* this excerpt is unedited and raw. Note that some changes to the content may occur prior to publication on March 14, 2013.
Excerpt begins with Jesca's thoughts.....
~ For the past two months, we have been
hulled up in the villa awaiting intelligence from the fellowship’s scientists
while comparing notes with the local, national, and global news.Rebel factions have already started sprouting
up all over the world.Civil riots and
protests for government assistance, world-wide governmental departments on high
alert have already started shutting borders between nations to try and keep the
chaos contained within their own countries.
As guardians, our job of protecting the
humans on this earth, and our selves, had gotten a million times harder because
of this insider leaking information. It was intended to intimidate us. And, it
served its purpose. We were only a few saviors in a sea of
frightened and confused civilians.
Ezra shakes his head and stiffens his
Dangerous thoughts start stirring in my
Nate tries to save us from our thoughts by
changing the subject. “So what’s up?”
Ezra looks up at both of us.“Sebastian is sending us on a mission.”
I feel a knot form in my stomach.
Nate sits back away from his
cereal.“What about our mission here?”
Ezra sighs, “Well, the mission here has
fled Miami and is now in Tokyo, Japan.”
I ask, “Are we going to Japan?”
Ezra, “We need to get a fellow guardian
on board with us and take care of some housekeeping at MIT first. Sebastian
hasn’t confirmed that, but I think that is where we are headed.”
Ezra nervously taps a pen on the table.
“ This fellow guardian. He may
I probe with a million questions. “You
said ‘he’.Who is it? Why would he
resist? What do we need to tell him that could make him resist?”
Ezra sighs and throws his glasses down
in frustration, “Damn it Jesca!”Ezra
doesn’t do frustration often. And my heavy line of questioning has definitely
gotten under Ezra’s skin. The feeling I get just before lightning strikes is
creeping in. This is not going to be good.
He closes his eyes for a moment. Ezra
being Ezra, I know he is trying to regainhis composure before he speaks.Nate and I remain quiet and wait.
Ezra’s voice is even when he speaks.
“Because I have to tell him things that could change everything he thought he
knew about himself.”
Ezra looks down. “Things that you may
I lean onto the table and look directly
into Ezra’s eyes. “ Us? resist?I highly
doubt that!” I sit back and cross my arms. “Try me.”
Ezra breathes deeply and looks from Nate to
me. “The implantation of the 2nd generation Copula.”
Nate breaks in, “Yeah? What about it?”
He holds up his iPhone. “A device
similar to this was used prior to travel to send a surge of electricity
directly to the Copula. The surge would act as a harness between the body’s
copper and the Copula, while they worked together to open the wormhole. But
this device wasn’t just a Copula defibrillator.It had multiple purposes.”
Ezra continues. “It was a miniature
computer.This device recorded
neurological and physical changes within the body during and after travel.As protocol, after every travel Sebastian’s
associates would pull the data collected to check for any changes or
abnormalities. Across the board, the data showedincreased levels of copper in the
implanted..The levels of copper
contributed toalterations within the
body, making the implanted superior. ”
Nate questions, “Superior? In what way superior?
Thoughts start firing in my head.
Alterationsin the body making the
Ezra is speaking and his voice is filled
with worry. I tune back in enough to hear him say, “physical strength and
speed. Psychical abilities such as clairvoyance,telepathy...”
His mouth is moving, but I’m not
listening anymore.Are we implanted? I
almost speak the words, but instead I shut my gapping mouth quickly.Nate looks at me guardedly.“Jes?”
Ezra gaze is focused on me. He is just
sitting there,waiting for me to ask.
I won’t askthe question sitting on the tip of my tongue
leave my lips.If I do, I will slip
below the surface ofreality and sink
into a sea of new truths that I willhave to resurface from.I don’t
know if I can handle that.I don’t know
if I will be able toresurface once I
hear the answer to the unspoken question lingering in the atmosphere.
