of him by now and the Operation was to reach the Colorado Blvd and head North to reach the Colfax road and head west to create guerrilla actions. His move now was to head north from here and meet up with the teams closer to the Colfax road. When they reached the road on the east side of the property, Jorge had to call Josie back as she had already entered the property on the east side of the road. She came back after a minute and Jorge struck out on the road heading north. Josie quickly caught on and moved out in front once again. Jorge did not want to stay on an open road but could not find a way to get off and into an unobstructed path yet. The small deserted road allowed them to move quickly and they could see where they could jump off quick enough to hide if the occasion rose.

Gyyyyumpee-Icheeee/Captain Ural Hardgroves kept the 10 inhabited humans in a tight group as they moved toward the flames. He had reached out to speak to the cell that was supposed to be in this area but received no communication from any of them. He pressed forward toward the flames and was met with an indigenous animal that barked at him. He thought at first to shoot the creature but quickly stopped himself and two others in the cell from doing the same thing. He did know that there were enemy soldiers in the area and the loud crack of rifle fire would alert them. The animal turned and ran back from where it had come and disappeared around a building. Hardgroves told his cell to be on high alert and moved forward once more.

500 hundred yards south, Jorge, Kathleen and Edina heard Josie bark and stopped. They stood in silence for a quick, few minutes when Josie ran out into the street just in front of them. She hurried to them and stopped as she kept turning her head back from the way she had come. Kathleen bent down and put her hand on the dog’s head and talked quietly to her. She stood up and told Jorge that they had to get off the road. “There are a group of soldiers coming our way and they did not seem very friendly, according to Josie. In fact, Josie tells me that these men did not seem to be human.” Jorge turned and looked back south then told the women to find cover and stay as far away from the road as possible. “I suspect those soldiers are all inhabited and most likely by the worms at this stage. I have been told that they can sense anyone with telepathy capabilities. Someone has said that the distance is limited but I am not sure how close or far away that is.” Edina and Kathleen moved to the right side of the road and climbed through the thicket of brush to hide themselves. Jorge went to the left side and clawed his way into the brush. Josie was with him and stopped when Jorge turned and sat quietly. 10 minutes later, Jorge heard the footsteps of someone walking along the road.

In between and nice to hear from you dear lady. Garden growing like weeds I take it yet with edible stuff and good. I fell into another dimension, looking for my Lorelei at the beginning of this year. I will be back to read your posts and others. I am going to finish the Part 1 of the above post for now and will talk soon. I have been trying to write the ending to this 4 book series and found that I am starting into a capstone or even another series carrying the characters into other worlds. Things to come as I am finding my way in the same new places.

Captain Hardgroves had picked up his pace after the encounter with the animal, dog it was called by the humans. He understood that the animal could be with other humans and he wanted to surprise those humans and wipe them out. He led the way at a fast pace and could hear the others mumbling. He had to stop and turn on them to get them to calm down. “You are making too much noise and it will get you killed. Get yourselves in order and let’s get this mission completed. Sergeant Whirlitzer, take Gout and Himez and get out in front and be quiet and quick. I do not want to be surprised.” The three worm inhabited soldiers walked easily down the road toward the fire they could see in the distance to the south. Whirlitzer did not care for the human captain although the higher cell controlling the human was to be obeyed. He knew the animal that they had encountered was a stray creature and most likely was not with any humans. Gyyyyumpee-Icheeee had appeared to be very paranoid since they had begun this mission. The ten of them could handle anything with ease and most of them took this assignment to be so routine to be mundane. The enemy soldiers that were said to be in this area had most likely already left the area because there were two other groups of Cells/emperor soldiers patrolling the entire district.

Gout and Himez had walked ahead about 10 to 15 feet and Whirlitzer cursed the human body function of having to eliminate fluid as he moved to the side of the road to perform this task. Jorge had watched the first two soldiers walk by and had to keep Josie from running out and attacking them. He was hoping that the group of soldiers would pass them and they could head north without these worms ever knowing about them. He knew that Edina and Kathleen both could read minds of others and he prayed that these creatures would not be able to detect them as they walked by. It was the third soldier that ended that hope. He wasn’t sure how it all came about but when the soldier walked toward his position and stopped at the edge of the hedge to relieve himself, Josie pulled loose from him and attacked the soldier. The commotion made the two in front turn and shoot Josie. He had tried to stop her but caught himself so as not give his position away. He heard the screams from the soldier that was surprised and then the crack of the guns, then he heard Josie yelp and could see her tumble to the road surface through the hedge brush. He saw the inhabited human also fall. It seemed that the two in front had shot him as well as Josie. He could not help himself then and scrambled to reach the road. He meant to shoot the two worms as he crawled from the hedge. He stood up and raised his rifle and dropped both soldiers and then found himself falling forward. Something had slammed into his back. He saw the pavement rushing at him and then everything went dark.

The room, or so he thought, was small but airy which made it seem bigger. There was bright light beaming in through openings. He stood up and was knocked over by Josie as she ran to him. He was on his back as the dog licked his face. He was happy to see her and wondered how this was happening because he had clearly seen her die on that road. He stood up and looked around the room. His eyes rested on the table and as he walked toward it, he could see what looked like stones lying on the top. Something made him think he had been here before and he began to remember. He held out his hand to touch Josie and then noticed it was transparent. He then noticed that Josie was also transparent, but how was it that she had knocked him over, he thought. He reached down and touched her and she felt solid even if she was transparent. When he touched her, he heard her speak, clearly. “I was told to wait for you and that you and I could go back to find Lorelei.” Jorge pulled his hand away for a brief moment and then realized who and where he was. “Jehna, I had forgotten where and who we are, how long has it been?” “Remember, time does not exist here but we can choose to return.” “Yes, shall we see then?” JaeTea walked to the table with Jehna as she raised her front and stood on her hind legs. On the table were three stones. The first one was a deep reddish brown. The second one was a pure azure while the third one was blue-green. Jehna put her paw on the blue-green stone and a holograph appeared of the earth. Neither knew when the time would be on this world but they did know that it was where they had been prior to coming here once again. The other two stones would take them to another world, perhaps in a different dimension. JaeTea placed his hand on Jehna’s paw and they found themselves inside a room that appeared to be empty. The windows were broken and it was dark outside. They could hear explosions in the distance outside. JaeTea touched Jehna and said “let’s go see where we are girl.” The boy and the dog walked out of the abandoned house into a night that was on fire as they looked in front of them.

Edina and Kathleen had watched the first two soldiers walk by and then saw the third one walk straight toward where JT and the dog had crawled into the hedge. Both of them held up their rifles and were getting ready to come out with guns blazing. The next few moments were a slow-motion nightmare for both of them. The dog came out of the hedge first and attacked the soldier. They heard him scream and try to kick the dog away. The crack of automatic gun fire dropped the dog first and then the soldier. Kathleen stifled a yelp as she saw Josie go down. They both saw JT come from the hedge and stand up as his rifle was blazing. The gun fire stopped for a split second and then started again and they saw JT fall face forward onto the pavement. Something or someone had shot him in the back. Kathleen had to hold Edina back this time as she was getting ready to scramble from the hedge. Edina turned to her and almost punched her but common sense took over and she sat back with tears streaming from her eyes. You know we can’t go out there now until we see how many are coming from the north. Yes, I know Kathleen, we just saw our Captain die and it is very hard to just sit here while his murderers are out there. Yes Edina, I know and we saw Josie go down also. You know what JT would say so let’s watch and see first. We know one of them is dead and I think Josie may have killed the worm before she went down. JT took out those other two I think but we don’t know about the worms. Both of them sat very still with tears flooding their faces as a group of soldiers walked into view. They could see one of them kick JT’s lifeless body and then gloat. “Ha, I told you to be careful, now look, the three idiots are dead along with this patriot and his animal. How fortunate that he came out when he did or we might never have known he was in the area. I keep telling all of you that these patriots are not to be misjudged. Now get your butts moving, we have to get to that area where our other cells disappeared. The two sergeants watched as the worm-infested humans walked away. They could hear the footsteps as the 7 worms walked away and waited for a good ten minutes before venturing out. Edina was first out and checked it out before waving Kathleen out. She hurried to JT’s body and listened to his chest after rolling him over. He definitely was dead so she took his ID and Dog tags and anything he might have on his body that would be wanted by others. Kathleen removed the collar from Josie and stuffed it in her pack. The two of them made double time toward the north. They left JT’s body with the other ones.

The Utility closet on the third floor of the Palace was a 10 by 12 room and held most of the janitorial supplies for the entire floor. There were also some additional furniture pieces that had been stuffed into the room. At the back of the room was a real closet within that room that was another 6x6 space that held additional paper products. The side wall slid open creating a 2-foot opening. A small girl stepped through and walked to the door. She opened the door slowly for a small crack and looked into the bigger room. She closed the door silently and returned to the opening. “There is no one in the bigger closet but we must be very quiet.” Lorelei stepped back and Keegan was the first out followed by Janice. Both of them moved to the door and Janice became invisible and stepped through into the larger room beyond. A moment later she opened the door and Keegan moved into the room. The other team members entered the small closet and hurried into the big room. Lorelei waited until they all had entered the big room and sealed the wall in the small closet. Keegan had cracked the door to the corridor and could hear people talking to his left. He closed the door and turned to everybody and put his finger to his mouth. Lorelei made her way to the him and stood waiting. He whispered to her and asked “where do we go from here?” Lorelei took Janice’s hand and they both disappeared. In the corridor, Lorelei floated to the right and moved to a door that was 4 doors from the closet and stuck her head through the door. Janice waited and when Lorelei backed out. Janice spoke in the mind is the room empty? No there are 3 people in there and I do not know if they are inhabited. How close do you have to be to someone or something to send it away? Lorelei thought about that for a moment and spoke I have to be able to see them or it, I don’t think a distance matters so much at this point. Ah, so if we step inside and keep a distance that won’t alarm the worms, we could send them away without anyone knowing the difference. Lorelei and Janice stepped through the wall to the left of the door where it was the farthest away from where the inhabited humans (if they were) sat and stood watching the three humans collaborating on some tablets they each held in their hands. Both Lorelei and Janice were curious as to what might be on those computers. They both knew if they sent the beings away the computers would go with them. They both were invisible and close to 20 feet away and knew they would have to alarm the beings to get them to drop the tablets long enough to send the human/aliens away. They began to walk toward them.

One floor up, Terrance opened a bookcase in an empty room that held many bookcases full of books. Alice had already ventured into the room to make sure it was empty. Terrance and Tamara were the first out followed by Jack and the rest of his team. The Library, or so it looked like, was around 20 x30 feet in size and had two big windows on the west wall. Terrance made his way to the door that opened into a corridor and disappeared. A few seconds later he reappeared and told everybody that they had to get through a central guard station that was occupied by two humans. “I am not sure if those two men are inhabited but one can almost be sure, if they are in this building, they are or have been taken over.” Jack asked “can those guards see the corridor from their position?” Terrance said “no, they can’t see the west corridor unless they get up and walk about 30 feet toward the west. There is another station on the south corridor and we should keep our eyes on that area as we get to the north room that holds the secret stairs.” “What is this floor used for?” “It mostly holds libraries such as this one and records, there are a few offices for the people that keep the records and books in order. The Fifth floor is where the Emperor has his offices and there are offices for his main secret service personnel and other rooms that used to hold a big cafeteria as well as sleeping quarters for those secret service people. The sixth floor is entirely the emperor’s penthouse. The next secret stair will take us to the 5th floor.” Jack decided to surveil the entire floor to find out how many human/aliens were on this floor and how they could be taken out. Terrance spoke once again, “Let Tamara, Alice and me do the surveillance and you get your team ready to move down the corridor and get to the room that has a number of 410 on it. The door should be on the North wall close to the eastern corridor. We will try to cause those guards to abandon the station and check out a disturbance or something in the eastern corridor.”

Janice and Lorelei walked quietly toward the three human/aliens. They remained invisible and watched closely for the reaction. They wanted to get close enough to snuff out any sounds and hopefully the beings would drop the tablets in their excitement of knowing someone was close to them. Lorelei stopped and actually backed up. Janice also stopped and turned to Lorelei. Lorelei motioned for her to back up and did not say anything. Janice turned and walked back to where Lorelei stood. What are you doing? I just realized that we do not need to confront these people. Me and you can just make the tablets disappear and send them to the Utility room and just as quick send the people away before they make any sounds.

GumpIchee/Agent Juttam and his two cell members sat at the table and communicated with the Cell members in the field and the head Cell on the 5th floor of the Palace building through the tablets they held in their hands. Gyyyyumpee-Icheeee had just sent a message that he and the other Cells had just terminated a lone patriot soldier and an animal that seemed to be attached to the soldier. He said they were close to the building where the engineer lived and where the other two teams had mysteriously disappeared. The building seemed to be on fire. Gyyyyumpee-Icheeee told them that he would communicate as soon as they reached the building. The tablets disappeared from their hands suddenly and they all three stood up quickly and started to screech. The Sand dunes were pushing off heat waves as the screeching echoed off the large mounds. The Temperature was exceeding 150 degrees as the three Human/Aliens fell in the shifting sand and rolled down the large mound. At the bottom, the heat was stifling and the Human bodies could not breath. The fluids of their bodies were running out every pore and it was clear these humans would expire shortly. Agent Juttam stood up and started to walk but only made it about 20 yards before he fell in the sand choking. The other two had gotten up and tried to follow the leader but soon succumbed to the heat also. The three humans expired as the sun burnt their skin into blisters and the wind swirled the sand over the dead bodies. The three Alien worms crawled to the closest opening but could find no living creature to inhabit and died a horrible way as the sun baked them into dried up husks. The Sand moon of the planet Zuster quickly covered the bodies with many feet of sand.

Janice hurried back to the room and gathered the team to come quickly to the now empty room. Lorelei communicated with Terrance and knew they were on the 4th floor and getting ready to go to the room that held the stairway to the 5th floor. She told him that Keegan’s team was getting ready to come up the other stairway that also led to that room. It will take us a few minutes to get up. Okay, we have to distract the guards to be able to get to the room. Janice and Keegan came in first then the rest of the team made their way in and Lorelei opened the secret door. They had to climb and walk the narrow passage horizontally until they reached the North area of the building, where they climbed up to a secret door that would let them into the room with the number 410. When they entered the room, Janice noticed it was full of stacked furniture. Her and Dan Killard had secret meetings in this room when she and he worked in the Palace. Lorelei moved close to the corridor door and spoke very quietly to Keegan and Janice. “Janice, you and I must go and help Terrance, Alice and Tamara create enough diversion to allow the other team to get to this room without being seen. The two guards are just down the corridor from here and the other team is in a library room on the west wall and more toward the south wall. All of you must stay over where we came in. The Aliens will be able to detect you when they walk down the corridor if you are too close to the door.

Janice and Lorelei became invisible and stepped through the door into the corridor. They both looked at the two guards at their station. Both men looked a bit edgy and one stood up and walked to the beginning of the west corridor. Lorelei moved across the corridor and entered another room. Janice followed quick enough and once they were in the room, Lorelei spoke to Janice. There are two more guards on the south corridor. Terrance, Alice and Tamara are waiting for us in an empty room close to the center of the building. They walked through the walls until they entered the room where Terrance, Alice and Tamara were sitting on some furniture. Ah, we are glad to see you. Does the other team know what is happening? Yes, they are staying back from the door far enough to keep any of the worms from detecting them. We are of the same thought to make all the worms go away on this floor. How are you going to do that without them sounding an alarm? Lorelei, you did it on the third floor when you and Janice made them disappear standing further away than they could detect you. Yes, we did but how do you know that brother? I saw you, and we can speak of that later, now we should clear this floor and get our teams up to floor five. The Emperor and his minions have fortified themselves and it is going to be a fight to stop them

Gymmmmpp-Ichees/Agent Rosenstein and Gyynnmphh-Icheeee2/Agent Shummer of the North corridor guard station both heard the crashing of something. It was muffled but clearly could be heard. The floor was almost empty except for the other two cell members and Two workers that were still uninhabited humans, simply because the female specie of this race could not be taken over. The only way they could was by the now almost extinct Xzanturs who carried the insulated worms. Gymmmmpp looked at his Cell member and stood up. Shummer stood and they both walked to the west corridor and peeked around the corner. Rosenstein stepped around the corner and began to move toward the south. He stumbled in the sand as his feet sank. The air was hot and the wind was blowing the sand in ripples. He stood up and turned around only to see large mounds of sand shifting and tried to cover his eyes from the sand in the air. A Brief moment later he heard a voice screaming in the wind. He knew it was Shummer and began to move toward the sound as he yelled out also.

Gmmyypph-Iche/Agent Struck and Ghypmmppp-Icchhe/Agent Paje of the south corridor guard station had heard the crash of something also and split up to investigate. Agent Struck, cautiously moved to the Eastern Corridor while Agent Paje moved to the west corridor. They both knew that there were two workers on this floor to catalog and Archive records and had thought that something might have happened in the record and Archive library where the humans were working. Agent Struck peeked around the corner and saw that the corridor was empty. He pulled his pistol out and clicked the safety off as he moved into the corridor. As he began to walk against the wall toward the North, he heard the crashing sound again so he stopped. The sound came from a room about half way toward the North. It was on the western side of the corridor and he knew that the record/archive room was on the other side of the building. Something was definitely wrong. He reached out to his Cell factions but there was no answer. He waited for a few minutes and then moved toward the area where the sound came from. When he reached the door of the room, he steeled himself to break in. He had no idea of what might be in there but as he stepped back to kick the door open, a door opened further to the north and a soldier stepped out. His surprise was his undoing as the soldier fired a silenced shot that hit him in the chest and knocked him backward and down on the floor. Gmmyypph felt the human body dying and began to move toward an exit. He did not know if there would be a new host for him but he would not survive long in this dead body. As he moved closer to the exit, he could feel a heat that was not there before. When he reached the exit, the heat became unbearable. He slipped out of the human body only to fall on very hot sand. His existence dissolved away quickly as the human body was covered with sand.

Lorelei stepped through the wall into the West corridor and waited for the guard from the south corridor to come around the corner. The others had taken positions to do the same as she was going to do. They had already sent some worms to the sand moon around a planet called Zuster in a system that was 40 light years from the planet earth. The Agent/worm peeked around the corner some 50 feet from her position. She was invisible and wanted to go closer to make the worm react. No one knew how far they had to stay away from these symbiotic aliens to remain undetected. She moved toward the Alien/human, watching for the usual reaction. She was just under 30 feet from the creature when it reacted with surprising speed and sound. The screeching broke the silence and Lorelei quickly sent the creature to the sand moon, but not quick enough to block out the sound completely. Over on the east side Jack had shot the other human/worm and Terrance sent it away. They heard the screeching and Terrance told the team to move to the room where the secret stair was located to the 5th floor. The sound would alert whoever was still on this floor and the Worm could have notified the other worms in the Palace. They knew by now that these things were like a hive and connected with thought as well as physical. Alice had suggested these things were like cells in any living tissue and seemed like they may have evolved into the worms from a one cell organism and become highly intelligent along the way and remained as a one cell organism yet split into each worm and this meant there could millions of them and growing.

Harriet Keller and Joan Pelletier both looked up and then at each other when the screeching sound echoed through the corridor outside the Records and Archive room where they were working. Both of them had known for quite some time that the other humans that worked in the palace had somehow changed. They had discovered one day, a taking over of a lowly janitor by something taking control of the poor man. They witnessed a worm or snake crawling into the man’s ear one day when another human came down from the 5th floor and knocked the janitor out. That man did not see them and it was like a horror movie or something when they saw the worm crawl from that human and enter the janitor. It was after that when the janitor became a completely different person. They greeted him every day just like before and the man seemed to not even recognize them. They learned how to identify the humans that were inhabited by whatever the worm things were and then they heard the screeching sound from one that seemed to be attacked by one of the big dogs. The sound was very distinct and when they heard the sound in the corridor, they knew it was one of them and something had made it screech. They both had planned to quit and disappear from Denver. They bided their time and planned everything. This was going to be their last day and had even set some explosives in the Record/Archive room to be blown remotely. They had noticed that most of the women had disappeared from the palace and that was strange and gave them the big incentive to leave sooner than planned. They were going to wait and then get out. The floor was very quiet so they would make their way to the ground floor and leave for lunch.

The Door to Room 410 was locked so Terrance, Alice and Tamara walked through the wall and unlocked the door so Jack’s team could get in. Jack had moved his team to the door and waited. The team was on high alert and as soon as the door opened, they all rushed into the room. Terrance closed the door and moved to the back of the room. There was some furniture stacked up on the back wall and the side wall opposite from the area Keegan’s team had come through from the floor below. Alice and Tamara levitated furniture away from the wall and set it down quietly against another empty spot along the wall. Terrance touched an area of the wall and pushed. The wall shifted just enough to allow one person to slip through. Terrance spoke quickly and quietly, “there is a smaller room inside, gather in there and wait. I will follow as soon as I replace the furniture and we will make our way to the 5th floor in three different ways. Keegan asked where Lorelei and Janice were and Terrance pulled him to the side and whispered to him that they would be along after cleaning up a few loose ends on this floor. A few minutes later the furniture had been moved back and the back wall was once again obscure.

Lorelei stood outside the door to the Record/Archive room and waited for Janice who had made her way around the floor to see if there were any other human/worms. She knew the two women inside were not inhabited and she was going to send them to a safe place with patriots. She was going to help Janice remove the emperor and knew that it was Janice that was going to deal with the dictator of the United States. The others, the two teams would fight a battle on the 5th floor while she took Janice to the 6th floor where the emperor and other Cell Aliens had escaped to and were preparing to escape into space to the mother ship. Janice walked around the corner of the North corridor and moved toward Lorelei. She had found no other Aliens or humans on this floor. Lorelei had told her that the two teams needed to go up to the fifth floor and that she and her would go a different route. Lorelei had told her that there were two human women in the records and Archives room and would need help to get out of the palace. She moved to Lorelei’s side and they both entered the room beyond.

Harriett had pulled her pistol from her handbag and told Joan to do the same. After the screeching sound they had heard, everything went very quiet. Harriett and Joan had never heard it so quiet so arming themselves was an appropriate reaction. Harriett was thinking seriously of turning the big desk on its side so they could have some protection if and when someone came through the main door from the corridor. She began to clear the big desk when the little girl and the woman appeared by the door. Harriett started to raise her pistol when the little girl spoke. “Harriett, hold your peace, we are here to help you and Joan get out of this building.” Joan looked at Harriett and at the little girl. The strange things that just happened had her and Harriett spooked. “Who are you, you one of those alien things?” “No Joan, we are not one of the worms. We have come to chase those things away. I know that you and Harriett are not inhabited and are planning to get away from this horror house today. Janice and I can help you get out of here without having to go down and through the front doors.” “And just how do you propose to do that?” Lorelei smiled and asked, “Where were you two going from here, that is if you can get out? I understand that you both live in an apartment on the palace grounds and neither of you have a vehicle for transportation?” Harriett spoke up, “yes to the apartment and yes, we do not have transportation. As for the destination, we both have children living in a small town up in Wyoming and that is where we were aiming for.” Janice was looking at some of the records when she heard Harriett speak of Wyoming. She moved closer and asked what the name of the town might be. Joan gave the answer, “It is called Cody and our children are teachers in the school system.” “Ah, yes, I know the place well,” as she looked at Lorelei. “Do either of you have anything you want to take with you?” Harriett looked at Joan and they both moved to a side room and retrieved a small suitcase and came back. “How do we get to your vehicle without being detected, the emperor keeps a close watch on us because we know everything he has done since before these other creatures took over.” “Not to worry ladies” and with that being said Janice touched each of them and turned to Lorelei who was now examining some of the records. “We should send the contents of these rooms to the Generals.” The next few moments, the rooms were empty.

Janice was anxious to get upstairs. She had come all this way and was within striking distance of the murderer of her brother, his wife and their two small children. Lorelei stood in the middle of the empty room and looked at her. “Janice, I know why you came here. You were here before and yet you did not strike. Your family or your brother’s family will have restitution but you must not use a hateful, revengeful attitude to take this Alien beings life and I say Alien because the human that once was the twisted character of a man is now nothing more than an inhabited shell for the worm being that has taken him over. You and I will go to the 6th floor where this creature and his closest cell members are preparing to exit the surface back to their mother ship and we will remove them to that sand moon. It is a fitting place for them as they have destroyed their own dimension and the unsuspecting race they inhabited. It is such a wonder that a race of beings with so much intelligence and power can be so vulnerable to nature and clearly a destructive force to all life including their own.’ “Come, let us remove the head from this snake that is controlling this country as is happening around the world. It is time for the human race to evolve to higher planes.”

The sky was clear and the wind was blowing from the North as Harriett and Joan materialized on the sidewalk of the only school in Cody Wyoming. Fortunately, they had both put on their coats and now turned around to see the street, in front of the school deserted, it was an eerie feeling. They had not been in this town for more than 5 years now and wondered what was happening. As they looked at the school building across the street, the front door opened and a person walked out, heading toward them. Joan was the first to react as the person came closer. She could see it was her son. He stopped on the far side of the street and motioned for them to come. They both picked up their suitcases and hurried across the road. As they approached, Frank Hardy hugged his mother and then Harriett and took their cases and told them to follow him. Inside the building, the hallways were clear but they could hear voices as Joan’s son led them down the hallway. They turned into another corridor/hallway and Frank walked to a door that said Teacher’s lounge. He opened it and a small crowd of folks and kids stopped what they were doing and turned to look at them.

Candice Hardy handed her baby to Jorgio Danforth and quickly stood up. She rushed to her mother and hugged her. Harriett had tears running down her face as she held onto her daughter. Harriett stepped back and looked at Candice and then the others, especially the children. “Are some of these my grandchildren?” “Yes momma, the little one is Hanna and the youngest boy is Jakob. There are two more in class. You will get to see them as soon as classes are over.” Candice turned to Joan and smiled as she moved to hug her also. It is so great to have two mothers and the children get to have two grandmas.” Joan and Harriett both were surprised and bewildered. Joan had to ask “how did you and Frank know we would be here?” Candice looked surprised also. “Oh, we thought you sent the woman to tell us. She showed up a few days ago and told us that you two would be coming home today and where you would show up. She also told us that you were fired from your jobs. We were so happy to know you would not be working for that tyrant in Denver anymore. Oh, mommas, we were so worried for both of you for so long. Harriett and Joan both looked at each other and decided to wait to discuss the woman that showed up and told their children about them coming home.

The Human shell/Vinnie Crumholtz/Emperor/Gymphhhh-itchee moved to the bar in the large living room of the personal penthouse and selected a large bottle of Scotch whiskey. He moved to the bar top and proceeded to place glasses on the counter. The small group of Generals both military and private politicians in top power positions began to move to the bar and take a glass of the fluid that Vinnie Crumholtz was pouring. Gymphhhh-itchee and the other Cells that inhabited the humans in power positions had discovered the liquids these humans ingested created a pleasant sensation through the pineal gland they fed upon. It had taken a few weeks in human terms to gather the main leaders of this country at the emperor’s palace to be picked up by a shuttle from the main mother ship to go and be with the supreme Cell. Additional shuttles had been dispatched to other countries around the earth to do the same. The supreme Cell had taken full control of the mother ship and managed to enslave the remaining Xzanturs to do the physical tasks required to keep the ship operating until they could get enough humans to replace them. Vinnie had made his own symbiotic situation with Gymphhhh. He allowed the worm to control a certain percentage of his being while he continued to control the remainder. He agreed with the worms to control the world and use the human race as slave containers for their existence. He had been identical to the worm’s views and existence for most of his miserable life. He was more or less an amoeba that sought to enlarge his own existence by symbiotically living off all other humans. He picked up the glass full of alcohol and dropped it as his voice began to screech. All the other humans that were infested with the worm aliens began to screech and move in epileptic ways.

Lorelei and Janice had entered the universe/no-time and re-entered this time plane on the Penthouse floor. They were met by Tamara and Alice. Lorelei spoke in the mind to all of them, the worms themselves cannot do anything and they cannot enter into a female of any species. This was discovered by a brave soldier as Alice has told us. However, they can use the humans they control to do harm to us. Janice and I used our ability to send objects and people away without having to physically touch anything. Line of sight is all we need now, have you, Alice and Tamara been able to do this? Alice and Tamara both thought for a moment and understood. When we go into that area there will be at least 20 humans controlled by the worms. There is a sand moon around a planet called Zuster in a very far away system. Janice and I have been sending the worm-infested humans to that place. We must send them quickly before they communicate with their mother ship and any other worms on this world. We all know that the other teams are now cleaning this world of the infestation.

One floor below, the worm-infested humans that called themselves agents of the emperor were patrolling the corridors and rooms looking for infiltrators. They had been tipped off by those on the first floor that the palace had possibly been breached by the enemy. The perimeters of guards and the walls were being bombarded heavily by the patriot armies and a small band of worm-infested humans had detected the humans that were able to use their brain powers to get through the barriers surrounding the palace. There were few humans left in the emperor army that had not been inhabited by the GYYUUUMMPHERS-ICHEES now and they were being hunted out and inhabited as fast as possible. The female agents had been destroyed with the Xzanturs as the worms could not inhabit them without the Xzanturs and that species was very close to being exterminated now.

Terrance and Jack stood in the utility room at the south end of the fifth floor, and waited for a time marker to enter the corridors. Keegan and his band of merry men had come up on the North end of the building in another utility room and were doing the same. None of them knew exactly how many agents were on the floor but Dan Killard told them that there was a compliment of 25 agents at any given time and there were at least 5 to 7 of them that were female. They knew that the worms could not inhabit the female species and it was understood that they would most likely have been eliminated by now. Terrance had wanted to reach out to General Walker and direct his teams to the palace safely but the telepathy, mind talk was blocked outside the palace. At first it was blocked inside the palace then something happened to relieve that and it could only be attributed to the fact that the worms needed to communicate inside. When the time marker went off, both teams would enter the corridors and begin to eliminate the worm-infested humans and secure the fifth floor. The four females of Haven folk as they were called, were going to capture and/or eliminate the emperor and the other cell leaders. No one knew how the main cell leaders were going to get off planet and they hoped that that would not happen. Terrance was concerned about the four taking on the group of worms that could be 20 or more and wanted to go with them but Jack and Keegan expressed their need for him to stay and fight with them. The silence was like burnt, raspy liver on everybody’s taste buds and then the time marker went off.

Keegan and his team entered the North corridor on the 5th floor and immediately received fire from the worm-infested agents and military that had come in from the battle raging outside. He backed his team into the utility room and moved them to the secret entrance. He knew that Jacks team was at the southern end of the floor and was thinking of finding another room to get to before entering the fray once again. He was the last one into the secret stairway when the door to the corridor began to explode in a chorus of bullets. He shut the wall door and hurried after his team.

General Justin Walker stood behind a large portion of wall that belonged to the inner defense wall. He could see the palace, a mere 200 yards away and the empty defenseless, area in front of him and his two teams. There were lifeless bodies of humans lying on the broken ground with fires burning shattered vehicles and some of the bodies. The air was dense with smoke and smelled like the slaughter yards of stock pens that he worked in as a very young man. When his daughter, Sergeant Edina Walker and Sergeant Kathleen Anderson caught up to them just south of Colfax, he was relieved but then Edina told him about Captain Tyler and the dog Josie being shot by the worms and his sorrow increased along with his anger. He had spread the teams out along the blown down wall and the plan was to make it across the no man’s land and blend into the trees. He knew the two teams that were inside the palace would already be close to the upper floors by now and wished he could communicate with them. He was able to communicate with the HQ and tell them where he was so they would stop shelling this particular area. Only problem with this would be that the enemy might figure out that this could be the safest spot to be and that would complicate matters so he told them to shell the area but a little less and his teams would make their run to the palace. There would be marked times for no shelling so that had to be his moment. They were a few minutes into that marked time so they began to move in pairs across the empty, smoking areas. Steven “Bigman” Washington took Corporal Lance Anderson and moved out first. The other two-man teams began to move in one-minute shifts and hopped through the smoke and stench in a running low profile. Corporal Anderson was the first to be hit. The automatic fire knocked him down halfway to the burning tank. He was still alive when Steven scooped him up and dragged him to a bomb crater. Steven doused the wound with morphine sulfate and stopped the bleeding just before he jumped from the crater and ran to the burning tank.

Sergeant Butch Henson and Corporal Tommy Right were the next to catch the automatic fire spewing from the tree line around the palace. Both went down in a flurry of bullets and it was clear that they were not going to get back up. Justin swore as he looked through his binoculars at his two dead soldiers and up at the tree line. The next thing he saw was the line of trees explode in a fiery kaboom. The ground lit up with puffs of smoke and the trees shattered in bits and pieces. Something had zeroed in on the area where the automatic guns were coming from. He heard a tingling in his head and then, get your men across that dead zone General, we got you covered. Justin did not question or hesitate; He knew who it was immediately and began to move himself as well as his two teams. Edina and Kathleen and a few others had heard the telepathy message and they knew that Samuel and Mary were strafing the palace grounds with their auto-cannons. Sergeant Kenny and Corporal Kirk scooped up Anderson on their way to the tree line. The two teams made it safely into cover before more automatic gun fire started coming from the first-floor windows of the Palace. Samuel and Mary flew over the top of the palace and barely caught the odd shaped craft disappearing into the atmosphere straight above the palace. Samuel knew it was a space craft of some sort and the chopper would never catch it. He dove the chopper down on the west side of the palace and strafed the grounds. The patriots were storming the inner perimeter wall and needed air support to make it across the burned-out space. What was left of the emperor’s army had moved themselves close to the palace and inside. The storm of bullets spewing from the tree lines and ground floor windows was liquid fire. Samuel had to raise the chopper quickly as the bullets tore into the side. Even though the chopper was cloaked it could still be destroyed by this solid wall of fire.

Kevin and Krystal had flown around the second wall perimeter and helped the patriots get through that line of sporadic defense. The de-cloaking device the enemy had used, appeared to not be in use since the shelling had virtually destroyed the outer defense lines and the walls. There was plenty of fighting going on and people were dying on both sides. It was unknown if there were any humans left that were not inhabited by the worm species on the emperor forces. Communication from within the palace had been non-existent since the two teams had left the tunnels and entered the main palace, except for the brief visit from Alice who escaped the blackout and brought information of the teams’ progress and the dearly sought information about the worms not inhabiting the females of any species. Krystal received a com from Mary telling her of the space craft that she and Samuel had just witnessed escaping the atmosphere above the palace. “It looks as if some of those alien worm species may have escaped. We know that our teams are inside and the fire fight inside looks to be ferocious.” Kevin heard the com as he fired his auto-cannons at the blasted wall where the enemy was firing their auto weapons at the patriots.

At the southern end of the palace on the fifth floor, Jacks team waited while Terrance became invisible and entered the corridor. He immediately heard the automatic fire. He quickly checked out the contingent of military that had come to this floor and were now bunched up on both the east and west corridors at the north end. It appeared there were a good group of agents in the mix. Terrance did not see any females and wondered what might have happened to them. He rushed back to the utility room where Jack and his 5 men waited and told them to hurry into the corridor and find rooms to station themselves. Jack had left half of his team on the first floor and Keegan left half his team on the third floor. The firing of weapons could be heard coming from the lower floors and from outside. Terrance dropped into the secret passageway and met up with Keegan and his team at the junction point. He showed the team a different passage and stairwell to another room on the 5th floor and told Keegan that they had to block the passage and stairs that were used to the north end. Keegan quickly spoke to corporal Tim Hutton who was the expert with explosives and the three of them moved back through the passage to the stairwell leading to the room above. Corporal Hutton set a small charge at the bottom of the stairs and placed a trip wire about 5 steps upward. They could hear the knocking on the walls and hurried back through the passageway. Once in the new stairwell, Terrance told Keegan to go up and the room would be on the inside of the corridor about half way on the east side of the building. He told them where all the soldiers and agents had gathered themselves. He turned and seemed to jump up and disappear.

Vinnie Crumholtz/Emperor/Gymphhhh-itchee had picked 10 0f 20 generals and politicians to be the first ones to join with the supreme, original cell on the mother ship. The other ones were to stay on planet to be the lower masters of the captured human race. They along with thousands of others on the planet would then control lower groups who would in turn control other groups and so on as a hive mentality as the supreme cell had learned to immolate throughout the eons. With the extinction of the Xzanturs species, the human race had become the latest species to inhabit and control and would eventually become a mindless container for the GYYUUUMMPHERS-ICHEES species who would then spread out and control this present dimension/universe. The moment he started to screech, he motioned for the 10 others to follow him and they quickly disappeared through the doorway that led to the roof and the special shuttle. The ones that stayed behind began to shoot wildly into the ceiling and walls of the penthouse. This was the diversion that gave Vinnie and his specials the time needed to escape. What happened after that was unknown as the group reached the shuttle and lifted off for the mother ship.

Re: Story of fiction and fantasy and science fiction

Post by LostNFound »

The three girls and woman became invisible and entered the locked door on the 6th floor of the palace. This door was alarmed and could only be opened by the emperor himself with palm and eye recognition. When the four females walked through the door as if it did not exist, it tripped the alarm which in turn alerted the 20 worm infested humans at the end of the long foyer which had another door to enter the over sized living area. Janice led the three girls to the inner door. She stopped at the door and could hear the screeching of the worms and a cacophony of weapons being fired. The door was being peppered with bullets and all four of them knew that walking into the room from any place at this moment would get them shot. The worm-controlled humans were going mad and crazy with fear of humans that could not be controlled and empowered with special gifts that could destroy their very existence. The small glass panel in the door finally cracked from the barrage of bullets that kept smacking into it. We should try to come in from the rear. I can see at least 6 or 7 of them. If we do that, we will have to make sure they all get sent to that sand moon at once. Janice looked through the shattered glass panel again and saw one of the humans go down. As she watched, she saw the worm crawl out of the ear and it seemed to fly up into the ear of one of the others. It appears that two or more of those worm things can inhabit one human body. I wonder just how long that can happen before one of them has to find a new host?

Lorelei took Alice’s hand and they both disappeared. Janice and Tamara were next as they all entered the no-time. They re-entered time in the back rooms of the penthouse and the silence seemed disturbing. Janice was the first to move to a door and open it gently. The hallway the door opened into was wide and when Janice entered, she could see a portion of the living area where the worm-infested humans were. She knew that if they tried to enter this way the worms would detect them and start shooting again. Alice spoke in the mind if we stay in rooms around the big living area until we are ready to send them to the moon, we can get closer. We must be very careful and time this right, those things have been alerted somehow that we are around. If we split up and enter the room at the same time, we can move them all before they have a chance to go berserk again.

Janice’s main goal, now that she was in the emperor’s lair, was to capture him and make him suffer before disposing of him. Lorelei had told her to not let her hatred control her actions, yet she did say that she would be able to take the evil toad out. She walked through the wall into the living room just as the three girls did the same. The infested humans were huddled in a group close to the bar that was a little over 20 feet from where the girls and Janice entered. What surprised them was the immediate response from the worms. All of them had weapons at the ready and sensed the females. The first shot hit Alice in the leg and she cried out just before she made that human/worm disappear. The second bullet grazed Janice across her left arm and that foul being disappeared. Lorelei and Tamara made the remaining inhabited humans disappear and hurried to where Alice had become visible. Janice took the time to begin searching for the emperor and any other alien humans. She was bleeding but not too bad. The bullet had burned its way across her arm so the wound seemed to be cauterized to some degree. As Lorelei bent down to examine Alice’s wound, Tamara joined Janice and asked if she was alright. Janice nodded while she looked around. We need to find the emperor and the others that were here. I know there were at least 20 maybe more and we only sent 9 away and that one that is dead. Will you help me find them? With that Janice began to move down a hallway to search rooms. They all knew the entire 6th floor was a penthouse so the remaining alien humans could be hiding in a very large area.

Janice searched some of the rooms until she came to an open door that led up a stairway. She hurried up the stairs and found a door with a small window. She looked through the door and saw the roof top with a landing pad. She burst through the door ready to send any enemies away but the roof top was empty. The cacophony of gunfire and explosions almost deafened her at first once her Adrenalin settled down. She moved to the edge of the roof top and saw the patriot army trying to get through the murderous gun fire coming from the palace windows. It became clear what she and the others must do now. It was clear that the emperor had escaped and it would become clear where the toad skipped out to hopefully but for now, the patriots needed relief to storm the palace. She hurried back into the stairwell and made her way down to the penthouse floor. She entered the living room and saw Tamara and Lorelei sitting next to Alice who had been placed on a couch. Something seemed to be wrong as she crossed the space from the hallway to their position.

Alice knew that her physical existence on this time plane was coming to an end. The bullet that hit her leg was not the kill shot. It was the quiet one that caught her in the back as she fell that was moving her toward the room with the three stones. She had been there many times before but this time was proving to be different. She knew she would come back quickly this time and be almost the same as now. Evan/Terrance and she had been married in a time before that stretched back a good one hundred and 50 years or so. She longed to see him now before she left but knew she would see him again very soon. Janice came into view and Lorelei told her that she, Alice was going to die. Janice did not understand at first but after a moment smiled to know what was happening.

Ariah/Bethany/Alice’s physical body fell away as her spirit entered the universe. She joined with the Divine Creator and lived an eternity in commune. She finally entered the room with the three stones and picked the one that would send her back the moment when she left most recently. She would be the same age and be recognized by the ones she had left. She would be outside the palace and meet with General Justin Walker’s team that was slowly making their way across the kill zone in front of the palace. She retained all her memories and the complete use of her physical brain. The feeling of falling was new this time but she woke up next to a burning vehicle. She stood up and her first sight was a boy and a dog. The Boy was looking at her and said in the mind, Ariah, it is good to see you. General Green I see you have come back as I have. Yes Jae Tea/Captain Tyler and I see that Jehna/Josie is with you. I do believe you and I have a place to go. Our soul mates are in the palace and we have a much further place to go with many others. Jehna, you will go with the females first and Jae Tea you will be with the males to clean this place until the females clean the space vehicle. I understand the worm race cannot enter a female so it is up to us Amazons to take out this worm invasion. Come, Jae Tea, I will get you inside. Jehna, you will come also and we will leave this place shortly to gather with the others.

Edina huddled behind a burning vehicle waiting for the right moment to run across the open expanse. Kathleen huddled with her and they would make the run together. She had watched her father; General Justin Walker make his run and saw that he had made it to safety behind a charred Humvee with Lieutenant Gina Roberts. The automatic gun fire coming from the palace 1st floor windows was brutal and the two choppers giving support to the two teams and the force of patriots were being selective to keep from hitting any of the patriots. Edina stood up and motioned to Kathleen. She shifted her head to take in the surrounding scape and saw General Alice standing next to another burning vehicle with a boy and a dog. She immediately recognized the dog and spoke to Kathleen, “does that look like Josie over there with General Green and that little boy?” Kathleen brought her attention to the two children and the dog and knew that Josie was standing next to the children. The two sergeants changed their course and ran directly toward the children and the dog. Jehna/Josie felt the two women and turned to see them running toward her. The ground began to explode in waves just behind them as they slid into the safety of the vehicle. The bullets pinged and glanced off the vehicle then stopped. Josie bumped Kathleen and licked her face. Alice and Jae Tea looked at the two sergeants and smiled. “Well, Edina and Kathleen, looks like we get to be together again. Both women looked at the little boy with a questionable face. Jae Tea spoke to Alice, “Ariah, it appears that two more Amazons are joining your forces. Shall we join the fray inside? I do believe the patriots will storm the palace from out here soon enough.” “JT? “Yes Edina, I was your captain, Jorge Tyler and I am Jae Tea in the real sense as Josie is really Jehna. There will be time for knowing after this war is ended and the aliens are gone. The world is nearing its complete cleaning and so we must complete our missions.” Ariah/Alice reached out as Jae Tea did and the five of them disappeared.

Lorelei, Tamara and Janice stood around Alice’s body as her spirit exited. All three of them knew that Alice slipped from her corporeal body into the universe to be with the divine creator. Tamara knew that Alice would be back just as she had come back to complete her part in the healing of this world. She did not know where and when Alice would return and Lorelei did not know either. Janice was preparing to move to the floor below to help the teams and spoke to the girls. “I know we are destined to fight the worms on their mother ship in outer space but we must help the teams below first.” She started to enter the no-time when she heard “No Janice, I brought help for the teams, we must meet the rest of our Amazons at the haven before we go to do battle in space.” The woman and the two girls looked sharply at Alice and smiled. Tamara spoke first, so you came directly back into the same body. I lost my body and grew another in Mary but all the same returned as I was. What are we to do at the haven?” “We will be going with you.” They turned to see sergeant Edina Walker, sergeant Kathleen Anderson and a dog. The child boy stepped out and looked into Lorelei’s soul. Lorelei’s eyes filled with tears as she rushed to the boy and wrapped her arms around him. “Jae Tea, it has been so long and yet no time. I have searched and waited for you to return. Will you be coming along? And here is Jehna,” she went to her knees and hugged the dog. Ariah/Alice had set up and then stood up and moved to Jae Tea. “Evan/Terrance is below and knows you are here. You must go down and be with Captain Keegan and his team. The worms are strong along with the military minions. This entire building is infested, the two teams have split up and are fighting on four of the floors. The Patriots are pushing forward from outside to get in. Once this building is cleaned of the worms, you and the others will be going out to root out other inhabited humans. The Amazons, as we are called now will be doing battle in space. We will all meet at the end and beginning, so get on with it soldier." Jae Tea held Lorelei for a few moments and then disappeared. The three women and three children and a dog disappeared almost at the same moment in time.

Re: Story of fiction and fantasy and science fiction

I thought to let all know that the above posts to the story completed the end to book four of my journey. However, I have written or started, what I may consider the capstone to this story of fantasy and science fiction. I might say, the fifth and final book, is called "THE CHILDREN OF THE STARS" and I do have a good start with it so far. I must say that I have edited the first three books and made them separate PDF's. I am still editing the fourth book, to which you all have read within this garden of delight as it came fourth from me.

I would like to offer the full PDF books to anyone who is interested. I will need someone to help me post them on this forum. I must say, this has been a great satisfaction in my life as I have written and learned so much about writing these past few years. I have lost a soul mate in this process and she was a major inspiration to my story telling. When I finally concluded this epic story to a series, I had no idea that what I was writing was becoming a reality to some degree in this crazy insane world we all live in today. The time line is catching up now rapidly and I finally decided to get off this world. This will be a good science fiction, part of my story telling, yet I still have the fantasy and pure fiction running through it. Please note that I intend to take most of my characters plus some new ones into space to join the space fairing communities of our universe.

So, Thank you all so much for tagging along with my internal world. and thank you, Christine, for allowing me to post on this forum. There are so many great inspirational folks here that post their own stories within this library of thoughts and feelings. Keep tending this garden folks. Meanwhile, I am playing Cowboy and having a great time doing it. I belong to an organization called SASS, Single Action Shooters Society and it is a real kick to play. So looking forward to my next installment of this Story.

BOOK V, "CHILDREN OF THE STARS"

The garden was quiet as Joanna sipped her tea. She was contemplating the state of the world and the war against the alien species and the tyrannical dictators that had ruled the world for thousands of years. She knew that the rule was coming to an end. The haven had come into existence to begin the end. The people that gathered here had begun to ascend to a higher plane for humanity and pushed the learning outward for many years now. The arrival of Hava/Evelyne and Luun/Eryne started the greatest learning curve to take the human race to a higher plane of existence. She had come to the haven with Major John Ballard and Lieutenant Jamie Carol when they destroyed a secret lab in Wyoming. Major Ballard was an extremely gifted human as was his wife, who everyone found out later about the relationship of John and Jamie and their daughter Eryne, who created much of the haven with John and Jamie. That was almost 8 years in the past now as 2041was just rolling around. Her hopes and dreams had grown tremendously with all the new folks that came to the haven and began to spread out to heal the world. It was the children that came and went that gave her the most hope as they grew more rapidly in the higher planes and spread worldwide in a short amount of time. She thought about all the animals that came to the haven and were able to talk with the humans and Janx the bull that she had grown up with in a previous life and how he came to the haven and created a family with Philamena. So much wonder and greatness to have and create and now an alien species invading an already infected world that was well on its way to a healing. It was as if it would all be for naught yet she knew that the peoples were fighting. She missed Carolyne and Christine and wondered how they were doing now. Carolyne and Bill had gone to Paradise and then off world to Nani – Kai – Kale and now they were back but stayed down in paradise to help the families fight the alien species. Christine and Jim were up in Virginia with Lionhawk, helping the patriots fight off the aliens and dictators. The Children were scattered all over, teaching others how to open doors in their being. She knew of some that traveled to distance stars as ambassadors and would be returning to unite a universal community.
