Long ago and far away, there lived an entity who went by the name Script Keeper, I refer to him as Abatu. Little did people know of this 'godlike' being, save the few. The more that Abatu wrote, the easier it became for him to control his imprisoned minions.
Abatu's specialty was enhancing the lives of many only to suck them dry with every swipe of it's ink pen as it dripped off the parched pages woven in time.

The day was nearing towards Abatu's demise, it could not be ignored or dismissed any longer. Yet, the longer Abatu drew this out, the more difficult and skewed the words it wrote became. It's world as though on fire, looked nothing as it once did. Confusion grew, and people turned on each other in their own, self deluded madness. The last Time of Times was upon the Planet, and soon all would end leaving nothing but the residue of a dream which was but is not.

Part I.
The entity i call Abatu, existed nowhere yet everywhere. It pondered on the reality it had forcefully created against Wisdom's will. This thought entity knew nothing else, save what it desired in it's own mind. Abatu created all that you see, from the edge of the Earth to the depths of the Sea. But without Wisdom it could do nothing but sit in continuous contemplation of itself, and why it existed at all. The great sadness it felt like an ocean overwhelmed by tears. The darkness within it so evil, there was no heat that could quench it's fire.

It lived souly for itself, for it knew no other way of being. Enraged with anger, it sought day and night the innocence of those who knew it not, trapped in this mirrored hell seemingly forever. If only they knew, she thought to herself... Raeya knew, for she had awakened from the dream and longed to go home back to where she belonged. Back to where true Peace existed outside of this subliminally deranged place. She stood at the top of the hill looking down upon the City lights, and it's people so blinded by it. Did they question any of it? Did the world seem odd to anyone but herself and the few she'd met along the way?

Part II.
As Raeya walked quietly along the well worn and beaten path, she came across a piece of parchment laying at the side of the road. It's appearance was ripped and slightly singed on the edges. The words she could not make out, were some type of dialect she'd never seen before. As she leaned down to pick it up, the heat coming off it made her drop it suddenly. What the... she said. What are you, that you'd be so warm as to burn my hand upon your touch? She leaned down once more and studied the ripped piece of parchment, with great curiosity.

Raeya knew a Man who studied ancient languages, and thought she'd give him a call. If anyone knew what this said, it was Dr.Flint, so with ever such care, she picked up the corner of the parchment and placed it into her bag then rushed home with great enthusiasm. Being only 4:30 in the afternoon, she figured Dr.Flint would still be at the University, so she eagerly picked up the phone upon flying through the door of her house.
Hello, Dr.Flint's office how may i help you? Said the Secretary. Hi I'm trying to get a hold of the Dr., said Raeya hurriedly. Is he still around? Why yes he is, please let me put you on hold one moment. Good thought Raeya, he's still there! She'd carefully taken out her treasure and gently laid it onto her dining room table, still amazed at the heat it held.

Hello Dr. Flint here, how may i be of service? he said. Hi Dean, said Raeya, I've got something to tell you, and I'm wickedly excited about it, can we do lunch sometime? Say tomorrow? Dean laughed, as he knew Raeya well and her enthusiasm was like no other he had ever met. OK ok, what do you have for me this time my girl? This is nothing like you've seen, I felt this crazy burning sensation upon picking it up. The words on this parchment look foreign, ancient even. I can't for the life of me figure out what it says and well... I knew you would be the guy to ask she said smiling.

How does...hmmm... 2:30 tomorrow afternoon sound? I've got an hour to burn before my seminar, said the Dr. Perfect she said! I'd love that Thank you Dean! See you then! She hung up the phone swiftly and looked for a container to place the parchment in. She'd found many items over the years and always showed Dr.Flint first. It wasn't long before they fast became friends through their love of the mysterious and unladen. However, she'd found more often than not, her findings ended up being little more than a dead end. So this was big this new find, and Raeya couldn't wait to find out what it all meant.

Part III.
Raeya in all her Wisdom, rose early Friday morning. She kept thinking about what she'd found and what mysteries might be discovered deep within it's written symbols. She sat and ate some toast and two eggs sunny side up for breakfast, as she stared inventively at her find. She discovered one thing that had changed however, the old tattered parchment no longer burned when she touched it, yet the burn marks were burned into the edges of it's torn remains.

She dressed herself in joggers and a light t-shirt, grabbed her runners and headed for the front stairs where she sat tying up her laces watching blissfully as the sun rose high in the eastern skies. She looked at the time, 7am. Right she thought silently, I'll go do a few jogs around the park down at lakeside drive then take a look online to see if i can't find something that resembles this thing.

Still something in the back of her mind felt all too familiar, as though everything was animated and was meant to happen with her incredible find.

Hot and tired after her run, she made her way up the driveway to her cottage style house in the suburbs. She liked it here, it was always so quiet and she loved to listen to the beautiful sounds of the Starlings early in the morning while she sipped her sweet organic tea, silently watching as the world awaken from it's slumber.

Part IV.
It was getting close to 2:00pm so Raeya gathered up her things and headed out towards the cafe where she and Dr.Flint always met to discuss new theories and share their findings. Upon her arrival she noted she was 15 minutes early so grabbed a nice window seat table keeping the parchment in her bag close by.

Dean! she smiled upon seeing the Dr. it's so good to finally meet up again, it's been a few weeks already. Dean smiled widely giving Raeya a giant hug. You could see the crease lines around his light sea blue hued eyes, and that weathered look that always made him look so sophisticated and wise. Now, he said, lets sit down and take a look at this amazing parchment you keep talking about shall we? as he tosseled his thick blonde hair back with his hand, in anticipation.

Raeya carefully pulled the box from her bag, and placed it onto the table in front of Dr.Flint, removing the lid and revealing the contents. Dean stared at the parchment with curiosity, pulled out his magnify glass and took a closer look. Well, he said, i must say this is past interesting. He squinted his eyes, as though memorizing every pattern; every symbol. I've never seen anything like it, you've found something rather unique and possibly quite rare indeed, Raeya. He reached for his glasses and placed them on his face, then looked up at Raeya and half smiled, eyebrow cocked, 'Where did you say you found this again'?

Part V.
This may be the most incredible find of our time, said Dean. Would you mind if we went back to the laboratory and took a closer look Raeya? Not at all she replied. You know what, lets take lunch with us she stated matter of factly, as she walked towards the Counter and ordered 2 ham and cheese sandwiches and a couple of piping hot coffee's to go.

Back at the Lab Dr. Flint placed the parchment out flat onto a steel table, then began to do some tests with a very expensive light machine. You see that Raeya, he said, pointing to the corner of the parchment. That my dear, is what is called spontaneous combustion! Whatever type of ionic charge happened to this, was pretty damn powerful. Powerful enough to burn your hand, which means it couldn't have happened too long before you found it, whatever it was that did this. Dean suddenly jumped up of his chair and grabbed his paperwork.

Oh damn! I forgot I have to give a Seminar in 5 minutes! Raeya would you stay here for a while, i'd like to continue with this afterwards, give me an hour or so would you please? Oh course responded Raeya, i'll stay here and hold the fort, mind if I use your Computer? i'd like to do a bit more research while i'm waiting for you. Not at all he replied, "you go right ahead he shouted" while running out the door and madly down the hallway towards room 102.

Part VI.


Upon much research Raeya heard Dr.Flint walking towards the door. Oh good she thought out loud... It was a hot summer, now nearing night and she was feeling somewhat exhausted when there was a sudden burst of energy which flooded the hall straight
into the lab where she awaited.

The heavy steel door behind her flung wide open, and there standing in front of her was something shethought existed only in movies. Almost laughing out loud she said, 'DEAN' that was an Awesome entrance what are you up
to this time?! You scared the hell out of me btw! She said smiling.

There was no sound from this Man, Dressed completely in black. Oddly, He seemed familiar to her somehow... She stood staring at him in complete awe. Incredibly the Man in black began communicating telepathically with her. Raeya tried to process what she could,
as fast as she humanly could.

Man in Black: You're not from here Raeya, we've been attempting to contact you for aeon. It's been a long time since we've made contact. This was our last attempt... Whatever you decide from this moment on, is your choice. Just know this... you
aren't what you think you are, you aren't Human, you come from another place where you are loved and adored more than you've ever known here on this 'earthen planet'.

You were left here to be cared for due to the wars between our Planet and that of our Enemies. It destroyed us and we spent millenia searching for a new place to inhabit. Two of your Earth
decades ago we found a place we can now call our own. We knew we'd taken a chance leaving you here but the choices were few... Wanna go for a Ride?

Raeya was beside herself, her mind began to spin with questions as she tried to 'reason' away what was being conveyed into her mind by this ever familiar, Man.

She looked up at the Man in black and said, what about Dean? Dr.Flint?

Man in Black: Worry not about Dr.Flint he will remember nothing, do not worry he will be just fine. We haven't much time Raeya...the eleventh hour is upon us, you must make your choice now. You have a twin soul waiting for you, you've always felt him but could never fully understand where this deep wanting came from. This will be your destiny now, if that's what you want.

Raeya's mind continued to fracture, this was too deep. I have a twin soul, as in soul mate she pondered out loud...She always felt out of place here, as though this World she was in was an entrapment in which she was subject to endure, seemingly forever.

The thought of going home intrigued her deeply, it was her every thought since she could remember... She had no parents alive, no siblings, and few friends by choice. Trust was something she never handed over easily, this was her destiny, she felt it.

Again she stared up at the Man in black, no more questioning his words. She'd never felt more trust in a stranger than she did at this very moment in time. And like a dream, she walked slowly towards the Mysterious Man in black. A sudden rush of peace swept over her like a wave as He removed his hood. They locked eyes with what felt like forever. His heaven sent blue eyes deeper than the sky, revealed all she had missed her entire life.

She understood everything for the very first time. As he took her in his arms, staring deeply into her forest hue'd eyes, then kissed her passionately. He took her hand tenderly and walked through the gates of time and into the far unknown towards their destiny. It was the most memorable Summer either of
them had ever experienced up to that point or ever would again on Planet EA (Earth).

The Beginning...

I like this awareness10. Your writing style gives it this kind of breathless pace and drives home the tone that Raeya just doesn't feel at home here - something's off. Really well done!
