21. Crying Won’t Help You..Praying Won’t Do You No Good!

It had been a while since I had one of those comfortable feelings. And looking at this situation with the two soon to be selected humans, that issue wasn’t going to change. It seems that MY reliance on the Lite for answers to every question was coming to an end as it seems the Lite has left the process of contact and human army selection up to ME. I have “all the tools” the Lite has told ME over and over again…… so let’s see if I know how to use them. “YOU need to get started before they leave!” I know,  just give ME a moment.

Okay..first I need to remove the reflective covering and then quickly spell out something on the Lite Papr to capture their attention.  Remove reflective covering, I thought. Now spell out these words;  “Take me to your leader.” I instantly became visible and the words were there on MY cape. The two humans stopped talking, looked MY way and began to…..laugh. I guess I made the right choice of words because they were not running away and not pointing any weapons at ME. Just then the female human pointed at ME and said, ” I think the wacko’s are out today, Bill.” I assumed Bill was the name of the male human. “Yep, cool costume though. I wonder how he does the letter thing?”

“It’s easy,” I wrote. ” I just think what I want to communicate and the Lite writes the words, or puts images on MY cape or Lite Papr as we call it. By the way, how would both of you like to join ME in MY journey?” The two humans looked at each other and then the male human spoke. “You know Nora, what he is doing is damn impressive. Especially the fact that he can form those digital words on that flexible material…and it is very bright and clear.” Nora looked at him. “Okay, that’s cool…but what about the “we” thing and his journey?” Bill looked at ME for a few moments. “Uh, thanks for the demonstration pal, but we gotta go..and thanks for the invite.” Then they both turned and stared walking away.

“Take them!” The Lite wrote. “They are intelligent, inquisitive and evaluate the situation before making a decision. They meet the majority of our primary requirements.” I moved almost without thinking and placed MYSELF directly in their path. The humans were obviously startled, as was I, by the speed in which I moved. “I need to restate the issue about MY’s not a request it’s a demand!” Bill and Nora jumped back a few steps. Bill had a shocked look and Nora was moving her lips but nothing was coming out. “Hey buddy, this is not funny anymore.” Bill’s voice was appreciably louder than before and Nora’s lips were still moving in silence. “And we’re not going anywhere with you.”

“Time to use the Lite Ring.” I looked down at MY cape at the same time Bill and Nora did. The Lite knew what had to be done. “Stun them,” it wrote. Bill read the letters….”Stun who?”…. “Hi Bill and Nora, welcome to MY journey.” I told the Lite Ring to stun them and before either human could respond the flash from the Lite Ring hit them. I had collected my first soldiers.
