16. The Enemy of My Enemy Is My Friend!

“Hunters!” The Lite spelled the word out in big bold red letters. From past experiences  words formed with Red rather than the bright white usually meant something  “uncomfortable ” was about to happen. The three men looked at the word and moved closer, keeping their weapons trained on ME. The taller of the three men looked at the other two and said, “Hey guys, how the hell did he do that? The  man in the middle looked at ME again, “Probably has a computer screen sown into his cape and someone is sending a text message from a cell phone. I think someone is just screwing with us.”

“You know -” the taller man looked at the two men again, this time lowering his weapon, ” between myself, the kids and the wife, we have all the latest digital communications stuff and this “cape thing” is……different. When I, or I should say we first saw him, he was walking toward the lake, remember? His arms were down along his side and the cape was folded down as well… can’t get a computer screen to fold like that. Even the new flat screens are hard glass……his cape is paper thin.” The tall man stopped speaking then looked at Me…….”Hey Cape Man, or whatever you call yourself, do me a favor. Put your arms down and then put some words or images or something on your cape and then raise and lower your arms.” The third man spoke for first time, looking at the tall man. “What the hell you doing? This guy could be some nut case running around or maybe he is”……”Watch ME”… the Lite Papr spelled out on both sides of the cape…. The three men, with their mouths wide open, all took a step back.

Okay….what is happening here?  There was no response from the Lite. Two of the three men still had their weapons pointed at me. The tall man had his weapon down along his side and his head was tilted to the left, like he was trying to see inside MY cape. MY body stiffened…MY arms were down at MY side. I could feel something forming on the Lite Papr and at the same time parts of ME were becoming invisible again…but not the cape.

As I raised MY arms to open the cape the rest of ME disappeared so that only the cape was visible. I know the  three men thought  it was floating in the air…. because that’s how it looked to ME. I looked at the words on the Lite Papr. The Lite repeated what it had produced the first time we met the hunters except this time the letters were larger…………”PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS!”… Then, three things happened simultaneously. Bright flashes came out of the end of the weapons from the two men who still had their weapons pointed at me. The Lite Ring exploded from ME and did something to the projectiles that were produced by the weapons while at the same time freezing the two hunters in place. The tall man who had dropped his weapon and was not contacted by the energy of the Lite Ring raised his arms and said……..”Take me to your leader.”
