Zedaron was a beautiful planet in its own cold and stark ways. There were magnificent craters all around not of substantial size; just magnificent in appearance. Its colour - varying shades of blue, more of darker hues than the lighter, were all metaphorical of its nature. "The door! Prof. Dale, where's it?" asked Anna. "Why? Right … Continue reading The Beyond #20 – Zedaron’s Enigma.
Anna was sombre. It was an exhilarating journey for her on an emotional level. But somethings did feel too good to be true. Bolt and Pieter had it easy and she herself had it easy without doing much of the explaining. How could they give up so easily? These were some of the questions that Bolt … Continue reading The Beyond #19 – The Bakers.
Jon and Anna were left all alone to themselves. It was the awkward silence that loomed all over. But not for long as the B.A.G back at Zedaron whizzed back to power and spit out Prof. Dale, Bolt and Pieter. "That thing works!" was what both Bolt and Pieter said together. Jon and Anna could now … Continue reading The Beyond #18 – Mr. And Mrs. Bill
"Okay, which one of you would want to go first?" asked Prof. Dale. Bolt and Pieter were the first to raise hands, and you could say, in unison. Anna and Jon suggested that they would have to flip a coin. "That won't be necessary," said Bolt as he turned to Pieter. Pieter was a bit … Continue reading The Beyond #17 – Didn’t See That Coming.
"Guys, you DID forget about Earth! How could you be so lost?", asked Anna in complete disbelief. Bolt countered, "No. That's not what it is. All this while, we were thinking of a solution." "And what is that?" asked Anna impatiently. "We're still thinking", answered Pieter. Jon nodded cluelessly. Bolt who was long musing at … Continue reading The Beyond #16 – Stuck In Zedaron.
Lambda Leonis had taken quite a damage to its hull. Haldus said, "Damkerng will take care of you from this point. I'll have to park this thing and also have Professor Senigus to look after, so excuse me." The door opened and Bolt heaved a sigh of relief that they were going to slide down instead … Continue reading The Beyond #15 – Arielle School Of D.A.M.E
The light was hazy as each of the four slowly became conscious. Bolt was covered in his own puke. Damkerng escorted him to the restroom. "You can remove those OxyTrons now", said Haldus. They did accordingly. Never had they seen a place this big. A few minutes later, Bolt returned. "Welcome aboard the Lambda Leonis", … Continue reading The Beyond #14 – Off To Zedaron.
All the four came out the door and to their surprise found nothing that even remotely looked like a spaceship. Damkerng and Haldus came last. "So why do we need these OxyTrons?" asked Jon. Pieter too joined in, "What Spaceship doesn't have an internal atmosphere?" "These are not for use inside the Spaceship," said Haldus. All … Continue reading The Beyond #13 – Take Off.
"So how did you guys break in?" was Jon's first question when their communication with the other side stopped abruptly. Bolt and Pieter motioned to Anna who took off her hairclip and on a touch, it transformed itself into a multi-purpose Swiss knife. "That's how", she said as she ruffled her hair straight. "Nice hair", … Continue reading The Beyond #12 – Damkerng And Others.
The beeps from Jon's computer and the message "Incoming Signal" had everyone intrigued. "I’m Haldus, the Official Respondent of Universal Headquarters for Alien Communication. Your IP address was traced many times over last few nights. According to our systems, we have identified you as a Homo Sapien, not fully grown, of Planet Earth" was the audio … Continue reading The Beyond #11 – Haldus calls in.
