Episode 11

“Are you ready for the test now, Alana?” Dr. Conners asks me.

I am not ready. I do not want to get into their machine and take this lie detector test. While I no longer completely trust Dr. Conners and Mr. Cash, I need them to trust me. If they do not, then my life here will be even worse. I can beat the machine. I know I can beat the machine. I can convince them to not want to test me. I know I can do that. But I do not want to do either of those things.

My power is growing. I can feel it. I can sense it. Yet, some of the choices I made have given me doubts and fears. I saved the baby. I altered time. I thought I did it for good. But maybe I caused more harm? Maybe Bob was right when he accused me of being dangerous? Maybe I am? Look what I did to poor Bob. But then again Bob did attack me. I know I can use my abilities for good.

“Ok Alana, The MRI is ready; you may follow the guard…” Dr. Conners tells me as one of the guards walks over to escort me to the machine.

I do not move.

Lily points at me. “See, she hesitates. She’s scared. She’s hiding something…”

I want to lash out, make Lily be quiet. I worry that I may lash out too hard and just make things worse. I want to stop her but not hurt her. I cannot allow my power to harm people.

I feel Lily probing inside my head. She is trying to use the situation to take advantage of my defenses being down.

I need to escape. Away from it all. I want, no, I need to be somewhere safe. I close my eyes for a second and breathe really deep. So deep, that I feel my anxiety begin to leave me. I just want out of here now.

Suddenly, a bright tunnel opens up in front of me, streaks of energy line each side of the tunnel. It is warm and inviting. I enter the tunnel without moving a muscle. I feel myself floating, flying, streaming towards the end of this beautiful glorious tunnel. In the back of my mind, I hear a voice. I believe it is Lily’s voice. The voice calls out to me, “No! Stop! You can’t do this!!” I ignore that voice.

The next thing I know I am standing in a beautiful wide-open field. The sky above me is the bluest blue I have ever seen. The sun shines warmly on me. I feel soft grass beneath my feet. So soft, I kick off my shoes and let the grass squish between my toes. It is quiet and peaceful here. Looking up, I smile when I see the birds circling in the air. It is as if they don’t have a care in the world.

I hear a purring sound. Looking down, I see three little kittens. I know instinctively that two of the kittens, a light white Burmese and big, light gray Persian are male. The third cat, a brown Siamese, is a female. The two male cats are laying on their backs taking in the sun. The Siamese is eyeing me, not sure what to make of me.

These cats look and feel strangely familiar to me. Spinning around slowly, taking in the surroundings I realize there are many little field mice scurrying to and fro.

I hear a barking sound from across the field. Gazing up I see a cute little puppy, a golden Labrador, bounding towards me. The puppy rushes up to me, waving his tail. He looks at me with those big trusting eyes. This puppy can not be who I think he is. Can he? Could I have altered reality this much?

This magnificent meadow is full of butterflies, so bright and colorful, I can almost catch them. This is indeed my peace and quiet. I just want to stay here forever. But I can’t, I must go back, back to the gruesome, harsh reality and face my choices. Yes, if they detect I lied they will punish me. I will become like a zombie. But I can stop them. I am powerful. I just cannot control this power. Yet… Maybe Bob and Lily are right… Maybe I am too dangerous…. Maybe I am losing my mind? I feel fear rushing over me, negative energy entering my every cell and fiber, it makes me nauseous.

Suddenly, I notice the sky has blackened above me. I look down and the flowers turn into dark dying plants wilting beneath my feet, the grass melts into mud. The animals are all gone, all I see are worms and spiders. I hear a strange high-pitched shriek in the air. Looking up I see bats, giant, dark, black bats bearing down on me. Concentrating on the bats that now dominate the sky I find myself feeling afraid and I cry for help.. Help! I need help! I long for the days before the accident. Whenever I was scared my mother would be there to ease my fears. For the first time in a long time I realize how much I miss my mother.

“Alana, you don’t need me,” I hear a voice say. It is a very familiar voice, so soothing and comforting.

I turn to see the image of my mother standing next to me. She is emanating light and peace.

“Mom, how is this possible?”

My mother smiles at me. It is a warm smile that always brings me joy. “You, my dear daughter, can do anything and be anywhere … You create your own realities…” Her smile widens, “Well, in a way I guess we all create our own realities with our choices. But you are powerful beyond your knowledge. Doctor Conners and Mr. Cash told your father and I that our children would be powerful, but I never dreamed you would be this formidable…”

“Wait? You know Dr. Conners and Mr. Cash?”

My mother nods. “Yes, my love, you were far from an accident…” My mother points up to the giant bats swooping down on us. “But before I go on, perhaps you should do something about those bats….”  Vote below on what will happen next or if reading in email click Take our Poll.
