Chapter 1 The Call comes
Egore sneezed and they needed to change the maps. This would not be a normal rescue.
Raybrite was seated at the large Picture window in the living room. His dad had installed it a few years ago. It overlooked the driveway and the garden on the other side. His mom had kept is so clear a bird flew into it once and almost died.
He was eighteen now and had completed high school this year and had not decided what he wanted to do next. He had considered going to the military or possibly go to college. The challenge for college was he didn't know what he wanted to be.
He watched the fireflies twinkling their lights as they rose in the sky. He always wondered where they went. It was like their batteries went dead when they were high enough. They just seemed to go up and never come back down.
It was a bright night. The moon illuminated the sky with a light blue aura that made everything outside appear like a fairytale. He could see the garden clearly with the vegetables growing. There was a place where the well used to be. He had watched it progress from a deck with a hand pump that you had to prime to get the water, to a submersible pump that his dad had installed to give us water in the house. That pump had changed our lives. No longer were we required to carry water from the pump to the house and heat it up on Saturday night for our weekly bath. Dad had also put in an electric water heater so we had hot water for a bath now. It was a great step forward.
