A group of about 50 Viridians was gathered in an open field secured by a thick overgrowth of trees and bushes. They were communicating telepathically. So, the chance of someone hearing their voice and coming over was close to nil.
Sia was the only human present amidst the Veridians. She had bumped into two Veridians deliberately. The Viridians dragged her along since they were getting late for the meeting. They didn’t bother to tie her up as they considered her too weak to escape.
“The enforcements will arrive soon. Then, we will take over the earth!” The leader announced telepathically. The others nodded their head in understanding.
“What do we do about these humans?”
“Just kill them. They are just a bunch of useless creeps.” The leader commanded.
Sia wondered how she was able to listen to their thoughts but she had no time to dwell on it. She had to kill all the Veridians before the reinforcements arrived. This might be the only opportunity she had to save the human race.
Her heart throbbed so loudly that she worried it would give her away. Her hands shook slightly as she pressed the button on her watch.
She was about to sprint when her eyes landed on R’s beautiful green eyes. The ones that enchanted her and made her forget herself. They were laced with confusion.
She felt as if someone had pierced thousands of arrows through her heart. She would never be able to see those beautiful eyes again.
Sia never wanted to betray him but she had to do this; for the sake of her parents, for the sake of her guardian, to save humanity and to preserve the legacy left behind by her parents.
Tears welled in her eyes and rolled down her cheeks. She stifled a sob wondering how she would live with the guilt of killing the one she loved so deeply. Would she ever be able to move on in life?
Her watched beeped and the screen flashed ’00:30’. There were only 30 seconds for the blast. She had lost precious time in contemplation. She couldn’t resist glancing into his eyes once again.
R was frozen on his spot, his eyebrows furrowed as he struggled to concentrate harder and somehow get through to her. Her hands itched to wipe out those creases from his forehead.
She couldn’t even see him frown then how could endure a life that was devoid of him? Her eyes were fixed on the ‘abort operation’ button. She had to make the decision quickly else the Viridians would find out.
Zuben stirred from his sleep when he heard his mother’s sweet voice, “ Wake up honey, It is such a beautiful day. It’s time to get up.” “ Momma…..” His baby voice trailed off as he got up and rubbed his small eyes. He looked so adorable in that sleepy avatar. You couldn’t resist the urge to hug him.He got off the bed and dang….dang…dang… ran towards his mother with baby steps, the corner of his blanket still in his hand. It was made of thermal microns that kept the enclosure at a cons
Miss Sarah Zen had been working in her cabin, which was also her bedroom. The walls in her bedroom were completely covered in screens. The one facing the bed displayed the details of all the companies that she owned, which is a lot considering that they owned close to fifty. She could inspect the work-stations, give commands, take decisions, and authorize others to do the work for her using that single screen.She would get so tired seeing through so much footage that she rarely checked the footage of her house which was displayed on the screen behind th
Sarah Zen was jubilant today. It was maybe the fourth or fifth time that her husband, Arnold was sitting right in front of her. Moreover, he seemed in a wonderful mood which was so unlike his character.“ I am so proud of you Sarah! You acquired the ‘Network Jamming Chip’ for me. You are the best.”Sarah’s brows furrowed in confusion. How could she have helped him to acquire something when she didn’t even know what it was? “How did a pin covered in plumbic cyanide reach my son’s hand? I want to know the answer as soon as possible!” Arnold roared at the group of detectives who had gathered for the video conference.He felt irritation and fury bubble within him as he looked at the faces of the useless detectives and security personnel. He wondered why he spent so much money on them if they couldn’t even guard his son! He picked up the transmuter on the table and threw it at the screen releasing some of his pent up fury. He felt that he would explode i

Arnold made Sarah sit comfortably on the bed and then taking her hand in his, he said, “ Sarah, Please talk to me. I know I am wrong. I was the one who was never there for you. What I did was wrong. I should never have accused you. I was never angry with you. I am angry with myself, with my incapacity to save my…our son.” When Sarah still didn’t respond Arnold felt disheartened and hopeless. He squeezed her hands and said in a pitiful voice, “Please…..”Sarah’s resolve broke when she saw her mighty husban
Sarah’s arms ached and she stretched herself to relieve some pain. Her hands landed on something soft and warm. This jolted her awake. She had slept alone most of her life. So, she sat up quickly to investigate the source. There lying in all glory was Arnold himself. Her cheeks reddened as she recalled their passion-filled lovemaking. A loud gasp escaped her mouth as the realization of what they had done, sank in. “Gosh!! What will we do now?” Sarah exclaimed loudly.
Sarah moved up and down the room like a caged tiger. Then she sat down but she kept shaking her legs and wringing her hands. Then she got up and started pacing again. She felt the knot in her stomach tighten as she waited for the clock to strike 10:00.The moment the clock struck ten she tapped the call button on her screen. “What was the verdict?” Sarah asked before Arnold could even say hello.
Arnold paced around his office deep in thought. He felt his blood boil at the thought of what Mr. Rendall did. “The nerve of him to mess with me! Did he think that making me dance to his tune is a child’s play? Just wait and watch as I turn tables on him.” Arnold muttered resolutely and tapped on the screen.He called an emergency video conference of all the detectives and security personnel under him via his private satellite that was designed for emergencies such as this. Within moments all were online.
