QV18Vote until June 2, 2014!

In the previous episode, Jason helped Alana get free of Bob’s grasp and reassured her he will find a way to help her escape. With little left to rely on, readers voted that Alana finally choose to trust him.

Episode 18

The rest of the night passed quietly, but I could not sleep all that well.   I only knew that I wanted to leave this lab, this place, as quickly as I could. Yes, this was the only home I had known my entire adult life, but I did not like how Dr. Conners and Mr. Cash just wanted to use my powers. I now could see that though they claim to be my friends they really only wanted me for my power.

I also knew now that they suspected the power I had exhibited was only the tip of my abilities. They proved this by setting up dampers preventing me from physically teleporting myself away.   I was actually kind of impressed that they were prepared. From what I could tell, these dampers generated some sort of electromagnetic pulse that could prevent me from moving my molecules past them. One thing was for certain; I was not going to be able to leave while those were in place. I was going to have to trust that Jason would figure out a way to disable them.

Even though my room was windowless, I could sense the sun had started to rise. Soon Dr. Conners and Mr. Cash would want to prep me for my trip to the Brighter Day Cult in Wyoming.   While I do not like the idea of letting them profit from my powers, I still wanted to help.   I could sense this cult was dangerous and needed to be stopped. I could give the FBI the information they needed.

I have made up my mind. I will travel to the cult and see what I can learn. I know I can do this myself without being submerged in a sensory deprivation tank. I lie back in my bed and take a deep breath, and then another. Relax, I think to myself, just relax. I picture myself floating up in the morning sky through the air to Wyoming.

The next thing I know, my astral self is floating above a complex of buildings surrounded by a barbed wire fence. Outside of the fence are many police and FBI agents. The agents are nervous, anxious, I can see it in their posture. I can feel it in their aura.

Looking down I see there are three big, white-roofed, cement buildings. I have had some training in surveillance. I believe one of the buildings is a dorm, another a storage area and another a meeting area. This is where the leader, a man who simply goes by the name of Adam, preaches to his followers. I sense Adam and most of his followers are in the meeting area. I move my astral self inside the building.

There, standing on a big wooden stage in the middle of the room, is Adam. He is a tall, graying man with green eyes that seem to glow with craziness. I get a chill just looking at him. On the stage next to Adam are four young girls, who have been stripped down to just their underwear. The girls are chained and blindfolded. They are shivering and crying.

Around the stage, staring intently at Adam, stands forty-five people all dressed in jeans and grey shirts. Out of the forty-five people, thirty of them are men, each of the men are armed with AK-47s, side arms and knives. I examine the walls of the building; they are thick concrete. Any assault here would be costly.

Gazing at Adam on the stage I see he is about to speak.

“My followers, my blessed disciples as you know my word is law!   My word is the only word. My word is the word of god. Those outside, those nonbelievers, would lead you to believe their ways are right and ours are wrong! We must show them that my way is the only way.   My way is the gateway to heaven and true bliss. I am the sun, the earth, the moon and the sky. Obey me and your lives will be well spent.”

Adam points dramatically at the girls in chains. “These girls with their sinful ways represent all that is bad with the world. We must show them and the rest of the world the right way! We must sacrifice them so the world will learn that our way is right, their way is wrong.”

I am disgusted by his words, his actions, and his very soul. I have gathered the information I need.   I can return and give this information to the FBI. Yet, if I do that these young innocent girls will surely die. Perhaps I can use my abilities to save them and stop Adam? But what if I cannot stop him? How will I live with myself?       Vote below on what will happen next or if reading in email click Take our Poll.
