35. Far Away, So Close

We headed back to Black Swans with the newly acquired females. Stan was very quiet as he drove our tractor trailer with the deuce interior. The Lite, which had been silent for some time, was back. “I mentioned this journey would not be without some difficulties,” he thought. I was still in the mimic protective mode so Stan didn’t see any of the words from the Lite. “I need to tell the collected humans what is happening and why!” The Lite waited to respond, “That’s up to YOU.”

I told Stan to get the vehicle back to the maintenance building quickly as I knew the uniformed soldiers would start looking for us again once they woke up from the Lite Ring blast. The additional seven females brought my total army to twenty one. I had to acquire the other twenty nine soon…and the noise outside the maintenace building from flying  machines above and around the Black Swans area told me why….the hunter/killers were everywhere.

“Hey boss! I got everyone lined up liked you asked.” Stan was no longer a young college student and I was back to would work better this way, I believed. The Lite and I had discussed the incremental advances being made by the Nano material. Some new Neuro-Nanobots had been created that would allow ME to imprint certain information into the Nanobots and then transfer that information by implanting them into the brains of the humans allowing for subtle yet important modifications. We, in essence, hoped to reduce their fear levels and bring them to a more calm, rationale mode. We thought about testing the concept on Stan but we didn’t have much of the new Neuro-Nano material and Stan was already …..well… Stan.

I didn’t know how long this would take to work…if it did work… and whether or not it would be permanent. I would project the Neuro-Nanobots to everyone, except Stan, wait a few moments then bring everyone down slowly. Watching for any reaction similar to the last time I tried this. I told Stan to keep an eye on the eight uniformed humans. I thought about what I wanted to do and then the  Nano material was implanted. I watched and waited.

I looked at  my 20 plus one human army and used the Lite Ring to slowly bring them out of their trance, as Stan had once called it, and watched for any negative reaction. The humans started to move a little more and their eyes were now looking around without that empty stare they had carried with them. Then they all started talking at the same time. They were down far enough. I opened MY cape and wrote, “Raise you right hand if you can read these words.” They stopped talking and  looked at ME and slowly all twenty, including Stan, raised their hands. I continued. “You were selected for a very special journey….”
