Chapter 31-A Wedding in the Tyrol


Back on the sub base at Halffa, Reeas was looking at me with love. I gently stroked her shoulder. Zelda3 said, ‘Dan and Reeas, we are grateful, you have helped restore the

balance on Halffa, and the other planets in the group. Please

take a break and report back in two weeks for a mission.’

‘OK,’I said, I was now used to the ‘mission’ part of things.

usually they were a little more than a mission; they were

usually a full blown crisis. I didn’t even ask this time

what sort of Job it was going to be. I could feel Zelda3

was waiting for me to ask but I just acted nonchalant.

She smiled.

‘Where shall we go Reeas? I said.’

‘Let’s get married.’


‘Yes, why not?’

‘OK,’ I said!

Zelda3 said, ‘Congratulations.’ Deria said she wanted to be a


I said ‘let’s go to Austria, its perfect.’

‘Yes, Dan, it is.’

Now, you students say, how can we go somewhere like Earth when

we are in a different Universe. I say, we are trainee Guardians

and have access. Really, it is through dreams, imagination,

and memory, and Reeas and I have amassed a lot of each. One thing I knew there was going to be a lot of dancing going on.

I just thought about the classic Austrian dance by men who get

kicked up the backside, Imagine Cloft and another Tourgen doing

that, ha. (To cut out all the mundane stuff, I have not included all the usual things that the Guardians might consider wrong to put on these recordings.) I will just say the wedding was beautiful and nothing was spared as everything was free, yes, laid on by the Guardians, and of course we could also dream of the same place, and so, be there. We danced in the air all around the mountains to heavy metal music’.

I was now feeling very confident in my role as a Guardian.

My consciousness had improved beyond measure, also my

understanding of life on a multi-universe footing.

The next mission was now starting to come through from base.

Reeas said, time to get back to work Dan.’



Chapter 32-Surprising Update


Zelda3 was waiting in the briefing room, ‘This job should be

a-piece-of-cake for you two, she said.’

‘What about Deria? I said.

‘She and her Sister will be on extended leave to visit their

home planet.’

‘Now, Dan and Reeas, please come here.’

We stood opposite Zelda3 which was unnerving as she was so attractive.’

‘Close your eyes,’ she said.

‘What do you see?

‘I can see your outline. Reeas said.’

‘Yes, I can also see you, but vaguely.’

‘Good,’ she said.

‘Now, please go to the twenty-third Level of meditation!’

‘What?’ I said, ‘That’s not possible, is it?’

‘Yes, it is, you are now able to access more deeper levels now

that you are in this Universe, now again, close your eyes.’

After two minutes, she said, ‘Now, what do you see?’

Reeas said, ‘I can see a spaceship?’

‘Yes, I also can see it,’ I said ‘what is it?’

‘Please,’ Zelda3 said, ‘Just concentrate for a while.’

After five minutes, she said, ‘Now, what can you access? What

are you conscious of?’

‘I could now focus on the inside of the ship!’ I said.

‘And you Reeas? What are you aware of?’

Reeas said, ‘Yes, I can also access the inside of the ship, and

I am trying to access the records from the computer.’

‘Very good,’ Zelda3 said. Now, you can open your eyes again.’

‘What ship is it?’ I said.

‘That is your next mission.’

‘Really,’ Reeas said?


‘Yes, that ship has been travelling through space for three

hundred and seventy-five years! It left its own planet to search

out appropriate local star systems but got into difficulties.

The ships computer did a maintenance job on itself and failed.

That was one hundred and fifty-two years ago. Since then they

have been simply hoping to find a Planet suitable to settle


‘Wow,’ I said. ‘It’s the classic lost-in-space scenario.’

‘Yes,’ Zelda3 said, ‘and it is no joke.’

‘No,’ I said, ‘I didn’t mean it to be.’

Maybe I’m being a bit too ‘Dan Sherman’ I thought?

Their home Planet has long been technologically advanced beyond

the ships abilities, I want you to go to the ship and update the

computer and any other part of the ship which needs improvement.

There is also one member of the crew who is a potential Trainee-

Guardian, I want you to access her and report the data to me, her name is Tyren. As you now know, their home planet is called Amiron, and yes, it is in the humanoid universe. Please access Amiron and make sure the ships abilities are on par with their home planet. You can then send the ship back. As you know, it will only take several years to return home.’

‘How far from the Veritalanian-Meridian is it?’ Reeas said.

‘That is the trouble, It will contact the meridian in less than

five days.’ Now I was starting to see the details of this little

mission. If the ship contacts the Veritalanian-meridian it will be catapulted at enormous speed into the Non-Humanoid Universe.

Don’t ask me to give you the exact speed as no one knows, yes,

my student friends, that’s right, not even the Guardians know

as it changes all the time. The other troubling detail is

the trajectory will put it online to contact the Groveelion

border. The Groveelions, my student friends, are not very nice

people, well, they are not people exactly, but cloud-like beings

which don’t like to be disturbed, in fact they are something like the Llantrea, yes, you got, it they like to dominate space. ‘The Groveelions have already tried to warn the ship, but as you know, the ship cannot pick up any signal from the Groveelions as the ship isn’t in the same space, never mind the same radio

frequency, not that the Groveelions have radio. So you see the


‘Dan, Reeas, do you understand the implications of this mission?

‘Yes,’ said Reeas. ‘We have to get there before five days.’

‘Why was this situation allowed to get so near the critical

point?’ I said, feeling I might have said the wrong thing.

‘Because, as you know, we wanted to assess the Groveelion

technology and it is alarmingly like the Llantrea in respect

of the telepathic, or rather, higher mental ability, it is known

as ‘Ethereal-Blending.’

‘So you want us to leave it till the last minute, so you can assess the Groveelions.’

‘Yes.’ said Zelda3. ‘Don’t worry, we will be monitoring everything.’

‘Do the Groveelions know about the Guardians?’ I said.

‘We don’t think so, but we aren’t sure either way. The

Groveelions are very hard to assess as you now know. Please

update yourself from your ships computer, and take your friends

the Tourgen Clones just for effect, so to speak.’

‘We can’t fight clouds can we?’ Reeas said.

‘No, but it is always best to be prepared.’

As it turned out, we really needed them later.



Chapter 33-Dancing With Fairies


Now for you Students: Where did the Veritalanian-Meridian

get its name you ask? Well, my friends, it all started a

long time ago, sixteen million years actually. The

Veritalanian were a race of beings not unlike the

Groveelions, they conquered all space bordering the Non-

Human, and the Human Universes, this lasted for whole small-

yuga. A yuga, as you know, is a stage or cycle. Eventually

the Veritalanian were defeated mostly because they were by

now too much into peace and harmony, also they were

complacent in thinking they were all Powerful, anyway the

Veritalanian-Meridian is still very much part of the

Guardian’s library, and as such, will be on the star charts

for a very long time. The Star records are in the

base at Citadel which is the central library on the

planet Equeene. The star base is inaccessible. Only

Guardians and anyone who has special permission are allowed to

go there.

OK, time for R & R (Rest and Relaxation.) Reeas and I are

going into the dream worlds for some sweet rhythm. Imagine

being able to dance to whatever music you happen to

like but in the air, or anywhere you happen to like whether it is mountains, which happen to be my favorite, or

maybe you would like to dance underwater with dolphins, or

Mermaids? Yes, they exist, as you know. On the astral plane you

can do, or be anything you want, I say anything, but as you know

we have to do things in the name of God, or whatever you believe

God to be.

We decided to go to Deria’s Home Planet Sandora to say our

goodbyes for now. As you know, Reeas and I already visited

the Fairy Kingdom some time ago, but this world was different; it was a very spiritual place and Deria is a higher spiritual being.

We arrived to a lovely reception, Deria and her sister were

the hosts and we got the V.I.P tour. Music seemed to be coming

out of everything, any plant, or any animal, and beautiful

music, not the kind of music we know on Earth, but which is only

heard on the higher inner planes, can you imagine reading your

best loved poetry and with every word the sound current lifts

you up one notch. Now multiply that by a million!

Yes, I know it is hard to imagine, but that is the only way you

will be able to understand it, you could also look on it like

this- lose any thought of the physical body, now imagine you

are a fairy, lighter than air; now lose that animal mind, yes,

that part of you which we can’t keep under control, go higher,


don’t be afraid; now enter into that one consciousness state and

you are in heaven, so to speak. If you can understand that

my friends you are doing well. What would the music to this

experience be? You can pick as I can’t really relate it to the earthly mind at this time.

How long Reeas and I were on cloud-nine was any ones guess, I just hope we don’t have a confrontation with the clouds on Groveelion. We said our goodbyes to Deria, and Friends then simply rested.




Chapter 34-Lightship Briefing


Back at the sub base we decided to make the emergency

landing base on the asteroid known as Aulous our physical

base. It was within easy space flight of the Veritalanian-

Meridian. We would leave it to the last day then act. All

Reeas and I had to do was look again into the light book to

re equip ourselves with the language, and other such things

we needed to function near the meridian. The gravity

will be awesome, I hear you say. That is why we are taking

light suits, although the ship will be able to cope quite

easily, Debra reassured me in her sultry voice. If I didn’t

Know better, I could swear she was coming on to me. Reeas

said it was my own mind that made Debra act like this! I suppose

in a way, we sort of want the other sex to like us, so maybe that is what is happening? Debra was now saying be careful when

I just leave the ship! I will start to worry when she

changes into a hologram to attract me, and then into a robot

which she could also do easily. On a more serious note:

We have to pass through the Ghost-Zone which it is a phenomenon. The Veritalanian-Civilization who is long dead have left their Guards to worry any Groveelions, and any beings who stray too

close to their space. It usually manifests itself as mental

images and sounds that can drive people to do silly things such

as jump out of the airlocks into space. I suppose it was mainly

to trouble the Groveelions but it can affect other beings. That

is why we have to make sure we don’t let anything happen to our

friends from Amiron.

Now, you say, how can anyone be affected by the other side

of the border, which is the Veritalanian-Meridian. Well, I can tell you we would be, but for the fact that we won’t be on that side of the border, but on the asteroid Aulous, which is a safe

distance away from the meridian in the Humanoid Universe, so

we won’t get pulled into it.

OK, now you students should be up to date with everything

that has taken place so far, yes? Good. You can do a

training exercise from the hologram room at the sub base on

Earth. Don’t forget to upload your thought patterns.

OK, the day is here, we enter the ship, Debra says, ‘Hello, Dan,

how are you?’

I feel she is again being a little too forward, as she has indeed made herself into a hologram! Yes, she is still on screen but now and again, she steps out, and walks up and down the console, and I have to say she is very attractive, but as you know, she is just sensing my brain Pattern.

‘I am trying to concentrate, Debra.’ I said.

‘OK, Dan, but I am here if you want me.’

We got underway. I asked Debra to get us all the info from the

lost ship over the last few years, I noticed that Tyren had

lost her father just ten months ago, also she had lost her mother some years back. She is good learner, very quick on the

uptake with a high consciousness. The rest of the crew

are on a sort of shift system with most of them in suspended animation, there are seven hundred and forty-three

people on board, with many in long term storage; some of these were put into a permanent state of suspension because they were involved in a mutiny, yes, that’s right, they tried to take over the ship eighty two years ago. I suppose they got fed up when they realized they had an unknown time to spend on a lost ship. The records show that there may have been a habitable Planet quite near at that time, but the captain in charge at that time would not alter course. The ship itself was at the time of manufacture state-of–the-art, but as you can imagine, after three hundred and seventy five years, things need updating. For instance, the fabrication machines they have are very outdated.

Zelda3 then came on the screen, then as a hologram.’

‘I thought I would check whether you were OK.’

‘Yes,’ I said, everything is OK.’

‘You know they can only make certain substances such as cloth,

rubber, and certain plastics. If anything needs serious

building such as tools, and engine parts then they struggle as

engineering machines such as lathes were thought to take up too

much space.’

‘Lathes?’ I said.

‘Yes,’ Zelda3 said, ‘don’t forget, fabrication machines were not

the ultra-machines they are now.’

I felt like I had put my foot in it again. I think Zelda 3 has

that sort of effect on me; she is without doubt the most desirable woman I have ever encountered. Reeas knew I was having issues with Zelda3 but just let it go. Zelda3 also knew, and that made me feel even more like a fool.

Why doesn’t she change her appearance to a sort of motherly school teacher instead of an ultra-gorgeous babe.’ I thought.

‘Is this what you want?’ Zelda3 said.

‘Standing there in place of Zelda3 was Mrs. Beverly from  

high school in my next to last life time on Earth, Yes, you

got it, the one where I was killed at the Normandy landings. Mrs. Beverly was a kindly woman who liked to mollycoddle us boys, maybe because she hadn’t any children of her own. She was a short middle aged woman who looked stressed out, but I really liked her, she cared, and that is what counts.

‘No,’ I said, ‘not really, but it is nice to see my old school

teacher again.’

‘And your great, great, great, great, great, grandmother.’

‘Really?’ I said, ‘Why didn’t I know that?’

‘You would have later but no-harm-done.’ said Zelda.

No-harm-done seemed to be a regular saying of hers.

I suppose that is Karma. People in Iowa at that time lived in small towns, people knew everybody, and generally reincarnated together many times. But at that time things were not good, the depression was on, and people sometimes starved for lack of food. Crops withered in the fields, People moved away. I was glad when Dad managed to find work out of town, but I missed him. I was nineteen when I joined the Marines. I couldn’t wait to give ‘Jerry’ some stick! Trouble was, I didn’t get off the landing craft, OK, enough!

Zelda3 said, ‘Can you now concentrate,’

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘that little episode sort of straightened

things out.’

‘What do you mean?’ Reeas said.

‘I mean, I need to visit my Parents from that life time, right,


‘Yes, they were asking about you, when you died in World-War two they always wanted to visit your grave in France, but they

couldn’t afford it.’

‘So I should visit them, right?’

‘Yes, now please go on to the lost ship and do your best, my-Guardians.’

I was feeling pretty good at that moment, I can tell you. Zelda

3 calling us her Guardians, Wow!

Zelda3 was now gone and in her place was Debra. Yes, you got it,

in the guise of Zelda3!

‘What are you doing Debra?’ I said.

‘Nothing’ she said, ‘I just thought I would spruce myself up a


‘You don’t need to; you are very attractive as you are.’


‘Yes, now please get us to the ship.’

Then with a wink she was gone.

‘What are we going to do with her?’ Reeas said.

‘Nothing, I kind of like all these ultra-attractive females here with me.’

Reeas laughed, she was the most caring person I could wish for.



Chapter 35-Lost Ship


We were now within communication distance from the lost

ship. I say communication distance, but as you know their

radio, or communication system is different from ours, so

we had to alter things a little. I said to Reeas, ‘Do you want

to take this,’ referring to the job of first-contact.

‘No, Dan, you are doing fine.’

‘Very well,’ I said, ‘but you know I’m not too good at first


‘My first impression of you was very good.’ she said.

‘Thanks, that is all I want. OK, here we go.’

‘Star ship from Amiron, do you read me?’ I could by now see and

hear everything on the Amiron ships bridge, and I could tell they had only just received my message at the time it was sent. In other words, they had no prior knowledge we were near. I

could see the people in charge scrambling to the microphone.

Boy, it must have been a momentous few seconds for them.

‘Yes, please go on, who are you? Are you from Amiron?’

They were excited, and I can’t blame them. I realized they were

by now over-the-moon, but I also noticed that the ships defences

were now in red mode,  with the defence shields up.

Debra said, ‘Their weapons are trained on us, Dan.’

‘OK, Debra, I know.’

‘I know, she said, but I thought I would let you know anyway.’

‘Thank you Debra.

‘Please, Debra.’ said Reeas, ‘we are trying to contact them.’

‘I know, said Debra, I am just trying to be helpful.’

‘Thank you.’ Said Reeas, ‘we can handle it.’

with that, Debra made a sort of humph noise, and went blank.


‘Unknown ship, can you read us?’ they said.

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘I can also see your shields are up, and your

weapons are trained on us.’

The person who was in charge looked flustered.

‘Hurry up and get the captain out of sleep mode.’ He said to

one of his ship mates.

‘There is no need to panic.’ I said, ‘we are friendly.’

‘Good,’ he said, ‘we too are friendly. Will you please state your intentions?’

‘Our Intentions are to help you.’ I said.

‘Really?’ he said.

I could by now access everything I needed to sort out whatever needed to be done to get the ship back on track to Amiron, also anything else that was needed to supply and equip it. I could see the Info-Scrambler had been activated on their ship. This means they were trying to access our computer.

‘These are not very trusting people.’ I said to Reeas.

‘No, but to be fair, you can’t blame them, their computer will

be unable to access anything about us, so it is only natural they will be a little suspicious.’

‘Yes, but this guy in charge is very Grumpy, I can tell by

his thought pattern.’

‘Yes, said Debra, I wouldn’t trust him, Dan.’

‘Thank you Debra.’ I said.

By now the Captain had arrived in a very agitated state, I knew

what he was going through. Anyone who has been in deep Sleep

mode knows well enough what a pain it is to wake up. He had to

sit down to gather himself together.

‘Don’t worry, Captain Kriron, we will wait till you are rested.’

I knew that would shake them up a bit.

‘How do you know our names?’ he said.

‘We know everyone’s name on your ship; we also know everything that we need to know to get you back on track to Amiron,’

‘What?’ He said.

‘Yes, you are to be sent home.’

‘No!’ he shouted, ‘we are on a mission to find new worlds.’

‘Can we come over and discuss it.’ I said.

‘Not if you insist on trying to send us home. He said.’

‘This is going to be harder than I thought,’ I said to Reeas.

‘Yes, I suspected this would happen.’

‘OK,’ I said, ‘now what?’

Debra said, ‘Their weapons are charged Dan.’

‘Yes Debra, I said, I know.’

‘You know we will be contacting the Veritalanian-Meridian in

seven hours.’ Reeas said.

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘I know. OK, let’s get aboard their ship.’

‘Can I come, Dan.’ Debra said.

‘How?’ I said.

‘I can come as a hologram.’

‘You don’t need to come.’ Reeas said, you can access anything

we can while here on the ship.’

‘Yes,’ Debra said, ‘but I want to be near Dan.’

I glanced at Reeas with a we-might-have-a-problem look.

‘Can you actually appear as part of the ship Debra? I mean, as

a Robot.’

‘I am not a robot!’ she said!

‘No, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean robot. You know what I mean, as

part of the ship, in body form.’

‘Yes,’ Debra said.

‘Good,’ I said. ‘Yes, you can come with us Debra, will you also

be in charge of the ship?’

‘Of course, dear.’ she said.

Reeas was by now a little concerned about Debra.

OK, now for you students out there, yes, I know, it is funny that Debra is acting strange but I am not worried, after all, a

ship of our magnitude will regenerate often, so it is just

part of the process. She seems to be attracted to me; I’m not

complaining, who wouldn’t want a gorgeous female light body near

them. Reeas and I knew that with our light suits we could simply

fall out into space and fly over to the Amiron ship, and then

simply push our way in without endangering either ourselves or

the Amiron ship.

‘This should be a shock to them.’ I said.

Debra said. ‘Yes dear.’

‘Please, Debra, don’t call me dear in front of them, will you?’

‘Why not?’

‘Just don’t,’

‘All right, but I can’t understand why?’

‘Just call me Dan, as usual.’

‘OK, Dan,’ she said, sounding a little put out.

‘Make sure they can’t see what is happening Debra, will you.’

‘Yes Dan dear. Only joking, she said.’

I took a deep breath sighed and then we pushed our way out into space and then flew over to the Amiron which was the actual name of the ship. It was a giant of a craft some several thousand yards long with massive laser guns which were capable of destroying any normal craft, of course, our craft wasn’t normal. We reached the main entry door and simply, yes, I know I use simply a lot but things do seem easy when you are a Guardian. We simply walked into the airlock room then through into the main boarding compartment.

The look on the crew members faces as we walked in was one of

total shock. I saw that security people were in the room also

with high-intensity blasters at the ready, in fact, one went off

and glanced off my suit, then ricocheted into the wall making

a substantial hole. I knew the damage was serious as the air

re filter system was now in danger of failure.

‘What the hell,’ shouted one of the crew.

‘Don’t worry,’ I said, ‘Debra, get that will you?’

Debra walked over to the wall and touched it. The repair was

now done.

‘God almighty,’ Shouted another of the crew. I thought to myself

this crew are a lot like people from Earth, trigger happy,

and nervous.

‘Please don’t use your weapons anymore someone might get

injured, now take us to your Captain.’

You students know that Reeas and I are still in our

regular clothes, plus our light suits which were invisible. Debra was in a skimpy dancing dress with frilly tassels at the elbows. I was going to say something but I thought no, leave it. Also she had on very high heels and lovely earrings.

‘Please, Debra.’ I whispered, ‘can you just be normal?’

‘Why don’t you like me?’ she said?

‘I do,’ I said, ‘but we are at work.’

I could now see the crew from the Amiron were confused.

The security chief was eyeing us with menace. I could tell he was stressed out and unsure what to do. I could also read his thought pattern and knew I had to watch him with closely. I said please let us go to the bridge. He gestured with his laser rifle to walk to the main door. We walked up a very long corridor to the bridge. Debra was by now walking like a fashion model on a catwalk.

Reeas said, ‘What are we going to do about her?’

I said, ‘What can we do?’

The security guards were in front and at the rear with guns

Ready. I instructed Debra by thought to neutralize their weapons.

‘OK, Danny,’ she said.

Oh, hell, I thought, why bother, just accept it. The more I get

bothered about Debra, the more it seems to get worse. We reached

the bridge, by now, there were lots of people around us.

Why I didn’t just re adjust the Amiron from our ship, I thought.

‘Hello Captain.’ I said. ‘We are from the emergency landing base

on the asteroid Aulous,’

‘I don’t care where you are from, just go away.’ He said.

‘Captain,’ one of the crew said. ‘Can we just hear what

they have to say?’

‘No,’ the Captain shouted!

I asked Debra to assess his mental state. She informed me that

he was suffering from severe stress overload.

‘OK,’ I said, ‘who is the 2.i.C.’ (second-in-command).

People were now looking at another person in the room but I already knew who he was.

I said, ‘I am now speaking to all the people in the room.

Do you want to go home?’ No one said anything for a few seconds,

and then one young woman spoke up. I already knew she was Tyren,

the person who was earmarked for Guardian training.

‘Yes,’ I want to go anywhere, but here.’ she said.

‘I’ll have you suspended-in-time for this,’ the Captain said.

I looked at Debra, she already knew my thoughts. The Captain

was now rooted to the spot, and totally stiff.

Will you please take him to the sleep-tubes?’ I said.

The security people were still training their weapons on us.

One security man who I now realized was second-in-command of

security started to approach me. He said, ‘As my boss is in a

coma and in sleep-mode I am now taking over control.’ Then the

actual second-in-command of the ship said, ‘No you’re not, I am

in charge while the Captain is away.’ The security man then

pointed his weapon at him and said, ‘When it comes to the security of this ship I am in charge.’

I looked at Reeas. She whispered, ‘Dan, we have less than thirty-five minutes before we reach the Meridian.’

‘Yes,’ I said in a low voice, ‘I know.’

I couldn’t explain to them that a Non-Human alien race would

destroy them in a short while. ‘Right,’ I said, ‘time to act.’

I looked at Debra, she already knew what to do, everyone on

the bridge just walked off to their stations of work or rest.’

Thank you, Debra.’ I said.

‘No problem, big-boy.’ she said. Reeas just started to laugh.

Tyren was in the room with us, I knew she was somewhat

confused but she could understand something of who we were.

‘I knew you would come, someday’ she said.

‘What do you know of us?’ I said.

‘I know I see you in my dreams.’ She said.

‘Don’t even think about it!’ Debra said, taking hold of Tyren’s arm.

‘Debra, please,’ I said. ‘She is a Potential-Guardian.’

‘I know, Dan, but she has feelings for you, I can tell.’

‘Yes, and I have feelings for Reeas, what do you think of that?’

I wish I hadn’t said that, as Debra suddenly grabbed Reeas

by the arm. ‘What is happening?’ I said. ‘OK, back to the ship

and that’s an order,’

I was feeling pretty scared at that moment, I can tell you. Debra was all powerful and I knew it. I had to keep my thoughts on the job and not get emotionally involved; I know it is silly,

but I don’t know what she will do in anger, so to speak.

Back on the ship we could see a message had just come through for the Amiron ship; it said to turn away from Groveelion space or be destroyed. I instructed Debra to assess all the data from the Groveelions, after a short time we had enough Data to trim

down their numbers by mainly assessing their mental or rather etheric state. We had, by now, realigned the Amiron Ship; it could now travel home in eight point two Years, Tyren was escorted over to our ship, and she formerly accepted training as a Guardian, she was excited but not overly concerned, and that is a really good sign, it means she can cope with the stress and there will be stress, my student friends.

OK, now for the Good bit. To experience a ship like the Amiron

being upgraded by a lightship is really special, also the crew

were to be retrained in whatever was needed to get them

back to Amiron. Most of the crew were happy to be going home

although they had never been on a Planet! What would the People

on Amiron think when they get back.  All of the crews Relatives long dead!

It had been 375 years for the crew but it was twelve thousand six-hundred years for the Planet Amiron! The distance was only a paltry 350 light years, but with time-dilation you can, as it were, time travel.

For those students who want to be exact, please be aware that the ship was not always traveling at light speed, also they were

stopped for a number of years to make repairs, whatever the

outcome, they will be very late! OK, not wanting to blow

our own horns, we did pretty well I think. Now, you say, why

did we have to go through all that when we could had done it

all aboard our ship, well, all I can say is it is a learning

thing for us all, and as Zelda 3 said, we had to leave it till the last minute to get more info.

Amiron already knows about Guardians, so that won’t be a

problem when they get back.’

OK, Debra I said, back to the base.’

‘No Problem, Daddy,’ she was now also giving me a shoulder massage;

I must admit I liked it. Reeas just had to laugh. Tyren just

looked on in a confused way.


Chapter 36-Base Camp


Back at base, Zelda3 said, ‘Good job team. Tyren, please come with me you will need to be updated about who, and what we are.’ I really felt good at that moment.

‘Well, I said, we didn’t need the Tourgen-Clones did we.’

‘No but no-harm-done.’

I said, you do know about Debra, Don’t you?’

‘Yes, Zelda3 said, it, or she, is going through a

personality-acceptance-changeover phase.’

‘What exactly is that?’ I said.

‘You know she likes you, Dan.’

‘Yes, but surely it will be rectified, yes? I mean, surely she

has come across men before?’

‘Yes, but she is really a part of the Guardian-network, and also partly mechanical and linked into Mannus himself. You are from

Earth, and are also linked into Mannus. Earth is a...’

‘Don’t tell me.’ I said, ‘a lower consciousness planet.’

‘Yes,’ but don’t worry, you are beginning to lift up.’

‘When will I be classed as higher?’

‘Do not think like that, we live in the now, and that is all that matters.’

Just like Sionn, I thought!

‘Yes,’ she said, ‘we are of the same higher state.’

Oh, great, I thought, I keep forgetting she can read my mind.

‘As far as Debra is concerned,’ Zelda said, ‘she will not be any trouble, I know she took offense to Reeas, but she would not harm anyone intentionally.’

‘You like Debra, then?’ I asked.

‘Yes, she will make a very useful asset. Before you became a Guardian we didn’t view any part of the lightship as a personality, even as we speak she is cleaning the outside of the ship with soapy water, wearing a tight jump suit, and asking about you,’

‘Oh, no,’ I said.

‘Just joking,’ Zelda3 said. ‘She is being reassessed in the lab.

You will notice changes, but it is up to you to keep your

conscious mind in check, you know that Debra is the ship and any

other ship that you will have access to in the future.’

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘she wants to protect me so it is up to me to limit my thoughts to work ethic.’

‘Yes,’ Zelda3 said.

‘I’ll try,’ I said.

Reeas said, ‘It sounds a bit boring when you say it like that.’

‘I know,’ Zelda3 said, ‘but boring doesn’t come into it when you

Reach a certain level.’

‘All I want to do is dance.’ I said, ‘will you do me the honor

miss Zelda?’

‘Yes,’ she said!

‘OK,’ I said, ‘a little Latin American, maybe?’

‘Si, senor,’ said, Zelda 3.

‘I think we will leave the three out of the picture, from now

on. Is that OK with you, Zelda?’


And now for you students again: I strongly advise you to take

up dancing, it not only keeps you fit and young, but gets you

access to a lot of females and the one who takes the first

prize is Zelda! No offense Reeas! I felt I was melting in

her arms, of course I had to dance with Reeas later. You

guessed it, the waltz!

After resting, and upgrading, we take a little look into the

light book, I make sure Reeas or Debra are there to stop me from

taking in too much power, so to speak, Yes, Debra is now a

permanent part of the team. She still tries to tease me, but is now under full control, she also appears as Bridget Bardot, or any of the women I Used to be fond of as a young man, girls like Sofia Loren, and Marylyn Monro, It is quite exciting to find someone like that in your everyday life, well, when I say everyday life, nothing is further from the truth, usually we are working in space, or somewhere totally alien, and not everyday life time, anyway, as students you know what I mean.

You will think I live a pretty good existence eh? Well I can

tell you that we, as Guardians, have to control our selves

every day, yes, we are like Monks if you like, and Debra

isn’t making it any easier! Zelda said that Debra would be

more controlled, but she insists on me calling her Debbie!

I’ve told her I am married now, but she won’t have it.

I said, ‘You are the ship, and the Network.’

‘Woman!’ she said.

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘but please, just be my friend, OK.’

‘Yes.’ she said, and then she appeared as a Nun!

I told Zelda about the episode, but she said it was up to me to

keep control of myself, even when I am doing my yoga exercises she appears on my inner screen! Zelda knows what is happening and just wants me to deal with it; I must admit I find it fascinating to have a piece of Guardian equipment as my personal valet, fan, and protector. I now believe Zelda has some other reason for Debbie to become so protective of me, but I didn’t know as yet, what was about to happen, if I did, I would have been very concerned, I can tell you, my student friends. Now let us talk about the ship, or in other words, the material that makes up the ship; please don’t ask me to explain exactly what it is, or how it works, as I don’t know, yes, I hear you say, but you are supposed to be a Guardian, yes, I am, but even Guardians are limited, I just accept that whatever we need will be supplied. I feel sure Zelda knows the ins and outs of everything, but she is way beyond my abilities to comprehend. I know the ship can change its shape to any size, and go way beyond light speed, also, for instance, remember at Far-Station when I had to do everything in low-consciousness-mode, well, I can tell you that the ship at that time could not relate to me, as I was not in a higher state of consciousness. I now know why Debra is being so nice; my consciousness has increased to a higher level. Debra can relate to me, but what happens when I have to deal with a lower consciousness crisis! I suppose it will be a Far-Station scenario again, the thought makes me a little worried my friends I can tell you, I must admit, I want Debra around, and with that thought she appeared at once!

‘Don’t worry Dan; I will be here, always!

She was dressed in a sort of apron type dress that used to be

used in Iowa the 1920s, I remember my mother used to wear one

when I was about ten years old.

‘Debra, I said, ‘I must admit I like you like this.’

‘Good,’ she said, ‘then that is all I want, relax and I’ll put

on one of your favorite records.’ she disappeared, then came back In a lovely red dress with matching shoes, I could now hear

the old record player, like the one we used to have in the

1960s in England, this was my last incarnation as Dan Sherman,

It was a ballad.

‘Let’s dance,’ Debra said. I looked at Reeas, she held out

her arms, as if to say, go ahead. How could I resist?

Later in the restroom Reeas said, ‘Are you sure about

Debra being stable enough for the next job?’

‘Why? Has Zelda said something about the job?’ If I had been more conscious I would have known she hadn’t.

‘No, I mean when we next have a job.’

‘I am trying to stabilize her, or me, what else can I do?’

‘We could use an old type ship. She said.’

‘No!’ Debra shouted, as she appeared next to Reeas, I could see

Reeas was shocked. Debra had heard, or rather, I had heard, and

she being linked into my consciousness knew what I knew.

‘Please, Debra.’ Reeas said, ‘we are trying to have a


‘No,’ Debra said, ‘you are trying to turn him against me.’

‘OK,’ I said, ‘time for a break. Debra, you know I want you,

so just give me a little time with my wife.’

‘Yes, Dan, but I am here if you want me.’

‘Yes, I know, and I appreciate that.’

Zelda came into the room. Without talking she touched me behind

the neck, I was now incapable of moving or even thinking!

For Students:

This part has been added by a coworker from the records section

to relate to you students:

‘We have to talk,’ said Zelda. ‘Let us please go into the isolation room.’ Once there, she said, ‘let us transfer into the inner worlds and then into the third main level.’ Reeas knew this was about Debra. (The third main level was a separation point to the higher mental or ethereal worlds’)

‘Now, we can access the first sub plane.

‘OK team, we have a problem with Debra.’ Zelda said.

I was now feeling very light-headed.’

I had to put you into a mental block state, Dan, so we can

access and reassess your mind.’

I couldn’t speak, but I could understand when she spoke, but not

to anyone else. All I was conscious of was Zelda’s voice. Reeas

by this time was talking to Zelda about the crisis that was

Debra, the conversation went like this:

‘I feel worried about Dan,’ said Reeas.

‘Yes, I know,’ said Zelda, ‘the matter has got more serious than

we thought, In effect, if Dan is not stabilized then Debra could

create havoc; she could quite easily control the whole

Guardian Network.’

‘Surely Dan wouldn’t let that happen.’

‘No, but don’t forget the subconscious, she knows whatever he

knows, and vice versa.’

‘My God,’ said Reeas, this could be catastrophic!’

‘We might have to put Dan into isolation.’ Zelda said.

‘No!’ Reeas shouted!

‘I’m sorry, Reeas, we looked into the records to see what the

outcome would be.’

‘Yes, but you know it can also work both ways?’

‘Yes, but we cannot take any chances.’

All I can remember is the voice of Zelda telling me, that I would be at rest for a while.


Chapter 37-Isolation


Not a nice way to treat a loyal Guardian, I hear you say? All

I know is I am in a sort of small place, in fact, I thought I was in the hologram room. I was still conscious, but I didn’t know where. It took me a while to find out exactly where I was, after all, I am a Guardian, well nearly. I kept saying to myself I am Dan Sherman. I tried to contact Reeas and Zelda, but I couldn’t get through. I also tried to meditate, but no luck. I knew something serious had happened, but I didn’t know what. Some people in the physical world would say that when anything good or bad happens it is luck. You, as Student Guardians know it is not. There is no such thing as luck we earn our place in this, or any other world. I then thought, OK, let me try the Ultimate-Consciousness, yes, you got it, Mannus! It took a long time; how long, I don’t know, but I wasn’t going to be imprisoned here. As I became more conscious I found I was on the familiar hill top looking out over that very comforting view. I thought the only real thing you can rely on is God himself, and I had found mine. Without saying a word, he just looked into my eyes. I was now enraptured. I could also see Zelda and Reeas watching us from behind a glass dome? In fact, we were in the dome and they couldn’t get in. I then noticed Debra who was now sitting next to me? She looked me in the eyes; I felt a love for her that I never thought possible. How could this be?

Mannus said, ‘She is the ship, and she is the power, she is also

part of you, and being that, cannot be parted from you. Be at

rest with that Thought.’

I couldn’t wait to dance with her, so we danced in the air, where else? How long, Mannus alone knows. I felt totally rested and stabilized.

In the sub base room Zelda said, ‘You are the first being

to escape from the isolation-room.’

I said, ‘What about Kallo?’

‘Yes, but that was in the other universe. Congratulations, you

have taken a step higher in the worlds of God.’

I said, ‘You knew I would escape, didn’t you?’

‘Yes,’ and we knew where you would go,’ said Reeas. How do you


‘I feel very well.’

‘Good, because I know a certain Guardian who wants to dance with


Reeas was her usual calm self, showing no animosity whatever.

‘I said, I feel so grateful that I have all you beautiful People

in my life, three of the most desirable women to ever come into

existence. Debra was now fully under control because I was fully

under control. I now realized that it was I that was making

Debra do silly things; she could still do silly things but,

It would be me who made her. Confusing, I hear some students

say. Zelda said, ‘Dan, how do you think Kallo escaped from


‘I have often thought about the same thing, I said. I had to go

to the highest source in the Universe, so God alone knows where

he managed to get to, or who helped him?’

‘Well, you can find out.’

‘What?’ I said.

‘Yes, he’s escaped again!’

‘Do you mean he’s here in this Universe?’

‘No.’ Zelda said. ‘We want you, Reeas and Deria to go back to the Humanoid Universe.’

‘And me’ said Debra!

‘Yes, and you.’ Zelda said.

‘What about my new consciousness? Will it not be too high for

this job?’

‘No,’ said, Zelda, you still have a long way to go.’

Thanks a lot. I thought.

You’re welcome.’ Zelda said.

‘Yes, I guess I am still low. Can I ask you something?’ I

said to Zelda.

‘Of course.’

‘How is it that Kallo can escape so easily?’

‘That is what we want you find out?’ She said.

Stupid question, I thought.

‘Yes,’ Zelda, said.

It was now starting to sink in. Kallo on the loose again!

Reeas said, well, Dan, ‘Here we go again.’

Yes, I know.’ Debra then appeared and said, ‘Don’t you

two worry, I’ll take care of him.’

I looked at Reeas, she smiled. Deria was now also with us, and

ready to do battle.


Chapter 38-Return Home


I must admit I was excited to be meeting Sionn again, but on

the other hand, I was sad to know I would be leaving Zelda.

‘You can come back in your dreams, you know.’ Zelda said.

‘Really.’ I said.

‘Yes, you met Mannus, didn’t you?’

‘Yes.’ I now realized I was able to come and go in both the Human and the Non-Human Universes.

‘Hold it’ I said, ‘what about Reeas?’

‘Yes, also Reeas and Deria.’

‘And me!’ Debra exclaimed.

‘Ah, yes, and you.’ Zelda said smiling.

‘They can’t part the old team eh?’ I said. Meaning Reeas and Deria, but Debra said, ‘No, Dan, they can’t.’ I thought I will have to control her more.

‘Yes, Dan, you will, but I will still be here.’

I must admit though the trip home was a cracker! We decided to use the ship to do part of the very long journey just for the excitement of surfing the meridian. Yes, my Student friends. It is a phenomenon that happens when two universe’s meet. You can imagine the awesome gravity. Like an almighty wave of stars.

And we will be riding that wave for some several trillion miles. We were, as you know, (sorry if I keep saying ‘as you know,’ but, you really do know, don’t you?

On the human side of the meridian, all we needed to do was wait till the wave was at its highest, then simply, (sorry if I keep saying simply but it is)ride it back towards home. Debra would calculate the exact time. I can tell you my friends, it was a very special experience. Why? You say. Because we rode it as a Santa clause sled. Yes, that’s right. It must have been Christmas somewhere, so we decided to celebrate. We even dressed up for the occasion. Of course, I was Santa Clause. You had to be there to appreciate it but you can easily imagine it. Yes, as students you can actually be there. Yes, I know it is a bit silly, but we felt like being a bit silly for once, and as Zelda said, no-harm-done. God, I will miss her. Yes, I know I can see her in my dreams. I felt a bit melancholy as we flashed through the universe. It would have taken us a hell of a long time to get home as you know.

So we had to simply, (again) put the ship on auto pilot, and let it return to the nearest base with our physical bodies, as we dreamt our way back to the Earth base.

Debra was OK about it; she will now be part of the ships fleet when we get back to Earth. We were safe enough in our light

suits on the sled so when she turned back into a normal

lightship we slept. I don’t know why I am relating these simple

matters to you, as you are Student-Guardians and you know only too well. OK, just one more song as we power down and take in some awesome starry beauty, a Christmas Carol Just for Sionn, Grenwer and company. Now it was time to sleep.

You Students already know you can go anywhere you are allowed

to go, and do whatever you are allowed to do. That’s right, my

friends, you have to earn your way to heaven, so to speak. The

higher you go the more beautiful the experiences. Well, I am

going to see just how far I can go. I have a feeling I am needed

on a certain Plane. I am pulled upwards, how far? I don’t know,

but I know that I hadn’t intentionally wanted to go in any one

direction. I felt as though I was being taken somewhere. My

senses were telling me that there was no danger ahead, but I was

now in unexplored territory. Imagine this, my friends, I see

Kallo’s face, yes, his classic villain looks, there, staring at

me! Where? You ask. All around the landscape! As I become

focused I am now on a mountain top looking out over a vast range

of mountains as far as the eye could see and farther. I was

looking through my astral-body eyes, or rather, the eyes of

whatever body I was in, and whatever plane I was on. All I know

is Kallo was here, looking at me from all of the mountain tops!

How could this be? I thought.

‘I’ll tell you, ‘Trainee-Dancer!’ He said.

Not again, I thought.

‘Yes, fool.’

‘What are we going to do with you?’ I said.

‘Nothing, because now, fool, you will be completely unable to do anything. You have been lucky up to now, Trainee. Can’t you see I am vastly more experienced than you? Look where we are!’

Kallo was now holding out his arms in a gesture of self-assured

arrogance. ‘I brought you here to prove I can reach the higher regions. Did you think I was limited to the lower planes?’

My head was starting to ache, how could this be? I was in the

astral, mental, or one of the higher regions and I didn’t know

which, with the worst villain in the Universe! I have

to get myself together, I thought. Is Kallo trying to control

me or my mind, or my spirit? One thing I know is I am in a

place that disrupts my whole being, and Kallo knows it! All

I wanted to do was have a peaceful time on a higher plane.

‘You are going to be here for a very long time,’ said Kallo.

‘I’m getting really fed up with this, Kallo,’ I said.

Suddenly it went very dark, and the landscape changed.

I was now in a very dark, depressing, and eerie place. OK, I

thought could Kallo be trying to bluff me once again! My conscious mind was telling me that I was somewhere in the higher

regions, but my inner self was saying no! One thing was

for sure, Kallo was having a serious effect on me.

‘Don’t worry, Dan, I’m here.’

God, I was glad to hear Debra’s voice. I was then aware of Mannus!

The place was filled with the brightest light. Kallo was nowhere

to be found. I then realized I was only on the 36th level of

the astral Plane! How could it be? I thought. Debra said, Kallo

is very good at influencing people. He has had a lot of practice

at it.’

‘What was he trying to prove?’ I said.

‘He was hoping you would believe you were on a higher level, then he would try to alter your consciousness.’

‘Is that possible?’ I said.

‘Yes, don’t forget you are in one of his planes, you were

also in a state of disbelief. The Mind can believe it is


But I would have eventually found out.’

‘Yes, but that could have taken a very long time. I believe Kallo is trying to get you out of the way for a while. You were on a sort of beautiful dream trip, and unprepared. I suggest you put into cold storage your beautiful dreams for a while.’

You are right, Debra, ‘I’ve always had a weakness for beautiful


I know, Dan, as I am part of you, I know what you know.’

‘I am eternally grateful to you, Debra, you have certainly proved that you can protect me and anyone else.’

‘I only want to protect you, Dan. Would you like to dance?’

‘Why not? What type of dance?’ I said.

‘I know what you like,’ she said. ‘Disco.’


Chapter 39-Earth Base


‘Once again, Kallo escaped.’ I said to Sionn.

‘Yes, but now we know his whereabouts. By the way, welcome home,’

‘Yes, I said, we really missed you.’

‘But now, you really miss Zelda?’

‘Yes, but we can see her in dreams.’

‘Yes, that is now possible, you, Reeas, Deria, and

Debra are assets we would not like to be without. We are

still trying to get Debra to cooperate with whoever else is

in charge of a lightship, but at the moment, she is only

concerned with you!’

‘Really,’ I said.

‘Dan, you must distance yourself from her.’

‘How can I do that?’ I said. ‘She was the only thing that saved me from Kallo.’

‘No! You would have realized sooner or later.’

‘Yes, but as Debra said, it could have been a very long time


‘Nevertheless, we want you to work on the inner-planes from

now on.’


‘Yes, you will have to work without using the lightship.’

‘What about the Team?’ I said.

‘You will still see them in your dreams.’

‘Yes,’ I said, ‘but for how long?’

‘For however long it takes.’

‘How about us going back to the other Universe?’

‘No! That would still be the same.’

‘What does Debra think about this?

You know she already knows.’

‘Well, why doesn’t she show herself?’

‘I’m sorry, Dan, we had to isolate you when you checked in, that is why Debra isn’t here.’

‘Do you mean I was ambushed?’

‘Yes, we couldn’t take a chance, you will be taken to the

isolation tubes later.’

‘Thank you very much.’ I said.

‘Don’t worry; it will only be for a short time.’
