Different

Went walking on Hampstead Heath
leaves from autumn falls
Springing under my feet
Beautiful
peace in the world
Its amazing I never did this before
- seeing everything through new eyes
A different person almost it seems I am

Changes

Together they managed to fly until there was no more space between them and the deep skies. Through the clouds a classic Superman superhero pose, holding hands all very lover like.
Yudi had changed – of course, older, deeper, and wiser. More sculpted grooves in his cheek. A belly in between. Noticing her eyeing it he said “Yes I know”. Twins I think. They both burst out laughing.

“How did you find me” she asked? Not very difficult he said you stand out louder than neon. I never thought I would see you. Not after you just left, vanished. “I didn’t exactly want to be found,” she said.” And I am not here out of choice either” she said. “Wait let me guess. Yet again the old master has commanded you to save the world” she mimicked. Why does it come down to you and me?"

"And Egreog " – he added

"Again?"

“I don’t mind” said Yudi. “What better way to live than save the world. “

“I don’t know, perhaps living a normal life is actually an option” said Tina

“You reckon? “She asked.

He sighed. “No not really. Could do with a bit of excitement of my own. It’s time to stop living vicariously, Tina. “

Tina interrupted him abruptly. “So what else can I expect? More killer ants? “

“The Argentine Ants were just an aberration,” he said. I foolishly thought about them just before meeting you. A mistake.

“Well as long as you did not think about the real stuff that matters – in case that materializes too” she shot right back.

“That’s jut the beginning. This time, its death by boredom.” He chuckled when she looked a little stunned. “ No not really but fooled you there eh? “ It’s just starting Tina. Stay awake through this one.”

Yudi and the ants

It was very bold on his part to follow the PVC clad apparition up ahead. His sensor clearly showed the heightened pulse rates leaping up and nearly blowing his radar through. It was her. It was.
He had found the missing link again. Whether she remembered the past lives or not didn't matter to him. There was very serious crisis of epic proportions taking place on earth. This was 2012 and the end was near for humans as they had envisioned it. Only one chance remained.
If the three came together then and tracked down the missing coffee bean with elixir proportions. Considering that every coffee plantation in the world had self combusted overnight somewhere in 2005 this was no mean feat.
The Argentine ants had invaded the beans. Bunched together they were.No infighting for survival. They had overnight built large colonies of sand-paper covering the fields up in huge while domes, sucking up all available moisture, until the plants exploded.In one go.
So the huge coffee shortage of 2010 was born. Resulting in serious lack of adrenaline in the rib cages of the earth. No coffee meant no highly frayed tempers, no brows which frayed, no sweat, no deeds done, no two people who jumped at each other and a serious lack of spontaneity. A life just not worth living.

And the profiteers? Those with high levels of adrenaline. With enough to spare. Who harvested it to those with lack of. Post this coffee bean crisis. As all of this flashed before his eyes. Yudi instinctively accelerated his pace, dived into a low hung tackle and brought her down.

Together they went crashing into the trees. As she swore and straightened herself out. Yudi put up his hands pleadingly “Yes it’s me."
"Yudi?" She spluttered, “How did you..."
"Find me?" he completed her sentence "Not difficult, given your penchant for PVC."

And then out of the blue the giant Argentine ants attacked they came right at them. Together they whipped out their lasers and swung, pummeling them to the ground, till with a release of white smoke they gave up the ghost. The remaining scattered.

Yudi pulled Tina up “My fault" he said” I thought about them and there they were. I don’t know when my powers of manifestation surface. Lets get out of there, there will be more."
