"Where exactly is Dessarae gonna be?"I asked Sierra as we traipsed through the dark, creatures of the night at ease. The shores of the city appeared in the distance as we left the tall skyscrapers and streets packed with parked cars behind, golden dunes planted among the wavy sand, the waves lapping against the shore in gentle grace. Our mission was soon to began.
"Dessarae said to meet her in the place of my dream,"she replied, pulling the strap of her sack higher upon her shoulder. "It was the beach."
"The beach?"Leo asked, carrying his own sack."Are you sure? Beaches are symbols of fun and relaxation, not departure."
"I don't know,"Sierra answered."I'm not much for knowing lately." She scanned the horizon for any signs of a six-foot-tall mutant angel. She would've been easy to spot.
"Did we pack for nothing?"Maggie asked."My back is sore."
"Maggie, you didn't even do anything,"Jenny retorted, rolling her eyes.
"Nothing is worth something right now,"Donnie said, pointing."Look."
We all turned, facing the hues of the deep blue sea. A figure stood, her back arched, her head held high, in the way of a proud mother, or loyal king. She turned her head slightly towards us, and beckoned,"Come."
I shared a glance with Leo before we stepped forward. Dessarae gave us each one acknowledge-filled look before opening her delicate lips. "I am truly greatful for your effort on behalf of my world,"she said, giving a smile. "You have no knowledge of my feelings of gratitude towards you."
"We're glad to help,"Leo said respectfully.
"I have assured you that your passage to my world would be covered, nourishments and shelter included, correct?"
"And I have given you enough knowledge about my world's terrain in advance, correct?"
"Then we are set to depart,"she said, turning away from us and towards the open sea. She raised both her arms elegantly and stressed the force in her fingers. "What's she doing?"Mikey asked, and we all shushed him, except for his girlfriend, Maggie, who was probably wondering the same thing.
"Close your eyes,heroes,"she said, still facing the water.
I watched everyone, one by one, shut their eyelids. After a second, I joined them, my vision enveloped in even more darkness than before.
"It is safe to open your eyes now,"Dessarae's voice rang out from the piercing silence. I forced my eyelids to open, blinking a few times before seeing the scene clearly. It was a warm color themed-room, with red floors, orange walls, and wooden furniture arranged tastefully. It was all we could see.
Leo was next to me, gazing at the room in confusion."How are we gonna get out of here?"he wondered aloud.
"I am here, heroes,"Dessarae called, a doorway opening in the wall.
"Guess that's our way,"Raph said, and we entered through the doorway, spilling into a large control room with an extra-large windshield painting the scene outside. At first, I saw a starry landscape with a pitch-black backdrop, but after I blinked a couple of times, I knew we were actually flying among the stars. "Are we in...?"
"Yes, we are in the place that humans call 'space',"Dessarae answered. "We will arrive in a few minutes."
"Minutes?"Donnie said."But it takes months for a rover to reach Mars. Isn't your world in a different galaxy?"
"Yes,"she said."But if I were to arrive at Earth, I must have advanced technology,no?"
"I guess so, but-"
Eight chairs popped up from the floor. "Have a seat,"she said, gesturing towards the chairs.
I tentatively edged into my seat, and a seatbelt flew across me to click into the buckle on the other side. Everyone else was adjusting into their seats as well, with a few comments to add.
"Hold on tight, heroes,"Dessarae said, and waved her arms, vanishing.
Before anyone could respond, everything went into super fast-motion. I felt every cell and being of me being stretched like taffy, into little bits and pieces of atoms. Everything gained a slanted appearance, making me feel as if I was running through the starry scene before me. I was sinking into the back of my seat, unable to move a single muscle.
I tried closing my eyes, but to no avail.
Please be over soon.
