Black….the impact of total darkness was astonishing. The light rip had all but disappeared and just a razor thin line of light cut through the darkness. Even though this was MY world and home for however long ago, the total and absolute blackness of LiteWorld engulfed you. The Lite was providing some illumination from MY cape so I could make out the 50 humans who had just experienced…..actually I’m not sure what they experienced. But I could see them dimly in the glow from the Lite.
Unlike earth, LiteWorld did not have an oxygen based atmosphere. It was also cooler but not too cold for the humans to survive. The Lite Wrapping would sustain the humans for a period of time and the ever evolving nano material would generate energy and some nutrition by recycling their own body wastes. We would, however, only have a few earth days time to complete the transformation of MY army. Without the transformation or quick return to their home planet, the humans would die.
Unlike their home planet, the humans would find LiteWorld almost devoid of anything they would call land. There were few hard surfaces to stand on. LiteWorld was mostly space…..black space. So, in essence, the process of lifting or flying the humans up to and through the light rip had actually continued. We were all suspended in the blackness. And based on what I could see from the glow of the Lite, the humans did not like it.
MY first thought was to find Stan and Jolie in the pack. Communication with the humans in LiteWorld would be solely by the words projected on the Lite Papr, at least until the transformation. I had to be in close proximity for them to see and read. All of the humans were gestering and trying their best to yell or scream. I knew this would happen. But at some point they would settle down enough for me to explain to them this phase of our journey.
I located Stan and Jolie. Stan was holding onto Jolie’s hand. Both of them were staring at ME with eyes wide and mouths moving with empty silence. The other humans were just as animated but at least Stan and Jolie showed more amazement than fear in their faces. I tried to situate MYSELF in front of all the humans so they would all have a view of ME. I used MY cape to flash different, bright colors to get their attention. I waited for them to calm down.
The light flashing from MY cape was sequenced in a way that got their attention. Slowly they all stopped moving. Their eyes were focused on ME. It was time to prepare them for the transformation process. I produced these words;
” Some of you have come here willingly, many of you did not. It doesn’t matter. After the transformaton process or “The Lite Dance,” you will become what I am, without the Lite. But you will have all the same abilities and powers….and you will act as one. Once transformed you will better understand the reason for the journey and its purpose of rescuing the people of your planet… from themselves. I will take you to one of the few hard surface areas on LiteWorld. Then the transformation process will begin. ”
