I could hear the helicopter-like sound long before it came into view, going maybe three hundred feet in the air I stop from my position on the side of the road and keep looking, it followed the highway, once it got close enough I could make out the four rotors on the trapezoid shape. two in the back and one on each side. I see the red and blue cadaucius on the underside and knew it was the medical transport they sent out, took them only five minutes to get here. I shift the duffel bag to a more comfortable position and keep walking. I had seen nothing but grass, and some small hills along with cars going by at a

"Shane, did you order this?"
I look up to see mom holding a box about two feet wide and half as long held under one arm. I was helping fix up the tv they had gotten... oh which was a 56" wall mounted tv, my mom had never been good with electronics and even in twenty years she hasn't improved, though the claws made it a little harder, considering she was a dragon and all.
"Is it from Alex?" she looks and and replies with "Yes" I slide backwards away from the tv and get up.
"Wonder why it came to you... but yes I ordered it from him." I say as I stretch my wings and arms... yes wings, I'm a dragon, what do you expect? The wide open space allows me to reach my full span before folding them back up, the solid black was in contrast to the white walls and ceiling, which by the way was about 30 feet high, big
EVOlution 5 pt 2I keep replaying the scene in my mind, with his words and his actions.

The chill hadn't left my spine since he had said the last sentence and made that creepy departure tactic of blending into the crowd.
I still had time left.... maybe just under three hours, until I could get a look at all those files that I took off their servers. I lean away from the table and keep watch at the crowds in my vision, his words had made me

So here we are, just accomplished one of the things we sent off to do, and then we have to stop that and turn it back on. This is messed up, but at least I can ask Blake what's going on.
“So I'm going to ask the biggest question, why did you have us turn the magnetic propulsion back on Blake?” I say over the speakerphone.
"Well, turning it off would have fired us. We found the generator. Open Ion Fusion, and with this design, it doubles as the secondary propulsion." Good explanation, though I had no idea what open-
Alex meanwhile interrupts my train of thought with "I think I turned that secondary propulsion on. Meanw

I had trailed 101 from the apartment to halfway across the city... the sun had just started it's decline in the sky. There was something about flying that was strangely calming and yet thrilling... so much that I didn't notice where we were headed until it was just barely in sight.
“The apartments? That isn't the place I was thinking you'd head for one-oh-one.”
He air brakes and ends up grazing up beside me “Not just any apartments, yours... or rather that of the one you were cloned from.” He says nonchalantly.

The voices get steadily closer until they suddenly start fading, probably taking a turn on the hallway to another part of the floor.

I look around, we were in the middle of a parking lot near a mall. 101 and Torrent had switched places at one point and 101 was back in his human form, cursing some guy who had pulled suddenly in front of him which had quickly backed out and sped away. 101 pulls into the now empty space and shuts off the SUV.

He returns with "I know that, but think about it. The nanny bots, the infected. It all makes sense." I just give him another blank look.

Then one voice says clear and loud “Wake!” everything went black.
I was aware of the wind, the rustling sound of grass, and my own breathing. Once I opened my eyes I saw an overgrown field of grass. I push myself up onto my knees and see what lay around me. Everything was clear and vibrant, from the grass to the occasional t
