*SONG* “Original Sin” by Taylor Dane

.

.
Outside of time and space
Refugees from war torn decimated worlds
Found sanctuary in a secret place…
Where they forged a civilization beyond conception
A society, a federation that pledged
To Watch over, and learn from other worlds
In order to one day save the universe
From an Ancient Evil, a Dark Empire
That threatens to control and destroy
All life.
These unified lost refugees in their
Newly formed secret society became known
As the Watchers…
And they have been Watching US, and all worlds
For a very long time.
You are absolutely free to believe whatever
You choose…I share these stories
Because I was asked to…
Months ago I related a story, a gift
To me…magical, that I passed on to you
Of a Watcher named Ceres, of an ancient
Royal human bloodline…It was the story of
How she came to Earth to serve her duty
To Watch the animals of Earth. Of her own
Heart and mind she saved two bear
Cubs from death, and in the process altered
Theirs and the order of nature by
Fortifying the spirit of unconditional
Protection and love to the weaker Mother
Bear transforming her into a legendary
Ferocious mother. This is the further
Expanded story of…Ceres and the Bears…
She, Ceres, had infused the love for
Her baby bears into their Maternal instinct…
Unknowingly creating an unstoppable Blind
Rage into Nature. Elders and Ascended
Masters of Tellus, the Watchers hidden
Homeworld…were forced to hold a tribunal,
To punish Ceres for breaking their
Most sacred universal law of non-intervention.
But the hearings at the Capital were
Plagued by heated debate…
The damage would have to be undone.
The only way to do this was to send back
An elite assembly to a time when
The bears were still new, as a means to
Reset their original nature.
So the Watchers of Earth were sent
Back to an earlier time, with these
Ascended Masters…
To the days before a great cataclysm
That reshaped the Earth, before an Ice Age,
Before a flood, before a pole shift that
Eradicated all surface life and traces
Of human existence…
They returned to a time just prior to this
Devastating apocalypse…
To a time where cities of Gold and Diamonds
Filled the lands…where Emerald Cities
Rose green and glistening to the sky…
It was not an age of sticks and stones,
Nor rags and tattered frayed garments
Where people roamed like animals
Grunting for food and struggling to
Spark a fire…
But it was in fact an age of glory…
Of Kings and Queens and finer things,
Much grander than we know now.
These were the days of Atlantis…
Of Attan, Arcadia…and Lemuria…
An age of Super Science…
A superior age built by the First Fathers
And Mothers that escaped a Dark Empire’s
Slavery…The first Adam’s and Eve’s Empires
Of Earth.
It was an age of luxury and technology
Beyond compare…but it was also a time of
Wild reckless indulgence, of gluttony and
Greed. Everyone lived like royals…
Morals were of sparse understanding.
The lands were full of many religions,
Many cults and scientific practices as the
People struggled to understand who they were,
Where they came from.
They called to the stars for answers,
And the stars answered the people’s
Cries…by Dark Messengers…of an
Empire they had, unknown to them,
Escaped thousands of years earlier…
The Dark Kind answered…The Dark Ones
Answered…and with them secret Alien
Visitors who entreated and tempted the
Leaders in order to consume this Lost World.
So here this story begins…with a Watchers’
Ship…led by the Great Leader of the Paladium,
And last of the Lion Men, BR’Riel…
A host of his disciples…The accused, Ceres
And Apollo of Earth…And Vala, Ceres’s sister
And Master of the Mind Sciences Academy…
In order to travel secretly in time, to
Avoid any and all detection by the Watchers
Of present…as well as any Alien Dark Kind
Of the Empire they must reside at a
Higher dimensional level to stay
Completely hidden…
BR’Riel, the Great Black Lion Man sat
In the captain’s chair observing the view
Screen…A dozen of his Lion Men apprentices
Surrounding him…all robed in white, they
Almost appeared to be like a court of
Heavenly beings, like angels with lion’s
Faces, noble, good and grand with fantastic
Powers…
Apollo sat at the panels piloting the ship
Guiding them from the knowledge he knew
Of his station on Earth from ages before…
He knew of men, of the people’s ways…
Though nothing of the animals as that was
His associate Zinn’s job…yet still he could
Guide them.
Ceres stood center of the bridge, robed in
White, her apprentice’s garments, as her
Uniform had been withheld for trial…Her sister
Vala there for support…yet also as a chief
Specialist of Mental Sciences unlike any other;
Few could compare to Vala with powers of
The mind, both from her teachings and
Exceptional talents. The two golden blond
Sisters were legendary in their beauty
And skills…The scene was extraordinary, if
Not surreal.
Apollo positioned the ship at a safe
Anchored spot…Then took a deep breath as
He awaited orders from the Great Lion Man
Commander.
BR’Riel watched the view screen…The ancient
Image of Earth looked innocent enough from
So far away…The vast blue oceans and green
And brown land continents…The swirls of
Cloud formations…It appeared to look the
Same as countless other inhabited worlds;
Believe it or not many worlds in our universe
Look the same at a distance.
“To what age have you brought us?” BR’Riel
Asked Apollo. “Where are we?”
Apollo took note of the readings on the panel
And continents below them on the view
Screen. “It is the autumnal season…The
Atlantean continent lay below…
These are the last days of Atlantis…before
The cataclysm…”
The Lion Men grumbled and talked amongst
Themselves by their language then telepathically
Consulted with BR’Riel. Something was wrong,
They had not been informed of what their
Senses told them…There were temples on
The Earth below, Lion Men temples!
BR’Riel growled… “My people were on
This planet? My men say they sense the
Echoes of Lion Men on Earth!”
“The Adam ship that in part colonized
The Earth held the last slave labor lot of
Lion Men.” Apollo quietly answered, looking
Down to his lap; he wore the blue uniform of
A cadet as punishment. “Just over one hundred
Survived…but there were no females of that
Kind…The last of them died ages ago.”
Although he wanted to explore this further he was
Bound by the Watchers Law to follow protocol
And strictly assess just the animals,
Specifically…the Bears. He then
Ordered Ceres to take a position at
The paneled seats, to quickly summarize
The animal life of the current Earth.
Ceres humbly sat at the familiar-like station
And began processing readings of animal
Life on Earth…Her mind moved quickly,
The computer was a mere processor. But
As she took in the data, she became
Distressed and confused then turned to
Apollo. “Zinn held this position before me,
Correct?”
“Yes.” Apollo simply answered.
“The animals…” Ceres said with confusion
As she studied the data. “This is the state
Of the planet BEFORE the cataclysm?”
“Yes.” Apollo nodded strangely.
“Life should be abundant.” Ceres said
With irritation. “I see the long extinct
Traces of reptilian leviathans…The rise
Of classic mammalian species as on
Most worlds…but there are so few of them!
The planet is FULL of people…Where
Are all the animals?”
Apollo studied his data yet recalled
His own memory of the past and present
He knew… “Before the cataclysm…
And Dark Kind’s invasion…The people
Used many species…for food, for ritual
Sacrifice…for experiments…for farming. I
Do not know the full details of the fate
Of the animals then, or now, that was not
My position…That was Zinn’s job.”
Ceres became more angry. “Over 80 percent
Of these species are on the verge of
Extinction! The people used the animals
That much?”
“Apparently so.” Apollo said. “Perhaps that
Is why Zinn was so bored…He frequently
Commented there was little to watch.”
Ceres breathed harder as her eyes
Devoured and explored the readings. What
She saw was horrifying. “The oceans have
Been drained of life…The land animals…
Their populations are sparse…There are
So few left, with the exception of these
Insane numbers of abominable genetic
Creations on farms…FOR FOOD? Where are
The wild ecosystems? The herd animals?
They are so remote it is ridiculous!
Although I see the human population is
Exploding!”
“I do not know how to answer you.”
Apollo said. “As I have told you I did
Not study the animals…only the people…
And how they used them.”
“I see the Bears are on the verge of extinction
Here as well!” Ceres snapped. “How is that
Possible BEFORE a cataclysm?”
Apollo thought carefully retracing his
Memories of events…He had so been
Disheartened by it all…By the people’s
Behavior then…They were corrupt, lazy
And greedy…over indulged in everything…
The various religious cults were insanely
Worshipping every fantasy notion they
Dreamed up under drug induced vision
Quests…They saw Gods and Monsters in
Everything, and equally regaled themselves
As gurus in spirituality and divination…
There was an abundance of seers which
Saw into space…or rather, dreamed up
Stories of what lay in the reaches of the
Stars…There was a fine line between fantasy
And reality then. The only commonality
In the world then was in their shallowness
And materialism…A strangely familiar
Scenario.
“Well?” Ceres demanded to know.
Apollo tilted his head in wonder, then dove
Into studying data at his panel as he searched
For the memory. “I do recall
Something…There was a man, before
The cataclysm…He did catch my eye.
I remember…He was touched by a light,
Or so they said he heard a voice, and
Was visited by a mysterious messenger…
And he built this great…boat…that
Somehow, rather miraculously, survived
The cataclysm.”
“A man built a boat?” Ceres laughed,
Shaking her head. “Are you joking? How
Could that possibly affect anything?”
“Well he built this great boat,” Apollo said,
“And as I recall he filled it with all sorts
Of animals…That’s how they survived the
Cataclysm and repopulated the Earth.”
“That’s ridiculous.” Ceres said. “How is that
Possible?”
“I believe his name was Noah.” Apollo said
AS he searched the data for him. Then he
Became disturbed. “Something is wrong.”
“What is it?” Ceres asked.
Apollo scowled in confusion. “These are the
Last days of the great cities, of Atlantis,
Attan and Lemuria…The elections will end
Soon…The Darkness comes…I see Noah…
But he has not built the boat!”
“What?” Ceres asked.
“You don’t understand.” Apollo explained.
“That boat was essential…There was something
Magical about it! It survived a torrent of
Awful things…Without that…ARK…There is
No future…all other life is destroyed. Noah
Needs to build that boat, and he hasn’t yet…
Something is very wrong.”
Ceres studied the view screen, the image of Earth,
Then turned to the Great Lion Man BR’Riel, her teacher,
As he sat in the captain’s seat. “This is ridiculous.
It makes no sense…There are hardly any animals…
And now he insists a great boat saved life
On Earth by carrying it through some awful
Cataclysm?”
BR’Riel studied the Earth carefully, as did his
Lion Men disciples… “This was a neutral zone
In space…yet…I sense a Draconian presence.”
Apollo turned to him… “There was a great snake
Cult at this time…The people, with their sciences
And cults bred these enormous snakes for worship
And sacrificed to them…In particular, the Eves…
Or rather, a secret order of female seers…
It was influenced by the Dark Kind that were
Lured to the planet by their blood sacrifices.”
“That’s insane and barbaric!” Ceres exclaimed…
“What woman would worship a giant snake?
They consume their food ALIVE…”
“There were so many religious sects they
Worshipped nearly every idea.” Apollo said.
BR’Riel thought carefully. “This Noah, you
Said that he was touched by a light?”
Apollo nodded. “Yes, it was the First act
Of divine intervention I witnessed…There was
A blinding light upon him…Then soon
After he began building this enormous
Ark to hold a collection of animals. He
Was an agricultural scientist studying the
Diverse species…and their extinction. But
His specialty was with the birds. He kept many
As pets, in fact he trained them and flew
Them often…The people called him the Bird Man.”
BR’Riel was intrigued. “Show us this…Noah. Let
Us observe him.”
Apollo set the coordinates into the panel and at
Once the view screen displayed the home of
Noah…as he worked in his home…It was
A modest looking estate compared to the palaces
Around him. A stone home, similar to Ancient
Greek construction…It was fueled by natural
Solar power and something akin to windmills.
He had a home laboratory where he studied
In great detail the genetics of animals…all
Kinds, especially mammals and winged
Creatures.
They watched as this handsome middle-aged
Blond man in robes was cataloging and
Diagramming the state of current animal life.
“The planet is undergoing a highly unstable
Transition.” Apollo narrated. “Scientists of
The age were attempting to manipulate the
Weather and control tectonic plate movement
With sonic technology…unknowingly they were
Causing more harm than good…both to a very
Volatile region in this western ocean, some called
It the Ring of Fire…”
“Sonic devices destroy the crystal matrixes
Of a planet’s core.” BR’Riel responded. “They
Were unaware of this?”
“They became aware…too late.” Apollo said.
“Still they pushed ahead…and destroyed one
Third of the planet’s crystalline nerve network…
And then the upper levels of the atmosphere
Deteriorated…from pollution…and the
Sonic weapons…”
“So of course the planet’s rotation became
Unstable, then shifted.” BR’Riel responded
Unhappily as he watched the screen… “So then
The planet responded by moving, shifting its
Axis…They…with their self-proclaimed
Sensory awareness were oblivious to the fact
That the planet as a vessel for sustaining
Life…was in fact itself…alive?”
“Correct.” Apollo said.
“The idiocy of geniuses.” Ceres laughed. “So
Obsessed with their over indulgent brilliance
That they were blind and stupid.”
Apollo laughed. “Correct…As we have learned
From other worlds…The traditional mistakes
Of civilization…They make very intelligent mistakes…
Over thinking and not seeing the simplicity
Of answers.”
On the view screen, in Noah’s home…
There was an interruption as his wife
Came home.
“His mate?” BR’Riel inquired.
“She was a youth counselor at the local
Educational academy…” Apollo explained as
He observed readings and recalled the
Memory. “Their society was plagued with
Your predictable wanton, reckless youth…
The children ran wild, like little monsters,”
Apollo explained. “And the parents,” he laughed,
“Were of little use…Few even regarded the
Idea with concern at all…It was as if they
Made babies for pure entertainment…”
“Filthy and barbaric of course.” Ceres
Replied as she tossed the wave of her blond hair
Over her shoulders… “Still, we are here about
The animals!”
“Watch,” Apollo nodded and gestured towards
The screen.
Sara, Noah’s wife was not your typical
Woman of the day. She was strong
And independent, sometimes too bossy…
But absolutely devoted to her job and duties…
She entered her husband’s home
Laboratory, his obsessive
Behavior…He sometimes went days
Without eating. “So how is your work
Coming?”
“The animals are vanishing at an
Alarming rate.” Noah told her.
“We are supposed to be an advanced
Society…and what happens…The
Animals disappear first. This is appalling!”
“You should see the children I see every
Day.” She told him. “THAT is appalling…What
Is happening to the world? No one cares anymore…
About the animals…about their own children!”
Noah mumbled as he studied tissue and DNA
Samples at his desk. He was observing the last
Samples of the last baby rhinoceros which he
Kept in a stable nearby; a sub-species now
Extinct.
“Noah, did you hear me?” His wife asked.
“Yes, my love…The children.” He said.
“Are what?” She grabbed his arm for him to
Look at her. “Have you heard a word I said?
You haven’t come out of your lab in days
Since that night…the light came to you.”
“I have to do this.” He said. “It’s important.”
“And what is it you are doing exactly?” Sara
Demanded as she faced him sternly, her sweet
Face and long dark hair made her seem like
A stone judge. “Are you listening to me at all?
I am trying to tell you about my work…MY
Work…about the children…”
He sighed not knowing how to answer her.
“I don’t know what to do with you anymore.”
She said. “You won’t listen, the moment I
Even mention children—“
“You know how I feel about that.” He replied
Fast. “With the state of this world…The greed,
The chaos of society…The corruption of our
Governments…Our neighbors are consumed by
Shallow pleasures…They don’t even say hello
Anymore…Except to offer solicitations for more
Parties…The orgies…”
“Dallas, your best friend asked about you
Today.” His wife said fast. “I saw him and his
Wife on my way into the city. He said he hadn’t
Seen you in days…And then he tried to speak
With you and he said you ignored him.”
“The man is having sex with his children’s friends!”
Noah snapped bitterly. “A man of his age!
His children only just entered the academy!”
“Dallas?” Sara said in shocked horror. “How do
You know this?”
“It was the subject or our last conversation.”
Noah grumbled. “He was so proud about it…
How virile and young his stamina was…”
“With Elyssa?” Sara was in a state of horror.
“His daughter’s friends?”
Noah froze to face her coldly, numbly. “Adam’s
Friends.”
“His son?” Sara’s eyes bulged. “But…the boy is
Only sixteen!”
Noah watched her face carefully. Why was she
Surprised? There were no moral laws on such
Matters…Even marriage held little meaning to
Most anymore…People whined how difficult it was
To be with ONE person…the same person…
Commitment was so unnecessary…at least in
The eyes of the world they knew. “You ask
Me to be a father…in a world like this? Do
You truly trust your neighbors? Do you trust
The schools? The other children?” A silence
Passed unsteadily between them. “Tell me
Then…what shocking news you were going
To tell me about your work with the children?”
Sara hesitated but held firm to her beliefs.
“There are still some of us who want to raise
Good children for a better future.”
“Some.” He corrected. “Not most.”
“Something has to change.” Sara said. “And
Someone has to be the one to do it, to speak
Out for it.”
“A handful of like minded people are not
Going to change a world of selfish fools.” He said.
“Our days are numbered…The scientists all
See it coming.”
“Well some of us have to live today, Noah.” She
Defended. “As I was about to tell you…At work
I have been counseling this group of children…
It’s awful…6 of them…3 boys…3 young
Girls…I have never seen anything like it. Their
Parents abandoned them…”
“And this should surprise me?” Noah laughed.
“With all these bizarre religious sects today?”
Sara grimaced then continued. “There is a boy
Who was brutally beaten because his skin is
Too dark, another because his eyes are too
Small and slanted…and another because he
Is too large and overweight…And the girls!
Young girls! All thrown out by their parents
Because they were taken against their will
And are pregnant…One is only 12 years old!
Such pretty girls…Babies having babies.”
Noah looked down. “That is awful yes.”
“They have no home…They live at the hospice
Because there is no where else to put them.” She
Said.
He studied her… “Are you trying to suggest we
Take in these abandoned children?”
Sara merely met his eyes sold and strong…
Yet hopeful. She was indeed suggesting that.
“You cannot be serious!” He nearly shouted.
“We have no room. I am no father…I
Have no mind for such things…You know
How I was raised, I barely survived my
Own parents…And you expect me to father
These strays? What could I teach them?”
“You could teach them what not to be! What
They could or should be.” She defended. “Or
Simply just learn to love them…The way you
Do your animals.”
“You are a woman of faith in miracles!”
Noah laughed. “Will a star fall next out
Of the sky with the divine messengers to show me
How to save the world?” He laughed louder.
“Ah yes, Noah…you are a good man, here
Save the human race…save the animals…
Teach them things, show them things. Tell them
There is a greater power to believe in
Because the world they know is crumbling to
Pieces every day…Time to build a better one!
What should I build, Sara, what should I
Build to save the world? Tell me…Someone
Tell me…Because surely I have absolutely
No idea what to do, how to do it…when or
How…All that I know is that we are running
Out of time…There is a light in my head and
I have absolutely no idea why or what to
Do with it!” He slammed his fists down on the
Table then stormed out of the room…seeking
The quiet company of his pets, who loved
Him quietly without conditions…
Watching from the ship…the captain’s chair,
BR’Riel studied the screen carefully… “A light
In his head? What is he speaking of?”
Apollo thought carefully. “Earlier he was
Visited by a blinding light…I could not see it,
All that I know is that it appeared and
Apparently left something in his head.”
BR’Riel sat back carefully… “I have heard
Of this before…Among people there were stories,
Legends…of visitations by divine messengers…
That placed a light in the minds of select
Individuals before our world was plundered.
They never knew why…They were unable
To understand its meaning…only that it
Happened…Before the Conquerors came.”
Vala, who stood at the center of the room
Thought fast of her teachings. “I have
Read about such stories…Also, this happened
On other worlds that fell to the Empire
Before they were consumed…It was a
Mystery…They did not know what to do
With it…Yet still, it speaks of hope…of a
Higher power…”
BR’Riel studied Apollo…considered their
Objective and mission…of the Bears…Yet
This current development suggested a greater
Problem… “You said this Noah…built some sort
Of vessel?”
Time seemed to slip into a surreal stream,
The hours, minutes, moments to the dimension
Of Earth became like a filmstrip…And
Apollo’s mind began to turn…He recalled the
Day Ceres came to Earth, of her beauty and
Charm and glamour and wit…of her
Wonder and confidence…The way she
Acted without hesitation…out of love
For those little bears…The way she took
Them in and sang for them, defying the
Laws of the Watchers by her passion and
Faith in knowing what was right and wrong…
Apollo had been a wild rebellious boy, bruised
And scarred by the loss of this home, his
Family, his world…Tamed by the Academy
Of the Watchers…enlisted to serve a
Hellish role observing and recording a
Remote planet Earth…Why? By the Great
Star Elder?
He winced at himself, at his own actions on
How he had watched and done NOTHING…
While Ceres had only just arrived on Earth
And within moments saved two little bears,
Raised them with lullabies and loving
Care…then imparted them with her greatest
Gift…and defended them ferociously.
She was a Titan…Then by this he felt strong,
Then he knew what to do…
Without asking he turned back to
His panel, accessed the whereabouts of
Noah…as the man sat lonely, confused
And afraid in his stable with his pets…
Quietly struggling for answers to his own
Endless questions…
Then Apollo took the crystals of
Projection and reached out with his mind
And spoke to Noah…
“Noah…” He called out to him with a
Thundering voice that echoed through
Dimensions…yet one, only Noah could hear…
“Noah…Noah listen to me…”
Startled, in shock, in awe…Noah sat up to
The voice and listened…
“I’ve been watching you Noah. I know you…
I know your mind, your heart…your deeds…
I need you to do something, Noah…
No questions…No hesitation…
I want you to build an Ark, Noah…
A great Ark to carry the animals…
All the animals…And your family…
From a terrible cataclysm coming…
Now listen carefully and do as I say…
Build it four times ten cubits high
And forty more times cubits long…
Build it fast for a dark hour is coming…
A dark hour where the sun shall not shine
And the skies will weep for 40 days and
Nights with rain then snow…then it will
Grow very cold…You must act very quickly…
Do as I say Noah…do not hesitate,
Do you hear me?”
“Yes,” Noah said to the voice that spoke
From above… “Yes, I hear you. Who are you,
What are you?”
“Just do as I say, Noah. All that you need to
Know is…that I am, that I have Watched
And seen your deeds…and I know you are a
Good man. The world has grown corrupt, Noah…
And a dark hour of a great chastisement
Is coming…Darkness will fall upon the Earth,
Madness will come…The people will look for
Peace and search for answers and they will
Not find them…so in this I ask of you to
Save the animals who have harmed no man…
Save them so that they can fill the Earth anew…
Great waters will soon cover the Earth…
You must act quickly.”
Noah thought fast and heavily… “But, the
Animals how am I to gather them, yet
Alone…build this ark?”
Apollo thought fast from what he remembered
And knew of the cataclysm…The pole shift that
Brought the rains, the snow and moved the
Oceans to flood the land…But he had never
Studied the animals! Man was all he knew…
He remembered how the Adams and Eves
Paired off…of how on his Homeworld, farmers
Traded livestock in pairs at the markets…
“There is nothing you cannot accomplish,
When you put your mind and heart to it, Noah.
I have faith that you can do this…so do it.
Do not hesitate…Take the animals in
Pairs…one male and one female of each of their
Kind…and fill the ark with them…I will
Send them to you…Do not hesitate…
You must move quickly…the darkness is
Coming Noah…The rains are coming…
And the snow…Soon waters will cover
The Earth…Go now…You must move quickly.”
Noah immediately went to his workshop
To feverishly begin drawing up the plans as
The voice directed…And he did as he was
Told…he did not hesitate, for he was motivated
Unlike he had ever known…
On the Watchers’ ship’s bridge…There was a
Silence of mixed shock and rage…BR’Riel
Sat in the captain’s chair stunned silent…
He could not believe his ears, what Apollo had
Just said and done! They had come back
To save the Bears…and now this?
But Ceres was the first to speak, or rather
Scream and shout with new fury.
“What have you just done?”
“What choice did I have?” Apollo defended
Sharply. “I was here…he built the boat…he
Should have built it by now…I was merely
Following the orders of the timeline…”
They all watched Apollo with wide eyes and
Amazement…Their most sacred law of non-
Intervention had just been violated beyond words!
“If he does not build this ark,” Apollo
Defended… “There will be no future life on
This planet at all…No generations to come…
There will be NO BEARS AT ALL!”
BR’Riel had to admit, there was truth in
Apollo’s reasoning. Yet still, the manner of it…
The suggestive dialogue was…boundless. He
Could not argue this…for the Earth was full
In the future he saw…He could only sit and
Stare and say nothing…That’s one of the
Reasons Lion Men rarely spoke others
Languages…He just sat, stared, listened and
Watched…What would the Postulate say of this?
The Senate? He would be forced to say nothing
About it to anyone.
But Ceres saw other concerns to scream about.
“You impulsive reckless idiot!” She yelled as
She stood to face him as he did her. “How
Arrogantly stupid could you possibly be?!”
Apollo scowled angrily. “I did not defy the
Timeline! This is what happened! The man
Built an ark and filled it with animals…
That is how they survived and repopulated
The Earth for the next ten thousand years!”
“What fool could believe 1 male and 1 female
Could repopulate a species?” Ceres shouted. “Do
You have any idea of the disastrous effects
On their genetic integrity this would be? Such
A compromised gene base would utterly
Eradicate their DNA! The inbreeding would
Totally destroy species, the mutations would be
Incomprehensible! They would undergo such
A metamorphosis…it is unimaginable! Their
DNA will crumble to bits, trash…Their life spans
Would shorten so dramatically…They would
Hardly have lives at all! If any even survive
The catastrophic mutations!”
“It is not as though it would be any kinder
To humans, Ceres…” Apollo defended. “It
Was the beginning of the Dark Kind’s toying
With their DNA to begin with…Besides, I did
Not do this…I told you…The man built the
Ark…it was built by now…I am merely
Following the directive of the timeline!”
“By playing God?” She screamed.
“I did not decide this.” He repeated. “It
Happened this way…I cannot explain
Why it hasn’t happened already!”
“Perhaps…” BR’Riel calmly interrupted with
A thundering noble voice… “This is a
Greater scheme we were meant to assist…
We were all brought to this point in time
To play a part for some higher reason…”
BR’Riel’s words fell heavily upon them…
Silence then.
Still Ceres could not sway her anger. Apollo’s
Deductive reasoning was madness! If this
Was the course, no wonder the animals she
Knew in the future were so wild and strange!
Her mind frothed with rage and logic
Desperately seeking a solution. “There is
Absolutely NO WAY to appease the survival
Of these species this way…1 male and 1 female,
The idea is ludicrous! That such a man
Should find this scheme to impart on
Some innocent mind…it is REVOLTING! If
There was a way I would leave these
Idiot men off that ark completely!”
Then…it struck her…the brainstorm…no men?
How…the females she observed, the mothers
Raised their infants ALONE…The males merely
Impregnated them… “Save the Mothers!”
“What?!” Apollo spat.
“That’s the solution!” Ceres declared with
Eyes wide dancing with ideas. “It is
Mating season…The females will be heavy
With babies soon…I can search for the
Females with the greatest pregnancies…
The largest litters…That will give them more
Offspring quickly…more pairs, more diversity…
As many as possible! That’s it! Fill the
Ark with pregnant mothers…That’s the best
Way!”
“If a cataclysm is coming soon…” BR’Riel
Reasoned… “It is the best option.”
“And what if the offspring are all females?”
Apollo laughed.
Ceres grimaces. “I will be able to tell what
They carry inside…I can sense the sexes
Of the babies…Besides those chances are slim.
I will select them…And I will send them
To Noah, to the Ark.”
BR’Riel nodded…The plan was sound…
“Go…make it so…Let us see this done
As quickly as possible…so that we may
Return also as quickly as possible…And
No one will speak of this outside of this
Room ever.”
And so it began…Ceres, in her flowing
White gown and robe, with her long golden
Hair and sparkling eyes went to visit
Noah that night bathed in glowing white
Light…accompanied by two towering
Lion Men guards…that resembled some
Ferocious Noble Ethereal Angels also in
Their white robes and sashes…
A mesmerized Noah awoke from an
Exhausted sleep where he had passed out
At his desk to the sight of the most
Beautiful vision he had ever seen in his life…
She must have been an angel, she had
To be…with two fantastic warrior angels
To protect her…
And with a kind song-like voice she spoke
To the humble awestruck man…For
If you ever saw her this way, wouldn’t you
Be speechless?
“Noah…” She said softly. “I’ve come to
Help you…This deed set upon you, I know
It’s difficult…It must feel impossible…
But you must listen to me…I will
Send you the help you need…But I need
You to do something for me…for the
Animal’s sake…Do not take the 1 male and
1 female…on the ark…Instead I will
Send to you pairs of pregnant mothers…
They will carry the seeds of life of
Survival…Aside from the birds that you
Love so much…those you must take in
Males and females…for they lay eggs…
And the frogs and the turtles and the lizards…
But leave the serpents out, let those beasts
Swim…But as for the mammals…
Take only the pregnant mothers…You
Understand the nature of animals and
Why it is better to do this…
Save the pregnant mothers, Noah.
Will you do this for me?”
Noah swallowed in absolute awe…Her
Words were a song. Oh, how beautiful she
Was. “Of course I will.” How could he
Say no? The light of her presence
Was indescribable.
“Thank you, Noah.” She said with a tearful
Smile. “I will help you. I will send them
To you. Do not let this matter
Concern you. You just build the ark…
As best you can and quickly…And if
Anyone says it cannot be done…
Ignore them. This is important, Noah.
Believe…There is nothing you cannot do.”
And Noah began to build that ark…
With a fuel unlike anyone ever knew…
