38. One Little Victory

Five….that’s all I needed to complete MY Army. Three females and two males, then we could go back to LiteWorld. For all this planet has to offer it doesn’t provide the same comfort as the dark void of MY home. Yet, taking the 50 humans back there for the “transformation” and then returning here seems the right thing to do.

I could tell Stan was still a little shocked from MY comments since he hadn’t said much on the drive back to Black Swans. As we started to unload the 24 newly acquired humans the Lite gave me some advice. ” It is time to finish the collection process. There are too many uniformed humans searching for you and getting back to the light rip now is essential.” The sun would be up in a short time and I needed to make this “final five” collection trip on MY own. “Okay,” I told the Lite. “I’ll get everyone ready so when I return with the last five humans we can depart quickly.”

I told Stan to take some of the food we had collected on a previous trip and make sure everyone had something to eat. “Keep them together in a group and get ready to load them onto the truck as soon as I return. “Boss”…..Stan was talking again. “Man I am sorry about getting out of the truck but I thought I could help YOU.” I looked at Stan. “You need to follow MY instructions Stan….it’s for your own good!” Stan read the words on the Lite Papr. “Gotcha boss. I’ll take care of the……Army.”

Taking the truck out again… matter what I made it look like…would not be safe. I only wanted to use it one more time and that was for transporting MY complete Army back to the light rip. I was going to have to walk to find the last five. I had seen a set of small structures not too far from the entrance road to Black Swans. It was a short walk from here. Hopefully I would find what I needed in those buildings. Up until now I was very selective and only collecting the younger humans. Today may be a different story.

As soon as I left the maintenance building at Black Swans I became reflective. The walk down to the end of the entry road was further than I remembered. The sun was coming up and I could see the shadows from the small structures extending down across the land in front of each building. There was a small group of humans coming out of one of the structures and moving toward one of their vehicles parked next to the structure. I moved close to them. There were only four..but at least there were two females. They were like the college students we recently captured in that they were young. But again, only four.

I directed the Lite Ring toward the two males and two females and then imprinted them with the Nano material to control them. Not thinking, I changed back into MY natural form and started to walk the four humans back to Black Swans. “Hey mister cape man?” I quickly turned toward the high pitched voice ready to use the Lite Ring again. Running after us was a very small human female waving here hands in the air and with a smile on her face. She stopped right in front of ME and said, “Are you the cape man they talked about on TV?” I looked down, opened MY cape and wrote, “Do you think I am?” She smiled and made a funny sound, jumped up and down and said, “Yes.”

I took a step back and thought….”If I take her MY Army is complete…but she is very young.” Then the Lite broke MY thought process. “Get her and go…now.” I moved closer to her and wrote, “What is your name?’ She smiled and clapped her hands and replied, “My name is Jolie.” I took her hand, directed the other four humans to follow ME  and started walking back to Black Swans .
