“You can visit it later on,” I proposed, “but for now, we are in some kind of urgency and we got to save a large number of the right people from the alien
invasion and the possible destruction of our world.”
A flying platform, an antigravity platform, large enough to carry everyone came quickly towards us. It was driven by a silver bright robot.
“Hello everyone,” said the robot as the platform stopped a few foot distant from our group, “My name is Silver and it will be a pleasure for me to guide you
through the starship for a grand tour; please walk aboard.”
“Thank you Silver,” I said, “we will be seeing you later at the village. Enjoy your stay everyone.”
“Thank you and good luck Richard, Lise,” Trish said.
We are now hovering over the old Montreal,” Hilda said as the antigravity platform left, “and there is firework at the old port.”
We left the starship,  it was 10:30 PM and dark outside; we flew to the north towards the Laval island and spotted our house where our daughter Veronique
was living alone while we were away in Hilton Head.
Before landing at the front door, we changed our appearance to the old familiar look adjusting the details through the eyes of our companion. We looked now
identical to our pre-enhanced body with the exception that we had no clothes on, just our superman suit that was really a part of our body.
“Have you ever seen an old fart with a superman suit?” Lise asked laughing at my look.
“Very funny Lise!” I replied, “It looks like Veronique hasn’t come home yet; let’s get in and change.”
Unlocking a door was child play; we walked into our bedroom, chose some clothes in the wardrobe, move the superman suit cells into the rest of our body
and dressed ourselves. A look in the mirror for some fine adjustment of our faces and we were ready to face our beloved daughter.
We didn’t wait long before we heard her car stopping in the driveway.
She walked in, threw her coat and backpack on the floor and suddenly saw us sitting quietly in the living room.
“My God! You scared me! There was no car in the driveway, I was sure the house was empty.”
“Don’t worry, it is us,” I said, “and we didn’t take the car, we came in our starship and flew down to the balcony.”
”What?? ”
“Allo chérie, ca va bien?” Lise said.
“What you are saying is crazy”
“Can I hug you? I missed you.”
She came hesitantly to me.
“Wait Veronique, before I hug you, I have to tell you that we are hard and hot but don’t worry, it is us all right even though we have changed. Also, when you
come into my arms, you will experience an intake of energy.”
We both hug her. She sensed the energy intake and suddenly realized that we were not the same and what I just said was not so crazy.
“There is starship is in the sky? Over the house? I would like to see it”
“Yes I will ask Hilda to show up for a moment.”
“And who is Hilda?”
“Hilda is the starship; she is an artificial intelligence and a superb one.”
“Hi Veronique, it’s a pleasure to meet you.” Said a soft, feminine and powerful voice.
We turned around and there she was in the living room, in the flesh or what looked like flesh. She had dressed herself with great taste and looked like a
Spanish dancer with a rose in the hair over her ear.
“This is a projection, a three-dimensional image of what she wants to look like at the moment.” I said.
“Hi Hilda!.” Veronique replied with moderate surprise. “Can I see the starship? I mean can I see you from outside?”
“Yes sure, I will come down. I am close enough now, come outside and have a look.”
We walked outside and the starship was all lights and moving colors.
“It is so beautiful, so huge.”  Veronique commented under awe.
The neighbors were coming out of their houses; some had cellular phones and were taking photos already.
The starship suddenly disappeared and we walked back inside our house.
“Our world is being invaded by the Krulls, they are very resourceful Aliens,” I said, “and they might try a diversion while they are looting our world; they might
start a nuclear war between China, Russia and the USA. They might spread lethal viruses and bacteria that would kill most of the population.
We would like you to come with us to the spaceship while we fight the Krulls.”
“I have four clients tomorrow for therapy;” Said Veronique, “I have worked very hard to build a clientele as a sport therapist and I was planning the opening of
a Yoga center. “
“Your life will never be the same from now on; once we get rid of the Aliens; you can move back in the house; we will help you financially to start your Yoga
center. But we certainly hope that you will join the 20000 colonists that will accompany us to another world where we will start a new civilization.”
“I can connect on your cellular, call all your clients and cancel your appointments for you Veronique if you show me your agenda.” Hilda interjected.
Veronique fetch her agenda from her backpack and gave it to me. In three seconds I had memorize all the names, dates and phone numbers and Hilda who
was still sharing my brain was already doing the phone calls.
We walked outside, took Veronique’s hands and jumped to the starship, through the open door and the ground closed up under our feet.
Silver was already waiting for us on the flying platform.
“Please hop on the platform, the robot will take you to the village; there are already some people there.” I said. “We have to get the rest of the family
members, we will see you later.”
Veronique walked to the platform, step on it and stood beside the robot. She was looking everywhere, fascinated, when the ground opened up under our feet
and we jumped towards Genevieve’s house.
“She took the whole absurd, impossible story quite well, didn’t she?” Lise commented with a hint of pride and admiration.
“Yes but she has been looking for supernatural phenomenon for years.” I said. “She was prepared for it; she studied that new art of healing people from
distance or with the imposition of hands; she went to Yoga afterwards; she became a therapist and she always kept looking for connection with a superior
world, universe or spirit. Perhaps she had the intuition that one day, her life would change dramatically.”
“With Genevieve it will be different; Lise commented, “She is the down to Earth, practical and no nonsense woman. Her husband is just the same. These two
gave all their free time to raise our grand children in the best possible way, making them into perfect law abiding, no nonsense people with an acceptable
career and heaven at the end of their life. Now they are retired, they have a great circle of friends and they don’t want any change in their lives.”
We landed on their balcony; there were many cars parked in their driveway. We suspected they had a family reception.
We knocked at the door.
“Mom? Dad? I didn’t know you were coming. What a surprise.” Genevieve said.
“Hi Richard, Lise.” Guy said.
“Grand papa, allo.” Simon said as he threw himself in my arms.
“You are so hard grand papa and so very warm!” He went on as he released his hug.
“I will explain in a moment,” I replied as I hug my daughter.
Hi Guy; good to see you!” I said offering my hand.
We shook hands and noticed their expression of awe and disbelief.
“Hello Karianne, are you going to give me a kiss?” I added looking at my granddaughter.
She did not reply. She had obviously caught that something weird was going on and preferred to stay some safe distance away.
Lise hugged and kissed Genevieve, Simon and Guy, said hello to Karianne and we all walked into the living room where Lise and I took a seat adjusting our
weight to a pre-enhanced level.
They all sat a little away, waiting for our explanations and just looking at us.
“All right”, I said, realizing that Lise was letting me do the explanations. In her mind, that was a great moment for me; after all she must have been thinking it
should be my show; I was the one responsible for what happened.
“So this is the story,” I went on. “Lise and I have been enhanced to superman level. We are immortal, harder than stones; we can fly and have acquired
certain powers. We don’t need to breathe, to eat or drink, we have no more heart, lungs or digestive system. We draw our energy from the cosmos.
We have a starship, waiting for us over the house. Earth is being invaded by powerful Aliens and we came here to take you to safety inside our starship.
Please take one object important with you and let’s all go outside where we will fly up into the starship.”
“That is so farfetched,” Genevieve said, “I must be dreaming.”
At that, I crossed my arms, folded my legs and rose up from the sofa with my most comforting smile.
“I can make you rise up from your sofa too,” I said, “it won’t hurt you, just feel it.”
She rose slowly from her sofa; she was not panicking; but I could tell that she was trying to feel the forces that were pushing her up.
“I believe we might be attacked at any time Genevieve by those horrible Aliens, perhaps we should move quickly now.”
“You have nothing to fear from us,” Lise added, “we are just trying to save as many members of the family as we can and you are the most important to us.
Veronique is already in the starship awaiting you.”
“All right,” Guy said standing up.”
“Do we need to take anything with us?” Genevieve asked; “are we going to come back here later on?”
“I hope so,” I replied, “We will try to destroy the Alien mother ship and organize the Earth defenses against all their landing shuttles. If we win that war, you will
be able to come back but your life on Earth will be different from now on.”
We all walked out and looked up to the play of light under the starship that stood a hundred feet over our head. We took their hands and rose quickly to the
opening, went right through and landed on the hard pack sand trail that had just formed under our feet.
“Hello,” said Silver, the robot, standing on the flying platform, “please come aboard everyone; we will do a grand tour of the facilities before I take you home,
to your new home where other people are awaiting you.”
“I will see you later on, perhaps tonight at the city hall.” I said as the floor opened up under my feet; Lise  and I jumped towards our son, Francis’s house. More
of the same happened and a few hours later, he and his wife, his daughter Arielle and her two children, his ex girlfriend Marianne and a few close friends
were safely inside the starship.
We came back for my sisters, and Lise’s brother Andre and brought them all in.
The last one was my brother Michel.
My brother is two years older than me and my God did he use it to its advantage in our relationship. When I was a sick and feeble teenager he was the
fearless street fighter that every bully in the small town we were growing up in wanted to try. He wasn’t tall at five foot eight inches nor appears to be very
strong but he had an incredible inner energy and rare ability to excel in any sport including street fighting.
So he was my idol and my tormentor. I never accepted his leadership for I thought that leadership comes naturally when a person shows superior intellect,
driving energy, zest for life and compassion.
He didn’t have more compassion than me nor a superior intellect to mine; he was often bossing me and I tolerated it since I loved him and had much
admiration for his qualities, his great heart and his ability to make friends. I admired his courage and his charming talent with women. He had so many
friends, unbelievable,  and he certainly deserved their friendship.
When my health started to improve at the age of twenty-three, after I was miraculously cured by an old holy man, I started to practice judo and I quickly
became a blue belt. Then I started to do other sports, ping-pong, racquetball, badminton, skiing and finally golf.
In all those sports, I became one of the good players but I never reached my brother’s level of excellence.
We sometimes had a touchy relationship since I had my own ideas about politics and other matters that we should never talk about but we needed the
comforting presence of a brother with whom we shared so many souvenirs. We loved each other in our own respective way.
Lately in my life I had improved my golf game enough to compete with him sometimes and that added some spice to our relationship. I was now a superman,
an immortal, with a far superior intelligence and my hero was an old man who still works out and try hard to keep up with much younger golf partners.
We landed on the front balcony and I rang at the door. My brother came up, walking up the stairs slowly, from the basement, with pain on his back and legs,
with his right shoulder still inflamed, his artificial knees…but when he opened up the door, he drew up some inner energy, all the energy he could draw up
from way deep inside and tried to look young and energetic. That is one of the thing I like about him; he wanted to project the image of the guy he was forty
years ago. To me, it is a most commendable pride.
Later on, once Michel his wife Franca, his children and some of his closest friends had joined the others inside the spaceship.
“Hilda dear, it is time to recruit at least 10,000 future colonists; would you broadcast on the Television net a commercial inviting people to volunteer for work
to help some of the Midwest City people whose houses were destroyed by recent tornados?  The volunteers should preferably be retired, fifty years and
older. The work will not be physically hard and they will be working in large teams; they will be fed and lodged and live an exciting life.
All the ones interested should e-mail a resume to worldsaving.com. The selected ones will be given a flight ticket to the Houston astrodome and limousines
will be waiting for them at the airport. Their mortgage or rent and all the other expenses and monthly bills will be paid and handled by our organization. When
they return home, everything will be as it was before. Moreover, they will be paid $10,000.00 per week.
Then please reserve the astrodome with my check card for a midnight conference three days from today and underline that time is of the essence and the
interested ones will have to act quickly and e-mail their application immediately.”
“It is done dear,” said Hilda in my mind, “the commercials are being broadcasted right now and I also sent e-mails to one hundred million people. I should
start receiving applications in a few hours.”
Please invite my clients too and tell them that they are already approved and should come to the East wing of the astrodome.
Hilda’s mind was like a computer but with more capacity than all the computers on Earth together. Her neural microchips were as small as a human brain
molecule and she packed trillions of them. She could simultaneously handle conversations with millions of people and do a million other tasks all at the same
time. A second for such a powerful computerized mind was like an hour, many hours. Fortunately, my enhanced brain was similar and we could exchange
thoughts at a super fast level.
“All right let’s get to the white house where I will meet the President.”
-------------
“Tell me everything you know about this Richard Riverin.” The president said to his chief of staff John Stockton.
All the important decision makers were there. It was a most dramatic and extraordinary meeting. There was Frederick Steele, the president; he had been
elected two years before. He was a solid, handsome, athletic fifty-five years old man; a fast decision maker, a genius with the oratory acumen and charm of
the late Ronald Reagan. He was now tested for the first time since his election. His wife Sandra was a retired movie star. They had three children in their
teenage and going to college. There was the vice-president Dick Harvey, a sixty-eight years old no-nonsense billionaire businessman; the Secretary of State
Mary Fenton; the secretary of defense Peter Grim, the CIA Director, Harold Findman, the FBI director Tony Sirchton, a few generals, a few scientists, the IRS
director Drew Taxon, the speaker for the Freedom USA party Drew Throbble, and the chief of the New Democrat party Jack Nice.
“This man is an artist-painter operating a small art gallery in Hilton Head Island, SC. He recently sold or gave away his gallery and his paintings to another art
gallery owner with whom he had been doing business in the past and a faithful employee, Trish.
Suddenly we find out that he is the main shareholder with control over the common stocks of a great number of companies. This man is presently the richest
man on Earth. He bought stock of emerging companies with an unseen intuition; it was like he knew the future, like a time-traveler that went back in the past
to buy the stocks of the most successful businesses of our time.
Our findings started with an unexplainable explosion in Hilton Head Island condo. The ceiling had been burst open but there were no traces of explosive. He
and his wife as well as their twin babies were unhurt and the investigator noticed that they were hot, hard as stone and they were not breathing.
The investigators started a search on both of them, Lise and Richard Riverin. That is when they found out that Riverin was immensely rich. They also found
out that his wife Lise had just had her twin babies in a Hilton Head hospital. They contacted the doctor and questioned her. The doctor said that she saw Lise
body becoming hard as stone minutes only after she gave birth. There was nothing left to do, not a trace left that she had just given birth to twins; she had
healed instantly and was in perfect shape showing immense energy.
A few investigators kept a watch of their condo and they saw them coming out on the balcony one night and literally jump into the sky at an unbelievable
speed. They then plunged back towards a condo in another part of the town.
They checked Riverin’s known contacts and found out that Trish, the lady he had just given his art gallery to, lived there. They rushed to her address and
came just in time to see the Riverins holding their babies and a group of people rise to some kind of flying saucer.
An opening took shape and swallowed them. Then the UFO disappeared like it had never been there.
We questioned Riverin’s accountant and legal representative and he said he met Riverin once a year every year for the last sixty years. He said that he had
never met such a fascinating person, that Riverin was a good man, perhaps more than a man, perhaps an angel. We questioned a waiter that served them a
meal not long ago. He said Riverin gave him a huge tip and transferred him energy as they shook hands. He said Riverin had a body hard as steel and he
also believed that Riverin is an angel.”
“All right what about the other UFO, the one we thought was a meteor aiming directly to Earth.” The president asked.
“We spotted the UFO briefly as it was slowly orbiting around the moon.” The scientist chief astronomer in charge of the Hubble telescope answered. It came
directly towards our planet at near the light speed and somehow broke to minimal speed as it crossed Saturn orbit.
We tried to establish contact with the Aliens to no avail. They ignored all our attempts. Then we spotted a small spaceship landing on an Island near Naples,
FL. We used the Hubble telescope to watch what the Aliens were doing there and we took this video as they spread out on the Island and set up camp in a
large opening. There was an incredibly big flying saucer on the ground about half a mile from the Alien’s camp.
We have been watching them for two weeks now and it seems that they were trying to enter the flying saucer.”
The scientist started the projector and showed everyone present a video of the Krulls.
“This is now the encounter between two demons and the Aliens.
Everyone saw the fight between one of the demons and a Krull and then the hasty departure of the Aliens and the lifting the huge flying saucer just an instant
before a terrible explosion shook the land it was lying on. The explosion was equivalent to what we would get with a powerful nuclear bomb but there was no
residual radioactivity.
It was like the Island had been hit by a meteor; the difference being that all the matter resulting from the explosion disappeared, disintegrated to nothing else
than energy.”
“So those Aliens have powerful armament, far superior to what we could throw at us.” The president commented.
“Not only that;” went on the scientist, “they have antigravity technology, invisibility, energy shield…Their technology is so advanced over ours that we stand no
chance in an eventual conflict. Our species is facing slavery or extinction.”
“And now, suddenly, we have a mysterious couple that people who met them believe to be angels and we have demons on our side. I never thought I would
one day face such a crisis.
“ I have talked with the presidents and prime ministers of all nuclear armed countries,” Frederick Steele said, “ to make sure that an Alien attack on one of
our countries would not be misled by an attack from us or any other countries. I wonder if I should talk to the population about the menace from those Aliens.”
“I think you should while you can.” The secretary of defense replied.” These aliens might well pulverize all the electric centrals and cut the radio and television
broadcast to start their invasion. The population must prepare itself for such an event before all actual mean of transportation is eliminated.
Without electricity, there is no fuel in the gas stations, no heating, no food from the groceries and I think that the people must arm themselves, they must have
a chance to defend themselves.”
“Should we discuss the situation with the Congress?” The president asked looking at the speaker of the house and the leaders of all three political parties.
“I don’t think we have time for that.” The secretary of defense interjected. “We should move right away to our main bunker installation. We are in immediate
danger here at the White House.”
That’s when the alarm went off, as Lise and I landed right in front of the White House main entrance.
I opened the door and walked inside side by side with Lise facing the muzzles of four guards armed with submachine guns.
“Don’t move any further, on your knees, hands over your head.” One of the guards shouted.
“No need to get excited my friend,” I said in a pacifying tone showing my most comforting smile. “Please don’t shoot; we don’t want you to be hit by ricochets.
As for us, we would not be affected by your shots. We come in peace to talk with the president. Please call him; it is a matter of great urgency.”
“I said on your knees or I shoot you in the legs.” The guard shouted hysterically.
“Then if you must, go ahead, shoot.” I replied.
The guard shot me eight times as I kept smiling at him.
“Satisfied?” I asked as I went on walking in the direction I thought would lead to a conference room.
The guards shot another round at us. I turned around and pull the guns out of their hands using the same kind of energy beam that I used to lift people to the
starship. Then I flew them under a desk.
I told you not to shoot at us,” I said, “We don’t want to hurt you. Please call the president.”
“Mr. Riverin, I guess,” the president said, coming out of the conference room, “we were just talking about you.”
“Mr. President, it is a pleasure to meet you but I would have prefer to do it in less dramatic circumstances.” I replied offering my hand.
We shook hands.
“Please follow me inside” The president said, “I wish to introduce you to my guests.
“So Mr. Riverin, who or what are you? Some said you might be an angel. And I noticed that not only you are hard as steel but you are warm, impossibly warm
for a human and you do not breathe, you got no pulse and apparently you can fly.” The president said once the introduction was over and after Lise and I had
shaken hands with everyone.
“Lise and I are enhanced humans.” I replied. “We are no angels but we are the only ones that might save our world from the Krulls.”
“Are they going to invade us? To what purpose?” The president asked.
“The invasion is inevitable,” I said, “the Krulls came from very far away to loot our planet. Their colony ship is huge and it is using some kind of fuel that is
probably too depleted to return to their world of origin without landing, manufacturing that fuel and recharge. They came to loot and then destroy our world.
We had an encounter with some of them. We paid them a visit on an island where they were trying to get inside my starship. We took the appearance of
demons and told them to leave our farm world intact. We told them we were feeding on humans and if they damage our farm world, we would start feeding on
them. I then fought and killed one of them to show our power and we barely escaped in my starship before they shot their maser at the island.
They probably think that the starship belongs to yet another species, since we told them we could jump from chaos to this universe.
So they are hesitant, they will probably land somewhere, fortify a base, perhaps many bases and start manufacturing their fuel to recharge their tanks in case
they need to escape and fly back to their world of origin. Once they have done that, they will probably start the invasion.
But I might be wrong and the invasion might be imminent so I suggest you all come with me and set up your quarters inside the starship. You will have no
difficulties communicating with the various agencies and you will be safer there than inside your bunker. The White house is the worst place you can be right
now.”
“Will we be able to keep contact with the rest of the government and the people?” The president asked.
“To answer that, let me introduce you to Hilda the artificial intelligence whose body is the starship.”
“Hi everyone,” Hilda said as she materialized on my side, “I will answer that question. I can broadcast messages to all the televisions and radios of the world;
I can control all the frequencies. I can talk with a great number of people all at the same time while doing a million other tasks. Your biggest computers would
be tiny parts of my mind and I can take control of them too. I was created by the Emissaries to serve humanity and they gave me to Richard as a parting gift,
as a reward to the writer that gave them their existence.”
“So, will you please follow me to the starship, we might have very little time left before the White House is destroyed.”
“Let’s go everyone,” The president ordered, “keep your questions for when we are safe in that starship…”
The guards that shot me in the back had come out from under the desk and were staring at me when I walked out of the conference room. They had
recuperated their guns but this time, they were keeping them pointed down.
“I am taking the president and everyone here in my starship,” I said, “the two of you are not coming.”
“And you are fired,” the president added, “just go home.”
The two guards hesitated not knowing what to do with the guns.
“Take your guns with you,” went on the President, “you will need them to fight the Aliens.”
We walked outside and went a good distance from the white house and stop; at that moment Hilda cancelled the energy shield that protected the starship
and kept it invisible. The starship appeared in its entire splendor and the antigravity beam lifted us all inside its shell. In just a few seconds we were standing
on the hard packed dirt road where Silver the robot was awaiting us on a large antigrav platform.
“Welcome to …” Silver started.
“The Endeavor” I said.
“Welcome to the Endeavor,” Silver repeated, “please step on the platform and I will take you all to the city and the mayor office.”
“It is much bigger here than I guessed from the outside,” the president mentioned, “it is so beautiful.”
“Some of The Endeavor’s rooms are bigger than the whole starship,” Hilda explained, “they spread into a fifth dimension. Her holographic presence had
followed us and she was standing right beside Silver at the aft of the antigrav platform.
The whole group of dignitaries, the President, the Vice-President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of defense, the generals, the scientists, everyone
was overwhelmed by what they were seeing, the beautiful valley, the far horizon, the strange artificial sky, the levitating platform, the robot, Hilda’s
holographic presence and Lise and I radiating heat and extreme energy. They were all wondering if the whole thing was true; wondering if it was a dream.
Silver took the control of the platform, elevating it to a height of one hundred feet over the valley floor. There were no protective rails and some of the people
standing close to the edge stepped back.
“Don’t worry,” I said, “the platform will stay perfectly horizontal and I can easily hold you or lift you back if you were to fall. Moreover, I assure you that this won’t
happen on my watch. Enjoy the view, relax, you are safe and by the way you are not dreaming. The Emissaries designed each of the Endeavor’s rooms with
care for the esthetic; they made them as beautiful as they could be.”
We watch a pack of wolves giving chase to a herd of antelopes. Then a flock of pink swans, thousands of them, flew right beside the platform. We saw a
moose and its mate pulling on cauliflowers and water lilies on a nearby lakeshore. We spent half an hour looking at the wild life action underneath, at the
prairies and the small forests, the flower fields and the streams and then Silver brought us down and into the doorway to the next room. Here was a different
panorama, there were the snow-capped mountains in the background and a large lake with a village built on its shore. The village counted ten thousand
houses, each one with enough lawn, bushes and fruit trees to make them most pleasant to live in. There was a village downtown with a church, shops,
restaurants and bars, a municipal park, a football field with a stadium that could seat twenty thousand people. There were cement paths for roller blades and
bicycles and many golf courses but everything was empty.
There were shining metal contraptions, some kind of machines busy cutting the grass or picking up fruits from the trees. Other ones were working in the corn
and wheat field that went on for miles from the village to the snow capped mountains. There was a marina with a hundred of sailboats attached to the boat
docks.
The village was clean; the lawns were well cut; the whole village had been kept in perfect state but there were no people in it except for a small group talking
in front of the mayor house and some more in a nearby restaurant.
“What a beautiful place to spend a holiday,” said Sandra the first lady, “I wish we had Harvey, Chloe and Jimmy with us.”
“Can you do anything about our children?” Frederick Steele asked.
“We can call them on their cell phone and ask them to come to the Houston Astrodome where we intend to pick up a few thousand people Saturday night.” I
proposed. “And this is good for all of you.” I added looking at all the present dignitaries. Hilda will pick up your contacts from your cellular phones and call
them; she will tell them what is happening and invite them to the astrodome. If your family members are not listed in your cellular, just say their names and
phone numbers; she can listen to all of you even if you all speak at the same time, she remembers everything.”
The antigravity platform landed in front of the mayor’s office.
Trish and Jimmy with our babies were amongst the group of people awaiting us.
“Emiss, Arries!” Lise said as we took them in our arms and kissed them delicately on the cheeks.
The babies were very happy to see us too and they expressed it in their own ways. They were only a couple of weeks old but evidently the tiny cellular size
robots, spread out in their entire bodies, were accelerating their brain functions. They looked as developed mentally as six months babies and they were as
big too.
“They were very easy to handle,” Trish said, “and they only cried when they were hungry.”
“Excellent, they are adorable,” I replied as I looked at them fondly.
People were coming out of the mayor’s house and the nearby restaurant-bar; when everyone was there I invited the president to say a few words to the small
crowd.
The president told them that he will collaborate to our efforts to fight the Krulls and he is putting at my disposal all the armed forces of the USA. He then
asked the small crowd to kneel down and pray with him for God’s help in the coming fight.
Once the prayer was done, we went inside the mayor office and from the main room we went into a circle in the middle of the office and were beamed up into
the ship control room.
